of ticotlaod. Thegrndold saint, whom Scot

or al claimed as tnolr guardian or pat-on , was
tho first disciple who, as a poor fisherman,
came to Christ. Even tradition, however, has

fho stands foith 2lo Ions in her power
uud in he- victor over iguoianco and
opprttstoii, the ireevt aud best-governed na
tion upon earth, except our own Unltd State.
No nun who has heard of ilayna Cltarla of
1215, ol tbo petition of right, the bill of rights,
auu her habeas corpus acts, cau doubt Eu
l.iud's 1 .ve of personal liberty, her re-pect
for tberlgbisof personal properly, her Jealous
reg ud for the protection and safety of her cit
izens. These great enactments are part and
parcel of our own constitution and lawr.
America has a right to be proud of England,
of Ireland and Scotland. Fromthatgroup of
Islands lu the far Atlantic came tbe essential
principles ot her government; irom those
l-lands came the brate anu hardy pioneers
who lashtoned her forests Into teeming cities
and bnllt up a mighty republic on her soli,
thiough whoso constitution and lawsbrenihes
the spirit of KnglKh love of liberty, and of
lhat English doctrine "that all power Is a
trust for tho public good." The principles of
our Dec.arailiu of ludependenc , and much
that la great in the constitution ol tlie United
Mtates, though tbo growth of American soil
were Irom imported seed. They were but the
richer blossoming forth of thoso reeds of clvl"
and religious freedom which the hands ol lib
erty-lovliig men had sown broadcast In the
mother country centuries before the days of
1TTB. This confession Is due to tho memory of
the batons who, at Uuunymede, wrested tho
great chsrtcr from Ring John; due lo the land
of HaiujHlen, Cromwell, Bacon, Newton,
L"Cke, Hilton, Shakespeare and Chat hun,

fathers made so illustrious, and which led to
the final and perfect development of civil and
relig-ous liberty In tbeee United stales All
prft'se, 1 1 cu, to tho country to which the land
of Washington owes so much, whese gracious
quceu to night Scotland's sons honor In this
t last. Mr. President and gentlemen of the
Ht. Andrew sicicty, I hazard nothing before
so gsllnnt an assembly as this In giving ex
pression to the sentiment that every woman
s a queeu In right of her bex. This being al
lowed, in what language of emcgy, then, sir,
may 1 be permitted to speak of her majesty,
Queen Victoria? Kotslncothe days of Sein
iiamts, the celebrated queen of Assyria, not
even excent'.ne Ehzabtth. whose reiiin was
Justly called the Augustan age of England,
lias a moimrci sai upon any turone more
uortnyof the corul.il esteem and respect of
ni'n and women everywhere, than the
piesent relpnlug sovereign of England,
whrse highest claim to tbo homage ot all
nioii throughout the world Is that she has f ur-nl-hid
her tex: an illustrious example of a life
of usefulness, of duties well performed, and
days well spent, not only as Ihe monaicb ol a
g en empire, but as a faithful aud loving
wife, a tender, uentlQ and christian mother.
"I)ui,"sas general Kobert E. Lee, "is the
s iblimest word In our langnage," and Eng
land's queen, from all that wo can learn, baa
niaus duty to nernnioanuanu ner cnuarcn,
tohcrc-.-unlry and ber people, the gtilding
siarof her llle. Asnqueen she has teen for
tunate In the love and loyalty of her subjects,
lri the prosperity ot her omplc, in the vls
tloiuof thelegUlallunof her parliament, the
expansion of Kngllsh trade and commerce,
tho advancements of English arts, and tho
undlmmcd luster of English arms; but It Is in
hr woman's sphere if wife aud mother,
rather than that of queen, in which she has
been most fortunate, in which history shail
know and honor tier most, and In reference to
wuloh she shall bo most reveied of men. lu
tuo cl rob of her home she Is queen, Indeed,
"aud her children rise up and call her blessed."
During her relgu the Iron hand of power has
bien lifted from tho people, and England Is
to-day only less democratic than the United
Stales. The history of England during her
re ignis a vindication of the poetic truth that
"Peace hath her victories
Ac much renowned as wars."
Hlr, I e.teem It n pr-vllege to speak lo the
toast in honor of such a woman as England's
que n. Not that we have not scores of queen.
ly women in our own innu, every wnit as gooa
as her majesty of England women, who
tbougb not queens in the political sense of tho
word, aro beau'lful with the virtues which
make Victoria m eater tbau uuecn-but that
such a woman Is an honor to the sex all over
th? woild. aud in particular to her beautiful
and queenly sisters of America. In tneir
name, sir, linanK you and the St. Andrew s
society for an opportunity of expressing thus
brielly my admiration of her majesty the
queen, whose life Is conclusive proof if proof
wore wanting that a woman has accomplish
ed what few men have yet achlevej-narnely,
occupy, wllh dignity and elllcleucy a high
and te.-poni-ibloollico an ofllco against which
the tierce lignt of public criticism constantly
beats aud jet keep her royal name and fame

like this. Ihe name "United States" is sig
nificant of the peculiar form ot our govern
ment States United! United, to give
strength and power abroad and protection
and detente at home. It was cot even In the
conception of those devoted patriots who
bantized tbls then provincial country as
"United States," that the government they
were luut Christening wouiu rise in so snort u
time, It ever, to that grandeur and greatness
wnlch t i-day is the pride and gjory of every
American patriot. From a few provincial
organizations. In less than a century, It has
grown into a great circle oi fiaies, ea.cn
Stale In Its territorial expanss, lu Its material
resources and In population, almost a nation.
Tnclr combined power constitutes a
strength rarely. If ever, equaled ty any na
tion. Ksfiozen north and genial south con

staid not only sends lis mighty throbs
through the smsller arteries andveluaof our
own mountains and valleys, but pubatcs
through the flow uf lis commerce over the
broadest ssasand to tbe most distant lands. It
Is tbe monaicb ol all streams; a nt emblem
o the giant btrength, the restless energy, and,
may I not say, unceasing life at this wonderful
republic. The stanH of the white blossoms
which grow lu uch luxuriance and perfection
on lis bunks is found alike in the woven fabric
of the unb.es.cbed rags of poverty and tbe pol
ished sannejitspfwed'hy royalty while the
"raw material" Is an acknowledged regulator
of value- from the plantation where grown to
tbe great centers of trade and makes tbe
pockot nerve tremble as well on Ihedocksof
Liverpool as on the bourse ol Paris. Willi
this breath of territory, this adaptability of
soi and climate, and such physical resources,
will not these Vnilcd Stales cmtlnue to ad

spected at horns and abroad, looking to Its
moral as well as Its physical devo opments,
when and where will lt progress be stayed?

MAYOR LOAGUE'S SPEECH.
Mayor Loague, on rising to respond to the
toast or "Ireland and tbe Irish, People at
Pomo and Abroad," was warmly received,
lie spoke as follows:
Mb. Pkemidest and Gentlemen I sin
cerely thank you lor the cordial manner in
whlcn you have received this toa t to my na
tive land, ami its people at homo and abroad,
i o be remembered, as we always are, on fes
tive occasions is a cause for pleasant recollec
tions, and you will, I trust, pardon me for say
ing that no other country with Its extent of
tenltory or populutio-i Is so universally
aud kindly remembered on all occasions as
tue land U Patrick. Bridge', Columbkille
and O'Counell. I Applause. To you, gentle
men, many ol whom aunually visit Irelacd
for pleasure and health, or to see Blarney cas
tle laughter, It is not necessary to tell you of
tho many beautiful rivers and lakes In Ire
land, nor of her historic el'les and towns,
noted for centuries as the tcU ot learning,
sciences and art. he Irish at home, and, by
the way, they are never anywhere else, are
Industrious and loyal to the government. Her
majesty has none within her renlrus, tbougb
se'dom honored, more fait ful to their trust;
but all other countries cheerfully welcome
tho Irish to citizenship, which goes far to
make amends fnr the neglect and oppression
they tuner In their native land, tor which
Ireland has generously furnished her quota
of soldiers to assb t in maintaining tho univer
sal ireedom which Is denied her sons
al home. Tho people In Ireland,
Mr. President, do not, I believe,
desire eeparatlon from England andFcotland.
but they do claim home rule with a legisla
ture In Dubllu.autl that should be granted to
ihem; this is right, tbousb It will not be con
cecded through homo politicians in parlia
ment nor by tho lnterfeicnce of Irishmen
who have cast their lot in ether parts of tho
world, lo acquire this, let the masses of the
people ballrsi educated In tbe public schools
or tl.at country, aud then, aud not till then,
may they look lorward with confidence to the
day when Ireland will be
"Great, plot Ions and free.
First flowar ol tho earth.
And first gem of tho sea."
MR. RHETT'S SPEECH.
Mr. T. M.S. Hhett, responding to the toast ol
"Tha Ladles," haid:
MB. PaESIbtNT AND GENTLEMIN My
paluful duty it Is to respond lo tbo ever wel
come toast of "1 lie Ladle-s." I will not say
much on this theme, lor they, if you keep
silent but for a moment, will talk for them
selves, and plead lor us, too, In voices so soft
aud sweet mat mlue will lonnd harsh beside
tbem. It has been said that "you cannot
paint the Illy nor gild the refined gold;" but,
alas, for the genius of onrspx it Is whispered
that .some or our fair friends do paint the lily;
therefore aro they wiser than ono of the
w.sest. But, fair as Is my text, I must, like
many a poor sinner, wunder lrom tho bright
gardens, where bloom the loveliest flowers
and sweetest fruits do grow. Hero I prote&t
against the ,-idihikI cm-toni that calls upon a
meek and lowly-minded bachelor to speak lu
raise of those wheso gentle caresses are denied
im. Tills painful duty oi slnslng thesongof
another's triumph should be the lot of some
bfteilct. Orten have 1 wondered why a gen '
t'o bachelor shpald be assigned this task. Of
tbe three-fold mlnhtry cf womau he knows
but one, for Is H not aptly said, and would
that my voice were mellowed Into music, "to
infancy she Is us milk, to the strong man ss
wloe, and lo old age grnel7" Why bhould not
some married man, who knows all tboso
things, perhaps more, celobrato in llttlng
hlralnall these virtues? Is It becauso there
Is not one man among them who dare, as
wo bachelors do, explain his long Jibsence
from home, bv savin r: "1 was prnlslncr th
ladles In a Bpeech " I think malice prompt!
you to make a timid bachelor, ono of the
noble aimyof martyr?, speak at a meeting
such as this: It is the same spirit, and it fets
my soul on tire to think of it, that ao. mated
the old law of theancleut city which com
pelled on a certain festlvul St. Andrew's,
doubtless -ail the bachelors to parade the
streets lu a body, slt.glng ludicrous songs, and
con esing tlie Justice of this punishment.
You do not indeed do this, but with sly and
foxy look, pretend to despise the honest Dach
el or, and tiling to bear on manly Independ
ence tbe lorce of public opinion tlie publlo
opinion you so worlhlly represeut. If this be
your motive, aud these your thoughts, the
Lord have mercy on your sou's. In
stead, then, of coming here with mirth
and Jollity, you sbouid approach with
bared head aud bated breath for ere the
leaves of the iorest next grow sere, many a
tall fellow will have deserted us, his comratios
In woe, and have lilted the white flag of sur
render In the very center of your camp, will
have passed beyond or into tho weeping and
tbe wailing, and have become, mournfully do
I say 11, even such as you. Then, too, will he
forget, or unbluslilngly deny, that "the fore
head of the bachelor Is more honorable than
tbe bare brow of the married man." For our
part, we bachelor , who continually do cry,
we say In words of solemn warning, "The; e Is
a time for all things." But nowhere Is it bald
tbere is a time for Joking. This is no Jest. If
you do not cease to oiler up from our little
band of bachelors this, you r yearly sacrlflc al
iamb, and the bonnle lasses do not relent, we
lads will die.

characterizes him in all of his efforts to add
to tho elegance of any entertainment where
maslc. of the highest order. Is to bo gracefully
commingled with olher features of tbe oc
casion. In addition lo his lnstruntental ac
companiments, he also favored the assemblage
with songs, executed lu his own easy, smooth
and fascinating style. Mr Currie and Prof.
Fcterseu, In the soags procedlng each toast,
were all that could be desired, and have agala
ollelted the good opinion and ftvorable com
ment of those of our citizens wbo ap
preciate truo vocallsm. Prot. Arnold, the
accomplished and very deserving mu
sician, whoso name Is always tho
synonym of artistic merit, enthused
every one ty his admirable execution oa the
cornet, to the use of which he is as much en
titled asa king to his sceptre. Mr. 'lomlln
son's flute solo was a brilliant aud a very ac
ceptable feature, adding most appropriately
to the enjoyment of the evening. Mr. H. F.
Glbcon's violin solo was remarkable for its
precision and expression, and elicited tbe
praise of every one who heard tbo sweet
strains that he so charmingly evoked. In
fact, the music was all good, aud we could s?y
three times as much more in praise did tlmo
and space permit at this lato writing. Each
aud all ot the gentlemen deserve and have the
thanks of the society and Iheirguests.
After tbe above toasts volunteer toasts were
In order and responded to by several gentle
men. The entertainment whs continued uutll
long utter midnight and wound up with a
parting song appropriate to tbe occ.slon, an
occasion whlcn will long be remembered by
the happy participants.

London Timea's Paris Correspondence.
There was a long interview ten dajB
nj;o tetween Ex-Presidents Thiers and
Castelar, and the Oologue Gazette gives
tbe Eubstance of what was then said by
the latter. From this it would appear
that Senor Castelar believes the dema
gogues will drive aay Alfonso, and
will in their turn be superseded by a
conservative republic. He wishes to see
a seven years' president, with a terrify
ing countenance and a long stick, in or
der to ext rpate tho cancerj of Spain,
domagogism and CarlUm, together wi$h
a numerous and wellrdlseiplined army,
freed from the favoritism which has so
often proved fatal. He desires only
three refirms-the abolition of Cuban
slavery, universal conscription without
substitutes, and seventy-five million
fiauca a year from the local and central
treasuries for schools. TTe is resolved to
shun all intercourse with the irreconcil
ablea, to use all lawful means to bring
his party into powr, and to wait for
events, especially the dissolution, to
which the conservative paity must
bring the monarchy in a land which 1ms
lost all regard for it For his own part,
he disclaims all personal ambition, and
will come to no resolution till he has
scrutinized the situation tnoie cleany.
In ptlltics he hates only two things, ui
tramomnnhru and monarchy, and lie
loves freedom end the republic, but
above all hia country.
