EMMET, THE PATRIOT.
AXTAL SUPPER OF KNHiHTS OF
THE RED BRAXni.
Eloquent Tributes to the Memory of
the Hero The Speech or
The Koiahla of the Red Branch
we.e resplendent in tueir new can
last night, the lCSth anniversary of
the birth of the Irish patriot, Robert
Emmet. Their hail on Madison street,
which wai cramped and incocveuient,
was abandoned in August lat, and
their new quarters in the Lee block,
one of the handsomest in the city,
are all that could be desired. At the
left band, at the head of the stairway,
door opens into a parlor, wnicn nas
been tastefully furnished by the
knights. The banqueting room ex
tends the entire length ol the build
ing. Well ventilated, with high ceil
ings, a broad polished lloar, it is ad
mirably suited for the entertainments
which none know better bow to give
than the patriotic Knights ol the Red
Branch. Ihe building was rmilmnuy
lighted last evening, and at S o'clock
the stair : ay was blocked by
stream ol ladies and gen
tlemen, who were received by
committee upon tueir entrance into
the hall. In the banqueting ball two
fables txt uded on eituer side, the full
length of the apartment, and one acroes
the end near the door. The tables
were earmshed with fruits and flow
ers, arranged with exquisiu taste, and
tempting viands loaded the ieetai count.
Plates weie set for nearly, or quite, 400
guests, and there were but few vacant
chairs. The occasion wa more enjoy
able on account of the preeenue of 100
or more ladies, who graced the occa
sion with their presence. A nnmber
doi traits of the sons of Ireland
hanging upon the walls were hung in
mourning, among others tho3e of Pat
rick O'Donnell, the "Avenger," and
Parnell. A superb double engraving
f Robert K nmet depended from the
ceiling over the center of thp tab'ee,
and was draped in nbbona cl green,
white and yellow.
Over one tloar appeared the legend,
"In Unity There is Strength," and
over another, "Caed Mille Failthe,"
which tranMated means "A Thousand
Welcomes," a mild form for the gen
erous hospitality witu wnicn tne
kniehts received tbur gueeti. The
silver tongue of the oratir and wit
vied with the melodious notes of tone-
ster and song3tiets, the company hon
oring Ireland and hor patrons with
speech and song. The order of exer
cises was as follows:

The feature cf the evening was, of
course, the address of that gifted young
Memphian, Mr. James rbelau, on
tfr. Phelna oa Boberl Kmiiut.
Mr. Phelan spoke substantially as
Ladies and Gkntlkmkn lonigtit
we are assembled not merely to do
honor to him whose name is on the
lips of Irishmen and the children of
liidhmen in all quarters of the globe,
but also to keep fresh and green the
principles for which he gave his nob'e
yourg life. Under the sun of India,
where strange people worship strange
gods, among the wild races cf Africa,
in Australia, in Canada, among the
beautiful islands of the ttopic seas, be
fore the Golden Gate of California,
anywhere and everywhere the exile
children of Ireland may be on this
eventful day their thoughts turn to
the lead from which they sprang with
admiration and devo ion and passion
ate love. The Irish no longer live in
I reland alnne. The oppression which
drove them from their homes has eenr,
her emissaries to the natiens of all tne
world to tell the tale of IriBh wrongs
and ts plead for and win the sympa
thies of til noble nations. America
to-dny is called the greater Ire
land beyond the sea', and we
who are Irish and Irish-AmericaDS
assemble this duy to show
the world that Emmet died not in
vain. It is t) us who are Americans
first and Irishmen second, a peculiary
pleasing thought, that the last hope
that thrilled the htart tf Emmet ere
the final despair had settled upon
him was that ho might escape o
America to begin a new life and win
a new fame. Then, as now, America
was the refuge for the down-trodden
and the oppressed of all people. But
twenty-seven times had the sun in
Heaven made glorions the day on
which America bad declared that the
republican independence was no
louuer a dream cf philosophers or a
tradition of ancient history, when the
spirit of Emmet, leaving the eatth be
low, lit a new star in the firmament of
Irish history, a star which from that
day to the present, Das Deen tne
Bethlehera star cf promise shining in
the east over the birth-place of Irish
independence, and by the grace of
God it never before shone so bright,
so brilliantly as in this year cf onr
Lord, 1386. The fourth oi July and
the fourth cf March, how wide apart
they stand, and yet how each typifies
the history cf the people wbo cele
brate them. On the one hand the
great Jheart lof a people hap
py proud ana prosperous swells
with gratitude to llim who has stnt
the purest and most radiant of all His
angels to dwell among them forever,
the spirit of Liberty. On the other,
like the faithful when the voice of
the mezzuin is heard from the minartt
that crowns the moeque of the caliphs,
a people cease from the active pursuits
of daily life to meet together, to take
new vows, to draw closer the bonds of
nnion and sympathy that knit together
the Irish race to old Ireland herself.
The voice that calls them is that of
Emmet himself. Here Mr. Phelan
gave a historical review of the attempt
of Robert Emmet to capture the castle
at Dublin, and to nse this as the in
cept on of a struggle for the freedom
of Ireland. He called attention to the
fact that Emmet's attempt was the
weakest and the most impracticable of
all the uprisings of that eta. and ex
plained how it was tbat men likeQrat
tan, Flood, Curran, O'Connell, Davis,
Meagher, Mitchell and others were
passed over, and that Emmet bad be
come the national bero. There were
various re.uonc, to be found in the
chaiacter of Emmet himself the fact
tbat be appealed to physical force,
which G rattan and O'Connell re
pudiated, the romantic part of
his career, the circumstances cf
his execution and most of
all to the eloquent speech which
lifts him as an orator above the head
of Kidney Ritsreil or Mirabeaa.
this speech be bad in rne sentence
crystallized Ihe hcnt'.aieut that uiti-es
the struggle l Jr Irish nationality eo
wonderful, so beautiful and so pathe
tic. He compared Emmet to other
national herrxs, nod wound np by
saving that the rpirit of Emmet is
still abroad. The fates in some myster
ious recess are preparing the epitaph
which will torn he written. The
mitts and darknwa are about his
tombstone as in the imagication of
the poet who cave us in inmoriam.
But like that the moon is at oat to
beam thiongh. the clouds.
"His tablet white in dark appears
Aa slowly steals a filter flam
Along the letters of bis rame.
And o'er the numb r of his years.
The Diifons of the earth are begin
ning to harkec t) the sad tale of Irish
wrongs. The troubled air Is heavy
with rumors. Whiperlng sounds are
borne along the breeze. Strange
lights are seen in the heaven. The
time will 05n be here, and the assem
bling of to-night is an tamest that the
millions of people who boast Irish
blood and Irish lineage await no
longer hopelessly the time when the
epitaph which Kobert Emmet desired
shall be written.
The Overton Bereptlon.
The reception given lat night at the
Peabody Hotal by Mr. and Mrs. John
Overton, jr., in honor of their nier e,
Miss Jennie Eaing cf Nashville, was
one of the most brilliant social events
of the eeai on, nnd the entire wcr d of
fashion seemed to tiav turned out to
pay hnmaen to the fair guest of the
evening. The threatening and dis
agret able weather sin med to have no
i fleet in cauaing a dtnnninhod at'end
ance, for by 10 o'clock the
palatial ball raom cf the Pea
body and the spacious corridors
leading to it were thronged with beau
tiful women and gallant looking men.
Tie large and beautiful dining
room and the balls were handsomely
decorated with Ihwers, and at the
north end a platform was occupied by
Arnold's full string band, which, be
fore dancing commenced, discoursed
most elcatient music. Mrs. John
