Verily Donnybro.ju fair is, to all intent;

modem wretched assemblage of hungry
looking cattle, dogs-meat horses, measly

obliged to content themselves with staring
at the exterior of Ihe Show-booths, for want
of the means to visit the interior, no more
resembles the Donnybrook of the past,
than a troop of the old "hulkios," armed
with their Arcadian crooks, and helmeted
with their old woollen night caps, resem

Ihal Dick should sustain the character of a

the punishment that the remainder ol tho
party would intlict upon any prestimptous

modest fair one.
At the end of the double range of tents
called "Dame street," was one called "tho
Larkers ;" and as this was uniformly crowd
ed by citizens of Dublin, it was scarcely
possible lor any one, residing but for a
month in town, not to be recognised by
some present, who immediately passed the
name ol the new-comer round, and be was
surprised (if a raw one) to hear himself ad
dressed by name by persons whom he nev
er saw in bis life before.
It was al the entrance of this tent that a
rnunlrvman stood attired in the usual (r'ae

At tho v,vll known war-ciy of tho lIu-
der.ts, several changed sihs; those who
had ju..t been defending the doctors no'.v
turned upon them, whilst many of their
assailants ranged luomselves oil their
side. The citizens, tiiinkiiiir that the num
ber of students must bo small, rushed to the
spot, to pay 01T sundry old scores; but one
would imagine Ihal Ihe cry of "trimly!
Tiinilyl" which resounded on all sides,
was a sort of spell, or incantation, that rais
ed spirits from the earth, so many voices
responded to the call.
The unfortunate doctor.5!, who had just
expected nothing short of utter annihila
tion, fell their spirits rise at the prospect of
aid and rescue, ami bellowed with might
and main, "Trinity! Trinity!" nnd in a
few minutes they were the nucleus of a
fight in which Iho w hole fair bad joined.
"The poliss! the poliss hero come the
bloody polios" was now tho cry ; and the
horse police dashed into tho mob with their
cu.tomary ardor, ihtir spurs fastened in
ll' ir horses' Hanks causing lliem to plunge,
and bile, and kick most furiously, and lay
ing about them with their swords, cutting
al every thing and every one w ithin their
reach ; luckily they did not know the
sword exercise, and, therefore, when they
struck wilh the edge, it was only by acci
dent. In a jilTy, the reverend senior?,
caught in Iho very act of shouting "Trini
ty !" were handcuff d, as was also Ihe Eng
lishman, w ho got a blow of a sabre from a
policeman that neaily took off his ear, for
attempting lo expostulate ; Paddy, who
submitted quietly ; and Poddy, after a se
vere tils 1 , in which she reefed one po
liceman's fic", and nearly bit the thumb
oil another. I hey were all put together
into a jingle, and conducted by a mounted
escort to Dublin; the police hurrying them
for lear ofa rescue, by keeping continually
whaling the driver with the flats of their
swoids, and prodding Iho horso with the
points, which sj enraged tho jarvey, that
v. hen he got near tho corner of Leesom
Sired, Stephen's green, where two or three
hundred of Lis brethren were assembled,
having whipped bif Itosinaulu into a pal
lop, he drove against a brewer's dray, by
which his traces were smashed, his horso
get free, the jingle locked fast, and be,
springing off his perch, shouted out, "down
with the bloody poliss!"
In an instant ihe mob rushed upon them.
Paddy and Eiddy, with an alacrity and
agility truly astonishing, sprang from the
lofty vehicle, plunged into the crowd
(where there were plenty of willing hands
to free theui from tho hand cuff) and es
