-"Saint Patrick'? Day.
and. commut?e of my gratification at the honor
they have done me, and convey my warmest j
wishes for the delightful success of their
truly Irish entertainment.
Very respectfully and sincerely your friend.
NEW YORK, March 14, 1872.
W. A. Courtenay. ESQ., Chairman :
DEAR Sm-I beg leave to acknowledge the
receipt o? the very kind invitation of the
Hibernian Society of Charleston, to join in
their celebration of St. Patrick's Day, and I re?
gret that other engagements will prevent my
doing so, otherwise than in the spirit of broth?
erly affection and heany good will, which
should bind together all Irishmen on that day.
distance from the country of our birth, or
separation however great which divides us
from each other; both are made lees on that
day, when the love of country brings each one
of ns, in mind and heart, to the dear homes ot
our youth; and as on Sr. Patrick's Day it Is
quite allowable for an American citizen to
notice Irish politics, I beg to suggest asa
"Success to the Home rule movement in Ire
Jand," which means a "House of fa Hamen t In
Jollege Oreen, Dublin."
Very truly, yours, HENRY L. HOQUET.
The following telegraphic greeting was re?
ceived from the Friendly Sons o? St. Patrick
in New York:

Of impromptu toasts, an infinitude ol healths

In the evening the members, with many in
vi ted guest?, assembled at the hall in Society
street, one door from the corner of King
street, to partake o? the anniversary supper.
A large table in the shape o? a T, with a band
some collation spread'upon It, extended I
through the room. . The president, the Bev. I
C. J. Croghan, occupied the upper end with
many distinguished guestp, among whom I
were the Revs. Dre. Bermingham and Moore,
Messrs. Northrop and Folchl, and Colonel B. I
W. Seymour. The members and guests soon
closed np around the table, and for a while
. busied themselves with the viands spread
before them. The St. Patrick's Band were
stationed at one end of the room, and enliven
ed the least with their patriotic and beautiful I
aim. Aa fiann a? Thu wanta nf tho ,U?p~ - I
. bad been sai i -fled and the clatter of dishes had
gradually subsided, the president rose and J

ty for the past year. Ha said he once more I
. accepted the honor which they bad insisted I
on conferring upon him in electing him their
i president for another year. That, during the
Past one, the society had largely Increased in I
' number, and he touchingly alluded to the de
ceased members, to whose: memory the com
', pany drank a toast In silence. That the year j
t had been Improved in a marked manner, and
they now could point to the. St. Patrick's
Band, for the origin and training of which he
gave due credit to those entitled to it, -These
remarks were received with much applause
and good humor, and the president concluded
by offering the first regular toast of Ihe eve
., The Day we Celebrate-Dear to ns, ever held In I
ibnd remembrance by all ti ne Irishmen. j
y ^ After a short Interlude of music,T^the Bev.
Dr. Moore responded. He said they, were ar
Bembled to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, which
for fourteen centuries had been dear to the
hearts of all Irishmen, and ot which their
' presence proved they understood the mean?
ing as well as their forefathers. It expressed I
' the sentiment of the nationality and religion I
; 'of Ireland. These two acted most powerfully
'"together, and stamped their Impress upon the
actions of every true Irishman. There was
no ' people which bad expressed their
character and religion more widely
than the Irish, because they were national
and religious. It was on this account that they
were subjec ed to persecutions, and this
was why the religious laws Intended for their j
destruction by their tyrants had failed to ac- I
compilan their object. The day should be dear
to them all as a national and religious celebra- j
lion. They now bad all the religious truths I
Ct. Patrick taught. It was because they were I
' Irish and Catholic that they were respected all
over the world. Adverting to Irish history,
the.speaker asked why had the movement ot I
*98 failed ? It was, herald, because.the.Catho-1
Uc power, the mainspring of all great Irish
deeds, had been excluded. It laded be
cause Ireland, if not a Catholic nation,
was no nation at all. The spirit ol the age
was fast advancing the principles o? self-rule I
or home government, and the Intelligence of
Ireland only needed a master-mind to lead to
the establishment or a great Irish nation. To ac?
complish this they must fortify the great prin?
ciple ol Irish nationality. With this the Irish
had lived on until now under the heaviest
persecutions. The speaker concluded amid a
storm of applause and encouragement, which
showed what an impression his living words
had made upon his sympathetic audience.
The president next gave:
Ireland-Tue gem of the ocean, the genins or
thy 6ons shines forth as bright as Jewels In all
quarters 01 the earth.
Mr. Robt. F. Touhey responded, and ex- j
pressed his regrets that Mr. O'Connor bad
been prevented from being present lo speak
to this toast to which he could not hope to do
Justice. The speaker lo glowing words de- j
scribed Ireland as the oppressed, then as the
seat ot learning, and finally be spoke of the
glorious sons to whom she had given birtb.
His fruitful theme was well controlled, andi
his highly-colored pictures provoked frequent
The next regular toast was: j
S TU th Carolina-The home of onr adoption; we
.cling to her in her adversliy, with the fond hope,
ere many days that she wu! be restored to ber I
.former hpleudor. |
To this Colonel B W-. Seymour responded. I
He said be WBB rejoiced to hear the senti
meD ts which fell from the preceding speakers.
They atru&k deep within him and warmed up
bis b!oo J. H? felt an admiration and a grail- j
tu?e to the Irish. Io every straggle and
wherever blood was .split the Irish were to bo
found, and .they had fought and bled like
heroes for thia land of their adoption. They
now formed a powerful element In this coun?
try, where they could nourish and keep alive
their patriotic sentiments. With these they
would one day returr and free their
mother Ireland. They loved this soil
of their adoption, and had here to fight a
battle not as hard as that of Ireland,but to ena?
ble them to retain constitutional llberty,and to
purge their State government ot the corrup?
tion engendered within it. The tones of the
preceding speakers had warmed his blood, and
he felt as though he were but twenty years o?
age, instead of seventy. He was ready to go
back with them, and, concluded the speaker,
"Whenever John Bull shakes his mane at Ire?
land, may the American Eagle be ready to
pick out his eyes." ' The speaker was contin?
ually interrupted by the applause his remarks
elicited, and the last sentiment brought down
The president here announced that the
following named members, with the band,
were appointed a delegation to visit the Hi?
bernian Society, and show them what the St.
Patrick's were up to: Messrs. J. H. Devereux,
J. M. Tenney, John Burke, John Barry and G.
D. Mulvaney. The delegation left, and the
next toast was given :
Pope PiuB IX"-The eucceseor < f st. Celestine,
who commls-loned St. Patrick to plant the cross
and preach the faith In Ireland. Long may he
live, th- pride of our race, ana the ornament of
the Catholic Church.
Besponded to by the Very Bev. Dr. Ber?
mingham, who, having excused his voice by
alleging a bad cold, complained that the other
speakers bad taken up all the blood and fight?
ing, and left him nothing but the man of peace
to speak about. It was a great theme, how?
ever bard to handle. On one of the seven
hills of Berne, the Esquiline, there had dwelt
for centuries in a monastery' a society of
priests. In this monastery were the two
Chains with which St. Peter had been at two
different periods of his life bound, and which
(so says the legend) had become miraculously
linked together. In that monastery, Sr.
Patrick lived, was fed and boarded,
and from this house St. Patrick hud
been dispatched to Ireland by St.
Celestine. Pope Pius was not behind?
hand. He bad not sent St. Patrick, but he
had sent the first cardinal to Ireland, and the
Archbishop of Dublin was tho first cardinal
who bad ever resided In the Emerald lele.
This showed the good will of the Pope to Ire- j
land, for which the Irish were always grate-1
ful. The Pope and the Catholics of Ireland
were as bead and body. Every man, woman
> and child In Ireland was a Papist by principle,
and, in modern times, every Pope was an
Irishman by bis elevation. These remarks were
enthusiastically received, and as the reverend
gentleman Bat down three rousing cheers
were given In his honor.
The next regular toast was:
Oar Sister Societies-Designed tor noble ob?
jects, we greet the repr?sentatives with pride.
? The Bev. C. B. Northrop responded, and
said lt was hardly appropriate for bim td do
so, as he belonged to no ot her' socle ly bu t the St
Patrick's Benevolent. He was glad ot the op?
portunity, however, to express his feelings of |
gratitude to the Irish people for being a Cath?
olic and a priest, which he prized bigber than
anything else in this world. He alluded to
the Irishmen, such as Mitchel, who fell at j
Fort Sumter, Commodore McDonough, of rev?
olutionary fame, and Charles Carroll, -who
signed the Declaration of Independence, and
said a country which could produce suoh men
had a bright future In store for lt, when It
would one day become Its own ruler. A rous?
ing cheer and a health to Father Northrop sa?
luted the speaker at Its conclusion.
Tbu-uvAt tuon, 'Hiv ricoo-IUB UCSb CXUar?
dian of Freedom," was responded to briefly
by Mr. F. W. Miller.
"Ireland's Illustrious Martyrs, Living and
Dead," was next given, and responded to by
Mr. Stephen Malony, who expressed bis in?
competence to dojustlce to so great a subject
which would require the eloquence of a Grat?
tan. He reviewed the early history of the
church in Ireland, and alluded to the slaught?
er of the clergy and students by the Danes.
Next to the invasion by Henry VII, and then
to the numberless* martyrs who fell beneath
Elizabeth. The subject was brought up to the
present day, and reviewed with a depth of j
learning which attracted all present.
The hour was now getting late, and the
guests began to disperse, carrying with them
the recollection of a happy and pleasant re?
union, and a c.! citation In every respect j
worthy of ihe Boclety. ?

A desperate fight, occurred at President
Island, a few miles below this : etty, yesterday.
Deputy Sheriff F. Rodegan went there f jr the
purpose of arresting a negro named John

White had barr leaded, bis cabin and would
make a desperate fight -~ Rodegan approached
the cabin and demanded a surrender of White
who relused, saying he would be murdered
by the negroes ii he did. Alter some further
parleying one negro approached the cabin and
.was shot .dead bv White, who ruBhed. ?ut
and secured his gun. In a few minutes he

then opened a sharp fire, wounding four
others. Rodegan seeing that lt was impossi?
ble to dislodge him, sent to the city for assist?
ance. Deputy Sheriff Mike Payne summoned

INVESTIGATIONS AND REFORM.-The Washing-1

Commerce writes: "There are In all ten con?
gressional investigations going on. I feel safe
in prediciing, thus early, thai not one of the
committees will, in Hs report, claim to have
sustained any charge of corruption in office OD
the part ol any official. On the contrary, lt I

prominent senator, who ls on one of the most
important Investigating committees, says there

must be a demand for reform like that which
overthrew the New York ring. It seems im?
possible to reach the root ot evils complained

must be sought elsewhere."
