Sunday Morning, March li, 1886.
The Fenian DIorement.
The excitement in Fenian circles,
social and political, in New York, ns
well us throughout the country, the
Herald states is steadily on the in?
crease. New circles were forming,
and the rival factions were healing
tho old wounds of former strife, and
were coming together under the emer?
gency of Ireland's difficulty. Pecu?
niary aid was forthcoming, and $50,
000 were subscribed in New York
on the 3d, to the loau of the Irish
Republic. Preparations were making
for the grand demonstration at Jones'
Wood, on the 4th; but Archbishop
McCloskey vetoed the proceedings.
From the West we learn that a Fenian
naval squadron is fitting out at Chi?
cago, and the green flag has already
been given to the breeze on the
waters of Lake Michigan. From
circles and leaders, from all factions
and sides the Fenian war-cry is sound?
ing. Everywhere throughout the
country, and from the principal cities
in all sections, we have accounts of
monster meetings, marked by great
enthusiasm and a strong determina?
tion to assist in the liberation of the
The European mails by the steam?
ship Asia put us in possession of the
latest developments of the movement
on the other side of the Atlantic up
to the evening of the day on which
the suspension of the habeas corpus
act was carried into effect. The pro?
ceedings in the British Parliament
were rendered notable by the confes?
sions of shame and humiliation, for
mis-government of Ireland, with
which men like Bright and Stuart
Mill accompanied their tacit consent
to the measure. The London press
speak of the situation in most alarm?
ing tones. Fears are expressed that
the Irish army, militia and police are
alike tainted with Fenianism, and the
London Post announces that the Go?
vernment intend to follow up the sus?
pension of the habeas corpus by a bill I
authorizing the seizure of all the
Irish telegraph lines.
The New York Post and the Express
have the following commenta on the
uprising of the Fenian forces:
For two evenings past, the various
circles in New York have held meet?
ings all over the city, and the cry
everywhere is "To arms!" The gene?
ral feeling seems to be that the arbi?
trary measures in Ireland will pro?
voke an immediate rising of the
people, and brin/r on the dreaded
conflict before the brotherhood in
America can lend a hand. The O'Ma
hony leaders are actively at work,
and it is claimed that a warlike de?
monstration will, in ?ome way, soon
be made against Great Britain. Pre?
sident Koberts and the Senate party
are also at work, and it is said that
arms and equipments for a goodly
military corps ure ready when the
time arrives to use them. Material
aid is flowing in to both parties and
from all quarters. The Father Mat?
thew and other temperance organiza?
tions are contributing to the Fenian
coffers, and Irish associations are
being formed. Neither are the ladies
idle. They are collecting moneys and
garments, and such articles as expe?
rience has taught may be necessary
in a time of conflict. An Irish lady
yesterday gave $700 towards the
eui so, and hundreds have purchased
few nights ago, the John Mitch?
ell Circle, . Brooklyn, subscribed
$1,470 to the cause, and the members
have pledged themselves to increase
Another great meeting will be held
at Cooper Institute, on the 9th in?
stant, under the auspices of the J. J.
Bogers Circle of the Fenians. In re?
ply to an invitation to attend this
meeting, George Francis Train has
written a letter of acceptance, in
which he favors the fitting out of
Alabamas in this country to aid Ire?
land. He says he will be at the
meeting to cheer for Irish nation?
It is estimated at the headquarters
to-day, after an examination of the
retutus of the various circles, that
1,000,000 men will be ready to move
from the United States to aid in the
liberation of Ireland at any time the
orders to march may be issued from
the war depavitnent of the organiza?
tion. Last night, many of the circles
of this city met at their respective
headquarters, and received a large
number of now members. Several
thousand hav? joined since Thurs?
At ll o'clock, a new and beautiful
flag was raised over the O'Mahony
Headquarters, in Union Square. Its
material is of fine green silk. The
Irish arms, the harp and wolf dog,
occupy a space in the centre of thir?
teen feet. When the ensign was
hoisted to the breeze, it was honored
by three loud cheers from the spec?
It is stated ou ??ood authority that
negotiations are now in progress in
Washington lu obtain from the
United States Government the recog?
nition of Ireland as a belligerent
power, in order to exercise for her
I the same belligerent rights extended
by Great Britain to the late Confede?
ra te Government. It is claimed that '
thc "nullification of all constitutional
law, as embraced in the establishment
of martial law in Ireland, entitles thc
patriotic forces in that country to the
rights of belligerents." It is further
held that the precedent for the appli?
cation was furnished by England
when she recognized the South as a
belligerent before actual war had
commenced. Fenian repr?sentatives
are now in Washington pressing
their claims upon tho x-resident and
the Cabinet, and it is stated that Sir
Frederick Bruce has protested against
any such apjilication being received
in behalf of* the British Government.
The news by the next steamer, it is
believed, will lead the Government
to give a decision on the question.
The meeting at Jones' Wood, on
Sunday, was one of the largest ever
held in this country, and the imme?
diate cause was the suspension of the
writ of habeas corpus in Irelands The
Catholic Archbishop of New York
denounced the meetingT and admo?
nished all good Catholics not to at?
tend it. But one hundred and twen
ty-fiv? thousand good Catholic Irish
men did attend the meeting, and then
and there manifested a flaming, ra?
diant, irrepressible enthusiasm, which
filled the oldest and most unimpas.
sioned newspaper reporters with
amazement. We question whether
the Irish, in the days of the great
O'Connell, were ever more wildly ex?
cited than at the meeting on Sunday
It must, by this time, be very evi.
dent to the most skeptical that there
is a depth of feeling, national enthu?
siasm and iron determination of pur?
pose in this Fenian movement, which
have escaped the notice of the super?
ficial observer. There is an amount
of vitality about this famous Irish
organization which has utterly con?
founded and amazed everybody. In
Ireland, as the vigilantjand merciless
severity of the Government increases,
the order . assumes proportion and
strength which thoroughly alarms the

we counsel moderation-that mode?
ration which has heretofore charac?
terized thc doings of .the brotherhood.

The Charleston News, of yesterday,
We are pleased to notice the arrival
of His Excellency Governor Orr, and
are gratified at the further exhibition
of zeal for the public interest implied
by the return of His Excellency so
soon to the theatre of his recent
labors. It has been little more than
three weeks since he left us, within
which time he has visited the most
remote sections of the State.
It may be said of Governor Orr,
that his public course has been emi?
nently judicious, conscious, and per?
haps painfully conscious, that we are
not ?Mi juris upon the question of
our fortunes, but are dependent upon
a current of events we are utterly un?
able to control. He has been at no
pains to assert himself or his office,
but discreetly silent, except upon
matters which came in the routine of
business officially before him, and he
has been able to preserve his self
respect while establishing the highest
claim to the respect of authorities
with whom he had occasion to hold

The Spring Fashion*.
March 1st was "opening day" in
lilie metropolitan cities of the North, j

of the latest production of Dame Fa?

glowing accounts of the spring fa?
shions, and for the benefit of our
lady readers we prevent toe following

Of the various articles of feminine
attire, the bonnet is certainly the
"head centre" of attraction among
the fair sex. It is also an article that
is manipulated by the fickle dame
more than any other. Sometimes it is
all crown-perhaps all curtain. An?
other season, it has no crown at all
and scarcely any front. Tnis season,
the bonnets are of a very light and
coquettish description. The "Em?
pire," at present worn, is to be suc?
ceeded by the "Panela," and a long
category of others, entitled the ' 'Gip
sey," "Aurora," &c. The "Pamela"
is a very pretty bonnet; one noticed
was composed of white crape, trim?
med with violet ribbons, and jet and
straw ornaments. The crown was
loose, the curtain formed with a nar?
row border of lace, and the front de?
pressed a la Maria Stuart. Another
was composed of white lace, trimmed
with orange colored ribbons and white
satin jessamine flo weis, covered with
wax. A hat called the "Margaret" is
to supersede the "Oxford" hat now
worn; it is similar in shape, but
larger, made of straw or Leghorn,
and trimmed with velret and cameos.
At Madame Demorcst's Emporium
of Fashion, on Broadway, some very
elegant designs for spring were on
exhibition, as was also the case in
many other of the principal stores.
The changes are, perhaps, not of a
very radical nature. Dresses for the
season are nearly all gored, and the
skirts cut very short, so as to display
the border of the petticoat; or else
the dress should be boped up with
the patent dress elevators. Among
the prettiest of the new styles is the
"Madeline" gored dress. This dress
is cut without plaits at the waist, and
the skirt and body is all in one piece.
It is made in buff goat's hair cloth,
so pale in tint that it is little more
than cream color, trimmed with blue
velvet of the bright Mexican tint.
The peculiar feature of this dress
consists of the side pieces at the back,
which are continued down upon the
skirt-forming coat tails rather than
sashes, fifteen inches in width at the
bottom, with stimulated pockets. The
tails or shafts are repeated in front,
but are much shorter, and not so
wide at the bottom. The velvet is :
simply put on as a narrow border to
all the edges, and round the bottom
of the skirt. The pockets and front
of the dress are ornamented with blue
velvet buttons to match. A very
pretty sleeve, called the "Coulte," is
exhibited, composed of goat's hair,
or other spring material. It is shaped
to the wrist, but made full upon the
back, giving the effect of an inserted
Balmoral skirts will be little worn,
except in dirty weather; in fine j
weather cambric skirts, trimmed with

hair, striped with black and white.

trimmed with hair or egg fringe, will
be worn, either for tho street or j

las been the political excitement,
hat the animosities attending it have

THADDEUS STEVENS' ANTECEDENTS.
The notorious Thaddeus Stevens
commenced his political life in 1836,
in the Legislature of Pennsylvania,
as an anti-Mason demagogue. Iiis
hobby was then anti-Masonry, as it
now is the negro. His first public
act was the establishment of an in?
quisition to spy out the secrets of
Masonry. It is thus alluded to by
the Pittsburg Post, which says :
"The object of this inquisition was
to extort from men connected with
the institution of Masonry an exposi?
tion of their principles, including the
secrets of the Order, which, it is al?
leged, they had sworn to preserve
inviolate. To this end, many of the
most prominent, statesmen of thc
Commonwealth were dragged before
this 'Star Chamber,' and held in du?
rance vile for weeks, and compelled
to submit to every indignity that
malice Could invent. Had they been
the veriest criminals, they could not
have been subjected to greater igno?
"Among those who were thus out?
raged, may be mentioned the lament?
ed Governors Wolf and Shunk, and
the Hon. George M. Dallas; nor did
even the sacred desk escape the per?
secution of this fanatical anti-Mason.
The Rev. Mr. Sprolis, an eminent
divine ol' the Presbyterian Church,
was dragged by an officer of the
House before the 'modern Jugger?
naut,' as he appropriately styled the
committee, and put under the tor?
ture, with a view of compelling him
to divulge, under oath, what he knew
about this ancient and l-espectable
institution. But he, following the
example of the distinguished states?
men we have named, spurned the
miserable tyrant who would thus
have him violate his honor. These
men were only released from duress
by the united votes of the Demo?
cratic members, with a few of the op?
"We next find this mau, Thaddeus
Stevens, in 1838, at the head of a
wicked conspiracy to overthrow eivil
government in our peaceful old Com?
monwealth, by ignoring the clearly
expressed will of the people at the
i ballot-box, and but for the indomita?
ble courage, of the Democratic mem?
bers of the Legislature, the hellish
plot would have succeeded, and the
'election treated as though it had
never been held.' "
APPEARANCE OF A DEMON.-Many
of the citizens of Bracken County,
Kentucky, have made affidavit that
they were visited by an unearthly
demon. One of the affidavits de?
scribes the monster thus:
"Standing to the right of the upper
cabin, near thc fence that separates
tho negroes' garden from the house
yard, was a creature of gigantic sta?
ture and the most horrifying appear?
ance. It was nearly as high as the
comb of the cabin, and hud a mon?
strous head, not dissimilar in shape
to that of an ape; two short, very
white horns appeared above each eye ;
its arms were long, covered with
shaggy hair of au ashy hue, and ter?
minated with huge paws, not unlike j
those of a cat, and armed wi*h long
and hooked claws. Tts breast was as
large as that of a large sized ox. Its
legs resembled the front legs of a
horse, only the hoofs were cloven. It
had a long tail, armed with a dart
shaped hom, which it was continually
switching about. Its eyes glowed
like two living coals of fire, while
from its nostrils were emitted sheets
of bluish colored flame, with a hiss?
ing sound, like the hissing of a ser?
pent, only a thousand fold lou der. Its
general color, save its arms, was a
duli, dingy brown."
The Louisville Journal having pub?
lished a paragraph stating that "Mr.
and Mrs. Brewer, of Kentucky, have
twenty-two children," a correspon?
dent writes: "The remembrance of
the above paragraph, in your paper
some time ago, induces meto tell you
of an old man, whom we see coming
to Knoxville about once a week. We
call him Grandpa Davis. He is up?
ward of ninety years old. His wife
has given birth to twenty-nine chil-1
dren, twenty-eight of whom are still j
living. They furnished the Union j
army in the late war with twenty-five i
recruits. Is there another man who
deserves the appellation of "loyal"
to a greater extent than Grandpa Da?
vis ? Does he not deserve a pension
at the hands of a Government to
which he has contributed so largely
to save ?
WHAT WHISKEY DID.-At the office \
of the township trustee, the other
day, we saw an old man, seventy-seven
years of age, and the father of twenty
seven children, who is a county pauper.
This old man, some years ago. was a
popular preacher of the Baptist !
Church, loved and respected for his
piety and goodness of heart, and hon- i
ored for his intellectual strength. A ,
word of two syllables contains the se- j
cret of his downfall. He loved whis- j
key-drank it -and now, in his old j
age, is a miserable object of county ?
charity, tottering on the brink of al
pauper's grave. There is a sermon j
and a warning in every white hair !
on this poor old man's head, which j

rough fares* of t ii cir throats for a con- .

In a conversation yesterday, with a 1
leading member of tho Pennsylvania
Congressional delegation, Secretary
Seward brought up the questiou of
reconstruction, and was very severe
upon Congress for their refusal to
admit the Southern delegations. The
member thought that after four years
of a rebellion that had taken millions
of armed men to suppress, and en?
tailed upon us a debt of $3,0nO,000,
000, it was the duty of Congress to
patiently examine into the question
of whether the same men were in a
fit condition to be again entrusted
with the political power of this Go?
vernment; that no rebel should ever
have a seat in Congress with his con?
sent; that the policy of the Prosident
was lamentable, as it would prove a
positive injury to the South.
Mr. Seward replied, with a great
deal of warmth, that the policy was
that which Mr. Lincoln had adopted,
and was carrying it out whon he died,
and that Mr. Johnson was merely
continuing it; that the people of all
parties would sustain it, and there
was not a rebel to-day in the whole
country, and he should not use the
word. Mr. Seward is in favor of the
admission of the entire body of
Southern members, just as they are,
and of the repeal of the test oath.

circumstances of the capture. It had
been uniformly held that a vessel, as

streams of light shot up in columnar form,

of the number of columns or streams of

refused to perform their office. He
grasped a bough of an overhanging
tree, unable to advance further, and
soon the fast congealing water ce?
mented close about him a tomb of
