The land became fired afresh v.'itli the
genlusof liberty. A noble occasion offered
in which to organize and arm a military
force in Ireland v. hen the American Avar
closed and the combined flctfc or Franca
and Spain were liding triumphant in the
Irish Channel. & formidable invasion was
threatened, and at that tune the island
was almost wholly destitute of Coast de
fense. The danger aroused the kingdom,
as her people were told bv the British min
istry that "they must dfenl the-iiselves."
The result was that more than lou.OOO
men 'dmost instantly. sprang intoan..s, uni
formed, well-equipped and officered. Aftet
this event There was a rapid increase of
prosperity in the country. The concessions
had been wrung from the British Cabinet
under ipeat stress and as a conK-quencs
maligna ntenmity soon began to develop the
desire to destroy Irejand's hopeful progress.
A non-Catholic Irish clergyman, Rev. James
Gordon, at t!p tiogimiliig of this century,
wroteof the feeling among Irishmen at tubs
time He said: "A diffusion of liberal
sentiment and a unity of Interests
had contused men of all ranks
and persuasion! in the common raus..
Ti:e unhallowed monster ot religion
bigotry could no longer be introduced :v

London ministry .' Ireland's happy

cluuieers, Mid ot'rr schemes were prac
tleert to dissipate the prevailing united
sentiment of the Irish people. British
biibery and corruption were mediums,
and its Parliament, in 178-1, uncruiM
Iously annihilated Irish legislative in
dependence and impoivd new restrictions
on tile trade and commerce of Ireland.
Tli-jse treacherous proceedings excited
general indignation in the land- and its
spirited people now turned their minds
to a wider sphere of political liberty.
It must not bo forgotten that the Catholics
were slill under the ban or the penal laws
of Biitalu, and although they numbered
two-thirds of the population of the nation,
were divested of political lights. Again,
to quote Rev. Mr. Gordon, who said:
"For the removal of thesu odious re
strictions and disqualifications, by which
the Roman Catholics were deprived of
what was accounted their due share of
political power, vigorous erfoits wore
rr.ode and various engines put In motion.'

The United Irishmen Clubs throughout

a military fore.? was in contemplation to

looked oil vItli lilted breath. The cut of
a die would detcimiue whether the watch
word was to be "Bevolntiou" or "Treason."
But tht British government sprang up and
the lord lieutenant at Dublin issued n
peremptory proclamation, on December ri,
Interdicting ''all seditious nst-emblfcs" and
commanding the- magistrates to suppriis
them by military force. The National
Guard deferred Hip proposed muster, but
theleailoreof the patriots issued, on Decem
ber 14, a counter manifesto, exhorting the
volunteers "'to resume their arms :or the
maintenance of tranquillity throughout the
kingdom or Ir-Itud against foreign and
internal enemies, and advising the Protesr
ant to choose deputies for provincial as
semblies, preparatory to a general conveu

To oppose all this tendency to justice

Ireland proceeded to array an army or th-jir
own. and they urganiztd societies, then
and ulr-rwnrdt-3 be known as he Orange

of the British government, and who
openly avowed their purpose "to shed
the last drop vr their blood before any
conce.'sions should be made to the Cath
olics" or their advocates. it was even
represented that they had Altered intoa
solemn league and covenant to destroy
the Catholics and had nwor;i to v.ade up
bi their knees in Popish blood.''

their native land as intensely as any peo

party were "nder M:ch honible influences

never be at rest "until te Roman Cath

Thousjuds of the unarmed Catholic peas

constantly pictured to themselves their
general massacre on some given day or
night. Added cruelty and oppression drove
tliem into secret bands throughout the
country a a incasureof self-defense These
must have been something like the Minute

the war for national independence. The
Irish Toi government resisted all Catholic

that their measures brought the uffairs of
Ireland tc a speedy crisis and to that

desolated her In the greatest ruin. Lord

Ireland's home rule and the manacling of
that nation to Britain throusrh the act of

Devoted patriot Irishmen like Lord
Edward Fitzgerald", who bad been an offi
cer in the army, and was a member t
the Irish Parliament; "Wolfe Tone, who
subsequently held a- commission as lie l
tenant general in the French army;
Roger O'Connor, John and Henry
Shears, Gen. Ungual LJarvej;, Dr. "W. j".
McN'evln, Oliver Bond, Thomas Addis
Emmet, Arthur O'Connor, J. E. Dcvereux,
Simon BuUci. Edward Byrne and many
other able and popular Irish leaders saw
dearly thronghtl.eintentionsof theBritish
cabinet which had a strong forceof allies
In the Irish Parliament. Troops were be
infj poured -into' the country, and the
Orange yeomen were at their (ruel work
of persecution. The Directory of theUnitcd
Irishmen, established at Dublin, issued
addressee. Ono said: "Be firm, Irishmen,
but be cool ami cautious; be patient yet
a while. v Ay;nh and again we Warn
you against doing the .work of your ty
rants, by premature, by partial or divided
exertion." In the meantime tt.e floating
corps of Royalist troopers and infantry sys
tematically fleeced and pillaged from th-2
people. Everything was made a pretext
for plunder. A Protestant eyewitness of
many of these depredations published a
work in 1S0J3. Spcaklu;; of theconserva-
liyisni ofttoeCatuoliclrisli, hesays: "They
stiugglrd under a Charles the First, and
were plundered: they struggled for roy
alty against the English rebellion, and
they were plundered, they fought for Jnnies
II (but vl ore memory now goes by an un
clean epithet), and were plundered," and
all these robberies were legalised in Eng
land's Pnrliauici'taud by monarchy's edicts.
But while there was marauding by the
enemy the patriots begin to take action.
Sometlm in March, 1703, 800 men, m mut
ed, entered the town of Calvin, county
Tipperary, and held It during the day un
til they collected all the arms nnd ammuni
tion. Other Insurgent forces In the coun
try retaliated on the "yeos."
All 1 1 eland was put under martial law
wltli free quarteis for the militiry In all
paits or the kingdom- The Tory Soldl-irs
became mi'Steis of every household entered
and the owners were compelled to supply
their every demand which Eavi.gc (lis
positions prompted. Shocking scenes were
exhibited. The "Looty and beauty" mer
cenaries that met such a suitable fate sub
sequently at New Orleans were in evidence
and perpetrated horrid acts not recordable
in a public pilnt. People were scourged,
bomeplticed on pickets, houses were burned
and furniture taken into streets and made
into fuel to warm the sentinels. Vast
quantities, of piovisions an J ern were Con
sumed by fire, resulting in sub5cquent
famine for tens of thousands of the 'oiuinou
people. Men ueic Imprisoned on the slight

for the -vengene? of the red coat. At the
guaidhouse the short-hnlied person had a
cap besmeared with hot pitch piesseddown
on his head and was turned out amid the
jeers of the toiiurers. Sometimes the -sight
of the victim was destroyed by the melted
pitch getting into the eyes, and these
atrocities were gloated over by yells that
might )ia,ve issajd from a baud of Comanche
Indiaus. No officer or magistrate ever in
teifered in these atiocitics. People's eara
were mutilated or cut off altogether and
silts made in the nosea of suppoicd rebels
The government instructed ail magistrates
end offlceis to Keep the fames of informers
profoundly secret, and thus afforded scope
for every form of eruelty tj gratify personal
In March, '98, Lord Edward Fitzgerald
was seized in the house of Nichv.las Mur
phy, in Uur.lin. He made desperate resist
aneev. itha ('.aer- He wounded Magis
trate Swan, Ma (or Sirr, Ca tit. Ryan and two
of hiss ,'diers, the la tter three dying o f their

took place at Tallagh, Lucan. Tuk, I'nii

In all these actions the United Irish v.ere

At Dtmlsoyne, elfiht miles from Dublin, the
regiment of Ueny Fencibi.s escorted rhe

seized by the Irish, and a similar fate befill

At a subsequent attaokon Pro-perous the

barracks were fired, and the Cork mibtia.
an Orange organization, with its comman

ot a Welch avalry regiment were killed.
AtNaas the British were to i many, and the
Irish were repulsed- Several officers and
men of the former were slain; 200 of the
latter were slab: in the streets, and in the
cavalry pursuit of thpui a greater number
were slaughtered in the roads and fields.
At Kilcullen, the inefficiency of the British
cavalry against the embattled Irisn plk2
men was cleurly shown- "War now began to
rape thi-rugb the blighted land. The brave
Irishmen, whose firearms had bepn seized
by the enemy at previous times, had to
rely chiefly en the pike. The patriots were
repulsed at Carlon- Nirmlvrs took refuge m
