A Hrientlflc Triumph,
It should be a matter of especial gratitlcatlon to
Americans to feel that our naiivo Institutions are
appreciated abroad. We have a scientiflo triumph
to boast of in tbe success of tbe American
Meteorological system, which tbo English Parlia
ment has attested its appreciation of in recently
receiving tbe report of a committee of that body,
which recommends tbe adoption of our system as
a measure to lie desired. The United States Sig
nal Service Bureau was tho immediate outgrowth
of tbo war, and was organized out of tbo signal
corps and military tolegrapb corps which had op
erated during the war, but were no
longer needed atitscessatiorav Lieutenant Mai ht
is tbe originator of the idea; but Professor Henry,
of tbe Smithsonian Institute, is tbo author of the
meteorological science and systematized land ob
servations on atmospherical occurrences and phe
nomena in this country. Lieutenant Mackt
formed the wind and current charts of the ocean
after cumulated observations in that direction.
Professor Bacbe, of the Coast Survey of tbe
United States and tho War Department, kept au
thentic records at points cn the coast aud at mili
tary posts, contributed tbe tabulated records, and
gave the clue to the system which was afterwards
born aud has for years been so ably and scien
tifically conducted by General Albert J. Mi f.k,
Cbief Signal Otlieer. At tbe close of tho war.
General Myer, who was in command of tbo
United States Signal Corps, suggested that
his corps of signal officers and
army telegraphers should be utilized in tbe great
civil service in which ho is now engaged. Only
disciplined soldiers were employed in the service.
At Alexandria, a few miles from Washington, on
tbo Potomac, a school was established, where en
listed men, selected for observers, were thorough
ly instructed in tho service every branch of it,iu-'
eluding telegraphing. Stations were established
in all parts of the country, under the name of
Signal Service Stations, were put In connection
with tbe chief office by telegraph, and from time
to time new lines of telegraph have been con
structed to make connections with important
points. Observations are made at every station
every eight hours, or three times daily. Tbese
observations are simultaneously made and re
corded over tbe whole country, and Instantly sent
to tbe cht ef office at Washington. There experi
enced officers, under General Myer, at once com
pare und estimate from previous observations and
comparisons, and moke predictions. Tbese prog
nostications are mado for each great section of the
United States, and the observers at the several
stations are notified of tbe result. Tbe forecasts
are often made UyHeneral Myer himself, but bis
able assistants.Licutenants Craig and Dcswoopt,
and Professor Abbe, each do their share of the
work. Our system of signal service has been
steadily growing Into rublic favor and confidence
at home, aud it is gratifying to us that it has at
tracted commendation, as well as critical
attention abroad. "Old Probabilities" is
as much a feature with the dally news
papers as any part of its local Intelligence,
and its prognostications of tbe weather are eager
ly sought after every morning. Men of tbe high
est scientific attainments manage this branch of
tbe United Stales Government, and tbe success of
tbe system of meteorological service, and tbe com
pliment paid it by the Treasury Committee of tbe
British Parliament, Is merited and deserved. Great
credit is due to General Myer for tbe success of
tbe National Weather Bureau. Tbe introduction
f our system into the English ssrvloe will have ,

working between tbe two most important weather
bureaus orgaulzed, and can not fail to be pro

A recent dispatch from New Zealand stated that
a great many persons were out of employment in
that new and growing country. Tbe simple an
nouncement will have a tendency to deter many
emigrants from going there. Strenuous efforts
have long been making to direct emigration from
tbo United States in that direction, and naturally
enough there is a continual demand to know some
thing about tbe so-called promised land. Some in
teresting statements are contained in a paper re
cently read by Mr. Archibald Hamilton before
an English statistical soclety.which are Introduced
briefly here as a matter of general interest. He
contends that living is cheaper and wages higher
in New Zealand than in London. The population
is given as follows: English, 391,856; Chinese, 4.800;
Maories, 45,470; total. 442,126. Immigration stead
ily Increased siuce 1870, and is coniinually flowing
there. The people are energetic aud enterprising.
In 1873 there were 145 miles of railway open, and
in 1875 there were 542 miles at work. Iu lfttf tbe
receipts for telegraphic messages were 9,115, and
lu 1875 74,420. The exports of wool from New
Zealand in 1SC6 footed m value 1,354,000, and in
IMS 3,3l'8,000. The Crown lauds in New Zealand
originally amounted to 47.000,000 acres. Over 13,
OOO.OOO have been sold or otherwise appropriated
and the area to be disposed of is larger than the
whole area of England. The cultivated area of
New Zealand has trebled during the past six
years. Tho exhibit is encouraging, but we cer
tainly have enough land to spare iu the United
States for all who wish to seek new homes, and
though business is dull here, taken all in all, the
working classes are better tfl tbnu iu most couu
tries. England is anxious to settle up her new
dominions and dispose of ber lauds for money,
out wo certainly would not advise any ouo to leave
the United States for New Zealand.

A MvBterlons Suicide
The Niagara Falls Gazette, of the 7th instant,
has the following account of tbe singular suicide
of an unknown young man at tbe Falls: "About
noou on Monday, a stranger, apparently about
twenty -Ave years of age. dressed in black clothes,
with a black slouch bat. and a snufi'-oolored over
coat, bis lace smooth, with tbe exception of an
ouimrn mustache, applied at the upper gate to
Prospect Park for admittance, and after paying
bis fee entered and walked along the bank to a
point Just below the tail-raoe that empties In the
river. Au attache of the park walked dowu to
ward tbe stranger for the purpose of directing
luin where to obtain tbe most attractive view
of the scenery around the grounds. His
attention was attracted from the man for
a moment, and when be turned he was
thunderstruck to see tbe stranger wading out into
the rapids. Be instantly shouted, 'Come back,
you fool, you will go over the falls." The only
attention the man paid to this gratuitous advice
was to throw himself forward on his face, and
strike out lustily for tbe brink of the cataract.
Just helow where be entered was a small cascade,
over which be was carried, and under the water
out of fight for a moment. When be emerged his
hat was off, and a moment later he obtained a
foothold in the rapids, and stood up waist deep in
the foaming water. Mitobell, the park attache,
had by this time reached Prospect Point, whore
be bad hastened in hopes of being able to reach
the man wheu be came down the stream. The
stranger, standing in tbe rapids, saw Mitchell,
and divining his object, tustantly struck out again,
swimming lustily out further from the shore, and
successfully placing himself far beyond the aid
of the astonished man on the bank. Just as the
stranger reached the brink, and as he went over.be
doubled himself up, clasped bis hands over
tiis head, and went down to his death.
Of course the body of the suicide bns not been re
covered, and the chances are against its ever be
ing tound. There is no clue whatever to the Ident
ity of tbestraneer. It is thought that he arrived
in town on Conductor Story's ujornlnir train from
Lewiston. although it can not definitely be ascer
tained whether be came at that time or earlier in
tue morning, owing to the very meager account
given of tbe suicide's personal appearance. As a
consequence nothing is known of the reason im
pelling tbe suicide to commit self destruction.
Those who saw him say be had every appearanoe
of being sober aud in bis right mind. At the pres
ent time of writing no inquiries have been made
here for any missing party, and tbe mystery sur
rounding the ailair remains as impenetrable as
Aparaobapbist remaiks that Ibe man who de
nied that neuralgia comes on in foggy weather,
is convinced now (bat it was great mist-ache.

The New Secretary of Stale.
New York. March 8. Wben Secretary Morrill
made his speech lu Wall street the Saturday before
tue election, a little man in a butterntit-coioroa
overcoat worked his way to tbe rear ot tbe speak

and Been eyes produced a hearty ronnd or cneers
from the crowd below. The little rrrtin was Wil
liam M. Kvarts, who bas stood prominently before
the publio for many years, but never so promi
nently as now. Those who recall the great Con
vention at Chicago in 1860 will nlso recall I ne part
played there by Mr. Evarts. When the procession
whs formed for the march to the Wigwam, the
New York delegation led the way. At its beud
was Tom Uyer, carrying a showy banner ot blue
and silver, with tbe name of William H. Sewar.1
as its motto. Beneath the shadow of this banner
marched Mr. Evarts and 6enator Nye, then and al
ways dubbed "Jim." Everybody knows the rest;
how Mr. Evarts presented the name of New

Convention decided asaiust him, Mr. Evarts graee
lully and happily seconded the nomination of
After sixteen years, Mr. Evarts succeeds to tbe
Place under President Hayes which Mr. Seward
filled under President Lincoln. That this is in ac
cordance with his proper ambition tbero can be
no question. Mr. Evarts never baa been an olliee
secker or a politiciau in the ordinary sense. But
he has no less pride than most men, and was
stirred more in a political way by tbe presentation
of bis name for tbe Governorship last summer
than by any other event, perhaps, in his public
care;r. It was extremely tortuuate, all the same,
lh.it the strong influence of Ueurge William Cur;is
failed to carry tbe day.
A FAKM WHICH PATS.
Tt was not my purpose, however, to talk about
politics. Mr. Evaris is nn exception to most gen-
t'emen-Tarmers. tie makes uis farm at Windsor
pay. Kis breed of cattle is noted- through
out Vermont, and the good people of tils
neifihborDood admit mat there is one city
gentleman, and a lawyerat that, who knows some
thing about farming. Mr. Greeley loved agricul
ture, it may be, more than does Mr. Evarts. He
proved this by the philosophic manner la which
he sunk money in his various experiments at cul
tivation and production, yet kept at his fields.
Mr. Evatts bought a (arm, according to his wife's
story, to provide a place wnere nis rniiuren migni
get physique. While that was possiblv tiie chief
reason, it was seconded by an interest not uncom
mon to literary and brain-working men. At bis
cuiitry -seat Mr. tvsrtg is a prince or nospiiautv.
His large tanuly mostly of daughters, and un
married goes to Vermont very early in the sea
son an'i remains very late, so that but a small part
of the year is spent by the young ladies in town,
There are two mansions on the farm, and these are
usually nlled with a merry company.
A GROUP OF MISSES.
The Misses Evarts there are five or six who can
lav claim to this title are all blondes, and have in
tbem tho same vein of sepulchral lminor, so to
sneak, whicn characterizes melr rather. J ney are
not pretty, but thoroughly intellectual and re
fined, much more alter the Boston type than the
metropolitan, in conversation, 11 you can succeed
in drawing them Into it, they show a keen seuse
of tbe humorous and careful training in books aud
otherwise a framing which is due to Mrs. Evarts.
Iu dress the young ladies are demure. They com
monly wear their hair iu the most prim of knots,
and display no ornameuts, unless it be an antique
gem, or something valuable for its ane or his
tory. But their silks are of tbe heaviest, and
Ibev do not eschew sealskin sacques. Mr.
Evarts has a son iu his law office and another
traveling, I am told, in China. His eldest
daughter Is Mrs. C. C. Beeman, who resides
here. The town honse is at the corner of Four
teenth street and Second avenue, one of tbe oid
fashioncd double mansions, and is beautifully fur
nished. With his bospi'allty and taste for good
cooking, and with a family of snch size, Mr. Evarts
bas occasion to keep up his business income, which
is said to be over $100,000, and probably does not
despise tbe revenue from his farm, which can
hardly equal tbe summer expenses.
EVARTS AND BEECHER.
Before the beginning of tbe famous trial there
was a passage between Mr. Beeober and Mr.
Evarts which bas never, I believe, appeared in
prim, au.l which well illustrates the conscientious
ness of the latter In taking up a case. Tne preacli
er called to retain tbe lawyer as Ws counsel.
Without hesitation Mr. Evarts said: "rban uot be
of any use to you, Mr. Beecher."
This was naturally admissible of question, In re
sponse to which the lawyer added: "I have never
taken part in a case of this chuiacter, aud I could
not do It unless I were perfectly certain of your
At these words Mr. Beecher rose, and, in his im
pulsive way, brought his Laud down on the law
yer's shoulders as if be were a Plymouth desk.
"You are just the man I want," said he, and asked
Mr. Evarts to give him an Interview tbe next
morning. Next morning begau a memorable meet
ing between these two representative types the
one of the emotional, Impulsive, electric preacher,
the other of the cool, balanced, logical lawyer. At
the end of two hours Mr. Evarts said: "I am sat
isfied of your innocence, Mr. Boechtr; I will take
Then began a thorough examination of all the
evidence which could be proliiced. an exact and
careful estimate of what the iiseeutlon could al
var.ee. and what the defeiiseTould bring to meet
it. For two days the lawyer nnd bis client were
closeted together, and then Mr. Evarts was ready.
The services ho rendered do not need to bo re
called. H.s uiunauenicnt of the Uial is among the
studies of incipient lawyers.
HOME AND THE CLUB.
Mr. Evarts, with all his publio and professional
engagements, is a man ot domestic tuutes and
bamts. The Union Club bus been more honored
by bis membership than by his presence, though
ne lias nad tne president s cnair mere ror an ex
tended term. He is also a member of the Union
League, which would seem more congenial to his
ch iracter. The Bar Association may be regarded
as especially bis institution, lis existence being in
no small measure due to bis euorts and influence,
But whon bis family is in town, Mr. Evarts is sel
dom to be tound at the clubs. His society is much
soueht. and no wonder. As a dry humorist, he
has no superior In the city. During tho weary
days of the Beecher trial, Mr. Evarts used to keep
the entire company ol counsel iu good spirits. 1 lie
lunches served daily to the lawyers will long be
memorable, as one of them says, for tho litiit in

Sai Franeitto Chronicle, February 25. Samuel
T. Curtis, a wealthy speculator, mine-owner and
mining superintendent, well known all over this
coast and in Nevada, some timo ago married a
young and attractive lady. But the union, though
otherwise happy, brought no Issue. This might
have pleased the wife, a lady who, as the result
proved, placed social enjoyment higher in the
scale than domestic bliss, but was distasteful
to the husband, who. tired of the turbulent life
be bad led among busy men aud speculative,
excitements, longed for a pleasant home
of which children should be the chief ornament.
Dealings in Ophir, of which be bas long been Su
perintendent, bad brought huu all the money ho
wanted, and uiorw tbau be could well spend, and
ordinary pleasures pulled upou bis appetite. To
overcome the repugnance of nis wile to maternity,
he promised one of the finest houses in the city,
with all that is costly and elegant to make her
high station befitting. Here was the terrible
Children, with wbich poor families are so abun
dantly blessed, do uot always couie at the call of
tbe rich; hence tbe necessity of compassing tbe
desired end by secret means. Perhaps tbe novel
alluded to suggested tbe way, and tbe failure In
the laie to discover the tiick fur years encouraged
the barren wife to hope tluit she could impose
with equal impunity upon her credulous spouse.
His aosenoe in Nevada for mouths at a timo
afforded opportunities that iniuht otherwise
have been wanting. Tbe services of a faith
ful maid were needed. Ruade's "Lady Bas
set" bad one who was as true ns steel, aud Mrs.
Curtis found an instrument st'ffleiently unscrupu
loes. Search was made for a pnysician to act as
medical adviser and accoueber, auit, it is said, for
700 the elder Dr. Mouser, well known in Ibe sick
rooms of San Francisco, was prevailed upon to
undertake tbe delicate and danicoroti otlloe. The
dctentiou of tbe husband on one occusiou. after an
absence of four mouths in Nevada, nave clianee
for tbe Inauguration of the dilHeult scheme. Re
turning after this long interval for a visit, his wife
Imparted to him tbe pleasant information that she
whs Irkely to become a mother.
None can appreciate the Joy, tbe seventh beati
tude of a father to whom this news is broken, as
gently as nn egg-shell at a late breakfast, except
those who have waited and longed and looked
anxiously forward in a similar situation. During
bis long delay on tneCouisiook, Mrs. Curtis, guard
ing every contingency, had contrived to induce
the necessary rotundity by means not unknown
upon tho stage, and occasionally used, though not
very recently, by actresses who bave entertained
doubts of tbe Platonic lelations of Hamlet and
Ophelia. Tbe response ot the husband to the wife
was affectionate. Joyous greetings were exchanged
with friends. Champagne flowed with true Cali
fornia liberality, and the faces of bar-keepers shone
with pleasure when their mahogany doors opened
to admit the mining superintendent, to! lowed by
a score of friends. The large aud elegaut man
sion on California street, near Jones, iust beyond
tbe gorgeous palace of Charles Crocker, was puiv"
chased for tbe lady, whose couditiou from day to
day grew more interesting, and whose health
became continually more delicate. 1 he innumer
able rooms of this house were furnished with
everything that imagination could devise, tasto
select or wealth supply soft carpets which gave
no echo when pressed by tbe leet. large mirrors
bordered witb uold aud ebony, rich furniture, ele
gant hangings, draperies of satin and lace, up
holstery of silk and velvet and priceless articles
The chambers were filled with flowers whose
fragrance might soothe the weary senses of my
lady, diamonds were given and blood horses and
handsome carriages were provided to bear her
wherever she might desire to go in search of God's
sunshine and heaven's free air. Notuing short of
paradise was too good for ber in ber peculiar state.
It was fitting that all tender and gentle In
fluences should surround her who was to be the
mother of the Curtis son aud heir. The a'ticipat
ive father, big with paternity, b:s heart swelling
with prophetic pride, made more frequent trips to
Virginia, and briefer delays in that now unattrac
tive city. Wheu with uis family lie observed with
pleasure that everything pionresded hopefully.
Advanoing pregnancy was simulated skillfully by
external appliances of increased dimensions. But
when tho critical moment ai rived, alas! be was
not near the scene of joy and danger. Tho duties
of husband and the obligations to Ophir, Savage,
and Mexican, were conflicting. At the fateful U'ok
of time be was in Vliginia, looking for the small
end of a pear-shnped bonanza. But tbe lady, now
practiced in subterfuge, was equal to the crisis.
She retired to ber luxurious chamber in the upper
part of the California street mansion. The trusty
Mouser was summoned, liberally supplied with
everything necessary in case of accident. The con
fidential tnaid was placed in charge of the lower
floor of the house to repel Intrusion. For four
hours Dr. Mouser and Mrs. Curtis were together
in ber apartment, wresiiing witn nature. But
nature was at last triumphant, ami a feeble wail
finally announced to the maid on watch amid tho
gloom of the magnificent dining-room, and the
Chinese cook in the midst of his shuimg pans and
half-cooked dinner in the kitchen, that a pew life
was added to tbo full and somewhat oppressive
vitality of the world.
"Fill the enp anl fill the can.
Have a rouse before the morn;
Every moment lilt s a num.
i-very moment one is born."
Dr. Mouser, slightly astonisbnd at his own suc
cess, hurried to tho teiegiaph ofiieo and flushed
tbe news to tbe Onliir Mine that Mrs. Cm us Imi
been deli vered of a boy, and that tho mother was
doing as well as could bo expected. If the de
ligbted father could have attacbtd himself tothe
electric wire aud been transmitted like a liiit
ning spark to San Frnucisco. his vi atitleat ion
would have been Intense. As it was, he as
obliged to take the car', and come in th
ordinary wav, tbe train seeming to creep on slower
thau a prairie schooner drawn by a spavined
sleed and a s'ckly ox in conjunction. Upon bis
arrival he found Mrs. Curtis quiio pile, paler than
her sheet, in fact, but not whiter than was rea
sonable when we consider what she bad gone
through, a wet nurse pressing an infunt moitled
with ping and purple, to an overcuarced bosom
the confl'leiitial maid looking at the intrusive father
witb sparkling eyes from behind a twinUling bed
post, nnd Ir. Mouser stealing in a serpentine
wav through tho corridors to his gig, which lin
gered ostentatiously about tho front gate. Every
thing looked roseate aud auspicious, lie kissed
bis wife tenderly upon the forehead, pressed the
wee bit of unresponsive mortality to his paterna;
11 ns. save the maid a dime, thinning It was a quar
ter eagle, and, with tear-bedlmuicd eyes, sat down
to an ormolu table, on wuicn was some pap in a
Sevres china vase, to wnro a f 300 check for nr.
Mouser, who had conferred au inestimable boon
on the Curtis household, and grafted so healthy a
scion upou tne Curtis genealogical tree.
Thus pushed the first few almost unconscious hours
after his arrival. His heart wa ) far too full for
utterance. The hopes of a fon d and nnexpectant
sire wern gratified, w tint bad been simply a kind
of UKlenuible toy before, now brightened into
rapture. Where champagne bad formerly
enalied bv bottles, it now flowed bv cases
wbere he bad treated scores, be now enter
tained huudreds. lelegraius annotincinir tbe clad
evnt were sent to Nevada and the East, until
the atniophere was heavy witn congratulations.
So passed a few brief weeks. The wiife becoming
slowly convalescent, lost ber lily hue, and the
complexion ot tne bane gradually rnnugeu irnni
the lilao of extreme Infancy to the ordinary flesh
tints of humanity.
Things might bave gone on long in this
way, and, hut for a fortuitous circum
stance, tho fictitious child might have grown
into the false beir, and Id time inherited the for
tune accumulated from Ophir bonanzas never
discovered and the pooling of storks that
belonged to tue Ring of which Superintendent

Circumstances seemed to point toward Dr.
Mouser. Ho was questioned, and a

slightest thing wrong. swearing with
bis hand above bis head. The lawyer wavered In
his belief, but did not yield. He sent a friend to
the Doctor, advising blm to avoid publicity by un
folding the crime and the means by which it had
been accomplished. Then he went to the husband
and had bim question his wife regarding the child.
He sought and foimdc-abe lady to whose cheeks
tbe roses of health bad returned, sitting by a

about tbe suspected woman, be accused ber of her
crime. She denied ber guilt, calling heaven and
all things holy to witness ber purity, weeping
meanwhile bitter tears of rage and njured virtue.
The husband was convinced. He returned to his
lawyer and so Informed him. "Go to Dr Mous

parties are guiltless." Tbe husband sought
the physician, had an Interview with

London Rtanditrd, February 24. Cardinal CuU
I en bas not forgotten the effects of the MoMuuui
funeral, from which dates tho Fenian agitation iti
Ireland, and be is resolved to leud nocountcuanca
to a demonstration now being got up with a sim
ilar lutent. Tbe Cardinal indulges in no dreams of
Irish independence. On the contrary, he would
regard tho severance oft he connection between thg
two islands, or even the weakening of their union,
as fatal to his dearest hopes. For, as might be ex.
pee ted of tbo former head of the Irish College SO
Rome tbe ecclesiastic chosen by tbe Jesuit ad
visers of Pope Pius to carry out
their policy ut tbe other side of St.
George's Channel, nnd rewarded for his
zeal by being raised to the dignity ot
a Prince of the Church tho Cardinal is an Ultra
montane of tbo Ultramontane, a prelate zealous
to exalt the supremacy of the Papacy within the
Church, and to subject to its authority all rival
powers without. Iu i no eyes of sum a churchman
revolution, republicanism, demoeraev, popular
rights, are always and necessarily hateful, for they
are uprisings on the part of the Ignorant and
giddy multitude against the L.ird's anointed. In
Ireland they have tins further and uupardouable
sin. mat they run counter tothe plans of theaxtute
Cardinal himself, lie values tho connection be
tween the two islands most highly, but for a reason
very different from that which recommends It to lay
thinkers. It seats a compact phalanx of Irish Cath
olic members in tbe House of Commons, and conse
quently enables the ma uag r of the Catholic Church
In Ireluud to apply a stiong pressure to tbe BritlsD
Foroigu Office. ! is true that Irish Calholio voters
are liable to occasional ebullitions of patnotiq
fervor, which result in the disarrangement from
time to time of the Cardinal's calculations, by the
return of fifty or sixty Homo Rulers. But the
Romish politician, whose faith ia firm In the per
manence ot the chair ot Sf. Peter, can ntl'ord to
treat with patience such passing freaks of misled
Nationalism. Tbe leuieucy, however, which may
safely be extended to so harmless a movement a
Home Rule can not for a moment be shown to
Feniamsm. It is an enemy with which no terms
can be kept, for it would keep none with the
Church. Hence the extreme bit'emess of tbe Car
dinal's reply to the committee which applied to
him for leave to convey the dead body of Mr.
O'.Mabony to the Pro-CatbeJral, ou its arrival la
Dublin from New York.
Colouel John O'Mahony, whose remains wore
lauded, amidst great exeitemeut. at tueensiown,
yesterday morning, was one of tbe original or
ganizers of the Fent.au Association. Tho loose,
disjointed disaffection which pervaded the Irisd
emigrants In the United States was encouraged to
assert itself when Irishmen found themselves ar
rayed in thousands under officers of their own
choosing, and with anus In their hands, fltliling
for or against the preservation ot the Union. It
was in the Federal and Confederate camps that
Feuianism first took root, and so early as lsia it
bad assumed such formidable dimensions that it
was able to bold nn imposing congress at
Cuicago. It continued to grow up tu
tbe eud of 1R65, when It bosstod of having
three hundred tnousmil fighting men emolleit
under its flag, and a yearly revenue or balf a mil
lion sterling. But the wicked, foolish, ill roiimd
ered raids against Canada soon Introduced dissen
sion Into Its ranks. The wiser heads among the
Fenians were strongly opposed to these laids,
which made enemies of the whole Canadian peo
ple, and alienated the public opinion of the world.
'1 lie dissenxious thus caused were aggravated by
the absurdity of the attempt made in the follow
ing year lo revolutionize Ireland, aud the brother
hood soon divided Into two rival societies. Of
one Colonel O'Mahony was chosen head center.
He was accused, whether rightly or wronirly we
do not take upon ourselves to a.iy, of appropriat
ing the money which ignorant but euthusiasiia
day laborers and servant girls poured
into his treasury. During tho two yoiirs
that followed the abortive risliiu in Ireland thn
American papers lecuied from tune to time Willi
stories of the splendor, extravagant, and prodi
gality in which be lived. His headquarters wero
said to be palatial, the uniform of uis aid" und
adjutants was described as goi enus, and the st yle
of living of himself and bis council was described
iu glowing terms. At last he resigned iu disgust;
but five years later he was induced to resnino his
old position, aud he died at the beuiunlng of this
mctitli, at tho early nvo of fifty-one, iu what ho.
doubtless, considered to be the pel forniaiieo of hi
duty. The Inst years of his life were passed
in disappointment, struggles and lll-healtb.
Whether ho was or was not really guilty
of t ue tnalfeasnuoe laid to hisehartre Mi tho days
of Fen is u popularity, it is aJuntled that of Into
he had fallen into tl.e most abject poverty, and,
indeed, was reduced to strnits under which his
reason gave way. Such was thn personam; whose
remains his nilmirers have rloelded to bring to Ire
land lor burml. If the ciccuion hud been dictated
ry the humane desire to mingle his bones with
liio.e of his kindred, tho world would respect thn
mot ive, however It might doubt the wisdom of
the resolution. But we are afraid that tne real In
tent was to endeavor Mo fan into
flame the cold ashes of tho Fenian
agnation. The use of foneral processions
for political ptirpo-.es Is well iitiierstool by tho
party of notion throughout tho world, and tn Ire
bind it bas Hlieatlv been resoited to with much
i-ftect on two noiublo occasions by the 1 emails
tlicuii-elves. We venture to predict, how
ever, that in this view the funeral will bo a fail
ure. Fenioiiistu is utterly deail In Ireland, and
can not bo galvanized into life by imy such mani
festations. Great preparations, however, lutvo
bceu made to render the demonstration as Impos
ing as possible. Committees have been formed In
several towns toorg imze a grand el occasion, and
auplicatioiis have been addressed tothe w-veinl
Roinau Cat bono Bishops for perni'sslou to rest the
corpse iu their cutheuiuls. 'I b (.uieenstown com
mittee was successful witn the i.isnup or loyue.
But in Cork nnd Dublin permission was refused,
C-ardinnl Cullen, lu particular, sending a reply lit
which he condemns both the oivuuizution or fu
neral pi ocesslons for party purposes, aud tuu aims
aril life of the deceased lload Center.
Beginning with a fling at tlm enemies of the
Church on tne Continent, I ho Cardinal reminds Ills
correspondents that "m some countries If tiny die
professing themselves unbelievers, or Socialists,
or li A Republicans, or if nuv be killed in duels
and die while ollending their Creator, public pin
cessions arc organized in their honor, and ccino
teiics are profaned by speeches delivered over
their graves lu praise of Infidelity, reuklessuess,
resistance to authority." Ai d slier dwelling on
the sanctity of chin ches, the Cardinal comes to the
consideration of tbo special request made to bun.
Mr. O'Mahony, he observes, p rloi und no great
service for his country. On tbe con
trary, be had provoked severe legislation
agaiust her. Neither bad be been a bene
factor to the Catholic Church. Quito tho reverse.
The Cnrdmul is informed that bo whs careless in
the praetice of Ins religious duties, nud had aetu
uliy written papers in a spun hostile to tbo
Church und its ministers. After this no further
reason is needed for the refusal of the audacious
request addressed to bun, but the Cardinal Is not
a niAU to shrink from a statement of his opinions,
and he adds that tho Colonel was a head center
oT Fenians, that be extorted large sums to promote
their "absurd moveiiien's." and continued lo do
so, even after Holy Church had anathematized
their proceedings. Ou all these grounds he
refuses to allow the body to no
in slate In the Pro-CaMiedral. Cnrt'lnut
Cullen, we are bound to say. deserves credit for
thus boldly confronting a moveuinut that poiudhly
might become dangerous, and for steruly iusist
inSMhat rebellion shall not be in any way counte
nanced by tho Cnurch. Bur, ns a muter of course,
his decision has given deep offense to the exticma
Nationalists tliroiigbnut Ireland. The delegatus
who landed at Qiieenstown with tho body yester
day morning, indeed, are said to be so indlifiiant
as to threaten to convey It back to New York. It
would be bard, we confess, to eudure two lournnvs
across the Atlantic at this seasou for nothing, and
to forego tne anticipated demonstration agaiust
the Saxons; but there would be one advantage lu
this ending of the matter. It would effectually
save. Ireland from the linpoi tatinu of more do-
