PAKNELL AND HIS MISSION. Mr. Charles Stewart Parnell, the oelebrated Irish agitator, arrived in New York oity yes terday. He comes to this country to present the cause of distressed Ireland and to solicit aid for those sadly in need of it. In Ireland the system of land tenure and other hindrances to the prosperity of the peasantry make it hard for them to live even in comparatively good times, and when the times are not good distress oomes quickly and is widespread. The immediate causes of the present condition of things there are the wet season, which brought general failure of the crops ; the sudden and pinching competition forced upon the graziers by the large importation of American cattle into England, which seems to have brought ruinous losses upon Irish farmers ; the over crowded condition of some parts of the island and the deterioration of the potato, of which only about one-fourth the usual quantity was produced. In oonseqnenoa of these misfor tunes great and general Buffering exists among the inhabitants of a large part of Ireland. The poorer people are already short of food, and their supplies will soon be exhausted. In a short speech yesterday Hon. John B Dillon, who accompanies Mr. Parnell, said that the chief object of their visit to the United States is not to collect money to relieve the Irish people. He estimates that 250,000 people will be without food for four or five months, and does not expect that the two or three millions required to feed that number can be collected here. Moreover, he thinks it a calam ity that the government is bound to deal with. Therefore, while they will be most happy to receive any money that may be contributed to relieve the distress that prevails, he announces that the great ob j eot they have in coming here is to procure sympathy and assistance of pub lic opinion and also funds to carry on the agi tation at the present progressing in Ireland, in the hope that such pressure will be brought to bear on the British Government as to prevent distress "by bringing to an end that oppression which has made Ireland a miserable exoeption among the civilized nations of the earth and to break down what now seems to be the ac cepted order of things, namely, that every fifteen or twenty years we must make an appeal to the charity of other nations." It would have been better, we think, for Mr. Parnell and his companion to come here hav ing as their chief object to proem e relief for their starving countrymen rather than to fan the flame of agitation, but the fact that they did not should not influence the charitable against helping those who need it so much. What the plans of the agitators for the amelioration of the condition of Ireland are is well told by Canon O'Hagan in an Interview printed yes terday. They are besides immediate relief for the famine districts reduction of rents, fixity of tenure, and for the Government to do what it can to create a peasant proprietary. Of the latter plan the Oanon says : The English Government justified the con fiscation of the landed property of the Irish and their introduction of the feudal system on the grounds that they held the altum dom inum that they were doing it for the public good, in the same way as they would insist on running a railroad through your estate for the public service. Now, Mr. Parnell does not mean for a moment to have the Government fall back on the prerogative of altum domi nion, and restore to the people estates and landed properties that have passed through the hands of families who have in the aggre gate taken out probably twenty different titles. Such a doctrine would be absurd, worse than absurd, downright revolutionary. His idea, on the contrary, is practical and sensible. In the Enoumbered Estates Court, at Dublin, large estates are yearly put up for sale and sold far below their value. Could not a Government subsidy be set apart to purchase them at the auction sale at a reason able price? Then let the estate be divided up into small farms of from twenty to a hun dred acres, these farms appraised and dis posed of to farmers, for a yearly rent that will pay the interest on the Government in vestment and at the same time an annual in stallment of the whole, until in a few years years the Government is repaid, interest and capital, and the tenant or purchaser becomes the real proprietor of the farm. This is merely the introduction of the principle. But there are in Ireland, besides estates that oould be so purchased, say from four to five millions of acres of waste and wild lands that could be bought for a mere song and experi mented upon. The system of purchasing property and so establishing a proprietorship for farmer tenants is at present in full opera tion on the quondam Established Church lands and is doing well." Mr. Parnell is 33 years old, unmarried, and was educated at Harrow Sohool and at Mag dalen College, Cambridge. lie comes of a family distinguished for worth and ability. His mother is the daughter of Admiral Stew art, "Old Ironsides," who commanded the United States frigate Constitution in the war of 1812. He is a member of Parliament, not a very wealthy man, and is at present proba bly the most popular man in Ireland, where is worshipped by the masses. He has been thus described by a recent writer : Mr. Parnell is the reverse in appearance to one's ideal of an Irish political demagogue. Young, tall, slender and self-possessed in his manner he looks, what indeed he is acknowl edged to be even by the most virulent of his critics, a perfect gentleman. He is not by any means gifted with the elequence of a Demosthenes or the accomplishments of a Cicero. He lacks the brilliant poetio fancy that lent such charm to the magnificent ora tions of Kichard Lralor Sheil and, later on, to the lofty and eloquent utterances of a Thom as Francis Meagher. Still less is he possessed ot the marvellous intellectual attainments of O'Oonnell. On the contrary, he is, at least to the superficial observer, cold and passionless. But he is resoluteness personified. He is one who will both dare and do. He does not, in language of magniloquent hyperbole, dwell on the past misgovernment of Ireland. He has taken to heart the lesson of Longfellow, that it is the duty of man to 'act in the living present' rather than indulge in useless and empty denunciations of the irrevocable past. From the time he rises to speak until he sits down he arrests your whole attention. You see at a glance that he is no mere trading politician. He is not one of those who would swim with the popular tide for a time, but sell their "patriotism" on the first longed-for opportunity that presents itself in the shape of a situation as junior lord of the treasury or admiralty, or any other snug berth that would put money in their purse. He is no political share broker, anx ious to purchase a reputation in the cheapest market and sell it in the dearest. No snug colonial appointment would tempt him to stray from what he at least considers it to be the straight path of duty. He is no hungry politician. He is no emasculated political or social roue. He, on the other hand, prefers the welfare of a people to the aggrandizement of a class. You may doubt his wisdom his worldly wisdom but it is impossible to doubt that he is inspired by patriotic and even the most chivalrous motives. good of her people there.

Pillsbury is the arch-conspirator in I the Maine business, and the first number of his new daily Democratic paper the Stand l ard wbioh appeared Thursday, contained the ! following significant statement : "The oom- ing session of the Legislature will be one of the most important, interesting and exciting ever held in the State. For the first time in twenty-four years the opponents of the Re publican party will be in a majority in both branches and in control of the State govern ment." This does not look as if the Demo cratic managers had any idea of correcting the action of the Governor and Council. It is also reported that the Democrats have ax ranged for contesting the seats of a number of Republicans, and that in case they should determine to settle the election cases before doing anything else they would turn out an other Republican for every one of those counted out whom they saw fit to admit, and so preserve their majority.

It complains that the Nation shuts its eyes to the fact that untrained levies have ceased to count in modem warfare, and experience goes to show that great masses of men skillfully handled are an absolute neces sity if any country is to hold its own on land. With Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Russia, even Spain and Boumania armed to the teeth, possessed all of them of a system of military service which English statesmen refuse to adopt or to find a substitute for, the British Army holds a very different position from what it did in 1848, or even in 186G. Even the very enumeration of forces shows the dif ference ; for who twenty or thirty years ago would have thought of giving consideration to Italy or Spain ? Yet to-day the first named country is an element of disturbance the more in an already troubled medley ; not the less so because she has worked hard to have a power ful fleet, and at this moment, in conjunction with one other country, might occasion Eng land grave embarrassment for a time.

These officials visited the convicts and found the sick without medical care and covered with vermin, while the well were so filthily clad, housed in such stinking quarters and fed upon such poor food that nearly all had the scurvy, and many of them finally succumbed to exhaustion and dropsy. Neither sick nor well had a change of clothing, and Superin tendent Lipscomb confirms the reported beat ing and killing of the convicts by their guards.

Hamden and the Canal Railroad Some Reasons wliy Hamden Snonld Sus tain the Resolutions Passed Dec. 8, 1879. fo the Editor of the Jotbkai. and Coubixb : First. The meeting wasfairly warned and largely attended by the best citizens and heaviest taxpayers of the town, the Selectmen taking unusual pains to notify voters of the meeting by having the call printed and circu lated in every district. After an able discussion, the opposition party speaking at least four times, the resolu tions were passed by a large majority. As for the supposition that no appropriation would be made; at that meeting, no one had authority to say what would be done, the voters of the town being fully competent to say what resolutions should be carried. Second. Every voter present, who could do a sum in simple interest, knew just how much would have to be paid at a certain rate of in terest so there could be no deception on that aooonnt. Third. The Selectmen, who are the finan cial as well as the general agents of the town, are especially instructed to make the beet terms possible for the town, and oan, if they choose.have the notes drawn payable at ths option of the town. Fourth. The village of Centreville has other accommodations that are of far more value to it than its present railroad facilities, the railroad oompany, I am informed, receiv ing less than half a dollar a day from its pat ronage, and the proximity of New Haven en ables the citizens of Centreville to obtain their freight at a less oost than it can be delivered to them by the railroad oompany. When "the world moves" fast enough to enable them to use their "five valuable water powers," they can be accommodated with an especial road leading to New Haven, upon whioh the oars drawn by a dummy engine can run many times a day. Fifth. "The climax of blunders" was no blunder at all, since, as every one knows, the present railroad bed will legally revert to the town should the road be moved, and no reso lution for or against can hinder it. The rail road oompany are not allowed "to walk off with $15,000 of interest bearing notes," or with one cent of the people's money until the railroad is removed from our highways, and re-located to the satisfaction of the Selectmen ; and not one farthing will have to be paid for roadbed or gravel more than that already ap propriated. It was considered safer to leave the matter in the hands of the Selectmen, who have the interests of the whole town to look after, than in those of a speoial commit tee, who might have private axes to grind at the expense of the public The financial damage Mount Carmel, a small part of the town, will sustain by the re moval of the railroad is a matter ot various opinion ; but it cannot be at the very most enough to counterbalance the benefit received by the rest of the town, and the other towns around that are interested, i'or, as is well known, the close proximity of the railroad to the carriage road is a great annoyance and In convenience, as well as positive danger to the lives of people and animals obliged to pass near it. The access to the depot, we are led ta be lieve, will be but little if any more inoonven ient than at present, and the disadvantages incurred in the removal of bulk freight will ' not be serious and affect only a few individu als. No one is prohibited by the resolutions from using his influence to further his private interests, provided the track be removed to a safe distance from our streets. Finally. There is no difference of opinion as to the necessity of having the railroad moved, it being the more urgent now from the fact that parties out of town are moving for a new carriage road, whereby they may reach New Haven in safety from all towns north of us, being entitled to this by law, the repairing and keeping in order of which will fall upon the town of Hamden, and the constant and ever recurring expenses will far exceed the interest on $15,000. . . We now call upon our citizens to sustain the resolutions and avail themselves of this cheap and easy way of getting rid of a publio nuisance we have been fighting against for years with little hope of sucoess. We at last have it in our power to free ourselves and our children from this souroe of danger and an noyanoe. Let us not throw away the opportu nity for doing lasting good by neglecting this chance ; for the case must soon be decided one way or the other. We do not believe our oitizens will repudiate their obligations so re cently taken. We invite the citizens of Ham den to a careful scrutiny of the resolutions. They can judge for themselves if they are not well adapted to further the best interests of the public. They are as follows : "Whereas, the dangerous proximity of cer tain of the principal highways of this town to the tracks of the New Haven and Northamp ton Company is frequently the result of se rious accidents and renders travel thereon at tendant with great hazard and peril ; be it therefore resolved, that the town of Hamden hereby appropriate fifteen thousand dollars for the improvement of said highways, to wit, the old "Cheshire road" and the "Cheshire turnpike," so called. And the Selectmen are hereby authorized and directed to expend not more than fourteen thousand dollars to secure the removal of the tracks of the New Haven and Northampton Company from their present location adjacent to said highways, from a point in ths vicinity of the Methodist Episco pal church on Hamden Plains to a point near the bouse of Lorenzo Peck at Mount Carmel : provided, however, that said removal Bhall be effected on or before the first day of October, 1880, and that said railroad company shall re locate their tracks at suoh a safe distance from said highways as not to endanger publio travel, and as shall be acceptable to the Select men. And to carry this resolution into effect the Selectmen are hereby authorized and empow ered to borrow the sum of fifteen thousand dollars upon the credit of the town, upon the most favorable terms and conditions possible, and that one of said conditions shall be that notes shall be so drawn as that not more than one thousand dollars shall fall due in each year." 0. F. coreonFence. Some Experiences In lUassaclinsetts Hoi yoke's Remarkable Growth. New Haven, Dec. 31, 1879. To the Editor of the JovmsiJ. ahd Cotbibb: . I am at home after many a long journey , and the close of the year finds me happy and contented. Within the past six months the business interests of the country at large have greatly revived, and my letters of prediction written months ago have all come true. The future prospect for business never was better than to-day, and a new year begins under the most favorable auspices. Never was a more "Merry Christmas" spent in our land than the one just passed. Never were more presents given or received, or more money spent in its celebration. Never before so many homes made happy by the liberality of kind Provi denoe, and we begin a "Happy New Year" in reality. During the past few days I have not been far from home, but I must give you a brief account of a short trip into Massachusetts last week. Leaving New Haven on the ' 'lightning express" in the afternoon, I was soon in North ampton, where dozens of teams from the country were hitched in front of the various stores of that good old town, and the families of the neighboring farms were laying in a sup ply of "food and raiment" for the winter. It was a cold day the coldest yet this season and sleighing was never better. The snow was not deep, but bard and smooth, and the air bright and clear, and fairly "biting"- cold. After finishing my business there, I took a train for Holyoke, which town is fast becom ing one of the most wealthy end important in the State, and as I passed through one of its principal streets at 5 o'clock p. m., the dozens of long mills were lighted in every window, presenting a lively sijht. Persons who have not visited that pkoe in several years can scarcely imagine how it has grown of late. It has one of the finest hotels and ' court houses to be found in any part of the country, besides many splendid large business blocks of recent and modern con struction which rival those in the largest oities of our land. Its water privileges are almost without equal in any part of the world. They are furnished by damming up the Con necticut river a few miles above, and throw ing all the required water into two canals, several hundred feet wide, furnishing water power enough to seemingly drive all the ma chinery of the world. Staying in Holyoke a short time I came to Springfield and at once took the train to Westneid, whioh of late has gained a reputa tion for "wind and flood" disasters. They are building a bridge there now, that they hope will withstand any element, and it is said that when they wished to demolish the old one (which was not destroyed by the last in undation) they could not get it down until they set it on fire, and as the new one is to be built of solid iron it will be likely to stand I was about to say forever. By the way, speaking of Westfield, I must tell you a story of one of the merchants of that place, who vouches for its truth. He is the son of the party of the "first part." He said his father (who has been a dry goods merohant for about fifty years) was awakened some little time ago in the night by a noise of some one breaking into his store, and he quietly arose, went to the window, lifted it up, thrust his head out and said to the party of the second part engaged below : ' 'My friend, if you are a rob ber, yon just wait there a moment and I will get my gun and shoot you, I will!" and then lowered the window and returned to his bed and slept until morning. The would-be rob ber departed at once without even bidding him "goodnight," and never again returned. Now, how is that for an "encounter with a burglar ?" After my visit of an hour at West field, I took the oars again that same evening and rode np the Canal railroad as far as East hampton, and had finished my business there (it being then nearly 10 o'clock), and was going to the famous "Mansion House" to spend the night, when I heard "musio in the air." It was beautiful and dear, and the moon never shone brighter upon the snow, and the thought flashes upon me at once "a sleighing party I" And sure enough, it was a regular "Nightingale" load, and they were singing as merrily as only those can who are on ride of that kind. ' They were bound for the very hotel where I was to pass the night. - I was only a minute in advance of them on arriving at the door, and I oould not help watching them as they came in by couples, with faces red with excitement and the keen air, but seemingly as happy as it was possible for mortals to be. It was a large party there were several dozens of them and they made themselves very much at home by their own actions, and by the acts of the kindly landlord, Mr. Hill, the owner and proprietor of the house. Being tired I retired at once to a steam-heated room, and several times during the night did -1 half awake to hear the jolly sleighing party enjoy the merriment of a "good time." When I think of them I wonder who can say that there is not enjoyment in New England winter. The next morning at the breakfast table I heard the party complimented and highly ' spoken of, and learned also that the thermom eter had reached a point of 10 below aero the day before at that place.
