I have nothing to tin with him matrimonially, but as n sovereign of Iln.'latul In li s relations to Ireland. Henry was a hater ol iiiiorder. and determined. If possible, to end di-order In Ireland. Having aoertiilned the condition of the country from a tru ly cutis, try, he sent Hie Duke ol Norfolk oter. who In vited the chief to a conferen. o. It was llenrv's wish t proceed by ways of law and te.ir-on In toad of trcng.h nnd violence. Ho did not wish to force tho Irish to adopt Rngllsh laws and rusloirs. but preferred to sway them byinelhods nf peniinsl'in, without doprlting them of their rstubli-died privilege.

Would that 1 could say that F.llzahcth'K conduct to Ireland ttasas upright as her oaure wnsli.st. In the main. 1 haveno doubt, she de aired only k'ood to Ireland, but the n establish tneiit of ropery In Kiivlaud had end.'dlli a pio-i-cutlou of the J'rotcsljiits, In which she almost lust l.er own life, and the l'rolesluits were itialoun to letallato when the tlmo came.

It Is ussier to blsi KtUnbotU tut what she did than to show what she slioull hare done. The Irish pretend that If thoy had been lelt In tho enjoyment of their rellnlon, they would have rennlned loyal subjects. Hllrabeth would havo boon oxcoedlndy saiiffulno to In duluo In such an Idea. Inland, while hnuland was I'rotestant, would have bocn on tho sldn of r.ii(tlands enemies. Tho Idea vtas that Ireland should bo Kovcrnod bv her own laws and onjoy the sami) rltflils as lhnrland. and to allow the bishops of tho Irish church to carry 011 their function) without taking, tho oath of allegiance and disclaiming tho Pope, would bo to hand the country over to deadly enemies, These bishops had taken tho oath to her father.

Why was this handful of herotlcs allowed to remain In Hut land at nil? Why did not the Irish nation rlso with their sticks and their pikes and drive liichuir-stancd mercenaries Into theses? For this re.iS n tho IrlJh lire not a nation at.all. KHz ! elh understood tliclr dispositions wc I. Slu knew tnat tho wisest way to man age them was to turn their swords against each other. Hllzaboth could have es tablished a forco of pollen In Ireland responsible to tto Viceroy that would have protected the people from maratidlni: chieftains. Four thou sand men distributed In garrisons would have been sulllclenl. TIIK nllltlEIIT ok tiik cinirrs. Vllabeth made the loyal part keep In order the disloyal. When any chief was troublesome, ho bribed a nelirhboruu chief to make war on hint by thepromlse of his lands. The result was i.erfectly horrllile. Tho forty-lite years of F.llza beih's relirn were to Irelmd years of wrolchod ms. Home provinces ruse In revolt olio after a lother. One alter another they wore put down by tliclr own arms. After dwelling upon the policy of Kllzabeth to divide the lrlrh Into hostile factions, Mr. Froude proceeded to describe the rosult o' that Iiollcy. llrother, he said, was arrayed against irother, father against son. comrade against loiiirade. "I pal dim none, said ono of the V.iu llsh odlccrs, "until they como tn inc. having sunned their hands In blood." Tho l-arl of 1 esmond was iminlcred by one of his own de p njents, and his head was pent In a sack to London as a grateful offering to I'llzabeth. All of the soutli of Ireland was made a rmrtklng wlldcruoss-towiis, tillages, churches, and cas tles of the chiefs all In ruins.

Ills army, hnwevur, was ulllmalely broken to pieces; the Spanish force 1 which had landed to Join hllu had surrendered : and the rebellion, like all which had g ne before ll, collapsed, In a military sc ise it had been tho most formidable which c.ii.dii'tli hud yet eucoiinlered. It Is noth euble and must In' laid to the credit side of her ac i mini, that on this occasion there was no tin do t.tc retr.hiitlon ; thero were no exei utloii. . nd no confiscations ; Tyrone was n.inloiud, mid all the others were pardoned. There had been enough bloodshed 111 Ireland. Elizabeth herself was dying when tho war ended, and she closeil her reUn and tho la-.t hours of her llfo In an set of magnanimity. The question of s'.rcnglh between the two countries had 11 'W Le trlcJ. and It might have been t.iken as ik. uled. Three times Ireland h at risen to shake off tho F.ugllsh yoke; three t Hies she had failed, and now she lay panting und exhausted, Hut the problem of a tlual settlement was as far oif as ever. Applaue.J To goteru Ireland required a permanent force ot sufficient sireli.-th lo keep the peace, and for the existence of such a force there was 110 prntiilon made In the Kngllsh Constitution. If Ireland was ever lo be Idcritllied with F.ngl did, It ever tho ttt o Islands were to bo linked together with uuv kind of o do ring connection, tin-re Mas but one expe dient by whli Ii sucn a result could be brought about! Ireland must be colon-zed by iiieu ot aim her race and creed. um 11 whose totally tho ling ish could rely. The nctv eettleis limn nul bo line the ."lonnaii, mure military gov ernors; lliey min-t bo 111011 who would tlmiii . elves set an example of Industry. This ex pel linenl was tried.

NEW CniTICH qUARIIKIX. Hut ettl spirits do not lose their hold so easily. Ileaten on one side, they made their next bleach on another, and new quarrels grew up bolwcon tne CaltlnUta und the members of the Estab lished Church. In lKio&lrThomaa Wenlworlh, better known as the Karl ut Btratford, tvat lent over as Governor to Ireland. He saw the value 0 the Ulster settlement, and beproposod to add to It another tn Connaught which should bo composed of a still more loyal eloment. He wished to conciliate the Catholics, but he could only settle Connaught by dispossessing a num.. ber of Irish proprietors. He wished tn strengthen the Kngllsh colonists ; but the result "of hl labors was to create deadly enemies on all TTUOot-liliu. Mr. Froude then spoke at some length upon Ike administration of tho Karl of Stratford and the condition of tho colonists lu Irolaud, THE a HEAT IIEDKMJOX Or 18(1, We are now, he continued, on the edge of tho most tremendous event In all Irish history the great rebellion ut 11)41. I will not detain you long over It. The picture Is so horrible that we need but glance at Its leading features. Mr, 1 roude then gate a sketch nf the different par ties existing lii Ireland at that time, 1 spoke ot tho horrible massacres of the native Irish under Kllzaboth. In my reading of history 0110 great phenomenon over present Itself bo lore me. It Is that every political crime Isu debt registered in heaven, and that payment to the very last farthing, with Interest and with compound Interest, Is demanded nf those who, when the bill Is sent 111, represent the person of the criminal. It Is not thoso who commit the crime who have generally to suffer for It: It falls on others who are Innocent; and this baa been from the beginning of time ono of the great mysteries of the I'rovldentlsl government of the world. We cannot precisely understand It, hut there Is a lesson whlon we mar draw from It. Thore Is many a hot spirited man who will do wrong If ho thinks hat the risk Is his own, and that he alono will be held anstterablo. Hewlll think more gravely 11 he knows that he may himself escape, but that thu penalty of his III deeds will fall upon the unburn guueratluu. Would Sir John Han kins have gone negro hunting Into Africa If ho could haro looked forward tn Gettysburg 7 I believe bo would scuttle his ship soonor In mid Atlan'lc, and bury himself and all that belonged to hlin In tho bottom of tho spa.

The history ot the case referred to lu the fore going letter, lu which the names of Suarci and Ilenial are mentioned, Is as follows: It appears that Ferrer de Couto Influenced some friends of Ida nbout seven years ago loptir o.iase the Spanish paper 1-a Cninloi, then edited here tiy Mr. San Martin, and to place hlin (Ferrer de Couto) In the editorial chair. Shortly after Tils entrance Into this position, It suited his tlowa or nature to Indite from Now York a scries of article or letter particularly sovoro upon Cubans lu general and upon a set of JmTg ' men of Havana, known as the (itriuuVl I,omTr, In particular. Ono of the most virulent of these letters Ferrer do Couto managed to have repub lished In the !i rto df let .ViiHun and the 'mini, then the leading Journals of Havana. He more over sent from hero n number of conies of said letter, printed 011 locrse sheets, which he caused tn be placarded on the most conspicuous cor ners of that city. Tho Insult wns so flagrant that the young men deemed It their duty to notice It, especially at one of the points Implied In tho Intuiting letter was that tear would deter anr Cuban from ro senttng It at a meeting of the Ineos. L.its were drawn to determlue by whom Ferrer de Couto should be chastised for hi Insolence. The lot fell to Mr. Manuel Suarex and Mr. Melchor llarnal, two young men of good families and honorable antecedents. They Immediately left Havana for Now York, and calling upon Mr. Ferrer de Couto, demanded a retraction or sat isfaction for the Insults contained in his letter. Ho promised to give them all the satisfaction they could desire, and tho Cubans loft Ills office. Shortly thereafter they wero arrested and lodged In Jail 0.1 the complaint of Ferrer de Coutn for attempting tn provoke htm to tight a duel. They found ball and on It wero released, but the new of Ferror de Couto' cowardly ac tion wns noon bruited about, and he was snub bed by every one ot hi country who laid claim to tho least self-respect. Then old (len. Don Do mingo (lolcourla-slnco garrotod in Havana,called upon Couto and Intimated to hlin thai ho would be publicly chastised by the Cubans whose ar rest he had so shamefully caused n ulcus ho wroto a written retraction of the instill, Couto consented to any extreuio to aavo himself, and (lolcouria dictated the above amply anntogetlo letter, which Couto Joyfully signed. Tills apol ogy was republished lu tho Jliirtodclii Jiiiiri'i and f're lint of Havana, and posted on the same conspicuous corner thai had served tor Hie pub lication uf the retracted aspersions, TUB CUIl AGAIN TUII.N8 TAIL. 80 much forthe past. The result of the whole ridiculous affair, which we gather from the columns uf iicroluclon of yesterday, was as might be expected. It all ended In the white foather. Ferrer do Couto challenged Abren. The challenge was accepted. Ferrer docllned to light anywhere outside ot llelglum. The par ticular reason of Ids doubtful intention to honor the King of Uelglum with an Infraction of the law ot his country does not transpire. Ilt may have beon based upon Ferrer' reoolloo 1 not the energy with which said potentate prevented any violation of his soli during the lute Frauco-Uermitu war. Anyhow, Abren' ecom' accepted even Ferror'a occentrio choice ot ground, and everything was In rcadlneua for the departure of the belligerent, vthen sud denly, after challenging his man, and i.fter the challena had beon accepted even with such un heard of conditions, Ferror suddenly discovers that Abren was unworthy of his powderl He trumps up some absurd charges against the young Cuban, charge whose falsity Is proved b) a court of honor. Then, unwilling to tight Abren, Ferrer chal lenges the editor of La tepolurton, Mr. Aniao. This challenge waa accepted, but Forrer object to tho choice of a second made by Ids adver sary, who hail deputed Oen. llomabo do Varona (llombota) to represent hlin. This foil to the gruunil, and to make himself still more absurd, Ferrer then sends an Insulting letter to Varona. However, the upshot of the tvholo matter la no tight 1 An oxtractot Varona's last letter to Ferrer explains the entire proceeding. It read a fol low 1 You title In your tlrst letter that you took atep, by meant uf Mr.J.C.

I saw David Coll'ge on Monday morning after the riot, and converted with hlui in hit own house. 1 went into the houso, sud he said, " they csme sfter me snd compelled me to go." I ssld to him, "I wouldn't hsve gone." 'lollego sebl again that be was compelled to go I asked htm why?" He said 1 "Trier w a ureal bin man who had a bntcher's sieel.That Ion?

He replied that he did not know any ot them. So -e wss compelled to ko. and tsrtedsloiigto.tbeplsee where the riot wss. 1 atked Idm bow It took place when they got there? Ho said lie was ill ine rearsoisrnecouiuiioi ten very uiui-11 shout It. When they got up to fie log houses there had been one man killed.

There wat one person thot 1 a colored man under the porch. College aid! "When tmy came back tbla colored man that had been shot tt tney went down htd crept some dlt tancc. I ctn'l tay how far. When we came op to htm th colored man aald 1 1 CJentlemen, 1 sm an In nocent man,' la a very low tone of voice. Then they went to work to best him over tne hesd with pick hsndles until hla head waa nearly loathed In." Those are the words College nsedas nesras lean recollect. Isked Whoilldit?" Re tsld he sn too fsr to the rear to see who did it. 1 think thst Is all he said on that subject, In this conversation nothing beyond what I have related was said atout the gun with which the shooting wss done. I Mked College where Ihey got the guntr Hay he,"l taw tbe gun that they were s.-lvrlth Handing In my home at night." After th row tho gun si brought back by somebody, but he dldnJt knuw who. I think that waa all that waa uld. Lemliel Apgr wat st College'. College tsked me who thst man wat? I think that wa what he said. Re went further than that, and aald.watn't he trying to find out shout the row thai had takeu place I told tihu I thouftht not. Cro a-examlnatlont I waa rnpornaed In Ihlt ease last night between snd 10 o'clock. Hist wa the first I knew shoot It 1 1 hsve no lies how I came to be anb pcensed. 1 saw David College In his own house when I hsd this conversation with him. I waa anting In the bonse near li e door, snd be wss nesr by, part of the time aitttng, and part of the time standing. I had come over lu my baker wagon. I atopped to aee how inoch bread he wanted, snd I had always aet a good deal by College, and 1 atked bliu s few questions to tee If h wa likely lo get in any trouble ou secount of the riot. Whst he said waa partly la sntwer to question 1 put him, snd part he voluntarily told in explaining the matter to me. College told Apgarthat he waa In dan. ger of hla life If he had not rone at he wat compelled to go. 1 have not repeated this conversation with College to sny one, cxeeut st tbe "brick Tavern." 1 ealil If College wat lo the crowd he waa compelled to Join them. In regard 10 the gun In CuUege's possession Col. lege ssld thst tome one csme In and took It to whom ho did not know, and returned It to tbe place where lis had been accustomed lo keep It, la lbs coraer of the room In which he Uvea. Tbe cross-examination wa continued on to the middle of the afternoon, eliciting no now facta, but rather tending to refresh the memory of llryan and strengthening the case ot the Gov ernment against College. One point In llryan' testimony is especially worthy of notloe. He testifies and reiterate tho statement that Col lege was so far tn the rear that lie waa unable to hear and see certain Important event that transpired on the morning of the riot. Hut he was not so far In tho rear but that he could hear tho feeble voice of a dying man declaring his In nocence, There are a number of other points of teeming Incoiislatencr which are very much against College, and point him out as having been tn the crowd of rioters ou that bloody Sunday morning aud perhaps directly Impli cated in tne murders. The evtdeme ha been vry strong ever slnco the Inception of the trial that there wa only 0110 gun in the cnlorod party, though many were provided with pistols, ibis gun was owned by College, and neither he nor his fi lends have given any satisfactory explanation of how It got Into the light without College' consent and knowledge, and yet was safely returned after the riot and placed lu the Identical spot from which It had been taken, all without the know-lodge of the owner. When Kelly and (julnn, the two ring leaders, are arrested, as thoy will be before the Court slu again, probably, thoir story will sou lie this point, and College's Innocence or guilt will beWiawn ifjtlioutji doub.t.
