IIekb is a good example: Tbe several Irish societies hero have Cecided not to have a parade St. Patrick's o'ay, but instead will contributa to the Irish relief fund an amount equal to the cost of getting np a procession, and oUo that realized from entertainments. A dispatch from San Francisco reports simi lar resolution adoptpd there. The New York Ilerald publishes and ia dot-ies a ausi?e!tion of Mr. Dion Boucicault, that irirv theater and music-hall in the United States should devote St. Patrick's day to performances in aid of the JleraWa Irish relief fund. A large sum could be collected Lv this means, and the well-known generosity ti.a theatrical Drofcsaion would make a host of i?alous co-oprators. What do the managers of Leubrie's Theater say to that? A correspondent of the London Staif tlard, rovelicir in Ireland, narrates an inci dent which spcaki volumes for the hesitancy of the Irish poor to obtrude their misery: "A starving woman jn Galway, after a fnrtive glance around to see that none who knew her wero iu sight, told the correspondent that neither ho nor her children had eaten food ' for a day and a half, and she apologetically explained that she only ntsked for help as his honor was a stranger."

Mr. Dunn advocated the passage or tne mil. Mr. M'Mahon represented the Importance of tbe government's keepitig enough of the property as a sanitarium ior us invaiia soiuiera. Mr.Conesr objected to tbe bill as giving away, ior a mere pittance, to squatters, without a particle ot legal right, property which, if put up at auction, could be sold at from fifteen to twenty thousand dollars an acre. Mr. Reed called attention to the fact that the gov ernment, which was only to receive twenty thousand dollars for tbese lands, was responsible tor con oemned buildings to tbe amouutof seventy-four thousand dollars. He thought there must be some mistake In tne matter. Mr. Dunn replied tnat tne government naa aaopiea the extroardlnary proceedure ot seizing the city ot Hot Springs by foroe, and It was not the fault of the people, and tbey should not be made to pay for a blunder or error of tbe government. Mr. White remarked tnat tne 0111 completely changed the reports of the commissioners, and that lis nractleal effect would be to give tbe government twenty thousand dollars for this property, Instead of three or four hundred thousand dollars. He was not willing to vote mints bill wlih such a summary discussion. He thought tbe bill would keep, and therefore moved an adjournment. Adjourned. WOMAN'S YVOKK.
