The two ooantios above nsiftod liavo not yet settlod upon terms oi notation of the difficulty between them, so far as to make a Senatorial nomination, ljetters have been ox hanged between the dotoyatos from loach county, with a view to fixing I upon a time and place for the re-aa jmbling oi' tho Sonatoriai Conven tion, but they do not look mach toward an agreement. This matter it» becoming serious, nnd if care and the proper spirit oi' conciliation is not exercised, bicker ings will aiiso that will give UH a j)emocratic Senator in a Republican Histrict. We bog of you, gentlemen, i herei'orc, to settle this matter and ho done with it. The Sonatoi'Hhip if not so big a thing as to warrant any man, or set of men, to hazard har mony to obtain it. Besides, if not ..... nettled decently and well soon, uo matter which man wins tho nomina tion, ten chances to one he will be beaten, in which event be had better a good deal havo been beaten in tho nomination. Fix it up, Republicans of Monroe and Wayne, au4 do it at onoe and do it well. Captain Mai-tain Van Boron Bci nett,of the Kansas Democrat,hm come out for tho new departuro as l'ol lows, to-wit: That tho negro votes is fact that no ono will deny.

That is all ihero is of it, and that is tho lull ox jLj of tho sin of tho now depart uro. Wro ondorso it and say that the living issuos of the day should on ago our attention." Tho conversion of Saul of Tarsus "ii his way to Damascus to persecute ilio Christian Republicans of tho day, iniiy not now Unconsidered a mirac ulous or extraordinary proceeding. All kinds of UBticoa' blanks for •ttlw at Lhil office. Established in 1848. The State Convention of tho M.' E. Church, met at Iowa City Tues day. iThe attendance is vory large, ostimajtod at six hundred delegates. Elder ^ohn H. Power, of Burlington, was mado Chairman, and Rev. E. H. Wiarlng, of Fairfield, temporary Secretary. All Ithe CoDferenoea are wellrrep resented, and by their best men. Dee Moines Methodism is creditably represented by Rovs. Williams, Pom eroy, Wilson, Judge Wright and Dr. Wrigljt. The most noted men from abroa4 are Messrs. Crary, Kynett, and l^uosdoll. The laymen of the church havo fair and able represen tation Thd following wore chosen as per manent officers of tho Convention: President—Hon. ffm. Mills, of Dubujue. Vice Presidents—U. P. Golliday, J. B. llardy, and Rev. Mr. Shorty. Secretaries—E. H. Waring, R. W. Heeler, aud Ii. H. O'Noal. Then followed one of the most im portant and interesting portions oi the convention—the discoBsion of tho quos^bn, "The responsibility of the Christian Citizen to tho Common wealth of Iowa, especially on tho qnestion of temperance," This was ably and strongly dis cussed by Senator Wright and Hon. Hi rat# Prioe. We glean irom tho State Itegister. The Davenport Democrat, editorial ly in its daily issue, of the 11th inst., sayan Tired of tho corruption of the Radical party, feeling that its work iH completed, disgusted with tho ad ministration, the German citiaoiix but bide their time to come over to the new departuro, which is in all it* planks, exactly the platform the Germans themselves have long since 'aid down." Republican Oormans of Iowa, what say you Is this eminent Democratic journal right when it says you are on the "new departure?" We don't want to insult you by in timating that we have any faith in such statements, but it is woll that our German readers may know how theso brazen faced copperhead or gans talk of them. The Democrat in its name issue shies its beaver into the ring with all the rest of the pack ofi^ parly journals, berating Sena ator Harlan. It would seem that flarian is the man above all others in tho Republican party that cop poi heads want to defeat. We ncvor knew the timo since the firing upon tho old flag at Fort Sumptor, that their friends were our friends, but on tho contrary, as almost an inva riable rulo, whom they hate most, have we most reliod upon. The county court of St. Louis, Mo., refuses to soil tho stock of the county in tho North Missouri railroad, and havo resolved, as will bo seen by tho following resolutions adopted by tho court to enjoin tho sale of the road, which isadvortieod to take place in August next: Whorean, The North Missouri rail road is advertised to be sold under a mortgage deed, on account of inter est on socend mortgage bonds, and as it is believed that such salo, ii consummated, will bo null and void, because said second morigage bonds wore issued without tho consont of the stockholders of said road having first been obtained therefore, bo it Ordered, That counsel be employ ed by this court to enjoin tho t-aloof the road as now advertised, and that all legal stops necessary bo takety to protect tho inteiestof tho county as stockholders. Ordered, further, That two mem bors of the court be instructed to make all necessary arrangements to carry out tho above resolution. Head tho telegraphic reports of the riot in New York yesterday on tho occasion of tho parading of the Orangemen. To shed blood is the last remedy to corroct evils, but with tho prejudiced stolid and tyrannical who will tiot permit the ircedom ofspeochand W peace ably assembling as were the Orange men in his case, we can only say because stern necessity requires it, that the mob should have been (as it socmB they were) shot down without stint, it it should havo swept from the face of tho oarth this ontire herd of worthless rubbish that only en cumber and distress society with thoir prosonco. We obsorvo from a Colorado paper that Matilda Fletchor is creating quito a furore in thatdistantterritory. Tho Goorgtowu Miner says: The lecture of Matilda Fletcher on last Friday ovening at the M. E. Church, was attended by a respecta ble and appreciative audience. The subject matter of the discourse "Aro You for Sale, or'-Civil Service Ho form," was discussed in an oloquent and masterly manner, and carried conviction to the mind of every one present that the vast patronage now wielded by tho President of tho Uni ted Slates should be placod in tbo hands of the people, tho sourco oi all powor. Tho rofidents of Territoi ies should insist on a reform in our civil service. Tho pioneers whe discover, settle up and rendor valuable the public domain, are disfranchised and have no voice in tho national coun cils. Our governors, secretaries aud judiciary are appointed at Washing ton, and the yeoplo aro not even consulted. Wo are tailed without our consent and-are powerless to right our vronaa." mm [From the lows Slate Heglstter.] HARLAN AND THE QBSIHANS. I will be romomberod that the Ad dress recently issued to the Gorman Republicans of Iowa, by a committeo appointed by tho Gorman gentlemen in attondanco upon tho late Republi can StatoConvention,in diseussingjtho quostion of our next Senatorial suc cession, went so far as to commit the Germane in tho Republican party as unanimously opposed to tho re-elec tion of Senator Harlan. This ox pression, since the Address has ob tained general circulation, has been emphatically disavowod by a largo number of those in whose name it professed to speak, while many of tho Germans who Are opposed to Mr. Harlan havo not boon'slow in char acterizing the statement as unau thorisbd and injudicious. In circles not German, the avowal oreated sur prise, for thinking men know and can conjuro up no reason why tho Germans, simply as Germans, should be against Mr. Harlan. As citizons of tho Stato in common with all na tionalities and nativos, as members of the Republican party like with native and foreign born, it is to be presumed, and ^the presumption is most reasonable, that they, like oth er men, would judge of candidates as individuals and not as a mass. There is no Germany in America, and, as to citizenship, no Germans in Iowa. The men who wore born in Germany and now livo in Iowa, so far as law and classification in either Stato or party is concerned, aro Americans as much as the men born in Now England. There is no reason for, no excuso to justify them, in preserving a German clan in polities or in anything olso of a public nature. No difference what thoy have been, or where born, they are now Americans and not Ger mans. There is hero no lino separa ting them from other people, there can be uo line. To attempt to draw this lino, is not to recognize the genius of our institutions, and run counter to the purpose and objcct of our Government. These things being true, tho Ger mans, as a mass, not only recognizing their force, but approving thein as wise aud good, emphatically depre cate all attempts at making tiie Ger man citizen or German Republican a different person from any other per son of the same class or affiliation. United on common principles and on moasures of party policy, tho Repub lican who may havo been German born can have no interest, politically, separate from the Republican who is Iowa-born. Believing this, and hon oring it, tho German Republicans have quite generally not only depre cated but disavowed tho expression by which all of them in tho party in this Stato woro announced as opposed to Senator Harlan. Farther than fctuo on© of tboflij^tnjro above reproach. "J. of tho address, Mr. E. A. Stoiniretz of Council Bluffs, publishes a card !n tho Non paricl, in which ho states that the Committee issuing gave no author ity to the gentleman writing the Ad dross to it.sort tho anti-Harlan clause. Wo quote his own words: 1 endorse all tho points made in this call, with tho efceoption of the last one, to-wit: in reference to Sen ator Harlan and 1 do most erophat icall deny that Mr. Harlan's name was mentionod in any way, shape or manner whatever, in that Conven tion. Mr. Theodoro Guelich, of Bur lington, Chairman of tho Committeo, was instructed by tho Committee to issue an address to tho German Re publicans of tho Stato of Iowa, aud certain points woro given to him to embody in this address, and then sign, among other names, mine to this address. This gentleman over stepped his instructions, and used tho name of Senator Harlan without any ono of tho Committeo having given him aut hority to do so and, moreover as I have mentioned here tofore, tho namo of Mr. Harlan was not "brought forward at all in tho Convention or Cotiiniittoo meeting. For thy part, I should not havo en dorsed the action of tho Convention or Committee had a resolution been passod of the nature of tho one ap pearing in tho aforesaid addross When I vote for a man I do not ask to what church ho belongs, nor what is his religion, but what aro his poli tics, and what is his standing in soci ety, and his moral character. Theso aro tho only questions on which 1 satisfy myself, nnd in this regard the character of Mr. T. J. Harlan stands Fran Nebraska. OMAHA, NEBRASKA. July 11, 187 U'. Messrs. Bedrtek Hamilton GRNTLF.MEN: No doubt yofc bwr* had notice of a terrific tornado that visited central Nebraska, July 5th, crossing tho lino of tho U. P. R. R. at ti u'ctock at Lone Tree, and last ing about 20 minutes. Our engineer saw tho storm approaching and en deavored to draw his train out of town. Ho proceeded but a short dis tance when met by tbo tornado then commenced a struggle ior the right, of way electricity, wind, wator and hail, wore the victors the train enmo to a dead stand, and it required all tho powor ol the engine to keep it from being duvou backwards. For a moment wo thougi.t no train would be hu rlod from tho ir vck, as wo felt ono side being lifted, ut in stantly tho wind changed to a direct hoid-wind, and no doubt, that alone saved us from a terrible disaster. There wero several columns of funnel shaped air, or actual water spouts within the line of the storu), (one of which 1 had u full view,) aud whenever they passod thoy swopt everything before them. Housos wero lifted into tho air, and torn all to pieces, stables and hay-stacks woro BCtttterod in all diroction, roofs wero torn off and the frames loll standiug. lu short, every imaginable kind of destruction was the, j-esntt, of ik„ storm. Tho rain camo down In torrents, aud such sized hail I never beloro badaeou. 1 saw lumps of hail which 3m* & •*. ^,4 i 1 have no doubt would have meas ured 9 inches in circumfereaco. A calf was killed by tho hail at Lone Tree. The din made by tho striking of the hail on tho metalic roof of tho car, the sharp crack and hoavy rum bio of tho thundor, mingling with tho roar of the wind, was truly terrific and men told me, who had boon in some of tho great battles of the re bellion, that thoy wero never so frightened boforo in their lives. The train on tho Air Lino R. R., North-east of Fremont, was struck by the tornado, tho coupling at the engine broken and tho coaches lifted from the track in tho air, and thon brought them down on thoir tops with a tromendous crash, wounding sovoroly many of the passengers. Report says soveral persons were killed on tho line of each railroad, but I cannot youjch for the truth of the statement. WC8XIBN. !li*' -tt' Proceedings of Aaditor in Vacation tn Boa4 Matters.

Regiments are stationed at each ferry bouse ready for service if needed. All the liquor stores iu Jersey City ate closed. There is a great deal of ex citemont. but generally quiet roigns. NEW YORK, July 13. It is rumored that the carnage yesterday was moro fearful than re ported. Uundrods wero wounded of whom tho police will never be able to get any account. Thore are ono hundred sbolits out this tiiofning who roport every half hour to the nearest station houso. Everything goes to show that tho laborers aro at work, and that no trouble will bo approhouded tct day. The 11th rai ment left headquarters at 0 o'clock this morning. Unly 1,000 police are on duty before tho building. Gon. Sbalor and staff are still at ^heir posts, where thoy will remain till noon. Everything points to a complete restoration of order. The streets in the vicinity of tho Morguo at Belle vuo Hospital wero this morning crowded with interested and curious people, many of them in quest of friends, but by far a larger portion impelled by curiosity to see the in aimed and bloody bodies at the victims of tho riot. The mother of a boy of sevonteen who was shot as ho was returning from school, came to see his dead body, aud having learned from friends that ho was at tho Morguo, ho was, however, coffined and the lid nailed down and ready for removal, so the official told hor kindly that she would havo lo wait until ho was li.ought home. At that she broke into wild complaints and acocuts broken by emotion, she cried out, '•Oh, wont you let me sec my boy, who never did auy harm to anybody! Oh, wont you let me see him, lot me HLO him, doctor, dear give me ono look at him What will I do at all, at all? 1 was twouty years in Eng land aud this didn't happen," and she then went on in a sort of a half crazed manner, evidently almost drivou out of lior sonses by this sud din blow which deprived hor of her son. Other heart-rending scones oc eUrred duriug the period of identi fication, which will go to make sad the history of the 12th of July, 1871. The number ol corpses in the morguo this altornoon was 2ti, and of these 20 were identified, and pw wmm i?a'\ mits wore given by the Coroner for their roraoval. The other six are still there. 12:45 p. M.— Rumors havo just reached tho polico headquarters that fighting is going on at tho Boulevard. The troops and tho polico wero sent to the scene of tho disturbance. NEW YORK, July 13. Tho deaths of the wounded con tinue, and abont twenty per cent, of those wounded cannot recover. A jury was empannelled and viowed all the bodies but no inquost will bo heid until tho last of the wock or begin ning of the noxt. Tne following is a corroct account of tho killing of a woman and littlo girl, supposed to havo been Mrs. York and hor daughter, as given by an eyo-witnoss: "1 was standing looking at the procession and crowd, and there was a great deal of exoito mont. Directly 1 saw a woman waiving a handkorchiel to tho Orangemen, and I thought she was very imprudent, or had moro cour age than women gonerally havo.— Just at that moment, while sbo was in the act of waiving her handkor cbiof, a buiiy ruffian stepped up to her, and, placing tho muzzle of his pistol to her oar, fired, and BBE fell dead. He then turned around, and deliberately cocking his pistol, fired a bullet into a littlo girl, and sho foil. 1 think the little girl must have been 12 or 13 years old. Of tho wounded brought to Belle vuo Hospital last night four died this morning. All parts of the city havo been quiet to-day, and tho polico do not apprehend any further difficulty or disturbances. The riot yesterday is the chief topic of conversation and tho conduct of the police and military is highly praised by all respectable citizons, while the killing of somo innocent persons by tho tiro of the troops is greatly regretted no blumo is attached to tho latter on account of the occurrence which from tho Dature of the case was perhaps una voidable. The 84th legitncnt had orders to flro before a piece was dis charged. Ono who witnessed the whole affair stated that Capt. Doug lass was knocked down with a brick, and when he recovered ho was dis tinctly heard to give the order to fire, which resulted in a terrible slaughter. His men bad beon hit and stoned along tho route without once retaliating until tho command was given. Then and only then,our informant affirms tho first shot was fired. Immediately tho 60th receiv ed the same direction and tho fusil ado began. Our informant respectful ly asserted that his statement was correct iu every particular, and wholly exonerates the men from tho charge of opening tho fire Oh their own account. Tho action of Gov. Hoffman in issuing tbo proclamation continues to be bitterly denounced among tho Irish, soma of whom assert that ho will ncVef livo td ee* another Orangemen*' procession. No polico men wero killed. Tho report that one was shot dead is incorect. All the wounded policemon aro in fair way of recovery, 'i'h's morning a gang of quarry nun turned out from tho portieus on First Avenuo and sturtod towards tho uppoiopart of the city with tho intention of inducing their brethren to knock off. The latter, had, howovor, seen tho folly of their doings on Wednesday, and refused point blank to fo low tho advico glVon. Tho workmen em ployed upon tho boulevards and parks who loft tho public works yosterday, in dlsoWcdiooee of positive orders are being discharged to-day afcd QefiriaOs and Italians engaged in their stead. A portion of tho 21st regiment and first cavalry have been sent to the scene apprehending disturbances, aid will remain there lor the present. The 6th regiment remaiuson duty, but tho 7th, i2thand4th have been discharged. Tho 7th regiment ar mory is festooned with Orango flags. At the Toomhs this morning a number tho rioters woro examined, each case separately. The first had committed no overt act, and no weapon was found ou hitn. Liu Wa4 discharged, in all cases whero weap ons wero lound on pofson-* thoy were committed. Stephen Manny, one ol tho editors of tho Irish American, appeared in behalf* of l.ho prisoners. He suid that most of these ffien wore ignorant and poor, and that lor the week past they had been iucited by u certain class to create this riot,and when thoy got iuto trouble their leaders deserted them, so under the circumstunces he felt it his uuty to offer his services. Most of the pris oners who were discharged woie severely reprimanded by tlio Justice who cautioned theut not to hereafter listen to their so called leudsrs who evidently cared nothing for them and only used ihom for t'leir own pur poses. Not ono, he said, was present there to-day, but if so many pick pockets had be u arrested tho court would have boon attended by any number of counsel. Eighth Avenuo, at points where the troops fired tlpon the mob, was to-day visited by thousands. Al most evory houso on the east eido of the street from 23d to 27lh street* beat s marks of tho terribio discharge of muskolrv. One bouse had fill the windows shattered and the sashes and blinds riddled b(- bullets and the puvements clotted with blood. But tow people living in tho neighbor hood of the attack were killod. ^lany storo keopers admit that they receiv ed sufficient inlimatioti of the designs of the troops, and hid themselves un til tho strife ceased. They also as soit that the order "shut your win dows was given in a loud ringing tone by mauy officers of tho 9th and 84th regiments, and say that the gen eral obodienco to this command could have saved a groat deal of trouble. The city has been in a state oi great OYcitement all day long and rumors of further rioting have been plenti ful the rumors, however, have prov od false, aud up to this hour, 9 P. M., all is quiet. The scone at Belvieu hospital baf fles description. Some of the cases aro very touching. Joseph Love a young man -1 yoar* of age, who was out and sliotling up 8th Avenue to see tho parade, teceived u shot in bis Ucau. Only y»sU-iduy his young wife and child U-ti Ireland to jom him hero. Perhaps tbo saddest si^ht of ail was tho body of a young girl about sixteen years of ago, who had beon shot through the heart. It is probable that tho child nevor looked so pretty in lifo as sho did in doath. Her faco was in perfect reposo, and a half smilo played around her lips, as if whon the doath shot struck her she had beon laughing at tho excit ing sconos around her. The Tribune will publish to-mor row an account of an interview of its reporter with Mayor Hall to-day, in which tbo lattor assumes the whole responsibility of Kelso's order for bidding tho parado, and defends it. He argues that the event has provod its wisdom. Ho refused to state whether Govornor Hoffman had pre vious knowledge of it, and,looks upon tho Governor's proclamation as simi lar to a reversion of judgment of an inforior court by the court of appeals. Tho Mayor affirms that the Polico Commissioners, Democratic and Re publican, wero in favor of Kelso's order. NBW YORK, Jnly 14. ORANGE PRECAUTIONS. Ono of the Masters of an Orange Lodgo says all the Oranscemen in the procossion carried revolvers un der their coats, on tho parade, but had no occasion to use them, as thoy were protected by the military and police, Moro than half tho members of tho Orango lodges are American citizens. There is nothing in thoir oath or obligation inconsistent vrith their duty as such. THE ACTUAL LOSS, Tho daily papers still differ widely in their lists ot casualtios. Theyos t.imato tho killod from 40 to 65, and tho wounded from 92 to 148. It is beliovod tho actual casualties much exceed those figures, though the full extent of tho loss will never be known. TNE INVESTIGATION. Undoubtedly an effort will be made by tbo Tammany politicians to make cupital out of tho forthcoming inves tigation in some way, but the longer it is deferred the better chance there will bo of arriving at an impartial conclusion, FEELING TOWARD HOFFMAN. The Irish Catholic laborers gener erally aro vehement against Hoff man, and blame him for the slaughter of tho rioters. They swear he ought to be hanged, and declare they will no longer vote the Democratic ticket. To-day, Hoffman could not get twen ty votes from that class. AH these, and the fifty or sixty thousand pro fessional ruffians who form part of our popolation, ate lortd in their de nunciation of the military afld swear vengeance. Tho members of the rogimeets who acted as an escort to the Orangemen are warned not to exposo themselves in dangerous quar ters of the city. TAMMANY has been denounced by tho Union League for its action in the recent troubles. THE INsTlOXTtrtfti Among tho instigators of the riot are named £dwara L. Cary, Post warden, and Charles Farrell, Presi dent of the Hiborntan secret meet ing, which planned tho attack Su perintendent lielso, Oakcy Hull, and John T. Hoffman. Mayor iirtll as suinos all the responsibility of the Kolso order, but declines to tell what part Hoffman had in it. Ho fools suro public opinion, aftor cool refleo tion, will be on his side. QUIET. Everything is quiet now. All business is going on as Usual. Tho citizens see in to havo dismissed tbo subject. Now Yorkers are too much accustomed to oxcitemeut for them to have more than a passing influ ence. THE ORANGEMEN. WMMI What They are—Tka Origin of the OtftsisatMa Tho term Orangemen is one of the unhuppy party designations which contributed ior nearly a century to create and keep alivo religious and political divisions of the worst char acter throughout the British empire, but especially in Ireland. The Or uge organization had its origin in the animosities which had subsisted between Protestants and Catholics in Ireland from the Reformation downwards, but which reached thoir full development after tho Revolu tion ot 1688, and the wholesale con fiscations of Catholics property by which that event was followed. From that timo, the Catholics of Ire land may bo said legally to have lost all social, political, and religious status in Ireland. 8omo attempts which woro mado in the latter part of tho 18th o. to amolierate their condition, excited, especially in the north, the alarm of the Protestant party, who regarded the traditionary Protestant ascendency as endan gered. Acts of vijiehce became of frequent occurence and, as common ly happens, combinations for aggres sivo and defonsivo purposes were formed not alone by tho Protestants, but also by their Catholic antago nists. Tho members oi tho Protest ant associations appear at first to havo been known by tho name of l'eop-of-day Boys," from the time at which their violoncos were com monly perpetrated the Catholics who associated together for self-de fence being called "Defenders." Collisions between armed bodies of those parties beciyne of frequent occurrence. In 1785, a pitched bat tle, attended with much bloodshed, was fought in tho county of Armagh. Tho steps taken to repress theso dis orders were at onco insufficient in themselves to prevent opon violence, and had tho effect of diverting tho current iuto tho still more dangerous chaucel of socrot associations. The rule and illiterate mob of Peep of day Boys made way for tho rich and iu tluontial organization of the Orange society, which, having its first origin in the same obscure district which had so long^been tho scene of agrari anism, by degroes extondod its ramifi cations into every portion or the Brit ish empire, and into every grade of Mocioiy from the hovel to the very stops of the throne. Tho namo ol tho Orango association is taken from that of the Priuoo of Orange, Wil liam 111., and was assumed in honor of that Prince, who, in Ireland, has hoe II popularly indeutified with thr W ttnUibltrbfflcut, of that ProUstant a« .-\f£ our i ft.

ORDtits SOLICITED. condoncy winch it was the object ot the Orange association to sustain. Tho first "Orange Lodgo" was foun dod in the village of Loughgull ounty Armagh, Soptombor 21,1705. Tho immodiato occasion of the crisis was a series ot outrages by which Catholics woro forcibly ejected from thoir bouses and farms, 12 or I I HOUBOS being sometimes, accordin to a disinterested witnoss, wrockof in a single night terminating, Sep tender, 1795, in an engagement, call ed from tbo pit o whoro it occurred, tho Battle of o Diamond. Tht» association which r.cgan among the ignorant peasantry soon worked its way apwards Theg inoral disaffec tion towards K lish rule, which i that time porvr ed Ireland, and it which the Ca' holies, as a natnrr' consequence o' thoir oppressed con dition, largely participated, tending ntich to id ntify in fbo mind nl 1'iotostants tho cause of disloyalty with that of popery and the reb lion of 1768 inseparably combined the religious with tho political antip athies. In November of that year, tho Orange Society had already reachod tho dignity of a Grand Lodgo of Ireland, with a grand master, a grand secretary, and A formal establishment in tho motropc lis and in tho following years, th. organization extended over tb'. ontire provinco of Ulster, and bad its ramifications in all the centres ol Protestantism in the other provinces of Ireland. In 1808, it oxtondod to England. A grand lodgo was found ed at Manchester, from which war rants wero issuod for tho entire king dom. Tbo seat of tho grand lodge was transferred to London in 1821. Tho subject more than once was brought under tho notico of parlia ment especially in 1813 and, in consequonco, tho grand lodgo of Ire land was dissolved but its function* in issuing warrants, &o., were dis charged vicariously through tho English lodge. Tho most momorablj crisiB, however, in tho history of tho Orange Society W.IH the election of A royal dnko (Cumborland) in 1827 as grand master for England and, on tho rc-establishmont of tho Irish grand lodgo in 1828, as imporia' grand master. Tho Catholic llolk i Act of the following year stirred op all the slumboring antipathies ft creed and race, and the Orange as sociation was propagated more vig orously than ever. Emmissariei were sent out for the purpose of organizing lodges, not alone in Wales and Scotland, but also ir* Canada, in tho Mediterranean, and in the other colonies. But thei most formidable part of this zealous, propagandism was its introduction into the army. As early as 1824,' traces of this are discoverable, and' in 1826. No fewer than 32 regiment* wero proved to have received war rants for the same purpose. Tho organization of this strange association was most complete and most extensive. Subjocts to life' central grand lodge, wero threo classes—eounty, district, and private lodges—each of which corresponded, and mado returns and contributions to its own immediate superior, by whom thoy wero transmitted to tho grand lodgo. Each lodge had a master, deputy maslor, secretary, committee and chaplain. Tbe only condition of membership was, that the party should bo Protestant, and 18 years of age. Tho election of members was by ballot, and each lodgo also annually elected its own officers and committee. Tho general govornmont ot tho association was vosted in tho grand lodge, whicl* consisted of all the groat dignitaries, tho grand masters of counties, and the members of another body calle» the grand «xmmitleo. Tho lodge mot twice each year, in May, and on November 5—tho day pregnant witl» associations calculated to keep alivo tho Protestant, antipathies of tho body. A1I tlio dignitaries of tho society,as well as its various com mittees and executive bodies, woi*f-r subject to rc-clcc!ion. In 1835, the association numbered 20 grand lodges, 80 district lodges, 1500 pri vate lodges, and from 200,000 220,000 members. The worst resui of tho Orang« association was the constant incentive which it applied to party an.inosikies aud deeds ot •violenao. In the Nort'i Ireland, tho party displnys and processions were a per petually recurring source of disorder and oven of bloodshed and tho fra ternity which pervaded its member* was a standing obstacle to the ad ministration of Mi tho law. It wan known or believed that an OraDgtr culprit was porfoctly safo in tbo hands of an Orango jury and all eonfidonce in the local admiuistratior. of justice by magistrates was des troyed. These facts, us well as at: allegation which was publicly made of the existence ot a conspiracy t alter tbo succession to the crown ir. tavor of the Duka of Cumberland, led to a protracted parliamentary ir quiry in 1835: and the results of I i & this inquiry, as well as a very shocking outrage perpetrated goon afterward* by an armed body of Orangemen o.' acoount of a prc-ceseioi ii irelar.o, tended somite., -discredit tho as sociation, and u- awaken the public mind the weakness and lei of such .ssociations, tha1 its respoci ability h«s since gradually diminisW d. So great was tho popular dis trust of the administration of justic in party questions, that for seven years tho Lord Chancellor laid dow i a rulo, by which no member of the Orange association w-" admitted to the commission of the p. .ce and al though tho association still subsists, it is comparative!-, without iiifluonco except among the vory lowest classes in tho Northof Ireland. Of the col lomal offshoots of the Orango associ atiou thoso of Canada have at all times been tho most flourishing.— The Canadian Orangemen, bein.j lor tho most, Irish emigrants carried with thorn all tho bitterness of the do mestic feuds with tho Catholic} Outrages directed against tho Call olio Churches, convents and ottae institutions woro not of unfrequei occurrence until recently and o occasion of tho late visit of tl Print. of Wales to Canada, an attempt w u made to force from him a recognition of the associatien, which wasoniv defeated by his own firmness, ao«i hv tho judicious and moderate council ol his adviests,—C/tamf«r J' ifnc'yo/tdi».
