A BOLD RESCUE.

U length, however, a gentleman was nlio is cognizant of the whole affair, kii, though very retloent on the prin .,] f j,,,| U ts, was quite willing to commuDl < ate certain facts w hich would, as he said, '•Thow Mr. Disraeli theoxtent ofthe mistake he had made in refusing lo grant an atn ' The following is his statement t ihv antially :— Although I do not think it would serve am- good purpose to have all I he facta in m> iioiicsMon concerning tills affair published the Herald, and the safety of those who effected the rescue of t hose prisoners de ls that I should lie reticent, I still think there ar» many things ttiat can lie jiven with safety, and that may be of Borne inte. eit, to the public. Of course this news requites confirmation ; but I feel certain it Hue, because I have been looking out for news for some time, and certain things untetion with it carry conviction to my for reasons I am not prepared to men t nr,. Now if you want the names ofthe ho did the work, or any such infor jViUtM Nil'! iW.v. i GUU tl in men nation as that, I tell you frankly you shall r.ot have it, and no newspaper has the htest chance of getting it for the present,, t:u: tin- general features of the affair I am .nit r r-. rred to give you. 'in« Amtrican public must bo aware that t-v-.iai humble membei6 of the late Fenian tao-.eieiit, mostly soldiers of he British , '■ray, nave beeD detained in prison for the «it"ten years, although the leaders have teen long ago released. They were tried by mart martial for mutiny, desertion and n(tier military crimes, and all direct men tion of Fenisnism was scrupulously omitted fiora the Indictments, so that the unfortu nate men might fall in for none of the bene rts of au amnesty to political prisoners. They were not recognized as political prison ers ai all. Fetitions for their release have r '-'-I] nine and again sent to the British gov n iin-nr. thousands of people have attended meetings to advocate amuesty, and every possible effort has teen made to procure their release, but all to no purpose. " Final ly, tired ol waiting aud hopeless of any good coruiug from appeals to England's mercy, some of the prisoners' friends made up their minds to SEE WHAT FORCE COULD DO, lad commenced to organize for a rescue. It now over four years ago since a lady In lids city, who is now dead and who was a ff' voted friend to the prisoners, received a idler from one of them, asking that eomc :uin^ might be done for'them, aud pointing nil'.: ho tact that a rescue was possible. The letter was, of course, smuggled out of the prison.'" From this point a regular corres pondence was started, and after carelul in quiry it was found that the prisoners could all be rescued if money enough could begot 10 defray necessary expenses. How to get mat money without exposing the object was the problem to be solved, and consider le difficulty was experienced in procuring It would be the easiest thing in the \ orld to raise money for such a purpose among the Irish people here- but such an enterprise demands the most absolute ee - cry, and it would ruin the project to con r: le it lo too many people. Finally, after mug delays, a plan of raising the money was hit upon and two years ago the move mtul was definitely started. How the money was raised,who subscribed it or how was applied, I am not prepared to make public just now, but a time will come when can be done, aud the facts will redound more to the credit of the Irish revolution ary party than anything that lias occurred Thousands of men knew "1 the tact that an attempt was to be made, though the details were known to a very limited number—possibly fifteen at the out ride. A great deal had to be risked and many personal sacrifices had to bo mad# by individuals, but finally the thing was got ' shape and over twelve inouttiB ago a vntleinan eminently qualified to carry out tlie enterprise started from here fer Aus 11 alia and commenced operations. It was a peculiarly difficult and delicate task and required a man of unusual ability and tact to perfirm it. The prisoners wore often separated from each other aud scattered amonggangs of convicts through the bush, working at various kinds of employment, aud were liable to be changed at any mo meat to another working party or sent to i de chief convict establishment at Freman It was a very difficult matter to ar range everything so that, a simultaneous da-h might be made all the prisoners aud Imat they might all be safely conducted to 'tie point of embarkation. Fortunately (HERE ARE NO TROOPS IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA, tun. there is a very strong police force, and every colonist is certain of ai irge reward ■or the capture ol an escaped pi isonei. The • scape could only be effected by having a ut'od horse for every man aud supplying tiini with a respectable suit of civilian '■lothee and a good revolver, and as most of •he Fenian prisoners are old cavalry men (tiey could very well take care of tbem srives it once together and well mounted uod armed. The great difficulty would be procuring a ship to take them and in making connection with her, but fortune Hums to have favored the prisoners this time in sending an American ship just at "ie right time, whose captain was wilting 10 take the passengers on board. That portion of the story, of course, can only be told when the escaped men arrive here; but 3 ,j u may rest assured the whole affair was He result of a well contrived plan, for the "fjnt who had charge of the affair is a man *1 extraordinary ability and of infinite re source. Besides that, ail those associated "iih him and under his orders are men of pluck and coolness, who were eeleeted for their peculiar fitness for the work required tl ■ many years. tie. in of them, and they are alt veteran revolu tloniate. Even If Mr. Disraeli had con sented to proclaim an amnesty at the time the Queen was proclaimed Empress of In dia he would have been too late, for I feel certain the work was already done. About the 27lb of April THE CABLE WAS BROKEN. between Java and Australia, and this was taken by those in Die secret as the signal that the work bail been accomplished. This was done to prevent pursuit till the fugitives were beyond the reach of the British authorities. Owing to local cir cumstances, it must take a very long time to discover where a break occurred in the cabin near Australia, and that job was evidently done thoroughly, for I noticed that this is the first item of news that has come by cable from Australia since April 27. Then no-date Is mentioned for the occurence, and the ship has probably half her voyage to the L'uited States performed by this time. This will do more to stimulate Irish revolutionary work and to restore the confi dence of the Irish people In the revolutionary nily than anything that has occurred for very many years. It is the FIRST VICTORY. aud is a great blow to the pre ilige of Eng land. There were only seven men in actual confinement, but there were nine others living in Western Australia on lickets-ol leave. The actual ptisioners were as follows: James Wilson, Fifth Dragoou Guards, tried by court martial in August, 180(1, and sentenced to Imprisonment for life ; lie is a native of county Down, Ireland.

How (Stovepipe Trouser* and a Zinc Petticoat Saved Two Lives—An L'n protected Babe Eaten Up. [From the Pueblo (Col) Ghleftaia, May 27.] The number of rats inhabiting the rocky crevices of Pike's Peak, have recently be formidabi# and dangerous. These animals are known to feed upon a saccha rine gum that percolates through the pores of the rocks, appav-ntly upbeaved by some volcanic action. Since the establishment of the government signal station on the sum mit, of the peak, at an altitude of nearly fifteen thousand feet, these animals have acquired a voracious appetite for raw and uncookoil meat, the scent of which seems to Impart to them a lerocity rivaling the fierce of the starved Siberian wolf. The come a a to to a of at be of ness most singular trait in the character of these animals is that they are never seen in the day time. When the moon pours down her queenly light upon the summit they may be seen in countless numbers trooplDg around mong the rocky boulders that crown the barren waste, and during the warm summer monlhs they may be seen swimming and sporting in the waters of the lake, a short, distance below the Peak, and of a dark cloudy night their trail in the water is mark ed hy"a sparkling light, giving the waters pi the lako a bright.j»tnl silvery appearance. A few days age Mr. John T. O'Keefe, one ol the government operators at the signal sta tion upon the Peak, returned to his post, taking with him upon a pack auimal, a quarter of beef. It being late in the after noon, bis colleague, Mr. Hobbs, immediate ly left with the pack animal for the springs. Soon after dark, while Mr. O'Keefe was en gaged in the office forwarding night dis patches to Denver and Washington, he was startled by n;ioud|*eream from Mrs. O'Keefe, who had retired lor the night to an adjoin ing bedrood, and who came rushing into the office screaming, "The rats! the rats!" Mr. O'Keefe, with great presence of miDd immediately drew around his wife a scroll zinc plating, which prevented the an imals from climbing upon her person, aud, although his own person was almost literal ly covered with them, he succeeded in incasing both of his legs each in a joint of stove-pipe, when he commenced a fierce and desperate struggle for the preservation ol life, being armed with a heavy cane. Hun dreds were destroyed on every side, while they seemed to pour in with increasing numbers from the bed room, the door ol which had been left open. The entire quar ter of beef was eaten in less than five min utes, which seemed to only sharpen their appetites for an attack upon Mr. O'Keefe, whose hands, neck and face were terribly lacerated. In the midst of the warfare, Mrs. O'Keefe managed to reach the office from which she thiew a coil of electric wive over her husband that sprang outward and spread itself over the room, thsn grasping the valve of the battery, she poured all its terrible power upon the wire. In an instant the room was all ablaze with electric light, and hundreds were killed by the shock, when the sudden appearance of daylight, made such by the coruscation of the heavily charged wire, caused them to take (refuge among the crevices and caverns' of the mountain, by way of the bed-room window, through which they had forced their way. But the saddest part of this night's adven ture upon the Peak is the destroying of their infant child which Mra. O'Keefe thought she had mad* secure by a heavy covering of bed clothing. But the rate had found their way te the infant (only two month* old) and left nothing of it but the peeled and naked skull. Drs. Horn and Anderson have just returned to Colorado-sprlngs from the Peake. It was thought at first that the left arm of Sergeant O'Keefe would have to be amputated, but they now believe it can be saved. B Advertisement in a Boston paper:— "A lady in Claremont, N.

[Prom the Brooklyn Times.] A few evenings since while the family of Mr. James Strickland, of Lorlmer street, in this city, were entertaining a company of friends at their house, a woman passed the door and gave one of the sons a letter di rected to the lady of the house. Ou opening the letter, they were greatly surprised to find it contained three pawn tickets, and still further surprised that they had been robbed and knew nothing of it up to this time. It appears that, some weeks ago before this, a woman of decent appearance called at the house for alms, but as she only saw one of the children, she received nothing and the following letter written by this woman tells the remainder of the story. The fol lowing is a copy : "To the Lady : I was at your door for assistance about two weeks ago and asked you to assist me and you refused me. So I your window up down stairs, and I climbed in on the cellar door. And I took out of yeur trunks some coats: and if you want your coats, here are the tickets for them. The name I gave for the coats was Williams, 217 Ainshe etreet. And the name I gave for the box of furs, wvs Howe, 201 8ixth street. I was going to destroy the tickets—but by paying what I got yon can have them, do not never refuse anybody when they come to your door again. I came back the second time for more but you had closed the house all up. look out after this and keep your house locked up i Of course the letter was without a signa ture. Upon presenting the tickets to a bro ker, the goods were all recovered after the pa vmeut of the money advanced upon them. the advice of the Utter, although good enough in itself, i6 certainly a marvel of im pudence coming from such a source. But the indignation of the family was somewhat lessened by the plea of necessity; and by the 6park of remaining honor that evidently prompted the return of the tickets after the woman had procured all the value she could out of the tioosactiou. gg saw 8o 8o be on FINANCIAL.
