The Only Way Out ot the Irish Question. London, March 2.—Tho Conservative movement with the object of forcing the Government to deal with Ireland imme diately, is assuming a critical phase. A number of Liberal Unionists and Con servatives, that is about 150 Government supporters, intimated to the whips their willingness to assist in finishing the closure debate, curtailing discussions on supply by protracted sittings continu ing all night, if necessary. A Cabinet council convoked for to day waa postponed by Lord Salis bury an hour before the time fixed for the meeting, in order to enable him to have separate consultations with the Ministers to try to reconciliate their differences on the extent to which coer cion shall be carried on in Ireland. The Cabinet meeting will be held to-morrow. Viscount Lymington has written a letter which reflected the feeing of the Liberal Unionists, protesting that the Govern ment's want of action, nerve and courage ia paralyzing their treatment of the Irish question aud taking day by day all heart and principle out of the Unionist cause. He declares that the vast ma jority of Liberal Unionists are ready to accord the Government whatever strong measures may be necessary, but that it ia insufferable from any po'nt of view of the Irish Nationalists that a Loyalist Government should be per mitted to exist which, while refusing Ireland the power to govern itself, refuses to govern Ireland. After denouncing the half-hearted petifogging mea-ures, the prostitution of constitu tional forms, (such ns jury packing and the policy of tumbling lawyers and con fused officials.) he concludes: "An irresolute government is impossible; the only alternative is Home Kule." farther fears ol subterranean .

New York, March 2.—A special from Halifax says the address of the Newfoundland Legislature to the Impe rial Government has produced a sensa tion. If it is not a declaration of inde pendence it ia the next thing to it. Newfoundland tells the Imperial Govern ment that they own their fisheries and they do not purpoae to pay the slightest ( heed to French or American iutereata or to brook any interference from the Imperial Government. The situation is so serious that both Premier Thornbush and Sir Ambrose Shen, leader of tbe opposition, have gone to London to rep resent the dangerous character of the prevailing feeling in Newfoundland. Meanwhile the press and people are univeisally discussing the benefits of annexation to the United States. Any thing would bo better than tho present state of affairs, and if annexation were submitted to a popular vote it would be carried by a tbree-fourtba majority, London, March 2.—The Colonial Secretary has sent a dispatch to the Governor of Newfoundland informing him tbat the Home Government does not feel justified in disregarding the strong protests of France against re strictions at this lata period which are calculated to inflict great loss upou French fishermen, and is, therefore, un able to allow the bill pined by the Newfoundland Legislature in relation to fisheries, to operate this season.

A short notice appeared in yesterday's Herald announcing the sudden death of H. Finney. We have known him for years, and, iv the way of business were brought in intimate intercouse with him. We are ready to concede that within a few years past he became ad dicted to a habit that has suddenly abrupted from earth the brightest intel lect of the present and past ages. But we do declare tbat in no stage of these deleterious influences was he ever guilty of unseemly or nngentlemanly conduct. He was ever courteous and scrupulously polite in his intercourse with his fellows. Mr. Finney was of a most excellent English family and possessed of a highly cultivated mind. He had mauy sincere and devoted friends in this community whom he had secured by his obligiug manners and intelligent conversation. They regret hia sudden death, so far away from his relatives. He was clean, he was honest, he was jmt, he was morally pure. A kinder heart never beat. " No further seek his merits to disclose, Nor draw his frailties from their dread abode, There they a'ike in conscious trust repose, The boaom ol his Father and hia God."

Associated Press Dispatches to the ITerald Denver Col., March 2.—lt appears that the killing at Coronado, Kan., on Monday, over the county seat, did not occur in Wallace county as first reported. A tel. gram from Wallace to the Asso ciated Press this afternoon, says: On Sunday last a bloody affray took place at Coronado, Wichita oounty. It grew oot of the county seat trouble existing there. On that day seven men, Charles Coulter, Bill Rayues, Frank Jenness, George Wet kins, Emmett Durang, A. N. Borey and one Johnson, left Leoti and went to Coronado, some of them to have some fun and others to see it. Three of them were armed. They took beer with them and' arriving there prooeeded to drink with some of the Coronado boys. They soon quarreled, and Coulter and one Loomis drew their revolvers and began shooting. Tbis was the signal for war to begin, and the Coronado men opened on the Leoti crowd from windows and secluded places. Coulter, Raynes and Loomis fell, tbe first two dead and the last one with a leg and an arm broken. The Coronado fellows then turned on the other Leoti men, who had got into tbeir buggy and were fleeing for their lives. Winchesters were used freely, and three Loti men were shot out ol the buggy. The team was wounded and ran away to Leoti, and only two of the men got in with it. The others were picked np and taken to town. Watkins died yesterday. Borey, Johnson and Loomis are expected t* die. Both towns are surrounded with guards and no one is allowed to enter who is not well known. Both places ate fully armed and pro vided with ammunition.

She stated that she had 8850 in coin in a satchel, aud, desiring to hide it, placed it on a high shelf in a closet of her house, on Main street. Yesterday after noon she went out, leaving her two little girls in the room alone for quite a time. During her absence the wash- Chinaman went theie for the clothes, which the little girls gave him in the room where the closet waa situated. While the Chinaman was there the girls had occasion to leave tbe room and upon re turning said they saw the washman at the open closet door with hia hand mov ing in the direction < f the shelf and returning to the bosom of his blouse. They did not tell this to Mrs. Abbott nutil after she had found out her loss. When Mrs. Abbott returned home she did not go to tbe closet, but late in the evening her son asked her for some of his money which he had given his mother for safe-keeping. She then went to the closet and found the money was missing. She questioned the girls and tbey told about the washman. Mrs. Abbott and ber son then went to tbe Chinaman's house, but were refused admittance, and sh-rily after midnight she applied to the Police department for aid in the premises. They had no authority to make the ar rest, and Mrs. Abbott went to Justice Austin's house and swore out a warrant. Personal Mention. THE SMALLPOX. A Few more Cases of tho Disease Developed.

Wade, Chapman, Van Dyke, Fitzgerald and Smith were appointed ss a committee to prepare suitable resolutions expressing thu regret of the bar at the retirement of Judge Brunson. This committee is to report the resolutions on next Monday. W.*P. Gardiner, E-q., was u-nnimously de clared the choice of the meeting as the successor of Judgo Brunson.

Gladstone's Opinion. | London, March 2.—Gladstone writes to the editor of the Baptist: "I consider there is no opportunity yet for the dis establishment of the Welch Church. No great political matter can be dealt with till the Irish difficult is settled. Au attempt by force at the po<tpone ment of the Irish question would only increase the confusion and pressure. The main reason why the Irish question is so troublesome, obtrusive and pro voking is becanse it involves the social order of that oountry. Social questions push their olaims for precedence over others." Corouer Meredith yesterday went to Santa Ana in answer to a telegram which informed him that a corpse had | been found in that vicinity. KO. 132. FRONTIER LIFE. ROBBED. A Bar Meeting.
