Kickham and Mr. Brophy- had got their % discharge. The news has not been con firmed. In respect to the latter prisoner, whose name is given as Edward Brophy, there is a misconception. Hugh Francis Brophy was the gentleman who was arrest ed at Fairfield House, Sandymount, Dub lin, along with Mr. Stephens and others. He has a year ago been sent out to Western Australia with other Fenian prisoners, and we have lately published a letter from him in these columns. Mr. Kickham, if we . mistake not, is still in Working Prison. I A correspondent writing frotm Howth as i to the Fisheries says:-I am happy.to state that, not for many years has this harbor presented such brilliant prospects in refer- I ence to fishing as this year, both for qual ity and quantity. The shots on Tuesday 4 night were surprising, receiving from five maize up to 140, and the prices from 13s. 6d. up to a pound-quality first class. The fish curing is also progressing rapidly. Mr. Netheun, the great curer from Leith, is giving that branch of the trade his sup port, and at piesent numbers of poor wo men are finding profitable employment at this work. The scene this day here was truly splendid; the ocean from Howth to Lombay was dotted with 500 fishing boats, within two or three miles of the harbor.

Still, with all their faults, thie old landocracy had a dash of niobility and greatness about them that made them respected by the cople, nay, sometimes loved.

A parochial w house, within a few yards of the church 1 has, owing to the ezertions of the parish I priest, just been commenced, for which a sum of £300 is required. The Rev. John i Q'Leary, P.

He was standing in his ear, as sisting to raso a sack of corn, when he fell backwards upon his head on the ground. Having been removed to the Count31 Infirm ary, he died at three o'clock. It appears that one of the arteries of the head was in jured, owing to a fracture of tre skull, sand that an effusi6n of blood from the injured blood-vessel upon the brain caused death.

Dease, who has for seven years ers and four goblets-massive silver beau tifully chased. press. The proeeedings have not elevated thea very much, judging from the comments elicited. The London tietrday Review gives expression to its sentiments in the following manner: " If we could trust our newspapers of late, it would seem as if the priesthood were once more coning to the world's front. Never was so much heard of the British Parson-of his in dustry, his indolence, hi rituaistic extrava gances, his pulpit cowardice, his domestic diffi culties, his political bigotry-as we have heard in the present vacation. Why he preaches and what he preaches, is a question that has tided the Tiaes over the silly season; Dublin has been gratified by the sittings of a Clerical Con gress, and the best known of our contemporary novelists sets the world weeping over the woes of the Curate of Rogglestock. At first eight it would seem as if an age of modern Hilde brands was approaching-ae if mornings were about to dawn in which the Record would sl scrsede theJhpiter at our breakfast tables-as if Parliament were going to adjourn to the Je rusralem Chamber or Exeter Hall. We are cfltid, however, that the fatots actually point ina versy dilernt direction. The world takes .all this interest in the Pprsn simply because the Parson is passing aw-ay. That graceful embodiment of the odbest of compromises, that cheerful representative of the queerest of ano mnlies, that peculiar compound of the farmer, the vestryman ad the Aolmstle, that one inhoa hitaint of the border land between the temporal anof the Curiritel, the hat-if we may venture to employ the apologue-of the moral world, domestic i his night-cap and diviine in his sur plice, at onuc father of his people and father of his fatmily linking earth to heaven with a sub limely British ulconsciousnese, will be seenvno more.

Tranquty being restored in Florence,- d he came b~ck to that city, then the empo riam-of he fneoarts, where he continued his application to painting and sculpture with unwearied diligence. Pope Julius II. employed him to lavish all his skill on the sculptural embellishment of his tomb. Af ter cmpleting t his structure, he was reluc tatly obliged to commence adly ning the walls of the Sistine Chapel, and of the cham- 3 bers of the Vatican, with fresco paintings, which, lefthout a finu his efforts in that branch of the art, are its glory and pride. It f is said that Raphael, growing envious, in stcgated the Pope to assign this task to An gelo, as he dreaded his rising celebrity, and hoped that his failure in fresco puinting, with which he was very little acquainted, would cast him into the shade of obscurity and neglect. - But his envy only gave new plmage to the pinions o f his rival's fame, and serve sted to light a omlendid torch in the sublimity of his genidgus, whosediscriminat ing blaze convinced th Rthen critic that, in originality of conception and grandeur withof dign, Angelo bore away the palm of perfection from his competitor, Raphael.

His daring blimtye dreaded his rising cene of con ception were too gigantic tfreso be boringe by withe still elements of tamlenes and minute ' littleness.

His genius formed, indeed, a new epoch in the hYetory of the art; for his mighty e designs, grasping, as it were, in their eagle - talons, time, space, natural and supernatu ral agency, roused the emulation of Raphael from its inglorious slumber on the proto Stypes of Pietro Perugino.
