OUR IRIB LETTER.
DUBLIN, May 11th, 1875.
The struggle over the Coercion Code for Ire
land was to have been brought to a conclusion
to-day. After a nine days' battle the bill
emerged on Thursday night last from commit
tee--all the Home Rule amendments having
been exhausted. Yesterday, the bill was "re
ported," but not till after another tough fight,
In the course of which the Home Rule members
moved several new amendments, though un
f sseoesfully. The Government, at the dieta
r tion of its small band of Irish supporters-the
15 or 16 Ulster 'ries who have seats in the
House-withdrew one of their most important
concessions in the direction of iberty; where
upon they came in for an unmerciful whacking
at the hands of the Home Rule members, who,
however, could of oouraedo nothing but ex
pose their treachery, deceit, ani4lnonsisteney.
SA eneational incident occurred In consequence
of a remark made by Mr. Downing, member
for Cork county, on Thursday night to the
efect that, at the close of the contest in com"
mittee, be could not but thank the House and
the Government for the codrtesoy nd consid
eration with which the Iriseh party had bAen
treated. Mr. Roo ne.and other Irish Nation
alists on the m u mj repudiated Mr. Down
Sing's lanagq (Vu)ihei been, by tb& w'ay,
used by Mr, Batt ii94.d one br two days
Sof rWaIerford,
qguirlng to knowan what s au
buadd to speak fr the Irish memab Wel
r esterday the incident was broalg ltip i the
ddeate, the result being that Mr. D6twliog'l"e
plained away hiseassertion and got wh
hammered by several Irish members who
boldly asserted that though they had been
treted wit4 courtesy, they had received do
consideration' whatever. Belieh I eland, the
efeet of the whole ffsir bas been ggeatl~ Io
lower pOpular esteem for Mr. Bupt and )Mr.
Downing; the forkLer of whom, it is dbnsidered,
g qitt too prone t9 attempt the task, of
placating dud conciliating the House of Coclk
mons instead of denonincing its coeduct dd !
obstructing its boeiness. But to return to the
Coercion Bill itself. To-day 'it was to bhe
been read a third time and then sent up to the I
Lords. The Lords, of course, will pass it with
the ntmost possible haste; and farewell for I
five years more to even the slightest vestige of ;
liberty in Ireland. And yet Ireland is .1
mittedly the most peaceful and orderly country I
in Europe I As I amen Parliamentary matters,
I may mention that the whole English and
Itlsh press (with two expeptiqps) onqfes now,
that Mr.'Disraelr in thq matter of tt1e relations
betkeen. Parliamept and the Prqps, has been
unterly overthrowh by Mr. A.'M. Sullivan. He
invtted humiliat!in at the lnds of the mem

received it, and deferved it! dud the Iojry t

Toe f'rades Societies in the various provin

that Dablin never will have witnessed psuh a 'b

Scould be no more flaprant example of a disre
Sgard for Irish wishse by the House of Com
i moas. Irelaml is practically unanimous on
the question of Sunday closing-has declared,
g indeed, for that measure in a singularly em
phatic manner; yet she cannot have the boon
because the English publicans and the Irish
publieans do not like it. It is true that the
bchief speakers against the bill on Sunday were
Irish Home Rulers; but the reason they op
. posed it is that they are representatives of
e urban conslituencies where the publican ele
ct ment isvery strong. The work of the temper
. ance reformers, notwithstanding all this, still
g continues. Last Thursday there was a mag
, nificent temperance demonstration ft Kilrush,
the Capital of West Clare; and it may be
. noted here that that very district, since it
o became the theatre of a temperance props
ganda, has been amongst the most peaceable
i and orderly districts in all Ireland.

) VWhether order continabs to reign among
re the haberdasbers of Warsaw, Ky., since
e- thirty-one of its matrons and dasmels, in
n- convention assembled, with preliminary
,, whereases duly resolved to purchase no
, dry goods exceeding in cost twenty-ive,
I cents per yard during the space of one calen
dar year, we are not informed, but the said
in matrons and dasmels did so assemble and
ih resolve, and are now on their probation. Bit
is ter constraint and sad occasion drear must'
re have impelled the ladies of Warsaw to this
harsh extremity; but whatever the cause
of it is not possible to regard their resolution
with other sentiment, than those of appro
C- bation and respect. They were doubtless
r- moved to do penance in calice&r previous
ill prodigality in moire-antique an gros-grain,
w which textures of price, folded unusedin re
, pentant wardrobes, cast a gleam of mock
ery upon the povqrty which, since they were
purchased (or partly because they were
it purchased), has everspread the land. For
a- some years preceding the panic our im
le ports exceeded our exports by about $100,
000,000 per annum, and this mainly because
the ladies of the land burned to outshine
one another in braveriesofapparel. Their
ee lords were not the .men to say them nay
c- while the bills for the same could be put
al off. We sent all our surplus wheat and
cotton and silver and gold to pay in part
for these braveries, bdt even then, the
monstrous bill was not altogether footed.

THATCHED HOUSE.
(From the "Month."I
It wad a clean, bright, wholesome, thor
I oughly lovable house. The first time I saw It,
I fell in love with it, and wanted to live In is
- at once. It fasoinated me. When I broeed
its threhold, I fel as If I had epend a book
Swhbose perusal promledanehbanmeal, I felt a
a passionate longing to have been born hereo, to
JPave been expected by the brown old watbchfl
walls for years before it had been my tarn to
exist 1l the world. I felt despolled of my
rights; because there was here a, hoard of
wealth which I might not touch, plaeod Just
a beyond the reach of my hand. I was tLtal.
a Ised; because the secrete of a sweetly odoroue
Spast hung about the shady corners, and the
sunny window-frames, and the grotesque
hearth-places; and their breath was no more
ome than the scent of dried rose leaves.
It was my fault that we bought the Thatched
Honuse. We wanted a country home; and,
hearing that this was for sale, we drove many
Ales one showery April morninog to view the
place, and jaudge if it might suit our need.
Aunt Featherstone objected to it from the first,
