33w ORLEAWl. aUN<. JLAW7*ARY iS 17'9. MR. O'CONNOR POWER AND MR. BUTT. The following letter appears in the Dub lin Nation of December "21 t : To the executive of the fHtoo R1'e Confederation. London. Gentleman :--I beg to return you my best thanks for the resolution which you have been pleased to passe in reference to my recent letter on Mr. Batt and my speech in the House of Commons on the I opening night of the sesion. I have now to request your permission i to make through you a public statement of i the reasons which induced me to write of r Mr. Butt in the terms which I employed in c the letter to which your resolution refers. I Since the night on which Mr. Butt rose a in the House of Commons, and "in the I name of the Irish nation" denounced Mr. t Parnell and Mr. Biggar for daring to do c that which was to them a matter of plain a and simple duty, I have felt that it was t incumbent upon me, as a member of the a Irish party, to observe closely the danger- t ous course of the policy upon which it b appeared to me be had then entered. and, d ..accoldinoly, I have watched Mr. Batt's conduct for a long time with distrust and t alarm, with pain and humiliation* I On the occasion to which I refer two of a the most faithful members of the Irish par t ty were denounced in the face of a hostile r assembly, and handed over to the fury of I. their enemies, by the very man whose po 13 aition required of him that, instead of de- o nouncing them, lie should have acted the h part of their champion and defender. At " that time I wrote a public letter question- n ing Mr. Butt's right to act thus "in the B name of the Irish nation;" and I had after- ti wards ample proof that the Irish nation S repudiated any such authority in Mr. Bott, b and condemned his conduct even though tl regarding it as that offan individual mew- ti ber of the Irish party. All the recognized I. organs of national opinion in Ireland ex- B pressed that condemnation, but this did ti not prevent him from seizing the very next nu opportunity to subject those gentlemen to a another denunciation , in which he declar- a ed, of course amidst the applause of the p alien Parliament, that Irish politics as un- 0 derstood by the active section of the Irish members were nothing better than an E "Irish brawl." P When it became necessary last winter re to summon the friends of Home Rule to a a' National Con' 'rence, this so called leader P threw every obstacle in the way. The E "onference was held, however, in spite of L him, and he and the whole parliamentary V party were publicly bound over to a policy o0 of energetic action. He solemnly pledged d himself to energetic action, and as solemn- ci ly promised to consult the party on all t important questions so as to secure unity. fc !iut hod' did he fullil these obligations? et lie never appeared in his place in I'arlia- of iuent during the fol!owing session, until II the Intermediate Education 1hll was intro- It duce-d, when het cnime over to appropriate ' t!e credit of thlier mero's labors. This was the extent of lii: energy. What did hbe a do to secure nuity I lie was literally IS bound to consult with his colleagues o1 a "imperial qu;estionc rof importance.." but i when the tinal ssuc. upon the 1-isteri d question arose, he was one of the lith to sound the note of discord ln a speech which i1 would have b i-n mowl a,tropriate in the i mouth ofaCastlerengh than in that of aman r supposed torepresent a country struggling 1 for national indelea dence. Thus did he c ..how how nmuci iith e-timated the unitr of P .ie Irih party. And thiis is the man who. S nrites a series of lett-rs containing much L perverted history of the past and many d eluscive dreams of the future, but carefully avoiding the practical work of the present, I and all for one object-viz., to fasten a charge of dissension on those who refuse to sanction every recent folly of I is incon - sistent Parliamentary career. it cannot be forgotten that the resolu tions calculated to promote union have 1 always emanated from the active section ,lf the party, the section whose successful I 'sctivity has excited the jealousy and wounded the vanity of Mr. Butt. Of this I character was the resolution which I mov ed at the National Conoeronce last Janua ry, by which the council of the League was bound to convene an annoal confer snce. This resolution commended itself to the unanimous approval of the gentlemen assembled from all parts of the country. It was passed amid great enthusiasm in presence of Mr. Butt without a dissentient voice, and everyone seemed to feel that by providing means for an annual review of Home Rule operations it would prove a remedy for the evils arising from apathy or dissension. This, however, did not suit the honorable and learned member for Limerick. He did not want to have the light of an annual conference thrown upon his operations. He would render the res olution null and void at all hazards. Ac cordingly when it was proposed in the council of the Home Rale League that the annual conference should be held, Mr. Butt strenuously opposed the proposition. liHe had its consideration adjourned to a more convenient time for his purpose-the :11 of last September-when the aseembled connoil numbered exactly five persons- Mr. Butt and four others of no particular weight, as far as I know; but perhaps it would be only fair to give their names. They were Mr. Philip Callan, M.P., Mr. Maurice Brooks, M.P., Dr. O'Leary, M P., and Mr. R. B. Butt. The decision of the National Conference was set aside on the motion of Mr. Bott, M.P., who proposed that the Council could make no ar rangements for the holding of the Confer ence. After this it appeared to not a few influential members of the Home Rule League that further effort looking to co operation with Mr. Bntt would be futile; et one more attempt was made to assem ble t friends of Home Rule, and a requi eition was signed by thirty-six .members of the League, including the namesof gen tlemen who are known throughout the country for their life-long devotion to the national causem requesting the honorable eecretaries to convene a spelcial meeting of the League. Although this document was drawn up in strict accordance with the rule regulating suach meeting, the bon orable and learned member for Limerick had his legal doubts about it. He would, be said, advise the honorable secretariss not to act upon it; but, having in view the weight and importance of the requisi ton, he would consent to have the meet ing called by the council, but not on the day fied by the requisitionists, and then three weeks notice at least should be given of the reeolations which the requisitionists intended to propose. All this obstruetion on the part of Mr. Butt was patiently submitted to, and the League meeting was fixed for the 10;b; but the member for Limerick and his friends rejo!ced when the unexpected ses sion of Parliame,'t gave them another excueo for obstructing the national work and preventing discussion, and through their exertions the meeting of the Losgre has been,: indefinitely postponed. May I not ask, after all this, who is the real author of the "policy of obstruction?" -who of the "policy of dissensiont"-who of the "policy of exasperation V'-who. in fnlag, is it that has "brought confusion into the counsels of the nation ?" Is it not the very man who has levelled these phrases at the heads of others, in whose work be never bad the spirit to share, but the fruits of which he does not scruple to claim as his own-Isaac Butt, member for Limerick and quondam leader of the Irish party T it is now plain that his aim is to obstruct the national work, to divide the national counsels, to exasperate the national party, and to bring confusion into the counsels of the only nation which Irishmen recognise as theirs-the Irish nation-which neither the apostacy of worthless leaders nor the brute force of England can conquer or sub due. The letter to Dr. Ward, M.P.. marks the turning point in Mr. Batt's career as a I Home Rule leader. If Ireland could be t appreciably influenced by the author of that production the resent generarinn might abandon all hope of achievivg legis lative independence, for in tha' letter Mr. I Butt publicly surrendered the nationality of his own country. He proclaims that I her nationality has been absorbed In the "United Kingdom," and calls upon Irish members to stand tamely by while the a Louse of Commonus approv..s a gross vin'a tion of the territory of an I:ldt peil,- -nt State, and the Irish members are thus to I betray their own principles lest otherwise c their action should bring confusion iuto e the counsels of the nation. Here are no longer two kingdoms, Ireland and Great Britain, but one united kingdom bound by t the holy (?) compact or 18It There are t no longer three nations-Ireland, En gland I and Scotland-but one nation undivided c and indivisible forever, thanks to the im- ! perial policy and the patient marceavres t of our modern Castlereagh. 5 I read this document which was sent to Dr. Ward two weeks ago (nominally for I presentation to the Home Rule Party, but s really for circulation in the English press, i as proved by the fact that while it has been p published in the Times and scores of other i English papers no meeting of the Home I Hule party has up to this hour been con- a vened to consider it) with a burning sense t of shame and indignation, but waited for in days to see if it would not elicit merited a condemnation from the more trusted and f honored members of the Irish party. Alas a for the decadence of public spirit! I wait- in ed in vain, and when, on the opening day I of the trssion, I 'unteied the meeting of o Irish in-mtbere in KR.g etreer, and s ow p leas than a dozen men out of a (party corn- I posed vif sixty-:hle reIpresentatives of a c satrnn--uet infornially, and as it were by a acid nfit, no theeve of the greatesst Parli ii nutntar in uggle within living memo'ry, ,ad at a Vii t crisis in the allttsi of Eng- c land, withi no policy representing the a .datllsn- i;nntiratlons of Ireland and no t thing t.i s.ow to the world that she still a toiiie all the moral attributes of a distinct J nationality and an unconquered nation, I q resolved liat, no matter at what personal f .i-k to nr3sell, no matter what amount of a censure and odinm I might incur, I would publicly denounce the man who was re- I spousible for the unepeakable disgrace and a humiliation of my country. Some who hold that Mr Butt's action is inexcusable a have expressed a similar opinion of the a language in which I condemned it, though they seem to forget the violence with which the member for Limerick denounced i his active colleagues, ard, labored to hold t them up to the scorn, ri-icu e and contempt I of tiu Itouse ol Comwn ii Whatever may I be titught of my lan,;uge, there is no doubt among nine tenths of the Irish peo ple that the several acts of Mr. Butt which I have recited amount to a betrayal of the Irish cause. Though looking at the earlier of these acts with all the just indignation which they excited, I yet entertained the hope that they might be charitably set down to errors of judgment, and to that hope I clang until the appearance of the famona letter to Dr. Ward, which blasted every hope and confirmed every suspicion. After this I considered that, with my feel ings and opinions as an Irish Nationalist, submission to Mr. Butt would be treason to the country and silence an unpardonable crime. I wish that I could stop here and leave the settlement of the issues raised by Mr. Butt entirely in other hands, but I am bound to point out that he has given abundant evidence that there is no step which he is not prepared to take with tie object of thwarting the national wiil and blighting the fruit of every heav~ -.sent opportunity. lie is sh,,ve all things a constitutional lawyer, aiid he claims to be a constitutional pt rio:, but in his zeal to put down Irish activity in Parliament o tramples upon couestitutional law as ruth lesly as he would, if the Irish people per mitted, upon the active members of the Irish par'y. Let anyone who knows anything about C:oentitutional law read the follow log ,passage in Mr. Butt's third letter to the electors of Limerick. He says: "I must leave it to every man's conscience to say how far lie would be justified in obtaining the power of sharing in the proceedings of the House of Commons by taking the oath of allegiance to the Queen, and then using that power to ba.Re all her measures, confute all her counsels, anrd disrupt the citadel of hcr por-er." The italics are mine. Now, it is distinctly laid down by the highest constitutiob authorities that the Queen has no measures in Parliament, and not a single tittle of responsibility rests upon her for measures announced in the speech from the throne. It is a fixed prin ciple of constitutional law that the meas· nres which the sovereign orders to be laid before Parliament are not her measures, but the measunres of her Minisaters for which they alone are responsible. The doctrine that resistance to the Minister means re bellion against the Crown, is the most out rageously unconstitutional that ever was uttered. If Mr. Batt had spoken thus in the House of Commons he would have been promptly called to order, and I am forced to ask what does this language, coming whence it does, really mean Y It means that Mr. Butt will use every means in his power, constitutionul or onconstitutional, to put down his own countrymen un:osn they quietly soubumit to the yoke of toe Minister. It may mean agood deal more ""qF~r~r'i i;'' /'"~~l·jdi La"' /' ':,-*;'e '"''.'*.='w:- than this. Parliament consists of the Crown, House of Peers (the lords Spiritual and Temporal), and [the House of Com mons, and it has been the constant aim of Lord Beacoosfield in recent years to eo large the powers and prerogatives of the Crown at the expense of the other constito teat parts of Parllsm-nt. Has a subordinate part of the unconstltutional work been as signed to Mr. Butt in that sunbordinate and most uncoenstitutionally governed country -Ireland ? If so, I fear the assistant has far onuttepped the Instructions of his mas ter. He should have been content to de stroy our privileges one by one and drag us down by slow and easy stages to the last extremity of servitude; but this sud den demand for a complete surrender of our rights fails to dazzle by its audacity, and I tell Mr. Butt and the Ministep that if a similar doctrine be announced LiO the House of Commons I shall repudiate-it., and if a similar demand be made there I I shall answer it with defiance. Has it come to this that our scanty constitutional rights-which poor as they are, it cost centuries of heroic effort and sacrifice to win--shall now be torn from us by an Irish hand acting as the instrument of an English Minister, even as the hand of Castleragh tore away in like manner the proud privileges of an independent legisla tore? It may be so; but I for one shall ac quit myself of all participation in a guilty silence whilst the guilty deed was being done. Parliament is undoubtedly called the high council' of the sovereign, but the sovereign's pre,.nce in eit*ler House during: the debatres is described by Sir T. Erskine May as a "qgnestiouable practice which might ,he ut-d to overawe that aseembly and influence ther t, ,ia'es, and which has wisely been disco-t rl:oed se;ce the acces sion of George the First ;" so that the privilege of being present in Parliament during itsdeliberariins, which the meanest of the Queen's s bjec's may pi-saes, can not now be exerris-d by herseit ; and yet we are told that to oppose the Minister in the House of Comm aa is to confu e the counsels of the Q eer,. I forbear from t further comment on this absurd position of Mr. Butt's, and dismiss it with the sin gle additional observation that it shows his legal vision, as well as his political, is sadly clouded by partisan zeal. The change which has come over the language and the attitude of Mr. Batt v within the last few years is one of the most disedifying spectacles which Irish politics has presented in our time. I do not wonder that his personal friends in c Limerick and elsewhere have "fled the g unwelcome story." But theirs is a wmi- u taken kindness, and every encouragement he receives in his present course can only serve to separate him farther and farther from the people iof Ireland and hasten his - final estrangement from their cause. lie has prefe.rredthe applause of the Enilish House of Commons to the gratituldo i.t :i own countrymen and the homS ag which C posterity would have plid to i."a na-e. 11a poritian beloaro the Irish p too;-ie ti da} contrasted with that of Mir. Parl:t aR a'ild serve as a !eson and it watr: it to terlm ur. inrng politician.. His p-)licy in the ir.se of Cinumons could not e-ceed because it was a contra diction of himself, and his tuone nlid atti tude t'iere gave no irmpr'.isin oif tithiur earnestnesa or deo rnminition. Cot I Joseph de Maistre, on being asked tie. question "when is a gouial beaten?' re plied, "a general is beaten wbun le con siders himself beaten." When Mr. Batt pleads for Home Rule in Parliament, which he does most reluctantly, he speaks like an advocate who considers himself beaten -lie speaks as if to crave mercy toe Ireland as the victim of a lost cause rather than to announce her stern resolve to be free. Wel' would it have been if the noble sentiments which the associptions of historic Limerick inspired had been acted upon in the House of Commons. I find in the speech whticl: he delivered to his constituents on the 23rd September, 1875, the following word', which convey almost emphatic contradic tion of his Parliamentary policy and his recent utterances:-"We, yourrepresenta tives, will be powerless unless English statesmen and the English Parliament and the English people are perectly convinced that we are backed by the determ:ination of a people earnestly, aye, dtspae,tely, re solved that the system of goe.narent which is wasting away and degrading our country shouide .ee.e. The day is guceby when great q ieetine were carried by Parliamentary .bcstes." And later on he says, "the history of all popular triumphs -of Emancipation, of the Reform Act, of the Repeal of the Corn Laws-teaches us that in the form of the Government under which we live it 1i diflicult to reeist th6 de termination of n-.iltitudes who are in earnest in auy cea;sa-impossible to d) so when that c;obt, is just." We hear very different R,'ors from him now; we hear much of the good and kindly dispositions of Parliament, but the "determination of multitudes," which three years ago was declared to be irresistible, is orc u ineeredl at and declared to be con:e ipti-e. Why? Be cause th, roultituden t lunriger assemble ii :he name of Isaac Hatt, but in that of Charles Stuart Parnell. In noticing my speech delivered at the Rotondo meeting on the 23rd October last, Mr Butt took good care to avoid a'l refer ence to my quotation from his letter on tihe county Corik election in 186"7, when he said: "Just measures for Ireland will not be passed by the British Parliament unles under the pressure of external danger. or the influeoce of som~e greatL organisatiun combining the Irish people." External danger hias arisen. The Opportunity con templated by Mr. Butt, has come, and, so far from using it to obtain joust measuree for Ireland, he abandons his party on the morning of battle, and serreoders to the enemy without striking a blow. No won der that an American critic should pass sentence of condemnation upon us, and say that the race of Irish stateemeon Is extinct and that our Parliamentary party is only a rack of politicians. But the member for Limerick says that just measures may be won by the influence of some great organisation combining the Irish people. And yet it is uotorious that he is now the implacable foe of every attempt at organisation subject to his fatal influence. He has stifled discussion, re slated investigation, and sheltered political dishonesty. He has deferred the dearest and most cherished hopes of our race for the convenience of those who have sconted our repeated demands for justice, and who still continue to outrage the national feel ing of our country, wherefore I protest that he no longer speak for me, and I raise my voice and Icall upon my country men everywhere to shake off the rags of that tattered and diaeredited "leadership" whieb can only lead to vational infamy and national rain. I am convinced that the Irish people will afford the active section of their repre eentatives ample facilities for vindicating their parliamentary action from the mis representations and aspersions of Mr. Bott and the English press, and I need not therefore enter upon any vindication of that action here; but I think it right to state that we ahat not suffer ourselves to be either driven or taunted into any posi tion from which we should be compelled to retire by craft, or canning, or superior force. Those who constantly charge as with violating the laws of Parliament are un able to find in our action the materials for an indiecment, even with the asaistance of a Select Committee specially appointed for the purpose and the cheerfully rendered legal services of Mr. Batt. We despise the artifcial fears which they have excited, and shall not be deterred from pursuing our policy of sustained resistance while one sacred right of the charter of Irish freedom remains to be won.-I remain, gentlemen. your faithful servant. JoaHN O'CONNOR POWER. 16:h Dacember, 1878. REMARKABLE MORTALITY OF FIsI.-The extraordinary phenomenon displayed on the Florida coast, by which not only the coast waters, but as far ont as 1J50 miles into the Gulf, have been rendered so poi sonocna as to kill the fish and create a peea tilentia. stench in bays and barbhra where the floating carcassees collect, should receive a thorough invest.gation. We have even no other explanation of the poisoning than that it comes from inland watere2-the everglades promiienrtl-and penetrates the golf in strata of dark reddibh water, which kills all the surface fish as soon as ithreachee them, and even far beyond any apparent contact. This poisonous outflow is stated to have been nearly fatal to the fish trade between Florida and Havana- the smacks finding it almost impossible to select a ronte in which the fisah in their wells are not destroyed by the poison. The Key West Key says: "The smack George Storra, Capt. Zeb Alien, attempted to run to the westward in hopes of escap ling the deadly waters, and when fifty miles west of Tortugas, in 25 fathoms of water, lost its wholelfare of fish in a very abort time. He describes the poisoned water to the south and west of him as far as be could see." Fifty miles west of the Torta gas would make the locality indicated 150 miles west of Cape Florida, and not very far from mid-gulf. MISCELLANEOUS. F. A. Gonzales & Bro., Corner o.
