St. Patrick's Day at Highland.
Monday, the 17th iust.—-the an
niversary of the birthday ot Patrick,
Ireland's patron saint, was duly
observed by the citizens of High
land. A celebration consisting of
an address, toasts and responses,
intermixed with suitable vocal and
instrumental music, was bold at
Mark's Hall in the evening. The
ball being tilled at about S o’clock,
the exercises opened by the choir
singing “A Happy Greeting to All."
After which Hr. Chas. Egan deliv
ered in a pleasing though forcible
manner the following address;
*• Ladiks anh Hkxtlkmax: —'The
occasion of our mooting boro this
evening is to do honor to the mem
ory of the grout and glorious apos
tle of Ireland, St. Patrick."
“With feelings of regret we an
nounce to you the al*scnce of Hen.
John Janvier —who on account of
sickness is not with us to-night
who was to respond to the toast.
“ The Day wo Celebrate/’
“The day wo celebrate is the
anniversary of the birthday of
St. Patrick, who converted and
elevated pagan and intidol Ireland
to a fertile islands of Christians,
who have for 1,500 years, through
reformations, revolutions, stnrva
tions and tyranny, kept the faith
of that illustrious saint enshrined
in their hearts.”
“It is unnecessary to say with
what reverence and love the name
of St. I’atriek is received to-day,
not only in our dear native land
over the sea, but in every corner of
the globe in which there is an Irish
Catholic community or where an
Irish heart beats. Fifteen hundred
and six years ago to-day was born
the meat illustrious saint that
adorns the pages of history. Though
his cradle was rocked on other soil,
God had written on his brow the
Savior of Ireland, and during a
long life of devotion to a, holy cause
ho beheld the chains of idolatry
broken. The labor was excessive,
but the spirit of Clod nerved Ids
saintly heart and strengthened his
body to heroic endurance; and,
dying at the advanced age of one
hundred and twenty years, he
again beheld faith’s rock-founded
temples lifting their domes heaven
ward, proclaiming St. Patrick the
apostle and Ireland is Catholic, and
he left behind him monuments of
virtue that the storms of time nor
political bondage can ever destroy.
The name of St. Patrick is indelibly
inscribed on the hearts of the Irish
people,—his deeds shine as bright
ly on the earth as the stars of
heaven, —thus to-day throughout
the length and breadth of the civil
ized world tin; Irish Catholic cele
brates the anniversary of the birth
day of his patron saint.”
“As Irishmen we have no day of
political jubilee, hut we have, thank
(Jod, abetter one, the 17th of March,
the birthday of the apostle who
raise i us from the yoke' of idolatry
to the genial sunshine of the Divine
“ With hearts filled with these
memories, we come here to-night to
express our admiration and devo
tion for the memory of a saint who
planted Christianity on the soil of
Ireland. For this large and appre
ciative* audience on this, our first
celebration, 1 may congratulate and
cordially and most heartily wel
come you all.”
“The Harp that once through
Tara Hall " was -ung by the choir
and Rev. I’. K. Ryan made a very
spirited res | >ouse to the toast, Ire
land. After the singing of that
patriotic song. “America,” Mr. M.
J. Casey reponded to “ The land of
our adoption.” Mr. Casey eulo
gized our form of government and
very forcibly set fortlial wholesome
Democrrtic doctrine of home-rule.
To the toast, “The Hierarchy,”
Rev. S Trant responded in a man
ner which could not fail to please
all who hoard him. The response
was very interesting and instruct
ive. and its delivery showed Father
Tr.vut to ho an able Christian priest
who was faithfully endeavoring to
fulfill his mission hy preaching
Chirst and Hint crucified. Mr.
Patrick Delaney responded to "The
Sons of Krin.'' Mr. Delaney is a
fluent and lloyvery speaker. Ho hud
the close attention of his audience
while he delivered u lengthy eulo
gism on Irishmen as statesmen,
yvarriors, etc.* 'l'hc choir sang
“ Home, Syyeet Home,” and those
who desired dispersed to their
home*, hut the majority remained
to take part in a social dame. The
Delaney Brothers furnished excel
lent music and about seventy
couples kept the lloor occupied
until about five o'clock on Tuesday
morning. Highlands first celebra
tion of St. Patrick’s Day was indeed
a success.

Cotliron’s Prospect.
True He publican.
Judge Mills, of (Irani county,
who held the office of circuit judge
in the Fifth judicial district, slated
in Madison recently, that Grant
county alone would give Cothren
from I‘ KfO to 1500 majority over
Cole. Mills held the office of cir
cuit judge in that district for twelve
years, and is a good judge of public
sentiment. Grant county is the
former home of Judge Cole, he
having lived in Potosi till the time
of his election to the supreme
bench. If Mr. Cothren could carry
that county by such a majority,
his election in the Htate would la? a
settled fact.
