[From the Hannibal (Mo.) Republic, Nov. 23d]
An Incident at Hannibal--Somewhat
Funny and Very Embarrassing.
ibartassln-, ,, ... , ,. ..,
jA little incident was related to, tjs
last evening, which we consider quite
rich, and did. we not know .the gentle
man who mado the blunder, wo would
roost certainly think somebody, wan
tight, maybe. The incident occurred
at a private boarding-houso in this
city, about lour o'clock yesterday
morning, and was related to us as hav
ing thus occurred :
A certain 3ouug gentleman, who
boards at a certain private house a
respectable house, too had occasion to
remain away from his bed until lour
o'clock in the morninv. This is not
uncommon with young gentlemen in
our city this particular one, especially.
Some time after tea, on the evening of
that eventful morning, two beautiful,
buxom young ludios from the country,
friends and acquaintances of the land
lady, arrived. . Beds being rather
scarce, and the young gentleman not
expected to bo homo that night, with
out a word of explanation or warning,
una of the young ladies was placed in
the young gents room. , Asa matter of
course, utter going through tho usual
manipulations unhitchjug clasps, but
tons, books and eyes, &c, tho beautiful
damsel was properly arranged for . ta
king charge of adowny bark, and ship
ping for the land of dreams. AVe will
leave the dear creature in, .her slum
bers, and see whut has become of the
young gent., . It is now nearly four
o'clock in the morning. ' , All nature is
hushed in Bolemn stillness. .'. The gentle
brceza, ,of. moraine, eoftlv. tondcrlv
.sighs as it, kisses , the ', check of the
gentleman, who at this hour we find
.wending, his way homeward.'. ' The
twinkling stars, look '.down from tho
.blue canopy above and merrily dance
us though they enjoyed the prospect
, for a scene, . Young gent not , wishing
to awaken tho inmates of his boarding
house, cautiously approaches the door,
, and, after carefully inserting his night
key, is pleased to find the bolt yields
without a squeak. Ho softly feels his
way to his room, littledrcamingofwhnt
he Would be compelled to witness in a
few. short minutes... We'd leave the
reader to imagine tho result, but, as the
, story is a peculiar as well as a fuuny
one, wp'ro of the opinion that we'd
better tell tho whole of it. Young gent
approaches his room, and' knowing the
location of- the furniture, ic , being
-without "matches, etiters the room,
doses the door, and ! immediately dis
robes himself. - Without further cere-
many he throws his weary limbs and
body upon the. beds As, a mutter of
course, he was somewhat surprised to
. .iind his bed occupied, and, wishing to
know who his bed-fellow was, ho rolled
! over and gave the young lady as rude
. ' as it inayseem a dig in the side, in
"ouiring as he did ' so: "Who1 in the
'"devil are you?" 'A slight movement
' on the part of the young lady followed
" tbi demonstration,-, and then - very
' frantically she exelairaod, "Good God!
-and in an instant she was standing in
the middle of the room, frightened so
. badly that she was pnable to say a
. , word. The young gentleman ducked
his head ui.der tho covering, and in
this position endeavored '. to explain.
Young lady slid' out, and, wo have boon
. informed, failed to appear at the break
fast table at the " proper lime. Tho
'- position was, wo would judg so-at
least, A very trying one, and both par

Fenianism in Ireland.
Great Excitement About the Expected
[Dublin Correspondence, of N. Y. World.]
-Affairs in Ireland at present are in
the most uncertain state they havebecn
for many yenrs. Tho people are in a
stale of excitement bordering on mad
iicm; the Government is bewildered and
preplexed; the military authorities are
drilling and maneuvering; the police
are arresting and locking up; the pris
on officials are complaining of want of
accommodation, and tho civio dignita
ries aro ussfi-iiiig there is no ciiubu for
alarm. V Why. is this thus?" as your
talented countrymen, A. Ward, would
ask. Well, I will toll you.
For some months past the English
Government and tho loyal portion of
the Irish people have been flattering
th'innelws that Fenianism was dead.
The wholesale arrests effected under
the suspension of tho habeas corpus
act, the garrisoning of the country, the
suppressing of the "Irish-I'eople," and
tho punishment inflicted on the con
victed Fenians all these- things were
thought by the English Government to
have had such a terroiising effect on
tho disuffected musses that they would
immediately repent, obtain absolution
of a notoriously anti-national priest
hood, and take theoath of union, prom
ising allegiunce to their parental rulers,
it hud lulled itself into fancied securi
ty, and the Fenians were being looked
upon, as before the arrests, ns mythical
beings, who, if they did at all exist,
merely - uttered threats in America
against Canada, which they never in
tended to sabstuntiate, but had .forgot
ten nil about Ireland and . an attempt
ati rebellion there. But , from this
dream of security there has been . un
awakening. The Government finds it
has been unable to kill tho Irish senti
ment and denationalize the Irish pco-
5 ile, and find that, far from eradicating
'enianisnt, : it has strengthened ... it;
that far from - living out of danger,
that danger is more immediate thun
ever.- , i.r , ; -: u : :
banishing so many persons to Amoricu
who had come bver to preach the doc
trine of freedom to an opprofscd race,
any could be found so regardless of
their own safety as to repeat tho at
tempt. With myriad detectives of tho
keenest sagacity there wus no escaping
arrest if they did' come, and with tho
gold bought services of 'diT American
Consul like West," they were satisfied,
if o.nce arrested, even United States
citizenship would avail them tittle; and
yet Dublin, Cork, and even Beliast, at
tho-present moment, swarms with sus
picious personages. These "suspicious
personages." ' although not' wearing
squaro-tocd boots, nor speaking with a
nasal twang, nor guessing, calculating,
nor reckoning, nor yet call for 'ipoek
lails" and 'smashes," "juleps and
"whieky-skiiis," aro known to be Amer
icans, and are kept under tho strictest
espionage, I luivo s-ifn numbers of
them, and spoken to several iu my ca
pacity as your correspondent. I know
them to bo Fenian agents. " Some of
them put up at the best-' hotels ' in the
City, and show un extraordinary amount
of skill in evading the vigilance of the
police, for each is well aware he is
, Where is the man who has not his
price? Who in this sordid ago will
talk of being incorruptnbU ?. and when
was there ever a political organisation,
however noble , iu Its aims, without a
traitor some baso, unworthy wretch,'
who, for t'fillhy lucre," would not sell
his compaions? , Probably nowhere
has this traitorous faculty been more
largely developed than in this unhappy
county. . Jimmy O'Brien in '98, and
Pierro JJaglos in 'C6, vied with one
another in villainlynnd, even now, in
Ireland,, thcro are O'Briens, Nagles,
and eveu Castlerenghs't who, sufrifiuing
all the noble instincts of humanity at
the altar of .Mammon; scruple' not to
sell their countrymen., I know not it'
James Stephens be a spy I think not;
many hero assert he ii but I do know
that every plan and every action of
tuo Jiemun organization ismauo known
to England; and not only tliat,Lut that
if sho liked she chould ut this moment
Jay her finger on every Fn:au in Ire
land.. . You may ask ine how is this,
and why she, does' nut arrest them.
I You may suy that England bouyted of
tins knowledge months ago, ana yet
1 was palpably-lit fault, 'Even so,' but
siuto that time,' within tho lust throe'
weeks, tho British . authorities ' have
been put in possession of information
(.l a, if FcnianUm ' 'bo . treason, and
if the piinitJimciit of treason be death,
would congn ono-half the adult malo
population, of, tho. country to the gal
lows v .Then wily she does not da so I
will afterward show." 'Permit me now
to ptute a point. Some'five weeks ago,
a map 'came to this country, Sutton1., or
Putton, I can't say which,, bj? name,
lie ws said to be the accredited agent
of Stephens here, and vested by him
with lull power; intrusted by mm with
all the seerets of the organization. This
man has been bought, and is at this
moment doing the work hot for which
he may have been sent hero by James
Stephens to do, but that for which he
is paid by the British Government.
Leaving for a moment this branch
of the subject, let mo speak of the re
cent Bright reform banqoct nnd meet
ing in Ireland. John Bright is well
aware that, however reform may suc
ceed in England, it would by no means
work in Ireland. The English Gov
ernment knows of this, and know also
that he can never bono to carry through
such a movement in Parliament. View
ing, then, the disloyal, the undoubtedly
disaffected state of the Irish people, he
(Bright) was sent over here to distract
public attention from Fenianism, to
convert For inns to the old doctrine of
"agitation" preached byO'Connell, but
which never did any good for Irelund
and never will. The Irish people are
dissatisfied, and justly so, with the
laws that now govern them; but give
them a code of laws as just as tho an
cient Breton, as faultless as those of
Draco, tho Grecian legislator, and re
membering the wrongs of centuries,
they will still hate England, still bo
dissatisfied, and still be Fenians. It is
not with the present that they
quarrel, but with the past. Whether
this would be just or not, would be
outside my povince to argue. I am
satisfied it is the feeling of the majority
of tho Irish nation. Thus John Bright
has undoubtedly failed in his mission.
His eloquence und I listened to it, on
tho two occasions he spoka in Dublin,
with pleasure fell on listless ears.
His auditors knew, when he spoko of
"justico to Ireland," that it were im
possible Of attainment in his way, and,
though they perhaps heard with pleas
uro tho Orator of the people, they
heeded not what he said. The people
wont separation from England, and
this alone. ' .
With the knowledge thus Attained,
England has discovered that a revolu
tion cannot bo stifled. ; She tried that
plan by suspending the "act1" as
said, and found it inefficacious. Now
she is determined to let the storm come
and strive to weather it, to let tho Fe
nians rise and fight it out Arrests
are becoming less frequent, though the
sume vigilauco is exercised as before,
and all tho attention is turned not
arresting u rebellion, but to suppress
ing it so soon as it shows itself. With
this end, additional numbers of "cock
ney" detectives have boon imported
hither. These are distributed through
out the country, and scarcely . a town
land is there that has not its specjal.
Dublin is full of them, fipperury
warms with them. Kerry, Cork and
Wexford all the counties in Ireland,
in fact, have their share of these ob
noxious personages. This secret ser
vice force is under complete organisa
tion, Sir Thomas Darcon, of the Castle,
and Lake, of the constabulary, being
at the head. Bi-weekly reports are
made from each man to headquartors,
and from these reports a weekly statement
is sent to Irish Executivo. Thus
everything occurring in the country is
known, almost as soon as, it takes place,
to tho Government. On these reports,
tho military force under Lord Strath
nairn, formerly Sir Hugh Roise,
manipulated, weak points aro strength
ened, and strong ones made even more
strong..-,.-. ., . ,.i .,,- , ...... ,
' As tho first of January approaches
the hopes of the Fenians are rising.
They have no doubt but that Stephens
will fulfill his promises of coming back
to Ireland, and there is a rumor hero
that ho is already on his way. Though
the Government has' undoubted facili
ties for procuring information as re
gards the working of Fentanism hero,
unfortunately I am not so well situated.
I can. through certain officials here,
hear of the movements of the Govern
ment; but, even though 'your corres
pondent, I cannot b! sufficiently high
for unscrupulous traitors.1 Their figuro
Is rather too lofty for my exchequer.
However, I can put you in pocsion
bf some few important facts. During
tho past Six weeks no less than sixteen
thousand revolvers have been distribu
ted through' tho - Fenian circles in Ire
land. These weapons hove been in
tho city, stored, for some time, having
been purchased by James Stephens
from an English manufacturing house.
This will probably explain his seeming
relqctHiu-e to accunt for' moneys re
(oired from r John Uiichel. Did he
stuto Mio purchased ' with the mbney
arhis and munitions of 'war, he would,
of course, be compelled to give some in
formation ns to how he bought them,
and from 'whom.-- ' The "boys" in the
different sections of' tho country arai
drilling and practicing themselves in
the ue of the revolrer and 1 ifle. 1 1 am
told that in the mountainous districts
this is carried on extensively. The
vacancies cansed by the arrest of those
under the suspension are said to be all
filled.' 'This carrying' on of prepura
tloa,' under' sue 11 difficulties, plainly
denotes the iudomiUble energy of the
Celtic race, and their determined reso
lution to in est th'eir old enemy, if Ste
phens only his Word. 1
The various barracks in and about
Dublin are being put in A state of de
fense. It will be necessary, in order
that your readers may understand this
portion, ior.me to say a few words on
the fortifications of this city. Passing
over the fortifications of the harbor
and coast as unnecessary of description
in this instance. I will bring you Into
the heart of tho citr in fact, to the
castle. This is but a castle in namo,
having none of those attributes or sur
roundings one is authorized always to
connect with the idea of a castle. It
is simply a collection of offices,' three
guard rooms one at each entrance n
small tower, A handsome chapel, and
the vice-royal appurtmcnts, or the town
residence of.: tu Lord-lieutenant
There is a thorougfare through the
castle yard, the walls on cither side
being pierced for small guns, and pro
sunting an appearance of strength.
The guard at the castle, within the last
week, has been largely increased, and
the castlo gardens havebecn beautified
by the introduction into them of two
pieces of artillery. Contiguous to the
castle is Ship street barracks, capable
of accomodating some 2,500 men.
This barrack is now quite full; but, as
these men are merely for the defense
of the castle, should un occasion arrive
it is not in itself a place of strength
Outsido the city there are, on the south
side, Portobcllo, Richmond, Beggar's
Bush and Bridgo . Barracks: on the
north Bide, the Royal an- Aldboroug
Barracks. These govern all the ap
proaches to the city, and can accomo
date in all som45,000 or 16,00(1 men.
All these barracks are being put in a
state of defense. The ordinance offi
cers aro hourly engaged In tho work.
The walls around them are Wing
strengthened in many places, and flank-
uig projections, wim various loup-noies
commanding the various points from
which an attack' might be expected.
The jails are being similarly fortified,
chevaux dt frite are boinz put in every
avavailable place, and the guard in all
cases is being doubled. These pre para
lions are not confined to Dublin and its
environs. ' Similar ' works Are being
carried out through the provinces.
Tralee Barracks is being greatly
strengthened; Limerick the same way,
and a large number of men ; are ' en
gaged in strengthening the old fortifi
cation of Ath lone Castle.
Preparations are now entirely con
fined to the military in the .country.
The Dublin metropolian police, about
twelvo hundred strong, are being
put through a course of diligent train
ing in thtj use ol the cutlass and revol
ver. They ar seen, daily drilling in
tho castle yard, are really a fine body
of men. The . country, constabulary
have also got orders to perfect their
drill. , These forces will, of course, be
brought into, close contact with the
enemy in case of a lising; but England
need not depend on other departments
of tho police forco for an excess of
loyalty, as both are largely permeated
with disaffection.
Thus both the government and the
Fenians anticipate a rising. What the
result may be is hard to toll. Wero I
to write you my opinions, I would say
a sueccbBful rebellion in Ireland at
Iiresent was as impracticicuble as in
7D3 or 1843. A largo portion of the
Irish people are undoubtedly opposed
to an attempt, and say thut, if mado, it
will prove a greater fiasco than the
cabbage-garderi movement of Smith
O'Brien- Many think otherwise, and
assert they have good reasons for
thinking so.' ' I have given you a state
ment of what England knows, what
she iB doing, and what she intends to
do, and will leave your intelligent
American readers to judge for them
selves. It is generally believed that
the rising will take place here on
Christmas eve, the 24th of December,
and that the day celeberated ns the
natal day of a world s Savior will wit
ness a sTrugglo for dear old Ireland's
liberty.' May God bless the green I

Meteors—A Brilliant Display
Seen on the North Coast of
The editor of the Matanzas (Cuba)
Licio, on the night of November 12
and 13, counted, thirty-nine brilliant
meteors, the majority ol them between
the hours of 0110 and two in the morn
ing. . On tho night of November 13
and It, the number observed was much
greater, being threehundred and forty
in all.
Their appearance was as follows:
From six to seven P. M., two inotcors,
with trails four degrees long, ono ot
six degrees, one with notrail. Between
eight and nine P. M., ono meteor, with
luminous trail covering seven degrees.
From nine to ten P. n., two nieteore,
without trails, and one of six degrees
of a luminous emination.V .From ten to
eleven P. M twelve meteors, eight of
which had trails covering from two to
ten degrees of space; some of these me
teors were very red in color. Between
eleven and twelve P.M., there appeared
ten meteors, similar to tho preceding.
From twelve to one 'A. M., thirty-six
made their appearance, many ot them
of first magnitude, and some of them
lasted one or two seconds some even
longer. Between one and two A. M.,
sixty-five meteors appeared; 1'iom two
to three, eighty-one. Some of theso
were very brilliant; four oflhcm started
from the star Gamma Leonis. Between
thre and five one hundred and eleven
appeared, of which nine were from the
Lion. Between five and half-past five
seventeen appeared one Irom the
constellation .Lion.
On the night of November 14 and 15?
sr counted one hundred and twenty
eight between the hours of 7 P. M. aud
5 A, M. The editor of tho Licio prom
ises to give a detailed account of these
meteors in a future article. He con
cludes by saying:' "For tho present it
suffices lo say that we have had- the
good fortune ofseeingthe great shower.
Most probably tho heavy portion of
the shower passed over us iu day -firms,
so that we caught a glimpse merely ol
tho end 01 the shower on tho morning

data afforded this time, it is proved
beyond doubt that tho period ot recur
