THE LARD LEAGUERS.

■ A Split in the Camp. (By Cable.) London, Jan; 13. The trial of the Land Leaguers at Dublin continues. ’ Mr. MacDonogh has opened the case for the defence of the parties accused, and in the course of Ills address lie made a statement that he regarded the accusations which were brought against the Land Leaguers as being, in reality, the landlords’ indictment against the tenants. London, Jan. 14. Mr. Shaw and fifteen other Irish members of the House of Commons have seceded from Mr. Parnell’s leadership. (By the Mail.) An immense anti-leaguers' meeting was held at Monaghan, on December Iflth, Lord Rossmore presiding. Resolutions were passed declaring that an equitable settlement of the land: question was: absolutely necessary, a settlement giving landlords a fair rent, and tenants protection from rack rents and capricious evictnient.

“ Boycotting ” is inflexibly imposed in disaffected districts, and .is driving even well moaning people’,and many tants into’ open affiliation With;., the Leaguers. Numerous instances are given when with, police protection, .prescribed individuals could obtain uolhing in the way of labor, fool, or lodging'from the inhabitants

.In Dublin, the merchants and other citizens declare that they will not serve on juries in State trials for fear of injury to their business or murder. The local attorneys refuse to serve -eviction papers, and in one instance where' one' did serve papers, he narrowly escaped with his life, although he apologised and promised not to repeat the action. ' Winter has set in with severity, and much suffering exists among laborers on account of the scarcity of work, the League taking care of duly those who/ arc ordered to quit employment as marked men. In some cases, the League ordered landlords to put'on men to improve; their property, which in some cases lias been done. ! ■ • -I-!.: ■. : '

The Chief Justice of the Queen’s Bench, Dublin, denounced the Irish anarchy in unmeasured terms, intimating very plainly that he would enforce tholaw with the utmost rigor possible. For this language, the Chief Justice has been set upon with the utmost fury by the Leaguers in, Ireland and sympathisers in England. One man at Armagh, County Tyrone, lias been sentenced to twenty years imprisonment for shooting ,at-a , landlord’s bailiff. A man named Mulholland was shot dead, by a Leaguer named Graham, near Clonmel, when serving a writ. Graham escaped through being aided by the neighbours, but was afterwards arrested.

On December 14th, Baron Doures, presiding at the Connaught Assizes, read a threatening letter dooming him to death should he convict any of the Leaguers. Several other Judges have received letters of a similar purport. On December 16th, the Land Leaguers issued an address condemning the outrages and sending threatening letters. ' Th§ Leaguers themselves have received threatening letters, and Parnell got one, telling him that he would be shot if he attended a certain meeting pn December 15th. ■ , .. /

The Scots Guards will reinforce the troops here, and a regiment from Gibraltar for England has been ordered to land at Cork.
