LATE EUROPEAN NEWS.

Per s.s. Ringarooma, at the Bluff.) London, Nov. 8. An Irish Women’s Land League has been established. Miss Parnell, to assist the efforts of her brother, has been active of late in fomenting agitation. The Irish Executive is seriously meditating the advisability of suppressing the League. Notwithstanding the pacific intention of the Irish Land Act and the efforts made by the Land Commission to give effect to its provisions, agrarian offences have been very numerous. During the month of October the number reported was no less than 500.

Another manifesto has been issued by the Home Rule leaders, calling on the Irish people to signalise the year 1882 as the centenary of the celebrated deliverance of the great Irish patriot, Henry Grattan, urging his countrymen to strike a blow for freedom.

An agitation has been set on foot among the European residents of Griqualand East, a district in Cape Colony, situated to the west of Natal, having for its object separation from the Cape and annexation to Natal. London, Nov. 12. Healy and Sheehy, who recently left Paris for the United States, have arrived in New York. They have delivered excited harangues before large Irish audiences, in the course of which they denounced the English Government in most violent and unmeasured language.

The Standard publishes, in a semiofficial article, the programme to be submitted by the Cabinet to Parliament during the coming session. It is stated that the first duty of the Government will be to provide some efficient remedy for obviating the systematic obstruction to public business indulged in during the past session. The subject has been under the serious consideration of Mr Gladstone and his colleagues, and its importance is fully recognised. Provision will also be made to expedite public business in other ways. Another great measure of public policy will be one dealing with county government, and will be of an elaborate and exhaustive character. The attention of Parliament will be principally confined to these two subjects.
