Irish News.

Antrim* — Patrick Hughes, an employee of McKeona and Sons, York street, Belfast, was bitten some time since by a do«. The wound was not considered dangerous, and little or no attention was paid to it. Recently alarming symptoms were visible, and he was put into the Royal Hospital, but shortly after his admission became delirious and required to be guarded. Little doubt is now entertained but the man died from hydrophobia. He was only 23 years of age.

A prospectus has been issued in connection with Ballycastle Hotel Company, the share capital bein^ £4000, in 800 shares of £5 each. The company has been formed for the purpose of building a marine hotel at Ballycastle, a watering-place which is decidedly growing in public favour. The scenery in this district is exceedingly beautiful, and since the opening up of the coast road from Lame to Port Rush,, and the establishment of a regular service of cars, Ballycastle has been looked upon as a convenient place to stop in order to explore the famous scenery of Glenanffa and the Giant's Causeway.

A special meeting of the Guardians of the Ballymoney Union was held recently in the Workhouse to consider what steps they should take in reference to the Barm Drainage Bill now before Parliament. Thomas McElderry. Chairman of the Board, presided. There were also present : — Sir Francis E. McNaughten,Bart., Messrs. Alexander McNeil), Willam Hunter, Hugh Carson, James Pinkerton, James Kennedy, Thomas McUurdy. Joseph Reynolds, Thomas Hutchinson, James Gillan, John McKee, and John Boyd. Thomas McCurdy then proposed the following resolution :— " That it would be more for the advantage of the country that the Barm Drainags Bill now before Parliament be withdrawn." He thought it would not be fair to tax those who would derive no benefit. After some discussion the resolution was adopted.

Armagh.— The long drought told somewhat against flax, barley, etc., but wheat is in splendid condition. Flax has improved very much in the past few weeks. John Heaney, of Derrytagh South, was evicted some months ago by Lord Lurgan. Heaney and his friends stoutly resisted the Sheriff and biiliff. The farm has not been touched by any person, and is in the charge of one of the celebrated Emergencymen. who has the honor and glory of seeing several of the Koyal Irish dancing attendance on his honour. The hay was recently put up tor sale, but no person would buy, so the landlord determined to mow the crop himself. By some mysterious means a nice, low wire netting grew up with the hay, and great trouble was experienced by the Emergencymen in cutting this mixed crop of bay and wire for his Lordship of Lurgan. The people around Derrytagh are now confident the " good people " are not all left Ireland yet.

Carlow* — The oat crop has been very much affected by the drought, and it will be short, thin, and unprofitable. Barley, in moat districts, looks well, and an average yield may be expected. Wheat has thriven remarkably well and is a really fine crop, but the acreage sown in this district is insignificant. Early-sowu potatoes are fairly good, but iv cases where the sowing was deferred till late in the season there are very poor crops. Farmers will suffer severely on account of the almost entire failure of the turnip crop. In large breadths of land sown the plants have either been eaten down by tue fly or the seed has not started for want of moisture. The weather during the haymaking season has been splendid, and tha quality of the crop is as good as it could be. Lite meadows are, however, light, and the farmer who depends on the sale of hay or meadowing will realise very little. In some instances, indeed, meadows have been let at £1 an acre, although the rent of the land was double that figure. On the whole the season cannot be called a favourable one for the farmers.

Cavan. — When the members of Drumlane League recently met it was decided to send £5 to the Central Executive, in order to assist in breaking down the graspmg and inhuman institution — bad landlordism.

Clare* —The general aspect of the crops in Bnnis district is promising. The bay has been an abundant oae ; potatoes, oats, and barley are also good.

The people of Kilmurry-McMahun district recently denounced Removable Koacbe for ttie monstrous sentence passed on Mr. Healey of Barraduff. The National League, Father Gilligan presiding, determined to sustain Joseph Scales until he is reinstated iv his holding by Vandeleur.

The Widow O'Neill, of Ballygreen, was recently evicted by Lord Inchiquin. Since that time the poor woman has been ill and raved continually about her eviction. She never recovered the shock and died. Her funeral wa9 attended by aconcouise of people from the surrounding districts, whose hearts beat in unison with the deceased in her sorrow and affliction.

Frank O'Donnell presided at last meeting of Kilkee League. A letter was read from John Breen and Joe Maloney expressing regret for driving police and Emergencymen during the West Clare evictionp. The apology was accepted. Michael ityan's name was removed from the list of membership for taking a farm from which Maloney was evicted. John Corry, of Lislaaahan, was also struck off.

Mr. Balfour's army of occupation in Ireland— the police— have quite a good time in West Clare. Their time is a grand mixture of cruelty and pleasure. The former consists in throwing out the unfortumte tenants and breaking the heads of the peacefully inclined ; the latter in eatug, drinking, and play\ng cricket. Latest accounts inform us that the force were recently engaged playing cricket at Lahinch. How the rale-payers of Clare must feel pleased at this I They cannot afford themselves any enjoyment, the struggle to live is so hard ; yet they must find the extra police tax to enable the

R.I.C. to evictand play cricket. The British Government is truly ft paternal institution as regards the liuh Hx-payers.

Cork. — When Dr. Tanner recently arrived in Cork on his way to Tipperary, he was enthusiastically received and addressed a great meeting at the Victoria Hotel.

There was a great number of boycotted cattle at the lk u t fair of Killeagh. bomehow people kept clear of them, and itiey lemained unsold. The police werj there ; still the word went ronnd and the cattle were not purchased nor auy arrests made. The initial ssapt a p towards forming a committee for the Mandeville Memorial has been taken. Mr. Casjy has assured the signature of the Mitcheletown people to a requisition, asking Dean O'Regan to call a public meeting and inaugurate the movement. Dr. Tanner was recently conveyed from Galway Gaol to Tipperary on a charge of " spitting " at Inspector Stepheus. Dr. Tanner addressed the court in his own defence and wound up by telling the Removablesand the Government to do their worst. Forthe" spitting" charge he was sent to gaol for one month ; for defying the court he was to find bails for £200 or go to gaol for three months. The representatives of law and order have been a long time looking for Tom Barry, but somehow, though always visible, they could not manage to take him. He attended the fair of Mallow recently ,and whilst in conversation with John Slattery, of Cork, he was arrested. They then hurried him before the Removables and charged him with intimidating parties in the counties of Cork and Waterford. Messrs Golden and Sheehan, of Mallow, went bail for him and he was liberated until bis tria 1 is fixed.

Timothy Daly, of Duhallow, was recently evioted. He has a wife and 10 children thrown on the world for whom he must try and provide. The tenant was working on the land when the eviction forces appeared, and he determined to resist. A bailiff attacked the door with a crowbar, and on entering was collared Dy Daly. They, however, flung out his furniture and then himself and his helpless family. The question is at present being asked in every civilised country how long will such a demon-like course be allowed to be pursued by liish landlords with impunity. The Town C'erk of Cork, having by direction of the Corporation submitted a series of queries to Mr. Samuel Walker as to the advisability of bringing an action against tbe Government authorities for forcibly entering tbe Corn Market and refusing to leave when ordered by the corporate officials to do so. counsel has replied that an action should be brought against District-Inspector Seymour, who was in command of the police when the trespass took placa. The Corn Market has by a recent agreement been vested in the Corporation. Counsel considers that the present is a good opportunity to test the right of the police to violate the rights of private property.

Derry. — Baron Dowse, when opening the Commission recently, addressing the Grand Jury, said he was glad to say their labours would be very light. From the County-Inspector's report, and from inquiries he had made, he found that the County was worthy ol the name it bore of being a peaceful, orderly, and law-abiding part of the world. Of offences specially reported there were twenty«one during the corresponding period of last year, while this year there were only six, which certainly was a very small quota of crime for such a large county. Of minor offences there was also a decrease in assaults and larcenies, and in the convictions for drunkenness.

Donegal* — Reports from the Letterkenny district are to the effect that the crops are at best only of a middling description. The very dry season has kept the growth and quantity much behiud.

One of tbe prisoners at present confined on the charge of killing Inspector Martin, and whose name is Charles Diver, has been released oq bail. His health is so bad that it is feared he will succumb.

Father SlcCarton, of Donoghmore, Tyrone, recently visited Mr. Cony beare and one of the untried Donegal prisoners in Derry Gaol. Mr. Conybeare suffers from rheumatism and want of fresh air in his cell. All the prisoners complain of their eyes getting weak.

Some of the tenants on the Swiney property, which adjoins the now desolate waste called the Olphert estate, were evicted. John McGee, Upper Carrowcannon, was amongst the number. When the Emergencymen entered the house the wife of the tenant rushed out bleeding from a big gash in the head. The military doctor was quite close to her but made no effort to assist the poor woman. There were eight evictions carried out, but no resistance given.

This is what they said in Africa : — That we, thelmembers of the Esmond-Deasy branch of the 1.N.L., Port Elizabeth, Soutn Africa, unanimously condemn the unscrupulous and malicious policy of the present Tory Government in assisting a tyrannical rack-renter like Mr. Olphert to deprive hia poor tenants in Oonegal of the homes they have bo long struggled hard to maintain. We consider such cowardly oppression as unjust as it is unconstitutional, and only worthy of an Administration which connives at the foul accusations of forgers, perjurers, aod liars. And we convey our heartfelt thanks to Father McFadden, Mr. Swift O'Neil, M.P. ; Mr. P. O'Brien, M.P. ; Mr. Conybeare, M.P., and all those who have so fearlessly extended their help and sympathy to the unfortunate evicted tenants. Aod we further condemn the imprisonment and cruel treatment of the Irish Members of Parliament aa a wanton outrage upon the representatives of the people.

Dublin*— The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Thomas Sexton, M.P., complains that the letter from the President of the United States to him was opened by the English authorities and has written to Washington on the subject.

A new Irish industry has been started in Dublin by the establishment of a distillery for the production of yeast, which is claimed to be the purest and strongest in the market. It is guaranteed to leave the distillery in an absolutely untainted condition, and, being a home manufacture, can be obtained by the consumer perfectly fresh the morning after it is made. The company, which has its offices at 6 College street, Dublin, anticipate a very extensive patronage for their yeast.

Fermanagh.— The Loyalists of the Southern Division of Fermanagh are working hard at the registration of voters, the object being to oust Mr. Campbell, who represents it in the Nationalist interest. "They cannot succeed in displacing him. Galway.— At the last Milltown League meeting, Edward Blake, vice-president, in the chair, the principal business was the consideration of an application received on behalf of four evicted tenants, viz ., Michael Flattery, who is evicted ;by P. J. B. Daly, solicitor, Galway, and whose house and lands are occupied by an Emergencyman belonging to the so-called Prop<rty Defence Association ; Patrick Acton, John Acton, and Michael Boyle, who are evicted by Mr. Meldon, of Coolarne, near Turloughmore. All the holdings are in possession of Emergencymen, and from what can be seen of them in this parish they certainly are the best piid idlers in the world. Chairman.— lam delighted to see such a large and representative meeting, particularly on this occasion. It shows the more the people are persecuted the more they are determined to stand by each other, and i must now declare, gentlemen, that the time has come for us all to be on our sharps, and at our next meeting, please God, I hope weiwill have full instructions as to how we are to act in future, (loud cheers). Secretary— The time is near at hand when we can stand up and def^ the worst attributes of landlordism. Hundreds are suffering in the gaols all over the country, but for what crime I am at a loss to know. Every good Irishman almost has served his term on the plank-bed ; that's the greatest honour Mr. Balfour could confer on them. The meeting was also addressed by Messrs. T. Doaelan, P. Grady, and John Mulltn, and the following resolution unammmsly adopted :— That we offer our heartfelt sympathy to the evicted tenants, the late victims of landlordism in this parish, and we pledge ourselves to extend to them our practical support in this their hour of misfortune. „ Kerry.— Dean Coffey, of Tralee, has been appointed Bishop of K. rry by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII. The Killarney local magistrates recently inflicted a fine of £6 on Lord Kenmare for trespass of catt eon the land of Charles Daly. Mr. Leonard could hardly be ieve his ears when he heard Lord Kenmare was fined to satisfy an Irish farmer, and hot words passed between the bench and himself, but he was shut up pretty quickly. The Kenmare Estate bailiffs are still busy raiding the farms ie the interest of grasping landlord'sm. Ballacommane townland was recently visited and stock belonging to the following tenants ssized and impounded :— Thomas Connors. John SuUivane, lohn Kelly of Coolcashlagh, Thade Horgan of Ballacommane, John Moynihan of Lessivigeen, and T. J. O'Connor had their stock also driven off by the bailiffs. Kilkenny.— Father Prendergast presided at last Granie League meeting. The committee present were— F. Fogarty, T. Henneberry, M.Glendon ; Wm. Leahy, treasurer ; M. Ryan, secretary. The following resolutions were passed unanimously .— " That we congratulate the Rev. Canon Doyle on the honour conferred on him by Balfour, in singling him out for prosecution for standing up for the rights i f the people." " That no words are sufficient to express our admiration fort Vie heroic services of Wiiliam O'Brien on behalf of the Irish tenantry." " That we resolve to give every support in our power to the Tenants' Defence League, soon to be established by the Irish leaders." Limerick.— The tenants on the Earl of Devon's property have Bucceeted in getting a reduction of 20 per cent, on judicial and non-judicial renta. This reduction was at first refused, but the detprmination and solid appearance of the tenants' attitude compelled the landlord's surrender. Michael McCarthy was prosecuted at Newcastlewest Sessions for having said " I don't care for any biiliff." This is the latest discovery of what may be " intimidation " under the elastic rule of Balfour. McCarthy had to find bail in order to avoid the gaol ; there would be no glory in getting into the "stone jug" on such a miserable charge. The election of a successor to the late Right Bey. Dr. Ryan, Coadjutor- Bi-hop of Killaloe, was held recently in Ennis. The ceremonies commenced with the celebration of Pontifical High Mass, at which numerous inhabitants from the most distant parts of the diocese attended. The Moat Rev. Dr. Croke, Archbi«hop of Casbel, provided. In attendance at the throne was his Grace's chaplain, Very Rev. Arthur Ryan, President Thnrles College. Revs. Michael Carey. Ennis, was celebrant ; M. O'Kelly, Ennis, deacon ; Denis ODea, Kilmaley, sub-deacon ; Dmiel Costigan, Clarecastle, officiated as master of ceremonies. Immediately after Mass the priests present, to the number of 5.j, proceeded toel»c r the Bishop, the result being :— Very Rev. T. G. Mcßedmond, D.D. Killaloe, dignisshmis. 38 ; Very R^v. M. Culluan, President Diocesan College, Ennis, dignior 6. and Rev. Denia Kelly, Vice-President Diocasan College, Ennis, dignus, 5. There iR general satisfaction at the choice made. There were also votes given for four other clergymen, viz :— Fathers Hogarty, Bugler, Egan, and Ryder. L>Ongf ord. — The people of Longford were amusingly entertained recently by Constable Waters and a goat. The constable found John Kf nny '<j goat trespassing on the Battery walk and arrested it. Before that feat was accomplished tht« peeler was the most foolish-looking man in Longford, and, no doubt, when in the privacy of his room swore he never more would meddle with ?i goat. At full Killoe League meeting held at Ennvbegv Edward Cooney presided. Others present— J. Meehau, treas. ; J. Doherty, Vice-Pres. ; J. Flynn, assistant sec. ; A. Murphy, James Scanlon Daniel Quinn, Patrick McGoey. After the minutes of the last meeting were read and the resolutions confirmed, an animated discussion arose between M. Jones and P. McKemu, whose statements were heard, and it went to a vote, when there were thirteen for Jones and nine for McKenna, which brought a vote of censure on Jones. He excused himself and said he was ignorant of what he did. Tnen, at Father Briody's suggestion, hp Hfked Mr. Jones to withdraw his claim on the farm for the sake of public peace and unity, which he honourably did— a fact

which reflects great credit on him. Patrick McKenna was declared the tenant and Michael Jones was refunded his money. The meeting then adjourned on friendly terms.

I,OUth. —At a Coercion Court held atCollon recently, presided ovar by Messrs. Kilkelly and Townsend, J. Bellin, Patrick Finnigan, and Francis Finnigan were charged with intimidating Robert Wade from occupying a farm on the Massererne estate formerly held by John Moonan. rt ade stated that on July 14 last he heard the defendants shout and whistle at two of his workmen, Christopher Moonan and Thos. Cunningham, as they were working in a field of his. In reply to Mr. Redmond he said he was not a bit frightened at these demomtrations. Thos. Cunningham deposed he did not see the defendants do anything, Christopher Moonan stated that he heard Finnigan shouting and Moonan whistling, and Bellin shouted at and cursed him, saying he would soon be out of the country with the rest of the rotten crew. A charge of intimidating Moonan was then taken. On the application of Mr. Redmond the case against Bellin was dismissed, and being called as a witness he stated that he did not hear whistling, but the noiße of a cart might prevent him hearing such. Mr. Campbell wished to know if the Plan of Campaign was in operation on this estate, but witness declined to answer. Mr. Kilkelley delivered the decision of the court. They considered the cases proved. For intimidating Patrick Wade the defendants would ba sentenced to one month with hard labour. Patrick Ballin for intimidating Christopher Moonan would be imprisoned for focr months with hard labour, and at the expiration of that period shoul I find bail to be of good behaviour for a further period of three months. Fianigan was ordered to be sent to gaol for one month on the charge of intimidating Moonan. Mr. Redmond, M.P., was followed to and from Drogheda by cars full ot polico. Mayo. — A poor widow naniad Keaveney was recently evicted from her holding in Culleens. The p >or woman fell in a fit on the bail'ffs breaking into th" hovel a id was carried out unconscious and placed on a heap of chaff ia a fearful downpour of rain. Three helpless babes were by her side. The grabber was there in the persevi of a fel.ow natuei Convey, who purchased tne farm for the blackhearted landlord, Colonel K>iox. When the woman was restored from her swoou she went upon hor knees ia the teeming rain and cursed the man who deprived her and her little ones of their home. Tipperary. — When Doctor Tanner was being removed from Tipperary to Clonmel Gaol the police brutally attacked the people, and upwards of 20 were seriously injured by baton strokes. Father Michael Power was shoved off the platform, and a policeman raised a stick to strike him. Such conduct on the part of the police has never been equalled in Tipperary. At last meeting John Godfrey in the chiir, the following resolution, proposed by P. Fitzgerald, seconded by Mr. Healy, passed unanimously :— That we, the Town Commissioners of Tipperary, observe with indignation and horror the mean an'l brutal treatment extended to the Irish political prisoners by the English Government inspired by Lord Salisbury and his now notorious nephew, Mr. Bilfour ; tnat we undertake to tell those gentlemen that the mmaer ia which they are using their Coercion Act is a diggrace to civilisation, an! instead of ciushing the aims and aspirations of the people towards legislative free lorn, it is but a stimulus and a power to push onward the exertions of the people ia the face of all buffering until the grand goal of a n iti ju's rights is fought for and won. Tyrone. — At Cookstown Sessions recently John McGlade and James Keevan were charge I with assaulting a man named William Marsh ill. The asiauit wis proved to have been a most determined and brutal one. Yut McGUde was only sentence! to 14 days' imprisonment, und the cb-irge against K'evau dismissed I here is too much leniency exercised in Twelfth of Ju'y case*. As the tmin which runs bi twe n [)un,»a m)n ami Cooks»own was approaching Coalisla id St ition. ahorse belonging to Mr. Bums, of Billynakelly pottery, took fright, and ran down the Has in the direction of the oncoming train. I'he driver was thrown on the line. B )th were in terrible danger, but the engine was happily stopped in time. The excitement was intens-e find a subscription was made on the spot for the engine-driver, but he would not accept, stating he merely did his luty. At Grey,G >rey, before Messrs. M^Lcod and Millar, J >hn J. MV.lon, William P. D >yle, and Gregory Kavanagh were charge 1 at the prosecution of District-Inspector Holm- s with the intimidation of Lord Courtown's steward by pi\ venting him from selling pk-s in the f iir of Gorey on July 12. The cas^s had been adj .urned. Doctor Falconer, instrucei by John R. Coi per, Wexford, appeared for the Crown. Doctor Counsel, instructed by J. A, Sco»t, Gorey, appeared for the defendants. The court was densely crowded, aid great interest was manifested in the proceedings. William P. Doyle, Ciolgreany, and Edward Mordaunt, Monarnolu, were charged that they, on June 22, at Gorey, did take p»rt in a crimmal conspiracy to prevent certain persons from buying sheep from one John Johnson. And in a second count they were charged that they did, at Gorey, on the same day, try to induce the said John Johnson not to use a certain farm at Cullentra, which was formerly in the pogseision of Edwanl Mordaunt. Dr. Falconer (instructed by Mr. Cooper) appeared for the Crown, and Dr. Counsel (instructed by Mr. Scott) appeared for the defendants. Samuel Jodnson, Kilcorkey, stated be was the brother of John Johnson, and rem'mberei the 22nd June. His brother had a cart with sheep in it. Mordaunt wai at the cart all day. Doyle was at the cart, but he was not there all Jay. Witness saw the police close by the cart. In cross-examination by l)r Counsel witness stated he had sold that day a heifer to John Johpson, Coolgreany, and bought cattle on hisown account, Heart-Constable McCormack, Gorey, stated that he was in the fair on thj 22nd of June last. He saw Mordauut there also, and saw him stand in iront of Johnson's cart. He saw Doyle take Moriauat's pim-e, getting in iront of the cart where Mordaunt had been. He heard buyers ask JohDson what price he wanted for the sheep, Mordaunt dre«v close to the buyer and pointed

hiß fingers at the sheep in the cart, and touching the buyer with a switch on the leg. The buyer looked at him and Mordaunt ahook hi« head towards the sheep, when the buyer went away. The court adjonrned. Waterford.— The cattle and pigs of persoDs holding boycotted farms remain unsold at all the fairs and markets held in this County. Nationalis s cannot complain of the support given them by the cattle and pig dealers in Waterford Cappcquin League, which was dissolved by mutual consent some months ago wi'h the <>bj >ct of trimming its ranks and having a more national spirit infused therein. Y\*<* bc-n reorganise. Ttie people are full of enthusiasm. Ninety new m -mb rs wi-re enro'Ud and people seven and eight miles fiom Cappoquin attended. W. M. Ardagh, <^f;Clonea, Dungarvau, has decorated the police station at Kilmacthomas with writs against his Ballyhussa tenantry for rent due. It appears the tenants were always punctual in the payment of their rents They have now offered to purchase their holdings at from 14 to 20 years purchase, and it is expected the landlord will agree. "WeStllieath.— The potato is a splendid crop, not the slightest trace of disease to be discovered on the stalks or leaves, while this time last year its effects were clearly and decidedly manifest. The hay crop was first-class. There has been so little wheat sown about here that there is no occasion to refer to it as a general crop. The same observation will also apply to barley. Vegetables of every description are in abundance, and the yield of every kind of fruit is large. Rev. P. Gallagher presided at last Rochford League meeting. The following resolutions were passed : — That we consider the action of the Clonmel Grand Jury, in awarding such enormous sums to the policemen for alleged injuries, as a direct incentive to Balfour's bullies to wantonly baton inoffensive people. That we rejoice to learn that the true and good men of Tyrellspasa parish are about to establish a local branch of the League,' which will enable them to sustain with vigour and effect the principles of Irish nationality. ~Wexford. — The Star Chamber Inquiry, which.,bas been held at Gorey lor some time, was resumed in the Courthouse by Mr. Considine, R M., after nearly a week's postponement, Early on Monday morning some of the Gorey police proceede t to a place called Knockadagne, about eight miles from Gorey, and served a summons to appear before the Star Chamber on that day on a man named Thomas Daly, who was at the time engaged at his hay. Mr. Daly was driven into Gorey on the police car, and presenting himself to the Star Chamber, refused to be sworn. The magistrate explained the consequences of his refusal and Daly told him he was ready to go to ga r >l. Mr. Daly was c'osely questioned as to whether any person had been tampering with him previous to his attendance. Nofurth:r effort was made to endeavour to compel him to give evidence, aud he returned home in the evening. "Wicklow. — There is a rumor that Mr. Parnell intends to visit India, as his health is again a cause of anxiety to his frienc's, and the climate may have a beneficial effect on his over-strained and disturbed system arising our of the Times ComniiSHon. Mr. Parnell presided recently at the liou^e uf Commons at a very important meeting of the members of the Insi p'lrty, at whicn the suggested constitution of the liish Tenants' Defence L2ague, drawn up by Mr. Sexton, was brought forward, explained by him, and considered by the meeting. After some debate it was unanimously agreed that the scheme should be put forward for adoption at the meeting of the new League, to bo held in the cour-e of about a month, and thac in the meantime copies of the constitution should be forwarded to the Bishops and clergy and the principal laymen in Ireland.
