This is a day of great rejoicing in Ireland. Over That England is practically withoub a and this is dae entitely to the taken by Parnell and bis noble followers. Irishmen mast by large meetings show their appreciation of the benefits bestowed ou their native laud by the Irish members of Parliament. They have disorganized and demoralized the English Ministry aud to-day the country is without a govern- and. when the two great parties of England ily at each othcw throata it is a proud day for Ireland. The Irish pcoplo present an unbroken solid is marching steadily on toward Irish liberty. it is gladdening that the despoiler of human and who has practiced every wrong aud and who has outraged every civil aud conatitutioaal right has been forced to the wall.

WO Tho People's Light and HcaL Company I attack luit among the mass of to-duy located two one on the Par- Fiona's subjects dissensions are arisinp leyJarm aud the other on the Matthew and poials to the advance of our cause. The Irigh people are upriglil when honor is true when in- tegrity is they stand by Uc doomed and the accused when to pity is to and they arc loyal to liberty when to name her is almost to die. Flattery will never seduce tyranny cannot intimidate and to-day behold the grand spectacle of onr bleeding and suffering country alter 700 years ot1 cruelty and oppression still adhering to the principle of Irish sternly re- fusing to acknowledge the sway of the invader and proudly demanding the restoration of her long dcuied riglite. Then the green banner rearing. flash every sword to the hilt. On our side is virtue aud on their's is the Saxon and I hope and trust ihe day is not far distant wbcu the sinewy right arm of Irish liberty will hurl aside the bayonets of England's opposing mercenaries and haul down that hated and accused that clouds our country's sunshine and hoist to its places the til-colored emblem of free and united Ireland- The laud of ours will soon be free and that Irishmen will proudly BEG the light Qf our new republic. Irishmen strutfaled for the cause ol American liberty in in and in 1SG1 we find them in tho and in glancing over the illus- trious names of those who fought for the Union how often see the names of the the Nolaua aud a host of others. The Ameri- can heart swells with .1 feeling of gratitude for the and if we make no show of appreciation for those bravo men who are so grandly aiding us irom whom cau we expect sympathy Keioditary knovr you not would you ba free you must atrike your own Then the America will give you her sympathy and support. The sentiment is there dormant- It is waitingtobe aroused- Let the Irish then come together in great n ambers and then the feeling will come to the surface. Water may cease to ran or grass no longer but all true Irish- men will never forget the names of the men who died and those who are now struggling for Irish liberty. May God speed that day and we spare 110 effort to hasten it. Therefore all Irish Americans and lovers of liberty arc once more appealed to for assist- ance at this critical time. Let this appeal meet with a ready and generous response. Other cities arc alive to the and let it not be said that Bradford will be backward ia the good work. J. MUBIMIY. Jan. Taylor lease.
