".[he PrlesU ot Ireland DinoQoce P�rii�Il From Their Pulpits, and Warn Bi> Sop-potters Not to Defv Thrlr Kplrlloal Sup-perloTS-A Stormy Scene Wttnc�sed In the MeeUax SatntdsT. LoNDOS, Dec. 7.-A letter from the Archbishops and Bishops was read in all tbe Catholic churches in Ireland, alter the eelebratioDs of masses to day. At St. Col-man's Cathedral, Queenstowo, after the letter had been read, Rev. Father Fislc addressed the congregation. He declared that it was no longer possible for Parnell to teraain at tbe head of tbe Irish party. He had disgraced, dishonored and degraded himself by his own acts, and oould not lead the smallest section of tbe Irish people. In refusing to recognize the authority of the Bishops Parnell waa doing incalculable mischief to the Irish canse, and performing the work of the enemy, and was rendering the people disunited and diatraoted. Tbe Mayor of Cork, after hearing of the session of tbe McCarthy party last eve-niog,^6ent tbe following dispatch to John O'Connor: 'Ireland wont allow England to select her.leader. This right belongs to Ireland. Tbe Irish wont stand Gladstone's dictations," At the Catholic church in Hitchells-towa the officiating priest, after reading tbe declarations of tbe Hierarchy, warned the supporters of Parnell throughout this district not to defy tbeir spiritual superiors. pabneli, loses gbodmd. The Irish members met at 1 o'clock yea. terday afternoon in the Committee room of the Hones of Commons. No one was allowed in tbe lobby adjoining the room. Even the courtesy extended to the press waa suspended, and no reporters were permitted In the vicinity or the place where the deliberations were taking place. Of course it it was knoirn that Mr. Gladstone had practically said that Parnell mast first be deposed before he would enter into negotiations. Id his letter to tbe Nationalists meeting Mr. Gladstone acknowledges the receipt of the two resolutions adopted by the Irish caucus. The reading of this letter was the signal for a noisy and disorderly scene, and an adjournment was taken. Ibe forty-five anti-Paraeilites met at 1 o'clock and elected Mr. McCarthy chairman. When Mr. McCarthy had aBsumed the chair the meeting proceeded to consider tbe following resolution: "We, members of the Irish Parliamentary party, solemnly renew our adhesion to the principle, in devotion to which we have never wavered, that the Irish party is and must always remain iadependent of all other parties. 'Further, we declare that we will never entertain any proposal for a settlement of tbe Home Rule queetioa except such as sstisfles tbe aspiratiocs of tbe Irish party and the Irish people." The resolulioD, which was proposed by Timothy Healy and seconded by Mr. "ex-ton, was unaoioioasly adopted. The result was immediately oommanicated to Mr. Gladstone. Upon learning what bad-been done Mr. Gladfetone exclaimed. Thank God, Home Rule is saved." parsell LOaKS his temper. It is not easy yet Co s'je tbe imtnensely mportant effect of the decisive split in the Irish party. Bulletins posted in the political clubs announcing the result of the Irish loeecing created great excitement. Par-neli's friends consider Gladstone's letter declining to receive the Irish delegates until Parnell bad been disposed was dictation, and will as such be resented by the Irish race everywhere. They arc particularly confident this letter will strengthen Farnell'e positioi in Ireland. Three or four times the debate between the Irishmen was so acriminous that it seemed that personal encounter was udavoidable. Tim Healy was in a most sarcastic mood, and goaded Parnell beyond endurauce. Once when Redmond was spealting of Gladstone, be named him as leader of the now Irish party. Healy was on his feet instantly, and said, "Who shall be its Trustees?" This direct allusion to one of the complications in Mrs. O'Shca's divorce le the blood rush to Parnell'a cheeks. He%ngrily protested against what he called daiitardly conduct; declared that Healy waa, insulting a defenseless woman, and called Healy a cowardly little scoundrel. it took a long time to restore order. the BITnATION reviewed. After the desertion of McCarthy and his forty five followers Parnell remained in the chair ut the original meeting, with tweDty-aeven aupporlen. After a power-fal appnl to the Irish people agklnit trkiton who tad deserted blm the meetlDg ended. The situation thus created Is most extraordinary. There are two Irish parties, with two ehairmen, two sets of officers. It is not elear yet who will pay tbe new party's bills. Parliament will riie early next week, aud all the Irish members will proceed to Ireland, wber^ the real battle will be fought. ' Tbe general opinion on both sides is that if O'Brien and Dillon had been here things would never: bave reached this unfortunate pass. Parnell declares his determination to fight. It is hoped tbat O'Brien and Dilloa will britig about a sett';enjent. If they do not the Hoate Rule, oaase ia ruined and the Nationalist movement virtually at an end. TO -ESTABLISn A OAILT PAPER. The eonferenee of tbe McCarthy party was prolonged until after midnikt last night. McCarthy presided throughout the session. A committee was appointed to draft a prospectus for a limited company to establish a daily newspaper in Ireland, to be devoted to tbe iotereit of the Nationalist party. It is probable that tbe Unittd Ireland will become a daily publication. The majnity party are keenly alive to the disadvantage of the leading Nationalist papers siding with Parnell, and tbe whole of the machinery of the National League being nuder bis control. They are hopeful, however, that the influence of the Bishops and priests will assist them to obtiin a popular verdict. Both sides are preparing for an immediate campaign in Ireland. McCarthy has addressed a circular to all the Irish members including Parnell, calling a meeting of the.party for 2 o'clcck tomorrow. Messrs. Gillbooly, P. 6'Briea, Carew and Mahone are still classed with tbe doubttuls. The strength, therefore, of tbe McCartbyites is 50, and tbat of tbe Par-nellites is 30. THE irish envoys ARRIVE AT hew york. New York, Deo. 7--O'Brien, Sullivan, Dillon, O'Connor and Gill, the Irish envoys to America, have arrived in this city from Chicago. They refused to be interviewed and all signed the following state-' ment for the press: "We regret to be obliged to oontlnue to maintain absolute ailenoa in the eircum-stanoea of tbe present niovement. We bave cabled our approval of Justin McCarthy as chairman of the Irish National party, and our earnest hope is tbat our colleagues and our people may see the way to acquiesce in that choice, and thus restore tba prisslees blessing of unity in our party. Whatever additional communication we may find ourselves at liberty to make to the public will be made collectively and will not be made so long as we can see any possibility of saving our country from a ruinoHS ooofliot. We would prefer that our views should suffer by ouv holding our tongues rather than that tba possibility of unity should be prejudiced by a single injudicious word at this painful moment."
