OUTRAGE AT PORTADOWN
On the 26th ult., upwards of one thousand of the brethren walked into town in "martial array," as if in defiance of the authorities, who found it necessary to increase the police force very considerably and have a company of the 3rd Regiment from Armagh. The Orangemen attacked the police, some of whom were seriously injured, one of them, I believe, dangerously. A terrible riot ensued, and the Riot Act had to be read by Mr. Miller, R.M., the utmost forbearance having been used towards the mob, and completely without effect. In fact, they seemed to gain confidence by the forbearance shown them, and is was only when things assumed a very serious and threatening aspect that strong measures had to be taken. Several of the ringleaders have been arrested, and the police are very active in their endeavours to have more of them made amenable.
BANQUET IN BELFAST TO THE LORD MAYOR OF DUBLIN
BELFAST, MONDAY NIGHT- The Lord Mayor of Dublin and the Lady Mayoress were entertained in the Music Hall here this evening by the Presbyterian body of Belfast, in return for the compliment paid by his lordship to the general Assembly at the recent meeting in Dublin. The Moderator of the General Assembly occupied the chair. The proceedings passed off with great eclat, the entertainers being joined by gentlemen of other religious communities.
[The Lord Mayor of Dublin at this time was William Lane Joynt, son of William Joynt and Arabella Lane. The Lady Mayoress was Jane Russell Joynt, dau. of John Russell and Hannah Myles.]
AFFAIR BETWEEN THE POLICE AND CIVILIANS- At the Head Office on Monday, three men named John Molloy (labourer), John Carey (labourer) and James Carey (sawyer), were charged by Acting Inspector Dagg, with having caused a disturbance in Thomas-street on Saturday night. It appears that the prisoners had been drinking in Mrs. Andrew's public-house, where a disturbance ensued, which caused the police to interfere. The prisoners having been brought outside, a large crowd collected, and stones were thrown repeatedly at police. Inspector Flowers and four horse police then arrived and were also assaulted by the crowd, who vigorously fired stones at them. One of the policemen named Byrne, was struck with a stone, and so seriously injured, that it was necessary to remove him to hospital. One of the horses was also injured. Some of the police drew their revolvers and formed square, and thus kept off the crowd, while others brought the prisoners to Newmarket station. Some of the principal disturbers escaped and were not since arrested. The prisoners were fined one pound each, and one pound costs.
AWARD TO THE METROPOLITAN POLICE- The £1,000 voted by the Legislature to the Dublin Metropolitan Police for their services during the recent Fenian movement, was on Thursday last distributed amongst the force.
THE IRISH BUTTER TRADE
We are glad to learn from the Cork papers that the prosperity of the butter trade, for which that city has long been a chief emporium, has not been lessened by the ill-natured strictures recently published upon Irish butter in some English journals. It is true, indeed, that the Cork butter merchants have, to a great degree, lost their hold upon the London market, but this had been owing not to any falling off in the quality or make of the article they supply, but to the fact that they have found a better market for their produce in the manufacturing districts of England. It now comes out that the attacks upon the quality and makeup of Irish butter to which the metropolitan papers gave such prominence, originated from the jealousy of the London butter trade, which previously engrossed the supply of the manufacturing districts. Every branch of Irish enterprise and industry has suffered from English jealousy and the false representations to which 'unscrupulous rivals resort. It is, therefore, the duty of the Irish press to meet such misrepresentations with prompt exposure. In the recent instance, the false reports did some temporary injury, because the refutation of them was too long delayed.
DIOCESE OF CLOYNE- The solemn dedication of the new Catholic church at Kanturk is fixed for Sunday, 20th October. His Eminence, Cardinal Cullen, Lord Archbishop of Dublin, will preach the dedication sermon. More than half of the prelates of Ireland have already signified their intention of being present.
ST. VINCENT'S HOSPITAL, STEPHEN'S-GREEN, DUBLIN
The Hospital contains ONE HUNDRED BEDS,
constantly occupied by instructive cases. A large Ward for the reception of
Children affords opportunities for studying the Diseases of Early Life.
Connected with the Hospital is an extensive Dispensary, where abundant means are
presented for the acquisitions of Medical and Surgical knowledge; and also a

Dissections on Tuesday, 1st October.
Dissections under the
superintendence of the Professors of Anatomy, and the Demontrators, Dr. Hayes,
Dr. Fennelly, Dr. Laffen and Dr. Meldon.
A GOOD LANDLORD
The Irish peasantry have been
frequently charged by their enemies with being an intractable race, insensible
to kindness, ever-indulging in vague desires for the possession of their
landlord's properties-in a word, a race to be ruled with an iron rod. Wherever
the opportunity occurs, facts give the lie to such statements. A kind resident
landlord, mindful of the duties as well as the rights of property, is, alas! a
scarce luxury among us; but when one occasionally appears, where is he more
honoured and loved than in Ireland? The public prints recorded last week one of
those agreeable but too few re???? between landlord and tenant in this country-
we allude to the festivities at Balyna, the seat of the Right Hon. Richard More
O'Ferrall, on the coming of age of his son. Such celebrations we know are
sometimes delusive; but we have the testimony of the respected parish priest,
the Rev. Mr. Treacy, in addition to information from other sources, to convince
us that these rejoicings but rendered justice to the worth of Mr. O'Ferrall, and
to the feelings of affection entertained for him by his tenantry. The
proceedings were of the most interesting character, and their success was
greatly promoted by the unwearied exertions of the excellent schoolmaster of the
district, Mr. John Traynor.
THE GENTRY OF IRELAND
With some honourable exceptions ,we
believe, the gentry of Ireland are the most useless of their class in the entire
world. They have no national aspirations, no prominent desire to exalt the
country in either literature, arts, commerce, or manufactures. They live in it,
but their conduct does not prove that they look upon it as their native land. In
other nations the gentry feel themselves to be a part of the population, and
they often identifythemselves with any cause which will exalt the people and
bring happiness to their homes.
FENIAN RESCUE IN MANCHESTER
MANCHESTER, THURSDAY- This morning the
Fenian prisoners were brought up at the City Police Court for examination before
Mr. Fowler, the stipendiary, and a full bench of magistrates. They were brought
from Belle Vue jail in two police vans, escorted by a troop of Hussars and two
companies of the 57th infantry, the latter being conveyed in and on two
omnibuses. There was also an omnibus load of armed policemen. An unusual number
of people witnessed the procession to the court. In the police court the
infantry were placed-they occupied the entrance hall below. The hussars were
kept in readiness at the Albert-street Police Barracks, close by. Round about
the courthouse, and in front of it particularly, there was a strong body of
police, armed with loaded revolvers, which they carried in holsters suspended
from a belt.
MANCHESTER FRIDAY NIGHT- The
investigation was resumed to-day. The prisoners who had been kept all night in
the Albert-street police station guarded by a strong military escort, were again
brought into court handcuffed in couples. A mass of evidence was produced
implicating several of the persons in the affair, but little new was absolutely
adduced. Some amusement was occasioned by the examination of an amateur
photographer, who, under a rigid cross-examination, said he was very likely the
author of the sensational pictures in this week's Illustrated Police News. He
saw Allen caught, and also identified several of the prisoners as being present
at the attack on the van. Mr. Higgin, for he prosecution, intimated that the
evidence he had anticipated in proving that the prisoner M'William was present
was not forthcoming, whereupon the prisoner was at liberty. The other twenty-six
prisoners were then removed to the Albert-street police station, where they will
be kept under military guard, and again brought up for further examination this
MANCHESTER, SATURDAY- The twenty-seven
prisoners charged with the murder of Sergeant Brett were again brought up at the
City Police Court to-day under military guard The prisoners were placed in the
dock handcuffed as before.

A Fenian funeral which took place in Limerick last Sunday, gave occasion for a demonstration which seems to have startled the authorities not a little. A gasfitter named Kelly had been arrested last year as a Fenian suspect and only released, like young Stowell, when in a dying state. It was resolved to bury him with honours of a patriot and a martyr to the cause; and in the teeth of the Habeas Corpus suspension the resolve was boldly and fully carried out. There was nothing secret in the movement- it was carried out in broad day, and united in by hundreds at the outset, but by the time the procession reached the graveyard it had been increased to thousands. The heads and trappings of the horses which drew the hearse, as well as the vehicle itself, were decorated with laurels and evergreens; behind came the coffin, containing the remains, borne on the shoulders of six men who each carried green boughs, the coffin itself being also strewn over with wreaths of laurel and other emblematic symbols of nationality. Then followed over 300 young and old men in regular military order, four abreast, nearly every one having beard clips on the chin, such as is worn by "Irish-Americans." The flagways at both sides of the street were thronged.
RELEASE OF FENIANS- On Thursday three young men, who had been incarcerated for long terms in Mountjoy Prison and Donegal Jail, on suspicion of connexion with the Fenian movement in this country, left by the Inman steamer, City of Baltimore, for New York. Their names are M'Inerny, O'Hara and Murphy.
The coroner's inquest on the policeman Brett, which had been adjourned pending the investigation in the police-court, was resumed on Tuesday. The verdict returned was "wilful murder" against Allen and others unknown. It is feared or pretended in Manchester that further loss of life may arise from the committal of the prisoners. Threatening letters have been received by several parties who showed a vindictive feeling against them; the prisoners themselves exhibited no sign of despondency on learning the decision of the magistrates to send them for trial. On leaving court they sang in chorus an Irish song, and while passing to the prison gave three cheers for Kelly, Deasy and Ireland. So frightened are the authorities that half a regiment of foot have been quartered within the gaol to help the officials guard two dozen Irishmen!
LETTER FROM CAPTAIN KELLY
Mr. J.E. Kelly, who was convicted of high treason for he affair at Kilcloony, writes: "Milbank, Sept. 24, 1867. DEAR___ It has only this instant been announced to me that I am to be sent to Australia. The notice is so short that I despair of having the pleasure of ever beholding a familiar face on earth again unless- which is beyond the bounds of possibility- that (erasure by prison governor) - some friend take a trip to the antipodes to see me. I have only time to ask you to give my regards to Peter Crowley's sister, and your mother and brothers. Give my love to all. Omit no one. I am in good health, and to Ireland am the same as to you always. EDWARD.
DISCHARGE OF FENIAN PRISONERS
Patrick Heybyrne, the barber, who was
tried and found guilty of treason felony at the Special Commission, and
sentenced to two years' imprisonment with hard labour, was discharged on Monday
last from Kilmainham Prison, the term of his sentence having expired.
A paper from the sunny South publishes an account of a dinner given by Mr. Herbert , of Muckross, to 300 of his tenantry. The cause of this entertainment, it appears, was to commemorate an auspicious domestic event, the birth of an heir to the Muckross estate. Fraternization of this kind between landlords and tenants are no doubt very agreeable things, and also politic in these auspicious times, when rumours are afloat about Fenian privateers, and strange opinions are in circulation about the rights of those great landed proprietors who hold by confiscation their Irish estates. The entertained are described as "respectable," and this adjective is no doubt used to qualify the fact that the guests dined not in the mansion but in Captain Herbert's stables! The report of the stable banquet does not inform us whether the stock, well-fed and well-housed steeds were turned out to make room for those who submitted to the degradation of dining in horse stalls. We hope never again to hear of a landlord entertaining his tenants in such places as stables-if they are not worthy of a welcome to the dining-hall of the mansion, they should scorn to accept any servile or inferior position.--Dundalk Express.
DEATH OF DEAN OF CLOYNE- We regret to
announce the death of the venerable Dean of Cloyne, the Very Rev. Dr. Russell,
P.P., V.G. He expired on Monday at his residence in Cloyne. His death was very
sudden. He assisted at a station in the morning and returned to his residence
about one o'clock. He was taken ill almost immediately after reaching home, and
sank rapidly until two o'clock when he died. Dr. Russell had attained the ripe
age of seventy-four years, and had given fifty years of active and useful
service in the ministry.--Cork Examiner.
THE MURDER OF THE LIFE GUARDSMAN
On Monday, John Groves was brought up
at Bow-street, charged with the murder of M'Donnell, the Life Guardsman. A body
of nine mounted police, eight constables and an inspector accompanied the van.
Several constables rode inside and outside the vehicle, and two cabs, also
crowded with policemen, followed. The constables were all armed with cutlasses.
Mr. Poland, instructed by the Treasury, recapitulated the evidence already
taken, and asked for a remand, which was granted.
SEARCH FOR KELLY AND DEASY
A search has been made in all the Irish
quarters of Oldham for the Fenian Kelly, who was rescued from custody in
Manchester on the 18th ult. Although the search was unsuccessful, the
authorities had good grounds for proceeding to it, for Kelly has been well known
in the town where he had lived, in fact, for some time previous to his
apprehension. Letters addressed to a person named Kelly had frequently come to
the post-office, and Mr. Andrews, the post-master, has recognized the likeness
of the escaped Fenian to be that of the person who called for these letters.
FENIANISM IN ENGLAND
MANCHESTER, FRIDAY- The defence of the
men implicated in the recent Fenian rescue was resumed at the police court
yesterday. The prisoners are twenty-four in number, Daniel Reddin, a pprehended
in Liverpool in Wednesday, being now added to the original batch. The
examinations of witnesses lasted all day, and had not yet concluded when the
court rose. In every instance the defence consisted in proving an alibi, which
in some cases appear to be well grounded. Half a dozen workmen were called, who
said that Bryan was at his work with them the whole day. Two or three witnesses
said that Scally was working on a tailor's shop-board the whole of the day the
outrage occurred, and evidence of a similar kind was given in some of the other

On Friday, V.H. Burgess Esq., Hon. Secretary of the Flax Extension Association of Belfast, visited Islandbawn Mills, near this town, for the purpose of inspecting the new breaking and scotching machines lately invented by Mr. Samuel Brindley. After witnessing eh machines working, and securing samples of the flax operated on in his presence, he expressed his approbation and delight at the discovery.--Tipperary Advocate.
ORANGE OUTRAGE AT ARVA.
Five of the Orange party have been apprehended for the wanton and barbarous outrage perpetrated on a man named Quinn (convenient to the place where Drum was shot nearly two years ago) on the 27th ult. He was on his way home from Arva fair, when he was followed by a party of eight or eleven, and brutally beaten to such a degree that little if any hopes are entertained of his recovery. Quinn was beaten so barbarously that his skull is broken and a portion of the cerebrium visibly protruding from under the scalp.--Anglo-Celt.
DEATH OF REV. JOHN KEATING, P.P.- The Rev. John Keating P.P., Crossbeg, departed this life on this day week in the fifty-second year of his age, having laboured for twenty-two years as a pious and zealous priest. On Sunday his remains were removed to Crossbeg; where they were followed by a large number of mourning friends from Wexford and vicinity. On Monday, the high mass and office for the repose of his soul were celebrated in the church of Crossbeg. The ceremonies were presided over by the Most. Rev. Dr. Furlong, Lord Bishop of this diocese, and were attended by about forty clergymen.--Wexford People.
ORANGE OUTRAGES AT PORTADOWN- Last Saturday night the house of Joseph Brennan and Thomas M'Convill of Portadown were wrecked by the Orange rabble between twelve and one o'clock. Their doors were kicked in and windows smashed with large stones, their lives threatened and ordered to leave or they would be shot the next time.
THE PRICE OF BREAD IN DUBLIN
SIR- You mentioned in the Freeman of
yesterday that in consequence of the rise in flour, the bakers of Manchester had
advanced the price of the best bread to 9d. for the 4 lb. loaf. The Dublin
bakers have been more "smart"- to use an Americanism- for they did
this months ago; they afterwards got up to 9 1/2 d., "small by
degrees," and since Monday week are charging 10d. for the 4 lb loaf, by no
means of the best quality. I firmly believe there are no just grounds for this
great advance in the price of the staff of life, for wheat is very little dearer
than it was twelve months ago, while bread is higher by at least 20 per cent;
but the butchers have been so successful in maintaining their exorbitant
charges, I suppose the bakers have thought it right to follow their example.

At the Portadown petty sessions on Monday last, a lad named Hamill, one of an Orange drumming party, was awarded two months imprisonment for assaulting a Catholic priest-the Rev. Mr. Weeny-at the door of the Catholic chapel. Father Weeny interceded to have the punishment mitigated, but the magistrates said, however creditable and humane it was for the Rev. Mr. Weeny to make the application, they could not acceded to it, as they felt bound to visit the offence with the higher penalty in their power. If this example were generally followed, there would be an end of Orange or other party disturbances in Ulster.

FENIAN EXCITEMENT IN QUEENSTOWN
From whatever cause, there is renewed vigilance on the part of the authorities at this port. The detectives seem to keep a sharp look-out for persons of suspicious appearance, and the practice of searching steamers calling at Queenstown is being renewed, but as yet without result. The garrisons of the several forts have, we understand, been recently strengthened, and the Trafalgar is expected to be permanently places on the station in addition to the Mercury, at present doing duty as guardship.--Cork Examiner.
FENIAN DEMONSTRATION IN NEW YORK.
On the 8th instant the parade and review of the Fenian regiments took place in Jones' Wood, New York. The New York Herald, describing the affair, says:- At ten o'clock in the morning, some 300 strong, the Fenian Brigade mustered in Washington-square, under, the command of General Spear and Colonel Lennox, as staff officers, while the several captains and lieutenants of the various companies were fully represented. Half an hour afterwards the line was formed again, into companies and "marched through the town." The regiment, accompanied by their numerous friends and followers, there took the Third-avenue cars to Jones' Wood, where they were reviewed by General Roberts, the president of the Brotherhood. In their passage through Broadway and the avenue there was not that amount of enthusiasm which used to be common when Fenianism was in the full tide of fever in New York. At Jones' Wood the regiment arrived at half-past one and paraded, after which they were dismissed for a time to enjoy themselves until the real business commenced. At four o'clock the regiment formed in line and went through a number of manoeuvres before President Roberts, who afterwards made a stirring address on the present state and future prospects of Fenians and Fenianism. The festive part of the ceremony was kept up until a late hour, and although there was much hilarity there was little noise or rioting to disturb the harmony of the gathering.
THE FENIAN TRIALS IN MANCHESTER
On Monday next the Special Commission
for trying the prisoners charged with the rescue of Kelly and Deasy, and the
shooting of Sergeant Brett, will open its proceedings in Manchester. The excited
state of public feeling there would suggest the propriety of a change of venue;
but we presume any attempt of the kind would be sternly and successfully
resisted by the legal advisers of the crown. The disgraceful panic which
prevails not only in Manchester, but throughout England generally, is not merely
unaccountable, but is in every way unworthy of a great country. The exploit of
rescuing Colonel Kelly and Captain Deasy was undoubtedly a daring one, but none
of the prisoners may have taken part in it; and even if there be grounds for
suspecting the contrary, it is a boasted maxim of British law that every man is
to be held innocent until he is proved to be guilty. Have the political
prisoners in Manchester been treated in accordance with that maxim? True to that
proverb, which unites cowardice and cruelty, the Manchester police endeavoured,
by their brutality towards helpless men, to make amends for their own utter
worthlessness in the hour of danger. We are no advocates of Fenianism, but we
are not insensible to the emotions of humanity to the principles of justice; and
we would be dead to every honourable feeling if we remained silent on such an
occasion and refrained from recording our emphatic, our indignant protest
against the infamous system of torture pursued towards our unhappy fellow
countrymen in Manchester. In China, and we suppose, in the dominions of that
"drunken old savage"-as described by the English press- the Emperor
Theodore of Abyssinia, persons on being arrested are placed in chains, and
kept so during their trials. But shall it be said that these things are done in
England-liberty-loving, enlightened England? Has it come to this in the land of
parliaments, newspapers, and Bible societies? Can a handful of miserable Fenians
so terrify mighty England, with her majestic ironclad, her invincible army, her
heroic volunteers? Alas! for proud Albion, such things have happened.
