Mr. Parnell does not like being prosecuted at all. He

is so -angry that he has let the cat out of the bag, and avowed that he cares very little for the Irish tenantry, except as agents to help on revolution. In a speech on Sunday at Galway, after declaring that the House of Lords were primarily responsible for the murder of Lord Mountmorres, and denouncing the "pretended humanitarian Buckshot Forster," who, when the Peers smote him on one cheek, turned the other, Mr. Parnell stated that he never would have "taken off his coat and gone to work" for the -tenant-farmers, but that he saw in the agrarian movement "a foundation for legislative independence." In the evening, at a banquet, he went still further, and, as we imagine, for the first time completely stepped over legality by declaring that,—" I feel convinced that if you ever call upon the Americans in another field and in another way for help, and if you can show them that there is a fair and good chance of success [enthusiastic cheering], you will have their assistance, their trained and organised assist- ance, for the purpose of breaking the yoke which encircles you." That is a promise that if Ireland will rise in insurrection, America will help her, and cannot be answered by paper argu- ments. Mr. Parnell is either talking rant, which is not his custom, or he is incurring the frightful responsibility of inciting his countrymen to revolt.
