P'iu,-There is always, to.my mind, some thing peculiarly interesting in the Pop-gun "Wars waged by angry correspondents in a* country newspaper. Your little paper is, an > early battle-field. The manner in which our two Williams are torpedoing each other is painful in the extreme. After a long un happy acquaintance, they arp now penning each other to death, while jail the gods in Cumberland look on with fear and trembling. They are both builders of| bridges, and William No. 1 think*, and said, that if he couldn't build a bridge better than William No. 2, he would get a walking-stick and walk out of the d country. Wi'liam No. 1 is " Anti-Humbug " William No. 2, vis " Anti-Sneak." Now sir, jl don't pretend to be a judge of bridge-building or letter ...

Odds and Ends According to the Herald, the estimated value of ratable property in Sydney, beats that of Melbourne by about £6,600,000. The New South Wales iremen who are visiting- Victoria on the New South Wales and Victorian railways,have been granted free passes. They will leave on the 17th inst., and it is expected that eleven brigades will ba represented at the Melbourne demonstra tion. It is not generally know that the marriage Prince Leopold will draw the Royal Family into closer alliance with Ireland.! Yet such is the fact. The uncle of the Princess Helt*n of Waldeck is m«rried to an Irish lady . Prince Leopold's future aunt was a Miss Gage, daughter of a clergyman who lived near Dublin. Nearly twenty years ago Prince Aldert of Waldeck met the lady at Bonn, and fell desperately in love with her. Prince Albert was inconsolable, and marriage being indispensable the ceremony took place quietly in Dublin and. Miss Ga^e became the Countess v<>n Rhoden. Two years ago ...

ifcpiM few, vPublifihed every, Friday Morning. ' FRIDAY, MAY 12, 1882. IT is surprising that people will not awaken to their senses until blood is shed. The Conservatives of England have held the reins long enough. They have - monopolised and spoli ated the pec pie, from whom all power springs. The battle, .the struggle for equal rights since and before the year 1848 is now being recognised in Ireland's favour. You may conquer a country, but you can not conquer the people. Nationality is supreme in all countries. Whe ther Turk or Jew each sticks for'his Jerusalem. And why not Ireland ? From the molestation in Henry the Second's time until now; from the plunder or robbery by one country from another, Ireland, the victim, has ever since been 4 a sore"[thorn in the ribs of England. And very justly so. She has supplied Eng land with soldiers, generals, gover nors, patriots ; and, in foreign lands, England and Ireland-even Scot land^-are united. Shoulder to shoulder they fight for one co...
