O'DONOVAN ROSSA AGAIN. Mr. O'Donovan Rossa is back in New York, eager for" business." He thipka that all the talk cf civilised warfare is trash." If Ireland take the field, her seaport towns will be bombarded, her villages burnt, her crops destroyed; and why should not Irishmen have the right to lay English cities in ashes ? England has no rights in Ireland except those which force gives to the robber." The reporter of the New York herald judiciously asked whether these epirited reprisals are to be undertaken before Ireland goes to war, and Mr. Rossa announced generally that he had no scruples. Irish rebels have always been too honourable, and they have always failed." There is a residuum of theso honourable and scrupulous men amongst the trustees of the Skirmishing Fund" itself, and. Mr, O'Leary, "who resides in Paris," is singled out as very mucli so." This casual remark stirs quite a warm interest in Mr. O'Leary of Paris. Oae would fain know, in order to lc,ve him. There are grounds even for hoping that the truculent Rossa himself is not such a -villain as he boasts. Wiien be broke uo the interview, hurrying home to comfort a sick wife, a Fenian leader who bad been present considerably diluted his fiery words. "Rossa," said this candid gentleman, is a very good-natured fellew, who has never harmed any one, and would not hurt a child. His friends don't look on him as a desperate man in any sense of the word." This view is the more likely to be correct, since bis enemies in Canada emphatically endorse it. The amicus curiae, who wishes his name to bo with- held, thinks that talk about dynamite, "and that kind of thing, lowers the tone of the movement." It is imprudent and thoughtless." Rossa is too im- pulsive, and we are coming to a time when that kind of thing may be ruinous." What the Skirmishing Fund requires at tbia most critical time is a sensible and dignified policy. Rossa must yield his" personal crotchets for the common good, or Mr. O'Leary, of Paris, and his like will be discontented. All this is vastly droll. The Skirmishing Fund has gathered £ 2000 worth of paper dollars, and the contemplating of this enormous sum is magnetising tbe trustees. They cannot decide what to do with it. L.
