BANQUET TO MR. TRAIN. The Cork papers report a banquet which has been given at Cork by Mr. Train to a number of Roman Catholic clergymen and some gentlemen connected with the local journals. We are told that the gather- ing was "characterised by that vastness ef conception which our distinguished visitor acquired upon the sum- mits of the Rocky Mountains," and that the banquet was designed to form a sort of gastronomic cable of communication between the Catholics of the United States and those on this aide the Atlantic." "The Press" was the first toast given, Mr. Train observing that he would for once elevate it to the drees circle, instead of being consigned to the bottomless pit, as was the usual cuatom." In toasting "the Catholic Church Mr Train said that his admiration for the Church and ita wonderful power culminated, as he mentioned at one of his lectures in Cork, at Rome, at the canonisation of the Japanese martyrs. (Applause.) When five hundred bishops dreased in purple, five thousand priests dressed in black, came up from the uttermost parts of the earth, and sat down with one hundred cardinals dressed in scarlet at the great banquet of the Pope, who, dressed in white, spoke in the name of-three hundred millions of his nock to Christendom and the nation—(cheers)—some day, I said, I will buy a Palace for the Holy Father on the banks of the Hudson—(loud applause)-and when the hour arrives I will carry out my long-thought-of pro- ject of establishing a great Catholic colony on five hundred thousand acres of corn and wheat lands surrounded by the Platte, the Loup, the Elkhom, and the Missouri, in God's great garden there in America, between Omaha, the half-way station to China, and Columbus, the future capital of America, when its population in one generation more is larger than all Norway, Sweden, Denmark. Belgium, Portugal, Franee, and Great Britain combined. (Loud cheers.) There in Nebraska, the centre of a hundred States, and a population of one hundred millions. (Cheers.) He informed his guests that he had caused the withdrawal from the Cabinet, and perhaps from public life, of the persistent enemy of Ireland, Lord Derby. Mr. Train reviewed his prospects of being returned to the White House, and promised, says the Cork Examiner, in the event of his being elected Preai- dent, to furnish every one present, with a return ticket to Washington to attend his inaugural banquet. Songs in several foreign languages were sung, one in modem Greek, being, it is said, much admired. The vice- chairman, a Catholic priest, named Buckley, gave a song illustrative of an Irish jig, the invention of which, he alleged, was variously attributed to Adam and ling David.
