A FAILURE. The of the Internationalists in New York which has caused so much sensation there, came oif on Sunday T>e-, 17Ha,l,Uv™non«n[or^than disappointment; writes the conespondent of 1 he Times, and who thus con- tmues :— There was but a small turn out, only about 2 000 persons being in line, while thorough order was main- tained. The composition of the processions was not of a character to impress the spectators very favourably. In the preliminary arrangement on the day before, the irrepressible George Francis Train appeared with a do- nation of 40 dols. towards the fund, his telegram ifrom yincinnati sending the money being signed by him as next I resident of the United States." In the rine appeared representatives of nearly every branch of political mountebankism known in this country, ihe procession formed at noon at Cooper Institute, vast numbers of spectators filling the streets through which it was to pass and also those in the neighbourhood of the Institute. At half-past two the line moved, a band at the head play- ing a dirge. Following them was a detachment of negro troops and then a body of women. In the front rank of the.ie were the female brokers, Mesdames Woodhull and Claffin, dressed in gaudy style, with broad crimson scarfs. The latter carried a banner wit)1 the inscription, Social and Political Equality for both Sexes." In this body was a number of French women, the red predominating in their decorations and the unusual sight of a band of women courage- ously tramping through the mud in solemn procession elicited boisterous cheering from the crowd. Then there were the Cuban insurgent junta, thinly represented, and following them a corps of drummers and the cata- falque. This bore three coffins and was drawn by six horses, a dozen refugees from Paris acting as pall bearers, among them M. Megy, ex-Commandant of Fort Issy, and M. Latour..Many persons uncovered their heads as the catafalque passed. Latour was dressed in the full uniform of a French General of Division, and carried the red flag with the inscrip- tion, Lihcrte, Ej<alite, Fratcrnite." Besides the Internationalist societies there were the French Legion," Painters' Union, Bricklayers' Union, and Cabinet-makers' Union also some Fenians, among them the refugee, Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa. The Communiste, Mrs. Frances Rose M'Kinley, rode in a carriage õf which there were several in the line. Among the banners promi- nently appeared that which was captured last Sunday when the procession was broken up by the police bear- ing the'motto, The spirit of the Commune expands as theaxc is laid on the neck's of its martyrs there were also other banners, two bearing the words The world is our country to do good our religion also A nd they had all things in common The procession marched ovcr the designated route, and thlin dispersed without the slightest attempt at disorder but the im- pression left has been such that it is quite improbable that any similar procession will again be seen in New York. The Legislature at its next Session will pro- bably prohibit Sunday parades altogether.
