The head centre, or the common hangman, ia in&nitely more preferable to the dis 30greeabltlness that waita a proceaa aerver in the performance of hia duty. I waa mistaken for one of the gentlemen to-day, and the imprecations heaped upon my devoted held in the spce of a few minutea would, if they could have bsen collected, have been found nnmeroua and anong enough to have formed the stock-in-trade of a new infernal region. If I had not bean under the protective winga of an inapeotor, J. M. O'Brien, and hia 120 oonatablea, I fear violent handa would have been laid on me, and my chattering would have been stoped.

PUBLIC MEETING IN CARDIFF. On Thursday evening a public meeting waa held in the Crown Court of the Town.w.u., Cardiff, for the purpose of raieing aubacriptiona for the relief of the diatresa in Ireland. The Mayor of Cardiff (Mr. J. M Connochie) preaided. and amongst thaae proseDt were the Rev. C. J. Thompson, the Rev. G. A. Jonea, the Rev. Father Kiohardaon, the R-jV. Father HMriaoa, the Rev.

The MAYOR, in opening the meeting, aaid the aubjeot which had brought tham there that night waa one of painful importance. No man deserving of the name could hear the cry o! the atarvmg women and children without feeling that he mnat do aomething to allevittta the dlMt There could, he thought, be no doubt that aome parte of Ireland were in a terrible state, and that no single district waa free from hunger. Mr. Simpeon, a. town councillor of Liverpool, who lately viaited Ireland, had atated that he found the people living upon aeaweed aud a kind of ahell 6th found upon the rocka, which waa gathered by them. It waa absolntely necessary, he said, that relief ahould be aent at once to prevent atarvatian, which, in hia view, waa imminent. The Duohesa of Marlborough had aent ooc vision to every heart by her womanly appeal, and she aaid that ao great waa the want and suffering that, aniesa apecial and extensive enbrta were made, thousands of our Iriah fellow aubjecta would jhave to go through a!Ij) the horrorst of & famine before the year waa over. The newspapera teemed with atoriee of sunering perfectly appalling in them. selves, aad a description given by the tpcoial correspondent of the TeLegraph of two soenea he witnessed, were truly he<u't- Mnding. Could Engliahmen Mid Welshmen who gloriec in the saying that according to the English law no man could atarve—couid they ait with their arms folded while thouaanda were by inches, aa the laying waa? Aeaurejiy not. (Applauae ) The appeal they were making that bad nothing to do with politico or religion; it began with humanity, and it ended with humanity, and he knew his Cardiff townsmen too well to fear for a moment that they would not do their duty. The aad state of Ireland had only to be known to touch all hearta. He had jast made an appeal in favour of the Rowland Hill Memorial Fucd, which he hoped would be responded to; but the claima of atarving men, women, aud children were, he admitted, a; hundredfold creater The value of a popular aubaoription waa that aH ahonid give little, and he was coBndent that no one would refuse to give. 'Applause.) In conclusion the mayor called upon Mr. Burns to propose the nrat resolution. ;fir. J BURNS said that in considering the dia. tre.iB'ia ireland, it waaadviaabia that theyahoald limit themeeivea entirely to the social side of the Queaticc, and have noting to do whatever with pciitica or religion. Therefore, he aaked what waa the preaent atato of Ireland, and how ooutd the wanta cf the IrL-h people be beat supplied? He found in aome quu- tera doubta were entertained aa to whether the destitution waa so eericua a.
