A STORY OF PARNELL. INTERESTING FAMILY DISPUTE. Charles Stewart Parnell's sister (Mrs. Munroe Dickinson), in her life of the great Irish leader, stated that he was expelled from Cambridge in consequence of the suicide of a girl who had suffered through him. This statement has given rise to an interesting family dispute. Mr. H. T. Parnell, a brother, now writes to the Daily Xctrs from Geneva, forwarding copies of letters -Nla from Magdalene College. Cambridge, in which the authorities state that they cannot find a foundation for such a storv. Parnell. when an undergraduate of Mag- dalene College, was charged in 1869 with as- saulting a townsman, and was convicted by the magistrates. He was then rusticated by the college (writes one of the college authorities), and never returned into residence, though he was quite at liberty to do so. Mrs. Dickinson, asked for her authority, replied that Parnell was expelled from college, and that it had nothing to do with the assault for which he was rusticated." She gave as her authorities for the story," continues Mr. H. T. Parnell, "our mother and Sir Ralph Howard' (both dead), the latter of whom was so annoyed by it that he left our brother Charles no legacy in his will. As re- gards the nervous attacks, which Mrs. Dickin- son suggests her story explains. I myself have several times had to look after my brother dur- ing these attacks; he would tell me on such occasions that he saw such things as lions and tigers. I knew he had not been drinking: and I think these nervous attacks probably resulted from an attack of brain fever, which he had when sent as a small boy to a girls' school, where the girls, having discovered that he had an aversion to insects, used to tea:se him. If my brother ever mentioned the name of a girl in one of these attacks, as stated by Mrs. Dickin- son, it may have been the girl most prominent in teasing him. In consequence of this attack of brain fever, he never went to a public school.
