A "CORRESPONDENT" AT A FENIAN CONCLAVE. A hisrhly sensational account, furnished to a recent number of the New York Herald, by its London corre- spondent, of a Fenian conclave, at which he repre- sents himself to have been present, illustrates the sii ns to which that unfortunate class of men, foreign correspondents, are driven when they have to fill up their allotted space at oft-recurring intervals, whatever may be the dearth of news ('a) s the Pall Mall Gazette). The Herald correspond,ut had believed, like other people, that Feriiani in was at its last gasp. But he was destined to be undeceived. A friend undertook to convince him of the mistake by arranging for his appearance at a Fenian meeting. As utual in such cases, a trusty cabman was picked up in the street, who took them by such a devious route that our New York jnfSBS^anT, though few men know Irtudon better, quite lost himself, and was, in fact, across the river before he was aware of it. There he submitted to be blindfolded, and, after a ride of about half an hour longer, arrival at his destination^— "one of those poor-looking streets that form the fringe of this great metropolis on every side," but where situ- ated be knew no more than if be had been set down half-way to California on the Pacific Railway." Pas- sing through a kind of wood-yard, and then a garden, he was ushered into a large room in whi h were seated some twenty-five men wearing black half-masks on the upper part ot their faces. They were well- dressed, and the majority of them, our readers will be surprised to learn, were English. Their visitor, as in honour bound, is reticent of their secrets, but he telfe us enough to disturb our rest. Fenianism," it seems, "is much stronger than ever it was before." It has thrown off all friendly feeling for Romanism," and" a Fenian may now travel from Calais to Naples, and be certain of aid and help from all the Reds he meets with; and we are assured that we are on the eve of a very great political convulsion in Europe, and before many months are over we shall witness an up- heaving of the rocks on which we believe our institu- tions are so firmly built, and an oversetting of a vast deal of what we now look upon as impossible to over- turn." We wonder whether the police have any knowledge of this desperate conspiracy?
