STATE OF IRELAND. Mr. Patrick Egan has received the following telegram: CHICAGO MANIFESTO. To the people of Ireland, through Patrick Egan, treasurer of the Irish National Land League, From W. K. MacAllister, Chief Justice, Appellate Court, Illinois, Chairman. Poteen thousand citizens of Chicago endorse the ultimatum of you and of our imprisoned chiefs, and echo the command pay no rents." Tell Gladstone to unlock the jails that hold the chivalry of Ireland. Until Constitutional rights are guaranteed, free speech declared, and feudalism abolished, we stand committed to you with our money and our lives. Mr. Sexton is dangerously ill, and no communica- tion has been allowed with him since his arrest; so that, pruv-ucally, he has been in solitary confinement. The suspects feel great indignation at this changed treatment; but it is remarkable that they acquit the warders of anything but strictness in carrying out their orders, and are unanimous in the belief that the Chief Secretary has directly sanctioned all of which they complain. The Press Association have issued a grave statement in regard to the Fenian conspiracy in which it attempts to prove that the lives of the several members of the Cabinet are really in great jeopardy. It states that inquiries in America, in Paris, in London, and in the various provincial towns of this country fully confirm the necessity of the utmost caution being exercised. The head centre of the movement in Europe is Paris, but the chief direction is in the hands of O'Donovan Rossa, in New York. For several months past, and up to within a few weeks ago, what is known as The Fenian Mail has been conveyed to London by a man who was formerly an engineer, living at Woolwich, but who became storekeeper on board a vessel belonging to the National Line. Each time this steamer arrived from America the storekeeper was met by a woman who took from him such letters and documents as were directed to leaders of the movement in Liver- pool and Dublin, and who conveyed them to those cities secreted about her. An important mail was received in this way immediately before the attempt to blow up the Liverpool Town Hall of which crime two men named M'Grath and M'Kevitt were found guilty, and for which they were sentenced by Mr. Justice Lopez, the latter to fifteen years' penal servi- tude, and the former to penal servitude for life. This storekeeper, though there was no warrant out against him, found that he was being watched, and accordingly left, and it is believed joined a vessel of another line which arrives at Liverpool.
