CIVIL LIBERTY AND ABBITBABY
AKRESTS. . ; ; '
' Lest Iwe b misunderstood we wish
to empnasize; the attitude of the Star
towards andJNc Southern-born
men who know what war means and
iniquitous, devilish op
, do, can j for a moment
have aught put ! sympathy with the
long outraged and down-trodden peo
ple of Ireland- It is impossible for any
man who cherishes his own liberty
and regards the liberty of others and
who has; any intelligent understand
ing of Irish .history! to justify the
course of the British government in
its dealing? with Ireland, or to have
any other feeling thin that f detes
tation for the abuses of power and
the assaults upon personal liberty.
: Just in proportion as the South has
suffered front' the violations of law,
the dragonading of entire States, the :
' suspension of the writ of habeas
; corpus, tne oreaKing. up pi jjegisia-
jtures- by armed
despotism, the coer-
cioh of individuals, , $he prostitution
of the ; ballot nnder the auspices of
bayonets and military .satraps, will
be the antipathy of Southern people
to the arbitrary arrests in Ireland,
the passage and j enf orcement cf coer
cion acts, . and the violations of the
liberty of the subject. . ' ! .;
! We do notl hesitate to say that the
Liberal Government, has blundered
greatly, in our belief in two particu
lars. First, in .the passage and the
manner .of., executing the : Coercion
act ; and, second, in' the arrests . of
ParneJI- Dillon and others iinder, that
act?;f These are - great and.lnexcusa
ble blunders, as we regard it. ..v

the aei itself l is un-
. wise' excessive in its power, arbitrary
in its sweep, is violative of the funda

Thif gives' a new aspect; to the strag
gle in Ireland! :It becomes a question
of personai libery. ' In this connection

questaoii before tlie Jrish people is; not the

is not "the readjustment of rents but the

. King, to enforce respect to' ms arbitrary
! measures, besran to arrest and imprison all
i who opposed them,; and the Star. Chamber

: members of Parliament to be arrested
'under a special law, but not for vio
lating actually any other law, butfor
being a "suspect" -for being accused
- of complicity in some way with such
1 violations. This will strike the intelligent-Southerner'
as being a'gfeat!
'outrage and wrong.
: We cannot refer to the other ques
tion that concerns the Land act We
'have confined ourselves to' the; viohv'
tions of the personal rights of free
subjects. ; The British Government
seems resolved ? that the Land law
shall have a trial, and to that J end
will use its great power. The chief
prelates of the Irish Catholic Church
are on the side of the law. Possibly
two-thirds of the Irish people are
hostile to the law and will refuse to
pay rents. ' But our space- is more

MORE CONCERNING OUR FORESTS.
i A writer in the Charlotte Home
and Democrat has an instructive-
paper on v" The Forests 'of North.
Carolina." He says in the opening :
j ' The great variety of the forest-growth
of North Carolina, surpassing that of any;
other State in the Union, has long elicited
the admiration of every intelligent observer:
It, constitutes one of the most, attractive
features of the landscape of Nature spread
around us." ! ' ' i .
1 He then at length' describes the
most valuable as well as the orna
mental trees of dnr State.' He takes
up the oaks first.' Of these there are
nineteen species. He"sas : , , .
! : . " They are "as follows : The White Oak,
fost uaK, spamsn uaK, isea u&k, unestnut
Oak, ; Water Oak;; Black Oak, live'- Oak,
confined to the seacoast, and other species
of less notoriety UI this enumeration tne
White Oak : is undoubtedly the most valua

cultural implements, - Vehicles of various
kinds, s coopers',: ware, ship-building and
other purposes. ,.. Its fruit (acorns) is Jhe

"The most . valuable are the common
hickory, (eery a tomentom;) the pignut hick
ory, (C. glabra,) and shellbark hickory? (7.

The nuts of this species are highly prized,
and deemed by many equal to the peacan

of the common and pignut hickories are

THE CONFLICT OF PRINCIPLE.
The large meetings held in London
. . . ' -. , " '".
i.-of -, the i British. Government
are significant. ; Englishmen can no
more, afford . than ; can', Irishmen to
have the personal liberty df subjects
of thei Queen invaded or; abridged.
The fact, that Mr.Parnell and a -dozen '
or more leaders have been, thrown into !
; jail, -- and - under ; a special : act, and
not under an old law.of the realm, and
that, too, wttASutaTfyffence other
than the i exercise of Free speech, is
well calculated1 to, excite both fears
and hostility. Secretary Forster
pledged his - solemn ; word to the
Liberals' who hesitated to support the
Coercion act that it should never be
employed in the suppression of the
what Mr.; Forster said. . Kow we see
;this -very law r used for the very end
for which it was promised it should
never be' used. The aim now is to
suppress the League, and its leaders
-must either flee or. go to jprison. It
is not to be wondered at that Ireland
is convulsed." i ' ; " ' , J "
; We have been Jookinsr more ' into
the Irish side of the question. -We
jfihd certain Northern papers mostly
Republican are ' misleading of ten i n
their statements. They lean alto
gether toj tbe' Government, and can'
see no justice, or sense, or honesty,
even in the Irish position. There is
one. exception.' The ' Philadelphia
sA.nxer icanj say s : ' :
j ''No great agitation can be carried for
ward without occasioning ' violent acts on
the part of those who are especially excita
ble to malevolence; and of .those who have
been maddened by personal experience of
the wrones which the movement seeks to
iabolish. In; Ireland the latter class espe
cially abounds, and is increasing every day.
Far larger than, the list of agrarian out
rages, is the list of evictions that have taken
place since Mr. Forster became ! Secretary
for Ireland, yery Irish newspaper and we
see many brings details of the destruction
of humble; - homes ! ' and the expulsion
of, the , tenants ; from lands endeared to
them by long possession much longer in
many cases than the landlord's tenure of
his estate. . There has been a grea haste in
this work since the terms of the Land act
were published and its passage was fore
seen. . The worse class of landlords have,,
been availing themselves of every legal ad-'
vantage to strip their lands of tenants, be
fore these can acquire rights under the act.
in hope that ; the new Land Courts will in
cline to their side of the case ; It is such
men as these evicted tenants, who have
bassed the limit of action fixed by the
League, and; have sullied the whole popu
lar movement by the retaliation of illegal
upon legal violence." '
We are assured that no act of vio
lence is justified by the League but
is in contravention of its teachings.
The League means to agitate within
the limits of the law.' Passive re
sistance is its " plan arid' ' watchword.
We' do' hot understand how as good
and great a man as , Gladstone is can
justify hi. " Own ! course in sup
