The Fenians in America. l LATEST PARTICULARS. [CEXTRAL NEWS TELEGRAM.] INZW YORK, Friday mgnt.—A ternoie attair occurred hers this afternoon, creating the utmost excitement and anger amongst the Irish colony. The occurrence took place in the offices of United Inland, O'Donovan Rossa's paper, which are situated in Chambers-street. About four o'clock a man named Richard Short made a violent attack upon Captain Phelan, stabbing him fatally. Phelan, although taken unawares and mortally injured, managed t.7 grasp his re- .1 volver and fired at his assailant, wounding him seriouslv. Medical -id was soon to hand, but Phelan's wounds vere too severe to hope for recovery, and he died soon afterwards in great agony. The murdered man wa, one of the pro- jectors of what is known as the. "Skirmishing fund," started by O Donovan Rossa, and the extreme section of Irishmen in New York, for the purpose of collecting subscriptions to enable the dynamite policy to be effectually carried out in England. He was at one time suspected of being the notorious «XP. Qnej!, aboufc whom so much was written and a,id at the time of the Local Government Board explosion in London. Short declared that Phelan was one of the many Irish- men who had been compelled to quit their native country and seek refuge in America on account of the revelations made by the informer McDer- mott to the Dublin Castle offir-ials; but whether this was the case or not, it is impossible to say. The alleged cause of to-day's attack is that Phelan had divulged certain Fenian se- crets which he, as a member of the society, would necessarily know, and the Publication of which would obviously result in feotne considerable inconvenience to the rest of the members. It should be added that when they Came to search the murdered man a lettsr was found from RosEa. asking that he (Phelan) would call at the office, as there was something impor- tant to communicate to him. As already stated, the tragicatfair created an enormous sensation not confined to Irishmen alone, and the offices of United Ireland had a narrow escape of beino- wrecked, while Rossa himself was openly threa" tened with lynch law. His friends, however, barricaded the doors and windows of the building] and declared their intention of standing between and harm. 1 Patrick Egan, former treasurer of the on on League, and now president of the Irish IN atioual League of America has sent some of his friends specimen green cards of mem- bership adorned with tha eld house in College Green, and a circular to the Irish Americans statino- that Mr Parnell and his able and intrepid band of followers are every hay gaininn ground in the struggle against their enemies in the alien Parliament, while at home the people are seizing upoh every representative position, hurling from power the slaves and sycophants of the English garrison, filling their places with staunch Nationalists. Already such a change has come over the temper and the spirits of our people, as no one not intimately acquainted with the country could realise or believe. They are now a nation of persevering resolute They are n(-iiv a nation of persevering resolute men, intelligently determined on the attainment of their full and just rights to wring from Eng- land, despite all difficulties and all opposition, he national legislative indepence of their country, inn with niateriul support which for the past four VeArs has been the life blood of the movement at fioffle, they must win.
