Tho appeal of William O’Brien, editor
of United Ireland, against tlie sentence of
three months’ imprisonment imposed on
him by the Michclhtown court,Was been
refused nnd the sentence of tlie lower court
confirmed. The charge of which he was
convicted was of using seditious lan
guage under tlie crimes act at the na
tional league meeting nt Mitchellstown.
A most exciting scene ensued in the
court room at Middleton when tho de
cision .confirming the sentence of the
Mitcheltown court was announced, Tlie
room was immediately in nn uproar, and
people clustered around Mr. O’Brien to
prevent tho law officers from arresting
him. Mr. Harrington contended that tho
police had no right to arrest Mr. O’Brien.
A terrible struggle took place in thc
court room aud in thc passage leading to
the street between Mr. O'Brien and his
friends on one side and the police on tlie
other. The police finally succeeded in
arresting Mr. O’Brien. Tho pep pie re
mained in thc street outside the conft
clamoring for the rescue of Mr. O’Brien
nnd vengeance upon the police. The vi
cinity of the prison at Cork, where Mr,
O’Brien won taken, was occupied by a
strong forco of pol ce. Fully one hun

Mr. O’Brien, which was driven rapidly

old crop nt distributing centres, does not
show the uctual distribution or c nsump-
tion. The total to date for cash of the

year, against 145,000 barrels last year.
Deducting these two amounts from flic
total stock and crop, leaves a visible
supply, 1 first hands, of about 313,000
barrels, against 575,000 barrels in 1880.
The partial failure of the potato crop iii
Europe has already caused a marked on
hirgemont of the demand for rice abroad ;

visible supply is now nearly 30 per cent,
loss. Three prominent factors determino
the course of the domestic rice market
the amount produced; the cost of im
porting' foreign; the amount produced of
other crops—such as potatoes, etc., which
are related in a greater or less dogreo to
the same channels of consumption as rice.
The facts in regard to ttiese show that the
crop is nearly 2(;P,000 barrels short of
trade requirements east of tlie Rocky
Mountains; that the domestic in primary
mari etii is below the cost of competing
grades In foreign; that there is a marked
shortage in crops which are, ordinarily,
competitors with rice. These several
reasons are thought to clearly indicato
that there will he a high range of values

(lie shooting took place, is iu tho parish
of Terre Bonne, op Bayou Blnck, eight
miles from Tigerville, and between that
point and Ilomer. Prior to tho strike,
there wero employed upon the Green
wood plantation about sixty laborers,
twenty-five white, and tho remainder
colored. On Friday the iuttcr all struck
for-higlier wages, hut nil tho white hands
remained nnd continued nt work ns usual.
