PaJTHOLEUM V NASBY,
Late Pastor of the Church of the Njw
Dispensashun. ; - .
Origin of the word FenIan.,,
A few days ago, a Cincinnati gentleman
sent a polite note to James Stephens, the
Fenian chief, asking about the origin' cf
term Fenian," and Mating tfcat he had
failed to get any satisfactory answer from
"intelligent Irishmen" in that city. In
reply to this, 'Mr Stephens directed a
rather supercilious note to be written to
his correspondent, in which Mr.'S. ex
presses his "astonishment" that his cor
respondent ' 'should fail1 to be satisfied on
that'-subject by intelligent Irishmen of
Cincinnati." He thsn proceeds as fol
lows: "Everv student of Irish historv
will recollect that a chieftain 'existed m
Ireland," last' anterior to' the Christian
Era, named Tton JllcCvoL " This tterscn-'
ajre was the 'commandact of the Feonin
Erin or Irish militia, at a period when
Ireland was a nation, and her people pro-
tectea tnemeseives against tne encroach
ments of all invaders '
If the gentleman to whom this was sent
has-access to any "student of Irish histo-
ry,"or to any good work on Irish antiq
uities, he will - find that Mr. ' Stephens
could hardly hive succeeded in - getting
mere nistoncai and antiquarian blunders
into the same space than he has. WTe
have before us Dr. O'HalloranV-History
and Antiquities of Ireland," Dablm, 1819
and written prior to 1S02, in which the
origin of the term "Fenian" was explain
ed more than sixty years ago by' quota
tion from an p!4 poem in the'' irish char
acter; written in the ninth cent ury. Far
back in the gloom of history the Irish
were a polished ' and learned people
when nearly every other country cf Eu
rope was in the darkness cf th e barbar
ous ages. This is not disputed even by
the enemies of Irelaud. ' At that time
and both before and after, the Irish na
tion was known ' by a variety 'of-'names,
sach as Milesiacs,' Scots Gathelians and
Fenians: 'These names were applied to"
the whole body of the people.' ; It is cla
imed by the Irish' antiquaries that the
Irish people are descended from a colony
ci Scythians, who under" Fehmi made a
lodgment in Egypt, about a thousand
years before. Christ. - The son cf Fenius
married Scota, daughter of the Egyptian
king, and they had a son called Gatheli
us. This colony was subsequently ex
peled from Egypt and went to Greece,
wherq. they Jived about fifty years. Th
ence they migrated to Spain, and after
wards passed over from Spain to Ireland
fa thiriy-ships. Milesius, from whem
the Irifh take ciiecf their names, wvs a
Spaniard.. ". '.: ' . ' - -'
. This is the. account of the Irish anti
quaries, and has been for more than a
thousand years. It will be seen from
the names given how the Irish got their
fcevral national appellations, and especi
ally that of "Fenians." in the olden time,
which is the original cf all. On page
293, vol. I., of Dr. OTIalloran's "Histo
ry and Antiquities," he quotes a verse
of the old poem of the ninth century
above referred to, and prints it inthe or
iginal Irish character. The following
is a literal translation: "It is clear the
Irish were called Fenians from Fenius;
Gathelians (or Gaels) from Gathelus;
and Scots from Scota." Supsequently
the old name became a root for words
applied to military bodies" and great mili
tary men. .The Irish national militia
were called Fionne.Eirion. Sometimes
the general of this bedyjwas .called Righ
Fionna, or King of the militia. Ultima
tely it got to be used as a proper name
fur individual chiefs, as Feilbhe Flonne,
once admiral of a Muster fleet, and Fion
MacCumhal, referred toby Mr. Stephens
but who, by-the-tvay,was cot a chieftain
larJerior" to Christian," but was a gen-1
cral of the Crown army in the third cen
tury of the Chnstain Era. In the fore
going abservations we have followed the
tradittons of the Irish antiquaries without j
affirming their obsolate credulity, Our
object has simply been to trace the ori-
gin oe . a word, tntt nas mage quue a
noise in the world for a few years past.
. The Senate on the Sih passed the re
construction constitutional amendment
yeas 33, nays,ll ; and having amended
it in several particulars not heretofore
reported, the following is a ful.'. revision,
as returned to the House for its concur
, Resohed,'etc, That the following Ar
ticle be proposed to the Legislatures of
the several States as an amendment to

Sec 2 Representatives shall be ap
