j * * t 11 o'clock yesterday morning they
] stiutod for Loughmarsh house , under

It xras again raining hard , and ngaln
they had to march , as no cars could
bo hired. There was very Ihtle cr
citeraent in town yesterday. The

LTho cxpsdition arrived at Jlr. Sny
colt's i > laceat a quarte paat-3 O'clCSWT
There was very little Incitement , and
KJ demonstr.yion of any kind. . The
agiicultural implements were loft at
Olareniorris in the nibt , as membars
of the expedition had not time to wait
to have them leaded on wagons ,
and a detachment of Hussars went to
Cldremorris after them yesterday
morning , and were expected to re
turn last night. The work of harvest
ing Mr. Baycolt'a crop will not bo be-
Kun until to-day. A correspondent
of The Daily News , telegraphing from
Ballinrobe , thus describes Mr. Bay
colt and his home : - The isolated
dwelling was a moro gloomy object
than tie landscape. It is dreary and
prieon like , as most of the Irish houa
es of its class , and Mr. Baycolt's habi
tation has thoroughly the look of a
place in which crimes had been , or ,
ts a native-in these parts suggested ,
ought to be c-immitted. Two dark
figures in the garb of the royal Irish
constabulary , occupied the front door
step , and others of their fellows kept
watch and ward over the stables and
grounds. .Nearly three weeks of
p-ucful excitement had made but
slight change in Mr. Biycolt's family.
His wife and daughter live under cir
cumstances which would drive many
people mad , and the combatkiv < . > land
agent and farmer himself maintains a
belligerent attitude. His head is
gray , and his slight figure bowed , but
by no means in submission. On the
contrary , never was Mr. Baycolt'a at
titude moro deSant. It is only by
skillful subterfuge that he cin gut a
lilri. w li < vl for Iiiaoulor , or n lo f
of broad for his inner man. _ Under
ground routes , which existed a fort
night ago , ire closed , and in fact all
communication is stopped , and the
hunted man is driven to the last ex-
trotnety. Not a aoul will ecll him &
sixpence worth of anything. Ho can
not even get a glass for his wfttch from
the watchmaker Thursday evening
the following loiter was handed Mr.
Baycolt by the tenants ot Lord E irne :
KILLMOHE , November 10.
To C. 0. Eajcolt , E q :
Sir. Iii accordance with the decis
ion made In Lord Erne's last letter to
us , we want you to appoint a day to
receive rents from the tensnis. A
reply is requested.
Mr. Biycolt's _ reply was lh.it he
would ba ready to receive rents at 10
o'clock Friday morning , an hour after
which time ho received the following
notice :
KILLMORK , November 12.
To O. C. Eatcjlt , Eiq :
'Tho tenants request an answer to
the following before they pay the rent :
First , don't you wish you may get
it ? Second , what day do you expect
the Or. ngemon , and how are they to
como ? Third , how are you going to
hook it ? Lot us know , BO that we may
see you off. Fourth , are you anyway
comfortable ? Don't be unessy in
your mind , wo will take care of your
self. Down with the landlords and
their agents. God save Ireland. _
Such communications as this are
agreeable and amusing enough when
addressed to a distant friend , but are
hardly so diverting when directed to
one's eclf. It is also disgusticg to
hear pcoplo say , when one passes ,
"He will not hear the birds sing in
tie spring. " Next toopcn and secret
enemies indiscreet friends are perhaps
the most d'saproeable of created bo-
ings. Unfortunately Mr. Biycolt ,
wuo'wantcd a tcoro at most of the
northern men to gat in his crops , has
been threatened with an invasion
from Ulster. The opposition of t ! e
government to such ulster measures ,
as Galwsy men callsd tbern yesterday ,
ha-i at least had the effect of moder
ating the peasantb' rancor. Of the
relief expedition , only fifty , with the
baggage and implements , are an
nounced as on thb march , but even
this number is a hideous infliction on
Mr. Baycolt. Ho has nowhere to
lodge them but in his barn , ( "and has
-assuredly nowhere withbut to feed
them , so his position , whether con
fronted either by friend or foe , is sim
ply overwhelming. -
Two hundred additional marines
have been ordered to Ireland.
The Orangemen and also the troops
will remain at Loughmarkten days.
Mr. Wheeler , a land agent in coun
ty Limerick , was shot dead yesterday.

IT WILL BE A MIRACLE
if a collision is avoided , but the mili
tary have orders merely to preserve
order and protect the relief pirty , and
no trdublu , it is thought , will be provoked
'
voked by'lho soldiery. In the stale
trials at Dublin this morning , the
judges of the court of tha queen's
bench granted the traverers' applica

acts alleged against them.

authorized any action in the matter.

They Didn't Do It.
Special Dispatch to The Bee.
NEW YOUK , November 13,1 a. m.
The executive committee of the na
tional democratic committee at its
final meeting last night , adopted the
folio fing :
The national democratic committee
make the following statement con
cerning the so-called Morey letter.
First Neither the committee nor
any B.ib-cooimittee thereof , have ever
taken any active part in reference to
said letter.
Second It was first called to the
attention of the chairman of the com
mittee on the night before Its publi
cation iu Tlft Truth , on the 20th of
October.
Third That the chairman therefore
requested Mr. Suialley , a member of
the committee , to examine ho letter ,
but permission to do so was refused
at the office of The Truth.
Fourth That no member of the
committee ever saw the letter , or any
copy or portion thereof until its pub
lication , or was in any wise concerned
theraln , or give any advice In refer
ence thereto.
Fifth Thai Mr. Hart brought the
original letter to the headquarters on
the afternoon of October 20 , where It
was seen for the first time by any
member of the committee , and then
examined by several members of the
committee and other persons. All
those who were 'familiar with the |
handwriting of Gen. Garfield came to
the conclusion that the letter was
genuine.
Sixth That the committee decided
to purchase a reasonable number of
electrotype pl tes of fac simile which
had already been prepared by The
Truth.
Seventh No denial having
come from Gen. Garfield of the au
thenticity of the letter , notwithstand
ing the telegraphic demand by The
Now York Herald , the committee de
cided to give out the electrotype
plates , which was accordingly done.
The propriety of this action was not
doubted by the committee , as the let
ter seemed to be in harmony with
Gen. Garfield's views on the subject ,
as gathered from public records of un
doubted genuineness.
Eighth That a complete denial
was not published until four days af
ter the original publication in Tfaej
Truth , and this denial was nnsupport- .
ed by any other evidence. ' ' The com
mittee , in view of Gen. Garfield's con
nection with other scandals , attached
no weight to hia denial.
Ninth That , therefore , when the
evidence was offered -show that
Morey was , the real" person , and not a
myth , the committee called for its
production , as they were bound to do
in order to arrive at the truth , and
that if the letter had been forged or
any fraud committed in reference
thereto , or false evidencj given , it has
been done without the knowledge or
consent cf the committee or any mem
ber thereof. Finally the committee
approves of all honest meaaurej to
punish any and all persons who have
committed any violation of the lair ,
and have no interest in the matter
but to arrive at the truth of the afluir.
That there should be any doubt aa to.
the authenticity of the letter is largely
duo to the failure of Che prosecution
to put Gen. Garfield on the stand.
By order of the committee.

READING , Pa. , November 13 la.
m. Several years ago the Philadel
phia & Reading railroad company is-
xued a series of interest-bearing
wages certificates , which were paid to
employes , and were accepted by the
company in payment of freights , and
were also accepted everwhero in this
section by merchants in exchange for
goods. Three persons , Messrs. Hall ,
White and Walsh , residing in Jersey
City and New York , iu the early part
of last summer , it is believed , conspir
ed to forge and circulate counterfeit
ccrjificites , and came to this city wih
La largo amount of them , and began
operations. Their movements , how
ever , were shadowed from the time
they left New York up to the time
they arrived at the Philadtlphia &
Reading depot in this city. They had
with- them , when arrested , a satchel
containing § 7400 worth of counterfeit
scrip. The defense was that the lith
ographic atonts from which the coun
terfeits ware printed , and which were
found in Hall's residence , were placed
there unknown to Hall ; that Walsh ,
