Never leave Chili with nit seeing

ttiat led mo to BOO the Hindoo imutch-

Mtittrtitu IFvUiiro , mid'tlio
Jup.iiH'su girls of Yokohama , but it
was reserved for mo to see in Ohifi n
dance rddicnlly difTeront from all
others. A Ctulian gentleman volun
teered to take us to a house whcro wo
ciuld see it boat performed. Thu
music consisted of n single harp
well p ayod by n Chilian , who
accompanied the strange air with n
crow-like voice having n sort of falsetto
which Boomed at tiuica so high it
would break through the top ot bin
head , A girl with thu knuckles of
her hand kept time also on the drum
> t the harp , while each ono jircaunt
kept time in turn with ciappmg of
hui'dj and patting of fout. The dance
itself is simple , a girl ututiny out
alone swings her handkerchief utsome
man , who reaponds by coming on the
fl jor and following her about , watoh-
inp her movements closely nnd imi
tating themoyen eioh movement of
the handkerchief , which p'ays ' an im
portant pirt in the dance. Some
times she swings it over her head ,
sometimes over her shoulder in L
front of her , nnd at her eido , by
ouch movement she invites or repels
him , the whole idea of the daucs
being that the man ia making over
tures to her white she nota the part
of the coquette. They never touch
each other during all the movements ,
and tloroin conmsts one of the skill
ful charms cf the dance , tor at times
she passes under hia arms and at
others swinga the handkerchief just
over hia head , but all the time their
graceful straying movements are to
gether nnd yet upirt. Now there are
expressions of uuportbounding joy

Irmonstration rf welcome by the
[ rish citizens of this city waa tendered
iy Michael Davitt , of the Academy of
\lueic , to-night. After a number of
popular and patriot ! j airs had been
ilayed by the band , cheers were given
ior Davitt , Panic ) ) , Dillon and others.
Hon , Geo. W. Van Hosen occupied ,
the ohnir , nnd after nfow romaiks in-
reduced Davitt , wh t waa received
with tremendous cheering , Ho said
his waa hia third visit to America on
johalf of Ireland. On each previous ,
occasion ho came from an English
mson , and this time ho came from an
:3i : > gliah prison also , The indictments
lad been made ngaicst him by the
English government on several occa
sions , but now the charges were made
igainst him by Irishmen. At
cast twelve chaiges had been
made against him by men who claimed
n bo his fiiends. To the charges ho
iluaded "not gjitty , " nnd ho would
nave thn nudiencu to bo the jury.
) nc of the ohnrgofl was that hu was
) eing run by Mr. George. This was
untrue. The only person that run
Michael Davitt was "AlichaelDavitt. "
Ho believed that Ireland should bo
governed by an Irish parliament and
lint the land eliould bo nationalized.
The chnrgo of favoring nn alliance
with the English people was untrue ,
ml ho claimed the right to assist any
jooplo in the world without Blackeu-
ng his ilfjrts for Ireland. Ho did
lot believe that Parnoll'a criticisms
if the Liverpool speech wore fair , but
till there was not any feei
ng between them. The duty of
ritthmon to-day was loyalty
o the Land league , fidelity
o Parnoll's leadership BO long as Par-
toll is true to the Land leapuo in Ire-
and , and the repudiation of assatai-
lations ns a means of helping Ire-
and. By perfect unity of nil classes ,
uccess would crown their ffl > > rts.
