, AitKiist 10 [ Now York Herald
I Cable-Special to the Ui'.r. . ] The city has
been remarkably quiet to-day , and many
people cxpiess ho | > os that the riots aio finally
over. A full list of casualties up to 8 p. m.
Includes only n lamplighter's tluoat cut by
catholics In the .small horns of last night , the
htonlng of some catholic mill girls on their
way to work by a party of protcstant women ,
two catholics hcvciely wounded by gun
shots Irom a house vvhllo o n their way to the
burial of a body shot n few days ntro , and an
attack on protestant laboieis by catholics ,
using stones instead of pistols fortunately.
The procession of orange workmen com
ing homo fiom tliodock vnids passed through
the catholic districts this evening without
rioting , so that the surgeoiib were spared the
woik usually made necessary by the broken
bottles and jagged lion bolts commonly used
for weapons on such occasions. In order to
prevent the "Island bois" from rlotlnir the
troops lined both sides of the street
tluough the catholic qu alters ,
each cross-stieet being closed by a
coidon of pollu ! mounted , with a second cor
don half a block up. Stiong houlcs of cav-
ahy picccded and followed the icturnlng
workmen , who passed waving theli hats ,
' cheering and yelling. Of cotus-o
'I- AM. llfSlNI'.SS IB STOPPED
ill these streets. For an hour or more the
Catholics sullenly watched the procession
pass. Both bides were anxious for a fight ,
nnd weio only icstialned by the overwhelm
ing toico of tioopsand police.
At a meeting of catholics held to day a pro-
testwas mailo against the unfairness of the
piote.itant maglstiatcs. A petition was drawn
up for tholi removal. Mr. Blggar and sev
eral other members of parliament were pres
ent It was alleged by several priests that
tlio catholics caught in the mobs weio impiis-
oued for six months , 'while the piotestunts
wotelet off with n ton bhllliiiKb line by tlio
proteatant justices. Father Gicen stated that
every evening thu oiangemun used as weap
ons lion bolts taken liom the yaidofthe
ma > orof Beilast who had pieviously never
allowed such valuable lion to bo taken away
Irom his v ard

Irodo to-day ovei Sunday's baUlo ground ,
wheie early on Sunday the Protestants and
catholics spent foiu houis in liring at each
other fiom behind tteei , stone walls , etc. The
details nh eady given of this light aio pioba-
bly nnauthentic , but suvcial catholics con
fess that twenty-seven dead catholics were
cai rlcd off the field. Catholic pi lestb tell me
thatptobably all weie bulled sccietly beneath
the floor of houses , as was done In the dots
oflbOl. Thobphltof the people is shown
by the case of a man killed while
bring fiom n window. He fell back in his
wife's aims , and bald , "Don't let the orange
devils know they have killed me. " In fiont
of many houses 1 notice the cobble stones
have been loosened icady for use in case ot
emergency. When the emergency comes the
chlldien act as powder monkeys. They
keep the cobble magazine full.
THU PlIIliST AND C'l.KKOV.
One 01 the peculiar tcatures of the iccent
riots has been the leading pait taken by the
piotestaut cleigy and the catholic priests.
If anything weio lacking to bhow that religi
ous dIUeiences aio icsponsiblo tor tlio riots ,
the advice given lo the rioteis by their pas
tors completes tlie chain of evidence. Of
course , botli the priests and protestant
clergy have advised against ac
tual violence , but ncveithclcss they
have exhoi led their congregations never to
give up rioting. The llev. Dr. Kane , of
Chust church , Loing the piluclpal piotoitant
leader , lias gonubo tar as to tell tlio mayor
and magistrates that tlio police must bo dls-
aimed ut once ami lemoved tiom the orange
quarteis , else 2,000.000 aimed orangemen
would take the lilies nnd revolveis
from the police , peaceably if possible , foici-
bly if necessary. As an answer to Dr. Kane
the may 01 oideied all the police fiom the
Oiange quaiter , with the lesultso far of an
cntlio cessation of hostilities in that part of
A IMiOl T.STANT MINIS mi TALKS.
I saw Di. Kane tills nioining. He bald :
"The i lot was caused by the exasperation ot
the catholics at the defeat of homo rule.
J'liln exaipuiatlon against the orangomcn has
extended lo the police , who are laigely cath
olics The icbttlt is that the catholic mobs
who invaded the piotestaut quai-
ter vvcio piotected by the police ,
who then Ihod on the oiangemen ,
who weie merely proteetlnc their homes.
They have a responsible lawyer who Is will
ing to swear ho saw the police open their
ranks to allow the catholic mob to pass
through to attack the orangemen.
When this mob was repulbcd the
police again opened their tanks and
allowed thu catholics to pass thiough unln-
juicu , but they fired buckshot at the protestants -
ants , who , of coiii.so , weio gieatly enraged at
filch scandalous treatment by the police.

This In but a sample of the whole. If Glad
stone's bcpaiatlon bill had not been brought
in wo should now bo as peaceful as wo have
been for the last twcnty-Jivo years. If the
homo rttlo bill had been
passed all Ulster would be now
engaged In n desperate civil war
The orangemen have shown In these ilota
such desperate courage that wo don't fear
the icsult of sui-h awar 1C Iliu necessity aiUes
for It. I have told the magistrates it Is pos
slblofor them to exterminate the orange pop
illation of Ulstei but It is not possible to subdue
duo it. 1 know that about tw enty protestents
have been killed in these dots and many
moio catholics lm\n been killed. There are
about ono hundred and ninety then aiu

TIIK CATHOLIC SIDE.
Father Giccn , a piominont catholic priest
who has winked foi tvv enty ye.u s in Belfast ,
bald : "Tlio teal liotins began when the pro
testant bands paiadod tlio city on ttie day o :
Dr. Hannah's Pie.-bvterlnn jilcnlc , playln

The eathnllo bands are not allowed to parade

by aggressions on the part of the
protctanta. hook , for Instance , at the
daily psiiuio of oriingemen coming horn
fiom the ir.ayor'svoiUe. . They march in a
compact body through the catholic quarter

"VYo are In the mluoiity , l.ut wo are :
ghtlng minority. Of course , the priests
annol alvvajs control the jxoplo : under such

rlty knows that when the police are with
drawn they can always whip the protestant
najorlty. This rlotinc will RO On as long
s the protcstant magistrates Interfere
injtistly against the catholic . If someone
vouldliannall the boiottijli magistrates the

a few volleys of buckshot fired Into cveiy

"The dltrcienco In rcll on Is of course at

A MAUtSrHATi : ' * OPINION.
Air. Johnston , the magistrate , said the so-
ciuilotliiK was duo laigely to the action of
he residents ami paid uiaKlstiates who
called the catholic police to Bel
fast without consulting the mayor
and the local magistiates. This
created jealousy among the "locals , " who
Irst refused to co-operate with the resident
naglstrales when the iloting began. The po-
Ice certainly showed great lack of judgment
n lii ing on the mob , when they should
simply have made arrests. The Instructions
low aio to ancbt moic and shoot less.
NOT OV'UU YET.
Ueed , the inspector gcncial of the Irish
constabulary , e\piosscd gicat doubt whether
the lioting Is OUT. "The police have been
; reatlv but unjustly blamed. Personally I
ia\e investigated tlie complaints ol drunken
ness and carelebb shoolinu' . 1 have found the
men always sober. They weio foiccd to
shoot in oiuer to save their own
Ivcs. So many women and children have
jcen killed because they insist in taking
lait with the mobs. 1 risked my life several
lines duting thu tiring In my attempts 10
diaw the women liom the streets. I always
'ailed and was only cursed foi my trouble.
I am veiy willing to disarm the police , but it
is not possible to do so. "

Piotcbtant Belfast now has patio ! tioops at
ic.iily eveiy corner. The disturbed uistiicts
of catholic Belfast are equally well guauled
by tlie police. It is cei tain the police mean
hoon to attempt to lesumo duly in oiango
juaiteis , and a struggle is then expected ,
uobabably a bloody one.
The mayor informs me ho will not sanc-
, ! on the pioclamation of maitlal law except
as a last extiemltj , as this would practically
forbid all tiatlle alter dark a thing impossi
ble In a city M > large as Belfast.
A I'KACKPUL NIGHT.
BELFAST August 11,1 a. m. I have just
dilven through all the disturbed pairs of the
city and tour patiols of tioops and uolice on
icarly every coiner In parties
of six to a dozen. This great
show of foico has prevented all rioting
except a little wild shooting In which ono or
-wo - peisons were wounded. The outlook Is
leacutul and encouiaglng , although It Is hard
.o tell what may Happen when the exhausted
police ate vvithdiawn.
Work or the Moo.
BHLFAST , Aiigust 10. Five thousand
tioops and 2,500 constables occupy the dis
turbed districts. Tlio presence of the police
tends to Increase instead of suppress tlio di -
ordeis. The piotestants declare that the
catholics weio the asgiesaois by wrecking
protestant houses , while the catholics aie
equally ceilaln that the protest ants worn the
aggiessors. Of ono thing there is no doubt
never did two mobs of different religions dis
play a more bloodthirsty desiio to kill or
maim each other. During the lighting on
Sunday and Monday , whenever the powder
ran short , viragos on botli sides , witli flat
Irons and othei Implements , ground thelarce
grains ot blasting powder into a size suitable
tor binall aims , while boys of tender age
melted lead into bullets and slugs. While
the iloters weio liiing the youths and women
stood behind them busily loading bpaio guns
In oidcrto pievent a waste of time. The tusl-
lade. lasted until t ) o'clock vesteiday morning
when the ammunition gave out and a tacit
truce ensued , both sides removing dead nnd
wounded to their homes. Botli sides are doIng -
Ing their utmost to hide theli looses. Friends
and neighbors of the Killed and wounded all
i egaid the police as foes. Their presence Is
a tenor to the lepulsed , und excludes the
Idea of wantonucbs. This is now the gicatsu-

ho belief la very general that

ho necessary steps to convince Mexico
hat the United States Is icady to enfoico

shall bo deemed to have ailscn , It Is the
iit'valent opinion lieie that It the state de-

nauds lor the release ot Cutting , It will bo
Hiite hiillieicnt to bend two or thiee thousand

Or Bnck Down.
WASHINGTON , August 10. [ Special Tele-
tram to the Br.K.J A rumoi was current
icro last night to the rifect that troops and
war vessels aio being massed on the Mexican
border. Officials of the war and navy dc-
lartiuent were seen by your coi respondent
.his morning and asked the tiuth of the
rumoi. 'Ihoy all denied that anything In
the natitia of hostile demonstrations have
jet been contemplated , but decline to di
vulge the nature of the sealed eiders of the
CJalcna , which put to sea last week ,
destination unknown. An old diplomatic
olllccrof the government said today : "Wo
mo really como to the end of our rope In
the Cutting case. The secretary of state has
demanded his icleaso and the Mexican gov-
cinmcnt has practically told us to go to the
devil. It is my linn opinion that Cutting
will be hanged 01 shot before ho will bo le-
Icased. They will , ot course , say' that lie
Hied to escape. I know the Mexican cliar-
iclei and 1 leel certain that MHIIC excuse for
lidding thocountiv of him will bo found. "
"What will bo done next ? "
" 1 do not see that anything can be done by
this goveinment until congress meets again.
The president Is absolutely powerless. The
seerotaiy of state has demanded the icleaso
ot Cutting. The Mexican go\ eminent has
declined to comply with the demand. The
constitution provides that only congress shall
declato war and while it is , within tlio prov
ince of the president to mass troops and \\\r
vessels in the neighborhood of Mexico , ho
cannot make any further hostile demonstra
tions and the Mexicans know It as well as wo
do. Unless some action is taken towards en
forcing the demand for Cutting's release , he
will in all piouability lemaiii In prison , un
less he is hanged in the meantime. "
Still More Humors.
WASHINGTON , August 10. [ Special Telo-
giam to the Bin. | There are some rumors
about town of impending naval and military
movements against Mexico , but they cannot
as yet be construed into anything dclinite or
staitling. They may be , peihaps , Indicative
ol a determination on the pait ot the govern
ment to bo foichandcd and prepared foi an
emergency. The Galena was oidered nto the
Gulf last week , and this action ceitainly does
glvo rise to much comment in army , navy
and political circles , it being consldcicd an
extraordinary pioceedlng In tlmo of peace.
The Vandalla and Junlata were ordered to
Valparaiso last Friday , and it is whispered
by knowing ones that It would not bo sur
prising If those ships , when they stop at Key
West lei supplies , should bo inteiccpted there
dispatches dlicctlng their course to the
Gulf. As to our other available naval mate
rial , thcio aie three or tout ships at Portland
that might bo ordered oil in a similar way ,
but it is not learned that they have been as
yet. As foi troops , there are now beUvecn
tour and live thousand soldiers in the south
western teriltories which could be easily
matched to the Mexican frontier. But Ifany
such movement wcro contemplated it would
probably ho dliectcd by scaled eiders unless
the purpose of the government were to over
awe and fiighton Mexico. But no public or
ders have been Issued , and if there are any
sealed oidcis en route the war dcpaitment
would of course keep them secret.
