The Fenians have raised the stand ard of revolt, and fired the first shot on insb soil. The .molt Intense excitement aud alarm have prevailed for the last three days. Kerry, the counly of the far-famed garden of Ireland, has been the scene of operations. The mountains and glens of KUlarney, over which the tourist bos been want to stiay, have become the hivooac ground of the Insurgents. The beaute ous echoes ot Dunto, which hitherto but repeated soft notes awakened by (be guides, have taken up tbe hoarser cry of a pursuing army, and the mimic catnon, which many an American tourist will re member as arousing the reverberations of the bills, has given place to tbe more stem reality of the “ Armstrongs.” it appears that the council who bare lately ar rivtd irotn New York and taken the direction of Fenian affairs here decided that there should be a simultaneous rising in England and Ireland; tbe objf ct of ihe former being to collect the men from Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Preston and other nmnniactaring towns, to attack Chester Castle, in which a large store of arms and ammunition was known to bs kept, only guarded by fourteen men, and then take possession of a steamboat and make for Dublin. Tho patties in the South, Ignorant of the failure of the Chester aud Dublin business, ro«c accord ing to agreement. The command was' assumed by General O’Connor, who has hem residing in the neighborhood of Cahlrdvces for some weeks. By hlf direction tho roads were taken possession or by bands of armed Fenians, toe telegraph wires to \ al< nda, and also those to Tralee were cat, and thus all communication from tho district was slopped. Having eecared Cahlrclvcm as a base of operations, O’Connor dcspaiched nis colleague. Captain Monarty, with full instructions to Ihe Bead Centre, in KUlarney. The even ing that Moriarty was to arrive tn KUloruey, an anonjmous letter was brought by a little barefooted girl to Mr. Galway, the agent of Lord Castlerosge, luionnlng him that Captain Moriarty, a Fenian agent, waa coming by Blonconl’a car from Cahirciveeo. The letter stated that the man would be knoan as Qaving a broken nose—(Moii arty bad bis nose Injured in the late American war). The car was met by the police four miles outside the town, and the Captain arrested. The papers found on him created an Immondty of alarm, asserting that be was to give the signal, that ibe hank was to he (be first place sacked, and then Lord Castlerossc’s mansion. Tbe news spread with rapidity, and in a few hours the whole county wasjap to fever heat ot ex citement. The gentry poured into the town with their families and valuables: the Railway Hotel was taken possession of by them, and a guard ot constabulary placed around it. As soon as O’Connor beard of the fatoofbla messenger be massed tbe Fenians and marched towards Kliiamey with the object of rescuing biro. On their way they attacked each police station they came to and took whatever arms and ammunition could he found, balttid not do in jur) to the men. They were Joined by several uands a!ong the road, so that tnelr numbers r racked sewn hundred In a few boars. At KclU, a small hamlet rimtlcs from Skibherecu they sacked the coast guard station, took all arms and objects likely to be useful in thur march. Tbe magis trates, sitting in solemn council at KUlarney, bearing of tho advance of this tonnidable body, and no troops yet arrived, despatched a mounted orderly to Killorglin, a small town some miles distant, to collect the constabulary. Another mounted mteseiger was despatched from Killorg -1 n for Cahirciveeo, but on the road ho was met by a party of tbe advancing Fenians, among whom, Uis asserted, was the Geneial.

Before tbe Fenian force conld reach Killarney troops arrived from Cork, and not bolus folly ormuJ, nor meeting the reinforcements expected from Dublin, tbe; tnrncd aside from Killarney towards Kenmare. Several hundred troops ar rived from Dublin In a few hours afterwards, and then pursuit was commenced. Cars were col lided to convey the troops in the direction of Hu.marc, but without leading to any collision or mutiny. The Fenians were well guided, and, although the greatest cifcrta were made to overtake them, all were unsuccessful, 'they passed in force (hiouch ibo gao of Dnnlo, dispersed over the loo>< ICbMountain.and Urns eluded the military. Several hundred troops surrounded Toomics wood last right under the direction of Mr. Her bert and o'her residents, and, although they knew that a party of Fenians was concealed there they could not catch a single man. Several times dur ing the night the gi-mrlcs Uhacd the Fenians con versing, but os It was dark it was deemed advisa ble not to pursue them til] aaylicht. TLc'ioouilrh Mountain overlooks the Lower Lake, and u is likely they will escape by boats, which (he people abo.it will readily supply if not 100 closely watched by the soldiers. On Tburs daynighi upwards ot fifteen hundred (soldiers, composed ot Infantry and artillery, were concen trated at Mallow, a point which commands the whole south of Ireland, from which troops could be poured at a very short notice to any district necessary. • They arc under command of Brigadier General Hot-lord. It was rumored last night that a rising would take place lu Dublin and Waterford early in tbe ensuing week: but the measures taken to meet seek go far to di. courage these ideas. Tbe mili tary in Dublin are air confined to barracks, and stand ready for a moment's notice—lnfantry, guns loaded; cavalry, booted and spurred. ’ihe Head Centre for Liverpool was arrested last night; also two American Colonels, Lawler and Uialy. They were all cngagoi in destroying treavtuahio documents at the time ofarroit. A boat from a man-of-war Ijlni outside Cahir clreen had been sent in with marines to asjlslin defence ottiio town.

The amount of deposits was $52,000, and the assets $50,000. Among the depos itors was the County Treasurer, who nad $27,000 there, which the county will not lose. The deposits of the bank were used for speculation, by which $45,000 were lost, and the bank never really had any bottom. Organized on a nominal capital of $50,000, but a small proportion was owned by the bank. The President was chief owner,hold ing $45,000 of the stock, while five others held each SI,OOO. The Government securi ties deposited with the Comptroller of the Currency, as redemption tor the bills Issued, were borrowed and paid for by the currency received from the Comptroller! so that about §5,000 appears to be all the actual capital the concern ever bad above its debts. On such a caplialit is not strange that a crisis should at length overtake it.

Woodruff, as Prrsidcntor the “ Hydrostatic Paper Company.” dated Niagara Faba, February Ist, IS6I, addressed to paper manufhrtnrors. alleging that the process cf bleaching paper pu>p 07 pneumatic pressure; ottered to the public by tee. M la a direct and positive infringement of the patent* and rights of the Hydrostatic Paper Company, and that my entire process is embraced In that ot the said Hy crostanccompaiy.and that they will prosecute for infrlcgemcnts all persons who atjempt to use the pneu matic process under grants irom me. Sncb statements, in the &coot the facts of the case, are absnrd, and. 1 rearet to be compelled to say, are maliciously lalse and libellous, and l shall hold the author or authors thereof to a strict accountability. In the meantime I leave tne merits ol tho question to ail men qual'fled to jodec. The majority of my patents, embraced In my “pro cess,” are anterior to any held by the “Hydrostatic Paper Company, and I have only to leave the public to say who are the infringers there:/. Ibavescomitted to most eminent counsel snch cf my patents as bear dales subsequent to, together with copies of the patents under which the Hydrostatic pa per Company claim their process, and alvo herewith the opinion of such counsel on tne Question cl Infringe ment. 0 That this question may bo properly understood. I will heie stale that the patents held by the Hydrostatic Paper Coirpany were asa’gned to them by tne patent ee B,>i«srs. ELI- Jones and D.S. FA BQUH ARSON and 1 am tot aware that tbelr so-called process 13 em braced tu any other patents whatever. My own process la embraced la net less than tea (10) different patents, and tne use or operation of the pneu matic pressure I do not regard absolutely necessary In working my process succefliluJy, either In the nm redaction of fibrous sabstanres to Paper palp, or In bleaching the same; but 1 ociliro the pnenmattc prin ciple tar superior to the hydrostatic, and will prove more successful, solar as either may be required. Respectfully, UaRKI-ON a. MEECB. Fort Edwards, N. r„ Feb. 30th, iS«7. r£o WHOM IT MAT CONCERN. As tlie attorney of HARRISON B. MESCH, I pro cured the several patecu tie now hnids for Improved Processes in \LeMamifactare of Paper Stock, And am familiar with each and ever; one of thorn. I Lave ai*o carefully trammed the patents Issued to Jones and Fatqnharion, one bearing date March nth. 1366, for an improved apparatus for bleaching of paper slots, and out dated June sth, 1863. for an Improved process of treaties wood, ctc« f«r tho manufacture cf paper pulp, These two are denominated the Hydro static Process. 1 have no UcsltAtum tu saying that none of the pro cesses patented hv Mr. MEBCH, or which he holds, and which constitute the MEECH PROCESS, So called, ora in any manner Identical with the Hydro static Process, nor do they tufting* the same. Two cl the patents held byilr.aleech arc these with which I have been connected as owner. The first was Issued tomyselfon my own app Icatlon, July mat,1366. It was fbr an improved process in the manufacture of pap»tnocfc. The othetlsraed to myself and ilarruoa B.Metch, ft,r an improvement In thebleachlrgof paper Each of these processes Involved the use of the pnbuetatic pnsanxmn, In the manner described ~ln each ct them re spectively. The useot pressure ass part ol sich pro cess, whether applied them respectively. The use ol Pleasure as a pan of such process, whether applied by steam, air, gas. water, or otherwise. Is cot patentable lathe present stated them; bat an Improved meth od cl applying such pressure may be the subject ot a patent. The Hydrostatic mode may be the subject ol a patent so jar as the same Is used and useful- So like wise maybe any other new and useful mode—as the pnenmatle. But »nch modesofpnxlcclngthe pressure are entirely dltunet from each other. Neither the Hy drostatic or Pneumatic process are patentable except as a new and nselol mode of obtaining a result, as such they are entirely distinct from, and independent o£ each other. I am well acquainted with the many processes In use fbr reducing straw, grass, etc, to a condition suitable lor the manufacture of paper, and I am clearlv of the opinion ihat the process practiced by Harrison B. Meecn, and known aa tne Ucech Process, is superior to any ether, if not the only one by which the grass*s can be successfully worked. That they can be worked by bis process, both profitably and success. Italy, I know. JOEL TIFFANY. Albany, February 20th, 1567.
