On Saturday last , whilst our town was in the midst of excitement on account of the great Johnson endorsement meeting, a vehicle appeared at the eastern end of town, over which floated the beautiful green flag of Erin. As the vehicle approached we discovered that this emblem of Ireland’s nationality, was supported by some as gallant spirits as ever espoused any cause, all now enthusiastically enlisted in the Fenian movement. In the party we noticed Major Quinn, and Messrs. Davies, McGraw and Kirwan, whose names attest the land of their nativity. The flag is a green field, in the centre of which is a harp — that harp of which More so sweetly sung —
“Dear harp of my country, in silence I found thee;
The cold chain of sorrow had hung o’er thee long —
Till proudly, my own Island harp, I unbound thee,
And gave thy full chords, to light freedom and song.”
