It believes in the principles or Irish nationality lought ion by the Red Band or Ulster. by the immortal Owen Roe. by the gallant Sarsfield, by the undauuted Gare, hy the never-to-berforgottlen Tone, and by the Society of the United Irish- men; in the truths so eloquently expound- ed md declared on the acids or Aughrim and Benburh, unit] from the Walls of Lina- elickg in the principles that for centuries have been inscribed in the blood of Eh-in’s beat and bravest-consecrated in ’9s; san- etiiied in 1803; invigorated in '48, and strenztllened and inteusided by the mar- tyrdom or ’67. It believes. in accord with all the peo- ples at the earth who ever achieved it, that liberty is worth fighting for, Indr- that Irish liberty is worth dying ior. It has substantiated this on many an occasion, and will pursue the same course uutil‘lrlsh lrcedom be attained. It despises iaiseliood, cowardice, selfish- res. and hypocrisy, and it has never :-horzged, silvl never will, its pl-indples, its name or "its plstiorm. ’ ' i It has been. and will continue to be, prooi against the arguments or the timid, weak and half-hearted-cowards and discredit its workings, and with trepid resolution and ilslty of purpose, it stands lortli unconousred and undaunted, the one bulwark ol Irisli nstio lieieths only hope and salvation or the race.

It is the legitimate successor to the heroes or ’67, who were preced by the men or '43, who, in turn, ha path blamed for them by the pilreriien of ’9S. Practically apeuking, it is the socie. ty founded by Tone a century ago, unr v.-banged except that in its geogmphic limits it operates without as well as with- in‘ Ireland. It is not a beneilcial institution, like the A. 0. II. or the 1. 0. B. U., or such purely benevolent and maternal societies.
