The Fenian troubles in New York.

--There is little to add concerning the Fenian troubles in New York. On Thursday, several Circles sent in their adhesion to President Roberts, and others forwarded resolutions endorsing President O'Mahoney. The New York News says:

‘ "The principal feature on Thursday in the progress of the developments which the officers of the Fenian Brotherhood seem to deem it desirable should be made public, was the arrival of the military delegation to Ireland, numbering nine officers. There was, of course, a very great desire on the part of the Brotherhood generally to learn their views in relation to the state of affairs in Ireland. No official report, it appears, has yet been presented, and therefore all that is known of their conclusions is of an unofficial character. It is understood since their return that the impression which has prevailed here, and also apparently to some extent with the British authorities, that a concerted outbreak had been intended at the present time, and that the arrest of Stephens had prevented it, was entirely erroneous. It does not appear to have been looked to, neither was a general outbreak or open revolution now necessary to, or any part of, the plans of the Fenian Brotherhood; and that, therefore, the arrest of the Fenian chief in Ireland, while greatly to be regretted, did not, to any very alarming extent, interfere with the steady progress of the movement in Ireland.

"According to another statement, published in the world, the contributions of the Fenian Brotherhood and the Fenian Sisterhood, in the various States of the Union, to the war fund, from the 11th of September to the 28th of October, were $120,650.22. The list embraces subscriptions of 20 cents, 40 cents, 60 cents, 80 cents, &c., the lowest sum that is received being 10 cents, while the higher sums are $1,000, $1,500, $3,000 and $5,000, and one from California is $7,248.90, which is the largest. On one day $10,319 was received, and on another $10,001, and on others from $9,000, $8,000, and so on. These figures comprise the tenth financial statement to the Brotherhood. What the whole sum received is, is not divulged; but the contributions during the past year have been large."
