On the motion of Mr. Martin, three hearty cheers were given 
for the gentlemen who addressed the meeting--three more for 
Old Ireland, O'Connell, and repeal---and yet three more for 
the land we live in.

On the motion of J.T. Gough, the meeting adjourned, and on 
leaving the park, the cheering was renewed and kept up with 
enthusiasm for several minutes.
