New York, Monday.

The Parnell delegates were waited on last night by the Irish Societies, here, and invited to join in the St. Patrick’s Day parade reception to-morrow. They are to head the procession in an open carriage through all the principal streets. They will attend a mass meeting to be held later.

It is significant that no invitation was sent to the M’Carthy delegate to join in the proceedings, in which all prominent Irishmen will take leading parts. He still remains obscure, and is not to be seen in the street or hotel. The Parnell delegates, on the contrary, have received many invitations to social gatherings, and their rooms are crowded with visitors all day long.

The following despatch has been received by the Parnell delegates Montreal City—Parnell to the back bone. No use McCarthy. Signed, George Langan. Many other telegrams of the same nature have been received.
