Tb(>r itnfuiar frirutft of the Kmerrvld Isle v ho vtere led by tbe exciting cable news of a few witks since to expect tbe sudden libers'.on of "the gem of tbe sen," t?ie elevation of il?- s'ar.dard of C O. 1. K Stephens, aud tbe tbmbnr.g of tbe British lion, are nom*\vnat di-appointed a: the present reticence of the mm at ">he other end of the *re? as to >>p*an affairs. Aftei sn'-h a sounding prolegale from tbe men who wear the green owe decisive action wis expected to follow tbe ne'e* of warning and of preparation. We fake it tbst this silence is ominous to th<? pres. rrt * acres* of tbe Irish cause, and that be. yonri potting John Itn'.l in a passion, and burdn-ing him with the expense of hiring *p!?s ard fhipping troops, the movement vill accomplish little. We make these remark* in no spirit of nnkmdness to the Irienrts of Ireland, bnt if they wish to relieve tbeir suffering country from the troubles which cj press her, they must promise less and perlcim mere: aud above all consent to sacrifice lb*:r prejudices and unite on some just bul priicit ct and moderate line of action, which will secure them the sympathy ot the frienls of Kepublicau institutions throughout tee world. As it is, tbeir e Iter's will not accomplish much, unless, perhaps, they so worry John Full by a continual drain from hispurse, astonakehim anxious to get rid of such ex. pensive dependencies, as Canada and Ireland. w hub at present add nothing to the strength ?{ the I'nited Kingdom, but are likely to prove elements of weakne.-s in case of complication* in other directions.
