Stat* Trials In Ireland?Thslr Post, ponoment? Arrival ot the Overland Mall ?Movements of Victoria?Advance In Cotton? Grent Rise in American Stocks?Another Crisis In Spain?Be v. Sidney Smith and the Price of Potatoes?Mexico and Knglan?k-ASTalrs in all parts of Europe and Asia. The Hibemia, witn ner uauai fpeea, readied Boston i?t half-past seven o'clock on Wednesday morning. She has brought papers from London and Liverpool to the 5th inst. The news is not important. Cotton is up an eighth. / The Ilibernia has brought $180,000 in specie. The Acadia was passed by the Hibcrnia on Monday, sixty miles from Halifax. American stocks have all advanced. Sir Sydney Smith has sold out his Pennsylvania dock at a loss of 40 per cent. The United States frigate Brandywine was at Bombay, waiting for the arrival of the American Ambassador to China. The State Trials have been adjourned until the 15th of January, and O'Connell, weary of agitation has retired for a while to Derrynane. The French Chambers are to meet on the 27th inst. The country is by no means in a satisfactory .state. The Count de Paris, presumptive heir to the throne, is, it is said, a sickly child?at all events he has been seriously ill of late. Prince Polignac, who recently presented himself in Paris, has been ordered to leave it summarily. Othercircumstunces have conspired to render th? French funds very feverish of late. It was currently reported in London, that the differences between Great Britain and Mexico, arising out of the alleged insult to the English flag by Santa Anna, had been satisfactorily arranged between Lord Aberdeen and the representative of Mexico at the Court of St. James. The steamship Britannia, Captain llewitt,which sailed from Boston on the 16th, and from Halifax on the 19th ult., arrived at Liverpool 30th ult., having made the run from Halifax in ten days. The Hottinguer, hence, arrived at Liverpool on the 5th inst. The Salisbury election id over. Mr. Campbell has been returned by a majority of 47 over the free trade candidate, Mr. Bouverie. Th? Hampshire Advertiser mentions rumors to the efl'eet that her Majesty is deeply involved in debt, and that an implication to Parliament may be necessary. The usual monthly meeting of the League took place onThursday,at Covent Garden Theatre There was an immense attendance. The principal speakers were Cobden and Bright. The former treated the abandonment of the eliding scale as certain?as a thing resolved upon. On this head he spoke confidently. lie then applied himself to the question of a fixed duty, and repeated most of the well known arguments against that proposition. The belief is every day extending, that the next session will see a small fixed duty substituted for the sliding scale, by which the importation of corn and fl?ur, direct from the United States, will become a feature in the trade of the two countries. Such a measure, as far as the United States are concerned, will seriously interfere with the operation of the act for the importation of the same description of produce through Canada?in fact, it will give it the i/uietut. The last English tariff has produced a growing trade in American provisions, but a fixed duty on agricultural produce would at oncegive existence to an immense traffic in bread stuffs. ine only places ot worsnip in nong i\ong are a catholic church and an American meeting hours. The advices from Constantinople to the beginning of November, state that the Porte begins to entertains serious apprehensions as to the result of the late movement m Greece. The difficulties between France and Tunis had assumed a still more serious character at the last accounts. Gen. Kandon, with 4000 trooi*>, was still encamped on the frontiers of the Regency. The French colonists in Algiers have returned to Franee in great number*, disgusted and disheartened with the system of colonization adopted by the government. Walescontinuesmore tranquil. There have been a few more Kfbecca riots in Radnorshire, but the military and rural l police are too strong for the rioters. The conduct of the Governor of the Isle of Bourbon and St. Paul, was severely censured by a i?ortion of the British press. The latest accounts from the CapeofGood Hope, represent the Cuffre frontier as in a state of great excitement and alarm, on account of the continued hostilities and inroads of the natives. The inhabitants of Mt-mina were in a constant statr of alarm, at the last accounts, from the repeated shocks of earthquakes. Mount Etna w?w in a state ot unusual commotion. A grand dinner took place at the Palace of St. Cloud on Saturday, on the occasion of the thirtylour til anniversary of their Majesties' marriage. M. Uupin, senr., tbe father of the celebrated deputy and advocate of that name, died recently, at u very advanced age. The MoitiUur publishes the official royal ordinance convoking the Chambers on the 27th of Deer mber. Im Sitrit asserts that the government has abandoned its intention to ask of the Chambers a "donation" for the Duke de Nemours. Account* from Home announce the death of Cardinal Pedicini, Dean of the Sacred College of Rome, aged 74. He was raised to the purple in 1823. It will give some idea of the loss sustained by the holdcraof the sharesof the I nited States Hank when we state, that 100 shares, which sold on Saturday in London for ?900, originally cost the holder ?22,0110 It ia derided by the Postmaster General of Great Britain, that a newspaper stamp will not frank a magazine, or any similar publication, but that the privilege of these stamps is confined exclusively to newspapers. Commercial men who have just viaitcd the large manufacturing towns in the northern and midland eouniies, rgport a stale of activity such as has not l?een seen in them for some time. Wages, however, continue, low. The Pafrir mentions a report that the Pope ia aeriously indisposed. The health of the young Prince of Walca is still in a delicate situation, though hia physicians do not aiein to apprehend any immediate danger. The birth of a daughter to Lady Villiers haa made Sir Robert Peel a grandfather. There is a whisper that the Queen will stand i^?onser for the infant. M. Kngerran,deputy of the National Convention, the Council of Five Hundred, and the Corps Legislatiff, died on the 27tli till , at Avranches, in the !Md year of hia age. The Prince de Joinville is to take a long cruiae in January, in command of a squadron from Toulon. The father of Fanny and Teresa Klssler died a few davs ago at Vienna. He belongs to the period when Prince Kstrrhiuy was the Maecenas of great musicians. M. Llssler waa his copyist, and coined for him almost all the works of Joseph Haydn. Lady Frances Frerton gave a grand ihjnntr a fa Jourchrllr, in Belfrave mare, after the inarriafe of her neice, Misa (iieville, to the Karl of Maren. The trouuta? of the lovely bride (who waa to be given away by the I Hike of Wellington) coat nearly ju.tmo. t The murderous assault upon Mr. Waller's family y inTipperary, has, besides the death of MiaaVereker, eventuated in the death of that gentleman, and the T'*1 -J E NE NE tragedy is likely to be consummated by the death of Mrs. Waller, who is not exacted to survive long. A letter from Naples states that on the 9th the Duke de Montobello gave a brilliant ball in honor of the Duke d'Aumale, at which the King, the Queen, the minister*, and the corjm diplomatique, and upwards of tiOOpctsons of distinction were present. A Vienna letter, in the Universal German Gazette says: "A report is current that Prince Leopold, the youngest son of the Duke of SazeCoburg Cohary, is to marry the Queen of Spain. This report has gained great credit in the upper circles." It is said that the Government are uneasy at the Duke of Bordeaux's visit to England ; and some color is given to the report by u statement which ap{>earea in the Times, that Prince Polign&c, who lad come with four children to spend the winter at Paris, had been ordered by the police, on Monilav in unit if in fnrfv-pif?ht hours 1 * J ~ "o It is confidently asserted that her Majesty has expressed her intention of paying a visit to the King of Prussia, at Berlin, at the end of the approaching London season, as a return to his royal courtesy at the baptism of the Prince of Wales. It is likewise stated that her Majesty contemplates going from Berlin to Paris. The' latter event will become still more probable, if report speaks true, and Louis Philippe comes to England to exert his powers of persuasion. Wii.i. ok the Late "Sheriff Parkins."?There are probably very few of our readers in this community who do not recollect to have heard of Joseph Wilfred Parkins, who died about two yean* since, leaving the whole of his property, personal and real, of very large amount, to Mr. <iecrge Beat, of New Jersey, at whose house in Newark, the eccentric Ex-Sn?-riff of London departed this life. Parkins left amongst other relatives, a sister,Mrs. Isabella Findlay, his next of kin, who commenced a suit in opposition to the will, but died during its progress, leaving it to be continued by her husband. The opposition to the will originated in conseouence of the representations of a person named Bcatty or Batty, who had been left in a former will a small legacy, which was omitted in the last one.and who represented Mr. Parkins as having been of unsound mind at the periodjol'its execution. The case was decided on tne 2d instant in the Prerogative Court, London, and in favor of Mr. Best, who is thus secured in the possession of this very large property, consisting of n small cs'ate in Cumberland. England, upwards of 100,000 worth in the jurisdiction of the Prerogative Court in which this action was brought, and oesides a large amount in France and this country, the value of which does not appear in the proceedings. It aimeared in the course- of the trial that Sheriff Parkins had never made in his previous testamentary acts much provision for his sister; the utmost he had at any time allowed being a life annuity of $500 a year, and by his will ol 1H27 the residue of his estate was given to the Cientral Dispensary, Newgate street, London, and to trustees for forming anil endowing alius houses. Subsequently, however, lie became auite alienated from liis sister. The sentence of tne learned judge occupied upwards of five hours in its delivery, being chiefly occupied witli an examination of the evidenc* as to the state of mind of the deceased. The decision was that he was perfectly sane, and of course the validity of the will was established. Mr. Best owed his good fortune to the fact of his being the grandson of a Dr. Jameson, "an old and much esteemed schoolfellow" of the eccentric Mr. Parkins. (Correfpondence ol the Herald.) London, Dec. 4, 18-13. American Affain?Marked at they arc?Wind and Steam Packets?Dr. Lhrdnn* and Ca/>t. Heavyside?Slate of the Continent?Dtatht, $-c. $-r. American subjects continue to occupy a great share of public attention. The annexation of Texas, and the taking possession of the disputed ground on the Oregon Territory, which it .appears are likely to be alluded to very prominently in your President's speech, will create avast sensation in (ireat Britain, and 1 fear will not be very readily acquiesced in by our diplomatists. Much has already been written and much is being written on these two topics just now. Captain Marryatt who has essayed to give us a work on Texas, has been sadly, but nevertheless very justly cut up?lor it appears in his " Travels of Monn. Violet," just out, he has been picking and stealing from others without acknowledgment. Our daily and weekly press for the last fortnight, has been out trumpet-tongued against American repudiation, and taking the initiative from the crotchetty canon of St. I'nul's (Sydney Smith) ?re1 showering all sorts of hard names against transatlantic credit, honesty, and honor. There is probably some justice mixed with much injustice in this wholesale attack on the Slates, for after all there is no reason why all should be condemned for the faults of a few.? The self-appointed commissioner, Gen. Dufl" Green, has perhaps done more harm than good by hu crude and tedious letters, which he has oeen forcing on the press. The consequence is, that I hose insatiable dogs of war,the press, who never leave a subject till they have hunted itto death, and turned aim twisted it into all sorts of shapes, have tossed the poor United States so in the blanket of public opinion, that it will take some time before they can recover their breath and decide whether they have any bones broken or not. The Spectator ol the 18th ult. came out with an article headed Brother Jonathan and John Bull, or Faults on Both Sides." The Atlas of the same date also comments upon and notices, with an especial degree of favor. Gen Green's letters and exertions to bring about a commercial treaty between England and the United States. It concludas thus: "Honesty and common sense are alter all the best diplomatists, and a straightforward answer to a stnghlforward question."?'Do you desire a closer commercial allianer with the United States, or do you noil' would, in the present situation of affairs, be worth all the |>arliamentary palavar thm will be poured forth liclwrrn ihiu mid llip >>mi iif net! wxunn ? 1. the same strain follow the Age, Argus, and other o the weekly paper* ; and the reverberation of thes< canonical attacks is now manifesting itself in tlx provinces. It appears certain that a vast commercial inter course must always be kept up between the twe countries, and the imports of flour and provision* which we are receiving directly from the States and indirectly through Canada,are rapidly and dailj increasing. From Canada there were reported last week at Liverpool, S77 quarters of wheat 4768 barrels of flour and 171 barrels of peas. The flour has met with a ready sale. Some hundred* of barrels of United States flour have been sold ir bond at 22.-1 to 22s 6d per barrel?at the same period last year the nrice of the last named articU was 26s 6d to 27s 6a per barrel. The supply, however, as winter approaches, wijl cease. The increase in the stock of Cotton at Liverpoo up to last week was about 222,#70 bales over thai ot last year. The increase of import* 125,233 bales, and on exports to the same date last year the decrease was 12,!KO bales. The first cargo of the new crop arrived at Liverpool on the 17th by the ship Kelly, Capt. Maie, from Newt (rleans. Sneaking ol New Orleans. 1 may call attention to tlie fact oi eight vessels being now on the berth at Liverpool, loading for that |H>rt?the tonnage of which may be stilted at MMO tons. Two other vessels of 1700 tonnage sailed also last week from thence. There arc one or two loading in London for the same port. American cheese begins lo be in much request, 300 barrels and boxes sold readily at public pale on tl?e 2-lth ult., and fetchcd rood prices. The merchants of Liverpool are determined to afford every facility to the shipping trading to that port. I ?ee it Mated that a capacious tidal harbor and a vast floating dock are to be formed at Birkenhead. on the Cheshire shore of the Mersey.? The tidal basin is to have an area of forty acres ?three times the extent of Princes' Dock, Liverpool ; and it will never have a less depth of water than twelve feet : the gated dock will have an area of a hundred and twenty acres, a space exceeding that of all the docks in Liverpool. The Oxford and the Adirondaeke, which arrived at Liverjwol on the 20th and 21st respectively, brought news to the 1st and 3d November, from New York, and the'steamer Britannia at Liverpool, on the 29th, has brought news of a fortnight later. The t Jreat Western has gone to Liverpool to lay up for the winter, and undergo her usual overhauling previous to her resuming her station on the New York line in the spring, in connection with the Great Britain. Capt. Itosken has written x letter to the Liverpool Albion, on the. subject of the trial ot weed between the I'rineeton and hi; vessel, iii which he disputes the distance stated, and expresses his opinion that the Great Western would have passed the Princeton if the vessels had been going into, instead of coming out of port, lie also diflrra with Mr. Ogden as to the strength of the tide. He however re-asserts that it is n great triumph for the screw or propeller. c>n the 3oth ult. a half yearly^neeting of the share ; ' ' / t W V ( W YORK, FRIDAY MOR holders of the British American Land Company, established to promote colonization in the eastern township of Lower Canada, was held to consider matters of importance affecting the interests of the undertaking. The < Jovernor, Mr U. R. Robinson, was in the chair. It appeared from a statement submitted to the meeting, that the sales of land in Cunada by the company in 1843, have been 2I,71(> acres, value ?]ti,300 15s 9d. The sales in Kngland, prepayment with free passage, had up to the end of September, been 700 acres, at 7s (id per acre, producing ?262 10s. The ( reply to various questions, stated that the sales of land had been made to bona fide settlers, but that payments were deferred for ten years; interest at the rate of six per cent being charged, and a title to the land not being given until the purchase money was all paid. The company had obtained a great object in inducing the government to relinquish a money payment equal to ?90,000, on the giving up by the corporation of a portion of their lands. The general news of the past fortnight is not very imimrtnnt If imiuiH im flip r*itv thut l.nrrl AliprHi'fn has declined to enter into any negotiation with the Mexican minister. Mr. Murphy, on the affront lately offered to the British Hag, and that lie intends sending oyt a new minisjer to Mexico in a frigate, which will call at Jamaica, where the minister will take a squadron down with him to the Mexican coast, and require an apology for the affront before landing. In the Bail Court, on the 25th ult., a motion of a formal nature was made in the case of lleavisidc t'i. Lardncr, about the manner of serving upon the defendant, in America, a copy of a scire facias to revive the judgment which has been obtained against him. The celebrated Barnard Gregory, the would-be tragedian,''and infamous editor of the Satirist, has been sentenced to twelve months imprisonment, for libels on the Duke of Brunswick, and his solicitor, Mr. Vallance; and the publisher of the Age has been found guilty of the same offence, but sentence is deferred. By the bye, this once celebrated print, notorious for Us seurility, is 110 more, having been incorporated with the Argus, a paper whicn was started in opposition to it by Westmacott. A day or two after lie had sold the copyright of the Age for ?10,000, lie set up a paper 10 run it down, and took an office at the very next door. But this was only of a piecc with other exceedingly creditable (t) literary speculations in which he was engaged. Another nonentity, the Cerberus, u paper advocating int three separate divisions, und by separate writers, whigism, radicalism, and toryism, is ajso defunct. Such an inconceivable monstronsity could be hardly expected to find favor with the public. The daily pajiers have come to the determination to raise their price Id, viz: to (id per copy. Lieut. Munro and Lieut. Grant, the duellists, were to have surrendered to take their trial on Saturday, out owing to the illness of the former it has been postponed to next Sessions. The conspiracy in South Wales ill said to be 011 the point of breaking up, a great feeling of insecurity prevailing amongst the conspirators themselves, aiia each man fearing that another may denounce mm to the authorities*. The trial of Mr. O'Connell and his brother conspirators has been fixed for the 15th January, aw tlie traversers urged that they could not get up their defence before. _ I do not recollect any time since the last revolution in France, when ihe accounts from almost eveery part of Southern Europe indicate such an unsettled state of affairs as at present. The French are rapidly increasing their steam marine, and it in observed that the works for fortifying the capitol have been proceeded with for the last fortnight with more than ordinary activity, and that the King, attended by several of the Marshals of France, has visited them more than once. Russia, ever ambitious, ever intriguing, is represented as now endeavoring to found a new Empire in Europe on the ruins of Greece and the Italian States, at the head of which would be a Russiun Prince. The Duke of Bordeaux's visit to this country is looked upon with considerable uneasiness. In Spain Olozaga, after considerable hesitation, has undertaken the arduous task of forming a new ministry, Lopez and his colleagues having resigned and Narvaez given up his post as Captain General. The (Jueen and her husband have been paving visits to Sir Robert Peel, the Dukes of Devonshire and Rutland and other distinguished personages in the midland counties, and the royal progresses havf furnished ample detail for the columns ol the dailj prints, to which 1 must refer you for particulars.? Her Majesty intends, it is said, to go to Berlin, anc tbence to Pari.-*, on the breaking up of the Londor season. Rowellas, one of the country mansions of Lord Nuceut, near Exeter, was destroyed by fire on the 23atilt. The damage is estimated at three or foui thousand pounds. Among the recent deaths are the Countess ol Mnvo, trie Maruuis of Winchester, Lady Sylvester. relic of the late Sir John Sylvester; Admiral I Sir (Iruliam Moore, t?.C. II. ; Com. Douglass, accidently drowned, and Mr. Robertson, the abl< Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society. A pension of ?200 a year has been conferred by tht Queen 011 Sir Wm. Hamilton, Professor of Astronomy and President of the Royal Irish Academy. (Cormpondrnee of the Henld.)

Oh, no i ?bul tlicy say, " we have embarked our hearts. on: I conviction*, our judgment* in this matter?and we i will not abate one |ot or tittle of our tWlHfllim MM I decisions.'' Such men as these are giants. Liu ; there are other men who undertake to lead tin ? people without being able to do no when arrested accused, charged with conspiracy, and brought un der the control of tribunals, judges and juries.i They can speak well at large aiwcmblics. The; i can drink well, and laugh well, and toast well ;i i public bouquet* and dinnrr^, <*n|H*cia)ly whfn th r wind is favorable and when prospects are smiling but when the day of adversity or of gloom arrive. I then they are at their wits ends?then they forge , the " cause," in order to attend to their own pn i vnte views and interests, and they resort to the le i gal " tinesseing" system, now being pursued b; i Daniel O'Connell anil the Ke|>eal Association. They prove by their conduct that they are notgrea ( men, even though their cause may be great. When great men lead a great cause, the succcm of the cuuse is eventually certain, lirst because tin 1 men don't undertake a weak, a doulitful, or a ba< t cause; and second, because the men will only re , sort to such means as are worthv of it, and an . worthv of them. Hut when little men, selfixl men, second rate men, with mixed views anc i feelings, take up great questions snd causes, thej r magnify themselves by heing connected with tlw f cnuse, out they degrndc the cause by their bemi , connectcd witn it. The truth of these ijtcneral statements is mov painfully, though forcibly, confirmed by wha was going on in lrclan.1 with regard to the prose cution of O'Connell and the other alleged conspira tors on the repeal question. The repeal qneatior in itself is u gn at question; for it is n great ques tion to seek to repeal the parliamentary union ol Ireland with England, una to do this by parlia mentary anct constitutional means. wunoiu vio lencc, illegality, or bloodshed. The pro^ramm* of such a question and such nmnvrmfnl is a grea one, and is entitled to respectful attention. Bu i at last (lie moment of difficulty arrive*. The legality of this proceeding is disputed. The consti tutional character of the movement indented. Th< leaders have to find hail on a charge of conspiracy and the whole world looks on with anxiety to wit ness the cause and the conflict. Rut what do thei aeet On the one hand, a ]>erverse, had spirited, severe Attorney General, seeking hv every meam in his |>ower to drive the individuals accused oi conspiracy to unworthy acts, in order to ohtair time, to quibble, and to disgrace their cause. And i ou the other hand, we behold the accused filler . into the trap or the lure, and resorting to picas ir abatement in answer to an indictment for consnii racy, and praying that the indictment may Ik i quashed because the witnesses were not sworn in " a certain form and manner. i Besides this, there are motions resorted to to oh, tain delay : conies of this, and copies of that dei niaitded, which are never applied for ; and discussions carried on by the hour and the day a* to whether the court shall, or shall not. follow iti i usual practice. Mr. O'Connel pleads tnat because the witnesses to the indictment were not sworn ir a certain manner, therefore that he is not guilty . under the indictment, and the Attorney General )RK 1 NIJSG, DECEMBER 22, 19 demurs to that plea a* bad in law. To argue the demurrer,' supposing the defendants join in it, will , take^poni? sav one, others fay two terms; and j when/nt shalf have been decided, still the real , question remains untouched?and yet that real | question must and will be at last decided ; which | is, is this repeal agitation legal or illegal, constitu- j tionul, or otherwise "? i Since I last wrote you, on the 3d inst., every day's post from Ireland has brought some | new subject for regret to those who love j that country and sincerely desire hor prosperity. ( Every day has brought letter upon letter and ( column upon column, full of narrations of ( the mutual attempts at juggling (for it is nothing i else), practiced by the Attorney General on the one j hand, and by .Mr. U'UonneU anil ins repeaicrs on the other; and one has not known which most to deplore^ the spectacle of the law officers of the crown reporting to sharp practice and to mean and artful trickery, or the other spectacle of leaders of a great public national movement not having courage enough to meet the charge brought against theni as repealers should do, l>y a straightforward manly plea of Not Giiilty.? For either O'Connell is sincere in his re|M?al movement, or he is not. If he is not sincere, if he only proposes to bluster and bully, to raise large sums of money, and te spend them; to collect an enormous quantity of " rint," and to appropriate it in objects more or less objectionable or <^icst?onabl?, tnen indeed ho deserves the exerrat;on of all Christendom. But if he is sincere ; if he is conscientiously |?ersuadt'd that the repeal of the Union, ns far as the Parliament is concerned, is essential and indispensuble to the happiness and prosperity of his country?then he should act in harmony with his principles and convictions, and not seek to delay the termination of a question which must be brought tou trial, and which will be so brought in spite of all his dilatory pleas and motions to the contrary, viz. is the agitation of repeal in and by the means hitherto resorted to,legal and constitutional, or not! And really one is astonished at the coureo which O'Connell adopts if lie be really sincere. For whilst this indictment is pending against him, and which contains all the charges which could be brought together connected with the repeal movement, he cannot proceed with his repeal agitation. The people, the great mass of those wno constituted his repeal meetings, do not understand all the legal juggling now going on. They want repeal. O'Connell has convinced them that Ireland ought to have her own parliament?and they believe that with such a measure would arise peace .satisfaction, harmony, national and individual prosperity, and every other good which a great nation could desire. Believing this they demand repeal?aad now they sec O'Connell resorting to sham pleas and motions for delay. They ruh their eyes, and ask, " does he show the white feather 1" I know there are some people who take a great interest in all this "snecial nleadincr." and who are much amused by the technicalities of judicial dig- ( nutes and forensic display. They stand, like the 1 backers and ihe botlle holders ot prize lighters, and say, "(lo it. Dan," and "That's right, Smith !" 1 Hut, after all, this is sad work when a nation's in- , terests, and a people's peace and welfare are at i stake. It is miserable chicanery at all times, un- i der all circumstances, and for all cuuees: but when i a grand national question is at lEtsue, to near quibbleB madi' by theAttorney General as to whether he I should give a copy of the caption of the indictment 1 to the traversers, and whether he should supply ' i a list of the names of the witnesses from the back of the indictment to the same parties, and to hear arguments about four day rules, and half a day not counting jn the four?ana to Hee counsel after counsel,ambitious to rise to debate such matters?I avow I feel inyself ashamed of all the parties concerned in such a system, both of attack and defence, and feel no respect whatever for any one man engaged in the contest. 1 have thus began my letter, because 1 wish your readers at once to feel that 1 have no stirring and thrilling incidents to relate or place before thein ; that the parties are in a crouching or shuffling attitude ; that there is nothing like a "plain, stand-up fight" going on ; and that even the Judges seem to 1 mmiirnl line 1I1CII 1IIUL|'< lllll IHA ) (IIIu tV UVVtUV vilv MIVIMV... this way, and unotJier moment just the opposite. So the Government Was summoned, since 1 luM i wrote to you, a special Grand Ju?y, to have new ! indictments laid before them against O'Connell r and others; and then, when they met, abandoned - $ejr announced infention, Hnd pres( ntcd none. I In this state of affairs nothing is certain. The i Attorney General of Ireland may, on some fair morning, change all his present intentions und en I ter a nolle jtrotequi, and commence new indictments t or informations; and Mr. O'Coiuiell may, on his part, bring ati action lor damages against tne Attorney General, and all persons concerned in the indictf ment so abandoned. All this is possible, because . the present prosecution is neither conducted on the [ one hand, or defendtd on the other, upon high and national grounds. > The indictment found by the Grand Jury against . Mr. O'Connell is almost a volume. The witnesses i were principally official persons, and the evidence they gave, was no doubt correct, but technical.? They were few in number, but proved the leading facts to the satisfaction of all tne Grand Jnrymen except one, and that one afterwards declared in r Court that he was not satisfied with the finding of his brother jurymen. 1 The counsel engafied by the Crown .'igninst t the defendants, are the Attorney General (Mr. j Smith); the Solicitor General (Mr. Green): Mr , Sergt. Warren; Mr. Brewster, Q. C. ; Mr. Tomb, i Q. C. ; Mr. Freeman, Q. C., as well as Messrs. > llolmes. Napier, and Smiley. They are certainly t able and distinguished men, but the host of talent . opuosed to them is very great indeed. It is said that O'Connell and the leading memi bets of the lleoeal Association will yet be prose ; cuted for belonging to lhat society, and that incase > of a verdict of acquittal, f5ir Kobert Peel would in n troduce a bill next session, at the very first day, to - rat down that, and all similar societies, by law.? . There are indeed reports of indictments for high t treason, but I doubt very much, indeed, whether - sueh indictments, if presented, would be found. r There are a variety of calculations made and ! afloat as to the time which the tri^l of this proscr cution will take. Some say as long as Warren > Hastings'trial?eight years. Others annouece that 1 O'Connell will probably subpernu some thousands of t witnesses, composed of those who were ]Jfesent at ; each of the "monster meetings," in order to show , that they were not seditious or treasonable meet ings, arid that the object proposed to be accotn plished, and the measures adopted to secure the ir end, were at once legal and constitutional. t O'Connell is not well, lie is much annoyed and c harrassed by this prosecution. Instead of goading ; the government and attacking it, he has now todei, fend himself from the charge of conspiracy. His t health is affected by this, and he has been advised to leave Dublin and proceed to the house of his - *?n John for tresh air and exercise, quiet and re; taxation. The plea of abatement wf O'Connell to the int dictment in, that as by the act of 56 George 3d, witnesses examined before a grand jury were to be h sworn in open Court, and inasmuch as those sworn in this case were not so sworn, that the indictment I is null and void. The Irish Teinore Commission has not yet got to > work. I know not how it is, but so it is, that there i aiyear* to be a sort of fatality about every tiling I connected wjth Ireland. When the Wclsn Coiiit mission was named it got to work instanter.? ; There was no delay, no mystification, no doubt or t difficulty ; and most swarcliin* will be its inquiries. Itut when the Irish Commission was nj<i>ointed l there were differences at once as to who should be t chairman?and now there are difference* us to how ih.> nhipi'f tn lm iirmliiriltelied is fn be set about?SO that in fact nothing is done; nml instead of a good, i Botwd, able report ready lo lip prrwncd to 1'arlia. mcnt on the first dav of next session, upon which I *omc pr<'at pmrtirnl measure* could be founded, it . in very probable that the whole of next year may . be lout in enquiry, and no bill be brought for ward until if even an noon as that. In the I mean time " destitution" is increasing, the tide of t poverty in rolling rapidly onward, the people become more hungry, more naked, more houseless and firHens everv month, and consequently tRey ?re lean and lean disposed in favor of British rule.? , The monster evil of Ireland 14 destitution ; and if . Sir Robert Peel'* government would provide food f and labor, clothes and coals, Mr. O'ConncIl would , soon be compelled to abandon his repeal agita? lion, for he would have no follower^. But when I the destitution of the poor in Ireland is taken into 1 consideration?when it is remembered that there I are nx millions of people scarcely in a condition 1 eqnal to the poor in the I'mon of Houses of Kng1 land?and thnt two out of those six millions are in an actual condition of starvation?it is of no use 'mm 1113 words or matte*?tor there nre two tiul1 lions of starving people in Ireland?then there are I twomilhons who exist on about half aa much to- 1 tatoes aa they ought lo eat?and who never see 1 . meal, beer, or bread?the third two millions have portions of potatoes, bread, and butler milk?and 1 1 that's all?now when there are six millions of peo- , 1 pla thus left in destitution, who ought to wonder , that they cry for repeal ! Nothing can be worse 1 1 than their condition, and they hope without know' ing why, that repeal might improve them. Hence 1 I the secret of O'Connell s force. SERA 143. The Repeal Association continues to bold it* nettings, but those which li<u? assembled since I r asl wrote to you have not been characterized by t my very marked measures, except the deternuna- h ion to raise large funds for Mr. O'Cennell's "Tesimonial." Tins is called "the Compensation f h'und," and Mr. Doheny stated, at one of the nieetngs, that Tipperary alone would send ?3000. .1 Trie Association has published an "Address to c lie People of Ireland," complaining that all the c government offices in Ireland, from the Lord Chan- } ;ellor downwards, are all filled with Englishmen, f ind Scotchmen,Welshmen or colonists?in fart by iny but Irishmen. The address states that when i] epeal shall be obtained this will take place no f onger. There are two evils, it goes onto suy,to guarded against in all etlorts relative to repeal. 2 l'he first to be guarded against is a separation from r England, and a dismemberment of the empire, c rhc second evil to be guarded against is a Catho- u ic ascendancy in Ireland. O'Connell contends in f his address, for he is its author, that there is no e langer whatever of a territorial separation since [rrlnnd is attached to the l^iieen, to her tanuly, ind to the nritish constitution. And. then, with e^ard to Catliolic ascendancy, the address mainains that it is not proposed or desired, and could lot take place.

The General demands, with a beautiful .simplicity, vhence this morbid hatied of America? But this quesion, all affecting as it is, is stolen from I'ilpay's fables? ' A fox," says I'llpay, " caught by the leg in a trap, near lie farm yard, uttered the most piercing cries of distress ; orthwith all the birds of the farm yard gathered round lini, and seemed to delight in his misfortune j the liens :huckled, the geese hissed, ducks quacked, and chanti:Ieer with shrifl cockadoodles, rent tin: air.

But I cannot (hut my eyes to enormous dishonesty ; nor, remembering their former state, can 1 restrain myself from calling on them (though 1 copy Hat an) to , pring up from the gulph of infamy in which they are ( rolling, and ' "Awake, arise, or be forever fallen." ( lam astonished that the honest State* of America do J not draw a Cordon Sanitaire round their unpaying bre- J thren, that the truly mercantile New Yorkers, and the ' thoroughly honest people of Massachusetts, do not, in ) their Kurupean visits, wear an uniform with S. 8., or Solvent States, worked in gold letters upon the coat, and 1 receipts in full, of all demands, tamboured on the waist- 1 coats, and "our own property" figured on tlieirpanta- 1 loons. But the Ueneral seems shocked that I should say the 1 American* cannot go to war w ithout money; but what do 1 I mean by war? Not irruptions into Canada Not the embodying of militia in Oregou; but along, tedious, maritime war of four or five years' duration. Is any man so foolish as to suppose that Rothschild ha* nothing to do with such wars as these f and that a bankrupt State,without the ]>o\ver of borrowing a shilling in the world, 1 may not be crinplcd in such a contest1 We all know i that the Americans ran fight. Nobody doubts their ' courage. I see now, in my mind's eye, a whole army on the plains of Pennsylvania, in battle array, im- I mense corps of insolvent light infantry, regiments ' of heavy hone debtors, battalion* of repuiliators, 1 Khiirailu^ i,f hnnlrrnnld u ifli v/ins .ill I oil their banners, and are alieno on their trum|>ets; ail 1 these desjierate debtors would light to the death for 1 their country, &ud probably drive iuto the sea their in- ' vailing creditors. Of their courage, 1 repeat again, I 1 have no doubt. I wish I had the same confidence in their 1 wisdom. But I believe they will become intoxicated by 1 the flattery of unprincipled orators ; and, instead of en- ' tering with us into a noble competition in making calico 1 (tlie great object for which the Anglo-Saxon race appears 1 to have been created) they will waste their happiness and ? their money (if they can get any) in years of silly, bloody, ! foolish, anil accursed war, to prove to the world that j Perkins is a real tine gentleman, and that the carronadet of the "Washington" steamer will carry farther than ] those of the Britisher "Victoria" or the "Robert Peel'' ' vessel of war. I am accused of applying the epithet repudiation to 1 States which have not repudiated. Perhaps so ; but then ' these latter States have not paid. But what is the difference between a man who says, "I don't owe you anything, 1 ami will not pay vou," and another who says, "I do owe ! you a sum,"' and "who,> having admitted the debt, never pays it ? There seems in the first to be some slight color 1 of right, but the second is broad, blazing, refulgent, nie- ' ridiau fraud. It fmay betvery true that rich and educated men, in 1 Pennsylvania, wish to pav the debt, and that the real objectors arethe Dutch and (ierman agricultuialista, wlio cannot be made to understand the efleet of character u|ion clover.

The real quarrel is the unpaid world rrr?M* the State of Pennsylvania. And now, dear Jonathan, let me beg of you to follow the advice of n real friend, who will say to you what Wat Tyler had not the virtue to say, and what'all speakers in,the eleveu recent Pennsylvania elections have cautiously abstained from saying, " \'ake a great effort ; book up at once and pay."

We resume the thread of the narrative where our last summary cut it oH. The "O'Connell compensation," vulgarly calUd "rent," was collected in the churches and chapelt* on Sunday, the 19th. The produce, so far an known, is immense?about three times the average; in the Dublin district it amounted to more than ?4,000. At the usual weekly meeting of the Repeal Association, on the 20th, Mr. O'Connell began the proceedings by saying, that not a moment should be lost before they expressed their veneration for ihe Kight Reverend 1ne Catholic Prelates of Ireland. He read the resolutions recently passed by ihe archbishops and bisiiojw repudiating a state provision, and proceeded to eulogize the hierarchy i? Thi* wax emphatically the period for the Roman Catholic Bin hops to upeak out. Thar had done so manfully.? 1'he thiug that people refused least was moniad provision [or their wants ; but their prelates would have none of it. (Cheers) What had religion to do with the mammon of the world ! What connexion had haan discovered with It and the BUhops and Fathers of the Church of old t Yes ; [here had been the connexion of antagonism?(Cheers )? Their prelates were too marh devoted totha altar they erved^and regarded too much the purity af their robe*, to acccpt the paltry pay of any government?(Cheers.)? Mr. O'Connell went on to say that these resolutions were ' of no reccnt growth, but some of them were of the data of 1337, when the Whigs were in power. However, as authentic information existed that some such attempt would be made as that repudiated, (for the Tory press were ra tlierfreein their statements on the subject,) the p-elates were right in reiterating them. That press laid, " We lon't want the priesta to preaoh religion,hut we want them not to preach rebellion.1' (Cheers.) The Timea < nee red it him for saving that ?<100,000 would he too little, and :hnt it should h?! a million, and said, " Well, let it be* niliion." (Cheers and laughter.) Thus a million of ,>ounds sterling was held out to the Catholic clergy and hey refused it. The Torlea said to them. "Here"* a milion for you?you arc* preacher* of rebellion; had you ascn quiet loyal men, wo should never have thought of laying you." That was the way to makft reliels (Laugher and cheer*.) Ai long as you are good, you shall have lothiug , b?comc rebel* and you shall have a large in :ome. (Laughter.) Lord Cestlercagh had tamed th? Ycsbyterlan*ny the rr<um itonum. How quiet they wers He moved resolutions, which were carried inanimouslv, expressive of the veneration and [mtitude of the Catholic lni?y of Ireland to the. lierarchy for their refusal of the "filthy mammon >1 this world."

There has been a "Ministerial crisis" in ?<pain. \fter the ceremony which gave a parliamentary confirmation to the Qneen's majority, S.

They were requested by the Queen to retain their places; but t was uDdcrstotMl that 8. Lopez would ultimately etire. At tbm point another resignation excited a good leal of speculation.
