The special Post Office express, with the mails of the Britannia, reached this city at five o'clock yesterday morniug, in charge of Thomas Pomeroy, Esq., of the Boston Post Office, to whose energy we are indebted for the latest intelligence from Europe. The Britannia sailed from Livcri>ool on the 22d ult., and her news is one week later. It is important. There had been a battle between the Austrians and Italians, in which the latter were said to have been victorious. The chartists are still holding their meetings in London and in the provinces, und are urmiug in the north of Scotland. Intelligence is received of a regular organization of the chartist forces in Scotland. A public meeting has been held at Aberdeen, for the pun>OBe of electing a delegate to the national convention, and measures were adopted for the enrolment of volui* teera. There has been a tremendous excitement in Paris. Not only the people, but the provisional government, have been in a state of turmoil and trouble. Negotiations between the Prussian government and the house of Rothschild, for a new loan, are announced to have totally failed. It is stated in the papers from the Hague, that the Governor General of the Dutch East Indies has been anthorised to declare Menado, at Celebes, a free port. No amelioration has taken place in credit or confidence throughout Europe. The Croatu have set fire to the village of Castel Nuova, containing 2000 inhabitants. The Croats formed a cordon round it, and the villagers were all burned to death, uttering the most appalling shrieks. The whole of that part of Europe, says the European Timet, which skirts the Rhine and borders on France, seems quiet disorganised.? The wildest radicalism has taken root in the Grand Duchy of Baden ; and the secret societies of Germans, Swiss, Baden radicals, and French emissaries seem organising an armed invasion. At Hesse Camel the soldiers and the citizens are at violent issue, the military having attempted to restore their former reign of physical force. The Duke of llessc Cassel has expressed his indignation at the outrages attempted by his guards, whose dissolution as a regiment he has ordered, and some of the culprits are to be tried by courts martial. In Saxony a ftinhtfyl incendiary insurrection seems to be goitg on, which the government cannot succeed in putting down. In Alsace a complete insurrection of the peasantry exists. The troops have been attacked at Mormontior, and fifteen were killed. The rioters were at length repulsed with great loss, and their leader captured. Prince Metternicli was in London. The steamship Hermann arrived at Southampton, from Bremen, on the 20th tilt., on herhomeward voyage to New-York, for which |>orf she leaves Southampton on the 2<ith ult.

Livkhpooi,, April 22,1848?l>A. M. I nhull now, an usual, with the view of making my mull urn in /wrrothc more valuable to the people of America, furnish you the outline? und principal subs' the stamiiui?of occurrences tliut liave ?;ik- n place in the European world in the week, by the Britannia, about to leave us, and refer my readers ic ic more detailed accounts that, anon, will ho Hrmlil-rd to them, lor further particulars. On the whole, there hits been but a meagre supl>ly of news since the departure of the America? meagre in comparison with any other week since the 24th of February. In the first place, I must tell you that the markets have varied so little since the date of my last despatch, (in which I gave a full, though condensed, statement of them,) that 1 have scarcely u shade of improvement to announce. However, I may say. in the words of somebody, they don't " mend worser." In the "rebellions" department, matters are almost ut a stand still. Since the signal failure of the chartist demonstration at the uncommon common, Kennington Common, the country has been wonderfully quiet; for there Rebellion had luul luck." In Ireland, too," rebellion looks" have ceased to look "so giant-like." True bills were found agiiinst the traversers on .Saturday last. Smith (rHrien's trial co willme on on the 13th May. The ? E NE traversers will be allowed to appear by tlieir attorneys. At I-jdinburgh there was a largely attended chartist meeting on the evening of the 17th. A deputation attended from Leith, said to be great in neraldic devices. One lad carried a pole with an inverted crown at the ton; another had a Hag with, " The lion of Scotland has risen from his lair: beware ! whigs, beware ! " The people disiiersed quietly?neither the pensioners, who were lodged in the castle, nor the special con&tubles were required. Tlie Irish anarchists have had their demonstration, in the shai>e of a ?oiree to the gentlemen who wen t i j .. .L i.i i. ?_LI- ... .1... iimoassauors 10 ine rrriirii repnune, m niiicu uir usual amount of sedition and treason was spoated; and the redoubtable O'Brien plainly intimated that his friend O'Gorman, who is studying the theory of barricades in Paris, may return in time to reduce it to practice, in the event of the trial for sedition going against himself and his co-patriots. At this meeting there was some show of fraternization between Young and Old Irelanders; and during the discussion at the Repeal Association 011 Monday, enough was let out to show that a schism has broken out in that body. For the present, however, the appeal of the Messrs. O'Conncll, and the threat to withdraw from Ireland, with the ashes of their father, were successful, and for the present, at least, Conciliation llall adheres to legal and constitutional agitation only. How long this will continue is problematical; but the vigorous proceedings now adopted by the government seem likely to render sedition too dangerous a game to be played with impunity. On Wednesday there was a meeting of several of the most influential merchants, for die purpose ol organizing an association to bring about a retrenchment in the national ex|>enditure, and more equal taxation. Mr. K. Gladstone,who was called to the I chair, said he believed all parties saw the necessity of a change, although there were dilfrrent opinions as to what it should be. He accused the govern| ment of apathy in respect to the commercial interests of the empire. Mr. J. Mulleneux thought the association would strengthen the newly-formed |<arliainentarv party. It is intended to preseut a reuuisition to the Mayor, and shortly hold another public meeting in further iwm nf tin* nKio/ifu ol (h>> un/tiatv You no doubt will regret to learn that " Poor Torn Steele," O'Connell's "head pacificator" in the days when that crafty politician kept Ireland in a state of conHtaut agitation, hopeless of his country's regeneration. and worn out witu anxiety on her behalf, attempted to "shuffle off this mortal coil" by precipitating himself from Waterloo bridge into the Thames, at seven o'clock last evening. At a few minutes before seven o'clock the unfortunate tiffin was observed to alight from a cab in Wellington street; and, having paid the driver his faro, he walked to the toll-gate, put down a penny piece, received his change, and passed on to the bridge. On arriving at the second recess from the Middlesex side, he stopped suddenly, took off his cap?the celebrated cap with which his friend O'Connell crowned him in by-gone days?and.mounting the parapet,threw himself iuto the river. A gentlemau who was crossing . the bridge on the opposite Bide observed the whole occurrence at only a few paces distance ;but so rapidly did the unfortunate man effect his purpose.that it was found impossible to render him any assistance. Happily n waterman was passing through the bridge in a small boat at the moment the unfortunate man entered the water, and with a presence of mind that does hint the highest credit, he Immediately pulled towards him. and with some difficulty at length succeeded in getting him into his boat. The poor man was taken ashore at the Strand lane stairs, and thence conveyed to King's'College Hospital, where he received all the attention his case required, from Mr. Burton, the house surgeon of that Institution. We understand the chit;? injury ho has sustained is the shock to his system, from having fallen flat upon the surface of the water. There can be no doubt that the veteran agitator had contemplated the rash act for some hours at least, as he had been occupied duriug the chief part ofthedayin writing letters at Peele's coffee-house, an establishment he was in the habit of occasionally frequenting. Within his cap. which, as above stated, he placed on the bridge before he threw himself over, was a small piece of pn|?er sealed to the lining with black wax. on which was written?"Tom Steele, county ?f Clare. Ireland."' That Tom Steele never, like O'Connell and some others, made agitation a trade, may ho gathered from the fact that, when he came of age. he entered on a ' beautiful estate iof X'lO Oytj or A'ltl.OOO a year, in the county of Clare. Twenty years of amateur agitation brought him to the Insolvent Debtors' Court, in Dublin. where he was opposed by the present member for Knuis. the O'Oormau Mahon Having taken the benefit of the act. he came to Kugland. and has siuce been living upon an allowance out of bis estate. Mr. Steole took high honors at Cambridge, and is a member of the senate of that University. It may not be generally known that it was Mr. Steele who proposed O'Connell at the celebrated Clare election, front which arose the Catholic emancipation act. Thin is according lo the account given ill the Timrt of this sad affair. It is now 10 o'clock, and our letter* must be mailed before halt past 10. There is no #ign ot the steamer United States. Ai.biona. Onr London Correspondence. London. April 21. 184S Tin* of events still sets in stronu iu Kurope. and each Jay'* mail brings a fragment of the univorsHl wreck which hud taken place iu the old world. Nor ha* the storm nuboiilcil. Tho foreboding* in my last have I wen fulfilled; the elements of war are stirring, and when clouds do meet, tho crash of the thunder will be fearful. Of all Kurope. Kngland alone is quiet, and with a careful hand endeavor* to keep assuuder the inflammable masses. The prodigious effect of the French revolution in every State of Kurope. in favor of the cause of lil>erty. would have been attended with the happiest result* for mankind, if France had been able to establish order in herself. But at the :<amo time that she overthrew a tyrant, she raised a devil in the garb of communism. Tho equality demanded by the communists of France would reduce mankind to the ftate of the wildest of your Indian tribes. It is not by levelling the condition of society that the laboring classes will he benefitted? each step of the social ladder must rise towards a higher degree of prosperity. An attempt of the communists to overthrow the provisional government, has. however failed. The inhabitants of Paris were aroused 011 Sunday morning (16th) by the beating of the gintralr in every quarter of Paris, for the National (iuard to turn not. A notice Appeared in the organ of the clubs, the Communr dr Pari*, calling upon the trades to meet at the Champ de Mars to dUcuss the gravity of their situation. Two hours afterwards. 100.000 men were wending their way to the appointed spot, singing the usual patriotic songs. It. was confidently rumored that It was tin- intention of the communists to seise upon the Hotel de Ville. and to form a new government, consisting of the noted republicans Blanqui. I.edru Roilin. Albert, Flocon, and Nobrier. The iNational (tuard turned out to a man. and 60.000 or them drew up in frout of the Hotel de Ville. determined to defend the provisional government. The whole population of Paris seemed impressed with the belief that it was nccussary to make a demonstration. The plans of the communists wurc thwarted for the moment, and a new pledge ha* been thus given; that the peace of the wurld. as far as France is concerned, is not likely to Im> disturbed; fur should the communists rise to power, the invasion of Belgium, the incorporation of Savoy. Ike.. would be among their first acts. Rut war in Kurope is not the less imminent. I mean a general war?for the war between Austria and Sardinia is carried on with great activity. The King of Sardinia, whatever may be bis motives, has placed himself at the head of the Italian movement, and declared war to Austria, against the advice of Kngland. and in the teeth of treaties All friends of liberty will rojoleo that lie has done so; hut this bold step may lead to a Kuropcan question of the most serious gravity. Kngland has protested against this invasion as la-ing contrary to the spirit of treaties, of which she is guaranty. All Italy is up In arms ; reinforcements arrive from all quarters to the Sardinian army. Kadctzky. ufter U ing driven from Milan, retreated towards Verona, and is at till) present moment cucnmpoti iiciwcon inc only mree strongholds that rt-uiuin in the power of the Austrian*: Verona. Posehlera. nnd Mantua. It is exported that a decisive battle will take place hero. On (he 8th inst. the King of Sanlinia forced the passage of the Mlneio ; the battle lasted two hour.*, and 'i(MM) Austrian* Mere made prisoners. Kndotzki blew up tho bridge of O >ito; but the ItaliauH crtMned the river the next day. and are uow bombarding Pcachiera. Pe*chiora 1h celebrated for the numerous sieges it. withstood In the warn of Italy, amongst which I need onlv notieo that of 1801, when General Bruno, charged by Bonaparte to continue the campaign of Marengo, forced the passage of the Adigo; the Austrian* occupying at that time as they do now. Verona. Mantua. Legnano. and Posehlera. Brune. not willing to leave ouch a place in liio rear, ordered General rhasseloup to lay siege to it. lie had only with him a force of 40tM) men, Italian*. French and Pole*, with 30 pieces of cannon. The Austrian garrison, who were about the same in number, defended themselves with great spirit, nnd made several sorties. The siege vas carried In the month of Jntiiinry. when the weather was very severe. It whs only at the expiration of 14 days that tho broaching batteries could be got ready for play. A tire was then opened, when the belligerent parties concluded an armistice, followed by the treaty of l.unoville, which for the second time tore Italy from the house ot Austria, and reconstituted the Cisalpine Republic at Milan. I'esehiera is situated on tho banks of the lake of Oarda. on two islands, formed by the Mlneio on Its passage from the lake, and presents a pentagon flanked by live very strongly constructed bastions. It is. moreover, well defended by other fortifications, erected after drawings by Vaiiban. The walls are on every side surrounded by a deep stream of running water, and all tha Internal defences are mined There 1* a report that Peschiera has surrendered ?

A large Krench ariuy i8 as?eml>liug on the Alpn Another event of no lex* importance to univer Mil peace. anil which, iu n commercial poiut of view. 1* of greater interest to the I'nited States, in tlx* Danish question. The Ocrmau confederation has decided on tin* incorporation of Schlcswig to that body, anil the greater portion of the inhabitants of tin* duchy being German*. have risen in arms against Denmark Prussia ban been called upon by tbu Diet to assist her German brethren, and ha>< advanced 10.0U0 uieu to their assistance. The Danish monarch bait made it triumphant entrance into the capital of the duchy, after a severe battle with his rebellious subjects, iu which they were completely routed. Lord Palmerston has addressed a note to the Prussian government protesting against the Prussian troops crossing the Kider. Knglaud. conjointly with Franco, having guarantied the integrity of the Danish kingdom. The King of Denmark has appealed to Knglaud. The commerce of Hamburg. In the event of a blockade, will be ruined, as Hamburg must side with Prussia and send its contingent. The Danish minister to the court of Berlin has demanded his passports. The importance of this step of Prussiu (she having determined to cross the Kider). will be best appreciated from the question put in the House of Commons, first by Mr. Wilson, in behalf of British interests, on Saturday, and ou Tuesday (18th) by d'lsracli. in a powerful speech. Lord Paimerston's reply is cautious- very cautious; but will show on what a delicate foundation peace rests. It is as follows : Lord Pai.mkrito?? rose and said : This question is one of the utmost importance to the interests of Kugland. [Hear. hear]. There are circumstances In the previous history of Denmark which make any thing which atrccts the welfare of that Slate of peculiar interest to all men of high feeling. No State has suffered more than Denmark. It lias been the lot of Knglaud at no very remote period to have beeu drawn into acts of hostility towards Denmark, which were alien to the feelings of the government. With regard to the question itself involved in these discussions. 1 trust the house will excuse me if I abstain from following the honorable gentleman cither ou the one side or the other, either as to the question of the right of the Germanic Confederation upon the one hand, or the right of Denmark on the other. [Hear, hear]. The question confines itself exclusively to the duchy of Sclileswig. With regard to Holsteiu no difference exists; it belongs to the Germanic Confederation, aud the King of Denmark is a party to the treaty by which it is guarantied to it. The Oermanio Confederation insists, according to ancient practice, transitions and agreements. Schlcswig must follow the fortunes of Holsteln. The Dairish government resists this proposition. and it is upon this poiut that the difference has arisen. Her Majesty's government has signillcd to both parties Its willingness to interpose its good offices, ill order to bring the question to an amicable termination. It is obvious that in this state of thinirs it would not be befitting for me to state ou whoso siilu the merits of right are. [Hour. hear]. The honorable gentleman has exercised a very wine discretion in bringing under the attention of the house the nature and term* of her engagement* with those countries. I have here the original treaty in which that guaranty has been given. The honorable gentleman ha* road the word* ho fully and so correctly, that I feel it unnecessary for ni<i to trouble the house bv quoting then) again: but I am very ready to coincide with him. and with what appears to me to be the general sense of this house, that it is the duty of Kngland to see that her engagements be made good. [Loud cheering], 1 quite agree with the honorable gentleman that it is not fitting that a country like Kngland should repudiate existing engagements. What is agreed to. that we should stand by. and that we ought to take eare to fulfil; I agrve feUo with the honorable gentleman that it is well that nut only this country, but the other powers of Europe, should understand what are the engagement* by which Kngland is bound, in order that in euteriug Into discussions in which these engagements may be involved, all parties may know what this country will be called upon to perform. [Hear, hear]. The honorable geutleman. however, omitted to state that the guaranty given by Kngland. was given on the same occasion by France. Not only, therefore, is this country bound by that engagement towards Denmark as regards Schleswig. but, whatever that engagement may be, it was equally taken at the same time, and almost in the name words, by the government of France. [Hear. hear. hear]. I have stated my perfect concurrence with the honorable gentleman. that former guaranties given by treaty ought to be respected. At the same time, as I stated in reply to what the honorable gentleman said 011 a former occasion. I must remind the House that in the present case, whoever may be right on either side, the purpose for which the I'russian troops have entered Holstuin, and if they cross the Rider, for which they have entered Schleswig, is not to wrest Schleswig from the Danish crown, but to support a party in that Duchy who hold that the ancient constitution and laws of the duchy entitle them to Ut ciji)*liUttio!)*Uy incorporated with, or attached to, Holsteli). instead of to Denmark. rum if< not. increiore. an aueiiipi 10 conquer scnieswi(f. It in an interference, no doubt. in the international affairs of that country. and with reference to the future lino of succession, which ought t? lie ob*erved. I can only, however. I repeat, express my hope that a matter which, if pre itrd to rxlremitieg. might trail to coniei/uenrei seriously ajf'rcting thr pracr of Europe. may lie adjusted by amicable negotiation between the parties ; ami 1 should hope that the statesmen of great countries. viewing the disturbed. and troubled, and dangrroui condition in which thr terry part of Kuroiir it now placed, will not allow a question which, ax tlie honorable gentleman justly observe*, ban no immediate practical application, but depend* upon a contingency to happen after the death of two person* now living?I trunt. I say. that a question of that sort uiay not be pcrtniUuti to Jead to effect* which rrrry reasonable man would to drrphj dtplnre. [Hear, hear.) Mr. UaitrtiARr observed that the present wa* not a question of right, but a matter of violent oppression? of an invasion, in faet. which had actually taken place. I have underlined those words in Palmeraton's speech, which bear more directly upon the critical state of Kdrupe; they have an additional weight at the present moment. As regards the internal affairs of (Icrmany proper, all is quiet. The general elections for tlie German parliament commence on the 1st of May. An attempt has been made, in conjunction with the German Legion from Pari*, headed by Herwegh. the poet, to get up a republic in Baden, but the ^attempt failed; the sth division of the federal army, under the orders of the Prince of Wurteniberg. has entered the disturlied district*, and M. M. Heoker and Struve. the leaders? the former, a member of the Baden C hamber?have iM'en ordered to l>c nnested An in*urrcction ha* taken place in Wallachia and Moldavia; the Hospodar* have been driven away, and Ku**ia ha* taken advantage of the occasion to take possesion of Jassy. thus advancing toward* Constantinople. In Spain, all is quiet; the Duke and Duchess j of Montpcnxier are there, but have met with a most eold reception. The King wa* thrown from bis horse the other day. but escaped with a few bruise* Russia is making great military preparations, but is quiet, biding her time. Kngland. as I said above, is quiet; the total failure of the chartist demon*tration on the 10th. was a moral extinguisher. Ireland is in a most unsettled state; the country people are arming, and seditious language Is boldly launched against the government Dublin is occupied by a very considerable body of troop*, and the government i* determined to put down any attempt at rebellion The leader* of the United Irishmen party are indicted for sedition* language. A bill for the better security of the crown and governmont. lias passed both Houses At the sitting of Wednesday night. IHtb Lord J. said?I will now movethe adjournment of this house till Saturday next, with the view of moving, on that day. a further adjournment till Monday. the 1st May.

He will likewise state to the house, as part of the general view which Her Majesty's government take of this subject, the course that is proposed to lie taken by introducing hills as to the merchant seamen's fund, so as to give the house a complete view of the Intentions and views of Her Majesty's government on this most Important subject. With regard to motions. I should state that my right honorable friend, the Secretary for Ireland, will on Monday, tho 1st of May. or. if not then, on the next day. propose to introduce bills with respect to the elective franchise and with respect to polling plane" ill Ireland.

What a chance for a young man beginning life doc* not France just now present! and Lord Brougham is eager to commence it again.

In uo country of Kurope could he Indulge this fancy ho well as in the land of his adoption There is comparatively uothiug to do in quiet Kngland. The House of Peers is tame. Hat. and unsatisfactory. Lord Campbell has grown sweet-tempered of late, aud Karl (irey's angularities are smoothed down. There is no post against which Lord Brougham can rub himself to allay cuticular irritation. France presents other and more favorable conditions of actiou. Unhappily, the great revolution of 1789 fell a little too early, but the year 1848 has made up for the untimely accident of the past. A national convention is still open to the Ciloyen Brougham. He tuay yet rival Vcrgniaudlu eloquence. and employ the remainder of his life in reconstituting civilization in France. For this turbid preeminence we find him almost ready to sacrifice ermine, coronet, pension, aud all.

When sacrificed at last before the rising demagogues of the New Montaine. and led off to the Place de la Uepublique in a cart, he would devote the brief minutes of his passage to chanting with sincere enthusiasm and strong Northumbrian burr? "Mourir pour la patrie. "1/ out lo sort lo plus boau, Ie plus digne d onvlo." Tho extract beaded The Clubs of Paris" will give your readers a pretty fair insight into the state of things at Paris. Blamiui is an out-and-out republican, and during the late government, was scarcely ever out of prison for attempts to overthrow the dynasty. He was loader of tho famous Socielts Sccrfltes drt Fa millet iiI iles Saisons. During the late revolution, some curious documents (amongst other things, the private correspondence of Louis Philippe with Guizot on the Spanish marriage) came to light. One of those documents. accusing Blamiui of being a spy of the police, has been published. Illanqui. in a most remarkable letter (Chronicle. of 18th), denied it; but the alTair will not end here, and Blamjui has determined on vengeance. Orders wore issued for his arrest, but he is too much feared, and has 4,000 or 6.000 men ready to do anything. It is not tho last time you will hear of Augusto Blanqiti. Twenty thousand troops of the line are expected to-morrow at Paris! 1 re-open my letter. Htiding that though it is Good Friday, and shops shut, tho post-ofHco remains open as usual. Important news has been received from Paris and Vienna A courier, who loft Vienna, stated that, two hours after he left, the liorl/,ou was red. as If tho city was in flames ; but 1 regard this as a rumor only. Yesterday, one of those imposing spectacles took place at Paris, which are almost genial to Frence alone? 300.000 men of all arms fraternizing ; it will be a pendant to tho tremendous mass meeting in the New York park, of which so graphic an aecount is given in the New York Herald?a clear-sighted observer will make two rrmarks 20.000 troops of tho lino have re-entered Far is : and. as you will see from the article in the Monilrur of Thursday, the provisional government has warned tbe clubs against the danger of sedition. Tliu curious extract from the Jittemblie NalionAU speaks volumes of the present state of Paris.

The depositors are still umking a run upon the saving! banks, and a run is also made upon the large hanks for gold and silver ; jL'10.000 was drawn from the Dublin Savins Bank the week before last, and the country banks in the same ratio, (treat excitement is observable in all parties on account of the government "KNKKinR hill." as it is called, and as the State trials approach, all look forward to the result with eagerness and anxiety. The news of the proceedings of the Americans, as regards Ireland, has been hailed with loud acclamations, aud it may not be long till the offer uiadc by the Americans be required to bo realized The State trials will not take place till after tho sittings. which commence on the 12th proximo; but on ' Saturday last the traversers. Messrs. O'Brien. Mitchell and Meagher, took their departure from the committee rooms of the Confederation, and proceeded on foot to the Kour Courts, accompanied by a crowd of persons; but it was evident to all that there was not that degree of excitement evinced in 18411. when O'Connell and his brother traversers stood in the name predicament. Judge I'rompton delivered a long address to tho grand jury, and explained to tliem the law of sedition, itc The grand jury found true bills against all the traversers In the evening, the trades and citizens of Dublin entertained VVm.

The grand juries oft ork and Fermanagh have presented addresses to the l.urd I.ieuteuant of their confidence. The ITnilnl Irishman of Saturday contains a letter from the editor to Lord John Russell, in which letter he tells bit i.ordship that iu Ireland there has been opened a boundless market for sedition; that the article wanted is of the coarsest uud strongest kind - all that is required.being good, sound, hearty bona tide (edition, plain military instructions, sharp incentives to rebellion, strong treason and thorough-going felony, without benefit of clergy.Mr. Sken L&ier, in a letter to the Cork Kxaminrr. recommends the dissolution of both the repeal association uud the Irish confederation.and the formation of a new society under one head, for he considers one too fastand the other too slow for success. Sir John Anderson has addressed a letter to Lord John Russell. He states that, if his lordship opposes the just demands of the Irish nation, the most disastrous consequences will result. The loss of life will bo terrific, and the destruction of property, by fire, in the manufacturing districts, and of the shiupiug iu the Thumcs aud at Liverpool, will produce the most incalculable injury; aud he continues: "and 1 also know that numbers of tho Irish, in Amorica. will return home, armed, to assist their relations, should a civil war unfortunately^nsue; and I tell your lordship that tho Irish people will not continue any longer in the unjust position iu which they have beeu kept." Repeal rows are now becoming frequent, all over the country, between the military; one occurred a few days ago, in Dublin, between the soldiers of a Highland regiment and an Irish regiment; and several accounts have been received from tho country which confirm the statement that a great number of the military are disaffected, both Irish and others. Some of the Scots Greys have boon alrcudy arrested for shouting for repeal. Several of the Rifle Club 111 Cork, were arrested on Saturday lust; but owing to the want of sufficient evidence they wore discharged. The club Is mostly composed of tradesmen, who subscribe 2*. weekly to purchase guns. The people of Hathkeale are in high spirits. They have ride practice every evening. Several of tho respectablo inhabitant* of the town applied for license to keep fire-arms. but they were refused. Last week a man named Charles Maxwell wart lined jC5, or two months imprigonment, for striking another with a pike, in Cuckoo Lane. It has gone the rounds of the papers that the Karl of Shrewsbury is a convert to the necessity of immediate repeal. He suspccts that his Irish estates are in danger. All the liberal papers have dcclarcil for the council of U00. Tho nomination to the council, in some places, lias been proceeded with. In Kilkenny, one district has chosen its representative, in tho person of a W lleiy, a Protestant. Some people, not members of the association, have signified their wish to be put in nomination. Last night there was a large meeting in Portadown. to consider the question of tenemont right. There were at least 4000 people present. The meeting was addressed by all the principal parties iiitcrcrttod in tho county, and much dissatisfaction was evinced. It is stated that the Protestant Repeal Association in Dublin already numbers 700 members. Tho government intends during the summer to establish two camps?one in the Phoenix Park and the other in 111 mnty of Kildnro. Several largo concerns are about being rented in Limerick to form barracks. and a company of artillery Is expected every day from Woolwich. The government is determined that we shall not want protection, as far as the military are concerned. Theacoonnts from the country state that the people are all very quiet, that the spirit for murder has visibly decreased, while the poor people are as badly off as ever for want of food. The number of recipients of relief in the Trinity Union is 80,000. at an average cost of Jb'fiOO per week. That cannot long stand. The governors of the Limerick Union are going to establish a temporary hospital at Caatle Connell, for fever patients, a large number of the poor iu that locality being afflicted with that frightful disease. The sums, stated, were lout at the pawn offices, at the following places, during tile last year, vi* :?Limerick. 4M.TW: Wnlorford. ?HJH; Cork. i.'l;')0.105; Belfast. ?108.091; Dublin. ?476.000.

O'Brien, and Mitchell, arc preparing for their trials, which are expected to take plant about the 12th of May. and, in the meantime, are exhausting their vocabulary of sedition. Tho orators of the Repeal Association are quarrelling among themselves, whilst their funds are almost exhausted; here anil there a ranting, revolutionary priest denounces the union, and advises war and bloodshed; but he usually gets a rap on the knuckles from his superior. Poor Tom Steele.O'Connell'i head-pacificator, has happily been rescued from an attempt to perpetrateself-destructi?n; but his mind, as well as his property, is irrevocably gone. Drilling is practised in many parts of the provinces, but the government in Dublin has evinced a determination to suppress these foolish and illegal demonstrations; pikes and fire-arms also continue to sell well; whether they will ever be brought into use. or if used will not In* inore injurious to the purchasers than to those against whom they may be directed, are questions which we shall not take upon ourselves to decide. [Krom the Kuropean Times. April 22. The ,dcpiorahle state of Ireland, apparently on the verge of a civil war. continues to occupy the deepest attention of ail classes. In the wild and tumultuous passions now evoked, it is scarcely to be hoped that the calm exhortations of wisdom and experience cau bo listened to. The majority of the people of Ireland, now to a great extent armed, seem reaolved upon some desperate act. which will secure for them the accomplishment of their dArling hopes, or plunge them still deeper into the abyss of misery. Whatever may be the issue of the impending struggle, no one cau doubt that a vast amount of misery will be suffered by the middle and humbler classes, and however slow the process of quiet anil peaceful legislation might nave Iteen. in ameliorating their condition, a direct appeal to arms appears to us far more certain of bringing down accumulated troubles upon our highmlnded but luis-guided fellow-subjects The divergence between the repealers, headed by Mr O'Conncll. j and the party led on by Mr. Mitchell, becomes greater every day.

A couple of reginiuut* were brought into Pari*. Cannon, for the ttrst time since the revolution. was placed before the Hotel de Ville. Of the National Guard* of Pari*, no fewer than 12l),000 assembled on the quay* and boulevard*, joined by 40 000 of tho hanlieu or suburb*; to the*e were added 20.000 of the gardrt mokilrt, and thia body, between which and the National Guards some jealousy had previously existed, fraternised as they passed each other, and their common differences were buried in oblivion. The peace of Paris was thus secured The usual exhibitions and speeches took place before the Hotel de Ville. nod the cause of the communists sank apparently into insignificance A counter demonstration is of course threatened. In the course of the tuioult at the Hotel de Ville. Cabet stigmatised Lamartinu as a traitor to the republic. Lamartine withdrew, and. having consulted with Ills colleagues, orders to arrest Cabet were' Issued in the course of the evening. There can bo no doubt that the whole affair tended to strengthen materially the miuliimtn mri ? In th? ?~i. visional government. Another unlimited circular published in Paris. on Saturday last, in the name of M. I.edru Rotllu. contributed very greatly to indispose the Parisians to countenance the communists. It* violent tendency rendered the name of M. I.edru Roll in mo unpopular that he was compelled to disavow its authenticity. and that it had hecu Issued from his department without his knowledge and sanction. It is evident that the sensible and moderate men of tho provisional government have boen secretly, if not openly at variance with the extreme party On the Saturday evening previous to the Sunday's demonstration, high words took place between M. Marrast and L*dru Ilollin. in the council M. I.edru Rollin applied the opprobrious term larhe, or coward, to M. Marrast, whom lie accused of betrayiug his principles; M Marrast followed this up by a blow ; he struck M Lcdru Rollin. and the other members interfered and prevented further violence, lndeed.it is openly asserted that the plot of Blanqul and ('abet, on the Sunday, which so signally failed, was favored, if nofr concertod, by the extreme party in the provisianal government. which, if it be true, must lead to Its speedy re-construction. Thus stood matters on Monday. Ou that ovening Blan<|ui harangued his club, inciting them in the most violent language, to arm and overthrow the government. He invited the people to pay no more taxes, to raise the wages of the workmen to live francs per day, and compel the rich to minister to the wants of tho sick and axed proletarians?tho new classical name for tho shirtless.'' Commissaries were appointed to come to an understanding with a vast number of other clubs who advocate similar principles. It is now evident that the contest between tile moderate clubs and their more violent antagonist* ham lairiy commenced. l ne rappel whh again beaten on the morning of Tuesday, the 18th. Vast numbers of national guard* were kept under arm* during several hours. perhaps with a view to weary them out. and the whole capital wan kept in a continual state of terror and confusion. It wax stated that both Rianqui and ( abet were arrested hy order of the government. The report is put forth actively that all tho members of the Provisional Government are now again on friendly terms, and that all t differences have ceased. But while secret arrests of the communists are taking place iu different parts of Paris, it is idle to count upon the permanence of tranquillity for a single day. The great demonstration for the fraternisation of the National Guards, the troop* of the line, aud the people, which was appointed for Thursday, was expected by many to be marked by some great catastrophe. Humors of an intention to assassinate one or more of the provisional government, by way of signal for a general revolt, are aHoat. The review and fraternization of the troops, the National Guards, and the Gardes Mobiles, cannot fail to be one of the moat wonderful exhibitions that has ever taken place in the world. The lines are to be formed nn the boulevards and in the I'hamps Klysees. stretching from the Baatile to the Barriere de I'Ktoile, and, If necessary, along the avenue de NeulUy. A glance at the map of Paris will give an idea of this moat astonishing spectacle, which, we trust, will terminate peacefully. It is evident that the government is paving the way for the introduction of more regular troops, to remain permanently in the capital. General Changernler, it is expected, will assume the command of the garrison uf Paris, if this movement run he accomplished. Indeed. troops are beginning to arrive in Paris, and it will depend, of course, a good deal upon their fidelity and attachment to the new republic whether tranquil nty can be mainlalneu. rne ultra party, or commuu h ists, openly display the of their party, the red ro- fl sette of the Montagnards. in contradistinction to tho I tri-color. the sign of the Girondists. or moderate party; H and. to rend the French journals of 1848, wo sometime* fl fancy ourselves.transported bark sixty years, and ima- H Kill" we are perusing tile identical occurrences of l'Hfl H The parallel hitherto In almost complete.

Such is the present state of Paris; and it will lie easy to conceive how slight an event may again subvert the present system, and throy society into as great a state of confusion as on the 24th of February.
