THE GREATBATTLE^ ITALY. STATE OF THE MARKETS. die. die. &e. The steamship Cambria, Captain Harrison, was telegraphed at ten o'clock yesterday morning, in fhe lower bay. The news steamer, the Newsboy, immediately hoarded her, obtained our despatches, and came to this city with her usual speed. Our thanks are due to Capt. Harrison and the gentlemanly purser of the steamer, for their attention to our news collector. Ttfe Cambria sailed from Liverpool on Saturday, the 5th inst., and her advices from all parts of Europe, are, therefore, one week later than those brought by the Acadia at Boston. Alleyesare anxiously turned to Ireland. Throngs of people came into our office to ascertain the fate f the patriots of that country, from the moment the steamer was announced by the telegraph. We never witnessed so much real, substantial interest manifested for news. All other nations were los* sight of in the desire to hear from the Irish people. France, Italy, Austria, Russia, &c ,&c., were (or gotten. " What's the news from Ireland 1" asked one, with an anxious countenance. ",11x8 there been an outbreak yet?" asked another, with a hopeful face. " I hope to God the news from Ireland is favorable to our cause," said another. "Faith, and I believe old Ireland is all right," said another. And thns the remarks continued * and the excitement increased, till the issue of the TT JutATKA IlfiKAIJ). Our details of the news, therefore?aud for other good and patriotic reasons?begin with Ireland. The intelligence from that country is of the greatcut interest.

Wheo the police arrived within a short dis- j tanee of Balhngary, they were encountered by a /\?r> ?U* U A _ 1 I.. r t irir. o. w Diicui at uic ucau ui tt uuuy ui irom four hundred to one thousand men. The p&lice then took possession of a house close at hand, when the rebel leader, addressing one of the police, summoned the party to surrender. The policeman, in place of shooting Mr. O'Brien, went to the part of the building where Inspector Trant was at the time, to report the matter to his superior. Mr. Trant hastened to the spot, but Mr. O'Brien had taken his departure. Mr. Trant forthwith ordered his men to tire. The engagement then commenced, and speedily terminated with the defeat of the rebels, of whom about eight or ten were killed, and several wounded. During the conflict, two shots were fired at O'Brien, but neither took effect. One shot killed a rebel at O'Brien's side. Another party of police, under the command of Mr. Cox, and accompanied by Mr. French, the stipendiary magistrate, came up at the instant, and fired on the rebels wish considerable effect. The insurgents immediately fled. Eighteen were killed, and a considerable number wounded. The police ultimately retired upon Callan, without suffering any loss whatever. A sergeant of police was caught in the rebel camp, J ?'?? nnlv liherated on the interference of Mr. O'Brien. His horse was taken from him, on which Mr. O'Brien mounted, and rode about amongst his troops in a general's uniform. The hone was then returned to the man, who has since arrived at his post in safety. He describes the ppearanpe of Mr. O'Brien to bs very miserable; but h? is deteroinied never to surrender, as he ! feels his fate would then be certain. fhnith O'Brien was perpetually changing his dress, but always appears in a green costume of abme kind or other. He is always armed, sometimes to the teeth?t. e. with two pistols at each Mde in a green belt or sash. ft is positively stated that Mr. S. O'Brien is accompanied by some French gentlemen of great militai? knowledge ; also, that he was undoubted* ly in Limerick on Sunday last, to take leave of Mnt. S. O'Brien. ** Proclamations have been issued against the following places County of Kerry, county ofthe town of Galway; baronies of Kunturk, Skibbe seen, Skull, Castletown, Bereti&ven, lianiry, Macroon, in the county ot Cork; county of Wexford, county of Carlow, Queen's county, county of Kildare, county of Wicklow, baronies of Ballybay, Ball)<, Cootestown, Kilcouraey, Geaahill, Upper lMiillipstown, Lower Phillipstown. in the King's County, county of Westmeath, and founty of Louth; baronies ot Caetleraghan.Conke, Tullygarvey, Lower Loughtee, in the county of Cavnn: barony of Farny, in tlic county of Mona ghan: barony of Upper Fews, Upper Oriel, in the / county of Armagh; barony of Newry, in the county of Down. , ?. The. intelligence received from Cork, on the . 3d inst, is important. Five leaders of the threatened rebellion were yesterday apprehended on warrants, signed by the Lord Lieutenant, charging them with being guilty of treasonable practices.? Their tinmen are, Mr. Michael, J. Barry, junr., harriftei: and editor of the Southern Wejwrtrr; Mr. Denny Dune, barrister; Mr. Mullen, ironmonuer; and Met>rs. Isaac and Ralph Varian. The prisonern were conducted to gaol by an escort of constabulary, and a troop of lancers. The Cork papers say there was an opinion current flint the prisoners arrested for treason would be sent without delay to Fort (Icorge, in Scotland. It mny he observed there was a similar notion with reference to the Dublin prisoners a week or two ago. At Rofcrctt, county Tippersry, four more leading confederates have been arrested under the hnbens cm pus *us|>cn*iou net. The report that Mr. II (?'< .onnan was shot, is o?itradi< ted. On Tin day last, Pat Mor on, Kw|., editor ol E NE MORNING the lhttfttda Aifciih, was rrrstcd by two ot the conetubulnry, who instantly took him to Drogheda jail, where he remains under n warrant for high treason. Thursday, half-past Four, P.M. Persons who arr.ved by the train winch left Limerick at eight o'clock this morning, and reached the trimmus, Kingsbridge, at three, represent the country along the line troin Limerick, Thurles, <Vc., us peltt elly quiet, arid free I'om disturbance of any sort No further arre>tH had taken place, nor was any thing additional known relative to Mr. O'Brien or his movements. Among the passengers by this train were Lord Clare and the Duke of Leiuster. Th?re was a street riot in Thurles yesterday morning. It appears that some of the people attempted to prevent the conveyance of bread trom a bakers's shop to General McDonald's forces, and bioke a few panes of glass in the endeavor ; but they were dis(?er8< d, without loss of life, by a iruup Dl UIHUIHUIH. I On Sunday,the police entered the haberdashery I establishment of Messrs. Pim <5e Co., Dublin, and instantly, to the consternation of the proprietors, commenced a search lor arms. The polic** then inquired for several persons, and ten answered to their names, who were immediately lakenmio custody. It appeared from papers found on them, that they had received regular commissions in the rebel airny, nnd were about to leave that very day to join their leader, Mr. Hmiih O'Brien. Tne arms in their possession were of course seized. The London Sim. of the 4tli instant, says: ? " We have received the following from our correspondent in Dublin, by electric telegraph from Liverpool DitrBLiN, Thursday Evening. All the accounts from the provinces re|>ort the continuance ol tranquillity.There is no intelligence of the movements of the rebel leaders. Vour reporter, writing trom Ballmgarry on Wednesday night, states tliut several arrests had been maae ol persons known to have harbored the rebel leaders, as well as for taking part in ihc insurrectionary movement. Smith O'Brien slept at Ktlcooley on Saturdayl night, in the house of an under forester in the service of Mr. Ponsonby Barber. Messrs. Meagher and Doheny are believed to have taken up their quarters on the north side of ylievenamon. The troops liuve been moved out of Bellingarry, and are encamped in a field adjoining. A reimrt haB been received that it is the intention of tne rebels to attack the military on Tuesduy next; it is not, however, credited. The Electric Telegraph's Company's express piuicB iiiH.1 yruicruay pruuimimuuny were issued by the Lord Lieutenant to the fifteen counties and baronies proclaimed last Monday, calling on all paities, not privileged, to deliver up their arms on or before the 7ih inst , under the penalty of two years' imprisonment with hard labor. From mora recent accounts from Ballingarry. there nre further particulars of the late conflict between the insurgents and police, in the county Tipperary. from which we have made the following summary of the most important events. It appears that the widow Cormiek's house, in which Mr. 7 rant and his party took shelter, stands on an elevated piece of ground ubove the common of Bnulsgb. It is a very substantial building, surrounded by n wall tbur feet high, and remarkably well adapted for the purpose for which it whs used. The police vppear to have retreated on this position, running as they went, while the insurgents, in overwhelming numbers, were demanding their arms. Onceeafoly inside, they proceeded to barricade the windows uud doors, and. for tbis purpose, mantle-pioces were torn down, doors pulled from their hinges, and dressers displaced. Mrs.Cormick knowingthatdi-turbances weru likely to take place, had collected within her house hei* Ave children. In her alarm, she went to Mr. Smith O'Brien, who was in the garden in the rear of the premises, and besought him to remonstrate with tho police; but lie declined doiugso, and asked her to go back and tell them, that all be wanted Item them was their arms. This message she delivered; bnt finding she did not succeed, she returned, and again urged Mr. O'Brien to see Mr. Tratit, to wnich ho consented 'When Mr. O'Brien made his appearance, Mr. Trant was up Btairs barricading the windows, and, as the rebels had occupied some back premises, and were keeping up a cross tire, it was some little lime before he could join hill men below Having. however, succeeded in getting down aafely, he saw Mr. Smith O'Brien creeping out of the lnulosure. Two of his men immediately shouted ' There ho is," and, raising their muskets, fired at him within a distance of twelve yards, but without effect, lie then disappeared, but it does not appear probable that he was wounded at any period daring the conflict. 'J be force opposed to the police upon this occasion is variously estimated; but it wouid appear that, on the arrival of Smith O'Brien the previous evening, accomfanied by seviral gentlemen, the neighborhood turned out armed, and the night was passed by O'Brien and bis party, reviewing and marshalling tin lr forces. Next morning, having notice by spies of the advance of the Lallan police force, which formed part of the four or five different bodies which were to concentrate at Ualllngarry. O'Brien assembled and addressed his men ; and about half-past twelve o'clock, they nawthe party, consisting, some say, of only 37 men. under Inspector Trant. coming np. The police had advanced as far as a cross-road that comes down the hill past Mrs. Cormick's house, when, suddenly seeing the great numbers that were under Smith O'Brien, they turned up the oross-rrad. with a view of gaining a post of defence. Smith O'Br.en's body then hroke, and rushed up the hill to anticipate their design ; but the police got Into the house first, running neck and neck with the people Mrs. Cormiok, seeing that a conflict was inevitable, wished to recover possession of her five young children. The polioe. however, refused to give them up, retaining them as hostages for their own safety, but placlDg tbem under the staircase, as the spot most sheltered flrom tlie fire of the rebels The widow then went for the priest, and while she was absent a party of nineteen of the constabulary from f'ashel, headed by sub-inspector Cox. and accompanied by the Hon. Mr. 1-ranch, R M , arrived on the scene of aetion. just as the s'.ruggia at the house was terminating. White these latter were pushing upwards to the house In which their comrades were barricaded, a body of the insurgents came down upon them, headed by a man armed with a huge pike, which he hrandishe i as be went along He offered to lead the attack on the police, and Mood out iu front for that purpose, wiieu, by order of rub-in spec tor Cos. he wan fired at by a constable. The phot told, and the man felt dead, pierced through the heart with a ball. This had a decisive effect, nrd tbo crowd fled at onoo,receiving a volley as they dispersed, which must have wounded fodio of them. The firing of Mr. Cos's party was heard by another detachmout of ninety police. under the command of sub-inspector Monagbnu moving up to the seedc of action from Kitleuaule The men at once gave three cheers, and, leaving the high road, ran unless tliv fields as fast as they oould to the succour of their comrades. On their arrival, the party of subinspector Trant were relieved, and the police withdrew from the scene of action. On the arrival of the I ltoman < stheliccletgyniau some persons were found dead, and several badly wounded In a field close by. Mr O'Brien was seen pacing up and down in a state of great agitation, while some persons were attending upou a young gentleman who had been badly wounded. He appeared to be in great pain, and from the description given, he Is believed to be Mr. Dillon ? Shortly afterwards Mr. O'Br.en was seen to ride off in the direction of Kilkenny. According to the most authentic accounta, the polioe have done more execution then was at first supposed. Out of eleven persons known to have been killed on the spot, or very seriously wounded, six have sluoe died, and the rest are not expected to survive. Many more are hart, and it is impossible to ascertain exactly the extent of the loee, as the insurgents, who were principally colliers out of work, withdrew their comrades when they fell, and ooncealed the bodies of the dead When the last accounts left a military foroe of 15000strung was concentrated in the vicinity, under the command of General M'Donald, whose arrange, ments for keeping up a communication with the different military stations in the neighborhood were such as effectually to cru-h any outbreak. All the Unas of road leading from the district were protected by strong outposts ; and the general himself had fixed hit headquarters at llstlingarry.

The Repeal cluba in Belfast have all nriuinally been dissolved, but whether their memhors hare actually given up their treasonable plotting* and planning* is a different matter. Th<r? is no cbanoe now of any serious attempt at an outbreak in this neighborhood. A letter from Boulagh, the scene of the late oeutlict between theinsurgentsandpoliee.dated Monday night, gays " The day baa passed without any accurate tidings having been received of the whereabouts of Mr. 8. O'Brien aud the other rebel leaders. 1'he reports with regard to him now appear to have been industriously circulated to blind the pursuit, and I. for my part, cannot help thinking bo lies concealed much nearer the scene of the late outbreak than in at all supposed. He has been positively stated to have tied noitb south, east, and west, from Boulugb common, all at the same time. The rumor which sent l,im one half hour to Dublin by Johmtowu was superseded the uext by another, equally nuthi-utlo, winch said be bad gone to niinruuj. nijo?runui?)u. ui t iur^?r-iiiu, iu vrH&ioru. " There has been intelligence to-day from all directions In this neighborhood likely to be in the least disturbed? from Slit veiiiiiiion. Kothsrd. Kiiienaule. Kittleton, Holycross, Clanaulty, and otln-r point*; and every thing continues perfectly peaceable. How long this will last remains to be seen. General Macdonald's headquarters are still at Ballingary, and he continues actively engaged in organising the measures of repression which be intends adopting for the district. The rebels may therefore soon expect to feel the full severity of the power which they have so wantonly provoked. To-day. the general, with his staiT, inspected Mrs. Corraick's house, and expressed his great satisfaction at the manner in which it bad been defended by Mr. Trant and his party of fifty men Ho also announced his intention of representing to the government the loss which Mrs. Cormiok has sustained by the complete destruction of her property in barricading the house. Coroner's inquests were held to-day upon the bodies of two of the men killed on Saturday. The bodies of the other four believed to be dead, have been concealed. Some of the wounded still lie in a very precarious state; but one man. shot through the lower lobe of the right lung, it is thought will recover " Tne Timet'' correspondent says that since the affray on Saturday last, arms not previously called into requisition have been sent to be repaired, and that the peasantry arc determined, as soon as the troops uro removed, to renew the contest. The clergyman of many parishes havo strongly advised their llock not to join iu any armed attack on. or resistance to. the authorities; and I have learned from a well-informed source that the parish priest of Urlingl'ord, in this county, prevented a number of his people from going to Mr. O'Brien's assistance on Saturday. It Is believed that Mr. O B; ion fed most of those who flocked around him at his own expense, and strictly prohibited any of them from seizing provi sioDs or cattle from the farmcrR. The Marquis of Waterford, on Monday, Invited all his tenantry to meet him, and the result has been a solemn engagement on their part to co-operate cor uimiy lor me maintenance 01 me inwn against all wUo should dare to attempt their violation. The magistrats of the Roscrea diHtrict have resolved that arms should be put into tho hands of every loyal man in the neighborhood, irrespective of his religious tenets?the only test being bis non-connection at any period with illegal societies. In Lisburn, a similar movement has been set on foot, and the example followed in Newry. A defensive association has been formed In the Tillage of Tortlaw. Simscii ion Akmi is Cork.?At an early hour tills morning, several largo bodies of police, under the command of sub-inspectors, traversed tho various districts ot the city in search of arms, but, we believe, met with but little success in their search. To aid those alr< ady in the city, seventy additional constables #ero brought in last night in a special oar of Mr. Uiannoni's, and-several jingles hired for the occasion; and for the purpose of making the array more imposing, 1(1 gunDoais, in two divisions, each dlvisiop towed by a steamer, sailed up tho river this morning, at seven o'clock, and one division having proceeded up the North Chann< 1 as far as Patrick 'a Uvidat*, and I lie other up i ha South channel to Angleeea Bridge. rwtJi returned and anchored off the Custom House. Six out of the sixteen boats carry 121b carronades at their bows, and there am in each from 20 to 25 men, all of whom are armed with cutlasses and pistols. There are from 60 to 60 marines in each of the steamers. On tho whole, the preparations of the authorities liavo a very formidable appearance, in the course of the search, the gunsmith s shops were visited, as well as the stores of tho retailers of gunpowder, and u body of police was left in charge of each of their stocks The rcsldencos of many respectable persons were visited, hut <if course nournis were found, in tho northern part of the city, some old rusty guns and pistols woro freely given up by their possessors, but the number obtained was comparatively small; tbo pawn oflices wero minutely searched, a large crowd were assembled, but no unpleasant circuuiet.mcos occurred, nor wero prisoners Cl.ONMKL, August 2. This morning, tho prisoners in the gaol of Ulonmel rose; the turnkeys, &c., fired upon them, wounded eight, three mortally. Four hundred prisoners are in the gaol. O'Donnoll, of Ballyboe, the leader of tho Carrick rebels, was takon last night; ho is a man of considerable property. Mr. O'Ryan, jun., of ('asbel, is also arrested, takon near Carrick lie is of respectable parents; liis father has ?600 per annum.

O'Hyan was marching towards Ballyboe, CO'Donnoll's) when he was taken. If they had only waited till the harvest was reaped, the whole country would hare joined in the insurrection. The priests undoubtedly told the people not to rise; hut many added " The time is not yet come " The Humored Bscape of Hinlth O'llrlen. L)i; 111.1 n, August 4. Wo are still as much in the dark as to the proceedings or fate of Mr. Smith O'Briun as ever. The town is, as usuul, full of the most absurd rumors. We are, however, inclined to think that Mr. O'Brien has succeeded in quitting the kingdom. Up to the present we have nothing in the shape of accurate intelligence respecting him. A correspondent of a morning contemporary writes as follows " It is confidently affirmed, by parlies who feel the deepest interest in the fortunes of Mr Smith O'Brien, that he has already succeeded in effecting his escape U?- V,.. Ihla rumor.. I ,,r ?h,.lli?r he has withdrawn. I could not ascertain. But his friends in Dublin lire satisfied of his safety, and pronounce bim beyond the reach of danger. This I give you on good authority. *'Wo near from another source that a person answering in description to ilr. S O'Biieo, bereft of ids whiskers, arrived at Bristol from tiie west on Sunday morning, travelled by the Great Western line to London, and arrived just in time to catch the Batavicr stcsiner for Rotterdam, which place he readied ?not exactly without a passport -but with one very much out of date. On h< ing confron ml with the authorities on this account, the fugitive n i tied nt once that he was one of the Irish leaders. Reports of a contradictory are life in Dublin. The Fittinati of this morning, whose account is confirmed by the Kit' tnny Journal, states that Vr O'Brien was somewhere In the county of Kilkcuny, and was seen late on Sunday night in the company of two horsemen. Other accounts state that he had rcndied Soollogh Gsp in the county of Wexford. In fact, we are bewildered with reports. The correspondent of the Southern Krjitrlo', writing from t lonmel, on Monday evening, says : " I drove by Slisvenamou to day and saw no appearance o( nua ting on it. or ab.>ut it? western base " The sub-inspector's horse, on which Mr O'Brien lift Rsllingsriy. on Saturday eeenlng. his been returned, fr< in what quarter is unknown " The t'irrnian't Journal of this morning contains the following letter from its special correspondent: '' Kn.kt.NnY, Wednesday night.

Now, the plain fact is, that ; there wagarareely a countryman at ail on the ground j when Mr. Trant and his party arrived. It was when | the police were discovered on the scene of action that I the pet pie began to descend from tho hills, and the 1 sub-inspector did not attack them, as bits been indua' tilourly circulated, but seught shelter in Mrs. Cor i mick's house, to guard himself from being set upon by ' those who had co jie forward to prevent the arrest of I Mr O'Brien. i But then it is alleged by the samo organs that S O': Brien and his followers had not tho courage to oompcl | the police to run out of the house by throwing it down or setting tire to it. In reply to this statement, I will remind those who have made it. that sub-inspector Tram bad detained four of the children of tho woiuau who owned the house, within its walls, as hostages, and that, when asked to surrender, at the risk of having ; the building burned about him if be refused, he replied j that he bad kept these children for the purpose of guarding agab st such a proceeding as that with which I he was threatened. I TIIK " GKNKKAI. ORUF.ll "?EX A G G URATED STATEMENTS. A general order, in the bulletin form, issued by the 1 Commissioner* ot Police, on Tuesday last, relative to ' the affuir at liullingarry. will, no doubt, take its plane I in the police records, and. like the bulletins of Bonapurte Luug up in the great hall of the Invalids* in Paris, will be hereafter suspended in some palatial national receptacle tor the old age of superannuated Irish constables. The glorious document will animate all constables, now and hereafter, to deeds of such desperate daring as Iihvc handed down to history the boroic feats I of the police of Callati. | Let us, for the sake of all who tuke an Interest in ! such materials for history, produce the bulletin of the I police commissioners :? " GENERAL 0RUFH. " Sunoav, July 30. " The Commissioners of Police are happy to be aide to inlorni the furce, that a small party of constabulary, yesterday evening, unassisted by military, near Klllettaule, in the county Tipperary. attacked ono thousand men, mostly armed with tire-arms and pikes, nn- j ; der the immediate command of Smith O'Brien. Not a man ol the police has been injured, but seven of the rebels weie killed, and a great number wounded. | O'Brien's party ran away in the greatest confusion, ; and were completely dispersed. About an hour after a large military toroe were on the ground, but too late to be of service. I " The Commissienurs congratulate the men of the Duhliu police on the gallant conduct of their comrades ol the constabulary, knowing that the metropolitan f< rce are always ready to do their duty, and set the disaffected at defiance." kroin this it appears that a few constables?the number is not given, hut they amounted to near 00? ' attacki d 1 OCU men, mostly armed with fire arms and pikes," and killed "seven rebels," with a long train of'wounded Not one of the heroic band was injured, whilst every platoon "X ?e.n?, i-.-|,?toUrdone " rebel " Lul-rru Uwu, and put several hors de lomliat. And to add to their renown, it was all done, '* the field was won," without to much as a single red coat being within sight to comfort and assist the little band. [ Granting all the attributes of discipline and oouI rage to the police, still we tbink the commissioners have overrated their claims. We do not know where the commissioners found the " one thousand rebels " J UP UUIICIIII *?nn n*j?. u?/nu iuv uppuMiug lurcu U j " 1 000 men " without even the " luoro or less " of a doubtful affidavit. This statement is a gloss exaggeration, and wide, at t e lowest computation. by !i00 ! of the real truth, in the Kilkenny Moderator of Saturday, whir.h reached town to-day, there is a very full aud circumstantial account of the transaction, the details of which were supplied by a ' friendly " hand. ' We can detect, in its semi-military style, if not the pen, at least tho phraseology of ono who had been ia i the thick of tho " iron showor." Of course the conduot of tho constables is raised to ] the height of tho " Fighting Division," but the ''rebel j army " is set down at 7u0 ' Tho commissioners givo I ' 25 as " powder food " tor each policeman, while tho j | authorised report in the local paper gives only 16 ! : 'I here is a difference between making each constable i dispose of 26 for bis share, and disposing of only 15. The difference, however, is only a slight one?simply | j about forty per cunt. Tho Kilkenny Moderator is highly conservative, and would not, on any account, ! dtu-iuish the "rebel" antagonism by a single man. i j woman, or boy. and on the authority of that journal we think the public will not acquit tho bulletin of the commissioners of a slashing exaggeration. The Mail of last night, which wo have reserved for ; the last, speaks of " i ho Commissioners' song of triumph" in language hardly ht fur ears polite It i damns, oven more than the Moderator, the bulletin of . the commissioners, aud denounces, iu no unmeasured ! terms, the "peculiarly mischievous" tendency of its exaggeiations. The Kitkmny Moderator gave SuliS Inspeotor Trant the credit of writing "seven hun! dred." The Afuil unmercifully lops his laurels, aud 1 thus reduces his claims :?" The facts are. that inj stead of 1,000 rebels, there were but 200, or there| abouth the ominous ' thereabouts '' being a terrible margin for still further reduction. The commissiou! ers give all the credit of the aehievement to Mr.Trant, 1 which excited the just jealousy of Sub-inspector Cox, whose claim for a share of the honor is thus put forward by the Mail:?' The bulletin," says the Mail. " omitted to state that Sub-inspector Traut * * * was relieved by Sub-Inspector Cox with a party of not more in all than twenty-two men. who advauoed upon the rebels with great bravery, aud put them to flight after tiring about 80 rounds." So, then, there were oTer 70 policemen to " attack " and put to flight the 1 rWWl rt'lwlil nf th<4 hnlltttin wkn nn n/tiiniiii* huaild amount to but 200, thus giving a diminution of no leas than 40() percent. on the original estimate oi the Commissioners of I'olice. We really cannot conceive what purpose these exaggerations are intended to accomplish, if it be not to excite still greater alarm aud panic. It is bad enough tbat any such collision should have occurred, and it needed not this " song of triumph " to misrepresent the real facta, and mislead the public as to the condition of the country. In correcting the perversions of the " general order," we have altogether omitted a Very important element in tho result?the interference ot uie Catboiiu clergy, liad they not interposed, instead ot having to leco. d the iosa of ' seven," or of eleven" Hies, no man can tell what blood might bate been spilt, or what might have been the fate of the (a lice. Ought not the ' general order" have noticed this element of safety .' We assert, the ab-enoe of more serious disturbance in the country was owing to the exertions and the lu tlusnee ot tho Catholic clergy. STATU OF MAYO. The most ludicrously absurd soenna are being enacted here, in consequsuoe of the feigned alarm, designedly raided by parties who are likely to protit.and, to a certain extent, have already profited, by the spreading of false alarms. The idea that th? ha'fstarved population ot Mayo were, or are. about to rise in rebellion, is laughed at by every one here conversant wnh tho state of the eonnlry.

I have drawn my own conclusion frori tho 1 little I see and tile groat deal I hoar, that people know J,' noibiiig. tor the sulhclent reason that tliere la uothing : to ho known. There are in all towna two infallible sources of information?the police and tho press. I 1 , made the acquaintance of both, made tho proper in- . quiries. and learnt that there must bo "something," ' ? liut that they knew nothing ; that they wondered at 1 this, sndso did every body else, but they wondered ; only because they had tuken for granted things not | t ' proved. They believed in the reality of a rebellion whicli did not exist, or at least had not commenced. ' f Had there been an outbreak, the official despatches of .... generals, and the reports of penry-a-lincra would stand expanded in tho columns of newspapers, fiieudly uud otherwise ; hail there been a gathering, there would have been mischief of some kind ; and as mil elovf on a large seala is u-way* ho interceting, its perpetration is rapidly followed uy the most extended .j, publicity. Its non-appearance is a negative evidence ofgieut potency. 'The government is not likely to cl concial any fuels, at least of a favorable nature, for the commissioners of police here issued, it la l.amartine, J a grandiloquent congratulation to their own ferce on '<i the pi rformance of forty ooustables belonging to an- tn other force ftt lialiingarry; but unfortunately for the accuracy of their ltiformaliou, a subsequent story | "r proved the first story to be altogether wrong. Cox was Jin the heio. not 1'rant ; and the gathering in a mountain village, was obviously a curious uot a rebellious crowd, coll) cted by the approach of the police. I am disposed | to think that Smith O'Brien was not there at ail; cur- -\ tainly, he could not have been on the spot, if the state- i yei mi nt of the single policeman who ' surroundedhim -p, in his dejection in tho ' bourougheen," be true. Con- I stable Carroll, however, is his own historian, and fear | and glory are wonderlul in inspiring exaggeration. ; tj, One thing Is quito clear, that, at present, there will be no outbreak, lor reasons sufficiently obvious Paddy, , though long exposed to hunger, has not yet learnt to live without eating. He appreciates, with all the ! power of political economists, tho value of the potato garden; he knows that tbore will be no bread unless tho harvest be gathered in ; and although the masses were blind to tho fact, the iariners are well aware that, if the pike be taken in hand, < the reaping-hook will be neglected. To a man, there- pa fore, these are opposed to a rising until after Septum- J,u ber Liberty, equality, and fraternity are good things, g0 but not before the corn is stacked. They feel, with ?,< tho Duke of Wellington, that thore Is no courage if V(f| the btomach be empty ; and they ure as foroibly im- ~wr pressed as the government commissariat, that no vio- n,( lence or vigilance couid now feed a rebel cauip of 10,000 I > men tor one week, supposing them in a situation inac- , e(j cosible to inspector Cox orUeneral Nl'Donald. Hardly to ail inruigent could provide himself with a week's pro- ge] visioi , and the Leaguu have no money to obviate his poverty. For this reason there will be no rebellion this month, and lor the same reason Smith O'Brien has either got away, or will get away?if he uan. Those wbo give the country people credit for great tact, allege til that they report him present, knowing hen to be absent, in order to facilitate his escape, and his personal . fiiends, with a similar object, are said to report his do- '? parture for America, from either Oalway or Limerick. The utter Ignorance of Mr. Meagher's whereabouts seems to afford prcof that be has gone long since either to Ktancc or to the United States. hti Politics aio very much like meteorology. There Is no exactness in either; the barometer fails to inspire accuracy lu vaticination, and the effects of social in moYt menu are known ouly in tho result. We cannot appreciate all the jlrcuuistances, and, therefore, always speculate in doubt.

Superabundant expenditure only tends ta j rich thn districts the military are sent to control, ad soldiers will soon tire of being called out to imbat with shadows. There are feelings abroad a which government can operate niTeotually The iddle o'asses and tradesmen are weary of two lings -bad trade and the cost of patriotism; they ' impi.tlent of subscriptions which are in reality impulsory. and they are apprehensive of a oontinaice of the dullness which agitation has, It is be;ved, superinduced. Doubts of the utility of repeal 1 revolution begin to insinuate themselves. The >eration of the poor-laws has made them partially miliar with the onerous nature of taxation in Kngtid. and they begin to doubt the utility of a charge rich would compel them to support all their national ints and Institutions. They are not quite clear that peal would bring more trade?at least out of Dublin; id they surmise that they never can compete in manaetures with Lancashire, Yorkshire, and Warwickire. They, In fact, lack confldonce, but dare not yso; and the farmers entertain preoisely similar icions under exactly similar circumstances. Upon iese notions government will operate at once. I wus surprised to find here a total absence of ixiety. No one seemed to imagine an outbreak in lib in possible, nnd as long as rebellion was distant was merely a thing of news. On reflection, iwever, all this nppesred natural enough. Dublin hlbits nil the outward marks of comparative prosrity. It is crowded, gay. and brilliant; the shop* s splendid, the vehicles numerous, the people well essed and well looking, nnd out of l/ancashlie there n no such women in the world.
