Mi. O'Brien had a pistol in his possession when captured. On the arrival c.f the special train at Dublin, soon after midnight, he was at once conveyed to the royal barracks, where, having seen hitn safely deposited, Lieut.

ANOTHER ACCOUNT. [From the Freeman's Journal 1 Mr. O'Brien whs arrested last ni^ht (Siturday) in the town of Thurles, at about eight o'clock, and was immediately transmitted underastrong escort by special train to Dublin, where he arrived about two o'clock this morning. From the terminus oi ?lie railroad he was taken | to the royal burincks, which are in the immediate vicinity ot the station. We understand that Prince ; Ot urge or Cambridge who was at once apprised [ oi the arrival oi the distinguished prisoner, had him brought into Ins presence. Mr. O'Brien was | shortly ntn r transmitted to Kilmainhnm jail, under an escort ot lancers, headed by Town Major White, wtiere he at present lies. Mr. O'Brien was arrested under the following circumstances : On Saturday evening, at about halt-paft seveu o'clock, Mr. O'Brien entered the railway station at Thurles, and was in the act of purchasing a ticket, it is said, for Limarick, when lie was recognised by one of the guards, who, laying ins hands on lus shoulder, said?" You aie Mr. O'Brien ; you are the Queen's prisoner." Mr. O'Brien made no reply ; and the guard at once ? nt for the police, thirty-seven of whom, under hub-Inspector Bracken, arrived within a few minntes. The engine, which was in readiness to convey the Dublin mail truin, was instantly put in requisition ; two carriages and a van were attached, and Mr. O'Brien was sent express to Dublin, accompanied by hub-Inspector Bracken and the i above number of police. Mr. O'Brien having been taken to the Royal Biti lacks, and thence to Kilniainham, as we already mentioned, w?.-t placed under the charge of the governor of that prison. On reaching KiliiiniiHii.ni, lie expressed an anxiety to retire to rest, as he was a good deal fatigued, "having,' In* said, " walked a considerable distance," al luc ing, we presume, to his wallgto Thurles. Huviug been supplied with some lea, he shortly after r< tired to bed, and we are informed tiiat he soon h II into a proHuind sleep. Permission has been given by the Lord Lieutenant to the Governor to admit Mrs. O'Brien, her children, and Mr. French, uncle to Mrs. O'Brien, to see the prii-oner. reported rising of tiie people. It was reported in Dublin on Monday, that accounts had reached the quarters of the general commanding, that disturbances had broken out in the Limerick direction. The 75th regiment broke up their encampment hear Thurles, by a sudden order, and before 8 o'clock on Monday, were murehing cm rc/ute for Limerick. A letter written at Thurles, on Monday last, dated ihree o'clock, says: "At one o'clock, P. M., tiiis day, the light division (or dying column, as they are termed,) which have been scouring the country for the last ten days, under General Macdomtid, consisting of two light six-pounders royal artillery, one company ol sappers and miners, the Willi rifles, nnd the 85ih light infantry, received iijurjo ?w c 11 11\ *r iirii 19 (iiiu wiugcru uy inw>yny 11/ Dimenck, tn route to the couniy of Clare, wnere a ricin^; is expected. The tents were struck, baggage loaded, and the men oir the ground in one hour alteiwards. The 74th regiment proceeded to Tipperary. The 85lh light infantry escorted Fmnh O'Brien to the railway yesterday evening. The men have been provided with canteens and blankets as on service, and have suffered from the rain and damp of the ground in camp, but are, notwithstanding, very healthy, and in greatspirits. The 75th region nt are under canvass at Ballinpairy, county of Tipperary, vacated by General Macdonald." t1ik REliEL LEADERS. A correspondent of the Times, writing from Dublin on Tuesday, says: " A gentleman from the neighborhood of Golden told me that 011 Friday night last, Meagher, O'Gor1111111, and Dillon, called at a tanner's house in Clonoulty, iniplorinn food and shelter. They were in a most miserafde condition?wet, cold, and starving The farmer, however, would not receive them, and reminded them of the cautionary proclamation that was everywhere through the country Dillon said he could hold out no longer, and would give himself up at once if he ami Id rest nowhere. Altogether they were in a wretchod plight." The following is a copy of some wntten placards which were posted about Cashel, on the 2d instant. We do not, for one moment, suppose it originated with any of the unfortunate madmen whose nanu s uie attached; in Dillon's signature there is internal evidence to the contrary?the signature licng B.

AMERIC AN AND FRENCH SYMPATHIZERS. The govei nment having received information to thn effect that large supplied of arms, ammunition, and food, intended lor the use of the rebel ariny in Ireland, had been shipped from America and Krauce, have tukeu effectual measures to prevent the landing -of tlnxe mischievous consignments. In addition to the HeetatCovo and the eteam frigates, nine aloopa of 11 war have received order* to cruise off the Iriiih coast. It i right to state 1 hat the governmerits of the reap etive countries from which these supplies are coming, are in nowise connected with the proceeding:. These warlike cargoes are the substantial tributes of private sympathy We learn that tho Ilritish Ambassador has apprised the American government that all persons, whether subjecte r.f the States or otherwise, taken in

the attempt to aid the insurgents by such supplies, will be torlhwith hanged by the Ilritish authorities MILITARY CONTROL. The Timet correspondent says the south of Ireland is ut this moment under military control. It is divided into distiivts, each of which is commanded by an ofilcer of distinction, whose name is already known to the world as having "done tho StRte service." General Napier is at Limerick, Sir ('. O'Donnoli at WaterIV rd, Sir C Napier and Major General Turner at Cork. These are the established military districts, by which the south of Ireland is held in contr< 1?l>y which its rebelliousness is overawed, and tho peoplo reminded , that there still exist such things as the crown and government of the land To connect the south with Dublin, General Mucdonnld has under his command about 2 MO men, who form a moving column ready to be concentrated ou any point where their services may be required. They occupy the district between 1 Thurles and Kilkenny, and are thus available for the suppression of disturbances at any one of the three fixed districts. The manner in which they have dis- i charged their harassing duties is already before tho public. In addition to these formidable and well organised arangenient*. Viscount Hardinge is, I am informed. now on a tour of inspection throughout the disturbed districts. His lordship was expected yesterday at Kilkenny, whither General Maedonald and his aid-do camp went to meet him. It is most sincerely to be hoped that the vigorous measures thus adopted may not soon be relinquished. The turbulence which has so long been rampant in Ireland cannot be otherwise : controlled ; and controlled it must be before the pros- j peiity of the country can be effectually restored. !

In our article of yesterny vie remarked that the mission of the Mar pus di Rieoi to 'he reich government com priced two distinct questions.

As to the eventuality ofaa nvasion of Piedmont hy Austria, the English cabinet particiate.-'in the opinion of Fi' nee, that it must l?c opposed by all oioil o meat s, and that the representatives of France aad Ifiugand, M.de Reizct and Sir It.

As to Uio bases of the arnngement to l>? proposed for the conclusion of a peace between instils and Ring t'liarlee Albert. we know from good authority lint the French government wis ed that at leant a proposal honlil he made to Austria to eracuato Italy entirely, ?u fving unranftcd a pecuniary indemnity for the territories g'vea ip, ?l ich had belt nged to the ci-dosrant Lnmbardn-Venetail Kingdom. On thin point, Lord t'almeriton observed hat, alter the confidential overtures he had revolved hri ogh lliron Ifittnellaiier, the envoy mi ho neat to L?non ly the Anntrian government, ho was convinced that im-trta would never, at any ptico, consent to givo no i t Italtsn province*,and the more so as she could rely ut?n Ike tf p rt of the C. rrntti I'arlismert of Frankfurt in retaining nog. teion i f tiio line of the Alige, which, in atratsty, is o>osi ie.-ed ' he the bulwark of South Germany. This is why Lord Falni?.on is of opinion 'ha*, for en'cring upon serious negotiations with e I al ititt of Vienna, it is necessary to reenr to the proposals r peace which Austria was, two months ago, the tirst to mass i the government of Lonihardy, These propositions arc stifSiently known. Austria, preferring the venitian provinces tip ? the li ft hsnk of the Adigc, would acknowledge the political ini pen item e of Lnmbardy, stipulating tor sn engagement from this let, that it would take upon itself a part of the 'totit of the imtrial treasury.
