TH NO. 5258. AFFAIRS IN EUROPE. A&a Z V A L OF THE STEAMSHIP EUROPA. Astonishing Passage over the Atlantic. ONE WEEK'S LATER NEWS. HIGHLY IMPORTANT. VSRDICT OF OVZLT7 AGAINST O'BRIEN ANI) McMANUS, And Sentence of X>eath Passed on Smith O'Brien. REVOLUTION IN AUSTRIA. MARKETS. &e. &c. Sc. , The marine telegraph announced, at one o'clock yesterday afternoon, the steamship Europa, Capt. Lott, oil this port. She sailed l'rom Liverpool on Saturday, the Utii instant, and was, therefore, only eleven days in crossing the Atlantic from Liverpool to New York . The America was once ten drtys and eight hours in crossing to Boston. The distance to New York is equal to twenty-four hours more. The swift express steamer Ajux reached the city about three o'clock with the news. We are indebted to the officers of the steamer for some papers. They are public spirited gentlemen. Our regular files came through the Post Office. The news is of the greatest importance. Our accounts from Ireland are very exciting. O'Brien was convicted, and sentenced to be exe. cuted. McManus was also convicted. See the details of this intelligence in another column. The news from Austria?from France?indeed from nil liarfs of lhf> fnntinpnf initi/>nto a ironom I war in Europe. It is almosjf impossible to see a gleam of hope for any other result. Out of such confusion and anarchy, and so much bloodshed, nothing else can be expected. < 'fficers have been ordered from Paris to immediately join the army of the Al|'S, with the vi^w of striking, if necessary, into Italy. It is to be expected that the in urrection in Vienna will prostrate the claim of Austria in Lombarcy. and set the Italian kingdom again in a blaze. f The long, dreaded cholera, the approach of which has been so long heralded, has now, if we may believe the reports of the London and some of the provincial newspapers, attained a footing in Tingland, many decided cases and some deaths having occurred in the metropolis as well as m the outsorts. A good deal of interest has been excited by a report from Peel's river that the Esquimaux have seen some vessels to the east of the Mackenzia river, which furnish the hope that the long lost party ot Sir John Franklin, in the Arctic seas, i have conquered the elements, and may, at tins ] moment, be in perfect safety. The steamship United States, Captain Hackstafl, ' sailed from Southampton on the 12th inst., at 11 o'clock, for New York. She took out about eighty passengers, and a large cargo of near 300 tons measurement goods, principally from France. The weather during the week has undergone a j very favorable change. With some unsettled states of the a'.mosphere in different places, upon the whoie tolerably fine weather lias prevailed, . and in Scotland it has been so genial that the harvest has been got in with greater succ?ss than has been experienced for many years. The several reports wluch reached us from the manufacturing districts since our last report, are again of a discouraging character. Our continental news is still a. record of sanguinary conflicts between princedoms and their i eople, of wars and rumors of wars, and of the still disorganised state of ulmortt the whole of Europe. The SchletiWlg-Holstein affair seems to be now subordinate to the great contest going on in the centra! mid southern part ot Germany, and the efforts cf Lord Palmerston to compel the belligerents to keep quiet, is at present successful. Every thing is quiet in the Duchies, and their eventual jwcification depends, as we have always said, upon a totally different concatenation of events. In Austria, the ter rible tragedy of war is being ,...i ?;.u ,i??ji? ur? i.u.i na postcript lest we ek, to announce the assassination, or rather butchery, of Count Lamberg, the Commander-in-Chief of Hungary. The war seeins now to have assumed a determinate character. The Lmperor of Austria lias thrown ofl the mask; and. maddened with the murder of his brave lieutenant, Count Lamberg, who had been sent to compose the differences between his own subjects, lie has dissolved the Hungarian 1 ?iet; has appointed anew Biron Jellacliich, ton> mender-tn-Chief ol all the firmed troops in Hungary and the Allied Kingdoms, with despotic powers, and has placed Hungary under martial law. I It is now clear that Jellachich has been, throughout secretly supported by the lvnipcror, and the contest between the Croatian* and the Hungarians will be severe. The former had advanced near 1'esth, and last week it was thought if.at the ("roatians had conquered the Hungarians n a c< niplete victory. Better accounts intorin m 1 hat the ('roatians had hern partially defeated, and compelled momentarily to retire. But it is plain that they would again advance, and a bloody battle, under the walls of Pcsth, w ould probably occur. Whils' we write, intelligence from Vienna has reached us, that the appointment of the Ban to the post of Boyal Commissary of Hungary, and the proposed departure of troops from Vienna to join hit army, has led to the most deplorable :cffses. An insurrection has taken place at Vienna?the Kmperor has (led?the Minister of War, Count Lntour, has shared the fate of Count Lumbers and the two Xichys; and Vienna was in the possession of the insurgents on the 7th. It seems that hostilities in Italy are not renewed, and. indeed, whilst the French government lias so many domestic iiflairs to settle, it would he much to he deplored thiit she should Waste her strength about foreign affairs. An amnesty has been pub lished at Milan by the Austrians. We are still in ih? dark about the progress of the mediation ques- f 'ion; it is. however, beyond nil doubt, that Ausirui will never yield nn inch of Lonibardy. < Jcnoa and Tuscany appear to be again tranquil, and the threats of Charles Albert, of renewing hostilities, are wisely forgotten amidst calmer counsels. The intelligence from Naples and Sftily is more trrfmpiilising, but the belligerents having been .-fayed in their career of destruction hy France and England, heap upon both the most vindictive re- | proaches. The English ships of war seem espe- | cially obnoxious. The Sicilians are organising a 1 defence at every point rhould the Neapolitan forces march on Palermo. The new* from Spain and Portugal is of the | uusfetitfactory ckaretter. E NE MORN IMPORTANT FROM WELA.MD. vkhdict and sentence on tiii: patriots, o bkii:n AMI) M'MAMI.'t). [Correspondence of the Freeman's Journal.] At a quarter pant five o'oiOBkjthejudges entered, and took tbeir seats on the benoh. and Mr. O'Brien wax again placed at the bar. For a few minutes a profound silence prevailed through every part of the buiding. and presently a rustle wan heard at the door of the j ury-room, and the foreman, holding an issue paper in bin band, entered the box. followed by the other jurors. The foreman, when all bad taken their seats, handed tbo verdict to Mr. Pedder. Clerk of the Crown, who oommence-t calling over the names of the juror*. While this formality was proceeding, a solemu hushjof breathlets, intense, almost agonizing expectation, prevadod the entira audience, while all eyes were intently fixed on the dauntless and high- souled man whose life and liberty, whore hopes and prospects, whose noblest aspirations and dearest alfeotions. were dependent on tb? awful flat which was about to be pronounoed. The Clkhk ok tiik Crown, having finished calling the names, asked, in a rather nervous and indistinct tf<ne, maniMtly sensible of the painful effect about to follow. Gentlemen, have you agreed to your verdict' The Foreman.?Yn# Ci.krk ok thk Crown.?How say you Is William Smith O'Brien guilty, or not guilty .' There was no response, and that slokness of the heart which follows nope deferred instantly oaiue over all present. The answer was sot needed to tell the sad acd distressing tale; but. alter a pause of some duration, alow, half Mispressed murmur of-'guilty" from the foremaD. fell upon the ear, tringlngtu every heart a throb, and a tear to every eye There waj one?and but one?iu that sorrow-stricken assembly who blanched not. His form and bearing bore the dignified impress of his manly nature; he stood Tfct. uuuioved, undiuntod; his eye beaming with its wonted tire, and his arms folded aorois his baeast in the full repose of an upright conscience ? Healthily inclined bis heud to tho jury, and attain resumed his erect and firm benring. A convulsive sob was beard for a moment throughout the court, and again all was still. The Foreman of the jury essayed to say something, but bis Belt-possession seemed to fiil him, and h^ said, in a barsh under tone, to the Clerk of the Crawa ? Mr. Pedder, can't you read the rest Tbo Clerk then read from the paper wha* follow! : ?

MAN'SEltAGtl, Chairman. The Clerk of the Crowu then resumed hi* seat, and for about five minutes an unbrnksn silence prevailed, the eyes of all bcicg fixed on the calm, self-possessed countenance of the prisoner ; at length Chief Justice Blackburne said in a low voioe, " Adjourn the court to ten o'clock on Monday morning. ' Proclamation to this eflVct was made [Mr. O'Brien wan then removed from the dock, and the building was soon empty ] jfcflnthe course of the afternoon Mr. I'alton was served with a orou n Fubp.'-na (on behalf of Ull ptilOHW) to attend and give evidence on the trial of Mr. Meagher. ] SENTENCE ON \V. S. O'BUiEN, ESu. Ciodmil, Oot. 9,1848. It being understood that the sentence of the law was to be passed upon Mr. O'Brien at the sitting of the court this morning, the doors were surrounded from an early hour by crowds of ladies and gentlemsn, of the highest respectability, anxious to obtain admission to witness that solemn and painful scene. As soon as the doors were opened every available place in court was immediately tilled, and it was easily seen from the countenances and manner of all how much sympathy und interest were felt in the fate of him who was about to be called up to bear the dreadful doom which the law prescribed for the offence of trtason. -ciintil the sitting of the court, a low. Lushed conversation was carried on, one question being anxiously afked by all, namely, whether it was possible that the govemrcen^wouldsufferthe scntenca of the law to be carried into effect, if the points reserved in favor of Mr. O'Brien were ruled against him ? The judges took their seats on the b-neh. at a quarter past ten o'clock, when the most solemn silence at once prevailed in court. The crown counsel were not in attendance for some time after their lordship* ascended the bench, and daring the interval the most intense anxiety prevailed. The most painful interest was felt to ascertain if there could be collected from the words of the judge who was about to pass sentence, any assurance that the recommendation of the jury would be attended witli the effect whieh all so arlent'.y desired. So deathlike was the stillnrs in conrt that you could hear a pin fall. At 25 minutes after 10 o'clock, the Attorney General entered the court, and. addressing their lordship1, said: ,:My lords, it now becomes my duty, in the c*?rt cf the rjr.ren Against Willium Smitli O'Brien, to humbly moie ior the judgment ol' the court upon the prisoner." Chikf Jtstii c Blaikih rnk.?li Mr. O'Brien in court? The Governor of the gaol replied in the afilrmative. All eyes were now turned towards the dock, and in p. few moments O'Brien was placed at the bii?. Though atttr conviotion for high treason, and though about to he sentenced to die the "death of a traitor," his appearance or manner was not in the slightest dt'gre.t < KHDred. He still maintained the saw flr/n. inmly hi ftl irff? ritill rllKr*ln tnmu I n -?4?a nf nir> n. tier. His astonishing fortitude of mind, and the testimony of a good conscience which supported biin dar ing tbo former part of this trying ordeal, did not desert bim at this awful moment. He advanced to the b*r with hi* usual firm step, and cool, collects, ani digBiSfs demeanor. Having politely and cheerfully bowed to the friends wbflip. he recognlicd in court, and shaken band? with 8uch of them as wers within reach of him, he cast a proud and dignified glance about the oourt. and with the most perfect composure and fearlessness awaited the sentence of the law. The profound silence that prevailed for several minutes, was broken by the clerk of the crown, saying: "William Smith O'Brien, you having heretofore stood indicted for that you with ctliera"'? Mr. Whitkiidk hern interrupted the officer. and siid he thought that was the fitting time to make an application In arrest of judgment, as he found by the act that the proper lime to apply to the court as to the reservation of matters that occurred was after tli<* conviction. lie, {therefore, asked the court to reserve ' these questions?first, whetbrr the three speeches delivered by'Mr. O'Brien,'in the months of March and .April, ought to be admitted in evidence azaiust him ; ! secondly, whether the circumstances detailed relative to the meeting of th* 21st, should be admitted against him?on two grounds, counsel contended that they ; ought not. because Dobbin, the informer, was not con! firmed, and as Mr. O'Brien was absent from the meeting ; and thirdly, whether the contents of the portmanteau should b? received in evidence against nim. There was a fourth question also, which be would state to the court. He moved an arrest of judgment, or the part of Mr. O'Brien, on the grounds stated. Mr. Whiteside then proceeded to enforce his motion in an argument of ^reat ability and considerable length He was replied to by the Solicitor General The motion was ultimately refuted by the court. THE SENTENCE. The ( lrrk of the Crown, having read over the indictment, addressed Mr. O'Brien, and said?To thin indictment you have pleaded '-not guilty." and put yourself upon your country. That country has pronounced you guilty. What have you now to say why the sentence of the law should not bo pa?sed upon yen ' Mr. O'Baii rc in a calm and firm voice, addressing the judges, said My lord*, it is not my intention to enter into any vindication fny conduct, however much I might have dc'ircd to avrvil my" relf of tl.il opportunity of doing to. I am perfectly satistiod with the eonsotoiunew that I have performed my dntj to my courtrv ?that I have done only that which. in my opinion, it was the dntyofeYevy Irishman to have done; ami I am pr?|??J n?v t" abide tlif c<in!*i|Ucnce? of having j< iT- nrcil my duty toiny nativ* land- I'rootcd with your rentetce. On the utterance of these words. a d?ep murmur followed by a burnt of appleuce, filled the court. but it was at once suppressed. Mr. O'llrlrn then stepped back a pace from the front of the Jock, and,' folding his hviiis across hi* breast, looked steadily at t)ir> judge*, and made a light inoilnati m of hi* head, pre serving.

The bill maintains tho sequestration laid on the property, hut authorises the State to mortgage ami borrow, in order to pay the creditors; the Minister ol" F inance is also authori/.edby it to pay a certain income to the memters of the royal family. It appear* that the king's debts amount to UO millions, whereas the sum* paid into tho estate, to this day, are only 000.000 fr ; in consequence, in order to pay the creditors, it is necessary to have recourse to a loau, until th< property can he alienated.
