THE RIOTS IN ~B ELF A S T. The deputation of Belfast gentlemen who waited on the Irish Government a few days ago respecting the late riots, presented the following recommendations at the interview with the Under-Secretary That the garrison should consist at least of one regiment of infantry and a squadron of cavalry, the local police force being composed of too few men, and arranged on far too limited a scale for the requirements of the town. We recom- mend-" That the municipal police force be reconstituted on the plan or model of the London or Dublin police force, or on any plan, if possible, more effective; that the said muni- cipal police force consist of four hundred men, and that the management and regulation of the said force be placed under a commissioner appointed by Government. That there be four police-stations placed in the following different parts of Belfast:âNo. 1, in Police-square; No. 2, in the old barracks in Barrack-street, or Divis- street; No. 3, top of North-street, corner of Old Lodge-road; No. 4, about the middle of York- street. That all the special constables sworn in for the suppression of the late riots be now noticed to return their batons, according to the act of Parliament in that behalf made and provided. We further recommend that such individuals in Belfast as are willing to serve on any future occasion when called upon should give or send in their names to Mr. Kennedy, petty sessions' clerk, Howard- street, in order that they may be registered as willing to serve in the office of special constables when called upon. We further recommend that the attention of Government be respectfully called to the state of the law in regard to party processions in Ireland, with the view of suppressing and putting a stop to processions of whatever kind partak- ing, or which can be construed or considered to partake, of a party character, and that the same be generally applied and put in force in all parts of Ireland. It is said that Government is about to order a com- mission of inquiry into the subject.
