TRIUMPH OVER THE IRISH GOVERNMENT. I The Irish Orangemen have triumphed over the Irish Government. The College has proved more than a match for the Castle. Mr. Smithâwho was selected by the government as the successor of Mr. Jackson both in the Solicitor-Generalship and in Parliament for Trinity College, Dublinâhas been compelled to withdraw his pretensions to the latter honour. The government, it seems, could create a Solicitor-General; but, as the learned gentleman selected for the office was displeaswig to the Ultras who were wont to rule the roast in tlie Council Chamber at the Castle, neither c;j'<lery nor threats had pow-r to prevail with the managers e: 'Trinity College, Dublin,' te affirm the choice by sehct ing him for their member. Lord Eliot bore up manfully as long as a hope remained of being able to carry his point, and to carry his man. But when defeat was: .-hewn to be the certain result of further contest, his lordship- acting upon the good old rule, that 'the better part of valour is discretion' withdrew his man, and left the no lot ger-contested field to Mr. Hamilton, the Orange can- didate, who assigned, as his superior claims to the confi- dence of the members of the faithful Collegp,' that he would go to Parliament to resist the Maynooth grant, and to oppose the government scheme of national education." -Wúbe.
