THE DUBLIN INTERNATIONAL EXHI- BITION. The project for holding an international exhibition in Dublin next year may be now considered in a fair way of being realised. Offers and assurances of sup- port have been received from many of the large towns and manufacturing districts on the Continent, and applications for space have been made by several of the principal manufacturers in our own country. A number of Irish noblemen and gentlemen, anxious to take advantage of the opportunity presented to them by the erection of this building, have patriotically come forward to give their support and countenance to an undertaking which promises to be so beneficial to arts and manufactures in their own country. The executive have entered into an arrangement with the company who have erected the building, under the terms of which the exhibition palace and winter garden will be placed at their disposal for the period of the exhibition. Out of the receipts the company will be repaid any cost they have been put to for additional buildings erected for the purposes of the exhibition, and will also receive a certain fixed sum for the use and wear and tear of their premises. Any surplus remaining after these charges have been defrayed will be applied to the purposes of national industry and art, according to the direction of the exhibition committee. In order to secure an adequate representation of the manufactures and industries of the United Kingdom, the executive have applied to the Society of Arts for their assistance. With the sanction of the society a committee of advice has been formed in London to promote, as far as possible, the success of the exhibition. The following gentle- men have kindly consented to act on this committee: -Messrs. J. Anderson, R. K. Bowley, E. A. Bowring, C.B., Antonio Brady, Sir David Brewster, F.R.S., H. Cole, C.B., Sir C. W. Dilke, Bart,, Messrs. Thos. Fair- bairn, J. H. Foley, R.A., Geo. Godwin, F.R.S., G. Grove, W. Hawes, R. Hudson, F.R.S., Owen Jones, C. Manby, F.R.S., P. C.. Owen, Hon. B. F. Primrose, S. Redgrave, Sir C. P. Bonev, Sir F. R Sandford, Messrs. R. A. Thompson, E. Watertcm, J. Way, G. F. Wilson,, F.R.S., T. Winkworth, M, Digby Wyatt. P. Le Neve Foster, M.A., hon. sec. Although not on sp large a scale as the Great Exhibitions of 1851 and 1862, the Dublin International Exhibition of 1865 may be easily made both attractive and successful. Every attempt which is made to turn the attention of the Irish people to arts and manufactures is deserving of sympathy and support, and it is to be hoped that the artists and manufacturers of the United Kingdom will on this occasion give their best cooperation,.
