IRELAND. THE GOVERNMENT tND THE ORANGEMEN. DUBLIN, SEPT. 27. —It was fortunate for the Orange candi- dates for office-and their name is Ifgion-that Lord Down- shire, Lord Roden, and other deputy-lieutenants and magis- trates, exhibited so bold a front against the government, and, after adopting the acts of Mr. Watson, who had been dis- missed, hurled defiance at Sir Robert Peel. This system of intimidation, apparently, has completely succeeded; the go- vernment have stopped the supersedeases, and the discon. tent-d Orangemen are to be mollified by a harvest of official patronage. Two' or three days since, I mentioned that Mr. John O'Dwver, a thorough partisan, and one of the counsel 4lrthe Orange Registration Society of Dublin, had obtained the lucrative place of taxing master in Chancery, to the exclu- sion of all the solicitors who had been candidates for an office which requires the experience and knowledge of a solicitor. The Evening Mail announces that another Orange barrister, Mr. James M. Hyndman, also counsel to the same Orange Registration Society, has been appointed to the honourable office or stipendiary magistrate at the Mauritius." A public dinner, to celebrate this Orange triumph over the "strong" government of Sir Robert Peel, is to be given to Mr. Hyndman, at widen Mr. G. A. Hamilton, member for Dublin University, and Messrs. Gregory and Grogan, the city mem- bers, are to attend. Meantime, the Orange organisation, thus encouraged and rewarded by the government, is rapidly progressing. The Fermanagh Reporter says—" The Orange system is spreading like wildfire throughout the kingdom, and will soon be little short of an enrolment en masse." If Sir Robert Peel had dismissed the Lisburn magistrates, the case would have been very different. THE REPEAL AGITATION. The repeal demonstration in Tipperary, was, even according to the Tory accounts, equal in numbers, and in every othtr respect, to the monster meetings which occurred before the state trials. Like those assemblages, it was characterised by perfect tranquillity. The sum of £ 500 was contributed to the repeal rent at this very remarkable meeting. The Freeman's Journal mentions a fact well deserving of attention at this moment. I allude to the adhesion of Thomas Lloyd, Esq., of Beechmount, county of Limerick, totheriaks of repeal. The Dublin Evening Po t has the following statement on this subject.—"Mr. Lloyd is a Protestant and Conservative a considerable land proprietor, and a resident, and he is a de- puty lieutenant of Limerick, and holds the commission of the peace for that and some adjoining counties. His father had been one of the parliamentary representatives of the county of Limerick for a considerable period, and up to his death. The people of Rathkeale, near which Mr. Llovd resides having presented to him an address, expressing their delight and gratitude for his noble and disinterested accession to the national cause,' that gentleman forwarded the following reply declarinsr himself unequivocally as a repealer:- Fellotf-Countrymen,—l"feel gratified in having to ac- knowledge the honour you have conferred on me, and hope I shall endeavour to prove faithful to my God and country. I trust, ere long, we shall have a parliament in Dublin, in which all will combine for tie common benefit of Ireland, and where there will be neither Roman Catholic nor Puseyite ascendancy, atul where infidelity must bow before truth. 1 Yours faithfully, THOMAS LLOYD. Beechmount, 24th September, 1845.' KFPEAL OF THE EMANCIPATION ACT. At a meeting of the Orange Operative Association, on Thursday, the Rev. Thresham Gregg put this question-^ "Are you prepaieci io stand up for the total repeal of the Emancipa- tion act, and for the maintenance of Protestant ascendancy in Church and State F" The whole assembly, says the Sta^esipan, rose, and, with a tremendous shout of "Ay," responded in the affirmative. Mr. O'Connell is expected in Dublin this afternoon on his return from Thurles. He is to attend the Repeal Association on Monday.—Correspondent of Chronicle.
