IRELAND. The accession of Dr. Cantwell, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Meath, to the proposed League of Old and Young Ireland- ers, is looked upon as decisive, as regards the completion of the arrangements for its establishment, especially as Dr. Cantwell, who had been the foremost of the dissentients last week, now expresses his satisfaction with the amalgamation, and almost promises the adhesion of Archbishop M'Hale and Dr. O'Higgins, Bishop of Ardagh, who, he says, are at pre- sent absent in Rome defending the Irish Church against the most treacherous and dangerous assaults of her enemies." The Freeman's Journal announces the adhesion of a fourth prelate, the coadjutor Bishop of Derry, Dr. Maginn. The Irish confederation, meantime, have postponed their meeting until Wednesday, in order that the country may have time to express its opinion on the contemplated union of Repeal- ers. So far (says the Times) the whole strength of the Confederates is concentrated in Dublin, <With branches in Limerick, Kilkenny, and Cork. In the rural districs they are powerless. Let but the clergy abstain merely from taking a part one way or the other, and sedition clubs will spring up all over the country, like mushrooms after a night's rain. This is the only real danger that can result from the pro- jected alliance, and to effect this object was it that the Con- federates stooped to negotiate with the bankrupt concern at Burgh Quay. The former body could gain no other advan- tage from thus encumbering itself with the worn-out machi- nery of a former rival, without friends, money, or credit to bring to the account of the new partnership. Even at this incipient stage of the negotiation, the Confederates have com- menced opera ions, and four of their leading members,— namely, Messrs. Meagher, O'Gorman, jun., Doheny, and Cantwell (not as yet the Right Rev,' John of that ilk)- have been despatched on a mission to the provinces, with a view to accelerate the formation of clubs. Tipperary has been selected as the first field of their labours, and on Sunday last the deputies arrived at Thurles, and were rapturously welcomed at a crowded meeting, presided over by Mr. P. Fogarty, of Cabra Castle, a gentleman, I believe, hitherto a supporter of the Old Ireland policy. Vehement speeches were delivered, a club was at once formed, and several mem- bers enrolled on the spot. From the tone of private letters, as well as from other sources of information, the task oi con- verting Tipperary into one monster club for the propagation of sedition will be easy of accomplishment."
