WEEKLY SUMMARY. THE press of assize intelligence this week has com- pelled us to act Lord John Russell in regard, to Parlia- mentary business. We have been obliged to massacre the innocents;" but our readers may rest assured that we have committed no serious crime. No fatal results will follow either to them or the subjects of the British realm. Ireland continues to be the theatre of important proceed- ings. All the leaders of the war party, with the exception of Mr. Smith O'Brien, are now under prosecution, and many of them actually imprisoned. The news in Wednesday's papers are really serious. The club organisation is daily becoming more serious, and unless Government will put down the clubs, the clubs undoubtedly will put down Go- vernment. The Nation and Felon uewspapers are pro- claimed as seditious, and as such their sale is prohibited, notwithstanding they are extensively circulated. From ae- counts received from Dublin, as late as Tuesday evening, we learn that several districts have been proclaimed under the Crime and Outrage Suppression Act. The districts are the city and county of Dublin, the city and part of the county of Waterford, the city and part of the county of Cork, and the county of the town of Drogbeda. It is also said that the Rev. Patrick Bj rne, who had been arrested for se- dition, has been rescued from the Bridew ell of Carrick-upon- Suir, and that all the prisoners were released. Another let- ter, written from Waterford, on Monday morning, gives the following' particulars:— "Mr. Meagher's entry into Waterford, which ivasexpecied to take place on yesterday evening at four o'clock, did not occur until half- oast two o'clock this morning, as he was forcibly carried by the Cashel Clubs to the meeting at Slievnanon, where, with Mr. Do-' hc-ny, he addressed at least fifty thousand persons. At eleven o'clock, he left Carrick-on-Suir for Waterford the Carrick Clubs were out in marching order, and numbered twelve hundred men. The multitude which thronged the road for eighteen miles, prevented the procession which accompanied Mr. Meagher from moving along at a quicker pace than three miles per hour and at Pilltown he was compelled to address the assembled thousands at midnight. He remains here for three or four days, and should any attempt be made to seize him on any new charge blood will flow freely." This, perhaps, may be exaggerated; but we should be blind, indeed, if we could venture to say that there is no dan- ger. We deeply regret the temper and tone of most articles written on Ireland in the public papers, as tending to excite passions that are already too much inflamed. "Wise legisla- tion may yet save Ireland from the sanguinary horrors of an intestine conflict; but we confess there is little hope for it from the Whigs. The Foreign news of the week have not been unimportant. Spain is in a state of civil war, and Cabrera is likely to be- come formidable. Carlist bands continue to enter the country, and several successful skirmishes have been fought. The Archduke John is received with unbounded, applause in Germany, and bids fair to conciliate the affections of his nu- merous subjects by his kind manners and energy of charac- ter. France has remained tranquil over last week; and the siege will probably be raised during next week.
