COMMENCEMENT OF THE IRISH REBELLION- THURLES, CLONMEL, AND KILKENNY IN ARMS. (By the Electric Telegraph Company's Express.) DUBLIN, WEDNESDAY.—The whole of the south of Ireland is in rebellion. A special engine has just arrived in Dublin, from four miles this side of Thurles (eighty-two miles in two hours). The station at Thurles is on fire; the rails for seve- ral miles torn up; and, as the engines arrive, the mob intend detaining them. At Clonmel the fighting is dreadful; the people arrived in masses; the Dublin Club leaders are there the troops were speedily overpowered. The military at Carrick have been driven back, and their quarters fired. At Kilkenny the contest is proceeding, and there the mob are also said to be successful. No news from Waterford or Cork. The military at Carrick have shown disaffection. SIR GEORGE GREY stated in the House of Commons last night at five o'clock that he had received despatches from the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and from these he had rea- son to believe that the reports in circulation were much ex- aggerated. That an insurrection had broken out was desti- tute of truth but still, he said, the despatch certainly de- scribes the state of the country in the neighbourhood of Clonmel, Carrick, and Thurles to be dreadful.
