1,11LIRPOOL. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.)—There are many thou- sands of Irishmen in this town, who are for the most part re- pealers, and they are again divided into two sections the moral-force repealers, who hold by the doctrines of Daniel O'Connell, and the physical-force repealers, who, imitating their brethren on the other side of the channel, preach that the i 1 11 pike and the gun are the only arguments that ought to be used. It is well known to the authorities of the town that there are several clubs in Liverpool (but as their proceedings are carried oil with closed doors, the result of their deliberations are not published in the newspapers), modelled on the same plan as the Irish ones, the members of which are all armed with offen- sive weapons, and that they are only waiting for a signal from Ireland before commencing operations in this town. The phy- sical-force Chartists have joined their forces with the repealers, and if their published threats are to be heeded, they intend to burii the warehouses and pillage them, and then proceed to set fire to the shipping in the port, and other suchlike exploits, It is said that the John Mitchel," the Bermuda," and other lominously named clubs have determined to attack the docks. Ithis (Monday) morning, and the authorities have prepared accordingly, having for the last few nights placed many hun- dred additional watchmen to protect their property. The in-tagistrates have also taken every precaution to preserve the peace, and to protect the property of the inhabitants; many 'thousands of merchants, tradesmen, and others have during the last week been sworn in as special constables the police are daily trained to the use of fire-arms; and for the further protection of the town, a military camp, consisting of about 1,500 soldiers, has been formed at Everton, an out-township belonging to Liverpool; besides the above very formidable force, there are about 700 pensioners who have received orders to hold themselves in readiness to march at a moment's notice. A petition to Parliament, signed by the mayor, the Earl of Sefton, and all the local magistrates, praying that Liverpool may be included in the bill introduced into Parliament, on, Saturday last, by Lord John Russell; and praying also for permanent military protection for the town of Liverpool, on account of its contiguity to Ireland, and its importance as a large sea-port town, was signed in an hour, on Saturday by not less than 400 of the principal merchants and bankers, and has since been signed by many more hundreds. The town continued quite tranquil up to Monday evening last.
