THE SPECIAL COMMISSION. DUBLIN, SUNDAY MOKNTNO. The Special Commission will certainly be held in Tip- perary about the time already mentioned, towards the close of September. The indictment against Messrs. Smith O'Brien, Meagher, and the other persons implicated in the insurrection at Ballingarry, has been prepared. It is. a very voluminous document. In order that there should be no delay after the opening of the commission, the indictment will be printed at once. As soon as the bills are found by the grand jury, printed copies of the indictment, with the names of the witnesses for the prosecution, will be furnished to the agents of the prisoners, who will be required to plead within the time specified by the Act. It is stated that Chief Justice Blackburne and Baron Richards will be the presid- ing judges. The petit jury for the trial of the prisoners will be taken from the grand panel, and all the persons on that panel will be bound to attend, with the exception, of course, of the twenty-three who will form the grand jury for tito finding of the bills of indictment. t, THE WEATHER continued fine during Saturday, with g higher temperature than has been felt since the commence- ment of the rain in the early part of last month. SuehAJ. harvest day as this is invaluable and in the country around Dublin the farmers are taking full advantage of it. On Sun- day last, when the weather was equally favourable, an im- mense quantity of grain was reaped in the county of Wick- low, where the farmers in some instances fearing a return of rain, removed the grain with the straw to places of shelter. TIIE SALE of Mr. Charles G. Duffy's property was com- menced on Wednesday, by Mr. Thomas Dillon, the auc- tioneer, of Henry-street. The sale, which had been adver- tised for some days previously, attracted very great attention, and an immense concourse of most respectable persons were present. The property sold at very high figures, in every instance realising more than the original cost. Yesterday I KALE commenced with the greenhouse plants, &e. Tha I grounds about the house PR £ SER.T°D a very novel appearance; ggme hundreds of vehicles drove 17r, at an eady hflttr, and there could not have been less than 2,000 persons, all of most respectable appearance, present. There was a. degree of anxiety, such as was scarcely ever witnessed at a puÙ sale, manifested to possess some relic of Mr. Duffy. When the greenhouse property had been disposed of, the parlour furmlure was set up. The utmost interest was manifested when some six or seven portraits (cabinet size) of the writers of the Nation were held up for competition. These consieticd of ohn Q'Cohhell,1 Banim, M'Manus, Barry, Hevlett, and the late Thomas M'Ncvin. There were several other pox- traits, all of which sold at enormously high prices, as they were portable. Some French engravings and pictures alfJo brought double their original value. The wines (principaUv port and sherry) went off at high figures. Mrs. Duffy's harp sold for 1,26. Mr. Duffy's costume, as T. C., and his bar- wig and gown, brought between three and four pounds each article. A par lour screen. WR>VL-R,RL hy I)uff-y, brought. E5, and window-curtains wese knocked down at £ 17 a pair. The bronze and bisque ornaments sold at four times their cost. The pictures of "Reading the Nation," and Seizing for Rent" sold for £15, and every other article went off at equally high prices. The furniture used by the state pri- soners, when confined in Richmond Bridewell, will he SET up this day, as the auction had to be adjourned in conse- quence of the immense crowd collected yesterday. THE DESIGNS OF THE REBELS.—The Irish correspondent of the Globe says.—" The person who has given the most material and important evidence with regard to the recent; conspiracy against the state, is at present in Dublin Castle; but, under existing circumstances, It would not be judicious to give bis name. He was one of the council of the Irish Confederation, an earnest speaker at their committee meet. ings, and knew more than any of the body, except a few of the most prominent members. His evidence, when given in a court of justice, will excite great surprise as to the extent of the conspiracy, and foreign aid was not to have been con- R fined to France and America. The recent disclosures con- nected with the Chartists in London, show what elements the confederates relied on in England, and had it not been: for the arrest of the leaders here before their plans had been fully matured, in the first week of September, Ireland, Eng- land, and Scotland (partially), would have been deluged with blood, while fire would have destroyed millions worth ef property."
