IRELAND. THE EARL OF CLARENDON, and suite, arrived on Satur- day night, at ten o'clock, in Kingstown Harbour, from Holy- head, by her Majesty's mail-packet. Banshee, Lieutenant Smidlott, R.N., commander. The Dragon frigate and the Admiralty steamers burned blue lights, which had a striking effect as the Banshee approached the quay. THE ROMAN CATHOLIC Piu>iACY.There is as yet nothing definite with respect to the success of Archbishop Crolly; but a belief is entertained that the choice will fall on the Rev. Dr. Dixon, Professor of Scripture in Maynooth Col- lege. The rev. gentleman, who is a priest of the diocese of Armagh—in itself regarded as a recommendation—is said to be a man of profound learning, and of quiet and unosten- tatious habits. He is about forty-five years of age. The Rev. Dr. Russell, another professor in the same college, will also, it is thought, be a candidate. He, too, belongs to the class of moderates," and is esteemed as a sound scholastic divine but his comparative youth, notbeing.over thirty-eight z." years of age, is viewed as a bar to his otherwise fair claims to the primacy. It is reported that the H ultras" will make a push for their favourite—the renowned Bishop Cantwell, of Meath. TIm WEATHER.—There has been a most favourable change since Friday night; the wind has veered to due west, and although a great deal of rain has fallen in the interval, the air is mild and even genial. Z, Tut: CHOLERA has nearly altogether disappeared in Cork, Limerick, and Eimis. 0 THE population of the whole country is fearfully thinned. Thus, in Kilmee (Skihbereen Union) the number of inhabit- -8,000, in 1841—is now under 5,500.—-Sun. DEATH OF VISCOUNT MONCK. —The above-named noble- man expired on Friday morning at his residence in Merrion- square, Dublin, having survived a few months his elder bro- ther the Earl of H.athdown, by whose death the earldom beoarott extinct. «
PRINCE ALBERT'S VISIT TO GREAT GRIMSBY. The visit of Prince Albert to lay the foundation stone of the new docks, which will one day make Great Grimsby one of the first ports of England, is a memorable event in the history of Lincolnshire. The Prince left town on Tuesday for Brocklesby, the seat of tho Bad of Yarborough, visit frig Lincoln on his way, and inspecting the glorious cathedral of that ancient city. On arriving at Lincoln, the Prince was received by Lord Yarborough, and by the mayor and other authorities of the city, who presented an address of welcome to his Royal Highness. Nothing could surpass the affec- tionate and loyal reception which the Prince met with at every stage of his journey; and when, in the afternoon, he reached Brocklesby, he found, drawn up in front of the hall, the whole of Lord Yarborough's tenantry, to the number of 500 or 600, all mounted, and presenting, as may be imagined, a very striking aud interesting appearance. Many of them wore tight cords and top boots, and, firmly seated on their hunters, revealed at aglance the favourite pastime of North Lincolnshire farmers. At twelve o'clock, the Prince, accompanied by the Earl and Countess of Yarborough, and nearly the whole of the guests staying at the mansion, left the hall, and, escorted by the tenantry on horseback, proceeded to Great Grimsby. On his arrival, he received an address from the corporation of the town, and immediately joined the procession, which con- ducted him to the docks, where his Royal Highness laid the foundation stone with the usual forms, amidst the cheers of thousands of spectators, and the booming ofcannoll from the Sheeruess squadron, which had been sent down under Admiral Elliott for the occasion. The ceremony con- cluded with a prayer offered up by the Bishop of Lincoln. A grand luncheon then took place in a pavilion erected for the purpose, at which no less than 1,000 guests, many of whom were ladies, were assembled. After the healih of the Queen had been duly honoured, the chairman, the Earl of Yarborough, proposed, in an appropriate speech, the health of Prince Albert, and may God bless him." His Royal Highness rose to acknowledge the loast, and was most enthusiastically received. He said—My lord, I return you my most sincere thanks that any exertions of mine should have met with your approbation and to you, ladies and gentlemen, for the great marks of cordiality and kind- ness with which you have received this toast (cheers). The act which has this day been performed, and in which you have been so kind as to desire that I should take the chief part, could not otherwise but make a deep impression on me. We have been laying the foundation of a dock, not only as a place of safety, refuge, and refitment for our mer- cantile marine, and calculated to receive the largest steamers of her Majesty's navy, but it may—and I trust it will-be the foundation of a great commercial port (cheers). This work, in future ages, when we shall long have quitted this scene, and when, perhaps, even our names shall be forgot- ten, (cries of No, no, never !") will, I hope, become a new centre of life, with the vast and ever increasing commerce of the world, and a most important link in the connexion of the east and west. This work has been undertaken, like almost all great enterprises in this great country, by private enterprise, private capital, and at private risk, and it shares also in that other feature so peculiar to the enterprises of Englishmen, that, strongly attached as they are to the in- stitutions of their country, and gratefully acknowledging the protection of the laws under which those enterprises are undertaken and prosper, they love to connect them in some manner with the authority of the Crown and the person of the sovereign (cheers). It is the persuasion of this circum- stance which has impelled me to respond to your call, and come amongst you as the readiest mode of testifying to you how strongly her Majesty the Queen appreciates and reci- procates those feelings. I have derived the deepest gratifi- cation from this visit, as it has brought me for the first time to the county of Lincoln, so celebrated for its agricultural pursuits, and showing so fine an example of the energy of the national character, which, in this county, has succeeded in transforming the most unhealthy swamps into rich and fertile lands. I could not I am Sure possibly have seen finer specimens of Lincolnshire farming than have been shown to me by your noble chairman, who has not only made me acquainted with the most recent improvements in this county, but also with the gratifying state of the relations between landlord and tenant existing here, which I hope may become an example throughout the kingdom. Here it is felt that the mutual advantage of both does not depend on a written letter of agreement, but on that mutual trust and confidcncc which has always been considered a sufficient security to warrant the extensive outlay of capital and energy neces- sary to the carrying out of farming operations on a large scale. I now, in conclusion, beg to propose to you a toast which I am sure you will be all anxious to drink with me— Prosperity to the Great Grimsby Dock" (cheers). Let us implore the Almighty to bestow His blessing on this work, under which alone it can prosper. I give you The Great Grimsby Dock and the health of the Chairman and Direc- tors of the Dock Company (loud cheers, in the midst of which his Royal Highness resumed his seat). The Chairman acknowledged the compliment, and thanked the Prince for the honour he had conferred upon them. The Prince then withdrew, and was escorted to the train by a large portion of the assembled company.
FRANCE ON THE PEACE QUESTION.—The following extract from La Prcsse, one of the leading French journals, will show that, in that country, they are making rapid progress towards peace principle" Will France have peace ? Does France think that it will be better to expend her strength in the growth of her population rather than in the increase of her territory that it will be better to sow the earth with men than to re;ip them down; that liberty, which is for the benefit of all, is pre- ferable to glory, which falls to the lot of but few ? Does France think that her honour ought, above all things, to consist in shel- tering democracy under the flag of civilisation, and rendering the return of all despotism impossible, whether springing from a throne or a scaffold ? Let France declare this. This will be worthy the name of a policy." A YOUNG MAN has lost his life at Preston from an accident which he very foolishly caused. He was attempting to unload a gun which was too heavily charged, and had drawn part of the contents, well, to destroy the paper wadding, he put a piece of heated iron down the barrel; some powder that re- mained in it exploded, and the piece of iron with part of the charge was driven into his lace; in falling back he suffered a concussion of the brain, and died some days after. AN ENGLISH POTTERY IN FRANCE.—As a proof of the revival of confidence in the stability of the French Government, it may be mentioned that an Irish gentleman has just purchased one of the large factories on the banks of the Seine, which was abandoned during the revolution of February, 1848, and last week left Southampton for Havre, in the Courier steamer, ac- companied by about thirty of his workpeople. A great number of his workmen had already preceded him. IN JANUARY last, five hundred-pound notes were stolen from a pocket-book on the counter of the Union Bank at Glasgow, and the theft was so cleverly managed that it left no trace. The notes were issued by the ClydcsdaleBank that establish- ment managed to call in all their hundred-pound notes but six. Last week a hundred-pound note was lodged in a savings' bank by a Greenock victualler, one Walker; this led to inqui- ries; another note was found in the ceiling of Walker's shop while the other three stolen notes were discovered at the house of a man named Holmes, at Glasgow. EMBEZZLEMENT BY A POLICE CONSTABLE AT BIRMINGHAM.—- On Friday last, one of the Birmingham police force, named Lindford, absconded from that town, taking with him three £ 5 notes, with which he had been entrusted to get change for gold and silver to pay the men. He has since been. captured in Wales, and on Monday was brought before the magistrates at Birmingham, and committed for trial at the assizes. OREXING OF THE DOCK, AT GLOUCESTER.—On Thursday week the vessels in the old dock were decorated with their Hags. At twelve o'clock, the Torrance Roice, of Wexford, from Constan- tinople, entered the new dock, with her yards manned and colours flying, guns firing, and cheers from an immense con- course of persons assembled for the occasion. She was fol- lowed by English, French, Prussian, Austrian, Hanoverian, and Dutch vessels, some of which immediately commenced discharging their cargoes into trucks on the railway, which were in readiness. The persons employed at the basin were afterwards entertained at the joint expense of the Canal Com- pany and Mr. Guest, the contractor. The new basin nearly doubles the quay-side accommodation, and there are two addi- tional cranes, each capable of lifting upwards of 20 tons. "PROTECTION FOlt AGRICULTURE" still supplies a topic for meetings in the provinces, but not one that has provoked much earnest or original oratory.

FRANCE. The Memorial Bourclciais gives .a;letter addressed by the President of the Republic to his cousin Napoleon, rebuking' him for having said, in passing through' Bourdesiux, "that dominated by the chiefs of the reactionary movement, his cousin did not freely act upon his own inspirations; that, impatient of the yoke, he was ready to throw it otf and that, in order to assist him to do so, it was necessary at the approaching elections to send to the Chamber men hostile to his Government rather than men of the moderate party." He expressed a persuasion that the approaching elections will advanca the period of political reforms, by strengthening the Republic by order and moderation, and avers.that to bring closer to each other all the old parties, to unite, to reconcile them, is the object of his eiforts. For these reasons he can- not approve of his cousin becoming a candidate in twenty departments. It appears that the -President's cousin never made use of the words attributed to him and that it was a plan laid for the. President by the Jesuit supporters of the Legitimist reactionaries, into which he has unwittingly fallen. The President entered on his 41-st year on Thurs- day. A grand ball was given at the Elysee in honour of the event. More than 200 foreigners—the majority Eng- lish—received invitations. Some time since an accusation was brought against the Provisional Government of having entertained a proposition for a declaration of national bankruptcy. Several "of the members of that Government admitted that such a proposi- tion had been made, but declared that the members of the Provisional Govcrnmeat had indignantly rejected the pro- posal to break faith with the public creditor. A question arose as to who had been the author of this very honest proposition, and great was the exultation of the reactionary press, and loud the demands for the "name." The members of the Provisional Government refused to betray the name of the adviser whose counsels they had refused to adopt, when one of the reactionary journals in the provinces declared that. M. Goudchaux was the man. M. Goudchaux was, in self-de- fence, obliged to name the real culprit, and he turns out to be a professed friend of order," the chosen associate of the Presi- dent, the confidential adviser of the Ministers—M. Achille Fould, the banker. M. Fould attempted an explanation, but M. Marrast declared that M. Goudchaux had at the time mentioned the circumstance to him, and M. Cremieux stated that M. Achille Fould had subsequently stated to him the proposition which lie had made to Jvl. Goudchaux, and had expressed his regret that it had not been adopted. M. Achille Fould said no more. General de Lamoriciere has published an address to the electors of :the Sarthe, in which he says:—" I look on Uni- versal Suffrage as the only source from which can hencefor- ward issue a legal and regular Government; it allows all struggles to be restricted to the field of free discussion; it contains the germ of possible progress for the future."
ROME. La Prcsse has a communicated, i. c., an Austrian, article, containing certain statements relative to the Roman ques- tion. It enumerates the facts, already published, of the Pope's minister, Aiitonelli, having called on the four Ca- tholic powers to restore his Holiness by force of arms. It mentions that the four powers, Austria, France, Spain, and Naples, entertained the demand that Austria pro- posed to entrust the execution to Spain and Naples, whose troops were to march on Rome, whilst a French squadron was to appear at Civita, and an Austrian division to occupy the legations. This fine scheme was marred at the outset by one of the powers, which kindly offered its services, not being able to perform them. Spain, in fact, had no vessels to transport an army, nor funds to provide it with. The French refused to furnish transports for the army of Narvaez. The scheme having thus broken down, the Pope applied to Austria alone. Austria warned France that she was going to intervene; and hence the French Cabinet's precipitated intervention, on the under- standing, nevertheless, that the Austrians were to stop at Bologna, and the French at Civita. We believe, however C-says the Duily News), that the French expedition has sailed with the certitude that it will be necessary for the force to march to Rome, and that the French will arrive there first, if not remain there alone.. The Assemblee Rationale says A serious difference has arisen in the diplomatic body on the question of re-esta- blishing the Pontifical authority. Austria desires that Pius IX. should remain in the plenitude of his rights, and make such concessions as he might think fit. Tne repre- sentative of Lord Palmerston requires that the concessions should be determined before the re-establishment, and Pius IX. has very decidedly refused to submit to any such re- straint." Tne Easter festival has passed off here with more than ordinary cclat, the laity having taken the matter up in conse- quence of the prebendaries of St. Peter showing a disposi- tion to throw a wet blanket on the commmnora tion of this great Christian celebration. As they would not issue the usual order for the cupola, the corps of engineers and the artillery staff undertook the lighting up of the church, and it never blazed before with such effulgence. Bengal lights of a most irradiating character, and various other resplendent manifestations of pyrotechnic skill, shed a halo over the shrine, and caused it to be wondered at from rhe Alban 'and Tivoli hills as well as far out at sea. On Good Friday, the old practice of suspending under the dome a colossal illuminated cross was resumed after twenty years' discontinuance, it having been suppressed by Pope Leo XII., on pretext of English and foreign visitors behaving; disre- spectfully in the church. Oil Easter Sunday the whole population, with the garrison and national guard, assembled as usual in the great area before the cathedral of Christen- dom, and, as the Pontiff was not here to bless his diocesans, as of old, one of the officiating prelates, bearing the conse- crated host in a rich golden 44 remonstrance,appeared iu the accustomed balcony, and gave Christ's blessing to the Z!1 city and the world." Perfect order continues to prevail, and the only occurrence of a troublesome sort was an attempt of the galley-slaves to break out of prison at the baths of Diocletian, but without, succeeding. This was part of a re- trograde plot, all which contrivances have invariably failed in Rome from first to last. By a decree of the 9th, the triumvirs of Rome have im- posed a fine of 120 scudi (700 francs) upon each of the canons of the chapters of the Vatican, for refusing' to celebrate Easter.
ITALY. It is believed that the French division will remain at Civita Vecchia. while the Austrian?, to the number of —the French consisting of 14,000—will bo placed eft echelon between Modplla and Fervara, in order, should it be neces- sary, to occupy the legations. Should the occupation of Rome itself be deemed expedient for the restoration of tran- quillity, perhaps 15,000 men, equally taken fro pi both armies, will march thither. No objection has been made on the part of the British Government to the joint intervention of Austria and France as above-mentioned. TURIN, APIIIL 15.—The Italian question assumes a new aspect, from the fact gaining credence here that the French and English Ministers, one or both, are usin'g influence with the Government here, and its agents at Milan, Vienna, and Paris, to induce Piedmont to delay coming to a conclusion wirh Austria on the subject of the treaty of peace, under the specious plea that they will use their influence with Austria to obtain better terms for Piedmont. The real motive is supposed to be the fear lest Austria should require and Pied- mont consent to a secret treaty of alliance, to the annihila- tion of the influence of France and England. It too power- ful in Italr, Austria's secret as wel! as avowed alliance with Russia and Prussia might render it dangerous for England's interest in the east of Europe, and especially in respect to our Asiatic dominions. The unfortunate Lombards cannot resign rtfemseHps to be definitely consigned to the insufferable yoke of their Austrian oppressors. i Late advices from Leghorn describe that city as in a state of the greatest excitement, and resolved to hold out against submission to the grand ducal authority. A letter from Turin of the 9th states that General La Marmora, with a portion of the force under his command, was about to march on to reduce it. '„
GERMANY. In the National Assembly, in Frankfort, on the 19th inst. the President read a note, addressed by Herr Caiinphauscii,, the Prussian Plenipotentiary, to the Baron Von Gagern,; which thus concludesConsidering how important the question is for the future destinies of Germany, the King's Government considers it proper to wait a little longer before it sets forth as the ground of its future decision the fact, that the larger German States have not expressed their con- sent to his Majesty's acceptance of the position assigned to him by the-Imperial Assembly." Herr Giskra (all Austrian Deputy) declared that he and his friends should not leave the Assembly. If he did, it would be for reasons different from those set forth by the Olmutz Cabinet. He had not received his mission from the Austrian Government, and that Government could not take it away from him (loud cheers). The Baron Von Gagern then took occasion to state that the Central Power might be justified in interfering in the affairs of Italy, with reference to Austria, Genoa, and Sardinia but the Assembly could not express wishes for the success of a contest, the motives and tendencies of which were not made clear. Ho trusted that Austria would in- troduce into Lombardy a system of Government different from the preceding one, and maintain its possessions, not through terror and military oppression, but by just conces- sions to the national feeling. Twenty-two Austrian mem- bers here handed up a document containing sentimentssimilar to those expressed by Herr Giskra. The Assembly then adjourned till Monday, oil which day the Report of the Com- mittee of Thirty on the answer of the King of Prussia will be received. Thirty of the German States have, through their pleninoteutiaries, accepted the Frankfort constitution, and approved the Imperial election of the 2ocli of March. The declarations of the four Kingdoms remain behind. Wur- temberg's adherence to the circular note is by this time probably handed in. Saxony will be forced by her Chambers, Hanover by her material interests, into the great stream of union. And even in Bavaria a favourable diversion in the same direction is momentarily expected.
BELGIUM. BRUSSELS, APRIL 20.—Great satisfaction has been ex- pressed here by the fact that the King of Holland has con- ferred upon his Majesty the King of Belgium the order of the Grand Cross of the Netherlands. Oil the 18th, Baron Bentinckwas received by the King in an ofHcial audience, and presented his letters plenipotentiary, and had, at the same time, the honour of giving the King the insignia from the King of Holland. 0 c Z)
DENMARK AND THE DUCHIES. We learn from the Hamburgh papers and correspondence that a pause has taken place in the operations of the belli- gerent armies, owing to the want on the German side of heavy artillery wherewith to cover their attack upon the island of Alsen, which is held by a Danish force of about 18,000 men. Artillery, with bombs and other ammunition, is daily expected to arrive from Prussia, and the German troops are preparing to commence the attack with great energy the moment it has come. The spirit of the German troops is excellent; but the Prussian regiments, especially the Landwehr, lack the martial enthusiasm which animated them in last year's campaign; they grumble at the war, for which they cannot see the occasion, and though they will fight when ordered to do so, their hearts will not go along with the work of their hands.
SPAIN. It is said, that Cabrera has given up the contest in conse- quence of the capture of the Count de Montemolin, and has issued a manifesto to that effect, and gone into France.
TURKEY. Letters from Constantinople, of the 5th instant, announce the death of the celebrated Hussein Paclia, the Governor of Widiu. The Sultan remains firm in his refusal to consent to the seven years' treaty with Russia.
UNITED STATES. The Canada mail steam-ship arrived at Liverpool on Thursday morning, with papers from New York to the 4th instant. The President is stated to be maintaining his ground stoutly against the office-seekers, and to be making but very few changes. The rivers and lakes were tho- roughly open to navigation, and an immense activity of traffic was already manifested. The accounts from Cali- fornia are of the usual stamp. A new city called Bruecia had been founded on the Sacramento thirty miles from San Francidco; and a provisional Government had been or- ganised in public meeting. Among the resolutions passed, was one to oppose the introduction of slavery in every shape and form." The designs of President Polk upon Cuba have come to light through the instrumentality of Mr. Rey- nolds, who was at that time Secretary of the United States Legation at Madrid. It appears that the Administration had instructed Mr. Saunders, the Minister, to sound the Spanish Cabinet as to its disposition to dispose of Cuba. The result, as is already known, was the rejection of the propo- sition.
CANADA. Accounts from Montreal come down to the 3rd instant. The disturbances which had occurred at Montreal had been repeated in a more serious form at Toronto on the 22nd of March. Effigies of Messrs. Baldwin, Biake, and Mackenzie, were carried hy an immense mob, and at last burnt opposite Mr. Baldwin's house. The house of Mr. M'Intosh, where Mr. Mackenzie was staying, was assailed with stones and the police wore attacked on their appearance to protect it. Special constables were enrolled and the military were called out, and thus order was restored. The latest papers do not mention further disturbances. On the 3rd instant, the Go- vernor had not yet signified his assent to the Indemnity Bill. The Canadian press continues to hold the language of ex- citement. The journals of the Uaited States comment on these events,'and on the tone of the Canadian press; foreseeing troubles and a speedy raising of the Republican flag. The Boston JIerutd professes to have received disclosures concerning a contemplated revolution in and invasion of the Canadas by Irish Patriots, which has been for some rime past agitated, as well in the United States as in the neigh- bouring provinces of the British kingdom. It says that many of the officers of the volunteers, wl0 served in the United States army in Mexico, are disciplining and arming a large body of men for this purpose.
