THE STATE PRISONERS IN IRELAND. On Friday, it was currently reported that it had been offi- cially notified to the State prisoners that the extreme sentence passed upon them had been commuted to banishment for life to Van Diemen's Land, where, on their arrival, they were to be furnished with tickets of leave, and spared the degradation of being associated with ordinary convicts. Mr. O'Brien was labouring under considerable depression of spirits, as though he had abandoned the idea of any further mitigation of his punish- ment. The ill-fated gentleman, it is said, had insured his life to a large amount for the benefit of his younger children, and had already paid a sum of E2,000 on the policy of insurance, which becomes null and void in the event of his transportation for the crime of which he has been convicted. Mr. Meagher continues in excellent health and high spirits, and the same may be said of the other prisoners. There is no very immediate intention of removing them, and the ultimatum of the Govern- ment will not be made public until the latter end of the week. The memorial on their behalf was presented to Lord Claren- don by deputation, on Tuesday.
