The Observer has been belching forth lies against Sir ROBERT PEEL, which Sir ROBERT himself has deigned to expose. It would have had the public to believe that the Right Honour- able Baronet expected a Civil War in Ireland, in the event of his accession to office; forget- ing, or rather concealing the fact, that the four years of his occupancy of the Home Office, were among the most peaceable that country has enjoyed during the present century. As to Ireland, new branchings of the detestable Ribband Conspiracy have been discovered at Belfast; and if report speaks truly, the Govern- ment are in a condition to strike a decisive blow against that many headed monster, pro. vided only they have wisdom enough and courage. Rumour, however, often speaks falsely. And we are truly glad that such is the case with re- gard to Lord BROUGHAM. His Lordship's death, by the breaking down of his carriage, was an- nounced in London at the beginning of the week and the consequence was that next morning every paper contained a tribute to his memory, written, without a single exception, in the most kindly spirit towards that nobleman. Happily the rumour was false. An accident it is true had befallen his Lordship, in the manner we have mentioned but fortunately without per- sonal injury to himself. The following was the version most generally believed :— On Saturday last Lord Brougham was proceeding from his residence near Penrith, in a carriage which he had hired from an inn in the neighbourhood, to view an ancient castle at some distance. He was accompanied by Mr Leader, the member for West- minster, and Mr afto. In their journey the carriage broke down, and was upset with its occupants into a ditch. One ot the horses kicked Lord Brougham in the head, rendering him uable to rise, and apparently quite insensible. W. hlle m this state, the horses still struggling, the carriage fell completely over upon Lord Brougham's head, and crushed him to death on the instant. Mr Leader, we learn, received such serious injuries that it was not supposed he could survive them. Mr Shafto escaped with comparatively little injury.
