Proclamation of Cork County and City. A meeting of the Privy Council was held on Satur- day, and an extraordinary edition of the Dublin Gazette was issued, containing an order, under the Peace Preservation Act, proclaiming the city and county of Cork, and interdicting the possession of arms. A Government reward of £ 200 has been offered for the apprehension of James Stephens, a person con- nected with the Irish People office, passing under several aliases, and believed to have been conducting treasonable correspondence respecting Fenian societies. Six persons, in addition to twenty-two brought up on Saturday, have been since arrested in Dublin. Their names are Ryan, Leeson, O'Connor, Carey, all bricklayers, of 10, St. James'-terraee, Dolphin's-barn; Martin O'Hanlon and O'Carey, Fleet-street; and Quigley, printer, 10, Upper Abbey-street. Two boxes were found, which, it is believed, contain treasonable documents. Bverything is specially quiet in Dublin. There is no excitement. The organisation seems to have, taken no hold on the lower orders generally in the metropolis. The man-of-war Liverpool came into Kingstown- roads on Saturday, and lay ther& till Sunday evening, when she went cruising south. The Royal George, remains at Kingstown. The action of the Government is reliably attributed to a note received in London from Washington, announcing that several agents from Dublin had arrived in America to enlist disbanded Federal soldiers. The Government immediately seized leaders in Dublin and elsewhere simultaneously. At Kinsale, on Monday, a man named Crawley was arrested for high treason. The luggage of passengers arriving by the American steamers at Queenstown is searched by the police for arms and documents. On 'the arrival of the American steamer at Queenstown on Monday, Robinson O'Rafferty, a passenger, was ar- rested. After a private investigation he was com- mitted for trial. Small arms were fouud in the lug- gage of a number of passengers. Parisian Opinion of Fenianism. Referring to the Fenian nuisance, Les JDSbats looks on its development in America as the natural outlet for a disbanded soldiery turned loose on the com- munity of which they are henceforth unfitted or unwilling to resume industrious membership. When Garibaldi, by a precipitate stroke of impolicy sent adrift the whole army of dethroned Bomba, he sowed broadcast the elements of brigandage which cropped up in ubiquitous growth all over the Calabrias and elsewhere. Had an issue for this restless residuum of subsided warfare offered itself in Mexico. Maximilian would have had to meet the whole impetus of discharged idlers bent on buccaneering somewhere. The topic is much discussed among the working population of Paris, and the faubourg artisans are not slow to form a correct estimate of the entire matter. By an odd coincidence the originators of the scheme have unwit- tingly helped French proletaires to hit the right nail on the head. In styling themselves Fenians they were unaware of what that term conveyed to the Gallic ear. Des Faintfans is the most ignoble word of scornful rebuke the labouring classes habitually apply to those who shirk honest handicraft for sham pursuits of this sort. It is a household expression, of which the root is Italian (far niente), and the meaning best exempli. fied in the lazzwoni of that land, j
