UJ Without regret we have to state that the first ol ocean steamers has passed into other hand*, having been sold to ihe Oriental Steam Navigation ('0111pany toi ?32,000, including her late com, lete repairs. As to her colossal successor, the Great Hiitain, I we hope the solicited mediution of the Hoard ??t Trade will be uva lable tor her liberation, t hi farther cott.-iderniioti of the plan of floating that Suge vessel of StWO tons, out of the too narrow ock, on iron tanks, it appears to be so fraught "with danger that we understand it must be abandoned So then the <ireat Britain is in the preuicament of the tatted weasel, that, while feeding and fattening m the farmer's granary, grew too big for the hide by which it gained admission. The mutual billiciiJties of the Steamship Company and the Bristol Dock Directors have, however, been fairly brought under the consideration of the Board ot Trade. The case is one in which the nation at large is concerned, and the interests of commerce and navigation are not a little involved, and though it is anomalous and without precedent, it cannot surely be without remedy.

O'Coixvru. ?The lust issue of our publication gave intelligence of the conviction of O'Cormel! and his associates. Since the day of the trial terminating, tlie Agitator has been making progresses through England, haranguing the people on the subject of Ins conviction, and endcivortng to get up a sensation, bucli oh he hop es will awe the Government, and prevent them enforcing the pirn dty which the law must necessarily record against htm. There exists a vast diversity of opinion on the suhject'ol the punishment to be award nf, and the papers abound with reports and statements, most of which, il carefully examined, will be ion id utterly worthless, and in no way consistent either with the law or common sense view of the matter. The best informed parties seem deoidedlv <>t opinion that whatever punishment the court indicts, will be steadily adhered to and carried out. It is not at all likely the Government will interfere in any shape or form, unless it he to see that justice takes its course, and that the agitators are not allowed to escape Irom the net just at the moment of its being closed around them. We are csnfirmeii in our opinion in this matter hy the London Standard and Morning Herald nevvsp tpers, hotli of which have for some weeks past been gradually pressing the public mind for a result such us iv mention. From the very commencement of the Irish Stat* Trials these two journals seem to have been minutely correct in their views of future results, and therefore we can hardly he wrong in taking their opinion on the grand finale. The Morning Herald emphatically declares, and, as it e.ivs. "u.siu authority," that there is no foundation whatever for the rumors that have been circulated as to the intentions of uie Government, and the desire imputed to them, not to have the Traversers called up, lor judgment this approaching term. <>*Conneil and hisassociates will most certainly be brought up for judg ment on Monday the lath. It is competent to unaccused to li ave what is called "a writ of erroi," and this without the assent or approval of the Aitorncy-Grti'Tal. This writ of error will most likely be iak n, but even if the conspirators should emit out, it cannot elay the pissing sentence more than four days at the very utmost, and the sentence inay be pronounced even before the writ of error can be taken. The Morning Herald declares that all the arrangements are actually made to have the aenteneej on the Traversers carried into effect imMEDUTi.t/r after they are pronounced by the Coui t. This is saying in plain and distinct language that O'Connell will very shortly find himself lodged in one of her M ijesty's gaols, and there are a multitude of circumstanced which go to prove this view of the case. O'Connell himself is said to be of that opinion, and his only li ipe is in setting up an agitation in England such as might awe the Government into u remission of his sentence. Ihit his course is hopeless. There have been several demonstrations?one in Covrnt Garden Theatre, in London, and another in Liverpool, but neiiher of them have excited any interest in England. Englishmen cannot forget the former rtvilings of the man who now seeks to seduce them by the fawning fl tilery and whining sycophancy, the use and application oi which he has made himself so (ami h ir with. We repeat, there can he no doubt of O'Connell being sentenced, and <juite as little doubt of his t-eiiienc being carried into execution ; and with regard to sympathy in England, there is very little of it, and thai little* isdaily becoming weaker. In Ireland the Government are well provided wuh trooos, so that no disturbances can possibly gain head. Mr. O'Connell, who has been making a circuit of the principal towns of England, explaining Ins grievances, and the circumstances arising out of the late trial, was in Liverpool last week, where he addressed a densely-packed meeting ai the Amphitheatre. Time is making havoc with hint There were some good points in his speech, but it lacked the vigor and freshness that marked his efforts of a former day. lie spoke with less of that easy, rollicking abandon, so characteristic of the O'Connell, the great agit itor, in his palmy days. The mental and physical energies of a man at three score and ten?die allotted duration of human life?will exhibit symptoms of decay, but in the case of this remarkable man, the decay is apparent to those wi o saw him even twelve months ago. Doubtless the anxiety attending the late trials, and above all, the conviction, has done its work. Nevertheless, he threatens, on his return from Ireland, whither he is going to partake of a series of pu ic festivities, which will resemble so many oratories, to make a crusade through the length and breadth of this part of the island, accompanied by some twenty or thirty of the leading liberals, for the purpose of striking up popular indignation agiiu.-t the ministry and its acts In all his recent speeches, the bitterest of his vitnberations have Ic . n levelled against the Chief Justice who tried liim, and, ufter nirn, against Sir James Graham a proof that no compromise with ihe Government about lii.s imprisonment lias been thought of on eith-r side The middle of April, when he is to lie brought up lor judgment, is approaching, arid curiosity is on the stretch to know how this " ugly customer" 1 to Ic disposed of. That an appe ' |to the II use of Lords is contemplated.

Oregon.?Some anxiety prevails on this side for the remit ol the various negotiations now pending between th:s government and that of the U. States, and especially with regard to thr Oregon question ; but an universal opinion prevails tbat every.thing will be adjudged satisfactorily. This opinion is strengthened by the reception our new Minister has met with at the hands of our American tiieuds; and we cannot express the sense entertained of the generous kindness extended towards mm, as to all others who have ever been entrusted withthe maiiagemeui and negotiation ot diplomatic mailers between us. European Affairs.?The existing state of European relations at the present time is most satisfactory to all lovers of peace and narmony. uur r renew ii'-ignui'is n??r mucunj laid aside much of their acerbity of manner; and we need only point to the zealous aid now rendered by British capitalists to the various railway undertakings now progressing in France, as an evidence of the good feeling which exists. The French government have determined on prosecucuting several important lutes of railway to Boulogne, Calais, and Dunkirk; all these are for the purpose of facilitating the communication with England ; arul now that the railway belween London and Dover is completed, we shall have a.speedier and more regular intercourse, and may look for a heller understanding of each other's views and feelings. A vast proportion of the capital employed in the construction of the French lines of railway comes fr*m the pockets of British capitalists: this must of necessity give us a greater interest in the piogre s and well-being of tlie country. Her Majesty the Queen of England intends taking up lier residence 111 the Isle of Wight during a portion of the summer; ami we have it on the best authority that the King of the French will pay her a visit before she returns to Windsor. How gratifying to see the Sovereigns of such countries meeting together, and enjoying the delights of social intercourse, free irom all the tedious restraint usually imposed upon Royalty whenever visils of this sort are meditated ! His Imperial Majesty 1 f Russia will also visit England in the course of the summer, and thus add to tin- honor and delight of the Queen. We could wish die President of the United States to be numbered among our visitors, and can assure our American friends that the chief magistrate of their Union would be second to none, in receivieg the honor and enthusiastic reception, such as England will nt h 11 times render to the individual presiding over their great and important country. Another part of our publication will record the death of Bernadotte, King of Sweden, a man who has figured so much in the various actions connected with the modern history ol Europe Presentation of General Tom Thttmb at the Court of Sr. James's.?The redoubtable Tom Thumb, whose departure lor England on board the pood packet-chip Yorkshire, produced quite u scene at New York, hardly interior to the landing of the Romans under Julius Caesar, on the shores of our " tight little island," or, in more recent times, to the debarkation of the modern 8ardanapalus George IV , at Kingston, in the sister country, when his Irish subjects, in the exuberence of their characteristic generosity, rent the air with acclamations for favors in expectancy: or to the entry of Queen Victoria into the capital of her ancient kingdom of Scotland, when she stole a march upon the astonished and unrobed Huilles? the little fellow, his transatlantic admirers will he glad to learn, lias excited in the modern Babylon, amongst the nobility and gentry of the first city in the world, a degree of interest and of wonder, un ( ({Hulled, if possible, even in iiis own country, and which has even penetrated into the palaces of royalty. it is somewhat singular that two of the most popular objects of attraction in England at the present moment are American?" native hikI to the manner born"?namely, the beautiful and classical performances of the Ki.,ley's which have been the theme of general and unqualified admiration in the metropolis and the provinces; and that strange freak of nature, the i-ny hut symmetrical and interesting Charles Stretton. The little "General" is at present located in very fashionable quarters? the Egyptian Hall, in Piccadilly, in the verv heart of the great London world. The price of admission excludes all but tile higher classes. 1) iilv, the hall is thronged w ith the (lite, and a friend of ours who saw this miniature specimen of the human race for the first time, a few days back, counted no less than one hundred and forty-six carriages of the nobility and wealthy classes, anxiously waiting to pay theirrespec.s to the "General!" The glare of beauty and fashion, of whieh the Egyptian Hall is the daily recipient, throwsthe court of King Arthur and Queen Dollalolla into the shade. The tiny " General's" levees at the Egyptian Hall, are daily frequented by the youth and hrauty of London high life?no (frizzles, Noodles, I) odles, orGlumdulco's find admission there. The muse of Fielding never could have contemplated in its wildest mood, that the aristocracy of Fngland, or the court of St. James's, under the sway of our popularfemale Sovereign, would address a diminutive importation of humanity front the otherside of the ntlantic, in the language of his hero? Welcome, thrice welcome, mighty Tom Thumb, Thou tiny hero?pigmy giant queller ; w hat gralituile can thank away the debt, Thy valor puts upon us ? Still less could Fielding h ive anticipated that, in the nineteenth century, the reply of the little " tGeneral," who boasts of having pressed the lips of halt a million ladies in America, would have been before the court of Queen Victoria, in substance that ot his own hero:? I ask not kingdoms?I can conquer these ; I a*k not money?money I've enough : If ttiis he culled a debt, take rny receipt in full. I ask but this?to sun myself in Huncamunca's eyes ! On Friday se'nnight, Mr. 1'. T. Birnum, the American gentleman who acts as guardian to Tom Thumb, received die commands of Queen Victoria to Attend at Buckingham Palace wiih Ins protege. They were received in the Picture Gallery?a magnificent apartment, filled with some ot the choicest productions of ancient and modern art. The Queen, Prince Albert, the Duchess of Kent, and a large party ol the nobility, were standing at the farther end of the room, when the doors were thrown open, and the " General " entered, followed by his guardian and the Lord in Waiting. The moment the tiny man of fifteen pounds weight, walking erect and unembarrassed, handsome as ('lipid and graceful as Apollo, was perceived toddling along, there was a general titter in the royal ciicle, which broke out into a general burst of laughter when the " General," in his easy, familiar style, exclaimed, firmly hut respectfully, " Good evening, ladies and gentlemen!" The Queen then took him by toe hand, led hint about the gallery, and asked him many questions, livery answer elicited a smile from her Majesty. The General told her that he liked the Picture Gallery " lirst ru'e;" that it was very fine, and that he came over on purpose to see her Majesty. During this dialogue the Queen's face was suffused with laughter. .She then sent the Lord in Waiting for some ban fiottt, which ,she gave hint with her own h inds. The General then proceeded to display his varied acquirements before the royal circle? treating them to his personation of Napoleon, the statues, \'e., and the cars ot KngUnd's Queen, on whose empire the sun n ver sets, hoard, lor the lirst time, that genuine specimen of nigger lyries, "Miss Lucy Long," sung by this petit vocalist! Tli effect was ludicrous in the high place. Prince Albert was also delighted with the " General," and having examined Ins legs, waist, and head, expressed himself pleased with Ills strong, a ill wellkmt frame. The General and his guardian. Mr. Marnmn, after rein lining "i hour and a quarter in tint royal presence, withdrew, having received n hand-mine douceur from the lord in waiting. i Friday, the "( teii'-rul," accompanied by Mr. flrmum, waited i>y command, upon tint Queen Imw i-'cr, where a party of about thirty of the nobility, including a consuderahle number of ladies, were ass-mbleil The Dowager Queen appeared 11- mtn U charmed at ins Intle fellow's ease and pleasantry, a: was the Royal circle at liuckinghant Palace. <bc t,,?k him by the hand, and having aaked m iny qU"-tion- plied him in a little chair near herself, in order that slu- might be able the more freely to commune ite w uh hint As a mark <>t fo r resjieet, she announced 10 him her intention of presenting him with a gold watch and chain, which should correspond in ize to himself', and on which the nam;- of the donor would appear, as well as the object of the pp Mentation. The "General" and his guardian remained an hour with the Dowager Quern and her friends, and on taking leave, niter the presentation of a handsome doiieenr, were informed by the lord in waiting, that they would he sent for when the watch w is ready. On Monday, Her Majesty, Queen V i''torin,again sent for the " General" an 1 Mr. Ilarimm, the object being that the royal children should have in opportunity of seeing the prodigy which had excited sueli a sensation in both hemisphere*. Ib-aidc* her M.ipv ty ami the members tit the royal family, the Qtleeu of the llelgians md several foreigner- I i distinction were present. As on the former occasion, the " t leneral" amtiserl the romp my with hi varied power , which lie terminated by dancing a hornpipe and -1r>iginir several songs, to the no small a mil a inent <>| itc I'rincc of Wall's and the Princesho) >1 I he Queen, as at the first presentatio", 11 ighed heurtily nt the point and rhiewdncss of !i, answers, interspersed as they were with somo I touches ol genuine Yankee humor. These transit- 1 iHiitic MKtHS, which the euia of royally never, in all probably, heard before, appeared to tickle her Majesty's fancy amazingly. If ennui can ever the inmate of a palace, the Queen evidently th'.nks the drolleries ol Tom Thumb an effectual aut'.dote. Her Majesty nreseuted hiin with an elegant souvenir, madu of mother of pearl, and magnificently niounted with gold and precious stoues. Oil one side apj?ear the letters V. R., surmounted with a gold crown; on the other, 11 jwers in enamel mid rubies; the largest and most beautiful Hower in the touvenir is in the centre, and is called " Forget me not." In addition to tiiis royal gift, the Queen presented the "General" with a beautilulgold pencil, having Tom Thumb's initials and arms engraved on the emerald at the top. At the close of the intetview, her Majesty expressed lierselt warmly relative to the satisfaction which she had derived from the visit. Indeed, the "General" is such a favorite at thu palace, that he will, no doubt, be a frequent visiter there, lie was dressed in it lull court suit, with sword, bag, wig, Arc. Her Majesty expressed to Mr. Barnum her hope, that he would not allow the physical and in trllectuul powers 01 nis protege 10 oe iu.irU n?i? heavily or continuously; and she received that gentleman's assurance in the affirmative with evident satisfaction?a proof of the warm and lively interest which she takes in the" General's" welfare. Ilis Grace the Duke of Wellington, who has a taste for what is novel and unique, culled upon the "General" on the afternoon of Monday, at the Egyptian-hall, who, at the time, was in his full military dress, musing, u la Napoleon, llis guardian, Mr. Rarntiin, asked him the subject ot his meditation. "The loss of the Rattle of Waterloo," was the apt reply. The greatest soldier of this or any other agu then took the "General" of twenty-five inches altitude, into his arms, and the questions which his gtace put were answered with promptness Hnd intelligence. In a pecuniary point of view, as a mere exhibition, Tom Tliuiiih is netting J?f80 a week in the metropolis of England, a sum which must soon literally make him "worth his own weight in gold"?a common expression, which the bulk of mankind are destined to realize in its figurative applications only. Ireland. Repeat. Association.?The weekly meeting of the National Repeal Association tool; place on Monday Match 18th, 111 the Conciliation Ilall, Dublin. A letter was read from Lord French, who asserted that the fisheries of Ireland were in a declining state, and alluded to the distress existing in Galwav. effects which he attributed to the union. Two loiters were read front Mr. O'Connell, in one of which lie announced his intention to be in Dublin <n a few days; and thus described the new Irish Registration Ifi 11 about to be brought in by Governments?"The bill to extinguish tne county franchise in Ireland was announced by another name by Sir James Graham last night. It is, 1 understand, founded on the poor-rate valuation us to amount, hut on the Chandos clause as to principle. 1 have had this information from a quarter of such authority as to induce me to believe it. The account 1 have got of the hill will, if accurate, make it one of the most virulent instruments to take away from the Catholic people of Ireland all control over the socalled Irish representatives. We shall have it in print before Easter. The greatest mischief of it, a mischief indicative of insanity in its contrivers, is, that it will render the poor-rates infinitely more detested than they are at present, which, indeed, might have been considered difficult. I do think this bill will convert some of the best men amongst the Irish Whigs in Kepealets." Mr. Smith O'Brien announced that the lte|>eal rent received for the week amounted to ?601 5s. At the meeting on the 25lh, Mr. E. W. Costello was in the chair. Among the correspondence was a letter from Mr. O'Connell, which was ordered to he inserted on the minutes. Mr O'Connell wrote under an erroneous impression that lie was to attend the Liverpool meeting on Friday (asat first arranged) instead ot Thursday ; his determination, therefore, was to attend the house on Thursday evening, when Lord Elliot was to bring in his Franchise Extinction Bill, Acc.; and lie promised to leave Liverpool on Saturday, to arienu tne next mceiiuc ui mr lunutiaiiuu. mi. O'Connell. after some allusions to his visit to England, and its effects, proceeds as follows:?" I cannot conclude without observing that, on the one hand, it is impossible for the Irish people ever again to confound the English nation with the English government; the first, the English nation, nave shown themselves worthy of our confidence and gratitude?the government deserves our moat unmitigated resentment: so, on the other hnao, the powers of legislation are in the control of our eremies, whilst good wishes and kind words are nil that remain to our friends." Mr. O'Connki.i.'s Oration.?A grand banquet in honor of the Liberator and his co-conspirntors is to take place at Cork, on Easter Monday, April 8th, on which occasion VV. S. O'Brien. Esq , will preside It is expected to he u grand demonstration. A public entertainment to Mr. O'Connell, upon a splendid scale, is likely to take place at Dublin 011 Wednesday, April 10th. Mr. O'CoNNKt.r,.?Every arrangement has been mude for the appeal to the House of Lords ; and Sir Thomas Wilde, Mr. Kelly, and Mr. Sergeant Murphy are retained for the traversers. There was some little delay about allowing the usual licence for these Queen's Counsel to appear for Mr. O'Connell, buj all this is now concluded. O'CoNNKt.t, Banqitkts.?A number of public demonstrations in favor of Mr. O'Connell have taken place in England, and London having taken the lead, was followed by Liverpool, Birmingham, and Coventry, at each of which places Mr. O'Connell attended personally, to proclaim the gross injustice of the late trial. The following report of the Covent Harden banquet will give our it aders a pretty accurate idea til the character of these meetings. The Chairman, in proposing the health of the Queen, adverted to the wish of Sir I!, feel that her Majesty might visit Ireland, as implying a foal libel against the Irish people, and said that the Queen was prevented from visiting Ireland hy the same faction which, in lstll), prevented King William from partaking of the hospitality of the citizens of London, and that solely because Ministers did not dare to show their faces amongst a people whose origin, whose language, and whose religion they Imd so scandalously traduced and insulted. (Immense cheers.) This, and the usual loyal toasts having been drunk, the Chairman said lie now rose to propose " Health and long life to Daniel O'Connell. ' The toast was received with most immense cheers, the whole audience rising cn masse, waving their handkerchiefs tor several minutes, and the cheering was renewed again and again. Mr. O'Connkt.t, rose to return thanks. he declared himself unmanned hy the overpowering kindness of his reception, exclaiming that the dungeon had no terrors for him, that even the rack or the scaffold could not impress him with such sensations as those produced by the awful magnificence of the scene. They sympathized with him because they loved justice, and hated judicial partiality; because he was the victim of injustice. They convinced him of the sympathy of Lngland lor Ireland ; they had shown hi in that England and Ire I ind were bora lo be united in aneeuon ana interest against the world, and to h ive no enemies liul (lie en'iiiies of each other. (Loud cheers.) Tliey had convicted him of no crime known to or defined hy the law, but of u crime spelled out by the judges Iroin the law books?of nn offence which h judge imagined in his dreams, and for which be made the public suffer when he mw.ikened?a monster indictment?a sort of legal Frankem-tein, having nothing but some monstrous resemblance of the attributes of law and justice, ((treat cheering ) Mr. u'Gonnell then, at great length, adverted to the circumstances ol the trial, charging the law oflicets of the crown with all the trickery and chicanery of nn ' )ld ilailey practitioner, and observing 11' tic charge of the judge, that no otic had conic forward to defend it, lor it was utterly indefensible, and without a parallel since the days of Scruggs and Jefferies. They saw how lie was coaxing the judge to pass a lenient sentence unon him. (Much laughter ) lie eulogized the Lnghsli lor their love of fair piny, observing that there was no synonymous word in any other language, and proceeded to say, that, whatever sentence was pisserl upon him, he was ready lor it, for he there procl timed, in a voice which would be carried on the wings >.f the wind to every corner of the civilized wotld, that the proceedings against htm were not a lair trial, but a loul and dishonest persecution. (hear, hear.) He, therefore, proclaimed Ins utter scorn and defiance of the tyrants who conducted those proceedings. (Cheers) The lion, and learned gentleman proceeded to explain and justify Ins motives lor calling the repeal meetings, and sat down amidst the loudest cheering. The Karl id Shrewsbury, in proposing the next, toast, " The I'cople," described the cause of Ireland as that of justice, humanity, and opposition to oppression, and spoke in the highest terms of Mr. O'Contiell as the liberator of the country. (Vehement cheering ) The meeting was afterwards addressed by the Hon C. Langdule, Lord Camoys, Sir R Bulkeley, the lion. II Berkeley, Mr. M. J. O'Connell, Mr Gishorne, Mr. Sergeant Murphy, and Mr fhnilley \ i?rr ro (I'C is>Ft,i. and tits KaMti.Y.?My friend Riernatzky gave me. before I left Paris, a letti r ol introduction to Mr. Jirfm O'Connell, and I hoped through htm to become acquainted with his I ither Hr Gray introduced nie to him at Athlone. I left my card at his house in Ihthlin, full had no other opportunity of improving my acquaintance with 1,ril. I felt, indeed, liow necessary it wa9 lor him * be circumspect in his " receptionb" ol' strangers, and 1 resigned all hope of personal knowledge of O'Connell. I was, fortunately, mistaken. Through Mr Fitzpatrick, the intimate friend of O'Connell, I obtained the privilege of dining at the table of the Irish patriot, and enioyuig his converse and that of his family, more than once. Sir Robert Peel's speech, oil motion of Mr. O'Brien, appeared in the Dublin papers the day before 1 dined at ihe house of Mr. O'Connell, and he had made a speech in answer to it at the Repeal Association that very day. Mr. Fitzpatriek had told me to come half an hour before dinner time. When 1 gave my name I was told that he was asleep, and was forthwith ushered into the drawing room, where I found Mrs. French, O'Connell's eldest daughter, and Mrs. Morgan O'Connell; the former was in mourning for the deuth of her husband; she was pale, but her features, and especially her eyes, were full of spirit. Mrs. Morgan O'Connell is a fine Connatight woman. What must I say of our conversations! Have I any right to speak of them ! 1 liave no excuse in me ceienruy 01 meir great relative, to draw the light of publicity upon these ladies. 1 shall, therefore, only say, that the me beamed with intellect and the other with beauty and cordiality. Daniel O'Connell, jun. soon came ; he is a fine young man, who has pursued his studies under his father's superintendence, and last of all came O'Connell, h<s two eldest sons, Morgan and John, and Mr. Fitzpatrick. O'Connell wore a green coat with a bluck collar, and over that a blue cloak, which he kept on at dinner-time. He hegged me to excuse his not taking it oil", having the habit ol keeping himself thus wrapped up after he had spoken in public. After greetings and compliments had passed, he kissed his daughter and daughter-in-law and sat down in the circle.? That he was the centre to which all eyes were turned, may be easily uaderstood. And, indeed, without either his name or his acts, O'Coanell is a man to be, of himself, the centre of any society. He sat there a Colossus, or a statue of Jupiter, dominating all. There were the signs of exhaustion in his countenance, but this did not prevent spirit starting from his eyes and humor playing about his mouth. Speaking little himself, lie encouraged others with cordiality and cheerful smiles. Dinner soon came: O'Connell sat at the head of the table, Mr. MorgOU (>'Connell at the foot; Mrs. French sat on the right of bet father, and Mrs. Morgan on the left, and at either ?ide_ the guests and other members ot the family. lietore we sat down Mr. O'Gonnell said k abort grace. It was Friday, and therefore no meat wits brought to the table. There was everything else in abundance, the beat wine and the freshest fruits. During dinner, O'Connell wus ulways the leader of the conversation, though he spoke little, and only to his children and his guests, to invite them to partake ot this and that dish, and such and sucli a wine. The greutest silence prevailed during the whole dinner lime, and at times I felt a certain uneasiness set/.e ine, such as 1 had not for a long time before had, and which brought back to my tecollection my days of boyhood. Alter dessert, O'Connell's grandchildren came in, and I believe, if he had a dozen, that he had sixty of them. They each gave their grandfather a kiss. He then took his daughter's hand in his for a short time: he gave his other hand to his daughter-in-law, and thus sat hand in hand with them. There was something solemn in this, which one would not have expected at a moment when the giant mind was relaxed. When the dinner was over O'Connell said grace, again kissed his grandchildren, and the laities men leu inc room wnu uinn. me wIioIp dinner lud quite the character of a patriarchal tamily scene, and inspired me with more and more veneration font man who became greater, in my eyes, every day I remained in Ireland. The conversation did not get quite free even alter dinner, and I perceived it was necessary for O'Connell to set hisown tongue going in order to loosen those of his friends. None of his sons spoke save young Dan, just returned from travel. I had an opportunity, however, of observing to Mr. O'Connell that in Germany |we were all Unionists, whilst the Irish were Separatists. We clamoured for an Union, and your efforts are to dissolve one. 1 was then obliged to explain, and to show the difference between Ireland and Germany, Germany having much that Ireland wants, and Ireland possessing much which Germany Ims not. Germany has provincial institutions, Ireland imperial institutions, which, without the suitport of the provincial ones, are hut a misfortune.? Ireland might learn much from Germany, and Germany would find much to better her condition in England and Ireland. This littie episode brought some life into the conversation. I saw that this sketch and the example taken Irom Germany was new to him. This was all that 1 had the opportunity of remarking. Tea was then served in the drawing-room, whilst O'Connell retired tohisstudy and did not again appear. This is his daily habit, and shows the patriarchal fear in which he is held by his children and grand-children. They see him seldom, except working for the good of Ireland, and they are young enough to know him only as a . 1 .i_.. 1:1 ? ?? I?I | i i grcai IIIHU Ullll me UUCruiui Ul iinnun. i i,<rmu thut O'Connell was the gayest companion in the world, and would amuse a whole company liy lus spirit, fan, and humor. This can the more easily be understood, us lie, being the soul of all, must naturally communicate his feelings to all around him. I dined again yesterday with O'Connell. He was i|uite a dillerent man from when I was there before. At dinner he was quite active, and did honor to the viands and to the wine. The conversation was friendly, and on general topics ; hut when the ladies and the child en left the diningroom, the conversation took h severer turn. The principal topic was Repeal; it is a subject ever new and ever nucleating in Ireland. Mr. Fitzpatrick, one of the guests, said that sending a petition for Repeal to the Parliament in London, was tantamount to a tacit recognition ol the supremacy of the English parliament. O'Connell answered, if he could hope to bring on Repeal by such means, he would not prevent that petition from being presented. Right was on the side of Ireland, and power on the side of England ; and if Ireland had once the power of ruling itself, a mere matter o form would not stand in its way, nor prejudice its right. One of the guests then remarked, how difficult it would !> to bring England to a compromise. O'Connell answered, that the emancipation in 1S29, even to the last motion ol its passing, was so improbable, that no thins i? KngUud's conduct to Irelund could be despaired of as improbable. lie then spoke of his own plans, and said that the way in which new epochs were founded upon the history of nations, was without precedent. The Magna Charts had been obtained by unconstitutional means, and so had the foundation of the Orange and Hanoverian dynasties. Such new regulations were themselves a precedent; if* they wete founded upon necessity, anil the state of circumstances. John O'Connell then brought the conversation upon the Dublin press, and com lained that they did not, like the London press, make the private affairs and acts of the national meetings the subject for leading articles O'Connell agreed that the.-e journals were very unimportant, and that there was only one of the journals which had really well writen articles. ] wondered at these complaints, hut much more so when I found out that O'Connell, in spite of his power, left the Dublin press to its entire freedom. There wu? another remark which astonished nic much. O'Connell said that Peel's do nothing policy was the very best for him. All that Peel could do would only do harm to Knglnnd, and I was for a long time astonished at having heard Iiirn speak so clearly and simply. John O'Connell gave his father a feast yesterday, to winch I had ilie honor of an invitation. I repuce 1 have had an opportunity of observing Mr. Daniel O'Connell in another point of view. The Irish have an admirable custom, in summer, of entertaining their company as inueli as possible in the open air. They are poetical people, and feel chat naiure is miflictently beautiful to set off tlie most splendid least. John O'Connell had chosen Dalkey Island for that purpose. This island is situated at the southernmost extremity of Dublin Hay; its position is very beautiful; the island itself is a steep rock, upon which only a scanty herbage grows. A Mailello tower, a single house, and the'ruins of an old chapei, (where in Ireland is there a plac e without ruins'!) are the only signs to show that the island is not uninhabited ? The tower and signal house art Kuglish, but the UI./I riiiiia nr.. I,;_l, 'IU... I ..... very inviting, and 1 preferred going by land t<? the point opposite D.ilkcv Island, whilst part ol the company, with Mr. O'Connell, were tngo 111 a boat front King town; lint sca-stcknean taught them better, and they came to u resolution to give up the island, which required so unfriendly 11 passage ; therefore, when ! eatne to the railway station at Kingstown, I learnt, from a servant of Mr. O'Gonnell's, that the guests who had gone hy ttrru firma find changed the plan ot campaign, and that we were to ussemble at lite cottage of a Dr. Mac Donald. We lost nothing by the change ; I knew this cott-ige well; it was one of my favorite resorts. There is a splendid sea view. In order to reach tins cottage, one must pass over tin* enpe which separates Dublin Day trom the sea. At the extremity of this point there is u will which has stone step* leading up to its lop. t'n one side of th? e steps is a he,mi if ill view of Dalkey l-land, Kingstown, and Dublin Day ; and on the oilier one sees Killiney Day. Dr. Mac Donald'scottage is sita it' ll in a position which commands the timet beautiful view. Iii front is the sea, stretching in 11 semicircle, and beginning almost at our feet; to the right, wild and s'eep locks, against which the waves break. Above these are Killiney Ilills, which seem to give 1 In* hand to those of the county W irklow Three or four chains of mountains, one over the other, and a tongue of land, stretching out into the sea like a confused mw? of rocks heaped to Esther, confine a quiet, luxuriant, and blossoming valley of several inileB extent. I never aaw such contrast of color so beautifully blended, and it one were suddenly transported there by magic on a summer's evening, one would imagine oneaelf in the geniat clime of the South, insteud of being in Northern Ireland. When I arrived ut the rendezvous, the company had already assembled There aermed to be a general dread of sea-sickness. The gentlemen read the papers, ami the ladies remained outside resting themselves This cottage was not such a musty roomless country house its there is generally in Ireland. A table was laid the whole length of the room from one end to the other; the floor was plaster and stone, and the ceiling, beams and laths. The table was laid with cold viands; and in a corner there was another table, on which coats, shawls, hats, umbrellas, and parasols, were placed. The company consisted ot U'Connelt's whole family, sons, daughters, brothers-inlaw, and grandcnildren; ThoinuB Steele; Mr. and Mrs. Fttxpatrick ; Mrs. A , and myself. Mr. Fitspatnck proposed a walk before dining, and I voted for the proposition. It was also adopted oy a minority of those present; and they immediately set forth, to my regret. My sense of duty did not peimit me to remain, although t c majority was more interesting to me than the minority ; hut at dinner-time we all assembled together again. I think in this world there is nothing so unfortunate us to have a had-tomarh. All of the eueste. and indeed the Irish in general, have 110 reason to complain in this respect. All O'Connell's friends and kinsmen Httached the bottle with great ussiduity, hut 1 was obliged to act teetotaller. Alter dinner, Tom Steele stood un and made, with comic pathos, a speech which tilled nie with some anxiety He said neither more nor less than that we were undei a great ilelution, that we might think we were in a cottage on the mainland, but that in reality and truth, we were that blessed moment 111 the island of Dilkey. liverv one laughed, but I was in some perplexity to know what the worthy Tom meant, till a neighbor explained the riddle to me. Defore the devolution of '1W, Dalkey island was renowned fur its king. Once every year all Dublin issued lortli to the island to choose u king thereof. The monarch was of the same kind as the jolly king of Ivetot in France. The deepest drinkers were the primest heroes, and first dignitaries Unhappy Ireland !? 1 here came a time when even this innocent joke became a terror to the rulers of Ireland, and a source of persecution lor her sons. It was a national fete, and it was quite enough, 111 order to make it joyous for the patriot, that it should be susp'cious to the oppressor; the Irish who on Dulkey shore cried ' Long live the King of Dalkey,' tilled the castle with alarm ; the celebration was treasonable, and therefore was highly prized. Tom Steele's 8|ieech had no other object than to resuscitate this anniversary, and for this reason he. informed 119 that our terra firmu cottage whs positively 011 Dalkey Island. All agreed with him, and while t)w< />ir>.|iliwOin<>?u uv,.l lin-.l ..... tliu tion took i Lice. It fell upon Mr. lutzpaltick, who, on the snot, and without much ceremony, was immediately proclaimed king. All his subject* drank to his health, in answer whereto he spoke a long and beautiful address, just as if he had been born king of Prussia or France. It was easy to see that kingship was not so awful a burthen, though the bearer strove to make it appear of a certain weight. At last he said?I must name a prime minister to manage affairs of state, and he named Dan O'Connell to the [lost; we drank approbation, and good luck to the choice. O'Connell rose and returned a short speech of thunkH, and straight elevated Tom Steele to the office of Chancellor, he heing avowedly most learned in the law. Tom Steele then returned thanks in another siieech, and declared his intention of administering law and equity us badly as he possibly could, as was the duty of a legitimate lord chancellor Then O'Connell appointed a court fool, a lord of the bedchamber, naming for the latter place u young man who spent eighteen hours out of the twenty-foui in bed, and devoted the remaining six to his pipe. I had the honor of being appointed home secretary, by right of my being a foreigner, and I declared, in gratitude, my fitness for the place, being in eight days about to quit the shores of Ireland. The war minister was a lady who certainly had a whole park of artillery in her eyes, and another dame was appointed commandrr-in chief ot the army. The wildest young devil amongst O'Connell's grandchildren was named master of the ceremonies, and the most taciturn and quiet young man in the company, who had not a word to say, was appointed speaker of the House ol Commons ; hut still water runs deep, and the new speaker made a most an:.muriate sueech. hem" in the following terms: " Mum is the word "' There reigned the most beautiful and indescribable fun and jolitv, that it is possible to conceive ; man and wife, old and young, grandfather and grandchild, all mingled and playing gaily together It is easy to conceive ihat the English, who amuse themselves, as Froissart says, tnmJt tristcmrvt, could not coniprenend this or render it compatible with the seriousness of Itfe. For an Englishman to have seen O'Connell at such a mono nt, would have begotten in him the conclusion that there was no earnestness in the patriot. A Frenchman might understand his gaiety, ?r even a German, hut an Englishman could only understand it in a comedian ; and such is ?he character which the English bestow upon O'Connell. lie lias shown himself ihus once or twice in London, and this lias sufficed to obtain for him such a false and hypocritical character there. There could not he a lovelier nor more sunshiny day than this fete on Dalkcy cliffs ; the little cabin, with the old Irish Tltor mi hisjovbility, was sufficiently poetic, and a pair of black eves, of which I shall say no more, rendered it more poetic still. The ladies at length retired, the gentlemen clustered together, and a solid political conversation began to flow, of which I have only two recollections. One was a panegyric by O'Connell on Father Matin w, as the best orator lie knew, lull of simplicity, bievity, discretion, poetic language, striking metaphor, without repetition, alike impressive on young and old. I could not hut ask O'Connell why, whan he spoke of European sympathies for Ireland, he mentioned Spain and France, but never Germany ; he answered that Germany lay far off, and since 1832 h id shown no symptoms of liberal ideas J flatter myself ihat I undeceived him in that respect. ?Ire and, by J. Vennty, a German Music and the Drama. The events in the musical and theatrical world since our last have been of an interesting character. The Italian Ope?, at her Majesty's The.itre, opened on the 9th ult , with Donizetti's Adeha, which failed in the beginning nl 1M43. < In this occasion it was a substitution for Harold's Znmpa, the performance ot which wits postponed in consequence of the illness of Fornasari in Paris. In Adelia, a new tenor, named Corelh, appeared, with fair promise of success. In the following week the management made a sad mistake hy producing Zampa, with Signer Felice instead of Fornasari; the consequence of which was that the opera was a complete failure. The first great triumph of ihe season was achieved last week hy Mademoiselle Favnnti, an English vocalist, whose real name is Miss Fdwards, who made her debut in La Cenerentole. She was exceedingly successful. " Never," say the critics, " was any thing so beautif ! since the days of Malihran, heard within the walls of the opera house." This extraordinary singer unite* three complete and perfect voices, comprehending thr contralto, mtzzo nap ?no, and soprano without a weak note in the whole of this astonishing compass. She is said to resemble Catalini in beauty as well as voice. Her subsequent performances have confirmed the impressions at first created. Fornasari is laboring under severe illness, from water in the chest. Tamburmi has been sent for. A new ballet graced the opening of the Opera House, called La Esmeralda, a clever ada|>tation of a few points in Victor Hugo's Notre Dame de Paris most available for pantoii iniie representation. Carlotta Oris i personates Fsmeralda. The music, hy Signor Pugni, is described as very superior to ilie ordinary strains of the ballet. Cerilo commences an engagement in May next, at Iter M ijesty's Theatre Moris Duprez, the great French singer, lots been performing with decided success at Dmry Lane, in the two characters of Arnold, in Oillatune Tell, and Ferdinand, in Donizetti's Favourite. As it singer and actor he is equally eminent : no vocalist resembles him in the extent of his range of pure tenor notes?none with whom the use of the fal; setto is so little required. Country theatricals requite little notice. Mr (*. Matthews and Madame Vcstris have just closed an engagement in Liverpool. The Hnyal Liver has closed a not successful season, and tin1 manager is giving entertainments in the country. The Edinburgh Theatre Royal closed last week. IrI-ft then tricale arc dull.

Amongst the ptecea at present selected by the amateurs for representation, are the following: ' The Follies of a Day," " The Uaunte.l Inn," " Hombastes Furioso," "The Wreck Ashoie,'* "Comfortable Lodgings," and "The Rent Day.* Upon the two last occasions of Amateur perfoiniances, very handsome amounts were r.->i.ed for charitable purposes, in connection with the inetitu* tions within the borough.

The feuts of the Uisleys appear to the English public the more striking from the circumstance of there being nothing like them ever before seen on this side of the v, iter. They are purely American and they command the admiration of all classes, especially the higher classes of English society. ( pain.
