The intelligence from Ireland is as pacific as it has

been throughout the week. The correspondent of the Times has some reports of serious dissensions among the Repealers, some of the more unruly being dis- posed to mutiny against Mr. O'Connell's " undisguised vacillation": but such rumours in such a quarter must be regarded with a cautious doubt. Others are less unlikely- " 1 learn this day, that the bills of indictment a,gainst Mr. O'Connell end the other traversers will, in all probability, be sent before the Grand Jury of the county of Dublin ; in which event the Petit Jury will be selected from the (Fend panel of the county, and their names called over on heavy penalties. It however, open to the Attorney-General to send the bills before either the city or the county Grand Jury; and the jurors empanelled to try the charges will, it is supposed, be selected from whichever panel the honourable and learned gentleman may select. " Mr. Joseph Sturge, of Birmingham, arrived in town a few days since, and has had several conferences with Mr. O'Connell. He left last night for Craw- fordsburn, on a visit to Mr. Sharman Crawford."

It is added, that Mr. Smith O'Brien has joined the confederation ; and the following " strange announcement" is copied from the Limerick Chronicle, " a channel through which very unexpected occurrences are sometimes first made public ' -

" There are some reports that the Remembrancer, Anthony Richard Blake, is about to join the Administration. He is known to be anxiously looking for some congenial employment in public matters ; and it is remarkable that he was

close conference with the late Attorney-General, the Right Honourable F. Blackburne, for a long time on Saturday, at his house in Merrion Square, within a few doors of that of O'Connell, andjust before that formidable person- age went forth to perfect bail at Mr. Justic Burton's." Lord De Grey is accused of a new blunder. The "Dublin Protes- tant Operative Association and Reformation Society " presented to him an address, congratulating him on the vigour displayed in the late pro- clamation and the prosecutions, and urging the necessity of extirpating Popery and " idolatry " in Ireland. Lord De Grey is said to have re- turned, through his Secretary, "his warm acknowledgment" for the thanks : thus conveyed ; but the official letter quoted only makes "his acknowledgment," without the " warm." Perhaps a still colder reply to the extremely party address would have shown more tact.
