An address from Mr. O'Connell to the People of Ireland,

on the late run on the Banks, has been published in the Dublin Evening Post. Mr. O'Connell says that, as Governor of the National Bank, be had

been requested to use his influence with the people to stop the run for gold. This he refused to do, being resolved that the perfect stability

of the bank should be tested and proved. Now, however, that the run had ceased, he felt it his duty to represent the folly of the panic. Of the perfect security offered by the joint-stock system he was convinced. The Provincial and the Agricultural Banks were amply able to discharge every demand upon them. With these banks he was not connected ; but of the National Bank, over which be presided, he could say as much. It was sheer insanity in the people to knock down the prices of commodities by their run for gold- " I instituted The National Bank merely to do good to the people of Ireland —I call on them to assist me to serve themselves. Every shilling of property I have in the world—all the property of my eldest son and his family— the property of my son-in-law—is involved as security for the notes of the National Bank, together with the property of all the other shareholders. The run has ceased, the demand is over. I now only ask the people to return to the tranquil enjoyment of those advantages which I sought to secure to the= by establishing the National Bank of Ireland." The circulation of the Agricultural Bank is stated not to have ex- ceeded 420,0001.; its paid-up capital being 27.5.0001. In several parts of the country, but especially in Cork, the run on the Bank still con- tinues, but has been readily met. Many gentlemen and tradesmen take the notes of the Agricultural as well as other banks for rent and goods. The run seems to have been originated by the Tories, for a political purpose. The Sligo Champion says- " We have no doubt that this run has been got up by the Tories. In this county the Tory landlords were the first to refuse the notes of the Agricultural and National Banks ; among the rest, the agent of Perceval had distinguished himself for the marked manner in which he refused the National notes ; how- ever, if the run was confined to poor Perceval, there would be but little to be apprehended. The run will, of course, be ruinous in its consequences. 'F here is absolutely nothing doing. Butter and oats have fallen 25 per cent., and no bidders."

On Monday the 14th instant, the Sheriff, accompanied by a large party of the military, dispossessed over twenty families on the lands of Crean, county of Limerick, part of the property of the Earl of Sand- wich, an absentee landlord, for non-tithes, 8rc. The scene was truly beart-rending. Over a hundred and twenty human beings, including the old and the young, widows and orphans, and even some tithe rtbds (u, by fiction of law, the enemies of an unjust impost are now styled), were ejected, and left at this most inclement season without shelter.— .Linterick Star.
