Mr. O'Connell was to have attended in the Dublin Court of Ex- 'chequer, on Tuesday, to argue against the legality of the proceedings in cases of writs of rebellion ; but a note was received from him by his "junior," Mr. Dickson, stating that the "frightful" accounts of the health of his son Maurice would prevent his attention to business.

Another tithe sale was attempted in the county of Wexford, on Wed- nesday week. The concourse that attended was immense, although the rain fell in torrents. The Sale was at the suite of the executor of the late Bishop of Ferns against Mr. Philip Tremble of Kilgibbon. A great quantity of valuable stock and several articles of household furni- tore were put Lip; but from the 7,000 persons in attendance no respond- ing voice issued, although property worth 411. was offered so low as one pettily.
