The report of Lord Carlisle's appointment as Lord-Lieutenant of Ire- land has not been received with satisfaction by a portion of the press. Mr. Holman, as Secretary, meets with less favour; and the Freeman's Journal considers it offensive to the country that a stranger by birth and education is set over them, and an insult to the Irish Liberals, as implying their unfitness. Mr. Horsman's appointment also offends the Iriah clergy.
