IRELAND. EXPECTED VISIT FROM THE QUEEN. Dublin, June 25. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 September 1856

EXPECTED VISIT FROM THE QUEEN". Dublin. June 15. The following very welcome intel ligence is given in the Daily Express of this morning, so circumstantially that there appears good reason for be lieving it to be well founded : . " We believe we are correct in stat ing that there is every probability of her Majesty visiting Ireland towards the latter «nd of August next. The occasion of the intended royal visit, so far as vre can learn, is a de sire on the part of her Majesty to take leave of the Irish militia, prior to its disembodiment in a grand military spectacle, on a scale surpassing any thing that has yet been attempted in this country. The Curragh, it is un derstood will be the scene of this dis play of our national arms ; and we further gather that, in order to give every possible effect to the royal re view, the .various regiments now sta tioned there will be reinforced by the battalion of the Scots Fusilier Guards, also by four troops of Horse Artillery, and several compani...

The Times, referring to the debate in the House of Lords last night, and to the disclosures made respecting the tyrannical conduct of the Government of Naples, asks how France and Eng land, who have the power to remedy these outrageous evils almost by an expression of their will, can justify their abstinence from intervention. The Daily News says the debate was eminently unsatisfactory, and accuses the English Government of dallying and trifling with the Italian question at a time when firmness and determi nation are essential. The harvest has begun in Austria. It is believed that, taking one proviene with another, there were will be bat a middling harvest in the Austrian em pire.
