TO DOCTOR CANTWELL, ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOP OF MEATH, EX-DEAN OF THE ROYAL COL-LEGE OF MAYNOOTH. REV. SIR-I -have read lately in one of the newspapers of this city a letter pur- porting to be written by you, and another by a priest of the appropriate name of Savage, referring to that notorious con- vict Brian Seery. I can assure you, sir, these letters have given pain to every friend of peace and social order ; while they have added fuel to that flame that guides the footsteps of the midnight as- sassin ; they have convinced many, who heretofore were not willing to admit it, that there are to be found in this country, not only among the lower orders of the community but even amongthose who pro- fess to be ministers of the gospel, persons who would not hesitate to step forward &nbsp; &nbsp; and screen the assassin, by filling the public mind with prejudice and distrust against the administration of justice in this country. Your object in writing that letter was self-evi...

THE STATE OF IRELAND. (From the Times, 18th April.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 4 September 1846
' THE STATE OF IRELAND. (From the Times, \Qth April.) THE Minister will probably after last night's reiterated experience think that never statesman was cursed with so ob- stinate and impracticable a body of ma hgnants as the liish Repealers. It is not, however, within the walls of Par- liament that his chief difficulty exists. There is a foice in events which is 'stronger than faction, more convincing t)ian argument, more affecting than elo- quence, and such is the foice which is now baffling and paralyzing the Pre- mier. Ireland is starving. Her popula- tion aie plundering ships and stores. Pood can only be conveyed under strong escort. All who can are quitting her shores.1 Fortunate are they who can raise the means.

K. Horn's letter, which appeared in the issue of that paper (the Herald) of the 20th instant. Ihese reports were not-favourable to Mr. Horn's veracity-for one of the parties jocularly remarked, that Mr. H surely meant to convey his ideas in the byeword " That an lrishman is never peaceable but when he is fighting."
