She sailed from Liverpool on the 25th; and, as tho Washington brought dates from that port only to the 20th, her news is full five days later. She has made the passage in fifteen days. The monster meeting at Dublin came off without disturbance, no interference having been made by the authorities. An address to France was adopted, as also a petition to the Queen of England for the repeal of the Union. On the next day, Smith O'Brien, Meaghers, and Mitchell, were arrested for sedition, and put under heavy bonds to await their trial on the 13th April. Great excitement existed in Dublin on account of the arrests. Scotland was becoming more quiet. Riots have ceased in England, and all was quiet. A number of failures have taken place on the continent. From Paris. - The financial measures of M. Garnier Pages have been all generally approved, and none more so than his last decree, creating public stores under the surveillance of the State, with the view of warranting the receipts to be negotiable for the specified value of the deposit in wares.

The following is the Paris news - On Wednesday, the Bank of Discount commenced its operations. On Monday, already 600 accounts were opened, and there are 800 demands on which replies will be given to-day. Discounts for about a million francs were made on Monday, and on Tuesday 1,200,000. This establishment will render great service to commerce, and has already exercised some influence on the restoration of confidence.

The precious metals have arrived in considerable quantities within the last day or two, and gold has fallen from ten to five per cent. premium. The price of bread has been reduced in Paris. The movement in Germany relieves Europe from the apprehension of a general war. There no longer exists a potent despotism, ready to crush France as a dangerous example to neighboring States. Havre, March 24. - Here ruin spreads around all the business houses in this commercial city.- Some eight or ten additional failures are reported. We regret exceedingly to announce that of M. Le Pierre. Several ships which have arrived here, have, without entering, been ordered to proceed to Liverpool. We have further advices from our Havre correspondent to the 23d, instant, by which we learn that there is nothing doing in cotton or other articles of import. Indeed, there is a total cessation of business, owing to the want of money and confidence, which has led to the suspension of almost every house in that place. Our correspondent adds that the entire city presents the most gloomy and distressing appearance. Insurrection in Lombardy. The electric Telegraph announces that the people of Lombardy, having no faith in the promises of the Emperor, have revolted at Milan. The fighting was going on between the people and military when the accounts left. The citizens had raised numerous barricades. The Viceroy had fled. Byhanne and Brescia had also revolted. A supplement to the "Resurgamento," of the 18th, states that the people, not satisfied with the promises of the Emperor to grant a new Constitution, have broken out into an insurrection and open resistance to the Government. Barricades had been raised in the streets, and, at the departure of the courier, fighting was going on between the troops and the people. The express announces the abdication of the king of Bavaria. There had been a fatal tumult at Munich. The students and tradesmen joined the police. Letters from Vienna have reached Liverpool to the 17th, instant, and are of the most gratifying descriptions. Hungary has been granted a Ministry of her own, and all cause of danger, as regarded that part of the empire, would seem to be removed. The whole country is said to be in a state of great enthusiasm and the steady confidence and the practical good sense of the people have been shown to i remarkable extent in the uninterrupted fulfillment of their mercantile and monetary obligations. All payments, it is said, are made most punctually, and the privilege to them for fourteen days, which had been granted, has not in any way been resorted to. All was quiet at Berlin on the 22d. The concessions granted by the King had been received with universal enthusiasm.

A republic has been proclaimed at Cracow, and four hundred political prisoners released. Fifteen thousand insurgents under arms. Republican principles constantly advancing in Germany, Denmark and Holland. The King of Bavaria had abdicated. A new cabinet has been appointed in Austria.

The Austrian troops were entirely defeated. The history of the present fortnight has witnessed the death of despotism in Western Europe. - Vienna has followed the example of Paris and, Metternich, like Guizot, has fled from the storm. He had fled; but the Emperor, more discreet than Louis Phillippe, remained - the popular monarch of a popular movement. This great event, more important than the French revolution, took place on the 13th. The people, guided by the heads of the learned bodies, presented a memorial, demanding from the Government the Liberty of the press and other organic reforms. The Council was sitting, but being unable to give a prompt reply, the deputation became impatient, entered the chamber, and an emute was the result. The soldiers fired on the people, several lives were lost; but, in the midst of the tumult, the Council demanded the dismissal of Metternich. "I have resigned," said he, entering the chamber at the moment. The reply was a doubtful compliment: "You have saved your country."
