The presentatiou of tb o magniücent addrees from Ireland to President Grant, throuRh Messrs. O'Connor Power and Parnell, members of Parliament, bas been doferrcd. It soems that, accordbig to etiquette, the resolutions will have to come t.brough the Britieh Minister at Washington, to the President. Au obaiacle bas beon fouud to tho auccess of tbo firat step in the wording of certain paris of the resolutions. One part cites that, " baving suffered tbrough sevou centuries of tyranny, the Iriüh people make their ereetings to the United ! Btatea and its President, etc." This cannot, it is contcudfd, be paescd bv without an act of i disrospect on the part of President Grant to Her Mí.jesty'8 represen tative. The resolution are magnificent evidences of art and taste, appeiring like a plato of the purest alabaster, inlaid with mosaic. They are at present in one of tho rooms at tho White House. GENERAL.

B&no waa elected orator All doubt are removed concerning the ideutity of the two traveliug conipauiona of Bots Tweed, vrhogave their namcs as " Hunt " and "Sanda" when the "oldman"was arrestod Ht Vigo. The twain have arrived in New York, and tli6y prove to hi, what they wero claimed to be at the time, Kichard Tweed and Wiiliam KiDg. We learn frora the New York papera that the steamer Colon, of the Pacific Mail Steamship line, on her last trip tookoutnearly a f uil cargo of Remington fire-arms, destined for varions pointe in Central and South America. Included was a large consignment for Mexico, all the combátante there appsaring to be deairous of flupplying thc-maclves. The number of weapons of al] sorts sent in that direction within the last few months only excites wonder as to wbat can be done with no many. The whaling bark Florence lias arrived a San Francisco from the Arctic ocoud, with 190 men on board, being a part of the crews of the Arctie whaling neet, twelve of which 8he reporta lost in the ice, with a portion of the crews. The remaining survivors have gone to Honolulú on the bark Thrco Brothers. The following is a liet of the abandoned vessel : Barks Oaward and Clara Bell, of San Francisco ; ships 8t. George and Marengo, and barks Corueliua Howard, James Allen and Java, of Now Bedford ; ebip Camilla and barkentine Joaephine, cf Boston ; bavk Acers Barne, or New London, and Hawaiian barks Deamond anrt Arctic. The veaselB had on board altogetker about 1,000 barrels of oil, besidea a large amount of whaleboue and ivory. It is the undivided opinión of every raaater that no hopo can be obtaitied of a rescue of the ellips. Of those who reroained on board, then, numbering between fifty and aiity, all are undoubtedly lost, ond carried away to the northeaat in the immense ico-pack wbich closed them in for miles around. FOKEIGN. The European news is decideilly warlike, and indicates unmiatakably the early preeipitation of active hostilities between Iiusaia and Turkey. Russla, has not been idle during tbe discaeaion of the armistice proposal. Quietly but rapidly she bas beeuengaged in gigantic proparaions for-the great atruggle. Arrangementa have been completed for maasing au army of 250,000 men npou the TürluHh frontier, the Itoumauian railway companics haviiig engagtd to fransport Ilusaian troops at tho rate of at least 25,000 daily. England ia bestimue lierself to bo in readinees for her part in the bloody business whenever that part shall havo been dcfiued by tho unfolding of eveuta. An autumnal neeeion of Parliament ia to be convencd; tho Government bas applied to the Lloyds for ships for the transportation of troops to tho Hediterranean ; aiul threo army corps have been ordered to be in readineas for tho voyago. A Loudou dispatch says: "AU Iiueaisns in Paria under the age of 40 have been ordered homo. The new KiiHsian ironclad Peter the Great is to leave Cronatadt immodiately for the MeíHterranean. Ku-Hia has iöBued a circular note announcing that, in the intereatH of humanity, she fcels bound to march troops iuto Bulgaria and Armenia. Tuero are 82,000 men at the camp of Bender, and 04,000 around Tiflis. Austria's Eaetern policy will conform to that of ltuaaia and Germany." A Belgbade digpatch of Oct. 21 says : "8erioua fightiug took place near Saitechar on Tuewday and Wedneaday. Ihe Turks are trying to foics their way to Paritchin, whence t!:oir march to Belgrade would only be interrupted by weak fortilications at Chupria." A London telegram slates that tli&BritiHh Cabinet, at ita meeting on Oct. 20, "dccided upon the policy of abstention, for tho present at least, and in thia policy tliey have tbe support of the prena and the people. This removes from the coneideration of the chances of the poace of Europe one of tho elementa which in Wedneaday's panic wbs cortaiuly reckonod upou to disturb it, in caso 1Í issia 'cionsed the Danube." Maxi officers of the English army have applied for permission to enter the Turkish service.. .:lt the wordt como to the woröt, and Bussia obtains no co-operatiou in her movements for the settlement of thö Eastern question, she will be preparod to play a pretty strocg "l'jne hand." Tho concentration of ten aimy corps uear tho f rontier has boen ordered. A Calcutta dispatch to the London Times states that prospecte for the crops in Bombay btcome daily more gloomy. The districts of Khanáaipk, Nassick, XhmendnnKgor, Poonah, Sholaporo, Kaludgi, and Dhiirmal, containing a population of nearly C.000,000, are tlireatened with eeveie diatrcBs.
