Mr. Alphonso Carlin, a gentleman of this parish, who is fond of adventure, informs us that a few weeks since, w hen on a sea shore excursion, io wardsthe River Sabine, in company with two or three other persons, he captured a fish of a very extraordinary species. It w as of a flat shape, about 1 i A ct long, with a tail someihing like that of an ox ; about 18 feet in width wilh large fins, which ilused like wings, and a mouth of a curved shape about throe feel long! It had two spiral trunks or horns, one on each comer of the mouth. He savs after he had put a bullet in it, the monster flew at his boat, mouth wide open, and w i tit its grizzly horns protruding in front, its tail slashing the air and water, and iis lins playing on each side, it struck terror into his crew. I'y n niero miracle he escaped hy fending off with tin oar, us n broadside whs lired down ils throat! After inui'h ditlieulty it was raptured mid an indlTcc tual attempt wad made by five men to haul hint ashore. He thinks it must have weighed upvTaids of 8,000 lbs. . , Iuitariiiul Foreign News.

'J'he Woutarf moetiii had been appointed to lake place on the 7ih ult., but in the afternoon of that day a proclamation was issued by the government au thorities forbidding it to be held. Immediately thereupon another proclamation was issued by O'Conndl recommending to the Irish people ti obey the government proclamation, lest by diso bedience they might givtr a - pretext for violent measures by government; but in cotisequeuce of the lateness of the hour at which these proclama Hons wero issued, a very considerable gathering took place, at Cloutarf, which was dispersed by the military .: . .No blood was shed, bin it caused a level iah excitement., i .... , The urrest of O'Connell took place on the 11th. 'The particulars nre thus given in an extra from the office of thn N.V. Heiald: Mr O'Connell, and his son, M. J. O'Connell. wero arrested, on Saturday, Oct. 11, upon warrants issued by Judrre Ilurton, on information sworn before him on the day previous. An announcement to this e fleet having been made in the Dublin livening M.ail, of the preceedino- evening, very great excitement was caus ed, ami hundreds were assembled about the head police olliee, making anxious in quiries. 1 he parlies on duty there, how ever, replied that they knew nothing on the subject. Mr. O'Connell remained at his house, in Merrion Square, and, having received the sacrament, was waited upon, nt lulf past nine, by Mr. Kemmiss, the crown solicitor, who informed him thai informa tions had been lodged and warrants issued aoainst him and his son, who was at tho same time with him; anil requested lo know at what hour he would attend, with bail, al Judge Button's chambers. The hour fixed was three o'clock ; and, short ly before that lime, Mr. O'Connell, Mr. John O'Connell, with Mr, Cornelius Mc l.oughlin and Mr. Jeremiah Dunne, arri ved at Judge llnrton's house. A few oth er friends subsequently arrived ; but tins proceedings were altogether of a very pri vate nature. Mr. O'Counrll having called on the cmwii solicitor for copies of the informa tions, which were refused, his solicitor delivtred in a demand to be supplied wilh the same. Mr. O'Connell then requested to see the information on which the war rant was issued; and, having coolly read il over, said he was ready to give the bail required, and entered into recoonizances, himself injCi.O'lO. and Mr. M'l.auohlin and .Mr. bunno in X3iH each, to answer a charge of e onsjiirary and misdemeanor on the fust day of term. Mr. John O' Connell having time the same (ihu same gentleman being bail in both cases,) the crown solicitor oavti to cacli llie conies nf the information required, which he siiitThe could not before, as the bail was not then perlected. The parties then retired. . Mr. O'Cotiiiell immediately caused th fullowiug address to be issued : ".TO THE PEOPLE OF IIJELANI). "Beloved fellow countrymen?
