A meeting of the tenantry on Colonel Greville's Coronary estate in this county was held at M'Breen's cross-roads, adjacent to the Coronary Police Station, on Tuesday last, 8th inst. Shortly after two o'clock, Mr. William MORROW, P.L.G., was called to the chair, and Mr. Patrick CUSACK, of Kilnacrew, was requested to act as secretary.

The chairman, on taking his seat, explained the object and nature of the meeting, which was, he said, for the purpose of adopting an address to Colonel Greville by his grateful tenantry on his Coronary estate, without his knowledge or that of his agent, deputy or bailiff, as he was certain that an appropriate address, coming as it would, from them spontaneously, without their prompting assistance of interference, or of any other person on their behalf, would be more acceptable, and appreciated by their excellent landlord, than if gotten up at the instance or suggestion of his agents or bailiff ; for it was a well known fact that the worst and most tyrannical landlords in the country -- and God knows there are too many of them (laughter, and that is true), could, through the instrumentality of their agents and bailiffs, get all their tenants to meet en masse, and adopt as many addresses to them as would fill a creel (laughter), through fear of being distrained and then ejected if they did not do so ; but this would not be done on Colonel Greville's estate, at least since he found out the oppression and tyranny of his late agent over them, and for which he dismissed him (cheers), and remedied the evils he perpetrated, as much as in him lay. Mr. Morrow then eulogised Colonel Greville for his fostering care and indulgence to them, and concluded by thanking the meeting for the honour conferred upon him in selecting him as their chairman (cheers).

Mr. P. CUSACK then addressed the meeting, and also returned thanks for having been appointed to the onerous office of secretary to the meeting, which he would not undertake, being unaccustomed to the discharge of its duties, were he not promised the able assistance of Mr. M. W. REDDY, who kindly attended the meeting from Cootehill for that purpose. The object of the meeting (said, Mr. Cusack) was of a two-fold nature, to assist in complimenting Col. Greville as a patriotic and independent Tenant Right M.P., and a good landlord, with the view and expectation that other neighbouring landlords might be induced to follow Col. Greville's example, and go and do likewise (cheers). Mr. Cusack then enumerated several benefits which Col. Greville conferred upon his tenants, amongst which were the forgiving them all arrears of rent which had accumulated during the years of famine, happily past, payment of poor rates, county cess, draining, &c., after which he resumed his seat amid cheers.

The first resolution was proposed by Mr. IRWIN, and seconded by Mr. John TACKNEY, which was to the effect, that the tenantry of the Coronary estate do present their landlord, Col. Greville, with a spontaneous and appropriate address for his kind and fostering care of them since the removal of their late agent, as they have since that period greatly improved in their social and moral condition, and when aided by their own industry, exertion, and self-reliance, they entertain sanguine hopes of ultimate success. The second resolution was proposed by Mr. Peter COONEY, and seconded by Mr. Thomas WHITE, which was in substance, that they hailed with pride and pleasure the return of their landlord to parliament for the county of Longford upon Tenant Right principles, as they conceive that Ireland cannot be either prosperous or happy, until the relations between landlord and tenant be settled and arranged by legislative enactment upon equitable principles. Mr. Reddy here addressed the meeting at great length on this subject, and during the delivery of his speech was much cheered by the meeting. The third resolution was proposed by Mr. John FRANCIS, and seconded by Mr. Patrick BRADY of Coronary, which eulogised Colonel Greville for his non-interference with his tenantry in the exercise of the elective franchise. Mr. Brady addressed the meeting in very eloquent terms upon this subject and Tenant Right. He also eulogised Col. Greville as a good landlord and a faithful and patriotic Tenant Right M.P. The address which was an echo of the resolutions then having been read, was adopted amid great cheering. It is a rather lengthy document which, together with Col. G's reply thereto (when obtained) shall be published in extenso. Thanks having been voted to the chairman and secretary, as well as to Mr. Reddy for his very efficient assistance, the meeting separated, cheering for Col. Greville and Tenant Right. We are precluded from giving more than a mere outline of the proceedings in consequence of the late hour at which the report arrived, and want of space.

FIRE IN ARVA. At half-past three o'clock on Saturday morning last a fire broke out at the rere(sic) of the premises occupied by Mr. Daniel BIGGER, which threatened at one time to consume one side of the street ; but owing to the exertions of Sub-Inspector M'CLINTOCK, and the men under his command, it was got under, but not until the whole of Mr. Bigger's office houses were consumed. To much credit cannot be given to Mr. M'Clintock and his men for their arduous and unceasing exertions on the occasion.
