THE FAMINE IN IRELAND
letter faom a gentleman of the
Quaker denomination in Dublin, to J.
Harvy, of this city, dated January 3d,
has been published. The writer and his
friends have visited several of the coun
ties in Ireland, with a view of observing
the condition of the peasattry. The
doscription given in the letter, of the suf
fering, of which, in the words of the
writer, they "now see the begining, but
of which no man sees the end," is fright
ful The writer says:
"In the parts of Mayo which I visited,
the failure is complete, and the destitu
tion of the cottier population is iota!.
They have nothing. The public works
do not employ one-qrarter of them.
There Is no other employment. The
wages of those who get work, about one
shiiling per day, are quite insufficient to
support a family at present prices.
They have been unable to buy their
usual supply of winter clothing, and on
the contrary have been forced by ni ant
to pawn any good clothes they had.
Their pigs are gone-the poultry are
eaten or sold-the very dogs have been
drowned, lest they should eat anything
that could support human life. I saw a
few pigs and fowls, and an occasional
dog with the farmers, but nothing in
comparison with former times. The
number of the destitute is greatly in
creased by the farm servants, who have
been almost invariably discharged on
accounts of the inability to their employ
ers to feed them, and by taylors, sho
m.kers and other ai tizans, who used to
work for the small farmers and the poor,
and who have now no employment."
These people subsists on turnips, sold
at a shilling a hundred weight, and dealt
out sparingly, by those who have them,
to make them last the longer.
"The natural result o0 insufficient and
unwholesome food is disease, especially
dysentery of the most aggravated char
acter, of which many are dying. -There
have also been many deaths from actual
starvation. The coroner living at
Ballina, gave us a list containing. twenty
three such within tie last month, most
ofthem within the last fortnight. There
are also many more en whom no inquest
i held. We passed a small burying
place at the time of an interment; it was
a young man who had been a farm ser
vant, and having been discharged, could
ind no one to take him in. He had been
promised admission into the work house,
but-died the previous day, of absolute
want of food--np inquest. On another
occasion we met a.3 oung man carrying
a-coffin, of this, unplaned deal boards.
lie told us that it -was for a woman,
whose remains had been kept eight days,
until'they begged the price of the coln?'
The sole. topic of. conversation in
Ireland is the famine which has fallin
upon the country. The resident gentry
.exert-themselves with great humanity to
mitigate the distress; their wives and
daughters ate seen dailly distributing
soup and meal, or cutiing out clothes to
be made up by poor women, but the
absentee, proprietors, with but a few ex
ceptions, lend, them no assistance. We
copy the following further particulars
from this letter. -
- "All religious and political dillerances
are for the present forgotten-like the
factions in a besieged city, the pressure
ofa common danger has united all parties
for a common object. The ministers
otallidenominations, and especially the
Church of England clergy, are actively
engaged in administering relief.-To
the latter the very poor chiefly look, and
the rector is sometimes the only resident
gentleman in the parish.
,Jh"The poor houses are crowded ; they
are almost all in debt ; under present
circumstances a new rate could not be
collected ;.and such is the state of their
credit, that I fear, unless the govern
ment provides funds, they will be una
ble even to feed the unfortunate beings
within the work house walls.
"I have heard statements tending to
prove that the bonds of natural affection
were loosening under the pressure of
want, but I expect that the instances are
rear. Husbands have deserted their
wives and families ; children have, in
some instances, turned out their parents
so beg ; and 'many parents refuse L.> re
ceived theia adult children who have left
them for the service of farmers or others.
Perhaps the most striking change of
feeling is shown by the treatment of the
dead and dying. Many are brought
into the work house when on the point
of death, in order to obtain a parish
coffin-The funerats are attended by
.few, there may be twenty or thirty,
whzen formerly there would have been
some hundreds. To one acquainted
with the character of our people, this
change must appear great indeed.
"Thtere is still corn in the yards of
the small farmers. They have paid no
rents and keep their corn to eat. They
are consuming it fast, and the best opins
ion I could obtain, estimated it as likely
to last at furthest only four months, and
then their destitution will be as complete
as that of the cottiers or Conacre-men,
excepting the very fe'a who have money
saved. I have no doubt many of the
latter will go to America. In the words
of one to whom I spoke, 'Every one
who can scrape up the money will go.'
"The emigration this year will certai
nly be enormous. rnelemenL as-is this
season they are going already. A ship
left Sligo just before Christmas, and in
stead of the sorrow usual *when parting
from their native country, there was
a doomed land. The country is in many
places becoming depopulated. They
are deserting their cabins, crowding into
the towns and cities, spreading them
selvesover our eastern countries, (where
the destitution is less,. because the people
have been accustomed to rely on wages
for their support,) and, when they can
beg the passage money, crossing over
into England and Scotland. Such ex
tensive mendicity is frightfully demor
alizing; but how can the unfortunate
people help it 1 If they stay at home
they must starve. From accounts I have
heard, I believe that many are preferring
the dreadful alternative, are ashamed to
make their wants known, and are actu
ally starving rather than beg.
"The small farmers are disheartened,
and in desparation on account of losses
and the great arrears of rent, they have
as yet made no preparation for culiva
ting their ground, and think that if they
cultivate it, it is rather for the landlord
than themselves. The usual gatherings
of compost have been neglected. To
manure their ground seemed to them
useless, as they had no potatoes to plant.
I think very few of them have corn suf
frcient for their own consumption and for
seed. The lime-kilns are not at work,
as they used to be, showing a diminished
breaJth of wheat sown, or at least a
diminution of manure. The lost time
may be partially redeemed by spring
sowing, but the loss of manure is incur
able. The land cannot obtain its usual
nourishment, and the result must be a
"I trust that eventual good will iesult
from this awful visitation of Providence,
unexampled in its severity in any civi
lized country, but we must first pass
through an amount of suffering, of which
we now see the beginning but of which
no man can see the end."
Quakerism and Odd Fellowship.
We understand that there is at present
considerable excitement among the
Friends in this city in relation to Odd
Fellowship. Several young friends have
become Odd Fellows, and it is question
ed whether they are liable to be expelled
from the meeting for so doing. For our
part we can se.e no more harm in joining
the Odd Fellows in than getting your
house insured in a mutual company.
The secrecy and decorations of the
Order we take to be the mere disguises
and appendages, useless or useful we
know not of the mutual insurance, which
is the all in all of it. We trust the diffi
culty among the Friends may be com
posed to the satisfaction of all parties.

Lone and Police.-The most singular
case which has come within the purview
of the police was told us this morning. It
seems that a youth had became ardently
attached to a beautiful young lady of
this city. As is common with most
pretty w-,men, she was disposed to be a
little coquettish, and to induce her to
favor his suit over the claims of half a
dozen lovers, he in the most gallant
style and becoming form presented her
with a handsome gold watch. This was
no great sacrifice for him, however, for
he know that in the event of consumma
ting his matrimonial hopes, the proper
ty would again revert to him, on the
principle that what his wife possesed
would he his owvn. H is inamorata was
for a wvhile much mollified by this splen
ded offering, but alas, soon she grew
cold by degrees, and at last, so beauti
fully frigid that she incontinently discar
Here was a beautiful pickle !-no
mat riage-no nothing ! and she as wvell
as the chronometer likely to become
"ainother's." The thought wvas mad
ness ! As a dernier resort he applied
on Saturday to a policeman to get his
watch back ; but on what principle is not
very clear. It seems to us that trover,
replevin, and all the usual .means of re..
covering property, must fail in this in
stance. We advise him to apply for a
neatly consti ucted writ of habeas corpus
before the Supreme Court Commissio
ner, and it that don't bring it, we have
no faith in any other remedy.-Brook

An Old Church.-The First Baptist
Church in the town of.Swanzey (Mass.)
was, as we leat'n by the Warren (t I.)
Star, originally consituted in Wales. It
was reorganized in bwanzeyvdf 16, and
is the oldest Baptist Church in--the com
monwealth of Massachusetts. Its early
history is full of interest, in connection with
the suffering of Indian warfare, and the
progres of liberal principles in religion
and civil government in this. cunry for
about a century it was the centre con
course for the people of several adjoining
towns, and during much of this period its
membership was larger than tliat of any
other Baptist church in New England. It
has had a long line of excellent pastors,
some of whom were very eminent for their
piety, learning and eloquence.
Human Life- There is a happiness in
human life-who can doubt it? The man
who owns but a few acres of land, and
raises an abundantance to supply the ne
cessary wants of his family-can ask for
for no moro. If he is satisfied with his
condition-and there are thousands so
situated who are-no man is iore happy.
No political movemew distrliihis repose
-no speculative mania chases the calm
serenity from his mind--noschisms be
neath his' golden sky. - His family is the
world to him; his little lot is all his care.
Who sighs not far such a life of calmnoss
and serenity ?-Amid the cares and anx
ieties of business, who would not change
his prospects and his honors for the re
pose of him who is contented and happy
on his spot of ground, far from the noise
and bustle, princely luxury and squalid
poverty, of city life? If ifthere is a situn

and the growth of virtue, it is aimid the
