Saturday Morning. December 5? 1808
FOREIGN IMMIGRATION.-But few
persons have an adequate idea of the
numbor of immigrants annually ar?
riving in the United States, or of the
amount of wealth they bring with
them. Statisticians estimate tho
number of immigrants from Euro
petiu States io this oouuiry since
1790, at six millions five hundred
thousand, and that their descendants
to-day nnmber fully twenty millions,
or about one-half of the entire popu?
lation. From 1820 to 1830, tho num?
ber of foreigners landed on our shores
was 244,190; from 1830 to 1840,
552,000;from 1840 to 1850, 1,588,300;
from 1850 to 1860, 2,707,624. Tho
annual average of immigration since
1860 is put down by Mr. Banks at
350,000, and actual investigation has
proved that each emigrant, man,
woman and child, represents from
eighty to one hundred dollara. Thus,
in thc aggregate, nearly $30,000,000
in gold ?8 added to tho money re
sources^of the country annually by
immigration alone. A cotemporary
says: "Bnt wo must look further
than the money value of the immi?
grant, and consider his productivo
caDacity." Estimating his labor nt.
fivo hundred dollars a year, at this
rate our annual immigration would
add ono hundred and fifty millions a
yoar to the cash value of the country.
Fort LaFayette, in New York har?
bor, which was made so notorious
during tho war, os a placo of confine?
ment for Confederate prisoners, was
accidentally destroyed by fire, on the
1st. It was undergoing repairs, and
a vast amount of material was within
the enclosure. The fire raged until
past mid-night, completely gutting
tho entire work of everything of au
inflammable nature. Great fears
were entertained that au explosion
would occur, from thc fact that there
were 35,000 pounds of gunpowder in
tho magazine. Fortunately, though
sorely triod, tho bomb-proof proved
efficient in staying the progress ol
the fire in that dangerous quarter,
and a fearful explosion was averted.

GOODNEWB.-A Washington lettei
in the Baltimore Gazelle says that ?
decidedly better feeling seems to prc
vail among leading radicals now hon
than existed last winter. I may sa}
that there is a prospect of removing
the disabilities under which Souther!
men aro now prostrated.

In tho evening, there was u jollificn
tion, which is thus described by th
"The gratification of our citizen
over the election for Mayor am
members of Council, culminated, las
night, in a gonoral celebration. Ou
streets were brilliantly illuminate'
with bon-fires, while tho very ai
seemed on fire with beautiful pyre

This was participated in by an in

pans, trumpets and other fearful]
discordant instruments, marched i

upon tho shoulders of some ton pal

GENTLEMEN: Knowing the interest

ie:; cy yea inaiviauauy ?~v. t
you represent, in all questions affect?
ing the welfare of the State, I take
the liberty of asking your opinion
and advice upon a question which,
though domestioand individual iu its
immediato relations, assumes the na?
ture ot a State question in somo of
its bearings. I allude to tho disposi?
tion of some of our citizens not to
employ laborers next year who voted
the Republican ticket in tho recent
I am aware that tho "State Central
Club" nover adopted nor recom?
mended tho adoption of that policy,
or any other, favoring any interfer?
ence with tho freo exercise of the
electivo franchise. On the contrary,
tho State Club invariably recom?
mended such measures only as were
calculated to prevent force, fraud, or
any improper influence, and to se
oure, as far as possible, a fair elec?
tion, which policy has beeu fully
sustained as a party, even under the
most trying circumstances.
Individuals, of course, have the
right to employ whomsoever they
pleoRr?. n.nri could not be expected to
employ those who have made them?
selves particularly obnoxious to their
employers, by taking n leading and
active part against their interests.
But thcro were many of that class re?
cently enfranchised, who, being ig?
norant and credulous, were deceived,
and in many instances, threatened
with violence, if they did not vote the
Republioau ticket. Some of them
have, since tho election, admitted
that they were deceived into voting
against their own true interests, and
express regret nt having done so.
Under such circumstances, though
there may bo but a fow such indivi?
duals who may bo thus deprived
of employment, would it not bc but
carrying out tho established State
policy of the Democratic., party, foi
your Committee (its representative
head) to urge every ono to exorcise fl
lenient and forbearing spirit in th?
premises, to save, if possible, oven
those fow individuals from being
subject to unnecessary hardship'
Very respectfully, yours, Ac,

it is tho undoubted right of even
