We are requested to state that some errors
occurred in the "Report of The Coipmis
sioners of the Poor .fer- Claremont County,"
published last week, on' aceunt of mistaket
in the copy sent for publication made by the
transcriber. They may be corrected by put.

The prices in the Charleston market, at the
close of the last weelf, were at from 4 7.8 to
6 c., with a..tendency, however, to decline.
The reports of next week will probably give
lower rates of sale.,

Address to the Irish and their Descendante
in T he United states and British Provincen
by IHibernicus. We. have been induced te
refer to this pamphlet for the purpose of no.
ticing the plan unfolded in it, for the ameliora.
tion of the distressed Irish. It -is that socie
ties of Irishmen and their decondants and
others in this country favorable to the cause
should be formed, for the purpose of remit.
ting money to Ireland to transport to this
country, and other open countries in Nortt
and South America- and elsewhere, as mans
as possible of the relatives of the members o
theso societies, and settle themn in varlous
part.., as owvners or tenants of land, according
as arrangomenta may be made with benevo
lent land owners. It is proposed that suct
societies should be formed in every city, town
village, district and county in the Unitei~
State., wherever Irishmen end their friendi
exist; that there should be chief societies ai
suitable places in 'each btate, and a su.
perintending national society. To this end
it is urged on Irishmen as a duty to preserv
among themselves "harmony, imanimity an
peace." tiuch a plan is well calculated t<
effect the objects in view, and, in other mat
ters, has been found to possess great eficeien
cy. Several ordors and societies exist ii
this country with the same organization car
ried out in detail.. Mhould our Irish friendi
be able to -effect their objects, there Is na
doubt that it will- result in benefit to thoiu
