it will be a painful task, indeed, for the
youthful reader, to follow the narrator
throughout his description of thw scene of
destitution, of misery and death; but even
in our owa happy estate, it is well, that we
should know something of the distress with
which other lands are afflicted. It is cal
culated to awaken the sympathies, the kind
er feelings of our nature, and to fill our
hearts with gratitude, to God who has show
ered the blessings of life in such rich pre
fusion all around us. Can we heedlessly
riot on the bounty of Heaven, while hun
dreds and thousands of our fellow creatures
are famishing for bread? No, no, in the
midst of our abundance, let us remember
the destitute. With hearts overflowing with
gratitude let us set apart a portion of God's
bounty, for the needy and distressed.
These suffering children of Ireland have a
peculiar claim upon our sympathies. We
are, many of us, descended from the same
progenitors. Side by side the sons of Erin
and America have battled for liberty. To
gether they struggled at Bunker's hill and
Camden; and their bones now lie entombed
beneath the same sod. Yes, the battle fields
of the revolution and of the last war were
crimsoned with Irish blood. In all her
struggles the Irish heart has sympathized
with America, while Irish blood and trea
sure have been freely poured forth in her
behalf. Even now the stars and stripes are
gallantly sustained upon the plains of Mesi
co by Irish hands. Then, have we no
sympathy for that people whose hearts have
ever pulsated for us in all our struggles?
Who have manifested their sympathy for us
not only by deeds of valor on the tented
field, but by eloquent and stirring appeals
in the council chamber? Their brethern
have been our associates in war, and in
peace ground the festive board, the fire
side and the family altar. Every where
their feelings have teen blended with ours,
till they seem, as it were, 2 part of our own
people our brethren indeed ic thought,
and in feeling, ourely then, in this, their
day of destitution and distress, every Ame
rican will readily contribute his mite to
wards their relief. We would be glad to
see relief committee formed in our own
county, to whom every citizen could con
tribute something to be laid out in bread,
stuffs to save front imminent death this famine-stricken

The Iowa Gazette, of the 10th inst. says:
"We have little to add to the news that was
received here on Thursday evening. We
have elected our Judge by a handsome ma

been defeated. We deeply regret this, in
asmuch as it will result in the election of a
man wholly incompetent to the duties of the
important office to which a blind adherence
to party, assisted by a mistaken religious
zeal has raised him."

tories of our armies- The principal houses
and public buildings were illuminated, and
presented a magnificent appearanee, whilst
in some were transparencies representing
prominent incidents in the different battles,
or the names of the most glorious battle
fields of the war. At small intervals were
bonfires, with banners waving from the dif
ferent flae-staffs, and everywhere the evi
dences of enthusiasm for the war were
clearly manifest. Who can doubt after
such demonstrations, that the American
people are in favor or the most vigorous
vindication of our national rights and hon

murderous foe.' St. Louis evinced last

Ma. Editor: Permit me through your
columns to contradict a report which has
obtained circulation with great rapidity,
and much to my prejudice in the ensuing
election. I refer to a report, now current
in many parts of the county, that I had
witiulrawn from the canvass for the Clerk
ship of the County Court of Pike county,
and become a candidate for that of the
Circuit Court. The preposition was made
to me by several persons during the first
week of the present court, and I was
strongly urged by many to make the pro
posed change, but I did not in one instance
consent thereto. The import, in whatever
manner it may have obtained circulation,
is wiKiilv untrue; and 1 here take occasion;
to say that I am still a candidate for the
office of Clerk of the C.jvnfy Cuurf, and
shall remain so until after the August elec
tion. C. S. BROWN.

vessels belonging to the squadron and Gen.
Quitman's brigade, left for Alvarado on the
31st,. An officer from Vera Cruz says the
advance on the city of Mexico will not be
made before September. Gen. Twiggs
had taken up the Ime of march for the Na

will be quartered on the high lands net r

of duties to be Ivied at Vera Cruz.
Refore reaching the cai ital, Santa Anna
sent forward a messenger, ann nmcing his
approach and determintion to assume tl e

chief of the insurgents, to disband his forces,
which order was obeyed. A deputation

to proceed with all possible despatch to Ve
ra ci uz. Un the 27 ult. another large iorce
was despatched from the capital to relieve
Vera Cruz. They will constitute an army
as large as that under Scott.
At Tampico, all excitement had subsisted.
The rumored attack of the Mexicans on Tu-
span, was no longer apprehended.
There is no indication in any quarter
that the .Vexicans contemplate a negotia

other authorities, talk as fiercely as ever.
