Seymour and Conkling.
The New York lIeracht is not as
n1lelotUS for Grant as it was a few
months back, while its representative,
John Russell Yoing, was cavorting
with his I lighmess around the world,
coiisunling hasheesh with the Abk
hound of Swat, ogling the swarthy
13eguml of 13hopai, or devouring pup
py hash with peacock-fi'athered iM1au
darines, or pufling fragrant Latakia
with pashas of inlanly tails from a coim
mon hoakahi. Whether the walling
enthusiasun of the Jlcrraldl arose from I
the cur. reliusal of General Grant to
pernitit a 1/e/dc correspondcnt to ac
comipany his circus in its present
Soulhern ald Mexican trip, is not
known, but certainly the IIerald is not
now for Grant. Itoseoc Conkling,
the wattled gobbler of the Senate, is
now the comling m1tnan. In a long
artielo the IIerald shows that Horatio
Seyiour would sweep New York
like a whirlwind against any candi
date of the liepublicans save one, that
sole exception being the wattiled and
tuiled statesinanl aoresaid. Seymiour
carried New York against (rant in
18t38, and last November the only can
didate elected on I lie Democratic tick
et was Iloratio Seymllour, Jr.. known
chiefly as the nephew of his uncle.
'T.'he IIlerld believes that Seymour is
the strolgest Democrat in the United
States, and that he would rouse the
]Dem:ocracy of New Jersey and Con
neeticutt equally with those of' New
Graut would encounter the opposi
t.ion of Itl tle aiti-third-tcrllers and
the in3de id-. Blaine is at da-.r
gers' points with Conkling. Sher
man, with Ilayes, was directly
snubbed and1 insulted by the election
of Cornell. It. has all along I en ats
ert 1 by he ltheepublicans that Conk
h1ng is a devoted partisant of Grant,
that all his energies are bent. to secur
Ing a third term for the ex-l'resident.
The Ilcr/el, however, gives he
startIiag intormaf ion that ranlt, whell
in Wa'1shington, althoughel he Saw at
mu Itittide of( people, good, bad and
indifferent, did not see ('onlkling, and
refused to visit New York. This iIIy
inean a rupItre betweein those wortlt
les, and the-consequ1ent. lsp iralltIons of
Conkling hiisell. As New York is
the Pivotal State, both Democrats
and Riepublicans may select standard
benrerts from its borders. Ini that
case Conkling aned Seymour, brothers
int-law, uny contend for the mastely.
This would be a struggle of giants.
Conikling holds tlie tepmblican party
of New York in his hand. lie is in
teilectually very strong and is a per
foot, bull-dozer. Totally wanting in
tile mlorals and( v'irt u that deservedly
place Mr'. Seymiour onl such a high
p)lanei, this detect. mayl not a1ilinte
froml himi Repub1llicani suppor't. It
wvouldi be as wvell to watchl out for
Conikling'. lIe wvould mallke a v'ilaini

The Situation in Ireland.
The qulestionl is tfrequenCtily asked
why~ tihe (lesti iution iln Irelnd Is con
lied to a few1 localities inlstead1 of be
Iig gener'al over' the w~hiole islandl(. A
recent let ter f'rom IreCland( to the New
York Ierald gives anl C exlaat Iln
of this, whlich may be co i ect. Ae
cording to the writer there are two
Irelands, tha t of' good orabile land(, anid
that of bad or infeirior land, such ano
Sligo, D)onegal and1( parts( of 31ayo and
(Galway, iln tile westerni andi north
weist ern 1' ports of' tile islandi. It
seemsl inIcred2ible fthat excessive sub
division should take plaec only ini the
d1ist.ricts where the land is. tile worst.
Yet, such is the case. An. for tile
mtost. wretched spot inl Ir'eland( and( 0110
will be shiown' to an1 estate where the
landt is the poorest, and where, at tihe
samec filme, the greatest number of
tenants congregate. Take, fol' in
Stanle, Lord Dillon's estatfe. 'The
Jlte Lord Dillonm, who1 dlied only a f'ew
wveeks ago, wats regard(ed as onie of'
the best lhmdlords ill Irelandt-a mIodel,
inl fact. Yet his tenants are the most
wretched inl the counitry, solely onl
alccounIt of the smllness1c~ of the hold
ings 01n his est ate and1( the b)adnmess of
his land. It is said( thalt there' are on
his prIoperty 3,600 tenatlis, none1 of
whom l)ay over ?4 a year' r'ent. TJhere:
is another estalto ill Irelanid, thle renital
oif which only amounts to ?1,000; yet,
it is divided into 600 hloldinlgs. Yet
nlother' has 2,600 fenlants, non11 paying
over ?3 a year renlt. The exessive
subdivision of these holdings is said
to bo the r'easonl of' the destItutIon,
-tenanllts not hiavinig eniough land to
raise4' MuflcienIt sulplies. Froml in
for naitioni laid before Parlliment Il
1870, it appear's that out of six hun11
dired and1( t wenty thiouisand farms inI
the whole Island, five hundred and(
twelve thousand are' v'ated at less
than nlinety dollars rent per' anniuml,
whbIle, as above shown, thousands are
much smaller thlan this. Sir' Roger
P1almer's, in County Mayo, conisists
of eighty thlousanld acres, and rents
for about sixty-five thousand dollar's a
*yearn, not quite a dollar an acre, allow
ing the inferior' quality of the land(.
Yet ont tils are anly lnmber of hlold
ings of less thanl five Enmglish acres or
about three IIshB acres. In 0on0 por
tIon of his Derrycoosh farm there are
thirty odd famnilies on1 a hundred and
fiteen Irishl acres. The Widow
Quinn supports a family onl twvo and
a iialf Irish1 aores, or four English
acresa, and-pays seveun dollar:s rent be
sides. The Widow Murphy has threo
English acres and pays five dollars.
Early in Ducombre her stack of straw
and oats, valued at ?10 to ?12, was
burned to the ground during the
night by malicio4s fellow tenants, be
cuuse she was suspected of having
paid her rent. It can be readily seen
why she should be destitute at this
time. Fortunately the law allows
these victims full compensation, and
the tenants of the (listr"ict have to di
vide the cost among them; but it takes
I long time to recover the money
through the court, so that she unfortu
nate teunnt may be totally unable to
tide over afl'airs until the time of' com
The poor law, however, provides
that, where the rent of' the holding is
four potmds the tenant, must pay half
the poor rate, or tax, but wficre the
rent is less than that aiounit the tent
ant is exempt. In I)errycoosh there
are but four tenants rated for the tax.
''ho correspondent does not think (
that ia reduction of the rent would 1
atlord munelh relief'. According to the
best satistician in Irceland, one hun
dred thousand tenants ink the island
pay not more than 1hree pounds or
fourteen dolla's and a halt' rent. A 1
reduction of even tlwenty-five per
cent. would only be three dollars and
sevent.y-live cents, while each tenant.
is in debt now from fifteen to tifty
dollars, to which the rent redction 1
would be but, i drop inl the bucket.
The letter concludes: Sir Roger
Pa11h.er is one of those landlords who
have tunedi a deaf' ear to the noisc of!
the agi tators, 11nal has refuisedl any r'e
ductiont of, rent. whatever. IIis estate 1
is said to he rented at thir rates, and I
believe he is regarded as a gool land
lord. Though he has refused to
redure the rents oii his estate
they are beinug itirly paid, particular
ly by the poorer tenants, as is the case
all over Ireland. Helievitie the agita

WatSu"rox, January 17, 1850.--A
telegram w as received yesterday at
the State Department 11"om Lieutenant c
Commiander Gorringe, of the United V

Egypt, superiltending the removal of
