Editors: During the last year the public mind has been much exercised in rela tion to disturbances between fire companies in nearly all the large cities, including Washing ton ; and numerous communications huve ap peared in the National Intelligencer, Republic, and Saturday Evening Newt, designed to draw the attention of the people to some plan of or ganization, which would prevent the disgrace ful scenes so frequently passing under their notice. Among others, two articles appeared in the first-named paper about a year ago, sug gesting the pay principle instead of the volun teer, and the propriety of the Corporation be coming the insurer of all taxable improvements, with a view to raise the necessary funds to maintain the fire department upon that princi ple. I think they proposed to give some twenty five or thirty men to each engine, and to make these men police officers as well as firemen, both for night as well as day service. These communications were written, if I recollect aright, over the signature of "Reform," and were reviewed and favorably spoken of by a writer in the Republic, and subsequently more fully by a correspondent of the National Intel ligencer. To this latter article there was a re ply signed "Perseverance," the burthen of whose objections seemed to be that the premium to be paid the Corporation for insurance would not be sufficient to defray the expense of the pay system. Let us sec what the pay system would be likely to cost. By my calculation it need not oxcoed $25,000 per annum for several years to come. How much does the police system for this city cost the General Government and our Cor poration? Without going into a calculation, I will venture, without the fear of contradiction, that it exceeds by several thousand dollars the amount stated as necessary to maintain a fire and police system combined, and which, if adopted, would secure the preservation of the fire apparatus, efficiency at fires, and the pub lic peace in every alley, square and street of our extended and rapidly-improving Metropolis. Add to this the amount that would accrue to the Corporatioi|from premiums for insuring the improved property of the city, and you would have a fund sufficiently large to maintain a bet tor fire and police system than any now organ ized in any city of this glorious Union. What is the experience of the people of St. Louis, Missouri, in relation to the volunteer system of Fire Companies ? Hear Ihem : " The Fire Department at St. Louis is to be 4 reorganized by abolishing the present system 4 of volunteer companies, and establishing six ? companies of forty men each, at a salary of ' $80 per annum for each man. The B&l&ry of ' the chief engineer is to be $1,200, and he is ' to be allowed two assistants at $000 each. 4 The total annual expense of the department ? after the first year is set down at $29,400; ' the expense for the first year, in providing 4 houses and apparatus, would be $10,000 more. 4 To meet this expense, it is proposed to tax 4 the insurance companies." The editors of the Baltimore Sim, in copying the above article, remark: 44 Why cannot some such system be adopted 4 in Baltimore ? It would be worth the trial to 4 sec what might be the result as to the good 4 order of the city." Both St. Louis and Baltimore have suffered immensely from this volunteer system, which answers every purpose in the towns and villages, but are only promoters of disturbances in our populous cities; for the reason, that those who ought to be most forward in volunteering their services on such occasions, give themselves no trouble about it, and, with few exceptions, leave it to those who really own nothing, and too often care for nothing except to be in mischief. These remarks are more applicable to larger cities than our own, but will fully apply to this before I very long. Third Ward. MRS. DE KROYFT. We have seen and conversed with this gentle, modest and pretty blind lady, and can well ap prove the remarks made of her and her book by a reviewer In the National Intelligencer. Her volume, entitled 44 A place in thy Memory," wag published by John F. Trow, in New York, and is for sale in this city by Mr. Franck Tay lor and Messrs. Taylor A Maury. We quote the remarks of the reviewer be-1 oause of their aptness, and the extracts ap-' pended because of their touching simplicity and beauty: This little volume especially commends itself to public consideration as the work of a lady en tirely blind; yet of one whose clearness of men tal and moral vision makes large amends for the loss of the physical faculty. It is a collec tion of letters to familiar friends, in the course of which she describes much of her experience, and discloses much* of her habits of thought and fancy in the new world and new state of being in which the loss of her eyes left her. Its pages, however, bear in but slight degree the impress of that sadness which we are apt to regard as inseparable from the thick night which broods unceasingly and forever upon the totally blind, but glow often with the light of a spirit that can make its own sunshine; the ra dianco of playful fancies and the calmer beams of a brave, religious resignation. And she has had need enough of these, for her loss of sight has not been tho only heavy affliction that has darkened her path of life. A severer one, to such a heart as her's, must have been that im mediately preceding, and probably causing her blindness, as we learn its history from her vol ume, which made her a widow in four days after a marriage solemnized beside the death bed of the husband, and in the certainty of his immediate death?a widow from the close of the ceremony which made her a wife. In her own simple and expressive language, she 44 was in one short month a bride, a widow, and blind." That a woman should bear herself up and rise with a chcerful conrage from the over whelming of such afflictions, is surely matter of admiration. That Mrs. De KROYrr does so, is shown as well by her avowed purpose in pub lishing her work as in its general tone. This, as we learn from the prefaoe and one of the let ters, is to reliove herself from a condition of dependence upon the generosity of friends, by earning the means of her own support?a pur pose which she will be enabled fully to accom plish by the patronage for which her sex and the story of her woes and her heroic endurance so eloquently plead. The mechanical execution of the work is sueh as to render it a pretty addition to the centre table und the ladies' library. In its literary execution it contains, to be sure, faults of rhe toric, such as might be expected to escape de tection and amendment by one not yet expe rienced in the vocation of the author, and deprived of^ the almost indisponsuble assistance of the eye, in the work of criticising and cor recting. It however abounds with passagos of rare beauty; with beautiful thoughts, ex pressed in the beautiful, because in the simple, language by which heart most audibly speaks to heart. We shall probably not be singular in considering as such the following, from one of her descm)tions of blindness and her experience of its incident, contained in a letter to a female friend, also blind: "Our night is unending. Days steal on ua, and stoal from us. We sleep and awaken; but no change eomes. No flowers spring up in our path; no garden-walks or fields unfold their colors; no mountains rise, no rivers roll, nor oceans swell. To u? beauty hath veiled her face, and grandeur hath passed away. Yes, Mary, all things have passed away. The moon has left the sky, and all the stars have g(M?e down forever, go the bright dreams of our youth have fled, and promised joys come not. All around are blithe and gay, but from morn to we, Mary, we move cautiously and pensively. Our truant feet often go astray, and we know not when danger is nigh. As the chained eagle looks heavenward and stretches out its wing in fancied freedom, so we some times intercept the flight of time, and live for getful in light and joy and hope, but only to return and weep in darkness more dark, and loneliness more lonely. But our darkness, like the clouds, must have its sunny side ; for God takes blessings from us only when tlieir ab sence is the greater blessing. Sorrow sancti fied, quickens into newness of life the better feelings of our nature; and, Mary, does it not make us love our friends and all the world more, and go not our thoughts oftener up to God and heaven ?" And the following, extracted from another letter: " They tell me that gratitude, the holiest of emotions, is too much 'the theme of my letters; that I give words of thanks and praise to everybody who is kind, all unmindful that green-eyed prejudice is still in the world. But they who say this should know that years have gone by since even a harsh word has fallen on my ears, since I have seen a frowning face, a look of anger or revenge. The cold, the un feeling, whose bouIs are filled with selfishness and pride, never seek the friendship of the blind, but, like the priests and Levites, pass by on the other side. Ho you see I am necessarily always with the good, for they alone find plea sure in contributing to the happiness of one who can make no return for their multiplied favors. Miss Ferrier says beautifully in her ' Marriage ' As the ancients held sacred the oak riven by the lightning, bo a delicate mind always regards one who is afflicted, as if touched by the hand of God himself.' " We are creatures of habit, and form our notions of the world from what we sec of it. W onder not, then, if I call it only bright and beautiful. Those around may wear looks of sadness; may?row old; their teeth may fall; their eyes become dim, and their locks gray; wrinkles may be on their brows, trace-marks of grief and care; but they look not -so to me. The last time I saw the green earth and its inhabitants they wore yet the sunny hues of innocence and gladness, with which unsuspect ing youth covers all things. And so they seem to me now; and were I to bear a report to hea ven, I shall call this charming world a kind, a loving, a forgiving world; I should say that men oftener love than hate, oftener do rood than ill. 6 ' Long, long be my heart with *ucli memories filled, Like the tim In which roue* hare once been distilled; You may tmak, you m?y ruin the Yiwe if you will, Hut the scent of the roup* will hanj round it ?U11.' " IRELAND AND HER PROSPECTS. At the dinner given at King's Hotel, in this city, on St. Patrick's day, Mr. F. McNkuhahy, in response to a complimentary sentiment, de livered the following brief but eloquent address: Mr. President and Gentlemen?I feel highly honored by the call you have made upon me, and regret, not having anticipated it, 1 am not better prepared to respond. But, after all, it needs no preparation to make a speech on a day like this?a day sanctified by religion, conse crated by patriotism, immortalized in song and story, and cherished, wherever throbs an Irish h?art, with the profoundest love and venera tion?a day brightened by a thousand glorious memories, linked with many of the most pleasing recollections of the past, and associated with all that is beautiful ana captivating in the brilliant picture of Erin's glory. Upon ner ancient brow she wears no wreath more lovely than that en twined by her illustrious Patron Saint. Impov erished, desponding, famishing she may be? oppressed, insulted, persecuted she undoubtedly is jet, amid all her afflictions, all her sorrows, all her sufferings, she has clung to that pure and spotless legacy, and venerated, with an abiding devotion, the name, the virtues, the memory of St. Patrick. The history of nations will be searched in vain for such an example of heroic virtue, con stantly practised in the midst of the dcmoraliz ing influences of a graceless and merciless ty ranny. And though, at last, under the weight of oppression, her spirit should be broken, crushed?though Hope, the only star that glim mers on the horizon of her future, should be extinguished forever?though all aspirations for liberty, for nationality, should die within the hearts of her people?yet wonld her glo rious deeds rise above the malice of her ene mies, and shcil abroad their effulgent light; for, " Like the vase in whieh rows have onee been distilled, j You may break, yon may ruin the vane If you will. But the went of the rnms will hang round U Hill." But, my friends, the spirit of Ireland is not broken ! Oh, no! She is like a giant pinioned, motionless. She will yet snap the cords that bind her; and when she does, then will she stand erect?peerless in beauty, majestic in dignity. Then, as St. Patrick banished from her soil the unseemly reptiles that crawled amid its 1 verdure, so will she banish the human reptiles ! that have battened upon the very life's blood , of her people and decimated their numbers. ' Then, indeed, will Erin rise like a star above I the gloom of ages. Then, indeed, will her | groen hills be greener still?her valleys, tinged with heaven s brightest hues, will smile into 1 i new life and beauty?her skies will glow with more genial, more ohcering beam?her people ' will be prosperous, contented, happy?and her dear old harp, no mom attuned to sadness, will i thrill the world with its exultant strains I Then, 1 indeed, will her O'Connell's and her O'Brien's j be avenged. The exalted spirit of the one will J hover above the isle he loved so well, and con- j template it with rapturous delight; while the other, no longer an exiled "felon," will breathe onoe more his native air, and dwell again upon a land which his noble heart so ardently yearned to see liberated from a degrading bondage. Yes! Ireland will yet be free. God has writ ten it, as with a sunbeam, on the dark skiea that now o'erhang that sorrowing land. It is physically impossible, it is morally impossible, it is contrury to the providence of Qod, that eight millions of people, gifted with eminent virtues, with great intellectual faculties, with indomitable energies, with heroic courage, with a productive soil, with a genial soil?singled out, as it were, by the favor of Heaven, and blessed with all the elements not only of indi vidual happiness, but of true, solid, lasting, national renown?it is impossible, 1 say, that BUch a people can remain much longer in their prevent degraded, destitute, impoverished con dition. It is utterly impossible. What, then, is wanted to redeem Ireland, and to lift her to the very pinnacle of national greatness? A union of hearts and of hands?that union which knit in a holy brotherhood the men of our own glorious revolution; and one firm resolve?that resolve which fired their souls?the resolve to be free! Ireland has the power; she only needs the trill to be free. " Ob, If tho men of Krin knew Their own inherent power? If to thomsolves they were but true, They'd not be slaves this hour! If one great truth thoy would but learn? Who would be frtt mutt will it? With strong resolve each heart would burn, No coward fear would chill It." Yes, the will to be free?the resolve to be free?would prove the precurser of a glorious achievement. The Duke of Wellington once boasted that with a regiment of Irishmen he would not fear to meet the devil and all his imps?whom, then, should Ireland in arms fear ? Oh! they'd drive the foe before them as waves sweep the pebbles from the strand! The necessity of this union of sentiment and action, I am glad to perceive, is becoming more apparent to the people of Ireland. Fewer dis sensions prevail. The national pulse begins to beat with a healthy tone. Soon, I trust, in the languages of one of the sentiments offered this evening, a host of avenging heroes will spring from the ashes of the mighty dead. Soon, I hope, the accursed union with England will be forever sundered, and Erin will emerge from the darkness and degradation of her starless night of bondage to the beauty and glory of her dazzling morn of independence ! TIIE FOREST FUNERAL. She was a fair child, with tresses of long black hair lying over her pillow. Her eye was dark and piercing, and as it met mine she started slightly, but looked up and smiled. I spoke to her father, and turning to her, asked her if tho knew her condition t " I know that my Redeemer liveih," said she, in a voice whose melody was like the sweetest strains of the .A?olian. You may imagine the answer startled me, and with a very few words of the like import, I turned from her. A half hour passed, and she spoke in that same deep, rich, melodious voice:. " Father, I am cold?lie down beside me," and the old man laid down by his dying child, and she twinod her arms around his neck, and murmured in a dreamy voice, "Dear father, dear father!" "My child," said the old man, "doth the flood seem deep to thee?" "Nay, father, my soul is strong." "Seest thou the thither shore?" "I see it, father, and its banks arc green with immortal verdure." " Hcarcst thou the voices of its inhabitants !" " I hear them, father?the voices of angels falling from afar in the still and solemn night time?and they call me. Her voice, too, father! Oh! I heard it then." "Doth she speak to thee?" "She spcakcth in tones most heavenly." " Doth she smile ?" "An angel smile 1 but a cold, calm smile; but I am cold?cold! Father, there is a mist in the room; you'll bo lonely. Is this death, father !" "It is death, my Mary." "Thank God!" Sabbath evening came, and a slow procession wound through the forest to the little school house. There, with simple rites, the clergy man performed his duty, and went to the grave. The procession was short. There were hardy men and rongh, in shooting-jackets, and some with rifles on their shoulders. But their warm hearts gave beauty to their unshared faces, aud they stood in reverent silence by the grave. The river murmured, and the birds sang, and so we buried her. I saw the sun go down from the same apot, and the stars were bright before I left, for I always had an idea a grave-yard was the near est place to heaven on earth; and, with old Thomas Brown, I love to see a church in a grave-yard; for even as we pass through the plaee of God on earth, so we must through the grave to the temple of God on high.?Exchange, Stati'k or Wkb.itk*.?The April No. of the International Monthly Magazine states that it is in contemplation to place in the Park of New York city a colossal figure of Mr. Webster, by Hiram Powers.
