wanted to circulate thu following now and beaptifUl
works, (retail price, $2 60 pur vol.) A new and complete
with a descriptive account of those countries and their
inhabitants, from the earlle?t period of authentic history
to the present time. In which the editor has treated not
only of the historical events, but also of the manners,
customs, religion, literature, and domestic habits of the
people of those immense empires.
The embellishments are about two hundred, and of the
first order, illustrating whatever is peculiar to the inhabi
tants, regarding their dress, domestic occupations, tliuir
mode of agriculture, commercial pursuits, arts, Ac. They
are accurate, and each one has been made expressly for
the work.

five and six hundred m??, printed in. tfeu best ?t.vle, and
on good substantial white paper.. It is furnished to agents,

ploy their time in supplying to the people of the United
States. They are valuable for reference, and should be

of small importance, but contains many citizens to whom
these works are indispensable. They are adapted to the
literary wants of the Christian, the patriot, the statesman,
and the domestic circle, got up in a superior style of art
and workmanship; and are not only such books as will
sell, but arc such as an agent of good principle will feel
free to recommend, and willing to see the purchaser again
after they have been bought.

IN consequence of the great number of complaints which
have for a long tlmo been made by Bmigrauts, of frauds
committed upon them in the sending of money to their
friends in Ireland, and to aid and protect the Emigrant,
the Irish Emigrant Society established a fund, deposited
in the Bank of Ireland, upon which they draw drafts,
payable at sight, at any of the branches of the Bank.
Persons residing out of the eity, by enclosing in a letter
the sum they wish forwarded, with the plainly written
direction to whom and where it is to be paid, will have the
same remitted.
Tliero is a great advantage in purchasing the Society's
drafts?that the Bank has a branch in each of the princi
pal towns in Ipelaud, and thus tho losses by discount, and
otherwise, are avoldud
The Society keeps an office at No. 22 Spruce street, to
which Emigrants can apply to obtain situations for which
they aro fitted.
Orders from employers in the country, stating the ser
vices required, the wages, and the cheapest modes of con
veyance. and giving a respectable reference, will meet with
prompt attention.
The Society will be. thankful for all circumstantial and
early information of any fraud, imposition, or outrage
committed on Emigrant h, ond will eudctivor speedily to
apply a remedy. ? GREGORY DILLON, President.

to give confluence to those who may not have tried it, we

name as a recommendation to tanners in general. To all
who know Mr. Z. C. Ryon this would be sufficient; but all
tanners in the city and country, who have used It, have
granted us this privttego. If ft were necessary we could
fill a newspaper with testimonials; but where all who use
arcpleaseu we deem it uncalled for.

[Otu'fpo Journal, J
Important from Cuba. The New York Sun,
of Monday, contains the substance of a letter
from Port Principe, dated May 4th, addressed
to a Cuban gentlemun in that city, who vouches
tor its truth aud correctness Nine of the most
eminent, talented and wealthy citizens of the
place were arrested before day, aud taken un
der close guard to the dungeons of Moro, in
Havana. Their names are Joseph K. Betau
coui t, lawyer ; Ferdinand -Betancourt, lawyer ;
Manuel Arango, lawyer; Joaquin Rivera, law
yer; i-rancisco Varona, planter ; Francisco V.
Batista, planter; Francis Qucrada, planter;
and Salvador Cisnero, planter. The pretence
under which they were arrested is, that they
were engaged in the revolutionary movement,
now on foot in the island. The'arrests were
made by order of the Captain-General to Senor
Leimerich, the Governor. The officers are also
in pursuit of Senor Solitarjo, of Cunaquez, Se
nor Augustin, Joseph Castillo and others. The
correspondent of the Sun represents the excite
ment throughout the island as intense, and
thinks that the outrage will arouse the whole
population to a sense of their danger and the
necessity of resistance to the Spanish despo
tism which now rules only to oppress and ruin
Revolutionary Fekuno in Cuba?Spanish
Opmotu.?The Savannah Republican has some
translations of extracts from Spanish letters
from Havana, received by the Isabel. They
come by private hands. After vouching for the
entire truth of its assertions, one dated the 8th
instant says:
Hourly, nay minutely, have we been anxiously
waiting to hear the joyful tidings of your beinj
lauded on the isle, or at least on your way. Do
not believe for a moment the rumors that you
will receive no aid here on the island. Many
Spanish officers and soldiers, independent of
the Creoles, will join the Patriot* hs soon as
they land; and could I, without endangering
the lives of many of my friends here, I would
give the names of some of the most influential
and wealthy planters on the islo, who have
pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor
in the contcst?such names as would make the
throne of her royal majesty tremble. The day
will come and that, too, ere long?when Cuba
it-ill be free! But still I fear for our friends
here, lor God knows if the least suspicion is
thrown out they will suffer, and that terribly.
Havana, May 8.?" Montes de Oca, the un
fortunate individual who was the victim of the
i barbarous government of Spain, met his fate
like a hero.
" Previous to his execution the Captain Gen
eral, Concha, gave him nine days to denounce
all the patriots on the island, and promised him
his liberty and a large sum of money ; but he
only replied that he would sooner die a thou
sand deaths than denounce his friends."
Troops in CvnA.?There are more regular
troops in that small island, probably, than in
V ?>? n?tiaSut.Vf North Americu?tlicy num
ber .,.>,000. Besides this great armament, there
are also several ships and wur-steamers around
the coast?we know not how many. Such are
the props of despotism and oppression.

vious to the separation, on account of differ
ences growing ont of the question of slavery

Methodist clergymen were present. The gen
eral fund, which is the object in controversy
is at this time invested in the Methodist Book
Establishments of Ohio and New Vork, and in
the charitable fund of Philadelphia. Messrs.
Keycrdy Johnson and 1). Lord appear for the
plaintiffs, and Messrs. George Wood and Rufus
t hoate for the defendants. The Hon. Thomas
bwing has also been retained as counsel for
the plaintiffs. The case is a deeply interesting
one as regards the parties and the principles
involved. r
The way of thk wori,d.?If some poor devil
without habitation, money, or friends, is charged
with a violation of law, an account of all the
circumstances is given as a warning to evil-doers
and a defence to the community against the
perpetration of crime from such agents; but let
a well-dressed individual with a fair exterior
money at command to secure friendly aid
with shrewdness enough to evade positive de
tection?let such, who have in the opinion of
hose familiar with their history been violating
law for a lifetime, and been imposing upon the
oommunity, be charged with their crimes, a
studied silence is observed?nothing to guard
the public against the imposters is snid, and he
may continue to outrage justice with impunity.
Battle of New ORi.FAxs.-The late Major
Davetac stated that, on the morning after the
battle of New Orleans, tterlve broiled robins
were placed on the breakfast table, prepared
for General Jackson and his suite, which had
been shot with a rifle, through the head, by one
of the Kentucky riflemen, who had been in the
conflict; he had fired thirteen time*, and missed
hitting his bird in the head only once! This
circumstance being soon known in the neigh
borhood, a certificate of the fact was requested
and obtained from General Jackson and his
aids by the British officers, that by such evi
dence. on their return to Kngland, they might
exhibit to their government the character of
the enemy at New Orleans.

Ladies a la Tuhque.?A young lady, dressed
in the new costume, astonished some of our
staid citizens yesterday, but we must say that
in our opinion it was a most becoming dress,
beautiful feet were handsomely encased iu half
patent leathers. The pantalooua were of mixed
tweed material, similar to the dress, full and
buttoned at the uncle. A large cape, and a
dashing straw hat, completed the costume of the
lady, who was evidently a stranger and travel
ler. We think the innovation will finally suc

noteworthy that the American great enterprise
is by a private company; the Russian is built
