IN consequence of the great number of complaints which
have for a long time been made by Emigrants, 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 establlshud 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 city, 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.
There is a great advantage in purchasing the Society's
drafts?that the Bank has a branch in each of the princi
pal towns in Ireland, and thus the losses by discount, and
otherwise, are avoided.
The Society keeps an office at No. 22 Spruce street, to
which Emigrants can apply to obtain situations for which
they are 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 Emigrants, and will endeavor speedily to
apply a remedy. GREGORY DILLON, President

have used it, that it scarcely needs commendation. But
to give confidence to those who may not have tried it, we
would say that Z. C. Ryon, foreman to A. M.Taylor & Co.,
Columbia street, Cincinnati, has authorized us to use his
name as a recommendation to tanners in general. To all
who know Mr. 7.. C. Ryon this would be sufficient; but all
tanners in the city and country, who have used it, have
granted us this privilege. If It were necessary we could
fill a newspaper with testimonials; but where all who use
are pleased we deem it uncallod for.
The Tanners' Blacking Is put up in kegs containing six
gallons, ready for use, and will be sent to any point on
the canal, railroad, or river, at fifty cents per gallsn.
All orders should be addressed, post paid, to

Washington, May 23,1851.
From the Lynchburg Virginian.
A few nights ago Mty. Lewcllen, of Halifax
C. H., lodged at the Washington Hotel, in this
place, and, having a largo amount of money
with him, he was very particular, on retiring to
bed, to secure it about his person. On awaking
next morning, he discovered his pocket-books
were all in place, as well as the roll in which
most of the money was. In one of the pocket
books he had $200, in another $57, into which
he bad divided the money, for particular pur
poses ; but, having occasion to leave his room
in some haste, he had laid the two pocket-books
on the table. During his absence, Billy, a ser
vant of the hotel, went into the room, and, dis
covering the pocket-books exposed on the table,
took them and placed them under Maj. Lewel
len's carpet-bag, and, as soon as the latter came
in, Billy informed him what he had .done. The
Major thanked him for his care, and put them
in his pocket, thinking no more of the matter.
Having no occasion, however, during the day
to open the wallet containing $57, to his as
tonishment he discovered the fifty-dollaT note
was missing. He immediately repaired to
the hotel and acquainted the clerk with his
loss, and detailed the circumstances of the
morning as they occurred in his room. Regard
ing Billy as a most trust-worthy servant, the
clerk was completely astounded , at the revela
tion, and immediately went to the private- resi
dence of Col. Langhorne, the proprietor of the
hotel, for instructions* how to prooeed. (hi
learning that Mr. Norris (the clerk) was at the
door waiting to see Col. Langhorne, Billy, the
suspected servant, remarked to another, " Mr.
Norris, I reckon, bus come up to see about Maj.
Lewellen's pocket-book"?thus indicating an j
anxiety about the matter which confirmed the
suspicions of guilt that already existed against
him. Billy was taken back to the hotel, and,
in the examination to which he was subjected,
involved himself in repeated inconsistencies and
contradictions, all the while manifesting the
greatest confusion and uneasiness, but at the
same time protesting his innocence, and prom
ising to raise the money out of his own means
if they would give him a little time. As soon
as he got an opportunity he made off to his
wife's house, fie says, in order to be the first to
break the sad news of the difficulty in which he
was involved, to " the partner of his bosom,"
because he knew she would be distressed if she
heard it from any body else, and because he
knew she would credit hu asseveration of inno
cence ; but everybody else thought Billy had
gone to hide or destroy the money.
The protracted and rigid examination, how
ever, disclosed no new facts, and the money
was given over as lost, and tendered by Colonel
Langhorne to M^jor Lewellcn, who refused to
receive it. The circumstances left scarcely
a doubt as to Billy's guilt, but it was deemed
best to let the matter rest for a while; and
with this understanding M^jor L. started home,
mmtu fifty dollars. Since his departure some
new facts have come to light, which are dis
closed in the following letter:
Campbell Coi'KT-hocse, May 6, 1851.
Jamet Langhorne, etq.
Dear Sin: It is with sincere pleasure I in
form you that Billy is entirely innocent of tak
ing my lost fifty-dollar note. I delayed my
journey home this morning to see Mr. Dinwid
die, hoping that by some mistake the fifty dol
lars was in his possession. On sight I asked
him whether I had not, the day before, paid to
him fifty dollars in two twenty-dollar bills and
one ten-dollar bill ? He replied that I had done
so, and that be had not unrolled the money
since its receipt. Then, taking out the roll of
money, We found the lost fifty dollars attached
to the lower twenty-dollar note I This equally
surprised us both ; but my pleasure in relieving
Billy's character of all suspicion by this discov
ery was much greater than that derived from
the recovery of my money. 1 trust that you
will make my humble apologies to Billy. I de
tailed to you all the circumstances which ex
cited a suspicion of Billy's guilt; and my con
solation is that they were of such a character as.
apparently, to point to Billy only, who is hap
pily relieved. Very respectfully, yours,
Jno. S. Lkwelle*.
This is a very happy and romantic termina
tion of what the Major and Billy no doubt re
garded as a very sad affair. When the above I
letter was received at the hotel, Billy's wife, as
if by special arrangement of Providence, hap- j
pened to be passing by the door, when she was
immediately called in and the letter read to her
and Billy at the same time by Mr. Norris, who
says he has seen happiness exhibited in various 1
degrees, but never to such ?in extent as the poor
negroes manifested. "I knowed you didn't
b'liove I was guilty, Mary," said the happy
husband. ??No, Billy, 1 knowed you didn't
steal dat money ; bless the Lord, I'm so happy!"
responded his overjoyed spouse.

" How many children have you?"
41 Four."
" AH young Vy
" Yes, ma'am. The oldest is but seven years
of age."
44 Have you a husband?"
The woman replied, in a changed voice,
44 Yes, ma'am. But he isn't much help to
me. Like a great many other men, he drinks
too much. If it wasn't for that, you wouldn't
find me crying fish about the street# in the
spring, and berries through the summer, to get
bread for my children. He could support us
all comfortably, if he was only sober; for he
has a good trade, and is a good workman. He
used to earn ten, and, sometimes, twelve dollars
a week."
" How much do you make towards support
ing your family ?" 1 asked.
?? Nearly all they get to live on, and that
isn't much," she said bitterly. " My husband
sometimes pays the rent, and sometimes doesn t
even do that. I have made as high as four dol
lars in a week, but oftener two or three is the
most I get."
" How in the world can you support your
self, and husband, and lour children, on three
dollars a week ?"
" 1 have to do it," was her simple answer.
" There are women who would be glad to get
three dollars a week. They would think them
selves well off."
" But how do you live on so small a sum ?"
"We have to deny ourselves almost every
little comfort, ami confine ourselves down to
the mere necessaries of life. After those who
can afford to pay good prices for their market
ing have been supplied, we come in for a part
of what remains. I often get meat enough for
a few oenta to last me several days. And the
same way with vegetables. After the markets
are'over the butchers and country people, whom
we know, let us have lots of tilings for almost
nothing, sooner than take them home. In this
way we make our slender means go a great
deal farther than they would if we had to pay
the highest market price for every thing. But,
it too often happens that what we gain here is
lost, in the eagerness we feel to sell whatever
we have, especially when, from having walked
and cried for a long time, we become much fa
tigued. Almost every one complains that we
ask too much for our things, if we happen to
be one or two cents above what somebody has
paid in market, where there are almost as many
different prices as there are persons who sell.
And, in consequence, almost every one tries to
beat us down. It often happens that, after I
have walked for four hours and sold but very
little, I have parted with my whole stock at
cost to some two or three ladies, who would
not have bought from me at all if they hadn't
known that they were making good bargains
out of me ; and this because 1 could not bear
up any longer. I think it very hard, sometimes,
when ladies, who have every thing in plenty,
take ofT of me nearly all my profits, after I have
toiled through the hot sun for hours, or shiv
ered in the cold of winter. It is no doubt right
enough for every one to be prudent, and buy
things as low as possible; but it has never
seemed to me quite just for a rich lady to beat
down a poor fish-woman, or strawberry woman,
a cent or two on a bunch or a basket, when
that very cent made, perhaps, one-third or one
half of her profits.
?< it was only yesterday that I stopped at a
house to sell a bunch of fish. The lady took a
fancy to a nice bunch of small rock, for which
I asked her twenty cents. They had cost me
just sixteen cents. ?Won't you take three ftps!'
she asked. 4 That leaves me too small a profit,
madam,' I replied. ' You want too much profit,'
she returned; 11 saw just such a bunch of fish
in market yesterday for three fips.' ' Yes, but
remember,' I replied, ' that here arc the fish at
your door. You neither have to send for them,
nor bring them home yourself.' 4 Oh, as to that,'
she answered, 4 I've got a waiter whose business
it is to carry the marketing. It is all the same
to me. So, if you expect to sell me your things,
you must put them at market prices. 1 will give
you three fips for that bunch of fish, and no
more.' I had walked a great deal, and sold but
little. * I was tired and half sick with a dread
ful headache. It was time for me to think about
getting home. So I said, 'Well, ma am, I sup
pose you must take them, but it leaves me only
a mere trifle for my profits.' A servant stand
ing by took the fish, and the lady handed me a
quarter, and held out her hand for the change.
I first put into it a fivc-cent piece. She con
tinued holding it out, until I searched about in
my pocket for a penny. This I next placed in
her hand. 'So you've cheated me out of a
quarter of a cent at last,' she said, half laugh
ing and half in earnest; ' you are a sad rogue.'
A little boy was standing by. ' Here, Charley,'
she said to him, ? is a penny I have just saved.
You can buy candy with it.'
"As I turned away from the door of the
large, beautiful house in which that lady lived,
I felt something rising in my throat and choking
me. I had bitter thoughts of all my kind.
Happily, where I next stopped, I met with one
more considerate. She bought two hunches of
my fish at my own price?apoke very kindly to
me, and oven went so far, seeing that 1 looked
jaded out, to tell me to go down into her
kitchen, and rest myself for a little while.
Leaving my tub of fish in her yard, I accepted
the kind offer. It so happened that the cook
was making tea for some one in the house who
was sick. The lady asked me if I would not
like to have a cup. I said yes; for my head
was aching badly and I felt faint; and, besides,
I had not tasted a cup of tea for several days.
She poured it out for me with her own hands,
and with her own hands brought it to me. 1
think I never tasted such a cup of tea in my
life. It was like cordial. God Mess her! W hen
I again went out upon the street my headache
was gone, and I felt as fresh as ever I did in
my life. Before I stopped at this kind lady's
bouse, I was so worn down and out of heart,
that I determined to go home, even though not
more than half my fish were sold. But now I
went on cheerfully and with confidence. In an
hour my tray was empty, and my fish sold at
fair prices.
41 You do not know, ma'am," continued the
woman, 44 how much good a few kindly-spoken
words, that cost nothing, or a little generous
regard for us, does our often discouraged hearts.
But these we too rarely meet. Much oftener
we are talked to harshly about our exorbitant
prices?called a cheating set?or some other
such name that does not sound very pleasat.Mo
our ears. That there arc many among us who
have no honesty, nor, indeed, any care about
what Is right, Is too true. But all are not so.
To judge us all, then, by the worst of our das*,
is not right. It would not be well for the world
I if all were thus judged.''
MECHANISM, No. 1.?By Josiah Holbrook.
| Simplicity and vastness mark the works of
: God. These are especially the strong features
| iu the mechanism of the Universe. The term
! mechanism, iu the largest and minutest sense of
the word, presents a vast idea?a subject inei
haustibly rich, inexpressibly beautiful, and il
limitably useful. A telescopic and microscopic
| view of the subject is indispensable even to a
i limited comprehension of it. The mechanism
of the heavens is so vast as to require a teje-,
scope even to get a glimpse of it. The work of
infusoria, or fluoroscopic animals, is.wholly be
yond the power of the naked eye. Inexpressi
bly miuuto is vegetable mechanism, In thou
sands of forms, and beautiful when viewed by
a powerful microscope. Within a square inch
of surface in certain leaves of plants, a micro
scope has shown a hundred and seventy thou
sand openings or mouths for receiving carbonic
acid gas from the ail, to form the substance of
the plant?an important fact for farmers.
The animated universe, or living, moving
things, exhibit mechanism inexpressibly varied,
rich, and beautiful, both in their forms and mo
tions. A fish never moves a fin, a bird a wing,
a centipede a foot, a quadruped a limb, or a
human being a finger, without an exhibition of
some principle or form of mechanism. The
infinitely varied forms of natural objects, em-,
bracing animal, vegetable, and mineral crea
tion, are far beyond the comprehension of any
human being within the period of the longest
natural life. Abbe llauy, of France, spent his
whole life on tho subject of crystallography?
the forms and relations of mineral substance*.,
The most finished human architect, either in
ancient or modern times, though producing
works to be admired through ages, is a. mere
point, well-nigh a dark speck, when compared
with the great Architect of the universe. When
compared with the vastness, the richness, the,
beauty, the sublimity, the glory of the archi
tecture of the heavens and of the earth?the
orbits of the planets and the structure of leaves,
and microscopic work of insects?human archi
tecture is poor indeed.
While mechanism, in the broadest sense of
the word, has u stretch 100 far, and a division
too minute, for any human power, during any
human life, to comprehend, the elements of the
I whole are entirely within the reach of the child
of five, or even of three, years oLd. The most
important element is the most simple object of
human observation?a simple three-sided figure,
or equilateral triangle. Such a figure every
pupil in any school of five or five hundred scho
lars may form, at least approximate, any mo
ment when the opportunity should be afforded
by their teacher, simply by placing before them
slates and pencils, with permitsion to use them.
Several of these figures combined exhibit the
snow-flake. Combined in a different form, they
show the crystal of the diamond, of gold, Of
iron, of lead, and of nearly a hundred forms of
I mineral crystals.
The next most simple figure, the square, is
the next most rich and varied in its combina
tions. For human mechanism, it is eveu more
important than the triangle, and scarcely less
within the skill of the child.
By a short series of short articles on the sub
ject of mechanism, an attempt will be made to
show the importance to every human being of a
familiar acquaintance with its elements, and its
entire fitness for practical exercises in the pri-r
mary instruction of evei^ pupil the moment he
enters a school.

My home In not the name to me,
My childhood's home is changed:
Where is the brook I used to see,
The wood I often ranged?
Tho watch-dog. doting by the door,
That bounded at my call ?
Dear Hcenea that charm ad my soul of yore?
Not one remain* of all!
Around the hearth no chaira are drawn,
No merry shouts are heard,
No trap in laid upon the lawn
To catch the winter-bin!;
Old faces I have loved are gone,
My childhood's home is changed?
Ah, luckless fate of all earth-born?
Thus every tic's estranged!

Absurd Humor.?A piece of absurd gossip,
respecting the marriage of Jenny Lind and Bel
i letti, has been going the rounds of the newspa
pers for a month past; and as there seems to
be no hope of its dying a natural death, we fee!
ourselves called upon to mention it for the pur
pose of contradicting it in loto. We are author,
ized to state that there is not a particle of truth
whatever in the rumor. Signor Bellctti has
been acquainted with Miss Lind from the time
of her first appearance on the stage at Stock
holm, and she has always treated him with tho
cordial esteem due to a long-tried friend,
Equally untrue is the report, published in
one or two defamatory papers of this city, that
a personal rencontre took place between Signor
Helletti and a Kentuckian, during the visit of
the party to the Mammoth Cave. A number of
persons, who persisted in following the visiters
through all their subterranean rambles, rudely
i insisted on Jenny hind's singing for their grat
ification in one of the halls. This she politely
' declined doing, and it is probable that tho ru
mor had its origin in the malice of seme disap
pointed individual. We trust that the** idle
I stories will now ccasc, no matter how much
gossips may grieve at being obliged to Relin
quish them.?A'. 1' TVihnne.
