IN consequence of the great number of complaint* which
have lor a long time been made by Emigrants, of fraud*
committed upon them in the (tending of mouey to their
friends in Ireland, and to aid and protect the Emigrant,
the Irish Emigrant Society established a fuud, deposited
iu the Bank of Ireland, upon which they draw drafts,
payable at Right, at any of the branches of the Bank.
Peruoutt residing out of the city, by eucloeing In a letter
the sum they wish forwarded, with the plainly written
direotion 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 BOclety keepe an office at No. 22 Bpruce street, to
which Emigrants can apply to obtain situations for which
they are fitted.
Orders from employers in the country, stating the Rer

Tike Presidency and Vice PMiidtncy
The Democracy of Virginia?their choice for Pre
tidtnt and Vice President.
. Ltnciiboro, August 2, 1861.
To the Editors of the American Telegraph.
Gentlkmjcn: While the Democracy of other
States are making some manifestations towards
a candidate for the next Presidency, those of
Virginia, so far as any public demonstration is
concerned, seem disposed to " lie low and keep
In some of the Western States the honorable
Stephen A. Douglas, of Illinois, seems to be the
favorite, while in other quarters preferences
have been expressed for different individuals.
I witi venture to aMeit, howover, AwWftli that
I can see and hear, that Judge Douglas is de
cidedly the choice of the Democracy of this
State, and mainly upon the ground of availa
bility. He stands pre-eminently high ua a
patriot and as a statesman, and would, if put
in nomination for the Presidency, command the
admiration and support of the entire southern
Democracy. His magnanimity, as displayed in
his public career ; his liberal and patriotic views
of national policy, and his great ability, are
sufficient guarantees that he would, if elected,
I make a wise and safe President?a President
of the people.
Well, who is to be the Democratic candidate
for the Vioe Presidency 1 I cannot divine;
neither can any one else. I believe, however,
that the Democrats of Virginia are looking for
a candidate from this State for that office.
They have just grounds, I think, for so doing.
If the Democratic ticket succeeds, I should like
to see the offices of President and Vice President
filled with worthy men and true. The death of
Gen. Harrison, aud of Gen. Taylor, shows that
the people are electing their President when
they think they are only choosing their Vice
President. It is proper, therefore, to be as
careful in selecting a candidate for the latter
officc as for the former.
If capacity and merit arc to be consulted, we
know no man better suited either as a candi
date, or to fill the office itself of Vice President,
than William Daniel, jr., of this place; now
Judge of the Cour^ of Appeals. His many no
ble and generous qualities, not less than his
brilliant talents, render him universally popu
lar and esteemed. He is the son of Judge Wm.
Daniel, deceased, formerly of this judicial cir
cuit, has an extensive and influential relation
ship, represented this county in the Legislature
for several years with distinguished ability, and
would fill any office with credit to himself and
advantage to the public. If a Vice President
is to be had from Virginia, although he is a
thorough-going Democrat, (save his politics,)
there is no one I had rather Bee fill the office
than Jadge William Daniel; and I believe thiB
to be the Bentiment of the Democracy of this
part of Virginia. JwfBRSOH.
[Communicated, j
Mr. Corcoran.
To the Editors of the American Telegraph.
Gentlemen: The communication of " Com
mentator," in your paper of the fourth instant,
merits, perhaps, a passing notice. Although
not by profession (as Commentator is) the eulo
gist or detractor of any man, or any cabal, yet
1 deem the occasion a proper one to rebuke the
mendacity of this correspondent in his unjust
and gratuitous assailment of a worthy and dis
tinguished member of this community.
With the President, and the members of his
Cabinet, I have nothing to do; they are public
men, and their official and (it would seem) their
private acts are open to praise or censure as
the prejudices of their flatterers or assailants
may suggest; but I hold that when detraction,
either openly or covertly, invades the private
character of an estimable and highly honorable
member of any community, it is eminently due
io truth, justice, and common decency, that
public odium may attach where it properly be
longs, viz. to the skirts of the detractor.
Tor the life of me, I am unable to fathom the
motives of this "Common-fa/c, in view of his
repeated poignant attacks upon the several
member* of the Cabinet,- nor am I alone in my
bewilderment. Is your correspondent a disap
pointed office seeker, oris he an ultra Democrat ?
None of my friends, of either party, seem will
ing to claim him. However, be this as it may,
certain it is that " Commentator" is convinced
in his own opinion that a second " Junius" has,
in his consequential person, " come to judg
ment." ^
The insidious and miserable fling in his com
munication at W. W. Corcoran, esq., the emi
nent banker, and the high minded, honorable,
and patriotic citizen, has already received, as
it justly merits, universal execration in this
Fortunately, the people of this District know
from his infancy Mr. Corcoran, his history and
character, and your correspondent may rest
assured that this is not the sphere nor element
in which to breathe his slanderous innuendoes
ngainst a man immeasurably his superior in all
the constituent elements of a gentleman.
I'omposUy I Messrs. Editors, if 1 understand
the word, is a vice which emphatically attaches
to a ?? boasterthe citizens of this District will
judgo whether, either in his character as a pri
vate citizen or a wealthy banker, Mr. Corcoran
merita the epithet so gratuitously applied to
liim by the correspondent alluded to.
It is wholly unnecessary for me,_in this com
munication, to direct attention to the many
and munificent charities of this "pompous bank
er;" and equally idle would it seem to allude,
?it this communication at least, to his readiness,
%t all times, to contribute far more than his
share to any object whatever of a patriotic,
benevolent, or charitable nature. As a citizen,
no one has been more active and liberal, by his
enterprise and with his means, in beautifying
the national metropolis ; thus materially assist
ing in rendering the scat ot the General Gov
ernment more attractive, besides giving con
stant employment to scorcs of worthy, indus
trious artisans. In a word, those who know
Mr. C. best, esteem him the most, and such a
man ill-deserves the wretched jeers and scoffs
of your correspondent ycleped in this commu
nity Common-tater. Democrat.

Senator Riirtt, at a recent secession gather
ing in Charleston, announced his intention to
stump South Carolina in favor of separate State

to change his mind; and he says that he will

Mattem and Things th?t I Know.
I know that no family, compelled to hire ser
vants in this city, can live respectably, comfort- i
ably, or decently; and that the means of re- >
dress are entirely in the power of the^ united
heads of such unfortunate families. Concert
6f action will force hired servants to perform
their positive promises, engagements, and du- j
ties. At present I know that servants are the |
curse of housekeepers, and 1 know this should
not be.
I know that a regular attendance at churches
is no proof of honesty, virtue, charity, or Chris
tianity in the attendant; and 1 know others
know it.
1 know that he who boasts of hU courage is
a coward; of his honesty, is a rogue; of hit*
morality, Is unprincipled; of his religion, is a
hypocrite; and of his charity, he haB none to
I know, malgre Jefferson's celebrated asser
tion to the contrary, that all men are (not) born
equal, in any sense of the words?whether ethi
cally, physically, or otherwise; on that subject
verbutn sat.
I know that many clerks in the employment
of our Government, who are competent, and
who attend to and perform their duties rcgu
larly and faithfully, get less pay than others
who are incompetent and inattentive; and 1
know that this should not be permitted.
I know that many clerks in full pay, during
office hours, cfo but little except smoke cigars,
chew tobacco, read newspapers, and abuse those
to whom they are indebted for their pay. i
I know some very good persons who use to
bacco to excesB; and I know that a man has
just as much right to spit in my face as he has
to puff his pipe or cigar-smoke in my face; and
I know that I have just as much right to slap
his jaws for one as the other.
I know that for small, trifling, and insignifi
cant causes, people are apt to be punixhed in
what are called courts of justice; and that great
offenders or magnificent criminals too often es
cape?" verbum sat sapiente."
I know that worth, talents, qualifications,
business habits and constant attention to duty,
seldom entitle a poor clerk to promotion under
this free and glorious Government; and L know
'tis a shame that it is so.
I know that worthless, drunken, useless, de
based fellows, and others but little better, are
retained in office, or, if removed, are " restored
to favor" in a few days; and I know that it is
a disgrace as well as a shame.
I know thqt a man who borrows money at five
per cent, per month interest, will not be able to
pay the principal, after a while.
I know that a clerk with a salary of $1,200
per annum ought not to rent a house at $300
per annum, keep a carriage, a pew at cburcb,
a box at the theatre^Bend his family to an ex
travagant watering-place, keep a music and j
drawing master in bis house, smoke cigars at 1
five cents each and two dozen per day, drink
rich wines, toddy and punch daily, ^ and give ]
1 splendid parties and dinners. Yea,. sir, I know
all that; and if you please, sir, there are many
other things in this ollapodrida, lobscouse city
that , 1 Kl,ow.

" Making U at."?We learn from the Colum
bia (8. C.) Carolinian and Telegraph a fact
which is chronicled not only as extraordinary,
but as the first event of the kind, viz: that a
citizen of South Carolina has actually made a |
lot of baled hay. The Carolinian says it will
bo a proud day for South Carolina when the
enterprise of her citizens will cause non-inter
course in hay. Without subscribing to the idea
of non-intercourse, we think that if South Ca
rolina would make more hay and less fuss, she
would better subserve her own interests.

though of spacious dimensions and of the finest
marble, may be bought for less than the cost of
an average brick-house in the upper part of i
New York. The Duchess de Bern, mother of |
the Bourbou Pretender to the throne of France,
has bought one of these and generally inhabits
it; the Rothschilds own another; the dancer j

Portsmouth, (Ewu.,) July 12, 1851.
Dear Transcript: Your own Portsmouth and
Gosport, in Virginia, are in appearance as ia
name singularly like unto this Portsmouth and
Gosport in England, from which I scud you
this epistle. We arrived here at two o'clock
to day, and our first impulse was to visit the
dock yard, England's great naval depot. On
presenting ourself at the gate, we encountered
three policemen, who nonplussed us hy stating
that a foreigner could not bo admitted without
an order from the Admiralty at Loudon! Wo
hud provided ourself with no such order, and
had no friend in Portsmouth to whom we could
refer. The policemen were inexorable. But
we determined not to leave without seeing thia
English navy yard; ami so demanded that our
card should be presented to " Rear Admiral
Preeeott, C. B., Superintendent of the Dock'
Yard." It was immediately answered wic? an
order of admission, and an officer to condar.t us
through the workshops. Th^ first pj/fco^ihto
which we were shov?u the s>ail-ioit, and wa
were disappointed ' i t it, oitty about half as large
as the splendid loft your own Gosport, and
?iot as systematic and clean as Col. Cassell can
l>o6st. The journeymen receive between $5 and
!j$b per yreek. Next came the blacksmith shops?
four in number. Without prejudice, we can
say truly that they are not to compare in per
fection, order, and fine appearance with the
same description of shops in charge of Mr.
Charles Grice at your yard. The wages of the
men here are about $7 per week, for ten hours
a day. Shipwrights get from to $9 per
week. All the other trades about ?and
laborers from $3.50 to $4. After twenty years
" faithful service," a workman may, by the re
commendation of the Kenr Admiral, be placed
on the superannuated list with a pension of ?25
a year. The highest wages are paid to foun
ders, who do such work as is executed at Me
haffey's Iron Works. They receive between
two and three guineas a week. Two thousand
five hundred men are employed here; and how
do you suppose their " tim?" is checked ? So
entirely different from our own that I must de
scribe it. Every man has his number, which is
stamped on a piece of metal, the size of a half
dollar. They are spread out by a clork on
curious tables arranged for the purpose, and as
each man passes through the clerk's office or
shed, of which there are a -veral on the way out
near the gate, he picks up his metal ticket, or
number, carries it to his workshop and depot
ites it in a box in the master workman's pres
ence. When the bell rings for the dinner hour,
each man takes his ticket back to the clerk's
office, and replaces it in the spot from wheuce
he took it in the morning. On re-entering the
yard, from dinner, he again lifts his number,
takes it to his shop, leaves it with the master
workman, and at the evening bell-ring again re
places it in the clerk's office. And the same
thing every day.
You see, the operation is very plaiu, very
quiet, and very effective. All the numbers re
maining on the table show the absentees;
while, of course, the number taken up show
the men at work. If a man neglect to lift his
number, or to replace it, lie is not allowed
"time," although be may prove that he lias
deen at work. With some exceptions all these
men may be considered "under arms." They
are drilled twice a week inside the walls. There
are five thousand regular troops and eleven
hundred marines in the fortifications around
Portsmouth and Gosport. A couple of new
forts are in progress of erection ; the immense
expenditures on which are justified on the score
of protection for the almost incalculable value
of the property at this great naval station. The
extent of the yard exceeded all my expectation ;
and the number of ships in ordinary and on the
stocks utterly amazed. Think of four miles of
ships ready for almost immediate commission !
Lord Nelson's ship Victory, on board which he
was killed at Trafalgar, lies off the yard as the
flag ship of the port captain, Admiral the Hon.
