IRISH EMIGRANT SOCIETY.
Office, No. 1 lieadf Strut, New York.
IN consequence of the great number of complaint* which
have for along time been wade by Emigrant*, of frauds
committed upon them in the Bending of money to t
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 brandies of the Bank.
l'eroons 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 b? 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 8oclety 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
rloes required, the wages, and Uie 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 outrairo
committed on Emigrants, and will endeavor speedily to
apply a remedy. GREGORY VILLON, President.

NOTES ON NEW MEXICO?No. 17.
BY HENRY HARDY.
Though the immediate vicinity of the high
way out of Sauta Fe, save the few farms of
which I have spoken, is sterile and wretched to
a proverb, yet the scenery in the distance,
nearly all rouud the compass, partakes of the
picturesque in a high degree. Look which way
you will, you are hemmed in by misty moun
tains, each having its own distinct and impres
sive individuality. JBo large is the scale of the
panorama of which you are the centre, that
you travel for hours without seeming to affect
your distance from thoBe great masses tbat
frown down upon?thft subjacent plains.
for many miles lifter leaving these mighty walls
of Nature, you really appear rather to approxi
mate than to retreat from thorn?the illusion
arising, as I (suppose, from the greater breadth
of view consequent upon beholding not so much
the little details of the country about the moun
tain-foot, as a great region in which the moun
tain assumes a truer proportion. And then
again, there may be something in the exceeding
pureness of the air, which would seem to act
upon the apparent distance, like the water of a
pool in a crystal stream, suggesting a propin
quity of bottom to top much beyond what is
reolly the case.
The Sandia mountain is not less than sev
enty miles from Santa Fe, and yet at ten miles
from the town it would not be set down by an
inexperienced traveller at larther off than four
or five, to such a degree does space in that
country seem to be annihilated. Below this
mighty and frowning masa of eternal adamant
runs a parallel range of low, that is to say, ot
lower mountains, looking very much like a rank
of small boys standing in front of a body of
brawny and stalwart men. This lower range,
running off in detached masses, each partaking
considerably of the conical form, is called the
Gold Mountains, being the locale of the placers,
which some years ago engaged the busy atten
tion of the New Mexicans. The gold found in
these mountains is very pure, though not yet
discovered in Bulficieutplenty to make the steady
search for it an object with Americans. Al
though we hear the mineral wealth of New
Mexico much talked about, and even the sands
of Santa Fe streets credited with an admixture
of gold dust, yet no mining investments on a
large scale have hitherto proved profitable. An
enterprising American the year before last
opened a mine at very considerable cost, and
attended well to its necessary operations, but
he closed it after some months, not being able
to do more than just clear expenses.
I think it quite likely that in a region so
obviously volcanic, discoveries will lrom time
to time bo made, but at present no inducement
is held out to mining enterprise. Not only gold
but silver, aud others of the baser metals, have
beeu found in greater or less abuudance; but
nothing in the mining way i? now going on. It
is evident that iron must exist in inexhaustible
quantities throughout the country traversed by
the Raton mountains, and the detached eleva
tions scattered over the region east of ^ew
Mexico for two or three hundred miles from its
inhabited border. I have been told that the
mountain 1 noticed before, under the name of
the Buffalo Mound, consists almost wholly of
iron stone; I know that the ribbed heights of
the plains all around it do. Much of this stone
has the appearance of exceedingly pure iron
ore, though lrom the utter absence of wood or
| coal (for any thing yet known of the latter) in
I the neighborhood, there would seem to be no
means for working it.
| After travelling a number of miles, which I
should calculate by the elements of time and
rate of going to be nbout seventeen, we ar
rived at n fork in the road, and, as it was
after nightfall, determined to put up atanwicA?
i hard by on the left, which is often used by tra
I vellers as a stopping place. Its proprietor is a
Mexican of the better class, named Delgado, and
tuBnoe the plaoe goes by the name of
ranch*. The uncle of this man lives at a raur.ht
on the brow of an opposite hill, a mile and a
half off, separated by a narrow valley, threaded
by a meandering rill, which glories in the
title of El Rio Chicito. Our host's establish
ment was quite extensive, and being a fair
specimen of tlie better sort of habitations I will
somewhat minutely describe it. His residence
consisted of a largo adobe square structure,
with a suite of large and, internally, really tine
rooms, quite comfortable at all seasons, being
cool in warm weather and warm in cold. The
house is entered through a spacious portal
facing southeast, and its first room is a large
tola or lobby, perhaps fifty feet long by twenty
wide, which is used for various farm and family
purposes. In it you will see chests, trunks,
scythes, troughs, with sundry other farm and
household utensils, stowed away in the corners
or set nlong the wbIIs, with hdre and there a
heap of ear or shelled corn untidily strewed
about. Overhead you will ordinarily see, and
sometimes encounter with your hat, festoons
of sausages, chitterlings or muggets, hanging
from the rafters in various str.ges of desiccation.
Pieces of mutton, beef, or goat's flesh also adorn
the overhead region, interspersed with bunches
of garlic, onions and the pods of the perpetual
chili Colorado, or red pepper. The lobby is some
times used, amongst other things, as the dairy
room ; and then, what with the smell of sour
goat's milk, mingled with the aroma of garlic,
and the sundry odorifics I have hinted at above?
none of them looking a bit too clean?the reader
may be sure that one must have a stomach al
most as strong as a Mexican's to keep the gorge
in tolerable submission. For months after I
made acquaintance with the peculiar odor thus
compounded, I held a recollection of it so dis
tinct that when brought^ any circumstance to
my memory, my st<>uiaoh would undergo a
spasm of ntiusoa.
Leaving the sala, you ont^r on tho one hand
tho family sitting and dining room?on the
other, the cocina, or kitchen. On the other aide
of the main building is a room opening Out
ward into a second portal, and running the
whole breadth of the house. On the walls of
this room are hung many pictures, engravings,
and samples of needle-work, havihg for their
subject the figures of the Saviour, the Santuima
Yirgm, the Apostles, and other venerated per
sonages. This is the room in which ma?s is
performed at the occasional visits of the 1 adre.
The walls nre whitened with a wash of yetio, or
selenito, which becomes calcined by a slight
baking. As this easily rubs off, the walls in
the better rooms are generally covered to the
height of tome six feet with cheap calico, of the
staring, or bed-curtain patterns. The rafters
are generally bare, and often exhibit in their
intetttices a filling-in of eottonwood sticks, of
the rods of the sage-bnsh, to keep the super
incumbent earth of which the roof consists from
falling through. In those rooius which have a
fireplace it is situated immediately in one of
the angles, but does not on that account the
less perfectly warm and ventilate the ro?Il,<
Indeed, the interior of a well-furnished Mexl"
can parlor is one of the moat comfortable o
shelters, no matter how chill and cutting migut
be the wind or weather out of doors.
The Senores Delgado have quite a valuable
property in the little valley between their re
Hpective dwellings. It is capable of being irri
gated, and thus gives them grass, wheat and
corn, with some peaches and other fruits.
Around the bouse are a number of patriarchal
cottonwood trees, whose arms cast a protecting
shade over its Penates. But they have a great
distance to travel to get fire-stuff; 1 think
was told it some eighteen or twenty miles,
I not nearer thau the mounUins, or the cedar
skirted side? of the great canon between the
ranch and Pena Blajica, situated near the bank
of the Del Norte, fifteen or twenty miles oil.
the expense of supper, breakfast and lodging
for three, (we findiug nearly all except eggs and
chili,) and a bundle or two of corn-fodder for our
mules, was six dollars. Perhaps it was not
dear, considering the country we were in, though
in the United States one dollar would have been
a good remuneration for all wo got.
From Senor Delgado's, two roads are open
to the traveller down the Kio Abajo. The one
lies over the high table-land on the lelt, the
other follows the canon formed by the ltiu
Chicito. This is not always the same stream
that runs from Santa Fe?for the Kio Chicito
there often dries up a few miles below the city?
but is what in time of freshets is formed by a
junction of the Santa Fe with a stream rising m
the high lands to the southeast, and unitedly runs
to the Rio Grande. It is surprising what an ele
ment of cheerfulness is afforded the voyager in
this arid clime, where the greenest things are
the prickly pear and hirsute cactus, and oc
casionally the cedar-bush, by a little busy bab
bling stream, such as meanders along this vast
ravine. By its means alone can animal or
vegetable life be sustained, and hence it is that
far down the canon, on every spot capable o
affording even a scanty subsistence, huts are
posited, giving a homo to one or more fami ich
of the paisanuge.
On the right bank of the Btream, and about
seven miles below Delgado's, is an ancient
looking adoberbuilt church, for the accommo
dation of the neighborhood. It has a desolate,
woful look, and I believe has a sad history con
nected with it, telling of Indian surprises, and
priests ruthlessly murdered whilst officiating a
the altar. ?
The Presidential Tour.?The t harlestown
Free Press of Thursday gives an account of the
reception of their distinguished guests in that
region on Tuesday.
" The Mayor of Harper's Ferry, accompanied
by other members of the corporation, left for
the Point of Rock* to escort the President of
the United States, who had left Washington .in
the earliest train. On arrival at the Ferry,
1 amid the discharge of cannon, the Executive
was met by a deputation from Charlestown, as
an escort to our county seat, and to make
known the facilities of reaching the Shamiondale
Springs in the afternoon. ,
? The President, accompanied by the secre
tary of War and the Secretory of the Interior,
together with Mr. Corcoran, of Washington,
wert very courteously received by Major Sy
mington and Major lluger, and shown through
the armory and over the public grounds.
" On arriving at Charlestown, which was eai -
lier than expected by the citizens, (who
chiefly engaged at their meals) the sound ot the
whistle caused a large assemblage near the de
pot?and as the carriages drew up and received
the President and hiB company, three cheers
were given for him and for the Secretaries re
spectively,; and the cortege drew up a t Sappmg
ton's hotel, where, without alighting, the 1 resi
dent received the salutations of many of our
citizens, and exchanged nods with the little
boys who seemed to think that he might return
when they could not get as near to him as the i
widths of the pavement. The baggage collected,
i the whole moved off at a sober paoc to the
Springs, where hundreds were already assem
bled from the surrounding country, and where
in a short time the President and those who ?
had not already dined sat down to a fine dinner
amfd the strains of music.
"After dinned,'which was despatched with
out either speeches or toasta, (as bad been pre
viously understood,) the ladies were introduced
to the President and his suite.
'? In the evening, the ball at the Springs was
numerously attended. The scene was all gaiety.
The President left the room after a few hours,
but the dancing was kept up to an early hour
in the morning
?'On Wednesday morning the President was
waited upon by a committee of thirty gentle
men of tho town of Winchester, consisting of i
the mayor, recorder, president of the common
council, and others having been appointed by
the civil authorities of the town to wait on him
at Shannondale. They were received by the
President and his Secretaries in the ladies par
lor. The room was filled with ladies, ami the i
passages and windows thronged with gf"tle
men. The chairman of the committee, William
L. Clark, esq., addressed tho President substan
tially An the following terms:
ii i Jfr. President and Gentlemen of the. Celt net ?
44 41 am deputed by a committee appointed
by the civil authorities of the town of Winches
ter to communicate to you the resolutions of in
vitation and welcome to their town. In per
forming this grateful office, I take pjeasurt in ,
savin* that those resolutions arc a full reflec
tion of the public sehtiment. The citizens of
Winchester will hail with patriotic pride your
presence, sir, among them, as the Chief Maps
trate of this great republic, with that ot your
cabinet officers. They will evince to you and
then, their high admiration and regard. And
in proffering to you, air, and to them, the lios
totalities of their homes, they only anticipate a
sentiment which will rise up to meet you wher
ever you may be pleased to travel through this
ancient and venerable Commonwealth.
??To which the President in substance re
Pl,? ? I accept, air, with the expression of thanks
for myself and my official associates here, these
kind expressions of sentiment from the town o
Winchester. It will afford us great pleasure to
visit yonr ancient, town and mingle with
citizens. It is well known as long the residence
of Washington, and as the spot where repow
the ashes of one of the heroes of Bevoli
tion. I allnde to Oen. Morgan. It Wfta my
desire, sir, to have passed through your State
without any public manifestation, farther than
to mingle with your citizens and exchange with
them kind civilities. We seek relief from the
care# of official itation, and for that ywpot*,
air, we visit your gushing fountains of health
unci your surpassing scenery.
?< I have only again, dr, t0 rct,,rn *? ^ou an*
to the committee and to the citizens, for niyself
and those associated here with me, our thanks
aud kind wishes.' ?
" After dinner, the Presidential party re
turned to Charlestown to take the special train
that had been furnished to convey them up tuo
valley, and stopped a short time at the hospi
table residence of Andrew Hunter, esq-, where
they were introduced to "many ladies, who had
not been able to visit the Springs, as well as to
many of our citizens who bad been debarred
the pleasure of an introduction which hundreds
had gone miles to realize
?They then took the cars for Winchester
iimidst the enthusiastic shouts of the people,
with uiany good wishes lor their salety.
Fire Anniuii.atwii.?Adams &. Co., of this
city roccived by the last, arrival of the Pacifio
two'of these machines for extinguishing fire.
Through the courtesy of Mr. Sandtord we had
the privilege of examining them yesterday.
They are about the size of an ordinary coal
scuttle, made of sheet iron composed of a num
ber of cylindrical cases within one another,
weighing about twenty pounds, and easily han
dled by any person.
We copy from the London Times an account
of an experiment 011 a vessel on fire, before a
committee appointed by the Queen to witness
it: . . ,
"An interesting experiment was tried yes
terday with l'hillips's Aunihilator. The Wear,
of 160 tons, was freighted with tar barrels,
sugar hogsheads, aud other combustible mate
rials. Soon a dense smoke was seen issuing
from every corner, affording sufficient proof that
the fire was increasing under deck. After
fifteen minutes the hatches were opened, and
a much greater flame than one would wish to
witness at sea burst forth. Now came the. time
to put it out. On a signal from Mr. I hillips,
two machines were brought forward, looking
like iron watering-pots, and the gaseous con
tents poured down liberally upon the flames.
The effect was soon visible. The fire was grad
ually reduced, and in ten minutes was extm
gUWhcn we consider the immense sncrifice of
life and property by fire, we cuunot but consider
this a most valuable discovery. They are very
simple, easily operated, and what is better, (tor
the million) cheap and portable. Mr. Sandtord
intends to make a trial soon with his machines,
when we shall be happy to lay the result before
our readers.?Phila. 1'tnmy human.
Health Insurance.?The associations re
cently gotten up, for the purpose of insuring
health, are excellent institutions, and deserve
every encouragement. By paying a small s in
annually, every man can become a member of
one of these associations, which, in case of sick
ness, will secure to him a weekly income that
will be sufficient to meet bis wants aud place
biro in a Btate of independence that will keep
him from being a burden to his family and
friends. This is very desirable. Lvery work
ingman should have his health insured, for then
when accidents or sickness befal him, and he
can no longer earn his daily bread, he has a
store-house from whence his wants will be sup
plied.
Item*.
Congregationalism, which was scarcely known
fifteen years ago in Canada, and when there
were only four or five churches of the faith and
order in the provinces, is represented there uow
bv sixty-three churches, comprising 4,000 full
communicants, and congregations numbering,
it is said, no less than 16,000 persons. Mow
than sixty chapels have been erected, princi
pally by the colonists, who have in every in
stance refused government assistance.
There is a female now resident in Clark
county, Georgia, who is one hundred and tMrty

Mr. Henry Drayton, of this city, whose suc
cess as an operatic singer in Paris and in Lon
dou we have had such flattering accounts, from
time to time, since he left the Conservatoire in
the former city, is on the eve of coming to this,
his native land, to give his countrymen a touch
of his quality.?I'hiL Sun.
CATASTRornu.?At Cincinnati, on the second
Instant, Jacob and Frank Kirchmer, butchers,
were instantly killed, in consequence of^their
horses ruuning away with them. The Kuph
niers were twin brothers, and, what is something
singular, they married twin sisters, who now
remain to deplore the loss of their husbands.
As some Indies and gentlemen were ?lkinS
down south Water street, Chicago, one day last
werk one of the party came near stepping on
a huge rattlesnake, which made its ?Pr
ance on the side walk. It was rudely deat by.
This is the second visiter of the kind lately
found in the city.
Messrs. Hks*t>ict and Bmu.rrn, it is said,

I Parodi, it is said, is going to South America
with Patti, fitrakosch, and liauser. The/will
not stop short of Lima. The trip bids fair to
turn out a profitable one.
We sre deeply pained to learn that the Ber.
Dr. Olin, of the Methodist Kpiscopnl Church,
one of the most eloquent divines of the present
age, is dangerously ill.
Goto IS SotiT* Carolisa.?A piece of gold,
about the sixe and shape of a man s oot, * afl
found in Yorkville district, 8^., ? ???

by three persons during the last six months.
Catfish, weighing from fifty to one hundred
pounds, are seen daily in the Cincinnati market.
IlrsBA*T>i?.n Hit sourness. ? The Minnesota
papers are rejoicing at the ample and well hus
banded school-fund of that Territory. The
Green Bay Advocate says this fact should not be
referred to with Buch an air of triumph, because
they have also husbanded all the school mis
