IN consequence of the great number of complaints which
have fur a long time been uiuUe 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 Kmlgrant Society established u fund, deposited
in the liank of Ireland, upou which they draw draits,
payable at sight, at any of the branches of the liank.
Person* 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
draft*?that the liank haw a branch in each of the princi
pal towns in Ireland, and thug the losses by discount, and
otherwise, are avoided.
Tiie Society keeps an office at No. 22 Spruce street, to
which Emigrants can apply to obtain situations for which
tijey 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 far 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.

I "jtatiLl" If so, pray tell me what?
My little purse no larger's got;
I ppeul',lie 'lay in honest toil,
And read and wijU by " j?i*uigl?t oil."
I "paid!" No "Progress" can I make,
No Summer recreation take;
I stay at home, aud there review
The nothings that our great ones do.
Nor can I think my situation
"Will mend in this Administration,
However much my truthful rhyme
May aid in patching up the time.
At least I have no office yet,
Though soon I'll make the nation's debt
To Plutarch Puffer large indeed:
But merit, here, can't have its meedt
Reflecting more, I scarcely think
I'd let my iiulependence sink
So low as offices require;
To spread my doublet on the mire,
As Raleigh did, that Majesty
May pans with dainty footstep free!
I wouldn't even my threadbare coat
To such vile purposes devote!
60 much for matters personal;
And now the Progress I recall,
Now follow fast the flying train,
And "Richard is himself again!"
The cars arrived, that afternoon,
At Charlestown?aud arrived too soon,
For none at depot gave them greeting?
It happened all the folks were eating.
When engine whistle loudly poured
The tidings, each sprang up from board,
Ran out with knife and fork in hand,
To see the magnates of the land,
And 1eouUl have shouted, but, awhile,
Could only "grin a ghostly smile;"
So full their mouths of bread and butter,
No salutation could they utter.
Howe'cr, Ills Excellency knew,
Though duuib their mouths, their hearts were true,
And did himself congratulate
That all were in such thriving state.
"Ah, see !'* he said, to Banker near,
'?What charming evidence is here
Of Whig Administration! See
How much the country owes to me!"
Erratum.?The 39th stanza yesterday should havo
" And shouted loud the happy throng."
