I r N confluence of the great number of complaint* which
A have for a long Lime been made by KuiigrauU, of frauds
committed upon them in the sending of money to their
fnenda in Ireland, and to aid and protect the Emigrant,
the Irish Kmigrant Society enUblbbed a fund, deposited
in the liank of Ireland, upon which they draw drafts,
payable at night, at any of the branches of the Hank.
Persons residing out of the city, by enclosing in a letter
the Hum 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 Hank has a Dranch 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 (treat, to
which Emigrants can apply to obtain situation 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 outran
committed on Emigrants, and will endeavor speedily to
apply a remedy. GREGORY DILLON, President.

to give confidence to those who may not have tried It, we

name as a recommendation to tanners in general. To all
who know Mr. Z. C. Byon this would be sufficient; but all

granted us this privilege. If it were necessary we could
fill a newspaper with testimonials; but where ail who use
are pleased we deem it uncalled for.

The human mind ig strange, indeed I
Whereof, in witness : liere we read,
The President and party ate
An early breakfast; now 'twas late,
In fact, approaching night, and yet
No edibles did either get;
But change, excitement, thought, combined,
And each was satisfied with?mind!
TIs true?and should bare long been told
A very good oollation cold,
And also handsome dinner hot,
The Harper's Perry people got
ltoady, and offered; but, alas!
We know a torrow came to pass,
To wit, the missing Drum, which beat
From merry banquet sad retreat I
Poets, chameleon*, live on air,
And seem to find it dainty fare;
Still, one will sing, the other show,
In many-colored drees, a beau 1
But politicians, baukers, ladies,
And all whose most laborious trade is
To scheme, make money grow, or kill?
Why, dine they must, and dine they will!
And so, at Shanuondale arrived,
Each was lnstant/orterf and knir<ed,
And not a single toast was heard,
And no one spokea single word.
Again 'tis my unpleasant task
To snatch away a printer's mask,
And plainly to the world disclose
The falsehood of his flattering prose.
He says: "'Twas understood before
That speeches would be made no more,
Nor toast proposed"?thus signifying:
"With Presidential wish complying!"
"With Presidential wish!" Oh, dear I
Tho truth Is seen by readers here :
80 hungry were they "all and each,"
There was no chance for toast or speech I
All the while wos music playing;
Oft the while were soft eyes saying
Sweetest things to eyes of others;
Oft tho while were "anxious mothers"
Watching daughters, "anxious" quite, too:
Oft the while?and wasn't it right, too?
Lady-brave was looking over
At a tall, moustachoed lover?
Lover, or, in sooth, he seemed so,
For his little peepers beamed so;
For a little blush appeared
Just above his black, black l?ard?
Ever, whon our lady's beauty
Shone upon him!?True to duty,
Sandy's knife and fork were beating
Time with Excellency's eating
Banker, Drum, the fame. 'Twas ended:
Thus six hundred feet ascended
Up the stairway to the Ball-room?
What a crowd for such a small room!
Ne'ertheless, they danced around it,
Till the morning stupid found it
Till the floor was strewn with roses,
Sugar-kisses, rhyming posies?
Till the servants, few In number,
Sank away in corner slumber
Till the red on cheek of Julia
Had a tint that ioat peculiar!

Chapter III.?Thb Prr-wic Party.
1 Annie Bell consented to go ; and, as old John
had predicted, as soon as they heard it not one
I of the "sugars" would stay behind. Annie
Bell was the gentlest little " blonde" in the
" garden of Virginia." Such deep, deep, deep
blue eyes you never saw; such sunny tresses
never danced on the wanton breeze as showered
about her snowy shoulders. Such beautiful
arms?so round and full, yet prettily propor
tioned; such a "gimpie waist" and such a
"milky han'" with which she spread out her
bright green riding-habit, that cruelly hid one
of the prettiest, lightest feet that ever tripped '
the heather around Moorfield. All the hamlet
was out admiring; and many a happy tear
trembled in the eyes of doting parents as they
beheld their sons or daughters, and listened to
the whimpered admiration of their neighbors
The good old women agreed that " there worn't 1
a handsomer lad than Ned Berry in the State |
0' Virginia." "Just look," they would say,,
" how ne sets his horse, so straight and easy ; I
an' what a sweet nateral curl his hair has tookj
an' his 'heavenly whiskers' as the gals calls
'em; and his fine teeth?when he smiles some
times. He looks so strong, an' he's got a eye .
like a eagle. I think poor Annie stands a slim
chance agin setch a voice an' setch a eye as
Ned Berry's got. I know ef I was young I
would ?and this was the general female opin- '
ion of Moorfield Hamlet. There were others,
too, in the party that camc in for their share of ,
the praise and comment. Ilarry Lee, with
Kffie Bradley nestled up close to him, in the
buggy, Effie looking "dreadful skeered," as the ;
host of the White House says, but very pretty;
her black eyes directed confidingly towards
Harry, who was whispering her something
probably trying to overcome her fear of the
fortune-teller of the Golding Gorge, whom all
the countryside pronounced a witch. Whatever j
it was he was saying, Harry's eyes were ,
cast down, and he was blushing furiously; 1
perhaps he felt folks were looking at him?or,
maybe, just then, he overheard the remark one
of the patriarchs of the hamlet made?and an
arch patriarch he was, always joking the young
folks ? that "ho did think that young dog,
Ilarry Lee, tried to get the narrowest buggy in
the hamlet, feored he couldn't git olose enough
to pretty little Effic Bradley!" Whether the
charge was true or not, we don't know; but
the buggy was uncommonly narrow, and the old
man's joke told, as a half suppressed laugh
attested. Old John came out of the White
House?which was at the lower end of the vil- j
lage?jumped in his long, sky-blue wagon, with i
two donk .es attached, and verily they seemed
to have a substantial load to draw, by the way
in wb'.oh they lay to it, or, as John says,
" ?^>>ad themselves;" aud, in as short a time
j ns ue could manage, joined tl^ party at the
I wiring, around which it was assembled. Pre
sently the clear, sonorous notes of a bugle?the
cxpected signal?rang back from the adjacent
wooded hills; shortly after, the first bar of
" Away, then, to the mountains"?and then
nothing was to be seen of the party but a cloud
of dust that obscured the hamlet?while the
clattering of hoofs and swift rattling of wheels
came from the direction of the gap in the hills,
the first turn in the road to Goldiug Gorge.
Chapter IV.?Seneca Chasm.
On they dashed along the winding road?one
time on one side of the streum, and, crossing
a ford, occasionally with some small degree of
danger, when would be heard a suppressed
" screech " or two, not from the carriage wheels,
?then upon the other side for a few rods ; and
over again, as singular, and probably as plea
sant, a route as man ever traveled ; on they
went, now fast, now slow, until they arrived at
the foot of the bluff, where is the most perilous
ford on the journey. Luckily, the stream was
low, making the crossing comparatively easy ;
and, having all gone over, they paused to view
the immense rocks heaped upon the summit of
the bluff, which distinctly and curiously resem
ble a Running Deer and a Crouohing Panther,
by which names they are colled. Off they go
again?occasionally a hearty laugh ringing
above the sound of hoofs and wheels, or the
mellow blast of the buglo rebounding from the
rocky precipices around, and dying by inches
upon the water. Meantime, the " Fire Cliff"
slides. imperceptibly into view?its summit
blazing with a tierce red glare, and its incense
to the Infernal One, black as his own dingy
majesty, rolling heavily away towards the lux
uriant forests adjacent. Now the laugh grew
seldomer; and many a bright eye was fastened
upon the Fire Cliff with an obstinate feeling of
superstitious awe which tho light sallies of their
male companions could not remove. In vain
the bugle pealed out?
" Away with melancholy!"
For Ned Berry hadn't got further than that,
ere Annie pinched him on the arm, and, with
an attempt at a smile, bade him
"No doleful changes ring!"
and Ned was obliged to do as Handy Andy did,
" bottle up his music." Almost in silence tho
short intervening distance was accomplished;
even the horses seemed to participate in the
dread that appeared to have crept over the
I hitherto noisy little party, and snorted and
snuffed inquisitively as if they doubted but
there was brimstone in the breeze. Presently
the party stopped at the mouth of Seneca
Chasm, and, dismounting, proceeded to explore
that fairy-like and indescribable palace of na
ture, glancing in all the gorgeous hues of the.
rainbow. By degrees, familiarity with their
unusual situation wore off the awe that had
possessed the timid girls; and several were
heard to declare they would like to live in that
beautiful place, if they only thought the Witch
of Goldiug Gorge didn't come there to work
her charms, as they said she did, when her
burnt-offering had gone out on the Fire Cliff.
Just at the conclusion of these expression*,
such an unearthly sound reached their ears;
now like the shrillest north wind through a
key-hole ; now like the rumbliug sound pro
duced by the wet finger on n window pane;
now like the finishing bray of an asthmatic
donkey: such a jumble of strange, disagreea
ble sounds invaded the hearing of the wonder
ing party, that those of them most alive took to
their heels, exclaiming, " The Witch, the Witch,
she's coming!" while the rest were momenta
rily rooted to the spot. When they emerged
from the Chasm, the laugh was long and loud,
at tho discovery that their shock was produced
by the musical essays of Honest John Muddler,
with whom the bugle had been left for the call
to dinner. The Chasm had made the most of
jts thousand echoes. Old John was leaning
i against the trunk of a giant sycamore, both
legs spread out like a pair of dividers ; the
I bugle in bis left hand, which he eyed compla
s oently askance ; and wiping his face?purple
j from hi? exertion*?with an enormous yellow
silk handkerchief. The table was luxuriously
spread under the shade; and knives and forks
rattled, and cider and %oda-water and cham
pagne corks popped; and solos and duetts re
sounded for one or two happy hours, when the
company again separated into groups to plea
santly loiter away the afternoon.

[Communicated. ]
Democrats In Ofllce.
To the Editors of the American Telegraph.
Gbntlemen : In your paper of the 23d ap
pears u letter from " C. B.," covering another
from an "ultra Whig," addressed to the Presi
dent of tho United States on the 20th April
last, and quoting an announcement from tho
Baltimore Sun of the same day, which an "ultra
Whig" pronounces truthful. The announcement
as it appears in the letter of an "ultra Whig,"
communicated by "C. 1).," is in these words:
"Appointments, ?c.? Washington, April 28.?
Judge Williams, (Democrat,) of Michigan, has
heen dismissed from the Land Office, and Wm.
Nourse, of Wellington, appointed in his place.
Lucas, a Whig editor, of Illinois, and Reuben
M. Whitney's son, have been dismissed. Stanly,
of North Carolina, hns also received notice of
dismissal. Vedder, of Illinois ; Harris, of Penn
sylvania, and Randall, of Maryland, all Demo
crats, have had their salaries raised $100 each.
Thompson, of Alabama, (Whig,) has had hia
salary reduced $100."
Some of the statements contained in theabovo
announcement are incorrect; and that the error
may not be heralded to the world that Demo
cratic officials are receiving great favors at tho
hands of the present Administration, I hasten
to corrcct it. It is true that Mr. Randall's
salary was raised about that time, as stated;
but to make a complete story, something must
be added. In November last his Balary was
reduced from $1,400 to $1,200, and the $200
taken from him added to the salary of a Whig
clerk newly appointed, and an assistant bookkeeper
only, (Mr. Randall being a principal bookkeeper
at the hend of a division. The palpable injus
tice of this thing being brought to the notice of
the Secretary, and a promotion being about to
be made, he added $100 to Mr. R.'s salary.
And this is the promotion which " one of the
rank and file" alludes to. If in November next,
in summing up his account for the year, he does
not find a clear loss of something more than
$100 from this promotion, he is not as good
an accountant aB I take him to be.
The writer is very careful to collect cases in
which Democrats have been promoted, but stu
diously avoids mentioning those in which they
have been rateed. Not a few instances of this
sort have occurred in the Land Office. I can
point the writer to one that occurred, in tho
very division over which Mr. It. presides, at
the same time that his salary was reduced;
which operates as more than an offset to hia
wonderful promotion. Rut this was not thought
fit to be chronicled, perhaps because $100 of
the sum taken away wis not restored. This
gentleman, who has a large family, had his
salary reduced from $1,200 to $1,000?thus
leaving him the only bookkeeper (perhaps there
is one other) who receives so small a sum.
It is true, too, that Mr. Yedder's salary was
raised from $1,000 to $1,100 ; but if qualifica
tions are entitled to any weight, nowadays, it
was much less than he deserved. All the gen
tlemen above alluded to are competent and faith
ful clerks.
Again: we are told that Mr. Stanly, a Whig,
received notice of his dismissal; but Mr. S. is
not outy?/, and, I apprehend, the notice is about
I all he will receive for some time to come.
The announcement further states that Judge
Williams (Democrat) was removed, and William
Nourse appointed in his place. It fails to tell
us, though, that Mr. Nourse was a Whig?a
Whig, indeed, but not an "ultra Whig," like
one of the "rank and file;" for, when Judge
Williams's place was offered him, he refused it,
until assured that he had not been removed to
make room for him. Such instances of gene
rosity, so rare, now when all is selfishness, de
serve to be recorded.
I address you this communication, Messrs.
Editors, for the purpose of correcting the mis
statements in the above announcement, as far
as I am acquainted with tho facts. Heaven
knows that the burdens Democratic officials
have to bear are severe enough, without the
efforts of outsiders to make their taskmasters
more oppressive.

of the statti of parties:

certain as auy thing in the future can be, that
the Whigs must yoi finally adopt Gen. Scott as
their only arrtilable resource."

With the true wife a husband's faults should
be sacred. A woman forgets what is due to
herself when she condescends to that refuge of
weakness?a female oonfidante. A wife's bosom
should be the tomb of her husband's failings,
and his character far more valuable in her esti
mation than his life. If this be not the case,
she pollutes her marriage vow.
