IN consequence of the great number of complaints which
have for a long time been made by Emigrants, of fruuds
committed upon them in the sending of money to their
friends in Ireland, aud to aid ami protect the Emigrant,
the Irish Emigrant Society established a fund, deposited
in the Dank of Ireland, upon which they draw draft*,
payable at sight, at any of the branches of the Hank.
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
8ami: remitted.
There is a great advantage in purchasing the Society's
drafts?that the Hunk 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 ruspectable 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 i
apply a remedy. GREGORY DILLON, President.

I know a grove, a Hummer grove,
Where midday suu beams never fall;
By Nature consecrate to love
Fragrant and cool and silent all.
Silent, nave when, from orerhend,
Or right, or left, or all around,
From his mysterious leafy bed
The robin's welcome notes resound ;
Or soothing drone of idle bee,
Or insect call, or, sweeter still,
Pervades the ear, continuously,
The music of a gurgling rill.
Here, in this grove, when yonder sun
Sinks wearily in Wauba's tide,*
1 sit, and, tearful, think of one?
One whom I lovo o'er all beside?
One I adore?but dare not name,
Whom 'tis a crime to think upon?
Yet ohl I love her all the same,
And must till hope and life are gone!
And I could tell?yes! I could tell,
llow, once, it was not wrong to love;
And how wo threaded many a dell,
And how we haunted many a grove;
And hoyr I listened eagerly?
Breathless, enraptured?to each tone;
Only betraying by a sigh
How deep I loved, bow peace had down.
And, ah I I trusted. She deceived?
Not not such wrong she could not do!
I saw, her gentle bosom heaved,
And felt?oh! joy?the loved me loo I
Yet neither spake?we knew 'twas vain?
A vain, yet soul-entrancing dream;
Still, oft we mot, and oft again
Thought silently renewed the theme.
Wo parted; o'er the restless sea,
For many a lonely day and night,
My white-winged bark seemed painfully
To bear me from my Ella's sight.
Love yields to time, nor space; nor aught
Can e'er subdue his latent fire ;
Mine was not that by Fancy caught
From the low embers of Desire!
Thus, when long, weary months had pa^t,
Mid scenes full fair and strange to view,
And when my forest shores at last
Returned, this burning heart was true.
Columbia's white sand l>each arose,
Like a snow-cloud, upon the sea;
And all around forgot their woos,
And sang and smiled?tare only me.
One told me of a sire, that long
Had thought him cold on foreign strand;
And, too, the good man's stirring wroug,
Wrought him by one who craved his land;
And how he meant?I marked his smile?
To right that wrong, and claim?a brifle.
0 Uod! this marble soul, the while,
Would joy with him?but vainly triod!
, Another came, with eager word
Of hopes that beckoned on the slioro?
The moaning waves were all I heard,
Their voice was melody no more!
Yet could I turn my morbid thought
From Memory's engulphing deep,
Aud on this sliadeless brow I sought
What cause oould make my dark soul weep;
For, as his tones fell heedless on
The calm, the chill, unliving air.
Hit Itiok met mine?and swift were gone
The icy fetter* of despair;
And down this flushed and sunken check?
As welcome as the Summer flood?
Coursed the hot tears, and seamed to speak
Sweet soothing to my maddening mood.
The face I saw was as mine own?
Or, as mine own lx'forc the kiss
Of unavailing love was known
To seal the death, as birth, of bliss,
Ere we had patted?I would part
K'en now, in memory, from the past!
Peace! anguished soul?nor writhing start!
Thou shalt have rest, sweet rest, at last!
His days were many as were mine,
But sunlight shone from morn to eve?
The heart he wooed a sheltered shrine
The winds of fato might never grieve;
While mine?alas! what need to tear,
from the barred chamber of my coul.
The thwarted lore, that, rankling there,
Aroused would scorn my stern control
Ills rich brown hair, his arching brows.
Ills hazel oye?the very tome ;
lie could not tell how torrmc ploughI
The jxnxire cheek through ONE dear name..'
1 wept, I wept, to see the light
Within hit eyes that erst was mine?
What bird had shrieked on my birth-night!
Il'hat star of lore had ceased to sbtne!

Interesting Incident of sn American
Sailor?True Sentiment.
The following is an authentic narrative, which
we have been permitted to copy from an un
published journal:
A couple of sailors chnnced, upon a certain
4th of July, near Amsterdam, Holland, to get
into a quarrel with the police of the city, and
pitched iuto and upset about a dozen of them,
capturing the swords of some, and using the
same pretty freely upon the " officers of the
law and protectors of the peace." It was, of
course, a grave offence. In the fiist place, they
were Americans, and it was the 4th of July?
two things dreaded by monarchical govern
ments in Europe. It was a public and armed
resistance of the law of the land, aud the mat
ter was taken up with great seriousness by the
authorities. The punishment was not so severe
as anticipated, yet severe euough; for they
were sentenced to solitary confinement or ban
ishment, one for eighteen months, the other for
three years. The one who was sentenced for
three years was in love with, and engaged to,
a "black-eyed Sue," in Hoston, and, before be
ing sent to jail, asked an interview with the
director. The audience was given, when the
poor fellow told his tale of love; how he adored
"his girl;" how he had a picture of her, and
produced the likeness of a sweet, young-look
ing face. Ho wanted the director to keep it
for him. "If I como back in three years, I
will engage on a ship for Amsterdam, and como
here and get it; if I don't, why, send it to her
in Hoston?her name's inside." " But," said
the director, "why don't you keep it with you??
it will be safer with you, and such a consola
tion." Jack looked at the picture for some
time, his eyes filling up with tears?" No, no ;
I would like to see it, but I cannot bear the
idea of her portrait briny in a felon's cell /" By
gracious! when I heard that, my heart fairly
leaped into my throat. What refinement! What,
elicacy! Who, among all the gilded and be
decked lenders of ?'refined circles," would bo
capable of such heroism of the heart ? Who
but an American sailor would, under such cir
cumstances, have acted so truly, and with such
nobleness of sonl ? His trial took place before
my nrrival in Holland; and upon heariug the
story from an eye-witness, my interest was, of
course, keenly excited for him. The story soon
got out, and there was no little sympathy
among the fair sex aroused for one u'/io appre
ciated them ?u well, (a rare thing, by-the-way,
in liuropc;) and by the kind co-operation of
our charge, (Mr. Folsom,) the two sailors were
pardoned by the Dutch government. The last
4th of July I went to the jail, and, procuring
ndmiBfltan, ordered them a good dinner, and in
formed them that they would be liberated on
the 4th of September. They were very thank
ful, and seemed delighted, especially the "hero,"
who, when I asked him what port he would
like to sail for, blushed liko a girl, and said?
" Hoston!"
Mr. Fillmore on Slavery.
For the instruction of such as may desire to
know what Mr. Fillmore's opinions were thir
teen years ago, wo republish the following let
ter, now the subjcct of extensive newspaper
Buffalo, October 17, 1838.
Sir: Your communication of the 15th inst.,
as chairman of a committee appointed by "The
Anti-Slavery Society of the county of Erie,"
has just come to hand. You solicit my answer
to the following interrogatories :
" First. Do you believe that petitions to Con
gress on the subject of slavery and the slave
trade ought to be received, road, and respect
fully considered by the representatives of the
" Second. Are you opposed to the annexation
of Texas to this Union, under any circum
stances, so long as slaves are held therein ?
" Third. Are you in favor of Congress exor
cising all the constitutional power it possesses
to abolish the internal slave trade between the
States ?
" Fourth. Are you in favor of immediate leg
islation for the abolition of slavery in the Dis
trict of Columbia ?"
I am much engaged, and have no time to en
ter into an argument, or to explain at full length
my reasons for my opinion. I shall therefore
content myself for the present by answering all
your interrogatories in the affirmative, and leave
for some future occasion a more extended dis
cussion of the subject. I would, however, take
this occasion to say that, in thus frankly giving
my opinion, I would not desire to have it un
derstood in the nature of a pledge. At the
same time that I seek no disguises, but freely
give my sentiments on any subjcct of interest
to those for Avhose suffrages I am a candidate,
I am opposed to giving any pledges that shall
deprive me hereafter of all discretionary power.
My own character muBt be the guarantee for the
general correctness of my legislative deport
ment. On overy important subject I am bound
to deliberate before I act, and, especially as a
legislator, to possess myself of all the informa
tion, and listen to every argument tnat can be
adduced by my associates, before I give a final
vote. If 1 stand pledged to a particular course
of action 1 cease to be a responsible agent, but
I become a mere machine. Should subsequent
events show, beyond all doubt, that the course
1 had become pledged to pursue was ruinous to
my constituents and disgraceful to myself, 1
have no alternative, no opportunity for repent
ance, and there is no power to absolve me from
my obligation. Hence the impropriety, not to
say absurdity, in my view, of giving a pledge.
1 am aware that you have not asked any pledge,
and I believe I know your sound judgment and
good sense too well to think you desire any such
thing. It was, however, to prevent any mis
representation on the part of others, that I have :
felt it my duty to say thus much on this subjcct. I
I am, respectfully, your most obedient ser
vant, Millaiw Fillmore.

The Bi.oomkr Costcmk.?Grace Greenwood,
who has lately visited her friend the Hon. Mr.
Giddings, has written a letter to the National
Era on matters and things in general, from
which wo extract the following :
" Mr. Giddings amused me by telling of a
distinguished Judge, thereabouts, who, having
a young law student under examination, sol
emnly put to him the questions, ' Do you be
lieve in the rappings ? Do you go the Bloomer
" I havo, as yet, seen no specimen of the new
costume which I thought pretty. 1 think it
might be made very picturesque; and, provided
one had the independence to don it, and feel
comfortable in it, nothing could be better for a
journey to the Far West, a visit to the Mam
moth Cave, a trip to the White Mountains, or
for long morning walks in the country.
"As a costume for the parlor, or as a com
mon street dress, I surely could not advocate it.
But I do advocate the right of every woman to
dress as she pleases?to make herself beautiful
or hideous, as suits her fancy?provided no just
law of delicacy is violated. The cry of im
modesty, raised against the new costume, is, it
seems to me, most unfounded and senseless.
" Still more ridiculous is the accusation that
the Bloomers have unlawfully appropriated the
sign and symbol of masculine dignity and do- 1
minion. If, in truth, they had robbed you of
your heavy, ungraceful ' bifurcated garments,'
you ought to be inexpressibly relieved. But at
the worst, they have only made free with Mos
lem privileges, and I doubt not that the gentle
men Mohammedans, more gallant than trans
Atlantic Christians, will have a proper sense of
the compliment."
CathaMIKI Hayis.?Her figure is rather
above the medium, full and well 14 finished up,"
as the artists would say, to the lines of beauty.
Her hair is exuberant, curling and of a rich
auburn color ; in the suulight it would be golden. I
She has a large, soft, cerulean eye, a good- '
natured mouth, and a smile as radiant as sun
shine. In her conversation she betrays a plea- .
Bant wit, combined with the enthusiasm peculiar
to her countrymen. AH the portraits represent 1
her with an expression of sadness, a sort of
weeping-and-willowy look, as if she wore lis
tening to the broken waitings of the Harp of
Tara; but a more lively, joyous, sunny face,
wo have seldom seen, while her spirits seem to
flow and overflow in animated sympathy with
everything that is bright and good and beauti
ful around her. Take her, as Shakspeare would
say, for all in all, she is a flush pattern ot
womanhood?body, mind, and soul.?N. Y. Mir. |

A Youno and Beautiful Vocalist.?The
Baltimore American of this morning says:
IMiss Jenny Busk's Concert on Monday even
ing was attended by the beauty und fashion of
the city. >So large and brilliant an audience
must have been very liattering to the young
debutante. She was very pale, and we suspect
a little afraid?the tremendous applause should
have reassured her. It has been said such
powers of vocalization were never known iu a

the style of "her voice greatly resembles that

Trenton, N. J., October 1.?The great India
Rubber cases between Goodyear and Day camo
up for a final hearing yesterday before Judges
Greer ami Dickerson, of the United States Cir
cuit Court.
Thare were two actions, ono at law and the
other in equity, involving the validity of the
Goodyear patents. The defendant was ready,
und claimed a trial for the suit at law. The
plaintiff' filed an affidavit, and moved to post
pone the trial at law, and moved that the case
in equity, praying for an injunction, be taken
up and tried before the suit at law, on the
ground that the defendant, by certain contracts,
was estopped from denying the validity of the
Goodyear patents, thus evincing a disposition
to avoid the only action by which the validity
of the patent could be tested, which action was
first on the calendar and first in order for trial.
The defendant strenuously demanded a trial of
the action at law on the ground before stated.
A considerable debate on each side for two days
has finally resulted in the continuance of the
suits pending, in order that the testimony on
both sides may be completed by the 15th of
next February.
Time Wanted.?The Washington Republic
j says that " Mr. Owen is entitled to time, to be
I heard from officially by the Department, in ex
planation of his conduct. His case must bo
duly considered, and decided upon with delib
j eration." So wo suppose. The fifty prisoners
j at Havana wanted a little "time," but they did
I not get it, when, we doubt not, had our Consul
[ appealed to the Captain-General, " time" would
have been allowed. Wo do not doubt it, any
more than wo doubt that the non-appearance
of Mr. Owen was considered tantamount to the
approval of our Government of the execution.
Mr. Owen had abundance of "time" to act in
behalf of the remaining prisoners ; but he de
liberated and kept aloof. There has already
been too ihuch "time and deliberation" ex
pended upon the case. Action is wanted?it is
high "time" for action.?N. Y. llerald.
American Consul at Havana.?The Louis
! ville Courier, an able and high-toned Adminis
I tration paper, says : It seems that Mr. Owen,
| the United States Consul at Cuba, has at labt
i condescended to notice the torrent of indignr.
I tion that from all parts of the Union had been
let loose upon him, for refusing to see or to
make an attempt to commuuicatc with the gal
lant Kentuckians and their comrades, who
were shot at Havana by Concha. The Republic
publishes his card, " but without a word of com
ment," thus creating the inference that he stands
as indefensible after making his defence, as he
was generally execrated before it was known he
would attempt one. We now ask, whether this
man, who has outraged the American character
iu his person as a public officer, is longer to be
continued in the service of the Government?
AVhen the fifty Americans made an appeal to
him to visit them, that through him they might
communicate with loved friends and afflicted
families, for the last time, before being launched
into eternity, he should have either dona so, or
sold his life in the attempt. If his application
to the Captain-General had been made and de
nied, he should have gathered around him tho
folds of the fiag of his country, and bid them
reach his body ihroxnjh it, sooner than be pre
I vented from hearing the dying words of his
massacred countrymen.

The English Chitbch.?The Archbishop of
Canterbury has given great offence to a large

Flogging in the Army.?In a report to tho
English Secretary of War by Lieutenant Colonel
Jebb, the Inspector General of military prisons,
which has jnst been printed in a parliamentary
paper, tho subject of Hogging in the army is

in lieu of corporal punishment, has been benefi
cial in its operation, notwithstanding the con
trary opinion expressed by military officers.
