IN couaoquenoe of the great number of complaints which Uavo for u long tiuiel*>eu made by Emigrants, of frauds committed upon them in the sending of money to their friends in Ireland, and to aid and protect tint Emigrant, ? the 1 rish Emigrant Society established a fund, deposited ' in the Bank of Ireland, upon which they draw drafts, payable at sight, at any of the brunches of the Unnk. Persons residing out of the city, by enclosing iu a letter the sum they wish forwarded, with the plainly written direction to whom and where it is to be paid, will hare the same remitted. There is u great advantage in purchasing tlif^ Society's drafts?that the Bank lius a branch in oach of the princi pal towns in Ireland, and thus the losaei' by discount, and otherwise, are avoided.

W?r7a-. i^.Th.B^Tnd 'I ho exhibition in the Crystal Palace sc-ims to ll!ld its orig?n with Prince Albert and some tavam with whom he is associated, and with whom he consults. Whether the idea, originated with him, or was suggested by others to him, is of little consequent, so far as his i own reputation is concerned. In either case he 13 entitled to great credit. He has added a wreath of fame to his previous honors, wlilch lew princes, comparatively, have had either the opportunity or the disposition to obtain. 1?he purpose was a benevolent one, and in koe ping with his general character. It seems to have been reluctantly adopted by the British minis try, and only under the impulse of Albert's po sition na prince-consort. They could not run i the, risk of offending the Queen, in the present | state of parliamentary majorities, as to do so ! might turn the balance against them upon the first occasion of important defeat. They know by the history of England, the serious effects of a Queen's resentment, or even that of one ! near the person, aud possessing the ear of I majesty. Lord John Russell is a g00d histo rian, and has himself written well. He knows the consequences that have attached to spilling a cup of tea on a lady's gown, and those of spreading a costly garment for a lady's feet. But after being forced to take up the pur pose, the British ministry proceeded with a tolerably good grace and with general wisdom in carrying it out. Proposals for a plan of tho building were published, and two hundred and forty-five plans submitted for examination, these came from different individuals of dif ferent countries. Mr. Paxton, gardener of the I?uke of Devonshire, proposed glass. Hesita InH ^ "luctance were> by hi* able arguments and sketches, changed to approval. In the hot-houses of the Duke he had learned the properties or powers of glass, and was, by his native genius, able to expound them. The materials for the building, principally of glass and iron, were to be collected, and per sons found capable of constructing it safely and skilfully. In England they were not wanting. It was built at a cost of over 79,000 pounds sterling, or upward of $382,800. The building proved, when finished, well adapted to the great object in view; and on the first of May, 1851, was opened. Appro priate quarters had been assigned to different countries, and the arrangements in this respect were highly judicious. The Russian autocrat and the American republic were each furnished with accommodating ppace. They had, as had all others, a fair field for this intellectual and I mechanical conflict. There came to that arena the Russian, to show his progress from the age in which, in a certain sense, it had begun?the age of Peter the Great. The proud descendant of that monarch sent forward the proofs of mechanical skill, such as the arts afforded which have been cultivated in his country since the time of Peter the sbip-carpcnter and shoe maker?for in his zeal to introduce the arts into Russia, Peter the Great learned both these arts. The American Republican was there with the products of his skill and intellect, and some of liis raw materials. Some strong argument was to be deduced from the articles exhibited, of rela tive mutual progress in the respective countries, and iu which of them moral and political insti tutions had been most promotive of human ad vancement. The monarchies were exultant; the great body of the exhibitors were monarch ists, as were nine-tenths of the judge#; there wn? not tho lonst room to suspect any bias to ward any production or invention of a republic; and if it at all succeeded, it must be by the mere force of its own merits. Those going thither, clad in the garments of a democracy, were as uncouth to the eye of the vast majority of the spectators and judges as Ulysses in rags to the eyes of the suitors on the festal day, when the hand of Penelope was to be won by him who could draw the bow of the renowned chieftain. Tho feeling with which the American contribu tors were received and viewed is well described in the homely but vigorous lines of Punch: " \ ankee Doodle aent to tnwn His jronda for exhibition; Every body ran him down, And laughed at bis position." If. then, in the sequel he should bear off any great prize, it would be from no doubtful cause; it would be in a case as clear as sunshine. Pal mam qui meruit ferat would be truly said of all laudation he might receive, and of every medal given him. Days and nights passed in which the porcupine quills of the press wcro fretfully thrust at the Americans, who sometimes no doubt were irritated and wounded. The yacht America was probably not regarded as more likely to win the race than the American reaping machine was deemed worthy a prize of the first I class ! This last, after grave deliberation, and consultation no doubt, with British or other me chanicians, tho Timet described previous to trial as a hybrid between a chariot, a carriage and a wagon. That journal also described the Ameri can ploughs with similar ludicrous epithets and jeers. But the flippant sayings of national pre judice or inadequate intellect do not pass mus ter with men of real science; nor does the man of genius and experience, who is really a pro found inventor, hide his head for the laugh of such inferior critics as ho has often to encoun ter., The Americans did not run away from the great exhibition, although by these prelimi nary displays of British courtesy they were invited to do so! They might safely appeal, in consciousness of good intentions and utilitarian results, from tho diatribes of the press and the censorious surmises of the crowd, to those in telligent and impartial men who constituted the jurors. The day came for real trial, and in all inven tion and skill of the greatest practical utility we will not claim tb^&t the United States were superior, but we will, claim and insist, by the record, that they were equal to the foremost. The American ploughs were at a premium ; the American reaping-machine received a medal of the first class; McCormick, the inventor, (a native, we are proud to say, of Old Virginia!) was exalted into an intellectual and moral hero ! The pocket nerve of England was touched, and she responded with a voice that reached the Timet and all its coadjutors?and they retreated with the best possible grace I But the American exhibitor# held in reserve some further achievements : " Ono venturous game this hand has playedito-day ; Another, princes, yet remains to play. Swift an the word the whizzing arrow sings, Aud bears thy fate, Antinous, on its wings!" Swift through the ocean wave, at British challenge, glides the yacht America, and dis tances all competitors ! Even British mortifi cation was drowned in British admiration at thia victory. It was so unexpected, and in a point in which British feeling is peculiarly sen sitive ! The flag that for a thousand years had braved the battle and the breeze, was consid erably lowered. We do them the justice to say that their deportment on this occasion did them great credit, and is a strong proof of merit in themselves. Let the applause they abundantly bestowed on the America check in us all feelings of hostile exultation. But in this brief summary let us not omit Colt's revolvers. These must prove to the au tocrat of tho North that although the armies of Russia have been numerous, and her military commanders thick as leaves in Vallambrosa, the Russian institutions are not favorable to inventive genius, however auspicious they may be to imitation ! And the nations generally represented at the great Fair may recognise more of truth than melody in Punch's lines? "Your gunsmiths of their skill may crack, But that again don't mention; I guess that Colt's revolvers whack Their very first invention 1" [From the Commercial Bulletin.] WO! BY LEWIS P. THOMAS, KSQ.

[Concluded.] Now, when I thought thnt it was possible for Gottlieb to love as strongly as myself, and to love the same object, I was struck with terror. The studious boy could not rival tho bold, hand some hunter in his gay dress; for he was a man likely to win where he would, and I shrank from the" idea of tho unworthy rivalry that might thus ensue. That, at least, I would have nothing to do with. This day would I know my fate?that hour I determined to myself thnt | 1 would tell to Nina all my love, my hopes, and my fears, and she herself should choose. These thoughts overpowered mo. What if she should really love Gottlieb best ? What was to , bcoome of me in that event ? Shut out from the love-light of her countenance forever, what 1 could recompense me for my great loss ? what heal the vast sorrow I must necessarily feel ? Suddenly I found myself under Nina's win- | dow. I heard her voice singing one of the songs I had taught her, and its tone made inc thrill from head to foot. I could not have | spoken a word to her then had tho universe been at stake. 1 could not have stood in lier presence, had it been to save my life. The awe and the dread of that moment was enough to , overwhelm me. I hastened away, with tho voice still ringing in my cars. | I went into the woods, and sought the dark, sombre pool, where the lilies grew, and my heart was as heavy and sad as the pool itself was still and silent, though at other times it nsed to speak to me in its own figurative and suggestive language, and a chill like a breath from a charnel-house made me shiver. Oh, my heart! my heart! was it not a foreboding ? I gathered the lilies, sat on the bank, and placed them beside me. I waked up from a reverie into which I had fallen, and they were withered and dead, their beauty gone, their odor still remaining, like a memory ; u mat ? me very sad. ?nd 'Nina's lUies wcrTdead',"and I could not throw them ^ They died, and an hour after I gathered more. They were white, pcrfect, beautifu . They were without spot or stain, and I smiled as I said to myself, <'they are like my peerless Nma, and my heart then rose to my throat. 1 grasped the air, and sobbed as I saw the radiant yiaioa vanish. 1 gathered more. I tied them together with, a ribbon that Nina had once given me with a locket in which she had placed a ringlet of her silken huir. That I wear yet, and it will go with me into my coffin. I roBe and walked sndly out of the forest, nnd found myself once more under Nina's window. Her voice waa still thrilling through the chamber; it camo clear nnd tweet into the air, and mingled with the song of the linnets in the mulberry tree. I leaned my head on my hand, and, casting my eyes on the lilies, found they were fuding. The flowers seemed to have loBt their vitality that day. Why, I did not care to ask. I took out my bouquet?my withered pansies: they were " lieart's-ease," but not to me, for my heart was ill at ease. I laid the lilies on tho window-sill, and left the spot. 1 knew she had them, for, as I went away, 1 heard her voice say?"Karl, is it thou?" and I trembled. Her " voice was Boft, gentle, and low, an excellent thing in woman," as a great writer says; and I felt its truth in all its power. The day went by and I was restless, and I wandered forth again. \ es by the forest fountain, cavcrned by the umbrageous trees? while tho waters bubbled?while the leaves clattered ? while the birds sang?while God made human hearts glad?while calmly, so lemnly, I enjoyed the quiet beauty of that grand sacristy?there I suddenly saw them twain? Gottlieb and Nina. lie was leaning against a rock, bare-headed-? his good gun slung on his shoulder?his eyea fixed on Nina's face. Oh, Nina! Nina! how that face of thine then fascinated, for I?I? alas! 1 can remember it now; and?but this is not to the purpose. It was all light that face was then. It waa all love ! The eyes poured forth the feeling? the lips conceived the expression. What fata carried me then to the fountain? She was placing a flower in his hat. She waa looking up into his face and laughing. He waa grave, however, and somewhat pale. Had he been telling her his secret? Had he been making his confession? I wrung my hands aa j least my hat down under tho forest-fountain, for the air was hot and suffocating. To listen would have been a crime?to look ! it was no crime; but oh! tho severity of that punish ment ! Then he spolco out?I know not what; and she grew grave in turn. I could see that her cheek whitened, and that, while she was silent as the dead, she listened with all her soul. I could no longer doubt, and I refused to believe. What bad 1 done to you, Gottlieb, that you should try to rob me of my love ? To listen was infamy. My heart revolted from it, and yet I could not tear myself from the spot. For just when I had gathered up nay energies to go from thence, 1 beard her voice, deep, tremulous?mnjeBtic in its great solem nity?and she said to him? "Yes, Gottlieb, 1 do?I will. There's my hand, and with it my troth !" Terrible w ords to me; but what must they, on the other hand, have been to him. The gates of promise opening out into the field of life, golden with flowers and green with gar lands?I, alas! was casting my eyes towards the grave. Had she so entirely forgotten me ? No ! God be praised ! no?not quite. "Gottlieb!?Gottlieb!" she said in such a tone?such tenderness, "what will Karl think? what will he say ? and you know how be loves me. Will it not be cruel ?" " Poor Karl," said Gottlieb, and I heard no more. 1 did not faint, nor cry out, nor grow revengeful?wrathful?wickcd ! Ah, dear God ! no?why should 1 interfere with the course of her true heartfelt love ? 1 then knew that he had saved her life, and had a claim upon her. I trust I did not injure him by an unworthy feeling. I could see her no more after; and when I lay ill in my bed, and death seemed coming to me, it would have been very welcome. 1 had only my poor withered pansies to look upon as her relic. Her eyes, her face, her sweet white hands, 1 was never to look on or to touch again. "Adieu, Nina!" said I, when I looked at them now falling asunder leaf by leaf in my hands. I know not how I got up on the morning that I heard they were to be married, but I did so; and not a living soul knew of it. My godfather, who sat by my pillow day nnd night, was worn out with watching, and 1 stole forth and was in the church ere the bridal party came. I saw them kneel at the altar. "Nina! thou wert very cruel, methiuks. lie could never love thoe as 1," so I mused to myself. They were kneeling at the altar, and I heard their voices vow to love and cherish each other. Her voice was strong and firm. His was loud and manly. They both swore truly. Little did they know who was sacrificed to this terrible fidelity. No, Nina?not to him who adored thee, didst thou come or send. I pined for her fnce and saw it not. When I knew it was another's, 1 turned my fnce to the wall and desired to be at peace. I still carried the pansies on my breast? they were not heart's ease. It was not autumn with me?it was winter? The winds were singing dirges over my hopes. Oh, heart! heart! what didst thou not suffer ? Yet I blessed Nina and her husband when it ached most.
