IN ooumxiuouce of the great number of complaint* which have for a long time Uwu made by Emigrants, of frauds committed upon litem iu the Bending of money to their friend* in Ireland, and to aid aud protect the Emigrant, the Irish Kmigrant Society established a fund, deposited in the Bank of Ireland, upon which they draw drafts, payable at Might, at any of the branches of the Bank. Persons rusidiug out of the city, by unclotiing in a letter the sum they wish forwarded, with the plainly written direction to whom aud where it is to be paid, will have the name remitted.

The Society keeps an office at No. 22 Spruce street, to which Emigrants can apply to obtain situations for which they are lilted. Orders from employers In the oountry, stating the ser vices required, the wages, aud the cheapest modes of con veyance, aud giving a respectable reference, will meet with prompt atteution.

The Health of Waahlngton, We have recently received a copy of the " Report of the Board of Health," made to the Mayor of Washington by Thomas Miller, M. D., the distinguished President of the Board. No returns of either marriages or births which have takeu place in this city are given ; for the reason that the number of these reported to the Board during the past year, from the neglect of ministers and accouchers, are so far short of | the actual number which do occur, that to pub lish them would be giving a very false impres sion of the real number. If the Councils deem it important to colloct statistical knowledge on these subjects, (and the Board think it is im portant,) they must enact laws to make it obligatory on ministers of the Qospel and those who are empowered to perform the marriage ceremony to report marriuges, and accouchers or heads of families to report the births; and the laws must be enforced. From experience, derived from past observa tions, the Board are sustained in the conviction of the value and importance of vaccination, aud it justifies them in reiterating their former opinions of the necessity of a permanent vac cine institution. They recommend, as con nected with a vaccine establishment, that there be a pest house erected, and placed under proper and permanent arrangements, so that it will be accessible at all times for cases of smallpox, as well as any other disease of an infectious or contagious nature. The attention of the Board has been called to the practice which obtains in some of the churches of our city, of receiving upon tempo rary deposit dead bodies in their vaults, under tlieir churches and in their church-yards. The Hoard suggest to the Mayor and to the City Councils whether some action on their part on this subject might not be appropriate, and save much trouble and vexation in future. There is in this report a chapter on the sub ject of alleys, gutters, and sewers. From the vigilant efforts of the members of the Board, aided, as it has been, by the Mayor, the City Councils, and an eiticient police, much, we arc ' told, has been done towards effecting cleanli ness ; yet much has still to be done. By avail ing ourselves of the natural advantages of the locality of our city, by di."regarding obsolete laws, fixed opinions, and rigid construction of j old laws, and making our grades to acconi with common sense, founded on scientific observa tions, we will remove many of the obstacles which now exist to proper drainage, and in this way carry off all offensive and unhealthy collec tions. But a defect exists with regard to the con- 1 struction of sewers. In the present plan their mouths arc left open, and no arrangement exists | to prevent them from eliminating a most offen- ; sive and deleterious effluvia. In a communica tion heretofore addressed to the Mayor, the Board suggested a method by which, in their opinion, the difficulty thus presented might be I obviated. It consists in having either a balance T valve over the mouth of every sewer, or the | construction of what is termed by plumbers , goose-necks or air-trnps. The sewer on the corner of 14th street aud Pennsylvania avenue has been arranged according to this plan, with the most satisfactory result. The Board express their pleasure in announc- i ing the hcalthfulncss of the city during the past year, and its exemption from epidemic and con , tagious diseases, with the exception of the ' smallpox, which, however, prevailed to a very limited extent, and was generally confined to the most destitute class of society, who resided in the suburbs of the city, and who had never enjoyed the advnntages of vaccination. The number of deaths during the past year exceed those of the previous by a few. But when wc take into consideration that we have a growing population of between forty and fifty thousand, ' beside a large number of strangers and sojourn- | ere, and when wo examine the table of inter- ! ments, it can readily be accouuted for; and ' even with this increase ire compare most favora bly icith the healthiest parts of the world. Our list of deaths prove, too, the infrequency of deaths from that class of diseases usually ac credited to the influence of climate and locality. In this respect our city has, witbin a few years 1 past, undergone a marked improvement. [Republic. The steamship Brother Jonathan, bound to !

AMERICAN TELEGRAPH The Mltilanary ??il Tract Society of Wnthln^tou. This society ban been in operation upwards of two years, during wbich time a great amount of good has been accomplished through the un tiring efforts of the agent, Mr. 1). M .Wilson. It is supported by a number of the Christian churches of our city, whose pwitors in turn regularly preach at the station! established. Two convenient edifices hate already been erected: one in the northern portion of our city, and the other in the neighborhood of the National Observatory, where, iu addition to the advantages of stated prcaching, Sabbath schools have also been orgauiied, affording the means of religious instruction to many of the youth of our city, who were previously, to a great ex tent, iwgtec?*!. fUtj aw** ** countenance and support of every good citizen, and appeals with peculiar force to the various churches of the city, to whom it more particu larly looks for means in the prosecution of its humane and Christian work. We are permitted to take the following ex tract from the report of the agent lor the quar ter ending 30th August, 1851: , " In the three months ending August 30, 1851, I have visited b'JO families, and re-visited 108, '(including the infirmary, jail, almshouse, and garrison, Bix times each,) making in ull 804 visits; have been engaged iu prayer in these 594 times; distributed 1,110 tracts, containing 13,320 pages; held 50 meetings; 5 profess to have experienced a change of heart, aud I douljt not are sincere iu their professions; 2 have united with evangelical churches, and one other is applying for admission; 3 have died peace ful and happy deaths?2 previous to joining the church on earth, but gone, as 1 have good rea son to hope and believe, to join the church tri umphant above. There are others for whom 1 entertain strong hopes that a work of grace is being wrought on their hearts, respecting whom I prefer to await further developments previous to reporting their cases." Cotton Manufactures.?The New England cotton manufacturers arc said to be turning their attention to the making of much finer classes of goods than they formerly made; leaving the coarser aud heavier fabrics to the South and West, where they arc constantly at tracting increased attention. The Ludicrous Sides of Life.?It was read iness in repartee which continually saved Vol taire from overturn. He once praised another writer very heartily to a third person.

A youug man was discoursing very dog- 1 matically about the appropriate Bphere of wo man. " And pray, sir," screamed an old lady, ?? what is the appropriate sphere of woman . "A celestial sphere, madam." llobert Hall did not lose his power of retort ( even in madness. A hypocritical coudoler with his misfortunes once visited him in the mad house, and said in a whining tone, " What brought you here, Mr. Hall. Hall signifi cantly touched his brow with his finger, and replied, ?? What will never bring you, sir,?too much brain!" A person once eloquently eulogizing the an eelic qualities of Joan of Arc, was suddenly mot by the petulant question, " What whs Joan of Arc made of?" "She was Maid of Or lcans." A Yankee sauntered into the office of the lightning telegraph, and asked bow long u would take to transmit a message to ? ashing ton. "Ten minutes," was the reply. "leant wait," was the rejoinder. Sheridan was at a country house on a visit, and an elderly inaideu lady desired to be his companion in a walk, lie excused himself at first on the ground of the badness of the weather. She soon afterwards, however, inter- | cepted him in an attempt to escape without her. ??Well," she Mid, "it is cleared up, I see. " Why, yes," he answered, " it lias cleared up enough for one, but not enough for tiro.'' This readiness made John Randolph so terri ble in retort. He was the Thersites of Congress, a tongue stabber! No hyperbole of contempt or scorn could be launched ngainst him, but he could overtop it with something more scorufu and contemptuous. Opposition only maddened him into more brilliant bitterness. " Isu t it a shame, Mr. President," said he one day in the Senate " that the noble bulldogs ol the admin istration shonld he wasting their precious time in worrying the rats of the opposition. Imme diately the Senate was iu an uproar, and he was clamorously called to order.

T MIC DiTiaioN or Cau?uh?iia?The Califor nia papers speak of the scheme for the division of the State as likely to be carried iato effect The project is to separate the seven southern counties, which begin just above Monterey, from the northern portion of the common wealth; and the argument used is, that this southern half, being entirely an agricultural district, has its interests overlooked, and will continue to be overlooked, by the legislature, controlled, as that body is, by the mining influ ence A good deal of feeling, we perceive, has already been awakened in our Atlantio cities respecting this movement. Wo see no cause' however, lor excitement. The affair is purely Lalitornian, and does not ooncern the eastern States, at least In its present aspect. If the people of California wish to separate into two distinct commonwealths, they will just have to express this desire in a constitutional manner ? and when this is done, it will be quite time for *1> Hie subject, and for citi zens of the Atlantic bonier to enter into the discussion. The probability, at present, is, * thot a majority of the Californians will repu diate the division. We Americans are always too much in a hurry; and we carry its haste into politics. For ourselves, we see no necessity for making a mountain out of this mole-hill yet. [Phil. Evening Bulletin.

The greatest statesman orator mid hero of the old world will find in the new an appreciation of his merits which will only be the keener from liis misfortunes. In the eyes of our countrymen, defeat and disaster will not diminish their estimation of his great ness. Kossuth, a wanderer and an exile is more admirable than Napoleon at the height of power achieved by the surrender of principle. [Richmond Republican.
