SEARS' PICTORI AL FAMILY PUBLICATIONS
are decidedly tho best books that agents can possibly em
ploy their time in supplying to the people of the United
States. They are valuable for reference, and should be
possessed by every family in this great republic. There is
not a city or town in these United States, not even those
of small importance, but contains many citizens to whom
these works are indispensable. They are adapted to the
literary wants of the Christian, the patriot, the statesman,
and the domestic circle, got up in a superior style of art
and workmanship; and are not only such books as will
sell, but are such as an agent of good principle will feel
free to recommend, and willing to see the purchaser ugaiu
after they have been bought.
Our Plan.?The plan the publisher has so successfully
ca-.ried out for several years, is the obtaining responsible
C-en as agents, who are well known in their own counties,
owns, and villages, and have time and disposition to cir
culate good and instructive books among their neighbors
and friends. Any person wishing to embark in the enter
prise will risk Utile in sending $26 or $50, for which he
will receive an assortment as he may direct, at the whole
sale cash prices.
Enterprising and active men of respectability and good
address, would do well to engage in the sale of the above
volumes; and all postmasters, clergymen, book pedlars,
and newspaper agents, are rospectftilly requested to act
as our agents. A handsome remuneration allowed to all
who engage in their sale. For particulars address, post
paid, R011ERT SEARS, 128 Nassau street, N. Y.
To publishers of newspapers throughout the United States:

any alteration or abridgment, (including this notice,) and
giving it a few inside insertions, shall receive a copy of
any of our $2 60 or $?> works, subject to their order, by
sending direct to the publisher. mar 24?

Office, No. 1 Rtadt Street, New York.
IN consequence of the great number of complaints which
have for a long time been uiiulo by Emigrants, of frauds
committed upon them in the sending of money to their
trientta in Ireland, and to aid and protect the Emigrant,
the Irish Emigrant Society established a fund, deposited
in the Bunk of Ireland, upon whlrh they draw dratU
payable at eight, at any of the branches of the liank.
Persons residing out of tlt? eity, by enclosing in a letter
the gum they with forwarded, with the plainly written
direction to whom and where it 1? to be paid, will have the
name remitted.
There Ik a great advantage in purchasing the Society's
that the Bank ha* a branch In each of the princi
pal towns In Ireland, and thus the losses by discount, and
other wise, are avoided.
The Society keeps an office at No. 22 Spruce street, to
which Emigrants can apply to obtain situations for which
they are litted. I
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 outrage
committed on Kmigrants, and will endeavor speedily to
apply a remedy. GKEUORY DILLON, President

Do Labobkhs biiahk in tiik Inoukahk of
Wkalth??This is a questiou full of interest to
the large majority of our citizens, whose sole
passport to diBtiuction is in the energetic pros
ecution of tho various modes of lubor. The
I Tribune, after remarking that this is a question
which has been very widely aud ardently de
[ bated without arriving ut any decisive conclu
sion, although the majority of the evidence has
seemed to be in the affirmative, and that they
have come to be of that way of thinking, says:
" Wo have arrived at the decided conviction,
that in every commuuity where there is a real
increuse of wealth, the laboring classes must
have their part in its benefits; and that it is
only where the general wealth has ceascd to
grow, or is actually diminishing, that the rich
become richer and the poor poorer. The growth
of wealth is a natural process, and must accord
ingly tend to democratic equality of conditions.
On this head, Mr. Porter, the well-known En
glish statistician, in a recent publication, fur
nishes some interesting facts."

Area* aud Pavement*.
On reference to the buildiug regulations re
corded among the plats of the city at the City
Ilall, it will be seen that areas of five feet are
the only legal ones that exist. It is true, for
years an encroachment upon the pavement has
been tolerated on account of travellers stopping
at our hotels; but for the Government to in
crease the width of the pavement on the Avenue,
and for proprietors to advance more than the
law allows, w ill not be sanctioned. If citizens
exercise their rights and object, the Mayor will
be obliged to fine. There are some peculiar
cases which might induce the people to over
look them, but nothing can be legalizedjwhich
conflicts with the original building regulations.
Encroachment below the level of a pavement
cunuot, surely, justify enclosures above grouud,
unless bona fide areas and certain streets and
avenues have allotted to them pavements of
certain width ; and while unimproved property
may not have more than one-half of tho width
of the pavement laid down, yet the grade must
be made level. The pavement line was a part
of the allowance granted by the original pro
prietors for streets, &c., and they belong to the
public. It is not discretionary, even in the
corporation, if so disposed, to withhold the line
when it is called for for public use. The laws
must be enforced, and all encroachments dis
countenanced. After a few years individuals
claim as a right what is clearly against
Common Law.
Three Days Later from Europe.
The steamer Hermann arrived at New York
yesterday, with London dates to October 8th,
and Liverpool to the 7th.
Cotton in Liverpool on the 7th was firmer for
lower grades of American. In other qualities
thefe was no change. Flour was in good re
quest at Gd. advance. Wheat had advanced 2d.
per bushel. Indian corn rather neglected.
Provisions held steady.

The great ovent and topio of conversation
when the Hermann sailod was the expected ar
rival of Kossuth at Southampton, which was
expected to take place about the 12th of Oct.,
lie having sailed from Marseilles on the 1st.
Kossuth, before leaving Marseilles, published
an address to the Democrats of France, in
which he mentions the refusal of the French
government to allow him to pass through
France. The " I'tuplt" newspaper at Mar
seilles was seized for some remarks made on
the subject. The liberal portion of the Paris
press compare the action of the city of London
with that of the French government, and warn
it against the prosecution to which the press
has been subjected. They speak in just terms
of reprobation of the coudiict of the govern- i
ment.
Kossuth's address to the Democrats of France
does not meet with favor from his friends in <
England. After remaining a short * time in
Southampton, he will proceed to London, and
in about a fortnight leave for America.

Tiik Cotton Plantkbs' Convention.?They
are making great preparations at Macon, Geor
gia, for tbe State Agricultural Fair and Cotton
Planters' Convention, to be held on tbe last
three days of tbe present month. The object
of the Convention is to regulate the price of
cotton?to insure a uniform price whether the
crop is good or bad, and without regard to the
market price abroad; or, in other words, with
out regard to tbe supply and demand which
regulate invariably the markets of the world.
This important arrangement is to be effected,
by forming a mammoth combinatiou of cotton
planter*, under charters from the different
States.
Nothing Nkw under thk Sun.?Even tbe
Yankee clipper-ships have been found to be
nothing new. An English paper, speaking of
the Boston ship Staffordshire, remarks:
" It is a singular coincidence that the pro
portions of tbe Staffordshire are similar to
Noah's Ark?six times her beam is her length,
and two-thirds of tbe beam is her depth ol
hold."
We long since heard the opinion expressed
by knowing men that Noah's Ark was perfect
in its proportions, and tbe experience of man
kind appears to confirm this truth. Some per
sons allege that there arc several things in the
Bible, the truth and wisdom of which have been
proven by human experience!
The Hungarians at the West.?The Hun
garian exiles that arrived in this city last week
fiud it impossible to proceed to their destination
and provide tbe necessary means for subsistence
in a new country, during the winter, which will
be upon them hefore they could reach their
friends at New Buda.
It has been suggested to the officer, Captain
Brick, under whose command they have placed
themselves, that it would be the part of pru
dence to procure employment for the winter, at
least.
Same of them find employment on the rail
road. There are others who are mechanics, but
not suitable for the employment offered on the
road. Some few of the soldiers arc married
and have their wives with tbem.
If they get employment this winter which
will enable thein to husband their little means,
and add something to thein, they can proceed
to their new settlement in a more auspicious
season of the year, and will gain experience,
and become better acclimated.
This company was presented, by Mr. Corco
ran, of Washington, with $l,(jl!0, which was
paid over to the Mayor of New York ; and all
the money that was paid out was under the di
rection of the Hungarian committee?General
Sandford, president, and Gen. Hall, treasurer,
and the Mayor one of the committee.
The delay in making arrangements for the
passage was, of course, attended with expense
for board, washing, and a few agricultural im
plements, See., and leaving them witli only about
$300. This constitutes their whole available
means; and we must all readily perceive that
it is nothing fi)r eighty persons to go into a new
country with, where they must devote tbeir
whole energies to the preparatiou of homes?
say only less than four dollars each.

Symmes' Hole.?Some of our readersmay re
member that a novel theory of the structure of
the earth was propounded some years ago by
Capt. Symmes, and that it was explained and
advocated by John N. Reynolds, esq. The theo
ry was, that there was an opening in the earth
at each pole, and that vessels might sail through
it into the interior of the globe if they could
once pass the barrier of ice by which it is sur
rounded. The theory was known as Symmes'
Hole, and tbe designation was quite generally
applied to the inventor and the advocate of it. A
writer in the Montreal Herald contends that it
has been confirmed by the accounts of the Arc
tic exploring expeditions, and that Sir John
Franklin has probably got into the hole und can't
get out! He quotes the statement from the ac
counts of Capt. Penny's expedition.
"Capt. Penny found a heavy barrier of ice in
Wellington Channel, not very far from its open
ing from Barrow's Straits, but a most remark
able change was observed as he passed to a more
northern latitude; the ice which he had left (as
is usual at this early season, April and May,)
firm and solid, was here decaying and unsafe,
and at last the travellers came upon open water,
drift wood, Arctic animals and birds?the lat
ter in enormous numbers. Here were all the
signs of an improved climate."
He makes the following comments:
"I do not know how it will strike you, sir, but
to me, with whom the idea of openings at the
poles has been familiar some :$0 years, the infor
mation communicated by Capt. Penny is exceed
ingly curious. Perhaps, after all. Sir John
Franklin has found thin opening! If there be such
an opening, it is quite probable that the strength
of the current info the opening may pi event re
turn to tailing vessels. It would not. however,
bo an obstacle to the return of steamers. How
important then it bccomo* that Captain Peony s
present efforts to obtain a steamer, and returu
? to the 'opeu water' and the 1 improved climate,
I may be successful."

*!?? Revolution In Northern Mexico.
The Southern Prut of thin morning auys ?
The revolution in northern Mexico begins to
ni-<time n graver and more important aspect
than was at first apprehended. It is yet a ques
tion how far Amerioitus are mixed up with it.
1 hree hundred are said to have joined C.u-vajul
from Texas, und, if true, they will no douht be
uselul anxiliarlcs; and, though few in numbers
not a liltle influential in all that touches the
movement.
J he commencement of a revolution bo near
the United States boundaries will naturally
suggest to the mind the interposition of our
countrymen ; and, any way, it is impossible for
them to avoid taking an interest in what is so
near to them. The contiguity of a nation of
self-governing Europeans is. of itself, a provo
cative of revolution. No people, however mo
rally misled, can shut themselves out entirely
from the influences and example of a neighbor
ing freer system. Mexico is a mere mockery
of a republic. In her, as in other of the new
republican Spanish States, the great essential
condition of liberty, moral reformation, has
never yet commenced. She contains within her
self, on the contrary, two undying, antagonistic
principles?absolutism in action in all that con
cerns her morally, and liberty in name only
which she grasps at instinctively, without com
prehending its depth, its force, or its obliga
tions. ?.
Internal anarchy i'b the result?revolution
the perpetual type of its existence? disseusion
military dictation, idleness, indifference, want
of energy, and misery, is the real condition of
the country. To such a people, the prosperity,
the spirit, the intelligence of the Americans, is
a perfect mystery; and they are themselves bo
far removed from that moral independence,
which is the secret of our progress, that their
attempts at imitation are absolutely useless and
ludicrous.
Thu*, thinly scattered as we are towards
those regions, and though not occupying a tenth
part of the lands lying on their borders, we, the
more enterprising nation, just as naturally'find
ourselves ever encroaching upon the other, in
fluencing and directing it; as the other,'the
Mexican, aware of its feebleness, and despite
of its hatreds and prejudices, follows, imitates,
and appeals to us for aid, for counsel, and for
action.
So appealed the down-trodden, mystified na
tious, to the Roman people, uutil Home at
length embraced the world, and civilized it by
her noble principles.
Liri'iiAuy Noblemen.?The British nobility
are striking into, for them, a new path of dis
tinction. Lord Carlisle recently delivered lec
tures on poetry. The Duke of Argyle, a Scotch
nobleman, lately on the education of the work
ing classes, and Lord Lewisham, one of the
members of Parliament, is now engaged in lec
turing on " civility." The long disuse of arms
111 Europe drives this class of persons into those
avenues of fame where talent may find a con
genial sphere; and where 1 ibbons cannot be
won by feats in the tented-field, the laurels even
of a successful lecturer are not disdained. The
difference between the disengaged nobility of
England and that of the continent is, that where
the career of arms is not open to the former,
parliamentary or literary pursuits absorb their
unemployed hours. On the continent, if they
do not hold military commissions, being de
prived of political employment, they bccome
degraded into gamblers or followers of court
frivolities. It is for this reason that the Eng
lish nobility has always l>een the most respect
ablo in Europe.? Colutnbia (8. C.) Carolinian.
More Fire Anniiui.ators.?Two methods of
extinguishing fire, before it has made consider
able progress, have been lately made public in
Germany. One of these is a mixture o! sulphur,
1 part; protoxide of iron, 2 parts; and 6 parts of
green copperas. The other consists of 1 part
sulphur, 1 yellow ochre, and 6 parts of copperas.
The materials arc to be reduced to n coarsc pow
der, then mixed together and ground fine. The
composition is put into cartridge paper cosey,
provided with a slow match. They act by cool
ing gases, in which the flame of ordinary com
bustible substances is immediately extinguished.
A Liukral Act.?The Ataerican says:?John
P. Stockton, esq., of Princeton, son of Com
modore Stockton, a member of the bar of New
Jersey, yesterday made the liberal donation of
50 dollars to the family of Mansfield Wood, who
was indicted and convicted of passing counterfeit
bank bills. The family were in a very destitute
condition, and the grief of the wife, surrounded
with her helpless children, created a warm sym
pathy throughout the Court-room. The dona
tion came most opportunely, as the family were
entirely destitute of the necessary means to car
ry them home to Philadelphia. The donor re
quested the sheriff, to whom he gave his check,
to keep the matter ,uiet, but the parties benefit
ted insisted upon knowing all about it.
