IN coiise.jueuce of the great number of complaints which
have for a long Uuie been mode by Emigrant!, of fraud*
uouiuiltted upon them in the sending of money to their
friends in Ireland, and to aid and nroUct the Emigrant,
the Irish Kmigrant Society establishud a fund, deposited
in the Bank of Iruland, upon which they draw draft*,
payable at sight, at any of the brandies of the Hank.
1'ersous residing out of the c ity, by enclosing in a letter
the sum they wish forwarded, with the plainly written
direction to wiioui 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 Bank lias 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 ?treet, to
which Emigrants can apply to obtain situations for which
they are titled.
Orders froui employers in the country, stating the ser
vices required, the wages, and the cheapest modes of con
veynuce, 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 Emigrants, and will endeavor speedily to
apply a remedy. OK KOOKY DILLON, President.

Diukct Trade of the South wjth Europe.?
Hostility to the North may suggest this to some
minds; but there is a better basis for the en
terprise of the South. Self-preservation is a
duty, and is by no means incompatible with the
kindliest feelings toward our Northern fellow
citizens. This it is that demands the measure.
Wo observe in the Charleston Courier, of
Wednesday, the following :
" To-day we have the gratification of notioing
a circumstance which may well be regarded as
an era in the commercial history of Charles
ton?tli.it is, the arrival of the British ship
Grasmere, Captain Vaile, from Calcutta, with
800 bales of gunny bagging for the house of
Messrs. John Eraser & Co. This is the first
direct communication with the East and this
city that has taken place within the recollection
of our oldest merchants; and with a tonnage
which is rapidly increasing, and which would
do credit to any port, we venture to say that
the day is not far- distant when our commerce
with the East will be in no measure inferior to |
even that of Boston. Messrs. J. Eraser & Co.
are likewise the importers of 1,980 bags ot
coffee, by the Hanoverian schooner (hie, which
arrived yesterday from Rio de Janeiro?thus
setting an example which is worthy of imita
tion, and for which they deserve the thanks of
our citizens. Let the suggestions of our cor
respondent " G. " be adopted, relative to the
deepening of our harbor, and the system of di
rect trade?export as well as import?systemati

Reduction of Sewnpaper Pontage.
We are glad to see that Barnabas Bates ia out
again in the advocacy of the great postage re
form so miserably botched at the last session of
Congress. In an article in the New \ork Her
ald ho says:
" The complaint is universal that the recent
act of Congress imposing new rates of postage
ou newspapers is burdensome and complicated,
iind that the construction of the law by the Post
Office Department makes it peculiarly obnoxious.
The newspaper press feels the burden in a pecu
liar manner ; as the present rates, especially on
transient papers, amount to a prohibition.
" From the information received from several
members of Congress, 1 am certain that, at an
early period of the next session, measures will
be taken to remedy the evils of the present law,
and that a rate, simple, uniform and cheap, will
be adopted. It is the intention of the Hon. Mr.
Gwin, Senator from California, to offer a reso
lution on the first day of the session, instructing
the Committee on Post Offices and Pout Koada |
to report a bill reducing the rates of postage on
newspapers. The people of California teel the
I oppressive effects of the present law in a pecu
! liar manner; and, iudeed, all the distant btates,
i which ought to be favored, if possible, complain
of the intolerable burden of the present law.
Besides this, the rules are so complicated that
not one postmaster in ten can easily tell what
postage should be charged on transient news
papers. Instead of one uniform rate, the present
law imposes at least seventy-two (72) rates on
newspapers, according to weight, size, and dis
?' It is my determination, if sustained by my
friends, to devote myself to this cause, until wo
have ns cheap postage as any other people,
and our post-offices the best managed iu the

n second Cuban bond speculation.?I'kila. Sun.
An error: the Washington Republic takes no
ground, but regards all as pirates who do. It
would hardly approve of the Cubans' assuming
a title to their own ground ; and would vote our
ancestors outlaws and pirates for taking that
which belonged to the aborigines. It is a con
scientious paper, is the Washington Republic,
and the Sun should not cast a shadow upon its
purity! ^

Spare the Flowerii
Tin well, young girl's, your iwy hour*
To pasa in frolic gay ;

That blossom in your w??.
Oh, crush thrin not! but love them well,
And li?t to what they any ;
A warning tale to you they tell,
Of sad and ?wlft decaj !
For you, like these fair fragile flower*,

And though you Idly put thein liy,
In Ule's froth morning hours,
A time shall tie whi n you will nigh
For these- unheeded flower*!

And early dreauis depart,
And hope* are tied, you'll then desiro
To press them to your heart,
And they *hull wako your dreams again,
To bless your elosing hour*,
Whi n none of all you loved remain,
Uut these sweet sister flowers.

To the Editors of the American Telegraph.
Gentlemen : The 19th of October, the sev
entieth anniversary of that great and fiDnl bat
tle fought on the plains of Little York, in this
State, during that dark and gloomy period in
the history of the revolution, the year 1781, and
which had the result of terminating that long
yet glorious struggle between the then colonies
and mother country, was celebrated in this
town on Monday, the 20th instant, with the
usual display of our military, on the advent of
this, a day held in high veneration by the good
people of the Old Dominion. Why is it that
this day, which is second to none in its results
on the destiny of our beloved country, should
not be hailed as one that deserves a nation's
homage ? and not suffer State pride alone to
keep in remembrance that to which a grsiteful
people should be proud to do honor.
The news of the detachment of Samuel T.
Hartt, Naval Constructor at the Uosport yard,
was received here by the men counected with
the yard, and the people generally, with feel

ular both in and out of the yard, for his agree
able and gentlemanly manners, and his high
attainments in his profession. Complimentary
letters have passed between him and the Heads
of the several Departments, and also from the
workmen, that are flattering to Mr. Hartt, and
highly creditable to all the gentlemen con

Clerk of the Home of Representatives,
Messrs. Editors: Having seen several com
munications in the " Union, " recommendatory
of the claims of several gentlemen for the po
sition of Clerk of the next House of Repre
sentatives, permit me to name a gentleman for
that office who is really more entitled to the
honor than any one individual in the Democratic
ranks?I allude to Col. John W. Forney, the
talented and accomplished editor of the " Penn
tylvanian," of Philadelphia. If any single in
dividual is justly entitled to office from the
Democratic party, that individual is Col. For
ney. The gratitude and thanks of tho Democ
racy arc due to him for the late signal victory
obtained in Pennsylvania; to his untiring and
active exertions must be mainly attributed that
result?a result which has placed the old " Key
stone" where she should be, among the topmost
of the pillars of Democracy. It will be recol
lected that Col. Forney was the prominent can
didate for the same post at the last session of
Congress, and that the opposition of the Abo
litionists of the North and the Disuuionists of
the South prevented his election. Subsequently
Mr. Campbell was elected. Now is the time
to do full justice to Col. Forney, (when bis party
is in full power, without the extraneous support
either of abolitionism or disunionism,) by his
election to the Clerkship of the next House of
Representatives. 1 trust that the Democratic
party will never forsake such a friend.

A ScRirrtiLors Sheriff.?'Bennett, convicted
of murder at the late term of the Ripley (Ind.)
circuit court, has been sentenced to be hung ou
the first Friday in December. It is said the
Sheriff will resign rather than exccute the sen
tence of the court.
In this, according to our way of thinking,
the Sheriff is right; but he would have been
riyhter had he never taken an office that called
for the performance of such duties.
Senator Owin.?We regret to learn that this
gentleman has been so much indisposed since
his arrival at New York, that his friends have
been denied access to him. He has, of course,
been unable to attend to bis correspondence.
We understand that the fever which confines
him made its appearance on his route across
the isthmus, and is one that is fast yielding to i
medical treatment; so that no fears need be
entertained of his convalescence. This state
ment is made that his numerous friends may
not ascribe to any neglect his failure to answer
their letters.?Union.
A Public Improvement.?Workmen are en
gaged in sotting the coping stone at the trian
gular piece of ground between Thirteenth and
Fourteenth streets, and Pennsylvania avenue
and E street north, on which is to be placed
beautiful and substantial iron fencing, five feet
in height. The trees skirting the aveuue are to
be removed to the northern line, and others, of
choice varieties, planted within the enclosure
which fronts on Thirteenth street three hundred
and thirty-two feet, and on Pennsylvania avenue
three hundred and fifty-two lent.
Mr. Downing, the rural architcct, furnished the
plan for this improvement.?Republic.

Gicf. Wm. 0. Butler.?This gallant Bon of
Kentucky is often named in connexion with tho
Presidency; but tlie Waysville Port Jloy says
the Democratic party in that State are not fully
wtiafied with him, and quote# from the Ilopkins
ville l'res* the folio wiug:
"Various matters which we have heard len
der it imperative that Gen. Butler s sentiments
should be known before we can ever vote for
him. It is requiring too much ol a southern
mmi, in these days of political apoftaoy, to ex
pect him to support a man whose principles bo
loathes and abhors, merely upon the old thread
bare and hackneyed cry of democracy
The General will no doubt speak out with
effect. He always does so at fitting times.

" The mound was about seventy feet in diam
eter, and eleven feet high. Nearly on a level
with the biitrounding earth were found an altar

nation from the head to tho feet. Thi? body
was covered to the depth ol a loot or more with
ashes, in which the salt was still manifest to
the taste, as we arc told. The body was re
markably perfect, and was mostly preserved.
Around this body were twelve others, with their
heads centering toward it, and feet projecting.
No articles of art were found except a polished
stone tube, about twelve inches iu length."
