IRISH EMIGRANT SOCIETY.
Office, No. 1 Rtadt Street, Ntw York.
IN consequence of the great number of complaints which
have for a long time been made by Emigrants, of frauds
committed upon them in the sending of money to their
friends in Ireland, and to aid aud protect the .Emigrant,
the Irish Emigrant Society established a fund, deposited
in the itank of Ireland, upon which they draw drafts,
payable at sight, at any of the branches of the Bank.
Persons reading out of the city, by enclosing in a letter
the sum they with forwarded, with the plaiuly written
direction to whom 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 Itank has a branch in each of thu princi
pal towns in Ireland, aud thus the losses by discount, and
otherwise, aro avoided.
The Society keeps an office at No. 22 Spruce street, to
which Kmlgrants 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 respectable reference, will meet with
prompt attention.
The Society will be thankful for all circumstantial and
early information of any fraud, imposition, or outrage I
committed on Emigrants, and will endeavor speedily to
apply a remedy. GREGORY DILLON, President.

Portsmouth, (Va.,) Not. 7, 1851.
(1 ENTi.iiMtN : Mr. (Jliarle? 11. Hock well, the
Commissioner of Customs, arrived in Norfolk
some Jays since from Washington. Ilis busi
ness, I am informed, is to investigate, s{ft to the
bottom, certain charges or complaints that havo
been made to the Secretary of the Treasury,
hearing heavily on the Collector at Norfolk.
Grout dissatisfaction has existed among a largo
number of Col. Gurnet'a political and personal
friends from tho commencement of his official
duties, and much crimination and recrimination
has been produoed therefrom. However, wo
shall soon know, I presume, where the fault
litw, and whether it is from prejudice en
gendered by being disappointed in their politi
cal aspirations that these men have made bo
much." noise and confusion" both here and in
Washington. . .
The Transcript, of our town?which is, by the
way, one of the most popular sheets published
in this section of Virginia, and deserving of a
more liberal patronage than is now awarded it
for the untiring efforts of its proprietor to cater
for the public with all the latest delicacies fur
nished by tho mails, or that can be obtained
through other sources?has received and laid
before its readers, in a letter from its able,
knowing, and ready Washington correspondent,
" Crystal," the cheering tidings that the skies
are brightening over our mechanics and others
employed in the Gosport yard; and that ere
long tho Navy Department will show, in a tan
gible form, that the situation of our working
men, whose services they have been ever able
to command, either by night or day, when no
cessary for the promotion of government in
terests, is known, and that they arc to be pro
vided with work to sustain them during the
winter. This, to them and the rest of the com
munity, is nows of the most cheering charac
ter, which can only be enhanced by its speedy

The fair at Oxford Hall, gotten up to liquidate
the debt of St. John's Episcopal (Low) Church,
by the ladies, closed to-night with a grand en
tertoinmeutby Wyraan, tho great mngician, who
I kindly volunteered this performance as a gra
tuitous offering to the cause they have been so
| zealously and successfully promoting with their
time and means for the last week. A very large
audience were present, to witness the perfect
manner in which he does up things, and how
perfectly he sets at defiance all successful com
petition. His performances will be continued
through the ensuing week at this spacious hull,
after which he will entertain the Norfolk city folks
with a little of his magic, interspersed with his
surprising powers of ventriloquism, at Mechan
ics' Hall, in that city.
We are getting to be, you will say, a great
commercial people down here, when I inform
you that we have two large barks and two large
schooners at our wharves, loading with staves,
timber, shucks, &c., for foreign ports. This
looks like business; and with a leetle more en
terprise, and a few more enterprising men, we
may yet come out of the bogs of sloth and de
spondency. . .

Mb. Walsh oh the French President.?In
his last letter from Paris, to the Journal of Com
merce, Mr. Robert Wal?h writes :
Louis Napoleou's game is one of the most dim
cult that can be imagined, lie cannot repose the
least confidence in the monarchical juntos; the
moderate republicans have no confidence in him;
no disposition to promote his assumed destinies;
ant Cesar ant nulius, is his real situation ; the
ited Republicans and Socialists would scarcely
consent to use him as an instrument. He must
move or chop round according to the tactics or
manoeuvres, joint or several, of his indefatigable
enemies. No military commander, beset on all
sides, ever needed more skill, vigilance and de
cision in strategy. Louis Napoleon does not
act from passion ; he seems at times to yield to
sudden impulses; but we may suppose that, in
fact, he calculates and deliberates BuiUbly to his
outward character and demeanor, and to the ex
igencies of each campaign.
A Moonlight Balloon Excursion.?A 1 aris
paper, of the 14th ult, gives an entertaining
log-book of an aerial voyage recently performed
by M. Eugene Godard and a half doien coin
I panions, on a brilliant moonlight night. M.
Godard was endeavoring to demonstrate Ins
ability to Bteer the atmospheric ship as con
veniently as one riding the water, and appears
to have succeeded to a charm. He passed from
one point of Paris and its environs to another,
picking up his passengers, and stated, when he
finally arose, to what points in the department
! he proposed to travel, and fulfilled his promises
with wonderful exactness. When passing over
i Clichy, at an immense height, the scene is de
! scribed as one of fairy-like beauty. The moon
wss on tho horizon; the f?e
from cloud or vapor, glittered wi ? * ,
below, the different streets ftnd boulevards of
Paris wero distinctly protracted in long lines of
light. After voyaging for some hours, the bal
loon descended at Gargcs, and the P^y trav
eled cosily and safely upon terra firma back to
the city.
i A Chanch for tub Toadies.?Albert Smith,

The Tributte of yesterday says:
"A gentleman who has conversed with Capt.
I^<?ng, of the Mississippi, inform* us tliat the
' aptuin had no such difficulty with Kossuth as
has been reported, aud expresses l'or the great
Huuguriun the highest esteem and regard. The
reports were set on foot by the enemies of the
Hungarians in franco."
The telegraphic despatches to all our papers
contaiu similar statements. We quote from the
Baltimore Sun :
" It is understood that Capt. Long and the
officers of the Mississippi disavow entirely the
reports so widely circulated of differences be
tweeu them and the Hungarians. Kossuth, iu
his letter, expresses great gratitude for the uni
form kindness he has experienced on board the
Mississippi.*'
The letter alluded to is to the Mayor of New
\ ork. In it he states that business of the most
urgent nature compelled him to visit England,
and he considered it best that the steamer should
not be delayed on his account. He further
states that he certainly will leave Liverpool for
New York iu the steamer of the 8th iust. He
thanks the people of Now York, through their
Mayor, for the groat kindness they have ex
pressed with regard to him.

Visit of Mr. Ltwriuec to Kossuth.
Southampton, Monday.
The principal topic of conversation hero to
day is the wonderful speech of M. Kossuth ut
the Mayor of Southampton's. The mode of de
livery, the matter, aud the excellcnce of the
English, are equally the subjects of compliment
ary comment; aud the general impression is
that the most remarkable man of the century
has come amoug us. His wonderful powur of
influencing men's minds is illustrated by the re
vulsion of feeling which the moderation of his
sentiments has produced among tho intelligent
conservatives?a large and influential section of
the town population. They had expected a red
republican, or something of that sort, and are
quite in ecstacies at finding a man who utters
the most constitutional sentiments, and who
only seeks to restore institutions eight hundred
years old. The demand for tickets for the ban
quet has risen to an unprecedented extcut, and
the dimensions of the room arc compluined of
as insufficient for the occasion. Mr. Lawrence,
the American Minister, has arrived at Mr. Dea
con's, the town clerk's, accompanied by another
distinguished American, Mr. Walker, late Sec
retary to the States' Treasnry. Tho public will
recollect this gentleman, from the eulogium of
Sir llobert l'eel, thut ?" he was one of tho ablest
men in America."
[From the London Morning Chronicle.]
ICoaautli'a Private Vtatt to London.
Southampton, Monday.
The continual excitement which Kossuth lived
in from his landing on Thursday to the dejeuner
at the Mayor of Southampton's, had begun to
tell upon the health of the exile, not yet quite
recovered from the effects of the sea voyage.
Tho remainder of that day and tho Sunday were
spent in seclusion, with tho excoption that he
went, accompanied by tho mayor, to attend
morning service in the cathedral of Winchester.
It was not generally known that he intended to
be present, and by way of avoiding any thing
like excitement, the mayor and he walked
quietly down by the back streets. Sevoral vis
iters called upon him in the course of tho day,
but the state of his health permitted him to see
only a few.
This morning he proceeded up to London by
an early train to join Madame Kossuth and his
family in London. They arc all expected back
to-morrow, and are to take up their residence
for the day with Mr. Croskey, the American
consul. *
Another object of his journey to town is to
consult with an eminent physician on the stale
of his health, which, as we have already indi
cated, i'j in rather a delicate slate.
With reference to the report that has been
circulated some time since, that the Austrian
Minister had threatened to demand his pass
| ports if our Foreign Minister should grant Kos
suth an interview, there is a curious story cur
rent here, and stated, too, on no mean authority,
that Lord Dudley Stuart has been authorized to
assure Kossuth that Lord Palmerston would
grant him nn interview of an unofficial charac
ter if lie desirod it; and that, so far as his lord
ship was personally concerned, he was rather
anxious to see him than otherwise.
Mr. Cobden returned to town on Saturday
evening, but is expected to return to-morrow
for tho banquet. Mr. Abbott Lawrence, the
American Minister, is also expected, and Mr.
Walker, late Secretary to the United States
Treasury. Mr. Lawrence has accepted the in
vitation of Mr. Deacon, the town clerk of
Southampton, to take up his residence during
his stay in Southampton at bis house. Iteyond
the names of Lord Dudley Stuart and Mr. Cob
den, wc do not hear of any other distinguished
Englishmen who aro to join in this demonstra
tion.
The popular feeling here in favor of the Hun
garian is very strong ; and even the Conserva
tive party in the borough, who were at first dis
posed to stand aloof, and look askance on the
Hungarian chief, have been almost completely
won over by his speeches, and are now as en
thusiastic in the popular demonstrations as any
of their fellow-townsmen.
An interesting incident occurred at the mayor's
residence on Friday. Two casket* of jewels be
longing to Mad. Kossuth had been lost during
the insurrectionary war in Hungary, and were
given up as lost. Itseemed, however, that some
how or other they had been recovered by Mad
ame Pulzsky, who on Friday had the gratifica
tion of restoring them to their right owner.
The jewels, it is said, are worth from 3,000 to
?4,000.
A Grand Abch.volooioai. Discovery.?-Alex
ander Yon Humboldt publishes, in the (Jasette
de. Spener, some particulars of his interesting
discovery at Athens, of the Council Chamber
where the Five Hundred held their delibera
tions. At a depth of one foot below the surface
he had come upon a large mass of inscriptions,
columns, statnes, &c., which forbid a doubt that
there had been the seat of that building. Tho
explorations have not gone on as rapidly as they
might, on account of the expense. There is
little doubt, however, that the discovery is of
extraordinary importance.

TUe Study of the Scriptures.
Messrs. Editous: I am a Bible-class in
structor, and the class which I instruct desire
to study the book of Genesis; and, as there is
no suitable question-book upon this portion of
Scripture accessible by them, it occurred to me
to make your useful paper the medium of placing
before the members of the class, from week to
week, as they may be needed, a series of ques
tions designed to elicit inquiry into the meaning
of the sacred text. If you will permit me to
do so, it will not ocoupy much space, and may
be of use, not only to my class, but to others
engaged in the study of the same portion of
Scripture. ***

Wasiiikutonians in CauroaNi a.?The Waah
ingtau correspondent of the Baltimore Clipper
has the following information in regard to mem
bers of the Washington and California Mining
Association, most or all of whoso members were
formerly citizens of this place:
Messrs. J. V. Bonn, L. A. Iardella, and T. A
Provost, of this city, have just returned home
from California. The first named (of the late
Washington and California Mining Association)
informs us that Isaac Owens came as far as
Havana, and proceeded te New Orleans; Mr.
Mardcn is working at the carpentering busi
ness, nud has a ranche in the Huason valley;
the two Queens and Vermillion are mining on
the \ uba river; Wall and Horsey are keeping a
trading-post near Hamilton, on Feather river;
Gideon Brooke is at Marysville ; Fielder Ma^
gruder started from the placers on the 1st of
September, with the intention of returning to
the District of Columbia diggings ; Mr. Wardell
was understood to be at Bidwell'a bar, Feather
river; Wall and Dorsey are doing well; George
Young and Mr. Hills are on the south bank of
the Yuba. Five of the company have died
namely, Messrs. Bishop, Culverwell, Bates,
Dietz, and A. Garrett. None of the adventurers
have made fortunce.
Fastidious Tast*.?An amusing little inci
dent occurred at the Wright House last even
ing. A verdant-looking chap sat down to take
"some fillin, as Joe Lawson would say, and in
due time a waiter presented himself at the back
of our hero's chair, and inquired:
" Tea or coffee, sir?"
"Tea," he answered.
" What kind of tea ?"
Greeny looked up in the waiter's face, and,
with considerable emphasis, said, " Why tlort
tea, of course; I don't want your blamed sassa
fras stuff!"?Indianapolis Journal.
Too Many Books.?The booksellers say that
publications of books, within the last few years,
succeed each other with such rapidity that the
best works have much less chance of obtaining
a permanent reputation than formerly. The goo?l
books of this season are immediately pushed
aside by the good books of the next. They are
like pretty women passing by us in a great crowd;
we do not see them long enough to fall in lore
with them.?New York Evening Pott.
A writer, in describing the last scene in
Othello, has this exquisite passage: "Upon
which the Moor, seizing a bolster faU of ragt
andjtalouty, mothers her."
