The Spirit or tue Irish. Few can have any
adequate idea of how inflamed is the Irish
mind without listening to the organs of dis
content in Ireland. It is, by many, confident
ly predicted that an outbreak is appointed
for after harvest; and certainly these predic
tions gather force from the inflamatory style
in which the people of Ireland are urged to
Revolution. To what bold extremities those
who urges it on have already gone may be in
ferred from the complexion of one of these or-
gans tne new "irisn reion. me. louowing
is one of its mottos:
"Our independence must be had at all haz-
zards. If the man of property will not sup

One of its editors. T. Devin Be illy, has pub
lished a long and most vituperative address to
the Lord Lieutenant. It is surcharged with
the brightest inective. Every shaft hurled at
the object of the assailant is envenomed from
point to feather. He compliments Lord
Clarendon with the title of "My Lord Assas
sin." "My Lord Assassin, be says;

The class of Irishmen represented by such
organs aim at absolute independence of Eng
land, But this is not universally the object of
even the agitators in Ireland some go for
mere repeal of the Union, and hold back from
union with the preferred "League, because
that organization pre-supposes a resort to phy
sical force and a speedy separation between
the two Islands. There is, too, a certain por
tion which, though having some influence and
power, cannot numerically, or otherwise, be
very stroug.thatresistsagitation on any grounds;
so that, with the military force which the gov
ernment has in Ireland, the issue of any out
break at the present time appears to us doubt
Meanwhile Iba Irish, and their mends in
this country are busy. Secretly, there is rea
son to believe, movements are going forward,
ostensibly with a view to aid the Irish in Ire
land, but really, perhaps, to aid them in Can-
a mwmm - m m
ada. i ne most la vorable leader ot any pro
jected enterprise in that direction is Gen.
Shields, who, it may be inferred, is nothing
loth to display his love for Ireland, even by
travelling that rather perilous path. Canada
insurrections usually wait for frost, and, un
less England greatly charges her polity towards
Ireland, next winter may show us stirring
times on the border.
Capital Illubtbatio. The editor of the
Haverhill (Mass.) Gazette, in a dignified and
sarcastic reply to an insulting communication
abusing him for supporting Gen. Taylor, thus
forcibly illustrates the position of a "disaflect
ed Whig" by a very striking simile:
"Our writings against the nomination
of Tavlor are Quoted with all imaginable ab
surdity, as if they pledged us to oppose his
election after the question is reduced to him or
Cass. We are accused of dishonesty, and ask
ed why we do not go to "picking pockets for a
living, if we cannot afford to be a manr We
can afford to be a man, but not to be an idiot
and feel that we can no more justly be charged
with dishonesty and inconsistency than the
man who would refuse to take passage across
the ocean in a packet ship because he had ob
jected for some reason to that particular ship
being put upon the line. According to these
wise casuists, he would throw himself into
mud-scow, without the slightest regard to its
capacity of ever reaching the destined shore
snd to do all in his power, by torpedoes, fire
balls, and false lights, to wreck the ship to
which he has objec ted.
Anecdote or Lewis Cass. When Lewis
Cass was minister to France, in 1837, accord
inv to his btopranher. "he visited Italv. Sicilv
Malta, ureece, the Islands ol the Archipelago
o i z z . . f: . rf
Constantinople, and the Black bea, Lgypt, ral
estine, and Syria." Twenty-five intermediate
places are mentioned by his biographer ashav
ing been visited by our minister. This plea
sure trip was doubtless very pleasant to Mr
Cass, especially as it was not very expensive.
His biographer forgot to mention that during
mssDsence ne was arawing a salary as minis
ter to France, although not performing anv o
the duties. He also forgot to mention that
the c rea ter part of the journey was made in
government ship, free of expense. During his
absence, he very kindly, and doubtless with
much ceremony bottled up some of the waters
of the river Jordon.and on his return present
ed it to his quandam friend, Louis Phillipp,
to be used in baptising his grandson, the young
Count of Paris, heir to the throne. This little
incident was unfortunately overlooked in pre
paring the biography of the Republican would
be President, and we accordingly put it on re
cord. Doblon Journal.

The Dr. Says that the brandy seized in the
streets was adulterated, and colored with tan

To this latter acting on the brains of men
excited by combat ami evil passions, he at
tributed to the peculiar delirium exhibited by
several patients, and which gave rise to a sus

Limerick. Mr. Meagher s apprehension caus
ed the utmost excitement in Waterford. The
chapel bells were rung, thousands of confeder
ates assembled, and it required all theauthori
ty and influence of the gifted and chivalrous
captive aided by the Catholic clergymen, to
prevent the people from tailing upon the mill
ary and police. As it was they stoned the au
thonties and cut off one body of the troops
from the other. They created a formidable
barricade which impeded the progiess of the
escort, and for miles harrassed and hunted the
procession; but happily no life was lost. Du
ring the week Mr. Darcey McGee and Mr. Hay
wood were also arrested for sedition, but the
bills werethrown out by the Wicklow grand
iurv on Thursday. The excitement, not onlv
in Dublin but throughout Ireland, is intense
and the note of preparation' is everywhere
sounded. The flag of revolution has extended
o England and scattered there. The United
Repealers and Chartists are rapidly organizing
and arming. The Nation, notwithstanding its

France. Another plot has been discovered
in Pans. A correspondent of the London
Globe says that the workmen of the atalien
nationaux, and other turbulent workmen, had
resolved to make another attempt on the 14th
the day originally fixed upon for the five sous
banquet. It is now known that this was mere
ty a pretext ior getting together an immense
body, most ot whom were to carry arms secre
ted under their blouses, whilst others were on
the first signal of outbreak, to proceed to the
depots of muskets and amunition, which were
to be made in the quarter three or four days be
lore the intended meeting, it is said now
that such of the projectors of this plot as have
not been captured for the part they took in the

been organising their forces for a final and des
perate struggle. Fortunately, however, the
entire plot has been discovered by the govern
menu xne government is in possession o
the whole details, and many of the intented
chiefs have been arrested. Gen. Cavaignac
and den. Lamonciere, in accord with the com
mander-in-chief of the national guard, have
adopted apian for the prevention of barricades
which must be effectual. Patrols will be con
tinually on foot during the night; but the na
tional guard, on whose zeal and courage the
greatest reliance can be placed, are lobe sum
moned as soon as there is an attempt made to
move the pavement, and are to put in force
the clause in the decree which assimilates the
makf r of a barricade to the insurgents taken
with arms. Before, tAis action was merely
an infringement of the laws of what is called
la police simple; but now any man assisting
in forming a barricade can be at once shot.
General Cavaignac is said to be resolved to act
with stern severity if another outbreak should

that the accounts from Paris, dated July 13, are

the merits of the question, but from reasons o

latter party. The greatest activity has contin

at excavation have been attempted in numer
ous places. One of these is close to the chain

From the London Times July 15
Notwithstanding an official announcement
of the Government, that no danger of an out
break existed, tne raris papers ot yesterda
show that much apprehension prevailed thro1
out the French capital. AU the political nris
ons of Paris to the detached forts several es
caped on the way. The National guard and
garrison were under arms at the departure o
our express, and cannon were planted at van
ous poiuts. Our correspondent expresses hi
conviction, nevertheless, that no movement o
.the disaffected would take place.
The following are samples of the reports in
One is, that a general murder of the members'
oi tue Asseinoiy is inienueu, means oeing or
ganized for executing this simultaneously at
their respective places ot abode. Another is,
that an organized assault will be made on the
boarding schools, where young persons of the
one and the other sex are educated; that these
shall be captured and kept as hostages to be de-
ivered up only on the payment ot a ransom in
mouey, and the concession of such political
measures as the insurgents may require.
Other reported projects have for their object
the blowing up of portions of the capital, by
means of gunpowder deposited in the quarters
of the catacombs, sewer-pipes, cellars and
other excavations which already exist, besides
excavations expressly executed for the purpose.
It is understood that the Pensionnes and other
establishments for education have been placed
under careful surveillance. Again it is said
that a column of 40,000 ouvriers, without work
intend to march to the National Assembly and
demand peremptorily tobe fed or to be shot.
In Spain, the insurrection in favor of the
Count de Montemolin fills the Government
with alarm.
The cholera appears to rage, with great inten
sity at Moscow. From the 12th to the 19th of
June there were 1,724 new cases, and 928
deaths. On the last named day not less than
327 persons were seized with this dreadful
malady, and 153 others died. The cholera is
gaining ground at Kasan, Nina, Novogorod,

Roads of the akciext Peruvians. The
public works of the Peruvians are among the
most magnificent and wonderful that have ev

the remains of temples, fortresses, tsr raced
mountains, great military roads, aqueducts.and
other public works, which astonish him by
1 1 . i . I
tneir numoer, tne massive cuaracier ut wie ms
terials, and the granduer of the designs. Among
tnese tneir great roaas were prooauiy uie most
remarkable. There are many of these roads,
. different parts of the kingdom;
but the most considerable were the two which
extended from Quito to Cuzo, and thence South
towards Chili. One of these roads passed over
the grand plateau, and the other along the low
land on the borders of the ocean. The former
was much the most difficult achievement, and
no doubt a work of far greater labor than the
road over the Alps. It was carried orer path
less wastes, buried in snow; galleries were cut
for leagues through living rocks, rivers and
friehtful chasms were passed by means of
bridges which swung suspended in the air;
precipices were' scaled by stairways cut in
the native bed; ravines of hideous depth were
filled up with solid masonry; in short, all the
difficulties which beset a wild and mountain
ous country, and which might appal the most
courageous engineer of modern times,were en
countered and successfully overcome. The
length of this road is variously estimated from
fifteen hundred to two thousand miles. If was
built of heavy flags ot freestone, and in some
parts at least, covered with a bituminous ce
ment, which time made harder than the stone
itself. In some places where the ravines were
filled up with masonry, the mountain torrents,
wearing on it lor ages, have lorced a passage
-through the base, and left the su
mass sun spanning tne vauey ime an arcu.
Ingenious bridges, made of the tough fibres
of the magney, were thrown over the boldest
of the s'reims. ' These osiers were woven into
.tl . I 11 l!l t.
cables of the thickness ofa man's body. These
when covered with piauk,and deiended by a
railin,aflbrded a safe passage for the traveller.
The length of these aerial bridges, sometimes
exceeding two hundred f et, caused them to
dip with an alarming inclination towards the
center, while the motion given by the travel
ler occasioned an oscillation still more fright
ful, as bis eye wandered over the dark abyss of
waters, which foamed and tumbled many fath
oms beneath. Yet those light fabrics were
crossed without fear by the Peruvians, and are
still retained by the Spaniards ever those deep
and impetuous streams which are impassible
by other means? j
- . .a .
The other great road or tne incas, layinrougu
the level country between the Andes and the
ocean. The land was low and sandy, but the
road was over a causeway, raised on a high
embankment of earth, defended on either side
by a parapet ot clay, and trees and ordoriferous
shrubs were planted along the margin, regaling
the sense of the traveller with their perfumes,
and refreshing him by their shade.
All along these highways, caravansaries, or
tambos, as they were called, were erected, at
the cistance of tenor twelve miles from each
other, for the accommodation of travellers.
Some of these buildings were on an extensive
scale, consisting of a fortress, barracks, and
other military works. These were evidently
intended for the accommodarion of the impe
rial armies, when on their march through the
country. These costly and admirable works
have been left by the Spaniards to fall into de
cay, but their broken ruins still bear evidence
of their primitive grandeur.
A Correct Life of Lewis Ca ss.The Wheel

Cass, in which several incidents will be nam

lustrated by an engraving of the identical black
cockade that he wore, the full picture of the
peddling wagou he sent out from Detroit to
follow his payment of Indian annuities, and

Indiana Finaivces. J. Collins, Esq.,
Stale agent of Indiana, writes to the editor
of the New Albany Bulletin, from New York
under date of tbo 15tli ult.:
Nearly all the July interest lias been paid
all has been paid that has been called for
and I am paying out daily. The July divi
dend is less than 1 expected to have to meet
when I was West. I then supposed it would
be near $93,000, but upon my return I
found that nearly a quarter ofa million of
dollars of bonds which I expected would be
surrendered had not been brought in; 1 hope
they will be surrendered, however, shortly.
and that will leave outstanding of our old
debt a little more thin a million and a half.
I do not know whether I shall not go to Eu
rope to get the holders of those bonds to come
into the arrangement with the State. The
whole being thus arranged would place our
public debt entirely within our control, and
alter looö make the whole ot our interest,
to be paid out semi-annually, a little over
three hundred thousand dollars a vear.
This may be accomplished without any in
crease of taxation. Though until the Trea
sury notes are all abwrbed the State will be
embarrassed to raiso her semi-annual pay
menu in sound money.

The Philadelphia Sunday Despatch thinks
that the new law securing to married worn
en their rights of property is destined to rev
oluiionize the hymeneal relation in that
S ate. Tho absurd old fashioned idea tha
the interests ot wedded couple should be one
and indivisible, is forever put to rest. The
rich wife, instead of being at the mercy o
her lord, in a thousand . matters pertaining
to her comfort, may rigidly enforce a perfor
ma nee of the courticg-time vows, by simply
lightning the purse strings. Shawls, bonnets
and new dresses, sha may buy as many of as
she pleases, whether her husband grumbles
or assents; and, if unable to pay, she may
enjoy the delightful privilege ot a persona
introduction to sheriffs and constables.
The subject is suggestive of many thoughts
and among them is one touching the charge
that will now ensue in mortal epistolary lit
