THE CONSTANT FRIENDS. BY MRS. L. It. StGOORNKV. * , O, sweet soul'd Flowers! with robes so bright, Fair guests of Eden's birth, In changeful characters of Unlit, What lines of love divine ye write Upon llio troubled earth! Man sinned in Paradise and fell; IS it, when ilia storm arose, When thorns and brambles sow'd his path, And gentlest natures turu'd to wrath, Yet leagued not with his foes. Ye sinn'd not, though to liitu ye cbuig, When at toe guarded door The penal sword its terrors (lung, ..iiu we?"'!, flint With its naming tongue To enter there no more. Forth by his side, ye meekly fared With pure, reproachless eye; And, when the vengeful lion roar'd, A balmy gush of fragrance pour'd In hallow'd sympathy. Ye sprang amid the broken sod, His weary brow to kiss, Bloom'd at his feet, where'er he trod, And told his burden'd heart of God. And of a world of bliss. Ye bow'd the he ld, to teach him how He must himself decay, Yet dying, charg'd each tiny seed The earliest call of Spring to heed, And cheer his future way. From age to age, with dewy sigh, Even from the desert glade. Sweet words ye whisper, till ye die, Still pointing to that cloudless sky Where beauty cannot die. INTERESTING REPORT IN RELATION TO FOREIGN EMIGRANTS. The committee of the Board of Aldermen of the city of New York, to whom was referred the petition of seven hundred citizens, in rela tion to the subject of bonding Alien passengers, and the resolution of the Board to memorialize Congress on matters connected with the emi gration of foreign paupers and convicts, have made the following report, disclosing several startling facts: That the law of this State authorizes the Mayor of tlio city of N. York, to require bonds for every alien ipasscnger in a sum not exceed ing three hundred dollars, from the master of the vessel with two sureties, to provide for the support of any such person as shall be come chargeable to the city, at any time with in two years from the date of such bond. In lieu of such bonds, the Mayor has authority to compound for alien passengers on such terms as may be agreed upon, with the master or consignee. The importation and bonding of passengers under these provisions, have become matters of speculation, in which many individuals on both sides of the Atlantic are extensively engaged. The bonds of nine firms in this city exhibit the immense liabilities of sixteen millions of dollars. It is usual to include a whole cargo of passen gers in a single bond, according to the manifest of the captain, and it is suggested by the peti tioners, that the manifest does not always cor rectly exhibit the names and ages of all the passengers; hence it follows,that when the help less and destitute immigrant applies to the agent of the Alms House for relief, and is referred to the bondsmen of the cargo to which he claims to havo belonged, he is dismissed with the an swer that they have bonded no such person.— The pauper swears to th£ ship, and the time of his arrival; but if his name does not appear on the inanifost, his oath is considered insufficient to establish the liability of the bondsman, and the burthen of his support is thrown upon the city. . Your committee have before them the evi dence of several such cases, and while they make reasonable allowance for errors, they are constrained to believe that the charity of the ci ty has been frequently imposed upon by abuses of this description. Your committee will cite an instance to illus trate the spirit of this speculation. A vessel re cently arrived at this port with upwards of three hundred immigrants. In this lot were several whom the Alms House visitors believed to be utterly destitute, and therefore not proper subjects for commutation, except on an indem nity sufficient for their support; but they were nevertheless bonded by a speculator for a con sideration per head, so inadequate to the risk taken that the chance for any gain by the tram action could only exist in the hope to throw the destitute and decripit for a time on the charita ble societies of their countrymen for a partial support, and with the further aid of begging and their wits enable them to keep out of the Alms House until thoy could be sent into the interior, to become a charge on the county where they may halt; and if this disposition is not made of them, when the lien of the bond terminates they be come a permanent charge upon the city. A late letter from the agent of a foreign society in this city, states—"l have had hundreds of cases under my care of poor people which the com munes (towns) in Germany had to support.— They have been sent to this country penniless, and have called the moment they landed on the Bocicty for aid." In this way all the worth less and helpless immigrants are ultimately founu ill liie Alms House—a*burthen upon the eity's charity. Amongst the immigrants of the present year there have been an unusual number of young women far advanced in gestation, entirely un protected and destitute. The history of this class may be soon told. A few days or weeks after landing they are confined in tho Alms House. On recovering her strength, or as soon after as an opportunity occurs, the mother leaves the Alms House premises, and in most instances her offspring behind her. Within a year tho same woman presents herself at tho Alms House in a similar condition usbeforo, so that at the termination of the bondsman's lia bilities the city has a family of three persons to suppoit, in the place of one originally bonded. PRINTED AND PUBLISHED EVERY MORNING, BY BULL & TUTTLE, Wo. 13* BALTIMORE STREET, BALTIMORE, Md. ! Those children remain, of course, a charge foi nint tn It'll years, or until they are old enough to j be apprenticed out to labor for their own sup port, at a cost to the city of several hundred dot- t tars each. In confirmation of this statement, the com-| mittee make the following extract of a letter under date of the 7th ult., from a bondsman to I the agent of the Alms House, in relation to a j case of recent occurrence : " My oßject in now writing is, that I wish you to understand th'e history of those two sisters. They arrived here in a ship to my address, and shortly after they were sent to the Alms House, and there gave birth to children within four days of each other. I have given them about ten dollars since they left the Alms House, and now they come again. 1 have frequently offered to send them back to Europe. 1 wish to learn from you if I can send them back lawfully. The way to put a stop to j such characters corning here to contaminate the ] public, is to send them all back on their arrival." i As a further illustration of the result of the j present bonding system, in its application to' children, the committee present the following j statement: The whole number of children under the, protection and support of the Alms House, ap- j pears to be 821. Of these, 602 are at the farms j school, and 219 at the Alms Mouse, Bellevue. j Of those at the farms school, 457 aie the child- j Ten of foreign r>rnlu and 14u Amorieiiua:' more tjian three-fourths foreigneis, and all a j direct charge on the City Treasury. The farms' school includes only the children of three years j of ago and upwards. Of the 219 under that j age at Bellevue, 185 are placed without the walls at nurse, and 34 remain within. Of the j former, 137 are of foreign and 48 of native ori-' gin. Of the latter number, composed of the : latest born infants, 32 arc foreign and only two American, showing the ratio of the more re- j cent births to be seventeen foreigners to one .hue- j rieaii. Of the whole number of children, 626 j have foreign parentage, and 195 American, ex-j hibiting the average of more than three foreign-j ers to one native! and an alarming increase of the ratio of foreigners in the more recent births.; The shipment to this country of the inmates j of the poor-houses of Europe, more especially ; of England and Germany, is no new thing. It has been carried on quietly for several years, and so advantageously, and so entirely without remonstrance or complaint on our part, that j the governments of those countries have ex-: tended their plan of operations, and included of late a worse class of individuals. The pol- ] icy succeeding so well with their paupers, they , have recently commenced opening their pris ons, and banishing their convicts to our shores. We have before us satisfactory evidence that extensive contracts have been made and are now making to ship oft' to this country, and to ] Texas, whole classes of refuse population —the ] i lawless and depraved, as well as the destitute j , —vagabonds arid thieves, as well as paupers.— i | Wo are also satisfied that men of high distinc- | tion, and connected with the governments of 1 the nations to which we refer, have contribut- I cd money to prosecute this infamous system. It 1 is also well ascertained that Botany Bay con tributes her annual quota of individuals who liavo served their probationary term in that interesting settlement. Such are too many of; the immigrants thrown upon our shores, to dif fuse the contagion of their vices and their crimes among our people—to corrupt the mor- j als and prey upon the means of our citizens.— ! Such arc the seeds of American Common wealths, by the toleration of American legisla tors! The evil is urgent, alarming, and on the j rapid increase, and demands the prompt inter- j ference of our national government in the pas sage of remedial laws. To establish the important fact referred to an ] j relation to the immigration of criminals and i I paupers, they present the following extract : iioin the report of last month of the Deputy I Keeper of the Penitentiary on Blackwcll's Is land. Whole number of inmates of the Peni tentiary and City Prison 1419, showing an in crease of more than four hundred sinco July] last—a period of five months. Of this number : there are in the penitentiary— Native Americans, - - - - 933 j Natives of Ireland, 546 do. England. '.J do. Scotland, 20 do. Wales, 4 do. Canada?, Is do. Nova Scotia, 4 do. New Brunswick, B—Subjects of Great Britain, 869 do. Germany, - - - - 42 do. France, .... 7 do. Sweden, - - - - 3 i do. West Indies, ... 7 do. Spain, - - - 4 do. South America, ... 7 Blacks, - - - - 136 Total in Penitentiary, 1198 in City Prison there are Native Americana 3!) Natives of Ireland, - - .98 do. England and Scotland, - 26 Subject? of Great Britain, - —192 do. Germany 10, Sweden 19, France 2 24 Black?, 3S Total in City Priaon, 221 1419 In the Alms House and its appendages, ex clusive of the prisons, there were at the same time 2,938 inmates; making the whole number of prisoners and paupors, 4,344, and showing an increase since July last of nearly 1000! Be sides this immense burthen upon the City Trea sury, th echarity in small sums distributed to the "out-door poor," a class of poor people who make some exertions to support themselves, and who, by a little aid, judiciously administer ed, are prevented from becoming wholly chargeable to the city, exccods now $2OOO a month. Such is the situation of the city of New York in respect to the felons, vagrants, and pauperß, thrown upon her for support. Should our city Government longer submit to it without an effort for relief? The evils of which we com plain, are now confined in a great measure to oui own city—but should we therefore be cut off from a remedy"! Aro we therefore entitled to no sympathy or consideration from our breth ren in otiior sections of the country! Will they continue to fold their arms in indifference, and withhold assistance, because it is New York alone thatsuffers? Our moralsare coriuptcd— our resources are consumed—our lives are en dangered, by the hordes of convicts and paupers which are annually thrown upon us. The calamity cannot long continue a local one.— It must sooner or later extend itself, till it per vades the eountry, end until all sections are made to feel the curse qf it. Is it not possible to de vise adequate legislation to arrest the progress of this alarming evil? Is it not due to them selves and their other constituents, as well as to the citizens of New York, that Congress FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 17, 1845. | should at once pass laws for the protection, the | necessity of which all sections of the country will soon bitterly feel? And if the Federal i Government should fail in its duty in this re , spect, and we should continue to be overrun | by the worthless and the dissolute of other coun tries, we must do what we can as a City to pro- I tect ourselves, and to compel them, by a rigid I enforcement of salutary mviiicipal laws, to saek other quurters for their depredations, and to throw themselves upon other charities for their support. We are ready to afford an asylum to the honest and industrious of all nations. The humble and the oppressed are freely welcom ed to ottr shore, the poor as freely us the opulent, when poverty does not shrink from labor. But we protest most strongly against the free admission to our territory of the out casts and vagabonds, whom crime has rendered a terror to their own governments, or whom dissolute idleness has thrown upon those gov ernments for support. Such a policy is fatal to our peace, our self-respect, our interests as a people, our honor as a nation. The interests of all American citizens, of foreign as well as native birth, are alike involved in arresting and correcting it. The number of immigrants commuted and bonded arriving in this city the past year, ex ceeds 60,000, and we hear of arrangements in r..r ' , . . iportations tnun nave ever, before been made. We may expect thousands ! of paupers and felons thrown upon us this year, i at an earlier period than heretofiare. Agents of the speculators are abroad, and scattered i over England, Ireland and Germany, to in fluence emigrants to come in certain vessels, bargain for their passage, and generally aid in the enterprise. It is frequently alleged by European writers, that the Americans, as a people, exhibit a greater proportion of crime and ruffianism than any other civilized nation. If this be true, why | is it so? To what arc wo indebted lor this 1 state of things? Let Great Britain, who fur-j nishes these slanders most abundantly to the | world, furnish the answer to them. Groat | Britain alone supplies subjects for ourPeniten- [ tiary in the proportion of 669 out of 1198, arid ; for our City Prison and Alms House, a corros- i ponding proportion. Can we not then well turn back the foul calumny upon its authors? And if they continue to speculate as they do j upon our dishonor as a nation, let them point to any act in the history of our state or nation-! al governments that equals in turpitude and j atiocity, the infamous system of exporting their paupers, ruffians and convicted felons to the shores of a friendly nation, to eat out its sub stance, and destroy its repose. In view of the j facts herein related, your Committee would suggest. Ist. That Congress be memorialized for the i passage of a law instructing our Consuls abroad to examine the emigrants for this country at their respective places of shipment, and if they find, on examination, that such emigrants have not been inmates of a prison or poor-house, to give thein a certificate to that effect, and when not satisfied to this effect, they shall refuse the certificate. They should retain respectively an accurate copy of the manifest certified, and transmit the same to the Mayor of New York, or other port to which any vessel shipping such passengers may be bound, by the English mail steamers, or some other steam conveyance likely to anticipate the arrival of such vessel. ! On the arrival of such vessel, the two inani- j lcsts of passengers shall be critically compared, and the immigrants shall be examined by at least two porsons appointed for that purpose by the city authorities. If there are more im migrants than thus certified as proper persons i to be admitted to land 011 our shores, the, Mayor, or in bis absence, the next officer in authority, shall order thorn to he placed in the alms-house or prison, as circumstances shall warrant, and there kept until the vessel is ready to return, when they shall he re-shipped 011 board said vessel for the purpose of transpor tation to the country from whence they came. The captain, owner, or consignee to be respon sible for all charges and expenses the city has suffered thereby, and for which the said cap tain, owner, or consignee shall give satisfacto ry bonds in the penalty of one thousand dol lars for each individual so taken charge of by the authority of the Mayor or other person next in authority. 2d. That the city of New York and other commercial cities he authorized and have power to ship back at any time any and all immigrants to the country from whence they came, whether certified by the Consul or not, on the discovery at any tune within two years thereafter of such immigrant being imposed upon us contrary to the rule established, and that he or she had ever been the tenant of a poor house as a vagrant or pauper, or of a pri son as a criminal, or had been supported as a beggar by any town, commune, individual or charitable society. 3d. That the State of New York should per mit no immigrant to land until a fee of not less than two dollars per head be received, to be paid into tho city treasury, for the use of the alms-house department, for the support of tho foreign poor; and authorize the Mayor to demand a bond for five years in the sum of $5OO per head in addition to the said fee, fur any, or for all such immigrants as the Inspec tors, or the Mayor, or any two Aldermen or Assistant Aldermen shall consider likely to be come a charge upon the city. In conclusion, your committee respectfully recommend the adoption of the following resolution: Roolved, That the Counsel of the Board be, and he is hereby instructed to prepare memo rials to the State Legislature and to Congress, .respectively, praying for speedy legislation on -the subjects, and to the effect herein before set forth. WM. S. MILLER, WM. GALE, WM. B. COZZENS. New York, 6th January, 1845. A BOT KILLED. TWO boys named Goodwin, residing at Gowan's, Long Island, went out to shoot squirrels on Saturday. Just as the elder one raised his gun to fire, it prematurely dis charged, and the contents lodged in the neck of the younger, causing almost immediate death. POSTAGE REFORM. It is thought that a re duction of postage will not be effected this winter by Congress, although there is a decided majority in both houses in favor of the measure. I SIX DAYS LATER FROM EUROPE.

The Bishop of Exeter's letter to the clergy of his diocese is creating great excitement.— Remonstrances are pouring in from nearly eve ry parish and several distinguished Church men have flkpressed their Conviction that a firm ; stand must now be made against the Romish tendency in the establishment. A Constantinople letter of the 20th, states that a scrioua misunderstanding had taken place between Abdullah Pacha, the Governor of Trebisonde, and tho English Consul at that place. The Governor, in consequence of pique against the Consul, had ordered 2000 blows to be indicted, for some real or supposed offence, upon a young Greek who was under the Con ' snl's protection, and the victim had already rc j ceived 800, and was almost dead, when the j Consul reached the spot, and insisted on tho re- I mission of the remainder of the sentence. The ! letter adds, that Sir Stratford Canning has or | dered an inquiry into tho circumstances, and j declared that if the Consul's account should be I substantiated, he will demand not only the dis missal of the Governor, but some signal chas tisement. The agitation for the repeal of the import duty on cotton wool is still progressing. In Liverpool, Stockport, and other places, meet ings have been held, and memorials to the Lords of the Treasury adopted, soliciting investiga tion into the effects of this tax upon the staple manufacture of the country, with a view to its immediate removal. Madrid papers to the 3d have been received. The accounts from the north of Spain arc some of them of a painful character. It is said that the disclosures madebyZur bano'ssons led to the apprehension of M. Gam boa, Gen.

Coodey, giving a detailed account of the cap ture of Bean Starr, a notorious outlaw and murderer, who, with his brothers, has been for six years engaged in the commission of robbe ries and murders in the Choctaw and Chero kee nations, and on the Arkansas line. Learn ing where Starr was, he, with nine Cherokccs under his command, followed him; and, while engaged ill searching a house in which they supposed him to be, Starr catne riding up at full speed. He was within fifty yards of the house when he perceived the party, and immediately turned and fled. At that moment, and a few seconds thereafter, ten shots were fired at him, three oi which took elfeet, two in the right arm and one through the body.
