Abbott Lawrence's Pilgrimage In Ireland.
A certain little poem relates how a certain per
sonage one day took a walk to pee bow his snog lit
tle farm, the earth, went on. Though it is unncces
ry to travel so far for a precedent or a justification
of a tour which the American minister is making in
Ireland, there is one point in common between the
two points viz : that Ireland to all practical purpo
ses belongs to that power whose minister" it is now
entertaining. Mr. Abbott Lawrence gives way to a
very natural "instinct, when he makes a pilgrimage
to the hearths and the altars that feed the United
States. The American who stands on the quays at
New York, 6ces a vast human tide pouring in at the
rate of a thousand a day to swell the numbers, the
wealth, and the power of his country. He sees that
it was the direst necessity which drove them from
the land of their fathers, and he recognises in that
necessity the providential means by which the vast
continent of North America should be added to the
dominion of man. He hears the sad tale of immi
grants, and sees it too generally confirmed by their
miserable aspect. His own political system will na
turally be with the supposed victims of tyrannical
laws and aristocratic extortion. On further ac
quaintance with these hapless refugees his interest
cannot but increase, for he finds them affectionate
and hopeful, genial and witty, industrious and inde
pendent in fact, the element of which great nations
are made. Hence the desire to see that strange re
gion of the earth where such a people was produced
and could not stay an island the misfortunes of
which are destined to form 60 conspicuous a feature
in American story. The terrible incidents of the
last six years not to go further back will be the
domestic iraditions of half the American people, and
the dreadful scenes of fever and famine, which have
so often shocked our readers, will pass from father
to son for many generations on the banks of the Mis
sissippi, or the shores of the Pacific. It is this nurse
ry of citizens, this seed plot of transatlantic States,
this great human preserve that Mr. Lawrence is
now exploring, as we think with as natural a curios
ity as if he had sought, with the crowd, the ancient
seats of science and art, and were measuring the
Acropolis of Athens, or the Forum of Rome.
His excellency has too much respect for this coun
try, and too just a sense of his position, to let the
Irish see how an American cannot but regard them.
He knows very well that they are all his own fellow
citizens in embryo, and that every Celt will one day
renounce the sceptres and coronets of the older
world. It is better for all parties, perhaps, that it
should bo so, little as we may like to see onr society,
our laws, and our sovereigns the object of indifference.
Mr. Abbot Lawrence says nothing of all this. The
Irish flock to an American minister as to an angel
from heaven, for if he is curious to see the place
the Irish come from, thev are equally curioMS to see
a man from America the goal of all their hopes
and expectations. They have set their face towards
America, and as men on a march see chiefly those
who are before them, on the spot which they will
the next moment tread themselves, so the new world
is every year the more vivid, and the old world more
faint in the Irish imagination. Hence it is that Mr.
Lawrence finds himself received with almost the ho
nors of royalty. Railway directors and corporations
give him special trains, banquets, and addresses, and
every city prepares an ovation. What can Lord
Clarendon, with the very best intentions, offer to
compare with the sympathies of a man whose coun
try has welcomed a million of Irishmen in the last
four years 1 The railway companies have a special
interest in these civilities. They have just been
completed in time to convey the aboriginees of Ire
land to the ports where they take leave of their
country. Strange to say, they derive a fleeting pros
perity from depopulation and despair. So. at Gal
way, Mr. Abbott Lawrence is eagerly laid hold of as
a patron of the plan for making that city a transat
lantic packet station and an emigrant depot. At
Cork it may be supposed that similar expectations
have helped the enthusiasm evoked by an arrival of
an American minister. Mr. Lawrence, however,
to his credit, 'speaks only of such a communication
as might be supposed to exist between two equally
spreading and equally increasing nations. He deli
cately avoids any allusion to that uniform onward
movement vestigia nulla rctorsum from Ireland to
the opposite shore.
In the face of facts, it certainly required all the
force of politeness in an American Minister, stand
ing at Galway or at Cork, to wish happiness for the
Irish in their or ti country, and to point out the na
tural resources by which six million, eight million,
ten million, or even fifteen million people could be
sustained in Ireland. The prosperity and happiness
he speaks of may some day reign over that beautiful
land. Its fertile soil, its rivers and lakes, its water
power, its minerals, and other materials for the
wants and luxuries of man, may one day be develop
ed : but all appearances are against the belief that
this will ever happen in the days of the Celt. That
tribe will soon fulfil te great law of Providence
which seems to enjoin and reward the union of races.
It will mix with the Anglo American, and be known
no more as a jealous and separate people. Its pres
ent place will be occupied by the more mixed, more
docile, and more serviceable race, which has long
borne the yoke of sturdy industry in this island,
which can submit to master and obey the law. This
is no longer a dream, for it is a fact now in progress,
and every day more apparent. No kind wishes, no
legislative measures can stay the exodus of a people
who have once found the path from intolerable degra
dation to comfortable and dignified independence.
Even if the rulers of this country should change
their mind, and resolve not to let the people go, that
resistance would only add another impetus to the
movement. As the Irish have clung together at
home, so will they cling together in their wander
ings. That at least is what they do now. It is
scarcely possible to suppose Mr. Abbot Lawrence
blind to what passes before his eyes, and we can on
ly admire the dexterous politeness with which he
expresses his sympathy and his hope for the Irish,
with scarcely a hint at their flight from the land of
their lathers to the country or which he is the rep
rcsentative.
Plank Roads. Some one writes from Montgome
ry, Alabama, as follows. We quote from the Mobile
Tribune :
" The plank roads building from the city, and the
manufacturing spirit evinced in some quarters, are
admirable ingredients in her progressive spirit. The
effect of these plank roads in conducting trade to a
place like this is inconceivable. Four small mules
drew easily in .he other day sixteen bales of cotton,
and the planter said he intended in his next load to
haul in twenty 8 to 10,000 pounds. These roads
will be found to be really less costly I believe to the
people, than their execrable county roads, for the
time they are required to work on them laid out ju
diciously would build the road in the first place, and
the travel over them by persons of other states or
counties, would more than keep them up. This econ
omy is well understood in Kentucky and Tennessee.
They build fine turnpikes, and strangers (who can
not be called on to keep them in order) pay for them
and their repairs."
No Jews in Wall Strekt. The New York cor
respondent of the Washington Republic, in a recent
letter, f-ays:
" It is a remarkable fact, which I do not remember
bavins: seen noted by any money-article writer, that
there is not a single Jew belonging to the Board of
Brokers, nor among the leading monetary managers of
Wall street, a member of the Hebraic family. A few
years sine?, the leading houses in Wall street were the
Jot-ephs, the Seixases, Nathans, Levys, Henriquezes,
&c; but they have all hail to give place to a keener
race, whose ark was the Mayflower. Among the 'out
siders who hang round the entrance to the brokers'
hoard, there are a good many of Israel itish blooJ, but
they have lost caste in the holy of holies in the busi
ness world.''
A Strange Scene and Strange Actors. On
Tuesday last, an incident occurred on the stage of
the Cirque Natiomfl whicli was not anticipated by
the company. One of the pieces of the evening was
" L'Ours et 1' Homme .Sanvace," the character of
Bruin being played by a real live bear. The animal
had even played his part in a manner most credita
ble to a bear, but on the evening in question he, in
the midst of an important part, became strangely
agitated, and looked very wildly towards where he
had no business to look at all. It was discovered,
t-iat the cause of this unusual exhibition, was a cat,
Vrno hai come upon the stage, and who wa9 making
a most ferocious back at the bear, which showing
signs of an angry nature, bo frightened Bruin, that
he made one bound into a pit, and ran along the
heads of the spectators in a manner which very much
astonished those travelled on, and occasioned loud
'JUrsts nF
y '.'From-the Memphis Enquirer
Stoning the Wrong Honte. ; :
We heard rather a good story . the other day, which,
although it may lose iu our telling, we cannot refrain
repeating. f ivC
In the town of Raleigh, in ihis county, was and
Mill is an excellent inn, which in court time, was fre
quented by Judges, Lawyers, Litigants and Jurors.
Upon this occasion. Judge B as sound a law
yer as he was an inveterate humorist, was holding a
court at Raleigh Several very difficult cases were to
be tried, one of which having been submitted in the
evening, the Jury were escorted to a room in, an ad
joining building connected with the inn, and familiarly
Known lo me naDiiuaies as woiher." In tne same
building were also lodged a number of voune disciples
of Blackstone, who compensated themselves for their
professional labors by a friendly game of the classic
amusement of " Poker." Their creature comforts were
attended to by a one-eyed negro, who rejoiced in the
name of " Jake." It seems that this functionary had
some trouble with the Jury, which- resulted in the in
troduction of his back to the cat. On the other hand,
" Jake " was a special favorite with the young law
yers, who paid him liberally, and for whom he enter
tained a corresponding regard. Under these circum
stances, it would not be a matter of doubt as to which
party was most carefully waited on, by the sable mer
cenary of gin and juleps.
Judge B , in the meantime, was lodged in the
main building of the hotel. With him, also, Jake wa
a favorite, and after he had concluded the examina
tion of some papers, he addressed the attendant with
enquiries as to what the young gentlemen '' were
doing. ;
" Nothin, massa, nothin ! only a little game of po
ker dat all."
" Eh ! that's all."
" Yes, sah ! dat all !"
" The young scamps! They ought to be at their
books ! a nice way to procure their cases ! To-morrow
some of them will be asking me to put off iheir
trials, because they have not time to gel ready!" grum
bled the Judge ; " I say, Jake, can you get me a pile
of bricks ?"
"Sartin Judge I's git a pile of Inicks old oven
brak get bats."
Very well go bring a pile into the yard."
."Yes, sar !" said the obsequious darkie, and in a
short time he returned with the assurance that the
bricks were ready.
The Judge accompanied him to the yard.
" Now, Jake, tell me which room these fellows are
in?"
Dat de room, massa ! dat room !" but the cunning
negro, instead of indicating that occupied by the law
yers, pointed to the one in which the unoffending Ju
rors were in deliberation.
" Oh ! ho ! now, Jake, do as I do !" and suiting the
action to trie word, his honor commenced pouring a
perfect Btorm of brickbats against the room of the stjp
posed delinquents. Bang! bang! they went, Jake's
missiles performing no secondary part in the concert,
until the pile was exhausted, and the startled Jurymen
began to imagine themselves assailed by a mob of the
whole town. Still they could not escape, nut huddled
together, bore the assault.
On his side, the Judge, totally unconscious that he
had been stoning his own Jurymen, was chuckling
over the dismay he imagined he had brought upon the
lawyers.
They did not, however, as he expected, vacate the
premises, and he prepared for a second bombardment
In the meantime, Jake, convulsed with laughter, had
gone to the room of the lawyers.
" Yah ! yah ! yah !" screamed the negro, rolling in
laughter, " dy'e hear 'em? did you hear the bricks?
Wait a leetle ! hear more by-m-by," and he proceeded
as clearly as his cachinatory paroxysms would aliow
him, to explain the mistake into which he had led his
honor.
He had scarcely withdrawn when Judge B. sum
moned him to collect another pile of bricks, which
was torthcoming as readily as the first. I he same tor
nado visited the astonished Jury, but the same remit
followed, for the very good reason that they could
not get out it they would. J he Judge, supposing
them the gamesters, was proportionably irritated that
he could not break up their part'.
"Jake!"
- Yes, sah !"
"bring another piie oi bricks!" and once more
these formidable projectiles were laid before him.
Now Jake, at the windows."
Sm ish ! crash ! whiz ! bang ! they went, and glass
sashes, and everything else gave way, as brick after
brick penetrated the Jury room. The fortress was no
longer tenable the laws of arms justified a capitula
tion, and a general fight took place.
Unfortunately the Judge, in his zeal and wrath, nev
er thought of making his retreat, and as the Jurors
were escaping, imagine their horror at discovering that
the learned Judge himself was their assailant, and had
been beseiging them during the night after this extra
judicial fashion. Too lxte the Judge found out his
mistake; and, petrified with astonishment, he stood de
tected with his hand raised in the act of hulling a
brick through the windows of the Jury room.
Great was the confusion ! That Judge B
should do such a thing! That a high functionary
would so far compromise the decorum of his character,
the dignity of his office ! It could not have been cred
ited, had it not been seen but, nnfortunately, the
Judge was detected in flagrante delicto.
The only way left was to make a full explanation,
and this the Judge did, with many a muttered maledic
tion on Jake, who had "done" him so completely, and
made him the means of closing accounts with the Ju
ry. The lawyer munificently rewarded Jake, upon
whom the Judge could not very well take vengeance
without admitting his confederacy with him. And Ju
rors ever afterwards were careful of drawing the wrath
of the dusky dignitarv of Coilier.
The Judge acknowledged he was beaten, and inter
fered no more with his young lawyers, at their games
of " Poker."

i The Picayune gives the following account of the
nuptials of the Princess Adelaida Clotilda Louisa
Quashee, sister of the King of the Alosquitoes :'
; t? v-: Grettown, Sept. 11,1851
The day dawned with its usual splendor; myriads
of feathered songsters filled the air with their sweet
melodies ; the placid waters in the Bay of Bluefields
were undisturbed by a single ripple, and the little
niggers eat on their haunches, grinning with plea
sure and waiting for sunrise.' All nature, in fne,
was in sweet repose. Suddenly the spell was bro
ken. . The sound of a horn was heard from the dis
tant hills, startling the quiet citizens of Bluefields
from their slumbers. The signal was answered from
every hill and rivulet in the vicinity. These sounds
were followed by the barking of dogs, screeching of
parrots, and bleating of goats, until all the discorcUj
ant sounds known on earth seemed mingled together '
in sweet confusion. The martial music approached
nearer and nearer, and increased in volume until I
fancied that Pharaoh had risen from his slumbers,
and was about to enter Bluefields in his flaming
chariot, to be present at the royal marriage. In a i
few moments about three hundred half naked In-;
dians made their appearance at the main entrance :
that leads to the palace. The Princess had arisen
from her couch of tigers' skins, and was 'standing at
the main gate of the palace, barefooted and devour
ing a raw plantain. The King soon mads his ap
pearance, and addressed his subjects in the follow-1
ing eloquent language ; 44 Me big king. My sister
go marry nigger. Me no like it. JNigger disgrace
Indian. Cussed shame I drown mvseL'!" His ma
jesty could say no more. Overcome with grief, he
entered the palace, threw himself upon a pile of
dried hides, and there relieved the anguish of bis
soul by giving vent to a flood of tears. 14 Won I"
said bis Majesty, ef me, big King, feel so much bad
cos my Bister marry nigger, now. common Mexican
teel wnen him dog die f" , .
i be royal palace was tastefully decorated with
highly scented hides. Every preparation being made
for the celebration, the Princess entered the palace
hall unattended, except by her pet goat. Her beau
tiful black hair, greased with possum tat, hung in
profusion over her shoulders, and contrasted finely
with her splendid dressl which was made of a coffee
sick. On the middle finger of her right hand she
wore a rich and costly tin- ring, made from a sardine
box. The guests were all assembled, but the happy
lover bad not yet arrived. The Princess became im
patient, and went to seek him. She found him play
ing at marbles. She accosted him thus: 44 Jim,
weddm all ready an you no cum !" Jim replied that
44 he had cum to the elusion nat to marry, cos if he
did Victory woodn't giv her no more penshun."-
I he .Princess was terrified ; but a lucky thought
struck her. 44 Jim," said she, 44 bimeby my blither
die, then you"ll be King." The words had their ef
fect. Jim threw his arms around the neck of the
Princess; their lips met: the Bound that followed
was like that heard pulling a bull out of the mire.
They proceeded to the palace. The King had thrown
off his India rubber crown, left the throne, (which
was a whiskey barrel,) and vamosed. "
The ceremony being over, a bull was led forth 'tan
be slaughtered. The poor creature was supported
on each side by two stout men, whilst a third gave
the fatal blow. The animal yielded up his life like
a good bull, and as all gentlemanly bulls ought to
do, whose carcasses are to be devoured on like occa
sions. The throne was now tapped ; the whiskey flowed
freely, and the guests became merry. The feast
came to an end; the last drop of whiskey was drain
ed from the throne ; a tremendous blast was blown
from the ram's horns of all the Mexicans, of the
King's household, and the party broke up. Jim is
luxuriating at Bluefields. waiting for the King to die.
He says 44 it his contention to visit the Nited States as
soon as de eqninomical storm be ober."

Texas Crops.
The Civilian gives the following account of the
crops :
" Our last accounts from the interior embrace no
news of particular interest. Cotton picking is go
ing on with great animation and success. The sea
son has proved remarkably favorable for picking and
the amounts reported to be gathered daily by differ
ent hands are almost incredible. Five, six, and in
one case nearly nine hundred pounds of seed cotton
are reported, on good authority, to have been taken
out in a day by single hands. The crop is short, it
is true, but nearly all of it will be saved in the very
best condition. The yield of the State promises to
exceed that of last year, from the incresed quantity
of land in cultivation, though the average product
per acre will probably be less. , One of our intelli
gent citizens has just returned from a tour through
the interior counties, extending some 1500 miles by
tbe route travelled ; and he informs us that he eve
rywhere saw the most substantial evidence of com
fort and prosperity among the people. The face of
the country is rapidly changing. As an instance we
are told that there is, at one place, a continuous
fence and corn fields for eight miles in extent
along the road, where four years ago the Indians held
almost sole possession."

MOLASSES. 50 hhds., vearranted sweet. For sale by
O.fe G.HOLMES.
Remarks There has been no rain for some timo.and the riv
ers & tributaries are extremely low for the season of the year.
No produce has been, or can be, received from above tide-wa-ter,until
we havo considerable raia. For (he last twe weeks it
has been remarkably warm and dry, aud bu si nets ef every
description has also been remarkably dull. "Pais merging It in
cool and dry, with a north wind. The Cape Fear is so low
that but one boat can pretend to get up to Fayetteville, and
she has to go perfectly light ".arrying only small lighters in,
tow with morcandize. A revival in mercantile business oau
not be expected until we have rain enough to raise the streams
so as to enable produce to reach our market. The season has
been generally dry more so, we think than for several yeara.
Our remarks below, on the state of the market, will be found
as correct as we are enabled to make thorn from a daily ob
servation of transactions.
Bacon. We hear of no wholesalo transactions, and quo
tations must be considered nominal. The stock is being re
duced, though it is not yet light for the season.
Beef Cattle Mutton Lambs akd Tork. The stock
of beef cattle in butcher's hands is considered fair, and quo
tations barely maintained except for a very fair artiole. A
prime stall-fatted article would bring a little more than our
figures indicate. We would advise our eotintry friends to
send in nono but a good article, and then they ean always
get the highest market price, at short notice. J The stock of
Mutton and Lambs is also sufficient for present purposes, and
prices remain about as quoted last week, rit : $ 1 to I 25
per head. Pork is remarkably scaree and prices high.
Butchers are paying from $7 to $8 per 100, on the hoof, for
hogs after being slaughtered.
Beeswax Is worth and brings 23 cents per lb readily.
Conx The stock on hand is large for the season, and 3000
bushels received since last Thursday, from the north coun
ties, was taken by a house intha trade, at 50 a 63 cents per
bushel, afloat. We also note sales in lots of 100 bushels and
upwards at 72 cents per bushel, delivered. Meal if rather
more plenty (though not abundant) than last week, and sales
from carts, as it arirves, in bulk, at 75 oents per bushel.
Coffee The stock of Rio in store is fully fair, and sale?
in the small way by the bag at quotations.
Eoss Continue to eome in remarkably slow, and bring
high prices, say 16 to 20 cents per dozen.
Featiieks See table for prices.
Flour The stock on sale is fully fair, if not large, and
sales in the small way at quotations.
Ground Peas Some few lots have been received. We
learn that there are no orders in the market, as yet, and those
that have arrived have been disposed of at 70 a 80 cents per
bushel. The market cannot be considered fairly opened yet.
We presume this is on account of the low prico as compare!
with the price paid last year at this time, when the market'
was fairly open at rates ranging from (1 10 to f 1 26 per
bushel. We have not heard of the probable bulk of t.e
crop, but wc believe from what wc have seen that the pea is
generally very fall.
Hay None received for sometime and in demand.
Lard Sales dull. Quotations about the same.
Li.us S50 casks received since last Thuri'dey, 300 casks
taken at 90, and 550 at 85 cents per cask. We belive there
is none in first hands at this time.
Molasses. None received thi3 week, sales in lots to suit
of former receipts at 13 to 20 cents per gallon, at 90 days.
About 80 hhds. remain on market.
Naval Storf.s. Turpentine The market for turpentine
has ruled firm at prices given this day week, except on Sat
urday and Monday, when 511 bbls were taken at $2 40 per
bbl. The remainder of the sales of the week have been at
$2 35, closing to-day at this price for SCO bbls. te shippers
and distillers. The weeks sales foot np 2,552 bbls. Rosin
Wecan hear of only about 1500 bbls having changed hands
hands this week. 1000 bbls. large size and in good order,
brought f l per bbl., and 500 small do. at 90 cents do. do.
Spirit! Turpentine During a part of the week, this ar
ticle has been rather drooping but no sales have been
made under 29 cents per gallon, at which price the market
closed last Thursday. The sales of the week reach only 26
bbls. including 150 to-day. Buyers seem more inclined to op.
erato this morning than for several days past. The stock is
said to be light, and holders are looking for better prices.
Tar Only 249 bbls. have reached market this week. It was
taken at $1 CO per bbl.
Oats. There is no oats in town, and they are much want
ed. . ... '. . ,. ... .
Peas Cow nono on the market. In the absence of re
ceipts we can give no quotations. They arc. in some demand.
Fork. Northern barrel pork continues to sell from store,
in quantity to suit, at quotations. ".
Potatoes. Sweet potatoes arrive freely, and sales from
50 to 60 cents per bushel as wanted from carts. ;
Rice. We hear of nothing doing in this article, except in
