NOKTHERN TRIBUNE. THURSDAY. MAY 7. 1883. HACKEEEL BY THE MILLION. A irut Haul ott the Virginia CapttHSkatl Cleai--Toment l'eople Happy. New York Triltune. ' There is jfloom over Fulton Markot, for all the profit has been knocked out of the flsh-salling business since the ar rival on Sunday of a fleet of mackerel sehoonera Iader. to the water edge with an eaormoua catch of macitertl eaufht off the Virginia capes. More than 12, 000,000 mackerel were netted within twenty-four hours, and for two days the schooners have been unloading them at the foot of Beckman-et. An army of ped lers'and hucksters have boueht all ther can smI at 50 cents aud $1 a wagon load. Couatless small boye have earried off fresh mackerel enough free to supply a large tenement-house population, and Htiil the fishermen have difficulty in dis posing of their catch. A niillon or two were barreled und nhipped to Boston, Philadelphia and noighboriag eities and towns. One Kuropeau order at $1 75 a barrel was received. A shining heap of ice and maekerel on the pier north of Fulton Ferry was being carefully pulled over yesterday by old women and small boys who took only the choicest fish. Ten cmta would buy a hamper full. Other flih had to come down to com pete with the mackerel gult, but the greatest straiu of all was on the figures for shad. Never before were they so low. North River shad, of which over 00,000 were caught yesterday, brought 25 and 30 ceuts for the roes, while the backs sold for 15 cents. As for shad from other waters, the fish dealers of Fulton Mar ket refuse to handle them at all, declar ing that the cost of ice is more than the fish will bring. . Even the mackerel catchers wished they had caught less and 1,1818: "I rscoive many letters from persons in England on emigrating to the United States. The writers ask In timation aud advice.

During his tenure of the mission. 1 829-31, he bad the good fortune to be served by Wash ington Irving as secretary of legation. Edward Everett became minister in 1811 and George Bancroft in 1816-49. OTHER PENNSYLVANIA DIPLOMATS. The historian was followed by Abbott Lawrence, 1849-52, who began life as elerk in his brother's "dry goods store," traveled widely tor the firm, helped to make a big thing of it, and is justly re garded as one of the founders of the town of Lawrence, in his native state of Massachusetts. To Joseph R. Ingersoll, lawyer, who rilled the mission In 1852-53 succeeded James Buchanan, who only quitted it to become a successful caadi dote for the ehief magistracy. From the spring of 1850 to that of 1801 America was represented by George Mifllin Dal las, who had wen high reputation as a criminal lawyer and had also been min ister at St. Petersburg and Vice Presi dent ef the Union. His "Letters from London" are more amusing then possi bly he expected them to be. Thus on the 4th day of April 1850 he deems it necessary to give Secretary Marey'an account of the Queen's drawing room at uueitingnam 1'aiace. "While In the picture gallery" he informs his official superior, "I made the acquaintance of Lord Lansdowne and many others who I am happy o tell you were no way repelled from the American min ister by his plain suit of ' black, but, on the contrary, made his time, while wait lng ner Majesty's readiness, pass very pleasantly.

Ain.rlram PlenlpottarIea Who Ilav Served Tlislr Country at the lirltWh Court. , From St James Gazette. On the 6th of August, 1783, Fox, then Secretary of State for Foreign affairs, wrote to George III to say that he had been asked by 11 r. Laurens whether .it would be agreeable to the Sovereign of Great Britain to receive a minister from the United States. Fox added that, to , spare the King any needless reference to a painful topic, he should have taken on himself to answer the question in the affirmative, "If it had net been rather pointedly put to me to take your Maj esty a royai pleasure, in ms answer dated with the usual precision, "Wind sor, August 7, 1783, 7 P. M.," the King replied that he "certainly could never express its being agreeable to him" to receive a minister from America; "and indeed," remarks his Majesty, "I should think it wisest for both parties to have only agents who can settle any matters , of commerce." From the United States however, the King had consented to re ceive a minister as far haek as the year 1785, wheu John Adams was sent over, and went tnrougn the trying ordeal of presenting credentials to his former prince. ' His embarassmeRt, he owns, would have been great, but for the considerate attentions of the Swedish and Dutch am bassadors, who engaged him in Uht conversation while he was waiting for a summons into the closet. At length Lord Carmarthen, the foreign secretary eame for him; and "I went" he tells us. "with his lordship through the levee room into the King's eloset. The door was shut, and I was left with his Maj esty and the Secretary of State alone. I made the three reverences; one at the door, another abont half way and the . third before the presence, aceerding to the usage established at this and all the Northern Courts of Europe." OCR FIBST MINISTER'S INTERVIEW. Adams then spoke, and with dignity; as did the Kin?,, whom the Minister pro nounced to be the most accomplished courtier ln his dominions." His Majesty good humoredly rallied the envoy on his anti-Gallican sentiments, which were well known. Adams "avowed that he had no attachment but to his own coun try;" when the King, "as quick as light-! uing," replied that "an honest man would never have another." And with, a bow he signified that the audience was at an end. Whereat Adams, step ping backwards, and execnting three more reverences departed. He took fi nal leave of the King oe the 20th of Feb ruary, 1788, becoming Vice-President of . tlto United States in the following year, an rrrsiaent immediately in succes sion to Washing tan. In IS 17, when Adams returned to take ra seat in Monroe's Cabinet, Rlehard "Jtnsh, ei-attorney general, was accredit ed to the English Court, of which he has recorded bis impressions at great length. He seems to have been a man of emi nently correct feeling, as witness the following entry in his journal of March FORBIDDEN TO MARRY. The woes of a Couple Who Were Kept Ai- sunder by the Church. William Flynn, an ex-member of the Legislature, living at Pittsburg, sought to marry Miss Jennie Hook; a pretty blonde of 18. He was a Pretestant and she a Catholic, and the parents of Miss iiooic oojected to a union. Finally the wooer was won from his strong convic tions and at the end ef five years' course of lectures to the end he consented to be baptized in the Roman Catholic faith. Of course this capitulation, after so long a siege, was a signal of great joy to the young lady and she went at once to tie cplscepal residence, gave word that she had secured a proselyte and a time was fixed when she might bring the yeung man and the ceremony of baptism be solemnized. Under the forms of the Catholic religion in cases of this kind, where the convert has no parents pro fessing the same belief it is necessary that someone shall act in that capacity, oecome ineir goarainer or godmother and pledge themselves to act in that ca pacity, and keep a guardianship over them through life. This pledge is sol emu and binding. At the time set for the baptism the two lovers appeared without attendants and the solemn cer emony was gone through with. When the priest asked Miss Hook if she was to aet as godmother the happy young wo man readily absented, eager that no technicality should delay the consuma tion of her wish. When the ceremony was through the vounr cirl told tha priest that they would shortly come be fore him to have solemnized a marriage eeremony. Shortly after, when they wanted to get married, the priest refused to per form the ceremony on the ground that the young woman having become god- motner conid not become the wife of her convert. The goo 1 father comforted them as best he could and offered, as the only consolation at hand that per haps a petition to Home might absolve her from her vows. This advice was aeted upon as auicklv as Dosslble. Thev waited for two years but without result, and at last Miss Hook feeling the Injus tice of keeping her fiance waiting so long, insisted on giying him his release. Since then Flynn has married another lady. The wife lived but a few months after the wedding, and now the petition to Rome is being agitated again, for the young godmother that would have been a wife is still unmarried and otherwise unpieagea. - , cause them.
