et the enmity but cannot abjure our principles. The maiden name of Horace Greeley's mother was Woodburn, Mary Woodburn, of Londonderry. The founder of the Woodburn family in this country was John Woodburn, who emigrated from Londonderry in Ireland, to Londonderry in New Hampshire, about the year 1725, seven years after the settlement of the original sixteen families. He came over with his brother David, who was drowned a few years after, leaving a family. Neither of the brothers actuallorne this testimony to her worth and influence, in a letter to a friend which some years ago escaped into print:I think I am indebted for my first impulse toward intellectual acquirement and exertion to my mother's grandmother, who came out from Ireland among the first settlers in Londonderry.

its principles are, and point out their inevitable tendency. Horace Greeley. Feb. 17th. Do so. Meanwhile let me remind you, that there is need of a new Social System, when the old one works so villanously and wastefully. There is Ireland, with three hundred thousand able-bodied men, willing to work, yet unemployed. Their labor is worth forty-five millions of dollars a year, which they need, and Ireland needs, but which the present Social System dooms to waste. There is work enough in Ireland to do, and men enough willing to do it; but the spell of a vicious Social System broods over the island, and keeps the workmen and the work apart. Four centuries ago, the English laborer could earn by his labor a good and sufficient subsistence for his family. Since that time Labor and Talent have made England rich beyond the dreams of avarice; and, at this day, the Laborer, as a rule, cannot, by unremitting toil, fully supply the necessities of his family.

Our gratitude, said the editor, is the deeper from our knowledge that many of the views expressed through our columns are unacceptable to a large proportion of our readers. We know especially that our advocacy of measures intended to meliorate the social condition of the toiling millions (not the purpose, but the means), our ardent sympathy with the people of Ireland in their protracted, arduous, peaceful struggle to recover some portion of the common rights of man, and our opposition to the legal extinction of human life, are severally or collectively regarded with extreme aversion by many of our steadfast patrons, whose liberality and confidence is gratefully appreciated. To the Whig party, of which it was not an organ, but an humble advocate, its obligations were many and profound. The Tribune, in fact, had become the leading Whig paper of the coun

It was in August of this year, that the famous Slievegammon letters seen fit at any time to justify nor allude to my participation in the efforts made here last summer to aid the people of Ireland in their anticipated struggle for Liberty and Independence. I shall not do so now. What I did then, in behalf of the Irering people on the face of the earth.

The thing called Crystal Pawhole crowd proclaimed the triumph of the Yankee treadmill. A rapid tour through the north of England, Scotland, and Ireland absorbed the last week of Mr. Greeley's stay in Europe.
