An Trishman's opinion of Irish Federalists. --A gentleman, just arrived from Washington, reports the following conversation as having taken place within his hearing, in a grocery store in the District of Columbia, between an Irish Federal officer (who had his family with him) and a grocer: Officer--"I wish to make some purchases for my family use." Grocer--"You are an Irishman, I believe?" Officer.--"Yes, sir; and from Massachusetts" Grocer.--"Not three years ago the Legislature of Massachusetts passed a law prohibiting the military organization of Irish Roman Catholics; and yet you are here to fight for these same Yankees and to oppress Southerners who are struggling for their independence. You and Bishop Hughes, and Gen. Shields, and such Irish Catholic renegades, can buy nothing in this store" Officer left in a hurry.
