At Jeffersonville, Colonel Harnden left oneall command, he continued the march till the next evening, reaching Dublin at about seven o'clock. During the night and day he had sent out scil after he had bivouacked for the night. The white inhabitants of Dublin expressed entire ignorance and indifference in regard to the movemeelling him that Davis, with his wife and family, had passed through Dublin that day, going south, on the river road.

are fighting for independence, but it by no means follows, that they are entitled to it. We shall show, before we conclude, that they are not; but here we would merely suggest, that if Ireland should at present break into open revolt, why then Ireland would be fighting for independence. Would the charming features of Lord Brougham beam benevolently upon such an enterprise? Would he be found in his place in Parliament making soft speeches in behalf of a Provisional Government established in Dublin, and voting against all bills for putting down an Irish insurrection? And yet Ireland is no more an integral part of the British Empire than South Carolina is an integral part of the American Union. Nay, if we. look at the matter, and institute a somewhat closer comparison, we find that the connection of Ireland with the English throne, originating in one of those conquests which Lord Brougham so much deprecates, and since sustained by cruelties which no honest writer can extenuate, does a
his brother Teig. Adrian IV. urged this as a title to the kingdom in his bull, transferring it to Henry II. The harp was preserved in the Vatican, and given by Leo X. to Henry VIII. with the title Defender of the faith. It is needless to say how much the Pope was disappointed in his pupil. The gold crown of Brian was retained. Arabian Kanun. The harp was given by Henry VIII. to the Earl of Clanricarde, and, after passing through several hands, was lodged in the College Museum, Dublin, 1782. The modern Arabian harp, or Kanun, is laid flat in the lap while being played. The strings are arranged in groups of three, and the soundingboard is pierced. The strings are stretched as in our pianos, and rest on a bar near the tuning-pins, and on a bridge-piece above the sounding-board. This harp is played by the fingers, but thimbles with points are used on the two forefingers, forming an approximation to the plectra where with some of the Egyptian harps and psalteries were

ery Southern State. Dense woods were fired, broad rivers turned, fair villages destroyed. Ruin reigned everywhere. Need one wonder that scars are left? The rent and blackened walls of Atlanta have not disappeared. It is in vain to dream that the moral sores are healed. Wounds inflicted in a civil strife last long. Israel was divided for ever by her war of tribes. For ages the contest of patricians and plebeians stopped the growth of Rome. Internal feuds gave Seville to the Moor and Dublin to the Saxon. Street conflicts opened Constantinople to the Turk. Religious conflicts weakened Germany and France. The raid on Freiburg by the Swiss volunteers is still resented by the Catholic Cantons. But the direst form of civil war is that which has a social or a servile cause. Long years elapsed ere Rome recovered from her tug with Spartacus. English society was shaken by Cade. Munzer's rising is still recalled with horror by the people of Wurtzburg and Rothenburg. The French wa

n now living in Walnut Street remember a time when Philadelphia was not so large as Croydon. She is now bigger than Berlin — nearly as big as New York. Only fifty years ago she was about the size of Edinburgh. Ten years later she was as big as Dublin. In another ten years she had outgrown Manchester. Fifteen years ago she was ahead of Liverpool. At the present moment Philadelphia is more than equal to Manchester, Liverpool, and Sheffield combined. If the population of Dublin and EdinburghDublin and Edinburgh, York, Lancaster, and Chester were counted in one list they would hardly make up half the number of people who house in Philadelphia at this present day. If size is but another name for power the City of Brotherly Love is metropolitan. Leaving out Chinese cities, Philadelphia claims to be the fourth city in the world, admitting no superiors save London, Paris, and New York. She over-caps all other rivals. She is bigger than Moscow and St. Petersburg, the two capitals of Russia, put togethe

e of Rome was the first to be heard against the slave-trade; and that the bull of Gregory XVI., forbidding every true Catholic to touch the accursed thing, is yet hardly a year old. Ireland is the land of agitation and agitators. We may well learn a lesson from her in the battle for human rights. Her philosophy is no recluse; she doffs the cowl, and quits the cloister, to grasp in friendly effort the hands of the people. No pulses beat truer to liberty and humanity than those which in Dublin quicken at every good word from. abolition on this side the ocean; there can be no warmer words of welcome than those which greet the American Abolitionists on their thresholds. Let not any persuade us, Mr. Chairman, that the question of slavery is no business of ours, but belongs entirely to the South. Northern opinion, the weight of Northern power, is the real slave-holder of America. Their presence in the Union is the Carolinians' charter of safety,--the dread of the Northern bayone

Reagan, General Breckinridge, secretary of war, and a considerable number of other Confederate officials and officers, also arrived at Washington. On the 5th this party, the last representatives of the Confederate States government, separated, General Reagan alone accompanying the President in a westward direction. At Irwin's cross-roads and at Dublin they were threatened by strolling bands, but escaped danger. At daylight on the morning of May 10th, a detachment of Michigan cavalry, under Lieutenant-Colonel Pritchard, striving to cut off the party in advance, collided with a body of Wisconsin cavalry under Lieutenant-Colonel Harnden, which was in pursuit, and before there could be a mutual recognition, several Federal soldiers were killed by their comrades. At the same time President Davis was discovered, and he and his entire party w

lorid, with remarkable vivacity of speech and of expression. His popularity was certainly very great. While he was speaking, a gentleman entered and approached him. How d'ye do, Tom Steele? said O'Connell, shaking hands with the new-comer. The audience applauded loudly, Steele being an intimate friend and ally of O'Connell, and, like him, an earnest partisan of Repeal. Mr. George Ticknor, of Boston, had given us a letter to Miss Edgeworth, who resided at some distance from the city of Dublin. From her we soon received an invitation to luncheon, of which we gladly availed ourselves. Our hostess met us with a warm welcome. She had had some correspondence with Dr. Howe, and seemed much pleased to make his acquaintance. I remember her as a little old lady, with an old-fashioned cap and curls. She was very vivacious, and had much to say to Dr. Howe about Laura Bridgman. He in turn asked what she thought of the Repeal movement. She said in reply, I don't understand what O'Conne
