Nay, when I once mentioned to that fine old Irish gentleman, the late Richard D. Webb, at his house in Dublin, that I had felt a thrill of pleasure on observing the street sign, denoting Fishamble Lane, at Cork, and recalling the ballad about Misthress Judy McCarty, of Fishamble Lane, he pleased me by saying that he had felt just so in New York, when he saw the name of Madison Square, and thought of Miss Flora McFlimsey. So our modest continent had already its storied heroines and its hallowed ground! There are, undoubtedly, points in which Europe, and especially England, has still the advantage of America; such, for instance, as weekly journalism. In regard to printed books there is also still

"To understand the extreme distress and condition of the poor, down-stricken mechanic or householding class, it is necessary to go into the back lanes and alleys of the city, and into the dark and gloomy garrets, where scenes sufficient to awaken the coldest feelings of humanity may present themselves to the view. The question now is, can anything be done to relieve this pressing claim of our fellow-creature.? The Dublin Freeman's Journal reporting a visit to the homes of the working classes in the city, says: The prevailing sickness is the low fever that is always to be found in close attendance on extreme poverty. The sickness is terribly aggravated by the want of beds and covering; and, if we had any doubt as to the incapacity of the charitable societies to grapple with the present desolation, our experience of yesterday would have removed it.

The Cork (Ireland) Reporter, of the 8th inst, remarks: The great fair of Ballinasloe, which has just concluded, adds one more illustration to those already given of the severe losses which Ireland has sustained by the unpropitious weather during the last three years.
