The Result.
Sufficient returns bare been received to war

•been elected’ Governor of Pennsylvania by a
majority approximating 30,000. This result
was entirely unexpected by the supporters of
Sen. Poster,-in whom they had a candidate
Worthy of better fate; and such a triumph was
hot dreamed of by the most sanguine and en
thusiastic friends of Col. Curtin. Politics in
.Pennsylvania is not what it was in days gone

.accuracy, but it now requires the count of rotes

more than to'remark that “ doubtful things are
mighty uncertain” in politics, and that those
who “.bet their money on the bob toil nag” are

Mnseu. Bniroai:—l promised la .my last
shoidd hearlfcnnme agffii this week,

towns from Qeenstown,at the bead of Cork har
bor, to Dnblin,. and further norths, twill roneh
for the correctness of all I write, and appeal to
all Irishmen to bear me out. Queenstown was
originally called Cove.and received its present
appellation from the Queen, in 1849. It is built
on the face of a bill sloping to the harbor shore.
It is much frequented by invalids on account of
the salubrity of its climate. I would not be
doing jnstiee were I to remain silent with re
gardto the harbor of Cork, which is one of the
ntost extensire in the lUnited Kingdom, being
capable of affording.shelter to the entire British'
navy. Into it Drake retreated when hotly pur
sued by the Spanish fleet, and Crosshaven creek
whs pointed out to me as .being the creek'into
which he sailed and where he was so effectually
hidden that the Spanish Were completely, lost
in conjecture as to his Whereabouts, and actual
ly spentdays in fruitless search for him in the
river, concluding that nothing short of magic
could have token him so suddenly out of their
grasp. The spot is to this day known as -‘Drake’s
Black Rock is the first promintory worthy of
note. From a distance its appearance is truly
picturesque, presenting the idea of a formida
ble old castle, standing out on a tongue of land
against the clear water of the Lee. Black Bock
is supposed to be the place from which William
Penn embarked for America. Here we enter a
.wide river called Lock Malion. Spike Island
is opposite Queenstown and is the most conspic
uous and largest It is a convict depot, with
accommodations for 2,000 convicts, I was
compelled to get an order from the Governor
before I could Visit this island. Rock Island
contains the powder magazine, which occupies
six chambers excavated in the solid rock. I
was told that it usually contains 12,000 barrels
of gunpowder, besides other kind of amunition.
The next island is Hawboline, which contains
the ordinance stores, an armory and a tank ca
pable of holding 6,000 tons of fresh water. To
this island I went without a grant.
Next we came to the city of Cork. Here we
were greeted by about three score and ten beg
gars, who sainted ns with “ och, butwould yon
see the brave Yankee boys!” “ain’t they dar
ling boys 1” “ welcome to Quid Ireland “may
God bless yees“ wouldn’t you be afther giv
ing a penny to a poor ould widow to boy some
bread.” To get rid of them I banded out a few.
English pennies, which 1 was tired carrying,
they being a huge coin as large as a P. B. R.
baggage check. I stopped at the Royal Victo
ria Hotel, in St. Patrick Street, kept by Mr.
McCormick, and a fine place it is to stop at.—
Better treatment you could not get anywhere.
You will find a very polite runner on the lit
tle steamer that runs out to the ship, ask him
for this hotel and be will almost carry you there;
and to him I .am indebted for much of the infor
mation 1 received concerning Cork and the sur
rounding country. This city is generally term
ed the capital of the South. It had long been
the heme of a Pagan temple on the site of which
St. Fionre Barr, the Anchorite, from Gongaim
Barra, founded a monastery in the beginning of
the seventh century. The Danes ore said to
have founded the city. The name “ Cork,” —
or “ Corraoh” or “ Coroagh”—means “swamp.”
I now start from Cork for Dublin, by cars,
and the’first place we stop at is called Blarney.
Here we find Blarney Custle, which was long
the residence of the young McCarthy’s, Barons
of Blarney. This Castle was built in the mid
dle of the fifteenth century, by Cormao McCart
ney, summed “ the Strong.” It consists now
of the massive dungon tower about 120 feet
high, and another portion, less substantial,
though almost strong enough to warrant the
conjecture that before the introduction of gun
powder it must have been impregnable. It is
almost ns marvelous as tbe x power attributed to
the “ Blarney Stone,” that a few lines contain
ing in themselves no merit save their absurdity,
should succeed in gaining a world-wide notoriety
for a place which otherwise would scarcely have
been celebrated beyond its own immediate vi
cinity. The “Blarney Stone” had long been a
bye-word among the Irish, but why, it was dif
ficult to conjecture, unless the glib tongues of
the natives of this locality were supposed not to
be the ordinary gifts of nature. A carious tra
dition attributes to it the power of endowing
whoever kisses it,, with the sweet, persuasive,
wheedling eloquence, so perceptible in the lan
guage of the Cork people, and which is general
ly tertned “ blarney.” This is the true meaning
of the word, and not, as some have supposed, a
faculty of deviating from the truth with an
unblushing countenance, whenever it may be
convenient. . It bears an inscription.
Mi fityi Fecit , A. D. 1446.
As. the kissing of this would be somewhat diffi
cult, yon, who seek for “ blarney” honors, will
be glad to know that at the summit, and within
easy access, is another “real stone,” bearing
date 1708. -; I feel indebted, very particularly,
to Ur. filake, for the following verses which
were written Convening this stone'
“The gravies of Blsriiey, they look so charming,
Down bythejrarlingof sweet silent streams,
Being hanked with posies that ipontaoeoai grow there,
' Planted In coder by the sweet rock close.
“’Ks Uiere the daisy, and die sweet carnation,
The blooming pink, and the roee no fair,

f* There is a atone there, that whoeverkisses,

TOs: he may clamber to a lady's chamber.
Or become a member of Parliament.
“A clever sponter he’ll sure turn opt, or
; 'An out and on ter to be let alone!: ,
Don’t hope to hinder him, or to bewilder him,
Sure he’s a pilgrim from the Blarney Stone.”
Pretty well for Blarney. -
: About a quarter of a mile from the castle is
Blarney Lake, and it is a smart piece of water.
A tradition remains that at a certain season
herds of white cows rise from the bosom of the
lake to gme among the rich pastnre which
clothes its banks. Another story is that the
Earl of Glanearty, who forfeited the castle at
the Revolution, oast all his plate into a certain

the secret of the place where they are deposited,
any one of whom dying communicates it to an
other of the family, and thus perpetuates the
secret, which is never to be revealed until a
McCarthy be again Lord of Blarney. Other
stories tire told, and if you lend a willing ear
and a tbree-pennybit you can get any number.
We now leave Blarney, and ; must be content
with a passing view of the country, since I can
not stop until I get to Dublin. Were Ito in
timate ; anything else of Ireland than that it
is exceedingly beautiful, 1 would not be giving
a correct description, as the tourist cannot help
but be delighted. Now, for the first time, I saw
the bogs—or turf lands. The turf is cut out
with a long-handled narrow-hladcd spade, and
very much resembles rotten manure, while it is
wet. It is wheeled out and stacked up in ricks,
and in pbout a month, good weather, it is dry
enough to burn. 1 took very good care to se
cure specimens of different curiosities for the
Library Association. I secured a piece of turf
and a number of very rare curiosities from the
Giants Causeway, the greatest curiosity on the
earth, of which I will give a minute description
in my next. I must not forget to say that at
a place called Mullinar, they manufacture gas
from the turf—from the residue they extract a
substance from which they make candles and
oil—from this second residue they extract an
alkali used by soap-boilers, and from this resi
due they obtain the best manure for land. Al
most all towns, large and small, use gas. The
turf gas makep a beautiful light. Gas sells here
at $l,OO and $1,25 per thousand feet—it never
exceeds one $1,25. This is quite a figure be
low the AUoona price. Can’t give the reason.
Befope 1 close this letter I must not forget to
say in behalf of the Irish that they are the most
kind and hospitable people 1 ever met. 1 never
was treated better than 1 have been by them,
and I shall ever entertain a warm feeling for the
Irishman. But to-morrow the ship sails for
America, and this letter must be mailed at 6 F.
M., so 1 close by promising that you shall hear
again from Yours Respectfully,
Fire and Thief Proof Chests.
For the benefit of our business men, we copy
the following from the Williamsport Press: —
The manufacture and sale of Fire and Thief
Proof Chests has become a business of immense
magnitude; and although confined chiefly to
one leading house in Philadelphia, Safes of
Philadelphia manufacture are now found in
every jjart of the country. The great amount
of security which is at so trifling a cost
makes it a matter of immediate interest to every
prudent business man. Ascertain degree of se
curity can be had by insurance, but the best in
surance policy is imperfect where the books and
valuable papers are at the mercy of the devour
ing element, and this fact is so generally un
derstood that no man who makes any preten
sions to being a careful business man can afford
to be without a Proof Safe, and hence the great
extent of this department of manufactures. It
may be objected that some “ careful prudent,
men” will not risk the purchase of a so-called
Safe which, in .the hour of trial, must prove it
self to he a cheat—an imposition and fraud upon
the purchaser—and the objection comes with
considerable force since irresponsible parties
ore engaged in the manufacture of them. Every
reputable business attracts imposters, and the
manufacture of Safes is not an exception. Par
ties even from other cities have been attracted
to Philadelphia by the well earned reputation of
Safes manufactured there, and to a certain ex
tent have brought the business into discredit.—
But the man who purchases from n house long
and well established, whose safes have stood the
test pf time and whoso integrity commands the
confidence of the business community can run no
risk. And it may not be out of place here to
say that Messrs. Evahs & Watson are without
a rival :in this department of trade. Their sale
rooms at No. 304, Chestnut St., always contain
a large stock suited in styles and prices to every
demand.' Their Safes have, wherever tested,
added do their well earned reputation, and what
ever iqiiy be said of other manufactures, certain
it is that Evans & Watson’s safes are what they
purport to be and he who seeks security will not
find it for a less price elsewhere.

tlC®—lt i* a common observation that there are more suf
ferers from dobfjity, among. Americans than can bo found
amoiig any other civilized nation. The reasons are obvi

the body in the absorbing pursuits of business. In all such
cases ordinary medicines call do little good. What is re
quired is Just such a tonic and invigorotor as Dr. J.Uostet
