Correspondence of the Altoona Tribune.
Messes, Editors : — This morning, I again sit
me down to address another letter for your val
uable paper. I dated this letter at Dublin but
I may finish writing it in Belfast, for the time
from noon until the train leaves is too short, and
1 dare not finish my letter, unless I do justice
to all the “wy&s,” and they are many. I se
cured a guide (-an old man to whom I gave half
a crown for his services) 8 hours yesterday and
2 hours this morning. But 1 will not give you
as minute ft description of Dublin as I received,
but, only the history of the principal objects of
this the principal city of Ireland. Dublin is
situated on the banks of the River Liffey, which,
running from West to East, divides the City into
two nearly equal parts. After leaving the town
the river expands into a noble bay, which is
guarded on the one side by Killiney hill, near
Kingstown, and on the other by the hill of Houth..
The river Is navigable as far as Carlisle Bridge,
in the .centre of the City, but the heavier vessels
seldom pass above the Custom Bouse. Well for
the sights—and the first is the Bunk of Ireland.
This building is situated In College Green and
was formerly used as the Parliament House, and
occupied the s ite of q building which was begun
early in the Seventeenth Century by Sir G. Ca
rey. Originally intended for an hospital, it be
cn.itoe successively the seat of justice and a man
sion, The present building was commenced in
1721) and completed in 1787, costing altogether
$46,000. The huildiug is somewhat semicircu
lar in shape, with a beautiful Colonade of lonic
columns facing College Green, and portico in
the centre, in the tympanum of which is placed
the Royal Arms, appropriately surmounted by
emblematical figures of Hibernia, Commerce
and Fidelity, The entrance to the former House
of Lords was by ft portico oq the eastern side,
th,C Columns presenting the anomally of the
Corinthian order. - The figures here ore Forti
t’udß; Liberty and Justice. The western on
tranco, like the Colonade, is in the lonic £tyle
of ’nrchitecture. The old Hoa«o of Commons is
now used os the Tellers office. The House of
liosiucss notices five cents per lino for every insertion.
C/biLuary notices exceeding ten lines, fifty cents a square.

Backward, turn backward, oh. Time, m your flight;
Make me a child again , just for to-night I
Mother, come back from the echoless shore,
Take me again to your heart as of yoro—
Kiss from my forehead the furrows of care,-
Smooth the few silver threads out of my hair—
Over tuy.slumber your loving watch keep—
Rock me to sleep, mother—rock me to sleep !
Backward, backward, oil, tide of the years !
1 am so weary of toil and tears—
Toil without recompense—toaiA all in vain—
Take them and give me my childhood again 1
I have grown weary of dust and decay,
Weary of flinging my soul wealth away—
Weary of sowing for others to reap;—
Rock me to sleep, mother—rock me to sloop
Tired of the hollow, the has--, the untrue.
Mother, oh. mother, my heart calls for,you 1
Many a summer the grass has grown green,
Blossomed and faded, our faces between—
Yet with strong yearnings and passionate pain,
Long I to-uigbt for your presence again :
Come from the silence so long and so deep—
Rock me to sleep, mother—rock me to (deep 1
Over my heart, in the days that arc flown,
N o love like mother-lovo ever has shone—
No other worship abides and endures
Faithful, unselfish' and patient like yours ;
None like mother can charm away pain
Front the sick soul and the world weary brain ;
Slumber’s soft calms o’er my heavy lids creep,
Rock me to sleep, mother—rock mo to Sleep)
Como, let your brown hair, just lighted with gold,
Fall on your shoulders again as of old ;
Let it drop over my forehead to-night.
Shading my faint eyes away from the light—
For with its sunny edged shadows onco more
Haply will throng the sweat visions of yore.
Lovingly, softly its bright billows sweep—
Rock me to sleep, mother —rock roe to sleep!
Mother, dear mother I the years have been long
Since I have slept to yonr lullaby song; v
Sing, then, and unto my soul it shall seem
Womanhood’s years have been only a dream.
Clasped - to yonr heart in a loving embrace,
With your light lashes just sweeping my face,
Never, hereafter, to wake or to weep—
Rock mo to sleep, mother—rock mo to sleep!

Lords remains unaltered, save the site of the
throne is now occupied by a statute of King
George the 111. ‘ The chairs are in their places,
the long table in the centre and the old tapestry
still hanging on the' walls. i This has on the
left a representation of,'King William crossing
the Boyne with poor Schowberg expiring almost
under bis horses feet; and on the right the
siege of Derry. Both pieces .of needle-work are
in excellent preservation. Directly opposite the
Bank of Ireland is Trinity College. This is a
very fine building; I weht through it, but shall
only speak of the museum belonging to it. Tho
collection is email but very creditable to allcon
cornod. Tho skeletons of' the ancient Elk of
Ireland, which have been dug up oat of the bogs
of various parts of the country, are truly a cu
riosity ; the series comprises: two males and a
female, together with a group of six heads of
Antlers of various ages, from two years old to
the adult size. This collection is unique. -An
other collection of value to the College student
is a series of human skulls, | geographically ar
ranged, intended to convey at a glance tho dif
ference of cranial development incidental to dif
ferent countries. The collection of Irish birds
is very fine, the specimens in i good con
dition, and tho series nearly-complete. Among
them may be observed with interest the Golden"
Eagle, Errie or White Tailed Eagle, the Spotted
Eaglo, and a Vulture, all shot in the South of*
Ireland. In the Library room I was handed a
book, called “ A Latin copy of the Gospel,”
known as tho Book of Kells,; and attributed to
Saint Columbia, which was written 1300 years
I waa next taken into the Castle of Dublin,
which is by no means an imposing structure.—
Wo next went into the Viceregal Chapel which
is beautiful in the extreme. The Viceregal
apartments are easily found. You eater under
a Doric Colonadn, and by the grand staircase
into the presence chamber, an ornamented hall
containing the throne of the representative mon
archy, (in wltieh I sat) which, as well as the
hangings, is richly embroidered with gold.—
We went through St. Patrick’s Hall—the Coun
cil Chamber and the private Drawing Room,
which contains the most magnificent furniture,
costly mirrors and marble tables. I was next
shown the Christ’s Church Cathedral, or Church
of the Holy Trinity, which was built in 1038—
and about which I took copious notes, bat will
give them at another time ; also the Cathedral
of St. Patrick, the Post Office, Custom House,
the Four Courts and the Phoenix Park. But
now we will goto see Nelson’s Monument, which
is in Sackville St. It is a tall fluted column
121 feet high (exclusive of the statute,) and
stands close to the Post Office, It is of granite,
consisting of a pedestal 80 feet high bearing
-the names and dates of four of the heroes’ victo
ries. The pillar rises above 70 feet, bearing on
a Doric capital, a second pedestal on which tho
statute rests—it cost $34,280. The statute
which stands 13 feet in height, is a beautiful
specimen of art, and is from the Studied h na
tive Sculptor, Thomas Kirk. On a fine clear
day such as we have now, if. you ascend to the
safely railed summit as I did, you have a most
extensive and beautiful as well os 'delightful
prospect; embracing a panoramma view of tbe
city and surrounding country—from the Mowme
Mountains in the County Donrne on the North,
to the Wicklow Mountains on tbe South, the
plains of Meath and Kildarr in the West, parted
by tho Dublin Hills and Dublin Bay, and a wide
expanse of sea to the Eastward. But we must
not pass unnoticed the Zoological Gardens in
tho Phoenix Park—some pf the animals are liv
ing and some are dead, yet of the latter there
are very few ; I saw wolves),such as formerly
infested Ireland, bears, leopards, pumas, ja
guars, hyenas, bisons, llamas, and various spe
cies of doer, kept here, together with an assem
blage of those amusing little gentry, the mon
key. I observeS a large cage containing a whole
colony of white tailed eagles, and a number of
other birds, but I saw no foarfy or makes, “nary
time.” But I have but 15 minutes time to get
to Belfast railway station, •which is one mile
'distant, so I must bo off—well I jump op .to a
a jaunting car—and I got there just in time, I
get my ticket, jump into/ the train, the whistle
is blown, and we arc off—aud the first place of
jntercst wo came to is Malahide Castle, the fine
haronical mansion of Lord Talbot de Malahide.
Tho Castle is a large square/building flanked by
lofty circular towers. It was erected in the
reign of Henry 11. The Oak;Chamber exhibits
the most elaborate carving in oak and lighted
with a pointed window, of stained glass ; close
by is a Malahide AbbeyAan interesting ruin of a
church in tho Gothic style, liut wc must be (iff
we pass Swords and Lurk and stop at Drogheda.
This town is situated omtliej fine-! river /Boyne.
The town was formerly wallcd in,'&nd consider
able portions of its walls, with two of its gates, ■
still remaining as ruins. St. |jpwrenoe's Gate, pn
the northern side of the river) is a.perfect spe
cimen, and the Wept Gate, pn the southern or
meath side, forms p jn ore picturesque tain, as
sociated with Drogheda, arc the histories of the
memorable siege by Cromwell) and. the “ battle
of .the Boyne.” We leave Drpg heda and Pars
Tara—the history pf wbiph ip mpst interesting,
yet too lengthy for the pyoSent .occasion,! )7e
next come to Dundalk which was the lost town
in Ireland, when a monarch jifas crowned, and
resided in royal Tjtpre are
in the town; that were built |p 10()V.G.N e w?X
the next Station.though the town is- sitnated a
short distance fromtheßailrtad,inthe vale of
;the-rireirNewry,*sliKo; A
gentleman who sat beside me in the ear, and
was faihUiar of Nowry, staled
that Dean Swift described It. in these words
‘‘High Church, low steeple, dirty streets, and
jiroud people.” The next stopping place is Ar
magh; In 444 St Patrick fixed his see at Ar
magh, and. here on the sight of the present Ca
thedral, sprang of the first Christian
Churches in Ireland. Here he also foonded the
first College in the Kingdom, and while the rest
of Europe was in darkness. Armagh was a
shining light, which so increased in brilliancy,
that ip the timooftho Tenerable Bedey eleven
centuries ago, it attracted thither the : nobility
and gentry of Brittain for their education, The
Danes destroyed the city and its Cathedral in
the ninth oentnry, and from this period v, to tho
twelfth century it was destroyed seventeen
times, so that not many of theanoient-bolldings
are left; but we now; leave Armagh, 'and oof
next stopping place is Belfast I shohld bare
stated that at Postadom we left tho main, lino
ahd came through the country, temples and a
half distant, to. get to Armagh. It cost nothing
and we had time. Now we go back to and take
cars for Belfast Weamve“at&p, m„ and will
remain two days, so I uavjtov at the Plough
Hotel in Belfast, and will |tart on Wodnsday
for Colerain and other points of Irelaad. •
1 am yours truly,
This stupendous monument of human. art
industry exceeds every thing that wetead of in
ancient or modern history. The pyramids of
Egypt aro little when compared with ft
which is conducted over highmountains,some ■
of which rise to the height of five t vo
hundred and twenty-five feet, ■ across thb deep- I
est vales, over wide rivers by means of arches,
and in many parts is doubled qr' trebled,to-com
mand important passes; at the distance, ofal
most-every hundred' yards iq a tower ofmassy
bastion. The extent is oompntod at fiftan hun
dred miles, and is each enormous thickness
six horsemen may ride abreast upon it
Sir George Staunton, who accompanied Lord :
Macartney in bis embasy to China,' considers
this great barrier to have been erected at least
two thousand years. Du Raids also; says ° this
prodigious work was’ constructed tfq hundred
and fifteen years before the birth of Christ, by
the orders of the first emperor of the family of
Tain, to protect three large provinces from the
irruptions of the Tartars.’* One-third pact of
the able-bodied men of Chinn were employed in
constructing this wall, and the workmen were
ordered, under pain of death, to place the mate
rials of which it is composed so closely that the
least entrance might not he left for any instrn-t
ment of pointed iron; The labor in its con
struction must have been immense, ae the mate
rials mast have been earned over a desert coun
try to eminences inaccessible to horses or* car
riages. This ?* wonder of the wortd'Vwas com
pleted in the short space of five years, is
reported that the laborers stood 90 close for
many miles that they oonld hand the wiatojriaN
from one to aabrher. -
