Tbs other day as I walked out
L'pon a wild goose chase,

About a decent place,
I knew well that the plaoe would suit,
Hut I ran't toll you why,
The lady tald, did you not read, '
'No Iriib need apply I"
C aoBtrs. If 'tie my country you dislike,
I really can't tell why,
JJut you lose your ieoios
When you soy, no Iriab need apply !
Tou talk about your soldiers
Hut tall me if you can, .
If the bravest of Uiem all
Are not true frishnen ?
When this Uobellion first broke out,
"We want men," waa the ory,
But thy never made an exception by
"No lriah need apply !"
If 'tie my eouutry you diilike, its.
Of Oenerali and of Statesmen, too,
Old Ireland can bcaat;
The l'nets, too, well known to you,
Are Universal Hoata :
There's Campbell, Moore and Conner,
And Ooldsmith, by the by I
Where will you Gnd their equals f
"No Irish need apply !"
If 'tis my country you dislike, Ac.
Just take a trip to Ireland,
They'll treat you like a man :
The whiskey they'll pour into you
As long as you can stalid.
With heart and hand they'll welcome you,
Then tell me the reason why
Our ears offend with that dirty cry,
"No Irish need apply I"
If 'tis my country you dislike, 4c.
And when you leave this world of care,
They'll put you in the earth,
For they serve us all alike when dead,
No matter wbat'i our birth ;
They'll make no such exceptions then
Hot ween either yon or I;
But I hope Old Nick has on his door
"No Irish need apply 1"
If 'tis my country you dislike, &c.

THE ARREST OF CIVILIANS.
Wlmt, would the pooplo of England
have thought, aid, or dona under the fol
lowing circumstance, supposing it to have
been possible they could have occurred ?
John bright, an able, clear-headod, logical
speaker, and an earnestadvooate of peace,
addressed the people of Kochdale, in the
year 1854, on the subject of tlm war in i K a
Crimea. So high ii his repulution for el
Ouiience. at well as for courage and patri
otism, that not only his immediate neigh
bors and friends, but multitndA nf nonr.in
from all the contiguous district?, gathered
to listen to bis voice and cheer the
manly expression of Lis sentiments. lie
denounces the war as wrong in principle,
tjnui.cuuB m policy, unjust ana iniquitous
in itself, and more dangerous in its con
tinuance to the liberty and orosneritv nf
the British people thau to the stability of
me Jtussian empire. lie declares that
Lord Aberdeon is little hotter than an
old woman ; that Lord Punmure thinks
too much of Dowb " and too little of his
duty to the country to be a safe or an ef-
ticient Minister in a lime of national dan
ger; that speculation and peculation, job
bery and robbery, pervade every depart
ment of the public service ; and that war,
always deplorable and wicked, is particu
larly horrible and unchristiun when waged
in defence of such a rotten and effote in
stitution as the Turkish empire, which
maintains slavery, and is therefore no Jit
member of the comity of nations, lie is
not aware, while speaking, that two ofli
cers of the Grenadier Guards, disguised in
citizen's attire, have been sont to the mee
ting by the War office to take notes of his
speech, and, having ended his oration,
amid the enthusiastic applause of his au
dience, goes home to supper. A few
night afterwards, thinking no evil, and
believing himself to be a oitizen of a free
country, he retires quietly to bed as usual.

Ifthere is any one thing more than
another onlcnlated to excite meluncholy
in tho present alarming condition of our
country, it is tho base, truckling subser
viency of tli judiciary, with hero and
there honorable exceptions, to the despot
ism that rulos us. . The sagacity which can
not be misled by sophistry ; the integrity
which nothing can shake or bribe j the
courage that ran wither despotic authority
at a glance, that are all looked lor in an
American Judiciary, seems gone; anil in
their steud have com 9, cringing cowutdioe,
presumptuous ignorunoe, ana time-serving
corruption. As we road the judicial de
cisions sinoe the issuing of Mr. Linoolu's
l'roclamation, one is reminded of those
corrupt Judges who gave judgment for the
crown in the mutter of ship money, iu the
reign of the first Charles. They vied with
each olh,er, who could be the most servile.
Said Justice C'rawlev. of the Common
l'leas: " The law knows no king-yoking
policy. The law itself is an old and trusty
follower of the kind's; it is his instru
ments by which he governs the people,
1 never heard that lex was rex; but it is
common and most true that rex is lex."
Vernon, another discraco to the ermine
that covered his shoulders, gave his opin
ion in these degrading words : " The King
may, pro bono publico, charge his subjects
for the safety and defense of the kinnddta.
notwithstanding auv act of Parliament:.
and tho King may dispense with laws in
case of necessity." Nothing is more cer
tain than this fnct, that a nation, where
any spirit is left, soon becomes revolution
ary, where the Judicial power is subser
vient to the Government, to carrv out its
decrees. When the streams of iustice arn
troubled at the fountain head, the waters 1
that flow from them over the land soon I
become a curso instead of a blessing. Tho
peoplo becomo armed, and if there be anv !
virtue left, it will not be ioniz before thev
assort their inalienable rights, and, amid
the throes of revolution, liberty will le
born again, or else perish in the travail,
The servility of a venal judiciary upon
this question of ship money was eoon fol
lowed by the infamous outrages of the
Star Chambor, which soon stirred up the
(lames of a civil war, in which the King
and his corrupt judges quickly perished.
Hitherto, since the formation of our Gov
ernment the political horizdn hss been
comparatively calm. There have been
some threatening clouds now and then,
tpi no destroying tempests.
In the main.

bench and an upright bar quietly preser
ved the arder of the system. But a re
verse has come. Two years of civil war
have upturned the old foundations. Pow
er, tending to augmentation, as in all such
convulsions, has gone on step by step in
its usurpation, until it has assumed the
form of a despotism. Instead of resisting
its encroachments, wo find the judiciary
almost everywhere encouraging and coun
tenancing them. The decision of Judge
Leavitt, and the recent ones of Judge
Belts and Cadwnlader, make manifest
how basely these men are bowing to the
storm. They are but imitators of the ser
vile judges oi the first Charles; in fact
they are worso, because the case before
the twelve judges involved simply a ques
tion in reference to the regularities of the
King the questious now to be decided

the subject, but the lile of the nation. If,

fearful responsibility, both here and here
after, of doing what Pilate did: "ming
lirg blood with their sacrifices." They
have been foremost among those who
" have made hasto lo shed blood." They

of their congregations lo hatred, revenge

and good will. 1 f they minded their true
mission they wouid discover that they had
nothing to do with the sword of steel that
pierces the body, but only with "the
sword of the spirit a hich is the word of
God." If they must elevate a shield, let
it only be " the shield of faith, wherewith
they shnll be able lo quench all the fiery
darts of the wicked." These men seem

irreligion so rife in the land as now, and
the cause of it is to be found in the mad

his Canterbury Tains, of the IVrson ;
"His preaching much, but more his practice
A living sermon of the truths ie taught,
For this, by rules severe his life he squared,
That all might see the ilootrines which thoy

If they be foul, on whom the people trust,
Well may the baser brass contract aruit."

in the future. A very favorable snason
would have Iui-po thorn into most expuu
sive enterprises, in fulnre years, which
could not be otherwise than disastrous.
His surprising that intelli
hove encouraged the farmers of Jlliooia,
Missouri aud Kansas, to attempt eoltou
planting, when the fact is notorious that
the plant is never cultivated, except on a
very small acule, in North Carolina and
Tennessee, north of the 'Mi'u pamlM of
latitude. Not one of the northern coun
ties in these .States raises cotton to auy
considerable extent. Iletweon the ZMi
and 30th degrees cotton is cultivated, of
ten successfully, but is subject lo be blight
ed by fruet. The most northern couuty
in North Carolina whero cotten is culu
vnted extensively and successfully i Kdae
comb, which is situated in the lowlands,
and by thesoa breeze.. Tho upland coun
ties iu the same latitude cultivate cotton
on a small scale, but oftou huve their
crops cut off by frost. But in the ivestoru
part of the State that is to shv, west of
Kaleigb, the Stale capitol cotion is not
successfully planted, except in the coun
ties bordering or near to the lino of South
I11 Tennessee, in the same latitudes, the
results aro the same. Maury, of wlach
Columbia is the county seat, is ono of the
finest counties in the Mississippi valley.
It is southwest of Nashville, with a Urge
county between, and yet the cotton cul
ture is most uncertain. When successful
it is very fiue, but the planters oount upon
not mre than two crops in tliio. The
census of 1850 fully sustains the'te state
ments, and it is surprising that thero was
a dotermined purpose tr overlook them.
One or two of the northern' counties of
North Carolina produce about as much
cotton as a lirst class plantutitm on the
Kod Uivor, but those are situated in the
lowlands of the east. Theootton latilicw
of Tennessee show that even in the low
lands, between the Tennessee and the
Mississippi liiver. nocottoo is produced in
counties on the Kontucky border in Obi
on, Weakly, Ac. ; while tho southern
counties between the same liver rival the
be6t ootton districts of Mississippi in pro
ductiveness. In Arkansas tho same ktvv
of climate prevails. Tho southern coun
ties constitute the very liwrt nnd centre
of the cotion region of the United States,
while the northern counties produce very
little, and some of (hem none at all, al
though the soil is highly futile. If peo
ple will attempt to produce Ironical or
semi-tropical plants in the ooldor regions
of tho north, they have no alternative but
to pm ttiein in hothouses."
