EMH.AND —Since the sailing of the previous j
steamer. Parliament has done little more than ;
vote the supplies and transact other business of j
a local and uninteresting character.
In addition to the Eird Lieutenancy of Ire
land, it is stated that the government have it \
in conteropl turn to abolish the Irish courts of i
law, and transfer the whole machinery for :
government to London. Both measures are
violently opposed by the Irish press.
Agricultural operations, both in England I
and Ireland, are being carried on tins year on ■
ti must extensive scale.
The repeal agitatienhas been partially rp- !
newed in Ireland, under the auspices of John 1
O'Connel, but there is a lack of' its former spirit.
The trade in the woollen districts has sensi
bly improved of late.
Frightful Shipwrecks. —The English const
was visited by a severe hurricane on the 30th
ot March, causing much destruction of pro- j
perty and a frightful loss of life. Amongst
other vessels lost, was the John K. Skiddy, i
which wa3 driven ashore on the const ol Wex
tord, and totally wrecked Capt. Shipley, the j
passengers and crew, were saved. The How- !
ard, from New Orleans, was also wrecked at
the entrance of the Mersey.
The steamer Adelaide, from Dublin to Lon

The coast everywhere is strewn with por
tions of corpses that have fallen a prey to the
Smith O'Brien and his Companions.—Ad
vices from Hobart's Town, Van Dieman's
land, have been received, announcing the ar
lival there of Smith O'Brien, and his associates
in the Irish rebellion of 1849. The felons
were granted tickets of leave on condition of
their engaging that their liberty should not be
used as a means to effect their escape. All
except O'Brien, accepted the boon. He has
been sent, under surveilance, to Maria Island.
FRANCE. —At Patis, although there is in
creased excitement and greater bitterness be
tween conflicting parties, the only marked
events of the fortnight have been: First—The
revolt of one of the regiments, which the gov
ernment has not succeeded in quelling. {Sec
ond—A popular demonstration, in a small way
against Louis Napoleon as he passed through
the streets.
Perhaps the most significant event in the
Legislative Assembly was the proposition by
M. de La Rochejaquelin, a friend of the Pres
ident's, to the effect that cn the first Sunday in
June, the nation should be called upon to pro
nounce definitely on the form of government
which it should choose to select —that every
elector should be called upon to inscribe on his
ballot, monarchy or republic —that if a repub
lic should acquire the majority, it should be
proclaimed in the Chamber by the President of
the Republic; and if the monarchy obtained
the majority, it should be proclaimed by the
President of the Assembly. This remarkable
proposal was received in solemn silence by the
majority, and by derisive sneers from the Moun
tain; but at length the proposal was negatived,
jt having fallen to the ground in consequence
of not being seconded, and the previous ques
tion was immediately voted unanimously.
The members of the Mountain received the
announcement with a cry ol " Viva la Repub
lique." It is said that the President of the
Republic is so mnch in debt, that nothing but
the possession of the imperial crown can ex
tricate him, and that he is at present engaged
in negotiations with Russia for the purpose of
possessing that, to him, now necessary protec
tion. The government arc perseveringly em
ployed in intioducing their measure* of coer
cion, in which Ihe majority of the Assembly
support them.
GREECE Advices from Athens are to the

TUSCANY. —The Tuscan government hae re
fused to accede to Lord Palmerston's demand
of indemnity for losses sustained by their sub
jects at Leghorn la6t year. The difficulty has
been submitted to the arbitration of the Sardin
ian government.
RUSSIA. —An imperious note has been ad
dressed by the Russian government to that of
Prussia, on the subject of the Sehleswig Hol
fetein dispute. After enumerating all the
points at issue the note says there are so many
tacts which the Emperor cannot regard with
indifference, and from which he cannot in con
science release the Prussian Cabinet from.
The note concludes by distinctly intimating
the determination of the Emperor to empioy
decisive measures, if neceasaty, in support of
the Danish side of the controversy.
PRUSSIA. —A serious ruplHre has occurred
between the Governments of Prussia and Wur
ternberg in consequence of the tone assumed
by the King of the Utter country in opening the

I rer Trade in Kngland is giving so much
prospentv to manufacturers in that country,
that something must be clone for our own manu
facturers, to enable them to maintain their po
sition. Y\ ewc uld suggest the same thing which
nae acccomplished so much for the manufac
tures ol England."— Journal of Commerce.
Precisely so ! Give our manufacturers
an abundance of skilled labor at 15 to 45
cents per day, and they can do without
Protection. It is that, mainly, which ena
bles their British rivals to undersell them.
And the Journal has always been favora
ble to the mode of cherishing American
Manufacturers here indicated—by screw
ing down the wages of Labor. It has
ever been a consistent advocate of the Low
M ages policy. It goes on to say :
" It must be remembered that not the United
States only, but the world is the market to be
competed for. If we cannot make goods as
cheaply as England, or about as cheap, she will
underbid us in foreign markets. We ought not
to be satisfied with merely the home market."
M ell, let her " underbid us in foreign
markets," as long as her laborers are com
pelled to work lor an average of twenty
live cents per day, while wc, " satisfied
with merely the home markets," secure to
our own workmen an average of one dol
lar per day. Give us adequate Protection
to secure our Home Market, nnd we will
wrest plenty, comfort and competence out
of our own soil, although we never sell a
hale of goods abroad. Last year we
bought over three limes as much British
Calico as we did under the tariff of 'l2,
and got in debt to Europe (by sending
Storks abroad and selling them) to the ex
tent of many millions of dollars. In
other words, wc kept our own would-be
Iron workers and Cloth makers unwilling
ly idle and run in debt to Europe for the
fabrics they ought to have produced, be
cause the Foreign were cheap ! If that
is true economy, then we are grossly igno
rant of its A B C's.— X. J'. Tribune.
The steamer Belle of the West, (laptain
James, was burned one mile below War
saw, Kentucky, at 1 o'clock this morning.
She was bound from this city to St. Louis,
with California Emigrants. She was im
mediately run ashore near Warsaw, made
fast, and the stage plank run out. L'p to
this moment, the llames had not burst
The after hatch was then raised, for the
purpose of letting water into the hold, but
such was the pressure of the llames that
all efforts to quell them were entirely fruit
less, and in a few moments ihe whole boat
was wrapped in flames.
The total number of passengers on
board is estimated at 100—among whom
were two companies of California emi
grants, and about twenty families removing
West. From flic register it is ascertained
that over sixty have perished, and the
probability is that many have been lost
whose names are not enrolled.
Such was the progress of the fire that
before the passengers could get out of their
state rooms, after the first alarm of fire,
all communication between the after cabin
and forward part of the boat was cut off,
and either all were compelled to jump
overboard, or perish in the llames.
The scene is described as heart-rending.
At the time of the deck in, a lady
and gentleman, with a child in his arms,
who were standing between the chimnies,
were precipitated into the flames.
A large number of horses on hoard
were either burnt to death, or so badly in
jured, that they had to he killed to put
them out of their misery.
NAVAL EXECUTION. — It LS said that as
the U. S. sloop of war Germantown was
recently passing out of the harbor at St.
Thomas, a man was run up tr the yard
arm. It will be remembered that a sori- 1
ous mutiny occurred on board this vessel
while lying in Hampton Roads, just pre-,
vious to her sailing on her present cruise. >
The actors in that mutiny were thought
to have been too leniently dealt with.
These facts taken in connection with the j
circumstances mentioned above, arc pain
fully suggestive of an opinion that on this,
as on another memorable occasion, a sum
mary execution has been deemed necessa
ry.—Jioston Journal.
A magnificent steamer, the St. Louis,
left that city on the 12th instant on her
first trip to New Orleans, with a cargo of
fifteen hundred tons of produce. She is
said to be the largest steamer of the West
cm waters, her entire length on deck being
317 feet, iler cabin is 268 feet long, fit
ted and furnished with everything that can
conduce to the comfort of passengers. A j
nursery and servants' apartment, baths
with hot and cold water, and various
other appliances are provided.
dall, in one of his late letters from Paris,
: says there is a large house in the city,
fitted up for the reception of cats, dogs,
birds, <fec., when attacked by disease, and
where they are nursed and physicked ac
cording to rule. They have a class of
practitioners who confine themselves exclu
sively to the cure of these animals, and
fortunes are made in the way of business,
by members of the profession.

MINRSOTA. —As this newly organized territory
is but imperfectly known to many of our read
ers, a few particulars of its leading features
will doubtles prove acceptable. Miresota is
about four times the extent of Ohio, and reach
es 675 miles from S. E. to N. W., and lies be
tween IV. lat. 42 d'eg. 30 min. and 49 deg. The
centre of the territory is about 1200 miles in a
direct line from either ocean, 1000 from the Gulf
of Mexico, and 800 from Hudson's Hay. It is
chiefly a rolling country, well watered with riv
ers and lakes, and the highest hill does not ex
ceed 2000 feet above the sea, and 1000 feet
above the surrounding country. The Capital,
fit. Paul, is 15 miles by water and nine miles by
land, below the Falls of St. Anthony, and the
river is navigable to the Falls for steamers of
considerable burthen. St. Paul contains about
1200 inhabitants, and several large hotels, and
the new town of St. Anthony at the Falls, about
990. There is also a town named Stillwater,
on the St. Croix River, 18 miles from St. Paul,
with 900 people, hotels and saw mills. The
Marine Mills, Point Douglass, Mendota or St.
Peter's, and the Falls of St. Croix, arc flourish
ing villages. Day laborers obtain S2O a month,
ar.d mechanics $1,75 to $2 per day. The public
lands may be taken up at $1.25 per acre. The
total number of Indians is 27,000, and there is a
strong military post at Fort Snelling, on the
Mississippi. The whole number of white in
habitants in the territory is about 5000. The
distance from New Fork to St. Paul, by Buffalo,
Detroit, Chicago and Galena, is 1537 miies—by
the Ohio and Mississippi, St. Louis, &c. 2229
miies. The land of Minesota is very produc
tive. One hundred and seventy miies of the
Norlhem boundary, is along the shore of Lake
Superior.—.Vcirorfc .frlcoeale.

or Vegetable Vermifuge,
The most effectual, the safest, pleasantest
and most convenient Worm Medicine
ever offered to the public.
rpiin BPIGELIA, says a work of highest authority, j
itaml* at the he <ui of th< list of .Ivtktlmintict or ilurui :
Midmnr.'. It is adapted to a wider range of cases,and
to a greater variety of constitutions and states of the
constitution, than any other. But prepared HB it com- |
inonly if, in the form of tea, it can seldom he given to j
children in sufficient doses. In Harris, Turner & Hale's ;
Compound Syrup, it is so concentrated that rtie dose is ;
v 'ry small, so combined as to ensure a purgative opera- j
tion, and so palatable as to he taken, not only with ease, ■
hut with positive pleasure.
The prerise composition of this syrup art? the m .it of
pr-psrin? it, are tlie result of a series of experiment*
continued for years. Before offering it for sale, i' was
subjected to the test of experience in the hands of emi
nent physicians, in Philadelphia and elsewhere, who hive
recommended it in the highest terms, and still employ it
in their practice. In addition to this evidence of its mer
its, we oif.-r the following, selected from a number of un
solicited testimonials.
Ist. A distinguished physician of Virginia, of murli
experience, writes'if it thus:
"1 nle.nli! have written before this, but felt disposed
first to try the efficacy of your Vermifuge. I have used
more Than half the quantity received,and the experiment
has been most successful, t really believe that if p<user
aee advintagts ertr iny ather Virmifugt I have ercr uttil.
Independent of the smallness of the dose, and the plea
santness of the syrup (creat advantages in dosing chil
dren) the advantage of administering it tinder a variety
of circumstances, enhances it* value; indeed there is
scarcely a condition of the system in which it may not
tie administered. Yours, Ac."
\ respectable physician of I ebanon county, in th
state, writes
" I have been In the habit of prescribing your f'ompnued
Syrup of Spigella for some time past, and have found it
an excellent worm medicine, particularly for children. —
Please forward per bearer 2 iloz. bottles.—Yours,Ac."
3d.—An intelligent merchant of Virginia to whom we
had previously sold the syrup, writes:
"Since my return home, I find that your Syrup of Spi
eelia has come into general use in this neighborhood. We
have sold what we bad on hand, and it gave such sati*-
faction that it is now called forevey day. You will please
pul us up 5 or fisior.cn in a small package, and send to the
care of VV. Anderson A Co., Richmond, as soon as possi
ble, and forward the bill per mail.—Yours, Ac."
•iih.— A respectable merchant of Ohio, on a late visit to
Philadelphia, stated, that some tune since lie had been ap
plied to by a customer for a vial of "e Ver
mifuge for his son. Not having the article asked for. he
advised a 'rial of Harris, Turner A. Hale's Compound
Pyrupof -Spigeiia and gave him a part f n Wife which
was all l i.i' remained in the store. A day or two after
this the gentleman returning to the store, expressed his
surprise and delight at the effect of the Syrup, declaring
it had expelled 200 worms and entirely relieved his son.
The merchant added an expression of his great regret that
lie had not had on hands a bottle of the Syrup at the time
when his own little daughter died, as he confidently be
lieved it would have saved her life.

tie of Harris, Turner & Hale's Compound SyriipofSpi
