' LONDON,r 29:=-The" act 'passed by
• Congress for the proteation ofAmerican
citizens abroad is unfavorably criticized by
the English:press, though its passagedoes
not appear ,to excite surprise or anger.
...The journals affect to consider the bill as a
partisan measure for effect:- on the 'failee.
thins, but they think it: will not'promOte
• the success of 'American negotiations with
::foreign powers to secure the establiihinent
of principles of nationality.
LONDON July a—The Timms says the
r...4<the gunerloanr(itiaen act will
aurpr was to be expected:
that the majority of the United States Con
gress would nuke, through such% mess
- • z ure as this; a direct bid for the Irish vote
in the coming election. There is nothing
in the general principle of the bill for„.Eag

have • taken out their naturalize
r ill, the United States may
properly use'" - American passports while
• traveling in Europe or serve in the
armies of the Uniied . States, even
against Great Britain. So - long es their
new citizenship is a bona fiderqualification,
made in accordance with the Airteridan'
• naturalization laws, nothing can be said.
I The real purpose of the Fenian is protected
's by the new citizenship thus conferred on
- him to make war upon the Queen of Eng
land in her realm. But here, they Must be
treated as subjects guilty of treason. Aliens
and natives are on the same footing in such a
case. The denialof ajury mecliatate lingua
: in the trial 'Of thopecruer packet prisoners
was right, because the trial of such a case
: as that deperided:•en internal, not interim
tional ifiws.t The evidence obtained in the
,; United States'against these , prisoners, to
prove that they were members of the
• Fenian Brotherhood,_ was merely collateral.
The real crime,Charged against these men
•• was committed on British territory. , 1
The Times even accepts the rule that a
.•naturalized citizen of_ the United States
'Amity come to England with impunity; after
Plotting agifinst the Queen in America, if
he conies peaceably. "
The Morning Post sags the addption of
"'the bill by Congress ,anticipates and'conse
a.quently delays the settlement of the ques

where capital and labor thrive, and where
idleness is almost unknown, has its garden

to oltain recreation from toil. It is a place

with the odor of new-mown hay, the

a number of brawny, iron -fisted! workmen,
by whose labor the motive power of this
great iron highway is accelerated, step Out,
and away the train starts for Lawrence

Away we 'start again, and three minutes

'with its beautiful suburban residences, for
the wealth of the city commences here to
beautify the country.' A. fine design for a
fountain, at the foot of Dr. Hussey s prop

sunny Italy, Stands boldly out to view
near the station. For more than two years
it has been silent—no gushing stream
having made its weleome appearance.
Elegant mansions are seen through the
trees in all directions, with Sowers, gravel
walks and fish ponds; denoting the home
of taste and wealth.

East Liberty is but one of the wards of the

inhabitants and 800 new buildings have
been erected during the past year. An
