LETTERS FROM. EUROPE-NO. 4.
The Scotch Fisheries—lpish Politics—The
Especial Correinxindettee Pittsburgh Gazette.] -
Scortamp, July, 1868.
In our peregrinations we have reach-.
ed Scotland, and are in almost • the
eastern extremity thereof. This morn
ing I looked out on the German Ocean,
so tarpons for its fisheries. The herring,
haddock, cod, &c., caught in itslwaters are
taken to all parts of Europe, and form the
principal article of commerce for the South
eastern coast of Scotland. Hundreds of
men—and men of different nationalities—
• are constantly employed fishing off the
coast of Fifeshire. Yestelday I saw a dozen
or more Frenchmen on the dock "mend
ing their nets," preptratory. to going out
on a fishing excursion. Five men min a
fishing boat; and it is a beautiful sight to see
a hundred or a hundred and fifty boats, their
Sails all-set, going forth over the broad ex
pause of water.' They go out thirty, fifty,
and often eighty miles, set their nets, take
wp the fish caught in them, and return next
day, some.with ten, some with fifteen, and
some - with twenty birrels of fish as the result
Of a night's work. These are hurried
to - the depot, and are soon in all parts of the
United, Kingdom: What would • men do
without railways? • And what a busy,
hJistbaigWorld we are in! At one custom
house near here, Bircaldy, over seven Inn
dred fishing boats have been entered. They
give employment to some thousands of men. .
A few years since a benevolent lady estab
lished a missionary station for the fishermen
on the east' coast of Scotland. These sta
tiomi hive been multiplied as the number
of fishirmen increased,. till now between
'ifixty and seventy iniisionaries are engaged
in evangelical labors on the northern and
eastern shore of- Scotland. Our latitude is
fifty-sii and a fourth degrees" North—more
than sixteen degrees North of New York,
and the'differince of time between this and
Pittiburgh is about five and a half hours.
Thelong twilight and the shortness of the 1
• nights at this season of the year are very
, noticeable. When the days are at the long
eat one can easily see to read at half-past
- ten o'clock at night, and day breaks about
two in the morning. Of course in the
winter season the days are correspondingly
short and the 'nights correspondingly long.
By looking at a map of the world you
will see that England, Scotland and Ireland
cover but a small portion of the great
earth's eurfhce; out they exert a powerful
influence in the world, and stand along with
our own country among the foremost of
civilized nations. - "
. - Before I- write of Scot-.
land and of - what Thkveseen in it, I wish
to say "a few things further concerning Ire
land. Ireland is not what Scotland is, nor
are its people, on the whole, what the peo
ple of Scotland are; arid yet I believe it is
capable of becoming more—capable of be
coming, as John Bright said not long since,
"one of the fairest' flowers of the earth."
It is beautifully situated; it has a genial
climate and a good soil; its surface is not so
'uneven as that of Scotland, nor isits natural
scenery so grand,but for all purposes of agri
culture it certainly surpasses Scotland, and
is capable of supporting a very great popu
lation. In our judgment the following things
are necessary to the prosperity and develop 1
meat of Ireland and its people. 4 1. The
"disendowment and disestablishment" of
the - Irish Church. Many are opposed to
Mr. GladstOne's measure for this, but I have
no doubt it will carry. Indeed, in the com- •
ing elections it will be made the teat clues
' lion. The people say it shall be dose. A
few days since • "the mothers, wive and
daughters of the .Protestants of Ireland
begged to approach Her Majesty (the
Queen) with profound respect," and to
sent a petition "praying that Her Majesty
would, to the utmost extent of her - power,
oppose the present attempt to undermine
the foundations of the Protestant religion
established amongst us." But, notwith
standing the petition of these "wives,
mothers and' daughters," and the Queen's,
"power," even should she see fit to exercise
it, the Irish Church will, sooner or later, be
"disendowed" and severed from its con
nection with the State.
2. Another thing essential to the highest
prosperity of Ireland is the breaking up of
the large landed estates , and the division of
the soil among the peop le. Ireland is poor
compired with what she might be, and.
ought to be, and she.will remain poor so
long as -things continue as they now are.
'The people do not own the - Soil, nor can
- - they - buy it,„ , even jf they had the meats.
- The yew are risk; " the many are poor. True,
farmers can lease land and sometimes for a
long period, but still it is not their own.
They cannot get it in fee simple. The
greater part of the country: is divided into
large landed , estates estates comprising
many_thousands of acres, and covering
many square milmt. The owners of many
of these resitieln England, and on the eon
tinent, and these spendin luxurious living
the products of their estates. Thus, much
of the money made in Ireland is , spent else
where, and - the 'country is 'kept largely
drained. In parts of Ireland some of the
-large land owners have been dealing
In a very oppressive manner with their
farmers and tenants. Instead - of giving
the latter, when they paid- their rent, a re
ceipt in full they would "credit them on at.
count" with so much, thus leaving it in
their own power to eject them whenever
• they pleased. The people 'bevutie incensed
at the treatment they received, and last
April as Featherstone Haugh, — Who bad been
atDublin to make a speech of welcome to
the Prince of Wales,
was returning 'hinne he
was assassinated. The people said they
thought his assassination did good, as it.
frightened other landed proprietors, and
put a stop to their unjust proceedings. The
peOple -must own the soil or they will not
take an'interest in its cultivation, and as a
Consequence of the state of things, Ireland
is full of beggars. • The traveller—especial
ly in the Southern part—is constantly an
> noyed by them. They will follow you for
squares, and utter the name of the Supreme
Being in the lightest and moat irreverent
manner. Another thing : Ireland is full of
Ants and cabins instead of . hauser. It is
only occasionally that yon age a goed;sub
!stantiali, commodious frame • house.:.: - .Of
course, the "Sirs," the “Lords,'! &c., hive,
fine dwellings,' and in - grand style.;
A more genenddiffusion of knowledge
• iiiiieestark to Ireland's - regeneratidn and
development. Am ignorant
but be a - degraded The masses of
_ the Irish are lamentably ignorant., They
- ,nietttfillitaitnOthizi6- ,, The 'children are
not educated and grow tip in ignorance. I,
1 head the` remark Made the' other' day-in
1 Belfast, and I believe it is true, that two
thirds brthe Irteh people ire not capable of,
forming an intelligent opinion on any poll
t - tad topic. -They know nothing about, the
geography Of their own country, t e s a y
a word of other: ,countries; they can't
you the distance of the nearest places,. nor
r the porinlation of their -towns, or cities or
districts. • Many of them have gone to the
United States and moier l ititild 16 - If 'WO
could. At this Ido not wonder. •" Indade,
it's a great thing to git to Ameriky," said a
poor but honest.lrishman to me the other
Another thing that curses Ireland, and
from which she may well groan to be deliv
ered, is intoxicating liquor. How the soul
of the righteous is vexed from day to day in
seeing so many ruining themselves for time
and eternity by that which maddens and
destroys I Alas ! drinking is too common
here as elsewhere.' At the ,last meeting of
the General Assembly it was stated that
"drinking and drunkenness" were on the
inerease in Ireland; that in 1860 something
over three million gallons of intoxieating
beverages were drunk, and in 1867 the num
ber of gallons was over five millions,• and
that on a specified day a sermon should be
preached in all the (Presbyterian) churches
against intemperance. I - do not now recol
lect that, during the ten days that I was in
Ireland, I saw a single one smoking a ci
gar (unless it was an American,) but the
pipe was in nearly every one's mouth ! It
seems to ane that every good man should
fervently pray: "From the cup and the
pipe, Good Lord, deliver us." • •
Belfast, distant by rail ( 110 miles from
Dublin, is by far the finestlcity in Ireland.
Its streets are in the main wide and clean,
and its buildings generally good. It le
minds one of an. American r city. Its build
ings are as good, I think as a general thing,
better than those of Cincinnati. It is the
greatest linen emporium in the world, and
many of its richest merchants are in the
linen trade. It is in the centre,
south of the "Linen District." Belfast has
lately sent two of her most distinguished
men to the United States. John Hall, a
Presbyterian minister, to Ncw York, where
he gets a salary of $lO,OOO in gold, and Dr.
JameiMcCosh, who, for sixteen years, was
Profe.sor of Metaphysics-and Moral Philos
ophy in Queen's College, to Princeton, New
Jersey. He has been appointed to and ac
cepted the Presidency of that College. The
Amerio n, who is so far north as Belfast, is
almost sure to visit the "Giant's Cause
way." It is situated on the extreme north.
ern boundary of Ireland, and is worth visit
iug as an unexplainable natural curiosity. It
is wonderful, indeed, and the basaltic columns
of wlich it is composed cannot be accounted
for on any scientific principles. -As when
visiting "Old Niagara" for the first time
You are disappointed and say It is not so ma
jestic or grand as you had imagined; so when
you first look on the "Giant's Causeway"
you feel disappointed; it does not meet your,
- expectations, but it grows upon you, and
I the longer you look the more you wonder.
You are out on the ocean in a boat and the
beautiful bays, the hold prominent coast!
rising above you 400 feet, and the regu
larly formed columnar pillars, all conspire
to make the view impressive and grand.
Scientific men know not how to account
for the formation of the causeway. Nature
often works raysterionsly,_and here is one
of her strangest and most mystetious works.
On the evening of July 17th, we bade
adieu to Ireland, and per steamer "Buffalo"
sailed for. Glasgow. Going out of the fine,
large bay,' at the head' Of which Belfast is
situated, we had a good view of the bold
headlands along the shore;and night com
ing on, we were soon out the Irish sea.
At four, next morning our vessel halted at ,
Greenock, and two hours afterwards we ,
were in Glasgow. In the river Clyde we
were disappointed. It is chiefly a made
river. The labor of man has rendered it
navigableto Glasgow. It is narrow and its
water • very dirty, and, when stirred,
offensive in smell. Blockade run
ners were built on its banks during our
war;, and hnndreds of vessels in all stages of
the process of building are now to be seen
on its banks. The country, however, tothe
north and south of it is beautifu!,
and on it s .
left hand bank as you ascend is a bold,
craggy, high rock, on which are the ruins
of Dunbarton Castle, and from which Mary,
Queen of Scots, when a child, sailed away
The heat and drouth; especially In Ireland
and Scotland, are very great this summer.
The earth is parched, and the crops, though
looking very well, need rain. On Thurs
day of this week the thermometer stood at
120 degrees in London, thewarmest weather
that has been known for over forty years
Petroleum us Fuel
Last spring the reports of the experiments
conducted In New York and Boston as to
the practicability of, using petroleum as fuel
on steamboati were published in the GA
zurru. We tuivenow to publish a repetition
of these trials at Detroit, Michigan, on last
Tuesday. The • method of application
appears to 'be the same . as in the
Boston experiments and of the general
opinion . expressed by the Detroit steamboat
men was favorable. As to the question of
relative cost, it was claimed that crude air
at the present price of from sixty to eighty
cents &barrel, will only be. or e-half as ex
pensive as wood. A barrel, it. was asserted,
will go as, far as a cord of wood, and the oil
to do the work of forty cords of wood can
be put in the space occupied by, four cords,
leaving the space taken Tap by the thirty-six
curds for freight.
Ix Cesens, the reports of the crops are
beginning to come in. The wheat, it is
stated, generally promises to furnish over
average crop, and most of it is ready for
reaping. , Hay is turning out better than
was expected, and is of excellent quality
and well saved, Barley will not come up
to-the average; and the oats and peas are
-burnt up,with the heat. Hops and corn are
looking- well; but, owing to the long-con
tinued drought, potatoes and buckwheat
must prove almost a total failure. In
L'Original platrict, in addition to the
drought, there have been great losses occa
isione.d by the immense fires which have
been raging in the woods for several weeks.
The fires have in some places swept before
them large fields of grain—leaving nothing
but a smoky, blackened plain. Itis atkerted
that thousands of dollars "have been lost,
and that it would be almost impossible to
calculate the loss for a distance of sixty
miles each way.
