of whom 1.552,006, or five sixths, were
Germatt ‘ and Irish, the former numbering
694,517, and the - litter 857,489. This
excess of Irish' arm probably hem the
Irish famine of 1846, which caused a gen
eral rush for A m e rica. Previous to that
period the 'German immigrants exceeded
the Irish,' and aslate as the year 1847, the
Germans numbered 53,180, and the Irish

Ireland has vasil . fimproved since the
famine and the emigration consequent
upon it. Libor is now in greet demand
there, and the poor have no longer the
same temptation to leave their native laud
as they once had. In Germany some of
the lending governments have thrown
such obstacles in the way of emigration
us to prevent the former rush. Such is
the case in Prussia, for example. Tho ad
vices from America have also been very
discouraging, as the latter emigrants have
experienced more suffering than those for.
merly, on account of the great numbers
that were here already.
But the immigration from Great Brit
ain has not fallen off in the sante ratio as
tlerGerinan and Irish. During the year
1855, 18,210 Englirli, Welsh and Scotch
arrived at New York. The number of
these immigrants arriving at other ports is
pretty well maintained. There is a prob.
ability that from Eng and especially there
way be witliiu the next tea years an aug
mentation of the 8111110 stream. The
strikes in the manufacturing districts, so
frequently occurring. generally result in a
large contribmiati of eutigraula to tho great
republic of the West.
The effect and inluenco of this great
flood of immigrants to this country, uiny
be seen in the following facts iu relation
to the State of New "York.
This State, according to the census of
last year, has 651,b21 voters, of whom
516.745 are native, and 135,077 naturali
zed. The latter does not however furnish
an indication of the total alien population,
which is 632,753. The actual vote polled
at the State elections is generally from
100.000 to 150,000 short of the whole
number of voters. The basis of represen
tation iu the Legislature is the entire na
tive and naturalized population, exclusive
of aliens and colored persons not taxed.—
Under it the city of New York will have
but seventeen members in the lower house.
For, although the whole population i 5629.-
810, the aliens number 232,678. and the
persons of color not taied, 10,807, thus
leaving a taxed and representative popu
lation of 386,325. The native voters in
the - city number 46,118, and the naturali
zed voters 42,702. Here it is seen that
'while the native population own• the great
er portion of the property of the city, yet
they are very nearly balanced by the for
eign populstton who vote not on property
qualification or descent, but upon their
certificate of naturalization. It is there
fore no wonder that New York is tax-rid
den beyond all precedent, and cursed with
corrupt, profligate and abandoned rulers.

feeling, and lead to some difficulty in the
recognition of Mr. Buch anan's suceasor.
It may also embarrass Lori Palmerston's
official tenure, as his remaining at the head
of affairs would probably prevent an
able adjustment of the controversy. From
positive developments which have been
made, the step now taken by our Admin

THF: FERTILITY OF Karieks.—Hun.
Sterling G. Cato, the Territorial Judge, in
a recent letter to his brother, ul Enfalts,
Ala., says :
• i'lie people here are quiet and orderly,
sharp and intelligent ; a little rough in
manners, but warm hearts and cordial.—
This is as fine a country as any on the
face of the earth, and the profits of its pro
ductions would far exceed thos'e of the
cotton fields of thin South. Ail kinds of
grain, grass, clover and hemp yield a rich
product. I have no doubt but that slave.
labor would yield in hemp, corn and g rain
at least •thirty to forty dollars per acre an
auallc. I have seen no poor land ;it all
seems to me richer that tire best Chatty
hocha bottom, and .nost of it just such land 1
as in the adjoining Missouri counties is
now selling at twenty to fifty dollars an
acre. Corn is now selling at twenty cents
per bushel, and the product estimateg at
z.one hundred bushels an acre ; and hemp
crop (six tons per hand) at it4o per ton,
and you see at once how labor is morel
productive here than at the South. It is
impossible to give an adequate idea of the
beauty and fertility of the soil and coun
try ; generally rolling, without a great
deal of timber, but as I understand, aboun
ding in coal for fires, and slime for build
ing and fencing good wells of water can
be obtained anywhere, besides frequent
streams running through the praries."

try-yards and sheep-lolds have been rob
bed to a (rightful extent, and in several
instances the hungry beasts have not been
inclined to spare tile human species. The
Keokuk Post of the I Ith ult., says :
About three weeks ago, a man was re
turning from a pras er meeting, accompan
ied by his too daughters, one sixteen and
the other twenty-three years of age. They
were' ail riding the same horse, when sud
denly a pack of timber wolves assailed
them, and being unable to escape by flight
they attempted to defend themselves.—
But the ferocious brutes attacked the horse,
rendering him unmanageable. The old
est daughter was partly thrown and part
ly drugged to the grinOul and instantly
devoured. This enabled the lather and
-other daughter to escape. Several
neighbors were soon mustered but upon
repairing to the spot nothing was found
but one shoe, and a very few remnants
of the unfortunate girl's clothing.
A .boy of shout thirteen years old left

IMPORTANT TO POSTMAIITERB.-Our
tendon has been' called to the fact that
come postmasters are in the habit of send
ing back to'the mailing office letters reach
ing them for delivery, because they were
not prepaid by stamps, but by money.—
This is wrong, and arises from a miaap

the office of delivery, be returned for poet
age, much less .should it be returned be

It is the general duty of postmasters to
see that letters are prepaid by atamps,
but when (having, been prepaid in cash,
either through ignorance of the law, or
inadvertence, or want of stanips on part
ofthe . mailing Postmssier) they reach
their destination; it is the duty of the poet.

happen, in the introduction of the stamp
