With 'odds so fearful, the conflict will be
terrible, but—
'On our side is Virtue and Erin;
Oh theirs is the Saxon and Guilt:'
'The battle is not to the strong, nor the
race to the swift.' It is with the Lord of
Hosts-to decide; anti whether it has pleas

signsiin the greater purification of the ev•

ry ordeal of further persecution, or in their
full and final tegeneration under the gui
dance of the modern Moses, time alone
can tell; but that crisis is at hand, no one
observant of the times, can doubt. Events
pregnant with the most momentous con
sequences not only to Ireland, but. to the
cause of civil and religious liberty all over
the world, have, for the last six months,
succeeded each other with almost ominous
sapidity, The sublime demonstration of

boys at 'the city of the violated treaty;' the
80,000 bold peasantry at Carrickmaerose;

anti secure of his support in any anti-it ish
crusade he may attempt, the Premier will,
in all probability, endeavor to crash the
Repeal movement and Irish liberty at one
blow, by some 'bloody and brutal enact
ment.' V.Fe via/3! then woe, woe to the
people of Ireland.
Again will be enacted the sanguinary
scenes and whulesorn,, mlgslcrra of '9B
and '4l—the times of the Beres'ords, the
Cromwolls, the IVlcrutujoys, and the Coot

cap and the picket, the hatchet and the
halter, the blood-stained bayonet, and the
murderous musket, continuous files and
unsheathed swords, spread terror and tits

green field's of Erin; until the ground again
be drunk with the blood of her butchered
children. Again shall legalized robbery,
plunder, and confiscation sweep with the
unerring certainty of the simoon over the
lands of our sire'', our nearest and dearest
connections to enrich the hired myrmidons
of' British tyranny, British cupidity and
British cruelty. Once again shall Ireland
be struck prostrate to the earth, spurned
beneath the iron heel of the sponger.
'Already the curse is upon her,
And strangers her valleys profane;
They come to divide—to dishonor
- And tyrants they long wilt remain!'
Fellowscountrymen, shall this he so?—
Shall the green field of our fathers be err -
sanguined with the blood of your relative ,
and friends: your nearest and dearest con
sections? Shall Ireland be again handed
over to the tender mercies of tne ferocious
Orangemen of Fermat.agh, or the hired
Hessians from Hanover? Shall the cha s t e
and lovely daughters of Erin he again ex
posed to the ruffianly gaze of a brutal soles

himself, now approximating the goal of his
glorious career, be insulted with arm est, I

The Repeal Movement.
The exciting and interesting intelligence
received by the last stParn2r, relative to
the progress of the Repeal movement in
Ireland, has infused fresh vizor into those
who are laboring for Rveal in this coun
try. There were five meetings in the city
of N e w Yolk last week. each one evincing
a rapid increase in the devotion and en
thusiasm of the friends of Reveal in that
city. At these meetings above .jl4OO w ere
collected to aid the cause. A mass meets

i•es to be a tremer.dons asgemhlage of the
enthusiastic friends of It elmd.

clearly that the Gazette, ill giving an ac

statements totally destitute of truth, and
when the persons calumniated asked per—

the medium that forced them on the pub

"The neat. cratic Union."
This is the name of the new paper is
sued at. Harrisburgh by the proprietor s of
the late democratic journals of that place•
The new arrangement, by which the three
democratic papers have been merged into
one, will, besides giving to the party a
powerful organ at the seat of government,
result greatly to the advantage of the prof,
prietors themselves, and make their posi
tion not only m're pleasant, but more
profitable and independent than hereto
fore. With three democratic papers at th e
Capitol, it was impossible to keep down
the factious feelings that. were engendered
at every meeting, of the legislature, and
every election of public printers wai

ring the brlance of :he session. But un
der the new arrangement no annoyance of
this kind will exist; with but one demo,
cratic establishment, there will be no dif
ficulty in electing a public printer, and the
proprietors feeling secure in the confidence
of the party, will not be compelled to sac
rifice their independence to secure the
support of doubtful friends.
The Union will be the organ of the
whole party, and whatever may have been
the practices of certain journals at Harrisn

from in.thi'vl4sity-Orillator Taylor's settlement
on Lalg,'ltronine.
Some negroes working in a field reported that
they had heard Indians talking in a hammosk
hard by. An examination was made, and some
rum:cu•in tracks found. Maj. Taylor sent a
message to Gen. Worth. apprising his of the
fact, and asking for troops.
Answer was returned, that as the Indians had
decamped without doing harm, and as they prob
ably would do none, it was not advisable to mo
lest them. The settlers at this spot sot forth on
their own account in pursuit oldie Indians.
This very injudicious move will exasperate
them, if they arc attacked, and they will probably
rt wogs themselves by falling upon other settle
It is presumed that they were either in pies of
heir putnes,or perhaps fur sometning that limpet.
t former period buried there.
The, above extract, although on a seti
ous subject, really affords more matter for
amusement than apprehension. The ne.
groes, it seems 'heard the Indians talking'
in a hammock, and thereupon the poor
darkies gat badly scared. It would seem
from this that 'lndian talk' is more alarm..
ing in the Florida hammocks, than in more
civilized portions of the Union. But this
was not all the grounds for the terror
which took possession of the poor affright
ed Africans and their chivalrous masters.
When all seemed safe, the hammock was
examined, and terrible to relate, the aw
ful suspicions were confirmed by finding of
'moccasin tracks No doubt could pos.
sibly exist that there had been 'lndians
about,' and Major Taylor, who was in
command at the: stltion, seamed resolved
to have the red interlopers sewed up in their
own hammocks. To compass this, he sent
a messenger to nen. Worth, to ask for
troops. The worthy commander, howev,
er, did not think it worth his while to
move in the malts,, and advised Major
Taylor riot to 'molest them.' This advice
was very good to ho sure, bor,perhaps,will
be thought useless as there was no enemy to
I 'molest,' and might not be one within one
hundred miles.
T he next paragraph, however, offers
explanatirin of the peaceable beha
vior of Gen. I Vorth. It is said that the In
dians will be 'exasperated it they are at—
tacked,' and like the hyena in the men•
agerie, will become furious when irritated.
Now much blood would have bee!: saved,
if this cautious and prudent course had
been pursued by al m litary commanders!
The fame ofthe tightinz generals must de.
dine before the sag icious Worth—and
benc-forth the great struggle of generals
will be t,-) avoid irri:ating those whom they
are sent to romper

the ridiculous accounts of the Florida war,

The Flour Busioes.
Quite a smart competition has• been
going On in our city fir some weeks past
in the aitiel: of Flour. Here tofore all
t he large purchases of this article were
made by a single house, and by confining
itself to that line of business almost exclu
sively, and having, an abundant supply of
funds, it had the market to itself and could
drive off all smaller' competitors, flu t a
rival house has sprung up, which appears
to be as well skilled in the business, has as
long and as well file I a purse, slid
po-•esses many advantages for the sale of
its fl inr in the east that are not enj ived by
the old esti!) Ish•nent. This rivalry will
divide the profits, but there will still he
enough for both houses, and it will be
the means of fornishing our farmers and 1

cannot hot teal curious to know, what has occa

Moon; it is true, that even your servility could
no longer tolerate the repeated hints and eviden

the State Department with the slightest regard to
appearances, but evea this evident necessity fur
your withdrawal from that post, fails to furnish
to one as pryinz and inquisitive as myself good
and sufficient reason for the stand you have n rw
taken, and for the intrigues into which you have
plunged so rapidly, and wi,ich appear to have
been fully under way before your retirement from
Washington. Are you, sir, about to urge your
claims fur the honors of the White House? and if
you are, into the arms of which party do you ins
tend to cast your partly proportions for success
and support? Perhaps you look longingly to the
JefFersonian Democrats,of whom you so pompous,.

broiling Virginia Sun of Richmond; perhaps you
mean, oven at this late hour, to cry hold to the
pretensions of the old sage of Ashland, and to di',

the great whig party. Or, perhaps, there is still
another plan, dark and deep, and desperate, which
nevertheless your giant Main has conceived, and
