It appears to be a settled fact—at
least all the English papers mention it
as inditiputable, though wonderful 7 L
that Irish agriculture is once more ex
pending its energies upon the potatoe
crop, despite the warning. faliners, more
br less complete, of the lest four years.
All the accounts say that the cotters
fad even most of the large farmers are
again planting with potatoes. Possibly
one reason-- - -perhaps the only one—is
that means are wanting to prepare the
soil for other cultivation ; even the seer!
itself may be, scarce. All this serves io
demonstrate the wisdom of the remedies
proposed by sir Robert Peel. Ireland,
• ,
ys the N. Y. Commercial, wants me
rle' generation much more than polit
-7a I. The lead, Which is the basis of
ational industry and prosperity, is bur
ied under a fearful load of burdens,
mainly the fruit of long existing errors
and abtile.e. These burdens must be
swopt away, and this be done only by
awn flail speelnl legislation, expressly
itdapted for the purpose, and acting with
more vigor and rapidity than the techni-
L. A cal roles 9f ordinary law can supply:
it, iihe empire abounds with capital Which
. seeks employment; Ireland wants capi
tal, With skill and ekterprfee to guide it.
Clearly, therefore; the desirable thing is
to turn or invite the capital of the em
pire into this channel; and this tan be
done only by sweeping away all the hin
d,rances which at present discourage
both capital and industry by withhold
leg from them their just coinpensrition.
My The present condition of Ireland is for
•thly illustrated by the following narra
f tive :
Captain Elistace ' a land-holder who
resided in Dublin, finding, after the po
tato rot had continued four years, that
/come of his tenants could no longer pay
their £I 15s ($8,50) per ncre rent, dis
charged his tenants fro:n 250 acres, and
got a Mr. Smith, a Yorkshire farmer
from England, who examined the lands
- with the view of becoming a tenant.—
He took two weeks to make up his mind,
saw the land in every state, pasture,
meadow and tillage, and then sent in
his prspnsals in writing. It was exact
ly this. He would require the land grat
is, without a penny rent, for five years,
and five hundred pounds ($2,400) in
hand from the landlord, never to be re
paid, to build a suitable homestead. At
the end of five yenrs he would pay nine
($2,15) an acre. for 850 acres.
The old tenants had paid £ I 15 per
acre up to the year 1848. the fourth year
of the potato blight. Captain Easter,
startled, amazed at the offer, said this
land paid £1 15 the acre." ',lmpossi
ble," said the honest Englishman ; "here
are figures and facts; here is the ex
penditure, for labor, manure, rent and
' taxes, and here again nre the receipts
and probable annual profits of the farm."
"There is, no doiibt," he added, 'oa
large balance remaining yearly on hand,
f r which I will require to support my fatn
on their usual fare of bread, beef, mut
ton and ale." The Englishman did not
know that the former tenantry paid out
nothing for labor, cultivating their lands
with their own and children's labor,
living on the potatoe, or nothing at all,
if you will, so that the whole profits of
the farm went into the owner's pocket.
The gallant captain says, this is bad
business, and thought of getting back
his old tenants,hnt they were half way to
America. The '25 0 acre farm of Bally
doyl is still unlet, producing weeds
from that day to this, paying rates and
taxes, but not giving the owner one
farthing rent. This is one isolated case,
and there are plenty of fellows to it.
THUNDER-STORM.-A terrific thunder
and hail storm passed over western
New York on the 3d instant, doing
great damage to the crops and to the
property in the villages. The Roches.
ter Advertiser says that for the space
of three-fourths of an hour the whole
firmament was illuminated by the most
vivid lightning, succeeded by constaat
peals of thunder. Six houses and one
church were struck and more or less
injured in Rochester ; and many per
sons were knocked down and severely
stoned in various parts of the country.
The tower of St. John's church, at
Buffalo, was struck and much shatter
ed. The Buffalo Commercial says:
The fluid appeared to come down in a
broad sheet of flame, enveloping nearly
the whole church, and one gentleman,
who beheld it from his window, saw
balls of fire which lingered some seconds
upon the roof. The choir of the church
were rehearsing at the time, but sustain
ed no other injury than a severe shock &
something of a fright, as the fluid pasied
off on the outside. We understand that
two or three persons in the vicinity of
the church were prostrated by the con
Pratt of Boston, invented a new plan
of coupling together collars, metals,
hoops and bans. By his iscovery,
sheets of metal are joined, to any length,
without the use of rivet. Peculiar slits
are made in each end of the collar rib
bon or the band of the hoop, or in the
sheets of metal, which enable one
sheet or band to dovtail into the other
—when a blow from a hammer, joins
them as effectually as by melting.—
Hoops can thus, be' dove-tailed much
faster and at less expense than by the
old method.—P/ifia. News,
Death of Gen. Gaines.
Major General Gaines, of the U. S. hirny,
died at New Orleans last week, of the Cholera.

DLETON GniNes, , of the United States
Artny, a venerable and gallant officer,
whose name is associated with some of
the most brilliant events of American
tnilitark history. . _ .
General Gaines was, in fact one of the
oldest as well as one of the most merit
toriOus officers of the United states ar
my, Which he entered in January, 1799,
.as a Lieutenant of Infantry, and in
which he served, therefore, somewhat
more than half a century. Assigned, nt
the very bufset of his career, to the se
vere and perilous duties of the wild
South‘i)es'fe,rn frontier, Captain Gaines
first distinguished himself by the arrest
of AAR6N Buten, and; in consequence,
the entire defeat of all the ambitious

Infantry, covering the retreat of the

compelled it to retire. For his conduct
in this battle, he Was made a Brigadier
General; an honor soon followed up by
the higher appointment of Breiet Major

Fort Erie, in August, 1814. Twenty

General Gains died in New Orleans
on Wednesday, the Gth, and, it appears,
like Gen. Worth, his old brother•in•arms
of the Niagara frontier, he died of chol
era. Both of them passed though the
perils of battle—of many battles, fierce
and deadly—not, indeed, unharmed; for
Gen. Gaines was wounded by a I ragment
of a bomb-shell at Fort Erie, and by an
Indian bullet in Florida; to fall at length

covert' to be on fire in New York, the
other day. It was done by a looking
glass maker named Danon, who was
insane.— When alone, he stripped his
person until perfectly nude, and var
nished his body.--He then took his cloth
ing,. trunk ; and a quantity of picture
frames, and piled them up in one corner
of the room, seting fire to the pile. At
soon as it began to burn, lie threw him
self upon the burning pile, and in an
instant his whole person was enveloped
in flames. He then rushed to the win
dow, and kicking out the sash, climed
to the roof, the varnish on his body still
burning. He was discovered,. but not un
til he was so badly burned that life was , .
despaired of.
Temperance Davis.
In the report of the recent anniversary
of the American Temperance Union we
find some interesting reading. The
speeches sketched indicate much zeal
and eloquence. The remarks of Rev.
Dr. POOR, missionary to Ceylon, strike
us as worthy of attention. By way of
rendering the progress of the Temper
ance reformation more cer tail] and rapid
he set forth and advocated four distinct
points, viz : let, We must base this en
terprize on the great doctine of Apos
tolical expendiency, which will not eat
meat while the world stand, lest a broth
eh be made to sin. 2. We must reach
the family organization, and make each
family a Temperance society. 3. We
must make the Ministry the connecting
link between the families to carry out
the work, and 4. We must carry out
reform in ear high places, the White
House, &c., for, said the Doctor, L am
convinced that this evil has its main
support from high places and not from
low places. A better basis than this,
we apprehend, cannot be devised.--Let
it, or something like it, be adopted, and
it will not be long ere we shall witness
results of a gratifying and encouraging
WHO WANTS A Wiral—An exchange
paper gives an account of a transaction
by a young lady by the name of Hotalen,
living a mile east of Hainesville, (N.J.)
which we consider a little ahead of any
thing in that line which has transpired
for a long time. It seems Miss H., be
ing desirous that her father should
leave so retired a spot and live upon the
turnpike, removed the furniture out of
the house in which they resided, and
deliberately set it on fire. It burnt to
the ground, as no one was near it except
Mies Hotalen. The fire spread to the
fences and the contiguous forest, doing
much damage. The young lady is of
perfectly sound mind, and if any "nice
young man" about these parts wants a
wife with considerable decision of char
acter, whom he would like to "show off"
in the world, it might be advisable for
him to call on the fair incendiary—
though he might get his fingers burnt.—

0 7 -A HEALTHY TOWN.—The Dover
(N. H.) Enquirer says there has not
been a death in that town since the 10th
of April, a period of more than four
weeks, which is remarable for a town
having ten thousand inhabitants.

The Locusts are making their tilipear

of this State. The ground in Woods,
orchards, and gardens, is preforated
with countless holes, from which they
have emerged to the light of day, and
the trees, fences, &c. nre covered With
the skins which they hale shed: By
el . :mining the tree's, they are found in
immense numbers, about half the size
a full grown locust, and very active.
They will cause great destruction to
vegetation. It is now seventeen' years
since they appeared in such vast nuni
hers in Western Pennsylvania, and this
is what is called "locust year." They
are certainly a singular insect, and it is
most surprising how they contrive to

Alligator Fight.
Among the un'welconie incidents at
tendant upon the crevasse nt New Or
leafrs hot the least disagreeable has been'
the visits made by alligators to the vi:
cinity of the breach. The workmen'
cannot of course proceed with their Is;
hors With any degree of calmness, while
under the fear of losing a leg at a sin ,
gle snap of an alligator's jaws, and there
have been fights of a furious character.
Some nights since a huge specimen
sumo 15 feet long, got under the floor of
a hut, where a uninber of negroes were
sleeping, and after tossing up the floor,
gave battle. Two dogs flew at him and
were crushed instantly, and blows from
axes were showered upon him with no
effect. The conflict looked serious
against the negroes, when one of them
fortunately thrust a lighted brand down
the monster's throat which killed him.

on one occasion, was desirous of re

Irish beggar by the present of a six

Huntingdon, Pennsylvania.
The undersigned announces to his former pa
trons and the friends of sound Education gener
ally, that he is about to establish, in the new
Huntingdon Academy" building, a permanent
PRIVATE SCHOOL for young persons and
children of both sexes.
The course of instruction will comprise all
the branches usually taught in the best English
Academies, and will be well suited to prepare
pupils for the ordinary avocations of life, and
the more important and responsible duties' of
good citizens.
The internal management of the school will•
be with the Teacher; but he will be assisted by
the general supervision of a Board of nine gen
tlemen, justly esteemed for their private worth,
public spirit, and correct and comprehensive
educational views. With this important aid,
and sustained by the approbation and kind en
couragement of many of the best and purest
minds in this community, the undersigneu feels
confident that he will be able to introdute with
ease, and maintain without difficulty, such Reg,
ulutione as will give to the Institution, n high
MORAL as well as intellectual character ;—a
character that will secure the confidence and
respect of all good men.
The buildini, is a new three story brick struc
ture delightfully situated on the high ground
back of town, and affording a commanding view
of the valley of Huntingdon and its agreeable
mountain scenery. The school room is large
and well ventillated; and the chambers are so
arranged as to accommodate comfortably sev
eral boarders, who will be taken on reasom.ble
terms, and treated with all the faithfulness that
parental solicitude can desire or impose. The
number of pupils will be comparatively limited,
and the sexes always kept separate except
when in the recitation room. The school year
will be divided into four Sessions of eleven
weeks each with suitable vacations; the first
session commencing, this year, in July or Au
gust; but hereafter not until the first of Sep
classes $3.00. Ggograph3, with the use of
