I* CONDItION OF IRELAND 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, '..t • , 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 cussion. USEFUL INVENTION. --Mr. Samuel 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. The Norfh Americgn thus speaks of himi siA telegraphie despatch this morning con , :eys the meiancholy inteffi'gene, of t'he death of Alitjar General EnmuivnPisrl• 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 plans J:iy which the Union Was threaten ed with dtsmemberment The next theatre on whialr he display ed his gallantry *as at Chrysler's Field in 1813, where, as Colonel of the 25th Infantry, covering the retreat of the AtneriCan army to their boats, lie repul sed several abarges of n victorious Brit ish regfment—the 89th—rind, finally 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 General, won by the glorious defence of Fort Erie, in August, 1814. Twenty two years afterwards, in Februaty, 1836, he fought his last battle on the %% altia coochie, in Florida, with the Seminole Indians. 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 full of years and honors, before the un• seen and unlaurrelled shaft of the pes tilence that walketh in darkness. STRANOE CASE OF INSANITY.--. 4 man set nng fire to himself.—A house was dis. 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 character. 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.— albany ..drgus. 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. Tat to TS. The Locusts are making their tilipear ance in vast numberiin the western part 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 Make their way to the surface of the earth from a considerable depth, in places where the ground is beaten very hard by constant treading. In the Mor ning there may be no appearance of them, and by noon the ground will be pierced in every direction, particularly under the . trees; and in short time af ter the insect throws off its undergrourid . robe, and spreads its wings for its flight of destruction. 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. A WILLING DEBTOR.—Sir Walter Scott on one occasion, was desirous of re warding the wit and importunity of an Irish beggar by the present of a six pence, but found he had not so small a coin in his purse. "Here my good fel low," said the baronet, "here is a shil ling; but mind you owe me sixpence." God bless your honor," exclained Pat, "may your honor live till I pay you!" The author of Ivanhoe was highly tickled a the valve reply.. TIIE MARKET'S, ruiLsnicrum rune The fo'reigit news received by the Cambria has caused firmness in the corn market, but in other articles it has had no effect. Flour is in' moderate demand for export, and 1500 barrels standard brands principally Western, sold for export ar $1 62i per barrel, at which price the market closes firm. For city consumption steady sales at $4 62A a 5 25. Rye Flour—A small sale at $2,87i. Cornmeal—We quote at $2;75 per bbl.

Whiskey—Sales in both hhds. and bbls. at 21 cents. 4ELECT SCHOOL, Huntingdon, Pennsylvania.
