A CONTRAST.—A more striking and melancholy picture cannot be presented to the mind, than the extreme and squallid poverty of a large proportion of the children of Erin's Isle, in contrast with the beautiful scenery and the abundant natural resources with which they are surrounded. The remarks below upon this point are from a lecture, entitled the "Tyrant and his Famine," lately delivered by Bishop Hughes, in the New York Tabernacle. "Ireland, is not larger in its territorial extent than about two-thirds of the State of New York, and is an island on the Western borders of Europe. Its bold coast is indented by numerous capacious bays and safe harbors. For its size it has many large and navigable rivers, and it is said that no part of the island is more than fifty miles distant from tide-water. The climate is salubrious, although humid with the healthy vapors o fthe Atlantic. Its hills, like its history, nre canopied for the most part by cloud. Its sunshine is more rare; but for that v...

Thoughts in the Burying Ground at Constantinople. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 1 April 1847

Thoughts in the Burying Ground at Constantinople. The following passage, suggested by the burying ground of Constantinople, is taken from "Anastasius, a book on which the Rev. Sidney Smith, who was not wont to be prodigal of his encomiums, has bestowed the following high praise. "There are few books in the English language which contain passnges of greater power, feeling and eloquence, than this novel—which delineate frailty and vice with more energy and acuteness, or describe historical scenes with such bold imagery and such glowing language." "There," said I to myself, "lie, scarce one foot beneath the surface of a soil, swelling, and ready on every point to burst with its festering contents, more than half the generations whom death has contiued for near four ceniuries to mow down in this capital of the Turkish Empire. There lie, side by side, on the same level, in cells the size of their bodies, and only distinguished by a marble tablet somewhat longer or deeper—somwhat rounder ...

THE FAMINE IN SCOTLAND.—The latest accounts from Scotland report the most calamitous stute of things, arising from the want of food. The Free Church of Scotland have appointed a committee to inquire into the causes of destitution in tbe Highlands, and other thinly sullied parts, who say in their report:— "Nothing can be more obvious to reflection than the nature of this distress among our countrymen in the Highlands and Islands. Their food has been destroyed, and means for purchasing other food they have not. At this date, there must be nearly two hundred thousand of our countrymen actually destitute of food; and of the other half multiudes are daily falling into the same distressing and fearful state; the remaining produce of their toil expending and expended; while, ere the month of May next, they can but anticipate that the same condition will be universal, with exceptions (numerically) to be scarcely taken into account.

IMPORTANT RUMOR! —A letter from the correspondent of the New York Commercial writes from Washington, that a letter has been received there "from Mr. Campbell, consul at Havana, siiyitig that the Mexicans gave up the Castle of San Juan, without a word or blow! The letter is addressed to the Secretary, and "comes in due course of his despatches. There in no doubt that the letter has been received. As to its truth it is problematical. It is almost too good to be true."

SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 1 April 1847

SUMMARY. A showery day is damp, but the refusal of a young lady is a damper. In England, the Yankees are ridiculed with the name of Pumpkins. An English lady, on a tour through the northern part of this country, passing a field of pumpkins, anxiously inquired what they were. Her companion replied that they were pumpkin*. "Barbarous wretches! " exclaimed the lady; mistaking the name of the fruit for bumpkins, "to bury their natives with their heads out of the ground !" According astronomers, the tail of the new comet swept over the earth on Monday, as it whirled off into the vast regions of spiae, This will account, perhaps, for the unusual chilliness of the atmosphere at this season. The whole amount of specie brought by the Ilibernia, which has been entered at the Custom House, is $1,525,903. The Baltimore and Philadelphia telegraph line was broken and washed away by the late storm to the extent of thirty miles! The Pittsburgh line was broken in several places. Miss Fuller—correspo...
