Emigration. The Commissioners of Emigration are busily engaged upon their annual report to the Legislature. It will be one of the most interesting we have had l'or many years when completed.

How American Towns Grow. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 18 January 1873

How American Towns Grow. New Straitsville, Ohio, Dec. 23, 1872. To the Editor of Tlie Pilot. Dear Sir Thinking that perhaps a notice in The Pilot of this comparatively new place would not be uninteresting to your thousands ol readers of this, as well as of the Old Country beyond, we take this liberty of telling you where we are, who we are, and how we are getting along. New Straitsville is in Southern Perry County, and until within the last lew years was one of the most desolate, uninviting localities of the State. The countryis very hilly, the soil barren, and, with scarcely any passable wagon roads, it was for years an isolated and almost unknown country. About two years agon branch railroad from the Hacking Valley was built twelve miles up into the hills, and, at its terminus in New Straitsville, the coal mines were opened ou the Ist of .January, 1572. Five mines are now in active working order, and two more are being opened. Five j hundred men are employed, whose regular wages c...

The Globe says: “The return of Mr. Ronayne for Cork city, is an unmitigated evil. It was a manifest and unscrupulous surrender of the cause of loyalty by the Gladstone Government.” The Daily'yews says: “ The result of the Cork election will be taken as another proof of ...

If we had sufficient enterprise to develop our own natural resources we need not rely upon English or Scotch coals, and we would not he mulcted, as we are, in the exceptionally high prices we are paying for imported fuel. We are laboring under a grievance now that did not exist in the days when the Dean of St. Patrick’s levelled his piercing shafts against Imperial cupidity and oppression, lustead of send - ing our woollens across the Channel as we once did, we now send our cattle and vegetable produce. Ireland was not then, but now is, a feeding ground for England. And the consequence is that Irish produce sells cheaper in England than in Ireland. Potatoes, for instance, that should be had at this season of the year at an outside price of four shillings the lialf-qnarter, sold in the Tralee market on last Saturday for six shillings and sixpence.

The Atlantic Monthly and the Irish. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 18 January 1873

The Atlantic Monthly and the Irish. fflje filot. BOSTON, JANUARY 18. 1873. “ Let Ireland in America be faithful, be Catholic, be temperate, be industrious, lu* obedient to law.”— Key. Thomas N. Burke, o. l\ Having read an article on “ Politics ” in the Atlantic Monthly lor January, wo came to the conclusion that the editor of that magazine dined lately with the editor of Harper's Weekly, and that, very likely, Mr. Fronde dropped in after one of his lectures. We Judged thus from the fact that the article in the Atlantic Monthly has all the malignant spirit of Harper’s, without even its half-knowledge of what it speaks about; while it has all Mr. Froude’s dislike for the Irish, without even his learning or his vim. The article opens by saying that it is singular, in this period of statistics, maps, charts, etc., we have not a series of maps or tabieo of “International Affinities.” For instance, a map or series of statistics of the international or popular affinities of England during ...

The Death Sentence in New York. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 18 January 1873

The Death Sentence in New York. It may seem a dmadlul thing for men to receive with pleasure the news that a fel-low-being has been .sentenced 1 o death; but dreadful as it may be, such was the feeling of the community when the murderer of i’islc was sentenced last Monday. There is no doubt that the sentence was unexpected, though nearly every one admitted that it was deserved. Stokes was a rich man, with troops of wealthy friends; and the distrust of New York morality was so ingrained in the country that two weeks ago nobody would believe that such a man could be convicted in N. Y. courts. And the murderer lias been as much disappointed as the country. Since his committal, throughout his trial, his conduct has been marked by levity and recklessness. He believed with another late ■ murderer that "hanging was played out in New York.” But the unfortunate young man lias found that a New York jury can be impannelled that is above bribery; that a judge maybe seen on the bench who can onl...

Premature Mental Decay. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 18 January 1873

Premature Mental Decay. Reference to published bills of weekly i mortality will show that the average length j of human life on this continent is far be- j low that of Europe. The present age is es- ! sentially one of high pressure, involving ! competition before the child leaves off wearing petticoats, and so continued through school, college, and in the battle, of every day life. Within the past decade of our country’s history there has been a very large increase in the mortality from diseases of the brain, brought on by constant overwork. Paralysis, apoplexy, insanity, and other mental diseases, have increased to an alarming degree. The absence of old or even middle-aged men from our large cities is so striking that those least observing have noticed it. Quite true, men with gray hair, wrinkled brows, stooped shoulders, and of uncertain gait, are to be met with in every business nook and corner of our cities; but let us stop a moment and see how seldom sueli appearances are due t...

The Louisiana Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 18 January 1873

The Louisiana Trouble. The attitude ot parties in Louisiana today is a disgrace to the ■whole country, and also an injury—tor in politics as in physics, the sore of one member affects the whole body. There are two Legislatures now sitting in New Orleans, one supported by the United States authorities ami the negroes, and the other by the white citizens. The people of the city and State are on the brink of a physical fight for supremacy; the armories have been emptied and their contents distributed, mainly amongst the Kellogg or negro side. The injustice to the whites appears to be high-handed and indisputable. The elections passed off quietly and the results were announced and accepted , showing that the fusion -ticket—that is, the Greeley electoral ticket—had been elected, with Colonel McEnery for Governor. The Custom-house people, backed by the great negro vote, took second thought, however, and declared the election illegal, proclaiming the minority candidate, U.S. Senator Kellog...

OUR NEW YORK LETTER. New York, January 7,1873. Tlie Strong Life of the Nation Is almost always certain to furnish the weekly commentator with ample opportunity for the display of his wisdom. It is regrettable, oi course, that the young giant of action we call America has so many points in his career where the criticism must be a condemnation. lam not by any means one who loves forever the task of the carper or the sneerer. While truth and goodness and justice exist as pure Ideals for mankind, seen by the light of pure religion, there will ever be glorious examples of life and deed to admire and point out. 1 am led to this moralizing by the thought which so often has presented itself to me when in taking up the pen to commence my weekly letter to The Pilot.
