The New York Post Office.—lt has recent-! 0 «»•*«> «t» ligoi that L-aac V. Fowkr, the Post master of Ne* York city, is a defaulter to the. amouu. of $160,000. Mr. Fowler has been a leading Democratic politician, aud expended large stuns upon eleciions, particularly in 1856, to carry Pennsylvania for Buchanan. Araoug the Democratic politicians in New York there is some very tree talk. The frieuds of Douglas af firm that the tnn'ter has been pressed since the Charleston Convention more through spite than trom any desire to viudicate ihe people.

Tiie Irish Heqira fob 1860.—W- learn upon inquiry of tbe acting secretary of the Commis sioners of Einiir a i >n at Castle Ga d n, tbat 4 'the Irish Emigration this year to Amenoa—as com pared witu the two or three prece-itng \ears —will be very large. From the Barony Ems, county Mayo, in L eland, it is estimated that ol a population of about 20.000 inhabitants, uearly all will emigrate to this country. The distress is great throughout Ireland, and all who can pro cure the means, will undoubtedly leave." This accords with advices received through other sources, and the large immigration at the port of New York at the prebent time, tends to substantiate these views. Not less tiiau twenty eight ships, having on b-ard about 8,500 pa seitgers, arrived here during the last week in > -tly tr >m Liverpool, or from German \ orts. — The applications tor passage by the Galway steamers are represented to exceed the capacity of tbe ships to convey them.

The Japanese at Washington.—Their re ceptions of Congressmen, Cabinet officers, and other functionaries, are the most tedious cere monies tbey bave to endure. For two or more hours each day, seated quietly upon a sofa, the Ambassadors resign themselves to tbe assiduous attentions ot ihe hundreds of men and women who beset them. As tbe Princes are persons of taste and refinement, they natural y suffer a little mental aud physical prostration by these operations, and generally come out of tbem wilt ed, and with couutenances indicating vague thoughts in the direction ot "happy release." The diguity of these receptions is seldom in terfered with, exceptiug by tbe Japauese Puck, "Tommy." In bis wanderings, he sometimes penetrates the parlor where the Ambassadors sit in state, on which occasions nobility is for gotten, and public consideration is at ouce di verted from aged rank to youthful genius. It often becomes necessary to eliminate the little interpreter, to prevent serious interrup...

The First Wedding. A correspondent who witnessed the wedding! of Countess Bodisco in Washington last week, gives the following reminisoences of her first marriage: I remember the Countess when she was a school girl in Georgetown—the sweet and lovely Harriet Williams, the favorite queen of every May day. Her father, a worthy merchant of that ancient and respectable burgh, gave her every advantage of education ; but she was as simple, artless and unaffected as the daughter of an humble citizen could be. Her personal loveliness was something rich and rare, when the sixteenth summer shone on her bright eyes. Her form was a model for a sculptor, so delicate aud roundly shaped—a dream of beauty seldom realized on earth. The Count Bedisco first saw her among her school companions, and was at once conquered. He was old, but in excellent preservation, and when made up—as he always was whenever he appeared before, not only company, but his most intimate Iriends—he made a good figure in the mo...
