Willi true respect, I am, A-c. W. IlemeinbiJ.IrcInml. A wail is heard in Erin, A l oice across the deep ; Her daughters die.of famine, Her childien pine and weep. Her sons arc sad, confounded, Tney know not what to do, Tale terror stalks among ihcm, Dread horror strikes theni through ; Tor they cannot feed the lov'd ones Who cry to them for bread ; No raiment have they for lliem, No coffin for their dead. And the father seeks his labor, Both wearisome and slow ; Tor the plague-spot of famine Is hiking on his brow. He may return at even, And reach his collage-door ; Then die to pay the penance, Pur die sin of being poor. The tyrant's arm is round ihcm, The feel Ins sword and chain, Tho" he met ihcm not in battle. Nor saved them 'mid the slain ; Put Ids wily arts have hound them, Villi many a tighten'd band, Till he Hole away their bir'htight And rubied them of their land ; f-'o they became his va-ais, To live by suiTl-rance, where Their fathers' bones lie buried, And lhey fust breathed the air. O hear llie wail of Erin! Her sun is sinking low, And her diadem of glory Is faded on Iit brow. Give to her famished thousand A morsel of liiy bread j Give to her weeping mothers A gaimi.U for ll.cir dead. So they miy iive and bles thee, AuJ l'rovideuce bestow Rich treasures for thy camels.

I dine very often with the good oh! Cardinal and, I should add, with his cats ; for they always sit at his table, and are much the grav est oi the company.

He had jut left tho University of Palermo and was entering the army, v.'fien ho became acquainted with a young lady of great beauty ami merit, a Sicilian ol a family as illu-trious as Ids own. Living near each other, they were often together ; and, at an age like their," friend ship soon turns to love, lint his father, for what reaion I forget, refu-cd his consent to their union; till, alarmed at the declining health of his son, he promised to oppose it no longer, if, after a separation of three jours, they continued as much in love as ever, Relying on that proniic, lie said, 1 set out on a. long jouiney ; hut in my ab-encu tho iiMir.l arts were resorted to.

As a nation, we have adopted the theory that Gov ernment does not involve the matter ol Religion. On this theory our Constitution is based.

The advantage of practice and experience are great over inexperience, however correct and consum mate In theoiy an individual may ho. The practical politicians and statesmen of this Gov ernment, are from the South. In point of fact, the North, all their wealth. education, intellectual and moral worth, have waned in relative inlluenco. On Iheso hints, I political abolitionism takes its rise. Ileru it germinates and feeds its existence. Real worth is unassuming is modest and re tiring. This, I believe, is admitted as a general mixim. Whether so admitted or not, it is law in New England, Though some local furw.ird ! ncss may exist among New I!nglandcr at home, yet there generally, and always abroad, they ex I poet that their worth will bo discoveied and brought to notice by some body other than them ' selves.

Si tuated not exactly in tho North-east comer of the Union, but even mora North-east than that, on an absolute Noith-eastcrn projection from the otherwi-e naturally delineated Union, the infeli city of their lelative position in point of influence in the Government, is enh meed by tho lact that. in their latitude, an orator has not that control ling influence over his auditory, which pertains to tho orator in a more Southern clime. heading men easily lead the people at tho South, New England people nobody can lead ; they will lead themselves, and if possible their Repre-entatives in Congress : and that loo, in a line directly opposite to that in which their pro ferment in the State n itiirally lies. And strange as it may seem, these same people complain that j their statesmen are not prelerred in tho General Government. And upon this plea, agitation is now actually going forward at tho North, propo sing for its object an alteration in that particu lar of the C'on-titutioii which allows a represen tation of which the principle is population irres pective of siillrage, allowing that such rcpresen- lion is tho cause that dominion, under the Amer ican eagle, rests upon the shoulders of the South. Pardon me, Sir, while I again impose my po sitive, sincere, and mo-t deferential opinion that it was a wiso and patriote invitation, which you give to Southern politicians, to address in per son tho people of the North. They would ap preciate youiself, and your worthy compeer from tho North, the hetteraflerdjingso. Some cementing inlluenco to the Union would result therefrom. Doubtless there is lurking, unconsciously, iu tiio New Engl md mind, a di-position to thinli as he is, ngiinst an array that would alarm tho : for other peoplo in moral nutters. So abhor- most experienced? " Were 1 as mighty as 1 rent is the idea ol slavery to intelligent minds in am weak," said he, " my fears for von would nuke me as nothing, ll'it I will bo (here, Gianetta ; and may the Friend of the Friendless give me strength in that hour! Even now my heart fails mo ; hut, como what will, while 1 havu a loaf to share, you and your mother shall never want. 1 will beg through the woi Id for you," The day arrive, nnd the court assembles. The claim is rtated, and tho evidence given. And now the defence is called for but none is made ; not a syllable is uttered : and, after a piiiso and a consultation of somo minutes, the ! Northern climes, tint nothing but th m.ckos t snbmi-.-ion to tho whole ol God s revealed will, can save from error in this particular can s.uo " those who are without," from interfering be tween master and slave. "Tho meek will he guide in jiidgment.ai'.d the meek teach his way." And without this, they will teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words." Tho ten dencies of civilized mind ate all that way. To that lovo of liberty, and hatred of op pression, which characterizes Northern cli mes, the fallacy of supposing that slavery is , seems almost intin tive. lius maintained that a man h is a right even to shear a wolf. with a man who insists that lie will shear a woll, simply because ho Ins a right to do so, is to con cede that he has that right, but to try to convince In m tint it is inexpedient to exercise it. There is good moral authority for maintaining that all things which are lawful, are not all expedient. Congress has declared itst incompetency to discontinue Sabbath aails, the Constitution not having informed tint body, what day in the week that day is. It would bo' incongruous therefore in llicm, to attcmp tn inform the slaveholder res pecting his moral duties to his slaves, since it ins declared itself incapable of informing him which d ly in the seven that diy is, which his .Maker commands him to keep holy, in which l.e is not to wont nun-ell, nor to won; In-.-lave. It would be strange if tiie one matter could be foisted in, after the other ha-been excluded. The politics and politeness of she South are ever ready. Since the North affirms the sinful ness of slivery, the former with his courtesy ad mils the quc-Hon to be problematical, while with his politics lie allirms their right, under God, so to sin, if indeed it be a sin to hold slaves. The Constitution not including the power ol determining the moral character of action among the enumerated powers conferred b) that instrument, and as in their consciences they do not believe that it is for" the general welfare of the United States," that they should determine slavchi.lding either to be, or not to be a sin, they conclude th it the powers of sinning, in the mat ter of slavery, " are re-erved to the states respec tively, or to' tho people." it is difficult tn deal politically with such political ungodliness as this. And yet no le-s a task in imposed on the Northern members of Congress. The South think it bid policy, bad patriotism, and bid ininuers.on tho part of the North, to ask them to give up -liveholding, after llwy h ive, in the ino-t di-tinct, unoimocal, nnd solemn manner declared, tint tin- will terminite their slavehohling and their mortal existence simul-taneou-lv. They h ib.tn illy take other at their word, and think llut it b.-lungslo good manners, so Io d,i. Feeling I doubt nil, tint Iho attempt to carry out Northern moral views on tho flour of Con-gie.-s, was but "lading one's-self witli thick clav." von. sir. hit noon llie devico of coiiliout- tiug tho Northern constituency w ith these South ern politicians. Ilut, sir, the object which is proposed to be g lined by Sjilthern addre-ses before Northern audience-requires some delinitiou, Itdoes lut clearly appear what end a Southern politician is to propose to himself, by going to the North, to iddrcss tne people. mnm-'tiirpnt na ices.
