EVENING STAR. THE COMET OF 1S32. IIqjI THE fBEXCII OF BEIA50KK* ?m Utwren against ua oil sends out a Comet! \Vs never can ssospe Us bery tail? I feel the earth already crumbling from it: The Observatory'? compass soon shall fail. Good-bye the guests, when rolls aws> their table : How few of these have got a quantum ?wjf ' Fly to confess, sad sinners, while you're able: Let us have done ; the world is old enough ! Ah, yes : poor orb, go mixing up and jombling. In topsy-turvy style, your nights aud days. And like a kite, with broke string, go tumbling. And sinking torn, and turning sink always. Spin through all space that has no paths or periods. Jostle a sun, and smash yourself to snuff. Or say you quench it?there are others?myriads ' Let us have done; the world is old enough ! Are we not tired of base Ambition's bubbles? Of titled fools. Kran J nicknames, stars and strings Abuses, errors, rapines, wars, and troubles Nations of lackeys and their lackey kings And tired of ail onr plaster gods so brittle?' Tired of that promised future so far off ? For all such things the theatre's too little; Let us have done; the world is old enough ! The young folk say to me: Tho world keeps moving: Each files away in silence at hi* chain: The Press shines out, and Gas-light?so improving ! And Steam power makes a railroad of the main. \> ait twenty >ears. good man. the egg is hatching Now in the sun ; we'li have the frurt thereof; ?My Inends' I've spent my thirty years in watch Let us^iave done : the world is old enough ! Not thus I spoke when life was in its hey day. And my heart heat with mingled joy and love. ' ' tt,en said, follow. bright and steady. Thy Itappv pathway, traced in light al>ove. But now I m old?am also scorned by beauty; My songs are sung?niy voice can only cough : So come along, wild Comet?do > our duty ! Let us have -Jono; the world isold enough ! *Ailusion to the Belgians. A Cargo of Irish Girl*.?The city of .Mo bile, Capt Marshall. sailed from Liverpool for the port of New York on the 2>th nit., freighted with over passengers. Among these are a yi,un? women. and 14 men. members of 133 ditl.-ren' families, the expenses of whose Immigration are defrayed bv public subscription from nearl* four thousand persons, the majority of whom are laborers and servant girls, to a fund entitled the "Irish Pioneer Emigration Fund." rhe object of the Institution of this fund is to raise the wages and otherwise better the condition of poor families in the poorest districts of Ire land. by the assisted emigration to th<? United States or Canada of one memlier of each family, specially selected on account of good charac ter and Industrious habits, in th > expectation that the persons so nss:*ted will not onlv better their own condition, but will, according to the usual gene rous gractj, e of Irish emigrants, send for or other wise greauy help the rest of the family. The number of the persons who have within the last eight years been thus assisted to emigrate from Ireland to this country amounts to upward of 4U0. Twj hundred and sixty-two of these persons are not yet twelve months in this country; the others have alreadv remitted to their relatives in Ire land upward of S6.000. and have themselves paid the passage of more than a hundred additional persons. The party now expected have l?een se lected by Mr. Foste'r, nftrr a careful personal in quiry :?s to character, and are each furnished with a cert ticate. Nearly the whole of the girls, whose average age is ?*>, and who may fitly be described a* the cream of the female peasantry of the County Louth, have l?een hitherto in farm service in the receipt of wages, varying from six to eighteen dollars a year and their boaid, or from ten to twelve cents a day without board The men were also hi farm service, at w."?ges va rying from f2j to S33 a year and ln>ard. or 25 cts. a day without boaid. Many of these persons will go to their friends in various parts ofth?* I'nited ?tates and Canada. Of the rest about 25 will be forwarded to Canandaigua, X V ; lu to Detroit ' ?25 to Chicago, and 45 to J^nesville. Wis. Mr F arrived In New York on the 10th ilist. lie pro ceed* to Canandaigua and other places mention ed ; after visiting which h?* expects to return here in time to meet the passengers. Crop Prospects.?The Cincinnati Price Cur rent of June 3 reports the prospects of the crop as geneiplly favorable. There is. of course, (be usual amount of croaking, and for this there is doubtless some cause, but in most case* ttatg row - lng crops look flue Owing to the favorable i weather that p.< vails, vegetation is progressing very rapidly, thus making up for lost time Wheat, barley nad grass are now almost astir ward as usual at this season, and corn is making rapid strides forward, and with a continuance ?f the present weather, it too will be up to time in a feet wreeks. Experienced fruit growers inform us that the prospect for a fruit crop was never more favorable than at this time. The Chicago Journal of the^th instant confirms the above statement of the flattering state of the crops in the West. Never before, says the Jour nal. has there lieen no much land in cultivation, and never before have the crops at this season promised so well. The prospect now is that the West will exceed the product of anv former year very largely. Masifrsto ??r Sa mta Ansa ?Santa Anna, the ex-Dictator of Alcxica. is evidently engaged in an attempt to get up another revolution iri that re Cblic. From his present retjeat in Carthagena has issued a manifesto for private circulation among his adherents, partizansand revolutionists generally, in Mexico, Cuba und elsewhere, de- 1 nounclng the piesent government of Coinonfort, the new constitution, the laws atlecting the prop erty and privileges of toe clerev. Ac . and an nouncing tha' there must be another sanguinary revolution, even though half of the territory of the republic should have to be sold to supply the sinews of war. CJ~ In Hartford, Ct., the Common Council have just voted to allow the Mayor $ti00 annually besides "the honors.'* D" Mr. Anthony Beam was kiilcd at Pleasant Valley, N J , a f.-w days ago, by a church wall falling upon him. lU~ A Kjt gold piece was paid bv a clerk in th?? Philadelphia post otfice, the other day, in mistake for a new cent. II-/" Capt. A P. Howe, L". S A . Is shortly to be tried by Court Martial at Old Point Comfort. Va., for misdemeanor.
