The potato famine in Ireland was now hen felt more severely than in that part of tin country where the following story is told aa true tale : In a small village in one of the most bar reu districts of the we?t of Ireland, then lived a very poor widow whose sole inheri tance from her husband were two hoalthi children, girls, of the respective ages of tlirei uu<] live, i'ainfullv ami by the utmost ell'or she had contrived to pass two years of liei sorrowful widowhood. l!ud and scanty food obtained only by labor too great for her del icate frame, had at last thrown her upon hei sick bed, and death, in pity, removed her ii a few days and without great suffering fron all her earthly troubles. The poverty of the whole parish was s, great that nothing could be done for the pooi orphans. All the neighbors, with the lit most desire to help, w ere too famine stricken aud heard their ow n children too often on in vain for bread, to assist others. "If the children could only be got to Kit burn"?a village some miles distant?sail one of the neighbors, after the poor motliei had been buried, "a brother of their fathei lives there, and he could not possibly refuse to take care of them." " ISut matters are as bad there as here,' replied another, "and I fear they will be n< better off there." "It eannot possibly be worse than here for nothing but starvation stares them in the face. If we send them to their relations, we have dene our duty. We cannot possibl) keep them here." All were nl last agreed upon this ; and as there was a earner w ho, on the next day, vvagoing near to Kilburn, tie was requested, a? an act of charity, to take the children witl him. The man readily consented, and tin neighbors felt satisfied that they had done all that could he required of them". The carrier, as agreed, came the next dav and took the two girls l izzie was seven now, and Mary live?in his cart with him, The timid children kept very quiet aud close together, and the carrier hardly looked al them. Towards noon they reached the spot where the cart would turn oil. The man lifted them out, showed them the road to the left, and bade them go straight forward, ami if they diil not turn front the highroad tliev would, in about two bonis, come to the place. lie then drove oil'. The children sobbed out, "good-bye," and looked after him a* long as thay could see the least speck of the cart, and then they both began to cry, Lizzie ceased her crying tirst; she tool, hold of bet little sister's hand, who had seated herself on the grass, and said; "Let up, Marv! we must not stay here, if we wish to get to Kilhurn. We cannot stop here on the road." "1 am so hiiii"i\," sobbed Mary; "we have hud nothing to eat all day." And again they both began to cry ; for Lizzie was eijuallv hungry. The poor children had gone to bed without food the night before; it was a long time since they had a full meal; the neighbors where they had stayed since the death of their mother, had not given them any breakfast, as the poor people had icallv themselves nothing to eat. It was now dinner time, but there wa* no dinner for them. "Come, Mary!" at last said Lizzie, " we must try to get to some house; we may perhaps get a little bread or a lew potatoes. If we stay here we shall starve ; no one will bring us anything to cat here." "Oh! if our mothei were but alive!" e\ctainted the little one, getting up with dilllcultv. The children were vciy weak, and could only drug thencelve- slowly along. Hand in hand tlu-y tottered on. r-everal times Marv declared "that she could go no further, and sat down on the highroad; and it vvn- with the greatest dilliculty that l.izzie ] er-iiaded her to get u]iagain and pursue their way. At last l.izzie fancied she saw a house, and poiuted toward the spot. "Now," sai.l Mary, "we shall soon get something to eat; we shall rind kind people there." It took them more than a ijuarlcr of an hour before they reached the farm-house, for such it proved to he. With hesitating steps they entered into the yard, tor they had never begged before in spite of their former ini?erv. Rut at this moment they could think of nothing else hut their terrible hunger. When a lew Steps from the holi-e they heaid the larmcs violently ?< ohliug one <>t hi- na n. 'then he went into the house, fiercely closed the dooi after him, so as to make the w indows rattle, < ontinuing his abuse all the time. The children, terrific laiiJ*with beating hearts, stood still at the door until the voice ceased. Then J.izzic opened the door, and l>oth children entered. The farmer sat in an arm-chair by the lire. "Well, what d? you want" he harshly; asked the children, who were too frightened to utter a word and to tell their errand. "Can't you apeak?'" he asked still more roughly. I.Iziie at last took courage, and -aid gently: "Oh, if ymi would he so good as to give um the least little bite to eat?a small piece of bread or a few potatoes." "1 thought so," ahouteil the farmer ; "I was sure you were nothing hut heggaia, although you do not seem to belong to this neighborhood.

It seem as if he wished to say. " Don't drive my guests away ! ' At that sight a great change came over t j man ; the spectacle before him acted like electric shot, and feelings, such as he h never had before, seemed to stir within hii The children hail risen, terrified, at the c; of the man, fearful of punishment tor havi eaten against his command. They sto with downcast eyes. At last, after sever minutes' silence, the farmer asked : " Are yon really so fearfully hungry th voir do not even despise the dog's food?" I Isut without waiting for an answer, | continued, j "Come in, then, you shall have soiuethii ! to eat, and as much as you like." j And then taking them by the haud lie 1< | them into the house, calling out to the se vant: j " Kiddy, get some hot bread and milk, ai I be quick, tor these children."

He began to ?uspect the truth, and askc hesitatingly, "What was your father's name "Martin Sullivan," replied Lizzie. "What -Martin?Martin Sullivan?"

With able and trusted Correspon lents in the leading capitals, ami wherever great changes are in progress, The Tribune aims, at whatever 1 cost, to lav before its readers the most prompt, complete, and popular presentment of these diverse and conflicting movements?thrcugh all of which, as it fondly trusts, the toiling masses are everywhere struggling up toward larger re cognition and a brighter future. At home the struggle for Freedom seeuis over. The last slave has long been a citizen . the last opposition, to emancipation, enfranchisement, eijual civil rights, has been formally abandoned. No party. North or South, longer disputes the result of the War for the Union, ail declare that | these results must never be undone; and, with a whole people thus united on the grand plat, form of All Right3 for All, whereto our bloody struggle, and the prolonged civil contests that j followed, have led us, the Republic closes the records of the bitter, hateful Past, and turns peacefully, hopefully, to the less alarming be' cause less vital problems of the Future. To whatever may elucidate the general discussion j or action on these, The Tribune gives amplest ! space and most impartial record. Whatever parties tnay propose, whatever political leaders may say. whatever officers may do, is fairly set down iu its columns, whether this news helps or binders its own views. Its readers have the right to an honest statement of the facts ; and this they always get. But as to its own political principles, Tut. Tribune is of course, hereafter as heretofore, the champion of K jual Rights, irrespective ot' j Race, Nativity, or Color. It stands inflexibly by the Amendments for the pertaanent security of those Rights, which have been solemnly in corporated by the People, in the Constitution of parties, it endeavors to treat them all with judicial fairness. It labor9 to purity the administration of Government, National, State, and Municipal, and whenever those in authority, whether in National, State, or Municipal affairs, take the lead in this work, it will therein give them its cordial support. But it can never be the servitor of any political party ; nor will it surrender or even waive its right to criticise and condemn what is wrong, and commend what is right iu the action of any parties or of any public men. Now, as always, Tiie Trisl-nk labors with all its heart for the promotion of the great ma terial interests of the country. 1 he progress of Invention and of Labor-Saving, the develop| ment of our resources, the preservation of our I Land for the Landless and its rapid subjugation to human wants, the utilization ot our vast underlying Ores, the extension of the facilities for bringing Producer and Consumer nearer tof gether?whatever tends to swell the runks, ini crease the knowledge and better the condition ' of those devoted to Productive Industry finds mention and encouragement in our columns. The Weeki y Tribi nk, now more than thirty i years old, has endeavored to keep up with the ! progress of the age in improvement and in en ! terprise. It devotes a large share of its columns to Agriculture as the most essential and 1 general of human pursuits. It employs the t ablest and most successful cultivators to set forth in brief, clear essays their practical views ; of the Parmer's work. It reports public disj cussions which elucidate that work : gathers ! from every source agricultural news, the reI ports of the latest experiments, the stories of I the latest successes and failures, and whatever | may tend at once to better Agriculture, and to j commend it as the tirst and most important of i progressive Arts, based on natural science, j Tiie VttEki.Y Tribune appeals also to Teach| era, Students, and persons of inquiring minds, j by the character of its Literary contents, which I ,' nf nil tli* w. rk* nrnrepdin. from the master minds of the Oh) or New WorlJ, with liberal extracts from those of especial interest.
