[Conmpoml^nce of the Herald.] Dublin, Ireland, April 2, 1812. The PtJiti' d Hori:mi]nf Orcut Britain.?Corn I^aic Question.?'I'he Agricultural and Social System.? 7he Lditaied Interest mul its Bearings and Connection*.?Pro*pe< t of Emigration. To James Gordon Bennett, Esq.? As you appear to feel sortie interest in what concerns us mortals at this side of the world, 1 am pleased to think, that the facilities of intercourse which now subsists between the two countries, will allow me to frequently address you, and with that regularity of communication, which nuiy in [fart atone tor any unintentional deficiency or neglect upon my part, as to the extent, or measure of information 1 may at any one time send you. A gloom has lately overcast our political horizon at this side of the channel?the change of tory rule having given back to us our former task masters, and restored to us the partiul blessings of un Orange ascendency. Though this is un evil of some belief umong us. yet 1 very much question if the burthen we endure, has not been fully equalled by the reign ot terror, the political and social proscription to which every niun dissenting from whig precepts, whig duplicity, and the still wild and theoretical notions, which has distinguished British whig policy ol later days, to make the sober-thinking?indeed every man who has a stake or any thing to lose in this country, to hail the change even such as it is, as a special God-send?a generous interposition of Providence in our behalf. All minds, as you may well believe, in this part of the empire, urc at this moment engrossed in the absorbing corn law question now before Parliament: I sjH'Culut*itig on its probable consequences, for pood, or for evil to this country, and 011 which some diversity of opinion nevertheless exirts: the agriculturists being reasonably apprehensive of losing a monopoly which they have long enjoyed of the English markets, whilst the masses led on by the disjointed fragments of the ultra liberal party, headed by Mr. Ihiniel O'Connell, are loud 111 their demands for cheap bread, cheap provisions, without taking into account the difficulties, which such change must entail upon themselves, in the immediate curtailment of the means, and one only source from which their own pecuniary supplies must proceed. We have but one leading interest in this country, the agricultural, upon which every other of a minor kind depends for its support. Clog the wheels of its machinery, dry up or lessen its resources, and an immediate disarrangement of our entire social system is the result. 'Tie no use to ?ay that landlords, and landed proprietors must take warning, and before the pressure can reach them from without, contract and reduce their expenditures to the character, und altered position of the times. They cannot do so Oppressed with difficulties, and in debt themselves, they have scarcely a discretionary power in the matter, and with very few exceptions, are unable to follow the suggestions, which prudence and a proper forecast would otherwise dictate. It has heretofore been the fashion to decry this body of men?to represent them as hard headed? sellish and exacting towards their tenantry. Such is not tbe case ; 1 have had some experience in such matters; 1 know the subject welL aud can with truth aver, that no where do you find, with fewer exceptions, eitheir in your own favored land, in England, or elsewhere, more singleness of heart, more forbearance, or greater indulgence, than is shown by the landlords or landed proprietary of Ireland to their tenantry, and to whom they have alreudy reduced their rents, and with them their own expenditures, to the lowest possible limit that will enable them to pay up the annual pecuniary de- I mantis upon their estates, and allow themselves to live. This country is as yet far behind the Present age, in its tillage or culture of the soil and 1 regret to think, that these indulgences instead of operating as a stimulus to increased industry and exertion on the part of the tenant, have Very frequently had a contrary effect, and in most instances hits rather operated as a bonus to idleness, and an increased improvidence in our |?eoplc, that has always been distinguished as of their national characteristics. Any eneck which the present bill may give to home agriculture will be severely felt in this part of the empire by all classes. A panic in anticipation of the probable consequences lias already seized upon the farming population of many of the southern districts of the country, where I nave lately visited. An immediate and general demand of a reduction of forty t?er cent upon the present rents, is to be of the first consequences of a diminution of the price, or value of agricultural produce, by the more general introduction of foreign grain into British consumption, to be enforced, in the event of a refusal, by the general non-payment of any rentswhutsocyer, and the establishing of a reign of blood, and mignight terror, throughout all parts of the country, with a view of deterring landlords from the due enforcement of their rights, or the recovery of their lands into their possession by legal process or otherwise. Hut will the landlords submit to these exactions, however called for by the exigencies of Ihe times T Certainly not, except on sueh estates as may be unincumbered with debt, or other charges and that the proprietor may make such disposition thereof as he nlease. Rut Hourly two-thirds ol the landed uroneriv of Ireland isnluced under very different circumstances; the landlords paying nearly two-thirds of their annual rental, in interest on money borrowed? the amount of premium on life insurances, as a security to the lender, (for estates in this country are generally entailed) in setting out their children in the world, or perhaps to feed past extravagance. To assent, therefore, even under positive ^compulsion to the reduction of forty, or even thirty per cent upon the present rents, whilst obliged to meet the last shilling of their own previous engagements, would be to reduee themselves, not merely to comparative want, hut to positive beggary ana starvation; for habituated to a life of idleness, they cannot work, much less in n market which there is every prosjiect will be glutted, by an overstock of the poor man's capital-?manuel labor. The landlords then will strive to the utmost to avert these difficulties from their own doors?a deadly strife will commence between them and the present occupiers, who, be assured will make common cause, and offer up many a human sacrifice, before made to part with their present all, or quit the possession of the land, wliicn is the only stay between them and destitution. Hut I s|>eak hy|K)thrtieally and under an assumption, that the present corn bill will have the effect of dej?rcciating the value of agricultural produce in this country to the standard that is generally supposed will be the case. I have however my own misgiving on this point, and rather Itelieve that the intended new mode of striking the averages, the adding so many other new towns to the former list from where such averages are to be taken, will prevent that species of gambling which hitherto enabled a few corn dealing monopolists to raise the markets on to-day and depress tnetn on to-morrow, as it may suit their purjaisc, and thus permit them to introduce foreign corn into the British market whenever it might answer their purpose, at a duty scarcely more than nominal. You will |H)ssibly enquire, if that the general opi- j nion of the country anticipates the result that I now r^ieak of, and that the sacrifice jof every Irish interest will be the inevitable consequence of the passing of the present bill, why it is that the public voice , has not more generally declared itself on a subject of | such importance to the nationul welfare! I will tell you. Because the expression of public opinion, particularly in the south, except it runs in one beaten and sickly channel, according to the will of Mr. O'Connel, and the few remaining dupes of uny character, or property by whom he is still supported, apart from the Catholic priesthood, and the. masses under their control, is altogether suppressed and unknown among us. No individual in this ill-fated country dare venture to record their sentiments, if opposed to the declared notions of these men, or attempt to rally any portion of his fellow-countrymen to proclaim their dissent or approbation of anv public measure'wanting their sanction or approval, w11h out his motives being impugned, himself abused and held up to public scorn, ann denounced as a traitor through every highway and byway of the country. Few men, believe me, wish to eourljthis odium, or incur the risque which it would inevitably bring with it among an inflamahle andjeasily excited population such as ihe Irish, who, iT their passions are successfully appealed to, seldom stop to enquire the right or wrOflC "f hmv political nueetton, <>r progressed measure of imperial legislation by which their future at* to be governed. Tib by mich mean* that the election" of this country on the side of liberalism are mostly {carried on, reason and common een>w being generally compelled to give way to the influence of terror?the hurrah of the lower classes m a necessary part of the excitement [ERA which distinguishes the exercise of the elective franchise amongst tin, whilst every new election requires some new stimulant to arouse the masses to any vigorous or determined ei'ort in carrying out their ends?frequently the sordid and selfish purposes of our present race of politicians, those who pur rjxeUrnct, call themselves tin; leaders of the [>. <.>nle. Cheapbread?cheap provisions, and low rents, nan been the rallying cry and war-whoop of this party at the last general election, re-echoed through every hamlet und village of the country, without considering that our resources are purely agricultural, and of our being unable to adopt auy change that may in the least interfere with its protection or future advancement. The evil, however, is now commended to their own Iijis?of the very men. whose acta and fierce denunciations have betrayed this portion of the Irish people into an apnnrent acquiescence of the measure of the British Ministers, whilst their own mouths are sealed against remonstrance, though they art; to a man aw are of the suiI cid'.tl consequences to this country of the verv change which they have themselves, for purely selfish enas, become instrumental in forcing iq>nu the adoption of the present government. There is no doubt but that litis changed position of the agricultural population of Ireland, should the apprehended consequences of the present bill be ever realized, will give an increased stimulus to emigration from this country; and that the coming season, but more especially the season of 1843, will see many of our most comfortable and industrious farmers quitting their former homesteads for your side of the world. Should they make N'ew York their first landing, it is to he ho|)cd that the antipathies of some of your native friends will, before this, have underfrnn^ flumorn nnJ thiil tht* f< Vufivn A morioo.> Party," of your city, ho remarkable hereloifore in their virulence and opposition to the"* * low Irish," (furnish the precedent adjunct in your usual mode of designation.) will encourage some kindlier disposition toward a class of men who seek your shore as a better field for their industry and capital, and who, instead of becoming a burthen u|H>n your bounty, areable and anxious to work out their own support whileh they add to your wealth and future resources.

In my last I informed you that ihere had been quite an excitement raised at the Young Men's Association, created by some would be dictators, about the " Herald,"?I informed you that a meeting was to be held to settle the question, whether the Herald should be kept on file?the meeting was held, and numerously attended. After much debate and speech making by these very moral people, it was proposed to put the question?" Shall we keep the New York Herald on file]"?but which resulted in an almost unanimous vote to adjourn sine die. It was curious to listen to the speech of one person, the superintendant of a female seminary here. He declared he had never read it (the Herald,) and further, that he would not?said that he would not admit gentlemen to visit the ladies of his school who were the readers of it?reason, the immorality of the Herald ?yet he had never read it?consistency.

Husiness continues to improve, and both steamboats and other craft daily arrive, with full cargoes of freight, which awaits here for the want of boats to be transported to market. This defect will be remedied as soon as boats begin to arrive from Albuny. The canal front this to Hlnck Hock is yet undergoing repairs and will not be ready for boats for two weeks to come; the boats in the meantime are towed by a small steam-boat down the river and enter the canal at Hlack Hock. The steamboatsonthe lake have all been repaired, re-painted and re-decorated, and I presume to say that the world contains no better. The Great Western, a boat of about 800 tons, leaves to-morrow for Chicago. She can compare with any thing I ever saw, both for splendor and the comfort of her accommodations, her cabins being all on deck, leaves room for freight, to the amount of 4000 barrels bulk. She continues under the command of (."apt. A. Walker, the former popular and gentlemanly commander. There are many other splendid boats. Oliver Lee, Esq., President of the Hank of Silver Creek has established an office here, and with him the collector of canal tolls is directed by the Comptroller to deposit. Mr. Lee is, 1 understand, making arrangements with eastern capitalists to increase the capital of the Silver ("reek Hank and remove the same to this city?we are at present without u bank. The theatre opens next Monday; Mr. Hire, the manager, informs me that he has engaged a strong company, and will produce among his first novelties " London Assurance," Erie.

The Clay party here are, in connection with their compatriot** in the city of New York, making the moat atrenuouaexcrtiona for a commencement of the next Presidential campaign. A Clay ('luh has been formed, and a purse has been or is to be raised for the establishment of a new daily paper, to be devoted exclusively to the interests of "Harry of the West." It would appear from this that the State Barber does not possess the entire confidence of the Clay party. It was proposed at one time to purchase the old federal Daily Advertiser;',but the idea has been given tip, I believe, and very correctly so, as it would be a most Herculean taw to resuscitate so superannuated a concern as the "old Daily." But now* vcrrons. Business continues very dull?indeed there has never been known so dull a season for many years. The travelling, however, continues unabated, and the boats are daily thronged. While on this point, I would remark, from e*|?erienee, that a more safe, commodious, and admirably arranged boat than the I Swallow, floats not on the Hudson. Her gentlemanly commander, Capt. M'Lean, h;is won largely on the esteem and regard of the travelling public in this and former years, as have all of her other officers, Mr. Dyer, the steward, in particular. The Amphitheatre is to close on Saturday, the equestrian troupe starting on their usual summer travel, which will leave this city almost without a place of amusement. Cannot you send us up a theatrical, or rather vaudeville corps for the suntrnf.r fjf'imon. The Delavan and Snrague controversy about " those papers," which kicked up so great dust a short time since, has rested at last. The last shot was in the shape of a bitter scorching review of the whole subject, by L. M. Sargeanl, Esq.. of Boston. He was most particularly severe on Judge Spencer. These controversies between Christians are certainly in very bud taste. Cavk Uia*im;ak. Baltimore. [C<? i.pondcnce of llie H< raid.] Bai.timohk, A|?ril28. 1812. St ax Wit ion of Butiwu?

Dorr, Parmenter & Co. the rlcte of the revolutionists, and the grand focus of the immense circle, work hard to keep up the excitement to the end of the humbug, which is to come off on Tuesday next.

And such a band ! 1 would not libel the name and memory of Jack Cade; and, therefore, will not compare the leaders and the led to that celebrated personage and his motley host. History, it is believed, does not charge honest Jack with forging notes, nor stealing leatlmr, and whatever may have been his other faults, he stood (ire, and took his chance with his followers. A part of the heroes of this revolution, having a disrelish for the smell of gunpowder, and a peculiar horror of stone walls and hempen cords, have (nicked out within n few ueelis met The remaining members of the staff, more obstinate, though not a whit more courageous, will follow suit, and clear from the field the moment the enemy appears in sight. If your Tammany Gothamitea think it worth while to enjoy a little sport, it would not be a bad notion for them to take a trip to this place to witness the imposing ceremonies, and participate in the doings of their brother patriots of Rhode Island. The celebrated orator, l'annenter, will, no doubt, very cordially receive his friends \ nnderpoel und Purdy, and present them to his espectaj friend, the Governor elect, under the people's constitution jmr rrrrll?nrc It would be very edifying to the ignorant Rhode Islanders, to hear a discussion amongst these learned wiseacres, with the addition of a steam doctor, ot the important sublets of criminal jurisprudence, the means of detecting flaws in indictments, ana the merits of root beer, lobelia, cayenne, and steam The editor of the New Etu would be a very important addition, as he would be able to inform the public how many forgeries it requires a man should perpetrate to give him a character above reproach.? Viae New lira on the character of Parmenter The meeting of the sympathisers in New York has not raised the steam much in this community A few of the most simple among the insurgents, it is true, plum'* themselves some upon it; but the sensible portion have little faith in the spouting and re solves of the Bucktails, who, it is'well-known, "re. solve and re-resolve, and die the same."
