In a discussion of politics behind tbe scene# «t the Theatre Francais lately, tbe stale re mark wa-. made by some one present tbat France was a countiy dtmocratique.

The question before us is, how, under these new conditions, the Irish and the Ger mans in America increase relat vely to each other. It is undoubtedly an almost universal opinion throughout I be Eastern Slate*, an opinion, moteover, which extends in a con siderable degree over the entire country, that the Irish exhibit much the higher degree of fecundity. There may be persons whose op portunities have been such as to persuade them of the coutrary; there may be commu nities where the opposite view'prevails; but the general liefief is quite clearly what hu been expressed. It is easy to explain this belief. The Irish immigration was the first to reach us. The accounts so frequently repeate , in connec tion wi.h the Famine, of he prodigious in crease of this people, have combined with tje observations made by our own citizens in contrasting the increase in the families of these foreigners with the rate prevailing among the native population, to give this opinion almost the curie..ey and authenticity of a proveib. An opinion thus generally dif tused i not soon or easily displaced Irom the popular mind. The Germans came later; they went largely to other portions of the country, where the rate of increase ir. the native population was more rapid than In the communities to which the Irish tended, where, consequently, the contrast between native and foreign habits was much less strik ing, and where, moreover, speculations on the laws of population were not much in dulged in. Hence it is that the belief first Ibrmcd in respect to this matter has no gen erally held its plac**, and that it is so common to speak of the inci ease of our Irish citizens as transcending that of any other por ion of our population. It is the object of this paper to show that the belief is a mistaken onejThat the Irish among us. as they are occupying themselves, are rot contributing to the gen eral increase of the pop. lation in a degree ex ceeding tliat of the American Germans; on tue contrary, that while, iu the absence of di rect or positive proof, absolute assurance can not be icached, the probabilities incline, and incline strongly, to the greater fecundity of the latter element.—Gen.

The poem by which Ibis aut icr is best known, and which has t >e first place in the present volume, Is the favorite “Betsey and I are out.” "With Its si uple, pathos and plain, unexaggerated wording, it has touched a quickly responding chord of popular feeling. It has been read and recited, has gone the rounds of the press, and gained a place of its own in the literature distinctively American. Of course it is not to be expected that every poem that Mr. Carlton writes should attain equal popularity—even were this an exact test of merit; but each one possesses in great er or less degree, the tame natural power of ap reciation and description, and keen ,en»s of humor. “The Editors’ Visitors ’ i» a sketch Horn i.ature, very P.e-Rapbaelite ia realistic detail—whose truth and vig< r will be recognized by journalists everywhere.
