"A novel sight was witnessed on the
canal bank this evening at the foot o:
Tenth street. Over one hundred
Swedes, men, women and children
healthy, robust looking people, with
red cheeks and sharp-toed shoes, were
waiting lo take the boat for a farm in
Goochland. The first emigrants from
Sweden arrived here on the loth of
May, twenty-two in number, and the
next let, it is supposed, will number sev
eral hundred. They go to a farm up
on which a beautifut little village has
already been built for them, end on one
of the white cottages is "Stockholm" in
large letters, a name that will rejoice
their eyes. The colored people, of
whom there were a good many stand
ing around this newly arrived "labor,"
seemed very much disgusted at the
turn things have taken. A great many
remarks were made in hope of discour
aging the Swedes, but as they didn't
understand a word of English they
were all lost to them. A favorite ex
pression was : 'What you all come
from your rich country down here
whar we's poar as nuffin?" The idea
with the negroes was that they were
from the North; but while they
missed where they came from, they
were smart enough to know what dam
age their arrival here does the colored
race. These immigrants get twelve
dollars a month for the males, and
eight dollars a month for the females,
and fed. No male receives pay un
less he is fifteen years old."

The undersigned -has read in the

nouncement of a funeral to take place
next Sunday from St. Patrick's Church
in ihin city, of a deceased menber of

St. Paul, Minnesota, on the 246 inst.
The occasion is evidently made for a
display, on the part of those iu Saint

and the pageant which is to accompany

done the pastor of thatchuxh to per

casion. I have furthermore directed
the Superintendent of the Calviry Cem
etery r.ot to admit any procession of
men or women bearing insigna of Fe
nianism within the gale of the Cemete

ly, what I have uniformly stated in
private conversation, that the members
of the Fenian Brotherhood, rrtn or wo
men, are not admissable to tie sacra
ments of the Church as long as they
are united with that association, which
I have always regarded as lmnoral in
its object the exciting of rebellion in

means, a quasi-military organization
in this country while at peace vith Eng

The Growth or Young Timber
I want to tell my story, which I know
to be true and perfectly correct, as al
the parties are to me.well known and
of unimpeachable varacity. The scene
is in Berkshire Co., Mass. A boy
reaped wheat in a field that boy grew
to be a man, acd lived to the ripe oi
nT of 82 vears. Before he died he
! sat in his chair and saw a neighbor o
his from day Jo day drawing saw logs
to mill. This man drew, sawed and
sold 151,000 feet of lumber, and a
from 3 1-2 acres of the ground upon
which the old man when a boy had
reaped wheat. The timber was most

The Freedmen's Bureau received a
a report from an officer, sent on a tour
of investigation through the lower Ma
ryland counties, showing the condition
of the Government farms. There are
three of these farms cultivated for the
Government by the freedmen. Of
over thirteen hundred acres under cul
tivation, exclusive of the gardens ef
the people, on; hundred and seventy
five acres are planted in wheat, 630 in
corn, 215 in tobacco, 240 in oats, sev
en in potatoes and four in beans.
There are 33" people reported on the
farms 121 men, 210 women, and 203
children under fourteen years of age.
They are divided into two classes
laborers and' dependents. The first
class includes one hundred and sixteen
men and 121 women, who are self-
supporting the second wives of men;
S9 men and 233 children, who are
not in addition to the regular farm
ing operations. Over 1,000 cords of
of wood have been cut, piled up, and
drawn, and wharves built at the landing
places, buildings repaired, fences built,
&.c. Saw and grist mill are being put
in running order, which, when comple
ted, will supply every need in that
direction. The people are in good
condition and very well contented; are
well clad and tidy, and their persons,
clothing and houses neat and clean.

one case of concubinage. There is no
