These changes are daily more and more perceptible, especial- ly in the most populated Eastern States, and merit the attention of the closest observers. It is evident that the population of New England is undergoing transformation to such an extent, that in a couple of genera- tions it will hardly resemble the long established type. The influx of for- eign immigration, which has been steady and unremitting for more than forty years, although differing largely j iu volume at various times, has been an important agency in bringing nbont the change. The reflex seutf- ment of the is, the senti- ment of those sons and daughteis o: New England that have settled in the Western States, and have taken into their composition the breadth, the rough impatience, and the daring ambition of that vast new section, ha> also had much to do with the trans- formation. The war, which sent so many thousands of young men out be 'ondthe narrow boundaries, to which j have previously become reconcil- ed, and brought them into contrast with phases of the national charnctei they had never before seen, ocratic Central City Committee in tho "Hub of the a short time since, nearly all of the speakers were Irish, or at least bore Irish names; and at tho ward meetings in Boston and many other large Xew England cities, one always finds Hibernians among the active workers and speak- ers. The Irish character is seen iu its best and phases in every town and hamlet in the Eastern States. New England is undergoing ninny changes which are due- quite as much to the tendency of her natives to crowd togefher in Ifirge centers, as to the increase of her foreign population. Crime is rather more frequent iu the cities than it was even'ri dozen years ago. jMurders are much more numerous than of old.'' It ap- pears difficult to secure, in some of the States, anything like decent legis- lation on the subject of the sale of liquors, although it is generally ad- mitted that ardent spirits provoke much of the violent crime. The con- dition of laboring women in many New England cities is not a vhit bet- ter, nor are they more effectually protected, than in some of the Euro'- pean countries, where society is pret- ty thoroughly disorganized." Luxury and "boarding" do away with real family life, and tend to check the growth of the native population in the country as well as in the town. It is even announced, now and then that "rings" and lobbyist prcvui jaiust measures for the g one for the tea aonest tea is the best policy. one, but which ADVERTISEMENTS.

It encouraged a general spirit of dis- content among large classes in the fanning regions, and induced them to desert the "granite hills" and flock to the adjacent cities, or even to those thousands of miles away. Nowhere has the Irish character taken a stronger hold than in certain parts of New England; and there are to-day sections of the Eastern States from which the original populations have been completely crowded out by the frugal, thriffy, and determined Celt. There has been in none of these sections anything like a marked hostility between Yankee and Irish- man on account of tho difference iu religious belief or national habits; but it is noticeable that the Yankee wove recedes before the Irish seems to disappear entirely and with- out noise. It is a remarkable fact, too, that the Irish, including those in Ireland and of Irish parents in this country, greatly outnumbers all other foreigners in New England. According to the cen'sus of 1870, the whole number of foreigners in the six Eastern States was C4C.001, of whoai were Irish. As the Germans have monopolized portions of the West, so the Irish seem speci- ally to affect portions of New Eng- land. And this is not wholly ex- plained by tho fact that there are large numbers of manufacturing es- tablishments throughout Massachu- setts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and the Irish make good farmers on the hills which our Southern and Western friends are pleased to term ''Weak and and grow lich and prosperous with only half the which the Germans have iu the Central States. There are more than twohundred and fifty thousand persons of tfomixed Irish blood iu -Massachusetts, and it is idle to deny that their presence has worked a marked change in the char- acter of the population. In some parts of the State, the public schools, nice purely American, and main- ined on the sternest Democratic ba- is, has become less and less a prom- inent institution as the Irish have come in, because the Americans, flndiug tho character of the schools changing multr new influences, Imve either withdrawn their children en- tirely, or ceased to take the same vital interest in the education of the masses us of old, allowing and privnto to displace the schools. In some of the New England cities, notably iu Boston, the Irish consti- tute almost one half the population, .and the ''Irish a typo it is difficult to define exactly, yet which differs con.sidi'rubly from its fellow composite in the Middle States, has much to do with the con- duct of affairs.
