' FROM THE RICHMOND ENQUIRER. .
Two Irish gentlemen, new inhabitants of Pe
tersburghare said to hare formed a simi
lar plan ia regard to the airs of their native
' country, which the celebrated Burns has
executed with respect iothe airs of Scot-
. , Jand. ;Most of these old Irish tunes are of
exquisite pathos and' simplicity ; " but ,the
words to which they are usually sung, are
fct always calculated to give them their full
effect. Some arc of aa ebsoletc style ; and
some are a representation of ancient tales,
net weU understood at present, or of na
tional tuanneri, which antiquity: has rob
bed of mere loan half their charms - These
words are, to the eir which they originally
accompanied, as some old unfashionable
dress that is loosely thrown ovef a finely
finished stature. - The. antiquated drapery
merely etntlopes but does not destroy the
beauty W the statue ; and what a connoii
scur would most anxiously "desire is, to
. rr . 1 1 i r . .
ttii on una uuscxiniy gsuu 01 mHiquuj,
and give it an appearance more ensembki
with iftlings and fashion of the times."
The following beautiful song is a specimen of;
those,, which have been lattly'executed by
:.. the Foets of. Petersburg ; ;
Tv Rozih Adair,
WHEN war his iron voice
Poui'd thrpugh the land,

The warlike band ;
When m-y love heard the tale .
Her sighs encreas'd the gale,

At love's command.
A the cold mountain's snow
r Is my love fair
Clack as the raven' plume
Her flossy hair ; -In
her soft bazle eye
Sorrow's drop trembled ; I .
llt my heart bursting nigh) .
At her despair.
To the soft bosom, I
Mew, of, my dear ;
In her lids trembling stood
Toe chryaial tear ;
On my ccld clmk. it fell,

While we were engaged in washing tor gold,
Mr. ttove, one o the proprietors ot tie ad

ot our gravel ana sana, in .wdich nc-wioui
gold, said in my hearing, that he really tno t.
our prospect as cood as, theirs, ihey have
only four hundred acres, and thotigh it ii said
they have obtained between thirty and torty
thousand dollar worth of geld from this,
small place, they value it still at one hundred
thousand dollars. We. possess thirty ..five
thousand acres at least ! The gold of ours is
perfectly pure, It requires no purification.
I visited Mr. ReacTs mine and ioundthat by
amalgamation with qyicksilvir, which is ve
ry easy, and which answers 1 completely, a
great quantity of gold is obtained from the-
sand, after picking out all the lump gold, l
was informed they got six or seven ounces,
at adistil atton several times a week, tront
a very small still. I afterwards visited the j
mines of Mrs. Parker arid Mr. Harris. J
They lie in a hill that intersects the compa
ny's land.. . Mr. Harris in ploughing across a
small branch in his land turned up a small
sired piece of y;ol.l. 's"IIaving no regular
weights he tried it in a pair ef scales against
a pewter plate and spoon, which it outweigh
ed, lie then searched the run, an 4 was uc-
seisfd in finding ir.jld.' This little branch .
run's immediately into, the company's land,
lyingBttwetn-it and Rirs. barker s. Ilut it
wastry, and I consequently made no search
in il-rnor in any-of the bi nches on that side,
though I heard of gold being found in seve
ral, MrsParkff mine was discovevedr as I
was iuformtfd, in a very unexpected manner.
Hearing of sever..! discoveries, she said in a
joking manner, to some company, while
drinking tea with hs.T, " I vih gentlemen a
ny of you could find a gold mine in my land." ,
On which Mr. Etherton saW, I' will go,
madam, and search for you. He went, and
in a little time returned with a very good spe
cimen. After ,tliis they found six hundred'
dollars worth, and this season three hundred
more, though they had not yet prepared any
apparatus for even washing the gravel end'
sand. . They were making a small woodn
machine when I was there. I cannot pretend
to give an acconut of all the places where gold
hat been discovwd in the grounds bijonjing
to the company, fur it will Ukc some time bc

Friknd and Bhotbkh, ' '.
r' That great and good man, the President
of the United States esteems you and your
people. Like the rising sun that gives light
. and comfort to the world, expands the circs
of the American chief, and his debirs is to
promote the happiness of all mankind he i
particularly solicitous to better the condition
of his red children ; he wishcSithem toknovr
var no more ; to live in peace with all their
neighbours ; to pursue the deer with safety ;
to cultivate their little fielda of eorn without
fear, and that no enemy should disturb their
sleep at night.
Such, Brother, are the sentiments of the
grand American chief you have before
heard his words fro"m the mouth of his agent
(Dr. Sibley) and I hope you have not forgotten
them. " ' .
Brother '.There are some men whose
tongues are like the tongues of makes they
talk much, arid often speak that which is nut
true. Distrust the man who would, tell you,
that the President of the United States was hot
your friend ; the nian. who would say so hns
u forked tongue and tells lies. .
Brother! Let your people continue to
hold. the Americans by the hand and with
sincerity and in friendship, and the chain of
peace will be briqrht and strong ; our children
will smoke together, and the path will never,
be covered with blood.
Brother ! -The President of the U. State3
is the friend of peace, but he frars not war !
The time was muny years pat when a migh
ty king, who lives beyond the big water,
nude war upon. the Americana, uid sent his
warriors to conquer our country many bat
tles were fought, and much blood was spilled
the Americans were then few ia number,
but fought with bravery, and the warriors of
Uiat great king were forced to return to their
own land.AVe were thcrrayoung peopler-
but have, now crown ,ur t maiilhoodraiul t
could strike an enemy with a heavier hand k j .
a stronger arm.
Brother! The Pies'idem of the United
States is just to all nata'rons ; hut if a natia:i
is unjust t,o his people, his own-warriors can
fight his battles. You have seer, but a small
number of these warriors, they are spread o
vcr an immerise tract of courtry ; acme live
where snow seldom falls, and other where
armies can cross rivers upon the ice. '
Brother ! We have some dispute aboutthe
limits of Louisiana ; the Americans suppose
that the limits extend for toward the setting
sun, but our neighbour, the Spaniards, tell
us that a little dry. bayou, which you passed
yesterday, is the line.
Brother ! Ycu knevy we got the country
from the French, and that the Americans
