[Text: Edgar Allan Poe (?), Notice of Irish Emigrants Society of New York and Restoration of the Jews (A), from The Evening Mirror (New York), January 16, 1845, p. 2, col. 3.]

[page 2, column 3:]

THE IRISH EMIGRANTS SOCIETY OF NEW YORK TO THE PEOPLE OF IRELAND. -- This is the title of a circular which embodies a large amount of valuable information for Irish immigrants to this country -- indeed for any immigrants -- and to the people of the U. S. It has, among other things, a statement of the average expenses of the journey to different parts of the Western States, where land can be purchased on the best terms.

The general tone of this circular, and the fund of sound advice which it embraces, are nothing more than we had a right to expect from the highly respectable and influential gentlemen who subscribe it as President, Vice President, Executive Committee, etc., of the Society in which it originates.

= = = = = = = = =

RESTORATION OF THE JEWS. -- The discourse on the Restoration of the Jews, delivered lately by Mr. Noah at the Tabernacle, has been published in a neat form by the Harpers, and includes a map of the Land of Israel, according to the covenant with Abraham. This discourse is an extraordinary one, full of novel and cogent thought, and will be widely circulated and admired.

In connection with its theme, we may mention that a Society is about to be founded in London with the title, "The British and Foreign for promoting the Restoration of the Jewish Nation to Palestine."

[Both of these items are attributed to Poe as "probably his" by W. D. Hull. For "The Irish Immigrants," Hull says, "this is Poe's tone." For "The Restoration of the Jews," Hull says, "Again, the same verdict."]
