    Suffering in New York.

    The large number of poor men thrown out of employment in New York by the present unfortunate condition of the country, is exciting much attention and consideration in that city. A letter from that place says:

    “There is some talk about the Mayor sending a special message to the common council, recommending measures of relief for the mechanics and laborers out of work, if not out of food. There is also a deep feeling of resentment in this city towards the Republicans, who are accused as the authors of all the troubles that have come upon the country, and as the men who have taken the bread out of the mouths of women and children. This feeling does not appear on the surface of things, but as soon as the waters are stirred, it will ooze up and lead to fresh trouble. In the course of the week, there will probably be an effort made by the Union and conservative men of all parties to get up a demonstration in favor of conciliation and compromise, but its success is doubtful, few believing that it will do any good in the present position of affairs.
