Are Negroes Better than Irishmen?
The New York Tablet (Catholic) is indignant because Mr. Carter, one of the owners of the Washington Union, in his capacity of assistant clerk of the House, dismissed two Irishmen who tended the furnaces, and placed two Negroes in their places, giving the Negroes higher wages, too, than the Irishmen. The Tablet asks if Negroes are better citizen than Irishmen, under the Democratic administration.
