MR. PEABODY IN AMERICA, The special correspondent of the Herald, writing from New York, says:— Mr. George Peabody has thus far declined all in- vitations to public dinners and receptions. A few days since some of the leading men of Boston solicited Mr. Peabody's attendance on the occasion of a dinner to be given in that city. The distinguished financier and philanthropist, after mentioning pre-oecopafcion as a reason for declining the invitation, added: "'Proud as I am, and have ever been, of being an American, and of having been by birthright a citizen of the old Bay State, I feel peculiar pleasure in receiv- ing from her most eminent sons this evidence that the course which Providence has kindly enabled' me to follow, while in the land of which I have so long been a resident, has gained such cordial approval in my own native country and state. This testimonial that my eld friends have not forgotten me in my absence, and are ready to extend to me greetings, I can most heartily reciprocate. I hope for the pleasure, before again leaving for England, of personally meeting and taking by the hand most, if not all of you. Trusting that during the remainder of my life I may be so fortunate as to better justify the high opinion you have expressed of me, I remain, with sentiments of the highest respect, your humble servant, "GEORGE PEABODY." ■ ♦
