The enthusiasm with which large meetings in New York and Philadelphia lately welcomed the fabricated intelligence of the defeat of the Saxon army at Ballingarry, ought to warn us of the feelings with which our Irish difficulty is regarded abroad, and of the advantage which will infallibly be taken of it by the foreigner on every occasion of international difference.Worse, however, even than these - than all - is the certain and rapid deterioration in the condition of the bulk of the people of this island consequent on the constant overflow into it of the increasing mass of Irish misery, without other limit than the reduction of our native population to the same level of squalid wretchedness.For the immigration to which we are now exposed is not merely the ordinary, and perhaps unavoidable, influx of hewers of wood and drawers of water from the poorer to the richer country, which has always subjected our labouring population to a severe and galling competition - has established a crowded Irish quarter in all our large towns - and given almost a monopoly of the lowest and most toilsome branches of unskilled industry to the Irish in England.

Nor is it only the hurried escape of myriads from a country afflicted during the last two years by actual famine into one where wealth and charity comparatively abound, by which beggary and pestilence have been recently propagated through the thoroughfares of our cities and counties.Bad, and indeed almost intolerable, as have been these inflictions, it is more than all these with which we are now threatened.

It is that a deep-seated and general feeling has come to be entertained by the owners of the soil of the sister island that Ireland must be largely cleared of the Irish, as a first step towards the improvement of their property - the only means, as they think, of saving it from being eaten up by paupers. And the clearance of Ireland of her supposed excess of population means, and can, in our opinion, eventuate in nothing else than its transfer in bulk to England.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
