England Great changes are manifest in the population of the Old Bay as well as iu other sections of New England These changes are daily more and more perceptible ly in the most populated Eastern States and merit the attention of the closest observers It is evident that the population of New England is undergoing transformation to such an extent that in a couple of tions it will hardly resemble the long established type The influx of for- eign immigration which has been steady and unremitting for more than forty years although differing largely j iu volume at various times has been an important agency in bringing the change The reflex ment of the is the ment of those sons and New England that have settled in the Western States and have taken into their composition the breadth the rough impatience and the daring ambition of that vast new section also had much to do with the trans- formation The war which sent so many thousands of young men out be narrow boundaries to which j have previously become ed and brought them into contrast with phases of the national they had never before seen Central City Committee in tho Hub of the a short time since nearly all of the speakers were Irish or at least bore Irish names and at tho ward meetings in Boston and many other large Xew England cities one always finds Hibernians among the active workers and ers The Irish character is seen iu its best and phases in every town and hamlet in the Eastern States New England is undergoing ninny changes which are quite as much to the tendency of her natives to crowd in centers as to the increase of her foreign population Crime is rather more frequent iu the cities than it was dozen years ago are much more numerous than of old It pears difficult to secure in some of the States anything like decent lation on the subject of the sale of liquors although it is generally ad- mitted that ardent spirits provoke much of the violent crime The con- dition of laboring women in many New England cities is not a ter nor are they more effectually protected than in some of the pean countries where society is ty thoroughly disorganized Luxury and boarding do away with real family life and tend to check the growth of the native population in the country as well as in the town It is even announced now and then that rings and lobbyist measures for the good and do their work with that bruta frankness and disregard of public opinion which would have been im- possible in the New England of for the tea tea is the best policy one but which ADVERTISEMENTS CAMPBELL FALLON Oakland Point

in molding n new type It encouraged a general spirit of dis- content among large classes in the fanning regions and induced them to desert the granite hills and flock to the adjacent cities or even to those thousands of miles away Nowhere has the Irish character taken a stronger hold than in certain parts of New England and there are to-day sections of the Eastern States from which the original populations have been completely crowded out by the frugal and determined Celt There has been in none of these sections anything like a marked hostility between Yankee and man on account of tho difference iu religious belief or national habits but it is noticeable that the Yankee wove recedes before the Irish seems to disappear entirely and out noise It is a remarkable fact too that the Irish including those in Ireland and of Irish parents in this country greatly outnumbers all other foreigners in New England According to the of 1870 the whole number of foreigners in the six Eastern States was of were Irish As the Germans have monopolized portions of the West so the Irish seem ally to affect portions of New land And this is not wholly ex- by tho fact that there are large numbers of manufacturing throughout setts New Hampshire Rhode Island and the Irish make good farmers on the hills which our Southern and Western friends are pleased to term Weak and and grow lich and prosperous with only half the which the Germans have iu the Central States There are more than and fifty thousand persons of Irish blood iu and it is idle to deny that their presence has worked a marked change in the acter of the population In some parts of the State the public schools nice purely American and ined on the sternest Democratic ba- is has become less and less a inent institution as the Irish have come in because the Americans tho character of the schools changing new influences either withdrawn their children en- tirely or ceased to take the same vital interest in the education of the masses us of old allowing and to displace the schools In some of the New England cities notably iu Boston the Irish tute almost one half the population and the Irish a typo it is difficult to define exactly yet which differs from its fellow composite in the Middle States has much to do with the con- duct of affairs statistics have shown us that some Irish ily names have six or eight hundred iu Boston alone and many of these names are prominent jn politics At a meeting of the what you will the world is governed by cheek best method of constructing a an n wilest sinner may
