of the Pours lav ge neral will be introduced j but it is apparent that if attempt much at a we ihall foon find ourfelves bewildered do It is not very difficult to inveltigate the object before and to correct the ahule which has fo long prevailed as Itcal evil but to rectify every circumltance which may be found anijfs in the Poors law in this will require much and perhaps ought not to beat tempted
