The enforcement of the laws and the difficulties encountered are as follows: "En some pnrtH of the snys the report, "the lawlessness to which atten- j tion was calied in the l.'Lst unnuai report i of this department continues. The en- j forcemeat of the internal revenue laws and of the United States election laws is j particularly resisted; ami the officers of j internal revenue. well as United States marshiils, are frequently met with 1 violence, anti are occasionally the victims j of assassination at the hands of those guilty of assaulting these anil other laws and their triumia. Several a-isussinations i of officers and witnesses, with the purpose of impeding the execution of l.iws and orders of the United States courts, have occurred during the past year. "Within the hist ten days a deputy mar- j shal. to serve a warrant for the arrest of a man for violation of rhe postal laws, shot and instantly killed by the man sought to be arrested and, on a preliminary examination a mag- istrate of tlie state, the prisoner was promptly discharged. "It is certainly ail anomaly in the gov- eminent that those who have committed murders for the purpose of stopping prose- cutions in federal courts should uot only- he but not even be put upon trial, although in at leasr. two cases in on one district during 18UO, it is well j known thur. such is the fact. It is need-, less to say that the federal conns hare I no adequate jurisdiction of these offenses.

"i. the bouse of com- mons Mr. Balfour moved a vole of to provide seed potatoes for distressed Irish cultivators. The money, he ex- plained, was not to be distributed as a but ;LS a loan. Any one paying cash for the potatoes provided by the government, would receive a discount of a) per cent. This a small part only of the measures which the Lcow.rn- ment contemplated for the purpose of meeting the impending distress. It was now clear mat as the winter progressed there would be pressure upon the poor law authorities, wlio would be un- able alone to cope with rhe troubles. The irovernment proposed to aid them by employing labor on the construction of railways in the counties of Cork. Iverry. 'ialway, Mayo, Donegal aivd Clare. Thu contractors would employ the people in the vicinity of their homestead as a rule: and where they lodged them ar the works they wouitt send weekly remittances to their families in the localities where the sufTeriuL: existed.
