They Are incite and assisted by those who have gone Are there really no Bounds to this emigration or even a probability of its being confined to it present amount 1 civil War Between the state of the Union or a dreadful epidemic nigh Check the emigration but that would be on for a time. On the whole we bold it Safe u reckon on Ireland being still further depopulated and the United states still further peopled from that Island. But Why should not the population of Ireland be reduced to say four or five millions Shouk that indeed come to pass it must and will involve great changes in the social and Politica state not Only in Ireland but of great Britain also. It must greatly increase the value of labor and the appreciation of the labourer throw thou these Isles. For a whole generation Man has been a drug in this country and population a nuisance. It has scarcely entered into Tho Heads ing the Crucifix. He never moved again. Immediately after the execution. General Lopez s body was taken Down and privately buried.

I have heard talk of the pleasures of idleness yet it is my own firm belief that no one Ever y it took pleasure in it. Mere idleness is the most disagreeable slate of existence and both body and mind Are continually making efforts to a Cape from mischief which is very True but mis itself is merely an attempt to escape from the dreary vacuum of idleness.
