About the same time, the depate, which
was about Fnglish labourers, being one
evening unusually dull, Jack I'innaity, who
bad hut a short time Ic lbre been imported
from Tipperary, said to the only other epor
ter in the gallery at the time, that he left
very drowsy, and that ho would bo after
taking a little bit of a nap, if he would tell
him, when he awoke, anything which might
take place. The other agreed; and Jack,
in a moment, was fast locked in the arms of
Morpheus. Au hour elapsed, and after half-a-dozen
yawns .Jack opened bis eyes.
"lias anything happened?" was his first
question to his friend.
"To be sure there has," said the other,
whose name was Moigan ()'. Sullivan.
"Has there, by the powers!" exclaimed
Jack, pricking up his ears in the plentitudo
of his anxiety to learn what it was.
"Ves, Jack, and very important."
"By Jasus, then, and why don't you be
after telling it me at oncer What was it
"About the virtue of the Irish potatoe, Jack."
"Was it the Irish potatoe you said, Mor
gan?' "The Irish potatoe; and a most eloquent
speech it was."
"Thunder and lightning, then, and why
don't you tell it me?"
"I'll read it from my note book, Jack, and
vou'll take it down as i goon," said Morgan.
"Och, it's myself, that's ready at any
time to w rite what any Mimbcr kms about
our praties Are you ready to begin'"
"Quite ready," answered Morgan.
".Now then," said Jack, with an energy
which strangely eontiasted with the previous
langour nf his manner. "Now, then, Mor
gan, my boy."
Morgan affecting to read from his note
hook, commenced thus; "The honouiable
3Iimbcr said, that if"
"Och, be aisy a little pit," interrupted
Jack; "m7o was the honouiable Miuiber?''
Morgan, hesitating for a moment "Was
it his name you asked? Sure it was Mr.
Mr. Wilberforce! Och, very wtll then
Morgan resumed. Mr. Wilbeif rec said,
it ulwavs appeared to him beyond all ques
tion, that the groat cause why the Irish la
bourers were, as body, so much stronger and
capable of enduring so much greater physi
cal fatigue than the Knglish, was the surpas
