to be an improvement upott+ho old and rapidly
wearing out one commonly known os the mar?
riage tie. Like thc former, the L.iter ls prod.ic

and merriment" in the particular family inter?
ested for the time being. The "Siamese link,''
however, is stated not to be removable without
"considerable difficulty"-a qualification which
certainly gives lt superiority over the oilier one
as a boucl. Thc necessity of''mutual consc it," too,
as a condition toseparation.is au advantage ou the
side of the "Siamese link." Dissolution of the mar?

it is clear that uo elopement of either one party
or the other thus bound could take place unless

particulars, at least, lt ls infinite:;.' superior to the
Tile Great Irlxh Question.
Tlte New York Tribune prints a compre?
hensive exhibit of the great Irish question,
which is now looming up in the public mind
and attracting thc earnest attention of both
legislators and people. In order to a right
understanding of the evil, as it exists, and
of the remedies which are proposed, wc
condense from the Tribune a statement of
the most salient poiuts.
At present, the Irish tenants are wholly
at the mercy of their landlords. They muy
be turned out any time, and if they resist
the crowbars ure used, the huts are levelled,
aud tiie miserable peasantry cast homeless
upon the charity of their neighbors. To
such an extent was the proce?3 carried nut,
that in 1844 Mr. Bernai Osborne said in the
House of" Commons that between the years
1839 and 1843 the number of individual oc?
cupiers served with processes was 70,982, a
number which represented 3.r>4.910 individu?
als-live parsons being allowed to each fam?
ily-rendered houseless and homeless. As
the result of a debate In the House of Com?
mons, an act of Parliament was passed pro?
viding that no process should be executed
on any Christmas day or Good Friday-a
very humane act. Between the years 1841
and 1861, during which the clearance of
estates was continued, the population of
Ireland, as he found from official records,
became reduced from 8,174,000 to 5,700,000.
In other words, while in Scotland, with its
2,500,000 of people, there was an increase
of 1,250,000, Ireland suffered a decrease of
?,474,006. During the debate in 1866 it was
stated by Mr. Gregory, M. P. for Galway,
that 95 per cent, of the present holders of
land in Ireland were tenants at will-that
was, had no legal document whatever to se?
cure their tenancy. In one case within four
days 36 houses were levelled ; and a sum of
?700 was afterward raised to send the oc?
cupiers to Australia. "Those poor people,
"when released from the poorhouse to which
"they had been taken, went to the once
"happy valley where they had lived, and
"kneeling over the tomb3 where their fathers
"and tho children of many of them were
"buried, took grass clods away, aud going
"to their broken-down Looses, took splin?
ters from the door-posts, that they might
"carry away with them memorials of thc
"village they loved and of the land of their
The Irishman is nearly always a tenant at
will. He has no lease or contract, and,
though he may greatly increase the value, of
his holding by impro.Y?ffier.tS, may be turned
out, in many districts, at any moment, with?
out a penny. In Ulster the system is some?
what better. The principle of the Ulster
Tenant Right is that any man who has the
agricultural holding of a farm may sell In
right to another, the incoming tenant pay?
ing to the outgoing one a sum in considera?
tion of what labor he has put into the land
and leaves in it. Even Lore, the landlord
is an enormous gaiae'. ; for the cost of im?
provements rests '.pon the tenaiiLs alone;
nor is he restricto . by the fact of improve?
ments from inc casing Iiis rent. Yet this
partial protection system is so much better
than no protect: JU at all that Ulster is the
most prospero .3 province in tho inland.
Munster has 4,.r>00,000 acre* and Ulster only
4.009,000; but the amount of property in
Ulster is .?3,9'. ),OOO and in Munster only
?3,500.000. Tiie number of persons on the
square mile in Muuster is only 160, in Ulster
it is 221. Thc number of separate farm
holdings in Munster was 126,181 ; in Ulster
it was 221,946. The number of farms ata
rent of from ?1 to ?8 was, in Munster,
22,700; in hf Ister, 57,600; farms from ?8 to
?10, in Munster, 9270; in Ulster, 21,125;
farms from ?10 ta,?15, in Munster, 16,000;
in Ulster, 33,900. The total holdings and
small-class farms varying in rent from ?4
to ?20, was 60,400 in Munster, and (making
allowance for a diffoxence of one-tenth,) in
Ulster, 146,000. There1 were in Ulster
nearly three time3 the number of small hold?
ings os in Munster, and yet by common con?
sent the Ulster population was happy, pros?
perous and wealthy; while in Munster, where
there were more large farms, the people
were miserable, discontented and disaffect?
ed. Of farms paying a rent of over ?50,
there were 10, COO in Munster and 6000 in
Ulster. What would be the result upon the
production of food ? That was a question
in which English and Irish were alike inter?
ested. The cereal crops in Munster amount?
ed in value to ?2,213,000 a year. Crops ci
the same kind in Ulster were worth ?3,016,
000 a year, or (allowing for difference, in
area,) nearly ?3,250,000. The whole crops
in Ulster-cereal, hay and clover-amount?
ed in value together in 1807 to Cl J,000,0'U
against ?7,00 ),00) ?ti Munster. Were the
whole of Ireland subject to the improved
small-farm system of Ulster, ?11,000,000
worth of produce would be added to Us
present ?.;0,000,000 worth. "Why, with
"more fertile laud, and a moro favorable
"climate, was Munster at sucha disadvan?
tage? Thc explanation was that Ulster
"had a tenant right of occupancy."
The people who have reclaimed bog and
mountain and marsh are without leases
without any claim whatever upon the land.
When a tenant has made his farm pay a ,
rent and living, he often ceases to Improve
it for fear that his landlord will regard Iiis
industry tis a sign that he e ui pay more
rent. That l;e is thus au actual slave to his
landlord, and that he ought to have* such a
el din in law as would make him more or
less Independent^ is not lo lie disputed. An
English wiiter in point quotes Sir Edward
Coke, who helli that "an Englishman
"hath and ought io have a feu in Iiis liberty,
"and not a mere li uuu.-y-at-will; for nu
''tenant-ot-?ill will support or improve any?
thing becauseHu hath no certain estate;
/therefore, to make new tcnanis-ot-wiU de
"strove all industry whatsoever." Is
longer doubtful that thia is nt leas
cause why Irishmen are poor ? Lord
bury, another great lawyer, naturally
posed to favor thc landlords, asked, ?
years ago, if it was not consistent wit
tice for the law to assume a tacit n
standing on the part of the laudlon
the tenant was lo enjey tho results (
improvements; und a lalo Master o
Rolls in Ireland, declaring that, acco
to a fixed law, ho was Uowul to admii
injustice in a certain case, remarked
"nothing could be more repugnant to
"ral justice than that a landlord should

"ant from year to year, withont wai
"him of his intention to turn him out of
The Tribune gives the following as a ;
imen of the various covenants made by
"The lease ls from year lo year, detern
by?8ix months' notice, ending on eithet
day, and nol, as in common yearly tonal
on the day from which the letting bedail
reserves all timber, bogs, mines, 'game, li
rabbits, wild fowl and fish,' with ttie rij;
shooting, Ac., to Lord Leitrim, ids lieiif
assigns, his and their nominees, servants
followers.' and gives him power to cute
the purpose of surveying, searching for ti
ral-, and making roads and drains.
"The tenant is restrained from ma
new roads, fences or drains on the. land,
from building and altering any house thei
aud from allowing any house thereon I
used as a dwelling house, except that in w
he himself resides, and he is also put :i
<very stringent conditions as to ti?iuro. 1
to keep In repair, and tc yield up in repa!
buildings. Ac. He is 'to dig up or cut d
all thistles? docks and other weeds, be
they go to seed, or at any time when des
to do so by the said Karl ot Leitrim.' The
ont is also io assist to the utmost the
Earl-in prosecuting trespassers.'
"If he breaks ?my of thufe conditions. I
to be subject to a further rent, in the natui
liquidated damages; which, for the bene!
unprofessional readers, it may be as well tc
serve means that the whole ponai sum st
lated for is to be paid upon any breach of ?
ditton, and not merely so much of it as wt
be a fair compensation lor the damage ai
ally inflicted. Finally, nothing in the k
contained ls to entitle tho tenant to 'any JJ
ment or compensation for any farm or ot
building for agriculture or otherwise, or
any fixture or improvement of any descriptl
unless the making of such work or imprc
ment shall have been previously stipulated
and specified by an agreement in writing."'
The plan proposed by Mr. Bright is
Parliament to buy landed estates in Ircb
of the large proprietors and sell them
farms to the touants. The government <
borrow the money required ut ;U per cou
the teuaut can pay the government as r<
about 6 per eeut. Tue diff?rence betwt
thc cost to the government and the arnot
paid to tho L-nant would give tbe farm to (
tenant, ut the end of fifteen or tweuty you
without further payment. Mr. Brigit* sai
"Thus, at the cud of a very few years, t
. "farmer would possess bis ow i farm, havi
"a perfect security. All the time nobo
"could tum him ont il he paid bis rent, ai
"nobody could touch bim for ?my itnproi
"nient ho made on his land. The ne
"morning after he made that agreement i
"would spei'k to bis wife and to bis big bo
'.'aiid there would not be a stono-oakthe lal
"that would not be removed, not a wei
"that be wo^ld uot pull up, not a particle
"manure that he would not save."
There is now no Lick of testimony as
Irish wrongs. ?.Mr. Bright thought that tl
"larger landlordism of English govormnei
"was brutal. Mr. Gladstone admits
"tragic retrospect when be says that Ir
"land ought to be governed for Irisbmci
"Lord Clarendon describes landlordism c
"felony. Professor Rogers, of Oxford, write
"that Ireland's social condition is the gros:
"est BCanml, and that from n > f.iult of
"thrifty people. Prussiu bas ^ivcu thu rig!
"of hereditary fixture to her peasants; En<

"a right to bis improvement!, seenrit

What the Irish want is to give th? land
lords a fair rent but nothing else, and to fret
tho tenant from serfdom by making bis righ
against eviction legaL They waut a bettoi
state of affairs thau that protested against ii
185S by Lr>rd Landadowne's tenantry: "Wt
"have been made keenly sensible of abjeel
"dependence by eertaiu rules and regulations
"which are now enforced on this estate. By
"those nil .. no tenant can marry or procure
"the marriage of his son or daughter without
"permission from your lordship's ageut,
"even when no change of tenancy would
"arise." The various points of reform de?
manded may be suited as follows :
"L Fixity or perpetuity of tenure, based
upon a fair rental to be determined by an ag?
ricultural board or other body.
"2. Thc purchase of absentee's estatos and
their sale to the government, to be let to the
tenants with a view of giving proprietorship
"3. Thc Prussian land-bank system, with
loans lo the tenants, much the same as Mr.
"4. Tenants to be permitted to sell their in?
terests or tiood will.
"5. That an absentee tax of 2s. in the pound
be levied, and that certain laxes be divided
between landlord and tenant.
"(j. No rent beyond valuation, and allowance
in the valuation tor improvements, and for
"7. No leases, no rents, and permanency
under good behavior; If not that, then thirty
one years leases."
These are the principal demand; of tb-:
various reforms proposed for the land ques?
tion. What the English Ministry-are likely
to allow is something between Mr. Bright's
piau and thc Ulster system, with a prefer?
ence for thc latter. This is the b ast that
they eau do. They should do more.
