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" "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. Wilberforce." 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 sing virtues of their potatoe.
