good she isnervous, hysterical and dys
peptic, and therefore the strength of
her muscles is not what it should be
and you will find that Mrs. St. Clair's
life and conversation as thus detailed
by Mrs. Stowe are a continual lamenta
tion on the hardship of her case from
the fatigue she experiences in conse
quence of the performance of the neces
sary duty of flogging the slaves. Gen
tlemen, we have been flogging Ireland
with rare periods of intermission for
centuries, and it is no wonder that the
operation gets a little fatiguing it is no
wonder if Lord Salisbury's arm is tired,
for it is impossible permanently to gov
erna free people by coercive means in
the light of day and in the atmosphere
of freedom which happily pervades this
country. If you really believe that Ire
land could be pacified with such means
as are now in operation, it would be a
different matter but pray recollect that
our true opposition to this bill is be
cause it is not an attempt to render
more stringent the law against crime,
because it is not really in the main di
rected against crime, but against those
combinations of the people which in
substance have been known in this
country under the names of trades
unions, which trades unions have been
open to a good deal of criticism, and
have produced various inconveniences,
but which, notwithstanding, have vin
dicated the independence of the labor
ing population of the country, and have
upon the whole produced an immense
balance of good. The laboring popula
tion of this country had a power which
the Irish laboring population had not,
and this attempt to strike at their com
binations, not when they pass into
crime, because we make no difficulty
or "objection to the punishment of a
combination when it passes into crime,
but this attempt to put down a combi
nation which is not crime has received,
and, I trust, will receive, the hearty and
determined opposition of every Liberal
politician. Believe in the Irish people
to this extent, that they are human be
ings, full of noble qualities, and if they
have defects, as no doubt they have, for
we all, in every country, have them—
in my belief there is no country on the
face of the earth in which you can so
clearly trace these defects to the mis
government and the oppression from
which they have been sufferers for cen
turies. Believe in them to that extent.

be their normal sentiment, that Ireland
is a country made to be governed by
force. Ireland is not a country to be
governed by force any more than Wales
or England or Scotland was made to be
governed .by force. It is the injustice
with which she has been treated that is
at the root of nearly all her miseries,
and nineteen-twentieths of her sins are,
in my belief, an undeniable proposition
to be traced thereto. It is for you to
consider whether you will take your
stand upon that ground or not but if
you do take your stand upon it, I will
venture to cheer you in a difficult and
arduous contest—to cheer you with the
assertion that in the future your
triumph is as certain as anything in the
future can be. and that in the present
you have the sympathy, the approba
tion and the prayers on your behalf of
the British empire at large, of the
Anglo-Saxon race at large, and of civ
ilized Christendom in all quarters of the
