It is eo new question tc this country.
English misrule for the last half cen
tury in Ireland haa precipitated an op
pressed, and at limes, poveriy stricken
immigration upon our chores During
ncne of the famines,in limes pasr.wl.ich
have always increased the volume of
Irish immigrants to America, has this
home government shown any disposi
tion to take care of her Irish subjects
iu a paternal manner. In government
ciicles, in times past, the audacious
proposition hag been made by the Eng
lish government to furnish free bottoms
to the evicted tenantry of Ireland, in
order to land them upon our shores and
thus get rid of a dissatisfied pojMila,
tion. And this with the full knowl
edge of the Americau government both
at home and abroud.
It seem to us folly upon the part of
the authorities at Washington and New
York to talk about returning these
paupers to their native is'aud or com
pelling the steamship c nip uiies which
brought them here, to return them. We
presume that these steamships, if paid
enough by this govcrament,would have
no objection to carrying lhes people
back and forth the emire sea.-on.
"We are quite certain that this govern
ment has no power to compel them to
return these paupers to the ol-f vortd.
we are aiso quire certain liiut our
government should i-ct Httmnpl to rem
edy this evil by refusing to receive this
immigration in the ubsnc- of legisla
tion. It is not a matter between the Iri-h
immigrant and this great govferumeut ;
he has a right to come to this country
in any manner open to him. It is this
English nation wh is thus seeking to
get rid of their dissatisfied subjects, we
have to deal with. And we hope that
the present administration will so em
phasize its requests and demands upon
England, in this respect, that there will
be no mistaking our position. Ireland
is misgoverned ; the life is ground out
of her people; for long weary years
they haye been forced to fly from a
i home rule which should shelter and
protect them, to this country a on
asylum. And whether th lr way has
been paid by co-operative s w ieties in
this country, or at home, makes very
