STATE OF IRELAND. (From the Times, Feb. 19.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 23 June 1846
STATE OF IRELAND. (Fiom the Times, Feb. 19.) It would be as impertinent to depreciate, as it would be impossible to exaggerate, the importance of the events on which Mr. O'Connell grounded his motion on Tuesday evening. There is not any doubt whatever that the prospects of the Irish peasantry are the very gloomiest that can be imagined. There is a won- derful and a melancholy unanimity on the subject. Mr. O'Connell and Sir J. Gra- ham concur in expressing their sense of the impending calamity, and the necessity of devising prompt measures for its re- lief. It appears, on the authority of official reports, that one half of the po- tato crop in Ireland is either destroyed or rendered unfit for consumption. The Commissioners of Inquiry at Eublin Castle report that out of 32 counties in Ireland not one has escaped failure in this crop; of 130 Poor Law Unions not one is exempt ; of 2,058 electoral divi- sions above 1,400 are represented as having suffered. Even supposing that alarm has e...

SIR ROBERT PEEL'S SPEECH. (From the Times, Feb. 18.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 23 June 1846
SIR ROBERT PEEL'S SPEECH. (From the Times, Feb. J 8.,) Sir, R. Pjekl's speech is only too suc- cessful. It is a perfect triumph of argu- ment, but the victor is the great captive of the day. The procession, the spoils, the trophies, and the banners, are beyond measure splendid ; but when we look for the hero, we perceive him bound to his own chariot.wheels. He has crushed all objections, but tbey were his own ; he has demolisht'c- :i u- ^y, but he was once its leader ; he hais seated a great crisis, but thnt crisis is the catastrophe of his own life's drama ; with one mighty effort he has brought the fabric of protection and a crowd of antagonists down to the ground, but, like the captive of Gaza, he is himself buried under the downfall. Every quality of greatness in the speech recoils on the speaker. Ile proves the dire certainty of a famine, and the im- possibility of doing more than just alle- viate its horrors : but a famine was al- ways a possible, not to say a probable event, ...
