"Yet mean, cruel and atrocious as every civilized Mind must consider the Doctrine that Ireland has no Need of Poor Laws, or some Equivalent for them,- hateful and abominable as is such a Screen for Inhumanity,-there are Men, or Things with Human Pretensions, nay, with lofty Privileges, who do not blush to treat the mere Proposal of establishing a Fund for the Relief of the diseased or helpless Irish with brutal Ridicule and almost impious Scorn. Will any Man credit that an Irish Absentee Lord could say what he is reported to have uttered in the House of Peers last Night, when Lord Rosebery presented a Petition praying that a compulsory Tax on Land might be introduced into Ireland towards alleviating her Poor? We shall not name him, because the House of Lords is armed with a Thing called "a Bar," and other disagreeable Appendages. But there are Members of that House who surprise nobody by declaring their Indifference to "popular Odium," especially when they are at such a Distance from Ireland as to ensure the Safety of their Persons."
