A TRAMP'S VIEW OF THE IRISH FREE STATE.
[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.] SIR,—A few days ago one of our typical Irish tramps went to the house of a friend of mine to beg. After his customary long and leisurely exposition of his misfortunes and his needs, he was sent away with nothing. A passer-by heard him grumble as he departed : "Them are no good. If they were any good they'd be gone out of the country like all docent people." The remark was more illuminating than probably even the tramp himself supposed.—! am, Sir, &c., SOUTHERN LOYALIST.
