7'houghte and Feels fur the Consideration of the Irish Connesdion.

By an Ulster Irishman/. (Belfast : W. and 0. Baird.)—Sfr. Adam Duflin, the author of this pamphlet, analyses the Nationalist scheme of Irish finance put forward by Mr. M. A. Ennis, and shows that it is an excessively ingenious proposal to make Great Britain continue to pay Ireland'. bills. Under new taxation Ireland contributed last year i3,332,000 to Imperial expenditure, or about half her due pro. portion. Mr. tismia's idea is to retain two.tErals of this already inadequate contribution for Irish purposes, though Ireland has suffered less from the war than any other part of the United Kingdom.
