Leland before Me Union: a Sequel to the Sham Squire.

By W. J. Fitz- patrick. (Dublin : Kelly.)—A rudis indigestaque moles of jobs and atroci- ties, some under cover of law, others under cover of order, and all of them a deep reproach to England. It is fortunate for us that Mr. Fitzpatrick has not the art of telling a plain tale, and cannot make use of his mate- rials. They will be made use of some time or other, and than they will explain much of that hostility which we now have to disarm, and will show why later justice does not suffice to expiate cruelty.
