[To THE EDITOR Or TILE "SPECTATOR.'" SIR,—Mr. E. A. Aston likes to make bad blood. There are others besides Sir E. Carson who are able to speak for Ulster, and, if necessary, fight for it. Where is Ireland's credit coming from if Home Rule is carried out ? What was the cause of civil war in America P Was it not that the South thought they could do better for themselves P What would United Italy say if people in Modena or Parma attempted to bring back an Austrian Grand Duke? As one who had a hand in the "making of Italy," I say that a provisional Government will have to be fixed upon beforehand, wire fencing put up, and then Nationalists and their backers may advance at their own peril, and their blood be on their own beads.—I am, Sir, &c., F. VERE WRIGHT, United Empire Club, Piccadilly, W.

CoL and J.P. for Notts.
