The third and final Report of the Irish Poor-law Commissioners

has appeared this week. It is a document of extraordinary interest, and contains plans for improving the condition of the Irish population, which, if worked out with the requisite vigour and promptitude, must effect a mighty revolution in the structure of the social system of Ireland, and more rapidly than the moderately sanguine have been thinking possible. The Parliamentary recess has enabled us to devote a large portion of our space to an abstract of the Report, and some observations on its more prominent points; but we shall have frequent occasion to refer to this subject, which far surpasses in magnitude and importance every other on which Parliament is now called upon to legislate.
