prietor is Mr. John Pearce. The Cork Constitution was origine ally called the Cork Advertiser, and was an obscure print, until the spread of Brunswickism enabled it to merge into notoriety as an advocate of those principles. There are two papers in Limerick, the Chronicle, which is now in its sixty-third year-like Sanders's News, this paper is prosperous without talent. The original proprietor was a person named Walsh, and from him it reverted to an alderman of Limerick named Watson, who continued, by efforts which few men have the capability or the disposition of making, to obtain for the Chronicle a large portion of government patronage ; and even to this day the army intelligence first appears in that paper, and is copied from it into the London and Dublin journals. The Limerick Chronicle, however, is fast declining, as appears by the last parliamentary returns—this change has been caused by the distaste of a great number of its former readers for the malignant, but clumsy opposition of the Chronicle to the progress of toleration. The other Limerick
paper, the Evening Post, is the property of Mr. Geary, and it has been distinguished, particularly during the period of the Clare election, for efficient and talented conduct. But like many other honest papers, its profits are small, although its circulation is considerable. The Waterford Chronicle, and the Tipperary Free Press are excellent provincial papers. It is rather a singular fact, that the editor of the latter journal, established by a number of public-spirited gentlemen, totally unconnected with
newspapers, was recommended to their notice on account of his having written libels on a member of the Beresford family in the Waterford Chronicle during the last election for that county. There are few other papers in Ireland deserving of the slightest notice. As Connaught is the most backward of the provinces in intelligence and literary improvement, so also are the journals in it remarkable for want of talent and almost illegible printing. The Connaught Journal is one of the oldest papers in Ireland, and belongs to Mr. O'Flaherty. It is a pubsic-spirited print, and has more of the appearances of prosperity than any of its western contemporaries.

been taken to obtain correct information, and to avoid giving offence. The writer has had no party purpose to serve, no individuals to please, and none whom he would wish to injure
or offend. If inaccuracies have crept in, they were unavoidable: those who can detect them are, at the same time, able to account for their existence; and the public, generally, will, it is hoped, look with indulgence on the attempt to supply them with information on a subject which is allowed to be of general interest.
