FORTNIGHTLY REVIEW.

No. CLXXV. NEW SERIES.—JULY 1, 1881.

CONCILIATION WITH IRELAND.

“Mr. Fox stated, in a very eloquent speech which he delivered in 1797, the principles upon which he conceived the government of Ireland should be conducted. He stated, in his usual frank, it might be said incautious, manner, that he conceived that concessions should be made to the people of Ireland; he said, if he found he had not conceded enough he would concede more; he said that he thought the only way of governing Ireland was to please the people of Ireland, that he knew no better source of strength to this country; and he declared in one sentence, which I will read to the House, his wish with respect to the government of Ireland. “My wish is,' said Mr. Fox, “that the whole people of Ireland should have the same principles, the same system, the same operation of government, and, though it may be a subordinate consideration, that all classes should have an equal chance of emolument; in other words, I would have the whole Irish government regulated by Irish notions and Irish prejudices. And I firmly believe, according to another Irish expression, the more she is under Irish government, the more will she be bound to English interests.'"-LORD John Russell, in introducing the Irish Municipal Reform Bill, 1837.

I. The quotation from Fox which I have just written down, read in the light of existing circumstances, suggests some doubts whether on the whole either the temper or the vision of English liberalism in respect of Ireland is as good as it once was. If he found that he had not conceded enough, said Fox, he would concede more; he thought that the only way of governing Ireland was to please the people of Ireland ; he would have the whole Irish Government regulated by Irish notions and Irish prejudices. Can we imagine Mr. Forster or Lord Hartington or Sir William Harcourt talking in this way? On the contrary, what they habitually say is that they will not consent to hand Ireland over to Irish notions and Irish prejudices; that in governing Ireland, they must remember that at the same time they have to please the people of England; that they are willing to concede so much, but that nothing on earth shall induce them to concede an inch more.

Yet the further we are removed from the events in which Fox took part, the more conspicuously does that great man's far-sighted and courageous sagacity appear. It is true that his political principles did not bring him power, and it may be that a return to them would again exclude his party from office. It would
