The following address, made by the
Chief Justice to the Kilkenny Grand Jury, on the opening of the assizes, presents a deplorable picture of the state of the country:
"It is impossible to read the papers of the day without seeing such pictures of the guilt which has disgraced the southern part of Ireland, as cannot but shock every humane and manly feeling. My experience of what recently passed in the county of Limerick, while officially engaged there, enables me, however, to say, that the newspapers presented but a faint and feeble picture indeed of the atrocitics which were committed there. The peasantry had actually taken possession of the county-the gentry were obliged to seek protection against the most atrocious violence, by converting their own houses into garrisons-society, no longer secure from the encroachments of outrage, was completely disorganised-the daily repetition of crimes the most revolting, plunder, burnings, murder, the frequent in fliction of torture, gave a character of peculiar horror to the crimes of the infatuated peasantry and all, in a word, that is most disgraceful to human nature was to be found in their excesses."
From these scenes, we turn, with pleasure, to the accounts from various parts of the kingdom, most of which concur in stating instances of an improved disposition on the part of the peasantry, and in holding forth hopes of returning tranquillity.
