IRELAND.

Want alone is not the only calamity which is likely to spread its ravages in this ill-fated country, for she is now also threatened with all the evils flowing from the extension of contagious diseases. It is probable this last misfortune is a consequence of the first. It is almost unnecessary to observe, that' the public atten.

tion should be earnestly directed to this subject, when it is remembered that nearly 100,000 persons perished of contagious diseases in this kingdom after the scarcity of 1817 and 1818.

Several curious documents have lately been discovered at the venerable residence of the Earl of Howth, by Mr. Hardiman,

well known as an intelligent antiquarian, and author of the history of the town of .Galway, while making some investigations for his Lordship, many of them as ancient as the reign of King John, some in the time of Henry II. and one, which Mr. Har.

diman stated to be anterior to the landing of that monarch, being a grant from Law. rence O'Toole, consecrated Archbishop of Dublin in 1162, and afterwards canonized. This is supposed to be one of the oldest documents in Ireland, and with the others was found in a leaden box, which is itself a curiosity, being some centuries old. They are all in a state of the highest preservation.
