Abstract: In September, 1867, at the request of the Council of the National Association for the Promotion of Social Science, I read a paper at the Belfast Congress in answer to the question, " Should the Local Government Acts be extended to Ireland ?" which was printed in the Transactions of the year; and at the same meeting a valuable paper was read by Mr. Anderson on Irish Municipal Government, calling attention to the defective provisions of the Towns Improvement (Ireland) Act, 1854; stating that the Act and its incorporations now embrace more than 900 sections, and recommending consolidation; and suggesting that these towns should be exempt from county cess, and bound to keep their streets in order at their own expense. Two years' volumes of statute law have been issued since I read my paper, and I propose now to call your attention to such acts as bear on the question already proposed.
