dc.description.abstractThe chief benefit which the Incumbered Estates Act has conferred upon Ireland, has been the substitution of solvent for insolvent proprietors To appreciate the full extent of this change, we must raise our views above the notion of considering the ownership of land as a mere right for the convenience of the person who happens to possess it. It is in truth a high office, carrying with it great power and influence, and forming the basis of a large part of our arrangements for local government. This view of a landlord's position assists us in explaining the anarchy and disorganization of Ireland for the past half century. A large part of the governing classes were in a false position. Hence the want of confidence between different classes, hence the attacks on the character of the people, hence the delusive theories to account for the state of the country, and hence the opposition to all changes and improvements.en
