Abstract: The decay of so many of their industries, and the persistent inadequacy of the remunerative employments remaining available for them, have weighed down the spirits of the Irish people for so many sad years, that a man must be very callous and very unintelligent who cannot sympathise with the wistful anxiety that is wide-spread in Ireland to aid in some way the promotion of an industrial revival in this country. Let us recollect that we are ten years behind England, which was itself already twenty years behind America. That will show us that we have no "new-fangled fad" to deal with. And as so many Irish youths go to America we may reflect what "hewers of wood and drawers of waters" they must find themselves condemned to be by the mere fact that they land in the New World handicapped by the total lack of that education which the Great Republic has so munificently provided for all the American youths.
