PEASANT PROPRIETORS IN IRELAND. The Times publishes the following letter Sir,-You may not be aware that in many districts in Ireland Peasant proprietorship has already had a trial, with what result the following facta will prove :— Thirty years ago the commons of Whiteleas, a large tract of excellent laad, was entirely owned and occu- pied by small fee-Bimple proprietors. How they originally obtained their holdings I cannot inform you but at that time their land was miserably culti- vated, the owners lived in wretched cabins in the greatest possible destitution, a positive disgrace to this flourishing neighbourhood. When the potato famine occurred these poor people were only too glad to accept anything they could get for their land and to emigrate, and the few that now remain are the poorest people in the country. By degrees the small holdings have been amalgamated and the land now sells for £100 an acre. Similar experiments have been tried in other places in Ireland and have invariably pro- duced similar results. — Your obedient servant, WILLIAM KENNEDY.—Giganstown, County Kildare.
