Offences of intimidation in Ireland in 1880 numbered 1876, as compared with three in England and one in Scotland. There were 1139 malicious offences against property in Ireland, 88 in England, and 149 in Scotland. THE PRICE OF CORN has again gone up. Last week the average price of wheat was 54s. 5d. per quarter, or 12s. 3d. per quarter higher than during the corresponding week last year. This may be good news to the farmer, but it is bad news to the mass of consumers in the country. If people pay more for bread they will have less money to pay for other things. The unpropitious weather will not only be a cause of want, but a factor in political agitation during the coming autumn and winter.
