Judging from the ever increasing tide of ornate superficial literature that threatens to inundate the present age, a disinterested observer would naturally suppose the writers merely intended to please the eye, and to palm polished paper, elaborate typography and artistic binding, a substitute for interesting facts or fiction. Writers of all ages, especially of the present, might be compared to two species of well-known insects: butterflies and ants. The butterflies are indeed beautiful creatures, charming the eye as they flit from flower to flower, basking in the sunshine and sipping sweets which they did not make themselves: the ants, on the contrary, whilst being unseemly creatures, are tiny embodiments of thrift: they never purloin the fruit of other insects labor, and their little homes, however humble, are the creation of their own industry. The Author respectfully begs to be classified with the latter. If the subsequent pages do not reveal a wealth of talents, they are at least innocent of plagiarism: everything that has been borrowed is carefully labeled with the authors name or the source from which it emanated. In subscribing anam de plume, instead of our patronymic, we merely washed to divorce ourselves from every patronage which relatives or religion might invest in a name. .T he Author begs to state that during the past year he has conversed with several I rish Representatives and witnessed many of the events lie described.
