THE IRISH RELIEF FUND.
To the Editor.
Sir, —Can you give subscribers any information respecting the amounts which were collected towards the above fund, as it would appear from the reticence of the committee appointed to collect the same, and the treasurer —whose duty it should have been to publish a statement long ere this —that they have gone eternally to sleep on the matter, and never more intend to awaken ? I am given to understand, however, that his Worship the Mayor is treasurer of the fund. If so, perhaps he will condescend to inform subscribers of the amounts he has received, from what sources they came, and whether he has seen fit to carry out his original idea of ‘ ‘ telegraphing it direct to the Lord Mayor of Dublin, and so have brought Ashburton into prominence before the Irish nation,” or whether he has disposed of it in any other legs assuming way, or whether it still remains in his careful keeping. I am, &c., Subscriber.
