The Irish papers in the United States, commenting upon the Irish Land Bill, submitted by Mr Gladstone’s Government, eugolise the measure as a statesmanlike effort to grapple with the difficulties of the Land Question of Ireland. They consider that the Bill, with some amendments in point of detail, should meet with the steady support of the Irish people. A proposal has been submitted for the consideration of the Cabinet, emanating from Germany and Russia, for the extradition of political criminals. In the communication, stress is laid upon the recent Nihilist and Socialist outrages, which, it is maintained, are of an heinous nature, and that their political character should not be allowed to protect criminals from vengeance if they should succeed in escaping to other countries.

April 23.

The Irish Land League’s Convention, which is now sitting in Dublin, purpose considering the new Irish Land Bill, and have condemned the emigration clauses of the Bill.
