LONDON, February 24

Sir Horace Pluhkett, in a letter to the newspapers, says the impression is gaining ground that part of Ulster may be excluded. If this is done half the inhabitants of "Ulster, and 99 per cent, of the people in the other provinces, will bitterly resent it, and it is doubtful if they will accept Home Rule on these Wms. . Economic thought in agricultural Ireland has advanced so rapidly in recent years that the interests of manufacture and commerce would be safe, though the'rural would outnumber the urban representation in the Assembly. ' . ,

A group of Liberals," including Mr Hamar Greenwood and Mr Eugene Wason, irritated by the Prime Minister's offer to modify the Home Rule Bill, have^ given notice of an amendment to Mr Falles's motion, calling on the Government to pass the Bill \mamended and take steps to protect the lives and property of the loyal ma- j jority. i 1 General Sir Arthur Paget, commander of the troops in Ireland, speaking at, a Dublin dinner, said:—" God forbid that it should be my lot to be ordered to move on the North. Many officers would hate the idea, but if the order comes, they know they must

obey."' Sir Edward Carson has issued a manifesto, which has been placarded throughout; Ulster. He denies that the volunteers are organised with a view to fighting their fellow-Uistermen: Their quarrel is with the Government, arid their whole object is to prevent forcible submission to a Dublin Parliament.
