Sir,— On the Bth and 9th of last month two letters appeared in the Evening Star against Home Rule for Ireland under the signature of “ Irishman,” In common with many others, I asked Who is “ Irishman ”? and challenged him to throw aside his now, de plume and boldly meet the champions of the cause he was assailing. But the great “ Sir Oracle ” of Irish politics is still silent. A whole month has passed away, and—except a promise that he intended shortly again to take the field —he has made no sign or manifestation. The inquiry was Who is “ Irishman ”? Now it is Where is " Irishman ”? Is he sleeping quietly among the dead men ? or is he reserving his strength till the “ mighty 4 Thunderer’ of Printinghouse square ” —more aptly christened by Cobbett “ the lying ‘ Times ’’’—hashes up another budget of forged letters to blacken the reputation of the representatives of the Irish people? If "Irishman” be not a myth let him buckle on his armor and fight manfully for his opinions.—l am, etc., E. S. Mantz. North-east Valley, June 4.
