TBIYATK CORKLSPONDENCE. ,. , DUBLIN, Apbil 57 - Whether bdt effort tH he matV tm infrorltirr a mo dified poor - rate into Ireland, I do notjjf connc, pretend to know ; but the expectation that tome effort of the kind will be made in the next aeaaion appear to be pniygrnenu. inenimcrerna,ttaileTnt,prciueei no httie altrm tmonp - certain classes of the landholders : and should the attempt be made, the resistance, a far aa rowTing anu peutioiurig go, wui Do very strong. At the me time, or I am much mistaken, the sute of the peasantry consequent upon the Disfranchisement nu ana me suo - ictung Act, wm lore Uie condition ot the population upon the attention of the (Government. It would be idle to deny U, and it U right at this early period that Tk Timet should acquaint Uie British public with the ttate of the rase, that at this moment the tenantry of Ireland, from the farmer who holds 400 or 1 ,000 acres, to the cottier who occupies a mud - cabin on the road - aide, are rendered by the operation of these two bills the absolute slate of Uie proprietors of the soiL By the Disfranchisement Bill, the inferior classes of the tenantry are no lonctr of the least use to the landlords for electioneering purposes, and will be dislodged accordingly as opportunities offer, from Uicir botdiues, without any compunction The ittem, indeed, nad been previously put in practice under the ouo - ietnng Act, out it Kill receive an impulse irom the late bill, which can only be arrested bv apprehen sions ayuuifr lrom Uie nrobaUlity of a re - acuou by " Captain Itock " l ith rcsnrct to the fanner, or, at they usetltobecalled,the middlemen, the Sub - letting Act has opened nine - tenths of the leases in Inland by repealing the legal treurrr, which was constantly construed by the Judges in favour of the tenant , so that not only are they precluded from sub - letting hereafter, but they have become liable to all the penalties provided by the bill for sub - letting before it became a law A revolution, therefore, with regard to the relations of landlord and tenant, is commencing, the conreciuencvs of which it is difficult to calculate As to the principle of the Sub - letting Act in this respect, 1 do not deny that in an earlier stage of sockty, and wltl, another land of population, it might possibly have been a good one , nor will I rhamrte that the practice of cut - timr un estates lias nrovexl iniunons to die landlord, and contributed to spread a pauper population through the country. I he rtimcuity is to deal with that population, and to apply a principle which in its oiieralion now will render the landlords as powerful at if they were feudal proprietors, while it leaves the mrfs without protection, and eren without a home These observations have been suggested to me, by learning, as I do from various quartern, that a great stimulus baa been giwn to rents in ocry part of Ire land I bis, considered in itself, may be taken as a proof of increasing coufidenre, and would, if the country were circumstanced as hngiand K be an evidence of agricultural prosperity hether it can be to con - siucrcu in jrciana, is, i mink, qucsuonauie vi in tame time it is to be observed, that the demands for land do not come from the cottiers, but from persons who are considered in this country as wealthy farmers, that is to say , men who have stock, snd who are ready to take from 3(H) to SO0 acres of land 1 ou will judge of die impulse when I tell ) on, that for land which last year was set for I, an acre,l have been offirrd and refused This rise, operating in the face of the terrible depres sion wnicn tne traac oi tne country is surxenng, wiu appear extraordinary in England , but in a country al most entirely agricultural, it may be considered as a matter of course, growing out of the tranquillity of the country W hether it can continue, while the orrrencv is in the process of contraction, and all other interests appear, as it were, water - locked, jou will lx able ) our sell to decide That some measure, either of poor laws or of colonisation, must be adopted, with respect to the peasantry of this country, it the conviction of all men who gie the subject any consideration. The Times nas done much for Ireland , and we have incurred a dtbt to your journal which we shall never be able to discharge, except by that lively gratitude which I know is universally felt. But I am mistaken if your task, in our regard is done WESTMINSTER SCHOOL. TO THE EDITOK OP THE TIMES. Sir.

His prosrrest in the art of boxing was amazing he was considered one of the very best of what are called "the light weights , but in the course of hi probation as a fighter he showed another taste which led hurt into many serious em - barrasament It wat ccrainly but a natural step from one ring into tne other, and tnen into ,wrate In tlie year irlK, according to the prison books, Hawkins wa committed to the (j ltapur - street Compter, for two years, for stealing a silver watch, chain, and seals, from a gentleman, lie wa then II year old, and he conducted himself with great propriety during the wlwle perod of his cannrie - menr. I le gave a sample in the Compter of the singular activity which he afterwards displayed on dangerous occasion, and of the retolate tpmt which those who know him have not faded to describe in tern s of the most enthusiastic admiration. Sme labourer were employed at the top of tbe prison in making tome repairs, and Hawkins aaked permission to av.ist them, as they were in want of a hand. The governor (Mr. Tearue) consented, and the young prisoner mounted to the lop of the gaol m an instant ; ard spying a swallow's nest in a corner, which it was impossible to reach without imminent danger of being dashed to pieces, be mad a spring, and reached the spot. The brra flew out, and Hawkm darted along the ledges, and from plank to plnk,f - ter it, aa if the flight wa not a yard from the ground. This specimen was mute enough to convince the governor, that ifhis prisoner should have any opportunity afforded to him, he would not hesitate to give " leg bail for his appearance, and a sharp; watch waa kept over bjt motions. Upon leavrar the prison n June, 1S1B, he received assistance trom tome of the fancier of fight, and he frequented all the well - known " flash cribs' about town. He might have supported himself bv the exhibition of hi skill as a pugihst, but nature was to powerful within him, a to exercise an undivided control over hit mind.

In the ease to wnicn i reir, a collector, woo wan, I iinn.aee. for unu reason or other hirh in favour with the Commissioners, (for I understand it i not the custom to allow so large a balance to remain with these rerttlemen), ha absconded, having funds in his hands to tlie amount of nearly 3,000V, winch turn, it not being posnble to recover H of hit surrtu - x. thr inhabitants are now called upon to pay.

" trouble," committed several offences, which he wa candid enough to avow, and he admitted that he deserved punishment for his past life. He, however, always had an insu - pcrabJe objection te trantr tation. Upon bemg landed in New fcouth Tales, he began to think ef the mean of re turning aad finding; that a vessel was about to sail for London, be immediately act to work, but was suddenly minaed from the xdaca in which he wa lodred that he rmrht be raited with a master. As transports have often ndea. routed to hide themselves on board vessel about to nil for Ens - land, the eastarnt of shiD readr lo droart are in thr hahit of lumrgating the bold with sulphur. This aoon compel a convict wno may nave concealed nimsel! to come ibrtn, and any one caught under such curumstance is subject to nn. mediate punishment. In thit instance the ship was fumigated, the hold wat a complete sulphurous fog ; even the sailors on deck were scarcely able to endure the atmosphere. The captain stood over the hatches, and called aloud Below, but no answer wat returned. Cover toe hatcnes,then, said the captain, " let ut kill all the rat. The order wa obeyed. and many a rat breathed his ust. Un the day after the ship put out to tea, the tailor were surprised lo find a stranger at mesa. Who tbe devQ are voo ?" said they to a young fellow tn a HaDc dies. Hush," said he, " I am just entne from below t I went down to look after the rata, and I'm blowed if there's one of 'em ahve. The captain wa immediately apprized that he had an unexpected customer, and considering that a man who would undergo so dreadful a fumigation from a mere lave of hit country wat no common person, ordered trial ne should be kept in irons. Hawkins nevar murmured, but as toon ss tbe vessel reached Woolwich, he contrived to slip down, nont and alL into tha nver, and to tim ashore He toon reached Deptfbrd, where hit brother resided, and having been released from his irons, be walked up to the metropolis, but did not show himself for mine time A he wa by this time pretty well known to tbe pohee, he thought the moat prudent trade for him to follow wa the country trade. He went round to the great country towns and levied contributions very liberally, and be wa punctual in hi attendance at brat or all sorts man - hgnes, dog. fights, cock tights, eke. die. At last an active police officer received information from " .Mile boy,, that Hawkins would be at M cyhill - tair at Andover. There he wa found sure enough, prepared for action. He wa conveyed to town, rned at the Old Bailey foe tbe capital affenc of returning from transportation, convicted, and sentenced to be hanged. Thit sentence wat commuted for transportation for life, and oi the Hih of December, IrtTJ, he wa put mto a van at Newgate, with several other convicts, in order to be taken to shecmcaa. The night on which the van set out wa dark and atormv, and a soon a it reached shooter's - hiD, IIawktn,wbo ha 1 procured a key with which be opened hi irons, gently dropped from me van and escaped through the field, lie had previously given the key to hi companion, and fare of them were just upon the move when the flight of Hawkm wat discovered. The attendant of course chose rather to prevent any more escape than to follow tuch a traveller a Hawkins, who made the best oi his way to the north, and earned on the game there for some tune without interruption. II then visited Liverpool, where he was apprehended foe some tndrrrjr ot. fence, convicted, and sentenced to un peisonnient forouemotuh. The Governor of Newgate having heard at what place be sojourned, sent for him at the expiration of his term, and sent him off with s batch of convicts to sbeemess. Hawkm re. rruuned for some time at the hulk at that pliee and wat about ' three months ago tent under an adequate guard to the convict thipjutt about to tail from bpilhead to ew south H ales. He was then supposed to be out of the reach of good hick. Hu extraordinary charaetcrwas made known to the captain and crew, and tuch measures were adopted aa would in an ordinary case have been ridiculous, to prevent escape. The ele - mentt of Hawkins's prosperity were not, however, jet dissolved. His name was in vain called over upon the general master Hawkins was nowhere to be bund, and au that could he said was, that a bum - boat had pasted along an hour before, and made foe the shore vilh great tpeed. When Hawkia was questioned the last tune he was in Newgate about his escape from New South ales, he declared tolemnly that aa he lay in the hold of the vessel, almost soiled with tbe sulphur, he taw the rats falling dead around him ; that he wa determined to die in the hold rather than stay on shore, and that, in hit attempts to escape, he never underwent, except from the overpowering tolphur, the least annoyance or inconvenience. This fellow' escape were alway heard of at the pugilistic houses before ihey were thought of elsewhere. SOLOMON, THE AUTHOR OP THE ILIAD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES. Sir.
