A GOOD LANDLORD.

Cooldaniel near Macroom, July 13, 1847.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE CORK EXAMINER.
SIR,– You will confer a vast obligation on me by giving place in the next number of your Journal, to this brief but grateful recognition of mine of the considerate kindness of my Landlord, James Splaine, Esq., of Gurrane, in this county, who, on his estate on the lands of Cooldrihy, has forgiven all the tenants 25 per cent of last September gale, which he did not demand till this week. There is also a running gale which Mr. Splaine says he will not require as long as the tenantry will pursue the same industrial course they have hitherto adopted.

Such conduct is a palpable and practical introduction of the tenant right now so extremely agitating the public mind, and calculated, to a certain extent, to afford the agricultural classes a moral certainty of compensation for their incessant labours in the development of the resources of the land.

I am Sir, with profound respect truly yours,
JOHN HALLAHAN.
