      BALLINA CHRONICLE
      Ballina, Mayo, Ireland
      Wednesday, March 13, 1850

      The Poor Law Commissioners, by circular to the Guardians of Unions in
      Ireland, recommend Buenos Ayres as a field for emigration. The price of all
      labour of all kinds is excessive, and there is an especial demand for that sort
      of labour which the Irishman is peculiarly adapted to supply, such as hedging,
      ditching, and all other agricultural work, cattle keeping, farming, and the
      driving of flocks from district to district. Many proprietors have stated their
      willingness to enter into engagements to receive any number of Irish emigrants,
      and to employ them permanently from the day of their landing, at £4 per month,
      maintaining them at the same time as well as contributing to the expense of the
      voyage.
