Illustration from "Great Gun", 21st May, 1845.
Printed text l.c.: Mr. Hume will move for a call of the House. He wishes to call spirits form the deep; but will they come when he calls them? Dan says no. Whilst Repale [sic] is creeping at a snail's pace, the Rent is pouring in into his plate, and he will therfore not quit his kennel in Merrion-square. He will not accept the parliamentary invitation to "Come o'er the sea," but will warble in Tara's-hall "Home, sweet home! there is no place like home."
