We are informed by a correspondent that Guy Lloyd Esq. Croghan, has called on all his tenantry to take leases of their holdings for twenty-one years. Such a procedure, strikingly at variance with the 'mopping out' being practised by a great number ot the landlords of this country, reflects the greatest credit on Mr Lloyd as a Christian and a landlord. We heartily wish that others would follow the example so nobly set them, and afford to the tenantry ia a Christian feeling the protection which as denied them by British legislation.
