There is not a crime against the coinmpnwealth of which a public man can be guilty that has not been chained ^lainst Mr. O'Connell, and thoiighu by the force of chicanery and impudence, he has e^^f^ eated himself firom these charges, we do irot knowjij^ajisr i instance in which he has been honourably acquitted^'ff-^  But enough of this fellow and his underhngs, whM:^-the adnunististion of public affairs.
