" The spelling columns ill this Book appear to have been arranged au be cooslrucd h� meaning thai the people \eonld have no �i!Cll bl.�s, lhat they would I'oicihiy resist iliem if enacted hy the Legislatu.'�, Iheii indeed such an inseriiilion mrrsl be considered as illi '.;al ill all extreme degree, but if it m.erely ineaiil loe.vpress nn opinion that Ihc people di.~liked the Corn Laxs, thut tlo^ ui-hed nol for their euaclnienl or cootiunanee, and lespeet. folly 1 eciMtlniendetl Iheir opiiii.nis to the eniisiileratliui of llie Le/islatore, Iheu indeed Ihe case was illflrrcul, and (be in-seripiion haimless. Something had also been said of a C'-p of liberty. I know ifo.t what siguificaliun allaches to \\\\^ emblem in this pan of the couniiy, but in general I know ii is nol a sediiiuus symbol, for il is a etna I !y one of the insignia uf our t.'rowo, and is raiiltil about by an "ifficer uf stale al times of public procession where the King moves. Yon li;ive also iu tfviUenee lhal no p,ild\c or private business was slopped by the ineetiug: ibis stroog'y confirms Ihe opinion lhat no immedtale dansrer was conleuiplated by the meeting. Much of Ibe evidence bel'ore you wa� conversational. 1 think It iny duty lo state lo. you that this is Ibe very wur^l species of evidence ihiil can be leceivrd in a Court of .lusliee ; parties are liable lo coiislaiit misapprehensions respi cling cou-versati(ois; the alltralioii of a wird so alleis the tenor of expressions, and they make so u:f>erenl an impression .ip.m Ihe recollections of dill'ereiit puiple, Ibal lilt le reliance ein be placed upon ihem ; i tliereforealtacb little inipoitiinre to what Entwisllc says in t liis respecl, fori ibiiik i I  (.� is mistaken. il is, ihen, inneh more desirable to rest u|)on acts than words. As to the phrase used by a iiiao in the ciMiwd, " \Ve'll make a .Moseow of it," thai I iluuk uf little value, and nol to be charged on lb** meeting, for perhaps you will feel that a crowd so mixed u)i on that day wilb women and children, wa3 lill.le caleulaled lo eiiti r, at that time, into the views of incendiaries. If the object of this meeting was reform-mil Ibal il �a.i meant lo be pursued witbont any hrea( li of the law, then llie peo-pie had a right to remain and express their resoiiuioiin accordingly, so long as they kepi themselves within the pale of Ihe law. As lo the Iniking of arms, this could not liave been meant lo pre.seni oppo.vition to cavalry, lor the superiority of a maiion horsebaek wiiuld eiiable hiui lo surmount any such effort lo retard bis progress. Ii was\ecy probable lhat this arrangement alone took place to .'..'enie an open space iinmedialely aroniiil Ihe hustings."-The Learned Judge Ihen recapitulated the voluminons evidence given npou the trial, \^'ben be came to thai eif Mr. fluitoii, he remarked, be Ihoughl it probable Itial a .Magistrate, Uoow. in? the great responsibility intrusted tu him, and that drillings had been carrying on, aud that his imperious duly called n()on him lo act upon a sudden emergency, he thougiil it probable that a man so placed may be agitated, and nnt cool during the lime he was considering thai he might he-come highly criminal if he snflrriil such proceedings lo go lo such length as lo endanger lhe:-peace of Ihe town. Th.il witness stated Ibe depositions ^Ppecling the alarm of the inbabitauls; but here those depositions, if there were a million of them, conhi be of no avail; for the Jury were bound alone lo attend to vi-^a voce evidence given in upeo Court. Nadin'i slaleinint to Mr. Hulton may jusmy ihe falter in issuing the warrant ; hut then Ibe Courl aud Jury were placed in a silualipn of difficulty respecting the necessity of Nadin's application in the first instance, in conse. quencciif lhat person's uul being produced �u the wiluc-s' box. He believed .Mr. Hulton lo he a respectable man, who would not mislead them, but he must say, that such important evidence as he had given, ought nol lo be p'ermilied to want that corroboration which il might have had Iroiu bis brother Magistrates who were iu Ihe room wilb biii�, .aud from Nadin the coutiahle. ft was due to Ihe Difeodauls to urge ibis want of corrcei-'ded lo ihs lui-t-iogs to poll fir the youiiij C nidifiiite.
