were ranked under the letter denomi there were diffingurfhirig then there was fomething of reality befides the name but indeed the name and dcctrrines Have been long ago exploded fo that one fcarce erer hears the pajjive divine hereditary and others even mentioned j or if they it is with that difguft d indignation which they juftly thefe nvcrds have been exploded it is melancholy to confider how much the principles have operated of late years Was not the arbitrary feizure of men and papers contrary to law a terrible proof to that the thing was not however the words were grown obfoltte If therefore there was any revival of the term it was becaufe the late miniftry feemed enforce their with fo little that we had nothing to expect from their continu ance in but the the favourite of Laudean or Tory What end then do the Miniftry pixpofe ib from nuik ing ufe of fuch odious diftinctions If they are ho neft and fee fuch odious principles as the Torys reviving into the moft terrible ought they not to oppofe them with vigour and reioluiion They eannot as fame of them have done in a former throw them like dull into Ihe eyes of our amiable and gracious and take ad vantage of his blindnefs to betray and ruin the na Paor AntiSejanus you arc ever ufmg pointed that can only iting when applied to patrons For I verily if there is any fet of men in the kingdom who would blind majeity and betray or ruin their they may be form ed from the late and you might be their Se cretary They would now fuhject themfelves to the ridicule of whole if they were to pre tend only to ftigmatize thofe who oppofe their mea with the opprobious name of You juft before charged them with reviving diftinctlon of Whig and and now threaten them with if they call their oppoiers Ja But fuppofing you and your patrons mould proceed in every ftep as if you were mies to prefent ftirrers up of fuch anarchy and confufion as mult be the prelude to the Stuarts ought not the Miniftry to have a watchful eye over you And if Jduits and Jacobites all concur in forwarding the meafures of your ought we to fear a little ridicule rather than the cenfure of at leaving fuch a herd tf monfters or with out a name dne to their proceedings Such a flimfy artifice as this can anfwer no Then why are you fo felicitous of avoiding the odium of if your meafures have been fo confiftent with the c

Tory difguftful to a Britifh ear and furely not without reafon as in its primitive fignification it carried with it an idea of flavery j an idea that is hocking to human and parti cularly abhorrent to the genius of our excellent con And this idea has been pretty much cultivated by you and your friends of The framinga big with much confufion and dif is certainly you becaufe you have authority to make it and for the fame the leaft oppcfition from thofe who were to feel the was and by termed if there is any meaning in you that the only way to enforce fuch au and fuch a is to butcher without
