Coriv law rhymers, and wild Irishmen, and dandy philosophers, with scented pocket-handkerchiefs in their hands j and sounds of sedition upon their lips, are but poor substitutes for such men as Cgbbett, or even as Hunt. These Radicals of the olden time knew how to. hit.the sympathies of the multitude. They talked about beef an A bacon^about bayonets and the hangman, showing forth with solid emphasisj and singular plausibility, that,government made'provisions ,de^, and punishment abundant. But' in these days our, Radicals mince philo-v sophy, and poetii^, and pohtical economy, and alt that sort of pretended intellectuality, which is a sort of stuff that the crowd cares nothing about. The truth' is that our Radicals have been spoiled by,bad asspciation. They have been worse than cheated by the Whigs; for these place.^hunting charlatans have inoculated them with detestable affectatiohsj and the Radicals talk a jargon which is more like Whipgery run mad, than the demands of impatient men, asking for that of which they understand the use and the benefit, but only forgetting, the impossibility that they should have it.. "We repeat, that the meeting to demand**the People'sjGharterV appears to have been, in every way, a failure! and it will no doubt be sneered at*' accordingly by those who' are engaged in the noble task of upholding her Maj.esty?s Whig ministers. , With the usual fairness of the, honest "public iristmctors," whor serve the Wliigs, they will abuse those whom they have cheated, for having so ineflDiciently resented the fraud. Now, whatever faults the Radicals may have, the Whigs have certainly no right to accuse them of any. The, ^eatest fault of the Radicals is that they fixed the Whigs m office. In elevating these selfish political impostors to the direction of the government they not only inflicted feebleness, dishonour;: and perplexity upon the public affairs of the couhtrvi but they ruined "themselves as a' party. They can do nothing now but make a con-^' temptible demonstration in Palace-yard, and get abused by those upon whomcthey have conferred everything. Let them bestir themselves, and show some vigour aihd {ibility in putting down Whiggeiy, which is but another name'for low political craft and desperate cheating iw high places, if the principles they stand upon have any soundness in them, they will stand a fair ."ind open conflict with Tory principles, which are the opposite. But everything gets clouded and mystified, and Radical principles, such as t1n?y are, have no foir play, while one !^a^d of the Whig government is busy in "bribing the manageable^ part of the Radicals^ and the other is employe^in WritingU'^' sneers against those who refuse to be manage^* Thp*~ ' Radicals have thoroughly disgraced themselves 1jyth� connection with the 'Whi^s, and the Whigs take ady6lijja| of this to treat them,with contempt. Ifthe: Eadi^cis.. rt'ish to recover their position, it must be by a very dif-; ferent sort of demonstration against.the poUtieal*frauds and feebleness of the Whigs>'from that which; took pl,ae^ in Palace-yard. � ^ * .......a ;
