Boston Jesuit (Newspaper) - August 23, 1834, Boston, MassachusettsU7-2 Joyed a grand jury Bill which would insure the purity of the jury Box were the tithes the perpetual flowing Fountain of National misery completely abolished were the corporation abuses of Ireland annihilated still would the great and giant evil of the absence of the nobility and Gentry and All those and Chris hrs of National spirit and Genius and Energy be wanting Utida the cry for the restoration of her Domestic legislature be As loud As Ever. It has been boldly asserted that Ireland has grown in Prosperity since the enactment of the Union that her millions possess More comforts and enjoy n Grenter degree of happiness that their food and their raiment Hare vastly improved that when their nobility and Gentry resided among them they suffered every human privation and that since the Union Tiunis hed the former the population Rose in every Domestic Comfort objects of envy to the surrounding world. To be deeply injured is bad enough but for n nation like Ireland to lie insulted by such audacious falsehood is sufficient to drive the most patient people to madness. Your Petitioner challenges the is servers of such fallacies to the proof to into the Empi iry and your lion House will find that with the exception of a fragment of Ireland Belfast and its Vicinity the Trade of Ireland is in those articles which leave but Little of wealth to Ireland. That if the Corn and beef and Bacon and butter be exported that the produce of those articles never return to Ireland that such men As lord Limerick and lords Lens Downe and fits William and the Marquis of Hertford and lord Clifden and Many More like them receive the produce of Irish i hour and expend it any where but in Ireland that the population of Ireland with hut Lew exec it inns never eat the bread made from the Corn they Cullis note nor the Bacon nor the beef nor the butter they rear that potatoes and Salt Are their daily fare and that like the slave of the West indies the More they work the Grenter Siu entity of Corn they Rise the less of the consorts of life they enjoy they toil for foreigners and Are to Day not less destitute of the Means of comfortable sustenance than their fathers of a Century Back. As to manufactures Ireland with the exception of Belfast has none. Let the enquiry be had let the witnesses he brought to the bar of the House and your Petitioner pledges himself to establish the truth of the statement he now makes. If then these lie the facts if the statements made by the opponents of repeal be Gross delusions if truth be thus outraged nod insulted Why should Ireland cease to agitate and pour Forth the National Nind in Strong but respectful remonstrance against the continuance of such injustice 1 your Petitioner has heard with deep regret that ministers flatter themselves with the tranquil lion Tion of Ireland by the payment of the Catholic clergy and the probable diminution of their influence Over the minds and hearts of the Irish people. A More erroneous or unfortunate idea was never suggested nor acted upon. The most powerful magistrate in the preservation of the Pence of Ireland is the Irish Catholic priest lie commands the affections of the people and directs their understandings he enjoys their Confidence und they obey ids orders which always Lead to social peace kind feeling and loyalty to the government they rest Niu the vehemence of popular feeling cheer the people with Hope and perpetually inculcate obedience to the Laws and constituted authorities live them Glebe lands and Glebe houses make them even so far Independent of the people and nil their authority wholesome and useful As it now is will full to the ground there will exist the elements of a ferocious civil War in re trainable by any Power whatever. A a your Petitioner therefore imn lords your honourable House to throw open its doors once More to the prayer of Ireland to Grant her an enquiry into the effects of the Union on the happiness of her people and if she cannot establish the Justice and truth of her complaints then let her Fate be scaled and nil future struggles banished from the Public mind. A and your Petitioner will Ever Lawless the Jesuit. There was one passage in the petition in which he or. Of a could not entirely coincide with the Petitioner it was Tomt where lie expressed his gratitude to the single English member who Hud voted with the people of Ireland in the Inte Tecal division lie or. Of Connor believed the allusion was to the honourable member for Tiverton and to him his observations should apply. That lion member had at the time his or. warmest gratitude but n subsequent declaration made by him under the influence of a very improper and very unconstitutional speech of a Noble lord s in another place had caused him or. Of Connor to Cool considerably towards him. As he or. Of Connor was on the subject lie could not avoid doing Justice to two other English Mem Liers absent at the time front indisposition lie Lucuil the lion members for Oldham and Pontefract who would have voted if they had been present not alone for a committee of inquiry hut for a Diston mid substantive repeal of the Union. The lion and Learned inem Lier for Dublin scented to think that one discussion would suffice for the question of repeal hut lit this he or. O a could not agree with when he saw 110 later than last night a committee of the House granted he the government on a seven shilling Mantl cry an overcharge to that amount by some clerk of the Pence of some obscure Borough and when he saw committees daily granted for things As Trilling and As immaterial to the welfare of the nation he could not help thinking that Ireland in being refused one was hardly and tyrannical by treated. A Turnpike Hill n Road Hill any local Hill excited a Grenter interest in that House Tymn the entire affairs of the Irish Union. But he warned the House not to delude itself into a belief Tomt the question of repeal was yet decided. If in one election the number of members returned on the repeal had increased from four to forty what might it not be expected to increase in another he could assure them Tomt notwithstanding the columns of figures which the right lion. Secretary for the colonies offered to the starving Irish in place of Relief notwithstanding even the decision of the House to resist the question of repeal to the death the natives of that country would never cease till they had cast off the degradation of foreign control and asserted their right to govern themselves. He or. Of a was ashamed to bring before the House the extent of Irish grievances because they were so enormous Tomt lie a As often placed in a position which induced a disbelief of his statements on the subject. English members were not it All aware How things were to nudged in Ireland to what hitter hopeless misery the Fine people of that heaven favoured country were reduced by mismanagement and alien misrule. Hear hear and yet the House was to he called on to re enact the infamous coercion Bill As if anticipated famine and fierce political persecution were not sufficient for the wretched natives. Hear hear however the House might go on and the government proceed he could notwithstanding Tell them Tomt the feeling for Nat Inual Independence would never he extinct among the Irish people. As to the question of repeal being dead it was an Absurdity to think it. As Long ris he or. Of Connor had life and a seat in that House so Long should the question of repeal he a session Al question. As Long As he breathed so Long should the agitation of it be kept up not from any factious motive but simply from a belief Tomt an English parliament was incompetent to legislate for Ireland. He imputed no blame to English members but that arising from an innocent and unconscious cause namely ignorance. Indeed he thought them generally More honest than Many Hon. Members who on the strength of repeal had been returned to that House from his country a place they should never have been sent to and where they Imd no manner of business hut still he thought them incompetent to legislate for Ireland and thinking in he should never cease agitating repeal.
