The usual trick of those mock Public meetings is to arrange the mover and the Seconder of each Resolution. The Reader of the report the speaker of the unexpected and extemporaneous addresses Are also appointed and drilled so that after the parts Are cast the whole representation takes place exactly according to the rehearsal. The tissue of falsehood misrepresentation and abuse goes on most harmoniously without interruption or if any person who desires Freedom of debate should present himself to question or to it lie not convenient to put him Down at once he is promised a a hearing after the regular business shall have been gone through that is alter the whole of the proceedings shall have been irrevocably sanctioned.
