The Orange movement amp the Parsons a a Nerer did Bare and Rollen in icy Colour her working with such deadly to disposed in mock the conservative to should loll them that they Are now the True destructive mid their title inti n Wiick nine. Ill Wonit Timve they preserved their most cherished abuses or where is their resting Tiit is not doomed by the fact t hut it is so to attack wherever they move the Negev step of Reform pursues them. Like the tinkering and out Civ of vultures Over Entrum their presence denotes corruption. Their Protection provokes assault mid their defence is thus they have destroyed the Rotten boroughs the House of lords totters under their influence the pension list is in near peril in spite of the whigs and they have levelled n most effective hotter a of Gold against the in Tionel debt in disregard of apostolic principles ten Bishops have been torn from the Irish Church establishment and having extinguished tithes they Are now starving the Parsons nay they have marked out the absentees themselves Lor attack As the speech of or. Boyton at their late great meeting can testify and it will not he their fault if rents mud tuxes Are not speedily lessened. In Short were their merits not up tits involuntary their services to the Public would entitle Llie in to our special admiration. Let us Hope then that their present activity May continue Long enough to goad and guide us on to the path of Freedom for else we Lear our Advance would lie hut sluggish. Their last great movement hns been the rejection of the tithe Bill which secured to the clergy a greater income in safety than they Ever extorted amid hate and pet a i by nil the oppression they Practised. Gloss it As they May in sober Earnest we believe it now requires no inspired exposition to convince them of the ruinous Folly of that step though its frightful consequences arc not vet fully developed. The nost direct destructive could not have ensured so certainly the downfall of the Church As these conservatives have done and would that this were the Only evil it must produce or that its patrons might he its Only victims the proceedings with which this step was followed up has been rashly regarded As still More important but in fact it tins been a signal it has accomplished no purpose Lor which it was intended it bus realized no Hope or project of those who promoted it but on the contrary it ims done incalculable mischief to the party and they now feel it. As a Muster and display of the rank and wealth of the party the conservative convention in Dublin might he of considerable consequence to them hut even in this respect it was n failure. If we mistake not the peerage of Ireland consists of nearly two Hundred and fifty members and yet excluding some Hal dozen Junior scions of nobility but twelve or thirteen out of the entire attended and these with two or three exceptions were Ruther the Par Venus of the peerage than the inc enl nobility of the land there were hat three titles aiming them older than half a Century and u few so old besides these magnates there were three or Lour Baroness As Tunny City knights and half a dozen members of parliament and the crowd was clue Fly composed of clerical functionaries or those whose families derive support from the Church. Ilow far was Surh i an assemblage calculated to impress Public opinion Ritli respect t what control Enn it exercise Over the measures that engrossed its attention we deny utterly that it represented the substantial Power or prevailing opinion of the country. Thu great body of the j landed Gentry stood aloof on the occasion and we defy the combined exertions of Liliu entire i party that utter idea to influence the free a Otey of hat a tithe of the Irish constituency. Did the exigency of the times require it we Are confident that an assemblage far Superior ill ii array of rank and infinitely greater in wealth nud Raul Power in the Community could he speedily convened in opposition to the objects of this convention. It is not however in this manner that the question Between them and the Irish people is now to he determined. The Day has gone by when a crusade of Orange fanatics could excite alarm or provoke retaliation. When they bluster of their Power we will Challenge them to the hustings and when they talk to us of their wealth we will remind them that not a Hundred of them could afford to give a dinner to their Seq Gish apostle. M in Cheuca. They Are in fact n needy and grasping faction rendered desperate because they can no longer pillage the Public w Ith impunity their very outcry is Flint they Are prevented from plundering under the Sanction of Law and it is scarcely to he wondered Tyml such frantic insolence should fail to excite the sympathy of those w to have no interest ill its Success. We have no intention of discussing minutely proceedings so devoid of rational object or important consideration is those adopted by this meeting. The resolutions comprised the vague declaration of certain general principle a Inch none but this party Ever disputed and tie assertion that they Are exposed to certain grievance nud foul designs so preposterous nud impossible Llma we scarcely know whether we should most laugh ill the Absurdity of the charges or deplore the besotted ignorance and lug Norv that dictated them. The grog inconsistencies however which equally distinguished them nil the speeches delivered present us with in admirable exemplification of the True character of the party. In one breath they boast of their loyalty nod the favour of their gracious King a Viole they indirectly menace him the loss of head if their designs should be opposed. They Tell us of tins expansive Potter and irresistible might of protestantism to Hill they mourn Over the downfall of their Church. They talk of the tolerant principles of their religion. And the Universal Freedom it promotes in civil institutions while Llic deplore the restitution of their fellow citizens to a fraction of their civil rights nil proclaim the destruction of the Constitution from the equal Extension of it privileges to nil its subjects. They taunt 11� with their strength and numbers while they exec rate a commission for enumerating them a n plan to expose their weakness. They Challenge us to the Field and talk of bayonets and re conquering the country w bile they implore Protection Ngai ust our Power. They charge the authorities with a hostile administration of the Laws while almost every functionary from the attorney general to the humblest police Constable belong to to licit party and every Bench from the four courts to the lowliest Petty a Casious but Al is filled with retainers. They sneer at our poverty and compare it proudly with their own vast wealth and magnificent liberality while they a tech Over the wants of their beloved clergy and Tell us with pitiful horror that their beloved pastors Are perishing. They reproach us with their Beneficent Charity and Laud their own piety while they cheer to the very Echo the proposal to drive seven or eight million of human beings from the soil of their forefathers to exterminate them that a twentieth of that number May vanish in in free and Sublime consciousness that not a single papist no Pir Tiou tints the atmosphere Between Thorn and the beaten Thuy boast of thu changeless purity of their Faith nil the heavenly origin of their Church while they Grant Ely fore ode its Tiller destruction if tithes should lie abolished such Are a few of the leading principles and statements actually propounded and adopted at this meeting and surely it requires but thus to remove their screen of verbiage to make even those who uttered them ashamed of their Folly and atrocity. The first consideration they suggest is Are such sentiments such deadly schemes sanctioned by the great body of the protestants of Ireland ? for our of n port the indignantly reject the suspicion. M e do nut Hiilei Gedly believe that no protestant not thoroughly imbued with the sanguinary and bitter spirit of Orange ism can contemplate them Wolmut horror they Are As revolting to the common feelings of our nature is they Are in consistent with the principles of the Cliris Linn Creed mud none but a reckless faction regardless alike of humanity and religion could conceive them or venture to clothe them in expression. But the preacher of those doctrines Are chiefly in st is of the protestant Church they Are invested with the snared office of gods ministry. Arc these the lessons they teach their flocks do they mingle these feelings with the solemn riles of religion 1 do Olliev inculcate them from the it Vul Sanctuary of the ii tar these Are questions which the denounced millions will assuredly ask of each other and w lint shall lie the answer Shull they receive it in the mercies of the wretch wlm a hotel hns been of ctn its scanty and squalid comforts to inn Eicr the Stronn res luxury ? or must they Appeal to the landlord s care of the poor he has received As an inheritance whose mouldering Cabins and desolate Fields filled with the brutes he hns preferred betray How faithfully they have served their Rountry and their god we speak with in affects de anxiety 011 this Point Anil to these question what mistier must be Given to the people ? it require that answer from the rational and upright the religious and patriotic protestants of Ireland. Me require it for their own a a pcs. Silence in the consciousness of guiltless Ness will not suffice they must repudiate these principles As openly is they hate been avowed a they must teach to licit countrymen and the civilized world to distinguish Between them and the ruthless Savage fanatics who Hove thus disgraced the human race. There never was a time when the protestant of Ireland were so imperatively called upon to place to licit real principles fully before the Public Eye. A foul Stein has been Flung on to licit character is citizens and christians by their on 11 Brethren and by themselves alone must they be vindicated.
