It commenced by alt.ukitig the pre�s-it then attacked the common r glit of ail men lo keep arms for their defence-it aliacked the riglit of one lieighbour to meet with i.noiher to consider the tendency of pnblicquestions.

Such was the state indeed of that Puilinment, that even ail ihose who were considered the best friends of freedom could atlaiii, was, that the people should only wear their chain* for five years. He would ay, that such a Parliament was not only a nuisance but an imposture. It had been ofieii observed, that of the dead they ought to say nothing but the good. *kn old moralist bad improved that saying by declaring, that of the dead only tiie truth should be uttered. It would be difficult to discover what good had been dotie to the |ieople, at least by the last Parliameiit; there coul.l be no doubt tliey had done some fur themselves.- -(Hear, hear,lit the people they had nol uidy cainpromised their rights and liberties for the present age, bsit in many instauces for all posterity. The most extraordinary sign of tbe present times Was, that such a Parliament was nut perfectly understood. That its majoriiy acted in it had don*-, was not matter of wonder; but tliat other and honourable men should be willing enough in sober sadness, and with the best intentions', to hujie any thing from such a body, was lo biin most extraor-dioary ; yet tbey knew men eutilled to this tribute of their respect, entertained such visionary notions. They bad seen �n excellent and patriotic young Nobleman (Lord John llussell) make an eloquent allusion to the magic with which the British Con-stituliou worked in its practical effect. That able and patriotic young Nobleman, iu the enthusiasm of his adulation, had compared it to ~ Aladdin's l.imp, which none would be found to exchange for any other. It was to be regretted that such a delusion should influence this patriotic individual.- It was true, that in one respect it had tlie magic- of the lamp in live Arabian Tales ; it had its iiiugniti-cent palaces, its Corinthian columns, which weie, according to Mr. Burke, the prop* of polished society, its lofty porticos supporting a noble aiid teeming goodly roof. Tbe spectator loo, when he sutveyed the splendid pile, neither knew how it came there nor how long it would stay, but wiieii he got up one murniog he found t!ie whole had va-iiished.

For ao saying, he proB'er-ed no excuse, for fear the Hon. House should mistake any such thing for an apologj'. But if ha bad conde-fcended to make any such excuse, he should have s^id, his whole case had been entirely mistated.
