“pat on the back," as it were, wretches drunk with power, ready to exercise their dastard ferocity upon man or child-does he hold it right to say, in substance, to savages like these, “it is but twenty years, since, if you walked those streets, you would have no protection in the law against the men who were then your masters, and who are now surrendered to your power.” If this were truth, would not a merciful man conceal it? How can any man hope to be pardoned, who utters such an incendiary suggestion ? If Mr. Hall said that there was an occasion upon which Protestants who celebrated the July anniversaries, dishonoured them, we could understand him, and think it possible that he was not altogether without evidence to support his assertion ; but to cite the one disgraceful fact as a characteristic specimen of the times he writes of, is a crime for which there is no excuse to be found in the circumstances of either the present times or the past.

We are heartily tired of our task, and thoroughly disgusted with the subject of it. Mr. Hall's “ Letter to Temperance Societies" is a wantonly wicked production. It is not calculated to effect one possible good, and it is conceived and executed in a spirit which the loyal men of Ireland must feel to be extremely irritating. With a most perverse adroitness, Mr. Hall has contrived to offend and provoke all classes upon whose loyalty the crown would be justified in relying, and to encourage in their lawless designs, the masses, whose disaffection is to be feared. He reminds them how much they have obtained in recent times—how much they were, as he affirms, oppressed and wronged in the times of old-he thus prepares them for the agitators, who will take advantage of his representations, and will, if they permit them to be read, argue from them that, while Roman Catholics were patient and submissive to the laws, they were cruelly oppressed and wronged—and that the seasons of agitation, disorder, and crime, were those in which England was persuaded to do them justice. The time of their tranquillity was the time of those penal laws, of which Mr. Hall appears to execrate and abhor the remembrancethe period marked by a series of concessions, in which their rights were gradually, little by little, yielded to them, was the period also marked in

blood by their excesses—the period, during which a conspiracy for the severance of Ireland from Great Britain, and for the extermination of Protestants, was known to be in terrific operation. Mr. Hall's pamphlet states the premises from which agitators can reason to conclusions like these, and, inas. much as he instructs the repealers, that they have still “ wrongs to be redressed,” he furnishes grounds for applying such conclusions to practical uses. The argument, as made out between Mr. Hall and the agitators, as addressed to the repealers, may be thus stated :- You, repealers, belong to a people who were oppressed, insulted, and most grossly wronged, so long as they were obedient to the laws and dutiful to the sovereign,—who obtained their rights, or such portion of them as they now enjoy, only by vio. lence, or in seasons of conspiracy and insurrection. Rights are still withheld from them—they still “ have wrongs to be redressed." Thus far, Mr. Hall and the agitator, harnessed in the same falsehood, run amicably, side by side. How is redress to be attained ? Here the associates may divide :-- the argument, however, is all with the agitator.

Upon the want of wisdom, and generosity, and justice, manifested towards the loyal men of Ireland—the adoption of the tone employed by agitators and repealers—"God grant that the fierce spirits of the black north may be held in, now, and for ever" — " and the yeomanry, craving to be let loose :” on the spirit in which expressions like these are applied to a gallant race, who have no worse desire, than to defend themselves, and support the laws of their country—(whose forbearance, under circumstances of extreme difficulty, won the warm eulo. gies of Wellington, and Lyndhurst, and Brougham, and Peel, and a host of statesmen, whose names are honour, and whose praise is renown)-We make no further observation. If Mr. Hall has written on his own account, his strictures may be left without a comment_he was not worthy to know the men whom he has calumniated. If he has written as one of the agents employed to carry out Lord L's scheme, we warn the noble lord, that, in the employment of such men, he is abusing the trust reposed in him, and betraying the cause of which he has, too rashly, assumed to be the patron.
