IN undertaking this publication at present, we are sensible that many objections will, in all probability, be raised against it, both by the pres tended friends, and the open enemies of Reform. The former, who are always to be found in the ranks of the timid, half-and-half gentry, will say, that it would have been better for us to have allowed the transactions of 1819-20 to go into oblivion, or remain entirely forgotten. And the latter, who are always to be found in the ranks of bigotry and oppression, will say, that we are holding up public approbation the actions of demagogues and convicted traitors f

Blessings on the French Revolution Blessings on that mild and paternal government which now exists, and may it long continue to exist in England But blessings thrice over on the People themselves! We want words to express the delight we feel, at the mere knows ledge dge of the fact, that there are no longer any Sidmouths or Castlel reaghs in the liberal and enlightened Cabinet of William the Fourth otherwise, we think, from what we have already written, and still, if tromis lubong zond oilt ni tqod ng 12ydrodií to gainɔ 9.lt of oldatovat
