tional objections—the objections which can neither be removed nor compromised—are first, the alteration of a fixed constitutional principle—the severance of the franchise from beneficial property-and secondly, the overthrow of the landmark of the Relief and Reform bills, so lately and so solemnly fixed and recognised as inviolable by all the parties to those great national compacts;these are what we trust the House of Commons—which has already admitted the second reading by a majority of only fivewill never, when it comes to consider the whole bearings of the question, persist in sanctioning—these are sacrifices of principle and good faith-which we are confident the House of Lords can never sanction, and which the people of England will never tolerate.
The unanimous applause with which the whole Radical and Chartist press have received the bill is no doubtful indication of its real merits and expected effects; and Mr. O'Connell has told the House that the measure will satisfy him and his constituents. That is enough for us. We have shown who Mr. O'Connell's real constituents are, and we know that any measure that satisfies him and them must be another step towards establishing the despotic domination of popery in Ireland.
