Mr. Atwood presented the National Petition" on the night of yesterday se'nnight; and we are happy to state, that the House received it with a courtesy and a respect befitting its own dignity, and a due regard to the numbers who, by their signa- tures, may be said to have fully concurred in its prayer. We need not state that, taken as a whole, we are opposed toto ccelo, to its adoption, but still, we are advocates for a calm and deliberate discus- sion upon its merits or demerits. Mr. Attwood most properly was permitted to violate the rule usual on such occasions, as to make a speech on introducing the petition to the notice of the House. He, of course, we need not state, expressed his en- tire dissent from, and disapprobation, of the men who have brought so much disgrace upon the peo- ple, and so severely injured the course of Reform, by preaching violence and bloodshed throughout the country. I solemnly pledge myself," said the Member of Birmingham, never to allow a drop of blood to be shed in the prosecution of any poli- tical object, in which I am engaged." This decla- ration of the Hon. Member will, we trust, have a salutary effect upon the minds of the sane, thinking Chartists, and make them at once separate from any leader, who will not decidedly and honestly take the "ATWOOD PLEDGE!" Let the Chartists conduct their deliberations with temper and discretion, and they will cease to subject themselves to the severe censures of the orderly and well-disposed. For ourselves, we have been much abused for fearlessly and, we trust, we may say honestly doing our duty and we can truly aver, with the Editor of the London Weekly Chronicle, that our opponents must do us the justice to observe, that while we were the first to grapple with them in the days of their power, we have not triumphed over the re- verses they have sustained of late. There is no- thing satisfactory to us in the imprisonment of men for conscientious opinions, be they what they may. All we asked was, leave to defend our own views before the tribunal of the country, without fear of the dagger and the pike."
