MERTHYli T YD Vlj,, SA JURDA Y, Jan. 16, 1836 It is a characteristic circumstance, that at the late Meeting at the Mansion House, for assist- ing the unfortunate Whalers, not one of the whole sixteen Members for the Metropolis and its suburbs could find time to be present. Yet the whole sixteen are Radicals, and devoted to the peopleâall philanthropists and prodigi- ously oratorical about Poland, Siberia, Sydney. Cove and all the suffering world besides, and all dealers in the deepest pathetic on the horrors ol workhouse discipline, Willi its warm rOOIlI- coinf*. rfahle clothing, and four meals a day- Yet not an orator nor philanthropIst could find a syllable for the five hundred sailors freeziog and famishing at the Pole. And it is to be re- collected that this was no: a Meeting for the Irish ( lergv, where famine might be regarded by patriotism as the just judgment on their still presuming to profess Protestantism; nor as it to protect the rights of either the Peerage or the King, whom the true orator and patriot ktiolvo to be only fit for contempt. It was for a portiOI) of the humblest order of the people on the point of perishing by the most horrible fate, and doubtless at this moment looking with many a despairing eye towards England ;-but they are many hundred miles off, quite out of sight, and have not probably a vote for London or iiiildie, sex among them under these circumstances we see no possible reason why they should be con- sidered worthy, of a speech, or a much illore valuable shilling from any Radical alive. The friends of these Gentlemen^arowever, say that they are ever ready to act the "Man of humanity." We fully believe them.
