IILTI'HYJI TY/JVJL, SATDROAV, July 22, 1H37 t) SOv Ocrary is the power of the rabble, the r. pine. erit of ignorance, ami the tritimp'.» of t"ltte' honest man, therefore, can be a ths CFat* P°P»ry 's power of 1 lie mo^k, ay of craft, and the triumph of c4lJ ,lt'On: no man of trtie religion, therefore.

We say that iJ°*S iit)po8?fOSS'6/C tl,3t a great nation can be 'Co,He t0 jj861' l,Pori • the imposition has now *Uy*««utS i,atUral ,t,e c*b»net ^a# now ^ief juguj^ tr^c^s on public credulty, Ibe r has harangued, gesticulated, and promised wonders, till the n ition has become tired of his grimaces, and the only desire among all men is to see the curtain fall, his cups and balls thrown into his pack, and his whole com- pany ejected from the stage by the help of the constable. We would not use this langllage in any instance to any body of men that bore the semblance of a legitimate Ministry of England but how arp. 1 11 we to discover that semblance in the dilapidated faculties of the Premier, in the empty petulance 0f Lord J. Russell, in the dandyism of person and politics,embodied in that office-loving person, Lord Palmerston, or in the owl-like gravity and somnolent wisdom of Lord Glenelg? As for the rest, no man knows more about them or cares more, than about the pages and cooks in the royal kitchen. They eat, drink and are merry, prepare, the official mess for their masters' tables, feed on its remnants, and are forgotten. But contemptible as this Cabinet is, it can signalize itself by doing irreparable mischief to the country. Neither the Papist nor the Radical will serve for nothing, and the feebler the Cabinet, the higher must be the wages. A few years more of this misrule must inevita- bly see all our great Institutions sacri- ficed. Democracy is already blowing the torch that is to reduce the Stale into ashes, for the simple purpose of clearing the ground for a Republic. Popery has already thrown off the clonk that hid the armour of the rebel ■ inder the vesture of the Priest, and is now openly brandishing the dagger against the Church. We repeat, that the question is not now between parties, but between essential vice and essential virtue; between the principles which concoct the life-blood of the nation, and the principles which infuse poison into every vein—Between the horrid sway of mingled malice and rapine, and the glorious supremacy of truth and honor. In one word, between Popery and Protestantism. This is the whole question. The Elector who is now called on to give his vote must be taught that he votes not for men, but for principles; the enquiry with him should be, shall I vote for the protection of my fire-side, or for its plunder Shall I vote for the Church in which I have been borll, in which the bones of my forefathers lie protected, 'and in which my children are at this time learning their duty to God and man, or shall I vote to put them into the hands cf some uncouth ruffian of a Popish Priest, who shall tell them that the Pope is a God on earth,, —that murder and adultery can be bought oft by paying the confessional,- that all oath is only a thing of words, and that all Protestants, himself alld his fathers included, let their virtues be what they may, are only food for sulphur- If Englishmen are not to be moved by such things, by what are they to be moved? What stones have supplanted the hearts in their bosoms? What sensual apathy can have blotted out all the warnings of ages? Or what solid and rapid punishment must they not be drawing down on their own heads, from an affronted heaven ? These feelings have still to make their way through the nation. When they have done so, all will be astonishment rhat they were not the ruling impulses of the Empire from the beginning. Their existence is its only hope of safety. It is honourable in the highest degree, to the estimable men who have already acted on these impulses that they have not waited for the terrible lesson of national calamity. In our own county, we have individuals worthy of standing forth in the first rank of national championship. We rejoice to see some of them coming forward, neither de- terred by the difficulties of the struggle, nor hesitating to divorce themselves from that private life in which the virtues and enjoyments of Englishmen grow up together more substantially than those of any other country of Europe. We should have more of such men. Glamorgan has its whole preponderance of property, personal character, and public distinction, CONSLitvATIVII. Need we mention to Welshmen the names of the Marquis of Bute, that noble friend of all that constitutes the virtue, manliness and pros- perity of Glamorgan the DUllravens, a family which at this hour are giving a proud evidence of their patriotism in the young and accom- plished Candidate for the County, Lord Adare; —the Dynevors,—the Jerseys,—the Morgans, —the Greys,—the Trahernes, — the Nidiolls, and a crowd of others, all alike vigorously and faithfully Conservative ? In Mr Bruce, the Candidate for M erthyr, we have a man whom, as Frederick ot Prussia once s-i-id of one of his celebrated comrades, we i should be equally proud to show to our friends and our enemies." Bllt how much nobler are the deservings of the true patriot than even of the gallant soldier;—the one coming forward in the spirit of peace to fix the rights of freedom, religion, and liiittiaiiitv the other, at best, plucking a precarious laurel from the miseries of mankind. Of Mr Bruce S opponent we shall here say no more than he can say for himself, which is—nothing. We shall not trouble our minds with comparing the intelligent Magis- trate, the educated scholar, the able speaker, and the wtii-itiforitied friend of the Constitution, with Mr Gueat, TIIt latter has, all onr pit: We pity his display on the hustlllgs-we shall pity him in his, we trust, double defeat; but most of all shall ne pity him if, by any accident of malicious fortune, he shall again worm his way into tlie House. There, indeed, our ridi- cule shall be mingled with our pity. Risu solventur tabulae."
