" There is not a national feeling that las not been insulted and trodden un.
der foot ; a national right that has not been withheld, until fear forced it from
the grasp of England; or a dear cruncieri, pnejudice that has not been vio-
lated, in that atrised country: : As Christiáns, the people of Ireland have been
denied, under penalties and disqualificstiórs, the exercise of the rites of the
Catholic religion, venerable for its aniiq;uty, admirable for its unity; and consea
crated by the belief of some of the best měn that ever breathed. As men, they have
been deprived of the common rights of British subjects, under the pretext that
they were incapable of enjoying them: which pretext had no other foundation
than their resistance of oppression, only the more severe by being sanctioned
by the laws. England first denied them tle means of improvement ; and then in-
ulted ikem retk the impulation of barbarisni."-Paulding:
