No. XXXIII,

ART. I. Substance of the Speech of Sir John Cox Hippisley, Bart.

on seconding the Motion of the Right Hon. Henry Gratlan, to refer the Petition of the Roman Catholics of Ireland to a Committee of the House of Commons, on Friday, the 18th of May, 1810. With an Appendix, greatly enlarged, and additional Notes. The Second Edition, corrected. pp. 320. 8vo. London, 1810.

W hat ought to be the religion of a country, where two thirds

of the people are Catholic, and only one third Protestant ? --where two thirds profess that form of Christianity which still prerails over the greatest part of civilized Europe, the remaining third professing what they think a purer form of Christianity?

If this be too bold, or too general a question for the taste of some of our readers, it will serve our purpose equally well, if they will only ask themselves the following—Was it just or reasonable, while Ireland continued a distinct kingdom, that two thirds of her inhabitants should be subjected to pains and civil disabilities on account of their religion? and, if the Union, by which she ceased to be a distinct kingdom, was negotiated on a footing of equality, and brought about partly by promises to remove these pains and disabilities, is it just or reasonable that they should still be continued ?

We shall not add another word on the justice of the claims now made by the Irish Catholics, considered with a reference to Ireland only; but, forgetting that she ever had a separate political existence, and regarding her merely as an integral portion of the British empire, we shall be satisfied with asking, Whether it be salutary and expedicnt for the whole state, that the Irish Catholics should be kept under the disabilities to which they are still subicted? VOL. XVII. NO. 33.
