READERS OF THE REPUPLICAN.

Ar the expiration of the year, at the expiration of that shadow of liberty we have lately possessed, and at the close of the first volume of this work, I feel an inclination, as well as a duty, to address a few words to you out of the usual way. This work, under its present title, was commenced at a critical period; at that moment when the troops were ordered to draw their swords on the people. It was at this critical period, that the Editor of this work pledged himself not to shrink from duty, because there was danger; but where there was danger, there to take his stand. He appeals to a discriminating public, to say, whether he has fufilled this pledge. He was at liberty when writing that short ad. dress; the next week he dated the first number of this work from a prison, and now he feels no shame in saying, that it is from a prison, and under a confinement of the strictest na ture, that it is likely to be continued. The trial of the Editor occasioned some little embarrassment in attending to this work; his removal from London has added to that embarrassment: some little deviations have occurred from the proposed mode of proceeding, but the Editor hopes that a candid allowance will be made for this; and finding himself again composed and settled, to resume the second volume with the pristine vigour of the first, if a publisher can be found under the existing state of things ; he trusts that a generous public will give him credit when he says, that he would not

call on any other to do that, which he would shrink from doing himself. He is fully aware of the aspect of the times: but unless they are met by a boldness equivalent to martyrdom on the part of writers and publishers, the press will become that destructive engine in England which it has proved to be in other countries. Not a word will be written on the affairs of the country, but to applaud every act of the ruling party, and their adherents will proceed from villainy to villainy, until we have an Asiatic system in reality. These fellows will hy and by sit at their meals and order their janizaries to go and fetch the head of such individuals as are obnoxious to them. The present system of legislation is quite unnatural, and in direct hostility to the better judgement of the whole people of Great Britain and Ireland : it is the legislation of one man--he influences the Council Board, and thence the Parliament by bribery and corruption. How long the people will continue under this system is not for me to say: patience has already carried them beyond what prudence would dictate. Job will be no longer referred to as the emblem of patience, when the history of the present state of this country shall be written by the impartial historian.

In the course of this work, the Editor has had many queries put' to him, both verbal and by correspondence, as to his object and wishes relative to the abolition of monarchy and established religious creeds: and others, expressing their disapprobation of mixing theological with political questions. He will not give an answer to individual inquirers by name, but will eydeavour to give a general answer to all queries that have arisen on the subject.

In the first place, it has been the practice of ignorant or evil-minded persons to assimilate the horrors of the French Revolution with any attempt to reach a Republican form of government. But on taking a closér view of the subject, and
