Weekly Review. The Note Of Preparation F...
bald , p ersevering and able M ; . Buncombe maybe , it is scarcely possible that , constituted as that House is at present , he can do wm \ t is absolutely required to g ive effect to their wishes . He oug ht to have supporters upon whom he could rely , instead of being obliged o u all great questions of principle to fight almost single-handed . During the Session , be it lo ^ i oTshort , we are certain that he will let slip no opportunity of advancing the popular cause , and of stripping the Whigs of any disguise they may assume ; but in order to achieve effective measures , we must have a dissolution , and at the General Election be prepared to return at least twenty
membars , who will think , speak and vote for the people under his leadership . If Russell plays the game he is suspected of intending , namely , that of coquetting Trith the Protectionist party , and showing the cold shoulder to the " Liberals , " in order to persuade the first that he is a " safer" minister for them than Peel such a Jesuitical policy must he met by determined measures . Protract as they may , by all the arts in the power of the Whigs , the termination of the Session will bring the natural death of ihe prese Parliament , and the country will then have the opportunity , as far as its present electoral constitution will permit , of pronouncing an opinion on their deserts and fitness for office .
The rumours as to the Government being prepared with a series of effective and radical measures for Ireland , have died away as ] suddenly as they were cremated . The ministerial papers have nothing tu sav on the subject of a definite character , and rapidly as we are nearing the meeting" of Parlialiament , that may be taken as an indication that such measures , if contemplated at all , are not yet agreed upon .
The copious extracts we have given from the Irish papers show that the gloom which bangs over that devoted country grows denser and darker Scarcely a ray of hope penetrates it . Such scenes of wholesale famine and death from destitution as « renow commonly reported , may well make us question whether we live in the middle of the 19 th century of Christianity , and whether these are evi-¦ dences of our boasted advance in civilization , refinement and wealth ?
The worst baa evidently not yet come . We have long and hard winter months before us . The iO 0 r , starving , destitute , and almost naked wretches , Fhose claims for support cannot be denied , will be , iv the present mode of administering relief , exposed Id all the bitter inclemency of the season , and will die in yet greater numbers from its effects , conjoined ¦ frith the want of proper sustenance . It is also confidently asserted that tillage is neglected , and frat next winter will be a repetition of the present gily in a worse degree , and on a more extended scale . One thing is certain , that , at present , the demands from Ireland for food cannot be supplied , the mills working night and day cannot grind com fast enough .
At home , prices of all sorts of provisions seem on the rise ; an indication of either actual or anticipated scarcity , which , in connexion with the deplorably depressed condition of several of our staple manufactures , cannot but be severely felt by the industrious classes . The agitation for the Ten Hours Bill has crossed tie border . Mr . Oastler has addressed crowded , enthusiastic , and influential audiences in the leading towns ; and what is deserving of remark , although in the first instance invited by the working classes , his arrival in each town was the signal for the minister of the kirk , as well as other religious denominations , and influential gentlemen , merchants , Bankers , and
manufacturers , to rally round hira . At Edinburgh , where he and Mr . Ferrand addressed a meeting , summoned by the operatives , Sir J . Forrest , late Lord Provost of the City , presided ; and at the earnest solicitation of Sir James , backed by many influential inhabitants , among whom may be mentioned the celebrated Dr . Chalmers , the venerable advocate of the claims of labour consented to hold another meeting , principally for the purpose of explaining the question to the upper classes of the aristocratic society of ' Modern Athens . " Mr . Oastler appears to have had a triumphant progress through the country , and to have everywhere put opposition to flisfct .
A campaign of the same description" will , we ut derstand , be immediately commenced in Lancashire . A meeting of delegates from various lowns in that county was held last Sunday at . Manchester , at which resolutions of a most uncompromising character were passed , and a temporizing letter of Mr . Hindley ' s recommending the operatives to accept an Eleven Hours' BUI " as an instalment" on their claims , was unanimously scouted . In short , there is every prospect of a vigorous and successful agitation of the question . It is in the bands of men who -ire in
ea-nest ; who will not stop to consider whether the coirse they are pursuing will suit the interest of tLs minister , or that party . Oastler and Ferrand will not only teach the operatives their rights and their power , but enable tbem to secure the one and exercise the other . On the subject of tbe agitation , th ; Times has a somewhat striking article from wldch we take the following morceoux . It will be tihdul afterwards when it may serve " the Thunderer ' s" purpose to invoke the strong arm of the law to put down other agitations to which it is not so frijadly as the Ten Hours Movement . For
Hiilaace , a general agitation in favour of the Charter or the National Trades Association . When it does so it will be well to answer it wilhits own words : — As for the manner in which the present agitation is Hk ? ly to be carried on , we presume that must depend v « y much on the character of the parties who are allowed to take tbe lead . F < t our own part , tee have no Ob ection to a good fervid harangue , or an hour er two ' s party and local gossip , delivered in good mother-English , with a few provincial decorations . We have no objection to-. hat genial mode of viewing an interesting subject wiich makes it Sourish andntmffv into end / ess kindred ,
an ,-l certainly not less delicate topics . Shade of old Cobbett ! who wUl say in this day of your prophetic trhmpb , with Ireland almost calling you from the grave , thityoor rough invective and home-spun rhetoric were a * s : » e of energy and language' For our own part , we h & te no great hoiror of meetings to which the predominant fustian gives tbe tone . How many such have met , ma spoken , and resolved as became Britons and free men , without doing altogether one-hundredtb part of the oi-chief perpetrated and beqneated to all future times by
th * politer encyclopedists and academicians of Paris ? HV have no objection to committees of delegates , or even to . conventions , threatening as they seem to the peace or rrszquillity 0 f masters . Such things must and will be . JSasUrs will combine , and so will operatives . Union , ii not always actual strength , is at least the refoge of *« 4 kaess . All that we would look to , and further t * the utmost of our humble power is , that such noting * , such mode of operating , should be purged an «& r as possible of dangerous leaven , and their objects 'tnuldbe good .

from the Crown downwards , In the mere civilised moiety of tbe world . Therefore smother no agitations , till at least they have assumed the most violent and incendiary character ; " and eve » then , in the very worst case , remember that they are not brute beasts , but rational baiBgs aad fellow-Christians , with whom vou have to deal . " Amen ! But what can have come over our " bully Bottom'" to make him thus " war as gently as any sucking dove—as ' twere any nightingale ?"
With the present paper we close one year and commence another . The past year was an eventful one when regarded in a political aspect , that on which we have just entered promises to be still more fruitful in events of importance . If the flow of the great current of events is closely watched , it will be seen that , however appearances may fluctuite on the surface , one strong steady tendency is observable , and * that is , the throwing of more and more power into the hands of ihe masses . We are approaching nearer that great goal of every patriot aud freeman—the realization of the principle of
selfgovernment . What 1847 will do for that object , remains to be seen . We hope much ; and looking back kindly and gratefully on the OLD , we heartily welcome the NEW YEAR , wishing that it may prove to all our readers better than any previous veir of their lives .

Mr. W. S. O'Brien, And The Rent. We Have...
MR . W . S . O'BRIEN , AND THE RENT . We have given very copious extracts in the columns devoted to Irish affaire , from a letter in which Mr . O'Brien gives a history of his connection with O'Connell and the Repeal movement , with reference to that document Mr . O'lliggins Irnly says in a letter to us : — Every Chartist in Crest Sritain should have a copy of Mr . O'Brien ' s admirable letter . How completely it de . molishes the sophistry of our Irish soidisant Taleyrandt What a charm there is in truth ! And in Mr . Brim ' s letter the whole truth is simply , plainly and beautifully told . Mr . O'lliggins adds it is to be regretted for the sake of the cause of which Mr . W . S . O'Brien is virtually if not really . tbe leader , that be did not add another sentence to the ei ghtb paragraph in his letter , vii .
* ' That it shall hereafter be an invariable principle of the Repeal policy to keep the Irish nation wholly independent of English parties opposed to Repeal . " To this be should have added—that wa shall hail with delight the accession to our ranks , every inhabitant of Great Britain who shall co-operate with us in achieving tbe Repeal of tbe Bfrgislative Union . The hearty , sincere , and effective aid of nearly half the male population of Great Britain , was scornfully rejected by tbe old political knave , who never desired the Repeal of the Union ; but merely made use of it for no other purpose than that of promoting the interests of his own family .
It is not possible that any man could be the honest advocate of tbe measure , and at tbe same time reject the co-operation of more men than there are mala inhabitants in Ireland . There are not 3 , 500 , 000 male inhabitants in Ireland ; yet a petition signed by 3 , 500 , 000 inhabitants of Great Britain for a Repeal of the Union was contumeliously spurned by the great advocate of Repeal ! And why f Because he knew that the English people would keep him to it whether Whigs or Tories were in power . PATRICK O'HIGGINS . Qablin . Dec . 2 Tth . lS 16 .
T. S. Buncombe, Esq. We Have No Ordinary...
T . S . BUNCOMBE , ESQ . We have no ordinary pleasure in being able to aunnounce , that it is the intention of the Associated Trades of London , and the Chartists , to entertain their noble champion and chief at a splendid tea party , on Monday , the 18 th of January , 1847 , the night previous to the meeting of Parliament , at the Crown and Anchor Tavern , Strand , and that no Weymouth-claptrap Whigling will be invited , lest intemperance of expression , provoked by unnatural excitement , should render him unacceptable toslaves without principle .

TO FE ARGUS O ' CONNOR , ESQ ., ENGLAND . Misebal Foist , Wisconsin , November 21 st , 184 C . Sis , —A pleasurable excitement is always created in the minds of all liberal men , throughout the civilized world , by the reports of the progress of the Chartist party , aa conveyed through the medium of the press in general , and particularly of your own Northern Star . But at no time have our hopes of the speedy triumph of your principles assumed so substantial a character , as since the publication of
your " Jubilee' on the 17 th of August last . Now we know that you have attacked the monster " Monopoly" in the right quarter . Get the Land—and all turmoil of faction , all the brutality of a bloated aristocracy , ail the cunning of a grasping , monopolizing shopo-millo-cracy , will be unable to subvert your causa . The Jews will vanish . Your ship will be chained to an anchor , which willneitherpart . snap , nor drag . Well it is , that this light has broke upon the world' " That all Retorm must have a solid , tangible foundation ; " that the working man ' s cottage , built upon the occupant ' s own soil , is wor th a thousand Philosophers' Castles built in the air .
Tbe Liberals in these States begin to understand this truth ; and as it is spread out before the people by their prints ( increasing in number daily ) , you can scarcely have an adequate idea of the avidity with which their doctrines are imbibed by all conditions of men . Labourers , mechanics , farmers , professional men—yea . Legislators!—take a pride in professing themselves believers iu Reform principles , and proclaiming them to the world . In two years from now . our own Wisconsin , just now forming a State Constitution , will be a reformed country . There will be a race through the next age , among the civilized nations of the earth , who shall arrive first at the goal oi perfect civilization—by giving plenty and contentment to all , and thereby causing good will from each one to all others . All eyes from this quarter are directed to England .
There is nene of the sentiments proclaimed on your " gala day , " that seems to us as well deserving of admiration as that in which you declare yourselves "Not Levellers , but Elevators . " The distinct declaration of this motto will not only raise the standard of the aspirations of the oppressed , but also reconcile those favored ones , who fancy they must loose by a change of system ; dispel their rain apprehensions : and . perhaps , bring them over to your , our cause 1 You accomplished a great deal , when you spoke those words ' .
We make this sheet the messenger of our heartfelt joy over ? your prosperonsstate , and especially that most laudable of all undertakings— " The Co-operative Land Society . " May your successesxrat-number a thousand times your reserves ; may your determined spirit , and that of your *' cooperatives , " move obstacles like chaff before the wind ; may your persuasion , and your practicable demonstration , encourage the faithful , confirm the the doubters , warm the indifferent—till hymns of joy . from the shades of O ' Connorville . and its thousands of offspriu « , proclaim to the world the freedom of England , and the liberation of ihe world . Bless you , O'Connor ! bless all your friends . ' and be assured of their good will , and of their sincere and ardent wishes for your welfare and success , by The Reformers of Mineral Point .

mining districts .

Mr . Lenegan , missionary , reported that on Monday evenine , he attended a public meeting ofthe file cutters of SVarrini ton .

'd join the Na-ional Association as soon as soma trade dispute was settled thoyhavo on hand . On the 22 nd , he attended a meeting of Tailors . It was very numerously attended , and all parties were evidently delighted at his ardent and entliusinatic manner of explaining the principles of-the two Associations . They declared their intention of calling a second meeting , to which they invited him .

themselves . Any person or tnules body desirous of contributing to ] thc defence of tin so men , can send their money to the office of the United Trades Assot-iati .-n . when they may depend upon it being forwarded to the proper quarter . The Committee then adjourned .
TRADES OF GREAT BRITAIN RALLY ROUND THE MEN OF NEWTON : For depend upon it the Freo Trade Government of England will not he able to carry tally out their darling principle of buying labour cheap and M-lling it dear , until they have destroyed , or traterially crippled , the only barrier that now stands in their way—Trades Union * . The Lauded Aristocracy of England , when it possessed a monopoly of political power , invariably used that power to the furtln rntice of it ; - o > vn aggrandisement ; hence , the laws of Pi iiiii ,-gciutun : and entv . il , that enabled them to keep their titles and their estate intact for their eldest si * n , generally quartering the younger portion of the family upon tho nation . What the Landed Aristocracy have done , the Free Trade employing capitalist
of Great Britain will do , sineo they have succeeded in dispossessing the old party of power ; laws of Primogoniture and entail will " not suit them , but an abolition of those laws . Depend upon it , brother Unionists , this party will never rest satisfied un il they have completely prostrated labour at the shrine of capital , and that they cannot successfully accomplish until every vestige » f trades combinations aro destroyed , or utterly crippled and bound „ as to render them useless for tho purpose for which they were established . Rally round these men—pour in your contributions for their defence , that they may have the first talent the English bar affords , and be enabled to crush the " monster" indictment .
