we are told the pope does not consent to their establishment in countries which are
not willing to receive them ; and we might ask where the person at the head of the
Stonyhurst establishment now is, and for what purpose he is where he is said to be.

" We have been told that in Ireland, where the Roman Catholic hierarchy exists,
they have their synods and their consistorial courts; and they are mis-represented
if they do not use their excommunications, and their refusals to give the sacrament,
for purposes which it would be difficult to consider as of a purely spiritual nature or
to reconcile to the law of the land."

After quoting Judge Blackstone and Lord Clare, he cited from a speech of Lord
Hardwicke a passage, concluding with these words:

" Even abstracted from religious considerations, the Protestant religion ought to be
held in the highest reverence, as the surest barrier of our civil constitution. Ecclesiastical
usurpation seldom fails to end in civil tyrrany. The present happy settlement of the
crown is, in truth and not in name only, the Protestant succession; and the inviolable
preservation of that wise and fundamental law, made since the revolution, whereby
every papist is absolutely excluded from inheriting the crown, will be a solid security
to our posterity against all who shall watch for the destruction of our liberties.'

"If the cries of 'hear, hear,' mean to intimate that the noble lords who are near,
deem this as Lord Hardwicke's declaration of opinion, that the happy settlement of
the crown, consisted only in excluding a papist from the throne, and in no manner
depended upon the crown's being surrounded with Protestant councils, and that that
exclusion alone, though the crown should be surrounded in all departments of offices
with Roman Catholic advisers (enemies to that Protestant religion, which is here said
to be the surest barrier of our civil constitution) would be a solid security for our
liberties, they impute to him a want of judgment, and contradictions in what he de-
clares, altogether inconsistent with his great character. May the posterity of those
noble lords find, in the preservation of our present laws, in those wise and funda-
mental laws which require the throne, the government and the church, to be unalter-
ably and for ever Protestant, that solid security for their liberties, which they can
never find in excluding a papist from the throne, but surrounding a Protestant king
with popish advisers ! "
