Mr. Thomas Rainey utbwrved that since the passing of
tli' act, by the LIerisiature of the ('Cuntry, abolhiaing all
civil and political ,liainctiin, afflering the class of people
1a which he belonged, that was the first meeting that had
taken place, far tiw purpose of discussing a measure, coua-
cnrning the welfare and prosperity of the Country.
To omeetings like tila, which had taken place, from
lime lt time, before lhe paying of the aforeaid act, he
never rciniderel his presence necessary, or that he was
callih upsion to talik any part in them ; enjoying hut natural
libeny., I' rred little whether the civil or political rights
of the ritiune werr trmnpled ulmn, or even the sacred
right lof property subverted.
Rut It ha d alcomoi otherwise-he felt an interest in the
prosperity and welfare ofr his native country, to which he
was a stranger before ; and, before he proceed to es-
press his sentinmnts upon'lhe momentoul affair before tle.
imeetinr, he asked periiiuion to embrace that oppl unity
of puihlicly thanking the Loegislatue of the country for
theI be on which Itey had thus conferred no his clau :-If
tlw uwi'dly denominated free inhabitants of that island,
lid, nt as yet enjoy civil and political liberties, it would
be In(eenroaI i them to attribute the canus to the mem-
ben of tih Legislatiar eLe&ieri .
Mr. Rainey thdi proceeded to deliver his etimenta on
the subject matter befre the meeting, end which as he ob-
Irndv, had ben for may yean militting against the
welfare and priority of the Coloie generally. This
gentlemn having concluded a very able speech, by paint-
Ing out the injustice of making one set of men happy, by
ruderIn ohers miserable, a number of resolution were
esnered leo., similar in spirit to those of the Sise Colo-
niet, which have proraedl against the illegl lrrrfrreune
