Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'Of the state of public opinion in Ireland, and the spirit shown by the surviving organs thereof, I have but this indicium. The "Freeman's Journal", one number of which I have seen, ventures as a piece of incredible daring, to print some words used by Whiteside in his speech for the prisoners - words deprecatory of the packing of juries, or something of that sort. The editor ventures no remarks of his own, and carefully quotes Whiteside's words as "used by counsel".'
