REPEAL MEETING.
At a moeling of tho citizens of Burlington
and vicinity, favorable lo the repeal of the'
Legislative Union between Ireland and Eng
land, held on the Court House Square, July
4th, 1843, II EM AN LOWRY, Esq. was on
the nomination of N. R. Haswell, Esq. ap
pointed President, and Edward A. Stans
bury and Aabon Dunn Mavnard, Esqrs.
Secretaries.
Mr. Haswell introduced the following re
solutions (
Resolved That In common with the great maiori
ty of our fellow-citizens in the United States, without
distinclien of parlv, vvc lender our sympathy to the
Irish nation in its 'lawful and constitutional struggle
for llio recovery of its rights nnd Parliament and wo
confidently trust nnd hope that under tho guidance of
Heaven I hey arc not far from the attainment ol their
objfet. ,.
Resolved, That we most cordially apprsvo and res

Rtsotced. 'I hat scparaic-l as wo ate from the Old
World our interest nnd safety as a nation lie in culti
vating peace with all nations, forming entangling l
helices wilh none, as citizens of n free country we

of man t if through accident tr choice any such
.bill seek an asvluni in our Republic under our mild
nnd equal laws, they will find protection a home
nnu a country.
which wero adopted by acclamation.
Mr. Haswell then offered, in behalf of (he
Rev. JEncMi.vit O'Callaghan, tho follow
ing resolution :
Resolved, That llio aland taken by ihe Roman
Catholic Clergy of Ireland in Iho present crisis, par
ticularly tho tlignified nvownl proclaimed bv the il
lustrious prelate's .mciiaie ami ihgoinji inai oie-y
will rise or fill with their flocks in resisting iniqui
loin laws of all soils," proves ihem In be the good
Shepherds and calls for our esteem nnd adaptation.
which after appropriate remarks from the
Rav. mover, wm paad withoHt diawn).
loudly called for from all sides, rose nud ad-
Iresseel the assembly. Wo regret our ina
bility to give a correct synoposis of his re
marks. Mr. K. said ho did not expect to
bo called upon on this occasion, but was nev
er backward in cxpiessing bis sympathy for
the oppressed everywhere and especially win
it grateful lo him to speak to Irishmen of the
wickedness practised toward their suffering
country. IIo said ho rejoiced in the repeal
movements, and was willing to back them up
even to the length of forcing a separation
from England. Ho said thero was enough
in tho grasping policy of Great Urilain to
make every friend of freedom tremble un
less her ruthless career was signally check
ed. (Cheers.) He adverted to tho sjste--matic
policy of accrandixemrnt which basso
long distinguished England, to her seizure of
China, of tho Oregon and tho Sandwich Is
lands. IIo said if no love for Ireland had
swelled his breast, it would be enough to re
commend the repeal movement to him, that
its tendency was to weaken, dismember, and
cripple England. (Tremendous cheering.)
After Mr. Kasson sat down Nathan 15.
Haswell, Esq. offered a resolution, which
was subsequently taken away from thu Sec
retary's table, and of which tho substance
was, that tho Irish Emigrants here, having
abjured thtir allegiance to foreign dominion,
and sworn to support thu Constitution of the
United Slates, were bound to express their
disapprobation of the interfcronco of Mr.
O'Counell with a very delicate subject, con
nected w ith tho "peculiar institutions" of
this country.
To tho passages of tltis resolution, Rev.
Jeremiah O'Callaghan made a powerful and
effective opposition, in a speech of a few
minutes. He opposed the rea.ihitiDUj he
said, for various reasons. In the first place
it was totally foreign to the purpose of the
meeting, and diametrically oppo-od to its
Sjiuit. He said it was feiw lan'j, Inn involv
ed, too obscure, nnd too incomprehensible !
.-hid he put it to the good si-iim; of the as
sembly whether it ought not to bu rejected.
("Cheers.)
Mr. Haswell replied to Father O'Call.i
L'han with much warmth. Ue said this was
a subject nearly connected with thu subject
of repeal. That his hish friends li nl conic
here to bo Americans, and were bound to
support the Constitution of this Nation that
this address of O'Connell on Abolition was
a blow nt thu Coiivlitution and that though
they might applaud his repeal sentiments
they ought to frown ilown this dangerous in
terference of foreigners with our interna!
affiiiis. He spoko of tho " blood boiiL'ht
treasure! " of our liberties, of thu grief he fell
at the existence of slavery, admitted it to bn
a blot on our flag, but expressed the hope
lhat ere long, all men, including iho slave's,
would bo " redeemed, regenerated and dis
enthralled, by tho irresistible genius of uni-
versil emancipation." (Cheers.)
Mr. Stansiiuiiv replied lo Mr. Haswell.
Ue said he should uu thavo obtruded hinisiilf
upon the notice of the meeting had he nol
been cliiM upon to net as an officer on that
occasion L it st i'..";i: hi the r lalitiu he did
to that meeting, ho could not suli'iir stub u ri
solution to pass without protesting must 'oud
ly againM its passage. (Cheer..) He said
the resolution was not only totally foreign to
llio occasion but ns neatly in tho teeth of the
object and spirit of tho nicelitig, as any that
could well have been devised. It was no
less than an attempt at an Irish repeal meet
ing to censure Daniel O'Connell for pro
claiming his abhorrenco of negro slavery !
(Cheers.) He said that if Daniel O'Connell
was worthy of condemnation, tee had better
go home, for if his was interference, what
wcro wc about ( What wcro the people
hero doing, but interfering in England's do
mestic affairs! Was the spirit of Irish lib
erty so narrow that it could stretch no fur
