Pagina 168 - House, in order to consider the present state of the church establishment in Ireland, with the view of applying any surplus of the revenues not required for the spiritual care of its members to the general education of all classes of the people, without distinction of religious persuasion.
Pagina 136 - I shall not resort in vain for assistance in these afflicting circumstances, and that you will be ready to adopt such measures of salutary precaution, and to entrust to me such additional powers, as may be found necessary for controlling and punishing the disturbers of the public peace, and for preserving and strengthening the Legislative Union between the two countries, which, with your support, and under the blessing of Divine Providence, I am determined to maintain by all the means in my power,...

Pagina 255 - Crown and the existing law give to the government which shall not be exercised for the purpose of maintaining the union, the dissolution of which would involve not merely the repeal of an Act of Parliament but the dismemberment of this great Empire...
