A FRIENDLY SUGGESTION FOR O'CONNELL. Ma. O'CONNELL has just discovered
a world of virtues in "the Saxon"; for he wants the English people to back him in impeach- ing Ministers, and he would fain have them forget past viru- lence. How vexing it is that all the records of it should not be destroyed! But what on earth is he to do with the statue of him- self " defying the Saxon at Mullaghtnast" ? Will the artist be persuaded to imitate simpletons of his craft, who, after making a man, ponder what it shall" be," and as readily call it one thing as another,—Canute sitting by the sea or Marius in the ruins of Carthage, Saturn digesting his babies or Edward the Third present- ing the first English Prince of Wales to Taffy ? Will the sculptor consent to name his defiant statue, " O'Connell conciliating the Saxon at Dublin" ? Hardly. But something must be done. Let the statue be taken abroad, and imported here for future erection in Westminster Abbey : of course it will be intercepted at the Customhouse—and forgotten.
