The Agriculturists, PP15

To The Agriculturists.

Gentlemen,

Upon my arrival amongst you, I find that divers false reports have been most industriously circulated against me, upon the subject of the Corn Laws;-the best answer I can give will be the shortest;- I shall support every protection to the Farmer, & vote against Free Trade in Corn, which cannot be grown in this Country without Protecting Laws, and until TAXATION and TITHES are REDUCED.

W. A. INGILBY.

Gainsburgh, 10th July, 1832.  H. Hurton, Printer, Mercer-Row, Louth.

What is a Tory, PP16

WHAT IS A TORY?           
Question 1.  What is a Tory?
Answer.  A man whose wishes are to bring into power the Duke of Wellington!
2. What is a Tory?   A man wishing to destroy the principles of the Reform Bill!
3.  What is a Tory?   A man wishing to keep up Taxation and Tithes!
4.  What is a Tory?  A man wishing to keep the People of England, Scotland, and Ireland in Ignorance and under Military Subjection!
5.  What is a Tory?   A Man wishing to continue SLAVERY in preference to all Human Beings having Freedom!
6.  What is a Tory?  A Man that is an Aristocrat! And a follower of the Squirearchy!
7.  What is a Tory?  A Man that wishes the Form of Government to be in the supreme Power of the Nobles! (alias-Tory.)
8.  What is a Tory?  A Man fond of Power, and often of Tyranny!  A Despot!
9.  What is a Tory?  A Man, offering himself as a CANDIDATE, to represent the NORTHERN Division of the County of Lincoln in Parliament, under the Patronage of an old rank Tory, whose colours are Red and Green!
10.  What is a Tory?  Dr. Johnson says-A cant term, derived from an Irish word signifying a "Savage" of a "Robber!"
11.  Then is a TORY to be TRUSTED in Parliament to support your Rights?  No, Never.
12.  Can you, as a Voter, now you have obtained the Reform Bill, through the aid of such men as your INGILBY and PELHAM, who have stuck true to your call and interest, forsake them, and leave their work to be defaced by a TORY?  Surely not, -that Voter so devoid of Principle, is worse than Dr. Johnson's definition of the word Tory.
     Then, fellow Countrymen and Freemen, be true to the Whigs!  They have been true to you; they have fought your battles; they have worked night and day for your Rights, and are still willing to work: they have procured the noble Bill of Reform, and will, if you will le them, work that Reform to your Benefit; but if you allow the Parliament House to be filled with Men of Tory Principles, or even as they say, to blind you, of moderate Reform Principles, you will be wrong, for they will say anything you please to accomplish their object, so long as they can keep out a Whig and get in a Tory.  You know your present Members to be faithful,-they have been tried, and have acquitted themselves like honest Men;-pray what know ye of Sir Rt. Sheffield?- that he is a respectable gentleman, no on will deny;- are not your present worthy Members equally so?  Truly they are,- they why attempt to turn off an old tried Servant, for one who is a Tory, who comes under rank Tory Colours, and will give you Tory Work in the House.  Beware, I say beware then of Wolves in Sheeps' clothing.
An Old Freeholder.
J. Drury, Printer Gainsborough.
