Joseph Dennie : Editor of "the Port Folio" and Author of "the Lay Preacher" (Classic Reprint)


Excerpt from Joseph Dennie: Editor of "the Port Folio" And Author of "the Lay Preacher" Whatever might have been my views in pronouncing that parliamentary speech in the manner I did, yet, as they never could prove my crime, and the whole was presumptive, it was a downright star-chamber proceeding, and such slight grounds did by no means justify my condemnation. With regard to the Government, I shall ever feel a rooted prejudice against them for their conduct towards me, - a prejudice which no time shall destroy. The punishment was severely felt, and stung Dennie to the quick. During his lifetime he never forgave the Government, and wherever his pen was employed in after life he gave evi dence of his indignation.
