THE FRANCHISE A TRUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 2 October 1856

THE FRANCHISE A TRUST. ! As tne legislature is called into ex ! istence and maintained in being by : the Tarious constituencies, it follows ' as a matter of course that the power of creating so important an element ; of civilized society can only be rightly exercised when viewed as a solemn trust held for the benefit of the com munity at large, and not as a privilege to be employed for individual pur- ! poses. Yet how few there are who ! thus regard the franchise, and exer cise it under a sense of solemn re- ; 6ponsibility. It is the distinguishing mark and the most precious birthright of freemen. It is the connecting link between the highest officer of the State and the humblest peasant in the land. It is the terror of tyrants and the support of patriots, and did oppor tunity serv e we might easily trace its operation in every beneficent scheme for advancing human happiness during the last ten centuries. For the present however, it will be sufficient to allude to the reform of parl...
