It is the realization of that which has bt- en oflen said, and often felt— that the annals with which the history of every country are thickly strewn, are in themselves far more romantic than the hap- piest inventions of the must ingenious novelists and poels. They are valuable illustrations of manners, and striking commentaries on tile history of the country.— l imes. The plan of this work is excellent.— LiteraryGazette.

The Publishers beg leave to submit the following testimonials ( amongst others), in favour of this edition :— " One great advantage lies in its accuracy, and the evident stamp it has of being, in most instances, the offspring of personal observation: we, therefore, can recommend it with perfect confi- dence as a travelling companion, on which the tourist may rely, and also as an excellent book for the parlour table.''— Edinburgh Observer. " No part of the scenery of Scotland is overlouked, but on the contrary, an accurate account is given of all iis most runiantic regions, whether belonging to the Highlands or Lowlands. There is no land like our own land, and there is not a more delightful guide book in any language than the Scottish Tourist and Itine- rary."— Edinburgh Literary Journal. " The far- famed Mr. Nurth, whose opinion is a host of itself, lluding to the Third Edition of the' Scottish Tourist,' says it is manifestly compiled by an intelligent editor.' This must be looked upon as a powerful expression of Maga's approbation." * We do not hesitate to recommend ihe ' Sctittisli Tourist,' thus improved, as the most useful book of the kiirfr with which we are acquainted."— Caledonian Mercury.

DRESSLER'S FLUTES. THEODORE C. BATES, 6, Ludgate- hiii, begs to submit to tbe inspection and approbation of his friends, the professors and amateurs of the Flute, an assortment manufactured under the immediate superintendence of the above eminent pro- fessor. The great and increasing popularity which the Flute has for a considerable period maintained, has been a stimulus with him to the production of an instrument that comprises great correctness of intonation, considerable power, together with equality, mellowness, flexibility, and peculiar richness of tone. The numerous and important advantages arising from the supe- riority and extent of the stock, to the improvement and perfection of which the sole attention of the manufacturer has been devoted for the last twelve years, added to the instruments being, throughout the whole process, under the superintendence of Mr. Dressier, will, it is confidently hoped, ensure to the public that important desideratum— a Flute of very great and decided excellence, both as regards workmanship and tone. List of Prices may be had at the Warehouse, 6, Ludgate- hill; at Mr. Dress! r's, 15, Tavislock- street, Bedford- square; and at the Manufactory, 25, Villier's- sireet, Strand, London.

THE ABSOLUTE FACT why the Nobility and Gentry have submitted to pay the very high charges of a few eminent Tailors, who have monopolized their patronage for so long period, is, that until now no one had succeeded in producing Clothes which a gentleman could wear. But this monopoly can be how but of sYiort duration, as FLETCHER, of 33, NEW BOND STREET, has produced Coats, & c., & c., which cannot pussibly be distinguished by the critical eye, even uf o Bruuimetl, either in make ur materials, from those uf any eminent Tailor in the neigh- bourhood of Clifford street or St. James's, and at a very little more than half their charges, yet obtaining a fair Tradesman's Profit. H. FLETCHER begs leave, in returning his grateful thanks to the many Noblemen and Gentlemen who have honoured him with their support since his commencement in business, to assure them that the same assiduity aud exertion, which have gained him so many Patrons ( whilst under an engagement to a very eminent West- end House) will be persevered in, thereby maintaining his esta- blished reputation as the only first- rale Tailor who has boldly stepped forward to destroy the monopoly by which Gentlemen whu do pay have for so lung a period been taxed for those who do not.

DEPUTY LORD LIEUTENANT'S COAT • • GRAY'S PERSPIRATION PROMOTER AND INSTAN- TANEOUS BED WARMER. THE above Invention having elicited the appro- bation of some of ihe most scientific characters in Europe, S. GRAY feels himself warranted in asserting that in any case of Cholera, Rheumatism, Violent Colds, & c., where profuse perspira- tion is beneficial, the above apparatus is invaluable. Placed in bed, by the side of the patient, by heating the confined air within the bed, it produces ihe same effects as Hot Air Vapour Baths, & c. As a bed warmer, or a safety lamp, it cannot be surpassed. Fur a description, see Mechanics'Magazine, Nu. 441, Jan. 22 Price 1/. 5s. to 21. 2s. GRAY'S New Invented LAVEMENT SYRINGE ought also to be in the possession of every family. Constructed without Valves or Stop- cocks, it is so simple that a child would find out the method of using it: it is the best mode of producing a healthy and regular action of the bowels, as the fiee use of purgatives destroys the tone uf the Stomach, and enfeebles the system.— See London Journal oi Arts and Sciences, fur February.

TVJ O. 20, BERNERS- STREET, Oxford- street— Mr. E. BYRNE, SURGEON- DENTIST, respectfully announces that he has been induced to dedicate two days in each week ( Tuesday and Thursday) to visiting at their residences Families requiring his Professional Services. He devotes an hour to each visit, fur which his charge is a guinea, whatever may be the number of patients relieved. Executing himself the artificial pieces he sup- plies, be has been enabled to fix his charges in the mechanical de- partment at une half the amount uf those usually made* The following Tariff is submitted to the Public :— A Set uf Teeth made of the best materials, and finished in the highest degree, usually charged double the price, only 181. Ditto, less perfect, 151. A single Tooth, 11. A Piece, composed uf several Teeth, is only charged ( per Tooth,) 15s. Each Operation performed at Mr. Byrne's house, 10s. If on a child, half- price will be received. No additional charge is made fur the Terro- Metallic Teeth, so much approved of, which Mr. Byrne particularly recommends, for their exact imitation of nature, wholly uiidistiuguishable from the original, and. for their great durability, resisting the effects of the strongest acids, and even of fire. Their imperishable nature, toge- ther with their peculiar freshness in the' mouth, not imparting the slightest; odour lo the breath, render them decidedly preferable to any other description adopted by the Profession.

VALUABLE AND USEFUL BEVERAGES.

TIff 12 fOWS. March 11. REVIEWS. Chantilly.— In 3 vols. The title of this work is a misleading one : for the adventures and scenes described in the three tales of which it consists, have nothing more to do with the Chateau of Chantilly ( the theatre of SO many gay, gorgeous, and interesting events) than being sup- posed to have taken place in and about the forest of that name. This romance is of the old and by- gone fashion ; made up of the well- known ingredients of doughty knight, and high- born damsel •— gossipping nurse— wily traitor— turretted castle— and robber- infested forests. These rather musty materials have, however, been worked up with no little ingenuity, considering that the author is young and a lady, and that this is her first essay,— There is also, in many passages, a display of natural and forceful feeling, urged, in some instances, however, to exaggeration.— In the story of " D'Espignac," a taleof the timeof the Ligneurs, there are some spirited and graceful sketches of forest scenery. The plot bears some resemblance to the Bride of Lammermuir— tut further the comparison holdeth not. The work is dedicated to the Princess Louise, one of the daughters of Louis Philippe. The Hill and Valley. By Harriet Martineau. This pretty little volume contains the second illustration of Miss Martineau's praiseworthy attempt to render familiar to the young and unlearned some of the leading principles of Political Economy. The subject of the present number is, the relations existing between capital and labour. This useful little publica- tion merits every encouragement. The Monthly Repository for March offers a very attractive bill of fare, amongst which are particularly remarkable two articles, one entitled, " Cholera and the Fast Day," and the other, " The Poor and their Poetry." February, to the French Ambassador, M. de St. Aulaire, in which he protests in the most energetic terms against the occu- pation of Ancona by the French troops, as derogatory to the rights of the Pope, and at variance with the assurances repeat- edly given to his Holiness by M. de St. Aulaire, of the friendly intentions of France towards the Papal Government. The fol- lowing is the Pope's protest :— " His Holiness formally protests against the violation of the Papal territory, Which was accomplished on the morning of the 23d of February by the French squadron ; against all the attacks committed at the same time against his sovereignty, and against the infraction of the sanatory laws by the squadron, and declares the French Government responsible for Whatever consequences may he the result of these acts. " His Holiness demands that the French troops who have en- tered in a hostile manner into Ancona, do depart from that city immediately. Amidst the deep displeasure which his Holiness derives from such an unhappy event, he feels confident that he will obtain from the French Government the just reparation which he demands.— The Cardinal Secretary of State takes advantage of this opportunity, & c. ( Signed) " T. C. BERNETTI." JAMAICA.— We have received by the Goldfinch, from Ja- maica, the most alarming accounts of the state of the island. The insurrection of the slaves is of the most formidable description, and up to the time of the packet's sailing, estates were firing in all directions. The military force was not sufficient to subject the negroes, who assembled in vast bodies and spread devastation far and wide. The loss of lives is very great, and the result is much to be dreaded. A Baptist Missonary named Burchell, was ttrrested and kept in close confinement, charged with having pro. mised the negroes their freedom. No one was allowed to leave by the packet, all being required to protect the property. Se- veral of the West India islands have refused to comply with the Commands of Government, and petition to be absolved from their allegiance. The packet would have been crowded if persons Could have been allowed to leave the island. The next packet is looked for with anxiety, for the state of things was much worse at the departure of the Goldfinch than when the packet previous tio this one sailed. NEW MUSIC. She's on My Heart. J. Macdonald Harris ; the words by Miss Jewsbury.— London : Paine and Hopkins. The Lover of Mont St. Gothard. J. Macdonald Harris ; the words by Miss Burdon.— London: Aldridge. Although not equal, perhaps, to some of the former produc- tions of this composer, such as the " Mariner's Child" and the M Romaic War Song," yet these songs possess' a high degree of merit, both of beautiful melody and expression. In the latter, a serenade, which will probably be the favourite, Mr. Harris has entered deeply into the spirit of the poetry, and has caught the Sweetness and simplicity of the fair poetess' imaginings. The Better Land. By Edwin J. Nielson ; the poetry by Mrs. Hemans.— London : Aldridge. We find here, again, poetry and music going hand in hand like twin sisters, and the minstrel charmed by the pathos of the song. The change into the minor is sweet and effective. Mrs. Hemans' poetry, which always so peculiarly combines the moral with the truly poetical, we will not mutilate by extract, and be- lieving that our readers will admire the lides equally with our- selves, we have subjoined them :— " I hear thee speak of the better land, Thou call'st its children a happy band ; Mother ! 0 where is that radiant shore,— Shall we not seek it, and weep no more ? Is it where the flower of the orange blows, And the fire- flies dance thro' the myrtle boughs ? ' Not there, not there, my child.' Is it far away, in sOme region old, Where'the rivers wander o'er sands of gold ? Where the burning rays of the ruby shine, And the diamond lights up the secret mine, And the pearl gleams forth from the coral strand, Is it there, sweet mother, that better land ? * ' Not there, not there, my child.' Eye has not seen it, my gentle boy! Ear has not heard its deep songs of joy, Dreams cannot picture a world so fair, Sorrow and death may not enter there ; Time does not breathe on its fadeless bloom, For beyond the clouds, and beyond the tomb, It is there, it is there, my child 1" FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FRANCE.— The French Government has issued peremptory orders to the Generals commanding the troops in La Vendee to act with redoubled energy and severity towards the insurgents. GERMANY.— The Nuremberg Correspondent of lst January contains a letter from Trieste, dated 23d ult., which states that accounts had been received at Alexandria on the 12th, that Ibrahim Pacha had sustained a complete defeat, both by land and water, near St Jean d'Acre, by the Pacha of that city, and that 2,000 of his troops had gone over to the conqueror. BELGIUM.— Letters from Brussels mention that M. de Brouckere is likely to remain Minister of War, in consequence of the victory which he has gained over his enemies in the Chamber of Representatives, after a three days' debate on his conduct. The subject of accusation was a contract which he had made for provisioning the troops. The conditions of this contract were said to be onerous, and an inquiry was demanded on the ground that they were dishonest; but the Minister tri- umphed by his satisfactory explanations. HOLLAND.— Count Orloff is expected every day to depart for London. His language at the Hague has been decided and pacific. The Dutch begin to open their eyes to the blind and Etlfish policy of their Sovereign ; and it is said that the gallant Prince of Orange himself has remonstrated with his father on the imprudence of a course which may involve him in a ruinous, oppressive, and unnecessary war. LISBON.— Eight or nine vessels of war and transports have been prepared for the reception of two regiments of Cacadores, consisting of twelve hundred men. These troops had marched from Alentejo, and were to embark on the morning of the 26th nit. Great exertions were making to raise money for the pay- ment of the arrears to both troops and sailors. ITALY.— On the 22d of February, the first naval division of the French expedition to Aucona arrived there :— 1,000 men landed, and forcibly entered the town. A bloody edict has been just issued at Bologna, by Cardinal Albani, which has struck the whole country with alarm. This edict shows the system of severity on which the Papal Govern- ment seems determined to act; and the publication of that edict, at the very moment when a French squadron was hover- ing on the coast of the Adriatic, proves that the Pope is more disposed to take counsel from Austria than from France— from Prince Metternich than from Casimir Perier. The Austrian General at Bologna issued, on the 23d, an order of the day, in which he declares, that though he did not expect such allies, he had been apprised by his Government that if they did come, they came on the same principles as the Imperial troops, " principles the object of which was neither rebellion nor anarchy." " The Great Powers," he said, " had agreed mpon this point;" but they evidently had not agreed upon any other, or at least they had not instructed their agents respecting their plans, for General Grabowski is unable to say whether the ficts on which his order was issued " were likely to be true or false." Cardinal Bernetti has addressed a note, dated the 25th of PARLIAMENTARY PROCEEDINGS. [ For the proceedings ir the House of Lords, see our 7th page."] HOUSE OF COMMONS, MONDAY, MARCH 5. Some petitions against the new Board of Education in Ireland, and against the lithe system, were presented. CHOLERA MOR13US.— Mr. HUME called the attention of Ministers to the reported occurrence of the cholera in Marylebone workhouse. He was informed that three or four medical men had declared that the cases exhibited none of the symptoms of cholera, He wished to know on what authority the statement had been in serted in the cholera bulletin ?— Mr. P. THOMSON said that he Would inform the House how the reports issued by the Board of Health were made up. Inspectors, who were generally medical men attached to the army, were appointed in each district by the Central Board of Health. The reports of the inspectors were con- sidered sufficient authority for the insertion of the caites in the re- port issued by tlid Central Board of Health. It appeared from a statement made in a newspaper, that the inspector for Marylebone had, subsequently to his making his report, expressed to other medical gentlemen some doubt as to the cases being really cholera cases. This statement immediately attracted the attention of the Board of Health, and'they had that morning sent fur the medical inspector in order to ascertain whether lie had made any such ad- mission. He had not yet heard the result of the inquiry. He begged to direct the attention of the House to a return for which the hon. member fer Middlesex had moved, and which was now upon tiie table of the House. He had observed in some of the papers a repetition of a statement which was perfectly false— namely, that the1 medical gentlemen acting under the Board of Health were in the receipt of twenty guineas a day, or some such sum. He Only trusted that hon. members and the public would be good enough to inspect the return which was laid upon the table of the House on last Friday. It appeared from that return that these gentlemen received what scarcely could be called a competent remu- neration, for 7s. 6d. per day was the largest sum they could re- ceive fur all their labuur and anxiety. ( Hear, hear.) REFORM BILL.— On the motion of Lord Althorp, the House resolved itself into a committee of the whole House on the reform bill ; Mr. Bernal in the chair. After some opposition, but without leading to a division, it was agreed that Ashton- under- Line, Bury, ( Lancashire^) Chatham, Cheltenham, Dudley, Frome, Hudders- fleld, Kidderminster, Kendal, Rochdale, and Salford, should be included in schedule D. On the question that Gateshead, Durham, stand part of schedule D, Colonel WOOD moved that Gates- head be struck out or schedule D, and Merthyr Tydvil be inserted in its stead. The motion' gave rise to a lengthened discussion, in thecourse of which Mr. CROKER, in alluding to Mr. Ewart, said, that the huh. niember for Liverpool had supplied one of the best proofs to sliuw that Toxteth- park was not fairly represented by the members fur Liverpool, for he had altogether misstated the case as regarded it, and it appeared froin his'own confession that he was so immersed in the concerns and interests of Liverpool, that he was quite ignorant that a meeting had been held in Toxteth- park to pe- tition for a representative.— Mr. EWART denied that he had made any misstatements on the subject. If indeed he had been inclined to indulge in misstatements, he might easily have taken a lesson from the right hon. gentleman himself, for who was there who was not acquainted'with the singular accuracy of lhat right lion, gen- tleman's historical statements, which were only to he equalled by the modesty with which they were delivered? He sought nut to rival the right hon. gentleman in his proverbial inaccuracy and ter giversation.— Mr. CliOKER said, that the hon. gentleman had said, that he might take a lesson from him ( Mr. Cruker). He should have one. It ri this. What he had charged the hon. gentleman with he had stated in a parliamentary way, fairly, openly, and without disguise. Had the hon. gentleman done so by him? He begged to infdrin the hon. gentleman that he laughed lo scorn the mean and calumnious insinuations which the hon. gentleman had indulged in towards Itini. ( Cheers, aud cries of Order, order.) Would the hon gentleman be pleased to tell him what action of his ( Mr. Croker's) life, what word that might have fallen front him in his various addresses— what statement that he had ever made, that he could put his finger on, aud venture to attack or contradict it? " When a man," continued the right hon. gentleman, " has a bad case, he is always most ready and anxious to pick a quarrel. Now, ' though I am nut one that has ever been desirous to do so, I beg to tell the hon. gentleman lhat I shall be ready fur him in whatever place he shall choose to quarrel with me." ( Order, order.) The CHAIRMAN— I put it to the good sense and parliamentary ex- perience of the right hou. gentleman, whether he thinks it worth his while to proceeil in such a course as this. Mr. CROKER You have put the thing in a way, Sir, lhat I cannot possibly resist your request. I quite agree with you that it is not worth my while to go on with this discussion. ( Cheers, and a laugh from the oppo- sition.) Towards the close of the debate, Mr. STANLEY said that, before they proceeded further, he was sure that the committee would join with him in the anxiety to have the unpleasant circum- stance which had taken place between the right hon. gentleman op- posite and his hon. friend near him mutually and satisfactorily ex- plained. ( Hear, hear.) He was certain that both those hon. members in the heat of debate had used expressions which in their cooler moments they regretted, and to which they had not intended to give utterance. The woid " tergiversation" had been used by his lion, friend inadvertently, and, obviously, unintentionally, as any one might have seen from the pause which he made while look- ing for a word lo end the sentence. He was confident lhat the right hon. gentleman opposite would not, in his cooler moments, adhere to the use of such expressions as " mean and calumnious in- sinuations," and he was quite certain that both the hon. members would be ready mutually to disclaim any intention of offering per- sonal offence. ( Hear.) Mr. EWART said lhat he never meant to give expression to any ungenerous sentiment towards the right hon. gentleman ; and that if any thing of the kintl could be collected from what had fallen from him, he had not intended it. He was nol able to cope with Ihe right hon. gentleman, who had words at his command in debate, and when, therefore, he used the word tergiversation," he never meant to convey the imputation which might be derived from the use of such a word. He should be deeply sorry to cast even the shadow of such an imputation on the right hon. gentleman. Mr. CROKER said, that what had given him most offence was the assertion of the hon. member that his ( Mr. Croker's,) inaccuracy had become proverbial. If the hon. mem- ber meant by that assertion to convey an offensive insinuation, he ( Mr. Croker) should still adhere to his original reply to it. If he did not, his ( Mr. Croker's) reply was uncalled for, and fell to the grt und, and he had only to regret lhat the hon. member had not given an explanation upon that point.— Mr. EWART.— In applying the term " inaccuracy" to the statements of the right hon. gentleman, I merely meant it in the sense that he had applied it to mine. ( Hear, hear.) After a few words from Sir C. Wetherell, Mr. Hunt, Mr. A. Baring, and Sir M. W. Ridley, the gallery was cleared for a division, when the numbers were— For the original motion, 214- ] Against it, 167 | Majority, 47 TUESDAY, MARCH 6. EDUCATION IN IRELAND.— Mr. J. GORDON presented three petitions against the proposed board of education in Ireland, from parishes in the counties of Londonderry, and Down, and from Clonmell, The hon. member supported the prayer of the petition. — Lord ACHESON said, that having been intrusted with a peti- tion similar to that which had been presented by the hon. member for Dundalk, and having been in vain attempting for some time past to present it, he would, with the leave of the house, take ihe oppor- tunity of making some remarks upon it. The petition emanated ftom a highly- respectable and influential body of men, the Presby- terian Ministers of the General Synod of Ulster, convened for the purpose of taking into consideration the plan of education recom- mended by his Majesty's Government to be adopted in Ireland. The petitioners began by expressing Iheir gratitude for the assist- ance hitherto granted by parliament for the purposes of education in Ireland ; they however viewed with regret the change of system proposed by his Majesty's government. He was no supporter of this plan of education, hut as a friend and well- wisher of govern- ment, as a man who supported ministers because he was convinced that their object was to steer a middle course between the two ex- tremes of party, ( hear, hear,) lie must protest, and he did it con- scientiously, against the insinuations— nay more, the positive asser- tions— which had been made in Ireland, that the object, he re- peated it, the object of government had been to deprive the Pro- testants of the Bible. He appealed to any fair and unprejudiced man who had an eye to read, or a particle of common sense to un- derstand, the plan laid down by his right hon. friend, tile Secre- tary for Ireland, in his letter to the Duke of Leinster— he appealed to lhat man, and by his decision would he abide, whether, on the face of that plan, there w as a sentence which could be construed to imply such a motive on the part of Government. ( Hear, hear.) He appealed to the house whether, in the conduct of his right hon. friend, or of the noble earl at the head of the administration, any thing had ever appeared to justify such ail insinuation. Why, the plan not only stated distinctly that two days in the week, besides Sunday, were to be given up to religious instruction ; but also minis ters were recommended to give religious instruction to the children of their respective persuasions befure and after school Hours, on other days; and it was expressly stated, that ihe extracts used as a schuol book on days appointed fur moral and literary education were by no means intended to convey a perfect and efficient religi- ous education, or to supersede the necessity of religious instruction, on the days set apart for lhat purpose. If a doubt could exist as to the motives of government, this, in his opinion, would be quite suf ficient to dispel it. ( Loud cries of hear.) Why had had motives been imputed to the present government? Why had they not been imputed to those who were the original framers of this plan of education, from whose report his right hon. friend's letter had been taken in many respects verbatim ? ( Cheers.) He imputed no mo- tives— he only stated facts. ( Hear, hear.) The present' Go- vernment was a Whig Government— the then Government was of an opposite character in its politics. There was no reform question pending in those days— there was no object then in inflaming the minds of men against government. ( Continued cheers.) Sir A. JOHNSTONE supported the prayer of the petitions.— Mr. STANLEY was far from saying that this system was a perfect one ; but it was the best that could be. devised under existing circum- stances. Government was endeavouring to introduce a system which would unite Protestants and Catholics, and which, in the words of the Holy Scriptures, would produce what was considered the fruit of the said Christian religion— Inve, peace, meekness, and gentleness. In the prosecution of this plan Government would make no sacrifice of principle ; there would be no departure from a sys- tem which the most scrupulous Protestant Would sanction. The charge made against Government was, that they were about to consent to the mutilation of the Scriptures. It was inconceivable how much misrepresentation and clamour had taken place upon this point. He had been asked whether he would pay respect to the petitions of 220,000 Protestants of Ireland, directed against the new system of education ? He was disposed to treat the petitions of the people with the greatest respect; but when he looked at the manner in which these petitions were got up, and the allegations on which they were founded, he was justified in saying that the peti- tions were not directed against the system, with which the persons who signed them were little acquainted. The petitioners were in- duced to sign the petitions by being asked whether they would pe- tition against a system which Would rob their Protestant children of their dearest inheritance, the free and unrestricted use of the Bible. ( Hear.) They petitioned not against the system, but, as they were taught, against being deprived of the use of the Bible. He defied any person to point out a passage in the statement which he had put forth which could bear such a construction. It was part of Ihe plan proposed by his Majesty's Government, lhat no books should be placed in the hands of the children, except those which had been approved of by the board of commissioners.— But it was said that Government were about to mutilate the Bible. He ask^ d those persons who raised this cry, whether they would, as fathers, place the Scriptures in the hands of their children, and leave them lo their uninstructed and unaided use? ( A member: " That is not the question.") He begged pardon ; it was the ques- tion. Did ministers deny the' use of religious instruction? No suclt thing; they merely contended that it ought not to be used as a schuol book, in schools where Protestants and Catholics mixed together. Certain days in the week were to he set apart fur Ihe religious instruction of the children, and then the whole of the Scriptures would be placed in their hands. It now remained to be seen whether the bitterness of party and ' political feeling should preclude two great bodies of the Irish community from having iheir children educated together— from improving those children in the practice of the social charities, and from giving more elevated no- tions of religion in their respective creeds, which would be equally beneficial to all; for though he was sensible of the errors of the Catholic church, still he conceived it better to have a good Ca- tholic than a bad Protestant. ( Cheers.) In conclusion, he main- tained lhat ihe measure of Government, if it received a fair trial, would produce the best effects for the future tranquillity and inter- ests of Ireland. ( Hear.)— Mr. LEFROY said, that the question simply was, w- htiller the new system of Irish national education' were nut opert to objectiuli, not only oh the ground of its being un Protestant, but of being likewise un- Christian. ( Hear.) The charge whiCll he should prefer directly against the system was, that it actually excluded the Scriptures from forming any part of it. For this reason he must dissent from Ihe eulogium pronounced upon the plan by the right bun. gentleman ( Mr. Stanley) as the subject of that eulugiuai involved a departure from the basis of all Christian principle. In testimony of this, they had the letter of the right hon. genlletlian, and the fact of the old system being Superseded which allowed the reading of the Scriptures without note or com- ment. It did not appear to him to be of any advantage that the new plan provided selections as recommended by former commiltees. He must persevere in c. bjectihg to a system which recommended these selections to the exclusion of the Scriptures themselves.— Mr. CRAMI'TON contended at Considerable length that the prin- ciples and spirit of religioh were more consulted in the plan of mi- nisters than it was in Ihe plan of the Kildare- street Society. The Protestants c. f ihe north of Ireland were not unanimous in their opposition to the plan of education proposed by ministers; and he was because the people had been u'eceiyed in being told that the Bible was to form no part of the education proposed. It had been so stated at the meeting which had been field at Exeter- hall, and which had been attended by many noble lords and hon. gentlemen, and at which many . eloquent— he wished he could add wise— speeches had been made. He had been induced to attend that meeting himself, and was prepared to have defended Ihe Govern- ment tu which he had the honour to be attached from the imputa- tions by which they were assailed; but on looking to the ticket of admission, he had found an indorsement on the back, containing the direction that no one would be allowed to take part in the pro- ceedings of Ihe meeting but such as were opposed lo the proposed plan and favourable to the resolutions to be adopted bv the meet- ing. (" Hear," and laughter); and now the hon. member for Dundalk triumphs in what he is pleased to designate the unani- mity which pervaded that meeting." Was this, he would ask, fair, and was it not rather too unparliamentary a mode of proceed- ing? The question was simply, whether the Roman Catholic po- pulation of Ireland were to have any or no education.— Several olher members expressed their opinions for and against the pro- posed system of education in Ireland.— The petition was finally brought up, and ordered to be printed. LORD PLUNKET— Mr. G. DAWSON in moving for sotile returns respecting an appointment by the Lord Chancellor iu iris court, took occasion to animadvert very severely on his Lordship.- In the course of his speech, Mr. Dawson made a variety of serious charges, which were as strongly denied by other members. He gave the supposed amount of the emoluments of the Plunkett family as follows :— Lord Plunket, Chancellor, 8,0001. ; the Hon. P. Plunkett, Purse Bearer, 800/., Secretary of Bankrupts, 900?., and Counsel to the Chief Remembrancer of the Exchequer, 3.50i.; thd Hou. D. Plunked, Prothonotary of the Common Pleas, 1,500/., and Examiner of tiie Common Pleas, 1110/. There were, besides, under these gentlemen three general clerks with a salary of 500/. each; principal assistant of Common Pleas relating to judgments, 500/.; second assistant, 200/.; third assistant, 500/.; and clerk of the pleadings in the allidavit office, 400/.; with other clerks whose united salaries amounted to 1,000/.; the Honour- able J. Plunkett, Assistant Barrrister in the county of Meatb, 700/.; late Commissioner tu inquire with Respect to fees received in courts of justice, 1,200/. ( that office being now abolished, the salary had ceased since last year) ; Crown Counsel on the Munster circuit, 1,200/.; and Counsel to the Police, 8001.; the Hon. and Rev.- F. Plunkett, Dean of Down, 2,500/.; the Hon. and Rev. Wm. Pluukett, Vicar of Bray ( loud laughter,) 8001.; Mr. M'Causland, jun., 2,0001.; Mr. Long, 5001.; Mr. Wm. M'Causlaud, brother- in- law of Lord Plunkett, and father of the young man, 1,500/.; be- sides various oilier lucrative situations, making the total amount of- the public money received hy Lord Plunkett, his family, and connexions, not less than 27,850/. a- year. ( Hear, hear, hear.) Mr. CRAMPTON said lhat he did not rise lo oppose the motion, but to protest against the speech which the right hon. gentleman had made in support of that motion. A motion so dispropor- tiunen lo the speech by which it was introducecf had never before come under his observation. It likewise had never been his lot to1 hear so much misstatement as had fallen from the right hon. gen- tleman. He would not ask the house to take that assertion for granted until he had contradicted Sonie of the most material facts iu the right lion, gentleman's speech. The right hon. geritlefaifn1 stated that lreland Was dissatisfied and disgusted with the manner in which the Lord Chancellor of Ireland discharged or rather1 abandoned the duties of his office. He mentioned particularly that the Lord Chancellor came over to England in Hilary term, and that in his absence the duties of his office devolved' upon the' Master of the Rolls. The right hon. gentleman was ririsinfilrmed with respect to the whole of this statement. He had been a prac- titioner in the Court of Chancery during the greater part of his life, and he would without hesitation declare, without disparage- ment to any of the noble lord's predecessors', that never within his memory had tile duties of lite business of ihe court beeit discharged with so much diligence, c'ispatch, and satisfaction to the suitors as during the period Lord Plunket had presided there. H? knew' that his lordship Was disliked in a particular quarter. The cry which was raised against him was' fhat of party, of politics and for-' gotry, not of the'country^. ( Hear.) After a lengthened and rather angry discussion, the motion, with an amendment for further returns moved by Mr. H. Grattan, was agreed to. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7. Several petitions for, and a few against the factories' regulation bill were presented. WEST INDIA AFFAIRS— The Marquis ofCHANDOS pre- sented a petition from the West India planters and proprietors, complaining of extreme distress, and praying that the house- would- not re- impose the duties on sugar. FRENCH EXPEDITION TO ANCONA— Lord ALTHORP moved that the house should resolve itself into a committee of way* and means. Sir It. V YVYAN said that, seeing the noble Secretary for For- eign Affairs in his place, he would take the liberty of calling his'at- tention to a subject of no small importance— namely, the entry o( the French troops into the Papal territories. The interference of the French iu the internal affairs of Italy stood upon grounds totally different from that of the Austrian!, The latter were justified in interfering, under an invitation, to put down rebellion ; but the French appeared tu have entered Italy without any invitation. He wished to hear froin the noble lord whether any communications had taken place between tbe governments of England and Francs- relative to the expedition to Ancona, and whether the expedition had sailed with Ihe approbation of the Government of his Britannic- Majesty. There was also another point of considerable importance, on which he wished to be informed— namely, whetlrer the Sove- reign of the Papal territories had acquiesced in ihe landing of the- French troops in his dominions ? He would, therefore, inquire of the noble lord opposite— first, whether Ihe French expedition to Italy had been undertaken with the acquiescence of his Majesty's government; and, secondly, whether ii had met with the concur- rence ol the great continental powers. Lord PALMERSTON said,; that with respect to the two questions of the hon. baronet, he was sure the house would understand his motives when he stated that he did not consider himself at' liberty, consistently with the discharge of his public duties, to enter upon any communications that had oc- curred between his Majesty's government and France relative to this expedition, and still less upon such communications as might have passed between the government of France and the other Eu- ropean powers. This was not the' time when he should deem it ex- pedient to meet the hon. gentleman in discussing the conduct of the French government. He did not, he repeated, consider it con- sistent with his public duty to give an answer to the questions of1 the hon. baronet, but he did not hesitate to inform the house, that/ so far as his Majesty's government were informed, there was no rea- son to apprehend that the affairs of Italy would nol be adjusted without a breach of the general peace. Sir R. PEEL was not in- clined to blame his noble friend for not making what he conceived to be a premature disclosure: at the same time, he must say, that from the information which had reached them through ordinary sources, it was impossible to avoid viewing the conduct of the French government, if not with anxiety, at least with suspicion* He did not know on what grounds Austria had interfered, but it appeared that the French government, without any invitation,' had invaded a part of Europe. Now there seemed to him to be just reasons for fearing this as an evil precedent unless full explanation were given. ( Hear.) If the expedition were a concession of- the government of France to a certain faction in that country, his appre- hensions would be still further increased. . Let'them view the expe- dition in connection with other events. They had seen, within the last six months, a French army introduced into Belgium. France- waS strengthening herself on the shores of the Mediterranean. She occupied Algiers, and her troops, which had been despatched for the pacification of a portion of Greece, still remained there, and perhaps fof good reasons. At the present period a French expedi- tion had landed on part of the Papal territories. He would abstain from saying more, because his noble friend had stated that the time for explanations had not yet arrived— yet, on balancing the possi- bilities of inconvenience, he was of opinion that greater advantage would be derived from giving explanation, than in allowing the matter to pass before the House of Comu onsin fota- l apathy.— Sir opposition to me plan oi eaucauon proposeu uy IUUHSICIS, aim uc ~—• —- — j — could venture to assert, that where opposition most prevailed, it J VY V YAN said that he did not bring a charge against the gp March 11. THE TOWItf, Vqrntuent of France, but against that faction to which his right hon. friend ( Sir R. Peel) had alluded. The hon. bart. disclaimed hav- ing attached blame to his Majesty's government for not interfering. Lord PALMERSTON was glad to find that the hon baronet had not referred to the government of France, but to tbe propaganda faction. With respect to what had fallen from his right hon. friend op the subject of Belgium, Algiers, and Greece, it was really due V> tiie French government to remove false impressions as to its con- duct with regard to these places. If the French troops had ad- • earned into Belgium, it was strj, ctly in accordance with the principles and the spirit in which France and the Allies had acted— it was an act calculated to preserve the peace of Europe, and perfect good faith had been maintained throughout. French troops had been sent to Greece, in common with the allies, and their stay there was in consistency with the . views and wishes of the three powers. Res- pecting the occupation of Algiers, his right hon. friend must be aware of the nature of the explanations and assurances which the then government had deemed it necessary to receive on that point. After a few wof. ds from Sir R. Peel the discussion dropped. TWO PENNY POST- OFFICE— On the motion that the ljouse do resolve itself into a Committee of Ways and Means, Mr. pROKER rose to complain of certain Post- office regulations, fv right lion, gentleman stated that while the facilities for the de- spatch of letters to the suburbs of London were more numerous than in other places, such as Liverpool, Ihe delay was greater and the rate of postage higher.— Mr. S. RICE said that the sub- ject should be inquired into, and the conveyances accelerated as much as possible. As to the rate of postage, the two- penny post was a more expensive establishment than the penny post of sub- ordinate towns. MUNICIPAL POLICE.— Sir R. PEEL had a question to put to the noble lord opposite ( Althorp). In December the house had agreed to an address . to the King, in which they assured his Ma- jesty that they would direct their attention to the best means of improving the municipal police of the kingdom. The question he wished to ask was, whether the Government intended to introduce any legislative measure for the purpose of establishing a police on the principle, he hoped, of tbe metropolitan police, or whether it was intended to devolve the arrangement on the local authorities? — Lord ALTHORPsaid that the subject referred to by the right hon. baronet was under the deepest consideration of Government, and it was intended to bring forward a measure respecting it. The measure, however, was not yet sufficiently perfect to be laid be- fore the house.— Sir C. WETHERELL did not believe that, from the time when the address to the King was agreed to till ihe pre- sent hour, a single step had been taken on the point. The magis- trates of Bristol were happy that a prosecution would give them an opportunity of defending themselves— a prosecution granted by a Government who had degraded and subjugated themselves to popular clamour and a base and- corrupt press.— The ATTOR- NEY- GENERAL- could not refrain from expressing his surprise and indignation at tbe extraordinary declaration which his ho- nourable and learned friend had just made, when he said that his Majesty's ministers had degraded themselves by submitting to the subjugation of a base press, and by ordering a prosecution against the magistrates of Bristol, in obedience to popular clamour. ( Loud cries of" hear.") On what authority had he ventured to bring so unworthy an accusation against them ? ( Hear, hear.) He could assure the house that. it was not in obedience to any clamour from any quarter, but upon a full, and anxious, and patient considera- tion of all the circumstances, that Government had ordered, and that he, as law- officer of the Crown, had filed an information against the magistrates of Bristol. He could likewise assure the house, that it was only because he fi » d filed 8 » information against them that he abstained from saying a wo/ d as to their conduct. It was due both to those who had directed the prosecution, and to those who might possibly sufferfrom it, that the case should not undergo premature discussion. To enter into any such explanation as he ( the At- torney- General) could give upon it, would be most improper; but even that would not be half so improper as the course adopted by his hon. and learned f'iend, which was to cast such reflections upon the Government as naturally led to recriminations of that nature, which on every principle of justice ought to be avoided at present. ( Hear.) After a few words from Mr. R. A. DUNDAS, The house resolved itsejf into a committee of ways and means. SUGAR DUTIES.— Lord ALTHORP rose to propose the re- newal of the existing sugar duties for the next six months ; and in doing so, he was sorry to say that although he was aware of the great distress which prevailed in the West Indies, he could not propose to make any alteration or reduction iu iliem. He believed that any small reduction in the sugar duties would be of no service to the colonists, and he was sure that a large reduction could not be made in the present condition of tbe finances of the country. It had been pressed upon him, however, by some of the leading members of the West India interest, that he ought to give them some specific pledge of future relief ; but he thought that it would be highly impolitic in him to give any such pledge, as any plan of prospective relief to the West Indian interest would in all probabi- lity clash with some other important interest of the country. He was ready, however, to say that it was his intention to propose a fiscal measure of relief for tbe West Indian interest during the pre- sent session ; but at the same time he would not disguise it from the House, that this fiscal measure of relief would not go to the same extent as a large reduction of the duty. In bringing forward that fiscal measure, he felt himselfbound to recollect the pledge which he had given, in the last session of Parliament, to the House in general, and to the hop. member for Weymouth in particular— namely, that it was the intention of the Government, in any relief iwhich they might propose to extend to the West Indies, to make a distinction between those colonies which had accepted and those colonies which had refused to accept our regulations. By that pledge he intended to abide, and that was an additional reason why he found it impossible to bring forward any specific plan of pros- pective relief as hon. gentlemen on the other side of the House called for. He then moved that, towards raising the supplies of money granted to his Majesty, the several duties on suL and molasses imposed by an act passed in the first year of bis present Majesty, and the bounties granted thereon, be continued till the end of October next. The Marquis of CHAN DOS had heard the declaration just made by the noble lord with feelings of the deepest sorrow and regret. He contended that a reduction of the duty ou sugar would increase the consumption of sugar, and by so doing would increase the amount of revenue. If the noble lord would hold out to the house any pledge of reducing, prospectively, the duties on sugar, he would not move any amend- ment to the noble lord's proposition ; but if the noble lord would not hold out sucli pledge, he would move an amendment, and take the sense of the house upon it. ( Lord Althorp gave no sign of acceding to the noble marquis's proposition). The noble marquis concluded by moving " that all brown, muscovado, and clayed sugars imported from the British possessions in America and the Mauritius, be im- ported at a duty of 20s. per cwt." This was merely a reduction of the duty of 4s. on each cwt. Mr. K. DOUGLAS seconded the amendment. Lord SANDON had hoped that some expression of feeling and sympathy for the condition of the West India trade would have fallen from his Majesty's government on the pre- sent occasion, which would have satisfied and given confidence, liot only to the West India Colonies, but the entire country ; and without such an expression, he feared that those connected with those colonies must make up their minds to lose them. He con- ceived that the view taken by the noble lord, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in the present instance, was very short- sighted, and it was wilh great regret that he ( Lord Sandon) felt himself induced, in the discbarge of the duty he owed to those whom he had the honour to represent, to support the amendment. Mr. HUME said, that the pledge which had been given that the duties on sugars should be reduced, had never been redeemed, and he could not but think, that now, after the committee which had been appointed to investigate the state of the West India colonies had pointed out this as the only means by which the distresses of the colonist would at once be relieved, and the interests of the con- sumer served, the time was come for making the reduction. With these views, therefore, he should support the amendment.— Mr. C. FEKGUSSON agreed in what had fallen from the hon. member for Middlesex, and thought that a diminution in the duty on sugar would tend to increase the consumption, aud therefore no defalca- ion iu the revenue was to be anticipated. He concurred in Ihe re- solution which had been adopted by the committee to which this question had been referred, that if ihe house should agree to a di- minution of the duties on West India sugars, it would but be fair to extend the reduction to the East India commodity.-— Sir C. WETHERELL said, that on referring to the conduct of the go- vernment, first on the timber question, next on the wine duties, and lastly on the present question, be could not but think that their whole line of conduct was anti- colonial. He concurred in the mo- tion of his noble friend.— Mr. WARBURTON said that the only mode of affording relief to the consumer and the planter was to adopt such a resolution as that contained in the amendment. Mr. P. THOMSON complained that any discussion should have arisen, and been followed, on the resolutions contained in the report of a committee not yet laid upon the table of the house. He denied that the proposition of the noble lord would give any per- manent relief to the colonies. His noble friends in proposing the continuance of the duties for six months, had stated that it was in- tended to give fiscal relief to these colonies. Those fiscal regula- tions, accompanied with certain conditions, his noble friend had pledged himself to bring forward. It was of the utmost import- ance for those who supported the noble lord's proposition, to con- sider whether by passing the resolution they would not entirely an- nihilate all hope of redeeming the pledge to which he had alluded, and of enforcing those conditions that were meant to accompany those fiscal regulations, and which were of great interest to the rights of suffering humanity.— Lord HOWICK said that the house and the Government were pledged not to give relief to the planter, unless on the condition of relief being given to the slave, and if the house now agreed to the motion of the noble lord, and reduced the duty on sugar to the amount he proposed, it would be giving relief to the planter, without the fulfilment of such a condition. Mr. GOULBURN said, the risk to the revenue which would be incurred by the adoption of the proposition of his noble friend near him, would be little, if at all, greater than that which must follow the, proposition of the noble lord opposite. This measure of continuing the duty for six months only, accompanied as it was by a statement of intended fiscal relief to the West Indies, was one, he would maintain, that was calculated to embarrass the opera- tions of the trade in the greatest possible degree, and to prevent all who could help doing so from purchasing, until they saw that which they would, of course, expect effected— namely, some partial re- duction made in the duty on sugar. It was on these grounds that he supported the motion of his noble friend near him-— Mr. Burge, Mr. Robinson, Mr. P. Stewart, Mr. Adeane, and Mr. Hunt, ex- pressed themselves iu favourof the amendment.— Mr. A. BARING said, w, i, th respect to the present proposition, he thought it could do no good to this country, or afford any material relief to the suf- ferers, although, as the expression of sympathy, it might in the present slate of their affairs be of some service. The real question was, however, just this— Would a reduction of duty increase the revenue ? He thought not. And in the present financial condition of this country, lie could not, under such circumstances, hazard so large a portion of revenue on the experiment proposed by the noble lord, in opposition to whose motion he must at present give his vole.— Mr. F. BUXTON would be glad to relieve the planter ; but when he knew, that by the mode of relief sought a greater burden would be thrown on the negro, he could not consent to it. The noble lord was, iu his opinion, right to refuse the Planter relief until the Planters had given the mitigation to which they were pledged. — Mr. JAMES had no wish to embarrass bis Majesty's Ministers, and would therefore vote with them,— The Committee then divided : For Ihe Amendment, 134; Against it, 148— Majority; 14. On our return to the gallery, wc found the Speaker in the Chair. The House then resolved itself into a Committee on the Reform n Parliament Bill. REFORM BILL.— After some opposition on the part of Mr. Croker, Sir C. Wetherell, Mr. S. Wortley, Mr. Goulbum, and Lord G. Somerset, it was agreed that South Shields, Tynemouth, and Wakefield should stand part of schedule D. In the course of thediscussion on SouthShields Mr. HODGSON disputed the ac- curacy of ihe right hon. member for Aldborough's view of the case both as to the population of South Shields and the breadth of the river.— Mr. CROKER proved that his statement was correct, by reference to the general population returns, and observed that was the statement which the honourable member dared to contradict. Mr. HODGSON acknowledged that in the one instance he had been incorrect, but still contended that the Tyne was half a mile across, and the word " dare" he threw back upon the right hon. gentleman with all the courtesy to which he was obliged by the rules of the house ; but if the right honourable gentleman liked, he might re- peat the word elsewhere. Mr. CROKER said he had not meant any imputation against the hon. member, in using the word dare. He did not doubt the hon. member's courage, but he denied his statements— the only other fact he had put forward— namely, that the Tyne was half a mile across— was likewise incorrect. Lord ALTHORP said lie intended to propose that the house do sit on Saturday next. The House then resumed, the Chairman reported progress, and obtained leave to sit again on Friday.— The House adjourned at half- past one o'clock. THURSDAY, MARCH 8. Several petitions relative to tithes and national education in Ireland, hemp duties, factories' regulation bill, & c. were pre- sented. Sir M. W. RIDLEY moved for leave to bring in a bill to amend the act 20 Geo. II. cap. 38, relative to the merchant seamens 6d. paid towards Greenwich Hospital.— Sir JAMES GRAHAM opposed the motion, which was withdrawn. Sir W. INGILBY moved for the returns of copies of a cor- respondence connected with the two regiments of South Lincoln Militia. The motion was negatived without a division. IRISH TITHES.— Mr. STANLEY rose and said that he would not then enter into any detail upon the report of the committee on the question of Irish tithes, but at once proceed to move for a committee of the whole house, on the ground that it would afford a wider scope for debate and give him a better opportunity to explain and state the whole of the plan of Go- vernment.— Mr. BROWNLOW said that it was scarcely fair to call upon honourable members to discuss a subject of that sort in committee, the house being at the time in perfect ignorance of the views and intentions of his Majesty's Government, for it was generally taken for granted, that when the House went into committee, it stood pledged at least to the principle of the reso- lutions proposed. He admitted that the clergy of Ireland did not exact a share of produce at all corresponding to the exac- tions in England ; that the avarice and oppression of the . clergy were not the causes whence the resistance had arisen. The ma- jority of the people, he said, were of one religion, and the in- structors, the moral teachers, and paid clergy, were of another That was the great blunder which had been committed. Of all the blunders ever committed by Irishmen, of all their bulls, there was something ludicrous, some stroke of wit, some touch of merriment, some mirth— but in this bull there was no re- deeming quality— it had no merriment, no mirth, no laughter in it. He should, under the circumstances, move as an amend- ment, the adjournment of the debate till the whole of the in quiry was concluded by the tithe committee, and the evidence aud report both laid before the house.— Lord MILTON did not arraign the course proposed by the hon. gentleman who moved the amendment, but merely doubted its usefulness. He hoped the house would not be induced to adopt the amendment, but would go into committee without delay.— Mr. O'CONNELL said a few words in support of the amendment.— Sir R. PEEL, without expressing any opinion on the merits of the measures, but reserving to himself full power to discuss them when pronounced, did not hesitate to say, that the course pur- sued on the present occasion by his Majesty's Government was most conformable with the practice of the house. By supporting the motion, no hon. gentleman pledged himself in the least to the proposition of the Government, and he there- fore could not help thinking that all must concur in the course proposed by the right hon. gentleman the Secretary for Ireland, by which, as he had before said, a security was given against precipitate decision. ( Hear, hear.)— Mr. SHEIL said that a little reflection would convince the right lion, baronet that the Irish members were not unreasonable in the course they had adopted. They did not object to the resolutions. They had not, like the noble lord ( Lord Milton) sufficient sagacity to conjec- ture the course which the Government meant to take. They objected to the premature report of which the committee had been suddenly and abortively delivered. ( Hear, hear.) Wait, they said, for the final report. ( Hear, hear.) Therefore, they met the proposition of the minister on the threshold, and said, " Do not act on a report resting exclusively on evidence on one side." Out of 18 witnesses they had examined only one Catho- lic witness ( hear, hear, hear), and then they produced their re- port, and went on with their examination. It was as if the jury were desired to retire on the closing of the plaintiff's case ; they find their verdict, judgment ( the report) is pronounced, and then the defendant ( Ireland) was requested to proceed with her case. ( Cheers.) Was this just, was this fair dealing ? Was this pure, impartial, British justice ? Eight clergymen, four policemen, a secretary to an ecclesiastical commission, a registrar to an ec- clesiastical court, had been examined, and on such evidence, a report recommending coercion to the people, and largesses to the clergy, was produced. ( Hear, hear.) This was monstrous. If the committee had confined themselves to the recommendation of charity to the clergy, the Irish members could not complain; but they came here with a purse of gold for the church, and a rod of iron for the people. ( Hear, hear.) But since you are so strict in investigating the offences of the one, what are the merits of the other.? The evidence proves that the clergy have ministered to the excitement. Look at the evidence of Mr. Langrishe, ( a name familiar to the readers of Edmund Burke). He tells you that Dr. Hamilton, of Knocktopher ( the scene of sanguinary disturbance), refused a just composition, and refused twice to produce his books in order to enable a just estimate of his profits to be made. Dr. Butler writes that he is a starving exile ; yet he admits that, for thirty- six years, he has received 2,000?. a year. He. has 14 parishes, with scarcely asingle Pro- testant. This splendid sinecurist— he may be a good man— lias got 60,000?.; and he is one of the objects of eleemosynary com- miseration to the committee. ( Loud cries of Hear, hear.)— What are you doing ? Succouring a clergy from which you expect nothing, affronting and irritating a nation from which you look for much, opening the boiling fountain of popular in- dignation, leaguing a nation against you by your threats of coer- cion. We have served and supported you, and stood by you in many an emergency, and have received your praise for our zeal, our vigilance, our devotion to your interests. Reform, an elec- tion in November, and Ireland exasperated for the sake of cer- tain persons of the establishment 1 Awake 1— you are on a pre- cipice, and you must be rudely shaken, to rouse you from your perilous slumbers. But he might be told that relief was offered. What relief ? It is a mere mockery of the national understanding Tithes are to be abolished. How ? By providing for them a sepulchre from which they are to arise in an immortal resuscita- tion. Nay, he did not exaggerate. We are informed that tithes are to be abolished, and, uno flatu, that the revenues of the church are to be effectually secured on land. What does this mean ? Is it not a palpable contradiction, or is it not as if a judgment creditor were to say " Sir, this judgment of mine may be incommodious, and in order to accommodate you, I shall oblige you by taking a mortgage, or, if you prefer it, a slice of your estate." It is hetter to speak out at once. The collection of tithes is not the question. John Hampden was sent to gaol for 20s. ; but the question is, shall the tithes be otherwise ap- propriated ? I tell you, that a deep conviction has seized hold of the nation's faculties, and taken possession of itsentire heart, that church property is the nation's property. It is idle to tell the people that it rests on the same right as private property, and that an inroad upon one will afford a precedent for an inva- sion of the other. This is mere phrase— grainless and empty apothegms— with which we arenotto be caught. I'll tell you how matters stand. The Irish nation look back to their history, and they find tithes originally divided into four parts, of which one- fourth was given to the poor, and another fourth was given to the priest of the poor. They find the Protestant gentry and aristocracy leagued in 1735 against the tithe of agistment, and pronouncing their parliamentary anathemas against all those who should, in violation of their ordinances dare to pay it— they see the statesmen of their own House of Commons ( for once they had a House of Commons), the best and most enlightened Irishmen, confederated against tithes— they look round Europe and they see tithes every where abolished— in France, in Bel- gium, in Holland, in Sweden, in Norway, in Denmark, in Prussia, in Tuscany, in Scotland— they see in Scotland a poor church in a rich country, and in Ireland a rich church amidst a starving people ; and with these facts before them, and with the recollection fresh and vivid of what they have themselves achieved— conscious of what was effected by a virtuous organi- zation— knowing that here they had a body of firm and daunt- less advocates of their rights, they have arrived at the determi- nation to put to these hideous abuses, these enormous anomalies, an immediate end. I perceive that what I say is not relished by either party ; but it is the truth. To both parties I fearlessly address myself. Conservatists and reformers, I speak to both of you ; you that are the prompt auxiliaries of the government in every project of coercion— you that are to have none of the res- ponsibility, and are to reap all the advantage— you that would fain help the ministers to their ruin— think a little, and look back to the year 1829. What did your great captain do ?— he who was pledged almost from childhood against emancipation— he who had declared that Ireland ought to be reconquered— who left his proxy against Ireland, when he went forth to fight thosebattlesin which English victory was achieved with Irish blood — he was the first to offer homage to the will of an united peo- ple, and after having called on England to throw away the scabbard, was the first to implore her to put by the sword. — Wherefore do I mention this ? To ask of you ( for Tories I speak to you), whether you think the Whigs ought, after eman cipation, to act on the principle on which you did not dare to act before it ? ( Cheers.) Reformers, I turn from your anta- gonists to you I Do you imagine that your principles do not extend beyond a reform in the House of Commons ? What course did you pursue in the conduct of this great proceeding ? Did you appoint a committee ? Did you refer schedule A to the right hon. member for Tamworth ? Did you name a committee formed of all partis ( this is the phrase), to inquire into the state of the Boroug ® of England, and the constitution of the House of Commons, ItM to " report their observations thereon ?" No— you saw that hesitation for a moment would be ruin for ever— you grasped at the irrevocable occasion, and you seized, and held it. " We must content the English people." This was your answer to every objection.. Take warning in time— what is your policy ? You have got up"! l| j^ race between legislation and events ; an incident happens, straight comes an act of Parlia- ment ; another incident arrives, behold a committee, and ano- ther act of Parliament: thus you go on, running a race with events, and events are sure to win it.— The hon. member con eluded a speech of great eloquence and energy, amid loud cheers. Mr. WALLACE said that at present it was impossible to know what measures Ministers meant to propose ; he should, there fore, give his opposition to the motion for a committee.— Mr. GRATTAN said he must, however unwillingly, oppose the Government on the present occasion.^— Lord EBRINGTON was a member of the committee which had adopted the report on which the present motion was founded, and felt it. right to say, that whilst he expressed his concurrence with that report, he also agreed with his hon. friend ( Mr. Brownlow) that the church of Ireland was an uujustifiable anomaly in the constitution of the country, when compared with the wants and intelligence of the age. He also agreed with him that he could not consider any measure in the light of a satisfactory and final settlement of the tithe question which did not involve a thorough reform of the established church in Ireland. If he saw Ministers bent on coer- cive measures only, without an accompanying pladge of a remedy for the grievances which had occasioned these measures, hewould not support them. But as he was confident that they not only contemplated such a remedial measure, but would hold out the most liberal inducement to the people of Ireland to pay up their arrears of tithes, where it could be done without oppression otf undue severity, he concurred with the recommendation of the report.— Lord ALTHORP said the only objection of weight he had heard against the motion was, that there was not sufficient evidence before the house to warrant their going into a committee. But information was not so imperfect. It was proved that very many of the clergy were in very great distress ; but a spirit of organized opposition to the payment of tithes had existed for some time in one part of Ireland, which, if not checked in time, would shortly extend all over the country ; and it was true, the state of things in that country, generally speaking, was such as to induce the legislature to devise some measure of change ill. the tithe system. It was the duty of the house, as it was cer- tainly the duty of ministers, indeed both would be acting incon- sistently with honour and duty if they did not promptly apply themselves to affording a remedy to the urgent grievance, whilst they devoted their best attention to preventing a recurrence of the causes of that grievance. This was all that ministers proposed in the present instance.— Mr. LEADER expressed himself in favour of the amendment.— Sir HENRY PARNELL said, that he felt himself bound to support the amendment which had been proposed by the hon. member for Armagh. He could speak with some degree of cer- tainty as to what was likely to be proposed by the right hon. secretary, because he had heard the resolutions proposed in ano- ther place. There could be no doubt that the right honourable gentleman intended to propose coercive measures. He wished it to be understood that he did not object to that part of the plan which proposed to afford relief to the clergy. He believed that there was no Irish member who opposed that part of the plan. There was this extraordinary feature in the present case, that the right lion. gent, brought forward a measure which was opposed by every Irish member who usually supported the go- vernment. That alone was a sufficient reason for waiting until further evidence was before the house. Mr. GRATTAN said, that he felt himself compelled to vote against the motion for going into a committee. Mr. STANLEY said, it was clear that with whatever intention the debate had been commenced, it was impossible that he could now have an opportunity, which he had anxiously desired, of laying before the house at one view, as he would have done if he had been allowed, the line of conduct which government deemed it expedient to adopt upon this ques- tion. He confessed that the course which had been taken on this occasion, had placed the government, and him individually, more particularly, in a situation of extreme embarrassment.—-, This was the first time, he believed, that government had been blamed, because, in the progress of an inquiry upon a great question, they had taken Parliament into their councils without waiting until the investigation had closed. The house were told that the declared intention of the government to enforce obedi- ence to the law was a fatal announcement to the people of Ire- land. Was it not rather a fatal announcement indeed to the British empire to say that Parliament must not stir, must not at- tempt to enforce obedience to the law. ( Hear, hear, hear.) He had purposely abstained from entering into any explanations on moving for the committeee, and then he was told that he was endeavouring to cheat the house into the support of the measures which he was about to propo^ e- He must say, that if ever misrepresentation had been indulged in, in one case more than another, it was with respect to the measure of coercion that had been talked of, and he hoped that honourable members would, at all events, suspend their judgments upon the measure that was to be introduced, until they knew its real nature. ( Hear, hear.) The Government too had been accused— falsely and calumniously accused— of encou- raging this agitation ; and with such an impression amongst the people, and under such circumstances, was it not most likely that the combination would spread from parish to parish, frora county to county, and from province to province, if the Go- vernment did not at once interfere ? ( Loud cheers.) He hai been accused of attempting to take advantage of hon. member? but he trusted he need not disclaim the paltry imputation. He never did, and he never would, take an advantage of anyone, for he considered it would be as unjust to do so in a public mat- ter as it would be in concerns of a private nature. ( Loud cheers.) The house then divided, when the numbers were— For going into committee, 314— Against it, 31— Majority for Ministers, 283.— The other orders of the day were then disposed of, apd the house adjourned at two o'clock. FRIDAY, MARCH 9. WEST INDIAN COLONIES.— On the motion that the house resolve itself into a committee on the reform bill, The Marquis of CHANDOS rose to inquire whether the Government had received any dispatches calculated to relieve tl anxiety excited by the occurrences which had lately taken pla, ce in Jamaica and Demerara?— Lord HOWICK said, that Go vernment had that morning received dispatches from Jamaica, the contents of which were, on the whole, of a nature to be sa - tisfactory. They led to the conclusion that the insurrection was virtually suppressed. Almost all the ringleaders had been ar- rested, and most of them had suffered the penalty of their crime-, The negroes were returning to their work, and no further resistance seeemed to be apprehended. With respect to other parts of the West Indies, he was not aware of any thing calculated to create the slightest uneasiness.— The Marquis of CHANDOS said, that he had had a letter placed in his hands, dated the 30th of January, 1832, which stated that discontent prevailed in St. Lucia, in consequence of an announce- ment that the Order in Council must be entirely complied with ; that the government would not permit any modification or alte- ration of it to be made ; and if it were to be rejected by the loc^ I legislature, fiscal penalties would be resorted to. He wished to know whether the information he had received was correct ? Lord HOWICK said that the statement contained in the letter received by the noble marquis was virtually correct. When the proper time should arrive, he would be perfectly ready to defend, the measures which government had adopted after persuasion had failed. After a few words from Mr. Croker, Mr. Marryat, Mr. Burge, Lord Althorp and Sir R. Peel, the house resolved itself into committee on the Reform Bill. Mr. Bernal in the Chair. On the question that Walsall stand part of schedule D, a rather lengthened discussion took place, and the house divided, when the numbers appeared— For the motion, 165; against it, 87 ; majority, 78. A division also took place on the question, whether Whitby stand part of schedule D, the result of which was—- For the mo- tion, 221 ; against it, 120 ; majority, 101. Schedule D was then agreed to. Scheijule E, containing the list of the places in Wales sharing in the election of members, was then agreed to. Schedule F, relating to the division of counties, being read, it was agreed to mi silentio, that the following counties stand part of Schedule F 1— that is, each to return 4 members :— Cheshire, Cornwall, Cumberland, Derbyshire, Durham, Devon- shire, Essex, Glocestershire, Kent, Hampshire, Lancashire, Lei- cestershire, Norfolk, Northumberland, Northamptonshire, Not- tinghamshire, Shropshire, Somersetshire, Staffordshire, Suffolk, Surrey, Sussex, Warwickshire, Wiltshire, Worcestershire. Schedule F 2.— Counties to return three members each. It was agreed to without opposition, that the following counties should stand part of schedule F 2 :— Berkshire, Buckingham- shire, Cambridgeshire, Dorsetshire, Herefordshire, Hertford- shire, Monmouthshire, and Oxfordshire. Schedule G.— Cities and towns, and counties at large, in which cities and towns thereof are to be included. The follow- ing places were then voted part of the schedule :— Carmarthen, Chester, Coventry, Gloucester, Kingston- upon- Hull, Lincoln, and the parts of Lindsay, Holland, Newcastle- upon- Tyne, Wor- cester, York, and Ainstey. Lord ALTHORP said, he hoped that the bill would be read's third time , on Monday week. The chairman then reported progress, ahd obtained leave to sit again to- morrow.— Adjourned" 84 TIIE TOWH. March II, TO CORRESPONDENTS. We venture to request that, whenever the subject will admit, our friends will forward their communications on Thursday at latest. A Subscriber need not feel annoyance at our original articles being sometimes copied into other journals without acknow- ledgment, and then recopied as from a Morning Paper or an Evening Paper. We are glad to afford amusement, even at second hand, and we shall have so many good things that we can afford to be robbed of a few. On the whole, however, we have no reason to complain. We thank our correspondent Aristocracy, whom, from the hand- writing, we suspect to be a fair one,- but we cannot indulge her by the insertion of her lines. She has been betrayed into several inaccuracies of rhythm in the warmth of her imagina- tion. What shall we say to Democritus ? Or do we read the signature wrong ? We really cannot undertake to decipher hieroglyphics. Perhaps he will allow us to recommend Mr. Bradbury. Other correspondents will see from different parts of our Paper of to- day that attention has been paid to their remarks. G. W. W. comes rather too late. It is our misfortune to he fas- tidious : we have no taste for intelligence with the bloom off. Suppose he keeps it a week, and then sends it to the Morning Post. Scrutator will see that we hare made some use ofhis intelligence, hut we have no room for the insertion of the whole. Many thanks to our friends in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. The communications, however, were only just in time. We have no room, at present, for the longer communications of the correspondent, who asks, " Whether Lord Londonderry has not much reason to be afraid just now, seeing that he is of so choleric a temperament /" raii: TOWS. LONDON: SUNDAY, MARCH 11, 1832. The third reading of Ihe Reform Bill in the House of Commons is deferred until to- morrow week. In the mean- time, the machinery of intrigue will he at full work, and the whole power of every engine will be exerted. Nego- tiations are going forward in every party, and in every sec- tion of every party : the plot thickens, and becomes more interesting as the last act is about to open. We shall be enabled, from authentic sources, to give the denouement of the drama iu our next number— as far as it can possi- bly be known. In the meantime we trust that the people will plaee confidence in the mingled decision and discre- tion of Ministers; and if the creation of new Peers, or Other events on which their minds are anxiously bent, should not be hurried on exactly at the pace which they have expected, to make the necessary allowances for the almost unexampled difficulty and delicacy of Lord GREY'S position. The Morning Post of Thursday last makes the follow- ing announcement:—" A constitutional association, to be called the Conservative Club, is about to be formed. It -. fill consist of seven hundred members." Oh, admirably informed and most brilliant Morning Post! We have, some time since, identified it with an old lady, who hobbles about London, altogether passee : we have long thought it deficient in intellect; but it appears that its very senses must be dim with extreme age. Surely, it must be dull of sight, and hard of hearing ; and as it has ior years been crippled, we think that it has received its hree warnings, and had better make immediate prepara- ions lor its final departure. Seriously, as to the intelligence which Ihe Post commu- nicates so pompously, we knew it, and supposed that the whole town knew it, a fortnight ago. On Sunday last, • sve mentioned the circumstance in our notices to Corres- pondents ; and in another part of our paper we alluded to the very person, Mr. Ross, who has been the most active manager in concocting the association— and the very house, GO, Portland- place, at which the meetings have been held. Four days alter, the Post informs us that " a Conservative Club is about to be formed," and other papers copy the innouneement as something new. Tor many days we have had the names of the members jn our possession ; but we trust that our columns are better occupied than with the mere appellations of a set of Ultra- Tories.* There are many other particulars which we shall state when we see occasion. The members of the club may be assured that we shall know their proceedings, just as well as they know them themselves. In fact, if the club were likely lo be truly a conservative elub, we would make a point of belonging to it, as we hold ourselves to be conservative par excellence ; and as we think it light, for the sake of our readers, to belong to every club in Loudon. But as we much fear that the designation is altogether a misnomer, we shall be contented with watching the Asso- ciation, aud cheeking its movements, in case they should happen lo be troublesome. Now, one word to the prime mover of this precious as- sociation :— a gentleman, by the way, whom we attack and oppose iu this capacity— but in no other whatsoever. There are certain persons who are " born" officious, and who are led by natural instinct, as well as fussy ambition, to seek the favour of their party, by making themselves useful in a small way. But why, Mr. Ross, should you take such an infinite deal of trouble? Your game is des- perate. If you expect by your efforts to retain for another year a seat in the House of Commons through the borough of St. Germain's, you are deplorably mistaken. You will do better to attend to the Marylebone Vestry ; or, if you are still on friendly terms with Mr. MURRAY, get up some other article iu the Quarterly Review, which, whether its principles are sound or erroneous, may at least do credit to your industry and research ! The foreign news of the week has been, wilh one excep- tion, destitute of interest. That exception, however, is an important one ; for no man can tell what may be the result The POPE lias protested against the intervention of the French Government, and has demanded the withdrawal of the troops. This circumstance will show how correct • we were when we contradicted the report that the occu- pation of Ancona was to be in consequence of an arrange- ment with the POPE. It was, indeed, astonishing to us at the time, that any Journal in this country should have attached credit to the statement of its having been agreed to hoist the Drapeau Tricolore in Italy in support of the political atrocities of the POPE ; but it was believed, and we take some credit to ourselves for having exclusively * Since writing the above, we perceive that the Times of yes- terday has thought it worth while to publish this list; we shall therefore give it insertion. revealed the truth. The Ancona expedition was under- taken wilh the twofold objret of convincing the Austrian Government that intervention was not to be the order of the day only on one side, and of gratifying the national pride in France, by stating, in the Chamber of Deputies, that the tri- eoloured flag was flying in Italy, as well as in Africa and Greece. As the occupation of a portion of the Papal States by the French cannot he made instrumental to the cause of tyranny — for the French Government would not dare, even if the inclination were not wanting, which it is, to hoist the na- tional standard in defence of the despotism of the POPE— it must have the very contrary effect, anil iufuse confidence into the minds of those who would substitute freedom for despotism, and establish the reign of liberal ideas in place of that of priestly fraud. The occupation of Ancona by the French cannot, therefore, prove other than beneficial to the cause of humanity at large, whatever effect it may have on the continental peace. This is a very embarrassing affair for the Court of Vienna, for it asserts the independence of France, and places Prince METTERNICH in a position from which, with all his diplomatic skill, lie will find it difficult to remove without disgrace. He had written to M. CASIMIR PERIER to say, that although Austria could not be pleased with the occupation of any portion of the Papal Stales by French troops, yet, as the Austrian Government dreaded the over- throw of the PERIER Ministry, lest it should lead to anar- chy, and the subsequent establishment of a Government hostile to general peace, he was willing not only to consent to such occupation, but even to passer outre rather than see PERIER overthrown. After this declaration there was nothing in the French expedition which was calculated to produce a rupture betweenAustriaand France, provided the POPE could be made to perceive the folly of resistance to their joint views. Austria has long watched and been disgusted with the conduct of the Papal Government, and has desired a change, hut circumstances prevented her from interfer- ing as she could have wished. The French intervention, therefore, although far from agreeable in a general point of view, could not be disagreeable as regarded the desire of Austria to ameliorate the condition of the Papal States; but Popes and Cardinals are not like other men; their ideas of superiority absolve them from the duty of acting like the rest of the world, and they are unwilling to sur- render the power of oppressing those w ho are under their controul. Little was it to be expected that an intervention in favour of an oppressed and insulted people would be approved of in a land " Where deeds of horror are performed by force, And mitred ruffians sin without remorse." The POPE having protested against the entry of the French, the Austrians will be compelled either to join the latter, in giving liberty to his subjects, or to make common cause with the POPE. The latter could not take place without a declaration of war: tho former is hardly possi- ble, in the present state of things; but still the subject is an awkward one, aud the sooner it is terminated the better for all. It is hardly worth while now to enquire into the claims to intervention which the Cabinets of France and Vienna have both set up. To us it appears that France had as great a right to enter Italy without invitation as Austria has with ; for what Sovereign has a right to invoke the as- sistance of another Monarch to maintain a despotism which is opposed to human rights? If France has invaded the pretended rights of the POPE, Austria lias invaded llie real rights of the people who inhabit the Papal States. In both cases the intervention may be wrong, but we who live in a free country ought not to hesitate to declare ourselves in favour of that principle which seems most in accordance with reason and right. tianity, be not preferable to the present state of ignorance of the Irish peasantry. Is it not better to squint than not to see at all! There are many opinions entertained by Mr. SADLER from which we conscientiously dissent; there is much in his style of oratory which we consider to be in bad taste; and we could wish that he had found his way into Par- liament by any other channel than as a nominee of the Duke of NEWCASTLE. But every man is sacred from any severe attack on our part, who delivers his opinions ho- nestly, temperately, and without personal bitterness, be those opinions what they may: and if such a man shall pursue any design of real utility and real philanthropy, with a calm but determined zeal, undeterred by opposition, and unprovoked by ridicule, no miserable motives of party feeling shall ever prevent us from giving our unbought tri- bute of support to bis object, and panegyric to himself. Mr. SADLER, then, we think and we say, is undertaking a noble as well as charitable work, in endeavouring to procure some positive enactment of the Legislature, which shall protect the poor children iu our large manufacturing towns from being employed in the factories, while they are yet very young, more than ten hours a day. Honour is also due to Sir ROBERT PEEL for having previously exerted himself in the same cause. Indeed, what reasonable doubt can there be about the matter? Ten hours a day ! Are not ten hours enough, as tbe Times asks, for a poor little thing, who is yet almost an infant. We dislike over- le- gislation, and much question the prudence, in general cases, of any interference ou the part of Government be- tween the employer and the employed ; and, therefore, we should be more than satisfied il the master manufacturers would carry the provisions of Mr. SADLER'S bill into effect by some private agreement and regulation of their own. Bnt if they cannot, or will not, take such a step, then the Legislature must. They who have seen, or known merely by report, the sicknesses engendered— the privations en- dured— tlie vicious habits caused— by over- working chil- dren in large factories;— they who have witnessed either ihe withering of mind and body— or the precocious deve- lopment, which ripens into depravity rather than into in- telligence— will want no farther argument to convince them, that Mr. SADLER'S aim is, indeed, one of those high and holy objects which every lover of his country and his kind must have deeply and fervently at heart. No such object shall ever pass unheeded, or, to the utmost of our power, unpromoted by us. Surely they who are unceas- ing advocates for the slaves in the West Indies, will not be deaf to the cry of the infant slaves at home, who, shut up in the unwholesome atmosphere of a heated and crowded room, have not even the sun and air of the wide heavens to cheer them. Surely the voice of humanity, which is raised in behalf of tbe oppressed and over- la- boured animal, will not be dumb in the cause of the op- pressed and over- laboured child I In making these remarks, we have no wish whatever to throw blame upon any particular persons: we merely de- precate the system; and would hope, that the spirit of commercial and manufacturing enterprise, which holds in one hand the wealth and importance of the British empire, may not fling from the other distress, demoralisation, and disea e. From the temper of mind exhibited generally by the people, and by the House of Commons on Tuesday night when the petitions were brought up, we have little doubt that Mr. SADLER will be successful in bis benevolent design. With the exception of the debate on Thursday night, little of interest has occurred during the week in the House of Lords. On Monday, Lord LONDONDERRY mentioned the charges which had been more than insinuated against Lord PON- SONBY by General VAN DER SUISSEN. Lord PONSONBY thinking that direct falsehood could only be met by a direct deuial, disdained to give any other answer than to throw himself upon his character for a sufficient refutation. It was the old Roman story, with the alteration of the names, Count VAN DER SUISSEN, affirmat— Lord PONSONBY, ne- gat. His LORDSHIP simply leaves the public to decide between his own negative and the affirmative of his tra- dueer. Tho public has already decided ; and even Lord LONDONDERRY is candid enough to echo the decision. On Tuesday, Lord BROUGHAM made the important an- nouncement of his own opinion iu favour of a radical al- teration of the law with respect to arrest for simple debt. The press of matter prevents us from entering upon the question, as it regards either the debtor or the creditor, Ihe interest of trade, or the general good of the community. We trust, however, that the instinctive feelings ofhumanity may be shown to coincide with a sound view of the matter upon prudential and commercial considerations. Ou Friday, Lord STRANGFORD moved for a committee " to inquire into the present distressed condition of the Bri- tish Glove Trade." Lord AUCKLAND opposed the motion which was lost by a majority of 8 in favour of Ministers. The numbers were very small, and little animation was displayed. In fact, there is something like a pause before the decisive struggle. The Opposition Peers arc perhaps anxious to conceal, rather than to put forth their strength and no accurate judgment of the relative force of parties caii be formed upon any late division iu the House of Lords. The Tories give out, in conversation, that their best policy at present is, to press close upon their adver saries, without going by them, but that they can pass them, d la Chifney, whenever they choose. The whole of Monday evening, iu the House of Com- mons, was lost to Reform, by the discussion which ensued upon the Ministerial system of education for Ireland. As we have already said so much upon this subject in our previous numbers, we will only beg our readers to remark the hypocrisy of those, who objecting to this measure, assign as a condition of their acquiescence, that the entire Bible be read in the schools; that is to say, they require a condition contrary to the doctrines of Catholi- cism to be agreed to by Catholic parents. We ask, how are the disputed texts to be expounded? oris the " un- mutilated" volume of the Holy Scriptures to be put into the hands of a child, without exposition? To those who object to the plan on account of fancied or minor defects, ( for the RODENS and GORDONS are as hopeless as they are Imischievous,) we earnestly entreat them to consider whe- ther any education, if founded on the morality of Chris- On Wednesday the House of Commons threw out Lord CHANDOS' proposition for the abatement of 4s. in the cwt. | on sugar— that is, to reduce the duty to 1/. per cwt.— and adopted the original suggestion of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, to continue the present duty for the six months ending in October. On Thursday accounts from the Lee- ward Islands arrived, detailing the reception of an Order in Council for regulating slave labour. In one of the Crown Colonies, the planters withheld all supplies of pro visions from the Government, and wrote to Martinique to frustrate the Governor's attempts to obtain them from thence. The islands which possess legislative assemblies are in an equal state of excitement. Here is another ease of perilous extremity, upon which his Majesty's Govern- ment and the Legislature are called upon to act. In faith, were my Lord GREY what his adversaries describe him," a daring pilot in extremity" when the waves run high, he would have been enough pleased with the danger on his hands now. But we who have faith in the moderation and honesty of his Majesty's present advisers to steer us forth from this " sea of peril," should not forget to con- sider that they have been called to take up the Govern- ment of the country when, to use a homely metaphor, it was too hot for their predecessors to hold. Much, how- ever, must be done, and speedily. But to return to the West India question. The motion of Lord CHANDOS was ill- timed, because inade- quate to the desired object, that of affording effectual relief to the suffering colonists. Lord ALTHOUP intimated ( at the same time that he rejected the amendment) his in- tention of introducing " some fiscal regulations," by which we understand, a relaxation of our monopoly in the trade of these colonies. This would be a most conciliatory and effectual measure of relief; but we do not at all abandon the hopes of an eventual and extensive reduction in the duties on colonial produce; and this reduction must ac- company any measures that may hereafter be proposed for the ultimate emancipation of the negroes. There is one article— coffee— which would bear a reduction of one- half the duty, and no decrease of revenue would result. The revenue from sugar alone amounts to five millions. It seems just that for some time, at least, the mother country should pay the penalty of having created and encouraged the system of slave cultivation in the colonies, by continu- ing to these colonies the monopoly of the home market, should their property in slaves be interfered with. Again, we repeat, all future enactments for the benefit of the slave should go hand in hand with a reduction of duty in favour of the planter. of the smaller benefices) one half the deficit. They also propose, that ilie arrears shall be collected by the King's authority, at the suit of the Attorney- General; but with no new process of coercion. They then declare the ne- cessity of substituting a tax upon land, or the exchange of portions of land for tithes throughout Ireland. The Irish members complained that this remedial measure only looked to the comparatively unimportant evil of the mode of collection;— that it held out no hopes of the unjust application of this mighty national revenue being altered or amended. They also complained of being called upon to legislate before the committee had completed their re- port : they urged that the collection of the arrears would continue to be impossible, because the people would con- tinue unsatisfied. For our own parts, we consider that the Government acted wisely in asking the authority of Parliament for an immediate transfer of the unpopular right of collection, from the clergyman to the tax- gatherer. No one will question tbe propriety of relieving the distressed ministry; and we consider the Government bound to attempt to arrest the spread of opposition to the law, by shewing an inclination to attend to this question of national grievance by this, their first step. We shall pursue this subject in our next number, when it lias passed the ordeal of the House of Commons in com- mittee. THE NEW OPPOSITION LEADER.

Club- house, Monday Night, March 5, 1832. Thursday was appointed for the motion of Mr. STANLEY, that the House should go into committee for the consider- ation of " resolutions" founded upon the Report of the Select Committee on Tithes. The Irish Members, who have hitherto supported Government, met the proposition in limine, and commenced a most animated attack upon the policy of the Government, supposed to be contained in the resolutions, and upon the mode of proceeding. It ended in the whole of the members present dividing against the thirty- one Irish champions ; and it was settled that the House should go into committee to discuss the resolutions to- morrow. Mr. STANLEY had, therefore, no opportunity of opening his case to the House; but the resolutions have been laid before the House of Lords. They empower the King to make payments frosi the Consoli- dated Fund to the Irish Clergy who have arrears of tithe due; such payments not to exceed ( excepting in the case Of the many and mighty subjects which now demand the attention of the legislature and the country, there is none, we believe, of more paramount importance, or more absorbing interest, than the position of the Established Church. We will begin with the bright side of the picture. And here we frankly affirm that in very many respects the Church, as a whole, never stood on such high ground as it stands at the present moment. In nojperiod of our history has the necessary preparation for holy orders been so ex- tensive and so laborious. Never have the college exami- nations been so strict and searching in matters, whether of general or of theological acquirement. We appeal to any member of either university at all acquainted with the subject. Again, never was the succeeding ordeal of or- dination so difficult to pass. Never before have been re- quired so many proofs of professional knowledge, and so many testimonials of moral character. We appeal to every Bishop, and every Bishop's chaplain in the kingdom. Still further: never have the clergy of the establishment, as a body, been so deserving as they now are, of popular affec- tion and respect. Never— at least, never in the memory of the present generation— have they been so attentive to their clerical duties; or, without perhaps the deep eccle- siastical erudition of times long past, more impressive and effective in their discourses from the pulpit. Never have exemplary conduct and continual residence in their re- spective parishes been so imperatively enjoined. We might add, that never was the church of England, if we look to its largest branch, milder and more tolerant in its doctrines; anil never were its members, generally, more liberal and more enlightened in their feelings and opinions. Some of our readers will perhaps start at this assertion, when they look at the calumnious imputations which have been thrown out against Dr. MALTBY and Dr. WHATELY— when they think how Ihe Bishops voted upon the Reform Bill— or remember that at Cambridge, at the last election, Lord PALMERSTON and Mr. CAVENDISH were obliged to give way to GOULBURN and Colonel PEEL, while in Oxford Sir ROBERT PEEL was preferred to CANNING, and Sir RO- BERT INGLIS to Sir ROBERT PEEL. Still they must recol- lect that we are not speaking of abstract qualities, but merely comparing past and present periods; and again, that we have rather the rising generation 0/ the clergy in March 11. THE TOWM, , view, than the old incumbents of distant parishes in the country. In proof of increasing liberality of sentiment and com- prehensiveness of views, we would adduce the facts, that the language of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, as well as the majority of the Bishops, is, in Parliament, uniformly conciliatory and mild; that they evince a sin- cere desire to lessen, if not extinguish, pluralities, and cut down any monstrous accumulation of ecclesiastical emolu- ments in the hands of a single person ; that they have themselves introduced plans of tithe composition, and tithe commutation, and lent a favourable ear to such as have been introduced by others ; that the Dean and Chap- ter of Durham have appropriated funds for the foundation - of a new College, or University, upon enlarged and useful principles : and that the Clergy have lately interested them- selves in many important sciences, as, for instance, politi- cal economy and geology ( for which Professorships have- even been endowed at the Universities,) which, of old, were absurdly opposed, as beini thought at variance either with the Mosaic account of the creation and progress of the earth, or, generally, with the historical and metaphysical arguments, on the basis of which the demonstration of Christianity is founded. So far, so good. But to this picture there is a terrible reverse 1 In spite of all which has been advanced, and which is unquestionably true, never, perhaps, has so deep and prevalent a dislike existed in the empire to the Church and its Ministers, in their collective character ; never has the Church, perhaps, had less hold upon the public mind and heart; and never has the vulgar outcry been more loud against it. The Church, in short, almost resembles the Roman Empire in its decline— at once weak within, as many would say, with a kind of plethoric unwieldiness; and from without, pressed by a host of varied enemies, all tierce with ancient hatred, and all now Hushed with a growing hope of decisive success. The Dissenter of every denomination attacks it, and his reasons are obvious. The Roman Catholic attacks it, and his motives arc natural and intelligible. The sceptic attacks it, and he only works in his vocation. The speculative framer of ideal constitutions attacks it, for he thinks that an ecclesiastical establish- ment connected with the state is an uuphilosophieal ano- maly in theory, and therefore certain to be mischievous in its practical effects ; yet if it be no wonder that the church should he attacked by ihe Dissenter— attacked by the Roman Catholic— attacked by the unbeliever— attacked by the speculative and metaphysical politician, it is a pain- ful wonder that it should be attacked by a party within itself. Such, however, is the case. The church is divided against itself; and the rent is one which widens daily. There are many who, while, with sanctimonious profes- sions, they talk of holding a shield over her weakness, are in reality inflicting stabs upon her very vitals. There are many who, while they share the emoluments in the church, would interpolate her Lilurgy with extemporane- ous prayers; and represent the majority of her Ministers as remiss in life, and latitudinarian in doctrine. Again, by the violent zeal ol their Missionaries— a zeal too often without either charity or knowledge— and their unseason- able attempts at proselytism, they arouse feelings of an- tipathy and dissension, of which the mischief is incalcu- lable, and in Ireland they have extinguished for ever that spirit of Christian harmony which used formerly to exist between the Protestant Rector and ihe Roman Catholic Priest. We have heard them insult both religions, while outwardly belonging to one ; nor shall we ever forget the scene, when Messrs. ARMSTRONG and DALTON excited the natural indignation of the Irish gentlemen at Exeter Hall, and thus stopped the stream of charily at its very source. We cheerfully believe, that in the Evangelical, or Low Church party, there are many most learned, and conscien- tious, and pious individuals; but we are not the less cer- tain, that the course which they are now collectively pur- suing has a direct tendency to destroy the repose and in- tegrity of the British empire. Therefore it is that we speak plainly ; yet in sorrow more than anger: and if we ever dircct the shafts of ridicule against them, let the dis- tinction always be observed, as we observe it, not merely between the cause of Ihe Christian religion, and the cause of any Ecclesiastical establishment, but also between the Established Church and the party in that Church, which has, in very truth, a leaning towards dissent. Hitherto, we have only regarded the position of the Church under one particular aspect: there are many other points of view which w ill demand our early attention. EXETER HALL. A new Song, set to Music by the Rev. Rammohun Roy, and sung at the last Irish Education meeting by the Lord Man- devil. We call upon all iibsfal- minded Masters of Arts at Oxford to support Mr. MILL in the election which will be decided in the course of next week for the new Sanscrit Professorship, founded by Colonel BODEN. For Oxford to choose a Cambridge man of unrivalled attainments and unquestioned character, will be an instance of generous wisdom, equally creditable to both Universities. The Saints are making a strong push against Dr. MILL, for no other reason, with which we are acquainted, than that he is an Orthodox High Churchman. TUNE—" Bachelor's Hall.'

We gave last week the only correct report which has appeared of Ihe heallh and sentiments of the LORD CHAN- CELLOR. VVe hardly anticipated that any more misrepre- sentations would be made. In society, however, whispers and insinuations are still circulated, which describe Lord BROUGHAM as labouring under a variety of distempers too numerous for mention, and some of them too ridiculous almost for allusion. Thus a report has been set afloat, among others of a similar kind, that his LORDSHIP is afflicted with Ihe same disease ( an affection of some par- ticular glands), which was fatal to a late Master of the Rolls, Sir THOMAS PLUMER; and the most extraordinary thing is, that this rumour, absurd as it may be thought, originated, unless we are strangely misinformed, with the lady of a late Chancellor, whose motives, assuredly, we shall make no attempt to divine. Her Ladyship can hardly expect that Lord BROUGHAM will be thus frightened out of his office; or that, like the nervous gentleman in the play, he will be induced to believe himself suffering with a painful malady, because his friends choose to tell him that he is so. or, rather, endeavour to create such a belief and impression in the world. while we are on the subject of misrepresentations, we may as well set tiie public right, once for all, upon the sub- ject of the new Bankruptcy Court. It has been said that the scheme is a failure— that the Court does not work well_ that the parties concerned are so dissatisfied with its jurisdiction iliat they will bring no matters before it which can be by possibility kept out. What will be thought of these assertions, when we explicitly state in answer, that the number of cases brought before the new Court since its institution, has been greater by one third than the number which, in former years, had been tried under the old system in ihe same period of time? What, again, in opposition to other insinuations which had been spread abroad, has been the effect of Lord BROUGHAM'S rapid disposal of the business in Chancery I— Why, that no less than eight hundred causes have been en- tered in the last year— a number, we need scarcely say, absolutely unprecedented. Ami if the childish objection should be started, that the result then has been to en- courage vexatious and ruinous litigation, we reply, thai they are entered because litigation is likely to be no longer ruinous or vexatious. And surely we might add, that il is a monstrous evil in any country ( as used to be the case in England) for persons to be prevented from prosecuting what they conceive to be their rights from a fear of the ex- penses and the delays of the court in which their rights are lo be tried. But to pass on to another topic. Lord BROUGHAM has not been safe from attack even on a point where, we ima- gined, his claims upon the gratitude of the country could admit of no doubt— we mean, his disposal of Church pa- tronage. Let us adduce one instance out of a hundred, and one which ( for we are no flatterers of Lord BROUGHAM) reflects perhaps higher honour upon the other party than upon himself. Without any personal acquaintance, the LORD CHANCELLOR offered to Mr. SEDGWICK the Wood- wardian Professor of Cambridge, a living worth 1,100/. per annum, merely upon the score of his general talents and acquirements. ( The late Lord Chancellor's— by the way, we may observe in a parenthesis— were given too often to men who had been on his committee in the Cam- bridge election). Well, what was Mr. SEDGWICK'S reply to the LORD CHANCELLOR'S offer?— He said, that he had pledged himself to promote the study of geology at Cam- bridge, and with his sincerest thanks to his Lordship, he really felt himself unable to accept the preferment. This was a noble sacrifice to science of nearly one thousand a- year. We may add, that up to the time at which we write, we may slate, upon the very highest authority, that Lord BROUGHAM'S health continues lo improve— that in a vci y few days his strength will be entirely recruited. THE ARCHITECTURE OF " THE TOWN." A correspondent writes to ask us why The Town is like the Pantheon at Rome? and then gives his own answer—" Because its columns are Corinthian."—" This hint," as Addison says, " has put us upon thinking" what is, and ought to be, the general architecture of The Town. We do not mean the brick- and- mortar improvements of the metropolis of Great Britain, but the polished and imperishable marble of the city which we are ourselves constructing. First, then, we said to ourselves, " Of what order must we build it ?" The choice was a matter of some difficulty; for Crockford and Co. have seized upon the Greek style, while seve- ral of our contemporaries have long appropriated the Gothic. Again -. to The Town any thing Saracenic, or Indian, or Chi- nese, or in the slightest degree barbarous, would be utterly un- suitable. Of necessity, therefore, we had recourse to the clas- sical orders, and determined to unite the several characteristics, the best properties, the truest beauties and excellencies of them all, with, certainly, far better effect than as they are seen blended in curious juxta- position upon the schools at Oxford. Here, then, will be found— assimilated— amalgamated— harmonized— the so- lidity of the Tuscan order— the strength of the Doric— the deli- cate neatness of the Ionic— the graceful elegance of the Corin- thian— the rich variety of the Composite. The next question was, " What shall we build ?" Rather should we say, what do we not build? Streets and highways, as it were, of description and argument, full of life, and spirit, and animation, and entertainment;— and, over rivers of eloquence and song, bridges, which make a way for statesmen and nations to pass safely over the dark waters of difficulty and strife;— and ( although Shakspeare asks, " Where is the palace whereunto foul things Sometimes intrude not?") fairy palaces of wit and imagination, where nothing mean or dirty can dare, or even hope, to penetrate. In The Town all is fair and splendid— exhibiting an easy system, an unpedantic re gularity— pursuing, in diversity of parts, the unity of design— " And, like the world, harmoniously confus'd." In The Town, therefore, all the capitals of the globe are com- bined and represented ; for the glory of The Town is to be spa- cious as London— magnificent as Constantinople— gay as Paris interesting as Venice— picturesque as Naples— durable as " eter- nal" Rome— social as Bath-— active as Liverpool— more enter- prising, and more rapidly increasing than New York, or Cincin natus, or the most flourishing colony in the western hemisphere We might pursue this subject; but we feel that, after all, our correspondent's joke may be the best part of the story. There is no truth in the report that Lord Ellenborough is GALLERY OF " ILLUSTRIOUS" LIVING CHARACTERS. No. IX. ( A SKETCH FKOM WHITE'S BAY WINOOW.)

TOWN TALK. A DISINTERESTED SHOWMAN.— The present Lord Stowell, when Sir William Scott, was notorious as a mighty sight- hunter, particularly if any thing like a zoological curiosity was in the case 1 Any monstrosity whatever, whether a lusus natures, or an ingenious imposition of human roguery— a cow with five legs, one picturesquely placed in the middle of her back— or a Cer- berus of a sheep, with two artificial heads stitched carefully to the neck— presented such an irresistible attraction to the learned and excellent Judge, that, at the rising of his court, he would hurry to the wonderful exhibition almost with the eagerness of a child. On one occasion a most extraordinary and marvellous boa constrictor was advertised to be seen somewhere in Holborn. Sir William, all impatience, was one of the first who arrived, with his shilling ready in his hand. The showman, however, who, without knowing his name, recognised his person at once, was quite ashamed to take his money. " Lord, Sir," said he, " it is only the old snake,- you have seen it a dozen times. I must not make you pay again ; but, if you like, you may go in and see it for nothing."—" Thank ye," answered Sir William, and in he walked. NOTHING IF NOT CRITICAL.— Gilford, in his first edition of the " Baviad," thus spoke of Colman, junior :— " And spurn George Colman's flimsy, trashy style." Some years afterwards going to see his comedy of John Bull, Gifford was so much pleased with it, he informed the author, that in the next edition of the " Baviad" he would make him the amende honorable. G. kept his word ; but chary of his powder and shot, merely substituted the following :— " And spurn Fred Reynold's flimsy, trashy style." A BRILLIANT MISNOMER.— There is a rose to which the name quatre saisons has been given by florists, from its blowing at all pe- riodsof the year. Some time ago, agentleman in an eastern county, wishing to stock a new flower garden, went to a nurseryman in the neighbourhood, and asked him what sorts he would recom- mend. " Why, Sir, to you, as a magistrate, I should recom- mend this," said the man, holding up a specimen.—" And why to me as a magistrate ?"—" Because, Sir, it is what we call the quarter sessions rose." The expected creation of Peers has been, among the Tories,- a subject of much ridicule, as well as apprehension. Some time ago, in a Club which has a large proportion of them, two Tory members were standing at a window, and saw a man run by in evident alarm.—" How fast the fellow runs I" said one of the gentlemen to the other ; " I wonder what he is afraid of ?"• " Oh," said the other, laughing, " I suppose he is afraid of being caught, and made a Peer ! " This might be very jocose, if it were not notorious, that so many applications for the honours of the Peerage have been made to Lord Grey, by men of the highest wealth and influence, that it would be impossible for him, under any circumstances, to pay attention to them all. Wherefore, rien n'est beau que le vrai," the witticism turns out to be somewhat deplorable. A few days after the attack upon Lord Londonderry's windows by the mob, Lord C observed to Sir G. W , that about to give up his bachelor freedom. We understand that he has only been refused twice since his divorce, he supposed Iloldernesse House would now be deserted by the family. " On the contrary," said the Baronet, " I should con- ceive that it would be fuller of people than ever, as his Lordship has converted it into a hoarding- house I" We have seen in an album the following trifle, attributed to Lord Byron ; but we do not pretend to vouch for its authen- ticity :— " Through hours by folly's freshness blest, I laugli'd at life as a good jest. A jest I feel it as before— Why is it I can laugh no more?" Pray, Mr. Abernethy," said a young lady, in a mincing voice, " which is the best way to cure a cold."—" White wine whey," said the bluff surgeon, ringing the bell; " only I must beg you to get out of my way." When Mr. Croker was abusing some particular estimates, du- ring the last session of Parliament, it was buzzed about the house, that " if he thought any estimate too high, it clearly was not his own estimate of himself." Lord Grenville has very bad nights; and some years back, when he found all other means to put himself to sleep unavail- ing, he used to say to his attendants, " Bring me the Report of the Bullion Committee." Since the beginning of this month, we understand that he has ordered for the same purpose Sir John Walsh's pamphlet, and the panegyrical review in Black- wood thereupon. The following couplet comes from a staunch enemy to the ac- cumulation of property in the hands of a few great capitalists :— Still heaping wealth, nor much with others sharing, Baring is bad, but Rothschild is past bearing ( Baring). As a city club is on the eve of formation, we subjoin a few examples of city wit, which may help some of our friends to ad- mission as members : —" At any rate," said Mr. Deputy Routh, " they have a good chairman to preside over the committee. Probably they chose him for his name."—" How is that ?" said Mr. Alderman Ven- ables.—" Because," said the Deputy, " he is . Master- man." | —" Is it true," said Alderman Waithman, " that Miss Mel- lish is worth a plum ?"—" I hardly know," said Sir Claudiui Hunter; " but that is the current story."— Surely they will never black- ball Sir Claudius after this. — At a second attempt, however, the same gentleman was not equally felicitous. Some Tory wags were making themselves merry about the march of intellect, and calling it the " slow march," and the " dead march," with many other sallies equally surprising. Sir Claudius, who, having been half asleep, had heard these eastern sages but imperfectly, at last very sagely ob- served, that he could understand the term for the present month: but could not conceive what was meant by the March of intel- lect all the year round. We are almost afraid that his own in- tellect is not yet either on its march or in its March; and will fade in its December before it comes to its May. — Another candidate, whose pronunciation of the English, tongue might, perhaps, be improved, then asked, " Why does a. man look best when he wears boots?— D'ye give it up ? Because; he is beautified" ( bootified).— But it is not fair to give all these city witticisms at once, of who knows what might happen to the Thames ? As Tom Moore advises, " We fly of! to the west." From that quarter we may report some original jeu- e d'esprit, delivered at the mansion of his- Royal Highness the Duke of G . For instance : In the course of conversation it was observed, that a cer- tain Tory Nobleman, whose name was omitted, was flickering; dimly in the socket, and like a candle almost burnt out. Some present supposed the allusion was to one Noble Lord, and some to another. " Bless me I" said the Duke, " 1 know! It must mean the Earl of Wick- low!"— The members of the household looked in admiration on each other. Again : it was mentioned that a military officer, of mors distinction than wealth, was in the habit,. when he gave a set dinner, of borrowing part of his plate from a naval friend. What, another United Service Club!" ssid the facetious Duke. -" Your Royal Highness will be the death of us," said one of the household, perhaps with too great familiarity. —" Can you guess this ?" asked the Duke. " Why is a fisher- man, who uses his rod and line fairly, like a square?"— Because all his angles are right angles."—" How deep in mathematics !" cried the household ; " no wonder his Royal Highness has been, elected Chancellor of the University of Cambridge."— But we must stop :— as even now the Coxwt Journal may be telling its readers, that " a great sensation has been excited, and that an inquiry has been set on foot as to the authors of the in- formation." Lord Alvanley, who is so happily hit off under the sobriquet of Lord Squib in the " Young Duke," makes a very good apo- logy for his epicureanism, when he remarked, that " he had a bad habit of living well." Joe Miller said, that attornies were to barristers what apothecaries are to physicians— only that they do not deal in simples. Luttrell will insist this is his own. The long talked of match between the liberal M. P. for Hert- ford and the hard- hearted daughter of a rich contractor is now off. The on dit is, that the lover fell asleep during dinner time while sitting next to his beloved, and in consequence of this, re- ceived notice to quit. This is but one among the many of lt orient pearls at random strung" which the above young lady has added to her chain of refusals. Lord M , who is not particularly celebrated for his libe- rality, said, " I never shall make a good private actor, for I can- not take my hands out of my pockets when I am on the stage."— " Nor when off it either," muttered George Colman. AGREEABLE NEWS FOR THE NEGROES.— In consequence of the reported inefficiency of Lord Belmore, the governorship of Jamaica has been offered to Lord Mulgrave, we believe without a chance of a refusal. Charles Phipps will take leave of Hyde- park and the Annuals to accompany his brother in the capacity of secretary ; so in a twelvemonth from this date we may expect a fashionable novel on black life from the Governor, and odes to sugar canes from the Secretary. " The Man of Ross" is celebrated for having feet in propor- tion to his bulbous form. On his late appearance at Court, ia short breeches, Croker wrote the following impromptu epitaph : " Here lies our Ross, though not his feet ; He was interred by halves— For they could find no winding sheet To cover his fat calves." In the debate on Irish Education on Tuesday, there were no less than seven copies of speeches which ought to have been de- livered found in the smoking room of the House. Considerable mirth was excited by a certain member for an Irish county claim- ing his speech. N. B. These speeches were, bona fide, the pro- perty of Irish members. It is curious to mark the different tracks of different men to notoriety. Cressett Pelham is notorious for never giving a frank, and " noodle" Kearsley for being deficient in nose. A certain captain of a certain foot regiment, who is knowir sometimes to tell a good story, relates that once with his regi- ment in Flanders, he overheard two soldiers thus address one another:—" I say, Pat, did you see that Dane running along the lines like bedeviled ?"—" Did I not see him? faith and I did, and know him too ; it was Dean ( Hib. Dane) Swift." A gentleman, who, on a recent occasion, figured with hia valet in a police report, has lately gone through the ceremony of being black- balled, at two principal clubs. We would recom- mend him to an institution, called the Candidates' Club, which, consists of those gentlemen who are expecting vacancies in other Clubs. We are sorry to see the Quarterly Review coming forward with: a puff preliminary, as it were, of Miss Fanny Kemble's tragedy of Francis the First. This is part of a bad system. It is dero- gatory to the character of the Quarterly Review, aad we are con- cerned for the character of English literature, whether it be Whig or whether it be Tory. It looks suspicious in Mr. Murray, who is the publisher both of the Review and the tragedy, and it will eventually, we fear, ( for over- puffing is sure to cause as violent a re- action on the other side) be as injurious to the literary career of Miss Kemble herself as it has already been mischievous to her theatrical reputation. There is one circumstance connected with this transaction which we have heard, and which our readers will think more creditable to the fair authoress :— she received 45< W. for her tragedy from Mr. Murray, and immediately upon the re- ceipt of the money lodged it in the hands of an army agent foR the purchase of a commission for her brother. * Tiff ® TOW*. March 11. ON CAPTAIN WARRINGTON'S LATE TRIAL AND SENTENCE. We are no soldiers, and our late perusal of Captain Warring-, ton's trial, and subsequent sentence, bas deprived us of that little military ardour nature may have originally bestowed. To one living under civil authority, it is surprising to see what slight omissions may subject his military contemporary to a Court Martial, and, perhaps, eventual ruin aud disgrace. We think • we could hardly instance a stronger example of this, than in the late case of Captain Warrington. A person, according to all accounts, with every quality which could dignify the character of the officer, or gentleman, for a charge, which, looking at it in the strongest light, amounts to misconception, is cast and con- demned to be cashiered ; hut, through the gracious considera- tion of the Court, is recommended to mercy, which recommen- dation allows him to receive his own purchase money back, but does not a whit remove the implied stigma on his military quali- fications. Whether or no the dragoon doctrines, which Sir C. XJ'Albiac so ably advocated in his reply, had any influence on the decision of the ' Court Martial, we cannot say ; but, in our civil judgment, it appears most probable, that to a set of military men pothing could be more calculated to work upon their feelings as soldiers, and mislead their opinions as judges, than the above- mentioned speech. We sincerely regret that such sentiments should haye been promulgated by an officer holding so high a name, and so responsible a situation as Sir C. D'Albiac; a speech pot only bad in law, but tending to throw a tinge of despotism pver the as yet untarnished character of the British soldier. A pelebrated writer has defined the soldier, as one ' who contracts to gupply Government with a certain portion of heroism, at the cheapest possible rate, the out- breakings of that heroism to be directed and swayed by the hand of the civil power. Sir Charles P'Albiac's speech is in keeping with this definition ; only that he wishes the above heroism to recognise no civil authority as its Superior. We will not point out to him his error as a lawyer ; it is self- evident; hut we will quote a passage from the History of the late French Revolution, as a pendant to his doctrine of soldiers acting independent of the civil power :— " It is proper to remark, that, as it appears from the trial of the Ministers, no peace officer, no civil force, accompanied the troops, that the usual proclamation, summoning mobs to dis- perse, similar to our riot act, was not read, and that the troops were at once committed in a murderous contest with the people, without any interference of the magistrate, or the observance of any of those formalities which should precede the employment of arms."—( Lardner's Cabinet Library)— Vol. I., p. 193. We leave the Inspecting- General of Cavalry to study the his- tory of military interference, as exemplified in this instance, trusting that the day is far distant, when such legislators may govern the helm. For Captain Warrington we feel the most un- feigned sympathy, considering that he has been made the victim of military precision, which, by way of example, would not scru- ple to sacrificc an innocent individual. We began by stating we were no soldiers ; we end by praying, may the system of military judicature never become a permanent evil in the institutions of Great Britain. And, we would ask, if on any future occasion ( which GOD forbid I) troops should be called on to act against a mob, what course ought the officer commanding to pursue, placed in the predicament - of being tried by a Court Martial, in case of his not acting without a magistrate, and subjected to a trial by civil jury if he does ? We leave this dilemma for statesmen like Sir C. D'Albiac to solve. Assuredly the late decision of the Bristol Court Martial has placed his Majesty's soldiers in anything but an enviable situation ! SPORTING. GRAND STEEPLE CHASE. The following has been forwarded to us by a Hertfordshire friend, expressly for the Town. One of the most interesting steeple chases ever witnessed in this country, took place on Thursday last in the neighbourhood of St. Alban's. The following is a correct account of the horses and riders :— Sir W. Geary's b. m. Arab, rode by the owner ; C. Neville, Esq., cli. g. Hotspur— Mr. W. Bean ; Mr. Cox's ch. g. Rough Robin— Hon. G. Berkeley's whipper- in ; Mr. Johnson's Leporello— Mr. Stubbs ; Mr. Thomas's b. m. Corin- thian Kate— Captain Becher ; Mr. Tuppin's b. h. Peacock— Mr. Weston ; H. Forbes, Esq. b. h. Zanga— owner ; Mr. Cluff's g. g. Redstart— J. B. Hall, Esq. ; Mr. Evans's g. h. Grimaldi— Mr. Mostyn; Mr. Orbell's b. h. Bloomfield— C. B. Codrington, Esq.; Mr. Elmore's b. g. Moonraker— Mr. Seffert; Captain Home's c. St. Lucifer— owner ; Mr. Thornhill's b. h. Creeper- Mr. Patrick; Mr. Carey's g. h. The Monk— owner; Mr. Adams's b. m. Lily— Mr. Wesley ; Mr. Comyn's b. h. Talis- man ; Mr. Solloway's m. Countess— owner : Mr. Lelly's b, m. Bounce— Mr. Parker ; Col, Charitie's Napoleon— Mr. The Atlas, we understand, has been carping at some of the intelligence originally communicated to the public through The Town. Now, we bear no ill will to that paper, and we are the mildest of human beings; but we must not be provoked. Has the Atlas ever heard the epi- gram written upon itself?— Tho' Atlas once, as ancient tales rehearse, On his broad shoulders bore the universe ; The weight of dullness would his sinews crack, Had he to bear his namesake on his back. We quote the subjoined lines from the Times of Mon- day last, as a clever specimen of that kind of satirical poetry which is best adapted for ( he columns of a newspaper— sharp and personal, in one sense, it is true; but, still, neither seriously offensive, nor carrying political warfare into the details of private character. We wish that ( he public press was favoured with more of such effusions:— " According to some learn'd opinions, The Irish once were Carthaginians; But, trusting to more late descriptions, I'd rather say they were Egyptians. My reason's this :— the Priests of Isis, When forth they march'd, in long array, Empioy'd, ' mong other grave devices, A Sacred Ass to lead the way;* And still the antiquarian traces ' Mong Irish Lords this pagan plan, For still, in all religious cases, They put Lord R— d—- n in the van. M." * To this practice the ancient adage alludes, " Asinus portans mysteria." THE LATE FIRES AT DUNSTABLE.— A correspondent has fa- voured us with some authentic particulars respecting the fires at Dunstable ; but we regret to say that, up to this time, it has been found impracticable to bring the guilt home to the sus- pected party. The unusual occurrence of five fires in one week, . — all, without doubt, effected by the same base incendiary— has caused the greatest sensation in the neighbourhood. The first of the fires alluded to broke out on the evening of tbe 21st Febru- ary, at Mr. Goselour's farm, situated within a few yards of Dun- stable church. Owing to the great exertions of several gentle, men and inhabitants, only one wheat stack was destroyed : but on the evening of the 28th February, the same daring incendiary ( as is supposed) again succeeded in effecting another fire on the ' same property, which completely destroyed the stacks, & c., and several barns, saved from destruction on the former occasion That active and intelligent gentleman, Mr. Barber Beaumont, has been down for the purpose of investigating the affair ; but without success at present. A reward of 500/. is offered for the discovery of the miscreant, or miscreants.— Mr. B. Beaumont states that Trains, which have not succeeded, are frequently • sent to the Insurance- office. At the end of a roll of touch- . paper a bulb of gunpowder ( if we may be allowed the expres sion) is attached. The cause of failure is generally owing to the clumsy addition of turpentine, & c., intended to render the effect of the touch- paper doubly sure.— We cannot help thinking that . if a Bow- street officer were sent for immediately on the breaking out of a fire, and a diligent search made in the house of the sus. teiw, Pectei1 l, arty ( as tllere generally is some one or other so suspected) therefiaterials > ™ uld be found which would lead to the desired dis- Crommelin, G. Osbaldeston, Esq. Umpire, The start took place at Nast Hyde Farm, Hatfield- road, about four miles from St. Alban's. The ground was marked out by flags, and the winning- post was at the back of Mr. Colman's stables, St. Alban's. Lucifer took the lead for the first three fields, followed by Mr. Stubbs on Leporello. Captain Becher third— severe running made for the first mile. Moonraker then took the lead, Red- start second, Corinthian Kate third. She fell at a tremendous jump out of a hollow lane, and ran nearly a field before re- mounted by the Captain. Creeper, who never had a chance, went on the wrong side of the flag, and pulled up. Bounce, jockied by Parker, ( who was lucky enough to be put on Moon- raker last year, when he won by nearly a mile) fell about this - time, and was soon told out, although backed as a favourite. Rough Robin, winner of the Hunter Stakes at Leicester, and from whom so much was expected, did manage to run about two miles, and was then pulled up. The Hon. G. Berkeley's whipper- in had been sent for by express to ride him. At this time the horses began to find their places, the field being generally much straggled, and here Mr. Neville's horse, Hotspur, well known in Leicestershire and Warwickshire, ceased to he a spec- tator of the race, in which, though without a rider, he had been quite a leading character for some time, having fallen and got rid of his bridle very early. His jockey, Mr. Bean, of the Edgeware- road, who has in his time disposed of so many, was himself disposed of by this ac- cident. Captain Forties's br. h. Zanga, brought over from Ireland as the best steeple racer in that country, trained at Boyce's, at Newmarket, and with no stain, either in blood or reputation, here said enough. Having from distress shivered a gate, he made a most adagio movement into a hollow lane, and appeared no more. About this time the Oxfords' horse, Grimaldi, began to shew for the race, going the pace with ease, and clearing his fences with the agility of our old friend in the pantomime. Mr. Wesley, on his Northamptonshire mare, Lily, and at this period going remarkably well, in facing a severe fence jumped against a tree, which actually cut the bridle in two, and caused him a tremendous somerset. He contrived, however, to find his way to St. Alban's, with a bit of rein and the bridoon, although he had no longer a chance in the race: and in this state, with the! mare's mouth full of blood and a hat like a pancake, beat at least three- fourths of the lot. This gentleman would have ridden in a silk cap, and probably have, lost his life, but for the advice of Philip Dauncey, Esq., who happened to be standing by during the weighing. Lucifer, no longer " the pride of the; morning," here made a mistake and fell, and his rider, not: anxious perhaps for further dealings with the devil, took so much time to remount that he showed no more. Mr. Codrington now- cliallcnged on Bloomfield, and took the lead of Moonraker, Capt. Becher, on the Maid of Corinth, looking out for disasters and close at his heels. In this form they proceeded, Mr. Mos- tyn still waiting and at ease on Grimaldi, till the mare was compelled to take her place behind the grey ; and in going down the last hill Grimaldi had a head and neck of Moonraker. The latter, however, had the best of the grey in the ascent, and finally won the race by a neck— Corinthian Kate a length or two behind them, owing her place to the perfect steadiness and inimitable horsemanship of her rider, she certainly having no business with either of the winners, and if Capt. Becher had been anywhere hut on her back, Kate might have had as good a chance at Corinth as she had at St. Alban's. Mr. Codrington on Bloomfield, hard held, and about a field behind these horses, found his way into a chalk- pit ; without however losing his seat he got out again, and fancies, as most losers do, that but for the pit, he might have changed places with Moonraker. He was, however, as much like winning as chalk is like cheese. Peacock and Leporello too had a taste of the pit; nobody, however, but a looker on, was the worse for the accident. We forgot to mention that Mr. Anderson, who on accoudt of his post- entry rode in his shirt, never bad a chance on his grey. Mr. Orbell received a severe fall and lacerated his face, but the accident was not of a serious nature. It is allowed that the race between the three horses above- mentioned ( no other having been placed) was, as far as a steeple- chase can be considered a race, one of the best contested ever seen ; and when we remember that they were picked horses, from the most sporting counties in England, we cannot hut allow that ft was a perfect treat to the amateurs of true sport. IMPORTANT MATCH TO COME OFF ON TUESDAY NEXT, IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD OF HARROW.— Moonraker, the winner of the above stakes, and Grimaldi, the second horse, are matched to run four miles across country for 500 guineas. At the time the match was made, Mr. Elmore backed his horse at 360 to 300 guineas ; which was taken by the owner of Grimaldi. Gri maldi is to be ridden by G. Osbaldeston, Esq.; and we hope that Moonraker will be intrusted to Captain Becher. Mr. Osbaldeston has a horse which he is willing to run against any in England, four miles across country, for a sum not less than three hundred guineas. UNIVERSITY AND CLERICAL INTELLIGENCE. OXFORD, MARCH 8.— In a congregation holden this day, the following gentlemen were nominated public examiners for the examination commencing in Easter Term :— In Uteris Humanioribus— The Rev.

D., Senior Fellow of that society, to the Rectory of Tburcaston, in the county of Leicester. On Tuesday last the Rev. Professor Musgrave, Fellow of Tri- nity College, was elected a Senior of that society. The congregation announced for Wednesday the 21st instant, at eleven o'clock, is postponed to Friday, the 23d, at the same hour. At a congregation on Wednesday last, the following degrees were conferred:— Bachelors in Divinity.— Rev. Thomas Brigstocke, Trinity Col- lege, Rector of Whitton Radnorsh, and Incumbent of St. Ka- tharine's, Milford Haven. Masters of Arts.— Rev. Henry Fillness, Queen's College ( comp.); Rev. Erskine Neale, Emmanuel College. Bachelors of Arts.— Charles S. Grey, Trinity College ; Ar- thur Vickers, Trinity College ; Frederick Heberden, St. John's College; Edward Thompson, Clare Hall ; Martin Roe, Sidney Sussex College. HIS MAJESTY'S RACING STUD. The horses in training in the Royal Stud will be sold at New- market Craven Meeting, it being his Majesty's intention to re- strict that department to breeding only. The Colonel, Water- loo, Fleur- de- Lis, brood mares, & c. will be retained for stock, which will be sold annually. The Royal gifts will be continued, and we are also informed that his Majesty has resolved on giving the hoof of a celebrated racer ( Eclipse, we have heard), to be run for at Ascot, as a kind of challenge prize, and to add to it 200 guineas ; those running for it to pay 100 guineas each. HUNTING APPOINTMENTS. His Majesty's Stag Hounds wdl be at Aylesbury ou Monday, March 12, for a week's hunting in the lower part of Bucking- hamshire. The West Kent Fox Hounds will meet on Monday, March 12, at Kennel; Wednesday, 14, at Well- hill; Friday, 17, at Horton- village— at ten. The Surrey Fox Hounds will meet on Monday, March 12, at Reigate- hill; Thursday, 15, at the Joliff's Arms, Mertsham; Saturday, 17, at the Geerge Inn, Oxstead— at half- past ten. The East Kent Fox Hounds will meet on Monday, March 12, at Sibton- gate ; Wednesday, 14, at Herne- common ; Friday, 1(>, at Shelwyn- wood— at ten. Mr. Codrington's Hounds will meet on Monday, March 12, We are glad to see the spread of liberal principles throughout the country. Even in Suffolk— about the most Tory county in all England, where a Whig or Independent Paper has never hitherto been able to maintain its ground— we understand that one is about to be started on Wednesday next under the denomi- nation of" the Bury and Suffolk Press" with good resources and every chance of complete success. If it strictly adheres to the Prospectus, which it has put forth, it may command the best wishes Of all who are sincere frieuds to the great cause of human improvement and gradual Reform. On Thursday his Majesty gave audiences to the Marquis Wel- lesley, the Duke of Devonshire, Viscount Palmerston, the Duke of Richmond, the Marquis of Clanricarde, Earl Grey, the Mar- quis of Lansdowne, Viscount Althorp, the Earl of Albemarle, Viscount Melbourne, Lord Hill, and Mr. Mayers, the Agent for the Island of Barbadoes. The King left town about half- past five o'clock, in his travelling carriage and four, escorted by a party of Light Horse, for Windsor. MARRIAGE IN HIGH LIFE.— On Thursday the marriage ce- remony was solemnized in Stratford- place, between Mr. Des Voeux, son of Sir Charles Des Voeux, to the Hon. Miss Law, daughter of Dowager Lady Ellenborough. An entertainment to a select party of friends was given on the occasion. It is generally circulated in the higher circles that Lord Francis Leveson Gower will shortly resume his private thea- tricals at Bridgewater House, on the same splendid scale which distinguished his Lordship's histrionic entertainments two or three seasons ago, when the fair hostess, the Noble Lord, and Mrs. Bradshaw, figured in the representations at the tasteful theatre which has been constructed in his Lordship's spacious mansion. ROYAL IRISH YACHT CLUB.— The Princess Victoria has; presented the Club with a handsome silver cup, to be sailed for at the regatta this year, in addition to a superb cup which the Duchess of Kent had previously given. The Commodore, the Marquis of Anglesey, has fixed the regatta to take place in Dublin Bay, on the 25th and following days. A conversation!; was held, on Wednesday evening, at the Lon- don Institution, which was attended, as usual, by a very numerous company. Dr. Birkbeck entertained them in the theatre by a most excellent lecture on Rail- roads and Steam- engines.— Amongst the introductions of the evening, was a newly- invented Map and Chart Table, by Mr. Deacon, of Furnival's- inn ; by means of which an almost unlimited number of Maps, Charts, and Prints, may be'viewed in rotation, thereby saving the ex- pen e and inconvenience attending the inspection of a large Map, & c., in the ordinary way. Mr. Maberly appeared on Friday in the Court of Bankruptcy, before Mr. Commissioner Fonblanque, and was examined. Further time was allowed to him ; the last examination was fixed for the 6t. li of April, and the first audit for the 4th of July. SUICIDE OF HENRY BOUVEKIE, Esa.— Tuesday an inquest was held, at Limmers' Hotel, Conduit- street, on the body of Henry James Bouverie, Esq., aged 30. Thomas Ramsay, ser- vant for two years to the deceased, said, that about nine on Mon- day morning his master appeared as usual; about eleven he left him dressing. Soon after the chambermaid heard an unusual noise in the room, and he went up stairs. On entering the cham- ber, the deceased, who had on all his clothes except his coat and waistcoat, was lying on the bed quite dead, with a deep gash across the throat, from which the blood was profusely flowing. It ap- peared that he had been unusually dejected for some time past, in consequence of the death of his mother. The Marquis of Queensberry said, that at the beginning of last month he ob- served a great depression in the spirits of the deceased ; and his appearance was such on Sunday last, that he ( the Marquis) re- marked to some one that he should not be surprised if the de- ceased committed some rash act. The Jury, on hearing this evidence, returned a verdict-— Temporary Derangement. MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT.-— A most distressing accident oc- curred at Cockermouth on Sunday afternoon last. The spacious Sunday School erected at that place was opened for the recep- tion of pupils on the forenoon of that day, and both the con- ductors of that establishment and the children present quitted it at the usual hour for Divine Service. They met again in the afternoon, and at the close of the teaching, the children, amount- ing to upwards of four hundred, were assembled in the upper room for the purpose of singing a hymn. On quitting the room, the weight of so many children pressing towards the door caused one of the beams which supported the floor to give way, by which a majority of the scholars were precipitated, with the falling floor and timbers, into the room below, carrying along with them the brick partition which separates the staircase from the lower apartment. Several of the children were buried among the ruins, two of whom were killed upon the spot, and many others se- riously injured.— Cumberland Pacquet. A bill has been introduced into the Legislature of Tennessee, to authorise females to obtain bills of divorce free of costs.— New York Advertiser. FAMILY JARS.— At Union Hall, on Friday, Willam Norton, an eating- house keeper, was charged with assaulting his wife. She said she had been his wife for fifteen years, and lately he had commenced illtreating her and entertaining fits of jealousy. The preceding day he smashed all the dishes in the kitchen, and snatched a hot shoulder of mutton which was roasting from the spit and banged her about the head with it. The defendant said he had good reason for his jealousy, and if he banged his wife with the shoulder she banged him with the leg, and so it was tit for tat.—- The Magistrate ordered him to find bail. George Casey, Michael Casey, John Burke, and John Brady, were executed at Corofin ( Clare) on Thursday, for the murder of Mr. Blood. Burke and Brady acknowledged the justice of their sentence.— Limerick Evening Post. THE ANTI- REFORMERS.

At the Lancaster Assizes on Monday last, James Ryan was found guilty of robbing and slaying Thomas Lilwood, an officer of the Manchester Manor Court, who had gone to levy an exe- cution for costs, taken out against him in a suit in that court. The deceased having been refused admittance, with the assistance of other officers, attempted to force his way into the house of the prisoner, who attacked them with a pitch fork, which entered the deceased's skull, and caused his death. The sentence was deferred. On Wednesday, at the Lancaster Assizes, William Andrew, a man of respectable appearance, was indicted for having on the 14th of August, killed his wife at Manchester. The deceased was in the habit of drinking ardent spirits to excess. The pri- soner quarrelled with her when she was intoxicated, and struck her. She then took up the poker, and said she would break his head. He took it from her, and hit her several times with his fist. She had been delivered only three weeks before of a child, and she died in consequence of the bruises. At Ennis, on Friday last week, four men, charged with the murder of Patrick Donellan, servant to Mr. Synge of Dysart, were found guilty, and sentenced for execution on Monday. This makes a total of nine capital convictions. The names of the convicted are John Casey, one of the family hanged on Mon- day for Mr. Blood's murder, Patrick Hartigan, Peter Donnelly, and Morty Quinlivan. On Sunday morning, M. Albert Berthier was taken from the prison of Saints Pelagie to the Place de Carrousel, where, in presence of M. Deamortiers, the Procureur du Roi, M. Poutier, an examining Magistrate, and M. Dumas, the King's Aid- de- Camp, and M. Buffet, who were witnesses of the escape of his Majesty from the wheels of M. Berthier's cabriolet, the precise spot on which it took place was ascertained and verified.

HUNTING STOPPED BY PEASANTS.— It appears that in several parts of England the peasants have determined to put a stop fo hunting, at least to the trespass of hounds, for they are said to have surrounded the cover on hunting days, and refused to let tbe fo x out— the tenant thus asserting his right to prevent trespass fro m being committed on the land he occupies. March 11. t i i ® t o war. HOUSE OF LORDS, Monday, March 5. Til e Marquis of LANSDOWNE presented two petitions from parishes in Downshire— one praying for a modification of the tithe system, and the other for its abolition. The noble marquis then stated, that it was his intention on Thursday next to submit a resolution confirmatory of the first report of the tithe committee. The Earl of SHREWSBURY presented several petitions from places in Ireland, relative to the tithe system. On the motion of Lord KENYON, the agricultural labourers' employment bill was committed. After several clauses had been agreed to, the chairman reported progress and obtained leave to sit again to- morrow. ENGLISH DIPLOMACY IN BELGIUM.— The Marquis of LONDONDERRY said that lie rose, in consequence of the notice he had given of his intention to ask some questions respect- ing certain circumstances which were freely spoken of in society, afid which bad been published ill tbe public newspapers, relative td Lord Ponsonhy, whilst British Minister in Belgium. The noble marquis then recapitulated the charges against Lord Ponsonby, contained in the letter of the Belgian General Van Der Smissen, and concluded by saying that if such acts, attributed to Lord Poti- sonby,. were correctly stated, such conduct had not been surpassed in the worst da^ s of Napoleon. He should feel most satisfied to find that Lord Ponsonby had been unjustly accused ; but if the charges were not denied, he should submit a motion to their Lord- ships on the subject.— Lord PONSONBY— I give to the state- ments made by the noble marquis the most distinct, direct, and positive contradiction. ( Hear, hear.) I will not enter into any explanation of my conduct before him. 1 do not recognize him as my judge, and I do not know what right he has to demand any ex- planation from me. ( Hear, InJar.) I stand upon my character before the world, and upon that I depend for the justification of the conduct which I pursued in Belgium. ( Hear, hear.) 1 scorn the accusation. Let the noble marquis bring forward proofs of the truth of his statements—( Hear, hear)— let him go to the unworthy sources from which he has received those scandalous and calum- nious libels—( Hear, hear)— let him call me before my peers in this- house, and submit a distinct motion on the subject. ( Hear, hear.) I repeat tliy denial of those libels. I will give no explana- tion. I stand upon my character. ( Hear, hear.)— The Marquis of LONDONDERRY begged to assure the noble lord, that no indi- vidual had heard his statement with greater satisfaction than him- self. He had always considered the noble lord to be a person of the highest honour; and lie felt some pride of having been the means of inducing the noble lord to proclaim to this country, to Belgium, and to Europe, that the scandalous and infamous allega- tions contained in the letter of Baron Van der Sniissen, and in other publications, were totally unfounded.— Earl GREY thought that after what had fallen from the noble lord ( Ponsonby) it would be unnecessary for him to say a word in answer to the accusations which had been charged against him ; but he must say, that the noble marquis might have been satisfied of their falsehood by merely perusing the papers which contained them. He really Was convinced that no other person but the noble marquis would have thought it necessary to call upon the noble lord for a formal contradiction of those scandalous accusations, which were totally and absolutely devoid of truth. PLURALITY OF BENEFICES BILL.— The Archbishop of CANTERBURY moved the second reading of this bill— Lord KING considered this bill to be tbe most unsatisfactory and dis- appointing, under all circumstances, which it was possible to bring forward. It was not a timely reform •, and though it might have done 50 years ago, it was not suited to the present times. The great abuse in the church was, that two rich benefices might be held by one person : and he would ask, did the bill attack that abuse ? The established church was no longer the religion of the majority of tbe people; and it could not alfotd to lose its cha- racter by a continuance of abuses. At the present moment the non- resident greatly exceeded in number tiie resident clergy. The number of the non- resident was 6,800, and of the resident 4,467. After a few words from Lord ELLENBOROUGH the motion was agreed to, and the house adjourned. TUESDAY, MARCH 6. The Marqnis of LANSDOWNE moved that there be laid be- fore tbe house a copy of the dispatch, dated the 23d cf June, 1831, which had been transmitted by the' Colonial Secretary to the dif- ferent Governments of the West India colonies, together with copies of the correspondence between Viscount Goderich and Earl Belmore, which ensued thereupon. Ordered. On the motion of Lord KEN VON, the agricultural labourers' employment bill was passed through a committee, and reported with several amendments. Ordered to be printed. MAIL- COACH TRAVELLING.— Lord DACRE presented a petition from the coach proprietors on the Holyhead line of road, complaining of the loss they were sustaining in consequence of the high fares charged by the Post office steamers from Holyhead to Howih, and praying that Such immoderate eharges might be ma- terially reduded.— The Duke of RICHMOND promised that he Wduldgive his best attention to the subject, observing that a me- rterial to the' same effect had been laid before the Lords of the Treasury, LAW OF DEBTOR AND CREDITOR.— The LORD CHANCELLOR fnoved an humble address to his Majesty re- questing that he would order that there be laid before the house the last report of the fcdmfaoh law commission. All who should read the re|> ort lie1 doubtl- d not would be satisfied with the sound rea- soning and sensible arguments which were there embodied in stfpport of this recommendation. At the same time it was pro- posed to amplify considerably the creditor's means of recovering his legal demands, and to deprive the fraudulent debtor of every means of withdrawing his property from the reach of those who had a just aud equitable claim upon it. Those defects and mani- fold inconsistencies which now deformed the law and hampered the creditor in his efforts for restitution would be gradually, tempe- rately, aud effectually remedied or removed, should the opinions of the commissioners be pilopted by the legislature. THURSDAY, MARCH 8. Petitions for a reform of the tithe system in Ireland— against the Irish national education systeili— and in favour of the factories' regulation bill, were presented. LORD ELDON'S OFFICIAL PATRONAGE.— The Earl of ELDON gave nutice, that on Monday next he would submit a statement to their lordships in answer to an attack which had ap- peared in the public prints as emanating from a member of the other House of Parliament, anil which represented him as having abused the patronage of the high office which he filled for 25 years in favour of members of his own family. Lord PLUNKET stated, in answer to a question of the Earl of Wicklow, that Captain Graham's ( theofficer who commanded in the Newtownbarry affair) name had been omitted by the Irish Go- vernment in the last list of magistrates, and that his ceasing to ex fccute the office of magistrate was not voluntary on his part. IRISH TITHES The Marquis of LANSDOWNE moved that the first report of the select committee of their lordships on the subject of tithes in Ireland, be read. The report was read by the clerk. The noble marquis proceeded to say, that the resolutions w liich he thought it his duty to submit to their lordships would, he begged it to be distinctly understood, be strictly founded on the report. He did not mean to trouble their lordships with a minute analysis of the report, further than calling their attention to its three prominent features— namely— 1st, the facts connected with the extensive resistance to the law in Ireland with respect to the col- lection of tithes; 2dly, the effects of that resistance upon the for- tunes and condition of the individuals most interested in the colter, tion of tithes; and 3dly, the general considerations arising fro these facts and their consequences, with a view to a legislative le niedy. With respect to the first of these divisions, it was, un- fortunately, a too easy task to satisfy the house of the fact that a very extensive and organized resistance to the payment of tithes had for a considerable time prevailed in Ireland— a resist- ance in some places assuming the character of open outrage and lawless combination— in others, of a more systematized association, and in either form extending over a large surface of that country. It was also an easy task to show that that resist- ance had placed the clergy in a must distressing situation— that some members of that body had been actually deprived of the means of subsistence— that many of them had endeavoured to enforce their rights, but, though supported by the powers of the government, had been wholly unsuccessful— that others had succeeded in degree in collecting their tithes, but even in degree only by having re- course to means which it was highly inexpedient that the ministers of a religion of peace should be forced to; while there w'ere others who, perhaps, were mo t of all entitled to their sympathies— who, fearful of compromising the sanctity of their profession, and of risk- ing their influence upon the people, had entirely refrained from co- ercive measures, and, as a consequence, bad no other means of ob- taining their rights but the justice and wisdom of the legislature. This being the state of tilings iu Ireland, it would not be necessary for him— particularly as the report and the evidence were now familiar to their lordships— to take up their time with citing cases to prove its existence; so that he would confine himself to calling the attention of the house to the evidence of one or two of the clergy who had failed in overcoming the resistance to the payment of tithes in Ireland, and of one or two of the magistrates who had unsuccessfully endeavoured to enforce the law, ail concurring in this— that the former could no longer obtain their tithes by pacific means, and that the latter cotild no longer hope to remedy the evil by means of force. ( Hear, hear.) He need only remind them of the evidence of the Rev. S. T. Roberts, the Rev. H. Cot- ton, and the Rev. II. Hamilton: all these gentlemen, and every other clergyman who had been examined, agreed that " a systema- tic opposition" to the payment of tithes prevails throughout Ire- land, which the existing law is wholly unable to overcome. ( Hear.) [ Here the noble marquis detailed the evidence of Colonel Sir Johtr Harvey, inspector- general of police for Leinster ; Mr. Fitzgerald, the resident police magistrate, and Mr. Green, resident magistrate of the county Tipperary, to prove the fact of ail extensive illegal com- bination against tithes in Ireland.]— The noble marquis flattered himself that he would have little trouble in inducing their lordships to adopt his recommendation, to administer relief to those respect able gentlemen, who, without any fault or misconduct of their own to answer for, were placed in a situation of great difficulty and dis- tress ; which relief, he was confident they would unite with him, was called for not only by consideration of expediency but of strict justice. If the House shouid, as he expected, go along with him in his proposition of relief to the clergy who had been deprived of the means of subsistence by the resistance to tithes in Ireland— and who had foregone other advantages for the sake of the duties of their sacred office— relief which should be afforded by the Govern- ment according to a scale, to be found in the Appendix to the Re- port, which allotted a large proportion to the poorer clergy who had no means of subsistence but their tithes, and vice versa, a smaller proportion to such clergymen as possessed other and larger emolu- ments. He would follow up that proposition by another, by which the Government would be enabled to accompany the relief thus afforded by them to the clergy by a » measure to enforce the authority of the law, and repay themselves for those advances which thev might feel it incumbent on them to make, in consequ- nce of the organized resistance to the payment of tithes which prevailed to so great an extent. But their lordships' committee did not think it fit- ting to rest here: on the contrary, they felt that in examining into the causes and circumstances of the opposition given which arose out of tbe nature of tithes, they could not overlook mat- ters aud causes of discontent which were connected with the State of Ireland in particular, and which were calculated to promote disturbances and engender broils which had not now for the first time disfigured the history of that country, and which, although they might have lain dormant for a time, still ever affoided a ready instrument to any one who should wish to agitate or disturb the country. Noble lords who recollected the nature of tithe property must admit, that however venerable its antiquity, and however ge neral its adoption in various states, it had ever been recognized as containing within itself tbe seeds of discontent, from its being con- sidered to press upon the springs of industry. There was not, he apprehended, any necessity for his contending on behalf of a pro- position so obvious as this— namely, that tithes were a tux upon industry. Tithe would thus be found to be a tax bearing not only on the landlord and the occupier, but upon the consumer, as tending to diminish tbe supply of food ; and in consequence of this, there was scarcely a country in the world in w hich this property had not undergone an essential modification. Far was it for him to approve' of the mode of getting rid of tithes adopted in some countries— namely, tbe principle of spoliation, and he mentioned the fact only to show that wherever tithe was in operation it had been felt as a grievance, which had in some countries led to its being put an end to by wholesale spoliation, while in others, by a mild and equitable arrangement, a substitute bad been found fur it. Thus stood the facts, and although there might be some counties in which, from long habit, tithes were freely paid, yet in Ireland what aggravated force had alt these inconveniences? The legisla- ture had been perpetually obliged to interfere, and endeavour to fiiid a remedy for this, which was so generally felt to be a griev- ance. He should not recur to acts passed both before and since the Union, by which in many cases powers beyond the law were obliged to be li^ d recourse to. He would only refer to the tithe composition act, and he could not but lament, for the sake of the peace of the country, that that let had not been compulsory, as it was his belief if that had been the case, that we should have made one step further in our progress towards that amelioration which was the object of the law which it was intended to introduce. He did not wish again to refer to the evidence, but could not help par- ticularly calling Ihe attention of the house to the evidence of the Archbishop of Dublin, a distinguished prelate, who could not have any prejudice against the established church, and who not only gives his own opinion, but that of many intelligent persons with whom he had intercourse. The emphatic words of the Arch- bishop of Dublin, as given in page 137 of the evidence, were— " But as for the continuance of the tithe system, it seems tome that it must be at the point of the bayonet— that it must be through a sort of Ghronic civil war. The ill feelings that have so long ex isted againstit have been embodied in so organized a combination, that I conceive there would be continually breakings- out of re- sistance which must be kept down by a continuance of very severe measures, such as the Government might indeed resolve to have re- course to for once, if necessary, but would be very unwilling to resort to habitually, so as to keep the country under military govern- ment. And the most intelligent persons, and the most experienced I have conversed with, seem to think that nothing else will per- manently secure the payment of tithes under the present system." He was aware that it would now be premature to call upon their lordships to suggest a plan for the other measure which was in con- templation ; but when they were called on for a measure arming the Government with extraordinary powers, he would ask them would it be fair or wise in them, looking to the aggravated evils of the present state of things, if they were convinced that a change would be beneficial to Ireland, to hesitate in consenting to such a change. They saw that the whole machinery of former proceed- ings was now become crazy— they saw that attornies could not be found to carry on law processes— nay, that the very tithe proctors could not now consent to go on. It was with a view to put an end to the heart burnings which were of daily occurrence, that he wished to make the clergy independent of the people, and give them land, or do as had been done in Scotland, where so beneficial a change had been effected in the reign of Charles the First. By this the industry of Ireland would be excited — and encouragement more wanted in Ireland than in any other | country in Europe ; and this could be effected well by an ex- j change of land for tithe, instead of that cumbrous and irritating system which, even although there were not any extortion by the clergy, and of this they were guiltless, still had such evils in itself. He would say, that if the legislature provided a remedy for - this evil, they would confer the greatest benefit that had been be- stowed upon the country. He had now done ; and iu taking the liberty of recommending these resolutions, even although the present was a time of great excitement, he trusted he might look to their lordships for that absence of party feeUngs which had • distinguished their decisions heretofore, on questions relating to the peace of Ireland. The noble marquis concluded by moving resolutions oomprising the substance of the report of the lords' comtnittee upon tithes in Ireland. The Earl of WICKLOW had no intention t6 oppose the proposition of the noble marquis ; for in the awful state to which Ireland was reduced, he saw no- other mode of relieving the distresses of the clergy than that proposed by the report. He also hoped that the modi* to be pursued by parliament for establishing the property of the' church would be put on a more sure and less obnoxious footing than it had hitherto been. As to converting tithes into rent- charge, he for one would most strenuously object to such proposition. The' constituting the landlords of Ireland tithe proctors to the chutch would be a measure fraught with the worst consequences, and he trusted that if such a measure as that should be brought forward, the landlords of Ireland would never submit to it. ( Hear, hear, hear.) The other proposition involved in the resolutions pro1- posed by the noble marquis— namely, the making of a commu- tation of tithes by exchanging them for land— did not appear to him to be by any means an impracticable measure ; and it was preferable to that which would throw the collection of the tithes upon the landlords of the country. ( Hear, hear.) The Bishop of LONDON said, that as one of the members of the committee from whom the report on this subject had ema- nated, he felt it his duty to- say a few words in reply to some ob- servations which had fallen from the noble earl who had just sat down. The noble earl said that that report was not so much the report of the committee as the report of his Majesty's Govern- ment. Now he ( the Bishop of London) begged leave to contra- dict that assertion. It was essentially the report of the Com- mittee. As one of the members of that committee he had put his name to it, and he cordially concurred in the whole of it. Lord ELLENBOROUGH was greatly surprised that the right rev. prelate had not alluded, in the course of his observations, to that part of the noble marquis's speech in which he had designa- ted tithes as a tax. All the general observations of the noble marquis, with regard to the tithe system, would go as much against the payment of tithes to the clergy in England,, as the payment of them to the clergy in Ireland. ( Hear, hear.) The state of things in Ireland which had called for the adoption of this ex- treme and never- before- adopted measure, namely, the collection of the tithes by the Government of the country, had arisen, he woidd maintain, during, the existence of the present adminis- tration. ( Cries of " hear, hear," and laughter from the minis- terial benches.) When at present nothing definite had been proposed either by the committee or by the Government, he thought that the House should pause before, it adopted at least one of the resolutions which would pledge it to do that which it might perhaps afterwards find it impracticable to effect.— The Marquis of LA. NSDOWNE, in explanation, denied that in any part of his address to their lordships he had designated tithes as a tax. He had, on the contrary, repeatedly spoken of them in the course of his speech as property ; and the noble lord, if he had attended to him with both ears, instead of one, would not have so completely misunderstood him.— Lord MELBOURNE wished to say a few words in consequence of the observations which had been made by the noble lord ( Ellenborough,) and which, though not of any force, should not go without an answer. The noble lord said that the Government should have taken earlier measures to put down the resistance to the payment of tithes in Ireland, and that knowing of the existence of that resistance, it should have come down to that House at a much earlier period with measures of this description.— Lord ELLENBOROUGH said, that what he meant was, that the government should have come down in April last to parlia- ment with measures to add to the powers of the existing law, with a view to put an end to the resistance to tithes, and he had added that he was sure if they had done so, they would not be now driven to the, extreme and unheard- of measure of making the Government the '" collector of the tithes.— Lord MEL- BOURNE would maintain that the seeds of that resistance to the payment of tithes in Ireland had been laid long before the present Government came into office. The Government was not justified in resorting for extraordinary powers to Parliament, until it saw it clearly and fully proved that the ordinary powers of the law were ineffectual in putting down the resistance which had taken place to' the payment of tithes.— The Duke of WEL- LINGTON agreed with the noble viscount in thinking that the house had derived some advantage from the appointment of the committee on the subject. The report of the committee, and the evidence which had been taken before it, had laid open to their lordships, not only the distress which had been suffered by the clergy in Ireland, and the misfortunes that had prevailed throughout a considerable part of that country, but the unani- mous opinion of the witnesses as to the causes of such a state of things. The present state of things in Ireland was attributable to the agitation excited there by persons'whom the noble lords opposite had allowed to continue that agitation ; and noble lords might rely upon it, that that state of things would still continue to exist, even after the adoption of such a measure as this, if that agitation was not put an end to. ( Hear, hear.) It was ab- solutely necessary, and especially incumbent on the Government, to adopt some system not only to vindicate the law, but to pre- vent breaches of it on all other occasions. He should support his Majesty's Government in all that part of the measure which went to enforce the just claims of the clergy ; but he thought the last resolution an objectionable one. Would it be fair or just to throw the tithes on the landlord for existing leases, and was it probable that the landlords would be incUned to recover them from the present occupiers of the land ? As to the other plan—- namely, the purchase of land to be exchanged for tithes— he could see no objection in it, if it met with the approbation of the right rev. prelates ; but in that case the Government must collect the tithes, or throw them on the landlord, and the thing viewed iu either way was involved ill considerable difficulty. He hoped that the house would not be called upon on the present occasion to vote the resolution which declared the extinction of tithes in Ireland. He would go as far as the resolutions before that went, but he would object to going further. He therefore trusted that they would not be called upon to vote that resolution. Lord TEYNHAM objected to that part of the plan which went to make the government the collectors of the tithes, and which he maintained might be attended by the dangerous consequence of involving it in a war with the people of Ireland. The Earl of ELDON said that when a measure was brought forward which went directly to the annihilation of church property, and when, they were not even told by those who brought such a measure forward what they would substitute for that property, he was not a little disappointed not to hear a single member of the right re- verend bench rise to defend the interests of the church now so vitally at stake, and to protest against a measure of such a des- cription as the present. He thanked his God, however, that he should not be amongst either the ecclesiastical or the lay sup- porters of this motion ; that he would not give his assent ( his opposition he saw would be useless) to a measure which went to deprive the ministers of the United church of England and Ire- land of that which constituted their entire support, and to which they had as much right as there existed to any lay property in any part of England. His long life had been thrown away in supporting the interests of the united church of this empire, if those to whom the interests of that church were intrusted did not come forward to protect them when a measure was proposed which extinguished the church property, unaccompanied by a plan for providing a substitute for it. He so entirely des- paired of support for the church of Ireland from that quarter from which it should be expected, and to whose support it was entitled, that lie begged to intimate to their lordships that the humble individual who now addresssed them would give them no further trouble on this subject. ( A laugh.) The Archbishop of CANTERBURY said that he had never failed to express his gratitude to the noble and learned lord for the services which he had rendered to the church ; but the man- ner in which the noble lord had defended the church that night conveyed an attack upon the prelates of that church, which he ( the Archbishop of Canterbury) must say was totally unfounded. He was sorry that the noble and learned lord, to whom the church establishment was under the greatest obligations, should have declared that he would not again offer his opinion or coun- sel on this subject. But stiU, however much he regretted that circumstance, he felt himself called upon to accede to tbe reso- lutions. The attacks made by the enemies of the church of Ireland had always be- in founded on the payment of tithes; and if they could place that church on a fair footing with the coun- try, and at the same tirite make a just provision for the clergy, he did think that a very great benefit would be conferred, both, on the country and cm the church of Ireland. While he made these observations he must be allowed to state that he would never consent to give up the property of the church. He should always assert and maintain his conviction, that the church had as much right to its property as any other body in the country had a right to theirs. After some observations from the Earl of Caledon ( who defended the nomination of the committee and its proceedings) the Earl of Aberdeen, and the Marquis of Lans- downe, the resolutions which embodied their lordships' report were agreed to, and the house adjourned. FRIDAY, MARCH 9. GLOVE TRADE.— Lord STRANGFORD rose, pursuant ta notice, to move for a select committee to inquire into the dis- tressed condition of the glove trade, with a view to providing a legislative remedy. His Lordship, going at some length into a statement of the distress under which the glove- manufacturers were suffering, concluded by moving for the committee.-— Lord AUCKLAND rose, with great reluctance, to oppose the motion of the Noble Lord, as it would be more agreeable to him ( Lord Auckland) to give relief to the distress of the manufacturers than, to endeavour to persuade their Lordships that the appointment of a committee upon the subject would be useless and unneces- sary. He would admit that distress did prevail in this trade, and there was no one more anxious to relieve it than himself. But he was, at the same time, bound to say, that the appointment of a committee of inquiry into matters of fast whioh were not and could not be disputed, and the result of which could nftt lead to any practical improvement, was much more likely to do evil than good. His Lordship went on to state that the injury supposed to be done to the home manufacturers by the importation of foreign gloves was by no means so great as had been asserted. In support of this statement his Lordship cited a parliamentary return, from which it appeared that since the prohibition on the importation of gloves was removed in 1825, the number imported had increased from 496,332 pairs in the first year, 1826, to 1,203,017 pairs in last year. But it also appears that the im- portation of skins used in the manufacture of gloves, though it was less in the first year after the removal of the prohibition of gloves, has since risen very greatly above the number in 1825r being 3,244,841 ; in 1831, 4,095,898,— an increase of nearly a million skins. His Lordship concluded by saying he must oppose the granting of the committee.— After some observations from, the Duke of Wellington, the Marquis of Clanricarde, Lord Ellenborough, and Earl Grey, the house divided— Content, 33 ; Not Content, 41; Majority against the system, 8.— Adjourned to Monday. CHOLERA MORBUS. The Cholera creeps on with its insidious, and, in many points, inexplicable course. We do not, however, mean lo say that there is any thing really alarming in its pro- gress; and we trust that Lord Goderich has not been so much frightened as Mr. Pennington reports.

ANECDOTE OF CAPTAIN Ross.— This celebrated adventurer, upon his return after the unsuccessful voyage to the Arctic regions, which he commenced in 1818, was in an extremely de- jected state of mind. Whilst in this condition, he happened to be dining with a friend in London, when a gentleman who sat next to him, whose name ought to be written in letters of gold, thus addressed him:—" Pray, Captain Ross, how should you like again to attempt the North- west passage?" Astonished at the question, and at the same time impressed with the hopelessness of such an event, Ross replied, " Alas, Sir, I should be too happy but there is no chance of that; I have no expectation of being so employed by the Government, even supposing it contemplated another expedition to the Polar regions." " Well, but, conti- nued his friend, I suppose there is no monopoly of the road to Baffin's Bay ; fit out a ship of your own." " Indeed, Sir," re- plied Ross, " I have as little hope of succeeding in that, as my fortune is by no means adequate to the expense." " Oh, is that all," hastily rejoined his generous patron, eager for an opportu- nity of extending his benevolence to a man whom misfortune seemed to have ground to the dust. " Is that all? Well, you sha'nt fail for want of funds; go and hire a vessel, or build one if you please, and send the bills to me ; only you must have a share iu it yourself, you know, or you will be but my servant, and I shall run away with the merit of your discoveries; so you. shall pay 10/. towards the outfit and be a proprietor, only take care you do not mention my name." Ross, overwhelmed with, this unexpected burst of liberality and kindness from a man who was almost a stranger to him, could scarcely believe what he heard, but being assured of the sincerity of the offer, he gladly accepted it, and immediately purchased a steam^- bgat, which, being equipped under his own direction, leftin the spring of 1829, with a crew consisting of,-< Japt& i l- o's*, com- mander, J. Ross, his nephew, an enterprising aiSd. scientific young officer, who had sailed two or thpee voyages with,, © S4> l » iu Parry; a surgeon; and, I believe, 16 seamen.

The King has had a long conference with Earl Grey, since our last, the result of which has been the assumption of a more positive tone by Ministerial partisans. It is now said that Earl Grey will not delay the creation of Peers until the Reform Bill shall be in committee, but that he vill create ten or twelve between the printing of the Bill and the second reading This would he a wise course, as it would convince the anti- reform Lords that he is serious in liis resolution to carry the measure without any modifica- tion which would affect its principles. The King recently observed to one of the anti- reform Peers, who was urging the representations of liis party, " All that you say may l e • very true ; but what guarantee do you oll'er that if the Bill is rejected, the country will remain at peace 1" The Noble Lord was silent, and withdrew. In connection with this subject we may state, that not many days ago, one of the Cabinet Ministers, in reply to a question as to Ihc public feeling at Birmingham and Manchester, received the fol- lowing statement from a gentleman of tbe greatest influ- ence in the first- named town : " Of Manchester I know little— but of Birmingham much ; and 1 tell your Lordship frankly, that if Peers are not created, you are lost. We have lost our controul of the people by delay, and if you shew any symptom of a desire for compromise with tlie Tories, ap explosion will occur, of which it is terrible even to think." We have been favoured with the following from Ancona " The appearance of the French, notwithstanding the order ofthe day " of their Commander, in which he declares that they come as friends of the Pope, has produced a great effect. The Drttpeau Tricolore lias revived feelings of in- dependence, and emissaries are busily at woik to fan the discontent against the Papal Government info such aflame as the Austrians would find it difficult to quench." We have been favoured with ( he perusal of a letter from Xiisbon, addressed to an official person of high rank here, in which he says, " Miguel is now quite aware that no reliance is to he placed upon his froops. He has appointed Spanish officers to several of the regiments, and has placed in every company several Spanish soldiers as spies. The jeign of the Usurper is drawing towards a close." The statement of the Morning Post about the expedi- tion of Don Pedro, in which it is represented as composed of rotten ships and discontented crews, is abominably false. There are letters in town from several ofthe officers, who speak in terms of great enthusiasm and of high admiration of the Admiral Sartorius, who has been basely calumniated l> y the Post. The ships are in fine condition, and the crews in high spirits, fully confident of success. The latest German papers arrived contain nothing worth quoting. The French papers of Thursday have reached us, but contain no news. The French fuuds on Thursdaj evening were steady. 5 per Cents 96 35 ex dividend. 3 per Cents 68 30 ditto. CITY, YESTERDAY EVENINO. We understand that the French Minister for Foreign Affairs has replied to the protest of Cardinal Bernetti, in respectful, but very positive terms. He insists upon the right of occupation, as claimed by the French in the affair of Ancona, and declares, that it is sanctioned by the usages of Nations. At the same time, however, he disclaims all hostile views. In another communication fo the Papal Go- vernment, General Sehastiani enters, at length, into the Jiistory of the discontentof the Pope's subjects, and earnestly recommends concession to their just demands. HOUSE OF COMMONS— YESTERDAY. The Speaker took the Chair a few minutes after one o'clock. Lord ALTHORP moved the order ofthe day for the committee < m the reform bill. The speaker having left the chair, the house resolved itself into the committee. Schedule H being under discussion, Lord ALTHORP moved an amendment to the effect, that a person parting with a portion of his property might still retain his qualification, the remaining property being sufficient for that purpose. The most advisable course to effect this was thought to be to enable the individual to enter any part of his freehold property in the register, and then his disposing of any other por- tion of it, would make no difference ; he Would of course enter a part whieh he did not intend to dispose of. The amendment was agreed to. The schedule H was gone through and agreed to. Lord ALTHORP said it was intended to receive the report immediately after the committee had gone through the Bill, and that the report should be taken into consideration on Wednesday next. Mr. CROKER wished to know whether any amendment of Importance was to be moved on the report. Lord ALTHORP, we understood, said not. It was then understood that whatever debate which might ensue was to be taken on the report on Wednesday next. Lord ALTHORP reverted to the 81st clause, and agreed to Omit it. The question was put, and the clause negatived. The 56th clause, for the remuneration to barristers, was then agreed to without discussion. The 57th clause was agreed to without observation. Lord ALTHORP moved several amendments to clause 68 the principal of which was to provide certain regulations at elec tions, in case a dissolution of Parliament should take place be fore the boundary bill passed into a law. After a few observations from Sir CHARLES WETHERELL, clause 68 was agreed to. Clause 82 was then read, and agreed to. Schedule L was then added to the bill. The house then resumed amidst cries of " Hear, hear." Mr. BARING brought up the report, which was ordered to be printed, and taken into consideration on Wednesday next. The LORD ADVOCATE moved for leave to bring in a hill to amend the cholera act for Scotland, which was agreed to. The house then adjourned at a quarter to three o'clock. COMMISSION OF LUNACY. A Commission was held, on Friday, at the Swan Tavern, at Stockwell, before the Commissioners, H. Whitmarsh, J. Blunt, and F. Murray, Esqrs., to inquire into the state of mind of Captain Anthony Abdy, of the Royal Navy. By the evidence it appeared that, in the year 1821, Captain Jtbdy was brought over to this country from Naples, owing to « ie representations of our Consul at that place, as to his state or mind ; since that time he has been under the care of Doctor Burrowes. The witnesses stated that the unfortunate gentleman was continually apprehensive that persons were set about him • o accuse him of crimes ; that Sir Richard Birnie always lived in the house, in a loft up stairs, to watch him to find that he • was guilty ; and that dirt was always mixed with his food. The Commissioners and Jury, after hearing the evidence, proceeded to the house of Doctor Burrowes, for the purpose of satisfying themselves as to the present state of the lunatic's mind; and, on their return, the lury returned an unanimous •• erdict of lunacy, without lucid intervals.— It was stated that • CNnta'n A. had lately become entitled to considerable property, under the will of an uncle ; owing to which it was necessary to put him under the protection of the Chancellor.

An application of a novel character has been made to the as- signees of a dashing city bankrupt. It is, that his race- horses should be kept and run for the benefit of the estate, taking up all their previous engagements, by which the estate ( accordingto report) is to reap a golden harvest. A CLINCHER.— An American Paper says, this is the method of catching tigers in India :— A man carries a board, on which a human figure is painted ; as soon as he arrives at the den, he knocks behind the board with a hammer ; the noise rouses the tiger, when he flies in a direct line at the board, and grasps it; and the man behind clinches his claws into the wood, and so secures him. At Hamburg there is an annual festival, in which troops of children parade the streets, carrying green garlands, ornamented with cherries, to commemorate a remarkable event which oc- curred in 1432. When the Hussites menaced the city with im- mediate destruction, one of the citizens proposed that all the children from seven to fourteen years of age should be clad in mourning, and sent as supplicants to the enemy. Procopius Nasus, the Hussite chief, was so touched with the spectacle, that he received the young supplicants, regaled them with cherries and other fruit, and promised to spare the city. The children returned crowned with leaves, holding cherries, and crying-— " Victory." DUTY OFF CANDLES.

The mate's wife received a letter from her husband, who stales, that, " when at Riga, lie caught the infection, then raging at its highest; ships lying on all sides losing daily part of their crew;" but observes, that '* by my ( the writer, Mr. Gardner, who is part owner of the Halcyon) plentifully supplying the vessel, at Sunderland, before sailing, with the Universal Medicines of the British College of Health, be resorted to the means, in strong doses, whieh soon had tbe desired effect of removing the complaint, and bringing him to a perfect state of health, and also kept them all clear of Ihe infec- tion afterwards." Surely this ou ght to induce all Commanders of vessels to take them to sea every voyage, not only as a certain pre- ventive to all diseases, but a sure investment of trade, tbe Medi- cine being now in high request in all parts of the Baltic. I expect to have more particulars from the Captain in a few days. There have very few ships arrived from Riga without loss of part of their crew. 1 am, Gentlemen, your humble Servant, Bishop Wearniouth, 6th July, 1831. MICHAEL GARDNER, CURE OF A WHOLE FAMILY IN INFLAMED LIVER; EPILEPTIC FI1S AND INFLAMMATIONS IN THE CLIFST. TO Mr. Shephard, SIR, — Could any thing that I can say add to the credit of Mr. Morison'sUniversal Medicine, I should most willingly doit, but I shall give you a plain statement of the good I and my family have experienced from tbe use of it, and if you think it worthy of pub- licity, you are at liberty to make what use of it you think proper. ForyearsI have suffered from violent pains in my right side, caused by an inflammation on the liver. In vain were means tried to alle- viate it, it grew w orse and worse, till such was the pain I had in my breast, shoulders, nay I may say, my whole body, tbat my life was almost a burthen to me ; I was rccoiuniended to try tbe Pills, and by taking them regularly for twelve weeks I may say that I am a new man. My wife, who has suffered for many years, from a com- plication of disorders, lias been very much relieved, and in full hopes of a perfect cure. For the last twenty- two years she has been subject to fiis, and has had what is called the best advice to no use, but by laking ihe Pills she has not had any for the last twenty weeks, so 1 conclude she is cured of them. Three of my children have been cured of inflammation in the breast, by taking them five or six times. These, Sir, call for my warmest gratitude to Al- mighty God for his blessing on the means, and to you, Sir, for your kind attention. I am, Sir, yours, most affectionately, Brunswick- pl.
