In niidiiion [Indian] we havea [have] telegraphic communication, via the the latter port, containing news from New York to the oi from San Francisco, California, to the 15th wf May, had been received at New York by the Crescent City. This steamer had about 250,000 dollars in gold dust, all in private hands. Another destructive fire tock place at San Francisco on the morning of May 4, reducing nearly one-third of the city to ashes, and con- [consuming] suming [summing] property to the amount of 5,000,000 dollars. The fire was supposed to be the work of an incendiary. Gold was still found in abundance. Two large masses of gold, one weighing 23 Ib. 2 oz., the other 101b.

Pinckney [Pink] Smith, of Mississippi; ex-sovernor [ex-governor] Henderson, Mr. Q'Sullivan, and ten other of the Cuban invaders. The authorities declared that they should be tried by the laws of maritime nations, and, if foun [found] ilty, [ult] visited with just punishment. on Pas pag [page] bendy we learn that the island of Hayti [Hat] was in a state of perfect tranquility. [tranquillity] Business was reduced to an extreme point of depression, and ad- [advice] vices from Guadaloupe [Guadalupe] report that the insurrection among the had been completely quelled. In the Senate on the 24th Mr. Abbot Lawrence's ap- [appointment] poiutment [Ointment] as Minister to England was confirmed. The debates in Congress had not resulted in the accomplish- [accomplishment] ment [men] of any of the slavery measures which have been before the House for such a length of time. ; ComsercisL.-The [Commences.-The] transactions in the commercial world since our last issue have been without impor- [import- importance] tance. [lance] The tendency of the stock-market has been downward, and the limited operations afford hardly movement enough for quotations. Money on short call, and even for 69 or 90 days, continues to press on the market at 34 to 4 per cent. on the better class of stocks. On stocks in fair repute 44 to 5 per cent. is paid. In the cotton market supplies were offered freely, the sales ranging from one-half to five-eights of a cent advance. BURNING OF A STEAM-BOAT.-AWFUL DES- [DESTRUCTION] TRUCTION [REDUCTION] OF LIFE. The American mail brings a full account of the dread- [dreadful] fal [al] accident which we briefly mentionel [mentioned] in last week'ssummary-the [week'summary-the] dostruction [destruction] of the steamer Griffith, in Lake Erie, on the 17th of June. Dr. William Maron- [Manor- Monarchy] chy, [ch] of Wachita, [Wait] Louisiana, in the following letter describes the heart-rending catastrophe. The steamer Griffith was about three miles from shore when the fire was discovered. She was immediately headed for the Jand, [And] and ran until she grounded on a bar, when about iwenty [went] rods from the shore, between which and the shore there was deep water. The scene of the disaster was about twenty miles from Cleveland, nearly off Chagrin - Cleveland, Ohio, State, June 17. About seven o'clock on Sunday evening, I goton [Gordon] board the Griffith, at Erie. There were on board a great number of deck or steerage passengers, emigrants, said to be 256. Sn the cabin there were about 40 or 45 of these, perhaps about twelve were ladies. The crew, so the clerk told me, cousisted [consisted] of about thirty persons. This morning the boat took fire about the chimneys or, as I was told at the time, she was on fire in the pi; I wasasleep, [was asleep] but was awoke by the rushing of the hands overhead on the hurricane deck. A gentleman who slept in the berth under me, jumped up, and said there was something wrong. I told him no, that we must be near Cleveland, and the noise was owing to the men preparing to land. My friend ran out on the guard and instantly returned, telling me 'the boat was on fire.' 1 get out pretty rapidly, pulied [plied] on my pants and took a smail [mail] valise I had in my hand, with the expectation of getting into some of the boats; indeed at the time we were so near land I had but very little apprehension of danger. I don't suppose at this time we were over a mile from land, perhaps not so much. i saw the mate on the starboard guard throwing the lead, and directing the pilot how to hold her. The mate looked so perfectly cool I thought we must be pretty safe. The engine was still working, and we appeared to be nearing the shore rapidiy. [rapidly] I asked him what was to be done he told me nothing. The engine then stopped, but as the boat had a good deal of way on ler, [Lee] she continued to ap- [approach] proach [preach] tue shore. I looked about me for an instant and tried iv make up my mind what was best to be done. I deteriaiaed [detailed] to get out on the bow or stein alonzside [insist] of the ; I did so, and held on by the irons and chains about that part. By this time a good many had, impru- [impure- imprudent] dentiy [dent] as I thought, jumped overboard. I kept my eye on the rijie [ridge] as the water broke on the stem; I saw she was losing 1avtion [action] eutirely, [entirely] and all hopes of her striking before the faacs [facts] swallowed all up was now gone. Ly this time there was 4 number of people overboard. As for the scene ev beard it would be idle for me to attempt to convey any idea uf [of] it. The danger was so imminent, so overwhelming, thai [that] mauy, [may] T think, were fairly stupified [stupid] with terror. We'l, i now, with the view of letting myself into the water as easily a5 possible, got dowa [down] to the lower deck, still keeping ou the outside of the steamer, direztly [directly] under the bowsprit. 1 remain d there for some time, perhaps a minute or more, st 1 vainly hoping she would strike. The water around the bows was now a mass of human beings -men, women, and children, hopelessly struzgling [struggling] for life. The koat [oat] was moving, but barely movinz [moving] towards land. in the multitude wildly struggling in the water all around, I did not sce [se] how even an expert swimmer could escape, and thea [the] people were dashing overboard in every direction. i now saw that I could not retain my position much longer, the fiames [frames] were rushing furward [forward] at a fearful rate, in a few seconds, perhaps, that terrified multitude, now densely erowded [crowded] on deck and inside of the bows, would be driven over me, and probably carry me with them to the bottom. 4 observed the water immediately under ize preity [pretty] clear, whose who a few seconds before struggled there having rnostly [costly] sunk; a few had swam off. I scized [seized] the favourable and dropped over. I went under, but found no bettum; [better] I swam a little way before rising, probably not more than six or seven yards; I then made a few strokes as rapidly as possible, so as to get clear of all others. I was apprehensive some one wouid [would] lay hold of me, in which ease I knew that with was over. F ortunately [fortunately] I got of clear. The lake was alive on ail sides with men swim- [swimming] ming [min] -some swam well and strongly, and were soon safe ; raany, [ran] however, sunk. I did my best, but evervthine [everything] iailed [sailed] me; let my feet down in hopes I micht [might] touch the bottoia, [bottom] but could not. The effurt [effort] of geing [being] to the sur- [Sir- surface] face and striking out again exhausted m2 very much. was penuting [pending] terribly; legs and arms would work no fonger; [longer] ail I could do was to a little with my hands. ft was with the greatest difficulty that I reached the beach then but a few rods distant. I got out and lay for some time on the sand, so completely exhausted that it was with the utmost difficulty I coull [could] breathe. At this time some six or seven persons had reached the beach. Musi [Music] vf those who jumped over befure [before] the boat stopped unless expert swimmers, must have been cither [either] drowned or killel [killed] by passing under the wheel. Many must have yerished [perished] in this way. 'To every man who had either a wife ar child with him, there was hardly any chance of escape. AL such were irrevocabiy [irrevocably] doomed. The immense mass of Slecrave [Telegraph] passengers, in this position when I went over must have perished pretty much They looked se utterly helpless, that for them there was evidently no Aepe [AP] whatever. Those who could swiin, [swain] ualess [unless] perfectly had almost as little chance of escape as those who ould old] not. The immense number of people in the water endered [rendered] it almost impossible for any one to ect [act] clear, After ihe [the] boat stopped the time was so short, not inore [ignore] than two or three minutes, that but few could get cl ging [going] and drowning mass. car of the strug- [struck- strength] account says The lake was so smooth oud Gear, that we could see bodies as ther [the] lay upon the bottom and so closely hed [he] they jumved [jumped] in unon [Union] cach [each] other, thas [has] when, in one instance, one body was hooked and raised, eight others followed, hold'ns fast to cach [each] ather.

Tho con- [consequence] Sequcace [Sequence] was, that the good swimmcrs [swimming] were carried own aud [and] drowned by those who could not swia. [sway] By far ihe [the] saddest sight was the fwacral [fiscal] of the trench Ona [On] hillock, on the high bank overlookine [overlooking] the scene of death, where the night before so many strusaled [trusted] ih Vain egamst [against] their fate, was opened a trench 30 feet jong, [song] 6 wide, and 8 deep. In this had been laid. in promiscuous order, man, woman, child; husband, wife, and deughter [daughter] the father and son, mother and infant laycr [Laycock] upon layer, until within four fect [fact] of the surface. What a horrid work To sce [se] human beines [Baines] arraneod [arranged] for compactness, the rough pile and larger Lodies [Ladies] level- [levelled] led up with children and lesser bodies, go that this vast yrave [grave] should present an even surface to the brush and hoards which were laid over their faces, aud [and] ou which the earth which was dug out of the pit was thrown hack. When we ascended the bank, we found two or three hundred people around the brink of thi; [the] mound taking a last look and performing the last sad rites. to the victims below. Although there was no procession no bell, no coffined hearse or funeral array, the sceue [see] was solemn and impressing. cers [Ceres] were FRANCE. ATTENTT [ATTENTION] TO Assasstyate [Assistant] Prestpext [Prospect] Lovis [Louis] Napo- [Nap- Napoleon] LEON.-A [A] young fellow of seventeen was arrested on Priday [Friday] afternoon, in Paris, who avowed the design of assastinating [assistant] the President. He was prowling about she Elysée [Else] at the time, and his wild look and pacings [facings] fro had already drawn the attention of the guards. About two o'clock a carriage containing Colicuel [Colonel] Vandrez [Wanderers] and some other persons, issuing from the gate, this youth was observed to make a sudden dart iowards [towards] the vehicle, while he thrust his hand into fast as if in search of some arms; but having was not himself that the person he sought mai [ma] he retired, and allowed the carriage to ra now ap man who had observed this suspicious secare [secure] his the youth to question him and was colla [collar] red the fee resistance was made before he ior [or] the of ki, that he came there Havi [Have] purpose of killing the President of the Republic. wing made this Pp ithout [without] the eli avowal with perfect calmness, and be dy ta ae rs. the a. himself to was - police, in hin [in] ae and a Cherubini, [Cherub] No. 3. He added that he had long meditated the assassination of the President, and had with this in- [intention] tention [mention] taken the pistol of a companion, without the latter's knowledge, and loaded it on Thursday evening, at the shop of M. Lefaucheux, [Leviticus] armourer, Rue de la Bourse. He had no accomplice, nor had ever revealed to any one his criminal desi [dis] On being questioned as to the motives of his attempt, he said that dissipa- [disappear- dissipation] tion [ion] and misfortune had impelled him to it. The idea haunted him in his sleep, but destiny seemed to protect the President having failed in discovering his intends victim in either of the two iages [ages] which be Be seen coming out of the Elysée, [Else] he had made up aa that Providence would not permit him to ata [at] he determined to make a clear breast of the oughta [ought] which pursued him.

His parents, who have three younger children, enjoy an excellent character. habits were, notwithstanding, wild and de- [debauched] bauched. [beached] He had been imprisoned for, two months for having, on the 21st January last, pursued quiet pas- [passengers] sengers [singers] through the passage Jouffroy, [Jeffrey] Boulevard Mont- [Montmartre] martre, [mare] with a loaded double-barrelled pistol. On Saturday morning he was examined, but his answers were such as throw doubts upon his soundness of mind. PROROGATION OF THE AsSEMBLY.-The [Assembly.-The] chiefs of the conservative party desire a prorogation of three months from the 15th of August. The legitimists [legitimatise] are opposed to so long a vacation, from apprehension of the ambi- [ami- ambition] tion [ion] of the executive power. GOVERNMENT OF ALGIERS.-The assembly, on Thurs- [Thursday] day evening, rejected an amendment for endowing Algeria with civil institutions. The opposition journals lament this vote, because there can be no system of colonisation, as they think has been proved by expe- [exe- experience] rience, [reins] under military regime. A Camp asout [about] Parts.- [Parts] The Presse [Press] states that it is the intention of the government to establish a camp in the neighbourhood of Paris, of which the command is to be given to General Baraguay [Paraguay] d'Hilliers. [d'Villiers] Others say 'o Changarnier. [Changing] In the Assembly, on Monday, in the course of the de- [debate] bate on the law of the press, M. Rouher, [Roger] minister of justice, designated the revolution of February as a dis- [disastrous] astrous [disastrous] catastrophe, whereupon M. Emile de Girardin [Guardian] called upon M. Dupin, [Turpin] the president, to call the minister to order, a demand with which M. Dupin [Turpin] refused to comply whereupon he was asked how he would have acted had any one in the days of Louis Philippe spoken of the revolution of July as a catastrophe The Presi- [Press- President] dent became enraged, the Assembly followed his ex- [example] ample, and the debate was adjourned amidst a scene of indescribable confusion. In the evening a mecting [meeting] of the Members of the Mountain was held at which M. Emile de Girardin [Guardian] proposed that they should resign en masse, a proposition which, although seconded by M. Michel de Bourges, [Bourses] was rejected. It as ultimately de- [determined] termined [terminated] to draw up a protest against the language used by the Minister, and deposit it on the tribune. On re- [reassembling] assembling the question of urgency was discussed. M. Emile de Girardin [Guardian] demanded to speak with reference to the rules of the house, and maintained that a special report was necessary to establish a case of urgency. M. de St. Priest, observed that the report was explicit enough upon this point. The Assembly inclining to this opinion the incident dropped. M. Mathieu (de la Dréme) [Dream] attacked with vehemence the reactionary march of the government, which seemed to wish to substitute sword-rule for regular and constitutional administration. He wa; stzongly [strongly] oppes2d [opposed] to allowing urgency for the bill. M. Rouher, [Roger] minister of justice, replied briefly to the arguments of M. Mathieu, and maintained that the violent speech of the honourable member was the best sisted [sister] upon the importance of the question, and on the weight of the interests engaged; and argued hence that the law should be debated with all the guarantees re- [required] quired [cured] by the constitution. He denied that the bill wore the character of urgency, since the committee had been four months, since the 10th of March, in getting up its report. M. Prosper de Chasseloup [Chisel] Laubat, [Laureate] the reporter, spoke next in favour of urgency. M. Emile de Girardin [Guardian] having mounted the tribune after him, there was a general cry from the benches of the Right for the close of the preliminary debate. The result of the ballot on the question of urgency gave 370 votes for, and 251 against. Urgency was in consequence declared forthe [forth] bill. The Paris journals observe that the apathy of the general populace, as to the fate of the measure, is most remarkable. The bill conceding a creiit [credit] of 50,000fr. [50,fr] to the Minis- [Minister] ter [te] of Agriculture and Commerce for the expense relative to the great London exhibition of 1851, was adopted by 652 votes against 18. Several representatives of the Centre affirmed on Saturday that the President of the Republic had given his cousin, the citizen Prince de Canino, [Canon] ex-president of the Roman Constituent Assembly, the authorisation to reside in France. It is added that the ex-Roman citizen iatends [intends] to come forward as a candidate for the represen- [represent- representation] tation [station] of the department of the Nord, [Lord] in the room of M. Walicn, [Walking] resigned. In the National Assembly, on Tuesday, the Minister of Justice, amidst repeated insulting interruptions from the Mountain, opposed the amendment of M. Monta- [Month- Mentality] lembert. [Lambert] The amendment was rejected, and the house adjourned at six o'clock. The Monitewr [Monitor] publishes a decree of the President of the Republic, dismissing 36 legal functionaries in the departments, and appointing others in their place. General Boyer, the former President of the Republic of Hayti, [Hat] died in Paris on Tuesday. A private of the 24th Regiment of the Line was sentenced to death by court-martial on Tuesday, for having struck his superior officer. Twenty-three of the operatives employed in the iron- [ironworks] works at Creuzot, [Crest] and who were ringleaders in the strike there, some weeks since, have been sentenced to various terms of imprisonment and to be deprived of their electoral rights. The district is at present per- [perfectly] fecily [fiercely] tranquil. Tne [Te] Harvest In France.- [France] In the provinces of Vieune, [Vine] the Centre, Burgundy, Franche [France] Comte, and Alsace, the wheat crops are excellent, and beans, pota- [pots- potatoes] toes, &c. promise to be abundant. The hay is of excel- [excellent] lent quality, and the rye, respecting which fears had been entertained, is, generally speaking, in a good state. Several vineyards suifered [suffered] from the frost in March, but on the whole the complaints made are exaggerated; and in Medoc, [Medic] the Yonne, [Anyone] Leone et Loire, and the Jura, hopes are entertained of an abundant and excellent harvest. GREECE. By advices [advice] from Athens, under date of June 25, the Wanderer states that King Otho, [Tho] in following the ex- [example] ample of the Sultan, has commenced a tour, and has set out for the Cyclades. His reception is said not to have been particularly cordial, for the people were depressed by their lengthened sufferings. The budget, which amounts to 22,000,000 drachmas, has only a reserve of 8,000,000 to depend upon. This tremendous deficit is attributed not only to the insufficiency of the resources, but primarily to the avarice of the officials-Hamburgh [officials-Hamburg] Courant, [Count] July 5. TURKEY. Tar Ixsurr ction [Exposure action] rv Buicarra.-Advices [Bulgaria.-Advices] from Sem- [Se- Smiling] lin [in] to the 23th and 27th June lead to the belief that the Turkish arms have not been so successful as was originally stated. The insurgents are said to be col- [collected] lected [elected] in great force in Serbia, and to be still in arms in the district of Belgradiecza. [Belgrade] Forcign [Foreign] influence is said to be very active in promoting the insurrection. IRELAND. Mr. Surra O'Briex.-The [O'Brier.-The] grand juries of the county and city of Limerick have unanimously adopted me- [memorials] morials [memorial] for presentation to the Home Secretary, pray- [praying] ing that the commuted sentence passed on Mr. Smith O'Brien might be carried out with as much mitigation as his safe custody woul [would] admit. -Sir David Roche ob- [objected] jected [ejected] to the wording of the resolution as not being sufficiently strong; but at the suggestion of the fore- [foreman] man, who urged the necessity of unanimity, Sir David withdrew his objection, end the memorial passed nem. [men] on. Sritrz [Spirit] of THE Potato Crops.-The Cork Examiner seys [sets] A correspondent upon whom we can fully rely states, from his persoual [personal] observation, that the potato disease has re-appeared extensively in Kerry. Sumilar [Similar] accounts reach us occasionally from other quarters, but they are almost invariably by the journals in which they are published and it is generally found, it is said, that a closer examination shows the symptoms of decay not to be those of the fatal blight of late years. Disxer [Disorder] to THE Lorp [Lord] Mayor or Dusiix-The [Six-The] friends and admirers of the Lord Mayor feasted his lordship on Tuesday evening in the round room of the Rotunda, by way of commemorating his victory in the celebrated 'case of Wauchob [Watch] against Reynolds. Among the toasts of the night was the Repeal of the Legislative Union, being its first appearance in public for several seasons. SALE oF Excumperep [Extempore] Estates.-Several important sales took place in the Rotunda, on Tuesday, and at- [attracted] tracted [traced] a large concourse of persons. The speculation of the day was the Ballydonelon [Baldwin] property, situated in the best part of the county of Galway, and as a great portion of the land was of the very best quality in the west of Ireland, a brisk competition was naturally ex- [expected] pected. [expected] The estate was set up in three lots only, the first of which, comprising the house and demesne, and yielding an annual rental of 742 28. 3d, subject to small sums for quit and tithe rent charges, was pur- [our- purchased] chased in trust for 14,100. The second lot, producing a yearly rent of 186 4s. 7d., with the usual deductions, realized [realised] 3,000. The third lot, yielding a well-paid profit rent of 307 13s. 9d., was bought by a gentleman named Power for 4,850. A small property in the King's county, producing an annual rent of 96 10s.10d. [1st.d] was sold to a Mr. Jennings for- [for] 1,920. ,920] -An- [Estate] estate in the county of Cork, the property of Mr. Walter Atkin, was set up in two lots, which realized [realised] the sums respec- [respect- respectively] tively [lively] of 250 and 1,350. The Latham estates, in the county of Tipperary, the sale of which was adjourned 3 proof that urgency was necessary. M. Jules Favre in- on a former occasion, ne the ich [inch] were 9 gross producing O80. [O] The last sale was of the estate of Mr. Willism [William] Hyde, situated,in the county of Cork. The property was put up in four different lots, but no purchasers ap- [appearing] pearing, [paring] it was put up in one lot, and it was sold to Mr. Augustus M'Mahon, the petitioner, for the sum of 6,500., who lent 10,000. on the property, and there is at present due to him, including interest, 13,000. The sales of the day amounted to 36,560. Harvest Prospects.-The subjoined gratifying state- [statement] ment [men] appears in the Cork Examiner. It completely refutes the report of an extensive failure of the potato crop in Kerry - A gentleman connected with this office has passed through a considerable district of Kerry, on to Limerick, and his account of the crops, especially the potato, is most cheering. His words are-' I am glad to say that the rumoured potato blight is a complete failure. I never saw anything more cheering han [an] the appearance of the crops all along the line from lee to Limerick, the potato espe- [ese- especially] cially, [call] though the quantity of them afforded ample scope for variety in their appearance. A Ca poquin [Quin] corres- [cores- correspondent] pondent [pendent] writes- I have not seen a single blighted stalk this year. He admits that some few plants have been destroyed by harsh winds or have only reached a stunted growth owing to bad seed but he distinctly asserts that there is no appearance of the rot or disease of the three or four last years. A Boughal [Bugle] co mdent [dent] writes- There is no appearance here of the potato blight, although this was the first place where the potato blight distinctly ap- [pared] red on former occasions. We have excellent accounts of the potato from Douglas, Carrigaline, [Caroline] Passage, and the various potato-growing districts in the neighbourhood of this city, The writer passed through more than twenty blooming fields yesterday, and could not perceive the slightest trace of taint or disease. New PRESBYTERIAN CoLLEGE.-It [College.-It] has been determined to establish a Presbyterian College in Derry, in connec- [connect- connection] tion [ion] with the General Assembly of Ulster, for which a lady named Magee has bequeathed 20,000. The Lon- [Londonderry] donderry [Londonderry] Journal states that the Irish Society of London are to grant ten or twelve acres of land for the site of the college. THE MURDER OF Mr. MAULEVERER.-It is stated that the Attorney-General will go down specially to the en- [ensuing] suing assizes of Armagh for the purpose of prosecuting, on the part of the Crown, the parties implicated in the assassination of Mr. Mauleverer. REPRESENTATION OF Mayo.-Mr. Butt, Q.C., has actually taken the field as a candidate on Protectionit [Protection] principles. The learned gentleman was daily expected in Mayo for the purpose of soliciting in person the suffrages of the electors. , STIPENDIARY Macistrates.-The [Magistrates.-The] Lord-Lieutenant has directed the under-named resident magistrates to proceed on temporary duty to the. following counties, under the provisions of the act 6th William IV., c. 13, viz., Mr. Charles H. Tuckey, [Turkey] Mr. Gerald Fitzgerald, Mr. Bartholomew Warburton, and Mr. Charles Hunt, to the county of Down; Mr. Edward E. Hill to the county of Armagh and Mr. John Baker Graves to the county of trim. MURDER IN CLARE.-Two persons, named Patrick Howie and Bridget Keogh, have been sentenced to death at the Clare assizes for the murder of their master, Mr. Arthur O'Donnell. The crime was committed partly for the sake of plunder, and partly to gratify the jealous feelings of the female prisoner. Rospinc [Respond] a GRAVEYARD.-A woman was arrested by the police in Limerick on Saturday, in the act of selling one ewt. [et] of human bones, wli h [wil h] se kalremoved [removed] from the burial ground of Killalae, [Killed] outside Clare-street. The miscreant had also a quantity of shrouding and caps worn by the dead. SuDDENLY [Suddenly] Ricu.-An [Rice.-An] extraordinary fortune has hap- [happened] pened [opened] to a private of No. 3 company of the 39th regi- [reg- regiment] ment, [men] now stationed at Athlone. By the death of an uncle, in Cuba, he has been put in possession of a for- [fortune] tune of 50,000, and two estates in the island. His name is Marryat. He is only twenty years of age. CONSTABULARY FORCE IN IRELAND.-According to a return just published, the total number of officers and men in the constabulary force in Ireland on the Ist [Its] of January, 1850, was 12,758, and the number of horses employed in the service 353. The total expense of the force in 1849 was 563,697, of which 523,771 is charged on the consoli- [collision- consolidated] dated fund, and 39,926 borne by counties, cities, and towns. The total increase of the force in the county of Cork since the passing of the act 9 and 10 Victoria is 319, - THe [The] Woo. Leacve.-If [Leave.-If] the crusade against cotton should not prove successful it certainly will not fail from lack of zeal on the part of its apostles. The Times says that Mr. Ferrand, like a new Father Mathew, is administering his pledge to thousands whilst the Mar- [Marquis] quis [quin] of Downshire [Down shire] must be contemplating a new order of the Golden Fleece. In the Town Hall, of Reading, last Saturday, was one of the great modem Wool Gatherings, when both gentlemen spoke and left no mistake as to their meaning. The Marquis in the course of his speech said I did not come here this day to do things by halves; no, I came here to speak out, and to call things by their proper names (loud cheering). And I now declare that I wish this agitation to be considered as a war a on the part of the farmers against the Manchester cotton manufacturers (vociferous cheering). Now, mark my words-I will stand by them-and if there be a penalty attached to them, on my head let it fall. I recommend you and all Englishmen to abstain from dealing in a single ounce of their blood stained cotton goods (loud cheers). Mr. Ferrand was happily characteristic. He said to his audience And here, in the presence of God, I de- [declare] clare [care] that there is no man who wears a cotton shirt woven out of slave grown cotton who does not wear one that is steeped in the tcars [cars] and dyed in the blood of his fellow creatures. A few years ago all England united to put down slavery in the West Indies and at what cost it was done we all well know. And call for a similar demonstration to oppose the system of slavery in America. But where are those canting, whining hy- [hypocrites] pocrites, [pyrites] the Quakers-(cheers and laughter)-they who branded the West India slave owners with being mon- [monsters] sters [steps] in human shape for keeping their fellow-men in bondage (Cheers).

MipLanD [Midland] Raitway.-On [Railway.-On] Wednesday a meeting of the proprietors of guaranteed and unguaranteed [guaranteed] stock in this company was held at Liverpool to take into consi- [cons- consideration] deration [duration] the proposition for the conversion of the 501. shares, which it is intended to submit to the special general meeting to be held at Derby on the 19th inst. Mr. J. B. Brancker, [Banker] was called to the chair. The chair- [chairman] -man, in opening the proceedings, condemned in severe terms the proposal of the directors with regard to the holders, which he said was unjust towards the holders of other descriptions of stock. He could tell the directors that he would oppose their proposal if he carried it to the House of Lords. He thought that a scheme more dangerous to railway property was never propounded by any body of directors, for he was con- [convinced] vinced [evinced] it would make railway property of as little value as Pennsylvanian bonds. Such, he observed, was the present condition of the company that even at the pre- [present] sent time, with money so cheap, the Midland Company was not able to borrow money at less than 44 per cent., and if something was not done to alter the prospects of the company the time would come when they would not be able to borrow it at anything like that rate. He intended to go to the meeting, and if he stood alone, he would oppose the directors' proposition. (Applause.) Mr, Willis said, the proposal might be beneficial to the holders of 502. shares, but it would be injurious to holders of all other descriptions of stock. A few plain facts would show them how. There were 77,323 shares at 501. each, which represented a capital of 3,866,150 ; reduced to 331. 6s. 8d. per share, would only amount to 2,577,7481., leaving a balance of 1,288,407, to constitute a perpetual preference charge on the company ab 44 per cent. amounting to 58,0002. per annum. In lieu of which the 50 shareholders proposed to forego one year's interest at 5 per cent., on the amounting to 158,8872.; but as they would be entitled to one year's dividend, which, according to their own showing, would improve the dividend on the stock, it was not too much to presume that the dividend for 1851 would be at the rate of 2 per cent., which would reduce the saving to 77,3331. for one year. For this paltry saving they proposed to saddle the company for ever with a 43 per cent. preference stock amounting to 1,288,407 The present annual charge on the company's preference being 228,394 perannum. [geranium] He concluded by moving that this meeting pledges itself to oppose by every means in its power the proposition of the directors. Mr. James seconded the motion, which was carried unani- [Union- unanimously] mously. [Mosley] A vote of thanks having been passed to the chairman the meeting seperated. [separated] CHEATING THE Poor.-At a meeting of the board of guardians of the Portsea Union (Hants), [Hats] on Wednesday week, the subject of the bread delivered to the poor was made the subject of discussion, in consequence of a as to its being under weight. [C] It appeared that the bread was supplied by four different contrac- [contract- contractors] tors, amounting to 1,490 loaves per week, and on being weighed by the authorities, it was found that out of 160 loaves supplied by one contractor, only eight were of full weight some being froni [front] 5 to 12 ounces short. Of the whole quantity of 1,490 loaves, there was an average deficiency of 2 ounces on each loaf. The result of this' is, for the the relieving officer exposure has been that the relieving oc oto [to] be future, to weigh the bread on receiving it, held responsible for its being full weight. - AnoTHeEr [Another] Important CurE [Cure] BY HotLoway s [Holloway s] OINTMENT AND Pris [Paris] oF a Wound IN THE Malcom, [Malcolm] wife of the lighthouse-keeper, at the entrance of the, river Tees, near Redcar, had been a sufferer for upwards of ten years with a severe wound in -the leg, which, during the last four 'years of that' period, was Bo bad 'that it made her quite incapable 'of' walking 'without crutches. To heal it many remedies had been tried in vain before Holloway's Ointment and Pills were used, but these excellent remedies being at last resorted to, effectually healed the wound in about nine weeks. were next offered in six lots, all IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OF LORDS. Monday, July 8. . The recent post-office formed the subject 'of some discussion, in the course of which the Bishops of London and Oxford approved of the stoppage of the Sun- [Sunday] day deliveries whic [which] Lord Brougham, the Lord Chief Justice, and other peers, condemned, as leading to a worse desecration than they were designed to remedy, in addition to a very considerable amount of public inconvenience. The General Board of Health Bill went through com- [committee] mittee. [matter] An amendment for referring the measure to a select committee was negatived bya [by] majority of 47 to 18- 99......The [The] Court of Chancery (Ireland) Bill was read a rd Brougham......Some second time, on the motion of conversation took place on the motion for the second read- [reading] ing of the Factories Bill, on which the Duke of Richmond had given notice of an amendment for substituting half- [half past] past five for six as the hour of closing the factories. Ulti- [Ult- Ultimately] mately [lately] it was arranged that the discussion of the amend- [amendment] ment [men] should be taken in committee, Monday next being fixed for that purpose. The bill was then read a secon [second] time. . The Masters' Jurisdiction in Equity Bill, and the Re- [Removal] moval [oval] of Obstructions in the Corn Trade (Scotland) Bill, were severally read a third time and 5 Lord BEaumMoNT [Beaumont] having moved the second reading of the County Courts Extension Bill......Lord BRoUGHAM [Brougham] an- [announced] nounced [announced] that he should bring forward several amendments in the committee....... Lord CAMPBELL apprehended many evils from extending the jurisdiction of the County Courts over actions involving questions of tort. As the general feeling of the country was, however, in favour of the extension, he contented himself with this warning of possible mischiet....... [mischief] The bill was then read a second time. Their lordships then went into committee upon the Benefices in Plurality Bill. The clauses were agreed to, and the house resumed. The Registration of Deeds (Ireland) Bill was also read a second time and the house adjourned. Tuesday, July 9. DEATH OF THE DUKE OF CaAMBRIDGE.-Addresses [Cambridge.-Addresses] of con- [condolence] dolence [silence] to her Majesty and the Duchess of Kent was agreed to nem. [men] con. at the ion of the Marquis of Lansdowne. The report of the Parliamentary Voters (Ireland) Bill was received, and the third reading fixed for Monday next. The Metropolitan Interments Bill passed through com- [committee] mittee. [matter] The other orders of the day were disposed of, and their lordships adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Monday, July 8. The House met at noon, for the purpose of proceeding with the Mercantile Marine Bill On going into commit- [committee] tee, Mr. Morratr [Moriarty] moved an amendment, that it be com- [committed] mitted [fitted] that day six months, which was seconded by Mr. CLAY....... After a short conversation between Sir W. Clay, Lord J. Manners, Mr. Labouchere, [Labourer] Mr. Herries, [Sherries] Mr. Card- [Cardwell] well, and Mr. M'Gregor, the amendment was withdrawn, ard [ad] Lord J. Manners moved that the measure be referred to a select committee, which was negatived by a majority of 86. The house then resolved into committee. The Chairman immediately reported progress, with leave for the committee to sit on Tuesday. EccLestasticaAL [Ecclesiastical] CoMMISSION [Commission] BILL.-On resuming at five o'clock, the house went into committee on the Ecclesiastical Commission Bill....... On the first clause, Mr. Horsman moved an amendment, by which the whole administrative and financial duties of the commission were to be placed under the control of three paid and responsible commis- [comms- commissioners] sioners....... [sinners] Lord J. RUSSELL remarked that the amend- [amendment] ment [men] proposed a wide departure from the course recom- [com- recommended] mended in the report of the committee, of which Mr. Hors- [Horsman] man had himself been 2 member. Many of the objections against this plan were, he added, directed against the general system of church establishment, rather than the special case of the Ecclesiastical Commission. ...... Sir R. INGLIS controverted some of Mr. Horsman's statements o facts, which that hon. member afterwards justified....... Sir B. Hatt [That] supported the amendment with a copious detail of the mal.administration [al.administration] of church properties, and the careless and neglectful manner in which clerical dignitaries very often fulfilled their duties, and argued that the Eccle. [Eccles] siastical [classical] Commission did not properly perform its functions. Sir G. GREY deprecated the course which the argu- [argue- arguments] ments [rents] had taken in attributing pluralities and all other clerical anomalies to the Ecclesiastical Commission. The change contemplated by the bill, in providing for the creation of a small working committee, was, he believed, best calculated to obviate those objections....... Sir J. Pakington [Parkinson] and Mr. Gladstone questioned the accuracy of many of Mr. Horsman's statements and inferences....... After a few words from Mr. E. Denison, Mr. Horsman, and shee [she] P. Wood, the amendment was lost by a majority of 38. Several clauses having been passed, a prolonged discus- [discussion] sion ensued upon the clause introduced in the House of Lords for providing the gradual appointment of a series of sufiragan [suffrage] bishops, who were to receive a reduced scale of income, and enjoy no parliamentary privileges, but were to fulfil a minor and auxiliary range of episcopal duties. Lord J. RUSSELL moved an amendment, whereby the ope- [operation] ration of this clause was considerably restricted and in the debate that followed, Mr. Gladstone, Sir R. Inglis, Mr. Herbert, Sir B. Hall, Mr. Hope, Mr. Henley, Mr. Drummond, Sir T. D. Acland, [Land] Mr. P. Wood, Lord J. Manners, Mr. Turner, and Lord J. Russell, took part. The committee then divided, and the government amend- [amendment] ment [men] was carried by a majority of 163 to 111-52. [W-52] Clauses up to 15 having been agreed to the chairman reported progress and the house resumed. The Incorporation of Boroughs Confirmation Bill and the Population (Census) Bill also went committee. Mr. MacGREGOR [MacGregor] moved the addition of schedules pro- [providing] viding [Riding] a variety of minute statistical returns regarding the employments, productions, possessions and religious tenets of the dwellers in agricultural districts...... Mr. CORNEWALL [CORNWALL] and Sir G. GREY opposed the proposition, which would encumber the returns, and must delay the comple- [compel- completion] tion [ion] of the census. After some lively discussion the motion was withdrawn. A similar bill for Ireland was afterwards carried through committee. The committal of the Home Made Spiritsin [Spirit sin] Bond Bill hav- [have- having] ing been put, the CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER moved that it be committed that day three months. The house divided-for going into committee, 120; against, 121-1 [W-1] The house adjourned at a quarter to two o'clock. Tuesday, July 9. DEATH OF THE DUKE OF CamBRIDGE.-Lord [Cambridge.-Lord] John Russell moved an address to her Majesty, expressing tke [the] deep concern of the house at the loss which her Majesty had sustained by the death of his Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge, which was seconded by the Marquis of Granby, and agreed to unanimously. The house also unanimously agreed to an address of condolence to her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge. EXTENSION OF THE FRANCHISE.-Mr. L. Kine moved for leave to bring in a bill to equalise the franchise in counties and boroughs, by giving the right to voting to occupiers of tenements of the annual value of 10 Premising that the condition and circumstances of the nation had very ma- [materially] terially [trial] changed since the passing of the Reform Act, he argued that our system of representation should be ameud- [amend- amended] ded, [de] because the people had altered and improved in their ideas. He insisted that the presont [present] system grossly violated the constitutional principle that taxation and represention [represent ion] should go together.......Mr. HuME [Home] seconded the motion. He said, the increase in the number ofthe [of the] had not. corresponded with the advance of education and intelli- [until- intelligence] gence [Gents] amongst the people, and he considered the enlarging of the franchise was really extending the basis of our con- [constitution] stitution....... [institution] Sir De Lacy Evans, who had given notice of an amendment to make the payment of income or property tax, or of poor rate, or deposits of a certain amount in savings-banks, a qualification for a vote, offered to withdraw if it interfered with the motion, which he supported on the same grounds as had been urged by the preceding speakers r. ALCocK [O'clock] supported the motion, as well as Mr. GrEoRGE [George] THOMIsON, [Thomas] who characterized our elcctorial [electoral] system as the most unequal and absurd in the world....... r. H. Drummond and Lord D, Stuart supported, and Mr, NEWDEGATE [NEWGATE] opposed the motion, which he charac- [character- characterized] terized [tried] as a crude one, the object of which was not called for by anything in the circumstance in the country......Lerd [country......Lord] JOHN RuSsELL [Russell] obscrved [observed] that if the house desired to extend the franchise, a measure should be brought in early in the session, so that it might receive mature consideration and be proceeded with and passed in the course of that session. To deal with a question of this importance by allowing a bill to be brought in and leaving it on the table was not worthy of the house or fair towards the people. This was sufficient reason for his voting against the motion. With- [Without] out considering whether the representation of that house was exactly satisfactory, he did say that the people of this country were deeply attached to the fixed principles of the present constitution, and he should ask those who called for a change to show what was their plan and that it woula [would] produce results consistent with the present form of the government...... Mr. Bricut [Brit] said, what was asked by this motion was, that the principles which were held good in boroughs should be adopted in counties. Though falling far short of what it was the duty of the go- [government] vernment [Government] to give to the people; it would go some way to show the disposition of parliament to extend their rights, and by degrees take a still increasing number of pcople [people] within the ee of the constitution......J After a short reply from Mr. King, and some indignant remarks from Mr. Grattan upon the present state of the Irish Franchise Bill, MM. DisRaELI [Disraeli] observed that there had been exhibited in this discussion a want of comprehension of what our constitution was, namely-a monarchy modified by the estates of the realm and by the privileged classes-a con- [constitution] stitution [institution] established upon the aristocratical [aristocratic] principle. If they proposed that every man of full age was to be repre- [prepare- represented] sented [scented] in that house, they proposcd [proposed] a revolution, it was plain that then it would be impossible that any power could be exercised by the estates of therealm [the realm] or by the monarchy. If this country was to be, as it had been, aristocratic, and free because aristocratic, let the legislature place power in the monarchy, order in one estate of the realm, and liberty in the other......Sirn.B. [other......Sir.B] HALL, in supporting the motion, charged Mr. Disraeli with having gone down to High Wycombe as a protege of the late Mr. O'Connell and Mr. Hume, and had esired [desired] to represent Marylebone upon liberal principles...... After an explanation from Mr. the house divided, when the motion was negatived by 159 against 100. Mr. ANSTEY moved for a select committee to inquire into the declining state of the coffee trade, which was negatived on a division of 205 against 60. CLOSING OF THE POST OFFICE ON SUNDAYS. After a persevering endeavour on the part of the oppo- [op- opponents] nents [rents] of the motion to 'prevent its discussion at that hour (11 o'clock), Mr. LockE [Lock] mov [move] Loc [Lock an address to her Majesty praying for an inquiry whether the amount of Sunday labour might not be reduced without.completcly [without.completely] putting an end to the collection and delivery of lettors, [letters] on Sundays. He observed that the stoppage of the post communication was a matter of such great importance that it demanded a more careful consideration than it had yet undergone in that The. Government had not received due credit for the extent of the reductions ot Sunday labour in the Post- [Post office] office which they had-effected, and he read an epitome of those reductions ublished [published] in the Quarterly. Review. is 'belief. was that thére [there] would be no real te amount of Sunday labour by the late m [in] there would be merely a shifting of labour, tribution [retribution] of letters and newspa) [new spa] ing transferred from the Post-office to private Teds. He showed the delay, the embarrassments, and the losses which the nD of communication on a Sunday would create, and f labour should be limited to asked why the suspension o ur should hee [her] he Post-office, for if the principle entirety, it would overturn the whole frame-work of society. Mr. Roxrpuck [Roebuck] seconded the motion. As a us uesti [question] bserved, [served] the House of Commons no night to PS vith [with] this question. He denied that the Sab- [Bas- Sabine] own to the Christian religion. It was the en Sundsy [Sunday] they had to consider, and that was a day of rest, set apart for human observance, by human wisdom for human purposes, and on human gram he justified his vote. Rest was to be to th 1 largest number, to interrupted only in cases of necessity and he p toshow [show] that the avila [avail] of the change fell in the greatest proportion upon the poor man, to whom the pothouse [those] was open though the newspaper box was shut. By the combi- [combe- combination] nation of the post-office a very few could do well what would now be rudely done by others, labour being multi- [multiplied] ied fivefold. [field] . as eee [see] ASHLEY said, the house had adopted a resolution, and her Majesty, under the advice of her ministers, ha given directions to close the post-office on Sunday, and in the name of those whom he represented, he demanded a full, fair, and sufficient trial, which the change could not have had within twenty days. Nothing had been alleged to justify a reversal of the decision ot the house, and the arguments of Mr. Locke and Mr. Roebuck pressed with tenfold force upon the case of the metropolis, which had borne without complaint, and suffered no mischief from, a t-office. . on GLIONBY [GLOBE] supported the motion, contending that nothing was more calculated than the late resolution to occasion a desecration of Sunday. en Sir R. INGLIs [English] opposed the motion, which, in his opinion, involved the honour of the Sovereign. He reiterated the remark of Lord Ashley, that the non-delivery of letters on Sunday in the metropolis had occasioned no inconve- [convince- convince] Lord J. RUSSELL explained the position in which the government had been placed by the resolution of the house, which they were bound not to withhold from the Sovereign, whose consent they had advised. Hedid [Headed] not consider that commercial correspondence was the chief matter, but the ition [edition] in which families and domestic affairs were placed by the change, and he owned he could not get over this circumstance, that here was a public charged with the conveyance of letters and armed with authority to prevent their conveyance by others, which might transmit a letter one day addressed to a daughter, communicating the illness of her father, which arriving early on Sunday morning at a provincial town would be detained for twenty- [twenty] four hours The eftect [effect] of this, and there might be a hun- [Hun- hundred] dred [red] of instances, amongst poor families would be distress- [distressing] ing. He recommended the omission of a part of the motion, raying [saying] that pending inquiry, the collection and delivery of on Sunday be continued. Mr. MuNTz [Mount] restated the reasons which had induced him to support the resolution. Mr. GLADSTONE said, nothing had a greater tendency to disparage the authority of the House than to rescinda [rescind] motion, especially one so recently before the result of the change could be seen. He objected to the preamble of the motion, referring to the great public inconvenience which had arisen from the total cessation of any delivery or collection of letters on Sunday. After some observations by Mr. Rice and Mr. A. Hope, Lord J. RUSSELL suggested the omission of the words objected to by Mr. Gladstone and the alteration proposed by the noble lord, retrenching the words at the commence- [commencement] ment [men] and the end of the motion, was then put as an amend. ment, [men] simply praying for inquiry. r some her discussion, in which Sir T. Acland, [Land] Mr. Hume, Mr. Cardwell, Mr. Scholefield, Lord D. Stuart, Lord J. Manners, and other members joined, the house divided, when the original motion was negatived by 233 against 92. After some explanations respecting the course that would be taken when the inquiry was completed, the house divided upon the amendment, which was carried by 195 against 112. The other business having been disposed of, the house adjourned at half-past 2 o'clock. Wednesday, July 10. Str [St] RoBert [Robert] PEet.-Lord [Pete.-Lord] J. RUSSELL gave notice that on Friday, in a committee of the house, he would move an address to her Majesty, praying that her Majesty would be pleased to give directions that a monunitnt [mounting] be erected in the Collegiate Church of Westminster to the memory of the late Sir Robert Peel, with an inscription recording the public sense of his irreparable loss. WEIGATS [WEIGHTS] AND MEASURES BILL.-Sir G. PECHELI [PEEL] moved, That the committee be put off for three months. A short discussion followed, and the general impression of the house seemed to be, that the objections to the bill were matters of detail, fit for consideration in committee, and Sir G. Pechell, [Peel] deferring to this opinion, withdrew his opposition. The house then went into committee upon the bul, [bull] which underwent certain amendments and was re- [reported] ported. MARRIAGE WITH A DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. On the order for the third reading of the Marriages Bill, Mr. WALPOLE moved, that it be deferred for three months, observing that if the bill passed it would utterly subvert the best interests of society by destroying the con- [confidence] fidence [confidence] and happiness of families. Upon the religious question he argued that the bill should have been first in- [introduced] troduced [produced] into the other house, where in a select committee theologians might have pronounced an opinion upon this part of the case. Independently, however, of the Levitical prohibition he contended that these marriages were forbid- [forbidden] den by the Divine command. On the social question Mr. Walpole examined and endeavoured to refute the three reasons upon which the bill was founded -first, that all marriages ought to be free, and this prohibition was an undue restriction; secondly, that by allowing these mar- [marriages] riages [carriages] orphan families had better protectors; and, thirdly, that these marriages were already so numerous that the present law could not be maintained. With reference to the 'ast, [at] he pointed out the unsatisfactory character of the evidence, and implored the house not to pass a bill to re- [repeal] peal a law because people violated it. Colonel THOMPSON, in supporting the bill, cited the remark of Montesquieu with respect toincestuous [to incestuous] marriages, that the principle of prohibition was that of preventing the corruption [correction] of infancy or youth whereas in this case, upon the average the parties were of mature age and discretion. Men, he observed, would always disobey a law which they deemed unreasonable and unjust. Mr. M'NEILL said, in Scotland the opinion of the people, both on religious and social grounds, was opposed to the measure. The Confession of the Faith contained an express declaration upon this particular point, and that Confession was recognised by nineteen-twentieths of the people of Scotland it was ratified by an act of parliament, and con- [confirmed] firmed by the Treaty of Union. The proposition was, that because a certain number of these marriages had been con- [contracted] tracted [traced] in England, where there was a certain amount of desire to have the law altered, therefore the alteration was to be imposed upon the people of Scotland, where there was no such desire. Was this fair Was it not an act of cruel injustice Was it not a reason why the bill should not be passed at all Mr. S. WoRTLEY [Whitley] described the mischiefs which had been produced by the act of 1835, and which, he said, called for aremedy. [remedy] None had been proposed, and would the house leave them without remedy, or pass this bill Upon the social question, he cbaarved, [carved] that none of the evils predicted as the consequences of this measure had been realised in America and why, he asked, should protection be more necessary for English ladies than for those of other coun- [con- countries] tries He denied that the people of Scotland were unani- [Union- unanimous] mous [moss] in their opposition to the bill, and appealed to peti- [pet- petitions] tions [tins] from Scotland in its favour. Mr. F. MaULE [Male] renewed his protest against the bill, not only to its application to Scotland, but to the general ten- [tendency] dency [Denby] of the measure to violate the best feelings of the people, and give encouragement, not merely in this but in other matters, to infringement of the law. Mr. ANSTEY and Mr. WEsTHEAD [West head] spoke in support of the bill, but the house was impatient for a division, which gave a majority of only 10 against Mr. Walpole's amendment, there being 134 ayes and 144 noes. The bill was then read a third time. Mr. OSWALD moved a clause exempting Scotland from the operation of the bill. This was opposed by Mr. S. WortTLey, [Wortley] and, upon a divi- [div- division] sion, negatived by a narrow majority of 7, there being 130 ayes, and 137 noes. The house then adjourned. ee THe [The] Disputes or Mr. Barry anpD [and] Dr. Ret.-In the court of Common Pleas on Saturday, an action was tried for slander, brought by Mr. Charles Barry, architect of the new houses of parliament, against Dr. Reid, who is employed for devising plans for ventilating and warming that building. The defendant pleaded not guilty, and a justification. Dr. Reid had said, I mean to say that in 1845 Mr. Meeson, in conjunction with Mr. Barry, forged a document, and transmitted it to the Commissioners of the Woods and Forests, and, therefore, I decline to act with Mr. Meeson. This was the slan- [san- slander] der [de] of which the plaintiff now complained. The Lord Chief Justice directed the jury to consider whether the term forgery was used in its exact and legal sense, or whether it merely affirmed that the document alluded to contained untruths. He thought himself that the statement was a privileged communication; and advised that the jury be discharged. Mr. Bovile, [Boiler] on behalf of Dr. Reid, wished to say that he gave Mr. Barry credit for good intentions; and Mr. Serjeant [Sergeant] Channel observed that if Dr. Reid withdrew the charge of forgery and wilful misrepresentation, he would agree to the jury being discharged. His Lordship then directed the jury to find a verdict for the defendant on the plea of not guilty, and on the plea of justification they were dis- [discharged] charged without being called upon to give a verdict. Tue Lonpon [London] TEstimoyiaL [Testimonial] To Sir Peet.- [Peet] On Wednesday a preliminary meeting of merchants and bankers took place at the London Tavern, for the purpose of considering the propriety of calling a public meeting in the city of London on the subject of promoting a subscription for raising a testimonial in honour of the lamented statesman. Sir Edward North Buxton was called to the chair. Among those present were Mr. Hume, M.P., Sir Moses Montefiore, [Montevideo] Baronet, Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Sheriff N icoll, [col] and other influential gentlemen. Letters were read approving the object, and expressing regret that the writers could not attend the meeting, from Mr. George Glyn, Mr. Raikes [Rakes] Currie, M.P., Sir James Duke, Alderman Salo- [Saloons] mons, Mr. W. Gladstanes, [Gladstone] Mr. R. D. Mangles, M.P., and several others. The meeting unanim [unani] ously [isl] agreed to a resolution to apply to the Lord Mayor for the use of the Egyptian-hall of the Mansion-house upon the occasion, and the Lord Mayor, who was forthwith waited upon, received the deputation with marked respect, and ap- [appointed] pointed Monday next for the meeting. After a protracted legal discussion, the Court of Queen's Bench has decided against re-instating the Attorney Barber new. His diminution of the. because he was willfully [wilful] blind, and character erel [ere] and he adduced evidence of the division of labour consequent upon the dis- [dis] on the rolls, the Court expressing it as of opinion that if Barber was not directly of the a it was I id not choose ta i real er of ah transactions, in reeries [series] practised. rule has therefore been FROM THE LONDON Gazer, - BANKRUPTS.-Fripay, [BANKRUPTS.-Friday] Jury i J h Boycot, [Boycott] Kidderminster, W . moreen [more] and hatter Jul 9, Aug. 6, Court pt ane [an] Birmingham solicitor, r, .
