A public meeting was held in the Town-hall, North- ampton. on Tuesday evening, on the requisition of the mayor, who presided, to obtain the concurrence of the constituency in the steps Mr. Bradlaugh intends to take with reference to his seat before the close of the Session. Mr. Bradlaugh reviewed what he bad done since the last election, and at the close of his speech asked the electors whether they still had confidence in him. There was an unanimous shout of "Yes" from a densely-packed mass. Mr. Bradlaugh said he should be strong in their strength, and brave with their bravery, and he would not give way, Mr. Manfield moved,—" That this meeting, having read the letter of Mr. Bradlaugh to the Speaker of the House of Commons, expresses its undiminished confi- dence in Mr. Bradlaugh, and its readiness to support him in any legal measures he may deem it expedient to take to secure to Northampton its full consiitutional rights." Mr. Cleaver seconded. Councillor Pugis moved that a deputation from Northampton and other parts of the country should wait upon Mr. Gladstone to urge him to take measures to insure the passage of the Oaths Bill as early as possible. Both resolutions were carried unanimously. Mr. Labouchere heartily approved Mr. Bradlaugh's con- duct, and said no blame was attached to the Govern- ment for dropping the Oaths Bill.
