LONDON NEWS. "PROVIDENTIAL ESCAPE OF EARL GREY.—Saturday a.f- ternoon, the Right Honourable Earl Grey had a very nar- row escape of losing his life. The noble Earl had just left his residence in Dovvning-strcet, and was in the act of crossing the road, near Little Charles-street, when a waggon horse that had escaped from a boy who was leading him, and gallopping along the road with great fury, rushed within an inch of his Lordship, who must inevitably have been killed on the spot, had not a gentleman, who happened to be passing at the moment, run towards the animal and struck him on the head, which caused him to take another direction. The noble Earl appeared much alarmed, but proceeded along Parliament-street, scarcely an individual recognizing him. PROGRESS OF ('RIME IN LONDON.- Edward Gibbon Wakefield in his facts relating to the punishment of death says—" I had the opportunity of strictly examining more than 100 thieves, of between eight and fourteen years, as to the immediate cause of their becoming thieves and in nineteen cases out of twenty it appeared that the boy had not committed his first crime spontaneously, but had been persuaded to commence the career of thieving by persons whose business is to practise this kind of seduction. The most numerous class of such seducers consists of experienced thieves, both men and boys, who look out for boys not cri- minal, to whom they represent the life of a thief as abound- ing in pleasure." 11 A great number of paupers were brought before the Lord Mayor, charged with having annoyed the attendants at Moorfields Catholic chapel. It appears that hundreds of Irish beggars assemble every Sunday morning at the chapel door, and make a most offensive display of their poverty and infirmities. The officers stated that the nuisance had become most horrible, and that decent people were con- stantly put to the blush by the naked misery of the crowds. Some of the most sturdy and insolent of the beggars were sent by his lordship to Bridewell for a month, and a multi- tude of their comrades who were waiting outside scampered off the moment their doom was fixed. Mr. Strahan, the King's printer, who died on Thursday se'nnight, has left, we understand, property to the amount of more than a inillioif among his friends and relatives. To the son of a banker, in St. Clement's Danes, who married one of his daughters, he has left an estate worth about £ 80,000, and to his wife £ "20,000 in money. To his part- ners and their relatives (seven in number) he has bequeathed £ 15,000 each. DEATH OF A. DAWSON, M.P.—Mr. A. Dawson, M.P. for Louth, died at half-past one o'clock on Sunday morn- ing at his lodgings in Downing-street. He took an active part in the debate on the grant to Ireland on Wednesday week. He has positively been a victim to the excitement and fatigue of'the Reform Bill. On Sunday last a melancholy occurrence took place at the residence of Lady Mary Lake, No. 11, Earl's-terrace, Kensington. It appears that a female domestic to her ladyship, named Martha Williams, about 25 years of age, was seduced, a short time since, by a tradesman, who is father of a family, living in the same neighbourhood. The young woman was pregnant, and, a few days before Sun- day, proceeded to town, and returned with a phial full of tincture of colchicum, for the purpose, as it is supposed, of causing abortion. On Sunday morning the family was much alarmed by the sudden manner in which the young woman was seized with a violent fit of retching, and a cor- responding relaxation of the bowels, which was mistaken for an attack of the cholera. Her ladyship's medical at- tendant, Mr. Garrick, was called in, when, on searching the bed-room, an empty phial was found, in which were disco- vered the dregs of the tincture alluded to. The young woman died in the course of that day. On a post mortem examination, it was ascertained that the unfortunate creature was six weeks enceinte, and that her death was occasioned by a large dose of the tincture. An inquest was held at the Kensington Arms, when the above facts were elicited, and a verdict in accordance with them was returned. An awful instance of sudden death occurred in the family of Mr. Newman Coote, at Havant. On Sunday last, as Sarah Long, the housemaid, was sitting at supper with her fellow-servant, in apparent good health, she was stung by a, wasp, which alarmed her so much that she immediately became extremely ill, and complained of a fullness upon her chest. Mr. Coote, on being called, and thinking she was fainting, carried her to the outer door to give her air, when clinging round him she feebly exclaimed I shall die! I shall die!" and almost immedietely expired in his arms. It was supposed that some vessel or abscess near the heart had burst, and was the cause of her death. HATTON GARDEN.—ARSON.—Elizabeth Holder, a young woman, servant to Mr. Geoige Titterton, brush maker, of 57, Exmouth-street, Clerkenwell, was remanded on the fol- lowing charge of setting fire to her master's house. Three weeks since she was taken into the service of the prosecutor, but her conduct was so bad that he was compelled to give her notice to quit on Tuesday se'nnight. Since that she had behaved herself worse than before and on Friday evening last, about eight o'clock, she procured a quantity of turpentine and grease and threw it upon the fire, which set the chimney in a blaze. The engipes arrived, and the fire- men on going down stairs found the prisoner nearly naked, and pretending to be in hysterics, at the same time crying out, Save my mistress—I have set the house on fire." When the fire in the chimney had been extinguished, flames were observed to burst forth from the window of one of the bed-chambers, in which the bed and furniture were disco- vered to be on fire, and indeed nearly consumed. The pri- soner had, the same afternoon, procured a quantity of shavings from Mr. Titterton's shop, and told two boys in his employ that they would see a fine sight very soon, add- ing, that her mistress would not care about her chimney being on fire, "but she would make her care by setting some- thing else on fire. Mr. Titterton estimates his loss at £50, He is insured in the Sun and Phoenix Fire Offices. The prisoner was remanded. THE CHU RCH.—"It is confidently asserted that Earl Grey is consulting with the Episcopal Bench, for the pur- pose of curtailing the immense revenues of some of the Bishoprics. In future the income of a Bishop is not to exceed £ 5000 a-year, the surplus of his revenues is to be a fund in aid of the building and repairing churches and chapels. The two Irish mitres, now vacant, are at once to come under the new arra n,ement." I-laTripslili,e Telegraph. On Monday last, during the absence of the family, some thieves entered the house of Mr. Cockrell, of No. 125, Tot- tenham-court-road. It appears that Mr. Cockrell and family left town a few days since, leaving his house and property in the care of a female servant, who, on the above day, absented herself to visit some friends. She returned home about eight o'clock in the evening, afid, proceeding to the kitchen, she ate her supper, after which she went up stairs to fasten the windows, &c. On entering the second floor apartment she got a chair to pull down the blinds, when she was seized by a ruffianly-looking fellow, who drag- ged her on the fioor, and, holding a large cook-shop knife over her, threatened to cut her throat if she made the least alnrm. She begged for mercy, and promised not to make a noise, on which her assailant took possession of a bundle, which he had previously packed up, and left the room, threatening to murder her if she made any alarm. On his leaving the room, however, the girl proceeded to the window, and watched until she saw him in the street, when she screamed and called out "stop thief!" when the fellow ran off, and. dropped the bundle in the road. He made his escape. She hastened down stairs until she arrived at the hall, when she fell down in hysterics, in which state she was discovered by several of the neighbours. On searching the.place they found that all the drawers were rifled, and the whole of the silver plate and other property packed up ,in bundles, ready to have been removed from the premises. Information of the transaction was immediately forwarded to the police. Tuesday forenoon, the cash box, which, besides money, contained a watch and other valuables, was stolen from the Black Lion public house, Spitalfields, by a party of four men who had watched an opportunity to possess themselves of it during the temporary absence of Mrs. Bovine, the land- lady, from the bar. Luckily, however, their close whisper- ing, and other conduct, had excited the suspicion of a young man, who was employed at work at an opposite house. He watched their departure, and observing that one of them had a tin box partly concealed under his arm, attempted to stop them. The fellow who carried the cash box threw it down and escaped, but two of the party were secured, and proved to be well-known thieves, named Richard Goulee and Charles Daff. The cash box was picked up and re- turned it was locked and all the property safe. Little more than a week since, Mrs. Cooper, of the Nag's Head, in the Hackney-road, was robbed of a cash box, containing X35 in gold and silver, a £300 bill af Exchange, and other property. Two men had been in the house from seven in the morning till between one and two in the afternoon, watching the opportunity. Unfortunately the property was not missed for two hours after their departure, and has not since been heard of,
COUNTRY, NEWS. It is said to be in contemplation of government to take all turnpike trusts in the kingdom under their own hands. -County Chronicle. A vessel, laden with 40 bullocks, has sprung a leak and gone down near to Balmae Hain," Scotland, about one- half of the mast being seen at low water. The bullocks, being fastened, were drowned, but fortunately all hands were saved.—Stockport Advertiser, A human skeleton, a pair of antient gold steelyards, a pewter dish, a candlestick, and a rich variety of antient coins have been found in the soil excavated at Ware, by some navigators employed in making a new lock on the river Lee.-Her(ford Press. HIGHWAY ROBBERY.—On Monday evening, about nine o'clock, as the servant of Mr. Bell, of Dean's Green, near Broadway, Worcestershire, was returning home after taking a child to school, on arriving at a stile over which it was necessary for her to pass, she observed two men sitting on it, and requested them to let her pass. They replied, No; have you any money?" She answered she was but a poor servant girl and had no money. They, however, took two shillings from her, and then led her towards theTeme. One of the villains proposed to throw her into the river, but the other said, We will not hurt you, Sally, but we must have your clothes." They then proceeded to take off her clothes, and nearly stripped her, when one said, We had better kill her now we have gone so far." At this moment the girl heard the sound of carriage-wheels in the road, which was not far distant, and cried, Murder." The villains hearing the carriage were alarmed and immediately made off. The poor girl found her way to a farm-house, and immediately fainted away, and has been very unwell ever since. HAZARDOUS FROLIC.—A convivial party of Noble Lords, returning, by way of frolic, late on Saturday night, on horse- back, to Wimbleton from Addiscombe, where they had dined, finding the turnpike gate, situate between Tooting and Streatham, thrown open, and being elevated above their usual prudence, passed through the gate at a brisk pace,- without stopping to pay the toll; regardless of the remon- strances and threats of the turnpike-man, who, running after them, believing them to belong to some thieves who had recently committed depredations in the neighbourhood, and discharged the contents of his blunderbuss at their backs.- Happily for them he was no marksman. The Sussex Advertiser says, we learn from Horsham, that the atrocious culprit John Holloway, horrified by the recol- lection of his own iniquities, is now in a state of raving madness. The state of crime throughout the country is said to have lately undergone a new and appalling change. Of high- way robberies, burglaries, and other species of theft, there appears to have been on the different circuits a marked di- minution; but in place of these, offences against nature, and other outrages of new and unparalleled atrocity, attend the march of criminal justice, and give a character to our population from which it had hitherto been exempt.- Morning Herald. The steamer which left Topsham quay on Saturday last took a parcel of sheep on board for the market. Devon- shire mutton is highly prized in the great city," and there is every reason to suppose the export will be continued, two butchers from London having arrived here for the purpose of making the necessary arrangement to set a regular sup- ply of sheep for that market. Should such be the case, the farmers in this neighbourhood cannot fail to reap the be- nefit.- Western Luminary. FROME, AUG. 27.—ATTEMPT OF A HUSBAND TO MURDER HIS WIFE.—Nathan Watts was this day committed to the county gaol by the Rev. Edw. Edgell, for trial at the next assize, on a charge of wilfully and maliciously shooting his wife with ahorse pistol, on the previous Thursday night, soon after the unfortunate woman had retired to bed, with intent to kill her or do her some grievous bodily harm. The pre- servation of her life is solely to be attributed to her attempt- ing to turn away the pistol with her hand, which she raised in her defence the moment her husband presented it to her breast, supposing that he was about to strike her with it; when he instantly fired, by which one of her fingers was struck off, and several shots were lodged in her breast. As yet the poor woman is not considered out of danger. No- thing, it is feared, can be said in extenuation of this horrid attempt; and no signs of compunction appear to attend this unhappy man. His wife had always been considered a hard-working, industrious, and steady woman and had it not been for the love of drink, and the indolent and des- tructive habits which are sure to follow it, Watts, from the many opportunities which he has repeatedly lost owing to this propensity, might have been now in a good situation and happy with his family.
IRELAND. THE MARQUIS OF ANGLESEY.—On Friday his Excellency paid a visit to the celebrated fair of Donnybrook. As soon as he was recognized by the vast crowd assembled, riding into the fair, accompanied by his sons, Lord Alfred and Lord George Paget, he was greeted with loud and enthusi- astic acclamations. His Excellency seemed greatly pleased with the appearance of good-humoured frolic which ani- mated the vast assemblage, and smiled repeatedly at some of tbe traits of Irish humour which were exhibited. His Excellency is in the enjoyment of excellent health and spi- rits,-Dublin Times. THE SEE OF DERRY.—The new Bishop of Derry is fixed irrevocably-it is, as it ought to be, the Bishop of Killaloe. The accident that he was brother-in-law to Earl Grey was no reason why the latter should do him an injustice. The Whigs in office represent a principle. It is not their parlia- mentary power, which must soon cease, that placed them, or would keep them in the ministry. It is that public prin- ciple, which has been the bond of their union and guide of their conduct, which called them to power in a season of public difficulty; and a prelate distinguished for the main- tenance of those principles with effect, and under difficulties, as is Richard Ponsonby, beyond any other man in the church of Ireland, has the same title to such office in his profession as he may be qualified for, as the ministers have to that power which confers it.-Ibid, The committee of Messrs. O'Loghlen and Latouche are this moment in JillL possessiun.

An inquest was held at Castletown church, Queen's County, on the body of the late Thomas Gregory, Esq:, so- .licitor. Mr. Kelly, from Stradbally, presided as coroner, and a jury of six Protestants and six Catholics were sworn -Major Carter, foreman. The principal witness was the clerk of the deceased, who travelled with him. Six men were of the party that committed the murder—one held the reins of the gig horse, while another fired the blunderbuss. Twenty-nine slugs entered Mr. Gregory's body A man of the name of Rochfort, identified as one of the murderers, is in custody. He was named by Mr. Gregory to the magis- trates, who received his dying declaration, and also identi- fied by the clerk. A verdict of wilful murder" was re- turned.-Irish Paper.

IRISII YEOMANRY.—A well informed quarter says, the gradual reduction of the yeomanry will be soon commenced, and to ap- pease the apprehension of those who associate danger with their diminution, a bill will be immediately introduced for the inter- change of militia between the three countries—England, Ireland, and Scotland. This, it is hoped, will give general satisfaction.
FOREIGN NEWS. WARSAW, AUG. 17.—Yesterday and the day before were days of horror. The Patriotic Club, long irritated against the established authorities, and dissatisfied at not seeing General Jankowsky condemned to death, at length de ter- mined on taking violent measures. On the 15th, at eight p. m. the club formally demanded that General Skrzynecki should be ordered to Warsaw. Hereupon they proceeded to the castle, where the 200 National Guards scarcely offered any resistance. The seven prisoners' of state were found, were murdered in their rooms, and the bodies thrown into the gutter, or hung up at the lamp posts. The rioters then proceeded to the houses of several persons already acquitted, and to the house of correction, in which not only the agents of the late police, but also debtors and cheats, were confined many of them were put to death, and their bodies hung up without much ceremony. In this way thirty-five persons lost their lives during the first night. Among them were Generals Jankowski, Bukowski, Hurtig Salacki, and Bent- kowski; the Russian Chamberlain Fustiane; a Russian lady of the name of Bazanow; the Councillor of State Hanckie- wicz, who had been: acquitted; Major Petrikowski, and several police agents. Lessel, the confectioner, who had been acquitted, was saved with much difficulty by General Krukowiecki. Yesterday, about noon, a Russian captain of cavalry, who had been wounded and taken prisoner, was torn from the waggon as it entered the city, and cruelly murdered. In the afternoon Rawecki, the curator of the schools, was hung at a lamp-post. During the night Gen. Krukowiecki was re-appointed Governor of the city. His first measure was to send for military reinforcements, so that a repetition of these horrors is scarcely to be expected. The French and Austrian consuls had already demanded their passports, the government being no longer in a condi- tion to afford them protection. To-day, however, in com- pliance with a wish intimated to them, they have determined not to set off as yet. To-day the government hitherto ex- isting has been dissolved, and General Krukowiecki has been placed at the head; of the new government, with very extended powers. During the hours of terror he displayed much energy and personal bravery. He has already had the president and ten members of the club arrested. By virtue of the powers placed in his hands he has appointed General Prondzynki to the chief command in the army, who is said to have already accepted the appointment. BLON IE, AUG. 17.—On the news that General Rudiger had passed the Vistula,, the Russian army broke up from Lnwicz on the 15th, and, without having met with any re- sistance from the enemy, advanced on the 16th to Blonie, sixteen English miles from Warsaw. The courage of the insurgents seems to be greatly sunk, as is proved by all the concurrent accounts, and by their numerous deserters. Those in larger or smaller parties come daily to the Russian camp, and are sent to their homes. The head-quarters of the Field Marshal are at this moment in Blonie, though the greater part of the troops has already advanced nearer to Warsaw; it is probable the head quarters will follow to-morrow. The crisis is at hand-all must soon be decided. HEAD QUARTERS, NADARZYN, AUGUST 18.—Along bul- letin details the proceedings of the Russian army on its advance from Lowicz. The Poles retreated without fight- ing, only there was a slight skirmish at Szymanow, where the bridges were broken down. Szymanow was partly burnt. The enemy everywhere retreated; and having gained an advance, were not seen till the next day, the 16th, near Blonie. He abandoned the left bank of the Utrata, hardly firing a shot, but proceeded to burn the bridge, and seemed disposed to dispute the passage; but at the ap- proach of the Cossacks they retired, and did not hinder the Russians crossing and restoring the bridge. Many strag- glers very quietly suffered themselves to be taken prisoners on the right bank. The whole army encamped in the evening round the head quarters at Blonie. On the 17th, in the afternoon, Count Witt, with 50 squadrons, some hundred Cossacks, and five batteries of horse artillery, pro- ceeded to reconnoitre towards Warsaw. The enemy had sent two battalions of the 3d regiment of infantry, the Ka- lisch regiment of horse, and two cannon, to the village of Bronicze. This force was commanded by Colonel Gallois. The Russians, having sent a detachment in the rear of the Poles, cut off their retreat to Warsaw. Only a few of their cavalry escaped, but not a man of infantry returned to Warsaw. Several hundreds were killed, and Col. Gallois, with five staff and 29 other officers, and 1322 men, were made prisoners. The two guns were taken. To-day the main body advanced to Nadarzyn, and vanguard to Ros- zyn, seven English miles from Warsaw. A brigade of hus- sars remained in Blonie. Gen. Gerstenweig, with another brigade of light cavalry, is near Piasicznow, whence he communicates with the corps of General Rudiger, which is advancing from Radom. The bridge over which this corps passed the Vistula at Josefaw will be brought to Pulawy, and thus the old line of operation be restored to the army. BRUSSELS, AUGUST 24.-General Daine is removed from active service. The resignation of General du Failly is accepted. The committee of inquiry is going to the spot to examine the conduct of the army of the Meuse, to investi- gate the facts relative to the disobedience of the King's orders, to the precipitate retreat, and to the abandoning of their arms and baggage by some corps. When the facts are ascertained, the affair will be brought before the Su- preme Court. August 25.—The review of 20,000 French troops near Tirlemont was very brilliant. The King and the French Princes were received by the troops with repeated cheers. The French troops are preparing to commence their retro- gade movement to our southern frontiers. That portion of these troops that is to remain in Belgium till the final arrangement of our affairs with Holland will be cantoned in the environs of Nivelles. The head quarters of this army will be fixed in that little town by the end of the week. GHENT, AUGUST 26.—OFFICIAL NEWS.—The Dutch have again violated the armistice. The commissioner of the district of St. Nicholas has just informed the governor of our province that he had received official information of an attack made by these brigands on our outposts at La Irompe, on this side of Kemske. Our brave sharp-shoot- ers, aided by the Civic Guard, repulsed them beyond St. Jeans Steen, in Dutch Flanders. The Dutch left behind one of their killed. We had neither killed or wounded. A correspondent of the Morning Herald, from Brussels, dated Friday evening, states-I informed you in my last that Marshal Gerard had received orders to leave Belgium with the whole of the French army. I believe I was per- fectly correct in my statement, but I am since informed that it is intended that 30,000 only shall return. The reason assigned for the occupation of Belgium by the remaining part of the army is, the fear that Leopold feels that he shall be King of a nation without sufficient military force to pro- tect him. It is said that Leopold had great difficulty in persuading England and France to consent to this arrange- ment.: The intentions of France are still much doubted, and it is believed that Leopold lends himselftothe intrigue. The French that remain intend fixing their head quarters at Nivelles, and garrisoning Mons I believe about 15,000.— The Belgians are magnifying some misunderstanding be- tween the outposts at Trompe into a fresh violation of hos- tilities by the Dutch. This news comes from Ghent, and I have no doubt is got up by the French party. The last division of the Dutch army passed the frontier on the 21st. It is most strange that almost simultaneously in Russia, Prussia, and Hungary, the foolish report is generally spread and believed, that there is a plot to poison the people by the physicians. The Sydney Gazette of the 19th April contains a govern- ment order, the object of which is to put an end to a most singular kind of trafic carried on by the masters and crews of vessels trading between that colony and New Zealand. The trade consists in the purchase of human heads, pre- served in a manner peculiar to that country." This practice, as the Governor truly says, has a tendency to increase the sacrifice of human life." But which party are we to consi- der the savages in this case—the New Zealander, who pre- pares the commodity, or the European who makes the pur- chase? A Methodist chapel has lately been erected in Paris, and for this purpose the French.have opened a separate subscrip- tion, and a sum of £ 500 has been voted by them Mr. Cook, the Methodist missionary there, has been invited to preach in some of the catholic churches; and some Pro- testant works, translated into French, have been presented to the Queen, with which her Majesty declared herself highly delighted. THE CnOLERA.-At Posen they speak of it as a curiosity that no Jew has yet died of the cholera. Mustard (senoy), with red wine, is the remedy or preservative which has been found and proved by these people so efficacious. By order of the Rabbins each Israelite is obliged to eat daily his por- tion of senoy.

HOUSE OF LORDS. TUESDAY, AUGUST 30.—The Barren Lands Tithes Bill was committed on the motion of Lord Wyriford, reported, and ordered to be engrossed. The Duchess of Kent's Annuity Bill was committed and re- ported, and ordered for a third reading to-morrow.—The Plura- lities Bill was read a second time, and ordered to be committed to-morrow. The house resolved itself into a committee on the Subletting (Ireland) Bill. Various verbal amendments were made in the bill; and the house having resumed, the report was ordered to be received on Friday. Their lordships adjourned at eight o'clock. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31.—The Plurality of Benefices 'Bill passed through a committee, some amendments being made in it on the motion of the Archbishop of Canterbury. The bill, as amended, was ordered to be printed.
HOUSE OF COMMONS. TUESDAY, AUGUST 30.—Sir P. Payne presented two peti- tions from places in Bedfordshire, for the abolition of the punish- ment of death in certain cases relating to property. Mr. C. Fergusson gave notice, that in going into the committee on the Scotch reform bill, he should move, as an instruction, that the number of the Scotch county members be not reduced. Mr. Hunt presented a petition from the Westminster Political Union, praying annual parliaments, vote by ballot, and univer- sal suffrage. The hon. member took this occasion to remark, that wherever he went in society, high or low, he found that the public opinion regarding the Reform Bill was essentially changed, and that the majority of the inhabitants of the country now began to discover that they had been deluded. Mr. Littleton said, that if the bill were as popular as it ever had been, which he firmly believed, it owed no thanks to the hon. member for Preston, who had done his utmost to defeat it. (Cheers.) As far as related to the county of Stafford, he (Mr. Littleton) was convinced that the bill had advanced in the favour of well-informed and reflecting people, but it was not to be ex- pected that the excitement which had prevailed during the gene- ral election was never to subside it had now settled down to a tranquil but solid conviction of the benefits of the bill. (Hear.) To all intents and purposes it was now carried its principle was rooted in the country, and it was impossible to check its growth or prevent its maturity. (Cheers.) Mr. Hodges hoped that the house would not lose its valuable time by being provoked into such discussions by the hon. mem- ber for Preston. (Cheers.) He would answer for the unabated feeling of the county of Kent. Several other members declared the opinions of their constitu- ents had undergone no change with regard to the bill. Mr. Hume considered the conduct of the hon. member for Preston utterly at variance with his speeches. If the hon. mem- ber thought the bill a delusion, why not vote like a man accord- ing to his opinions 1 (Cheers.) He ought to oppose manfully by his vote the measure which he opposed not only in his speeches in the house, but in his conversations with individual members, and with people out of the house, and also by getting up peti- tions against it wherever he had influence. Therefore, he (Mr. Hume) asserted, that it was the hon. member himself that de- luded the people. (Cheers.) He thought that the proceedings of such a member were not worth attending to. (Cheers.) FRANCE AND PORTUGAL. Mr. Courtenay moved for the production of copies of the cor- respondence between his Majesty's government and that of Por- tugal, relating to the aggressions of the latter government upon British subjects and also of the correspondence of his Majesty's government with that of France, respecting the proceedings of the latter in enforcing its demands of reparation from Portugal. His only object being to make the country stand well in the eyes of the world-not to embarras the ministers-he should refrain from making any observations on the subject to which those papers referred, until the papers themselves were before the house. Lord Palmerston undertook that the papers should be laid be- fore the house without delay, and the right hon. mover was at liberty to make whatever use of them he thought proper. He thought some other papers, not included in the right hon. gen- tleman's motion, would be necessary to place the whole subject fully before the house, and he should accordingly move for their production.—The motion was put and agreed to. The house having gone into committee on the Iteform Bill, Mr. Bernal said, that the committee had proceeded as far as the words be it enacted," and that it was now proposed to insert, after those words, the following words that no person shall have a right to vote at elections of a member or members for fw city or borough, except by reason of occupation of such premises as are hereinbefore mentioned," which was agreed to. The Chairman having read the next paragraph of the clause, Mr. E. Peel rose to move the amendment of which he had given notice, for the purpose of permanently preserving to free- men in cities and boroughs the rights which they at present possessed with regard to the election of members of parliament. The hon. member moved that after the words "provided also," all the words, down to the words, hereinafter con- tained," should be omitted, for the purpose of inserting to the effect, that every present right or privilege, in respect to the election of members of parliament in such cities or boroughs as shall be entitled to return members to parliament under this bill, which have been possessed by resident freemen in such cities or boroughs in virtue of birth, servitude or marriage, shall be pre- served to them, and that they shall be entitled to vote at the elections of members for such cities and borough, provided they have registered their votes according to the provisions of this bill. After a long discussion between Captain Berkeley, Lord J. Russell, Sir C. Wetherell, Mr. Stanley, and others, the com- mittee divided For the original motion 210 For the amendment 131 Majority against the amendment 79 The Chairman then proceeded to read "Provided also that every person now having a right to vote in any election for any city or borough in virtue of any corporate right, and every child of a freeman, such child being born previously to the passing of this act, and every apprentice bound to any freemen previously to the passing of this act, which child or apprentice would have been entitled to vote in such election if this act had not been passed, shall respectively retain, acquire, and enjoy such right of voting during their respective lives." Mr. Wilks moved the insertion of a sentence extending the provisions of the clause to those who, previous to the passing of this act, had married the wife or daughter of a freeman, and thereby acquired a right of franchise.—The amendment was agreed to. Mr. Trevor rose to move that the right of voting should be continued to non-resident freemen for the term of their lives. After a few words from Mr. Croker, Colonel Beresford, and Sir G. Warrender, the committee divided, when the numbers were— Fortheamendment. 38 t Against it 151 Majority for ministers 113 The Chairman proposed the last part of the clause, rendering it imperative on every person claiming to vote under it, that he shall have "owned, occupied, or inhabited," in the city or borough for which he sets up the light of voting, for six calendar months, in default of which owning, occupying, or inhabiting, he shall not be entitled to be registered. The Chairman then put the question, That the clause, as then amended, stand part of the bill," which was agreed to without a division.— Adjourned. WEDNESDAY, AucusT 31.—A petition presented by Sir R. II, Inglis, signed by 780 Protestants of Ireland, against ths grant .to the Roman Catholic College of Maynooth, produced a long conversation, but was ultimately ordered to be printed. Another petition presented by Mr. Blackney, praying the dis- arming the yeomanry corps of Ireland, led also to a conversation of great length, respecting the affair at Newtownbarry. It was at last ordered to lie on the table. Sir G. Murray gave notice of his intention, with reference to the Scots Reform Bill, to move that all the counties in Scotland possessing, according to the census of 1831, a population of 100,000, should be entitled to send two representatives to parlia- ment. Colonel Lindsay also gave notice of his intention to move that the eastern district of Fife Burghs should continue to have the right of sending members to parliament. The house went into a committee of supply, in which the fol- lowing sums were agreed to :— £ 50,000 for defraying the ex- penses of the Coronation was granted, after some conversation. £16,379 for the expense of the household of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and £5534 for the charges of the offices of Vice Treasurer of Ireland. The last vote led to a conversation of some length relative to the deficiency of upwards of £ 2000 in the accounts of Sir George Hill, the late Vice Treasurer of Ire- land. It was understood, however, that government intended to compel the payment of the money, Various other items of the Irish miscellaneous estimates were voted, after discussions upon most of them of more or less length. In the course of one of them Mr. O'Connell asserted that the yearly income of the see of Derry amounted to £ 20,000. This, however, was denied by Mr. R. Ferguson, who said that during the life of the late Bishop the annual income of the see of Derry had never exceeded £ 12,000. The house having resumed, the report was ordered to be received to-morrow. On the motion of Mr. Spring Rice the report of the Game Bill was taken into further consideration. On the motion that the bill as amended be engrossed, Colonel Sibthorp called for delay, and moved the adjournment of the House. The gallery was cleared for a division, but none took place, aad the original mo- tion was agreed to.—Adjourned.

CORN EXCHANGE, MARK LANE, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31.- The arrivals of both English and foreign grain this morning were small, and of flour but a scanty return. The wheat trade this morning was dull, but the factors refused to take a reduction of Monday's prices. Barley, beans, and peas remain without varia- tion. Oats find buyers slowly, and are rather dull, but Monday's prices are supported. Flour is now generally fixed at-65s per sack.
