Jeffcott, but they had arrived after the ship which was to take him out to Sierra Leone, had sailed. We understand, however, that a memorial has been ad- dressed to the Colonial Secretary, and it has been reported that a fast-sailing cutter has been dispatched after the Brito- mart. At half-past seven o'clock on Saturday evening, the Coroner for the city issued a summons for the assembling of a jury to hold an inquest, and a jury of most respectable men met the same evening, and having proceeded to view the body, they were dismissed until nine o'clock on Monday, for the purpose, in the mean time, of the body undergoing a post mortem examination. The following is the substance of Mr. Barnes's examination :—He continued to attend Dr. Hennis constantly, until within a few minutes of his death, which took place on Saturday evening shortly before five o'clock. Dr. Hennis was perfectly sensible that it was a mortal wound, and was heard to express that opinion on the Friday morning. He received the sacrament on Satur- day, the day after he received the wound, and again the day before his death, and the Rev. Mr. Clack, the father of the youhg lady to whom Dr. Hennis was very shortly to liave been married, administeted it. He was at times clouded, but generally collected, clear, and firm, till within a few hours of his death, with occasional wanderings, from his fever and the effect of medicine. He asked Mr. Barnes's opinion of his state at eleven o'clock on Friday morning, sayidg-" Will it soon prove fatal 1" When Mr. Barnes an- swered to this anxious inquiry I fear you are not so well," Dr. Hennis then said I know it must soon be over." He then paused, and added" I could not help it, I tried-I have no one to blame-protect all if you can, especially the married-may I see my brother? I shall soon be out of this scene, before the Governor of us all." About half an hour after he again spoke to Mr. Barnes. He took Mr. Barnes by the hand and said Thank you for all your kind- ness-poor Halsted could not but go out with me-he is the son of a widow, he would not have gone with any other person—it was to serve me, but he was compelled to do so by two other gentlemen." He was then about to receive the sacrament. He immediately afterwards expired.- The following is the verdict of the coroner's jury :— "That Peter Hennis, Esq. M.D., came by his death from a pistol ball, fired by Sir John Jeffcott, of Haldon, in the county of Devon, on the 10th May and that Captain George Halsted, Charles Milford, and Robert Holland, were there aiding and abetting the said Sir John Jeffcott; and further, that Sir John Jeffcott, Captain George Halsted, Charles Milford, and Robert Holland, are severally guilty of wilful murder. The jurors, considering that Captain George Halsted did every thing in his power to prevent the duel, regret that they feel themselves compelled by the law to return this verdict against him." Mee, who was chairman at the Coldbath-fields meeting, has surrendered himself to the warrant issued from the Secretary of State's office. THE KING V. LORD TEYNHAM AND ANOTHER.—Mr. Pol- lock said he was instructed in this case, in which Lord Teyn- ham and another had been convicted of a conspiracy, to move for a rule to show cause why a new trial should not be granted, and the verdict set aside. As, however, in all criminal cases, it was necessary to have the Judge's notes of the trial read, he now had to ask their Lordships to appoint a day for his making the application.—The Lord Chief Justice: I think you may make the application on Monday next. His, Lordship afterwards said there was a case spe- cially appointed for Monday; perhaps it would be better therefore to name Thursday.—Mr. Pollock Very well, my Lord any day that suits the convenience of the Court.- The Lord Chief Justice I suppose the prosecutor is ready to move the judgment of the Court against the defendants. -Sir James Scarlett had not received any instructions on that point.—Mr. Pollock We will take care to give the prosecutor notice of this application. After some further conversation, it was ordered that the application for a new trial should be made on Thursday next. PUBLIC MEETIKG—DISMISSAL OF MINISTERs.-At a meeting of the members of the Political Union, on Thursday evening, held at the large room in Mr. Chadwick's, it was resolved to hold a public meeting to consider the propriety of addressing his Majesty to dismiss his present Ministers, in consequence of their manifest inability to conduct the af- fairs of the country, and their total unwillingness to relieve the people from the enormous pressure of taxation," which was accordingly announced by placard, and the meeting took place at twelve o'clock yesterday. At the hour ap- pointed, not more than two or three hundred persons were in the square, but in a short time afterwards, the numbers were considerably increased, and soon after one o'clock we sho"ld say that there were not less than 6000 persons as- sembled. A resolution to the above effect was moved and seconded, but before the chairman put it to the meeting, considerable uproar took place, in consequence of an amend- ment being moved to the effect that the meeting form themselves into an association of volunteers," during which the chairman resigned his office, and the meeting ultimately separated, without effecting the object they had assembled for.—Sheffield Iris. CARNARVON ELECTION COMMITTEE.—On Tuesday, the committee in this case decided that, in the borough of Car- narvon, with the other tributary towns of Nevis, &c., ac- cording to the ancient charter, the scot and lot right of voting was established. This decision will let in a large number of voters admitted on the poll books de bene esse. i The committee then adjourned. Mr. Peter, the Member for Bodmin, has given notice that, on the 10th of June, he will move for leave to bring in a bill for the purpose of amending and consolidating the laws relating to the Observance of the Lord's Day." He stated that there are already sixty acts on this subject; and that their amendment and consolidation will answer every desirable object. The late Old Bailey Sessions were the shortest known for many years; the whole of the business having been gone through in four days. In Bury gaol, last year, there were 117 persons confined for poaching—a greater number than in any other prison in the kingdom, Devizes and Winchester excepted. IMPORTANT TO SHIP BUILDERS.- Baltic timber and plank are now imported into the Isle of Man upon payment of a duty of 5s per load upon the former, and 8s" per load upon the latter; whereas.in every other port of the United Kingdom the duty per load upon Baltic timber is £2. 15s, and that upon Baltic plank is S4. As all vessels built in the Isle of Man are, under the existing law, entitled to Bri- tish registry, it is not to be wondered that this inequality of duty has attracted the attention of speculators. Such is the case. A number of Liverpool merchants have formed themselves into a company for the purpose of building ships at the Isle t}f Man for the English market. In consequence of this, the L verpoo) ship-builders have already petitioned the Legislature for an equalization of the duty payable on those articles, and for protection from the undue advantages which the ship-builders in the Isle of Man possess over them and a petition of the Sunderland ship-builders, hav- ing a similar object, was a few days ago in the course of signature, and has since been sent to Mr. Alderman Thomp- son, the talented Member for Sunderland, for presentation to the House of Commons; and we cannot but urge upon all those engaged in ship-building, the necessity there is for activity in petitioning the Legislature. If the present rate of duty be continued, the Isle of Man will be one huge ship-building yard, and the other British ship-builders will be ruined.-Newcastle Journal.

HOUSE OF LORDS. TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY.—The proceedings of these even- ings were confined to the presentation of petitions and the for- warding of private bills.
HOUSE OF COMMONS. TUESDAY, MAY 21.—BANK CHARTER.-Lord Althorp gave notice, that he should, on Friday se'nnight, submit a proposition to the house upon the subject of the bank charter. Mr. D. W. Harvey rose to submit a motion to the house on the subject of the pensions paid out of the civil list. His opinion was, that no portion of the public money should be paid to any person, unless some known and adequate service had been ren- dered and his object, on the present occasion, was to discover what services had been rendered to the country by the numerous persons (most of them ladies) whose names appeared on the pension list. The hon. member contended that little had yet been done towards relieving the distresses of the people, and that the great drawbacks upon the public energies, in the shape of unjust sinecures and extravagant salaries, had been left almost untouched. The noble lord opposite and his colleagues had honourably consented to a deduction of ten per cent. from their salaries, and he (Mr. Harvey) would venture to say that if the same deduction were made from the pensions of the civil list, and from all the payments which came under the head of half- pay," superannuations," and sinecures," a more than suffi- cient sum would be realised to meet the loss occasioned by the repeal of the assessed taxes. The hon. member, after alluding to the recent meeting in the metropolis as a proof of the increasing want of confidence on the part of the country in the good inten- tions of government, and expressing his belief that revolution must be the inevitable consequence of inattention to the misery of the people, moved for a return of all persons on the English, Irish, and Scotch pension lists, heretofore paid out of the civil list, specifying with each name the sum received by each indivi- dual the period of grant, the public grounds, or other consider- ation, so far as practicable, on account of which they have been granted distinguishing those who are widows and orphans of deceased public servants, and such as are in the receipt of any salary, profits, pay, fees, and emoluments from any public source. Mr. Hume seconded the motion. Lord Althorp had no objection to that part of the motion which referred to the pensions on the consolidated fund, but objected to its being extended to the pensions on the civil list, inasmuch as the former were completely under the control of parliament, while the civil list pensions, as being guaranteed during the life of the monarch, could only properly come under the cognizance of par- liament at the commencement of a new reign. As to the charges brought by the hon. gentleman against ministers, he would then attempt no reply, further than to observe, that he was confident that ere a few weeks were over, and when all the measures of ministers for reform for this session were before the house, the country would be of a very different opinion. Mr. Harvey had no objection to separate the civil list pensions from those on the consolidated fund, and therefore would confine his motion to the latter. The principle of which he complained was the monstrous injustice of taxing the industrious poor of England for the support of the idle hangers-on of a court or a minister. (Hear, hear.) But this would not last long. The 19th century was not the time, and England was not the place, for taxing the people for the luxurious and lascivious laziness of an insolent aristocracy. (Hear, hear.) The noble lord and his colleagues had therefore better apply themselves in time to put their house in order. After some further remarks from Lords Althorp and John Russell, Colonel Evans, and Messrs. O'Connell, Robinson, and Hume, the amended motion was agreed to. ASSESSED TAXES. Mr. Baillie presented several petitions from Bristol against these taxes, after which Sir S.' Whalley brought forward his motion respecting the repeal of the house and window taxes, and after pointing out the oppressive nature of this impost, and ad- verting to the unequal manner in which it pressed upon the mid- dling and lower classes, and the insufficiency of the relief pro- posed by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, he concluded by moving that all taxes on houses and windows should cease after the 5th of October next.—Mr. Alderman Wood seconded the motion. Mr. Spring Rice contended that the house and window taxes, so far from being peculiarly oppressive to the industrious classes, were principally borne by the wealthy portion of the community, and entered into a variety of details to prove this to be the case, and to show that the measure proposed by the government would afford relief to a very considerable extent to all shopkeepers. The repeal of these taxes, he stated, would occasion a reduction in the revenue of £ 2,500,000, and unless other taxes were proposed to supply the deficiency, such a reduction could not be made con- sistently with the preservation of public credit. Colonel Evans supported the motion, and observed that the de- ficiency might be amply provided for by reducing the military and other establishments of the country. He protested against its being supposed that he and his party wished to break faith with the public creditor. Lord Althorp opposed the motion, on the ground that such a redu( tio I of taxation could not be made at the present time con- sistent y uith the preservation of the existing establishments of, the country in a state of efficiency. His lordship admitted that the system of surcharges was liable to great objection, and ought to be remedied. The motion was supported by Mr. Brotherton, Sir W. Ingilby, Mr. Roebuck, Mr. Tooke, Mr. Hume, and Mr. Tennyson and was opposed by the Attorney-General, Mr. Ward, and Mr. Ser- geant Spankie. The following were the numbers, on a division- For the motion 124 Against it 273 Majority 149 Majority 149 BRISTOL ELECTION. Mr. Warburton presented a petition, signed by 2500 electors of Bristol, praying that the evidence laid before the election com- mittee, which had decided in favour of the sitting members, should be laid before the house, in order that hon. members might be aware of the nature of the practices which were pur- sued at the elections. Mr. Bailie declared there never was an election in which there had been less corruption than in the last at Bristol. The whole expense had not exceededf900, although it might be considered to have lasted three months, since operations had commenced immediately after the passing of the reform bill. Out of the three individuals who had signed the election petition against the return, two had signed the requisition for him (Mr. Bailie) to come forward, and the third had wished to sign it, but was not permitted. The petitioners against the return were so much afraid their petition would be declared frivolous and vexa- tious, that they entered into an agreement beforehand to pay the expense of the only witness that was brought forward. After remarks from different hon. members, in the course of which Mr. Warburton stated that the evidence proved the exist- ence of extensive corruption, the house divided on the motion that the evidence taken before the Bristol committee be laid be- fore the house :— Ayes 42 N oes 8 Majority —34 The Stamp Duties Bill, "to reduce the stamp duties on ad- vertisements and on certatn sea insurances to repeal the stamp duties on receipts for sums under f5, and to exempt insurances on farming stock and implements of industry from stamp duties," was read a first time, and ordered for a second reading on Friday. Mr. C. Grant gave notice that, on the 11th June, he should move some resolutions respecting the East India Company's Charter.—Adjourned. WEDNESDAY, MAY 22.-Lord Eastnor brought up the report of the committee appointed to inquire into the merits of the Car- narvon election petition, stated that Major Nanney was not duly elected, and that Sir C. Paget ought to have been returned.- The Clerk of the Crown was ordered to attend to-morrow to amend the return. Mr. Roebuck postponed the motion of which he had given no- tice, relative to the Coldbath-fields meeting, till a day which did not reach us in the gallery. Mr. Tooke moved the appointment of a select committee, to consider the provisions of the reform act, with the view to make such amendments as may contribute to the better, cheaper, and more convenient working of the act. He stated that his object was not to invalidate the principle of the act, hut merely to make such alterations in its practical operation as the experience of the last elections had shown to be necessary.—Lord John Russell op- posed the motion on the ground of the inexpediency of making alterations until further experience had been obtained as to the working of the act.—Mr. Warburton considered the proposed in- quiry too unlimited, and proposed an amendment to the effect that the consideratation of the committee should be limited to an inquiry into the contradictory decisions that had been come to by the revising banisters, returning officers, and election commit- tees. The motion and the amendment were opposed by the Soli- citor General, Mr. Robinson, Mr. S. Rice, Mr. B. Cartel, Mr. C. Wynn, Mr. Abercromby, Mr. Pease, Mr. C. Grant, Mr. Sandford, and Mr. Ellice, on the ground that further time should be allowed before making any alterations in a measure, of the practical working of which theconntry had: had go little experi- ence, and that it would be impossible in the present state of the public business to pay sufficient attention to the subject this ses- sion. Mr. O'Connet), Mr. Jervis, Mr. Haliburtonn, Mr. Wason, Mr. Hume, Mr. Halcomb, Mr. Lloyd, Mr. Wallace, and Mr. Buller, spoke in favour of an inquiry being instituted, without delay, into those parts of the act which had been found to be un- certain and inconvenient in their operation.-In the course of the debate the Solicitor-General stated, in reply to a question from Mr. Sandford, that government had deliberated upon the alterations suggested to be introduced in the act, and would bring forward some measure upon the subject early next session.—The motion and amendment were ultimately withdrawn, and Mr. Warburton then brought forward his amendment, as a distinct motion, upon which the house divided- For the motion Againstit. 94 For the motion Against it 94 Majority against the appointment of a Com- — mittee 26 Mr. R. Grant moved the second reading of the Jewish Civil Disabilities Bill, which was opposed by Sir R. Inglis, as an at- tempt to unchristianise the country, and as being highly inex- pedient owing to the exclusive character of the Jews. He moved, as an amendment, that the bill be read a second time that day six months.—Mr. Sinclair, Mr. Finch, Sir 0. Moseley, Mr. Buller, and Mr. Plumptre, also opposed the bill, chiefly on re- ligious grounds, considering it inconsistent with the Christian character of the institutions of the country.—Dr. Lushington denied that the passing of this bill would endanger the Christian character of the country, and contended that persons of all re- ligions ought to be admissible to civil offices, unless it could be proved that some mischiefwoutd arise from their admission.—The bill was also supported by Mr. Buckingham, Mr. Finn, Mr. Petre, and Lord J. Russell, and, on a division, the second reading was carried by a majority of 137, the numbers being— For the second reading. 189 Against it 52 The Privy Council Bill was considered in committee, when the Solicitor General proposed a clause, empowering his Majesty to add X400 a-year to the allowances of four retired judges for the services to be rendered by them in the Privy Council.—Mr. Jervis objected to the increased allowance, which he said would give the government the facility of removing obnoxious judges from the bench, by offering this additional salary. He proposed that the additional allowance should be extended only to retired colonial judges.—Mr. Hume and several other members sup- ported the objections of Mr. Jervis and the Solicitor General said, he should not object to limit the addition to the colonial judges.— Mr. Hughes moved that the committee be counted, when there were not more than 28 members present, consequently the house adjourned.
GREAT MEETING AT BIRMINGHAM. On Monday last, a public meeting was held at Newhall- hill, Birmingham, which was attended by, it is supposed, at least 80,000 persons. The principal object of assembling was to petition the King for the dismissal of his present Ministers. At twelve o'clock the scene was very imposing; but from the decorations of the numerous members of the different Unions, the gay dresses of the females, and the booths and stalls erected for the disposal of refreshments, &c., the whole had the appearance of an immense concourse of happy Englishmen, congregated rather to enjoy a holi- day, than for the purpose of entering upon the stormy dis- cussion of politics, and the consideration of the faithless promises of public men. The committee of management had made such admirable arrangements, that the business of the day was conducted with the best regard to order, and the utmost harmony and unanimity, blended with unabated enthusiasm, characterised the conduct of this immense body of people, who, after the conclusion of the proceedings, separated without the commission of the slightest breach of the peace. The principal speakers were Mr. Muntz (Hon. Sec. to the Birmingham Union), Mr. Thomas Attwood, and Mr. O'Connell. The sentiments delivered are, to a great degree, expressed in the following address to his Ma- jesty, which was agreed to without any dissentient, and directed to be forwarded to Earl Fitzwilliam for presenta- tion :— i To the King's most excellent Majesty, m Sire,—We, your Majesty's dutiful and loyal subjects, inhabit- ants of the town and neighbourhood of Birmingham, assembled in a great meeting at New Hall-hill, on the 20th May, 1833, beg to approach your Majesty's throne, to implore your Majesty to exert your royal prerogative for the good of your faithful people. For a long period of years, Sire, by a system of unjust legisla- tion and cruel oppression, the industrious classes amongst your Majesty's subjects have been placed in a situation of extreme distre|s; the labourer has been deprived of his hire; his employer has frJfi'n deprived ef his fair profitindustry has been paralyzed. Such a >tate of things ea\i never long exist, without creating fear- ful discontent. It is to the existence of this state of things, that is mainly to be ascribed the demands on the part of the people, for the restoration of their lost political rights to a real represen- tation in the House of Commons, and to the want of which they have attributed the misgoyerniment and oppression of which they have so long been made the. victims. It is now, Sire, nearly three years since your Majesty graciously was pleased to call to the royal councils your Majesty's present advisers. With your Majesty's gracious sanction, they under- took the great work of restoring to the people the right to be really represented in their own House of Parliament. On the introduction of the Bill of Reform before the Legisla- ture, the peoople set no bounds to their joy and their gratitude they fondly flattered themselves that, at length, they were blessed with a Government which was sensible of their multiplied wrongs and calamities; they flattered themselves that your Majesty's Ministers had undertaken the great duty of Parliamentary Reform in order to obtain the power and the means of doing justice to the industrious classes, and of restoring to the country its long-lost prosperity. It would be superfluous in us to remind your Majesty of the unwearied patience and never-failing zeal with which your Ma- jesty's faithful subjects supported your Majesty's Ministers in carrying the Reform Bill into law. Sire,—We are at a loss for words to express the deep, the bitter disappointment with which we have since that time discovered that all the confidence which we placed in your Majesty's Mi- nisters, has been betrayed, and that all our hopes are blasted. By the passing of the Reform Bill, and by the confidence of the people, your Majesty's Ministers have been entrusted with unlimited power, for good or for evil. But what, sire, has been the good which they have done ? They commenced their ill- omened career by destroying, at one blow, the liberties of Ire- land, and setting the fearful example of endeavouring to stifle the voice of supplicating misery.by the employment of unconstitu- tional power. They have, in direct contradiction of the avowed principles of their former lives, refused to allow the people the right of voting by ballot, so as to enable them to vote, unbiassed by fear or influ- ence, in the choice of their representatives. They have actually denied the existence of general distress amongst the industrious classes, and have pertinaciously refused all inquiry into the means of its relief, although, as if in mockery of the people's sufferings, they have since appointed two com- mittees to inquire into the state of agriculture and commerce," the wretched state of both being as notorious as the sun at noon day. They have persevered in the unjust and cruel corn laws; they have refused to diminish the overwhelming burdens with which the people are oppressed, in any perceptible degree they even, perpetuate the house and, window tax.; and although the House of Commons had deliberately decided on the partial abolition of the odious malt tax, they have literally caused the House .of Commons to rescind its vote, and to continue to inflict the whole of that oppressive tax upon the people. What then, Sire, is the fruit which the people are to reap from reform 1 Such conduct on the part of the ministers proves that they are either insincere in their pretended advocacy of reform, or that they were infatuated enough to imagine that it was the name and not the substance, the shadow and not the reality, which the people sought with so much labour and perseverance to obtain. Such conduct proves that under their administration the pass- ing of the Reform Bill must be rather a curse than a blessing to the very men by whose means and for whose good its passing was effected. Such conduct proves that under their administration industry must go without its reward, and consequently property without its protection that there must be no happiness for the present, and no hope for the future. Such conduct is but too well calculated to break up the bonds by which society is bound together, to extinguish the last ray of hope in the breasts of despairing millions, and to render your Majesty's dominions a melancholy scene of lawless violence and irremedial confusion. It is in this fearful situation of our country that we venture to approach your Majesty's throne with this statement of our wrongs, our sorrow, and our tears—the destinies of your faithful people are in your Majesty's hands. We humbly, respectfully, and earnestlyimplore your Majesty to be graeiously pleased to dismiss from your Majesty's councils the men, who having in their hands the power of redressing the wrongs and healing the injuries of the industrious classes, and thereby lulling into repose the storms of political agitation, and spreading throughout the country the blessings of tranquillity and content, have, by neglecting these sacred duties, proved them- selves utterly incapable of extricating the country from its dan- gers, and unworthy of the high station in which it has pleased your Majesty to place them, and we implore your Majesty to give your Royal confidence to no man who is not determined to adopt prompt, decisive, and efficient measures to accomplish the restoration of the national prosperity, and who does not deem it the first duty of a statesman to secure to honest industry its just reward. We pray God, Sire, long to preserve your Majesty's life, and to enable your Majesty to accomplish the great work of securing the liberty, and of restoring the prosperity, of your Majesty's faithful and loyal people. Two petitions to the House of Commons were also agreed to; one complaining of the monopoly of the corn laws, and the other praying for the repeal of the malt duty.
