Parsons hated the whole tribe of attorneys—perhaps thev 'had not treated him well; but his prejudice against them' was eternally exhibiting itself. One day in the "hall of the Four Courts, an attorney came up to him to beg his subscription towards burying a brother attorney who had died in distressed circumstances. Parsons took out a pound note. Oh, Mr. Parsons," said the applicant, "1 do not want so much. I oniv ask a shilling from each contributor." 0 ii, tlk c it take it replied Parsons "I would most willingly subscribe money any day to put an attorney under ground." u But really, Mr."Par- sons, I have limited myself to a shilling from each person." For pity's sake, my good sir, take the pound and bury twenty of them."—Baun.fs Recollections of O'Connell, STATE OF THE TIMES.—The times are so bad that a -GROAT number of pawnbrokers have notices that they will not take in pledges, it being next to impossible to get rid of unredeemed property.

PORT, on TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE 13th, 1848, the follow- ing resolutions were unanimously adopted — Moved by Mr. Edward Thomas, seconded by Joseph Corsbie, Esquire: That this meeting is of opinion that the House of Commons as at present constituted does not sufficiently express the sentiments of the people that in order to have a full and fair representation it is requisite that a considerable extension of the suffrage should take place; and that the right of voting for members of Parlia- ment ought to be extended to all persons having a fixed residence of a certain duration." Proposed by Mr. Alderman Mullock, seconded by Mr. Counsellor Iggulden That to secure the perfect freedom of the voter, it is requisite that the voting should be by ballot: that the constituencies should be rendered more equal by means of electoral districts and that the duration of Parliament should not exceed three years."

WELSH INTELLIGENCE. ( Continued from the eighth page). for the people (hear and cheers). Whenever any of the ir-crr.- bers touch on the question of economy, the Chancellor of 11-,8 Exchequer meets him in the face at once with the national debt, and says there are E30,000,090 annual interest due on fund which must be provided for, otherwise the national cre- dit is destroyed. But for his (Mr. Blewitt's) own part, he (bl not see why it should not be touched. He did not see why this generation should be taxed for the folly of bygone generation*. This debt was caused by wars carried on between the various sovereigns of Europe, on the centineot of Europe, for the bene- fit of crowned heads and the aristocracy. The debt ought to have been paid by those who contracted it, or those that received the benefit of it. The country never benefitted one shilling by it. It was principally for the benefit of the German family, which has cost no small sum to this country (heai, hear). Well, this debt was always thrown in the way of all reduction of taxation. He thought it ought to be arranged and if he should eVer have the chance to be Prime Minister of this country, he believed he could settle this matter to the satisfaction of the country. The interest of this money should be saddled on the property of the parties whose ancestors created the debt (hear, hear.) The hon. gentleman then touched on the army estimate- and asked what did the country want with a standing arir,y (hear). It was the most unconstitutional establishment in ex- istence, perfectly contrary to the constitution of this country (hear, hear); still it was increasing from year to year (shame The same remarks were appl.cable to the navy. We wajit peace not war Kgreat cheering).. The great ships we have i:1 all directions create war, and engender jealousy (hear). We ought to go to other powers, and tell them, we will lay aside our war ships, and disperse our army, and you will please to do away with yours let us throw them up together (cheers' Our diplomatic system also is most expensive and most useless, particularly on the Continent of Europe. What good do we receive from it (hear, hear)? We are now on the eve of war with Spain, because of the unwarrantable interference of one of our ambassadors (hear). We ought to be truly thank- ful to Spain for kicking our ambassador out of the country (hear, hear). Let all countries do the same (great cheering)". It is said they are of value to keep the balance of power, which is all a farce (cheers). The fact is, a number of young noble- men require places, and these embassies must be created for their benefit; that is the entire good this produces. The hon. gentleman was listened to with much attention, and was most loully cheered throughout his address. Alderman L. Edwards moved the fourth resolution. He was received with great cheers, the meeting looking upon hi in as the veteran soldier in the cause of liberty, who had fought and triumphed in many a battle for the people's rights. lie interestingly mentioned the incidents of former days, and felt proud of the opportunity to declare his highest approbation of his hon. friend's votes in the House. Mr. E. Thomis seconded the vote of thanks to Mr. Blewitt, and, in doing so, said, he hoped Mr. B. would have an oppor- tunity of" catcl;,iiig the speaker's eye," and acquaintingC him with the feeling of this country on the question of further reform. Mr. W. Edwards said he had great pleasure in attending this meeting. Ha was pleased that the people's charter, the purest political document ever published, should be again advocated and he would be willing to take a portion sooner th m be with- out reform altogether. Mr. Hume said he could only get one hundred members to support hi:n, but he took household suffrage and if they were to adopt that they would exclude 1,000,000 voters who ought to be enfranchised. He would rather prefer Mr. Symons's view of the question, as regarded the educational suffrage. He would wish Mr. Blelvtt to ask Sir George Grey whether it was his intention to put down any more public newspapers. He knew that if an article were sent to the Sun newspaper, with twency sovereigns, it would be inserted, regardless of its effect on the political world. Everv one must confess that some alteration is needed; Mr. Blewitt and all present must know that unless something is done the country cannot proceed .in this way. The last quarter they paid a rate of 2a. in the pound, and this quarter it was 2s. 6d!, and how it was to be collected he did not know. He con- cluded by congratulating Mr. Blewitt on the liberal manner in which he had expressed himself; and remarked that he was glad the mayor was not in the chair, as in consequence of some remarks which had fallen from him (the mayor) some disturb- ance might have ensued had he occupied that position. The Chairman put the vote, which wascanied and the thanks of the meeting having been voted to the Chairman, the asselllbly dispersed. The petition is to lie at the Town Hall until Monday next Fur signatures"
