Ingilby's motion for a reduction of the. duty upon malt, the Hon. Colonel proved himself a friend to his country, being one of the triumphant majority against Ministers, who, now they are in office, only proposed a few paltry reductions, which would not affect or improve the condition of the generality of the kingdom.

THE BO.LITIONIST-Otl Monday se'nnight, a tailorof this city was summoned before the Magistrates for employing his appreiltice, an unhealthy looking lad, beyond the usual hours of the trade.
