( Continued from our last page.) HOUSE OF LORDS—WEDNESDAY. After veral Bills had been brought up from the House of Commons, The Marquis of WESTMINSTER said that in consequence of the unsettled and unsatisfactory state ol affairs, he should postpone his motion which stood tor Monday, relative to vote by proxy- Earl GREY here rose and said, I rise, my L°f^s the noble Earl here paused. After remaining standing a few moments, the noble earl was so much aftected as to be obliged to resume his seat. The Duke of WELLINGTON, evidently for the purpose of allowing the noble earl time to recover himselt, presented a great number of petitions, pray- ing tor protection to the Church. Earl GREY again rose, and in a low tone of voice, which was very often inaudible, saill-Jy lords, I feel quite ashamed—Hear, hear-at the sort of weakness which I have shewn on this occasion; but having recently seen his Majesty, I have a duty to perform. And, my lords, in rising to propose that you do agree to the report (the Irish Coercion Bill; which has just been read, I no longer do so as a Minister of the Crown, but as an individual Peer of Parliament and I feel, my lords, strongly, the necessity there exists of your agreeing to that mea- sure— Loud cries of hear, hear.—The noble earl then entered into the causes which had induced him in his official capacity to bring forward the measure. At the conclusion of the explanation, the noble earl said, Yesterday morning I received a letter from the noble lord (Alihorp), tendering his resignation. Finding it was unchangeable, I trans- mitted it to his Majesty. It then became necessary toconsider what J should do. It is long since I felt the difficulties of my situation, which were so much above my strength and energies it is well known to my late and present colleagues that it was my wish to retire at the termination of the last session but in which I was overruled. I consequently met the present Session as Minister of the Crown, and I have, therefore, felt anxious to carry those mea- sures which I have considered to be necessary for the welfare of the country. His Majesty has been pleased to accept of mine and Lord Althorp's resignations, and I now only hold office until his Majesty shall be pleased to appoint my successor. The noble earl sat down amidst loud and continued cheers. The Duke of WELLINGTON said that the noble earl had stated the reasons which had induced him to resign, but had shown no reason why his col- loagues in oliice had resigned also—Hear.—View- ing the present state of the country, he could not but consider that his Majesty's servants had left him in circllmstances of difficulty, in which it was especially incumbent on them not to abandon their post.—Hear, hear.—Adverting to the late commu- nications between Mr. Littleton and Mr. OConnell, he contended that a part of the correspondence on that subject had been brought before their lordships, but that it was the duty of the late ministers to furnish also that part which was kept, back. The noble duke then went over an extended review of the policy both foreign and domestic of the late admi- nistration. The LORD CHANCELLOR defended the measures of the late Government at great length. In the course of his speech the noble and learned lord stated that he had not resigned, with an emphasis which occasioned considerable laughter. The report was afterwards agreed to, and the House adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS—WEDNESDAY. At the early sittings numerous petitions were pre- sented in favour of the Established Church, (115 to- gether by Mr. Herbert, and 41 by 31r. Mildmay, &c.) and several on other subjects. At a quarter past five o'clock, there was a very full attendance of members. The Gallery was crowded to excess a few minutes after the doors were open. There were several members in the side Galleries at the time the Speaker took the Chair. Lord ALTHORP rose snd said, that some time since, when the question of the renewal of the Coercion Bill was under consideration, he thought that the three first clauses were not essentially necessary, and might be omitted without endangering the peace of Ireland. After a communication from 'he Lord-Lieutenant to the Government, the subject was again taken into consideration by the Cabinet, when he still remained of the sarr.9 opinion, in which he was joined by the hon. members for Inverness, i Cambridge, Coventry, and Edinburgh, and finding that they formed a minority in the Cabinet, the question then arose whether he should aquiesce in the decision of the majority. He at first felt it his duty to do so but when he heard the statement made by the Secretary for Ireland, on Thursday J last, relative to the communication he had made to the Honourable Member for Dublin, he felt that the difficutlies in which lie wasplaced were insuperable, and the result of the debate convinced him that he could no longer conduct the Government business through the House either with credit to himself or advantage to the country he therefore, on Monday night, wrote to Earl Grey requesting he would tender his resignation to his Majesty, which was done, and his Majesty had accepted it. His friends concurred in the propriety of the step he had taken, and he should be sorry if it were not approved of by the country, and still more so by the members of that House who had always placed confidence in him. In conclusion the noble lord said he should continue to hold the office of Chancellor of the Ex- chequer until his successor was appointed. Mr. LITTLETON then addressed the House. He acknowledged that he had committed two great errors, first in communicating with the hon. and 1e.arned.gentleman opposite without the sanction of his Majesty's government: secondly in placing con- fidence in a person so utterly undeserving ot it. He telt that the wisest thing that he could have done would have been, when he knew that the Coercion Bill was intended to be brought forward, to have instantly resigned; but lie feared that his example in that course might have been followed by others and led to a dissolution of the government, and lie did not think that he was an individual of suflicient importance to be justified in producing such a result. After some further remarks the right hon. gentleman concluded his speech with expressions of his warmest and and sincerest sympathies for the people of Ireland. Mr. O'CONNELL addressed the House in a speech complimentary to the right hon. gentleman and ex- pressive of his own zeal for the interests of Ireland. Mr. HUME regretted the dissolution of an admi- nistration formed upon liberal principles, and con- ceived that nono but an administration formed on similar principles could conduct the affairs of the country. Sir E. KNATCHBULL's motion for committing the Sale of Beer Bill was, on the the suggestion of Mr. Hume, postponed till Friday. 0 On the motion of the SOLICITOR-GENERAL, the Central Criminal Courts Bill, slightly amended' was read a third time.
VISIT OF THE QUKEN TO GERMANY. On Saturday last, her Majesty embarked at Ivoolwich, for Germany, and was escorted by the Lord Mayor of London, in State, and a splendid retinue of noble and distinguished persons. The loyal and affec- tionate acclamations of an immense concourse of spectators were most enthusiastic. THE REVENUE.—The account of the Revenue for the Quarter, ending 5th of July, exhibits of Ret,enue.for the last Quarter 10.217,4451., and for the same Quarter in last year 9,794,153/ of Charge for the past Quarter 9,180,0001., and for the a/lle Quarter in 1833, 9,050.794/. FRIENDLY SOCIETIES. III the debate on the Friendly Societies' Bill, on Tuesday last, Mr. Raines, M.P. said he was of opinion that immense benefit had arisen from Friendly Societies, and particularly au..or.g the labouring classes. He had been informed by a gaoler in a populous district, situate in the county of York, that out of 10,000 prisoners who had been committed to his charge, not one member of a Friendly Society was to oe found among their number. This he considered a very striking instance of the great advantages which had resulted from these Societies. Accounts of the wheat from all the agricultural districts are of the most flattering description and should the pre- sent splendid weather continue, an early and productive harvest may be couidently looked forward to.

HOUSE OF LORDS.—THURSDAY. The 11 iirqui., of LONDONDERRY wished to ask noble lords who continued members of his M'tjes'y's Government, wbelher any measures had been adopted towards the construct in.1 of an Administration. The LORD CHANCELLOR said that no resig- nations had taken place except those of his noble friends Lord Grey and Lord Althorp. He conceived it was not loo long- to wait 21 hours for so dillieult a work as the construction of a new Cabinet. Lord ELLENBOROUGH was understood to say, that the noble and learned lord had not said who had the charge of forming- a new Administration. The LORD CHANCELLOR—Now that is just (ha one thing that 1 will not lliti-ii. I will not uuswer that question, and 110 one shall coaipel me to answer it. I should be betraying my duty to my King, if I were to answer it. If I knew no hing on the subject, I could answer it easily—a laugh but it is because 1 have a knowledge ot the subject that I refuse to answer. The uoble and learned lord continued at some length to address the House in the same ambiguous sti-aiii.-Adjoui-iied.

MERTHYR TYDVIL, SATURDAY, !2- ^1. E,ti-I Gi-e y and Lt)rd tlitliorp-tii(,' twin heads of the Administration in Lords and Commons- have abdicated their ftiticliolis and Lefore tuo Houses, equally astonishedr exhibited their rea- sons for the sar.;e on Wednesday evening last. Lord A It harp made tile fu rt he r decisive declara- tion that the Administration is at end"; a con elusion however not borne out by the premises, for Lord Brougham carefully and emphatically stated in the Peers that hehad not tendered his resignation"—that he" differed from his noble friend, but could not follow his exa.mplc"- further insinuating that he would stick to oflice unless sent to the right about. The avowed and ostensible motives for this ministerial evolution, as given by the two chief actors themselves, arc the indiscreet disclosures and treaties of amity and alliance made by r. Littleton, the Irish Secretary, to and with that great Potentate and Agitator, Dan O'Coniu bllt tbe tallsca sBiglled is notoriously disproportionate to the effect. What the real and secret reasons may be we shall not now, for we have not space, attempt to giye an outline of, although we could make a shrewd guess about then). The O'Connell *iud Littleton farce is doubliess ludi- crous enough) but not more so than poor Lord Althorp's recent notes and Lord Brougham s re plies, as to^theiniporlantpoint whether they should attempt to conciliate the London 'Times' paper, or at once boldly defy and declare war against it"—the notes having become public in a most laughable manner through the torn fragments, which had been tnrown on the floor by the Lord High Clwincellor, having been picked up, care- fully pasted together, and published by some wicked wight- hat a Government—what a t)i.rlesqllc-wli-,tt a collect'()', of ",ill t!ie ti,lc!its" Why the tragedies of Tom Thumb, the Great, and Bombastes Furioso, contain nothing' so transcende-øtly comic by one-half.

The postponement by Earl Grey of the second rending of the Poor Law Amendment Bill in the House of Peers has rather disinclined us from pursuing at any length that examination of it, in its improved shape as finally passed by the Com- mons' House, which we had promised and in- tended. In our last number we made the candid admission that "some of the obnoxious clauses had been struck out or modified, so as to render the measure as a whole less objectionable," but we arc far from considering it yet a sound, whole- some, or advisable piece of legislation we are far from thinking that the evidence adduced justifies so sweeping and uprooting a change in those parts and principles of our institutions which more exclusively determine the rights, privileges, and property of the poor. We arc far from willing that the laws of England should be changed where most strongly impregnated with the spirit of social benevolence, unless that change be to the manifest advantage of the poor man, and im- part a greater security as well as a larger exten- sion to the interests which are his by birthright as well as by compact. Whatever abuses might and did exist in the administration of the Poor Laws, those abuses can never fairly Le quoted against the soundness and the humanity of tie principles on which they were founded by our provident fore- fathers, and they are anything but a justification for the use of the hatchet where the pruning knife alone would have severed from the tree the blight which was eating into its healthiness and diminishing its effectiveness. Instead of the revo- C, lutionary declaration that no able-bodied la- bourer should be entitled to relief" except in special cases to be determined by certain auti- population theorists seated in solemn Divan some hundreds of miles distant perchance from the scene of suffering— instead, we say, of this reckless denunciation of a principle long recognized in British constitutional law, a Iloiise of Commons, fairly representing the mass of the people, ought to have contented itself with affirming that in no case could the wages of labour be paid, ill whole or in part, from fund, like the poor-rates, sacredly destined for the use of the poor alone and this formal re-enactment of what constitutes, in fact, the very essence of the present- e had almost said the old"-Iaw should, in order to its perfect efficiency, have been accompanied with a compulsory pauper provision for Ireland, which, by staying the Hood of destitution and immigration annually inundating and depressing the labour- market and the wages of it, tliii country, would in a short time re-establish a just equili- brium between both, and restore to the Poor Laws a wholesome and well regulated action throughout the empire. We object moreover to the absolute centraliza- tion of any power for controuling" the machinery of the Poor Laws either in Loudon or chtwhere for an attentive consideration of the centraliza- tion system as it works and has worked in France has satisfied us that it is the parent of revolution, despotism, and corruption. To the annihilation of her provincial Parliaments France is mainly indebted for forty years of lyrallny nd revolti- tion, and whilst Paris has become a bloated mass of vice, immorality and irreligion, the Depart- ments at whose cost she has been reve!l:ti,r have i been treated only as the beasts of burden, as the means of pampering her insatiate caprices by exactions of every kind and the endurance uf misery in evcry shape. Local feelings and inte- rests are there invariably sacrificed or uncared for, except ;,s conducive to a metropolitan job, or to swell the amount of ministerial patronage. Is a road to be made, or a bridge to be built, or a mairie (mansion for the Mayor and for pub- lic omces)to be constructed, the the Anhiteds, the COlltradors, yeahe very Clerks of the Works, must be depllted from the Capital. Is a Mayor of a Commune wanted, he is dis- patched by the first Diligence from he bureau of a Minister of the Interior-for the inhabitants of the Commune are [Jot thought worthy a voice ill the election of even this petty Magistrate. Are the poor of ltouen, through vli:issiiu<jes of trade frequently occurring, out of work, out of bread, and absolutely in a state ol starvation there they may rot in the stree's for in France no provision for the poor is made by law-for from King, or Government, or Central authority in Paris, they can look for no succour. Far dif- ferently WOI ks the centralization scheme in the metropolis itself; for, if the workmen of Paris, either in the destitution of 11011-einploymeut or in a spirit of faction, encumber the pav^s and utter cries of discontent, the Treasury Coffers are unlocked without the delay of a moment, and tiie national funds-the taxes paid equally by ill tl)e iiitioii aiiil applicable Olify fur national objects-are lavishly distributed to the right and left, lest barricades should again be formed and the throne of the former barricades be subverted in some "sudden flood of mutiny." Thus we see that, under a centralization dispensation, man becomes invested with two different natures, and the industrious poor of the provinces are reckoned fitting food Oiily for the dogs and the wolves as the case may be, whilst the rabble rout of the metropolis are permitted to run riot at the charge of that joint stock of the State, to the accumu- lation of which the former uufortullate class have so largely contributed. This is no exaggerated picture, but one the reality of which 11 occurs periodically. Scarcely a winter passes that 20, or 30, or 50,000 of the working people of Lyons and St. Etienue may not be seen parading the streets of those great cities, exposed to all its bitter daily and nightly inclemencies, praying for jread, and getting—'tis nil they get under the centralization despotism—the hard stones of the public places, or the doorw ays of the houses of their more fortunate fellow-citizens, whereon to rest their wasted frames until midnight be past and the dawn arouse them, or to steal into eter- nity under the double pressure of cold and famine. With such results before our eyes, we eschew all alliance with a dependance upon a centralizing philosophy. It is possible, and we think it pro- oanle, that the establishment of some central ofiice for leceivmg information on the general condition of the poor thrr.Uoil0ul the coutitrv, and devising plans or their amelioration, might be desira ie, such plans, however, not to have the force of law or to become the law of the land, until presented to, and duly discussed in, Parlia. mellt; the execution of plans moreover in all cases o be entrusted to the local authorities, or notabilities most nearly concerned. An office of his Kind might Le attached and made subordinate to the department of the Home Secretary, within the sphere of whose duties it most naturally enters, and who would thus become responsible for measures which must previously have received his sanction, because previously reflected and discussed hy him. We are favourable in all cases to the appointment of paid, liberally paid, Uveiacers, the better to secure due efficiency in discharge of functions too often of 110 pleasing nature, and to command the services of persons of undoubted respectability of character. But we can perceive no valid reason why the nomination of these executive functionaries should vest else- where than with the higher authorities of the dis- trict or county. In the application of the Poor aws, as of any law based 'upon a general prin- ciple-, it is clear that local circumstances will often arise to modify their application, and that the force of those circumstances must be best appre- ciated aud provided for on the spot. If it be desirable, as probably it is, that the Overseers be equally independent of the rate payers and the poor, we can see no overwhelming necessity neveitheless why the country should be deluged with a horde of Cockney nominees from a Board sitting some hundreds of IlIiles from the scene of action. We are assuredly not wanting in the elements of a provincial tribunal adequate to the fitting selection of delegated authorities. We have Lords Lieutenant and Deputy Lieutenants, the Bench of Quarter Sessions—and Magistrates unpaid and stipendiary. Surely men already exercising such great.puwers^ and endowed with such high legal attributes, cannot all or any of them be incompetent to the task of determining who is and who is not a qualified party to be charged with the superintendence of poor and parish concerns. We tiiroii, out these hints for the consideration of those who are more imme- diately interested, for the subject is of more importance than may at first sight appear. As we have before observed, local circumstances materially influence the action of any system of Poor Laws, and the difference required in the mode of treatment for a manufacturing and a rural population is one exemplification only of the varied phases which the theory will assume when propounded in practice is it too much then to require in all Overseer some acquaintance with local wants, local interests, local habits, local prejudices even; and are we uncharitable in asking how all this can be looked for in a person deputed from town," chosen by a little knot of Economists—some haberdashery shopman per- haps, whose sole recommendations are that he voted for philosopher Grote at the last City elec- tion, and attended the lectures of philosopher Senior on political economy. We had intended, but. have not space for some further observations on the Bastardy enactments of the Poor Laws Amendment Bill; the subject does not press and we Ulay perhaps. resume it on a future day. Suffice it that we differ materially from our gallant Contemporary of the Hereford Times," who would exonerate the man from all the disgrace and pecuniary mulct of an illegiti- mate offspring, and superadd upon poor woman— the weaker vessel-all the shame, sorrow, and money penalty falling ta the lot of her partner in guilt. i ne division seems about. its i,LLr it-i ill;tl of the Irishman with the found bag of money- Yon take the purse, and I'll keep the money, said the honest man to his companion. We are no admirers of the preventive check systems," whether of that brazen philosopher in petti- coats, Harriet Martineau, or of that thorough- going philosopher, Carlile; and we opine that a sufficient moral check lllight he established against the offending woman, by shutting her out from any beneficial interest under the Poor Laws, without offering a premium to her seducer in the shape of all exemption from all penalty* On the whole, as will be seen, there requires many and signal amendments before the Amend- ment Bill-beneficial as some of its provisions undoubtedly are—become incorporated with our Code of Laws. For these improvements we look with confidence to the House of Lords, the natural guardians of the poor man.
Calm and unruffled, as a summer's sea, When not a breath of wind disturbs its surface'' our worthy Contemporary of Swansea had been sometime wending his silent way, until in evil hour the luckless Morning Post" com- mitted an atrocious libel" upon that immaculate person, Henry Lord Brougham and Vaux. Kings were dethroned and exiled, Princes sought our shores—Don Carlos fled here, and Don Miguel nobody knows where—Poor Laws were debated by Grote, Coercion Bills thundered about by O'Con lell, Church spoliation measures twaddled about by Ellice, but not for all that did the Cambrian" give signs of life not until the Lord High Chancellor, the father of all libel, was himself libelled did it awaken from its happy state of quiescence and torpor, and favour its friends with—a leading article a very phial of wrath in its way We warn our neighbour 011 a next occasion not so lavishly to expend his ire, but to bottle some for further and better use. The facts of the case are simply as follow. III passing judgment in a certain case, Lord Brougham stepped out of the record in order to pass a most unfounded libel upon the solicitors to the appellants, for having advised an appeal which ought never to have been prosecuted to the Lords. The Morning Post" challenged hia Lordship with having himself, when simple coun- sellor, advised this very appeal, and stated moreover—which was an indefensible libel i" truth—that his Lordship was so ashamed of hi judgment that he had caused it to be wrongly entered (that is opposed to the fact) all tl-e Journals of the House. For this the Editor was summoned before the Peers, and after fair ex- planation and apology justly reprimanded fcr latter part of the charge and discharged. So far all was perfectly in order—the Editor had oftended and was punished surely this might have satisfied our Contemporary. We have it however under the Iwnds of the respectable solicitors implicated, that Lord Brougham did as counsel advise the appeal which as judge he condemned. And lIot oldy lie, but Lord Ten" terden(abetterandagreater Judge than he ever was or will be) before whom the case was ori- ginally tried, as well as Sir James Scarlett, senior counsel with Brougham in it, advised the appeal, because the law of the case was so delicate and doubtful a point. Upon this Lord Brougham himself admits that as Counsel he did so counsel, but, adds he cunningly, the cause has bee" argued in the Exchequer since, and I was then Chancellor therefore my former advice did not apply. The solicitors respond to this qu ibble that all ap eal to the Lords would not in point of form be lodged without the case first passing through the Exchequer or another Court, and that therefore the former was chose" as being the least costly and most expeditious and that Lord Brougham was aware of all this, or ought to have been, when as Counsel lie ad" vised the Appeal, and when as Judge in dernier resurt he tried it. Now miirk his Lordship was thus convicted of gross ignorance of the law, of gross libel upon men as respectable as himsef and surely for a man in his position calumnv, or ignorance, or both, must be of a deeper d ie thII that committed by a man writing necessarily III great haste, and therefore unable always well to weigh the import of words, or the meaning: of technical forms. Can the Cambrian" recollect no other instances of Lord Brougham's addiction to libel, and pleading privilege of Parliament against punishment—that of McKerrell, for il1 stance, among others. If the god of his idolatry be therefore so old a sinner, surely that should incline his heart to a little charity, more especially to a brother of his own order.

The private correspondent of the Morni» £ Post" states that the Carlists in the North are making rapid progress and that the Juntas ill Navarre, Alava, Basque, and G uipuzcoa Itft: persons of great influence and talent. He also states that the Carlist force in those distflct amount to 18,000 men, and that the inhabitant are to a man devoted to Don Carlos's cause. The Count de Carthagena has published a Amnesty, from which however all Carlist Chid* are excepted. Zavaleta, a Carlist General who was made prisoner on the 18th June, was directed to hold hims If in readiness for iname diate death, which it was expected would shortly be inflicted. A letter frotn Lisbon states that Don Miguc'' while on board the British Frigate at SineS, executed a protest declaring that force aloi'6" compelled him to sign the paper which appeared in the Chronica, and that he did not yield tI his right to the throne of Portugal. It is add*' that Palmella, the British minister, and Admir3 Parker, went on board the frigate, whilst yet ill Cascaes. bay, to persuade Don Miguel to with- draw this protest, which he refused to do.
