VICE-CHANCELLOR'S COURT, JUNE…
VICE-CHANCELLOR'S COURT, JUNE 30. Mr B. Montagu took his seat within the bar upon his appointment as King's Counsel. IN RE ANN Fox.—Mr Kindersley and Mr Duck- worth supported this petition, praying for the discbarge [ of an order which had been obtained on the ex parte I application of a person named Marston, for a writ de ventre tnspllendQ affecting the present petitioner. There being an objection to the production of an affidavit in consequence of its only having been filed at a late hour yesterday. Mr Knight consented to let the matter stand over till Saturday, to enable the party to answer the ffida- vit, but proposed, in the meantime, that the petitioner, who was the widow of a currier in Staffordshire, should consent to an investigation by tworespectable matrons, and a medical gentleman. It really appeared foolish to tal lv of nervousness and fright as an objection, for ^ie lady was constantly in the habit of attending meetings of a re:igious description, as late as 9 o'clock at night. It was not intended to adopt the severer mode of our ancestors, of confining the lady in a castle, nor did his client desire to exercise the slightest degree of harsh- ness, but if the present proposal was not accepted, it would be his duty to insist on his right at common law. Mr Kindersley, on the part of the petitioner, said the proposition might be considered as acceded to, if he should not be instructed to mention the subject again.

The Brussels papers of the 29th ult. contain the following document t BNVSSELS, June 28. Official—War Department. "Order of the Day to the Army. l'" 1UC ifllnlster of War, in consequence oi trie numerous applications, which have been made to him, thinks it necessary to inform the army, th.u the government has not authorised either the levy or the formation of auxiliary corps, destined to serve out of the kingdom and that in consequence he has had no occasion to decide on any kind of licence to be granted for this purpose to the general or supe- rior officers, whose names have been mentioned in the journals. The officers will, therefore, refrain from making applications to the War Department, with a view to obtain permission to serve in these pretended corps, which never existed except in the public journals, by which this statement has been promulgated, without its civer having had the smallest foundation. The Minister of War, (Signed) BARON EVAIV. Brussels, June 2D." It would appear from this that King Leopold does not approve of the officers of his army hiring themselves as mercenaries, and exposing to de- struction his people in a cause in which Belgium is in no wise interested. The Whigs might take a lesson from the King of the Belgians. ::J I aiis. The following extract from a decree la!ely issued by Don Carlos is especially recommended to the notice of Col. Evans, and respectable band of emi- grant coster-mongers from the purlieus, ofWestminster, and the scum of the surrounding workhouses. I order and decree as follows :— -1 Article J. All strangers, without distinction of rank or s;rade, who shall take up arms against my legitimate rights, or who shall serve, by any means whatsoever, the rebel army of the usurpation, shall be deprived of the benefits of existing laws, nor shall they be considered as included in the convention for the exchange of prisoner?,' signed by my authority by my Commanderi-n-Chief, at Asarta, on the 28th of April last. Art. 2. All strangeis above noticed who shall fall into our hands shall, atter time being vivezi them to perform their religious dutie?, be instantly shot." We are fully aware tnat it is essentially necessary that 99 of every 100 of those who are trying to escape what they may deem a worse fate by accompanying the gal- lant Colonel, should travel for the good of their country," and that it would be a pity to baulk them in the execution of a plan so truly patriotic—but it is only fair to let them go with their eyes open. The gallant Colonel says he ,has led six forlorn hopes. He seems ambitious of a seventh. Every man has his taste. The brave band now drink hard, if they can, and talk largely. They do not now admit their pe- culiar qualifications for such a service, but iilci boca de la canon lo hace confessor."

The reserve left Plymouth on the preceding Monday and marched from thence to Ilfracombe. The reserve remained at Cardiff till Monday morning, when they proceeded to Caerphilly and Newbridge, on their mach to Brecon, to relieve ttie reserve of the 11th Regiment, under the cominaud of Colonel Bishop, We are rejoiced to hear that the Bishop ofLlan- daff has taken a home for two years in the centre of his diocese; but we are sorry to add that that house is Llandough Castle, whose much respected occupier intends travelling for the above period. Few of the satisfactions of this life are unmixed. It had been reported that his lordship would probably take Peulline Castle, or Green Meadow, both most con- veniently situated for the Bishop's residence. There are times in which we would see every good man at his post, dispensing his charities, expending his income, and above all, giving the inestimable benefit of a good example to his neighbours of all classes It is now, if ever, a paramount duty with every friend of his country to help her through her difficulties and though the gallant colonel would be the last man that Would desert the ship and seek the shore, ? When the winds whistle and the tempests roar." We cannot help repeating that we are truly coucernd at losing so useful a country gentleman for so long a i time. We feel much concern in having to record a mc- ancholy and fatal occurrence in the family of the Re Sir Francis Lynch Rlosse, Bart., at his country resi- dence, Milford, near Brar, on Saturday last, when tbe nurse being in the act of playing with the Reverend Baronet's youngest child (aged nearly 2 years) on the window stool of the drawing-room, momentarity turned round to speak to one of the other children in the samtf room, and the poor baby lost its balance, and was pre- cipitated on its head to the ground, a distance of about 12 feet.

On Friday June 26th the Foundation Stone of tbe" new Church was laid at this place by the eldest 50:1 of Samuel Ulamfi-ay, Esq. of Bedwellly House. A prl,, cession was formed by the principal inhabitants, fi,O" the market house, and after the stone was lowered to Its place the 12211d Psalm %i as sung and a most apprc* priate and impressive prayer for the Divine Blessing on the undertaking was offered up by the Rev. EVOO Jenkins, of Dowluis the stone was then levelled and squared and finally fixed in its pl.tce, greeted by the shouts of the assembled multitude, which a immense, notwithstanding the incessant rain tvbic^ fell the whole of the day. The Rev.

It is pleasing to have to record, that the iitereatiilg ceremony was attended by the Wesleyan and Di»e°' ing ministers resident in the town.

The Penryn Election Committee met on W ed- nesday 'it ten o'clock, Mr Wilks chairman. The peti- tion alleges that the sitting member, by his agents and friends, was guilty of bribery, corruption, and using intimidation at the late election. It therefore prays that the return may be declared null and void, and that the committee would resolve that Lord Tulla- more was duly elected. Mr Harrison, counsel for the c petitioners, stated that various acts of violence and I intimidation had been resorted to, to compel voters either to give their votes to Mr Rolfc, or to forbear L either to give their votes to Mr Rolfc, or to forbear voting for Lord Tullamore. Large sums of money were offered, and in many instances paid bv the agents, friends, and supporters of Mr Rolfe, -to induce them to vote for him. Public-houses were kept open ail night, and the poorer classes of voters were in a continued state of intoxication, and most of those who promised to Support Lord Tullamore did not do so the second day, and his majority completely disa.ppc^re^- bribery oath was then tendered by his friends to Mr Rolfe s voters, most of whom refused to take it, and the consequence of all was, that Mr Rolfe was returned by a majority of 22, the numbers at the final close of the poll being, for Rolfe, 348; Lord Tullamore, 326. Besides this, the government influence was used to support Mr Rolfe in a most ille- gal and unconstitutional manner. Falmouth was a packet station, and had a resident superintendent, so that government had great influence, as all the persons ¡ connected with the packets were under the controul of the superintendent, and liable to dismissal if they did not obey his wishes. That officer, Captain Andrew I King, openly avowed that he acted under express orders from the Board of Admiralty, contained in a letter sent him from the board, and signed by the Hon. Captaian Elliot, which was shewn to several, and compelled many persons under his cotitroiii, who were electors, to'vote for Mr Rolfe against their known and declared, wishes and oft-expressed intention to give their votes to Lord Tullamore, and many others to forbear voting at all. There were several other grounds on which he sought to set aside the election, as many persons had voted and were placed on the poll who were not entitled to vote at all. The committee after- wards adjourned till eleven o'clock on Thursday. BRITISII WOOL.-The weight as well as quality of the present year's clip is the subject of general remark, but the following circumstance it is believed is almost unprecedented. A few days since Mr. Hewett, of Land farm, Silverton, Devon, sheared a two-year old ram, which gave the extraordinary quantity of 22 £ lbs. of wool, of 14 inches in length. This ani- mal was sheared as a hog, last year, and gave JSJ lbs. of wool.
HOUSE OF LORDS.—WEDNESDAY.
HOUSE OF LORDS.—WEDNESDAY. The Western Australian Bill, the Sugar Duties Bill, and the Isle of Man Corn Importation Bill, severally ¡' went through Committee. The Merchant Seamen's Bill was read a second time, and ordered to be committed.
I HOUSE OF COMMONS.—WEDNESDAY.
HOUSE OF COMMONS.—WEDNESDAY. Lord J. RUSSELL brought up the report of the evidence taken by Sir F. Roe, at Wolverhampton, and bore testimony to the commendable forbearance and correct judgment of the military on that occasion. After hearing evidence as to the state of health of Mr O'Malley, confined in Newgate on account of the Ipswich election, the House ordered him to be dis- charged. Sir W. RAE's motion on the Church of Scotland was withdrawn, on tlie statement of Lord J. Russell that a Commission should be appointed on the subject. Lord J. RUSSELL, in moving the order of the day for a Committe of the whole Ilouse on the Municipal Reform Bill, said that he wished to give notice re- specting the persons concerned in the transactions of the Ipswich election, who were^ to called to the bar of specting the persons concerned in the transactions of the Ipswich election, who were to called to the bar of the House on Saturday next. Taking into considera- tion the state of the session, and the number of wit- nesses that there were to be examined, he had come to the conclusion that it would be far better that such an inquiry should take place before a Select Committee of the House. (Hear, hear.) It was, therefore, h s intention to move, on Friday next, that a Select Committee be appointed for that purpose, and that it should be framed in the same manner as similar Com- mittees were last session and the session before. He sc would, consequently, propose that nine or eleven Mem- bers be chosen by lot, and that two be chosen by the House, for the benefit of each party. (Hear.) The order of the day having been read, the House went into Committee on the Bill. After a few words from Mr Hughes Hughes, Mr P. Stewart, and Lord J. Russell, the purport of which was unintelligible in the gallery, the 22nd clause, as amended, was ordered to stand part of the Bill. The 23rd clause, which enacts that a third part of the council should go out annually, having been read, Mr AGLION BY proposed that the clause should be so framed as that those members of the town council who were to go out in 1836 and 1837 should be those who had attended the fewest number of times. This amendment was also negatived. Colonel SIBTIIORPE then moved as an amend- Colonel SIBTIIORPE then moved as an amend- ment, that After the words shall go out of office in the year 1836,' be omitted all the words to the end of the words, in the present year,' for the purpose of in- serting these words, that those who shall go out of office shall be such councillors as shall be by open vote so chosen at each period at WHICH sucn removal or diange of one third, and consequent re-election of some number of councillors to fill up the vacancy, shall be deemed ne- cessary. No councillor who shall have been removed shall be re-elected into the office within the period of three years after such removal.' Lord J. RUSSELL opposed the motion. After a few words from Mr Goulburn, Colonel Sib- thorpe's amendment was negatived without a division and the clause, after some verbal alterations had been made in it, was agreed to. On clause 24 being proposed, Mr B. HOY brought forward the amendment of which he had given notice, That the votes at elections for the council be taken openly, in the manner now usual at elections for members to serve in Parliament." He could not help considering the clause as it stood as an insidious method of introducing the vote by ballot. Mr GROTE, in rising to propose his amendment, regretted that vote by ballot did not form a part of the Bill. The object of his amendment was to empower the town council, in any community where they thought it would be expedient, to adopt the mode of votingby ballot. The amendment having been put, a discussion en- sued, when, Mr ELPHINSTONE offered his testimony in favor of the ballot. Lord HOWICK gave his testimony against it. Mr GROTE then withdrew his amendment, and clause 24 was ordered to stand part of the Bill. Clause 25 and 26 passed, after a short conversation. On clause 27 being read, An Hon. Member proposed that in case of an equalitv of votes for any two or more candidates for the office of councillorship, the election should be decided by lot, instead of leaving it to the choice of the mayor. The Committee divided, when the numbers were— for the amendment 142; against it 190; majority 58. Clause 27, with amendment, was then agreed to, and ordered to stand part of the BJJ. Clauses 28 and 29 were then read, and ordered to stand part of the Bill. On clause 30 being read, Lord STANLEY proposed an amendment, that within certain limits to leave open a latitude, and to take 10,000 as the lowest point, enacting that there should not be more than three wards when the inha- bitants were under 18,000, and not less than six when they amounted to 25,000. He was not over solicitous about the precise numbers; but if the noble lord opposite would only accede to the principle which he had laid do\yn, he should not think himself justified in pressing upon him the precise numbers. He should say that towns that had more than ten or twelve thousand people should be divided into wards, and that the towns should increase in wards till they amounted in a population of 25,000. If the Government would accede to the principles of his views he would give up the details. He should, therefore, move pro forma his amendment on the preamble. (Hear, hear.)' Lord J. RUSSELL said that the noble lord's ques- tion was worthy of the attention of the House, and it was in fact a question of considerable importance, though it referred rather to details than to principles. He was disposed so far to agree with his noble friend as to consider whether towns that had less than 25,000 inhabitants ought not to be divided into wards. Having heard his noble friend's proposition only for the first time, he would wish his noble friend to postpone his amendment that it might be printed and distri- buted amongst the Members of the House. He could only say that the division of towns into wards might prove of utility to the Bill. Mr B. HOY postponed his amendment, after a few words, which were inaudible in the gallery. Lord STANLEY would postpone his amendment, on the condition that it should be taken into consideration on bringing up the report. Mr HUME hoped that Ministers would not accede to the proposition of the noble lord. The clause was then postponed. Clauses 30, 31 and 82 were then passed. upon clause 33 being proposed, Mr GOULBURN said that he thought that separate properties in separate wards ought to give separate votes. Sir J. HOBIIOUSE said it was useless to argue that question until it should be determined to divide places into different wards. But, at all events, he was opposed to accumulative votes. After a few observations from Mr Brotherton, Mr Baines, Lord F. Egerton, and tue Attorney-General, the clause was agreed to. Clauses 34 and 35 were also agreed to. The 36th clause was also agreed to. Upon the motion of Lord J. RUSSELL^ the Chair- man reported progress, and obtained leave to sit again to-morrow. Mr OLIPHANT brought in aBill to abolish the con- vention of Royal Burghs in Scotland. The other orders of the day were then disposed of, and the House adjourned at a quarter past one o'clock.
AYRSHIRE ELECTION—The nomination took place at Ayr on Saturday. At first considerable in-j terest was excited from a belief that, besides the Tory candidate, Sir J. Cathcart, and the Liberal candidate, Captain Dunlop, Mr John Taylor, would have come forward as a Radical. Two days ago, however, Mr Taylor withdrew in favor of the captain. The sheriff said this was the sixth time he had gone through the same ceremony within four years. Elias Cathcart, Esquire, Advocate, proposed and .Mr Kerr, of Robertland seconded, Captain' Dunlop. Sir Charles Lamb, and Mr Mitchell, 0f Glenfarn, discharged the same duty for Sir John Cathcart. Both candidates addressed the electors in explanation of their public principles; but very great disinclination was „manifest- ed to hear Sir John Cathcart. Mr Taylor subsequently spoke. The sheriff declared the show of hands for Captain Dunlop. A poll having been demanded on the part of Sir John Cathcart, the sheriff fixed Tuesday and Wednesday. MR MATHEWS—This eminent and facetious comedian, died on Saturday last, at Devonport. He was the son of a bookseller in the Strand, where he was born in June, 1776 "If private worth, an unblemished and unimpeachable reputation, and talents of the highest order as a comedian are a passport for fame, then will the name of Charles Mathews be recorded in the annals of the stage as one of its brightest ornaments." "Alas, poor Yorick—I knew him, Horatio, a man of infinite jest: of most excellent fancy—where be your gibes now? your gambols? your songs? your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar ? Now get you to my lady's chamber, and tell her, let her paint an ingh thick, to this favor she must come

LA TES T INTE, L LIGENCE ) LONDON, WEDNESDAY EVENING- THE KING'S LEVEE—The Kinir, attended by Sir Herbert Taylor, arrived in town at half-past one o'clock, on Wednesday afternoon, from Windsor Castle. His Majesty was received at St. James's by the Duke of Cambridge.—At two o'clock the King held a Levee. The House of Lords met this morning in com- mittee of privileges. Evidence having been heard in support of the rights of Lord Teignmouth and Lord Waterpark to vote for the election of representative peers in Ireland, their lordships decided that these noblemen had substantiated their claim, and directed their names to be added to the list. Lilst eveiiiiia, during the debate on the Muni- cipal Corporation Bill, Lord Stanley addressed the house from the front opposition bench. When the noble lord rose there was some laughter from the mi- nisterial side of the House, which was followed by loud cheers from the opposition. PENRYN ELECTION COMMITTEE.-The committee PENRYN ELECTION COMMITTEE.—The committee assembled again this morning, when, after remaining some time in deliberation, the chairman (Mr Wilks) stated that the committee had resolved on receiving parol evidence to prove the identity of the poll books. The examination of witnesses was then commenced, and was continued the whole morning. A private letter from Paris expresses a hope that the General still lives; and in support of that opinion, notices that up to the 26th ult. Madame Zuina- lacarreguy had not the slightest idea that her husband's life was in danger. The accounts received from various quarters do not, however, permit us to entertain any doubts that he has finished his extraordinary career bv a glorious death. Eraso, his successor, is an officer of great merit. The Duke of Wellington has, on more occasions than one, mentioned his acquirements as a soldier in the-highest terms of admiration. The intelligence communicated by the French telegraph states, that on the 27th ult. the seige of Bilboa continued. There is no other news from the North of Spain. Various reports arc in circulation, but none of them are to be relied upon. It is said that Don Carlos has entered Portugalette, with the bayonet. As yet there is no regularly authenticated account of the death of Zumalacarreguy. This circumstance may be considered strange but the various rumours which stock-jobbing, with its hundred tongues, sends forth, are only the necessary and incidental consequences of any contest. The French papers are full of the trial of a person named La Ronciere, a militaire, for a monstrous outrage on the daughter ef General Morel, and con- tain little else.

NOTICES TO CORItgSPODEXTS. We are requested to state that the account of a marriage, said to have taken place at Cardiff, of Miss Mary Ann Stnith and a Mr. Whitinf, is whody incorrect. The statement was apparently authenticated. The letter in which it was given was sent through the Cardiff Post- Office, and is signed 41 Jno James.' The orillinal is at the service of the young lady's friendf, if ;hey require it. The great length of our reports of the Quarter Sessions for the three Counties this week, aad other matter oblige us to beg the indulgence of our Corespondents. Our Swansea friend will, we are sure, at once acknow- ledge the impossibility of complying with his wish, which we would, have willingly done if in our power.
MERTHYR TYDVIL, SATURDAY,…
MERTHYR TYDVIL, SATURDAY, July 4, 1835 Lord Morpeth has brought forward his Irish Church Robbing Bill—vie love to call things by their right names—though he promulgated his sacrilegious doctrines and principles in the gen- tlest manner and the softest tones, enunciated his cruelties sotto voce, and roared" his spoliation clauses like any sucking dove."—We will never believe that this monstrous bill can become the law of the land. It may pass a House pledged to its no principles-but the Wing-headed and serpent tailed abortion, will be arrested in another place. The substance of the atrocious project is, (we meddle not with the commutation portion of the Bill, which is but the peg on which to hang the plunder) that wherever the Protestant inha- bitants do not amount to 50, the standard of population to be taken from the censtts of 1831, the appointment to such benefice, on voidance, is to be suspended, and the income reserved for such purposes as may hereafter be directed. But such is Lord Morpeth O'Connell's affection for the Protestant Church, that even in the suspended parish, there shall be a provision for spiritual casualties, by a princely remuneration of £ 5. a year! Thus adding insult to injury, just as a robber, having stripped and wounded his vic- tim would hurl a penny at his head, that he may not faint by the way for Jack of means. If the income of a benefice exceed £ 300 a year, the Ecclesiastical Commissioners are empowered to make such deductions as they may think neces- sary—such deduction of course to swell the amount of the Robbery—we beg pardon—the Reserved" fund. The maximum stipend of an Irish Protestant Clergyman, it is easy to foresee, will be £ 300 the minimum 1.5 a year and what is the estimated advantage to be derived from I this sacrilege why £ 50,000 a year: compare the paltry gain from this attrocity with the manly declaration of a Conservative statesman. Hear Sir Robert Peel, and his mode of dealing with Church Property. "After making his deduction of 30 per cent. on the present amount of titlies-after making every allow- ance which he should find practically necessary in realizing his rent-charge—after having opened com- position-after having provided for the new churches and fhe new glebehouses he was about to build- after providing for the augmentation of the curates' salaries in the new parishes—the noble lord might depend on it be might spare himself the trouble for providing in detail for the appropriation of his surplus. (Loud Cheers.) His conclusions were erroneous, and there would actually be no to distribute. (Cheers.) Let tbem make a fresh distribution of the church revenues—let them do away with the allotments of 51, where there was no Protestant congregation, instead of 65/. to the curate —let them allot 501. to enable a man in decency to maintain his family (cheers), and the noble lord would have no surplus to appropriate for secular purposes. (Cheers.) Let them maintain the principle of an establishment. (Cheers.) Let them provide for its adequate maintenance. (Cheers.) Let them secure it by doing away with all pluralities (Cheers) --by doing away with all sinecures, in the sense in which that word was used. (Cheers.) Let them plant in every parish in Ireland a clergyman to per- form his sacred functions (Cheers), and allow him a fair and becoming maintenance, and while there would be no surplus to appropriate, there would be no quarrel to foment and continue amongst them." We hope, if ever this Bill should pass into a law, that a Missionary Society will be immedi- ately established, the express scene of who.se labours shall be IRELAD-IRELAND, the priest- ridden—the soul-enslaved—and who shall plant on her dreary waste the Light of Truth—the Banner of the Reformation. We hope, that men duly armed, and qualified by the highest autho- rity and the best spirit, will carry an incursive War into the Camp of the Enemy, unl ar the Dungeon in which Popery holds her victims, and lead forth the Captives to liberty and light. Our prayer is, that the gross ignorance and the thick darkness which enshroud that unhappy people, shall flee before the might and majesty of Scriptural Truth; that a deliverer shall liberate them from their worse than Egyptian taskmasters and that the awful apostacy, in which murder and treachery have met together, and perjury and Popery have embraced each other," shall yield to the purer influence of the True Faith. If the arm of a State, which should be only raised to protect, is put forth to spoliate,it becomes ourtirat Christian duty to extend the hand of Charity, and endea- vour to remedy, so far as human aid can remedy, the evil. The Church of Ireland, thank GOD, has something better than her Temporalities. An un-Christian Government may pauperize, but cannot destroy; her poverty may be over-ruled into new forms of spiritual life and energy; she will shake off the slumbers of her more affluent days, and, braving the pike of the Assassin, and the rage of her old enemy—the Dragon, carry on her Holy Warfare with weapons drawn from a Celestial Armoury. The conflict with Popery will then not he for Temporaries, but for souls; and Ireland, now the wilderness of bloodshed and barbarism, shall stand redeemed, regenerated, and disenthralled, and her waste places blossom as the rose.
We do not wish here to put to Lord Palmer- ston the question which has been so often asked in vain, namely how the doctrine of non-inter- vention" (his own word) is to be reconciled with any interference with the internal government of foreign countries, nor are we desirous at present of questioning the power or the policy of the Go- vernment in thus partially repealing the Foreign Enlistment Act without the authority of Parlia- ment; we are willing to admit, for the sake of argument that his Majesty's Ministers are duly '•licensed to let half-pay officers wholesale and for exportation, and that their doing so in this instance will be productive both of benefits, and and of protocols as numerous and as decided as the brave Belgian business itself; but we con- fess we entertain some awkward doubts as to the justice and morality of the transaction in a na- tional point of view. Here are our own officers, sanctioned by our own Government, about to pro- ceed to a foreign country to engage in a civil war, and deliberately to kill men from whom we have not received the slightest provocation, who have done us no injury, and with whom we are not at Wrlf. "Oh ? hut," say the Liberals, Don Carlos is a rebel-it is to quell a rebellion." In the first plnce we say it is for Spain not for England to decide whether he is a rebel-but if he be one, and our officers are to be employed by our Government to quell the rebellion, why are they to be paid by the Spanish Government ? If it be necessary or expedient that England should assist the Queens Government, it is quite clear that the officers employed by their country in such a service would serve as fillies or auxiliaries and not as mercenaries, and receive pay only from the Government whose officers they were. They are either British officers (though serving 111 Spain) or Spanish mercenaries, and their re- ceiving SpdlllSh pay seems to us to de- ids the question. If war were declared against Don Carlos they would be fight ing their countn's bat- tle, but how can they be fighting as English offi- cers against persons who are not at war with Eiigiatid ? No, in spite of all the fiecloriti, and blustering, all the^swaggering and Plliling-" the cause of freedom, Ct'ie liberal and enlightened Government of the Queen," the usurper Carlos," and the rebel Zumalacarreguy," the fact cannot be concealed or oetned that these men are Spa- nish mercenarIes-fightlllg for hire in a cHlse in which thev have no interest but the amount of their pay. They are about' to kill deliberately and with malice aforethought," men. with whom they have not any quarrel nationally or indivi- dually. Crill such condiict be, in a moral point of view, distingmshed from murder? What do our esteemed friends Messrs Price and Waring think cf it It 's With regret and surprise we observe Col. Evans s name at the head of such a scheme. He has not even tlie miserable apology of want of money or of employment thanks to his marriage and to his consituency he has plenty of both but to use the well-known words of that model of all heroes, Mr Jonathan Wild the Great: 'Tis the inward glory, the secret consciousness of doing great and wonder- ful actions which can alone support the t uly great man, whether he be a conqueror, a tyrant, a statesman, or a prig (thief.) These must bear him up against the private curse and the public imprecation; and while he is hated and detested by mankind, must make him inwardly satisfied with himself. For what else could inspire men possessed of power, of wealth, of every human blessing which pride, avarice, or luxury c:>uld desire, to forsake their homes, abandon ease and repose, and at the expense of riches and plea- sures, at the price of labour and hardship, and at the hazard of all fortune hath given them, could send them at the head of a multitude of prigs, called an army, to molest their neighbours to introduce rape, rapine, bloodshed, and every kind of misery among their own species ?" But if we must thus think of Colonel Evans, a man who is indebted to wars and fightings" for even the very moderate quantity of notoriety lie has achieved, and who therefore is naturally anxious to try if he cannot by the same means achieve a little more, who is ready to fight any- body for nothing, or somebody for anyth'iig, a kind of human sword in a friend's hand v hat must be our opinion of the contriver of the who!e scheme, of the original inventor of this aggrava- tion of the horrors of a civil war, by the employ- ment of British Officers as mercenaries, who without even the excuse of the military habits and tastes of the Member for Westminster, cou'd deliberately plan those complicated miseries which he now tempts his countrymen to inflict on a people, in relation to England, innocent of even the smallest offence? The Cupid of the Antients was fond of mischief, but it was on a very paltry scale compared to that of the Cupid ¡ of the Moderns.
