SUMMARY OF THiv WliEK'S PROCEEDINGS ill PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OF LORDS —THURSDAY. THEOLOGY. The Bishop of EXETER rose to call attention to the letter of Dr. Murray, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin, to Lord Melbourne. The Right Rev. Prelate said he held in his hand a work which had been much spoken of, Dens's Theology, which ap- peared to have come forth under the sanction and au. thority of Dr. Murray, and which contained, in his (the Bishop of Exeter's) opinion, matter not fit for the ears of the Protestants of Ireland. (Hear.) The Right Rev. Prelate then alluded to the conversion of the Rev. Mr Nolan from the errors of the Church of Home, in February last, on which occasion he stated that he had left a rich and pampered Church. In a letter addressed to a Roman Catholic clergyman, the Rev. Mr Nolan asserted that Dens's Theology was a regular text.book at Maynooth college. The Right Rev. Prelate contended that Dr. Murray was not a proper person to hold office as a Commissioner of Edu- cation, and concluded by presenting a petition from a clergyman, who hatOormerly resided in Ireland, but who had been o'uligeWo fly to England in consequence of the persecutions to which he had been exposed. Lord MELBOURNE condemned the speech just delivered by the Right Rev. Prelate, us being calcu- lated rather to excite angry feelings than to promote concord between man and man. The Duke of WELLINGTON thought the Pro- testant people of Ireland had great reason to complain of want of protection from the Government for their persons and property. The Archbishop of CANTERBURY said, if it were true that the Romish Church repudiated the objectionable tenets with which they were charged, how was it that they were not expunged from the list of books published under authority ? The persecu- tion of the Protestants in Ireland at the present day, partook very much of the character of that waged against the primitive Christians; it was not so much by the acts as by the connivance of the Governmeut. (Hear.) Lord DUNCANNON denied that his Majesty's Government had not given the Protestants of Ireland the same protection as they had given the Catholics of that country. Lord ASHBURTON said, if the Protestant Church were now to be sacrificed in 800 parishes of Ireland, and they were to be abandoned to the spiritual in- struction of the Roman Catho'ics, it-was important to inquire into the nature of that religion. The Marquis of LANSDOWN F. insisted that the Government gave equal protection to all. The petition was then laid on the table. HOUSE OF COMMONS—THURSDAY. The Weights and Nit-astirei4 Bill was committed. RIGHTS OF FRKEMF.N Mr S. LUSHINGTON asked whether it was in- tended to introduce a clause into the Municipal Cor- poration Bill to preserve to existing freemen their political rights? Lord J. RUSSELL answered in the negative. Such a clause was unnecessary, as the Bill took away no rights from existing freemen. Those who had them would continue to enjoy them. Mr W. MILES moved an address to his Majesty, for returns respecting the boundaries of certain bo- rough's.—Ordered. Mr HOPE presented a petition from 300 freemen of Gloucester, against the violation of their rights. M U N ICT PAL REFORM RIT.L. Oil Lord J. RUSSELL's intimating his intention to propose the recommitment of this Bill. Sir R. VYVYAN sairl, this most important Bill had now been read twice, and had gone through Commit- tee, and was now about to be reported without any argument either in defence of the principle ct the Bill or against it. (Cheers.) He could inform new Members that, after ten years' experience, he had never witnessed a Bill of so much importance go into Committee without the principle being discussed. It was his intention to bring the wholc question before the House and the country, and he would shew tbat the House was about to violate a great principle of the Cans: it it I ion, and to take away privileges hitherto considered sacred. He would avail himself of an occasion to bring the whole discission before the House upon the presentation of a petition from 2,000 of the freemen of Bristol. Lord J. RLSSKLL, when he brought forward the Bill, stated the grounds upon which he rested his claims to support. He proposed the second reading in the mauner in which it was usually done. (Hear.) It was not his fault if he did not answer the objections made on that occasion, for no objections were made. Undoubtedly any hon. member had a right in any stage of the Biil he chose to state all his objections to it;as he had not heard those objections, he would not be expected to have answered them. (Cheers and laughter.) Co1. SIBTIIORPE was similarly situated with the hon. baronet. The noble lord was bringing and vushmg forward one of the most important of Bills -without the House being in possession of any know- ledge of what the real principles of it were, brought toi ward as it had been. There had been three editions of it pi inted, the last of which had only been put into the hands of hall. members liiat morning; in fact his own copy was not yet dry. (Laughter.) Then how was it that they could have made up their minds, Upon uch short notice, and without diseussing the principles ot the Bill r The noble lord, upon the sug- gestion of the hon. member for Middlesex, had sub silenho shoved (with an appropriate gesture) into the Bill, five new clauses of which the House had never before heard. (Loud laughter.) These clauses could not possibly be understood by the House, and he very much doubted whether they were understood by the bench opposite. (Continued laughter.) tiow, in ilie name of common sense, was the House to tie railed upon now to agree to the principles of the Bill ? They could not possibly have examined minutely into the principles. When members rose upon his side of the House, their voices were drowned in the conversation of the benches opposite—of hon. members opposite, who came there for no other purpose than to support the noble lord (cheers) that was the only object for which they were there. (Loud arid reiterated cheer- ing.) He put it to the House and the country, and he wauted it to go forth to the world, whether this was the| proper manner of legislating ? (Hear.) He would ell the noble lord that however he might manoeuvre ill that House, there would be justice done to litc. coontry in another. They called upon this House to pass a most important measure upon the suggestion of the noble lord. Be cautioned the House most. par- ticularly not to trust to the suggestions of the noble ori k and not to put any faith upon the promise of a iscussion ou the third reading. (Laughter.) That l'l* I 'hroughout conducted with the same po- litIcal snbtft'ty aud hypocrisy which bad characterised otnerliills. (Cheers.) NR °F PO"TICAI, LADIFS. r BERKELEY brought forward his motion for thp a portion of the strangers' gallery to the accommodation of ladies.

RUSSELL said he had J.Sf, rsprPssed bi-, reasons fur opposing this aineiidmlnt, and it wa- not necessary to repeat them. Sir R. FEEL said tU b|elor this clause did not a ter the Reform Act, was guilty rf the grossest sophistry and fallacy. The noble lord should move for leave to amend the Reform Act and not attempt a great change in an underhand way' The Reform Bill the noble lord declared should be final, and shoum preserve the rights of freemen. The present course ot proceeding was a fine specimen of pe'rpetuity. (Loud cheers.) He thought that his (Sir R. Peel's) prophecy, that the first attempt at al- teration in the Reform Bill would couie fiom its authors, had now been fulfilled. (Cheers.) Their present proceeding must shake, if not totally destroy, the confidcnce of ihi! country in noble lord and his colleagues. He thought that ft man who had served seven years' apprenticeship had given as good a test of character as a man who had resided three years in a town. The calial of such it man was not, un- doubtedly, in money he had accumulated, but the skill he had acquired gave as good a test of solvency as one who had paid rates for three years. (Hear.) Captain BERKELEY argued that they had no more right to meddle with the rights of freemen than they would have in the Irish Tithe Bill, to cut down livings, the property of private individuals. After some discussion, the Committee divided-for the clause, '234; against ito 262; majority against M r Praetl's motion, 28 Mr J. PONSONBY moved, as an amendment, the insertion of a provision, preserving "to the children of freemen and persons now serving apprenticeships their corporate rights. This jjroposition also gave rise to a long discussioll wherf the Committee again divided—for the amendment, 203; against it, 234; majority against the amendment, 31. Several other divisions took place upon amendments proposed by members of the opposition, but they were negatived. At two o'cloek the Chair mar. reported progress and the House adjourned. HOUSE OF LORDS-FRIDAY. The Vice Chancellor (Sir L. Shadweil) presided for the first time under the Commission appointing him Deputy Speaker in the absence of Lord Denman. The Learned Judge was congratulated by Viscount Melbourne, the Marquis of Lansdownc, and other Peers, as they entered. Lord BROUGHAM intimated his intention to oppose any arrangement for the accommodation of ladies in the new House of Lords. Lord AUCKLAND stated, in reply to a question by Lord Ashbnrton, that it was not the intention of Government to introduce any ineastii-e on ilietitiiber Duties during the present session. A conversation arose respecting the protests of Sir F. Pa'grave and Mr flogg as Corporation Com- missioners and Viscount MELBOURNE said, that he did not in- tend to lay Mr Hogg's protest and report on the table, as that. gellllcman was not authorised to make a separate report. The Marquis of YVESTMEATH moved for a return of the number of persous committed in Ireland for crimes, distinguishing their religion, with a view of shewing The moral influence of the Protestant Church upou the minds of its professors. The Duke of RICHMOND and other Peers desribed the motion as invidious and impracticable, and it was withdrawn. The Certiorari Bill WAS read a second time. Their lordships then adjourned. HOUSE OF ('O.IliNIONS-rft I DAY. Mr Lee", the new Member for Oldham, took his seat. Mr DUNCONIBI-, presented a petition from the Rev. Mr Dupre, Master of the Grammar School of Bnikhemsted, defending himself from the charges preferred against him. On the motion for going into Committee on the Municipal Corporation Bill, Mr HUME read a letfer he had received regarding the proceedings of Orange Lodges at Belfast, referring to outrages lately committed in that town, in which the hon. member said a person of high rank was im- plicated. He wished to have the evidence taken by the Select Committee on Orange Lodges in the army laid before the House. The hon. member eventually postponed his motion tiutil Monday. The House then went into Committee on the motion of Lord John Russell, and the remaining clauses, after a desultory discussion, were agreed to. The House then resumed, the report was received and agreed to, and the Bill ordered to be read a third timeon Monday. HOUSE OF I-ORDS-MONDA-i. A ,notion was made by Lord TEYNHAM respect- ing the Poor Law riots, which his lordship, after some observations from the Marquis of Camden, Lord DUII- cannon, the Duke of Richmond,and the Marquis of Lansdowne, withdrew. A conversation of considerable interest took place on the subject oi the Municipal Corporations Bill, and the protest of Mr Hogg, which the Home Secretary had refused to receive. The second reading of the Roman Catholic Marri- ages Bill was postponed, on the motion of the Marquis of CLANRICA llDE, until next Monday. His lord- ship made some allusions to the case of Mr M'Der- mott, one of the Commissioners of Education in Ire- land, which called forth a reply from the Bishop of Exeter. In answer to a qnestion from Lord GIeng*ll, Lord MELBOURNE said that the Irish Coercion Bill was only introduced in consequence of various acts of disturbance and outrage in different parts of Ireland in the years 1831 and 1832. The stave of things had been iii-conseqiieuce much improved, and it was therefore not thought necessary by the Govern- ment to renew the measure in all its details. III the years 1831 and 1832 q, Committee of the House of Commons was required to report upon the most effec- tual means of suppressing outrage in the Queen's County, and the measures recommended by that Com- mittee it was ititetitied to introduce. The Seamen Enlistment Bill was read a second time. The report of the Commission of Inquiry into the Post Office was brought up. The House adjourned at ten minutes past seven. HOUSE OF COMMONS—MONDAY. MI.W. PA PI EN stated that, in consequence of what had taken place on Friday ni"ht respecting Orange Lodges ln-Ireland and the army, he had been directed bv the Committee to move that they report on certain parts of the evidence, and that the minutes of the evidence should be laid on ihe table of the House. 1 here were other portions of the evidence of the evidence should be laid on ihe table of the House. 1 here were other portions of the evidence which were as yet unfit for publication. Mr Sergeant JACKSON said that he was authorised to contradict the. insinuation which had hfeen thrown out, that the Duke of Cumberland had ever-issued any warrants for the formation of O.ange Lodges in the army for, u> the only case in which his Royal .High- ness had been applied to, he refused to sanction the application unless they could procure the consent of the Commander-in-Chief at the Horse Guards. Mr Jackson did uot deny that certain warrants had been signed by his Royal Highness as Grand, Muster, before t, Orange Lodges had been prohibited by the House. but he had never issued or effused them to be issued since and if they had been circulated it was done without his consent and without his knowledge. The motions on the paper relative to the union of the Scotch Universities were postponed till next session. The Municipal Corporations Bill was read a third time and passed, after all animated debate which terminated without a division. On the order of the day for eroing iuto Committee ou the Stafford Disfranchisement Bill, Mr W. S. O'BRIEN moved, as a„ instruciion. I- Tiiit the privilege oi sending two Members to Par- liament be transfeired from the borough of Stafford to the county of Cork." On a division the motion was rejected by a majority of 159 against 19. Mr E. BULLER ALSO moved That A Select Com- mittee be a p pom led to inquire into the bribery and corruption which have prevailed at elections presentatives for the borough of Stafford, mrto ieport the result ot the* inquiries to the House that it be all instruction to the Committee thit thev do report, IN the FIRST place the result of their inquiries as to bribery and C< rrupiion I„ nLE late election On a division the motion was rejected by a majority ef 98 against W. The then went into CoMniiitee, btit did not get through the prcamble when the Chairman reported progress. The Postage Bill was read a third tiME. The House adjourned at a quarter past one. HOUSE OF LORDS-TUBSDAY The Royal Assent was given by Commission to several Bilb. The Municipal Corporations Reform Bill was brought up from the Commons, and read A first time. The second reading is fixed for next Tnesday. The Ecclesiastical Revenues Bill was committed 'profound, and on the motion of the Archbishop of ('anterbury two clausef; were added to the Bill, which will be further considered oil Fi-iday next. HOUSE OF COMMONS—TuE.t)AY. The ballot was taken for the appointment of the I Ejection Committee against the return for Hull. Numerous petitions against the Irish Church Bill were presented. Notice* of motion were given (or this day for the release of Messrs Sparrow and Clipperion, the two re- maining prigouers in Newgate, on accoupt of the Ipswish election. Mr PRAED gave notice of a motion for this day to allow Counsel to be heard at the bar of the House in reapect to the borough of Great Yarmouth. On the Order of the Day for the House going- into Committee on the Church of Ireland Bill, Sir R. PEEL brought forward his motion for an instruction to the Coll,lilittee,to divide the Bill into two parts, in order that a separate consideration might be given to the question of tithes, and of the appropri- ation of the revenues of the Irish Church. The debate lasted the whole of the eveuing. Au adjournment was moved by Mr Hume, and the House .1c. broke up at a quarter before one. HOUSE OF LORDS-WEDNESDAY, The business in the House of Lords last nigljt was unimportant. The Vice Chancellor took his scat ou the woolsack at five o'clock. Several petitions were received in favour of and against the Corporation Reform Bill. « The Merchant Seamen's Bill went through com- mittee. Several private Bills were brought up from the Commons. R Lord LUNCAWON laid on the tabte the protest of Mr Hogg, one of the Commissioner# of Municipal In- quiry. Their iordships having disposed of the business before them, adjourned at twenty miuutes before six. HOUSE OF COMMONS-WEDNESDAY. The Speaker took the chair at four o'clock. Mr TOOKE gave notice of a motion for the 30th instant, relative to the address to his Majesty, and his Majesty's answer, on the subject of granting a charter to the Loudon University. Sir A. AGN EW presented several petitions,praying for some legislative enactment to ensure the better observance oi the Sabbath. He gave notice that he should, next session, again bring the subject before the House. Mr E. TENNENT presen'ed a petition from the Chamber of Commerce at Belfast, complaining of proceedings in the Court of Admiralty, relative to the the detention of a Danish vessel which got on shore upon the coast of Ireland. Tliis was the ease alluded to by the member for Dublin, some time since. If no other person did so, he, Mr Tennent, would, early next session, call the attention of to the system pursued by the High Court of Admiralty in Ireland. MrWYNN brought up the report of the Ipwich Election Committee. The Committee reported that it appeared to them that Thomas Moore Keith aided and and abetted the procuring and continuing the absence of John Pilgrim, to prevent his giving evidence before the Committee on the petition against the return • but it did not appear to the Committee that any charge was proved against Messrs Sewell and Biake. ills- HUM E said he would, upon this report move that Mr Keith be taken into the custody 01 the Sergeant- at-Arms. ° Lord J. RUSSELL was inclined to move as an amendment that the further consideration of this sub- ject should be postponed to Friday. This suggestion was agree(] to. Sir B. VERE moved that J. E Sparrow be brought to the bar, aud reprimanded and discharged. ° Mr AG LION BY opposed the "motion he thought Mr Sparrow should be detained in custody to the end of the session. Mr HUME was of the same opinion. Dr LUSHINGTON thought the offence a verygrave, one; he was, nevertheless, in favour of discharging chtr all these persons and he would have a Bill brought in making the offence punishable before a jury. Sir R. PEEL had great doubts of the policy of that House transferring the power of punishing offellee., against its own dignity to any other tribunal. He thought by adopting such a course they would greatly weaken their own privileges, and encourage contempt of their authority. He was of opinion, however that • he six weeks' imprisonment which the petitioner had already undergone was sufficient punishment for the pieseut offence. Lord JOHN RUSELL agreed in opinion with the Right Hon. Baronet. The adoption of the course re- commended by his learned rrjend would have the ef- fect of placing the House of Commons below the Courts of Law in dignity. He thought, however, Mr Sparrow had been sufficiently punished, and would vote for his discharge. The motion was then agreed to, and it was ordered that Mr Sparrow-should attend at the bar on Thursday. Mr IHESHFIELD then moved for the discharge of Mr Ciipperton, confined for a similar offence. Mr ASON felt it his duty to oppose the motion. Sir J. WROTTESLEY also opposed the motion, and moved the adjournment of the debate until Friday. A long discussion followed, in the course of which some strong personalities passed between Lord Dar- linglon and Mr Wason. Cries of "Oi,der" and Chair/' and great confusion in the House, produced, as usual, retraction on the part of the noble lord and bon. member for Ipswich, and the public business ,s proceeded, and after some further discussion the mo- tion of Sir John Wrottesley for adjourning the debate to Friday was agreed to. On the motion of Mr HUME, t.te adjourned debate on the Irish Church Bill was resumed. The hon. member for Middlesex opposed the resolution pro posed by Sir R. Peel. Mr Gou I -ITITRN supported the motion of the ¡i¡;ht hon. baronet. ° S«i _J. GRAHAM also addressed the nousc at considerable length, and with great force and ability, iu support of the course recommended by Sir R.Peel.' Lord IIOWICK opposed the proposition for dividin the Bill. rr MrBROTHERTON moved the adjournment of the debate until this day, which was agreed to; and the other orders of the day having been disposed of, the House adjourned at one o'clock.

LATEST INTELLIGENCE LONDON, THURSDAY. The King and Queen will honor the Eaton Regatta this day with their presence, and will a!so attend the speeches on Monday, when vaca- tion commences. The Hull Election Committee met yesterday, and heard counsel for the petition, after which witnesses were examined, and one voter was struck off the majority which voted for the sitting member, leaving only a majority of four. The committee then adjourned. The Belgian papers comment on the de- mand made by the French Government, to deliver up the prisoners who have escaped from St. Pelagie. The Moniteur Beige indignantly declares titit no orders have beeji received from any foreign government on such a subject—the opposition prints maintain that, though orders have not been sent, invitations of equal effect have been made. We believe the Belginn Government will adopt the milder course, viz. of not sur- rendering the prisoners, but ordering them out of Belgium. The health of the Emperor of Austria is per- fectly re-eslabltshed, and he is about to leave Schoenbrllll to visit the family estates in Upper Silesia, and thence to Bohemia.

The Speaker took the Chair at t.welve o'clock Lambert's Divorce Bill was, 011 the motion of Mr POULTER, read a third time and passed. The amendments introduced by the Lords into the Southend Pier Bill were read and agreed to. ruBt.ic CARRIAGES (METROPOLITAN) BILL. On the motion of Mr Alderman WOOD, the House went into Committee on the Public Carriages Bill. Several clauses were agreed to without opposition. Mr ROEBUCK entreated the hou. member for the city to agree to postpone the further progress of the Bill until hext session IVII- STFIVA RT urged the same request. Mr Atdernta" WOOD said, as no objection to the principle of the Bill had been advanced in any quarter, he could not consent to delay. The next clause was then read, and a debate ensued, which terminated by Mr Alderman Wood consenting to the postponement. The CHAIRMAN then reported progress and ob- tained leave to sit again.—Adjourned.

MERTHYR TYDVIL. SATURDAY, hly 23. 135 The Irish Church Spoliation Bill was under discussion at the moment of our last accounts from London. That the majority of numbers will be for retaining this Bill, in all its unrelieved enormity, we have no doubt. The Destructives calculate their majonty at 34. We need hardly say that this argument of numbers is all that can be brought to the support of such a measure. Eloquence and truth—justice and h 11 manit y-hono II rand honesty—religion and piety-all that the Patriot, the ellator, and the Legislator should hold dear and sacred, will avail nothing, and but for the credit of the House of Commons, we should be quite indifferent to the Ministerial triumph. The speech of Sir Robert Peel leaves this majority without the shadow of an excuse on the plea of ignorance. They admit their inability to grapple with his figures;" and upon what but figures can they calculate a surplus ? They must nor? proceed in their atrocious sacri lege, on the principle of men who have gone too far to recede. Spoliation in its broad, naked and un- disguised deformity is the attempt fQr which thev are to answer. There is, however, another place where such opinions will not pass current. The Bill now under discussion will never be the law of the land. Like other mClfitated, hut unpet- petrated enormities, it will form a topic of wonder 1 to the historian-how intellects so weak, and Iwarts so vvicked should have gone so far in their path of destruction without a check.
Though the cheap and vulgar feeling of hostility to the Church of England may be sufficient in some minds to make a good Dissenter, yet we imagine something more is required out of which to form a Christian. The ingredient of uumiti- gated hatred is the most apparent quality in the Cambrian—it is the leaven which leavens the whole lump of its vituperations against the Church. Would we could discover a particle of that which constitutes a conscientious difference of Christian opinion. In a recent tirade against subscription to the Thirty-nine Articles on Matriculation, this Journal speaks of the absurdity of boys of four- teen or fifteen subscribing to the Articles." We do not term this a wilful suppression of the (ruth; hut we apply the more charitable construc- tion of utter ignorance of the subject. There is I not one in five hundred, who enters at Oxford until he is between six'een and seventeen, and the average not until between seventeen and eighteen; and if the Theological Studeut does not know enough of -the Thirty-nine Articles at this age, to subscribe to them, ex animo, as containing the doc- trines of 'he Church of England, all we can say is, that he has been badly instructed. We will, how- ever, venture to nssert, that i) we take well-edu- cated boys, of the lowest age mentioned by the Cambrian, they would give better reasons for the faith that is in them, and for their adherence to the Religion of their fathers, than niue-tenths of the Dissenters can for their separation. We mean nine-tenths of those who think themselves Christian Dissenters because they are good haters of the Church of England- We are always glad when our enemies throw off the mask-when they who mean sedition speak its language. The Morning Chronicle has set a notable example of treasonable disloyalty, and its followers are begin- ning to use more intelligible words; but vve must not mistake that for the vigour of the bow which is but the venom of the shaft. We see less of danger in these exhibitions than the manifes- tations of an expiring faction; they are but the ravings of maniacal fiiry-lile spasmodic action of muscular excitement—to be followed speedily by weakness, exhaustion, and col- lapse. Let them rail oil our revenue shall be to speak the truth of them. If the Oambrian would know what the Church of England has done for those who abuse her, let him read it in the language of one of her wisest modern cham- pions. It has rescued us,first,front Heathenism, then from Papal Idolatry and superstition it ha3 saved us from temporal as well as spiritual des- potism we owe to it our moral and intellectual character as a nation-—much of our private hap- piness—much of our public, strength—whatever should weaken it would, in the same degree, in- jure the commonweal; whatever should over- throw it. would, in sure and immediate con- sequence, bring down the goodly fabric of that Constitution, whereof it is a constituent and ne- cessary part." Such is the Church of which the uliberal Stalesmei^ of the Cambrian, lvum the Reformers haveforctdon a reluctant Sovtrtign, would depr.ve us; but we have a firm confidence that, though they may be waves to toss, they shallllot be rocks to split-their hour of subsidence is at hand.
TilANSMlBSION OF NT.WSl'Al'KKS TO THE BiUTlStf COLONICS AND FOREIGN PAttTS." It is necessary that the following regulation for the conveyance of newspapers by post, from the United Kingdom to foreign parts, should be generally known topublistiers. Some of our papers,addressed to our sub- scribers abroad, having been very recently and un- expectedly returned to us, the Post Office refusing to forward them, we applied for explanation oil the sub. ject, and a printed notice, of which the following is a copy, has been sent to us '• NOTICE.—By the Act of 4 and 5 Gul. IV. c. 41, for Regulating the conveyance of printed newspapers by post between tile Uuitcd Kindom, the British Colonies, and foreign part-, it is provided, « that no newspaper sh,ll be sent by the post under the provisions of this present Act, unless every such paper be sent wilhout a cover, or in a cover open at the sides, and that there be no words or communication printed on such paper after the same shall have been published, nor any writing or marks upon such printed paper, or the cover thereof, other than the name and address oj the person to whom it is sent, aiui so that there he no paper, or thing enclosed, or concealed, in, or with, snch printed paper, or tile cover thereof, nor any printed words or communication on the cover thereof—by which enactment, no newspaper, haviug the n,une of the sender prtnU d, 01 wntten, upon the cover, caabe forwarded by post under that Act; and it is therefore recommended to news agents and others, to make up their newpapers for the British (."louies, or foreign parts, in ewers with nothing but the address upon them of the party for whom they .are intended. otherwise they will be liable to be charged, or detained, as the case may be. GeneralPost Office. 3d Oct. 1&31 Acknowledging the high ineriis of the Post Office establishment, as all must do,and with every deference to its regulations, we think in tairucas,that the notice ought to have been duly published first, and Ihen if not cowphed with, the papers returned. The Quly reason for not forwarding our papers was simply that the envelopes were printed, and in addition to the name and address of the subscriber, had ilie words di jlcrthyr Guardiutt" also pricted. And of the existence of this regulation the provincial post master was himself ignorant, until he had applied to the General Post Office for information.
„. (Prom the Times.) Under the affected label of We call't tiffofd it, ft second phial of vitiiolic acid, though we must allow much weak- ened in its cfteet, has been poured out upon the ''A rstocracy c ot England.' by that busy nostrum dealer Isaac f'omkins, gentleman." The purpose of this person's former effusions could with some little difficulty be guessed at—they were attacks on the ilobility and gentry of Great Britain, in their characters, political and social. Thev discovered some Smartness, and more spite. This, which is now before liS, makes manifest a certain progression in the author's mind, for it is literally all spile, without even one panicle of that very frivolous accomplishment, vulgar though it V, which is usually termed "smartness." The greater portion of what Mr Isaac Tomkins putteth forth on the present occasion, is in form a repetition of his previous doings-iii its design it is a puff upon then1. However, there is :.( re and there a direct proposal to be met with, curious for its indication of the species of animals to which Isaac Tomkins belongs. It is not 12 months since this individual, who went at that period by another name, announced repeat- edly that two much had already been done in the way of altering our laws-and that thenceforth, (he then holding an office for which he was as fit as would have been that superannuated scaramouch Joe Grimaldi),-—he, we sat, Isaac Tomkins—then assured the people of "England, that as too much had lieendone already, the progress of change must be arrested. What does he say now ? Why he tells us that to complete our emancipation from the Tory yoke, which it appears has not yet been half i fleeted, the qualification "IJJIHI be lowered," the establi^hinents must be lowered all but the police, which must he prodigiously "enlarged the King's Court must be cut down, because 11 we can't afford it." The overgrown salaries and all unmerited pen- sion* must be smashed, because *'wc can't afford it;" and in yielding our full assent to this proposition, we must add, that if any quack or pretender within the realm should happen to ha'.e twitched out of the na- tional. st«rre-room, and swallowed a pension of 5.0001. per annum, for doing nothing but positive mischief, whie keeping the whole world in hot water, by a restless aud eternal gabble about the good he "meant to do," that said quack is precisely the first subject whereupon to try the experiment of the stomach pump, and see to what extent he could be forced to carry the process of disgorging.

GLAIQORGANSHIRE- GLAMORGANSHIRE SUMMER ASSIZES. (Coutinued from our last page.) could have entertained no doubt of the nature of it. If the patient had not complained of the hip, the surgeon ought to have discovered the shortening of the limb. Witness would first, after having replaced the fractured bones, and putting on splints, have com- pared the one leg with another, and endeavoured to have reduced the dislocation of the hip. It would not, in his opinion, have produced serious inflammation in this case; not so much as should prevent a surgeon from trying. If the dislocation had been overlooked for eight or nine days, witness would then try. lie might have waited, if the inflammation had been high. First inflammatory symptoms over, wc-Mldtry, from three to four weeks after the accident. T. Auction has been effected at later periods than th? Sor4n cases of fracture; would feel a crepitus, the knde and foot would, from the action of the muscles be everted, the muscles, which turned the Hmb outwards, being more powerful than those which turned it inwards. If from disease of muscles, in a case of a fracture, there was no eversion, you could turn the limb. Confined movement is distinctly a sign of dislocation. Straight splints are not proper to be used, unless you had a box to confine the leg, because the foot would turn in and out. It was not proper to put splints on without padding. A straight splint behind the leg would tend- to do harm, by pressing on the soft parts, and perhaps producing inflammation, ulceration, and mortification. The effecf. as to the union of bone, would be more harm t In cases of fracture, a surgeon should visit the patient every day. If fracture is accompanied by dislocation, more than once a day. Is not ac- quainted with the practice of tying legs together, in fracture, nor of introducing a brick. Persons with compound fracture were liable to start at night, and witness separates the limbs, because tying them toge- ther would annoy and distress the patient, and it was a great comfort to him to be able to move the sound limb, &c. It was not proper to let the patient remain. eight or nine days without seeing him. Cross-examined-Crepitus, or something like it, is produced, in dislocation, by extravasation of a fluid substance; but it is easily distinguishable by practical persons. Supposing a case of severe fracture and dislocation, when near the tibial arteries, witness would have ventured to apply force above the knee. It was not likely that there could have been much inflamma- tion on the day of accident. Could not have rested if he had left a patient with an unreduced dislocation. Thinks, from what he has seen and heard, that in this case, the soft parts were not much lacerated. Not so much as be has seen them, when tram-carts have gone over the parts, and iron had been opposed to iron. An attempt at reduction might have endangered the limb. Re-examined by Mr JfLmes-Does not think, in this case, it would have produced inflammation. In case of fracture, the head of the os femoris does not rest upon the dorsum ilii, nor anything like it. By Mr Vaughan Williams—There would be no de- posit of ossific matter. Mr Martin, re-examined—Would not send an assist- ant who was a member of the College of Surgeons, not in a case like Regan's. Mr Davis, re-eximitied-Does not think it unprofes- sional to send assistant, but it would be, not to see the pat ient for four days. David Hopkins—Is a surgeon at Llandaff, and me mber of the college. He has not set up in the neighbourhood of the defendant. Has examined plaintiff. Felt the thigh bone on the dorsum ilii. Reduction may be effected within six or eight weeks. Has swen one reduced in six weeks. The reduction was of so much importance that he would risk the lower limb. ff the lower limb were amputated the plaintiff woul.d work better than he could with unreduced dislocation. Would see the pa- tient every day. In compound fracture, splints are bent, with holes, &c. They were better than straight ones. A splint under the leg would do no good. Witness never tied one leg to another. Never put a brick be- tween the legs. Sometimes put pads. Leaving a splint under the leg, to cause ulceration, was neglect. The symptoms in plaintiffs case was distinguishable. The shortness of the liinb must have told them there was something wrong above. A surgeon could have felt the head of the thigh bone; but if the patient were muscular, not so easily. Cross-examined—It would be a matter of discretion with a surgeon to attempt reduction. Fracture boxes were boxes with the top off and ends out, the leg was bandaged and swathed and put into the box. Re-examined—There is no one symptom to make him think the case was one of fracture. In fracture- boxes there was padding. The box did not touch the leg. By a Juror-Plaintiffs leg was now inetlrable. By another of the Jury—As a professional man of long standing, did witness attribute want of skill and negligence ? His Lordship said that was too home a qnestion. It was the question which his Lordship would have to put to the Jury. (Laughter.) This was the plaintiff's case. Mr Vaughan Williams replied—Notwithstanding the mirth which the last question had excited, he could not help feeling that this case was a most painful one for the plaintiff, the defendant, and for Mr Martin. He fully agreed wi!h his learned friend, Mr James, in his eulogium on the medical lwofessioii-it was no more than that profession deserved-hut unfortunately there were a class of persons in that profession, who, in a prurient anxiety for their own success, entertained un- charitable feelings towards those who interfered with the success they wished themselves. In that class he (Mr Williams) included Martin. He charged Martin with having inflamed the mind of Regan and his wit- ness, Ann Jones, by using unfair means. His learned friend had described the defendant as the opulent incumbent of a Medical Benefice." But Martin was in fact the brother of the agent of Penydarran Works, and a candidate for the Medical Bcnifice so well described by his learned friend. His client, Mr George Russell, might have evaded the case on a point of law. In the declaration it was stated that the charge against him was not with having violated his duty towards the plaintiff, but towards his em- ployers, the Penydarran Company. But his client scorned to take advantage of a point of law. I Ie would meet the case fully. His learned friend (Mr James) had, in his very eloquent address, used very strong lan- guage. He certainly was bound to admit that he ad- mired that address, and the good taste displayed by his learned friend throughout, excepting when he charged his client with gross want of skill afld 11egligenee. (Mr James said, he believed he said "a want of ordinary skill.") Mr Williams believed he was right in the words. However, the Jury would not give the plain- tiff damages for his suffering, for he would have endured these had he been under Sir Astley Cooper himsejf. He thought that he should prove to the Jury there was n(} case for them, and he thought he could not only prove the first charge false, but the second also. The learned gentlemen gave an outline of his client's case and called- Edward Russell, examined by Mr Powell—Has been assistant to George Russell nearly fifteen years. In October last, was called to attend plaintiff. It was about six o'clock n the evening. Found him in bed w ith a compound fracture. The 1 i mb ni ueh crushed and distorted—considerable hemorrhage. There was much swelling about the hip. Removed three pieces of bone from the fracture, and applied three sutures. Sutures are ligatures. lie means he sewed up three wounds. He either washed the wound, or got it washed. The apprentice (Cox) accompanied him. Cox applied some plaister to the wound. The state of the limb below the knee prevented him from disturbing the limb above. Saw Regan next day. Gave him a cold application. Saw he was going on well. Ordered fomentation and poultices to the hip on the night of the accident. Did not say to Ann Jones, there was no- thing the matter. There was swelling and tumefaction and he could not ascertain what was the matter. Said swelling prevented him. Did not remove the bandages next day. Ordered cold applications to be applied between the splints in front of the leg. There was an opening at the apex of each angle. Fomentations were to be applied outside the bandages and between the splints. On second day, attended at ten in the morning, and again the same evening. Attended on the third day. Did not remove the bandages. They were stiff with blood. Ordered warm fomentations and poul- tices. Called next morning. Cox %xis with him- Took off bandages and dressed the le^-B<»tirtd not see plaintiff after that. Plaintiff was diss-.Uisfied with witness, and preferred Mr Scale. No message was brought to witness by Ann Jones, on second or third day, nor on either of the four days. Never saw her at his house. Had no message through his servant frOO3 her, that he recollects. Ann Jones did not converse with him on the tram-road. Cross-examined by Mr James—Received a message to go down to Regan—not from Ann Jones, but Co*- Can't say how many patients were under his cafe a that time. Perhaps there were eight or ten. Can't say who they were positively. He visited eight or tco- Can't name at\y one. Has a book, in which he takes t"
