THERE is no question now agitating the public mind in which the spirit of party should less in- trude than the reform of the Pooi Laws. It should be discussed with a temper and modera- tion due to the magnitude of the interests it involves, and without reference to any political section by which its present condition was sug- gested. A very able article in the last number of the Edinburgh Review has, we think, satisfactorily proved that the early legislation with regard to the poor was in the highest degree oppressive. That from the Acts of Edward III. to those of Elizabeth, the poor laws were only parts of a systematic attempt to restore villanage, to confine labourers to their parishes, to regulate the price of their labour, to punish the assertion of their free agency, and to render them as effectually ascripti glebce as the Polish serfs. To these laws the labourers dict not very readily submit, and the English Statute book is disgraced by enactments, inflicting punishments of the most barbarous kind on the refractory. Then came the Acts of Elizabeth, making, it is true, a kindly provision for the impotent poor, but mercilessly directed against the able bodied, and making no provision for the industrious who were willing and able to labour, but could not procure work. These acts gave, for the first time, Justices the power of taxing at their discretion those who refused to contribute to the relief of the impotent, and to supply work to the able bodied. From the time of Elizabeth to the passing of the Poor Law Amendment bill, the acts of the Legislature seem to have been directed to the relaxation of the rigour of previous laws, but the moral condition of the labourer was not improved,—he was con- fined to his parish, maintained according to his wants, not to the value of his services, restrained from misconduct by no fear of loss, and therefore stimulated to activity and industry by no hope of reward. The workhouse system was contained in a clause of the 9th Geo. I., enabling the over- seers, with the consent of the inhabitants, to purchase or hire a house, and to keep and main- tain therein any poor of the parish desiring relief, and enacting that no poor who refused to be lodged and kept in such houses, should be enti- tled to ask or receive parochial relief. This is the foundation of the present Poor Law bill-and had the clause of the 9th Geo. I., which we have quoted, been carried out in the spirit of its enactment, or with the success which attended the first years of its experiment, we question if the more recent laws would have been necessary. —"Theory" says the Bishop of Llandaff, "never was verified so promptly and unequivocally by practice as in the early declension of these institutions, (poor houses) and in their utter in. efficiency when left to themselves, or which is nearly the same thing to any body of rulers, how- ever wisely framed." We have only to recall to thememoryof our readers the state and condition of the labouring poor, and the amount of the rates that was necessary to maintain them, to show the necessity for a revision of the law. The former were a generation of pauperised labourers," and the latter had grown to the enormous annual sum of nearly seven millions. A commission was appointed to enquire, and the Poor Law Amendment Act was the consequence. That law we think is still but an experiment, and as such, if it be vigorously watched so ought it 190 to be fairly tried. Its operation in particular cases may be severe, and the jealousy of entrust- ing guardians with a discretionary administration may be pushed too far-yet upon the whole this is expedient. Too great a relaxation of principles would replunge the country into, pauperism. The danger of making expeptions, in what may seem particular cases, is, that such exceptions would soon form the rule. If for example an employer should from any cause deduct two shillings a week from the wages of his labourer, and send him to a Board of Guardians fQ, Gufc-.door relief, their compliance would be established as a prin- ciple, the example would spread, and the old detestable plan of pauperising labourers by part payment in wages and part in rates would be restored. It is always with deep regret. that we see the admixture of politics ir^ the, discussion, of this great legislative measure. It was, we admit, the measure of a Whig Administration, but it had the support an,d approbation of all the leading members of the present Cabinet, AND Q them devolves a full share- of the responsibility. I Its continuance is now limited to a year, and it I will undergo a strict investigation in the enatisg Session of Parliament,—what we demand for it t is a clear stage. We can forgite the mistaken views of a sincere but falsa humanity, but we j deprecate the intrusion of motives sometimes political and often factious. Let the law be tried, and stand or fall on its own merits. That it is capable of amendment there is but little dispute. If it be found to have fulfilled one of its great purposes the elevation of the moral character of the labouring classes, more especially in the agricultural districts, let it have the praise. If it j have pressed with severity on the suffering poor, 1 -if if have dealt pitilessly with human frailty, and urged suffering into crime and despair,—if.it j has too much disregarded the cry of the widotf and the orphan let it bear the blame. Let us all ) conspire in the spirit of kindness towards those for whose benefit it is intended, to remedy its J defects, and to perfect its purposes for good. We are sincerely of opinion that the internal peace and tranquillity of the country are involved in the issue.
THE INSURRECTION ]IN SPA, N.rhe Gallant Gen- eral Diego Leon has been executed.—A powerful Pensatioiv has been created by the publication of an official document addres-ed by NI. Olaziigd, file Span- ish Minister in Paris, to the C.iptain General ot the Basque province8, detailing the interview which he had with QueenChrUtiua at Paris, Oil the 10th iullt., according to tliis despatch, Queen Christina herself disowns O'Donnell and his unhappy dupes M. O:o:t,'a first details some questions which he put to the ex-Regent, to which Her Majesty replied "Ihat it was not iruHth.it she had appointed General O'Don- nell Viceroy of Navarre or Captain General of Bas- que provinces; that it was not true she had given to him,'or toothers any authority whatever, nnd said it would have been absurd on her part to have done so, as she herself possessed none. Whatever their acts might be they Aereconitititied oil their own res- ponsibility. Her Majesty repeated these astiurances several times adding, that 'she defied any proof to the contrary." Thus fall all the accusations made against the Queen and against the French Govern- ment, who have been accused by several journals in Fiance and England, of having encouraged the late insurrection in Spain and unless Queen Christina announces officially th.1 0:1 r' Olozaga declaied was false, it must be coiisideld as aiiiheittic.-It is stated tbat Esparlero h#s sent 'n overwhelming force to attack the insurgents in the Bafcquc^iroviuces, and in Navarre.

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. We are much obliged to our Correspondent at Bridgend, and shall be always glad to hear from him. A FATHER.-We think the nuisance will be done away with without the publication of his Letter.
A;. IT will be seen that the Ecclesiastical i8- j sioners have made a report with a recommenda- i tion subsequently confirmed by an order in Council for such augmentation of one hundred i poor benefices as will produce to the ¡ Incumbents the annual income of £ 150. The funds for this purpose have been obtained by the 1 suspension of sundry canonries and prebends in j Cathedrals and Collegiate Churches. That such incomes are sfnall enough the warmest advocates for clerical poverty will we think agree, more especially when we state that in each case the 1 amount of population under the pastoral charge of the Incumbent is afc least two thousand. As to the means by which this sum, less probably than four thousand a year, has been obtained, men will have different opinions. Of a plan re- commended by high Episcopal authority it becomes us to speak with deference. It is we think one of those expedients which only the cir- cumstances in which the Church is placed can excuse, for it has a manifest tendency to give a character of insecurity to endowments, and to' arrest the hand of pious benevolence. The sus- pension of Canonries and Prebends is but a gentle word for confiscation, and four thousand a year is but a small sum to raise in one hundred parishes, if the zeal of Churchmen were what it once was, and what it ought to be, nay, we be- lieve, what it is, if duly called forth and rightly directed. Wherever" says Mr. H. W. Wilber- force, speaking on this subject, Church pro- perty has been confiscated, there the people have ceased to give to the Church. Sacrilege not only absorbs the offerings of devout men of old, but prevents those of devout men in future." We have spoken of Episcopal authority for the appro- priation of Cathedral revenues to parochial pur- poses. We have some doubt on this point. Of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners the Prelates are- a minority, and one of them has publicly declared his disapprobation of the principle, and another has as openly asserted that they (the Bishops) were appointed not to consider the scheme but to direct its execution. It is better, we grant, that one hundred poor Benefices should be increased, than that a dozen Canons and Prebendaries should "'<11 live in indolence. But if Cathedral endowments have been thus perverted, and there is but little doubt of the fact, we respectfully submit, that the better plan would be to correct the abuses, to restore the efficiency, and to make these Dignan, tories what they were intended to be,phampiol18 and Defenders of the Church, and Ministers of, her daily Services. We repeat the opinion we have ventured often to express, that if the neces- sities of the Church were fairly submitted to the public, by the highest authority, that of the Bishops, there would flow into her Treasury such free-will offerings as would, we will not say pro- vide for her necessities, but greatly reduce the burthen of them, without infringing the principle or violating the sacredness of other endowments. We are persuaded that there is affection eneugh, that there is self-denial enough to do this. The confiscation of the revenues of the Church for secular uses is sacrilege their confiscation to our selfishness, and to evade our duties and obliga- tions as Churchmen, is hardly more defensible.
Vi -— THE manufacture of votes at Dowlais, by whom- soever superintended, is scandalous and disgrace- ful, and the whole machinery by which the nefarious process is carried on ought to be put down by legislative interference. We have ab- solutely upon our county register names. of parties whose houses are merely bad intentions, the walls not a foot high, and to talk of such things as property, and secured by title deeds would be as absurd as to claim a vote for a Chateau en Espagne," a Castle in the Air/ or an habitation in the Moon. They are, how- ever, not deeds without a name," and the true names for them and their contrivers are Fraud and Falsehood. Under what section of the Reform Act we ask are such enormities permitted ? where is it enacted that a house to be built for a man of straw, shall entitle the phantom to a vote ? Let it never be forgotten that these fictions are perpetrated in the tenth year of the Reform Bill and sanctioned by men who glory in the name of Reformers. That these transactions are broad palpable evasions, is manifest from the darkness in which they ^are concocted,, and fr&m mystery thrown arouncTthem. Every obstruction to the discovery and identification of the claimants is raised. We do not wish the same experiment to be made on the Davies's and Williams's, as was tried upon poor Smith, whose house, for the purpose of thinning the Pit at one of the Theatres was stated to be on fire, but we would request the Iron King" of Dowlais to offer a reward to David Davies, top of Dowlais, and another to Thomas Williams, near Dowlais Garden, if he would ascertain the extent of the litigation to which Hs benevolence would lead. The preamble of the Reform Bill runs « that it is expedient to take effectual measures for correcting divers ahuses." So far as regards this county the words should be "committing divers abuses." It will be easily supposed that the same low and dirty tactics which can fabricate votes would extend to the privation of tho legitimate voters of their franchise. And so it is. Objections the most frivolous, and notices the most vexatious, are served upon gentlemen and their tenants, and it is to be feared by the connivance and consent of a man whose rank, station, and eonnections should have taught him better. It is true that the Battle of the Constitution has been fought and wop iii the Courts of Registration, but the weapons of our warfare have been forged and tempered in fires of which these Dowlais buccaneers kaov nothing. The metal of Conservatism is trut. and it is fashioned by honesty, and our arms shall not be wrested from us by fraud, nor stolen by livery. It is impossible that votes, such as we.
