ORIGINAL POETRY. SUNDAY BEFORE EASTER. BY A CHURCHMAN. To Salem's courts the lowly Saviour went, Upon an ass's colt all meekly riding And while from some he met with scorn and chiding, Him nothing from his course of mercy bent For when the sun the temple's turrets lent New beauty,—on their tops his rays ahiding,- He thought of those whom he would fain be hiding, And wept their day of grace was well nigh spent. So many a faithful Pastor, since that day, Has mourned the crowds who wander from the fold; And. like his Master, at that sad survey. Has wept that he in vain of mercy told Still strong in faith he walks in duty's way,— The humble cheers, reproves and warns the bold. THURSDAY BEFORE EASTER. EY THE SAME. Hnil sacred eve! Let grief and love, Twin sad converse hold awbile For He who now doth Teign above, Delighting on his saints to smile, Did on this solemn night cotnmandt- When circled by that sorrowing band, Whose eves with burning tears were dim,— That ve should oft remember him. He took the bread, he blest and brake; Then unto his disciples said,- This is body, each one take And eat, so shall your souls be fed. He took the cup, gave thanks, and then Rrpea'ed his command again,— Drink ye of this, and let it be Oft-times remembrancer of me. Twas his last supper here below, Ere on the cross he bowed his head;- Ere in Gethsemane his brow With drops of blood was overspread. Then on this eve let grief and love In mournful strains their sorrow prove And let the slow and solemn hymn Tell how we oft remember him! Merthyr, 1839.
SCIENCE. SOLDERING OF LEA D.-A new method of solder. ing lead together has been invented by a M. Des- bassyns de Richemont, consisting of a portable apparatus, which he calls aerliydric pipes. From these issue the most brilliant and intense flames, which rapidly inelt the lead, and strike each part at the same time; the liquid lead may be pushed away with the flame if it should run too far, and portions of fresh lead may be applied to effect the solderhig, in case it should be impossible to borrow any from the neighbouring parts. WIRE GAUZE.—The improvements which have within the last few years been made in the manu- facture of wire gauze, have been such as to create surprise at the extent to which they have been carried. When at Newcastle-on-Tyne we witnessed the weaving of wire gauze, in which the number of interstices were 10,000 in the square inch, the gauze being made to any desired length. This, however, we nnd exceeded at the manufactory of Messrs. Gibbs, of Bristol, the number of interstices iu the square inch being 14,400—thus rendering it, we believe, the finest metal gauze yet produced.

INSURANCE AGAINST WIVD.—The destructive effects of the late storm have directed the minds of some individuals to the inquiry—why should not the means of insuring against wind as well as against fire, be provided for the public? A PAUPER, in Farrin^don union workhouse, named Mary Stanby, aged 24 years, has already had 132 needles extracted from her person, the greatest number of which has been taken from her breast.

IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OF COMMONS—WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13. The adjourned debate on the Corn Laws was re- sumed by Sir WILLIAM MOLES WORTH, who repeated some three volumes out of his own speeches, articles, pamphlets, and reviews, on the subject, or those of his friends. His arguments, such as they were. went to prove the necessity of entire commercial freedom and were ably answered by Mr Christopher, who likewise embraced the opportunity of twitting Ministers with their con- tradiction-, and opposite and evasive statement*. On the one hand, he remarked, Lord John Itussell avers that the Corn Law question has always been an open one; and, on the other, he is met by distinct denials of this having been the case. At the conclusion of the Hon. Member's speech, some thirty Members were on their legs, eager to address the House, to its great amusement, when the Speaker determined in tavour of Mr Grote, who completely "Jet the cat out of the bag," by admitting that M hea t co-tild not be imported from the Continent at a lower price than 4;)i. a quarter; on which, Lord DA IDLING TON observed, that if the last speaker was right in his estimate of 45s. as the probable price of corn per quarter under a new system, then, as the average price of the three last years had been only 48s., a faU of 3s. in 48s. was the whole relief which the consumer was to reap by all the great alterations proposed. Would a fall of 3s. a-quarter make bread cheap to the labouring classes? Mr CLAY then propounded the original discovery that it should be the aim of a wise statesman to make us as dependent as possible on foreign countries. Mr WODEHOUSE took a different course, and brought much practical knowledge to bear on the question. The Hon. Member prefaced his speech by animadverting severely upon Mr P.Thomson's avowal in the preceding night's debate, of having encouraged agitation respecting this matter, and on a former declaration of Lord Howick, that without this repeal there would be no security for the public peace. Such expressions, he stid, when uttered by men in the position of Ministers, "held out a sort of Cabinet premium for outrage." Lord HOWICK next rose, and commenced the farce of the evening. He had the honour to repre- sent the northern division of Northumberland, which was essentially an agricultural district. Honourable Members were bound, both by interest and duty, to consult the interests of their con- stituents. He advocated an alteration of the Corn Laws but, since he represented an agricultural district, erflo an alteration of the Corn Laws would be beneficial to agriculture. After this happy syllogism his Lordship talked of prices, and of fluctuations, with the valuable facility of dulness and conceit, until his wroth was aroused by manifest symptoms of impatience. His arguments were to the effect, that the advantages anticipated from the present laws by their pioposers had failed inevent; that prices, instead of having become steadier, as was originally promised, had fluctuated more widely than ever; and that it was impossible that these laws, in the day of dearth, could give the promised relief from abroad, because the foreign grower, ex- 'pecting no such casual demand, would have pre- pared no stock to meet it. But when he began to challenge the restlessness of the House, to fall foul ot Captain Forrester, whom he erroneously took to be foremost among his tormentors, and to threaten that the more he was interrupted the mor he would speak, laughter and derisive cheers greeted these little ebll11 i t ions of temper, and there remained little chance of a patient hearing for the rest of his speech. Still the House resumed its order for a time, until his Lordship proceeded to favour it with reading a number of corn averages, beginning with the year eleven hundred and odd. The force of nature could no further go." Some fifty or sixty of the Members, among whom were Sir Robert Peel and Lord Stanley, left their seats to go away and, ultimately, on the motion of Lord Worsley (solventur tabulae risu), the House ad- journed. "#. HOUSE OF LORDS—THURSDAY, MARCH 14. Two hundred and seventy two petitions against any alteration of the Corn Laws were presented by the Duke of Buckingham alone. amongsl numerous others on the same subject, chiefly, however, in favour of the existing law. In answer to the Duke of Richmond, Lord MELBOURNE promised that, if the state- ments of the fruit growers in this country were found to be correct, a Bill should be introduced to remedy the Act of last session, altering the duties on the importation of foreign fruits. Earl FITZWI LLlAM then moved, pursuant to notice, the following resoliitioi :Fhat the Act 9 George IV., c. 60, has failed of securing that steadiness in the price of grain which is essential to the best interests of the country." His Lordship began by stating that to Ireland especially the repeal of the Corn would be a great boon, but gave no reason for this more than the assertion that the Irish were more interested in having cheap bread than any other nation. (Cheap potatoes, we should have thought.) He then proved the absur- dity of these laws, by a reference to the South Sea islands. If, his Lordship argued, some centuries hence it should be discovered that these island., prohibited the importation of yams, plantains, and bread fruit from one island into the other, our des- cendants would think that these islands acted in a most extraordinary manner, and, therefore, the Corn Laws were extraordinary. He then proceeded to state that it was his firm conviction that the agriculturists suffered more from their operation than any other class of the community. The Duke of BUCKINGHAM followed, who refreshed the Noble Lord's memory by reminding him of the very different opinions he entertained on the subject some years since. The Earl of RIPON said, that the argument of the Noble Lord (Earl Fitzwilliam) had no conclu- sion; he asked for the repeal of the preient law, but suggested no remedy. If the repeal of the Corn Laws were carried, they must do away with pro- tecting duties of every kind; if one class is excluded from protection no other has a right to claim it. His Lordship then pointed out the fallacy of attri- buting the improvement of foreign manufactures and their successful competion with ours in other markets, to the operation of the said laws, when this was the evident and necessary result of five- and-twenty years of peace. How could the manu- facturing prosperity of Saxony be laid to the account of these laws, when Saxony grew no corn, and had therefore none to give us in exchange for our manufactures ? Our treaty with Austria had been boasted of, so that she received our manufactures. It came, then, to this, that Prussia was the only corn growing country from which we were shut out, and perhaps it might be found that she imposed high duties on our manufactures. -(The Duke of Cambridge.-She doei.)-If it were proved that the Corn Laws were prejudicial, he would readily forego his own interests, supposing them to clash with those ot the community, but he had heard no argu- ment which did not go to the contrary. The Duke of WELLINGTON, after a high eulo- gium on the powerful speech of his Noble Friend who had just sat down, first called on their Lord- ships to treat with anything but respect" various threats which had been held out in case of their non-compliance with what was falsely termed the popular wish. He theu clenched the question, as he ever does, when he brings his powerful mind to bear on any subject, by proving from the quotations of other countries that the "steadiness in the price of grain" desiderated in the words of the resolution before the House, was a nonentity, and quite as wise as hunting to catch a shadow. On comparing, said his Grace, the alterations of prices under these laws in this country, with the variations of the prices of corn in other parts of he world, in which there happened to be no Corn Laws (Hear, hear)—taking, for instance, Dantzic, Hamburgh, and the United States of America, where there were no Corn Laws, it would be found that the variation of the prices of corn at Dantzic, at Hamburgh, and in the United States of America, have been frequently greater than tn this country during the operation of the existing Corn Laws. The statements from which he derived these facts were available to the Noble Earl, and he would refer the Noble Earl to them, If the Noble Earl looked at the returns, he would find that he (the Duke of Wellington) was correct. Now, this went to destroy the Noble Earl's argu- ment of instability, and that, it would be seen, was the only ground of the resolution. (Hear, hear.) He, therefore, met the question with a direct negative. The Earl of RADNOR followed in a speech which elicited peals of laughter from the House. He laid down several" wise laws and modern instances amongst others, that if the arable land were thrown out of cultivation, it would not be left waste, but converted into pasture! and that if wheat were at any time not attainable in conse- quence thereof, barley, bread, butter, cheese, roast- beef and plum-pudding were no bad substitutes. The Duke of RICHMOND could not compli- ment the Noble Earl eitl>er on-Itis knowledge of farming or of cookery. If the land in the north of Scotland now producing corn or turnips, were laid down in grass, it would yield little but furze or broom in return; and he questioned the orthodoxy of plum-pudding made with barley flour I Lord MELBOURNE spoke for once like a states- man. He said that when he considered the situ. II- ation in which we stood, when he considered the various and complicated interests which he had to protect, when be considered the peculiar nature of our financial position, and found his Noble Friend proposing to leave the whole agricultwal interest without protection, he declared before God that he thought it the wildest and maddest scheme that had ever entered into the imagination of man to con- ceive. (Loud cheers.) Lord BROUGHAM complained of their Lordships having thrown out his motion for heating evidence at the bar of their house on the present subject. At this their Lordships laughed, and the Noble and Learned Lord forthwith complained of their laughter. After Earl FITZWILLIAM had replied, a Noble Lord on one of the cross-benches said, the Noble Earl who had just sat down had shown himself a ignorant about Ireland as he had done about every thing else of whioh he-had spoken. (Laughter.) The House then divided, when the numbers were —Contents, 24; Not contents, 224. Majority against the motion, 200. .1'### HOUSE OF COMMONS-THURSDAY, MARCH 14 Mr Bruen took the oaths and his seat for the borough of Carlow. A new writ was ordered for Leicester, in the room of Mr Duckworth, appointed a Matter in Chancery. To questions relating to the C.wadas, it was re- plied, the Government could introduce no measure until after Faster, and that no further information could be given respecting the executions, as from some unexplained cause the Great JVeitem had not brought any Governme&espatelie-, but that those in command in the Cana" had received the urgent injunction* of the Government not to sanction elecu. tions beyond the severest necessity. The adjourned debate on the Corn Laws was then resumed. Lord WORSLEY began it by stating that the Labourers in his part of the country, Lincoln- shire,were perfectly satisfied with the existing state of things, and were receiving from 10s. to 15. a-week; so much for this point of the argument against the Corn Laws. He then showed, by a variety of statin- tical returns, that the fluctuations in the prices of wheat abroad was as great, if not greater, than they have been at home. Mr E. TENNENT argued the question mainly with reference to Ireland, whose agriculture, he said, had made great progress under the existing system, and promised ere long to render England wholly in- dependent of foreign countries for her supply of corn. Prosperity to Ireland would produce tran- quility for England; but a repeal of these laws wonld retard that blessing by checking the improve- ments already in operation, and by preventing the reclamation of the bogs and wastes. The question of repeal was important, indeed, to England but to Ireland it was life or death. Sir H. PARNELL explained away his previous opinions, and having increased in wisdom, opined that a repeal of the Corn Laws was essenti <1. Lord MAIDSTONE taunted the Government with their trimming plan of making all great questions open questions. Mr WARD a opinion on the subject had under- gone the greatest possible changes, the last and newest being in favour of the abrogation of the laws. The Hon. Mem. compared the situation of the lauded proprietory of this country to that of the French before the revolution, and is considerate enough to feel "the greatest alarm" for their safety. Sir J. GRAHAM observed, how critical a ta«k it is to make a change in laws that regnlate food-a change which can hardly be proposed without an ex- citement vastly unfavourable to the deliberation re- quired by the importance of the subject. The in- flammatory strain of the last speaker, and his tone of intimidation illustrated this. The landlords, men honourable, reasonable, open to argument, would not be found ready to submit to fear. He then humo- rously illustrated the perplexed and bewildered state of the present Administration by observing that with a slight alteration, what Pope had said of the human mind might be equally said of the present Admini- stration :—"A mighty maze, but all without a plan (Laughter.) They had not yet been told whether Minister* proposed to advocate a fixed duty; or, if they so intended, had they been informed of ths amount? (Cheers.) He should be gl.id to know the real vievfSof the Repealers on the subject of prices. Sometimes they argued that the landed interest would be no losers, for that prices wouid rise. Such a rise would hardly suit them, for it would raise wages and reduce profits. He apprehended that what they really sought was to reduce prices; aud if so, they sought eventually to reduce wages. But to reduce wages would he not only to diminish the comforts, but to degrade the habits and the character, of the labourers. He would rely titt the authority of Mr Canning and Mr Huskisson for the principle of the present laws; and as to their practical working, he woul,1 observe, that in this very year-a year of scarcity-hose laws had brought in 2,500,000 quarters of corn, and that up to the last Saturday the prices had been lowered about twenty per cent. (Hear.) Adverting then in a masterly manner to the manifold burthens which press on the landed interest, he put the question in a new and striking light by warning the House that any change in the laws would produce the same disastrous effects in Eng- land, which it bad been foretold would follow, aud which have followed the law of Adjustment in Ire- land. He then drew an eloquent and affecting pic. ture of the alteration which would follow in the condition of the labourer, if dismissed to seek new occupations by the land beillgthrown out of employ. What change more cruel could despotism itself inflict than a change from the ineense-breathing morn" to a painful and grievous obedience to the sad sound of the factory bell-the relinquishment of the thatched cottage, the blooming garden, and the village green fot the foul garret, or the dark cellar of the crowded city—the enjoyment of the rural walk of the innocent rustic Sabbath for the de- bauchery, the temptations, the pestilence, the sor- rows, and the sins of a congregated multitude ? (Cheers ) Lord J. RUSSELL advocated a moderate fixed duty. A scene of disorder subsequently ensued on Mr Milnes vainly attempting to gain a hearing-stich scenes, indeed are familiar to the Reformed House of Commons—and, after a futile rebuke from the Speaker, the House adjourned. .6>1"# HOUSE OF LORDS-FRIDAY, MARCH 15. The Royal assent was given by Commission to the Transfer of Aids Bill and the Poor Relief (Ire- land) Art Amendment Bill. Among a number of petitions presented on mis- cellaneol's subjects, was one by Lord Brougham, purporting to come from 43,000 persons at Glasgow, and praying for the total repeal of the Corn Laws. The Noble and Learned L,rd then moved, pursuant to notice, "That this House doresolve itselr into a Committee of the whole House to take into consider- ation the Acts regulating the importation of foreign Corn." His Lordship simply referred to his speech of the preceding night for the arguments in favour of his motion. Lord MELBOURNE could recollect nothing that should alter their Lordships' decision; and, no discussion having fo )owed, the House at once divided-For the motion, 7; against it, 61; ma- jority against the motion, 51. — Their Lordships then adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS—FRIDAY, MARCH 15. A great number of petitious were presented, chiefly in favour of the Corn Laws. After some preliminary business had been disposed Sir STRAFFORD CAVNII^inquired what in- formation Government had received from America, on :he subject of the late occurrences connected with the question of the disputed boundary between the state of Maine and the British possessions ? Lord PALMERS TON said that no details had reached him, but that the negociuiions on the sub- ject were still in progress. In answer to Sir George Clerk, Lord J. RUSSELL stated that he intended to propose the postponement till Monday se'nnight, of the Supreme Court (Scotland) and Prisons (Scotland) Bill. The adjourned debate on the Corn Law question was then resumed. The earlier speakers were Mr Hume, Mr Mark Phillips, and Mr T. B. Hobhouse, in favour of the motion, or, in other words, against the Corn Law. Those in favour of the agricultural interests of the country, were Colonel Wood and Mr Handley. Sir R. PEEL followed Mr Hobhouse. The Right Hun. Baronet took a view of the arguments that had been urged against the Corn Laws, and answered them all in a triumphant manner. That there was no foundation for the alleged distress of the manu- facturers, he showed by the increase in the export, even of manufactured go() ds as shown by official returns; while he left the state of the working classes, employed in the manufactures, to be de- duced from the great advance in the amount of de.. posits lodged in the savings' banks of Liverpool, Nottingham, Leicester, Birmingham, Glasgow, and Manchester. When the Right Honourable Daronet sat down, Mr BROTH ERTON sHill a few words; hut such was evidently the feeling of the House in favour of concluding the debate, that he could only be heard for a short time. oe"7¡.¡- r-f :r'- Air FiELDEN moved the adjournment till Mon- day, and Mr Ewart till Tuesday. Both morioil." were successively the subject of divisions, and both were negatived by largo majorities; the first by 173 fo 61, ;ind the Litter by 373 to 53. Mr t IELDEN then moved the adjournment till Wednesday, and Mr BLACKSTONE proposed, as an amendment, that the question should be adjourned till that day six months. This brought Hni. Members to their senses, and after such a scene of confusion as one lines occasionally witness in the reformed H°u-e of Commons, the two motions were withdrawn, and the resumpUpn of the debate was fixed for Monday, on the suggestion of the Chancellor of the Exch-quer that certain votes in the Army Estimates, which were most important for the public service, should be first passed, the discussion on them to be reserved for a future day. It was agreed, therefore, that, immediately after these two votes shall have been taken, the Corn Law debate shou!d he resumed; and at three o'clock the House at length adjourned. HOUSE OF LORDS-MONDAY, MARCH 18. Lord WESTMEATll reminded their Lordships, that on a tormer evening he had stated that a man named Cook, who had been convicted at Mullingar assizes of a most brutal assault, and sentenced to 15 months' imprisonment, had been liberated, after undergoing part of his punishment, without finding bail and that upon his making this statement, Lord Normanby had very roundly contradicted him, asserting that bail had been required. Now, he had made further inquiries upon the subject, and found that the statement he had made was strictly correct, and that the man had been liberated with- out bail. Lord NORMANBY replied, that if bail had not been taken in this case, it must have been through inadvertence, for that he had certainly directed that bail should be required'. Lord MF.LBOURN E-stated, In answer to a ques- tion from Lord Aberdeen, that all the papers giving information relative to the war in which we are engaged in the East would be laid before the House. Lord NORMANBY inquired of Lord Roden in what shape he intended to submit his motion on the state of Ireland, which stood for Ttitirsday ? Lotd RODEN answered, that he meant to move for a committee of inquiry with respect to the com- mission of crime in Ireland. Lord MELBOURNE stated, in answer to a ques- tion from Lord Aberdeen, that the Government had not, at the present moment, come to any determina- tion relative to a further endow ment of the church of Scotland. Among the petitions presented there was one against the New Poor Law, which, gave rise to a short discussion. HOUSE OF COMMONS—MONDAY, MARCH 18. Lord JOHN RUSSELL stated, in answer to a question from Mr Hawe«, that he did not intend to proceed with the Metropolitan Police Bills before Easter, but that they would be proceeded with during the present session. Mr T. DUNCOMBE begged to ask a question of the Noble Secretary for the Home Department respecting a certain order issued by the Poor Law Commissioners. That order directed that the officers of the union should act as returning officers at the Election of Guardians, instead of Barristers being employed for that purpose. He wished to know whether that order had been submitted to the Noble Lord before it was put into operation? Lord J. RUSSELL thought that the order al- luded to was not a general order it had been only directed to certain parishes. Mr T. DUNCOMBE wished to know if he was to understand that the order had not been submitted to tl)e Noble l,or(i ? Lord J. RUSSELL said, a question had been submitted to him as to the propriety of making an alteration in the Election 01 Guardians with a view to diminish the expenet but he did not think the order had been formally submitted to him. Mr T. DUNCOMBE qtid, the question was of importance, because there was a strong feeling abroad that the elections would be illegal tinle-is the order, as a general order, was submitted to the Noble Lord 40 days before it was acted upon. Ac- cording to the act, all orders were general which were addressed to more than one Union, and the- order in question had been addressed to40 or 50. If be understood that the order had not been suh- mitted to the Noble Lord, he should think it his duty to call the attention of the law officers of the Crown to the subject. Lord J. RUSSELL said that the Poor Law Com- missioners had issued the order firrt to one Union and then to another; but that circumstance did not, he believed, render the order a general one. Lord J. RUSSELL wished to state the arrange- ment which he proposed to make respecting the business of the House. He proposed that there should be no discussion that evening on the army estimates, but that those estimates should come on oil Friday next, and that the army and navy esti- mates should be taken on the Monday following. He did not intend to bring on any bill requiring discussion before Easter. The Factory Bill he pro- posed to take oil the Friday after Easter, and the Ecclesiastical Duties and Revenues Bill on Monday, the 15ih of Aprih Sir R. PEEL expressed a hope that the legislative measure respecting the government of Canada would be brought torward iu the course of the present session. He wished to i npress upon the Government the absolute necessity of their directing their atten- tion to that subject. The House having gone into committee of supply, several votes connected with the Army Estimates were agreed to without discussion. The adjourned debate on the Coru Laws was then resumed. It was commenced by Mr FIELDEN, who, in an almost inaudible voice, contended for a repeal. Mr S. O'BRIEN was desirous of a fixed duty, which he wished to settle at 12s. per quarter. Sir J. TY I IFLL said there had been, in his judg- ment, no censure on the Reform Bill so severe as the proposal of the manufacturers that counsel might be heard at the bar to provide arguments which they themselves, the members elected under the Reform Act, were unable to furnish. They, too, who so loudly condemned the monopoly of the landlords, had themselves established, with the surplus of their capital, the most grinding monopoly ever beheld— the railroads, which were now cutting up the face of every county. Mr WOOD, of Kendal, said-Ihe time was a very favourable one for the repeal for prices, being now moderate, no suddell or violent change would be caused by any fall ot prices which free importation could prodii,,e, Mr BENNETT, of Wiltshire, considered the question to be one of wages; the reduction of wages was the object of the proposal. It was a reduction which would sacrifice the labourers by hundreds of thousands. Gentlemen must not sup- pose it a light matter to throw what they call poor lands out of cultivation; were they aware that these are the lands which employ the greatest number of labourers ? Mr O'CONNELL wished for free trade, not only in corn, but in all commodities. Lord SANDON animadverted upon the various protections given to the manufacturing interests, which they woDld hardly be willing to resign. No case had been made for withdraw ing protection from agriculture; and the Ministers who asked the House to go into committee were uuprepared with any plan to be there discussed. Mr HARVEY said that the motion onght to have been for inquiry, not merely into the state of these laws, but into the state 0 f the nation, of which the real grievance, he siid, was taxation. Free trade, in his opinion, would litle Improve the condition cither of the manufacturing or of the agricultural labourers. The motion did but propagate and foster a delusion; for in the present state of our finances we could not ruu the race of manufacture against foreigners.. Mr Hindley, Mr Dennistoun, Mr Sanford, and Mr James, addressed each a few sentences to the House. Mr V1LLIERS replied, and the House at length divided, when the motion was negatived by a ma- jority of 147, the numbers being 342 and 195. Mr RICE obtained leave to bring in a Bill to amend the acts whereby certain annuities had been granted to his Grace the Duke of Wellington. No provision had been made for setthng a jointure upon any wife whom the eldest son of the Duke of Wei- lington might marry.
