POETRY. -do- LOVEISATRtPmR. BY LEIGH CLIFFE, ESQ. Little love is a trifler I own, And mischievous artful, and sly, He will ne'er let ladies alone. Though he ne'er tells its wherefore or why; He smiles to delude, and lie lures to betray, Yet so artful he is, we can't chase him away Little love is an impudent elf, Into every heart he'll intrude I've scolded him often myself. But he still is presuming and rude When I frown he replies with so winning a smile, Thist I freely forgive all his mischievous guile But love is now growing in years, And is truly a (ami,!) man If he dies we will wail him with tears, But we'll keep him alive while we can. Though he is so artful, so false, and so "ly, We all try to lure him, I cannot tell why "COMING EVENTS CAST THEIR SHADOWS BEUORE." There i^a dreamy sadness ornes floating through my soul; I fly to scenes of gladness, Yet my sorrow spurns controul. For a deep and solemn voice, Foretelling future years, Bids my spirit not rejoice, For its lot is cast in tears. Yet I'struggle, but in vain, To wrestle with my lot; Though the future will be pain, And the past be ne'er forgot. Yes, this sad and trembling heart By a fearful cloud is shaded, Which will never more depart, Till life itself has faded E. C. WlILIAMS.
SCIENCE. ASTRONOMICAL NOTICES-(No. 12) JUNE 1839. MERCURY cannot be seen this month, his superior conjunction with the sun oecuriiiijf on the 20th. VENUS will continue to shine with extreme bril- liancy til) ne;ir 11 o'clock at night, in the western skies; and from her rapid progress towards the earth, will daily become a more ititerefting object for the telescope. 011 the evening of the 14th, the moon approaches the immediate neighbourhood of this planet, and if the atmosphere be clear at the time this phenomiuon will have a very pleasiijz effect. MARS passes rhe meridian about six o'clock in the evetiiiiw,, afid I)eioc-r in rapid retreat fi,orii us, is ap- parently considerably reduced in size; the gibbous appearance of thia planet is also, at present, very apparent; the proportion of the diameters beillg" as 88 to 100. On the 15th, at 11 o'clock, mars will ap- proach to within a few minutes of beta Virginia and will also be in conjunction with, and very near to the moon on the 18th, a little before 10 o'clock at night. JUPITER crosses the meridian at eight o'clock, P.M. on the l>t, and at six o'clock on the 31th and sets at one in the morning", almost due west, on the 15th. About midniht on the 19th, the moon may be seen in conjunction with Jupiter, and alinleto the south. The mean diameter of the planet, for the n oath, is 36 seconds. SATURN will be well situated for observation throughout the present month; it parses the meri- dian on the 1st at 42 minutes p isi I I on the 15th at -11 minutes past 10 and on the ;Otli at 40 minutes past nine, at an altitude of 19 degrees. It conies info conjunction with the moon on the 24th, when it may be seen distant 7° to the north The diameter of the planet this month will exceed ltil ,ec(,n(l., and the ring being very open, the major a"is41f Recolld, and the minor 18 seconds, renders this ob- ject a very interesting one for the telescope at the present time.

HOUSE OF LORDS—MONDAY, MAY 27. Lord NIELI,'OU',tNE, ill kiiiswer to a question from Lord Brougham, said that the measure which the Government contemplated respecting Canada was one which required much consideration, bat that it would certainly he submitted to Parliament. Lord BROUGHAM asked whether Colonel Prince, who had cruelly and illegally put to death four prisoners in Canada, was still a'lowed to hold ? commission in her Majesty's service? Lord NORM AN BY said that the Government had signified their disapprobation of the conduct of Colonel Prince. Lord BROUGHAM observed that he had no hesi- tation in declaring: as a lawyei, that Colonel Prince had been guilty of murder. The LORD CHANCELLOR gave notice th.it he will tills day week move the second reading of the ChurchDiscipline Bill. Lord %VINC[Ill,s["A asked Lord Melbourne whe- ther it was his intention to make anv statement us to the principles upon which her Majestygovern- ment is in future to be conducted ? Lord MELBOURNE answered, that he had no intention of making any general wtatenie,it on the subject. Lord WINOHLSEA said that in that case he would -iveiit)tice that on Friday he will otter some observations with the view of eliciting such an ex- planation as the House had a right to expect. Lord ELLENBOR.OUGH stated, in answer to a question from Lord Brougham, that Sir J. Nl'Neil received no salary whatever from the public, the whole expense of tii4 mission to Persia having been defrayed by the East India Company. .##-# HOUSE OF COM MONS —MONDAY, MAY 27. The House met to-day short'y after three o'clock. The attendance of members on both sides was The House met to-day short'y after three o'clock. The attendance of members on both sides was exceedingly numerous. Mr. J. Lee, the Senior Clerk, presided. ELECTION OF SPEAKER. At a quarter before four o'clock, Lord J. RUSSELL said, Mr. Abercromby having notified to her Majesty that he had declined the high office of Speaker of that House, her AJjjesty, in order to prevent the interruption of public business, wished that the House should immedi- ately proceed with the election of another getnie- mall to fill the chair. Mr. HANDLEY rose to propose Mr. Shaw Lefevre. He had regretted, he said, to hear from Sir Robert Peel, in the late explanations, an inti- mation of an intention to treat the choice of a Speaker as a trial of party strength. On this topic Mr. Handley diialed much emphasis, as indeed, having supported Lord Canterbury against his own party when they iae,liotisly set up Mr. abercromby in 1835, he was perfectly entitled to do, as far as his own personal consistency was ebneerned. He expressed a disinclination to select a Speaker from among the class of official men, whose habits must neeessar'ly have rendered them political partisans. Mr. SliavV Lefevre, whom he now proposed, had never been mixed lip with office. The Speaker should be a man. versed in the hiisi- ness of the House, with firmness and judgment to regulate its debates. But his duties did not end there. The number of private bills had greatly increased with the growth of population, wealth, and science, and no man had devoted more atten- tion than Mr. Shaw Lefevre to the due conduct of this important branch of business. His urbanity of manner and equabili y ofteinper were additional and acknowledged recommendations, and of him it may he truly said that he had never made an enemy nor lost a friend. SirS. LUSHINGTON, in seconding the proposal, declared his belief that there were many men within those walls who, by industry, could acquire the mere knowledge necessary for the discharge of a Speaker's duty. But he wished for something more-tie wished to see a Speaker resolved to sus- tain the privileges of the House, which there existed a disposition to assail There had never been a Speaker who had not sometimes incurred the temporary disapprobation of one party or another on some existing occasion but plat hi^h officer should look to no momentary popularity, but to a permanent and general opinion of his adherence to duty. The principles and conduct of MrShaw Lefevre were kno- n and appreciated. In the present state of public affairs, it was necessary that the Speaker should represent those sentiments which were entertained by the majority of the House, and, in Sir S. Lushington's opinion, by the majority of the people. The eyes of the public were fixed on the present deliberation. Thecountry was looking to see whether the House intended to stand still or to go forward. His own reason for seconding this inotjon was, that he saw in Mr Shaw Lefevre a candidate of popular opiiiions-oill. who had been ever zealous in the cause of reform, and whose election would show that in that cause the House intended to persevere. Mr WYNN began by exposing the discrepancy be- tween the mover and seconder of Mr Lefevre, the one having deprecated and excluded the considera- tions of party while the other had made the matter ai- together a party question. 10 the commendations, however, which they had both agreed to bestow oil Mr Lefevre, he gladly concurred nor would he, on the other hand, do more than notice, in one brief sentence of reprobation, that tneei irg (Mr O Co mi el IN late assembly in Dublin), at which the persons pre- sent had endured, without so much as an expression of disgust, the person il attack inade upon Mr Goulbnrn, the candidate whom he himself was about to propose, by a person who, forgetting the cha- racter of a gentleman, had given loose to language the most foul and disgraceful. (I his apposite chas tisement of Mr (rColiuell was loudly and gene- rally cheered.) The honour of the House was bound up in that of the Speaker; his election should be considered as the choice, not of the majority, but of the House, who, on all sides, slioulcl equally sup- port him. Mr Wynn then exposed the weakness of the argument against oilicial men, both as to prin- ciple and as to precedent. Official experience de- veloped the qualifications of the candidate, and so the House had been accustomed to think, at least throughout the present century, for they had elected Sir John Mitford, who was Attorney-General; Mr Abbott, who was Secretary for Ireland Mr Manners Sutton, who was Judge-Advocate; ai-d Mr Aber- cromby, who was a Cabinet Minister. He concluded by proposing Mr Goulburn, whose public services he justly eulogized. Mr W. PATTEN seconded the nomination of Mr Goulburn, and said that while he admitted the qualifications possessed by Mr Lefevre, but equally by Mr Goulburn,thought that there were other recom- mendations likewise of no little importance and in which Mr Goulburu had clearly the advantage parti- cularly in the opportunities which he had enjoyed of managing public business, and in the extent to which he had profited by those opportunities. "Another con- sideraiio!?," added he, "increases my confidence in the member for Lublin"-iit which accidental substi- tution of Dublin for Cambridge a lonrr peal of scorn- fullallghler rolled over the head of Mr O'Connell- "I itieiii t," said 31 r NV. lli tien, 11 my confideuce in the Member for Cambridge. He has been selected by a constituency unsurpassed in character and taients." The O'Conneli party here tried to raise in revenge an anti academical horse-laugh; but reform not having yet quite extinguished all respect for the uuiversities, the attempt excited olliy a murmur of displeasure, and Mr W. Patten, amid very general cheering, concluded by expressing his conviction that the confidence of the Universities was siiii. throughout England, a general passport to the con- fidence of the country. MrW. DUNCOMBE wished to know why, if party was to be put out of the question, the claims of Mr Bernal, who had so Ion, held the chair of the com- mittees, were now passed over 1 If, as report alleged, it was on account of the course he had taken with respect to the Jamaica Bill, that course, as evincing Mr Denial's independence, ought rather to have been a recommendation ot him for the office of Speaker. His own opinion, however, was, that if party had been laid aside, all men would have pointed to Mr Goulburu as the Member best fitted for the appointment. Mi S. LEFEVRE then rose and said The house has received with so much favour the proposition of my friends near me, that I feel relieved from much of the embarrassment which every indhiduallllllst feel who addresses the house on a matter relating personally to himself, But, notwithstanding this encouragement and the eulogies which have been pronounced upon me (and I never call be sufficiently grateful for the kindness which my friends have expressed on this occasion), it is ""possible that I can conceal from myself that any qualifications which I may be thought to possess for the office of Speaker, cannot in any degree bear a comparison with those 01 that right Honourable Gentleman whose recent retirement from the chair has now become a subject of universal regret. (Cheers) To me, who had the honour of proposing that Right Hon. Gentleman at the commencement of the present Parliament, it was most gratitying to hear from all sides the testimony to the ability and impartiality with which he pre- sided over our deliberations. But having myself witnessed his less conspicuous, though not less im- portant labours, having observed his kindness, courtesy, and promptitude in giving advice or Hssistance to every member who stood in need of either, and above all, having watched the bcueficial influeuce which he exercised ou the conduct of the private business of this liolise, I feel the difficulty in which the House is now placed in deciding by this vote oil the person who shall snoceed him; and I feel also the increased responsibility which must be thrown on auy individual w;>o in»V be honoured by your choice. (Loud cheers) The responsibility which in ordinary times, and under ordinary cir- cumstances, is inseparable from the laborious duties of the chair, is of a suiffciently grave and exacting character. But in these times 1 regret to say, and in the present excited state of political feeling, that responsibility is immeasurably increased. (Hear, heal'!) Eiitertaiiiitiz, tlif-reforf-, these opinions, it may not unreasonably be thought that I am pre- sumptuous in allowing myself to be placed in nomi- nation for the Speakership. I have not, 1 am aware, the advantages of my Right Hon. Friend opposite (AirGoulbill-ii), If he, %%ill ti'l,),v ine to cal, liiiii so- I have held 110 high political situation. I have not had the advantage of long experience in official life. My course has been that of an independent country gentleman (hear, hear!)—anxious only to make myself as useful as my po-iiion in Parliament would enable me to be. (Cheers ) It was with that object that I have acquired a small and bumble share in the approval which has been pronounced of those improvements to which my Honourab'e Friend (Mr Handley) referred %lith i-calit-d to the conduct of private business; and if the experiment which has been m:1de-1 allude to the committee on petitions especially—has been successful, I can claim but a small portion of that credit which attaches to it in common with the Honourable Members by whom I had the honour of heing assisted in that work of reform. (Cheers) We could not be ignorant of the advantage of the interests involved in this branch of legislation—we could not be ignorant 01 the great- dissatisfaction which prevailed out ofdoro as to the couduct of the private bUliilless-and I believe we all felt most anxious to rescue it from an imputation which I am afraid was too justly deserved. I "hall only add, that although I am perfectly conscious that there are many Members who possess special qualifications far superior to mine, yet I yield to no one in a desire to maintain the honour aud dignity ofthis House, it) a sti-onz sense of the importance of protecting its privileges from being iu the slightest degree trenched upon, aud ill a firm determination io exert all the energies I possess in the discharge of any duty which the House may impose upon me. With these observations I chee. fully submit myself to the pleasure of the House. (Tiie Honourable Gentleman resumed his scat amid loud and conti- nued cheering ) Mr. GOU LBURN m not ashamed to say that I rise to address the House with the few observa- tions with which I shall trouble them tinder feel- ings of considerable eUlbarrassment, because, on the one hand, I cannot but entertain a fear lest I should in any manner appear insensible to the honour which has been proposed to me; and on the other, lest 1 should be thonght capable of arro- gating as my due the lavish praise which has been expressed with regard to me through the kindness of my friends. I have had the advantage of long parliamentary experience. I have had the honollr of witnessing the elevation to that chair of Mr. Abbott, of NJ r. Manners Sutton, and of the Right Honourable Gentleman whose secession ,e all lamented; and I am well aware, from the observa- tion I have had the opportunity of making, how important the duties are that attach to the Speaker of the House of Commons. I know, in common \vith my \I"nollrab'e Friend opposite, that at the present moment—from the greater complication of the national interests-froiii the increased pres- sure of both public and private business from the greater attention which the people are in the Il<lbil of paying to the procedings of this HO'I!e- and, above all, from the nicely-balanced state of political opinions and interests—the difficulties which ordinarily attach to this ■ ffice are greatly increased. And, on the other hand, 1 cannot but feel how very deficient I am in those qualifications which would enable any gentleman to discharge those duties in such a manner as would give satis- faction to this House. I can advance no preten- sions beyond what are possessed, I might almost say, by every Honourable Member of this House, who, deeply attached to the constitution of the country, feels an anxious desire to uphold the pri- vileges of Parliament, and to maintain those rules and forms in our proceedings which are so essen- tial to the support and confidence of the public at large (cheers). Under these circumstances, 1 have little to.offer on my owu behalf to the House. I cannot but feel deeply grateful to the Right Hon. Gentleman the Member for Montgomeryshire, who has proposed me, and the Honourable Member for Lancashire, who has seconded the proposal, for the too partial manner in which they have been pleased to speak of my past conduct and my pre- sent qualifications. Whatever may be the result of this evening's discussion, the recollection ol their partial friendship will be to me a source of unfeigned gratification; and, if in the course ofa now long public life I have rendered any services to iny country, and if, as my Ilight Hon. Friend has observed, 1 have elsewhere been subjected to oble- quy, the knowlede that I possess their regard and esteem will be more than a compensation for any seryices I have rendered, and will be an adequate consolation for any vituperative expressions that may have been launched upon me elsewhere [loud cheers]. I hae only further to submit myself entirely to the judgment of the House. If it shall be their pleasure to place me in that chair, I shall be bound to exercise whatever of ability or exper ence I possess to discharge satisfactorily the dury the House shall impose upon me; but if, on the other hand, the House should exercise a sounder discretion, and should overbear the par- tiality of my triends in consideration of the acknow- ledged meri Is of my Honourable Friend opposite, I can as sincerely assure the House that I shall, with greater satisfaction to myself, and no less zeal for the dignity of the House, co-operate with every Member of the House to support the autho- rity of the chair. and maintain that regularity and order in our proceedings which I believe to be essential to our own character, and which can alone command for its the confidence of the coun- try [cheers]. Strangers were then ordered to withdraw, and the House divided, when there appeared- For Mr Shaw Lefevre. S]7 For Mr Goulburn 293 Majority for Air Lefevre. 18 The announcement of the numbers was received with cheers froill the Ministerial benches. F Mr S, LEFEVRE, having been conducted to the chair by the Hon. Moier and Seconder, shortly thanked Ihe HOllse for the honour they had con- ferred upon him. and assured them that he would, to the best 01 his ability, impartially and fairly ad- minister the duties at tlte high office to which tie ,ted. had been ele -(Clieers.) Lord JOB N RUSSELL: I rise, sir, to congratu- late you upon the distinguished honour which you have received from the HOllse.-(Hear, hear.) I am sure it will be quite unnecessary, alter the debate which has just taken place, and after your long experience of the business of the House, that I should say anything either of the arduous nature of the duties to be performed, or of the distinguished honour which any one must acquire by performing those duties to the satisfaction of this House. I shall, therefore, only say that I perceived with very great pleasure during the debate which took place, that there was a disposition on both sides to give every credit to the qualifications of the two mem- bers of this House who were proposed, and that there was nothillg in the course of the debate from those who proposed you, sir, or from those who proposed the Right Hon. Gentleman opposite, utjiich could create an unpleasant feeling with regard to that competition—(Cheers)—and I am sure, from what the Right Hon. Gentleman the Member for Cambridge said, and which respect for his character induces me implicitly to believe, that he would be one of the foremost to support the privileges of the House, though the choice might not fall on hiin—(Hear, hear)—that he, as well as those who voted for him, will make good that pro- mise, and that you will receive not only from those who supported your election, but from the whole of the House generally, that support and unani- mous concurrence by which alone in the difficult circumstances in which a Speaker is placed, he can hope to succeed in preserving order, and carrying properly into effect the important duties confided to him.—(Hear, hear!) I congratulate you, sir, on the high honour you have received, and beg now to state to the House, that it is her Majesty's plea- sure that the Speaker should be submitted to her Majesty for the royal approbation in the House of Lords to-inorrow at three o'clock. 1 shall propose that the House do proceed to business after the Speaker has received the royal approbation. I now move that this House do adjourn. Sir R. IIELI, inquired whether it was the Noble Lord's intention really to proceed with business to- inorrow ? Lord JOHN RUSSELL thought that any lIeces sary business might be gone into after the Speaker had received the royal approbation. Sir 15. PEEL was not aware that there was any important government measure on the paper for to- morrow, but on the part of the Hon. Member for Preston (Sir H. Fleetwood) a notice of considerable importance had been given on the subject of the elective franchise. He wished to know whether it was the Hon. Gentleman's intention to press that motion 1 Sir H. FLEETWOOD replied, (hat it was his oC- r intention to postpone the motion till that day wet-it. Sir it. PEEL understood that on Thursday the intention-! of the government were to be made known with respect to Jamaica, and that on Friday Ihe question of education was to be brought forward. Lord J. RUSSELL said, that with respect to the former question, his Right Hon. Friend would to- morrow state the terms of the motion to be made 00 Thursday. With regard to the other, he would to- morrow state that he should postpone theeducation grant for a fortnight.—(Great cheering from the opposition.) Mr HUME wished to know whether the Canada question would be brought forwnrd on Thursday. Lord JOHN RUSSLLL was understood to reply in the negative. The House adjourned at half-past five. BOUSE OF LORDS—TUESDAY, MAY 28. The LORD CHANCELLOR having taken his scat on the woolsack announced that hlr Majesty, not thinking fit to be present at this time, had been pleased to issue a commission to declare her Royal approba- tion of the choice of Speaker made by her faithful Commons. Mr S. LEFEVRE, the Speaker elect, addressed the Lords Commissioners as follows :Nfy Lords, I have to acquaint your Lordships that in obedience to her Majesty's commands, and in the exercise of their undoubted right, her Majesty's faithful Commons have proceeded to the election of a Speaker, and that their choice has fallen on me. Deeply impressed with a sense of my own unwortfiiness, I now present myself at your bar, and submit myself to her Majesty's royal approbation. The LORD CHANCELLORanswered as follows: — Mr Shaw Lefevre, we have it command from her Majesty to declare her Majesty's entire confidence in your talents, diligence, and sufficiency to fulfil the important duties of the high office of Speaker of the House of Commons, to which you have been chosen by that House. In obedience to the Commission which has been read, and by virtue of the authority therein contained, we do declare her Majesty's Royal appro- bation and allowance of you as Speaker of the House of Commons. The SPIAK ER.-My Lords, I submit myself with all humility to her Majesty's Royal will and pleasure; and if in the dischargo of my duties aJl Spea kcr, aod i,1 the maintenance of the rights of the House of Cololikolls, I may be Ipd into all) involuntary error, I humbly entreat that it may be imputed to ine alone, and not to her Majesty's faithful Commons. A great number of petitions were presented Illlavour of Mr Rowland Hill's plilti of all uniform penny postage. The Duke of RICHMOND presented a petition from the clergy of the archdeaconry of rorringtoii, in West Sussex, against the proposed system of lIational education unconnected with t'ie Established Church. A conversation again rose regarding Colonel Prince's conduct in ordering certain prisoners to be shot. The Marquis of NORMAN BY stated that he should be prepared to produce the papers required by Lord Brougham, and to make what he should consider a satisfactory statement. Lord BROUGHAM presented bill declaratory of the power of the mother country In the colonies, and prohibitory of the practice of acting 011 I-esulutiolis in the colonies as if they were laws. Some bills having been forwarded a stage, their Lordships adjourned till Thursday. HOUSE OF COMMONS—TUESDAY, MAY 28. The SPEAKER took his seat in the cliiir, all(] shortly after rose and said, that he had to acquaint the House that the House had been to the House of Peers, where the Louis Commissioners, by virtue of her Majesty's Commission, "ad declared that her Majesty bad been pleased to approve of the choice of filitliful Commons in electing hinl as their Speaker. He hoped that lie might be allowed to take that opportunity of again ollering to the House his sincere and grateful acknowledgments for the honourable mark of confidence which the House had conferred upon him. He felt that he should have fre- quent occasion for the indulge", e and support of the House but he also felt that indulgence and support would never be withheld frotn him so long as he pro ceeded in the faithful discharge of his public duties. Mr W. Cooper took the oaths and his seat for the borough of Hertford. A new writ was ordered for the borough of Ludlow, in the room of Viscount Clive, now Earl of Powis, and for the city of Edillburg-h, ill the room of the Right Hon. J. Abercromby, called up to the House at Peers. The Strood (Kent) Church Bill, after discussion, was lost on a division. The London Police Bill called forth a conversation. Mr HUME postponed his motion regarding the pecuniary transactions of the Bank of England till the 6th of June. He als., gave notice that he should move for the papers respecting Colonel Prince's case. Mr LABOUCflERE stated that he should not proceed with the Jamaica Government Bill, but that on Thursday we would move for leave to bring in a new Bill. Lord J. RUSsgLL, in answer to Mr Baines, said that he had no intention of presenting the corres- pondence between the Lord Chancellor and the Duke of Newcastle regarding the Lurd Lieutenancy of Nottinghamshire, except any friend of the Noble Duke required its production. Lord J. RUSSELL stated, in answer to Mr Hume, that the laiest information of the Government re- specting Turkey, was that the Turkish army had advanced to the eastern batik of the Euphrates, but had not crossed- 1115 Lordship declared that he knew of nothing calculated to make him believe the efforts to preserve peace between the Porte and Egypt would not he successful. Mr FINCH having asked a question respecting the Children's Friend Society, Lord John RUSSELL said, that he had ordered inquiries to be instituted into the truth of certain statements recently made public. The Noble Lord then, in proposing that the House, at its rising, should adjourn to Ihursday, announced the course intended to be pursued regarding certain public measures In answer to a question from Lord SANDON, Lord J. RUSSELL said that the Prisons Bill would come on either on Priday or Monday. Sir R. PEEL trusted that something would be done with the Election Petitions Bill. Lord J. RUSSELL was of the same opinion, and hoped he should meet with the Right Hon. Baronet's co-operation in proposing that orders of the day have priority of notice on I uesdays and Tnursdays. Sir E. K A rclI ULL asked when the "budget" would be brought forward] The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER said that in a fortnight he hoped to propose resolutions on the subject of postage of letters," and that he would then make Ills financial statement." In answer to a question from Mr DARBY, Lord J. RVSSILL said that a bill would be pro- posed for the amendment of the Poor Law Act, of whi h one feature would be the continuance of the Commissioners for one year longer. Mr KEMBLE said that, seeing the postponement of the National Education question, lie wished to ask the Noble Lord, the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether the resolutions would be bt ought forward 011 Friday fortnight, or whether altered ones would then be proposed? Lord J. RUSSELL answered that it was his in- tention on Friday fortnight to propose the resolutions as he had given notice; but he would state the grounds on which he did not propose to bring them forward on Friday, as originally stated. He thought that both the intention of the plan and the grounds on which he had proposed It had been entirely misunderstood; and he therefore wished to lav some papers on the table of the House before the motion was brought forward, in order that the mis- understanding might be in some degree remedied. The rest of the sitting was occupied in the exami- nation of Mr Benjamin Lovibond for an alleged tampering with a Parliament'11 Y petition. He was ultimately reprimanded by the Speaker. Some private bills having been disposed of, the House adjourned till Thursday.

SUPPOSED INCENDIARY FIIlE AT PINILICo.-It will be recollected that in the latter end of April last a fire broke out in the extensive timber yards beloiigit)g to Air Cubiit I (he ellile,,t btiilder, at Thames-bank, Pimlico. The destruction ot timber was estimated at not less than £ 2,000, and from the discovery of small parcels of tow steeped in oil which were found amongst some of the stacks of timber that escaped, t he fire was conjectured to be the work of an incendiary. Circumstances have since Iran spired which tend to confirm this belief, and accord- ingly a reward of f200 i" now offered for the ap- prehension of the principal party concerned. Her Majesty's Secretary of S.ate for the Home Depart- ment olfers £ 100, with free pardon, to any but the chief party implicated and Mr Cubil t o,Ters an ad- ditional J," 150 for such evidence as shall bring the actual perpetrators to jus.ice.
