LONDON, MONDAY, OCT. It). WE belieTe we may announce that the state of the Poles is,sealed. Modlhi has fallen, and Zitrnosc must soon follow, Prince Adam Czsrtoryski, Skrzynecki, and other leaders, have taken refuge in the neutral town of Cracow, In a short time Marshal Paskeiv.tselt, the new Prince of Warsaw, will be master of Poland. This catastrophe is generaliy, an,1 we think with justice, attributed to the treachery of some of the leaders the violent and indefensible measures of the Jacobin clubs established in Warsaw, whose atrocities alienated many and dis gusted all; and led to general disunion and distrust. A correspondent of a French Paper goes so far as to say, that there was but one honest man in all Polish poli- tics, Skrzyneclci, alvi tLat the rest were principally occupied in intriguing against him. We, however, in accounting for the defeat, of the Poles, should not leave out of consideration the immense disproportion be- tween the parties engaged, and may be more inclined Co yonder that the Poles were able to struggle so long, than that they were compelled to surrender at last.- Titt-ir valour and gallantry in the field have obtained for them at least lenient and respectful treatment. Paskewitsch, so far from repeating the conduct of Slt- warrow is endeavouring by all means to conciliate the Poles, and it is supposed that a constitution modelled upon that arranged at the congress of Vienna in 1815, will be guaranteed by the Emperor. They are favor- able; and we learn from all parts of the Continent that it is decidedly abating. The cessation of hosti- lities in Poland will tend to arrest the further progress of this scourge. It is said that the Emperor of Russia expressed to the SJuke of Mortemart, before he left St. Petersburg}!, his determination to support the Kingof-Holland and it is said that Prince Paskewitsch. has declared to the Polish Goneral (Skrzyneck;), tbat in the spring of next year the Emperor is resolved on attacking the French revolution. A private letter from Constantinople, in the Prussian State Gazette, announces that there was another fire on the 2d Sept., which continued 21 hours, and destroyed several quarters of the city. Three days before, the Palace of the Admiralty and a Mosque were burnt. It was certain that this was the work of incendiaries, and several persons detected at night with combustibles- about them had been put to death. We may state, in the strongest terms, that the Minis- ters will not desert their post in this awful crisis. Before the end of the week Parliament will be pro- -• ro-gued, and the whole attention of t! e Govei nrrnnt «vili he directed to the means best suited for citi-rvitip, tile hill. The public may be assured th;.t the bill is merely postponed. It is understood that Lord Wharncliffe will this evening bring forward a series of propositions on the subject of Reform, which it is supposed will be buf feebly supported even by his own party.- Times. It is said in the Irish papers that Mr. O'Connell is to succeed Sir nrm, Maemahon as Master of the Rolls in Ireland Sir William, they allege, being about to resign.

M. W»Im«iey as5d Mr. J. Whitesideof Lancaster, was upset by the run of the tide, having taken ground upon a baak betwixt the inner buoy and the Perch at Suaderiaud, on the ebb of Friday.

OPINIONS OF THE PUBLIC PRESS ON THE REJECTION OF "THE BILL." The Reform Bill is rejected by the Honse of Lords by a majority of 41. The Bill is not lost: the question St whether th Lords are lost? We hope not. The tglnper of the people, and the powers-ndncb the r<?nsti- tatios has vested in other parties, will preserve the Peers from the consequences of their determination.—> The Bill is rejected by the votes of the Bishops, and the Pitt and Liver-puddle Peers. The Bill is lost by the voles of the nominees of the Crom), in opposition to the ancient nobility, as weU as the people from u hom )1 tbey have- sprusg", and the King", frotn whom their hoaoars have proceeded. The fitct itself suggests the remedy; the Ministers must fee firm, or a civil war will, foe the result. Sieauwhile we earnestly entreat .& £ people to be temp crate; to bate notliirg of their deterauaation tOJ3pare nQ opportunity of manifesting their wisiiss—bat to be peaceable. To recollect that rcferiK is noiv advanced to a stag's which it has never before readied—that this advance has been the result of eoratHuiionol activity and coustitutionxl union.— Let the sales of aH good subjects be drawn closer; 1 h.t them meL-I,- a,d,p-out- forth supplications to the King' to take taeasores equal to the einergency-let them hspe for the best and prepare for the worst, But the fiiends of refona are too strong to be justified in de- spairing-, or-shesvlag the violence of despair.—Globe.

There is no fairtting, no irresolution: hot, on the contrary, so far as time will permit us to observe, unbounded determi- nation to renew their cxrtions with redoubled energy. There vrill be no change of Ministry—the rats may assure themselves «f that. Lord Grey and his col leagues are sensible, that to abandon their posts at suclran hour wouid argue a total want of public spirit and patriotism towards the country, on the eve of a P, convulsion, and an utter callousness to the feelings and honour of gentlemen, in slmlldng from their gra cious Prince, who has shown them, amidst unexampled difficulties, the noblest and most generous confidence. The question stands thus;—The people of Engiand demand a resumption of their rights. The mock re- form Peers have rejected their present demand in toto; but hold out some vague prospect (not even a distinct promise) of giving them, in the course of another hatt century, a trifle less tlwn 6d. in the pound. How will the British nation endure the unceremonious rejection vof'their almost unanimous prayers r-Timc8. Up to the hour when the Archbishop of Canterbury rose, it was indeed supposed that the Bench of Bishops would either give their votes in favour. of Ministers, or abstain from voting' on either side; but the declara- tion of that Most Reverend Person against a sweeping measure of Reform at once dispelletllhe illusion, and proved that on this occasion the Representatives of the Church were rot disposed to adopt their usual course, of yielding obedience to the recommendations of the Crown. The Metropolitan andeleven Bishops present, with the addition of nine who voted by proxy, were found, therefore, on a division, among the opponents of the Biil, there being only two, Maltby, the new Bishop of Chichester, and Bathurst, the Venerable Bishop of Norwich, to he found among its supporters. The Archbishop of York, the Bishop of London, the Bishops of Ely, Chester, Hereford, Worcester, and St. David's absented themselves from the discussion, and gave no vote on either side. It will be seen,.therefore, that the influence of the Right llev. Bench had a se- rious effect on the result, and that had they, as on other questions, given their support to the Minister of the day, the second reading of the Bill, instead of Iwing negatived, might have been carried by a snnll but im- portant majority.—Observer, Lord John Russell's Bill was rejected Jast night, or, rather this morning. We congratulate our fellow sub- jects sincerely upon this happy result, but we shall not affront the House of Lords by any display of exulta- tion, that they have done that which it was" both their Interest and their duty to do; their decision has in. deed saved the country from a convulsion, and by the manly exercise of their privileges, they have insured the perpetuity of those privileges but knowing that th.:ir lordships were educated and intelligent English- men, we never had a doubt that they would act as they men, we never had a doubt that they would act as they have acted. They have taught to the disaffected of their own country and age what their illustrious fathers taught to the world-that Englishmen are not to be intimidated by the bellowing of noisy braggarts.— Standard.
STATE OF PUBLIC FEELING. LONDON.—As early as eleven o'clock Saturday morn- ing meetings of the inhabitants of between ten and twelve parishes took place. At St. Anne's, Westminster, a re- quisition was sent to the Churchwardens to hold a meet- ing, and a large body of the parishioners proceeded in consequence to the vestry. Here the doors were found dosed against them, and they adjourned to a tavern in Frith-street. Mr. Carque was called to the chair, and, after some conversation, a resolution was unanimously carried, to the effect that the present assemblage were de- ll, p termined to support Ms Majesty and the Ministers. The Churchwardens were then waited upon, who consented to allow a public meeting tob-eheld to-morrow at twelve, at the vestry-room. In the parish of Mary le-bone a si- milar feeling was expressed by the inhabitants, who, in the course of the day, caused a placard to be extensively cir- culated throughout the parish, of which the following is a copy: The Lords have rejected the bit!. I England expects every man to do his duty.' The paiis-hioners will assemble at the Horse Bazaar, at 12 on Monday next, to address the King, support his Ministers, and consult on the present state of public affairs. Pursuant to a resolu- tion passed at two preparatory meetings, the inhabitants are desired solemnly to devote Monday next for these objects, and to suspend all business and close their shops.' In St. C.ement Danes, the inhabitants are ear nestly re- quested t) meet in tha Court-room at the Vestry, on Mon- day.,at I for the purpose of the propriety of petitioning his Majesty on the present state of public af- fa'rs." Various other parishes are also in motion, and ap- i,a:e-.it'y w'tli more determination and definitive aim than ever. De'egates from several parishes lesolved on a Meet- ing last night at the Crown and Anchor, and a Court of Common Council was also called Saturday evening upon this mamentous occasion. lJpon many of the shutters in Holborn, &c. large placards have been posted, calling on the people to pay no taxes, and resist seizures. A bro- ker has issued a notice as follows No Too! of Power— Mr. Y. begs to inform the inhabitants that he refuses to levy for taxes of any description." It is supposed that nearly the whole of the Reformers of London, will on Wednesday bear to the foot of the Throne their prayers that the King will continue his present Ministers in office. His Majesty is expected in town Monday, and wi.l hold a Levee on Wednesday, when it is expected that an im- inenie m-iltittide will assemble in the neighbourhood of the Palace on that day, including all the Benefit Societies their In the Money Market the panic has not been so severe as might have been expected, the specula- tors not being taken altogether by surprise; but though not calculating upon so large a majority against the Re- form Bill, the total fall in the prices has not exceeded 1 per Q- nt. MEETING OF THE REFORM MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS,—A Meeting of the supporters of the Re- form Bill in the House of Commons, was held Saturday, at Willis's Rooms. Upwards of two hundred were pre-' a 'nt. Lord Ebrington in the Chair.—As this meeting was only considered preliminary to the one of a more desicive character for Monday, no formal Resolutions were, we un- derstand, passed but the Members, most of whom spoke at some len th, were completely unanimous in their deter- mination to support the present Ministers, and to take the most effectual and constitutional stpps for carrying int4> effect the Bill of Reform which has been rejected by tlnj Lords, It is important to observe, as marking the disinte- rested and independent character of this Meeting, that among the two hundred persons who were present, there was not one holding any official situation, or otherwise con- nected with the Government, except as the friends of this great measure which his Majesty's Ministers had brought forward, and which had passed by a tiicmphant majority i, the House of Commons. Nothing can exceed the de- termined spirit which animated all the Members present; and they separated &fter lotiti.aii(i repeated cheering of the sentiments expressed by the leading Reformers, with an undertaking and declaration to each other, to redouble their eliorts ia support of his Majesty's Ministers in their wise and patriotic course.—Since writing the above, we have ascertained that formal Resolutions were passed, and that they were of a very strong character.— Observer. RIOTS AT DERBY.—-The Jetters from Derby contain the unfavourable intelligence of the commencement of serioits disturbances there soon after the news was re- ceived of the rejection of the Reform Bill by the House of Lords. The letters and viva voce statements of the riots differ in many points; indeed, so much alarm appeared to exist, that to obtain any accurate details was nearly impos- sible, as to the progress of the rioters. It appears that the town prison was broken into and the prisoners released. The ino-b then attacked the County Goal, and our account leaves ihe people ia the act of forcing that prison, while another later account is, that all the prisoners in it also had heen released. In these attacks a few persons were killed,and many wounded, the servants in the prison firing on the mob. The people proceeded to the house of Mr, Mozeleyr and nearly destroyed it, under the appre- henson that that was the individual who wrote to the Marqnis of Londonderry, stating that the Reform Peti- tion adopted at tiwi Meeting ir Derby, did not speak the, sentkaents of that respectable people, and that the children had signed it, &c. The letter was read by the coble Lord in the aGUe of Lords. It was not (ill the windows of Mr. Mozeley's house had been demolished, that the mob ascertained they were wrong as to the house of the individual they wanted. The mob subsequently proceedtd to destroy windows and property belonging to persons known to entertain To y principles, and when the coach left, which reached London two hours ago, the mob was forming itself into divisions to proceed in differ- ent directions, to commit acts of violence. It does not apj ear that the military had made their appearance, although one account states that seven persons had bee i shot by soldiers. The public authority of Derby were wholly unable to restrain the populace. They sent off a despatch to Government, with the information of the riots. At the time the last coach left Derby the streets were crowded to excess with the rioters, and the greatest appre- hensions were entertained. There was a statement cur- rent in Derby that the people of Manchester had risen. DERBY, MONDAY, Two O'CLOCK.—There has been no organized mob; sereral'parties have infested the town at the same moment; the soldiers not being sufficiently nume- rous to occupy many stations, there being only 45 men of th 15th Hussars. A party last night attacked the house cf Mr. Haden, and broke all his windows. Mr. H. Haden imprudently presented himself and fil cd upon the mob. A volley of stones were immediately discharged at the win- dows, and one of the missiles struck Mr."Haden a severe blow on the head, and he suffered the most excruciating pain till six this morning, when he expired ? The soldiers have been actively engaged all night in quelling small party riots, and were compelled to fire ball cartridges in many instances. Many persons have been wounded. The spirit still keeps up, and the soldiers are now firing in the Market Place. One man, was run through the body, and a man has been shot by the soldiers in Sadler Gate. PS. The soldiers have just made a charge upon the peo- ple and a man was shot dead a few yards from our house. A great many reports at present prevail, dislurha fees having commenced in other places. At Glasgow, it is said, the people had risen, and that Government havejast received information to that effect. This is very doubtful as sufficient time has not transpired to allow the news to reaeh Glasgow of the defeat of the Bill and the return of the post, to furnish any such information. BIRMINGHAM.—The unwelcome news of the rejection of the Reform Bill in the House of Lords arrived about 5 o'c'ock Saturday afternoon. An universal and mingled feeling of bitter disappointment and indignation pervaded the whole population. The funeral bells of all the Churches and Chapels were immediately muffiled and tolled as :he mostj solemn occasions. The Council of the Political Unicn assembled spontaneously in fit course of the even- ing, and on Sunday morning the town was found placarded with the following excellent Address :— A ddress of the Council of the Birmingham Political Union to all their Fellow-Comitrymen in the United Kingdom. "FRIENDS AND FELLOW-COUNTKYSTEV.—The Bill of Re- form is rejected by the House of Lords! Patience! Pa- tience 1 Patience! Our beloved King is firm —the House of Coumons is fii-iii-ihb whole Nation is firm. Niliit. ilier), have ihe people to fear? Nothing: unless their own vio- lence should rashly lead to anarchy, and place ditficulfie in the way of the King and fTis Ministers, Therefore there must he no violence. The people a'e too strong to require violence, Hv peace, bv law. by order, every one must rally round the Throneof the King. The small majority of the Lords will soon come to a sense of the duty which they owe to their country and to the King; or so in? other leal means will h" devised of cat 13 ing the Bill of Reform into a law without delay. Fellow Countrymen !-Be patient-hp. peaceful—be. vricth obedient to the laws, ami every thins is yet «;ife God bless the King. J THOMAS ATTWOOD, Ch drinan. By Order of the Council. •l BKNJA VilN H A DLEY, Secretary." The muffled bills continued to toll during Sunday. BATH.—The disappointment expressed at the news 0 the Bill being thrown out of the Lordswas very great. Se- veral of the shops were partially closed, and tlie bells of St. James's rang a muffled peal. The delay-the resis- tance of Reform, thus far, has already promoted the idea among the pe pie of resistance to the payment of taxes but we say, wait yet, anarchy will be the result of such a measure, and that m"st be the last necessity. First, let meetings be assembled-not Parish, but Public Meetings —of cities, towns, and counties. Let Addresses bo for- warded to our beloved and patriotic Sovereign, praying him not to dismiss his present Ministers, who have the con- fidence of the country reposed in them, and praying him to adopt whatever measures are within his royal preroga- tive to pass the Bill; & At St. A lhau's we hear that a black flag instantly waved from the steeple of the Abbey. BRISTOL, The lamented result of the division in the Lords on the all-absorbing question of Reform, reached this city about a quarter before seven on Saturday even- ing. The first effect was the assemblage of a very nume- rous body of men on the Exchange, and in the neighbour- hood of the London day-coach offices, some, who had no opportunity of perusing the papers, to receive a confirma- tion of the news, and others to learn the state of the me-, tropolis. During their suspense they formed themselves into groups, in which the fate of the Bill was discussed with more than ordinary freedom. From the temper dis- played in many instances, and from the warmth of feeling universally apparent, we couid perceive how great was the mortification which the rejection of the measure had oc- casioned, and how deeply rooted in the hearts of the peo- ple was their attachment to it. We could perceive, too, amidst the temporary gloom which its untoward fate could not but throw over them, a sternness of resolution and a devotedness to the cause, which made us at the moment tremble rather for the immediate consequences than fear for its ultimate success. We rejoice to say, however, that the good sense which has all along characterised the peo- ple in this arduous struggle, has restrained them from committing the least breach of order, and from acting in any way derogatory to the high character to which, a.<Tre- reformers and patriots, they aspire. The Council of the Political Union met on Sunday, and resolved on a public meeting for the following day. The attendance was ex- ceedingly numerous, and a string of resolutions were passed and an address to his Majesty agreed on. The speakers generally exhorted the people to abstain from violence, while they encouraged them to avail themselves of all lawful means to accomplish their end. -LJJercury,
THE KING AND REFORM.—The circumstances under which the Earl of Waldegrave resigned his situations, -is one of the Lords of the Bedchamber have not yet' we believe, found the newspapers.

VVHITTICISMS FROM THE MORNING POST.—• Death Extraordinary.—We have to record the melancholy fate of a great individual, which caused the whole Globe to go into deep mourning on Saturday last. He expired at a quarter past six, having been in a decline for the last six months. He fell a victim finally to the blows of 41 individuals, who had been frequently heard to say that they would finish him whenever he had the audacity to come into their House. We do not know his surname, but hear that his Christian nanic xi-as Bill. The funeral is to take place to-morrow. The Bishop of Chichester to make a funeral oration over his "rave. He is to be buried in the Seven Dials, St. Giles's. Lord John Russell, chief mourner."—" Important r ailure■•in Trade We have just heard that in conse- quence of several of his bills not having been accepted by a certain House, that Lord Althorp intends to give up the Chequers, which business has always been a losing concern to him."
OIBMSMIAli PAKLlAMEI!iTTs HOUSE OF COMMONS, Monday, Oct. 10. In consequence of the call of the house, the gallery, was not opened until half past five. Sir. F. Bordett presented a petition from St. Cle- ment's Danes, amid cries of I Places,' expressive of their deep regret at the rejection of the Reform bill, and declaratory of their confidence in ministers, who hèy hoped wou Id adopt all just and constitutional means to secure the passing of the bill yet.-On. the motion of the Chancellor of the Exchequer the orders of the day were postponed. STATE OF THE UOUNTTtY.-Lor(I El)riyi-toti rose tO bring forward his motion on the present state of the country. Frequently as he (Lord Ebrington) had the honour of addressing' the houie, and at all times under embarrassed at this awful crisis of public affairs. He had the satisfaction to know that the motion he should submit would not be decided by any thing which felt'' from him. The course he was about to recommend was simply a confirmation of what they had already done.—(Cheers), And he was sure that the House of Commons which had the virtue to I ass a bill to amend its own constitution would not be disposed to shrink from maintaining its consistency (hear anicheers)t from vindicating its own rights (tremendous cheers for some t.m ), and redeeming the pledges they had given their constituents (iiear, hear). He called the' attention of the House to the circumstances under which Ministers had been called on t,) administer the affairs of the country—a period so appaling that he al- most doubted the ability of any men to restore the country to a state of happiness or security. Tho Noble Lord then proceeded to review the acts of the present Ministry up to the introduction of the Reform bill, of the progress of which he gave a brief and rapid sketch. For these and other efforts which they had made to hencfit the people, he contended that Ministers deserved the confidence of this House allti .he concluded by moving the following resolution: "That while this House deeply laments the present state of a Bill for a Reform in the Representation of the people in the Commons House of Parliament, in favour of which the opinion of the country stands, unequivocally pronounced, and which has been matu- red by discussions the most anxious and laborious, it feels itself imperalively called upon to reassert is perfect adherence to the principle and leading provi- sions of that great measure, and to express its unabated confidence in the integrity, perseverance, itil abi.ity of those Ministers who, in introducing and conducting it* have so well consulted the best interests of the coun- try." (Cheers.) Sir C. Dnndas seconded the motion. Mr. Goulhurn said he was sure that after the recent proceedings in that house'the noble lord could not ex- pect him (Mr. Gouiburn) and those who acted with him, to concur in a motion which would go to stultify not only all their conduct on the Reforirf 'Bill, but on several other measures which had been brought before the house by the ministers. Independently, then, of the reform question, there was nothing- to justify a voe of confidence in ministers, for as to Ireland even t,,Ieir friends did not seem highly to approve of their adlf"- nist ration. Mr. Mat-auley.—Tlie resolution of my noble friend embraces two points—one expressive of our unabated attachment to the principles of reform as developed in the bill and next, a declaration of our undiminished con- fidence in the ministers. I consider these two portion" of the resolution to be identical. J say that at present there is onlv one question before us--tiat of reform* and that there arc only two parties, the friends of tl:6 bill, and its enemies. I take it for granted that in tiliq house the reform bill is decided upon to be a good hd that it was carried by A majority of 109 cr 110 votes- that it was sent to the House of Lords since this, and there it was lost What has occurred since to cliaDIc our opinion? Is there any change in the opinion '.lie public? Old Sarum has grown no larger, ant Manchester has grown no smaller, and we have pO ground for any change, except the opinion of Lords. I supported the motion of the noble 1°,( as die friend of reform, but more as tliefrieiidof peace, of property, and of social order (Cheers.) iNo ry'all can contemplate the present state of the country without the greatest anxiety and alarm. I look for- ward to seeing the same state of thing's in Great BritaIn which we saw in Ireland only three years ago. I ap prebend the occurrence of a state of things like that in which we saw agitators s ronger than the magislrateS» an association stronger than the government, Sn'1 .a government powerful enough to be hated, but too we& to be obeyed. (Loud cheers.) I fear that we shaU see in this country the arrival of that state of things 111 which the public authorities may be divided—the ta*" gatherer resisted—public credit slwkcn-property. Jr.. secure—and the whole fabric of society crumbling in'0 rum. I don't fear intimidation, but aii this I do fcjir' It wili be said, let the law take its course, and the disturbers of the public peace." (Hear, hear, tW1*1 the disturbers of the public peace." (Hear, hear, from the opposition benches). Depend upon the law Yotl may as well, like Canute, command the waves of thl! sea to stand still, and not touch his footstool, as app' trie maxims of the quarter sessions to a great nation'1 convulsion. What is the law ? the law has no eyes' no hands; until public opinion has breathed into it thr. breath of life-the law is a dead letter. The govcrn- ment of Eingland are reformers. (Hear, hear.) They are united with the people on this question-. Th?re are but two methods of governing a great community —by public opinion, or by the sword. Any govern- ment which attempted to govern Great Britain by tarCd n I.d would soon find out that there was no battle-sin", iike that which is made out of the ploughshare. HIs impossible for any government in this country tl govern in defiance of public opinion, I call iindei-.stil)Cl a government in New York, supported by popular feel. ing; I can understand a government at Milan, SliP. ported by Austrian bayonets but that any governnit-ri,t can be kept up in England, in defiance of public Op1 :1 l Pilo ir, iD nion, I confess I know nat how to understand. The country is in danger—it may be saved. We may safC it—in our hands is the life or death of the state. only the happiness and peace of tlie country upon us, but its safety, for which we must answer to our own consciences, to the memory of future time5, and to Him who is the judge. (Loiid cheers.) Sir Charles Wetherell said, that after the su bject undergone so recent a consideration in the IIQUSC, an,c: after lie had had the honour of stating his opinion, IC followed that unless he gave way to intimidation, and permitted himself to be degraded for fear of tuniflb rising, sedition, and sedition out of doors, he could not sustain the propiiety of the resolution. Mr. Sheil said they had lately inquired what the Lords would do ? We have now to ask what ought tile house—what ought the mitiister-aid (it is the »iOst important interrogatory) what will the people"<To?"7" First, then, what ought the house to do? Shall jt transfer its confidence from the government to their opponents—from those who may be well accönnted the parents of reform, to those who would affect, to rock, and toss, and dandle it with the hand wIth which they would have strangled it in its birth ?-NO, in that government the house confides. The next question was—what the minister should do ? He shortld not in the storm leave the helm and though the wave should wash overboard, he should cling tc)- tile wheel. (Cheers.)—He should act with vigour and firmness- His patronage should not be bestowed where it would be requited with pei-li(lv,-ttie mitre should not be placed on any Iscariot brow. (Hear, hear, and cheers.) And what will the people do? That was the la»t question. They would enter into a vast, a pacific, and a legitimate confederacy,—preserve the peace but wJlile they showed the knowledge of their rights, they would also display the determination to assert thern* England would demand that her constitution should be given back. To that demand will the Lords be deaf? The first wave had broken on the ramparts that were opposed to it-it would only recede to collect its might, and the second would roll on with a more '01, fearful shock, and a more imperious surge. The Lord' would have too much regard .for.their.interests a" duty to oppose the unanimous will of England, or to expose the coronet and the mitre to be btown off in the hurricane of the popular passions. (Cheers.)
