But the advocates of oases decidedly rotten, ought to be left to the Whigs. We have no occasion for them. All that the Conservatives have fo do with such rotten eases is to break their shell and besmeiar theirhatchers with the foul and ofiFensive contents. What progress the English Conservatives have made during the late registration contests we have Bot at present the .means of knowing. Cqn-sidejring their former' commanding position, they oiight unddubtedlyijk) have made considerable advances; though, if they have only kept their old ground, as we confidently anticipate they have, there will be no serious jreaj^n to complain. Then, as regHrds Ireland and Scotland, which, eincie the introduction of pretended reform, have' here-^ tofore been the^strongholds of its hypocritical prbfessora, any accessions from tne former to the constitutional ranks must, for the present at least,' be inconsiderable; but from the latter, we confess, our ex^ectc^tibns are more sanguine. At the last general election the main drawback to Conservative ascendiancy arose from the; fact that the marked recovery of the Scotch constituencies froih the delirium and extravagance which usudly attend the first years of an extended franchise was basely neutr^zed by the swarms of fflegal and fictitious votes, whereby the lawful electors vi^ere in many places-literally swamped by a corrupt and Wanting faction. The evil, we rejoice to know, is now in the course of being remedied. Ac-cord,ing to the latest accounts, the recent registrations in Scotland, though not yet what they ought to be, perhaps been quite as satisfactory as could be expected. We subjoin a few details. The Conservative gain in the burgrb of Aberdeen, is 125. In Caithness county there is a gain of 19; in Caithness burgh, 24. #^ In Perth city, had it not been for a technical manoeuvre which will likely be . set aside by the Appeal Court, the Conservative gain ^ would have been considerable: as matters stand, the Liberals have it by ^9.. In the Conservative^county of Wigtonwe still keep ahead by an increased liiajority of 83. Pelrth county yields us an addition of" 152, and Ber- wickshire 30. The counties of Lanark, Inverness, Selkirk, and Dumfries, aU of which we already possess, " exhibit," says an Edinburgh paper, " an equallv gratifying result." The same thing may be said of Dumbartonshire, where, at the last election, the Conservative candidate failed by about forty voteis. In the Haddington district of burghs, where the Whiff minority of thirty-one in 1837 was exactly balanced "by the CAonservativc enrolments immediately after the election, a late increase of nine in the small burgh of Lauder gives us now the pre- Eonderance. Greenock has been grievously mismanaged y fhe^ inertness of - its "Conservative Association," which in future must endeavour to be more active. But, certainly, the greatest triumph of all has been won in the metropolitan county of Edinburgh. No fewer than 160 Whig fagots have been struck off from Mr. Gibson Craig's nominal majority; atid this, too, under circumstances which, if the people fail to be thereby convinced of the utter political profligacy of your reform patriots, they deserve to be slaves for ever to the faction which rides and fleeces them. Our readers remembei' the noise that was made last year about fictitious votes in hcotland by that seraphic and salaried Reformer, Mr. Commissioner Hofsman, M.P. for Cockermouth. Well, who should be the chief parties to this disgraceful trans-fftction but Sir John Dalrymple (the said hbn. commis-sioper's uncle)| Mr. Murray, of Henderland (brother of the Roxburgh Lord-Advocate), Sir J. 6. Craig (father of the fagot-bolstered member)^ and lastly, the present Lord Provost of Edinburgh, whose party tampepngs in haying packed the last commission of the peace -to the said Lord-Advocate's mind, have been, rewarded with a baronetcy, ahd.not a little repute. By a colourable smA collusive disposition of certain portions of laiids, for which the supposi^tious purchasers have paid no price and draw no returns, these leading Scotch Whigs, who vaunt so loudly about political punty, have attempted to get up a registration tlaim for some 160head of their party^ dri\dges, most of whom have recently been made justices, and dubbed "worshipful,'' by the grace of the Lord Chancellor. Theiif worships, however, have got a sad down-fall^and^ sadder still, that of their detected patrons. By one fell swoop, theregistering sheriff has swept the whole of these vermin from the roll; thereby laying bare the dirty doings, of the Mid-Lothian Liberals to public contempt and execration, giving Mn Commissioner Horsman a new hobby for the next session, and ultimately restoring the county to Sir George Clerk. This seasonable expo-^ sure will do some good. lord brougham's letter to the scotch reformers. Morning 'Chronicle-^We lliave. copied from, the <^co;�man a correspondence betweenXora Brougham and Mr.Tait, of Edinburgh, who had a.ddressed his lordship with a view to ascertain if he inteik^ed to visit Scotland this year. Lord Brougham answers in the negative, and Observes that he is siire moire advantage vrill follow from confining his exertions to his Dlace in Pariiaitnent,wher he is always to be found. His lordshjii) dpeShot, however, part with his Scotch friends vrithioutfi^ the benefit of a lecture. He-sets putvirith telling them not to imaging that he conceives the: present to be a; time when their most strenuous exertions can be dispensed, with. It is now clear (says his lordship,) if anything can be clear, that for further iniprovement in their coi^ditioii the people must looi^ to their own efforts.
