The verycircum-stance of receiving a Second time such a distinction si their hands, demanded of him a return, which he was afraid that he should not be able lo offir. On the last uceasion he allowed that the meeting bad passed off well; but the Chair, man was not al all the cause of it. It had passed off highly to his satisfaction : but when he considered the ohjcct for which the meeting had been called, and recollected that it bad been composed of persuHS tliSering rnitred in some slight shades on political snhjccls, but differing ouly as men nf free minds always must differ oo such topics; united, however, on all great constituliooal poiiits^uiiiled in their ad-rairatiou of the Constitution as eslabli�hed at tlnf their wishes to establish civil and. religious liberty throughout the world-united in their deteruiiiialion to support by every constitutioual means the rights and privileges of the people-united iti their approbation of ihe principles of Mr. Fox, as best calculated to support the welfare, happiness, and honour of Ihe country-united to pay a tribute uf respect to bis memory ; and in the eloquent language of his esteemed fiicnd, .Mr. John Taylor, lo willingly paused; for if he did not Ibeu pause, he did not "bieh is one's own by the Constitniion, and forbear.02 BW when he should, especially as he saw himself aNo sup- fneroach on that of others.

Charles James Fox, the Fox tlub of the county of Norfolk had ibeir annual grand dinner, in SI. Aii-drew's-hall, Norwich, in commemoration of Ihe day. The tickets issued on the occasion amounted to 460; and, as no room in the city was capable of containing so large a number of guests, the Mayor was kind enough lo offer ihem Ihe use of the Town-hall for their meeting. The offer was joyfully accepted, and for some days previous to that on which the dinner was held, the stewards were employed iu superintending the boarding and matting of the ball, and in overlooking the other preparations. On Sunday evening the Duke of Sussex, accompanied by the Earl of Albemarle. Sir R. Ferguson, Mr. Coke, Mr. Mac-donald,aiid others, arrived at xMr. Aldeimau Foster's, with whom they remained till yesterday morning. During the whole of Monday, strangers kept pouring into Norwich variops quarters of the r *�* Son, 190, Pi�et4illy. To be viewFil two days pn-crding , ,. ^dofR. Undsay, Esq.

And now, supported as Ibe Chair was, on the right hand by an illustrious branch of Ibe House of Brunswick-{Loud applause)-ever mindful of the principles wflirb sealed bis family on Ibe throne-{Ajijilume repeated)-on Ihe other, by au individual placed in Ibe first situation in the county (the High Sheriff, Sir W. VVyndham Dallinc), who, high aud honourable as that situation was, difl honour lo il by j^lie manner iu which he discharged iis duties-(Cheert kno ported by such a nuroerongand respectable assembly as waa never before met together, considering ibe rank, Ibe property, Ihe talent, and Ihe respectabilily ef those who composed it, all looking lo Ihe Cbair with cheering counlenancss, and all contributing to the good humour, and what was n still more essential point, to the utility of the meeting. He was not going to play the hypocrite, and to say that be regretted being placed in the Chair; by no means; il was a subject of pride and exultation to him; but be was going to say Ihis-that when placed in il, hewae nothing without Ibeir co-operation. He therefore called upon them for (heir indulgence, askid Ihem la forgive any errors which be might conimil (be ought rather lo- have said, the many blunders which he should commit), and entreated them (o believe him to be musi siu. cere in his wish to pay iniliviilual attention to all present, aud anxious not 10 give offence by any omission of respect.- (/.eud cheering)-Having said thus much regarding himself, lie should now say a few words on the toast which he bad lo propose to Ihem. ' Last year, as it was the first meeting of any considerable extent srh'teh had been held upon the su'or ject, he had felt it -big duty lo enter at Imglb both into Ihe public and Ihe private character of Mr. Fox. Now that this meeting had lieen established, and as be trusted, firmly established, that it did became as it were a rallying point to the friends of the constitution, and an altar to liberty never to be violated, it would be useless for him again to enter into those topics. Of Ibe private character of Mr. Fox he should not say a single word: those who knew him best, if their feelings would permit them, could say the most; but if they wished 10 form an opinion of his public dharac-ter, he would say," Look to the measures of those who were opposed lo him; see the state to which they have reduced the empire; view the country as it was, and as it is; consider Ihe changes which have been made in the consliiulion since you last met for Ihe same purpose with that for which you are now assembled, and reflect upon Ibe revolulion wbicb has taken place in it since you last met together in (liis very hall. If they would consider the general discontent which was now sullenly and silently prevading the country, arising, not from disaffection-for Ihe people of England were well affected to the Crown and Constitution-but from a system of mal-adininislmtion, and from distress which could clearly be traced lo Ihe pressure of ovrrwhelming taxalioii-r if they would recollect that the wauls, the wishes, and the distresses of the people were met by notbingelse but force, and were not even attempted to heredressed by conciliation and good government-if t1iey would reflect on the recent extraordinary addition made to the standing army in time of peace, and the deleetable nature of the late measures, into the details of which lie would not enter, as he was justified in calling them a violation of the Consliiulion, since they had been admitted to be such by the Miuistersof the Crown-measures thai were must coercive and restrictive, and as congenial to the Congress of Aix-la-Chapelle, and pleasing 10 the Princes uf Ihe Holy Alliance, as Ihey weie uncongenial and grievous to free-born Englishmen.-(iond. cheering.)-If Ihey would ponder well npoo all Ihw topics, he would ask lliein, could such Bills have been enacted, or, as some justify tbein on the ground of necessity, could the necessity for enacting Ihem have existed, bad the advice of Mr. Fox been followed, and his principles steadily acted on ? -(Loud eheert.)-He bad nothing more to add al present, than to propose that Ihey should drink in solemn silence " The Memory of C. J. Fox." A song was then sung by Mr. John Taylor, beginning The warrior claims his meed of praise, And lives in martial story ; But for the Patriot let ns raise Sublimer strains of glory: This day. Old Euglantfs darling child Dame Nature kindly gave us; Then Freedom on bis cradle smiled, Aud breathed the power to save us.

To talk of constitutions, ,of rights, of privilci;,'*, was, he was aware, now deemed vulgar.
