THE COMMITTEE of the WIDOWS* FRIEND and BENEVOLENT SOCIETY, in returning their cordial thanks to a beiievolent Public for the ready aiiiwer tbey have made to their urgent call for aid iu favour of the distressed Poor of the Afelrupplis, think it due to Ihe kindness of their friends to offer the following statement of the mod* in which siicb aid is at present applied. They are engaged in relieving upwards of &00 cases, consist, iugof more than 2,000 individuals, by personal visits, by the gift of money, potatoes, soup, coals, mattresses coni-poseil of straw in ihe cheapest covering, blankets, and rugs ; articles either of so mean a description, or so stamped with Ihe mark of the Society, as hardly to admit of being pledged or seized for rent, but fvbicb must �f necessity be applied to the purpose for,.w)uch they are bestowed. In cases of dangerous sickness, .both clerical and medical aid has been ebtained, by which it is hoped both the spiritual and temporal 'maladies of the sufferers have been effectually relieved. Still much and pungent distress presents itself to the inqitiries of the Committee; and when it is remembered that iBOst of the persons relieved communicate their success to neighbours labouring under similar disiivss, who, in Iheir (urn, become both receivers and communicants of (be- benevolence of this Society, Ihe public will not be surprised that sixty new case* should have so-licled the attention of tbe Committee at their last Weekly Meeting, most of which were of that character of distress aa to call for the immediate aid of the Society, The'Committee, therefore, solicit not only pecuniary aid, but cuntributions of clothes ahd linen, and indeed any nrti-cl� that may be deemed serviceable to tbe poor.

N'> maa, he trotted, i:otild regard so atrocious a britWe as the assatsination of the Duke of Berry hi Ptiri�, and thai which, if the rumotlr of tlie town were correct, was projected ag�int his Mnjesl^'g Afinis-ters, uith greater abhorrence th-an he felt. Buch acts, too, were as absurd ei they wt*e atrocious. If the murderers proceeded upon a principle �f vengeance, they arrogated to themselves an attri-h�te of the divinity-revenge, VengeantJe is mine, sailh the Lord." If they proceeded tnjon a principle af political animosity, iuiothWig could be more absurd than their conduct. Soch a fifeliiig, however, unfortunately might have arisen fro'm conteonplHtiofl of political even!?. It �;rs well aiftj strongly remarked h.y a Noble Friend of his in ttie debate oo � Bill whiirh �ub�Vqneutly bermiit; r hi�v,thflta meaSDxe-lehich had for its effWct to de-[�priv� (he people of tliistsanntiy of ujeefin^- freety ' and expressing iheir sentiinents in publit-, might lead to private usfassitiatino--. The Earl of LaudeBDAXB here suddenly inlfrriiii!-ed the Noble Earl, and said he could not .�vi)^tiou. -(Loud cheers J-and he was so shorksil iit hearing such a doctrine avowed, that he could not aruid expressing his disapprobation of it-f Hear, J Earl GaoSYENotl resumed, and said iliiit \vi Noble Friend had quite mistaken his meanini;. Far from his mind be such an impression as that any circumstances could justify sndreadful a crime. His sole object 1ii alluding to recent events in Paris and at home, wds to point out llie probable effects of feelings highly exasperated by the contemplation of supposed political injuries, and thence to deduce tbe necessity of making some concession lo the wishes of the public, and to entrevii: the reconsideration of the principles on which tlie government had hitherto been administered. Ije was also extremely desirous that a distinction sl-oulJ be drawn between tl;e great body of the people ami " some knots of desperate men, whose character disgraced the cooniry. To such men nolhiutc should be Conceded ; but he fervently desired tiiat soni'i ainelioralinn should be made in the priiiciplts of government, such as was desired universally by the' loyal and thinking part of the nation. He did not wish to revive subjects of ancient dispute, but he could not avoid referring to the Declaration published by the Allied Powers against the former head of the French Government, and which put him otit of tlie pale of civilizsd society. He had ever felt strongly hostile to that individual, but he m1*o felt strongly when he first perusedythat Declaration, for the evident construction of it was to expose that person to the worst consequences of private passions. With respect to the recent measures'pursued by His Majesty's Ministers, it was evident that they had mistaken the state of the public ttiind. Tliey had represented this country as eonvulsed from one end of it to the other, while they regarded Ireland as altogether ' tranquil. This favourable opinion of Ireland, bov*ever, did not protect her from the operation of the severe mpn-sures enacted at the commeucemettV of tins Se's-sion ; but the result shewed how errnneou;^ was the opinion of the Ministers, This country hns enjoyed a state of undisturbed repose, while Ireland has suffered considerable alarm and agitation. The state of the empire, however, altogether was not such as required the maintenance of a large force. A coercive system had been too long observed, and he hoped that his Majesty's Ministers would at length put an end to it for ever. 'I'he Earl of LAUDEEDALEsaid, he was extremely happy that he bad ibterrupted his Noble Friend, as it hiid given him an opportunity of making an explanation which could not but prove satisfactory to ' alibis ftiends.-fJtJear, hear.) The Bill was then read the third time, and passed. SLAVE TRADE. The Marquis of LansooWN rose, and said, that as the present was probably the lust opportunity he should have during this Piirliameut of iioticinsj' si subject of extreme interest to the caqse of fiiima-nity, and to the character of this countrj', namel_\', the diabolical trufBc which still desolated the coa^f.'i of Africa, he begged leaved lo inquire ;)f il'.e Noble Secretary for Colonial Affairs, whether any defiaitive regulations had been ^dujited with respect m the mixed Commission which had beeti appoiiiled by the combined Goveriynents of Great Britain and Portugal, fur the adjudication of ve^ eels taken in the act of trading in slaves ? uisn, ivhe-ther, in point of fact, any a|)poiiilineut had hferi made by the Government of Portugal, and if the Commission was now acting ?  - Earl BathuRST, after a short interval, replied, that in point of fact no person had been nominated, by the Government of Portugal to join the English Commissioner on the coast of Africa, but at arraiiyenient had been entered into with tlie Poriu-gu.ese Government that the won-appointinent t.f a Coininisxioner should be considered tn the li^^hi of a vacancy alter an appnintment made ; -and coiit,e�, qnently that the Commission, in pursuance of thu le/ius of the Treaty which Conteoiplafed such 8!� � event as a vacancy uot aUerf up> >" *>i**^ activity. The M.aiquis of LansdoWN said, that iJiis stale... ment was extremely s-atisfactory, as the activity of the Commission would prevent much iiicoovt'iiience and loss, from making Gompensatiiiu to the PorlH-^ guege ves*eU which had Iwen takem and weie of necessity dismissed iii consequence ofahe no;i,txr�i-.' -en.CB of a judicature to jsry them.
