[From " The Leeds Itiercuri/."] , On Thursday morning, ten men, egcorted by a detrtchment of the 4th dragoons, were brought into this town, oti their route to 'Vork, charged with riot and assault. Our reideri are aware, that there has existed, in certain parts of the'tlothin^ district, in this Riding, a coinbiiialion aitiohg the blanket weavers, called the Union, which hk� fi^ed a minimum of wages, below which no loeifiber pf ihe Union is to be allowed to work, and who further insist oa iiBposin^ certain liiuit!) ou the qaau' inerisnir- �vii.. biicces.*, ami in aiiMiiC j two hours llie mob were dis(,ersed, with,ml lunn;--� cinnioit'ed any miscliief.

The Socitly has lalely published uni.rlli Irset, compritiiig a .sermon pre.iclied by the {{..v. tJa'vid Bojfue, D.D. in 1SI3, three years before the formation of a Peace, Socieli/. We regret that our limils ito not allow us to jiive it entire, and it ia difficult lo k>:lect any part from a work, the whole of wliich in sn rxcellem ; liiit the followiiig^striking iiluslr-dtioii of !l>e crt'i tt< likely to be produced by the practice oi' pacitiir principles, is so complete a reply to a very fiopulur objection, tliut we hasten to lay il before our ieai!er�.

What infi woiild such conduct have upon the-people of that country >   Would it leave any stitigs behind Hi their soul-.No.   It would concilialS" the esteent and affection of all. Tell them after this, -Biiiain wishes to injure�J'ou."-" No," they would say, " it cannot be; it is impossible th^t the people of th;;t land should desire to do us harm." Command thein to buckle on their armour and wage w,ar with thf English.   They would answer, " We cannot light wilh ihem:  the weapons' would drop from our, Iwnds: we love them too well to hnti them : cnn-tiniie in peace."  If any slate would act in this way toils, neighbours, it would have no enemies: the sound of war would not be heard iu ifts dominions. -fPiymouth I'apci.J
