He wetild take up no more of their.iimeth-.jii was necessary once moft to express hi.s gratiloi^ and take leave, after wishing thein all lieaJili nn^ happiness, and all other blessings neresssry'tlleretm. Alderman \Vooi> was loudly cheered; Hecunlii not suflicientiy express his gratitude for thediiitin-guished manner in Miich iliey had pUced him on the poll, having by their ekertions given hiin sncii a superiority over his honourable friends. It was to him a proof th-^t they had well considered Xh-t niatterj and had not judged without the utmost discrimination,^who had proved them-*lves ino�i tit fo repre�ent theni in Parliament. Me iwoiild always endeavour to deserve their confidence by h * asstriuily in watching over llieir interests. He wa-t the more gratifted by the majority of liis poll, �� it had not been acqntred r�r increased liy trick y froi� hinniself the entire -superiority of the iioll bf two votes only. He could not retire fiom Ihe hustings-, without testifying lo the honourable and useful exertions of his late ColleayneM while ir, .Parliament.-(Applause, mingled with kisses.) - Tnere were persons hissing on the husiings who were not Liverymen.-(More MfSes and apf>/ttiise.J - He would ask those who were hissing if his lale colleagues hud not done theil' duty fdi'hfully ? - {.�ipptint^e.) - He was about to state tliat the gentle-inen to whom he had alluded had done t leir duty z-r-alously.-[The same interruplion as liffure,] - lie challenged ail England, he challenged tlie House of Commons itself, to disprove' him. Let any one say if they could, if they dared; ^lial ihoie Gentlemen were not constantly in their plai-,--, early and late; and if ever they had flinched from any of their Pjrliatiientary duties, however 'irksome or laborious. He had always spoken fairly of every one, to whatever side persons migbt belong; and if the hissers could disprove his assertion, why did they not stand forward and do so't - [Applause.\ He assured the Livery he wns not going into the political condncl or views of those gentlemen ; they were already before the Livery. But he who could best witness it would persist in assuring theni lhat those persons had zealously attended to and discharged their duly early and late in the House of Commons.-fPartial hisses.)-]f the hissing did not cease, he would stay there all night, or else he would have the hustings cleared.-f Applause.J- There was an individual behind interrupting him with whom he had an account to settle, and he would immediately do it. He w,is only anxious to convey the sense he felt of their ktndness to him. He would always be strenuous to serve' iliem. No exertions of his shoald be spared; no- lime wasted in doing thi-s. His attenlion to his parliamentary duties should be, as they bad been, unremitting. In giving his.�ote, iie jvould not be influenced or intimidated by any circumstances ; lie would do it conscientinuirly. If the Livery did not approve of any vole of his, they would only have to call a Common Hall and say so, and he would resign his seat to some one who should be more likely to please them. His ambition was to be useful ro the public. Their manner of placing him on the poll could never be forgotten. Their esteem was all the rewdtd he souyhl, all that he asked.- [Loud applause.) Mr. W.ilTHMAN advanced, and said, that he was only going to address them for a second, for the purpose of requesting a fair hearing for the son of the worthy Baronet. It might appear presumptuous in him lo make such an appeal, but lie litid been solicited to do so by Mr. Curtis himself, or he would not have attempted it, having no reason \a believe that he held such an intluence over them as that imputed to him by the son of the worthy Buronet.-[Applause.) Mr. Curtis advanced, but not being nble to get a hearing, he pointed to the poll with a gialitird look, and gave the lead while the Baronet's friends guve three cheers. The Lord Mayor next returned thanks, but was inaudible except to those nearest hint. He was proud of the honour of being appointed lo represent them iu Parliament, for winch he was anxious to return thanks. He made his acknowledgments in succession for tbe kindness he had per ceived from the Genilenieii of the Corporation, the Livery, his own Coimiittees, and the Sherills. They might think it extraordinary, but he .was proud of his situation, low as it was, on, the poll. His Hou. Friend liad well expressed tbe necessity of London being represented by merchants, aintyti^ whom none could'be better qualified for the duly than the Hou. Gentleman himself. He wished that the representation contained more persons of his character, who could discharge his ptiblic duties with such credit aud honour tu himself,, and such advantage to the public. For himself he would keep them no longer than was necessary, to wish them health and prosperity, and return inein his sincere thanks for the honour they had done tum. Alderman Waithman then advanced amid aci clamattvns which continued some minutes. Wheu'' the noise had sub.'idedj he assured the Gentlemea of the Livery, that if he had been defeated through any folly or misconduct of his own in conduciiug the election, or if he thought his defeat had pru-ceeded from the lossof their gpod opinion, n^t only would it be a matter of the mosl serious uDcasiness to him, but it would affect his mind in a seriuu.-t manner, which would nol easijy be got over- plausej-but he met them in as calm a state of mind, and with as much tranquillity asat any period of his \\(e.-{Aj->plfiiise.)-li was aiway.s uupleAsant both for a speaker and his hearers, th.tt he should ipend many wotds npon himself, but sumetimes be was reduced to that situation which re,ifd,ered it absolutely uecessary.
