After a series of garbled and unfair stale-iiieiils of the Scheme, he has proceeded to give, what bis va. iiiiy indnrcs him to think will bea finishing blow, the denuii-tiaiion of his individual disapprobation. The Scheme is be. turf the Public; and with the knowledge thatj iu every poiut  calculation, it is more advantageous tu the adventurer than I lie last or any of the late Lotteries, we set the utmost i H'orN of roalevoleuce at defiance, and court the miniitest investisjation of its plan and principle. The Public will prrhips think that they have a suiScient clue to unravel \hif proceeding, when they are informed that, before this i.riiiery was taken, we were under the painful necessity of r.-fiisinir to adniit a cen-iain party into the coalition we had 'nrmcd. This objection did not arise from any personal ''fctlin;) on our parts, but solely from our knowledge of un. |.|.nBjnt and eiiharrtusing circwmslances, which it would hni he dtlicate in us to particularize, although they were i.f siifijcirnt noloriety at the time to render it imperative on l.oiiD Liverpool to refuse that party's bidding for the l.olicry.-We are the Public's most obliged and Obedient Servants, HAZARD and Co., Royal Exciiange.

TO THE GENTLEMEN, CLERGY, AND FREEHOLD. ERS OF THE COUNTY OF MIDDLESEX. Gentlemen, ISHOULD be unworthy of the honourable slalion in which yon kindly placed me during four successive Parliament!!, if I hesitated distinctly to avow the principles on which 1 once more presume to solicit your independent suffrages. I yield to no man in firm att�chment to Civil and Religious Liberty, blended as it immutably is with our admirable Constitution ; and I declare myself, in Ihe truest sense of the words, the Friend of the People, for the cause of the people can never be separated from the cause of their King and country. Acting on these principles in the conscientious discharge of my public duty, I have, to the utmost of my power, resisted the progress of sedition and blasphemy. I have sap. ported those measures which subsequent events prove to have been indispensably necessary for the preservation of the Constitution ; and in the anxious promotion of all real and prarlical iiiiprovement in our Laws and Constitution, I have uniformly opposed all vague, visionary, and dangerous pro. jects of reform. It has been my constant endeavour, during the last fourteen years that 1 have been your Representalive, faithfully, zealously, and diligtnlly to promote yonr real interests, by devoting my personal attention to the arduous and important duties of this metropolitan County. I therefore confidently trust, that hy your votes and inle-rest you will sanction my -parliamentary conduct, and that your early attendance at the poll will replace me ia the dis. linguished situation to tehich it is the highest object of my ambition to aspire. In this anxious hope I have the Ktuiour to be, with the greatest respect. Your obedient and faithful Servant, WILLIAM MELLISH. Bush-hill Park, March 20,1820. state of the poll. W.

THIRD DAY-(Concluded.) the king V. hont and others. Jonathan Andrews examined by Mr. scarlett.-I reside at Endham Hall, near Manchester; I was head-constable in Manchester in August lasl; I have some property there; I was on the ground about 12 o'clock on the 16tb of August; it was arranged that a line of constables should exteud from the bouse where Ihe Magistrates were to the hustings, or as near as possible to them; when 1 went tu Ihe ground there was a line of constables formed from Mr. Buxton's honse to the hustings, wbich were then erected; shortly after the hustings were removed several yarfig backvvards; I took no-tice of the different parties aa they arrived ; they inarched in regular military order, aa I have seen soldiers march; about every fourth or fitlli man appeared to have some command over Ihe rest; they were five or six abreast; a great number had sticks, and many carried them as a soldier car. rivs his musket, that is erect upon the left shoulder; I saw a great number on the ground wilk slicks, but they did not carry them iu that form; I saw many flagu aud caps of liberty; when each division arrived there was tre-meuduus shouting by those who were on and round the hustings; there was also waving of sticks in the air; t was near enough to the hustings lb recognize Jones, whom 1 know, but I did nut hear what he said. I was upon the ground when Mr. Hunt arrived-ifr^a carriage. There was then an immense crowd of people assembled, and the crowd which accompanied him was also immense. I have before seen as many people assembled together as I on that day saw. I think there were between 60,000 and 70,000 persona present, they consisted mostly of labouriug people; there were very few respectable' persona present. 1 conceived so large a meeting could have no other tendency thai) to overawe Ihe respectable inhabitauta of the lo.wn aud its anthori-ties. The people appeared tu have come from a distance. It was a very dusty day; I think it was'a warm day. Cross-examined by Mr.'barrow.-Junes was one of the first on the hustings. 1 do not know that he was employed as a mechanic to erect the hustings. I csbnot tell whether be was directing the crowd nut to press .too close or not. Cross-examined by Mr. Hnnt.-1 thinkit waa the division that bad a banner with " Equal Repr�iientation or Death,'* upon it, that marclied wjfb their sticks shouldered. It was a black flag; I saw them' ou-the^groiindj the sticks were very large and thick. The peuplt^ who atteBded the meeting appeared to me have come generally with sticks. I said I thought the Bieetitig amounted to 60,000 or; 70,000 persons. , The sticks J saw were not sneh as Igetienilly see people use in walking-they were larger; 1 caaiiut say whether they were as long as walking sticks; I was not near enough to judge exactly. The size of the sticks varied (Haterially, according lo ihe size of the men. I think they were generally four or five feet long; they were not all as thirk as my wrist. I do nut know from uhrnce the psrty hrnring the black flag came. Tlicy were marching a breast; 1 do nut say �Uat every m.m had bis stick sliouldernl; but llnry carried them generally in tliat position. Some of the cuiniihtndi'ra. also had sticks. I think that division consisted uf 3,000 or 4,000 men; they had sticks generally. I cannot tell how many sticks were am(>ng the whole party; I cannot swear that half of the party, pr that one in four had slicks; I am positive there was more than one in ten or one in five so armed.. 1 have already stated,- lhat when they came upon the eround they ahuutei), atid waved the slicks in the air. I had no particular companion on that day ; we had one hundred constables on Ihe field, hut t caunol point out any one who saw iliis at Ihe same time that 1 did. After the party had waved Iheir sticks, they marched towards the hustings in Ihe same order tiiey bad come upon the field. I heard no ordef of " Shoulder arms " I saw no use made of those sticks in attackiug the cuustables; 1 saw no such attack made. 1 saw other divisions arrive, who appeared tafaa,re sti(:k9 alsit.^ liiey; might have . ipad$..i)se..of their stilts withoHt my mreing them. I was cbiefly^ilh the Magistrates, and therefore had out so good an'oppoitunity of -seeing what took pUce. I saw very few women, and very faw girls indeed. The space of grouud was so large tint I could not make an estimate of the number of females. I was near the Magistrates' boOse when you arrived. I was not at any time near enough to the hnstiugs lo hear what you said. 1 saw neither firearms, swords, or. any other offensive weapon, but slicks with the crowd. I saw no per-son that day but at the infirmary. I saw no person struck, nor did I see auy of the constables make use of their staves. I had no occasion to make u.>ie of mine. Thomas Hardtnan examined by Mr. LiTTLEDALE.-I was a special constable on the 16lh of August; when 1 first got to the ground (nbont 11 o'clock] there was but a few people assembled; soon after several parties came in in regular mi-litary order, carrying sticks. Those lhat I saw carried them in the left hand as soldiers do muskets, and seemed to have command over the others. They marched towards the hustings, and were cheered as they went up. I heard two people speak from the hustings before the whole party arrived. The first speech wis, " There has been an order given to stand six yards back from the stage, otherwise yon will afford your enemies an opportunity of rushiug in with their cavalry and all their corruption." The other speech was soon after, I know not which was first, it was as follows-" If you had ever so stout-hearted a leader, you will do no good unless you stand firm to your post."-Both these speeches were made before Mr. Hunt arrived. Jones spoke one of the speeches, the first I believe. I know not who spoke the other. 1 saw Mr. Hunt come up in a barouche, attended by a large crowd. I was then at a distance, and could Hot judge how many came up with him. He got upon the hustings, which were at thai time removed eight or ten yards farther from where the constables stood, than they were on their first erection. I think there were 60,000 or 70,000 persons present. The alarm in Manchester was very great then. Cross-examined by Mr. Barrow.-1 have au uncle named J^mes Hardman, a brewer, Jones was some lime since em. played by him a.<i au engineer and millwright. I do not know that Jones was employed to erect the hustings. I was between 15 and 20 yards from the hustings when he spoke. A Mr. Green was with me, and also heard him. 1 do not know any body else who was present at the time. Mr. Greeo ia here. 1 think the words are correct, as Mr. Ellis, who was near me, wrote them down. 1 am not podtiye that' it was Jbnss who made the first speech, but I believe lhat be did. Cross-examined by Mr. Hunt.-I am a dry-salter, and acted as a special constable on that day. I rau'l say that a Reporter, standiug wilhiu five yards of the hustings and lak. ing notes, is likely to be more correct than myself, I saw the Oldham division march in in regular order. I never saw a copy of the indictment against you. The expression of one of Ihe men, wbo appeared to be a leader, attracted my attsntion to the Oldham division. The commanders had sticks, which.they carried in their left hands as soldiers do muskets. 1 did not see any of the men make use of their sticks. I saw no black flag. The sticks were very large ones, bat not so long or so large as a mnsket. They were of different sizes. Some were three or four feet long, aud about half as thick as my wrist. I saw no persons injured that day. I remained on the ground till you were taken to the New Bailey. 1 accdcipanied Mr. Hay to London. Mr. Hunt-did yon give the same evidence before bis Majesty's Ministers as you have given here? Witness.-Dues your Lordship think 1 ought to answer that question? Mr. Justice Bayley.-Yon may answer it. Witness.-I did. I am nut a magistrate. Mr. Hunt:-Did you compare the evidence given to Ministers with whai yon now say? Witness-I do not liiink proper to answer thai qiiestioa. Mr, Justice Bayley.-I think you may say whether the evidence given on both occasions becoirecl. Mr. ScABLETT.-^^I object to this question. Mr. Justice Bayley (to Mr. Hunt)-Do you mean to con. tradict the evidence of this witness ? Mr. Hunt-If 1 can shew that be has equivocated, I think I have a right to do so. Mr. Justice Bayley-You may ask any question tending to invalidate the teaiimony of the witness. Mr. Scarlett-I object to this question. Mr. Hunt-if he gave difTerent testimony at dinPercnt times, 1 wish to know where and how he corrected his opinions. Mr. Scarlett-Tlie Defendant has no right lo inquire into what has taken place elsewhere, unless he means to contradict the witness; it is under a pledge of this sort lhat such questions are.allowed. But how can the witneFs be contradicted iu this instance, wiilrant calling some of his Majesty's Ministers into Court, wbich cannot now be done? If Ihe witness says that he has nut given the same evidence iu both places, then the inference will be against his testimony, and I shall have no opportunity of shewing the con-trary. If Mr. Hunt can coniradict the witness in any legi. timate form, I have no objection to his going ou. Mr. Justice Bayley-1 am of opinion, lhat a general question of this kiud might be asked, not for the purpose of being received as evidence, or of contradicting a wilot!!�, but ill order to go to his credit, and of seeing if bis evidence was substantially the same. Mr. Hunt said, lhat sooner than put any question likely to disturb the verdict when given, he would waive the question. Mr. Scarlett-Don't be afraid, Mr. Hunt; if you are asquitted, the Crown will nut move for a new trial. Mr. Justice Bayley said, lhat if he' received what was, or rejected what was not evidence,'lh; Crown would certainly be at liberty to move for a new trial. Mr. Hunt waived bis question, aud the examination proceeded. Captain Uwly, of the MaiSchester yeomanry cavalry ia a cousin of mine. He was on duty on that day. Re-examined by Mr Littledale-The expression which attracted his attention tu the Oldbaoi division was used by a man who carried a slick; he said, "who said we Oldham lads durst nut come here to day ?" I heard uolhing else. Joseph Green examined by Mr.SerjeantHoLLOCK.-1 was at St. Peter's area on the 16tb of August, in company with Mr.Hardman. About the time 1 got there Ihe first body arrived. They marched in the ai:ray lhat soldiers generally march through a town; in what is called column, I think. I was on the ground^ until Mr. Hunt was taken from thestage. Varions other bodies arrived after that 1 have first mentioned. They all iaarched,iiearly in the san^e manner. Thrre -were also many wlio came' iui'ividually. Some of the bodies had music. A carl caitia npoii the- ground nearly at the same time with the first body, and that 1 think was Ihe only hustings. Mr. Hardman aud myself had been ananging aiiiie of constables from the cart to the Magistrates' buuiie. lu a short lime the cart was removed about six yards further from the constables. I should say that before this removal the Itn.-. of constables did not rcacb close lo the cart. The parties im they arrived formed round the carl; 1 heard no word of csiti-maud given; I saw no muskets, but some of theiti fi�i! sticks ; 1 heard a abort address from a person on (he hustings whom tdid not then know, but �horn I have since been told is named Jones; 1 do not know bis person.-[Here witness repealed the first speech mentioned by last witness " an order has been given," ice.]--Those words were lahcn down hy Mr. Ellis, partly from my dictatitiii aud parity from Mr. Hardman's; in my opinion the inening wa� calculated to excite the most alarming sensations in the mn'.ii of the inhabitants ; it certainly appeamd to me far more a general rising uf the neighbourhood than of a incrtiui; for any peaceable purpose, and e.'specially for ilclibciHiimi ; I conceived deliberation iinpossildc ; they were l�y far -toj great a body for persons at the extremity to lieur iihat was said in the centre; I estimated those who f..rmi-il the riuK, who shouied, and who seemed to take a lively iiitcrpd in llie proceedings of Ihe day, at about 40,000. lu ronti i)ntHce of .nwhal I had sceOj .1 joined in an afBdacitI nia ir;ili-b, 1 understood, though I did not bear it from lU*vr li}-*', lim undoubted testimony should be had ofwhullmik i.-lace, un.l this was Ihe first of the procccdiiisia. 1 did iml lUcii fcnou/ Mr. Henry Horton, a Reporter for 77<e Sew Tiinea, London. I have no recollection of hiie bavin* been ihere. Crcss-examiiiad hy Mr.'Hunt-I am h miiiuf;<ruirer. It was Mr. Moore, one of the principal constables of Itie Iiiwi;, who communicated to me the wish of the Alajistrales - Mr. Ellis most have been near me when 1 banded him my pocket-book. 1 did not say, Ellis, take my book, ahii write down those words you have heanl," as he admitln! that he had not heard them. 1 was Buruui^lireeve from 1816 to 1817. I remember many meetio-�s during U-..it time; they all attracted my atjentiou, but one niori; than the rest certainly. It was the meeting of .the lOiii of March, 1817. It was not any one being killed ihut attracted my altenlion. There wus no one killed at that meeting; it was called the lilanket Meeting. 1 do not kMi.v� lhat any one was killed between Rlanchestcr and Sioi kjioi f. I saw no arms on the 16th August; I saw no slicks sliuu!-drred. 1 was not personally insulted on that day, nor did 1 see any other respectable person insulted. I icmenibrr a large meeting held in January, 1819,at which you presided ; I cannot call it large, compared with that on the Idlli An. gust ; 1 saw several larger meetings thun that ui: the lOih of March. I do not recollect hearing of any actual violence committed by the meeting in January. 1 Witnes.sed your pasiingfrom that meeing by the exchange. I did not see the meeting break up. 1 do not know ilial you diuid together on that day. 1 saw the hnsliiigs fall, hul 1 don't know from what cause. 1 said the car! of which the hustings first consisted was .soon after removed. I do not pretend to say that there was one cart or more, but I saw the hustings removed. I saw no planks. I know Matthew Cooper. I always thought him a very res^tectnbte man. I have since heard that he wa� at the meeting as a reporter. 1 have heard that a Mr. Horton alto attended iuMhat capacity. 1 do not know if their evidence varied.from mine, but I have spoken to. the sense uf the words I heard. 1 never professed lo swear to the exact words. I swear that I have stated the purport of the words; I cannot call it the senior; I could not make sense of the words " the cavalry and all Iheir corruption." After your capture I saw one person who ' bad suffered uu lhat occasion. Ae-examlDed by Serjeant HULLOOK.-The meeting iu Ja. nuary was not to be compared to lhat un the I6tb August in any of its circumstances. The people who attended the former did not go iu bodies. I was twice at that meeting, and saw Mr. Hunt each lime. He is not connected with the town. I think that he first appeared there in January. 1 think that while in town,he remained wilh Mr. Johnson. John Ellis, examined by Mr. - Littledalk.-I am a bookseller in Manchester. I was a special constable on the 16lh August. 1 went to Petersfield about eleven on the 16th of August, and saw the diiferent parties come up with flags. I took down some of the inscriptions on the fl.igs. On a cap of liberty was " Annual Parliamenis and Universal Sufl'rage, Vote by Ballot, and, Success to the I'e. male Reformers of Stockport;" on a flag underneath, " No Corn Laws;" on a black flag, " No Borouijhinongering- Uoiie and be Free-Equal Representation or Death;" " This is Ihe Saddleworlh, Lees, and Musley Union ;"''oii the reverse," No Corn Laws;"" Taxation without representation is unjust and tyrannical." On unuther flag, " Labour is the source of wealth ; Roylou Feinile Union." On a flag with a pike on the end, " Annua! l^arliaments;" iu the centre were, the rose, thistle, and shamrock; undei-that, " Election by Ballot;" on the reverse waa a figure i.f Britannia, "The rights of man," "No corn laws," <' Ni^ Combination Acts," " Oldham Union." . On a red Heig wiiU green borders, " Let us ifie like men and not be .sold hia slaves ;" reverse, " Liberty is the birtbrighi of man." Tlii* flag was, 1 believe, inscribed " Middleton." The nc.tt was * cap of liberty aud flag; inscription on the r;ip, " Hnnt and Liberty ;" on the flag, " Major Cartwriglii's Bill." In tlie centre was an emblem of Justice, with scales and sword nn. der it. " Election by Ballot;" reverse, " .4onnal Parlia. raents." Ou a blue flag, " Unity and Sircnglh ;" riiverse, " Liberty and Fraternity." Green fl.ig, Parlianitaia Annual ;" reverse, " SuflFrsge Universul." White fljg, " Universal Suffrage, Annual Parliaments, and Eleciiun liy Ballot." I saw several other flags, but ilid not lake do� ii their iuscriptiona. Before Air, Hunt arrived, 1 lieard a prr-^ son speak from the hnstiugs. I u-as uitli .Mr. Hurdman and Mr. Green. I did nut hear what was saitl, but i copied it down from Ihe dict.ition of Messrs. Hardman andGieeii.- [Here witness read the speech uienti<)ned by I'le tvio last wit-neb-ei]- I heard ii myself, but imjwvtecviy. Tlic bualiiigs were removtd about six yardswhile I wason ilie ;;roniid. I dul not hear what Mr. Hnut said when he goi upon the huntings. There were 60,000 or 70,000 persons fireaeiit. 1 lliiuk Ihe meeting was calculated to produce the must appalling effect on the miuds �f ihe iuhabilanls. CroBs-exaniiiied by Mr. B.VHROW.-I was near Messrs. Hardman and Green, but did nut bear ihe words used, i do not know wbo used the words. Cross-examined by Mr. Hunt.-1 ivas a special constable lhat day ; 1 wrote what passed on the hustings from the dictation of Mr. Hardman; 1 believe I wrote the words either during the time the person was speaking, or so soon after that it made no difference. I saw uu bodies march but on the field ; they formed round the hmiincs; 'hey forntcd in a general body asotber crowds do. 1 ciinteive 1 was between twenty and ibirty yards from the hnstings. The people were pressing close to the hustings, but un thespeech being made lliey.fell back upon the special constables ; I do not know that the constables were injured, but several of Ihem complained of being pushed back iVoni tbcir stations. According to my judgment the crowd kept back five or six yards from the hueliogs after (he speech was made. The parties marched in regular order into the field; they had a very imposing aspect; I cannot tell whether that was the best way ef keeping the peace; I cannot s.iy that I saw the people go oft" in any particular road-, I re. inained till three o'clock, but a great portion went away before two; 1 cannot say I saw any going off iix crowds. I noticed the dispersion; the field was of that exKiit that I could only see a small poriiuu of it. 1 cauuol p<irti-cnlsrly describe whether the people came lo 0( tKculfrum the field in the more orderly way. I was statioued between the biuiings and the Magistrates' bouse between one and. two^ but I saw nothing which particularly allracted my atlen-Ituu. 1 was occupied atteadiog lo AsbiKortb^ a constable.
