The 2,000 Tidkets to be decided 11th of April, i-niilleil iti 3()i. each, over and above whatever Prize they i Liberlyj ip the re-election of that Gentleman us one of the Representatives of the County, an amazing concourse of persons met him on bis entrance into the town, and drew him, amidst reiterated cheers, the waving uf handkerchiefs and display of colours, to the front of the Exchange. \Ve may truly affirm, that full three-fourths uf the entire population of the place were collected together, and all seemed animated by one common feeling uf proud exnitalioo, and an unanimous spirit of ardent enthusiasm. The immense number of bnman beings on the declivity and lower part uf the High-street, forming, in appearance, a solid body, when viewed'from an elevated position, presented to the eye of the spectator a gratifying and imposing spectacle; but what constituted the most edifying and impressive part of the scene, was the evident political interest which all classes felt in the splendid issue uf the late contest. Had a similar scene been witnessed a few years ago, it would have been mure the triumph of an individual, orof family influence, than uf political knowledge and patriotic zeal; but ou this occasion it-was manifestly the glorious ascendancy of honest and independent principle, over the efforts of a base and contemptible faction. When silence had been obtained among the vast jnul-tilude, Mr, Lambton addressed them from a temporary platform, erected in front'of the Exchange, to the fblluwiog effecb:- He said, that in addressiqi; so large an assemblage, it *ouId be impossible to make himself heard by any considerable portion unless they preserv^ed ili(! Hinst |>n>fouud silence. He conid not Andw^irtls lo. express the fii;eliiig3 which he entertained at the glorious result of the late contest, which had pre-emiuently plated hitn at^itin' in the |irifud situation uf their nepreseDlalive.-Mj^Iaiwe.i>^Nolwi v.-(l 10 say, that be fell thi-ni front his heart; bat the result hatt iinly tended'lo prove, that independence would still raise her head in spite of every species of corrupt itj-fluence,-r/Ipp/aine.J-It was now proved, that he spoke .the seuse.of a vast majority uf the freeholders of the county. -rf Applause.J-If any persons fell disposed to dispute the fact, let them look to the numbers oh the poll. ' There were about 4.000, or at the most 4,500 freeholders.ia the coniity, out of which 1,731 hadaclnully voted for hiih; and on exA-mining bis canvassing books, it was found he conld bavede-pendetl un 1,433 more, who would have'given bim their votes had they been necessary. These two numbers put together made 3,214 voles; a inajdiily which, in proportion to the total number of freiholdeis, was unprecedented ill any county. L*t those With whom the ennlesi originated look at tbisi^ letthem uow say* whetlter he or they spoke the seutimt'uts of a .!|;gre�t, uijjurity" of the freeholders; and especially when|lt,waspb.serveil that out of the gross number of voles whicH'he liad po'llell,;Jl�c� were ujuv-ards of 91^ plumpers, and had the contrast been protracted to the end of the period allowed by law; he could have polled as mAny.as 2,0110 plumpers. Let them look also to the vast mnllitodc around him, and then say, whether be did not speak tlie sense of the inhabitants of the county at large.-[Applause.)-To the freeholders of Sunderland and the two Vi'earniouihs he would say, that, although in-every p.irt of the county his reception had been most gratifying, it had been no where more so than among them-they had come forward nobly in the contest-he had found among them many of his firmest aud stoutest friends-and it was there where he had wilnes.sed the first burst of tint spirit which'had rapidly diffused itself throughout the county.-rt.oud cheering.j-He then adverted to his past conduct in Parliament, tihich he trusted would be considered as a sufBcient pledge for the future; but should ?uy thing more be required, he could only assure them that no effort should ever he wanting on hiS part to maintain, by every constitutional means, their freedom and independence. If ever there was a time when the people of England shoulil choose only such Representatives as would assert their rights and defend their remaining liberties, such a time was the present-a lime of unexampled distress, caused by excessive tax-itioii, which was severely felt by all. { -CApplause.J-.At the commencement of the late reign ' the interest of the national debt was only three millions; now no less a sum than four millions was annually paid to 10,000 collectors uf the taxes. And lu>w was the immense revenue of near 70 millions expended? Partly to keep up a standing army-an engine calculated to abridge the liberties and overawe the sentiments of the people, to protect the Administration in a career of extravagance, to prevent retrenchment aud economy in theexpenditure, and to perpetuate nseleas places, unmerited pensions, and burdensome sinecures.-(.^/ip/au^e.).-He declared they would ever find him the advocate of every measure that could tend to ease the country of its enormous burdens, and to promote the happiness of his fellow-crealuies.-(Applause.)-He wished bis Majesty's Ministers conld witness the vast assemblage he had then the honour of addressing-hearts beating with the love of liberty, glorying iu the manifestation of their independence, aud pruud to have set an example, that no selfish cousideration could iniliienre their minds, or tnake them swerve from the path that led to the restoration of the rights of Englishmen, and the consequent welfare of the country.-(Great applause.J.- He then adverted to the evi-dencewhich had transpired at York, relative to the proceed-ins;�at Manchester, and which he considered showed mure tbSti^eve/tbe oecessfty of a parliamentary iiii>est.^ariun into tlie transactions to which he alluded. The Honourable Gentleman made a variety of other observations which we extremely regret we are compelled to omit, and entreated on that occasion (a proud one to their mutual cause), that no ebullition of feeling might lead them from the straight forward path of order and propriety-that the firmness of their manner when assembled, might only be equalled by the orderan'd peaceable demeanour of their dispersion-that no pretext might be given to their opponents, to say that, meeting in the mainlenauce of their rights.'that exultiug iu the effort to regain those rieht.o, they were not the true friends of freedom, of peace, and of order. The Honourable Member then retired amidst the acclamations uf the immense multitude. At five o'clock a highly numerous and respectable company sat down to diuner at the Bridge Inn, Mr. Lambton in the Chair. The entertainment reflected great credit, in every respect, on Mr. Jowsey, and gave universal satisfaction. After the cloth had 'been removed, the Chairman pro posed " The King-5Iny he never forget the principles which seated the House of Brunswick on the Throne," The Chairman, on rising to propose " The Independence of the County uf Durham," prefaced it by observing, that often as it had been his fortune to address bis countrymen, he had never done so with more satisfaction than on an occasion when he looked round him and saw so numerous and respectable a meeting, and when he reflected that Ibcy were all equally engaged with himself.in maintaining the pure exercise of the elective franchise.   They had many times heard of-the cause of independence being bttacRed in this county, but never was a more disgracet'ul ciimbiuation formed against it than that , which had been just defeated.-{Applause.)-But in proportion as the parties who excited the opposition were low and contemptible, iu the same proportion were they supp(>rled by the Government and the Church, and all the engines uf power.-(/Ipptatjre.)-^That he had been able to withstand the force brouehl against him, was owing to the sponli-neous and zealous support he bad experienced from the independent part of the county; and he should indeed be ungrateful if he did not particularly ascribe bis success, in a very great degree, tu the exertions of his friends in Sunderland. Those wlu� had witnessed the progress uf the poll at Durham, were ac  to the treatment. Mr. Wharton and his friends kid experietici^d frum (be popul ar iudignaliun, aud ccusuretf iutcotperitte itcUuus, as being not only unjustifiable in thrmlielyes, but injurious to the cause which they were meant (o faViSur. With rri;ard to any fullire attempt sgaiRst their independence, if h^; knew Ihem right they were not to be lulled asleep, but il.i v would'continue their exertions until they hail convim e,i their enemies they were not to be again taken hy surpr-.e; and he was happy to say, ttgat an association would be formed which would render eVery fulur'e contest on the pait of their opponents hopeless.-^Applause.)-For himself, since he had first addressed them, upon the ocea>ioo of opening the Exchange, nearly seven yeftfs ago, he tnistet they considered he bad acted op to tliose profession.^ ki-had then made; and he could rrulv a'siiert that he never had but one object in Vie\v-the promotion of their intei-esls, he was indifferent at what e.-:> men. He would say that no money could procure fur him satisfaction equivalent to what he then felt; and were he ti> die that moment, he shfiald have lived luiig enoiigb-(/.oi/ci cheers.)-Mr. I.,ambloii then alluded tu the contest butueeu i\Ir. Brougham and the Lowlhers in Westmoreland ; and afterwards to an iudividual who had publicly advised ."VVr. Wharton to abandon his desigii of canvassing Suuderlaiul. This Gentleman, he stated, h'd, as he had beeu informed, discharged two maid servants for wearing Slue Ribbands. He concluded by giving " The 1,731 freeholders, who gave Iheir frefeand unbiassed suffrages in support of our glorious cause." The CiiAIilMAK next gave " The uupolled freeholders iu bis interest," and went into some details, for which we cannot possibly spare room. " The 1,483 unpolled freeholders, whose names remained inscribed on our poll-books at the close of the poll." Song-" Scots wha liae," &c. The Chairman, after remarking that the patriotic song which had beeu just sung, was justly ami peculiarly itt>-tinguished forthemauly sentiin.eiits it contained, proposed- " Lord Cochrane, and the cause of Independence in Souiii America."-{Tumultuous applause.) Captain Cochrane, in a few words, returnfed thaliks for the honour they had done his brother. The Chairmav next propoied-:- " The Freeholders of Sunderland and the Wearmouths, who steadily adhered to their pi;omise8i in spite of uncou-stitulioual threats and menaces." After the toast of the rrecholders�of Sunderland and its neighbourhood, Mr. Ogdcx rose to return thanks on their behalf. As a native of this place, he couid not suffer so high a compliment as had been paid to his brother freeholders to pass without comment. Having personally .attended the canvass of the Hon. Chairman, aud marked the progress of Ibis election, he bad noticed an enthusiasm in the cau.-e, :iit niiaaiinity of sentiment, which he believed wds unparaLleletl in the annals nf electioneering. Indeed, tVoiii the warmlti of feeling which he had witnessed upon this occasion, he was-cunvinctd (and he believed he' well knew the parlies) that sooner than submit to the dictation uf any man, or "et uf meu ; sooner than suffer Richard Cttur de I.ion, or any one similarly circumstanced, to be palmed upon them, the freeholders of Sunderland would, when requii-ed, wilh one ac-cord march barefooted to Durham. Spng-" When Vulcan forged the bolts ofJove.** Mr. OODEN, iaproposing the health of Lord Grey, said, he must allude lo a name well known to every friend of freedom, a character dear to every man uf liberal pi incvples ; qnewhuse life and talents had been dtvuteil tu,. aud ivliu.e health had suffered in the pursuit uf whatever was to promote aud secure the liberties uf the people of Englauil. Hp then eave- " Earl Grey, and the Whigs of England." The Chairman returned thanks lu behalf of bis Noble Father-in-law.

Mr Armstrong returned thanks iu au impressive and eluqueut speech. " Dr. Fenwick, and the Central Committee." " Lady Louisa Lambton," with three tiroes three, Mr. Lambton briefly returned thanks, and proposed- "� The Ladies of the county of. Durham.'" " Prosperity to the port of Snnderlaud." " Mr. Brougham, aud the Independeut Freeholders of Westmoreland." The Chair.MAN returned thanks. Mr. W. TaVLOB. rose to propose the health qf Mr. Whit, bread, and success to him In Middlesex.
