" About mid-day, the Duinbartonshire yeomanry cavalry arrived in town, nnd, in the afternoon, the Ayrshire yeomanry cavalry. Another troop,of Ayrshire yeomanry cavalry arrived this morning. iViore troops are expected iti the course oflheday.. Several troops of the iOth hussars and the 80lli regiment of foot, marched from Ediu-buruh yesterday morning fur this district. "From the threatening appearances on the streets during yesterday, a Proclamation was issued by the Lord Provost and Magistrates, the Sheriff of the County and Justices of I'eace, ordering all shops to be shut ut six, und enjoining the~inhabi-tauts to retire to their houses not latter than seven o'clock. These orders were .ttrictly observed by the great body of the people. All our garrison, together with the numerous volunteer corps, were on duty for a great part�f the night,, they mustered again early this morning, and are all under ordera to be ready at a, moment's wurning. Little more was done lhan hooting and howling by the mob, on the streets, us sinail detaclimenls uf the military werepttssing. " iVlany corps have been observed drilling in this neighbnurbond fur severul iiigiita, pa�t, and some of tiiem even during Ihe day. In some placec struiiger: have lukeu possession of sniilli!.' shops, who in-statitly fell to work in mnuufaciuriug pikes, &c. The times arc perilous iu the extreme. We do not exaggerate when we say that there are at this moment 60,000 persons in this city and the -surrounding towns and villuges who have struck wurk ; many of tliese, nut u doubt remains, hnve been compelled to join this highly iilegaj combi-nalien, by threats ; such au immense liofly, however, caniiot long remain inactive. If Mroug mea-sut'es biB not in!<tantly resorted to, it is impossible to say when and where the mischief will end. " Were the sober and industrious part of the operatives, n ho, we believe, are still iinnierous, to unite, ahrl fplluw their usual nccuputions, we are confident they would find ample protection from the Civil Power. This meusiire would tend greatly to counteract the diabolical designit of the dissulule, anil be an eftectua' mean of bringing the guilty to puiiii uiiig the revniuiioimry aiid treasonable. Address [which we inserted yesierday.] '* An irpn-fouiidery was last night broken into in the Gallowga.te, and a number uf fijes^ &c. car- | ried c!^. If.fire-arhis wqs their oliject they were fortunately, ditappoiated^ at thete had previously beep lodged in u place of ufetjr. . We anderttaad a party of the Radicals wfn; lait night into a farm-bouse, about four n;,l-i �oath-west of the town, and after filling their br^h'-^ with what came in their way, went off, wuhout do-ing'Ony other mischief. " yesterday the Justices imposed a heavy, fiue a'. a bill-sticker for posting an advertisement on the Proclamation iasued by the Lord Provost and Magistrates. " One o'Cfocfc.-The streets are crowded, a:i J some audacious .-insults baxe been off'ered to He yeomanry of the adjoining, comities. Last night, about \i o'clock, nearly SO lin! -nris went out from'Paisley to Lonnsdulr', a mij--^uuth-west from the town, und deinaudetl whatertr .^rc-arm� Uiight be in the house. Ou being to'.,1 there were no arms iu it, they said they wnuld (jf) next lo Fotcbar, a little to the weslwurd. The pro-, prietorof Louusdide told them, if tliey did, thc'y 'VMii&-#Het ��Tih^ a> detemined fftiHancts, whioii they fount) to. be the case, .as,the (/roprielor, arte vainly givit^g them warning to retire^ fired ufir.r, them, by whi of the Radicals, is fraught with the most open an^l barefaced rebellion. At firsttbose wlio, lukeivrtrni in the cause of Government, and who ure ever ready to make apologies for the proceedings of the disaffected, pretended it was a Government trick, and quite unauthoruced by the RadicaU. The lUdicals have, however, given their ftienda on this occa, ;H in the fields, and a good many are at Jnhnston.e, wli^re, with the .aid of vast numbers from the aaFroaiuliiig vijlag$�, tbejt, are endeavoaring to in. tttnidate the Worked at t6e (lifierent cattoo-miU!, BO as they may also give up work. Most of the .public works in the immediate vicinity, through intimidation, gave up work at 0 o'tilock this moining. A large party of men and boys assembled this fort-noon on the Sacel Hill with two flags, and for several hours practised military maniBovret^ by marclv-iiig aud forming into close oolomii. From the situation chosen, and the public mauner in which th�y went lo work, there ijbiiodoubt thelTopeiations were only, at least chiefly, intended to cause alarm, and/ provoke an attempt to apprehend them, asthey were distinctly seen from many parts of the town, and in case any attempt had been made agaiiiit them they were conscious of a safe retreat, the hill bein^ so high that no force coming against them for that purpose could approach, wiiliout giving them tirua to effect their escape. All has remained quiet fo this hour-(eight o'clock), and, in obedience to a Proelamation of the Magistracy, many of the inhabitants are leaving the streets. " Since writing the above we learn, the menaces of the mob succeeded in causing all the cotiou mills at Johnstone to.be shut up. " Two men are lodged in the Police-office for slicking up the Rttdical Address on Sunday tuurii-ing, and two others are also confined there for tearing, down the Proclamation of the IViagi&traies ou Sunday evening." The followiog communication is from a wril-informed correspondent in Paisley i-. " PAISLBT, TDESDAT MORNINO, APRIt. 4. " The town of Paisley has been in a slate of v^ry great agitation during the Inst two days. A printed placard having been posted up iii every corner of the town, and industriously circuUied umuti^ the inhabitants, calling upon the people lo abslaiii from labour, and attend lo the recovery of their rights, has produced a sensation which cannot !je described. The language of this document is very strong und violent, and bespeaks a resnluiiau equally novel and alarming. In compliance with its request, the weavers, almost to a man, struck work, resolving not to resume liieir employmetit until their grievances are redressed. The colton-spiiiners, the general body of masons, weights, aud other tradey, although Iheir suiferin^s have been less severe, have notescaped the contagion, but have also imitated their example. " The main streets of the town, both yesterday and Sunday, have been extremely crowded with people walking leaceably up and down, and aU though tranquil ity has ret been preserved, the greatest npprehen'sions are entertained of some iiri-mediate and serious commotion. The people in tlie _ surrounding villages, even those iu publip works, have likewise abandoned their vocauous, which cannot fail to produce great cousteriidtion iu the public mind. Every well-wisher of bi� country must deplore with no small sorrow aud alarm, thiil sfu'h discontent should prevail. The auihnniies.in i^e mean lime, are doing every thing in their pow�r to preserve the peace, bud a most difiicult and unpiea-84nt task they have to perform. They have issued Proclamations, warning the populace of.their iiDTiil-iient danger, if ihey proceed to tomnlt. .
