With reference lo the biisiupss of Ihe day, I rejoice that it has rrminoleil xis it has ihinr. Many of yuu, no doubt, will he surprised at tins ilrclaralion ; but after a calm and deliberate consideration nf Ihe subject, I am led lo cnnclade il will be .more beuefirial to Ihe cause which I ailvoeate, llial before I submit my plans lo Parjiamenl, Ibe new .Mem. hers should have a lair uppirlnnity of trying in its first Ses-sion, what they can cHert towarij�lbe relief uf the natiiuial distresses. .So lillle do I value popularity or fame of any kiud, that I would inncb rather Mat relief were brought about by others than hy myself. I care not who occo.m-plishes tbe goad, so ibat the good ba accomplished. Aii.d I wiabla give every �ip|iortiu>hy lo those riito tnpport the present arraogrmenta of suci'eljr^ to itwrdjf the.eyita uiidiT whirh-the country is now sufl'ering ; although-niy Vonrti?-tinn certainly is, ibalffrum the erroneous principles upon whirh Ihey act, Ibey must fail iu the attempt. There is a valuable precept, with which yuu are nu duublacquainled, wbich directs us lo forgive our enemies. But'according to Ihe views which I wish Iu inculcate, we have no enemies, or, if we should have any, they lead us Iu make Ihcm wur A'iends. Here, however, we bare no enemies; for Mr. Monlriih wiib whom I have been on terms of friendship for Iwenly years, coininenced his canvass some mnuths before I bad any iiilenliou of becoming a Candidate. His exertions, Iherefoie, have been directed, not against me, hut iu/avuur uf himsrlf-condurl which, on bis part, yon must allow was quite natural. I have continued the contest up to this nio-ment, lo shew that Mr. Monleith has not been tlicledby the voice of the burgesses and inhabilanis uf Lanark-but that I am, in'spiril and in truth, your representalive. My opposition shall now cease; for although it should be proved to me by my legal advisers that 1 might yet succeed hy peli-lioniug Ihe House of Commons, I would much rather lose my seat than gain it by a personal contest; and I wish to stale here distinctly, tbat if any parties cuiinrcted with my late canvass have adopted any measures (uf which, however, I am not aware), teirding in the least degree to demoralize the population of this neighbourhood, it has been done not only without my knowledge, but iu direct opposition to my wishes and instructions. Mr. Monleith being now your legal Representative, I request you will pay him all the deference due lo him iu lhat cbai-acler, and as f.flrd Provost of the second City in Great Britain. He possesses great weallh, and must have acquired murh experience among tbo working classes, and il is to be presumed that be will be aided by the collective wisdom and experience of the Cily over which he presides as Chief Alagistrate. We may therefore expect, that, possessing these peculiar advaniages, he will propose such measures in Ihe House of Coinmuiis as may lend effec-tually lo remove the distresses of Ibe country. I shall, if called upon, most willingly give lum every assistance in my power tu forward these measures ;� but if I find that no elFeclual efl'orl is made in Parliament to do justice lo the working classes, 1 shall uol remit my exertions until I obtain a seat in that place, where Ihe urgent necessities of our sitnation now imperatively demand that this subject should be fully andfairly discussed ~ TheGrntlrmrn who are here from Selkirk, Peebles, and Linlilbgnw, have come tu perform an important duly, and I beg yon will treat Ihera with Ihe urbanity and kindness due to strangers. When I visited, as a sti-anger, the burghs whirh they repirseni, I was uniformly received with great civility and allenlion. For myself, 1 have not a particle of unpleasant feeling towards any individual iu conseqnence of the lale proceedings. Afier the long detention you have already experienced, I am unwilling to trespass further on your time, although much remains to he said. I cunclmlr, Gectlemcii, by thanking you fur-lhe very marked.attcnlion--wilh which yuu have listened to me, and for the good order which lias beeq observed during these proceedings. Permit me to i'eqiiest that peace, order, and good will may cuiitiiiue lo distinguish your conduct. [The speech was frrqiieinly inlrrrepted by loud, long, and rapturous applause, evincing Ihe most deep-felt interest in the seutiineuls as Ihey were delivered.] Mr. OwFV then shook bands with Mr. Monleith and Ihe delegates, upon which Mr. Alonteitb heggvd the meeting iroiild hear a few words which be was desirous of aildressing to tbem. He expressed his thanks to Mr. Owen for the handsome manner in which he had spoken of him, and observed thai having given him his band at the rommencr-meiit of the late coueest, ha now very sincerely reptateri tlial act of friendship at iis t> rniinaliiin. H^e added, tbat he was not surprised, nor could he be otrendeil at the decided preference which the meeting evinced for his up|W>nenl.- Mr. Owen again rose and said, he had omilted to state that he should nai-rowly watch Mr. Monleilli'�s proceedings in Parliament, and if he fuiind lhat he was tncofopelent to bring forward measures calcvlated lo remove the distress in whirh Ihe country is now involved, he (.Mr. Owen) should oppose his return for this district of biirgha on a future occasion lo the utmost of bis power.-{_Loud and long-continued cheering.) The meeting theo~quietly broke up. Mr. Owen went home privately, haviug de<:liiye4l the Iwiionrs which Ibe people of Lanark were desirous of paying bim on his return; but Ibe Gentlemen frnni Linlilbgow (in the interest of Mr. Owen) were drawn tlirough the town in their carriage, and  in.kury, we understand, had received orders to be in readiness.
