Thus, wiih reference tu the .allegation of the-mode of formiu{; andcbntniuing the Councils of the Burghs, lire mere-fact, (bat these Councils do generally poBsr.�3 and.excrcisc.the powers vested m tbfcin By existine laws, of seif-election-aiid self-contiiinaiice (tipptyiug those terftis t� the bodies corporate, abd tiol to Ihe individual liiieiiitibnt) adh'iij^ of iiu duutit; but the alleviation of inferencej that lb (hia ca,use. islo be attribiiied mismanagement and abuse, where tfie'y 'eiist,' is indeed'matter ofbpi'nion, aiid can best be ascertaioed by patient aud. minute iov^sligatiOD. -- Thf same-persous are, indeed, genernlly found, to compose the'Gouucil of a Burgh fur a^rries of year*, with merely so<3i partial change of official station-a's tlie set of thie Burgh, or ccmvemerie'fe of tbe rtliiTg'parly may requirrj^uiilil'lhe ad-Verse -parly gains the ascendancy, when a similar sy.siein of srlf-formBtion and Self-election in the .body of the CbtivT^ii, continues, until again displaced by a similar rause: however the persbtisor parties may change, Ihe sysiem continues tlio same. And if is bere nioit esseniialio remark^;that iii inaWy Snrglis it constantlyiiappeiis (and in all of them~''it may happen), tiiat pefraons not qualified to be^ lis oTScotUnd, were �, also (cferred:.-Have,. roiisidereil -the sHtil Petitions, aaS have agreed upon Iheftillowing Reports- Council, an action wis briiuglit to displa(:e hint intheCoiqrt of Session. But Ibe judginent proiionnced iit .that-Coiift was in substance to tbiieiTecti'ibiit a'persoii who cbnfd �hot legally be elected into.Council; having obtained admission ' there, and tbe illegality of hfs election remaining unchallenged for the spqc? of sixty days, such person is not removable by Ihe ordinary coucse of law. Another case of a dill'erent deaicription'has lately occurred, as appears from the evidence of Mr. Kennedy, a Member of the Committee, in which it was h(;ld, that an'.idiut knowingly appointed to the oiBccbf Town Clerk hy ti^e Magistrates of a Royal Burgh, was nut removable at their suit. Again, the fact of large alienations of property from most of the Burghs is jnai^ifen from the. ducunieiits before your Committee; as also the frequent expendiiurc, beyond income, and in several-instances tlie accnniulatiou of debt. But the iofereiice drawn by Ihe Pclitiouers, that ihese things result from the inndc offurmiiigand continuing the Conucils, is a point on which tbe Committee, nut having fdllycuH,-sidered-il, have foiboriietO'decide. Under these circumstances,- your Committee have thought . h wonUbe most'nalisfactory to its own Members, as well as to the Houst?, .to include in their' Report, .not only the : evidence, but also the-several-distinct Res'ulntiops it has come to, in reference to these matters; and to expftas their hope, that if the Hbune shall think proper lb appoint the same or another Committee H|>ori this 'subject, in Ibe next Sessitiu of Parliament, thts'and the remaining allegations of the Petitioners may undergo a full and adcquate'cbnsidera'' lion. �'� �ffenngrtlie result of its hbonrs,: ... ,. .. . , , ....... ; -. r---------------- feels It iiecmsftry to bespeak the iiuliilgeHce of thevHon�p� |' PT.*" "P -i'"' become matnr^ itrtO' ae'ivity. and under for the linjitfd progress It hag inade'in the l�quiry.)ntru�tedi 10 its r{iurge; uud such induUeiicc will,';pVrl)ap?,^appear( jMit*ettBon�bfr^;wheu the HiHise.vsballiadvel-t ttftbepecnliarj 'circijn(8Xaoces uiiiler.Mbich-your.Committee was aptiuiuted^ OiUlbas runt toned to sil,\duriiig the presMitScssiput : '-r]i " 'VouriCaOTioiHee was appomKrd.'oii n'ii;.4th~or.Way,.!�inc^ . wbichvlime tbe |iri:ES.ufipiihtic,liusinr^s has Jieeo aimust.un'^' preci'dented ia"Bni�>jiDt,"in ;taiportajice^'aiid iprcqlfariij.'or^ inlcri(!st;':i.Mni�eri)�:� other Committees; t)f local, ai-^elt as l�/,{eui!hrimporUt�c�^;liavep(:casiunally called Hs fttemfae/c .

Tbe sets of inany Burghs leave the namination of the new Members of flje new Council, entirely-tflUhc olil Council.- According to those of others^ the old Council must select a portion of the new, from-ltsts furnished by the several Corporations; or furni�ri li<t� from which the Corporatmiis themselves elettj or must shorten liMs, fnmielird hy. the Corporations, who finaijy elect ftom those reduced !ists.-�-r And in a /ew inslauces, the Corpora,tions have the direct pomioatioa of a certain uomber of the Members of.the new Goiiflcil. ReSoIfedj. That the allegation of th^old Conucil.choosing the new, urged by the, Pelitioners t</prevail in ^he Town Couiieils, does appear to thefcouimiitee to be generally war-ranted by tbe law and the practice of ihe.BHrghs. . Resolved, That it is the opinibii of this C'omm'i.rtef; tliat that the Burgesses not inenrporatsd have no control over Ihe expenditure of the irye.ums of the Burgh, or over the sale of the c'omraan good ur property of the Burgh; nor any power.of preventing the Magistrates a�d Coliiiril from contracting debts, for which the cuminoii good is liable. Resolved, That it is :ill<,ged by most of the Petitioners, tb.-vl the community are liahie in their properly andperwiiis for debts.contracted by ihi-ir^ntagisir-'ites ; Jiul.lhe Committee have not been able to'aici^laiii whftlier such atlegaliuns ate fquuded in la-w or uut,the CumiBittee nut haviHg<fuuud a.ny decision of any Court upon the subject.

Resolved, ThWin'the opinion of|hjB Cuipmittee, it baa been clearly prbved in/two.insl_anceB,_'3bout'len on fifteen years ago, {bat Seats in the Council of Cupac^.haKfi been old; and from the eridenre hefiire the Committee, tliere is reason to believe that severni other itistancea have occurred, the last of which took place six. years ago. Resolved, That in the opinion of this Committee, the practice prevails generally in the burgh of Cupar, for each of the thirteen Merchants Counsellors to have what is called Neighbour Counsellors, who alternately elect and re-elect each other by. individual choice, which, as a point of honour, continues during-thelives of tiie parlies ; aod,iu m^ny cases, this agreement of alternate election has extended, in c^se of death, to the sons or nearest relaiioiis of the deceased Neighbour-Counsellor. Resolved, TJiat it does appear, from the Report of Ihe Committee.laat year, and the evidence then taken, that a wasteand mismanagement of cliarltahtc funds, placed in Ihe iiands qf the Magistrates ns-ei officio trustees, has taken place, to a great extent, in the borgh of Aberdeen; to a smaller extent in tbe bnrgh of Dundee, as detailed in the^aid Report^ That in Ihe burgh of �dinburgh,^liere there are also Lcpnsiderable charitalile funds under the management of the iUagistrates, either as sole or juiut trustees, there dues not ap. pear, from the evidence before the Comniittec last year, any ground for supposing that those funds have not beeiipru-perly adininiBfered; neither does there appear.any ground for EO^upposinsf^ in either of Ihe oilier Iwo burghs, whose cases have been examined by life Coroniiltee, in I he taut and ' present year.

This affectionate Address proves iliiil ^fitl> cultivated minds Ihey linile feeling hearls; andlhbl lo tin.i.-sympbthies, which are the oniaments of nature, iliry a-.l'i that love of liberty, irffUout which man, instead of liein'j; :iii intellectual being'aspiring lo the Hea^en^, is only a servilp reptile crawling upon ihe earib. The love of liberty is what more.than any thing ei.'=e rni.c-bles man. H adds dignity to his connieoauce ; il ui:.y tie read in his eyes; il is visible in his atlilude ; it is palpabli-even in his steps; it manifests itself in all that he snys or does.. In the social state il is the palm-of excellence: \Villi-out'it'maiv.degenerafes.iBfu auiuterior-animat; and v\th it he mount* to higher regions of civilised excellence. It is liberly which gives such an energy io the prodnclive powers of man, as' it soon converts a �le�e�t-tntD a gardcii. it gives loxnriance to sterility; it imparts a sofi venlnre lo the rocky soil; and, under its bland influeoce, the h\i\i\ of vapour and fogs assumes the serenity of a happier ciinie. It is liberly Which softens the asperities of hiimiin intercourse. Il smoothes off the abrupt ruggedness of the 'sori;i) scheme. It does not,for itcaonol, make the ineqiMliliis of life 10 disappear, but it causes them to beunfeli. Where liberty prevails ihe labourer smiles, and the pour m^io lock^ as erect as the rtch. Vphere liberly prevails no man toils i" Vain, and the disparity uf conditions operates only as an en-conragem'eot to superior activity. Liberly makes ihc greatest addition to the stncfc of general happiness; as, under a free Government, nol only no man labours in vain, tint Ihe labour'of every iutiividiml most prolific in its results. It causes a sliptriluily in llii-materials of enjoyment ) for the labour of a free man is always twice as productii'e as that pf a slave. In early life 1 caught the lo^e of liberty, and I consider it as the best boon amungst tbe gifts of Heaven to mnnkiud.
