The news of the withdrawing of the     Bill of Pains and Penalties" was received in Stamford on Saturday morning wiih the ringing of bells, and with those expressions of exultation on the part of the Queen's parii^ans which it lurat   to expect and  fair  to alio a handbill  was issued,   inviting at,   ...uiuniHtK in the evening: this suggestion did not proceed from the Mayor, nor from any of  those pe'r.toos who are responsible for the (leace of the town; yet the apprehension of incotivenient consequences from not attending to it, prompted many respectable persons to light up their houses.   Some, however, with � proper sense of the degradation of being forced to do what their reason and feelings condemned, refused compliance with the anoiiymous notice, and exhibited no illumination.   The consequence, we lament to say, has been a fresh ilUistration of the freedom which is allowed under mob governineiit, and a mjst disgraceful scene of mischief and violence. Allen at night, some persons, from whom better things might have been expected, led a part of the individuals who compose the band of the South Lincoln Militia (contrary to the express order of the Officer in command at Slnmford) into St. Mariin's, and by their musical petformaiice attract/d and condensed the mob.   Several houses that refused to illuminate were attacked and the windows broken.   Among these was the house of Alderman Hunt, which was besieged for twenty minutes, and resolutely defended by the wor.hy iVlagistrate and his family and assistants.   Here ihe conflict ended, in llie loss of some prisoners on the one side, and of about 30 panes of glass on the other.   Continuing the route through the town, the houses of Mr. Alderman Mills and Mr. R. Newcomb, in the High-street, were the next points of attack ; but there the miscreants were intimidated by resolute sorties upon them as 80on as they began to break windows, and after watching in vain for three quarters of an hour for an opportunity of doing mischief with impunity, they retired, having demolished five squares of glass in Mr. Mills' house, and four in Mr. R. Newcomb's, and at each liouse having a prisoner secured.   The residence of the ;Vlayo�.wa� in like way beset for a long time, but not a pane was broken.   The houses of ft'Jr. Torkinglon, Mr. Cay-ley, and .Mr. Adams, suffered a little; the vigilance of llie civil power through the night prevented any further material mischief. On Sunday the Magistrates who were engaged at the Town-hall in receiving inferiuation against the rioters ; four cases were clearly established, and the necessary recognizances entered into for prosecu-lions,-/"i/ain/brd Mercury,J BATH, NOVEMBER I?.

The public sentiment of the inhabit-ants of these towns upon the failure of the Bill against the Queen, was detuonstrated on Monday evening lust by an illutnination. The inhabitants of the extensive town and parish of Portsea had shewn, upon the second reading of the Bill against her Majesty, how warmly they participated in her cause; itwas therefore with seetiiiiig peculiar pleasure and satisfaction that they joined to celebrate that event wliich il was Ihe objett.of their intended meeting to have effected. The exulmtion excited by the news of the liill being lust was suspended only during the sacred d-ay which succeeded. Early on Monday flags were displayed in different parts of the town, llie bells were rang in joyful and victorious peals almost without intermission Ihroaghout the day, and numerous housfs and person^ were decorated with laurel aud white ribbands, as expressive of their attachment to her Majesty, In Queen-street (where tliere were eight out of -nbout one hundred and eighty houses not lighted), a green bag was suspended across the road, wilh the descriptive word h -of Virtue and innocence."-" The Lord deliverejh the oppressed."-" Innocence vindicated."-" The British Lion tearing in pieces the Bill of Pains and Penalties." At one house was a live dove eating from the hand of a frmale; a label trimmed with white ribband was lied round its neck wilh-" The Queen is as innocent as.ihis dove." An excellent band of music truvetsed the streets throughont the evening, playing loyal and national tones, aiid contribiitiog in a great degree to produce that joy and unanimous feeling of loyalty which it is desirable to maintain among all clasces of persons, particularly in a large population.
