Mr. if BATH then rose to address the lueeling. After noticiog tvhat has been before mentioped, be observed that the dhuracters of pi;rsoiis so ' fiir removed from us by furtUhe, as was'the family of Mr. Tyote, could only be ki|0�b to usthrongh the inedinni of-,the pubhc- joarnals, and it was from this chetniiel that .he was inclined tr call the attention of tlie burges�e�.. The inhabitants of Bridgewater wishiiig-'^(li;Jce tlie burgessef of Wou-tnouth) to he'represented by a Member of thtir own free chcMce, sent a deputatioivforiHat purpose to Charles Keruey8 -Tynte, of. .Hals�(ell-Honse, near that borough, rei^oesting^him to apcept their nomination, arid that they Would return him free of expense, which was ftilfiired by4hem in: the truest sense of the--word, by even paying fhi'titriiptke, on his eblrance into the towii/and if he uiight be allowed a. pun frota ,tlw saine sotrrce, he could not help Tieclariiig that^ it would be highly advaulageotiaJ" oti}^, bopgtt^s in the kiogdom.. if they had^feif-^Tf^rerfor ;fJiift7f 'Tjy 'the saiut judicious and' patriotic 'feelirigs, -He must cUim their notice still, ftlrther.. Our mutual friend and brot'.ier burget's,. M/. Edward Sayce, of Lanneaver, was compeued to produce sume registry of marriages and burials of ibis family, to complete the title to soine freehold property he lately sold to Mr. Boiren^ and without any other intro.ilnction tlran hi� confidence in thecbaracter of an English Gentleman, he set o�f for Halsweli House, where he wasreceived by its princely owner with the kindness and hospitality of a father-not only were the pedigrees and papers of the family instantly produced, and every .assistance given to co)iy4hem, but, when he came to take hi? depar-turv, Mr. Tynte furnished hinS with letters to his agent and Solicitor, requesting him to give every facility jti hi."* power to �Mr; Sayce's researches ; and also gave hith letters of introduction to his relatives in Bath, from each of whom-he received thehigliest personal attentions, and by their efforts he was enabled to olitaiu what he never could have effected without such assistance. Hence it must be obvious to evfery person,' that the"same attentions would have been paid to any other character, who claimed such assistance-because Mr. Sayce was not knowiv, even by name, to any part of Mr. Tyiite's family. For these reasons, tlie%biirges�es had the firmest hope in the son ofsnch an esctllent father; and he with confiderife' declared i1iat they w^julil confer an honour on themselves in makingCharles Keroeys Tynte, jun.

The Lord f*rovost issued, in the morning, about 60 cirCulais, of which tlie rullowing is a copy :'- " 13, Queen-street, Monday rooming. " Sir-In consequence of a requisition to me, I beg you 'to attend a, the Town Hall this day, at two o'clock, to consider the propriety of an Address in sujjport of the King and Constitution. " Yours, very respectfully,  J. T. ALSTON." The circutnstance having, in the course of tbe forenoon, transpired, a notice was stock on a board, nn4 carried through the principal street.', telling the inh':tbitunt3 of it; in consequence of whi(5h an immense assemblage of the citizens mustered in the Hall at two o'clock. Seeing so unexpected u number, there appeared to be considerable uncertainty iii the motions of -the requisitionists, and doubts were entertained that the_ meeting would te dismissed without coining to any* resolution. At last all doubt on thtmrfey^t^was removed by the entry of the Lord Provost, twehtjr minutes after two, who walked to the top of the room, and mounted on a chair. After rebuking part of the assemblage for their want of respect to the Chief Magistrate by remaining covered, he addressed them on Ihe cause of their meeting, and informed them that a placard had been carried round, announcing to the inhabitants � public meeting, that he had'-given ilistruciions to seize �be-i�e��!r of it, and tarould-ceMainly jhi-nish him nnd the composer of it as far gs lay in Jiis power. He snid that the requisition "was written-on Saturday; lhat he had only received it yesterday morning'; and that this was never intended for a imblic meeting, and therefore required and ordered them instantly to depart on their peril.-^Here the scefie of uproar and hissing became truly appalling. J Mr. MARSQALb, when the noise abattid a little, iisked, if he had not called a meeting of certain citizens in the Town Hull, to address the King A Gentleman, in reply, asked him, if he had received a letter? and on Mr. Marshall's ackoow. ledging that he had not, he was asked what business, then, had he there.' Mr. Thomas Mtiia then mounted a chair, with a copy of the Lord Provost's letter in his hand, which he was proceeding to read,aadc6inment on ; when the discussion was slopped by the Lord Provost and Magistrates leaving the room, amidst the most violent and deafening uproar. As they were leaving the liffll six cheers were given.'

On Monday a meeting of the freemen and inha-bitaiits of this city "took place, pursuant to the requisition, for the purpose of voting a loyal Address to his Majesty; the Conncil-rooir. not being sufficiently large to contain the persons assembled, the meeting was adjourned by VVm. Pateshall, Esq. the Mayor, to the Old Town-hall, which was in a The Mayor having short time eompleiely filled . - ...... taken the chair, he proceeded to open the businebs of Mi^. Tynte in. tlie �ame,ter.fns of approbation of the meeting, and read the requisition. Sir H. HoSKYMS then rose, and stated, that in consequence of the illness of Col. Mattliews, the duty of roovi.ngthe Address he was about to present to the meeting had unexpectedly devolved upon him; he trustsd the Address would meet the approval of all present;' he" conceived it free from party allusions or party feelings, and such as every loyal friend to the Kitig and .-Constitution ^wouid approve of. He then read the Address. Dr. Hughes rose to second it. In an able speech he eulogised the happy Constitution nf his country, which liad rendered us the envy and admiration of the world,:and .stated the necessity of supporting the laws and institutions which the .wisdom of our forefathers had established, aud transmitting them unimpaired to our poster'fty. He concluded with seconding the Address, which had his wannest conciirrence. Colonel CooKB then rose, and after some observations on the late proceedings against the Queen, and the conduct of Ministers, moved an addition to the Address, expressive of loyalty to the throne, a dec'tded disapprobation of. the late proceedini^s against the Qiteen, and a hope that the. question will not be;further agitated, .-s; The Rev. Mr. Lilly, in most eloquent speech, opposed the Amendment; be contended that it was Lirrelevaot to the purpose for which the meeting hiitl ' been -caiied,'which was for the sole inteDuuu of tvilh Mr. Heath, winch waa.tiljke applauded ; and, by a show of hands, .'he wasTjrllected vyjih the most raiiiurous" and distinguTth^(i[' feelipgJ - Mr.TYNTE then rosRand Bai(f,that he felt highly gratified by this .nnexpe.cte^ mark-of attention.

The Mayor said he conceived it rested with him to propose llie umenduient to the liieeiing, which Mr. James begaed lo dissent from; the question, he conceived, was whether the aoieodineiit should be adopted in the address or not. Sir H. hoskyns objected to its adoption, as being totally foreign lo the intention of tlie Adilress. Mr. F.'BoDB.*iham objected to the passage in the Address-alluding to public agitators, as applying to this county, than whidi a more loyal one was not in Ihe kingdom. K. HosKYKS, Esq. said, he lasted he shoulil he the last to decline ufBxIng his signature ton loyal Address, but he objecteil to the (lasaage, which he conceived implied, that some in the place were disloyal. Mr. Lilly tho'iight the Address in all respects proper; whatever difference of opinion might e.xist, lie, for one, never intended or thnuglit of implying a suspicion even of disloyally to any person resentV rhp Hon. J. Cocks stated his dissent from thfr .Amendment. A long conversation now took place, nmiilst considerable tumult, brlween the M;iyor, Mr. Barrett, Mr. James, Mr. Lilly, and several Geullemeii present, which ended in the Mayor's declining to put the Amendment, and proposing the Address in it&.-original, form, ior the approbation of the paeeling. On a shew of hands, the Aildress, as put, w�s negatived by a very large majority, and the meet, ing quietly separated. ' The Chief Steward, the Mayor", and a large party of friends afterwards met ai the Hotel, where the Address was unanimously agreed lo. We have avthority to tt.ive the following statement of what p;isse(l at the meeting con\ened iti this city on Monday last, for the (lurpose of voting a loyal Address to his Majestv. -(Wfrf-ford Journal.J A numerous assembly of Freemen, Inhtbitants, and.others, took place at the Council Room, which was soon found to be too small to accommodate Ihe persons assembled. An adjournment was therefore made to the Town Hall; when the Mayor had taken the Chair, tlie following Address was moved by Sir H. HosKYNS, Bart, and seconded by Ur.* HOGHES :- "'.To tlie King's Most Excellent lUajesfii, " We, yonr fllajetty's loyal and dutiful subjects, the Chief Steward, Mayor, Bishop, Ma^istratco, and undrr-signed Freemenand Inhabitants of the ancient city of Hereford, having alrtady approached your Msjrsly with onr Congratulations on your liappy accession to the throne of this realm, are again' indnced by the eventful circumslancr-i of the times, most respectfully to assure your Majesty uf our unshaken loyalty to your| August Person, and of oui-firm nttachment lo our laws and excellent Constitution. It is with sorrow and indignation we have obnerved the designs of those agitators of the public mind, who, takiu!; advantage of every occasion lo disturb the tranquillity ut' the nation, have manifested too clearly their desire lo uver-tiirow ihe wise institutions of our ancestors. " /Actuated by these fellingsjJwe beg leave to repeat to your Majesty our unalterable resolution to defend with our iilmnst abilities that glorious Constitution under which thiH kingdom has so long flourished, anxious lo transmit it, blessings unimpaired to. the latest posterity.^' An Amendment was proposed by Thomas Cooke, Esq. containing a censure upon hi? Majesty's -Vli-nisters, for having instituted the proceedings agaiost the Queen, and an earnest request to his Majesty to prevent the renewal nf ihetn. The amendment was objected t� by the Rer. John Lilly, who expressed his astonishment that matters so irrelevaOt ai>d contrary to the purpost^uf the meeting as set forth in the requisition, should, be introduced. The Mayor confirmed very decidedly this view "of the question, and declined putting the amerrd-ment. Much tumult ensued, and a disiuchnat'tun to hear speakers- in favour of the Address wa.s strongly manifested. Oi> � show of hands there appeared to be a majority against the Address, in its, original form, and the Mayor dissolved the me'etiog. ' The Chief Steward and a numerous parly of the friends of the measure retires! to- the hotel. The Mayor being voted into the Chair, the following Resolutions were proposed aud unanimously. aji-proved:- ^ That the Address, as proposed by Sir Hangerfurd Hos. kyns, be adopted by this meeliog, and presented to bis .Majesty by the Chief Steward.
