On Tuesday his Loidsliip visited Rothbury, and on Wednesday, we are informed, he entered Morpeth privately, accompanied by C. W. Bigge, Esq. Subsequently, at-tended by Mr. Bigge and the members of his Commitiee, his Lordship proceeded to the Town Hall, where he de-livered himself of a speech, which has been "officially" reported. His Lordship again alluded to the report of his having induced Mr. Culley to retire :- " I was informed (he says) that a report was in circu-lation, but 1 am happy to find that it has not had the intended effect. 1 heard that 1 was accused of being wil-ling to sacrifice the independence of the northern division of the county, and endeavouring to compromise your Interests in an unworthy manner. Such accusations are altogether unfounded. His Lordship then observed, " that he had preferred meeting the. electors in that manner, to waiting upon them personally, not from any deficiency of respect in thein, but because he thought that would give them the best opportunity of inquiring into his sentiments ; and, 3S Ihe time he was able to spend in ihe country was extremely limited, rendered it impossible for him to wait upon all, he deemed it better to make no distinctions, and see them thus collectively." And again be added_ " He had been in Parliament six yean, and his opi. nlons and principles must be well known to them; be, therefore, did not think it necessary to repeat them ; but if any gentleman required any explanation of his public conduct, he should be most happy to afford it." : This, aa a corrcspobdent justly remarks, was insulting tlieelectOM in a manner which will be long remembered. It was neither worth his trouble to wait upon them per. sonally, isr to explain his sentiments to tliem collectively. This beats Beaumont and Ord I-Newcastle Journal. RENrttEwsinEE Election.-The Paisley Adcer. User, in an article under the head of Price of Popularity," aays, ' Of the present candidates for ihe repre. sentationof the county, or its two towns, Mr. Hamiltoq* of Dalzell, is, among our juveniles at least, the most de. cided favourite. This important advantage cost him only seventeen shillings, which, was thus ei^pended.: on ap. proaching the hustings on Monday, 4�9^4qr:thett.eqaal8 ill most other places. Thetewas a spirit of civic patriptiEm, whreh united all natives of Bristsl, rich and poor, in one strong sinew and affectionate attachment, and which has' nol been surpassed even hi Scottish clanship.' The charities of Bristol were large and comprehensive, so much so as to form a prominent feature in a description of the place. The tone Of mind of the people was not of that march of intellect sort 'which is always marching, and never where it is wanted ; but of that plain honest perception, which would not'do wrong and ihinkitright; ef that correct.thougb limited judgment, which was not to be inisguided, and to think it being enlightened^. Lastly, tbe people were, what is higher than all,a religious people, and drew the 8trea.n whictr should bring success 10 tbeir labours and peace to their minds, from the genuiue source. Such was Bristol, and such were tbe people of Bristol, only two years since: of tbe convulsion which baa since befallen them, itianeedless to speak; but something may perhaps be usefully said of the causes which led to that convulsion, and of tbe effects with which it has been attended. Of these causes the first appears to us lo be, that while the population of Bristol, as of all other places, haa been increasing, the commerce and trade by which tbey should naturally subsist, have been progressively declining. Of the steps wbich have led to this decline, the first in point of lime, is a misfortune of foreign origin, viz., the loaa of the trade in what was Spanish wool, bnt, by the transfer of the sheep to Saxony in Buonaparte's lime, has now become Saxon wool. This wool, the Importation of which from Spain was a valuable branch of the commerce of Brislol, ia now imported at the more adjacent harbours at the East aide of the kingdom. The next blow, and a sledge hammer blow it was, by which the trade of Briatol was smitten, is one for which we have to thank exclusively the pertinacious importu. nily of the Whigs. Whether these great patriots were throughout Ihe sSair, upon the' best possible terms with the French, whose dirtiest work they were doing, is a question which we do not profess to determine. When the late Mr. Huskiison, under the romantic idea that it would lead to a reciprocity, introduced into England what is called the free trade system, there fell upon all dosses of men of capital and industry, such a visitation of dis. tress as has never been equalled. While this universal calamity aflfected all^ parts of the ctiuntty, it affected Bris-tolalsoin various ways. Tbe g'eneri^ impoverishment of the country caused a serious,abatement of tbe demand for those things in wbich the commcirce of Bristol was employed.. The competition of foreign shipping, at cheaper fireights, and at for lower means of subsistence, sererely'depreased an" interest on which; "at all times, the prosperity of the city in great measure depended. But the blow which, more heavily than all others, struck at the revenue of the more wealthy, and consequently at the trade and subsistence of all classes dependent upon the expenditure of that revenue in Bristol, was the injudicious attack which the recent policy of the Legislature has made upon West Indian property. At the Congress of Vienna, when the slave trade had been some years declared illegal in British subjects, and while the duties on British and foreign colonial produce remained unaltered, the great and important point that the slave trade of other countries should also cease, was, aa to all practical effects, abandoned. In France and Spain the trade was yet suffered lo continue; and the subjects of these countries were thus enabled to bring colonial produce into market upon terms which left to the English planter scarcely the name of profit. In the meantime, the Legislaluie, in the humane desire of mitigating the grievance of slavery, added weight to weight in the expenses of the planter, and reduced large, and what had been once valuable properties, to a stale of worthlessness. From this cause alone, in the gradual operation of Ihe lasi 12 years, aix thousand West Indian proprietors, of different degrees of properly, who formerly spent the ag. gregate of their incomes in Bristol, have retired into obscurity. The effect of a blow like this upon ihe general trade of a city in which the revenue of every class depends upon the general prosperity of all the other classrs, needs no explanation.* When we consider the weight of these serious, and con. tinually increasing abstractions from the trade of the city, and ihat the people who were to live by this trade were still increasing, we are no longer at a loss to account for the condition of the people gelling continually worse and worse. " The rebellions of the belly are the worst," says Lord Bacon, and, though ihe people of Brislol were long a patient people, aiid indeed through the civic patriotism of which we have spoken, the severity of their case was considerably mitigated, yet there is a point at which it is no part of prudence lo try how far patience will go. 'While the condition of Bristol was thus getting worse, the workings of the free trade system in other places were producing iheir notural cHect. Bankruptcy, insolvency, distress in trade, want of emidoyment, and pauperism, were spreading with a horrid and constantly increasing rapidity. Many sere the efforts of patriotic and wise men to open the eyes of the legislature to these effects of the system, but in vain. A scrap of poliiicol economy (of which we shall speak hereafter) had got into vogue, and it was believed that this system could nnc by possibility diminish the trade of the country ! With the fire raging before them, the Whigs and the Economists resolutely persisted that water at any rite wag not wanted, and, year after year, they suffered the distress to go on, with a want of feeling which can be equalled only by their unrivalled stupidity. These things were great things, and they gradually, silently, and slowly corrupted the tone of that high moral and political principle, which has long rendered the English a peculiar people. But to do this completely, required other accessories ; and the Prince of Evil, whose agents are of all agents the nloal diligent, quickly found them. In the constantly Increasing distress wbich the people suffered, imposts, which in better times were felt but lightly and paid with cheerfulness, became a serious burden. A party in the country, which systematically labours to overthrow everything that stands, was parti, cularly anxious to confound the distinctions of property. For Ibis purpose they cast their eyes Upon that order of tncn, who are, of all others, least capable of defending their rights against systematic aggression, and artfully directed the popular discontent against the revenue of the church. The clergy of ihe Kstablished Church were " It was possible, indeed, to have foreseen, while the causes of it wire yet in embryo, thevast loss and injury thus inflicted on the West Indian interests; and it was possible to have provided a remedy. An abatement of about 15s. per cwt. on the duties on sugars, the production of British subjects, would have been a relief to the planter, and would have cost the Government nothing; for the aniounr, which was thus not paid os duty on sugar, would have remained in the hands of some portion of tbe public, by whom it would shortly be spent in commodities ; part of the price of which would go as duty to the revenue,'wliile the remainder formed the wages of the persons by whom tbe commodities were made. And these persons would have spent what thus came to them in a similar manner, constituting a second addition to tbe produce of the revenue, and a second addition to the mass of wages to be earaedaod spent as the former. There would thus, in a few monibs, have flowed into the Exchequer, through oiher channels, the amount in which the West Indian interest was, in (he first Instance, relieved. ;
