Trades Free Press (Newspaper) - December 23, 1827, London, Middlesex " TJIEY HELPED EVERY ONE HIS NEIGHBOUR, AND "EVERY ONE SAID TO HIS BROTHER, BE OF GOOD COURAGE."--Isaiah, xll. 0. to* VOL. III. No. 1^8. SUNDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1827. PRICE Tel.: ON THE NEWSPAPER PRESS OF LONDON. "A cliiel'� nniang ye takin notes, An faith lic'll prent it." [We have received the following article from a Correspondent who seems to have no little knowledge of the Press of London, and as'we consider it important, in this eventful crisi-s, that the people should have a fair anil honest view of tliose who affect to be either their instructors or their organs, we have withheld onr customary Essay to give it a place.] Tbc " knwrt ^i*tWlltfr jantU' iflfo^Kat' w^rldf is -)pade up of fa\\, foppery,' light; that carried conviction into the Cabinet tarried conviction into the Courier. I now come to the " MonaiNo Post," The " glass of fashion and the mould of form"- the mirror in winch the. dandy may see his own nothingness reflected-the;courtly witling his abortion delivered-theexquisite his stately cxclusiventss represented-the lady's maid her Ignorant imperiineRce, and my lord's footmanhis lordship's and her ladyship's bolls, routes, arrivals, a$d departures. The Moming: would require the eyes of Argus and the "hinds of Briareus ; yet. Mr. T- does the, whale,, besides writing" Very frequently himself.  In politics,, the Herald rather inclines to' the anti-liberal party, to which it has for many years been- attached ; and as a generous enthusiasm is not unfrgquontly mixed up with the suprrort of freedom, the Herald, affecting'to love plain, sober, straight-forward flcti-rig/Vakes many opportunities to give' sly hits and severe cuts at every thing of higher pretension than mere matters of fact. If, however, the Herald be anti-liberal in its general politics, It is a decided and an uprooting reformer of public abuses. It has always supported, economy and inquiry, and has done more in. " showing up" the bubbles of the day, than all the other journals put together. It is a " Church and State" sort of paper, wedded to old prejudices, and looking with scorn u;>on modern principles and improvements ; hence the friends'of a large and enlightened system of legislation need expect no-support from it.' It is in politics what Lord Eldon was in'law-always looking at what hat been, rather than what 'should be ; yet, unlike Lord Eldon, it is prompt, bold, and decisive. The next on my list is . " The Morning Chronicle," Solely edited by Mr. B-;,- called by that Ajax in.coarse sense and . cunning sophistry, Cobbett, f' Doctor B -." This journal has always been attached totheliberal party in politics,vand is occasionally seen iri.the'ranks of the. reformerSj; ..but ,1-am-afraid'it is too much connected "wJthV i,^er-/.]^fj||/ ^ibj5 taking them by surprise, to yield to.the,forceofarrns,t .what they,have hitherto refused tq grant to thia, temon'v strnnces of t)ie Ambassadors.  ~ ,i . * It Xs afiirmed<that news has beeiv;received,i-by.ath,a� Mihister for .Forcigu Aflnirs, that the Commandte*4n^ -Chief'of the Russian Army of Caucasus has algneid^ since the taking of Tuulis, with Abbas Miraa, tho preH; liminaries'of ti ponce, which secures to Russia tho provinces rn dispute. i , i 1 � �v,ft An article from Berlin notices , a'-report-of as note; addressed by,the Emperor to the.FQr'eign Mlr-lster,S|it the Russian Court, in which he repeats the m;o$t; pos,i*t live assurances of his not desiring to aggrandi^eJhJac territory, but declares that ho will prosecutethe plaa! agreed upon by his Allies for�the,- paciflcatiOiit/of Greece; and, should,;!lio Porte refuse to yiehliv 'fihavdf ecourso to other means, to uttain;thedesired object'*!

Singular case op AFFii.iATioN.-rMr. Chassereau stated that the woman at the. bar, very well dressed, and-rather, good-looking; had some time since applied to him for an order of affiliation, stating that her " accident" had taken'place at an hotel in this town^ with a man whom she never saw before, nor since, but that now a married man and the father of a family voluntarily came forward and avowe,d himself the father of the child, and to this the-woman was ready to make oath. The Magistrates observed they never had so singular a case before, and the following conversation took place:-Magistrate-A re you married ? No. Is the person who now says he is the father of the child, the same that you met with,at the,.hotel7 No ; this man is the father of the child. Did you see hini at the hotel 1 No. Did not you say that the man at the hotel was the father of the child 1 Yes. Was het No. Why then did you say so ? Because I was forced to it. Mr. Cliassereau~Was "the whole tale of the hotel a fabrication, then? Yes, it was. Sir. David ScoU said, hq, had no "doubt; that the. present man was not the real father, but was induced to ac^ knowledge ; himself,t such ;frotn interested motives; "Where 'is the man?" A man in''a brown livery stepped forward, and avowed himself the father;, On. being, asked, if he was willing to take an oath that he believed himself to be the father, hesaid hc'shouldnbt be very willing, bijt affer ^ome .hpsitaUon he sdid he should not deiiy it.
