It was most nuuicrously signed, and would h.-:vc been more so had there been more time. Tbe petitioners were natuniily naxluus fur the prowtscd recognitioH. So long ago as January la�, his Majesty's government, in nn official paper, proclaimed to Spain and all &nn>pe, that the rc-coguitino of llie independence of these stutes VMhl not lung t>e delayed. Five Oionths hud since elapsed, but XB||^ rect^uition had not uken place. He wns most anxious to CAllthaatlcalion ot governmciji to the feverish stHl�i of the coiumer^l world upon this poiut.

Smitb) bad been a member of that so-cie^ fijr some yeairs, bnt wiw not aware tliat tbe expectation thus expressad was well-founded. If it should be the pteasnre of th� colonial department to vnd Dr- T&orpe out to Sierra Leone again as chief justice, the African association would have ho objection to it. The question was then put and negatived. SirC. FORfiES rose to bring forward the motion of which be bad given notice, respeciiug certain irregularities charged to have occurred in the recorder's court at liombay. He eatexed into a deUiled narralive of these. Tbe ioiport of tliem^ however, appeared to be in defence of the conduct of Sir EM*ard West, the reconfer, who had suspended the Barristers of tbeopartrfor six months.

In no de86riplion of meat, however, "was there any alteration, the price of Monday being maintained.

COUJtTRY M^RKEl^, Liverpool market has been belter attended, and good wheat has rather improved in demand, la oats very Tittle was done, aud the enquiry for beans aud peas was very limited. Tbe general opinion of the Liverpool factors, however, was tnat grain had sceu its lowest price. At Sherhourne market there has not beeii much to notice; the priie of wheat was 56i. to 66$. with a steady sale. Barley was in some request, at 26s. to S2s., and oats sold 19j. to 30s. In beans the trade was rather heavy at S6s. to 42s. Yeovil market has been tolerably firm, and 56s. to 64*. has been obtained for wheat. The barlev trade had hern looking beHer at 26s. to S2s. for good malting parcehi. W^armioster market was very flat { wheat was quoted 42s. to 64�., with little doing. Barley, however, keep its price at 24s. to 368., and oats were tolerabljr steady at Sis. to SOs. In beans thdre was little doing at 40s. to 50s. per quarter. At Wakefield market there has been a fair supply of wheat, but dot much of other grain. Tbe wheat trade was entirely in a ^te of stagnation, and the best parcehi would not sell under a reduction of 2s. to Ss. per quarter, while inferior was totally unsaleable Sbeliiaf oats were Is. per load lower, but maltii^ barley was scarce and dear.

He begged to kdd, it had bi-en under coositleration to introduce a cbuso in one of the latter, which Wou'd reader the gretiler part of the oaths now taken iinnecessaty. He agreed with tbe honourable gentleman opposite, thai ^tm&hfaig a fal$>e affinualiun an peijury was punished by the law now in force, might do much to re-haedy the evil. The bouse resumed, the Chairmao reported the resoli4tions tome to by the committee, which was agreed to, aud the bills ordered accordingly.

While he w.i.-� here, 'JOOl. was stopped from his salary for a debt elaimcd by a Mr. Smith. Dr. Thorpe stated this to have been p;.id in the cclony by the verdict of a Jury. Tbe sum was, Jiowever, stopped, as was, subsequently a further sum claimed as due from L)r. Thorpe to another i^eotieman. A number of cliarjjes were .wnt over here to Dr. 'liiorp^-.
