GLASGOW, SATi;aDAY, Apkii. 8, [From Ihe � Glastiow Courier."} Tliat a ojeneral attack was intended to be made by tlie Kttdicala on tliis city, on Wednesday last, is now beyond a doubt. This rising, we hesitate not to say, has been goaded on by a set of ungrnteful villains, who have had constant einyloyment, and. wlio have been in the receipt of the highest wages given in this country. Yesterday a general searcli for arms, pikes, &r. were made by a striuiij tniluary force, in all our suburbs, viz. the Cilton, liridgeton, Anderglon, &c. a siinilaj-search also took place iirthe villugt* of Airdrie, Stralhaven, &c. will) vnrions success ; a number of iiHlividuaU, supposed active leaders nf the liadicals, have been appreliended and committed to prison ; and many suspected characters have fled. Pikes and fire-arms are hourly found ill the fields and rivers, which the infatuated wretches have thrown away in despair, on finding llieir diabolical schemes fruslratcil. A general search for arms, &c. was yesterduy made in Paisley, when a number were found. We understand a man, -who had seized by the belt one of the veteran battalion, was instantly stabbed by him in tlie breast willi bis bayonet, and fell down dead. This rooming a party of the hussars, rifle brigade, and Dnmbarluii.'ihiie yeoniumy, iveiit lo Milnguvie, about seven miles jrora Glasgow, wlirre they made a search, and Tiave brought in to this city five prisoners, .seven guns, and above' 300 lounds of ball cartridge, wliicfi were fouii'i secreted on a hay-slack ; the balU appear lo be very ill made. A few uf the R-adicaU have been at'drill yesterday, but a great )iioportioii of them had'been expecting a viiil from the inililaiy, and lied the day before. Uelween 4 lo 500 liail been reguhnly at drill for some weeks past. Ill a second edition on Thursday we mentioned that a detachment of iniliiary had been sent to Dun-tocher early that morning, to apjirehend i^ome individuals against wiiom information had been given ; ten tneu were seized and lodged in DumbartO:'i Castle ; one of the tnen, in attenij.-tiiig to escape; wns shot through the leg. A hundred doubSe-sh'otted ball cartridge, a few pikes, and other ana.-', were seized. Early on Thursday morning a party of frnaa 40 to 50 men, supposed iroia Glasgow, armed with pikes, muskets, &c. appeared on the banks of the canal near Kirkiutiiloch, and after waiting >oaie t;me apparently m expectation of being jouied by otliers, they threw away their arms, aud disa|/pear-ed. hioine of the arms have been since picked up. Three of the principal Radical leaders. George Washington, David Graham, and Wiliiaiii Griliam, were ap|jrtheuded on Thursday night, aftd, with a truak containing papers, lodged ia the JPolice OflSce. WednescJay mght last, we learp fttfm various ;
