Wednesday last bert^appoiijtpjKfnr the election of tivo Aleniber^of^PSHwro^trftrhhtsCT at an early hour the freemen hefjan lo s^senible in the Town Hall, and ubout eleven o'clock, after the nsiial forms had been avinjj;> been conslanlly tttieniive to his pifblic- duties and the interests of lii� constituent. That he had acted not only a u-efiil but a shining part ; for that when he moved the Address at the opening of the last Session of I'urliauient, he had shown nut only zeal in givinf; eiierjiy to the laws for protectin;; the morals, the re-lifjimi, and the cnnatilutiou of the country, assailed in a manner unknown to former timec, but that he had evinced to sincere a regard for the liberlies of the people, tliat he had excited the praises of even the Leaders of the Opposition. He said he should abiitain frorn expatiatiiif; on his weIl-kno�n private virtues, out of delicacy to the presence of liis friend ; and because he believed his open manly character was acknowledged and valued by all ; nor had he -jh enemy who attempted to fit on it a siiiijle blot. He observed that the city might novi be congratulated upon an election without a coiitest, which would prevent those cauies of irritation which too often accompanied pojilleal straggles; and whilst on that subject he desired to return liis personal tliaiiks to the many friends who warmly supported him, uiid also to all his fellow-titiztns for tilt ir civility when he himself solicited the honour lie now requesleil for his fritnd. fie said ilmt being too lale ill lhat application had caused him to reflect that it was loo late also with'regard to his time of hie; and he took that opportunity of assuring them, that though the spark of .ambition.which h iil been kindled on that occasion was extinguished, that his st'nse of their kindness would never be ex-tincjiiislied but will) his existence. He concluded Willi declariiiir his lull assurance of his Hon. Friend's success, and thanked the meeting for the iiidiilj>ent hearing they huii afforded him.

Friend, h proper person-to represent this city in ParliaiDeiit, that he ^ihould not now, long tresp.iss on the time gf the meeting.

Upon  this |niting uU in the bonds of amity and peace. R. Phim.ips, Esq. then rose for the purpose of proposing K. P. Scudamore, Esq. He observed it was most grateful to his feelings, that he had again the honour of nominuliiig his worthy friend Mr. Rd. Scudamore, as one of the Representatives in Parliament for this cily. He was certain all deplored the immediate c.iu-e, the demise of our late most revered and venerable Sovereign ; at the same time that we hail the accession of his present most gracious Majesty. He fell it quite unnecessary for him to expalinte upon the public character and conduct of Mr. Scudamore, it was perfectly well known to those he addressed ; all have long experienced his honest nnd faiihful s-ervices, which have frequently and repeatedly received the merited applause of his constituents. There never was a time when it was more egseiilial to the best inte-resls of the country and'Ihe coustilution, that men of tried honest and iridpiiendent political principles should stand forlh in ib.fei.ceof the drooping rights of liie peojile, against the present exorbitant power of the Crown, and the influence of the Executive branch; arising from a variety of causes, as well from the enorniuns load of taxation, a vast standing army, and the dictation,, iu effect, of the Minister of the day lo ti'ie House of Commons; for if the Minister of the ihiy, whoever he may happen IQ be, can carry all his Mieasures,' whetlier good or bud, through the inslru^ineutality of the House 9f Cpuiuions, without being responsible, there will soon l>e ai) end of all our freedom and happiness. Therefore unless some check can be found against j these great evils, either by a i]iioderate reform of I the liu'ise of Couiuious, or by the House of Comhinns refortning themselves, which is rather ' a hopeless ease., .it will, be with us, M in former I, titles It was wilh the Roman Republic, where I all the forms were kept up,.after the good and substance were losi ; so we, I fear, shell have to lament fli Consliiulroii, the once boasted aud glorious (] CotitrUiuijon of England, is little fQore thun a I ^hiidut* aii(f>a name. He concluded with strongly . recoipitneiidyig lus i'riend, Air. Scudamore, to their ' sufl'rufcjes and .Mipport. J. PALMEn, Esq. (o^e to seeoud Mr, Phillips in 'he nomination of their long-tried anrl a.jproved (liend Mr. Scudamore, as a person einii.eijily qualified to represent tl is ciiy in Parliaineii!. iir- frit ii. supeifiiious f'br hull to occupy the liin^- of ineeluiji, as Mr. .S.nd.iinore was well ko.Mvu to all preseiii, and further eulojiy was iiiii-.>^ce>s iry.

Afi'er tiavinn expressed hi- grati fiil acknowledgments to tlie Geiiileinen w!,o |iio|)omiI aiid seconrled hini, for iho very tlat'eri'..^ ina'iiier 111 wjiich tliey liail done !->, he said, tlnl v.tuaied as he vi-it in llieir ueighbonrhood, coime' ttil as he Wrts Willi them, and gratified us he iind been by t'ieir kindness and fiieir toiitideiice, it wis inipos-* silile lor litni not to feel most anxio^is Id lu-ve the boiionr of a^un beconiiiisj tlwir Kcpresei.tniv.-. Iij)|jressed wiiji these sentinienls, he hhf hasTii^-d, jt� *ODu as it w-a.* ki^wn 'that lf>e late Parlia.>:iei!t wirs-oir the eve'of^iMo'fritfo'ii,'lo pay I'l's persoim) respects to the eirciors, and if any. ti.iu;,' couM have added lo the gratitude he bcfoie ftit t�l.^HnU them, it was the kindness with which I;-.- v.a. rr-ceiv-el^, and the oiiprectdrDted -sncce.-s cf it:e cai.v.iss �lie had since made.' Indeed he could not h. Ip st..l-intr tliat he had received promises of suijpori fr'iru nearly five out of six of the ffeemiHi of ihe ci'y. He bagged \s mention that there �a� anoliier cii-cumstiince which would render the honour he asjiir-�d to particularly acceptable : it w-as this -tlmt no pledge had ever been required from him us 10 the line of conduct he might adopt on any particular question ; he must say, that wiji -out a fee'ling of perfect independence, he shoiiM cease to derive that pleasure from having a seat ir. the House of Commons which lhat honour haJ liitherto afforded him. As rational liberty is the pride, the b�a.-t, and gloiy of our cunni.'y, so is tii>� feeling of indejieiidence to individuals, especia.''y lo those who are sent by their fellow-citizens or u ht-r electors, to the great Council of the N^iiion. lie conid not help here observing, that he had !ieaf;(, and seen in (irinl, the term indepeiulencr niucii perverted ; he was confident that the Hon, Grntle-men willi whom he differed in politics did not t.iuk that independence was inconsistent with party iiias, and he appealed to the common rotaning of the word, anil to the common sense of all, whether it was con.>.islent in u man to give up all his own ideas and notion.* upon political suhjrcls to the leaders of the party, which, upofi tha nlmle, h.-inight think it his duty to support; as he trusted that his poliiical principles were welt known, he would not unnecessarily occupy their time by a re-,petition of them; but he would say thus niuch, because it could not be too strongly felt or too often repeated, that he had tlie strongest and most iu-Lmli)jl>U! attactuae"*^^ >h&.Coa�tUuUoa jf this couii-try. He could not help here atlverting to some observations which had fallen from the ;;eiillemHii who had proposed Mr, Scudamore, he felt ihe deference duce to the experience and leurning of ttiat Gentleman, but he mast say, that as to the sentiments he had expressed, relative to the House of Commons, his opinion differed very widely, and he denied that the [louse of Commoiit was governed by the will of the Minister. He expressed hi-sense of the importance of the .trust he ^^as soliciting them to confide to him, and of the necessity in limes like the present, of exercising it with 2eul and firmness. He sincerely lamented the distress at present existing, both in the commercial and agricultural interests, and the dissatisfaction resulting from it ; but he did not think that the remedies often suggested by those who difJ'ered in politico from himself, viz. tlie change of the ,'\)v.sers of the Crown, and a general alleralion in ihe mode lii returning Members to Parliament, cdcuUited lo remove the evils: lie did not think so, because tht* other nations of Europe, as well as the United States of America, were equally suffrring (Jniresi,. On the contrary, he thougfit that as such ulleratio;.* would not tend to remove the difiicullies the conn-try laboured under, as soon as their ncvcity �a� over, disappointment would be added to li 1"su11 faction. He begged to say, however, ttiai whenever gross corruption was j)roveil, he sho'.iUl wi-ii to seethe elective franchise forfeited, alul gii-eti .so others more likely to make an honourable o^e of il. He hoped it was nnnecei-sary now to ai-nire i.iieni of his sincere desire to promote ilie welfire aiid iijlt-rests of tlie city, and oncUided fiis a.lilrrss by thanking Ihem lor ihe indulgence wuii wlilvn thty had heard him.
