The Dinner wiU .be. on "Table at Hntf.pait Five o'Clock precisely, and no Cullcrtiou wilt be made. , By OwUr, \t H. BODKIN, Hon. Sec. Mendicity Office. Red Lion-square, / "April 18, 1830. A numeroug and liiijlily respt-ctable meeting of the Landed Interest of West Kent was holdeii at the Star Inn, Maidstone, on Thursday last, tu take into consideration the present depressed state of Agriculture. Soon after 12 o'clock, JaMes E1.1.1s, Esq. rose and briefly stated, that the meeting was called by a few-I'r-ietids to ngriculture, and'he proposed John Cator, Esq. Chairihun, which beiug-seconded, was carried iiiiaiiiinoc�ly. After the Chairman had taken Lhis seat, fortunaTely lor mm, wanted no explanation, it was evident something must he done to protect the fiiriiiiiig interests. Suiiie Gentlemen had drawn up sevenil Resolutions and a Petition,'which he begged might be read. 'I'he Resolutions and Petition were then read, and severally put to the company, all of which passed unanimously. On the Resolution passing that the County Members be requested to present the Peiilion- W. P. HoNYWooD, Esq. rose and said, ou the present occasion it Was needless fur liim to say any thing: he was convinced of the necessity of some measures being adopted for ih'e relief of agriculture. He regretted much the abiieHce of his worthy colleague (Sir E. KnatchbuU), as noliiing but a severe and protracted illness prevented his allendjng tliat day. With regard to the Petition, he would give it every po.>>sible support, and should always be liappy to promote'the best interests of the county. Mr. Ellis slated,in confirmation of what had fallen from the Hon. Member, that he had that morning received a letter from Sir Edward KnatchbuU, stating his inabih'ty, from ill health, of attending the meeting, but that he should be in London lit the end of the week, and that he would give the Peiilion hill warmest support. On the thanks of the meeting being given to the Counly Members for their promised support, Mr. HuNYWOOD again expressed his regret at the absence nf his Honourable Colleague, who, he said, was us warmly attached to their cause as he (Mr. Hony wood) was, not only from inclination, but duty also. For his own part, he should always most readily and hiippily attend to the wishes of his con-stitnents. and he hoped that all his public acts would meet with their approbation. RiCHD. Ai.ln^ T, Esq. in rising to propose that the iliuiiks of the .VIeeting be given to the Chairman, said, that he was rejoiced 011 his (the Chair-maii'�) account lhat he had had so little trouble, but he himself was sorry on account of the country, for he could not but grieve that there was so pressing an ooca^'ion for unanimity, and he felt con-lideul that if every farmer in the counly was at the Meeting, that there would nut be a dissentient voice as to the necessity of the petition which had just been proposed. It was impossible for any body to live in the couiilry, unless something was doue lo relieve Ihe Ijndfd interests. He did hope that the Legi^latuie (vonld see the necessity of Uritons be-in^ led by Urilish corn, and that they would at last uflord prolection to the British farmer. Tfie prospect (it the agriculturist' was most deplorable when it vi:\n considered that wheat, the prime necessary of hie, could not bejaised without the loss of lou per cent., at least that was the case in that part of Ihe country in which he lived. An acre of wheat cimid not be raised under 12/., and the produce in seven adjoining parishes to'his had not been more than 6/.; and he was quite sure he spoke wiilnu compas'' when he asserted that those jia-rishes, for the last three years iiad not producef support. Through the visilulinns of Proviclrnre lliey had had but scan,>y crop.*, and the Legl^U>Mle h-rfd not protected them. He looked on ih"t Meeting not ouly for the support of the �giici>I-turaI interest, but the manufacturing also, I'l.rtlieie was na ute in the ahof.-keeper (iUing hit shop if tlic-faraier had no inoney; for if tfce farjurr Iwd uoi.e the labourer had none, and tb? mdnufxctured unoiU might be spoiled in the shopkeeper's wureiiuii.>"-, for they coold not be purchaseil. The by this time must have learnt, that ihd only wealth of the coiintry was the produce of the land, and that gold ami silver were merely Ihe tokens "f sacks of corn and cattle, which would be too cum-hersome for the pocket. He hoped, that �� peii-tioiis would be seut from every county, the Legislature would at last attend to them. He cioi-cluded by returning thanks to the County Members' for their promises of support. Thomas Rydbr, Esq. was convinced of the propriety 9f petitioning Parliament. He entirely coincided in what had been said by Mr. Albiutt, and he lamented as any man could du the necessity of calling that iMeeting. Mr. Ellis only regretted that his tongue coiildy not give utterance to what he felt on this subject, but ull that he could do should be done lo aiiain their object. Mr. VVlNCU wished to know whether any thing respecting hops was embodied in the Petition, as he considered a deduction of Ihe hop duly wus necessary. Where be resided (Hawkhurst) there was scarcely any thing but hops grown-hops was the staple commodity of that part of the counly. They weie much burdened with poor, every one could employ many more hanf1�, but they had not property to pay them. The poor-cess at the present lime was more than twenty shillings iu the pound. Mr. Winch was proceeding, wht>n The CHAtRMA.N said the Petition had already been adopted; it stated agiicniture in general, aud did not go into any particulars of cum, hups, &c. Mr. HoNYWOOD said that the Chancellor of the Exchequer held out no hopes whatever of any part of the duty being taken oft" from hops, as the state of the tiuances was at such a low ebb th-at at present such a thing was impossible. A subscription was then entered into to defrjif the expenses of the Committee attending the General Meeting in London, aud the Meeting broke up. SPAIN. PROCLAMATION BY THE KING, TO HIS SUBJECTS BEYOND THE SEAS. " SPANISH AxEklOANS-When, iu the year 18U, my ar. rival in the capital of Imperial Spain was announced, fatality induced the restoration of certain ioatilutiuns which long and confirmed habits had caused us to re^rd as superior to others, which, being mure ancient, were irreconcilable to existing prejudices, aud could uot be modified iu any liisliiiet forms. The uuhappy experience of six years, and the disgraceful evils which went ou accumulating by those means which were deemed likely, to produce univeral happiness- the general complaints^of Ihe people in both lieinispberts, and iheir euergelic deronnslralions, convinced me uf ili* necessity uf returning back lo that line from which we had in-CBUIiously deviated; and seeing that the geueral wish of llix nation, impelled by that principle which had disliuKuislied and elevated it on the great stage of Ihe world lo thai heii�ht which it -bould hold among other natious, induced ine to adopt those sentiments, identifying myself most siurerely and cordially with them, and caused me lo adopt, recuguise, and swear to, according lo a spunlaueous propusiliuu, the Consliluliou formed iu Cadiz by the General and ExliaonU-nary Cortes, and proclaimed in that city in March 18l'2. Nothing can possibly exceed my salisfaction at the iinivevsjt rejoicing which took place; and the real heroic geuen.siiy uf I'ne people, who are susceptible of errors but uui of criigie, will quickly ubiiterate the recollection of past evils. ' The Spaniards at this day present a spectacle for aduiiraiioii lu all Europe, solemnly pledging themselves n, their r.ousiiiu-tional system, which justly estimates the rrciprocut duii.s between the nation and the throne. A stale s.o secuifiy poised, and founded on the most durable basis, ou which are bottomed alike true liberty and public credit, prvimiHuit; that the new in.stiluliuus shall find their best sicuril.v i� l-i-voufable and permauenl results, combining iht- iiiiprovril state of science with the diclales of sound policy, auii vsia-blishing the military and naval strength of the nuiioii uii principles which will render it the must eifeclually appliii:-ble as circumst-anccs shall require, aud bitlding fair lu reslitie ia all Ihiugs that respect and cousideratiuo which we have losi. " A new flood of lii;ht is shed across both Spanish iieniii'-pberes, and uulhiug cpn exceed the refulgent, brighluesi which already illumiues, or the ardour which is felr from ihe sacred fire of patriolisiir. I cobgralulale myself as the fir>t to feel this sweet and generous emotion;. 1 also mnlt'iu having to announce it; and I exhort you lo baste to riijoy such immense benefits, by accepting and swearing lo a Coo-stitulion which is framed for Ibe felicity of y�u and your.s. I affirm to you, I sacrifice uutliing, when I feel that, by confirming this fundamental law, 1 shall secure your happiuess; and, though it might be productive of evil lu me, 1 alioulU equally have acquiesced, persu.aded that Ihe honour of Majesty should weigh as uolhing when placed in coaipeliiioii wilb the public good. " Americans I Vou have greatly deviated from Ihe Hue of your true interest-you feel by this time what your misconduct has cost' yuu-those immeuse fatigues-those perils without end, sanguinary wars, frightful devaslalious, and the extremities of all evils. Nothing has resulted lo yuu hut tears aud griefs, turbultnce, and, lieart.buriiings, cruel im-prisonmeuls, starvation, destructions by fire, devasialioii, and uubeard-of Bnrrors-leiulta which will but enta.l disgrace upon you lo future generations. What ran you h�;>e from such? Hear the auolhingvoiceof your King and Father. Expsl that disquietude and restless distrust which agilate you, and replace those in your bosom by afTectiuiiatt and generous senliroenla. No longer regard vengeance as a rii-(ue, nor odiuns aiiioioaily a� an obligaliuo. The twu beuus-pherea have nothing inbc(ent in them lo prohibit lasting ami reciprocal frieudshipi; nor is it in aature lhat ynu, who are true brothers, can be enemies. You .speak bat the �am* language-you prufeti but Ihe tame religion-yuu are ;
