The violence of the blow had driven Mr. \Vallaee towards the door of Mr. Curke'a houiie, which' was dittunt itbout three yard* fruhi Mr. Wallace when he received the first blow. When recovering from the ertecl of the blow, he was at the door of the house, when some person from 'within came forward, Mr. M'Naroan* aud ,'the person who accompatiied hiito both fledTowarda Eiephai>t.:|iii�', from whence they, in a fetv uiioutes escaped^ It appears that the wdylaying of Mr. Wiillmie, atid the commission of this un|iarelleled outrage, had been meditated from the Sunday preceiliog, but no iirtitnatjoiijf -of any. kitut th�t M>v .JWNainura bad been offended at any part *if the'stjilemeiiftrosdehy Mr. Wallace had been given to him. The whole bad been (tept a prol'uuiul secret until the moment the crime was perpetrated. At the time the out-ruge was coaiinitted, there were seven other persons ^besides the two by whom ii was actually cottimit-ted,�ivaitjtig at a,short and conveiiient dist;iiice, for the purpose, we doubt not, of the escape of the offenders, had there been any ut^eihpt made to secure them.' Mr. Wallace was met by two Gentlemen of the Bar, immediately after llie flight of Mr. M'Na-maiu, and proceetled with theui to Court, when, al'ier a short consultation uiili fomcof his frieiids, an uflidavit of the facts was made, nnd a warrant granted by the Chief Jutticeof llir King's Bencji.

Thanks were then voted to the Bailiffs, the Chairman, the Requisitionists, aiiii Alderman Wood, after which the assembly dispersed, with three cheers for the King, and three for the Queen. ^ The Petition to his Majesty isto be iiresenled by Lords Grey and Holland, niid ^tha Address to her Majesty by the Membei's for the Borotvgh, On the arrival of the gentlemen at,tbe White Hurtie, who h:id fjrotesteft against the proceedings at the Town Hall, the Rev, Thos, Cobbold was, on the motton of Mr. RodweM, voted int.o^ the Chair; whet) a series of Resolutions, and a loyal' Addieis lo'his Majfesty, �sere unanimously agreed to. The Address is to be forwarded to the Earl of Dysart for presentation lo the King. A correspondent'from Ipswich writes as follows:-"One of the Utquisilionists for the Ipswich Address to the Queen having ventured on the Town-halryesterday se'imight, was marked out by a creditor, who directed jiis Solicitor the same evening to proceed immediately against him, allhougb he held security to ten tiines. the amount.

I On Friday last a very n.omerpus.and respectable tnMting ,of the Youiniai^.Mm^ in Ipswich, -.......... . was hej^ the Lou'g.^^^R^^ opd' loyal Corporation of GloverV and Skinners, or | lim, Lawraiicej^J^^ an Guild; of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Dtibliii,  utt I Adil^ess^lp iwr JWajraiy/was^ a^^^ agreed to. iug iu, that tnaiicfer.' ^ ��' The Ch 41 am AN'declared the divideiid for tfep six months comraenciiig ihe slh of Ju(jr:'aiidfiiit�it> ing the Sdi January, to be 5| per ceiit-.j according^ lo the decision of the Court of Uireictors agreed' upon the 27th of September last. Tlie account of pensions and annuities granted to the servants of the Company was read. The Chairman moved fpr the concurrence of tlris Court with the Resolution of the'la�t Court, for granting a pension of 1,000/. to Kj iM. Barnard, E'q, Mr, HusiE wished for some explanation upon the nature of llris grant. He observed,, that.there were two individnals i�lio bad retired after a much longer service, having enjoyed much larger salaries, at considerably smaller pensions. Mr. Barnard had a salary of 950/. a year; he was tO retire^ after 92 years service on a pension of 1,00.0/. .One of the two individuals to whom, he had all&ded,jhad ierved ihe Cotppapy 13 years longer than Mri Barnard's period, enjoyed a salary of 1,350/, and hip rather tlnn loaehis p^p. sion. But the regiltaiioii "was enforced with such ,promptitude, that he was-unuble lo rescue his pension. He hoped some allenlion would be paid lo tbe injury which Ijad been thus inflicted. Other-, wise, he expressed liis dt.'tehmination lo-bring the matter forward on some future occasion. Mr, Lowndes agreed with'the Hyi. Proprietor, in bis ztal lo protect the labourers, who wt-re as worthy of cousideralion as their superiors in the serrice. X Thei^AttlMAN, referring to the subject of the pensions which had been objected to, sjid, ihat the Direcioi'J(ha0i�tins; a new office at tlie mili-� slructions ill military surveying. He had no objeat his more than Ihrec-^ told,tale, to enforce aiteiiiion to the-necessity of filling the cadets fur their employments before ihey should leav^ this countiy, hy compelling them t/i learn the labguage of the provinces, lb which they � were severally appointed. He regretted that iii  spite of thetvils which bad accrued from their neglect of this cauliou, modt of the Cadets landed ju India, and remained there during the whole period of service, in utter ignorance of the dialect of the natives whom tliey were ^ command, and with whom they were frequently To act. The Company ought to give llie.establisbHients more oflicers. All the accounts received from India shewed the inadequacy of - the appointments at home to the necessities of lha service. . The 500 Cadets who weje about lo be sent out would not fill up half the vacaiicies. To six ballalioiw which were kept 011 foot, varying in llie number of ^ach battalion tVoin 800 to 1,000' men, there were no more than 4'3 European Offic-ers. There wus a similar deficiency of medical men. The civil departments geiieral'y borrowed' them from the regimental surgeons, se, ii was a subject which called loudly for reform and belter regulation. Mt, tiuMB said, that the worthy Proprietor wss perhaps not aware lhat'in India any vacant office i;i the Commissariat Department was filled by-officeis oT the line. � Here there wjb a regular Stall', ami if any officer should be removeil from the line iiiio any civil depariment, his place would be immediately filled up. In India there was 110 Stuff, uii;J the civil dep'artmeulB of the service were filled up by the military officers. iVlr, Lowndes inaide some observations on the necessiiy of the Court displaying its l^^alty, l>v carrying up an Address lo the King. Mr. Chambers inquired of the Ctwirman il' tl't: memorial of a Mr, Bailey, complaiuing of jus undue supercessiou in tltt; oHlce of Chief Surgeon in one of the estublishments, had been rfceived by-the Court of Directors ? The Chairman replied lliai it had. j Mr. Chambers proi^eedcd to comment on the punjuslifiable detention of the memorial which had "^jbe enpresented to the Presidency fifteen luontlis ai^n, for transmission lo the Coart. The Chairman called, to order, the merits of* llie memoriafi not being before the'Court. ' Mr. Home, at some leng|h, maintained Ihe right of the worthv Proprietor to comment oii the dt-if'ii-tion of the memorial by the Presidency abioad, contrary to the standing oftlcr of the Court;, ^ The Chasrman, after some furtlier divcijssi.Tii, observed that it must be irregular to make any ob. servatioii on the ineniorial, as it ftis in no shaio* before the Court, ll^had but recently arrived, and was accompanied byjtwo large volumes of rfocii-raents connected with it. It was impo^iiiblc for il.c Directors to have bruuglit the subject forward lliiis early. Mr. Lowndes expressed himself satisfied wiiji the explanation ; but he was very anxious that iht-' Court should prove its loyalty lo the King b', voting an Address^.. He meant lb try the strtiiiiUi of the Court upon the question on the next iiig. He wished nine or leu Gentlemen would jiiiii_ bi.m in sigoing a requisifion for that purpose, fie pirtjceeded to descant on the state of j;tibl-ic of.ii)iQiij ' ;
