On Friday a numerous meeting of the Freemen habitants of Hereford City took place at the Id Ibwn-Hall. for the purpo8e'~of voting a Loyal Address lo hi� Majesty, including tbe Amendment proposed byjColonel Cooke at a former meeting. At the unaninioiwt request of nit present, the Chair was taken by JoHN PaI.MER, Esq. who Htated Hint previous to proceeding to bui-iness he should read the Answer relumed by the Queen to Ihe Address which had beea voted lo her Majesty by the Freemen and Inhabitants of Hereford, am which had been presented by R. P. ScuclamQre, E-q. one of the Members for the City, and most graciously received by llie Queen. Afler reading Mr. II. P. Sciidainore's letter, and her Majesty's reply to the Address, the Chairman procee'ded to stale the object for which the present assembly had been called, and after alluding lo ihe proceedings of the late meeling, mid .reading llie requisition YrHox the present one, willi the Mayor's answer, he concluded tvilh moving that ihe Address and Re-, soiiitions to be-siilimiird to the meeting should be read by R. Phillips'Esq. K. I'HILLIPS, E^q.lhen rose and addressed the meeting. He congralulated all present that the present iiccasiona^itlled them an opportunity of shewing their lofally to their King and their attachment trf the Constitution of the country ; the meeting he had the honour to address would not have been necessary, had not the last been di^lved 80 sudiJenly ; and lie thought it rather UMfoi^niite, the respectful request conluined in two requisitions, respectably signed, had not been deemed worthy of more grace, whilst he must slate his opinion, ihat the names affixed to the requisitions ought t^ have induced the Mayor to have acceded to fhem. He then commented 011 the proceedings of the last meel-irig, and the presence of tlie Lord Lien'enunt, and blamed ihu arbitrary manner in whii-^ it had been dis'olved. Its he conceived it to have been the duty of the Mayor to take The sense of the tneeiing, and not uct ill cnn'nidiclion to it. He could not too severely.blame ihiit presumption which induced any set of men lo arrogate lo.the.iijiKives exclusive ioyully ; he thought ttif-ie fhe bvsl friends to Ihe country who supported the Conslitution in all ils parts, and the loudest iiv profession were often found the most lardy in action,' when Ihe day nf real danger tirriyedi He then observed on tthe Ad- ply, whose names ought lo be published, which' h^d not been the case in the present instance ; and he therefore begged that the Convener would explain to the meeting who or what Freeholders had signed the Requisition.-^/ipptause.J Mr. Menzies staled, that aitboogh he did not consider the Gentleman had any right to call for the Requisition, or the names of those who Itad signed it, yet he did not object to the Requisition being reail, which was tead accordingly. Dr. FoaoYCE said, he had been perfectly clear Ihat the meeting should be called, and it was a very great mistake that his name did not ap|>ear in the Requisition, which he would have most cordially �igr.ed. The Marquis of HuNTI.Y then rose, and� in a clear and distinct manner, addressed the meeling nearly as follows:-" Gentlemen, it js highly gratifying to me to witne*� the respectable body of Gen-lletnen now assembled on this most iiRportant occasion, and I trust that we shall all be unanimous in voting'a warm, loyal, and affectionate Address" to his Mnjesly ; and 1 Siso trust that Gentlemen have come here only with that view. And whatever Address may be agreed upon, I shall be proud lo have the honour of forwnt'ding it. Whatever niy polili-cal opinians may be, I have never ^truded them in-public or in private, and the line of conduct 1 have hitherto pursued I will still continue. 1 am satis-\fied. Gentlemen, that you are assured I have only ''one object iti view, namely, the welfare and interest of this large and important county."-f Hisses from the galleries. J Mr. laviNE, of Drnm, without otf^ring any ob-servaiion, handed an Address across ihe table. Mr. Menzies, in Xtconding the Address, said, that b-? would refrain from making aayj;omnients upon iheterms of it, about which he conceived thefc could not be two opinions. ..Major Leith Hay then fpoke nearly to the fol-lo�in;j ( ffecl :-"My Lord, afcer the very guarded and apparently unexceptionable m^mner in whxh the Address proposed to this meeling lias been worried, 1 conceive-it necessary lo explain the rea-soiit which actuate me in dissenting upon the present occasion, and for the vote which I shall consider it iny duty lo give. In loyalty and attachment to his Majesty, and a firm determination, both us an individual in society and as a servant of the Crown, to use fny humble etTort�, on all occasioiif, to act in a manner calculated to preserve inviolate ihe taljility of the ihrnnt", iitid the iranqiiiliily of the coiiiitry, I will yield to no persofi now pre'ient; but, my Lord, on this occasion, I cO'isidrr ihar tvery one is called upon to expresi hisojjinion, and ! have no hesitation in declaring my tirm conviction, the great and leading object sought to be ol^-liiined by transmitting the present Addrfsi, as ihe sentiments of the county of Aberdeen, is to prop up and support the tottering fortunes of the present Adininistralion-an Adini-nistration who hav." cota- the safely, of ' of otjier r. OKLT prosperity, aiid, above ail, of our iiHtioiiaf honour, which, I trust, op let of men wijl be perriiitted to wrest from us, or fo tirnish willi impunity.' Feeling "this in the strpngePt manner, I will oppoje any aiel,ant woy to convey an approval of such conduct ; and, if I siionld stanrt alone, 1 am delermiiM-d to t�ke the of ihe meeting on tiie kabjecl."^Yl^oiiri applui'Se.J Mr, Menzies Stated hiM surprise that'Major tlay shinild impnte motives which tie?|her the wording: of the Address, iior any circum�tiinceB which 'had occurred in the course of the proceedings, cotlfil warrant ; that be Considered ihe Hon. Gentl'etiiaft out of order; and that he had merely intfod�(4^ the MiJ>j?ct of propping up a tolteriiig AdCttiuiStrB-lion, for the pmpose of indulging in b Vibleh't phi_[ijipic ajjainst Ministers ; that, for his �Wrh parfj - ittd \fe believed hs might say for all present, there was liot Ihe" m&il distant iriientioii of proppiing tip Ministers, whom he wi3i>al lo be altogelher left out of view. _ � Lord Forbes trusted that Major Hay would consent to withdraw his Resolution, and tliat the tneeflJ-iug would bf unapimons" He coiiM assuie thkt' Gentleman and the meeting,'that AJinisters were no way concerned with the Address, which wis s'lmptj', a loyal and consMtuiional one to the Kiiig, and in ' no w4y conveyed an approval of the conduct of h'fs Ministers. Mr. Menzies said, that so far fmm approving qf the conduct of Ministers, directly the coutrary waa the case. Mr. Hay still dissented, staling, that ^id he for a moment suppose that forwarding the piesent Address would in any fhipe tend to save his Majesty the pain of lis'eiiing lo liie seiilimenl6 whi';h the Ministers liadcalle For himself, he bad the utmost loyalty and attachment la ;tbe throne, anH so far as that went, there was nnt-a- man more rearly than hiin?elfto express it; but, afc preaeot, he saw no necessity for such a niesslir^t.-.^&rsncli a meeting- [Applause)-and unless llw; AJddreis should , bear to be confined to Ihe Ro"yal Family alone. He would oppose it. He was always ready and willing to support the just and constitutional prerogatives of the King, and was well satisfied of ihe blessings we enjoyed under onr free and happy Constil-jtion, , if properly administered, but he would never consent by a side-wind to give a posvibMiil^ to Ministers to gay that he approved of their conduct, which he thought no man either did or could.- (Great applame.J Mr. Menzies asked, why it could be supposed the Address was intended to support Ministers He bad already said the reverse was the case. ^ Mr. Skene said, the Address itself was sufficient to convince him of ihe intention. He asked, what occasion was there f6r an Address at all } A good deal had been said about blasphemy and sedition-he had heard none of it. Addresses' had been pouring in from one end of the country to the other in a very different strain, and condemning Ministers ; and it was evidently the object of the present one, by a side-wind, to counteract, if possible, the effect of the others.-f Applause. } Lord Forbes again explained, that the AJdresa was confined to the Throne, and could have no effect in supporting Ministera, whose conduct he by no means wished to touch upon. But he did think, that when sedition and blaapheiny were stalking abroad-- Mr. Skene-" My Lord, I amnnuch obhged to you : you have now let out the sfecret.- (Great applause. J-Your Address U not to-the. Throne, but to Ministers', against, whotnany discontent that does exist is directed." Lord FoRBESagain explained. N Mr. Menzies also spoke ag^in. Mr. Skene said, he wak ubwiUing to trespass fimher on the lime of the meeting ; he should only say, that he considered any Addre�s at all to bij perfectly oniieceWary. 'But if ^ must be voted and sent, he held in his hand aliotherAildress, which he begged leave to propose ax|ires8ion wfiich migbl be construed iaio an approval of the meaaures-idopt-ed by your .Majp^'s ."Ministers, wbich have'produced a bpii-saiioQ lo the pubTit-imind Jpeply-lo br deTilbrcd by all wh.> -are itnpres^ed with those feeling.s of loyalty-aud devotiuu, i%[iicb we never cease to cuteriain to your Majeaij's at>g i'-t Hersoo, and to ibC' laws and tiberi^ta of flie country." - i^Greai applause.'} ...... Mijiir Hay saiil, ihat after the clear and able manlier in which his friend Mr. Skene had expressed himself, he c6n�idered it'unnecessary for hira to -'ay mnch in secbi'fding fheTi
