I am thus j calUd upon, sooner perhaps than miijlit otherwise have bi-en either lu-rcssary or beeominer, to offer myself attain to your choice. Ai'knowledgmg, as I am most willing to do, the claims, bolli on public and private grounds, of each of my compeiitors, I feel it owing no less to myself than to yuu, no lon>�i r lo delay this Address. Whatever may be ^he course, and whatever the result, of tlie struggle on whirli we are about lo enter, I desire that you will consider mc irrevocably iKuiiid by the declarations I made in I8I8- bound hy all that I owe in duly and cratilude lo Ibe Electors-bound in honour and in feeling, lo hold myself en-tirtly uiicunin cled with eilNcr of the other Caudidales, aud to men ihe issue alone.

Jo 'pfpdif p.f llii's Act he begged leave to read an article in '/'A* Hdinhurgh Star, wilh irhich ih: Editor obligingly furnisbed biui last night, contahiing extracts from lite Rcpal Jamaica GaSette, which shew that oor couDlryHKa in the Western Hemisphere have taken up the �uli^ect, agreeably lo the recommendaliuus of the gener4l meetings held at Edinburgh and London in spring last, ami every account favoured the presumption thai (he subscription from Jamaica, and our otherWest liidiii Colonies, whose Governors were also wrillen lo, would be most liberal; and it is weltiknown that the Marquis of Hastings in India, and the Earl of Dalhousie ii\ Autetica, will give e�ety'possible impulse to the measure. . There was not yet,' boiriVer, snfScient time lo'receive reports from (hose remote parts, the dispatches faaviiig only been sent out after Ihe Loudon meeting in tlie emi of May lasl. i He concUided by es)>F�asii)|; a hope, that the foundation stone of the Naliooal Mi^ntunent be laid on some early auHiversary, eitliet^of the-baitleNif Trafalgar or Waterloo, .and that tliere was now every probiifcilitjr of ScotlanAobtain-ing her monumeut as su^n as, �r perhaps before, England; and concluded by observing, lhat works uf.-suclr emiiient RubUcutility Md^ifjimiatmiiiNr ti^ietl means of aiding the Indastrlous cUssea of tbe romniutuly; anil while they are tribu lea justly "due to the illustriotis.dettd^ and gallant living, tend at Ibe same tioi�-to improve the best affections of tlie people, aud are Ihe most precious aud valuable bequests lhat can he made lo posterity. In.reference lo the plan aud site it was observed, that in Iransmittine Mr. EHiot'S very elegant and classical design formed on the Pantheon at Rome, the following note was subjoined lo Ihe resolutions: " The Cominiltee are desirous it should be understood that nntbiug has yet been determined, either in regard lo the plan of the building, or its situation, both of which will be mailer for future and de-liberale consideration ; but Ihe general impression seems lo be, that Ibe-desigu to b^ ullimately adopted should either be formed on or be an exact model of some of Ihe most approved structures of antiquity." In reference also lo tbe realization and inveslilnre of the subscriptions, the Committee, afier some ' deliberation, were of opinion, that it would be proper to defer that measure for the present. The Commillee then came to the following Resolutions: The Commillee having heard Ihe report of the proceed, ings thai have taken place since their last meeting on the 22dJuly, 1819, expressed their confident hope, that the Ministers of Ihe Cliurch of Scotland, who were now in possession of ihe Resolutions of the General Meeling of the Noblemen and Genllemen, held at Edinburgh on Ihe 24th of February last, and of the subsequent Resolutions of the Committee, together with the recommendation of the Ge. neral Assembly, would, when a seasonable opportunity presented ilself, lake such measures as might appear to Ihem best calcnlaled lo promote Ihe object of these Reso-lutions, and of Ihe recommendation of tbe General Assembly; aud Ihe Commillee also expressed their confident hope that Ihe Comoisnding Officers of Volunteer Local-Mililia and Volunteer Corps would also lake such measures as might appear lo Ihem proper fur promoting this great national object. 2dly, That Ihe additional list of subscribers ought to be published. And 3(lly, Tbe Committee recommend lo their Secretary lo continue his exertions in promoting subscriptions in every direction.

" Tlie King, therefore, recommends lo the Hoose of Liirdii to adopt siirh ineasures as may be found iiidi^p^iisubly necessary to provide for the exigencies of the public servj.-e during Ihe interval which must elapse beiweeu the ii rn:;-nation of the present Session and the opening of a new Par. liament. '� G. R," It was afterwards read by one of the officers at the table. The Earl of LIVERPOOL then Sitiil, tint bffore proeeedius; to tttktt into consideralioii llic Mil^jfct of the liiiyiil iVJessage, ih^re was another sulij'-cl wliiclj claimed the attention of their Lordahii>�, and it waa his next duly lo propose aii Imaible Addresii oi Condolence to the Kinsj on the death of Ins laie revered Majesly, and of Congratulation on his owii Accession lo the Tliroiie. He slioiild, llierefore. move that the iNles-saj^e from liis Majesty should be taken into coiuideratiuti lo>iiiorrow. The motion having been agreed to-. The Nolile Earl again addressed llie linage. In olfcring himself ti> propose that this Honss should present an humble Addi-es-s to iiis Majesty, lo e.\press their deep condolence in the loss sustained by his Majesty and the counlry in the latiienled death of his late iVJujesly, and their congratulation on the accession of his Majesty to the throne of his aiicestorsi, he should certainly feel tt unnecessary lo dwell at any length on the motives and grounds for this proceeding, wliich, wiiIit out doubt, were perceived and utkiiowledgui by every Noble Lord who heard him. Hr- ivas con-scions he sliould rather trifle with and offend iha feelings with which he was persuaded every bosom around him was penetrated on this ineiancholy occasion, were he to enter into any detail of the topics which at such a raoineul crowded on the memory, and which, without doubt, made a powerful impression on eyery heart. He was moiit anxious that the Address to be presfuteit should be universally approved of, and he should endeavour lo have it so framed, that, without sacrificing his own principles or IVeUngs, which he never could consent lo do, it might be made as generally acceptable as possible. Nothing tn create a difference of opinion should be inlrudnced ; it was not the place to iHdulge in any seiitiment of party feeling. He was .sure it inu>t be the desire of every imljvidual to join in paying the lust mournful tribiite of respect aud affection to the memory of a beloved Monirch, who had swayed the sceptre of these realms during a space i f sixty years-whose reign, in times the most awful and portentous, was one of almost unexampled lustre and prosperily-whose amiable manner.s and excellent conduct in public and private life,'would furnish a bright example to all who should ever succeed him-rand whose humanity, virtue, and piety, had justly eiKleared him to his whole people.--? (Hear, hear, hear.J - He thoitt;l)t, moreover, that all their Lordships would be disposed to go to the fool of the Throne, with an assurance of their attachment and loyalty to his present M-ijesty, in consequence of the recollection of the bt-iiehts the country had derived from the government of Ins august family, and an espre^ of their belie!, that hiseffoits would be always directed, us they had hitherto been; lo [irumute the happiness and glory of his people. He should not ulttinpl to enlarge on these topics, which would only impair their strength, and should therefore proceed to move- " Thai this House do present an humble .Address of Conr dolence Iu his Majesty, to convey to him the exprrsiion of the deep alHicliou \jliich the House aulFeis, in common witlf hisjMajesly, i.i consequenci of ibe death of bis late Majesty, after a reipi unexampled iu duralion and pro-periiy, and'dislinguished by the growth of arts and manufactnres, trade and commerce, and so large an accession of glory from the splgtdid achievements of his fleets and ariniisi and lo assure bis Majesty that the many blessings enjoyed under Ihe Government of his laie Maj.sty, wbicb had to justly eu
