Prizes of 20,000/. each, jtbA in u feceui Luiiery, all the Prizes uf 30,000/.! used to have on the fcuffrai^es of llie Livery, A little after twelve, the [Jail beins; nearly lill-ed, Sir William Curtis entered, in his Aldermanic t^own. A mingled clatiiuur of groans and applausen attended him as he pa>8ed through theHTll to the Aldermanic Chnmber. Alderman Wood followed shortly after, and was received with uimiiimoiis applause. Tlie other candidates succeeded, and were received iu the luaiiiier which the feelings of the crowd towurds them dictated neverally. The caiididaijes are six in iitto^er: I be Lord Mayor, Aldermen Wood, Curcis, Wailhinau, and Thorp, and iHr. Wilson. At one o'clock the Lord Mayor, followed by the Sheriffs, and preceded by the Coaunon Crier, came upon tlie platform. The Coinmoo Crier pronounced the ucuhI |.)ioclutnation, in orderto opening tlie Court of Hastings. The Lord Mayor and his officers then retired. The galltry over the entrance was crowded with well dretsitd Indies. The crowd in the Hall grew impatient, as tlie candiilutes did nut nauuiit the hustings till 20 minutes afier one o'clock. As they passed from the interior through the length of the Hall, and ascended the plalfurni, clamorous shouts of upplau-ies and groans shook the roof. Jt was with the greatest difficulty ihe city officers and can-diilttles made their way through the dense crowd. The cries of all kinds increased lo the ntmost as the ci,ndidaies took their stations, and did homage to the assembly. This much of the business took ten ininules to arrange. The Coramoii Crier proclaimed the election upeii. Mr. Collinridge read the �rit, and then adniinislered the usual oath to the Sheriffs, He then read ihe Act against bribery and corruption. The.�e forms occupied the lime until 20 minule.s before two o'clock. Sheriff HoTHWELl, then advanced and said, that he would 11(11 detain the Livery a single moaieiit ill slating the bu-iness of the meeiitig, as they were all so fully aware of it. He only begged for the sake of order, common .justice, and common convenience, to allow every geutleiitan a fair hearing, whatever might be tlie nature of his political sentimenls. Sheriff I'a lUCINS seconded the recommendulion of Sheriff Kolliwrll, and expressed, his determi-' nuliou to ptescrve and enforce the utmost impartiality. Tlie Lord Mayoe then offer himself to their coiiHtderatiuii as a' candidate for the honour of reprttetiting them in Parliament. He alluded brieliy to his past public conduct, especially during the period of his mayoralty, as the test of the conduct and opinions he proposed lo himself to adopt in Ihe dl^charge of his truet, and promised, if they would elect htm, lhat he would serve them faithfully and independently in the Hou�e of Commons. He retired amidst: considerable applause. Sir W. CuRTl* advanced, and the hall instanlly rang with peals of execrations. His speech throughout was iiiterrupietl by noises, which did not grow weaker or more harmonious by the duration of his harangue. He was barely audible within two yard* from bis person. From the fragmenis uf cla-mour-brukeu sentences which were at all discernible, he wuH understood to say^ that'he appeared before tliem after having had the honour of serving them in six successive Pai liaments,-(yUncA uproar, and a cry of " A great lieal tifo'Jong."J~lle vx-pressed a cinilideiil boj/e of beiiig'relurned. He resented what he culled a lale'of a'tiib," which had been thrown out to his dispitni^hie'(it reR|ieclin|; the Orpbaii's'Futidi ^ We iioa.ersWod-bini to say that there had btjeo tto aubH iii Vubstaiire ^heie 60> yeafi', and that' tht infcWstiof iE;_UoiJld 'not furnish a l>ut uf porter add-Bb^i^^f'kteiaE'iHlii^'^lertc8eng^g>' i fd in it. He offered a paper to llie consideration ' of the Livery; wfietlier he deputed the statement it contained, or offered it in proof of his own assertion", could not be correctly gathered owing to life noise. His print iples and publics were belore ihenj. It was not possible for n man lo hide his public, or even his private conduct /or long together. The liaronet then replied lo an observatnni which *t appeared Mr. Kavell made Xo him respecting the Orphans' Fund, that it was an untruth.- There was no money in hand. How ilire Mr. Favell BMert that there was money in hand > All these were election tricks. So was the Opposition to hiiu on his conduce resptciing the Clergy Fire Tox. His motive for voJmg as he dui a wish to support the poor Clergy, and oppos-e the rich, and he took Credit to himself Fur opposing the last Corn Bill, which he averred 7ie had ilone with success. He had been abused and vi||tli,-d, but no iHHtter; he left his cau�e with liis friends, and felt i.r� doubt of eventual success.-^Loi/d hooting) t/iruuff/iout.) Mr. Arort, this was a day of solemn exatninatinn. The Candidates ought lo account for iheir condut:!, and he bow stood before them to account for his. He was ready to answer any question titat any man might put to him. He called on any man to shew in what instance he had neglected his A\i\Y or violated the promises he hail made.-(Appliiuse.)-' He knew that uidiaudsome and undue influence h)id been privately exerted, but he hoped that his Fellow-Citizens had the boldness, tin- independence, and the honArty to reVis't it.-(,i I been twenty years ago refuted. That his enei!ii'> should have recourse lo such unworthy mpim-, oi !v proved the weakness and badness of llieir i-an>.f. When he came forward at the last eleclioii, liesioinl ou a distinct ground-;l was thi.�, that the great In dy of the middle class of traders, who must be fiee-men, should nut be excluded from public honoui*', but that the door should be open to all. (.)ii thw ground they supported him at the last eleciion,,Hiid Ihey triumphed. He now calli d nii tlieni to tij.-hold the Bii-me principle; he would u>-k wlieili>r ihey would allow themselves lobe a degnuled be debarred of all ils trusts and honours ? \\ heilier they would suffer the ii fluence of inercluiMls and bankers, who were not ciii2ens,lo thrust an iiulividnVil on them against Iheir wishes and iheirindepem'eiict He heard the Common Hall Culled a lihhle, he-cauae it wis composed of the non-livery ; he w,is surprised how individuals would dare to fay sc, Ihnt c-4lled persons to their aid who were ncitlirr Citizens nor Liverymen. He called on ihnii (o support their rights, and however Iremendoiu t' e iiifiuence they hod lo contend with, they would, he hoped, triumph over it ; it was their duly in make a great and viUuous struggle, for uiile>s ihey themselves set a good example, and evinced in the Brst iustance tlie virtue of iitdependetrce, he feared they would not so easily get persons to act independently for them. He stood alone on ptibhc grounds-had he asked the place of their reijiese'i-tative as a matter of personal favour, he knew n-.t in what language he could address ihein. [i-^ came forward on very different grounds-as a person resting on their interests and feelings, and nothing else.-(Applause.) . Mr. Wilson next addressed the Livery. Un said he was conscious that he did not discli.irge i,is duty with ability, but he acted at least with z-nl and fidelity. They were pleased at the last el'l--tion to say they would give hira a trial, it was I'jr them to say whether he had redeemed the promises he had made. He had not done much, but he was iever anxious to make every representati ;i for the advantage of his fellow-citiaens, and remove those grievances of which they had a right to complain. Of his political conduct he would si;y bat little; though more attached to the Gnvemiiieiit than to the opposite side, he yet hoped that Iu r--deemedthe pledge he had given, and if he did u-.t please all, he hoped that he convinced all thai !,e acted honestly and independently. He never lo-t sight of the support due to Govenimei.t, but .Se never Ibst sight of the rights of his fellow-citizens ; lie would prove himself always to be their devoted av.d faithful servant. The Town Crier next put the names of the d-f-ferent Candidates in succession. The shew of hands for the Lord Mayor and Sir William Curtis w-is hot very considerable; the shew of hands for Alde.'-man VVood was very great, as also for Alderme:i Waiihman and Thorp; there was also a consiJe'-able shew for Mr. Wilson. The opinion of ihe Sherifls were then deliverft, it was, lhat in their oj-inion. Alderman Wood, Alderman Waithman, Alderman Thoi p, and Mr. Wilson, were elected, upon which � poll was demanded on behalf the Lord Mayor and Sir Wilhi'tn Curtis. CLOSE OF THE FIRST DAY'S POLL. The books were withdrawn at four o'clock, aid shortly after the following numbers were a.-uounced :~ Fur Alderman Wood................ 108 Mr. Wilson .................... J0& Alderman Thorp................ 103 Alderman Waiihman .........., J>4 Alderman Curtis................ 70 The Lord Mayor................ 80 Mr. Aldermau WoOD first came forward, and' expressed his gratitude. His station ou the poM was very gratifying to him. Though he had asked' them to give him the first station ou the poll, his return under any circumstances would have been sufficient honour, but the elevated situation on lii'-' pull Was a proof of the sense they entertained of ha pait services. He only had to beg them lo continue their tfiortfc as they bad commenced, and return him at the head of the poll, and they were sure of all that was in hit.power to do for ihe benefit of the people aud the honour of the empire.- (Crfaf applause] ,,  Mr. WtLSON advaftced, and the applauses were converted into groans and hisstss. He was Very ;
