The trial of a , bottle will ensure it itie prrfcrencei Yesterday a Court of Proprietors was held at the East India fluuse, for the iiurpose of considering the expediency of preseiiiini� an Address of Con-doleiue oil the deatii of the late King, and of Cmt-gralulatioii on his Majesty':! accession to the throne. After some business of form was disposed of. The CilAIilM.tN slated to the Proprietors the ohjtct for whicli the Court hod been convened-it vt:n one �hich he thought would unite uH their feelini^s, and in supporting which his own senti-inenis would only re-echo those of every Gentle-luau who heard him.- [Hear.] - When he recollected the threat leiiKlli of his late Majesty's reign, and lhat their Inmetiled and revered Sovereign, throiiuhout tlie long course of sixty years, had ati'urded lo all his Kuhjects the higheft and roost continued example of the exercise of all the vir-lura which could adorn a throne-when he recpU lected, this einiiieiit proof of exemplary worth, he knew thai the memory of tlie lale Kini; must ever be helil 111 grateful retnembrmice by his people, and lhat the dignity anil glories of his character would ever be held sacred in the history of the annals of this naliun.-(//ear, heur.)-He felt equally ns-sured, that vtiili the same unanimity wliich would mark their assent to the condolence, they would also declare their allachment lo his present Majesty, anil their unalterable loyalty lo his illustrious House-[Hear, hear,hear.)-Ti\e worthy Chairman concluded by proposing an A'ldress to his Majesly, exprvxsive of their condolence upon the death of the late King, and uf their loyalty and attachment to his illustrious Successor. The Deputy-Chairman (.Mr. Uobincon) in seconding this inolion, satd he.was satisfied that on an nccasioii like the present, only one sentiment could pervade the whole body of the Proprietor", he uieHtit a fueling of regret for the loss the nation had sustained iu the death of their late revered and illustrious Sovereign, and of congratulation upon the acceasiun of hi* present Majesty, whose throne he knew they would approach with loyalty and respect.-fHear, hear.)-He should not trespass any longer on their time, but conclude by iiecond-tng the motion which had just beeu (nude by their Chairinan. At Ihe motion was about to be put-Mr. R. TwiNlNG rose and said, he could not luffer this motion to pass without pulling in a few words in praise uf it from among the Proprietors. He should, indeed, regret, if upon so interesting an occasion, the Proprietors had not had an opportuui'y of cordially expressing their feelings in praise of snth a motion as that whicli had been just made within tlie bur-H motion which he trusted would be carried with the. most perfect unanimitr.-(Hear, htar.J-'Vo form a jusi estimate of the mtri's uf their late beloved and revered Sovereign, it was not necessary to be a persou of high considerntion, or moving in a superior sphere in society. Hi? lute iVIajesiy's merits were such as hud been equally manifested to all ranks of society, from the highest to the lowest, and which bad imbued almost every being in the commnniiy with a reverence and �t-iHchiMent for bis high cliaracter.-[HeuT, hear.)- The late King was certainly not as some Sovereigns had been,  man deeply versed in polilictil intrigue; he had ascended the throne too at an age when he could not be supposed to have had much expt-rience in life; but uotwi.hstundlng his want of the arts of political intrigue, and the inexperience whii'h he iQust have laboured under on ascending the lluone, he bad uniformly throughout his long reign set ao example to the people which would long be revered by Englishmen. He liad shcWii theuj ill all the relations of life, as a father, a hus-band) and a friend, a greatexumple, whichcould not fail to have hud its good account among his people. - [Heur, Aear.) -In u reign so long it was natural to have to encounter occasional and perhajis uio-ineiiioua dilEculties. On ll>e*e trying oi.cunions ins late iMajrgty always shewed that he was solely actuated by his view of what was gootj for his country. Thii feeling uniformly predoiiiiuiited in his mind, uiid in6uenced all iua actieua.-(Hear, Itear.j- Hi� leir posiession at all times waa peifccc and un-diilurbed, aud such as wa* calculated tu inspire and command obedience aivl fit*pert. . If at any period of the late reign there ht^d iteen any one" thing more gp^el(d d than another, it was the gem-, ral succeision of Governors in lodii^, who wtre dis--tiiignished by their mildness, lh�'ir jn*Mcp, Hinf; tirinness. -(/-/ear, Aear.)-The tsiiMlays of the la's King had unfortuiiHtely bet'n cfoitdeil; had ic pleased Provider ce they !-li�ttlhe immense population of the I;iftictiou, he trusted they would be equally'ready tu uugur the siine good from that into which they hud just entered. - [Hejr, hear ]-The nation, lie knew, had to ro'uplaiii iif "�tne privaiil the suliject. Though the laiiguige applinl 10 it was not that of udulatio.-i in any riegree, lim Biuitily ih it cf simplicity and truth. - {Henr, heur)-He concluded by giving his hearty fupporl ta the motion. Mr. Rand.ii.i. Jackson said, that he was sure all who heard hi.n would concur �i li one htari and one mind in the elounent and euloumms which tlity had t'lis day heard bestowed iif.on the character of their It's limtnted and beloved Sovereign. Ii wus impos�ble, he ihouglit, in the whole range of history, to 6iid 11 iVlo-nnrch who was more jii-lly and more aeserveil'y beloved. They had, tiodnubr, re;id of a nuinb-r of sirnaines which had been �p; led to many Monarclis: they had heard the term " Geal," mu-t profusely be.itoweil; " Well-bcloveo another phrase, though the manner in which it was applied could not fail to excite a smile. IJiit if he were to express Hii uddit.'otial epilliei to the laie King's name, he would call him " Ki"j^ (Jeuree llie Cond." - [Hear, hear.) - D'lring his long reign be had had to encounter many difficulties, yet in them all, when they were .of 0 poliiicdl uHline, hi� late Majesty looked op to the Consulnliou as his guide, and according to hi.t perception and apprehension (T that Con>tiluiion, be guided Ivs conduct on the throne, for it wa* a Constitution fur which he wa.i prepared to go to llie block.- [Hear, hear ) - In oil moral difficolties, wheiie�er they arose, hi* Ufe Majesty looked op to his Go'l as the only source �.f real trull), and from whuse fountain alone comfort and solace coubl be drown,- [Hear, /leor.)-Ad-"erting to iheir i;nmense possessions in India, it bad been well said, they had, under the late Monarch's auspices, diffused happiness over the once benighted nattves. The Indians themselves acknowledged the mild and equitable spint of British law, and no intelligent individual umoiiir iheiu would exchange il for the system which it h-id so liirgtly supplanted. The worthy Proprietor then ex-presst d his approbnti-m of the course taken on the pre- sent occasion, undsjid their vote would not be received' with the less grace becaui^e it emanated from tha whole Ciirporatiot), instead of a part of iheir body. He ul�o approved, under the circumstuiices of his piesent Majesty'* health, of the delicacy of prr-sewling Ihe Address through the medium of their Chairman and Deputy Chairman only-though cu other occaiiions it would be perhaps proper tu hbve a larger iIe|)Utation when they iipprouched the ihrone. He cordially approved of the whole of the proposed motion. The motion wtis then put, and carried unepi-mously. It was ordered to be presented to the King by Ihe Chairman and Deputy Chairman. The Court then adjooriied. CITY ELECTION. SECOND DAV. The polling commenced yesterday at the usnul hour, but did not proceed with much celerity. The result of the daj will be found net in f.ivour of ttfe more popuUr Candidates. The crowd began ra swell about one o'lloik, and before three ihe ball,~ MS well as the avenues leading to it, were quite full The multitude amused themselves by indulging in cheers for their respective parlies, and in expressing murks of disapprobation toivanl:! their opponents.
