TO THE WORTHY AND INDEPENDENT LIVERY OF LONDON. Gentlemen, NEED not state, as un iticitement to you> exertions, that the issue of the Election for the Cily of London is nut a subject of local, but of universal national interest; aud that it decides poiiils not merely of a personal nature between Candidates, but iuflueures the feelings of Ministers iu the administration of the Government of Ihe Kingdom. If therefore you are the Friends of Reform and Civil Li-beily, which I have atways considered you, and are not dis. posed to compromise a cause Io which 1 have dedicated my life, and in the promotion of iVhich 1 have bitherlo met with your energetic and generous support, you will forthwith come to the poll, am! not be deterred by any consideialioii or calculation from immediately giving your votes in my favour: presoming that my long-lricd devotion to public liberty, and my known attachment to yonr rights and pri-vilege/i, have contiraied your confidence in my exertions and character, I have the honour to be. Gentlemen, Your faithful and devoted Servant, ROBERT WAITHMAN. Guildhall, .March 9, 1920. TO THE INDEPENDENT LIVERY OF LONDON. Gentlemen, YOU are respectftilly, hut earnestly, called upon by thT! Committee of Air. Alderman Waithman to support, with your characteristic energy, that great cause of Reform -and Cuustitulional fierdom in which this patriotic Candidate has passed his active and useful life; and to maintain your own consistency of principles, and your civic ana elective rights, by an immediate vote. The Committee hope, as this cause is that of all well-in-fiirmed and fiee-born Englishmen, that every independent Liveryman will volwitaiily do his dnty, and come at once to Ihe poll, without waiting for personal sulicilalioiis, or expecting Ihose exertions of undue influence which belong only to a corrupt cause, the advocates of which look for fulure indemnity from the public money. The state of tbe poll at the end of Ihe third day proves merely the well-known fact, tlint dependant votes can be brought up at command, while independent Voters, who are solicited on public principle, in favour of Alderman Waith-man, will come only at their own convenience: but when it may be feared that tardiness gives encouragement to the hopes (if an adverse party, the Committee trust that Livery-nieu wlio propose to support Alderman VValhmao will ou uo account withhold tlieir votes. In Ihe glorious number of 4,003 free votes, given at the last eleclion for Alderman VVai'.hman, the Committee have a rock of support on which they coiifiilenlly rely for lilli-male success; and ammittre consider him as entitled not only to the support ufall his former constituents, but to Ihe vole of every other Liveryman who respects the honour of the City of London, consistency of character in its Representatives, the rights of ihe Livery, and the constitutional freedom of the People of England.

Mr. StOHCH came forward, and was resreiveci with loud applause. He said, that twenty or lliirly years had now elapsed since he hiid iir�t taken part ill tiie ati'airs of the electors of Westminster. Often as it liad been liis lot to attend with sutisfactiun on such occasions, he assured ihein he iiud never made his appearance there before with more real pleasure to himself than on the present-^Applause. J-He never came to perform a task with more real satisfaction. What was it he came there to perform ? To recommend to their choice a man lung known and dtar to them, whose long-tried and faithful 'services they, must have all often nfipreciated, a man not only most able, but whose character in every view of it was truly worthy-need he name Sir Francis Burdett?-Great applause J.-To call on theai to elect-unauimoosty such a man, waji only to a(k them not to disgrace themselves, for they wonid all be disgraced if Sir Francis Burdett was not triumphantly re-elected. Even long before the worthy Baronet had been iheir Member, he was known to them for his patriotism and independence. His oniy course had been that of a man bent upon the promotion of the real interests of the people, determined to support their rights against every attack, and to meet their enemies in all their oppositions.-fGreat applause.)-He was never a tergiversator, on no principle had he ever turn, ed his back ; but above all, iiud he heeti the unsparing and uncompromising advncjte of that great question, which was not only paramount to every other, but without which no other was worth any thing, which would make good Mi-nisters serviceable, and bad ones innoxious-he meant a real ReforiB in the representation of the people. The electors of Westminster conld choose no man who refrained from giving an unequivocal pledger on this great question-[opplavsej--and who woald not promise to procure, to the �?-most of his power, not some little, petty, incomplete Reform, but a real and substantial one, which might fairly be considered a representation of the people.- [applause.)-When he called for this.unequivocal test, he meant to make no per�on&l.allusions to any body. He would not detain ihem any longer, but propose the unanimous re-election nf their able, tried, and efficient Ute member. Sir Francis Burdett.-f applause.J Mr. Peaese seconded the worthy I^aronet'* nomination. Sir Francis Bl'RBEtt tjjen came forward, aud was received with ihe loudest atclamarions. As 300u as silence could be obtained lie cuiiiinenced by lamenting that a severe cold would, he feared, prevent bis speech from being audible to Hiany of those whom he had now the honour to adilress. Flattered, indeed, he was by the gratifying leception they gave him, and by the very kind manner ii) which Mr. Starch had introducfd him to their notice. It convinced him that he had never disregarded their political feelings or sentiments, and that he was thought worthy of the continued coiiB.dence'of so enlightened a body as the Electors of Westminster. It was at all times gratifying lo him to meet with so large a body �f his fellow-countryuten. Such meelfngs were thejindisputable right of freemen, aud the ancient and universal privilege of Englishmen, It was one of the few retuainiiiK rights which it^emained for the last Parliament lo sap, and the present was tjne of the only occasibna in which the law, as it wa* now fixed, allowed them the exercise of \U-(Cries of " .SAa�i�.'")- It would be needless for him to expatiate ou the scandalous invasions which the eondtituiiott htfil suffered from the late corrupt House of Cotjimoii-. a House so "corrupt,that he considered its dissolution as a fortunate circumstance for the cuutltry at large.-(Apptause.J-Its candalous acts Were too well known to require a recapitulstion Of,'thetti here.
