Leluii%^ffi^l)e west represent the cond'ttida of Galway in %e aame state. The principal facta ma^ be coNe-::ted froth the following e^itracti frdm tbe Galway, Tuam, and Muyo Papers' - GALWaY, march 9. On Su'n4ay,night lai^, as Mr. Burke, accompanied by his servant, arrived,.at tits gale-house, he deniauded ,entrance, .but to his astonishment, inttead of obtaining it, as lie expedted, there were two shots fired'at him fruin a vail opposite the gate. Mr. Burke fired bis pisoi in tbe direction from whence the shots caAiej and exclaimed, *' Murder'." Five other shots were likewise fired -at \i\ai, and Mr. Burke directed his servant to fire, who immediately conn-plied. Mr. Burhe at this moment had the presence of mind to call oat, in a determined Aianoer, with a view of irtlimir dating them, " t^me oh, dragoims, and seize the villains." This is supposed lo have the desired efierl of restraining them, as no doulit is entertained, if this subterfuge was not resorted to, the assassius would most probably advance and accomplish their nefarious inlenlion. The gale-keeper, in his depositions taken by that vigilant Magistrate, >imes Daly, tcq. Dunsandle, admitted that he distinctly heard the words expressed by Mr. Burkej aud the shots; but that the gale was not opened until the following morning, when his master's hat was found close lo it. It is, supposed the gale-keeper was not implicated in the transaction; but being so impre.Hoieer.� of I his Sobtt Comman'der were soon apprised uf bis situation, and instantly determined on rescuing him; for Ibis purpose upwards uf two hundred of them assembteii in a field near which the parly and prisoner were to pasb, the most of them being armed with ;iitch-forks, spades, shovels, buuks and scyibeS. Mr. lilake being appreheusiVe of An attack, particularly on seeing Ihe crowd of touiilryvcople al a distance, ordered his men to l>e ou their gaard, while he resolutely galloped up to the crowd. Judging,fVom their position, that they were fur battle; he began in the mildest manner tu reason with Ibedk. They were deaf lo bis entreaties and I'pgardlesti of his sayings,'and seemed 10 lait{>bat his absurdity, in thinking that i9 or 10 men woiild coaqoer so many ; upon which he rode back to meet his party and prepare for the op-pusitiouisis, as they might be coofidei.t of an attack, al the same time lellibg the prisoner if he attempted to escape ibat he wuuhlv that moment be shot. > Mr. Blake fearing the soldiers would be surrounded, ordered theni lo fire, thinking it wuuld he (� means of detering them, but it seemed only to eiinspera^ the Ribbonmen, wlio steOieU to t�! chising uii il^e army nio?4t,^|^mure; Mir.

This intght be trde in the fable,, bnr Mr. L-ainb would find it false as to the result, of the contest. They dSd not lUean to g6 to. steep like lite hare, and let the heavy tttrlotse tte^p beyond them. He hoped and trusted that they would keep the same iti&ble pacf to- the etttk of the race� Perhaps it would have been-, more ill favoiir of their energies had they not. beem qaite so foriunute in starting. If Mr.. Larnl* had gained u mfljoriiy of only oiie� it intghC have aroused theiu more than unw, whri> lh�t^ gained a majority each day. Be- it a� ic niit^ht^ Mr. Lamb's beit hope was despair. He wished,, however, that the electors should consider the cause more tliaii the individuals concerned for ity aiuJk-make the return attriurophaut us possible. Mr>. Lamb had, in a measure, supported fhat.iirbirtary principle uSRUitied by tbe House of Conimon9 a prison as the dvrect ro>�d to honour and fame. He (Sir Francis), rt-aily thoiight that it was no bad recommeiirlatioi; to. the )>ubiic favouri the only reward left tor independence and probity in public conduct, that a oiaik--had suffered in the public cause. Mr. L'drt�t> wa* certainly mistaken in supposing that he couii^ make-such a circumstance personally or poUtically.disadvantageous to Mr. HobliOU: sending Mr. Hobbouse to prijoa as they-did, and ihuc -there was no great ditference in being so punished without examination or defence, and being regularly convicted and punished upon the verdict of � speeiat jury, under an information file. As lo the choice of punishment between vtiedtrect imprisonment of the House of Coromnjis ai.d that which was likely to follow conviction on an information of the Attorney-General, he would ssy for bil own part, and as a tnatter of tiieiely personal taste, that he woiild rather be iinprwoned under ilje more arbitrary authority, which nm>i of iiectfs-siiy KuoD cease, and the suspension of which woujit enable a man to walkout of prisou without the ne-ce�.ity of thanking bis tyraois.
