Strand. THE NEW SCHEME. S we are Contractors for the present Lottery, we feel it peculiarl^our duty to notice an Advertise. want which has this day appeared in the Public Papers, finned " T. Bish." After a series of garbled and unfair stale-iiieiils of the Scheme, he has proceeded to give, what bis va. iiiiy indnrcs him to think will bea finishing blow, the denuii-tiaiion of his individual disapprobation. The Scheme is be. turf the Public; and with the knowledge thatj iu every poiut  calculation, it is more advantageous tu the adventurer than I lie last or any of the late Lotteries, we set the utmost i H'orN of roalevoleuce at defiance, and court the miniitest investisjation of its plan and principle. The Public will prrhips think that they have a suiScient clue to unravel \hif proceeding, when they are informed that, before this i.riiiery was taken, we were under the painful necessity of r.-fiisinir to adniit a cen-iain party into the coalition we had 'nrmcd. This objection did not arise from any personal ''fctlin;) on our parts, but solely from our knowledge of un. |.|.nBjnt and eiiharrtusing circwmslances, which it would hni he dtlicate in us to particularize, although they were i.f siifijcirnt noloriety at the time to render it imperative on l.oiiD Liverpool to refuse that party's bidding for the l.olicry.-We are the Public's most obliged and Obedient Servants, HAZARD and Co., Royal Exciiange.

TO THE GENTLEMEN, CLERGY, AND FREEHOLD. ERS OF THE COUNTY OF MIDDLESEX. Gentlemen, ISHOULD be unworthy of the honourable slalion in which yon kindly placed me during four successive Parliament!!, if I hesitated distinctly to avow the principles on which 1 once more presume to solicit your independent suffrages. I yield to no man in firm att�chment to Civil and Religious Liberty, blended as it immutably is with our admirable Constitution ; and I declare myself, in Ihe truest sense of the words, the Friend of the People, for the cause of the people can never be separated from the cause of their King and country. Acting on these principles in the conscientious discharge of my public duty, I have, to the utmost of my power, resisted the progress of sedition and blasphemy. I have sap. ported those measures which subsequent events prove to have been indispensably necessary for the preservation of the Constitution ; and in the anxious promotion of all real and prarlical iiiiprovement in our Laws and Constitution, I have uniformly opposed all vague, visionary, and dangerous pro. jects of reform. It has been my constant endeavour, during the last fourteen years that 1 have been your Representalive, faithfully, zealously, and diligtnlly to promote yonr real interests, by devoting my personal attention to the arduous and important duties of this metropolitan County. I therefore confidently trust, that hy your votes and inle-rest you will sanction my -parliamentary conduct, and that your early attendance at the poll will replace me ia the dis. linguished situation to tehich it is the highest object of my ambition to aspire. In this anxious hope I have the Ktuiour to be, with the greatest respect. Your obedient and faithful Servant, WILLIAM MELLISH. Bush-hill Park, March 20,1820. state of the poll. W.

THIRD DAY-(Concluded.) the king V. hont and others. Jonathan Andrews examined by Mr. scarlett.-I reside at Endham Hall, near Manchester; I was head-constable in Manchester in August lasl; I have some property there; I was on the ground about 12 o'clock on the 16tb of August; it was arranged that a line of constables should exteud from the bouse where Ihe Magistrates were to the hustings, or as near as possible to them; when 1 went tu Ihe ground there was a line of constables formed from Mr. Buxton's honse to the hustings, wbich were then erected; shortly after the hustings were removed several yarfig backvvards; I took no-tice of the different parties aa they arrived ; they inarched in regular military order, aa I have seen soldiers march; about every fourth or fitlli man appeared to have some command over Ihe rest; they were five or six abreast; a great number had sticks, and many carried them as a soldier car. rivs his musket, that is erect upon the left shoulder; I saw a great number on the ground wilk slicks, but they did not carry them iu that form; I saw many flagu aud caps of liberty; when each division arrived there was tre-meuduus shouting by those who were on and round the hustings; there was also waving of sticks in the air; t was near enough to the hustings lb recognize Jones, whom 1 know, but I did nut hear what he said. I was upon the ground when Mr. Hunt arrived-ifr^a carriage. There was then an immense crowd of people assembled, and the crowd which accompanied him was also immense. I have before seen as many people assembled together as I on that day saw. I think there were between 60,000 and 70,000 persona present, they consisted mostly of labouriug people; there were very few respectable' persona present. 1 conceived so large a meeting could have no other tendency thai) to overawe Ihe respectable inhabitauta of the lo.wn aud its anthori-ties. The people appeared tu have come from a distance. It was a very dusty day; I think it was'a warm day. Cross-examined by Mr.'barrow.-Junes was one of the first on the hustings. 1 do not know that he was employed as a mechanic to erect the hustings. I csbnot tell whether be was directing the crowd nut to press .too close or not. Cross-examined by Mr. Hnnt.-1 thinkit waa the division that bad a banner with " Equal Repr�iientation or Death,'* upon it, that marclied wjfb their sticks shouldered. It was a black flag; I saw them' ou-the^groiindj the sticks were very large and thick. The peuplt^ who atteBded the meeting appeared to me have come generally with sticks. I said I thought the Bieetitig amounted to 60,000 or; 70,000 persons. , The sticks J saw were not sneh as Igetienilly see people use in walking-they were larger; 1 caaiiut say whether they were as long as walking sticks; I was not near enough to judge exactly. The size of the sticks varied (Haterially, according lo ihe size of the men. I think they were generally four or five feet long; they were not all as thirk as my wrist. I do nut know from uhrnce the psrty hrnring the black flag came. Tlicy were marching a breast; 1 do nut say �Uat every m.m had bis stick sliouldernl; but llnry carried them generally in tliat position. Some of the cuiniihtndi'ra. also had sticks. I think that division consisted uf 3,000 or 4,000 men; they had sticks generally. I cannot tell how many sticks were am(>ng the whole party; I cannot swear that half of the party, pr that one in four had slicks; I am positive there was more than one in ten or one in five so armed.. 1 have already stated,- lhat when they came upon the eround they ahuutei), atid waved the slicks in the air. I had no particular companion on that day ; we had one hundred constables on Ihe field, hut t caunol point out any one who saw iliis at Ihe same time that 1 did. After the party had waved Iheir sticks, they marched towards the hustings in Ihe same order tiiey bad come upon the field. I heard no ordef of " Shoulder arms " I saw no use made of those sticks in attackiug the cuustables; 1 saw no such attack made. 1 saw other divisions arrive, who appeared tafaa,re sti(:k9 alsit.^ liiey; might have . ipad$..i)se..of their stilts withoHt my mreing them. I was cbiefly^ilh the Magistrates, and therefore had out so good an'oppoitunity of -seeing what took pUce. I saw very few women, and very faw girls indeed. The space of grouud was so large tint I could not make an estimate of the number of females. I was near the Magistrates' boOse when you arrived. I was not at any time near enough to the hnstiugs lo hear what you said. 1 saw neither firearms, swords, or. any other offensive weapon, but slicks with the crowd. I saw no per-son that day but at the infirmary. I saw no person struck, nor did I see auy of the constables make use of their staves. I had no occasion to make u.>ie of mine. Thomas Hardtnan examined by Mr. LiTTLEDALE.-I was a special constable on the 16lh of August; when 1 first got to the ground (nbont 11 o'clock] there was but a few people assembled; soon after several parties came in in regular mi-litary order, carrying sticks. Those lhat I saw carried them in the left hand as soldiers do muskets, and seemed to have command over the others. They marched towards the hustings, and were cheered as they went up. I heard two people speak from the hustings before the whole party arrived. The first speech wis, " There has been an order given to stand six yards back from the stage, otherwise yon will afford your enemies an opportunity of rushiug in with their cavalry and all their corruption." The other speech was soon after, I know not which was first, it was as follows-" If you had ever so stout-hearted a leader, you will do no good unless you stand firm to your post."-Both these speeches were made before Mr. Hunt arrived. Jones spoke one of the speeches, the first I believe. I know not who spoke the other. 1 saw Mr. Hunt come up in a barouche, attended by a large crowd. I was then at a distance, and could Hot judge how many came up with him. He got upon the hustings, which were at thai time removed eight or ten yards farther from where the constables stood, than they were on their first erection. I think there were 60,000 or 70,000 persons present. The alarm in Manchester was very great then. Cross-examined by Mr. Barrow.-1 have au uncle named J^mes Hardman, a brewer, Jones was some lime since em. played by him;ili-b, 1 understood, though I did not bear it from lU*vr li}-*', lim undoubted testimony should be had ofwhullmik i.-lace, un.l this was Ihe first of the procccdiiisia. 1 did iml lUcii fcnou/ Mr. Henry Horton, a Reporter for 77
