Peace, though desirable for the sake of suffering; humanity, yet broi}ght in its train some resultf that did not contribute to tht* wealth or prosperity of these countrie.s. The demands tJf war ceased lo exist, and the spring which the great exertions which Government were obliged to mak.e reiaseti itt the period of peace; btit from the greater and more paramount evils you have beett protected{ and both foreign and domestic enemies are now no longer to be dreaded. It is true you have borne great privations and endured great sufferings with a patience and a fortitude that cannot be surpassed, and I am sure seldom equalled ; but that the evilSjUnd privations vvith which you have had to contend, and wliich you 40 nobly combated, have proceeded from the causes to which they are generally attributed, I have ito hesitation to say, is unfounded aud insup^ portable. It bus been said, for instance, that the -^nion, a measure which! am mnstiiaturaHyiiivlit> ed to support, has deprived the cotintry of its resident landholders. I do not beUeve that this fact can be jnaintaiaed; for instance, the county of IDown can Boast at this moment of the same number of-landholders as it enjoyed before the Union, and so with ipaoy qther counties I could name. iBut if, from the nef:es5ity of performitigour duties in.Parliament, a certain niHnber of the nobility and gentry are ob-4iged to absent themselves from their native country, l^t (t not be forgotten on the other side, that, from ,tN constant coUisioa laind bitmeen thi� and the It >s jester J^nntries--froi9 the iconstant intro^JiCtton of true, there vp�� t�o_.i:p4jljr.|4rffi^iPolNf J*�coTerJe� HtwI'Dew-idvesijons^your ^teflj of as those that_ were urged ,6f_the;>Vble L6rd--no} | agrieulture is vastly steeliorated-your-coitjvation THE ELECTION AT DOfVNPATRICK, on the 2 1st instant. [From � 77i� /rWtman."] ^Concluded from our Paper of Yesterday) Lord CASTI.EREA6H then rose anid addressed fhe assembly at length, wtlh considerable energy, and often with considerable effect. He! appeared to be particularly anxious to deliver his sentiments .on this occasion ; and it will be acknowledged by every auditor, that, ih the geiieralarrangetneiit of his speech, and in many particular passages, hi4 Observations were heard with great and undivided interest; at) individual, in a crowded Coiirt, had the spirit or the talent to stfaiid Yip and unravel a speech, which, from the beginning almost to the end, cotild be demonstrated a tiiiished piece of sophistry and ingenu- j ity ;^at once the evidence of talent and political dexterity; keeping out of view every consideration which could make against theobjectjand embodying those topics of deliiNion which could most effectually blind the understandings �of a kind, credulous, arfd unthinking audience.-rJBut to the $ppech: "I feel great pleasure (said his Lordship) it) being able once more to precent myself before ray constituents of this great and independent couuty> to give to them an jircount of my pariiaraenlary conduct, and tb return them my most sincere thanks for the honour they have now been pleased to confer on tne, 1 believe for the sixth time, in electing me :their Sepresenta-tive in the Legiskiture of the British Empiie. That I have endeavoured, to the best of my ability, to execute the trust with whicii you invested aie-that I have performed the duties I owe to yon and to roy cotintry, iti the best manner { was able, I think 1 may fairly and justly flatter myself, after the honourable attestation you have given this moment of the good opinion which you entertain of me, To, be elected so often the representiitive of a county so rich-, so enlightened, and so important as the county of Down, is an honour of which any man may fairly be proud. I have now enjoyed that honour no less than six times, and now, for this time, I have the additional gratiffcatiou of being able to say, that I am elected by the unanimous voice of the entire county. It is perfectly true that 1 have had the misfortune of differing with some of tlie most respectable individuals on subjects of great political importance; but though I differed from those persons politically, yet 1 did not entertain the less personal regard for them ; nor would I be less anxious to render the services of a zealous and warm partiality. It is' (said his Lordship}, one of the finest leiUures oi llie happy constitution under which we live, tiiat political truthis best discovered by a perpetual conflict of the understandings of itide|ieiideiit men ; that the differetice of sentim'entsi the discordance of opinions among public men, lead to the establisiimeiit of those sound political conclusions which could never be otherwise obtained when such divisions and such discussions did not take place ; and though it may be the fortune of my Noble colleague and myself to take tlifferent views of the same measure,-yet, I believe, his Lordship will admit, that such a difference creates no division of kind feeling, and that though political opponents, we may be, with perfect consisteticy, personal friends. , I have differed from some of the most vaiunble individuals in the county, which has now unanimously elected me. 1 knew that they diffef" ed witii me con.�c4eiv|iously^ and. I. respected their; motives and tiieir. feelings, though. I laniented their opposition. I seek the same concession which I freely allow to others ; and 'fonly ask'for that ih-dulgettce which the conscience of'every'ttonCst mUii should claim, namely, to be: pettnitteil, with per-' feet freedom, to yield4o jt>:,dict.ate�, and obey its' suggestions. , , , ,. _ "This was the regulation of tnycbiidnct duriiig a increased-the'face of your country improved, and a rivalship of agricultural Skill and industry alre-ddy almost^ffected. 'I give credit to the Union for all those great accessions of national wealth, and I stn certtftti that every revolviitg year will add to that streogtl), if the peace of ihe country be not interrupted -by the baneful and pernicious spirit of dis-cordi It is true there are some dissatisfied spirits (as everwill exbt under the happiest form of Government, or the most parental and kind administration of it), there are some spirits of turbulent agitation, that would corrvnlse the country in order to secure their own-ascendancy, and to rise on the roins of social peace and social order, would be reckiesj of the calamities that would follow to the coaimunity and care little' about the happiness of their country, if they conid only gratify their ambition ; but these infatuated and remorseless incendiaries and agitators shou'ld not forgot that it is in vain for titem to raise their puny arm against thestability of a Constitution which has weathered the storms by which it has been assailed. To them I woiild say, cease to convulse the coramtiuity, or to flatter your followers with a hope which can never be realised-the resources and energies of the British Empire despise your struggles; it is not the Government you'can injure; tl is not the Constitution you can overtlirow ; it is not that system of administration which the experience of centuries has made dear to those who live under it-you may slaughter the iVIinisters-you may annihilate a few individuals by the dagger or the pistol, but hundreds of able and valuable caen, tqually well qualified, perhaps their superiors, will be found to succeed. Men may be cut oft"; btit the constitution is immortal,-[Lend cheering Jrom the entire Cottrr.)-To the people of this country I would say, with all the fervency of a mind sincerely devoted tolheir happiness, baiiii^h from your doors tliose foreign agitators-drive them from your ffresides- suffer them not into the bosom of your familias- keep out the poison that would corrode your community to the hcart-^eiicoiirage the industrious- aitimate the laborious-be content with the fortune allotted to you->-persevere in your pro[)erplaces to ' maintain a steady and upright conduct, and do not suft'er vour minds to be carried away by considera--tions that must ultimately injure yoii, and your domestic peace and happiness will be preserved- your coiiiiiry will prosper, and comfort and nnani-luiiy will be tile necessary coiiitnuence. 15nt why need I thus exhort you, for surely lliere cminof be found a county where tlie higher and lower orders are so closely connected-where the Ma-gistrate is more disposed to administer tlie laws with firmness and imparttatity-where the poor 'man is more protected, or the rich more loved ?
