Tliis recommendation influenced the conduct of the great proporliou 'of the ihhabilsints.. Such, however, of our fellow-citizeils �s disbelieved the evidence in support>of the charges against her Majt?1y, or thought the abandonment of the Bill a virtual ac-quitttl, and tbi)se who were apprehensive of having their windows broken by a misguided mob, illuminated their houses, and displayed devices, in some instances at no small expense; but it is with pain we state,that the uni/ltmined populace broke the win-dowsof several persons who did not conceive theoc-cnsion justified them in lighting up their houses. A number of windows were broken at the White Lion and Talbot Inns, at the Custom-House, and in the houses of several individuals in Redcliff-street. Broad-street, &c. Ou Tuesday and Wednesday the illuminations were partially repeated, but, we believe, without any repetiliou of wanton behaviour on the part of the spectators, although the latter was expected to be " the grand night." MALTON. Since the arrival of the acquittal' of the Queen this town h�?, for the lust two or three days, been a continual scene of rejoicing. On Tuesday last the town was generally illuminated, and, considering the shortness of notice, many appropriate devices ^ere exhibited. The day following,' a' iiucherous aiid' i^espectable meeting of the inhabitants was held at the Town HalU to present an Address of Congratulation to her Majesty, and to Petition tbe King to dismiss the pre->ent Ministers from his cotincil ; and in the evening the Geijilemen of the lown gratified the exulting females with a splendid ball, 100 cards of invitation liaviiig beeu^ issued for^tJcrasjjLn.^ '1^^^^ DONCA'STiERf IJoVfcMBER l?-On Tuesday the bells were rung here durin;; the day, in consequence of the fate of the Bill of Pains uiid Penalties against the Queen. Similar demonstrations have taken place in the neighbouring towns, IINCOLN, NOVEMBER I6. The arrival of the intelligence of Saturday was followed by tlie ringing of bells in most of the churches Below-hill ; in the evening two large bonfires were lighted, and a numerous a,>isemblage of the itihdbilants of all classes paraded the town with music, &c. by torchlight till a laie hour ; and we are sorry to add, that after the populace were left to themselves they jiroceeded to break the windows of sevend persons who Iiad expressed sentiments adverse lo the popular opinion.- Two respectable clergymen, the Ilev. W. Hett and tbe Rev. G. U. Keiii, were the principal sufferers on Saturday night : at the house of the latter Gentleman, between 30 and 40 panes, were broken, and a stone which �as thrown through the nursery window fell on the pillow of a bid on which a joung child was sleeping, and within a few inches of Its head. On Monday night the moh renewed their perambulations, iind (notwithstanding the constable.^ were sent out) vented their rage on the windows of T. A. Smitii, E�q. demolishing nearly all those next to ihe street. On Tuesday night a large number of .ipecial constables were sworn in, and peace has since been preserved. The day before the arrival of the news that tbe Bill was withdrawn, and in the |)ro�pect that then existed of its being seiit lo the Commons, above fifty respectable citizens, including five of 'the Aldermen, signed a Requisition to the Mayor, requesting him tu call a meeting of the inhabitants to consider of a.petition to that lion. House on the subject; and the Mayor (G. Steel, Esq.) expressed his intention of complying with their request. Preparations are nmv making for a general illumination to take place this night (Thursday) ;-and we heur tlut a t'ouulry gentleman iii the neighbourhood intends lo give a large quantity of ale, as well as an ox to be roasted whole, towards the ainasemenls of the day. On Tuesday anil Wednesday vej-y numerous and resijectable parties of the Queen's, friends dined together at the Green Dragon amf Saracen's Head Inns, and this day it is expected that an equally respectable company will meet at the Rein Deer,and that an Address of Congratulation to the Queen will be proposed, . > ' There was great rejoicing at Caistor/tlie moment tlie nrws arrived of the.

The Provo?t honest John Hull such an immense sum of mooey, was vtrongly expressed in the village of Tranent, oil Tuesday evening, !4th current ; with the exception of three houses, the whole village, containing about 1,600 inhabitants, was spontaneously and brilliantly illuminated, and various devices were to be seen, expressive of the feelings on the occasion ; a bonfire was kindled, a large band of young men with white favours, preceded by music, paraded the streets shouting " Long live Qneen Caroline !" and every face beamed with joy, A number of the inhabitants repaired to the Plough Inn and drank the HealTb of her Majesty-The Queen's Counsel-� Loril Erskine, &c, with enthusiasm. They hail the failure of the late proceedings as llie Irinmph of innocence, justice, public opinion, and truth, and pray (as they have all iilonsr prayed for the Queen) that all future Bills of Pains and Penalties may* share a similar fate. All passed off without the lea-t disturbance or accident, except the breaking ql" (our panes of glass in the unltghted houses." The iMngislrates and Town Council of .^nnan, in consequence of the Queen's acquittal before .ihe House (it Lords, ordered a general illumination;.of that burgh ; and no order from any Magistrate-W'a* ever obeyed with more promptitude, for not a housr. from Ihe lowest to the highest,but viewed witli ea.cb other in their emulation i'or the triumph of iivjurt^ majesty; in fact, ihe splendour exhibited from every window of the town was not only grand,-., bljt indeed piesented a very imposing spectacle t�aU interested in tbe prosperity of their loyal and independent burgh.

No sooner was the news of the Queen's glorious defeat of her enemies made kn'*wii in Mui^ai'e, than the flag was hoisted upon the church steeple-^, the bells rang out a merry peal, and every countenance benmed with the smiles of happiness aifd joy. The deputation who presented the address of tbe inhabitants of this place to her Majesty," appointed Thursday last for a general illnmiDaiiQU, and a hand-bill was issued, reminding the pablit;, that " us every Englisbmau had an undoubieti right to enjoy his own opinion, thoac who injureid the property of any persons who diil not light np, were the very worst enemies of the Queen."
