Mr. Pai li. had u.ken popular gruunJ. On the death uf Mr. Fox, he addressed the Electors of Westininster with great vehemence a:id ctmyiJorable success. A geacra. election was announced iu tw;> or tiirec 1 months afterward^, nalmely at the end of Octt/ler his object be not to^s^eep away'c*ery estal)li.';h. j liS06. Mr. Paull .started-for this City, nominated nvent from the face of this Lmd, and f.� elfect a re. j a"J praised by Sir Fiiancis UtKurrT, �ho pernd-tohition un the plan of Maiiat ami Uokicj-m; kk, j "1 ai: meetings and dmn. r.-.

To the astonishment of all, Mr. J'allc pol.'td 4,400, while the successful Ministerial Candu'aics pulled hut 4,700. BuuiJext havi.iR dcclinid to corrupt the populice, having found it nec.s-sacy to draV purse-strings close at Brentford, and; trust to public opinion only, polled not quite half the number of votes which the least successful of the two Candidates opposed to him obtiined. Now, Tooke, Bou-dett and Co. discovered where Their strength lay. They found it 1 ly, not with ihe property and iii-leliigcnce of the Frechnideis of the County, but among the niisera.'j/e wretches, in the dirty AIlijs of Wcslminstcr. Envy and jealousy of Mr. Paull were the immediaic consequence, aud a a deep regret that Sir Fraxcis had not stood fwr Westminster instead of Middlesex. Another Ge-ucral Election unexpectedly came on in the May fullo%Ting, and this was most embarrassing.- Middlesex was formally abandoned by AdveriJse-ment, on the ostensible ground of the impossihili'y of being of nse in the�e corrupt times, and West-.i�inster was the Sicret object of ihe heart. But and n ischief. Wc spqak not no* upon ex-tracts of speeches which may havcb�en mistnte.d by Ihe Reporter, but upon uxtraeiii from bis ad-dresses puldUhed deliberately wilh his name, and p.iid fiir largely with his money. These arc nut tbe words of inomen^ry beat or temporary irrita. tionj they are worils rcsulung frpm the calm determined reflection of several years, from a steady settled feeling, from a s)stem of politico, And views tu action. Sir Fha.ncis . and his partisans know tbe people of England are attached to their King and Coostilution, though desirous of eoriecling abuses. Mr. ConBEfr, in his Weekly Paper, has traduced the King repeatedly for not paying the inctnne Tax on his private l^roperfy, and on other points, yet. at the Hampshire Meetiof, well knowing the honest dispositions of his auditors, he bettowed on the Ring the most fulsome praises, which were received with universal applause. Sir F.iiANets did the same at the Crown and Anchor.. Let not Ihe people be duped by such hypocrisy.- Sir FuASCis may nww hold measured lartgwage, and deal in sweet wotds, that he may dccoy the public into his snares; but 1.1 the uniform tenets of hi� political Hfe be investigated; and if the people a>e to assemble for the purjHise of destroy ingi how to approarh it ? If be stood �iib Mr. Paui.l, j h was pmbalde tf�e iriterest would be so dirid.d, both.wo lid fail. To oppose Mr. Paui-l was impossible ; the place had been in effect won by him, and to have opposed so zealous, so distinguished a feilotc patriot, would have been inconsistent with aliprinciplcs of hunonr and public virtue; it would have been a gro's outrage ou men's understand, ings aud feelings. 'I'be predicament was distres. sittg. After so-recent, so zealous a support. Sir FnANCiS could uotaltogcther refuse to countenance Mr.' P.*t}l't on this occasion. Mr. Faui-l adver-tiflCd c Public I^nner uf his Friends for ihc 1st if May; Si^ f'BAVCis Bt;boett ia the Chair. Tb s opportunity was taken by Sir Fra.scis jublidy to hakd off Mr. Paoli.. The aceount in the Morning Chronicle tjf the Sd of May states that- Sir FptnciS Bordelt^ Brother, lyboattended, (.'^ir Fraacis Bu^eit biasetf was ntalLe the Chair, and th.-u Mr. Pau!t'i Advertise-acflUiluid been juiblit^tf �tO.out ttsy cti3UD�i)ic&ti�a ;rith King,Lords, and Commons, let them be' fairly apprised, in die first instance, of tbe business they are undertalfing. The popular voice may now be the instrument by which bad men hope to effect their designs, but it is nut the only one they have reconrse to. "VVhch the popular sentiment bas been silent or against them, thcj' have tampered with other means, wit> th� mutineers of our navy, for instance, while in Cukl Bath Fields Prison ; and a mutiny in the arm'y seems now to be a very favourite resource. In a debatfs on the Local Militia, May the 2d, 1SC2, Sir Frascis asserted that Bri ons were unfit to be BMde�oldier� " subject to/Ac/fliA." ."Ilecould * neter gite his consent to bare th> British people �'/oJAerf,� though the Noble Lord CastlermcU WfS " the fittest mab in the whole world to submit a whole.people tp 2&e served by taking a part, uial tiiercby aidii-p, in " the dcluiiM.
