need. I think it is obvious then that that bounty of Providence goes far to account for the improvement which has taken place in our manufactures. (Hear.) The noble Lard then proceeded to the subjects of free trade and the corn laws. There were, he said, three doctrine# in relution to thesequestions :?the old principle oFprotection for all branches ol domestic industry; the new doctrine of perfect freedom ; and th- intermediate one, which proceeded on the ground ol temporary expediency and maintained that changes ought to be gradual. Hut the fault of the present plan of Sir Robert Peel was, that it was inconsistent with the genera! principles which he himself propounded and acted upon in other cases. Witn respect to almost all articles of commerce he had adopted a moderate duty; but with respect to an article in which the great majority of both Houses of Parliament are deeply interested, he had laid on a duty of 40 per cent.; and that duty. too, was a changing and shifting duty, irreconcilcabte with every sound principle. In regard to the complaints made by agriculturists against Sir K. Peel for not declaring that he would suffer no alteration to be made in the corn laws, the noble lord said, "When I see gentlemen at agricultural meetings, after expressions ol distrust of the Right Hon. Bart. [Sir K Peel] much greater than I, one of the leaders of the Opposition, ever ventured to express?[hear, hear]?hid him openly come forward,declare that the'eorn law shall not be changed and hind himself to it in all perpetuity, I must say such men make the? most extravugant and absurd request that ever was math- of any statesman in this country. [Hear, hear ] The Right Hon. gentleman told uslast session that he did not mean to alter the corn law las: year, but that, with respect to the future, be must judge of the condition of the country, and of the effect of this as of any other commercial law of the country. I thought that the only answer the Bight Hon. gentleman" could give?and I should certainly he very much surprised II I found him now saying?'I am so ena. mored of my law?I think it in all respects soperfecr, that I will stand by it to all eternity."? [Ib-ar.] I should be surprised u lie made mat declaration ; and I think that the agricultural cry is a most unreasonable one." [Hear, hear 1 The noble lord concluded by saying that he could not vote with the honorable member for Montrose, and should give a decided negative to the amendment of the member for Rochdale. Sir Robert Pkel began by paying a well-merited compliment to the noble lord and the hon. gentle man who had moved and seconded the address. He condemned in strong language the project of the hon. member for Rochdale (Mr. P. Crawford) for stopping the supplies. "I can conceive," said the Hon. liaronet, "nothing more injurious to the popular principle of the Constitution than to abuse the privileges we possess, and which are calculated for our guidance on great occasions. The power of moving constant adjournments is a power of which it may he right that individuals or a minor! ty should continue tn possession, but it is entrusted to them. like other powers, under a great responsibility?(hear, hear)?and they arc seriously allerling the popular principle, and injuring those interests of which they are, I am bound to suppose, th?- sincere and strenuous advocates, if they lightly call into action instruments which ought only to he invok"d on great occasions." (Clteers.) lie adverted with great satisfaction to the connection between Kngland and France. It was an amity founded upon mutual interests; and had a beneficial influence on every country in Kit rope, und even beyond theAtlantic. lie illustrated the beuelits of this good understanding by a reference to Greece. Everything there was proceeding smoothly, which would not tie the case were there a discordance created l?v a French and an Enirlish onrtv. From Irish mat t'*rs, he stud, he felt it his duty, fur the present, wholly to abstain. He then entered upon the subject of the Corn Laws. After adverting to the general principle, mentioned by Lord John Russell, that, in a country like this, with such complicated relations, large vested interests, and amount of taxation, it would be impossible to apply doctrines abstractedly right without great danger and injury; lb Right lion. Bart, said that this was a principle in which he entirely concurred with the noblalord. There is, however, (said the Right Hon. Bart ), this difference between us?the difference between the fixed duty and the graduated scale. Now, here I retain my own opinions. (Hear, hear.) Agreeing in the general principle I have stated with the noble lord, he proposes to secure his protection by a fixed dutv, and lie says members of Parliament are liable to the invidious imputation ol being actuated by personal interests in advocating the sliding-scale. Surely the same suspicion attaches to the fixed ditty plan. (Hear, heai.) The noble lord might say lie proposed it for revenue; but if carried high enough,lie knows that,however intended, onerate it would as protection?(hear, hear) ? and that if he would find it difficult to resist the argument, " Why, if you iintiose a duty on foreign corn, should it not be equally imposed on domestic eornl"?(hear, hear)?barley, malt, would be referred to against him?(hear, hear)?and he would b?- asked, " Why, if he taxed foreign wheat and domestic barlev. he should not in like manner have an import at the mill on all corn in this country 1" ?(hear)?that in, if he were sincerely desirous of producing, not protection, hut revenue. (Ilear.) And with what truth could he otherwise say to the wealthy agriculturists, " You have no right to protection 1? I regret I am obliged to some extent to give ,t yon, by reluctantly imposing a fixed duty on foreign corn imported " (Hear,hear.) The noble Lord would find it difficult to persuade those whom he wished to conciliate to dopt this distinction between a fixed duty and u graduated one. (Hear.) Sir, I stated last yeaf the goveriuneut were not prepared to alter the existing corn law; hut when pressed to make a declaration on the part of the government, at all times and under alt circumstances I would adhere to the law existing, I said such a declaration would be inconsistent with our duty to th>- country and the Crown. (Hear, hear.) 1 do not re|>?at this for the purpose of securing any escape for the government. The noble Lord says we may maintain the law or repeatItj hut that it is inionssibl* we should adopt u fixed duly. Sir (the KigluIIon. Haronet uttered the next words witn a sort of shrug, and with a peculiar, quiet emphasis) I 'lo not exactly know what niuy be impossible.? (Laughter.) f-ir (exclaimed the Right Hon. Haronef in a louder tone,) I hope those who laugh do not thereby imply an opinion that I am making reservations. Wh? never the opinions of the agriculturists take that extraordinary turn which sometimes it has been represented they have ulreudy taken in favor of a fixed duty, I am inclined to think the noble Lord will be the party to propose such a measure, and not myself. (Cheeisfrom the agricul lural Members.) The experience we have had o( the present law has not shaken my preference for a gr.iau ted duty?(hear)?and, although I consider it inconsistent with my duty to make engagements for adherence to existing lawsunder all circumstances, in order to conciliate support, I can say that the government have never contemplated, and do not contemplate, any alteration in the existing law. (t'heers from the agriculturists.) The prices of com since the law came into oi>eratioti have been nx>'a us iii any |>rior period, and an moderate.? They lijjye varied only from 50s. to 52 s. tor the last tour or five montfis: and the prices for 54 year* past h.ive been, in only seven years, lower than the average prices for th" last few months?in all the remaining 47 years, the prices were higher: conserinently, neither on account of immoderate not of varying prices have we found any reason to change our opinion an to the existing law. The Government, I repeat, should not hind themselves hy any declarations, adherence to which would be inconsistent with duty ; hut 1 again declare they never have contemplated, and do not at present contemplate, any alteration in the law. (Hear, hear).? Tlir Kignt*Hon. Baronet?said, in conclusion?We do, then, meet Parliament under improved circumstances. [Hear, hear ] Booking to our foreign policy, we have adjusted the unestion pending with th United States in a country with which it is scarcely less important to maintain amicable relations than with France. [Hear, hear.] We have removed those causes ot disturbance which existed two years ago, and then threatened the dis?f .min?KI. r..l?.

I trust it in ay be carried to a still greater extent. 1 know that there yet exists in many parts of the country great distress, hut we are justified in luting, in the I "rformance of our duties toward the Crown and t!i? country .that as to our foreign, our commercial, and our financial relations, we present ourselves before an assetithfeu Parliament, as having fulfilled tli> expectations we holdout with respect to the prosj of the empire and the effects of the meahi'' we proposed,and that we have not been wanting in our duty to our sovereign and to the nation. [Cheers.! Lord Pai.mkh-ion spoke chiefly in justification 4>i the foreign policy of the late (iovernment, and in inculpation of thsit of the present. He went over our relations with France, Spain, and the I nited States, and found something unsatisfactory in the Hate oft he m all, arising out of the mismanagement of the present Government. Mr Roew.vk blamed the silence, both of the tfpecch and of the House, on the important subject of Ireland, winch he ascribed to concert between the two leading parties Lord Ho wick denied this imputation, and said that Ireland, hi this moment, was an improper subject for discussion.

Money abundant, w trade brisk, the marks were buoyant, and the great ol hives of industry in the north were alive with uc- ly tivity. The price of Consols touched a rate higher pi than they had reached since 1K37; all descriptions sc of Railway Stock were rising in valne. ta The Globe of Friday states, on the authority oi a city correspondent, that the Bank of England is , t'1 to obtain a renewal of its charter from the present government. It is said that in return the hank is ir to assist the government in any plan for reducing 8' the interest of consols, by advancing a large sum " of money to pay off those creditors of the nation ^ who may be unwilling to submit to the reduction. J' Bank stock had risen in consequence. The Times of Saturday treats the subject slightingly, and the * Morning Herald of the same date contend* that the * Globe has been mystified.

Trim, nr Christiana Gilmottr.?It will be recol- Sl lected that this lady was apprehended in the United States, on a charge of murder, and brought hack to Scotland for trial. At the High Court of Edinhurgh, on Friday, she was tried for the tuurder ol John Gilmour, lier husband, at Incbinnan, in Janu- D ary, lrt-43. Mrs. Gilmour was the first person surrendered on a criminal charge by the United '-id States, under the Asliburton Treaty. Her appear- 3(1 unce is attractive, her hearing decorous. She was the daughter of Mr. Cochrane, a substantial far- ::: mcrin Ayrshire : and her husband was the son of ~t ' a neighbor in a similar condition of life. She was about 23 years old at the time of her marriage: her <? husband about thirty. An attachment had been Hi formed live years before, between Christiana and 11 John Anderson, another neighbor; but the gir! was G ormgea ny ner parents 10 marry (nimour. me Glasgow Saturday Post says, on unquestionable authority, " that though they lived together fot (3 six weeks, and regularly retired to the same bed- j j room, Mrs. Gilinour never undressed during the 15 whole time." At the trial, it was stated that tliev Id lived unhappily together. In a declaration which 17 she had made, Mrs. (iilmour said that she was un- 1H braided by her husband, while he was lying ill, ,?1 with having broken his heart ; to which she re- ? plied, that ne had already broken hers, that he was not her choice, and that she could never feel p towards him as a wife should feel towards a husband. Such were the circumstances under which, 21 six weeks after their marriage, Gilmour fell ill, 3J with all tin- symptoms of having been poisoned by -., arsenic, and died ; it was proved that a vont morrem examination of his remains detected the presence of arsenic; and that his wife had purchased some. On the other hand, it was made clear that arsenic was habitually used at their farm for the de- .47 struction of rats ; that Mrs. Gilmour attended her husband sedulously during his illness, made no op- 3S position to calling in medical advice; and, in short, showed no evidences of conscious gni|t. and node- ^ sire for concealment: sho, herself, wished the anthorities to unhury the body. In 11 letter, which ? she wrote to Anderson, alter Gilmour's death, hut before she went to Aniericii, she complained that 34 she was sent away, though she did not say by at whom; she said that otherwise she would have staid " till all was settled about .John Gilmour's 3J death ;" and admitted that she had bought arsenic. 1* but to take it lu rself. In her declaration, she said that she bought it for poisoning rats. These were the principal pwmt- of the evidence on both sides. The jury returned a verdict ol "Not proven;" 4 which was greeted by applause in court.

Sir rancia Burdett died, at his town residence, on the Id ult.

The absence of frost* sufficiently severe to leek the progress of the latter, as well as the vagrs of tne slug, lias been much complained of many quarters, especially in the southern and estern counties, in parts of which it has been and necessary to re-sow the land, from the i lanta iving been nlmosf completely destroyed. Such unpiaints, however, cannot he considered general, nee we are led to the conclusion that the present isition of agriculture ia, under all circumstances, lite as flattering?viz., for the luture prospect of :op.?? as could be reasonably expected. Although some severe losses have been again exirienced in the flock districts from the eflects of i* epidemic, it afford* tts much pleasure in being I enabled to intimate that ita virulence haa considerably abated. With reapect to tbe different medicinal preparation)* for arresting ita progress, it appears to us that nature herself lias done more towards it than the moat skilful practitioner. There ie one matter connected with the disease which leqtnrea the particular attention of our readers.? We have observed that the disease haa apparently originated, and been more destructive, amanget those beasts and sheep grazing on low damp meadows where conch aud other rank herbage has been plentiful. We do not contend that exceptions have not been noticed to this circumstance ; still, it must be evident to all connected with grazing, that the more free from such pasturage, the less likelv is the general lieulth of the stock to be affected, and to received injury from an epidemic. In the present and the approaching season, therefore, let every attention be paid to the stock in this particular: let the land he divested of noxious weeds, and we feel tolerably certain that good results will follow. The progress which has now been made throughout England, in thrashing our last year's crops of wheat, has been, it cannot be denied, to that extent from which the growers are able to form an accurate judgement of the productive qualities of that description of grain. Of course, in the statistical data respecting a matter of such moment to the community at large, it would be impossible for us to state what the actual deficiency is; still we have the authority of the most extensive and bestinforined agriculturists for stating that a decided deficiency is found to exist. This deficiency, however, arising from the abundant supplies which, from obvious reasons, have been on ofler in the London as well as the leading provincial markets ?has, as yet, been without any material influence upon price. True it is, that consumptions has, from the principal i?ortion of the operatives finding good employment, been increasing; but the foreign wiicm prcsaiug lurvvaru lino iniuru iu |'icvrm uic quotations rising to that point which can be considered remunerative. Until, therefore, a large portion of the latter shall have been cleared off, it is evident, though the quantity free of duty does not exceed qrs., thut prices cannot rise much ubove their present level; yet from the comparatively small supplies now in the hands of the home-growers, we are quite of opinion that the rates have seen their lowest. The demand for wheat, particulary for the finest parcels, has somewhat improved in the course of the month, and that improvement has resulted in a slight advance in price. In its early part a good business was doing in barley at advanced rates; but the supplies towards the latter end of the period proving considerably more than equal to meet the wants of the dealers, the demand fell off, and currencies suffered a downward tendency. Malt iias come forward somewhat freely, hut not much progress lias been made in effecting sales, and prices have ruledwithout material alteration. The supplies of outs have been about adequate to the demand, and the prices of that grain, as we|l as of beans, pease, anil Hour, have been about stationary.?Farmer's Mug. Importation or American Oysters.?We understand that a pretty extensive traflic in oysters is now curried on between this country and America. Strange though it may appear, still it is nevertheless true, that oysters are now regularly imported into Liverpool by the New York line of packets.? The oysters are put in tanks, and fed on the passage, and sells for part of the ballast of the vessels. The American shell-fish 'alluded to are far larger than the far-famed Carlmgford oysters, which have to he quartered ere fliey can he eaten. They are selling at present in the Liverpool market at 4s. per hundred.?Leeds Intelligencer. We fear our contemporary is wrong in this report. We do not find that the'Amerieans have yet sent any of their gigantic oysters hither, though we do not see why tne hint should not be taken.

Ai.ivk.?The account copied by German journals from the Journal des Debats respecting the alleged death of the celebrated Angelica Catalani, at her villa near Sinigaglia, proves to be quite erroneous. It appears that, on the contrary, she is at present in her beautiful villa in the neighborhood of Florence, and is in the best state of health that could be expected with reference to her advanced nge. As a proof of this, it would be sufficient for us to state that on last New Year's day the celebrated songstress had a circle of friends around her at dinner. On this occasion the account of her death was read from the French newspapers in the midst of lively exultation, and the clang of "champaign glasses."? The report that her husband, M. de Valabreque, died in 1827, is equally untrue. He is still alive, and likewise resides here. Madame Catalani, or de Valabreque, possesses no villa at Sinigaglia, and in the opinion of well informed persons, the estimate which was given of her fortune, in the account referred to, is far too high.?Allgrmcine Zcitung. Miss Helen Faucit has been tempted to renew all her Scottish engagements. At Glasgow they were obliged to turn the orchestra into stalls to accommodate the people. The houses have been overflowing. The return of Mr. and Mrs. Wood to the metro polita.ii stage has caused considerable sensation in the theatrical world. Their re-ap, earance took place at the Princess's Theatre on the 18th ultimo. Mrs. Wood was received with the most enthusiastic ap iluuse, which lasted several minutes ; and her husband was also warmly greeted by a densely crowded audience. Mr. II. Phillips and Mr. Louis Leo have brought forward a new entertainment, consisting of Hebrew Melodies, in fwo parts; the first connected with the feast of the passover and the other with the social music of the Jews. A double interest is attached to this performance, which involves the question of antiquity more than it does the science of sweet sounds, Mr. Leo, who we believe is a Rabbi, has arranged all the music. At Oovent Garden Theatre M.

The effect of this piece is exceedingly pleasing ; and the finale, with its numerous cornopeans, really effective. The orima donna, Henrietta Carl, has been invited by Rifaat Pasha to a soiree given in his harem at Constantinople.

After coffee, the singing commenced, and tinpiece which the lady executed was so successful that an encore was demanded. Drury lane has once more become the temple of the "legitimate drama"?once more the shrine of Shakspeare. On Monday, the 21st tilt., after a long absence, Mr. Charles Kean re-appeared in Richard the 'third. The theatre was literally crowded to suffocation?from the pit to the ceiling ?from the orchestra to the extreme back of the gallery?not an inch of vacant space was to be Inund. The audience sutlered from In-at and prefigure, and want of air; but nothing "repressed their noble rage," or lessened the ardor of their enthusiasm. And yet there was nothing to gratify the appetite lor novelty which now-a-days is said to he bo insatiable. A tragedy of 8hukspeare, and the "old familiar faces" of actors known to us lor yearn, were the attraction which filled the house to overflowing. Can any one, after this, libel the English public so grossly as to say that the love of the drama in its noblest form, is either extinguished or decayed 1 We do not regard Mr. Charles Kean a? a firstrate tragedian. He is " no more like Mi father Than I to Hercules." Mr. Braham's concert last night,in the St. James's Theatre,was attended by a numerous audience,and there were many fashionable parties in the boxes. The performances of Mr. Braham and his two sons have been so frequently noticed that they afford little room for remark. Braham's famous martial song, "The Austrian Trumpet," was given with the voice and energy of former days. He sang, for the first time, a German balled, called, "The 'I hree J Students," a remarkable combination of wildness md pathoa, which made a great impression on the to tudience. Another piece, also produced tor the first ? ime, was at very tnfertor merit. It was a duet oal- ? ed "The Brothers," composed by Mr. Knight, and rang by the two younger Messrs. Brahara. It was ? ong, monotonous, ana dreary. The applause was w jy no means general, but two or three voices roar- h ?d out encore, and the lingers, nothing loth,obeyed si he call, against the evident sense of the audience, m Indeed it was plain that the encore was a "foregone nt :onclusion."

The preli- tl 1111 nary steps have been marked by all the excite- * ment and had feeling between the opposing parties, J' for which unhappy Ireland is distinguished. The ^ striking of the special jury which is to try the issue, t| has ranged ugainst the Government all the Roman *, Catholic party who were not previously Repealers, b r roin borne nunureas oi ryimes on tne panel, ioriyeight were drawn by ballot,the traversers possessing v the same right as the Crown of peremptorily chal- a lenging twelve?twelve on each side. 1 It happened that oat of the forty-eight drawn, eleven were If onian Catholics; these the Govern- ? ntent challenged, and the whole were struck off, p the representative of the traversers during this pro- 0 cess, ''there goes a Catholic! another l'apist struck o off!"i.\cc. This affair hasset the country in a blaze, t so to speak, and unpopular as were the proceedings * before, it has made tnem worse. That proceeding, ' as may be imagined, gave great umbrage to the J Repeal party, and the Government has been at- t tacked with great bitterness for adopting a line of n conduct which looks very like a foregone conclu- a sion to pack a jury to ensure a conviction. Wo i great was the indignation experienced in Ireland at A the striking off all the Roman Catholics from the to jury list, .that a requisition for calling an aggregate 8 meeting of the Catholics of Ireland was signed in J three hours by sixty-five barristers, only three of ? whom are Repealers. The three first names ap- 3 pended to the requisition were Richurd Lalor e Whiel, M.P.; Thos. Wyse, M.P.: and N. Hall, son v of the Right Hon. Judge Hall. The briefs for the c Crown Counsel (13 in number) are printed and c partly lithographed, and each contains between 340 a and 350 pages. The letter-press printing alone in 8 each brief occupies 170 pages. All persons con- J cerned were called upon by the Crown to be pre- h sent in Dublin by Sunday, the 14th, at the latest; j, and on Monday the battle of the lawyers began in r good earnest. ti Monday, the first day of the trials, wa9 marked d by more than usual excitement in Dublin. The 4 Lord Mayor's state carriage bore Mr. O'Connell to J1 the Court, and was accompanied by a procession j which formed at the learned gentleman's house, t in Merion square. Arrived at the Court, the doors of which were besieged from an early hour, they 0 were taken leave of by their admirers with hearty * plaudits. t Trial ok Mr. O'Conxell axd Others.?The trial of ' O'Conuell and the o:her traversers commenced on Monday J the 15th ult., when James Hamilton, of Ormoud Ruay,was 1 about to be sworn as the foreman of the jury, Sir Coleman O'Laughlen handed in a challenge to the array on the (.art of the defendants. This gave rise to a lengthened argu* . ment, at the close of which the chief justice said the ma- 1 jority of the court were of opinion that the demurrer \ shouid be allowed, and consequently that the challenge to ^ the array could not be sustained. On Tuesday morning e the jury was sworn ; and the Attorney Oeneral proceeded with his opening speech. He continued his statement up " to 5 o'clock, at which hour bo said he would not proceed further, as it was impossible he could finish that day. 0 Alter a short conversation between the counsel for the I crown, the court and the traversers' counsel, it was * agreed to allow the jury to go to their own homes, at the e same time giving them strict injunctions not to hold corn- J munication with any person ou the subject. The court 1 adjourned to ten o'clock the following morning, when the 11 Attorney-! huicral resumed his address to the jury, and 1 spoke during the whole period of the sitting of the court. 1 He dwelt principally upon the evident uttempts of the traversers and their instruments to undermine the fidelity * of the army, and alter referring at some length to the * Miillaghroast and other "monster meetings," concluded 1 by impeaching the resolutions which it had been intended 1 to submit to the prohibited meeting at Clontarf. The lion. * and learned gentleman exhorted the jury to discharge P their onerous duties firmly but moderately?with caution, jj but without fear. On Thursday the Lord Chief Justice * and his learned brethren took their seats on the bench at 10 J o'clock. The first witness exumined was F. B. Hughes, 1 the government reporter, who stated that he had been a 11 reporter for 17 years, and came to Ireland for the ^ first timi* on tin* liOtli of Ketiti?niher lust. thu 11 meeting at Mullaglimast, on the 1st of October. Ileile- 9 scribed the proceedings at that place, and read from his 1 notes, a description of the banners, fancy dresses, and cos- " tume of " O'Connell's police;" also the dress of scarlet vcl c vet worn by Mr. O'Coniiell, &c. Sec , us well as the national 8 cap adopted on the occasion. The witness went on to read several passages from his notes, at great length at the desire of the Court. He further described being present at other meetings, and identified the various traversers who were present on those occasions. Mr. Hughes was cross-examined on the part of the defendants, but little of moment elicited. Henry M. Latham was next called:? He came to Ireland as Mr. Hughes's assistant. The examination of this witness seemed to afford much amutomcat; but little beyond a corroboration of the previous testimony was obtained Charles Ross, also a government rejiorter, was then called; but after a few preliminary questions, as to being present at the meeting of Donny brook in June last, the Judge said, as the witness was entering into new matter, and as it was already half-past Ave, he would adjourn the Court until the next morning (Friday) to meet at ten o'clock precisely. On Friday morning, O'Counell, attired in the bar costume of the Queen's Counsel, entered Court shortly before ten, and took his seat In the inner bar. The other traversers were also punctual in attendance. The whole of the day was occupied by the examination of Mr. Ross. Mr. Ross gave evidence of the proceedings at a meeting of the Repeal Association, on the 2Hlli of August, at which Mr. O'Connell, Mr. John O'Conuell, and Mr. Ray were present. After reading. various portions oi u ? onnen s speecn,in reierence 10 a pian, wiucn ne had introduced at a previous meeting, tor remodelling the Irish Parliament, he was asked by Mr. llonn if he had ta- " ken full notes of what had ocuurred I Ho replied that he v had not a full note of all that occurred. A cross-exami- ? nation here ensued, and it was at length stated by the witness, that he took full notes of all that he thought mate- c rial, omitting what was in his estimation unimportant.? The objection was overruled, and the examination pro- " ceeded. The witness read such passages as he ha/1 talien c down of O't'onnell's speeches at the several meetings of * the Repeal Association, at the Houghree, Clifton, and 8 other meetings and dinners. He was then cross examined at great length by Mr. Ilerin. He stated that he came to 8 Ireland In July, 1813 ; that he was a little frightened at v first, but his apprehensions soon subsided ; that he came . as reporter for the Standard, and was nlso employed by 1 the government, and that he had received X4D0 for his ser- * vices up to the next session of Parliament. On Saturday, the first witness called was John Jackson, who stated that he was the Irish corres|K>ndent of the Morning Herald dn- 8 ring the last summer and autumn j hail attended ihe MM* sociation meetings, and transmitted to London his reports. r Several note hooks were successively handad to the wit- ' ne?s, who said that the |were the original accounts,which ? he had transmitted to tho Morning Herald, and which had been sent back to Dublin for use on thoso trials. He P had, since they arrived in Dublin, had them from Mr. v Kemmis to put his initials to them. The witness proceed. 8 od to read from these notebooks extracts from the speech- ? es of O'Connell, delivered at various meetings, ana he u stated which of the traversers attended, The witness * went through his reports of all the meetings to the 4th of ...kirk 1... I... ...... Ik.. II.,.. Mr Tl.r.... S with O'Connell, John O'Connell, and the other traverser#. lie continued to say, in reply to Mr. Brewster, that the a meetings were generally well attended, sometimes more and sometimes less. The cross-examination was then " commenced by Mr. Kit/.gibbon, who seemed determined J' to interrogate the witness harshly. The witness said he * was an Irishman, and, though a correspondent, to which term the Counsel would not let him confine himself, " when he said, though a reporter of public proceed- ? ings, he was not a stenographer. He had been in H the habit of reporting petty sessions proceedings for ' several papers, transmitting them from his native " town Kilriish. John Brown, a printer, proved that * Mr. Hay was secretary of the Association, that he had *' printed " Reports" of the Association, Instructions lor the Repeal Wardens, Rules for the Arbitrators, placards, 8tc. J' which he had been ordered to execute, sometimes by let- ' ter, sometimes verbally. Some o( the documents which he produced were signed Daniel O'Connell. Mr. White- " side submitted to the court that the documents proved liy jJ the last witness should not he received as evidence " against the traversers in the present case. Mr. Justice " Perrin called the attention of the counsel to the charge in " the indictment, that of conspiracy, whfch was to be sus- " tained by certain documents prepared and printed hy some or one ol the traversers. If proved to he printed hy ' one of the parties, surely it should be received in evidence against that one After a discussion of an hour ' and a half, the Court decided unanimously on admitting the document " Instructions to Repeal Wardens," signed P by O'Connell Mr. M'Donotigh intimated his intention to take a bill of exceptions against this decision. On Monday, three of the Judges only were in attendance. Wo " regret to state that Judge Burton's absence was owing to " indisposition. \n attempt was made onjjthe part of the 11 traversers to suspend the investigation pending ihc illness of Judge Burton, hut the objection was overruled. The j< first witnesses examined were Thomas Packer, John and ' Joseph Annesley, all persons in the employ of Mr. Hoi- J hrooke, Crow street, who were questioned In reference to ts the engraving an<l printing of the different cards used hy the Repeal Association, and the source from which Mr. Holbrooke had received the order.

There were several bands ef usic there, dressed in military caps. lie calculated the amber of persons present to be about 40,000. Some of tern came into the town iu military array, led by a per>n he believed to be a Roman Catholic Priest. Bishop iegins was in the same carriage with O'ConnelL Ol'enL'll and Steele were the only traversers the witness coald entity who attended the meeting. The last sentrnoe ; O'Connell's speech on that occasion was, " Go home lietly, and tell your friends what was said, and when we ant them here again, to be ready.'' John Jolly, a headinstable of police, said he attended at the Malton meetig, in June last There was a large procession, about x deep, headed by persons who seemed to command, irrying wands with ribbons attached, in their hands. I'Connell and Mr. Steele were in the procession. O'Conell in addressing the meeting said they should have the nion repealed That they should have Ireland for the rish, anu he delied the English to withhold it, for the risli were too strong, too virtuous, and too temperate to e kept in slavery.?Henry (Sodfrey, a policeman, was le next witness. He was examined by Mr. Freeman, in aferenceto the Baltingglasi meetings in August last, and eposed, that O'ConneTl and Mr. Steele were present, and nit some violent language was used. An interruption n the part ot Mr. CantweB, during the examination in reirence to u leading question, led to an altercation heiveen the Counsel on both sides, which terminated by a ireat, on the part of the Chief Justice, to have Mr. Cant 'ell removed on a repetition of such conduct. Nothing ? iteresting was elicited by the cross examination. Parick Lentinghan and Manders Hughes, constables, coneorated the testimony of the previous witness, and added nut pievious to the meeting they had heard several perans declare "that Mr. Saunder's house should be attacked ecautc it was once the scene of blood."

The langungi was ometime* very touching, but he did not attempt to grapde with the law so lucidly and calmly laid down in the peiiing address of the Attorney-General. At the opening f the "court on Monday, John O'Connell, one of the raversers, rose and said that something had dropped from dr. Sheil in his speech on Saturday, which might convey he impression that he waa disposed to accept an oecaional or an annual visit of the Imperial parliament te tublin, as a satisfactory concussion to the present agitaion for repeal. He was notof sucli opinion.

Hatchell then rose and said, that he appeared as councilor Mr. Kay. He admitted that Mr. hay was a repealir, and the paid secretary of the association, but the jury vere not to try him as such, but whether or not he had in oqjunction with the other traversers entered into a preonceitcd plot to excite discontent against the government nd constitution. The learned counsel proceeded to ar;ue at some length against this allegation, and closed his ddress at two o'clock,when O'Connell,who had been preent in the course of the morning at the Conciliation Hall ad the court adjourned kuntil Tuesday morning, assign- * ng as a reason the illness of Mr. Kitzgibbon, counsel Tor )r.
