Therefore it waa that the nubl e were aeked to support the preaent movement. (Cheera.) Mr 8.

If the nobW lord, who had ailed *9 many capacities aa well as that of their pro'esaed repre^ rentative, had been there he would have ween enough to convince him that that asaetnblege would reault in something mc re than a llaah in the pan.

La?t night but a am ill number, probably, ol tho House of Commons would bi?e supported their but by MoadAy ha btlieved that number would have in?e**ed ao much that no government could ex:at which declined to listen to them. He denied the truth of Lord ''almerstou's a* -ter tian, that the statements made hy Mr. Layard tho other night were calumnious and unfounded. (Cheers.) Mr. Layard had no wiah to destroy the character of wrJ Hardinge? he bad attacked not individuals, but the ystsm by wbich power waa placed in the bands of laca j able men. 'lhe lliuatratlcn of Mr. Layard was uafor mnate. but his principle waa light; the great tlarar.iui act remained? that public affairs were mlfctnaaage-l, tnd favor, not merit, waa the rule of promotion (Cheers ) Mr Lajrarrt had spoken with the voice of tlio ountry, and the cheer* of 1lie meeting convince! him bat in their opinion thnt honorable gentleman was one ? f the men fitted for the present emergency. (C.ieers.) here wore mans other n an in Jtngland who had Uith-r to r* fused to ait in the House of Commons, but who wenid row go with pleasure to ?td by their votes and voices those members already th*re who were deter mined to do their duty. (Cheers.) Mr Jciif,STONK Nkalb supported the resolution, but Ibciigbt that they ought to give fair play to those they were about to condemn, and that both aidea of the uuesticn ought to oe placed before the public (Cheers.) He would theiefore state what ho knew to bo Lord Pa'. merston'a anawer to many of the chargea brought againatHm. He bad it from the lips of a noble p ir whom tbey all respected ? (cries of " Name!")? thut Lord I aim* rf. ton had said, in answer to those accusa tions, that be o tiered office, while he wan forming the present gcvernmeut, to merchants of the city of Lon don; bnt these mt tenants told him it would be impossi ble tor tlitm to leave their business, and give up emilu menta of ?5,000 or ?",OCO a ye.vr, to jo>n a government for a short time, at the risk of losing hoth business anl appointment. Thia stater nt ought to go forth with teat of Mr. Linfsay, which showed how incorreetly the noble lord must bave been Informed, if he waa un< r the impression that the practical gentlemen to whom he had applied had refuted office from mere p?cuniary motivee. Lord Palmeraton'a difficulty lay in tte formation of the House of Commons. (Hear.) Tbey bad already been told the dumber of members connected wltn tbe peerage now in the Houae of Commons, and he would add the information which be obtained from Dod, that there were twenty-three places which returned members under the influence of freatfam'liei. They were Chester, Chlchester.Cireneestsr, liuci.-y, OungarvaE, Lnnlsk'Jlen, Helstooe, Liunceston, Malmesburj, Melton, Marlborough, Peterborough, Rei aate Bicbmond, Kipon Bye, Shaftesbury, Sandwich, Ta vistock, Tbetford, Warwick, Wilton, and Youghal. There were three or four other placea undtr almilar in fluence. He tound also that tbe House of Common* contained 4 rcarquites, 8 earla, 17 viscounts, 31 lords, 50 lotorables, and 30 baronets. (Hear, bear ) He asked Mr. Lindsay whether if he were made Prime Minister to moirow, he could do otherwise than listen to the de mands of men hy whose votes alone he woald be able to ntain office ? (Hear, hear ) This waa tbe whole ques tion and iimuat now be made pi tin to tbe aristocracy that the pre tent system had gone to it* fullest extent and must be altered. They must do thia for the benefit of the aaistoeracy. (A laugh.) They loved the aristoc racy, (laughter,) but they must not give them every tl>iog that tbey demanded. Mr. Layard had been at tacked the other night because it was the interest of all the coEiexiore of the aristocracy in the House that he should be bilenced. (Three cheers were here given for Mr. Lajard ) He was Bure that this movement would succeed. and that it wonld not Infringe upon tho prero gative of the Crown or the privileges of the peer*, but wonld uphold the rights of the people. (Cheers.) Tbe resolution was carried unanimously. Mr. W.
