We have inerted in our first page, the speech of Sir
George Murray on his being returned for Pernhhire, and
as ti gendema was de late Secretary for the Colonies,
we think t will he read with intent by those of our sub-
rrers who have not had an opportunity of perusing k
elsehere.-It is an independet ad unsophisticated pro-
dtiena, and reecu gnat redtk upo the ead, well as

when we a toM of a p onm, or a body peat per-
ling in doing any partular act, t is natural to suppose,
that -mm I ctual o ert have bee made, to induce a
diurea line of conduct; and reason ing i hi way, the
r oad f the Royal Oamea, for wham iferadioa the
paragraph alluded to was eprly written, may be ld to
believe, dat am ech st mpts were made at the time
that the Bahama Legqlatae pad the Act in question,
to induce d ht bod to remove the objectionable dause
which ave ice cu ditdillowance. Such, however,
is certaily not the a, awd for te information of alln,
wether far or near, we shl e savour to explain the
faces, as they really are:-In 180, an Act of Aembly
was pamed, for the regulation of Jurie-at that period,

tretmi which form the baus of it. This communication,
received by the Plnipouintiaries of the four Courts with
umnimous iand sincere sastiseion, gave hdem occuion on
their prt to declare, da they knew how to appreciate
duly the spirit and aim of the same. They consider it as
.3 happy result of the principal laid down in the Protocol
of March 17, in comseqeo of the t obhervaion, to
hkbi the Protocol of February, had given rie on he pen
of France. OGmly as they renitted even a momentary
diferece of opinie betweon.them and thd Feah govern-

France, by the declaration of her Ambassador, cooumin

u iou of the Great Power, which unioe pren the best
uant of a geral peae. With regard to the further
obervuio with whch th French Plenipotentiary accom
panied the awer declaration, the conference, after coa-
sidertlon, have unanimously agreed, as. That the di-
u sion n the exchange of territory which might take
place between Holla and Belgiumwas only to be asumed
now as a project, but that it can only be opened with
advantage when the parties immediately interested
therio shell have acceded to the arrangeeats whichmu
ullow the separation of miu from Holand, and when
* the laboun of the Commission for the demarcation shall
have completely cleared up the question relative to the
exchange of territory, and ntly, have faciliuaed
the so!ution of it to the ive Powers. 241y, That, as the
main principle of the five Powers is to respect treaties, it
is evident that the stipulations of the treaties relative to the
Omrai Duchy of Luxembourg must be executed. dlly,
That in consequence of the same principle, the Plenipo-
antiarlen of de five Coets at the London Conference
shall proceed to the examination of dh treatesiin existence
relative to the Duchy of Boullion, in order to state upon the
observations made by the Plenipotentiary of France, what

due regard for this situation may be observed in the mea-

a 1y7, baof all, the malte -Ailla b i in h
ever districts, which operated as a ecldion of co-
loued pero.-The Bahama Lads are generally paed
for a trm of yea, and it hs een custoeary,.jud pm-
vi;os to he epiation of a Law, inswra of r-enacting it
at length, to pas a short Act, continuing the original fora
further period; in this manner, the Act, in qutioa was
continued (met reisad) in 1816, and s again in 1827.-
At neither of thee periods, was any attempt made to alter
the original Law, out the continuing Act passed as a mat-
tr of course, and never was viewed as at all connected
with the extesion of privileges to the free coloured cldu.
The Act which has been disallowed by his Majesty's Go-
vernment, was passed (not a Sea ios or two ago, as stated
in the Royal Gasette), but on the 22d of December, 1827,
and it inot, perhlu, one of the astextraordinary features
in this business, that notice of the disallowance of another
Act, paed on the very same day, wa communicated to
the Commander-in-Chbf la, by letter from the Secre-
tary of State for the Colonies, dated the 2d ofJuly, 1829,
while the disllowence of the Jury Act, did net ake place
until the 2Jd of November, 1880, and was only made
know here about the 12th Of March last. The lape of
time that intervened between the diallowance of two Acta
which must have been under consideration at the same
period, affords fair reason for opposing, that the Lords
of the Committee of Council for Trade, &c. must have
had theirenergies roused, with respect to the Jury Act, by
communications of a later date than 1829; but leaving that
point for future consideistion, we will now ask, whether
the late House of Assembly evinced any thing like a hos-
tile dispoition towards the free people of colour, during
the last Sesiojt Eery unprejudiced, every candid man,
must, we thiki, answer in the negative. The resolution,
fiingthe qualification of Juros, without respect to colour,
as recommended, bya Committee of the whole Home, was
adopted by the House, without a disseuting voice. The
Bill founded on that resolution was read twice, without
a diussening voice, and most probably would la e been
carried through its ubleqauunt stges, with the sene una-
nimity that marked its prore ss p to that period, hadl
not tie Governor sent his exroirdinan'y meaages of the
10.h and Ilth of Jue.- 46O I conduct of the House,
with regard to those mesaes, we have alrestly expressed
our untloalified approb tiun, and in opposition to all that
may be said, by the supporters of the Governor, we ever
shall hokl, that the Members best ronstlted ile interests
of the Colony, by resolving, to do no furller business,
wlile the reins of Government rema;ued in the hands of
Sir James Carmichael Smyth.-Trie it is, that that meo-
lotion lost the Jury Bill, but important as that measure
doubtless was, yet was it not of infinitely greater impor-
tance to the inte.e s of all classes in the Colony (whether
white or colured), that the inilependence of the Repre-
sentative Body should be preervced inviolate.
The foregoing remarks are founded on facts which are
in print: and with which any stranger may make himself
acquainted in a very short period. They in truth form
part of the history of the Colony, and as such have been
peculiarly interesting to us. We trust our readers will
excuse the space we have devoted to this subject, but con-
ceiving the paragraph in the Royal Gaette, might lead to
misconception, we wre anxious to show things in their
true light abroad.

We have reasons for suppoing, that a idea preails,
that the amo'rnt of qualification, as laid down in the Jury
Act, framed by the late Houe of Assembly, wa 500
real estate for a Petit Jurer.-We deem it, their fore, our
duty, to undeceive dthse who may be either under thede-
lusion of mistake or imposure.-The qualification, was
laid, as vested i those who paid a land tax often hillins
currency, or what at four billings, for every hundred
poumas value, would be 50 currency. Our information
relative to e being believed to be the first named msu, i

The letter received by this mvl, as wellU a the received be
the schr. Comits, seem to agree in saying that in all the staes,
with the exception of Yacata, which the Meniem hope will
return from its enor and vjry loon re-incorpoate itself with
the federation, there rigs the greatest tranquility.
One of the letter which we have before us, wrten by a very
respectable person of the city of Mexico, says mong other
things : "domestic peace is cementing on a durable bsis, pro..
penty and credit are progressing., d it is aumred with a apidity
incredible to any one who i not acquainted with Ite good sens
of the Mexicans. und the element of *aalthand plenty hch

LoDnoN, May 23.-There i no longer any doubt of
dte Relormi Bill Ibing carried to its full extent in the
House of Comnons, and that the House of Ljrds will pass
it entire is almost as certain. Indeed we understand that
tli great borough-monger have given up all idea ofoppo-
ition as perfectly useless, and even the Dukeei NRewa
has expressd himself to this effect. Itis alo clear that
the Bill will be bro't before Parliament as son after its
assembling as possible; and that the probabi!iy is that it
will heconmr part and parcel of the law of the land in the
course of a few weeks. Such being dUe cae, the question
naturally suggests itself-Will the Parliament be dissolved
immediately after the passing of the Bill, or will his Majes-
ty's Ministers dispose of any of the important business
which now presses for consideration with a House of Com-
mons a at present constituted It is truly observed by
a Sunday Paper, that the ate ofrlland, of England,
and ofthe Colonies, demands the senrmu attention of the
Legislitur, ; and, if we are not much mistaken, it will be
necetrary tiha the Parliament of thi country should exprrv
a decided opinion with respect to the affair of some pur-
tion of the Continent.
A great failure has occurred to-day in the Stock Ex-
change. It is raid tlat the insolvent has speculated for
a flil to the amount of nearly one million ofConsole, be-
k.iIs considerable uales ol Rusi n and other foreign
Stock. It is believed that the difrrrenes will amount to
between 50,000 and 60,000, to meet which he has be-
lances in hand to the amount of six shillings and eight-
pence in the pound. The defaulter, it seue was the
older of the Bear, alias the bruuamongerlng party,
who, like Sir Robert Peel, flatesd lenuselves that the
reform question would destroy public credit, and render
the Funds almost valueless. Tha individual incacitaeid
from meeting hi enearements is Mr. George Battye
(lately ofthe fim of Trower and Battyo) whose credit,
from the respectability ofhi connections at the Wr of the town, was, for the mot part, unbounded. He was
