Sitting in London, and supported by the purses of cre-

libel Mr. sad Mrs. Wood when in Antigua, or any other
I nnocen individual in our colonies, iu security and at plea-
S tro. He knows they live at such a distance that they
cannot immediately come in contact with him-he knows
that to come to thh country and to produce evidence to
subms in a court of law such infamous falsehoods as he ad-
vances, would, while all his expones are defrayed out of
the pockets of blockhead, cost the injured parties an e-
pense tbh would ruin the most independent families ;
hence his impunity in the work of slander and mischief,
and hence this country is inundated with, and disgraced
by, the circulation over it of the basest libels and thie bit-
terest falsehoods against truth and justice that were ever
concoce d, penned, and published. Mr. Wood owes it in
c. jlice to hinelf, however, to seek at the hands of the
S -we of hi country redress for the cruel injuries which
hiiublf and his family have sustained. A jury of inde-
pendent Englishomn, notwithstanding all the prejudices
which have boon artfuHy raised against the colonies, would
inv dnamaes against his libeller; but with regard to tile
dastardly attack on the character of the wife of his bosom,
tlure is but one way to seek compensation for this, and
that is, to come and take Pringle by ilse neck, and with a
good rattan or Mauritius oz whip, lash him through Lon-

fctiho with whila b Ihes awsely allied himself.
Thi state of ha been produced by the following
event:--Parua L after th Eustersaee, on Mon-
day. On that a* e I Lords were to go into coam-
mittetonoAt ri ef= "BI11 but it was apprehended, that
resistance to each a caus would be made by the Marquis
of Salisbury, who had an instruction to the committee.
To the surprise of every one not in the secret, no oppo.
sition was made, and the Peers went into committee.
Earl Grey moved the postponement of the preamble ;
this, too, was ecs d to: but, when be desired, in defrr-
ence to the feellnof some Noble Lord, to pas schedule
A without specifying the number of places to be diefran-
chised, Lord Lyodhoar ros, and, as an amendment,
proposed, that schedules A and B be postponed until afler
the consideration of those sclwdules which enumerated
the towns to be enfranchsed. Ilis argument was, that,
before disfranchising any place, they should see what
number of members would be required lor places to be
enfranchised; but. throughout the whole of his speech,
he did not conceal his utter dislike of thu bill. The bait
rook. The waverer," by consent, as is suspected,
supported the amendment, some of them affecting to con-
sider with great difference whether schedule A or D was
first entered upon, while others aere horror struck at the
idea of the disfranchising being allowed to take prece-
dence of the enfranchising clauses. The enemies of all
reform and the would-be advocates or partial reform coal-
esced : Earl Grey saw his danger, and firruly resisted a
well-concerted schume to strangle the bill or eject Minis-
ters. The division was fatal to the cabinet. A majority
of thirty-five was against them ; but it was thought, that
the immediate consequence would be an instant creation
of Peers. This was the general impression.
On Tuesday a Cabinet Council was held : all the Mi-
nisters were present, and they remained in deliberalion
fromeleven to four o'clock. On breaking up, Earl Grey
and Lord Brougham repaired to Ilis Majesy, ati Windsor.
What passed there is no longer a secret: they endured,
as tlie advice of his constitutional advisers, a creation of
peers to an extent adequate to tie carrying of tie bill
whole and entire ; and they udded, that ii Ilis Mldjrsty
declined to adopt tlha cuunsul, he would be graciously
pleased to recccpt their remignation. They uleurned to
town, and Ilis M.ijesty took time to deliberate. Thl e re-
sull was a inessage nest morning, courtly, but astoundingly,
stating that he was graciously pleased" to accept tliir
resignation. Ilis Majesty, then it is said, sein for Earl
liurrowby ; but Iis lordship, either recollecting his solrmnn
declaration on the secuad reading, pledging hlinlslf nut to
accept olfice, or fearful of challenging public opinion on
equivocal conduct, declined the honour intended him, and
the King was obliged to appeal next to one who lhas long
heen emancipated from uny foolish qualmiu of conscience.
The result of Lord Lyndhurst's interview wua an cxperi-
nment at tile formation of a tory Ministry.
On the evening of Wmdnesday, the resignation of Mi-
nisters was formally communicated to both Huuses of
Parliament; in the Lords by Earl Grey, ane. in the Com-
mons by Lord Allhorp. The Premier proposed the post-
ponement of all atTairs that could produce in the legisla-
ture a conflictof opinion. But Lord Carnarvon, foremost
in evety thing like bullying, contended, that the reform bill
should be proceeded with on Monday. Earl Grey's reply
to the noble Lord's untimely attack was dignified and be-
coming. In the Commons, Lord Althorp'scommunication
was followed by a notice of a motion, on the prt of Lord
Ebrington, for the following evening. On Thursday, ac-
cordingly, the house was called over, and the motion was
carried by a majority of 80 in a Iouse of 498 members.
Its purport was an address to the King, epreusive of hoe
opinion of the Commons. That opinion was tantamount
to a declaration, that they would not tolerate any Ministry
who would refine to carry the reform bill in all it integrity.
This mode of proceeding is the most solemn known to the
constitution; it is seldom resorted to, and since the days
of Charles I. the crown has never refused to attend to ad.
vice thus conveyed. Will William IV., the once popular
and patriotic King, reject the models aforded by the
House of Hanover, and adopt that of Charls I., whose
obstinacy brought him to the block I
The anocano ment of Earl Grey's resignation filed the
country' with high revolves and eacmable indignation.
The moderate became determined, and the timid became
firm. Those who had hitherto avoided politics at one
enraoed themselves a. reformers, and, as if by general a-
set, the smoe resolmtins were adopted in London, Bir-
migha, Manchester, nd Liverool. From every plnae
he H e of Commons was caed opn to withhold the
supplies, and there was at the sme time a kind of tacit
agreement to refuse the payment of taxes. In London
the Common Council met, and a common hall was called.
Vestmiaster assembled, and all the onIons resolved and
=fiioned. At two hours' notice omly. 130,000 met at
Biingham; and ery where the people have eis
met. or are about to meet. There is but one feeling, one

Colrt Anecdote.-We have heard the following anc-
dote related on good authority. It has been usual, at the
commenrement of a new reign, to vote tie Quee the
sum of 50,000, as an outfit. IHer Majesty, though at
the time in want of money, affected not to wish to brdea
the nation by asking for the usual outfit. Earl Gray,
whom she expected to press the money upon her, Int
whose motto was economy, took her Majesty at her ordl,
and, in the settlement of the civil list, the otfit-maonC
was not voted. It is said, that the Queen was dipleil
at the conduct of the Minister, and that she ever str
longed for the return of the stories to power.

the bsin ws opeod by the Rev. L L$a low
propriate ad impressive speech. The am of hW
stit iii w then advocated by the society' deputy, tl
Rev. W. Evauso, who stated uthatiebslajet
bllsh Is reland a system of education hm Sa t
Scripturea, naincumbered by the notes and of
fathers and cofessors, which served rather i u than
to instruct ; on that entire and unadulte a of
Iloly Writ which one ot His Majnsty's had
declared to be obnoxious to the interest dt l Romish
Clhrch. The Rev. gent. stated that in. ontry of
Europe did thbe exist two such op ae u in
Ireland : the estrese of misery and matlth temporal
and apirtual, and o the other hand the ell o desir of
supplying that want by every pomible r He descri-
bed, in a lively and aaimeatd. mre the deplorable
wretchedness of that fee couasiy, condiion, he
staIed, could never be eflfctually ll oraetd, while the
darkess of ignorance and auNl 4J, and that mental
thtaldom that seemed to form thO palladium of papal
tyranny, brooded over that unhappy country, and which
it was the object of this dispel. ie stated
that the Hiberninn and similar macietius had effected a
revolution in the habitsand sontlests of the Irish mind
,inpo.alleled in Europe ; that whqeras in W17 there were
only 60 schools in that country, 1827 there were W000;
an since that time the laeaue had been proportionably
great. The eeid ed by sppealingto the sym-
pathy ofa British public to alviate the destitute condition of
the sister kingdom. As soon as he sat down, the Rev. -
O'Connor, Catheolc cl-man of this place, very ab-
ruptly approached the Lear, and addressed the meeting
by contradictlat g liateument of th Rlov. gent. with
regard to the st lt Ireland, and denying the necessity
of such an adamiln contemplated by the society. The
Ri gent Oroe d to deprecate the object of the insli-
ttition, and aid thathe wished to prevent the abstraction
of money ftom the pockets of the assembly. He was
then called to order by the chairman, who said that he
could nut allow him to proceed in such a disorderly man-
ner, but on appealing to the meeting to bo heard in de-
fence of the Catholic Church, which the Rev. gent. who
preceded him had calumniated, Mr. O'C. was greeted by
hiases from some ladies, which he stated did not at all dis-
concert him, and which he thought came rather ungra-
ciously from the fair sex. The chairman now called on
the meeting to signify their approbation of the resolutions
which had been moved, when they were unanimously
assontedto.-The Rev. Mr. O'C. finding further oppo-
sition useless, left the meeting dedlu ing that he considered
their refusal tohear his defence was a greater it iumph
than if he had been permitted to proceed.-A collection
was then made, and after some remarks from the clhair-
man, the meeting separated.-Falmouth Packet.

Madrau papers state thai a commission, appointed by
the Supreme Goverr.nent. was about to proceedto Seringa-
palam, for the purpose of making arrangements to re-
lieve the Rajah of Mysore from tile cares and fatigues of
government. The Lasiq of the arrangement to be, an
ample provision for the Rajah and his family, and no re-
straint to be imposed upon the Iplace of residence he may
select, or in the manner he may choose to spend his time.
Great expectations appear to he entertained that the re-
ourcr and revenues of the Mysoro country will be greatly
inmprovod under the direct management of the Company.

Calcutta papen to the 23rd of Novemoer have bepen
received. A party of marauders, about six hundred in
number, called Molavees, had collected in the neighbour-
hood of Bangundee, a place not more than thirty-five
miles from Calcutta, and had committed serious excesses,
more particularly in the factoriesof Mr. Smith, at Kish-
nagur. They succeeded, in the first instance, in repel-
ling not only the civic force, but alo a party of militia sent
aminst them. On the arrival, however, of a detachment
of troop front Calcutta, they were subdued after a very
obstinate conflict, in which from eighty to one hundred,
were killed, and two hundred and ffty taken prisoners.
These Molavees, are described as the remnant of a pat ly
of fanatics, subsisting formerly by predatory incursions
into the territory of Runject Sing.-Lord W. Bentinck
wa still in the interer, but was expected shortly to return
to the pImideney.-Ensign Vincent, an officer of the
29h aatve infailrv, was murdered, in his tendon the 2d
of November, at Meerat, by his irdar bearer, who after.
wards destroyed himself.
The Cholera praes the medical faculty ; for, aot.
withstading all their efforts, they re unable to disovm
any efficient remedy, and it is said that no mles tsha -nve
modes of treatment are adopted. The people, in tho
eagernes to know what is the nature of the malady, hav
sometimes raised the covering off the litters.a they wen

featoro of the sick. A foreign doctor, while ca~syil
2 patient to the hospital, was about to be assailed, whi
he got upon a plt, and told them that it was shameful fat
the inhabitants of an enlightened city to act as did thI
boors in Russia ; he dnn showed the unfortunate indivi
dual, covered with large livid spots,and the people shruni
away in terror.
Lord Harry Vane, one of the alttachs to the Britiml
Embassy, wa attacked by the Cholera while on horse

sideruble danger.
