This advanco has not been effected by ittiv intimidation, (which, on the contrary, usually defeats the object sought,) hut was voluntarily made by the manufacturers of that place. Sia Wai.ter Scott.—The latest notice tvhich wc find of Sir Walter’s health is the following, which wc copy from the London Courier of the 29th Juno. 'The answer to inquiries this morning at the Ho. tel in St. Jcrmiit st. was, that ho had passed rather h tranquil night, and remained ill the same state ns yesterday. On the evening of tho 29th. in tho House of Commons, the Chancellor of the Exchequer pro. posed a loan of £1,000,000 to those of tho British West India Islands who have recently suffered from hurricanes and servilo insurrections. Ho stat ed that flic losses sustained in consequence of these calamities were u» follows: Jamaica £838,170; Harbadocs £1,1.>1,000; St. Lucia, £81,000; St Vincent, £220,271. lie proposed to appropriate one half of the loan to Jamaica, and the othor half to the other Islands. Tho appropriation was carried [in committee of the whole.} Dennis Collins, who threw stones at the king, hail his final ex.nination on tho 27th June, after which ho was committed for trial on a charge of high treason. When asked, at the close of tho ex amination, what he had to say in his defence, ho expressed himself as folio vs: ! was in Greenwich Hospital the 16th of Dc comher. I was • *:>■:•« 18 months as an m-pension. cr. The vanlk.. ‘1111 I had some dispute about sweeping ’' • roo • u it otice a day was enough. A .Magistrate—<: i.» not llie point. Prisoner (verv firmly)—You must listen to me, it'you please, as 1 Save been asked what I havn to say, and I must tel! i! ill my own way. Well, a complaint was made ig.iinst mo, and I was put un der arrest by Sir Richard Kents, and then I was cr polled for life. I pet ! i uied t!io Lords Commissioners and his Majesty to ho restored to theponsion I had when I went in. I was allowed that pension by an Act of Parliament pissctt ill thw reign of Georgs IV., by which whatever pension you had when you went into the hospii il.you were to have when you went out, unless you commited a felony, or struck an Officer, and I did nothing of tho kind. Well, on the 19th of last April I petitioned his Majesty to be restored to my pension again, and ho answered the petition by sending it to the Lords of tho Ad miralty. Harrow, the Secretary, sent a messago to me at the public house. The answer tho King sent to the Admiralty*, Harrow sent me to the Admiral Duncan public house, closo to the dead wall of tho Admiralty; and the an. swer was that li’s M ijesty would do nothing for me. Tho answer was partly* in writing and partly in print. I was in distress very much. I novor broke my fast for tlnee diys. Iain very sorry for what 1 liavo done. I would never think of the like if I was not distressed. II is Majesty never did me an injury, and 1 am sorry that I threw a stone or any thing else at his Majesty; and I am exceeding sorry for it. 1 was for three days without food to break my fast sincu tho month came in, and this is the 27t.li.—Nothing ivso. When I went to Ad. niiral Rowley's house the other day, and asked him for a hit of victuals, ho kicked me. I am very sorry. I must suffix the law, hut I am very sorry for what I have done. They had no right to take my pension, from me. Sir Richird Keats went against tho law of the country, and I am sorry that I did the same. I sulfur from arbitrary power, and I am not the only man in the country who suffers from arbitrary power. POl.ASl), We rejoice to sec that I lie cause of ill-fated, bleeding Poland has no*, only engaged the smypa thics of the British nation, hut awakened the at tention of tho British Parliament. In the flouso of Commons, June 28th, a debate of thrilling in terest occurred on this melancholy subject, from which we select such extracts as our time and limits permit. It was introduced by a speech from Mr. C'utlar Ferguson, who reviewed the history of Poland’s wrongs antecedent to her la."* desperuUj oirugglc for independence, and then passoil to tho cruelties and violations of faith which had been practised upon tier since that war was terminated. lie said,— Of ’22 Polish Generals, who thon became in a manner prisoners under the amnesty, the greater portion were sent fo distant parts of the Russian umpire, and of the whole number only four had returned to Poland. Common soldiers also, who were included in tho amnesty, were marched by thousands to .Siberia; tho lust accounts which had boon received pictured these br.ivo Poles as march, ing in columns towards their place of exile; they were met, day by day, in parties of 10, linkod to getiior by the wrists to a bar of iron, and this was the mode in which the Emperor Nicholas fulfilled the amnesty under which they had surrendered.— [ i no .vioiea oi i oianu were treated in the same way. One anecdote had come to his knowledge, which he would state. The Prince Simonska, who was arrayed in the ranks of his countrymen against the despot’s power, was sentenced to banishment into .Siberia. Tho sentence was enforced on tho day of his Saint’s festival, and the Emperor Nich olas wrote on the sentence, in his own hand, the aggravating punishment that lie must bo sent into .Siberia on foot, chained to tho bar of tho common soldiers. If this was doubted it could bo proved, for tho document was in existence. Tho Princess, Ins mother, urged by her natural feelings, sought to moderate the rigor of bis sentence. The Em 4 so far r. iemod as to allow the substitution of • - > • i. »n condition that the Noble ui m . . 043 n • had been driven into r’ •' which had be. ■ • on at the death *>i ms w . v .i, ,,ropo.-ed to him.

Ho left a daughter 1 - i 1 1 .11 n, eight years old. — TI10 onier of Mo Russian Government was tliat female i.jfaiits of the Nobility should be taken away from Poland, ai.nl <• 1 ried into Russia. Her ofiiy protector was an o;<l soldier of 70, who had been the companion in arms ot Kosciusko. When tho Russian soldiers werouboutto enforce their orders to convey the infant away, he seized her in his arms, am! deoJe/red ho would not give her up but with his life. His noblo disdain of life ao terri f.od tho Russians that they retired, and loft him in possession of his infant charge. Tho lion, and learned Member then proceeded to observe upon to.*' .uticlo <>f the uknxo which rotated to the ubstra. ic of the children of Poles; and contended tut 1 • w .3 .run a view towards fin illy r< . ,‘oring Mu n 1 ion more complete slaves than tiiay f i • . - r yet neon, and also, that it was in complete accordance with the proceedings of the old Muscovite ruiers, who stopped at nothing to Consolidate the.r power, and who cemented the component purls ol their umpire with blood. All -' 1 *i lit;r ope 1 11 'Wars w ho were parties to the treaty ol V:- mm, u .1 rtg.i to exclaim against the pro. ceeui-i^s of R i.isia. flic otiject of hose proceed ings w as tJ den itiouauzo anil to exterminate Po- , land, and this formed only part of the ultimate views of universal monarchy in Europe, which Russia, ho was convinced, secretly cherished. His learned friend might smile, and urge mentally as * reason for discrediting that aseortion, the fact, that tb* Rnseian Umpire was already so large that it might fall to I'iiu'u* of its own weight; hut lot him recall to recollection tlio immense size ot tho Ko ma.li Empire, which had gone on m an uninter rupted career of foreign coii'juosl to which even ! Britain hod succumbed; and the unalogy which , had exist oil between the two cases, was ipiito until- | cent to warrant him in entertaining a belief that I many of the Kuropeau Slates might fall victims to j the insatiable thirst of aggrandizement by which Russia was actuated, cro tliat empire utterly fell into ruins. He hoped that England would never suffer an attempt to denationalise Poland without interfering with the oilier European States, to prevent it; and tho first slop towards this was to put forth a solemn protest against an act so atrocious in its nature. Ho would not occupy the time of the House any longer—(hear! hear!; llo felt aware that he had very imperfectly urgod the claims [hear] which Poland had to the inlurfercncu of England, and he should therefore conclude by moving that ail humble address be presented to bis majesty, praying that bo would Ihj pleased to order to bo laid on the table, copies of tho manifesto of the Emperor ol Russia, ot tho 1 Utilh February last, ami ot tlio organic statute to which it refers, and also lor a copy «>r extract Irom the desnatch of the British Ambassador at St. Peters burgh, communicating the same to his Majesty’s govern moii t. IioKii Sanimis seconded the motion, and said that not a member of ihoir house who had heard the speech of the Hon. Member for Kiroudpright, hut would raise his voice against tho utter violat ion by Russia of all tlio treaties with the European Powers on the subject of Poland, and more particularly ot the troaty of Vienna which was .. before thorn. It was totally impossible for Poland to bo amal gamated with Russia as a slavish dopendancy, which was tho rendition to which Russia had now redue. cd her: and tiieCMy consoling consideration through out this melancholy scoiio of bloodshed and oppres sion, was, that tlm conduct of Rossi« had complete ly freed, not only Poland, but all the other Euro peun powers from the stipulations contained in the treaty of Vienna, and set them at liberty to take those steps which, utter tho necessary dis cussion, it might Ihj doomed advisable to adopt. Poland might probably bo established as a sepa rate kingdom, to ho placed as a counterpoise, in the north of Europn, to the Russian power, and then a securer state might be ultimately attained for Eurupo, by admitting her amongst the family of nations, to maintain the general balance. There was ono romaikablo feature in this ‘pie-uion, that noithor in nor out of the house was there to In* found oue person who took any other thin that view ot it, which had been so ablv exposed on the other side of tho House. iiORO t ai.mkrsto.n Mid ho should beg the House to excuse bint from entering upon the discussion of the transactions to which tho lion, ami Learned Member had so ably referred; at the same time, ho begged tho House would not suppose the Govern ment to he so blind, as not to have perceived ilia* this country had a right, by tlio Treaty of Vienna, to claim, on the part of Poland, an observance of the conditions of her union with Russia. Lord Viscount Morpeth said it hail been his for tune to receive much kindness and hospitality in Russia, and lie was not without some personal pre dilections for that country. But, said he, if all or much of what wo hear is true,—and much alas ! we know must bo,—if the design is on foot to annihi late the Polish nation, name, constitution, lan guage—all but her immortal memory—the land of Casimirs, and Sigismunds, of Sobieskis ami ICosci uskos, that first resisted the torrent of Mahomedan invasion, and secured tho iibertios and religion of Europe;—if her Princes, and Nobles, and Senators, are consigned to tho dungeons, tho mines, tho ?[raves of Siberia; if her Noble Ladies travel to the oot ol the throne—and I.am told there very pre sence has even sent a chill into the festivities of the capital—and sue not for pardon, hut for pity upon [ those whose fault it was to act with conscientious and heroic, though perhaps despairing, devolion in tho cause of their country, while they thought they had one—and that suit is denied them; if, while confiscation and exile thus track the course of her Czartoriskys and her Sarguskos, her rising and spir ited youth arc daily drafted to swell Ihc ranks of the Russian armies, and to prepuro Te Drums for future triumphs over the freedom of the world,—if, further—oh, crowning horror!—let it bo well attest. ! od before we credit it—childron aro carried olT to j lose the memory of thoir noble country on the fro zen hanks of the Irtisk, or among the mountanous steppes ol Caucasus; if these things be, we may, without much compromising ourselves, say that a case is made out for the energetic intervention of England and Of Europe; \tu may, wiltioot presuming, add, that whatever becomes of that in tervention, great room is left for the rightoous re tribution of Heave.v. Sir Georgu Warrkxder said, lie felt that the | independence of nations had been wounded through the side of Poland, by the infamous partition trea ty. How much more the independence cf nations had suffered by the recent wound inflicted on Po ! l^'id *»y Russia, was hut too apparent to all. He, howover, hoped much from the firmness and abil ity of the Ambassador who it hud been resolved upon should go out on a special mission to Peters burg. Much might be expected from bis principles and his well-known attachment to freedom. There was little doubt but liis Noble I'riond would do bis utmost effectually to secure tho stipulations of the Treaty of Vienna in favor of the Polish nation, and at the same time preserve the peace of I ho Continent. If it were possible that Government should show itself inattentive, or listless, on the subject, he would tell his Majesty’s Ministers that whenever tiie moment arose for taking the sense of the public upon tho question of the wrongs of Poland, it would bo found that the British] na tion and poople sympathised much more intensely with that brave and gallant people than Ministers | had hitherto supposed—(hear). Every British heart beat a responso to the call of that gallant and suffering nation of heroes. With such a gen eral feeling on the part of the British people, he j thought it. would be impossible that any Briiisli ! Ministry would hesitate as to doing its utmost to j insure that the stipulations of the Treaty of Vien- 1 na, as regarded Poland especially, should be car- j ried into effect. Lord Ldrixgton, in terms ot tho strongest sympa ! thy. enumerated the claims which Poland had upon the rest of civilized Europe for tho valour with which she fought for her liborly, and the patience i wi,i' which she had borne the sad results of her 1 | struggle to shake off the yoke, where tho odds wore too groat against her to permit hor a chance of sue. cess. There were however, other considerations 1 namely, political ones,—which almost pressed as I forcibly on all reflecting men’s minds as those of a I humane character. Was it to he supposed that if: Kusisa wero permitted to act with bad faith, and | perfidiously break tho stipulations of the Treaty of Vienna with her allies, as regarded Polish independ. ence, that any well-founded hope could be ever en tertained that there was .any security for the main tenance of peace in Europe, or for tho continuance of the independence of States in tho immediate neighbourhood of a powor gigantic ns it was faithless?—(hear, hear.) Was Russia now en riched with the spoil and plunder of Poland, with an army recruited by force from that bravo but reluctant race of patriots and heroes, to he suffer ed to gather strength in undisturbed repom, in ordwr to follow up, with greater prospects of suc ce.sa, a career of resistless and insatiate amhi. lion?—.(hear.) He felt himself called upon here to do justice to the efforts of our Munster (Lord Cas. tlcreugh) to secure, by the Treaty of Vienna, the maturation of Poland to her independence and her proper rank amongst nations. As far as treaties could go, those objects wore secured; but what se curity WHvi there lor the independence of the rest i ot Europe, if her aggression in order to acquire ; territory were not in this instance checked by na tions whose turn was sure to conic to submit to tho yoke, were they now remiss i« asserting the muse ot insulted and betrayed Poland? lie expected and hoped much from the connection of the Noble Is>rd about to proceed on a mission to St- f’otors burgli with the Noble Premier, as well as from bis attachment to liberty and to liberal institutions; and he thought it highly probable the knowledge 1 ot these circumstances would inspire, even in those despotic regions, all the friends of froedom with i courage and confidence. Much as lie deprecated any thing like an attompt to plunge, by violent counsels, this country in a war, Ito believed the best means, in ibis instance, to avoid such a result, would be to remonstrate with boldness and prompt itudn — (hear.) If this country were to assert the cause of Poland and her wrongs, and to draw the sword, with our free and liberal neighbour, there could be little doubt of the result. It would, ut least, bo a consolation to find that the sword would not l,c drawn, in this instance, as it had boon in 1815, when wo had only presorved our-! sclvos from the disgrace our allies incurred, by not sharing in t lie spoils of other independent States of' Europe. Mr. O’CoNNF.t, said he was almost afraid to trust himself in the expression of his sentiments upon n subject which naturally must induce one to adopt I language unbecoming tho character of these deli-' Iteration*. Ho could not conceal from tho House the sentiments of disgust und abhorrence with which ho had heard the details of the cruelties prac tised by order of the Russian Autocrat upon this generous and brave nation. Hr had heard to-night of tho rights conferred on Poland by tho Treaty of Vienna. Rights! Had she no rights antecedent to that treaty? Had not that Congress proved they were themselves rohbors and partners in guilt? Po land hud taken no part in the antecedent struggle. France and Russia had both run over her, it was true. Hut Poland had rights antecedent to the in famous and ineipiiteiis spidiat ion of 1772 and 17111. That spuin'ion hud rendered unsafe und insecure those very Thrones, which looked with delight on the unjust territorial acquisitions that political ini. quity had procured them. There were two dis tinguishing and prominent features in tho case of tne brave Poles—their great merits and their great wrongs. Cutoiiclicd with admiration tor the one, or pity for the other, tho miscreant conqueror had gone trampling on the prostrate people of that coun try—violating every institution they respected_ wantonly wounding the better fueling* of both sex es—nay, with a barbarity unheard of in all history, tearing from their parents the littlo children, to transplant them to the wild wastes of Siberia. Gra cious God! what must liuvo been thu feeling of a Polish mothei, at this sacrifice of her loved otlsring? Then a Indy, the wife of a Polish General, within this fortnight, had been announced as having plunged a knife into the bosom of her little child ren, rather than stiller them to be torn from her arms, and banished at the inhuman mandate of the tyrant. lie heard with sorrow and regret, a Noble Lord, avowing the respect lie personally entertain ed for the Sovereign alluded to. lie should he n shniucd to know, in private life, a man who had been guilty of only onc-liundrelh part of those enor mities, which rendered it positively a disgrace to bo his acquaintance. Was the load of guilt removed because he wore a crown? He would not hesitate to say that such was his grasping and lawless am [ hition, that it lie could only arrungu his finances i and his treasure, so that, tor a couple of campaigns | ho would maintain 200,001) of his barbarous hordes in tl o heart of Kuropo, nothing would save the ci vilized world from his designs, short of all Kuropo rising to check the barbarick irruption—(loud cheer ing tor some time.) Had not the Treaty of Vienna been violated Iroin its commencement? Kxccss of insult and oppression had roused the Poles lo re sistance, but that was no palliation to the cruelties and oppression heaped on them by this modern Hotli, who, like Altila, might with justice assume an equal titlo lo that which he delighted in,—“the scourgo ol God.”—(hear, hoar.) Great as had been • in ir MinerivigN, uiih iiodio people had never wince 11 i2, despaired of tlio issue when tilings should ho ripe. Nor did he despair of them—though at the ; crisis of thoir fate we were too much occupied with ! •be Reform Rill; now that was settled, it would be i seen that tlie people of this country were actuated 1 by the most lively sympathy for the people of l’o j laud. Despite of tlio apathy which characterised J out conduct formerly, and despito of tho indiffer. ' f’tu'o *>f l.ouis Philip, whom lie regardod as an equal J traitor to tlio cause of liborty as any other Sovo I reign it, Europe, these two groat nations would ne : ver be induced tamely to look on and see Poland, once tlio barrier of Christian Europe against the | Infidel Ottoman, swept from the map of Europe, | and blotted from tlio list of independent nations.— j No country hud ever deserved so well of Europe, | and no country had over been worse treated. IIo hoped, however, that the nationality of Poland would soon be restored. Mr. Schonswar said that the Poles had been too long trampled under foot, oppressod ami degraded. He trusted, however, that the peoplo of England, backed by tlio House, would interposo and preserve the people from extinction. ( ol. Evans relied upon the declaration of Lord Palmertson that this country had a right to call upon the Emperor of Russia for explanation. Most Hon. Mombers who had spoken, had Shrunk from tho mention of war; but if war was the only alter, i nitivo to be expected from the negotiations, it ; ought not to bo regretted. With very little ex : ponso tho commerce and maritime interest of Rus sia might he completely at tho mercy of England and trance, and her possessions in Asia and on ; the coasts of the Black Sea were equally liable to successful attacks. Mr. Gully Knight attributed many of tlio disas I l*5*8 ol Poland to tile war party in France, who had urged'on the insurrection. This party had much to. answer for. Pol md had been basely deprived ! of her existence as a nation, blotted out from tho map ol Europe, mid extinguished in the provinces ol tho usurper. It became the duty of England to see that that treaty, which had been so strictly adhered to in riveting the chains of Italy, should also he as st rictly observed in preserving the nation ality of Poland. As England had been at th.1t lime the arbitress of nations, she was hound to see the treaty enforced. lie was satisfied that not all the power ol Russia would ever be able to Russian irr Poland. Mr. Pigott expressed Iris strong concurrence in the well-merited reprobation cast upon the Empe ror ot Russia, and hoped that tho treaty would bo laid, upon the table by which England pledged her self to pay the tyrant a sum of money. Sir R. II. Inglis expressed his surprise that his Majesty’s Ministers had suffered such language as had been used in the House without notico, and that they had said nothing in dofenco of a Govern ment with which t hey had recommended his Majcs j 1° continue upon the samo terms as before, j \V ilh such a treaty just delivered, it was improper to describe any person, much loss a Sovereign, as a miscreant. Mr. Cutlar Fcrgusson denied that ho had used any such language. Sir Robert Inglis reforred to the Hon. Member for Kerry, whom he did not now sec in his place. Eon! Palmerston—No man regretted more than I I did to hoar the expressions which fell from tho lion, and learned Member for Kerry; but not con ceiving myself responsible for those expressions ' (hear, hear)—I should not have been justified in interrupting the Hon. and learned Member. Much as I regret tho use of such expressions, 1 do not feel that I am called upon,' or justified, in obt rud ing myself again upon the House upon such a subject. Mr. Beaumont said that the Noble. Lord would have acted most injudiciously if he had used such a word, but he (Mr. B.) was delighted to hear those words from the Hon. Member for Kerry. Ho re peated the word.*, “miscreant conqueror,” and wassuro they were only the echo of the voice of the people of England—(hear, hoar). When the people of England were called upon to speak, their language was strong and effective. Mr. Iluinc would not only call the Emperor of Russia a “miscreant conqueror,” but a pionster in human form. Sir R. Inglis—I said that those words ought not to lie made use of without notico. Mr Hume would repeat the words, and they were too tvenk to express his detestation of the barbari ties of such a tyrant. If tho atrocities which had been detailed were Ulitrne, let any member stand up and deny them; if they were true, was any Ian gtiagc too strong to apply lo them? Mr. Wyse said that this was not the first lime he bad bad occasion to observe in that House great ten derness towards the most questionable Sovereigns of I, irope. He was sorry to have heard sentiments expressed in thnt House which would seem, if not to sanction, at least greatly to pallialo tfio acts of oppressive rulers. Mr. Baring concurred with the Hon. Member for Oxford in protesting against the use of Ian gnage which, if not checked or noticed by the Go vernment, was more likely than any thing else fo disturb the peace of Europe, and to involvo this country in nil the embarrassments of war. He felt that it would be impossible to preserve this country from constant difficulty and peril, if, '►n every occasion when a grievance of any kind occurred—whether in Poland or Prussia, or the Peninsula or Italy—wo were to sally lorlli and adopt the quarrel as our own. At flic same time he felt it was quite right that this country should endeavour, under the 'Treaty of Vi. eiuia, to obtain a more just and humane treatment of the Polish nation. In that respect he relied ful. Jy upon the temper and discretion, as well as the firmness ot the Noble Lord who had been delegated lor that purpose; and ho hoped lie would not adopt the tono which hail been recommended in that House, to-night. He could not help remarking up. on the wanton disposal of X5.000,000 of public money, which, ho contended, there was not a titfle of obligation upon this country to supply—(hear, »««.) nourishes in favor of Poland might do very well for election speeches—although he did not mean to doubt the sincerity of the speeches which had been delivered to-night—but be thought that i the countenancing so profuso and uncalled-for an expenditure was a much more just indox of the i eel mgs of Leiitlcmcn with regard to flic rights of | their own country— hear.' Mr. Siiikl suid tltc Member for Tbclford would have ub -“Mince our words, “And mollify damnation with u phrase." Ho is right—but bo should make allowance for otlicix who has sometimes occasion for indulgence towards Ins own vocabulary, and he should consider a man us pardonable for shaking of u miscreant on a throne as for speaking of Ins fellow citizens (a part of the English people) as “blackguards in the streets”—(hear.) For his (Mr. Ninel’s) part lie would not call Nicholes a miscreant, because when be saw u man delegating Ins brother, in whom the spirit ol Nero must have transmigrated, if there bo a inetenipsicliosis among tyrants, to tread the heart of Poland out—when we see him betraying a nation of lieiocs into submission, and then trans porting them to Siberia, shaving oil' the gray hair of Nobles with tho blood of Europe’s saviors in their veins, degrading and enslaving women, spa. ring neither age nor sex, and thrusting the hand of a ruthless and° Herod-liko infanticide into the era dlo of Polish childhood—when wo see him acting thus, and leaving himself nothing to add “to dam nation,” wo should not call him “miscreant,” but exclaim, “Oh! thou art worse than words can give the out.”—(Cheers.) Nir Robert Pkki. said it was very well for Hon. members to say that now was tho time to go to war, and that Franco and England should compel Russia to act justly towards Poland; but if over there exist oda moral obligation upon any country, to weigh well the justice of entering upon war, as well as tho probability of its success, it existed at the present moment upon Croat Britain. Before they lightly determined upon war, and predicted its success, they should consider deeply us to its probable con sequences. He would suggest to the lion. Contlc man, (Mr. Ferguson) an addition to his motion. As under tho Treaty of Vienna it was said that Poland was to have a Constitution, he thought a copy of that Constitution ought to be laid on tliu table, with the other documents. lie doubted the policy of exciting the pride and resentment of tho Russians to such an extent as to induce thorn tv rally on the side of tho Emperor, to protect not only him but themselves front insult [hear, hear.] Such language was calculated to lower tho character of tho House and to diminish ils means of rondoring assistance to Poland; by making it impossible for Russia to listen to mode rate remonstrances from those who had indulged in such language. lie would venture to say that the Poles themselves never indulged in such language [hear, hear.] It was by pursuing a inoro dignified course that they had excited in their favor tho sym pathies of tho pcoplo of Europo. Before tho Hous6 indulged such sympathies to tho extent of risking a war, ho thought a clear caso should ho made out, not only of obligation, on the part of this country, to interfere, but also of probable success in tho event of such interference. — (hear, hoar.) Mr. C. Fkruvson acceded to the suggestions of tho Right Honourable Baronet, and after shortly replying, tho motion wus agreed to, and tho address was ordered to bo presented to his Majesty, by such Members of the House as wero Members also of his Majasty’s most Honourable Privy Council. The orders of tho day were then disposed of, and the House adjourned at half past two. Liverpool Cotton Market.—Friday, June 29.
