[,)ccdv, for at
In a dibcussiofi which took place on the
Corn Laws, in the British Mouse of
Commotis on the 19th of March, wiicn
the resolution imposing a duty on the
Ijarrcl ut' flour of 19(> lbs. equal to the
duty payaijle on six bushels of wheat,
Ml', (irant sfu’cd that the existing pro
tection was large cnoucjh. The price of
flour at Walorlbrd, he stated to be 36
shillings tiie batrrl. The price of A-
merican bonded Hour i\t Liverpool, as
stated in oilicial documents,* was 2G shil
lings ; and if the duty of 20 shillinijs was
added, it was evident that it could not
come into competition with the Irish
Hour. He addtd, tliat he could not
forget the situaticjn in which I’rnjland
stood with respect to the United Slates.
Any further protectin{j duty would be an
absolute prohibition of American Hour.
Mr. Peel, iti some subsequent rcmaiks,
said, “ lie was satistied that the (juan-
lity of Hour likely to be im])oricd from
the United StatJ-s could occasion no
dat.j;er, and if the iiiitish I’arliainent
excluded almost the only article capable
oi' being sent from America, we might
say wha' we pleased about Iil)eral [irinci-
ples and IVi e trade, but we should
get little credit for our assertions. The
U. S. (he contitiued) were ilerived with
us from one common origin, and spoke
one common language, and ii’the first op-
poi tunity were iluib taken, of excluding
an article of manufacture, the residents
on the other side of the Atlantic would
think that the real object was, not t(i pro
tect the millers of Ireland, but to gratify
some lurking animosity, which might
|)roduce retaliation, intinilely more dan
gerous aiul disadvantageous tiian the pos
sible intrcduction of a small quantity of
Hour.” 'J’he remarks were produced by
an amendment ofl'cred by Sir Jolin New
port, proposing an additional duty ol
four sbillings (nearly a dollar) per barrel
on imported flour. Our readers will thus
perceive, that, testy as (ireat Britain
shows hersell' to be whenever we propose
any increase of luly on her products,
she is ready with propositions to tax our
commodities, at all times. It is but fair

In the March number of the I.ondon
Sporting Magazine, we find, among the
acivertisemetits, several which in our in
fancy of taste am\ greenness in the science of
spending money unnecessarily, will sound
to us somewhat strangely.
1st. We have an advertisement from
“Smith’s Lo^ Biscuit Manufactory—
warranted prepared from wheat and out
Hour.” 'I he Dog Biscuit baker has
been honored by the iniroduction of his
biscuits into the kenneis of stag and f x
hounds of several noblemen and gentle
men. It appears they “ have been tried
against oatineul,” ami proved vic torious,
being found “a superior food for the
kennel.” They are 20 shillings |,er cwt.
—and are recommended by the certifi
cates of the sporting gentlemen. This
must sound strange to us, when we read
ui the pdpers ol the same age, nay the
siime day, as well as countrj, of the
.Ustress ol the Manchester weavers
and ..he Irish peasantry : the former
'jeing in a state of actual starvation, and
ilie latter inulupiying their specie^', but
emaciating their I'orms on tea and pota
toes. Would It not be well if some of the
.’togslieads of dog biscuits, warranted,
js they ar‘, ‘o be of wheat and oat flour,
were directed to the cottage of the wea
ver and the cabin of the peasant, rather
than the dog kennel I
2dly. The Nimrod, a new coach, is
started from London to Southampton,
“ in eight hours lo a minute,” to which
are added three notes of admiration—!!!
li is warranted that “the"above con
cern will be conducted on the fust
principles of modern voachinp;.'* We think
ihree notes of admiration might have
appended lo this flourish. We should
be gl.i ' of a little insight into the *• prin-
ci; les of coaching.” Alas, and alack-a-
day ! »e arc yet two or three centuries
behind tireat Britain, not only in the in
vention of luxuries, but in the proper ap
plication of language—in the baking of
dog biscuits, as well as in the adaptation
of principles to coaching.
."div. Tompson’s patent self adapting
saddle. The advantages of this saddle
appear to be that it will fit any and every
horse, and without injuring the most
tender .skin. ^Ve have nothing to say a-
bout this, except that some of our own
saddlers should catch the idea.
The number of the sporting Magazine,
which favors us with the above annunci
ations, contains little else which can in
terest us. There is a great deal of space
occupied by an article on the English
game law.s, which are the disgrace of
that country, and the wonder of ours ;
the spirit of the article may be under
stood by the concluding paragraph as to
the existing laws—“I’he popular cry,
we know, is against them; but let them
(the members of Parliament) be firm :
“ The Nation sinks, by darling schcmcs oppres
“When vcngcance listens to the fool’s request.”
This proves that “ Nimrod,” who signs
the article, is a prodigious aristocrat, as
well as “ a mighty hunter.”—Nat. Journal.
Kmigratlon from ICurope to this coun
try is every year increasing. From Great
Britain it is greater than from any other
part of the globe : for since the first of
May, near three thousand steerage pas
sengers must have arrived in the dif
ferent shij)s that sailed frotn England and
Ireland. The IhtHrnr arrived at ^uel)PC
from Belfast with 229 settlers ; the Cam-
illus, at New York, with 153 ; the Iloxiard

India., 76 ; liohert Eduutrds^ -M ; (’lemnlis,
r.;] : Josrp/iine^ from i’elfast, 158; Great
Jiritain, l.'>2. To this list many others
might lie added. 'I'he New York (la-
zette of yesterday, iu noticing the same
subject says :
“Trom Satui-day to Wednesday, in
clusive, there were 11.'') arrivals at this
port, viz: :j.T ships, ISbi igs, ,'i.l schtjoners,
and 21 sloops. 'I’hese vessels brouf'ht
dhout fifteen hundred passe II fi;rr.'>\ the grea
ter ])roportion of whom are emi
grants from Great Britain. Numer
ous other vessels from Europ(‘, now duo,
have also on board, as we arc informed,
a great many emigrants, and we also
learn, from a late number of the Glasgow
Chronicle, that several of the persons
about to abandon their native home for
the United States, have long been in
Glasgow, and were conside.-ed as the
most cHicient in iheir respeclive trades.
'Po such persons a hearty welcome is al
ways extended.” Philadelphia paper.
In the year 170.5, the following occur
red at Nismes, in Languedoc.: A gar
dener’s ass having brought some goods
to market, and being unloaded, while the
master was busily engaged, went into
t-he Chuxc^. whiwh ^’as i>ard by tUeetand^
and, meeting with the basin of holy wa
ter, took a hearty draught of it; but the
poor beast being unfortunately detected
and seized in the act, was tried by a for*
mal process for sacrilege. Counsel, in
deed, was allowed the ass, but the evi
dence being clear, judgment was pro»»
nounced against the grave animal, that
he should be first hanged, and then burnt;
the gard«ner being, at the same time^
condemned to pay all the exp*nses of thb
process. Engligh paper*.
