The wretch who attempted the life of the duke of Wellington has been, according to several private letters received from. Paris, arrested Canlillon it said to be bis name. lie had bten in the army, and is stated to have been chosen by the authors of the plot on account of hit daring intrepidity, aod of his attachment to t'tose principles br which Europe has been made the sceno of such butchery and bloodshed. One private letter in a morniuz paiier tart, that "it is an infernal conception ol a very small number of f rench refugees, aided by tome Belgian! who participate in their dangerous principles, and who cannot accustom themselves lo the repo.e which Europe ie enjoyiug." That the Freuth refugees, wbofc elements wore discord and war and pillage, should be inimical to a system which lias put them down, we can easily believe Uut why should nay Belgians make common cause with them They at least had no reason to be satisfied with those events which made them the slaves of France, and exposed them to all the miseries or Bonaparte's tyranny. Another private letter from Paris, lays, " that after the attempt upon the Duke of Wellington, the assasrio succeeded in retraining Brussels, whence he returned to hit mistress in Paris. It it from Ibe revelation! of Ibis woman, who was in Ins confidence, that the Freuch authorities have obtained (it is affirmed) the most circumstantial and positive testimony. Tbe active vi gilance of the police was already directed to the assassin's mistress, on account of Maul met demanding a bed in her apartment the night of his arrival in Tarit. Yesterday the veneraMe champion of parli amentary reform, major Cartwright, bestowed, at it wat announced, iu Palace ynnt, hit la. t le gacy, on the people of England, in a string ol resolution ana ;elilioo, so long, it wat deemed necessary to their being rend that he should occupy no time in speeches. The meeting wat marked by some novelty. The proceedings were broken into short parts, and had more of a dramatic and entertaining effect than on former occasions, when they had been fouud to confound, lire, and disperse the spectators. Great pains had been taken to arrange tho busincrs of the day at previous private meetings, that no desultory ebullitions, no democratic intrusions, should deform the beauty of the major's gift. Lord Cochrane, Mr. Hunt, kc. had not been let into the ortenlout secrets, or if lot iu, had not concur red in them, tor they broke iu upon the order laid down, ami considerably disturbed the harmony upon which the secret committee had Calculated. ' One of the first resolutions consisted in an assertion, that during many years the parliamentary reformers have been the constant objects ol iho calumny and persecutions of those who are interested in corruption ; and by way of totting t good example, the venerable mnjor presently proposed another resolution, calumniating, in the most gross and scandalous manner, lord Vomers, for having written a very able pamphlet aginl reform, which would not hare been noticrd by ihe major, had it not shaken hit caue and ttung him to the heart, to that meek heart of his which it so free from any spirit of detraction. The venerable major accused lord Somen in a formal resolution; and Mr. Hunt ditcorered that his lor,lhip it the descendant of a groat thief, who had been impeached by the commons fur robbing the people of their property, which frreat thij was acquitted by the lords, who thereby opened a door for every tpecict of fraud aud villainy. Mr. Huut did not mean by this that the acquit tals of I lone and Dr. Watfon opened a door for biarphemy and Irea oo. Such inferences he only draws when acquittalt are against hii wishes. There wat something so indecent in the major' resolution, however, thit on the sug'eftion of lord Cochrane, it was withdrawir, the major ix - pressing himself contented if it wat thought h had fixed " a ttigma" on lord Somen. This, irom the complainant against caltimuy! But calumny it a favorite food with the Pahtce - yanl reformers, universally. It is the sauce thai makes all they rat delicious. Hem e each ol Ihe chiefs largely supplied the guests. .Vr. Hunt and tir Francis liurdett calumniated Mr. Cantiiug in tho grmsot manner at the dread champion of the present houjo of commons ; the latter adding a savoury di - h of slander against lord Sidinouth and Mr. Wilbcrforce. And all this wat done to show how justly the Palace - yard reformers complain of the calumuici heaped upon them ! Among Ihe incidents worth noticing, were lord Corhrane's disapproval of printed petitions to the house of commons, iu opposition to Ihe opinion of .he venerable ma)or, Ins lord'htp conceiving that ii h petitious could not be supposed to convey tho Sntancous sentiments of tho petitioners His lordship said, no less than four hundred forced petitions had been tent to him to he present - ed, and he pretended to believe they hd been forged by the enemies of reform. Now, we think Jifferently. We know of several tliat were pre - wnted, professing to rome from places that never hear J of them till they were announced iu Ihe newspaper reports of the. proceedings in parliament. The trial in the hark pa;e of our paper yesterday, gave a curious and most instructive account of the way in which these petitions are got up. A person was paid three shillings ler day, for wandering about and procuring signatures to a petition for reform, as be was told, of which he knew not the contents, nor the persons who signed it. I le got three, shillings a day far hit trouble, that wat all he cared about. We know that a year ago etnitsaiiet were hired in London, to go over the country, proposing petitions far reform in various rouutry towns and villages ; the country newspapers at the time al - lorded evidence of this latt, and we have reason to inspect those emissaries, to shew themselves worthy of their hire, fabricated petitions and sent them op to London, as tbe petitions of towns and vdbvges, which never had hea - d a word upon the subject. This b the way in which those petitions were surged, and not, nt the noble lord ays, by the enemies of reform. Aod is there any difficulty in guessing at the parties who promote this infamous practice .' Have we forgot the Middlesex election of 1801, when wretches were hired by the hundred to perjure themselves, u ! lid so perjure themselves by voting for sir Fran cis Bordett, they receiving a stipulated hire for uiKllM'sf IhV'rrufie. tWa IDIOT of 1... .,ie I daily, tome twice t - dar ; tbe facuar.ctetordintii reports of the trialaef some 01 those miscreants for those penuries, t Thomas Price, Matthew Creese, fce.J published by Hatcbard. And would it be wonderful ifthe same parlies now resorted to similar meant to procure petitions' for reform ? Mr. Hunt called on sir Francis Burdett and lord Cochrane, tbe representative! of Westmin - ter. ta declare their opinions upon universal luflrage. They answered, "not upon compul sion." jUke I - alt tall, they wouiu notoecom - nolleiL and tbe servile mob applauded their re serve, though this parly are bow exhorting the electors all over the kingdom to propose teste to candidates at the next general election. Being called upon to declare bit principles of reform. tir Francis uurtlett repueu Dy vague geaer.u. - ties, boasting of his humanity and zeal for the liberties of his country. Mr. Hunt had tome enemies present. Oneoflhem exclaimed, he (Mr. ilnnt) bad no right to tpeak at he was not a Westminster bouseliolder. Yet this did not pre. vent auolher from soliciting a speech from Mr. Wooler, avpwing, at the time, be wat no West - minster householder, just as a theatrical singer is called upon for a song at a public dinner. Mr. Wooler obeyed the call. A Mr. Cbas. Pitt at - tempt d to tpeak, but not being known, the mob would not hear bim, lest be should derange that which bad b.en settled at the previout .private meeting. And all this was done for the cause of freedom, to enable the meeting to judge of the question after - due deliberation ! To secure unanimity, tbey would hear only one side. ' The major reminded every one of their shores in the government, which each in his mind converted into money, idleness and dissipation. Lord Cochrane affirmed that fear wat the ttrong - est motive which operatod in the house of commons, and advised public meelingt to intimidate it. He was in a grave mood, and complained of the levity or the old major, who attempted lo oe wit'yonlord Somen. Tbe major kissed the rod. admiltine that hit wit was unseasonable. .Vr. Hunt, alluding to Hampden, advised the refusal to pay taxes, taying, thai brave patriot took op the sword and overtaned the tyranny which sought to rob him. , At thit the mob ex - Dressed disapprobation, recollecting Mr. Hunt's advice to re.ort to phyiical force at Spa - fields. Mr. Hunt complained that neither Sir rrauri; Burdett nor lord Cochrane closely attended their duty as representatives of Westminster, saying, Mr. Canning was tcourgiog the reformers so severely, turning them into such ridicule and contempt, they were losing ground. Tho two representatives, with an aristocratic hauteur, dis dained to be catechised, and replied only by a - busing Ihe house of commons ; which, by permitting the many libels upon it, appears to us lo endanger the whole interesli and welfare of the state it is appointed to protect. - rAK.13, Alarcn Sf.
