Smith said be was drsirouioi Dattine question to the right nonortthlegenDeuino opposite, with respect tu old and Ions; conies ted subject, ne wa a - ware of tlienoaucial dilEcutiies ol the right hon a Ue gent, and he bad a t Uierefore made any motion ou the suoject. i lie claimants were so worn out Iry tusnente and expectation, that it were belter for them to be deprived altogether only of their claims hut of their existence. Four or five toicides had been occasioned by brokennes8 of heart. He had differed from them their political opinions, yet be considered that Ihey had a claim ou the faith of the country. He witlied to be informed if any thing wasto be done them next session. The Cham - elk of the Exchequer said, he felt force of the observation of the hoo. gpnt. that be could bold out no hope a to the claim in question. Yesterday a meeting was held in the Cmwn Anchor Tavern, lor the purpose of no - niont - a lit and proper person to succeed lord Cochrane, as representative lor the city of Westmin ster. Lord Cochrane came forward amidst loud ap plauses, stated, that a few days ago notice had been riven that the people, (at leant those in po pulous towus,) would have an opportunity of declaring who should be thoir representatives. tlntugtt it was deeply to be deplored th t so few places cxcrcicd thrir rights properly. The nnuse of commons could only be reformed from without, 'for uoleu this was the case, the same system of corruption would stil' continue, and indeed he was much afraid that no salutary rn - foriu would ever be effected till ministers brought people to that state ol degradation and distress which could do longer be tolerated. A glorious precedent of reform bad once taken place in that house, by means of one, who, to ue a vulgar phrase hud usurped the rtignt N vovtrnmenl. anil he was firmly pcrsaadrd no thini; could do now but a similar procccdiug. Lcavuif the country now lor tome time, forrra ods which they would afterwards hear, he begird Id assure them, that though parliament hut not been dissolved, he would Mill have resigned seat, convinced that he should uot have done duty were he lo act otherwise. Now that addressed them for the last time, he hoped ihey would indulge him with a few observations about him;elf. Here hi feelings overcame him. Tho conduct of no man had been more misrepresented than bis had been, and it was not difficult for hi in to eiplam to what source that was owls;. Before this he ei( cted lo have done it, but be could assure them thru thauld hate all Hie particular! tun. When h again visited his country, be Imped to see public spirit rekindled, and' that apathy annihilated winch at present disgraced liu people, who, in stead of looking to that bouse as the seat of corruption, were too apt to view it as a place whence justice would emanate. Upon his re turn, if there should be occasion to rouvey their o;ipre:fors to the rock where they bad placed tnai m'lgiiammoiM individual whose greatuess ol tninu mcy coum new equal, and whoce worst crimes ltu - y had exreeocd, he, if no other pernio was found, would willingly perform the ser vice. If ever the people tuoiild be oppressed bv corrupt parliament, he would like to do what other times had ben done by CROMWELL. semi ir.eui from the place Ihey were unworthy fill. Thanta were then voted to his lorddiip ; after which he retired. A rtlr. MarUy then prnpncu .Vr. Hunt as menberraiid wis rcciiid by tialc Jones. To describe the confusion watch touk pl - .ee is utter iuipo'Mble. Mr. Hunt slatrd tint sir Francis Curdeit and lord F alkstone, were in favor of universal suf - Va?e. Lord Cochrane has slated, that he expects to a bent from f.njland i;ht:en months. f Jn the Sd orTUDif lord Cochrane presented to the briiish houi ot' common;, a petition by Wm. Cobbed, in favor of aoiiu d parliaments and u - liiversal SJlTrage. Parliammlacy lirform. On the 2d of June, Frances Bardctt, scoi.

Our private correspondence of this dsy from Paris, is of extensive interest and importance It is therein stated, that what are called the ultra - royalists in France have appealed to the allied powers against the present ministry, and the system pursued by them ; representing the danger that must re.ult lo the existiug settlement, should tho army of occupation be withdrawn, while the king continues in their hands, aud is directed by their councils. This is indeed bold measure ; proceeding, we would hope, from exaggerated tears, though we can readily conceive that men wbo have suffered to the degree to wh h some cf those have suifcred, to whom a - too ardent royalism is imputed, may feel from past experience that they have strong cause for future apprehension. Would to God that those whom they consider as their enemies, may prove to Ihom that Ihcir fears are ffroundles Our readers may recollect a passage in one of Mr. Burke's pamphlets, wherein he charees Mr. Fox with having au agent I at St. Peters - ' burgh, with a view to procure support for his own iiolilical npiuions fioiu that court. The act im puted to tho persons mentioned in our private correspond' Lee is cf a similar nature, but is rendered much more important by the lime and cir - cum.thiices under which it is performed - Urury - Lane Theatre - . Aweeiingof (he com - uMiteeof tiie proprietors of Drury - lan Theatre was held May 30, with the performers. The Duke of Bedford, the Earl of Essex, au I Lord Yarmouth, were tho co. - ninittee. They stated to the pei formers that the Theatre mujt be clo - ,eJ, unless those actors and actresses who had hih salaries consented to their reduction, some V, seine S3, anj tomo 23 pr. ct. Mr. Dowtou indignantly rejected the proposition,and exclaimed, " let the. Theatre be closed thf n." He said, were he a nobleman he should be ashamed c f making smh a propofition. That if they wanted j money he would lend them 500. which would 1 enible them lo r.o on foe a little while, and that the performers would phy oa credit if lec urity was tpvtn them.

U:ie urgea tnat ins tny:'rc coum notex - t witlinut a different tort of management ; and tins was mobt strongly impressed, upon the ground that one etlicient person could do more than a committee ; and ihe name of Mr. Col - man was introduced, as l gentleman highly capable of every thing appertaining to the management of a theatre. There was a proposition that tho theatre should be rlnsrd on Saturday week, by which time it wa considered the principal actors and actresses would have taken their benefits. 'dr. Kean, it is said, will, on the closing of i rurv - i.ar.e Theatre, proceed to several of the prinripi - 1 cities and towns in Yorkshire, where he is engaged to perform rmay of his favourite characters at a high salary.

JTvdnphMa The preent warm weather, as it increases tl.e danger from it, has powerfully drawn the pub ic attention toward! the ducovery of a prevenUtive or a remedv for this direful malady. But, - fall the specifies whxb have been hitherto disc ivc - red, none can be im - nlicitlv re:U - d on e a certain preventative of or cure for cnine mudoes. Great praise, we think, is due to one of our contemporaries for the xeal with which be has repeatedly in troduced to the notice of the public the disco very, made by a ltisi;.n peasant or Simbirsk, ofa plait which is reputed to be a never - failing cure for ilie bite of a rapid dog.

Will, without delay, acertain it qualities, and give to it, if found efticaciou, the sanction oi wieir auuius - ity. The Russian counsellor of atate, Lew - ehein, ba lately published a report upon the snbiact, in which he bear ample testimony to J. - i . i . I i c - .1 - etneacy, at:a prescriuen mo nmnnu ministerine it. The root, which, when dives ted of the tuft of fibre, resemble an onion, must be reduced to a powder, which powder may lie strewed on a slice of bread and butter, and given to the patient to eat. Two or three doe, it is aid, bavealway been found sum cient to effect a cure, even after the hydro - nhohia i declared in ihe patieut, whether it . . be man or animal. . An article from St. Petersburg, dated .May mentions an instance that occurred in the tepritnrv f Cherson. where a mad doe bit four individuals and seven animals. The authorities administered, as an antidote, the Alima PUmtago : several of the animals died, but none of the persons who were bitten have exhibited th? slightest symptoms of madness. This, we think, is a decisive and satisfactory proof of the efficacy of the plant as a preventive of the efl ects of the mania. The following receipts for the cure of the bite of a mad dog were met with by a rever. end clergyman in bis literary researches. He forwarded them to our respected and excellent Chief Magistrate, who has permitted us to publish them for the information of the public. JV the bite of a mad . Wasl, the wound directly with cold water, and keep clensing it for twelve hours, changing the sponge and the water every time. Alter being bit, give one - fourth of a pint of vinegar with a small piece of fresh butter stirred into it, repeat it every six hour till it has been aken three times, then take it once in twelve hours for two days more, which will be sufficient. Uot, at the next change of the moon, take half the above puantity once for three days successively, This has cured after the hydrophobia has ap peared. Or the spirits of salt diluied a little with water applied to the bite, and some drops taken in a glass of water ; or dry salt rubbed into the bite immediately after the accident In the Southern provinces of Spain, they use a strong decoct iou of the bark ana wood ol the Celtic Onsuatis taken inwardly. EDINBURGH, June 5.

With much difficulty we kept her up until day - light, when boardiug him with my boat, found him to be the French frigate Ntreide, cf 44 guns, Com. llu'tellic, from ths West - ladies, bound to Brest. I demanded of him some assistance, which he refused, but told me he would give me live minutes t get all my things out of the ship, if I meant to leave her. I answered, that the ship was sinking, that having rereived damage from him I would abandon the ship to him, and be might do with her what he pleased, lie then gave orders lo burn her, sent his boat lo ber for that purpose, but before the fire made any progress, she sunk, and bis boat had much difficulty lo get away before sho went down. I have found, siuco I have been on board this frigate, that they aw the ship at least fifteen minutes before she struck me, which was about the time I saw the Nereide, but the olMcer on watch at that lime wa a niidihipman, and he would take no advice: the petty officers all told him if he did not (larboard his helm he would run that ship d wn, but he told them be had the command, and if they did not bold their trwae he would knock them down with the speaa.ng trumpet. 1 he Nereide this day arrived in Brest roads, and is quarantined for S3 days, so that I cannot get on shore untd the expiration of that time. 1 shall then take with me the affidavits of most of the petty officers on the watch, and when I get on snore, shall take 'die advice of the consul or agent, and American or English mer chants, if any there. I have received the most uncouth treatment since I have been on hoard this frigate, that I ever experienced in mv life. When I obtain the extension of my protest, I will immediately enclose a copy to you, and shall return borne as soon as possible. I remain, Ike. WM. SHERINGTON.

M I am happy to infirm you that two days ago I got out of quarantine, and since that time myself and crew have been taken before the admiral and interrogated as to the manner in which the frigate run me down, endeavoring, if possible, to lay the blame on me ; but the case was proved to be so clearly afinst them, that all the evidence ihey can bring, even of the c ew of the frigate, is to tbeir disadvantage.
