THE LIVERPOOL MERCERY- yT PARSON MCLOCffS FURTHER EFFUSIONS. ff. have been favoured with another number of Mr. Mulock's o hl lumi-er, which ought, by the bye, to be enutfed the fSvbgellaWr. as he lays on the backs of almost all. sects r liasesmOstlusiUy, with the most exemplary impartiality. ;lT' Sck, in religion, is an ultra, or what may be called an yi:; TmiVr: he is such a monopolist of the article that Tie p'f , nt alloVany body else to have as much grace as would wUl no aHO ' J and buttcr. as Falstaff says.

The claimant had nothing to relv unon but the justice of his cause. It was a striking circumstance that, with his slender means, lie uaa Deen sole to produce thirty-three witnesses, several of them of the most respectable description, who had sworn positively to having seen the monument; the existence of which was positively denied on the other side. Sir James Scarlett spoke on the other side, and called the Dowager .Mrs. Leigh, wno, in tne most positive terms contradicted the evidence tor the claimant. Several wills and other documents were produced in opposition to the plaintiff's claim, and the further consideration of the case was adjourned to Thursday, the 11th instant.

COBBETT'S ADVICE TO YOUNG MEN. " Id tliose teach others, who themselves excel, And counsel freely, who themselves act well." C.ibbett has announced his intention to publish a work under !lv!:iili: and no . one who knows him can Oouot Ot nis com e!encv to act the, cart of moral finger-post. If there be any meaning in the old proverb" set a to catch a " his work cannot fail to be a useful moral and political bescon, if the writer, for the first time, will stick to the truth. !' h-c will honestly coufess his .own peccadillos, as that other but comparatively virtuous egotist, .Rousseau, did, he may be emi-ntritltf useful to mankind. There is scarcely a virtue which he may not, by contrast, en- inrce, by appealing to tne enects or its opposite ui uu.uwn cbsracter; and the general contempt into which he has long of every species of baseness. This we most thoroughly believe, and nn man on earth can SDeaic more to tne nurDOse on ims pjir.t than Cobbett. Sir Francis Burdett lent him large sums of aionov. for which he has received nothing m return, either in i:iacinle or interest, except the most atrocious and groundless auk'.' This ingratitude and malevolence have, however, utterly failed of producing any effect, for two reasons : first, Sir Francis Surfeit's character is unassailable. He has evec.exhimted A firm, unshaken, micorrvpted sOiti, ' Amid a sliding age. No better public man ever lived, in any age or any country ; nor aefheremany men living more respected and beloved than he is by 1! around him , especially by his tenantry : but if he were the very reverse of this, Cobbett's slander would be harmless, because no o:ie whose opinion is of much value attaches creait to any thing that Cobbett says. With the natural powers of an Ajnx, lie has become impotent as old Priam. He has wantonly parn-Ijsal his own arm, and although, like that of Cain, it is raised -;ijat, every man, its oiow is reauy J. ctunt tmocua . Kc rescnibles a do" that has underaone the oueration of worm H ! he mav srowl. ffrin. foam at the mouth, and show his teeth, but he cannot bite ; and with all his talent he is, therefore, the ust Harmless antagonist whom any man can encounter. We have by us some specimens of a new work he is said to be ineparing, on ethics and political economy, from which we intend, at our leisure, to give some extracts. How they came mto our possession it is not to our present purpose to reveal: 'tWhaps our Bottle Imp has aided us on the occasion ; but " tnat's neither hprp nor thpro ' 1'here is much truth in the following extract from what Cob-tot calls the Bloody Old Times. Some people laugh at the nick-imes which are so prominent in the writings of this coarse, vulgar fellow ; but it would be difficult to point out the humour evec the meaning of almost any of the slang. What wit is '.ere a Daddy Burdett? for our own parts, we can neither 'cneadnortailofit; and we require no further proof that utterly fails in bis use of this species of rethoric, than Hni!act that we "ft1, heard any one, except himself, call vt-fkl", Dddy," or Sir Glory ;" nor Mr. O'Connell, " the W-EiUs.

TO THE EDITORS OF THE LIVERPOOL MERCURY. fjFwTr.EMEw As I am. like Sr. Paul. " a citizen of no mean city," I feel an interest in all its institutions and regulations. Not to take up much of your time, allow me to ask, what do our dapper livery servants m ine, peaceable anu respect-ahle streets, when the unrulv and riotous, the debauched and dishonest, are left to themselves, and the plodding and indus- tnous inhabitants ot the town, wno pass tnrougn tnem, snDject to all sort's of invective, insult, and not unfrequently to assault ? Are'manv of the streets available for the purposes of 'perambu lation, from the hoops, tops, and ropes of the juvenile practitioners, who are defended in all their abuses and depredations by their more guilty and responsible parents ? Why do they not employ themselves in taking an account of dogs kept by thousands who receive parish relief, and thousands more who pay no tax, and thus rid us of an. intolerable and dangerous nuisance? I ask, why are they not where their services would be available? " What do they in the north, when they should serve Their sovereign in the west?" Ir is a hurlesoue. an absolute farce, to see the auiet. not to -say comfortable parade of our newly appointed police, who, when you ask them what is their duty , are at a loss to answer you. I would whisper to the Mayor, that a for these sinecurists will not suit our purposes. VIATOR. We are glad to see the attention of the public directed to this new branch of the police. If, as we presume, the public have to pay for this establishment, they have a right to expect that the officers do all that can be reasonably" expected from them. They seem to have ample time, and they might visit every street in the town occasionally, so as to prevent the possibility of those dangerous nuisances which are so abundant. We scarcely walk through one street without finding something which requires looking after, dangerous cellar lids, holes in the parapets, &c The very dangerous holes on the parapets in Con-cert-sfreet and Rathbone-street have been attended to, in conse-quence of our repeated remonstrances, but they bad endangered the limbs of the public long before we chanced to see them. There are in this town scores, perhaps hundreds, of holes in the parapets of a most dangerous nature, as they are very likely to dislocate tne toot oi a passenger, especiauy in ine aars. j. nere is one of this description, which we chanced to see yesterday, on the parapet in Pitt-street, opposite the Methodist Chapel, somewhat nearer Cleveland-sauare. In out opinion the day police should be fined if they suffer such nuisances to pass unobserved. Jsut one ot tne oest objects to which these officers could turn their attention is to the over-loadinz and maltreating cart-horses. This abomination they have it in their power entirely to put an end to, and thus rescue the town trom a tout reproacn. If nasseusers will, from time to time, inform us of the nul sances, especially the holes in the parapets, which they may dis cover m their walks, we shall not tail to notice tnem on tne succeeding Friday. Edits. Mercury.

A etifif confines the sleeves at the wrist, which cuff is pointed, and on it is worked a small bouquet of flowers in different colours. An. elegant blond cap is worn with this dress, lightly ornamented with scrolls of white satin and various small flowers ; and broad strings of white-striped gauze ribbon float over the shoulders. , An Evening Dress, A dress of oiseau de Paradis satin, ornamented at the border by two rows of white gauze bouillones ; over which are placed across, in bias, trimmings of amber-silk, representing touage: the upper bouillione is headed by shk cordon of the same colour as the-fbliage ornaments; and, at equal distances, are seen, dependent from the cordon, two superb tassels. The body isaiade plain, with a very deep falling tucker of rich blond. The sleeves very short, and a tassel descends from the shoulder to the elbow ; two tasselslso ornament the front of the bust, from a cordon which heads the tucker..

TO THE EDITORS OF TEE' LIVERPOOL MERCURY. Gentlemen, As the introduction of poor laws in Ireland is now bringing under the notice of the legislature, by that young but useful and patriotic M. P. Mr. Villiers Stuart, I hope, gentlemen, that you, ih your editorial capacity, will not failto suggest a petition from our townsmen, in favour of the measure", the passing of which is of very great importance to. this country. at large, from its tendency to check the very-great and almost constantmnux ot Irish labourers here,,wno, trom aprospect ot immediate want at home, fly to this country with a few shilRbgs'or pence in their pockets, and are glad to accept employment on any. terms, so that it only affords them a scanty Support. Bj these the Enelish labourer, aecustomed, from his infancy, tothe comfpfts' and some of the luxuries of life,, is either altogether driven from,; the market or forced to accept employment on tne same terms,-which must certainly he insufficient for the wants of a family, however economical : he is consenuentlv driven to the necessity of applying to the parish for partial support, and, from habits of cleanliness and morality, and a spirit unwilling to stoop to pau-nerism. he sinks into the opposite extreme, the almost inseparable attendant of poverty. If, on the other hand, -the Irish labourer fails to obtain employment, his resource is begging in the streets, until, at length, he is apprehended, and sent back to hisowc country, as a vagrant, at tne expense ot me purisu, wnitu, uuui the srreat number that are so sent annuallv. must add consider ably to the poor rates. Of these heavy evils entailed upon this country, through want of a provision foe the poor, the Irish gentry seem altogether ignorant or insensible, and will muster to their aid, in opposition to tne measure, au tne piausime arguments of certain political economists : but it must be considered that they are influenced by selfishness, ignorance, or insensibility. In the first dace the noor rates must necessarily, and with justice, fall very heavily on them. In the next place, many of them being absentees, and not having it before their eyes, are either forgetful or ignorant of the wretched state of the labouring class of their countrymen. Lastly, to those :who reside there, this state being familiar to them from their infancy, they regard it as no evil, and never having seen poor laws put into practice at nome, are entire strangers to tne grana principle which, in this country, obliges their to provide an asylum for the aged, the infirm, and the destitute, To thisim-nortant subject, on which vou have already bestowed no small attention, you will, I hope, again direct the notice of your readers, fay inserting this letter. One great consequence of the passing ot the measure win oe, tnat it win stimulate tne insn irentrv tn stoD the nroerress of novertv as much as nossible, by providing employment for the poor, which I hope will, at length, raise a country possessing' every natural advantage that, can be desired; from a state ot degradation and misery, to wmcn centuries of neglect and misrule have reduced her to a state of prosperity and plenty.

At a time when the emnlovmentof a super abundant population, and the diminution of wretchedness in the cictep island, have become subjects of erave and serious inquiry, allow me to ask, through your medium, why the interesting. and. feasible plan of the nymph fishery is allowed to.dieaway, or, at least, rest in abeyance r . . .
