Mr. Arnatt, however, voted for Mr. Lockhart, and soon after received the following motice:— “Mr. E.

BUCKING ham AND BERKSHIRE, For Aylesbury, the late members, Lord Nugent and Mr. Charles Compton Cavendish, and a new candidate, Mr. Rickford, were put in nomination. Lord Nugent was unanimously received; but Mr. Cavendish as disapproved : Mr. Cavendish gave up the contest.

So long as reason shews us, and history and experience confirm, that, in maintaining the privileges, the ascendancy, and respect, due to Parliament, we alone can look for protection, equally against the undue power of the crown, and against the no less disgusting, and fearful tyranny of a misguided populace, —so long we must leave reform, like every other legislative deliberation, to the free agency of Parliament, I am one of those who are far from thinking the House of Commons in all respects a perfect representation of the people. I think that a certain reform is not only desirable, but absolutely necessary : but I should probably stop far short in the reform of the lengths to which many might be disposed, in their speculations, to proceed. I am eagerly disposed to assist in every proposition, the effect of which would be te abate the power of the crown, and the undue influence of individuals at elections; to render the House of Commons what it should be, a full and fair representation of the different classes of the people of this country to be freely, and in effect, elected by the classes which it represents. I do not wish to see the right of voting extended to a lower descriptiou of persons, in point of property, than those who now enjoy it; for I think that would only extend the undue influence of the crown, and give a wider and surer range to the powers of individual corruption.” Married.] William de Croix, esq. of Windsor, to Mary, daughter of the late Nathaniel Green,esq. consul at Nice.—Mr. John Tyrrel, of Abingdon, to Miss Elizabeth Cook, of Beeden.—The Rev. W. B. Wroth, of Edlesborough, to Miss Anna Barker, Barker, of North Church. — William Mount, esq. of Wasing-place, to Miss Charlotte Talbot, of Guiting. Died.] At Windsor, 68, Lieut. Col. Sir William Osborne Hamilton, many years governor of Heligoland. \ At Abingdom, 67, Mrs. Pickman. At West Hanney, Mr. Henry Dunsdon. HERT FORD AND BEI) FORD SHIRE. Married.] J. M. Carter, esq. of Hertford, to Miss Sarah Price, of Great Munden.--And Edward Lewis, of Pigott'shill, to Miss Eleanor Price.—The Rev. R. G. Baker, of Bayford. Bury, to Miss Emma Franks, of Beech-hill. — John Cowell, esq. to Miss Mary Grove, of Baldock. Died J At Baldock, 20, Miss Ann Simpson.—In his 65th year, the Rev. David Jenks, rector of Aldbury.—At Shepford, Mrs. Gage, deservedly regretted.—At Barley, 48, Mr. John Burrowes. Captain William Ince, third son of Jas. Piggott Ince, esq. of Ramsgate. To deplore the loss of a relative or friend is a task which few have escaped, but the regret which such an infliction entails receives a severe aggravation when the blow falls unexpectedly, and the tenderest ties, to which every circumstance had promised permanence, are in a moment destroyed. Captain Ince belonged to the 38th regiment, a corps, whoso services it would be superfluous to name, were it not to tell how far he had participated in its career; and the friend, who now details that participation, ventures to do so from a conviction that the progress of merit, however humble its rank, is seldom passed over with impatience or perused with indifference. In 1808 Captain Ince accompanied the regiment to Portugal, and was immediately engaged in the battle of Roleia. After serving through the campaign under Sir John Moore, which terminated with the battle of Corunna, he returned to England, and very shortly afterwards accompanied his regiment on the ill-fated expedition to Walcheren, where his constitution was impaired by the lamentable pestilence of the country, in a manner from which he never entirely recovered. Having been subsequently sent to Cork, the 38th, in 1812, was again ordered to embark for the Peninsula, and, advancing by rapid marches, immediately on its landing, joined the Duke of Wellington's army on the night before the memorable battle of Salamanca, in which Captain Ince was wounded. At Villa Moreal, on the retreat from Burgos, at the pass of Osmar, and in the battle of Vittoria, he was also engaged with his detachment. The conduct of the 38th regiment in the two sanguinary assaults, which terminated the siege of St.Sebastian, it is well known, was of the most gallant description; Captain Ince, participating

91 in it throughout, was one of the officers who entered the breach when the fortress was captured, and was immediately afterwards promoted to a company. Having subsequently joined the column under Sir John Hope, (afterwards Lord Niddry, and now Lord Hopetown,) Captain Ince was engaged at the crossing of the Bidassoa ; the three actions of the 9th, 10th, and 11th of December, 1813; and, finally, at the siege of Bayonne, on the raising of which at the peace, he returned with his regiment to England; and, in 1316, imarried the only daughter of Wilam Whittington, esq. of Broadwater, near Stevenage, Herts.; his death, which was awfully sndden, was occasioned by an effusion of blood on the brain, while at the residence of his father-in-law ; his widow survives, with one child, and the expectation of shortly giving birth to a second. In Captain Ince were united many of the best qualities of a soldier, a gentleman, a friend, and a companion: the esteem which such qualitics create among the ordinary connexions of society, he enjoyed; and by them, deservediy is his memory respected. In the closer relations of life, his death has inflicted a shock which will long be remembered, and a loss which, in many respects, can never be repaired. No RTH A M PTO NS #1 in E.

CAMBR II) G E AND HUNTINGI) () NSIf I R. E. The contest ented at Cambrid e in favour of Generals Finch and \}anners, who polled 76, and \fr. Adeane 56. The generals were obliged to beat their retreat through an obscure street,_-lossed, booted, and pelted by the populace, who followed them to their inn, and then demolished the windows, &c. An opposition to the ministerial candidates sprung up in Capt. Wells, for the county of Huntingdom. After Lord F Montague and Mr. W. H. Fellowes wers nonlinated, Mr. Hammond, of FenstanP. 2 toa ton, expressed himself indignant at the enslaved state of the county, which was fast becoming the patrimony of one or two noble families; and proposed Capt. Wells, in order that the independent yeomanry might be afforded an opportunity of expressing their disapprobation of the measures of the ministry. This being duly scconded, the sheriff declared the shew of hands to be in favor of Capt. Wells and Lord F. Montague: Mr. Fellowes demanded a poll.

At a meeting of the freeholders of Suffolk, lately held at Stowmarket, Sir Wm. Rowley, bart. and T. S. Gooch, esq. were put in nomination, and re-elected members for the county. An advertisement appeared in a late London paper, signed by six freemen of Ipswich, on behalf of 200 others, stating their determination to support two independent gentlemen who might offer themselves as candidates for the representation of that borough. In consequence, H. Baring, esq. of the firm of Sir F. Baring and Co. arrived at that place; and immediately addressed the electors, soliciting their votes in behalf of himself and Capt. Sir Wm. Bolton, R.N. This unexpected opposition to Messrs. Crickett and Newton led to one of the severest contests between the blues and yellows ever remembered at Ipswich. On a shew of hands there appeared a small majority in favour of Messrs. Crickitt and Newton, when a poll was called for by Mr. Baring, (whose colleague had not arrived,) which immediately commenced, and was carried on with great spirit by both parties. At the final close, on the sixth day, the mum. bers appeared as follows:– Crickitt . . . . . . . . . . . . 428 Newton . . . . . . . . . . . . 422 Baring • * * * * * * * - - - - - - 389 Bolton . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 362 Mr. Baring intimated his determination to petition against the election of Messrs.

From the length of time since the canvassing for this county commenced, from the excess of party spirit with which it had been carried on, and from the great conflicting interests opposed to each other, it may be ranked among the most violent contests in the kingdom. Bradford, Trowbridge, Westbury, and almost every town in the county, have presented scenes of tumult and confusion. The following statement of the poll is another proof that the number of plumpers is no testimony either of popular favour or of superior strength ; such votes arise fiequently out of adventitious circumstances;

The late contest for the borough of Bridgwater has afforded a striking instance of what may be dome by enlightening the people on the subject of their rights, and by acting upon and adhering to truly constitutional and honourable principles. Mr. Mogg RIDGE, by frequent, emergetic, and truly constitutional, appeals to the understandings of the people, succeeded in exciting and maintaining such enthusiastic attachment to himself, and to the cause of constitutional freedom, that, but for the repetition of the foul practices which cansed the late Lord Melcombe (himself not umpractised in the baneful arts of corruption,) to exclaim against “the venal wretches of Bridgwater,” Mr. Moggridge, and probably his friend and fellow-candidate Mr. Parkins, must have been returned, notwithstanding, from circumstances beyond their controul, the old members had several days the start of them in their canvass. As it was, Mr. M. polled 164 votes, and had six in reserve, whilst Lord Powlett's representative (pol. ling not only his very last man, but several doubtful votes,) could muster only 185.
