Those persons desirous of bettering their condition and Of becoming "Imlepcndcnt Labourers , " hy entering the "Productive-labour" Market , will do weH to read "A Practical Work on Small Farms , " by Feabgcs O'Coxxob , Esq . It contains much useful information , invaluable to the parties for whom it was written ; and Old Farmers will Snd many useful lessons in the new system of husbaudry , which tliey have jet tolearn . The work displays great practical knowledge , and is written so that any one whoreads may understand . J £ r . O'Connor seems not to Lave used either the old or ' new nomenclature' in this work ; he has not buried his meaning in chemical technicalities , which -very few understand , hut which most writers oa agriculture seem so desirous of using . Perhaps they do not understand the practice of Farming so well as the theory ; and , therefore , mystify that whicli they cannot explain , by some long chemical term , which the plain reader may pass over as a "hard word , " hard _topronoxmce , and harder to understand when it is pronounced . The reader will find that Mr . O'Connor has avoided all tbose hard names , and suited the language to the toiling labourer , whose coUege is generaUy the workshop , or , at best , the Sunday School .

EXTRAORDINARY ! NEW CASES !! Attesting that there is health for all . HOLLOWAY'S PILLS . An astonishing cure ofa confirmed Liver Complaint . MRS . MARY SANDFORD , residing in Leather-lane , Holborn , London , had been labouring under the efiects of a diseased Liver , which produced Indigestion , Sick Head Ache , Dimness of Sight , Lowness of Spirits , Irritability of Temper , Drowsiness , Occasional Swellings ofthe Body and Legs , with General Weakness and Debility . She attended the Hospitals , at different periods , for about three years , but she only got worse instead of better , and her recovery at last appeared quite hopeless ; but notwithstanding the very bad state of her health , she was , in about two months , restored to perfect health by the means alone of this all-powerful and efficacious Medicine—Holloway ' s Pills .

James Richards , Esq ., a Gentleman in the East India Company ' 6 Service , and who had resided for the last Seventeen Years in different parts of . India , where his coufitimtion had become much impaired from the influence of the climate , and the injurious effects of powerful and frequent doses of that dangerous mineral , Calomel , which , together , made such inroads on his constitution as to oblige him to return home to England , and on his arrival he placed himself for some time under the care of a Medical Practitioner , but received no benefit from that gentleman ' s treatment . He wa 9 then advised by a friend ( who had tried this medicine ) to go through a proper course of Holloway ' s Pills , which he did , and in about Four Months his formerly shattered frame was so completely invigorated as to enable him to prepare himself again for his immediate return to India , whither he will embark early in the coming Spring of next year , 1845 .

" The variouB formB of Bodily and mental weakness , incapacity , suffering , and disease , faithfully delineated in this cautiously written and practical work , are almost unknown , generaUy misunderstood , and . treated on principles correspondingly ' erroneous and superficial , by the present race of medical practitioners . Hence the necessity for the publication of a timely safeguard , a sUentyct friendly monitor ; or , where debility has made threatening inroads , the means of escape and the certainty of restoration . The evils to which the book adverts are extensive and identical in their secret and hidden origin , find there are none to whom , as parents , guardians , heads of famUles , and especially of public schools , is confided the care of young people , who ought to remain for a moment devoid of that information and those salutary cautions this work is intended to convey . Not only are the most delicate forms of generative debility neglected by the fomily physician , hut they require for their safe management theexclusive study ofa life entirely abstracted from tbie routine of general practice , and ( as in other departments of the profession ) attentively concentrated in the daily and long-continued observation requisite forthe correct treatment of sexual infirmities . : "If we consider the topics touched upon either in a moral or social view , we find the interests and welfare of mankind seriously involved . The effects of licentious , indiscriminate , and secret indulgence in certain practices , are described with an accuracy and force which display at once profound reflection and extensive practical experience . "—37 k Planet . " The best of all friend * is the _Pi-o / _eMioHul . Friend , and in no shape can he be consulted with greater safety and secrecy than in' Lucas on Manly Vigour . ' Tho initiation into vicious Indulgence—its progress—its results in both sexes , are given with faithful , bnt alas ! for human nature , with afflicting truth . However , the authors have not exposed the evil without affording a remedy . It shows how' Manly Vigour' temporarily impaired , and mental and physical emasculation , produced by uncontrolled indulgence of the passions , can be restored ; how the sufferer , who has pined in anguish from the consequences of early indiscretion—afraid almost to encounter his feUowman , can regain the vigour of health and moral courage . The work is written in a concise and perspicuous style , displaying how often fond parents are deceived by the outward physical appearance of their youthful offspring ; how the attenuation of the frame , palpitation of the heart , derangement of the nervous system , cough , indigestion , and a train of symptoms indicative of consumption or general decay , are often ascribed to wrong causes ; and instead of being the natural results of congenital debility or disease , are tlie consequences of an alluring and pernicious practice , alike destructive to the mind and body . "Bell's New WeeUy Messenger . " Although a newspaper is not the ordinary channel for the expression of opinion upon the merits of a medical work , this remark is open to exception in any instance where the public , aud not the isolated and exclusive members of the profession , are the parties addressed , Upon that which is directed to men indiscriminately , the world will form its own opinion , and will demand that medical works for popular study should be devoid of that mysterious technicaUty in which the science" of medicine has hitherto shrouded its own ignorance . The work before us treats of subjects we _beUevo generaUy , yet very strangely , neglected by the medical attendant , and requiring doubtlessly ( as in operative midwifery and tho surgery of the eye ) an entire devotedness to a deeply important branch of study . The tone of this book is highly moral , and it abounds in well-written , harrowing , yet correct displays of the suffering consequent upon unbridled sensualism . No human being can be the Worse for its perusal ; to multitudes it must prove a warning beacon , a _weU-told appeal to reason , a permanent blessing . It is written in a clear intelligible style , and is evidently thc production of a mind long and practically conversant with the diseases of the most delicate division of the human organization . "—The Magnet . " The security of Happiness in the Marriage State is the chief anxiety of aU ; but many dread entering upon wedded union , through a secret fear of unfitness for tho discharge of matrimonial obligations . This , essay is most particularly addressed to all suffering under a despondency of the character alluded to ; and advice wiU be fouud calculated to cheer the drooping heart , and point the way to renovated health .

Important Discussion On Free Trade At Ro...
IMPORTANT DISCUSSION ON FREE TRADE AT ROTHERHAM . It was lately mentioned in the Star that the visit ofthe ' * League" to Rotberham had been a "great " failure , notwithstanding the Bednctive eloquence of the hon . member for Stockport . In order to " keep appearances , " and if possible prevent the public from getting into thc secret , Mr . Falvey , decidedly the cleverest lecturer of the League , was specially sent for , from the South , to try his hand m removing those obstacles which Mr . Cobden found so very perplexing and obstructive . Application was made for the use of the British School and the Com Exchange for the occasion , but both places were refused : and on Friday placards appeared announcing that Mi * . Falvey woidd deliver two lectures on Friday snd Saturday , in the large room of the Three Cranes Inn . As tho
whole of the procecdmp had been conducted with the greatest secrecy , and the placards not appearing till late m the day , the Chartists were taken by surprise , not having time to make arrangement s for a discussion in delence of their principles if it should become necessary . However , several attended the lecture as a corps of observation . At seven o ' clock Mi * , ralvey commenced , his address , the ro om not being halt full ; he said liis lecture that night would _beontheagi-icultural part of the question , and on the following night on the manufacturing part . Hc then at greath length , gave a history of the various enactments respecting the admission of foreign corn contending that as they had failed in effecting the object theu * promoters had in view , that _ofkeepine up prices to a certain rate , they ought to be repealed Alter the usual denunciation ofthe landlords , which
Important Discussion On Free Trade At Ro...
constitutes a considerable portion of the stock-intrade of the League lecturers , Mr . Falvey _f _^ ed discussion , saying hc was prepared to meet any man on the following evening . _ Mr . _Leasons , a Chartist : " I acceptyour challenge , and will find a man to discuss with you . " Mr lalvey : " Very well ; I shall be happy to _seejim . / Several pewons in the meeting cried out- Who is he ? let us know his name . " Mr . Lessons : lt ia Mr West , of Sheffield ; I dare say Mr . Falvey knows him well . " Mr . Falvey : " 0 yes ; I have met Mr . West several times ; and since Ae is to be my opponent , on second consideration , I will deliver my lecture , and at the close Mr . West may make what remarks he thinks Proper . " On Saturday the Leaguers
wero very _busv in mustering their forces ; and wc have heen credibly informed that Mi * . Badger , jun ., went round to the different factories , requesting the foremen to induce their hands to attend and " put down the Chartists . " Shortly after seven o clock Mr . Maehin was called to the chair , who opened the business by observing that he should act with thc strictest impartiality , and secure for all parties fair play . All he had to request was , that the various speakers would confine themselves to the question , and not indulge in personalities or individual recriminations . Ho then introduced Mr . Falvey , who commenced by observing that last evening he had laid before them the history of the Corn Laws , and , he thoueht , clearly proved that they were unjust in
principle , and that to remove a positive injustice must be a positive good . Those laws were enacted at the point ofthe bayonet , and four years afterwards the bloody massacre of Petcrloo was perpetrated by the bread-taxers on the defenceless thousands who were assembled to petition for tlieir repeal . But we lived now in more enlightened times -, and the _support the League received from all classes of politicians was an earnest that better days were in . store for the under-fed millions . It was most surprising that the greatest opposition came from those who professed to be advocates of freedom . It was difficult to conceive how those who advocated freedom in science and freedom in legislation , should oppose freedom in commerce . Mr . West , who was present that
night to lend a helping hand to tho monopolists , would , no doubt , explain it . Thev tell us that we ought to have no connexion with foreigners ; but what can we do without foreigners ? Mr . Addison , years ago , in the Spectator , had said that there was nothing indigenous to England but the wild plum and the wild apple . All our necessaries , and even the arts and sciences , were of foreign origin -. and yet we are constantly told " stay at home , and never mind the foreign trade . " What was the foreign trade but ah extension of the home trade ? and now are we to judge of the merits of any question but by inductive reasoning ; from known facts . Let these bawlcrs for freedom look at America . There the democrats have elected Polk as President , because he was for
Free Trade . And if we looked back to the eonduet ofthe great leaders of Radicalism in England , Cartwright , and Hunt , and Cobbett , they all opposed the accursed Corn Laws ; hut of late a race of mushroom Radicals , calling themselves Chartists , led on by Feargus O'Connor , have leagued with the monopolists in limiting the supply of food . Lord _Mountcashel said the Corn * Laws were necessary to enable the landlords to pay theirmarriage settlements ; and Mi * . West was there that night to enable them to do so ; The Chartists had made themselves the most contemptible party that ever appeared , __ by their divisions , their bitter hatreds , and denunciations of each other * . and could they believe that a party torn to pieces by faction could effect any change , or induce
any one to place confidence m their movements ? They were powerless , except now and then to offer a puny opposition to tho Leaguo . But even that was i ' _a-jt fading away . Tho Leaguo were a powerful body , * and since their commencement never had a quarrel among themselves . The Northern Star , after living seven years in the country , had removed to the south ; still preserving its name , which was a misnomer . That paper had always endeavoured to make the working classes believe that cheap provisions meant low wages : now he would p ut it to . the working men present , whether , as provisions had lowered in price , their wages had been reduced . ( Several voices , " My wages have been reduced . " ) He would not take isolated cases , but he would take the secse of
the meeting on the subject , Mr . West : " In that case I propose that no person vote on tho question but those who are actual workers and receive wages . " Mr . Falvey assented ; and this had the effect of making the gentlemen keep tlieir hands in their pockets . Mr . Falvey then put the question -. " All who are of opinion that as the prices of provisions fall , wages are reduced , hold up your hands . " The great majority of the meeting held up their hands . Mi * . Falvey : I see you do not understand my question ; " all who are of opinion that as the price of provisions has fallen this last two years , wages have not been reduced , hold up your hands . " Mr . West protested against that partial way of putting the question . If they are to decide the
question , as to whether wages had been reduced , let them take the last forty years , which would be a failcriterion . Mr . Falvey persisted in putting his motion in his own way ; and after three trials , during wliich hc could only get six persons to vote with him , he gave up the contest in despair . Hc continued : We nave got this fact , that during the last forty years wages have heen reduced ; but we had not Free Trade then ! The reduction was under a system of monopoly ; under Mr . West ' s favourite system of protection . No doubt , bye and bye , that gentleman would tell them Free Trade would reduce wages ; but the real cause was the ; Corn Laws , which crippled commerce , and would not allow them to exchange the produce of labour for what foreigners could give us
rn return . With an increasing population , u the people were not employed on the land , how could we Und employment for them , except by extending our markets ; and if by doing so wages should come down , let the price of food come down to the price of labour : and as the higher and middle classes had at present a sufficiency of bread , let but an increased supply come into the country , nnd those who now live on potatoes would get their fair share . The rent of the landowners must come down ; for Mr . _M'Gi-egor had proved that the corn monopoly added millions yearly to their income . After some further remarks on machinery , Mr . Falvey sat down . The chairman introduced Mr . West , who said , that having been invited to attend the meeting , in consequence of Mr .
ralvey s challenge , he expected that the question to be brought under their consideration would be the merits or demerits of Free Trade ; but he was surprised to find that Mr . Falvey , instead of entering on thc question , had indulged in such gross personal attacks on the Chartists as a bod y , on the Northern Star , on Feargus O'Connor , and on himself . Ho knew that was not Mr . Falvcy ' s usual manner ; and therefore he must attribute it to his ( Mr . West ' s ) appearance ; but whatever the cause , it argued a lack of argument and was an unworthy attempt to excite then * passions , instead of appealing to their judgment and reason : an attempt which he doubted not would be frustrated . But as the attack had been made , he trusted that before he entered on the auestion of
debate , they would allow him briefly to reply to the slanders that had been uttered . Mi * . Falvey Lad insinuated that he ( Mr . West ) was amushroom Radical ; and that he was an advocate for the landlord . This he ( Mr .. Falvey ) knew to he untrue ; for his first appearance as a public speaker , was some three _. months before Mr . Falvey himself ; and for the fifteen years that he had taken part in public affairs , he challenged Mi * . Falvey to show one instance in which he had not advocated tho principles of truth and justice , and struggled , under odium and persecution , on the side of the toiling millions . Mr . Falvey had alluded to the dissensions among some portions of the Chartist hody , in order to throw odium on the principles ofthe Charter . No one _resrettcd their dissensions mom
than he ( Mr . West ) did ; but there had been a separating of thc chaff from the wheat ; and those who went ' from the Chartists only did so because they were not of them . The Chartists were now a firm and united body ; and though they were sneered at aa powerlessexcept for mischief—they were feared hy all nostrummongers , who would not dare te meet the pubiie lest the " disunited Chartists" should appear , and scatter to the winds the humbug and delusion with which they sought to deceive the people . Mr . O'Connor had been charged with inconsistency , because he voted against an unconditional Repeal of the Corn Laws when in the House of Commons ; and still continued to maintain thc same ground . That specimen of logic he would leave Mr . Falvey to explain as best he could . But
the crowning charge was thc removal ofthe NortUni Star to London ! That was not to be easDy forgiven Monstrous impudence tliat the organ of _Labourshouid take its stand , side by side , with the organ of the League—and thc prostitute press-gang of both Whic and Tory ! But there it was ! That was a great fact ; and , however bitter the potion , swallow it the League must ; and , aathey said in Yorkshire—grin and abide . ( Tremendous cheering . ) When the League removed the Anti-Broad Tax Circular to London , no one brought that as a charge against them . But they changed its name , and the Star had not been ehanged . Ah , there was tho rub ! They hated the namo not less than they hated the principles it advocated That-name had been a terror to evildoers . That name had been the hope of the _od-EL " _* _™ _W . _- _* ons . . It had cost the Government hundreds of
thousands of pounds to put ownone Northern Star ; and no doubt but many of Mr . _Falvey employers would gladly subscribe their _tlwusandsif they could sink the existing Star beneath the _political-noriaon : but while it contimuSl tie fearless advocate ofthe rights of man , _TwoZd blaze with redoubled splendour , illuminating the minds of tlio toiling masses , and cheering them on en * mighty _and-glorious struggle for their country ' s and Labour ' s emancipation . ( Loud cheers ) And now , continued Mr . West , let us _exi _Jne Seof the statements _wh-ciatr . Falvey intended as _nvZmeZ _rfZ _?! ° _ny iml * ' H ° >» yB that all fn _^ s _Lngland owe their existence to foreigners except tho _cRab-applu and the sloe ; that the arts and sciences were cradled abroad ; and that we arc yearly importing fresh additions . Well , that admission was of some worth It used to be the cry , that foreigners nad not skill and ingenuity to compete with _Englishman ; that we wore destined by God to be the

" workshop of the world . " If foreigners were formerly so capable of inventing and improving , are we to suppose that the present race has degenerated fromffif fathers , or tLt all the bra ns have taken flight from those lands , and settled in the _^ craniums ot Endishmen , but more particularly in those ot tne Anti-Corn taw League / The Chartists _^ always contended that foroigners had the capability to manufacture for themselves , and would always do so when the y deemed it advantageous to themselves , iney were doing so now ; and the only chance the manufacturers of this country have of competing mth them is by underselling them ; and he ( Mr . West ) was there that night to prove , that that could not be effected but by reducing wages . ( Cheers . ) iiiere wcre three great elements in _production-thc raw mnWi . il -. tho catrital invested in machinery , _& c . ; _
and the wages of labour ; and it was only in one or more of thole that a " chcapenmg" could be effected , so as to ena ble us successfully to compete with loreicners . In the raw material foreigners had tlie decided advantage , for thoy wcre the growers of it ; of silk , cotton , and » great portion , of the wool . 1 hey had it on the spot , whilst we had to import it , and pay the cost of freight and carriage ; so that no cheapening could be effected in that department . In the investment of capital in machinery , what little advantage we formerly had , had been lost by the free exportation of machinery ; but even if it were not so , foreigners have the advantage in their water power , the cheapest of all motive power . The only other Stem r emaining was the wages of labour ; and be _chnHemred Mr . Falvey , - or- any other man in
bngland , to show how a " cheapening , " so as to enaoie us to undersell foreigners , could be effected but by a reduction of wages . But Mr . Falvey says , " it wages must come down , bring down the price ol food to the price Of labour . " Will the adoption of Free Trade principles do that ? No I and Mr . Falvey knew it . All the great authorities of thc League—Mr . Greg , Mr Cobden , Mr . Whitstone , Mr . Acland , cum multis aliis—all agreed that the effect of Corn Law repeal would be , " not so much to cheapen provisions at home , as to raise them abroad . " That humanity was quite of the Alderman Brooks school . It is tyrannical , anti-christian , and murderous to tax the bread of the people of this country , but quite a matter of " nohcy" to make it dear to the foreigners . '
Was ever humbug so barefaced as that ? Mr . Falvey said the vent of the landlord must come down , and he quoted Mr . _M'Gregor as an authority to prove that the corn monopoly adds millions to their income . But what said Mr . M'Gregor hi his evidence before the Import Duties Committee , when _jasked if a repeal of the Corn Laws would cause rents to fall ? He said no ; on the _contrary , I think the rents of land would greatly increase _. Pretty way that of bringing . down , rents , if Mr . M'Gregor was to be taken as an authority . Mr . Falvey talked a great deal about wages , and said , though wages ha d fallen during the last forty years , that was under a system of protection , and not under Free Trade , because we have not had it . Hc ( Mr .
West ) denied that the working classes had protection . " Itwas for thc want of it that they were bound hand and foot , and laid prostrate at the feet of blood-cemented capital . And though they had not what Mr . Falvey called Free Trade , they had some of its anticipated benefits in yearly extensions of commerce ; and what did those prove but that each year we were impoverishing ourown country to bestowthebenenefits onthe foreigner ; reducing the wages of labour to cheapen tho cost price of the article exported ; giving increased quantities of export for . decreased amount of , value in return ; destroying the home market , and only conferring benefits on the rich consumersthe fuiidholders , pensioners , and tax eaters of various kinds . And this was the system Mr . Falvey wished to extend , and to persuade them would be a great benefit . ( "No , no , " from Mr . Falvey . ) Well , if it
were not so , perhaps Mr . Falvey would tell them of some of the benefits to be derived from Free Trade ; for as yet he had most guardedly avoided the subject . Mr . Falvey said wages were not regulated by the price of food , and that the terms cheap and dear were merely nominal ; the ability to purchase being the real question . In that he perfectly agreed ; but it is a most complete destruction of the clap-trap cry of thc League— _"Jeheap bread ! " As a proof , in 1801 , when wheat was 115 s . lid . per quarter , a weaver of a six quarter cambric , sixty reed , Bolton-court , could purchase with a week ' s wages at that price , 132 pints of wheat ; whilst in the last six years , with wheat under 60 s . per quarter , with his week ' s wages for the same description of work , he could only purchase sixteen pints of wheat ! Mr . Falvey ; Where is your authority for that statement ?
Mr . West handed him Mr . Hobson ' s Poor Man ' s Companion , and pointed out the table , "The Free Traders' Looking-glass . " Mr . Falvey : 1 dispute t 7 iat authority ; it is a table without a name to it , and might be fabricated by Mr . West or his friend Mr . Hobson , to suit their own particular purpose . , Mr . West : The table is compiled from Mr . Marshall ' s celebrated statistical work , the Digest of Public Documents . ' ; Mr . Falvey : 1 dispute Mr . Marshall as an authority ; he is not considered one . Mr . West : It was the first time that hc had heard tho authority of that man disputed ; but Mr . Falvey said lie was no authority , and therefore all the world must believe so . But he would lay before the
meeting the claims of Mr . Marshall to authority , and then tliey would be able to judge between Mm and Mr . Falvey . Mr . Marshall was engaged by the Whig Government to make a compilation of TOO volumes of journals and reports on the Trade , Commerce , and Finance of the country , which had been presented to both Houses of Parliament . That Herculean task took him two years of arduous and unremitting labour to accomplish . As a reward for his services , he was to have had the place which Mr . Porter now fills , as the head ofthe statistical department of the Board of Trade ; but it waa found that Mr . Marshall was too honest , and in some of his notes to the tables he placed the Free Trade policy in its true light , as ruinous and destructive to British interests ; and
therefore he was placed on the shelf , —his work was limited to about 1 , 300 copies ; but of that number , by an unanimous vote ofthe House of Commons , a copy , at two guineas a volume , was purchased for each member . That work , and his blowing up of the scheme of the sinking fund—for which , after six months ' . drilling , lie made Joseph Hume his instrument—will hand his name down to posterity as an authority—and one , too , that will not suffer much by not being " believed in" by the " political prigs" of the school to wliich Mr . Falvey belonged . Mr . Falvey claimed _^ Cartwright , Hunt , and Cobbett , as belonging to his school ; but the world know that those great men and " nobles of nature" were advocates of the principles of the
Charter . The massacre ot Petcrloo was perpetrated on those who met to petition for Universal Suffrage , Vote hy Ballot , and Annual Parliaments , and not , as Mr . Falvey would make you believe , for a repeal of the Corn Laws . Cobbett always contended that , before you could attempt to have Free Trade , there must be an equitable adjustment ofthe debt , and a reduction of the national burdens . The same doctrines the Chartists held at the present day . Those great men were their teachers ; and they could not be considered " mushroom Radicals . " How many of Mr . Falvey ' s school would come forward to advocate tke principles of the men , whose names they wished to Pirate to serve their own selfish purpose ? Mr . Falvey had denounced the landlords : butthc question
_b as not to be decided by such means . Were he ( Mr , West ) inclined to recriminate , he could a tale unfold ofthe robbery , oppression , and absolute murder , perpetrated by the manufacturers and their system a tale , that wonld make even landlords , with all their faults , appear as gods in comparison . Both classes were equally the enemies of labour ; and whenever its claims came under their consideration , they forgot then * differences and united together for the purpose of keeping the poor man down . In conclusion , he called on Mi * . Falvey to point out somo of the benefits that would arise from the adoption of principles of Free Trade . Mr . West sat down amid enthusiastic applause . Air . Falvey : Mr . West has told you that I insinuated he was an advocate for thc landlords . I now
distinctly charge him with it ; for at Blackburn he moved and carried a resolution in favour of monopoly , and never mentioned the Charter . He finds fault with me for bringing the conduct of the Chartists forward . I had a right to do so , as a Chartist was my opponent . Mr . West appealed to the chairman as to what was the subject for discussion ? The Chairman : The question is , " Whether Free Trade would be beneficial or injurious , " and my opinion is that Mr . Falvey should not introduce extraneous matter Mr . Falvey : I ani asked to point out the benefits ot tree Ivade . Cheap bread , and plenty of it , is a good thing ; and good wages is a good thing . Mr . West has talked a good deal about liis "three elements , ' and challenges me to prove how we can undersell foreigners but by falling upon wages . There arc other ways . We pay twenty sliillincs a ouartor
on wheat ; if that was abolished it would be absorbed m wages and profits , and would enable us to undersell them . It was the same with sugar and other & " Switzerland they had Free Trade , and they found it to work well . In America the democracy were in favour of it , as proved by thc election of Mr . Polk a fact Mr . West had not noticed . The duty on wool had been abolished , but thc price had risen . These are facts ; let Mr . West reply to them . Air . West had not tol d them any thing of the past ; he jumped into futurity . The Corn Laws had not kept up wages ; and if it were not for the late abundant harvests trade would be in a wretched condition . He thanked them for the attention they had paid to Mr . West and himself ; and it would not be long before he would visit them again , when he would enter into the question more Mly than he had done .
Mr . West . Mr . Falvey has charged me with being an advocate of thc landlords , because in thc discussion at Blackburn I did not introduce the Charter ; but he has not the honesty to toll you that he positively refused to hold thc discussion if I mentioned the Charter ! So much for his
Important Discussion On Free Trade At Ro...
honesty . Mr . Falvey has told you that if the dututt on corn and sugar were repealed , wc could then uiun dersell the foreigners , because the raw material woulull be cheaper . Does he mean , that if we import _coi-oirand sugar , that it will change into cottons , woolloiujius and Bilks to be exported ? For that is his _arguments Mr . ( Falvey said , they had Free Trade in SwitzerlandaiJl but he forgot to tell you that they had Universal _Sujuil frage there also . ( Cheers . ) Mr . Falvey had referre < re « to the election of Mr . Polk in America ; but he _forbrcot to tell you thatit was the " Agrarian League " -. ' -.. the Chartists of America , who arc struggling to maktkji the public lands public property—that secured _hjhij election ; a party who cared little about the _fudgwe , _' _ern _iP ., nAn Thov _u-m'A t . nlcl tlint . tlw . lt « , _„ ! . _ tit- _p-o lvev has told vou that if the di
duty on wool had been repealed , without depreciatioioit in price ; and tfiat , therefore Free Trade must be t B eood thing : but Alderman Bateson , ot Leeds , ha _<^ _Published a state ofthe transfer of our woollen _trades to thc continent . In 1824 , the export duty on _BrM . tisli wool was removed , and from 1824 to im , _thdte exports had increased from notlimg in 1824 , _totoi 4 810 887 lbs ., in 1840 ; while thc exports of Britishshi woollen cloths , of all sorts , had decreased frommi 567 317 pieces in 1824 , to 258 , 962 , iu IS _10 ; and inim Vervier and Aix-La-Chapellc , where we _exported most of our wool , in 1840 they manufactured 7 C _. 28 S 3 ! pieces more than England exported to all _theiei world . Let Mr . Falvey note those facts . we _, were told the Corn Laws produced all the evil _mia the country ; but wouldMr . Falveycxplair . one _faeU-, that under the Com Laws we had had trade and gooM
trade cheap provisions and dear provisions , _ingher'r wages and lower wages . One cause could not pro-oduce these opposite effects . But an abundant _harvestst had made trade good—a proof , that ii we cultivated _^ . our own soil we need not depend on the caprice _ofif foreigners . As Mr . Falvey had promised to visitit them _anain . he would assure them that when he didd come he would findhim ( Mr . West ) there also . ( Loudd cheers ) They had heard the arguments on bothh sides , as far as time would permit , and when he ( Mr _.-West ) next came among them , after they hadil calmly reflected on what they had heard , he WOUldd ask for their opinion . He had to thank them for thee fair play they had shewn , and the attention witbh which they had heard him . —A vote of thanks wass carried by acclam ation to the chairman , and thugs ended one ofthe most important meetings ever held ! in Rotherham .

i BRADFORD . i Working Men ' s Movements . — -Perhaps _frere ii not a town in England where the operatives havo a better knowledge of the cause of their degradation than they have here ; but , by _somemcac _? it is found hard to create as good an organizajtion among them as ought to exist ; and although ¦ Chartism ia the darling tneme of the masses , scarcelj ; one in fifty are enrolled members . What is tlie / cause ? The working men are disgusted with the . trickery , shuffling , and empty-headed vanity of some would-be leaders , who remained in their ranks _rjust long enough to create discord and division by _Endless quarrels and bickerings . At length , finding
they could not succeed in foisting themselves aud their little nostrums on the people , they vented thoir spleen on what they term the _O'Connoritcs , and set up as Free Traders . Now that thc intellectuals are gone , the organization improves weekly . Lectures are delivered at _Buttevwovth's Buildings on Sunday evenings , which begin to draw public attention , and tend to add to the numbers of the enrolled ; and it is shortly intended to engage one ofthe public hahs for the use of tho Chartist body . Etzler's " TnopicAL Emigration Societt" has gained a large accession to its numbers here , over one hundred shares being taken np , the main part by Chartists . The first instalment , amounting to £ 60 . was paid up this week .
TO THE _CHAnilSTS OP _NOB-TH LANCASHIRE . Brother Chartists—The time draws nigh when our esteemed friend and fellow-worker in the cause of democracy , Thomas Tattersall , will be released from that dungeon which for two long years has cutonibed his body and ' separated him from those who are straggling for the principles which the dungeon ' s g loom will not have estranged him from . No , brethren , we venture to predict that he will return from his dungeon with a stronger impress on liis mind in favour of the cause he so patriotically embarked in , and lor which he has suffered . Believing that those principles are still held dear by you , and believing that you have a lively hope ot their realization , —a hope that the unhallowed touch of tyranny cannot extinguish , —we venture to solicit your aid in providing a suitable testimonial of OUT aflections towards the persecuted sufferer , not only for supplying his immediate wants , but to prevent
the opposers of our glorious principles , those wlio fatten and luxuriate in the sunshine of class leg ' latum , —from reproaching us with ingratitude w indifference to those who have suffered for _advocate the cause we arc mutually embarked in . To attain the above desirable object , a " Testimonial Committee" has been formed in Burnley , who are collecting subscriptions for thc purpose of providing Mr . Tattersall with a good suit of clothes , xW otherwise to give to him marks of esteem ; and te lieving that the Chartists of North Lancashire _wl not be backward in aiding the good work , we have thought proper thus to call your attention to it . And we beg further to state that the time being short , arc desirous that parties collecting subscription 5 should Jose no time in transmitting tlie same to tW Secretary , together with the names of thc subscriber 8 ' that tho same may be laid before Mr . Tattersall _«* his inspection as early as possible after his release , which will be on the morning of the loth February *
