_Vthoueli the number of persons employed on the p public works are greatly increased since the return _nnub ' . i _* -hed four or five weeks since , and although _ddrainiut-and other productive works are beginning t to afford a new and far better source of eniployment , * _rtii ! t ' ie destitution has so radi . lly extended , and th e i demands for more employment are so urcent , that t the . Commissioners of the Board of Works find it c _excealingly difficult—nay , impossible—to draw rff t the labourers from the road-work . Some of the I public works bad been stopped in the hope that the 1 ; labourers mig ht be absorbed upon the adjoining _« st tales in thorough drainage or general farming work ; t but the Commissioners were constrained to resntae a a portion of those works , or commence new ones , as t the only alternative to preserve the destitute labourc ers from _t-tarvation .

Tue Flores Expedition. The Thames Police...
TUE FLORES EXPEDITION . The Thames police-court was on Tuesday the theatre of one ofthe most exciting _senses which has ever teen enacted in it since the memorable caseo Captain Johnstone . Colonel Richard Wright , Consul-general for the state ofthe Equadore , and alleged to be the head of an expedition which was said to be lately fitting out from this country for South America , wa » charged , at the instance of Inspector Evans of tht Thames police , with a violation ofthe 2 ud section of the _Foreign Enlistment Act , _59 ih of George III ., c ap . 69 . Air . Ballantine . the barrister , and Mr . Shaw , of _Fiirnival _' s-inn , attended for the defence , whilst Mr . Pothury , from tbe offioe ofthe solicitor to the Customs _, conducted the prosecution .
The first witness called was Mr . Harvey Garnett Phi pps Tuekett . Ue described himself ns having b ? en some time since a captain in the 11 th Hussars . He had retired from that service , and about the month of October last , hearing of an intended expedition to the Equadore , he called upon Colonel Wright , to whom he handed a letter , which that gentleman havin g read , he asked witness whether he was desirous of joining in the enterprise ? To which he .-Tuekett , replied that it would all _defend upon the rank _vvhii-h was offered him : to which the defendant rep lied that he should receive the appointment of Lieutenant ColoneL Witness asked what was
to be the pay ; to which Colonel Wright replied ¦ £ 20 a month . Witness observed that was very small , but the Colonel told bim that at Quito all the articles of consumption were exceeding ly chea p , and that a few shillings would bo sufficient to provide for a large _fauiiiy . Witness asked what part of South America it was intended to proceed to ; to which the defennant replied—to the Equador . Witness ask * ! if there was to be any advance ; to which Colonel Wright replied there would be an advance of two months . Wilness observed that that was too little to defray preliminary expenses . Colonel _Wright _replied that tbat was the sum appropriated for the purpose bv the commissioners .
Mr . Yardley : What did you understand by the commissioners f—Witness : I understood him to refer to some Spanish commission which had charge of the affair . Mr . Yardley : Under what government did you suppose you were to act ?—Witness : I understood under the Spanish , and not nneler the English govirnment . Colonel Wright told me that I should like General Flores very much ; that he ( the general ) had been in a hundred actions , in all of which lie had proved victorious , I asked the nature of the _cumm-wid 1 should have , -when tbe colonel told me that 1 , 200 men had been raised in Ireland , aud that they should be under my commands , as I was the only person holding the rank of lieutenantco onel going out upon the expedition . Mr . Yardley : Do you know General Fiores ? Witness : 1 understand he is by birth a _Venezeulan . and ex-pres : deut ofthe E quador .
To Mr . Potbury : I inquired as to the uniform , and Colonel _Wri-iht told me it was to be similar to the English Light Infantry uniform , w i t h bri g ht yellow facincs , which was the Spanish national colour , _cjc-ked hats , and p lume s , and epaulettes of a Spanish fashion . At a later period Colonel Wright directed me * to go to Mr . Gurney , a tailor in St . James _' s-street , who had buttous cast purposel y for tiie service . I procured _s-ime _, and found they had the word Equador _marked upon them , together with the marks G . Del Fres . Here one of t he but t ons was handed in by Mr . P o _tbury , upon which the magistrate asked the witness what he understood tho- _* e marks to mean f Witness : I understood them to be the title ofthe troop 1 was to command , viz ., "The President ' s Guard . "
On the 29 th of October 1 spoke to Colonel Wright as to the advance which was to be mace , and ou tho next day he gave mc a cheque for £ 50 . bein g two months and a _ha'fs pay which was cashed at the house of G yn , _HaHita - _^ and Co ., after a little hesitation . Witness then proceeded to procure an outfit . Mr . Yardley : Was anything said about _qgms or eq u i _pments ?—Yes , we talked on the subject several times , at . d Colonel Wright said that au order had been sent oKt of rockets , 50 p ound e rs , and 40 , 000 Bland of arms . The witness then proceeded to state that to avoid all military appearances the men were ranked under the following heads : —Overseers foremen , labourers , and youths . The overseers were to receive each . £ 1 bounty on entering , the foremen 17 s . C , the labourers 15 * ., and the youths 10 s . Cd .
1 proceeded on board the Glenelg on the 20 th of December , where I _f-uitd 220 men ; they were in a dreadful stato of destitution and making a tremendous , uproar . I promved them , on my honour , relying on Colonel Wright ' s word , that they should have _m-iuey next day , and according to my instructions from the Colonel they were divided into watches , and in erery ri 5 i > ect treate I as soldiers , and regularly _padded as such . On the loth of December , by tlio order ofthe officer * of Customs I quitted the Glene _;« _r , and on t'ie 10 th 1 called upon C . lonel Wright Witt the officers under my command , a ud h a ving
to a him how we bad been compelled to leave , asked wii . it were his further orders ? lie rep li e d , we were I * fleetly free t « to where we pleased , as lie bad no _f-it-taer occasion for our services . 1 replied that the officers were without money , had beeu put to great e . \ ,. i _.-ii-. _"i * iu thc purchase of uniforms , and that it w ..:: ; _. i wi _ni' _-st _unju- 't to dismiss them _without some pr . _v-si-n .

Ballantine pnt in two documents , the one an answer to some newspaper paragrap hs , the other a petition addressed to the Lore ' s of the Treasury ; m both documents the
partivs on board the Glenelg , professed tobe « _emigrant-un ' . be strictest sense of the word , aid sent _for-h their anxious desire to be allowed to proceed on their _vovage . Cap tain Tuekett , en being close _q-iestioaed , admitted that he had been a party to tue getting up of both document * , though he knew the statements contained in them to be false . Mr . Ballantine strongly commented on theconduet of tha witness , and claimed the liberation of his client . The magistrate , however , decided aa remanding the ease , _calling on the defendant to put in bail , himself in £ 400 , and two sureties ef £ 200 each . The securities were immediately entered iu » , and the case waa _rejundedforaweek .

Monday. Marlborough-Street.—B»Dtai Assau...
MONDAY . MARLBOROUGH-STREET . —B » _dtai Assault bt * . _Hc-band . — Harry Thomas , music publisher , Ho . 29 , Rathbone-place , was summoned before Mr . Hardwick for having beaten and _otherwise ill-treated his wife , Julia Thomas . The complainant , a young woman of mild _mnnne-rs and prepossessing appearance , with a tremen . dous black eye , stated that the continued ill-usage she received at the hands of her husband , had at la » t induced her to seek for a separation . As the readiest means of effecting this object , she had , at the suggestion ofh-r friends , taken out an assault warrant against her hushand , although she had ne wish te punish him for the personal injuries he had inflicted on her . Slit had three children , thc eldest six years of oge , the youngest a year and nine months . It was her wish to have an allowance from her husband in order to assist ia keeping the children , which she earnestly desired to have charge
of . Mr . Hardwick asked the husband , a young man , whether ho would listen to the proposal of his wife t Husband—I ' m come here to answer a charge of assault . Mr . Hardwick—Who gave jour wife that black eye ! Husband ( in a surly tone )—Why , I did . Mr » Hardwick —What for « Husband—Oh , I could say if 1 chose , but I _elon't choose . Wife—1 do not make any complaint agaiust my husband for the assault . Blows from him have been too customary for me to think anything further of them than tho disgraceful marks they leave . If blows were all 1 bad to complain of I should never hara appeared in ihis Court . It is his shocking language to me that wounds me far more deeply . It may be presumption in me to say it , but 1 have been a good wife to him and a good mother to his children . Let him , if he can , say one word against me . Mr Hardwick—You hear what jour wife says . Bo you mean to let hrr hara the children and to make her a reasonable allowance fer
their support t Husbtnd—I come her about an assault , and don ' t intend to say anything about what I mean to do with the children , except not to let my wife have them . I ara able to maintain them . Wife—If my husband will only let me have my children I will take them withont any allowance at all , I have worked before and I can work again to keep my children . Husband—I sha ' _ntgire up the children . You may go away if jou like , but you shall not have the children . I shall put them out to nurse somewhere . Wife—I hope your worship will older my children to be given up to me , for ( bursting into tears ) , who can take care of them or look after them like a mother . Mr . Hardwick—Your wife wishes to part from you on account of your continued illtreatment . She is justified in refusing to live witb you on those ( -rounds . If , therefore , you do not come to
some terms with her , I shall certainly put the law in force . Hasband—Oh , I know all about tbat . I ' m prepared for anything the law can do . It can't mak « me give ap my children . Mr . Hardwick—But the law can compel you to restrain jour brutal temper ; and I will take care that its power is exercised . Look at that young woman ' s face , and say whether the unmanly brutality you have exercised on her can admit of excuse . Ifvoudonotgiveupthe children and make terms with your wife , I will fine yon as far as the law will allow for the assault . Husband—I sha ' nt give up the children . Mr . Hardwick—At all events , the youngest being an infant must not be separated from the wife , I fine you £ 5 , or two months imprisonment for the assault , and if ,
after yan come out of prison , you do not support your wife and child , upon an application from the parish , I will send jou again to prison . The husband waa tben removed , and a few minutes afterwards the wife came into Court , and implored , in the most earnest manner , the magistrate to release her husband . Rather than see him sent to prison , she would consent to him keeping all the children . Mr . Hardwick said the wife was treating her husband too well , ne could not , however , allow h > r , from fee-Hags of misplaced affection , to overlook the general misconduct of her husband . He was determined that such a man should not entirely escape irom justice . Thewifa was too good for bim , and that was the fact . The husband ' s brother consented to enter into an arrangement satisfactory to the wife . The husband was then released on paying a trifling fine .
WORSHIP STREET . _—Fatois in aa Omsibus . —Mr . Richard King , a merchant , residing in Warren street , _Fittroy-sqnare , was charged before Mr . Broughton with having committed a violent and unprovoked assault upon Mr . _Jabex Woods , an engineer in Bucklersbury . The complainant , a member of the Society of Friends , affirmed that at nine o'clock on the preceding evening he got into an omnibus at Stoke Newington , where he had been dining with a party of friends , and shortly afterwards tha defendant and a lady entered the vehicle , and seated themselves directly in front of him . In order to sit more commodiously , as tha omaibus was crowded with passengers , he found it necessary to stretch out his legs , at which ihe defendant expressed his dissatisfaction , and desired him to remove them . Witness insisted upon his right to retain them in that position , and tbe defendant
thereupon seized hold of one of his legs , and violently thrust it aside . Feeling indignant at such treatment , witness raised his foot and kicked the defendant , upon which the latter instantly struck him a violent blow upon tbe temple with an umbrella , and caosed a severe wound from which the blood flowed in such profusion as to saturate his dress . One of the passengers immediately wrested the umbrella from the defendant , and on reaching the turnpike where the vehicle stopped , he was given into custody . The complainaut exhibited his handkerchief and various articles of dress he had worn upon the occasion , all of which _wire stained witb blood . Mr . R . Messer , a gentlemen residing in Tbrogmorton Street , and a master builder named Binning , fully corroborated the complainant ' s evidence , and stated that they observed nothing whatever in the conduct or demeanour of the
mtter to justify such an attack on the part of the defendant , who acted quite spontaneously , aad without any complaint having been made by the lady in his company tbat she was subjected to annoyance or iuconve . nience . In answer to the charge , the defendant said , that after taking his seat in the omnibus , his attention was first attracted to the improper conduct of the complainant by an uneasy feeling exhibited by his wife , who was sitting next to him , and who at length told him that the complainant was insulting her by stretching out his leg _* , and pressing her knees in a most offensive manner . Ha accordingly put down his hand , and finding the complainant ' s legs in a position his wife had described , requested him to remove tbem , but he refused to do so , and he was therefore himself compelled to fotce them aside .
The instant he had done so , however , the complainant rai _. td bis feet and dealt him a violent kick in the stomach ; he certainly struck htm with his umbrella , and considered himself perfectly justified in resorting to such a course of retaliation . Mr . Broughton said he had no doubt that the defendant had acted under the erroneous impression that bis wife had been insulted in the manner described , but if he felt himself aggrieved his proper course was to remove the lady aud appeal to tbe conductor , instead of taking the law into his own hands in tbe unwarrantable manner be had done . The assault had been clearly established , and he should order him to pay a penalty of COs ., or in default be committed for one month to the House of Correction . The fine was immediately paid and the defendant liberated _.
THAMES . _—RoBBsat . —A well-drissed man , named Peter Raitt , about 40 years of age who was formerly mate ofa ship , was charged with stealing a £ 20 Bank of England note belonging to Henry Llojd , a seaman . The prosecutor is a n . ative of Aberdeen , where he had formerly known the prisoner . On Thursday afternoon Lloyd and six other mariners , who had been discharged at Whitehaven from the ship Acasto , which had made a successful guano voyage , arrived in London by the railway , and proceeded to the Aberdeen steam wharf for the purpose of _engaging a passage to Scotland in the City of London steam-ship , which was to sail on Satur . day . Lloyd met his countryman Raitt on the wharf , and the recognition was a jojful one ou both sides . The prosecutor _aiked Raitt if he could recommend him and his shipmates to a lodging for a couple of nights until the
steamer sailed ! The prisoners assured the sailors he would take them to a safe harbour , where they would have a snug berth and good treatment , and accompanied them all to a lodging-house , No . 2 , Smith's . court , Wapping . Soon after the men w * re boused , the prisoner asked Lloyd if he had got any money , and advised him to be very careful , as there were plenty of _land-sharks about . Lloyd said be had a £ -0 note which he had received of his captain , aad the prisoner advised him to deliver it into his charge until the steamer sailed . Lloyd accordingly banded the note to the prisoner , who locked it up in his presence . Ou Saturday morning Lloyd asked the prisoner for his note . Raitt unlocked the box and feigned the greatest astonishment on finding it empty , He said the note was gone ; that he had been robbed of it ; and tbat Lloyd must put up with the
loss . The prosecutor , howaver , would not do so quietly , and gave the prisoner into the custody of a Thamespolice constable . That officer gave a bad account of the prisoner ; said he had been leading a dissipated life , and cohabiting with a woman of loose character at a liouse in Smlth's-place , oppoiite the one where the sailers had been lodging . Mr . Yardley a _? k « d tbe prisoner what he had done with tbe £ ' 20 note ? The prisoner said , he left the note in a box on his mantelshelf , and It it was stolen during bis absence from home . —Mr . Yardley : I don't believe a ward jou say . Will you give ap the note ?—The _Prisoner : I cannot do so . I hare not got it . —Mr . Yardley : I believe you have _appropriated the note to jour own use ; and if it is aot
restored I bave the power of punishm _; you severely . The prisoner having Persisted that ha could give no information about the note , Mr . Yardley said , he should enforce the provisions of a very useful act of Parliament , the 8 th and Oth Victoria , cap . 116 , —being , "An Act for the Protection of Searaeu entering on board _Metchant ships ; " and make an order on the prisoner to restore the £ ' 10 note he had illegally detained , and , in default of doitig so before the court closed , to pay in addition a penalty of £ 10 . The prisoner refused to comply with the order , and Mr . Yardley , after stating that the case was a very bad one , sentenced the prisoner to be imprisoned for six calendar months , and be kept to hard labour , which was the _maninuwi punishment awarded by the act .

ing no meant of subsistence the resolved on tramping with her children to her native place . She had applied to a parish for assistance , but they refused her , and the wat advised to make this appeal to hit worship . The poor creatures were quite exhausted , with scarce any coveving , and had evidently undergone great fatigue and want . The woman was closely questioned , and she answered in a manner that gave the face of probability and truth to , her story . Mr . Combe ordered that the family should receive every immediate assistance and comfort through tbe poor box , and tbat they should be provided for until the case might be properly investigated , for which purpose they were placed under the direction of Mr . Duke , tbe Chief Usher of tbe Court . Thej appeared grateful for the kindness shown towards them , and they were instantly supplied wiih food , clothing aed lodging .
MARLBOROUGH-STREET Dabing Robbery . — William Cooper , who described himself as a clerk in the service of a tradesman in Mile-end , was charged with thefollowing daring robbery . Miss Ann Burnell , of No . S , Harthind-terrace , said she was crossing from Foleyplace on Saturday afternoon last , when the prisoner suddenlj came inirontof her , snatched a parcel out of her hand , and ran off . She pursued and called " stop thief , " and , in a short time , the prisoner wag stopped . The parcel contained some cloth of little value . She w a s pos it ive th a t t he prisoner was t h e pe r s on who snatched the parcel from her hand . A piece of brown
paper was found in the prisoner's pocket immediately after he was apprehended , witness , to the best of her belief , declared to be the paper in which the cloth was wrapped . The prisoner , who treated the whole affair with perfect indifference , said he should defer his defence . He was committed . One ofthe witnesses , White , applied to Mr . Long for protection against tbe friends and relatives of the prisouer . While in Court , the parties had conducted themselves in a menacing manner towards him , and anticipated further annojonce from them Mr . Long said , if anj one molested him , to come to the Court , and he weuld take care that anj ene so misconducting himself should be properly punished .
MARYLEBONE . — The New _Twopenni Omnibus Coa . vitance . —Richard Prior , Thomas Hobbs , and James Clarke , drivers of omnibuses beloaging to the Metropolitan Joint Stock _ConTejance Company , and whose carriages convey passengers for the small charge of 2 d . from the Star and Garter , _Edgeware-road , to Hungerford Market , a distance of two miles and a half , appeared before Mr . Rawlinson upon summonses obtained by Inspector Hunt , of tbe D division , charging thtm witb having stopped in certain thoroughfares , vis : —The Edgeware-road , for a longer period than was necessary for loading or unloading , or for taking up or setting down passengers . Police constable 95 D , gave _evidence in support of the several complainants , and two of the defendans were fined 5 s . each . The summons against the third party was dismissed . Mr . Crawford , the aia *
nager of the Company's vehicles , complained tbat the pelice did not act impartially , inasmuch as summonses were continually issued against the new company , whilst the proprietors of thc original 6 d . omnibuses were left unmolested by the Police , although tbey were daily acting iu opposition to tbe law to a much greater extent than their less favoured rivals wero , The fines inflicted were immediately paid , and after the case was thus finally di > posed of . Mr . Gran ford re-entered tha Court , and was about to set forth to Mr . Rawlinson the shameful aud unjust means resorted to by the old company , witb the view of putting down the low priced vehicles , when he was told by the magistrate that the cases brought before bim had heen disposed of , and thathe was of course at liberty to indict any parties for a conspiracy if he thought proper .
GUILDHALL . — False Accusation . — Mr . Richard Thomas Tubbs attended to answer the complaint of Sarah Marks , his nursery maid , for indecently assaulting her on the 16 th and Uth ultimo . Mr . Wontner ap . peared on behalf of the prosecutrix , and Mr . Humphreys for the defendant , a warehouseman in Wood-street . _Cheapside . Mr . Wontner gave an outline of the case , which , he said , did not warrant bim in preferring a charge of rape , hut established aa _ussanlt on one day , aud on the other an assault with intont to violate . She mentioned the matter to her'fellow-servant the next day aud te her mother on the ' 26 th , the first time tha saw her . Her father immediately took her away , had the girl examined by a surgeon on the following Monday , and preferred this charge on the next day . Sarah Marks
stated that she is over 14 years , and had be- n in the _ser . vice of Mrs . Tubbs , as nursery maid , five weeks . Her master had three children , the youngest being still in arms . _OntheIGthhermastercameifito the nurseryat ten o'clock at night to see if the children were in bed , and finding her standing in her night clothes , he lifted her into bed , and put his hand up her clothes . She told him that was rery improper . On the next day he came into tbe nursery at dinner time to wash his hands . He then threw her on the bed and effected hit purpose . He told ber if she made any noise she would loose her place . Two of the children were playing in tbe passage , and running in and out ofthe room , and the room door was ajar . The child was in her arms , wben he put her in tbe
bed . She laid it by ber side and tried to get away . Mr . Humphrejs cross-examined the witness at great length but quietly , so as not to perplex her . She said she had not received notice to quit , nor had her master and mistress been continually finding fault witb hex . Her mistress found fault with her one day . So not recollect what it was for . It was for not putting clean drawers on the children . She once brought wrong change from the public-bouse , and htr mistress found fault with her : Those were the only occasions on which she fouud fault with her . Sheremeuibered another disagreement about 10 J . change . Her mistress said she could not tell what witness had done with It , There was another occasion about Sd . wrong ia change for some potatoes . Her mistress came home and told her about it . Her master
and mistress had frequently complained of her being dirty . Did not hear her master insist upon her getting rid of ber . Heard her mistress tell her brother , oa the 15 th , that if she did not alter she mutt send ber away . On th « ISth her mistress was out all day . Her mistress's father occupies two _roomt on the same floor witb the nursery , and her master sleeps in another room , but her mistress was down stairs In the parlour on tlie night of the 16 th . She supposed her _mistrei &' s father was in his rooms . He was in his rooms the next day when her master assaulted her . Further evidence , was adduced to prove the shuffling and fencing way in which tbe charge had been got up , after which Mr . Hunter of Miluersquare , Islington , surgeon , said he examined the girl on the 28 th December . There were thea no symptoms of violence , nor means of determining whether auy intimacy bad taken place or not . What wat regarded
as a test bad no existence in some cases . Mr . Humphreys addressed the magistrate at considerable length , contending tbat the motive wliich prompted the girl to make tlie charge was the fear of _baiig dismissed and 6 ent home , her father beiugout of work ; and she therefore framed an excuse for leaving without blame on her part . He dwelt upon her prevarication , and the improbability that a man would behave in the way alleged while his children were playing in the passage , and running in and out of the room , lie fortunately had _witnesses to show tbat bis client did not dine at home on tbe 17 th . Mr . Alderman Hughes Hughes said he would save him the trouble . The charge was totally unsupported by the evidence of the surgeoa _, and the girls _itutcnient embraced such extreme improbabilities , and the had pre . varicated to much , tbat he could not trust to her evideuce . He must dismiss the charge . .
WEDNESDAY .

After Witty wat rescued , a mob of two or three hundred persons surrounded the police mostly thieves and bad characters , a nd c ommenced , throwing brick-bats and stones at them .

behind , and was struck in the forehead with a brick-bat , which rendered him insensible .

IMPORTANT TO ALL WHO WISH TO POSSESS THE ELECTIVE FRANCHISE . At a meeting ofthe Central Election and General Reg istration Committee , held at tho Assembly Rooms , 83 , Dean Street , Soho , on Tuesday evening , January the 5 th , Mr . John Milne in the chair . The President of the South London Registration and Election Committee , brought forward , according to notice , a synopsis ofthe Reform and Registration Acts , also a letter prepared for the overseers of the parishes of England .. He commenced by saying—The subject of registering the compound householders has occupied my mind and attention for three or iour years past , and I am happy to say , that great success has attended my labors . Gentlemen , I contend that if you pursue the same course that I have
done , you might cause that righteous document , the Peo p le ' s Charter , to be enacted in the space of three years . In the parish of St . Mary , _Newington , the constituency has been doubled ; and in the parish of St . George the Martyr , Southwark , one thousand five hundred electors hare been plared on the list of voters in one year . In the year 1845 , 1 called together a few friends , we then foimed a Registration Society . We met regularly every week , and attended to the work we chalked out to do . A deputation attended the parish vestry , and referred the parochial authorities then present to their duty , as it regards the placing of every compound householders in the parish on the rate book ; and every compound householder or occupier of property of the clear yearly value of not less than ten pounds per annum on the list of voters for members to serve in
Commons House of Parliament . We also waited upon and corresponded with the overseers of the parish , and informed them that a society was in-Ktituted to watch their proceedings . We where received , both at the vestry , and by the respective _eterseers with great courtesy , and at our suggestion they honourably performed their duty as by law required , and canvassed the whole of their parish , and p laced the qualified persons on the list of voters , which passed the Revising Barristers Courts . Wc acted only partially on the parish of St . George ' s , and yet we thereby obtained the right for one thousand
five hundred persons . So you see Gentlememen , the plan is very simple , and also very efficient ; if the _patochial authorities neglect to do their duty , your next step is to arraign them before the Barristers Courts , and also before the . Courts of Westminster for " wilful neglect . " I would recommend the Gh . _rtist body earnestly to press the attention , and procure the energies of the Chartist Executive to lay themselves out whenever opportunity serres to carry out this most important movement . The speaker concluded by submitting the following circular : —
Circular to the Sub-Secretaries of tbe NatioRal Charter Association . _ThefCentral Election and Registration Committee would feel _themselves guilty of a derilietion of duty were they not , at this juncture of political affairs , to make an appeal to the country for carrying the principles ofthe Charter into the Legislative Assembly ofthe Empire . The dissolution of parties , and the perplexities of class legislators , offer a fair field for contesting and carrying elections in favour of the Chartist interest , the committee therefore suggest to you , and the Chartist public , the propriety of adopting the following means without delay , in
furtherance of this great and desirable object : — I . —The formation of Election and Registration Committees in all Chartist localities , not only where the Election may be contested with a fair prospect of success , but even where it is not intended to attempt a trial of strength , since it is only through the cooperation of the entire Chartist force , ( by way of contributions and otherwise , ) that _successful results can in any instance be obtained . Moreover it will be advisable to make a public stand , and to proceed as far as a show of hands , ( even when a contest is not contemp lated , ) thus to take the sense of the community , and promulgate the principles of the Charter .
IL—The raising of Funds . —The Central Committee are in correspondence with several boroughs where the Chartist party possess sufficient elective power to ensure success , but are not possessed of commensurate pecuniary resources for the legitimate expenses of a contest , Some such plans have collected large , but not adequate sums and the subcommittees will see the necessity of a general subs cri ption to make available the local power of such boroughs . Ill- —The carrying the re g istration of compound householders and others into effect , thousands being deprived ofthe franchise , through the neglect ofthe _oarish officers . The Central Committee refer to the fact , that in the parish of St . Mary Newington , and St . George the Martyr , Southwark . Voters have been put upon the registration lists , who were hitherto disfranchised , owing to the neglect ofthe Parochial officers .
The local committees will be put to neither trouble nor expen s e since the parish officers are bound under severe fines and _pen-lties , to carry into effect the amended clauses of tho Reform and Registration Acts , for the purpose of better enabling you to define the powers and provisions of which , a synopsis of the same in subjoined . Enclosed you will receive a circular letter , which you _. are requested to send without delay to the parish officer , " of your several locality . To effect a careful revision of claims before the revising barrister at his court , should an election not previously have occurred .
The committee cannot conclude , without expressing their earnest hope that this appeal will be suitably responded to . Now is the time to prepare for tho general election , which will probably take place before the usual duration of Parliament has expired . It will soon be too late for adequate preparations . Again you are reminded , let the opponents lind us not only willing but ready for tho contest .

The Local Registration and Election Committee Chairman . Sab-Secretary . Committee Room . To the Overseers ofthe parish of GbNTI / EMBN . —• I hereby inform you , that this above Committe was formed for the purpose of seeing the objects of the Reform Act and Registration Act carried into effect by the parochial authorities , in reference to placing the names of compound householders and others on the rate book , ana on the list of voters for members to serve in Parliament .
I am further directed to inform you , that by the Reform Act and Reg istration Act , 6 Yic . c . 18 , s . 13 , the duty devolves on the overseers ot every parish , _ito perform under a high penalty of £ 5 before the Barrister , nnd £ 100 additional before Courts of Westminster ) , of causing to be made out an alphabetical list of all persons who may be entitled to vote in the election of a member to serve in Parliament , in respect of the occupation of premises of the clear yearly value of not less than £ 10 , situate in the parish , and to perform this duty , they must necessarily place on the rate book the name of every occupier , as the foundation of such list .
liy _s . 57 ot the last cited act , it is provided that all _expences incurred by the overseers in executing such duties , shall be laid before the revising Barrister atthe Court , where the list of voters shall be revised , thatthe Barrister is to certify the amount , and that it shall be lawful for the said overseers to receive the sum so certified to be due to them out ofthe first monies thereafter to be collected for the relief of the poor in the said parish er township . I am , " gentlemen , on behalf of Committee , Sub-Secretary .
Ihe circulars having been moved , seconded and adopted , together with a synopsis of thc Reform and Registration Acts , ( which we will give next week)—the secretary was authorised to take the necessary steps to cause it to be inserted in as many papers as possible . A letter was read from Colonel Thompson , to which a reply was ordered to be sent . A strong appeal was made for funds to carry out the necessary operations , and secure the franchise to as many as possible . The Committee then adjourned until Tuesday evening , January the 12 th .
Iii'manity Of British Seamen. — Lately, ...
IIi'MANiTY of British Seamen . — Lately , whilst her Majesty ' s steam-sloop Bloodhound was lying at anchor in the Bosp horu s _, a Turkish cai c k or small skiff , laden with _pasticci , or slippers , was observed from on board the steamer to have capsized off the Seraglio Point , ond three men and a boy were seen _buffetting with the current . Half a dozen British tars , as though with one accord , immediately plunged overboard to rescue these unfortunate _beim-s from a watery grave . A stoker , of the name o ! Howe , showed himself to he the most expert of thc party , being the first to reach tho spot , when he had the satisfaction of seizing two men by the hair , whom
lie contrived to keep afloat until he reached the steamer . The third man was also saved , but the boy trom his diminutive size , was lost sight of by the seamen in the water ; not so , however , from tho vessel ; Captain Phillips , seeing that there was not a moment to be lost , threw eff his coat , _instantlv jumped overboard , and , making dkectfor theurchin , reached him at the very moment he was sinking into a watery grave . This act of humanity was for several days thc sole subject of conversation in the _lurkish capital ; but , strange to say , his Highness the Sultan—by no means parsimonious in costly gilts for services of much less importance—did not mark his sense ef the gallant act in the manner in which it richly merited
