Tbi 3 lecture was cot so well attended as we could wish , but the non-attendance arose from two causes ; fiist , the people were not " aware of Mr .

Williams , a ~ xd Jones . —On the above day , according to announcement , the Chartists of this town assembled in hundreds on the oj > en space of ground behind the Temperance Hall , and ptoceeded through the -sarious Btreets to tbe Odd Fellows' Hall in front of which many thousands assembled together for the purpose of recording their determination never io relax in their exertions until those three exiled patriots are restored to the bosom of iheir families . The committee Lave been indefatigable m tbeir exertions in order to do justice to so noble and praiaewurcby an
object-Mr . Jahes CLAB . B . SON , solicitor , was unanimously called npen to preside , who opened the meeting in an able address , and assured his audience that the meeting was perfectly legal , and their object most praise-• srortby . Mi- Hibj > moved the first resolution , which was seconded by Mr- Aldebson , and very ably supported by Mr . TillmaN , of Manchester . Mr . H » I > G 5 ON" moved the secorid resolution , which was seconded by Mr . Bckbows . and supported by i 3 r . Tattebsall , a young man from Culne , who , in an argumentative style , laid bars the rottenness of the present system , and proved to tbe congregated thon-Bands that persecution and pro * ecution bad never accomplished tiie desired effect , but was like seed ¦ own on fruitful soil .
It -was then moved and seconded that the admirable memorial , drawn up by the Restoration Committee of Birmingham , should be adopted . After been pat from the c ^ air , there was only one hand held up against it . The next resolution was nnanimeusly carried : — " That the memorial should be signed by the Chairman , on behalf of tbe meeting , 'and sent to the Committee at Birmingham . " Thaoks having been voted to the Chairman , three ebeers were given for the victims , and the meeting separated to prepare for the t « a-party and balL At six o ' clock , the Social Institution was filled with decently-dressed working men , and their wives and sweethearts . Upwards of four hundred partook ol tea a&d other refreshments . After tea , Mr . Bubnett 'in the absence of Mr Clarkson , officiated as Chairman , who in ; roanced Mr Tillman .
Mr . Tillman then delivered a very feeling address , j and when adverting to the sufferings of the imprisoned , ChanisiB and their families , he brought forth tears from the eyes of the wives of the incarcerated Chartists of this town . Mr . TaTTEBSall exhorted tiie females U > enlist nn- der the Chartist banner . He clearly proved the fal- lacy of what is said by these who are interested in the perpetuation of the present ab # minable system of peculation and plnnder , that women ought not to have ¦ anything to do with politics ; he trusted tbat finch of them as wexe mothers , or might be , would educate ¦ their chil' ^ rvn in the principles of universal liberty , ¦ and the d » y would not be far distant when we should ¦ bave a nation of freemen , and " sing with truth " Britons never shall be slaves . " j The evening was spent in a most agreeable manner . ' A . full quadrille and two other bands were engaged for the occasion , and all went off harmoniously . <

! - ' " . ¦ :., ¦ ¦ ' . ' ¦ = WEEDS . —The Leeds Total Abstinence Char ter Association . —This excellent society held its first annual tea part ; on Friday evening , the 1 st of January , 1841 , in the School Room , 82 , High-street The room was tastefully decorated with ever ^ .-eens , and the portraits ef most oi our highly esteemed patriots ; that of Frost , and the splendid full-length portrait of O'Connor being conspicuously placed at each end . The party was rather a numerous one ; but particularly for Leeds , and considering that Chartism is now dead . Several guests who bad been invited were unavoidably absent . The meeting y > & » , however , unexpectedly complimented by tbe presence of two staunch friends from WafcefleM .
After the cloth was drawn , Mr . Isaac Wilson was called to tbe chair , and optned the business of the meeting in his usual shrewd and happy style . He said this was something new in the annals of Chartism , and particularly in those of Teetotalism . He referred to the large amount ef good which had arisen from the efforts of the Association since its commencementcongratulated the meeting en its opening prospects of future usefulness , and bade them fight manfully the battle of the Lord , by seeking the destruction of all political error and oppression . The following resolution was tben moved by Mr . Wm . Rideb : — ' That this meeting , being convinced that the manifold evils endured by the productive classes of this country bave their origin in the existing system of misgovernment , therefore , resolve never to relax our efforts until the Charter becomes the law of the land . "
Mr . Ridee , in the straightforward and perspicuous manner , so peculiarly his own , detailed many of tbe evils under which the people groaned—affirmed there was no " Constitution , " but , as the resolution justly stated , nothing but " misgovernment" * and despotism ruled the land . The only remedy he knew was the Charter ; it was tiseless to heed the pitying wail of the crotchet-mongers—the Charter is tbe only safe refuge from misrule and tyranny . Mr . Joseph Parker then came forward to seeond the resolution , and , in doing so , expr < jssed great
pitasure . He gave tbe Whigs and parsons a lesson that might have done them good , had they heard him : he appeared in his best cue ; and proceeded , amid frequent outburst of cheers , to entertain the audience with the detail of a few specimens of double-distilled Whig knavery , rejoicing in the sober teetotal stand his brethren were making for the Charter , the whole Charter , and nothing less . The resolution was then put and carried , with cheers ; after which , a song was called for , and sung by the meeting , called " Whiggery ' s fallen , " from Hick's Collection . Mr . W . Hick , then moved the second resolution . —
" That this meeting considers the sentences pronounced upon Messrs . Frost , Williams , and Jones as an act oi cruelty and injustice on the part of our oppressors , and one which renders the present Government unworthy of tbe leait confidence or support . " Mr . H . showed , to the great satisfaction of tbe meeiing , that our expatriated friends were neither banished by the laws , judges , or the Queen , but solely to gratify the pitiful revenge of Lord John Kussell ; tbat the people alone can bring them back to the bosom of their families and friends : this must be done ! The thunder of the people ' s demand must roll from centre to circumference . The lion once roused will be clothed in terror cot to be resisted ; and they shall return to cheer the hearts of the nation , " bringing their sheaves ¦ with them . " Mr . Oldhotd , in a neat speech , that waa evidently from tbfc heart , seconded the resolution . Mr . Templer moved the . third resolution : —
" That petitions be prepared and signed fey twenties , te be presented to Parliament early in the ensuing session , praying for the immed'ate and . unconditional liberation of Frost , Williams , and Jones . " Mr . T . observed that this course ought to be pursued throughout the length and breadth of the land : never to let the subject rest but either by carrying a conviction of its justice , or , by an everlasting annoyance cowpel them to liberate our friends . He , like a true Chartist , would be found at his post . Seconded by Mr . J . M'Cabtht . Tbe health of oar beloved friend , Feargug O'Connor , Esq ., and the sptedy liberation of all iot-arceMted Char tists , was profxwed amidst the beany cheers of all present ; and , also , a vote of tbanVs to the Edilor of tbe Northern Star , for tbe very able manner in which he has advocated the people s cause Proposed by Mr . Gallalgher , and seconded by Mr . Turner .
After the meeting had expressed themselves highly delighted , and under infinite obligation to tbe ladies who provided the entertainment , and voted thanks to the Chairrovn , one of the most Belf-satisficd patties that evtr met broke up , giving three cheen , and one cheer more , for Frost . Williams , and Jones , on whose acccmnt most of the company wore mourning rosetU ? and crape . Pcbuc "Meeting . —The very seat of Whijr ^ ery , and emporium of the Foxes , in which their Uat .-e
are stored , has made its voice heaTd on this occasion , as oj many former ODea . A spirited aDd energetic meetisg was held on Tuesday evening , the Rev . W . Hi ]] in the chair , whea resolutious , fevxnpa . bisiu ^ with their victimized bretbrea , and pied ^ uij ; the people to unceasiDgactivity on their own bebaH , were Tmrvunnoui'iy adopted . The Birmingham memorial was also adopted . The meetvDg waa addressed , in glowiDg and patriotic speeches , by the Chai * iraT > , aud by Messrs . Westlake , Gardiuer , Illing , worth , Jones , and Leech , of Manchester .
Female Meeilsg . —The female Chartists of this town took tea together on New Year ' s Eve ; after which , son ^ s were sung and dancing kept ud with great spirit till the hour of departure . Various toast 3 and sentiments were given and responded to . The sum of Us . 6 J ., beiDg the profits arising from the tea , was appropriated to Mrs . Frost and the " Families , " as is announced in our list of sub-. r amines , as is announcea in our nsi oi
suo' i scriptions . I SA 2 TLS 7 S—A public meeting took place here at the Gotten Lion Inn , ilr . G . B . Mart being voted to 1 the chair , proceeded to explain the objects of tbe | meeting to a crowded assembly of " blistered kands . " j He addressed the audience as fellow-slaves , and observed i ibat he could not with propriety address them in any \ other language until they had done all they could to ' obtain their rights . ! Mr . JosErH Capper called upon the workingclns . Kes ! to do their duty . Ciass-legislation was the sole cause 1 of all our grievances , anl Mr . Frost and his cc-patriots ; had used s . 1 ; their influence for its destruction ; for ' . daxiug to speak the truth , the Whig Government \ xaA ' pat these noble-minded men in the degraded position | of felons . After a speech replete with sound and manly argument , he moved tbe first resolution : — '; " That a memorial be presented to her Majesty on : behalf of M <^ srs . Frost , Williams , and Jones . "
Mr . Preist setonddd the Tesomtion . He said although he had been rather a stranger amongst them , he bad bten Witching their movements in the cause of 1 right against might . The objects of this meeting , ! observed Mr . Priest , were for all parties , Chartist , i Whig , or Tory to assist in , for the Werd of God com-; manded that we should love mercy and do justly . \ After going through the different movements of Whig ' policy , snch as the inhuman and anti-Christian Poor 1 , and the system of csntralised power , and ' pressiDg upon the men of the Potteries to work out tbe ' . redemption of these men , he sat down amidst loud \ cbeers . : The resolution being put to the vote , was carried ] unanimously . i Mr . Moses Simpson moved the second resolution : —
5 ( ; < I ; , , i i " That this meeting approves of the recommendation named in the Star of the 26 th instant , as the most efficient means of gaining access to her Majesty , and producing the effect desired ; and tbat the memorial be given to the cs . re of the Birmingham Committee . " The working men , he contended , were the likeliest to do their own work , and to feel more sympathy for those of their own order than any class above them . For this reason he should support the resolution . The conviction of Mr . Frost and his fellow-patriots were obtained more from prejudice than law , and just at a time when the country had not a full knowledge of all the circamstance 8 of the case . The " Special
Com-; ¦ ; ; mission , " he said , was contrary to the Bill of Kighta and Maffna Ckaria . ( Htar , hear . ) After reading an antnentic account of Mr . Frost ' s life , which represented that individual as an amiable father , a good husband , and a true friend of the working classes , h « advised the working classes to use their utmost exertiocs to recal these true patriots . The Queen , he said , had tbe prerogative to pardon or to mitigate punishment ; but he doubted the tyrants in power would put a stop to her sympathy . He Bhou ' d tell the warking men to put themselves in such a position as should compel the absolute tyrants to allow her Majesty to exercise her prerogative of mercy .
Mr . Hamlet HenshaLL , in seconding the resolution , said these men were transported for exerting themselves to get every man represented ; for this they w ^ re Bent across the briny ocean , to be tortured to death as other patriots before them . John Bull , he said , was a very patient being in his sickness , and thought he had lost the blood of bis noble ancestors The Wh < g quacks , he said , would give bim a sticking piaster , wh'le the real Chartist would probe the wound to its depths , and effect a radical cure . The English , he said , were importing German blood to mix with ours to produce a better race of noble paupers ; he thought this was already effected ; and John Ball would again bave to suck bis thumb to fill his belly . The second resolution was carried without a
dissentient Mr . Oldbam moved the third resolution . — " That this meeting pledges itsslf to co-operate with the Birmingham Committee in securing the return of these patriots . " * The object in transporting these brave me * was , tald the speaker , to get rid of the friends of tbe people , that they might glut themselves with wealth at tbe working man ' s expenee . Mt . Wk . Timhis seconded it by saying that he shonld caution them z » ot to believe the reports circulated by the Whig papers , that Mr . Frost was treated thia or that way , as they did all they coald to blind the country . Carried unanimously . Mr . Chas . Hack . net moved , and Mr . Bbvving-TOR seconded : — " That a report be Bent to tbe Norther * Star . "

Mr . Roberts thought it was unnecessary for h ' m to address them at any length , as the d * y was stormy ; he would , therefore , read the bill calling the meeting . —Mr . Mason , the Chartist missionary , proposed the first resolution . He said , Frost had agitated for the benefit of the working classes ; he had no cause to agitate but for their benefit ; he could sit down upou his sofa in comfort ,
enjofiug the smiles of his wife and family ; he haa aneait that could feel for the working classes ; he went to the Convention to benefit them ; not only the working class , but also the middle classes would be better off under the government Frost sought to establish . Frost , Williams , and Jones were the victims of Lord Normanby . Tneyiadjua intention of overthrowing the'Government of this country ; they had no idea of committing the crime of High Treason ; the crime they committed d < d not amount to High Treason ; it was proved that there were not arms sufficient to stand against any body of men ; therefore it was impossible that they could have any intention of overthrowing the throne ; the Judges were of this opinion . There was not
sufficient reason to try Frost , Williams , and Jones for High Treason . They were taken from their cells in the dead hour of night , and sent on board a convict ship , and hurried into exile by the Government , regardless of all the forms of law . We do not wish to oppose the law , but we have a right to take care tbat the law is properly respected . He hoped that the Queen would take into her most serious consideration tbe case of the exiled patriots ; and when she lies on her death-bed , she will have the consolation that the best act of her life had been their restoration to liberty . He proposed the following resolution , which was seconded by Mr . Jonathan Barber : — " That it is the opinion of this meeting , that Frost , Williams , and Jones were illegally tried , inasmuch as the forms prescribed by
the Acts of Parliament relating to high treason had not been complied with , and , therefore , illegally convicted ; and this meeting pledges itself not to cease agitating till Frost , Williams , and Jones are restored to tbeir country and their families . " Mr . Sweet proposed , and Mr . Every seconded , the memorial , which waa carried , every band being held up . The resolution recommended in the Star , that Lovett , Morgan , Williams , and Moir be appointed to present the memorial to the Queen , was unanimously adopted . Three cheers were then given for Frost , Williams , and Jones , three for O'Connor and the Northern Star , and three for the imprisoned patriots . The thanks of the meeting were then voted to the Chairman ; after which th « meeting quietly dispersed . .

William Morgan , member of the late Convention , rose to make some observations upon the means to obtain the repeal , but the repealers would not hear him ; when Mr . F . W . Simeon proposed that Wm . Morgan take the chair , which was carried almost unanimously . Mr . Simeon thea proposed the following resolution : —" That this meeting is of opinion that the base Whigs will never repeal the Corn Laws ; that the only way to get those , and ail other oppressive laws repealed , is by first carrying the
people ' s Chaiier ; that if the Corn Law repealera were . desirou'j of reliermg the distresses of the people , they would join with them in endeavouring to obtain their pol > t > cal rights , and thus enable them to remove , uofc only the Corn Laws , but all other laws that oppress them ; and it is resolved not to agitate for any other measure , till the Charter is become the law of the laud . " The resolution was seconded by Mr . Pierce , aud carried unanimously .

DERBY . —National Charter Association . — The immbeis of the above Association held their meeting as usual , at the Bull ' s Head , Queeu-streei , on Sunday last , when the landlady of the house sa > d she was sorry to inform us thai slie could not longer accommodate us .

Brophy addressed , the meeting . He said he was glad to have
tbe opportunity of addressing eo many of bis fellowcitizens on the subject of tbe Chirier , but more especially on the flagrant injustice done to Messrs . Frost , Williams , Jones , and other victims of Whig treachery and persecution . They were men who dated to think and act for tbe people ; and how were they treated by those whom we are called on to obey and to suppoit in profligate Luxury ? They were stultn by night from the bosoms of their families aud tbeir country , and sent as felons uctoss tbe Atlantic , to be sold as slaves , and this , too , by a Government tbat professes to be liberal . He concluded by moving the that resolution : —
