" BIRJOWGHATg . —Mjsssbs . Coxuss AJfD O'Neil aro the Bibminshah Associatioh . —Nothing gives vsi&ore pain than to find ourselves compelled , in justice Kid in honesty , to be the chroniclers of disagreements in our owb ranks ; but , as the faithful heralds of the movement , we most comply frith the demand of duty , however disagreeble . We have received many letters from the Chwtist friendB of Sinungham , complaining of an unfriendly spirit BttBffested towards the saeoeiate body of Chartists in that town , by the leaders of the Chartist Christian Gwreb ; some if them denouncing those leaders by nee , in rather stringent terms . We have declined to notice these « oaHBunicatione ; but we think the following demand * notioe . We received it in time for oor last paper , and should have noticed it therein ; bat that it was laid aside and overlooked . After acme preliminary remarks , the letter Bays : —
" We are endeavouring to get up . a soiree In honour of Means . White , Vincent , andBinns . On Thursday evening last , Mr . Barret , one of our Council , attended the chnieh , and requested the chairman ( Mr . O'Neil ) to ynnfutyn that tickets for the soiree may be had at the door ; they not only refused to make the announcement , imt actually advised those present not to purchase , and ate , to their utmost , endeavouring to make our soiree a failure . The chairman ( O'Nefl ) not only refused to give tbe notice out , but tried to make the company believe that we were acting a deceptive part towards the public Hit words being " I am sorry that I gave it out on
Sunday , for I have found since , that it is a lie—that Mr . Vincent will not be there . " "We beg leave to say that TW never said that Mr . Vineent would be there ; if we thought proper to bold a soiree in honour of Messrs . frost , Williams , and Jones , that would not declare tfeat those -gentlemen would be present . We wish to honour Mr . Vincent as a Buffering patriot If Mr . Vincent can be present , we shall be happy U have his presence But how came they to know that Sir . Yincent would not be there ? Mr . Collins has been to London , aod , while there , made it his business to see Mr . Yineast This accounts for alL It is well known that the
general committee for the restoration of our much respected but saBarbig f rieads , Messrs . Frost , Williams , and Jones , meet in Birmingham now . Mr . Collins , as a leader in Birmingham—as a member of the late Con * YflQtioB—as a Chartist , would naturally be expected to be we of the foremost in this work of mercy . Is he « o ? Let hia-ooaduct speak . Mi . Collins never attended one meeting , neiU&er public nor private , about this object Never , until tbe demonstration at Holloway-head , on New YeartBay , when he , in company with Arthur
Q'Xeil , walked up together , about half an hour after the meeting was advertised to commence . The people Were willing to look over bis pact offences , asd in doing so appointed Mr . Collins chairman . How did be . act in that important situation ? What were his words ? He respected Jonn Frost , while he condemned bis conduct . Thus , by the first and last interest , he took in Mr . Frost ' s behalf , he has done an irreparable injury to that great and good man ' s character .. It is with regret that we have stated these facts , but our duty to tho public demands them . "
[ We shall not add a word to thier statement , farther than to echo the last sentence . " it is with regret we permit this statement of alleged facts to appear ; but our dnty to the public demands it . " ] Public Meetisg at Birmingham . —A meeting ¦ was held on Thursday evening last , at the Christian Chartist Church , Newhafi-street . A lecture was delivered by Mr . O'Neil on the " Poets of the People , " in the course of which he read several beautiful and soul stirring passages from Sonthey ' s "Wat TjlerJ' and also quoted largely from the writings of Shelley and Byron . At the conclusion of tiie lecture , Mr . T . P . Green commented on the manner in which the lecturer bad treated the snbject , sad was replied to by Mr . Collins . After which ,
Mr . George White addressed the meeting . He stated that he had come to that meeting on important business , connected with the Chartist movement . He had that evening received a circular from tbe Secretary of the Executive Council at Manchester , requesting him to call a meeting for the purpose of electing a Delegate to attend at Manchester on the 20 ft for the transaction of importact business . He bad-no other course to pursue than the one he had already taken , as the Rational Charter Association would not have another meeting until after the time appointed for the meeting of delegates . He thought it his duty to lay the circular before them , as he
understood that the persons attending that place were Chartists , and also as the meelwg is question was called for the purpose of removing the objections keld by a portion of the Chartist s of Birmingham ' He- therefore thought it highly necessary that a meeting should be called and a Delegate elected . Mr . OMiail objected to the recommendation of Mr . White , a 3 a meeting could not be legally called for thaelection of a Delegate without five days' previous notice , besides there was but one day in which the notic * could be given , and that would not be euffi-« iest time to take the opinion of the people . Mr . Collins coincided with Mr . O * Neii as to the
shortness of the notice , and moved a resolution to that effect , which was seconded by Mr . C ^ Neil . Mr . White , then addressed the meeting on the necessity of a cordial union between the Chartists as the only means of attaining the end they Bought , and expressed a hope that when the cause of the objections held by some of them had been removed , they would But * with their brethren of the National Charter Association . Mr . Hill expressed his willingness to join the Association when he might do so with safety ,
and had no doubt that they would ail act similarly . Mr . Empson was determined to keep within the limits of the law , and if the Association was framed on a proper basis he would immediately join it . Mr . White congratulated them on the good feeling displayed , and said he doubted not , that tbe Delegate Meeting at Manchester , would remove all cause of difference , and that real Chartists would then be enabled to unite together for the attainment of their righte . Mr . Collins ' s resolution was then put and earned , afier which the meeting separated .
National Chabikb Association . —The Council of this body held their weekly meeting on Monday evening last , at Bill ' s Coffee House ^ Moof-street . Mr . LyneR was called to the chair , and Mr . T . P . Green was requested to act as Secretary for the evening , in the absence of ili . Penn . He then proceeded to read the minutes of the last meeting , which were confirmed . Several letters were then read , from various places , amongst which was one from T . Duncombe , Esq ., M . P ., stating thai he presented the Birmingham petition on behalf of Feargus O'Connor , Esq ., on the 19 th iust . ; and that " although he feared Mr . O'Connor ' s health had suffered from his confinement , yet his treatment in York Cistle was now very different from what it -was at
the commencement of his imprisonment—a friend of his having paid him a visit , who was not subjected to the intrusive presence of the turnkey , 03 formerly . " A letter from Redditch , requested that Mr ; Deaa Taylor should be sent to them in exchange for another ; but the Council considered it would create confusion , as the Lecturers' Tour was already published . Mr . White then Etated that he had received a circular and 100 cards of membership from Mr . Tillman , of Manchester . He delivered aa account of the manner in which he acted , as regarded the circular , requesting a meeting to be called to elect a delegate , to proceed to Manchester . The Council Approved of what b . 3 had done , and regretted that ihe circular had not arrived sooner . A . long conrersation took place as to the necessity of calling a public meeting for the parpose of electing a fresh Coancil ; the present Council expressing their willingness to resign in favour of any persons the
people might choose—so that the business might be conducted in a manner to remove all cause of jealousy or division , it is their intention to call a public meeting at the earliest opportunity after the decision of the delegates of Manchester shall become known , for-the purpose of electing a fresh Coancil , they being determined to act upon that decision , and not to countenance or support any other body . Chaktist Soibjeb . —The sub-committee , for the purpose « f conducting the soiree , to be held on the 9 th of March , in Hvnovx of Messrs . Vincent , White , mud Bums , are making all possible arrangements for carrying out the object for which they have been chosen . Mr . Barratt stated that more than half the tickets had been Bold . It was then determined that the remaining cards should be left for sale at the following places : —Mr . Guest , booksellsi , Steelhouse Lane ; Mr . Taylor , printer , Smallbrook-street ; and Mr . Watts , stationer , Snow HilL
SAHSBACH . —At a meeting of friends to the principles of the Charter , held in Sandbach , on the 21 st iost for the purpose of organising the County of Cheshire , and forming associations in those towns where there is none ; and , secondly , to provtCe funds for a lecturer ; resolutions were adopted in furtherance of those objects by the parties present The third resolution called earnestly on the following places to send friends to the next meeting , which will be called in the Star , and by letters to the secretaries of the following places ' : —Nantwieh , Nortnwieh , Middlemen , Sandbach , Macclesfield , and from the council of Congleton .
WOI . VERHAflEPTOX . ~ Mr . Dean Taylor , tbe Chartist lecturer for the district , lectured at Mr . Hogg ' s Temperance Coffee House , on Sunday last , Mr . Jdogg was called to the chair , and , after a few observation * , introduced Mr . Taylor , who addressed toe aeftting lor about an hoar and a half . After a Sow preliminary remarks , Mr . Taylor stated , that motk of the evils which afflicted society proceeded from , clue-legislation ; he then called the attention of th * audience to the manner in which the Church J—d the State support each other , in their
encroachments on the rights of the industrious classes . He Afterwards p ointed oat the effects of the slavish docfames ifienleued by the preachers of different sects , la reducing the wages of the operative . He then exposed some of the clerical objections to political equality , and concluded by recommending the diffusion of Bound political information , and the Charter m the means to remove the distress of the people . The lecture gave universal satisfaction , and votes of shanks to the lecturer and chairman were carried with toe auaaimms consent of tbe meeting .
CHACBWATER ( Cornwall . ) On Monday evening , the 15 th instant , the large Club Room of the Falmouth Ion was crowded to excess , to hear Mr . J . H . Longmain , late of Traro , a member of the Redruth Charter Association , who addressed them on the propriety of obtaining political knowledge , as that would alone be the me ^ ns of giving them power . The speaker recommended the poor man s paper as the only beacon of light and defender of the rights of the poor , holding in his band the Northern Star , eulogising the character of its proprietor , Feargus O'Connor , and tke many sacrifices he has made , and describing his present position ,
&c , and of others , suffering in the cause of the people ; reminding them of that noble of nature , and of their own country , ( Lovett ) briefly explaining the prosecutions tliey would have to oontend against . Having mentioned the name of Sporr , there was a partial cheer raised by those who knew him . At the conclusion of the meeting , Mr . Longmain was requested to meet them at an early period . Great hopes are entertained of forming an association in connexion with Redruth and Cornwall ; could we obtain a spirited and talented missionary , we think the motto of "« ne and all " would be realised .
EDINBURGH . —The quarterly meeting of the Edinburgh Charter Association was held in Whitefield Chapel , on Wednesday evening week , Mr . James Cummin *? , President of the Association , in the chair , who stated the business of the meeting . Mr . Husband , the Secretary , then asked whether he ( the Chairman ) would read the minutes of the Committee for the last quarter , when it was carried by a majority that they be not read . The auditors then brought forward their report of the income and expenditure of tbe last quarter , wbieh was unanimously adopted ; the debts of the Association , including rent , were then stated to be above £ 8 . Mr . Blackie then brought forward a report of the income and expenditure of tbe social meetings , which
shewed , upon an average , that the Association had been gainers to about XI per week . A motion that the report be received , and a vote of thanks to the Social Meeting Committee , for their unwearied exertioBs , was carried nnanimoasly . Mr . Rankin then rose , in pursuance of a motion of which be had given notice last quarterly meeting , and moved that the Edinburgh Charter Association be dissolved , which was seconded by Mr . Blackie , and carried . Mr . John Watson then moved that a new Association be formed , and called " The Edinburgh Chartist Association , " which was seconded , and carried unanimously . Mr . Rankin tken read the rules for the guidance of the new Association , and moved their adoption , which was seconded and carried . Fifteen members of the Committee were
then elected . In consequence of Mr . J . Duncan having made an offer of his stock and shop to the Committee , as he was leaving town , having been appointed preacher , &o , to the Chartists of Dundee , considerable discussion arose whether it would be pro&t&ble or not ; and if profitable , would the Association be justified in becoming speculators , such baling a tendency to divert the members from the object they had in view—the attainment of their political rights . It was ultimately carried , by a majority of one , that the sub-committee , which had been previously appointed , be empowered to conclude the bargain to the best advantage . The Comm \ tt « e meet every Tuesday and Saturday eveningB , from eight to ten o ' clock , where every information will be given respecting the new organisation .
REDDITCH . —A Chartist sermon was preached at this place , on Monday the 21 st , by Mr . Clements , of Bromsgrove . He took his text from the first part of the 62 nd Psalm : — " Trust not in oppression , and become not vain in robbery . " He pointed out the oppression inflicted on the poor of this country in an able and eloquent manner , and explained the means resorted to by an unprincipled government to reduce the industrious portion of the community to penury . He concluded his address , by exhorting his hearers to join the Chartist movement . His sermon gave great satisfaction , and has done much good .
BROMSGROVE . —The Chartist cause is progressing rapidly in this place . A spirited meeting was held last week at the Town Hall , to hear an address from Mr . Dean Taylor , the lecturer for this district . A procession was formed for the purpose of escorting Mr . Taylor to the plaoe of meeting ; the members of the band wearing gilded laurel leaves in their hats on the occasion . The Hall , which is capable of holding 1 , 000 persons , was well filled on the occasion . Mr . Sanders was called to the chair , and opened the meeting by giving out the Chartist National Anthem , which was &ung with great spirit by the meeting . He then read the rules of the National Charter Association : after which ,
be introduced Mr . Dean Taylor , who was listened to with great attention , whilst he pointed out the evils proceeding from the union of Church and State , and how they jointly oppressed the people ; and then explained tbe true nature of political equality . At the conclusion of his address , he stated his willingness to hold a discussion with any person who might differ with him iu opinion : none appearing willing to accept the challenge , Mr . Taylor retired , heartily cheered . A large number then enrolled their names as members of the National Charter Association , and the numerous assemblage retired to their homes , well pleased with tbe eloquent and able lecturer .
STOCKPORT . — A . correspondent calls upon the working classes , and friends to free enquiry generally , in Stockport , to take shares in the proposed Hall of Science , which will be capable of holding 1500 persons , with school rooms , library , reading , and committee rooms attached , which will be let at a moderate rate , to any party , for public meetings , lectures , discussions , balls , concerts , dinner and tf a parties . Nearly 500 shares are now taken up . We need not add that in such an important town as Stockport such a building is of thehighest importance and value ; especially when it is so deficient as at present in public accommodations , available for the working classes .
SUWDERLAND . —CHARTIST Ball . —On Tuesday last , the Chartists of Sunderknd had a Social BalJ in the large room of the Golden Lion Inn . The attendance was upwards of one hundred , and comprised most of the youthful portion of the Chartist body in Sunder land . The dancing was kept up with spirit , and with excellent order , until an early hour the following morning . Several songs and recitations were given in tbe coarse of the evening ; Mr . George Binns delivered a short address , on Frost , Williams , and Jones . The proceedings were
conducted with so much decorum and good taste , that we are warranted by experience in stating that tbe people have the capacity to enjoy the pleasures of dancing , without debasing themselves , as their betters frequently do , at such assemblies . It is worthy of remark , that , while so many were called together by the sympathies of Chartism , a Loyal Ball , -which was attempted to be got up in the same room , to celebrate the christening of the Qneea ' s babe , turned oat a miserable failure , only sixteen persons , male and female , having attended . So much for the middle-class loyalty .
CASTLE DOUGIiAS .-A Democratic Association has been established here , much to the alarm of the gentry and priests in this quiet rural quarter , and to the encouragement of the friends of liberty . May they go on conqnering , and to conquer .

Perry's Purifying Specific Pills , price 2 s . 9 d ., 4 s . 66 ., and 11 s . ( Observe none are genuine without the signature of R . and L . Perry on the side of each wrapper ) which are well known throughout Europe and America , to be the most certain and effectual cure ever discovered for every Stage and Symptom of the Venereal Disease , in both sexes , including Gonorrhsea , Gleets , Secondary Symptoms , Strictures , Seminal Weakness , Deficiency , and Diseases of the Urinary Passages , without loss of time , confinement , or hindrance from business . They have effected the most surprising cures , not only in recent and severe cases , but when salivation and all other means have failed ; and when an early application is made to these Pills , for the cure oi
the Venereal Disease , frequently contracted in a moment of inebriety , the eradication is generally completed in a few days ; and in the more advanced and inveterate stages of venereal infection , characterised by a variety of painful and distressing symptoms , a perseverance ia the Specific Pills , in whioh Messrs . Perry have happily compressed the m 08 t purifying and healing virtues of the principal part of the vegetable system , and which is of the utmost importance to those afflicted with Scorbutic affections , Eruptions on any part of the body , Ulcerations , Scrofulousor Venereal taint ; being justly calculated to cleanse the' blood from all foulness , counteract every morbid affection , and restore weak and emaciated constitutions to pristine health and vigour .
The rash , indiscriminate , and unqualified use of Mercury , has been productive of infinite mischief ; under the notion of its being an antidote for a certain disease , the untutored think they have only to saturate their system with Mercury , and the business is accomplished . Fatal error ! Thousands are annually either mercurialized out of existence , or their constitutions so broken , and the functions of nature so impaired , as to render the residue of life miserable . The disorder we have in view owcb its fatal results either to neglect or ignorance . In the
first stage it is always local , and easy to be extinguished by attending to the directions fully pointed out in the Treatise , without the smallest injury to the constitution ; but when neglected , or improperly treated , a merelooal affection will be converted into . an incurable And fatal malad y- What a pity that * young man , the hope of his country and the darling of his parents , should be snatched from all the prospects and enjoymetns of life by the consequences of one unguarded moment , and by adisease which is not in its own nature fatal , and which never proves so if properly treated .
It is a melancholy fact that thousands fall victim , to this horrid disease owing to the unskilfuInesB of illiterate men , who , by the use of that deadly poison , mercury , ruin the constitution , cause ulceratron , blotches on the head , face , and body , dimness of sight , noise in the ears , deafness , obstinate gleets , nodes on the Bhin bone , ulcerated Bore throats , diseased nose , with nocturnal pains in the bead and limbs , till at length a general debility of the constitution ensues , and a melancholy death puts a period to their dreadful sufferings .

OLD PARR'S SECRET OP LONG LIFE DISCOVERED . A MOST singular document has recently been brought to light , and is now in the possession of the Rev . Wh . Arther , of East Peckham : it appears to have been written by the celebrated OLD PARR , who attained the almost incredible age of one hundred and fifty-two years , and who left this document to a relation : it is written on parchment , and althoogh upwards of two hundred y ears old is in an excellent state of preservation . The following is an extract : —
"These do oertifie yt ye undermentioned is ye method of preserving health , which by ye grace of Almighty God has caused me to attain to my miraculous old age . Albeit in my youth I was afflicted with ye Bloody Flux and King ' s Evil , but which all left me by using some dayes ye herbs as herein written . " Here follows the receipt : — M Moreover , I bequeath to my second Great Grand ' son ye method I employ for preparing ye medicament . Givtm this day , and in ye 147 th yaar of my age , M Thomas Pabb . " M Winnington , Salop , Jannarie 17 th , 1630 . "
This singular character was the oldest man , with one exception , that England ever produced : his biographer says , " the days of his youth , according to bis own account , was a series of long and painful illness , but that by some secret means he cured himself , and was stronger than moBt men when be married his first wife , which he did at the advanced age of eighty-eight ; he again married at the amazing age of one hundred and twenty ; at one hundred and thirty he used to thresh corn , and do any laborious work . He had seen ten Kings and Queens of England . The Clergyman who holds the valuable document abovementioned , has , by the assistance of a very able chemist and physician , caused the receipt of Old Parr ' s to be made into Pills , and although only a space of eighteen months have elapsed since the trial , upwards of seven hundred cures have been effected ; more than one-half were considered
incurable ; and what is more remarkable , cases which possess the very opposites as regards outward Bymptoms : the balsamic and invigorating effects on the blood produced by these medicines is perfectly miraculous ; many who have kept their beds for years have been so speedily re-invigorated with an infusion of new blood , and consequently of new life and strength , that their re-appearance amongst their fellow-beings , who had long given them up as incurable , is looked upon as the greatest of the many great wonders of this miraculous age . The whole of our system is built up from the blood—nerves , sinews , muscles , and even solid bone ; this being the case , the grand object is to keep this precious fluid ( the blood ) in a pure and healthy state , for without this purity disease will show itself in some way or other .
Cases of every description have all been onred simply by the use of Parr ' s Life Pills , thus showing that what has been considered different disorders , and requiring different treatment , all originated in the same cause , and can be cured by one uniform treatment . Although powerful in conquering disease , they are as pure and harmless as new milk , and may be administered with confidence to the invalid , however weakly from long ill health , who will soon enjoy those delightful symptoms of a return to strong health ,, namely , good appetite , sound sleep , and an increase of animal spirits . To have produced a medicine so benign and mild in its operation and effects , and yet so effectual in searching out and curing disease of however long standing , exhibits on the part of Old Parr deep research and a thorough knowledge of bis subject .
Those who have beea the instruments of restoring this long-lost secret to the world , feel confident , when they make the asfiertioa-r-that none need despair , that if only a fair trial be given , the result will be a restoration to health and happiness . " Thus shall their humble labours merit praise , And future Parrs be blest with honour'd dajs . " The following letter will shew the high estimation these invaluable medicines are held in the city of Lincoln : — " To the Rev . W . Arther , and Proprietors of Parr ' B Life Pills .
"Rev . Sir , and Gentlemen , —I beg to inform you , several persons have acknowledged to me they never experienced so much improvement in their health , since they took Old Parr s Pills ; in particular , a lady , who said she never knew what it was to be without pain in her head ; bat , after taking one box , Bhe has been free from it ever since . " Yon must , I am sure , from the great demand for the pills at my shop , think they are considered here of great value , and I have no doubt many more will be sold when they are generally known ; in fact , some folk begin now to think they will have no occasion to make their wills for the next 90 or 100 yean to come .
