Complete in one Vol ., neatly Bound in Cloth , A PRACTICAL "WORK OS SMALL FARMS . Price T wo Shillings and Sixpence . BY FEARGCS o ' COXXOH , ESQ . ' rriDE desire of the author has been to furnish a valu-X aWe compendium al such a price as would enable every working man to become possessed of it . It contains all the practical instructions , together with Plates , describing Farm-house , Offices , Tank , Parm-vard , ic . ; with particular information requisite for carrying out all "the operations . XB . —The above work may still be procured in numbers , price 6 d . each . " I have , within the last ferr months , risited everjr part of Prance , and I declare that I hare seen more misery in one street in Dublin than in all France ; tlie people are well clad , weU fed , and merry : they are aU employed on Small Fabms of tfeir own , or on equitable takings r—Tide Lord Cloncurry ' s Zetter in Stunting Cftronicfe , Oct . 5 th , 1 S 43 . Those persons desirous of bettering their condition and of becoming "Independent labourers , " by entering the "Productive-labour" Market , will do well to read "A Practical Work on Small Farms , " by F £ iBCtJ 5 O'CoSSOi , Esq . It contains much useful information , invaluable to the parties for whom it was written ; and Old Fanners will find many useful lessons in the new system of husbandrv , which they have yet to learn . The work displays great practical knowledge , and is Written SO fliat any one who reads may understand . 3 Ir . O'Connor seems not to have used either the old or ' new nomenclature' in this trork ; he has not buried his meaning in chemical technicalities , which very few understand , but which most miters on agriculture seem so desirous of using . Perhaps they do not understand the practice of Farming so well as the theory ; and , therefore , mystify that which they cannot explain , hy some long chemical term , winch the plain reader may pass over as a "hard tcord , " hard to pronounce , and harder to understand when it is pronounced . The reader will find that Mr . O'Connor has avoided all those hard names , and suited the language to the toiling labourer , whose college is generally the workshop , or , at best , the Sunday School . Though the work is written for holders of Small Farms , yet no Allotment Tennant ought to be without it ; the valuable information it contains respecting tilling and cropping is alike useful toalL "—Eztrud from a Farmer ' s Letter .

" The various forms of bodily and mental weakness , incapacity , suffering , and disease , faithfully delineated in this cautiously written and practical work , are almost unknown , generally misunderstood , and treated on pr inciples correspondingly erroneous and superficial , by the present race of medical practitioners . Hence the necessity for the publication of a timely safeguard , a silent yet friendly monitor ; or , where debility has made threatening inroads , the means of escape aud the certainty of restoration , The evils to which the book adverts are extensive and identical in their secret and hidden origin , and there are none to whom , as parents , guardians , heads of families , 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 family physician , but they require for their safe management the exclusive study of a life entirely abstracted from the routine of general practice , and ( as in other departments of the profession ) attentively concentrated in the daily and long-continued observation requisite for the 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 . " —The Planet . "The best of all friends is the Professional Friend , and in no shape can he he consulted with greater safety and secrecy than in ' Lueas on Manly Vigour . ' The initiation into vicious . indulgence—its progress—its results in both sexes , are g ' iven with faithful , but alas ! for human nature , with afflicting truth . However , the authors have not exposed the evil without affording a remedy . It shows how' Jfanly Vj ^ our temporarily impairod , 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 fellowman , can regain the vigour of health and moral courage . The work is written In a concise and perspicuous Stylo , displaying how often fond parents are deceived by the outward physical appearance of their youthful offspring ; how tlie 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 Weekly 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 hi any instance where the public , aud not the isolated and exclusive mem * bers 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 technicality in which tho science * of medicine has hitherto shrouded its own ignorance . The work before us treats of subjects we believe generally , yet very strangely , neglected by the medical attendant , and requiring doubtlessly ( as in operative midwifery and the surgery of the eye ) an entire devotedncss 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 well-told appeal to reason , a permanent blessing . It is wyitten hi a eleav intelligible style , and is evidently tho production of a mind long and practically conversant with i tlie diseases of the most delicate division of the human ; organization .

IMPORTANT DISCUSSION ON FREE TRADE AT ROTHERHAM . It was lately mentioned in the Star that the visit of the " League" to Rotherham had been a " great ' failure , notwithstanding the seductive eloquence of the hon . member for Stockport . In order to " keep appearances , " and if possible prevent the public from getting into the secret , Mr . Falvey , deoidedly 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 Corn Exchange for the occasion , but both places were refused : and on Friday placards appeared announcing that Mr . Falvey would deliver two lectures on Friday and Saturday ,
in the large room of the Three Cranes Inn . As the whole of the proceedings had been conducted with the greatest secrecy , and the placards not appearing till late in the day , the Chartists were taken by surpr ise , not having time to make arrangements for a discussion in defence of their principles if it should become necessary . However , several attended the lecture as a corps of observation . At seven o ' clock Mr . Falvey commenced his address , the room not being half full ; he said his lecture that night would be on the agricultural part of the question , and on the following night on the manufacturing part . He then , at greath length , gave a history of the various enactments respecting the admission of foreign corn , contending that as they had failed in efl ' ecting the object their promoters had in view , that of keeping up prices to a certain rate , they ought to be repealed . Alter the usual denunciation of the landlords , which
constitutes a considerable portion of the stock-intvadc of the League lecturers , Mr Falvey challenged discussion , saying lie was prepared to meet any man on the following evening . , Mr . Lessons , a Chartist : " I accept your challenge , and will find a man to discuss with you . " Mr l < alvey : "Very well ; I shall be happy to sec him . " Several persons in the meeting cried out- who is he ? let us know his name . " Mr . Lessons : it is Mr . West , of Sheffield ; I dare say Mr . Falvey knows him well . " Mr . Falvey : " 0 yes ; I have met Mi-. "West several times ; and since he 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 were very busy in mustering their forces ; and we havo . Wn nrc ' diblvinformed that Mr . Badger , jim .,
went round to the different factories , requesting the foremen to induce their hands to attend and ' put down the C hartists . " Shortly after seven o clock Mr Machin was called to the chair , who opened the business by observing that he should acf with the strictest impartiality , and secure for all parties fanplay . All he had to request was , that the various speakers would confine themselves to the question , and not indulge in personalities or individual recriminations . He then introduced Mr . Falvey , who commenced by observing that last ' evening he had laid before them the history of the Corn Laws , and , he thought , clearly proved that they were unjusHn principle , and that to remove a positive injustice must be a positive good . Those laws were enacted at tlienointof the bayonet , and four years afterwards
the bloody massacre of Peterloo was perpetrated by the bread-taxers on the defenceless thousands who were assembled to petition for their 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 stove 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 the monopolists , would , no doubt , explain it . They tell us that we ought to have no connexion with foreigners ; but what can we do without foreigners ? Mi . 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 evon 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 an extension of the home trade ? and how are we to judge of the merits of any question but by inductive reasoning ; from known facts . Lot these bawlers for freedom look at America . There the democrats have elected Polk as President , because he was for Free Trade . And if wo looked back to the conduct of the ' great leaders of Radicalism in England , Cartwright , and Hunt , and Cobhett , they all opposed the accursed Corn Laws ! hut of late a race of mushroom Radicalscalling 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 their marriage settlements ; and Mr . "West was there that night to enable them to do so . The Chartists had made themselves the most contemptible party that ever appeared , b y their divisions , their bitter hatreds , and denunciations of each other : and could they believe that a pai'ty torn to pieces by faction could effect any change , or induce any one to place confidence in their movements ? They were powerless , except now and then to offer a punv opposition to the League . But even that was
fast fading away . The League 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 vto 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 wage ' s have been reduced . " ) He would not take isolated cases , but he would take the sense of the meeting on the subject .
Mr . West ; In that case I propose that no person vote on the question but those who are actual workers and receive wages . " Mr . Falvey assented ; and this had the effect of making the gentlemen keep their hands in their pockets . Mr . Falvey then put the question : <( All who arc 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 . Mr . 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 fair
criterion . Mr . Falvey persisted in putting his motion in his own way ; and after three trials , during which he could only get six persons to vote with him , he gave up the contest in despair . He continued : We have got this fact , that during the last . forty years wages have been reduced ; but we had not Free Trade then . The reduction was under a system of monopoly ; under Mi-. 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 JCom . Laws , which crippled commerce , and would not allow them to exchange the produce of labour for what foreigners could give us m return . With an increasing population , if the people were not employed on the land , how could we find 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 fail" share . ' The rent of the landowners must come down ; for Mr . M'Gregor 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 Mi . West , who saicjgthat having been invited to attend the meeting , in consequence of Mr . Falvey ' 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 the question , had indulged in such gross personal attacks on the Chartists as a body , on the Northern Star , on Feargus O'Connor , and on himself . He knew that was not Mr . Falvey's usual manner ; and therefore he must attribute it to his ( Mi . West ' s ) appearance ; but whatever the cause , it argued a lack of argument , and was an unworthy . attempt to excite their 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 question of debate , they would allow him briefly to reply to the slanders that had been uttered . Mr . Falvey had insinuated that he ( Mr . West ) was amushroom Radical ; and that he was an advocate for the landlord . This i ;
lie ( Mr . Falvey ) knew to be untrue ; for Jus 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 , lie challenged Mr . Falvey to show one instance in which he had not advocated the principles of truth and justice , and struggled , under odium and persecution , on the side of the toiling millions . Mi * . Falvey had alluded to the dissensions among some portions of the Chartist body , in order to throw odium on the principles of the Charter . No one regretted their dissensions more than he ( Mr . West ) did ; but there had been a separating of the 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 as powerless' . ' . ! ' ' ' ' I
except for mischief— they were feared by all nostrumniongers ; who would not dare to meet the public lest the " disunited Chartists" should appear , and scatter to the winds the humbug and delusion with which they sought to deceive the people . Mi . O'Connor had been charged with inconsistency , because he voted against an unconditional Repeal of the Corft Laws when in the House of Commons ; and still continued to maintain the same ground . That specimen of logic he would leave Mr . Falvey to explain as best he could . But the crowning charge was the removal of the Northern Star to London ! That was not to be easily forgiven . Monstrous impudence that the organ of Labour should take its stand , side by side , with the organ of the League—and the prostitute press-gang of Both Whig and Tory ! But there it was ! That was a ereat J ] ' ' '
fact ; and , however bitter the potion , swallow it the League must ; and , as they said in Yorkshire—grin and abide . ( Tremendous cheering . ) When the League removed the Anti-Bread Tax Cirailar to London , no one brought that as a charge against them . But they changed its name , and the Sfcwhadnot been changed . Ah , there was the rub ! They hated the name 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 oppressed and insulted millions . It had cost the Government hundreds of thousands of pounds to put down one Northern Star ; and no doubt but many of Mr . Falvejr ' s employers would gladly subscribe their thousands if they could sink the existing Star
hpneaththe political horizon : but while it continued the fearless advocate of the rights of man , it would blaze with redoubled splendour , illuminating the minds of tlie toiling masses , and cheering them on their mighty and glorious struggle for their country's and Labour's emancipation . ( Loud cheers . ) And now , continued-Mr . West , let us examine some of the statements which Mr . Falvey intended as arguments in favour of Free Trade . He says that all things in England owe their existence to foreigners except the crab-apple and the sloe ; that the arts and sciences were cradled abroad ; and that we are yearly importing fresh additions . Well , that admission was of some worth . It used to be the cry , that foreigners had not skill and ingenuity to compete with Englishmen ; that we were destined by God to be the
" workshop of the world . " If foreigners were formerly so capable of inventing and improving , arc weTo suppose that the present race has degenerated from then- fathers , or that all the brains have taken flight from those lands , and settled n the craniums of En glishmen , but more particularly m those ot the Anti-Corn Law League ? The Chartists always conended that foreigners had the capability to manufacture for themselves , and would always do so when thev deemed it advantageous to themselves , ltoey were doing so now ; and the only chance the manufacturers of this country have of competing with them is by underselling them ; and he ( Mr . West ) was there that night to prove , that tha ^ couW not be effected but by reducing wages . ( Cheer •) ^ three great elements in production—tneiaw
were material ; the capital' invested in machinery , &c . ; and the wages of labour ; and . it was on y in one or more of those that a " cheapening" could bo effected , so as to enable us successfully to compete with 10-rei < mcrs . In the raw material foreigners had the decided advantage , for they were the growers ol xt ; of silk , cotton , and a great portion of the w ool . 1 lity had it on the spot , whilst we had to import it , and pay the cost of freight and carnage ; 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 it it were not so , foreigners have the advantage in their water power , the cheapest of all motive power . The only other the of labour and he
stem remaining was wages ; chalkmned Mr . Falvcy , or any other man m England , to show how a " " cheapening , " so as to enable us to undersell foreigners , could be effected but bv a reduction of wages . But Mr . Falvey says , _ " it wages must come down , bring down the price of food to tlie price of labour . " Will the adoption of Free Iradc principles do that ? No ! and Mr . Falvey know it . All the great authorities of the League—Mr . Greg , Mr . Cobden , Mr . Whitstone , Mr . Acland , cum midtis aliis—all agreed that the effect of Com 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-clmstian , and murderous to tax the bread of the people of this country , but quite a
matter of '' policy" to make it dear to the foreigners Was ever humbug so barefaced as that ? Mr . Falvey said the rent 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 in his evidence before the Import Duties Committee , when [ asked if a repeal of the Com Laws would cause rents to fail ? He said no ; on the contrary , I think the rents of land xvould greatly increase . Pretty way that of bringing down vents , if Mr . M'Gregor was to be taken as an authority . Mi \ Falvey talked a great deal about wages , and said , though wages had fallen during the last forty years , that was under a system of protection , and not under had itlie
Free Trade , because we have not . ( Mr . West ) denied that the working ehissos had " protection . " It was for the 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 our own country to bestow tnebenenefits onthe foreigner ; reducing the wages of labour to cheapen the 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 fundholders , 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 oi some of the benefits to be derived from Free Trade ; for as yet he had most guardedly avoided the subject . Mr . Falvey said wages wore 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 the League— ' ' [ cheap bread ! " Asa 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 a . 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 : I-dispute that authority ; it is a table without a name to it , and might be fabricated by Mr . West or his Mend 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 : I dispute Mr . Marshall as an authority ; he is not considered one .
Mr . West : It was the first time that he had heard the authority of that man disputed ; but Mr . Falvey said he 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 they would be able to judge between him and Mr . Falvey . Mr . Marshall was engaged by the Whig Government to make ' a compilation of 700 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 of the statistical department of the Board
of Trade ; but it was 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 of the 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 , he 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 which M 1 . Falvey be-Hunt
longed . Mr . Falvey claimed . Oartwright , , and Cobbett , as belonging to his school ; but the world knew that those great men and " nobles of nature" were advocates of the principles of the Charter . The massacre of Peterloo was perpetrated on those who met to petition for Universal Suffrage , Vote by 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 of the 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 tlv principles of the men , whose names they wished to pirate to serve their own selfish purpose ? Mr . F alvey had denounced the landlords ; butthe question £ as not to be decided by such means . Were lie ( Mr . West ) inclined to recriminate , he could a tale unfold of the robbery , oppression , and absolute murder , perpetrated by the manufacturers and their systema tale that would 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 their differences and united together for the purpose of keeping the poor man down . In conclusion , he called on Mr . Falvey to point out some of the benefits
that would arise from the adoption of principles of Free Trade . Mr . West sat down amid enthusiastic applause . Mr . Falvey : Mr . West has told you that I insinuated he was an advocate for the 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 ibr discussion ? The Chairman ; The question is , "Whether Free Trade would be beneficial or injurions , " and my opinion is that Mr . Falvey should not introduce extraneous matter . Mr . Falvey : I am asked to point out the benefits of Free Trade . 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 his "threeelements , " and challenges me to prove how we can
undersell foreigners but by falling upon wages . There are other ways . We pay twenty shillings a quarter on wheat ; if that was abolished it would be absorbed in wages and profits , and would enable us to undersell them . It was the same with sugar and other things . In Switzerland they had Free Trade , and they found it to work well . In America the democracy were in favour of it , as proved by the election of Mr . Polk ; a fact Mr . West had not noticed . The duty on wool had been abolished , but the price had risen . These are facts ; let Mr . West' reply to them . Mr . West had not told 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 fully than he had dowfi .
Mr . West . Mr . Falvey has charged me with being an advocate of the landlords , because in the discussion at Blackburn I did not introduce the Charter ; but he has not the honcstv to tell you that he positively refused to hold the- discussioii it I mentioned the Charter ! So much for his
honesty . Mr . Falvey has told vou that if thef duty on com and sugar were repealed , we could the ^ i undersell the foreigners , because the raw material would be cheaper . Does he mean , that if we import ] corn and sugar , that it will change into cottons , woolfons , and silks to be exported ? For that is his argument ,. Mr . Falvey said , tliey had Free Trade in Switzerland ; but he forgot to tell you that they had Universal Suffrage there also . ( Cheers . ) Mr . Falvey had referred . to the election of Mr . Polk in America ; but he forgot " to tell you that it was the " Agrarian League "the Chartists of America , who arc struggling to make the public lands public property—that secured his election ; a party who eared little about the fudge-Ography of Free Trade . They were told that the duty on wool had been repealed , without depreciation
in price ; and that , therefore , Free Trade must be a o-ood thing : but Alderman Bateson , of Leeds , had published a state of tlie transfer of our woollen trade to the continent . In 1 S 24 , the export duty on British wool was removed , and from 182-1 to 1840 , the exports had increased from nothing in 1824 , to 4 , 81 O , 3 S 7 lbs ., in 1840 ; while the exports of British woollen cloths , of all sorts , had decreased from 507 , 317 pieces in 1824 , to 258 , 962 , in 1 S 40 ; and in Vervier and Aix-La-Chapclle , where we exported most of our wool , iu 1840 they manufactured 70 , 283 pieces more than England exported to all the world . Let Mr . Falvey note those tacts . Ale were told the Corn Laws produced all the evil in the country ; but would Mr . Falvcy explain one factthat under the Com Laws we had bad trade and good trade , cheap provisions and dear provisions , higher . 1 U ... A .. timr . ni . OllA OflUSP . fffllllU llOt
YIVOduce these opposite effects . But an abundant harvest had made trade good—a proof , that if we cultivated our own soil we need not depend on the caprice of foreigners . As Mr . Falvey had promised to visit them a » ain , he would assure them that when he did come ho would find him ( Mr . West ) there also . ( Loud cheers . ) They had heanl the arguments on both sides , as far as time would permit , and when he ( Mr . West ) next came among them , after they had calmly reflected on what they had heard , he would ask for their opinion . He had to thank them for the fair play they had shewn , and the attention with which they had heard him . —A vote of thanks was carried by acclamation to the chairman , and thus ended one of the most important meetings ever held in llotherham . Chartism has received a great impulse . Too much praise cannot be given to the brave men of Rotherhani f ' 01 their conduct .
LONDON . Metropolitan District Council , 1 , Tumagamlane , Skinner-street , December 29 th . —Mr . Simpson in the Chair . —Several members having delivered m their reports respecting the projected Duncombe procession , Mr . T . M . Wheeler said communications of great importance had been received from some of the Trades . He , therefore , would suggest the propriety of suspending all operations as regarded the Duncombe procession for a short time , in order that the Trades might have sufficient time to perfect their arrangements . The Secretary also read a letter from
Mr . T . Barratt , Secretary to the Associated 'trades of London , breathing the best spirit towards Mr . Duncombe , and promising to bring the matter officially before the Associated Trades at their next meeting . Mr . Pattenden moved , "That the Committee forgettiHg up the Duncombe procession suspend their operations for the present , m accordance with the suggestion of Mr . Wheeler . " The motion was seconded by Mr . Stallwood , and carried unanimously . The Committee for getting up the late Soiree reported progress , and steps having t > een taken to effect an immediate settlement of that matter , the Council adjourned . NORTHAMPTON . Grakd Chartist Tea Party and Ball . —The Chartists of this town held a Tea Party and Ball on Friday , December 27 th , in the large room at the Saracen ' s Head Inn . The room was inconveniently crowded . After the good things of life had been disposed of , that sterling Chartist , Mr . Geo . Watson , was iinanimously called to the chair , and opened the meeting in a clever and appropriate speech , which was warmly responded to by the assembly . The chairman then proposed the following sentiment , " The People , the legitimate source of all power ; may they speedily obtain their just rights through the enactment ot the People ' s Charter . " Mr . Gammage responded to the sentiment , and was loudly applauded . The next sentiment was , " T . S . Duncombe , Esq ., M . P . F . O'Connor , Esq . ; Dr . P . M . M'Douall ; James Lcagh ; James Bronterre O'Brien . Esq . ; and all who honestly advocate the people ' s cause : may they live to see
their exertions rewarded by the success of tlie cause for which they have so arduously struggled . " Mr . Henley responded to the sentiment in aa eloquent speech . 3 rd sentiment , "Frost , Williams , Jones , and Ellis : may they speedily be restored to their families and their homes . " Mr . Hollowell responded . 4 th sentiment , "TheDemocratic Press : may it be a beacon light to guide tho people on the path to freedom . " Mr . Crawford responded in a sound Democratic speech , in which he ably shewed the advantage of an unshackled press . 6 th sentiment , " The immortal memories of Tell , Wallace , Washington , Einmett , Fitzgerald , Hampden , Pirn , Cartwright , Hunt , Cobbett , Beaumont , Taylor , and all who have straggled and died in the cause of liberty . '' Mr . Mundy responded to the sentiment . 6 th sentiment , " The Ladies : may they be found hearty co-operators in the political and social regeneration of our country . " Mr . Gammage responded . Dancing then commenced which was kept up till a late heur .
BRADFORD . Working Men ' s Movements . —Perhaps there is not a town in England where the operatives have a better knowledge of the cause of their degra « dation than they have here ; but , by some means it is found hard to create as good an organization among them as ought to exist ; and although Chartism is the darling thenic of the masses , scarcely one in fifty are enrolled members . What is the cause ? The working men are disgusted with the trickery , shuffling , and empty-headed vanity of some would-be leaders , who remained in their ranks just long enough to create discord and division by endless quarrels and bickerings . At length , finding
they could not succeed in foisting themselves and their little nostrums on the people , they vented their spleen on what they term the O'Connorites , and set up as Free Traders . Now that the intellectuals are gone , the organization improves weekly . Lectures are delivered at Butterworth ' s Buildings on Sunday evenings , which begin to draw public attention , and tend to add to the numbers of tlie enrolled ; and it is shortly intended to engage one of the public halls for the use of the Chartist body . Eizubb ' s " TnoncAL Emigration Society" Lib gained a large accession to its numbers here , over one hundred shares being taken up , the main part b y Chartists . The first instalment , amounting to £ 60 , waa paid up this week ,
TO THE CHARTISTS OF NORTH 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 entombed his body and separated him from those who are struggling for the principles which the dungeon ' s gloom will not have estranged him from . No , brethren , we venture to predict that he will return from his dungeon with a stronger impress on his mind in favour of the cause he so patriotically embarked in , and for which he has suffered . Believing that those principles are still held dear by you , and believing that you have a lively hope of their realization , —a hope that the unhallowed touch
of tyranny cannot extinguish , —we venture to solicit your aid in providing a suitablo testimonial of our affections towards the persecuted sufferer , not only for supplying his immediate wants , but to prevent the opposers of our glorious principles , those who fatten and luxuriate in the sunshine of class legislation , —from reproaching us with ingratitude and indifference to those wholiave suffered for advocating the cause we are mutuall y embarked in . To attain the above desirable object , a " Testimonial Committee" has been formed in Burnley , who are collecting subscriptions for the purpose of
providing Mr . Tattersall with a good suit of clothes , and otherwise to give to him marks of esteem ; and believing that the Chartists of North Lancashire will 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 , we are desirous that parties collecting subscriptions should lose no time in transmitting the same to the Secretary , together with the names of the subscribers , that the same may be laid before Mr . Tattci-saUfor his inspection as early as possible after his release , which will be on the morning of the 15 th February , 1845 .
Communications and subscriptions should be transmitted to the Secretary of the Committee , Mr . John Place , Winn Hill , Burnley . Signed on behalf of the " Testimonial Committee , " John Place , Secretary . John Heap . Treasurer .
