I must have more room, and it must be a time of less public interest, for me to give the history of this man. As to the petition, the facts are these!

There, my good fellows of Preston: that's your Cock; that's your" DARLING," called him at Manchester! A greater fool you might have chosen, for there were the lunatic hospitals for you to go get a a representative; if real life afforded you no equal to him as bully and coward, Shakspeare or Ben Jonson might, perhaps, have given you his match in PISTOL or BOBADIL; but as LIAR, your choice sets at defiance all approach towards equality, whether in real life or in fiction. The fault of the choice is, however, not yours: you were deceived; you have done good, however; for you have lifted the senseless cand malignant thing up, that he might be seen by all; and that was what was wanted. Such a thing can live only amidst troubles and strife. In stinct teaches it this; and, therefore, this horrible thing, which really ought not to be called a man, by whose presence in it your beautiful town will never again be disgraced, is raving mad at the prospect of a state of justice and of harmony, which the Reform Bill is so manifestly calculated to produce.

Mr. RUSSEL begins the letter above seeing in THE TIMES of yesterday, referred to thus: "Being in London, and "the most atrocious calumny that ever "was laid before the public, I feel it my "duty immediately to contradict it."
