are guilty of absurdity the most staring
that can be conceived.
Lord GREY having been reproached
with having gone
beyond his original
intentions, The S
stated this to be
fact He must always have wished to

leagues to
consult; he had to do, if For Sale
possible, that which would go down
with the borough men. It has been
men. It has been
several times stated that the eleventh
that this plan was
ot determined on
hour. I believe that he must have had
infinite difficulty to bring some of his.
colleagues to consent to this measure.
But, at last, he saw that nothing but a
great measure would do, and he resolved
to propose and to carry this measure or
to quit his post. Happily he took this
determination the measure was as
wise as, I trust, it will be effectual. It
satisfies all reasonable men; and as for
the unreasonable, their dissatisfaction is
not of the importance of a straw. To
offer opposition to this measure as not
going far enough, would, in me, be to
discover that restlessness, of which I
have been so unjustly accused. And
therefore, to this measure, as being
efficient for the purposes of good go-
vernment, of securing to me the fruit
of my labours, and of securing to
the working man food and raiment
sufficient for him, I have given my
cordial support to this measure. Lord
GREY, and he alone, is entitled to the
praise of being its author, but praise
is also due to all all classes of the people
who have come to his support, and
enabled him to give effect to his wishes.
I know that great consequences must re-
sult from this measure, which is no more
than the instrument of effecting good;
but that the good will come, no man in
his senses can have any doubt. There
are two classes of persons only who will
suffer from this measure; first, those
who unjustly derive advantages from a
misapplication of the public resources;
and, second, those who, destitute of
talent to command the attention of
sensible men, live by a species of po-
litical quackery, practised on habitual
thoughtlessness, on natural imbecility,

street, London. at my Shop, Boll-court, Fleets LOCUST SEED-Very fine and fresh, at 6s, a pound, received from America about two months ago. For instruc tions relative to sowing of these seeds, for rearing the plants, for making plantations of them, for preparing the land to receive them, for the after cultivation, for the pruning, and for the application of the timber; for all these see my "WOODLANDS;" or Treatise on TIMBER TREES AND UNDERWOOD. 8vo. 14s. SWEDISH TURNIP SEED-Any quantity under 10lbs. 10d: a pound; any quantity above 10lbs. and under 50lbs.94d. a pound; any quantity above 50lbs. 9d. a pound; above 100lbs. 8d. A parcel of seed may be sent to any part of the kingdom; will find proper bags, will send it to any coach or van or wagon, and have it booked at my expense; but the money must be paid at my shop before the seed be sent away; in consideration of which I have made due allowance in the price. If the quantity be small, any Friend can call and get it for a friend in the country; if the quantity be large, it may be sent by me. This seed was growed last year at BarnElm, on ridges six feet apart two rows, a foot apart, on each ridge. The plants were raised from seed given me (of Southwell, Bedfordshire), in 1993. He gave it : me as the finest sort that he had ever seen. I raised some plants (for use) in my garden every year; but, at Barn-Elm I raised a whole field of it, and had 320 bushels of seed upon 13 acres of land. I pledge my word, that at there was not one single turnip in the whole field (which bore seed) not of the true

The selling at the same place as above; the payment in the same manner. This seed was also grown at Barn-Elm farm, the summer before the last. It is a seed which is just as good at ten years old as at one.-The plants were raised in seed-beds in 1828; they were selected, and those of the deepest red planted out in a field of 13 acres, which was admired by all who saw it, as a most even, true and beautiful field of the kind. The crop was very large; and out of it were again selected the plants from which my present stock. of seed was growed; though, indeed, there was little room for selection, where all were so good and true. I got my seed from Mr. Pym, of Reigate, who raised it from plants proceeding from seed that I had given him, which seed I had raised at Worth, in Sussex; and, all the way through, the greatest care had been taken to raise seed from no plant of a - dubious character.➡ This seed, therefore, I warrant as the very best of the kind.

COBBETT'S CORN.-Having to quit my farm at Michaelmas, 1 could have no Corn there; but, at Kensington, I have had the finest crop I ever saw, The Toм TIT has said, that it is “a complete failure," and a great bleating beast, that is now laughed at by all the world, has been bawling about Lancashire, that this corn is "not fit "for a hog to eat, though I want the "poor people to live on it." The


[ocr errors]

answer to poor envious Tommy Tit is given by the beautiful crop that I' have now on sale a as seed. The answer to the malignant bleating beast might be given in one very short word. The great use of this corn is to the labourers. On ten rods of ground I have, this very adverse year, growed eight bushels of shelled corn; and that is sufficient to fat a pig of seven or eight score. Suppose the like comes, on an average, from 20 rods, is not this a great blessing for a labouring man? It is in this light that I have always viewed this corn as of the greatest importauce. I have a room at Bolt Court, hung all over the walls with bunches of it. Those bunches would fat a good large hog; and I never look at it without most anxiously hoping to see the day, when the greater part of English labourers' dwellings will be decorated in the same manner. thing to do is to distribute a little seed amongst the labourers. In the Two-Penny Trash for April, I will give them instructions for the planting and management and application of this corn. I should be glad to cause to be distributed, 200 ears of the corn amongst the labourers of each of the counties of Berks, Bucks, Wilts, Hants, Sussex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex, Cambridge, Lincoln, Huntingdon, and Gloucester, as a mark of my wish to see them once more have bacon to eat instead of accursed potatoes, and 500 ears amongst those of the county of Kent, as a mark of my particular regard for the labourers of that famous county, the first that was trodden by the feet of the saints, and that never was trodden under the hoof of a conqueror. I do not know very well how to accomplish this distribution. If any gentleman, whom I know, in each of the aforesaid counties, will undertake the distribution, I will give him the ears for the purpose, and a Twopenny Trash (containing the instructions) along with. each ear of corn. I SELL THE CORN AT MY SHOP IN BOLT-COURT, at 1s. A BUNCH OF FINE EARS, SIX IN NUMBER; and the Вook, on the cul

READERS OF THE REGISTER. COOPER, J, D. and C. K., Woodeaves, Der

GENTLEMEN frequently write to me to complain of the irregularity in receiving the Register, and for the sending of it to different places.

I beg leave to inform them that I do not sell the Register except to the newsmen in London and to individuals who come to the office: and that I do not know who supplies any one gentleman in the whole country, whether in London or not; and therefore cannot do anything in consequence of such applications to me. It is the newsmen who supply the Register to individuals; and to them the applications ought to be made. I always feel much mortified when I receive complaints of this sort, because it is wholly out of my power to do anything in the way of affording redress.

THE HISTORY OF GEORGE IV., No. 4, is published this day, in the book form; but those who take the Register will please to observe that it will be published also in the Register next week or the week after.

TWOPENNY TRASH, No. 10, is also published in the book form, price twopence each; or, 12s. a hundred, and for three hundred taken at once, 11s.
