ROBERT LAMPEN, Secretary to the Plymouth District

Committee of the Societies for Promoting Christian Knowledge, and for Building and Enlarging Churches and Chapels;

Samuel Rowe, Secretary and Treasurer of the Plymouth District Committee of the Society for the Propagation of the

Gospel in Foreign Parts; in the name, and at the unanimous desire of a very numerously attended meeting of the Select District Committees of the respective Societies, held at Plymouth, April 29th, 1830.

POLITICAL RETROSPECT.

Domestic. — The king's illness, which had certainly at one period arisen to an alarming height, has considerably abated towards the end of the month; and it may now be hoped that his Majesty will be speedily restored to convalescence, the unfavourable symptoms having somewhat disappeared, and his disease having assumed a mitigated aspect. Means have been adopted by Parliament to release his Majesty from the arduous duty of fixing his sign manual to public documents.

The bill for emancipating the Jews has been thrown out by a majority of sixty-three, not so large a one as the country might wish; but it is thrown out. The constitution is in a manner tacitly declared to be a Christian constitution; for the assertion would doubtless indeed be styled illiberal and bigoted, which should intimate that Popery is an anti-Christian sys-, tem, and its believers idolaters; and that declaration alone is a great point to have gained in the present day.

The other business that has passed through Parliament during the past month has chiefly related to private affairs. The operations of Mexico were brought before the House, but not enlarged upon, all parties agreeing to deprecate any idle interference in the concerns of other nations.

The whole of the spring season has been very favourable to the farmer. The impulse which vegetation received from the mild temperature of March, was prevented from bringing it too forward, by the prevalence of cold north-easterly winds during April, which suited the wheats upon the light lands, so that they present a very healthy and promising appearance. The drying. effects of these winds upon the strong lands was beginning to be severely felt, when the seasonable occurrence of several warm showery days restored the verdure on these soils, and though the nights have been sometimes cold during the month of May, yet the wheats have continued to thrive abundantly. The spring-corn and the grasses have been equally benefited, and have rarely given a more early promise of abundant crops than at the present moment. The country markets have been well supplied, and the deinand has been sufficiently encouraging to the husbandman. We regret to be obliged to state that the home trade in printed goods and silks has been severely injured by the unfortunate illness of our beloved Monarch. The apprehension of a public mourning for several weeks put an entire stop to the consumption of these and some other manufactures. The loss to Manchester alone is computed at one million sterling; what must the amount be when other places are included!

FRANCE.—The expedition to Algiers has failed from Toulon, under the command of General Bourmont, who, as minister of war, holds a responsible situation in the Cabinet. The permanent strength of the ministry must depend very much on the success of this expedition. The Chamber of

Deputies has been dissolved, and the new elections will no doubt be materially influenced by the tidings which may arrive from Algiers. Should General Bourmont prove victorious, as it is most probable he will, the popularity with which a successful war would invest the Cabinet will prove too powerful for the liberal party to contend with. The character of the French nation is too vain, too strongly imbued with the love of show for them not to delight in that semblance of glory which military success, however useless in its end, affords; besides, they are desirous of colonies, and think Barbary would be the very place for one, as it would give them the command of the southern shores of the Mediterranean. For the same reasons, should General Bourmont fail in his enterprise, it will make the Cabinet totter to its foundation. The event is therefore watched by all parties with more than common anxiety.

GREECE.—Prince Leopold has resigned the sovereignty.
