LokN d CITY. The Conservative Association for the City of London
have, upon four candidates to represent the City in Parliament, and have issued circulars to that effect, with a blank envelope enclosed for-the individuals addressed to return their pledges of support. The four candidates are Mr. George Lyall, Mr. John Masterman, Mr. John Pirie, Mr. Wolverley Attwood. The circular is signed by Mr. _Russell Ellice.
The Morning Chronicle contradicts on authority the statement of the Times that Mr. Pattison intends to retire.
The requisition to Lord John Russell was presented on Thursday. The Standard says that Lord John did not return a definite answer to the deputation who presented it.
MARYLEBONE. Mr. G. A Young has challenged Commodore Napier to submit their conflicting claims to a public meeting of Liberal electors, and offers to withdraw if a majority of the meeting should think the Commodore the more eligible candidate. To this mode of adjusting the dispute the Commodore demurs, on the ground that it would be impossible to exclude non-electors and Tories from a public meeting. A preliminary ballot was rejected, because electors who had never voted, and who might be admitted to ballot, might ultimately turn out to be Tories. Sir Charles Napier's friends, however, have agreed to settle the question, by sending round persons accredited by both parties, to take lists at the houses of the electors of those who will support either candidate ; the one shown to be in a minority to retire. Sir James Ha- milton has accepted the invitation of the Tories to stand with Mr. Bond Cabbell.
Sir James Hamilton and Mr. Bond Cabbell attended a meeting of the electors on Wednesday. Mr. H. T. Hope was their chairman ; and they were supported by Sir James Cockburn and other friends. Their speeches, of the regular Church-and-state order, were not remarkable:
Cabbell's was very commonplace; pd. Sir James's was only not
so because it was uncommonly feeble. However, he craved indulgence- on account of his rawness.
TOWER HAMLETS. Colonel Fox, who stands in the room of Dr- Lushington, met the electors in the Court-house, on Wednesday. In his speech, and in reply to divers queries, he professed himself a friend: to religious liberty in its broadest and most comprehensive interpreta- tion, and against all civil disabilities on account of creed ; willing " to concede to the people every. privilege to which they were entitled ac- cording to the ancient spirit of the constitution " ; opposed to any tax. at all upon grain, but for a gradual abolition of the impost ; of opinion that all Europe should be as one country in the interchange of commo- dites ; that every church should be paid by those who attend it, but that alteration of the law was a matter of time and thought ; that the Poor-law was not a failure, though he would remedy defects ; and he declared himself neutral on the Ballot. He had no wish to go into Parliament with a bundle of pledges under his arm. There was a con- siderable muster of Chartists, who wanted to draw the Colonel out on the subject of Universal Suffrage, Ballot, and short Parliaments ; but he was not very tractable. An amendment was proposed on the reso- lution to support him, declaring him not a fit and proper candidate ; but the original resolution was carried.
The preceding account is abridged from another paper. A corre- spondent tells us, that when the amendment was proposed, some of the Whig party created such a disturbance by their indecent interruption„ that no one could tell what he was voting for, and there is reason to be- lieve that some voted against the amendment which they intended to support. The disgust consequent upon this conduct has induced some influential electors to seek for another candidate ; and Mr. T. P. E.. Thompson, a son of Colonel Thompson, and a promising young barris- ter, sincere and zealous in politics, has consented to stand.
WESTMINSTER. Mr. Leader and Sir De Lacy Evans are in commu- nication with the Westminster Reform Society ; and active steps are in progress to secure their reelection.

The Reform Club of the place have agreed to support none but a Free-trader, have invited Mr. Fleetwood Wells, and have opened a subscription to pay the expenses of the election. There is a report prevalent, says the Morning Chronicle; that Mr. Alcock will come forward; and in that case Mr. Wells would coalesce with him.
BANBURY. Mr. Vincent, the Chartist, has offered himself to the choice of the electors.
BATH. Lord Duncan has consented to stand with Mr. Roebuck, as the second Liberal candidate. He joined his fellow candidate last week.
Mr. Roebuck and Lord Duncan attended together at a meeting of the Liberal electors in the Guildhall, on Monday. The building was thronged to suffocation ; and the greatest unanimity prevailed.
BEDFORD COUNTY. Lord Charles Russell has issued an address sig- nifying his intention of resigning his seat for the county in the event of a dissolution. The reason he assigns for this course is, that he differs in opinion with a great portion of his constituents on the Corn-laws; and therefore thinks that his political connexion with them should cease. A Conservative, says the Northampton Herald, will be put for- ward in the person of W. Astell, Esq., of Everton House, many years a Director of the East India Company.
BIRMINGHAM. Owing to some " peculiar and popular plan," as it is called by the Times, no names of Tory candidates are yet fixed upon to oppose Mr. Muntz and Mr. Scholefield ; but Mr. Richard Spooner, an Anti-Poor-law man and Currency-doctor, is the favourite of the party ; and Mr. W. C. Alston, Mr. Whateley, Mr. Stapleton, Mr. Barker, and Mr. James Taylor the banker, are all mentioned for his coadjutor.
BOLTON. Mr. Cobden having accepted the requisition from Stock- port, does not stand for Bolton ; the only candidate, therefore, in the field is Mr. Ainsworth. Mr. Bolling, it is said, will retire, and two Conservatives will be brought forward.

Among Mr. Howard's Committee are Lord Leveson, the Honourable H. H. Tracey, who was unseated for Bridgnorth on a point of form, and Mr. Wolryche Whitmore. Mr. Wolryche Whitmore, says the Globe, has determined to give scope to his Free Trade opinions at this important crisis; having hitherto deferred to the opposite opinions of his relatives.
BRISTOL. The correspondent of the Brighton Gazette names other candidates besides Sir James Graham ; Mr. Herries, Mr. Tindal Bruce, and Mr. Baillie, son of Colonel Hughe Duncan Baillie, the Member for Honiton. The last is supposed to be the candidate selected. The Times names Mr. C. Blisset as the second Tory candidate; but fears that Mr. F. H.

Mr. Frederick North, who has been invited to stand as a Liberal, re- fuses to give any pledges ; avows himself in favour of the Government proposals as to sugar and timber ; but is less distinct with respect to the -Corn-laws : he thinks all corn-laws bad "in the abstract," but will "not easily adopt the experimental policy of legislation on a nation's bread" ; and he will not pledge himself to oppose Sir Robert Peel. Neither party seems to be caught by Mr. North's trimming professions. Mr. Planta, the old Tory Member, is canvassing.
HERTFORD COUNTY. Mr. Hale has declined to stand for the Tories, -on account of ill health. The Honourable Dudley Ryder has con- sented; and at a meeting.of the Tories on the 3d, a subscription of 10,0001. was made to return him free of expense ; one gentleman sub- scribing 3,0001.

He spoke with great confidence of defeating the Liberal candidate, Mr. Rennie.

WORCESTER. In mentioning the issue of Mr. Bailey's address on offering himself again to his constituents, the Worcester Journal says, " His colleague has not yet been confidently selected from among the miscellaneous group of candidates which the Whig-Radicals have pro- duced. It is however reported, that Sir William Molesworth contem- plates the honour of being put in nomination by that party. Mr. Hardy, the Free-trading opponent of Corn-laws and Church-rates, has given way at his approach ; and the contest will now most probably rest between the Solicitor-General and Sir William."
YORK. Mr. Barkley, the Radical candidate, has retired. In, an address published by him on Saturday lust he, says- " Having consented to refer the matters urged by certain of my friends in this city to induce me not to contest its representation on the present occa- sion, 1 feel bound by the decision to retire. But I must state, that I made a preliminary stipulation as to the monies lately distributed in York, and have received a personal assurance, in which I have full confidence, that the pay- ment would have been made independent of the interests of any candidate. I have also received an explanation disclaiming any intention of imputing to me, directly or indirectly, any approval of such distribution of money." The money here alluded to is two sovereigns, which had been given to such of the freemen who voted some years ago for the Honourable E. R. Petre as are now in the Liberal interest. It is generally under- stood that the referee was Mr. Joseph Hume, who was consulted on his recent visit to Leeds.

BELFAST. Mr. Emerson Tennent, the Tory Member, has invited Mr. J. D. Ross, the new Liberal candidate, to a public discussion of the 'Budget propositions, " without the heat or excitement of a political discussion."

NEWRY. Sir John Milleya Doyle Is opposed by Mr. Dixon, who stood'for Kinsale in 1834. Mr. Dixon, to judge from his speech at a meeting of electors, is an earnest and hearty Reformer. Here is an extract : speaking of the questions of the day, he said- " These are questions not between the Whig and the Tory, or the Radical and the Whig ; but they form a long-standing and fearful account to be settled between the man who has money and the man who has none—between the owner of the soil and the eater of its produce. But, my friends, it never will be settled till you succeed in transfusing a larger portion of popular spirit into the Commons House. Whigs and Radicals, as well as Tories, are but men. To this end, you had better begin at the beginning, and not dream of erecting the superstructure till you have laid the foundation. Away, say I, with all property qualifications whatever, either for the elector or the elected. The suffrage must be coextensive with taxation; or rather, every man who haw attained the age of twenty-one, and who owns ' a local habitation or a name,' by means of which he can be registered and identified, must have a vote ; which vote must be given on the principle of the Ballot. And as the atmosphere of a certain Ihmourable House has a remarkable effect on the political, and indeed on the moral constitution, and because, moreover, 'short reckonings make long friends,' it should be imperative on your representatives to render to their respective constituencies an account of their stewardship at least once in three years ; or, in other words, von must insist on Triennial Parliaments."
After this speech, an agent of Sir John Doyle said that his employer went further than Mr. Dixon. He admitted that he alluded to the sub- ject of Repeal of the Union ; but refused to say distinctly that Sir John was a Repealer. Great uproar took place ; the non-electors were voted out of the room ; and after much discussion, the meeting separated without coming to any determination.
