Perth election took place on Thursday. The candidates to succeed

the present Lord Panmure were the Honourable Arthur Kinnaird, and Mr. Gilpin, the Quaker publisher of London, whose name is famously identi- fied with the pamphlet quoted by Lord Palmerston in the Militia debate. The numbers were—for Xinnsiird, 325; for Gilpin, 225; majority against the man of Peace, 100.

bfr. Roebuck was at Sheffield yesterday among his constituents ; and made a speech which, commencing against some adverse feeling, mani- fested at the opening of his two main subjects, national defence and na- tional education, ended amidst enthusiastic plaudits, and a resolution of confidence.
