COBBETT AND CHELTENHAM.—The editor of the Political Register wrote a description of Chel- tenham. in his gentle way, in 1826, which he ended by stating, that not a farthing of his money should be spent in that "wen." A few days ago, he wished to pronounce a lecture in the town; but some good-na•lred friend, who recollected the article, inter( SA, and he could not obtain a place. He was atter his departure burnt in effigy; and a correspondent of the Times says he would have been roughly handled, had his retreat not been both secret and expeditious.
