The procession will have St. James's Park as its starting-point,

and move through Pall Mall, and Waterloo Place, and Piccadilly towards its destination, a rather roundabout route, adopted in order that the Clubmen, who rule England, should have a full oppor- tunity of seeing the array, the numbers, and the discipline of those who desire Reform. Mr. George Potter acts as commander- in-chief, with mounted farriers under him for orderlies, and no less than forty-five great trades will be represented, each of them by many hundreds of men, almost the only great trade unrepre- sented being the Printers. Their society absolutely refused to allow their organization to be impaired by the intrusion of any political question whatever. The orders will be given by bugle calls, and the managers have, we believe, military advice ; but they are hardly yet aware, we fear, of the time their movements will take. They will be hours passing through Piccadilly, and though they start at eleven, will be exceedingly fortunate if they get home before midnight. We trust the managers have provided sufficient bands, or the host, which has not been drilled, will never keep step, and the quicker the marches they are instructed to play the less will be the unavoidable loss of time. The difference between one tune and another often makes a difference of ten minutes in emptying a church.
