Mr. Fox Maule met a large body of his constituents

in the district of Cupar Angus on Thursday week, and addressed them in reference to the principal measures of last session. On the subject of Peerage Reform he said— lie a delicacy in stating his sentiments, connected as be was with Go- vernment, and liable, in what he said, to be misrepresented. He had no hesi- tation in stating, that he was quite sensible of the faults of that House; but he trusted to the effect of public opinion, which had already achieved Catholic Eman- cipation, the repeal of the Test mid Corporation Acts, and even the passing of the Reform Bill, in making a suitable impression on their Lordships at the present crisis.

A vote of thanks and approbation of Mr. Mettle's conduct was passed unanimously.
