The Dundee Chamber of Commerce' at a large meeting of its members held last week, unanimously agreed to strong Free-trade resolutions. The resolutions expressed the regret of the Chamber at the accession to office of a Ministry individually pledged to the adoption of a duty on foreign corn, &c., and "for the protection' or rather for the private in- terest of the landowners of the United Kingdom, to the great injury of the industrious classes " ; and they engaged the Chamber to petition Par- liament, inter ails, "that no measures be allowed to be introduced into the present Parliament except what are absolutely necessary for carrying on the public service."
