The Reformers of Edinburgh assembled on Friday the 27th, and petitioned the House of Commons to reject the Lyndhurst "amend- 'Dents." In the course of a few hours, this petition received upwards of 12,400 signatures.

There was a great meeting at Glasgow, on Monday, for the same purpose. The speakers handled the Lords very roughly; denounced their bill as " atrocious," and alluded in tolerably plain language to the " physical force" by which English and Scotch liberty had been se- cured. The people were called upon to "avenge the insulted majesty of their Representatives upon that irresponsible body of men falsely called the Upper House." Such were the terms used by Captain Speirs, late Member for Paisley.
