We learn from the True Sun, that the Government prosecution against that journal is by ex officio information, founded on the follow ing passages
" It (meaning the said House of Commons) stands in all its unseemliness before us —right in our path—shocking us with its disgusting and loathsome brutality of aspect, and resolved not to crawl an inch out of our way. We must make it. It must move forward. The hideous thing cannot be suffered to squat where it does. If we cannot stir it, we must leap over it (meaning the said House of Commons), at all hazards. We cannot staud here, looking at it day after day, the sight is too sickening, the creature (meaning the said House of Commons) is too venomous—its attitude is too revoltingly ugly. Neither can we descend the precipice which we have scaled, and sink again Into the slough of despond. No, we must go on at any rate, or be starved.

It has decided that the amount which every man is called upon to pay to government shall not be regulated according to his property. What then remains to be dons? The house (meaning the said House of Commons) has rescinded its own resolution of Friday—the people must rescind the resolution of the House of Tuesday—they must refuse to pay what they can only pay at the expense of their common ruin. The refusal to pay taxes a few months ago resented the wretched Whigs in power ; a second refusal will unseat them. The Whig Government has taken the advantage or such a step, let it take the adverse consequences of it — let the people, for once, avail themselves of the example of a lord—let them look for precedents in an emergency even among the Peerage—let them do as Lord Milton did, and resist the tax.catherer—and above all things, let the men of the Metropolis be the first to follow the Aristocratic example, by refusing to submit longer to the infamous inequality and injustice of the house and window taxesThe Miuisters themselves have denounced these taxes, let the people quietly proceed to extinguish them (meaning the said taxes) and they will."

Lady Winnington applied, on Thursday, to the Consistory Court, to proceed against her husband for a divorce on the ground of adultery. The Registrar said that a sentence of divorce had already been pronounced between the parties. Lady Winnington said, "There has been a condonation since the sentence was passed, and subsequent adultery committed by my husband. I have not obtained alimony for four years ; and as my husband has had property come to him, I wish to obtain another divorce. I wish a citation to be issued." The Court granted the application.
