A deputation from, the inhabitants of Tamworth proceeded to Drayton

Manor on Wednesday, and presented to Sir Robert Peel an address of con- dolence on the death of his father. Sir Robert, on behalf of himself and his family, feelingly acknowledged the assurances of sympathy-

"And I pray you to convey my earnest acknowledgmenta to those whom you here represent; assuringyou that, with the same desire to continue those friendly relations which so long existed be- tween yourselves, gentlemen, and my late ffither, it will ever be my constant endeavour to render myself In public estimation not unworthy of his great name."
