HISTORICAL REGISTER.

POLITICAL JOURNAL.- JUNE 1, 1831. Home Affairs. The progress of the Elections in favor of Reform has been universal. In the English Elections the gain has been variously stated at 95, 191, and 128. The following Tables exhibit in a clear view one of these statements, which if not found accurate on the coming on of the Question, is a close approxi. mation to the truth. This Table exhibits the comparative state of the Representation of England, taker. by Counties, including the Boroughs in each, on the question of Reform, in the late and present Parliaments, with the gain or loss in each County :

95 Members for Reform The County of Northampton has been hotly contested, but the anti-reformers have been beaten, after obstinate efforts.-Cambridge has returned two anti-reformers. Sir R. Vyvyan has been turned out of Cornwall, and Mr. Bankes from Dorset.

The following Counties are unanimous in their returns both of Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses, for the measure of Reform submitted to Parliament: No. of Members.

No. of Members. Bedfordshire

4 Leicestershire Berkshire 9 Middlesex

8 Cheshire 4 Nottinghamshire

8 Derbyshire 4 Rutlandshire

2 Hertfordshire 6 Warwickshire

6 In all ten counties, returning fifty-five Members. There are only two counties in which Reform has lost by the result of the General Election. These counties are Cambridge and Norfolk. In the former, the result of the University election caused a comparative loss of four to the measure, but this has been diminished to two by the election of County Members. In Norfolk the loss of two was sustained by the return of Mr. Alexander Baring, anti-reformer, for Thetford, and the displacing of Mr. F. Baring, jun., who supported the Bill.

In Ireland the cause prospers well : the friends of Ministers are secure of two Members in 20 counties out of 32, and in the rest (with two exceptions) of one representative for each. The Metropolis, by one grand act of constitutional power, has unshipped its Corporation ; and Dublin, the corporate, close, and hitherto antinational Dublin, has followed the example of London, and returned two Reformers.

In Scotland, on the aggregate, the cause of Reform has also been triumphant, though the system of representation there is so disgraceful to the age.

Of the country gentlemen, or rather the knot which so styled themselves in the House of Commons, and met during the sittings of Parliament twice and thrice a week to deliberate on the part which, as a body, they should adopt and act upon in politics, mostly at Sir E. Knatchbull's, Lord Chandos's, or Sir Richard Vyvyan's-few are returned to the present Parliament. It was this party which, in a great measure, by their short-sighted opposition, upset the Duke of Wellington's Administration, which planned and prompted Sir R. Vyvyan's amendment, and which advised General Gascoyne's celebrated amendment, which terminated so unluckily for them in the dissolution of Parliament, and the consequent defeut of all their plans. Of this party, so influential, there will not be in the next Parliament more than six or seven Members-viz. Lord Chandos, Lord Mandeville, Lord G. Somerset, Lord Ingestrie, two of the Lowthers, and the Wynns.

Public MEETINGS.--London. At a Court of Common Council, last month, held in the City of London, the following Resolutions were agreed to :-" Resolved unanimously, That this Court, animated by feelings of the most devoted loyalty and attachment to His most Gracious Majesty, takes this the earliest opportunity of recording the expression of their heart-felt gratitude for his paternal anxiety for the contentment and happiness of his people,' manifested by the recent exercise of his Royal Prerogative, in the Dissolution of the late Parliament, for the purpose (as declared in His Majesty's most gracious Speech) of ascertaining the sense of the people in the way in which it can be most constitutionally and authentically expressed, on the expediency of making such changes in the Representation as cir. cumstances may appear to require, and which, founded upon the acknowledged principles of the Constitution, may tend at once to uphold the just rights and prerogatives of the Crown, and to give security to the liberties of the people.'-Re
