At a numerous and highly respectable Meeting of Christians of different religious denominations, held at the Large Room, at the Bear Inn, Devizes, on Tuesday the 29th day of January, 1833;
G.E.Sloper, Esq., in the Chair;
On the motion of the Rev.Richard Elliott, seconded by Rev.Joseph Mayo, it was resolved unanimously :
That this Meeting deeply sympathizes with the free coloured population of the United States, in the restrictions which have been made, and still continue, to their enjoyment of civil and religious liberty, and most sincerely rejoice in the probable result of the emigration of those who are now, or may hereafter, be settled in Upper Canada, under the protection of British laws.
That this Meeting highly approves of the objects that have brought Mr.Paul to this country, and feel every confidence in him, from the numerous and highly respectable testimonials which have been received.
That we can therefore do no otherwise than wish him every possible success, and rejoice that the cause of our free coloured brethren have in him, so judicious and faithful an advocate,

Upper Canada, York, 26th July, 1831.
"The bearer, Mr.Nath.Paul, has for a considerable time officiated as Minister to the people of colour, and is now settled in the township of Bidulph, in the London district. He has employed himself with much success during the last nine months, in Establishing Schools for the people of colour under his charge; and has acquired the esteem and friendship of the settlers located in his neighbourhood, for his good conduct and exertions in the cause of religion and education.
"His object in preceeding to England, being for the purpose of obtaining assistance to enable him to complete the Establishment, and to promote the welfare of families residing on the blocks of land purchased from the Canada Company by the people of colour, who have lately been obliged to sell their property, and leave their native country. He is deserving of encouragement from the benevolent."
"J.Colborne, Lieutenant Governor."
I do sincerely hope that this settlement will be encouraged.
Also, the following persons having seen the numerous respectable attestations possessed by the Rev.N.Paul, as to his character and motives, from Episcopalians, Independents, Baptists, and persons belonging to the Society of Friends, in America, most cordially recommended him to the object which he has in view of the friends of patriotism and religion :

In the Close, at Winchester, on Monday, the Rev.Chas.Richards, aged 79, Prebendary of Winchester Cathedral, Rector of South Wanborough, and of St.Bartholomew Hyde, in that city, and for fifty years the distinguished and much respected master of Hyde Abbey School. Early in life Mr.Richards became principal of that establishment, which under his management, attained celebrity which few private schools can boast. - Among many distinguished persons educated there, was the late Right.Hon.George Canning, who ever retained so great an affection and respect for the tutor of his early years, that, on being appointed Prime Minister, his first wish was to confer on him that otium cum dignitate, which a life so successfully devoted to the service of the youth of his country so eminently deserved. Although he did not himself live to see the arrangements which he had made for this purpose carried into effect, his successor in office, Lord Goderich, from respect to the memory of his friend, and as a public testimony to the merits of Mr.Richards, presented him to a stall in the cathedral, which shortly after lapsed to the crown. In all the charities of private life Mr R was most exemplary. In public he was a zealous and steady friend of civil and religious liberty.
Mr.Moss, Portrait and Miniature Painter, of No.1 Walcot Buildings, Bath, feels it again his duty to offer his respectful thanks to the Gentry of Devizes, whose extended patronage has kept him professionally engaged so long.

It may be necessary to remind all individuals entitled to the right of voting under the £10 qualification, that no person can be registered in September next, unless he has occupied the property is respect of which he claims, from the 31st July, 1832, to the 31st July 1833, and unless he has been duly rated as such occupier, in his own christian and surname, to all the poor rates between these dates. Persons who may find errors in the way in which they are described in the rates should get them corrected, which the 30th clause of the reform act renders it imperative on overseers to do.
On Thursday evening, a grand Dinner was given by the Reformers of Salisbury to their newly-elected Representative, W.B.Brodie, esq., at which 330 persons sat down to table. The chair was filled by Mr.Alderman Sparshatt, and the Vice Chair by Mr.Squarey.
For A Correspondent. - A gallant son of Mars and the youthful lass were on Saturday last about to be united at a parish church not 100 miles from Chippenham, in the bands of Hymen, and the ceremony had proceeded even as far as the ring on the finger of the bride, when grandpapa appeared, and forbade any further proceedings until the arrival of the mother of the fair one. Mother arrived on Wednesday, withdrew her objections and the ceremony was completed.
An inquisition was held on Tuesday last, before W.Adye, esq., of Chippenham, on the body of Wm.Sartain, a youth about 18 years of age, regarding whose decease very considerable anxiety was felt. The Jury consisted of the most respectable persons in the town; and it appeared in evidence, that the deceased, on Friday the 18th inst met a boy named Hill, about the same age as himself, with a gun in his hand, to whom he observed, "Mind what you are about with that gun among so many boys!" Hill replied, "I will fire at the basket you have on your shoulder !" and immediately discharged the gun, which it appeared, was only loaded with powder and a considerable quantity of wadding. The deceased went onwards without making any observations, but he was observed to stagger; and, and calling at a malt-house on the road, he told the circumstance to a boy, and said "that he was so much frightened by the report of the gun, that he did not think his life was worth a halfpenny." - He then went to work in the malthouse, (where he was occasionally employed); but during the night he complained of a severe pain in his bowels, and was very unwell. He continued poorly on the following day, but went to work as usual. On the Sunday morning, his friends called in Mr.C.Bayly, the surgeon, who considered that he was suffering from inflammation of the intestines, of which complaint he died on the 28th inst. Mr.Bayly was of opinion, that the fright had so disordered his frame, as to predispose him to take cold, which brought on the inflammation, and which was indirectly occasioned by Hill's firing off the gun. Mr.Bayly could not positively state, that the fright had caused the disease of which he died, but he had no doubt of the fact. The Jury, after a long investigation, returned the verdict :- "Died of inflammation of the bowels, brought on from fright." The Coroner and Jurors strongly enforced the parish officers of having Hill fined by the Magistrates, for wantonly firing off a gun in the streets.
Another inquest was held by the same Coroner and Jury, on the body of Betty Masey, aged 72. The deceased lived in a house alone, and was found lying near the fire, with her face and left hand severely burnt. The medical attendant stated in evidence, that his belief, she had been seized with apoplexy, and was accidentally burnt during the attack. Verdict accordingly.
On Friday last, at Christian Malford, Mr.Ayde held an inquest on the body of Jacob Guy, who was found dead in a ditch adjoining a beer-house, where he had been drinking the previous night. As far as the evidence adduced could be relied on, it appeared that he had not drank to excess, and was not intoxicated when he left at ten o'clock. Verdict - Found dead.
On the same day at Lacock, on Lydia Sadd, aged 4 years, who was burnt to death. The poor child, it appeared, accidentally caught herself on the fire, and whilst in flames jumped into the lap of her grandmother, an old cripple who, in a minute, also became enveloped in flames, and would shortly have followed the fate of her grandchild, had not a person providentially came in time to extinguish her burning clothes. - Verdict - Accidental.
On Monday last, at Hilperton, on Benjamin Long, a poor child, who had been accidentally scalded on the chest, which occasioned his death. Verdict. - Accidental.
Yesterday, at Calstone, on the body of a very old woman, who was found lying near the fire, quite dead. Her body, head, and arm were so dreadfully burnt, that no person could recognize her; and probably her dreadful appearance will never be forgotten by the jurors. Verdict - Accidental.
One of the overseers of Hungerford yesterday obtained summonses against 7 of the paupers, who had been at work on the roads, for neglect of work. It appears that immediately after the overlooker had been to inspect them, conceiving that he would not again visit them for the day, they proposed to strike, and have a game of cards. They accordingly adjourned to a chalk-pit, where they were discovered by a pay master - some at all-fours, and some looking on; but the best of the affair was they "one and all" actually refused to resume their work, until the game was finished ! There are upwards of 100 men out of employ in the above parish; and if they all insist upon playing at all-fours instead of working - or correspondent, very naturally asks, "What would become of us ?"
William Beckford, esq., late of Fonthill Abbey, and now of Bath, will, it is understood, at his death, entail upon the Dukedom of Hamilton, and deposit as an heir-loom in Hamilton Palace, his vast treasures of art and literature, collected at enormous expense during a long and active life. They consist of pictures of the first class, both ancient and modern, furniture, jewels, plate, and medals; but, above all, and extensive library of extremely rare and valuable books in all languages, printed and in M.S. - London Paper.
The Members of the Swindon Association for the Prosecution of Felons, and mutual protection society, held their annual meeting at the Goddard Arms Inn, Swindon, on Friday last, for the purpose of examining their solicitors bills, auditing the treasurers account, and other matters connected with the association. Mr.W.R.Brown presided in the committee which, on the occasion of the annual meeting is open to all members, and the business was got through in a very satisfactory manner. At four o'clock upwards of 65 members sat down to dinner; Oliver Codrington, esq., being placed in the chair, by general assent. He presided with the utmost satisfaction and pleasure to the company, and the enthusiastic manner with which his health, when proposed, was received and drunk by all present, testified the esteem and regard in which he was held by his surrounding neighbours. Many loyal, patriotic, and appropriate toasts were given by the "vocalists" in the company, and the evening passed off with great conviviality and cheerfulness. There are now upwards of 130 members in this association.
About two o'clock in the morning of Sunday last, the inhabitants of Chippenham were alarmed by a cry of fire, which on examination, was found to proceed from the workshop adjoining a house in Cook-street, occupied by Mrs.Provis - In a short time, the engines arrived, and commenced playing, but the fire by this time, from the circumstances of the house and shop being thatched, had enveloped the buildings in one mass of flame. - Great apprehensions were entertained for the safety of another thatched house, separated only by one dwelling-house; but, from the stillness of the air, and the circumstance of the intermediate building being built high, it was happily preserved, though another house on the opposite side of Mrs.Provis's, caught fire, and was completely destroyed, with the exception of the front wall - The fire continued to rage till towards 6 o'clock, at which time the whole of the roof had fallen in, though the ruins continued to blaze the whole of the day. Happily no lives were lost, and some considerable part of the property was saved; but we lament to state, that four young men of the town have been apprehended on charge of stealing some part of the property during the fire, and have since been committed to Salisbury Gaol for trial at the next assizes for that offence. - It appears extremely probable that the fire was the act of an incendiary, from the circumstances of its arising in a part of the building which was not frequented except in the day time, and from the burner of a lamp near being missing. - The building is insured.
On Tuesday last, Wm.Saunders, a pauper, was brought before W.Bennett, esq., to answer for his mutinous conduct towards Mr.Price, the superintendent of the pauper establishment of this town. It appeared that the pauper had, on the preceding evening, applied for relief in the shape of bed and board, for himself, his wife, and five children; that Mr.Price wished to separate him from his wife during the night; that the pauper, exclaiming "Cursed be he that parts man and wife !" refused to be separated; but that finding his theological eloquence made no impression upon the stony-hearted overseer, he reluctantly submitted to the temporary divorce : that no sooner, however, had the first dawn of morn appeared, than "smash" went Mr.Price's windows; and smashed would have been Mr.Price himself, had the pauper the power to wreak the full amount of his vengence. In his defence, the pauper pleaded a justification, on the ground of being forcibly and illegally parted from his wife. The magistrate would not admit the plea, and the pauper was committed for 21 days to Abingdon Gaol.
On Wednesday night a fire broke out in the stables of the farm occupied by Mr.Cannings at Bathford, and we regret to state that of five horses two are already dead from suffocation, and the remainder in a very precarious state.

Slavery In The United States.
"The Rev.N.Paul, a gentleman of colour, from Wilberforce Settlement, Upper Canada, delivered on Tuesday evening, at the Long Room of the Bear Inn, in this town, a Lecture on the state of Slavery, and of the free coloured population of the United States of America, together with an account of Wilberforce Settlement. The Chair was taken by G.E.Sloper, esq. - Letters were read from the Rev.T.A.Methuen, and the Rev.W.Money, expressive of regret at not being able to be present. Some preliminary observations were then made by the Chairman, in the course of which, the following extracts from a highly interesting letter from Mr.Wilberforce to Mr.Paul, were introduced to the notice of the meeting :-
East Farley, near Maidstone, Jan 14th, 1833.
Dear Sir - I am sorry for having been unable to return an earlier reply to your letter from Bath, of the 3d inst., and I am unaffectedly concerned at youth having been misled by an inaccurate account of my movements, into a journey to Bath, in expectation of seeing me there. I am quite glad to hear that you have become acquainted with my excellent and highly valued friend, Mr.Jay. I speak my sincere opinion, when I say, that his acquaintance would be far more than a compensation for a much longer journey than from London to Bath.
I do not know the precise district or spot in which Wilberforce is situated. If, as I believe, within the diocese of my worthy old friend, the Bishop of Canada, when you return, I will give you an introduction to him, which I hope may be of use to you :- And now, my dear Sir, permit me to beg you to allow me to send you the inclosed trifle (£5) as my contribution towards the fund which may be raised to promote the purposes of your settlement. It is a small contribution; apply it, however, as a slight pledge of my good will, with an assurance that I should be glad to augment it a hundred fold. Parliament is to assemble, I find on the 29th inst; meanwhile, I will write to my friend, Mr.Buxton, and request him to turn his own attention, and that also of some common and like minded friends to the subject of your undertaking, for the purpose of considering what course we may best adopt for the interests of your community. When you next write to me, pray mention how soon you would like to return to Canada, and also tell me the colony's situation. - With every good wish, I remain, dear Sir, your faithful servant,
The rev.gent then proceeded to address the numerous and respectable company assembled. His commencing remarks, which were of the most liberal and christian character, were principally directed to the general system of Slavery, and the awfully dark and neglected condition of the inhabitants of Africa. After which, he proceeded to the particular objects of his Lecture, embracing remarks, and facts, illustrative of the extent and degrading nature of Slavery in the United States - the present humiliating situation of the free people of colour in that country - and the origin, past progress, and future prospects, of the colony of Wilberforce, in the dominions of his Britannic Majesty in Upper Canada. From these is appeared, that there are (according to the census of 1830) 2,010,572 Slaves in that boasted land of liberty ! and of free persons of colour 319,467 ! Slavery is chiefly confined to what are denominated the South & South-western States, viz. District of Columbia, (the seat of the National Government,) Maryland, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri. It may probably surprise the people of this free country to be informed, that those who are denominated free in America, are not in any of the States entitled to all the privileges and immunities of citizens. Their condition, especially in each of the above named States, is truly deplorable. Though subject to taxation in common with all others, they are notwithstanding universally disfranchised; and having no incentive to rouse their energies and cultivate their intellect, they are obliged to submit to the mortification of being considered inferior to their oppressors. While they feel deeply sensible to their inferiority, when contrasted with the more enlightened and accomplished white citizens, they are deprived by law of the advantages of education, - interdicted from attending as spectators the halls of legislation and courts of justice, - from filling posts of honour; - are prohibited the use of the press and freedom of speech - & forbidden by law to convoke assemblies of persons of their own colour, unless the worship be conducted by a white minister - and of late, unconstitutional and cruel laws have been enacted to compel them to leave those States in which they were born; while in no other of the United States can these unfortunates and oppressed persons find an asylum without being subject to unpleasant and often cruel restrictions.
Compelled by such degrading treatment, several families emigrated from Ohio and other States in the year 1829, and settled themselves in the beautiful and fertile tract of country which lies between Lake Erie and Huron, under the sanction and protection of the British Authorities of Upper Canada.
This emigration was caused by the passing of an inhuman and obnoxious law, obliging every free person of colour to leave the state of Ohio in 30 days, or pay the sum of 500 dollars as security for not becoming a burden to the State; and in default of one or the other of these requirements, he was subjected to a punishment of the most degrading character. On the promulgation of this law by the authorities of Ohio, the free coloured people called a meeting to consider their future steps, when they resolved to request an additional 30 days, in order to decide on this important matter, this time was granted them. They immediately sent a deputation to the British Governor of Upper Canada, Sir.J.Colborne, K.C.B., requesting to know how they would be received if they emigrated to that province' "The answer," said the rev.speaker, "was that a true-born Englishman, namely, "Tell the free coloured people of constitutional America on the other side of the Lake, that we loyalists of this side of the Lake pay no regard to colour, but to conduct; and that if they come to this province, they will be entitled to all the privileges of the subjects of the King of England." On this they immediately left the land of their birth, and as many as were able at once located on lands purchased of the British Canada Company; others procuring labour at different spots as they were able. At the settlement, the emigrants immediately proceeded to clear the land, giving to their settlement the name Wilberforce, in token of the unfeigned gratitude and high respect in which they hold that ardent friend of African Emancipation.
Since the formation of this infant colony, it has flourished beyond the most sanguine expectations of its warmest friends, and the settlers have been industriously employed in rearing comfortable log houses for their dwellings, and in bringing their lands into a state of cultivation. The God of mercy has graciously smiled upon the labour of their hands, so that they have raised during the last year enough to supply their necessities.
The Gospel has been introduced, and two christian churches have been constituted, each of which has a pastor. A Sunday School has been formed and is in successful operation - A Day School, also, promises to produce a very beneficial influence on the interests of the colony. In addition to these important institutions, a Temperance Society has been organized, which receives the countenance and support of the whole Colony, who have resolved to prohibit the introduction of ardent spirits, even as an article of mechandize. It is proposed also, to found in this colony a Seminary of education for Ministers and others, upon the principle of manual labour; that the students, by employing part of the day in agricultural or mechanical pursuits, may provide, either in whole or in part their own support.
But at the same time however, while all friends of the coloured people of America hail with delight the formation of this highly important Settlement, they cannot but deeply regret, that there are thousands of free people of colour, who are anxious to join their bretheren at Wilberforce, but who do not possess the means of meeting the necessary expenses for doing so. It is in behalf of those oppressed an unhappy individuals, and to promote the cause of education and religion, that Mr.Paul has been appointed as an Agent to visit England, to appeal to the benevolence of the British people for such donations, either in goods or money as, for the accomplishment of such an object, they may be disposed to give. The sum necessary for the removal of a family consisting of six persons, would probably amount to £4. Whatever may be given will be sacredly appropriated either in assisting the coloured people in removing to Canada, or towards the Establishment of the contemplated seminary, as the donor may direct.
In the course of Mr.Paul's address, many instances of gross oppression towards the free coloured people in different States, were enumerated - many heart rending accounts of cruelties practised on the unoffending slave, were detailed, which made the most manifest impression on the numerous and respectable audience, and called forth the honest and indignant expression of "shame ! - shame !" on the perpetrators of such unjustifiable atrocities, and excited a feeling of deep interest and lively sympathy in every bosom. Throughout the whole of Mr.P's address, he was listened to with the most marked attention of every friend of freedom and humanity, in this town and neighbourhood. It would be impossible to do justice to the candid admissions - the manly bearing - the christian feeling - the simple eloquence - the touching appeals, of the speaker; and we feel persuaded that an impression was made on the minds of all present, in favour of this advocate of christian freedom, and the cause of the oppressed, which will only cease with their own capacity for enjoying the rights and privileges of Englishmen.
At the close of the Rev.Mr.Paul's address, the Rev.R.Elliott proposed, and the Rev.Jos.Mayo seconded, a resolution expressive of sympathy and lively interest towards the free coloured people of the United States, and the colonists of Wilberforce. (see advertisement in another column) The meeting broke up decidedly interested in the proceedings of the evening.
