Sir Chables Barry And The Newipau.Ce Of ...
Sir Chables Barry and the NewiPau . ce of Westminsteb . —Copies- of farther correspondence between the Office of Works and Sir Charles Barry , & c , respecting his remuneration as architect of the New Palace at Westminster up to the present date , have been printed by order x > f Parliament , on the motion of Mr . Dtummond , M . P . The papers refer to the old dispute between Sir Benjamin Hall and the Government , and include a ' protest' made by him last February , to the effect that , as no bargain was made by the Government with Sir Charles Barry in 1839 , he is consequently entitled to the usual commission of five per cent , on the outlay . Mr . Henry A . Hunt , a surveyor of works and
buildings ( to whom the protest appears to have been referred ) , states his opinion to , the effect that Sir Charles Barry has placed his case upon a wrong issue in treating it as a commercial question , and that , how inadequate soever Sir Charles may have thought the remuneration offered him by Government in 1839 , he nevertheless agreed to bow to the decision , and to that agreement he should have adhered . The Treasury did not deem it necessary to reply to Sir Charles Barry ' s protest , as they considered the question as finally settled by their minute' of the 4 th of July , 1856 , to which Sir Charles Barry assented ; and thus the matter is to drop . — Times .
Scarcity of Cotton . —A large public meeting of the Cotton Supply Association was held at the Town Hall , Manchester , on Friday week , to consider the present inadequate supply of cotton , and the best means of extending its growth . Mr . J . Watts , Mayor of Manchester , presided , and there were present Lord Stanley , M . P . ; Colonel W . Patten , M . P . ; Mr . W . H . Hornby , M . P . ; Mr . Kershaw , M . P . ; Sir A . Ramsay , M . P . ; Mr- James Platt , M . P , & c . Mr . J . A . Turner , M . P ., moved the . first resolution , which was as follows : — " That , in the opinion of this meeting , the supply of cotton to this country is inadequate to the requirements of manufacturing industry , and , being almost entirely derived from one source , is uncertain in quantity and
unduly fluctuating in price . That this meeting believes the colonial and other dependencies of Great Britain affor . d ample resources for the cultivation and development of the cotton plant , and that it is the duty as well as the interest of the British nation to aid in the promotion of those efforts by means of which its growth may be extended not only in the British dominions , but in all accessible countries . " Several speakers having addressed the meeting ( amongst them Lord Stanley , who remarked on the injudiciousness of our depending entirely on the United States for our supply of cotton ) , Mr . E . W . Watkins , M ; P . for Yarmouth , moved the second resolution : — " That this meeting hails with satisfaction the formation of the Cotton Supply Association in Manchester , and pledges itself to use its best
endeavours to promote the objects of that association , and that the petition to the House of Commons now read in support of the petition of Mr . J . B . Smith , M . P ., upon the affairs of India , so far as that motion has reference to an increase in the supply of cotton from that country , be adopted by this meeting . " The petition recited the importance of the cotton manufacture , and stated that it amounted last year to more than 88 , 000 , 000 / . ; that the raw material last year was 900 , 000 , 0001 b ., of which 700 , 000 , 0001 b . were received from the United States ; and that the Legislature abolished slavery without providing for a Bupply of free labour . It concluded with a prayer for the removal of obstacles to a better supply of cotton from India . Mr . James Platt , M . P ., seconded , and Sir A . Ramsay supported this resolution , which was agreed to .
Memorial to Loud Olive . —A meeting was held on Tuesday , at Willis ' s Rooms , St . James ' s . -street , to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the battle of Plassy , and for the purpose of erecting a memorial of the great Lord Clive . Lord Hill took the chair , and was supported by the Duke of Cleveland , Earl Stanhope , Viscount Dungannon , Viscount Newport , Sir James Hogg , Archdeacon Allen , the Rev . Dr . Kennedy , & c . It was resolved to appoint a committee to promote
subscriptions , Thb Late Storm . —During 1 , he storm which prevailed on the night of Friday week , about thirty feet in length of the wall recently erected to enclose the extension of the Royal Arsenal , Woolwich , fell with a tremendous crash into the Plumstoad-road , the foundations having given way . ¦ . ,. „ Tub Woolwich Artisans . —A largo batch of emigrants , composed of artisans formerly employed ot Wooltermination of the
wich , and thrown out of work by the war , sailed on Friday week , with their families from Liverpool for Quebec , in the ship Hepry Cooke , which had been chartered for the purpose by the agent in Liverpool for the committee conducting the emigration . The total number of emigrants was two hundred and seventy-six , all of whom are provided with railway tickets , which will enable thorn to travel to Toronto , whore work will bo provided for thorn .

Heavy shares , also , have shown but little , if any , variation ia price until this day , when , although Consols opened and closed at 934 , i . some ruled at improved prices . Money , although somewhat easier in demand , continues active , and in the event of the next quotations of Eastern exchanges wot proving adverse , a further reduction in the rato of interest may bo looked for . The directors of the Bank of France yesterday lowered their rate of discount J por cent ., making the rato 51 per cent ., in face of the reduction in their stock of bullion—a measure which has failed to produce any favourable impression on French prices .
