THE KING'S Speech at the opening of Parliament contained, as we anticipated, (p. 63,) a declaration of a neutral and pacific policy with regard to the continental powers. It was received with applause in both houses. Ju the Commons, Mr. BROUGHAM delivered a philippic, said to be a master. piece of eloquence, against the three despots of the Holy Alliance. On bringing up the Report on the Address, Sir R. WILSON made some observations on the state of things between France and Spain. "With regard to the party in France urging on the war, he was persuaded that to put down the liberty of Spain was not their ultimate object, but to annihilate the Charter and seize the national do mains. The letter signed by a person called Achille Jouffroy, was a sort of manifesto of that party. There was another writer of the same extravagant class, who actually lamented the conversion of the people of Europe from Paganism to Christianity, because it had unsettled men's minds. Another, the Abbé Fraysinnous, who was now put at the head of the Education of France, declared that the extension of individual instruction created an independence of opinion fatal to society."-Various petitions have been received against the Marriage Act of last
session, and Lord Ellenborough in one house, and Dr. PHILLIMORE in the other, gave early notices of a bill for its amendinent.-Mr. HUME has begun his economical campaign, and has obtained papers preparatory to his motion respecting the Church-Establishment and Church-Property and the Tithe-System, in Ireland.The Catholic Question is to be introduced soon after the Easter recess, by Mr. PLUNKETT, the Attorney-General of Ireland: it has been delayed on account of the late outrages of the Orange faction at Dublin, and the incapacity of the Government to obtain justice upon the culprits, which will be the first subjects of parliamentary inquiry.—Lord ARCHIBALD HAMILTON has given notice of a motion for papers relating to Mr. BoWRING's unjust and cruel usage by the French Government, and the members of the House will be prepared for the discussion by this gentleman's account of the affair, just published, under the title of " Details," &c. It is a spirited and eloquent production, and we should think that not a single Member of Parliament can read it without sympathy with the injured writer, and indignation at the spy-directed government of the Bourbons. But the feelings that sway the House and the logic that is there accounted convincing, are not always conformable to the common standard.

We are sorry that he has taken offence at F. B.'s letter has been handed to us. On a review our determination to close the controversy respecting Chapel-Deeds. of the matter, however, we cannot help thinking that in the decision we consulted the wishes of our readers. Several communications besides F. B.'s were put aside; and it will generally happen that whenever a controversy in a periodical work is brought to an end there will be some papers unused. This is no doubt undesirable, but it is a less evil than that of having a subject hunted down.

HE name of Coelius Secundus versing upon them in the presence of
arized to those who have perused the preceding papers on the Italian Reformation. Among the many illustrious men who quitted Italy owing to the change of their religious sentiments he held a high rank, and was justly considered one of the brightest ornaments of the cause on account of which he became a voluntary exile from his native land. He was born in 1503, at Cherico, in Piedmont, of an ancient and noble family: he was the youngest of twenty-three children, and lost both his parents before he had attained his ninth year. His education up to this period was conducted at home, under domestic tutors. He was afterwards placed in a public school, where he made a rapid proficiency in the classical languages. When he had completed his elementary instruction, he removed to the University of Turin, where he applied himself with great diligence and success to the study of the civil law, and of the various branches of elegant literature. Whilst he was thus engaged, and before he was twenty years of age, his attention was drawn to the subject of religion by the proceedings of Luther and Zwinglius, whose fame was at this time spreading throughout Italy. Some of the writings of those cele brated Reformers had already fallen into his hands; and the perusal of these inflamed his desire to seek the personal friendship of the authors, and to enlarge his acquaintance with their opinions. To gratify his wishes on these points he determined upon going into Germany, and prevailed upon two of his fellow-students to become the companions of his journey. As they travelled, the doctrines of the Reformation became naturally the chief topics of discourse: but con
were reported as suspicious persons to the Bishop of Ivrea, who, before they had passed the confines of Piedmont, caused them to be arrested and thrown into prison. After a confinement of two months, Curio, through the intercession of some powerful friends, obtained his liberation. The Bishop, when he was brought before him to be discharged, was struck by his brilliant talents and uncommon attainments. He gently reproved him for his indiscretion in inclining a favourable ear to the representations of the Reformers, and dismissed him with letters of recommendation to the Abbot of St. Benigno, in the neighbourhood, where he advised him to prosecute his literary studies.
At this place he was much shocked by the superstition of the people, and the frauds practiced upon them by the monks. What particularly roused his indignation were some pretended relics of two celebrated martyrs, which were here objects of peculiar veneration, and a source of great emolument to the establishment. He took frequent opportunities to inveigh against them in private among his confidential acquaintance; but after some time he determined to take some more decisive step to get rid of the evil. He watched his opportunity when the monks were absent and engaged, to get possession of the key of the sacred shrine in which the relics were deposited, and took them all away. He then deposited in their place a Bible, which he had procured from the library of the abbey, accompanying it with the following inscription: Hæc est arca fæderis, ex quâ vera sciscitari oracula liceat, et in quâ veræ sunt sanctorum reliquæ. "This is the are of the covenant from which
