Consequently, when the As sembly met yesterday afternoon, Mr. R.-id moved as an amendment upon the Addrees in-Eeply the following words : — ' We feel bound, however, to inform your Ercellency that the conduct of Ministers in advising the Governor to prorogue Parliament on the 18th ultimo in the raids'; of an important session was utterly unjuBti&able. If the Ministers meant by that violent and arbitrary proceed ing to resent the vote enrrisd against them ...
