IYetterday a Quarterly Genteral Court was held at the Eut Iudia. iste, wlen the CIIAIRtMAN laid before the Court several papers relating to the allowances, compensations, and superanruations, granted under the by-laws. he C-UAIRMA then put the qucstion of adjournment, when ee DOUGLAs KINNATIRD rose, and asked what progress had elln made by the Court of Directors, in the selection of the papers crdeted by the Courtof Proprietors, respecting the Mtarquis of Hast- 11s's administration of India. He was aware that some time was necessary to select such voluminous papers, and that it was advis- ab?e they should riot be distributed until the whole were printed in a Ollected form: but he thought that it would be very desirable, pend- bIsg the progress of selection. that some general information should e comunicated respecting their tenour, as it might be deemed ne- cessary to call for other rapers than those which were deemed suffi- cient by the Court of Directors. He of course supposed that the selection would comprise a general view of the mibtary, political, ZA fnanciaI adminiatration of the noble marquia. He begged also to ask if it were intended to print,among the others, an cxpose drawn up bytLord Hastings himself upon this subject. There were like- Wise some otherjpapers which had, he understood, been transmitted to the Court of Directors, and he was anxious to know whether they would be induded among the papers intended tobe printedl. The CRAIRMAN, in answer to the questions which had beenput, Said, that progress had been made in the selection of the papers al- l]ded to, and arrangements enteredl into for having them printed; but it was not intended to deliver any part until the whole were com- pleted. The paper or expose of the AMarquis of Hastinlgs would most undoubtedly be printed with the rest, as well as the other papers alluded to, if he understood the hon. proprietor to refer to certain papers sent in to the Court of Directors by an hon. baronet. The papers respecting Messrs. Palmer's house would be also fosthcoming-of course those relating to the Nepaul, Alahratta, and Pindarree wars, with political documents connected with those events, would be included among the others. The mili- tary part of the selection was nearly completed, and no doubt every facilitv would be affbrdedI to the hon.mover and his friends, to consi- der wheth.r any other papers besides those selected by the Court of Directors were necessary for his view of the subject. Mr. DOUGLAS KINNAIRD asked whether any idea could be formed of the time when the papers would be ready for delivery ? The CHAIRMAN was sorry to say that he could not define the time, for the political selection had not been yet determined upon; for some of the papers were in the possession of the secret commit- tee, and an application had been made to the Board of Control for permission to produce them. Until the answer was known, he could not say when these papers would be ready; but he could assure the hon. proprietor that tbe Court of Directors would lose no time in ompleting the necessarv selection. sMr. DOUGLA5 KINNAIRD said that it was very daesirable to know, as soon as possible, how far the Board of Control meant to complv with the rcquisition transmitted resDecting the secret docu- mnents; for if they were not forthcoming, the Court of Proprietors might be placed in an embarrassing situation when they came to dis- cuss the general q,iestion. The CHAIRMAN wished it to be distinctly understood, that he did riot say these papers woulI be withheld; but he could give no posi- tive answer until the opinion applied for was given. Mr. TRANrT said, that as financial papers were alluded to, he thought it would be desirable that a statement should be made, showing the revenues of the seded territories under the Bengal Ad- nnistration. at the time when the iMlarquis Wellesley was at the wad of the Indian Government, andl when the Marquis of Hast- ikgs was there. These papers might become material, althouglh at first view their connextion was not so apparent. The CrIAIJRIMAN replied, that every paper would be produced which was calculated to elucidate the Marquis of Hastings's Admi- nistration in India. On the question of adjournment being again put, (-eneral TieoRNTSON rose to submit a motion to the Court- The CHAIRMAN informed him that lie might put a question, but that no motion could supersede the one for adjournment, according to the practice of the court. General TiioRNToN. persisted in pressing upon the considera- tion of the Cuurt the following resolution ; his object being, he said. to have it put on record, to stand as a suggestion to the Court of Directors:- " RsolveA. That it be recommended to the Court of Directors to take into immediate consideration the propriety of giving the ne- cessary notice for the purpose of a reduction of the present annual interest of 3A percent. paid no India Bonds-a measure which, it ap- pears to this Court, would not only be beneficial to the proprietors, hut likewise advantageous to the public; the present premium per centum paid for India Bonds being about 80s., rendering ii manifest that the existing interest is unnecessarily high, and therefore Inju- TiouS to the pronrietors. whilst the public is deprived of that accom- modation whiclh India Bonds, at a moderate premium, are so well calculated to afford." A long conversation then took place between the CHAIRMAN, Dcputv CIAIRMiAN, Mllr. D. KINNAIRD, and General I'sHoRN- TON, upon the point of order, when at length the hon. General permitted his motion to stand as a notice for the next Court. ItAr,.EYBURY COLLEGE. Mr. D. KINNAIRD said, that as he hoped to have a large majo- rity upon the ballot respecting Haileyburv College (a laugh), he was anxious to know what ulterior steps the Court of Directors meant, in that event, to pursue. The CHcAIsRMAN said. that if that majorityshould unfortunately occur. it would be the dity of the Court of Directors to frame a peti- tion to Parliament. to give effect to the decision of the Court of Proprietors.-The Court then adjourned.

On the oecasion which gave rise to the present action, he took precautions to detect what he suspected to be the result of de- sign; and accordingly he obtained decisive evidence that a fraud had been practised upon him. It was admitted, on crosseexamination of the vlaintiff's witness, that the parcel of wheut in question had begun to grow before it was sent to the defendant's mill. The fraud of which the plaintiff complalhed was stated to be one of not unfrequent occurrence. efoce the plaintiff's cuse dosed, Mr. G(u RawEY interposed, and admitted that the defendants must submit to a verdict against tbem. The transaction of which the plaintiff complained arose from mis- take, in deliveriuz to him other flour than that wvhich was the pro. dauce of his own corn.

Parish Of Chelsea.
Sir,-A psrinted copy of a report, prcsented .16vst3 of Chel- sea parish, by a cotnmittee of inhabitants Aepated bya7former ves- try to investigate the accounts ofrthe overseers -,f the poor for the year ending Lady-dav, 1822, is in general bircuTadtbi throughout the parish. The prominent facts to be collected from this report are- I hat the local magistrates haAl been 80 assured, by a tbrmer re- port of the committee, and by a partial inspection, that the accoun.s of the overseers would not bear the character of truth and accuracy, that they would not permit the officers to swearto them as such. That the conmmittee, being stopped by this bar, interposed by the consciences of the local magistrates,. suspended their direct measures for a time, and afterwards decided on a criminal prosecution against Cartwright, one - of the overseers on specific charges affecting his ac- counts, it the getting up of wihl prosecttion "ivarious impedi- ments and uncertainties were 'foun)d to exist, some of which were successfully mset and removed, while others, wlhichi could not be al- together reduced or cleared uD, were guarded against or counteract- ed by every means which prudence and professional judgment could That, in this stage of the business, the defendant, r. Cartwright, who was in a dangerous state of health, through the' mediation of the rector, applied to the committee for a compromuise, and offered to re- l]iquish the half, nay the whole, of a balance of 6201. and upvards, for which he had made the parish his debtor in his accounts, rather than that t he prosecution should be persevered in; and thst, ulti- mnately, the committee considered it not inconsistent witb justice, highly expedient as a protection against a possible failure in the pro- secution, and most in accordance wfiththe dictates of charity, to ac- cede to this ofter; and accordingly that, ia consideration of a nomi- nal sum, and the abandonment of the prosecution, dlr. Cartwright excuted a release to the parish of the aleged balance in his favoar. As regards Mr. Cartwright, these facts are strong enough to lead to conviction in the mind of everv impartial man that his accounts would not bear the light, and there ran be no doubt that the duty undertaken by the committee was ably conducted, and that their de- cision in favour of the compromise NvaS, under all the circum- stances, judicious; but, at the same time, I should have been glad to have seen a little less of vanity in the report of these achieve- ments-something short of an assamy'tion conveyed by the language of the report. and by the calculation at its close, tthat the " net sav- ings" resulting to the parish from the labours of the committee were 7701. 12s sL., as lithis rnoney (of which the grcater part was obviously wrung fromn the timidity of the valetudinarian defendant, and accepted mainly from an apprehension of failure in the prosecu- tion, to which a recent example of the uncertainty of session law might reasonably have given rise) was irrecovera,ble by the parish in any other way than by the means used by the committee, k,aeusua, flLarcn ij. _ I amn, Sir, vours, &c.

Common Council.
A Court of Common Council was yesterday held at Gumldlhall. It was agreed to petition Parliament a,gainst a bill now pending, fbr making a canal from the river Lea to the Regent's canal, on the ground that the measure would have the effect of depriving the city of London of certain ancient rights, dues, and tolls, to which it was entitled; and a petition to that effect was read and adopted. FLEET-31ARKET. The report of the improvement committee, recommending a loan to be effected to the amount of 1d0,0091., upon bonds under the city seal, for the purpose of carrying the inmprovements respecting Fleet- market into effect, was, after a short discussion, agreedl to. THIE LORD 5tAYOR. IUr. Drxox rose to call the attention of the Court to certain ex- pressionsattributedto the LordlMayor-(we understood that the worthy memberalluded to the report of a speech lately delivered bv his Lordship at ai wardmote, containing observutions uponI son.e of the present city members). The Lon DAlAYOR-1f the gentleman means, as I bave been given to unlderstand, to call the attention of the Court to what I am reported to have said in another place, I conceive that h:e is out of order. I have not read the report, and therefore do not know if it be correct or not; but if it be a correct report, it only contains ob- servations that I have frequently made before, but which cannot be brought under the cognizance of this Court. I exrnesseel no senti. ments upon that occasion but what I hlad frequently expressedl be- fore, and shall express again, whenever an occasion calls upon me to do so. Mr. Dixot.-I am only anxious that the Lord Mayor should be relieved from the imputation which the report in question casts upon him. The LonD MA'Yon.-Unless the gentleman means to complain of a breach of privilege, he is out of order. From any imputation at- tempted to be cast upon me, I will thank him to allow me to defend myself. if the gendemen think it worth their while to waste their time on the subject, I have no objection to enter into an explana- tion of wvhat I then stated, and to repeat here the rentiments I ex- pressed. Mr. FAVEL.-Our time is too precious to be wasted in tlLis way. AMr. DixoN..-I could have told my story in halftthe time- The LonD AlAYOR.-Sir, I do nor sit here to hear stories. You need not trouble yourself about my defence; you- may leave it to mvself. Mr. Dsxos-It is not the individual, but the lord Mayor of this city, I wish to defend. When I see expressions attributed tD him which I know he never could have uttered- Mlr. PtILLErX argued that the worthy memiber was out of order. Mr. -DsxoN justified the line of conduct he was pursuing, b) a reference to the complaint m&de of Alderman Bridiges, during his mayoralty. The LorD MAYOI.-I must set the gentleman right.- l1r. Dixow.-I sce I have touched upon a sore subject. The LOAD AIAYOR.-r must set the gentleman right: that was a complaint for a breach of privilege on the part of the Lord Mayor, in introducing armed men into the city. Withl respect to the report in question, I pledge my honour I have never seen it; having been shown only a few lines of an ex- tract from it by iNMr. Aldermai 'Wood, when I was officiaily engaged. if the report be correct, it only contains what I have saitl before, and shall repeat again; if it be incorrect, I wil only say that I have not taken the trouble to correct a report these 30 years. Fr. FAVELL moved the order of the day. 111r. Dixox was proceeding. Mr. FAVELL said he was out of order, in proceeding with a sub- ject after the Lord Aayor had expressed his opinion upon it. He again movel the order of the day. It then appeared that there was another question (of no import- ance) before the Court, which was put by the officer, and the present tnatter dropped. T11E SPASISH VOTE. AMr. JAUES rose to make a motion, of which he bad given notice some months ago, respcCting the usc to which the sum of 1,0001. voted in aid of the Spaniards, had been applied. Alr. ROWTHs aid, that he was a member of the committee, and could state that they had no objection to sadsfy the inquiry of the bon. gentleman. Alr. JAMES then took a review of the circumstances that had at- tended the Frencl istvasion of Spain, as contrasted with the results promised by the advocates of this loan when it was granted, and said that thvy ought to render the Court distrustful of such repre- sentations in future. He concluded by mnoving, that the committee be ordered to report to. the Court in what manner the grant had been applied bv them; and to whom, and by wlhat means, it had been remitted. AlMr. DIxoN seconded the motion. Mr. Alderman VENAULEs defended the prindple on wlich the grant had been made. Its success by no meansjustified the aggres. sion of the French upon the independence of Spain.. Mr. Dsxos said, the simple question was, not the policy or the impolicy of the vote- but what had been done with the money ? Mr. FAVELL alsojastified the principles on which the vote had been passed; and reprobated the insinuation conveyed by this mo. tion against the comunittee. 1Mr. ROwTH, on general principles, would bedisposed to oppose thiis motion, because it was not supported by a priva facie case- but hc ras on the present occa.ien anxious for the inquiry because he knew that the result weuld be most satisfactory both to the committee and the Coart. After a few observations from Mr. WErc;C1, Mr. TAYLOR, and Alr. JAMES, in reply. the motion wws agreed to unanimously. CUMMdfOwN COUiNCU.
Crown Side.
The interest excited by tile expectedt trials of the persons %m_ mitted for the alleged murder of James Grainge, it RableyJv,l,oo was considerably lessened by the returns made on the s5v5v1ai biil of indictment sent up to the GrandJury yesterday. By D neo'o,gk, however, the court was crowded, but there was litt]p exniess n ofr anxsiet or curiosity in the persons who comaposed the alditory; in. deed, little more was observable in the town thII7i on dinat,,ry occa- sions. At half-past eight o'clock, Captain (for Suri5on) Connolly and MIrs. Browvne were conveyed in a post-chaise rrrom the prison to the court-house. Trayers, Aloran, and Amelia_aMorgan, were conveyed on foot, under ans eseort of javelin-men. At9o'clock Dtr. Justice1EST entered the Courts when a petitjury was immediately sworn, and the trials of Janes JBean, Johkt Smtth, and Luke Brickliand, were callca on (for whijh see beldow): thix produced evident disappointment ia ihe Court, b,it wa" consid,ered as an indication that the trials of the first mentioned irjisers wouldl not occupy alon, tim'e, On inquiry we leArned that the delay wasoccasioned by a proeped- ing of rather an unusual nature.

In the appearance of the other prisoner.s (llugh Mwloran and Edward Trayera) there was nothing re- mnarkable ner's Inquisition, for the wilful murder of James (}rainge, at Rub- I ley-house, in the county of HlertfDrd, on the 31st of December la-t to which indictment the prisoners severally pleaded " not guilty." Patrick Connolly and Hugh Moran were then indicted for man- slaughter nf the said James Grainge, at the time and place already mentioned. The Jury were then sworn. MIr. Etnapp, Clerk of the Arraigns, then stated the indictment against the prisoners. Air. Sergeant TArny then proceeded to state the case for the pro- sccution, but was interrupted by Mr. Dowt.iNo, counsel for the prisoners, whoobjected to the Coroner's Inquisition on the groind of informality, it having been signed by eleven of the jurors only. The learned gentleman cited several cases in support of his objection, and argued further, that the wound was not describeI with mifrlcient precision. The words used were, " about two inches and a half ;" but the law required that the wound should have been more fullv and accurately stated. MTr. ADOLPSCrrS followed on the same side, and quoted other cases in support oi the objection to the inquisition. Mr. Justice BEST admitted that it was necessary that a coroner's jury should consist of 12 persons. Mr. ADOLPHS-S then contended that the inquisition must bear thesignaturesofeachandeyery of the 12 jurors, withoutwhich proof of that number having been actuallv sworn upon such inquest, it must be nresumed that the law requiring the presence of such number ofjurors hal not been complied with. The learned gentle- mxn proceeled further to object to the loose and general terms in which the inquisition was framed. M r. Ser,.eant T.%DDY replied, and contended that the objections could not bc supported The allegation was, that the wound was given in theleft arm,and was of thelength of" about two inchcsand a half," which descriptlon was sufiiciently particular and full. !hIr. Justice BEST said it was desirable that tllese matters should be fixed bv act of Parliamnent; but, until they were, the law, as it stood at present, mlust be complied with. The learned Judge stated his opinion, that the word " about" was ton indefinite ani( uncertain, even in a special demurrer; antI surely that which couldi nat be nrsintained .n a special demurrer, must not 00 atimitte(t in a crimtinal case of so much inportanice as that before the Court. lie was therefore clearly of opinion, that for that remson the inquisition ought to be quashed. Witsh respect to the other ground, he should not deliver anv opinion upon it. The prisoncrs, Elizabeth Browne, Amelia ;lorgan, and Edward Trayers. were ordered to be removed from the bar, and the trials of Patrick Connolly and Hligh iiMoran, for manslaughter, wvas ordered to be proceeded withi. Mr. Sergeant TADDY stated the case for the prosecution, iudoing which he found it necessary to enter into some details of occurrences -which took place preyious to the date of the commnission of the crime for which the prisoners were then on their trial. It would appear that the prisoner Connolly had been assistant surgeon in the city of Duiblin -artillery, and subsequentlV resided in Regent-strect, Lon- don. It would also a ppear that a verdict for the sunm of 2501. with costs, amounung in the whole to upwards of 5001., had been obtain- ed against Connolly by a person of the name of Andrews. That atricT search was made fbr the prisoner in order to enforce payment of that verdict. but which search was for some tirise ineffectual : at Icntrth it was discorcred that the prisoner was livmng and concealed in Rablev.house. in the county of Hertfontl, antid thither certain persons went for the purpose of arresting him, aAd in whicrl the transactions then about to be investigated had their origin. Tue learned ser- geant tihen proceeded to state the particuilars of the cmse wvhich our readers -ill find tietailed in the evidence; after which ne stated the law anplicabie to the case, and qguoted the case of the " King v. Cook." referre(d to by J,ord lfale, in which Cook had shot a bailiff who 'ttemnpted to break into a house to execute a wvrt of capias ad satio ficfira nn, and for which crime CoAke was convicted of man. slaughter. In another case, where a warrant was addressed generally - _ _ . .1t.t . & -i : i . . l]tet nutof hi,. own Jurisdiction but in the present instance the case was different as the constable was specially authoriUcdl to execute it in the parish. rin Cuirris's case. which was to be lound in Foster, page lQ(,. there was a difrercnce of opinion between the Judges, nine of them holding it to be sufficient to describe the warrant gene. rally toentitle them to force an entry. In the present case the p-i.ontr had been matde fullv aware of the authority by which the officers were arned vet he resisted, and the consequent death of Grainge was undoubtedly manslaughter, and manslaughter, t.o, of the nmos. aggravate(d charrcter, app)roaching closely to the con- finesofrnurder. The learned Sergeant then stated the law as ap- plicable tn lodgers and their rights, applying then to the case of the sirisoner Connolly, who was inot the tvowner of' but merely a visiter or lodrer in, Rable;-house. ile would not trouble the jury with any fusther observations. btit should proceed to call witnesses to prove t1,e case which he had stated. The persons concernied in the prosec .'ution had no ohiect in view but the attainment and furtherance of rublic justire, anid let the verdict of the jury be what it tmight, they would satisfied. W5itrneaws were the called; but their evidence was so similar to that already publishc in the report of the inquest, that it is not necessary to repeat it. iSlr. Connoliv was then called upon for his defence, and he put in 2 statenment. wihich was read by illr. KNAMP. Hlc then called the following vitnesses:- Thomas Locke. headborough of Ridge. proved distinctly that the , arrant w;s never roa-. -Iu triaL I,zn mu Li n' *f..iU di5h-ided between himself and the other constables, if he would break oncO the house and sscure Mr. Connolyv. tr. XWalmsley. a Middlesex sheriff s officer, proved that Mr. S:evenahad applied to himn to execute a warrant against Mlr.Coninoliv, in j!erdtordshire. wrhich lie refused to do.

Captain N .stor proved that iAir. Connolly liad been an inmate in his houce at Rp.bley for three mosn hs preNious to this transaction.

London, Monday, March 1, ...
The Paris papers of Friday, which arrived last night, are more than usually curious to thos6 who take an interest in the internal politics of France. They contain the result of the first day's election in the capital-a result for which those only could be prepared svho have for the last two months been watching the manceuvres of the Government agents, or calculating the inflaence of Ministerial corrup- tion, in a kingdom where representative government is little understood, and where no independent bodies exist to op- pose Ministerial usurpations. It may be necessary to re- mind some of our readers, who are happily relieved'from the necessity of attending habitually to French politics, that in France there are two kinds of elective bodies-that of districts, and that of departments; that the former con- sists of all who pay direct taxes to the amount of 300 francr a year or upwards, and the latter of a certain proportion of the former who pay the highest census; that the electo- ral colleges of districts were convoked for the 25th of Fe- bruary, and those of departments for a subsequent day. The district or arrondissement colleges of Paris, or the depart- ment of the Seine, are eight in number, and the candidates pIJue~I iy je 14er-41, wrtit[, er! ejenerair oy, unt plUpUt=U Vy L"u 1,11), ilur LIICILI, r ena OY f late deputy; M.

SALLE LON, and M. TERNAUX, the great manufacturer. The number of voters in each college was as follows :-in the first, 1,6502; in the second, 1,360; in the third, 1,305 in the fourth, 1,318 ; in the fifth, 1,080; in the sixth, 861 in the seventh, 1,118 ; and in the eighth, 456. In the first colloge General Foy, opposed to .MI. Le Bnuq, obtained 749 votes against 743, but neithex having gained the absolute majority of 752, the elcetion was declared incomplete, and a new scrutiny was fixed for the following day. A similar obstacle occurred to a perfect return from the second college, where iM. LAFITTE had 673 votes op. posed to 678, the absolute majority being 6S1. In the third, M. CASTMIL PaRRIERF was returned by a majority of 6i4 over his antagonist; and in the fourth .IM. B. C ONSTANT was declared deputy by a majority of 13S. But here the success of the Liberals was arrested. T.M. PELESSERT, DELABORDX, SALLERON, and TERN Aux, having lost their elections in favour of their respective antagonists, M. HARI- CART DE THURY, M. D? LAPANOUZF, Al. Coc111N, and IM. LEROY. WVho these latter persons are, with the ex. ception of M. de LArANOUztE, the government banker, we believe it would puzzle a skilful Parisian elector to state, but it is sufficient that they were proposed by the Treasury, and supported by the influence of AMinisterial corruption. Mlenaces, promises, direct interferenee, and even positive dishonesty in making out the list and returns, we are as- sured, have not been spared. The Quotidiennc tells us tnat the successful Ministerial candidates were proclaimed deputies amid cries of Vive le Roi. If tLe clainms ol their antagonists were thus to be considered as opposed to the existence of the throne, a republican, or an enemy of the BouRtoxs,could desire nothing better than afree election. It is stated in these papers that Ml. BERTIN DS VAUX has been returnedfor VersaiUes, and that General LArAYETTE has lost at Meaux.

Mr. C[, RNES said a f'ew 'words to the same effect. Lord MI L,TON thought that the agricultural interest would not be injured by the change which had taken placc. Sir E.

The hon. member also presetsted a petitinii from Exeter, praying for some alteration in the coal duties, owing to their partial and unfair operation. iMlr. NEWMAN earnestly called the Chiancellor of the Ex- chequer's attention to the justice and necessity of attending to the pratyer of this petition. Air. H. G. BE NNET said, that the repeal of unjust taxes ought fronm day to day to be forced upon the consideration of his lajesty's ministers. Lord 31ILTON concurred in Isis hon. friettl's geiieral recom- mendation, altliough lie doubted if sea-borne coal was the tax which ouglit first to be taken off: They ought rather to call for the reduction of those taxes which more generally affected the country at large. Lle admitte(d that the coal-tax was in its origin impolitic, but us- terests had grown up under it, which might require consideration: at dll eventst, the reduction of the window tax ought first to be considered. Mr. GRENFELL said, that the inequalitv of this coal-tax was a sufficient reason to cal. tor its repeal. Mr. N. CALVERT concurred in this opinion. lfr. W. SMI2TH strongly urged the repeal of the tax. The CHANCELLOR 6f the EXCHEQUER said, that as so many appeals liad beeni made to hin, he was afraid that the ground of his proceeding respectitig this tax had been misunderstood. In the first place. lie had never affected to maintain that titis tax was not unequal in its operation, and did not press with severity upon parts of t'le couintry. But as it was a duty which had subsisted for up- wards of a century, and one, therefore, for the introduction of which the present gencration were not responsible itwas necessary to con- sider a little the various interests which had grown up with the mea- sure. He d4id not mean to say that those interests ought to operate as a bar to the reduction of the tax, but merely that they were entitled to some consideration. He thought, therefore, that this was not, consideing the other taxes of the country, one which ought at once to be repealed. He thought himself right hi the course which he had begun to take respecting this tax, and he felt that in taking off the 3s. 4d., which affected the population of this great metropolis, they wvere administering essential relief, whichl they would not have been doing had they taken off the same aniount by spreading it over a larger surface at one shilling, or some such sten. He thought it riglt to begin wvith reducing what he deemed the more aggravated part of this tax, which certainly was felt by the inhabitants of Lon- don. He could not admit the priniciple of regulating taxation, upon the supposition that those were tthe wealthier part of the community, and could best bear a larger sum of taxes: the tax affected them more severely, and he had begun with repealing the most objection- able part of' it. Sir Al. *Y. RIDLEY rose to protest against the injustice with which the Chancellor of the Exchequer was treating the coal-owners of the north. The alteration which he had announcead his inteation of making gave the inina coal-owner advantages in. the niatlcet fgar superiorto those which it gave to those of the,north. The duty on inland coal, which haad formherly been 7s. 6d., was now reduce to1 Is. a ton; wbiltethe,du on gea-borne coal, which had. formerly been 9s. 4d., wita only reduced to 6s. a chaldron. He did not washi to have any additional burden placed on the inland coal, but he did wish the northern coal to come into the market on equal terms with it. The house would see, that under tie exi!sting arrangementst .that was completely impossible. He now gave notice, that immie- diately after the recess, he should move for the repeal of all the duties on coals carried co letwise. Mvr. LITTLETON declared his intention of supporting the pro- pition of his right hen. friend the Chancellor of- the Exchiequer, and contended that even the duty of Is. a ton on iniland coal was- more than ouglht to be imposed upon it. Mr. S. WORTLF~Y considered the proposition of the Chancellor of the Exchequer to be unfair to the coal-owners of the north, as it allowed their opponents to bring into the mnarket, at an easy- rate, ai cheaper andI an iriferior article. Alir. HUMIE said that hie couldI suggest a p an to the right hon. the Chancellor of the Exchequer, by which ble could get rid of the difficulty which his proposition appeared to have created. That plan was to take ofFaIllthe dulty on bothkinds of coal. (A laugh.) Indeed, he wondtered how the right hon. gent. could allow a sinking fund of 5,000,0001. to continue for the mere purpose of purchiasing 3 per cent. stock at 95, when, by putting an, end to it, he could allow the coal-duties, the window..ta:i, and all the assessed taxes to be re- pealed immediately. He trusted that thebhon. gentlemen who com- piLained so much of'the pressure of the coal-duties, would at length see the necessity of compelling the right hon. gentleman to give up his darling scheme of a sinking fu nd. The petition was then brought Up. On the question that it be laid on the table, u Lord MILTON took the opportunity of complaining of the policy whiichi Government had pursued upon thais question. They had given up a revenue amauinting to 800,0001. annually, and in so doing had benefited a Particular class of the community residing withiin cer- tain limiited geographical boundaries. Now, when Government re- mitted taxation, they should take care that the relief which, they grantedl shouldi be of a general, and not of a partial description. Sir JOHN NEWPTORT could not agree with the noble lord who had spoken last. Hlis noble friend seemted to have forgotten that the particular class of the comniunity to which he had alluded had, for nearly, a century past, been aggrieved by the unjust anid par- tial operation of the coal duties ; and surely his noble friend would not argue that it was not entitled to relief, becauise it had submitred patient.ly for many years to tke grievance which had been imposed uponit.He cntededthattheChacellor of the Exchequer was onl peforingan ct f jstie i eqalizing the operation of the Mr. M BERLYthougt tha thecouxntry gentlemen were not dealng airl wih te Chnceler f te Echeqer ponthis occa- sion Itwasrater ncosistnt n tosewhohadsupp~orted the system of a sanking fund, now to come fowrdade thie adviser of it that they wouldl not bear the taxes hy which that sinking futnd was to be supported. It was consistent enoughi in his lionourable friend the member for Aberdeen to press for a repeal of taxes, be- cause he had always oprosed the scheme of' a sinking fund; but as for the honourable gentlemen who now called for a repeal of ta,ces, after supporting the sinking fund, whiere, he would ask, was their consistency? The CHIANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER satid, that he should have no objection to let the resolutions regarding tie coal du- ties he re-comoiitted, in order to giv-e the hon. baronet an opportu- nity of stating hiis views regarding thecm. Trhere were: no bills to be considered on Thursday next, r%nd if the hon. baronet would that evening mnove that the house do resolve itself into a committee oni the coal duties on Thiursday next, lie would not offer the slightest opposition to the motion.

PLUNKETT rose to miove tIme order of the day for the second reading of "1the burials in Irelanid bill."' The right hon. gentleinan observed, that he would not have brouglht it torward at that moment, if he hiad not had somie reason to flatter himiself, f'rom the general opinion which hie had collected fromn all sides of time hiouse on the measure, that there was ino likelihood of any nsaterial objection being offered to it, nor of any discussion arising that would be at all calculated to produce a? protracted debate. Thec house was already aware of'tlie general scope and object of the bill. It related to the burials, in Ireland, of persons diss-enting fromi the doctrines and disciplineof'theEstablishiedChu rch,with thoscformss anal cereniionies which wvere peculiar to the religion professed by thetiis. Every onermustfeel that tisis was asubject of extreme imipottance, as it related to the moral feelings, passions, and prejudices, of the grcat bulk of the population of' Ireland ; arid they mirust also perceive, that it was a question ofthtle greatest delicricy, because, as it referredt to circumstances which must occur its the pirecincts of Protestant church-yards, it would naturally excite the attention of those who felt an interest in the Protestant establishiment. He therefore ap. roachoeld the subject withi a considerable degree of' caution, woul not say of alarm, becauise the ieasure had been so umaturely considered, and so nicely prepared, withi reference to both sides of the question, that while it would make the law easy as to the burial of dissenters, it would not create any just alarm in tire minds of those who were connacted with the Established Church. (Hear.) When lie stated that it was a subject of great difficulty and delicacy, he begged to observe. that it was not on that account that he had taken it out of the handfs in whiichi it had been previously placed. Wlhether he coiasidered the question with a view to its inm- portance, its difficulty, or its delicacy, he knew of no hands better suited te brin it forward effectually thans those of his right hon. fred(Sir.5 Newport.) The course whiich his righit hon. friend took in the debate relative to education in Ire- land, which occurredl a few evenings since--the tone of temper and moderation withi whichl he introduced that sub- ject, proved very clearly that no man was more fit to concdliate the opinions and sooth the passions of all parties. (Hear.) Still, hiow- rever, he thought it would be felt that it was better tliis question slsould be taken up by one who spoke the opinions of' the Giovern- ment of the country, rather thian by any, individual uinconnected with the Government. MAn:y reasons could be adduced in support of this position. Itwas right, mn the firs4~lace, that the public sliould know the anxious solicitude which the Government entertained with respect to the welfare of the people of Irelandl; and next, it was impor- tant that the question shoutld be now brought forward in such a manner as to reconcile all classes to it. This end could be mocha better attained by the Government, than if the mieasure were introduced by any individual, however respectable. Having saidI so.nuch to excuse the Government of the country for entertaining this measure, it would perhaps be expected that he should state some reason for its not haviug been taken u sooner. Many cir- cumstances existed in Iceland, which would hoave made it uniwise Iin Gonvernment to have intrfered with a --etln of this kind at an earlier period. Whatever inconveniencies existed in the actual state of the law, (and he admitted those inconveniencies were immany 4nd considerable), yet still it was found that very few of them were of a practical nature. Government tbterefbre did not think it neces- sary to legislate on theoretical principles, so long as tele existing law appeared to work well. Bat a new state of things haR sprung up, and it was now found expedient to make some change in the Law. The first thinz it was proposed to do was, to repeal the act of the 9th William 1f. cap. 7. He believed rwithi respect to this point, there was an universal consent, on the part of every person con- cerned. He would now state what the object of the act of William was. It was probably known to most gentlemen in that house, that there were in Ireland a number of abbeys and convents, the sites of places formerly used for religious worship, and vested in eccle- siastical persons: those places were looked on with considerable respect, if not reverence, by all classes of people in Ireland. They had been founded from motives of piety, and though soinetimes teranted by superstition and bigotrv, yet it could not be denied that they were often the abodes of religion and charity. From them, in former times, the blessaings of hospitality had been dis- seminated amongst the poor and needy. Those places had long since been taken out of the possession of the ecclesiastical pro- prietora,and vested int the several members of the state. But they were still viewed by the people with feelings of respect and veneratipn. Though no longer u;sed as laces of religious worship they were much resorted to as places of burial, not merely for the ioman Ca- tholics Of the country, but very frequently for the Protestantsi; and he felt that the remasLins of those ancient edifices were not the least interesting objects of contemplation to those persons who visited Ireland. Looking to the disturbances, religious andl political, by which that country was torn, it was a point on which the mind re- posed witb some degreeofpleasure,whenit refleted that in those ceme. telies the~Pctstntahtrd the Catisole, petsortg of alml Tab ud sezsua 5iofls,wereburicain common. However they mighthavedilfraredinilife, 'in death they were suifered to rePose together :and thec pOae of their interment was not made a scene for the display of acrinionious feel- tng and unseemly asperity. This stale of things had prevailed, he believed, more or less, ever gince the Reformato.I utse exItrrdnaaryp tat, under these circumstances,teacofhe9hf ilimwa passed, by which burials in those places were forbid- den as well to Protestants as to Catholics. It seemed extraordinary, when the oractice was carried on without offeince to any party that it sliould have been interfered witi lby this law. He" believed it was not with a view to any direct interference with the rights of sepulture of any religious sect thiat the law was enacted, but that it was framed in a spirit of jealousy, which could not bcar that any religious feeling should be kept alive with respect to those old places of worship. Certainly, whatever might hiave been the object of the act, its provisions were opposed to those aff'ections a-nd decen- cies, with reference to the deceased, which ought always to be re- -spected. The act was framed, but it fell still-born, as all mneasures must do when opposed to the feelings anid sentiments of a c-ountry. in no one instance, for a series of y'ears? had the custom w-ich had so lon~ prevailed been interfered with-in no one instance had this obnoxious law been carried into effect. If, then, there was an act on their statute-book, to enforce which would be con- sidiered a crime, anid to infringe it would be looked on as a duty, it ought not to be suffered to remain (hear); and ore M~eet of the nmeasure now before the house was to repeal this act. (er.) The house would, however, observe, that there was a clause regulating and narrowing that repeal. Tfhe reason of this; was;, that many of those places were diverted from their original pur- pose, and were possessed by individuals; and care should be takcen that no interference with private property was admitted under this measure, which would be the case if persons who were not in the habit of usinig particular places of this description for bury- ing grounds were suffered to do so now. He would now, as shortly as he could, aDply himself to the more import- ant provisions of t Is Ill so far as it professed to give the right of burial in Protestant cliurchyards, according to the reli- gious ceremonies of the parties whouse friends were broughit there f'or interment. The noble lord who presided over the Governmnent of I reland, and who had applied himsel2f to thiis, as well as to every other subject connected withi the intere-sts of' that country felt the deepast anxietty for the success of thisi measure; and he (M1r. Plun- kett) knew of nio other reason why he now adtdressed the h.ouse ext rpt thiast from hiis consta.it intercour-se with the noble lurd he liad the best means of learning his views on the subje-ct. This mneasure originated with. the nioble lord, and hadl re- celved the unanimous sanction of his Mlajesty's Govern. ment. The twvo grcat objects of thie bill were these-to secure to dissenters of every denomination the righit of intermient ac- cording to their own forms and ceremonies, and to take care, at the same time. that nothing was done otffensive to the dignity or sub- versive of tile security of the Protestanit reli on. Before hie pro- ceeded furthier, it was necessary that he shoulfoddescribe what was tire actual state of the lawv on this subject as, it now existed. In the first place, hie wouild endeavour to put the house in possession of what was the situation of the Protestant parson as to the right of burial. Gentlemnen, doubtless, knew that the free- hold of the chiurchyvard was vested in the rector. The churclhyard was hiis' freehold, andI no person could enter it, unless by Iiis leave, withiout commnitting a trespass. But,' besides the right tvhich belonged to hiim as the possessor of the soil, he wvas, as the parson, empowered by law to superintend the mode of' grunting ChristiaLn burial in the church-yard. He was to grant she right ofrintermient; and, by the Act of Uniiformiity, he was to read thie burial service of the Cfiurch of Ireland, by law established, and no other. He could not, hiimself, read any other service; neither could he depute any person to read a different service in the church- yard. lie could emnploy another gentleman in orders to readthe ser- vice of the ChUrCh ot Irelanid; but he could not ailowv any laymian, of a mnemiber of any, other coninisinity, to read it. If this law were acted on, antd the Protestant clergy, were in eviry instance to insist on reading this service, andl going through the rites and ceremio- niies prescribed by the Chiurch of Irelaind. it 'would virtuially, deprive the great body of the people of the right 'of interment. Considering what thei tigiouis opinions were, such . rciewudaeutt actual exclusion. He did not mean to argue whether their f'eeling on this subject wras a righit one or not: it was his duty merely to state the fact. The opinions, fecelings, anti prejudices, of thec people of Ireland were such, that if thie principle were insisted on, it would actually amount to an exclusion froLn thie right of interment of all the Catholics at least, if not of al the dissenters. This was the situation of the law, on one side, now let the hiouse miark what it was on the othier. Every peson hiad a righit to interinent in the Protestant churchyard ofth parishi whiere lie died. His relaitives had a right to claimi it : but they were entitled to claim it, subject to that right of' the Protestant parson whicli lie hind juxst mention. d. But, sup pose he perf'ormedl the rites ot the P'rotestant churcli, or that he waved their perfoniiance, there was no law which2 in either case, prohbitd th peformnceof dsseting rites in a Protestant' churcyard.Therewas n law herethe Protestaxt parson had dishared isfuntios, r avr thm,to prevent Roman Catholic cereonie fro beig peformd inthe clhurchlyard, however ostetatousy clebate, o hoeve cacultedto roduice feelings of ainin he in oftheProesantclegymn.There were a numbier of laws passed in Ireland, afe teRfration, on the subject of the Catholic priests. By tlaose laws, besidies inflicting penalties on priests coming from abaroad,teewr others whicts also imposed penalties on all priests wowr o registered in a regular mnanner. By the 21st and 22doftelt ig t.ie greater part of these penialties wyere rensoved, udrcrinesicdions and condlitionis. Onieofthens was, that thiebenefit of those actsshiould not extend to any Catholic priest who officiated in a Prot,estant church- yard. It was; supposed, that under this clause it was a crimiinal or pensl act for a priest to perf'orns the burial service in a Protestanit chiurchiyard; but time supposition was entirely erroneous it had no other eff"ect than saying, that thie Catholic priest who per. foirned the service in a Prote'stant churchyard, shiould not have the benefit of that particular law. He was liable to be indicted, not for havinig perfornied the service, but for not having dulyvregistered him. self under the former act, wvhich he was not- requre to do, provided he obeyeI the restrictions enumerated in the 21st anid 22d of' Geo. III. rut whiatever miight have been the state of thie law on this subject, growing out of' the 21st and 22d of tao'. ItI., All difficulty was removed, in Ireland, by ttie law of 17914. By that lawv, it was not an illegal act for the Catholic priest to officiate. He could not be itidicted for it-he coulmt not be prevented fromn doing it. If the contrary wvere admiitted-if thie Protestant clergy. nman h'ad a right to insist on) performning the secrvice of the Church of freland-it would totally exclude the whiole body of' Romani Catho- lics from internient. If the Protestant clergymnan chose to come in and perfornm his service, or if he waved his right to officiate, there % as no law to prevent the Catholic priest front exercisinig his func- tions. This was the state of the law ; and, considlerinig the [situation of the parties. it was fraught wvith all the serds and elements of discord and dissension. (Hear, hear.) But thoughi stichi was the fact, thoughi the state of the law was calculated to prodlue conflictions and collisions between those opposing parties, it was pleasing to state. that, wvith very fewadreecetos thiose elemients of disLord and dissenision hadotreed nyf those effects whichk might ha-ve beeti expectedfo im n would, inileed, almnost praise this state of the law, since it gave an oppiortunity to people of all sects, and of all religious opinions, to display feelinigs thec most liberal and charitable. He must say, anid lie saidl it wvith great retspect for the parochiial clergy, that, until of late yeats, they had not, in the smsllest degree, interfered withl the right of intermuetit in Protestant chiurchyards. They hlad forborne to exercise a dluty which wag imposed on them by the common law of the country, and by the Act of Uniformity, because thiey felt that it would crea te uneasiness and dissatisfacti'on. The Catholic clergy. mien also conductedI themselves in a moat exemplary mianner. He believed the Catholic body in geneial were buried without any ceremoniy; but it was customary, on the interment of Catholics of th,e better orders, to have, more or less, a sort of service performed by the priest. &onietimes he appeared in. the stole, a sort of black robe, and soinetitiies he olliiaated in his plain clothies, but he ntever presminmed to offer any thing offlensive to the Protestant chiurch. This was the way in which the niatter remained, i:ntil lately, without any degree of off'ence being taken by the Protestant clergy. This should be particularly statd, becauise it proved that thiere was not thiat unmneal tex ture in tire sentimncits of thiose who held different reliiuoiins in Ireland, th)at ought to shutout allhIoPeof accom sdtin n tatoughkt to lead themi to believe thlat it was impossible to smooth dowii those religious feelings, thte asperity of whlich had been the bane and curse of Ireland. (Hear, hear.) Wlhen matters remained tlius-wlien, on die one hantd, there wvas no interference, and on the other, no offence, he thought it would have beets unwise if Government had legislated for prospective eytls that perliaVs mighit never hiave arisen. But about four or five years back, thie pdfi formance of religious ecrens onies by a, Catholic priest, in a Protestant chiurchvard, was resisted. At the tinre this took ~place, 4uch occurrences were cexremely unfrequent ; and Go- vermen thugh itbeter o gt rd of themi by giving con- cilatoy avic,rahertliss y eertngthe strong hiand of nuttiority, or y cllng n Prlamet t rke hebusiness up. In the course of lst ear thecomlaits n ths sbjet wre greatly increased. Whehertherigt ws mre reqcisly laisedby the Catholic clegy,r cntnde fo i a iffren dgre ormaner from what had bencustomAary, he coul not say; bu a ood deal of alarm had cer- tany been excited. Vnethter that alar a just or not, he could not discover, and he believed it would evr difficult to ascertain the fact. If one person were asked wh,ether the ceremiony was the same as was heretofore perfonnied, the answer was in the af- firmative; but the next individual of whomn inquiry was miade would state cxactly the severse. In feet, inidividuals s'eemed to be guided rather by their prejudices, than by anyv desire to elicit the truth. H e therefore thoughlt it would be niuchi better to leave the circumstances out of which tins alarmi had arisen in the amibiguity in wich hey ere lace at reset,than to attempt to explore them (Her, har.)Whatver ad ben done by tke Protestanit clegy,was hefel covined,peroried in the discharge of a conscentios dut.

Thie (Iversi- ment, as he had arayosre,wr anxious to 9ssoth all diiffer- ecires, by friendlyadcniitr advice; but it at length be- caine nemesst? to emiewathreal state of the law was on thist subject. If tne law were clear and plain-if its operation appeared calculated to produce peace and union-then it was right that the people sheuld know it : buit the case was greatly altered wher the law carried withil itself the elements of hostility. wheni ttie con- cord which had so long prevailed arose, not fromn a knowledge of the state of tie law, but fro,n an ignoraxce of it. It would have been productive of the most unpleasant consequences, if it had been bold- ly stated, " Youi, the priest, have a right to burv this man-you may enter the churchyard with bell, book, and candle, and perform the service in the most offensive manner possible." If the priest had the power to exclaim to the Protestant clergynian, " I an doing this by the authority of the Governmnent, who have told me what the law is on the subject," it would be the cause of constant feuds. 'his er- nicious knowvledge of their rights mulst end in continual conflicts between the liarties; and there fore it wvas necessary that the law should not remain in its present situation. Hieretofore, |the lair had not been insisted on-the proceedings of the Catholic clergy had been little interfered With. Had it been other- wise, the Catholics of Ireland would be driven from the tonibs of their ancestors. (Hear, hear.) It was not a claiimi of ambition which they put forward-it wims not a political privilege which they demanded. What they contended for was the off'spring-of those feelings of devotion and piety, which were inherent in the nature of man, which were wholly independent of adventitious circuisii stances. There was no clime so barbarous, no igniorarce so pro- tound, nophilosophy so arrogant, as to deny the just:ee of that feeling which wasimplantedin thenature of man, and which induced him to look with affectionate regret to the spot where the remains of Ihis an- cestry were deposited. It was not thie creature of philosophy: it was the Yoice of that Being, who, wheni he has doomed us to the grave, inspires our hearts with the confident hope that our affections and feelings will exist beyond that goal. (Hear.) If, howeyer, the Ro- man 6athoric priest were openly told that he might perform his ce- remonies in the most ostentatious manner, such a proceeding would gkVe Alsz3, ahid not suijatidally, to t'he Protestant. It WAS there.. fare neceasry that some alteration should 'be-uade iwttlsh Ilswr ' ni1 the question was,whichwes thebestm'nodeof deaiingwjtb thesubjcC5 There were three mods, the hon. and learnedjentlesna,,icojtiield- in which the existing law rmight be altered. rFlirst, it would be pos-' sible to give separate burial-grounds to the Roman Catholicg anid &h Protetatads; and this idea had, in fact, occurred to some Catholmds of influence; but he thought, for his own part, and he was con- vinced the house would go along with him in the feeing, tha of all remedies for the present evil, no other so objectionabi coul 2he found. The allotmnent of separate burial-places would not only, like the givinig asepaate places of education, tend to streng~0thea line of dentarcatioti talready subsisting between the two reli- gzions, sand to peeclude for ever all hope of that union in hieart and political opinion which every sincere lover Of Ire- land must bope f1r, whatever he might think as to its im-. mediate probability, but it wouild go to outrage the very com-. monest and yet msnot sacred feclinqs of humanity. Is would have the effect, the house would see, in many cases, of selsaraitti. families as to their place of buriaL. A. husband could not be buriea rith his wife-.a brother near his brotsher..a father by the side of his son ; it would hardly be necessary to say more upon the iXmpracslc.. bility of introducing such an arrangement. The next proposition, then, he would supppoee to be this-to make the right o'f case of interment to the dissenter in Irelandi an absolute right-to have it a stern and unbending mandate upon the Protestant parson to admit him to burial, and then to restrict the exercise of this absolute right, so as to prevent its heij,7 used in a manner ofFensive to the feelings of the Protestant. Thi. plan, certainly did not carry, upon the I'c of it, so mnuch positive unfitness as the forrmer; but still the bouse would hardlv find it to, be a wise one, even if it was practicable, which he dou-bted:. for the great difficulty in the way of such a regulation woslld be, not the unIllingn ofte Protestant parson to give up the absolute right, busis isailiytdoso.

Cai mihth put hwver, in aL moment, in whichi the parson wsette to refuse. He was not bound to. bury a person wode excommunicated ; or one who hadl never been baptized; or one who had commnitted isuicide. In fact, he was generally to judge of the time, the convenience, and the fitness of the thtug being done; andifrhbeassent wasnot compulsory in the case of a Protestant, there were additional reasons in shun. dance whv it should not be so in the case of a Roman Catholic. When a dissenting clergyman applied to a Protestant clergyman for termission to bury, the Protestant clergyman was bound to judge, rst whether st were one of the- applicant's flock. Hie mutst ascer- taiti whether the deceased was really a Roman Catholic or not; he-. cause there hafl bcen case, and not verY uncommonlY, in whitih tliat pointlitad been disputed. T'here were othercitrcumnstances to becon- sidered. 'Who was the applicant, for instance ? Was he, as lite Professed himself, a Protestant clergyman? He uaiight be some mad fianatic jumnper, whio had no right to mak-e any such applics-a tion. All these were matters of whicl the Pro~testatclet,,-ivtnanhad to judg:e; and, if anabsolute mandateuwas tobegiven, t4ey~wouldI all be bpecial matters to be provided for. Further specist)u,...~eUld hiave to be considered-the mode and rnanner of pcrfbrmbiqt9~cere- mony, the tapers, and other circumstances of ostentation in thie Ca- tliolic, whlich went "ceyond the modestyv of the Protestant church. But slt prsn blae arrangements which could hardly fail to satsfyallparie; for, as its avowed intention was to gire the dis- senter the benefit of intermenit according to the rites of his o%at church, in aPratestant cliurchyard, the Protestant clergYman could no longer allege the difference of religion as a reason for wvithlitold.. ing the permission to bury. He repiiated, that the present act was, one for which the Catholics of Irelanid ought to feel most grateful; for it was in fact a charter of toleration, a direct declaration that every person in Ireland, of wrhatever religious belief, was entitled to thec ease of intermecnt accoding to the rites of his ownt persuasion. The law, asrgarded its efrects, was Put into the- strongest practical shape.TePoetn lrya a to be applied to. If lie thiought fit to refuse permission, he was hound to state in writing to the applicant, and immediately, the cause of' hiis refusal; and mnoreover, forLhwith to certify, the same camuse to, his ordlisary-, or the bishop of his diocess, who forwarded it again, without delay, to the Lord Lieutenant, or chief government af' the country. Titus there could beno reason to apprehend refusal onthie existing ready ground-.-that of the diffierence of religion in ithe party making application; and stiUl less would there be any danre,- of a light or frivolous objection, because it would be known that that obj:ction was at once.to gobefore authority-. And farther, with regard to the extent of the act, it was v-irtually mandatory, thiough not man- datory in terms ; for he stated it as x principle o'f law, and if he was wrong lie ulighit be contradicted., that where a'public futnCtiOnarv' was. legally etabled to do certaitn acts which were for the goodi of the commnunity, the law wliich inade it laswful for himn to do those acts, in fact made it his duty to do them. So that, on the onie hand], the acet was atandatory, for the dlergymian stood bound (in such a case) to do that which it was lawvful tor hint to do ; and, on the other handl, it would he observed, that in the provision for the service to be performed, there was no permission for the buriatl service generally, but specially for the service of the grave-an important potnt, b;ecause, in thie Roman liturgy, the "1 service of the grav-e" wvas not the " burial service ;- the " buriaL service" involving the mustatpompous display of the Sites of the Catholic religion; and tha " service of the grave" being merely a short prayer and psalmn, at- tended with no parade of ceremony whatever. Still the law, no doubt, as it would stand, might by possibility be abused. HIe did not de- ny tat t miht.It ws pssibe, n te one hiand, that a Protes- tant clrgymanmight, n defince ofconsequiences, capriciously withold is ermision an, onthe the han, thre ight cases arie, n wichthepriilee raned igh betakn gos advantage of. ~ut t wa no, inhis iew,thespirt ofratisallegislation, to mke awsto eetextemeandbarly ossblecases.

Wlith regard to thie Protestant Establishment, he was net surprised that they shouldi feel some alarm as to the new law at first. It was certainly, up to a certain pointt, the introduction of' a new right and pwF it was giving the Catholic church a right in the churchyardowfetrhe Prote-stunt chiurch; but a great dea of this objection vanished when gentlemien considered, that the law in fact only took away atI right which the Protestant clergyiiian had never exercised. If it was said that the Protestant paisbon had only abstainedl froiii using his right, because the ceremony performed 'hail been performied in the private honics of the Catholic, and not openly, as it would be now, in tie Protestant churchyard-this might be said, and the case stUi would be exactly, where it was before : for the very avowal conceded a principle just as strong as ilata lie now contended for. The cereiilony wvas performed in the private house? Tme ; but the Protestanit clergyman knew that it was perfornied there. Hie not only knew it, but lie mnust, of nrces. sity be taken (by his owvn act) to be cognizant of it; because ho coufd never be suppoe-d to be permitting hod ies to be interred with- out any ceremony of Chrisitian burial. WVe could not bera that the Protestant parsoni had bean permitting human bodies to be thrown into the ground like so many dogs; he c-ould only stand justified its liis forbearing to perforni the rites oth Christian burial according to Ids own religion, by the ktiowledge that those rites, according to another form, had been performed already; so that, in fact, lie ac- knowledged that the per?ormance of' certain rites according to the manner of the Catholic faith, gave a body- that title to coi.e into his Protestant church-yardl, which, without those rites, it could not have had. The act before the bouse went, in principle, no tarther~ than this.-.there wa nothing new in the effect of what it did, the novelty was only In the forns. No rational Protestant parson would complain of being permnitted by law to wave that right, which he had been all along accustomed to wave, w4ith the law azgainst hiim in so doing. And he (Mtr. Plunkett), in the confidence that his measure would satisfy all parties, should sit down by movi'ng that die bill shouldl be read a seroead time. Bill re2~&a second diane.

BRITISH MUSEUM. ?4,547 being asketl for the British Mluseum for the year 1824- Mr. BENNET rose to make a general coinplaintof the sate of the Museumn, and of the manner in which it was managed. He had read with much attention an article which some time since appeared in The Ediaburg,h Review upon the subject; and upon exattination ho found the statements contained in that article substantially true. It' he was not entirely mistakensoiend he had taken sonepains to iiiforn- himself-thewholedepartment ofnatura history in the IA3useunt was in the moss disCacetul state imaginable. The Herbarium was totally destroyed, he birds beasts and insects, were entirely gone. In short, the vaults ofth British Museumwere ik-ethe vault of a common church or chapel-they contained only the dead an buried, and there was no resurrection from them. The hon. gentle nian then proceeded to state particular instances in which the collec tion formerly held by the Mltuscum had become dilapidated. Th insects, which belongae to Sir Hlans Sloane's collection, bat dwindled fromx 5,000 to about 300. This was not the effects of time insects would last, preserved, formore than aO years. Again, it the department of anima:ls, a distinguished traveller some year since had presented his whole most valuable accumulation to th lUaseum: on going somne time after to look at the specimens, he ha been informcd that they were no longer in existence. The want room wvas no excuse to the tristseesforhaving allowee this destructlo of property to go on; theycould havc come to Parlisientfor fuAs -5d it WM3 their duty to bBl'e done so. The hon. member then cast- Vaima the manner in~ whnich the collection. of Sir Joseph Thrnki hlai been neglected by the Aluseum; and qutoted a statement from the ar- ticle to which he liad before alluded in the Edislbur.hl Review, fromr which, it appeared that some of the properties lett bv Sir Joseph Ba.&tiksto e Muitseum, had beeni given away by its offcers,'luinex- atmined, totbe College of Surgeons; that those properties hail been) exchanged by the miembers of the Cnlle.'c of Surgeonas, for certain ODther articles (which they wantedl) out of Bullock's- Iluseumn; and that, fisally, upon the breaking up of Bullock's Muiseum, the samne specimens, being destined to chatnge hands again, hadl beer Purchased by the trustees of the Britiish Museum, who had, in thle first instance, given them away,; and that, at an expense 'Of not less than :several hundred pounds.

If the expense were too great to be repaid by Ithe sale of copies, no doitbe, but that Parliament wottild clieerf'ully gratit a smiall sumn in aid of it, perhaps to the amount of 1001. a-year.

He thought the public was much indebted to Mr. Salt, and he had no doubt. as well from the restult of hlis inquiries among persons who were acquainted with the value of such things, as from his own opinion, that the articles furnished by Mir. Salt were wvorth much more than he had been paid. He even believed tbsev had cost that gentlenian more. ,W7ith the elecdon of the trustees he had nothing to do, but as a body he felt himself obliged to say lie had never iriet witlh zny set of men more anxious to dtscharge their duty to the public. They consisted of a great variety of persons, and amiong thmeni were in- dividuals of the highest rank and talent in the country. When it was remembereth that there was every reason to expect the institution would be benefitted materially bythebounity ofsonie and the exertions of all of them, he thought he did not say too much when he asserted thlat it would be hardly possible to find any mets who could be more safely or advantageously placed in the stations they occupied. This he said in mere justice to gentlemeni whose services had lieen very useful to the public, and for which lie was sorry they had had but little credit. Mr. H.

He was aware that great difference of opinion prevailed on this subject, bust he was sure almost all personis agreed -that it was highly desir- able to edlucate the Cathiolic and Protestanit children in the same school. He doubted, however, the possibility of effecting the object, the great miass of the poor children beilng Catholie, unless the funds dlestined for the purpose should be placed, not exclu. sively under thie direction of Protestants, but that even the larger part shouldI be under the control of Catholics. This Opinioni was supported by the undeniable fact that a great number of Catholics refusedI to receive the benefits of education uipon the terms on whichi they were tendlered to them, and also by, statemeuts which he had received from various part of' Ireland. Ile had thle authiority of a Catholic bishop for stating, that in the 36 parishes of his diocess, there were 10,000 children, all of whomn were fit to go to schiool, but were not able to pay, and who were yet restrained frem- availing; themselves of the schools which were open, ott atccount of the Scriptures being read in them withiout note or comment. This stiplation had induced mane Persons to withdraw their children fromp. thle srhools supiported 13y the Kildlare-street society, and of those whio continued the greater part did so under the inifluencee of fear. The hon. gent. disclaimed any initention of meddling withi the sctbject of religion h e wished that the poor of Ireland shiouldl be taught only to read, and that they should then be left to the clergymen to be taught. the tenets of their respective persuasions. Hle did niot intend to oppose the present miotion, and hie coiicluded be expressing a hope, that in the next session the house wouldi be' in possession of such information on the sub- ject. as would enable it to rendler the advanitage of education in ire- land as genieral as it was necessary. r.- J.L.FORSTER rose, for the purpose of making a few obser- vations respecting the elffect whiich hiad been produiced in the educa- tion of the poor in Ireland by thec Kildare-strect Society. The ho- nouable gnlemani referredI to thle 14th report of that society, whbich, he sad xibait an in' eirestine comparison between the state of educa- tion befo re the establishmnent of that society and since it had been in operatioti.

The Irish peasant was not the victi.m of igniorance, but of misdirected eduication. Gte of the most pernicious practices was, the introdluction of hooks of a diangelrous tenidency into the schools. .llany liersons emrploved their capitals and their intdustry in dissemi- naigb0ookS PUrprPting to be the hiistories and adventures of' rebels, trios, and enterpris,ingnmalef'aciors- TIhe object of thel Kildare-street Society liad been to check this evil practice, and they had so far suc- ceededl, withi the niuntifient. as'istance of Parliamnent.7, that the same persons whio hiad formerly been employed in thtis trade, were now eng-aged in, furnishingz the same schools wvithi books of' a more Useful tenidencv. The Society, feelin that to providle pro- Per miasters for the various schools coninected withi themro was an- I ilier most important noint, had estahlished a model school ini Dub- lin, which. besidres thi~ local goodl which it did its educating 300 of the chiildreni of the artisans of Dublin, preseitted ani opportuniity for qualifvina persons initendinig to become masters, anti fo nhg themn acqiuaintetd withi the principles of the society.

(lie was wamcmlv dimeereul at die conclusion of his speechi.) Sir JOHfN NEWVPORT, in explanation, stated that he never inteittledi to cast any imnputation upon so respectable a body as the Kildare-street Societ)., teho liad certaiiily done much in the cauise of the edlucations of thle Irish poor.-The resolution w-as then agreed to. ?P27,000 was then proposed for the Foundling Hospital, Dublin. lIlr-. 1IIUMIE doubted WhEther there was any en(I really betievo- lent or humaiie answered bil titlse grant.

After a f'ew weords fromi SirJonyx NEWvPORT and Mlr. HmIaaE, the gratit was agreed to. On tle vote of l0.!001. in aid of schools elablizheid bv voluntary subscription being proposed, Mr.H[J ME wished to know to ehm m the grantwas given? Air. GOULBURN sald it was given to those persons who either gave a suiII of money, or funmished land on which schools might ne erected. Mr. JOHN SMITH wished to know tvhether any distinction was itmasle between the Catholics and Protestants. Ir. (;GOUI,BURN saiti the hoti. rentlemanis question involved tivo questions-one of fact, and one oi principle. As to tlie question of principle, no resteiction existed as against either Catholic or Pro. testant receiving the grant, though in fact the greater number of ap- plications svere made from thc Protestants. Mr. SPRING RICE said there was an evil in the obligation which existed, that the bishop of the diocess should be a partv to the lease; and in one case the bishop refused to becomne a panty to it, unless the itidividual agreed that the patronage of the school (the nontinating the master) should be in the Protestant itiaister of the p arisli. Sir JOHN NEWPORT stated another instance of the same nature, but in wlhich the Government took it upon themselves to vary from the rile. Ailr. GOULXBURN said, that by the act of the 50th George III. the bishop wvas required to be a party to the lease, but no inconvenience resulted from it, as the trustees were permitted to be named by the person who gave the ground, although, in the form of the lea.,e wvhich was foi narded to thein,tlle names of the minister and churchwardens were inserted. M'r. HUAIE said he was quite satisfied that the grant was not applied indiscriminatelv, as it was intended, to both Catholics and Protestants, but went rmerely to increase the patronage of the Pro- testant church. lie hoped an account of the application of the last year's grant would be laid on the table, which would show in what manner it was distributed. Mv1r. GOULBURN gaid, that for 22,0001, Which the public had psid, tberebhd been 24,0001 famished by voluntary subscriptions. wIr. C. GRANT supported the vote, .*he wassatisjle4 thb Go. vernment had been rnxious to apply the grant as'It was intended,in- ditcriminately, withiout regard tO religious differences. The grant was then agreea to. On the motioa of tr. BENs ET the CnRmktAw eeported pro- gress, and (the house being resumed) obtained leave to mit again. Mr. GOULB URN moved for le-ve to bring in a bill for declaring the stealing of records to be larceny. After a few words from 3iMr. HUorE and MIr. BUTTERWORTH, leave was given to bring in the bill. The other orders of the day were then disposed of, and the house adourned at a QUARTER PAST WTVELVE O'CLOCK. HO TSE OF C03I3IONS, MONDAY, MIARCH 29.

This was an sction of trespass for forcibly compeHing the plaintiff and his family from a lodging, and for unlawfully taking his furnl. tare.-Plea, not gnilty. The plaintiff was stated to be a captain in the army who had served at the battle of WVaterloo; aiad the defetidants, father and son, were described to be carpenters, living at Greenwich. The plaintiff, who had become embarrassed in his aftairs, was obliged to go into the King's Bench prison. In the meantime his wife and her sister, Miss (Oharlotte State, and his three children and two servats, took lodgings in the honse of the elder defendant, at 11. Is. per week. Somne rent having become due, the defendant dis- trained upon the plnintiff's goods, which were released by Mr. State, the plaintiff's brother-in-law, who gave his note of hand for the amount dae. This trn.saction took place in May last year. In about a fortnightafterwards,the defendant entered the aintift I apartments, and completely gutted the roos ot al the furnituire At this time Airs. Foster was extremely ill, having been recendtl confined in child-birth, and was then in bed. It was alleged,that this proceeding was a mere pretext to force the -plaintiff's family to qtuit the house, under a colourable distress for rent, supposed to be due from the defendant for rent. It was proved by Aliss State; the plaintiff's' sister-in-law, and a femile servant, thlat when the defendants entered the apartment, the plaintiff's wife was ill in bed, and that one of the trespasmers had forced his way into lIrs Foster's bed-room, and retused to quit whilst she dressed herself, and actually remained whilst she put on her 8othes. The same witnesses proved that the defendants seized Xlr.. Foster's. Aliss State's, aund the children's wearing apparel, al. though the broker said they were at liberty to take such property away. In order to force the plaintiff's family to quit, it was proved thatafter the rooms had been cleared of the furniture to the bare walls, the defendants took the doors off the minges, and threw up the windows. In the evening of the same day, Mrs. Foster and her family left the houge, and took refuge in other lodgings. On the crosa-examination of the plaintiff'8 witnesses, it was ad- mitted that the plaintiff was a prisoner in the King's Bench Prison, and during the time his wife was in the lodgings, had sometimes visited his family with an3d without a day rule; that presioug to isis cmiag to Greenwaich, he had been Etving with his family at Rams- gate, in a gay style, with a carriage, and had left that place so much in debt, tha he eouldnot get a loaf of btead on credit; thet he had afterwards taken the benefit of the Insolvent Act, and had been remanded for six mouiths. It was proved on the part of the defendants, that the plaintiff's wife rwas in so much distress whilst she wasin the lodgitns tliat the defendant's wife- had provided her with baby-linen .uring hebr con6fnenient, and procured a meadiceil gentleman to ittend het dur- ing her illness * that notice to quitbhad 4een giveni; thal the. .Vlin- tiff's wife on the dLy in question was extremely abui'e, and had quitted the house in the evening in qncstion in- a state of inebriet Ifrom large quantities of !malt liquor which had been sEn for; that there was no property in the lodgings beloring to the plintif but a ffCViixeib'fr&,,',sa iQnte .cit2{r, ppard5 wvhich Mrs. FNkterx bhaddtiied ratight be taken care of for her. and which was`aecozrd ingl1tAincareofs and was readyto be delivered'whenrset-f6r 'iid thait tle removal of the futniture of the apartments 6asiit-*n2 i4uencE'of a,foonal&dr distress put fito the hoixsilfor rcnt due to'.thg def&nmYajit's landlo2d. ...

The gir] instead of L5iri,r her mistress's money7 tendered a gilt fariking, wkich so resembled a rej,-ereigi, that tbe de. fendant in the hurry of busines.s took it as such, and gpZYe the chaxge accordingly.

Mr. Sergeant ONSLOIr, who appeared for the defendants, called witnesses as to the latter part of the transaction, in which it ap- jcared that the defendant had behaved with great mildness, and civility.

Horrible Murder.
untIe Ula we imagine, wflen we penned the article for our last in reprobation of the protection afforded to an armed ruffian, and ,n avowed murderer in Galnmot, that a horrible acsassination would be perpetrated in that ill- ated barony, before the parazraph was printed off at press. The gentleman to whose melancholy fate we allude was a Roman Catholic, and his murder afibrds a singular illustration of the principles of NWrhitebeyismn. He dared to extend his possessions, in despite of that system, of numerous tireatenings, and of several attempts on his life, but the inimediate cause of his assassination is said to have been his having latelv taken some land formerly held, for more than a century, by a Protestant family, whose present representative, we are told, is an Orangeman ! Tric following is an extract of a letter from Galmoy . Galmoy, Mfarclh 18, 1824. " About seven o'clock on the evening of Tuesday last, as John AMarum, of lount Stopford, Esq., accompanied by his son Edmond (whose marriage you so lately announcedl), wvas returning, by the Wirke road, from a house he had lately built at Rathpatrick, to their dwelling at White's-wall, in this barony, he was, within half a mile of the latter place, way-laid and tfred on by a party of ruffians, who were concealed behind a hedgc, at a sand-pit. The son, being nearest the ditch, received most of the charge (which wasA'nipe-slhot) on the side of Iiis face and head. His horse immediately ran off, by which means, most probably. his life was saved. He, however, lost his scaton the satddle, andrl hung by the stirrup-leather until he canie to a cabin, when he extricated hiimself, and went into it for protection. On the shot being fired, the father's horse, it is supposedl, plunged and threvr him, or that he was knocked off by the blowof a stone, ol which the sanguinary villains leapt the ditch and most barbarouslv murdered him. He received five desperate bayonet wounds in the region of the heart, ome cut at the back of the neek, and his skull was literally broken to pieces. Two or three grains of the shot fronm the blunderbuss were also lodged in lbis shoulder. He had riot been abroad - "r sunset betore fbr several years, nor dluring the same pe- riod, unW that day, had he travelied without pistols. " On Icaving thenew house, Mlr. Marum directed his servant-boy to go to M'hite's-wall before hiRi, to announce tiat they were coming home. The boy having observeti some persons suspiciously assem- bled near the road, doubled his speed towvards honie and havitg ar- rived there, obtained his master's pistols, and returned with them hoping to meet hini; but, unfortunately, Mlr. Marum and his son had takeii another road, milthough iMlr. Illaruin had told his servant he would go home by that which the boy had traced in the hopes of meeting his master. " On tlhe night of the murder, the police searched several houses in the inimediate neighbourhood of the tatal spot, and in the cabiH of a man niamed Delaney they got a blunderbuss whiclh appeared to have been very reccntly discharged, and whiclh was broken acrgss the but-end, .ust at the guard. It answers the description given bv voung Mr. Alaruin who distinctly saw the piece levelled by which he was wounded. In another house they apprehendetd a mali naimsed Keffe, rith whom was found a threateninguotice, which lie attempt ed to swallow, but one of the police very opportunely gave him a punch in the bac with the bitt-end of his piece, which knocked the paper out of the fellow's mouth. He is at preseit in custody. " A few nights since, two other nost inflammatory tlreateniDg notices werc posted on the doors of two houses in this barony. " On Alondthv niglit, a house near this town, on the Spa-hiOl, wras maliciously burned to the ground, and the unfortunate innmates only escaped destruction through the clementcy of one of the incendiaries. "Unfortunately, we have no magistrates in this turbulent barony, and as for our police magistrate, we have very seldom the benefit of his presence. An inquest was held yesterday. It was adjourned to this dy, so tbat I amn not able to send you the result." The inquest WaS adjourned to yesterday at Jobnstown. Several rather sluspicious characters have been arrcsted by the police; but we have not learned that the atroIous deedof blood hasheertbronght bomse te any of them. Under the skilful attentions of Dr. Purcell, of this city,who reached White's-vwall at five o'clock on the merning of the 7th, Mr. E.1i1arum is, we are happy to say, in a fair way of recovery. Since writing the above, we have obtained a copy of the verdict. After a close investiFation of two days, the jury, which was highly res ectable. returneo_" 'Wilful Mlurder against persons unknown." e are deeply grieved to have to state, that another murder was perpetrated in this county, on the same day, and in an adjoining barony. No correspondent has furnished us with the particulars of this melancholy ease; but we learn, that Edward Long, a process- server, residing in Callan, went out on that day to distrain, urlder a decree, for tithes, obiained nine months aDo against a farmer of the name of Delaney, since deceased. He seized soiins cattle belonging to the deceased's son, but was set upon by a mob who rescued the cattle, compelled him to swallow his decrees, anA beat him so un- mercifully, that though lhe wasable to crawl into Kilmanagh, he ex- pired the&next (Thursday) morning. Captain Barry, of the Iverk police, sent into the countv gaol, yesterdav afiernoon, twvo prisoners, one of whom is committed a an accomplice in tbe atrocious butchery of the Sheas, and the other under circumstances wlhich require silence ?br the present.-Leinster Jouirnal.

'ine bent Assizes bor this eou:tty commenced here to-day. The LoaRD CHIEF JUSTICE presided on the Civil side, and the Ho}I Xlr. Justice BEST on the Crown side. WELLS V. SYGULDEN. This was an action on the 55th Geo. .Il, to recover penalties agains-t tne defendant, as an overseer, for supplying the pDoor Of the parish of Cranboume with butcher's meat, for his own profit, and while fn office. It appeared in evidence that the defendant had been in office two years, as overseer of Cranbourne and durlng that time had, in his busiaess of a butcher, supplied tihe workhouse witn meat for 'ts in- mates, and was paid the amount. It was suggested that on one oc- casion he had sent part of the carcass of a calf which had been pre. maturely lhilled in consequence of disease, but of 'this there was no distinct proof. For the defence, the only point taken wass that as there was an- ,.ssistant overseer in theparish,who received asalar for his trouble, and as the latter had ordered the meat of the detendant, the case was not within the statute. The Loirr) CsiRxEp B]lRo2f was of opinion that the case was clearly withinF the aat but said he would reserve the point, if the defendant's counsel had any confidence in it. The jury were directed to find for the plaintiff, for one penaliy of 1001.- TWISLETrOfl V. LOCKE-E. This was an action by theffon. Mr. Win.Thomas Twisleton son of Lord Say ant Sele to recover 101 money bhad ad roceiveA by' thedeferidantto the plaintiff's use. It appeared in evidence, that the defend nt, a gamekeeper, had sold the plaintiff' a pointer dog, at the price of 101., which was paid upon an understanding that the dog was a good pointer. Upon trial the animal was found deficieAt in manv requisites of a sporting dog; it woald not point, nor back his hrother dogs. At the enid of three weeksl he was retuned to the defendant, whio sent two other dogs to the plaintiff, in the hope that he might suit himself; but without success. The monev paid to the defendant was requested to be re- turned, and he promised to repav it, deduc inv hi' expenses, which the plaint ff agreed to allow; and, by Mr. Walker, at length agreed to take five guineas, if paid by a given time. The defendant was unable to perform his engagement at the appointed time, and this action was brought for the whole demand. The Jury, under thc learned Judge's directions, found their ver- dict for the platntiff-Damnagesi 51. .5s. _ }IAIDSTONE, MIARCH M6.
