KOUSB CI" I.OBBS. Monday, May 21.. Catholic Question The Earl of Maws-field stated that, in consequence of advice he had received from persons towards whom he justly felt a great respect, he had to move their lordships that the order for summoning the house, which stood for the 7th June, be discharged It was discharged accordingly; The Earl of HAREW.oon stated that, as the Catholic Question had thus for a time been got rid of, it was his anxious desire to put a question to the right rev. prelate whom he saw opposite, on a question of the highest importance. He was fully aware of the delicacy of the subject; but he thought it was not only of importance at the present moment, but that it would be of much greater importance hereafter, that the question be answered. He had seen published and promulgated certain opinions on the Catholic question, conveyed, at a congregation of bishops and clergy, to the clergy of the diocese of London, by two eminent divines. He wished to ask by what authority those eminent divines had made that declaration ? For the declaration see in the second page of our present paper, an article beginning, "At a pablic dinner of the Clergy of London." The Bishop of London said, if the noble earl wished to know whether the statement which had been reported to have been made by him at a meeting of the clergy, respecting the opinions enter-tainad in a quarter which he did not think he blight 10 mention in that house, was correct, he had no difficulty in saying that the statement which had appeared in the papers respecting1 that communication was correct. If it was the pleasure of the house that he should go still further in answering the question of the noble lord, and state the high authority upon which he had made that communication, he should obey the commands of the house. Earl Spehcer rose to order; and the Earl of Eldon also said, the fact that the right rev. prelate had made the declaration which had been reported had been established, and that circumstance was sufficient. (Hear, hear.) The Earl of Hasrowby said he was not blind to the importance of this question ; nor blind to the impropriety of the suggestions now for the first time made to a British oarliament, respecting the private opinions of the King. The Earl of Haiiewood begged, whatever impropriety or informality there might be in the present course of proceedings, that the whole burden might be thrown on bis shoulders. He would not have started the subject, for he was aware of its delicacy, had he not seen that a declaration upon a question which was connected with the best interests of this country was made the subject of public communication. (Hear.) He then thought himself justified in bringing forward the subject, on the ground rhat that declaration was no longer a private declaration, but had been made JJUUJ1C. Wednesday, May 23 Game Laws The Mawnis Salisbury, in moving that a bill for legalising the Sale of Game, under certain restrictions, be read a first time, said, that the bill did not profess to remedy the theoretical defects of the present system ; he thought it well worthy the consideration of their hardships whether some tiifling alterations might not be introduced, which, without interfering with the general principle of the game laws, would prevent the rapid increase of poaching. The best measure he thought would be to give an extensive power of selling game. He proposed to eive the nower of sellinn rami. to such persons as were now qualified to kill it, upon taking out a licence from the Commissioners of Taxes. There were many persons now who could employ qualified persons to kill game, although they were not authorised to kill it themselves. To these ne also proposed to' give' the power oi killing and selling game. He wished to encourage the owners of large tracts of land to raise game, by giving them the power of selling it. The proposed measure to be in operation for three years ; at the expiration of which, further measures might be adopted. Lords Carnarvon and Limerick supported the principle of the bill, which was read a first time. Friday, May 25 Com Bill. A division took place on the Corn Bill. It has by some been expected that the division on this bill, would havebeentnade an occasion for trying the strength of the party in opposition to the new Ministry ; but the question is one on which the opinions of the individual members must have been so long settled, and in which individual interests are, or are supposed to be, so deeply engaged, that the division is perhaps not very different from that which would have taken place if Lord Liverpool had been in the house to support the measure himselfViscount Godeuich prefaced his motion for its committal, by an elaborate detail of the principle and operation of the bill. The Earl of Malmesbury warmly opposed himself to it, and concluded by moving that it be committed on that day three months The Earl of Roseberry, the Duke of SosrERSET, Lord Bexley, the Marquis of Lansdown, and Earls Caernarvon and Daiinley, spoke in approbation of the measure ; and Earls Mansfield, Stanhope, & Sosslyn, and Lord Redesdale, strongly in condemnation. The Marquis of Salisbury and Lord Bllenborough felt much objection to the bill, though their opposition did not go to the extent of other Noble Lords On a division the numbers were, for the motion 120 ; against it 63 majority in favour of the bill 57. It was then committed pro forma, and ordered to be recommitted on Friday next. HOTJS33 OF COSafelOKS. Tuesday, May 22 Chancer; Bankrupt Jurisdiction,. Mr. Michael An&elo Taylor brought forward his motion for the separation of Bankruptcy matters from the other business of the Court of Chaucery. TheA'f TORNEY-GENERAL opposed the motion, on theground that the arrear was attributable to certain defects in the judicial chatacter of the late. Chancellor, and that if a little dispatch and a little energy were infused iiito the courts of equity, three men of ordinary vigour and resolution (the Chancellor, the Vice-Chancellor,- and the Master of the Rolls) would be sufficient to cope with all the business that came before them. He observed, with reference to the bill for the improvement of the Court of Chan cery, .that the propositions on which it was founded were such as the Lord Chancellor himself, on his. own authority, could for the most part adopt ; and that he was authorised on the part of the Lord Chancellor to state, that as far as his Lordship could exercise his authority he would do so, with a view to abridge the delays and heavy expenses at present attendant on the forms and practice Of that Court. (Hear, hear, bear.) In the course of the discussion, the subject of the Bankruptcy tribunals generally was entered into. It seemed to be very generally allowed, that nothing can possibly be 011 a worse footing than the whole bankruptcy system of the country. The motion of Mr. Taylor was lost, on a division, by 137 to 34 majority 103. Coventry Magistracy Sir J. Wrottesley lose to move for leave to bring in a bill to give concurrent jurisdiction to the Magistrates of Warwickshire in the city of Coventry! Tile Hon. Baronet proceeded to read some of the evidence produced on the Coventry Election Committee, to oliow tbc nature of the violence which had been used. Some laughter was .excited when the Hon. Baronet came to that part of the evidence which described that one voter had been tarred and feathered, and that another had had the entrails of a sheep stuffed' down his throat. The Hon. Baronet said that at present he should move in obedience to the instructions of the Committee, for leave to bring in a bill to give the Magistrates of Warwick a concurrent jurisdiction with the Magistrates of the. city and county of Coventry. On the motion being put, Mr. R. Heathcote rose, and after observing upon . the unpleasant situation in which he found himself, said that he would not follow the example of the Hon. Baronet in going through the evidence, but, taking it as it stood, he would contend that the evidence being equally credible on both sides, a case might be made on whichever side it was required. He believed that one-half of the witnesses would have been committed for prevarication if they had been examined in any Court of Justice ; and he was sure that no contested election could have been conducted with more tranquillity, or with less personal violence, than the late election at Coventry. With respect to the Mayor, who had been the. subject of so much animadversion, he would venture to say that a more respectable man in his station of life could not be found. He conceived it would not be just to inflict a stigma on 30,000 persons who were freeholders of Coven try, tor the improper conduct of two or three persons. Mr. declared unequivocally, and upon his honour, that he bad not received one farthing from the .Corporation of Coventry, either before the election or after the presentation of the petition which followed that election. He thought it would bean act of the greatest injustice to punish the Magistrates of Coventry without giving them the means to defend themselves. If they committed wrong, the laws of the country ought to be applied to. . Mr. Peel was favourable to the principles of the bill which the worthy Baro'riet intended to introduce. He would not, however, pledge himself to give the measure his future support, unless he was fully satisfied in his own mind that the facts stated tonight could be fully borne out by evidence. The final opinion of the House on the measure of the worthy Baronet must, in a great measure, depend on the decision of the committee appointed to try the Coventry election ; arid he advised the House to withhold any opinion oh the bill until the evidence taken before that committee were examined. (Hear.) Air. S. Bourne said that the case had already undergone a full investigation, and it would therefore be only occupying the GATE. PRICE SEVEN PENCE. attention of the House to no purpose to have the evident e examined. After a few words from Mr. Gcrney, leave was given to bring in the bill. Wednesday1, May 23 A number of petitions on the subject of the Test and Corporation A,-s were presented. The Solicitor Gekerai. moved for leave to bring in a bill for preventing arrests upon mesne process on debts under 20, the operation of the law to be extended to promissory notes, and other instruments, which were formerly exempt ; he thought tiiat necessary, because promissory notes were frequently obtained from needy debtors, and writs then issued upon them Lord Ar.THORP highly approved the measure, and wished that the bill could be extended to remove a more important evil that of recovering small debts Mr. PeeI. said he believed a bill to that effect was now ready to be brought before the House, if the Noble Lord wished it to be introduced. Lord Althorp obtained leave to bring in a bill for the better registration of F reeliolders' in England and Wales ; and Mr. G. Banees, to relieve Roman Catholics from a double Land Tax Assessment. Thursday, May 24 Forty members not having assembled at four o'clock, the Speaker adjourned the house. Friday, May 25 The business before the House of Commons Was not of much interest. After the reception of a number of petitions, Mr. Davenport renewed his motion on the subject . of the present state of the manufacturing districts for T-uesday. the 14th of Jane. Mr. Slaney gave notice of a motion for' the 12th relative to the employment of the able bodied poor. Lord Milton moved for returns of the assessed (axes for each of the last five years in Manchester and Salford, Birmingham, Leeds, and Sheffield The House afterwards went into a Committee of Supply, and a number of miscellaneous grants, principally for Ireland, were voted. Previous to the Speaker leaving the chair, Sir Thomas Lethjjridge renewed his attack upon the administration. The Hon. Baronet's remarks, however, failed to produce any reply from Mr. Canning, and the Speaker at length put an end to the conversation, and the regular proceedings were entered upon. Larceny Lavs rmd Criminal Justice 3il!s On the motion of Mr. Peel, the Larceny Laws' Consolidation Bill passed through a Committee, and the Report was brought up by Sir Alexander Grant, and ordered to be taken into consideration on Wednesday next. The same course was taken with the Malicious Injuries Bill. Mr. Peel postponed the further consideration of the Damages to the Hundreds Bill, to Wednesday next, and the third reading of the Larceny Laws Repeal Bill was fixed for Thursday week. The Criminal Justice Bill went through a Committee, and the Report was ordered to be received on Wednesday next; SOCIETY for Promoting CHRISTIAN KNOWLEDGE. On Tuesday evening, the friends of the above Society held their anniversary dinner, at Freemason's Hall, at which his Royal Highness the Duke of Clarence presided, supported by the Bishops of London, Chester, Bath and Wells, Ely, Mr. Justice Parke, and many others, the Lord Primate of Ireland, Lord Kenyou, Lord George Ber'esford, &c About 200 gentlemen snt down to an excellent dinner. The Bishops appeared in full canonicals. The cloth having been removed, the eustomary toasts were drank in silence, the usual course adopted on such occasions, of following the toasts by cheers, having been dispensed with. Neither were there any professional gentlemen present to enliven the scene with a song, either sacred or otherwise. On the health of his Royal High'nes3 the Duke of Clarence being drank, the royal chairman returned thanks, and eulogised the society they were now called upon to support. " Whether (said the Royal Duke) the declaration I am about to make be popular or unpopular, I think it right, in reference to lhe peculiar character of this meeting, to declare, at this time, that to the sound and rigid principles of the Church of England, I am unalterably attached and that it will be at all times, and under all circumstances, my first desire and duty to maintain those principles." In another part of his address, bis Royal Highness said, "In the official situation which his Majesty has been graciously pleased to place me, I shall deem it one of my first duties to see that the chaplains of his Majesty's ships are men of regular education and. orthodox principles, and that the books circulated for the use of the seamen are of that sober and suitable character, that may tend to tbeirreal improvement." His Royal Highness, in the course of his' addresses to the company, made several allusions to Ireland, as a country in which he felt the strongest interest, as well from other circustances, as from his having personally visited it ; and expressed the deepest anxiety for the welfare of the Protestant church in that part of the empire. The Bishop of London, on his health being drank, in a speech of considerable length, adverted to the ail-important objects of the society, which he said had done infinite good both at home and abroad. The Lord Primate of Ireland (Archbishop of Armagh) then rose to return thanks for a toast thank in his favour. Before he sat down, perhaps, the illustrious chairman, and others present, would consider that he ought to make some allusion to the circumstances which were now daily occurring in Ireland ; he alluded to the rapid progress of the reformation. It was his opinion that the. established churches of England and Ireland must stand or fall together (hear, hear !) An ardent wish for general inquiry and kfowledge was daily gaining ground in Ireland, and all the influence which might be used against it would be of no avail. He was persuaded that the abandonment of the Komish faith would be the result of a general wish on the part of the people of Ireland to inquire into and gain knowledge, und that conviction and truth would prevail. He did not place so much reliance on the reformation being brought about by the abandonment of the Roman Catholic religion by some of its followers, but he placed his confidence for the reformation of Ireland on the good seed that had beer, sown there, by this and other societies, which wouki shortly spring up and bear fruit abundantly (hear, hear.) Success to the society for the Propagation of the Gospel having been drank, The Chaplain observed, that the society had existed for 130 years, and had steadily pursued the objects it originally contemplated. In 1811 the number of subscribers was 4000; in 1827 they were 16,000. The income in the former year amounted to 24,000?. ; last year 60,5152?. 10s. had come into the Treasurer's hands. During the same period 1, 461, 825 Bibles, Testaments, Common Prayer Books, mid other religious books, had been distributed. The operations of the society had extended through the whole of the British dominions. The late Duke of York, truly called the soldier's friend, had so far exerted himself in the cause of religion, that every soldier carried in his knapsack the sacred volume (hear.) The Chairman drank success to the Clergy Orphan Corporation. Lord Kenyon returned thanks. His Lordship adverted to the claims which the object of that charity had on public support ; for to the exertions of the clergy, as a body, was owing that the present illustrious family sat on the throne of these realms (great cheer). After several other toasts were given, the company separated. Chiltem. Hundreds The acceptance of this office, or stewardship, vacates a seat in Parliament, but without any emolument or profit. Chiltem is a ridge of chalky hills crossing the county .of Bucks, a little south of the centre, reaching from 'i'ring in Hertfordshire to Henly in Oxford. This district belongs to the crown, and from time immemorial has given title to the nominal office of stewards of the Chiltern hundreds. Of this office, as well as the manor of East Hundred, in Berks, it is remarkable, that although frequently conferred upon Members of Parliament, it is not productive either of honour or emolument ; being granted at the requestxif any member of that house, merely to enable him to vacate his seat by the acceptance of a nominal office nnderthe crown ; and on this account it has frequently been granted to three or four members a week. County Election Path: The Select Committee appointed to take into consideration the mode of taking the poll at County Elections, have just given in their Report. They state that they are of opinion that the principal expense at contested elections for counties arises from the conveyance of voters from their places of residence to the county town, and their maintenance while there, to diminish, this expense. The best constitutional means appear to be, that the poll should be taken in different places in the county, so that no freeholder should be compelled to travel more than ten or twelve miles from his freehold to the place where his vote would be taken. In order to remove all doubts as to the legality of votes at the time of polling, they recommend the establishment of an authentic register of all persons who have a right to vote for any county. The plan which the Committee propose for the eslablishment of this Register is, that twice in every year the collectors of taxes in each parish shall require the occupiers of land to return the names of their landlords, being freeholders ; and that a list shall be formed from these returns, to which the names of any persons claiming to be freeholders shall be added at a vestry specially held for this purpose. That when the list shall have been so corrected, it shall be transmitted to the Clerk of the Peace, and by him entered in the Register of the Freeholders of the County, and that every possible degree of publicity should be givenJo this Register.
