THEJTRIC.4LS. Dnunv-LANE.-On Wednesday the melodrame of Lodoiskn was revived with much novehy^and additional splendour. The prciloioinant atlraction in tbe piece was tlie introchiction of the grand Stud of Horses, who appeared upon this occasion in the gaudy trappings of Tartar Cavalry. Mr. Waliack took the pari of the Tartar Chief, AVra Khan, which he sustained throughout with great spirit nod effect. Tbe acting whs good ; and the drollery of Mr. ilarley never more conspicuous than in the part of Variet, the Valet to Count Floreiki. Of the new scenery, the opening^scene of a forjtified castle, at son set, on the borders of the forest ofJOstropol, rtmy be treated as a remarkably success-tnl etfoft. Here the Tartar boide first show tbcmselres in a rapid and irregiUtir aasemblage rpund .thm Cltitf; and, indeed, in the cobrse of^ tbe performance these congr^aiions of armed troops, in all the importance of horse and foot, and every co.-ttly variety of dress, present a feature of considerable interest and attraction. The grand display Is reserved for the concluding scene. In this, wiiiist a dubious warfare is kept up between the Tartar tribe apd tlie Polish adherents of ^flr�)� Aoi>i;m*t, within the Castle, tbe outer fortifications are discovered to be on fire The wafls and battlements crumble beneath its destructive power, and in the crash of falling towers, and the glare of a general conflagration, an encounter of the whole forces on either side takes place, which it is impossible for tbe utmost flights of language adequately to describe.

Little or nothing can be said in commendation of the literary merits ot the produuAmn- We must admit that there are some few scenes which are langhable, biit silstained %y pointed dialojgrue and iugeulous coo-triruire.

Mr. DAVENPORT presented a petition from the manufacturers of tobacco and snuff, iu Chester, praying for a repeal of tbe high dnties which affected tiicni. Several petitions were presented from me:t;hants, ship-owners, &c. of I'lymoutb, Pcnaance,the hundred of Westertou iu Sussex, and Penryn, the duties on Coal carried coastwise. Mr. JOH.N WILLIAMS amended his notice of a former nigh:, for returns from the cause papfcr of tbe Master of the Rolls, from the year 181? to the vcar 1823. Sir EDWARD KNATCHBLLL presented a petition from the victuallers of Raimgate, complamiug gf the high rate of excise duties. On the motion of Sir JOHN NEWPORT, an address to the King was agreed to, for acconuls of the several diocesan s�-liools in Ireland, specifying tbe number educated in each, tbe expense, respective funds from which it was defrayed, aud also similar accounts of the parish schools under the act of Henry VJ U. The accounts were onlered to be made up for the last ten years. A n�'w writ was ordered for the Borough of New Ross, in tbe room of Sir John Mackenzie. The House resolved itself into a Committee of Supply. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER moved that a supply he granted to h'ls Majesty. Tbe resolution was agreed to, the flouse resumed, and the report was ordered to be resumed to-morrow. The House went into a Committee on the Irish Law Court Act. Mr. GOULBURN said, that his object was to bring in a bill to regulate certain provisions of the lonner act, npon which a difference of opinion had arisen between one of tbe cuurts, and two others. It merely related to the mode of paying extra clerks when their services were called for in the oflSces of the ccftrts. After a few words from Sir J. NEWPORT and Mr. GOULBURN, respecting the mode in which the Irish law records 'Were kept, leave was given. A resolntion was agreed to for .bringing in the bill lo amend the Irish law court. The House resume<l, and the report was ordered to be received to^iorrow. Sir J. WROrrESLEY moved for an account irf ihe valne of the several coins, or pieces of silver and copper money in circulation. He then gave notice, that on N^ndtty next he would move an bumble address to the King, praying- ^hat he would be gmciouRly pleased to dirvet an inquiry to be ittade how far tile coin.<ge of threkingdom might be adapted to a decimal cailctJlation. On the motion of Mr. M ABERLY, a series of accomils were ordered, of the amount of annuities transferred by the trustees under the Naval and Military Pension Act of last se.wion, to the Bank of England, distinguishing the respective value of such tninsfers, estimated at the current stock price of the day, and the paynieuts iiia<!e for them ; also showing the respective prices of the same in March, 1823, and Fel)ruary, 182t. lie s.tid, th'il he intended these accounts to illustrate his opinion, given at the lime, of the improvident bar^rain made by the Government for the public. \ series of accounts were likewise moved for, to show the quantity of hemp, flax, and yarn imported into Great Britain from foreign countries and Ireland, distinguishing the ports to and from, and the price per ton, for the last ten years. Similar accounts ot the exports and imports of linen from January 1823 to 1824, distingnishing the exports from Ireiiwid and Scotland, the parts sent to, and the duty paid ; ahio the quantity of Irish corn imported into Great Britain, distinguishing the several kinds of i,rain.-.'Vdjourncd. <<Aeqtter,v resent to the arguments Which tbe Hon.

There ought, therefore,, to be a more distinct and definitive line drawn betweeu exposure, tiie effect of accident, and exposure, the result of intention. At present tnere was do discretion. Ou conviction, the magistrate must convict fora mouth. His object was t� inv^'st the magistrate with a discretionary power, wluch would enable him to commit fora shorter period. (Hear, |iear.J Such an alteratiou might be effected without trenching on the principle. (Hear, liear.) He agreed iu tlie observatiou of the Hon.

He ucvcr knew of any arrangement, with respect lo the appointment of stipendiary MagistraU-s, except tliat of .sch'cliug those persons who were tlie best recommended, and requiring Uiat the parlies should have practised at the bar. The HOUSE OF LORDS, Tuesday. The Earl of SAINT GERMAINS took the oaths aud his seat. His lordstiip'was introduced by the Earl of Harrowby anil Lord Somers, and was attended bj'Sir George Naylor, Garter King of .\rms, in his full robes. This ceremoay was adopted in consequence of the present succeeding to the title by a patent creation. His lordship was only collaterally related to the late earl, and the title was to descend on his children, but the present earl has been called to the dignity by the King's patent. The House was occupied till half-past five o'clock iu ballotting for peers to attend to the bearing of appeals, and noble lorda were appointed for this purpose up lo July 20lh. STATE OF IRELAND. Lord DARXLEV said that he took that opporlunit}' of stating to their lordships what he iutended to sUte, but bad omitted, on the first day of the session, tliat be intended to redeem the pletlge he had given last year, to bring the state of Ireland fully liefore tlifir lordships. He meant, therefore, to' more that ilieir lordships be summoned for VVtdnesday, March 2, to lake tlie state of Ireland into cofjuderation. He hop n the conduct of them lo a certain amount j and the consequence was, that indi-some of those who held this situation, when acting in their Ma- vidiials, who, from their rank, fortune, and intelligence, were particularly qualified to fill such dnties, were excluded, or rather excused, from perfoi ming them, because tliey did not possess the requisite quantity of freehold property. Mr. LESTER seconded the motion. Mr. LOCKH.\RT did not mean to oppose the motion, but he ihoaj^ht they should use great cau'.ion in introducing al-t'ralions in the jury system which had worked so well. He CO lid by no means concur in the expression of the Honourable-Mover, that tlie right and obligation of uctlnir on juries had been gisierial capacity. He had intro)|uced tJie names of Mr. Dyer and of Mr. Swabey. He thoii^tht it would have been as well, when the Hon. Gentleman meutioned to him (Mr. PeelJ that Ur. would present this petition, if he had also stated, " 1 mean to in-troJiiie thostf cases, and I now give you the information, that ' you m:\y have an opportunity of arranging what you may have to say on the subject." But as these cases were not prjiicrly before the House, he thought it would be as unwise as it unnecessary to notice them further ; and therefore he would nvuid that topic. The Hon. Gentleman observed, that Mr. Dyer had ' taken moderate bail from one iudividuuil, whilst lie had refu.sed to receive bail from another. Now be must contend that in the . country from being overwhelmed arbitrary power, and case where bail was refused, the Magistrate had no discretjon lo ^ j,ad made this almost tbe only nation in Europe which enjoyel A system that worked so well imposed on the freeho'ders alone on account of the " prejudices" of our ancestors.

There Was also a document which had been laid on the table of the other liouse that he should move for, relative to the produce of the first Ihiits m Ireland. Ther^ were several other papers' also for which he should move.

The House then adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. The CHAISJCELLOR of the KXCBKQUER reported at ,th^ Bar the King's Answer to the Address of the House on the jfirst.d^ of the Session.

(Hear.) .As to the committti? by the Magistrates, the prima facie statements of the difference wns very important, and di-served inquiry. But, on account of its importauee, the Hon. Genlleman oni^iit to have given notice, that he mciint to bring it forward. He had not stated whetu'^r any of the committals were in execution, a point which was of great im;u)rlanre. He merely said, so many were committed, and so many convicted. But, supposing that a part of those persons were committed in execution, it was impossible that there could he any sub.seqiient conviction. Tliis was important to be ci^isidercd, and the Hon. Gentleman on^ht to have asrertained the fact. ,As, however, the Hon. (Jontleman would in the course of a few days move for accounts on the subject, it would be belter that the whole question should be then debated. When the Hou. Gentle-man brought forward a distinct motion on the snhject, be shotihl be ready to meet it, and to give to the House every information wh^ could, with propriety, be demandwl; for he could assure thPllonse, that Governmeut had no motive whatsoever for mystery or concealment. (Hear.) The Petition of (as we understood) William Lotcho then brought up and read. Mr. HUME, in rising to move that the petition be laid on the table and printed, begged leave to say llmt he had not attached the slightest blame to the Home Office. t�n ihe cdhtrary, be observed that he believed every thing was properly conducted. The gallery was cleared for a division on printing the petition, but the Houae did not divide, and the motion was agreed to. IRELAND.-REVENUE.-CHUKCH. Lord ALTHORP said, at a future t'lime it was his intention to call attention to tbe state of Ireland generally, and at pre-�ent, withavSewto prepare the House for the codsidei^rioft of the snbject, he wished to obtain information as to three important points:-i. TTie Revenue. 2. The Church, as respected the residence of the Clergy, and their Revenues. 3 The execution of the laws respecting the Roman Catholics, in regard to their admission to those offices which they were at present not disqu^i-hed by law from filling. The Noble Lord then moved for " An account of tbe gross and net revenue of the-customs and excise in Ireland, for the two years ended, Jan. 5. 1824.-Ordered. " An account of tbe sums of money levied for the last two years nmlergrandjury presentments ill Ireland, distinguishing tbe baronies, and specifying the beads of account and the separate charges to which they were applicable."-Onlered. : Tbe Noble Lord then moved that there be laid before the House a list of the parishes of Ireland, with their respective in-cumbents, diatii^uiahing the cases where the ineumbents^re or are not resklent; aod for a list of Roman Cstbolics appoi 'ted assiatant-batristers asce the year 1792, wbicfa^ ^fter somd conversation between Mr, Hnme, Mr. V.

After a few words from Mr. PrrzdBRALb, ttftf^'ttiotjbh #as withdrawn.  - ' - lrf>rd;NUGENT said it was bis abtontiott th nibv4;' on Tnesdaythe 17th, that there be hutt Offlfab^bl^fio^ies bf the lUnstmctioas given by Governuieist to Sir WiVJ^qiifftr and also of the correspondence between Sir'M^ A'CbtM^'atlU'^tb^ Spaiiisb Government.

But he would advise that Hon. Gentleman to consiih-r whctlier it would he safe or expedient to take any particular amount of properly for the measure of qualification, ami if tuat mode of fixing a standard was not likely to introduce too lar^re a class. The Hon. Gentleman proposed that the possession of 1001. of personal property should not only he a sufficient qualification, hut that the owner should be entitled, or, if he pleased, compelled, to serve on the juries. But would it not be aVcry deltcato point to leave the subordinate officers of any parish or borough to ascertain whether or not each man claiming or being cnn-pelled to serve was worth 1001. Surely it would be belter to ado] t some known test by which qualifications were now ascertained-either the book of assessments to ttie parochial ami county rates, or those of Parliamentary taxation. One rated at 1001. or 2001. house rent, should be eligible. Leave given to bring in the bill. Mr. WESTERN moved for returns of the convictions and sentences passed in the Home Circuit during the last year, distingtiiahiog those who had been convicted for the second time, the nature of their offences, and the punishments to which they had been sentenced .�^-Ordered. Mr. MARTIN (of Galway) rose, according to notice, to move foi* leave to bring in a bill to extend to other aiiimals the privilege aod protection which the House, under a bill which he had brought in, bad afforded to cattle. To this bill lie did not apprehend jnucfa Objection, as it merely would extend the pi in-ciple of the bill for preventing cruelty to cattle, to dogs, and cats, and other .animals.-(A Member asked Mr. Martin whether he included rats 7) No, he did not mean to include rats.- (.\ laugh.J-Leave given. Mr MARTIN said the second bill which he should move for leave to bring in, would require little detail. He moved for leave to bring in a bill for the abolition of bear-baiting and other cruel spof ts. There was some hesitation in putting the question, as Mr. Martin bad not provided a seconder. Mr. Martin expressed a hope that some Gentleman would second it. Some one having seconded it, and the question heio^put, Mr. Secretary PEEL said, he was as, ready as any one to do justice to the motives of his Hon. Friend; but the bill which it was the purpose of tbe present motion to introduce, was an important, that he was surprised his Honourable "Friend did abt think proper to enter ipto ttie details. Tbe Hon. GebtlemaA prbpo^d to prohibit <;ertiiin cruel sports. Now, if .the jfjop,.Gentleman laid down the general principle, that no pain "should b^ inflicted on animals, except such as was necessary in pottiiig tiiem to death for tbe support of inan, bis legislation woi^d he consis^nt; bpt be was certainly not fair in selecting partial inStaaces to le^Mate on, in which tbe Meml^n� of the ("House, <he /isrfles legislating, did not happen to be interested. (Hear, hVar.)' The Housg had last Sessmn refused to amend the Game Laws, on tbe^prteJ girounds that, by affording a mode of amusement to coUhtrygentlemen, they afforded them a motive to residencp on their estates.' The Advantages of this residence he did tidt diean to aiidervalde; bot whiTe they thus directly en-ctiiiraged tie wounding'of animals in shifting and hunting, they could not with aqy decency pass a partial law djgainst the same sort of cruelty when perpetraCtd by a lower class of people, nor cOuld they make it penal to encourage tbe antipathies of Iwu ai^inals in bear-baiting, when they encouraged precisely the antipathies )n fox hdnting.
