Public curiosity, indeed anxiety, to learn the particulars of extraordinary affair between these learned personages, was intense during the whole of yesterday. We have been favoured with the perusal of two letters from Limerick on the subject. They narrate Uie circumsUnces which took place in the crown court of that city, where ihnt learned ,..-,cu ,,�-./.. barrister, and amiable upright man, Mr. Serjeant I^froy, pre- \ j,, British Museum in 1�24. Mr. Be sided as judge, during the assises. The letters coincide in the I f ^pj.mi,ml,. charges of neglcctt main poinU, which we now lay before onr readers. A trial was j against the cstahlishnjctit, bnt w law of Milton, and upon whirli no doubts were entertained of its being the work of the immortal Milton. What he wished to aseertaUi from the Right Hon. Gentleman was, whether tbii manuscript would be given to the world, and whether his M�-jesty's Government would not undertake to print it. Mr. Secretary PEEL said that the Hon. Gentleman had been correctly informed of the fact of a manuscript having b^en found, through the diligent search and intelligence of Mr. LeiSjon, which had been for souic time lost. There was no doubt that this was in the hand-writing of the person he had mentioned, and the >roduction of the genius of Milton. The title of the work he be-lAved was " Dei LhUu," and the natnr^f it was to furnish proofs of the truth of the Christian religion. It had been carried to his Majesty, who, immediately upon its being shewn to him, said it was a pity it was not given to the public. (Hear, hear) It was now, in fact, in the hands of an eminent bdividual for Ihe purpose of inspection, and would eventually be giveu tp the public, under the auspices of his Majesty. (Hear, hear.) In answer to a question from Mr. Hume, Mr. Wynn stated, that the settlement of Bencoollen had been ceded by his Majesty to the Dutch, who were to give up in return to this conntry all the esUblishmenU of the Ncih^laods on the continent of India, togi'tlier with their claims to Singapore and the town of Malarcx. Tbel.eatyto that etfert is expected to be ratified about the month of May, when it will be laid before Parliament. The House having then resolved itself into a committee of supply, Mr. Bankes iiiects and cultivates them. On the usual grant being made for the Kildare-street society, a conversation of some interest arose, in the course of which Mr. L. Foster made a very gratifying sUtcment relative to the rapid progress of edacatiou in Irclnad, the liberal principles acted upon in educating the poor, and the important reforms already effected, which seem well calculated to secure to the whole population of Ireland the benefits of scriptural instroction. Mr. GOULBUR.N moved to bring in a bill, to make stealing records in Ireland felony. A case had lately occurred in Ireland, where many records had been stolen, and tbe Judges held that no law could punish the offender. Tlie records which were of value to tbe parties concerned were purloiued from a public office, and sold as old parchment. As these documents onght to be preserved, it was necessary to make tbe act of sU'al-iug them felony,-Leave givtn.-Adjourned. HOUSE OF LORDS-Tuesday. Lord GRANTHA3I preseali^a petition from Royslon, against the duty on coals carried coastways.- Laid on the ta&. Mr. Spearman, from the Treasury, presented certaia ac-counu relative to the public debc-Laid on the table. Eari MORLEY presented petitions from Plymouth and Bodmin praying for the abolition of Slavery, and one from Plymouth, in favour of the Plymouth Improvement Bill.-Laid on the table. The Marquis of LAXSDOWXE held a petitioa from a proportion of the silk manufacturers of Spitalfields. They prayed that tiie bouse would pause before it passed the bill for opening tbe silk trade, aa owing to tbe greater deamess of U-boor in th'ts country they were convinced that that trade could notfiouiish under the free competition proposed. They also prayed that if Parliament determined in ita wudom to pasa the said biU into a Uw, tiie period at which the trade was to be opened should be extended from tW0 yan aod a quarter to five years, in order to give them time to alter tSieir inacfaiaery. Tbe petition was then read aad Uid oo the table. The slayc trade inracy bill was read a third time and passed, its being committed baring been dispensed with in order to expedite iu completion that it might reach the other side of the Atiantic before the American Congren had separated. On tbe anoiivmuus writ  I maiudc ad"llut wMMhltrthe order'of th0 house for them to resume their littuig and hear, the evidence be might adduce in tu|t Societies. The hou. Member observed, that there was a vast distinction between the Freemasons and tlie other secret Societies of Ireland, which ought lo exempt tbeni from the operation of a measure of this nature. He wished to lake that opportunity to complain of that obnoxious and uiis-diievons part of the Orange Societies of Ireland called the Orange Processions-a practice which he apprehended would meet with the strongest reprobation of the house, and which be contended ought to eng.ige the attention of the Legislature It was a melancholy fact that 25 men were now on their trial in Ireland for murder, comuiitted during tumulls proceeding from these processions. Mr. BROWNLOW said, that he had a petitioa of a similar nature to present, but would deliver his sentiments upon the subject upon the petition then before the house. He thought it bis duty as an Orangeman, and connected with the most Orange town in Ireland, to declare that it was, in his opinion, the duty of bis Majesty's Government to put down the processions in questions. He agreed with Baron M'Lelland, that whilst they existed, no man's life was safe, no property was worthy a pin's purchase, and that all persons would quit the land where they wcrt; allowed to continue -Hear.-With regard to the Freemasons they declared that their society was a charitable one, and that tlic pledge for the soundness of their principles was, that his Majesty George the Fourth was their patron, and the Duke of Sussex an eminent Officer amongst thctn. In England they were allowed to meet, but if the same pmties crossed the water to Ireland, they would at once become an illegal assembly. The petitiiion was then read and ordered to be printed. Petitions were presented from Whitehaven against the county courts bill ; from Milbourn Court against slavery ; from Daintou and Pickering against negro slavery; from VVells against the ! duly of excise licenses ; from the mechanics of Wolverhampton against the combination laws ; ,from Berwick-npon-Tweed, praying for Ihe total repeal of the assessed taxes ; from Cumberland against negro sUvery ; from tbe ward of Farringdon Without, praying for a total repeal of the window tax ; from the licensed victuallers of Mile End against the duty on excise licenses ; from two paper-bangers in the dty of Dublin, complaining of a grievous UHMle of collecting the excise ux upon paper ; from the Mayor, Aldermen, &c. of Nottingham, praying that the bouse would not pass the alien hill, on account of the rrbitrary powers it conferred oa a secreUry of state ; from Deerbam, and several other places in Norfolk against slavery ; from Dowton, in Wiltshire, and HhI.&x ; from Calne, in favour of the county court hill; from certain clerks and apprentices to Uw agents in Scotland, complaining of the fee of 651. being enacted on their admission to practice as attorneys. These petitions were severally read, and ordered to lie on the Uble, aiul be jirtated. Lord AJipaiBALD HASil^TCS moved that the reports Of thettomnrisstoncrs of Inquiry on the ^coiii.sh courts should be referred to a coinuiittec of lite whole house, on the ground that the reconimeodatious of those coiumi.>sionrrs had not been duly complied with. The reply of the Lord .Uivoc^te was ino^t able and satisfactory, lie showed that most ot the recommendations had been satisfied by new ads of Pariinn. nt, or liy entorcing the [irovisions of old ones which it|);>liet! to the ditferciil snhjects. He also nnnoimced that he intended to submit to a committee a proposition, which Mr. .Miercronidy afterwards admilU'd woiild effect a most impurunt reform, by giving to the gentry of Scotland a share in the rt:.^4.
