' Mr, M. A. Tayi.ob in ri�in,j; lo move for tile ap. pniiitmeiit oTa Cooiinittee to coiiMder of ihe iniisan'i-e created by Steaoi-engiiie)', begged ihe indulgence of the l]-uii!<e for a very ffw innnaeitts, \ It would be ill lite recollection vf tlie Hoine, thji in the course of Ihe Sessiira before,flieJait,)ieliad(ir|,i^'itr'u'rteti-lion lo the iliconveiiience and aiinoyiince which the nielropolii! sustained fiom these-engines. lie had ihe'n siHled that the ill effects which followed from them, not only to the.personal enjoyment and health of the inhabitants, but to all the country ri)uud, in injuring the growth and quality of vegetables, tni^ht, by ihe adoption of proper means, be coii-sidcralily removed, and hdd desired that a Goin-j minee might be appointed to make inquiries on the snhject. The Committee had been granted him, and their Report was before the House. He believed that the idea of compelling the proprietors uf these machines to coiisnine.their own smoke, was, nmnng those who had bestowed attention on the subject, considered by no means impracticable, and he was satisRed tliatif the Hotise would permit the inquiry to proceed, and the investigation pro-[)erly pursued, it would be made evident.fhat the nuisance of these .erections, which made London uninhabitable-fA faugh J-Liverpool and Manchester uninhabitable, niid all these great places uninhiihilable-f Muck laughlerJ - (when he said uiiinhabitfible, he tneant it, for great numbers of those who conducted business in those cities were obliged to hire houses at a 'distance to place their families in), could be wholly removed, ,or at least greatly diminished. Thft whole of the eliulliiion of smoke, so ofiensive and prejudicial in its effects,-proceeded, from steam-engines, and if the House would grant him the Commnjee, he had nut a doubt that'his hopes in regaird fhem would he realized. He could refer to phicrt where the .design had actually - been eff-cted. It was (lone at the manufactory of Mr. Barnes, at Warwick, and he haf|)pened to have on his side the evidence of some gentlemen "in the House who hud seen it. In tliat establishment,'without any ctpettfe. being incurred, and with a saving in con-eiimplion of one-third of the quantity of fuel ordinarily used, all the rtneke fi-om the furnHCB~wii consumed wilhin the erection ; anil so little appearance was there of it in the surrounding part of the atmosphere, lhat he ventured to say, if any gentleman went into ihe concern he would find it difficult to determine where the furnace was. He had himself endeavoured to create a smoke from the furnace, without being able to succeed. Other gentlemen who had seen this furnace, could testify that the owner of it manifested no sort of suspicion that it would not answer the effects anticipated from it, for only ten yards from the furnace was a bleaching ground. He had visited the latter, to discover whether any obstruction arose to the operations there from the proximity of the other concern, but was told that none whatever was felt.-(Hear.)-Could any one say then, that he had acted wrong in bringing the subject under the consideration of the House There was also a distillery beyond Millbank, where the smoke was nearly, but not effeclually, got rid of. Ffe was sure there was no man in the kingdom who would not be glad that this iiuisaiice could be overcome, through the intervention and coin-niunds of the Legislature. He asked Ihe Right Honourable Member for Liverpool (Mr. Canning) opposite, what was the stale of that town from smoke -(A laugh.J-He asked, what was the stale of ' Birmingham Was it not kiiown lhat the ebullition of smoke overspread the entire atmosphere thereAt present small engines weie erecting in Bridge-street, Blackfriars, which would be productive of great annoyance. The Honourable Member then adverted to the unpleasant consequences experienced in the neighbourhood of Elliott's and the Cannon brewery. He believed tho Honourable Member for Noltingham (Mr. Denmaii) had been present when he visiied the manufactory at Warwick; to him he begged leave to appeal for a confirmation of what he had described. He trusted the House would permit him, after the inquiries should be completed, lo bring in a preparatory law towards the extinguishment of 10 peniicioos a nuisance. He was not in a hurry with such a law, but if he could eventually succeed in procuring its adoption, he was of opinion that he should deserve well of the public. The Hon. Member then moved, that a Select Committee be a^ipniiited to inquire how far it may be practicable to compel the owners of steam-engines to erect them in a manner less prejudicial to public health and public comfort, and added, that if any gentleman in the House were to take his station for three or four days near the chimney of one of these steam-ennines, he would be convinced of the expediency of the motion.-(A laugh.J Mr. Dgnman confirmed what bad beeusaid by the Hon. Mover concerning the aliBorption of the smoke by the engine at Warwick. Tliere was not the least appearance of smoke, llie merit of the invention belonged to (as we understood) a Mr. Parker, and was attended wilh the utmost possible success. He trusted that the public would shortly be made acquainted with the beneficial results of it, which^ he believed, would iu a short time supersede the iiit lation ou the subject. Sir C. MoRDAUNT spoke iu cim^rmation of the preceding statements. After a few woirds frAin an Hon.

Leave was given, and a Committee iippointed to prepare and bring in the Bill. NEW INSOLVENT DEBTOK.V BILL. Lord AliTHOHP rose, in pursuance of lii� notice, to move for leave to bring in a Bill lor the llelief of Insolvent Debtors. The Bill wUich he.ineMiit 10 propose was the same as that w'hicli he liad so l^feiy brought into the last Parliament. ]i was thertfu/e quite unnecessary for him to trespasa much upon the time of ihe House, as there must be a consitler-able number present who, whilst in the last Pailin-meoi, must have put themselves in possession of Ihe measure he then intended, and.whicii he now meant to inlroduct: u second lime. J}ut as some uew Members may wish lor an outline of his plan, he should beg leave briefly 10 state it. The l.v.� principal objects of his Bill were-f^rsl, to give creditors a moie easy power to detect concealment of properly on the part of fraudulent debtor.<; ar.d. his second was, to enable the Commissioners of thw Couri 10 ex-amine, out of doors, into all matters touching the conduct ujid property uf-the insolvent, 80 as to sat in fy tte creditors at large. These were the principal alterations he proposed introducingiu his new Bill. Mr. Lockhart-� Does ihe Noble Lord meaa to confine the scope of his Bill to the two objects he has mentioned ?" Lord Altuorp-" Certaii^ly not; but they are the principal points." Mr. LocKllART expressed the satisfaction he felt at the Noble Lord's answer, and al finding timt tint new Bill meant to embrace the subject in a coiii-preliensive manner. The two Bills alseatly in fnrct^ certainly required much attention aiid alteration; tliey were merely coh linedlo the analogous siluu-lion of the general practice respi ciiog debtors anil creditors, without at all making--proper disliiictions. There was one class of debtors that wae, for iii-staiioe, intangible by either of these Bills-lie meant those debtors who had incurred duioages fnuiided on actions at law, and who had dune great injury lo their neighbours ; be^ide^, in rasps of pennllies iiiflicled under particular Statutes, ihey were permitted their discharge just us ordinary-debtors.
