S. R. LUSHINGTON. IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. house OF lords, Thorsdat, Mat 4. The following Peers took thet>Btbs:-The Earl of Egre-moot, Lords Erskine, Crewe, Montagu. PRIVATE BUSINESS. On the motion of the Earl of SakrttsVOKT, tbe orders of the House were suspended in respect of- private Bills commenced, or petitions heard, or evidence received thereon in the last Parliament, and the same placed on such fooling as if no dissolution bad taken place. cuiCrency. Lord King said, that he ro�e to call their Lordships' attentioa to the market price of silver compared with the mint price. He aiideretood that tbe price of thut metal at the mint .was higher than that in the inarket, the effect of which was to raise the currency of the country iabove its. proper value. After some further remarks, th6 Noble Lord moved that there be laid before the House an acc(>uut of the market priue of 8taiidai;d silver, and of its price at the mint. The Marquis of Lansdown, adverting to a no-tice of a motion for tQ-JDorrowiti^bt, given by Lord Holland, respecting a petition presented by the last Noble Lord ffom a clerjgj'inati, stated that bis Noble Friend ivas ed ipucl) indisposed as to be unable tu attend to-morrow uigiit, and that it wolild therefore be a matter of cotixenience if the notice were postponed to some more distant ilay? After a few words from the Bishop of Exbteb, which were inaudible, the Rlaiquis of Lansdown proposed that ilie order should be discharged, uod a new one fixed for to-morrow se^nuight. CITIL LIST. The Marquis of LaWsdown said, that in reference to that part of his Majesty's Speech from the throne which related to the settlement ol_ the Civil List, he was desirous to. know whether it was the intention of bis Majesty's Miuisters to move for the appointment of a Select Cotnmittee to investigate the whole of the subject, or iti lay^any further information oil that head before the House. ' The Earl of LiVBBPdoi.: replied, that it was not intended to move for the -appointinent of any Cuin-inittee, and besought that the lleftort (>f tji^ Cora-inlt^e of I8i6 was -.kbuudaiuly sufficient to afford alt the information that could b� desired. ' The Marquis of Lansdowk said^^'thnt not only itvthe year 1816, but on all licckiivofis when this sirbjfict had been ,^efpre .iKe HpiiM, it bad jiiiilormly  ifait^'''i>y Mujt;�ly's   Miiiisten ll�t wbeu a. i�ew, leign ,,�hu^l^j,c,�mflJe|ici!; tKe period would have arrived for sifting the whole system of the Civil List expenditure to the bottom. Tbe Minister of 1816, he believed, had held ont that hope ; Mr. Perceval certainly had ;xand wer^ it not for that assurance, a much fuller investigation would at those periods have taken pkce.IJe felt a most entire confidence in his Majesty's ovn gracious intentions; bat that circumstance did not relieve the two Houses of Parliament from the solemn duty incumbent on them in this respect, and.he now wished to impress on the House .the necessity of reprinting the papers and accounts, which had resulted from the inquiry of 1816. together with any new informaiiou that might have since transpired.   Indepeiidently of economy, a consideration whicH undoubtet^ly, at the present times, carried the utmost posxible weight* another question called for the alteiitioo of Parlv'sient- he meant the means of-stfBplifying the accQuota. of the Civil LtsI, so as to render its various chtrges open to the lowest capacity, and to enable the poorest Bobject in the realm to see how mutitb of the sums granted under that head went to tjie exclusive maintenance of the Royal digiiity, and was &|:tna^y csnsnmed in the siippdrt of the'King, and the other branches of the Rdyal Family.^ ,At present this was involved 1ii obscurity, wiihout ^ vast deal of examination and computation.   It did not s^em to hini to be by far the simplest and miost eligible coarse, to throw on the Consolidiited Fund every charge growing out of the other parts of ihe Civil Government, or that could be iroiisidered of a public nature.   Whatever was necessary to the regular, permanent support of the King and liis House^^ hold should be seUled on it permanently; but all expenses of a contingent nature should be annually brought before Parliament, an-l  allowances made in proportion to their extent.   He was satisfied that from the way iu which the accounts of the Civil List were' now confounded together, v^ry erroneous iinpressions. had frequently gone out to the public of the expenditure of the Royal Faintly.   He saw uo advantage to the public from the salaries to the Judges and the foreign Ambassadors being mixed up with the g.rants held proper for the support of the Crown, Vnuicb a'mau-iier as to make it very difficult for the public to pei/ceive what was the^btrge on the ope. ai:cou�t and what on the 'othe^.   It appeared to htin that the mode to which' lie had alluded would be the iqost siinj>re, ijiteltigible, aiid therefore useful mode of makiii^ ii/i t'he' biiblic iii:couitl*.; But iii layiiig thui diui^,' hii ieierved himself fpr any re* marks he migbt think fit to oifer when the Bills came from the other House. The Noble Lord then moved- " That the Reports of tbe CaBmittee of 1810 shouh)' be reprinted, aud that tber� e an estimate uf the future probable aiioual amount of the Civil List." The Earl of LiTBBPOOL said, that there was no instance wliere the settlement o( the Civil List had been preceded by the appotnttneut of a Comniii-tee. His Majesty's MitMsters stood on this tantnge ground above any of their prpdeaessora in a similar situation, that only two ye'ars ago, wftiie his present Majesty was exercising the functions of tlie head of the State, the Civil List in all its ramiSca-tions had undergone the most tliorp^gh investigation and discussion, and was rendereil by means of the Report of tbe Committee of the other House intelligible to the meanest capacity to an exlrnt it never had been before. He thought the Noble Lord's object of simplifying these accouiils bad been attained iti 1816 io a* ample a degree us cuuld be useful t4 tlie |)�hlic. It seengied lo him by no ineaiis wise 'ft> Separate the $;}fa;gdi necwaary. for tlie immediate .use and support'of the Crown from those called for by the other branches of the Civil Government.. He had no objection, however, to reprinting the papers of 19l6. Lord Kino argued, that the investigation of I8l6 di.l not preclude Parliament from now coni-i-deriug the whole subject anew. Inquiry was pt-ca-liarly necessary at the present period of unparalleled distress. The year 18l6 was one of most lavish ex- , penditnre, therefore it was a complete fallacy to . set up that us the standard which should regulate the Legislature in folnre. He slwuld heartily give bis vote for the Committee. The motion was then put and agreed lo. The Earl of DaKNLGY rose for the purpose of giving notice that he would move for a copy of the patent of the appoiaiment of the King's stationer in Ireland, and for certain revenue accounts from that pan of ihe united empire, but afterwards po�t-poned hi� intention to a future night. The House then adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS, Thubsdat, Mat 4. NEW MEMBERS. Several new Members took the oaths and their seals; among them were Lord Folkstone, Sir Thomas Muslin, Mr. Brownlow, Mr. Coke, Sir William de Crispegoy, and Mr. Maberly, jun. MISUNDERSTANDING RESPECTING PRIVATE BILLS. The Speaker intimated that a misunderstanding respecting a Resolution of tbe House bad prevailed among agents for private petitions. They thought that tbe busineaa intercepted b; Ihe dissolution of Ihe late Parliament, would be re-lakeu up by the House in the same stale in which it was left, whereas the import of the resolution was, that all the preliminary steps most be repeated, Ibougb the evidence of wilaesses was suBered to remain in itat* quo, and though Ihe parlies were to be aavedf a fresh expense, sfvll. tbe preli-minaryTorms must be-gone'tfarVHigb'aaeic Perhaps owing ^o Ibis misunderstanding, aad as Ihe time for receiving pri-vatepetitioDS waQldejc(iireto-monro*,tbcBoaBe would deem itright to enlarge the jperiod for petition*for tbe space ef ooe week. The time for receiving petitions for privalsBills was accordingly enlarged until Friday tbe 12th instant. DUBUN GAS PETITION. Mr. Robert Sbaw presented a Petition from tbe iahabi-tanls of Dublin, for lighting that city with Gas.-Referred t� a Committee. SCOTCH WHISKEY. On the motion of Mr. FinlaT, Accounts were ordered, shewing the quantity, of Whiskey Distilled iu Scotland fur Home and Foreign Consamptioo, distinguishing the Lowland and Highland, from tbe years 1798 lo 1818, and tbe quantity distilled from sugar and grain. LONDON BRIDGE. Mr. Whitbread presented a Petition from the Watermen on the north side of the River Thames, against the present state of London-bridge.   They considered it full of danger. The Petition was brought up and read. Sir W. CuBTis said, that though he did not think the bridge was iii as.dangerous a state as it was by some represented, yet he felt perfectly convinced of the necessity of a proper snryey of its stale, for the purpose of allaying any alarin which may prevail, and taking such steps as tbe nece^sFty of the case inay require. It was the intention uf the City of London to make every possible inquiry inti> tbe state of the bridge. Mr. Fbanklano Lewis said, that tbe inquiry had become absolutely necessary lo satisfy the public. The most s.erious damage was likely to be done to the navigation of the river, if snnietliii:g was not immediately dobe to repair lhat structure, or in such other way as may be deemed advis�bl . Sir W. CuKTis expressed his intention of having the fullest inquiry made. Such was the wish of tbe Corporation of London. Mr. Alderman Wo , the City would apply a larger power to the'u' waiei-wheels at tbe bridge, and render unitecessary thut quantity of water which they required iua particular spot for the water-works. An enlargemeui uf the arches where the current was patiiculur>y felt, might also prove very beneficial. Mr. Alderman Wood explained lhat tlie Corpo-ration had little or no interest iu the wuter-watk-!. Thev received but a veiy small rent from the proprietors, which tliey .would gladly relinquiah to facilitate any proper arrangement. The Petition was laid on the table. DRDRV-LANE THEATRE. Mr. Calcbaj^T brought iu the Bill for enlirg. ing the powers of the two former Acu fur rebuilding Dfury-lane theatre, it was read the first time. TAX ON FOREIGN WOOL. Mr. thohas'WiiispN presented a Petition fri'm tlie Merchants, Manufacturers, and Traders of the City of Loudoa concerned iu the woolleu Uait,
