Mr. Baring rose to present u Petition from lliat mo�t extensive and respectable body,. |he Merchants of the XZ'tiy of London ; a .Petition which, whether it is considered for the terms in which it is couched, for the great respectability of the peri>ons from whiiin it emunstes, o. for the great Ktake they hold in the country, he wonldv venture to say involved a more important subject than bad ever before come before that Hoase in the shape of a Petition. The general interest excited by the great questidnof the pre�ent prevailing distresses in the comiMerciul world, was a proof that the cou'dtry felt itself at-present in a stale of great 'uneasiness, and that itseriuosly called for theiinmediate consideration of Parliament, with the view of inquiring whether or no human wisdom could devise aiiy remedy for tliK present stale of thin^. If, on inquiry, the evil siiould appear to be irremediable, then let the country know it; if the contrary should appear, then let the wisdom of this House see how far a remedy was apidiruiile, and in what manner ibe attempt was to be made in the present state of the country. In hi*owti opinion, the case was a mixed oiie; for much of the evil he feared there conld lie found no particular remedy, but for other branches of the subject, he thought some remedy might . be applied, - and a good deal done to mitigate the *^xisting state of things. The Petitioners ' came before Parliament upon the broadest grounds; tbey cume for protection against lio particular in. terest; they claimed neitber reservation'nor exemption, nor particular privileges - On llie contrary, they,, us commercial men who underitood their real interests, felt that the distress, when general, was not to be alleviated by pactial or exclUiive means- they felt, that when'agriculture dwindled, liianufac-tiMT^ cottid.juii tJ|ici��:|,^r^eoitid<!aaiaiescefle�trish; --f Uiar.J-They knew that for any of these braucheK of the public wealth to suffer, other* must decline, and that the whole welfare of the community' was essential to- the well being of nuy of the. particular interests that composed it. In considering this im.portaiit subject, he was aware of the niany, and an some instrtnces insuperable difficulties with whii^ he hadto con-^lend. When the general state of distress was felt at the close of the late war, St was said to have arisen from a Iransition from 4 slate of war to a state af peace ; that it wai temporary in it >ht he could Solve-tome of the remedies Ihat might lie propoumled to meet part reiit weatih, -b<it from its wide and inUlttfarions qualities it was also productive uf greiit carelessness i.i, niiuutiv.

But be had reason to coinplnin nf the past conituct a-days) when any great qiiestiou was origiilaled, it seeined to be the only utiject of Government lo stand by and watch what party iri the House was likely to give it more suppnri. The .Honourable Gentleman then coiitrasteiJ ihw line of proceeding with the very uppusite one pursued by a Minister in past times ( ^ present day. He wished longer in office, but that they would" bok. the actual difficulties of the cnuntry in the face, ami themselves propose sutih remedies as appeared best fitted to qyercooie; 1)^,-/-.^/eatwJi�ar.^yT^Iia*)ntf ifMed that the general object of ihe-peiiuon was to obtain fret^dora of trade, and the removal of Ihe restrictions by which it was impede e,importaliun of an ai-ticle, though it was lo bfr had at half Ihe price, because it was to be produced at home.-(Hear, hear.)-It was the arrangement of Providence lo bless diflerent countries wiih different advantages. He :heiight that no restriction ought to be laid nu foreign ships importing into this coniilryt whether Ihe pro(|ui-e was of tlieir own or any other couulry: When this restriction was imposed, he was sure that those who framed it did nol clearly see iheadvanlBge of a free intercourse between this anil other nations. The freedom of the transit trade was �Uoa moat desirable object. The importalion of every commodity for re-eXpurlatiou ought la be allowed, and any opposition to this principle was a restriv-tioQ of our commercial trinsaclioos. He was nut aware that a regulation of this sort would interfere with ihe interests of any Gentleman or set of Gentlemen in this country; but if it so happened that it did, he felt convinced that the,House, or any Committee to whom the.subject was deferred, would give every attention to any representationa which should be made lo ibem. But upon asub-ject of this kind, he hoped Gentlemen would go into an inquiry, without Jiiiy prejudice or party feelings, looking only Jo the advancement of the com-meice �f the country., and not listening or j'ieliliiijc to any interest witlioiit considering Ihe justic� of the objections which should be made. A great objection had been .made to. the transit .of German linens, and petitions had,been presented against its importation even for exportation. A vague and idle nniion existed that this would injure the lineti trrfdeof Ireland: Ihat tltat irade wasiu fact at stake, if fuch an impurlalioii were allowed.
