From.thia*l�ie-raent-j he .upposed, of ihe Noble E.irl'g, a mi��p-|Mrf)ietKtiH^-�eemi-d to preiraU oat - oL doora teipl^Ct-in� his (the Marquis of Landowh'e) olijecl, which he wished to correct. Il hdd been supposed tliflt he had rrcoiniiieiided the propriety of layit>fj papero before Parliaiiieiiti coiiluiniiig detailed accoilbts nf the chart^es incurred iti supporting the royal household. To advise lhii> liiid iieter been his-intention, fcr he thouuiit the aubjVct very unsuitable lor the Gonsiileradon of PuriiuineDt. With reaped to,lli�. allowances tiJ the Ambassadors lo Foreign Powers, it could not be iii Ihe power of his Majesiy^td cau�e previous estimates of ibetn to be exhibiitd, becuuMe' their amount must depeiid on the poliiir.d clrcuni-slances faf the country; but at the same time he ttiouf^ht it extremely desirable that Parliament should exercise a cor.trol over this enpeiiditure, and the vucialion of it from time lo time, Bnt to include the e:�pendilure under this head wiihin the -charges ou the Civil List, was likely to interfere wilh the urrangetnent, and disturb the compait made between tlie Sovereign and the people at the commenceraenl of the reign; anil ihevefore as he had before staled, he thought that a teparation whs very inuch to be desired. The diatincliou in thia as well as in many other ileitis, tvobld prevent tin: public from being misled hy false notions on Mim iiTiportant subject; and giiard against the sums ne-crssary for the support and dignity of the Crowu being coofouiiiled with others of a totally different nature. The Noble Lord then, movecJ, That an humble Addr.eBs. be presented in his Majesty, praying that his Majesty will'be graciou'ly pleased, to vriitr accuuuls to be laid, before the: House, of all Sal.irieti, Pen-sious, and Alluwauees, which have been made to ftiiaja Minislets within Ihe last ten years. The question was carried in tbe affirtQative with'-out any observations.' N E W. a ESTUICTIVE A CT8.

He had been i,i-fornied that not a single convictipn hati faVen place on offences agai/ist which penal lies had been provided in them, while there had been many convie-tiona for such offences ilnderthe old laws.
