Mr. Maberlt said, he did not rise in c6mm�itt on ihe bargain which the Right Hon. Genlleoiait liiul this day concluded, but to state that h" bi?. lifved the Right Hon. Gentleman's calcubtiona wmild prove incorrect when the accounts for whu-U he (Mr. Rl.) had moved were producetl, anrt submitted to the test of examination,    Ii� the fitst place,  he thtiught the Right Hon.   GeiitleiM^r incorrect in staling that on liie 5Vh January la�t the, uiiliinded debt was only 38  or 39 millions; nuiw he thought it would prove Ip have beeq then, aiid'. to be now, 45,879,258/.   Such was his calculaltatty as well as he could niwieretand the account*. nill Hud that on the 5lh January there were an� fiindeil thirty-six millions in Exchequer bill*; S dt Coo,000/. of these wete provided for, hut remaiuKl outstanding.

This of rourse added to the ut*. f'lirideil debt.    How the Riglit Honourable Gentleman  made  out that thirty-nine million* was lUe wljole amount of the conaulidated fund lie was utterly nt a loss to gueS!'.   Did he include ^heri^tt or nine millions i.*�nfd to cover the arrears of the consolidated fund ?

HOUSE OF LORDS rjiied to her father, there was not a word said about her heirs; but evea if there was, she was under age nt th^ time. There was another consideration fqr their .Lordships, which war, that at t\ie death W her father; ^he having dleii before hi�fW lief� ex^^etiWQtMyMliCil^ Ibijn^ht proper, Buijat&r lh liote vfner father, Was weak iii two respects, becausie she miglit have been excluded by Ihe birth of an heir male. of. that or any other sultsequent marriage,' and .also that she might die before her father; at Ihat time she coubl do nothing more than bring an action Io purge encumbrances like a snhstilnte'in-entail;' hut Ihat was not the case, as it relii:ed to her son, wlio survived her father without either of these events having occurred. He would suppose a father bound by his contract of marriage to leave his estai* to the heir, who had three soiw. Tbe eldest, be would say, had right to Ihe succession if he survived bis father; tbe second siiu would have tbe aame right if be survived them both, atid so with the younger son if be survived the three. Was it not then quite clear that nu deed or discbarge of the eldest son, or of him and bis father tog'etbeT, could cut nff the rights of the two younger sons? Uuder these considerations be had no doubt but iheir Lordships would overrule the decision of Ihe Court below. Mr. Brouciham followed on.Ihe same side. Mr. Clark k, llie Scotch Advocate, commenced to address their l^ordships as Counsel for the Respondent. The Loud CnANCELton observed, as it bad arrived at Ihe iiflur for cnmmeiiciiig public business, if it met with their Lonlships' pleasure, be wonld move that the fnrlbrr arguments of Counsel in this case should be heard to-morrow, instead of Friday, Ibe usual appeal day, as that would he tbe first day nf Ternri, and it would be inconvenient 10 the suitors of his Court if he was obliged to be nbsent. He aecurdingly inoveil, Ihat Ihe further consideration of Appeals should be adjourned until lo-morruw.-Agreed Iu. Earl MiNTO took llw oaths sHd bis seat. ' AGRICULTURAL PETITIONS. Lord Napier presented two Petitions frbm certain Owners and Occupiers of Land in Berwickshire, praying for an inquiry into the mesas of aflbrding relief to the Agriculture of ihe County. The .Marquis of DoWNStllBE presented a similar Petition from the Landholders of Hie County of Kihiare. The Petitions were severally read and la'rd 011 Ihe table, Mr. Fane, and several other Members of tbe Honse nf Cnmmuus, brought up the Bill for regnlating tbe Office of Clerk of the Peace in Ireland, aud the Ciiy of Gloucester Gas Li^hi Bill. . They were read a first lime, CIVIL LIST BILL. Mr. BnoGnEV brought up Ihe Civil List Bill,a8-amendeTlie Petition was laid on Ihe table. CONTEMPTS OP COURT. Lord At.t�ORr prrsenfed a Petilinn from a nainher of Prisoners confined in the Fleet fuf tonlrronts in the Court of Cbancerr, and Iheir ubjecf was to =lale their case to--ihe Honile. They'had been commill^dfor varioas.informalities and for Ibe iloo-payment uf money, many' of lhe|d for several years, A wuiuan, 81 years'of age, was confined Iwealy-one ytars; anollier of 60 years  f- ag^, was confined nilie-teen years: and a third fur oiue years.. He was-iBfarmedtf aiMlher, who. was now dying in gaoI,aflcr a lo'ng impri'waaieilt. Ilia object was to bring such fiersons, who had incurred ran-tempts uo peeaniart>^ groitnds, within Ihe purview of his Bill for Ibe RelCef uf Insolvent Debtors. Mr. BBMHErr thought the ease of the Petitioners -was re sitjr harsh. He wished the Conrt of Cbancer3i Jiad twhe a leara list of persons committed for those debts laid be&re Ihe Nobl^ persUo at tbe head of tbe Conrt. It was paiaful In tee pehoin imprisoned Ibruaghool their livei^ ufleik, for non-payment of' monejr which they bad no mniaa of |>ro> cnrloi;.   - < "        ^ Mr, Le^kii^llT eiftireiy agreed i�-^iie saggeslion , e^ Bob. and Learned Qenltewv.. There wer? lB�iiy'^%ese' cnnteqiiita not for prcnnisry 'canses, arid they cdold not Iherefore wed conte'witbi^ tlie-provisions of Ihe bisolvrni Debtors' Bill,  A list ought at periodiCsl periods io be laid before Ihe Cotirt, The Pelllion was ordered to lie oo tbe table, and ordered to be printed. BREACH OF PRIVILEGF- Mr. Wtww said he had moved some ti,�e ago for the at-tendance of certain persons who had commenced an action against the Warden nf the Fleet Prison for Itlwraling Qiris-lopher Burton, Esq a MeiE^er of that House, contiiied for debt, Since Ihat time lie heard tbe action was abandoned, and Ihat tbe persons were ready and anxiuns to threw themselves on the mercy of the Honse. On tbe motion of the Hon. Member Ihe order for the attendance of tbe said persons was enlareed until Monday se'anight. MILLBANK PENITENTIARY. Accounts from Ibis Establishment, shewing the rules and resnlatiuns for its management were laid on Ihe table, ami ordered to be printed. Sir W.Curtis gave notice of a motion on Wednesday nexi.for Ibe better regulation (as we uudeistood) of tbe Militia of London, GREF.NLAND FISHERY. On the motion of Mr. LiisHlNaTON, the House went inio a Committee on the Greenland Fishery Acts.-The Report was oniered to he received to-morrow. NEW LOAN. The Chancellor of the Exchequer rose to .stale, that as it wa� the usual course 10 apprise I'ar-liainetit of the terms on which a new loan was ron-tracted, he rose now to state the conditions upon which subscriptions had been entered into this morning. It was his intention to hare given notice this day, that he would submit this, commanication to the House ill the Committee of.Wavs and iVleaa& on Friday next, when, if |io9Rib|e, he meant tp have stated his fiitsncial plan. The reason which led him to entertain this notice was, that three days were allowed from and iacludtnt; the present for makiog up the ftubscription*. These, however, were nil made good the moment the 8ub�criptifou� were, op^qed this luurniug,' and this 4elaj became ,... Off iJsgHa*�ii^^<^.,i\^^ G�Bll?aii�m which the new Loan had been coatractetl. Iji the Commilteer~^ '   - The Chance 1,7.0b of Uie Exchequer rose and said, that it was Ins doty to call the atteniioii of the Committee to u trausaciion respectini;the funding Ih.rsrooruinK of a i-ertain . portion of the outstanding .Exchequer Bills.   This communication, though for tbe reason he had ulreaoy stated it was not originally his ititentiou to have made before Friday   next, yet tbe  circumstances  that  had occurred this mnrniut^ reiiderin(^ further delay itii-necessary, enabled him now to stale, by tbe earlieci op|uirtnnity, the terms of the new loan.   He called upon the Committee with the more autisfactiuu tn ratify the terms that had been agreed upon for the public Hiterest, because. the bargain made was most advantageous to the public, it   had  also tiiig  peculiar   distinction, in  which   it  diSVred from every preceding  contract,  that  the  ctipi-tal meant to be  made the subject  of contract according to the o|seration of this day's proceeding, will in the result be of lesser amount than the actual som subscribvd, or the stock exchanged fur it.
