Sir George Clgbk preseated a Pelilion from a number of Farmers in the Cuuiily'of Edinburgh, praying for to alleraiiou in the Malt Dulies.-^PetitidD laid on ihelable. A Petition to ibe same eftect was presented froin Nairnshire. '  - MARRIAGE ACT AMENDMENT BIjLL. On-the motion of .DK Phillihore, the Marriage Acit Amendment Bill was commilled. In the Committee, Dr. PHILLIMoaE moved a chase for lite purpose of legalizing all-marriages contracted by parties under age, through coaeeabneot, design, or iaformalily, where the parties cohabited together for six months after they becarne of age. He said his object was to prevent per- . soi.s taking ailvaolage of their own Wrong, aud annulling at a remote period, contracts entered iiilo by their own artifice. After some conversation between Lord Ossnlslon, Mr. Wynn, Mr. B'-riial, Sir John Nicbel,^nd Mr. Wrottesley, the laller moved as an amendment, a clause taking from Ibe Bill any ex post facte operation, and giving it prospective 'ell'ecl, iilluwing parlies to cons'ider for six'nfibtttbs after Ihe . passing of the Act, whether Ihey would avail themseives of any iiirormalities.

Mr. Be.vnett witj)drew his clause for the {iresent. The House resumed, and the Report was ordered to be received on Thursday next. WOOLLEJJ MANUFACTURE. Mr. CoKWEir presented a Pelitiob from the Woollen Manufactnrcrs at Kendal, praying that Ibe Hdbse would not prolong the continuance of certain Acts affecting their trade, which were enacted to have operation for twenty years afler Ihe Union between iGreat Britain and Ireland. A short discussion followed, in which M^ V. FiUgel-ald, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr. Parnell, Mr. Ricardo, Lijrd Casileieagh, and Mr. C. Hulchins'nn, said a few words each on the policy and necessity of continiiiog the duties, and the. Petition was ordered lo be printed, Mr. Peel presented a Petition from a person named Prehdergraih, relative to certain practices in Ihe Irish Cotirt of Chancery. Mr. Dalt wislied Id know if It was the intentiba of Government to renew the InsOI'rectibU Aet? Mr. C.Grant said, that Ministers had no intention to �rcneiv it this year. Mr. Ualy then gay.e notibe of i motion oil the subject for �Wednesday next. The Chancellor �f ihe Exchequer ihoved that the House on its rising should odjoura tiliMohday. SUPPLY. On the motion of the Chancellor of the Ex-cheque!!, the House resolved itself into a Committee of Supply. Lord Palmerston, in rising to propose the Army Estimates, would not troi^fale the HouSfe witli all the items, but select a few| by nay. of shewing on what principles they had been calculated, and would hold himself in readiness to edtisfy Hay inquiries as to the remainderi The |jrincipai feature of the Estimates was an increadfe pf f6r':e, arid a corresponding inc-reiiSe of charges. There was an uddition.of 10,323 rank and file, and inclo^ng cflicers, of 11,074 meii. This brought an additiditkl expense of 224,000/. The whole sum required for tins branch would then be 4i6,060/. out of rtbich 363,000/. were for regimental charges. There were diminutions also. The clothing allowance for the cavalry of Ireland had been put on the Mote footing as that of England, which had caused.a trifling di-minuiioTi. Tfiere was, however, oil the recruitinJK service!) an increase of 5,d�IS/. becaiifi^the Estimate of last yeiii; fell short of the ieat cliargeB in that amouiit, andit was thoijight'Besttomake up for that dtflciencyjiii the Estimaieii' for this J^eiir. On the other hand", there were, us he sajrl before, diminutions. The reduction of pay of Paiymasters from lA 16*. to I/. 10s.-a reduciion of contingent aU JoivBiioes-the ulteruiion' in that of the cavalry clothing-he observed bmiles on the faces of the [ion, Gert(lem-n ()pjJ0�il^e, He had only instanced these items to sheiv, thut there wai a real disposition to economise-f Ifear^ hear^ from tfie Opjtosi-lionj-and ati endeavonr to'effect^those retreucll-nienls, which, if not easy of accompli8hment, were getieraily-called foi'wiili clamour bjr tbbiie pbn.

The expenses of the third class were all real expenses arising from lofses such as bad occurred from storms and fires at the Mauritius, Newfoundland, Portsmouth, and other places; ,the expenses of removing arms and stores, 4 or 5,000/.; placing the depots of Carlisle and Chester in a state of security, II or 12,000/. Against these expenses were to be set the savings of this year compared with tbe last; The present Master of the Ordnance had carried into ef-feet various reductieits to a degree Rlinost of inconvenience to the public service. . He had suppressed nineteen- establishments, averaging '500/. a year.each; eight establishments in the West Indies bad, been put dow|i by him, and the 'stores belonging to them had becom.e market stores ;-eleven establishments in Great Britain,were sUpptessed-T-these made a saving of about 5,,00,Q/f in the ordinaries. The eStfaordinaries contained} some trifling inci'ease which had been caused, by not selling some of the old stores, money paid iti duties in particular instances, amonntiug together to between 11,000/. and 13,000/. He concluded by moving. That the Comtnittee should recommend to the. House to grant 293,694/. 8s. 8d. as partof the'services for tile year l&ao. " Mr. Home would not follow the detail of particulars, but looked to the result. The object of the House must be Xo see the total amuuut, uud be -'enabled to compare it with the estiiuutes of last year, then, if there were any excess, lo ascertain if the cirrilnistanCes of the country warranted it. He compared the estimates with those of last year, and. he found no decriuse. -Iu Igig the total ordinaries were 527,397/. this year they were 548,000^. making a very cuii-siderabte increase. The.exfraordinariesfor which credit was taUen (he wished the items had, been liiientioned) Were^ in 1819,. 220,824/. J in, 1830, 28(^,38|^/. making a difference, as hud bjeen fairly ebQi^^Httated,,of sixty thousand ppUNtli.

He. thuagbt^ it but fair to coinpare the expenses with those.whtcit were teiiled' in 1792, a period winch pretty much resemhWd the present. Tbi^had been done in another place, to ascertain the roqiparaf:ive,,amDiW^ul vjsjuk of W examining the expetises before tljeni. The total expepees of l3'92�wi?r!5Jr All the expenses ought at least to have been defrayed previous to any of the money going into Ihe Privy Purse. He knew of no authority by which Ministers were allowed to include the expenses of the garrison of the Ionian Isles; The Treaty of Piiris gave the protection of these I�lts to the sovereignty of the British States, with an express stipulation that Great Brst^in should be at no expense to keep troops there, though she was to send 3,000 men for the protection of those Islands. Why then were 3,000/. charged for expenses of British troops in those islands? When the House came to the Military Estimates, he would sheur that the condition was admitted, that there were to be no expenses for forces kept there. Another item, which he wished to mention^ was the menn-facture of gunpowder, of which thef6 were more on hand than could be used in the njist tweniy years, and yet there were 10,000/. annually voted for it. Sometimes it was sold, afler being munnfactnred a I 6/. per barrel, fpr Si.'or 4/. per barrel. One thing more he would- refer y>, which would be fijund in page 16. If t/ie Duke nf Wetling-ton was so anxious for economy, he wuiild ask, how it came tu pass that one iMatthew Collins, after a service of only three years, had been pensioned off} He believed that, according to the 50lb George the Third, Ministers had not the power to give pensions loony persons under ten years of service; and yet he foui.d one pe'rw^n, � a young man, after three years,ser.vicf, at a siilary of i)0/., pensioned off with 45/.} aiiotlier, after four years service with 45/., and another aftei* five years service, with 45/., being billf of iheir pi.;vions salaries. There.were besides two of nine'years service, al salaries of 175/. each, pensioned off, one with 7S/., the other, 87/. a year. The Report of tbe Committee stated^ lhat a practice bad cre^ in of late, of granting pensions for period� of life and service^ Which were not only inconsistent with economy, bat with the practice and cHi� torn of the service generully. The Bill to which he had referred was, iu coi.s.equence, brought in, and those pensions were, according to its provisions, illegal. He was ofupinioii that a Committee should be appointed tp examine wfiat further reductions could be made. The departtnents of the various orders of storekeeper* ougiit to be c^usoli-daied. lie. gave the Duke of Wellington the fullest credit for the efofioiuy pf reducing 19 e�l�� blismenls, his Grace might, Jioweveri have rehing the of tlte Service in the least.
