I trn^t that I have been too well kiKwn lo yotjr Lordnhipa during a political life of tiie-rtnd-lwenly'years, however during Vhat ct^'rse of fiilie ive ntay have differed updn pohtical - topics,'6 believe that I �could, in propo!.ing the repeal of that Act, intend -to introduce in ni't' Bill a clause of a.retrospective efFect.-uf ' liear, /iear.V-The Eill which I may have the hoiiour of submitting to your Lordships, will, as \ hatu; already said, extend to nothing beyond ihesituple repeal of the Royal Marriage Aft.-  This tSotion Uas not beet) formed suddenly, orupoiLthi* view of any particular ctrcumslance.s. It is one which I have long eiittr-tained, and often resolved to submit lo vonr Lord-sliips. Though I now postpone it, 1 trust your Lordships will not considerthat I shall take you by surprise, should J present the Bill to the House on some day before the meeting of the Secret Committee ; for whether that Committee may meet or not, or whether the duties assigned to it maybe the same, or diflf'er from those now contemplated, it is .ilill my purpose to present the Bill. 1 lM)pe, therefore, that j'onr Lordships will not be surprised iff offer it lo ihe House some time during the present week, although I do not at present specify any particular day." The Earl of Liveupool's motion for dischaig-ing the order for the mteting of the Committee tomorrow (this d;ty) was as;rpfd lo, and an order ni.ide, that the Committee should sit on Saturday, suhjtcf, ai in the former case, lo any subseqiient order of the House. The order for the attendance of tlie Peers to hear Fjord I'kjllaiid's motion was al.-o discharged, and the House soon after adjourned. HO'JSE OF COM.MONS, Monday, Juse 12 At half-past three o'clock the SrEAKER entered the flouse, and prayers were then read. cork harbocr bill. Mr, BosWELI, brought up a Petition from Ayrshire against the Cork Harboijr Bill. The Petition set forth, that the Bill would impose increased expense on coals imported from the county (and its neighbourhood) of the Petitioners; that there were already funds sufRcient to meet the expenses wiiliout; that the new expenses would affect the little commerce tJiat remained between the coasts most injuriously, especially the linie aud coal trade. Sir N. Coi..THuasT moved the Secojid reading of the Bill. It had been discussed fully up stairs, and the parties who now petitioned had full opporlut-.ity for .stating their ohjeclions. ' He liijped that there would be no atleiiipt made to impetie the progress of the Bill. If there were any objections to its being read then, he hoped they would be allowed to be referred' to the Committee up stairs. Sir 1. Coffin staled that the people of ^Vhite-haven and the neighboarhood were against the Bill. He wished that there should be further information leceived before passing the Bill. i\Ir. CoR'.ven slated that the people of Hull were against the Bill. The competition in the trilling branch of trade which was carried on between Hull and the Irish coast woa so great that there Wiis little or nolliiiig to be got by it at present. Fjir his part he considered the principle of the Bill so objectionable that no alterations could make it at ul! pidutable. He therefore moved that the Bill sliould be read a second time that day three inoiitfis. Sir N. Cor.THURST appealed to the Hon. Member if it was fair in that stage of the Bill to take 1 he sense of the House. Let the objections be referred tn the Committee. If the Hon. Member persisted ill his amendment Ue would oblige him (Sir Nicholas Coltliurst) to take the sense of the House on it. Sir J ames Graham protested against the Bill. The tneasure was altogether a most outrageous tax 0(1 the properly and industry of those who had no rigiit to pay it. Mr. CuRWEN withdrew Iris amendment. The Rill was read a. second time, and on the motion of Mr. BosWELI,, the Petitions against it were referred in llie Committee. A iMessuge was ordered to be sent to the Lord.s, requesting the attendance of Lord ShefSeld to assist in the Coininittee on the Peterborough Election. .Mr, GORDOS presented a'Petition from C. T. Tower, Esq. against ihe Western Canal, RIO IS OF 1818, Mr. P. Moore bmught up a Petition from Messrs, !5eck-*ilh, Poll', and others, praying lor relief. 'I'lie I'-eiitioa stated, that the parlies had suffered certain injuries from the conduct of the mob in 18l(J, for which, after bringing their actions Hi^ainst the paiisli in the regular way, they had failed to acquire compensition. Tliey prayed such relief as might seem fif to the Hunse to grant them. The Chancellor of tiie Exchequer said a few words on the subject.. The Speaker observecl, that the Petition prayed fur rebel, and the Hon. MeiBb^r hatl frankly enough ackuu.vledged, in moving the Petilioii, that llie relief sought was pecuniary relief, and that no other relief would be urcejitable. This brought them to a question of order. The House could not, by a very proper regulatiou belonging to its orders, entertain any Petition for pecutMary relief which was not tirst'recommended by the Crown. His difficulty was, that of det^rmitiiug if the expla-' nation given by lite Hon.-Member to the prayer of-the Peiition, should or thojilU m^\, deteriwiiitj ;the ireatmeni of it by ihe,H9use. Sir E. B.j;rdext, rKJerrin^ to llie old Jaw, said. , that it was reasonable enough wh.sii the civil power i of the country �tood on a very different footing, and every mm was armed under it, lo make it responsible fur all the injuries which might have nccuired. |-*rivate property was then secure, j,iid if �a. re.i-sonable to confine remdneralioii for such iiijuiies as closely as possible, l)�;a'use- nil were allowed tlve rtieans of repelling violence whenever offered. But now when the jealousy of the Government prevented any from possessing arms except themselves, j it was a great hardship to leave a man to iiuffer for j those excesse.s, for pieventing which they had first j of all deprived him of the means, Auotiier hardship there wini, a (lovernment refusing lo be answerable for any excesses, ufler havuig deprived the people of the power of preventing them, and taking upon Jhemselves (the Government) the protection and preservation of 4he peace. He iioped the Right Honourable Gentleman would see the necessity of receiving Ihe Petition, and that ihe House., would-grant the relief soitght, as few claims ever made on the publrc pUrw-tvere more just and proper to grant than tlurt CotUdintd in the Petition. The Chancei.lok of the Exchequer would not object to the bringing up of the Petition, but Ihe House would see the danger of opening the dour to similar claims by granting the prayrr of ir. The Petition was brought up, read, ami ordered to be printed. MARKET HARBOROUGH ROADS BILL, On the iiioliun of Lord Al.THORP, ibis Bill was recommitted,   and several   Petitions   which   were brought np against it were referred to the said Committee. CALLINGTON ELECTION, Sir W. BuRRELL brought up the Report of the Committee, which declared it'to be Ihe opinion of ti.e Committee that Sir C. RohiiiHon and the Hon. Edward Pyndar Lygnn were not returned, and that Matthias Atwoodand Wm. Thompson were relurn-td ; and that the petition was not frivolous. Mr. Lindsay presented Petitions from Aberdeen, praying that the drawbacks and bounties on Irish linens should be extended to those of Scotland. A Member presented a Petition from Hull against any alteration of the duties on Foreign Timber; which was referred to the Coinmilleeou Trade, Mdiiufaclnres, and Commerce. Sir R, 'Vaughan presented a Petition from Merionethshire, praying for a reduction of the duties on Coal and Culm exported from that county. SirJ, Mackintosh presented a Petition fiomthe town of Galway, praying fur some alteration in their Charter and Corporation, With that felicitous hu. mour which characterised that country, and to which their duller neighbours could lay no claim, they had described their town as one which was incorporated by ancient prescription,-f A laugh.J The petition was brought up and ordered to be (irinted. Mr. Hume moved for Accounts nf the amounts of securities given by the Receivers General of the Land Tax, the Distributor of Stamps, and one or two other offices.-Ordered. THE QUEEN. Lord Castlereagh said that he rose for the purpose of moving that the Order of the Day fur resuming the discussion on the papers sent down to the House by his Maj-'sty, should be read, in order lo postpone it until Friday next, lii doing this, he trusted that the House would see the necessity of his withholding any information as to what pas:-ed upon this very im))ortant and delicate subject, itnd of his refusing to say a single word, besides those which might be necessary for him to use in entreating the House to keep their minds and impressions in precisely the same stale as they were ut present, utilil the fullest cx'plauation could be given, without danger or inconvenience.- [Cries of Hear, ^ear.)-He proposed lo (jut the discussion off till Friday, that being a more convenient day than Thursday, There would be a drawing-room on Thursday ; and it might be necessary for the convenience of the House to adjourn over that day. He had, therefore, preferred fixing on Friday, rather than have to adjourn the subject from day to day, as there inii;ht be an ursrent necessity for going on with it aflerwards with all convenient ("peed, as indeed it was not in tha natuie of such a subject that it could be delayed for any length of time. While the occasion offered, he would al-o request of the Noble Lord, whose motion on the Gramponnd Bill stood for this day, to exercise ihut obliging disposition which he had already frequently shewn with regard to this very Bill, and postpone its consideration till a future day. This re- ! quest he made in consequence of the very import- | ant affairs of state whxh occupied Ministers at present, preventing them from giving that attention to the motion of the Noble Lord's, which the interests of the country so imperiously demanded of them. Sir M. W.Ridley felt that the House would i^e quite confident that he did not intend to transgress by a single observation the advice which had been given by the Noble Lord. But in rising to express his wishes that all partiesoul of the House, as well as in it, would preserve a rigid abstinence from all rumours or observations tending in the least rlegree to the disadvaniuge of either of the illustrious parties concerned, he meant also lo recommend to those who were tiumediately etvgai^ed iu the conduct of this very delicate and difficuli business to abstain from publishing any thing that was done in the course of transacting it.-ftlear.J-He need net refrr to the experience of Members to remind thera what evil effects were likely to spring out of any attempts, by direct or indirect publication, lo prejudice the cause of either of the.illustrious parties. Hi; hoped that in the future commerce or infer-course relating to this very delicate subject every thjug vyould be kept secret except to the parties eit-gaged in maDaging it. Mr. BaoUGHAU was equally anxious with the Noble Lord or hi� Hon. Friend us to the necessity of abstaining from any observalions there or in any other place on the vefjr important aud deJLcaie sub- jeirt to question. Neitiier he nor his fin. and L-amel Friend had as yet been gnilt^ of a single bieuch of that secresy which the foh^n-, ard their rhurnc-ters anrf duiies in relation to li a- solje?'. deio-iiid-eil. He highlv approved of the snsi^i-stiun of id-Hon. Baronet �� to preventing the (�miiiininlCa i n of fads, by confining 1 lie knoWleilgr  ,s no necis- sily for any person being acquain e I with the p.i-s-i'lg circiiinsiau'jes of the ii.-gn(iarioii luyt-oil tie King's Seivanis on one side, nu 1 iiis ilin-triori* Clien", his HaH.-aiid Learner! tjoilrague aod himself on yhe other, Bnt he had as vet seen, no di- closure of fuels at all ; and if any disa Ir. Greni'ELL, .Mr. Calcraft, and the Chancellor of tha ExcHEQUfc.a, the House resolved itself into ;t Committee, through which the Bill passed.-Tlte: House resumed, the RejJort was brought up, and the Bill ordered lo be recommitted. The Report on the Mutiny Bill was brnog �> np, ordered to be engrossed, Jtnd read a third lime tomorrow. INSOLVENT DEBTORS' BILL. On the motion of Lord. Althorp, the Insolient Debtors' Bill was recommitted.-Several amendments were agreed to. Mr. Bright proposed that the clause excepting Crown debtors from the benefit of tins .Act should be rejected, and one suhs'.itued to nroyide that a'l such debtors should be entitled to claim the benefit of the Act, where their debts to the Crown did nut exceed 200/. The Attorney-General reminded the Hon. Member that smugglers were repeatedly brought into the Exchequer for ()enallies of the dtscrii.tiou that he alluded to. Now thoi.e penalties were rt. peatedly operative, aud paid hy the parties, when lliey could not otherwise evade them ; and in �ii instances where the parties, after a certain terni of coiifiiieiiient, were obviously incouipetenl to pay, they were always relieved by the Crown. Mr. Bright said, his ohjei.l was not to render so much of the mercy of the prosecutor dtpentl u(ion sufferance. VViih re.s[)ect to what had fallen from the Hon. and Leariieil Genileaian, all he should say was, that such persm.s is were alluded lo might,'by the introduction of a cl.ius� to such nii effect, bring those liable lo the penaliie?, and whi� obviously could not pay theoj, before the Court of King'. res8 his auapuded clause, which was accordingly withdrawn. Mr. CbetWynd proposed a clause, which was
