Tiie Deputy Serjeant at Arms lulotmed the House tiiat Richard Armstrong Jervis iliad surrendered him>eir, and was llien in his custody. The Chancellor of the Exchequer moved that the order made yesterday for an humble Ad-dreis to the King, praying that his Majesty would be .graciously pleased to issue his Royal Proclamation, offering a reward for the arrest of Richard Atinjltong Jervis, be read.- It was read accordingly and then disthiirged. The resolution upon which it was founded was also read. The Chancellor of the Excheqoer next moved, that Richard Armstrong Jervis be committed for his ."aid offence to his Majesty's gaol of New-f^ate. This liiDlion was agreed to, as wtll as another, that the Speaker do issue his warrant to the Keeper of Newgate, ordering him to bring up the said R. A.

The Chancellor �f ihe Exchequer in pro-ppsiiig that the House do go into the Coinraitlee on the BaV^a'ck hgreemeiit RetoJutioii, bejii^ed leave Ut g�atebriefl}' ihe i^anraclion lo which the Bill refeireil. it hiak ivelf knulVn that quarters were provided liy privati;'contract for� nne regiment of Life Guariis in the n�ii>hbourhood of'Portinaii-sqiiare. The lease hati expired of the present place where ilie Barracks were held, aiid the' quarters . were still kept on u yearly agreement. Much inconvenience had liptu felt, frorn the men not being quirtert-d or. I lie same spot as that in wliich the stabling for their liorst.s Wad, and Vutions urrangeihenis had been iiiider coii-siderntiotr fura'fu(iire establishment of ihis corps �|',ent*8 Park, for-j sum not exceeding tlie presei.t annual expense, paid for the iiiconvenienl quartpi> they occupied. The agreement was, that the gen-rlenien whom he had named were to ipceive for buildini; snbstHiitial and durable Burrack!? Tlie Right Hon. Gentlemnn said that the improvptl arrangement wns to be rffrcled at no greattfr exjiense than Ihe previous inconvenient one ; ihut Mi-ssrs. Nicholson and Ijakervvcre lo leceive 5,400/. a-3'eai, for thirly-one years, for carrying it into effect. IJf (Mr. Calcrufi) knew these geiitliroen lo be of the tirst respectability, but it was naturul they would not enter into a contract without having a prospect of deriving a profit from it. Now, of course li^' knew nothing of this iipw contract-it might, for aught he knew, be u very bentfioial one lor the country, but he ihbught the brstwsy would Imve been for the jjublic to cunlroct lor the whole.expense at once, and nut lo bargain for it by an annu�l reiit for thirly-one years. To say that the public after the expiration of that terra would have tlit-barracks for nothing, was lo say little, wfien it Avas considered they tnuiit previously liave paid 150,00,^)/. lor them. He did nut mean lo oppose this a^rep-nient, but he thought its udvanlanes ongl.l 10 be more satisfactorily explained than tiiev now were. The Chancellor oI the ExciitiQUER assured the Hon. Member, that the matter had been fully considered, and letters written to a. iitunber of persons, for the purpose of creating a compeliiion for the ondertaking. Messrs. Nicholson and Bakw'.'* offer ,was the most advantageous that could be obtained, and by it, in ccmpurison with any of ilie others, the public would gain four year's rent. He assured the Hon. Member, iliat ihe original expeii.�e was inquired into, and an estimate of the inlerert upon iliat sum made, the result of which shewed that this bargain was a most advantageous one for the public. Sir John Newport also thought it extraordinary that this agreement had not found its way into the regular barrack estimates-some rea&un ought to be shewn, why it was itiade the sobject of a separate arrangement. The Chancellor of the Exchequer repliecf, that the agreement had been iii�de since (he esti-inatts-were framed. There could be nothing whatever to call the contract in question, il it wa.'s considered wilh aileiilion. Two regiments of life goaid.s luiglit, he thought, be considered the permanent . eslahlislimenl-one of them w.is commorliously quartered in the barracks in Hyde-Park, the otiitr in King-street, Portmaii-square, rncoiivpniently situated. It was necessary to give up the places renful for the latter, and this very preferable, and equally economical plan had been struck out, instea
