The LoKD Chancbli^or said, after the tnatiner this subject had been'introduced by the Noble Lord, it was with pait) that be found him�i:If compelled to vote ugainst the second reading of ilie. Bill. He had no doubt but thece might bnve been many cases of very great seveiriy uiidei'. the Marriage Act, since the year 1/54; and if the prrseiit Bill was brought for Ihuae suffering under it, who meant right when the marriage took place, he fur one would not object lo it. TheNii-' ble Lord had said the Bill required great considera-' tioi), mid it had received it-it had been befure tlieir Lordships three times previous lo its now being laid on the table, and the last lime their Lordships did nut allow it to be discussed, because it had breii; before them and rejei-ied the Session befure. Mu.--riage was nut only a civile but a sacred contract, aiid there might be 19 or 20 inslBocey of those'kind of cases under the Marriage Act of great severity, and of such a nature that every man innst have an nnxiely to relieve ; hut this B>li had a retros|iectiv>j it would be much better to say at once, that alt marriages were good ; it would be ten thousand times better for public wisdom to proiio-iitice that all niurriages, gdud or bad, were legal, than to' I'r-jve it to the rsprice of un iiidividu-jl, as guardian,, to say at which tiipe the wife should cease to be a-proj-tiliite, .iiid her children hastards. He was perfectly sati.-lied, taking it as a,moral subject, fhat it �'�-ivn much better the Act should stand, than the Bill uf Aineiidmenl should puss intg a law, fief agreed itiat marriage once celebrated should liever be disturbed according to the Act of the 2fiih iif George 111. There were certainly cases wlieie panics had acted under mistake, and he had iiu liesiiu'io'i ill saying ihey ought to be relievetl as far as |iassil)le without disturbing the - general law on th� siiliject. For the reasons he had-jjiven, he con-sidered it his duty to say non-content\o the si;coiul reading of. the Bill. the Noble Earl ineunt'by fhe-Noblt-and.
