Sir, Thomas MAiitlundapjiointed three (jf the Nobles of Corfu,and an eminent land surveyor, to inquire and report what coaippiisulion the claim-ants were entillt'd lo, and according 10 lliut rejiurt they were paid. It had been said lhat the game money - whs nqt p^iid to the Parga-niotes which ii'ad lieen received, and that great delay had: taken place in the diitribution. As lo the first objection, the fact was, that although a (liHVrent coin was paid, it wa� of tUe same value as lhat received. As to the charjfe of delay, the inolant the money was, received, - Sir T. Miiilland named three Co^i�mi��iotitr?^li^. �li�tribut5e it ; but viiripiis persons-�a,OTe;'S|)y'�^Tdi3 have -uwtgagea ^n>vdftfeRhfe>^o'^Vj?rtti& ^Keiii agiiiii haviiig claims against t&pse .mortgagee*, so lhat in a shprt space of time 7OO claims of that tialure - were preferred.- His Lordship said he was persnaded that, whatc^ver imprirssiotis migiit be made on the public mind here, thsit on the spot a very different account would be given of the transactions. Another Kroiiiid of objection had been, that under the Treaty of Paris the people of Parga were bound to pay for the 3,000 troops whichthey might raise; but that was entirely a mistake, the Treaty of Paris said nb sijch thing.   A convention was to he Diade with the (leople on thiR subjeet, but Sir Thomas M:jil-land thought, and iii' his opinion  he   thought correctly,   thiit   it   would   be  improper   m have put that Treaty in force ut  that   time. - Under his   management   the   revenue   of   the    lonim Islands has been considerhbly improved,-as would appear by the payments which had been made from it of the whole military Stafirin the iVledilerranean ; and under the circiiinstance of that improving revenue. Sir Thomas .Mait^tid iiud thoutilit it imprudent to push the Convent inn into efi'ect, until they could form a judgment of what the revenue was likely 10 be.   TliC'tiext charge against Sir Thomas .\Iaitliind was, that he had imposed an onecoos system of laxnlian on the people uf those i^^lands; but the fact was, that he hatf only imposed one lax-lliiit ini oil-which was far fiom being i>p-prebsive or burdensome, as the increa.'-e in the pro-iluce would teslify.   U had been said that through the medium of the Senate taxes liad been impu.ved. Il was perfectly true that the Senate had imiiosed a tax upon currants, biif'if siiiy person looked at the Kpeech of Sir Thos. Maiiland on opening tht'Session, in winch he descanted in tbeislroiigest terms on their duties as reprejeulattves, they would be satisfied he was not u man to be- arraigned in that iitanner.   Another-charge was, that he hud interfered with the fre^doiil of condnterce. This arose from an extensive combiuafion 16 monopolise and raise the price of corn, which S�.r Thomas IVIaillaiid hud counteracted, by purchasing grain at, the public .expense ut Cephaluiiin,,btilown rose to move the Order of. the Day for the'third reading of the Privately Stealing io Shops, the Capital Felonies Repeal, and the Commutation of Punf�hinent Bills. He said he would not do their Lordships the injustice to im-Jgine that they would desire to retain any extreme degree of severity in the criminal luw, uiiless they were satisfied that some ad-vaulages resulted from it; but if their Lordships saw that for a long time these hiws had been B dead letter, that they had been an ob8trut:tiou to Courts'of Justice, and a meatis of increasing crime, by deterring persons from proseCuliilg, they would feel that they could iiot top soon vxpuiige them from theStaiute Book. The Privately Sieul-iiig in Shops''Bill, to wliich he now particularly adverted, hud Hardly been executed at all for the last seventy years, oti account of its extreme severity; so armed againiil it Were the feelings of Judges, prosecutors, uiid witnesses, thalit was impossible Ipobtain a conviction iindetit, even where it *as desirable for the ends of justice that one should be liad. To Khew how iwiperative the law was, lie would beg leave to read to their Lordshijis a short statement of the resulib, f;om which it appeared that from 1805 to 1818, there had been iti all Eiiglaiid 352 cphvictious aud'Dot one execution. Iu Loudon and Mitidlegex there hud been One execution in a century. On the Northern Circuit, from.1730 down to this time, there hud beeu one execution only. On Ihe Westtrn Citcuitj during the last 50 years, there had breii 3^3'caiivictious and lio executiong. In Liin^asbite/from 1798 to 1818, there had been niae convictiunsiand m execution. > ^toia thee - Crowt|ier.and:Mr. Collins, bath respectuhle ir..f! �-c(f.a,iurii to the operation of a law of uneb severiiyas to h� shocking tt> Ifumunity, He askeft if their Lord' ships were prepared to reject the liirraiiimoos seiiti" roeiits of the House of Cum'iiions.or.ihe,public .h,c larae, and of tImt class particularly interested, "bj refusing the repenlaf the la;w.        The LobS Ceancellop. regretted fhjt tht ia^a period at which'these Bdls were brought in, pre-cloded them from having the advantage of the opinions of the Judges.

Frous 18 years experience of the Recorder's Reports, hs must say, lliat so far from oliserviiig that e.xtrciue sensibility in prosecutors which had been stifted, he had been astonished at the little regret exhibited on those occasions by prosecutors. He llioU{�lit that the apprehension of cdipital pUDislim<-iit liuU deterred inniiy from the commission of capitnl of-feucts, a.nd in -that ag-iin hespol^e t-lie sentiments o' that Learned Lord (tilleHborough) wlipin he hud before aljudedto. Lord Redesdalb opposed the Bill. The iVliarquis of LansdowN replied. , The Lord Chancellor, Ijelbre the question was put, moved to add lo ihe clause of repeal, th-words, "as lo goods under the value of 10/."-r-.Ai" ter which strangers were ordered to withdraw.. , Ou our return, we understood the BilJ was read a tliird lime and that no division Jiad taken.placf. On our re-admjssion belpw ihe bar we found' Lord RedesdaLEoii his legs opposing the clause repeating the  law against going disguised with blacked faces. : The Marquis of LlIfSDOWN said, the partiea were still subject to a fine fur the first offence, and transportalioii for the seconcK Lord RctiESDiLB said his objection was, -that as there would be no panishmeii? for going witu blacked faces, persons intending lo commit otfencea would alw-ayg go so disguised, . The iyjar  prevent the overflowing of land,   looking to thfc great property of that description in LSiifbUiSihi^e," and that the crime could not be cotiitnttird except wilfully and muliciom^lyi to the repeal id" thut-lie must also object." It was proposed Intake uway the capital part of the charge in   ilie case of sending threatening letters,   where money  was  mit demanded ; but as the happiness of private familir* would be left exposed to the ui,sault� of olalice, uiiil he could consider few offences of a more seriods Coitiplexiob than that, be must oppdse that also. He objected also to the rtfpeal of iheQ^d Geo. 111. cap. 40, the mannracturers of the North of E^iu-land having always, as he und>-r!>tbod, cbiisiderrd that Act essential for thei r protection.
