But diii;i(heif Lordships feel tliemselfes Competent to mu|te'aiiy iinpruvenient in the manageqieot of the proceedings of such a Commission? He denied that any parties could be aggrieved by that which had been done. They still had the full use of iheif inventions^ and miglit apply them in any way, eveq to the execution of country bank notes. The Bill only prevented them being used in the imitation of Bank of England notes. If any-of the parties thought lhem�elve8 really injared, the Courts were 6peii ; let them go to law, and see what da'mages a Jury would give them. But was that to prevent their Lordships from proceeding with'the Bill in the meantime, and were they (o be obslrucied by the opinion af a party, wh'ich, besides being Very small, were interested in their opinion i He did not undertake for the. entire and satisfactory ellVcls of the pl^n adopted by the Commission, but by ilie opinions of those best calculated to judge, it promised 10 give perfect satisfaction. At any rate, it ought to have a fair chance; give it a fair trial-Icrt them run any risk of increasing the waste of huiuaii lives, when there was any pra!i.pect of a remedy. Me objected to receiving ihe Pelilidn. The Eiirl ofL^tUDERDALG said he bad not heard one single re>iBoo offered fur not hearing the parlies, as they- requested, against the Bit}. The plan which had been adopted might be very good ; there was no ullei^ation to the contrary in tlie Petition. The party did' nut wish to enter into a cumparisuii of his plan with others; he complained thai the Hill contained. provisions of great injustice. He I did not complain ihat his plan was refused, lie i said it had been adopted, and that he should be injured by the Bill, because it would prevent him from making use of his own invention on other occasions. If this was no case for the consideration of Parliament, lie knew Ikot bow a case could be framed at all. Lord ReDesdalE was of opinion that the Bill did not take away the advantages of their plans from the inventors ; it only prevented the use of them in engraving Bank of England notes. The Earl of LAupBaDALE.said, that the Petitioners were ready to contend that the Bill was cal-cntated to i/ijurethem. If the Noble and Learned Lord were right in his opinion, it surely Could l>e no reason f'-ir refusing to hear Counsel agaiiisi the Dill. The Petition was rejected, after which the House resolved itself into a Cummitte on the Forgeries Prevention Bill, which paissd through the Com-initlee, and was reported without amendments. CITT PETITION, Lord Ebssinb again called ttie attention of the House tp the Petition from the Lord Mayor and Cprpotatioq of London against the Bill of Pains and Penalties in progress through their Lordships' House. The Petition being again read. The Lord'Chancgi^Lqr repeated bis previous objection. The Huuse ought at least to be cautious in receiving such a Petition. He left it with their Lordships to determine if it would be- right, under tbe circuinstauces which he had pointed out, to receive it.

He thouglrt it would be a mark, of disrespect te the City little deserved frtun the House. ' The Lord CttASCELLoR protested against ijie conclusion that he meant any disrespect to the Ci^. But there could be no more right in that corpora^ lion than any other to interfere with the proceedings of litat Housf, and if their Lordships a'd-mitted of such interference with their judicial proceedings, tiiey had better never proceed judicially at all. In wliat he said he had only attempted lo protect those forms of the House which had exis'ed for ages, and so far from being disrespectful to- the City therein, be had sivewn that be was the be�c friend to every man in the City by what he had done. The Duke nf Hamiltok explained : ^e thought it iroposbible to torture what'he had >aid into a ptii-sonal ullasioii lo the Noble and Learned Lord. � Lord Reue50ai>g thought the'Petition objectionable, bccHiiie It arraigned Secret 'Commttl^ea and Bills of Pains and Petmlties,'except such a* might be aareeahle to the City. Lord Holland Mckivowledged, that in his opinion the Petition on>{ht not to be received ; but not because, 114 Ihe Noble and Learlied Lord said, it arraigned tiiU* of Pdinir and Penalties, and Secret Cninmitiers ; he w>is not aware that the Petition drJ so, but if such were the fact, he did not know that it was not the right of the subject to stale objections lo those modes of proceeding, even at the bar of tlir.House. His objection to the' Peiiiion was on account of its going one Step further. The Petitioners toolkit on themselves to say what. were the contents of sealed^ bags of papers, whit^h bad onljt been �opened'in a'Secret Commilte<?, which contents it was not in the nature of things they:could know any thing about, ffo Petitioner c^uld hnYfi.-a right to assert what bad passed in a Sifcret Committee, excrpt so far as he might be acquainted witii it from public notoriety, or frOK the Journals of the Huu.se. To receive the Petition would be to acknowledge that ihe contents of the green b'.�g, whicli had been referred to a Secret Coininitiee, were cunfined to one particular subject and character of evidence, which, whether true or false (he himself knew not), could not be known to the Peti'ioner.'i, He could not concur iu the motion of his Nuble and Learned Friend. Lord EasKiNG maintained, that enough reaiou hud been shewn him lo convince him that he could not have dune right by tefusing to present the Petition. The Petition was rejected. MARRIAGE AC'l'S AMENDMENT BILL. The House resolved itself into Committee on the. Marriage Acts Amendment Bill. Lord Redesdale objected to the Bill, which, siuce it had been sent back from their Lord'sh�ps, U liad been �o allered by amendments that nothing of tile urigiiiai remained. He would give lUie iii-tance of tl.iese alieralions. In the original Act Wf-re prokisinii!* for rendering marriages, solemnized upder |)�rticnl�r circumstances, " null and void 10 all intents and purposes." The original Bill for amending ihis Act recited these terms fcirly ; ihe amended Bill only used the word " voidable," �And assumed tiiat the old Act required soil to be instiimed, whereas such marriages wtre hy that Act in themselves good for uotbing.

The pirticular kinds of marriage were recited in the old Act, all which dislinctioi.a were laid asi n civil law iis the Gentleman who hadj prepared the Bill, bat be nausi take the liberty to say, thaiit was almost impossible to display greater ignorance of the fommon law than was manifested in the preparation of the Bill ; as
