TtWiltbe present system of local Triisti is, both in principle and prartice, lie tier calculated for rhe.mai-.itenanee of good Roads th^ii. extensive Districts.'Which the slate of most of'the Rcntds rp.uifd the Metropolis at this time incun. trslahly proves.  -" ' .>'  .   That the principle" and provisions of the said Bill are in-' suttiog to the understandings aud degrading. If the feelings of respectable bodies of men, who give- their time and ier. rice gratnituously, who, from their local residence, aremost interested in the state of the Roads, and, from their knowledge and experience, fully competent to their management. That .though the HHI permits a-few individual Trustees lo be cbusf I), yet, in effect, they will be .mere ciphers, undtr the controllof General Trustees and the Surveyor-General, who Will have the entire superintendence and management, with unlimited power to appoint Sub Surveyors, Inspectors, and other..Officers, to purchase .Materials, to make Contracts, &c. That it .appears to this Meeting, that the evident tendency of the Bill is, lo create iiuiiecensary OfficeH with Salaries and Allowances, which will cause much, expense, and entail heavy burdens ou the adjoining Parishes and on the Public. That in the opinion of this Meeting, it is only necessary to read the Bill to perceive that it will be. weak aud in. efficient for all usifttl purposes. . . That it fciibstituien a rash, aud hazardous experiment for a system sanctioned by lone experience, and that there is reason tofea"-, instead of improving, it msy ultimately be injurious to the Roads. - j Thau the Meeting feel it a duty which they owe to themselves and to I lie public, to make use uf all lawful means to oppose the said Bill, and do recommend it to general consideration, that, shuuld this Bill be passed iulo a Law, it may, perhaps, be followed by similar Bills throughout the Kingdom. It was then Resolved-Thai the said Resolutions be reprinted; and ll was further Resorted-That this Meeting observing the " Metropolis Turnpike Itoad Bill" lo have been read a sjecpud lirjie in the House of Common*, and referred lo a Committee,, it be recommended to I lie several Trusts nul lo relax in their exertions In opposing the said Bill; and That this Meeting . disclaiming all private, views, and actuated solely by motives of geucraf gnod, -feel it Iheir iudispeusahle duty to call the alteiiliciti of all the Turnpike Trusts in the Kingdom, of the adjoining Parishes, aud of the' Public- at large, to the Principle and Provisions of the said Rill, convinced, from its nature and tendency, and mode of operation, that it would prove extremely injurious.

Mr. D. GJtBERT presi-nted the Report" of the Com. niittee On the Metropolis Roads Bill. Mr. CUR WEN wished the Bill should be'withdrawn and put off to the next Session, to give time for a move mature consideration of its'provisions. -,-, After a few words from Mr. D. GILBERT, Sir H. PARNELL,1 and Sir E HARVEY,the Report was ordered to be printed, and the Bill ordered to be recommitted in a Committee of ihe.whole House ou the, 8th of May. :Mr. HONYWOOD- presented a Petition from the Hundred of Blackheaih. in tbe Couuty of Kent, praying that her Majesty, restored 16 the full enjoyment of all her just rights and privilegeB.-^-Qidered to be printed. SMOKE OF STEAM ENGINES. Mr. M. A.'TAYLtJR said, he should have occasion lo trouble ihe-House for a very few minutes; as there was not a Gentleman'in the House but must be aware of the mischief aud inconvenience* occasioned by the smoke issuing from the chiinnies of furnaces,of steam-engines. It was nut obly prejudiciatrto health, but Was also extremely detrimental to property ; it was a nuisance in-law, but the legal process for abating it was attended with considerable expense, the fear of which often induced parties to remove from the neighbourhood, even at a considerable loss. He had' been induced by the consideration of these circumstances to apply himself tu the endeavour to provide some effectual remedy. Two Committees had been appointed to inquire into the ubject, and the result of their labours bad been td establish the possibility of" removing this nuisance in a great measure, if not altogether, by the use of furnaces on a> particular construe-liou, which almost entirely consumed--their own smoke. Tbe Hon. Member then proceeded lo describe several instances in which the use of such furnaces had been sntcess-ful in removing the nuisance. Those furnaces emitted but a very trifling quantity of smoke, and that was of a Chirac', ter wholly different'from that of other'furnaces; he, therefore, proposed to.afford lo those persons who might be damaged by such nuisances, a greater facility than the law now gave lo effect their removal. The provision which He should make for that purpose would,operate chiefly by em. powering the Court, iu case* of conviction on indictments 'far nuisances of this description, wherein it should appear that the parlies persisted in refusing to abate litem, to award the payment of costs to the prosecutors. He concluded by . moving for leave to bring, in " A Bill for affording greater facility iu the prosecution and abatement of Nnisaucrs, arising from Furnace* used in working Sienm engines." Mr. TRE.MAYNEexpressed his readiness to concur in the general tenor of the Hon. Member's observations, and should have no objection to some regulation of the kind, to be applied lo the cases of manufactories and steam-engines in towns and populous places, but hoped care would be taken tu exempt proprietors of miues and other work* uf lt>�l description, in remote and mountainous districts, from vexatious proseections. - Mr. D. GILBERT concurred in what had fallen from the Hon. Member for Cornwall, and bore testimony of the smokc-contutniug apparatus alluded to by the - Hon. Mover. � - Sir M. W. RIDLEY hoped leave would be given to bring Mr. GRENFELL'said he should recommfpd his Hon.-Friend to make an exception iu his Bill in iavanr of mine a, and works of that description. � Mr. STUART WORTLEYsaw nonobjection wl)jch'could be made (o the application^rf the measure lo work's in muien which would Hot. be. equally valid ih the. case ofmaunfnf-tories.  , ... Mr. CURWEN said (afi we understood) that the av> Mr. Alderman WOOD differed iu opinion Wiih theHu... Member for Yorkshire, anil tlionght.objeclioos esisled lo'ihi-apphcation of the measare_to works in -mines which cai) W JH#- iitrf Aetfeotjfhi his Hon. Friend "would find it impossible to induce -the .forty-two Metahcw fi^Ctn-uw^l toisgTeetobis Bill,nnle�* an exception were made in fayout; of the former manufactories beiug: generally placed in popylooSjOeigbbourlioods, ibe smoke srisiug them was a great nuisance to the inhabitants; but mining works being generally situated"among moors aud mountain*, U would be hard to expose their proprietors to vexatious proseeutions from ill-disposed persoRs, living in insulated: situations aud cottages scattered among the inonn-tains. Mr. M. A.TAYLOR replied. He. was confident he could make out a case which, would entirely consume the smoke-of the objections of Ihefyriy-two Cornish. Members, and send-them hack, to their mines. He would nut be induced to make any.exception of any place or work-.whatever. If tl House, ihuught proper to make sqch exceptions, they might bring in the Bill themselves, for he would have nothing tu do with,it.-(�oiu/n/eri)-�He would not lend himsdf 10 make any new. law on the subject, his object was Iu 'give greiler effect to the existing law. The smoke of steani-cnginea was by law a nuisance, and might be abated hy indictment on the prosecution of the parlies annoyed. , No persons ought to beauuoy.rd by it in any siluatiou ; ami no'ue but those who could make out a satisfaciory case of being so annoyed would be at all assisted by his. Bill. Tie exception which bad been suggested would have the effect of making legat in particular places that which was bylaw a nuisance, and to thai he could not consent. Leave was then given 10 bring in the Bill. " POOR LAWS. : Mr. SCARLETT gave notice of a motion for the 8U1 of May, far a Bill to alter and amend Ike Laws for the reiiefof the Poor. PETITIONS. Mr. LENNARD presented a Petition from the Inhabitants of Avery, in Suffolk, praying for protection against foreign manufactures.-'Ordered lo be primed. Mr. CHICHESTER presented a Petition from the Importers of Pottery at Belfast, against the proposed dunes uo Poitery imported into Ireland.-Ordered lo be printed. , Mr. WESTERN presented a Petition from the Merchants, Tradesmen, aud other Inhabitants of Colchester, praying that v some further protection might be given lo the agricultural interests of the country- Also,-a Petition from certain owuera and.occupiers of laud in the Hundred of llford, in Essex, complaining of agricultural distress.-Referred tu the Committee on Agriculture. BANKKUPT...LAWS. Mr. J.'SMITH gave notice of his intention, soon after the /ecess, to move for leave- to bring in a Bill to alter and . amend the Bankrupt Laws. The measure he should pro-pos* would i^rly_ra brought forward uii'a"former orcksion, bat would embrace fewer objects and comprise-fewer eoaciments. THE NEW STREET. Sir G. NOEL moved for an account of all monies- ptid by the Comniiiuiuiiers under the Act of Pailianient for. building the New Street, from the period of its enactment, lo the-25th March, 1821-, with the names and description uf persons, and Ihesums paid to each, distinguishingwbo were Commissioners, Clerks, &c. But on the suggestion of-- . Mr. LUSH1NGTON, he consented to withdraw it-until the Chief,Commissioner.(Mr. Huskisson) should be present. Mr. HARBORD obtained leave lo bring in a Bill fur the belter regulating the manufacture and sale of Bread. COMMITTEE OF SUPPLY. Lord PA LM ERSTON moved the Order for the House resolving itself into a.Committee of Supply." Mr. HUM.E'said, that there would he uo objection on Ibe pari .of his Hon. Fcieuda to the half-pay allowances and some ilems uf the same "character, provided the Report should be deferred until after the recess. Mr. WARD'moved, that the Ordnance Estimates be referred 10 ibe said Committee.-Ordered; . The SPEAKER then left the Chair. On ihe motion of Lord PALMERSTON the several est!, mates connected with the half-bay allowances were agreed lo-by Ibe Committee. Lord PALM ERSTON asked, if there would be any objection to the allowances made to Officers retired onfull pay? Mr. HUME, said, that he should uppose some pari uf those'allowances. Lord PALM ERSTON asked if there would be any objection lo the vote for widows'pensions? Sir M. W. RIDLEY said, that besides the pensions paid oul of ihe .parliamentary vote, there, was a fund made up of contributions from the pay of commissioned officers, from which widows derived relief. He wished to know if the Noble Lord's establishment comprised any control over ti.-is fund, or if he himself could exercise any discretion m apportioning it ? � -Lord PALM;ERSTON said that page 45 c J the Estimates described the terms on which widows' pensjona.were,pnid,aarl that his office had no discieiioo whicb.he conld exercise over Ibe grants. : Sir R. WILSON had read in 7Vie Caledonian Mercury of certain proceedings in Edinburgh, in which it appeared that, the Superiatendant of Police was charged with having sigat d false certificates for half-pay, and that when the inhabicuola of that city required his dismissal, his eondnct was defended by the Lord President, who averred that it was a practice very common both in the navy and army. He did nol vouvh fur the correctness of the report, but he thought it highly necessary for the heads of tbe navy and army depart menu to give the fullest contradiction to so disgraceful a declaration. Another subject, upon which he would make a remark, was the sale of commissions. He thought thai there should be same alteration in Ihe form by which such mo-ceedings were conducted, as tbe present one, by compel Imp; the officer to declare upon his honour that be had takco u -more money for the commission thau was per mined fc,y li.e regulations of Ihe service, caused a great deal of incuavt-nieuce and impropriety. Lord PALM ERSTON said, that whatever might be contained in the newspaper report, certain it was lhat in the-army the signing of a false half-pay liar was an offeree uf ihe gravest description. It was scarcely possible, On ac-ruunt of tbe various chicks established, and the general iu-citlcatiun of principles, of honour in the army, forati officer to commit that offence. As lo ihe other topic referred to by the gallant General, he did not know what better arrange, men! could be.devisrd, than to requite of the officer selling the comiuissiou iu ticclnre upon his honour that he hail taken 110 more money for it than'he had previously given. Sir R. WILSON did not complain of Ihe infraction of that rule So much as of Ihe rule itself. Mr. HUME stated the circumstances of the Police Captain of Ihe cily of Edinburgh over again. Captain Brown, �ui>eriute..d*�� of police Ihere, had been convicted of signing false certificates furlhe people under him. The inhab.-l.ul. of tbe cily required bis dismissal. 1 he Lord President refused it; defended the conduct of Brown, ami said that 1^ was a aommeo practice, which waa never punished in the army and navv, 10 sign false half-pay certificates. He �** ;
