PETITION OF THE PARISH OF CUi.DAF.F. General HART beeged leave to remind the House that lie hail lately presented a Petition from t|je Inhabitants of ibe County which he represented,relafive.M the injustice and oppressions which they are compelled tyendure under I lie present system of Distillery Laws in l>t>1antl; Iu the beginning of the present week, he had preteoted one from the Parish of Donagb, in that Comity, a�iJ he >i'6w offered one from the Paiisb of Culdaff, a Parish which hail suffered as much as any other in Ireland under Ihe severities authorised by those laws ; that the Excise officers, under the pretence of levying fines off parishes or town lauds fiir the offences of individuals, seized what property they pleased, and sold it for ivhat sums 1 hey .thought proper; that the Petitioners had lost the greater pa�t of their properly, and many of them had hi en driven to destitution. The House would observe, that when the goods were seized, they were not sold by auction^ and the residue returned to the proprie--turs; 011 the cvntrai-y, Ihey wei;e in many instance* disposed of ,by means unknown to .the proprietors, from whom; all accounts' fcave been withheld, nor can any information be obtained on the subject, f licensing small stills in Ireland, lie would speak with confidence, as the present laws prohibit all persons, except those of very tgrge capital, fiopt distilling spirits; .in consequence of which, and I lie want of markets for grain, the peasantry are impelled lb commit breaches of the Excise laws, and this practice is not now, as formerly, confined to the mountainous districts, but is extending to most of the counties of Ireland. �The measure of licensing small stills in Scotland bad been tried in those j>art� of tb|t country which frere addicted rtO lltat-tfwIillatioVttri oa'tifeBral yenriii ^hffeii'tFw&stried, vu. between; trie years -a8l6 ^nd 1,816=:It: iiicreaserd die retenue j con.id^fij^j.

This state iif-tho laws requires the maintenance of a large army to en for re them, of which army the Excise officers have Ihe command as much as any General or Magistrate in the country. The expense of Ibis army is also a cause of the diminution pf Ihe Irish revenue. The Hon. Member concluded by stating, that the Irish hail a strong claim on Ihe compassion of the House, especially the northern, provinces, the inhabitants of which are valuable from ibeir industry, and bad once proved themselves tl)u bulwarks of our Constitution. The Petition was then received, and ordered tpbe printed. Mr. TENNYSON gave notice of a motion on Wednesday the 9th May, to enable proprietors and occupiers of laud to kill preserve game on waste lauds adjoining to their estates. Mr. H. G. BENNETT gave notice, that on Ihe 9th May be would move certain Resolutions for extending the elective franchise to towns containing a large population. FEES ON RECOGNIZANCES. Mr. H. G. BENNETT presented a Petition from John Wbitaker and William Lerson, complaining of treatment they had suffered in consequence of having given recogui-zauces in Ihe Office of the Clerk of the Peace for Ibe County uf Middlesex, in the month of September 1820-Ordered 10 he printed. He then moved for returns of all fees taken at the Office of the Clerk uf the Peace for Ihe County of Middlesex, or by Officers connect!d with that Office, under the head of Recognizances, for the last three years, distinguishing such recognizances as have been forfeited or made void by the parlies being brought up for judgment - also, for an account of fees received during the same period 011 the enrollment of ^Benefit Societies.-Ordered. Lord W. BENT1NCK gave notice of a motion 011 the 8th May for certain papers respecting the affairs of Sicily. Sir H. PARNELL presented � Petition from certain persons Called Separatists, ill the City of Cork, praying to be allowed lo give their affirmation instead of taking oaths. -Ordered to he printed. Mr. B. WiLBRAHAM presented a Petition from certain Inhabitants of Mary-le-boue against the Metropolis Kuads Bill. FINESFORCONTEM.PT... -Mr. Hi)imo.ijsE prc;c-iiied a I'ettlionfioma number of respectable Inhabitants of London and-West-luinater, compluining of the rejection by the House of th�Petilioii of Thomas Davi�on some time back, and also of the assumption by Judges of a power tu fine persons upon trial, while making their defence. Understanding I hut the Chairman of the Quaiter Sessions- for the County of Surrey had expressed himself hurt by on observation which he (Vlr. Hobhouse) had made on a former evening, when he presented ihe Petition from Davison, which he conceived to have charged him with an interference in, or packing of Juries at Ihe Sessions, he should take that opportunity of statittg that he had on that occasion only, said, that on threatening in fine Mr. M'Creery lor speaking lo him iu Court, the Chairman had assumed a power which he (Vlr. Hobhouse) .on his conscience believed he did not possess. In the absence of the Solicitor-General he should uot detain the House by any obser-vaiion3 on the right of Courts to tine for contempt, but it was Jjs intention shortly to make a substantive motion on the tubject. Mr. H. Sumner said, he wat obliged to ihe Hon. Member for Westminster for giving him the opportunity of 4-jtplainnig the conduct of the Chairman oftliu Quarter Sessions. The Hon. Membtr theu proceeded to rend a letter froin the Chairman, giving a very full statement of what ui'�urted between him and Mr. M'Creery, one of the jurors in attendance at the Sessions ; but we regret that the low tone and .rapid enunciation with" which the Hon. Member read the letter, prevented us from accurately possessing ourselves uf its purport, lie concluded with a wjirm panegyric on the character of the Chairman, and assured the House of hts et.. tire belief that that Hon. Magistrate was incapable of any act unbecoming his situation. Mr. S. VV out ley, on t tie motion for the Petition being laid on the table, said, he should be sorry to object to the motion, but he could not consent thai it should go abroad as the opinion of that House, that Judges, or Chairmen of Quarter Sessions, had not the power to fine persons for contempt of Couri, or interrupting the proceeding*. Mr. Hobhouse said, the Petition did not question the po.wer as to '.third persons, but the right lo fine persons on their defei.ee. Mr. M. A. Taylor said, it was clear and un-quejiiooable 'hat by law auy Judge hud the power vA^-wV'1-.' fi|ie and imprisonment any person who u*#i .i3iij[ tf'Sturbanee, Or interrupted the pioceed-ilM& of ihe Court by any noise or any disorderly '(ijjfcwy.flt-of any kiud whatsoever, ���'-i.jj agijeaiit Onflow s tid, the power to punish fera* contempt was by luw allowed to every Court of Record, from the highest to the lowest, and he believed that was the first lime of its being culled in question. Mr. DenMAN said, he did not mean to deny that every Court had the power by law to puuish persons who interrupted the proceedings. Hut he only questioned the power to fine summarily, because it might happen that the circumstances of the party rendered hitn unable 10 pay the jine ordered. He had 110 doubt of the power to commit for contempt, and afterwards, when the party should be brought up before the Court and examined, to fine him according 10 his ability. �"� The Petition wag ordered tu be printed. Mr. Ltjshingtou brought up a return shewing the amount of advertisement duties paid in the course of .one year into the Treasury by Sunday Newspapers published jn London, Sir R. Wilson rnuved for an account of .all persons holding two pjaces, or receiving two pep-sioiis for two ^liferent offices, ili the naval, military; and civil establishment*,.distinguishing the allowances of each Rind. and. describing ihe service performed for which' such uliowauces had been granted. --Or tiered.. . Lord Nu<3E&T gnve. notice of a motion for the 7th May',, for an Inquiry into the geueial, Adm.ini-srraiiou of Justice in the Coiins of tl/e 'Li'jnd;of Tbliago; ' . ' Mr. Hi;me moved for.a return of the amotint of �U as-essmeiits of land tax wg.ned by the Com-innssioiiers 'atiri' delivered to the Collector-; iu the Counties of Lbndbn.u'nd Middlesex, together with the totalt amount of tlje .land tax.ieceived by the ^Co.Hec!or�, she.wiu e Advocate-Genera I and his Deputies, at head-quarter* in Loudon, Edinburgh; and Dublin, distinguishing those attended by the Judge Advocate-General, and those attended by his Duputies, in Edinburgh and Dublin. Mr. Beckett had no objection to the returns being made, hb he would then have Uu opportunity of meeting the subject fully. He would only remark, that the motion staled the subject incorrectly. The Deputy Judge-Advocate iuT Scotland wag an officer appointed by Government, arid was not his (Mr. Beckett'o) Deputy, as life motion implied. Mr. Hume said, that lie intended to have inserted the wotds "the Deputies.'' The Lotto A�yotATE said, that the Deputy in Scotland attended other' CoUrts-tivartiul besides  those at head-quarters. The ttlotion ought, in fairness, to comprise the tfhole of the cases. Mr. Hume, at the suggestion of the Speaker, 'substituted England. Ireland, and Scotland, foe the names of the chief cities. The papers were then ordered. Mr. R. Martin moved, that the Petitions from, persons holding situations iu Courts of Justice in Ireland, ordered by the Hout-e to be abolished, be referred 10 a Select Committee to examine the matter thereof, and report their observations to the House. Mr. Wakre hoped that the Committee would use their Inactions with severity, for it would be a dange'rous precedent to encourage Petitions and hopes of reeompence for the loss of offices which the Government found it necessary to abolish. . Mr. R. Martin had not made up his mind on ihe merits of any of the Petitions. He only wished for a Committee to examine into I hem. The Committee was theu appointed, and on ihe motion of Mr. Martin the naiua of Mr. VVarre wus added to the list. The Chancellor of the Exchequer rose to move, according to annual custom, that the House on its rising do adjourn to Monday se'ntiighr. A longer delay would have been desirable, but the public business had not progressed, with sufficient rapidity, and it was likely to detain them till late iu the season, besides which, by adjourning beyond that periodj they would lose two supply data.
