Lord MALMESBURY rose for Ihe'parpose of moving for ilcturns relating to the importation of Foreign Wool. He could not forbear calling the attention of the Honse to the distress now existing among the wool growers, many of whom had as much as three years slock in hand, and the vakie of wool had lately decreased very much from ltW. w8d. a pound. He conceived the House would agree with him In thinking that corn aod wool were most closely connected, and that they almost depended upon each other-as ldng|as the protection duty remained at 6d, the in wool derived an advauiage from it, but the moment it fefl, great distress fallowed. Upon reading Mr. Jacob's Report, It would appear (hat great exertions were making in Gennaetjr to hare large quaiirities of wool grown there lor tho  purpose-ef exportation. At the time when the duty was lowered from 6d to a halfpenny, a great boon war expected to be granted, which turned out to be a permission to the growers to export their long wool. That, howcver.they had been only "bio to do in very small quantities. Tho Noble Lord then moved for a Return of Foreign Wool imported from the year 1800 to Ib�2, distinguishing the countries from which it had come; also a Return of the Value of the Wool imported from 1810 to 1820, and an account of the Quantity if British LongWool exported from 1821 to IBSi6. Lord BEXLEY said it had been considered a policy to reduce the duty on foreign wool for the purpose of benefiting the manufacturers, and there was no doubt that class had derived great 'benefit from its effects. He abstained from then entering into the question. \Vhen the subject was regularly before the House, there would be ample time for so doing. The Duke ol RICHMOND disapproved of tbe system of experiments which had of late been adopted. It was evident that in the present instance theexperiment bad failed, though an attempt n as made to gloss over the event. He wished that tbe Noble Earl who had moved for the Returns would call the serious attention of their Lordships to that important subject. It was tiase to shield tbe Flock masters of fcngland from speculative tbroriee Lord KING contended, that if the high duty had been continued, and the importation of wool consequently diminished, the result would only have been to increase the d.stre.s of manufaetorcre. It was true that a quantity of �oul remained on'therfiands of RritUh farmers, but tbe great point to be ascertained .wasy' Whether (he import of foreign wool continued. Earl DARN LEY knew that Wool growers laboured under great grievairces, aplf had nt least mo years' growth of wool upon theirhanuV. for Wb1eb they could not find a market. This was a stale of things which ought not lo exist. Hecer- i lainly wished to bold an eqoal balance between the two great interests of agricalinre and manufactures; but manufacturers ought to Enow-thht the depression of tbeir best cuv toraers could possibly do them no good. The Marquis of SALISBURY considered those interest as the same, and that the onettught not to be sacrificed to the other. H� also complained that whilst agriculturists had twi years'growth of wool upon their hands, foreign wool cunti nucd In pour in ; and that instead of taking manufactures in return, foreigners took nothing but money ; so that the Wool growers were deeply injured and annulacturers were not benefited. Tbe Dake of BUCKINGHAM regretted tb&t their Lord ships should be deprived of all mean* of discussing the Corn Laws, in consequence of what had taken place,'whilst resolu. tions were carrying into effect in another place, because, when the subject should come before them in the shape of a Bill, it was well known that if they altered the amount of duty, tbe Bill would altogether be lost. He, therefore, hoped thai before the measure reached them in that form some data would be supplied to enable them to discuss it properly. A lo the wool trade, the fact that two years.' growth was on tbe hands of the woolgrowers, was is the teeth of the author of the measure which had thrown that trade open, for he bad attempted lo justify it in a pamphlet, on the ground that il would procure British wool (jrorrere a belter market. The Karl or WESTMORLAND contended, that although his NobleFriend, whose illness they all deplored, bad intended to propose Resolutions to tbe House, in order to explain hii plan for regulating the Corn Laws, yet that mode was irre' gular. No resolutions on such a-subject had erer been pro. posed to their Lordships, so that whatever might be the difficulties of their situation, still they were only those which they bad always had to encounter, when the subject ot the Corn Laws had became the object of legislation. Lord ELI.KNBOROUGU said, that the House bad been obliged to acquiesce in the withdrawal of the Resolutions, not so much an account ot the irregularity of the course, as be-causethey thought that no Noble Peeroo the uther side would be able to make ifac statement promised-By tbe Noble Earl at the head of the Treasury. Lord REDESDALE eoutended, that not only in the article of wool, but in Ihe depressed jvices of tallow, bides, and skins, and cheese, were the agriculturists affected, in corwe- aueuce of foreign importation. He considered the price of 9s. now proposed aa a maximum, Which it wss intended to establish, and he maintained that Ihe fixing or a maximum price was most injurious to tbe branch of trade to which it applied. This bad been tried in the reign of Edward 111. bui had only lasted a year, the whole country having cried out against Ihe measure. Corn was of all commodities that on which a maximum shuuid not be established, as its price must vary with the nature of the crops, and the result of a maximum would be that farmers would lose both in good and bad seasons. In a short lirao he should venture tu submit n set of Resolutions to their Lordships on that subject, to induce them to apply their minds to the consideration of each proposition, Jo order to see whether the effect of a maximum would not be to discourage and injure the corn trade. At the present moment farmers could not borrow money unless ihvj had lauded property. In tact, the anbjectrerpiired more consrde ration than his Majesty's Ministers seemed to have given it; for they bad never entered into a serious inquiry. With respect lo Ihe distresses of the labouring manufacturers, they did not arise from the price of corn, which was at present below a remunerating one, but from Ihe exlravogaul prufits which master m.nulaclurera and merchants expected. But, fursootb, they must lire in Portland place or Grosvcuor square ; and whereas their velvet capped aud square toed grandfathers lived in the city With their Clerks, and surrounded with their wareboases, they mast only go to the city to inspect what was going on,' and to sign their names to letter* written for them abottt they scarcely knew what, and leaving all to their clerks, at the bead of whom tbey must place a confidential person lo act'for them. Tbe Earl or MALMESBURY stated, that be did not stand up for the preseol Cora Laws In toto, but maintained the principle on which they were founded. As long as that principle was upholdsn he would be willing to meet his Majesty's Ministers and to modify the Corn Law., and even alter their machinery to any extent. He rejoiced that the Noble aod Learned Lord intended to submit a set ol Resolutions to the House, as it woold enable their Lordships to express tbeir opiuioos before the subject reached them in the shape of a Bill Irom the other House. It was important that their sentiments should be well kuown, previously to the Bill passing in another place. Lord ELLEN BOROUGH lamented, that those Resolu-(ions had not been presented three weeks ago. Time bad been lost, aud it was now loo late, for the Houso uf Commons stood pledged lo a particular duty. Lord BEXLEY said, that if hU Noble Friend framed his Resolutions on toe principle* which be had laid down, it appeared to him that those principles if carried into effect, wuuld exclude foreign commerce altogether. The Mo'.ion was (ben put and agreed lo. The Marcni* or Exarsa presented a Petition from a parish in the county of Rutland, against the Catholic Claims.-Laid on the table. BILLS. Sir A. Gram, and others, from the Commons, brought up Ihe Ounce Thread Bill and several private Bills, which were read a first time.-Adjourned. HOUSE OI? COMMONS. TREGONY ELECTION.

Mr. S. RICE said, he had to call the attention of ihe House to a matter teaching its privileges and affecting the exercise of its most important functions in the judicial capacity. Hs-fore entering into the case, he should move that the usual Sessional lioolutions relative lo ihe attendance of witnesses before the House be read. The Clerk having read the Keso-luliortu, the Hon. Member proceeded lo slate, thnt he In Id in his nana' a Petiiioo from a Gentleman of whom be knew no thing, coKiplaiaiag of the conduct of another Genllcman of whom be kvew nothing, and slating facts ol which he knew nothing beyo\id the communications which had been made to hint by the pae.'ies. These Gcntlemeu were in attendance lo be examined by the House upon lire subject of the Galw;\y Election. The tt>"" witnesses, Mr. Lambert and the Hon. Martin Ffrench, mo,' in tho lobby of ihe House, where the following occurrence? took place, as slated in Ibe Petition.- Tho*. Lambert, Esq., ft f Cregclare, in the eoonty of Galway, brother to James Stantol, Lambert, Esq- who had petitioned the House agaiust the re\'"rn ol Richard Martiu, Ksq. tor that county, slated in the Pe-v ilio" 'hat ever since the ale election for Gal nay he hail bes � a delicate stale of health; but that, havin; received a �un\ �n'"" fmm ll" Speaker of that Hon. House to alien,I ihe Ejection Committee, he had raise to Loudon for that purpose, -.''hat while waiting in ihe lobby of that House on Tuesday last, .,,e w,vi '"suited by Ihe Hon, Martin Ffrench, a principal sup). �"�' "nd partisan of Mr. Martin at the late Election, a ivitucs.' suinmoucd before ihe Election Committee, and nlso a Mngsli �,c for the County of Galway. The Petitioner staled thru lie g a,e nn provocation for the insult, and prayvd the House lo k f"rd him such protection as it should ihink fit. The Hon. Member did not mean to say, that the case came directly within lDe resolution of ihe House, because it did not appear that .any thing had been done todelcr ihe wilr.css from giving his e.v'dencr, ur In obstruct him therein. But whether it came witx '" ''le resolutions or nut, he held n to be strict Parliamentary .'aw, that the House had the power lo grant protection lo ivimesves while in attendance in obedience to iia summons. He kiicV nothing ol the parlies, but the Petition had been put luto hi hands, and in presenting it he only discharged the common duty of a Member of Parliament, He presented it not with tbe intention of moving any proceedings against the parlies, because he trusted thai the declaration of the powers of ihe House to punish any delinquent, if a cise of delinquency should be made nut, would prevent the recurrence oi any such matters for the future. The House unquestionably had this power, and it wad necessary that it should he known, m order tu preserve (be peaceable and decorous progress ot election inquiries ; and particularly, he ivas sorry to say, in eases of iri�U elections. Without such n power the House would be unable lo mstnlain the proper exercise of its judicial fuu> -tions. Therefore when he said he should not tolloiv up the Pelilioil by any ulterior motion, he begged lo be underalooi' as not doubting the power of the House to lake steps for pu nisliing the outrage which had been committed uiiou oneol its tritnerses. If tt should be the opinion of the House that any such steps ought to be taken, he should be ready to concur in any thing which was proposed. The Petition waa then read. Mr. WYNN thought it impossible that the House could stop here, after such a Petition had been presented. The witnesses who attended at their summons must be protected, or there was an end of their power to conduct judicial inq&i. ries. it would be in the recollection of only a few years ago or person was brought lo the bar for insulting a witneis. The uecessary course appeared to bun to move that the party complained ot be biought lo tbe bar tomorrow. After some conversation in an under tone across the iDbU, it Was determined that the Petitioner should uowbe called in to substantiate the eonleals ot the Petition. The Sergeant was accordingly ordered lo sec if Mr. Lasi bert was in alteudaocc. and to bring him betore the House. Mr. LAMBBaT was brought in and examined by tin HrkAxsn. What is your name f-Thomas Lambert. Will you look at that Petition, and state whether it is subscribed with yuur name?-L is. Stale to the Hou'-e, slowly and dinlinctly, what occurrences you complain of in that Pettiion.^-On Tuesday last I was in attendance lo be examined upon thdGalway ElectionPetiiiou, having hceu summoned by Mr. Martin. When 1 had been about five minutes in the lobby ol the House of Common*, Mr. Flrench accosted me, and said, " Ah, Lambert, how do you do ? I am glsd to sec you." He then held out his hand as if to shake hands with me. In conaequence of his conduct when 1 was upon my trial, and my life was at sukc, I refused to shake bonds, nnd mailt him a low bon. \ forgot to state that a friend of mine, Mr. Uagoi, and iwo other Gentlemen, one of them, Mr. tlutler, a Iriend of Kfrencb's, were present. As soon as 1 bowed, Mr. Ffrench fell into a violent rage; so much so thnt his countenance was distorted.- He said, " 1 deserve it, for having disgraced myself by contaminating my hand in pulling il out to shake hands with such a rascal." J answered, " Thank you ; I'm much obliged tu you." I begged Mr. Bagot and Mr. Butler to take notice ot what had passed. A Gentleman who had seen it. came up and asked if Mr. Kfreoch was mad. Mr.Ffrench held up his band in a threatening way. Whether be meant to strike me or not, 1 cannot say. But if he had done so I should not have retaliated. The next morning I received a letter from Sir H. Birnie, and he required (hat 1 should enter into recognisances in keep the peace, i tojo him that was not necessary, and pledged my word and honour that 1 would do nothing further in the business. Examined byMr.S. Rics.-Are you attenJing this House in consequence of the summons of the Speaker f - I am, f have it in my pocket. Are you aware that Mr. Ffrench is also attending in consequence of a similar summons ?-1 believe he 15. He is a par-tieuinr friend of Mr. Martin's. By a Mehbkb.-At what distance was Mr. Ffrench from the witness when be held up his hand :-As near as that Gentleman (pointing tu a Member.) The witness was then ordered 10 withdraw. Mr. WYNN said, he had not the least doubt but that afier such a case being stated to the Huuse, the only course was u> order the offending parly 10 be called before tbent. Mr. HOUHOUSE said, that wiih all deference to the experience of the Right Hoi., Gentleman, he did not think this wus a case which called for such a step as bringing Ihe party to Ihe bar. No blow had been struck ; no positive ub-struc-ion ol the witness had taken place ; and it was evident thai he affair grew out of some private quarrel existing between the parties before. Aud, indeed, whatever had taken place was the fault of Ihe Petitioner in refusing an offer of courtesy wbich was meant in friendship. Mr, J.GRATTAN made an observation, which was inaudible. A MEMBER said tbere appeared 10 have been not the smallest reference to Ihe business in which the panics had been eummoned before the House, and he thought there was no reason whatever for noticing the Petition. The circumstances might have occurred a hundred miles off, for any thing which connected them with the business of the House. SirJ.YORREsaid, that the question appeared to him to be whether or not, within ihe precincts of that Houso, suVh scenes as bad been described by the witness should be tolerated. He agreed with the Honourable Member for West-miustcr, that (be Petitioner was the first tu provoke the disturbance, but ai Ihe same time he thooghi it the duty of the House lo protect iis witnesses from violence. Mr.ABERCROMBYsaid, no one could doubt the uecetuily or the power of the House to protect its witnesses ; but tqev. he thought they only ou;lit 10 inierfere in cases of flagrant outrage. The civil power had already done every thing (hat was required, and the House would be wasting its time if it uffered itself to be led into u"ncu*stun* upon quarrels between t bese parties. Mr. LITTLETON said, he so entirely coucurred with lie Hon. Fiiend who spoke last, that he really thought iheHuuac should take 110 farther notice of the matter. Tbe police had already interfered �u keep the peace, and tarher he ibougui nothing was necessary. Mr. S. RICE said he could not agree iu the propos t ons br had heard from Gentlemen who bad objected 10 the coors,-reeommended by his Right Hon. Krietid. Such doctrines, hi thought, cuuld not be maintained without endangering thP'�iB' befbr. th. � breach of privilege had been commuted. Now und. those -,reum,t.nce. he thought the proper course ; , unities lo the bar. and say lo theu^-" We care not wuo bot" r wron.'-lbis is a privileged place-and when you '� "gut ,. ' ,ca,c J0lr quarrels behind you, and coo- come here J*. ,llh an aui,i,on oi all lormer differences, duct ynurselvev . ,hoUld certainly not have advised the (Hear, hear.J He ,D, but now thai the complaint was presenting such a Petith. '  11 was necessary for them to let before the House, he thougu-  should be protected. The their witnesses know ihal the, lies of these witnesses House roust recollect thnt large bt.. the first tiase, after were here brought together, perhaps fo, �nd for purpose, all ihe heals and animosities of an elect/'eo, > "J"' calculated to renew ot mciea,e all such l"e*lii^, ' ,u ,he," llierefure, necessary for the preservation uf orde. H . e judicial proceedings, thii those who came there wit. ' desire of peace sln.uld have protection ; and that those wu� quarrel should be told that the; must seek other placss d.'an (he avenues of that House, a, the scene of their contention.'. He thought these ends would be best attained by having'i-olh parties before the House. Mr. HOBHOUSE explained, and added, that il appeared to him a considerable punishment to be admonished by the House, Mr. Alderman WAITHMAN said, that he did not believe a more contemptible case had ever been brought forward. Or. PHIL Li MORE ivai of upinion that it MroafcJ be so ia-jusuce tu ilie party accutcd nyc to itiffuire (further into tti� m Alter. Two wiiness** had bce.i summoned (o a lien d a Cjninnitre uf that House; and a charge had been made  H ^ in si oue ot them for misconduct, and it was but n^bt that the pan* should be heard in his defence. No tneonvtuitencc could result frum the course proposed bj his Right Hon. Kricnii (Mr. \Vynu)t and therefore be should support bis attOt.Utl. Mr. Airman WAITHMAN said, that if the House whbed to hare its authority rvapecud, it should be cautious not to use it on slight and unworthy occasiork,. He confessed that when he heard the Petition introduced, the charge appeared! of a grave and .eriuud nature, but the allegations bad not beeu sutsiai'ned-the examination at the bar, had far from supported them. He (hou^ht, therefore, (hat the subject had already occupied more at the time of tbe House than it ought to hare done, and that no farther proceedings thonld be entered into. Mi sunders landtags and �(\uabb.e� were ol very frequent occurrence among persons attending Election Committees, aod it was best to leave such as thai before tba-Home unnoticed, Sir BOUGHT WILSON �aid that he looked upon th* lut remark vrhtcb bed fell frum the Hod. Alderman as affording the" -rvry s^rootfesl argument why the House should proceed fa the inquiry. Dispute* and quarrels were freqwal among peivoue attending Election Committees; and therefor* it became that House to take the first opportunity of showing tbe public that persons wbo were summoned to attend its Commit lees should be protected from insult by it* authority while within its pre. cmcts. (Hear.) lie cared very little as to the merits of tbe p-irtfcu.arcase before the House, in his estimation they had JmJe or aothwg lo do with the question, which was simply this t-An offence f whether great or tmaW) bad been cum-intiled against the authority of that House, and was the Huu.e not in duty bound tu take cognizance of it.
