   London Pues Occurrences (Newspaper) - November 24, 1847, London, Middlesex                                �oi. XLVI. PlJE's O CCURR RNCES.

K'f I wert ro have a greater Regard for Popularity than for m� Duty as * Member Ot this Ho-.iff, I (hov\d certiinly join thole who oppoic the Bill now before us> . bur while I have the Honour of a Seat m Aff.mbly, i ih*n always defpife courting* TititDt tltcem among the Vulgar, when I think incontinent with the general and lading intei-ofmy Country.  I believe, it will not be delta t in al'ticft every Commodity we deal m, !,e ait underlolJ at Foreign Mai kets, by the French, , iuT,e other ot our Neighbouis upon the Con-�nJ i�        1 believe, be allowed, that the t'lr'rv confluence of this muft at la ft be, the R.inof oui Foreign Commerce, ifnot pre* i,y a fe; mod penurioufly, bar and will Work to:  'he Jeaft Wages, or icll the leaJr Profit-.  (jenrler.en may talk ot efta-|ili(hrng proper Regulations.^nd introducing good ,o(ioms, for coirtcting this Extravagance; but pity will rind it no ealy Matter to alter the Tem-ier of a whole People.   We have many and Uriel iws tor letting nil idle Peep'e to Work, and for uniting the Wages ot StrVoi.cs in almolt all Sorts ttBulinels; but tne Fxecution of thole Laws has Iways been found in-practicable ; and, I believe, f we had ever endeavoured  to have put  them ricfly in Execution, we fhould have ruined infold of improving our Manufactures.   Trade hates "onftraint ot every Kind, and will always fly [roma Country where they attempt to lay it in peters. There is no way of making People work, but by rendering it inapoffible for them to fabfift cichouc working; theie is no way of making Peo-),e �oik for (mall Wages, but by Multiplying the lumber of Workmen; there js no way oi' cot-jetting the Extravagance of a People, no more tj�n that of a private Mao, but by depriving tstmot the Means of being eirravaganr, and this l\Sl�,y t5bC*u,!Ijr.do by n"� one a great LNomber ot Rivals in their Bufinefs; for it will tnenbe impoflible tor them to get higher Wages or ft Prtht?i tban are txrrty lufneient for their 5rtlittence; Jtany one asks higher Wages tiwnhis Kinu, no one will employ him; if he asks higher 'one wrjii buy of him; and a Multitude in the fame way of Buftoefa, will always, by Dt-Itees, under-work and under fell one another, till their Wages or Profi tt be brought Jo low a* to afford but a bare Sublicence, according to the Rank whith (uch Men hold among Mankind ro fce-{nerai. Whether ourPeopk herein England live bet* iter; that is. more extravagantly, that the Peoptt cfe-jiKl Rank-do in atvy other Country; is* Fa�, Sir, that cannot admk ot any Prootj therefore I �vwy Gentleman mulVjadge according to what he r t�Wmftlr heard a"nd obierwd s but this is�rtam, ' thir It either is'fo, or is not fo.

Befides, it is a great Dilt-ourag roeni to Foreign Journeymen to come to a Coun/ry where they can nev^r propofe to be Ma ft is, let their Skill and Succtfs be never lo great, without puling themfelves ro the Lxpen>.e of a Naturalization Bill, or of Letters of D^niracion. Remove thele Impedimcrns, Sir, and if the Peo* pie ot this Country live bttttt th�n ?eople of the fame Rank do in any other Country, the certain conltquence will be, tbat many Foreign Tradesmen, ooth M fters and Journeymen, will come to leuie in this Country. Thole who like good living will come over here, b:caulc they eiieil afteirwards bctwetntlie Haufesoi Vorjt,*t>d Lm-' jSafter. thefe Foteigncrf could- have no!grea.t Con-* sero, and'eomcgnendy thefe Wars could not jprevent thxir conftngi.to lettlfi in a Country jwhere they -met witt* lo^mu*;h �aeouragen�ehr. from all which! mult concIudc,,*Sir, that jt the 'Peopk of dtoglahd live better, that is, more ex-'travagantly, than cbc People or cjjiaI junlt in any neirh'-ioiirir.g Country, rfiis Bill will l^e of great Service t-� us, ar.J m;y be a Me^ns of rerif-v?n; lever.iI Branches of our foreign Commerce, which are n^w lo(*, or very mnc+i in Decay.
