A CoTiiinittee was appointed on the motion of the Earl of Liverpool, to I'mpiire into the Office of Clerk of Parliament, with a \ie\v tu its better regulation.

These Petitions were severally read, and ordered to lie on the table. Mr. GRATTAN presented a Petition, signed by the Prima:e, Catholic Bishops, and Clergy of Ireland, complaining of the appropriation of certain funds for the education of Catholic children ; one of these funds was that of the Society for the Suppression of Vice, by whom a great si^i of money was laid out annually in the purposes of education. Another fund was, that called The Lord Lieutenant's fund," and there was a Society, called the Kildare-strcet Society, which possesi^ed funds derived from various sources, well known to the bouse, which it expended in the establishment and maintenance of national schools all ov er the kingdom. These schools had considerably increased in number, and were, no doubt, of use. There was, how- Catholics. Such a separation was contrwy to diose principles' which a few years ago had been recommeBded and sanetiqaed by-Parliament, dislinctly recognrriagtfae education of t&e.Pioteik-ants and Catholics together, as the best, means of promotias a permanent onion. It wa� altogether a new view to suppose that conciliation was to be attained by iseparation. Sir JOHN NEWPORT thought that the whole object of edocatian in Ireland onght to have come nnder the serioas consideration of the house. He certainly was not fkiendly to the^separation of the two classes of religion in Ireland; but he coitld not dieny thrtt those who signed this petition had too mtich reason to complain of jhwr having no share whatever in the education of their followers. After a few words from Mr. Dawson, Mr. J. Smith, Mr. Piankett, Mr. Secretary Peel, &c. the petition was ordeied to be printed. Col, WALPOLE moved for a new writ for the Borough of Lynn, in the room of the Marqnis of Tichfleld, deceasod.- Ordered. Sir J.

Mr. Hume i^rescntcd two petitions on the same subject, one from the ProsVut and Magistrates of Montrose, the other from the Deacon and incorporated Traders of Dundee.-Ordered to lie or. the table.' Ml. Brogden brought up the Report of the Committee of Ways and .Means. Mr. Ill ME remarked on the Re�olutions toudiing the hilies on spirits, th^t while they remained as they were, smug- �^se.;. a sctrfnd oling could not be prwented, Mr. HUSKISSON sfeted these resolutioH^'only to relate to the annual duties ; the whole question as to the duties proper to he imposed on English -SpiriU would be open hereafter. Any duties would be on the permanent reduction made in the duties. The resolutions were agreed to, and bills ordered, Tiie resolutions of the Cort^mitlee of \yays and Means (February 16} on Foreign Spiriti% and Sweet*; and on the tax on Pensions, were taken into farther consideration, and agreed to, and bills ordered. v .Mr. HLSKlSSON hoped hi| bon. friend (Mr. Baring) would not object to the report of HJie resolution come to last nisrht on the Customs' Acto being Bi^ougbt up now, that they might be printed. .Mr. BARING intended to give them no further opposition, not that his opinion bad undergone the sTigbtest cuange, but he said the house were decidedly against him. Alter a few remarks from Sir H. Parnell. and Mr. Alderman Wood, the report was brought np and agreed to, and a bill ordered. , Mr. GOULBURN brought in a Bill to amend Ihe Irish Hihes Composition Act, passed last year. He stated that by correcting from time to time Ihe defects of that Act, a complea't and peiitra measure might at length be framed which would Jatislaetorily answer the object which all bad in view. From experience which bad been bad of the operation of the Act last year, he was convinced that the measure was perfectly practhm-ijle. Up to the luiddjc of February the Irish Oovemmpnt had received l,i)Xi ap[iJic8tions from pariehes for the appointment of select vestries. The result of 579 of these applications was known. In '-MO cases the parties had acted on the Bill : in 339 the vestries had adjourned the consideration of the subject, not lor the of abandoning the plan altogether, but to 8lir ijunhns in Ireland that a General Survey and Valuation of the L iiuls m t;i,it part of the Empire should take place." Should this regulai.oii lie alhruied by the lioust, he woiild move that a Coiiiniittee ol Jl members should be appointed to consider ot the Iie.-.t mode oi cll'ecting tlie iaine. .\fler a few words from Sir J. Newport, Mr. Dominick Brown, and Mr. Goulburn, the llesoluiions \\ere agieed to, and a Committee appointed. .Mr. HUSKISSON moved that the house should into a Committee, to consider of the Acts relative to the Silk Duties. The house resolved itself into the commiilee. Mr. HUSKISSON stated that it was ihc iulciilion of Government to allow the manufacturer sending goods into the King's warebouae, before the 2.'>th instant, to take them one again by paying half the duty. Me then moved a resolution allowing a remisaioa of half the duty on all inanulaclored Sill** Goods, which having been warehoused, should be taken out tor home consumption within thirty davs after liie -'Oth of M irch. Mr. Alderman WOOD .said that in llio last live minutes he had learned that some of his constitiu ntH were abuined at the idea that goods could only obtain the alloMruntc by being-passed through the manufacturer's Hands. .Mr. HUSKlsSON said, any person mi;^hl deliver in the goods, and claim the allowance, provided the -oods were in that state on which the allowance ought to be made. Mr. HL'.VIE wished to know buw ihc allowance on stock in hand was to be arranged. Mr. HUSKISSON said it had been arraiiit Secret Assemblies may not apply to their societiis. 'I'he Petition ws* read, and laid on the table. The Earl of Shaftesbury presented a Petition from Te\rkes!jurY, for the abolition of Negro Slavery.-L.ud on the table. The IrLsh Church-Rates Bill, and the .Annual Indemr.ity Bill were read the third time. Lord HOLLAND moved that the Austrian Loan Hill b? committed, with the view of altering the plirase'i),)-y of its preamble. But after making a general attack on the jiolicy of the administration by which Loans were granted to .\iistrui twenty-seven and thirty years ago, on the conduct of the Emperor Francis in coming fonvard to return only ['.irt of what had ceased to be claimed bythis country as � debt siiu e 179^, and on the application or rather the mode in which applicatiou is to be made of certain portions of the sum repaid, tlie Noble Lord omitted to state what alterations he wished to make in the wording of the Bill. The Earl of LIVERPOOL inferred from this omission that the real object of the Noble Baron w;is, to read the hoi se a lecture on the transaction with .Austria, which he bad done in such a manner that all that was unfavourable to that Poyver was put torward, whilst everj- thing rei ouuding to its credit and honor was kept in the back ground. The .Noble iuirl, ably supported by the E^rl of Aberdeen, proved that those Loan-, bad been granted to Austria for objects so purely ftfitish, Mr. Fox had declared at the time thai they oaj^'ht to be given as Subsidies, not as Loans. So far from looking upon them as a debt whkh could be claimed, the Whig .Administration of 1806 had paid demands made by .Austria at that period, without even proposing to use the amount or part of the amount of those loans as a set off. Was not this, de facto, an abandonment ot the debt, and was not much due to the honor and good feeling ui the Emperor and Ids Prime Minister iu being anxious to pay-such a composition as jt was in the power of their country to discharge .> After a good deal of conversation of some interest though of little novelty upou this subject, the motion was negatived without a division and the bill read a third time. The Marquis of Laasflowne brought in a Bill for the Relief ot Dissenters from the operation of the Marriage Act.-Read a first time and ordered to be printed. The Noble Marquis also moved for some Returns relative to the West Indies, which were ordered.-.Adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Leave was obtained to bring iu a Bill to improve the Navitja-tion of the River Medway. Petitions were presented against Negro Slavery from a place in Cornwall by Sir W. Lemon; fro.m Kendal, by Lord Lowiher; from Holbeach and Lownde, by Sir W. Ingleby; fr.)ni Mildi n Hal), Woo^bridge, and Devizesj from Ghmcester, by .Mr. B. Cooper J from Hertford, by Afr. N. Calvert; from M.iidsloce, by Mr. Robarts; from the Parishes of Carlton, Basf well, and Sutton, by Admiral StVheron; aud from Wallsond, by 6ir .\J. W. Ridley; these Petitioos were disposed of in the �suat way, by their beinc; laid on the tabls, and orderctl to be printed. Mr. Warre presented a Petition from the Si'.k 'flirowsters of ;
