Tfie Earl of LAUDERDALE expressed a hope that Uie Noble Earl would uot object, when tiiis Bill'was cointnilled, thut the Petitions which hud beetj Breseoled a^aiiist it by inditriduals should be referred lo the Cotomiltee. 'Tfie^Eailof Liverpool did not see ^ny objec-tiptVHo'ihe jiropoisitiQn.

Lord .HoLLANsit said he was aware this was not the ijme for objeciidg to the ineaj'are. He rose tnerely for the purpose of projesting against the argaiuent of the Noble Earl (Liverpool), that because, ail inquiry liad been made i^lsewlteri-, their Loid^hipswtirjeexcluded from going iutu an inquiry on the l^ubjepl, llie Billwas then read a second time, and ordered;';c�iiimilled oti XVediiesday.

The^jussiiOK^ wosiihousjht, set at rest ; but siui?^,' ilj^ilji's character ast be made out by the usrluliiess pf it. He was informed by. tlie Admiral on the stalion tliitt a fi.^hiiig bout Could into the harbourw-i'thuut being dnigt,'ed by the iiihahitaiAs. 'i-heri* was iitiuliier cnD^ideru-lion, the expense timt it. wotttd have been nei-e.-saj-y for t-lii> coniiUy lo have gone to in fortifyiiit; the plnce,.wliich il retained by this country mii>t be linnieeiidii)g the giving of certain privileges to I lie inhabilanls ; oil tiie ceding of the plnue a c'l'ii-veiiliou was enteied'iiilo, and lliose of the inliubi-lants who did i>'it wisji to rftn-iin were to be allowed a conijiensulion for their-proprrty, uml the COmpUjiiit wasi tiiiil ihe Lord Migh CotKinissioner did nut think proper to.grant the compensation ac-oordiug to the-"elf-estiinaleof every iiidiviiluul lhat claimed. Sir, Thomas MAiitlundapjiointed three (jf the Nobles of Corfu,and an eminent land surveyor, to inquire and report what coaippiisulion the claim-ants were entillt'd lo, and according 10 lliut rejiurt they were paid. It had been said lhat the game money - whs nqt p^iid to the Parga-niotes which ii'ad lieen received, and that great delay had: taken place in the diitribution. As lo the first objection, the fact was, that although a (liHVrent coin was paid, it wa� of tUe same value as lhat received. As to the charjfe of delay, the inolant the money was, received, - Sir T. Miiilland named three Co^i�mi��iotitr?^li^. �li�tribut5e it ; but viiripiis persons-�a,OTe;'S|)y'�^Tdi3 have -uwtgagea ^n>vdftfeRhfe>^o'^Vj?rtti& ^Keiii agiiiii haviiig claims against t&pse .mortgagee*, so lhat in a shprt space of time 7OO claims of that tialure - were preferred.- His Lordship said he was persnaded that, whatc^ver imprirssiotis migiit be made on the public mind here, thsit on the spot a very different account would be given of the transactions. Another Kroiiiid of objection had been, that under the Treaty of Paris the people of Parga were bound to pay for the 3,000 troops whichthey might raise; but that was entirely a mistake, the Treaty of Paris said nb sijch thing. A convention was to he Diade with the (leople on thiR subjeet, but Sir Thomas M:jil-land thought, and iii' his opinion he thought correctly, thiit it would be improper m have put that Treaty in force ut that time. - Under his management the revenue of the lonim Islands has been considerhbly improved,-as would appear by the payments which had been made from it of the whole military Stafirin the iVledilerranean ; and under the circiiinstance of that improving revenue. Sir Thomas .Mait^tid iiud thoutilit it imprudent to push the Convent inn into efi'ect, until they could form a judgment of what the revenue was likely 10 be. TliC'tiext charge against Sir Thomas .\Iaitliind was, that he had imposed an onecoos system of laxnlian on the people uf those i^^lands; but the fact was, that he hatf only imposed one lax-lliiit ini oil-which was far fiom being i>p-prebsive or burdensome, as the increa.'-e in the pro-iluce would teslify. U had been said that through the medium of the Senate taxes liad been impu.ved. Il was perfectly true that the Senate had imiiosed a tax upon currants, biif'if siiiy person looked at the Kpeech of Sir Thos. Maiiland on opening tht'Session, in winch he descanted in tbeislroiigest terms on their duties as reprejeulattves, they would be satisfied he was not u man to be- arraigned in that iitanner. Another-charge was, that he hud interfered with the fre^doiil of condnterce. This arose from an extensive combiuafion 16 monopolise and raise the price of corn, which S�.r Thomas IVIaillaiid hud counteracted, by purchasing grain at, the public .expense ut Cephaluiiin,,btilbccupaiibn, aud do: dectaraiioii-hud -ever beenitaide by any of ptjr cifTicer9:t0 8*nc|iothe^sai ih? Frenchoui, and we drove the Freijch out of Parga and occupied it iu.-the same way. Sup-liosing :tluit we had enheredrinto a treaty,' eiiab'Iing the Parganiotes to.scll iheir 'propertj', in tjiree, four, or five years, which we might bave done, yet it would not have been of any advantage to the Par-gsiniiites, as they could not have found unypurchaser but Ali Pacha, who would certainly .not have given such terms as had been obtained for them. He (E^irl Balliurst) was s:iti8fied, that no person ac-q'lainled with the small means of defence possessed by these people, would say thut they might have been left to defend themselves by their proper means; but in point of fact, that proposition was made lo them, and they declined it without the slightest hesitation: iMotion agreed to. Lord Ekskine moved the second readin^of Tomkiiis's Picture Lottery Bill. After a few words from the Eat! of LabdeRdale, e.vpressiiig his objeciion to these sett of Bills pass-int^ us a mutter of course, the motion was agreed to, aud the Bill read a second time accordingly. MARRIAGE ACT AMENDMENT BILL. Lord ELLB.N30R0UGH mo*ed the Order of the D.iy for the House going info a Committee on the iMiirrittge Act Amendraeut Bill. The Lord Chancellor left the Woolsack, and said, if the clauses to which he had objected Were expuuged, he should, aftprd it his-sdpport. Lord RedEsDALB said, that if the Bill was tb be retrospective, no consideration should iuduce him to Support it, and their Lordships would consider that in giving it thut effect, the decisions of Courts of Justice wfioJiad acted upon it wou!d;.b.eL,r^ver.*ed if the Bdl were^sswt, ' The Earl of LivgHPOOl. had oa..di^ttlty ia Hcknowledging iliat tlie law-of-'^wwrriuge wanted alleratiori, and that in any alt^ratioD to take place he siiould look to facilitating, rather than obstrn-rt-ing ; but he could not go the length of saying lhat it onght to be retrospective; he considered that what was past should be left as it was. The law might act hardly in some cases, but it could uot act unjustly. Lord Holland approved of going intp a Committee, and thuughl the law as it now stood was as liud as it Could be, and hoped the House would not be content with ledvliii{ it ut the �vor�t. The Lord Chancellor objected strongly to the clause which aulliorii-ed the dissolution of mar-riageswhere theb-annshad been irregu^ar, as.leading lo (profligacy and corruption of morale. He had turned the subject in his mind, and wished a power could be given to enable u Court to decide where parlies had iheant to conform to the laws, that such marriage should be valid, but he doubted if such discretion could be gr.inted to any Court of Law. The Earl of Westmorland considered that no title to properly was secure under the existing law, and hoped in the Comniittee to have the as-,istance of the Noble and Learned Lord in perfecting the �pre.oent measure. The Lord Chancellor said if the measure was retrospective the Noble Lord must not expect his assistance. Lord Holland said the 44th and 4Sth of the late King were retrospective meaaurea, and yet the Nuble and Learned Lord Imd.'given his assistance to those measures. After u few words from the Lord Chancellor the Bill was committed, aud the Report ordered to be taken into consideration un Wednesday next. PENAL LAWS: The Marquis of Lansi>own rose to move the Order of. the Day for the'third reading of the Privately Stealing io Shops, the Capital Felonies Repeal, and the Commutation of Punf�hinent Bills. He said he would not do their Lordships the injustice to im-Jgine that they would desire to retain any extreme degree of severity in the criminal luw, uiiless they were satisfied that some ad-vaulages resulted from it; but if their Lordships saw that for a long time these hiws had been B dead letter, that they had been an ob8trut:tiou to Courts'of Justice, and a meatis of increasing crime, by deterring persons from proseCuliilg, they would feel that they could iiot top soon vxpuiige them from theStaiute Book. The Privately Sieul-iiig in Shops''Bill, to wliich he now particularly adverted, hud Hardly been executed at all for the last seventy years, oti account of its extreme severity; so armed againiil it Were the feelings of Judges, prosecutors, uiid witnesses, thalit was impossible Ipobtain a conviction iindetit, even where it *as desirable for the ends of justice that one should be liad. To Khew how iwiperative the law was, lie would beg leave to read to their Lordshijis a short statement of the resulib, f;om which it appeared that from 1805 to 1818, there had been iti all Eiiglaiid 352 cphvictious aud'Dot one execution. Iu Loudon and Mitidlegex there hud been One execution in a century. On the Northern Circuit, from.1730 down to this time, there hud beeu one execution only. On Ihe Westtrn Citcuitj during the last 50 years, there had breii 3^3'caiivictious and lio executiong. In Liin^asbite/from 1798 to 1818, there had been niae convictiunsiand m execution. > ^toia thee- Crowt|ier.and:Mr. Collins, bath respectuhle ir..f!�-c(f.a,iurii to the operation of a law of uneb severiiyas to h� shocking tt> Ifumunity, He askeft if their Lord' ships were prepared to reject the liirraiiimoos seiiti" roeiits of the House of Cum'iiions.or.ihe,public .h,c larae, and of tImt class particularly interested, "bj refusing the repenlaf the la;w.  The LobS Ceancellop. regretted fhjt tht ia^a period at which'these Bdls were brought in, pre-cloded them from having the advantage of the opinions of the Judges. In ihe st:ig prevent the overflowing of land, looking to thfc great property of that description in LSiifbUiSihi^e," and that the crime could not be cotiitnttird except wilfully and muliciom^lyi to the repeal id" thut-lie must also object." It was proposed Intake uway the capital part of the charge in ilie case of sending threatening letters, where money was mit demanded ; but as the happiness of private familir* would be left exposed to the ui,sault� of olalice, uiiil he could consider few offences of a more seriods Coitiplexiob than that, be must oppdse that also. He objected also to the rtfpeal of iheQ^d Geo. 111. cap. 40, the mannracturers of the North of E^iu-land having always, as he und>-r!>tbod, cbiisiderrd that Act essential for thei r protection. The Marquis of Lansdown consehled tn piit off" the further discussion till to-morrow, with lii--understanding that it shotild take preteUeuce of other business. His Lordship then tiioved fiir copies of the Report bf the Committee of the House of Commons, appointed in >8i9� to inquire into the laws relative to capital pnnishments.
