What tlie eflipct of thif plan would be upon the market* he �ron7.i not premise; but it was to eagerly sought, jfor'tfij* -morning, that instead of three days being fell|fth^ fur each lOM/. of prinripal monejr ibey b�vt �o sub^i^Vf^,, In 9g^ Capital Slock in Ihe b per Onta. to beaatoaMJed iM made to Ihein from Ihe joint slock of Ibe 5 per CsBIA; ac. curding III Ibe Act of the 26tb of bis Iste Majesty,!^ ' Mr. GttENFEl.L was glad that the Right Hm. Gfiiilrmnn bad ruised this Budget upon tlic''^ffi^ instead uf the 3 per cents. ; but he recotmllntiwd that when such bargains were tube con�rM$ltj�wirinift*a^^ the prrc*iitionsTfid�e^.U|i�biu^'tlt^^ and giving ticket^^^.tb' the,as he stated, of making his plau more distinct-ly understood, repeated bis ca|quia-> tions, and asserted', that ihe result this- year would be a reduction of teu millions and upward* iu-tbtt unfunded'debt. Mr. Maberlt said, he did not rise in c6mm�itt on ihe bargain which the Right Hon. Genlleoiait liiul this day concluded, but to state that h" bi?. lifved the Right Hon. Gentleman's calcubtiona wmild prove incorrect when the accounts for whu-U he (Mr. Rl.) had moved were producetl, anrt submitted to the test of examination, Ii� the fitst place, he thtiught the Right Hon. GeiitleiM^r incorrect in staling that on liie 5Vh January la�t the, uiiliinded debt was only 38 or 39 millions; nuiw he thought it would prove Ip have beeq then, aiid'. to be now, 45,879,258/. Such was his calculaltatty as well as he could niwieretand the account*. nill Hud that on the 5lh January there were an� fiindeil thirty-six millions in Exchequer bill*; S dt Coo,000/. of these wete provided for, hut remaiuKl outstanding. Two millions of Irish Tretisary bills were provided for, bnt h4so outstslandiug, utid tWu millinos more of Irish Treasury bills were not j>r^ viiled for. The Right Hon. Gentleman forgot uU� in his e�lculation the 2,600,000/. which 'he look out of the Exchequer, and replaced by Exchequer bills; and ihsre was the addition of 300,000/. wtiis'h he receiveiljrom tlve Bfnk iu advance on the laad and malt lax. This of rourse added to the ut*. f'lirideil debt. How the Riglit Honourable Gentleman made out that thirty-nine million* was lUe wljole amount of the conaulidated fund lie was utterly nt a loss to gueS!'. Did he include ^heri^tt or nine millions i.*�nfd to cover the arrears of the consolidated fund ?

HOUSE OF LORDSs born during Ihe ex-islente of the marriage between him aoi Margaret MaxwelU Mr. Rout ledge having been at Ibis lime in distressed circum-slancvs agreed Iu .forego' all fnrtlier proceedings, and Ihe claims of his wife, as Ihe heir of Francis Carrulhers, on his paying him Jbe sum of 650A sterliog. Mrs, Kimltedge, however, was not a party to that agreement, hut afierwsrda sbeeKeruled a discharge to her father as to hi r claims,' and oil Ihe day following, Ib^l^ of December, I'J.'iS, be exe, cuted a deed, ilisposing tW lua estates in favnnr of himself and the heirs male of bis body, and in default Iherenf Iu William barruthers, his brolhrr, and Ihe heirs mate of his h(�dy; and in default thereof to bis nearest heirs male, whoever I hey miBhr be, after which be obtained a Crown charter, confirming this disposition uf his eslnles. At the lime Mrs. Ronllcdge was cimpelted by lha distress of her biio-banil, and the inhumanity of her father to! execute Ihe deed she was mider age, but neiiher she nur her husliand considire.d that they had abandoned her right to tbe Dor-mount estate by any deed thfy had exfculed to Francis Oarrujhers lier father. She died in I7B8, and her hus-haod a few years iiflei wards, and her father in 1773.- There was ii^sue of tbe marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Runt-ledge three chihli-eo, a son and two d.tughlers; John Ihe son we'nt to India early in life, and did nut relnra to Scotland onlil be ua^i far advanced iu life, when he lirnngbl an nclinii In set aside Ihe disposition uf the Sih nf December 1759. John RonIledge died in I8I1 while Ibe suit was peod. ins:, and whs succeeded by his sister Mrs. Mnjendie, the Appellaiil, who reuewed Ihesuit, aiitlon ibe22ii May,lSI2, the Cortrl below ilecided against the Appellant, on which she appealed to the House of Lords, aud in 1816 it was �sent tiack to the Court below to revise 'their decision, and nn the 25tb of May 1819, after bearing Counsel, Ihe Court of Session confirmed their original decision, against which the present appeal was presented to Iheir Lordships. The Learned Counsel then runtended, that tbe husband ot a married woman under age had no right Io dis^ pose of her birth-right, and in Ibe discbarge whidi she exe> rjiied to her father, there was not a word said about her heirs; but evea if there was, she was under age nt th^ time. There was another consideration fqr their .Lordships, which war, that at t\ie death W her father; ^he having dleii before hi�fW lief� ex^^etiWQtMyMliCil^ Ibijn^ht proper, Buijat&r lhliote vfner father, Was weak iii two respects, becausie she miglit have been excluded by Ihe birth of an heir male. of. that or any other sultsequent marriage,' and .also that she might die before her father; at Ihat time she coubl do nothing more than bring an action Io purge encumbrances like a snhstilnte'in-entail;' hut Ihat was not the case, as it relii:ed to her son, wlio survived her father without either of these events having occurred. He would suppose a father bound by his contract of marriage to leave his estai* to the heir, who had three soiw. Tbe eldest, be would say, had right to Ihe succession if he survived bis father; tbe second siiu would have tbe aame right if be survived them both, atid so with the younger son if be survived the three. Was it not then quite clear that nu deed or discbarge of the eldest son, or of him and bis father tog'etbeT, could cut nff the rights of the two younger sons? Uuder these considerations be had no doubt but iheir Lordships would overrule the decision of Ihe Court below. Mr. Brouciham followed on.Ihe same side. Mr. Clark k, llie Scotch Advocate, commenced to address their l^ordships as Counsel for the Respondent. The Loud CnANCELton observed, as it bad arrived at Ihe iiflur for cnmmeiiciiig public business, if it met with their Lonlships' pleasure, be wonld move that the fnrlbrr arguments of Counsel in this case should be heard to-morrow, instead of Friday, Ibe usual appeal day, as that would he tbe first day nf Ternri, and it would be inconvenient 10 the suitors of his Court if he was obliged to be nbsent. He aecurdingly inoveil, Ihat Ihe further consideration of Appeals should be adjourned until lo-morruw.-Agreed Iu. Earl MiNTO took llw oaths sHd bis seat. ' AGRICULTURAL PETITIONS. Lord Napier presented two Petitions frbm certain Owners and Occupiers of Land in Berwickshire, praying for an inquiry into the mesas of aflbrding relief to the Agriculture of ihe County. The .Marquis of DoWNStllBE presented a similar Petition from the Landholders of Hie County of Kihiare. The Petitions were severally read and la'rd 011 Ihe table, Mr. Fane, and several other Members of tbe Honse nf Cnmmuus, brought up the Bill for regnlating tbe Office of Clerk of the Peace in Ireland, aud the Ciiy of Gloucester Gas Li^hi Bill. . They were read a first lime, CIVIL LIST BILL. Mr. BnoGnEV brought up Ihe Civil List Bill,a8-amendec|(M�ti�pb->Tlie Petition was laid on Ihe table. CONTEMPTS OP COURT. Lord At.t�ORr prrsenfed a Petilinn from a nainher of Prisoners confined in the Fleet fuf tonlrronts in the Court of Cbancerr, and Iheir ubjecf was to =lale their case to--ihe Honile. They'had been commill^dfor varioas.informalities and for Ibe iloo-payment uf money, many' of lhe|d for several years, A wuiuan, 81 years'of age, was confined Iwealy-one ytars; anollier of 60 years f- ag^, was confined nilie-teen years: and a third fur oiue years.. He was-iBfarmedtf aiMlher, who. was now dying in gaoI,aflcr a lo'ng impri'waaieilt. Ilia object was to bring such fiersons, who had incurred ran-tempts uo peeaniart>^ groitnds, within Ihe purview of his Bill for Ibe RelCef uf Insolvent Debtors. Mr. BBMHErr thought the ease of the Petitioners -was re sitjr harsh. He wished the Conrt of Cbancer3i Jiad twhe a leara list of persons committed for those debts laid be&re Ihe Nobl^ persUo at tbe head of tbe Conrt. It was paiaful In tee pehoin imprisoned Ibruaghool their livei^ ufleik, for non-payment of' monejr which they bad no mniaa of |>ro> cnrloi;. - e^ Bob. and Learned Qenltewv..

BREACH OF PRIVILEGF- Mr. Wtww said he had moved some ti,�e ago for the at-tendance of certain persons who had commenced an action against the Warden nf the Fleet Prison for Itlwraling Qiris-lopher Burton, Esq a MeiE^er of that House, contiiied for debt, Since Ihat time lie heard tbe action was abandoned, and Ihat tbe persons were ready and anxiuns to threw themselves on the mercy of the Honse.

On the motion of Mr. LiisHlNaTON, the House went inio a Committee on the Greenland Fishery Acts.-The Report was oniered to he received to-morrow. NEW LOAN. The Chancellor of the Exchequer rose to .stale, that as it wa� the usual course 10 apprise I'ar-liainetit of the terms on which a new loan was ron-tracted, he rose now to state the conditions upon which subscriptions had been entered into this morning. It was his intention to hare given notice this day, that he would submit this, commanication to the House ill the Committee of.Wavs and iVleaa& on Friday next, when, if |io9Rib|e, he meant tp have stated his fiitsncial plan. The reason which led him to entertain this notice was, that three days were allowed from and iacludtnt; the present for makiog up the ftubscription*.
