HOUSE OF LORDS, Wednesdat, June 28. The Duke of Portland and the Earl of Aylesford, took the oaths and their seats. PAPERS. Mr. Mason, from the East India Company, presented Papers relating to the Trade of the Company, and that of the United Stales of America with China. Mr. Cartwrighl, Mr. Bennett, and other Members of the House �f Commons; brought up the Exchequer Bills Bill, the Barb.idoes Trade Regulation Bill, the Irish Commercial Credits Bill, and the Greenland VVhnle Fishery Bill, which were severally read a first time. THE IRISH TENEMENTS RECOVERY BItL. The Earl of DoNOUGiiMORE tiuid, that when he gave notice that he ivould move llie second reading of the Bill this day, it was not that he thought it would receive opposition, but that he thought it was necessary to exjilain what was the objectof it. When the mensure was orrgioally brought forward ill the other House of Parliament, ii wus extended to tenements let uiuier 20/. a year to tenants-who had runaway, giving the power to the Assistant Barrister to put the landholder in pogvession, without having recourse to the long process of ejectment. The present Bill enlarg from certain inhabitants, complaining of the mode in which the duties on shops and windows were collected-a third from tbe Manufacturers of Tobacco of the same town, praying a full allowance of certain drawbacks on.that article-and a fourth from the Mercbauts, praying � more immediate alteration of the Irish Union, and especiially the 10 per cent, duties.-They were severally read, laid on the table, and ordered to be printed. Mr. Littleton asked the Right Hon. Gentleman on what grouud be could apply to Parliament to continue duties on certain commodities ex-purled from this country to Ireland, such as pot. tery, when a raanuf.ictory of that article did not exist io that island ? He hoped the Right lion. Gentleman would, on reconsideration, give up tho)e duties. The Chancellor of the Exchequer said (as we understood), that he had had a cummunicatioa recently wilb the gentlemen principally concerned in that trade; but from what had passed, he was not prepared to give a decided answer. LABOURERS. The Report of the Labourers Wages Bill was brought up and agreed to, and the Bill ordered tu be read the third time'on Friday, if engrossed. A Member,,with whose name we were unacquainted, gave .notice that he should move as an instruction to the Committee, that the Bill should be limited in its duration to three yearf. EDUCATION OF THE POOR. Mr. Daly was then called on to bring forward bis motion regarding the Irish Insurrection Act; but some difficulty arising thereto from the absence of the Secretary for Ireland (the Right Hon. C. Grant), and Mr. Brougham requetting the Hoii. Member to give priecedence to bis motion,-on the plan for the education of the poor, siatiug, that a great misconception respecting hit* object prevailed oiit of doors, which he was anxious to remove us early as possible-and that a postponement from this night would probably be d-post-pi>uemenl for the Session, as the House wus aware that a Bill might sliorlly b� expected jo the Lords which would prevent him from attending this House duriqg the remainder of the Session ; on the�e grounds Mr. Daly conceded his right of (iriority, and- . . Mr. Brougham rose. .He had to return his thanks to the Hon. Gentlemen apposite for ibeir kindnt-ss and candour ; and he should now, without further preface, proceed to bring forward his measure, a meusure which, considered with reference to its object, was perhaps second ^in importance lo none ever introduced into that House, The House hud been latterly employed on subjects of a very different kind, and, vulgarly; speaking, mpre interesting. But however illustrious .were tbe iiiclividuals whose disputes hati unfortunately come under the coDsideratipti of farliaineiU, he had no hesitation in saying .that this subject was of infinitely more real and perinanent interest aiid iinportance; and he hoped that J^ar|iameDt would be enabled to pass a measure' which nould reflect lasting honour on iheiiuelaea, and continue tP confer deep and extensive bene6t,,^o their couqiry, long after the memory of tlibse differences would have faded out ofmeii'smind*,-^WeoT, /lear./-He wasawarethnt the present'was.a very unfortunate momMtt for entering on the disciission of this gnive, and, us it would appear to some, dry question. He only trusted lo the patienct and indulgence of tbe House; and'should in the outset request, without intending it as a sarcasm to any wlm luar.l Ijini, that if any Gentleman felt the detaii:' inln which he should ftel himself (>bliged to entt-r, uii> ii;-dious arid heavy for his uitmtiun, he would be pleased tci reserve himself for matttr!" more interesting, and withdraw,-(ffear, /(far.)_It was now two years since lliese inquiries hud lir�t been iiislitutpd ; duriiis; that tune tliey l)�d been ciuried on with more or less, petaeveraiicj and success. But the result nl" thein at lust wiia, a. mass of �talisticaj accounts, which lie would venture to say (ioiituined a great deal of vnluuble knowledge; for instead of coti�istiii^. as all loriu>^r sl.i. �Ifstical teturos dill, of mere matters of cUy detail, 6t;ures, numbers, a(Imeai>urrinftits, and arniiia-'-tical statements aud calculations, tliese iiccrnn.'i:.-comprised a vast body of mural iiilurniiilioit, iviiicM the mure it wa.s studied, the inort; useful uik! ime-resting it would be fouiiil. Ami in the tirst (i'ljc*-; he wished tu be niluwed to return lliunks id d!t those reverend periioiis to whom llie couiitry wus ir-debted lor the returiisi, uurl ivnliout wiurae (ibes* of ilie Miuis'e.-(iieuT.J-: They had gone on regularly umi ciiiistantiy in ihtf discliaige of tlie duly imposed on liicin, untireil and unchecked by any accident!", il.nuoli fveiil;] part, to cause Some uf llit^iii trouble which was nnnece�s;iry,- {Hear, he�r )-; He hoped he should be p-.irdoiieii Tur gwu'i � lilllf at length into topic, because tlie plun, the sketch of which he intended to rxpbin tu llie House, was sirii-lly nnd intimalily coiiiitciril with the Clergy. It designed la give llietn h general superintendence over llie educuiiou. o-l ilie puor, and he thought the best mode of procuriii;,f the approbation of the House to it, was to deMTibe what had been done iu this respect by that body of men, becuune it would be the best pledge of their willing^ nea and earnestnei's to promote lliut great iiatiuuul object.-[Hear.)-The Committee had at first addressed a circular to the clergy of the ditfrreiit parislies, which was attended to with such diligence, that on the first day on which an answer could be had, 60I returns were received-[hetiT]--and by the next post 3,600; so that iu one week, more having come to hand in the succeeding days, one-third of the clergymen of England had obeyed the summons given tjieiii-thai is, all of thtin who were within reach of it within the lime. In a ^hort time tiie remainder reiurued their answer.s, wilh tl �f exception (lor a little difficulty would always arise in carrying on a corres-pondence wilh above eleven thousand individual!-) of about five or six hundred. A new circular was sent to those clergymen from whom the returns were deficient, but even after that, there were some hundreds not furtlicumiug. But he ought lo explain, that by an accident which had happened in the Post-office department, grow� ing out of the dissolution of Parliament, not at all through the negligence or misconduct of any of the officers of the department, 360 of the returns were mislaid. Accordingly another circular was dispatched lo the 360 clergymen who rnade these returns. It did so happen that these 360 returns were the very beet out of the whole 11,200, atid that they had been picked out aud put into a box far that quality. These returns h.iil been callei! fur in terms which might have been Spared, anil the individuals were addres�ed in liiiij;na|;e perhaps too strong (ihough he could not take the blame of that on himself), merely because they had done their duty the most diligently and ably of ull. It might be expected that they would have been a-little provoked, aiid he should not have bi�ifn surpriied if some of them had retnrned a very sharp answer, some of their returns extending to eight or ten pages closely written. But it vyas not so ; Ihe result was na slrong an insluiice of Christian forbearance, meekness, aud benevolence, a* he had ever heard of-(Hear)-only two persons out of the 360 made any complaint.- (Hear.)- Those who hud kept copies, siit down' and inade the returns over again, and those who had not, made out other ones. He thought it better to slate this, though it might be supposed to reflect something on himself, he being the mo8t,.�^Jon8ible Memtjei' of the Committee ; so he'^ounded oi� this the inference of the perfcfrtTgood will und zeal of all the clergymen in,��iigland for the education of'the poor.-f HeliT/^--Vl^ had since received uiuwrrs to private leUBsSeK-siou had beei^ prepared, a6tl wad in' the httiVds'of ;
