CONSOLi'jtfkTED FUND. Mr. MAntiRtY said thai*' very hasty proceeding had respecting � vcrJ|.iiiiportant measure-the Consolidated Fund Produce Bill^^lt had been read a first time -to-day, and a sccondlime ji^^Niow,' bfid, ill all probahility, would be read a third liiae:�i>q)n. Member had been out of order in his laet obtni^t^ldD, as the Bill must pass tiirough a Committee befor^^lmug read a third time-Sir H. Pa lis eli. preient'e%�'Petition from the Inhabitants of Chester, fur iliC'aiei^n of a bridge over Ihe river Conway.-Read, and laid re-gard'd >ill these principle.". The N.-hle Lord then prorerded to describe the cirtuiuslances of the Treaties of laOOantil 1815, by the latter of which the Ionian Island*, with which Parga had been connected ill government ,had coiue under the power of England, but we regret to say that here, and in several parts of his speech, the iioii;-. That; for the purpose of havins; the whole facts of the case before Parliament, au ^lumble Address be presented to bis Majesty, praying that he would he graciously pleased to lay btfore Ihe House a Copy of the Memorial presented by the natives of Parga lo Ihe Secretary of State for the Colonial Department, togelherwith the accompanying documents. Mr. GouLBURN said he now rejoiced th�t after nearly two years of the grossest niisrepreseotalious and misconceptions upon tliis Bubjtct, an opporla- nity was now afforded of seeing the real state of tlie case, which would in � few days ajjpeur by the (iro-duclinn of the documents called for by the Nohie Lord who made this motion. These docum^i'is would shew whether the conduct of the-British G>-vernraent to the iuhabitanls of Parga was marked by either abandoument or treachery, or by a strict adherence to Ihe provisions of a Treaty,- and ihe closest regard In .the wants and feelinss of lliePar-ganiole=, He thought that indeed the Noble Lord himself must have hud some doubt upon Ins subject when he generalised so much^ and complaiiied upon topics rnore connected with the ;itiierul govtrn-uieiit than any particular grievances of the people. If he had any particular case to complain of, he could surely at once have brought it fbrwurd, without calling for papers which had reference lo loiiuh-lication as he wa� ready to believe thu- iVoble Lord had with the other. He would not enter into hi; historical review of the stale of P^ga, or go furthe.-back into ils history than the cession to France, anil confirmation ot that possession by the Treaty ol California. He then took a review of the different Treaties which were connected with the possession of Parga, and made at several' times betweeti the PorVe and Russia, and the latter power and France, prior lo the possession by Englaud in 1815. In the territorial arrangements at the Congress tif Vienim, it was said no mention was made of Par^a. Wl,y should there ? for the Porte was no i�arty to the proceedings at Vienna, and it would hKve beeii unfair to have disposed of thjt to which he was etv-' titled, by any act of Congress, lo which he w:i no party. - (Hear, hear, heur.j.i-^\r. was said that tile English took |)OSsebsion of Par^a a? friends, not as iiivuilers, and should not therefore have afterwards delivered over the inhabitants to rulers to whom they were inimical ; it was also said that the independence of the Parganiotes was guaranteed by pledges given by the British autht)-iities, and that they were to aliide the fate of the Ionian Islands. To these staleoienis he would merely reply, that they were utterly unfounded in fai:t. 'J'he Hon. Gentletnan read a letter from General Campbell, who was the British officer who conducted tlie public matters relating to the possession of Pargx, whicli letter was dictated by the General on his death bed, and positively de-nii-il that he had iigiveii any amhority, di-recily or indirectl)-, to the inhabilanls for any pledge or promise of the kind alluded to. There was, therefore, no authority whatever for supposing that the Parganiotes had suslaineil the smallest breach of faith throughout the whale transaction. When it was no Ioniser advisable fur this country to retain possession of Parga, many courses ivere open for adoption. The British g.irrison m!;^ht have withdrawn without procuring for the inhab-tants the terms ultimately obtaiiie|d for them. In-�stead of doing this, they secured fur tiie inhabitants, wlio would not live under the 'I'urkish Gover. -ment, a full indemnity for tlie abandonment of their properly. It was, he knew, denied tiiat the Parganiotes had received the equiv lient which they ought for the sacrifice they hail niaih-. He (.Vir. Goulbnrii), on the contrary, was prepared to prove that tiiey did receive a full bona Jide con,siileratioii for their property. He knew tliat u valuation of G00,OOO/. had been slated as the valuation of this property ; but he thought it utterly impossible that i?,700 inhabitants could in so slio.rt a period luwe realized property lo any such extent-he thought it absululsly impossible. Besides, (e would shew that the arraiitjemeuts lor [jayraeiit were made entirely with a view to the convenience and interest of the inliabitaiils, for, instead of theii-being left to make bargains as iiidividsials with those to whom the transfer of property whs to be made, the bargain was made for them by the public authorities, with a formal stipulation seciiiinij the innde and amount of payment. He knew that an officer early employed in the tfaosactioii had rather extravagantly raised the expectations of the -fieople as lo the scale of valuation which was lo be adopted ; but in point of fact that valuation, though not embracing their churches, for which '.^e knew a claim had been set up, had been made by valuators on both sides, with the strictest regard lo ihe principles of justice. They took the average produce of the land as the criterion of its value, and gave to each individuid a full consideration as an equivalent for his share of the territorial property. On the fair average produce the valuation was struck; any other mode would have been unfair. They might tis "well, S if some principles that had been reconufleiided were acted upon, have gone to the consuleratioii as if they were taking one year's iiroduce as the criterion of permanetlt value of a West India estate.- Besides the terms made for securing tliem Ihe fnii value of their properly, a convenient and suitable spot of land elsewhere was offered to the:n-not, as had been said, a bare and unfruitful spot-to le-build their places of residence. They were oHercd this at Corfu ; and he could state fartiier, that though he knew some of the inhabitants hud coiii-plained of their ciiurclies not being included m tlie valuation, yet iie did not hear of one wlio h.ui said that his own absolute prupeny was not fairly valued. The Honourable G>-n:lenia:i then praised the conduct and admioistriition of .Sir Thorn is Maitland in the highest terms, .md saii! lie had conducted himself^ throuj^hout this iransjction, .is he had done iu all others, with me Ini^hest hcnuor and most unimpeachable fidelity.- (//far,/ieur.) - With reference to the new taxes allu*;ed to-, i.e had merely to state, that they were laid on in pursujiicd of an agreement between the Governnaent and the inhabitants, who recommended the i,; pfoveaient of an ancient canal which was connecteil v.iiii the main land. The inhabitants agreed to pay one half the expense, and the Government the iem under. The Hon. Gentleman then defended tie course taken by Sir Thomas Mailland, in altering the mode of ;
