A COMMON COUNCIU hoWen in (he CHAMBER of the GUILDHALL of the CITY of LONDON, ou FRIDAY, the 26lh day of May, 1820; R�soi.vep, npHAT It Hppears to this Conrt, that the great A. excellence uf the Biilinb Constiliitioii mnM arise Vom tlip jpdspeiide|il__exercJ8eq.f t^^e.^sever%l^^weHi. .vested o [lie king,-^Lnr3ii^'and tSnmnuiM. - Tltat as the Ring, by ttle creation of Peers, tin at aay time addto the Membi-rs of the House of Lordit, If .these powers were tu unite under evil Counsellors; or if; by pa-Ironage or undue intlnence, they could command a Majority of Votes in the House of Cummoos, a despbtic Powijr might be established, wllhonl altering the forms of Ibe Cunsdtotiuii. That this Court will not yield to any class of their fellow-sulijects in loyally tii the King, in obedience to Ibe Lawn, and id altacbinent to the Constitutiofi; but when they reflect on the distressed slate of the Agriculture, Manufactures, and Commerce ; the state of the Finance ; togelbcr with the daily and overwhelming increase of Pauperism, Ihey conceive that siich miaforluueH, to have fallen upoii a nation enlightened, liu'nuuralih , and enlerprijiin^; possessed of such vast i-esource!3,-must have arisen in some ibeasure from misrule and bad policy, occasioned by Ibe Peoyle not having a due share in the choice of their Representatives. That the freedom and purity of Election Is an essential principle of the Cuustiiutioii, as appears from many uf our most sacred Laws, passed in various periods of our Hi's-torvj especially the ^d of Edward the First, the Bill uf Rights, and the 2d and Slh ofGeore-' the Second} in which it ia declai'ed, that the �lei:lion of Mernbers ouebt to -that lha Election of Members of Parliament should be freely and indiflerently. mari^V without charge or expense- and that the freedom of Eleciion of Members to serve in Par-liadieiit'ls of Ibe utmost consequence to the preservalioo of the Rights a^d LibeMiea of-lTie Kingdom. That It has bceii declared by the Hoiice of Commons lobe a high infringement uf the Lilierlies aqd Privileges of the Cuinmons uf Great Britain fur aiiy Lord of Parliament to concern himself in the Eleciion ufTliembers to serife for the Commons in Parliament. That, tteverthelesB, by tarious changes which hive gra-'dually crept intoihesystem of Representation^ it has iMieome aucb as to produce a noioriout violation of these esiealial Laws.; as il appears by a Petition p^ented tct the House of Commons by the Hon. Charles .Grey, in the year 1783i',in which il was otTered to) be-proved that 160 M�iDbeVs of f he House areYeturoed by nljoatSCT Voters each; tO otfa'ei^ by Voters'not exceeding iOO-eacIf; 60 otiieta by Voters not exceeding 30.0. or 350 each. that 81 Members were returned by Peers pnBSfsaiOg-'&ur;^^e teAare�,.�ad iSO.-taiore by th6 lulerferepce of Peers. ' . That while the right pf clef ling so considerable a nnmber of Members of the Hous^ of Commons remains vested in such sniatland inconsiderable hi^ies of inen, all atleinpts to secure piirifr of Election must be rain:; and the punish, raent of a few delected offenders will .only be aubveMve ,of respect fAr the Laws^ and rather ,lend to the coDcealn^ent than the prevenlton ufsacbuITencM.

HOUSE OF LORDS, Fricay, May 36. The Duke of DETONSHlCte, the Marquis of EXEfEti, and Lord Yareorovoh, look the oaths and iBeir se�ts. The StaRo Coach Amendment Bill, and several private Bills, were brought fruinihe House of Commoni(, and read �a first time. AGRICULTURAL PETITIONS, lord SiiEFViKLi) pre.ienled a Petition frn^ certain Owners and Occupiers of Land in the county of Sussex, praying foray inquiry into.the present slate of the Agiri&ul-Ibral Dis'iress. The Duke of Grifto.** and Lord Erssine presented similar Petitions from Owners aod Occupiers of Xaail la the coniity of Suffolk. 'JhUe Earl of HarewooI), in presenting i>*o Petiliojia to the same effect from Oiriiers and Occupiers of Laud id t^e heiElibo.iirhooil of DuutaSler, said, thai he'diii hot mean to pledge hiinself to any particular line of cunduM respeetiiti^ these Peliiions. The tibove Petitions were severally laid on the table. , .. SUNDAY NEWSPAPERS, Lord KenYon rose to present a Petition froin a niitattferbf Newsvenders, against the publication of-Sanday Newapapera, which they considered extremely niisi:hievuus, asenconragtng a breach c(f the Sabbath., The Koble ,X,urd slated, that he concurred with lh� Petitioners in their view. of Sooday Newspapers. The number publisher] on the Sabbath day amounleil to 43,000, which on the' s(nal^est calculaliiiu were fead by 280,000 persons on the day that-, wereil uulfof the�e to occnpalidiiB 4mocc suitablebeS�WML_ cummiited by those who devofed their linje oh the Sunday lo reading the papers to wbicli he alluded, there Were al�o,a number of others who were equally Induced to forget ^ bsir Clirisilto duties by ll)e occupations ihey enjoyed fh -the different deparlaienlB.- of the publtaitions .themselves. JVnmbers were thus diverted, both by; the reading and circh-laling of the Sunday Papers, fi'(im those pursuits in which they wniilil otherwise be engaged, were it not that their ait^b-ilon was 6alled off in the maiiner'he bad already stated.- He objected to those Papers, both for the doclriiies ittiy contained, as well ds the breach of Sabbath they caused, end, thought the subject certainly entitled to the interference of the Legislature. He would perhaps himself submit a Bill to their Lardsh^ui on the subject.,. He c(>iiiluded by nibvlng,' that the Petition do lie oil the table, . , Lord Holland said, fhat if soch a BUI were introduoeH,' be ahouid oppose it in every stage. If tlie Sunday papers contained auy objectionable doctrines, ihey were, like all other pablicatiuns,. ameusble to the law, wKtcb was. stnrog enough to meet any evfl of that kind. He certainly, saw ftp mdre reason to interfere with Ih'eSbnda^ than with the daily papers,"in the manner hiuled at: Earl Gkosvenob conciirreil with- the Noble Lord who preaeoled the petition in the impropriety of perroittioe Ibe publication of Sunday newspapers, and to breach of the Sabbath occasioned by thefr Alablishmen^'i((8 circiilatibn. He' had long since elsewhere (we' preaume#bea bis LordsbiF wass'Membet uf the Hou'se'of Commoin)'eodeavoared to rati lbe�llekiiion uf the Legislature, to ilris evil, but he fe.' gretled wilbiiat effect.

After a few Words in explonalion'from Lord HoLUVli and the Juirl uf Liverpool, the latter moved the Order of the Day fur their Lordships going iuto n Committee' on the Civil List. ,The Earl of Liverpool also slated, ibat be fifld it in ciMnmand ft-om His Majeslyi � � substantial prbof of his Majesty's most gracious iuleulioo, to Atate, that it Was thewishoftbe Kin); their Lurdsbips should proceed with this-Bill a� Ihey tfauuglit. fit, ujwn UM-eview Of the whole cirruotstancesjtf the oew 'stablisbmetit.' � �' - was inoWilTO his Majesty for lSi� gMiioat^bn^iioiicaDoo; Their Lordships tlieu w^t ihto. tbe Comm^uiei!-ou tSiMC Lord Dacre said, that io a /utnirie slageof the Bill be uld not yield lo bis view of Ibe tage, nnd he(Lurd Bulkeley) was at the time rather too roughly handled for a poor little Welshman-(yi iaup/i)-by another Noble Lord. His question was, whether il were not passible lb devise some plan iior the piflrpose of taxing absentees, either'by a charge' on their passports, or in some other-way ? There were immense nnnibers couslanlly going Abioad, either on busioesa Or pleasure-and Ihe counli-y, In its preseol slate, ought lo have soma of its burdens shared amoog tliose whs were absenting themselves in tbe manner he had nieutioned. The evil of these absentees " bail increased, is increasiog, and ought to be diminished." The Earl of LlVEBt�OL remembered having inforiiiea the Noble Lord when be put a similar question lo him uo the former |>eriod, that he bad uu-ubjectiun to llje principle of such a lax, if the difficulties-attending its imposition coiild be removed. But upon all the consideraiion which he could give llie subject, be (ionfessed he coiild not see bis way tbrougb any arrangement that coOld- be practically advantageous to tli� counlry. Thougb.the Government were unable to instiluie auy such mea:si} their view of the case, they were perfectly raaiiy; lo adopt any auggealioua which should appear to Ifiem pfscticaliie with refeirence to tbe subject. He certainly doubled the secondof Ihe Noble Lord's propositions^ that tbe evil " is Increasiug;" for last yew tba absentee were certainly less odmerons than at an anteoedent jierioil. Lord RotLB s^id, that there could be no objection in ib'e slate of tlie country lo a p'ro^erty tax upon abienleea, rated [OiMbe^^nMaiit^frofwrtirth^yiiceir from the eowolM; , Ho bOjiM'MtBislens would donsidec.

Lord, ^VLKELG'i' was clad to hear such, a ;oageslion, though'he feared it would be hopeless if the Government could not see their way thfongb Ihe subjiict, FREE TRADE. The Marqois of LAlfSOOWir presented � Petition from lb; Mel88�B of 't�ei(r that itt. dbiiig so, he begged distinctly not . tu'b)g undeKttioti as in any sliapii wisMiig tb'iriter-'lejri'win Hhe'pVtivince i)f aoy Woble'L(�fd who I ni^j^'j^hi'iiK 1^^^^^ hrane'b-'of tlie' subject _de. selVilog orfh^ir'L>irdsKi'i)�' pavticii^l^ doijsttleraUt^i.

The reasoii he se-* lected the state of foreign trkde a.� a fit sirhjec^ for immediate iitveiiiigalion, -was, because ti wa�^ question less likely-than any other tocsil forth the strong feelings of large classes of the roin-munityj and one which in: fact involvedj iriore than any othef, tlife general interests of the whole. In looking at this important subject he'wasawure that their Lordnhips could not for a moment catui-tenanceany opinion so impolitic, aa.Uiat tlie special interests of any class io the commiinity were to be considered as separated frotb that of any other body of the people in tbe present general distress which prevailed, or that the interest of the one could be Upheld by any special and exclusive privilege for the other. If ever such an idea prevailed it never coUld be realised-it Was impracticable-for so inseparably interwoven were the laws of Providence with the real interests of mankind, and so certainly operative were they beyond all human aialutes and regulalioti�, that the wants of men would ever be fbbnd to regulate tlieir acts and to govern their destinies. The moment that by human agency it-,, was atteraiited to ..raise up any barrier to Eeparate particniur interests frdm the generdi raas�, tbe folly of the error would soon be apparent, for it would soon be found that the iiilerest so attempted to be-proppcd, would not only be lost, iu the common interest of the whole, but would in the end surt'er with aceumulaled mischief the,-partis cular evil which it had hoped to ward o^.- He hoped that upon this point the ejtperiente of ibe last ten years would not be-Io�t .iipon the country.

Suppose that such an independence could ' be ^achieved, would they reflect on wb Universal calafflily and distress muMl be tbe attendant upon such a �)8lemj and every c|as�i in society would be alike sufi'erers;- H.e knew that this was to^ put an e^ttreme case, but it , Wn one within the scope,of the operaiiojt of.a partial measure, such as that he had allnd^tD, and miglit ftrirly be used in �fgumei�t, Itwps therefore impossible with any effect to cou>ider.tbe pre.oeat state of the couhtry wvthupt ilisiiiisaiog from {heir njirlds ihe.prejudice of jjarlinl'ur 4i�Unf| interests, and looking from the |iart to'lh> w^ale, ' on the broad grouud of the general an>t ;;;3^pfe-heiisive ieffect uf the combination of ciivui'usti^ttees.
