Uxd Caltbobi^e exprened hii'optW^n lliat the ekisting w>ctwlg under the view of Parlibukeni a subject tivhich, from the- circumstances of the times, could not have cume ti^u'der the ico'ii-tetiaplatiuti of the Codimittee. That subject was the dispofatvf tfie t^roiir of the Admiraltj, ipf the produce.oir the faur>and'-a�half ptr ceuta., .Mid va-rious other revenues not axaally under the disposi. lion or conliol of Parliament. If a Committee were now appointed to examine the stuie uf the revt?nue of the Crottrii, ttnd taking into cuiiMderu-tit>n the probable amount of those casual revenues, it would, he ilnubted not, either propose a ilitninti-tioti of the funds provided by Purltanient for defraying the expenses of the Civil List, or divert the produce of the casual revenue* which, during the last tweiily-five years of his late MaJesty^h reign, |M-oduced on an average'no le�s ibuti SUO.OOO/. a year, to some other specific object. When he sail! that those extensive revenues had been under the uitcnntrolled disposition of the Crown, he was well uware that the responiibility of the Ministers of the Crntwn Htiurded u restraint to their gross misapplicalion. He also knew that they coultl not be devoted wholly lo the Civil List, for thai lliey were subject to llie cluims of compensation to cnfi-tors, and alsa of indemnification in certain iif stances to the captured, and he felt that tlu-y ouf;ht in Ihe first iiisiunce be under'the discretionary coiilrul uf responsilfte personti, from the iin-[loseibiliiy that would be found of snhjecting tlie complicated �;l�iins of captors and captured, neutrals and belligerents, tn the discussion of Parlia. metit. But when he considered liiat the Committee of 1815.had amply provided for every expense inciilrnt to the C^overnment, he thought it becuine Parliament to exclutle the possibility of any luiiire misitpplicatioo of so large a surplus itvenue us thai of 300,000/. a year, which was the average of ihnse casual funds daring the whole of tbe reign ot his late IMajesty. Ill examining tbe Bill now before their Lord-ships, be found a clause ��Hch, after providing for all the purposes already sptiidtd, declared iliut a return should be made to each House of the .equeiitly be difficult to cute, ihnl he sliould ' move as an ametidment, thai no part of the pruilnce of the Droits of tlie Admiralty or of the Four-and-a-half per cent, tluiies, or of the Scotch Revenue, or such other funds as have been usually placed ut the disposal of ihe Crown, shall be, applied to such pur-poses as have been provided fur by ihe Civil List, and that an account be aiiiiuaHy laid before J'ar-liament of the disposal tif sncli siiais a" have been applied to olher purposes." The Noble ' Lord declared that he could not anttcipule any fiir objeclioQ to thi� clause, b* it provided for *very purfose wheiein the exercise of a discretionary power was necet^sary^ autl'nnly prevented the di�. posal of lite iiionvy to jjutpose* already proviiled for ttmply by ibe esiimalei of the Civil List. The IVoble Lord then formully read bio tnotiou, which was put from the AnUack. � ' j '  The Earl oP LivfiapooL cikM by no, nirati� agree with the N'ohle Lord that tlie coofideratioo of Ibis subject bait itol� -erttinrte�(if llie Civil List in 1815 ; nor could In;' cdiiceive how. Parliament ceuld have been tlteii pre-clutttd, if tne'ih)HHir ot fhe Crown, and inquire t>y ,w|!at circo'iistance^ it hart exceeded its limits. On this principle therefore thought it fiir to conclude^ thul in the yeiir 181.5 the .Comuiitlee liatl taken inW roiisulera-lioti every circuniSliliice coiinectVd with the reCeiiilJ and riiali'arseinenls of tht Crown, and Iniil tiol oikii-tcd Ihe dispo.silioii ol lite Droits of the Admiralty, lie ilefliired Dial he could sev no leuson why �ii tins occasion the House should adopt the Noble LcnPa pi'iposition. if they looked back lo the {iistarr �'f the revenue oflheCrowtijHnd of the agreements ni-nl-: between the -Sovertit;ii and Pailianient) they wo.-M find Ihiit ilieDroitsoftiieCro^nhad iierer been sou- !,-eil. Tlie Noble Lord liuil itidt-ed said ihut ail the wiuIh of the Crown were provided tor, and these cixiiSl levennes ntforileil an addiiioiiul sum which PkiIih-meiil ought to lu'^e under lis own cotilrol; but il.t! Noble Lord mtist be aware that oil no former oCi-u-sion was siich a power u>sumed by ' PatUaitien*. The arriiiigement maile vtith George II. wiia, n� ttii: Noble Lord must be aware, pxtiemely dvfterent fri5ui that made with George III. In the due of George JI. certain revenue* were settled on llu: Crown, and � fixed .stun was decUred, wlilili ivn� in be coiisridered ns the ni2/ji;�H� of tlte Civil Li^-t; but no mailer how prnduclive those settled reviunia iniolit prove, all the surplus belonged tethe Crowi:, to be at lis uticoutrolled disposal. But in iS.e c.�^� ofGeortJe III. a specific sum was establi.�l.ei! f�y i'urliament, lil onCe as a minimum anil a maxiit'itm, yet no attempt was then made to interfere with th.: Droits of tlte A-dniirally,llie four-and-a-half per cent, duties, and the olher casual levenues. Nor sliould Il be supposed thai this reserve of P.irliumrnt w�,taiict�, the casual revenues of the Crown atnoniiieil to a sum must unusually larf'e; but of this sum no |>srt wu" applied 10 ihepurposea of the Civil List without the ogmr'nce und sanction nn Act nf Parliuinent. Tins Kunciion was, iii-deed, ill some respect, imtirecily given, for in proviiliiig for the liquidatimi of rerlaiit debts cojj-Irucled upon ihe Civil Li?.!, il was explained and iimler�tond in Pailiiimenf, that io long n^ lliis i'ui.d whs iu existence, 120,000/. should be uiiiiudlly applied tu tliat purpose. Thi applioatioii was niiiJe ut various tiini-s, and under several udtninistralions, and even under ttte administration of which the Noble iVIarqnis opposite {the iVIaiquis of L:iiis,ioit of the Hetieiicy, f�r llie purpn-e nf rjtiing up one of the Royal palaces lor the mvii'niii of ihe Regent.
