' A Petition was prestnteJ, jigiied hy a number of Cotton iManufaciitrers in l^uic.tshire,'praying that a Kate of Wages might he lined for llieir Labour.

GIDDY opposed it on thegroiintls that no good etlecls could possibly hi protliiced.b'yVfix-'i ing Maximums or Minimumsin Tratfe, attij thaVthis. Petition "was bad in principle, lie thought it lici-^ tej- to reject it at once, than by laying it on the, table, give rise to vain hopes that theprayer.would' be aitendtid to, and when these hopes, were dis- of a different opinion with respect to the meaning oflhe passage, which the House ought and.would view iii the sense least offen.sifc, and at the same lime most olivious. No such idea as that suppos d by the Hon. Gentleman, he was -sure, had ever been attached to the mind of his Royal Highness at the time he wrote this letter. . He found himself accused t.f crimes a/rec!ing all that was dear to fcim, hfS fame, honour, and character. Into these accusations a'fair and legal inquiry had been in-stituled ill the open and.puldic manner he himself desired, and the charj-es having been prosecuted to a conclusion, he was anxious to meet, by his allegations of Conscious innocence, the evidence brought against him. It was not to overturn the evidence, but to say, if weighing his allegations and such evidence as they Jiave heard at their Bar, the House of Commons suspected liis.ii:no-KencCjthen he called tipun them for what every British subject had a right to,aud what no British maa would refuse; he called upon Ihem to sti.spcud procei dlfig�, which would have the effect of condemning him without trial, "and, before judgment, to hear such evidence,, as was .required and if it contained any atle^aiicm against tiie' privileges of the HuU-sf, it wotsld have beea the same in either of these cases. He. bad said this much to do a'*ay any iiopressinn (hat might be mathj by what had fallen from thelligfat Hon. Gentleman, tliat there was in Jhis case any thing JikejKini^ely iiut^r/erence uoich never could have been meditated by the Dakc of Vork. 'n. answer to the H. Getitliman's (J.-icstion, he could answer for. himself individually, that he had no inrtemion of making any motion on the tetttr; nor did he know of such an intention on the part of any one of his friends. It lay on the table lii;e other p?pe.r=, and mi^ht be ir-ferred to by any Menibitr of tiie House at a fu'iire lime, stating . iht^grounds on whif.'i t/sc n-ferfiice was made.

The business was in this state at the time (ii^: Hon. Gentleman liad brought forward his thirgr.�, and he thought it imprud(.nt to appear as if ut ail acquainted with the subject.. An inJiclm-nt was ilow liled against Messrs. Pnlleii and i'lylock, and a Lsdy of the nainj of ILirvey, as weil a-i against the Batik-.r who received the dcp.isit..- From what he had said, it would be seen that Government had determined to inquire into and pr---eeed Hgainst those abuses a consideratile time before tile Jlon. Gentleman brought the subject of inquiry before Hie, Mr. COMBE wislwid to know the name of the banker.
