NEWRY, IStV. taifi- ( 400 The Marquis WKLLESLEY rose to submit his pro- mised Resolution, on the subject of the political dis- abilities to which the Roman Catholics of Great Bri- tain and Ireland are subject- His Lordihip said, the question—" how shall so great, numerous, and pow- erful a body, be incorporated in the State, so as to lender it least injurious or most beneficial ?".— had never been considered as a grand whole. " Now, then," continued the Noble Marquis, " I would ask your Lordships, is the time at hist come for the deli- berate consideration of this important subject ? Is the season at length arrived, when we can apply our minds to the investigation, clear of those accidental circum- stances, and distinct from those passions, which at va- rious periods of our history, swayed the passing of these regulations! Are those circumstances past, which induced many of us to think delay expedient ? Is the time come, when, the question is no longer to float on the wings of error, on the whirlwind of pas- sion, and the tempest of foreign war— and are we at last to apply to the maxims and policy of the Consti- tution ! Are we at length to consider how these dis- abilities accord with the principles of natural justice, with the spirit of the Christian religion ; and above all, with that of our reformed religion ? Shall we now, then, rescue this momentous subject from the hands of those who may wish to make use of it for the worst of purposes, and rest it upon those solid grounds, and sound principles, which have rendered this country pre- eminent among nations, for arts, arms, liberty, war, government and religion : ( Hear, hear) With regard then, to the theoretical perfection of the system, without recurring to ancient times, and all the various causes as detailed in our history, from which the system originated, and advanced to its present state, I shall only ask youf Lordships to look at it as it now exists.

Yet the opera- tion of this system is, to subject the Roman Catho- lics of England to disabilities from which the Roman Catholics of Ireland are to a certain degree exempt. What, then, is the operation of the system in Ire- land ? There, while the Catholics are admitted to certain civil offices, they are excluded fiom the most important. They are admitted to the Bar, but dis- qualified from serving the Crown in that profession ; and the lower classes of tilt Bar are therefore discon- tented, I hope not disaffected; but discontented— and that discontent necessarily arising out of the con- cession itself. ( Hear). In the army, the opera- tion of the system is the same. They are allowed to reach a certain point; and when they have attained that, they find an insuperable bar to farther progress. I should next request your Lordships to look at this system, ss it operates upon Catholics in Scotland ; and 1 ask whether, by the law of Scotland, since 1793, Catholics are not admissible to all offices, civil and military, in that country r That, I think, will ap- pear to be the case. The fact is, that the'English Catholics are subject to all the disabilities imposed by the system, except in as far as it was relaxed by the Act of 1791 ; while the Catholics of Scotland, though precluded from voting for Members of Par- liament, or sitting in Parliament, are admissible to very office, civil and military. If the law of that country were examined in regard to this subject, I believe it- would appear, that notwithstanding this privilege of the Catholics, they would be liable to prosecution there, for the exercise of their religion.- Such was the strange and monstrous anomaly of the system in Scotland. But how has it happened, that with these superior advantages enjoyed by the Ca- tholics, the established Church in Scotland is still safe ? The Catholics surely might haye done a great deal in the. period that has elapsed since 1793. Even the Commissioner to the Kirk might have been a Ro- man Catholic j though if he happened to engage in the exercise of his religion, in his way to the Genera! Assembly, he would have beep liable to a prosecution. How, then, has the establishment of Scotland escaped this danger? How are we not alarmed for the conse- quences r I have never heard that any ground of ap- prehension ever existed, or that the Church of Scot- and has been in greater danger, than those parts of the empire where the system has been preserved in a higher degree of vigour. Iam aware that the Catho- lics of Scotland are but small in number ; but I wish to see the proof, that the relaxation has inspired them with the desire, to overturn the established Church of that country. Such is the monstrous auomaly of this sytem in regard to England, Scotland, and Ireland. I have next to shew your Lordships, that this system is contrary to natural justice- 1 insist that it is con- trary to natural justice to inflict any disability upon any tlass of men, jnd to exclude them from the ordi- nary advantages of the Constitution, unless the secu- rity of the Suite necessarily demands the exclusion. I contend it is contrai y also to the spirit of the Chris- tian religkn. I know what passed at the period of the Reformatio I, but I speak of the principles of ou reformed rtl gion, and these, I maintain, are most ad- verse to every species of intolerance, ( hear, hear).— But I go farther, my Lerds ; I say, that the system was never intended to be permanent;— that the inca- pacities were imposed" merely on account of the pecu liar circumstances of the times. It arose from the jealousies entertained, and justly entertained, it the time of the Reformation, of the intentions of the Ca- tholics, and the power of the Pope. From these causes it originated; and from such, and other cir- cumstances peculiar to the times, it grew, and reach- ed its present state. In the time of James I. the Po- pish plot, and the potver of the Raman Pontiff, ex- cited alarm in the minds of the Protestants, and urged them to circumscribe the power of the Catholics.—— The event, which occurred in the reign of Charles I and ended in the overthrow of the monarch, led to a similar policy. At the time of the Restoration, the greatest jealousy was entertained of all those who dis- sented from the Established Church; and measures were taken against the Dissenters, in which the'Catho lies were involved. When the policy of the Govern- ment of Charles II., his attachment to Uie Catholics, and his subserviency to France, began to be deve- loped, the Protestants naturally became alarmed for their Established Church, as well as for the liberties of the country; especially vyko the great power of France at that time was taken inro account, and the known determination of the French Court still to support the Catholic cause. But the penal laws did not merely flow from these considerations. The pub lie mind was always kept in a state of perpetual agita- tion and alarm by accounts of plots and conspiracies, which, however foolish they now appear, excited then most serious apprehensions. Under these circum- stances, the urgent sense of danger led to additional disabilities, and the severest penalties. At a later period of our history, ( in the reign of James II.) the same occasional principles produced an extension of the code. James followed up the policy of his bro. ther, with more zeal, and less concealment. The alarm rose to the highest pitch ; and hence arose the necessity of providing against'a Popish succession to the thione, which the pewer and policy of the French Government then rendered dangerous to the religion and liberties of the country. When William ascend- ed the throne, we know that he was by many consi- dered as too favourable to general toleration— too fa- vourable to the Catholics, and especially to certain officers in his army of that persuasion : and it was not till Louis, the French King, in violation of a treaty of peace, acknowledged the tide of Pretender to the Crown of England, that King William, and the great Ministers of that time, had recourse to the severe penal laws which were then dnacted. We have frequently heard the names of Lord Somers and Lord Hardwick mentioned as the promoters of this system. These indeed are great names; but they ought not to be profaned, for the purpose of support- ing the infirmities and errors of their successors.— .( Hear I) We, who say that this system ought to be considered and amended, do not differ from Lord Sowers and Lord Hardwick ; for the circumstances of the times are not the same. When Lord Somers was favourable to this system, Louis was in the ple- nitude of his power, and openly supported the cause of the Pretender to the English throne. Are we now under the apprehension of any such danger ?— Is there any Pretender to the Throne ? Is there any dread of the principles of a Popish Pretender ?— Are the circumstances ot that, and the present time, in any point similar to each other!— No; they are all completely distinct and different— But the j Pope was the instrument of Bonaparte; and we were to dread his influence on our population, through the Pope. What was tire history ? Bona- parte wished to bring all Italy under his iron crown, and the Pope's dominions stood in the way. Bona- parte seized his person, as a preface to the seizure of his rich domaines. That Pope who was to shake the allegiance of Ireland, was now a prisoner of France; and was there to be found a man who would still say, that the authority of the Pope was still capable of producing an evil influence on the mind of the Catholics ? " I am convinced, ( said the Marquis Wellesley) that no act of the Pope, in his present situation, would be acknowledged by the Church. I think that his present situation goes di- rectly to extinguish his authority in the church of every country of Europe. But has his authority been exercised ? Has there Ijecn an attempt to exercise it ? !' And has there been no temptation to the attempt ?— He is in the hand* of Fiance* « nd has there been no temptation to exercise it in Sjiaifi, in Portugal, and above all, in the Spanish Colonies ? If he had the influence still, who could doubt that it would be called forth by Bonaparte ? But he knew it to be useless— he knew that the idea of using the spiritual power of a captive man would be utterly vague, and he there- fore did not; call it forth. But it might be said, Bo- naparte had only seized the temporalities, leaving the spiritual poxzer free. No— why did he summon the Bishops to Paris ? By that act he went directly to abolish the spiritual power in the Pope, and vest it in himself. I cannot think that the slightest danger is to be feared whilst he regains a captive. But the doctrines are turned upon. The doctrines hostile to our Constitution are upheld, even though the Pope may have fallen. I say that those doctrines have also fallen— they have been abjured, as far as relates to temporals, and, in same instances, as to spirituals, by the great Catholic bodies, in the most solemn manner. By some it was answered, that the'rioctrines were ne- ver held by all— that they were not held now. I am ashamed to repeat what has been so often impressed upon you." His Lordship then spoke of the necessity of an early consideration. It had always appeared to him, that what was to be done, must not be delayed, if it was to be done well and wisely. The consider ation of the question had been always deferred, and apparently without sufficient reason. " I am, ( said he), sincere ill my opinion, that no time should be lost, in taking it up by Parliament; that it should not he suffered to float about at the mercy of every man who may use his opportunity to distort and exagge- rate the grievances of the people. Rescue it from the hands of the enemy; I do not speak of persons in Ireland, but rescue it from France. ( Hear, hear.) Let the agitation of the public mind only provoke us to take it up, and take it up as speedily as we can. I trust in Goa, that we < tre now about to bind our- selves to that final arrangement which will amend all — secure all— reconcile all." The Marquis Welles- ley then read his Resolution :— " That this House will, early in the next Session of Par- liament, take into its most serious consideration the state of the laws affecting his Majesty's Roma » Catholic subjects in Creat Britain and Ireland, with a view to such a final and lonciliatory adjustment as may be conducive to the pcace and strength of the United Kingdom, to the stability of the Protestant Establishment, and to the general satisfaction and concord of all classes of his Majesty's subjects." Lord LONGFORD said, he considered that the fast- est friends of the claims of the Catholics could not but think that they had proceeded in their recent con- duct to an unwarrantable length, since the discussions their application last year. He objected to the r 1 ' 1 - , The LORD CHANCELLOR said, the present mo- ! tion, it was true, professed a great deal. Oh f that we were able to accomplish it ; and that, on such a1 subject we could come to a determination which , would satisfy all, consistently with the general safety! ! It was from the fears arising out of the consequences j which this question involved, that James II. was ex- I eluded from this Protestant kingdom— now not the j less, he honed, a Protestant, because it had become ! an United Kingdom. He confessed that he was one of those who thought the Protestant religion a much purer one than the Roman Catholic ; and who thought it greatly conducive to the public welfare, in all respects, that English Protestantism should be most highly favoured by the State. He might, with some degree of confidence, refer to authorities : to those of Lord Hardwicke and Lord Somers among others. The conduct of the descendants of those great persons on this subject, shocked him. As a sup. porter of the civil and religious liberties of the coun tiy, as settled from the time of the Revolution, and of the Protestant Establishment in Church and State, he, and those who thought with him, only requested of others to say, distinct!)', what it was that they meant to propose. He humbly asked of the Noble Lord, and of the House, what it was that the Noble Lord had that night proposed ? It would be said— Consideration 1. So it was called : but in spirit and meaning, it was absolute concession. When the No- ble Marquis wa9 acting side by side with him, at the beginning of the present Session, with opinions of which he ( the Lord Chancellor) had not heard much before the 21st of January, and of which he bad very littie suspicion, he remembered that Noble Marquis saying, that if we were to give way to menaces and threats, the proceedings of Parliament would only be- come the registers of Conventions of Englishmen, or Irishmen, or of any persuasion of men, and its functions would be resigned. He then accorded with the Noble Marquis, who, with contrary opinions to his, on other points, yet voted against the discussion on the state of Ireland. If circumstances Operated in such a manner on the mind of thatgre. it man ( Marquis Wellesley) 5 or6 months ago, he would begtoaskhim, whether similar circumstances did not exist now ? A Noble Duke had asked a question relative to any in- formation received by Government respecting a late meeting in Ireland, where Lord Fingal and others were present. He begged those who were not blind- fold, to look at the published account. He was still not concluding himself against consideration, even next Sessions, for no man should be so concluded on any measure, but left to act according to what he might think right at the time: but he would ask any Neble Lord, who had re^ d that account, whether he had ever seen any thing more scandalous and infa- mous against eminent individuals,— against the most exalted characters, —— against the very person who exercised the functions of sovereignty in this king- dom, and the proceedings of the Legislature, in the exercise of its conscience ! A more criminal paper never appeared 1 ( Hear, hear.) But it was even said, *' shew us the dangers!" What ! was he to be called upon at this period, in this Protestant country, to shew the danger of the subversion of the Protes- tant establishment? ( Hear.) He was not to be disturbed by what he heard. He would appeal to the Statute Books. There he found, that what happen- ed to King James the 1st, was for attempting to sub- vert the Protestant religion. The Catholics admit- ted, that no Prince, Prelate, & c. ought to have tem- poral power, & c. within these realms : but the real question was, what was temporal, they might often call spiritual. ( Hear.) Concessions being made— the Noble Marquis and himself might shake hands together ; but as he hoped for God's mercy, he be- lieved that he should not be living under the same Constitution under which he had lived during ail his past life. He should conclude by declaring that he would make a motion on which he would divide the House, even if he should stand alone. As the No- ble Marquis and himself had agreed, at the commence- ment of the Session, not to vote for absolute conces- sion, so he could not now vote for the present motion whatever hereafter it might be right to do. He proposal of the Noble Marquis, that they should pledge themselves to consider the question within any limited period of time. It was not on account of mere religious opinions entertained by the Catholics, that he objected to the concessions they asked; but he objected to the full admission to civil and political power of persons who acknowledged a foreign juris- diction. In Ireland the case was peculiar, from the numbers of the Catholics, ^ nd from the power which Bonaparte might possess over the Pope ; and it was not certain, that the character of popery was so much changed as it was said to be. We ought, on all ac- counts, to wait till we ascertained our securities on the first instance. He had only to repeat, his objec- tso » s were not on a religious, but a political grovW-!. should therefore move the previous question. When the Lord Chancellor sat down, Lord GRF. Y and Lord HARDWICKE rose at the same time. The latter Noble Lord caught the eye of the Chancellor first, and he proceeded to say, that he sho jld not have pressed himself at all upon their Lordships' attention, during this debate, but for the very pointed manner in which he had been contrasted with his venerated an- cestor. It was not for him to state the opinions of the high characters to which the Noble Lord alluded; but if he knew any thing of their recorded sentiments, he thought he could venture to state, that if either Lord Somers or Lord Chancellor Hardwicke were alive now, they would hold opinions on the present question very different, indeed, from those which had been expressed by the present Chancellor ( hear.)— The Noble Loid had said, that he was shocked at the change which had taken place in the minds of Noble Lords on the subject. He should retoi t his own ex- pression upon the Noble Lord, and would say that he was really shocked at the manner in which he had opposed the motion of the Noble Marquis. He was astonished to hear, on a serious question like the pre- sent, arguments so futile, and reasons so utterly void of every thing but folly, as those used by the Noble Lord ( hear.) It was his lot to have seen Ireland j in 1781, previously to the concessions to the Catho- j lies. He saw Ireland also recently, and he could | take upon himself to say, that tiie impioved state of ( that country,— the progressive amelioration of its con- : dition,— were owing eminently, if not altogether, to former concessions ( Hear, hear.) He would con- tend, that those, who, like the Noble Lord, argued for shutting the doors entirely against the Catholics, must sdopt the alternative different from conciliation, that of extermination ( Hear.) He did not wish to betray secrets, nor to quote from documents which ought not to be quoted from ; but he though'' it his duty to say, that the recorded expressions of Lord Cornwallis, after the Union, were, " that it was ab: o- lutely necessary for his Majesty's Government to con- sider the state of the laws, as they affected the Roman Catholics, with a view to their repeal: or that his Majesty's Government should at once say, that those Roman Catholics ought to be destroyed." These were Lord Cortuvallis's expressions, and let the No- ble Lord apply them as he should think fit. Lord CLANCAUTY said, that if the speech of the Noble Lord, who had just sat down, pioyt' 4 any thing, it proved too much, for his arguments went al- together to nnquil. fk'd concession. He would ven. ture to say, that the Catholics themselves never dream- ed of such concession. The Duke of SUSSEX said, after what had fallen from the Noble Lord on the Woolsack, he fo; tnd it impossible not to m ike a short and conscientious ef- fort to counteract the tendency of those sentiments. He hoped that he would be believed by the country* and by their Lordships, when lie said he felt as great anxiety for the support of our establishments in church and state, us the Noble Lord, though he differed 1 most widely in the manner of that support. When it was last before the House, various difficulties ex « isted, and various opinions were held, which were now overcome or abandoned. No man, with the events of the last six weeks in his eye, could say, that a considerable change had not taken place in the fea- tures of the Catholic question. It was - of course in the recollection of the House, that within tJie last six weeks two attempts had been made at the forma- tion ofnew Administration, the basis of both which attempts was conciliation of the Catholics.—( Hear, hear! )— One of the Noble Lords, ( his Noble Friend Moira), who was commissioned to make'one of those attempts, was so convinced of the necessity of concilia, ation, that he might well conclude how favour,. f. le the Catholics were the sentiments of the illusti', person who gave his Noble Friend that commission. What, then, was the present state of the question ?— It was singly and nakedly" this— whether the restric- tions which degraded the Catholic below his Protes- tant fellow subject should now be done a- way ?— ( Hear, hear/)— Whether Parliament should now, by one great act of legislative wisdom, and nation .1 generosity, unite all classes of his Majesty's subjects in defence of the common rights of their common country against the common enemy.—( Hear, hcarj) Would this, and he put it to the Noble Lord on the " Woolsack, be pulling down the barriers of the state 1 Would it not, on the contrary, be rearing up impreg- nable bulwarks for its protection? Whatever the Ro- man Catholics got, was in the reign of his present Majesty? Yes, in the 11th und 12tb of his reign it was, that the situation of the Catholics was first taken into consideration. Then it was, that for the fust time the Catholics were permitted, in their own coun- try, to be possessors of 50 acres of bog- hfnd for a term of 61 years, together with half ah acre of aiable land, provided that was not within a mile of a town ! — This concession was followed by that of 1778, which gave to the Catholics the power of taking leas- es for 909 years; and by that of 1782, which put th » Catholic on the same footing with the Protestant, not in a political light, but as to the purchase and disposal of land. In 1793, the right of election was vested in the Catholics; that right of which they had been deprived since the first or second year of Georoe II. Did any of their Lordships expect to keep the Ca- tholics stationary in the situation, to which, by pro- gressive enactments, they had thus been raised ? In his notion of this free constitution, he understood, that under it there was a natural connection between • property and power. The Catholics were permitted to acquire property; and power must follow it. Any attempt to separate power from property, or . to keep them, when in existence, froftt uniting, would, he was convinced, not only disturb the tran- quillity, but vNiuld emliiArrer the^ stability of the ynte. ! The Earl of HARROWBy'saidi the object which was principally to be desired, was general concilia- tion ; and he did not know how that object could be obtained, unless by full and temperate discussion He trusted, that in the interval between this arid the beginning of the next Session, the question wo « ld well considered in this view; and with tllat hope he should support the present motion. The Duke of KENT said, having been educated in the principles of the established religion, lie naturally felt a strong predilection in its favour, and there was no c ® nsideiation which attached him more to it, than his firm belief, that there was no religion more liberal and tolerant in its spirit ( hear.) It appeared to him, generally, that those civil rights which were claimed by the Catholics, were rights which all the subjects living under the British Constitution might naturally conceive themselves entitled to. While he was ready to express his warmest wishes for a conciliatory ar- rangement, he could not avoid expressing bis sincere regret at some of the resolutions which had been late- ly passed in Ireland. He would leave it to the libe- rality of the House, whether it was not probable, that those resolutions proceeded from thesndlen ebullition and heat of a few wild heads ; and that they were not the sober and deliberate expressions of those men who had always conducted themselves with the ut- most temper and moderation. He was favouiable to the present question, as considering it the first gene- ral question which went to the amelioration of Ire- land. With this view, as well as that of conciliation, he teit happy in supporting the motion of the Noble Marquis. The Archlvshop of CANTERBURY thoug'it, that all those who were of opinion, that the claims might, under some restriiSions be acceded to, would best sspr., s » that opinion by voting In favour of the present m > tir> rt He fear- ed, indeed, tkit it would be generally c mceived that thme who should vote agaii. st it, were ( or shutting the door against all consideration whatever of the subjed — fHiar.;—.

There were certainly difficulties to be surmounted ; hut thare dif- ficulties ought not, in his opinion, to prevent the ( nil con- sideration of the question.

Was rhe w- « lom displayed by our ancestors at ' his. pur- icular period of our Hila ry really entitled to so much admiration ? B'shop Warburton waa, perhaps, the very fi-= r writer who contended, rbr. r the reli- jjon of the. Stuff. whatever it . was. onght to be fenced with privileges, and guarded by the exclution of a) 1 other reli- gion". It was not now con't- mled,' that the Catholics held .^ p'i'i- MV- c intrary rothr < nvid of-' the State, and, therefore, ' there wMs. no jii- r ground for disot- Vifying thetiS. In the pre- ft; n- day, what Irishman can avou? feeling a pride in the vic- tories or a W*: what Englishman or Scotchman ' can avoid feelrntr pride in reading of the exploits of a Gene- ral Hill, or a General. Grahinr; and with what regret must that m m hang hi* head whose fe » ling is, " I belong to a de- grade class from whom no Marlboroughs or' Wellingtons can ever come. I remain, like Gideon's fleece, dry and bar- ren, while fertilizing showers fall all around me, and all the • rest of * he creation rejoices in their influence." He should therefore vote for the present motion I. ord MUI. GRAVF. had fo'ttterly thought the concessions to the Catholic* unsafe; but the dangers of one period were not the dangers of another; and he quite agreed, that it would be politic next Session to consider whether the con- dui9 of the Catholic* was such as rendered it safe to entrust them wish political power. Earl C AMDEN said, that if the present mnrion had not been made, he should have felt it his duty, early in the next Session, to have proteased a similar consideration. The Duke of NORFOLK said, in the oaths required previously to the admission of Members into the two Houses © r Parliament, it had been proposed to « mit the word Ipi'i- tual in tie oath to be administered to Oath, dies:—'" I do declare that no foreign Pince or Potentate hath or ought, to hice sny power or authority, spiritual or temporal, within this realm." Now this word might srill be retained, provid- ed spnif such words ware added to the oath as the follow- ing.:—" that shall in any way fetid to subvert the eatablbh- edVelit- lon." His . Grace announced his intention to move, that ... the Committee of the House shot- id take into its' con- ei. iera/ ion the oath of allegiance a* applkd to th* Raman Cutho'ic." Earl MOIR A said, that n fair and complete consideration of the great an' 1 paramount Cafholrc Question, was all that . fc « d" Befn'r « jiieited by The motion so eloquently'introduced by the Most Noble Marquis; and he really could not con- ceive that resistance could. arise, from auv reasonable quar- tern " gainst it Had they riot every inducement, from the nature ol* rkfrlainwi tbemW ' ves, as wjl as tho nfw'tw concurrent ci'cymstarces of the times, to ctfme to a favour- ah! e conclusion Were they nor informed, by. hfs Majesty's Ministers in that and another Hou e of Par- liameitt. tiiat they were in possession of sealed, packets of in- formation, concerning disturbances not so remote front Lou- don as Ii^ kind. which they were afraid to make public, and therefore voted rbero to the con- ideration of a Secret Com- nirree f Afld did they immediately proceed to examine into ih< disturbances excited in other parts, and refrained from i/ iiiuttiug themselves in making any concessions towards the Catholics ? The violence indeeij or rlii> Resolutions lately- emanat'n,! f am the Meeting at Dublin, had been particular- ly descanted upon with some severity, b;: t were thev to contemplate only the warm proceedings of a few individu- als, ' r d according as they aifled, proceed towards the whole bo ly ?

' i'he chief .' ihteCis- of the present n r. tifcr, was - imply a pledge oI their de'erOiination to give to the Catholic Claims an ailiple and mature delibera- tion during the ensuing Session for the laudable purpose otf quieting in ' he inttri » MJtbe public miud. Viscount SfDMOtTTH, although he had so frequently given his opinion on this si.: l j' Ol, rould not abstain from say- ing a ft w vvord> on the prestpt occasion. If . he had been one whei opposed the raotion < f the 31st January Ut, he al- so felt rt incumbent upon him to oppose the pie^ nt. He was then of opinion, that the, tenipcr of the Catholics of Ireland rendered it unworthy of the dignity of the House to grant'their claims; and no concession ought to be made at the expenre of the honour and dignity of rhe Hou- a. A sverlal ohje^ lion was raken to tbem tfien, that they had ar*. rayed thems^ lve- in th^ armour of Ri^ ht, ans! had a-^ tumed a nitni cing appearance. They might since have kept them- aelves within the pile of tl: e law ; but their intention ami fciind wass'ill ti e same. Heopposed the motion, as pr.- mis- ing a final and satisfatSorv : djnstmenr of their claims, indi- ji eating the utmost extent of unlimited concession; and unless he thought that the degree of concession wl'ich he should 1- e liiel) to grant them w. « such as would bt_- satisfactory to them, he heh! it most, fair and honest, with his limited views lipon this subjeiS, tu oppose the motion at once, and in the bod. He might think that the Irish A& of 179S ought to be operative in eve- y part of the Itii gdem, and that it would be rie- irable to conncft the Roman Catholic Priest with the ' Government ; but before the House could vote for th* pre- sent motion, they ought to be determined to concede the claims in their great and unlimited extent—( HearJ. He was sure the argument of the Noble Marquis went thus far, and contained no single word of condition. The motion itself, indeed, * p « ke much of restriction ; but there was little ol this in the argument, by which ir souls! app - ar ( according t< a certain phrase) that the n- ciprifity was all on one side. ( A laugh). He was not in- ensibleto the condition of the Irish Cathu ics; but the mass of the population of Ireland haj al- ways bcrn forgotten; and the Hou- e heard only of $, 4, or 5.000 000, who were to be conciliated and restored ; o tran- quillity, and who claimed the rights and privileges of Pro- te- tants The exaggeration of the « e numbers, great as it was, was nothing when compared with the exaggeration of thejr condition. The House looked too much at the summit, and too little at the base The conditisn of the Irish was, doubt- less, improving, and the cultivation of the coimuy wa. s cer- tainly in progress; but Noble I. rds deceived themselves if they thought the discontents in Ireland were solely attribut- able to the Catholic restri& ions. The Emancipation of the Irish from gnorance and poverty, was the fir » t object of the wisdom and benevolence of the Legislature. He felt the lorcc of the references to ti t pretloutquesflna, and although it would, perhaps, he more congenial to his min^ to pur a tlireol regntive^ npori the'Noble Marqui^ s motion, yet b* • houid vote for the previous question.— The Noble Lord then proceeded to riecLre, that he could not con- eni to give the unqualified enjoyment of > 11 the privileges df the Srate, without undivided allegiance. It wa « essential that there shauld bs « o irm- rfertuce, po authority of the Pope, in the ! concerns of Ireland; and really as matters were, at ' pfesent IS Conduced, he did not know a country where the See of Rome had mote itiflttince than in it Considerable improve- ment. were therefore necessary, both iti the cultivation and civilization of the great body of the Catholics triumphant This . vas the spirit of he Constitution, and it • |.; AJt . the - Wwdtsffe ItaCet effi ThtfSday ss'n- j The intelligence from Spilin,. in '. b.?. F « nc'l of Iieljnd, where th* influence of the Pope was in consequenc ' gr « ter rVthnl'iM. before he coul- 1 consent te than among anv other Catholics, before he cou' the boon that was now demanded. The Noble Marquis had not said a word on the securities necessary to avert such , dangers;- and for these reasons he should support the pre- j vit'Us question. e The Marquis of LANSDOWNE said, that far advanced . as the Sessi. m of Parliament wn's and the bjis^ ness in which ' it was engigfd of the utmost importance, he was ready . for one, to vote that the Claims of the Catholics should he fatten into immediate consideration. Nothing could serve s « » ac'- cessfuliy to quiet and compose the minds of the people at such a jun, 3ure as the present. He was not preTv. re. 1 as. it h id been apprehended, that the Noble Marquis w.! s to make unlimited concessions, but he would vote for the motion, un- der an impres ion of the pra& icab- hcy of the measure : The Duke of CUV, BERL 4ND shortly observed, that he. was friendly. to ei/ ecy measure ot conciliation ; and hut Jot' the late resolutions of the Catholic Body, which were oPa nature he could not observe without alarm, he should net have felt pauch disinclination to " the present motion.. it The Eatl of LIVERPOOL h's whole difference o opinion from his Noble Friend ( the Marquis Wellesley) re solved itself into the question of the practicability of con cession, consistent with the security of our establishments j;. Church and State; and in this view he should feel it u0- worthy of his own charailer if he acceded to the'moiioii, unless he saw Ills way clearly, and the extent of the con- cessions that would be require! He felt that he should h « ailing an unmanly part were he to meet the question on little shifts and temporary expedients, instead of the broad principles of pol cy and general expedience. There was this distinction, however, that he did not oppose concession on considerations purely religious, connected with the doctrines of the Catholic faith; but with regard to the Oath of Su- premacy, he thongbt it l constitutional ohstacle. The State, as now constituted, was essentially Protestant, not for the exclusive benefit of any one religious party, but for the pro- tection of all se. Jls, and to give the greate t security to the liberty of the whole. He knew that the power of the Pope was rot greater now, but probablv much less tha; r it had been at former periods. There was this consideration, how- ever, that the position in which France now stood, with regard to the Pope, might make the power which he possessed as dangerous to this country as in former times.— Independence on foreign influence was the greatest blessing which the country could enjoy. With these views, and not seeing his way in agreeing to the vote, it was his maxim that a stand should be made m limine; for fo agree to con- sider, was in effect to concede. His main obje< 5tion was to the pledging of the House to an abstract proposition, which was not to be taken into immediate consideration, and wh- ch specified none of the conditions with which concession was to be accompanied, ' Lord DONOUC3HMOR£ said, he had, as it was well known to mar. y nf their Lord « hip » , lived in habits of stria friendship with the great body oT the Catholics; he hid al- ways J> een the strenuous advocate of their cause; and. he did not on the present occasion feel himself less inclined to be so than her. tornre. He complimented the manly manner in winch the Noble Earl who s; oke last had met the qMs; ion ; and confessed he always considered, that consideration in- volved concession ; and he won'd strenuously deprecate the idea of deluding the Catholics % y affording them the one. and withholding from them the other. He adverted to the resolutions of the late Aiyregate Meeting: in Dublin, and was sorry to find they had made to strong an impression as • they seemed to have done on the minds of some Noble Lords; but there would alwiys occur in large public bodies moments of irritation, and it Was not wonderful the Catho- lics should feel a jealousy w. hen they futind re- appointed to their situations the present Ministers, ivho had on all occa- sions shuwri themselves so decidedly as their determined foes. He w > s well aware of the value and importance of concilia. ( Son; and as he thought tbii. measure would very tivateiially tend to it, he'would give it his hearty support. Lord MELVILLE hoped the House would not only come to a consideration ; of the question, but with a deure that such consideration might lead to the beneficial results which the friends to the motion tiattered themselves they m: ght reasonably expert from its being c^- ri- J J » their favour — He " hoped the House would feel it their duty to pursue th « ir own steady course, and not to be led away by any intempe- rate proceedings which might have taken place among rash unadvised men among the Cath dies. He should support the motion. The Earl of DARNI. EV spoke in favour of the Resolution proposed by the Noble Marquis. His Lordship entered info a statement respsfling the Catholics and Protestants in Ire- land. The Catholics had increased considerably of late, and the Protestants had decreased. The Catholics formerly con- sisted of 3-' 000 persons ; of late they had increased to 47,000. The Protestants at first were 17,000; now they were only 10,000. The latter statement was confined to a particular distticl. The Noble Earl observed, that Tie could have fur- nished the House with useful information on the subject, but the lateness of the hoqr prevented him. He had derived great advantage respeifting the affairs of Ireland, from Mr Wakefield's valuable Work, which every person in the coun- try ought to read Lord REDESDALE. said, he had formerly objeSed to a Committee, and had now a greater objection to support the present motion, because he was convinced the claims of the Catholics ought not fo be allowed, unless very strong secu- rities were given. Absolute concession, without restriction, he never could agr e to. He should vote against the motion. Lord GRENVILLE could not givt a silent Yote on the suhjeS : he must express the gratification which he fe. t at the manly manner in which the subject had been brought forward; 4nd if he had any thing co regret, it was that the Resolution did not go the whole length of promising a re- peal of th* Catholic disabilities. In this he was not to be understood as intending to overlook the rights or securities of the Church established by law, and to which hs was de- voted with iealous affetftion; but the manner of bringing forward the measu e was trifling in comparison of the mea- sure itself; and he must rejoice at the result which was now likely to take place. He had been told by a Noble Lord ( we believe the Lord Chancellor), that the safety of the Constitution was involved in their vote ; but which of them was now giving the best proof of attachment to the princi- ples of the Revolution— he who excluded from it four mil- lions of men, or he who would bring them in to share and strengthen it ? There were those who thought the question ought to h « put off without danger, but let them not " lay that flattering uiuAion to their soul " It grew dangerous » s it was delayed. He lamented it had not been settled finally twelve years ago. Since that tim* disconceots niu- t have increased, and it was not strange that mistruBt should now I be found when we made our offers of friendship. The con- t fidence of the Catholics could not grow at once— not as it • would, had their desire been granted twelve years ago, or five, or three, or two, or even more than all wheo- the restriftiohs 1 were taken off. It was most expedient not to lose a moment. 1 he Catholics couljl not be expeded to wait submissively and confidingly for the six or nine months that might pass tj. ll the meeting of Parliament, without some pledge, espe- cia'ly under suih a Ministry, when the Chancellor, the Keeper of the King's conscience, declared, that to comply , with their wishes would be t* sacrifice the constitution j aid when the First Miuistet could net allow of their becom- ing sh rers in the constitution, except by giving np their re- ligion, .' could they be satisfied without some pledge ! At all events, if Parliament gave its voice for them, late event* shewed that they were not to expeift gr » at resistance in ano- ther quarter. The Noble and Learned Ltfc'd ( Redesdale) w ho had objefted so much in detail, had only to send his objections to be discussed in the Committee. It was impos- sible not to express an additional satisfadion at the proof which was now furnished that the measure mutt be evemu- ally successful; and yet this was the . one for which he and other Members af That House had bs n charged with little short of treason against the King and Constitution. Those • srery meu who ros* u> power on the charge now admitted, that th* y had all along thought with him, and yet they had ca- lumniated him and his Noble Friend ( Earl Grey). Here was a new proof also of the good of free discussion. If the question could have yielded to the votes of great majorities is that House, to other influence, or to a popular cry, it rpiu « 4ave perished; bat it was supported, and it was now was ip- o. ihis. Coa-' butiort that f « ur millions of men were about to he admitted by the vote of this ui rht. Earl STANHOPE rose and ' raid, that if there were doubts concerning the votes on » iiis question, h- held it v.^ v ! fair to carch pers cuter, in their Own traps, ( a tanvh) when Ve who wss - of a cliff- rent op nion, had the law on his side.

Monday, July 5, THE CATHOLIC BOARD. Satutday an Extraordinary Meeting of the Catholic Board was held, in consequence of the j fabrication that appeared lately in the London Courier, and to disclaim the monstrous and pro- fligate Falsehood therein stated. The Board in- dicate an apprehension, that such a design may be . precursory of hostile schemes against the Ro man Catholics, and call for periodical meetings of their Body in consequence, in an advertisement published in a Morning Paper of this day. Mr. Irwin, who is one of the Governors of the County of Sligo. has addressed a Letter to the Gentlemen hsua'ly composing the Grand Jury Pantiel of that County, in which he'suggests to . them the expediency of calling a Meeting of the Protestant Freeholders, for the purpose of request- ing their Representatives in Parliament to attend to the j> rfterv9t: on of the present Constitution, and the secu- rity nf the* Protestant establishment.

COMMERCIAL CHRONICLE COMMERCIAL REPORT. f From tie Betfait MtniUy Magazine.'] The voice of the people in England, nearly utiammoin against the Orders in Council, has at last hp'- n h^ ard. TM> committees from the com- ITierei d and marmfaflnring distrifts have adduced a valuable and clpar h" dv of evidence at the bars of bo'h Houses rf Parliament, in which it appears, according to Herrv Bronpham's speech, that the scarcity of money arising from had trade has been found to press mnch more heavily than the scar, city and high prices of provisions. It is more dif. ficnlt to pr< cure the money to purchase, than to find supplies of provisions. A greater ease of commercial distress, than that at present existing in England, has scarcely ever been made cut— Nor have the rnueher accents of the unenlightened Ltrdditef been wi'hout their effwft in the dflirvea. tion of national distress, and in producing the alarms, which have induced the present Minister*, powerful on'y in trick and finesse, cased as thev are in selfish motives, and impenetrable, except only to fear, to put on the appearance of making cor. ces- ions. At first public erpeflations were great, that by a relinquishment of the system of the Orders, trade would be restored by'a conciliation with Ametica, but other matters yet remain to be discussed with the Americans, a* to the right of search, and the impressing of sailors ; and concessions tardidly grnrted after so many causes < f irritation, do not al. wavs at once pi > uce conciliati' n. To the appre- hension?, hat the United States may have already determined on more direft hostility on taising the ' embargo, we havi to add ' he d'ubts, whether vhen the proposed suspension shall be known, at the ether ' ide of ihe Atlantic, the terms will meet the approbation of the American government, and thus the hones of a restoration of trade are still rendered d<#> B'iful. Since lie commencement of this Magazine, a waroirg voice has been raised in these reports, against the Orders in Council, but our merchants and in trufaftuieis were deaf, and fenced in apa- ; thy, they disregarded the calls of true policy— The condufl of the linen- drapers at Armagh, at thr cl" sr of ( he year 1608, stamps a charafler on our public spirit not easily to be effaced, when a submission to men in authority prevented a decla- ration against those orders, the impolicy of which is now generally avowed. Or. e trait in the national distress in England, is discovered in the fa£>, that it has been proved in evidence, that the new cutlery of Sheffield has been pledged in large quantities with the pawnbrokers in London. When manufaflurers submi; to the exorbitant interest charged by pawnbrokers, great indeed must be the distress. The linen tra, lu of this country is without amcrjdrrent nd a very dull market in Dublin is eipetfed. Tre hopes entertained of an improve, ment through the alteration of the Orders in Coun- cil, will be much more likely to operate in raising the prices in- the brown markets, than in tending to increase the sale of the bleached goods. The expectation of conciliaiion with America is likely to be more operative in die former than in the lat- ter c;: se. The sale of guineas is now clandestine, as was to be expefled from the operation of the late a< 3 of Parliament. Guineas were lately selling in Dublin at a prpminm of per piece, but the ti'^ nsiflion there, and in other places, must be pri- vate, and on the mutual honour, or the mutual interest of the buyer and seller, to keep it secret. BRISTOL ELECTION. BRISTOL, JUNE SO.— This city at present ex- hibits a scene of the utmost confusion, arising fir m a c r ested eledior. It was generally ex- pefted that Mi. R. H. Davis wotiM have been re- turned without opposition ; hut Mr. Hunt having declared himself a candidate, many of the lower ] classes espoused his cause. There was no polling yesterday, the whrle day being occupied by speeches a" d necessary arrangements. At the hustings, Mr. Hum declared his determination not to resign while a freeman would poll for him, and insisted on all the oaths being administered to the eleflots. Theie were veiy seiious riots yesterday ; the mob broke all the windows of the White Lion Inn and the adjoining houses, and even proceeded 1 to untile the ro^ f and throw the tiles on the cou- stables. Many persons have received severe eon- tusii ns, and have been carried to the Infirmaiy.— It is rr. tich to be regretted, that the regularity and peaceable demeanor with wliich our eledlions weie formerly condufied, are now totally disre- aaided. Notwithstanding the exertions of Mr. liavis's, Mr. Protheroe's, and Sir S. Rom lly's ' friends to prevent a recurrence of the outtrges! hich fndangered Mr. Bathurst's life at a la- e Fleflion, the procession on SaturJay was assa^' d by vollies of mud, stones, d » .< d cats, & c. Mr Davis fortunately . seined unhurt, exceot from one stone w. hich struck his arm. A quarter past three o'clock Mr. Davis is about twenty a- head of Mr. Hunt. The following is ' it E^' raft op a letter dated Wednesday last :— « As I feared yesterday, our disturbances were opW begin. No sooner had the poll closed at five o'clock, than the mob proceed- ed to a h" U? e used by Mr. Davis's Committee. This they entirely gntted. Another party pro- ceeded to the Trout Tavern, which shared the same fate, as did two or three others. After wreaking their vengeance upon the few remain- ing panes or bits of glass at the White Lion, they proceeded up Park- street to Berkeley- square, when Alderman Daniel's mansion suffered in every story. But it was upon Mr. Davis's own residence that their fury was principally to be vented. Mr. Davis had returned peaceably home, and was sittinp- in the midst of his family, when, about eight o'clock, 500 of the mob burst into the court before his house, and destroyed every gate, post, shrub, and pane of glass, within their reach; fortunately the mischief rested here. His valua- ble colleflion of piftures, being in rooms behind his house, escaped their ravages. While these things were go'ng on, several of his friends waited upon the Mayor to inform him of these proceed- ings, and to call upon him for assistance. Tfiere were about 70 of the constables collefled at the Council- house and the Mansiop- house; but in the very face of the Magistrates and his officers, the Council house again received a volley, which broke down the doors and shutters, which alone, from the preceding day's adventures, kept them from the pitiless storm. The riot act was at last read, and some military assistance obtained, and about SO of the depredators are secured. A troop of the Scotch Greys, under Gen. Oswald, arrived about nine, at Mr. Davis's at Clifton, and, soon after, a company of the West Middlesex Militia. The Poll is this day proceeding, and a body of the Volunteers are in the interior of our Exchange, ready to act,- if wanted, as soon as the poll closes. State of the poll at the close yesterday : — Davis 210 Hunt SO Hunt has not polled to- day more than 32.— Davis's men come up faster than they can be sworn." . It is stated, that* Mr7kemble has withdrawn himself from Covent- garden Theatre, both as Aflor and Manager; aud that Mr. Fawcett is to succeed him next season in the latter capacity. Mr. K.' s resignation is said to be in consequence of his demand of an increase of salary, both as Manager and as Aflor, having been refused. Mr. K.' s salary as an aflor only, at Covent- garden Theatre, was 36/. per week ; he demanded it to be increased to 60/ per week, with the addition of 201, per night for every performance beyonJ three, so that in case of a piece having a run, his sa! a- y for iHe time would, in faff, be 120/. a- « - eek! B - sides this, he demanded a material increase of salary as Manager, and a considerable addition to the sum which he annually received in lieu of a ' benefit. It was the non- compliance of Mr. Harris with these reasonable demands, that determined Mr. Kemble to take his leave of Covent- garden i heatrft. and to dispose ot the propel ty he has in' that concern.

GENERAL OBSIR VATIONS — Now the pelisse r « po » esaaf » - Iy in the cedar press, and the velvet and fur are embued with spicy odours, the preservatives of Turkey leather, cimphire, and cedar shavings, which defend their warm and rich tex- ture from the destructive moth, till winter shall again resume her frozen empire. To these have succeeded the spencer, the mantilla, and the scarf shawl; the former of these articles is most in favour for walking, with a bonnet of the same, bent over the forehead, and the Sower transferred from beneath to the front, or round the crown of the bonnet; but the most favourite orilamentii a long white ostrich feather. % he gowns are made much the same as last month, can* aisting chiefly of French cambrics or Indian muslins for half- dress; and coloured muslin*, crapes, Opera nets, gossamer sa- tin!, and French sarsne'S, for evening parties. Tl'C dressing and disposing the hair yet mainta'na its favour and preference in the style adopted by King Charles's beau- tics, and seems jiec- uliarly suited to th a English countenance.

Stays are now very much thrown aside ; and the exquisite ' contour of a frie Grecian form is now rtn Ion rer. by being sreel < clad, di » i; uised in such imuen- trahle and hideous armnu". v The favourire colours are blue, lilac, jonquil, Pomona, and pale willeiw green. ENGLISH AGRICULTURAL REPORT. The Wheats just getting into hloom are described in the Reports, from most parts of the country, a> looking particu- larly well. The con- inued winds and rain have not yet had an unfavourable eflefl; on the contrary, the rains hav • been beneficial to the c'irn, and an early harvest is expected. The crops appear large and bulky, the Wheat in particular, on the best soils, and very little laid. Beans and peas, and a'! other crops, are said to ba good, oats excepted, which are in many parts bad. Hay harvest, near London, is about half completed, the crop large, and the greater part well preserved. The clo- vers and artificial gras* es, generally, either making or upon the ground, are carted. No want of hands. Potatoe planting nearly finished; and the largest extent of ground planted throughout the island, it is supposed ever be- fore known. Turnip sowing is not yet finished— the drill but little practised for turnips in the south- eastern counties. Hops in a promising state— no defedt reported. Same of the seed crops A large breadth of cole seed in E sex. The fruit has suffered m v.' ialiy from cold and blighting winds bu' the cherries most of all, being, in many parts, entirely cut off in the b'oom. The fallows work well. The stock of old Whe* t in the country universally said to be at a very low ebl , and is well known to have been spar- ed by a variety of substitutes and admixtures in the br. ad, more especially in tl. e Metropolis, in which potatoes have supplied a considerable share— very great want, in the course of the next two months, i< expected by persons of the best information. Wo:> l has rather a brisker sale, but the stock in the growers'hands » trl very large. Cattle of all descripf ions, fat and lean, excessive dear— lambs scarce. C" Ws i' variably at a high price. Store pigs form an exception, feeing stil! lower in price.
