iO REPORT FROM THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON f courts of the highest legal authority. A special report, founded " on the " various acts of the corporation of Limerick," has been presented to the House of Commons. From the suppression of the corporate records, as well as from the conduct of the corporation, Your Committee consider a le- gislative remedy to be indispensably necessary. Your Committee well know with how much jealousy such interpositions of the legislature are regarded ; but they feel confident that, on a judicial review of the whole case, when its importance is considered with reference to the fair assessment, and ultimate security of public money, to the impartial administration of the laws, to the respect and authority of the magistracy, to the efficiency of the police, and above all to the happiness of between sixty and seventy thousand of His Majesty's subjects; the legislature will feel it right to interfere, and put an end to the abuses on which Your Committee have felt it their duty to report. To restore the administration of the city to its original state, to enforce an open system of account for revenues appropri- ated to public objects, to ensure the strict application of those revenues to the uses for which they were destined, to give an easy and effectual remedy in cases of abuse, and to ensure fin equal enjoyment of legal rights by all who are intitled to claim them; to relieve a suffering people from severe and oppressive taxation,— such are the objects which Your Committee con- sider worthy of the attention of Parliament. They have gone minutely into the investigation of all the facts of the case ; they have examined all the witnesses brought before them ; the parties charged in the special report of 1820, have had a full opportunity of making their defence. Your Committee feel the greater confidence in presenting this Report, because they are satisfied that there never was a moment when Parliament were less disposed than at the present, to leave one single complaint from the people of Ireland unheard, or one grievance without redress. 31 July 1822.
