Petition respecting Labourers Wages.

A Petition of John H. Moggridge was presented, and read; setting forth, That for twenty years past the Petitioner has been an acting Magistrate for the county of Monmouth, in the mineral and other landed property of which he is materially interested, as well as in that of the adjoining county of Glamorgan, for which he has also been long in the commission of the peace; and as being the only resident Magistrate in the upper division of the hundred in which he lives not personally engaged in the trade thereof, has had and still has numberless opportunities of truly and intimately knowing the state and circumstances of the vast labouring population situated therein, and in the adjoining mining districts of those counties; that great as certainly is the pressure of the times upon the labouring classes, the Petitioner is thoroughly convinced that the distress arising therefrom is grievously increased, and the peace of the country greatly endangered by the pernicious practice which of late has too generally obtained, of master's paying their workmen in goods instead of in money, which the Petitioner has reason to know from his own personal knowledge; that, with the exception of one only instance, has been the cause of all the disturbances of the public peace which have occasionally convulsed the mining district in which the Petitioner resides; and that although this mischievous and oppressive practice was, by the Acts of 57 Geo. 3, c. 122, and 58 Geo. 3, c. 51, repressed, and for a time nearly annihilated, the Petitioner regrets to add, has of late, both in the iron works and collieries of his neighbourhood, been generally renewed, and is at this present time enforced with greater rigour and to a greater extent than ever; and that in consequence of this monopoly of the custom of their workmen, the regular tradesman and shopkeeper have been unable to carry on their concerns without giving a ruinous and fatal credit; that various arts and subterfuges are had recourse to in order to evade the laws prohibiting this pernicious practice, and to avoid their penalties, but that the method adopted of late, with complete success, is for the master to appeal from the decision of the convicting Magistrates to the quarter sessions (as legally entitled to do), trusting to the utter inability of the half-starved complainant to encounter the persecution which generally follows a complaint, and expenses and loss of time at present necessary to support the conviction; the Petitioner therefore, alike impressed with a sense of the urgent necessity of the case, due regard to the dictates of humanity and justice, and to the peace and tranquillity of the country, humbly but earnestly implores the prompt interference of Parliament on behalf of the industrious classes of society; and in particular, that during the present session, and as early in the same as may be, as far as concerns the House, it may be enacted, that in order to assure the practical protection of equal-handed justice to the poor as well as the rich, in the execution of the laws of the realm, in all cases of appeal from the convictions of Magistrates, in matters of dispute regarding wages between the masters and workmen, shall be subject to the same rules, in every respect, as similar cases heard and determined by Magistrates out of sessions; and further praying, that the various laws relating to the payment of the wages of workmen may be speedily taken into the most serious consideration of the House, with a view to their consolidation, equalization and uniform application of all trades generally, with such alterations and additions as to the wisdom of the House may seem best calculated to insure to the British labourer, practically and effectually the full payment of his stipulated wages in money, without deduction, evasion or delay, and in no other way whatever.

Ordered, That the said Petition do lie upon the Table.

Petitions complaining of Distress.

A Petition of Owners and Occupiers of lands and other Inhabitants of the several parishes within the division of Kingsclere, in the county of Southampton;-and, of Parishioners of the out parish of Leominster, in the county of Hereford,-were presented, and read; praying, That the House will take the deplorable state of the Nation into their most earnest and immediate consideration, and, laying aside all prejudice or preconceived opinions, to inquire into all the causes of those unprecedented difficulties which threaten, if no speedy remedy be found, to overwhelm the poor, the middle classes, and the affluent in one common ruin.

And the said Petitions were ordered to lie upon the Table; and to be printed.

Petitions against Renewal of East India Charter.

Petition for removal of Civil Disabilities in Galway.

A Petition of the Landowners, Merchants, Traders, Freeholders, and Inhabitants of the town and county of the town of Galway, was presented, and read; setting forth, That by a Statute passed in the fourth year of his late Majesty George the First, c. 15, s. 5, all persons who do or shall come to practise trade in the town of Galway, are declared free of the Corporation thereof without paying any fine for the same, but that the general boon thus conferred was rendered almost nugatory by a subsequent section, which confined the benefit of such freedom to persons professing the Protestant religion for a period of seven years, taking however the oaths of Abjuration and Supremacy, and subscribing the declaration against Transubstantiation as by law then enjoined; that by the Relief Bill lately passed by the Legislature, the necessity of taking the oaths of Abjuration and Supremacy, and subscribing the declaration against Transubstantiation is altogether dispensed with, leaving however the said restriction of seven years Protestantism unrepealed; that, contrary to the spirit and intention of said last-mentioned Statutes, as expressed in the House at the time of its enactment, the extension to Roman Catholics of all privileges enjoyed by Protestants, the Roman Catholics of Galway are thus an isolated instance of exclusion from civil rights on account of religion, by reason whereof a cause of discontent is generated, feelings of discord are engendered between citizens of different communions, and, without a shadow of just ground, an odious distinction, prejudicial to public peace and private intercourse, is maintained in Galway alone of all the British dominions; that this distinction is the more galling on account of the proverbial loyalty of the Petitioners in revolving centuries, unchanged during the worst times of rebellion and persecution; that in the year 1641 the ancestors of the Petitioners raised a regiment for the service of the State; that in the year 1798 the fathers of the Petitioners amply contributed by their purses and persons to the support of Government, and under the present Lord Donoughmore, without the aid of a single soldier, maintained the garrison; that in the years 1819 and 1820, when the surrounding country was in a blaze of insurrection, not a whisper of discontent was heard within their precincts, and yet that civil disabilities continue to be imposed on a large class of the Petitioners on account of a conscientious adherence to religious belief; that the continuance of such disabilities is the more grievous by reason of the Petitioners being outcasts from the gracious boon of the last Session, while their pecuniary contributions to the State have been relatively unequalled; that the Revenue of the district has gradually augmented in nine years from 32,000£. to 114,000£., leaving a clear increase of 82,000£., and the return of the Petitioners for loyalty, thus active and unchanging, for sacrifices and contributions ample beyond parallel, is the exclusion of the Roman Catholic from those rights which the Protestant enjoys, has long enjoyed, and is justly entitled to; that the Petitioners rely with confidence on the wisdom and justice of the House, now that perfect freedom is enjoyed to the utmost verge of the British Empire; that they will not allow a stigma so unjust and so anomalous to remain on His Majesty's faithful subjects of Galway; and praying, That the House will be graciously pleased to explain or amend the said recited Statutes, so as to extend to Roman Catholics the same right of admission to the freedom of the said Corporation as is now enjoyed by Protestants.

Ordered, That the said Petition do lie upon the Table; and be printed.

And the previous Question being proposed, That that Question be now put:-The said previous Question and Motion were severally, with leave of the House, withdrawn.
