Petition against Tolls at Markets and Fairs (Ireland.)

A Petition of John Brady of Bridge-street, in the town of Cavan, was presented, and read; setting forth, That the Petitioner, as a freeholder of the county and an inhabitant of the town of Cavan, is interested in the prosperity and well-being of its inhabitants; the Petitioner can with truth assert that they are not in such happy condition at present, owing chiefly to the exorbitant levying of what Petitioner believes to be illegal toll; the country people having ascertained that the toll farmer compelled them not only to pay toll on articles not liable thereto, but charged excessively on such commodities as were liable, formed a determination to resist their demands generally, the consequence of which is, that their fairs and markets, instead of presenting the busy hum of social traffic, may be likened to the awful scene of civil warfare, the tollmen, the magistracy and the police on one side, and the country-people on the other; consequently the Petitioner most respectfully submits, that prosperity must be greatly retarded while their social system remains in such a disordered state; the Petitioner could mention many melancholy consequences resulting from toll conflicts, but does not wish to be prolix; the Petitioner therefore most humbly implores the House to interpose some wholesome legislative remedy to such alarming evils, by defining the law respecting toll, or abolishing such a public nuisance alto gether, and thereby save the industrious and well-disposed people of that county from witnessing such revolting scenes henceforth.

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

Petition against Renewal of East India Charter.

A Petition of Merchants, Manufacturers, and other Inhabitants of the town of Birmingham, was presented, and read; praying, That the House will be pleased not to sanction any measure for granting to the East India Company any renewal of their Charter, which shall contain privileges that may be incompatible with the important objects desired by the Petitioners; and that the Petitioners may be heard at the bar of the House, by counsel, against the renewal of any such Charter.

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

Petition complaining of Distress in the Ribbon Trade.

A Petition of the respectable Inhabitants and Weavers of Ribbons in Nuneaton, the hamlets of Attleborough and Stocking ford, in the said parish of Nuneaton, and Chilvers Coton, in the county of Warwick, was presented, and read; complaining of their distress, and setting forth, That the Petitioners beg leave to point out to the House, that the earliest remedy to give them the most efficacious and permanent relief, would be fair wages for their labour, to enable them to subsist upon, and give the manufacturers an opportunity, by fair competition, to drive the foreign manufacturers from our home-market; and in case of failure, the Petitioners implore the House to depart from the partial system of free trade, which has brought so many evils upon them.

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

Leave of Absence.

Ordered, That Mr. Prittie have leave of absence for a month, to attend the Assizes.

Ordered, That Mr. Fynes Clinton have leave of absence for a month, to go the Circuit.

Ordered, That General O'Neill have leave of absence for a month, on account of ill health.

Ordered, That Mr. Boyd have leave of absence for a month, on account of ill health.

Petition for removing Disabilities affecting the Jews.

A Petition of several natural-born subjects of His Majesty professing the Jewish religion, resident in Liverpool, was presented, and read; setting forth, That the Petitioners are severally natural-born subjects of His Majesty, professing the Jewish religion; that the Petitioners have witnessed, with the highest gratification, the relief recently afforded by Parliament to those classes of His Majesty's subjects who heretofore were, by reason of their peculiar religious opinions, excluded from civil offices and employments; but that the Petitioners apprehend, that the measures thus intended for the general benefit of His Majesty's subjects dissenting from the Established Church of this realm, so far from improving the civil condition of the Petitioners, may be so construed as to impose upon them further restraints and disabilities; that in an Act passed during the Session of Parliament held in the ninth year of the reign of His present Majesty, for the repeal of certain provisions affecting the qualification of certain offices and employments (and which Act was passed for the relief of Dissenters from the Established Church), a form of declaration is directed to be made and subscribed by all persons desirous of availing themselves of the benefit of that Act, which declaration purports and is expressed to be made "on the true faith of a Christian;" that similar restrictive words are contained in the oath of abjuration; that the phrase "upon the true faith of a Christian," contained in the said declaration and oath respectively, constitutes the sole ground for the various civil disabilities and incapacities which affect the Petitioners, under the Acts imposing the said declaration and oath, the Petitioners being fully prepared to subscribe to the same in the spirit and intent thereof, and the Petitioners thus remain the only class of individuals in the community who will not participate in the general benefit resulting from the relief afforded to all others of His Majesty's subjects, not being members of the Established Church; that persons professing the Jewish religion are permitted in all courts of justice to take the requisite oaths, whether as jurors or witnesses, on the Old Testament only, but doubts have been entertained whether, in qualifying for offices, the Petitioners can be allowed to take the requisite oaths in the same mode, and it is expedient that such doubts should be removed; that the Petitioners, with the utmost deference, submit, that the invariable loyalty and good conduct of the Jewish community entitle them to look to the legislature for an equal measure of liberality and indulgence to that dispensed in the two last Sessions of Parliament in favour of both Protestant and Roman Catholic Dissenters; they therefore most humbly pray, That the House will take into favourable consideration the peculiar grievances of the Petitioners, and will adopt such legislative measures for the removal thereof as to the House in its wisdom shall seem meet.

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

Petitions complaining of distressed state of the Shipping Interest.

A Petition of Ship-owners residing at Maryport and its vicinity, in the county of Cumberland, was presented, and read; setting forth, That the Petitioners have long suffered, and are still suffering, under difficulties and privations, which, far from being alleviated by the hand of time, or by some legislative interference of the House, have gone on progressively increasing, until the Petitioners are at this time reduced nearly to insolvency; that for a number of years the Petitioners have observed with sincere regret, that, during each Session of Parliament, when any Member of the House brought the distresses of the Shipping Interest of this great Kingdom under its consideration, with a view of obtaining some relief, that Members of the Administration came forward with such statements as induced the House to believe, that the Shipping Interest of the United Kingdom was in a prosperous state, and consequently to silence all further inquiry; the Petitioners feel assured, that though those statements might, abstractedly considered, be correct of themselves, yet they did not in the least prove that this interest was prosperous, or that the owners of such property derived any advantage whatever therefrom; that the Petitioners believe, that the cause of their distress proceeds from the altered state of the currency of the country, and from the removal of those legislative enactments for the protection of the Shipping of Great Britain against that of other nations, which alterations have had the effect of rendering it totally impossible for the Petitioners to compete with foreigners; the Petitioners therefore pray, as on a former occasion, that the House will be pleased, immediately after the meeting of Parliament, to take this great branch of our national industry into consideration, and call and examine witnesses at the bar of the House touching the facts of this important interest, and that the House will afford such protection and relief as the case may require.

A Petition of Ship-owners of the town and port of Whitby, in the north riding of the county of York, was also presented, and read; setting forth, That the Petitioners regret the imperious necessity which compels them again to apply to the House for relief from those distresses under which they have so long been suffering, and which time, instead of alleviating, has only rendered more acute and overwhelming; that the Petitioners are fully persuaded, that these distresses may, in a great measure, be attributed to the alterations in our foreign policy, and especially in the Navigation Laws, which raised our commercial marine to its highest degree of prosperity; that amidst the various interests of the country, the British Ship-owner is at least entitled to an equal measure of protection with the rest of His Majesty's subjects, particularly when the vast importance of the Shipping Interest to a great commercial nation is considered; that the tonnage returns laid before the House, by means of which it has been attempted to prove that the Shipping Interest of this country is in a flourishing condition, by no means afford proofs of remunerative employment, as the Petitioners can most unhesitatingly assert; that so far from any profit being realized from the employment of their ships, in spite of all their exertions and every possible economy, they in most instances sustain a heavy loss; that the consequences of this distress are not felt by the Ship-owner alone, but that all the numerous trades in a populous sea-port, which are completely dependent upon shipping for employment, are of necessity in an equal state of embarrassment and distress; that previous to the year 1826 there were eight different ship-building establishments and seven graving-docks generally in full operation, giving employment to upwards of one thousand men; since that period (so great has been the depression in every branch of trade connected with shipping) three of these establishments have been given up, two others are on the point of being abandoned, and the remainder must inevitably share the same fate, unless some measures can be adopted by the House to restore prosperity to the Shipping Interest; that during the last year the tonnage belonging to that port has most materially decreased; under these alarming circumstances the Petitioners are once more induced to make a solemn appeal to the justice of the House, and to pray that the House will take their case into immediate and most serious consideration, and devise some remedy by which their present distress may be relieved, and the commercial Marine of this country preserved from otherwise inevitable ruin.

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

Papers respecting Coinage, ordered.

Ordered, That there be laid before this House, a Copy of any Minute or Entry that may appear upon the Order Books at the Treasury, between the date of the Resolution of the House of Commons of the 20th October 1696, and the final passing of the Recoinage Act in 1699, under which the Receivers and Collectors of the Taxes and Revenues may have been authorized to take Silver, in payment of Taxes at a lower value than the standard value.

Ordered, That there be laid before this House, a Copy of the Order of the Commissioners of the Treasury of 23d July 1773, respecting the Regulations under which the Officers of the Mint were required to receive the Guineas; Half-Guineas and Quarter-Guineas, then in circulation; distinguishing the rate under which the Receivers and Collectors of the Public Revenue were authorized to receive them, in payment of Taxes, from the rate under which they were to be admitted as the legal coin of the realm.

Petition against Hawkers vending Tea.

A Petition of several Tea-dealers and Grocers, residents in the cities of Bath and Wells, and county of Somerset, was presented, and read; setting forth, That the Petitioners are established in business as tea-dealers and grocers, and bear those public burthens and pay those rates which men settled in business are obliged to bear and to pay; that the object of the Petitioners presenting themselves before the House on the present occasion, is to entreat the protection of the House against the illegal traffic of a very numerous and increasing body of men who are engrossing the sale of tea, and who contribute no proportionate share towards those burthens and other rates to which the Petitioners have just alluded; that the men whom the Petitioners represent to the House, as engrossing the sale of this commodity, are Scotch and other hawkers, who sell it daily in every city, town and village throughout the kingdom; that the Petitioners are aware that an Act already exists against hawking tea, and which was no doubt passed for the protection of the regular dealer, against the mischievous encroachments of such as might illegally injure his trade; that Act however, unfortunately for the regular and settled dealer in tea, affords him no protection whatever, as the traffic of these hawkers does not come strictly within the letter of the Act, in consequence of their sheltering themselves from its penalties by their only delivering, as they term it, that tea that was ordered on the preceding call; that the Petitioners, by this evasion of its penalties, have only the existence of an Act in their favour without its protection, and they consequently entreat the House that the same friendly disposition towards their interest, which was displayed in passing the Act which at present exists, may still be manifested in so amending it, as to render it efficient for the purpose for which it was intended; that the Petitioners have no wish to interfere with the industrious habits or honest exertions of any class of His Majesty's subjects; they beg, however, to represent to the House the necessity of an equalization of taxation on all those who deal in the same commodity, and that the Scotch or other hawker, who supplies with tea, in the course of one week, the residents of six or eight market towns and of as many villages, should be subjected to the same taxation at least as the settled dealer, whose custom is necessarily limited to his shop sale; that this, or some such enactment, which the wisdom of the House will be better able to devise, against vending or delivering tea but in a shop, under a heavy penalty against the vender as well as the receiver, would amount to that protection which they so earnestly entreat; at all events it would compel a competition, from which the Petitioners would not shrink, instead of being subjected as they are to the effect of an underhand and illegal traffic, by which they are deprived of that profit they humbly conceive to be their right, as they are heavily rated to support the burthens of their respective neighbourhoods and parishes, and which are unhappily yearly increasing, while the means of meeting them, from the above cause, are daily on the decrease.

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

Petition respecting Labourers Wages.

A Petition of several Inhabitants of Darlaston, in the county of Stafford, was presented, and read; praying, That the House, with the concurrence of the other branches of the Legislature, will be pleased to amend the Laws between masters and servants, so as effectually to put a stop to the illicit practice of paying servants wages otherwise than in money.

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

A Petition of several Inhabitants of the borough of Southwark, and places adjacent, was presented, and read; praying the House to take the present high Imposts on sea-borne Coals into their most serious consideration; and to pass an Act to allow the consumption of Inland Coal in the metropolis on equitable terms, and that in future all Coal Dealers may be obliged to sell the article by weight, instead of measure.

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

Petition for abolishing Tithes.

A Petition of several Inhabitants of the town of Holt, in the county of Norfolk, and its vicinity, was presented, and read; setting forth, That the Petitioners, impressed with a persuasion that tithes constitute a tyrannical innovation, imposed on mankind on the decline of Christianity, humbly request permission respectfully to state to the House upon what principles they consider it their duty importunately to urge the necessity of the abolition of tithes in the United Kingdom of England and Ireland, the Petitioners conscientiously disclaim any particular local reference or personal reflection against individual tithe-holders, their shafts being levelled not at persons, but at the general system of tithes, while they deplore that many worthy clergymen are not more honourably provided for, aware that, since the introduction of the Christian dispensation, the tithes, which were originally a voluntary offering, sometimes given to the poor, at other times to the church, were not imperiously claimed by priests exclusively, under the sanction of the Pope, until the execrable reign of King John; while the Petitioners wonder that such a popish abuse should have been so long tolerated by Protestants, they at length unitedly pray for their abolition, because they have proved a continual source of the most inveterate feuds between the clergy and the laity, and between Protestants and Papists.

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