PRAYERS.

Petition for abolishing unnecessary Oaths.

The House being informed that the Sheriffs of the city of London attended at the door, they were called in; and at the bar presented to the House,-A Petition of the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Commons of the City of London, in Common Council assembled:-And then they withdrew.

And the said Petition was read; setting forth, That, being deeply sensible of the importance and solemnity of an Oath, and of the injurious tendency of administering Oaths unnecessarily, or on comparatively trivial occasions, which only weakens their security, the Petitioners beg respectfully to draw the attention of the House to the Oaths they are required to take by various Acts of Parliament; that the Petitioners are required to make, on their admission to office, a Declaration, under the Act of Parliament passed in the ninth year of the reign of his late Majesty, c. 17, to take the customary Oath of a Common Councilman, and, within six months after, the Oaths of Allegiance, Supremacy and Abjuration; that the Petitioners conceive the clause in the Oath of Abjuration, 6 Geo. 3, c. 53, against the Pretender and his successors, to be useless and unnecessary, that family, by lapse of time, being extinct or unknown; that the Petitioners, deeply impressed with the injurious and demoralizing tendency of the too frequent or frivolous use of Oaths, respectfully entreat the attention of the House to the opinion of the late Archdeacon Paley (in which the Petitioners fully concur), who considered "that the levity and frequency with which an Oath is administered to have brought about a general inadvertency to the obligation of Oaths, which, both in a religious and political view, is much to be lamented, and it merits public consideration, whether the requiring of Oaths on so many occasions, especially in the Customs, and in the qualifications of the petty officers, has any other effect than to make them cheap in the eyes of the people;" the Petitioners therefore humbly pray to be relieved from the objectionable clause against the Pretender in the Oath of Abjuration, and respectfully entreat the attention of the House to the subject of Oaths generally, with the view of abolishing all unnecessary Oaths.

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

Committee on Holyhead Roads Bill

Ordered, That Mr. Western do carry the Bill to the Lords; and acquaint them, that this House hath agreed to the same, with some Amendments; to which Amendments this House doth desire the concurrence of their Lordships.

Ordered, That Mr. Charles Pallmer do carry the Bill to the Lords, and desire their concurrence.

Petition against Vice and Profanation.

A Petition of the Minister, Chapelwarden and Congregation of Tavistock Parochial Chapel, Drury-lane, in the parish of Saint Martin-in-the-Fields, was presented, and read; praying the House to adopt any and every measure which the wisdom of God may dictate, and which the Petitioners in their behalf devoutly implore, for the furtherance of piety and virtue, the discontinuance of vice of every kind, and more especially of that crying sin, the profanation of the Lord's Day, now threatening the welfare and safety of the British dominions; and the Petitioners humbly request, with all suitable deference, permission to recommend the setting about a national reformation, by individual repentance, and by such acts of legislation, that rulers may become not a terror to the good, but unto the evil.

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

Petitionsagainst Duties on Stamps, &c. (Ireland.)

A Petition of Inhabitants of the united parishes of Portarlington, Killenard and Emo, in the Queen's County;- and, of the Corporation of Shoemakers or Guild of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Dublin,-were presented, and read; praying, That the intended measures for increasing Stamp Duties in Ireland, and assimilating them to those of England, as also the projected increase of Duty on Irish Spirits and Irish-grown Tobacco, may be rejected by the House, and may not pass into a law.

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

Petition respecting Inventory Duty (Scotland.)

A Petition of the Lord Provost, Magistrates and Town Council of the city and royal burgh of Perth, was presented, and read; setting forth, That the Petitioners, as representing a community of upwards of 20,000 inhabitants, feel themselves called on most humbly to solicit the attention of the House to the Duty on moveable estates of persons deceased in Scotland, than which they conceive no existing tax more oppressive, obnoxious, unequal or inquisitorial, and which arise principally from the manner in which the same has been levied in Scotland, without certainly increasing the public revenue; the Petitioners humbly trust, therefore, that the House will be pleased to investigate the matter complained of, and that they will be pleased to substitute, in levying the before-mentioned tax, more practical and simple rules in place of those which do now exist, and which appear to them so glaringly impolitic; and praying the House to take this matter under consideration, and to grant such relief as may seem proper.

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

Petition for repeal of Stamp Duty on Receipts.

A Petition of Merchants, Tradesmen, Shopkeepers and other Inhabitants of Gainsburgh, was presented, and read; setting forth, That the Tax upon Receipts for sums of money under ten pounds is inconvenient and annoying to persons in business to the highest possible degree, indeed so much so to many retail tradesmen, that, from the hurry of business, they sometimes find it impossible to comply with the Act of Parliament, and are consequently subjected to the artifices of the unprincipled informer; and praying, That the House will be pleased to repeal the Duties at present attached to Receipts for sums of money under ten pounds, namely Two-penny and Threepenny Stamps.

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

Petition for Reform of Parliament.

A Petition of Free Burgesses of Colchester, resident in London, was presented, and read; setting forth, That the Petitioners are chiefly of the humbler classes of society, and, as such, exposed in a more than ordinary degree to the privations entailed upon all by the universal distress which the Petitioners believe to pervade all classes of His Majesty's subjects; that the want of employment experienced by the Petitioners, the lowness of wages, the enormous pressure of taxation upon every necessary of life, has led the Petitioners to reflect upon those causes which have produced such melancholy effects upon the comforts and happiness of the Petitioners; and praying for, 1st, a Reform in Parliament; 2d, the reduction and equalization of Taxation; 3d, the repeal of the Corn Laws; 4th, an inquiry into the Land Revenues of the Crown, so as to make them available to the diminution of the public burthens; 5th, the Abolition of all useless Places and Pensions; 6th, an inquiry into the state and Revenue of the Established Church, so as to restore it to the purposes for which it was originally intended.

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

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

Mr. Speaker,

The Lords have agreed to the Amendments made by this House to the Bill, intituled, An Act to enable John Buckle, Esquire, or other Committee of the Estate of William Buckle, a Lunatic, for and in the name and on behalf of the said William Buckle, to consent to the exercise of a Power of Sale over Estates settled on the said William Buckle for his life, and which power is exercisable with the consent of the said William Buckle, without any Amendment: And also,

Duek of Bedford's Estate Bill.

The Lords have passed a Bill, intituled, An Act to dissolve the Marriage of James Bayley, Esquire, with Louisa his Wife, and to enable him to marry again, and for other purposes; to which the Lords desire the concurrence of this House:-And then the Messengers withdrew.

Address for Return respecting 4½ perCent. Duties.

Resolved, That an humble Address be presented to His Majesty, that He will be graciously pleased to give directions, that there be laid before this House, a Return of all Payments made out of the Surplus which accrued on the Four-and-a-Half per Cent. Fund, between 25th March 1828 and 5th January 1830, over and above the Payments made by the Husband, and the Salaries and Pensions detailed in a Return, N° 273, of the present Session; specifying the nature of the Instrument authorizing the Payments out of such Surplus, and the Names of the Parties to whom such Payments were made.

Ordered, That the said Address be presented to His Majesty by such Members of this House as are of His Majesty's most honourable Privy Council.

Petition for reduction of Diplomatic Expenses.

A Petition of Members of the Metropolitan Political Union, inhabitants of the cities of London and Westminster and the borough of Southwark, was presented, and read; setting forth, That the Petitioners, being deeply impressed with the necessity of some relief being afforded to the productive classes of society, pray that the House will urge upon the attention of His Majesty's Ministers the enormous amount from Diplomatic Expenses, and the ease with which the industrious classes might be relieved from some of the oppressive imposts to which they are now subject, by a just and reasonable diminution in the aforesaid expenses; by the Parliamentary statement recently published, it appears that the Diplomatic Expenses for the year 1829, which is about 50,000£. below the mean of the four preceding years, amounted to the sum of 366,900£., while those of the United States, a powerful commercial country, for the same period, which included a special mission at Panama, only amounted to 37,500£.; the Petitioners pray, That the House will ascertain the real cause of this extraordinary difference in the Diplomatic Expenses of the two countries, and effect such a reduction in our own as will enable the Chancellor of the Exchequer to gratify his benevolent disposition towards the poorer classes of the community in the extinction of some of those taxes by which they are peculiarly affected.

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

Petition respecting Poor Rates.

A Petition of Gentry, Clergy and Freeholders of the county of Bedford, was presented, and read; setting forth, That the Rates levied for the maintenance of the Poor are becoming annually more burthensome upon the occupiers of land in England, inasmuch as in many instances their actual amount has increased, while in almost all parishes they absorb the proceeds of a greater proportion of the productions of the soil, by reason of the reduction of prices; that on this account the tenants of such parishes are disabled from paying the same rents as hitherto, while the interminable aggravation of the Poor Rates threatens ere long to exhaust the whole surplus produce of the land, and to extinguish rent; that the Petitioners could adduce instances of the near approach to such an extremity; that they are not able to discover any effectual remedy for this state of things, excepting by enabling the unemployed or partially employed peasantry to maintain themselves; that they conceive that the best, and indeed the only way of accomplishing this, would be, to let to labourers of this description portions of conveniently situated land of as good quality as can be obtained, at moderate rents, free from parochial taxes; the extent might vary according to the number of persons to be provided for, to their ability to cultivate, and to the greater or less portion of the year when they are not engaged by regular wages; for unmarried men, one rood, or half an acre, might suffice; for families, a quantity from this to two acres, while perhaps some few of established good character might be intrusted with as much as five acres, to keep one or two cows, besides other smaller live stock; and praying the House to cause an inquiry to be instituted into the effects which the allotment of small portions of land to cottagers may have been found to produce upon the comforts and morals of the labouring classes, and to take such means of facilitating the adoption of this substitute for parochial relief as may appear expedient.

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