THE

PARLIAMENTARY REGISTER,

DURING THE SECOND SESSION OF THE FOURTH PÁRLIA MENT OF THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN

AND IRELAND.

II OUSE OF LORDS.

SATURDAY, MAY 14. MR R. GILLIES was heard in reply for the appellant

in the tiend cause, the earl of Wemys against the rev. Mr. Daniel M'Queen. · The Lord Chancellor said this was a question of great importance, and one on which he could not satisfactorily form his opinion without due deliberation, and an accurate perusal of his notes. He did not feel himself prepared to name a day for the decision, but ordered the further proceediòg in the cause to stand for Tuesday.

The Earl of Lauderdale moved that there be laid before the house a specification of the augmentations made by the lords commissioners for plantation of kirks and valu. ation of tiends, from the latter end of the year 1707, the period of the union between Scotland and England, to the present period. Ordered.

The Irish assessed taxes bill, and the three millions and one and a half millions excliequer bilis bills, were read a second time. The different militia and Irish militia pay, adjutants, and officers bills, were read a third time and passed, Adjourned.

HOUSE OF LORDS.

MONDAY, MAY 16. Mr. Wharton and several other members of the house of commons, brought up the Irish post-office bill, which was read a first time ; as were also the interment bill, brought up by Mr. Tremaine and other members and a private bill brought up by Mr. Estcourt. VOL. III.-1808.

B

The Irish assessed taxes bill, the 1,500,0COI. exchequer bills bill, and the 3,000,0001. exchequer bills bill, passed through committees and were reported.

INDICTMENT BILL! The Lord Chancellor observed that this was an important bill, and as screral noble lords, who wished to be present at the discussion, did not expect it to come on till Wednesday, he hoped there would be no objection to defer it till that day.

Earl Stanhope was glad to hear that the noble and learned lord thought it an important bill. He thought it an infamous bill, and one of the worst that had ever come from the commons. He had no objection to the postponement till Wednesday, but hoped noble lords would then attend.

The order for summmoning their lordships this day was discharged and renewed for Wednesday. Ad. journed.

HOUSE OF COMMONS.

MONDAY, MAY 16. Mr. Mellish presented a petition from certain tan. ners and batchers, against the flaying-act. Ordered to lie on the table.

A message from the lords acquainted the house, that theit lordships had agreed to the militia clothing bill for Great Britain, for the year 1808, to the militia subaltern allow ance bill, to the Irish militia pay bill, and the Irish duty bill, without any amendment.

Sir Samuel Romilly gave notice that he would on Wednesday next move for leave to bring in a bill the object of which would be twofold : first, to mitigate in certain cases the severity of the laws with respect to capital punishments; and secondly to provide as far as can be done, an adequate compensation for such persons as have been acquitted after a confinement, beyond a stated time, for supposed offences.

Mr. Fuller gave notice, that he would to-morrow move for leave to bring in a bill, for more efectua ally preventing the spreading of the contagion of the small

pox.
