HOUSE OF LORDS. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1.âNo business of a public na- ture was transacted.-Adjourned at half-past five. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2.The Lord Chancellor asked to bring in a bill to give the same remedies to the Ecclesiastical Court, in cases of contempt, as the Court of Chancery possessed. Leave was given, and the bill was read a first time, and ordered to be printed. Lord Ellenborough presented a petition from the shipowners and merchants of London interested in the trade of the Cape of Good Hope. The noble lord expressed his satisfaction at the determination of his Majesty's government not to assimilate the duties on the Cape wines with the duties on French wines. The petitioners, although they protested against the original intention, acquiesced in the tax of 2s 9d a gallon on Cape wine. Viscount Goderich said that it was not the intention of his Ma- jesty's government to persevere m their original intention upon the subject, as they felt it their duty to listen and attend to the remonstrances of those interested in the trade. He considered, however, that the increase of the duty from 2s 6d to 2s 9d a gal- lon, left the whole question open to the future consideration of parliament. As head of the colonial department, he felt it his duty to afford every relief to the colony, if afflicted by external pressure.âAdjourned. SATURDAY, SEPT. 3.âNo public business was entered into.
