HOUSE OF COMMONS.âTHURSDAY, MARCH 1. MR. DISRAELI'S RESOLUTION. Mr. DISRAELI laid upon the table a resolution of which he had previously given notice with respect to agricultural distress. Upon the motion of Mr. HUME, the clerk read the resolution, which was to the following effect;- That the whole local taxation of the country for national pur- poses was raised mainly, if not exclusively, upon property, that it bore with undue severity on the occupiers of land; that it was in- jurious to the agricultural interests of the country, and was other wise highly impolitic and unjust; that the hardships of the ap- portionment, which was greatly aggravated by the fact that more than one-third of the whole revenue derived from the excise was levied upon agricultural produce, exposed us, by recent changcs in the law, to direct competition with the untaxed produce of other countries that this burden of taxation greatly balanced the price and limited the demand of British produce and iuj uriourly inter- fered with the trade and industry of the country and that a com- mittee of the whole House be appointed to take into consideration such measures as might be required to remove the grievances of which owners and occupiers of land justly complain, and with the view to a more equitable apportionment of the public burden."
