House of Goanjnons, Monday, July 13.- The Chancellor of the Exchequer rost to propot;.B a lottery or lotteries ior tibe next year, in which the tickf*,s should not exceed 100.000 at £ 10 per tickui. There had been a suggestion mad0 to the Treasury that it magho have a better t-ff ?ct. if the prizes in the first, lotteries of the year were to ba paid in lottery tickets instead of money. Upon this subject, they had amie to no resolution, baL thought it prosper to inform the commutes of thifi suggestion, lie therefore propsied that the Lords of the Treasurv should bs authorized to contract with such persons as were disposed to bad for a lottery or lotteries of 100,000 tickets.

He contended that by the instruction he proposed, the labouring I z;1 classes of the country would be changed 1J1- to a better order of men; and that it was only from brutal ignorance that. ferocious and intractable manner: were to be expect- ed and that any demagogue who could read and write was enabled to persuade an illiterate mob to his purpose. Nine-tenths of the unfortunate persons brought to the of the unfortunate brought to the gallows under the sanguinary criminal code of this country owed their iate to a want of education.
