MERTHYR 1YDVIL, SATURDAY, .Ma.' 11, 1833. This week's history of parliamentary proceed- ings presents us with few features of marked in terest. The Earl of ABERDEEN, on Friday week, moved for and obtained the production of certain papers and correspondence relative to the conquest and continued occupation of Algiers by the French, after the repeated engagements both of the go- vernments of CHARLES the Tenth and of Louis PuiLifPE to evacuate that territory after the ohjectsof the expedition were accomplished and the insult offered to the French flag avenged. What possible excuse France may proffer fur this breach of her faith, we shall be curijus to learn from the papers about to be laid u pon the table of the Peers but certainly we should be essentially wanting to our own dignity to admit of any evasions on a question of very considerable interest to the trading community at large. For it must be borne in mind, that previous to that invasion we carried on a beneficial commerce with the Algerines, and were in the enjoyment of various privileges and immunities, which gave every promise of facili- tating and greatly extending our traffic in the interior of the country all of which it were idle to expect to retain, if Algiers be allowed to con- tinue a dependency of France, to the prejudice' of our mercantile and manufacturing industry. And truly our trade is neither so extensive and nourishing, nor our hard-working artisans so well paid and easy in circumstances, that we can afford to lose any, even the least, portion of our foreign commerce. Besides, the French made a booty so splendid on tl.e capture of the city of Algiers, as ought to satisfy avarice the most craving; for in golp, silver, and jewel. alone, exclusive of stores, shipping, and other pro. perly of that state, they found and carried off from the public treasury no less an amount than to the value of four millions of pounds sterling. The Irish Church Temporalities Bill was read a second time on Monday, after a fruit less opposition by Mr. SHAW, Sir ROBERT PEEL, and other members. We have hereto- fore taken occasion to express our opinion upon this measure, the principle of which, so much more odious than the details, involves so materially the security of all property, both public and private, that we trust the day is far distant when those who have introduced and are by large majorities supporting it may have to fear.in the usual progress of the career of injustice, tijt: same measure dealt out to them which they are now unreflectingly meting out to others. To a wholesome corrective of the abuses of the Irish Church, which may be chiefly traced to the state of society and religion in that island, we, for our part, should have made no objection. But the present measure is far two violent to meet the real merits of ihe case. On the same evening a message from his MAJESTY was delivered to the Commons, proposing a com- mittee, to whom should be referred the examination of the state of the Woods, Forests and other Royal domains of the Crown, with a view to render then as available as possible to the national exigen- cies-a proceeding which we do not hesitate to cha- racterize as truly wise, beneficent, and paternal on the part of our Gracious SOVEREIGN, and which must tend greatly to endear him to the hearts of all his subjects.
