LONDON, SATURDAY MAUClt 10. THE following is the last clause in the Act for Suppressing Uttlawful Societies in Ireland, the blanks having 1* filled up after the printing of the Bill: "And bt it enacted, that this Act shall com- mence aed be of force from and after the expiration of ten days from and after the passing thereof, and notsooner; and shall te and continue in force for two years from the day of passing this Act, and until the end of the !14,J ii of lJnr~ liamentl' The wordifiii italics are the additions. The Biit received the Royal Assent on the gth instant. In the Parliamentary Report on the state of Ireland are some curious questions and answers regarding what in Ireland are called Middle Men—that is, men who take land from landlords, and who let it again to others at an increased price per acre. It was formerly supposed, and strenuously asserted in Ireland, that such men were nuisances, and that to them most of the existing evil4 in Ireland were to be attributed. About this time last year we defended these men, and, in con- tradiction to the generally-received opi. nion, we asserted that they were a class of people beneficial to the state-for that as a matter of necessity, they commonly resided near the land so leased to them, but which they re-let, and that consequent- Iy wbat profit they realised they spent among the shopkeepers and farmers in the neighbour hood— atid that in a national respect they were greatly to be preferred as good members of society, and as efti cient subjects of the King before the landlords themselves, who commonly lived out of Ireland. We put the case in this way—suppose A, the laud-holder, had an estate, which was worth ten thousand pounds a year, and that he employed an agent to reside upon the spot, and thst he gave that agent 21 per cent, or 2501. a year for collecting his rents and, as is,, the case generally with Irish estates, the landlord lived in England or France, and we will even suppose the Rent duly col- lected-bere would be 2001, a yL-u sp,61,tl in Ireland by the agent, but 12,7501. would be remitted to the landlord to be spent by him in England or France. But suppose a middle-man were to take the estate from the landlord, and was to give him 8,0001. a year, then of course the landlord, would have to spend only that sum of money away from Ireland; but the expenditure there, in consequence of such middle-man being the lessee (who would probably re- side in Ireland;, would be 2,0001. a year or more by 1,7501. than would be spent by the agent. Now we should think that take it in general, an absentee Irish land. lord would preter to let his land all in one lease to a responsible man, for 80001. a year, employ an agent, at 2501. a year, to watch tenants who might or might not pay the 10,0001. a year. Most great land- holders know how tender-hearted many agents are, and that, in too many instances they are as open to be influenced by tenants as in modern schemes. (From the Jamaica Royal Gazette of the 22d Jan J By the Thracian, 18, we learn, that hostilities were still canied on between the Castle of Saint Juan de Ulloa and the town of La Vera Cruz. When she left the latter place, several houses had suffer. ed severely from the bombardment from the Castle. Great rejoicings took place a Carthngena in consequence of the defeat of the Royalists tind the capture of Lima by the liberating army under General Suere, General Bolivar being absent on account of extreme indisposition. Several valuable Spanish merchantmen which were at Caltao ftllinto the possession of the patriots. The Venezuela frigate, Com- modore Chitty, was fitting out at Cariha- gena to take despatches to England from 'he Colombian government, announcing the total annihilation of the Spanish forces IN the South Seas. A double bounty was paid to able-bodied seamen who enlisted on-board the Venezuela.

PARLIAMENTARY PROCEEDINGSi -J. Iw the House of Lords on Tuesday- j Petitions were presented from Wenloekt in Shropshire, and from the Clergy of the Diocese of Peterboroughf against acctkding to the demands of the Roman Citholics. Some other Petitions were also presented. Lord Suffield, in moving the first reading of a Bill to make robbing gardens larceny, previously to moving the committal of the Spring-guns Abolition Bill, took occasion to complain of what he called a TMM deguerre of the Duka of Welling- ton, who, in order to defeat the bill, had proposed to generalise its.provisions to an extent that would raise a popular outcry against it. The Duke of Wellington denied that he had been guilty of any unfair manesuvre. He confessed. that he disliked the bill, particularly in its first shape, when it went, by confiuiug the prohibition of spring guns to game preserves—to stigmatize 1 country, gentlemen as the persons most likely to make an improper use of those treaoherous engines. In order to get rid of that invidious particularity he had proposed to render the interdict universal, and if by doing so he hadinsured the defeat of the bill it was not his fault, but. the fault of those who introduced a principle unfit for general ap. plication. A conversation of gome length followed, in witicti the Lord Chancellor, l.ord Maltnetbury, u, arl Grosvenor, the Earl of Liverpool, the Mat- qld. of Salisbury and others took part. bad the [bill was read a first time. The House then went into a committee on the spring guna* aboli- tion bill. The Earl of Lrpool propoged.to ikinjindment. prohibiting the use of spring guns and steel traps in all places whatsoever. Lord Ellenborough, Earl Grosvenor. aud Lord Holland opposed the amendment, on the ground that it would deprive market gardeners of a necessary mean of protec- tion. Lord Harrowby on the other hand supported it, and on a division it WM carried by a majority of 28 to 5. In the Hotise of Commons- After some private bills and other miscellaneous business of inferior interest had been disposed of— Colonel Trench moved for leave to bring in a bill to build a quay and carriage-way along the north bank of the Thames. Arr. CalcrqJl opposed the motion on the ground that the proposed quay would be detrimental to a great many existing interests. Mr. liobhoutt opposed it on the same grouds. He also thought the scheme was impracticable. Colonel Trench replied to the latter argument of the last speaker, by saying that the work had been guaranteed to be completed in the most splendid style for 6SS,0001. or in a more homely manner (of brick) for 400,0001. ;\1, Croktr suggested that it would be prema- ture to determine upon the question until the effect of the new London bridge in directing the river stream should be known. That the removal of the starlings of the present London Bridge would make a decided change in the current was, he said expected by all engineers who had considered the subject; but none pretended to tell whether the stream would fall to the right or to the left bank of the river. Lord Palmrston supported the motion, He thought a communication between the East and West part of the town indispensably necessary. Sir llobtrl Wilson also supported the Bill. Mr. Peel opposed the motion, and employed the same arguments used by Mr. Croker. Mr. Baring supported the motion, and on a di- vision it was carried by a majority of So to 45. Lord Palmerston then presented a petition from the university of Cambridge against acceding to the demands of the Irish Roman Catholics. Mr.Bankes, in recommending the petition to the attention of the House, explained that it spoke the sentiments of the lay members of the Univer- sity as well as of the clergy. The honourable gentleman then animadverted with much indigna- tion upon the disrespectful manner in which some petitions from the clergy had lately been received p —and upon the different reception these petitions had met with from that of the Roman Catholic petitions. Mr. Hume said, the reason of the difference was that the Roman Catholics petitioned for justice, the Clergy to perpetuate injustice. Sir Eliab Ilarvey, Mr. C. Wilson, and others, highly approved of the petition, and warmly eulo- glised the Protestantt Clergy. Ilr. Wilmot HortOn postponed until Tuesday next, the introduction of a bill for the consolida- tion of the Slave Laws which he held in his hand, in consequence of a declaration by Dr. Lushington that ke would oppose a clatite in it, authorising the restoration to foreign states ctf fugitive slaves. Mr. Wilmot Horton then brought itl a bill for the sale and improvement of vtaste lands in Upper I Canada. The Right Hon. Gentleman explained, that the purpose of his measure was to sanction a aale of the lands 111 question to a Company, thttt had offered for them 20,D00f. a-ybar rorflfteen yean, which sum he Would propose to apply alto. gether to the improvement of the colony. Mr. Ifumewxpresood hisapprobittion of the par- ticular measure; but spoke with great severity of the general misconduct of the Colonial Depart- ment; adding that if he had a reformed House of Commons he would not hesitate to impeach Lord Bathurst. A conversation of considerable length followed between Mr. Gordon, Mr, Baring, Mr. Bright, and Mr. WHmot Horton. The bill under consideration seemed to receive very general approbation Mr. Baring intimated that sooner or la ter the Canada. mvat eonStilute an independent state-perhaps the soolletthey should be emancipated the better. Sir George Hill moved the Irish provincial banks bill. Mr. Dawson, Sir tt. Parnell, Mr. Spring Rice, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr.Trant, and Mr. M. Fitzgerald, supported the measure. Most of the speakers observed with severity upon the chartered bank of Ireland, which had de- layed as long as possible to lower its discounts, and always refused to discount any paper not pay- able in Dublin.-Laws given. Sir It. Parnell moved for some copies of me- morials complaining of injurious restrictions af- fecting Irish butter trade. The hon. bart. ex- plained hie object at some length, and a conver- sation followed between Mr. C. Grant, Mr. Hume, Mr. S. Rice &c. The motion was agreed to. The Chancellor of Exchequer mentioned that he would propose to ex«ni}A from duty the. dogs of poor persons, otherwise exempt from the Asses- sed taxes, such dogs not being spaniels, pointers, or greyhounds and also pot boy. under 15 years of age. In the House of Lords on Wednesday—* Sari Grosvenor, In presenting a petition against bear-baiting &c. from the well known Mr. John Gale Jooee, took occasion to reprobate generally all modes of cruelty to animals, and suggested that fox-hunting ought to be put down by law as well as bear baiting. In the House of Commons- The Thames Quay bill was read a first time upon the motion of Colonel Trench. Mr. Calcrajt, who predicted that the bill would not pass this session, was the only member who spoke upon the subject. ftlr. Green moved the second reading of the Pasco Peruvian mining company incorporation bill. Mr. Ilobhouse opposed the motion in a speech of great animation, and one which manifested, that the Hon. Member had bestowed great industry in obtaining a perfect knowledge of the subject. He called the scheme adelusion. and gave an analysis of its original prospectus, contradicting, upon au- thority as he went along, every one of its material allegations. He, in the first place, disputed the title of the Company to the Mines claimed by them and shewed, that these mines had been assigned and re-assigned to parties who had still a dormant title to them, notwithstanding that some imperfect act of sequestration had been passed re- specting them by the doubtful authority of some 1 provisional local government. He then showed by the example of many successive failures, that even if the title to the mines were good, the pros- pect of working them to any advantage was utterly desperate. He cited the authority of Baron Humboldt to prove that the mines are situated at an elevation of more than thirteen thousand feet above the level of the sea (an elevation far above the region of vegetable life), amind montains thatare scarcely accessible, and in a climate where the alternations of heat and cold are so violent, that no labourer, whether Eurobean, Negro, or Indian, has been known to survive a year's employment in it. Mr. Hobhouse also denied the existence of coal in the vicinity of the mines.—a circumstance which had been industriously but forward in the prospectus of the Company, in order to encourage ahope that the mines might be wrought by the means of steam engines. Mr. Buxton answered the member for West. minster by a speech as full of proofs of research as that honourable gentleman's. He contradicted all his assertions specifically, and apparently upon authorities of equal weight. He affirmed that for the last twenty years, the mines had produced on the average two millions of dollars per annum, that the title of the company was good, and that there was a coal mine within a league ofthe silver ¡ mines. Mr. Buxton ascribed the prejudice raised against the Company to the arts of a Mr. Dubois, who had nevertheless, he said, offered to give his support to the speculation and to retract all that he had said against it, at fir-it upon the con- dition of receiving tnenty, and after that offef had been rejected; upon the condition of receiviug ten shares; Mr. T. Wilson, Mr. Baring; Mr. Eliice, Mr; AtwoOd, and Mr. Alderman Bridges. supported the motion; and Mr. Lofckhartj Sir F; Burdett* Mfj. Calcraft and Mr; Robertson, opposed It, The Bill was read a seCond lintd without a division* In the House of Lords last night— The Bishop Welw, in presenting A Petition against the Roman Catholic demands, from the Archdeaconry of his Diocese, complained with becoming indignation, of the attempts lately made in that House, te deprive the Clergy of the enjoyment of the common right of petitioning. Lord King denied thttt any such attempts had been made but- The Earl of Liverpool reminded the house, that a proposition to the effect stated bad been made by Earl Fitz\\ iJiam on a former evening. In the House of Commons— After ft great deal of miscellaneous business of inferior interest had been disposed of. jUr. nuxton rose to explain, that the person alluded to by him on Wednesday evening, as hav- ing acted an improper part in the affaire of the Pisco-Peruvian Mining Company, was not Mr. Wm. Dubois, of the Stock Exceange (who was a most respectable Gentleman,) but a Mr. James Dubois. lr, Calcraft called the attention of the Ilousa to a very aggravated case of fraud, which occur- red ia the office of the Corn Inspector of lpswicli market. That oftvcerMriCalcraft said had returned fabricated accounts ofsates to the amount of 5,000 quarters of corn, in the name of the firm of Claude Scott and Company, DO such firm having carried on business in the corn trade at Ipswich for more than twenty years. The inspector had indeed, added Mr. C., afterwards cautioned the Receiver- General against acting upon this return, admitting its falsehood but still the matter demanded in- vestigation. Alr. ScoU confirmed Mr. Calcraft's statement, with respect to the Firm of his near relative Sir Claude Scott, who had, he said, been out of the Corn Trade 25 yorrs.. An intimation was thrown out that the Inspector would be examined at the Bar; but no formal arrangement for the purpose was made. Air. PM presented a petition from the Univer- sity of Oxford, against the Roman Catholie Claims; and expressed his cordial conourrencein he prayer of his conatituents. The Rt. Hononra- tble Gentleman preMnted a similar one from the Borough of Beverly. Mr. Peel next gave notice that he would this evening move for leave to bring iu two bills; the one to increase the pecuniary remuneration of the Police Magistrates;—the other to amend some material parts In the Criminal law. Mr. Hume moved for return of the persons in holy orders holding offices in Corporations. Mr. Peel opposed the motion with great eaT. nestness, on the ground that, whatever the real merits ofthe question upon which it arose might be, tbe granting such returns upon the motion of Mr. Hume, the avowed and notorious enemy of the church, and at a time when some per- sons did not^hesitate to threaten retaliation for the part which the Clergy had taken upon the Roman Catholic question, eould not be regarded aa any thing but an open attack by Parliament upon the Establishment. Mr. Fyshe Palmer bore testimony to the Ines- timable merits of the Clergy, but supported the motion, as did also Sir John Newport. Mr. Carus Wilson spoke warmly in praise of the Clergy and opposed the motion. The House proceeded to divide on the motion, but only twenty-six members being present, an adjournment followed. T
Cranbery plants are an excellent substitute for white-thorn, as a garden fonce; a hedge formed of them presents an impenetrable barrier to cattle. They grow very quickly, bear fruit the third year of planting, and the crop of fruit become* more abundant and valuable every succeeding year. An account of the offering of an unlucky silver waiter, that had been a piece of plate in a house not of the best character, to the Rev. Archdeacon Potts, by his parishioners of St. Martin's-in-the- Fields. has been published. We had heard of tha story, but with some variations. The waiter was not made new to order; it was agreed between the silversmith and the gentlemen who were com- missioned to make the purchase, that they should have the plate "second-hand," by which means they would get something more hands.onte for their money. A superb silver salver was accord- ingly chosen, inscribed, green-bagged, and carried up in a coach by a deputation and it was then, after an address, and a formal presentation, that the offering was declined. '• Some d — d'good. natured anonymous friend" had enclosed to the Archdeacon an extract from a sale catalogue, con- taining a character from its last place of the very waiter in question. The Archdeacon recognized it at a glance (from the description, we Iean). and would not take it into his Wfrvice: it was re- luctantly re-bagged, and carried back to the sil ver- smith, whn readily enough confessed where he had it from, but he had never dreamt of, and could not enter into the scruples of the churchman, neither could he give any thing for the article in return but its price as old silver, for it was inscribed to order, with a rather ample and affectionate address to the Archdeacon.
