Lord Redesdale, pursuant to notice, presented a petition from an individual, complaining of the interference of the Commissioners of Excise with the sale of a preparation of mangel worzel or beet-root, called booka, and praying that it may be put on the same footing with chicory. The E.irl of Derby said that there was no prohibition against the sale of this preparation so Ionas the petitioner chose to call it by its own name the only objection was to his IIlixinït with his coffee and selling it by that name. After a few words from Lord Redesdale and the Earl of Wk-klow the petition was ordered to lie on the table. The Duke of Argyll rose to present several petitions from Scotland against the grant to Maynooth. All these petitions proeeed^d on the ground that it was morally wromj for us to grant sums of money to support institutions for the propa- gation of a. religion which we did not believe to be the true one. F r his own part he must say that he did not concur "_cn ihis ground for the abolition. To his mind tlip question was one of policy merely. He was deeply grieved to per- ceive the course which had been taken by the great consti- tuencies of Scotland on this question in exacting pledges from the candidates now canvassing, to vote in favour of this abolition, and he considered it to be the duty of their Lord- ships, placpd as they were above the necessity of mingling with a popular constituency, whenever they considered that the course which popular agitation might take on any par- ticular question to be likely to be dangerous to the public policy, to enter their protest against it. Lord Monteagle presented a petition on the subject of the position and political rights of the natives of India under the last Act for the renewnl of the charter.
