§ Mr. O'Connell
presented petitions from parishes in Cork, complaining of the Vestry and Subletting Acts. And after referring to the cases of the petitioners for the purpose of showing the great abuses practised on the levying of vestry rates in parishes where a very small number of the inhabitants are Protestants, gave notice of his intention to move for the repeal of a portion of the Act of George the 2nd, in order to enlarge the power of the King's Bench in granting a mandamus where the parishioners apply to it and complain of the levying of such rates.
§ Lord Palmerston
gave notice of his intention to submit a motion to the House relative to our relations with Portugal, on Thursday, the 18th instant.
