Mr. IJume presented a petition from
the inhabitants of tha metropolis, prav
i ing for a change ol the laws with regard
| to the infliction of capital • punishment,
j Tha petition was signed by 51330
persons. The petitioners stated, that in
I their opinion, the seventy of punishment
! ought to be diminished, and itscertaioty
increased At present the infliction of
punishment was but a lottery, and the
chances of escape were some three and
four hundred to one in- favour of toe
prisoner. Toe law, therefore, instead
ot being a terror to evil doers, bad be
come a matter of little importance. In'
cootuquence of the severity of ihe law,
there was â–  general conspiracy to
prevent the infliction of the punishment
it awarded. It the severity of the punish punishment
ment punishment was relaxed prosecutions would
increase a hundred fold. He thought
that capital punishments ought to be
abolished except so the case of murder
or arson. He wished to know whether
the House thought they ought indirect indirectly
ly indirectly to encourage murder by giving to it
the same punishment as the violation
of property in some instances re received
ceived received That war the result of such
indiscriminate severity. Uncertainty of
j punishment tended to the same object.
Where five or six bundled persons were
sentenced, and only fifty were executed, ]
the uncertainty afforded a strong induce inducement
ment inducement to criminals trotry the lottery of es escape
cape escape ofpuoisbment,,, liegave his most!
cordial support to* the petition. The
following is a copy of the petition
“ Humbly Showetb—That your pe petitioners
titioners petitioners are deeply impressed with the
opinion, that the efficacy ot criminal
laws depends less upon the severity of
punishment than the certainty of
infliction; and that taws, which cannot be
earrled into execution without shocking
the feelings ol eoc'e-y, and exciting sym sympathy
pathy sympathy for the offender are contrary to
reason, incontis eot with morality, Bad
opposed to the interests ot justiee.
“ T lit the criminal laws of England
are of a character so vindictive and

barbarous as to be nitatlv incapable of
uniform execution ; and that, conse consequently.
quently. consequently. under the present system, the
ijves of men depend less upon the
precise and express provhions of law,
than upon the temper, feeling,or enpnee

That the excessive severity of the
law operates to the total iropun ty of a
great proportion of offenders, by lie
t and by holding out a temptation to ju
rors to violate their oath, rather than
be accessory to judicial murder—while
almost ail the capital punishmeots now
on the Statute-book ereinnavations upon
the tempefate and wholesome principles
of thelmcient common law of the land,
which bad ever been admired for as
humanity and wisdom by the greatest
legal authorities, and is coeval wiib tlio
noblest and best principles of the Eng

‘That your petitioners, therefore,
humbly pray your Honourable House
to take ihe criminal laws into your
consideration, and, in accordance with
what the true interests ot jus:tce, as
well as of humanity, require—»o in introduce

reform of the criminal law as will render
it more auxiliary to public morals than

ever pray, &c '
M*. Prase said that he, too, most
cordis iy supported the prayer ot the
petition. In his opinion, it imported
much to the character of a Christian
Legislature and a Christian nation to
wipe off the stain of severity of
punishment. He was convinced that
ihe more that subject obtained the
consideration of tbe House, the grea greater
ter greater would be the anxiety to wipe
away that blot from our institutions,
Severity of punishment was objection®

our laws, was the reform and amend*
ment of the criminal as well as hia
The Solicitor General concurred with
the, views of the Hon. Members oppo
site but thought they had forgotten how
much had already been done. Even tn
the hst session ol Parliament, the pu
nphment of death waa abolished in cases
of cattle steeling, horse steoln £, in some
cases of forgery, and in coming, which
till then was considered as high treason.
He admitted that the law, in respect of
capital punishmeots, was capable of
still further improvement, notwahstand
mg the many amendment* recently
introduced. The petition seemed to
have been drawn up by a person who
bad been asleep for the la.a ten years,
and therefore knew nothing of the late
Mr. Leonard observed, that there
was a general feeling m the country a
gainst the severity of the punishments
in our criminal code. It was his opioion,
that no crime against property, unac*
companied with violence to bis person,
ought to be punished with death.
Mr, G. Robinson had been instructed
by bis constituents to support all peti petitions
tions petitions with the prayer of that now off-red
to the House, and be did so with the
greatest pleasure, as they accorded
with his own, sentiments. Milder pu punishments,
nishments, punishments, cartainly inflicted, would
have much greater tendency to prevent
crime, than severe punish meets uncer uncertainly
tainly uncertainly inflicted.
Mr Lamb thought it necessary, on
these questions, to proceed with caution,
and, as hitherto, to consider each crime
separately as it was brought before the
House. He wsa Bppy to inform honora honorable

spccts well qualified,had been sent to the
Unitvd|Stst6s, in order to make inquiries

and into the efficacy of secondary pu punishments,

ment of the system in this country.
For the trial of tbe experiment, he was
of opinion that tbe Penitentiary afforded
sufficient facilities, without the neces*
ihj of any new and expensive ftlruciufe*

“ W iile we adroit that crime is
Increasing, and that Poverty and Mi
e*ry stare us in the face among the
dwellings of the Poor, we never once
dream >hat the fault is in a grt ai
roeas re our own; it is the education
and training of the children of the
poor which produces crime. The fe
lons of *632 were the neglected chil children
dren children of 18t0; and if the ratio of
depravity shou'd keep pace with the
inci. ase of population, n needs no great
depth of propiisjtical wisdom to fore*
tell the fate of this Empire in the
course of ten or fifteen years Would
i he credited if :o!d in the City ot

Kingdom of Grcn Broein they edu

jet such is the f ct ; our Pr sons are
Colleges for the instruction of youth,

Nor can eny shadow of excuse be

sixteen years. I will only a-k ts these
poor creatures, thus penned op and
are likely to improve in
their moral or religious haoits; woe
thyr the trad- of Shoem Tors, wh'ch they are learning, is likely
to he enriched by their laoours, or
whe her on their release from the
hulk, they are not likely to be out
oi work themselves ot to displace
others in these ersf s which are already
overstocked wt h labourers? Atsi
m'ng that these que'ioos can only be
answered in the affirmative. I'a k
what possible good can accrue u* so

sive expensive education ? and wnether trie ho hottest
ttest hottest and industrious of these trades,
who have (a rly s r»ed their time and

have not a just right «o co npiain that
their earnings have been shared by a

thrust upon them t-v means of a Go- '

good workmen such must be ihe .Sect,
a.u> if had wokoen topn ha. ihe '
money expended on them been thrown
Toe only rtroedy for this, and
most of the evils now existing, is the
application of labour to those works
w deb can do injury to none, and ere
ready to receive all. Sucn occupation
is to be found in our fi >os aod g*r» ;

our Colotde* of the Cape of Good Hope

child, mde or female, would find ready
employment and wages if they were
sent out a« free labourers ; nor should
we wait uutil they had discharged them
selves by crime, or plundered and
destroyed ten itmes as much as their
voyage and ou:fit would cost. If then
children tray be snatched from infamy
•nd destruction at a small expense,
which they are all willing to repay out
Os their wages, and if our Colonics
both at home and abroad will receive

Whereas it has been made knowD

â–º has made its appearance in some parts
of his Majesty’s North American Pro Provinces,
vinces, Provinces, and m several places within the
; United States of America, yet the
: symptoms have been comparatively
i mild and subdued ; and the loss of lives
hitherto experienced, very trifi'ng. Now
i in order that his Majesty’s lovingsub
i jec»s in these Islands should suffer no 1
i unnecessery alarm or apprehension, I
i am desirous that they should be mane
acquainted, with as little delay as po3-
, ibie, with the real state of the case. j
Being moreover impressed with the
necessity of every due precaution being
resorted to, in order to prevent the
introduction of a malady into these I
i Islands, which, in many countries, has
t commuted such dreadful ravages. I have
directed that the following extract!

• point• ing out those measures which are en en[
[ en[ joined in case of the arrival of any Ship
I or Vessel having any person or persona
, on board labouring uoder any infectious
