DURING the period of Mr. BURKE's Parliamentary labours, some alterations in the Acts of Uniformity, and the Repeal of the Test and Corporation Acts, were agitated at various times in the House of Commons. It appears from the state of his MS. Papers, that he had designed to publish some of the SPEECHES, which he delivered in those discussions, and with that view had preserved the following FRAGMENTS and detached NOTES; which are now given to the Publick with as much order and connexion as their imperfect condition renders them capable of receiving.—The Speeches on the Middlesex Election; on shortening the Duration of Parliaments; on the Reform of the Representation in Parliament; on the Bill for explaining the Power of Juries in Prosecutions for Libels; and on the Repeal of the Marriage Act, were found in the same imperfect state.
