A great J part of the petition related as. to the priso'rier's treatment inr the;Goldbath Fields prison,'rathef than to the cond.uft of Covernment, tJpon the whole, from the manner in which the petition was ! wprded, it did not appear to him that the House II could proper!v suffer it to upon the-table, Mr. GR�T observed, that-the pernion did not appear to contain any thingf infbrtpjif or irregular. It'might, -indeed,-be toolon^, &c. but not stirdi as that-Honse ought not to receive*-. Every BrJ-Utsh 5ubjeft had a ri^ht to petition the House for relief in cases of seVere personal oppression, or of [J the nature which the prisoner stated he had un-^ergqpe.* ~ . Sir W. PULTENEY thought it would be for J the honour of the House to make inquiry relative .to the matters stated in the jjetiti^n. This in-1 j qOiry might be mnde in a Secret Committee,'and !*if jt should appear that -this man ha^ stated /falsehoods, they woi-ld be exposed, and a siop I thereby put to calumnies; and he thought this I would be a belter course than to resist all iu- ,'quiry*- " * T The ATTQRNET GENERAL remarked, jthat Le Mairrc1*! petition contained strong te-J fle&ions on his M'^iesty's Privy Council, ami also stated a variety of matter extraneous to the matter rof t!ie-petition itself. The rcfle&ion bn the Privy Council could form no part ofjhat -inquiry which the. Hon-. Baronet proposed to insthute. If the petition had been confined to personal hardships, he-should have had no objection to its beincr laid on the table; but tVe reflection which it container! was-indecent in itself, was.-ttofo&pded, �nd j^h^t-to t^hirh ihe prayer-of the ^tifian had.no j sort,,or relati n. T-fe-th-reforie thought ttiat to ' prevent pentions of this nature.from being pre-: sentu-3 to the House, it would be better ro rejeil s the present one. Mr. JOLLIFFE was of opinion that it would be better that the petition do lie upon the table. 1 Tt did not appear to him to contain any charge i against ihe Privy,Council, against his Majesty, or the Government of the country, or any thing that was in itself indecent or improper. " If this petition were refused,-no person aggrieved could ever' expeft relief, or to-be heard by the-House. He should divide the House upon the subjeft. Mi\ PITT, in explanation, observed that the petition stated that the Privy Council had com-miKed -I/e Maitre at the very tt'Qje they could noc give credit to the reports of spies and informers against him, &c. The petition contained a gnrs reflection upon Government, and  was totally irrelevant to that which professed to be its object, ^ir |j He "therefore thought it t.ught to be rejeftcd. Mr. SIMEON said,, ttat it was inconsistent ' I The papers tie mwi)t, were (nose parts of the cor re-^ondence Wween LQrd Otto and M. Grenville fa general laugh}-he. instantly corrected the slip, and said, those letters between M* Otto," Lord d[renviUe, &c. in the course of the late negocia*' I tiOjr^ which had been withheld, as from the whole correspondence, he asserted it would appear, that a secure and honourable peace with the enemy was apwdity attainable, though perhaps not through the medium of Hia Majesty's present Ministers. Tfie present session, he thought, was drawing; too near its clpse, for the discussion of a proposition of such nwgnftudc. He hoped, therefore, some other Noble Lord; more capable x>( giving force and consideration to the subjeft tj^an hiinself, would, shortljr after thfrassembyng.pt ihe Imperial Parliament, bring it forward : he $oped> soch vould be the case ;-should it not, hovv^r, he gave then the very earjy noh'ce, , other Peer con^c forward in the lo^tfial.
