ANSWER TO THE ADDRESS. The, Marquis CHUl - (be calaiailoiia.aod untimely death of bia Royal Highness tbe Duke of Keiit."-yAgreed to. Tlie Noble Earl IJien, proposed, that a Message of Condolence iiliouid be sent to her Koyal Highness the Duchess of Kent, to convey tu h<fr Royal Highness an assurance of the deep sympatliy and sorrow of the House Sn the melanclioly and untimely deiith of h?s Royal Hi^liness (he Duke of Kent. He could not move; this without stulipg io a few Words what bud come within hi!< own personal knowledije, that the timiable character and many virtues of tier Royal Highness in li peculiar manner entitled lier to this tribute of respect. Her Riiyal Higliness had ttot' long resiiled ^n, this coilutiy, aud therefore her excellent character add disposition could not be so ivell known as that of ot'her illiistrious individuals connected with the Ro^iil l^aditly. But,there wag no one who had ihte hoiioMi'of her acquaintance, but must be impressed' with the siroiigest seni'e of the excellent ^i^tilities of heart lind mind by which she was dis-tiiiguishiid; and nothing U de^ih had dissolved tiieirii to forgi'.u,bright ei^ample to. the couutty ; their coiidt(ct iu every ruipb'ct had be^n such as to eiideur them not (>�ly to tli(i^ Witbiu the circle of tlietr a6quaiD|atice, but to'tiie iiatioii.

Such vrasffie.aM: ^tiiittftlea df tli�:�oii�U7f 'i&uC^ and their tordsbips were aware Lliat lin Ae( of .paiw liaiiieiit had passtsd itt a certaiil time, he believed in (he reigo of King WiMiaiit 111., by which lite existenceof the. former Pitrliadieht was Gontiiioed for sis months after the Royal demise, provided his succesiar did not think proper to.'dissolve it sooner. His .principal object ilid beeb (o obviate any inconveniences which ntight. if rise from a disputed succession; but he was perfijctly ready lb admit, that sTithout taking vhe extceme case of a disputed ^soccesaion, there (night b^inaiiy difficulties at the beginning of a Dei� reigiiy tvhicii niigbt reiidirr it advisable that Parliament should imm>!-diutely assemble. But Ihe Act meritf�proi'ided for the assembling of Parliament, witboiiE'directing, that it shoisid at all enter ou business, leavin? it altogether to the diacretiou of the King whether li� should Kuffer.lhe two Houses to continue sitting, or dissolve them. But the law did oot allow its existence to be protracted hey.otid the period of six months. Such was the state of (lie law, and he admitted that since the period of its enactment it had not been usual lo dissolve the Parliameut till certain poinig of business of un iaiportant naluri;, and particular ly (he state of (he civil li�(,' had been �e(tled. But the latter was a (]iiesliv>u which more pecolinr-ly concerned the interests of the CroWa, and.there-' fore, if the Crowli tliuughi proper .to waive'ttsoWn immediate interest on this uccusioii, out4jf it'-regard for the commoii convejiieuce and weifarei-lie knew uf no public reason Mgaiiist the course proposed, and the immediate dissulntion of Parliameut. If this ijitroduced any alteration, it was only this,ibut instead of inviting the attention of Parha�ient h3�. lily to such w important question as the state of (he Civil List, it afiforded miore tim.e for its due consideration. His fVIajefty's adi^is^rs did oot irisb to bring that great question before the Legislature precipitately, but to allow ample-leistire lac deli* berating ou it. Looking therefore to what was past, he saw no reason why this or the other Hiauie should object, on the scorf; of precedeut, to the mode of proceeding now contemplated.' That being so, the present question resolyed itMlf into this--what was Ihe course, the roost cunveuient and most expedient, for the public interests) And when Ihey took into consideration the impOrtaot nature of (he business haoging. over froui their bite meedng, and that of the public business geu�-rally, independent of the Civil List, he put it ( their Lordships, wbether,.in the expectation of the proceedings affecting themselves, which would necessarily take place by laiy, after a siiort period, and the preparations usually made throOghout the country for supporting tbeif own interests'du aucb an oGcaajon, it was likely that Ihe other'Ho>Me coulil pay the necessary degree of atfeotioii-to boii-iiess, were they toslt for the term the law periuitteti. He asked, whether it wasnot more fitting that the important questions, tq bei shortly agitated in tbe-Legialttture, -should not berseut before  new Parliament, lo receive tbe calm:and deliberate exami-na(ioo due to them? He hati oow *lii(�d the grounds on which the �dvic� bad been given' to ' his Majesty^ to send daw~n tbe rMessaiJe, recois-roending the course which bad been deemed most . proper for the dispatch of the: bvHitess of ih'e country, and most conducive to. the publiij iuterests. The S^obleJEarl tbei� moved ai^.Aitswer to hi* Majesty's Message, pledging (be House tu a i-oncur-reiice'in (he measures (herein recumaieitd'ed. .
