Mr Juslice BavLEY-They have a (^ight to shew thai one of the parties attending Ihe meedng was under an indictment fur blasphemy aud seililioii, if they can. If you object lu it, 1 shall lake a note of yonr objection. Mr. Huul-1 do, my Lord, object to it. I considi?r it a very illiberal proceeding. ' Mr. Juslice Bayley-^Tlie Counsel for the prosecution have a light 16 put their case in the strongest point of view. Examination resumed-I know Carlile's slmpl I am-not rertaiu whether:! kuew that Carliie was under an indict'ment before J arrived. 1 know Wooler. His shop is in Fleets street. I believe it is, pretty notorious that Carlih-'s shop is called the Teoipte of Reason. The ollire for tlie Republican and Deijt is painted over the door. I have seen Hunt al a meeting al the Crown and Anchor Tavern. .Ilwasnn the death of Sir S. Romily. Sir F. Burden was in tbe Chair. This was the first lime i saw Hunt.' Mr.'Hunt-My l.�rdi it matters not wlielheror not 1 was at a public meeting with Mr. Carliie.' Every niauis presumed iiiuucent until proved guilty. Mr; licAHL^TT-He ivas under an iudiclment at Ihe time of his attending the meeting. Mr. Justice B^ylky-This is not evidence against the Defendants; it is nol proved that they koew he kept a shop of the kind described. ^ I was not at Carliie's (rial. 1 nevef was al a public meet-ing before the .10th. 1 saw the processions inarch through tlie town. 1 cauiiol say how many persons were on the field. The people were janiiued very close together.- 1.heard Air. Hunt's address. 1 was al a distance from Mr. Haul's cai-ricge when he nirived,aitd could not lell who were in it. Rer-examiued by; Mr. Hunt.-Tlie people were not drawn up in military order on the ground. Had the whole uieeling been in line, I probably might have furnird �ome idea of their uumbers. . I never heard thai Carliie had been con-victed. uf any crime before last August. 1 know ihat Wooler was tried before AugUet last; but I have uol hrar.d Ibat be wag convicted, I never saw you in company with either Carliie �rWuoler.. I Ihougbt Ibe people iu the field were ill avery.uumiiilury order. I saw nonewilh large slicks, ur with staves shuutilered -as soldiers carry muskets. It did not striketbatt.be people,luund tbe hustings looked like disciplined troops, reuily to protect you orflght for you, as occasion required.-. By the JuooE.^They did no,t appear ready lo fieht, for they had not anus. It ilid nut strike me, as a military man, ' that the parlies I saw must have hern drilled, in .order to enable ibei^t to walk'as they did, I Could, tell by the car if a body of troops were inurehliig, from their unifoimily of step. It d^d.UQt strike my ear thai the parlies ,1 saw were marching in miiriary order. I ihiuk the row� were some paces from'each other. To the best of my belief they did not lurk up as,soldiers do in marching. - The people stoo,d so close where 1 was'on the field as iiot lo he in a condition fur of-feusive operations.' Wm. Thelwali exantiined by Mr". Hunt.-I am a builder, and reside at Afanchester.

I.bearrf.iione of uiy acquaintance express any fears. The parlies inarcbed. lo the ground.
