MISS BURNEY'S NEW WORK. This day is published, the Second ^il'Ii"". 3 rpALKSOF FANCY. BytVUSS BUUNEY. a. Author of" Cl4rfnline"-^�'<iVailaof ^at^lre," &c. Vol. I. containing Ihi'Shipwrerfe, V'ols. Il.aii'd 111. Country Neighbours. Either of ilie Tales may be had separately. Prinled for Henry Colburn aud Co. Conduil-sirecl. COPIOUS REPORT tioiis iipoii them, except those who caused them to be made, or who Kubse(|uently, by their acts, approveil aud adopted them. On the subject whether this particular meeliiig wa.s calculated lu inspire lerroi, you must lake the proof of such witnesses as shall prove to you lhal such vvas Its inevitable tendency in llie view of rational minds. That terror may be meiliate or Immediate, perhaps under ail the circumstances of this .itteeting, no imiTiedi�ite breach of tlie law was in view-that lovks likely, from the prohiisctions asscntblakre of women and chihlren, wboweie ill ihe crowd. But then there may be a conlcmplation of prospective ilanger, aud the parties may be sounding their way towards lliB accomplishment of their nllimale object. Il is my duty also to tell yon that a meeting may assemble for a peifectly legal purpose, and yet luay become illegal from subsequent arts ; such as, for instance, if any evil person shoulil have the will aud jiuwer lo give a wrong direclion 10 a body of people, who were thereby rendered capable of doing grei.t mischief. It is true, that yon have no evidence here lhat those who were Ihe leaders of that meeting did so instigate the people; on the conliary, you have beard that their addresses w trcrecominendalory ofpeace audquiel. W'lth r "pecl to Moorliouse, they had it in evidence that he was a religious man; such a persun was therefore unlikely lo do ail art that would militate against Ihe precepts of religion. Mrs. Moorliouse was also nt that meeting, and in an advanced slate of pregnancy, a circunislance strongly in his favour. 11 is most important that you should keep yonr eye upon the slrucliiie of Ihe indictment. In Ihe lut Count, Ihe Defendants are charged with assembling together with others, for the purpose of inciting the liege subjects of the King lo a con-teuipl and hatred of his Majesty's Government. They are also cliargr.J with meeting in what is called military array, an 1 with divers seilitious and inflammatory ensigns, to the great alarm and terror of the peaceable suhjtfCis of our liege Lord Ihe King. I will tell you what the best writers say on Ihe subject of what conslitutes an unUwful assembly : ' Any great meeting which is allended wilb such circumslauces as cannot but endanger the public peace, and raise fears and jealousies among the King's Bnbjccia; for inslaiire, meeting together armed and in a warlikeinanuer, in order lo consult abuni a redress of grievances, for no one can foresee what may be the efl'ecl of such an assewibly." If, therefore, Inking all together, the circuiUKlancesof the meeting were calculated 10 produce terror, then it became illegal. Il is nol necessary, I repeal, lhal the danger should be cunsidered immediate; it 15 enough if il be only prospective, then you will find a special verdict,finding the Defbudauts guilty, if such you I hink was Iheir pruspeclive object of intendiug.ulliniale, though not instant danger. Yon have heard much said of ihe muvemenU oftrowd.s uf people marching in what was called " military step ;" and with respect to this it might be a� well lo stale at Ibe outset, lhat as it seemed Mr. Hunt and Mr. .Moor-house proceeded in a coach, it was possible Ihey could not have seen Ibis sort of marchiug, and ought nut therefore lo be heltl responsible for it. Again, wilii respect to ihe banners, unless Ihey were meant in an illlegal sense by Ihe par. ties, who concurred iu bringing tliein to the field, they could not be held answerable for iNem-for instance, Ihe flag wi^ih Ihe inscription^" Equal Representation or Death," must be considered in the sense in which we are lo presiirae 11 wi!iH intended, ft no doubt is highly ille|;al and seditiuiusj if imencled to recummend .or imply by the atternalire^ that equal represeDlaliun liilist be Uucondiliunally ubiaiued, ot life sacriticed in Iheatletnpt; inn agaui, it may not be so, if meant as Mr. Hunt said il was, to explain thai unless tluy (ihe people) wereiqually lepre-enled, the ron.,equenie moil be thai Ihey slioof I he .�iiarveil lo death. A.s lo the Hag im. scribed " No Curo Law.^," if it were. t;> be cooslrucd h� meaning thai the people \eonld have no �i!Cll bl.�s, lhat they would I'oicihiy resist iliem if enacted hy the Legislatu.'�, Iheii indeed such an inseriiilion mrrsl be considered as illi '.;al ill all extreme degree, but if it m.erely ineaiil loe.vpress nn opinion that Ihc people di.~liked the Corn Laxs, thut tlo^ ui-hed nol for their euaclnienl or cootiunanee, and lespeet. folly 1 eciMtlniendetl Iheir opiiii.nis to the eniisiileratliui of llie Le/islatore, Iheu indeed Ihe case was illflrrcul, and (be in-seripiion haimless. Something had also been said of a C'-p of liberty. I know ifo.t what siguificaliun allaches to \\\\^ emblem in this pan of the couniiy, but in general I know ii is nol a sediiiuus symbol, for il is a etna I !y one of the insignia uf our t.'rowo, and is raiiltil about by an "ifficer uf stale al times of public procession where the King moves. Yon li;ive also iu tfviUenee lhal no p,ild\c or private business was slopped by the ineetiug: ibis stroog'y confirms Ihe opinion lhat no immedtale dansrer was conleuiplated by the meeting. Much of Ibe evidence bel'ore you wa� conversational. 1 think It iny duty lo state lo. you that this is Ibe very wur^l species of evidence ihiil can be leceivrd in a Court of .lusliee ; parties are liable lo coiislaiit misapprehensions respi cling cou-versati(ois; the alltralioii of a wird so alleis the tenor of expressions, and they make so u:f>erenl an impression .ip.m Ihe recollections of dill'ereiit puiple, Ibal lilt le reliance ein be placed upon ihem ; i tliereforealtacb little inipoitiinre to what Entwisllc says in t liis respecl, fori ibiiik i I (.� is mistaken. il is, ihen, inneh more desirable to rest u|)on acts than words. As to the phrase used by a iiiao in the ciMiwd, " \Ve'll make a .Moseow of it," thai I iluuk uf little value, and nol to be charged on lb** meeting, for perhaps you will feel that a crowd so mixed u)i on that day wilb women and children, wa3 lill.le caleulaled lo eiiti r, at that time, into the views of incendiaries. If the object of this meeting was reform-mil Ibal il �a.i meant lo be pursued witbont any hrea( li of the law, then llie peo-pie had a right to remain and express their resoiiuioiin accordingly, so long as they kepi themselves within the pale of Ihe law. As lo the Iniking of arms, this could not liave been meant lo pre.seni oppo.vition to cavalry, lor the superiority of a maiion horsebaek wiiuld eiiable hiui lo surmount any such effort lo retard bis progress. Ii was\ecy probable lhat this arrangement alone took place to .'..'enie an open space iinmedialely aroniiil Ihe hustings."-The Learned Judge Ihen recapitulated the voluminons evidence given npou the trial, \^'ben be came to thai eif Mr. fluitoii, he remarked, be Ihoughl it probable Itial a .Magistrate, Uoow. in? the great responsibility intrusted tu him, and that drillings had been carrying on, aud that his imperious duly called n()on him lo act upon a sudden emergency, he thougiil it probable that a man so placed may be agitated, and nnt cool during the lime he was considering thai he might he-come highly criminal if he snflrriil such proceedings lo go lo such length as lo endanger lhe:-peace of Ihe town. Th.il witness stated Ibe depositions ^Ppecling the alarm of the inbabitauls; but here those depositions, if there were a million of them, conhi be of no avail; for the Jury were bound alone lo attend to vi-^a voce evidence given in upeo Court. Nadin'i slaleinint to Mr. Hulton may jusmy ihe falter in issuing the warrant ; hut then Ibe Courl aud Jury were placed in a silualipn of difficulty respecting the necessity of Nadin's application in the first instance, in conse. quencciif lhat person's uul being produced �u the wiluc-s' box. He believed .Mr. Hulton lo he a respectable man, who would not mislead them, but he must say, that such important evidence as he had given, ought nol lo be p'ermilied to want that corroboration which il might have had Iroiu bis brother Magistrates who were iu Ihe room wilb biii�, .aud from Nadin the coutiahle. ft was due to Ihe Difeodauls to urge ibis want of corr<ihorativc evidence on sn n>cei-'ded lo ihs lui-t-iogs to poll fir the youiiij C nidifiiite.
