He wfsbed it to be explicitly understood that il was by no m.eans his intention lo suggest any tiling; either with the view of coinpaiis-iiig. ihexlegradaiion of the Royal Family, or even of abridging, ill any the most minate particular, the rights of the Crown, those rights requisite for sop-puriiiig its weight in the consutulion, or maintaioiug its dignity and just splendour.-f Hear, J-If at any part of our hisibry it tvould have been criiriinal to endeavour lo deprive the Crown of any thing necessary for upholding its place in the State, for securing its rank, power, and honour, and securing therewith the safety, traoquiiiily, antl happiness of the subject, for which the whole of the regal authi�-rity was only a trust, such a design would bealtogei^ ther criminal in these times-^ Hear J-forhemost entirely agreed with the most strenuous advocates for tlie rights of the Crown amdtig Gentlemen oppokiie, ill the opinion that th�'se were not limes to laoif/er with the security of existing esta. blishments, and he desired no Geptleman in the House to give him his support till he should have it proved to him that the measure he ineaiit to propose was not only i -cedent   and   founded   on  sound   conatitutiollal priiiciplea.    There  was no occasion for bim to enter into a diikctic explanation of what the funds ifl q-ueKtiun   were, o> to enter into a his. lory of their origin, {wogrets, or amount, npv and M former times.   He sliould assume tba< Gentlemen were ucquuiiitecj with all these thiqgs, and should confine liimseir lo shewing that s.oine such measure as he cpntenvplHted' wa^ called for by t(ie sitiialion of the King and of the coontry ;. it .was an old and established maxim of tbe Ciiistitution, sanctioned by the opinion uf the greatest lawyers, a� well tlipse who had uecuijied the Bench, as those who had not, it wa� a principle 8tippoiti;d by the coiisisteof current of ull |i;; teri Lor^ ClareqdoB,, Te?iion�trat�d :,t*itfi hi* t^Jn-jesty, and used the fi>lip^ii;g CQnatittitionat tatt-guage:    If a treasareT caii bsnrthei^astot^y of ofyoiir Majesty's treatore,,and. bf disposing of tlie same without accounting lpt,ii i|i the regular conni-tntional manner^ your Majesty may be;abpiniiiuhJy cozened; and the only_ mode of digposjng of tlie same is by ihe Great Seal or the Privy Seal ;" ane pf them^yi will in like manner as a 8i�bj.ect ap^.t do.
