(iitt'erii^ces subsisting in the Royal, family may vr-t iie omicably adju.sled, it is impossible for me tn iiiierpose an obstacle in the way of *a happy an event, i cannot, however, my LoriJs, avoid rKuiurk-in^ upon the very extraordinary state in which this iniesiioii i,ow stands, in consequence of the very iiiHiriiiiri conrge of proceeditig pursued by iiis f-ij;:>ty'B iVlinisters. Upon a lorraer occasion I wiiv mip-ilpij by strong feeling to declare my opi-iii'!i, ilian this House hsd incnrreil a very i.',reat 'I'^-iiice by its course of proceedintc 'U this iiiaUer, �| 'i / cniil'ess, that I have since found no leaeon thinking that the expression was too strouj^. iifis has befallen us in consequence of the VHcillatiiig and dubious conduct of a set of Winislers who have neither the sense to aiake op iheir minds upon this matter, nor the courage t'l aive such advice to their Sovereign, and act "I'oii il, as would be consistent willi the dijrnity of tiie Crown and the interests of the SiMe.^fifear.J - There was either of two things which it was competent for them to do. If,.on exatniuing the.papers now laid upon your Lordships' table, they cpn-cmed that there were grounds sufBcient for pro-teedinji; against her Majesty, they should, eiiber have proceededagainst beri openls, and uptiii their question, for 1 deeply feel the shame that liB!- fallen on the House. VA'hen first ihe bat; was laid upon the table it was understood to contain inalters of siu-li det;p and dark criminality as would " frit;ht the isle from her propriety;" yet we have since the in-vesti);atiou of it adjourned iroiu day lo  stances which govern tlieir conduct. Adjournment and adjournment has thus " crept on in petty space" from week lo week, and now we are again required lo consent to further delay. Ttiis course �l proceeding is most objectionable. Still I do not now oppose the postponement, though I protest against the course aliogetlier. We have heard uiucli of the "dignity" of this House, and thai the proceedings of litis House should not depend upon the measures pur. sued by others ; yet we are now governed by the acts of the House of Coinnioiis, and must mould our proceedings by their discretion, rionie papers respecting the recent negociaiiom have been laiil upon your talile, and a more curious specimen of domestic dijtlomacy was never exhibited to the world-f Hear, hear J-and it lias been since nn-derstood that a motion is to be made on these papers in the House of Commons, and this. House must await its result. Such conduct cannot tend lo your Lordships' dignity, and to tins state we have been reduced by the condoct of )iis Majesty's iVJiiiisters, whose iiideci.sive conduct has involved themselves and your l^ordships in (lii-grate."-(//ejir.) The Earl of LlVEltpool--" Alter what has fallen from the Noble Earl, 1 feel it, my Lonls, itnposii-ble not to say a few words in justification of the conduct pursued by myself and those with ^\wm I have the honour to act. It is one of llie p-iinfiil peculiarilies of our present state thai 1 am iiot as yet able tn eiiier into a full expli'iiiniion of the nalure of these proceedin;;;?, or of the advice whlth the Ministers of Hie Crown Ifive given tn their Sovereign ; bnl I trust to your Lordships' candour, lliiit uiili! the hour of exiilaioilion shall urrive yon will give iiie credit when 1 assure yiiu that J and llie other AJinistei a of I he down have not' shrunk I'rOm our duly,' or from giving such x\(\-vice to Ins Miijesly as�e i.'oiiceived Ui he necessary for maintaining tiie honour of llie Crown and llie interests of the country. J on lay niy hand upon iny heart and declare, if it wi^c llie last hour of ray lilc, that aliliough no business in which I ever was engaged was so persoiuilly painful to iriy feel. ingS, yet there never was a cise oii wiiich 1 could look hack wilh more pride and salislaclioii to the conduct of the loiifidenlial advisers nf the Crown, with regard both to llilir duty to llieir Sovcrcig.....id to the country, than the case now |;endiiig. i sliail be ever ready at the proper time to explain the conduct of his Majesty's Ministers ; but if I now abstain froih entering iiilo it, it is not from any apprehensions of the opinion ivhich Furhanient and �the cotintrv would entertain upon Ihe subject. .As little ground is there lor impnling diRgruce lo this House. 'I'rue it is that the House did, on receiving a cominiioicalioii fr(mi the Crown, consent, a> is customary in all such cases, in refer the papers lo a Cninuiitlee ; and no less tiUe is it, that the Flnuse has postponed the immediate exaniiiiiition of these papers upOti the recommendation of the Ministers of the Crown; who alone in this House are acquaiiiled with the contents of tho�e paperi.- But I will p,ut it to your Lordships as an ahsti'^ct question, if the Ministersof .(Jie Crown were upon any subject to ask for the "May of a few ilays, it was eVer or would ever be refused The Noble Earl has said, that if the proceeding has not been disgraceful lo the House, it has, however, been disgraceful to the Minjsters of the Crown. Upon this point, I can do nothing more than lo repel the iniputalion. 'I'he grounds upon which the Ministers of the Crown have acted are great political princi|Jies, and until the hour of expluna-� lion conies, I wilj not ask of the Noble Earl the justice which I know he will not grant me, hut I  loask it from your Lordships in general, and that you �iill suspend your judgment until it can be iurmed upou a full ktiowledge of all the. circumstances."-[Hear, hear.) Earl Spencer said, he would not objict to this motion for the further postponeinent of the inquiry, but liatl he been present in the HouseUr in the country when the proposition was ttrSt made lor the appointment of a Secret Cominiltee, he shonld have done all'in his jwwer lo dissuade llieir LoH-ships from adofrfing so unwise and unsafe a inta-sure.-{Cries of Hear, kecif,'' from t/te Oppssi-lionBendies.)-He should now of course liow�lo the decisipn of ihe HoUse, yet he iiii;iht be permitted tb eipress.jhis opinion upmi tlie subject.-iu his mind originally wrong, 'ore op|)ost the poslpijneioent'>ji ' Tli^measure beiiig,i (i^'slibulit ,iiot tllei^fi own responsibilitV, or n.t nt nil.

J | Lord EM.ENDoaouo.H said, if.he,Vpuld agree j with the Noble Earl on hi�*tdejof the House (Lord j GTey)i that the proceedings of their Lordships, in i so frequently post ibiving. (bis subject, had involved them in disgrace, lie shuAild not vole as that Noble Earl was resolved to diij-.iti.Favour of a furtber.ai}-jourtimeni ; ret theN^e^njrl agreed Ip tlvino-tion On preuisely>hi0^^iK^1^B1^tttt~tis itiid on former occasions' equally prevailetj, ftamely, ihu a hope stilt remained of a tinni and amicable adjustment. He could not think ihat the conduct hitherto pursued by lliis House were cwiouluted to involve it in disgrace. The udjonrninenls had not, in fact, taken place, because of any circumstances thdt had occurred elsewhere, hut because Ihe same causes which operated elsewhere were found to be equally effective upon their Loidsliips-fHear, heurj-although it happened, from the different circumstances of tlie fiouse of Commons, that Ihe suggestion for alttuipling to cuiiclnde an amicable arrangement should be fir*t inatle in lhat House.- He had always entertained apprehensions that no successful result couUi be expected from the late netjocialioii-nor ilid he think lhat any attempt at an arrangement could be atteiuled with complete success, unless ii were made tinder the iiumediuie saiiclion and direclion of Parliament. The , Legislature should take into iisown hands the an-bilration which the Queen was willing lo leav^ to individuals. He could not but think that the honour of Sovereigns depended upOti the opinion of their people, and lhat Parliament was the f'afr representaiive of Ihe opinions of the people of Eiighiiid, and the guardians of their Princes' characters. No disgrace, therefore, could happen to any of the Royal Family, in pursuing u line of coniluct conformable to the expressed opinion of Parliament. Lord Holland-The Noble Baron who spoke last had sail lhat he assented, to t'he, present inotinu f't the reasons assigned by the Noble Earl opposite, yet he at the same time had acknowledijed, that he entertained no hope of any success from negociation, unless Parliament were to uiiderliike the direction of it. This, no doubt, was a notalile reason for voting that Pu.liament should further postpone the consideration of the subject. '1 he Noble 15al^on had also observed, thai; ibeir Loril-ships hod not been itiHue.'iced in any respect by the proceedings in the Hou;e "f Commons, but by certain moiive.*, which equallv operated lipon both Hou-es. There undoubtedly was somelhiog ingenious in this "icw of the sub-jerl ; yet it happened soniewhal sjiii;ii!�r!y, that those caiives should regiiiaily operate upon the fjniise of Loi^ijs exictl^l^i the day after ihey had spent their power iipimr ihe ot',;..-r House.-(tlear, lieiiT, dud a hiuvk on Ihe Opposition side.) - U might not be improper to remark to their Loidsliips, lhat they were then assembled debating Hiis s'jbjecf by mere accident, 'I'he Marine Mnliny IVlll, whicii had passed wiihout one word, was tlie ciiise of their having been sninmoned. When his Noble Relative (the l\Iai-qiii,of Lansdown) asked on the previous evening why they were summoned, the Noble Eiirl opposite (Lord Liverpool) told him that Ihe House were suniinoned for the Marine Mutiny ISill, and tlial he was not aware of any other muUcr uf importance. He did not object tn the present motion; he should be glad indeed if tlie meeting of the ^^mmitlee were (lut off' altogether. The Noble E.vrl this evening, in a lofty lone, disclaimed any iinprojier motives on the jiarc of his Majes'v's Miiii^ieis, and declareil that he found himself in a iHust piiinfiil situation; but the greater part of tins pain consisted in his not being able to ftale In the House the reasons of Ins past con u�e tif Lpnls yiel.l itself to their dlicretion, with such little Credit !i- ih�- |n>seiit.
