As soon as passible a Bill would-be br4iHgiit in.        i . A new.writ wasvcdered to-be issued, for a burgess to servp i^) tbe nounl;ofiiLurd Jacelyn,:called to the House of Ee�i� Q�ideelJieJi*(e of-Eatl-Rqdeo,: ' - [)t?ctiiig the conduct of her Majesty the Queen.-[Here the Honourable and   Learned  Gentleman  went into a statement of the proceedings winch had already taken place from the lime of bringing down the green bags till the Report of the Committee appointed   to search the Journals of.llie Lords, by tihich the House were informed of the ntroductioii  of the Bill of Pains and Penalties into the House of Peers.]   The Report of the Secret Committee of tlie Hou?e pf Lords had been laid on the iable of that House.   The docamenl was now, consequently, common to both Houses, as it regarded the purposes of inquiry, because it shewed tliat an inquiry was pending.   He, read the passage from tbe Lords' Report, which alleged the necessity of solemn inquiry, no less for the sake of the Queen ihau that of the King ami  the Royal Family.   Thus it appeared to  him that the House were so far in possession of the proceeed-ing as the  possession of that docuriient went ; it   pledged   tbe  HooSij  to  nothing   as  it respected the Bill of Pains and Penalties;  they would be at liberty to do as they pleased with it when it should come before them.   There was before PurliaiDent, as an exislinjjand compact body, a proceeding in esse at kast, aud the proof of :t lay in the document to which he li.id alluded.- He saw a flight Hon. Gentleman (.Mr. Tierney) shake his head, as if in objection to the argument whitb lie had adduced, and certainly the shaking ' of the Right Hon. Gentleriiau's head was enough to shake the ppintons of most iVJembers of that House ; 3iit all'thiit lie.iiacf urged was, that the [iepot-l ot the L.ofds wag proijf that iliere was a proceeding in train ni; progress through the Parliainent.   If right ill fiis preJHistes,' was it iiot the duty of ihe Hoijse, . in rrga^d to it's own cHafactii; ' for 'justice, to take and mailifest interference witli the purposes of justice    Bjit though the case w-is new, the offence wa* a very lixld one.   In  Lord Slrafi'ord's case it was manifest lhat he had been run down and condemneH by libels and clamour out of doors, tone hefoif I'i < impe-ichment   before   Parliament.    Htc   ii,iI.<--J they had n  fiial precedent of the H .Mi-e.    Ti e . ill-fated   Nohletnan was   not   tneil   within   I'm-liament until he was hnnled down willuxit the House.    The   same   case  was   now   observable wilh   respect   to   the Queen.   Guilt   iva.s aitri-bu'ed   to  her to an iinineasurable   exlmt ; she was, in fact, fully condemned belbre her trial had cnmoienced.   He acknowledeed that the'cii-ts wVn? not in alt respects alike.'   It was impossible.fi. r mons would be inflnenced by such tra^li as�piienrecl in ihK Luminary.   But this was not enoni;li ; llie.i-was the potentiality of the libel to produce mischief.   It was not to hg^^ut>p-n-borongh deiioininaieii that libel as a,: |iuhlicai;n'i highly criminal, becaiHse it described the Plainiiff as a criminal and a monster.  But here the accuseii, though Queen of ihese realms, was not nienlioned in reference to any trial.   She wiis branded  '.viiji guilt, and sullied wilh the foulest laiij�iiage wliich it was possible to apply to any human beiii-,'.    Hf had another opinion to quote, of no less auihrr:tv than the former.    Lord Hardwicke, in a civil sup, had committed a man for pubiishino; llie  prncenl-ings (if his suit hef^e the cause came to  be lied.'. And yet in this cjse it was inipos.ili!- f,ir iiijiir-,' to happen, as there wa.s no one's niiinl   ti> ii.Hutn^ r, except the Lord Chancelim's, cou'i-c^cd wiili \if. decision of the case.   Another aiillmnty whici. i e had to quote was that of a Ju(lg>-, no less iva'cli-fnl of the   interests  of justice   than   llie   oili-r two.    Lord  Erskine had   commiUKl  a'man   for writint;   an abusive   letter   to a   (lai'y   eug-.^jeil in a su t^in the Court of Chancery.   These wfrr; extreme cases,   and   he only   invoked   them lo shew the  great  force and extent   of the   principle which he was endeavouring lo maintain.- Another case which he^ quoted was iliat uf a libel ci Bignold, an excise o Beer, who had killed a man in the execution of his duty.   While he was m prison waiting for his trial, a stuteriieiit was pi:l)-lished of the particulars.    The Attorney-General had filed  an information against  tlie''publisber, and Mr. Justice Heath had declared that it was impossible  that the  charge cuuld be fairly tried after Ihe   publication  of that libel.   Such  wer� the  first  fruits of the   little  industry  he   htd been able to apply to the subject.   He appcdl-eii to the belter ki.owleilg� of Members  for tl'e protection of the privitr;ir-. of lliat House.    lie culled on iheni lo shieldthe ilUislrious accused frm -the shafts of calumny, and afJbrd her that protection which the laws were generally found to lavish upon the meiinest agent of tlie revenue.    If the offence should be consider^ as no breai;h of privilege, he would then move, that ihe Attnrn.ey-Generat should be instiucted to prosecute the author of the libel, which he had to subiiiit to the altijniion of the House.   He concluded his speech by,moving, that the publisher and printer of tlindaWs iVesltrn Luminary shoaXA  be required to atitjnd at the bar . of the House. The Speaker wished jo know uiider what cha-  racter the paper waslo be offeri;i| to the afteii^iop of t|iie Hoiise, whether MS, a {jreueh of P.flXjj?!?? pif not?
