But if in the discharge of his duly, as Counsel for her Majesty at the bar of their Lordships' House, besbould faif to convince them of the impropriety of the piinciple of the Bill, he trusted that they would attnbute that defect ot argument, nut to the weakness of the cause,- but the imperfect talents of the pleader. In arriving at this stage of- the proceeding, he came to the Secret Committee which hud been appointed to investigate the merits of the case, to whom a quantity of private papers' land documents, had been referred for that pur. pose. These had been compared to the proceedings of a Grand -Jury fandiug a bill. He would not travel over the grounds of that argument, whicii had become beaten already by repetition-he would not contf&&t the finding of -a ' particular and .defined, fact of crime by a Grand Jury, with this finding of po intelligible crime or accusation by a mere accumulation of evidence- out he would point out the striking diflerence which appeared,to him to exist ietween the Report ot the Secret Committee, and a bill of indictment found by a Grand Jury on a charge of felony. The first thing which slracl^ htm in the want ot resemblance between the Secret Com initteeand the Grand Jury hading a bill,.to which their proceedingj- had been hkeped, was that the Secret Committee was not (he body by which this Bill was found.-^It was not.^th the Secret Committee that the BiJI, had origina'ed-rrthey had not even recommeifded it. They.hud recommended an inqairyi it wasitruet but .they had not found any accusation ; thty had not said that the.facts alleged in the Bill wete in proof before-ihem, alid jf they were in proofj-they had not said that this Bill was necessary for the exami-natiou.of those facts.. The Committee hadvonly recoiomencied.a solemn inquiry; they staled that they had examjued the docnmeuts placed before thein^ which documents,.it -was not. pretended, were supported by any testimony before the Committee, muci). less by any testimony given on oath. But the Repoxtj of the .Committee conveyed^ijt stated by the docutnents laid before .theft, which was the substance of evidence '.given.iby various foreigners, in sundry; fimes and places,, .that un.adulterous intercourse had been � carried: on, 1�X the ftueen with a certain tndividual -thai siaiihrcbiiduct seriously affected the^ morals of lh^iCouutry,ithe.dignily- of the Crown, and so , PJtv.r..Th.ejvCoiaiijittee gave  it as their, opinion^ ,Jha] .mpdei of PxainiBation. would -be a |egniat;ve proce>!dtng.
