He had for want uf that assistance lust the impression made upon him by the opening evidence. After the examination by the Counsel had terminated, many of their Lordships would feel a desire to fill up the testimony hy putting questions of their own, which, unless ihcy had the evidence before them, they were nut likely to remember. It wuuld be said that the diOirulty of furnishing printed copies of ihe evidence daily would he loo great. He could hardly think su, for tu his great astonishment, the whole uf each day's evidence Was inserted at full length io some uf the Morning Papers. He did not vouch for ihe accuracy of the reports. A single syllable difleringfroni the testimony'might produce a great difference in tbe effect of an answer. It would be better for their Lordships to have their own vouched copies; but as far as he had observed the Newspaper 'ce|Htrla, thiy seemed .lOrllioi to be perfectly correct. Aod, Iherefare, he wished 10 move that the evideuce should be printed aod copies delivered from da.y Io day of Ihe proceedings of the ilay before. The Earl of Ijluoerdale thought that it would be advisable: for>attp CflANCELtos said, that Ihe House ought io know wital steps were necessary to he taken in order to furnish copies of ihe evidence printed. No papera could be printed for the House with a view to being liitA by Ihe House in its proceedings, which the clerks of Ihe House were not resjiousible for. As to the*printing of the evidence in the News|>apers, that was brought aboul by persouswho fuund thei'r'way-beluw the'bar, whether properly or not he would nut say, who were in comn}unication cv^ry quarter or half hour with theacveral presses to which-Ihfy belonged. The case was different with Ihe House itself. The ehort-hand writer took notes, which were wrilleu out and delivered tu -Ihe clerks. They drew a fresh copy, which was used at the Parliament office, after being compared with Ihe original.-Wlien prinfed al Ihe ParlfaHient office, the clerks wefe un-swerahle for the accuracy of its cout>nls. This made, it nearly impossible to deljver the copies from morning to morning. If their Lordships chose Io relax from their own rule and practice they might do so. He was ready li> admit that jiuiWitbslandIng (be length of his professional experience, the copy of evideuce would be-useful to his memory. 3uf there were ve^y strung objections tu priuling it.
