They cuuM never call on the Alturney -Or Sulicilur. General Jo sum up the evidence or closejheca.se until llie cruss-examiuaiiuti of llieir oWn wlt�cs-ses should have been coucluiicd.    The course suoght to he followed would be he one of nionstrnu.! inconvenieuce.   He thought thai tlti:i iiivestigition slioulit gu uu like any Olbrr case, first in exainiiiaiioii in chief, llieii .sr cross-exsmiualiou, afitrwards a re-examinaliuu  by ihu Counsel for the Bill, and afterwards au ixauiinaliuii by their Lordships; and  if afterwards any sjiecial. reasoii cuuld be stated why witnesses should be called i� Ihe b.ir a secoodlime, he was sure their Lordsliips would be ready tu view the applicaliuu with greater liberality and iuilulguucu than could be extended iu any ordinary case.   He diil'ered from the Noble Lord therefore iu ihiokiiigytfaat lur .Majesty's Counsel ought not lo receive aiiy:po$er uf pnltiu.; utf any cruas-examiiialiun, in order IP uriglnale it at any subsequent point af-|iuie, but tl>at going oi) with lherru..is-examiualiou of wiluysses regularly, tbey.ihiipld uoi be refused Ihe right uf Calling up any witness for a rriietiied^ i-ro��-examinatioo, in case they could shew sulBcieul biiccial gr.)uud3 lo render ii necessary. Lord Erskine explained. The Marquis.pf .Lansdown said be was anxious to say a few VOtdsuU.lhe present occasion, having beeu one of tlin,.' -�^b%,4>B:Saturaay, bad wished ibal Cuuuael should be caltxl 10 tbe bar,aud that the Counsel against the Bill shouKI slate what departure from the usual course of croiis-examinatiuit tbey judged necessary to meet tbe circiiniftlunces of Ibe case, and their reasons for such departure; and ihai the Counsel for the Bill should be heard agninnt the argunieuls of the op. posite Counsel. In recuiuineiidiug that course he certainly liad by no means meant thai it was to be understood thereby lhat Cainnael were dictating lo or laying.down any pusiiire rule for their Lordships' guidance; buL he had ihunght lhat 11 their Lordships might see reason fur deviating from the ordinary rules by which the Courts of law were governed i:i the reception of evidence, it might be'salisf.clury to their Lordships tu bear llie Counsel on both sides offering ibeii-reasons for and ag-ainsi such departure; and iuslruclhig their Lordships,especially those amongst them who were uninformed, as be confessed himself lo be, of the parlicularH ot' Ihe subject; and be t^ mght Ibe Noble Earl oppusile (L.-ul Liverpool) badbimself acknowledged ihe i-easunibleuess ufiL,; same step, when be on Saturday nut only di.l uul oppose llio King's Allorney-Giineral slating his arguments againil l)i<: mode of cross-examination rpniended for by the Queea'-i Altoruey General, but aUo defended the right of ihe form, v to make such slatemcul, wheu it was called iu question by a Noble Lord. He was sure that if llieir Lordsdiipa saw reason for adopting a rule dilferenl from those allowed iu common cases, and which might operate wiih severity ou either party, they would find it satisfactory in allow ihe party which would be so flffecied by it to shew cause against ir.v rule, and let the oilier party reply, tu appeal lo Counsel fui-arguments as to tbe lyearing of the p-iriioular rule on liic case. He agreed perfectly in the recollection of the Nubie Earl, lhatlbesubject uf'an adjourned cross-rxaaiiualiuu wa.i not under the cunsideralion of the House at the lime of m adjournment ou Saturday, but not being uuder il.^ con-.i-deration then, it was a proper subject to engage its atteu-tiun subsequently. When the Noble Earl (Lord Liverpool) affirmed that, in consenting tu allnw her .Majesty a rea'iun-able-time before her Counsel should be called ou to crus!.-e'xamiiie the witnesses in support uf ihe Bill, he was Hcee.l. lug. to'that wkicli was a full equivalent, and more (lia.i � 'an equivalent for Ihe advantages- which would be derive.l from furuiahing her Majesty wiih a list of tbe witiiessis iii support of tbe Bill, giving,!he Noble Earl credit fur wishing to put her iMajesty in as good a giluatiuu as if ihe list uf witnessea bad been grauled, slill knowing, us he did, th.; great advantages of an immediate croas-examiualiun atler the terroiuaiiun of tbe examination iu chief, he cuuld no: help believing that it wss not .4o their Lordships'power Ui give her Majesty any equivalent for thnt advantage withheld from he^.
