The Ghancellor oC tlie ; Excbeqceu moved that a Committee should be appointed to iiispect the Journals of tiie Lords, itv order to ascertain what progress had been made with the Bijl of Paltis and Penalties against the Queen. Mr. Serjeant Onslow, iu a feiv senieoceB (nliich the interruptionii of a crowde-d galiery prevetiied us from collecting "with enough precision to report them faithfully)', signiBed his ifiteuiion of briiiging in a Bill, to enable the flodse to receive the depositions of witnesses on odili. Mr. CBEEVfiY said, thai for two days past he had heard reports of such a nature, as liiade him very much suspect the motion with whicli the House were threatened. He heard of some motion or proposition which was to be made, to attempt to induce 'them to reliiiciuish their'authority, so far-as to abandoii the >ri; uly bjeiniiik^" chfevou*.

He was ready to ask, who were the parlies to be lieneflted by the measure?   Nut the King-(He had surely a right to refer to what had taken place in the other House, when it was known to all the kingdom).-They had been told by the Prime Minister, that.the IJillwas not intended For his. Majesty's benefit-that the: King sought no adviiutage from it.   Whp then .was t.o reap th^ adyantBge ?   Even supposing that ihe Gentlemen ojipbsite., i-huuld ' be cursed   with success in the proceeding, what would he the result to the Illusiiions Pa;ties chiefly concerned ?   Why, one would be proved a worthless struinpet,.and .the_other-be could not well name what tn that assembVy : this, if .ihey succeeded.   But had liiey well considered, whatmiglit take place after? Could they ever hope to Cjirrytlwi:law. into effect ? Now as one part of;the Bill had iieen given up, in deference to the, ftfelinga-of ther'pubtic. what hindered'them frunij yielding up:iHb other in obedience to the same iQutive.'?   The; Bill would not be a BilLo.nly to degrade.the.Queeu, it^would degrade the King, and the Pnrliamtnt, and thp country, if pas^edjuio a law...

Any. thing Wished : for by the people ? No ; bijt a-measure which-, most .end ii>-disgrace and defeat. He s'rongly.objected to a mode of tnul in which the judges-were not only jorors but prosecuto.s. He inferred this from.their.own proceeding*. When the Attorney-General, appeared at the bari being asked at. whose instance he did so, his reply was that he came th^re at the command of their Lordshinsi Before this moiistrons tribunal it was impossible that justice could he rendered. Wliat then remained for them ( ure. In doing this, they were not culled on to retract in any degree, because they had alreaily declared (hut they would not proceed; tlie'y could not be disgraced bj.* liolding back, for they bad drcliired that it.would'be disgraceful to prticeed. Tlie Noble Lord opposite, aud his associates, might incur disgrace, but that whs not for the Hou�e to consider^ At any irate, for his own part, he would say that he had not suliicieHt respect for them to be willing to sufiVr, or that the House should suffer disgrace instead of ihem. The examinaiion of the^case for the prosecution had proved wholly unsatisfactory. The best waj' to close it would be by agreeing lo a motion which he offered by wa^ of amendment, fur an humble Address to be presented to his Majesty, hu'nbly praying him to prorogue the i'arliament. Sir R; Wilson said, ihathad it not been for the amendment just proposed, he was about tu submit amotion for the purpose of ridding the House of the threatened inquiry. The silence of the Noble Lord aud Honourable Gentlemen oppnsite was surprising.   They might flatter themselves that it was becoming ih^it dignity, but the country would not he equal^ satisfied with .it.   He was aware that there was uo hope of carrying the a'meiidmeiutbut if the Bjll, 4(>ni)d jits way |owo to .tl^t House he pledged'liiirisHf to throw every ohstacre, every^ means of opposition in its way which his situa^ tion in the  IJouae could supply, or the ingenuity  of man  could  suggest fur ihe purpose. He would do so not only because of his hatred to the abominable and detestable mode of proceed, jng, but because he h n the whole case was, Ihat it originated in a foul and hateful conspiracy.-fHear, hear, hear.J-He knew these were hard tenns (o apply lo any public measure.   But he would fur-uinh proof of the troth of his. acsertiun, by the evidence already given, from which it also appeared plain to him that the conspiracy did not nrigiiiale at Milan,  but   was' iirst agitated  ut Hanover. Ompteda was an  Hanoverian Baron.   This man who had violated the rights of hospitality, who had forged keys, picked loi-ks, and filched letters- who had abused- the kindoes" of his hostess, and afterwards refused (gentlemanly satisfactiun for the affront-this coward, felon,~aiid Irttitor, when he returned from his base mission, was restored to honours from which he h�d been suspended in consequence of his behaviour while the Country was possessed by aj enemy, aud arrears of pay, which  he had"* thus forfeited,  had  been mvide good lo him.   He, strongly, reprehended the conduct^ of tlie- Milan Commission, which had set up an advertising-office for stMndulous infnimation, a rendezvous fur efnuderoas and unjust-servanU and waitiug-maids.   He pointed out the pay~ which these people: had received; Sitcchini, for ii)stbncp', rect:ived in the service of the Princess of Wales 70 Napoleons a year.   He (Sir K.'Wilsou) ha'rf made inquiry respecting something which  hfr had heard respecting him,      a Mr. Geoffry,' from whuni hd had received for answer^ that Sacchini, -iinder the title of De'Milaiiiei had actually been paying'5/: a-week fur his boafd and lodging. What an income must this fellow, whb'serv.ed' for 70 Napoleons, 'and thbbght them excelleet wage.", be deriving from the publig money. Were thesi; honest proceedings? Let the Houie look al'the money received by the master of the polacre.   He� would get altogether 1,500/.' by the time he would return to Nitplils^ This: was at least equal to 5.O0O/. sterling in Eiigland. Any one iliat knew the country inust be aware of^ thai.   A Prince Cardinal oP Koine wiis nch in receiving 14,0Q0 dollar* per annum.'    This man would receive   12,000 dolliirs.   The King was. betrayed, and the Queen oppressed and  insult-ed.

He remiudrrd llie House of the necessity iif*. nut giving way lo popular clamour. The publie^ ought noi to have it bruited amongst thrin tlial the Parliament were likely to do ii-justice. He waa.' convinced, on the coDlrnry, that perfect justice Bould be done in the end. Mr. G. Bennett wais desirous to shew his finti and unshaken opposition to the impending measure. His opinion was not at all shnkeu, but on the contrary, confirmed by �hat he liad witnessed in another House. He had hern present day by day. He was convinced that to proceed would only be lo. involve the institutions of the country in fresh oilitim. . it Would be only to ussi-t in doing ihit which Mi* nisters liad been engaged-m for years, reducing the . constitution and authorities lo couirmpt andignu-'uiiny.
