They might speak us they would ofihe people in their snug places of combination,-but from the people alone could there einnjiate'any lawful authority -for them and yieir beiieflt was power held, and to them must iherr rulers, answer for^any abuses of that power. They (the .Meeting) had nil heard of the Bccus.)Uon against the Queen. He did not wish to look on hl.-i left (towards the female.') while he uttered it. But llnngs most be culleil by their right names sometimes. The ace of spades was not the ace of diamonds. Tlie word which he WdS about to utter was pol�unous and loaihsome enough-he could not help if. The Queen was uccuertion. Where did the conspiracy originate ? For 25 years had their illustrious Queen been hunted by persecotioh; On the Same grqiiitds was she again accused with augmented powel-dmottg her persectttor.-i-Iwtih ro^-al power, which they had never had before. Charges were got up and gathered from, God knew where, but there they were in komethiiig like a vile accuinulation-a dirty cloud which they would speedily be eijabled to dissipate.-^app/aus�5.y-In a former conspiracy, sworn to by vei^y eminent perjurers, a child was brought forth., however, was laid at rest by the putting of one simple question- " Who is the father of \v V'-flaughter.J- .There was a child without a father !-/'ifajig'/i/ei'._/ A Noble Lord had said in the House of Commons, that if this should prove to be a conspiracy it was an unparalleled and unexampled conspiracy, and that he would most gladly assist in searching to the bottom of it. What was the plain answer to all this ? Why, that the conspiracy was neither unparalleled nor unexampled-why, because there was just such another in 1800. The conspiracy now, as it had- been^ then, would be wholly disproved. He did not intend to go into particulars, but from his knowledge he felt sure tfiat the conspirators would he delected, niid that right soon. But then, the Noble Loi'd whose words he had quoted would, in that case, be the last man he would be willing IQ apply to for nasistaiice. If he himself were not a consp'trator, he knew not where to look for one. But look they must, and look they would, and if the people approved and commanded them to go on, they (he meant the House of Commons) would find out the accomplices. When the Queen's enemies were referred to the old conspiracy they did not like to bear of it, they begged it might not be mentioned ; they said it was gone by, and was not fit to be revived. But there were 25 years of ill treatment, whitjh mast be accounted for. How had they acted in the new conspiracy ? Had they not selected for their purpose the dark intervals of long voyages and foreign travels? The Queeiihad been living, at home, in perfect respectability-surely there ought to have been the worst, in point of crime, were their case a good one. But let this be said to them, and they reply, " Oh ! don't mention the last three years; they make no part of our case." They made a part of the case for the public, however, and would not be lost sight of. Now, a� to the Milan Commissioners, whowerethey -("John Leach wasone."J-John Leach was one, Cooke was one, P.owell was another, and Colonel Brown another. What was the Commission for ? Whyi "said the hirers, to inquire into various unhappy rumours and reports and infamies which wel^ perpetually repeated, respecting the condiibt of the Qiieen. How could they refuse u.t leat^t to eiXamine them? "Very.good doctrine this uniij the answer canae. Here it was. The Commission had, instead of going to collect evidence, been occupied in creating it. They had the proof of this in. the list of evidence. One with another the, jvit'iiesses had giyeii them to understand, that wha'teveT fhey hsd seen or were engaged to describe they had never mentioned it to any one until they mete reminded of it at Milan. The Commission ha.d, "giyeir birth to the evidence, and not the evidence .to tiie Commission. R{IaJoccht had been traced (where did they suppose into-Carlton-hoose.

This she tendered to her landlord, in order to save herself from being turned, out of doors hs a vagabond. The landlord wai-a hnniane man, fell for her dis-d'Css, thought unloriUiiate, though perhaps deserving woman,' and accepted the moiny in part payment. The pertion before-nienlioned was preseirt at this time. In the same juncture Mr. Puwr-U was seen by him to enter the house. Mr. Powill was with Dumont some little lime. He was no sooner gone than she rang her b-ll, and with an air of mosc perfect insolence tendered the landlord one of three IO/. notes, which she was flourishing, telling him, " You see I'm not in want of mo-iey." This had oc-. Curred just before his arrival that very mornini;} il had not yet got wind ; they would doubtless mike a proper use of It, He next caiae to Sacchi. Uu-uiout bad been discharged for telling lies and in-lrj_guing with Sacchi. Majocchi bad been discharged for his ill conduct ; for il appeared that tne household of her RoyHl Highnesjs was always in a turmoil about which of ihem should have the ascendancy until .the arrival of Bergami, who, as it appeared, acted hke a faithful ^teward, turned out the worst, and reduced the lithers to perfect order and obedience. Sacclii was the next. This courier, with as many names as the week had days, had given evidence of a fact too loaihsome to mention'. But in describing the peep whti-'h the rascal said he had made into the Cirriiajje he proved, ' that as his eyes must have been uplified when he was thus peeping, it was uiierly impossible for him to .have seen any. thing below, niuch less the filthy thing which he had described. Now this fellow, according to a letter which had bten received from liis landlord, Mr. Geoffry, had been paying &L a-week for his board unii lodging. Wheie could this vagabond courier have ' procured money enough to live like an Eni�-lish Gentleman �f 700/. or 800/. a-year ? In short, the witnesses were all alike-" the devil a barrel," as the Irishman said, "^the better iier-ring." He then commented on the obvious feeble-nes'a of the case for the prosecuiion, notwithstanding the jirofessions of Ministers, and notwithstanding the Stale of Hanover, the Austrian, and all the Italian States had been engaged in getting up the conspiracy. With uli the powers of Europe to aid them, what a wreiclied case did it ainouni to.' That Coloiubier, that Countess, that most infamous of street-strumpets, whose mind was tve;i more poisonous than her body, said to the party he had before mentioned, that she conid have what money she pleased by applying to Lord Stewart, and undertaking to give evidence against the Piiu-cess. To which the person liad replied, that >lie had better not meddle with the subjfCt-that she had, when she first came over to this country, described the Princess as pure, viriuon.o, generous, and in all ways excellent. On the other hand he appealed to her to consider what slie would be doing if she undertook to coniradict nil llii.s for the sake of a little money. She perhaps thought it belter to be doing that than nothing, ~ It was a fine maxim of the constitution (which God protect !) that the King could do no wrong, h appeared from the state of the country that Ins Ministers could never do right. He went over the proceedings which took place in Parliament between the arrival of the Queen and the introduction of the Bill. He lamented the degradalioii.juf the church by its head having been engaged as an u^ent lo prepare the way for bringing in tliat Bill. He lamented that not one of the Bishops had lakeu a step to check the loathsome progress of the Bill, or bad ever voted on it but with Ministers. Here wus a charge without an accuser, as in 18CG there had been a child without a father. He protested agi.iutt a tribunal of politicians. The Judges of the land, although -endowal with learning' and the deepest knowledge of the laws, were so placed that they could not do wrong.- The laws took away l heir discretion. If they did not oLat.Tve .and enforce both the law and the evidence they were liable to impeachment. But who was lo impeach the Loidi if they did wrong ? A tribunal of political Judge.s was the woi'^t of all tribunal!'. Before l^e closed lie reminded them that one Barbara Kranlz had been adduced as. a witness. This ubomiiiabla wretch had been whipped through Carlsrnhe, fi>r miiming or -killing her own bastard child. The waiter at Trieste Was also a fellow of very scand'aloos lif'f, who had got: money frequently by giving similar evidence. In-short, as he had said in Ins place in the House of Commons, the case was a foul and mfailiouj conspiracy, and Ministers were atlhe bulloui of ii. After pa)ing further tributes of praise on tiie integrity which had been evinced by the press iu ibis great question,, and exhorting them to cherish that integrity,.by which their o�n liberties, nu les� than ~the Queen's honour, had been fireserved, he concluded by moving the first Kesoluiion :- 1.
