Thu room at length b�raaie so full, that the Mdes and ends uppeared-as if the company were piled upon one unollier. The appearance of the us�eriibly was mo*l (gratifying, from the general (^i^play of resper-tabelily, and the ^reat numbers of hHniisoir.e, vi^ell- ^ diessed feinHles ivho were in uitendance. After one o'clock the company be^an to shew Some impaiience at the dehiy wliicli took place. Mr. I'eakson got upon ihetaWe, and said, that as the room was Very full, and the hour for taking ihe chair was past, and as besides there were several distinguished personages present, who were equal to managing the business of Ihe Meetijig, perhaps it would lie desirable to send n deputHtion, into tlie Cotnniittee-room, to inform the Gentle-ajjen there, Jhat the company would be glad of tli)?ir presence. He projiosed a liesolution to that effect, and that Mr. Bowie should be njipoinled to miike known to the Committee the wishes of the asi-embly. ' This Uesoliition being cariied, and the message delivered, in a few mii.utes Mr. Hobhouse was ushered into the room by the Coniinittee, and was followed by Mr, Hume, Mr. P. Moore, Alderman Wood, and some other Gentlemeu. Uii the molion of Mr, 1'ickman, Mr. HoBHODSE was voted into the Chair. It was almost unnecessary, he said, to give thetn any thing like a preliminiiry out line, or offer any observations oil the subject which hud brought toge-tlier such great and lespectabte numbers. It was unfortunately too well known What that cause was which had assembled the people together tu so many places throughout the kingdom to express ihtiropi-nions of it, that those opinious were uotv almost utia-itiiiioai�ly pronounced, Il might be necessary to observe, that Ihts Meeting differed from nil others which had yet been held wilh respect to the object of il. Other meetings l�ad been held previous to the time in which the accusations had been brought, or while the proceedings were pending against her Majesty, Hut now they were met, after the enemies of the Queen and the kingdom Jercmiab Dyson, Esq>'10 IQ JobaiHall,; Esq: : 20r 0 JV)n. Cobje of true piety-what could they do in regard 10 the Queen, which would not be both honourable and just? iie was about to read to t-')em part of a^islory of a Piiiice wlio, until of lale, had been considered as one of thfe most besotted and weak that ever sat upon the Btiiish throne.- He alluded to Anthony Weldon's History of JamesJ. who in commenting upon a transaction of that reign, ahimst as dirty and disgusting us that the meeting were engaged in discussing, uSed some Very remarkable words, Tlie writer, (il talking uf the divorce of Somerset from the Countijss of E'St'x, said, " But needs must when the devil drives; yet knew he not how haiidsomely to effect this, witlioiit getting the King over to his viewii. Nor was Ihi.s liurd to do ; for tlie King'i eyes began to waiidei lifter a new fuvonrite, beinjr satiated liiitli the old. Wherefore, my Lords; the Bishops; must be rendered instriiments therein (as I know not what had action they would not quietly look 011), and tlie Bisliop of Winchester, being a grejt scliolur and a very learned civilian, must be mude tlie -chief actor iu the scheme, for which his son wai afterwards knighted."-Now he wished to know what was to hinder them from siding iti the same way again, Tliere were 24 Bi3ho(>�*^oii the beiit;h) a great number out of 300 Members, 'which cotii-posed ihe House of Peers.

His expression was, thit la whatever way Peers might tliiiili proper to vote, he would not be hurt by it. N.ow this was telling a great deal too muth. It assumed thut the Peers do not generally vote from conscience, and as they believe it lo be lor the good of the coyiiiry, but only as it may please Lord Liverpool. On this occasion they were to be allowed to vote conscientiously, and lie niust suy that be d'd not think Lord Liverpool would be iu any danger of losing their voi .
