After a few reinaiks from tbe Earl of DarNLET and Lord Erski.ve, tbe papers having been laid on the table, were oidered tu be printed. The Counsel weie Ihen called in, aii3 look their stations. Mr. Broui;h8in advanced to the bar, and resuimd bis address.- How came it 10 pass that, with no want of means in the preparation of this case, with tbe greatest skill and management applied tu all Ihe different parts in thai preparation, with the most ample resources of all sorts at their disposal to eoable them tu brin.; all .the faculties which were to be engaged into play, huw did i| happen that there was one defect in the arraugement loii.obvious to be overlooked? He alluded to the want of balance as to the way in which the various couulries included iu the proceedings were represented by the witnesses. How was it that the places of most importance, every way, were the least numerously represented ? The Italian Stales, from the highest to the lowest, whatever thcir^dr^gree of power or political cuusequeiice, had their sevcfal deputies.- They had only to cross Ihe'Alps and they would find that the whole of Ihe liefyetic League was represeuteil-.by a single nymph-the whole circle, of the German empire by one waiting-maid at an fun. Not one deputy appeared for Vienoa, and still less for the place of her Majesty's nativity, where, it iniiiht be presumcd,Bhe was best known. No, there was no one to appear for all the States of Germany except one chamber or cellar.inaiil, or assistant to the cellar-man, for indeed some doubts were entertained'as to lier real quality or station. With the exception, however,- of this witness' and one Swiss servant, all the others were brought from Italy. He begged pardon  there were two grand exceptions-but they were bis witnesses-they had not served the prosecution. He was proceeding to coinment on Ihe German female witness when lie was so kindly i iterrupt-ed by their Loidships yesterday. Here, as iu other cases, he would refer the witness to her own deposition in reasonini; against her testimony. Kiesse was her uwn biographer, and to take her own account of herself from her earliest years, it appeared that she was in the repiitubic, unsuspicious, and unexposed situation of chamber-maid at a German Ion. It would be found by an rximiiialion of her own statements, th:it she was about thirteen years of age when she fi'rst commenced her labours in that hiinourahle'Valiing. Where slie'liad been engngeil, in what sifualioniiiiinediately sifter this, was easy-^discOver from bei^ own accdubt; yet there was same little dilHcully, which w4s caused by the obstructions which she hud very nisely Ihrowu ru.tb'e way of the inquiry. Her answer iu a (|iiesttoft;piil, fur'th^ purpUse of aecertainiu?, wan, that she bad 'got .!aiio|her'placed . Being asked where, and lu whiise iierviee ? 'titie gave'fbe't^ime of her employer.' She was asked'Whdtsifuitidn'siie'betd;''or what -Was she-in 'Ihe f imily ? The'anifwer wasi'k semtif.

Grimm atida Raden wer*'�itr^ely actiij?'arfpiits;  Thtn iberCi^a^We Baron'ttt'^Ciiirlsrahe, whom Sresse bad described as the Baron with a long nante. This'man had scruplid not to throw away-all those feelings of huniiur and deciency which were becuming in c6mmon men, wh.ch were not Iu be dispensed with in Ihe morals of private life. He was aware that seme things would not disgrace a .Minister which would incur infamy in private-thai thtng,i would sometimts obtain for a Minister tbe applause of his employers which would render bim ignominious in private life-lhal honours and rewards might he heaped upon bim, if indeed such rewards fur actions which would iu..other men he disgraceful and. infamous, could be coupled with honour. At any rale these men had acted as if their impressions had been snrhas he had described-as if they undemuod well, and were willing zealously and faithfully to perforin the duties of true diplomatic agents, to whom, as he was bound by uniform practice to presume, " all things were good, all things were needful." Tbe last Baron whom he l:ad mentioned beard that the Queen was coming : he was occupying apartments which were well calculated for her accommudstjon-be artfully gave them up-he kindly changed his own for worse and inore incommodious chambers-he gave them up ciutiously and insidiuuiily: on the very day , that the Princess quitted them he relumed, and is found, in the language of Barbara Kresae, "running op and down," spying at the furniture, peeping into Ihe beds, and carrying on his invesligatiou in a way that made it appenr as if be ihonglit this zeal would be highly pleasing In his employers-whereas, he (Mr. Brougham) was convinced that they would feel no satisfaction at bis having gone upon so dirty an issue. But active as he was, and inquisitive as he was, he did not condescend to appear himself as a witness.- Here be would have been a material witness as to facts which Kresse alone was called to swear to, and his testimony would have been of still greater importance had there hern any real charge 10 prove, as he was in the apartments so Soon after Ihe departure of the Princess, that he must liave known the truth. Let them observe ihe character of the only remaining viiiiiess whose testimony was Worthy of a comment. Look at the account slie first gave of being brought over !o this country by force. It was true that she had made a bargain Io receive compensation for loss of time. Rut she had received no cumpensalinn ; she bad had no reward. It was kindly suggesteil to her by her Counsel, the words were pijt by liiitr.upuu her lips as it wefe,-li>*sylbat shif had expectarion of being patdfor her loss Of time; but she refused to take the words into her mnulh: she Aid not expect compensation ; she bad been brought by compul ion, thunscb to be sure there was a bargain, she said, fur payment of lost time. But what reason had she to expect a reward or compensation ? Let their Lordships observe with what reluctance it was wrnng from her that she bad been examined once before at Hanurer. She was asked how much she bad re-ceivc'il; she did not know. Her words were, it was very little, to little tliat she conid not remember. It was observed Io her, lhal being so little it was tbe easier to remember, but it turned out to be su great that it was impossible for her to forget. For one short trip lo Fraiikfort, which took her six days, she had received more money llian she had evrr taken as chambermaid in an inn for one year, including wages, perquisities, and aceidenis of every kind. Could any man after such statements pretend to say, that he believed Ibis woman when she as.serted that she exprrled no reward ? It was cuough lo make that part of her evidence false only to know that she must have expected a reward in future from her experience of the liberality of tbe past. The same equivocating manhl^r followed her through her whole story. The way in which she described herself to have left one particular scene which she professed lo have witnessed, her alleged message to the room of the Countess Oldi, her'allrged c^re in convincing herself tlmt the woman she saw was the Priucess, when, if her business bad been in the room of the Countess, she would have bad no escuse for gJing into Ihe other room so to convince herself, her assurance of the qnes. liiin lhal it was certainly the Priiicrss whom she saw, when there were other women in the house, though Barbara Kresse was the only one ihouglil worthy tu-be brought here, all these proved that she was not satisfied with herself until she was convinced that she had fulfilled the duties of a witness faithful to Ihe interests of her employers. He had mentioned to their Lordships, that tu support tbe Carlsruhe scene, Grimm had not appeared here, but there were many others of the Queen's suite who might have been called, and whose absence argued strongly against the truth of Ihe story. Now again he would cross Ihe Alps, and having dismissed the principal performers, the rest were mere makeweights, thrown in to add colour and consistency to the scene, but to all of Ihein the same general observations would apply which he had submitted to their Lordships yesterday. Nothing could strike any one moie forcibly than the general character and nature of Ihe witnesses. They were generally of the lowest appearance and employments, someof 4heui even of degrading employmeuts. Aud after all tbe pains which had been taken to give them even Ihe appearance of respirtabiliiy, ihe total failure of those endeavours must have struck every one. He would remind their Lordships of the sailors' evidence, none of whom, if they were to bebellevid, had ever made any communication of what they bad seen ; their allowing things of such extraordinary nature to pass before them, without speaking of them, almost precluded the necessity �,f a cross-rxamioa-tion. One is asked did he ever speak of what be had seen ? Yes, once at Milan, and never before; so of all the rest, Rastalii, who stvore to that abomination which, according to him, look place in Ihe open face of day, without cover-log or shelter, when be was only four paces distani, aud when by a mere turn of his head he must have seen it.-^ Like all the rest this never is mentioned lo anyone-the same process takes place-:-liis lips is heriieiically sealed till tbe Milau Commission opens them. Did the buatmau in all the interval of time, from what he s,iw to the piiiod of dlfclosure, lend the life of a solitary recluse?-did he hold no converse with his fellow-men ? Had he no-wife, n6 friend, no fellow-servant, or fellow-passenger on the Lake, to whom, in-gossip, be would have disclosed it? To a passenger it was most probable he would communicatefur he cftuld prove that the boatmen there, to entertain their passengers, who gave them money for it, bad got into a way tit tell ing them stories which had no fuuudaliun; but to passen- :raordiiiary events are tohl. sights to seal n,p the lips ? 'Loidsh ps whose lips wtrc' gers not one syllable of these cx Was it the effect of seeing su6h Was there one even among their schooled to euaci Ihe runnier even when no Court was present,-who would not'have repeated it tu some;-one or the �other?

He would dismiss ilm rest of the witnesses without observation : he had taktii them by sample, and with that be was satisfird of the quality of the remainder of the cargo, and iliuse m glit why. wuuld, delve into Ibe filthy bulk. . He il,sinis8rtl thmi wiili a single remaih. It appeared that ihis was hke all oiher conspiracies-there was little of novelty-^ little to vary iIik oft-tuld tale-the same coutiivance and devices suH apiK'ar-eil, aud whether fac/iido was or was not a lenitiinnle rrea-lion of Sliakspeare, he was al least a twin-brotl.er o,' those wituesses who bad appeared on this occasion.   H^ says- --" I have belied a lady. The Priucess of this counliy. Being thus quencb'd Of hope, not louring, mine Italian brain, 'Gan iu your duller Britain operate Most vilely; for my vantage t.\cellent; Tukens thus, and thus; aveiring notes Of chamber hangings, pictures, and ber bracelet. To be brief, my practice so prevailed, That 1 returutd wilh proof enough To make the noble Leonalus mad." Tbe evidence was the same, from the same country, and by similar mai ks* and tokens (a strange coiuciilence} the i>�o cases wvre sought to be substantiated. Having disposed generally of the characters of llie witnesses, and though in his observations on tbein he bad in some measure aniicipated what he should now, in the discharge of his duly, bud ti necessary to solicit tlitir Lordshipi'attention tu the beads of the charges-lo the counts of thai sliaiige in-diclmenl, if he might so call it, which bad been preferred. The fir^t of Ihose counts was evidently the Ne. apulitan scene. It was there the alleged connexion was first completed) it was there was coasuininaied, for thf fiisl lime, without any restraint, what appeared tu have � comoi�nced.o">ly 10 days or a forluiglit before. The Princess of Wales h,iviug theniofjrc been of unimpeachable character, and unimpeachable life, aud proved to liavo been so by much stronger evidence than if she had oever beeii suspected-proved so, if there was any justice in the country, and any benefit in aequiHIal ; ber character was the more firmlyeslablisbed after two sohmu inquiries, aud ac-quitled after two searching examinations; so well eslablished, that when one set of Ministers had proved hrr char of ihe serious charges brought against her, but recommended ber lo be censured for imputed levities, the suecessois of those Alioisters, not satisfied with denying the levities, and expunging ibem from Ihe charge, recommended her Sovereign, Uncle, and Falher, to receive ber as the purest Princess should be received, who ever adoi ned Ihe walks of hiugly life. That character, Cjining out of Iri.il so puie and untoucheil, for such was the opinion held by ihose wIk. are suspected of favouring the present cbaigi*, how d.d they say she had demianid herself? Why, on her arrivaf in Italy, she hires a servant and moves on towards Napiis. la the course of some days, certainly less then a moiith, bui, be it as it might, during that short interval, the degradation of her Royal Highness is completed-from ihe niistrcsc* of the servant she becomes the mistress of the in. iiial lover, and plunges ai once into niter and shameless perdition. The whole case fell al once lo the ground, if �as not believed that on the second uiglit after her arrival at Naplta the couiiixion began; because iHajoccbi had sivoni to facts, �hiih, if true, the connexion must thru have bten begun and cumph-lvd. It might be suirpused :hat a pt rsoii carrying 011 a vicious iulercuuise, might by li.,hil become careless of d. tiction; but hire, on Ihe eoulra.y, tbe first act was Ihe most incautious of any, as it appeatt-u tier Mji-jehty chose not to go by a way where she uiiglii be unseen, but iu puf.reuce winl by a way where it was highly pruba-ble she inu,.l be observed. How was the room prepared fi,r gratifying a love so ardent ? What piepaiaiious were inadi; fur the indulgence of so dominaiil a passioti? One small iron bedstead, which could with difTieutty contain a sin^'le person, was all that was prepared io that house, fvery room of iihicli contained a cuuirurlable bed. Iu "that room there w.is a large bed, hut that was left unlouch-ed; indeed no sheets were on it: and tli,il tittle iroii bedstead, made for travelling, was the only one which �ai used. He thought it was not proved that llie .;rcat bed had been used. The witness said, " It Was nut much tumbled ;" though she afterwards mendeil that, and after a lapse of three-ilays, in answer to a question i,f iiia Leariud Friend, .Mr< Williams, who reminded her of what her formr e evidence liad been, she said, " I said so then, but 1 have since rerolltcled something;" and though she ruuM not say that two prrsous had slept therein, she said, " the bed 'ooked as if two persons had pressed it down in ihe middir, aud last of all she recollected stains. What it was that had thus refreshed her recollection, no one could tell. She had not been examined about it. She was nut Ihcu iu the hands of the Solicilor.General, aud bis Learned IMeudj Mr. Wilhams, she could not regard with a favuurabie e\e. Nolliiug bad passed since the leading cxamiiiaiiou of thp SoliCiiui-General, which could Drought, if she llitn spoke true, make ber remember now what at that time she bad forgotten. Was it likely, he would ask, that she shouM have forgotten -what she came there expressly to pnn. ' She bad voluuleeied the answer-that the- Quei;i iel.r i Highness remaintd to the end of the performance. She said that Billy Austin was ordered into another room ; but be would prove lhal he'had ceased lo sleep in the sarii,? room wilh ber Royal Highness, long before the time when the courier was hired. The witness said, iiul.'cd, he 5le;'C in aaadjoiuing room, the door of which Has uulocki-d, and he might still therefore continue to go in and out as if ic were his own. I'ht: wilaess wbo bad volunteered Ihe infor-mili.iu, Ihat ber Royal Highness came home early from tbe Opera, and dUplayedan agitated mind as if ou her bridal night (for that was the meaning intended to be convened), could yet not at first rrcullect ibe circumslaaces oftbe larger bed. Hti put it lo any, reasonable man, wbthcer, if she had spoken truly, she wuuKI nut Inure told that first which she had slaleri last ? He asked, if ihe stains that were then spoken of would not in this view of Ihe circumslauce, turn out tu he no more than any otiier ordioar-y signs, or marks, or stains, whicii-no man in his'seus'es would.regaid inore than the wind that passed by ? Ai Nn(i1es'a similaivscriie was, spoken to by the same witness-she could not say when, or whether it ita.-i near the end of the same year, but some time-or other duiii.g
