Ii, The Lord Chancellor entered the Honie a few minutes before ten o'clock', and prayers were read. The names were then called oVer. The Earl of Lauderdale moved for some accounts connected with the revenue. His Lordship made some remarks as to the necessity of opening the windows. The Lord Chancellor said that be bad made repeated orders to the ofBcers on that important subject.-fA lauqh.)^ Six or seven limes in Ihe course of yesterday bad he sent up the officer into the gallery to open the windows, and as often had somebody or other, he did not know wbo, shut them aeain. He would, if their Lordships thought fit, station an ufBcer in the galleries to keep the windows open. The Counsel were then called, and the examination of Lieut. Hownam reiiumrd by Mr. Tyndall. I was asking you yesterday what communicatiou there was on board the vessel between the tent ,aud the cabin below; was tbe communication which you'lbeo descri^rd open by uighl as well as by day? The ladder stood time always. Have you ever had any opportun ty of knowing by going up on deck that way duriug the uiglit, if Ihe iiommunication was open or uol ? i have. Will you state on what occasion that was ?-| It happened one-evening, when' nor*-knowing t^tat ber^ii|al Highiieaa had retired Id'rest, I went op the ladder to go on deck and 1 found the lent closed. Was the light out ? I dob'l'recollccl pfbcisejy ; I believe it was. Was it a single or a double lent ? It was the awniog of the ship. Dues that imply that it was single? [We understood the answer to be, that there was another piece which divided the tent; but that the witness did not recollect if that piece was put up or not.] Was there one or two tents, one exterior to the other? There was one only. Had you any means of knowing in what manner the tent could be opened or closed by any one on board the vessel ? I imagiiie it conid be opened by any one on the outside. Describe more particularly, the nature of the opening? It was, 1 believe, Ihe same as that by which all tents are opened or closed-the two sides of the canvass were brought together without being sown. How near was the tent to the steersman ? Tbe hinder part of the tent came close after the mizeumaat. Stale ns nearly as you can remember at what distance the hitid�r part of the tent was from the steersman ? Four, five, or six feet. Was any part of the crew up during the night ? One half of the crew kept watch during the' night. Was there a passage by the side of the tenl from the fore to the after part of the ship ? The tent occupied the whole of one side of the ship-on the other there was a clear pas. sage. Did the duly of the crew in the management of the ship require them on any occasions to pass from one end of the ship to the uihrr? Constantly. You have staled that beneath the tcttt there was a sofa and a travciling bed ? Yes. Dii yuu know on which her Royal Highness reposed during thK night? On the sofa, 1 think. Do you know who reposed during the ni^ht on the travelling bril ? I cannot; 1 never was in the tent after night. Do yon know if her Royal Ht^hness reposed alone under the tent during the night? 1 have heard that others reposed there as well as Iter Royal Highness. (AmUrmiir arose upon tliin answer. Mr. Tyndall said lliat her Majesty's Counsel had no objection whatever to the an8wer,'l)Ut it was no evidence. The answer was withdrawn accordingly from tbe eTidence.) Without speaking of what you heard, do yon know that any one slept uniler the tent besides her Royal Highness? I do not know; I have never seen any btie. Do yiiu recollect during the juurneyfroiii SI. Jean D'Acre to Jerusalem, whether, when her Royal Highness was sleep, ing under the tent, she was dressed or undressed? 1 have not seen her Royal Hlgbness undressed. Have you ever seen niider the tent one way or the-other? I have not seen hir Royal Highness when reposing, conse. quently I could not have seen her undressed. Have you ever happened to go into the tent while her Royal Highness was under it? We always dined until our departure under the tenl. Are yuu to he understood then to say, that yon don't know whether the Princess was dressed or undressed when reposing in the tent? I don't believe her Royal Highness was ever undressfd during tbat time. Will you stale the grounds which you have for that opinion ? Because I uever saw any bed clothes in the tent. Now, as to the tent on board the ship, was. her Royal Highiii-sS, to the best of your knowledge, dressed or undress, ed when reposing under that lent? 1 never saw any bed clothes on the sofa. Do you recollect on any occasion during the night an accident uf the sea breaking into the tent? I d it utas'made at Angilsia by my direction. I wisli to know Os^nearly ns^ possible {he size Of Ihe bath ; was it such as that it conld be taken into her Royal High-taeg�'� bed-room ? Ivion'l Ihinic that possible. WhileHhey were-on hoard, 4id you see her Royal Highness silling on a gun witb'Oergami? i never saw tbem sit. ling On a gun. - . Did you tfvrrsee them sitting on a benthnn deck, bis arm round her, or her arm round him, like two lovers?"' Never. Did you eversee (liem'ikiss each other? Never. Did yon ;evcr.Bee�ny impropriety or indecency of behaviour between Ihem one^owards-lhe other-? Never. Did yonr dnfiea- frvfjuently call you otj deck ? They ditl; bnt tbe navigation- of-ibeabip was rbieSy in ibe bands of Flynii. , - .- �. -� .^Bot yob yoorself was frriluenlly ou deck� Yea. ;-.!co .yoo^ reniember-^ergiiWi"dretsing himself upon any .-OcraaionoD board .with pillow*? -'i do. ; ..iiBe to good .to 'Stale^be ttceasiott of that circnmilauce ? It wa� occasioned by tbe Consul �t:;laira, ivl��ame twlioard with a gahl-headrd cane and embroidered velvel.robe. Was he a pompous figure? He was. Do yon remember a man named Mahomet being taken on board on tbe return voyage? I do. Do.yoo remember' a- dance performed ou board by Mahomet ? I do. Do- you remember the occasion on which that dance was first performed? There was a sort of qnarrel between Ma homet and the Doctor; The Doctor wanted him, when he first came on board, to take some physic, which be would not, and it was to laugh at the Doctor ibat afterwards be used lo dance it. Then the refosaj of Mahomet to take the physic was the original of the quarrel ? The Doctor abusing him, fur not taking physic, was tbe first cause of the quarrel. K When the Doctor appeared on deck, was-that dance called for? Ii was, and he performed it, calling out, " Uena, Dema.'" Was there any thing improper or indecent in that dance? Not in the least; uo more than iu the Spanish -jolero or the dance. Did you see Mahomet performing the same dance on shore ? Frequently. Was it the same which be used to perform on board ? Precisely. Before you arrived at Capo Rani, did any one land at Terracina ? They did. VVliat persons landed at Terracina? Bergami, Camera, and I think Theodore Majocchi. Were the vessel boiind to perform quarantine ? We were not iu port ; we were then at sea. Would it have been necessary for you to perform quaraa-tine at landing? We should in all probability have bad to perform qnariintine. What was the reason of those persons being landetl at Terracina ? It was to obtain refreshments for Iter Royal Highness, who was extremely fatigued with being on board so long-In point of fact, was the Princess much fatigued at that time? Very much.

By kissing her hand resperlfully. Did eacbof those persona kisabsr Royal Bigboeaa'aband"? I Ibink they did, Q. I put it to you Lieut. Hownam, did Bergami, on that occasion, kiss her Royal Highness ?

If any thing lhat had been said by bcr ^ Royal Highness lo Sir. Hownam, or to any other person"', i>u matters foreign lo the auhjecl of this inquiry, were to be admitted as evidence, he did not know �here they would slop. Her condnct was the subject of inquiry, ami n'uy part of that conduct, or any thing immediately cuuiierlnj with if, was evidence ; but her conversations, or any declarsliou'wi* not so,anri the subject of the question now proposed amounting only lo a declaration, made by her Kuyal Highness, wc� uol, he humbly s-uhmitted, admissible evidence in llie case- .Mr. Tindall said that if any conduct of her Ruyal Highness or of this witness resulted from such declaration, he hunibly thought that it iwas evidence lo he aubniitied lo their Lordships.
