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 Princess on her arrival at'Triesle? The Gdvrrniir and Virc-Govrrnur; lit leajt tho Jailer ciime lo pay his respects nfier her Royal Highnvss's arrival. Do yon remeniher; the name 'if that noMemm ?   I do not. In what way did the Princess pats that evening? Her Royal Highness went lo the Opera. When did Ihe Hrinrets leave Trieste ? On the following day, about five or six o'clock in the evening. Do you recollect th^i diatinrtly ? I p.-s,lively recollect it. Have you any particular reason for your distinct recollection of I hat fuel ?   I have. What is ii ?   I wrote a letter dated Venice the 18lh Apr^l. Hove yon I hat letter >   Yes. It was written to a Lady whom you hav� since ioarri�f^ Yes. Wns it sent from Venice ? Not only was it sent fr�B� Venice, but through the Post Office there. Has it Ihe Venire post maik on il '   It hat. Is there any pas.sagc in that letter, on looking at wbtcti you ran say you arrived at Venice on thc.l7tli of Aprilf Yes, the letter is dated on Ibe 18tb, and lays " we arriwi at Venice last night." Can yon by looking at that letter state what time yp� Arrived at Trieste ?   \Vp arrived at Trieste ou the I5tb April. What is Ihe lengthiof the journey from Trieste lo Venice� A goi�d tweitly-fuur liours junrney. Did any thing occiir to oeciipy yon for obout that time � On Ihe night of our leaving Trieste, we stoppnl a fi w hours at a small village, about something which had happened to one uf the carriages. Do you renirmbrr the name of that rillage? I do Oct recollect the name.    < Was it Monte Falcone?   I cannot say, but it wasjust' after defceudiiig the Ijigh hills about Trieste. Do you remember-ai person of I lie'name of Baron d'Omp. teda ?   1 do. Was he in the habit of visiting at her Royal Highness'* house?   Constantly,  \ Do you recollect his visiling her at Genoa ?" I do. Did he dine with her Royal Highness there, or merelv called?   He dined. At that time was Theodore Majochi in Ibe service of fc�r Royal Righniss!   He wa.s. Was it bis duly to wait at dinner at that time? It w��; he was then a footman. Did you see Baron Ompleda again, at Milan or any where?   Yes; at Milan, and Como also. Ou those occasions, wai he visiling ber Royal Higbnesr? Yes. Did be dine with her Royal Highness at either of ihe times you have last mentioned ?   Yes. Du yon remember his coming to the Villa Villnni ?   I do. How long did he slay there at any lime? He som uhject of Baron d'Ompleda ? I have never spoken to Theodore Majucchi about him, except at Rome, topie lime after the Baron d'Ompti-da had been at Como. In the course of that conversation, did you mention the name of Bai-on d'Oihpteda ?   I did. From what you hive seen in the course of the different voyages and journies which you made wilh the Queen, do you know whether it is emtoniary or not, to be shown into root;i� of entertainment where "beds were standing ? Very frequently. Is it a thing al all uncommon tu be shown into rooms of lhat descripliim ?   Nut at all. Do you rcco'l ct her Royal Highness giving you-afly directions aa to the Baron'd'Omplcila ?   I Jo, Or making any representation to you on the subj.ect of Baron d'Ompleda ?   Yes*, What were the directions which her Royal Highness gave yon ? The Attorney-General nbjerled to this question, and tfce witness was ordered lo withdraw. The Altorney-Geiieral fell it incumbent on him to object to this question, because he apprejifodtd that any dire^ilon that her Royal Highnews might have given lo this w'llnrss on the suliject of the Barou d'Omptedn, conld not bt ew-dence in this cause. 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. Suppose, fur instance, it led 16 ihepiovifg lhat Baron d'Ompleda had been reqncstn), by Ihe direciiob of her Royal Highness never to enter her lumse again. The Lord Chancellor siid, that ihe proper way appeared to him tu be this-first lo-ask the witness Hhether hc^lid any thing, aud iheu to a�k him why he ilid il. Lieutenant Huwnani being agaiu called in,: his examiDa-lion was resumed by Mr. Tindall. In consequence of any directions of her Royil Ilighne'S to you, did you do any thing, or take any step with rescecttJ Barou d'Ompleda ? 1 did, in conicqucute of hi r reprt-sco-taliiiH. What did you do ?   1 called him out. Dill yon at any other time Jo any thing at Rome, rcsprcl-ing the Baion d'Ompleda ?   1 did. What was that ? In conseqnence of a direction I rccfivrd from her Royal Highness, Cardinal Cons^lvi having made * representation to her �   - The Lord Chancellor-Tell us what you did, and wait till you are afterwards asked what were jour din ciioim ? I tolJ the servaots of the house that they were not to molest ur take ouy notice of Baron Ompleda, if they met him. Was Theodore Majocchi one of those ser.vauls ? I am moit positive lhat he wan. [The answer having appeared lo some to be " almost positive," the question was repealed, the same answer given, and then the question and answer read by tbe shuithaoJ writer.] Do yon recollect on any occasion ber Royal Highness visiling any of her servants when they weie ill and iu bid Fri quently.
