Thdrsoay, Oct. 12. Tba Lord Chancellor entered the House at six minutea before to o'clock. . Prayers were r�ad and the names were called over. The Counsi I were called in. :;,'A few ohservalions were made by the ferl of. Blpsinton, Earl Grey, the Rirl of Lauderdale, aud Lord Erskiiie, as to the: diffically ofhearing the questions and answers, which endeil bylbe- Lord Chancellor renewing bis directions to Mr. Gurney, the dhorl-baod writer, to repeat every quesliuu and answer aloud before the sncceeding question should Ite put. , Lieut. Hownam was put to the bar aod examined by Ihe Peers. By Lord VValsingliam-Does tbe witness know wfaen her Royal Hi'hness look the bath oa board tbe pulacre in n.hat room or cabin it was? I never saw her Royal Higtii. neas take the bath, consrquently I cannot tell. By the Eurl ofCarnarvou-Voa have stated that yon were once i|t Trieste-r-were yira ever, after joining her Royxd Higboess in Italy, atrTrieate? Never. By tord-B^ojtkton-JVere yon in theierriceof bcr. Royal HighiOess-:hefore Bi>r�arai? I was not. Do you know the cause why Bergami was elected to sleep under the teat with ber Royal Highness iu preference lu yourself or Lieutenant Flynn? I do nol. Is it rnstomary for a ^sentinel to sleep -on watch? Certainly it is not customary for a sentinel lo sleep on bis post. What skip were you on board of ? Mauy ships. Name some of them, and the Caplaios? 1 served on hoard the Africaine, Captain Manly; the Lively, Captain Hammond; the Centaur, Sir S Hood; Ihe BurHeur, Captain M'Leod; the I.avinia, Lord Willisni Stewart; Ihe Resistance, Caplaiiie Adams, Ravriiburgh, and Pellew ; the Uodauuleil, Captain Usher, How many years have you been a Lieutenant ? Sinre Ihe year 1803. Ry Ihe Eail of Darnley-I nnderstond you (o say that tberd w.-i� no mystery or concealmeot as to Ber:;ami sleeping niiiler Ihe lent with ber Royal Highness on boaid Ihe pol^cre ; I wish lo know if ou any other occasions when Bergami has sh pi near her Royal Highness ihere was any mystery or coo^ realmeut ? None whatever. . What was your opinion of Bergami as a -.ervant of her Royal Hifhnces? I .must here confess that he was excessively attentive and most ready iu his duly. Was he, from your knowledge of him, a iiersen likely to be seUcted, from his diity.and allachmeul, lo guard the person of her Royal Highness when necessary ? I should think from any thing I have seen of him, and from the conduct of Marquis - (the Cjiamherlaiu uf the Grand Duke of Badeii) towards him, that there was sufficient to authorise his appointment to that duty. Was there uo suspicion excited in your own mind ia consequence of that circitmslaitce ? None. . You have Ven asked about Mrs. Howiiam; have you any objerlioii to stale her age.-(Some dtsapprobatioo was expressed. Tbe Noble Earl oITered lo withdraw the question, but Iho witness readily audwered)-About thirty. Are you and Mrs. Howoam living logelher happily as map and wife ought to do ?- [Another murmur of disapproval arose ralher louder than the first. The Noble Earl agaiu offered" to withdraw Ihe question if it were irirgular, and the witness found it inconvenient tu reply.] The Lord Chancellor said, that he could not conceive how SHch a question could be rtlcvant to the case before the House. Tlie 'Earl df Darnley then asked-You are well acquainted with Lieut. Flynn ? Y r�f4�ii;r /o ;/ou'such apprpbatioh, requivr,'' &c,. Uird Grosvenor acquiesced in tb^'Etrl of Lapderdale'a addiljpn^to l|(t! question, and i* w^asso..putrr?.,.

Near her in consequence of so�;h.apj>rehenfi9qs ? Yea. By Lord Comberinere-You have said that from ibf tuW-ine of It);: ship, as well as for the. protettion of her Royal Hiebnea?, It wan Dpeessary to have suine prrfon near her ; I wish lo.knov leftclhrr .I^euten^n.l Flypn or yooiscif wou^d not have answered ihat pu'r|io8e bellfr thn^ a |((nds|nap ?

I i;p|^puse it could. . . By th^.Marqiiisof Downs|iire-Vciufaave slalfH tHal you have iiaJia q-.^arre]l with the Baroo Opipteda-^fro^ wh<il djd that arise?r^- The Lord Chancellor said that he.j^d akeml]' girn� bi� opinion, that ih-it question cni^ld nOI be put, The wiloess miglit be asked a.s to his knowledge of any circumylauces which occasioned Ihe quarrel. Did any cirfumslances to your knowledge occur in tbe Prinpiss's residence that occasioned a quarrel between you and tbe Baron Ompleda? By the confession of the servaa). 1 saw the servant ou bin knees begging pardon for his crime. The facts tb'.n are not on your uwa kiipwledge? I saw the servant ou his knees. The Lord Chaocellur said the facts most be proved by that servant. The first part of the vritneiis's answer, " by the confession of the servant," was, judicially speaking, an oekuow ledgmeiit thai he knew nothing of it. Before whom was that servant kneeling, and what was the name of that servant? Before the Princiss of Wales, and his name was Maurice Crede. The Earlof Lauderdale said, bethought it competent for Ihe Noble Lord lo ask who Ihe servant was, but that il would be improper tu go iolo the circumstaurea which he had slated. Earl Grey said, that uo circumstance nf the servant's confession had been stated. The witness's answer merely slated that he had seen a servant on his knees to the Prioress of Wales, and that the name of that servant was Maurice Crede. The Eail of Landerdale said, he perfectly agreed with whm his Noble Friend bad said, looking to the witness's answer alone;' but coupling Ihe question and answer lozelher, an impression was conveyed to the minds of their Lordships, that the witness had a knowledge which was derived from the cOnfessioD of the servant. Earl Grey explained. Lord Holland said, that a question had been put, answered, and taken down by the short.hand writer, and a sub-sequenl put and answered, when j Noble Lord had risen and ohjecled lo ihe preceding question and answer standing on the minules. He confessed that for tbe sake uf saving Ihe time of the House he thought that not only in this, but in all futdfc cases, it would be best for tha ohjecliun to be taken at the moment, and not lo permit any going back, or the consequence would be, thai the House would he employed nol in discussing any question before their Lordships, but ou questions long gone by, which must lend to still greater loss of time. The Lord Chancellor said be thought ihe question and answer ouglU to be allowed lo remain on-the minules. If appeared that the confession uf the serraot led to the quarrel, but whether there was. oue word nf truth in that confession' was left uncertain, for as the witness hud said, he knew by the roofessiuu of lheservaiIt,nsto tfaefaels ofthat confession, I hey could not ask Ihe wiloess, and then properly came iliename of Ihe servant. The Marquis of Buckingham said, that the question and answer appeared to refer only to a private quarrel between Ihe witness aud Baron Ompteda, aud was no part uf the issue which their I.ordship3 had lo try. He gave it therefore, as his opinion, that the quesliou and answer ought to be expunged from the minules. Lord Carnaivon said, lhal ihere was one view of the question which was most impnriaul, as the witness slated, that he himself forbade Ihe inteiference of the servants, inasmuch as it went very materially to affect Ihe credit of Ihe wiloess M.-ijocchi. . Il might clearly be inferred that whatever the confession of the servant was, the witness connected that confession and his quarrel with the Baron Omp-leila ; the name of that servant had been elicited, and be thiiu;�ht that was all that was necessary. The Maiquis of Buckingham said a few words, but the purport uf what he said could not b.: heard below the bar. The Marquis of Downshire said-You alluded to a servant whom you saw on his knees before her Royal Highness; who.'ie servant was he? He was a servant of her Royal Highness llie Prinress of Wales. I wish lo ask, whellier il was out of any thing which this man s;iid to her Royal liishncss that your motive arose for calling out ihe Baio.ii d'Ompleda ?- The Earl of Lauderdale here rose, and exclaimed with bis Ageuls lu proceeding with his opinion thai there was nutliiutf indecent i'l lierg.imi's passing Ihc uighl uiidir the tnil with her Royal lligliuess ' I can prove the iinpossihily of i^etfiug ou deck, as llie l<-nt came down ovtr the hatchivay all round on the side where the ladder was placed. You have staled lhal Ihere was no light kept in the din-me-ruum after dark ? No. tVliat Yvaif lite oeca.sioii of your going from Ihc diiiing-rooin up Ihe steps of Ibe teni ? From the habit of guiug that way In the day lime. I did not know that the tent wa.s closed. I think il was abtiiit ten o'clock. At what periuil of the year was ihis ? We left Jaffa ou Ihe I7lh July, and arrived at Syracuse on the 30ih August. Dti you mean to say thai at that period of the year it was �lot dark al 10 o'clock ? It was as dark as il is at such hourat sorb a periud. When you were going up the ladder of the lent, at l� n o'clock, did you know that the lent was closed ? I did mil. ' Hy Ijiri Grosvuiior-Have yuu any reason to believe that from the violent attack oo the -tionse of Iter Kdyaj Hiahness atGonOa, trqm pn.-cediu< circumi^lauces relatival lo Baruii Oinpteda, or from any other circumstances, that bef llt^yal Highness eutectarned appreheusiuus with i-egard ti) ht r perappal .safpty ? Sliedid; she had mentioned it to me^ Aud did (be lu cuDsrquence of such apprehension require some warniih, thai the witness had b.-fure said it was by the diicctiuu (f her Royal Highness that he had called out the Baron.-(Several Peers cried " No, no!") Eirl Grey said, that ilie witness had not said so. The Lord Chancellor said he apprehended that whatever might be the motive of this Gentleman calling out the Baron d'Ompted.i, it can have ufilhingat all In do with this case. The Alaiquis of Downshire conceived he had a right to put the question. The Lord Chancellor-The Noble Lord will allow me lo say, I dnii'l meau to intimidate bim; hut 1 do not think I should do my duty, if 1 did not directly aud phiiulysay that I think this qurstiou uught nol to be put. Lord Liverpool thought it would be much to the advantage of ihelr Lordships, in lessening the consumption of Iheir time, if after the opinion given upun auy question of evidince hy the Nohie Lord nn Ihc Woolsack, the House wire lo reel satislied, or immediately refer the question to the Learned Jui-iges. His Lordship knew it might he said that llie House was not bound to adhere to the strict rules of evidence in olhtr Courts of Justice, but he believed there was not a case before the House in any thing like modcru times, iu which their Lurdships did not appear to have put that legal reslricliuu on themselves. This case had proceeded hilhulo ou Ihe clear understanding that tbc reception of leslimouy was to be governed by Ihe rules of evidence in the Courts below, and his Lordship considered it would be productive uf the greatest mischiefs, and wouhl plunge the House into a sea of difficulties, if their Lordships were now lo consider themselves perfectly at liberty lo put any and every qncsliun that suggested itself. Earl Grey was of opinion Ibat Iheir Lord...hips ought lo coufine themselves lu those rules of law �hich prevail with respect to evidence in the Courts below. Having already laid down that as (he rule, as far as il was possible to be practised in the present case, his Lordship did nut think it right to drparl fiom that rule. He did uut understand, however, that his Noble Friend the Marquis of Downshire would press the qne.stion, because, if he did, it did appear lo his Lorilship that il was nol connected with the issue of this cause in snrh a maliuer as to miike it a legal question. He therefore hoped it would not be pressed. The Marquis of Dowushir�i^l have no objection to withdraw Ihe question. It appeared tu me imporlaut; and as noue other of your Lordships asked iij I thought I might as well. The ^amiualioD re y:the Marquis of Downshire. Where is Maurice Crede-with whom dues he now live?

Then yoo are not positive that you lave not seen them so Walking while Berganii was a courier ? I do not recollect to have seen l)iem so. By Lord Hood-Did the Baron d'Omptedd dine with her Royal Highness at Miiqn? I think he did. Did he dine with her at ConH) ? He did. Did he dine wilb her at Villa Villani ? He did. Did Majoccbi wait at the Princess's table at thuse places? He did. By the Duke of Athol-Have you not said you coQsidereil it neces.sary, in the lilualion of'the Princess of Wales on board the polacre, that a male domestic should sleep near h^r ? I h�ve. Did you ever express that senlimeut to the Princess of Wales ? I never did. In giving yourrea.iOns why you did not thinlc it degrading to the station of her Royal Highness lo have a male domestic sleeping in ihe tent with her, I think you said that Ihere was no mystery in the case, as Ihe comniunicaiion by Ihe hatchways to the lent were always open ; yuu have said that oue night io attempting lo go up the hatchway yoii found the lent closeil, did you think there was any mystery in that? Tbe tent being closed, I supposed her Royal Highness retired to rest; I did not think there was any mastery iu that. Was Bergami ip lite tent at that periud? I did not sec him-I do nol know, and I cannot tell. Do you know that be was not in the tent ? I do nol. 1 think the witness has already spoken to Bergami's sleeping io the tenI-^Serera/Peer* cried "iVo! No', heheaid it, an ughain interposed and said, the witness had nut slated Ihat no danger was appreheuded, but that he himself knew uf no immediate danger. Was there any danger ? I do nol know uf any iminediile danger ; uut personal danger : if I had thought that, I should nol have been easy myself in sleeping below. Was there any danger, such as wouhl have induced you at any lime lo rccommeodthal_ajnak_di�i.neHtic should sleep iu Ihe tent? I nejief did recommend il. By Lord Gratrfham-Yon have said that at Carlsrnhe the Princess diiifdat the Grand Duke's <xcepl one day, when she dined at Ihe Margravine's; did yon dine with her at those place? Yes. You have also said Ihat shesnpped at the Court, or at the Margravine's; what is the hour of dinner at that Court? 1 du not recollect the hour sufficiently la be able tu maik it. Have you any recollection nf the lateness of the hour of Ihe supper and evening parties there'? 1 can't say ; it was late; 1 bbould think past twelve. Can you say whether her Royal Highness had time to return home bciweeu dinner and supper,either when they were ut the samfe house or when she dined at oue aud supped al the other? I should imagine she might. Did she, to your knowledge, return home between iliiiner aud supper on eilher of those days? 1 do not recollect that she did. Will yotf undertake to say that she did not return home on any uf those occasions? I will undertake to say lliat I do not recollect it. If I had ibe smallest recollecliou of it I wonid have no hesitation in slating it. Examined by Lord Darlington-I will <all the witness's recollection to the time Bergami, Camera, and Theoduie took leave of her Majesty on board the polacre. He has said, that when they took leave of her Royal Highness they each kissed her hand. I wuuld ask, whether he kiiuws that Bergami did not take leave uf her Royal Highness befuie coming on deck ? 1 do dot kuow; i have out an idea of il. Did you see those tbieepersons come upon deck lugcther? They were.all uu deck together. What! Bergami, Theodore, and Camera? All on deck. Did tbe Princess come on deck wlini you were all there ?

The Shbrlhand Wrjterj In i-eading "this apsiver, left out Ihe words, " That is'my firm belief." Mr. Brod^liani wished lo kiiow tliereaion why lhii�e words were left oiil-there [were persons near him who cvuui swear that he said^ "Th'it is my firm lielief ?" .Several of their Lorpships observed, they beard the witness nse lite words. Mr. Gurney said he hid tiot lieai-d them in consequence of ihe witness droppit g his voice. Lord Darlington rrsumed-1 wUh to ask Mr. Howoam whether Bergami-1 aib aware tii;lt he has not sw.'rn posi--lively that Bergami did sleep niu^er the tent, hoi yuu havf? slated thai it was yo^iir bjlicf that he was uiider Ihe lent- uow 1 wish tb know whether yuu also Biippbse thut B*rgaihi nlnst haVe reCluicd ill Ihe saiiie manner, with his cluthi s 6n- uess on any occasions except that you have just meiitiune of Camera, Theodore, or any other persou of her suite ? have seen bim lake leave more ibau oitee, and 1 have never seeu auy thing else but kissing her band as every body else did. Now, Sir, during the course of your very long examina. tiuu, you have frequently mentioned- her Royal- Highness sleeping-on board the polacre, under ibe lent-wben you have qieDtiwiLi) her sleeping in that-tent, 1:apprehend you meat)'that she rather rep-jged uo the sofa, tbsD slept, io (he TIte Lord CbanceltoN^Tbat question cannot he put in. ihls fcaae.

The witness -I dobotliiink B.Tginii ever took his rhiiliei off either, for I liever soiv bim in his hrd-clothes under llie lent. Does Mr. H'lwnarii kriow where il was thatMn-r R.'yal Highness changed her clothes on the return from iadd- whether il was iu Ihe tent or hHow ? Below in hi r c-ihiii, I am certain. I-oevt-r saw her charrge her cJoldes on derk I ajiprehend you never saw her change her clothes? No; uut any wh� re. Did yoii, Mr. Howoam, from a window at the Villa d'Este, ever see the dance which Mahomut performed at auy time? Idid; I was in her Royal IIighness's room^l forj.t what 1 had to do there. When I heard a noise in Ihe court-yard, her Ro^al Highness went lo the window as I did, and Alahu-met exhibited the dance before some persons ; 1 do not know who they were, but befure several-there were aeveiai iii the conri-yai'd. Does Mr. Howiiam know where .MiijorrlM was at ihij lime? No; I did not take parlicular iioliee of liiin; lher� were many of the servants there-Itraniiut say that he positively was ihfeie. Was any other person in the room hesiJes her Royal Highness and yuorseU? 1 du not Ihink there was; 1 have uu recull^ctioo of auy other person being iu the ruuin hut myself and her Royaj Highness. Did you conceive : that there was any great impropriefy or indecency iu tliul dauee? Certainly nol; I iitvcr did. Now, Sir, I beg ieaie to ask you how long it is since yim have 81 eu Captiio Bfiggs ? 1 have seen the Captain :t Porlsmouih, abuul iwO months ago, 1 should think. Had yon any conversation with him upon this subject- did any Cnnversatioq pass helweeu you at Ihit lime oo the subject of this iiiqiiiry? Yes; he declined- The Allornej.General objeclfed ti) this, which wis overruled. The Lord Chancellut-The wilncss had said, " He dc cliued." Witness-Captain Briggs dctllncd entering into any conversation on the snhjecl. Andyouuiver have had, to the beat of your recollection, any conversation with Captain Briggs since yuu came fium the Leviathan? 1 never have; I have only seen Capl. Brings but once. And if yon tver had any conversation with Captain Briggs on this subject, do yoa think you woulu itcolleel il? i think I shou'd recoiled it. " By l-ord Eilenhuroogh-Yon say that you saw Captaiii Brings lit I'ui Ismuuth, uu the su^ject of this inquiry -di 1 yon propioe any such coiivrraatiuii with Inui ? 'Ihe object of my going lo I'ortsmuiilII-it was for nnself. Wlial Wiis your reason for wishing lo euuverse with Capt. Briggs on this subject ? I heard that he was coining as a witness against her Majesty, ami 1 ftlt cunvinc'd il conld nut be so, 1 declared lhal 1 would gu and ask Ciplain Briggs uiyS' if. tVhat did you, in point of fad, ask Captain ttiiggs, if it was the fact that he was coining? I a...kcd if it was true that be was coming, ^Vhat did he answer ? He said he thought he should be called; he was afraid tlial he should have lo give Ids ttsi-miny, which should be nothing but wlral was liuiiuurable and just. Was thai the whole of Captain Briggs's answer ? I think so; I don'l recollect any more. In Ihat answer Capluin Briggs does not appear lo have declined enteiittg into a conversation on the suhjrtl ?
