OHN BURGESS and SON, being apimsed of the nunierons endeavours made by many persona to impose a spurious article fur their make, feel it incumbent upon them to request the attention of the Public, in purchasing what they conceive tu be the Origiual, to observe the N.ainfur the Cure u( rStrictnres, and sole Prupriei^r an>l Tender of Daran'a Medicated Bougies, haviug, during a .course of Mpwar4.s of 37 years of extensive practice iufases of Stricture, observed :niimberless. .distressing inaMqces of iBuplure,* ardentiy. applied himself ;IU: disro.vrc a re. .medy forau prevalent a lunlady, and whiiMeread,.a(nd the names called over. Mr. Powell was ordered to-^llend.atjhjt'bar ofthe House, wiih the extracts from, the con;espppdeitce with Colonel E|rown, relative to the caueesof seii,diog.R^tel[i out uf the country and the reasons fa^r-bif detejilioji.; ^ Th^-C^rl of La'nderda|i^!;reer8 according to ilie orders given lo him by Ibe House ? Mr. Powell said, lhat in obedience to the orders of Ihe House, he had prepared such extracts as were ordered, which he had ihere to present, sealed, accordius to the orders of the House. He begged leave to adij, that whatever had been done by him with respect to producing any.of the papers of the correspoiideuce with the Milan Comtnissuui, had been done solely from a sense of the duty which he owed to his client.-(//car, hear.) The Marquis of Lansdown wished Ihe witness to state what parts of the correspondence he hail delivered in. Thf Earl of Lauderdale, wilh some warmth, expressed his conviction that the answers of Ihe witness had already satisfied the House. Tlie Earl of Carnarvon did not feel such perfect salisfac. tion as Ihe Noble Earl. He wished lo know at least whether or not Ibc-exiracts delivered were the whole of those-wbich related lo the subject ? He was lite mure anxiotts for tbhi, as he understood that the power of the Committee was limited, that they could not go in|o that inquiry, but were only lo compare the extracts produced with,tlie originals, If Ihe Commillee were lo haye the power ofexamtoing so as lo know if Ihey were all Ihe extracts which heloogeil.,la. Ihe subject, that being a point of (hs gvettest t importance, he WIS quite indifferent whether the information wete.given to the House or Ihe Cnnimittee. Tlie Earl of Lauderdale made some reply. The Earl of Liverpool hoped, that the conversation wpnld go no further. It was not regular to ask Mn Powell any more questions at the bar. The order for the examination before a Secret Committee was positive, and the House onglil to be bound by it. If the Comtnilleechose to ask-ai^y questions like lhat proposed, they had full power to do so. The Earl of Darnley, Earl Grey, aud the Marquis of Lans-down made a few ubaervatious each. The Lord Chancellor put the question, that Mr. Powell should he ordered tq.atteiid Ibe Cummiltee. The Marquis of Lansdown prpposed that Mr. Powell should be sworn at the bar, Ihe Committee haviog no power to receive his oath. Mr. Powell was sworn accordingly, to observe the trath in Ihe papers and evidence which he would deliver before the Committee. Thomas Logo ilatifiiore was then put to Ihe bar, sworn, and examined by Mr. Wilde. Where do you lire? I have a house al Como. What occupation did you follow ? A fisherman^ Were yon employeil aa boatman lo her Royal Highness lh� Princess of Wales ? Yes. Do you know Uggieri? I do. What is he ?

No. In what pari of the boat did her Royal Highness sit ? Ou the left. Did you sit in such asitualiun as lo see her Royal Highness. I did. \yaa Ihe boat lighted ? Yea. Did you sit in such a situation that if they had kissed you miisi have seen it ? I did. Are yon quite suie of lhat- The Solicitor-General objected to his Learned Friend putting a question of that sort to his own witness. Mr. Wilde said he wonid put it in'auotherfjrm. Have you any doubt about it ?-- The Solicilor-Geuprnl still olijerled. Mr. Wilde contended lhat he had a right Icl ascertain wilh what dfgrecof certainly the witness spoke. The l.ord Clmucellor said, the witness had already sworn positively. Cross-cxmxincd A;/'Ac Solicilor-Geiieral. How many tunes have yon carried her K Yes, 1 brought lier back to the Villa.

The Lord Chaucellur sanl he thought the question ought td be put, " when he said he s%vore,"' because a man mig';t take an oath wiihutit kissing a book or a cross. The said, after Ihe witness had acknowledged iu his cross-examination lhat he had been sworn, his Learned Frieud asked him, whether he was sivorn according to the forms of InkiuE ail oalh Ih this country? but anothsr mode of swearing .might he in use al Milan. Mr. Brougham said, that in answer lo ihe general qnes-lioii of " What did he do wheu he wa.i sworn?" the wiiiies.^ always entered iiilu a lung account uf his deposiliou, and at leiiglli Ihey had been obliged lo suggest tu him the made.of twearin;, in urder lu asceitaiu whether he had, in fact, been sworn or not. TheSolicilor.Griieral-^I am entitled to ask him if he he'd up his Ihree fingers ? The Lord Chancellor-I understand Mr. Brougham dors not bohl up his finger against your buldiog up three.- (jMughterJ Now at Ibe lime when he says he took the oalh, ask bia\ whether he held up his three fingers? The witness had said, " No, Sir," but the liiterprrter was (iroceeding lo ask him another question before interpreting the first part. Mr. Brougham-.Marrhesc, he said, "No, Sir." Now you should give that lo the House first. The Lord Chancellor-The best way is, fur Ihc Interpreter not lo give the ioterprttalion till the witness has finished his answer. -(//ear, Aear.) Mr. Brougham-My object specifically was this : that after the man had said, " No,'Sir," the Interpreter should not proceed to say any thing more lo the witnesses-that ia what Ihe Interpreter was proceeding to do. Lord Miiilo-" I had niy eyes un the witness, and I ani sure he had finished, till ibe Interpreter said suinethliit else." The Interpreter-" He appeared lomelowish losaysomf-tliiog more."
