Mr. Brougham advanced to- the-bar and requested that Mademoiselle Demuot might herecalleil. The SoliciloC'Genenil sgtd, shehad.been sent for. ' After a shod jiauee, the Sulicilur-General said he was informed Mr. Vizard, the agent for her Majesty, bad statedlo Mr. Msule, thai Demonl would not be wauted till twelve o'clock, -- � � � ' ' �� �"� ,ttlr.; Brougham said, Ihathad beibeen in an ordinary.eciurt of JiMticc, he shuulddiaveiiadfSome fldiibtsuf the propriety ,.o,ffering tbe evidence, which he -w^s now iabnut; to ,pro. pnse to their Lordships; but considering tbe nature of the cbarge and the nature of the Court, be could not hut think it ought to be accepted. The preamble of the Bill charged : her Majesty with bringing seitn||iil>ittd'diiihonouij on : kingdom and briogiUg-inId'ciiiSMntit'lhe'dignil^r uf tbe . Crown. He tenilered the eyi)feiid|^w:liich be now hold in bis hand to rebut that charge, nud'he^iiiighri^^was snffieieiit to satisfy any reasonabletiinn, lllttl^}^ nfiijeslyVcondnet had not been such as the.preiimblpofiilte Bili'sthled.' The paper he held in bis band was an Ansl^jin"(7a2e7^e, published in Trieste at the time her Royal H^hnessivas there. It stilted her reception as a Princees by'uAi'coiistitiited authorities ; lhat she had gone to tbe opera-'iif-the evening, and ifnrllier they currntjorateil the material fact, l^t her RuyAl Highness arrived on one day and departed oniflre day fo|luwiu|;. The Attorney-General said, if ^fas 'impossible that this evidence could be received. If their Lordships-were to re., .reive the evidence of foreignAieWpapers, it would have been competent ftir liim (o biyttrpf^iif^iff.CazelleB'nnd'Papers which contained vijijimoos reports of her Majesty, but which, ofc�i�rse,he bad abstaiiicttfrom doing. The Solicitor-General said, it was quite cirar from his Learned Friend's manner of putting it, ftiat he was folly aware uf tbe inadmissibility of the evidence he had proposed;-and it Was equally clear, that his object in dfferiug it was tu shew the time of arrival and depaVtiire of her Majesty fri�m Trieste. But as his Learned Friend must t>e conscious that his evidence could-not be received, be was at a loss what name to apply to so palpable an attempt at making an unautburised impressiou on their Lordships' mind. Mr. Brongham said, that he did not deny (bat it was not evidence usually received in Courts of Justice, but they were not here in a Court of Justice. There her Majesty would have many advantages ; for instance, she could have rhalleiiged all those of the Jury who bad sat on the Grand Jnry. She conid have been admitted to object to such of the Jurymen as had made dcelaralions out of doors hostile to her Majesty; and above all, she could have objected to the prosecutors, to those who had preferred the' Bill, from sitting as her Judges. All those things would have been open to him in a Court of Justice ; he did not know if their Lordships would be pleased to permit it to he opened to him at a future period-if he thought they would, he should feel comforted at the refusal to hear tbe evidence he now offered. He should be well content if his Learned Friends would convert that into a Court of Justice, and ad. init him to all the advantages he h-id stated, and then he sluiuld be willing to waive his right'to offer the evidence now proposed. But when a person was to be tried by an adverse party-by those who were one day the acciiseis anil the next ilay sitting in jlidgment ou the parly accused, that was such an anomaly against as would jiis.tify his claiming tbe receiving the evidence now offered J^bi* the lllustrions Accused. " The Lord Chancellor, after putting the question t'o the House, informed tbe Counsel for the Queen that the papers offered as evidence could not be received. The F-arl of Lauderdale wished Lieutenant Hownam's diploma of the Order of St, Caroline to he put in. The Lord Chancellor asked if Mr. Hown'am was in attendance. Lieutenant Hownam appeared al the bar and produced the diploma. The Lord Chancellor directed that it should be put in, Mr, Brougham asked if the document was under the regular seal of the order?-l^i'gh.) - '' ' � The diploma was then read in the original Italian, and trsniilated by the Marquis Spinetto, paragrapli by paragraph. It ran thus in the English:- '� I The Earl of Lauderdale ofTereil 3 few words as fij the mode in which 'the-witness should 'be examineil. i The Lord Chancellor said, that it would be within their : Lordships' recbileclioh that the rule they had hitherto pursued Ibroughout these prucecdings was, that after the exa-miilation, the cruss-exaniinatiun, tbe re-examinnliun, nml the examination by the Peers bad been gone through, Counsel on both sides should be permitted to suggest to the House any further questions they might wish to be asked, which if their Lordships thought proper they would alio* to be put. Acting on this rule, the course in ihe present instance would be, for the Counsel to put any questions Ibey might desir^ to ask through the House but ; perhaps it would save their Uirdships'time if they were to allow Ihe ; qursliuns to be put to the witness by tbe Learned Counsel at unce. .
