Visiting Cards neatly engraved. THE QUEEN'S TRIAL. HOUSE OF LORDS,'Tuesday, Oct. 24. The House asoeniblH this morning, as usual, at ten oVInCk. The Lnitl Chancellor look hii sent on the wool-sack.   Prayers were read, and the House culled over. Earl Grey then rose and iibserveil, that orording to Ihe anulnguns practice of the Courts hi low, Ihe House ought to be put inlo ilie possession of Ihe original depositions of the witnesses for the prosecution which were taken at Milan. He proposed, if tho�e deposiliuns were hot laid before Ihe House, to make a specific mblion, when the proper stage of these proceedings should arrive to secure the possession of those ilepositious furihe Boni^e. The Lord .Chancellor begged leave of their Lordships lo slate his opioiitu ojion Ihe ap|iliraliun which had been made lo-ffie^Housc by the King's .4ltiiriiey-General for delay, in order-to bring over-Colonel Brown In give evidence in Gun� tradirtiuD of -iiarticiilar parts iif the testimony prpduceU fot' the defence. H* bad ' caiernlly p>.>rn ed the book' Of evidence, and his conviction upon the whole was, lh.it there were no sntBcieot grounds stated to induce the House to grant ibe ap|�licalion. There was very litlle of the evidence whirh could malrrially nfft-cl Ihe character of Colonel Bniwn, and that which inighl he supposed the most materially to aflFect the ch-irnrier of Oilniirl Brown, had uccnrrrdfull Iwnmiinllis hgo,siiire which KHlTicieul time had (dapsed to enable the Counsel for Tlie Bill lo consult with Colonel Brown, and to lake measures lo produce him as a witness, hfid that been Ihoiight neressary. The Eail of D.irnley prolesli-il most solemnly against going on aiiyforthir in lhe�e prneeeilings. His LorrlBliip stated three grounds opon wliirh he olijerted to proceedin;;: the ,tir9t wa.�, the developeiiieiit which had taken plai-e with regard lo the absence of Itastelli; the second iirose from the correspondence which had occnrnd with respect to the prevention of B.-iroii' d'Eiide's attendiiiu'e; lastly, Ihe otter iinpussihillty of examining inlo the qneylioli of conspiracy with res(>i'Ct to Ihe Milan Cooiintssion. These rireumstanres rfiulered It impo.'ssihle to ilo thatfiir .ijid er|tml jiislire which was due to Ilie connlry, n�i lens to the Queen, and the House hail no other rom'-dy for the evil than lo refuse ip pniceeil The Marqnis Camden bore lestimony to the excellent and gallant character of Colonel Ibown. In funrleeii years of haid military service the Colonel had hi-rii seven times wouoiled. His l.nrilsliip wns eciiiviHceii that there was no man who coiihl f�-el more dauntless anxiety lo face inquiry than Colonel l*iuwn. I.nrd HoM'ind ohjeeted to the prstclire nf Peers rising up to eulogize any individuals who might have been implicated by the |irnceetlie subject. How lung is it since you received that letter on the subject ?   About seven or eight weeks ago. When the proceedings jsere going on in this House? Yes, 1 was called on lo say if such a conversation liad happened; 1 answered the letter by aayiug that it bad. I'hat letter brought it lu your remembrance then? I always recollected the conversation. Can you name any .person lu whom, you bad ever mentioned it? 1 remeniber telling Sir George Cockburn, thai such a thing bad happened. He is on? of the Lotrds.uf the Admiralty ?   Yes; it was some time ago. How long-ngo ? I am at a loss to say-It may be ten miiiillis ago-long befoie 1 had any idea of being brought as a witness. Sir George.Cockbr-rn had;been asking you qneations then ? No; I forget what led to the cunTersatiou, but 1 remember ihe fact of iny lelliog ititu him. You have bad the honour of dining with the King, I believe?   Yes, at Porlsmonlh. Sineelhe proceediog^coinmencfd in lht�.Uouse?   Yes. Jttexamined Oti tlie Attorney-General.

Vf�, wilblh^ Officers of Ilie-NaVy; all the Cajii laioa without exceptioti were pira�(!�."-- f^;* By a Peer-When the conversation yijn have related took place-willi Lieutenant llownam, cair you swear positively llint the words he used were, "I ftnrc 'gone on my knees," and so forlh, aud out, " 1 roiiM bnve gone on my knees?" 1 understood him lo say that be lind giiae mi his knees. I' understood Captain Briggs to say-iihat .he had not made any mrtnorandnm of the cnuvfrsalioft, and that Ihe time he first mentioned it was-Ave years after it tiibk place ; can Captain Briggs charge his memory, so n-s to speak witli certainly, with Ihe pdiiicular words spoken in conversations that have passed, five years ago? I remember the words used on that occasion, fiom Ihe circumstance nf having called lo my i-rcullectioii my explanation v^ilh Captain Pechell. When the words yon have nientioncd'bad passed with' Lipoleannt Hownam, did you conceive that the circumstance of Bergatni having sa! at table wilhlier Royal Highness first arose out of any thing particular at tbe lime, or Ihai it was Ihe consequence of some settled ari-angement ?--' The Attorney.Geueral made some objection t� the question, and after ir few words from Lord Laudenlale and the l.t>rtl Cli'-iiieellor, it was pu', wlietlier Captain HrFggs knew thai it had arisen out of any particular circumstance at the moaiHiil, or was the result of previous arrangements? I understood him,- in answer lo a question tvliich 1 had asked hintr that it bill happened on the day when his stinalion was changed from that of a servant^ lo that of companion. The Allorney-Geoeral safd, that iu'the present srlua-tioii of -Ihe case, he would not trouble their Lordships by calling any more witnesses al prCNCOt. He would only now humbly move their Lordships, af C^iptaiii Briggs- had professional flutiea to attend lo at Porlsmonlh, that the order lor his attendance shnnhl be discharged. The Lord Chancellor asked if the Counsel on the other side coiiBented ? Mr. Brougham said, he had no wish In give any unnecessary fouhle either to his Leuriieii Friend or to Cnpt. Briggs. The DnUe of Somerset wished I.ieul. Hownam lo be recalled to the bar. The Earl of Liverpool rose for the purpose of submitting to their Lordships, wliethrr, tu obviate the inconveniences which miglil arise from the exercise of their privilege, by Ihe calling hick ofany former witness, orcalling in any new witness al ihe desire ol" any Peer, it would not be better that some ground should be staled fir Ihe application. The Diike of Somerset said, he had wished -Lieutenant Hownam lo he called, h'-cause tie wanted further infortna-itoii on sHtne p int�. lie iliniight 'tie might explain several circninstaiK-es respecting.the tent oirboard the polacre, such as Ihe light,the di.sposition nf the tent, aud whether it ctuld be npened from the outside by any of Ihe persons on deck, which he thought it belter should be inore clearly tindei-siouil than he was now able lo understand litem The Earl of Liverpool thought Ihe reasons slated insufii-eieiil for calling hack a witness wliose'cxaminalion had gone to so great a length on those points, as it might lead] lo much iiicoovenieiice ; whAl one Nohle Lord wisheil to have explained by one witness, another might think another witness better able lo speak lo. After some coiiveisatioii, in which the Marquis of Lans-, down, Eurl  v ailniiliej to iirr Kuyal Mighuess's        The Liir.l Chancellor then asked Mr. Brougham whether " i lliey were oow prepared .to proceed to'the summing up? I That Geiilleniao iiplied, that in Ihe present sitnalion of the �case, ami in order to save ti-ooble tu their Lordsliip:i, they would proceed'now. - � . Air.

We bave-beeii charged with making use of ibveclive, decla-maiioiiy and Violipnce, for Ihe purpose of prodticiug an efic-ct, not in, but out of doors; nay, I miisl beg tciive to etate,tbat my Leariied Friend teemed lo Ihiuk lhat  n some occasions we bad borne loo hard upon him. But I most disclaim all in. tenlion ofbearing bard upon htm, or casting any impntalion upon his honour aiid character; and therrf.ire, if from what fell from me yrstirdHy he seemed to Ihiiik that 1 questioned his veracity, I beg lo say, that if any thing which dropped from nie could be clothed with such a suppusilion, and could seem to warrant such an assertion, I unequivocally retract it before the assembly in the face of which it was  made, and am  surry  lhat any  languBge of mine should have led to such a mistake. , I have no intention of giving uneasiness in any ciuarter, but I must say 1 h.ave fell it deeply, and often, ip Ibe course nf this proceeding. Therefore, il is impossible for a man not to ask indulgence fur any warmth he may have . expressed; because our il'us. triout client has, from the moment of ber first selling foot in Ibis country, been the victim of the most ciuel oppres. sion and Ihe most dreadful aud irreparable wrung.   That galling recollection has attended us through'the whole of these proceedings: it must- (�e our i-xciise for any warmth inlo which we may have been betrayed, and, llierefore, without any further apology, we shall proceed to the consideration of Ihe case..  But, my Lords, while 1 disclaiui all personal impntalion on  my. Ijearned Friend, I claim the right of adverting to hit conduct as an advocate ; for, from Ihe conduct of Ihe advocate,  we colled  not only Ihe impressions of his mind, but also the nature of the inttructiont under whirh be is acting, and the spirit under which the prosecution is condncted; and I must here call yobr Lordships' attention lo Ihe spirit of the case which my Learned Friend has the misforlune lo direct-acase, ibe weight of which has more than puce picssed bim down -a case which iiolbiug wilbin (he scope of purchase, nothing within the scope of humaii ambition, could have indnced me to purchase.   I speak of ihe office which,ray Learned Friend has undertaken in the prosecutipu of .the BiM bf Pains and Penall'^,'lo divoi-'ce and degrade the wife of (be Ringof England. In order to see (he'nature of (he proof brbnght'funvard in sopporl of thi.f charge, we inuat lookiu Ifie natilre-ar tlie charge itself, liuiist'theirefiii-e ag-.iin refer lo Ihe mnde of the iudictment.   [The Learned Counsel re-capllulsled here the preamble of the Bill.]   1 am aware, my Lords, that you are noder tbe second leadiiig of this Bill; and that 1, in addressing your Lordships, have merely to apply myself lo the nature of Ihe proof brought forward in sdpp'ort of the allegations laid iu that preamble.   It has been staled, anil the whole preamble goes lo charge it, and il has indeed been proved, that Bergami had been in a menial situation in the service of her Royal Highuess, and had been afterwards promoted ; it is true also, that several of bis relations were also taken iuto the service of her Royal Highness;  it is true, loo, that Bergami receired several marks of favour, bestowed both upon himself aud his family.    In Ihe preamble of the Bill you are lold that he oblaiped titles and orders; hut it should have been shewed that those titles and nrilers had been procured for him by her Royal Highness.   All lhat yoii have heard is,  that at one period be was withnul tiilrs, nod thai al a suhsequeut one he possessed them.   Bui there has not been a little of evidence toshew how he obtaiurd ihem, or lhat her Royal Highness was, in any wny, instrumental in procuring Ihem for bini, except, indeed, that the conferred upon hiiu a pretended order of knighthood, which she is said to have instituted without any legal right or authority so In do.   But, my Lords, I think, before this pari nf the preamble was charged as a crime against her Majesty, we ought lo have heard something lo prove thai none but Koyal peraoiia had a riffbt to instilnle Orders.   In my inquiry 1 have found that many persons li-ive instilulcd Orilers,iiot possessing sovereign power.   In France it has beeu done by individuals not so gifted; and there was, 1 recollect, an Order instituted .^by three brothers, who were Italian mercliantB (their nain^s 1 cannot now rrcoUecl); all whirh goes to show that there have been precedents of this nature esinblished by persons below the rank of royalty.   I treat this part of the ques. lion with seriousness, my Lords, because it is so treai.-d in the preamble of Ihe Bill.   It is charged against her Royal Highness as one of Ihe acts of invasion of the Royal antho-rily.   When this is the first instance wilbtii six ceiiluries of a European Priiicf-ss visiting the holy sepulchre, there can surely be no crime if she, delighted with the adventure and struck with the novelty of all aruttnd ber,does lhat which the Duke of Orleans and the Duke de Binirbou have dune liefoie her-institute an order of knighthood to reward those who accompanied her.   I can hardly suppose, that this CJii be visited With any peculiar severity against her Royal Highness, though il is the charge against lier which has beeu best proved.   My Lords, Bacon says that Princes sometimes amn-ie themselves with the toy of trecting buildings, and sometimes with the toy of creuling an order. This Illustrious Lady is proved to have erected au additional wiiig to the Villa d'E-te, which, 1 nniltrstaiid, is iu the best   taste, and  no  discredit  lo  her   Royal   Highness's judgment,  however it    may dilT.-r  fi-uia   any of those buildings recently erected iu this country.   1  cnuie now, my   Lords,   to   the   charge of   adulterous   intercourse, aiid  the real question  fur your   Lorilships' consideration is, whether the- adulterous intercourse has taken place ; between her Majestsly the Queen of this realm, and Barlo-lomeo Bergami, and whether thai intercourse has been c-ir-ried  on under such ciicumsfanccs as to   bring scandal and disgrace upon  the It'iyal   Family  of this country, as alleged   in   ihe   preamble of this  Bill.    It   is  well known lo your Lordships lhat we were left in the dark as lo Ihe places where and the limes when this adnlier- j of a Grntlcmaii In ons intercourse was supposed lo have taken place, The AltorneyiGenerars opening speech was onr first billof iii-diclmeut ; from that alone'cijiild we learn the spe.eiljcalion of Ihe charges; but not a witness was therein namedby whom any one of those chaiges was to be supported, ailil the,only way  in   which  I  c.^n go   into  the examinatidii .of ,t,he .(hr ogli this to throw a colour over Ihe wlinle of the case. ,,",,puihal uiphh," said the Altdrney-Generalj "her Alnjesiy , ordered her paramour tu sleep in a r�om edjainioglo firr amn, that she might haVe easy access lu Him, he ha-viti^ bp to that tinie Always slept atadislancefrooi her.
