THE QUEEN'S TRI-4L. HOUSE OF LORDS, Saturday, Oct. 28. The Lord Cliaucellor entered (he House and prayers were read before ten o'clock. The names were then called over, aiid Counsel were culled in. The Attorney-General resumed bis address. When he closed his observations yesterday, be bad brought down the evideuce nearly to the i.iid of what had Ireeu termed the toug yoyage. He had omitted to notice an eveut which oc-<^urred iu.the rour.se of the previous jiiurney. Her Royal Higbucss had at Jerusalem besiowed on several of the suite an honour or order whicii she had there created.- This circumstance had bctn treated with pleasantry and ridiculf: by Ihc other side, and his Learuetl Friend b:id atlecled to consider it as a substantive charge, ns Ihe pre. amble of llie liitl. But it was only like the other facts, a pre-iunipliun or concUisioii of the main rharge in which their Lordships' conviction must be leil by all tlie facts takiu together; and however much of pleasantry and ridicule had been cast upon the diploma of Howoam by Mr. Br of Eiiilaiid, he meanlilie peiformaiice of (be seiviceof Ihe Pro. Iisl^int Rrligion-ihat service, the performance of which she Ought must stiiolly to liiive ciif.ircril. But no, that over-wlieliniiig passion which . nslaved iier, led her to oiii'l the per-(iiruiiince of timl scrvice-7liioui;h she could accompany her f.ivoiiied man lo hii, own place of worship,.sbe ncgleeled IhiLt which it wjs the duty of the Quci-ii of Kustaiid to huvo tdiserved-ipost s.nelly. .But wliAl is thciOidcr Tlie.(xr.iiiil �Master Wits ijergiiiui, for the �'first tiine: distinguished by_ the liljc of Coluuel, iIiourIi his rank in the army never exteedcd. lint of Qimrleimaster, au-swring to th:^t of an Gngjikh arrj^'uut.

Oh,- yes!; bediUUipt^i.' iW;te f_.^af^ iiii .the,: puJucrPjiJanikdufiiig ^tioi jout-rij-y from Jalfa to Cappodanda; that wa.t the reason, and he would leave the mutter with their Lordships, Uewuuld So mucb-less than he had stated in the opening. How sFO'idlhe case with his Learned Friends for Ihc defence? Biit: bow,"be'would'aBk, stood Ibe cuse.on the evidence produced^?: His Learned Friend (Mr. \Villiams) had pledged faiih^lf thht Ihree witnesses shbuld be uruduced, but two only had been examined. He could guess ivhu the third was lo be: but she (the Countess Oldi) Ihey had nut ircii-lured to bring forward, though from very diiTL-ient reasons. Vassali and Ilownam bulb say, that the baggage'was never uii|iarkeil; so thai all the preparations of which the former bid spoken must have been out of doors. He slated ibat oil Ifis return from Inaprnrk, their Lordships would iiud it at piige937, that he found her Majesty ou the bed, covered with a shawl, ursumelhing like it. But again he asked, was this a case lobe determined ou circumstances like those? Was a lady to remain for hours together iu a bed-rdom witli a man without Imputation or suspicion, because it was nut known whether she were dressed or undressed? It had been extorted frniii the witnesses on their-cross-t-xamination, ihit they had nut set out till broad daylight, which corresponded precisely with Ihe account of Demon I. Ou Vsssali's returu from Inspruck he felt no fatigue, bv never retired lo rest Ihe whole night, but wa.^, according to his owff account, entirely occupied in Walkiii;; in and out of her Ruya'l Highness'B room wilhoul any reusou or motive whatever. It was true he carried her Royal Highness suiueihing to eat, btil- that Inmeiluul to be not till six o'clock. If Ibat were considered a Iriumpbani contradiction to Uemoul, he confessedjhe saw notuu what the triumph was grouuded. He came now to ihe more iinportnnt case al Carlsruhe, and he would entreat their Lordships to examine il carefully, and Ihey would see lhat the' case stood aa firmly as when the- evideuce was first delivered. The important particulars which uceilrred at (|arlscuhe were proved by Barbara Kress: ah^ ha'd occasion to carry walCr into the room of Bergami, which their Lordships itould bear in miud was Ko. 12.nod was in comnuihicai|iuti with No. 10, the Princess's room. Waa that face ti-u^ or not? It was true; there was. do altempt 10 dcAvy-il; thrunglioutihc case Ihei'e was ito-�attempt tO'coi�h;�lirtrtl�rt^'5o>wlfl'tirt irt The contradiction in the preKut insfauce was bo easy, that Iheir Lordships were boutrd 10 believe the diBposiiiou of �h�r rooms was ns staled by Ihe witness Kress, To return to the particulars of her evidence, she stated Ibat oa one cveuiog, on carrying some water into tberoom No. 12, she saw Bergami io bell and Ihe Priiicesasitliug ua the bed- Mr. Denman-^The witness's words were, " She had been sitting on Ihe bed." The Atiuruey-Gcneral said he was going to advert to that rirriinistanre, and theit Lordsiiips woiild recollect Ihc dis. russion whirh took place as lo Ihe words used by the wit-iiess, but he thought there was no duubt from what she afterwards said, of the Princess jumping up, Ihst she was sitting on the bed when she was so unex|ieciedly surpris. ed by the chambermaid. She described the situation of ihe Princess sitting on the bed, and the arm of Bergaihi round her ueck, and that when sbepulercd Ibe room the arm was let fall. She, surprited al finding the Princess in sueh a situation, instantly retired. Now how was that case al. tempted to be met ? ^Vhy, thus: they attempt Iu-account, if possible, for every uiiitule of time while her Royal Highness remained at Carlsruhe. For lhat purpo.^e Lieut. Howoam is queslioncil, and he stales that her Koyal High, ness was almost always al Court, and Ihe whole of his lesii-niony only uniounled to a getierul recullcclTon thil her Royal Highness dined every day al Court, except one djy that she dined at Ihe Margravine's. To slreuglhen that testimony, and fill up the gaps and chasms, Ihey call Vassali, whose memory at Csrisruhe was so amazingly accurate, that he reirullected every thing which occurred there, thungb be could not tell what took place at iVIuuich or Nureiifberg when he was cro89-ex:imHicd to fads whichorcurred al butli those places. The Learned Counsel here read through that part of Vassati's evidence which related-to wliere Ihe Princess patseil her lime whilst al Carlsruhe, and from the minuteness and disliHrtness (if recolleclioii, hejsaid he could not help ihink-(ug (and when their Lordships looked at the crpsa-examin �-tioi), Ihey would, he was sure, come lb a similar conclusion) that great suspicion must be entertained of his testimony. He could uoi help thinking that he jiad seen the evidence of Harhara Kress, and that lii< memory must have been refreshed on lhat uicisiou more than uuauyolher pari of the jiiurney. Ou his cross-exaujinaliou he could nut recollect one single circomsiaiice of wlicre her Royal Highness dined at Munich or Nuremberg, tier eveii the place lo which ihcy went when they left Nuremberg. When asked how it was lhat he so well recollcclrd; the events at Carlsruhe and hud BO forgoilen those which occurred at Munich, he replied, a man ini[;ht recollect snuie tilings and forgot others, without being able lo say why. He recollected how his Learned Fribnd, Mr. Deuiuan, commented on ihat answer. Alleiid-iiig, ns hedid, lo thai admirable speech which he hail uddrrss-eil to their Lordships, he well'remembered thai be thought nothing was so natural than thai Hie witness should remember occurrences so striking as dining with tliuse exalted per-8iiiia<;es, the Grand Dukeand Ihe Margravine, but uiifurlu-ualety the witness bad totally forgotten dining al Munich with Ihe King of Bavaria, a citcunulance equally lemarU-ulileto him as those be so well recollected, lie slated, that fi^om the Mai gravine's to lbs inn was not above Ihree minutes ride iu a csfriage. Were iheir Lord, i-hips not sniisfied then, that her Royal Highness did re-turn'to the inn between dinner and supper? Hownani and Vassali did not deny il, and'they had the oath of Bor-hara Krc ticw tba.1 slip had banded the chiiilc Ip a jagoiVji bian v^hich his Lvarnett^ Prieud had described asdrcssed'iir gretii.

The olhel* side had ni>t beeo lax in their exertiotts, they had an agent ^t Carlsruhe, who had endeavoured in every way lo procure the atteudance ol the Baron de .Enile^ and would any man believe that he had so far ueglecfiid his duty lo his clUul, as not to have exerted himselflu'tbeutmost to procure all possible inforiiiatioii as lo the life, Conduct, aud characler of this witness, and yet they had failed, and not a homan beint; had lliey been ablelo produce who could say a syllable against il. And here n^aiii he bad lo cii(t*plnin of ihnt Press which was so scattddlously iinil inlam'orisly abused lo the propagaliou of the most malicious slnit^lers upon Ihe characler of this witness, iu reports of speeCies pieteiided or said to have been delivered at'public meeting's, but which he did Aut belitve were ever spvken, eirculniiiig the foulest calumnies respecting her liavingaoH'ered ao iufa-inous punishment at Carlsruhe. Her character was blasted uut of that House, but it remains utitarnisbril within it. Every infamous reporl Iu her discredit had been spread lo excite a feeling iu Ihe public miud against her; every scan-dal.MiB rumour lhat co^ild be iiiveiiled, l� gratify Ihe depraved appetite fur slander of the people, who greedily swallowed any calumny, however gro.s�, that had been circulated for Ihe purpose of blackening her character, and throwing discredit on her testimony. But nol a siugle attempt lia,<l beeo made iu that House, by cTiileiice of any kind, lo impeach Ibe one or invalidale the other. Here then w�8 a witness whose character waa iiuimpeached, and whose credit was unshaken. And how had his Learned Frieuds aliempled IH meet Ibis part of the case? Why their Lordships must hnve laid before ihem a coirespondcuce between Hrtr Barun ri'Eode and a clerk of Mr. Vizard, tu shew lhat altboogb be wished aud was anxious to come over, and lhat be did nol care about the little property he had in Hanover, fur nothing but a frver under which he waa suffering should pre-veot him, which they said was. ouly an excuse, for Ibat no fever of the sort existed-he was restrained from ap|ieariiig here by Ihe fear or the ioflueiirr of some person wbuut it was ngver atlempted lo name, alllioueh.it was ,^l known. and acknbwiedged- that this Government had d �-^~ !n-ltwir power Iu gel him tu come over, and his own Goveramrul had given him Ihe necessary, permission. But he could nut but suspect thai his Le^trued Frieuds had no-wish for the Baron d'Ende. Hi� evidence, lie could out hnl i^nk, would oat have availed them iu this case. His memory, indeed, could not have been more particular than that of Viissali. Again, they liad asked him why he did not call Grimm, a person jipou whose cliaracirr hia Learned Friend, Mr. Brougham, had indulged, in an unfounded and slanderous attack, although he knew that he could not be railed, because he could iglve no evidence on this poiut, f-ir Kress herself had sworn ibut she did not know him, aud be was nol in Ihe inn at the lime. The chararter of Kress then remained unimpeached, she had sworn lo facts within her own knowledge,and which might, if untrue, have been contradicied, but lhat had not been attempted. At Tiirio aa:ither fact had been sworn to by a wjlnesB, and no utlempl made tu impeach his credit. He had BWOin to fads, lo which nu con tradition had been given ; and If Iheir Lordsiiips were not lo believe a witness under such circuinstauccs, llieu no testimuny Ibat could be given would ever avail iu any case. The Learned Gentle-miu then read from the inittnles, the vvidence of Francisco di Rollo, who swore thai when reuiriiirtg from the chamber of Ihe dame dlionneur, whither he had been to carry somethinif, bciweeti nine and ten iu the morning ; he bad to pass llirougli Betgaiiii's bed-room, and saw him come out of the Princess's cbambtr, dressed only iu a loose dressing-gown anil drawers, and go lo his own bed, of which he drew open the curtains, and Ibe bed did not seem tu have btien slept iu; that Bergami ou seeing him, called him a scouinlrel uiid asked what brought hitn there, he immediately went away. This was m fact whirh might have been cuiilradicled ; the dame d'honneur ntighl have been called to -ttisprove il. His Learned Friends had argued must eloquently that Ihe roulradio lion was must material, even ou the least impor.aul circumstances uf a case, and yet here was one proof of those habits which were found tu recur throogh the whole of Ibis case, aud Ihey had not calkd any evidence to conlradict il-He now c:tme to thai part of the case which related tu the lime her Royal Highness was st Trieste. Here his Ltarued Friends thought lhat Ihey bad secured a great triumph- but how ? 'I he fact whii b had been sworn to they did bol allenipl lo refute; they only endeavoured lo produce a con-Iradiction as to the lime her lloyal Highness stopped at Trieste. First, there was the eviilence of Mr. Howuam, who stated thai her Royal Highness arrived ou one day, and weut away on the next; and, to corroborate himself on this point, Mr. Hownam had produced a letter, dated on Ihe 18th of April. But did it follow that, because this letter was dated ,iu thelStli, it was written on the 18tb, and on no other day ? Vassali, loo, swears Ihnt her Royal Highness remained only a day and a half; Vasssli, uf whose exiellent memory the affair at Carlsrulie affords such meinurahle proof. Then, to prop up their evidettec at the close of the case, the Counsel for her iMajesly (Mr, Urougham), with that adroitness for which he had been so r( niarkable tlirough-uul the whole proceedings, had produrcd a foreign newspaper, and before he knew wliethrr it could he received, iu evideiire or not-iiay, knowing well that it could nut be received, had read an exiract from it, which went tu (on-fiiin Ihe statements of Lienleuaiil Huivuaiu and Vaisali. | Was il necessary, ohsevveil the Leai ned Couuael, tu otiVr j any coiniueut upon sorb a puce of no.evidence as ibis?- Why had his Learned l-rieod recourse lo il, if he had | relied so tiruilyas he pretended on the excellent memories of > Vassali and Howuam ? But why, insieBd e.f taking any pains i al all about a matter of such comparative uiiimporlauce us 1 Ihe lengib of tiijie her Royal.Highness slopped at Trieste- j why had they not rather prijdiiced witnesses lo (oiilradict j Cuchi, if he could be contradicted, as Iu the silualioii of the { rooms iu the inn, t|)e doors, and llie haoginics ? The Qu.eii j had doubtless had her emissaries.at T.riesle. as well as eUe-where, and if l|ie fncts^hat Puclii deposed lo were uui.wue, there could have been no difhpulty iu procuraig witnesses to refute thein.
