I..afly Charlotte , Lindsay afterwards quitted ihb service ofher Koyal Highness, and when asked if she had never stated that it was a relief to her mind that she had resolved on qnilting her Royal Highnes.i, she did not d^ny that such conversation bad passed. When asked if she did not quit her Royal Highness'sservicein consequence of thedegfiadingreports wliirh were in cirruliition, she answered precisely in the same manner. When ashed if she bad not stated that if she had not been drsirous of assistin^g a particular individual, that she should have quitted' her Royal Highness long before, she had answered distinctly in Ihe affiim:itivp.-(" Bcod read")-The words of tbe witness were-" It is very possible I might have made use of those woi-ds, but I have no distinct recbllerlion of what time I was induced to reniiain by the desire, of assisting a, particular individual."

But the opinion of the L il Highness to sit down at table with her courier. The splendid uuiform which'be'wore gave it a colour of justificairun. He (llie Solicitor General) statrd the fact; and It was for their Ldrdsbipa to tay, what "reliance. they could place on Ihe sentiment,,or feeliog of Mr. Huwnam, as to what was graceful or proper cundgct "in a Princess of Wales.- There were two other .aingnlar witnesses, Vassali and Olivieri, holb baving bi-pii soldiers in the army of Bonaparte: Ihpy were called tu speak lo ihe propriety of conduct of her Royal Highness towards Bergami, and of Bergami towards his Royal Mistress. What an extraor-dinary arlectioo of witnesses 10 speak to that part of the case! He thought bis Learned Friends wqnid'have , iietter coosulled the interests of their.CIient if they had cblkd 110 .witnesses al all, and left the hlgli slatipn andde-stfenlprihe Princess of Waleslobavestnod wiihotit'RtiiEBiiidi Bnt ib descend so low as to take a cbaracjni�./^h^iuY:assa| KtJS*�rtb��"�iere n�^ befure for tbeitBiJl j fcni that �acb an cxainibiitibji �i>ttlil to be such, were of Ihe most trilling nature. He slateil thfe dining at Genoa, and afterwards al- varions other places. But even admitting it to be true, as a.isumedon the other side, which it most certainly was not, that it bad been proved they did not dine togetbrr there, then indeed there would hi a contradiction to his lestunony, but not of material import. For it was admitted on the other side that Ihey dined tpgelber afterwards-and it was proved tbat they breakfasted togelher at Genoa. Mr. Hownain too admitted that her Royal Highness had several times dined in private at Genoa, B'lid it was not an imprdbable inferenre" that on someone of those occasions Bergami bad dnied with her. But he did ilot think it was at all necessary for them lo take that ground of explanat'fon. That they did dine together was a fact established beybtid ihe possibilily of doubt; and ivhether this slate of intimacy brgan at Genoa, or afterwards, was a mattvr of no mniuent. It must he evident that Majocchi could have no motive for making any mistatpment as to tbe time, ,It was loo^moch to infer, IVom so trifling a discrepancy, tbat he had an iotentido mT det'eiring their Lordships. He was willing to allow-thai Majocchi might, in this particular, have made a mistake ; bpl, stkrely, it was Ibb miicb to draw from this a conclusion to the prrjudrceof bis'testimony in geoesal. Again, it iras said that he had sworo that IheTe was a secret staircase communicating between the rooms of her Royal Highness aud Bergami, %hen in fact it was only a back staircase communicating} will) other bparlmenii].

Il ivas, moreovei-, inHterij) to Consi'dcr the situation in which the witness Cnrrioatoo hiinseYr f'tands-, who is called to impeach the tpsli-ra.inyuf Majocchi.

Beresford. He was askril, " Whether be had served in aay other ship before the ^'ciic//eM this lie answered ** No." And, after a feiV other qup.ilions had been put, l.-c was again aske*!, ** Then am \ lo nnderstanil that you wir�r never before iu his Majesty's �ieivice?''-~and lo ibis alau he answered, * No." Upun being afierwards discovered lo ha^tf been in other diip-i, andasked-bow li*j rencoiVcilcd tiiat fact with thos9 aPsWcrs, he said he bid nnderstonrt the qi'iestiona loreltr'to bishavingbeen lo olber ships andrr thi.-cummand ef Sir!fohn Beresford; but be (the Soticilor-Ocoecal) would asii, if any man would believe he coQId possibly so have understood-ami, if he had not, then what was.Ihe cbaracler ot' lira "testi'muny ? Again, he had slated that Sir Juliii UcreS^ fiirdseul for him, and told him he was going to put hini ou . the quarter-deck, and that be had rpplied he did iiut wish jij as he had neither friends nor money lu support the rank of art oflicer. Such a cunversAlion as that must have inipris<ed itself strongly 00 the icind of any man. Now S.r JpUa Beveaf,)rd, on being asked if he lecollcrtcd sucli a (.puirer-ialiolsv'replied, ',' hejievtrlold me arty �(ich ihing; aud ufirf I'Wtifew of bis haying consented lo become Ih;; servant uf Sir WilliamGell, it'was not likely 1 should wish to mahe hurt an otiicer." Their Lordships were lo undersland frnra this that there never bad been any intention to r,ite hi�i as midsbipman, except for tlie pur-pose of enabling him to get his discharge. Sir Jolin Oeresfoitl further added, that " he had nevtr done any d'ti y on the quarter deck except as .a quarterigaster." W..B a witness who had, as the Liariud Gentleman infeirrd, not only cuiitradicled himself, but been cuntradicted by a witness of such respectability as Sir J. Bercsfnrd, lo be rr� garded when called to impeach the crer'ibilily of ai.olher man? He did not mean to deny llmt Sir John Beiesfoid had given, him a good-tharacles-, but he would s.ij ih.t his conduct as a witness on this occasion had & ea snch as to deprive his testiilniiny of all title to ccedit. But Iheir Lordships wuold'.rcninik furlh<r, that at the co.i-versalion alluded to, a ibiid person,of Ihe name of I'laiicistiy Sana had beeo staled to be presenl ' Why was not this person callctf to confirm the statement of Cnrringlou ? Where there tvas a bilaiice of Uslimoiij-, and a confliti lio-tween the evidence of two witnesses, the i.ssue might be lift lo he determined by olhrr circumstances ; but Ircrr Carriog-tup had been, conlradictpd by another wit-tiess, and 11 liecame neeessary l'� give addiliniial cuiifirmatiun 10 his ler.timony. P^allci8co Sana ought therefore to b.ive been called. He Wished that tbat person.had heen placed at ihe liai ; he should have been delighted by the presence ol that man as a wilness. He was iu town-he had been seen by Carrin<tun at tbe office of Mr. Vizard. Did nol then Ihe withholdirg of this wiiness, when he could so easily be produced, shew n conviction oil the part of her Majesty's aijvi.-.ers lhat Cae-riugloii's statement was uiilrue and could not be supported,i' A great deal, too, had been said of ihe frequent rep,etilion by Majocchi of his nut rcinembrring cii cnmsiances to which he was qucsiioned. But if .Majocrbi had his Xon mi ricordo, the Hitoes5e�on tbe other side had their ft'^'n *e mi surpeni ; and even the English phrase, " I f memory in more material instances hid been sj., in* quent ? Il was by no means his wish lo speak, harably or dijrespcclfully oJ the persons to whom be alludi-d but when such people were found not to recollect facts of. a grave and important nature, where was Ihe uoodfir, what was lliere extraordinary in the circuontance vf 5I^PCGl.l not remembering things Irifiiag in themselves,and nut m-,iie-rialin the case? He wished not lo he undei stood as custiu; any reflection, or insinuating any thing diicrtditulileMo the character or evidence of Lady Charlolte Liudeay, or uU any other of the witnesses of cjiaracter (o whom he a|.
