If any Peer doubled'the decision,.a division must be galled for, as usual. The Order of the Day was then'read fur the second read, ine of jbeBill of Pains and Penaltres against her Majesty. The Lord CQANeeLLOR rose and said, that the only qu^B. lion lo which their LordiJiips could for the present apply their attention was, whether or not the Bill before' them should be read a second time. In the ordinary roilrse pursued on Bills in some-respects like to lhat before the House, he meant Divorce Bills, the ordinary course was, alter hearing all the allegations iu support of, and all the testimony against the Bill,f.jr the person who might have the honour to fill his station in the House to reiire from the Woolsack, and according to Ihe best of bis ability and judgment set forth his opinion, and the grounds upon wbicli he entertained it. If be should be of opinion that the.facta prudii'ced'in evidence had proved the charges contained iplhe Bill, he had to intimate lhat opinion to the House, and if any diiference remained between his opinion and that of any part (if ihe House, a debate would ensu'y aud the question would lie determined" by a division of the 'House;' if nodil^ereuce of opinion re-inaiued, then the Bill would he read a second.time as matter of course. It was usual to postpone the preamble of Bills, particularly ii> Ibe case of Bills where the proof of the preamble bad laken place elsewhere, before the inlrodncliou of .the Bill into Parliament. It was not always dune in a Bill of Paius aud Peuallies, the mailer of charge being tried before the House. Their Lordships might find occasion in many instances to amend the preamble. In some it might he deemed expedient lo call for fresh evidence with respect to the preamble, before pro. ceeding to deliberate on the enactment. But this was rarely done-it ought never to be done, except wilh a view lo miligatiug thh|eh such Bills could ahine supply really relief.- No;pf Irtokihg back to the Revolution, aud he would eo HOp^firrlii'-r back than the.Revoluiion : since that peri.i.l, Billiiitr'ains and Penalties bad been enacied over ami ufej. :igain, and no such occasion of state difficolly appnrrj.-.;i a*tbe cause for enacting any one of ihem. He htr'j ventured to stale in a former stage of these proceedings, that a Bill of Paios aud Penalties, provided the proceedings were properly conducted, was mure favourable, he did nut say more cuustitutruual, but mure favourable to the accused llian proceeding by impeachment. By conducting the proceedings properly, he meant it the witnesses were examined accordinglo the ordinary rules of evidence, and the ordinary rules of law were to govern the ' decision. By impeachment the House of Commons were C(iinpclled to proceed expar/e. One.vole might decide the question, and that vole might be given in error- Besides, a Bill must fulluw an impeachment. Did they not run the risk of invulviDg the House of Commons in conlrudiction, by furcine; them (eillier on a Bill arisingfruni impeacbinent, or on a Bill origiu^tliig with that House, a motion for impeachment having failed inJhe Lower House) to -examine eviileiice On both sides, they (Ihe Hiuse of Commons) having come to a decision by hearing the evidence^pf only one side ? 'I here had been other complaints made, such us the want of a specificatiou of charges and of a list of wiCuciseg. He mentioned theseoiily to shew that where (he accused had suffered inconvenience ui disadvantage by the course of prtj-ceedlng, they ought, to havtf ibe adyji^tBge of that con-T�ur�-fiid^iw^lriSai^^ ife-1 accused by some parties, who liad acted mdireclty iu su()pori of the.Bill. .Of tliat circumstance the acciisid ought lo have thefull bi-nefit, not only as affecting Iheevideitce of �ilnesses to whom such curi-upt applic^itioiis had beeii' brought home, * btit if any reasonable suspicion of the same kind could [le cn. tertained as to witnesses, us lo whom suburiiatiun bad not been proved, the accused must Jiave Ibe full advantage of those suspicions.   He would now slate the grouHila of his opinion. Laying aside all ihe suspirions or loiuteil evidfucc, the quexliou which he h'ad put to himself was, whether or not upon lhat part of Ihe testimony for Ihe Bill which wa..i indisputable,   combined   wiih^siich    evidence    as   IkiiI been  adduced on the defence, and also   wilh   Ihe   w;iiii of evidence iu the rlefmre-did all this teslimouy, taken logelhe'r, confirm the preamble  of ihe  Bill  or uol ?- I'he course he ahnuld lake was of Ihis nature.   He apprehended that looking not at one or two circumstances provtd, but lookine lo the whole of the f ids proved by witiiei-ses above alt su�piciou-if their lA>rdships then thought it did appear, and he was sorry to say it,' hut from the evidence he could not form any other conclusion than thai there had het-ii' an adulterous inteicoursc.   Wilh respect to contradielion of evidence, "be thought lhat frequently more of effect was given lo it jn the summing up of the Judges than it deserved.   It often happened thai a circumstance was proved as a fart, on a trial, which it was impossible for the parly to contradict, merely because being fulse, he iiiiglit rcqsouahly suppose it could not be proved ; so where an individiiitl speaks lu f.icts where no oilier person was present, conlrHdiciion was impossible.   But \vlien f-icts were spoken lo as liH^Tpening iu the presence of many individuals, and they cuulil prove lie was perjured, the want of coniradictiou their beea'me of the greatest imporlaoce; and no one had a right to imagine Ihe wilness was speukin^ falsely where such a number of persons might contradict him, fur if they did not coiilradici liim, then his statement might be considered as negatively and tacitly allowed by them to he true.   He would take leave to lay out of the case all  that  Majocchi and  Demont bad deposed : he might allow there were somecoutrndictious or many coulratliciious in their testimony, if their Lord-sjiips pleased, nut liiat he meant lo say that both might nut have spoken Ihe truth.   But laying out of their consi. deration ihe whole of ilieir testimony, their Lordships would please to Irnvet wilh .him on buaid liie polacie.. Who went with her Royal Highness on that occasion ?    Lieut. I'lyun, Hieronymua, Camera, the Countess Oldi, and young Austin. Could their Lordships" doubt that if ihe question Ih u trying were merely this-" Did Berg.imiaiid her .Majesty slerp under llie lent or awning on I^oard the pulacre?" could any m in doubt if that were the only issue, what would be the effect of iht*evidence wliirh had been produced, a"nd of that which ft had not, but which might have been brought forward.   He had forgotten to mention Lieutenant Howiiam'a nanieamon^ the persons who accompanied her M"i\jesly on lhat occasion.   In the first plare, let ihem look to the evidence of Pelazzo and the Copiam.   He knew of no observation lhat had been made on ilie evidence of those two persons, excepting Ihe circumstance of ihe piymenl.   "Some Nobl|; Lord says, ' mtire than thai.'   I shall be glad to have point, ed out lo me where that more is.   At present 1 form my opioion on what appears lo me; if hereafter more should appear, there will be siifKcieiil opportunities for nic lo correct my opinion."   Thc^Noble and Learned Lord ihen cuii-linued and said, lhat wilh respect lo Ihe payment oflliuse two witnesses, a thing which he thought of lilile or no consequence, excepting IbaJ  there appeared nolhiiigto obaerve iipon, he saw not how it could be otherwise, as there was no compulsory pi-ocess to  bring  foreign  witnesses  to   this country.     Persons   within their jurisdiction they miijht compel,and those were paid for loss of lime, with Iheexcepliou of lawyers and physicians ; but foreign witnesses could not bff brought here wiihoul paying ibcnv for tbeir loss of lime. He would suppose for a moment that Ihe Caplain alid'male had proved the fict that her IVlajesl.y and Brrgami slept under lhat tent, and looking lo the evidence of Flyno and Hownam, and to the reluctant maiitter in which ihey gave it, he thought that was strong confirmatory evidence.    It still might be proved that they were not sleeping together by the evidence of every person he had named.   The Countess Oldi, Ihe maid servants, and all Ihe persons who slept below, might have been called, and he would ask if it were "possible irrtt to have bad evidence of it ? Thus it being proved thalthe parties had slept there, from lhat and olbir cir. cumsiances he tliooght an adultrruus intercourse must have had place.    Their Lordships "would keep in recollection Ihe fact of the contiguity of the beds in every place-the familiarities at different places-and all the circumstances of Ihe elevation of Bergaoii, and not only Beigami, but every other individual ofhis famijy-and the iinporlant circumstance of Ihe inlrodoclion   of the CouiiIcrs Olili, without any communication to the family,  that she was Ihe sister of Bergami.   Had she been a sirauger, tbe-inler-position of ber chamber between her Majesty's room and^ Befg^'ami's, would have been a strong pro.of of innocence,i but introduced as she hud been, iheir Lordships could at least draw no inference of innocence from that circumstance, of Ihe iiiteimediate position of her chamber,' relative lo Ihe Princess's and Bergami's.   What then was proved on board thepolacre?   Bargiolo, al page 117, slated what li.ippened on the outer voyage, and he bad stated a circumstance which had not received any contradielion,'he meant the fact of Bergami carrying his bed lo where he  could see her Majesty.   He begged their. Lordships particular allen-tion to Lieatenaut Flynn's evidence.   He was the pcrsun who bad the arrangement of Ihe beds on Ihe outer voyage. He would beg their Lordships to put this question lo tliem-pelves, bow thai man, who gave such minute evidence as to the reposing places on the outward voyage, should yet know next to nothing ou the voyage homewartis? Did not that confirm the fact, that the parlies did sleep under that tent? The same observation applied to Huwnam's evidence.  Auollicr observation  was,  that if  Ihe  necessity  existed for the arrangement, the   circumstance mu^it   be  well   known. How  happened it then that they were under  such difficulty pf stating the mere circumstance?.   The circumstance  of the  giin and   the'sitting on   the bench  bad uol been coutradicled, and unless be had been mistaken in all the divorce cases which bad^ ever come before him, and unfortunately h'ta experience of Ibem in that Hobse tvas not limited, such familiarities as those on the deck,, takefl wilh due rpfereace to the .lime and place, were proofs uf what "'passed below, 'aiid tjiie familiarities should be of such a '.iiature'that it fplAiii liisii cdiild not biit'iiifer^that the .'criiiic-of nduliery had' talcen place. ; Bai'giolo'says he "wis. ordered ^'clbieithe.feot by - Siliiavini    iiow' that =igi Srbiavini  was   not  called,  aiid  he  therefore  coiifirni-il by bis absence .tlie ividenre of nargiiil"    The uicfssily of the iirrangcrfienl f.ir ilic sleSpiiig iindc'r lli'e lent did nhl extend lo closing it in the day lime,   If Ihire were lh� ilccCKHity for ihe iiight arrniigeiiieni,-ivhat iiecei.sily exisieil for shultiug the parties up iu the day time ?   lie �oolil not lake lip iHeir Lordihips' tune by refirring In iill lliecirruni-stanties whirli took, place on bonid tiie pol.irre, hut n-nolii draw tli'ir ailentiou lo the circumstance, Ih.it it "a'i stnie.l there was a coirininnicatiiin fhmi the awniiig lii the aparl-nients below.   On that point Ihey iroiild look to the e,vii dence of Ihe Captain { but open or slii:% why were ' not the persona called w.lnjivrre sleeping tiiere ?   fi Sas said iheiS nerves were loo weak f that was a n-asuii on � hirh iheir L(ird: ships would form ^Ih^ir own jiidgninil.   One circunisi.,oce laken by itself was  uoiliing,  but in cases like   that   it wna the combination  of cireiiiiisl.iiiees   I.i   which  Iheir Lordships wood look. Tiiat rffleriiou brougki him to 'lesirii Iheir Lordships  would look al ili..- case at Amn.    What Could possibly  hai-e induced a person in a lent cnClosifil Jiy anolher lent, in which outer lent, on one side, slept Theodore, aud on the other side Carlini (nut rilled), what possible occasinn could there be'for jtirgnini sleeping within the inner tent ?   There were no sijualls of >�ind lobe drnidet! there, no heeliug.of the ship lo he .ippi ;,   ami    geltini;   to  the he.iil of his profe.sion.    But here "as an  iiiilividii.il experiencing within two monihs a ereat promotion, ami not only Ihnt indiviilnni, but every person cijiineclcil with hini. It W.1s said he eiileied the service of her  Majesly nmler expectations or promises of pioinolion.  Bui whal said the evidence of Mr. Craven ?-"That he had hope.^ of jirorijolioil if Ihe occasion occurred."   .Sir Wm. Gell said, he w.is to be giadually advan�-d-hut he was advance-!, not griidually, but within two nioiiih.), and all liia fi-.inily rereirt-d aLso- one individual of it only was exeilid.pd, and  t.'mt in^lividual was the   wife of  Hergaini-the  inCerencc to   be  drawn from that be would leave to their Lor.lships' iinaeinaiion. There were eight or nine witnesses, wiihmit -my impiilalioti on Iheir character, who spoke to fainili^rilies, wiiieh, though not, as be had said before, proiils of adultery, yet, when c.iti-iierted wiih oIlKr circuinstauces, and acconip-inieil wilh lim-; and iipporluuily. did certainly e�lahlish full and sufficient ground for the inference.     It hail b-.-en askcil. and vei y prr-tiiu-iitly R^ked, why Bergami liiin-.eir had ni.t he-'ii piOilucedi ami to (his it had been said on the other sid,-, Ihit lie ci�il 1 liul be called.    But'he would say, lhat he ronid iiml iniffiiL have b'-eti called, as iu the case which had been .-illiiiieil lo. Major Cooke was called; and there wne on llirir Lorilsiiip>' Jiiiirnals many cases in which piirtiirs similarly siluaied h.iil been produced to disprove an adulltrHus inlercouise ; anil in the present case, the silnaiiou of Ihe parly "as such, that f.om Ihe manner in which he had been elevated and piomolerf, the mode in which his family had been Irealed, the honour*-and rewards which had been heaped on him, he most bSvir felt an inducerornt far greater, ih-iu any oiher man couKl have, to come and speak Ihe t.nth, if be Could  thereby clear from this charge the character of llie person who bad been so profuse in her favours towards him. Hewoiild say nothing about Ihe case of the jiurney In Seiiegaglia ; htcaune, although it was impos�iible to reconcile ihe lestimniiy of Carlo i^urli and lhat of Vasiali wilh each other, yet there were rir-" ciirtislances couiiccied with it, which, according lo Ibe rulis which influenced him in deciding iipnii evidiuce, reudeied it impossible not to r'ject this pari of Ihe ca�e.   rlie sanifi with the Trieste case ; because, althoit^li the particular circumstances deposed lo by Ciiehi were not in Ihemielves disproved by olher'lesltii'Oiiy, yi t v^'heii he found lh.it Coclli extemled over the  periiul of six  days, what, if it diii lake place, must have been confined to a  day and half, thttt being the  whole of liie lime  her  Royal   llighiiesa was at-Triesie, he could not receive any fact so proved, which rested on the evidenec of Ciichi ahnie.   The case al Charnilz appeared  to   him   to   be suffiriciilly   m-ade out   by   the  testimony of a witness   (Drmoul),   whom, as ftir iis Ihe manner of giving her testimony went, tkCre was every reason to credit.   .She spoke positively and  uu-liesitaliiigly lo facts, lo whirh no contradiction  had been given, except in the latter part of Vassali's evidence.   But he did not pretend tnjrive any account of her Royal Highness bring dressed.   He came now lo notice the orcurrei.ces at Catania.   And he believed their Lorilship^ would find it extremely difficult not lo approach at leiisl to the belief thut somelhingeriniin^l did pass at Catania. Altendiiiii: to Ihe evidence on Ibis pari of the case, attending to Ihe circiimslau-ces which had been sworn to have occurred al lhal place, he had no hesiialion ih slating it lo he his belitf that ndullery had been romnittled there. The /acfhad not been proved, the  , fact could not be seen, but the nrcumslaiires proved were such as, accnriii'ng to the roles of law in similar cases, established Ihe inference,.and were laken to be evidence of the existence of the fact.   One word more he had lo ofier lo Iheir Lordships, by way of observation on the aitcnipts lo influence their decision io this  case,  by other oijtiv.-.s than those which ought to guide it.    As to any thing which might have been  said  out  of doois,   he .should lake   no   nntiee "of   it,  for he   was   not   supposed lo hear  il,  hul   he  woirtd   say  he was  not  to  be detfr-rcd from   acting according to what he conceived tj be his duty,  by any clamour that might he raised, or aujr inipulalion whalever lhat might be thrown upon him.   Iu Ihe speech of Ihe CouiiHf I at Ihiir bar, something h--itl been thrown out   like a threat upon  their l.oriljhips -(*/cnr, hear, hear.J-lhal, he was confident, wonld not he suffered ill any di-gree lo afl'cct their decision.-(Hear, /itar, hear.J - But he niunl say that addresses of Ih-rft nature to a CuiirC of Justice could not be held eonsislent wilh the dignity of its  proeeediii^s.-cHoar, hear, hear J-Their  Lordshipi might   be  called  on   to give judgmeni   in matters .-vf-feeling the lives, the liberty, and   the property of any man in Ihe kingdom, but they would not be worthy of the high trust with   which   Ihey were   invested,   unless in their judicial conduct  they   mlhered   to' the pgeeept, *' Be just, and fear not,"     He knew the people of this country-he knew tln-y justly valued  their Coiistitntion, their  laws, and their liberties, and llmt they had-a high regard for the principles of justice; and if iheir Lordships biilj performed Iheir duly avrnrdiiig to ifiose principle-, however they might for a time be assiiled by clainnor ami inveclive, the people would at last do Iheir duty towmclii " them.
