Cimsciojis of the inlei gri(y of his motives, he had 'come down to do his duty without re;;ardinif any aspersions which might, be tbpotvn upon him, either in that Honse or out of doors.' Liird Soniers said, that with (he exception of a small part of the evidence for the Queen's defence^ he. had heard and atteiidrd carefully (o the whole of the proceeding*. ^Not being rerftaikable quick in (be faculty of hearing at a dis- ' tance;, he had been careful to pliice himself always where he (hen stood, so near to the bar thai he coo Id .heal- every tiling tba( passed. Bu( having heard that evidenre-^ud htre be would observe, "^tbal in case of casual abaence; the minutes being printed (and in his uwo panirular case he had carefully read them over)-he liatl nnderstoud that Noble Lords would be allowed, and ifallowed, certainly called upon to vote. He w,i3 about lo observe tha( he had never a(-(ended any judicial proceeding iri wliich he was more perfecdy convinced of (he gOiU of (he par(y (ban in tbepresenl case: he was convinced that (be illustrious person was guJUy of (he essendal parts of Ihe charges brought agaiiist her. He lamented as murb as any one that such was (he conclusion he bad befen forced to come to; but he was called upon as a Pet*!- of Parliatnent to do his duly, and lie hail diine It upon the most decided feeling and couviclioii. As be had had occasion lo'state'tha'the had not been present upon (lie whole of tbe evldeiti:e; he might perhaps be alluwcd lo B(ate-^' Earl Gtfejr i-oseio order. He said (he ijUcsdon simply was, whether (he Queen's Protest t-hould or should uot be re-(irived aiid entered on their Joiiroals. He conceived, (I'leire-fore; the present was hot a proper limsto discuss Ihb merits of tbe Bill. - The Earl of Laildttrdale lboUgh( his Noble Fciend bihirid 'bim was juslitied in (he observations'he had made. ':. jBart'Grey iBJsplained. fS^^^ISbe^BUTteofTVthOlsaiilra few words, but tvaa^not tsndk>le belo* the bar; "The Earl bf Sheffield said a few words, but froifl the low lone in which (he-Noble Earl spokpj aud the noise below the bar, we could not collect (be purport of what fell from biin,     . Lord Carnarvon said, that an absolute attendance during ihe |ii'oceedings of every day and every hour was necessary ; for tbe absence of an hour during an impurtaut period might have induced Noble Lords to abstain from voting ; but on that subject much bf cour.ie'must be left to indi. vidnal discretion. In (he painful and peculiar situation in Which her Majesty stood, he should think that their Lordships would be desirous to extend to ber Ihe greatest lali. lude and indulgence. Wlieji her Majesty stated that Noble l:�rds tame from the Committee with their minds biassed by a mass of slander, he should, have been belter pleased if the expression had been more accurate, and had alleged thai (hey came uuder sucb cii'cums(aoces as rendered it almost inipossilile for tbe human mind to form an ini. partial judgment. For bimselfj he declared (hat be would hardly have trusted biniself to come forward as an impartial judge had he been previously placed on fliat Committee. ' Hb Confessed, that bad he been of Counsel for ber Majesty, aftei^ all that had been said anddoue, he would not have advised her again applying to iliat House. Witb resperl to ohe- ^oint 'of which her Majesty- complained, he should observe, that if Nqble Lords felt (hemselves at liberty on a proceeding, the character of whirh was marked by theslFiclest adherence tb the forms and principles of justice, lo come forward now and trample under foot one of the most essential prinri|tlrs of justice ; if (here was a vital principle of justice i( was (bis-^tliat Ihe accused and the Judges should Iiear (he OL-al testimony, and that the accused should have (he fdllest opportunity to make hisdefcnce, either by himself Or his Counsel. Yet their were Noble Lords who presumed (o condemn {tfaeir'Queeu without haviitg heardasinglewitnessbu her behalf, and without having heard or being able to read a woid of Ibe defence; and uuiler such rircunistances a Noble Duke was willing (o legislale ei post facto, condemning his Queen for a crime unknown to the law, 1( was with rejr.et that be bad beard a Noble Lord in the evening of an useful - and honourable life declare, that though' he had not beeiy present during the ~whole proceeding, he would accord the severest - possible meaaiire of puoishmeal. The Hotise had been called -over in order that, no Peer should vole who had not atlendsd; but if (bat Noble Lord Could have the right of voting without having heard the de.fence, why should be not have Ibe privilege of ^�utl.ng by pro'xy? On the commencement of the pruteedings (he Noble, and Learned Lbrd on (he Wiiolsack, had said, if he were absen'l (wo or three days, he should conceive himself disqdaiiBed (o vo(e; bu(.(lie Noble:Duke who had not heard a word of (he defence, (bought himself.competent (0 pass (be severest possible sen'ence against her Majesiy. He wished the conduct of (heir Lordships in (his proceeding might soon be forsotten; because, while.it was remembered, (he ctiaracler of their Lordships' House must suBer in theestimatlon of the country. liie-Lord Chancellor said, the only,view of the mailer which he could take was,^ (hat if her Majesty bad thought proper to appear in person before (heir Lordships,, aud to stale any thing in objection to -their proceedinifs, and that Address of her Majesty had contained any remark ou ilie character of'(ha( Hnusf, or on iheroudBcl of any iudividu:il Peec-as a^ Member of it,'Ibey. would, when (hey came (u cuusjderlhe subject of snrb.Address, dismiss all such re. miirks frimi iheir minds; ami therefore, if (hey received,: as lie thought (hey ought, this-paper ns (he Pro(e6t of the Queen, it ought' tb be .received-in such a manner as wunid mark iheir sense of the impropriety of any ma((er wbichaii. pearedin ii reflecling'dnHhc charactei-of the House, or its Members.-(' Htari'^tom the Duke o/CiowBe*.)-With ' respect to the Observatious oh the voting by proxy, thai was a .ma(ferentireiyin,lhedisrretiou of any Noble Lord upoiiaiiy ^Bill^thongh ina'cas&ufimprMhmeiil (liry could not'sb.vole.

He ihoughl Ihe House had a right lo except to anv (inrt of the tonleots, on the ground of a parly in that ciliin-tion having uo rijllt to remark on what passed in tlnir Lordships' House. Rot if it were meant to except agamsl Ihe tilntlcrof this Protest, on Ihe ground of its being uojiisl in its remarks, he most dissent from ihatexceptioil, for heinu'-t siiy, that he considered those remarks to be most jost. Thuugli (he Nol*le l.ords who had lieard only a part of Ihe proceedings had Ihooght it consistent with their doty to vule On (he question, as they acted conscientiously in their own opinions, he perhaps had no riifbt lo find I";)u4t: with their doing so. But when the House had drclaieit (hat it Would he highly improper for any Pee,- lo vole wbn was not eoiisiiiotly present, he thought it straoge that any Noble Lord io that situation shoold think of volin','. He could oot help joining also with his Noble Frieoil ii> coogralolatiog Ihe Noble Duke upon the consistency of his objections to au ex poll facto Inw with his objections lo Ibis Protest against an �i post facto law, ami his coutendiii;^ for the right of voting by proxy ou sorb a liw. The reniarks dpfln (be Secret Coramillce he ihonglit were taken by the Noble Lord on (he cross bench ill loo strong a light. He onderstood ihem only as pointing t.> the danger of persons in such a siluatiou being biassed in Iheir judgment by opinions which (hey had previously formed. Lord Redesdalc in a tew words contended for (he riirhc of Ihe Nolile Lords'who had been on the Commiilee voiiir^ on the Bill; and remaiked on the improper chiiracter uc' theProtist; Tile Lord Chancellor's amendment was then put, ami carried wiihoiii � division. Lord Darnley said, that he should contentj himself at the present mooient with protesting most solemnly a^uiosl Ibis as he had every other part of this unfortunate proceedtiii;. He felt tha*; afler the loog discussigu which had i;ikeii placr; thai if be were lo aigue against it at Ibis m -meiil, it would not innuence Iheir^ Lorilships from pru-ctediiig ill the measure, sfill he felt it his duly to say, tba( he could not conceive they would ultimately permit this Bill (ll pass into a law. I'lie only eviilence that (heir Lordships could have gnne on, would have been eonclHsiv., irresistible^and niitouched evidence. Their Lordships iver^ all open to the iofirmiliesof human nature, and he would only desire them to look at the names recorded on Ihe division cf yesterday, and ask themselves whether it was possible, from tbe known .in6rmi(ie8 of human nature, lint ihe greatcit proportion of ihese Noble Lords who had constitQted that Majority could come into (his proceeding with a proper feeling towards the Accused, He w�uld say thai i( was nl-(erly impossible that (bat could be (be case. A large propor-(iou of tb'a( nisjority was constituted by the accusers (hem-selves-of (hose who were in immediate dependanre on them, it was constituted by a larg,e proportion of per-ons who had received fjvoursfroni the Crown. There was one Ihin^ which he iroiild mention, bi'cnuselie considered it of ioi-porlauce : It wan this, that (en junior Barons bad said, '^Coii-(en(," aud 18 senior Barons had said " Non-Conlent." He' bad said so much only wi(h rifererice to the infirmities I'f human nature.
