CamJen NeiM, En^^&; .^j^Ct^ tpN iht: T^^ ioj;� ill the Hou�e of Lorrls;' anrf i&elihisrale "ou the ptp^jfiftly |iusition to Ministers than iVJr. Fox had given lo the measures of Mr. Fill. None but ihoae who were rery obstinate wuuld doubt the defeat of Ministers, ami the triumph of the people. The Queen niid ihe public voice were viclorious. He had observed that no attempt had been luade at recrimination ; he was pleased with this circumstance. He understood the political aud coiisiitu-liniial maxim, that the Rioi^ could do no wrong; he submitted to il, he could rejoice at it : no law iinght to reach the King. But they had a Lord Chancellor, who was rich in projjeriy, and doubting in intellect. Ht; did like his Lord.ship's iiriniiess in deciding on the religious merits nf ,the question as t.p the divorce part of the Bill of Fains and PeDallies ; iior coitid he understand ihe "expwiiion of the poHtrcal roaxim, that th� King can do no wrong, given by the Bishop of London, who told ihem that, therefore, the King could not cointnil a folly, much leas a crime. His Reverend Lordship went further still, and declared that in suing for a divorce the purity of ihe party was not necessary to be proved. He knew nothing, nor had he before heard of this inviolability of Kings, as lo the next world as well as this. The public were unable lo conceive what atlvaiitages of hope the dealli-bed could yield to Kings more lhaii to poor men. St. l*eier gave them some reason to doubt the doctrine, for he said, Of a irntli, God is no respecter of persona." He remarked on the ve.'V bare character of llie evidence, wliich had not weight enough to convict a pickpocket, ami must have put a stop lo any process in ihe Court of King's Bench. Con.sidering the immense uieatis of iufluer.ce which ^Imisters could exercise, it was a wonder that lliere was so large a minority as 99 of liie most respeclable Peers upon the third reading of the Bill. All things considered, a minority of GC would tinve been a virtual acquittal of the Queen. He hiped the blaze of joy which shune nlmost nil over the country would illuminate the uiiilerstandinijs of Ministers, and make them repent ami retire. Unless Ministers either reliied, or were driven out, there would be no safety for the Queen or the people. 'Die first Series nf Resolutions was-then put, and carried nnanimously. iMr. MouLQiNO then moved a vote of Thanks to Mr. Alderman Wood, for the devoted and loyal ultacliment which lie had evincetl, and the valuable assisiuiice which he lind yielded lo her Majesty the Queen. 'I'he liesiilution wa^ seronded, and carried with loud acclainuiions, whicli continued for some time alter. Mr; Alderman Wood rose to retnrn thanks. He had lormeriy considered il' right to nbslain from the meeliugs, even of ilie parish in which he lived, but iii the preseiit case he felt it his duly to attend, as he had a dbuble claim for so doing. As a Mo far, us had been said of him tiy the Gentleman who proposed these thanks, as was becoming in an honestt man and an Englishman. He would not go itito circiiinstautial details. He would only observe, lliattliere were sti|l important matters, which might be adduced on the part of the Queen. He was in (jossession of Ihe knowledge of facls of a character most important, upon whicii he could not yet speak. Very material witnesses hud even just iiow arrived; whether their evidence Would he made useful to the Queen or not, depended on her Majesty's legal udviseis. A\l he had looked lor had come to pass. He had before koonn the facts and llie substance of the case which had been produced, and he liad felt certain of the coii-sequencef. He had a thorough knowledge of the bribing and perjury which had been practised long before it was proved; he knew of the original cou- I K�xit.tot tints 4iAngs-'^^ hiiicijEed�i!3bome,'>!�iid HbytbethMie; or btame-'ttC^ hiHaat vit^^prvf* ceiviiiif thewittey ;'ithfey.:l�rf .mivintitt�iee�ti.i�iite fhiit the highest |i�v(on:igrs wens (Uii bilfty tu tMiiDT brilicii. fi^ey fcndw atrWelW HW** wir tiw fdihifefi�d.all ttie wi>tii^-|ii>aw�.-i.(�feor.)-aiTii1eo ther^were firtii�n eleKtive Viienot Scoilaiidi BDci it vtM to lif' recollected no Scotch Ke|i)-�>'eiit9tive Peer (at lea�V Lord Stair lli� oalf on'ii^ tBithiit' his memo^} cdtitd'^be dioieiv except by tbfe' influence of the MiotaterA of ,�he day : and thftaivihent that sutli n i*ribe�j', and baubles, and blue ribbands, had greatinSu-ence; and he s^id, that bribery could reach the highest persons.

He should, therefore, detnii them no longer at present, (i)an to express lii* hearty concurrence in the sentiments of ihe Address, and his readiness to join in presenting it to her Majesty. Mr. Alderman Wood declared his concurrence in the sentiments of the Address, and the Petition which was to be proposed. He then apologised to the meeting for retiring before the latter subject was disCMssed, being obliged lo attend the Com-mittet silting in the City, to prepare for the reception of her Majesty on Wednesday ivent, at Sr. Paul's. On ibis subject he had one word to say. Hi knew that a great many parishes intended lo join in the expressions of observance and respect to her Majeity. But he thought it ailvisable that the Borough of Southwark, if they thought of Iminij the streets on that occasion, should not go outside of Temple^bar, unless some of the young men would wish to mount Iheir horses and tide up to Hyde Park.-hugk.J The worthy Alderman then withdrew, attended by the acclamations of the meeting. Sir R. Wm,soh said, that it always afforded him the greatest satisfaclion lo think that his sentitnents on any public question were in unison with lho.�e of his constituents, and he could assure them that the preseittalion of this congratulatory Address lo her Majesty was (meofthe moat uj^reeable Commands he had ever received from ihem-fAp-plausej-because it was one of these things which afforded her Majesty a comparative security Hgain>i the new insjilis whicIV iniglit be meditated against her, and an allevialiori'of those snffrrings lo v.-hicii she had been exposed for so many years, and aUu because in presenting it he would appear as th� representative of their triumph. Tliey liad heunl what had been said by his worthy friends, .Mr. Moulding and Alderman Wood, us to their opinion of the guilt or innocence of llie Queen. They h:id also read the evidence, and tlie speeches which liad heeu made on the subject in tlie House of Lords ; but he ihonglit it due to her Majesty to state, that ail who had ajiproached near to her per�nn, all who hnd. had oppnrlUniiies of the most intimate acqnu ntance wiili the details of the case, all who had pnisessed the means, as it were, to penetrate into the recesses of her heart, had felt cpnviiiced that the charges against her had been unjust and unfounded. All her Counsel had fully satisfied themselves that ths charges were false, at^d he believed that lie was warranted in saying ilml those of them who had seals in th� Hou>e of Commons, were [irepareil tn declare in their pUcfS, on ilieir honour as met. llial they believed ihe Queen was totally innccent. If such liad not been Ins foiivictioi) all along, al-though he woukl have ofiposed ihe Dill on consti-totioiial grounds-though he would have opposul the crufl [urstcution ot a helpless �oman-still it would not have been becoming in him to take the active part in llie quesiion which he hail taken. While the Qiii'en Was on the Continent he had o'l-wavs expressed bis o|)iniot> iliat if she fell she were innocent, she ought to come to Eng'uiid and ihrow herself on Ihe generou" support of the Eiij;lii'li people. Therefore when lie saw her encniiiiier tt:e persecution which awaited her on lhe�e shorts - wben he saw her gallant resif:uiire to all the nia-chiiialioiis mid power of her enemies, they must believe that his persua!-ion of her iniioceiic^ wje trie determin i'lou of the Queen not to linrden the people  of ihis country for the means of pniciiriiig a-i'.iitible residence, but to insist on rtceivii.g one of tlie roj^l palaces from the Minister-', Mr. Lanqi-EY (whetn wo understood to he a printer) then [iroceeded to addre-iS the Aleelinj; the ioliowiiig effect : - Mr. High Bailiff, we are all in Eogl'iinl -ovr-thinglike turnips-[Laughter] - the Hou.�e of C- in-mens is like a bunch of turnips-the ciiy nf Lo'h'u j IS a lurnip-fitUl-the city of West uitiilf r is a lurn u. ;
