Gentlemen, I congratulate you most heartily upon Ihe tli>wnrall of that odioii* Bill of Pains and Penalties, the fate of wdicH me are now met to celebrate. What was the object of that unconstila-lioiial' measure.' Not, as-soiiie of its supporters have hypocritically pretentled, to uphold the morals of the people, but nt alt events, and at all hazards, if possible, to ml the King of his wife. And how did I hey jiruccerf.' Not as men who had no ottier object in view than truthuud justice. They rum-tuigeil their iiiUKty records for precedents to sane* lion their iniipiiiy, and they found litem in the pages of the worst periods of our hisloi-y. Gentlemen, in my mind, to s6t the authority of prece-ttenls ai^ainst the dictates of truth and honesty is ijui'e al)>urd ; there is surely wisdom sufficient in liie legislaiors of our own limes, if that wiedom u-.is conirulled by iiiiegrily and true patriotism. 1 iiope miiiiy geiiilemeii will, in the course of the evening, lavoiir the company with their seutimenis, and without detaining yoo longer, 1 shall now jno-ceed to the loa-ta which it is my duty to propose to yon." . .

Such at.� avowal, from .'itrh a quarter, is too iufi'wrlant to be lorjjotieii.

Amidtl all the baseness of tlie ' ite li-aii=aclions, let us not re-fu;ie lo allow niPnt v.-here it is due. It was stated by Lord Cast'eretigh, when the coronation was puc oil, ihiii i.liis was done solely because the necessary preparations ciuld not be *;ut ready by the appointed day. 1 ijiiiik ihiit Lord C. himself was the only person wlio believed this to be the reason, and that the universal conviction is, that the real cau'ff of the pobtponement was, that Minb-ters  tn, lustful, a\)d tyrannical; aad if We look abroad into ijie world, do we discover that the Sovereigns of onr own age are'adorned wiih characters diametrically opposite to so ch description? Shall we ascribe the present favourable issue to the influence of any superior sanctity, or moral feeling, for which our learned itisttlnti ji:s, civi! and ecclrSlustical, are distinguished ?. 1 am afraid not. Heiuy "\'ill. when he was weary of his first wife, applied to the various Universities of Christeiuloiu for tlieir formal saiic-tion to his divorce ; nor was hu disappointed in the reliance which he placed upon those august and very legitimate bodies. And can any one doiiht for a tiioiuem what would have been the fate cf our own generous anil high-spirited Queen, if the decision upon her case had been left to t'ne University of Vienna, to the Colleges of Hanover, or the Beoch of Bishops in London.' Shall we ascribe our success Lo the unsu-pected purify of the present iVIembers cf Adiuinistration - Alas! is there any measure, however arbitrary, i8 llrere any la-'k, iiowever degrading, which they would not niidertoke, Jo please their master, or retain their places I -To what then sli.ill we ascribe the triumph nf principle, on the present otcasion ? It is to the increased ititelliii;encp, and firm iiilegrity of the nation ; 10 that enlii^fhleiied spirit of indr-petidence, to that deiernitlicti enitiily to oppress on, which, in spite of danoers or corruption-, more or Ijiss, pervades everj' rank anil decree inlhe slate, , both Lords and Corauioiis. If we review the. late eventful transactions, one consideration prominenlly forces itself upon our utieii'iun. It is the inigh'y udvantuge tn be" ilerived, in any political sfrnggie, from'Cordial co-o|ieratioii and-union. We havii seen the f/ieiids of liberly, of justice, of decency, uniting heart and hand, and forgetting or disre-gardiug all minor distinct ions . iti political seu'i-rueiit, making common cau-'e togeiher, in the f^reit work which they liad^ to do. SVk have .seen them unanimous-we have seen them triuinphant. The ibciteiueut indeed was sti-ong-invaded laws, and a pt^rsecuted Queci,!.. , Let us, hawever, profit by the lessoii ; and as fir.sis \w.e can do it wtthout coiupro-liiise of principle r7r i)f character, let us be dispo ed to-bold but the right hand of fellowship to every one whose polilicaf object we' believe to be the liberty.and happiness of his county.. A necessiiy may soon arise fm- political unanimity urnotig the friends of justice.. The .present feeling of .the country.is that of satisfaction, at the defeat of iVIi-oistert):in one of the-rnost.shainefuluttempts which -have,disgraced ev.e.iijtheir own administration ; but this feeling may .be ej^pected'to give place to ludig-iiiition, when u whole people .sliall cidl with one vgice-forj punifhoient' on liie < authors and acctiro-plices-in the late mi'quitous proceedings.

We all felt gratijful to him for ihe'jobt tribute of applause which lie bestowed on the Queen, and this imbittered onr disappointment^ when he left her in the lurch. It is said, and I be licve with truth, that he did fender his re*ignaiio'u,_ bnt waj nroed to remain fn the Cabiiief, and Cop-set-.ted to do so on condilion of bting allowed lo abroad ; but Mr. Canning should not have conaer.t-' ed, however reluctantly, to remain a iVJcmber of an Administration whose measures he disavowed. I beg lo be underslond a� sneaking of Mr. Canning solely 83 a public man. When 1 looked forward, a few dnys ago, to this d.iv, it was wlih feelings of unmixed saiisfaciion, bnt within' the last day or two it i.s rumoured that the proio^aiion of Pariiamepi, which lias perliaps beli/re this taken place, is to give time for a reaction in public opinion. This 'ha i\llIli^lers expect, and that in the next two mouilit public enthusiasm will have abated, or changeilits object. I trust that they will find themselves inia-tuken. Seven-aiid-lwenly years ago, an orator, the bl.ize of wlio^e eloquence dazzled ratlier than cou-viiiceil, fiaid, lhat "ihe age of chivalry was gone." Were he now alive, he would find his opiniun eno-neim*, for ten thousand thou��nd vnii es have been raised to (irotecl the cause of iojurej innwceoce. Before ihe late ndjoiirnmeiit of the IJonse of Lord-, it was in contemplation to aiidres-! tlie House of Commons to sluy the odious measure. Tlie fate of the Bill, however, made th.it unnecessary ; bntwe must be on the watch, and if the uncinallUit!on�l attempt is revived under any n'her form, let'u-i hope tli-it petirions will be piesen'td from even' quarter of the kingdom against such new and itujuil proceedings."
