Yesterday a Special Cottrt wsi'held, for llie,|.tir-po8e, Dtnong others, of takitig'-itilo'conisidcrutioii the prop/iety of pelilioning thei'Kiiig for' the dis-mi-ssal of Minis'ters, and the rettKlj-atjon of her Majesty to all her riahts and <)igiiftfe�'-aS'Qtieeii. The Lord M4yQR opened ({ie'business of thp day, by itiforniitig the Court ift^llfe had wailed on the Qoeeii, accotn|jani�I uy'Uie proper officers iiiid a great niiiiiy initmber/ or'the Corporation, with the Ad'lress of Congratoliittoti 'Whitih harl been voted by the Court; 4h�l-4her JVlnjesly received the Addresratiil h:wl rttoMied' � tiiost gtd-cious Aiiswer, -whici) would be ri�flie term "without deiuy," as being too peretnptory a request to be used by those who wanted to petition the King for a d 8 ni.-;s -ct that the Gnvernnienl wowld give up some tiriiriuul ajjplication to the affairs at home-some fedncliiin of taxes was looketil for^-*.^ some relajtalion from the heuvv burdens of thcwar- the itssthu'tiftn; of some measures for the protection of cur atjriculture nnd coimnercc, and some reforiaJtioii of inridetit�l abui'es. These -reasonable aniripations wtjre lijet by the imposition of fresli taites, and t^ indignant lefusai of. .all ' prayers for the cefo.rtEtaiitju of abuses. .Instead of applying Such-t^rbisdtes as were calculated to appeHaeth�. ly know the true state of his affairs, and the opinions entertained of his Minislers, fioiii the people themselves.   The "only use of petitioning was to give the Monarch iaformatioitwhen^ his attaird were badly admimstered. AVitii Respect to Ih^ dismifsal of Ministers, it was nieedless for bim to'say miieh on that topic, whidr bM been, for it ^cpiUiderable length of time, in ftequeiit<3isetnsi6uin thai'Court; Sonih Ameiica, where tyranny hud exhausted itself, as well as its victim, the people-in ihe face of the country, in opposiiion lo the prayers of the country and the merchants of the metropolis, iMiuisters had done whatever they could to check the infant growth of liberty, and cripple Ihe resources of Brilitii commerce.   They displayed a positive jealousy of all reform nr amelioration whatsoever.    Happily in Naples, Portugal,   and   Spain,   the   people   had baffled their enemies-th�y hid acted sieadily, with no less prudence than resolution, and while shaking otf their yoke, nnd asserting their indepeirdence, they had evinced in their conduct nothing of a revengeful or malicious disfioRitton to their Monarch. They hod surveved Ins conduct wilh a lenient eye ; they attributed the errors of his government to the badnes'of his council"; and had they posue.ssed Ihe right of petitioninij the throne, they tvould have informed the Sovereiirn of his danger in suflicient time to have saved the ne^^es'ity of any viultint or sodden change.   The wantonness, folly, and incapacity of iMinisters proved thera to be totally unfit to administer the affairs of a great Slate.   It was literally impossible for the present Minister.'! to wield the Government of the country with any advantage to the St:\te;    Enough had been done by them before to convince the conntrv of the necessity of their, remosttl ; but,whoever jyti strictly and fairly watched their conduct throoghout the lale infamous proceedings against her Majesty, must be ready   to  acknowledge that such   were  the inroads which they had mjcle on the Constitution, that   there was  no way   left   of  preserving  ihe King and the Constitution, if ihey were not dislodged from their places.   With respect to those who mijjht hesitate from the consideration due to personal motives,   about arldressin^  ihe  King on such an occasion  for a change of Ministers, he would say, tliat if the  Iving did not know of the indignant feehngs entertained by the people to-wartl* the conduct of Ministers in ihe late proceedings, his Majesty must be grossly imposed on. But if the casewere otherwise, and if the measure hid even originated with his Majesty, the Constitution allowed no other restjonsibility than tlnit of .Ministers. It would be no defence to say thai il was his own act ; he willed it, and Ministers could not refuse compliance.   Ministers were equallv responsible as if they hud coinnieiioed  those proceedings without his concurrence or commands.   As to the proceedings against the Queen, the question of her guilt or innocence made no sort of diH'erence in the result.   Had they possessed a perfect belief of her misconduct, having oHered her 50,000/. per annum, and the other terms which accompanied that offer, they plsinly proved thtit there could be no real necessity for going into that inquiry.   The Resolution of the House of Commons upon the occasion, gave a cnrroboraiiun to that inference, because they proved that in their opinion, if all the allegations were founded in truth, that inquiry, so far from being necessary, must prove injarious to ihe Crown and the counlrj' ; bul if this were the case before, what must have been  felt and thought of-.those proceedings, when it was seen that not one respectable witness was brought forward-iiot one respectable witness applied to-but ih.il uiKler the direction of the Milan Commission, all sorts of subornation, perjury, and false swearing, bad. been collected together ?   After that, it must be impossible that any man could supposelhat the country could be governed with sifety by such Ministers for one moment longer.  Proceedings were next set on foot in the House of Peers.   He had frequently stated his opinion that the nature of that measure was repugnant to justice and the Constitution, and lhat the people ought never to submit to the danger of bemg tried und punished by un odious ex post Jtielo law.   He wished the King could have had u view of the proceedings of the day before yesterday (Wednesday).   He v/ould ask, if it was possible, had he seen those transactions, for him to have cotitinued Miniiiters in their placos? Greaterwarmlb ,of feeling had never been displayed, and yet peace and order were strictly preserved, without the assistance of a single soldier.   Such was the order and regularity of ihat day, that they might, if they ])teased, cull the [leuple mob, rabble, radicals; but Ihey plainly evinced that they had read and considered Ihe.proceedings against the Queeu with deep attention-that they had determined to preserve the Constitution from violer.ce< and defend a persecuted woman from the tyranny which was pursuing her. It was very  trtje that not long ago they were thought unable, even in that assembly, to carry Qit their deliberations, except ihejCity *�e suctoniided with soldiers ; but though the assistanceof the troops liad~beeM pressed on Ins Lo d-ship, no soldier Iiid iieen employed.    If Mitiisters were so Weaic iti theji*' Hioid ef puhlic confidence, let them retires' They tjo.uld cot govern i tein were lo be jjersevered in, Iheie . would remain no other chance than revoluiion or a military despotism. As to military despotism, a nation so enlightened never could endure it. Government would be itself subdued, as in Spain unil other glorious inslances, by tlie very e�Ord -wilh which it might seek to oppress the people. ,H b'y lii' expel a foreign tyranny.   He deprecated ii'ii iheir' mcaiures in relation to foreign Po-.';ers, f-'ijecially the support which they had u�e'h>-ly' yivo;, to ih^ Holy Alliance.   Thfir doine.'ilic policy was markeii with waste, their attachment to a standn'g army, and their extension of the means of cor'up; inftu-eiice beyond all former bound-.   Thev h.ui lasierly been solely-occupied in repressing ihe d's'-ontef:t-i of Ihe people excited by their Own 'lti\fQ'y'.:'z\, '.ever, seeking to cure tho^e disconicu's h\| re-riov.ng ihe causes.    The people were gioisly' i be'V.i .when they were accused of wanton dr^coiiteut. Wliat'iti'ie? rest could they have in ffie niere act^^of vomplanit } Ministers were skilUd'io none of i.^'.e  maxin;^ of government but one-lhat of keeping iheu ' gSac-e.
