A PIJACriCAL TREATISF. on the ordinary Opera-liinis of the Holy Spirit, Svo. 7s.__--^ IV h S TMINS TE U M E E 7 /A G. ^'esterda)- pursliant to the directinns of the Higli Bailif], coiiiiequent on a Ri'ijuisiiion |ireseiilt-'d to him I'oi' tlie purpose, it meetiuu; of the Iiihabilaiits oT this City was Iit'ld for the purpose ofiakioEj '"'^ consideratiori the propriety of addressing the Queen on her recent triumph over iier accusers, and of petitioiiintr the Kiiii^ lor a chunt;-e in l!ie measures of liis Governrnent, the dismissal of his pre.-int Miiiisiers, and ii Reform in Ihe llepreseiitu-tioii of ihe People. The Requisiiioiiisfs had not prepared any propositions to offer io llie consideration of the meetings. The cointiiencement of the meeting was in cniisequei-.ce delayed till some miiitites had elapsed after one o'cloclc. Sonie of the leading ciiizens iiad, however, made finulilionil preparations, which were to be used in case of the other party failing, wliicli theie were j^ood reasons to expect. A coni-raodious plat form was creeled in froiit'of the hotel, at the end uf Kiiig-alreet, which was only to be u-ed in case the Reqiiisilionists shotild not arrive v�ilh their promisetl waooon. The same judicious prepa-r.itionswere tnade with respect to 'lie Addresses and Resolutions. The idiirf members of the Westniiu'ter Committee were in attendjuce at the Rainbow Coifee-house, either to assist ilie Requisitiouisis in tiieir proceedings, or to substitute otlier measures, should they fail to appear. At a little after one o'clock it was formally announced, to ihem that the originators of the meet-iiiif would not be able to appear. The party im-nie-diatply left the cofFee-liouse, and ascended the platform ; thev were accompauied liy the Representatives of Westminiiter, the Hon. Fl. (-J. neunell, Mr. Ellice, of Coventry ; Sir G. Noel, Mr. G. Kniijht, Mr. Gordon, l)r. Gilchrist, nnti other eminent � persons, who were all rapturously hailed by the assembly, as they were recogniseil, on tiieir a|>pe;iraiice. The IIlGll Hailiff read the Requii-ition, and referred them to tlie Geiitlcinen around him for a detail .of llie olijecis of the meetiiit;, .4s the weather was very inclement, and Ihe thin ram was fiiHin^; fast, it was deemed advistdile to shorten the time of the mcetinj; as much as possible, consistently with the carryincj into effect iis several objects. Mr. Gaudn rr, ihcrefore, proposed without pre-f.ice, a sirmt; of Resolutions. Air. Croft Fish secomled them. They were put by the High Bailiff, and carried unanimously. An Address to the Queen was then read by Mr. G.4BDNi='.R, pioposed, seconded, and adol)tcd with acclumalions. A Petition to the King was carried in like muiiner. The following ttre all. the Resolutions, which were ooreed to in the course of the proceeding's:- That this City and Liberty has-for many years endeavoured to call the allenlion of the people at large to the state of the Representation in the Rouse of Commons, and have used every means it possessed to restore to the People their fair and full share in lire Commons House of Pai-liameut. That Io the defective slate of Ihe Represeulation of the People ou^ht to be attributed all Ihe evils, the country endures, whether Commercial, Airi icultnral, or Political, and lhat to the same cause oii F,adopled be signed by the High Bailiff, on bc-half of this' Heeling; and be by him prescn led to her .Majesty. ' That his Grace Ihe Duke of Bfilford, the Earl of Cavtiar-von, Earl Grosvenor, alid Lord Erskine, be requested to present the Pelitiou to his Majesty on in early day. Thai the'Thanks of this Meeii.n; Ire given lo Arthur Morris, Esq. High Bailiff, fur bis impartial conduct in Ihe Chair. Mr. Fish, in seconding the Resolution of Thanks to the Representatives, said, that be cotild not sutler it to pass without iiiakinij; �u observatioii or two upon it. He would not delaiii tlveip long, for if he did it would shew lhat he was iudtfi'ereiit to their health or comfort, especially as they would have nil immediate opportut'iitv ick   brd.s  of   her  atteiidante,   and Irom this ciiarltuble and benign disposition, li-.'d they been i'uniished v.ah many proliered proofs of crimiiiality.    One of her ntlendants was ill of the plague, or was s-,.ip|n)sed to be so: -the Queen visit-e.l this man, who was thought to have been ill of llie plague.   Had this ciienmstance happened with re-Sfieet to any supposed favourite, iiHiead of an ordinary atteiid.int-had the putienl been Count 15er-gaiui,   and  the same   (he   might  justiv call   ii) tiHiugliiless :mj inconsiderate mai,i;naiiuntrY indu<"e<'. her to vi.-it his bt-d-side,  he wished to know what sort of inference Mr. Attornev General would have drawn from that circninstance,''-f LunahieT and applauses. " He is sick ofthepla'^nie."'j-Ignorant, base, and cowardly minds, could contrive lo draw from such an net complete and conclusive proofs of guilt.   As to the King, something might be said on his behalf.    PUiii enough it was lhat ths King was abused, the Queen traduced, and the public dis. gnsted ; and that in consequence of the foul practices of iMinisters the nation would be cruelly burdened with expense.   No one could tell  how fur tale-carriers had influenced the mir.d of the King. Every body knew how plentiful were the abellors of scandal and calumnv in other places. There was never any scarcity of such rharaeters about Courts, wreiches who were wilHfig to fetch and carry rumours to varnish tales, so as to make them the more easily of admission into the willing ears of their employers. IS'n one conld tell how  far Ihe King, his passions once excited, might have been betrayed, and Ins understanding clouded  by false  representations, alihougli the only conviction which  had resulltd from the investigation was, that Ministers deserved to he hanged.-fVerij loiii; and loud applauses.J- Hilt whatever reasons might be urged on belinit of the King, there was no [lalliution for his advisers; Ihey could have no pissioii'i to inisleatl them.    It was their business to have decided will) cool discretion and   sound judgment,   what- whs   most fillins; to be done for the interests of the Kinu;, the Koval   Family,   and   the  country.    Jf lluy averred,   as   they   had   often   very   imprudently and foolishly done before, that they were brought into  the   measure   with   reluctance,  their  guilt was  so much the greater;  becouse they ought on every occasion, and more especially in this case, refuse to act in a m<^asure which they professed their reluctance to adopt.  As it ivas, no act had occurred since the Revolution which so richly deserved impeachment.   Their choice of character in regard to the proceedings against the Queen, lay in the extremes of wickedness or of folly.   Whatever they intended or did,  " be it sport or be it play," it was destructive  lo the  people al large ;  they would  have  lo pay,   at   least  he   supposed so, though he protested against paying one shilling of Ike expenses from the exhausted pockets of the people.-(Llieers.J-The Address to the King, if followed up liy the  voice of the whole couniry, must succeed in its object, it was the first prucii .',-o,  b vthiif.t.-' lo t'..-.' meei-.ng, for lii.- i-i-:; M.'-t'.t-i- ind beep p'---l-.l(l  !l.   r.--,i f..-r  llplll!    i -.tn-i  t>-e,ir- pi; I l;;-r <-.f--,-   ol   ^� P.iH;an!e,;r, he \\c! ,   i pledil. -! x-^nici: li',- i'.i'! vr-'.tiire-.l  I'J he  tir-t  b'.-cin-.i" a e.ni:!iif.!',e  for. p f r'.pvltuise. j-I:,  thi." euu/^- of the ; 'lu  hi niggle 111  w ' icii   11.-; been so zeuh)u!bK- i-iij!
