'JAJtES MOKCR^EFP, .'Esq. Was called (tf'the'Chair, which he too){ amidst great -.i^plaiyje.

He opologisetl for being less prepared ihan lie could have wished,-owing to -bis uth^avorations, lo enter upon Ihe. subject with that kupwiedge of it which it required ; but notwithatandrng'lw would endeovonrio explain, with all the ability, iit bis. power, the objects of-the Re-quisiliuuisls. He was fond -of rctireiucul, ami bad seldom leisure from" his other pursnils lo afford the necessary lime . to enable biai to alteud such ineclings wilh eil'i-ct. The present slate of Ihe times, however, was such that to risk personal obloquy was of no coiicrxii wlieh Ihc interest of, the country required uur attention, and it was wilh pleasure he suvv.around bim many persons who, for the first ijme in their lives; had ever aiteiuled such ini-el-ings. When it is considered that within a sliorl period rtie middling and lower orders of, Ihe people have bccnuif, fioni the dissemination of knoivlcdge, most inlelligeiU, and of course hav^ lately .risen . into great political importance, he saw some measures wire indi.spensably necessary lo allay.ibe diBconlcnt which prevailed ; one great cause of which he believed proceeded from the want-of an elective franchise, for which some practical remedy should be appJieil. Owing partly to a waul of this privilege were to be ..scribal the strange nolions which many persons entertained of political reform. He was of opiiiioi^j^/that were meeting* of this kind sometimes held, they would correct thuse ci^ roneous views, and silence the calumnies of those whose policy, and the obvious leudency of wIiosecoDdoct, a^e lo confound the well-meaning with tbeworst eni-mieAuf theSlate, Thepo.licyof Ihe pl-esent Government had bei-u to divide the people into two clasisec, which, he contended, ihe worst cll'ect. If Ihe persons in the lower ranks of life see their ruUrs regardless of ihrir iulercsi, and leturning to their pi'tilious answers nnt even conveyed in courteous Ian. ^uagp, it is then time for Ihe higher ranks to interfere.- There is only one remedy, and it is, that the tipper ranks should al-and forward and support those of the people, who, feeling iheir rights, seek redress in A respectful manner. The Learned Gcntlemau then noticed ihe very orderly and proper behaviour uf the meeting. He referred In the asser-lions, that a number of the pri.sons who signed the requi-sitiuu bad done so for the purpose of gelling into iiower, and that they were hungry expectants of office. The utter falsehood of such obloquies �-as almost loiTobvions lo require refutation; but be-wonld ask. who are ihty who are charged wilh these views? They are those w'ho have been struggliug ag�inst^|j|^r, nud who might have gained it by preferring ^TOfii to principle, ibeir wiilh being lo leave a' land of peoopTinaSJiiei-iy to iheir posterity, as the best boon they coiiW bcsti'W. For ' his own part, be solemnly declared titai he would not accept place or emolument to which he had nut a fair and just claim. He bad no desire Cor oflice. He, and his friends, whom he fonnd around him, bad by their own exertions, raist-d themselves to the situation in which they now were. They lived gaily and merrily, and fur his own part he did not relish the coustraini necessarily attendant upon olFice. He therefore considered Ihe charges brought against himsflf and his friends most calumnious, absurd, and false ; and although he trnslcd Ihe counsels advocated by the party to which he belonged would be adopted, he was not sanguine enough to think that a Whig Adniinislralion .would permanently gain an ascendancy ; but should such be the case, it would soon be seen that someof iheir present opponents would sneak over to Iheir party, and share the favours then iu their possession. ]l had been justly observed, that every one should bear in mind the scope and object of the Requisition. It imported, that it consequence of Ihe flagrant misconduct of Ministers, in their foregii.aud domeslic policy, Ihc country Mtas iiiHiclc'd wiib its present disirtss.- He did not Ihink the stale of the eiinnlry could be much improved wilbont a complete change of the present syslem. It was of liltle consequence wlieiher the accusers .of ihc Queen were ot wer* not brought to punishment. If Iheir measures were not altered. Their waslf/ul and nnprecf-dented expeniliturc of the public money was the root of all the evil which the country t.iifiered, and he would fearlessly assert, that if no remedy be applied, it would be impossible to e.-icape the ruin that threatened it., The Learned GeiitU-man then adverted to the commercial restrictions whicb embarrassed the trade of the county, and commented in strong terms on Ihe stupid adherence to ancient absurdities and exploded maxims of policy, by which Commercial nations-had been alienated, anil been induced lo reMirtwilh interest, on our trade the'Tcstrictiuna we had aimed at theirs. He nlno adverted to the foreign policy of Ihe country, by which hear^ietl lh.-it an indelible auiii had bfcii fixe vd applause.)-.4 mure pernicious and terrible example was by the'e means set to the iVfagisirates of other couiilipB ihan had ever beeu ex. hibiled in any free country; and if that example bad produced its natural effect, this country would have been ere now deluged will) blood ; hut fur.lbe averting this calamity certainly they bad lo thank the prndence and good conduct of the Magistrales of the country, and he copld not bol particularly advert to the conduct uf the Magaslrates of Glasgow, and to the troops employed.iu that district, as shewing an example of forbearance ainl rauderatioii well deserving the higlieat applause.-(//car, hear, hear )- He would allude to another crcunislance iik ihe conduct of Miuisters, and lhal was Ihe.temoving from office of an illustrious and patriotic Nobleman, whu^bad always perforated his duly to hia Sovereign in the most'jiprighl and conscientious manner, merely becnase he had given countenance lo a meeting like the preseht. And who was the iudividoal lliuB removed ? An individuHl wliu had been Ibe early friend of bis Sovereign, and had arrived it Ihe taat atiigeof Kfe without having beriTin the least degree dialinguiahed by sa , ^-nclioalion towards riuleiil couraea.-(f/�ar, hear, hear.)-' The last'subject'^ wiiiijil aliiiile in wai the proceedings agaipsl Ihe^t^iieej), a.ud ihe siidik'n and niiexHuifd^d proiu-sariou ori*a^liamentV*rill h^rglie 'toighl prvbality surpri'S the nteeting by ubnefriiig, thot.he bail liol read^ihe whi>le of the evidence in^e,.^,. tic whs.wot willing ti� defile hi? mind w-iib lhal fnaWof'perjury, B had been interrupted, Ihe whole time of the Session niuuopolized by one single iiiquiry,.Minisit:rs had prorogued ihe ParliamenI without a speech, without even a Court circailar. They had, in foci, turned tail, and shuffled ofl' in the dark, ami nut even a place of reudeivous had been appointed.-{Laughter.)- Never was a mora ludicrous, piliable, and disgusting spectacle exhibited by a routed mob, and nol one uf them could give any rational account of the matter. Those who are bound to say .soinrthing, all* contradict each other. They do not, know what lo do, nor can ibey say what is lo happen. Tb.-re was al presctitj in fact, uo Go-vernineot iu activity. Were ihey, therefore, to snccceil in their petition for Ihe dismissal of Ministers, ihey would obtain not an order for execution, but an order f.jr carrying away and interring the dead. It was njtparent lhal the present6ys(em could not be conlinucd withont the deatruc-lion of public peace or of public liberty. Mr. JeflTrey then proceeded to recommend lenient mea'snrvs, and concluded � wilh proposing a series of Resolutions. ^1r. L. Horner shortly seconded ibe ResolufSiua. ITie first Resplutioii was curried unanimously ; hut after \be second was read^ and the Chairman had put Ibe qu'^s-liuo, whether it �as the will of ihe meeting that it should pass- Dr. AlTOW, of Stockbridge, who was sealed in one of the boxes, vociferated " No!-" iu such a tone as to attrart geueral alleniion. Great coofnsion immediately ensued from Ihe loud diaapprobation wbidk was expressed from all quarters. The Chairm.vN h.iving at length succeeded iu restoring order, suggested that any individual who had any thing to say in opposition to the Resolution, should uiiduubteilly be beard. i On this there was a general cry of" Hear him, hear him '." on which Dr. Alton stated, that in consequence of the liberty allowed him, be begged to express bis dissenl from ihe Rcsdj lutinu now read* A more complete farce was never acted on Ihe stage of the Wbrbl, nor of the Pantheon.-fHerc^^llie hisses aud cries of ** Put him o�f" became'so violent, that the w^eaker'a voice was completely drowned.] The Chairman having restoreil order, expressed his opinion" strongly un the impropriety of in-ferrupiing the speaker, aa the must efTeclual way lo come lo a speedy decision was to bear Ihe individual to on end. . " . Dr. AlTON then resumed-They bad got, be said, a Harlequin and a Merrimaii, and the only thing-necessaty lo complete Ihe farce was a Columbine.-[Here Ibt^peaker's voice was again drowned in a tumullnuus-clamour of dis-approbation.]-However much the apeecb now delivered Cmight haveiiecn disguised, it was delivered for a damnable purpose.-[Here the confusion became greater than, ever, and nothing was heard bul violent hisses, aud loud aud in-ccEsaut cries of *' Out with hini 1'' After order was restored, Mr. J. A. MuRRATr slated, lhal it was unquestionably proper that every individual should be allowed fairiy and freely lo express his sentiments, so long as he observed Ihe rules of good sense; but when any man went the Itnglh of saying that the speech lately heard was for a damnable purpose, be ought nut to be heard.- (Applu'ise ) Mr. R. B. Bt-yrB^ begged that Ibe meeting would allow the Geulleman another trial; the cause which iliey this day advocated needed no support bm what arose from a full and free di.scussion. That Genll'inan bad expressed lii'm-self iulcmperately, but be Irusted be would apologize,-and be allowed to go on. Mr. .MosCKiiiFP expressed himself (o Ihe same effect. Dr. AlTOS then said, he was very sorry he had offended the feelings of /urA laM<ihter and di.iapprohation.) AnothflBtidividual in the boxes then ruse, cnJ said be had a �|W to say on the second Resolution, and lhal was, that i^H^not go far enough ; and he would move, in addition liTTf, that Ihey should pledge Ihemselvea, if ever ihey got into pywer, lo ^ervc wiihuut fee or reward.-f Lautjhtcr. and disitpprobaliun.J The ChaIRMA.V observed, that as the present meeting woul nn;r';- pf-sosi :Mi.l#-r Wicli l-hflrgep.
