Mr. Whit*READ presented at the Bar the Ad. ditional Article of Impeachment, voted by tiie Com-mons, against Henry Viscoynt Melvilia, The Commons having retired, ^ Lord AUCKLAND said, that at present he would make no observations on the Article }�f Impeach, mentnow presented, bur would move that it be referred to the Coiomitteeappoiptt'd to search the Journals for, precedents of Impeachment, The Declaratory Bill was read a stiCQnd tioie, and ordered to be committed, DEBTOR'S PETITfON. Lord HOLLAND presented a Petition from the Debtors confined in the King's Bench prison, pray, ing relief. His Lordship oh!>erved^ that he would at present make no other motion, than that it should He on'the table for the perusal oL.thelr Lordships. The Earl of MOIR A stated, that both himself and their Lordships, who iiad two trials before them, were too much occujaed at present to attend to the alteration in the law re$;xdling debt, which he had formerly proposed. His opinion was still the same en thatsubjeft. His avocations would not allow hint tq bring in an Insolvent Billj-but if any other Noble Lord should do �o, it should luve his wartnest support. The LORD CHANCELLOR observed, that in th^ course ef Iiis Experience many melancholy cases of ilistress had fallen under hb observation. He too had his* avocations, whlph were both numerous anx} important. He could not promise at present to pay much attention to the subject \ on another opi)ortu. nity he would give it all the consideration he coiild.' Should an Insolvent Bill Vie intrddoced^he would say thus much, that he would jpve it his most attentive 'consideration. Several private Bills werie passed; and thourLotd* ips adjourned till to-iBoriow. raft, and several orher M-,."mb';r.s; and being returned, reported to the House., jhat h? had preseiued the same, pursu nt to order of th.^ House. ELECTIONS. Mr. TIERNEY, pursuant to the nattcc he hai f.-rmt;rly given, rbsft: to bring forward his motio.t f �r leave to bring in a bill to expbin and Tender m tc effi'chirfl, an AA passed in the reign of Wiilia.Ti the Third, for lessening the excessive cx^nces to Can� didates at eleiflions for Menf'.iers to serve in Parliament. Every Gentle.Tiao with whom-he had conversed on the subjert, agreed with him on the ncces*. sity of some mea.yjre for giving effefl to an Ad of Parliament, which had been found, by uniform expe. ric'ice, to fall in m'.^st cases greaijy .short of the object it it vovel; but many were of opinion the at. . tempt \�ouKl be atieiTded with difficulties scarcely sjrmT.intable. It was by no means his intentiotl to give to r'tat A'S �oy nfw coftMrUvtion to the ex. elusion of any particular class or description of voters, or to pervert its raeai>i"g irotn the obj>i^ it fairly- avowe.1; but merely to remove the douhts which h nstro^on--and the cotJstro^ion which he sh'iuld propose, was precisely that which had always struck his o-vn mind opon the subj^tt. The object of the Aft in q lestiort, v/as fo exempt Candidates from the enormous demands to which I hey were made li:ibie, under the head of charges lor the co^sj veyance and travelling exp^inces oi Vorers. not resl. dent a,t thepl.iceof election, un.i to prevent tite sys-teni of brihtry and coniipiioa w-iich, ondef the pretence of such ch;irges, might be and as-lu;t!j\' were carried on. The eviis in those ca^es could notarise' in places where tite voters were all residents of the towns or vicinage, but where persons ciziming a tight to vote at such eleftions resided at a dtjt.ince, oUen at the extremity of a county, which constantly gave rise to scenesof confusion nndenormotrs cxpe.ice; for,, in coining to give their votes at such cledioiK," t C7 uniformly daimed tha e.^tpences of their C011V'V!)ice and travelling charges, and those m>on the m 1st extravagant scale, from the candidates f;>r whom 11 Ay chose to vote.-Perhaps there might be no very ijreat objedion to allow the claim of a voter, crfJhing from a distance to give his vote, at a considerable loss of tira-', to some reasonable allow-, ance for travelling charges an.l nccc-^sary refircsh-mei'.rs; bur the �s:ige of making such allowances had siiU throwa open a door to such extravagant demands on one hand, ami gave such an opporuinity for �bribery on the other, that every fair-Iiitendif:g Candidate must have long since "wished to see some eflt-fltial check put to such a system. � Many determinations had taken place from time to time, upon repr sen-attons and complaints of this nature; but they w-'re all upon distiatt grounds, and none of them including all the obje6lions for which remedy was desirrble; nor were there any cases which ha.l occurred 'affording ai\y series of precedents which ct^uld be decisive for the clear construction 9f the Aft. The chief difficulties^ had occurred in Westminster Hall, and' the Couns of Common Pleas and King's Bench had difiE^rcd materially in their decisions upon the subjeft. In the former Court, an aflion had been brouglvt in the case of Crick^tt and others, on the part of a publican, to recover from "a Candidate a sum for refreshments given to his voters: but Mr. Chief Justitre Eyre was of optjvion,. the law could not sustain sucha demand, and that it was contrary to the ACl of Wil. Uam III.
