Biit be that as it may>! ,he wscs anxious to "RMfe J�is proposilion faii'ly and distinctly, andto assert,- that if Ministers gave to theclause grantiB^ the power of i'ccal to thicCfowri, the conitrnctiiad of its cftiprnvering' h ia^Hi^Otiia, .Ungfbiiaded'rccal, it wdnild b6 cxefclslng; a iifia^titdft' and arbitrary power, a power directly opposite to the spirit and meaning of the clause; and he broadly maintain, that if the clause was uSod t.o compel thi? Court of Directors to.cdipply with the recommendation of Ministers, such an attempt waH an open, -direct, and unjnstiiiable violation of the spirit and provisions of the act; at least Minisicr'3 stfould be willing arid able to state the jnotive.s arid therea.soi!s tjiatinihice them'to resort to s-uch an exercise of power. Was Sir G. Bnrlow uiifit for the sitiiation he holtl, or why in such an iiistaBce, was a prerogative of the CroW'n put itt force,wliicii had not, been exercised for tv/cnty-two years ? If he Wiis ris^ht in his construction of the claijse, he was sure it ouglit to be exercised with-temper and circuriispection: if notj'thc w-orst conscqiiericuS wOnld ensue, and instead of a sober and solid G;^-vernment, there must be nothing but confusion and . anarchy in the management of the aifairs of India. ^Surely the running such risks and incurring them iutemperately and capriciously, argued a mast re-prehen.siblc conduct, a conduct that Merited the isevorcst puaishm.cnt. It would fjc-how for their lijVd'ibipS- to consider hovy far these observation.? pp.iod to the circumstaixces of .the present case, .'ind ro the slate of India at the death of Lord .Carnwallis.

The*;e reasons the Noble Viscount treated as absmd and .untenable..
