IIOU.SE OF LOltiid, JuKsoAV. Ja.n.31. Tin; pUKK OF VOKK. Lord SUFFOLK rose to advert to rep�)rts which had long and ui.lely gone abroad to prejudice the character of the Commander in Chief of the Army of this country. The origin and Circulation of these reports were too notorious to allow him to let them puss unnoticed and uiicensurrd. Never was. the discipline and appointment of the British Army brout^bt to sucli perfection, as since the time it has been under (he direcli->n .ind the au-spices uf his lloyal Uighnvss the Duke of York. Many were the instances which it was in his power .ta.8�Mw?**^t'JVC inilugfry, the jcsolulioii,^ and the ieal,"which hart 00 alt occasions, wiili which he was acquainted, been displayed by his Royal High-ness ftir the improvement, of the army, and for ali the means by which that improvement might be extended and cnforcedl Tue Noble Earl, among others, instanced his own llegimunt, in which, since his.Royal Highness's administration of our military atfaiis, the most beneficial ifnprovuncnts had been introduced. A Lieut..Colonel uf that Regiment had .been removed, and placed on half- _,-pay,, who was wholly incompetent to .discharge .any.duly to wliich responsibility attached. Among the endless Instances he might advance in favour of his opinion, of Jhe rigid and disinlerestwl ex. erciae of the power vested in thfr Commander in Chief,- he might observe from his own kpowlcdge that the Lieut.-Colonel of his own regiment had been removed on account of incapacity, although (hat Lieut."Colonel was the son of a man who had deserved well of his country, and which nothing but a service and conscientious sense of duty wotild have justified any man in removing. Jle mi4$ht likewise Instance the eitablishment of the Military College, which was the suggestion and the accom- - plisSimcnt of his Royal Highness the Commander in Chief, and from which the British armv had al. -ready dcrivjtii the most essential fraits. In short, of the various improvemeob introduced in the army by bis Royal Highness the Diikc of York, the .examples ?vere inlinite, a.nd in every resppct gave his Royal Highness a fair and strong claim to the gratitude of the-country. TJiE SPAMSH TnE.-VTY. The Duke of NOJll'OLK rose to ohsrrrp, thqt had any of,his Majesty Ministers appeared in their places, he would have taken the liberty of putting a question tc> them, viz. What *vas the reason vchy, after this ]>romiga in hie Majesty Speech, no ducumrnt:! bad been laid on the table re.�i>cctiii^ the announced Treaty with Spain? He wished to L i. I * I I'nuw if *ny circumstances had arisen to prevent the Df.'kc of DalmvtU, after the battle of ; tke layW of that Treaty before the House; or whether It was expect'd soon 10 appear, pursuant to the promise held out in the Spc cii. He wished his desire in this respect might be communicated to some of his Majesty's Ministorir. if he did not see any of them Hr their places to-morrow, he should ai^ke a motion to the effect of what he had ob' srrved; butif any of them chose to attended to his qriesti/in, he should delist from any motion. the LORD CHANCELLOR ebserveti, -that ai coiiiaiunicatiod would certainly iw made to his Priiiya;, proceeded (e expel the English from the poiit of Piedra Fella. He there took 1500 Eng. prisoners, d pieces of tanhon, and several caissons. The enemy '.was obliged, to destroy a quantity of bagcage and stores. The precipices were tilled with them. Such was thi-ir precipitate j flight and confusion that the divisions of-LuRoe and LatioussaVe foiind ainong the deserted bag. gage, waggons filled with gold and silver ; it was part of the ireasure 'of the English army. Tlic proptirty fallen into onr h^mts is estimated at two miliiqns. . '  .'. .. ' On the4t'fa,�tnfghT, the French advanced guard | vas at Cistillp and* N()cedo.

The CHANCELLOR, of the EXCHEQUF.ft had no other answer to givcthan that he hint made to Ihe question of the HoD. Gentleman. ..Xttopre-sent was a motion of a course renewed at-the commencement of every Session, and not to be de.^ ferrcd till the production of the iicC4)iints of the preceding year, which were rrgulatcd as lo'the time of their production by the piniiig any i]isres|K!ct tu thu Right Hon.

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUE.I would be particularly happy if the Honourable Gentleman coiild^ by any regulation h'c couId propose for tin; production of the public accounts, remove the necessity for farther grants of supply-But (ho Hon. Gentleman must know, that it would be wholly impossible to make tip the aecMntS of the public expenditure, extending thruBjh- such a multiplicity of hands, and over so great an empife, monthly. He was ready to give, every assistance in his power to expedite the production of the public accounts, but the Ilouse atitl the public would only be deceived, if indiicrx^ to su,->pfi9s that any bcnefi', on the ground of .'ctfonotny^ wotild thence be derived.
