The Order of the Day for the Lords being sui^i: ntoned, biincrcad, , '   j Earl GllO.SVKNOR saW, in.tnaking the Motion j which he was about to submit to tucjiouse, he j should have thought that it would have met. wifh no ; upp6sili6tt unless he had beard a rumour to the i coutAry.   Jle thonght the necessity of an iutjtiiry j into the State of things for tl^e last six months, w.i� � a iti'easttre of such obvious necessi'y, that it need- | cd no arguments to indtrce tl�� Jlome to adopt it. ; If iH examining inlo the -conduct of the war of ' Spain, pai-iicularly was such, as to shew uant of judgmtnt in the jJan anil inadeqoery of prepara. tion in the means, and that.ou"r sad teverses and disasters hatl happeni-�l by the ignorance and inca-pacity-of Ministers, it wotiW then become the .iu-ty of timt Httitsetu address his Majesty to remove |uch inconipetebt Managers,   In con.-i.lering ti-ir pi-isent situation it livccssardy led us to look buck to that great phetioroenoo in the moral world, the iFirench Uexohition.   It was npw abont twenty I years  il^rld�   It had led to the dt>slrifctioa of most of the old Goverrt-mentu of {^urope, ami bad involved    in s^eiiteen memory to demand an cmpiiry into tTH* point. If there was any demerit, let it even weigh on tlie aihes of the dead ; if tlierc it ought to rest, fiul the gratitude of the coitnlry, the hotioUr of the country, louflly demanded that the reputatitin of of her dead lierocs should not be sullied, it wiis il;rir own best pcipcrty, it was their own honour ; for natural honour was but the character of her iU lusfrlous men. On this ground particularly he lio|)ed an enquiry would be gone iiHOi With re-Sjiect to the motie, he insisted the one. proposed by his Nob'.c Friend was the ngnlar and I'arliamen. , tary one, and, if any doubt existed oft that safc-ject, he hoped they woilld atTjourn the (!^b�t(> and appoint a C.imn�itiee.t  loss to see bow it cosild be entertained by their Lordfc ships without a very wide deviation from the.riiles sknd practice of Parliament. It was in the rdcpU ioic,tion of their I.ic>rd5hi()'s that at the cio.se of the last'ScSMun �f Parliament it appeared;to be the woanimous wish of Government and of the cojin-try, thai every possible a-'Si'itanr.e .should be afforded to the cause of the .Spanish Patriots- The same determination and wish were sgain c.xprcSsefi atthe opening of the present Session i his Ma-jestj-'s Milliliters must, therefore, have fclt.fhem-selve-i bound, and tnu�t continue to -he impn>sst't! with the necessity of giving to the cause of .SpaiiV the' rcSoiiroeT anil energy the country enabled them to furni<;h, to men struggling in a cause so 'unequal-battle-, atitl itBiny more had fallen victims to hunger; inwhich they badlosttwo of thcablest 'glorious and i'potit.hat principle, and tipon officers their army could boast-one slain in the field, and the ^her (Gen. Anstrnihrr) actually died raving mad from hunger, fatigue, and vexation of mind. Vet, having sunuduiited many and arduous difficulties itr a retreat of unexampled hardships, the army was kept four diys atCorun-oa forwant of transpc/tts; and.if they had arrived butone tiaj' sooner, they who rcinnined might have embarked without mole-itation. Why the trans-ports were not ready, he should think was a matter which thii House would wish to inquire into, as it might hare.sari-d that sangt^inary conflict which preeeded the. emb.trkatiom. Upon all these grounds hc.moved that the Iloii-e do resolve itself info a Committee of the whulo House ta""iil-quircinto the state of ithc nation. The Duke of MO.VTROSE spoke shortly in reply; he defended the campaign in Portugal as a judicious plan for the relief of oiir old and faithful ally. lie contended it relle�ed_tile Spaniards from, the appreben.tn*.Ll;"**l'        I/?"* 1>^ospect, while the ambitious spirit ijf Bona- !'paytereniaitiecl, ft*hppcfor p^ccu\' 'lie considered WQi^ld ;t)c amitcbief much tu be dicaded, as it pitched battle, instead of adhering lo the defensive system, produced the. evil, and our army, which was meant only as an auxiliary, was not men ty the principal, but found itself left alone and un-supporled. With re&pect to many otiftr points (oochi il upon in the Noble Lord's speech, he confessed he could not speak with the confidence the Nouhi l/arl had done, as he did not know the facts ond he believed the Noble Eijrl knew no more than himself, though he urged his arguments-so strenuously ; hut from all he had heard, he was nut eonrineed there wuSvAoy ground for the inquiry demanJed. Lord DAR.NLEY spckc shortly in favor of the motion. * J.ord GilENVILXF. .�aid, he w.as'much asto- | nished that any oppo-lfion could be m3 the Noble Earl's motion, as lo rumove the objet:-tions which he noWtnterlained to it: but then as a previous step, the Noble iiarl should move for in*' formation upon each of these points.    He and the House should first be in possc!>sion of the real fact's, bjifore they proceeded'to pronounce a judgment on matters Wbicih hereafter might prove to be wholly  unfounded.    Every* inforina'ion wbidi might be safely laid befofe the public, his Majesty's Ministers itcrc ready to produce.   They were equally ready antt prepared to meet any investiga-tiuti of their �ndUct whi::h it might be thought proper to institute ; but to agree to a moticni for a Committee to iiiq.uire generally into the state of the naiion, would be only assenting to.-that whi^K mu^t breed much confusion, -create many inconvr-nieocies, and in the cad be productive of no advantage whatever.   As to whit had been said respecting the Hhcrty of the pres�, bis decided oj)!-nion was, that the existing laws, if daly enforced, were fully sufficient to repress au.y liceutiAusness into which it might degenerate; oiMhat subject, therefore, the Noble Ejrl might feel no alarm.  It wa� in vain to say, as had been said at the open-ing of the Session, that the miscoo.durt of Minis-tei8 wa� obvi'tus.   If it was so obvious where was the nece
