Mr. OERESFOIID then rcpcatctF, that helook-cd on the publication of such a inis-stntcnient as a gross breach of the privileges tif the Houses At-tkc .'iame time, as he did nut believe that it hail been an iiileniiunal misreprosenfiUion. he did nut wish that .iny pnuishmcnt should bt^ vi.sitcd npiui the person ollending. His object in ri>iji>; had bi'en to mention the circumstance to (he iluu^e, and to avail himself of the opporfuntty of distinct-ly slating that he had neviS- used ihy Ijngua:;*! iin-putcd to him. If it were the opinion of the tliathc ought to do so, lie would in that this was a gross breach of the privileges of the ll<nise, and follow that motion by anmlier, that liie Printer of the Paper be brought tu thi; Hir-(A general cry of No, no,) But if not ht- woul:! adiipt anyother mode of proceeding liiaf misht he su^-gestfd to him as proper, uniier. the csisiiug cir-ciiiiistanccf;. The SPEAKER observed, that there wa� a course sonu-linurs pursued by the Iloiis-, which it would be in their discretion to follow or not, as they might think fit in the present instance. It wa.s where a comjdaint was made, such as that jn.^t preferred by the Hon.

The CHAx\CEr;LqR of th.p KXCHEQUER said a few words, in consequence of what had fiilien from (lie Hop. Gentleman iinder the gallery (Mr. Ciilverl). He ailowed.with that Hon- Gpntlcman, lliat ' privilege reports' (Jonn tinued) any Ho before they refused or delayed to take the proper steps to assert their privileges, and punish the of-fender. At the same time it milst be evitlcnt to the Ijy whoni these ri-ports their accuracy, be though uniiiieiiiional a more complete mis,-representation iievei-existed than that brought forward liy thfrilon. GcnUemail; and he had himsilf obscrvc<J to-day,, in the description published in th'e newsjiapersj of the narrative which he (Mr. Perceval) hatl Wst night given to jihe House, several very gross errors. Biit he was| Satisfied in his own liiHid, that however gross, they must all be nniritdnll'on^l j and he should therefore Flip-port ihe motibii for aii adjournment of any further proceedings. , ' Mr. Xfj- SMITH alsd^ suppoitod the motion for; connivance of the iii the pQ[J]tiGaiioo -xA- �" what tsJok place wjibin iis walls, could not'^th " atlvanfage hctlisconfinucd, Ijut it was certaijoly.

With respect to. the general licenlioiisuess of the press, there might be indiviiJual instances of laxity, it could not be said that l.'ie Crown Officers bad bcen.crlsnjit.'llly lax in (he pro.secution, or ihe Courts of Justice Cri-niin.illy lenieri( in the punishnient of libellers. I?iit it seemed that autong the misrepresentations vrldcti had f^ono abroad of what had took place last niijh't, were Some relating to tbe narrative of the Iligllt* iloHi CJenlleman opposife (the Chancellor of the Excheipier)!
