Yet though there was no proofs of cor. rujxion in thi^ cos-, there was ample room for censure.

Mrs. Clarke^ kacw from (he Duke of York, what was to ba done at the office, and seemed as well aware (hat the oSicial course w^'i to be attended to, as Qok Gonloiv himself.   I.A-((cr 3ls�, " I hope you will attend the Duko to:day, as Clint.m baves him on Thutsday, ami he has alt yutlr wriit(igs in hand : be wilt nJt 16ave his Oflide (ill six.*'   From thi�^ the Hon. Genliemdn contended it was* clear, that MH. Clarke bad adibect co%imunica'i*�fi with' (he Oinie (hroUi^h thfe Duke of York, otherwise h  *' Seiid hbi" docuhients of the exact num. Iter sent, itk order to shew Ihcin lo the Commander in Chief.   On letter ten, the Honourable GentU-m^ln observed, it was very natural for Mr=. Clarke to suppose that Mr. Greenwood, if he Saw Sanden at the Opera acquainted with h^r, wou^d Ima^inu that he had some intiuetice with herj and by itientionin/j it to the D�ke of York, place him if> an a�kward situa'ioh, and perhaps oblige hini to piVe up the levy, which Wuuld be i.ti jiiriouSto both pariU-s. Of Utter six, li� observed, tiiiit it WAS a peculiar circnnistuiicc that no docU-iBenis were to be found on the table relative to the I subject  ias clear Kcilid it on the authority bf Mr.^. Cljirkc alone, or of theDuke of York ttiroiigh hef, as directed lo (his letter.   By this it U-as seen that Mrs. Cl.arkj iisamined pt-oposals for raising one thou-and men ill Germany, and made a report thereon to tlio Duke of York, acting^ in  thi* iustunre, in the capacity of Comoiand-r in Chief herself:   It Aias aho clear, that she had dune su from (his circum-itance, that she desirod Sanden (o wait upon the Duke of York   to talk o*�r these very alti-r:t>i(H)Si    !^he r&presetHs herself as haviug sug-ge9lt�l to hiiii, whith she would not have done liiiless she bud really held siitb a Conversation.- Tho next letter (i\o; 13)j stated, that tiie Dnke tif York was " very airgi-y with you (Sanden), foi: when  he last saw, you,  you pr. miscdr him 300 foreigUcrs, and yon have not t>roduced wnt. O yes, Mr; Sitidert is a pretty feilow lo dejieiid o/J.'l   This was'-a piiSittve proof thatthe Geiuiua recruiting was carried on with the kBdwledgu of the U'tke of York.    It wa^falso a ]>roof of Mrs. Clarke's knowledge of the proposals-made by SaudeO to the Commander in Chief, which she itiust have been made acquainted witb by'hisHoy-al Highness.    After these letters, io additoii to~ the evidence hcafd at the t)ar, thure could be no dohbt dn Uie' mi Ad of atiy one thkt Mrs. CJa'ke possessed intiueitce over the Commander ia Chief, and nicd it oil this occasion.- '  The next point lo ! bu exatriined was, whether  ibc Cummaoder iu 1 Chi f ktiew'of Urs.
