Daily Courant (Newspaper) - October 30, 1730, London, Middlesex The Daily Courant. Friday, O&ober 30, 1730. Continuation of the journal of the &)et of Grodno, begun in la(t FridayV Courant, ON the 9th of October, the Director, after having complain'd that their former Meetings bad been - to no purpofe, defired the Nuncio's to proceed to the Ejection of a Marfhal, hoping that M, Marcinkiewicz would no longer oppofe it: But this Gentleman then ask'd how M.Lubieniecki, Nuncio of Czernieebow, bad been fatisfy'd, who had menrioned the Diploma of ''Election' (of Count Maurice of Saxony): at the fame' time that he did: Whereupon the Director anlwer'd him, that that Nuncio, who was then abfenr, would not break in upon the Laws, which prefcribe the Order that ought to be obferved'in the Dyets, but had deferred that Matter till the Chamber fhouid be in a Capacity of proceeding upon Bufinefs, and that he fhouid be glad to hear he did the fame, M. Marcinkiewicz not coming into that Proportion, fcve-ral of the Nuncio s ftood up, and defired him not to. infift upon a Point which it was not yet proper to rake into Confideration: The Director in particular, endeavoured to per* fuade him not to binder the Piogrefs of the Publick Bufinefs, by demanding a Thiug im-poffibte, fince Count Maurice being in France, the King or his Minifters could not receive the laid Deploma very fbon. MY Karaqwski, Nuncio of Siradia, added, that M. Marcinkiewicz would have been in the right, were the Queftion about fubverting the Conftitu-tion by which that Depioma was annulled; but that as no body dreamt of any fuch thing, he was now a&ing rather againft the Law than for it. All thefe Representations having no Weight with M. Marcinkiewicz, the Nuncio's of Ruffia and Rawa went out of the Chamber, prorefting that they would not come into it again,till they knew whether he would have, a Dyet or not. The Director thereupon asking what muft be done in that Cafe, M. Karnowski's Party were for defiring the two Nuncio's to return to the Chamber: Others were for endeavouring to perfuade M. Marcinkiewicz to defift; and in this Confufion the Director adjourn'd the Seffion till the next Day. . The 1 orb, M. Marcinkiewicz not being at the Opening of the Seflion, the Director ask'd the other Nuncio of Upita, whether he , was acquainted with the Intentions of bis Collegue, and whether he would confenr to voce for the Election of a Marfhal : That Gentleman anlwer'd, that no Mention was made of the Diploma \ in their Inftructions, and that his Collegue bad not fpoke -to him ro infift upon bis Pretenfion ; Wbeieupon the Pirector having defired to be informed bow they would, proceed, feveral Nuncio's ob-fe.ryed, that as M Marcinkiewicz had not prore(red in the Forms, and bis Collegue con-form'd himfelf to the Sentiments, of the Chamber, they might proceed to vote for a Marfhal. Juft at this Inftant, in came M. Marcinkiewicz, complaining of the Violence that had been offer'd him the Day before, by depriving him of the Freedom of voting. The Nuncio's of Ruffia and Rawa reply'd, that they did not go out of the Chamber, to ftop the Courfe of the Publick Proceedings, but purely to prevail �ich him to depart from his Opposition. M. Orlewski, Nuncio of Livonia, added, that if M. Marcinkiewicz's pre-tended Zeal for the Laws was well grounded, that of the reft of the Chamber would be Criminal, which be believed to be the only Defence of the Laws 9 but that when he demanded juft Things out of Courfe, it was the fame thing as if he demanded what was unjuft in itfelf; that his Pretention feem*jd to be the Shadow of fome Image, wbo/e Original ought to be dilcovered, and what was concealed under it; that in fhorc the Chamber would do well to perlift in their Refolu-tion, and leave the reft to God: Then he 5 defired him once more to drop bis Motion. The other Nuncios did, the like, and begg'd be would have fome Companion for his Country, fome Regard for the Publick Weal and tbe Good of his Brethren, or at leaft to let them know whether there fhouid be a Dyet or not. After this, were read tbe Constitution for fettling tbe Order to be obferved in the Dyets, and that made in relation to the Affair of Courlarid, to convince M Marcinkiewicz of the fhjuftiee of his Pretenfiqn. In "Conclusion, the Director told him, that if the Laws tbemfelves could make no Im-preffion upon him, he ought at leaft to pay fome Regard to their Intreaties; and that Nuncio having reply'd, that after he bad once (aid a thing, he could never revoke it, the Director adjourn'd the Seffion till tbe next Morning. The iitb, the Director defired to know, whether they would proceed to the Election of a Marfhal: But M. Marcinkiewicz perfift-ing in his Demand, went out foon after, pretending to be indifpofed, declaring that be would not break up the Dyer, but only prevent their giving any Vote, till he had feen the Diploma This Declaration not being well underftood by the whole Chamber, by reafon ofthe great Confufion the Nuncio's were in, the Director ask'd M. Marcinkiewicz's Collegue, whether he went out upon Account of a real Indifpbfition, or to ftand by his Contradiction; who having declared his Opinion, that it was upon both thofe Accounts, the Director put an End to the Seffion. The izth, though it wa* known before the Opening of the Seffion, that M. Marcinkiewicz bad regifter'd a Proteft againft all that the A ffetsibly: fhouid do, and was gone away,.the Dirtdlor nevertbelefs put the Queftion, whether tbey would chufe a Marfhal; M. Marcinkiewicz's "Collegue then faid, that having been to enquire for him at bis Lodgings, he. could not find him, but he found the Copy of a Proteft.1 The Stardft of Grodno then acquainted them, tha -:hat Proteft bad been delivered to the Regifter, but with Orders-not to regifter it as yet, M. Marcinkiewicz defigning firft to inform tbe Chamber of it, and to take their Opinion, whether he ought to deter the Regiftring of it, and why. Thereupon, fome infifted upon the Reading of that Proteft, and others were for difTo!vingrtbe Seflion : But tbe Nuncio of Podlachia reprefented, that in regard that Proteft was made, as it were, againft the whole Republick, it deferved to be examined; but that feeing.M. Marcinkiewicz, when he went out of the Chamber, did not'' proteft in Form, and befides he did not Carry bis Proteft in Perfon to the Regifter ; moreover, as that Affair was concerning .the nice Point of a Right of Interdiction, he was of Opinion that Proteft ought hot to be communicated to every Nuncio, but that it was -fu'f-hxient to read it in the Chamber. The Director approved of that Propofal, upon Con* dition that after the Proteftation was read, it fhouid not be demanded of him, neither fhouid he be required to difmifs the AfTembly* hoping by this means to bring M. Marcinkiewicz into his Meafures- At tbe fame time he gave the Proteft to the Nuncio of Ruffia , to'read it; and having appointed Deputies to go and fee for M. Marcinkiewicz, he-ad* journ'd the Seffion till the next Day. The 13th, the Director comparing the' Chamber to a Sheepfold, the Nunekrii to the Sheep, and himfelf to the Shepherd, he added, that fince one of the Sheep was ftray'd from bis Flock, it wis his Duty to go in queft of it; and that as neither he nor any of the Nuncio's had yet fet Eyes on him, be adjourn'd tbe Seffion till the Day following, in h'bpes of finding that loft Sheep.
