HOUSE OF LORD'S, Monday, Feb. 17. Til E w A a. Lord Stanhope nioved that the Iloufebc fuinmoncd for Thurfday next, on v.Mcli day lie meant touring iynvard a motion reipeciing the war. Ordered. that that Monarch had not withdrawn himfrlf from the common caufe, and from the' interefts of Europe. But to thofe who apprehended that this country, that, the interclte of Great Britain in the war would be injured by that tvarit of cordial co-operation which they, ipeak of, he would put it, whether they believed they amid better i'erve their country than by' fupporting his Majcfry in a conleft for the prelerva-tion of every' thing dear to Englifhmen ? That fup-pprt could not be effectually given but by enabling Mm to fupply the deficiency arizing from t) e abienit of the troops of RutUa. 11 wovrtd be fert tjmrj ft wit tine common difficulty of communication with the Con tinent," it was ho: poflible for him to Hate the preeiie. amount of the force rr the i'um that-would be wanted. He had on a lonner day Hated 500,000/. as the fnm he fhould conceive immediately nccefiluy; andhav irig then alio ftated the' general heads of advance, he would that evening limply observe, that the object was to fecuvc the co-operation �f- fuch a force as his Maj'eliy's Minifters had reafon to believe would amount, to a much greater force than France could bring to art at the particular points of attach. For this purpofe the wluJe i'um "vvanted wonid be about S^OOjOCU.'. He concluded with'moving, That the Cum of o()(),000/. be granted to Ids Majetiy. Mr. IS'ichulU was of opinion, that-before adopting the Motion, the Houfe ought to enquire into the ftate -of the country in many rdpefts. Committee on the fubject of the had gone abroad, and excited ^fltj_wiflied for peace;"'"but correcting tlift expfef-(Ton,'he a^fin .(^dj *41 labfrtred for peace." : Mr.' Ticrncy contended, that lierc was a.; recorded proof of infincerity; yet the country wifhed at that mo-nieftt for peace, winScs^r;.pc^ce now,' and he" was qjllle fure ffi^fepfe t^fthe pe^rjle.^^.ipJ3kcn- by thole. only in rfutt' Hottie who wilhetl ajfe'lcfr^eai*: .i- Mowv ever, he did not believe the people of this" country woil;d accept of any peace dvfrogato'y ;io' the if ho-: nour. The only argument the liight Hrm. Gentleman had ufed w^s, :)bat tJic prefent ttic'afarC* only followed up a pr^loHs vote 6f the Houfe, But .whatever jhl'tneli there might be in tliat' tind of reafon-ing, the argnajetlt� ili.cl not go fo far as "that di/tcr-of Cirdnttiftanccs might not call -for a dif- encc ferent contrail. The defeftion of the Ruffians was confcffed,;. apd; the character of the .cortteft v?;iz, therefore, mat?rially.altered. He did'not doubt but flia't if the JSAperor^ Patil could give men, he would, and we had a right to cspett his -.co-opci^uion in fentiinentsj for he had beati well paid for the armies he d^d: &nd, of whomnot'one man wiisbar-gajned fox* af^BVpTdjna.ry .rate.

But now it appeared he^knew nothing about it,: Paul' avowed himli'lf for the ryftoration of the French Monarchy, but what was the objecl of the Emperor of Germany? Had he declared; alfo for the fame objecl ? . No. He had declared- that he did not approve of the object 'of Rnfiia, fo that "jvliat he meant by a comindn canfe was in realiiylhc acquilition ofterritory. If Aullfialiad adopted the objecl .of. Raffia, or' if tliat Hbttfe would adopt it, there .would, then  be a fpecific.'object fo contend for.. However he had not the fmallclt dyubt but the objecl of his Majcfty's"Minifters.was the relib-' ration of Royalty in'France.. For notwithftaudrrig their ' Ihus' and ' iis'-arid ' however*,' and a-ll -the little arts of diplomatic -fpecial .pleadings; .inch had been Uft'ic whole conduct, ;it was ,dit?icult to know how they could wifli for any thingclfe.

Mr. JolijTe would vote for the motion, becaufc the majority of that Houfe and the country decided th'af the war fhould be perjevercd i'h. Mr. Uoincrie fai.d, 'hat the only ground on which he would objecl to the motion was, that he thought the Overture for Peace was molt arrogant!)" and in foltingly refufed. Had there been a fair acceptation ofthe Overture, he would have,fupported every pro-polition for renewed c.xejlion, and for incveafed operations. 1 le could no? admit that we were fo abandon a great objeft from fcaf of a temporary fcaioity, and as to the Hon. Gentleman who fa id that the opinions of thelfaajovity were not to be contradicted oroppofed he would afl:, " Are v;q riot placed here to give our individual vote with perfect independence ? lie did not more admire Bonaparte than did the. Gentle-tlemen aver againft lurri, but any man placed at the head of the affairs of a'Gre;rt Nation (hoiih! not be treated with contempt. Minifters had iidiculefl t-very fucccfiive power that ai'ofe in. France fifice the. Revolution, and they now ridiculed the Govvrmnenf of Bbna'parfe. There was no end to fuch {lander. But it did not become the dignity of this Country to adopt the language of contumely ufed by the Right Hon. Gentleman, lie cencludcid by opposing' tho motion. Mr. Tierncy could not give a blent vote, when he refiedlcd on the time the debate had taR5n. One I loin. Gentleman tells us, that we who oppofc the majority, act an � unbecoming part f but what reafon was there why the few were not entitled to as much refpect in that Houfe'as the many. When it was recollected who voted on the queftion for the Negocia-tioh at Lille, he believed the truth would appear to ^b\s. that the few tlrcir lpoke the fenfe of the many- thaVthry fpoke the fenfe of the country." The Right Horn Gentleman bad, on a recent occafion, confirni-6d this; for he had admitted-that he (Mr. Pitt) did not with for fuccefs at.LiUe. [No, no, from.the, 1 Treafury Bench'.] Such might not have been the [ precife woTd*3", but he was"quite certain �f what the * -Right Hon. GentJejuaa ^� whici wast-t(Mr. ciple that jected ; 'and ......... , . , admitted, might come drnvn in a few nights and call on l'aWiarnent for any fji-m, on lhcr fame .principle. Another oljec'tioii he had to the-.motion hud been anticipated, but not removed; The treaties were not before Gentlemen', and Lin*!! they were, he fhould oppole. the . motion.-But why fend any money at all ? lie knew it would be an-fwered, that the Emperor had abttridiincu of zeal, but unfortunately was without nldney. Was jt too much to aik Gentlemen to -recur to what paijed at the beginning of the war ? We then gave him a large I'um i>y way of Loan-and what did he do ? Why he took our money, and as toon as it fuited his own convenience he made a feparate peace with France. It was urscd that we ounht to' avail omfelves of his nifiltance, which but for as miirt lie inactive,for want of pecuniary retburees. lie would alk how it happened that during the Lilt campaign he dil'covcred his own refources ? for he brought laft ye-ir a greater number of troops to the. field than he had ever done before, and without any. alfillaiice from this country. Whoa he found he was refufed .affirmance from tins country, then he could find out refources of his.o'.Mi. Bftt the Hon. Gentleman fen nod to think, that if be again �ot our money he would not repeat hi* former conduct-but he aiked the Houfe if it wore too much to refpiire fume evidence of the. nature and extent of the co-operation which we were to expect from" our Ally.. He would alk the. Houfe alio if they.would have faric'tiotfed the vefuiul to, negociafe, had they known, what he believed in his confcien'ce Minifters then knew, that we were not fo have the ailiftance of � Ru'ffia. That was a fail now admitted by the Hon. Gentleman; but he foftened it by telling them, that although we were not to have that Monarch's affifhrice on the Conti-ncnt, yet that wc might reft afl'ured of his being firmly attached to the common caufe. He doubted not but that wc might depend.upon.the co'-operafcion of the Ruffians in certain points,' fuch as that of getting Malta, for thenriblves, or doing any thing for their own intercft and advantage. He v?a>} not prc-paredto fay, nor did he mean tc? fay, that a fubfidy muft ofncceffity.be wrong--quite the contrary; if. blood mull "be lhcd,-he would rather wifh it to be that of German Allies th;m our own ; buton'the pre-i'ent occafion he fa\V no neceflity for any, becaufo peace was within the power of Adminiftration if they would but conddfeend to treat for it..
