VoL L No. iG,-a54 O. S.]      SUN DA F, OCTOBER 15, 1820. SUMMARY, &x. The proceeding against the Queen has now completely fixed its character a applies to the country. During the last week only a very few witnesses have been examined, and that in a manner against which we aver no person in England could he proof; and the remaining large portion of the time has been passed in mooting points concerning rules of evidence already fully established, and discussions arising from the anomalous nature of the tribunal. One very distinguishing feature of this sort of trial has been established by authority, that the Counsel who argue the case are to be restricted by the rules of evidence, but the Judge-Jurors (the Lords) not! ~N,ow there can be no question that either Counsel mnai fee permitted a latitude equal to that which is taken .by their Lordships, or her Majesty cannot have the justice of ttap,poorest villager interested in making a road, so that she may more safely carry her eggs to*market. For it is evident that otherwise bis Majesty's Counsel may make out their case, anda 4 as they are also Legislators, they may then majteTall this law.-We admit, this to he an extrenie "hypothetical case; hut into what extremes has not this anomalous proceeding already gone ? In the mean time, whatever has been effected in this excursive, search after truth, although not so conclusive as we, as Advocates, would wish, h; s been decidedly favourable to the Queen. The ugliest facts heretofore advanced are at least neutralized, if not yet judicially negatived; and every hour is producing a continued reinforcement. This is greatly aided by the obstinacy with which every objection is caught at and contended by the Attorney and Solicitor General, and every trick of what is called, among the refuse of the law, sharp practice, set in motion. As the Solicitor-General last week, so the Attorney-General this, showed himself in a light for which we are really sorry at heart. When discovered that Rastelli had got out of the power of confrontation, by being sent away by a subordinate party, the learned Gentleman is understood to have said " You must procure his attendance as you can." This may be forensic language, but it is not that of a gentleman. Of the, Evidence one trjfjirig incident occurred* jifiiicbwe think damning to the case for the prosecu- those of the Queen the other, and afterwards ttflil i|on. Rastelli, a courier, (now gone out of thecoun-hundred arise, and make out as many cases, having jfy) knowing tlnat a balance was due to Garolini, a, no relation either toone. or the other: and theti,laM% Ikbilder, asked him how much was due, and told him these extra Counsel are also Judges and Juro&> � cfe:w _:,, lob jj �ervibe, flelc^ejT*^ pt'cniltyrtj mean h Viatty aii inter are /aibout it. lownaif to ttie jy; �jiiti^n^d a whole day and part i^, &e tfritish name by his candour, Jfetp'J^^is) drawn from hi pi, upon W. ^jS^pife $iiMtfgJtc�, wljo, after ^JhtJMWT?'* because he bad not the " ^f^fcte^f appWf itie/e4jt*'' Take auouYef,'while \Ve e& dr*w�� froifc evidence, and per- m :s'  J " ' *        / frr^t�at-me lady of Lieut To go to a tradesman of her Majesty, and touching him on the tender part of an unpaid bill, suggest how it could be got paid by the use of any knowledge which, while he was enabled to earn that bill in her Majesty's house, he might have obtained, that could possibly apply against his patron, is ao shocking, that while it shews the wretched, yet dreadful resources of these subordinates, and consequently, the injurious conduct towards the Queen, it at the tame time proves, that no gentleman in the eonfidenpe of the King, had any thing to do with the execution of the Milan commission. We perhaps lock at this incident in a closer point of view than others, from its frequent occurrence in our'military advocacy, where many a man of the most perfect lionour and Approved eonduct, that could have been tangible by no other mode, has been driven out of the service of his country by similar means! It may be asked, how this can obtain without the sanction of ajitkority ? We answer, that it certainly
