To thePrinterof the Morning Chronicled SIR JSC^^-^^ HAVE often fmiled when 1 was ac Paris t0 read c^e ver/ extraordinary I accounts which the Lon- z*"1?"^ jrf ^on P"nts "fed to give ay y ^ of that city, but more' �^^^V efpecially of its parlia--' s ' % mene ; fuch incoherent jumble as ufed to be put together w,ouId make any-man laugh who was in the lead acquainted with the proceedings of that aflembly. I have converted with many fince my return, who frequently have mentioned the parliament of Paris, yet not one of them feemed to have the leaft knowledge of its co.nftitution ; I have, therefore, fent you an account of it 'for the entertainment of your readers, which is not eafy to be met with, and as there is now on the carpet fome very great difpufcs between the faid- parliament and the new Monarch, not, I think, at this-time ubles� fonable. In the reigns of the firft Kings of France juftice was generally adminifttred in the King's, he himfelf fitting as Judge*, {lifted by able counfellors, fo that the place was changed on the King's changing his re-fidence. ' King Pepin being obliged to go to Italy, that his fabjecls might not fuffer fir want of juftice in his abfence, inftituted a parliament: cpmpofed of feveral of the wifeR andgreateft perfons of the kingdom, in the year 706 * they fat then generally twice a year, but both, the time and. place were not fixed. Thefollowing Kings made fome alteration* in the institution, and the place of fitting was not absolutely fixed till the reign of Philip le Bel, who declared the parliament fhould be held at Paris, and no where elfe. By the edict of 1302 they are to held a feflioft twice a year, that is to fay atEafter and All Saints; the Kings chpfe two prelates, and alfo two Barons, who generally were Princes, to fi1: and vote in the parliament. At firft there was but one chamber, which: was called the Prelates Chamber, becaufe there were a number of ecclefiaftics who had feats therein ; but the multiplicity of affairs made it neceffary to augment the number of chambers, and at prefent itconfifts of eight, viz. the Grand Chamber, the five Chambers of enquete and requete, and two of Tournelle. The Grand Chamber is compofed of a firft prefident,. of feven other prefidents, and twenty-nine counfellors, ten of which are churchmen, the other nineteen laicks; all dukes and peers have a vote in this chambrr, but none under that rank except the Abbot of St.: Dennis and the Archbiftiop of Paris for the time being. . Each Chamber of the Enqueue and Re* quette is compofed of two prtfidents and-twenty-eight counfellors. The proceedings .before the chambers of enquete are by writing, the court enquires into fails, (and it it called enquete from enquirere to enquire) after,which the determination is alio given in writing. All caufes relating to the civil offices of the" crown are brought before the Requete. If thefe people commit any offences the plaintiff prefents a petition much like a bill in our Chancery, and this court punilhes the offender accordingly. 'Tis called Requete,-the words fignifying a r'queft or petition. The Tournelle CriminelJe as ittablifhrd. 1436 ; it is compofed of two prefidents, and eight counfellors of the grand chamber, arfd of two counfellors from every other chambei?. Sometimes criminals appeal from the fen--tences of the ordinary Judges to this chamber, and they have power either to confirm or remit the fentence as they find i: }i>li or un-juft. The Tournelle Civile waseftabliflictiin the" year 1669 ; it confifls of one prefident, and half the number of counfellors of the Tournelle Ctiminelle. They determine in fmall-caufes where the difpute does not exceed forty pounds or forty Shillings a year rent. In the vacation a chamber is appointed for .judging fuch caufes as require difpaash ; they fit from the 7th of September to the Feaft of St. Martin 1 but this is not reckoned one of ;
