At length, finding they could do nothing better, they mustered courage, and went down to the ship with a large force, and got the man. Two days afterwards he underwent a secret examination of five minutes, ai.d was strangled the next morning without ceremony.

This being the d.iy fixed for the opening of Parliament, the Lords appointed for tlmt purpose by his Mnjesty's Commi.ssion assembled iibout three o'clock. The Commissioners were the Lord CImnct'llor, the .\rchbishop of Cniiterbiiry, and tlie J'nrls of Westmorland, Harrowby, aiul Shaftesbury. Hiivini^ taken their seats, the Coniiiiission w&s read, and tiie Lord Cbeople. Agriculture is recovering from the depression under whirh it Utxiured ; and, by the steady operation of natural causes, is gradually rc-ossuming the station to which its importance entitles it, among the great interests of the nation. At no fonner perioest attention and assistance t^) any propo.sition wliieli nniy \m' submitted to yot�, for promoting the moral improvement of tlie .S'eirroes, bv an extended jilan of reli;.fi()iis iii.striictfofi, nntv earnestly recommends to you lo treat this whole subject �itli the calmuess nnd discretion wliich it demands. It is a sulijici perplexed with dilRcullies, which no 8iider zeal." 'i*he Earl of Errol tonk the oaths and his scat, a.s representative Scotch peer : Lord Bayning took the oaths and his seat, on succeeding to the title; and Lord Gifford was, in consequence of his creation, inlroerii)d which bad been required since the conclusion of the peace to enable the country lo recover from her embarrassments. The country-had been involved in a tremendous conflict wilh a people in a stateof revolution, with a new republic naturally of great power, but which had acquired an immense ae.- of the comntiunity in this island, a more cheerful spini of or^ewf He was sorry that circumstances had existed in the ^iflniBIetoTti btit heviT�s'�^yi8Teart Iffiatirafiiiiawas ^watly-nrt-hdcd, both in its condltiba and In its temper. He ^ad him-seif been for some time in that country with his regimei t, and might pretend to some knowledge of Ireland. He, therefore, would have dwelt more upon that important subject, were he not confident that the noble lord, who he understood, intended !o second his motion for the address, would not fail to call .their lordships attention to it, and would discuss it much better than he Jcould be expected to do. (Hear, hear ) Their Lordships would, \vitli him, be happy,to hear froc^ \\,^ Mhjesty's Speech, that there was little apprehension of the prosperity of the country being disturbed by any interruption of tran-.luillity on the Continent "of Europe. With respect to the dllfer-enct^ between Russia and the Porte, it appeiu-cd that they were ike'y soon to terminate favourably, in consequence of the exertions of our ambassador at Constantinople. Tho�-(l the I'lencii invasion, she must have sustained all the burden uf the war. His Majesty's Ministers, therefore, acted moot wisely in the caution they exercised. It would have been contrary to every principle ot prudence to have plnnged this country into u war for the protection of Spain. With respect to what Was >tatcd in the speech on the subject of the provinces of South \mcrica, he trusted that the conduct which his Majesty's Go-lernmeni had pursijcd on that delicate and important question would meet with their lordships full and unanimous approbation. For the provinces separated from Spain, every thing had been done which ought to be done for the commercial interests of the iounir\-; but farther his Majesty's Ministers had not thought it ulvisaSie to go, and most certainly they were right in reftttang from positively pledging themselves to any future measure^. Their lordships were informed by the Speech that same augmen-t ilion of the land and sea forces was intended, but that, not-�itli8tanding the increased expense which would thereby be in-' urred, it would stiil be in the po�er of Parl'iament to make some reduction of the public burdens. One of the circumstances which called for the intended increase, was the necessity of strengthening the garrisons in the West Indies. The mentioning of that quarter of the worUl led him to the last topic in the Speech- namely, the conduct which had been observed by the Government on the state of negro slaves in ibe colonies. This very subjei i was olie-wbich reqwred to be handled with great delicacy; but with respect to it their lordships were not placed in the same si-tiintion as the other house, since they had adopted no proceeding respecting it. The Speech held out nu intention of ameliorating the condition of the slaves. The situation of these unfortunate men was one which their lordships must lament; but while every ihiiig ought to i)e done for the improvemeut of the negroes, no less care ought to be taken not to infringe on the just rights of the planters, wlio, as well as their lordships, were British subjects, and who had been encouraged by acts of Parliament to carry on their trade. He was now about to conclude; but he must beg leave to recur to a topic to which he had already alluded. If the country had so rapidly recovered from the state of distress into which it had fallen, their lordships might conclude that the Government had acted wisely. His lordship concluded by movini^ an address expressing approbation of the principal topics of the Speech. l^)rd LORTON secondeil the aoii these results, which had been dictated tjy the voice of natural reason, because he was one of those who never desponded o; t!ie [)owcr of the country to rescue herself from her ditficulties, if l;cr resources were properly directed, and her commerce/elieved from many of the absurd restraints nuder which it had lonsr laboiirei'. He now, therefore, saw with niimixed satisfaction, the ado[itioii of a more liberal commercial policy, producing its natural consequence-the improvement of our trade, and of course the increase in our financial resources. The Earl of LIVERPOOL observed, that after the able speeches delivered by the noble lords who had moved and seconded the address, he might have saved their lordships tlit; trouble of a single observation. With respect to the internal state of the country, it gave him great pleasure lo say, that ail the noble speakers who had preceded him, both sides of the house, and he might add, all parties of the nation, entirely agreed. On this subject there did not exist, and could not exist, tlu-sliglitest difference of opinion. He (Lord Liverpool) believed be might say, that at no period of our history had this country enjoyed a greater or more general prosperity. The noble marquis who admitted this fact, had congratulated the on the circumstance that this improvement in our condition was to be ascriberl to natural causes, and was tlierefore likely to be permanent. Their lordships would recollect tiie time, wbra the impatience of particular interesls, lh ler the pressure of suffering, called for relief by partial expedients. Happily their lordships had resisted such applications, au'.l in this manner had avoided those evils wbicli frequently sprun.:? from injudicious legislative interference. It was, therefore, gratifying now to find, tfia-ivitbont the tampering of Pariiament, the country recovered from its distresses by natural It would generally be acknowledged by tbo/e who reflected on the magnitude of the late w:i;. that this country could not be expected to pass tbroufrh t!.c-struggle which it had so long maintained, without making ex-hau.^ting efforts, and incurring great sacrifices, which, though a;>t so sensibly felt at the limp, could not fail ultimately to pro-dncc their effect on the sources of our public prosperity. It was consistent with general experience, that the result of these efforts, particularly in the case of a successful war, were not felt till after their termination. In the late war, our agriculture had extended, and our manufactures attained a flourishing state, by the extraordiqary expenditure ; but in returning to a state 01 peace, that expenditure had ceastd, and the war demand for many articles of industry stopped. Though the properties ot some bad therefore increased by the war, the country of necessity was exhausted by its efforts, and on the return of peace w>;s doomed lo suffer from that cxhiustion. But in addition to this cause of our late distress, we had another difficulty to contend with, a difficulty, of serious and formidable importance-he meant a return to a metallic Ciirreiicy,iv He would not now advert to the origin of this difficulty-though he might, as he had formerly done, state it by the way to be.,Jjis opioion, that with out a paper currency we could not have parried on the btiaines.
