After some observations by theLordChanceIlor,Lords Erskine, Redesdale, and Grey, Mr. Brougham rose to; speak, but it being four o'clock, the House adj��urned. FIFTEENTH OAY OF THE DjgFENCE. f HUaSDAT, oct. 19. The Hduse resumed proceedings at ten o'clock this morning. Counsel being called in. ' Thel^ORD CHANCELLOR said, that he had it in comi mand from the House to inform tliem, that the question on which the debate arose yesterday could not be put in the present stage of the proceedings. - ' Mr. Brouguam said, that there was another question, on which he wished to have their Lordships opinion, whether it should be put or not. He understood their Lordships to have decided that he could not ask the witness Meoni to tell what Zangia told Meoni had been said le him (Zangia) by Col. Brown -in short, that Zangia himself miist be called to prove the dec!*' ration of Brown to him. Earl GREY was of opinion that her Majesty's Codnsel had aright to pursue the course in which they had juJstbeen interrupted ; it was perfectly consonant with the opinion given by the Judges. Lord ERSKINE said, that the Judges in stating that there must be some introductiou of the deleace of conspiracy,, did not certainly allude to the original opening. Such a defence might not be tiiown at first; it might arise out Of the proceedings, or out of any cifcunisiances.coming newly to the knowledge of the party. And he would aj^peal to the oandoucof the Noble Earl opposite, w.hetber upon such a case newly arising, it would be right or fiir to oppose Counsel in opening what this new case was? Lord DARNLEY said, the difficulties thrown in the way of her Majesty, must have rendered it impossible for her Counsel to ascertain, at the period ol opening the^case, circumstance!) which might arise in the course ot the investigation, and that might be calculated to establish the crimes that had neyer been in the contemplation of those employed iiji the defence. He hoped that, seeing the insufficiency of the'evidence in ptoof of the case, and that so many extaraordinsfy things had arisen to throw discredit uptjn the charges, their Loirdsliips would, at no very distant day, give up the case altogether, as the only expedient bv which substantial justice could be done. 'The LORD CHANCELLOR said he had ytisterday expressed his reasons for differing from their Lordships upoii the subject of receiving evidence, which, their Lordships had thought proper to hear. It was a painful thing for him to be placed in such a situation; but he should never cease to declare^ that no slander, no calumny, should prevent him from conscientiously performing what he considered to be his duty-(Hear, hear.) -Mr. Williams said it had never been intended to prove the crime of conspiracy by ihis witness's evidence, against thttee who were concerned in the Milan Commission. The evidence he had called was to effect Zangia, and hot Col. Brown, and he was glad that their Lcrdships now understood (the question, and that no reply would be made to what had been stated. A conspiracy migbthave existed without the knowledge of the Milan Commissioners. The circumstances of theirgoing over to collect evidence, .might ha v^ excited an appetite for profit in many persons, and without, their knowledge the conspiracy m'ght have arisen upon Uiat foundation. It Ifiad been insinuated, that Zangia ought to be called by those who wished to change the conspiracy; but they already charged hiin with being a culprit, and who would all ttpon him to criminate himself? As (he case was now understood by their Lordships, he (the Learned Counsel) submitted. On every ground,' that the question ought to be admitted as evidence. ' Mr. Brougham followed on the same side. The Counsel for the defence did not seek to give evidence of the declarations of Col. Brown, or the Milan Commission. That was not the present object. He had already had something tO do with the Milan Commbsioners, and he, perhaps, might have to do with them again,'but not at present. But because they did not now seek to fix the conspiracy on CoL Brown and his coadjutors, was her Majesty's Counsel to be prevented iirom proving the conspiracy oii the part of other individuals to impede the evidence for the defence, and to increase the evidence for the BiU?-Whoever he might be, whether Brown or Zangia, or any other person who had done this, and he could prove tbat it had been done, the fact ought to be brought home to him. I am proving that Zangia made himself an active agent against the Queen, by what he had done. He says to a person he'wished to seduce, to become aVitness for the prosecution, " Swear against the Princess of Wales, and youshaU have a reward." The man says, " I cannot, I know nothing about her." Oh," cries Zangia, " what signifies that, I will take you to the gardens where she walked with bergami, to the rooms where she sat with hini, and I'll tell the dfty and the hour when they were really there; so that you have nothing to fear from exposure. So here, come along with me-take these Napoleons, choose your spot, I will prove the Princess and Betgami to have beein there, and you have only to swear that you saw it, that's all."-This, continued the Learned Cctmsel, I am prepared to prove; and it would be monstrous to suppose for a moment that, hearing this, any one of your Lordships codld lay his hand on his heart, and declare on his hononr, that such a proof would hot make the slightest difference In his mind, as to passing that Bill which was to ruin the(2ueen. The ATTORNErGEKERAt replied at some length to the arguments of her Majesty's Counsel. Mr. WilUams had,argued the question^ legally, but Mr. Brougham had given up the legal argument, and had contended, that whether legal or not, the evi. dence ought to be admitted. He contended, that, according to the rules of law and the principles of justice, the evidence could not bk admitted. Counsel were then ordered -to withdraw, aed a long debate took place, but being strenuously opposed by the Lord Chancellor, it was on his motion decided thai the question should not be put-Counsel were then called in, and the determination of the House communicated to them.- The witness .lifltonto Meoni was now callen to the Bar, and examined by .vir. Wiili^iJ. You stated yesterday, th'^t.jpoui.wehtiwUh ZangU from Venice . to Milan?-I did. X . : Didyou return with Zangia t^.'Venice.'...Yes.  How many days were you at Milan?...Two days. What is.tne distance from Milan to Venice ?...One hundred and eighty.five miles. Did you pay your ownexpences, or did anyone pay them-for you ?...! did not pay even one hundredth part of a Uvre; Zangia paid the whole. Had you any business of your own at Milan f...Ho. Had Zangia any as a stage manager or otherwise. None. - Did you see Zmgla do any thing else than ga the Oporto Oiientale and the Rue Gabello ?...He went also to loOk ui'ier^ a person of the name of Imberti, a sort of second manager of the theatre. Yoa told us, yesterday,' you saw Zangia come down itairs from Col. Brown with a number of Napoleons in his hand ?... Yes, I did. At that time did he make you any oiler ? The Attorney-General objected to the question. Mr. Williams.-It is^a question as to.a fact. The Solicitou-General.-And we object to that fact as as not .relevant. c . . Mr. brougha>t.^Am I then, to understand that the decision of your Ltftdship) is Ui apply to all other evidence that we may have ready to adduce of similar offers having been made^ to suBojcn ana bribe ? The LORD CBANCELLOR.r-Mr. Brougham, it would be infihitdy too dsring to give an answer to your question. The House can only decide upon each question as it arises. ' Mr. RitouGHAUi-We ean tender no other kind of evidence than can bring the case of conspirat^ nearer to the Milan Commission than that which your Lordships are.pleased tor^ect.- We have not Rastelli to produce, we have not R^ianti to produce; we have no means of compelling their appearance... All that we can do we are ready to do, but your Lordships seem to say, that ail we can do is df no avail. . I understdhd your Lordships to be of thatopmion, tbat the calling oh Col. Brown, die brihg^g oilt of motley from biml, and shewing that money as a. bribe received to bear evidence agaiiist her Majest/, are circum* suuv^ not sufficient to &>aa?cl the bribery with the agents of the Milan Commission. If so,l canonly say that you cut thus the (4ae of pur case; we can, situated as we are, Rastelli being withdrawn frOm us, an^-R^anti beyond our reach; produce no stronger evidence than we have tetiaered, and your Loidshipt -have rejeetad^ -If such is ttie decision your Lordships have come to; then we n^ nqt carry further the line of evidenw on which we bad entered^ I'he LOUP CHANCELLOR.-All I can say, without taking the sense of tbt; House on the siityect. Is, XtM thi qtiestioh of c^ng other witnesses must be left entirely to your own dis cretibn, and I atn atne it eknnot be lieR to any better discretion.

JiaTtv^^Sahadore was tfoiR^ed in* and esusined by Mr. Did he make any application to yon on the subjeist. The Al'TORNEV GtiMERAt objected 10 this question, UpOrt the groun(\, that the declaration of Sacchi, given by another person, was not admissible under such circumstances}'Sacclii not laving been proved to be an agent. Mr. Denm-a-k Saidt hisobJL'ctin asking the question was to prove.that Sacchi had assured the witness that his fortune would be madeif he^gave evidence against th^Qneen, and Of coutse to shew that the'evidtace of Sacciu-agaiD and he understood-the Counsel for the Queen acceded lo it, if he should be culled immediately ; but it appeared he was hot in attendance; so a> to be called immediately; and indeed, he understood that he was not even in town. (Yes, he was, from Lord Liverpool^.- Then he was not within call. If-he had, all the time wasted in discussion would have been'saved. Under these ciicuiustauces lie thought their Lordships should enforce this order, and not let it be a dead letter on the table. The .Earl of LIVP.RPOOL certainly understood that Sacchi might have been called, hud the Counsel required iti .As to their Lardsliipx order being enforced, he could have no objection. Indeed he thought the witnesses ought to be in snch a situation during the proceedings �s would enabteHliehi to attend instantly if required. He did not understand that the Qiieeii's Counsel did so require the atteudauce of .'i.tcchi yesterday. The Marqnis of LANSDOWN uuderstoocl Mr.Brongli-am, when he was asked, if he wished Sacchi to alteud to say " yes, now." - Altera few words fromT Lot d Lauderdale and Lord Bedfsdale, the snbject dropt, with au-itnderstandiug, that their Lordsitips order was to be enforced. Counsel were then called in, and the Lord Chief Justice of the King's Bench proreedod to declare the opinion of the Judges on the questions referred to them last night by the Lord Chaucellor and Lord.Erskine, and declared their opinion that both questions should be answered in the negative; and that before a witness could be examined to the declaration of a former witness, the witness must be called back, aqd interrogated as to lliuse dectaia-tiohs. Tlie LORIi CHANCELLOR, then addressed Mr, Brougham, and said some differences of opinion existed as to the questions put to him yesterday, and his answer 10 it as to calling Sacchi; he would now ask him, did he desire to call him. Mr. Brougham .oaid, be certainly expres-ied his wish to call him yesterday, bad be betu forlhcomiHg, but he was not now disposed to call him. Lord SIDMQUTH thought it right to state to the House tbdl a messenger was sent to Sacchi's huuse yesterday, and he was coming down to attend their Lordships, when he was met by several Noble Lords, who told him the House had adjourned. The LORD CHANCELLOR, then pot it to their Lordships lo adopt the opinion lieliveied by tiie Judgeii. Lord CiK�Y would not oppose the decision of the Judges, but he considered there was still another ground un.whicb this question might be put, and that was, that Sacclii had been proved by bis acts the agenl of the Milan Commission* The Earl of LIVERPOOL could not assent to this opiuico of ilie Nolile Earl, for the.reasons formerly urged to their Lordships, be atiii continued of opinion uoageucy wa^ proved.

The Marquis of LAN SUOWNLcoulendfd ll at the House was fully authorised on ftJr. Powell to produce iheseleilera. He was anxious lhat the truth shuuhl be gut at; and as some Noble Lords thought this mislii be doae bv a Secret Committee, he would withdraw his presenut motion, and submit another, which was ** That a Sicrei Com>mltee be appointed, toexHiniiie the correspoudeuce of Mr. Powell and Col. Bruwn. Earl GUEY contended, lhat the confidence between principal and agent would uoi be violated by the productioa of these papers.
