Wlint sort of bed did the Princess occupy; a single or a-doubts bi-d ? It wasaboiil six aiid'a half feet in hrea.llh ; he savs " palms" seveu of which are about equaj tu'six fcet Enillih.

Did this uccnpatioD couliliue during n gicat pert of ll.e voyage. Mr. Williams objected to this question being so put, as it might lead the'witness. TheJSglicilpr-Geneial said he was extremely anxious not to put any thing that might be considered as leadingvbere it wasroaleil^t, hut iheir Lordships wou'd easily pelceive vvLen it was unimportant or when it was of ci.nsequeiue. The question was iheii vnried asfol'ows;- How long did that occnpaiioii of (he cabins romiiiiie ' Fiom Ihe middle of March to June; but aflerwnrds ihe Priii-cess chdiigrd to sleep on the dick under a tt-nt. Aftir we were from Jafla, where we look 011 board iseVeii liuises ami two asses^ the Princess always slept on deck under a leirl. What bed or beds were placed on deck Under ihe tent? A sofa bed and a Itavelliiig bed of the Prioress was pni up. The witness has told us that ihe Princess and Bergami slept below, but lhal after they left Jaffa the Prinrcss !,lrpc in a lent on deck : now where did Bergami sleep after ihey left Jaffa ? Under the lent together wiih the Piinctss; iit dlfTereni beds. Mr. Williams objected that Ihe interpretation was nut suffieiently Iteral.  ' The Solicilor-General desired that Ihey might have no ir.-terrnplion by conversation al the bar.  ' Mr. Brougham s-aid, Ibat by the order of Iheir Lordships yesterday, the interpretation might be checked, and that coold not he dou'e wilhbnt a conversaliiiu belueeu the iniei-prelers, if llirrt were any doubts of li>e inli rpr>-i�(ip.

Huw lung did Bergami continue lo sleep In Ibis manner ? -Uolil they landed al Porto d'Auza, near Terracina. At night was the tent open or closrd all round ?-During the uight Ihe tent was closed-shut. Who was it usually closed the leni at nighl ? I was coni-tnanded to close il, and 1 commanded otfttrs.'' Was it so completely closed that a person co^ld not see within, or was it partially open? It was my orders to close it, and when 1 could not do so with s.iils or curtains I did it with pills.- At what lime in the morning was Ihe lent usually opened ? About eight o'clock.
