The Requisiiioiiisfs had not prepared any propositions to offer io llie consideration of the meetings. The cointiiencement of the meeting was in cniisequei-.ce delayed till some miiitites had elapsed after one o'cloclc. Sonie of the leading ciiizens iiad, however, made finulilionil preparations, which were to be used in case of the other party failing, wliicli theie were j^ood reasons to expect. A coni-raodious plat form was creeled in froiit'of the hotel, at the end uf Kiiig-alreet, which was only to be u-ed in case the Reqiiisilionists shotild not arrive v�ilh their promisetl waooon. The same judicious prepa-r.itionswere tnade with respect to 'lie Addresses and Resolutions. The idiirf members of the Westniiu'ter Committee were in attendjuce at the Rainbow Coifee-house, either to assist ilie Requisitiouisis in tiieir proceedings, or to substitute otlier measures, should they fail to appear. At a little after one o'clock it was formally announced, to ihem that the originators of the meet-iiiif would not be able to appear. The party im-nie-diatply left the cofFee-liouse, and ascended the platform ; thev were accompauied liy the Representatives of Westminiiter, the Hon. Fl. (-J. neunell, Mr. Ellice, of Coventry ; Sir G. Noel, Mr. G. Kniijht, Mr. Gordon, l)r. Gilchrist, nnti other eminent � persons, who were all rapturously hailed by the assembly, as they were recogniseil, on tiieir a|>pe;iraiice. The IIlGll Hailiff read the Requii-ition, and referred them to tlie Geiitlcinen around him for a detail .of llie olijecis of the meetiiit;, .4s the weather was very inclement, and Ihe thin ram was fiiHin^; fast, it was deemed advistdile to shorten the time of the mcetinj; as much as possible, consistently with the carryincj into effect iis several objects. Mr. Gaudn rr, ihcrefore, proposed without, a sirmt; of Resolutions. Air. Croft Fish secomled them. They were put by the High Bailiff, and carried unanimously. An Address to the Queen was then read by Mr. G.4BDNi='.R, pioposed, seconded, and adol)tcd with acclumalions. A Petition to the King was carried in like muiiner. The following ttre all. the Resolutions, which were ooreed to in the course of the proceeding's:- That this City and Liberty has-for many years endeavoured to call the allenlion of the people at large to the state of the Representation in the Rouse of Commons, and have used every means it possessed to restore to the People their fair and full share in lire Commons House of Pai-liameut. That Io the defective slate of Ihe Represeulation of the People ou^ht to be attributed all Ihe evils, the country endures, whether Commercial, Airi icultnral, or Political, and lhat to the same cause oiiF,adopled be signed by the High Bailiff, on bc-half of this' Heeling; and be by him prescn led to her .Majesty. ' That his Grace Ihe Duke of Bfilford, the Earl of Cavtiar-von, Earl Grosvenor, alid Lord Erskine, be requested to present the Pelitiou to his Majesty on in early day. Thai the'Thanks of this Meeii.n; Ire given lo Arthur Morris, Esq. High Bailiff, fur bis impartial conduct in Ihe Chair. Mr. Fish, in seconding the Resolution of Thanks to the Representatives, said, that be cotild not sutler it to pass without iiiakinij; �u observatioii or two upon it. He would not delaiii tlveip long, for if he did it would shew lhat he was iudtfi'ereiit to their health or comfort, especially as they would have nil immediate opportut'iitv otlnr errot^'if ihe sysieiH, wjis likely to visit an unjust sentence uiiishnunt, fie wished them to preserve and keeji owake the recollection of those alroclties, bcciuse it was the com-niou policy of their enemies to draw off their attention !)s speedily as possible from an inspection iiilo niiy glaring acta of inal-ttdministration, by plncing a new subject before them. He would not detain them longer thuu to say tiiat the Resolution had his most hearty co'icurrence. The Resolution being carried wiili loud ticclama-lions- Sir pRANtls RuRDETT stood forward to return thanks, and was cheered with still lotide'r applauses, AlleiKiing. there as he was in duty bound to do, being one of their Representatives, to assist them io carryiin;: into etl'ect whatever decision-they might come lo on the Proposilions or Resolutions which were proposed to lliem, he would have conlined himself to the expression of h very few words, but for the pi-cubarly flattering munner in which the Re-solulion had been supported by the speaker who last addressed them. It was quite unnecessary for him, at tliis time of dav, lo repeat those assurances which he had so ofleii made to them, that he was proud of being one of llie.people of England. That in his mind was, and always had been, a more estimable title than any particular distinction winch had ever been in the [tower of Princes to bestir.v: and if he hail been proud of that clia-racier, because he was of a country renowned for ages past its high enthusiasm in ihe cause of freedom, which was even now struggling ardently and wisely in that cause, how must that proud feeling have been iijcreased, after the example of patriotism and wisejconduct lately evinced by the people. lie wished particularly to congraudite Ihe i.ountry on lhat Iriuuiphant spectacle which had been held out to the kingdom and the whole woild, in the conduct of tfie iiihabilants of the metropolis, when the Queen went forth amongst I hem, after she had reaped that coiupiest which had been prefiared for her by the ispirit of the people of England. The conduct of lhat day, when the Ministers anil all liie numerous adherents of corruption were in eager hope of the occurrence of some scene of riot and tumult-when the populace were left to ilieiuselves, and Government had withdrawn all the supposed means of preserving the peace, means at least which they habitually employed for that conduct, presenting as it did the mighty spectacle of a great people enjoying the tj-uimph of public principle without one act of insubordination haviua; been comcni.iled, proved how capable the people were of rightly valuing good govpriiin''nt, how much they abhorred bad e^induct, either among themselves or their rulers. The light of knowledge which had gone forth from this country had shewn that its influence was advancing in many parts of Europe. In speaking of the conduct of the people of England, he thought that it was not at all improper-that it was perfectly relevant to allude to the conduct of Spain, where the natives, led by Rrilish example, had wisely, moderately, and resolutely effected a change iu- the lyrannie rule of their governors. Similar things had occurred in Naples and PoirtiigHl ; and however much it might be the interest of Ministers and their adherents to renew the tiraony, wiihout any teslimonv u(ioii which they could reasonably hang a dog, ihey were to infer guiit. Her Majesty was said to have been an extroiiiely kind and affable mistress-by some, tl'.ough nol by him, she wss cniHidered I'o have carriL-d the exercise of lliose qualities too fur. Far was such an inCt-renci.- from his own opinion. Th^^ uioie exalii-d llie stalion of the personage, as he conceived, the greater and the more aceeptafile wtis the coiiiletcriision which ought lo disliii-gnisli It. Her M-.,jesly was iii llVe linblt of Mi^iling the >ick brd.s of her atteiidante, and Irom this ciiarltuble and benign disposition, li-.'d they been i'uniished v.ah many proliered proofs of crimiiiality. One of her ntlendants was ill of the plague, or was s-,.ip|n)sed to be so: -the Queen visit-e.l this man, who was thought to have been ill of llie plague.
