That ihis Meeting hereby declares its firm attachment to the Constiiotion of Ihis country, as by law established, and roost sincerely deplores the recent allempt to infringe on-the-samc, by introducing an '' ex post facto'" law, lending to degrade her Majesty, and enllatigering bolh Ihe safely of the Throne and the rights of ihe People. 9. That Ihis SleetiHj is of opinion the proceedings in the House of Peers originated in a conspiracy of the most dis-graceful description, and were wholly supported by ihe gross, est perjury aud snbornalion of perjury against her Majesty's honour and dignity. 3. That this Meeting feels Ihc greatest regret that her Ma-jrslj's exulted station precluiifd her being tried by a Jury of her Countrymen, in one of the Courts below, where, in the opinion of this Meeting, had Ihe same evidence been brought forwnrd as Was adduced at the bar of (he House of Lords, llie conspiracy must have been exposed to the world, aud a vertlict of " Not Guilty" inimedialely recorded. 4. That this Meeling wannlv admires the firmness which her Majesty displayed dnriag those proceediuffs-a firmness so demunjlralive of her innocence, and which enabled her Majesty so decisively lo defeat the formidable array which was marshalled against her. f>. That an Address of Congrafulalion on the glorious fei|-mitialion of the proceedings in the House of Peers (founded ot) the foregoing Resolutions) be presented lo her Majesty by such of the Inhahilauls as her Majesty may be pleased lo ailinil to her Royal preseny; it had been "deemed advisable to postpone it for si.x days. Fie had sent iioiee in due lime to the newspapers ; but from the press of other matter, chiefly connected with the tjueeii, Ihe publication of the notice had been poiitpnned. He regretted that many persons had lost their time in utleiiiling on that day : he honed the fault would not be attribuled lo tlie Sheriffs; tliey hud not had �ii hour to Iheiiistlves since they entered office. Thi-y would alvavs be found willing to aitemt to the ui-hes of the public. The worthy Sheriff then read ;he requisition upon which lie liad been induced to call the meeting. Uavjjpg thru staled the objects for which it had been called, he had only lo say that he hoped the ntiiioat patience would be excrci>ed lo every person who should udeiKl in a great measure on the temper with which they were conducted. He had noihing lo offer upon the objects of the meeting; as it happened, however, they were fully accjuainteeiween iheiii. Tlie Manchester ftiaasacre antlliie proceedings which followed it belonged to the grwn bag system. He knew of a hundred filthy jg^eeii ,bags, whtcli he wished not to repeal, but if. iny'Genlleinan wished for iiifurmali'on upon soHoatilii0,ipt; a subject, he was rendy to jield ii. fl^^aii .'itb^ut.l� prppote an Addreiir to the QiJeeii,;whic4i^^Ct�iistetl' would be (in fjtattiiile/of'th'e spirit of the country to the country and to posterity. He'complained, liowtVer, that there was one omissioji in the recital of the Sources of public grievances. He alluded to the gambling of the Slock Exchange. Wiiliout ihe aid of tlie brokers. Ministerscoi^ld not have run such a career. The establislinieiU of the Sinking Fund, that grand bubble, had robbed the nation of 350 millions of money. The Act established certain low rates, by w'hicli the national debt was to be bought up; biit the after-policy of Ministers and their brokers had been to raise np the price of the funds, so that instead of pitying off the debt at the rate of GO, which was par, and under, they had been paying at the rate' of io0 for every 70.- After many other severe and humorous remarkr' on the misconduct of iVIinisters', the Hon. Gentleman concluded by moving a Resolution, which slated the necessity for addressing the King, the ftnii-hing words of which were, "and that the following Address be adopted." Upon the latter words he meant lo found the Address, which he would read to the assembly before Ihe Resolution should be put. A short conversation arose upon the point of form. Alderman Wood said, that the Resolution must be altered by leaving �ut the terms, which, if agreed lo, would idedge the meeting to the adoplion of a particular Address, It was necessary tirre8sion warrants us lo conclude llml your Ministers have only diverted the war from the common enemy lo your .Majesty's peaceful, loyal, and attached aiihjecls. They have destroyed ihe rights of your loyal ."^ubjecli by excessive taxation, to answer Iheir extravagant schemes ; ihey have deprived ihcm of the ordinary supports of life, and have been unrelenting witnesses of their perishing by thousands. Tbey have erected barracks throughout the kingdom lo overawe Ihe people. They have filled ou%i>oor-honsts with able, willing, and in-duslrious persons, and reduced thera to the level of the aged, the helpless, and the infirni; Ihey have tarnished the na-liimal honour and glory; they have gone far to destroy the national character (which we are struggling to redeem); they have poisoned the sources of private life; Ihey have given a falal blow bolh to private and to public credit; and, iu f-ict, they have subverted the Constitution. Again, Sire, the encoaragemeot and protection which they have affordeil to individuals, fur the purpose uf disse-ntinating disaffected doctrineB amongst your loyal .peoide, lending criminally lo separate the interests of Ihe Muuare.b from those of his subjecls, and give a false colouring to their various arbitrary and illegal designs. The refusal of Miuistors at all times to inr|nire into or redress Ihe grievances of your Majesty's aubjesls, their conniving at and abetting Ihe massacre of your loyal and industrious people at Manchester-these afford most satisfactory proofs of Iheir misrule. But in'n� instance has Ihe conduct uf these Ministers been more derogatory to the best interests of the Crown, and degrading to your iVlajesty's throne and dignity, or more disgusting lo the nation at large, than the lale unparalleled, malevolent, and wicked perseculiim of your lloyal Consort, in which bribery, subornation, and perjury, have been Iheir instruments of operation. In fine, they have dissipated the wealth of Ihe nation- they have destroyed its commerce-they have ruined its agriculture-ihey have heaped misery upon us-Ihey have hazarded your Majesty's throne-tbey have prohibited all inlercourse between your Majesiy and your loya^ people- thev have deprived us of all the blessings of a limited monarchy aod a free Constitution-and their conduct has been calculated to substitute rebelliort for loyalty. Tlieseare no common errors; Ihey are great crimes, and of these crimes, before God aud our couulry, we charge your Majesty's Minislcia. We, therefore, implore your Majesiy, as Ihe father of your people, lo relieve Ihcin from Ihc-se nubearable oppressions, by dismissing for ever from yov(.r presence these Ministers, aud calling to your future councils men who, by their integrity, ability, and firm attachment to the principles of that Consiilntimi that seated the Brunswick Family ou the throne, will restore.that noble fabric lo ils original splendour, and at once seal the interests of the Monarch in the aifections of the people. Mr. Edgby seconded the motion. Mr. Mills now stepped fc^ard, to move his own Address as an amendment. *^Ie considered the only oiie thing needful, which ought to be the object of tlieir thoughts by day and by night, the attainment of Parliamentary Reform. Without securing that ofiject any Address which niight be agreed upon could be of no more importance than those which they had been sending up lor thiriy years pa�t, and which had been thrown under the table of tiie Secretary of the Home Office. He then read the Atldress which he meant to propose. The most remarkable passage iii^ was an assertion, that more public money had been spent since the beginning of the lust reign than in the whole course of one thousand years before, under alt the several families which had reigned during that period. Major CartWRIGHT seconded the Address of Mr, Mills. 'I'o seek a chaiigi; r,'.' ir 'n, withoiit securing a cija.nge of ineii.Mirf?;. w:^s wi iJly uic'iPtir,.
