Ct>o:miss.ion, to sevWal Bills"._/;/^rifAiiLurdCAsTt,EKEAGiri said, that that most important ob-' ject bad^not beeii' lost sight-of. Government were fully a^4i.r�juf!the.necessity of establishing three gaol deliveries itv eacb: year, aitd'lhein'pasure.had only been xlelayed from tnjiiii; carried into efl'ect by the communications which it W4H necessary fur-the Government tu have made with the variuiis cduulieih [)t?ctiiig the conduct of her Majesty the Queen.-[Here the Honourable and Learned Gentleman went into a statement of the proceedings winch had already taken place from the lime of bringing down the green bags till the Report of the Committee appointed to search the Journals of.llie Lords, by tihich the House were informed of the ntroductioii of the Bill of Pains and Penalties into the House of Peers.] The Report of the Secret Committee of tlie Hou?e pf Lords had been laid on the iable of that House. The docamenl was now, consequently, common to both Houses, as it regarded the purposes of inquiry, because it shewed tliat an inquiry was pending. He, read the passage from tbe Lords' Report, which alleged the necessity of solemn inquiry, no less for the sake of the Queen ihau that of the King ami the Royal Family. Thus it appeared to him that the House were so far in possession of the proceeed-ing as the possession of that docuriient went ; it pledged tbe HooSij to nothing as it respected the Bill of Pains and Penalties; they would be at liberty to do as they pleased with it when it should come before them. There was before PurliaiDent, as an exislinjjand compact body, a proceeding in esse at kast, aud the proof of :t lay in the document to which he alluded.- He saw a flight Hon. Gentleman (.Mr. Tierney) shake his head, as if in objection to the argument whitb lie had adduced, and certainly the shaking ' of the Right Hon. Gentleriiau's head was enough to shake the ppintons of most iVJembers of that House ; 3iit all'thiit lie.iiacf urged was, that the [iepot-l ot the L.ofds wag proijf that iliere was a proceeding in train ni; progress through the Parliainent. If right ill fiis preJHistes,' was it iiot the duty of ihe Hoijse, . in rrga^d to it's own cHafactii; ' for 'justice, to take and mailifest interference witli the purposes of justice Bjit though the case w-is new, the offence wa* a very lixld one. In Lord Slrafi'ord's case it was manifest lhat he had been run down and condemneH by libels and clamour out of doors, tone hefoif I'i r mons would be inflnenced by such tra^li as�piienrecl in ihK Luminary. But this was not enoni;li ; llie.i-was the potentiality of the libel to produce mischief. It was not to hg^^ut>p lie did not utter any thing like an appeal to justice, or a reference to legal purii.limeiit. Lord Ellen-borout^h determined, in that very case, that !o ijre-suppose conviction inn trial was an injurious libel the DefendaMt. But here was a fellow prop^)^i^g the Queen of Eiiylaiid as 'a. fit subjnct f'lr whii-piiig, and hard labour in Bridewell. 'L'.rd Ell>-n-borongh deiioininaieii that libel as a,: |iuhlicai;n'i highly criminal, becaiHse it described the Plainiiff as a criminal and a monster. But here the accuseii, though Queen of ihese realms, was not nienlioned in reference to any trial. She wiis branded '.viiji guilt, and sullied wilh the foulest laiij�iiage wliich it was possible to apply to any human beiii-,'. Hf had another opinion to quote, of no less auihrr:tv than the former. Lord Hardwicke, in a civil sup, had committed a man for pubiishino; llie prncenl-ings (if his suit hef^e the cause came to be lied.'. And yet in this cjse it was inipos.ili!- f,ir iiijiir-,' to happen, as there wa.s no one's niiinl ti> ii.Hutn^ r, except the Lord Chancelim's, cou'i-c^cd wiili \if. decision of the case. Another aiillmnty whici. i e had to quote was that of a Ju(lg>-, no less iva'cli-fnl of the interests of justice than llie oili-r two. Lord Erskine had commiUKl a'man for writint; an abusive letter to a (lai'y eug-.^jeil in a su t^in the Court of Chancery. These wfrr; extreme cases, and he only invoked them lo shew the great force and extent of the principle which he was endeavouring lo maintain.- Another case which he^ quoted was iliat uf a libel ci Bignold, an excise o Beer, who had killed a man in the execution of his duty. While he was m prison waiting for his trial, a stuteriieiit was pi:l)-lished of the particulars. The Attorney-General had filed an information against tlie''publisber, and Mr. Justice Heath had declared that it was impossible that the charge cuuld be fairly tried after Ihe publication of that libel. Such wer� the first fruits of the little industry he htd been able to apply to the subject. He appcdl-eii to the belter ki.owleilg� of Members for tl'e protection of the privitr;ir-. of lliat House. lie culled on iheni lo shieldthe ilUislrious accused frm -the shafts of calumny, and afJbrd her that protection which the laws were generally found to lavish upon the meiinest agent of tlie revenue. If the offence should be consider^ as no breai;h of privilege, he would then move, that ihe Attnrn.ey-Generat should be instiucted to prosecute the author of the libel, which he had to subiiiit to the altijniion of the House. He concluded his speech by,moving, that the publisher and printer of tlindaWs iVesltrn Luminary shoaXA be required to atitjnd at the bar . of the House. The Speaker wished jo know uiider what cha-  racter the paper waslo be offeri;i| to the afteii^iop of t|iie Hoiise, whether MS, a {jreueh of P.flXjj?!?? pif not?
