YOUNG. The Lord CHlJiCELi.oii having desired the assistance of Ihe twelve Judges in tjiis wiil of error, the Learned .fudges . allended at one o'clock. The |>otnt in dispute is, whether a bill of Exchange, nihde payable at Ihe bankiiig-hnose of Sir Jphn Perring, nut being presented on the il.iy it became due, exonerated the aLCe\iior from all li.tbilily. The J.^idges uf the Court of Cnminon Pleas held il did. On its being brought before the Cyui-t of King's Ueiwii. the Jnilges there, in Lord Ellen-burough's lime, held il did mii, as the making it payable at the hanking house was ii, to eiJaiSiijie the paper*'which have been coiiiinnni^ cattd'tb the' Houne, and to report ��!iat further (yoiirse of proceetbhg -it may iieeiti dt to ailtvpt. �ThiseoBfse apjienra to tof to be most un'alo^nus to pi'ecideiiii',' and liiost cotisislei't wjtfi the import--Jiice of Ite sttbjeclj and'10 that 'htiuW wi?h to sny as little as posjdbie, ,any own opinions  iftiiiy b'.give their' opinion to the House upon the .prop)iety ami expedifency of any uhimate |)Tnceedi'iig*^> anit iiau the c.iuse of jirtiVrce be advaiiCetlif* to' these Loril's gome four or edly (lave li'ee'ii a variety of o'cca(.ioiis iu'which Secret .Conimitteei liave been employed, when .certain peculiar coiisiderations rendered sUrli a mode of proceedin.g necessary, ttn'd. when I^arliument. for the avoidance of one evil ((.tupped to another of Sonie-��hat less inaguittjije-^for a Secret Committee is ill itself aii evil.-(Hear, bear.)-But not oae of ihose. ronsiderttlTuiis applies to the present case. Secret Comiiiittees have been ein-|)loyed,when (oiispii'ui:Me8 have come to the know-letlge of tlie Qovernlnent, anil it might not be advisable for the ptihlic service to-let the circumstance's of the ciise uiid the names of the conspirators transpire. Secret Cotiimitteej" liave- been employed when thei cases refetred to individual^ witioiii^ it might' iiot be eSpedieiit'^o'apprise of tlieir 'beirig placed in a state of accnsatioii. They have iilsu been employed with regard to the affairs of Foreign Stales, in cases involving thi; iiaiioual characlt'r or policy. Bnt does any one of tlieS'e coiipiderations apply to the firesent tase, as being tiecessnry to conceal either the nadies of persons, the character, or the situation of the witne8.se8 ? If the concealment of the circumstances alone were the object of the present course, this might be attained merely by excluding strangers from below your bar; tJhd you would thereby prevent the means of publicity. Even from free from the possibility of stain or reproach. V'oOrr l.,oi-iU1iipS oug4it also to'coti.sider, that this-feelings, of the public are upon this subject' eiireiriely irritable; and how much tnust they be increased, if, in a matter so deeply iiileresling, recourse be had to any extraordinary or inconsistent course of proceeding.' The Noble Marquis briefly recapitulated his arguments, and sat down aniidst cheers froth the Noble Lords around him. Tlie Earl of Li'vEapOOL then rose, atid said-^ I rise, ray Lords, under considerable difficulties, because', frorti the peculiar circuiiWtances of this case, I feel myself precluded from entering into a full explanation of the motives that induced his Majesty's Ministers to pursue the course 1 have now suggested. 1 trust, however, that without going into that part of the subject, I shall be able to give a full and satisfactory answer lo the objections that have been made by the Noble Marquis. But first, 1 mint excuse myself to your Lordships for not pursuing the course which the Noble Marquis, and perhaps oilier Noble Lords, think 1 ought to have followed. But if it be fitting at all to refer tliese papers to a Committee, "it would have been most improper for me to suggest what I might tliltik ought to be the Report of that Committee, and the mode (jf proceeding which should be ultiiaately adopted. BtitI come now to the rno're substantial and important objection, which is, that as a similar Message-has beeti sent to the House of Commons, an impeachment might be ordered by that House, apd your Lordships ih'iight, in that event, have to"" perform the judicial duty of hearing and determining this impeachment. Such, I believe, was the Noble Marquis's ubjecllon. I feel au extreme difficulty in treating this subject, because to make myself intelligible, 1 must assume tlve existence of guilt, where such an assumption ought' l-lie'feast to be admitted ; but T niiist be liio'at distinctly'uuder-stood tu speak hypothetically in whatever instance I may seem to impute actual criitjinaliiy to her Majesty.- Hear, Zi'ehr.'j-I have no di^cultyio saying that if the circumsfahces of the c^se warranted the conclusion, I should iiot only a^ree with the^oble Marquis, but even go farther,/ar - had jhere been emdence of high ireasan, I should not have reconi-mended the referring of the subject eveii to the H,ouse of Commons. The Law Officer* of the CrottTi;, in " such a case, ought to proceed against the. Ooeeu, in due course of law, and such, in my opinion would he the oiily fit course 'to adopt. But siippohiiig ihil her Mn^ jesty the Queen had been giiilly of ttie act of difol-tery in a joreign coahlr;/, and that this could be proved by evidence superior to the possibility of doubt, it yet woald riot, as I have been arivisedibe considered high treason by the laws of this tountry> and was Hot cognizable by anv English triblii>al. By the statute of'l5d?'aid Ilh'lo violate the wife of thi; King\ o*^ nC the Heir 'Apparent to the Crown, or of 'the King's eldest'di�5each'ment. A Learned Lord opposite, as I underalatid, once suggesieir the propriety of making adullery an indiciable'ftsent question. Upon what possible groiind then can an iiiipea'chtneiit be broui;ht ? If the opinion 1 have stated be not correctly formed, I must agree with the Noble Marcjuis, but T'thiiik I have shewn "that the (axce. of his objection is founded " in error, sod that no 'ri:roedy can be lipplied to this case except through the raediUm of the Legislature. Ill a Case so anomalous and so important where ii� precedent can be found lufly to apply, I think it safest and best lo refer the iniitter at oiice tj a Secret Cuijimittee, thali that Ministers sho'uM co'mii down, and', without any previous inquiry, propose a Bill uf pains and penalties, or any other coni-'e which they ipight approve, lu all former cases t.f paiiiii and penalties, the Bill.1 ongiiialeil in Secret Coinmiitije.s, and even if such a Bill we're sent uj from the other House I'iJV yuiit- toucuVrencr, yOnr Lordships have yet thought il expedienl tu propot� a Secret Ciiinniittee to examine the evidence on which It was founded. The Noble iMai'quis says, thai, the Ministers inust Icnow their own intcntion.s, and b'eViig fully acquainted with all the circumstance's of the case-, must be better qualified tliaii a. Committee lb Suggest the best mode of proceeding. Tliis Blight be saiil in every case, and more especially in case's affe'itjiig conspiracies against the Stale, ih which tlie Ministers were generally ac-quanted witb much more than they cuiild deem ic expedient to make known, even lo a Secret Committee, and if in siich cases the House would so act, why should it hesitate to pursue u similar course in tlie present instance ? Besides, what mode of pro'cecdjng can be more delicate or ruspeclfut than lo submit the matter Xa t) Secret Cointnittee, leaving it to such Cuiliiinittei: to suggest whatever mode iniglit be ultioiaiely adopted ? Lord Holland remarked, that ihe Noble Earl had wasted most of his time in admitting the force of the objections made by his Noble Friend, The Noble Earl said, that upon this point ije hud received legal opinions of high estimation, but of this the House could know nothing, nor of the probable cdnteills of the papers recommended lo their consideValion ; but litis they knew, that^ the King had been advised to 6end a cotnmunicatioi) to Par� liament, and that &t this very moment the great inquest of the nation, was engageds. in tdiscuasint; the proper means of exainiuing it. How was ic possible for the Hotise to know what cotirse of ptoceeding the Committee of the Hdiiaii of Commons would suggest ; or how presume, from the nature of evidence which' had not been opened, that an injpeiiclmient would ijot be recoiomencled ? He could not agree with the Noble Earl, that in the rd tliea.rommenteiJ ^jion tlie nliVlike the .^fieopie of ,U�� 'couiitry ever-^^jiiHCetl-JtowuriJs Sircret Coiuiniliefs,.vylnch i�4aso #trjo1ig, ttmt-fuitbeir niiuds a Se?'i^t Cooatnittee ami � grertt-bag �. weT� always B��hcifii*tl w>'(tl�- the ideas of injuniee^Thfn! now "jijli^flKjJ vi�on .tHi?
