THE QUEEN, Lord DitcaE liii()ed lie fniglit be permitted, witliout ivuvliig given any previous iiutice, to present a Petition to tlitir Lord>liips, which, as beini^ in his cipiiiiiiri properly expressed, lie fuficeived it, to be hia duty to sulijijit to llieir coiisuieratioti, Tiie Petition was finiii her Miijesty the Queen, He Unienled that this Petition, coiiiiiii; I'rom so illu*-liioiis an individual, dill not iiiul its way to llieir Lordsiiip-.'table lliroufih the inediura of t'ne, but as il iv;is ottered to hiin lie felt it to be hi-i duty to prefeut it. He should, when the Petition ivas read,-pinposciiich measures us were required in the Petition, and in which he hoped he should have their Lordship*' concurrence. The Petition complained of the mode of proceedijifj which their Lordships were about to iiislitnie by means of a Secret Couimillee, and of the difficulties thrown in her Majesty's w�y for procuring witnesses iiecessary for lier clcleuce, and further eomplniiied of the uid'avouviihle impression which llie Ileport of a Secret Committee was cjU ciihited to produce upon the miiids of the peoplts of Eii;;Und. The Noble Lord then commeiit,ed upon the ev.l const-quences which mu-^. flow from the Secret mode of proceeiliiig against which her Majesty prolesteil. The public feeling ao.tinst it was iiotinioiii, and it was but too luanileat that tlie appdiiiinieiit of the Coniiniitee was ahiij^ether In the hands of Ministers.-[Hear, lifar,-Indeed home Members of the Commillce had already expressed their opiu'iou np^n the subject whieli was ' I.o be !Uil)iiiitl(.(l to their investigHiion, The jiro-"ceediiiij liy Secret Committee had been likened to that befiire a Graiid Jurs ; but what would the public think uf 11 Cotmuivlre, on wiilth were four C'ltlihiet iiiini.'tlers, who hud already expressed tiieir opiniiin (ipiiii the mntter There were tivo Reverend Loiil.?, of hii{li character, who from their situation and profession ili-inuuded and onlaincd the respect of the connuy. Tiiey tiinl coii-corrnl in advi.>iini; the Kiiii; to exclude her Pilaje�tv from simrinjr the prayers of a pious people, anil It was tmpnssilile that they c'ould liave done en lijd they not been impressed with a belief that her Majesfy'a cidiilufl had been of a nature to justify so public a cenvure. Set they, too, w.!re Members of tiip Secret Coni-inittee. One of these very Ri'verend Prelates (the Archbishop of Ci'iuterbury] was, as he understood, the responsible person by whose ailvicc the name of the Queen had heen exclndeil finm its place in the Litnri^y. He would not ^o lltroUi�h the names of the other i\Ieinber.s, who, no doubt, were all men of unblemished character, but it so haiipened that ilieir feelijigs upon all public C[ueslioii8 had a decided inch nation to the Minsters oft he Crown, aiijiwhose bias was j^fciierally com^eived to be atjuiiui the illustrious but unfortunate individual acciued. He iiD}jlored their Lordship.s to consider of the ileep interest ami anxiety wiiji which the proceedings in this case wi're viewed by the public, and that they would fuillier consider (uiw far her Ma-jesty had u claim U[juii ihe justice wliich was due from every Eni^lish ;;, not to t)rocee' bar, � 'rjie Lord CuANcEl.tjore expressed much surprise that the Noble Lord should seem in-his speech to reflecc upoir his coniluci for not having presented the Petition. He wished lo stand clear upon this point, lit owed a duty to every suhjt^t of the realm, but he oweti one still fjrt'a'er to the House, and he could assure the Noble Lord that lie iind iulamed for not preseDliiig a leltet to Ihe House from tile same illu�irioiis individu�l* It wan his wish lo lia-rfe suhmitted it to the House, bat on Itiokiu*; into the Journals lie felt that he should not beobseririii^ the furnis of the tloHse I if he w�re to 'Couneitt to it. He had no objection whatever to thirijgetition if pr*sented,.;by a Noble Lord not on t^e" iVool�ack,.,'iwt he wuts obliged lo decline preserftjiig- if ^lot. hii'Viir^, three minutes to catijj|}>; it, uridbeiiig desirous to observe as mtjch ti^iii iiim lay ibe fotiBS and priiclice of their LordsliM!tioose. If lie erred, it certainly was not out uH^iVy, disrespect to-(he illustrious ill-' dividual. He dStilii" en'ertniii no persoiiiil feeliugn tt^ainst her, aiid^:he'*ould ratht?r suBvr.debtli than' iiifrini^e u|x)n the .'great pfliiciple of the Coiisli" tion, which dislii>i;uished accusatiuti from guilt. Earl Grey-Nn one was more disposed than he was to oive the Noble and Learned- Lord on'Tlie woolsm-k the fullest credit for-a faithful dischar^je of hi� duty, and he was couyinoed that, nuthiitg but a sense of what l>g owed to, llie' HoiUssti prevented' him frpm ^'irese^fiitg the- Petiiioiu. But m�kti�^. this adiiiissioii,. he must differ from i/ie Nobfe'Lord; fii iihaginiii;!; that siftin-j on the woolsack he was invested with a peculiar clniracter winch di�ti4t-^uislieil his duties us a Peer �f Parlianiettf from th'use that appertained tu every oihfVr Noble Lord in the Ilonse, and il was not cqm|>etent for l)ie Learntd L"rd, no more than any other Member of the Huuse, to de'cline presenting the Petitimis of any of his Majesty's subjects, who expressini; themielves.with propriety and respect, either compUiiied of injury or de-miiuded redress. FeeliiJff strongly that the doorS of that House ought to be ihro'Vu open to all I'e-titio-jers of whatever rank, lie sliould say^ that had litis l^elitiou been offered to hitn, even tUougli he had not three minutes to consider of if, he should not, igkjorant ns thank Gml he wa� of the merits of the ca-e, huve hesitated a moment to present it.

Her Majesty cfiaTTenteS the most minute inve�tigalion into her couduri, but she protestx against the mode of-secret jiiquiry; and if Ihe House of Lords proceed in such a niaunrr, the Queen cannot but consider il as coulrary to every principle of law and justice.- 'the Queen, however, thinks it right to declare, that even from such an uuconslitutional mode uf procedure she apprehends no danger, unless it be instituted before she shall be enabled to prncure Such docuufents and evidence from the Cuutinent as will expose Ihe machiHalions lhat have been fornved against her. Hrr Mujesly is anx'rous that no uuMecescniy delay shonid be interposed in the way of the fullest iuvestigation of thir matter, but ^lie protests Bgaiust any inrjniry carried on willioul her presence, or lhat of her Counsel and witnesses. The instant lhal her wit-nessea arrive she will en>treat the House of Lords to proceed iu any way their Lordships may think proper; but before any preliminary proceeding be instituted,her Majesty desires to be beard by Counsel at your Lordships' bar this day." The Petition being read. Lord D'acRE rose, and after obseiving that he had not even three minutes to consider of the object of the Petition before he found it necessary tu present it to their Lt)rdships, and had, therefore, no time to enforce the�rg.�-'nients contuineci in it, the Noble Lord moved. " That her Majesty's Ciiuiisel be�oic called in," The motion was immediately put from the'Wool-sack and carriedi mmine dhsentiente. Counsel were then called. A few minutes elapsed befiire the Learned Gentlemen appeared. The delay was occasioned, we understand, by the uecesi>ity of calling Mr. Brougham from the House uf Commons, where he had but just concluded tSc. eloquent speech in fa-vmir uf his illustriouJI cireol. Ciiuniiel being agaih called, .Mr. Brougham, Mr. Deiiman, and Mr. AVilliams appeared, and ud-vantetl to the bar. Mr, Brougham then addressed the House. He said he had the honour lo attend their Lordships as Counsel for her JVlajeSty the Queen, undrrslanding that it was their Lordships' pleaaure that Counsel should be heard at Iheir bar in her Majesty's behalf. It might be more conxisteut with what he owed to his illustrious clitnt, if, feeltng^ the interests lhat were involved in this proceeding, and deeply sensible how feeble wer� such powers as he possessed to sustain Iheir magnitude-if, under this conviction, he were lo entreat their Lordships for a few hours delay, to obtai-- the necessiity preparation ; but lie was commanded Ky his ilbistriens client lo encounter any personal inconvenience with regard lo himself, and run every riJk with reference to herself, rather than throw anjr obstriiclioii in the �vay of inquiry in whatever way their Lordships might commuud. It was more incumbint njion hiin to this statement to their Lordships, because it was important lo the interests of lit-r iMajesty to impress upon their Lordships that the application now made not for the purpose of obtamiug delay in the vulgar sense of the word, iiiii that the Queen desires delay-not for poslponiii^ any investigation commenced, cr prosecuted in the ordinary course, nor in the pronouncing of any judgment consequent tipon such iuvestioation, because her Miijesty must feel that such judgtBent would be one of lionoorahl-e acquittal, for she knows that she is innocent, and that their Lordships are just-but the Queen desired a delay, because every principle of law and jiisiii-e must be set at defiance if the Hoifse refused her prayer. Her Majesij-'o conduct was called in question-and, so he had a fight lo ajsume fioin the votes of both Houses of ^Parliament, Was made the subject of investigation. :The King's Message, as from ^hs same soutte he was enabled lo collect, formed the foundation of this proceeding, and with it had been coinmunicaied u> both Houses several papers, wliicli, us.h't^ Mujetitj; declared, related lo the Queen's conduct while abroad. \Vhat tlie nature of the lesliinony was upon which her Majesty's conduct was arraigned - by what means it had been collected-how it had been scraped together-K-who had lent themselves as tools 111 scraping and arrni^ing this leslimony, as it was Called by a figure of spe(?ch-by wdpui they had been instigated and rewarded for this low and sandalous proceeding, he did nut' pretend tu 4now, bot-whatever was found in the bag laid upon Ihe table of both Houses Was meant and intended only to impeach the cliaracier o'f the Qdeen, �and lo contain charges of what was done, or iidsely alleged to have been done abroad by Ifr M.ijrsty. Their Lurd.ihips were aware tlrat tlie ij*ieen,ilur-in(j her re.sidence out of this cOtinlry, resided at a great distance from it-the Alps and ihe Appeiiines being at one peitot alone f-ii' producing evidence to repel cl)ar.ge8, but also lor the purpose of enaVUn^ h^ .Sl�j�sty anil her Counsel to cross-eMniihe �jtBe?B�� *ho might be producer! against, her. ' He astT^d linw it wouM be jjossi ble to 'CMisSTeXBiDiBe ; thos^- tcrefcAes ?-;ie begged tlieir Lordships' pardon-those fersonnj^ei who might be broTjgbl forwuwl to accuse lier, wiih-out being .apprised of tjieir habits, character, and principles. In deiBai>Aiigthi� delay, he desired it should not be said tliei-e,: nor whi�pered elsewhere; by those who dared not'to say-H, ther^ utnong hor nourabfe men, lhat lie was adl^ancing the pjea of ^ilt. fii* pie* WHS that ol' inub.croce, for tlie . more iunocetjt the'Q'ueeir, the more rile her Calntn-iiiators, and the more liecessary was it for ht-r Majesty to biing forward sucfll evidence as rould repel llie charges urged a;jainst her honour, and coli led such leslimony'as must DverlvlltUu her accusers. - When tiieir Lordrhips reflected upon one peculiarity iu this painful proceeding, which, however, *�a8 not to be attributed to the Queen ;,�>he� tliey-reflected Uiat when any Engliahman', or his Wife, or daughter, was to have his, her, or their chaiiicteis sifted npou any alleged impropriety of conduct coitimitted in Englaiid ; wlieu they reflected, in order lb.�t to counteract the perils to which tUeir cliaracters might be exposed, there were terjaiu great safeguards secured to them by tiie principles of theCoiislilution. The first shield was, thai all the witnesses produced against the aci-used would be Englisli, bound by certain principles of moral obligation, ackiio�ledging the validity ol an oath,^ aiiil feeling that iu> power on earth was capable nf relieving them from its influence; giving their l^sti-mofty in the face of their country, oiiti in itie presence of tiieir friends, neighbours, and aCLju.nnt-aiice-not fiireigntrs, wjio perhaps might (eel from circumst-Aticea of a religious character that oathi taken here exercised tio binu'mg iafiuence upon tiieir coiisicienices (am! there were many such)-re-strninrd by no principle of mural proprietw. ani feeling no control arising from the presence of persons aequ-ainted with tWir previous conduct and character. This iuvolvea ii second safeguard, wliicb was derived from the knowledge of the wimeases. They were kiiowir to Ihe Jury, the parties, or the persons presetii, and the public press would coin-� muiiicale to those nut present tlisir demeanor and appearance. Their Lordships should also leflect; that an Englisli ptrsiin so accused h-ad also a. safeguard in beinj^ eniitled to a compulsory pretess to secure the altend-anca of witnesses. Tliey muit come into Court, and no powej, no intrij;ue was capable of ptevenluig their appeaiance. Uut how stood the case with her Majesty All the w-.u-ess" against her were foreigner.-, who pu.->ibly Ironi Ctr-tain habits of mind or perverltd priiicipirs, ini-!.C hold lightly the sacred obligation of an oaili, iney were under no control, and might give free uttei-ance to every evil iibpreviioti of their liunds. spoke in tlie presence of meii u? biave. >-hi'j)_ = �'.> thing affected themselirei! pers'onnlly, a? ill'? Captain (ijie Dnke of Wellington) whom iie iii-d the honour to address, but wUeti Ihe ht(!!OU.r pfthifir wives or daughters were concerned, ii did liieni hc-nour to tremble for the possible consequences. H-i-AJajesty had no "power to compel the aitendauce of her witneste.s who resid.^d [jrubabiy in dift'^ret^t parts of the Continent, who were bound to litr br no tie but a Sense of what was due to ju.stice, wjio had formed with her perh-jp� only a casual or passing acquainlaHce, who were under no influence eiflier of her spies or agents, who from laziness in* difference might hesitate to undertake a lediou?, dangerous, and expensive journey for one who had no means either of rewarding services or (.f gralifyipij ambition. Yet they were to be collected against those who were drawn together by force, or I'ear, or bri-beiy, and who for these various motives were ready to give utterance to every riiutignity and falsehood. Such being the case, he asked what must be the fearlessness of that illustrious Persomige when she roiumunded him lo say, " Let the priit,eediiii;s go on, only allow me the orcliii.iry ind'nigeiices whici* in ibis country are usually tjranted to every persor� accused." Il w-js however Ins duty, and if lie neglected it, it wag lire tUny of others wlio wt-ie bound hy^llie Jiidjjc's oulli to see ju-lice done-it was their Lordships' duly to see that juilice was secured, and that her own fearlessness and coiifciousness of innocence ought notlu be tiikiied to her Ma^e^lj's pre� judice. If he happened not to be well acquainted with the characters of some nf these wiines-t-'. the necessity of giving sufficieiit lime for irrquiring into them would be mjiilfcst, but. the knowledge he had ut' some only rendered him the more desirous of learning more. He spake not to Ily e.irs, but li-i lawyers, and lie begged to ask how it ivas possible-to crosi-examine any wiinrsses without knnwini; something of iheir characters ? He -ould put th'e> cise of one witness who been tarnerl otf by her Majesty for haying stolen four hundred Na-. poleons. Such was one cf her accusers, and did not a knowledge of this circumstance shew the necessity of searcimig carefully into the conduct of the others ?
