APPOINTMENT OF A FIFTH EXCHEQUER BARON IN SC;OrLAND. Lord A. Hamilton, in rising to I'uUil hi^ dn'y wi'.li resj-iect lo this luolion, felt that lliere cuiih! lino need of a prcfdce to shew the House the iiii|)(.trance of it, as it respected Courts of Justice "rnt r-aily. If such preface were neces.sary, the circiii;i-Siaiices under wliich he addressed ll;e Hoii^e-he meant the circumstances of distress under which the country was labmiriiig, and the genend character which prevailed as to its relnclance to notice public opinion - would he enough for his purpose. W iien he first gave notice of this molion, he was ii(|icd to make a i'etv preliminary remarks as to the oriier of time in which the queslion had come the House. It was about six years since ihese Coi;:-inissioners were moved for by an Hon. Friend ut his, to inquire into the business and emolument-') of Courts of Juhtice in Scolland. Tlie nuiticn was made in 1814, and in 1815 the Cotuinissioa wai appointed; and yet up to the time in � he v;rts Sfieakiiig, no one step had beta taken 011 the sug-jiffstions of those Commissioners-no mtr^snre had been adopted, or even suggested in the Hoasr. though many had been suggested by the Cotnim?-sioners. Most unfurtunale it certainly was It r them, that the first thing which they heard of rr-. lating to their labours was the carrying a tueusnr--into efl'ect against whicii tiiey had opposed their deliberate opinion-the appointment of an office cun-trary to their suggestions and the general seiise n: the country. He had last.year moved for the \no-duclion of theste Reports, and tiiougli the papen were not then considered of importance, from t;.^ contents of those papers ite hoped to make t; ; ; House see the futility of all that had been or ccui I ' be set up by the Noble Lord opposite (liie Lord Advocate) in defence of tlie appotntinent. Jt nofaullof the Commissioners lhat no one siij^gr"-tion of theirs, after five years labour, liad becom . a measure of the House. There was no b'aine t.i the Learned Lord Advocate, who had been Dnt.a short time iii^ofFice, and of course without sufticiei.c opportunity, and whom he wholly excul|)hte(l. 15u: tliere was great fault, if not culpability, in tlie predecessor of thiit Learned Lord, and there waj greater in the Ministers, who had so i::iprudcrt-liun which had before disposed of them, without the expense of inquiry at all. He felt his situation, in having to argue for a moment the impropriety and uselessnesS of the �(>poiiilmefit of a tiftt) liaron to be perfectly ludicrous- he knew of nothing more ludicrous tliaa .-uc-li Bii arguaief.i, except, indeed, that perhaps it might be placed next in ridicule to a former rtsolu-tiou of a Right Hmi. Geuileman opposite, .who cuu.sed the House to resolve that there was uo depreciation in the currency, while all the transactions in the country were, ifoing on under the im-plieii acknowledgiueut,, of that c^eprecialion. The appoiiitmeut in questiou wa* the first result of tigiit Reports which .had been made by the Cuiamissiui:-ers; and if the House did not stand by antl Siu^jport the Conimissiouers in condemuiog ibis rush ap- ;
