He believed the Bill was withdrawn from no other cause but the strong appteheniiop that, if it went down to the House of Commons, the subofnation of evidence would be discovered. The smallnetsof the majority was not the true reason :whLch caused tlie abancloninent of the Bill. A majority of one expellf-d^ the Stuarts from the throne of Englandand the casting VQJ.ce of tlie Speaker of the House uf Commons decided the impeachment of Lord Melville. It was clear,that Zangia had been bribed ; and the evidence of .RastelU, w;hn'was no.t forthcoming when called for, �^had been dispruvea. With respect to Rastelli, he believed in his,conscience, H9 firmly as he believed in his creed, that he was sent away to, avoid J'arther investigation. -f Hear, hear. J,-This was not an after-thought. He had Slated his opinion three weeks ago id many persons then present. It gave hiin great pain to alter his opinion of Lord Liverpool; biitK^ thought, if his Lordship had retired from 6(ii^e''gix tnonths ago, his character would have-descended to poste--rity in a much brighter! light than it cptild now do. -fAfiplause.J I , , have made aiii iiiapifaSibn-i^veii-tori the i^aostioirriipt ^Mint).

Since then the- Bill liad happily been withdrawn. One of the purposes of the meeting,hadtheBill certainly passed, was to enlighten the House of Lords, some of its Members having declared that the people were' wholly indifferent .to the result of the proceedings against her Majesty. It .was thought necessary that the. truth should he made known to their Lordiiliips as to the degree and character of feeling which the British people actually entertained in regard to the whole of the measures taken against her Majesty. Under these impressions, it had beeii determined to prepare an Address, which, after being generally submitted to, and adopted by (he Chairm#a of the various meetings, and again submitted by them to the persons wlio had subscribed the former Addresses, might embody the united expression of the sentimeixs of (he British people ; and thus would be recorded, under the sign manual of as many individuals, the judgment of between eight and ten millions, who in all probability would put their names lo such an Address. These measures were rendered unnecessary in th'e judgment, of several of bis friends, by (he rejection of the Bill. It had been recommended, ill consequence, to postpone the meeting until other circumstances should render the interference of the public voice.again necessary-as that was a powerful engine, and one which ought not lightly to be put ill motion. He would read the Address which had been prepared for the occasion in case of the parsing of the Bill : and although that measure was now considered 88 unnecessary, it would still be necessary for the'public to relaiirthe same vigilant and efficient position m case of any other oppressive steps which might be taken against her Majesty; because the ministerial scribes, who were generally the avant couriers of aii}'- disagreeable measures about to be adopted, ^lill coiuinued to spirt their unprincipled venom against her Majesty. He then read the Addres* which had been prepared. Sir R. Wilson said, that he was one of the individuals who had Mgned the-requisition for calling the meeting, in expectation that the Bill would certainly pass the House of Lords^ in which case he thought that there would be nothing so effectual in preventing its further progress as to call forth the combined and simultaneous action of all the Committees from which Addresses to ilie Queen had proceeded, so as to bring forth an unequivocal declaration of theopinions of the whole population. As the Bill had been withdrawn, he conceived that measure need not be adopted, though it would still be their duly (o watch their baffled though not wholly defeated enemy. He was ready (o support any resolutions to which the meeting might think it fit to agree under the altered circumstances of the case. It would be wasting time to make any remarks on the nature of the late prosecution and -the character of its proceedings. Every body now �a� convinced of the iiiiquitoas character of those measures; 'nor would the public be at all better reconciled to them by the tears and distressed conscience, of tire Lord Chancellor, the judicial equity and' noble sense of honour of the Duke of Newcastle, or the pious consistency and^ -constitutional theology of my Lords the Bi'hops. Had the Bill passed_ into a law, he, for one, would'hav� preferred living under the despotism of Algiers; because such an act of oppression effected in a free State, was more Hiraii-liating than in a State to the inhabitants of which the dignified sense of freedom had never bi;en known. According to th'e order of Providence, some good had been produced out of the evil of that Bill, It had advanced the ckuse of freedom just as Hie invention of the vessel had advanced Colonization and civilization in America; it bad called into life and embodied the decayiiig sense of public spirit; it had enabled (he friends of freedom to assume these stations from which they would in future be able, in a great meajilre, to control events ; it had awakened the torpid and comparatively morbid principles of freecloni into active existence. But though they had scotched the snake, they had not killed it; the victory was yet to be completed. The .Ministers who had injured and exasperated the country ought not to beullotvtd longer toexercise their misrule, even if the King were disposed longer to trust liVs uffairs to the guidance of their pernictoos councils. It was imposdble ihat the people would'longer submit to the government of sueb an,Administration. Were not these.the same ^Ministers to, whom ihe^coiintry owed their pppre^-i iions,, their bordeusoiiie.taxation ; who had.refusell to,,inquire.inlO'the Mu!iche9ter,ma98acre,..who had thanked aiid^r^oarded the perpetrators of it; who v^ere'passing to judgment, and would in afeW 'day�r petbaps .inchriwriteJatheSf'Member for Westminster; ' for'ddihg'Ihat- whi�*l hInl-etflM'on bitti'i tlft? betae-j ployed in carrying into execntiim (be lately de'ea- d.l'l'^t against her itlostrioua mother ? Tr.e jieople oiere bound itot lo -relax (heir effort*, i>ut to kee|. i() toll activpy untit;iliejt had succeeded iii the r.-i-imliiion of tliete Miniiterii from office. He nobjest-�d hintaelf by sach rrimtflif to ihe obloquy ol!ae�.-. tint Resolutions the piurpnrt of whicii wi s tu �.-t rr\^ of the .Address which Rad been read, but m J" I .:c also-that under the present circomstalices it wrt*ii;)C neCessiry to Call for sigpatpres to it. Sir G, NoEf,, as a member of. the meeting, .and not as Chairman, wished to second tlie Rei-nlutiou. He had assisted iii railing the meeting, and ihi'mab he'had, not ^deemed it necessary to per>ist in the. the meeii'ig I'.'S nushi by .no means to be dependant oo what wouM be ilone by Ministers against the Queen. They had been successful in getting rid of the Bill-for surely the public were a considerable parly in bringing abfut that event. But they ought not to relax in th�t march of meeting which had'tlius been Opened to them. He would not be contented wilhont s"iiis . ir> the Qoeeo, if that should be resolved on, but by H Petition to both House* of Parli;irneri!, calling on them to declare, in some manner or other, that the proceeding by a Bill of l'a\tn and Penalties was unconstitutional, and to remove the danger of any subject of the realm ever benit^ vexed by the inslitulinn of snch a proceeding m future. Coupled with the pri>leclioii and safety of the Queen, which was now nearly perl'rcled, onulit to be the pro'eciion and security of every !.u^JfCl of the ."late from a similar prosecution in conii"t; time. He remarked one effect which tile Biil had p/o(luced : it had raised the individual i'li'i-raclei-of every man in the slate no irs� than llmt of the class lo which they severally beloimed. The " nation iif shopkeepers," as Bonaparte had CijUeil the Eiiglii-h, must now become a designation of considerable dignity. The sense of ihe proijle would ill future be the means of saving the Peer-' age from tlie effects of their own I'ollv, and rescuing the poor from their oppressions. He appreliended that the conduct of the House of Lords was to be attributed to their want of experience and renl knowledge, than to any peculiar vice in their composition or inclinations. He concluded by ret-om-mendiiig that the public should temper their' triumph with clemency and forbearance to tiiose whom they had defeated, and not use greater seve-^ rily at present towards them lhao the use of a few hard words, especially as the ratio ultima was always available if occasion should require it. Mr. Gast, as Chairoian of the Operative Mechanics, congratulated liiraself on having cnuseH the example to be set which had become the rule of conduct to the whole, kingdom. He was the first; working mechanic who had kissed the Queen's hand, at which time betook up an Address signed by 30,000 individuals. He thought it necessary for all parties to keep on the alert. The p-arts of the snake which had be.en cut asunder might unite again with redoubled strength and increased venom. It was his intention, as Chairman of the Mrch ini' Committee, to propose an Addresi to the Queen on her acquittal, and another Address or Petition to the House of Commons, calling on them tu inflict the whole of the expense of the proceedings I' on the Ministers of the Crown, and to cause their estates to'be confiscated if they were unable to pay it from their other prope'rty. The King also, if he were to believe the assertions of many of the Peers, was a chief pro.secutor. Indeed, .he must have been so, or he would not have taken oip his pen 10 erase the Queen's name from the Liturgy. The House of Commons should be directed lo sue the King and his Ministers for the costs of those proceedings, to be paid out of their private means. He^onlended to propagate the measure, and hs doubted not himself to acquire one hundred thousand signatures to the petition. Her Majesty had been called Queen of the Radicals,, by a vile hireling writer (Lewis Goldsmith), who had acted -ax Vicar of Bray to almost eveiy despot in Euroiie. Well was it for her Majesty that she had tuch subjects. Had it not been for the Radicals, who bad stock to her like her back bone, her polite aristo-Crutic subjects would have sactificed her long ago. He expressed his concurrence with the general o8-' jects of the meetiog, and gave notice of his intention to propose on Address to her Majesty, and a Petition to the House of Commons, lor the pui-poses before stated, at the Two Brewers, London-wall, at a very early period. Mt^. Hume (M.P. for Montrose) said, that no one could be more willing than he was to agree lo any resolution in support of the cause of the Queen ; Jjut it was necessary that they should consider w!Bt adopt any resoiuiion-. hto iany iipeVific ItJiC:, qr Qo.ntluct, further, llian �� (ioniiji^nd^tion ,cf r;(iieelingSj of the. descripiio{> irliicb. hejiadimeiitiooed j fprMlhooghi. it .was not ;
