On tho names being called, his Lordship liegged leave of ahsiiice for his Royal Highness the Duke of York on accuunl of indisposition. Joseph .Marielli appeared at the bar wilh a copy of the letter which had been rerjiiired of him by the House (the letter from "Albertonio, we bi-lievp). On delivering it, he lii'gjed leave to correct au ermr in his former stalenienl. He Had not received it by post, hut it came lo him by a private band(>n Ihe I6lh. Tlie letter was laid upon the table. The (x�uii.sel were then called in, and Ibe cruss-exainiua-lidnof ILaily Cliarlutle Lindsay was resumed by Ihe Solicitor. General. Her Ladyship remembered that tliere was a garden at Naples, called, we helicve she said, La V'elerina. She had walked one day in that garden-with hir Royal Highness, Bergami was pipsenl. Hnr Ladyship accompanied her Royal Highness from Najdes lo Riiuie, and w'a ihe window of Ihe carriage and saying lo liCr Royal Higlmrss, "d moij Madame.*" Her Ladysliip pprfectly ricidlecied in one part of the journey Bergami coming up to the carriage, afli r being called, and saying, " d 7nOi, liladavic'" There wire provisions in the carriage; The Princes.* gave him sonielhiug to eal, and sonielhing to drink. She had no ilistincl rrcolliclioii that It was after he was callril, biii she thoiighl it was. There was no circuinuance which eoahled her Ladyship to pronounce wilh certainly ; it was merely an inrereuce (trhicli she drew from hiT own mind, because it was more natural. She liad no distinct rtcolliciion one way or llie other. There Uas nothing in Ihe circilinsialire which struck her as al all re-markable. 'i'hero was a butlle of wine in the coai-li; she thuusht lhai Bergunii drjiikont of il; she believid that he drank utll of the bottle wilhutil a glass ; she could not be quite rerlain; shefaucieil lliat he rctiirned Ihe boitle ; she could not he certaiu in any way; the I'r.ucess and her Ladyship had been taking refreshineiii ; slie could not say wheihir Bergami rcluruitl li.e holile or lliiew il away; she ralher Ihoughl he relui-uerl the buitle to the C:irriagp. Her Lailyship had no dialiucl recollccliou of iiaviiig staled, after she had made up her mind lo ipiit iiic sc'ivice of her Royal iligliiiess, that ii was a greit relief lo lirr miuil lhat she had coine to lhat delerniiiiatiou of (luiltiug the service of the Priiireiis; she did not renieinber having si.iied anything to thai purpose or effeit. She iiiighl have staled it) but she *hich she bad made Ihe lattir. Her Indyship would not say positively lhat U viae not so, but she bad no kind of recollection of faaviit^ Slated lhat her rPBlgnation was iu consequence of H'bat the Sjlicilor-Geueral had then said, namely, that uo wuiliaii of tjuality^j wHt� t-egarded her character, could reiilairt m the neiviix'Of her Kojal Higbiieis.

Jixaihincd h{j ihe Earl of Donoughmore.-I wish to brlu^ il to the mind of the House and to the recollection ot your Ladyship the period of lime to which yon are enabled lo speak of the conduct of her Majesty. You Said you joined her Majesty ten or twelve days previous id her tjuilliog Naples ? 1 did. You said you were one night on thie joiirnty to Roiiie ? I did. Did your ladyship remain at Rortle Iwo days? Two nights and one whole day. Your Ladyship said you remained at Civiia Vecchia six days, and on board the Cinrijidc three rlays ? Yes. .Making allogelhcr 24 days only. Your experience, therefore, of the conduct of the Quern extended over 24 days only, and Ihe testiiniiny and opinion whicli your Ladyship is enabled to give is founded on the experience of 24 days only? In Italy. That is the part cf the Queen's conduct included in the Bill, and to which your Ladysbip's opinion is required ; Twenty-four days only ? Yes. During Ihal lime you observed no improprieties on the part of her Majesty iu her inlercourse Uiib Berganli ? During that time 1 observed no improprieties on the part of her iMajesly in her intercourse with Bergami. What part of ber Majesty's English suite remained with her Majesty; did Sir VVm. Cell? Yes; Sir William Cell was there. Did be remain with hef Majesty after she lefr Naples ? No, he staid al Naples on account of his health, which would not admit of his travelling to the north. Was the Hon Keppel Craven io: her Majesty's suite at the time Of your joining her Majesty at Naples? Yes. Did he also continue ? No; he also resigned. Was Capl. Hesse also in the service of ber Majesty at lhat time ? He was at Naples, hiit { aiii not certaiu ihal he was in Ihe servirt! of her Majesty. Did he qiiil Naples with her Majesly? No, he did nrtt. Then if he was ever in the scrVice of her .Majesly, he had thru cpiilled il ? Yea. At Ihe lime of those persona quitting Ihe service of her iMajesty, are you aware of any others joining ? I do not re-tullect. Bergami was then in her service? Yes. Did a sister of Bergami, named Faustina, then en let-her Majesty's service ? I am not aware of it. Do you know of such a person being present ? I do not. Do you remeniher Luici lierganti euleiing her Majesty's seivice at Naples? 1 am nut certaiu, but I think he was al Naples. Your Ladyship does not know if he entered her Majesty's service al Naples ? No; I am not eel lain. Do you remember the niolher of Bergami entering her Majesty's service at Naples? No; I never heard of her uulil lately. Do you know any thing of the lime of which the child Victorine was taken under ihe protection of her Slajesty at Naples? No. Ill answer tu a qhefltion just now pitt, as to your reilsons for quilling her Majesly's Rervice, you said you bad seen nolliiug improper in her iVIajesty's conduct? No, I had seen nothing liiijjrojier in ber [Majesty's conduct. Were ihere any report* ?-(trfiid murmurs in ihe House) Mr. Biungbam said, lo save the tiiiie of the House he (Vas ready lo ailmil that llierc had been reports, and I'^ise too of a very alrorions nature. The Earl of Donoughmore, and some other Peers, called " Order.'" The Lord Chancellor said, the House could admit no re-poits whatever. The Earl of DoUonglunore resjlmed his examinaiiod - Was there any other ciicunislance operating on your Ladyship's mind lo induce yoii to quit her Majesty's service, e.x. cept those you have tnenlioned? t bad Certainly seen Un-thing improper in Ibe conduct of her Miijesty, but there were repoi Is of so degrading a nature as to render it unpleasant lo remain in her .Majesty's service. Examined by Lord F'alkland.- Did you observe in, ber Majesty's conduct lo hermale and female servants any fami-liarily deriigalory to her character and situation ? No; her Majesty was exceedingly ailable and familiar iii ber conduct to all her seivaiils. Did ilmt extieed the condescension usually shewn by Ibe higher classesi in this country lowards their serviiiiis? I Ihiiik the manners of the higher classes in this country much more reserved lowards tfieir servants than that of foreigners, which is more unreserved ; and 1 think her Royal Highiiesd's manner was peculiarly so. Old her Slajesty's manners appear peculiar in that ftspect even to fiyteigners ? Of that 1 cannot speak. Did her .Majesty's condescensioii to her servants greatly exceed lhat shewn by foreigner's, according to Ihe opportunities your Ladyship has bad of observing fjreigii society ? No, not greatly. . WMu you said you had not observed any improper behaviour iu her Majesty towards Bergami, nor aoy imprOpiiety in Uergsmi's behaviotir towards her Majesty, had jo'ii le-feieiiee Iu that peculiarity of her Majesty's behaviour to which you have adverted'? I had. Am I to understand your Ladyship to say, lhat from thU uncommon deg'fee of familiariiy iu her Majesty's mahner, circumstances might have passed vVhicb in � person of �iore habitual circnnifpectiou and reserve, \�puld have appeared lo you exiraordiiiary and unbrcoming? 1 don't knuvr lhat any thing I observed wouldJiave appeared eiiber extraordinary or duliecoining. Her Majesty appeared lo talk to Bergami, as she did to Sicard and others iti ber family. ia';e on this counlry ? I did not. By a Peer/-Does jour Lorilship recollect at all the Princess being at a ball in Naples? 1 do. Was your LunUhip preseiii at that lime ? 1 was. Does your Lordship ir'collecl Ihe dress of hei- Ruyal Highness on lhat occasibn ; 1 do not. The Hdn. Jveppel Oavrn was tlie next witness called, and being sworii, was examined by .VJr, Denman. I beliorp, .'^ir, lhat iu the year 1S14 you weie iii ibe service uf her Royal.Hiphness the Princess of Waits as one of bet Cliambeiiains?

It i^as quite impossible to sluit'him out from proving tiiutives puie which had'b�^t^urged agaiusl her as criminal.
