Uis.Lordsbip then proceeded to read a case which he had stated, to be submitted to the Judges fur thein opinion on the point, and moved that the judges shuitld now be asked their opinion accordingly. Mr, Brougham immediately rose and observed, that possibly what he was about to say might supersede the necessity of submitting the- points to -the Judges, and so far contribute to saving their Lordships' time. He was univil-ling at all times to complain of any use or abuse to which the public press might be converted; but; as a minister of this C>uurt, he felt it bis bounden duty to bring a publication of this morning under the notice of their Lordships, fur the purpose not of puuishment> but.of warning. In giving'tfae evidence of yesterday, one of the Morning Pa|>ers had made a most gross, and he- sboald add, flagitious mistake. In reporting the re.examidalioii of tbe witness Sacchi, be found tlie following staled aS part of what bad occurred:-" Did auy^conversation take place between tbe witness and Marietii relative to his being a witness against tbe Queen! When be told Martellii that be was igqing -OS a witneess against the Priticess, Marietti told bim that Mr. Brougham, brother to'-her Boyal Higliness's Counsel, had said be would bestow favours on those who would not go:"--a statement perfectly unfounded, charging tbe person wliu stood in tbe honourable relation of Counsel to her Majesty, with tampering witha witness, to induce bim to back his^ testimony. : If .he bad .tniscondocted himael.f in the mannerrepresented, theii either, there was. an end. of their Lordships' privileges, or 'ibe proceedings ought to be suspended, and that.person called , to ;jtbe,faprto explain all the part that he had taken in tbje.transaeiibp. Bat nothing of the sort had beep said. ..The .Honoiirable^ and Learned Gentleman then reaid. the an�vir^:�rhirlt.,bad in. fact .been given by the witness, yix,,.^'iMaHet,ti cameil'o me in tl>e morn-,{ log, and told me that aootbierMai^lelti had told him that Mr. Brougham, the brother af:ttie .Counsel for.lVer Majesty, bad told him that he was a witness; ;^nd he,Baid:that he iisd received some'favoura.ofrtbelvro brothers, and the wj'toess was then going to statesometbiogfurriiei-^benbe (Mr. Brougham) stopped him and objected. - ;He ,wi>uld.put it to ',any: man, whether any ,mQre^,gross,,srandalbbs,. or flagitious, statement, respecting Ibeproceediugsbfrany Court of Jnslice, had ever.been made.: iIfl.;,lhij.t!:f�;mip was;.ajid ibe. was oolinra that .U;'�a�.'t9t.,;ftojB �li�lt,iiefj '|)o'urce, that.

" prOvisibna' tetter,' h^ had' told the Leaiiied Counsel ihiif'nb sb'ch intention' had'ever been entertained, and thai the indi+N dualin question had the perfect sanction of the'GbvCro-ntenlto remain, in the country. He did tbink it his duty to confer avthis subject with another individual, but it was propir fol4iim to state, that he never bad mentioned it Io his Majesty's Attoruey-Gegcral; and if tbe circnmslauce had come to his knowledge it must have arrived by some Other channel. 1 Lord Melville wished to state what fell within his know. Isdge respecting another transaction refsrred to by the T.,earned Counsel, leaving tbeir Lordahips Iheo to Judge of the correctuess of that stateineul.' He would go so far as to say, that if any application were to be m^de on tbe part Of the Learned Gentlemen engaged fur the Queen in this pro-ceeding, it would be the duly of those to whom such application were made to pxrrt every means iu tbeir power for the discovery of the troth. With respect to the particular circumstanT, PKjvas therefore of opinion that ibe examination ofthe witnesschightJio be proceeded in, otherwise no cause 4>oold be safe, or no witn'ess. The justice of the case qpuld not be got at unless the whole conversation was explained. He could not understand how a cohv^'rsation between two peri'piis could be explained if their Lordships did not hear the whole of Ihe conversation, and if they refused to 'do so, it would he laying down a dangcrons 'rule. Was any person bold enough to say, lhat iii a Court of Jus-lice witnesses were not allowed to explain away 'what they hail before given inevidence? It was but shortly^since the questioii had been submitted to him. Hehad no ciises ip quote, but if longer time had been given lo him he was convinced he could not have found any, as the precise question never liadbeen snbmiltrd to the Judges before. No mau bad a higher opinion of the laws of theconntry than be had,.but he If as of opinion Ibal the examination of witnesses was tob narrow, and therefore ought not to be more narrowed. He ' regretted Ibe inisfortune of differing from his brother Judges, but he was bonnd lo say that tbe witness ought lo answer tbe question. Baron Garrow said, that after .having given the question much consideration, he had come to Ibe same opinion as his brother, viz. that the question asked was too general. He declioed troubliug the House with any'arguinent. Mr. Justice Burroughs briefly stated, that be agreed wilh his brolbers Garrow and Rrcbardsoo. Chief Justice Dallas would abstain from stating the grounds of bis opinion which agreed with that of his three Learned Bruthrrs. ' Mr- Baron Graham and Chief Baron Richa,rds came lo the same concliisiou. - , �.. The Chief Justice, in delivering his opinion, said, that no matter could be inquired into in a re-examination, which was mutter of Ihe cioss-ex.aminatioh, As.lo couirersations not immediately con,i)ected with -the case, and yet having taken place between spaie of tbe parties,'he idivided' the subject into two case's-that of a converkatibii which ''ihigbt have taken place' betweeii the witness aiid'qiue of the par* lies in.
