Thu room at length b�raaie so full, that the Mdes and ends uppeared-as if the company were piled upon one unollier. The appearance of the us�eriibly was mo*l (gratifying, from the general (^i^play of resper-tabelily, and the ^reat numbers of hHniisoir.e, vi^ell- ^ diessed feinHles ivho were in uitendance. After one o'clock the company be^an to shew Some impaiience at the dehiy wliicli took place. Mr. I'eakson got upon ihetaWe, and said, that as the room was Very full, and the hour for taking ihe chair was past, and as besides there were several distinguished personages present, who were equal to managing the business of Ihe Meetijig, perhaps it would lie desirable to send n deputHtion, into tlie Cotnniittee-room, to inform the Gentle-ajjen there, Jhat the company would be glad of tli)?ir presence. He projiosed a liesolution to that effect, and that Mr. Bowie should be njipoinled to miike known to the Committee the wishes of the asi-embly. ' This Uesoliition being cariied, and the message delivered, in a few mii.utes Mr. Hobhouse was ushered into the room by the Coniinittee, and was followed by Mr, Hume, Mr. P. Moore, Alderman Wood, and some other Gentlemeu. Uii the molion of Mr, 1'ickman, Mr. HoBHODSE was voted into the Chair. It was almost unnecessary, he said, to give thetn any thing like a preliminiiry out line, or offer any observations oil the subject which hud brought toge-tlier such great and lespectabte numbers. It was unfortunately too well known What that cause was which had assembled the people together tu so many places throughout the kingdom to express ihtiropi-nions of it, that those opinious were uotv almost utia-itiiiioai�ly pronounced, Il might be necessary to observe, that Ihts Meeting differed from nil others which had yet been held wilh respect to the object of il. Other meetings l�ad been held previous to the time in which the accusations had been brought, or while the proceedings were pending against her Majesty, Hut now they were met, after the enemies of the Queen and the kingdom Jercmiab Dyson, Esq>'10 IQ JobaiHall,; Esq: : 20r 0 JV)n.

He could not say that there were no parallels for the proceeding in tiineH-they occurred, however, in very bad limes. And, after a pretty fair and serious perusal of the History of Er,gland, he felt safe in saying that the only parallels whicli hud occurred were those which Look-place in the reign o( Henry VIII.-(Applavse.J - 15ut even these weie nothtn�ii�rof tlie Hutts^yf Peers^, iind the nnfairnes-i '^C5''''l'ffiP'''S'fe--^*'^*''''*''^-"""'^ not^ olfeerwis? than TToiio'tifsSf^ iS "^iL/jg a%ci.^oi).- -IVHSr'-'^Peer, ff^Waa t�sked, being a NAblemaa, amSnof honour, more-especiallv if he were a Bishop toio-^ Laughter J- but would act wiili perfect iinpurtiatlty as n jmlge between man and man ?
