DUKE OF lORK. �;Mr.LEAGH broiigiu up the Report cf i.ko Se-  letfrGommitteeappoiiitut) to inspect ih'/L�tter* proilu(St?d l)y Mr. Nichoil.s last night, and to re;�ort ' on Ihe same to the Conimittcie of Inquiry-into the ctttidtKt of'the Comtuajitier in Chief. The report Sfafedj that lite Seh-ct Committee had iuiipcctcd ' Jetiers^'MidjpJaceJ those-which f hey jjojisiik-r-etl'^Hcttssary to. the present charge, in a bundle liiai'ked '*'-A.". At the same ^iijie, they heggcd iiotto be considered- as pledged to the opittioii that these letters might be made admissible cvideacc. Oo the subject the/ reserycd their opinion, and subtniUed the matter vrith the letters to the Cora-mittec\)f ihe whole House- . . , . Lord FOLKST.Ox\E moved the order ofjhe day, for the House going into this Cora.itittcc.- After what had passed last night, he felt it neccs-s�ry to-offer a few observalious ia order to protect himself ftcm the ceiisiire, to whitih he had been subjected. In prosecuting the subjixt of these charges, his Hon. Friend (a^ he was proud to call hiio), had been more than once, and by iBdre Chan one person, stigmatized by the namq of "the Jccuser,^' aadiiistead of being allowed to pursue the line of conduct he wished, had been forced from that iiae, and obliged to eooferm himself to the mode pointed out by the professed atid Kdviscr of his Royal Highness the Du}ie of York. This he believed was'the only instance of such � vitriatioo of sound principle upon record, where a person in the situatioD of his Hon. Friend, was prevented from pursuing a-line of conduct not only consistent with the rules of every Court of Juslice, fcnt consistent with tho tules of that'IIousc. This, was not ihe only grievance of which his ffonoura-ble Friend bad to compiaio, and he begged it might bIso be held in the everlasting remembrance of the Hoase and the Country, that he had been pressed upon day after day, and allowed no interval of re-Jaxtion or of preparation fer his latter charge';. It was not rill within thiuse few daj^s that bo.YLord . F.) had ofi"'.Tfil himsct/.to assist in conducting t? e bubJ.nei.',. that he had eVen iieen alloiyed a moment's rc.>;!iiie from (he vast labour which rested upon his single hand. He wished the House and his Country never 10 forget, that his Honourable Friend had bten pro.'-ectidug this inquiry, with the threat of inr famy, niore (lian once denouncid, hanging over his head. . That ihrt-i^l haJ never been retracted, nor had any amends ever been made for using it. These were the general obsirrvatiolis which struck him on bvhalf of his Uon. Friend, whom he could not consider in any other light but as a person who had been harshly df^alt with, and cspirienced n�i-ther fniriiess nor justirc. lie would now state wliat he had refusii! to srbmit last ri^hf. Some days ago a persott unknown to his Kan. Friend had waiti-d upon hi:n, and iTifcrraed him liiat tht-rf. wero papers io (he hantls of anotlicr psrfy. a So!i-cifor ill (hi! city, whicti went slroiiijly ai,-H!ti->t thv. cti'.t.'u jtof the Ciimm;i-j'*cr in Ciii.f. i'hat the [K-ifjo in. whose hawds tiiiy..��.cTO_'*a.s yery uii-wjiling to produce them, but that ho^ tinTugTirit" possible to (icvisc sonia c�ue by which they could be got ut: L'pon this information hisKun. Friend, who had been told they came info the hands of the Solicitor Kf coast'qiieiiCc of .1 bankruptry, went into tijc City, anO tirst discjvtr'ing whr. the bauk-riipt vfasj by going to various Solicitors, soon aTtcr found him in custody th'.-papers were. Upon being applied to, he acknowlid>;cd he had the papers, but f-^presspd great UTiwiUinfjness to produce them. On biing asked the reasons for this, he said he was afraid his charac'cr would be implicated as an inf.irincr, or ihat his natna would be mixed wi(h those of olhcr wi(os?�se? who had been called to the Bar of the House of Commons, and hail acted in a manner nut ere-' ditable to themselves. lla also i-xprt'sscj his apprehensions, lest by delivering Ihem up im should give olli-nce to the Chancellor of the E.v-chequer, to whom he was under same bligalio!>. Upon this ^le (Lord F.) told him there could be no grounds for this apprehension, for that he would consult the Chancellor of the F-Xchequcr, who, he was sure, would cxjircfs a desire to have every t'lin.j connected willi ihis business laij ba-fore the Public. Another objection was, tlint the Suireuder uf these papers might injure him bi bis professional pursuits ; but tiie principal jet of all was, that as the question had been taken up as a parly one on the iVlinisierial side of the House, he wight incur their displeasure, and the displeasar? of his frieniLe, by bringing out a case hostile Ur the side tlu-y had taken.-{No, no ! merks of dix. anprobailon.) Of the force of this argument \\c (Lord F.) was thorou�;hIy conviaced^ not only from t!i� present iaiiiaure, Init from many others, in whirl'., thb!i;jli Gentlemen iiiiglit express thrSr disapprobation,.he kf.ew it tr. have invincihle in-.H'-tonce, and to prev;;'! on many oiuc-crs to with-hold infore:ation of mornc>;?, fr-.jir; the fear of cf-f*>nc!ing and ineiirrin!: the disp'ici:sure of (hose in power. The peison had very cat-.-.!idly told him, that (he pat.>efs were noi v.r.y; in his pusse.s-.-n them lo a friimi, bo destroyed, but sin-.jdy t�rt he ujijht bt^ able to say that he had them not. They ivere easily to be recovered, and he at k-U'^th a..'rei:d~io w.ait on the , latj-Sylfcitur General with them, state the case, and ask his aiiWce, not jKcfe^iionaily, but as a friend, whether he nu^i.t to shew them tr� hiJu ( L'ird F.) or not. He w.r.s then to see Lord F. a' 3 quarter past-three o'�lock^ to inform^him of his delerminalion; but on reaching the place of appointment, he four:d anofi-, sayipg, that he had not been aMe to see bis adviser, who was cuSagcd with the Master of the Ralls, aad consequently could not immediateiy resoivij wtiat 10 do, tut would let him know his intention as soon ^s poosi-!de. He liad stated all he kneiv cf this mat. ter, for the informatitin of the, which he, cjoincicling in opinion with the Chancellor of the Kxchequer, had thought the best course he tonlj firilow. It would be necessary to snminoa tiie Gtntlcmaii he alluded (o, for thoitgh he could not say, from bis own knowledge, thslit w:u connected , with the pcr.diug charge, yet he could say from the abstract of the contents made out by the Centk-. man who had si'cn these paper?, thut were highly insportant, and worthy of the most serioi;s attention. He did not mean to say that they con. cerned the Duke \>i York, but they concerned places upder Government improperly disposed of, and he (iould not believe that aiiy disposition to rcfitsie their production would arise on that ac .'count.' This stateinent he trusted had justified his : cddduct, and shewn how little he had deserved ihi ceiisure he had met with last tiight. Iu urder to prevent the intruduction of any irrelevant matter, he thought the best way would be to refor these papers to a Select Committee as was done'last uight, which would separate those that were necessary from those that were not, and present only the useful documents to the House. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER said, he could uot remain iu his place without ofFuriDg a few observatious on the very, extraordinary speech they had just heard from the Noble Lord. He could nut sit silent, and acquiesce ia these strong aspersions thrown out, not only upon some cf his Hon. Friends, but-upon the whole House .df Commons. * The Noble Cord had coru-mcuted in a novel and strange manner on. tlie House not adopting the line of conduct ^hich the Hon. GentJc.iian opposite (Mr. VVardle) bad wisli-ed to purstie in prosecuting this charge, aqd told them that he wiskeJ the House and the country to hoid it in everlasting remembrance. If it were la be held in remembrance so long, let it at ie*it be ;
