In aiiMnrt.i a qiicsiinn tr.ini Lord OAnNLCV.bis Lord-sliip said that the U-lter trnni Mr. Frere lit ({eiieral Moore wa-. iKit ninmi;; the (inpers on the tahtf, and hethumM'mist anv miiticii fur its j)riid!icii>'n-, fir the reasons already given on'a foinur day, luui wliicn he should stale more at large ulirnsuch a inoiion ..jinuld r-Miie nndrr discnssioii. Ill :;mbcr adverted to the case of the Duke of Iviuderilal'.-, in which the House thought it suflicieot to address his Majesty tliat the Duke might be remored ix-.m. his Majesty's Councils ; and-to t!)C old course of Pdrliameni, in which the simple niisikindiirt of Ministvrs was a CMgnixiblc mnttcr. In the present Instance, if corruption was iii.>t, disnnctly proved, yet there was evidently a depree of inalteiiiinn which Called for redre^^. In thr present praciiee of Parliaiueut, every d.sfmri ctior^c been con-sidcretl as Haljie to a ver.lict ^e which pressed the heavi(!sto;i (he Duke of Yoork, was one which roulii not fierDadft the object of a charge, that of Ivennet. If that case were admitted tu its fullest eAtunl^ it would undoubtedly prove thech.irgeof corruption in the DuUe of York ; fwr nobody could believe that the Duke would haveii�tcreslcd himself merely^hecause a letter was produced fi"om one individual, stating that he should be happy lo serve another* Mr. Greenwood himself did not understand it In this light ; and if this evidence was to remain linno-ticed on the Minutes, it would imjily, that anyone , who Manted preferment had nothing to do but to come ill the shape of a loan to the Diike of ^'ork. Without trusting to Ihe evidence of Mrs. Clarke, al'hough the Hon. Member had not that sweeping opinion of it which some Gebtlemen had expressed, there remained to prove the charge of corruption in the Duke of York, the evidi-ncc of Miss Taylor, whose thiracter had been admitted to be perfectly credible, in one of the able&t speeches that had been delivered on that side of (he House (the sp rtJh of Sir S. Iloniilly :) for it did not alfeel her credibility ihnt her father was confined for debt, or that he wn� in fli.-.f rt..�jed citcamstancc?-But independently of the rvi.lence of Mrs. Clarke and Mi-s Taylor, and putting cut of question the case of Colonel Shaw, and the exchange of Colonels Knight and Bro'ike, because they only rested upon Mrs. Clarke's fcsttmony, it was proved that the Commander in Chief had in six instances allowed Mrs. C'arke to interfere in the dispeniation of his office-had allowed a woman to make appli.* cation te him upon subjects of such high moment. The Duke had not said to Mrs. Clarke, " you had better tell yonr applicant that you arc an im, proper channel but, there is no oppnrtumty of apply for what you as-k." Upon the evidence of ifcc Dake's hand-writiii^-, the Hon. Member referred lo the practice of the llight Honourable Gentleman (the Chancellor of the Exchequer) i when Att�rney-Getieral,in the (rial of Judge Jolin-' stone, where the evidence depended solely upon comparison of hand-writing, and where so manv ; persons did not believe the imputed hand-writing genuine. So many |persons having been unable ' to say that this was not the hand-writing of the j Duke of York, the Hon. Vlcmber thought that putting MfS. Clarke's evidence out of the qncs! fion, in this instance she was allowed to interfere. the House that the eye of ptibltc expectation was ] The Honourable Member next adverted to the case directed anxiously to the result of their proceedings; . of Satruel Carter.
