But (he lloufe hid another duty to perform ; they had to take care that a pubi lie oflice was not filled by any person liable to suspicion. All this was done away by the Amendment. The Right Hon. Member knew liiat the Right Hon. Gentleman meant to propose nooMier Rtsblu'ion; and he in candour acknowledgcil he did nof. If he carried tliis Resolution, he meaut to incorporate it info the A'.lJress, and carry the whole to tV.e King. So that while every tnind in the kingdom had been heated and torn with this subject, this House would be the only [ilacc where no opinion was to be found about the tnattir. They were to embody this Ris-lulion into the A4-dress, and th-jn to conceirc they had done their duty. The Address not only ilid not go far enough, but it went too far the other way : not only it did not propose to remove llie Duke of York, but it suggested the propriety of retaining him. The Right Hon. Member hoped (he House wjuld bear in mind the intention of the Right Hon. Gcnilf'nian as lo this Address, in the event of his carrying his present Resolution, .ind not go too hastily with him. {Hear! hear! ficdrl) Ttie Right H'>n. Member then proceeded to comment upon the Duke of York's letter to the House, which, he said, was evidently (he protliiction of the Cabinet. The Right Hon. Genth-man had stated, that the Hon. Gentleman (Mr WAiinLr) had consulted cooler hiads than his lie thought the Dake of Ytuk hai!, in this letter;-, consulted cooler heads than his o'.vn ; for, from what the RigJ4t Hon. Member knew of the character of the Duke, he did not think he would have put his hand tosuch a pricccding. The Right Hon. Member could compreheijd the meniiing of the Dike's asserting his innoccsice; b;it could not iin-pers!and why he did not (3o this ai first; He was innocent " upon his honour as a I'lince!"

HOUSE OF^COMMONS. - RETURNS OF THE SPANISH EXPEDITldX. LordTi'^MPLE rose to eufurce his mdtion for tbe returns ofthe late IC.tpedition to Spain. He thought there had been quite sulficient time to make thera up, and that the dead silCRi;e which his JIajesty's Ministers had preserved ah ut them wa� nut rcspecltul to the JIousp; He therefore begged that the retains mentioned in his Majesty's Addreis might be fiirthwithlaid upon (he table. Lord CASTLj.;REAGH . give any account of seven regiments frnin Portugal. It was, therefore, impi.ssible to promise tlie Noble Lord completely pirlcct returns; but he trusted, that in the course of next week, or before the holidays at any rate, he should be able to satisfy his Lordship. THE CO.MMANDER IN CHIEF. : Lord FOLKSTONE moved the Order of the Day'ror the resumption of the atljourued Debate on the conduct of the Commander in Oncf. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER, after a few words had passed between kim anti ;Mr. Tlerney, announced his inteutioa to with- draw his Resolution, and omit from it the word. * charges," aiid otherwise to alter it to the follow. ing effect ;- "JThnt this House having app6inted a Committee to inves- sigate the conduct of his Royal Ui^bnesi the Dolce of Y'^rk, as Commander io Chief, and having carefnlly considered (be evidence which came before the said Coinmiltee, and finding that pcrsmal corruption, and connivance at corruption, have beeniuipsleU to bijsaid Royal Hi;;hDcss, fiud it cxpedieul to of his Majesty,"Lf the House, and of'the Coun-pronounce adiMinct opinion upon the said imputation, and ^ And unless the Right Hon. Genlleman'car. are accordingly of opinion that it ii wholly without foonda- ' - - " ...... tiOD." Mr. TIERNEY said, that the character of the Duke of York was public property, the public having an interest to see that no persott should sit on the Throne whose character wa.s (ainled. If, thtirefore, the charge of corruption should be prev. ed against his Royal Highness, a Bill of Exclusion from the Throne must necessarily follow. The Hoilse, knowing that he was corrupt, would de-grade thfiHselves if they did'-nbt ji'ass such a Bill. The Right Ilonl Member \*^s'so.leinnIy of opinioii, thdtlhe charge tsf corruption Had not been pruveii fair Md liberal support ;;he wonid provoke thera to spiak as to corruption ; the Right Honourable Meiober did not believe there was corruption, but "^-tto Biaa had a right to sift Itim, ^'licther auy (ive between inci^nvenicnec aud injustice? It ! there were corrupt praciices; scconJIy, thai was difficult to proiluce an instance, where .the � Diike of York did not participate in or CJiini deficiency in poivcr of examining upon oath was productive of much inconveiiicucc. Thcir's were called {inquisitorial powers: true; but inquisiturial powers must be lodged soina-where; and where eould they be lodged belter than in the House of Contmons ? It was true Ibat the House were bound by uo rule; but then they had the sound discretion of the rejirescntatives of the people, and that though no rule was a svifli-cient guide to honest men. If the House were bound by rules, they would bo in eveu ainorc unpleasant situation than they at present were. The Righ^Hou. Member was not bound to say Aye or No to the Hight Hon. Gcnllem.m's question: an Address might be framed so as to satisfy the minds ried his Resolution unanimously, wliat did he do? The Right Hon. Member did not think the Duke corrupt; but many Member.? niyht, and Hieo where was the delicacy of Ministers ? The House were.a Jury pronouncing by majority; aud in i pnblic functionary ; and (here he was opeti to the same sifting and censure as any other man. No man agreed irtote cordially than the Right Honourable Member in all the praises that could be bestowed upon the Duke as.Com.! niander in Chief; but he codld not remain where he was ; and the milder the means of removitig h m could be devised, the better. That removal^ however, was what the House owed to itself. Tiiwe was a time when nothing wsuld have made ths lli.;ht Hon. Mijmbcr mure happy than to have heard that the Duke had resigned ; arid he might have resigned without the smallest disgrace. There was a precedent of this in the case cf the Duke of Marlborough, of whom the House of Parliament received Cirtain inforirtalion that he had unduly-put 63,0C0/. into his pocket. The House took this into its consideration, anJ her Majesty tu Council declared that, being informed of the jjrow eeedings, she resumed the iJukc of .Marlborough's a|)pointiuen!s ; and nothing ajipeareil on the Journals of tlie House but the removal of the Duke. The Riiht Hon. .Member concluded with aijuoun. ctng his intention to propose au Arncuuraent to the : Right Hon. Gentleman's iutcjTsihd Resolulion, to \ the following cftecf, upon wliici) lie should be in- clincJ to take the sense ofthe : . " That the House having considered Ohe various circiim-I cimistanec.-, ihink it ri^ht, first ic pronounce on the hpnmir of tlie Duke of Yorli.; anil iixt, hat iniprPssiTjn the whole of those rircnm^l.nnces h.i5 left on their niiiuls." Mr. BRAGGE BATHf.'R.ST fad (hero was a I degree of iinfsirncss in omi (ing the word "charges" ! in the Resolution, after ihe Right Hon. j har an au.bignily, and to pronounce juiigmcut on an altcriiaiive. All (hat the Hjiis.e had lo say wa.^, that the ciiar^c of corruption was not provt'd : and it was liijnsiiee to the Dt>ke of York to deprive him of 'he ro'cs cf those who could go thus far and no farther, lie had rather Kill a man outright, thatl inercifiilly inflict a lingering death  he had rather stab hi:n in open day, than in'sintiate into his body a poi.soiicd daijger. The Duke of Yoik migh' beinooccnt of cotruptionj and yet g;il!ty uf mtscmilucf : it Was impossible to dismiss tlie sitl'ject without a further llesoluMoit, aiid the Address ^vouid form t.he sub. jeet of a third Resolution. It was desirable that there should be .i-i Address, in order to relii-vc the an.xiely of his M;tjesfy's mind; The Hot-, .\lem. ber's view of the subject vfouiJ be hcHrr explained by a Resolution which Jie should n'>t propose the tipinion of the House, but merely read as a declaration of his o\vn. It stated lirst, that that ths participate in or cniuivc at them; aud thinily, that he had however jicrmitted the Undue influence of a connecfirtn, in itself highly immoral, to the injury of the sfer^^e aud the EcandjI of thi' public. Mr. CARTWRIGHT was of opinion (he HouJi should come to a on all the chari^cs, particularly those that related to corruption and connivance, and that it should be done father by way of RescJution than Address. Lird W; RUsSELlj said, fhat af^er (he very long distussiotiS that had already taken on this subject, he woulo not eri:er into an examination of thtTcfidcncC, but confirre what he had to say lo the first proposition of the Right Hon. Gen-tlcTJan. Neither thai proposition, nor (he Amend'*' ; inent o." his Hon, Friend, met his approbation, f He would be sorry to finl it drawn into precedent, :' that tffo ci'iaracftr of any person, however great r audexrflfed he mighi be, uas to hore preferenceto j a consideration of public grievances or even in-coaveiiiinci.;s. It mighf Le ncccsary, perhapj, to pronounce en cpini'jfi on the character cf the Royal (fi^huc.'s. Sir IJ.
