principles hich within the recollection of the House marked my conduct LJuive at id times strenuously exerted myself in the execu tion of my Parliamentary and on all occasions where delinquency has been dis followed it up to the fullest extent of my Had I not acted in that man I should conceive I was not acting con sistently with my consulting interests of my I have inviniab adhered to that respect which was due to tlu House of and to those it be characier to I help culling the attention of the House to the absolute necessity liiLie for a adherence to impar tial If the confidence of the people to be it must Ire by a strict regard to their as well as a due attention to the support of our own These characters are to L supported alone by a firm attachment to honour and With regard to the subject I have tlie honour of it is not my intention to proceed beyond what is con tained iu the evidence on the table of the nor do I intend to make any charge beyond what the testimony of the Noble Lord I to call for a vote of censure on his Lordships It may be necessarVi to make a few observations en tlie urgency of the and the extreme delinquency of the person who is and in my is a culprit of the I do not apprehend tiiat I shall hear there are any symptoms of conspiracy on this oc I trust the House will shew no dis by such insinuationsr to disgrace The nature of the transactions which form the basis of tlie present appears by the evidence to have commenced in tue year The Noble JLovd received a letter From a of rire forming his LorSship that he had lliumeanS of procuring a siat in his Lordship having at that time racuted his on bis ac ceptance of the seals for the Colonial Depart His informed Reding that he did notwant a seat in Parliament for but that a friend of his His Lordship then enclosed the letter to Lord Clan and never saw Reding His Lordship was then asked if he had any con versation with Lord as connected with this transaction of iri which a writership was offered to Lord Ctancartys nomi nation to which he that some time after he had enclosed Redings letter to Lord Lord Clancarty told him that he had u negociation with with a view to procure a aeat in which lie said had iailed inasmuch as the proposition he had made to which wa of a pecu niary had been declined by the Committee gives ample ground it sufficienton tiiat will be made for the support of the Iaw0 i abcut to be introduced for the suppression oi the infamous traffic in when it is seen that two public functionaries and a Peer of the other House hold up so infamous example to tiie public The ISoble Lord was a servant to the and such he bound to up hold the Government of the and sup perl the reputatioa of himself and his fellow Ministers but instead of being guided by such conscientious he was guilty himself of the most rlayrant As President of the Board of which filiation he hed at the tune the uegoviation was on the dutks of which otlke were to inspect every occurrence that was apparently and to correct the evils that might fall under his he was juilty of an infrac tion of that which reflected indelible dis grace on his It is stated in that the Noble Lord had certain parroinigf at his I do not wish at present to call the it teution of the Houce to that subject but I am certainly at a loss to on what foundation his Lordship became as President of the Board of to any patrormge I think such an indulgence is anil in itself corrupt for if I mistake there is a clause ii the Statute appointing that which prohibits the grant of any patronage to the If tiie Noble has usurped 01pro fited by the disposal of that without proper his conduct of course be comes still more In disposing of that he should at have avoided infraction upon the strict and established laid down for the guidance of other I apprehend the Noble Lord could have no patent ior an exclusive departure from those When the Noble Lord was spoken to by Lord Clancarty on the subject of the could not be ignorant of the regulations adopted respecting the disposition of nor could he with justice reconcile to his own mind the infringement of those wise arrange ments more especially when he considered the declaration necessary to be signed oa signing a writers which is lo the following effect recommend this and do most so lehmly declare that I have given this nomination and that I have neither received ior has any other to the best of my know ledge or nor is to any aecuniary nor any thing convert iblem any mode into a pecuniary on this conduct of the Noble in opposition to this plain and comprehensible de was not alone a flagrant departure Vom his own but excite the indig nation of the I cannot conceive Lord Clancarty has deceived the Noble Lord and if le lias not deceived his Lordship lave naturally for he had full reason to bdieve that this patronage was about to be converted into FKretttffrf 1y his J i T L ciLarly and did nor tould not I in the course uf a

both had ne consequently they were both charge able with gross It is my duty to make out a and distinct case and in rder to do I must have recourse to terms vhich perhaps be irksome to the feelings f

done that which dest rves the cen sure of the The evidence Hous ness is the best criterion of the lore the or the contil aud to that the crime e admitted m a com although lie asserted he never saw Reding after the first which would appear to be a mere subterfuge froni the validity of the charge of The seat in how was not to be procured for money as it afterwards would for tlie nomination to a The foitewing question and an swer of would elucidate this What passed between your Lordship and Lord Clancarty in consequence of the refusal to ciate the in Parliament To which his Lordship He had been induced to place a writership at Lord Clancartys that Lord Clancartys coming1 into Parliament might thereby be If 1 were to submit that single sentence to the and movea Resolution expressive of their disapprobation I am convinced the House would at once concur with the strict justice of such a The acquiescence of the Noble Lord iu the proposition of olDtaiii ng the writership was not to be qualified on the mere evidence on the table case was directly In the examination of the Earl of it appeared that Eieding had particularly that the seat ii Parliament was not to be procured for a pecuniary but for an appoint ment to a writership and on the follow ng question being put to his Did Lord Castlereagh offer you this appoint ment of a writership for the purpose of facili tating your being returned to if that could be obtained by these means He Certainly it being always that the party was of sufficient respectability to be eligible for the From thia circum stance it there was not

should be detected and exhort ing in a to lend his aid to dis cover the party who would he daring enough to make so improper a use of his in order to their being exposed and all this took place after the former negociation had and was broken The Noble Lord affects to be and threatens to expose the person who used his for what purpose For no other purpose than to hide his own and to prevent himself from being No lie would rather expose licdiny and than It was somewhat that this dread all took place after the Noble Lord had those corrupt and began to con duct so gross would meet the public If the Noble Lords name has been coupled improperly with the names of Reding and Davis in trre it is to be hoped his Lordship will be able to make such as will be satisfactory to the I con if the Noble Lords name had been improperly he would have com menced a prosecution against the persons who dared to slander his character It is that such a prosecution was not commenced as if it and the person was
