which seems to to that the British constitution without corrupt provide ibr its self a and first place ever for the seriouii and needed I thought I cused for forward tliis wJ as it is of a very

have only followed a bad precedent and I shall not take a leaf out of the bgok of the Glejitle nor from that of the near Jura for I do not think the doctrine of either is founded upon thfj piiJe principles of the Uii I in the outset of upon this to I leavi my short or rather tor I have declared that I have pp stronger feelings against the Chancellor of the aud the Noble near than they expressed against others who once sat fvbere they do and most of whose are now on this side of the whose conduct did not meet their ap probation for I do 1 am no party but that 1 uia I sliall be on all to lend my humble assistance to those who or whoappear to me to the true prin ciples of our constitution my object is to support the purity of representation of the people iu this to be a decided foe to corruption to illustrate this prin as welt as to sincerity of my declaration in its I do not think I can do better than follow the example of the Right Gentleman opposite tp in the manner in which he addressed in this on a former when he was tish constitution j at if it be I hare very imperfectly educated as to the spirit the constitution of I never did read in any part of the history pf sinecure places were pillars of the constitu tion ofEnglaud I have never read that rotten Boroughs to be considered as sound parts Of the noiitical system this intfijeav read in the history of my doo trinerto the reverse of and that corruption of all sorts has been thought to be at enmity with the health of the body and that provisions fiorn time to been thought to bfe necessary to to remove corruption to come to own Iwould remind the House of the efforts of an Honourable Friend of mine on the bench below me who distinguished himself in bringing before this and after wards before thehighest tribunal to this charges against the theuTreasurer of the Navy Melville and when another Ho nourahle Friend of mine Wardle brought to light certain abuses in the office of the Com mander in These matters have led to an inquiry into other and a discovery of mStVy in difiereut departments of the But of all abuses which have been that which deserves most immediately the attention of this is the from1 the influence of the Treasury in returning Members to represent the people in or rather to seVve the Ministers of the day in this And here I would1 ask leave to refer to the speech of Sir John in the in this Here he read an extract from the Parliamentary debates of that in wliich the speech of that Member was relating to the evils of and the effect of givmg way to the wishes of espe

Colonel After a few from Lord and the Secretary at MA called the attention dfthe House to the subject of which he had given that of an abase in the manner of Mittisters interfering with the conduetof a MenjberTBf that in his cba of the fipor Vof to I and on which I few words I mean the an opinion on subjects of the same nature as that which I am noy about to lay before this I remember hearing from that Right in his there never was a period iu the history of this coun in which there wss less corruption than the present when corruption did it should be brought to as well as exposed to public I aiB not sure that I can quote the expressions of the Right Gentleman correctly but I hope 1 shall not deviate far from the point on which he dwelt so long in discussing the subject shall say a subject of tho Hampshire But before I proceed upon that I shall beg leave to allude to another as I pass An whom I jo not now see in complained the other when I mentioned the subject to which I am now to call the at tention of the that I did not conform to the rules of theHouss in sufficient notice of the motion whicli I had the honour to bring AH lean sjy that I was not aware I was infringing oa the regular practice of this House by the which L then proposed taking and when I collected that 1 J most readily gave way i and thus the subject now comes again before the But J ought in de fence of tp that about two three years when the Hampshire Election Petition wus it was complained by the then Members of that sufficient notice had not been given of that application to the House ajkl with I will take the liberty of as part of my owh that which purports to be the substance the complaint made upon tbat which was conveyed to the House in tbe speech of the flight Gentleman to and particularly with respect to the man lier in which that proceeding was conducted Bad alledged when any such as were presented in that pe were it usual give before the was brought not word by way subject and as notice ii the Petaj9D is aprecedent tocoimtenance other night on this r and senwis au import thai Compiain putof of as to the Ho use r the doorwould be for ever shut agafnst he must be efiect of allowing the Ministers of the Executive Government to in terfere in the electionof Members to iu Parliament and the same Member went on to that the efforts of country gentle even iu those vigilant and active as they yet were they overpowered by the un due influence of the Ministers of the The nature of the influence of the Treasury in this House is so said the evils arising out of it are so and some of them so well that I shall riot take up the time of the House in entering into There a species of Treasury influence which is most because it grows upon us I mean that system of giving places in the and other many of them of the nature of for the purpose influencing those who possess the power in boroughs to return Members to serve in tliis under the name of Representatives of the People of but who have no in terest in common with the people of To persons possessing this power in the money of the people out to a vast amount in various for the purpose of car rying of which 1 on some future enter into aud endeavour to prevail on tliis House to go into a Committee to consider the matter of which I shall touch only and in a few for the Tbe first bprough I would at is that of of which the number of voters is 24 we think he said entirely in the hands of one man and it is as corrupt a place as it is possible for a botough to being absolutely tEe as it is of Henry and his who

said Quintin EKkk was returned tor the said borough of and I do that 1 ani informed that the Right Spencer Perceval waa a juainted with this of Quiutin Dick having thus obtained his seat in And I do further that I am inform pending an inquiry in this into the conduct of his Royal Highness Duke of iate Commander in Lord Viscount being informed of the vote which the said Quintin Dick intended to give on the said the Lord Viscount after a consultation with the saidRight Spencer did sug gest to the said Qaiutin the propriety of relinquishing his scat in rather than give sjich a This is the substance of the charge which exhibit before this I am ready to prove at the Bar of this uiU on tbe llouse to vindicate its S doing I only use the language of pe on on the subject of the election to these two onthe return bf every Members to serve in Parliament for The next borongn to which T shall at present advert ofurbieh Thomas we think he aaid h the the and that borough stands under own to
