The report of this Addrefs was received in the Aflembly with tha loudeft plaudits ; and the Hall refounded with Vive ia Reitie, as it had done with Vi-ve le Roi on the King's entrance. * An Addrefs of Thanks to the King was moved j and agreed to by acclamation.

This accident iiappened at Aftrope, in Oxfordshire. Extract of a Letter from Derly, February 3. " At Burton fair yellerday morning a young woman of the parifh of Swadlincote, whole huf-band fome time iince abfeonded, and who, on that account^ has been fince chargeable on the oariih, was publicly fold in the market-place, by the Swadlincote pariib officer, to a man of the paiidi of Greailey, for the fum of two /hillings, deducting the price of the halter, in which the woman was delivered in the ufual way-which has been lately praftifed. After entering the ti anfacticn in the tfill-book, the parties returned home feem-ingly well fatisfied.-What are the Magiflrates tbout, that they fuller fuch practices V ment was added, that no Member then abfent fhould be allowed to vote /before taking the fame oath. The Prefident having firft taken the oath, the Members were called over by name, and each in his turn fwore " To be faithful to the Nation, the Law, and the King; and to maintain, to the utmoft of his power, the con!litution decreed by the National AiTcmhly, and accepted by the Kin?.'' The tiijbop of Ptrpignan wifhed to take the oath with a certain qualification ; but was told that he muft either take it unconditionally, orwith draw, aftd he preferred the former. The Abbi de Montefquion, who has been always fo flrer.uous an advocate for the rights of the Church, that he has frequently been called the Agent of the Clergy, behaved with more dignity. Having taken the oath, " I promife moreover," added he, " to fet the example of union, if there ever have been th'e feeds of di-vifion in this Aflembly." The Deputies on commercial affairs, and various Deputies Extraordinary from different parts of the kingdom, requested permiifion to take the lame oath, which was granted. The Keeper of the Seals, M. Bailly, and the Marquis c!e la Fayette alfo took the oath. The King, in going to the Aflembly, svas preceded by his Equerries, two Officers of the National Guard' and fame Pages. He was drefled in a plain -fiat of black. The intention of this vifit, and of the fpeech delivered-by his Majeily, feems to have been to canvince tlw people of France, and alfo foreign nations, that the bell poflible underflanding fulfills between the King and the National Aflcm- bly. % � .

Several accounts were laid on the tabls from tire Tax and other Offices. Several pri'.-rte bills were prcferited-, 'and petitions ordered to lie on the tabic. Mr.-FUsd requeued to know if there was an/ queflicn befor; the Houft ; if there was, he did-not .t-ea'n 1.0 call rhr'r rittentior. at prcfent to an object of wetg'irv concern. (Being b.:rs infermtd there i>jas ne*). r.:: bru:fly fluted, tiiat the inadequacy of Rcpr'f:'::a!';-;n was a matt r which required n fudden ;md fericus confideratron: the fatal effects t>t v/:ich, he was lorry to find fo recently and aihrniihingiy occurred in France, a� made Britons i'-c, furthei- excitements, the neceflity of prev;nt"ng the rnpid ftrides unequal reprefentation hal made here. Something (hould be clone to that purpofe ; and he gave notice, that on Wedrscfd-?.)' fe'nnight he would move, thr.t the Ho'ufe do take the fame into con-f-dcrr.tion. Mr. Burke remarked, that. the Riglit lion. Gentleman did right in giving fuch'tiraely notice; he agreed with him as to die inadequacy of the revirefen'tatxon, but remarked that no later than lafl feflions the Houfe, by its own vote, had di* dared Us adeqn6r.grant-in^ tr> his Majefly cer>-tain films for the fupport ot "Taif* *Gr*~*r including 172S invalids, for the year 1790. The Repott being read� Sir Grey Cooper laid, he did not mean to giv* his negative; to thefe grants, he only wimea to call the attention of the Houfe to a matter of much greater importance---he adverted to the enormous fum of 39,800b whichj by the return of the proper officer, was laid as in the hands of the Paymaibr-General. He could not pretend to afiirm how very hari that circumftance was to the nation, or how great a breach it was of the Jaw of the land, but h� ~ would fay, that fome wherethere was irregularity; and to bellow upon it the kindefl epithet, it became the duty of the Houfe to enqVire whera that error lay. if it were a mere miflake, no man i'oonw, than he, would make allowance* for it; he had been long in office himfslf; ths knew that inadvertency or hurry might create, involuntary errors. But this was too evident, too apparent a matter to be grofly fo faulty, in, as to make fuch a return to this Houfe. He mud, therefore, until he he heard it refuted upon folid grounds, believe that it had been ill applied, or not applied to any purpofe, any effectual purpofe at all. He referred to the 2d, 4th, and 7th claufii of chapter 50th, of an A�t of that Houfe in 1783, wiiich diredly fays, that -every furplus in the hands of the paymafler-General fhould be de~ pofited in the Bank of England, to be there lodged in the Exchequer for the difpofal of that Houfe. The Houfe then had every right to difcover where this money lay, and then appropriate* it to it* proper ufes. He then defiredtobe informed whether this money really was, as ftated in the accour !s, in the hands of the Paymafter-General, or was it an error in making the return ? Mr. Steele faid, that he agreed with the Right. Hon. Baronet, if this fum lay in the hands of the Paymafter-General, whilft an aft of Parliament to the contrary flared him in the face, the charge was of the higfieft magnitude, and he woiiR be the firft to condemn foch a proceeding ; Jr-ut the faft was, that this fum did not lie in tne hands of the Paymafter-GeneraU but lay in the Bank of England, there by him depofitcd, and conflantly fubjeft to every claim that proper authority had on. it, and, in, reality, from the feve* ;
