THE Public are refpectfully informed, that many ThoufanAs of induftrious Men, Women, and Children, are become almoft deftitute of Employment by the general U(d ti&a& to be the moft convenient to begin to-morrow (tttij dajr) and to contihiie for fourteen days,^ /  Mr. Buffo faid, it might be very naturally e)r> pected that he fhould fay fomething upon a fubjeet of great importance, a fubjeet whieh took ur> the particular attention of the laft Parliament* the trial of Mr. Hajlings. He faid* left aa . idea fhould be entertained, that the proceedings were at an end, on accpunt of theHotife of Peers adjourning over the day (Tuefday), on which the motion for the further proceedings on the trial of Mr. Haftings was to be made, he thought it ne-cefTary to ftate his opinion; the Houfe of Lords* he was led to believe, were induced to act fo for two reafons: the firft was, their Lordfhips Were d� opinion, that, the" Houfe would be taken up on that day (Tuefday), in fwearing in thi Members; and the next was, mat it was the day on which it would be moved, '� that an rmmfelc Ad-dreis be prefented to his Majefty, for his moft gracious fpeech from the Throne."- Her* he w3r dreffed himfelf parucularly to the Speaker, who* he faid, was better informed refpecting parliament tary cuftorns than he was, and in whole knowledgfe ' and impartiality he placed tht greateft. confidence-to him he would apply for an explanation. He faid, the laft Parliament, hcantinuatisn of the trial, which, he hoped and btf . lieved, k would purfue with undiminiihed vigour and juftice.   - ' Mr. Speakef faid, that as the Right -Horn Gentleman had appealed to him, he thought, it necef-fary to fay, that whatever doubts might be entertained elfewheret there could be bo doubt i� that Houfe, whenever it came to be difcufled* , that no diffslution of Parliament couii affect the event of a Trial by Impeachment; He perfectly agreed in the opinion which the Hon. Gentleman had entertained refpe&ing the mo-tires that had induced their Lordfiript tb-'pafrorcH* the day, and he recommended to the Hon. Gen^ tleman to paufe a day or two, in order that their Lordfhips might not fuppofe that they entertained a different idea. Mr. Pitt confirmed what Mr; Speaker had faio% and obferved, that were a queftion toarife, ifenj fhould arife, the Hon. Gentleman, by giving notice of the day on which he meant to mate the motion, would have an 'opportunity of hearing that queftion properly difcuifed.  Mr. Burke acquiefced in the Hon. Gentleman*! explanation. , - Mr. Speaker informed the Hdufe, that fince that Hon. Houfe had attended his Majefty at the bar of the Houfe of Peers on Thurfday laft, in order to prevent miftakes, he had procured a copy of the Speech which his Majefty delivered from the ' Throne, which,, he would no^- read to the Ho^fe; As foon as the-.Speaker had read the Speechi Mr. Mainwaring^rofeand faid, that feeling as hd-dfcd in thefitaation.which he flood as the reprefenta-tiye of a great and populous county, it gave him the moft heartfelt fatnfadtion- to think, that the bleflingsof peace, fb effential to the inMreft, commerce, and profperity of a free and commercial country, fhould be fecured, which he was happy to fay the expreflions in the King's Speech gave him the liberty to ftate.-It became him, therefore, to rejoice in common with all friends to the country upon-that happy event, which he could not help thinking had been effected entirely by the King's attachment and regard for his people, and the wifdom and firsu-nefs of his minifters ; he faid, it happened very rarely that war was productive of heneficiat confequences to this country, and that it wa? always his opinion that npthiag but the moft ev"i-den'rand urgent necefSty^could be a proper tea-fon for going to war, and thereby deftroying the tranquillity and greatly endangering the interefts� trade, and welfare of a commercial kingdotn^.' it was well known that the well appointed fleets'and the great armies kept up in this country, were never intended as the means of cOnqueft, but of protection to the trade, the honour and the dig-nuy of the nation. The armament upon the prefent occafion had been very great, and the quick-nefs with which it had beert cornpleated, claimed the warmeft pra�fes from the connrry, and would remain as a teftimony in future of what the re-fonrces and fp^rit of this country would produce when under the management of fb wife and able ad adminiftratiort. The expence. attending this ar+ mament- would, no doubt, be "great* in proportion to the extent, which the wifdom ofhisMa-jefty's Cotincil^co^fidered it rieceffary to go�- blrt great as that expence might bs> when com-s pared to the objects to be gained, and which his Majefty had in view, hAWas fu:e when he thought of the termination of the negotiation which wr s now Ukely to take place, theft expecce* would ;
