F R I D A Y , OCTOBER « 1820. 1819." THE LIVERPOOL MERCURY. ' 205 jfrcfog, # or£ tcn & iionugttc. Naples. It appears b/ detters from Vienna, to the 15th. ult. that the new Neapolitan Ambassador to St. Petersburgh, after remaining seme time at the Austrian capital, was refused by the Russian Ambassador at that Court, the passports necessary to enable him to proceed. Count Gsrowkin, in his letter of refusal, states, that he had just received instructions, which he had requested from his Court, relative to the extraordinary mission announced to him by the Neapolitan Ambassador, Prince Cimitelle- San- Everino, and these are, that the Emperor of Russia cannot receive the embassy, neither in a diplomatic form, nor even in a manner purely confidential. The following remarkable paragraph will throw some light 6n the views, with which the great Northern Potentate regards tbe transactions in the south of Europe, notwithstanding those liberal declarations which he is said to have made on this subject. " the Emperor, my master, is united with his august allies, by the faith of treaties, by the most indisoluble friendship, and by a confidence so much the more implicit, as the restablishment of social order, which has been the great motive of this union, Is become the essential end of it." Portugal.— An important document has been addresssed by the Regency of Lisbon '* to the Junta which formed itself in the city Of Oporto, and which calls itself the supreme Junta of the kingdom." It states, that the Regency have put in force the extraordinary powers re- , posed in it by the King for urgent occasions; and have resolved, in his Royal name, to convoke the Cortes, which are to assemble. Letters are despatched to all the corporations of the kingdom, inviting them to proceed to the election of representatives, conformably to the usages and customs of the nation. " The Goveriiors of the kingdom ( adds this proclamation) comprehend in their pure desires, in their well- founded hopes, the very Junta which has been established in the city of Oporto, and do not hesitate to address to it, as well as to all other classes and individuals of the nation, the words of reconciliation." " Penetrated with these sentiments ( continues the Rcgency), the Governors of the kingdom cannot cease to repeat the wish which they have solemnly announced, declaring that the Portuguese, of all classes, who listened to the voice of the Government of Oporto, and joined it for a short time against the Government of the'kingdom, need dread neither hatred, nor vengeance, nor punishment, on account of the late political events." The following are. the concluding paragraphs :—" Consider | that there is no time to lose— we are on the brink of a precipice. Already citizens are armed against citizens an unpleasant duty ; bHt it would be recollected, that a Court had been held in that Hall on the 30th June last; on which occasion the Lord Mayor had surreptitiously and unconstitutionally applftd to the Secretary of State for a military force— Here Mr. Galloway was interrupted, but would not give way. During some altercation Which ensued, the Lord Mayor directed the Crier to dissolve the meeting. This being done with much difficulty, tile Lord Mayor and some of the Aldermen left the Court— Mr. Pearson then proposed, that Alderman Waithman should be called to the chair; but it was agreed that a deputation should be sent to the Lord Mayor elect, Alderman Thorpe.— Mr. Galloway again came forward, and after a variety of observations on the conduct of the Lord Mayor, a requisition was drawn up, and signed by a considerable number of the liverymen, requiring his Lordship to convene a Common Hall, on an early day, " to take into consideration the conduct of the Chief Magistrate, in introducing into the immediate vicinity of the city of London, an armed force, calculated to overawe their proceedings, and to interrupt their deliberations; and further, to express the opinion of the livery on the sudden dissolution of the Hall, on that day. A deputation of the livery was appointed to present the requisition immedediately to the Mayor. His Lordship, at about five o'clock, received the deputation, consisting of about thirty gentlemen, and Mr. Galloway stated that the purport of their visit was to urge his Lordship to grant the object of the requisitionists.— The Lord Mayor entered into a defence of his conduct in calling in the military, saying, that it was his duty to I preserve the peace of the metropolis, by any means his " : judgment might dictate— Mr. Tipper remarked, that it was not the object of the deputation to discuss the question, but merely to know his Lordship's determination. After some further desultory conversation, his Lordship appointed Monday ( Oct. 2). to give an answer, whether he would consent to call the Hall. On the preceding day, Sept. 28, the Sheriffs elect, Mr. Alderman Waithman and Mr. James Williams, were invested by the proper officers with the chains of office, and sworn in as Sheriffs. Mr. Sheriff Waithman then came forward, and said, that it was not to be expected of him, that, in performing the duties of his new office, he would compromise any of the public opinions which he had invariably expressed; but no political feeling should in any degree interfere with the due performance of his duty .

MEETING OF LONDON, WESTMINSTER, AND SOUTHWARK. On Tuesday se'nnight, a meeting was held at Frcemoson's Hall, for the purpose of congratulating her Majesty on the close of her persecution. At an early hour, the graat Room, was crowded with elegantly dressed ladies, many of whom were of the first respectability. They filled the principal seats and all the galleries. As might be expected, both the cause and the fair company attracted a Very large assemblage of gentlemen, so that at one o'clock every part of the room and galleries was closely occupied. The effect of so numerous and elegant an assembly, who were met together on so interesting an occasion, was truly impressive. Mr. Hobhouse was called to the chair, which he took amid great applause. He said that the present meeting had been convened, not to consider the nature of her Majesty's trial, but to congratulate the Queen upon the close of the prosecution against her, terminating as it had, in the manner in which he all along expected it would terminate. But had the close of the prosecution not left the charges utterly unsustained, still it might be said that the House of Peers was not a fair tribunal to try the Queen. The proceedings of such a tribunal, he therefore totally disregarded. " They pass by me," said Mr. H. " asthe wind, which I regard not!" Even in the bad times of Henry VIII. tyrannical as they were, were without an adequate example. The Judges, even of that depotic prince, had replied to him when he wanted to proceed to a condemnation of his Queen, by the opinion of the High Court of Parliament, without resorting to the established forms of law in the administration of justice, " God forbid his Majesty should imagine that they for a moment impugned his having the power to dispose of the question in the way he thought proper; but that, nevertheless, they must needs say, to do so here would furnish rather a dange. rous precedent: for that it were better the High Court of Parliament should in its proceeding, set the example of temper, and lean rather to mercy than severity." Such was the opinion expressed in the time of Henry VIII.; but the present House of Peers, with a severity unexampled, had first refused the Queen a list of witnesses, and then a specification of the places where the crimes were said to have been committed ; and last of all, they refused permission to the Queen's Attorneygeneral to proceed with his statement in defence of his illustrious client, unless he was ready to follow it up by the immediate production of witnesses. Yet it was said, to doubt tlie integrity and impartiality of such a tribunal was presumptuous .' " What," said the supporter of the tribunal, " do you doubt the honour of a Peer, and the impartiality not only of a Peer, but of a Bishop ?" Now for his own part he was much of the opinion of Sir Anthony Weldon, who wrote the history of the court of James I.; who was, until lately, considered the most besotted Prince, that ever filled the Engj lish throne. Weldon, in writing upon the subject of I Somerset's divorce, uses these words—" But needs must ' where the devil drives s yet they know not how handsomely to effect this, without making the King a party Nor was this hard to effect; left. In presenting those gentlemen, he took occasion to say, that with regard to the first, he had been long known to his fellow- citizens as an extremely able and intrusted. A private letter, dated Oporto, Sept 13th, states, that On Saturday last, the Sheriffs elect, with the Lord Mayor elect, accompanied by the Civic Magistrates went ; to this ( bawdy) business. u. u> cm*,., by water, in the state barges, to Westminster, to be pre- i for the King's eye began to wander after a new favousented to the Barons of the Exchequer.

Therefore, to bring Cursitor Baron, Massieres, having taken liis seat on the this ( bawdry) to a marriage, my Lords the Bishops must bench, the Common Serjeant appeared at the bar with be principal actors, ( as I know not in what actions they Mr. Waithman on his right and Mr. Williams on his j would not be lookers on ;) and the Bisliop of Winches- ' — A — — — i- terj (' Why' said Mr. II. ' to keep the parallel complete, was it not a Bishop of Exeter ?') a very great scholar and learned civiliax, must play the principal part— for which his son was knighted." With this experience of the past and knowledge of the present, were people of England so wrong, so uncandid, so improy suspicious, in not placing entire confidence in what their Lordships the Bishops might do in the present tribunal? The Earl of Liverpool had indeed condescended to state, that he would allow the Peers to vote according to their eonsciences: his words were, as reported on the journals, that he should not feel hurt by the manner they should vote, one way or the other. The declaration let out the secret of the motives upon which the Peers commonly act. It shewed that their Lordships were sometimes supposed to consider whether " the Noble Minister would feel hurt at their manner of voting." Mr. Hobhouse took a review of the evidence, and said he blushed that any men, be they Italians, or from any other civilized country, could be evidence, he could say from what he knew, - would eomout like thunder upon all. The arrival of despatch^ the preceding night from Italy, was most satisfactory. A branch of his family, who acted as interpreter, had written to him. He could not have deceived him, for he had written as a son to a father; and he assured him, that all the evidence could be met and reftited— would be met and refuted. It was impossible that the Queen should not rise more glorious than ever from this persecution, to their gratification and to the degradation and infamy of her accusers. MEETING AT ST. JAMES'S, WESTMINSTER. On Wednesday se'nnight, a very numerous and respectable meeting was held at the Pulteney Assembly Rooms, for the purpose of voting a congratulatory address to her Majesty. J. T. Barber Beaumont, Esq. wns Chairman. He commented strongly on the present prosecution, and Mr. Bowie followed him, describing the whole as a cruel mockery, got up bj » a powerful faction, who held in equal subjection the People and the King. Mr. Hobhouse came forward amid the enthusiastic applause of the meeting. In the course of a most brilliant speech, he said it was clear that the accusers of her Majesty had no protection but in their standing army ; and that army was not distant: they were hedged about by bayonets and by sabres, as the only protection of the Parliament against the people of England. Under the protection of the same mediators, he was of opinion that the Bill would pass through the House; there would be the usual minority against it, something between 61 and 68. Any man who attended the proceeding, might easily calculate the result. Mr. H. then ridiculed the trivial charges which were attempted to be made matters of importance, such as that a faithful servant had sat down at tabic with the Queen. Suppose a person had last year come from Brighton, and stated, " I have seen a couple of scullisns come out of a certain palace there, and they assured me that a certain great man had sat down on the bare floor to cat beef steaks with his cook, at half past one o'clock in the morning." Suppose that he ( Mr. H.) was told he ought to bring this matter before Parliament as a question of national importance. Why, he would tell the person who would suggest it, that he was a dirty tale bearer. Though, perhaps, it would be as well if that great Person had not played high life below stairs. Yet still he saw no great harm in descending from the Throne to the kitchen— it was affable in a Monarch— it proved that he was not at all times a King, but sometimes condescended to be a man. The address was agreed to, and was to be presented by Sir F. Burdett and Mr. Hobhouse. PROCESSIONS WITII ADDRESSES TO T H E QUEEN. ests 111 the Common Council.

Spain Accounts from Madrid to the 14th Sept state, that the Russian Government had appointed an Ambassador, and a Secretary of Embassy, to the Spanish Court. It appears that Gen. Riego arrived at Valladolid on the 9th, and received a very flattering reception from the patriots in that place. Among other marks of respect, a concert was given in honour of his arrival. The General proceeded the following day on his journey to Oviedo, and the place of his exile was the scene of renewed triumph. He was met at some distance from j Peals Of artillery welcomed his arrival. The deputation from Gosport proceeded, in an elegant barge, with a band playing " God save the King," and accompanied by numerous boats. They were received on board the Royal George, by Sir Edmund Neaglc, who introduced them to the Royal presence, on the quarter- deck. Major- General Neville read the address. His Majesty bowed several times to the Gentlemen who formed the deputation during the reading of the address, and returned a most gracious answer. Before the deputation from Gosport could quit the the town by the members of the Patriotic Society, who Royal yacht, the deputation from Portsea came alongonoared him With a public entry. • side ; it consisted of 300 boats, each, bearinir the Union Election of the Lord MuyOr of London, for the ensuing Year. On Friday last, Sept. 29, a Common Hall was held to return two names from the list of aldermen who have served the office Sheriff, to the Court of Aldermen, one of whom to be nominated by the said Court to the office of Mayor— The following names were read over by the Common Serjeant, and received with clamours and applauses by a numerous assemblage of liverymen, in front soon after went on board his barge, and lauded at the of the hustings.— Sir M. Bloxam, Christopher Magnay, ' - Esq. Wm. Heygate, Esq. B. Cox, Esq. John Thomas Thorpe, Esq. Richard ltothwell, Esq. and Matthew Wood, Esq. The show of hands was declared to be in favour of John Thomas Thorpe, and Matthew Wood, I the Sheriffs for the past year were ' racter. He proved from his own knowledge of continental manners, that the dance of the Turks, of whicl so much had been said, was frequently witnessed by hundreds of ladies without any imputation against their modesty, and declared it not to be so indecent as the dances at the Opera- house. Mr. P. Moore followed with a very able speech, and then the Chairman read the following resolutions, which were carried unanimously: Resolved.— 1. That the close of the case against the Queen at the bar of the House of Lords, confirms the strong public presumption of her Majesty's innocencc, which her dignified rejection of a criminal compromise, and the intrepidity with which she faced her accusers, had at first inspired. 2. That no witness manifestly credible has been examined against the Queen, with the exception of Captains Pechell and Briggs, whose depositions are favourable to her Majesty. 3. That the rate of pay and the accommodation provided for the foreign witnesses against the Queen greatly exceed all reasonable compensation for travelling exflenses and loss of time; that they are incompatible with lonest testimony, and amount to subornation of perjury. 4. That the exaggerated statements ill the opening speech of the Attorney- general are harsh, cruel, ana unbecoming; and that he has not even ventured to call witnesses to prove them at the bar. 5. That it seems probable that a dark and diabolical conspiracy against the life and honour of her Majesty will be developed in the course of these proceedings side: it consisted of 300 boats, each, bearing the Union Jack at her stern, and proceeding in an undeviatirigline from the shore to the Royal squadron. The deputation was received in the same manner as that from Gosport, and the addressers of both deputations had the honour to kiss his Majesty's hand. After the ceremony, the crews of the several boats sang " God save the King," supported by a fine military band. The King was much - . . . v, . . . , ... . - , , • affected, Ib: u: tL h! i. gLhIl y gra-- ticf- ie1 d, He walked arm- in- arm and that his Majesty s Ministers appear to be deeply with Sir George Cockburn, on the quarter- deck— About twelve o'clock the two deputations retired— His Majesty implicated in the same. 6. That his Majesty's Ministers have wantonly and wickedly entrapped their Sovereign into the sanction of an oppressive and despotic persecution, in which tbe laws and the constitution are alike violated, the Throne Esqrs. The Common Serjeant then retired, to report their names to the Court of Aldermen, and, after an int^- val of half an hour, John Thomas Thorpe, Esq. Alderman and Draper, was declared duly elected. That gentleman was then invested with the Chain of office, amidst peals of loud applause, He then came forward, and in a short speech thanked the livery for the honour that had been conferred on him. As an individual, he could only ascribe his elevation to that attachment to civil and religious liberty which he had always acted upon. He had a deep responsibility which had been imposed upon him, and should he in any thing be so unhappy as to fail in his duty, he intreated that Ilis indulgent fellow- citizens would impute the fault to on inadequacy of head, rather than to an error of the heart. — Mr. Galloway then came forward to perform, he said, Royal Stairs, Portsmouth. He was received with the most joyous acclamations. He was met by Sir George I . Cook, K. C. B. the Governor of the town, accompanied ! brought into danger, and Royalty into contempt; and by numerous officers of the fleet and army. His Majestv I t h a t th? sald Ministers deserve impeachment for this dined with the Earl of Arran, at Bognor, and thence and v a"° u s ° the. r >}' gh crlmes a n d misdemeanours, proceeded to Brighton. On the 2d Oct. it was expected I That independent press of. these realms, that his Majesty would leave Brighton for London. Witnesses for the Queen— On ( Saturday last, twenty Italians arrived at Dover: an immense concourse of spectators assembled on the beach : the enthusiasm was almost equal to tHc arrival of the Queen : the sailors jumped into the sea, and brought the men on shore in their arms : they arrived at ten o'clock, but it was five before they got their certificates from the Custom- house. They went off in two coaches, preceded through the town by a band of music. They arrived at Hammersmith at eight o'clock the following morning, and lodgings were provided in a house situated in High street, Hammersmith. Among the witnesses arrived at Dover is said te be Louis Bergami, the brother of the Baron. well provincial as metropolitan, is intitled to the grateful thanks of this meeting, for its generous and uniform support of her Majesty, under the most unmanly persecution which has ever yet sullied the annals of English history; and that this meeting views with satisfaction the civil attitude of the kingdom, alike firm and forbearing, to which its unintimidated press has most signally conduced. These resolutions were seconded by Mr. Thelwall, arid supported in a speech of great eloquence by Mr. Hume. On thanks being voted to Alderman Wood, the worthy Alderman in returning his acknowledgments, said he could congratulate the assembly on the evidence already produced, but on the evidence that was to be produced, he could more \ han tongratulate tlicm. That On Monday se'nnight upwards of twenty addresses were presented to her Majesty, including those from Cripplegate and Farringdon Wards, and Spitalfields, which were carried in proccssion from the parishes of Paddington and St. Luke's Edmonton ; from Manchester, Coventry, Leeds, Birmingham, Teverton, Stroud, Kettering and Leicester. The windows of every house were lined, and mostly decorated with white ribbons and laurel, and the throngs attendant on the processions were endless, including a greater number of well, dressed people, females in particular, than were ever before noticed. The procession from the Ward of FarringdoR was headed by Aid. Waithman in his private carriage, preceded by four beadles on horseback, bearing gilt maces. The gentlemen of the Ward went in twenfour open landaus, drawn by four horses each, and ten carriages with pairs. In answer to their address, the Queen observed, 44 Anarchy is the greatest of all evils ; but anarchy is usually the climax of bad government. Bad government sacrifices the interests of the many to that of the few, till the very elements of the social scheme, wanting the strongest cement of the common good, are so shuttered and disjointed, that they can hardly be held together by any principle from within, or any power from without. The vessel of the state is then cast for a time, like a scattered wreck, upon the waters of strife. If the people ask me 4 what are we to do in the present peril of the constitution ?' I answer, my people, my friends, my children, be united, be temperate, be firm. Let justice be your constant guide, your regulating principle. Suffer not yourselves to be hurried into the approbation of any measures, however specious they may seem, that have not justice for their beginning, and the general welfare for their end. I. ct liberty be the object of your unfeigned devotion, your unbounded love: but on one side of liberty } « . ice justice, and on the other, humanity 1 Without these two fair associates, liberty is apt to bccome a devastating tempest, or a consuming fire." The Spitalfields deputation was headed by fourteen gentlemen of the committee on horseback, bearing blue wands tipped with gold, after whom came a barouche and four, bearing the grand flag of the Silk Weavers, the field of crimson, with an oval shield of white, charged with an allegorical device, both sides of the flag presenting the same design and colours : it is accounted the most finished and elaborate production of the loom. Then followed a line of twenty- six barouches, drawn by four horses each, the postillions being clothed in jackets of rich yellow satin. In answer to this deputation her Majesty remarked:—" That the great fault in the statesmen of modern times, was their not keeping pace with the increased knowledge and improving sentiments of the age. Those of our own country are still children, while the nation has grown up to manhood. Her heart, her Majesty added, was sensibly touched with a sense of those miseries which the inhabitants of Spitalfields mention, as characterising the general state of the country ; but she lamented evils for which she could not furnish a remedy." The deputation from the Ward of Cripplegate Within was in thirty close carriages. On their address she observed :—" In the conflict she was waging with her adversaries in defence of her violated rights, she was de. fending the rights of every Englishman. If successful ( she said) the victory would redound less to her own sa. tisfaction, than to that she should derive from securing the rights of individuals, and the general liberties of the nation, against the domineering views of tiiat selfish faction, an enemy to. every improvement of the political condition of man in this country, and in every part of the world." The next was the Aldgate deputation in eighteen close carriages and four. Two beadles, on horseback, with maces, led the way. The ladies in these carriages were elegantly dressed, and the whole afforded an interesting spectacle. Last in order, but not in attraction, was the deputation from Paddington. Sir Gerard Noel, Mr. P. Moore, and Mr. Hume, were greeted with loud acclamations. The carriage of the Rev. Mr. Thatcher was followed by six barouches, one with six, the rest with four horses, mostly grey, which contained the committee, the members of which bore white wands, and wore at the end of a blue ribband a large medal, the front of which was stampt with the profile of the Queen: the members of Parliament, viz. Sir G. Noel, Mr. P. Moore, and Mr. Hume, followed next in their private carriages. After these came twenty- eight barouches and four, which weie again followed by about six coaches and pairs filled I S e o . s » e THE UVERPOOLMERCURY^ 1| 0T with the parishioners, the gieater part being elegantly dressed females. Mr. P. Moore and Mr. Elliee presented the Coventry address. Her Majesty's answers to the addresses from Birmingham and Manchester, Leeds, and York, dwelt upon the malignity of her persecutors, and the unprecedented means they had adopted to ruin her. Two addresses, one from ( he inhabitants of S. t. L, uke's parish, the other from the fetnales of the sanae, were preseated oa Thursday- se'nnight to her Majesty. The deputations passed through the Strand about two e'clsck. There were fifty- two post coaches and four, two postillions to each carriage, the piajor part in blue jackets; there was likewise a train consisting of several carriages, the postillions of which were dressed in yellow satin— The ladies, elegantly dressed, led the procession in twenty- five of the carriages; the gentlemen, six in each carriage, all wearing white favours, then followed— The people cheered them loudly as they passed. An address to the Queen from the female inhabitants of Newbury, is now in course of signature. It has already recivcd upwards of 500 respectable names, and is to be presented by the Honourable Keppel Craven. On Monday morning last, the metropolis presented a scene of unusual animation. The supporters of the addresses had put every carriage in requisition, while the most interesting and splendid spectacle was that of the ship- builders of the port of London. This procession consisted of several thousands of that interesting class of mechanics, all decently dressed, and wearing wliite favours and gilt oak leaves. The flags and banners, many of which were very elegant, were numerous, and models af various sections of ships were borne on poles. Four bands of music were interspersed in various pqrts of the procession. According to the order of the procession, as given in the London papers, we perceive that numerous flags with inscriptions made part of the procession, which proceeded from Stepney at eight o'clock, and passed through the principal line of streott of London and Westminster. They were every where loudly cheered ; and, on passing the Royal Exchange, they gave three loud huzzas. [ For the- procession of: ihe Watermen, see our Supplementary Number.] THE UUEEN S R E P L Y TO TIIK MANCHESTER ADDR3SS. " I receive with great satisfaction this loyal, affectionate, and impressive Address, from so numerous, so useful, and so efficient a part of the community as the artisans, mechanics, and labouring classes of the town of Manchester. The true honour of the country has been in the highest degree promoted by their incomparable skill apd their unrivalled ingenuity, while their persevering industry has so largely contributed towards the means of maintaining the dignity of the throne and the power and glory of the kingdom. " No time nor circumstances can remove from my mind that beloved object which so vividly excites your kind condolence, and still so tenderly interests my affections. If this calamity frustrated the fond hopes of the people, how much did it deduct from the sum of my happiness, and add to the number of my woes ! It aggravated my other manifold afflictions, by the invention of a new conspiracy, which, if it was not in its origin more detestable than the former, was certainly more formidable in its aspect, more artful in its contrivance, more extensive in its ramifications, and more powerful in its means. My own innocence, combined with the good sense and justice of the people, has been at once my solace and my support under this new and terrible persecution. ' ' Ihe conspiracy by which I have been attacked, has already been more than half vanquisiied by the flagitiousness of its chiefs and the turpitude of its- auxiliaries. The most artful combinations of perjury cannot long endure the piercing scrutiny of truth. " I am happy to perceive that the industrious ( lasses of the town of Manchester, as well as in the rest of the kingdom, regard the unconstitutional attack upon my rights as an illegal invasion of their own. The bill of Pains and Penalties, which threatens my degradation, weakens the security of that sacred tenure by which every Briton is protected in his liberty, his property, and his life. He who venerates a free constitution will indignantly repel the introduction of arbitrary power in any of its varied forms. " We paturally compassionate the severe privations and deep sufferings even of the idle and dissolute ; but how much more forcibly is our sympathy excited by such privations and sufferings when they are accumulated upon the industrious, laborious, frugal, and virtuous part of this exemplary community ! My mind has indeed been eften agonized by the recollection of that dreadful day, to which the industrious classes of Manchester particularly allude; but « hile we cannot but know that the same hand has been our common oppres • sor, let us, as far as we are able, bury the past in oblivion ; and trust that, though these things have been, they will be no more ! Let us endeavour to calm the perturbed passions and to heal the bleeding wounds of our distracted and laceiated country ; and, for myself, though my afflictions have been many in number and long in continuance, I 6hall think them all amply compensated if they should, at last, prove the means of contributing towards the harmony, the prosperity, and the happiness of the kingdom." Naples aad Sicily— By an article in the Paris paper ( the Constitutionel), it would appear that all the differences between the Sicilians and the Neapolian Governments are at an end. A vessel from Palermo to Genoa had brought the intelligence, that on the arrival of the Neapolitan squadron, with Genral Pepe oil board, the Jnnta at Palermo accepted the propositions made by the Neapolitan Government— The same information states, that rfie Austrian force in Italy amounts to 50,000 men, of which 26,000 were in the Venetian territories and the rest in Lombardy. The Pope has refused the security of an Austrian garrison, preferring a levy of men in the papal states.— According to a Vienna article of the Mth ult. regiments of infantry from Pest are marching for Italy; and the saise article asserts, that, by a special treaty, the Sovereigns of the German confederation were to send troops into Italy, to join the Austrian army. Still it is expected that the final determination of Austria respecting Naples, will depend upon the result of a Congress of the Ministers of the great Coures, which is to sit at Vienna. DR. MEYLOR'S P L A N OF V E N T I L A T I O N. BIRTH OF A PRINCE OF FRANCE. The Moniteur of the 29th Sept. announces, that her Royal Highness the Duchess of Bern is happily delivered of a Prince ; and it is added, that the mother and child are doing favourably. DINNER OF THE VORK WHIG CLUB. On Tuesday se'nnight, the Annual Dinner ef the York Whig Club took place; and the company consisted of above four hundred persons. About four o'clock the company took their seat:, S. W. Nicholl, Esq. in the chair. On the health of the city members, Mr. Wyvill arose, and assured the company that the votes he had given in the House of Commons had been influenced by nothing but a full conviction that to oppose the present system was to advance the public good. He should oppose the Bill of Pains and Penalties; because the accusers of the Queen made a part of the tribunal by which she was tried : the Bill was a most dangerous encroachment on the constitution. Mr. Chaloner characterised the Bill against the Queen, as an irregular Divorce Bill. If it passed it would be one of the most extraordinary measures that had ever been adopted in this country. He would ask from whom it originated. We were told, and seriously too, that the King had nothing to do with the investigation : oh, no ! poor man, he was no party in it, ' not lie ! Then, the ministers say they were drawn into it; or that it . was forced upon them. Surely nobody would say that the people brought it forward.

It has been lately introduced into the extensive establishment of Stqnyhurst College, the president of which has transmitted to Dr. M. the following very flattering and decisive testimony of its success. Stonyhurst College, 2.9th Sept. 182 « Doctor Meyler having been employed to ventilate Stonyhurst College, aiid his plan of ventilation having been in operation for a sufficient time to enable us to judge of its effects, we feel great pleasure in bearing our testimony in favour of its merit, and in stating that it has fully answered those favourable expectations which we were led to entertain of it.. Dr. M. having been furnished with testimonials from others, which enter more fully into the details of the means employed by him to effect this important measure, it becomes the less necessary for us to advert to these particulars ; and perhaps every necessary purpose will be answered by stating, that, without suffering any inconvenience from partial currents of air, we are now completely relieved from a very considerable degree of offensive annoyance, to which we were previously subjected. In particular, we advert to the inconvenience resulting from the necessaries, the smell from which pervaded the house to a considerable extent, when the wind blew in a particular direction. Dr. M. has not only succeeded in preventing any offensive odour from finding its way into the house, but he has also removed, to a very considerable degree, the unpleasant smell in the necessary itself. The air of the chapel also, which was at all times close anU disagreeable from the number of persons occupying it, is now, in consequence of Dr. M.' s plan of ventilation, perfectly sweet aud pure, and this without any inconvenience." We state. again from authority, that there is no foundation whatever for the assertion, that several sail ofthe line, with 40 frigates, and other ships to carry troops, are jitting out for an expedition— Courier.

It appeared from the statementbefore the magistrate, that Mr. I. ang and Mr. Tetlow nhe two offenders in question) were soliciting subscriptions to defray the expenses incidental to the obtainment of signatures. Passing frtim shop ta shop, in due course they arrived at that now in the occupation of Mr. Heffor, by whom they were instantly seized, and delivered over into the custody of an officer. The next morning ( Tuesday) at 12, ttiecase came on before Mr. Norris. Tlie Boroughreeve was sitting on the bench. The defendants were immediately set at liberty, and, the box having been returned to them, they departed out of the court with a numerous body of their friends. South America.— Private accounts from Kio Janeiro are of an impot tant nature. Letters from Baliia, Per iijunbueo, and other northern parts of the Brazils, are written evidently under the apprehension of the occurrence of some great event. It is believed, that the projected rovolution in Portugal was known in the Brazils as early as June hist; and it is suspected that the example of the inhabitants of Oporto will speedily, manifest itseif iu tiie Portuguese colonies. M. Rrrgami.— The Pans papers a( the 28th ult. state, that the Baron Bergami arrived tiie preceding day at the French capital, and immediately set forwards with post- horses for Calais.— On the same day his sister, the Countess Qidi, passed through Paris, on her way to jLondon. torrent of fredom in Portugal: an act quite consistent with the unholy acts of tile Holy Alliance. But the efforts of such puny slaves would be as fruitless, even with the great Jlussian Barb'irian at their head, as an attempt to arrest the sun in his progress. Henry Witliam, Esq. of Lartington- hall, contended ably for the repeal or modification of the Penal Statutes against the Catholics. Where, he asked, lay the distinction between the Indian slave and the British Catholic ? Why, the body of one, when in fault, is chastised with a cato'- nine- tails, but the soul, the mind, of the other, whose only object, after his God, is his country's welfare, is debased and degraded by the pityless laws of his native land. On the health of Ottiwell Wood, Esq and the constitutional friends of liberty in Liverpool, Mr. Ottiwell Wood returned thanks for the handsome manner in which his Liverpool friends as well as himself had been noticed. He sincerely regretted that some of those friends were not present: that the eloquence of a Williams, of a Shepherd, or of a Roscoe, might acknowledge tile kindness more adequately than he had ability to do. If he mistook not, the club was associated to maintain the principles which seated the illustrious House of Brunswick upon the throne of these realms; to uphold the declaration made by his present Majesty, when Prince of Wales, in his correspondence with ; ne late Mr. Pitt, on occasion of the llegency— " that lie held the Crown for the benefit of the people," and also to assert the Sovereignty of the people, and that all legitimate power emanates from, and is delegated by them, and on this is built the present admirable form of government in this country, by King, Lords, and Commons.— Mr. O. Wood then went on to 3iow how the present administration had lost sight of these principles, until the country was overwhelmed with an immense load of taxes, the people poor and dissatisfied, and the British name and character disgraced. Of this we need not wonder, when we reflect upon the political integrity of a Canning, and the tender mcrcMS of a Castlereagli and a Sidmouth. Mr. 0 Wood concluded by strongly insisting on the necessity of parliamentary reform On the health of Mr. John Wood being given, that gentleman rose and eloquently supported the principles of the York Whig Club; and took occasion to animadvert on the language and conduct of Mr. Canning, the great opponent of parliamentary reform— Though that facetious statesman had professed the greatest esteem and attachment to his Royal Mistress, and liau declared that the Queen was the grase and ornament of the female sex, let is never be forgS'ten, that he had deserted her in the hour of utmost need.— The meeting separated at ah early hour, highly gratified with the great unanimity and interesting incidents of the evening. Samuel Yates Benyon, Esq. is, appointed Vice- Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, vice Sir William David Evans, Knight, appointed Recorder of gambay. tunate brazier who formed the token of our shame. " My dear friends, the object of our meeting together to- night is, that you may have an opportunity ef proposing a reward to injured innocence; and pray let it be of greater value than a metal horse collar: but I modestly leave it to the generosity of my brave accomplices." The president being silent, one of tbe fraternity arose, and seizing goblet that had just been replenished with punch, proposed " That their four leading men should each have a silver cun." At which each member looked askance at his neighbour. " I understand you," said the honourable mover, " your looks say—' Who's to pay for the silver cups ?' Why, if we cannot raise the money in any other way, let them be paid for out of * the fund for loyal addresses,' aye, let the town pay for them." To this they agreed, nem. con. The cups were ordered; and they are now nearly ready to be presented to the " Collar'd Brawns," of Warrington— alias Knights of ihe " Horse Collar,"— alias Knights of the " Goblet." I conclude by observing that where it has been customary ( at races, wakes, or fairs,) to offer prizes to those who can display die most grotesque features through a horse collar, none will dare to vie with the loyal men of Warrington ; for should the latter attend, they will bear off all the prtees, bemg far superior to any who have ever yet stood forward as grinning candidates. While some for testers risk their pence, Or stake a hog to gain a dollar ; The Wa, rington lads win silver cups, By gunning through a horse's collar. Should what I have written be worth notice, I may, in my next, give some account of the inscriptions on the cups. I am yours respectfully, DON QOTXOTTE.

Her mother was sister to the late King— consequently she is the first cousin of her husband— 3iis • present Majesty. She was born on the 17th of May, 1763. Her father's court at Wolfenbuttle, in Germany, was the general resort of those galldht officers, who had served with honour and distinction in the wars of, Europe. It was also the refuge of some brave but unfortunate foreigners, who had become voluntary or proscribed exiles from their native land. The first fifteen • years of the life of her Majesty were passed in the attainment of those accomplishments suited to her rank, and were undistinguished by any events of a singular or extraordinary character. Itmaybe necessury toobserve, however, that the court of the Duke her father, partook of that freedom of manners which is described to exi3t in various parts of the Continent, and which, from the rigid notions of delicacy which exist in this country, we have been taught in some degree to condemn. It is stated, that at the age of fifteen, a period of our lives when the heart is most susceptible of lively impressions. a gentleman fromthe sister kingdom, of prepossessing manners and elegant appearance, arrived at her father's court. The first acquaintance between the Duke of Brunswick and'this gentleman wasformeri after a hardfought battle on the French frontier, in which the aiJies hat! been victorious. The personal intrepidity of the young officer was conspicuous, and was observed by the Duke himself, wh » praised his conduct on the fieJtl witithe frankness of a soldier, raised him to the rank. of Colonel, and appointed him one of his own Aides- decamp. An attachment is said to have sprung up between this gentleman and the young Princess, which excited the displeasure of the Duke. This attachment was strengthened by subsequent circumstances of a romantie nature, into the detail of which our limits will not permit us to enter. Suffice it to say, that after the lapse of several years, and on the eve of the Princess being brought to this country tofcemarried to his present Majesty, ( then Prince of Wales) a wild and desperate attempt was made by the gentleman in. question, aided by an Irish nobleman. This was defeated by the vigilance of her father. She was rescued from the danger by which she was threatened, and safely took place in April 1796, twelve months after the marri a^ e, and three months after the birth of the Princess Charlotte of Wales. It was preceded hy seme negotiation, in which Lord and Lady Cholmondeley took part, by conveying to his Royal Highness a desire on the part of the Princess, to know the terms on wh& h they were to live. The following letter was at this period w< Upn by the Prince of Wales to her Royal Highness : " Windsor Castle, April 80, K9C. " Madam,— As Lord Cholmondeley informs me that you wish I would define, in writing, the terms upon which „ . ... „ we are to live, I shall endeavour to explain mwself upon conveyed to our shores. I he authors of the intended that head with as much clearness, and with as much prooutrage were for some tune confined in prison, but even- ! priety as the nature of the subject will admit. Our intually escaped. The one was subsequently reported to clinations are not in our power; nor should either of us have been killed at the battle of Hohen Linden, and the i be held answerable for the other, because nature has not oi< f. 1 I r, ^ ..., — 4-. ,. -.! " other fell a victim to certain vision ~ a . r - y sche1m es int' o— wi. hic1h. " „ 1_ I - i « . , - » . i , he had entered with regard to his own country. On the arrival of the Princess, in company with those distinguished persons who had been appointed to conduct her to the British Court, she was received with all those marks of respect to which her intended connection with tlie son ar. d heir of the throne entitled her. The public journals of that day were lavish in their praises of her beauty and accomplishments, and spared no pains in giving due eclat to the splendid ceremony of the marriage, which took place on the 8th of April, 1795, in presence of the King and Queen, and of all the persons of elevated rank in the kingdom. The nation testified their satisfaction upon the occasion by addresses which poured in from all quarters, and in which the happy couple were congratulated on their union. It may not perhaps be forgotten, that at the time when this marriage was on the tapis, the Prince had incurred considerable debts, to the amount of £ 639,890. A promise, it was said, had been made in a certain quarter to discharge these debts without an application to Parliament. Whether this was the case or not we have not ourselves sufficient information to state with certainty; but it appears that the subject was actually brought before Parliament, and the King in his message to the houses, in about 20 days after the marriage took place, asked for an establishment to be settled upon the Prince and his august spouse telling them at the same time, that the benefit of any such settlement could not be effectually secured to the Prince till he was relieved from the incumbrances under which he laboured to a large amount. Upon this ground the Prince's annual allowances from tlie nation were augmented. They were raised at once from £ G0,000 per annum to £ 125,000 per annum; and of this sum £ 25 ,000 a year were set apart for the discharge of his debts. To this was added a sum of £ 27,000 for preparations for the marriage ; i' 28,000 for jewels and plate; and £ 26,000 for furnishing Carlton- house. Thus, at least, the Prince was relieved from pecuniary encumbrances, and if this alone were calculated to ensure his quiet, all might have been well. There are other sources of human happiness and misery, however, which cannot at all times be controled. It is yet fresh in the recollection of many of us, that of all men calculated to excite the admiration of the visitors to his august father's court, no man possessed stronger powers of fascination than the Prince of Wales. He was alike the idol of his own and of the softer sex. Nature was bountiful in her gifts of personal attractions, and those gifts were improved ana rendered irresistible by the aids'of art. He was one of the most accomplished scholars of his age, and no man could exceed him in those other acquirements, which are known to stand in such high and deserved estimation among all ranks of society. He had too, a susceptible and open heart— and many instances are upon record, which evince the benignity and generosity of his disposition. With such feelings, it cannot be considered extraordinary, that he should occasionally have have become entangled in those snares which were constantly prepared for him, by those enchanting Circes who flitted about the court of St. James. Neither can we be surprised that he should himself, before lie ever thought of his present wife, have felt the power of that passion from which the coldest stoic is not at all times exempt. That he did feel that power we believe there is little reason to doubt; atid we mention this merely to show that causes may exist of a nature perfectly intelligible, which may operate as a bar to the existence of a sentiment of a similar character upon the mere suggestion of state policy. Without pursuing this subject further we shall proceed to state that it unhappily occurred within a few months of the nuptials of the Royal pair, that some circumstances arose calculated to disturb their domestic bliss. To what these circumstances were to be attributed we know not. They might have happened without ground of blame on either side, and might have arisen from the secret cabals of those who were jealous of those affections to which the Princess had obtained a legal claim; and who might have exerted a sort of Macliiavelian ingenuity in creating causes for discontent which did not previously exist. From whatever source, however, this discordance of sentiment had its rise, it was soon found to exist, and there were not wanting those who, from private reasons, felt a desire to increase rather than to diminish its influence. In the end a separation took place, although the parties still lived under the same roof. In this painful state matters remained— no mutual friend was found to stev in and endeavour to procure a reconciliation. The breach became wider, and it would seem, became irreparable a short time afterwards, in consequence of the following circumstance: among the clergymen and chaplains appointed to attend upon the late" Queen was one gentleman whose ability alone, unaided by any influence, had attracted the royal favour. This individual being advised, for his health, to try the waters of Baden, and some other places in Germany, he made his arrangements for taking his departure. Previous to setting out on his. journey, he waited upon her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales at Carlton- house, and expressed his willingness to execute any commission she might be disposed to entrust to his charge, either in conveying letters to her mother, the Duchess of Brunswick, or otherwise. The Princess accepted of his preferred service, and desired that he would call the next day for Iier commands. He called accordingly, and received from the hands of her Rpyal Highness certain letters which he was. charged to deliver safely into the hands of the Duchess of Brunswick. He promised compliance, and set out from London. No sooner had he reached the port from whence he was about to embark, however, that he received an express announcing to him the dangerous indisposition of his wife. He returned to town without delay, and with some degree of incaution delivered the despatches entrusted to his care by the Princess to a person by whom their contents were afterwards bo* rayed. It has been rumoured, that these letters contained matter calculated to excite displeasure in the mind of one to whom the Prince of Wales was wont to pay implicit obedience, and that a feeling of dislike, never afterwardsyeradicated, took immediate possession of her soul. In sueh a ( state of things, it is needless to say, that the chances of renewed affection became every day still more remote. A veil of mystery was thrown over the whole affair, which has never since been completely removed, and,' in the end, the Princess, after beiig " delivered of ker ever- to- be- Iumenied flaughter. became the inhabitant cf a separate establishment en Blackbeath. This final separation made us suitable to each other. Tranquil and comfoitable society is, however, in our power; letourinteroourse therefore, be restricted to that; and I will distinctly subscribe to the condition which yourequired through Lady Cholmondeley, that even in the event of any accident happening to my daughter, which I trust, Providence will in its mercy avert, I shall not infringe the terms of the restriction, by proposing, at any period, a connection of a tnore particular nature. I shall now finally olose this disagreeable correspondence; trusting that, as we have completely explained ourselves to each other, the rest of our lives will be passed in uninterrupted tranquillity. " I am, Madam, with great truth very sincerely your's, ( Signed) " G E O R G E P." To this her Royal Highness returned the following answer: " The avowal of your conversation with Lord Cholmondeley neither surprizes nor offends me. It merely confirmed what you tacitly insinuated for this twelvemonth. But after this, it would be a want of delicacy, or rather an unworthy meanness in me, were I to complain of those conditions which you impose upon yourself. I should have returned no answer to your letter, if it had not been conceived in terms to make it doubtful whether this arrangement proceeds from you or from me ; and you are aware that the credit of it belongs to you alone. The letter which you announce to me as the last, obliges me to communicate to the King, as to my sovereign and to my father, both your avowal and my answer. You wiS find enclosed the copy ef my letter to the King. I apprize you of it, that I may not incur the slightest reproach of duplicity from you. As I have at this moment no protector but his Majesty, I refer myself to him entirely on this subject; and' if my conduct meet his approbation, I shall be, in some degree at least, consoled. I retain every sentiment of gratitude for the situation in which I tind myself, as Princess of Wales, enabled by your means to indulge in the free exercise of a virtue dear to my heart, I mean charity. It will be my duty likewise to act upon another motive, that of giving an example of patience and resignation under every trial. Do me the justice to believe that I shall never cease to pray for your happiness, and to be your most devoted " 6t h M a y , 179G" " C A R O L I N E ." From this period her Royal Highness resided in Mom tague- house, Blackheath, without having had any communication with her husband. There, in 1801, she became accidentally acquainted with Lady Douglas, the wife of Sir John Douglas, who, as an officer of marines, greatly distinguished himself at the siege of St. Jean d'Acre, when that place was so bravely defended by Sir Sidney Smith against Buonaparte. Lady Douglas and her husband soon became extremely intimate with the Princess. This intimacy continued until 1804, when the Princess, after some previous bickerings, dismissed Lady Douglas from her society. In the beginning of November, 1805, his Royal Highness ihe Duke of Sussex informed the Prince of Wales, that Sir John Douglas had communicated to him some circumstances in the conduct of the Brincess of Wales, which it was of especial consequence to the honour of his Royal Highness, and to the purity of the Royal Succession, should be made known to him. He added, that Sir John Douglas had empowered hinj to say, that both himself and Lady Douglas were ready to make a full disclosure of all they'knew, if they should be called upon so to do. And the Duke of Sussex intimated " that his lloyal Highness the Duke of Kent, had been partly acquainted with the matter twelve months before." ' l'he Prince of Wales in consequence called on the Duke of Kent, his Royal brother, to tell him what had been communicated to him, and to ask him why, for a whole year, he had kept from his knowledge a matter in which the honour of the Royal family was so deeply interested ? His Royal Highness the Duke of Kent, without hesitation, made a declaration to this effect. That about the end of the year 1804, he had received a note from the Princess of Wales, in which she stated that she had got into an unpleasant altercation with Sir John and Lady Douglas ab « ut ar. anonj mous letter and a filthy drawing which they had presumed to impute to her Royal Highness. She requested the Duke of Kent to interfere, and to prevent the matter going further. His Royal Highness therefore applied to Sir Sydney Smith, and through him, procured an interview with Sir John Douglas. The latter said that he was convinced that both the anonymous letter and the loose drawing were by the hand of the Princess, and that her design was to provoke Sir J. Douglas to a duel with his old friend Sir S. Smith, by reason of the gross insinuation conveyed respecting Lady Douglas and Sir Sydney. The Duke succeeded iii prevailing upon Sir J. Douglas to abstain from his purpose of commencing a prosecution, or of in any way stirring further in the business, as he was at once satisfied of the falsehood of the insinuation in question, " and tolerably certain that both fabrications were, in fact, some gossiping story, in which the Princesshad no hand. Sir John Douglas, notwithstanding, spoke of the Princess's conduct with great indignation, and only promised to abstain from further; investigation for the preseut; hut he would giveno promise of preserving silence in case of further. annoyance. The Duke ot' Kent concluded by stating that nothing further being then communicated to him, and having succeeded in stoning the altercation, he had not thought fit? to trouble his Royal Highness with a story that'might rest entirelv on the misapprehension of both parties. I. ady Douglas and her husband, after this, that is to say, in the month of December, in that year, gave it:, as she stated, in consequence of commands to that purpose from the Prince of Wales, a written statement of ' acts, relative to the language and behaviour of his w ife, and particularly relative to tiie birth of a child, which she asserted the Princess to have brought into the world in 1802. Thus in possession of an assertion of his wife's criminality, the Princo lost but little time in laying, the statement before bis father, who, on the ,20th of May, 1806, issued a warrant to the four Lords, Erskine, Spencer, Grenville, and F. llenborough. to examine into the matter. The four Lords having thus got , their authority for acting, assembled, and called such persons as ( hey chose, in order to examine them on oath, touching the matters alleged against the Prir. eess. When their Lordships bod gone through the examination, beginning with those of Lady and Sir Jotw afl • fa ' 1 1830. THE LIVERPOOL MERCURY HI Douglas, they made, agreeable to the warrant under wkiefi th. oy acted, a report thereof to the King. The fflbrwingfis an extract of the report: •• May it please your Majesty: your Majesty having been graciously pleased, by an instrument under your Majesty's royal sign manual, a copy of which fs annexed to this report, to " authorize, empower, and direct us \ t « enquire into the tiuth of certain written declarations, 1 touching the conduct of her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales, an abstract of which had been laid before your Majesty, and to examine upon oath such persons as we should see fit, touching and concerning the same, and to report to your Majesty the result of such examinations." We have, in dutiful obedience to your Majesty's commands, proceeded to examine the several witnesses, the copies of whose depositions we nave hereunto annexed; and, in further execution of the said commands, we now most respectfully submit to your Majesty the report of fhese examinations, as it has appealed to us; bnt we beg leave, at the same time, humbly to refer your Majesty, for more complete information, to the examinations themselves, in order to correct any error of judgment, into which we have unintentionally fallen, with respect to any part of this business. " We accordingly first examined on oath the principal informants, Sir Joseph Douglas and Charlotte his wife: who both positively swore, the former to his having observed the fact of the pregnancy of her Royal Highness; and the latter to all the important particulars contained in her former declaration, and above referred so. Their allegations are annexed to this report, and are circumstantial and positive. The most material of these examinations, into the truth of which we had keen directed to enquire, being thus far supported by the oath of the parties from whom they had proceeded, we then felt it our duty to follow up the enquiry by the examination of such other persons as we judged best able to afford us information as to the facts in question. We thought it beyond all doubt, that in this couts% of inquiry, many particulars must be learned which would be necessarily conclusive on the truth or falsehood of these declarations. So many persons must have been witnesses to tho appearances ot' an actually existing pregnancy; so many circumstances must have been attendant upon a real delivery ; and difficulties so numerous and insurmountable must have been. involved in any attempt to account for the infant in question, as the child of another woman, if it had been in fact the child, of the Princess, that we entertained a full and confident expectation of arriving at a complete proof, cither in the affirmative or negative, on this part of the sulyect This expectation was not disappointed. We are happy to declare to your Majesty our perfect conviction that there is no foundation whatever for believing that the. child now with the Princess is the child of her Royal Highness, or that she was delivered of any child in the year 1802; nor has any thing appeared to us which would warrant the belief that she was pregnant in that year, or at any other period tyithin the compass of our inquiries, '• The identity of the child now with the Princess, its parentage, the place and the date of its birth, the time and the circumstances o'f its being first taken under her Royal Highness's protection, are all established by such a concurrence both of positive and circumstantial evidence, as can, in our opinion, leave no question on this part of the subject. That child was, beyond all doubt, born in the Brownlow- street Hospital, on the 11th day of July, 1802, of the body of Sophia Austin, and was first brought to the Princess's house in the month of November following. Neither should we be more warranted in expressing any doubt respecting the alleged pregnancy of the Princess, as stated in the original declarations, a fact so fully contradicted, and by so many witnesses, to whom, if true, it must in various ways have been known, that we cannot think it entitled to the smallest credit. The testimonies on these two points are contained in the annexed depositions and letters. We have not partially abstracted them in this feport, lest, by any unintentional omission, we might weaken their effect; but we humbly offer to your Majesty this pur clear and unanimous judgment upon them, formed on full deliberation, and pronounced without hesitation on the result of the whole inquiry. We do not, however, feel ouselves at liberty, much as we should wish it, to close our report here. Besides the allegations of the pregnancy and delivery of the Princess, those declarations on the whole of which your Majesty has been pleased to command us to inquire and report, contain, as we have already remarked, other particulars respecting the conduct of her Royal Highness, such as must, especially considering her exalted rank and station, necessarily give occasion to very unfavourable interpretations. From tire various depositions and proofs annexed to this report, particularly from the examinations of Robert Bidgood, William Cole, Frances Lloyd, and Mrs. Lisle, your Majesty will perceive that several strong circumstances of this description have been positively sworn to by witnesses, who cannot, in our judgment, be suspected of any unfavourable bias, and whose veracity, in this respect, we have seen no ground to question. On the precise bearing and effect of tile facts thus appearing, it is not for us to decide; these we sub. mit to your Majesty's wisdom ; but we conceive it to be our duty to report on this part of the inquiry as distinctly as on the former facts: that, as on the one hand, the facts of pregnancy and delivery are fo our minds satisfactorily disproved, so on the other hand we think, that the circumstances to which we now refer, particularly those stated to have passed between her Royal Highness and Captain Manby, must be credited until they shall reoeive some decisive contradiction ; and, if true, are justly entitled to the most serious consideration. " We cannot close this report without humbly assuring your Majesty that it was, on every account, our anxious wish to have executed this delicate trust with as little publicity as the nature of the case would possibly allow ; and we entreat your Majesty's permission to express our full persuasion, that if this wish has been disappointed, the failure is not imputable to any thing unnecessarily said or done by us. All whichis most humbly submitted to your Majesty. ( Signed) " EKSKINE, GRENVILLE. " S P E N C E R , E L L E N B O K O U G H. " July 1 4th, 1806. " A true copy, J. BECKET." This report was accompanied by copies of the. depositions which had been taken before their Lordships, and which neither our limits nor our inclinations will permit us here to insert. Many of them were characterised by details of the most indelicate andpiost improbable nature. [ In mere justice to the Princess, it must be here remarked that, as she was acquitted on the main charges without being called upon for any defence; so she was considered culpable on the minor accusations, also with, out being heard in her defence. On this account ( he repelled the intended reprimand, and insisted upon a iair trial.] The Princess, upon being furnished with a copy of this report, and its accompanying depositions, wrote several letters to the King; and those letters contained her defence against those minor charges with which the Lords Commissioners had left her tarnished. In the performance of this task, she had recourse to the legal advice and assistance of Mr. Spencer Perceval, the late* Chief Justice Gibbs, and the present Master of the Rolls, Sir Thomas Plomer. In the letters to which we allude, her Royal Highness, after a most able refutation of all which had been urged against her, concluded with a prayer to be restored to the presence of his Majesty at Court, and thus to be cleared in the eyes of the world. The King, having die dcfence of tbe Princess before him, and also her demands of justice at his hands, re ferred the letters to his Cabinet Ministers, and required their opinion and advice as to what he ought to do in the case. The Whigs, who were then in power, felt some difficulty as to the course which they should pursue; but, at length, on January 25, 1807, they came to a resolution in tiie form of a cabinet minute, in which, after adverting to the subject submitted to their consideration, thay concluded by stating, that " they have agreed humbly to recommend to your Majesty the draft and message, which if approved by your Majesty, they would humbly suggest your Majesty might send to her Royal Highness through the Lord Chancellor. Having before humbly submitted to your Majesty their opinion that the facts of the case did . not warrant their advising that any further steps should be taken upon it by your Majesty's government, they have not thought it necessary to advise your Majesty any longer to decline receiving the Princess into your Royal presence. But the result of the whole case does, in their judraient, render it indispcnsible that your Majesty should, by a serious admonition, convey to her Royal Highness your Majesty's expectation that her Royal Highness should be more circumspect in her future conduct." Pending the deliberations of the council, which led to this minute, the Princess, on the 8th of December, 1806, had written another letter to the King, urging a speedy decision on her case. The King, agreeably to the advice of his cabinet, sent a message to the Princess, through the Lord Chancellor Erskine, containing the admonition recommended in the minute of the cabinet above alluded to. This message was sent on the 28th of January, 1807. The Princess,. upon receiving it, immediately wrote to the King, intimating to him that she would wait upon him at Windsor on the Monday following. The King, the moment he received her letter, wrote back that he preferred receiving her in London upon a day subsequent to the ensuing week. To this letter the Princess returned no answer, and waited, of course, to hear from the King. Thus every thing appeared to be satisfactorily settled, and the Princess was about to be restored to society, when, at the request of his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, all further steps were suspended; that is to say, the receiving of ihe Princess by his Majesty was put off, until the Prince should be enabled to submit to the King a statement, which he proposed to make to him upon the papers relating to the Princess's defence, after consulting with his own lawyers. It was now that the advisers of the Princess began to change the tone of her letters, and from the plaintive to burst forth into the indignant. Her Royal Highness answered the letter of the King, communicating the circumstance last alluded to, on the 12th of February, 1807, intimating her design to represent to him, in another letter, the various grounds on which she felt the hardship of her case; winch was done in a latter dated the 16th of February, in a most able manner. At the close of the letter there was a threat of An appeal to the public," unless the Princess should be speedily received at Court, and also allowed some suitable establishment in some one of the Royal Palaces, if not in Carlton- house. To this letter she received no answer, and on the 5th of March, she wrote again to the King to say, that unless her requests were granted, the publication would not be withheld beyond the next Monday, which would have been on the 9th of March, 1807— The publication, or as it was afterwards called, " The Book," did not appear; but in fifteen days from that time, Mr. Perceval was Chancellor of the Exchequer. The publication being thus for a timeeftectually cheated, the Whig ministry, including the friends of the Prince, went out of office, and there was no longer any obstacle to the receiving of the Princess at court; and, accordingly, on the 21st of April, 1807, minutes were laid before the King, as a prelude to that step, in which the council declared as follows : " After the most deliberate consideration of the evidence which has been brought betore the commissioners, and of the previous examinations, as well as of the answer and observations which have been submitted to your Majesty upon them, they ( the cabinet) feel it necessary to delare their decided concurrence in the clear and unanimous opinion of the commissioners, confirmed by that of all your Majesty's late confidential servants, that the two main charges alleged against her Royal Highness of pregnancy and delivery are completely disproved ; aud they further submit to your Majesty,' their unanimous opinion that all the other particulars of conduct brought in accusation against her Royal Highness to which the character of criminality can be ascribed, are either satisfactorily contradicted, or rest upon evidence of such a nature, and which was given Wilder such circumstances, as render it, in the judgment of your Majesty's confidential servants, undeserving of credit. Your Majesty's confidential servants, therefore, concurring in that part of the opinion of your late servants, as stated in their minute of the 25th of January, that there is no longer any necessity for your Majesty being advised to decline receiving the Princess into your royal presence, humbly submit to your Majesty, that it is essentially necessary, in justice to her Royal Highness, and for the honour and interest of your Majesty's illustrious family, that her Royal Highness the PriHcess of Wales, should be admitted with as little delay as possible into your Majo6ty's royal presence; and that she should be received in a manner due to liar rank and station in your Majesty's court and family. Among the ministers sanctioning this minute,' were Lord Eldon, Lord Camden, Lord Westmoreland, the Duke of Portland, Earl Bathurst, Viscount Lord Castlereagh, Lord Mulgrave, Mr Canning, & c. There was a separate minute in which the council declined interfering, as to the assignment of apartments to the Princess, in one of the Royal Palaces, this being a subject purely of a private and domestic nature. Thus ended the matter at that time. The Princess was restored to her situation at court, with a reputation perfectly unsullied, although il had been so basely attacked, and to this period it may fairly be alleged, that if Providence had ordained that the event which we have so recently had to deplore, had not taken place, there was nothing in justice which could have deprived her Royal Highness of all those rights and dignities belonging to the Queen of England. [ The subsequent persecutions of the Princess, her separation from her child, the publication of " The Book," & c. are too recesit to require a republication in our columns.] SJcfeim of tlje ( Stictn. HOUSE OF LORDS, OCT. 3. Mr. Henry, since his arrival at Milan, has sent to England IS witnesses whom he considers necessary to the Queen's defence. He h^ s also sent home die small carriage in common use in Italy, capable of only holding two persons, by one of whom it is driven, and in which it has been charged as an offence of the Queen for travelling with Bergaiu. This day the House met at ten o'clock. Prayers were read; and a desultory conversation arose respecting the conduct of Colonel Brown and Marietti, the ministers endeavouring to vindicate the conduct of the former, and Lord Holland contending that whatever blame was removed from the Colonel was thrown direct upon the Government. The Queen's counsel were then called to the bar. Mr. Brougham now addressed the House, and said he was not agitated at appearing before their Lordships, by the natural timidity at addressing so august an assembly; he Was not daunted by the complex character of these strange and anamalous proceedings.— These considerations, powerful as thev might appear to some persons, could not for a moment shake his confidence, or embarrass him in the discharge of his duty; but he would not conceal from their Lordships that he was concerned much— so much that he could scarcely proceed, by the consideration that he might feel it due to his illustrious Client, to his own feelings, and to the eternal interests of justice, at some future stage of the proceedings, to protest, as a loyal subject, and an Englishman, against judgment being given against her Majesty by the tribunal before which her honour had been traduced so basely. Their Lordships would remember that her Majesty landed in England in the year 1795. He would ask if the gross and cruel conduct which had been ever since manifested towards her, did not give him an undoubted right of recrimination? But he had to thank God that her Ma • jesty's case stood too high to render the exercise of such a right at all an object of importance. He begged the House, however, to understand, that, whatever he might feel as a man, he owed it to his character as a lawyer not_ to surrender the privilege of recrimination. Her Majesty's cause was too good; the proofs of her innocence too strong to reguire such assistance; but particular circumstances might arise hereafter, and he should . therefore not abandon any one claim to which by law and justice he was entitled. He should, however, take the high ground of fearless innocence; complete and perfect innocence; innocence which would sname the foul and calumnious charges which had been brought forward to crush it. The charges were false as they were foul; and he grieved to say, that those who made them, knew that they were false, foul, and scandalous. He would not qualify his terms. In rebutting the charges of criminality so shamefully made against his Illustrious Client, against the Queen of England, he would not admit that any thing had been proved, not even the imputation of improper and indecent conduct, which some whodenied actual guilt, were so eager to establish. He would, however, make one admission, if it would gratify or benefit the prosecutors. Her Majesty lived in Italy, and true it was, that when the Peeresses of the realm had ceased to visit her, she admitted to the honour of her society persons of an inferior station in life. Their Lordships were the fittest persons in the world to try her Majesty as far as this fact went; for they could be her witnesses. When she resided in this country, the Queen condescended to throw open her palace gates to admit their Lordships, and some there were who knew this truth well. When the situation of her Majesty changed, they changed too. Desire of power, and lust after place, quite altered the feelings and pursuits of the Honourable Gentlemen who had before paid homage to female royalty. Their Lordships deserted her; abandoned her; left her without the attendants upon whom her birth taught her to rely; took from her the appendages of rank and honour; exposed her to the offices of more obscure but faithful friends; and then complained that she had degraded herself by admitting them to her society. How, he would ask, was his Illustrious Client treated at the time of her beloved and lamented daughter's marriage with the Prince of Saxe Cobourg ? AU England knew of the marriage; the important event was announced ill every town of Europe, and officially declared at every eourt; not a creature, connected with the English court, to whom this event was not officially communicated, except Whom? Would it be believed in that Honourable House; would it be believed by the world ; by any man accustomed to feel and to act correctly; by any person who had not quite forgotten what was due to the ties of nature; the mother of this bride Was the only person who received no official notification of the marriage ? Yes; it must be believed, against reason and propriety; for the fact was too notorious to be disputed. The very individual, who, according to all the considerations of decency and good feeling which should influence the conduct of mankind, and particularly in those elevated ranks where so much attention is usually paid lo form and etiquette; this very individual, who, of all the living world had the greatest right to know, and the most interest in knowing, the happiness of an only and a cherished daughter, heard of her marriage by mere accident. A courier from England to that ancient ally of this Protestant nation ( the Pope) informed her Majesty, as he would have informed any comraou stranger, of the consummation of her daughter's marriage. Here, certainly, was subject of complaint of a studied insult to his Illustrious Client; but it did not stop here. The hand of death could not chasten the oppression which was exercised against her. In all the ordinary cases of human life, the animosities of one part of a family were suspended for a time over the grave of a departed relative ; but in this instance, when the hand of death laid its icy grasp upon the hopes of an adoring people, when all Europe wept over the memory of a noble- minded Princess— wh'en the tears of the British nation watered fhe grave of one whom they had almost adored while living, who was the person to whom it was thought ' unnecessary to communicate this dreadful loss and national calamity ? Her mother! She was the only person connected with the British Court who had no official communication of her daughter's being summoned before the great tribunal of tiie Almighty. But her Majesty did hear of the heart- rending circumstance; for whocould be long kept in ignorance of it ? And he would remind their Lordships, if she had never heard of it in any other way, the Milan Commission would have been quite sufficient to infonp her that she had lost the support by which she was shielded from the hand of persecution. The establishment of that commission carried with it a full conviction that some important change had taken placc. Her Majesty, however, heard of the change by accidcnt, and anticipated all that had befallen her. Mr. Brougham then adverted to the Queen's entire innocence of the former charges which had been brought against her; to the assassination of her legal adviser, Mr. Percival; an event which all good men lamented; and also to the circumstance of Mr. Whitbread becoming her Majesty's adviser. The Learned Gentleman then commented upon the ungrateful conduct of the present Ministers, who had received ho. • mours and favours from her whom they deserted and now persecuted. This, said he, was a treachery not to be expected, but it was one over which a good cause would speedily triumph. After proceeding in an animated strain in his strictures upon the conduct of his Majesty's fillisters, the Learned Counsel proceeded to make his observations upon tiie opening speech of the Attorney General. This spdtch, saiU he, was made fipm a printed instruction contrived and got nj> at Milan. It would be very easy indeed tg show his Learned Friend that the truths of bis printed paper were not infallible— What were the assertions contained in that important document? The Attorney General hai said, that upon her Majesty's arrival at Naples, she returned early in the evening from the theatre, and that Bergami must have slept that night with her Majesty; then, following up this conclusion, something was to be proved about the sheets on the following morning, and that the Queen was inaccessible at that time to any body but Bergami. Now, all these notable assertions were completely negatived by the evidence of Demont, who was brought forward to swear it. That the Attorney and Solicitor Generals had not taken the evidence at Milan, themselves, was sufficiently clear, by the manner in which they brought it forward, and surely never did men display such utter ignorance of Italian manners and language as his Learned Antagonists. The Attorney- general, he said, with much fine pathos, " Only think of a British Princess blackballed by an Italian Cassino." But, his Learned Friend, in the excess of the shock upon his sensitive faculties, had quite forgotten to inform their Lordships who were the honourable black- balle » s, who had shut out this British Princess from their Cassino. It had quite escaped his knowledge that the celebrated Colonel Browne was one of the black- ballers, and that the Cassino was held in the same town where the infamous Commission was established. The Attorney- General too, sapient man, had said, " her Majesty went to a Masquerade, and instead of going in her state carriage with her livery servants, sue went privately, and entered through a back door." How should she go to a Masquerade? How did every body go to Masquerades ?— Was it in pomp, in state, in the gaudy display of rank and power, or was it as the Queen went, privately ?— He woidd ask ihe Attorney- General to answer this question, for it was the first time in his life that he had known it necessary that every body should know who the parties were that went to masquerades, by the studied display of a public equipage The Attorney- General had said that, at one time, her Majesty was locked up with Bergami during the night; and that, when the witness, Sacchi, returned at a late hour witll despatches for the Queen, he found Bergami just coming out of her apartment— that ' Bergami appeared consi. ddeerraabbllvy aaggiittaatteedd,, aandd ssaaiidd ttoo tthee wiittneessss SSaaccechii,. "" Tnakkpe no notice of what you have seen," there cannot be the least doubt in the world, said Mr. Brougham, that Sacchi swore to his monstrous falsehood at Milan; but he begged their Lordships particularly to remember, that, although the questiqn was put to him at the Bar of that House repeatedly, instead of proving it lip completely denied it. Then come the charges at Naples, at the Baro.' ia, at Villa d'fiste, and other places, where it was said, that such was the gross and disgu* ing familiarity between her Majesty and Bergami, that she was deserted by all her respectable attendants. He should be able to account for their leaving her when they did leave ; but let it be understood, that instead of leaving her at Naples, it was there they joined her. And also after the gross transactions at Naples, viz. at Leghorn, he meant Lady Charlotte Lindsay and the other English Ladies, who joined her Majesty, and remained with her after, a considerable time after these disgusting aud filthy familiarities took place between her and Bergami. Then it was a wicked falsehood, the statement of her Majesty being so deserted. She was received by the Grand Duke of Baden, and by all the legitimate Sovereigns in the course of her journey. The fact was, tha case had been manufactured at Milan; the most complete perjuries had been arranged, and tiie whole was a gross tissue of wicked, vile, and well- paid perjury. Their Lordships must see that the whole was false from beginning to end. It could not be tru « , it was contrary to nature and common sense. The parties accused were not in the hey- day of youthful blood. They were seen walking arm in arm. That was slight evidence. But they had been seen kissing, and their Lordships would notice thaB when they were sw © m to have been so kissing, that her Majesty always contrived to have a number of persons to witness it. Instead of doing all in her power to carry on the amours in private, it appears by the evidence that she did all in her power to expose it to any one, servants ar. d others. Good God, who was to believe such vile falsehoods? They were seen sitting on a gun, on board a vessel, and the whole of the crew were witnesses of her impropriety. Would such a mad statement as that be believed ? Could any person on earth suppose that a Princess, knowing that spies were out, watching her, would take suah measures to expose to her enemies evidence of that conduct which they were so eagerly desirous to obtain ? He now called their Lordships' attention to a circumstance the most improbable and false that ever vas invented. Her Majesty was riding in mid- day in a carriage, and a discharged servant actually swears lo a fact, which was as wicked, and as completely untrue, as it was contrary to the common course of nature. The witness he alluded to swore that he . rode up to her Majesty's carriage, and saw her hands in the disgusting situation which he described, and he swore, that no part of the carriage concealed their persons, that part of their persons he so described. Could any credency be given to such a statement ? for if the accused did wish to gratify improper and criminal desires, would she take such an opportunity ? The Learned Counsel then pronounced the proceedings against the Queen, to he the result of a vile, wicked, and most diabolical conspiracy. The witnesses, themselves, were the lowest drej*; of the country from whence they were brought. He diS not mean to say that there were not honourable pentor. s in that country ; he knew there were; he knew many Italians in whom he would trust his property and his honour. But to prove that it was a foul conspiracy, he would state a few facts as to the classification of the witnesses. In the first place, they were all examined and tutored before the rcceipt of perjury, the Milan Commission, and there thev were brought to be drilled by persons especially employed by the Commission, by couriers of their own, and not by the common runners or couriers of the country. And when the witnesses were arrived in this country they were classed together. Those who came fr& m one and the same place to speak to the same facts, were put together instead of being separated. And it should not be forgot ft n that the witness, the master and mate of the vessel, who were so well paid for their swearings, although tliey w^ re examined by the Milan Comnpission, eighteen months ago, yet they were again taken there to arrange their evidence, a few days before they sailed for England, and every witness had agreed to receive a sum of money, but it was not as a reward, merely as a compensate r. The Learned Counsel then referred to the Divorce i; i Harry the Eighth's time, in which witnesses were paid to come from Italy, and by a person named Cooke, ttid in that case the witnesses were all hired to come swear. It was notorious, that in Italy witnesses could be obtained to swear to any thing. The usual chargt for [ ill oath was three ducats, but it varied according to the ability of the person who required the swearer, afcd the necessity ofthe wretch who was to perjure himself. In making these observations, he had travelled rathci from his point, He wished their Lordshipe to pay irgst • H % £/ > J 1819." THE LIVERPOOL MERCURY.

This person was described as a most brutal, wicked, and disgustingwretch, who made gross gesticulations and actions, which he should not mention, for it was too disgusting, ' and, before her Miy esty this was said to have taken place, and she had expressed her gratification at it. Now upon the evidence brought by the Attorney- General, this fact was. completely falsified. The Soliciter- Gencral asked M^ iocclii what he saw Mahomet do. All he said, " I iv.- him glance."— Did he do nothing else? " No, I sow nothing else." He ( Mr. It.) had loudly to complain of the mending and patching of the case. The first witnews proved the charge to be untrue. Another witness is called, lie " does not venture to swear that he saw Mahomet act as the Attorney- general described in his opening speech; all he saw was that Mahomet danced. Well, this evidence will " not do; and a day after another witness is called, and he swears point blank to having seen the act the Attorney- general mentioned in Ills opening speech. lie would boldly declare to their lordships, that this witness must have been instructed to . prove that which the two ' first witnesses failed in proving, after they had been examined. He could as sVrfc tpeir Lordships that the dance of Mahomet hud been witnessed frequently, and commonly by mothers of families, who were as pure in thought, and as honest ana virtuous as the wives of the Neble Lords whom he was addressing, This lie should prove. Another fact, not a slight one, which he must relate to their Lordships, was the cjrcumstanco of the first witnesses, the Master and Mate of the vessel, acknowledging having received so great a sum for their swearings. They admitted that they were to have 1SOO dollars a month. This fact got known among the other witnesses, and after that not one of them would acknowledge to, have been promised or to have received any sum of money, except a stiver or a < hic. it, for- his trouble. They. said. " I shall not have any thing but my expenses, I require nothing; I only hope to soon get home to . my master." Coidd such witnesses be believed ? , He gave credit to the British officers who gave evidence,' and theirs was the only testimony- that could be received or relied upon. If this was a cfvse at the Old Bailey, and it were to appear to the Judges that the witnesses were discliarged servants, all ot' whom had been tutored at a particular place, their evidence arranged,— thjit they had been taken into the e- nminvnee-' t and pay ot the prosecutors,— that they'were drilled and cooped together to give instruction to each other, as to the facts, they should swear to,— that one of tb - in. who was a courier in the employ of the accused, wV- employed and p'did by the accuser, at so high a rate as to iie able to k e e p a servant, dress himself in the first s'.> 1-', and live at the rate of £ too or £' 500 per annum, which, in Italy, is at the rate of £ 1,500 per annum, they * > uld drive the charge out of Court, to thedisgrace and infamy of the prosecutors. But this was not a cfnlrgii of High Treason, not a charge of murder or r.) Uh-: ry. but it was a Bill of Pains and Penalties, which lie had to argue against, ' T h e Attorney- general ib . his opening, asked, •' what was the reason of the respectable hrtglish Ladies leaving her Majesty? must they not have seen something which excited their disgust; is not tts. it to be inferred from all of them deserting her ? indeed, how could they stay, after witnessing such indecent and shocking familiarities?" Now, after making such an assertion, why did not he call some of those resectable Ladies? But it appeared that the case of her Majesty was to be proved, not by evidence, but by the thing that he had said at Milan : but he had forgot it, not because his memorv was bad, but because it had never taketi place at a l l a n d had men are very liable to forget falsehoods if their own invention— The Solicitor^ General then said " Did any thing pass the second tirfie." And this, in order to refresh his memory as to what he had before falsely stated. Majocchi was asked; if he had made any observations on the Princess when riding upon the ass, and what came out ?—" Bergami hetdlter to prevent her falling."' The Soficitor-. Gcnerd'l was however still determined lo go . on, and Majoccbi could only snyi " They talked together, and nothing else." ". This sort of want of memory of what he had falsely said'at Milan, occurred frequently. ' Majocchi- had, after much prevarication, admitted that there were two entrances to Bergami's chamber, and vet lie had stated that. the Queen passed through his ( Majocchi's) room, which Was so small that she could not stand upright in it— where he was in bed— where she must be seen— when by going through the other way. she might have escaped observation. This was evidently a gross invention; for who would believe that a pcrsop who was going to commit adultery in another room could stop and look in the face of the man who might see and betray her. Majecchi was asked if lie remembered knocking at Bergami's room, and he said Yes, and that it was on account of the arrival of the courier, hut on the cross- examination he sail? it was because thieves had broken into the house. He said he left the Princess because he did not like the bad people by whom she was surrounded, but this was proved to be ' false, because when lie was asked if he did not apply to be taken again into her service, said, " Non mi ricordo," and then admitted that he had applied to Count Sobiavini for that purpose; but said it was in joke that he did so. He was asked if he did not apply to others, his answer was, " Nnn mi ricordo," and this answer was either gross perjury, or his first statement must have been so, fir the two are quite inconsistent. He said- he would rather eat the grass than go back to that house, and yet he would not swear that he did not make several applications to be taken again into the service. Next, as to the captain and mate of the vessel, those well paid swearers : there was a pertness about the manner of the mate, which was very improper and suspicious. Yet this man had been described by the Soli-. citiir- Generol as a most excellent witness. This man is paid at the late of £ 2000 per annym, for his fourth of the loss which he . might sustain, viz. at the rate of £ 81) 00 per annum clear profits upon the vessel as lie held only one- fourth of it; asum " greater than any shipowner in Italy gains upoti all his vessels; and the captain was paid in a still greater degre, viz. at the rate of £ 2400 per . annuiji. For the hire of his vessel, and to pay the whole cre. w, he had considerably less than what he is now paid for his single swearing. But it should be remembered that this man had quarreled with Bergami about the sum that he was. to receive for the hire of his vessel. 11 was important that their l. ordsliips should notice this particularly. The mate of the . vessel says ( page 99)' v the Queen was sit ting on a gun, and they were sitting on a gun ( the Princess and IScrjjami) and supporting each other." And,, in another page; the Captain says, she was sitting on Bergami's knee, near the most, and kissing nt the time ; that his mate saw it. The mate says, lie did not see the kissing, nor was it, near the mast; and if he had seen. it, he must have remembered. Their- Lordships did not t .... know, probably,. the cause why these witnesses differed wont of. it; and tiie inference of' the Attorney- general j so widely; why they, so directly contradicted each other; must be supposed to be a fair and just one, becatisa there I the reason was this, they were both examined so close tothing else K" Thus giving him a hint to recollect some-, detejimncd to- creditaU he said, £ Ven if ' it"* crc as far . , - .,' , l 1 1 . . u.. » 1...

Was lie not correct in stating that prejudice.'; were-' rearing away against the French and- Buonaparte, when it was advanced by'tlie English Attorney- general, that a man being in a low situationin the French service under Buonaparte, entitled him to tjieir Lordships good opinion, and proved him to be. worthy of credit? • At whose expense did Sacchi live in England?. Why in- the pay of her Majesty's accusers, and in tlie style of a foreign nobleman.— According to Iris own admission, he did not always speak the truth; he admitted, as well as the lovely Miss De Mont; that he dealt in double entendrcs. — When asked as to the money he had in the bank, did not the House witness his prevarication ? But it was nothing more than' double entendre. This witness never told any one of what he had seen until he told it to the Milan Commission. This was also sworn to by all the rest of til? witnesses. Could such stntements be credited at all, or if there were any truth in the assertions of the witnesses, was it too much to say, that if the statements were mentioned first before that infamous commission, that there it was that the conspiracy was concocted, the'plans were arranged, and the plyt was put into an imposing shape ? One fact, which had come out hy chance, and which had completely rent the disguise from the conspiracy, and shown the witness in his own deformity, was so exceedingly important, that he requested their Lordships- to pay particular attention to it; for it was owing to circumstances of this kind that the most wicked and diabolical conspiracies like the present were brought to light. The witness Soccht was asked, wlicn he changed liis name? he replied, a few days before he come to England." He was asked, why he changed his name ? and he answered, " because he had been told of tumults ( tumult'*) in this country, sometime before he came to England. Their Lordships knew that the tumult he referred to was the treatment of the witnesses against the Queen. at Dover. He was asked when he came to England? He answered, in July; but it turned out not to be July last, which was the time tin- tumult actually took place, but in July, 1819, 12 months before the tumult occurred. But how did the witness, when he. found himself involved by his base perjury, act to get out ? He was asked if the tumult was in England ?— He said yes. He was asked how lie heard of it ? and he replied ( by a mete shift to get out of the web in which he had entangled himself) that he was called on by an unknown person, with Kroii-, the courier to the Milan Commission, and the unknown said to him, that it would be necessary to his personal safety that he should change his name when he came to England", for there had been tumults when other wit nesscs arrived. This answer was an invented falsehood ot the moment by the witness; it was impossible that the unknown shoiild have told'him of the. event before it happened; it could not have been stated by chance, nt least as far as numbers, will constitute representation' aid when wi cross the Alps, we observe a rfiest lament, abje deficiency. Swisserland, rural SwisserBS- jl, has. been reprraentod by a singls nymph, and Germany has been represented by the gentle" Maid of the Inn." from no other placa of all the places at which her Majesty touched in the course of her travels, has a single witness been produced. The only witness indeed this side tho Alps, has been the German chambermaid or cellarmaid, or assistant to the ccllarmaid, for there are grent doubts as to which of these descriptions can be applied to. her. To be sure I must except the Moid of Switzerland ; but these two excepted, not a single witness has been produced in support of those proceedings, hut what are Italians by birth. Oh! I beg your Lordships'pardon ; there- Anne been two other witnesses produced, but they are my witnesses; and J'have to thank my Learned friends for having called them. Adverting now more particularly to1 the evidence of these foreign witnesses, I slialf address myself first to that of this same chambermaid, or cellonnaid, Barbara Krantz. He took her as her own biographer. She first entered into place at thirteen years of age; she hod been in many p'laccs ill thecourse of the time, to which she referred ui her evidence there. On one occasion she stated she entered info the service of a Mr. Maher, but in. what capacity it was not altogether so easy to discover from Her; and this difficulty was observable in the account which she gave of all her other places. What, now, if , it should come out, that during the time she stated herself to be in those places, with one single exception, when she served Under a private master ; what, he repeated, if he should prove, that in all these cases she was in an iri'n, ami in no other place. She let them still further into the nature of her intentions than into the nature of licr places. First, they found in what manner she had been induced to come over and give evidence. And here he entreated their Lordships toobserve, that if there were n'O other witnesses brought to corroborate this woman, it was not for lack of agents; for they were to be found in that pafrt of Europe whcnceshe came, as numerous, with their usual activity and with the ordinary resources ; and recollecting " that the Milan Commission was composed of Englishmen, he was satisfied that there was more general impropriety in the conduct of the German agents than in any otheis employed in this case- He would Introduce, fearlessly, th? names of [ Continued in Supplement, page 118.] CJ- We shall probably be under. the necessity of printing a number of this day's paper, or the supplement, upon unstamped paper; for which we shall not fail to deliver, in an accurate account to the regular authorities.

In a case i gether, that it was impossible that the last witness could | for fie could no more have stated such a circumstance of this sort, was it not the Attorney- general's duty to have read the evidence of the former witncss,_ before he h ive called the witnesses to prove tlie fact which he gave his evidence to their Lordships- And is it possible wished their Lordships to infer? Or, were their Lord- the Captain's evidence call bd believed? lie says, he ships to take it as proved,' unless he ( Mr. Brougham) sent away the Mate, his relation, because it was improper called, the witnesses to prove i f was'not so? for him to see the Princess and Bergami near each other Mr. Brougham, now requested a little time to recruit ill the tent, and they were not touching each other at the his almost exhausted frame, lie had spoken about two j titne.

He called their attention to the character of Majocchi's evidence, which was extenilstoted ( and could it be belie , eil that he did ?) what he said was a voluntary falsehood. To be sure, lie might pre- : sume that by making such an addition to his evidence j he should obtain a greater turn, that he hod been led to ! understand would be increased according to the service cd all over the extent of the time in which the tharge ! performed ; for the witness said, . that, when he made a against the Queen was included. He was an important ! bargain with royalty, he expected more than the exact witness. He was well known in this country, and sum bargained for. He came now to a person of more would always' be remembered in imagination as long as importance than either the Captain or the Mate. He the words he so frequently used were in existence, ( Non mean De Mont. This female lived with her Majesty a mi ricordo.)' What the witness'Majocclii proved was considerable time, and had lived iii England about sixnot much, certainly, but what he did not prove, what teen months, before she was examined. She had stuhe could hot remember, was very important. He ( Mr. died the English language, and had obtained such Brougham) would prove that the statement of Majocchi a proficiency in it as to be able to answer the questions as to the situation of the rooms, was scandalously false. , without an interpreter; ' out the Counsel like to ex- Much had been soid of the proximity of the two rooms an- ine her with an interpreter, and for obvious reaof Uergami and the Queen's; the answer however, to sons.

His subservient answers of, " I do ! her a Countess. No writer, English o f ftrcigri, ancient not know," or " I do not remember," was a wicked t or modern, ever did justice to the character of the champerjiiry, which became the more conspicuous from the | bermaid. She is the most complete and thorough- bred general conduct of tlie witness. He was asked if he had i chambermaid that ever lived— she never tvas equalled— ever seen the V i l l a d'Este after lus return from the j nor Le Sage, nor Moliere, nor Colley Cibber, nor any long voyage, and if the position of the rooms was'the I other author, ever drew so excellent a picture. But she same os before ? He enters into a minute statement • had no idea of the letters being brought against her, or ot' their position, nothing could be more delibrately she never would have been seen here; and tiie effect of minute than his statement. Indeed, the witnesses had the letters was to drive seventy witnesses'out of the laid their conspiracy well, and had built their false-. country, lest they should be laid hold of by her M. ijeshoads upon a few facts by which they or any others, ty's advisers. Then she says the greatest part of what with fi little plain management, might swear away an Ji<: writes and says is double entendre.

Again, os to the kissing in the room at Naples, with Barganii. When Majocchi was examined here, he said it v as merely whispering, whereas, at - Milan, lie stated * h » t it kitting.— Mr. Brougham then referred to t ie exnminat » . n of the Solicitor- General, as to what occurred Her praise of the Queen was . sincere; and until she was corrupted, until she was bribed to swear the contrary, the same opinion existed. Hir evidence was so directly contrary to her conduct that'it could not be believed, not a single sentence. Their Lordships could believe it to b e nothing elsd than a heap of vile perjuri * and well- paid falsehoods. He now came to tlic witness Sacchi. Who was this witness ? What did he- soy ? And was Ms evidence to be believed u- USE; or Catania t — " Did you see any broth given I ot all ?

Such prevarications as these it was th. it fortunately led to the discovery of atrocious conspiracies.

Could their Lord- Ships for a moment believe, even supposing that the aceus- H wished to gratify such an appetite, that she would have been so mad as to have exposed herself to utter ruin arid contempt, in such oil open, gross, and scandalous a manner, which the vilest and most debouched woman on earth would scarcely have done. Would her Majesty have exposed herself to the gaze of a ser vai't. in such indecencies, in an open carriage, in the public road ? No, it was too monstrous for the most credulous and gullible creature in the world to give an iota of credence to it. This witness was asked, who was in the carriage with the Princess- ond Bergami ?— what was his reply ?— it was', " Non mi ricordo;" an answer frequently used'by another witness. But what d id that answ- ei say ?— it said that the witness had been instructed by some persons. He had been told, " You will be askotl who was with them' in the carriage, and as it Will not do to say any one else was there, for fear the person should be called upon to disprove your assertion, you'had better say therefore, " - N on mi ricordo." Was this not to be- fairly inferred ? But what w, as the real fact which lie should prove in evidence ? - Th « real fact was that on that journey a person was travelling in the carriage with her Majesty and Bergami, and the witness Sacchi wos not the courier who travelled on that occasion. SaccJii says that he never told any person of what he saw, not even the lovely Miss J) e Mont, whom he had . had three months sweet intercourse with. Was this to be believed, that a man who saw such scenes as he had described, should not communicate it to his fe- llow- scrvant, when they were on such terms as they were? It being four o'clock,. Earl Grey rose, and moved an adjournment, and the house adjourned till ten o'clock to- morrow morning (. Wednesday.) O j t s J t f o r m n t i ' s J $ T a t l. HOUSE OF L O R D S ( W E D N E S D A Y .) There was, this morning, another very full attendance of Peers. Counsel were ordered to be called in, and' Mr. Brougham then resumed as follows :— My Lords,— Notwithstanding the: great care with which this ca„ e has been got up, notwithstanding the great display of learning and talent which the conduct of this case has developed, and notwithstanding the boundless recourcts which ils conductors have had at command to bring that learning and talent into play, as the. other side possess a » ul have at command) there is a Very -. bvious and I had almost said unjust deficiency, a want of balance with respect to tlie countries from which the. witnesses have been selected.

The style is simple and familiar, the sentences short and striking, and no one can fail to be pleased with their entire exemption from all parade and affectation. The Preacher seldom appsiars in them in his own person; though, whenever they direct attention to himself, he is seen in the delightful character of a sincere and pious Christian, and a liberal, ingenious, humble, and good man."— Monthly Repository of Theology, March, 1820.

It is unnecessary to remark on the beauties of the composition: the work will speak fur itself. DaveupUrt, Hanson, and Webb, from Paintings by SIRE,— When I presume to address you on the subject which afSicts and agitates the country I do so with the most profound sentiments of respect and loyalty. But I am no flatterer. I wish well to your illustrious House, and therefore I address you in the tone of simple truth— the interests of ihe King atul Queen are identified, aud her Majesty's advocate must be yours. ' Hie degradation of any branch of your family must in some degree compromise the dignity of all, and be assured there is as much danger as discredit in familiarizing the public eye to such a spectacle. I have no doubt that the present exhibition is not your royal wish ; 1 have no doubt it is the work of wily sycophants and slanderers, who have persuaded you of what they know to be false, in the base hope that it may turn out to be profitable. With the view, then, of warning you agaiust interested hypocrisy, and of giving to your heart its naturally humane and noble inclination, I invoke your attention to the situation of your persecuted Consort.! 1 implore of you to consider whether it would not be for the safety of the State, for. the tranquillity of the Country, for the honour of your House, aud for the interests alike of royalty anil humanity, that au helpless female should be permitted to pass in peace the few remaining years which unmerited misery has spared to her. ft is now, Sire, abont five- and- twenty years since her Majesty landed on the slieres of England— a Princess by birth— a Queen by marriage— the relative of Kings— and the daughter and the sister of a hero. tion of a Royal husband, and the allegiance of a glorious and gallant people. She was no more to see her noble father's hand unhelm the warrior's brow to fondle o'er his child— no more for her a mother's tongue delighted as it taught: that ear which never heard a strain— that eye which never opened on a scene,. but those of careless, crimeless, cloudless infancy, was now about to change its dulcet tones and fairy visions for tbe accent and the country of the stranger. But she had heard the character of Britons— she knew that chivalry and courage co- existed — she knew that where tlie'brave man and the free man dwelt, the very name of woman liore a charmed sway; and where the voice of England echoed your Royal pledge, to " love, and worship, and cleave to her alone," she but looked upon your Sire's example, and your nation's annals, and was satisfied. Pause and contemplate her enviable station at the hour of these unhappy nuptials 1 The created world could scarcely exhibit a more interesting spectacle. There was no earthly bliss of which she was not either in the possession or the expectancy. Roval alike by birth arid by alliance— honoured as the choice of England's heir, reputed the most accomplished gentleman in Europe— her reputation spotless * as ( he unfallen snow— her approach heralded bv a people's prayer, and her footsteps obliterated by an'obsequious nobility— her youth, like the lovely season which it typified, one crowded garland of rich aud fragrant blossoms, refreshing every eye with present beauty, and filling every heart" with promised benefits! No wonder that slie feared no famine in that spring- tide of her happiness— no wonder that her speech was rapture, and her step was buoyancy! She was the darling of her parents' hearts— a kingdom was her dower— her very glance, like the sun of heaven, diffused light, and warmth, and luxury around it— in her public hour, fortune concentered all its rays upon her, and when she shrunk from its too radiant coon, it was within the shelter of a husband's love, which God and nature, and duty and morality, assured her uureluctant faith should ' be eternal. Such was she then, all joy and hope, and generous credulity, the credulity that springs from honour and from innocence. And who could blame it ? You had a world to chuse, and she was your selection— your ages were compatible— your births were equal— you liacl drawn her from the home where she was honourable and happy— you had a prodigal allowance showered oa you by the people— you had bowed your anointed head before the altar, and sworn by its majesty to cherish and protect her, and this you did in ihe presence of that moral nation from whom you hold the crown, and in the face of that church of which vou are the guardian. ' Hie ties which bound you were of no ordinary texture— you stood not in the situation of some secluded profligate, whose - brutal satiety might leave its victim to a death of solitude, where no eye could see, nor echo tell the quiverings of her agony. Your elevation was too luminous and too lofty to be overlooked, and she, who confided with a vestal's faith and a virgin's purity in your honour and your morals, had a corroborative pledge in that publicity, which could not leave her to sufier or be sinned against in secret. All the calculations of her reason, all the evidence of her experience, combined their confirmation. Her own parental home was purity itself, and yours might have bound Republicans to Royalty; it would have been little less than treason to have doubted you; and, oh! she was right to brush away the painted vermin that infest a Court, who would have withered tip her youthful heart with tbe wild errors of your ripe minority! Oh! she was right to trust the honour of " Fair England's " heir and weigh hut as a breatli- blown grain of dust a thousand follies and a thousand faults balanced agaiust the conscience of her husband. She did confide, and what has been the consequence ? She was then young— direct from the indulgence of a ^ . paternal court— the blessing of her aged parents, of Reinagk, Ctenncft, Rimer, and Bcrrengrr; the remaip- whom she was the hope and stay— ami happiness der cut on Wood, by Clenneil, Thompson, Austin, and , shone brightly o'er her: her life hail been all smi- Rrjuick. shins— time forher'had only trod on flowers; and if The Author's object has been, to present, in as | the visions which endear, and decorate, and hallow | conipfesscj » form as real utility would admit, Instruc- j home, were j uii » 3 in Ml tiie various Field Spsrts in Modem Practice. . them fair the History must record it, Sire, when the brightest gem in your diadem shall have mouldered, that this young, confiding, inexperienced creature had scarcely heard the last congratulatory address upon her marriage, when she was exiled from her husband's bed, banished from her husband's society and protection* and abandoned to the pollution of every slanderous sycophant who chose to crawl over the ruin! Merciful God! was it meet to leave a human being so situated, with all her passions excited and inflamed to the impulses of such abandonment? Was it meet thus to subject her inexperienced youth to the scorpion stingings of exasperated pride, and all its incidental, natural temptations? Was it right to fling the shadow of a husband's frown upon the then unsullied snow of her reputation ? Up to the blight of that all- withering' hour no human tongue dared to asperse her character. The sun of patronage was not then strong enough to quicken into life the serpent brood of slanderers: no starveling aliens, no hungry tribe of local expectants, then hoped to fatten uppn the offals of the Royal reputation. She was not long enough in widowhood to give the spy and the perjurer even a colour for their inventions. The peculiarities of the foreigner— the weaknesses of the female— the natural vivacity of youthful innocence, could not then be tortured into " demonstrations strong"; for you, yourself, in your recorded letter had left her purity not only uiiimpeached, hut un- • • suspected. That invaluable " letter, the living document of your separation, gives HS the sole reasomfqr*^" titiP^ ' your exile, that your " inclinations" were . licit in' £ v\.;.' « '' i your power!

OCT. 6, fidelity till death, and self- absolve myself whatever moment it suits my " inclination"? Not so will that mitred Bench who see her Majesty arraigned befoie them, read to you this ceremony. They will tell you it is the most solemn ordinance of man— consecrated by tiie approving presence of our Saviour— acknowledged by the whole civilized community— the so nice of life's purest pleasures, and of death's happiest consolations— the great moral chain by which society is held together— the sacred cement ot all social intercourse— the rich fountain of our life and being, whose draught not only purifies existence, but causes man to live in his p o s t e r i t y t h e y will tell you that it cannot perish by " inclination," but by crime, and that if there is any difference between the prince and the peasant who invoke its obligation, it is in the more enlarged duty entailed upon him, to whom the Almighty has vouchsafed tiie influence of an example. * • -' thus,- then, within one year after her marriage, was she flung " like a loathsome weed" upon the world, no cause assigned except your loathing inclination ! It mattered nothing, that, for you she had surrendered all her worldly " prospects— that she had ' left her home, her parents', and her country— that she had confided in the honour of a Prince, and tlie heart of a man, and the faith of a Christian; she kad, it seems, in one little year " outlived your liking," and the poor, abandoned, branded, heart- rent outcast, must bear it ail iu silence, for— she tens a defenceless woman and a stranger. Let any man of ordinary feeling think on her situation at this trying crisis, and say he does not feel his heart's blood boil within him! Poor unfortunate! who could have envied her her salaried shame and her royal humiliation? The lowliest peasant in her reversionary realm was happy in the comparison. The parents that loved her were t'ar, far away— the friends of her youth were in another land— she was alone antl among strangers, and he who should have rushed between her and the bolt of heaven, left her exposed to a rude world's caprices. And vet she lived, and lived without a murmur; her tears were silent— her sighs were lonely; and when you perhaps in the rich blaze of earth's magnificence forgot that such a wretch existed, no reproach of tier's awoke votir slumbering memory. Perhaps she cherished the visionary hope, that the babe whose " perilous infancy" she cradled, might one day he her hapless mother's advocate! How fondly " did she trace each faint resemblance 1 Each little casual maternal smile, Which played upon the features of that child, and might some distant day be her redemption! How, as it lisped the sacred name of father, did she hope its innocent infant tone might yet awake within that father's breast some fond association! Oh, sacred fancies! Oh, sweet and solemn visions of a mother— who but must lia!- lov, thee! Blest be the day- dream that beguiles her heart, and robes each cloud that hovers o'er her child in airy colours of that heart's creation! Too soon life's wintry whirlwind must come to sweep the prismed vapour into nothing. Thus, Sire, for many an; l many a heavy year did your deserted Queen beguile her solitude. Meanwhile for you a flattering world assumed its harlot smiles— til" ready lie denied your errors— the villain courtier dt .'" u each act, which in an humble man was merely duty, and mid the din of pomp, and mirth, and revelry, if remorse spoke, ' twasiuarticulate. Believe me, Sire, when all the tongues that flattered you are mute, ami all the g a u d y pageants that deceived you are not even a shadow, an awful voice will ask iu thunder, did your poor wife deserve this treatment, merely from some distaste of " inclination?" It must be answered. Did not the altar's vow demand a strict fidelity, and was it not a solemn and a sworn duty," for better and for worse," to watch and tend her — correct her waywardnes by gentle chiding, and fling the fondness of an husband's love between her errors am: the world? It must be answered, where the poorest rag upon the poorest beggar in your realm shall have the splendour of a coronation garment. Sad, alas! were these sorrows of licr solitude; but sad as they were, they were but in their infancy. The first blow passed— a second and severer followed. The darling child, over whose couch she shed her silent tear— upon, whose head she poured her daily benediction— in whose infant smile she lived, and moved, audLad her being, was torn away,. aud iu the mother's sweet endearments she could no longer lose the miseries of the wife. Her father, and her laurelled brother too, upon the field of battle, sealed a life of glory, happy iu a soldier's death, far happier that this dreadful'day was spared them! Her sole surviving parent followed soon, and though they left her almost alone on earth, yet how could she regret them? she has at least the bitter consolation, that their poor child's miseries did not break their hearts. Oh, miserable woman! made to rejoice over tiie very grave of her kindred, in mournful gratitude that their hearts are marble. During a long probation of exile and of woe, bereft of parents, country, child, and husband, she had one solace still— her character was unblemished. By a refinement upon crueltv, even that consolation was denied her. Twice had she to undergo the inquisition of a secret trial, originating iirfonl conspiracy, and ending in complete acquittal. The charity of her nature was made the source of crime— the peculiarities inseparable from her birth were made the ground of accusation— her very servants were questioned whether every thought, and word, and look, and gesture, and visit, were not all so many overt acts of adultery; and when her most sacred moments had been heartlesslv explored, the tardy verdict which freed her from the guilt, could iiot absolve her from the humiliating consciousness of the accusation. Your g r a c i o u s father, indeed, with a benevolence of heart more Royal than his Royalty, interposed his arm between innocence and punishment; for punishment it was, most deep and grievous, to meet discountenance from all your family, and see the fame which had defied all proof, made the capric i o u s sport of hint and insinuation. While that father, lived, she still had some protection ; even in liis night of life there was a sanctity about him which awed the daring of the highway slanderer— his honest, lipen, genuine English look, would have silenced a whole banditti of Italians. Your father acted on the principles lie professed— he was not more reverenced » >- a King than he was beloved and respected as a man; and no doubt he felt how, poignant it must have been to be denounced as a criminal, without crime, and treated as a widow in her husband's lifetime. Hut death was busy with her best protectors, and the venerable form islifeless now, Which would h ive shielded a daughter and a Brunswick, He would have, warned the Milan panders to beware the honow of his ancient House; he would have told them, that a prying, pettifogging, purchased inquisition « ';> on the unconscious privacy of a Royal female, was n't in the spirit of the English character; he would have disdained the petty larceny of Ttny diplomatic pickpocket; and he would have told the whole rabble of Italian informer's and swindling ambassathat his daughter's existence should not become a perpetual . proscription ; that she was, doubly allied to him by birth and marriage; aud that those who exacted all a wife's obedience, should have previously procured for her an husband's countenance. God reward him! There is not a father or an husband in the land, whose heart does not at this moment make a pilgrimage to his monument. Thus having escaped from two conspiracies equally affecting her honour and her life, finding all conciliation hopeless, bereft by death of every natural protector, and fearing perhaps that practice might make perjury consistent, she reluctantly determined upon leaving England. One pang alone embittered her departure — her darling, aud, in despite of all discountenance, her duteous child clung round her heart with natural tenacity. Parents who love, and feel that very love compelling separation, alone can feel for her. Yet how could she subject that devoted child to the humiliation of her mother's misery! How reduce her to the sad alternative of selecting between separated parents! She chose the generous, the noble sacrifice — self- banished, the world was before her— oue grateful sigh for England—- tine tear— the last, last tear upon'her daughter's head— and she departed. Oh Sire, imagine her at that departure! How changed! how fallen, since a few short years before, she touched the shores of England ! The day- beam fell not on an happier creature— creation caught new colours from her presence— joy sounded its timbrel as she passed, and the flowers of birth, of beauty, and of chivalry, bowed down before her. But now, alone, an orphan and a widow! her gallant brother in his shroud of glory; no arm to shield, 110 tongue to advocate, 110 friend to follow an o'erclotided fortune— branded, degraded, desolate, she flung herself once more upon the wave, to her less fickle than a husband's promises! I do not wonder that she lias now to pass through a severer ordeal, because impunity gives persecution confidence.— But I marvel indeed much, that then, after the agony of an exparte trial, and the triumph of a complete though lingering exculpation, the natural spirit of English justice did not stand embodied between her and the shore, and bear her indignant to your capital. The people, the peerage, the prelacy, should have sprung into unanimous procession; all that was noble, or powerful, or consecrated in the land, should have borne her to the palace gate, and demanded why their Queen presented to their eye this gross anomaly! Why her anointed brow should bow down in the dust, when li British verdict had pronounced her innocence! Whyshe was refused that conjugal restitution, which her humblest subject had a right to claim! Why the annals of their time should be disgraced, and the morals of their nation endure the taint of this terrir. c precedent; and why it was that after their countless sacrifices for your royal house; they should be cursed with this pageantry of royal humiliation ! Had they so acted, the dire affliction of this day might have been spared us. We should not have seen the filthy sewers of Italy disgorge a living leprosy upon our throne; aud slaves and spies, imported from a creedless brothel, land to attaint the sacred Majestv of England! But who, alas! will succour the unfortunate? The cloud of your displeasure was upon her, and the gay, glittering, countless insect- Swarm of summer friends, abide but in the sun- beam ! She passed away— with sympathy I doubt not, but iti silence. Who could have thought, that in a foreign land, the restless fiend of persecution would have haunted her? Who could have thought, that in those distant climes, where her distracted brain had sought oblivion, the demoniac malice of her enemies would have followed? Who could have thought, that any human form which hid an heart, would have sculked after the mourner in her wanderings, to note and con every unconscious gesture? Who could have thought, that such a man there was, who had drank at tlie pure fountain of bur British law! who had seen eternal justice in her sanctuary! who had invoked the shades of Holt and Hardwicke, and held high converse with those mighty spirits, whom mercy hailed in heaven as her representatives on earth ! Yet such iv man there was, who, on the classic shores of Coino, even in the land of the immortal Roman, where every stone entombed an hero, and every scene was redolent of genius, forgot his name, his country, and his calling, to hoard each coiuable and rabble slander! Oh sacred shades of our departed sages! avert your eyes from this unhallowed spectacle — the spotless ermine is unsullied still— theaikyet stands untainted in the temple, and should unconsecrated hands assail it, there is a lightning still, which would not slumber ! No, no— the judgment seat of British law is to be soared, not crawled to— it must be sought upon an eagle's pinion, and gazed at by an eagle's eye; there is a radiant purity around it, to blast the glance of grovelling speculation. His labour was in vain, Sire. The people of England will not listen to Italian witnesses, nor ought they. Our Queen has been before this, twice assailed, and assailed on. the same charges. Adultery, nay, pregnancy, was positively sworn to— One ofthe ornaments of our navy, Captain Manby, and one of the most glorious heroes who ever gave a nation immortality — a spirit of Marathon or old Thermopylae— he, who planted England's red cross on the walls of Acre, and shewed Napoleon it was invincible, were the branded traitors to their Sovereign's bed! Englishmen, and, greater scandal, English women, persons of rank, and birth, and education, were found to depose to this infernal charge! The Royal mandate issued for enquiry; Lord Erskine, LordEllenborough, a man who had dandled accusations from his cradle, sat on tlie commission; and what was the result ? They found a verdict of perjury against her base accusers! The very, child for whose parentage she might have shed her sacred blood, was proved beyond all possible denial, to have been but the adoption of her charity. " We are happy to declare to your Majesty our perfect conviction,' that there is no foundation whatever for believing, ( I quote the Very words of the Commissioners,) that the child now with the Princess is the child of her Royal Highness, or that she was delivered of any child in the year 1802; nor has any tiling appeared to us, which would warrant the belief that sl'ie was pregnant in that year, or at any other period within the compass of our inquiries." Yet people of rank and station, moving in the highest society in England, adjnitted even to the Sovereign's court, actually volunteered their sworn attestation of this falsehood ! 1 Twenty years have rolled over hor since, and vet the same foul charge of adultery, sustained not as before by the plausible fabrications of Englishmen, Witt bolstered by the habitual invention of Italians, is sought to be affixed to the evening of her life in the face of a generous and loyal people! " A kind of sacramental shipload— a packed and assorted cargo of human affidavits has been consigned; it seems, from Italy to Westminster ; thirtythree thousand pounds of the people's money paid the pedlar who selected the articles; and. with this infected freight, which should have performed quarantine before it vOmitedits moral pestilence amongst us, the Queen of England is sought to be attainted! It cannot be, Sire: we have given much, very much indeed, to foreigners, but we will not concede to tliem the hard- earned principles of British justice. It is not to be endured, that two acquittals should be followed by a third experiment; that when the English Testament has tailed, an Italian missal's kiss shall be resorted to; that when people of character here have been discredited, others should be recruited who have no character anywhere : but'above all it is intolerable, that a defenceless woman should pass her life in endless persecution, with one trial in swift succession following another, in the hope, perhaps, that the noble heart which has defied all proof, should perish in the torture of eternal accusation.— Send back, then, to Italy, those alien adventurers; the land of their birth, and the habits of their lives, alike unfit them for an English court of justice.— There is no spark of freedom— no grace of religion— no sense of morals in their degenerate soil. Effeminate in manners— sensual from their cradles— crafty, venal, and officious— naturalized to crime— outcasts of credulity— they have seen from their infancy their court a bagnio—- their very churches scenes of daily assignation!— their faith is form— their marriage ceremony a mere mask for the most incestuous intercourse— gold is the God before which they prostrate every impulse of their nature. " O sacra a'uri fames! quid non mortalia pectora cogis!" the once indignant exclamation of their antiquity, has become the maxim of their modern practice. No nice extreme a true Italian knows; But, bid him go to Hell— to Hell he goes. Away with them any where from us— they cannot live in England— they will die iu the purity of its moral atmosphere. Meanwhile, during this accursed scrutiny, even while the legal blood- hounds were on the scent, the last dear stay which bound her to the world parted, the Princess'Charlotte died I I will not harrow up a father's feelings, by dwelling on this dreadful recollection. The poet says, that even grief finds comfort in society, and England wept with you. But, oh Gotl! what must have been that hapless mother's misery, when first the dismal tidings came upon her! The darling child, over whose cradle she had shed so many tears— whose lightest look was treasured in her memory— who mid the world's frown, still smiled upon her— the fair and lovely flower, which when her orb was quenched in tears, lost not its filial, its divine fidelity ! it was blighted in its blossom— its verdant stem was withered! and in a foreign land she heard it, and alone— no, no, not quite alone.— The Myrmidons of British hate weie round her, and when her heart's salt tears were blinding her, a GERMAN NOBLEMAN was plundering her letters. Bethink you, Sire, if that fair paragon of daughters lived, would England's heart be wrung with this enquiry ? Oh! she would have torn the diamonds from her brow, aud dashed each royal mockery to the earth, and rushed before the people, not in a Monarch's but in nature's majesty— a child appealing for her persecuted mother! aiid God would bless the sight, and man would hallow it, aud every little infant in the land who felt a mother's warm tear upon her cheek, wonld turn by instinct to that sacred summons. Your daughter, in her shroud, is yet alive, Sire— her spirit is amongst us— it rose untombed where her poor mother landed— it walks amid the people— it has left the angels, to protect a parent. Theiheine is sacred, and I will not sully it; I will not recapitulate the griefs, and, worse than griefs, the little, pitiful, deliberate insults which are burning on every tongue in England. Every hope blighted — every friend discountenanced— her kindred in their grave— her declared innocence made but the herald to more cruel accusation— her two trials followed by a third, a third on the same charges— her Royal character insinuated away by Germanpicklocks& nA Italian conspirators— her divorce sought by an extraordinary procedure, upon grounds untenable before any usual lay or ecclesiastical tribunal— her name meanly erased from the Liturgy— her natural rights as a mother disregarded, and her civil rights as a Queen sought to be exterminated! and all this— all, because she dared to touch the sacred soil of liberty! because she did not banish herself, an implied adulteress! because she would not be bribed into an abandonment of herself and of the generous country over which she has been called to reign, and to which her heart is bound by the most tender ties, and the most indelible obligations. Yes, she might have lived wherever she selected, in all the magnificence which boundless bribery could procure Sir her, offered her by those who affect such tenderness for your Royal character, and and such devotion to the honour of your Royal bed. If they thought her guilty, as they allege, this daring offer Was a double treason— treason' to your Majesty, whose honour they compromised— treason to the people, whose money they thus prostituted. But she spurned the- infamous temptation, and she was right. She was right to front her insatiable accusers: even were she guilty, never was there victim with such crying palliations; but all innocent, . as in my conscience I believe her to he, not perhaps of the levities contingent on her birth, and which shall not be converted into constructive crime, but of the cruel charge of adultery, now for a third time reproduced against her. She was right, bereft of the court, which was her natural residence, and all- buoyant with innocence as she felt, bravely to fling herself upon the wave of the people— that people will protect her— Britain's red cross is her flae, and Brunswick's spirit is her pilot. May the Almighty. send the Royal vessel triumphant into harbour! Sire, I am almost done; 1 have touched but slightly on your Queen's misfortunes— I have contracted the volume of her miseries to a page, and if upon that page one word offend you, impute it to my zeal, not my intention. Accustomed all my life to speak the simple truth, I offer it with fearless honesty to my Sovereign. You are iu a difficult— it may be in a most perilous emergency. Banish from yonr court the sycophants who abuse you; surround your palace with approvihg multitudes, not with armed mercenaries. Other crowns may be bestowed by desoots and entrenched by cannon; but The throne we honour is the people's choice,. Its safest bulwark is. the popular heart, and its brightest ornament, domestic virtue, porget not also, there is a throne which is above even the throne of England— where flatterers cannot come— where kings are sceptreless. The vows you made are written in language brighter than the sun, and iu the course of nature, you must soon confront them ; prepare the way by effacing now, each seeming, slight, aud fancied injury; and when you answer the last awful trumpet, be your answer t h i s :—" GOD, 1 FORGAVE, — I HOPE TO BE FORGIVEN." j Hut, if, against all . policy, and all humanity, and ! all religion, you should hearken to the counsels which further countenance this unmanly persecution, t'ien must t appeal not to you, but' to your parliament. I appeal to the sacred prelacy of England, wfiether the holy vows which their high church administered, liave been kept towards this illustrious lady— whether the hand of man should have erased her from that page with which it is worse than blasphemy in may to Interfere— whether, as heaven's vicegerents, then will not abjure the sordid passions of the earth, imitate the inspired humanity of their Saviour, find, like Him, protect a persecuted creature from the insatiate fangs of ruthless, bloody, and untiring accusation ! I appeal to thel hereditary peerage of the realm whether they will aid this levelling denunciation of their Queen— whether they will exhibit the unseemly spectacle of illustrious rank and Royal lineage degraded for the crime of claiming its inheritance— whether they will hold a sort of civil crimination, where the accused is entitled to the mercy of an impeachment ; or wliether they will say with their immortal ancestors,—" We will not tamper with the laws of England?" I appeal to the ermined, independent Judges, whether life is to be made a perpetual indictment— whether two acquittals should not discountenance a third experiment— whether, if any subject- suitor came to their tribunal thus circumstanced, claiming either divorce or compensation, they could grant his suit; and I invoke from them, by the eternal majesty of British justice, the same measure for the peasant and the prince! I appeal to the Commons in parliament assembled, representing the fathers and the husbands of the nation— I beseech them bv the outraged morals of the land !— by the overshadowed dignity of the throne! by the holiest and tenderest form's of religion!— by the honour of the army, the sanctity of tlie church, the safety of the state, and the character of the country!— hy the solemn virtues which consecrate their hearths!— by those fond endearments of nature and of habit which attach them to their cherished wives and families, I implore their tears, their protection, and their pity upon the married widow and the childless mother! To those high powers and authorities I appeal with the firmest confidence in their honour, their humanity, their integrity, and their wisdom. May their conduct justify my faith, and raise no blush ou the cheek of our posterity! I have the honour to subscribe myself, Sire, Your Majesty's most faithful subiect, CHARLES PHILLIPS. [ From the Preston Chronicle.] PETITION IN FAVOUR OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY. The following petition was presented to Parliament this session. . The humble Petition of the undersigned Protestant Dissenters of the Independent Denomination, residing in the town and neighbourhood of the borough of Cockermouth, Sheweth,— That, with confidence, relying on the justice and liberality of the British senate, your petitioners beg leave humbly to lay before your Honourable House the unmerited stigma which has long been impressed on a body of subjects whose loyalty and fidelity have yet been constantly demonstrated. That in the imposition of civil disabilities upon account of religious opinions, your petitioners deprecate an infringement of the primary law of mental freedom; the right of each to worship God according to the unbiassed dictates of his conscience. That, considered apart from the great law of native freedom, the present restriction of the Catholic Christians is evidently injurious to the best interests of the country, by the partial exclusion of men of . integrity from o fices of state, and by causing dissensions and invidious distinctions between the several denominations of religious creeds in the British empire, at a time when the prevalence and triumph of Deism and infidelity demand the united energies of all persuasions in the defence of truth. Nor can the limitation of religious liberty be defended on the ground of policy, since loyalty and attachment to the constitution of the land were declared, on inquiry, by the Catholic Universities of Louvain, Douay, Alcala, Salamanca, Valadolid, aud the Sorbonne, to be incumbent on those who profess the communion of Rome; and the antiquated absurdity of their keeping no faith with heretics, has been positively and indignantly disavowed by the college of cardinals " De Propaganda," under the immediate sanction of Pope Pius VI. as well as by Catholics of the United Kingdom. That your petitioners should consider themselves unworthy the names of Protestants and Dissenters, could, they for one moment deny to Anglicians and Romanists that sacred liberty which they hold to be the birth- right of man, and for which our fathers suffered by the prison, the axe, and the faggot! That your petitioners, therefore, beg leave humbly to entreat your Honourable House to take into consideration tho claims of our Catholic brethren for universal emancipation, and to extend to them those rights and immunities to which they are justly entitled, as a loyal and pious portion of the British empire; and thereby to conciliate the affections of a large proportion of his Majesty's subjects, in these portentous times of political ferment. That while your petitioners pray your Honourable Hon*, to grant that liberty to the Church of Rome which is the right of Englishmen, the distinction which severs the Protestant dissenters from the great body of the people cann/ it but excite them to entreat of your candour and bounty the extension of civil immunities and political honours to all the subjects of the crown of Great Britain, without respect to their religious opinions; since a loyal and constitutional disposition has ever been characteristic of those men, to whom the historian attributes the preservation of that iberty, which should ever be dear to the freemen of Britain!

OCT. 6, P R O C E S S I O N O F T H E W A T E R M E N . The procession of the Watermen on the river Thames presented on Tuesday, at an early hour, a scene of extraordinary animation, bustle and activity. Boats were observed in motion in every direction; the gay habiliments of the Watermen occasionally appearing; - the crowds collected along the banks and assembled on the several bridges— all indicated that something of unusual interest was in contemplation. Soon after eight o'clock great numbers of boats from below London- bridge, some even from Greenwich and Gravesend, had collected at the Southwark- bridge, where they were joined by boats from the upper part of the river; but to avoid the inconvenience ana danger of crowding too many boats in the confined space between Southwark- bridge and London- bridge, it had been previously arranged that the boats be'ongingto the upper part of the river should await the procession at their several stations, and fall into their proper places in the lines as the procession passed. The order of the procession having being been previously arranged, very little difficulty was found in assigning to the several boats their places; those from below London- bridge were to proceed in the centre of the river, while the boats of the Middlesex and Surrey sides were to skirt their respective shores. In this order they were to convey to Brandenburgh- house the aadress from the Watermen and Lightermen of the Thames, expressive of their affection for the Queen, and their sympathy in the sufferings her Majesty has undergone. The gentlemen forming the deputation of the Watermen, were conveyed in a very handsome barge, rowed by sixteen men dressed in white silk jackets and blue trowsers. They were preceded by a band of music, while three large steam vessels, crowded with people, and ornamented with flags of various colours and devices, skirted the Surrey shores of the river, and occasionally fired salutes from some small swivels provided for this purpose. About ten o'clock the procession began to move from Southwark- bridge. At this moment it would be impossible to convey an adequate idea of the splendour and animation of the scene. The river was literally covered with boats, all bearing flags of various colours and descriptions. There could not be fewer than from rive 11 six thousand boats present, the men in each were, for the most part, clothed uniformly in blue or white jackets, with blue sashtw and white favours, and cach boat bore a flag, either white, blue, or striped, with some device or motto. Bands of music were heard on various parts of the river, and from many placts along the shores; and the guns, as they fired from the steam boats, were answered by salutes from the land. It is impossible to do justice to the brilliancy and magnificence of the spectacle. The morning was remarkably fine, and the sparkling of the water, as it was disturbed by the thousands of oars, increased the splendour of the scene. The procession advanced rapidly up the river, being impelled both by the wind and tide, and was increased as it proceeded, being joined by the boats of the several stations along the river. The order of the procession, however, was not long observed, and before the boats passed Westminster- bridge they pursued their way without any regard to previous arrangements. They soon formed a close mass, which detracted nothing from the magnificence of the spectacle, although it could not fail of exciting in the minds of the spectators on shore an idea of immediate danger. The crowds that lined the banks of the river, and were eollec^ d on the several bridges, defied calculation ; but we do not think that we much overrate them by representing them at 200,000 persons. The persons who either formed a part of the procession, or mingled with it from curiosity, could not be fewer in number than SO. OOO. at once, the profit or loss arising to the institution from the patients. The next statement shows the money due to the Asylum, on June 24th, 1820. Thus:— Amount of sums of money due to the asylum on account of patients..£ 2438 2s. 4d.

G E N T L E M E N , The report of the County Lunatic Asylum, for the year ending June 24th, has lately made its appearance, and has been " examined and allowed" by four of the visiting magistrates. This account is made out by Mr. Knight, the governor, who is, also, the treasurer; but, from the want of a proper plan on which to arrange the difterent items; or, from the want of a little knowledge of book- keeping, some part of this account is to me, and 2 believe, to some other persons, quite unintelligible. • In making a few remarks on the irregular manner in which these accounts are made up, I wish, in the first place, to be distinctly understood as not imputing to Mr. Knight any improper motive whatever. And I would further observe, that I believe there is not an institution of the kind in the kingdom under better regulations than tHat oVer which he is placed. Mr. Knight is re. lnarkably steady, and attentive to the patients. He studies his profession, and he is a man of exemplary humanity. I would also remark that I believe his accounts aire honest; but they are not intelligible, and without some better plan to arrange them on, they will, in a few years, or I shall be much mistaken, involve the finances of the institution, in inexplicable difficulties. The former year's account purports to be from September lst, 1818, to August31st, 1819, and the account of the last year, from June 25th, 1819, to June 24th, 1820, so that there are two months and six days of the former year's account included in the last year's account The first statement of both the last year and that of the former year, is of cash paid and received, on account of patients, and though the established method requires that cash received should be placed on the left hand, under the head of Dr. and cash paid, on the right, under the head of Cr. because we must receive before we can pay, Mr. K. begins on the Dr. side by disbursements. However, this irregularity would not be of much moment, were the other part of the accounts but intelligible. The first thing we look for in this statement, and indeed what it might appear as intended to show, being one great object of the publication, is the profit or . loss arising from the expenses of the patients, when compared with the money received on their account, or whether the expense of keeping them is covered by the money received for them. But of this we can form no correct judgment. This statement does not furnish us with the'rneans of knowing whether the institution gains or loses by the patients. Mr. K. enters on the left ( see the last year's report) the expenses of provisions, servants' wages, which with what he calls the " balance . from last year," £ 875— makes £ 3,623 16s. 6d. On the other side he enters the sums of cash received in each month, on account of. patients, which, with what is called " balance due to the treasurer," £ 603 5s. 6d. makes £ 3,623 16s. Od. equal to the other side. But this statement gives lis no correct view of the profit or loss arising from the patients, an d it hardly answers any other purpose. It Only specifies the provisions paid for, and the sums received on account of the patients. Now had Mr. K. entered on one side the money received for The money stated to be due to the asylum, on account le. numerous attendance of the fatr sex of patients, in the former year's account, is £ 840, from J ™ " ! ' I f ' o b s e " ^ ' w , t h a s ™ l e » ? me" whfch it appears that the money due in arrears, on vhat^ ardonic, that he saw gr^ t advantage arising from account of patients, has increased, in the last twelve that circumstance, as, for the future, the scences would months, £ 1598 2 4. As we are not informed, whether n0 l o n8 « n m e smdthe money owing by the asylum, is on account of the — patients, or the building concern, we cannot make any 1962 British subjects emigrated to British America in use of it. 1819, to ' "" * The next article, entitled " Sources of Income, June nada. 24th, 1820, states the number of patients in the house at 148, which produce altogether, reckoning their board for the whole year, according to the terms on which they are admitted, £ 3,764 16s. This account is interesting, by showing us the state of the institution, and were this number of patients to remain the whole year, we should know exactly, what they produced. But as the average number is stated at 151, there must necessarily have been some fluctuation. In order to have ascertained exactly, the produce of the patients for the last year, a calculation should have been made according to the lime that each patient remained in the house. In the cash account for the last year, the sum of £ 375 is added to the expenses of provisions, & c. under the name of " balancc from last year." But no such sum appears in the account of that year, either in the form of balance or any other form, and where this sum comes from I cannot discover. The pursuits of Mr. Knight have been so difterent from the business of an accountant, that not to know a little of book- keeping does not at all detract from his merit as the governor of the asylum ; but wfien this institution was opened, it might have been expedient to have employed some judicious accountant to form a plan on which the accounts should be kept, and unless some improvement be yet made in this departnient, I will venture to prcdict that, in a few years, neither t hefour visiting justices, nor the governor himself, will be able to explain them.

SIR,— Knowing that the columns of your valuable paper are generally open to any communications, that have the good of the public for their object, I take up my pen to make a few remarks on a circumstance that occurs as often as we have any heavy showers of rain; I aUude to the excessive floods of water that so frequently deluge the bottom of Lord- street, and often nearly rhe whole of Whitechapel. To the bustling crowd passing to and fro on these thoroughfares, this mt. y be only an inconvenience, or perhaps at most a nuisance ; but,, Sir, to the poor inhabitants who tenant the cellars of Whitechapel, it is a deplorable evil, and really enough to counterbalance the little comforts of their humble retirement. How often arethey suddenly overwhelmed by the rushing torrent, affrighted from that repose, which sweetens the labour of the day, driven out of their apartment by this unexpected calamity. and forced into the inclemency of the elements, and that, too, often in. a state, of nudity, with their little all floating before them. These are serious evils to contemplate, particularly when the health of these poor helpless creatures is often for ever impaired. I certainly humbly think that all this trouble, confusion, and misery might be remedied with much facility. The common feelings of humanity point out to us that something mijht be done before the rigour of the approaching winter sets in, to prevent so much . distress, and in mercy to them I only appeal to the proper authorities to investigate the state of these streets, and if practicable to prevent, in future, the delay and disappointment foot passengers meet with, as well as placing the poor community alluded to, in better security of their lives and their properties. Yours, & c. AN INHABITANT, Liverpool, September, 28,1820. To the EDITORS of the Liverpool MERCURY. G E N T L E M E N , As you have been so kind as to give my letter, signed A Sufferer, a favourable reception, I beg leave to trouble you again on the subject of Pawnbrokers, and to point out to you such parts of the Act of Parliament as most particularly protect the pledger. In the first place, a pawnbroker is not justified in charging interest for the first seven days in the second month tor an article pledged ; and should the article remain fourteen days, the law only allows him interest for half the month. The Act goes so far as to say, that farthings cafinot be refused; this part of the Act, I am aware, and can almost assert it as a fact, that net one pawnbroker in Liverpool complies with ; they invariably charge a full month's interest, if the pledge has exceeded tile first month only one day. In the second place, the law allows four- pence per month for one pound lent; but should the sum lent be two pounds or upwards, only three- pence per month is legal. This part of the Act, I am also convinced, is by very few put in force; they charge the same interest as if the sum advanced had been only one pound, viz. four- pence per month ; and, in the last place, if the money lent on any pledge be ten shillings or upwards, the party pledging, by giving notice at any time to the pawnbroker previous to the expiration of twelve months, can prevent the pledge being disposed of until the expiration of three months more, In addition to the twelve months. And all pledges sold after being forfeited, which have been rawned for ten shilling or upwards, a fair account is to > e exhibited what amount tney have sold for, and the overplus ( after deducting the amount lent with interest, and expenses of sale) is to be paid to the party so pledging the article, which became forfeited for want of the means of releasing it or paying the interest thereon. I have every reason to believe, that many valuable articles have been sacrificed for want of this information, and which I think can be proved by looking at the pawnbrokers windows ; ana as I know, from a personal acquaintance, that you are an enemy to imposition in any shape, I trust you will obtain Burn's Justice, and extract the clauses which this letter refers to, which I think are the points most particularly applicable to the unfortunate individuals who are laid under, the proboscis of such leeches as pawnbrokers— There are other " instances to , which I could call your attention, but the Act has profile patients zcithm the year, and also the arrears due , J vided no remedy; and which shows their grasping dispot'wMii . l,. m-. - I" in., .1. n , a ,!.,.. tlilc ci. lu li f i .... . ! . .. _ ... i .. < » ... 1..... 1 . .... . .

OCT. 6, A FAITHFUL REPRESENTATION OF THE INTERIOR OF THE HOUSE OF LORDS, A S P R E P A R E D FOR THE TRIAL OF HER MOST GRACIOUS MAJESTY QUEEN CAROLINE. ( The Figures refer to the Table of Explanation Mow.) mmmmm { Eafcle cf Explanation. [ PMcly granted for the use of the Mercury, by Mr. Clements, of the London Observer Paper, in which it originally appeared .1 The THRONE, which was erected at thecommenocment of the reign of the present King, lt far surpasses, in point of splendour, that of his late Majesty. The pillars which support the canopy are fluted, and richly gilt. The crown and cornices of tne canopy are likewise brilliant, with burnished gold. The hangings are of crimson velvet, looped up with golden ropes, and trimmed with costly gold lace. In the back are the royal arms, embroidered on crimson velvet, and above them the letters G. IIII. The chair on which the King sits, when he meets his Parliament, is correspondent in richness with the general decorations of the Throne. It is elevated upon a platform, approached by four low steps, which are covered with Turkey carpeting. The chair, except when the King is present, or when the Royal assent is given by commission to Bills passed by the Houses of Lords and Commons, is invariably covered with a scarlet cloth Case, which preserves it from dust or other injury. As a further means of preservation, a brass trellice stretches in front of it, from pillar to pillar, which, upon the occasions to which we have alluded, is removed. Beyond ihe platform, and extending from thfc extremity of the steps on each side, is a brass railing, which separates this space from the rest of the house. It is within this railing, amd immediately in front of the throne, that the Members the of House of Commons have the privilege of standing during the proceedings of the Peers. During the trial of the Queen this privilege was exercised to a great extent, and the space was every day crowded with members. Among whom were those distinguished for taking a prominent piirt in- all great public questions. Formerly there were three chairs on the left and one on the right of the throne, designed for the use of tlie King's eldest sons, but these were removed with the old throne itselK V.— The temporary Galleries, erected by tlie direction ofthe House, to afford accommodation to the additional number ef Peers who were summoned to attend. These galleries, which obscure the greater part of the ancient tapestry by which the walls of the house are covered, extend nearly the whole length of that part of the house which, on ordinary occasions, is reserved for the reception of the Pceis; namely, from the foot of the throne to the bar: they are composed of a strong frame- work of timber, supported by iron pillars. The pillars which stand in pairs are gilt from their summits to their bases, as are the iron railings in front of the galleries. To these galleries there are stairs for ascent at each end ; they contain three seats, gradually rising one abeve the other towards the wall. These seats, as well as r. ll the ethet teats in the house, not otherwise specified, are covered with superfine scarlet cloth. As a protection to the tapestry, a screen, also covered with scarlet cloth, is erected at the back. This is about eight feet in height, and may be distincdy seen in our plan. 3— The Chair, in which her Majesty sat on the first day of her appearance in the House of Lords. It was placed on the floor to the right of the throne, but within the brass railing which we have described. There was a second chair dose at hand, for the reception of Lady Hamilton, who was constantly attendant upon her royal mistress. These chairs were of modem fashion, with scarlet seats and backs; the frame- work was gilt. There was also a footstool, covered with scarlet cloth. Her Majesty took her seat with great dignity, and the Peers all stood up on her entrance. She was attended into the house by Sir Thomas Tyrwhitt, Usher of the Black I" • Rod, who carried his staff of office in his hand, and led • her Majesty to her seat in the most respectful manner. I • Alderman Wood followed her Majesty : he was dressed j i in a full suit of court mourning, and stood in front of • ' the throne with his brother members of parliament; he R* afterwards accotn| ranied her Majesty from the house to f her carriage, as did Sir Thomas Tyrwhitt. ^ 4— Tiie Lord Chancellor, who, during the proceed- t), ings, sat at the table of the house, upon a stool covered with crimson velvet, instead of his usual seat, the woolsack. This he did for the convenience of taking his own notes, and writing such resolutions as it became his ^ duty to submit to the house. 5— The Woolsack, and two other seats of the like de- 1 (]„ seription, which are somewhat similar in shape to wool- | la sacks. They are stuffed with wool, and tied in nobs at jf( each corner. Their covering is scarlet cloth ; and dur- [ t ng the trial tiiey afforded accommodation to the! wj, judges. The Chief Justice of the King's Bench sat on t) lc the right of the Lord Chancellor, and the Chief Justice s; oi of the Common Pleas on his left. The remaining seven i10, Judges sat behind. we 6— The Table Of the House, at which the Lord the Chancellor sat, covered with leather. the 7 Clerks of the House, who wear a costume similar *' t to a barrister: Wm. Stewart Rose, Esq. and Benj t" e Currey, U6q. 1 8.— A. Box, containing the papers to which reference Kn was made during the trial, and other documents of a ; 1 public nature. Kn 9 Benches, for the reception of the Peers. There 1 iar-- three rows on each side of the house, and four rows 1 running sfcross, in front of the table. They are con- 1 strutted with convenient backs, are stuffed with horse 1 hair, and covered with scarlet cloth. The covering of the backs is gathered in fluted folds. 10 Entrance to the Stairs, leading to the galleries. 11.— The Bar. This extends from one side of the house to the other; it opens in two places by means of a falling ledge, to permit the passing and re- passing of the Peers; none other being allowed within it excepting only the officers of the house, It is at this bar that the counsel engaged in the judicial proceedings of the house always attend. Here too the Speaker and members of the House of Commons appear when summoned to the presence of the King, either at the opening or close of a Session of Parliament. It is at this bar like- : wise that the Messengers from the House ef Commons deliver to the Lord'Chancellor such bills as are sent; from that house to obtain the concurrence of the Peers, j or require information, or demand conferences. Mem- ! bers coming on these public occasions enter by a pair of folding doors, which our plan docs not embrace, but which is in a direct line fronting the throne. Their ap- j proach is invariably announced by the Yeoman llsher of the Black Rod, Robert Quarme, Esq. who is attended j by some of the principal door- keepers. Below this bar j also it is that strangers are permitted to stand during i the proceedings of the house. 12 The space allotted without the bar to the Council , and Agents of tlie Bill of Pains and Penalties, and the Council and Agents of the Queen. This is enclosed by ' a strong wooden railing, covered with scarlet clotii. It is entered by a small hatoh next the side door, and by three larger hatches next the folding- doors, which we j lave already described as devoted to the admission of the Members of the Heuse of Commons on public occasions. s t was through those doors that the Council entered, r vlien ordered to be " called in" by the house, either at! " he first sitting of the house in the morning, after divi- j ions, or when they had actually withdrawn from the louse; for it sometimes happened, that when Council! vere ordered to withdraw, they only stood down from the step which is placed near the bar, and remained in ® tiie house during the discussions. There were chairs within this spaced for the occasional accommodation of the Council and Agents. 13.— The King's Attorney- Genefal, Sir Robt. Giffard, Knight. 14 The King's Solicitor- General, Sir J. S. Copley, Knight. 15— The Queen's Attorney- General, Mr. Brougham, ir— The Queen's Solicitor- General, Mr. Deninan. 17— Mr. Gurney, the short- hand writer, IS—' The Witness, > f! 19—' The Interpreter. There was a second Inter. preter, who attended on the part of the Queen, and who i generally stood close to the Interpreter of tbe house. I H e the back- ground, behind the figures standing at the bur, f [ were distributed the remainder of the Council and f i Agents. - j 20— The space allotted to the Gentlemen connected t ' with the Public Press, who were in attendance every : ; day to take notes. The gentlemen engaged in coilectf. g - intelligence for the daily press of London alone are I i estimated at more than one hundred, including the r j morning and evening journals. Besides tilese, there :, re - • other gentlemen, to a considerable amount, connected s with the weekly journals, and with papers published t; either twice or thrice a week. A ticket was issued by , ; Sir Thomas Tyrwhitt for the admission of one gentlo . ! man connected with each paper; so that there were ge- • nerally twenty or thirty reporters in the house at one ; ' time. These were relieved by their coadjutors at the . i end of every hour or half hour, as tbe arrangements of ' their respective establishments required. The greatest 1 exertions were made in this way by the Evening Papers, | which generally published from three to four columns of the proceedings at four o'clock in the afternoon gf the same day; and in second, third, and fourth editions : gave sketches ofthe business to theadjourment. It may ' not be an uninteresting fact to state, that the estimated sum annually received by the literary gentlemen connected with the London journals alone, exceeds £ 45,000. 21— The spaces allotted to the accommodation of the public, who were admitted by Peers' orders. Among the persons obtaining admission by these means, we observed many individuals of distinction, and several foreign noblemen. The greatest deeorum was preserved thi- ougni out the proceedings, and from the praiseworthy strict- ' ness with which the door- keepers performed their duty, this space was not at any time inconveniently crowded', 22— The side folding- door, at which the Queen entered on those days of the trial when it was her pleasure to attend the house. At the top is a massive bronze cornice, bearing a luxuriant festoen and thick drapery of scarict cloth. It is through this door, too, thatstrangers invariably enter: it is under the constant charge of a door- keeper. Peers also occasionally pass by this avenue- There are similar folding- doors to the right and left of the throne. These lead from the robing- room, in which his Majesty, when lie attends the house, attirtw himself in his rebes of state. That en the right is used only by the King when he meets his parliament; that on the left by the Lord Chancellor. There is also a side door at this end of the house for the admit- ion of Peers and the Members of the House of Commons. 1850. SUPPLEMENT TO TUB LIVERPOOL MERCURY. 117 as— The Queen, in the place in which she sat on tboke days when she was present at the trial. The chair she sM on was richly gilt, and covered with scarlet cloth: slie sat with her side to the bar, ami her face to fhe witnesses : she occasionally took notes: her foot rested on a scarlet footstool. At the adjournment of the house, every day, a great numbar of ladies and gentlemen were admitted to see the manner in which it was prepared. On those occasions every lady seemed to think it a necessary form to take her seat in the Queen's chair, an honour which was, no doubt, a source of subsequent pride. Persons desirous of this { Measure, we bel leve, are now admitted every day ( Sunday's excepted) to the house. We challenge this inspection, as a test of the correctness of our representation. 24— Lady Hamilton, on a bench by the side of the Queen. Her Majesty's chamberlains, Sir Wm. Gell and the Hon. K.

The scarlet curtain which hangs in front of this box, to preserve it from the draught of the door, is sometimes used to screen the female friends of the Peers from observation while attending to the proceedings of the house. They are seated on stools, not more than two or three at a time, and wrap themselves in the drapery.

Clerk Assistant of the house had a seat and desk close to the bar in front of the King's Attorney and Solicitor- General. It was the duty of this gentleman to take notes himself for the purpose of checking the notes of the short- hand writer. The minutes thus checked, were afterwards printed and distributed to the Peers every day. The rapidity with which they were thus accurately transcribed and printed excited the surprise of the Peers. Several assistant door- keepers were employed _ on this occasion, all of whom wore the badge of their office. The King's arms, sast in brass and gilt, suspended from their necks by. gilt chains. These officers were all full dressed in black, wearing silk stockings, and silver latchets in their shoes. In addition to the door- keepers, tlie King's marshals, in scarlet liveries, with their staves, attended in the passages and at the outer doors to preserve order. Two rooms were assigned for the use of her Majesty's Counsel and Agents. These were close to the door at which we have described strangers to have been admitted. One of these was appropriated to the Queen's use, and tlere she had several conferences with her Council. The witnesses, when ushered to the bar, were attended by Mr. Quarme, the deputy Usher of the Black Rod. They were sworn by Mr. Cowper, the Clerk of Parliament. The house generally met at ten in the morning, and adjourned at five. © rigtnal. To the EDITORS of the Liverpool MERCURY. GENTLEMEN, You have had several times the complaints of the Hunns laid before you, and indeed with just cause. I have met with my share of disappointment, when engaged in that disagreeable office; so many " Call agains," and so many " promises made only to be broken," as quite tired me. But it is not in the collecting of money only that there is reason to complain, but in the general routine of business there is, in many of our mercantile offices, such a want of attention exhibited, as quite to impede business, and put every thing in confusion. It would be endless to enumerate the many particulars, in which this neglect is most palpable. At a few offices I could mention, it is generally twelve or one o'clock before the principal comes down ; he is then so hurried that lie cannot attend to you, but you must call in the evening; if you go then, he is, likely, gone out to a dinner party, or some other cause prevents his being dowil: and thus we may lose half a day to no purpose. The man of business should not, like a comet, pursue an eratic course, but should move like a planet, with a beautiful regularity and order. I am led to believe there is no real necessity for many offices being open to such late hours as they are. I one day heard an eminent broker say, it was a good means of keeping young men from baa company, and out of the way of temptation. We may as well say, that because the world is full of evil and temptation, the most effiiient means of securing ourselves would be to retire to a convent. Now I really think this evil to be a very serious one, being both injurious to health and to moral improvement. But I am fearful it will be long before this nuisance is entirely removed. A few of our petty speculators having formed a notion that their illuminated windows, till ten or eleven o'clock, proclaim to the public the excess of business they have.— But I have trespassed on the brevity you wish in a C O R R E S P O N D E N T . L I N E S . Oh! say not, thoughtless! that thine eyes To nature's charms are blind; That in her soul- strung harmonies Thine ears no music find; That all her thousand sympathies Are strangeVs to thy mind. Is there not freshness in flie breeze, When morning's light is shed; Is there not beauty in the trees With green boughs garlanded; And hast thou not in books like these Thy sweetest lessons read ? Is there no fragrance to thy sense, When summer's south- wind throws Upon the air the redolence Of every burstling rose ; And gentle, fanning gales dispense A breath of deep repose ? And does thy soul no rapture feel, When, rolling loud and deep, Thou listenest to the thunder peal Upon some cavern'd steep, And feel'st the shock'd earth sickly reel Beneath thy daring feet ? And can'stthou gaze with unchang'd eye, On shapes in beauty made ; On those whose hearts are purity, And eyes are brightly ray'd ? Is all such stainless sanctity, To thee a voiceless shade ? Oh ! erring one ! though thou may'st spurn These treasures, and deride Their richness, and vain hearted turn From all their hopes aside, The time shall come when thou wilt learn To rue thy worldly pride. Liverpool, Sept. 19. Y. Sdecttons. BETWEEN CA DIALOGUE HOUSE AND BTo the Editors of the Mercury— Permit ape to inquire, through the medium < Jf your esteemed publication, whether or not there is a clause in the act of Parliament lately passed, for improvements, & c. in this Sown, prohibiting the use of san- hooks in warehouses. I understand there was to have been such a clause, on acoount of a shocking accident which happened here eonie | ime back. An answer will particularly oblige. See. A JIASTBR XIYAIXER. C.- H.—' Reft of my master far away, Empty my halls, late filled and gay, With cringing courtiers of all stations, Obsequious to the lord of nations, I feel forsaken— yet I view Myriads with shoutings visit you. How comes it that my nobler state Is thus forlorn and desolate ? Have I not Chinese halls and vases, Barbaric forms with outre faces— All Art can frame or gold can buy, All Sense can wish or taste defy ? R.- II.—' Tis true, my friend, the charm is gone Which made you once be gazed upon, And well your state the truth evinces— " That we should put no trust in Princes." Your Master left you for his cot, Where much I trow that peace was not, Since he forsook it for the sea In pain without variety. I fear he left you to be free From what he else must daily seat— The sight of pow'r with truth at strife— The triumph of an injured wife. To Eldon, Sidmouth, Castlereagh, The wise indissoluble three, Yon and your master owe a sorrow, Which will not end, I fear, to- morrow. I'm gay, because I need no court Of sycophants to yield me sport: My inmates seek no aid from art, To hide the festrings of the heart ; Their deeds the bar of truth may audit— To them a nation gives its plaudit. C.' H.— You boast your Queen— as well as you I, too, could boast of Mrs. Q; Yet still was left without a reason, As if my walls had plotted treason ; And tho' with mobs I've no collision— Nay, they shout at me in derision; Tho' bay'nets gleam beneath the screen, Where my twin columns rise between—• My heavy front and place span new, ' Yclept in triumph Waterloo; Tho' all is safe, as safe can be, Still I'm forsaken !— wo is me! B.- IIi— I want no bay'nets for my guard, My doors are neither lock'd nor barr'd; Peace rests within my walls, and Fear Will upt approach that dwelling net( r, Where millions ev'ry setting sun Give for its weal an orison. The plumed helm, the charger swelling, The guard around the regal dwelling, Are oft times trusted to in vain—^ Read Naples, Portugal, and Spain. The strongest safeguard earth imparts To monarchs, is their subjects' hearts. C.- H—, Alas ! my hopes seem fled for ever— I shall behold my master never ! My halls, I l'ear, will useless lie, And I succumb to destiny. No mar? the crape- cl^ d prelate wallas, Or bishop clad in purple stalks Along my chambers, big with station, Intriguing for a new translation. No soldier struts, no sailor sues, No antlcr'd peer the state- bed views- No titled prostitute, in scarlet, Now sanctifies the name of harlot- Even Old Bags and Castlereagh, Who from no levee kept away, All leave me to lone misery; All, all, forsake me !— wo is me. B.- IL— 0 think not so: Saturnian times Will come again, when other climes Have swallow'd back the lying crew, Which they disgorged in England— new To nought but virtue and to shame. Their foul employers, who by name, Contain in each as little worth As e'er was found in men on earth, Surely thy master's ear abuse And ever right and wrong confuse. But, pure as Heaven's own arch of blue, When not a dull cloud shades its hue, My mistress stands, and scatters wide, Her foul- mouth foes with Royal pride. I'm ever joyous, you may see; There is no solitude with me. When great ones shall, as well as others, Each keep his 6wil wifs, hot another's, And some day, cloth'd in purity, To lower ranks examples be, Then you'll rejoice, perhaps with more Of reason than you did before. But crowds of visiters I view— So, my sad friend, I'll say Adieu! C. R. Monday Sept. 18. The idea of the preceding Dialogue is taken from Dialogue of Swift's, between Marble- hill and Richmond- hill.

All these were assembled— all these and some more: The candles were burnt to the socket; The windows were fasten'd, and bolted the door, And so still, you had heard a pill fall on the floor, Had the Doctor dropt one from his pocket. They spoke not a word, the discussion now flags, For the Cabinet's quite in the dumps: C— STL— GIL shook his head— the K— G whiskers wags, Brazen C G'S chap- fallen, and even Old Bags Dumb- founder'd as if he'd the mumps! Ah 1 what could occasion this terrible pause; This silence so solemn, alas ? ' Twas the Bill of Divorce and Disgrace was the cause; For the Doctor foretold they would throw out each clause, And his words were, " the pill will not pass." No reply was attempted, but silent they sat. Like the Council of stones at Stonehenge; At length cried the Monarch, half choking with fat, " Why C— STL— GH, BAGS, what the deuce are you at ? Where's a K— G'S and a C— CK— LD'S revenge ?"

Two crutches supported its figure so drear, Two props almost broken in pieces; And as the wan spectre advane'd to them near, They saw one inscribed, " Ministerial fear," On the other was, " Royal Caprices." " Degradation— Divorce" were mark'd on its forehead : The Ghost to them all was well known ; They drew back in dismay from a vision so horrid, V— NS— TT— T'S sore eyes were the only things florid, And die K—> slunk behind his own throne.

GENTLEMEN, Not long since, I visited thecitv of Dublin, and of co » rse was called upon to admire the improvements and fine buildings in that beautiful place. The inhabitants vied with each other in pointing out thn Miaous' works in progress, and in extolling their extensive charitable institutions, which seemed to exhibit a fine picture of public spirit and benevolence. In the midst of such scenes, I was tempted to believe that many of the reports relative to decaying trade, and the increasing wretchedness and slavery of these ill- fated people, were scarcely compatible with what I witnessed. My doubts, however, were speedily at an end; on reading, the other day, certain items connected with our government expenditure, in tlie city of Dublin, for the last year, which at once explained the seeming contradiction, and gave a meaning to all I had beheld. As the tricks of statC'Craft cannot be too much exposed, I subjoin a fetr of these singular charges, and they will at least, serve to show how John Biill and his neighbour Patrick are bamboozled, the one out of his money, and the other out of his liberty, by those whose duty it ought to be to protect both. The former, as is customary, is corn- E elled to pay the piper, on all occasions, while the latter as the satisfaction of knowing that if he be made to wear ignoble chains, they are at least gilded, at the expense of those who have so artfully contrived to rivet them. That both parties may learn wisdom, and that the spirit of truth and liberty may speedily rise up among them, is the fervent prayer of Yours, & c. A. B.

Also, exclusive of £ 10,000, to provide for fever eases. The greater part of which is supposed to be expended in Dublin. There wants nothing farther in order to account for the loyalty of the CORPORATION of Dublin !.' To the Editors of the Mercury Having waited tjil the present time, hoping that I should have seen in the plan of the new market some place appointed for the sale of Cattle, so as to remove the present Cow- market; but so far nothing of the sort appearing, ( though the whole plan may yet be incomplete) I think it high time the above nuisance should be removed, it has too long disgraced one of the greatest thoroughfares in the townand it may now be observed, that the cattle are increas ing more and more into Church- street, every market day. In the neighbourhood of Queen- square therc'appears sufficient space for the purpose I have named, and it probably may be the intention of the parties to build a spacious Cattle- market; but should it not yet have been contemplated, I hope the present hint will not be lost. AN OLD INHABITANT, And a friend to the Improvement of the Town, Anecdote of Sir Gerard Noel— When the decision was to take place in the House of Commons respectingthe impeachment of Lord Melville, Pitt reckoned upon Sir Gerard ( then Colonel) Noel, as the son- in- law of Lord Barham, who was at that time First Lord of the Admiralty, voting with the ministry, and made sure of aniajority, however small. Contrary to this expectation. Sir Gerard, who always votes as an independent country gentleman, according to his conscience, gave his vote for the impeachment, which brought the votes equal, instead of giving Pitt a majority of two. The Speaker's vote decided it. Thus it may be said that the uprightness of Sir Gtrard caused tie ailpptiqp of that popular measure, i n SUPPLEMENT TO THE LIVERPOOL MERCtJRY. OCT 6, S e f c n c e of t l j c © u w n . MR. BROUGHAM'S SPEECH. { Continued from Page 112- 1 Baron Grimm, Minister at Wirtemberg, and the Baron Baden, who succeeded Ompteda in his wretched employ, and was one of those who dared to insult the Royal Consort of his Royal Master, who was as much his Queen, as she was theirs, and which insults rendered it impossible for her Majesty to remain where she was, even if the calls of honour did not force her to come away. There was also a Grand Duks mentioned, by Barbara Krantz, who was at the place where the scene was alleged to have taken place, who was equally active and unscrupulous as any of the other agents. B'. ron Grimm, in the zeal which he felt for his employers, scrupled not to throw away all those feelings which a man of honour may not dismiss even on the most interesting occasions of private life; but Baron Grimm was a diplomatist; he was in an official situation, and he pre aimed in diplomacy all views that were needful were honourable. He heard the Queen nas about to arrive ; he artfully accommodated her then Royal Highness with the use of his rooms ; kindly left his principal apartments to go into worse and other lodgings, and, as soon as she departed, on that very day fce returned to the rooms With his coadjutor, and, as Barbara Krantz observed, was running up and down stairs from one room to another, examining the furniture, prying into the beds, and sedulously taking notes of the most minute particulars, in order to send a report to those who he ( Mr. Brougham) was sure if they knew what dirty errands he employed himself upon, were above sending him. In this capacity he was not ashamed to appear sedulous and unscrupulous, regardless of his own dignity, and forgetful of his Sovereigns ; but he could not condescend to become a witness ; he could not come before their Lordships, however necessary or important his appearance there might be. Here it should be remarked, that there was not a material witness brought to speak to the scene Krantz gave evidence about. Krantz alone was brought to swear to matters it would have been of paramount importance that this Baron had been brought to corroborate; of paramount importance when it was remembered that he it was who entered the room immediately, the very moment after the Queen left i t ; and would be able therefore to say if Barbara ivrantz spoke the truth. But in spite of the activity, the resources, and the little scruple the German agent had, this was all the evidence they were able to gather together for this most important point. Let their Lordships look to the contradictory account given of the motives which induced this insulated witness to come over. She told them that nothing but compulsion had brought her over; but it afterwards came out that the compulsory step taken against her had not deprived her of tinrS or inclination to make a bargain for her loss of time. Their Lordships wouldfind by the printedevidence, how reluctantly she gave her evidence on this point. She went to Hanover to be examined. How much did she get for going?—" Little, very little— so very little, that she could not remember." Then, it might besaid, the less it was, the easier to remember; but it turned out, that it could be easily remembered, because it was great. What would they say, if it turned out, that this nothing was larger than five or six times her yearly « r ' g" s i What, if it was ten times as much ? What, if including all her perquisites, when added to another sum which she got for going for five or six days to Hanover, it turned out to be about double and half as much again as ever she received, in wages, perquisites, accidents, & c. in the course of one year ot her occuliation ? Would any one of ordinary understanding pretend to believe a woman, who would attempt to deny her remembrance of such a circumstance as this ? Such a sum must have made an impression on the mind of any one in her situation. They found the same equivocating answers when she told of leaving the room, when she saw the. Princess on the bed. Slie did not an:- * e- : n a straight- forward manner as to the motive wiucti took her immediately after that to the room of the Countess of Oldi. She said she did not go to see if tiie Countess of Oldi was there, she was sure it was the Queen she saw. But their Lordships would observe, as a most material point, that if there existed any doubt en the witness's mind as to the person she saw on that occasion, there was 110 proof of its being the Queen, for because a woman was there, non constat, it was the Queen, It was evident she was doubtful as to this particular. He must now conduct their Lordships ovcrtheAlps. — It was impossible that a person under the influence of his ordinary senses and understanding, could have been in tlie situation which the boatmen described, in the presence of 11 men. The falsehood of his statement was so glaring, that it almost dispensed with the necessity of all cross- examination. And why had the other men no: been called ? It was for the other side to call them at'.- i . lot for him. When this man was asked, did he over say this before to any body ? Yes, was the reply. When and where? At Milan, before the Commissior.. Did he ever mention it before that time to any person whatever ? Never. And so it was with all the rest. The commissioners alone could extract these stories. So it had been with Rastelli, with respect to tha; abominable transaction which he had represented to have taken place in the open face of day, and when ],.. v,, is within four paces of the cariage. He had been a witness of this strange abomination, and yet his lips had b. een hermetically sealed upon it for the space of ten moiths, and theu only opened to the Milan Commissioi. During all this interval, had he lived the life of a her. lit, secluded from the wor'd, and shut out from all ac. css to a mortal ear either of man or woman ? Had h 0 friend, no relation, 110 wife, no child, to whom tlii, tale was to be told ? In his employment as a boatman, did he meet with no passengers who would be .". nuscd at its recital? The fact was, and he would prove it in evidence, that this man had declared himself t'- it he was in the habit of coining stories for the • imus ' ment of his passengers, and for which stories he v;: is - jaid' by. them. How many of their Lordships, vhow lips were not under court regulation, whose waa'e movements were not disciplined and squared by ( m i manner, who did not entirely act the part of cmrtiers; how many of their Lordships were there Tvho would not instantly have named such a circum. t.' ance to a fri. nd ? He was certain there was no man, wt least where the parties evidently showed what they « Ud not wish to conceal, but Vould instantly have told of nuch a circumstance. But, in this case, the witness was et i ongst people where the ear would not have been contaminated, and where the cheek would not have crimisoned at such a communication. Yet, he had not told St to one living creature, eyen among his own compassions. He might have seen a woman of low condition M- oauait such acts, and passed it over without notice; fliurto sea a Princess Iciss her menial servant in an open • Qwat, and in fhe presence' of such men, was a sight un- Seard of, monstrous, and portentous; and no man could conceal it for a day. But this man keeps it to himself, for days, weeks, months ; aild the firs? place in which it is related, is at Milan befor'q tile commissioners. He did, not conceal it for- days, weeks, and months. He > r. ig'lt h » ve kept that secret wltidi he had invented, because he well knew, that if he had told it, it would no have been believed by his neighbours. He kept it as long, and no longer, than the time of his going to Milan, where he earned his reward. Did their Lordships recollect the cook of Trieste ? To any man who saw him, and had not forgotten him, his image would rise before his face at the moment. Did they recollect that expression— that physiognomy— those eyes— that nose— that lecherous mouth ! He was sure they would recollect the eye of that pander of Italy ; the gloated ! eye, as the poet had called it, which he had seen as the 1 eye of an ancient tailor. But he would prove the perjury of this wretch. He at least should be made an , example of. He'was here, and should be taken hold I of. Proof could be found against others, but he at 1 least should not escape. He would contradict him by ] the most unquestionable evidence; by the position of I the room. He would show, that what he had sworn : was impossible to be true. He would show that the ! Queen had slept at Trieste only one night in her life- She left it the next morning, and never more crossed the threshold of the gates of Trieste. He would take this as a sample of the filthy cargo; it was damaged enough, and would show the quality of the whole. He would say nothing about the pictures, the gold chain, and the many other idle fictions got up to variegate the general complexion of the tale. He knew not whether Iacchimo was the legitimate offspring of Shakspeare or not. But this he knew, and all would be ready to admit, that he was the lawful brother of these Italian witnesses. He says: - " Away to Britain " Post I in this design :— Well may you, Sir, " Remember me at Court, where I was taught " Of your chaste daughter, the wide difference " Twix't amorous ana villainous. Beingthus quencli'd " Of hope, not longing, mine Italian brain " ' Gan in your duller Britain, operate " Most vilely; for my ' vantage, excellent. " And, to be brief, my practice so prevailed, " That I returned with similar proof enough " To drive the noble Leonatus mad, " By wounding his belief in her renown " With tokens thus, and thus; averring notes " Of chamber hanging, pictures, this, her bracelet, " ( O, cunning, how I got it!) nay, some marks " Of secret on her person, that he could not " But think her bond of chastity quite craeked," " My Lords," said Mr. Brougham, " the evidencehere is the same ; it is produced by the same country; for the same purposes, and for the same effect. The same signs and tiie same tokens, by a most extraordinary coincidence, are those by which the two cases are sought to be established. He should advert to the different heads or counts of the Bill of Pains and Penalties. First, then, at Naples, the Princsss was charged with the unrestrained indulgence of passions which she had then first began to cherish ; or, at least, ten days had only elapsed, since the time at which they were alleged to have commenced. And yet, this was a Princess of unimpeached life, of an unimpeachable character. This had been proved by stronger evidence than if her life had never been suspected. Her character had come forth purer and brighter from the fire, than if it had never been tried, after two solemn acquittals from two solemn investigations. Two sets of ministers had contributed thus to clear her character to the world. But how did these same men say that she has de. meaned herself in Italy ? Why, they represent her who was in this proud situation, to have gone to that country, to have hired a servant, a menial, with him to have moved towards Naples ; something less than a month passed, and the degradation of this illustrious Princess was said to be complete. She was represented as the mistress of that menial servant, and as plunging herself at once into the lowest situation of infamy. If they could not believe this, the case must fail; for on the very second night of their residence at Naples, began the adulterous connexion. Because if what Demont and Majocchi had sworn, were true, the act of adultery must have been completed that night. The Learned Counsel then reverted to - the evidence of Barbara Krantz. She had said that on the bed there were no sheets, nor bed clothes, but that there was a sofa in the room, and nothing else. This was her answer to the interrogatories of my friend, Mr. Williams. But afterwards it came out that there was a large bed in the room, that she did not recollect all these particulars the first day, but that now she could speak more positively. And next came out the story that the bed had the appearance of two persons having slept in it. Was it possible, said Mr Brougham, that coming asshe did, to sw- ear to a charge of adidtery, that she would not recollect points of such importance ? Was it possible that she could, on the first day of her examination, forget those points, and afterwards recollect them so distincdy? She also remembered, but could not tell on what night, or in what week, but she saw Bergami coming out of his room, naked, and advancing towards her. She did not, on this, start back, but advanced ; nor did Bergami start back, but advanced, and she made her escape; but observed Bergami going towards the chamber of the Queen, and with greater alacrity than a husband would go to the bed of hit, wife. But there was a most singular omission on the part of the Attorney- General. There weie two maids slept in the r. ext room. Both it seems heard the child cry. and must have hoard any conversation that passed. ' Why not call these persons ? Why not ask whether they communicated any thing that had passed. Because they could not, it was all false. Next was Madame Demont's testimony, what was her story ? He prayed their Lordships to attent to this. Begami, it seems, slept on the opposite side of the court, while well, but on being seized with a violent fever, he is brought from his usual apartments, and put in a room near the Princess. Is it not somewhat extraordinary, that the period selected for this operation was, while Bergami was ill, instead of being in perfect health ; but this, he said, was in perfect conformity with the whole of the conduct pussued by the Queen. For it would seem from the story that they tell, that all her efforts were directed to destroy her life, property, character and honour. There was another witness, arid he wished to know why they did not call her, he meant the sister of Demont. She was their witness. They were on their defence. For this he said was a prosecution, and he thought, that the Bill of Pains and Penalties ought to have stronger, or at least as strong proofs in support of it as the removing of a fife or a limb. The Queen was in a most peculiar and perplexing situation. But it must be the fate of her who was pursued by the Grimms, the Omptedas, the Radens, and the Douglases of her own country. Such is her unhappy fate, that she cannot tell, even at the present hour, whom she dare to trust. At this very hour she may possibly be harbouring another viper in her bosom ; for she has in service, at this moment, the sister of the witness Demont. To that they would probably answer, " Then, why not call her sister ?" He could, if he would reply to that argument of his Learned Friends, in the words of an ancient author, That no ramparts or fortifications were so good a security against the wicked, as that mistrust which nature had generally implanted in us all." But such mistrust was. hateful to a^ i innocent woman; to the victim even of the Grimms, the Omptedas, the Saccliis, and the Demonts. He had no doubt that all who heard him would believe that he was not bound to call witnesses ; and if he and his Learned Friends, who with him were of Counsel for her Majesty, had been called upon by their Illustrious Client to give * n opinion on this subject, he should have felt no difficulty in deciding against the calling of witnesses; and tie would not raise a suspicion in that breast which up to the present moment from the commencement of the evidence to the end of it, had put suspicion at defiance. He should have felt no difficulty in leaving the case as it stood on the evidence against his Illustrious Client, but her Majesty who had seen no reason to part with a faithful servant although she was the sister of an ingrate, her Majesty had desired that sister to be examined. The sister of Demont would be produced before their Lordships, and they would then have an opportunity of pronouncing upon the degree of credit which could be given to the sister first examined. He now came to the evidence of Sacchi, which stood unsupported. And here he must observe a remark which he had heard made in another place, contrary, as it was, to the usual penetration awd discrimination of the individual who was the author of it. It was said if this were a plot, and the witnesses were all perjured, why should they have stopped short in their stories ? Why should they not have gone those lengths that would convince all mankind ? But the principal point of precaution in laying a plot was to avoid swearing too hard. Why at Naples, had they not called other witnesses ? For the very reason that they most carefully avoid calling two persons to speak to the same thing, for fear that in cross- examination the story made up between them might be exploded. On one occasion ner Majesty was described as being hissed out of the Theatre. This must have been known to more than one person. It could not be concealed. The concealment of a massome ofher friends, the promotion into power of others, and a series of other misfortunes not necessary to detail, deprived of all her most able defenders. This baing the situation of the two parties, he apprehended it would not be improper in him to intreat their Lordships tw caution themselves against the influence which may naturally be made by the weight of one of these parties, and the degree of prejudice which might be raised against the other. No pre- conception, no presumption, , no rumour whateverwas permitted to in terfere with theirconsideration .- The evidence, and that alone, was the criterion by which they were guided, and without such criterion there would not be the least chance of their administering impartial justice. The Learned Gentleman here adverted to the difficulties which had been thrown in the way of her Majesty's defence, by the refusal of the list of witnesses, and of the specification of the times and places. In speaking of the whole case; and before he entered into detail, he must remark that it was impossible not to see, and seeing, the better to admit, that the whole case was founded and bottomed in perjury— perjury was as clear and distinct to every mind as that he was then addressing the House. But was this a novelty > Had they never heard of cases in this or any other country, got up by persons who presented themselves for the purpose of committing wilful and wicked perjury Would it appear novel that persons without any apparent motive should worship the rising sun, that persons of a base and ignoble nature, should tamper with those whom they considered desolate and oppressed ? Was there no motive arising from the expectation of reward for bringing forward against a Princess who was the subject of persecution in her own country ? His Lordship had frequently observed the clamorous exertions which they had been compelled to moke to obtain information as to the remuneration of witnesses, and he had also observed how cautiously and industriously it . , . , , „ , . . „ , . , had been withheld. In the case of the Lugan's witquerade, like the fabrications of their case, could not nesses, why had not Mr. Powell been called to prove ttar withstand the light of the next morning. Why was no ; importance of their testimony ? Because they would second witness brought to speak to the state of the then have had an opportunity of getting that informa. beds— the state of the linen ? What had become of Ann ? He ( Mr. B.) could tell them— she was here! Why wasshe not called? He could answer thattoo, she was not an Italian. If they believed the witnesses, the case of adultery was as clcarly made out as ever was any one that procured a verdict in Westminster- hall. But if they did give a verdict on the testimony of such witnesses tliey would be worse than the jacobins of Paris for murdering Marie Antoinette. If a witnesswereproved to perjure himself in any, the most trifling particular, the grave, parts of his story were not entitled to credit. If they proceeded on other principles, what safety would there be for any of woman- kind against the malice of men ; what chance of escape from S: e toils of perjured conspirators ?— He asked for the Queen no other justice, he desired no other safety for her than she would deiive under the circumstances- of the case from any Court of Justice in the land. Here Mr. Brougham alluded to the story of the rapidity of Bergami's promotion. If, said he, the story of Majocci and Demont could be believed, he had been in three weeks promoted to the bed of the Queen. But he had it in proof that his promotion was gradual; that during the long journey on which they went, he was courier; that on that journey he was promoted from riding on horseback to go in his own carnage, and so on to the situation which he held at the time he quitted the Queen's service. Was this the conduct of an amorous, nay, insane woman, as tliey would wish torepresent her; she suffered him to remain months, nay years, without elevating him. Bergami was not, as was represented, of low origin, but was a reduced Italian gentleman. He formerly lived at General Pino's, was in his service during the French campaign, and was much respected in that capacity. A vacancy having occurred in the Queen's establishment, Bergami was proposed by an Italian Nobleman for the situation. He applied to the Queen's Chamberlain, and was engaged in the service of the Queen, Without her knowledge. But he would not dwell on this subject, for, said Mr. Brougham, guilt there is none, impropriety there is none, levity there is none, witnesses there are none. But, even if there were he could stand on better ground, he could appeal to her former life, her former conduct, to the time when she lived amongst their Lordships, and under the special protection of our ever- to- belamented and venerable Sovereign. He begged to remind their Lordships, of that beautiful passage in the sacred writings. He alluded to the passage of Susannah before the elders. " They hardened their hearts, they washed their eyes, that they might not look upon the heavens." But such is the will of that divine providence that sees all hearts, that, owing to a slight contradiction in the testimony, judgment was favourably pronounced. And was this the kind of proof, by which the present proceedings were to be supported ? Was this the kind of testimony by which a Bill, anomalous to the laws of the land, an ex post facto law was to be supported. [ Here the Learned Counsel addressed their Lordships, in a most solemn and impressive tone of voice.] My Lords, I implore and intreat of you to pause before j ou pronounce your best judgment on the evidence that has been produced, if you do not, it will be the only judgment that will fail of producing the intended effect, and return upon yourselves. Rescue your country from the impending danger. Rescue the throne from the jeopardy in which it is at present placed. Reescue the church from the ruin that threatens it. Rescue the aristocracy of England from the execrations of that people, separated from whom you can no more escape, than tne blossom torn from the stem. The King and the Church have been pleased to exclude the Queen from the prayers of the nation; but the prayers of her people have been doubled and redoubled, and never snail I cease to implore of the Throne of Mercy to shower down the treasure of its mercy 011 that generous people which the conduct of their rulers does not deserve. [ Here the Learned Gentleman concluded his powerful and pathetic speech.] Mr. Williams advanced to the bar; and, after a few words of explanation with the Lord Chancellor, commenced an address to the house. He felt the great importance of his duty, but rejoiced that tiie abilities of Mr. Brougham had so much lessened his task, which would now be but to fill up the powerful outline which had been drawn by his masterly hand. The first point to which he should request their Lordships' attention would be the question, " Who are the parties to this proceeding ? a question by no means an immaterial consideration, even in the outset; for, after the best attention lie had given to the present case, lie declared he could not tell to whom he was opposed; though he knew very well that he must be opposed to somebody, and he knew equally well that he was defending a prosecution, the third with which his royal mistress had been pursued. Quite clear it was that he was opposed to somebody; and perhaps the difficulty was somewhat greater, from the circumstance of the prosecutor not being defined. On one side theirLordships must see, the government, an expression including all the power, all the wealth, and all the influence which this great country possesses; and on the other hand, was her Majesty, a Queen, under tion. The Learned Gentleman then proceeded to comment on the evidence'of Majocchi. He refered their Lordships to page 39 in the minutes of the evidence, where lie was asked whether there was more than one passage to the chamber of the Princess ? he said there was not, and on his cross examination, he said there was a passage through the cabinet. He then detailed other curious circumstances which gave his evidence marks of self contradiction. F R O M O C R LONDON C O R R E S P O N D E N T. Mr. Williams proceeded to comment at great length on the evidence adduced for the prosecution, and directed his observations particularly to the testimony of Mademoiselle De Mont, who he would say, without using an odious monysyllable, had committed a double entendre upon her oath. He referred to cage 253 in the evidence, which regarded the Princess s conduct at the ball at Naples. On the examination of Mademoiselle De Mont in chief, she was asked, Did you assist the Princess? " I did not."— Did she change her dress entirely for that purpose ? " Yes." It afterwards appeared that she knew nothing about the matter, for she was not in the room. The allegation, therefore, that the Princess entirely changed her dress, was wholly a fabrication. The Solicitor- general had commented upon this part of the evidence, and had stated facts not warranted by it. The Learned Counsel then referred to the evidence of Majocchi. He was a witness who would ever be remembered by the British nation. Which of their Lordships, upon the examinatian in chief of this witness, would have learnt that the shores of England had ever been previously blessed by the presence of that individual ? He next called the attention of their Lordships to the testimony of the Captain and the Mate, who, on their return would be the objects of admiration to all their countrymen. The Captain had gone through hi3 examination in chief, and cross- examination without the least hint being given that he had a claim against government, until, by an accidental question from one of their Lordships, it appeared that he had an unsatisfied demand against Bergami. He next alluded to what had fallen from the Solicitor- gc- neral, who had made a false and unfounded representation of the evidence, in stating that it was a bed- room in which the Princess changed her dress. No such fact, however, appeared. Another gratuitous assertion was, that Bergami and the Princess were locked up for an hour in the bedroom. In one little sentence, the Learned Solicitor had| introduced two strong pregnant leading facts, neither of them founded in truth. He next proceeded to comment upon the opening speech of the Attorney- general, and contrasted it with the comparative paucity of the evidence adduced for the prosecution. lie then dwelt upon the strange, unnatural, and impossible memory of Theodore Majocci, who could only recollect ail that made against the Queen, and thus committed a negative perjury. He noticed a discrepancy in this witness's testimony with regard to the presence of the Queen in the chamber of Bergami, when he was sick and having concluded this part of the subject, he entered upon an investigation of the testimony of De Mont and especially that part of it which related to the supposed double entendres in her letters. lie argued that this was quite an after thought, got upon consultation with the other side, and after a night's reflection. Her pretence that by the capital of Europe she meant Columbia, was ridiculous: ncque rationcm neque modum habet uUum ; and it was only rationcm iusanire, and a waste of words to endeavour to expose it further. He felt satisfied that in her praises of the Queen she had spoken her real sentiments, and that she did not mean at that time to cover with an eulogiutn the malignant hatred she had since conceived against her Majesty. The probabilities were all in favour of her being sincere; for that the praise was merited there could be no doubt, after the panegyric pronounced upon her Majesty from the highest authority of modern times, that " she was the life,, grace, and ornament of the society in which she moved." These words had been used by a man of classical taste, of great skill in modern and ancient languages; and who' could not, like De Mont, have meant that for a double entendre.— Mr. Williams next called the attention of the House to the declaration made on the other side, and which he had heard with so much satisfaction, that this was not a cause between party and party, but a proceeding in which all the evidence ought to be adduced. Yet the Solicitor- general challenged the Queen's Counsel to bring forward Bartolomeo Bcrgami, Louis Bergami, Brunette, and the Countess of Oldi. He would ask why the Learned Counsel for the Bill had net called Doctor Holland, Lieut. Hownam, the Noble Ladies about the Queen, who were all competent and credible witnesses ? It was the other side that had not dared to bring forward these respectable persons; but d 1 tn taccant, toquuntur. Their sdeiice was in favour of the Queen. Such a challenge had no meaning; it was trlnni imbelh sine ictu; though in some minds it might create an undeserved prejudice. What motive was there for calling Louis Bergami? Merely because Majocchi had asserted that either he or Camera had waited upon a series of treatment to which at present he slionid not, the Queen and Bergami one morning at breakfast. | apply an epithet, a Queen shorn of her b a n s , a Queen Suppose B.

Protesting as he did to the utmost of his power that the non- production of these witnesses was in fact a clamorous evidence in favour of her Majesty, yet when such high interests were at stake, they ought to have been called. The other side by three years application, and by examinations taken in Italy, had been able to ascertain what their witnesses would be able to establish. The Queen had no such advantage. The Karl of Lauderdale observed that four o'clock had arrived; and the House adjourned to the next day.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1820. C O N S E Q U E N C E S OF T H E P R O C E E D I N G S AGAINST THE QUEEN.— So numerous are the political occurrences which are rising throughout Europe, and, combining themselves into great events which will soon require our particular attention, that we cannot too speedily enter into a consideration of the situation of our own country. The prominent point in this consideration must necessarily be the effect which is likely to result from the proceedings against the Queen. The morals, the laws, and even the religion of the country are all, more or less, implicated in these proceedings, and will undoubtedly experience, each of them, some change, from a train of circumstances, which are acting so forcibly on the opinions and habits of the people. T'ne first circumstance is certainly one of persecution, rather than prosecution ; for long before any charge of criminality was intimated to the people respecting the Queen, she was prejudged by an unknown tribunal, and the people were commanded to omit all mention of her in their prayers. This is a circumstance which must necessarily be attended with important consequences. The enemies of the Queen commenced their attack by an open violation of one of the ordinances of our religious rites. The first step of their malignity was the commission of a manifest sacrilege. The Ritual is the appointed form by which at least five eighths of the pomoves, and has his being" only in that breath which made him what lie is, and which may some day make liim an Earl; and is it possible that any one of such beings can lay his hand on his heart, and pronounce the words " upon my honour," without directing all his thoughts to the high source of " that honour?" If. there had previously been any doubt of this sentiment of expectant gratitude in the the members of that noble House, the opening of the Milan Green Bag must have ended it. Under the influence of that exalted species of gratitude, they gave the world their report npon the contents of that bag; a report which was, in form and expression, rather a verdict than an indictment. We have no room to continue at present our remarks on the consequences of this extraordinary prosecution on the morals and on the political situation of the kingdom. We leave them therefore to make room for the able speech with which Mr. Brougham has commenced the defence of her Majesty, in which we perceive with satisfaction that he has grappled closely with the evidence for the prosecution, and promised to bring proofs of the designs of his Miyesty's adversaries amounting in fact to a conspiracy carried on by the vilest intrigues aiid the most barefaced perjury. Mr. Kcan.— This celebrated actor, whose talents have so much delighted the lovers of the Drama in the three kingdoms, takes his farewell benefit at our Theatre this evening See Advt. The box promises a crowded and fashionable house; and, we doubt not, the Liverpool public will make his parting scene a memorable one. We understand he will sail for New York on Tuesday next, in the Martha, Capt. Sketchley. The clergy a r e requested to be upon their guard against the designing artifices of a genteel- looking young m a n in black, who w a i t s on t h em with forged cheeks on some of t h e London bankers, calling himsalf t h e clerk of a certain attorney, t h e executor of a deceased lady, who has left t h em small legacies. He leaves tlie check w i t h t h e clergyman, and takes f r om its amount, ill cash, the legacy duty, together w i t h the pretentend expenses of his journey f r om t h e residence of his employer. He obtains the signature of the pretended legatee to t h e regular legal and printed f o rm of discharge used in such eases, which he produces w i t h great seeming regularity and ceremony. There is every reason to believe, t h a t he has sueceded in obtaining money f r om many by these means. The cheek is not only returned unpaid; but it is presumable, t h a t the pretended attorney, or executor is a noif- encity. ADDRESSES TO THF QUEEN. The Shipwrights' deputation on arriving at Branden burgh House, formed'a solid square under the drawingroom windows in the front. Her Majesty received the address at the centre window, in the sight of the whole, from a select number of the committee, and then stood in the veranda, from whence Alderman Wood, by her , ., - , - - - • I Majesty's command, read her answer. Of this the folpulation of this country are accustomed to address the ' ij0^; ng js a n extr act • Deity. The King and Queen, personally, are named in that ritual, not surely on the plea of doing honour to either of them, ( for, in our devotions, we cannot, without presumption, pretend to do honour to any human being), but because their virtue and welfare are, through the station " to which God has called them," deeply connected with the virtue and welfare of the community. To efface one of their names is, therefore, to interrupt the habituated commuication of millions with the Deity; and if that interruption proceed from malignity, or from a spirit of human injustice, it is manifestly blasphemy, because it is carrying an evil heart into the house of God, and insulting his worship by the indulgence and instigation of malevolent thoughts. In saying this, we know that we are only repeating the sentiments of thousands of truly religious people, whose consciences are startled at this blow, directed apparently by those at the head ofthe Church, against their accustomed devotions. They know that the scripture declares that there is more joy in Heaven over one sinner that repenteth, than over ninety- nine righteous persons; and, therefore, were it possible that the Queen should be proved to be that sinner she is asserted to be, they feel that the men who have dared to attempt to shut the gates of heaven against their prayers,' must either not have that belief in the efficacy of prayer which is inculcated by thd doctrines of the Church, or else that they have had the blasphe pious audacity of endeavouring to prevent the joy of Heaven. It cannot be a safe thing for the heads of our religious system thus to insult the ordinances of the Church. Let tlic Bishops and the Archbishops, and some of our wealthy Lancashire rectors look to this. Are they ready to declare from their pulpits and their communion tables; that, as their benefices may depend upon the monarch's word, so may their religion, and the forms of prayer in the Ritual, depend upon those " inclinations" which are acknowledged not to be in the power of the monarch himself? Have they thought seriously upon the consequences of thus unmasking their motives? It is certain that, in lending themselves to this profanation of the Divine service, those motives are not only unmasked, but the mask is thrown away, never to be recovered. There is not left to them the smallest religious plea for this most irreligious omission. They have not merely admitted money changers into the House of the Lord; they have not simply converted it into a den of thieves) hut they have let it out on the sabbath, for the premature triumph of the most hateful demons that ever instigated the uncontrolablc passions ef proud, vindictive, and sensual men. The second circumstance affects that respect which the people of this country have been accustomed to pay to the aristocratic branch of our constitution. Until the fatal Green Bag from Milan was opened hy a committee of the noble House of Lords, the Peers, as a body, had Justice is a simple thing, and requires no depth of learning to be understood. Its common rules and its sacred principles may be as clearly comprehended by Shipwrights and Artizans as by the mitred Bishop or the ermined Judge.— Who does not know it to be a principle of justice that an accused person should have a fair trial, and that it is hardly consistent with the reality of a fair trial that the same persons should unite the incongruous offices of Accuser, Judge, and Jury ; should lay the charge, make the law, declare the offence, and punish the offender ? The plainest understanding may readily comprehend that this is not justice, but iniquity. Who that loves his country, who that reflects upon her great glories, upon her naval victories, and her Continental triumphs, upon the front of defiance which she has occasionally exhibited to nations ef the world ; who that reflects upon these things, will not grieve that such a country should sanction a proceeding which is so much at variance with the most simple maxims of justice, as to be universally perceptible ?. The great rule of right i s , " to do as you would be done by." This rule was never more inversely exemplified than in the conduct of my adversaries." The next address presented was from the parish of St. Katharine, near the Tower. The deputation from which arrived in twenty open barouches with four horses, the postillions in yellow satin jackets, with white hats and favours. The procession with the Address from the married Ladies and Gentleman, of the metropolis, voted at the Freemason's Tavern, consisted of 150 carriages. It arrived at Brandenburgh House at about two o'clock. One hour and a half was occupied in setting down; the room was by that time crowded almost to the doors. Her Majesty shortly made her appearance, attended by Alderman Wood, Mr. Hume, Sir R Wilson, together with I. ady A. Hamilton and the Gentlemen of the Household, whose names are so well known as not to need repetition. Her Majesty took an elevated station at the higher end of the room; she was dressed in white, the body of her robe being looped up at the shoulders, and girt round the arms witli gold lace. Her Majesty wore also a rich spangled Turkish veil, which was rolled thickly round her neck— a tiara of pure gold, studded witli small gems, surrounded her brow. She appeared in extraordinary health and spirits. Mr. Hobhouse, the whole assemblage of ladies being immediately at his back, proceeded to read the address. This being finished, her Majesty diiected Al, derman Wood to read the answer. The company were then allowed to kiss hands and retire. When they were off' the ground, the deputation from the parish of Stepney succeeded. The address, answer, and other ceremomonies, occupied the rest of the day. The road to London continued till a late hour unusually thronged with carriages and fpot passengers. We regret to state th^ t two serious accidents took place. A person of respectable appearance, endeavouring to ride behind one of the barouches, was precipitated between the wheels, and mangled in a mostshocking manner; and a boy was thrown from a horse, and his foot flanging in the stirrup, lie was dragged with velo. city among the carriages, where his head was dashed to atoms among the wheels. THE CONTINENTAL REVOLUTIONS. On Monday, a dinner, attended by at least 300 per- „ r„ j a, . v i ' i s0118 ° f respectability, was given at tlie Crown and Angenerairy preserveu tne respect wtnen seems every wnere | c h o r London, for the purpose of celebrating the to be granted to hereditary legislators.

The Baroh » livef, | Hon. Henry Grey { Jennet, Major Cartwright, Mr. foly, in great gbipd humour, iiroke'up aboluTQ'eJoefc Hume, Sir Gerard Noel, and many other distinguished persons,' entered the room, arid were mo6t' warmly greeted by the assembly. Dinner was served ; and as the doth was removing Alderman Wood arrived, and met with his accustomed reception. The first toast given was " The King;" afte/ which " The Queen, with innocence for her shield, fruth for her spear, and the affection of the people for her safeguard," was drank amid bursts of applause which shook the apartment. Sir Robert Wilson, from the Chair, then addressed the meeting. The gallant general, in an animated and impressive speech", to which, from the lateness of the hour, we are unable to do justice, commented upon the important changes which his hearers were assembled to commemorate. He deeply condemned the course which had been taken by Russia and by Austria, in refusing to acknowledge the new constitutional governments ; deprecated still more deeply the conduct of the English ministry, in wavering as to the line which they ought to pursue, and waiting, as it were, for the lead of foreign Powers; and concluded by moving a resolution and declaration in favour of the Patriots, which were unanimously agreed to. Major Cart- wright, in proposing as a toast, " The Spanish Cortes," briefly adverted to the degraded state of England, as compared with those nations which had so decidedly, yet so peacefully, emancipated themselves from oppression. A letter from his grace the Duke of Bedford was then read by the Chairman, excusing his non- attendance on the ground of ill health. A second letter, to the same effect, from Sir Francis Burdett, was also read. Mr. Bcnnct, Mr. Hume, and Sir Gerard Noel, then successively gave their toasts, and addressed the meeting. Between the speeches a variety of patriotic airs were played; and a spanish song, by Signor Itomaira, was loudly encored. Mr. Iloblwuse, after a spirited and eloquent address, proposed the health of " La Fayette, and the champions of f. cedomin France." • Mr. Alderman Wood professed, with great good humour, that he was no orator; but dedared that he was, notwithstanding, as warmly attached to freedom as any man in the country ; and concluded by proposing, as a toast, " Old England." rfheRev. Mr. Hayes, on presenting himself to the meeting, already wearied with discussion, was received with some show of impatience. His first words, however, produced a sensation almost electrical upon his hearers, " I am" said Mr. Hayes " an Irish Catholic priest. I received my education at Rome ; and having been from my infancy a sworn friend to liberty, and a determined foe to oppression. In the year 1815 I was deputed by the Catholics of Ireland to oppose at Rome that scheme of the British Government, which, by obtaining for the crown the appointment of the Irish bishops, sought to render them, like their brethren of the established church, the subservient followers of power. Such an union between church and state is as an union between Christ and Belial; it is an union which converts the priesthood to priestcraft; an union which has ever been alike in Catholic and Protestant countries— the most powerful engine of tyranny— the adamantine chain of slavery. The state draws the sword to protect the interests of its pensioned clergy; the clergy abuse their sacred influence to hold the peoplfe in political bondage: so matters proceed under such an union, until, maddened by the double tyranny,- popular indignation explodes at last, and the altar and the throne are whelmed in utter destruction. To preserve my country from such horrors, and to preserve the purity of our clergy, by keeping them dependent upon the opinion of the people, I went to Rome ; and, after a contest of two years, I baffled the intrigues of the British ministers and of the borough- mongering aristocracy, which existed among the leaders of politics at Rome", I met my reward. By the ministry of the cowardly, the treacherous, lock- picking Ompteda, and of that abject slave of the Holy Alliance, Cardinal Consalvi, I was imprisoned for two months; and afterwards, by a guard of soldiers, dragged beyond the frontiers of the Roman territory. When Napoleon, that colussus of power, who, were it fit that mankind should submit to a despot, was the only despot worthy to be endured ; when he, who like the genius of the storm, chained to a rock, with the ocean for his cage, and with monarchs for his gaolers, now looks with stern composure on the political convulsions which agitate the world : when he, at whose command nations gave way and Kings resigned their sceptres— when he was to be humbled, the trembling Sovereigns of Europe cried for help to the people. Their prayer was granted. The people, in the language of Omnipotence, said, •' Let Napoleon fall;" and Napoleon did fall. How were the people requited? Ungrateful rulers broke their promises, disappointed the hopes which they had raised; every beneficial institution of Napoleon's they abolished, every evil which had stained his course they added to the stale vices by which their own conduct already was disgraced. Ungrateful to mankind, they swore at Vienna to enslave their benefactors ; blasphemers in the face of heaven, they formed a foul conspiracy, contrary to each precept of religion or morality, and impiously termed it their " Holy Alliance." Lucifer ! thou hast heretofore arrayed thyself as an angel of light; but I defy even thee, demon, to match such infernal hypocrisy. The indig - nation of Europe was general, was universal; and never was it more strongly or more simply expressed, than in the words which I heard from an Italian peasant— " Napoleon," he said, " had his faults ; but under him the people had bread and justice; now they have neither." The Rev. Gentleman then, after a variety of observations upon the recent events, through which our limits will not permit us to follow him, declared that it was his wish, his aim, and his hope, that Catholics and Protestants might lay aside all enmity ; and that the call of the one class for reform, and the other for emancipation, might be united into one common-— one general, lrrmstable, demand.— Such an union appeared to him not only desirable, but feasible; the opposing parties had wanted but an opportunity to take each other by the hand, and that opportunity had arrived. An angel of peace had called upon them to rally together round her throne. Within three days the Catholics of London were to assemble in the same room in which he now addressed the meeting for the purpose of addressing the Queen- It was the first opportunity upon which they had come forward with their Protestant brothers. It would be, he trusted, the first step towards an union between the classes, and that union would be but a prelude to an union still more general," more extensive, which he had to propose for the approbation of the meeting. Here Mr. Hayes read from a printed paper the outlines of some plan, the nature of which we were unable fully to collect. He was interrupted by some persons at the lower end of the room; and, finding it - impossible to command general attention, concluded abruptly by pro. posing as a toast— " May those who seek freedom in religion, freedom of person, or freedom of the press, not fail to discover that, would they enjoy any of these, they mu6t first secure that whole, of which these are part*— namely, fujl fair, and free representative government." Mr Thclwull then proposed the health of their gallant Chairman, Sir Hobeu Wilson, which was received with enthusiasm. Sir Jtoberl Wilson returned thanks; jind the assem- j Portugal.— We are favoured by a most respectable mercantile house in this town with the following extract of a letter from Oporto, dated Sept. 9—" Long ere this gets to hand, you will have heard of the " P.*"- V O I . I T T I O N " that has taken place in this country ( corinachced here) which promisesa change of affairs for ::> e better— at all events, it connot be for the worse. The constitutionalists are going on uncommonly well. They have proclaimed the same king, and only want from him the convocation of their former Cortes and a Constitution, which they certainly will obtain, for it is the unanimous voice of the nation— Although this event took place on the 24th ult. here, not a life fiaS been lost, or a shot fired. Three provinces lave already declared for the new cause. We are here as quiet as if nothing of the kind had happened. British sub ects and their property are, as heretofore, respected; and from this change we have hopes, that the commerce ef the country win derive essential benefit."

In addition to the information given in the Liverpool Mercury of the 22d ult. we subjoin the following liorn the Hull Advertiser: We last week gave in substance the information communicated to us, as brought by Capt. Johnson, of the Cumbrian, nf this port, from Lancaster Sound, in Davis' Straits. At that time we had not been able to see Capt. Johnson ; but have since obtained the following particulars:— In proceeding up Lancaster Sound, about 45 or 50 miles from the entrance, Capt. J. observed on the south side a large piece of fresh water running nearly parallel to the direction of the Sound, divided from it by a ridge, apparently about thirty yards broad : and supposed by Captain J. to be supplied by water from the hills. He sent the second mate and a boat's crew towards the shore, in order to ascertain the appearance of the country, and whether there were any plants, & c. but the weather coming on thick, he called them back. Some ice bergs were found grounded in the Sound, and a good deal of floating ice, when Capt. J . first entered it; but as he advanced upwards, the quantity of ice became much less. There was a strong sir U from the N. W. and the current ran down the Sound at the rate of about four knots and upwards per hour : although Sir John' Ross found " no appearance of a current," and " no swell from the NorthWest." The Cumbrian proceeded, as nearly as Capt. J. can ascertain, about 80 miles up the Sound ; at which place the width might be from 40 to 50 miles. The land appeared to rise in a gentle slope from the water's edge for some distance, then swelled into hills of considerable htight, and many of them with craggy peaks. From the mast- head, Capt. J. saw the Sound extend apparently about 20 miles, in the direction by compass, of N. E. by N. The farthest head land on the southern side appeared to trend to the South, and the water to open in that direction. The breadth there Capt. J. thought might be about 20 miles. It may be useful to inform our readers that Sir J. Ross states that he sailed about 80 miles up Lancaster Sound ( or about as fai as Capt. J . calculates the Cumbrian proceeded); but the chart given in the official account of the voyage makes it only half that disanee; and Lieut. Parry of the Alexander, and Capt. Sabine, both fix it at 30 miles; at this extreme point of Sir J. Ress's progress, he states that he saw the land round the bottom of the Bay, at eight leagues distance. The Cumbrian, we have before said, proceeded about 80 miles, and the Sound was there perceived open about 20 miles further. We are aware of the vague nature of these computations, but, as Capt. J. is an intelligent and respectable man, it does appear beyond a doubt, that Sir J. Ross was most unfortunate in putting back at the moment he did, without any sufficient reason, v.- ben a little longer perseverance might have been attended with fortunate results. No trace of the expedition sent oiit under Capt. Parry could be found, although Capt. J. anxiously examined the whole surrounding country witli his glass, and he lias no doubt they had penetrated through the Sound, into some open sea. Indeed, if they had either met with any accident in the Sound, or been prevented from getting through it, there can be little doubt, some traces of them would have been found near its entrance, as they would undoubtedly have endeavoured to reach that point, as the one where under such circumstances they might expect to communicate most readily with their countrymen. We confidently expect, that the first news we shall now receive of them, will be from the over- land expedition, probably about the mouth of the Copper Mine River of. Hearne. It was stated last week, that the Friendship aud Truelove had been as high as lat. 80° 40' in Baffin's Bay. This is erroneous. The highest lat. we have heard ot' any vessel reaching is 78" 20' or 40'.— Ilult Advertiser. I I A V I S ' S S T R A I T S, In our Grimsby Ship- news is noticed the arrival of the Eiirl Fauconberg, Cooper, of that port, from the whale fishery, a full ship. The Master informs us, that in returning down the west side of Davis's Straits, in lat. 73° 20' N. he discovered huts on the land, which appeared to- have been lately inhabited, from the several artides found there, such as skins sewed in the neatest manner, being apparently the dress of a female; likewise the small end of a unicorn's horn, with r. hole drilled through it, and several seal skins fastened up with skewers, containing blubber; also several vessels with triangular sides, like small pig troughs, containing" '" clear oil, and a hat made of solid whalebone, in shape of a half- peck measure. From the many impressions of feet on the snow, it appeared to the crew of the Karl Fauconberg that there were many inhabitants in that part ofthe world, who probably on the approach of the vessel, fled into the interior of the country, the ground of whicli was covered with grass and full of verdure.— Lin, coin Mercury. NOISY CARTS, To the Editors of the Metcuru.- r- fhe very great asT noyance experienced by the public from the noise made by carts passing through the streets, induced me to Urn my attention to abate it if possible. Several expedients suggested themselves, but at last I had the pleasure learn that the remedy was in the power of those who complained, as upon stating the grievance, with the name and number of the cart at the Mayor's office, they might have it redressed under the following bye- law: " That the owner and owners of every cart plying for hire within the said town shall cause the side- boatds of tiie same to be well and sufficiently screwed or made fast to the body of the cart, so as to prevmt the rattling thereof, under the penalty of ten shillings for every offence." I therefore hope that our worthy Mayor will direct tn< officers to be on the alert, also to levy tie penalty, and f am sure the public will ted much obliged to you for tho publicity that will lt » d w is. « ( ii.> g accomplished. _ Yours, ( fcc.

The tavourable reception with which the first part of this History has been honoured, has encouraged the author to offer a fourth Volume to the approbation of the Public. It will comprise the reigns of Henry V I I I . and Edward V I . ; a most important and interesting portion of our history. The caprice and violence of Henry, his amours and marriages and divorces, and the steps bjr which he acquired an almost absolute power, abolishing the authority of the Pontiff, and constituting himself the Head of the English Church, are subjects which must arrest the attention of the reader. Nor are the events which chequered the short reign of his Sott and Successor, the elevation and fall of the Duke of Somerset, the rise of Dudley, and his abortive attempt to change the order of the succession, the progre| s of the Reformation and the adoption of a new liturgy, and articles of religion, less calculated to afford both interest and instruction. In composing these sheets the writer has faithfully adhered to the rule which he prescribed to himself in the composition of the preceding volumes, to take nothing upon credit, to distrust the statement of partial and interested writers, and to consult on every subject the most authentic documents within his reach. It is on this ground that he submits his work with confidence to the judgment of the public. Printed for J.

T I I E QUEEN — The Liverpool Courier says that he does not, like the Mercury, affect to know the merits of a half- finished investigation. The Mercury does no such thing; it only maintains, that bearing in mind former and more formidable charges against the Queen, which were proved to have no foundation except in " hatred, malice, and all uncharitableness;" antl further, taking into consideration the amiable disposition of the illustrious object of persecution, and not forgetting the 6atanic character of some of her perjured accusers; the Mercury, we say, with these considerations operating upon the judgment, has come to the conclusion, that the present proceedings against the Queen are, in all HUMAN PROBABILITY, of the same odious character as the persecutions to which she has been a victim for a quarter of a century. Whether she be innocent, as we believe and wish ; or be GUILTS, as in our conscience we think the Courier and his party wish, ( notwithstanding their affected moderation;) the feelings which actuate us are such as we can never blush to own; unless we should become so perverted by party- spirit, or some other demoralizing sentiment, that justice, humanity, and patriotism shall in our estimation cease to be regarded by us as cardinal virtues. Cj- The following testimony, Knbought we presume, has appeared in the Dublin Evening Post, and cannot fail to be acceptable to the advocates for fair play ; The person who filled the situation of cabin- joiner, on board the Leviathan, during the time the Princess of Wales continued on board that ship, is now in Dablir. His name is John Byrne; he is in the employment of Mr. Southwell, piano- forte maker, Marlborough- street. The following account in his own words, contains his recollections" of the conduct of the Princess during her stay on board that ship : The situation of Cabin- joiner gave me an opportunity of being well acquainted with many of the transactions that occurred in her Royal llighness's cabin, ft was part of my duty to enter the cabin in which she slept, at an early hour in the morning, to raise the blinds, and also at night to lower them. At any of those early hours that 1 so entered, I never saw M. Uergami; but in subsequent parts of tlie mornings, I have frequently seen him there, engaged generally in writing for iier Royal Highness. Her lioyal Higbness's demeanour towards all those persons whose duty brought them near her [ person, was most condescending : on several occasions she called n: e fauiliariy * her Son,' as she did several others, when she required them to perform any trifling service for her. 1 was the person who made the alterations in the cabins, which she desired at first coming on boaid, and I was the person who found and returned an elegant seal belonging to her, which was lost in the cabin, and which her Majesty will not fail to recollect, should any circumstance remind her of it. u I hare never seen or heard of the least misconduct, or of any improper familiarity attached to her Majesty, during her slay in the Leviathan ; and I am willing to prove this, and such other facts as I know to be true. — Dublin Evening Post. SLAUGHTER- HOUSES.— We have very frequently noticed the subject suggested by D.
