That, on the Oreftes { loop of. war and her tender, together wi: h the tvvan revenue cutter, appearing in light, the fmugglers began to be alarmed about the fafety of their veflels, and in order to prevent them falling into the hands of the King's cruifers, they ran them 011 fliore, fcuttled, and { tripped them almoit of all their fails and materials. That on the arrival of the Oreftes, it was at all events determined upon to cut out and feize the two luggers, Accordingly, the feveral boats belonging to t h e Orettes and the revenue veflels, amounting to fix or feven in number, were immediately manuecl and armed, and proceeded to the fliore ; but on their approaching it, they were fired at by 1 he fmugglers from behind the faid luggers, as well as from a breaft- werk which they had raifeel for that purpofe.

That on the boats making the land, the fmugglers retreated to a houfe and { table about three or four hundred yards from, the fliore, where they kept up a conftant fire from behind the windows and doors on the revenue officers, who were fecuring the two veflels, and which they feized in fpite of their inhuman and diabolical machinations. " The lofs of the faid Mr. Allen is very much to be lamented, he being a good officer, and a young gentleman of exceeding good character, and was . tefpeCted and beloved by the whole flnp's company.

This province is, perhaps, ihe only one in the Republic, where faC. tion does not reign; every where elfe they feern in confufion." T h e Burford man of war, lately arrived from the Eaft- indies, which failed f r om England about fix years ago, with 550 men on board, has brought home no more than 7 ;. A few days lince feveral ot the inhabitants of Windtor had a meeting, and drew u p a a remonftrance, complaining of the lofs which, they iiiftained by being burthened with fuch a number © f the military which were quartered 011 them. T h e King being on one of his morning perambulations, was prcfented with the above paper by oneof the complainants ; his Majefty received it with his wonted condefcenfion, immediately opened it, and read it as he. walked. In the courfe, of three or four days, orders were given for tents for one hundred men to be fet u p in Windfur Forefl, who are to be relieved each Succeeding week by one hundred more of the regiment now 011 duty there, each man to have one finding per diem extra of his regimental pay ; their bufinefs is to repair roads, and cut new rides, for the more eafy enjoyment of the fpor't in . the hunting feafon. It is very remarkable, that of all the meetings which have been alfembled on the occafion of the taxes, there has b. en no meeting of the papermakers, printers, bookfellers, and flationers, on t h e tax which is of all others the moft iniquitous, besaufe it is a tax levelled at a commodity not f n l y already overloaded, but which o u g h t , in every free ftate, to be. held facred, and that without any probable profpeft of benefit t o the revenue. If there wa6 any idea of making this tax opera'e to the uelfare of the ftate— if it could be made to alleviate the burdens of the people, or to anfwer the exigencies of the year, there might be fome apology for t h e meafure ; but here this is not even made t h e p r e t e x t .

Report was made from, the Seleft, Committee to determine the undue eleftion for Ilchefter, in favour of. Mr. Cuft, and Mr. Hopkins, the f i t - ting members. When the order of the day was read for the Houfe to go into a Committee on the Ordnance Hill, Mr. H u f f y oppofed the Speaker's leaving the chair, wifhing the confiderat- ion might be poftponeel for fome time, as there were feveral matters on which gentlemen would wifti to make up their minds,, particularly with- regard to the neceflity of the fortifications propofed to be erefted, and the hardfliips individuals would be liable to fuffer in e r e f t i n g them. The debate which eiifued being by no medns interefting to the public, we fliall only obferve, that the principal objections Were made by L o rd • Beauchamp againft the fortifications, obferving, that it was ufual. for fucceffive Mafters of the' Ordnance to rejeft the plans of their predeceff o r s ; and by fo doing brought on the public a confiderable expence by projecting new works, and an abfolute lofs by rejecting and abandoning what was already begun. That it was naturally the policy of every new Mailer- General to propofe fonie plan on account of the patronage that followed f r om appointing to the offices of Adj u t a n t , Serjeant, See. of the works, as well as f r om other conliderations. He alfo mentioned the hardfhips of particular peifons, among others Sir John St. Aubin, who was deprived of a moft'beautiful lpot, on which he intended to ereCt a houfe ; and alfo of Mr. Cary, whofe lands were now veiled in. truftees for the ufe of the Ordnance.

Luttrell, on the ground of expediency, obferving, that every advice was taken, and the beft heads confulted by the tjoble Duke who preliclcd over t h e Ordnance : that by fortifying the places near the Dock- yards which admitted Jof fortification, the fleets of this country, in time of war, would be left to offenlive operations: that the computed expence of the works in queftion was only 500,000!. in the entire, of which 50,0001. was demanded this year ; but by enabling the Britifh fleet to aft as vvas moft conducive to the intereft and honour of this country, more than the whole of this fum would be faved in the courfe of one y e a r ; that in the prefent circumftances, we were not to reckon on a perpetual peace: the Spaniards were now actually at war: the French, from the nature of their Navy regifters, were enabled on the fhnrteft notice to equip a fleet of from 50 to 60 fhips of the line, and it was well known their pslicy was as much as polfible to reduce the Naval power of Great Britain.— The neceflity then of enabling this country to defend itfelf by means of its fortifications was obvious. T h e Houfe then went into a Committee, Mr. Gilbert in the chair, when after a variety of arguments, whether the right of adjudicating the claims and damages of individuals concerned in the lands to be appropriated to the ptirpofes of the Ordnance, fliou'. d be determined by Commiflioners or a J u r y , a which the numbers were, For the former For the latter M A R R I E D.

T h e order of the day was next read for the Houfe t o refolve itfelf into a Committee on the farther coufidefation of the bill for regulating the Eall- India Company's affairs, & c. See. Sir George Howard was called to the Chair, and the Committee proceeded to fill up the blanks in claufe 79 ; that obliging all perfons in the fervice of the Eaft- India Company, within a limited time of their return home, to deliver in upon oath before the Chief Baron of the Exchequer, duplicates of the exaft particulars of all their eftatcs, real and perfonal. This produced a . converfation of three hours, in which Mr. Eden, Mr. Jolliffe, Lord North, Lord " Millgrave, Mr. W.

Wilberforce, Lord Mahon, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer fpokc. At length the Committee divided on a motion of Sir James Johnftone, to infert the words, " and all perfons in the army and navy," after the words " United Company in I n d i a . " The numbers were, Ayes — — 39 Noes — — 1 ; o The Committee than proceeded to adjuft the claufes immediately fubfequenr ; the arguments ih Objeftion to which'were chiefly fuftained by Mr. Sheridan, Mi". Jolliffe, Sir James Erfkine, and 4 M r . Francis, who were anfwered by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr. Dundas, Lord Million, and the Attorney and Solicitor General. During the former converfation, Mr. Eden declared, he hail but little expectation'of any good being produced by a cl. nife, defigned to prevent mifco^ diift, by obliging thofe w h o . b ad been guilty of it, to declare Upon oath What they were w o r t h . Thofe whohad been guilty of peculation a/. d other crimes, would not hefitate at p e r j u r y ; ' and to obtain the truth from thdfe who had a f t f d hb'neftly and had brought their little over' wi t h t h em, ' woidiild" a n fwe r nd o t h e r end than perplexing cqnfcientious men, and expofing fHeir poverty. Mr. Eden advifetl the Committee to make tbe claufe. at leaft good fenfe, by obliging perfonis to regitter an exaft account of what they were'ivortli when they went out to India, by compdrftng which with what they fwore they were w o r t h on their ^ t u r n , it wotikl be feen how far fuf picion of improper conduct ought to reft u p o n tihem TKs Qccafibned ' taich ' conveffationi , Som? Geh'dttferi'SigblyiappVoVed it, others as ftrongly difappove^ it; Soine again thought it hard to dbligl a! l peffonS of every defcription to Swear to wlit they were worth, and" thus, as it muft h a p p a i f l mariy'ihftances, expofe their poverty. Lord l o r f h , 0.3 the, other Hand, .' though he disliked t e c'anfe, and declared he had little hopes of anyoenefit arifing from it, faid, if there was any giod to be produced by i', it muft be f r om the dptration of it being univerfal. If they were to pafs a bill that- Could 11 it be confidered other . than as ail innovation, and a very harfli meafure, let them not fritter it away by exceptions, but let it catty its full force with ir. . Mr. Atkinfin highly approved Lore}, North's argument, and mentioned two cafes that ought, he thought, to be by a fpecial claufe declared exceptions; and thofe were, when a merchant has not wound up his affairs, but hai confiderable funis yet remaining in I n d i a ; the others where a perion comes home of a fiulden merely on account of fickneifs and ill health, and means to return as foon as he gets better. The blank in claufe 86, wiiich d. cplires'' that nothing contained 111 the Bill fliSfl extend .. to compel any perfon who fh mid arrive f r om ltulia before a limited time to deliver in any fuch inventory, was filled up witli the w o i d s ' t h e f i r f l day of January, 1787. '• In defence of this date, Mr. Dundas. . faid it would give all perfons now iii India fair notice, that fuch of theiiY as chofe might flay there,, and that by not arriving in Great Britain from Ir. dia be- fore the ift of January 1787, they would become obliged to deliver in an inve'n tory of their eftates and effefts, - while others might take the other alternative, a^ d efcape that obligation. Mr . Sheridan contended, that this was an open and avowed declaration of indemnity to all peculators in India, which was a moft extraordinary mode of punifliing'riiifconduCl. Mr. Dundas replied, that the Hon. Gentleman forgot that all peculators, as well thofe now in India as thofe' that had been there, would ttill be liable to the operation of the othef part? of this Biil, though they might efcape'the delivery of inventories of their eftates arid effefts. They' would be ftibjeft to be tried by the ' neyv judicature,' and ba punilhable under that tribunal. This Mr. Sheridan declared was extremely unfair, fmce the perfons now in India went" out there ignorant that any fuch judicature wuuldbe inftitilted. The Chancellor of the Exchequer " charged Mr. Sheridan with inconfiftency in his argument, delaring that he had juft contended that the P'ill was too mild, and now he was contending that it was too harfli and oppreffive. Mr. Sheridan fliewed, -. from the preamble of claufe 79, that the regulations they vvere then confidering were ftated to be, for befter preventing," or more eafily punifhing, tHe mifcondtift of the fervants of the United Cotfipany ; he therefore infifted upon it, that he had a right to argue, that the exempting'all peifons now in India from the being obliged to deliver iii an inventory of their eftate and effefts, in cafe they arrived in England before the firft of January 1787, was a ft- ange means of pu'nifhment. The Chancellor of the Exchequer contended, that the obliging all perfons arriving" from India to deliver an inventory of their eftate aud effefts, was not a meaus of puuifhmeot, but a means of affording grounds of fufpicion of mifconduft. Mr. Sheridan faid, he had no right to be angry at the Right Hon. Gentleman's not haying, underftoodh: m, fince it was plain he did not underftand his own Bill; becaufe his argument, that obliging perfons arriving f r om India to deliver an i'nventrry of their eftate and effefts was no means of punifliment, was an argument- drawn from the preamble of the claufe mai ked feventy- . nine, which in fo many words exprefsly declared as " much. . M r , Sheridan faid farther, that its appearing that a Bill like that fell fhort of its own purpofe in owe inftance, • and, in order to attain it, over- reached all juftice in another, might prove the mc- mfiftency of the Bill itfelf ; but it was neverthelefs fair ground of objeftion to proceed upon ill bppoticioh, and as fuch he had urged it. Having now arrived at claufe 89, page 29, Mr. Jolliffc reminded the Committee, that it was ten in the evening; and as it was under flood, that a ( lay . was to be fet apart for the difadlion of that part, of the Bill which lelated to tbe new Judicature, he hoped the Right Hon, Gentleman would proceed no farther then-, but - w- culd adjourn the remainder till the next day. The clanfe they had now come to, was the claufe for re draining any of the Servants of the $ aft- In{ Jia Company, who had been employed, in India", and had returned to Great Britain, and comf • nued there for a limited " time, from again tiblding any appointment in India. " T h a t claufe'immediately preceded the claufes au horifing the inflitu ion of a new judicature for' the trial of fndia delinquents, and therefore he thought it a good part of the Bill to leave off at, andhoped the Right Hon. Gent'eman would'content to adjourn. _ > v ...... T h e Chancellor of the Exchequer rofe, and there was a cry of Go'' on ! « g. o- o n ! " fr- om many of his fuppp|" tev|.> Mr:' Pitt faid, he certainly had no idea of ^ Ccc'dfng to the honourable Gentleman's propofition, nor did lie think it at. all reafonable, fioee that day had . been fix- d on for filling up the blanks of the part of the bill which related to the new tribunal. Mr . Sheridan faid, furely the honourable Gentlemen h j d forgot the j o r t of agreement that had been entered into 3. f ew days fince, when it had been uu tier flood, that lie c'. aitfea of the bill relative to the tribunal Were to be difcufled fe parately, and a day lijt. ilbr that, purpofe- It therefore the right honourable Gentleman was determined to proceed wjth the remaining claufes of the. biU, be- certainly departed from the compaft thait had been entered into. Thz Chancellor ' of the Exchequer faid, hd had ftriftl- complied with that agree m i n t ; Iv; had t h e preceding ' day., l e f t off, where he did, bec. iufe t h e elayfe- S th"^ luwl . j h a t - a/ tetnuon' gone through, all of them had fuch immediate connection with the judicature part of the bill, that ( he would appeal to the good fenfe pf the honourable Gentle& atr) ii" He had happened to have been in the Htnile the p'rec& iiig evening, at the moment . of the. adjou. rnmeiiLj, wiiethec h. e would not hive thought ilMst a iereach o f ' the agreement in queftio. nv£> n- llifj- Pa't,. if - h^. had gone on with thoie claufes tiie'Committee'" Ijad j i i f t filled up . M r . Sheridan faid, he wduld very Sincerely anfwer the queftion; If he had happened to have been prefent at the time mentioned, he did affure the Right Hon. Ge . tleman he fliould not have confen ted to adjourn till they had gone t h r o u gh the claiifes they had filled up that afternoon, becaufe thefe claufes undoubtedly had nothing to do with the new Judicature. The Chancellor of th'e Exchequer was f u r p r i z el at this remark, declaring tbkt the claufes we'rei not only nearly and immediately connefted with the new Judicature ;, J}. ut the Hi n . Gentleman himfelf not half an hour fince, nor near fo much, had been arguing in' objeftiori t o one of them, that it was a claufe affording t h e means o f p u » nifliment. ito be inflifted o n t h o f s convifted under the new Judicature, Mr. Sheridan admitted, that the claufes they had . juft. filled up held out the means of obtaining, tbe beft evidence, and thus far led to conviction, and eonf quently to punifhment; but he denied that they bore any greater relation to the new tribunal . than to any other fpecies of jurifdiftion. The Right Honourable Gentleman, he obferyed,- had appealed to, his good fenfe ; in r e t u r n , . h e would appeal to the good fenfe ofthe Right Hon. Gentleman, and afk him, whether the clau'eS that had been filled up that day might not as, well be faid - to relate to profecutions to be carried on in the Court of King'* Bench, or before Parliament, or to any other mode or- place of profecution" ? T h e Chancellor of'the. Exchequer anfwered iti t h e negative; He alfattcimplamed of the other fide trifling w i t h the Haufe, and faid, it'was an infnlt on gentlemen to.- fee th. em Seeking delay, and thus endeavouring to put off the TSil 1 f r om day to day, - H e faid, he fuppofed the other fide of the Houfe had their eye upon an honourable Gentleman,, win, . he " believed, they all had in their thoughts, and wiflied to have him prefent at the difcuflion. If fo., why had he not been prefen. t that day,? T h e honourable Gentleman had never, he obferved, been - prefent lince the Bill came in, but for. the purpofe of delay, and it appeared as if he n- iw ftaid away, that the fame end might be anfwered by his abfence being made a pretext for ; t f a r t h e r poftponement. Mr. Jolliffc declared, he had not the Right Hon. Gentleman . alluded to in his mind at the 1 t i m e ; but he thought the abfence of another Right Hon. . Gentleman, who ufuaUy fat where lie ftood',( Mr. Eden), and of the noble Lord iii the blue ribbon, were matters that rendered the adjournment of ths other claufes particularly proper and advifeable. Mr . Hopkins faid, the Houfe had been trifled with, and its time frivoloufly wafted, by the bufinefs of this important - Bill having been put off f r om day to day, he wiflied therefore to go on ; but fo defirous was he of afting upon a fubjeft of that magnitude with candour and fairnefs, that if the Hon. Gentleman would declare any Gentlermn ferioufly wiflied it to be poftponed, he for one would cqnfent to poftpone it. [ A pretty loud cry of No ! No ! Go on / J Colonel Fitzpatrick rofe to remind the Houfe of what, had pafl'ed 0,1 Monday, rchtive to the agreement t h a t had been alluded to. He mentioned, that his honourable friend had moved j. o divide the Bill into two Bills; and that the Right Hon. Gentleman at fiift confented to this, but afterwards retrafted his conceflion. He had, however, nflu red the Honfe, t h a t he would confent to proceed, t o fill. up the claufes relative to t he new Courts of Judicature, feparately, aad on a day fingly (' elected for that purpofe. The Right Honourable Gentleman's expreffion had been, that he would not fuffer the claufes in queftion to be d fcuffed at the tall of a day's bufinefs, and he had added other words of that n a t u r e ; if therefore that agreement vvas not adhered to, he fhould conceive the Houfe " ill- treated, and it was not the Minifter's majority calling out Go on ! Go on 1 that would remove the impreffiott from his mind. Mr. Dundas rofe t o controvert thefe pofitions ; he. faid, the other fide of the Houfe had been in- - cLulged with, all they had afked for ; nay they had even been granted the nomination of their own day, and that the claufes were then to be filled up, and difcufl'ed in confequence of their having nominated that day for the. purpofe. But to what end. were they to defer the goingon with tlie elaul'cs relative to the new Judicature ? He would be fair to tell them, that they could not difenfs them" fo any ufe as they ftood in the Bill, fince in confeqhence of much confutation and reflection, a variety of amendments were to be propofed, fome claufes omitted, and others inferted, that materially changed the face of that ( part> of the Bill; infomuch, that till thofe amend- ' ments were made, and their effeft'on the Bill was feen, to attempt to debate them piecemeal as they were t o be moved, would be to work in the dark, and proceed blindly and ufelefsly. Let gentlemen wait till the amendments were moved, and when the. Bill was reported and printed with the amendments, it might then be recommitted and f a i r ly debated. . Mr. SberidanixA, undoubtedly, if the alterations went the length that had been defcribed, it would be better to receive them, and have them printed with the reft of the Biil; he, therefore, knowing as he now did, that tha amendments - were extremely material, had no objeftion to receive them ; and had he been aware of this, he would not have oppoied going 0: 1 with the Bill that flight, becaufe he could not have thought it right to oppofe a Bill not yet before t h e Houle, for fo he unii- rftrtod t h e cafe to be.

Mk . Pitt next produced an amendmen for claufe 89, which reft rains the Com" pany's fervants who have once come homeand been here long, from returning to India, and holding a place in India again under the Company. By the amendment offered by Mt^ P i t t, this claufe is totally altered ; the politive profcription of all of the Company's fervsnrs, who had been in England long, is taken away, and in the place of it, their return, after a continuance and refider. ee at home for the Space of five years, is to lie at the dilcretion of the 111ajori y of the Court of Direftors, and threefourths of tl e . G e n e u l Court of Proprietors. Mr. Francis laid, the amendment improved the Bill, but it was not the fort of claufe that he thought { hould ( land. What he had in contemplation waj, a claufe preventing the Company's fervants who were at home, from getting advanced rank on their return to India, by counti n g the yearf they had thus fpent at home. T h e Chancellor of the Exchequer faid, h e could tiot agree to the Hon. Gentleman's proposition, and it was no wonder, for it did not fet out upon t h e fame principle as the Hon.. GentIerran did. He thought the amendment propofed did eVery t h i n g that was neceffa y. Mr. Dempjlcr produced a claufe o f provifo, t h a t had been put into his hands, which was an exception of fuch of the fervants of the Company from the operation of the claufe, as had' been called home for trial. Mr. Dempfter read t h e claufe, and faid, the cafe it had in view was j h e cafe of Mr. Herbert. Mr. Dundas faid, it < yas the moft exceptionable exception that had e v e r ' b e e n offered, and gave his rjjafons for fo thinking. Mr. Demtjfer then excufed himfelf for having offered it, declaring it was no motion of Kis, but a motion tha( had been put into his hands. T h e amendment was agreed to. T h e Committee having now come to the claufe ( marked 90, in page j o of the printed Bill) which is the fiift on t h e lubjeft of the new Judicature, t o be inftituted under the authority of the Hill, the Chancellor of the Exchequer rofe and faid, as they were now arrived at thofe claufes that related folely to the new tribunal to be appointed for trying Eaft- ' ndia delinquents, and as he had a variety of amendments to offer, as well as fome new claufes to fubftirute, which would in effect amount to a material change of the Judicat u r e , as propofed in the printed Bill, it appeared t o be the molt likely means of faving the time of fhe Committee, and of giving them a c o r r e f t idea of the n t t u r e of the alterations intended, and the degree of difference they would produce, for him to ftate them all together as fhortly as he could, before the Committee proceeded to receive them in detail line by line, as t h e blanks in the claufes called for them. As t h e claufes ftood in the printed Bill, the bringing of the aceuSalion,. which had very naturally, on a former day, excited a good deal of remark and difcuffion, lay folely with his Majefty's Attorney General, or with the United C o m p a n/ Merchants trading to the Eaft Indies, to each of whom was given a power to exhibit an information in the Court of Chancery. In room of this, it was defigned to extend this power of inftituting a profecution, and to authorife any other perfon or pinions to move the Court of King's Bench for an information, which motion would neccffarily be' to be argued, and it would lis with the difcreti n of the Court to decide whether, after the grounds of the application had been fairly and fully ftated, there was a cafe made out Sufficiently ltrong t o juftify the granting an information. It was meant alfo to give the Court of King's " Bench powers to iffue eommitlions to the Courts of Juftice ih India for the purpole of taking depofitions, and collefting Such evidence upon the Spot, as would beft ierve to throw light upon the fubjeft matter of accufation. As it was undoubtedly defirable to r e f t r i f t , as much as poffible, the fort of evidence to be adduced and offered before the extraordinary Tribunal the Bill went to authorize the inllitution of, this mode of procuring depolitions in India would, he flattered himfelf, be deemed a confiderable improvement; but they were not to be the Sole Species of written evidence t o be allowed : exclulive of the affidavits that were to be exhibited, Minutes of the C o n f u t a t i o n s of the differfnt Councils in India were to be taken as evidence; nor was this any innovation, becaufe they already had on various occafions been allowed as fuch in tbe Courts below. Another material, and perhaps the molt material alteration of all was, an alteration in regard to the formation of the C o u r t or T r i - bunal, before whom the informations that would be granted ai aforefaid, were t o be trie*. I t was ft'ot intended that fuch informations Could be filed, till after t h e arrival of the depofmns f r om India; and they were not to be handetover till the whole of the evidence was colle& d that vvas capablfe of being procured, or thoight neceffary to f u p p o r t the information; then and not til! then, the Tribunal was to be chofa, and it was t o confift, as Before, of fome of the Members of the other Houfe Of Parliament, and fome of that. But the more to bring it to the rature of a Special Jury, it was intended to aspoint it partly by ballot and partly by feleftioti. Thus at the time of the ballot there fhould be put into a glafs lifts of names of the Members of both HouSes, againft twenty of which the party accuSed Should have a right of peremptory challenge. As the printed Bill ftood, it was meant that the iffue of the ballot flioula lie with the m a j o r i t y ; but, in order to give the perfon accuSed t h e fairer chance, as it was generally fuppofed that the prevailing party in that Houfe ( which prevailing party was dways prefumed to be the Adminiftration of theday, tho' in modern times they all knew that had not been the cafe) had the majority at will, it was intended that not merely lifts of the majority with forty names fliouil be deemed etefted, b u t t h a - each lift- which co ltai ed as many as twenty names lhonjd ftand good. It was meant further to give theproleeutor a right to challenge, hilt not peremptorily, only a right t o challenge for caufe 1 After thefe lifts c, f 40 and 20 were colltfted, they were to be fent to the Judges, and by t h em kept, until juft immediately before the Commilfion appointing ihe Court fhould be ready to iffue from the Coint of Chancery, when the. fhould be put into the ballorting glafs before the Judges of ihe Several Courts, and fix names fhould then be choten out of the lifts by ballot. As a Surther alteration, it was thouglrt proper t o take away the right* of nominating the fudges from the Crown, and to leave it to each Court to appoint one of its own bench to fit and alillt at the trial. T h e r e would alfo be claufes declaring perfons of a certain defcription ineligible upon the C o u r t , fuch as Direftors of the Eaft- India Comp. iny, perfons who had been in India, and every other d fcription of men, that could poSlibly be SuppoSed to have any bias or prejudice upon their minds at all likely to affeft t h e im partiality and juftice of their opinions and decifipns. Mr, Pitt ftated o her regulations calculated to render the new tribunal as unobjefttionable as in the nature of things it could be made, and informed the Commiite., that fince he had firft opened the outline of it, a great many meetings had been held for the pnrpofe of confidering it maturely, and endeavouring to find ffteh modification's, r e f l a t i o n s , and rules, as fhould be moft likely to add to its improvement, and to fecure it as a medium of the distribution of juftice, unmixed with prejudice, and free f r om abul'e of every kind whatsoever. Having Subftantially ftated what the amendments he intended to propofe amounted to, and defcribed the effeft they were likely to produce, he proceeded to move them one by one, as the Committee arrived at the different parts of the remaining claufes of the Bill in which they were to be introduced. Mr. Sheridan faid, what the Right Hon. Gentleman had fuggefted, certainly went a considerable way towards removing the objeftions, that he had entertained again!! the Court of Judicature, which the printed Bill held forth, as the Tribunal that was to be ififtituted ; it was however impoffible for him on the firft hearing of alterations fo various and fo material, to lay how far they were all of them improvements or not ; hut as the Report of the Bill when it came out of the Committee was to be printed, with the amendments, he IhouUI then be the better able to judge, and to give his op'tiion upon the fubjeft of the new tribunal as it would then Hand. Mr. 3 I f l l i f f e alfo admitted that the amendments that had been ftated by the Right Hon. Gentleman, rriade the latter part of the Bill, which related to the New Judicature, lefs exceptionable than it was in the form in which it flood in the printed copy.
