tered into a history of the transactions
between the government and the
duke's ancestor, and contended that
the rights of the duke's family were
not compensated by an adeouate sum,
nor willingly alienated bv tne ownejr.
He had acquiesced witn a view to
public convenience ; but the immense
profits received by the country from)
the bargain, justified his heir in the
expectation that his claims would be
admitted. The earl appealed to tlie
lords of the privy council for tlie truth
of his statement; upon which Lord
Ellenborough rising, expressed his
astonishment at suai an appeal, de-
claring on his honour, as a nian and a
gentleman, that he knew nothing of
the proceeJing^ in tlie privy council
on the subject, after a certain period,

lur. Lord Mulgrave was
[7 in favour of the bill, aad
could not bring his mind to entertain
sodi high notions of oeconomy in the
jfiirstif sovemmetit. Advening to
lord Eilenboroueh's speech, he term-
ed hij manner boisterous and rude.
This called up Lord Eilenborough,
viio declared^ that such language was
unparliamentary^ and that he would
deaver his opinion Hredy, as an inde-
iKodent peer, in spite of such ufepar-
liamentary epithets. Lord Mulgrave
received the retort with a quotation

pons possibly can do ;*^ declared him-
sdf lo lave the highest reverence for
Lond EUenborough s official character,
but onold not endure language fit for
a demagogue in Palace^yard, but not
nited to temperate and rair discussion..

Wickham was, on account of indis-
position, permitted to speak sitting;
aad be vindicated himself and admi-
ius(ratiQn> on the subject of Todd
Jones, regretting that he could not go
mto the subject at full length, from
the lateness of the season, but declar-
ing his wish that it might be fully in-
vestigated. Mr. Wilberforce coiigra-
toiated the house, that a public officer
was alive to the necessitv of replying
to a charge so serious, as the oppression
ofa British subject. Sir W. Burroughs
gave notice of his intention to move
^solutions in favour of Sir H. Pop-
haofi: and Mr. Whitbread proceeded
to some necessary steps in the impeach-
ment of Lord Melville.

The houses were from this- time
employed in a vast variety of ordinary
business : the indemnity bill of Mr.
Tfotter gave occasion for some dis-



cussion ! the articles of impeaclunent
of Lord Melville were introduced by
Mr. Whitbread, who has the conduct-
ing of die impeachment, with a com-
mittee of twenty four other members,
and carried by him to the fiords. On

the chancellor:
" My Lords and Gentlemen —

His Majesty, to express the satisfection
with which he has observed the proofs
