to the arguments opjosed to the passage of the

We have been so long accustomed to revere
the conduct of the Lord Chancellor, that we have
great pain in ohering up an unfavorable comment
upon what has this day fallen from him. In the
ower courts, the rules of which the House of
Peers have professed to adopt in the proceedings
against the Queen, it is usual for the Judge, in
. . . 1 mm. mmmw. m mm. Jh ..,).. A. A . f t
summing Uj me whiciicc, to state lairiy wnat
nas oeen sworn on ootn siacs, and to point out to
the jury the preponderating scale : always, how-
ever, taking care to tnrQW into the scale ot the
accused every favorable inference which the cir
cumstances of the case will warrant; we do not
say that the Lord Chancellor has avoided this
course, but we complain of his having declared
ins own impression ot the guilt of the Queen, be
fore he touched upon a single point of the evi
dence. We fear, also, that his summing up has
more the air of a counsel pleading for a client,
than of a judge weighing the evidence, and giv
ing to the accused, as far as justice will allow, the
holy aid of mercy, and every benefit which doubt,
or suspicion of the proofs against her, will afTord.
It is the worst compliment ever paid to the lord
chancellor, to say, as was said of him in the house
this day, It is one of the best speeches made on
that side of the question." 7 'rue Briton.
