“House of Lords, 29th August, 5 o’clock.

“Here’s a capital scene such as I never saw before. Always keep in mind the point in discussion—viz. whether Brougham should have a little cross-examination now, and an unlimited one hereafter. This was conceded to him early on Saturday—refused yesterday, and to-day Harrowby begins by moving that, under the peculiar circumstances, Brougham shall have an unlimited cross-examination both now and hereafter. This motion was opposed by Lord Eldon, and a division has just taken place, when Harrowby’s motion was carried by 121 to 106. The three law lords—Eldon, Redesdale, and Manners—the two Royal Dukes—York and Clarence—and all the King’s friends were in the minority, and Sidmouth was the only other member of the Cabinet besides Eldon who voted against Harrowby’s motion. Our people of course voted with Harrowby. Was there ever such a state of things?. . .”
