[CoU TINVnD raoM eaU LAST.]
4 HE Chancellor of the Exchequer declared
A T that he should take it general view of the
quellion, that he Ihould draw his arguments from
the general result, as it impartially weighed in
his mind, neither leaning toward the profecu.
rion on one hand, or endeavouring to extenuate
the fuppofed criminal, on the other. Here the
honourable Gentleman took an opportunity to
,infure the vindi~five spirit with which the pro-
cutiun had been itftituted. The politics of
India were involved in obscurity, even upon the
very fpot; how then was it poffible for gentle-
tliemen to form a clear and difiinca idea upon eve-
ry tranfaaion, which was fo diffufe and compli-
cated ? He had, with as much attention as he
-ould poffibly appropriate from the othercon-
cerns of Government, endeavoured to inveflli-
gate the grounds of the charge now under confi-
dleration, and he had made up an opinion upon
. it, which was entirely fatisfaeory to his con-
fcience. He acknowledged the talk was arduous,
he would not (hrink from it, but boldly avow
is opinion, as an honeft man, whatever might
- the confequence.
After this exordiun, the honourable Gentle-
man proceeded to flate, that, upon the present
enquiry, there arofe two quellions.
fll. The right which Mr. Halling3 poffcffed
of calling on the Rajah for his contribution ; and,
2dly, the propriety of making it.
The fitr head of thbs qudlion naturally divided
s"eAlf into three branrhes:--
ift. The p-nalty in refuiing the flipulated
quota ;
2dly. The nature of the confllit,tion of the
Afiatic governments, by the tenure of which
Cheyt Sing held and; And,
3dly. The agreement between him and the
Company, which had been fo warmly infilled
.jaon by the right honourable mover of the
On the firit of thefe branches, it would be
prcpofterous to affect that there could exit a
government without a power to command re-
f1ources in the time of exigency. All govern-
mnents in the world, whether defpotic or limited,
muft of necclity poffefs fuch power. The hillory
*f our ow't country, under the feudal fyllem,
was a ftriking inflance of it. Without fiuch
a power indeed, no regular go ernment could
As to the second head, the conflitation of
Afiatic principalities; it appeared to him that
the land of the country, by a fort of feudal fhac-
Ule, was bound to anfwer every call which the
- klabob, Rajah, or Prince (by whatever title he
was di|linguilhed) fliould make upon the owners;
nay, it was even a qucftion in-India, whether
the Zemindar had any natural right to the foil,
or whether lie and all his under tenants were not
considered merely in the light of itewards to the
Nabob under whom they held.
He did not mention thefe circumflances, by
"*way of giving the leaft approbation of them; but
he muft reafon upon the late of India in the
situation in which it really was, and not what it
ought to be. In this view of the coanfitution,
and the tenmueon which the Rajah held, it was
evident th4t Mr. Haftings, on behalf of the In.
dia ClAmpahby might lawfully call upon him for
aflifian#, whenever yetllity required it. He
Ahen Idierted to thy third head, namely, The
Tgretiaet between Sujah Dowlali and Mr.
Haftings, on the one part, and Cheyt Sing on
the other.
Here lie entered into a variety of forcible and
ingenious arguments to Aew, that altho' by the
agreement in question, a certain annual furn was
stipulated, after payment of which the Rajah
was not to be called upon; yet this was to be
considered as a fort of peace cftablithment, and
by no means precluded Mr. Hafinagi from cal.
ling for austiary id, whn the jVclity of the

empire demanded a general exertion. In order Mr. Powys thanko God that the Mu.iAr
