Seite 339 - Will you to the utmost of your power maintain the laws of God, the true profession of the gospel, and the Protestant reformed religion established by the law? And will you preserve unto the bishops and clergy of this realm, and to the churches committed to their charge, all such rights and privileges as by law do or shall appertain unto them, or any of them? King or queen: All this I promise to do.
Seite 429 - I pretend, after the best consideration I have been able to give to the subject, to hold an opinion far from doubt.
Seite 84 - ... any wish to shrink from inquiry, but would only be deemed to afford a renewed proof of the desire which her majesty has been graciously pleased to express, to submit her own wishes to the authority of parliament...
Seite 411 - His Majesty leaves no effort unexhausted to awaken the Spanish Government to the dangerous consequences of this apparent connivance. " His Majesty makes this communication to the House of Commons with the full and entire confidence, that his faithful Commons will afford to His Majesty their cordial concurrence and support in maintaining the faith of treaties, and in securing against foreign hostility the safety and independence of the kingdom of Portugal, the oldest ally of Great Britain.
Seite 97 - ... to my enemies, even this secret tribunal acquitted me of all crime, and thereby pronounced my principal accusers to have been guilty of the grossest perjury. But it was now (after the trial was over) discovered that the nature of the tribunal was such as to render false swearing before it not legally criminal.
Seite 101 - Against this I protest, and upon the following grounds. The injustice of refusing me a clear and distinct charge, of refusing me the names of the witnesses, of refusing me the names of the places where the alleged acts have been committed ; these are sufficiently flagrant and revolting ; but it is against the constitution of the court itself that I particularly object, and against that I most solemnly protest.
Seite 376 - That this House is anxious for the accomplishment of this purpose, at the earliest period that shall be compatible with the well-being of the slaves themselves, with the safety of the colonies, and with a fair and equitable consideration of the interests of private property.
Seite 102 - ... the decision. That your Majesty's ministers would advise these measures, if found necessary to render their prosecution successful, there can be very little doubt, seeing that they have hitherto stopped at nothing, however unjust or odious. To regard such a body as a court of justice would be to calumniate that sacred name ; and for me to suppress an...
Seite 155 - Walmer, the King has never forgiven your opposition to his wishes in the case of Mr. Sumner. This feeling has influenced every action of his life in relation to his government from that moment ; and I believe to more than one of us he avowed that his objection to Mr. Canning was that his accession to the government was peculiarly desirable to you. Nothing can be more unjust, or more unfair, than this feeling ; and as there is not one of your colleagues who did not highly approve of what you did respecting...
Seite 99 - ... faithful, and brave people, your Royal Father would have perished at the head of that people. When to calumniate, revile, and betray me, became the sure path to honour and riches, it would have been strange indeed if calumniators, revilers, and traitors, had not abounded. Your Court became much less a scene of polished manners and refined intercourse than of low intrigue and scurrility. — Spies, Bacchanalian tale-bearers, and foul conspirators, swarmed in those places which had before been...
