On Monday morning the case was again brought before the court, when Mr. Coleridge, (after a con- ference with Mr. Hawkins), said There is one matter in connection with the settlement of this case which must have the sanction of your lordship. (The terms agreed to between the parties were then handed up.) The Lord Chief Justice (having read the document): You both wish it?—Mr. Hawkins Yes, I desire it. The Lord Chief Justice: I would rather you named some one yourself, but if you prefer it I will name a gentleman. Mr. Coleridge: We both prefer that your lordship should name the party. Mr. Hawkins: of oourse it is impossible for your lordship to do so at this moment. The Lord Chief Justice: Ko, it is necessary before I do that I should communicate with the party. Mr. Hawkins: Before this ease closes, I wish to say a word on behalf of Lord Willoughby D'Eresby. My friend's case has been opened to the Jury and the plaintiff has been examined. Now I need hardly say that Lord Willoughby would not have defended this case if he had not taken a different view of it to that which has been presented by the plaintiff. His lordship has never been unwilling to make an allowance to the Countess sufficient for her future main- tenance, but the terms have been so large which the Countess and her friends aske4, that it was impossible for the noble defendant to accede to them. The case, however, is now terminated, Lord Willoughby having done that which from the first, it appeared to me, he should have done—viz., to refer it to some gentleman of honour to say what as a matter of honour and regardless of law should be done between the parties. Lord Willoughby's case has not been presented to the jury. I have abstained from saying one syllable disrespectful of the lady. I have only endeavoured to conduct the case in accordance with my instructions. The Lord Chief Justice: The termination is satisfactory; I only wish it had been done sooner. The parties then withdrew, having first signed the terms of reference.
