Sir Walter Earle deli- vered a proviso, for the letters of áIlMt;¡nbl'Î'i>M Parliament to go free, during their sitting. Sir Heusage Finch it was a poor mendicant, proviso, and below the honout of th« liotise." Mr. Prynn spoke also "against the proviso, Mr. Bunckb-y, Mr. Roscawen, Sir U" Downing, and. Serjeant Charlton for it; the latter saving the Council's (Vtters went free. The 'qn^stfon being cnileu for. the Speaker, Sir Uarbottie Hrhttstome. was unwilling tq put it, saying he was-ashamed of neverttieless, the proviso was carried, and made part; of the bill, which was ordered to be engrossed." The Lords subsequentty. disagreed to this proviso, and it was ultimately thrown out., At a subsequent period, however, -bpth Houses ,did not feel it to be "below th't'ir honour" to secure for theu.selves this exemption frdm post- age.

DK FACTO AM, DF. JnuE.-Louis Xl. of Franco was remarkable for the very low rate he estima- ted every man's life, in his dominions, except his own; and among It variety of instances related by historians of the day. in which this disre- gard was carried on fo an access alpiost ludi- Oi-oug. one; of the niost extravagant is the storv of the Prior of St. Cosilio." 'in the earlv part Of Louis's reign; this Priest, Who was" a favour ite of the King, and a man of great sanctity, undertook a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in the execution of which he was made a prisoner, and carried as a slave into Barbary. Twelve years after—either escaping, or by some other-means cotnpa,ssing his freedom—after being lonf ac- counted dead, he found his way I)a(-k, to France: but, in the interim, it"turned o"iit that a new Prior, one of the Kind's Chaptains, had been appointed to his monastery. The case was one rather of nicety. The original Prior en- treated to he restored to his place; and this (at first) the King promised should be done. But there were difficulties in the way. The new incumbent, in his turn, .wjis a sort of favourite. Delays arose; and the claimant, mercilessly peti- tioned seven times a week, until, at length, Louis; tired of importunity, and seduced, as he was apt to be. to the readiest niode of accommodating such a irialter, desired Tristan tf, rhl liim of the Prior of St. Cosmo." Now Tristan being a mail of few words, merely bowed his obe- dience to his intimation and, being also a per- [ son of rather literal understanding, he never dreamed, when he .heard a Prior" mentioned, of any body but the officer who actually kept the keys as such, and received the revenues 4 there- fore, briefly, he betook to of St. Cosmo.; aud mautjre the prayers of the mi- | St»rable superior, carried his orders coolly into execution; On the next stay, when the King held ■ his Icyee,; the late traveller inlJurbary, quite un- j conscious of what he had escaped, appeared wflh the hundred and eleventh petition. The ivnig was surprised, for he thought all demands had been satisfied in full the night .before. ""How is this," said he. privately, beckoning to Tris- tan,"who was present — Did I not tell you to rid me of the Prior of St. Cosmo ?" The Prior, my your Majesty mean this man?" whispered tho Provost, with soine little hesita- tion. Why whom else should I Ilwan. sir- mh 7" returned the monarch. Did I not speak of him;" I understood your Majesty to mean the other Prior—-he was hanged last night at eight o'clock." The King paused for a moment; the error probably had been invo- luntarV —" ft is soon remedied, iilv l^iege," said the Minister of Justiae. '• [ will take off this Prior to night iilso. But Lous, though.Cruel, never desired blood farther than was necessary to his own safety or Ai the mistake has occurred," ho replied, "■ and eaimbt be helped; the man had some right on his side, let hila take the benefit of it. Let him be restored to his place," conti- nued the monarch, "and, gossip, keep your own Counsel; fortune has done wet! for him. and we- will'not .oppose her. It was necessary that, in some way,. I should be freed from his im- portunities; hut we shall accomplish that now I in this way, as easily as we could do it in the other."
