E. of St. Albans Privilege.

Upon the humble Petition of Richard Symes, an Attorney at Law, and Henry Ryde, now in the Custody of the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod attending this House, for arresting William Wetton Gentleman, an Agent and Servant of the Earl of St. Alban, a Peer of this Realm, contrary to the Privilege of Parliament; in which Petition, they acknowledged their Sorrow for their said Offence, and humbly begged Pardon of this House for the same:

Simes and Ride released.

It is thereupon ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the said William Wetton be forthwith discharged from being under any Bail by reason of the said Arrest; and that the said Richard Symes and Henry Ryde be likewise discharged from their present Restraint for the said Offence, paying their Fees: And this shall be a sufficient Warrant on that Behalf.

Judges Report concerning the Canary Company Patent.

The Lord Chief Justice of the King's Bench reported to this Effect:

"That, according to their Lordships Order made Yesterday, the Judges have read over the Charter granted to the Spanish Merchants, dated 31° die Maii, 3° Jacobi; and the present Patent granted to the Canary Company; and also the Statute in 3° Jacobi, Cap. 6, for Enlargement of Trade; and they find in the said Statute, the Words to be, "The Dominions of Spaine," and not "The Dominions of the King of Spain." He further said (his Brethren being of the same Opinion), That a Place may be Part of the Dominion of the King of Spaine that is not Part of the Dominion of Spaine, as Scotland is Part of the Dominion of the King of England, yet no Part of the Dominion of England; and that there may be Islands and other Places of the Dominion of Spain which yet are not within the Continent of Spain; as the Isle of Man, though not Part of the Continent of England, is Part of the Dominion of England: But whether The Canary Islands be Part of the Dominion of Spaine, it being a Matter of Fact, they conceive it not proper for them to give any Opinion therein."

Adjourn.
