therefore Find, That the whole Election of Magistrates and Council of the Burgh of Dundee for the said Year was illegal, null and void, and decern and declare accordingly: Find the Complainers entitled to Expences, and allow an Account to be given in; when lodged, remit the same to the Auditor of Court to be taxed and reported on in common Form:" That the usual Order was made upon the Respondents to answer the said Appeal, and Recognizance to answer Costs entered into in common Form on behalf of the Appellants: That subsequent to the presenting of the said Appeal, and before it was necessary by their Lordships Standing Orders for the Appellants to lodge their printed Case, the Parties to the said Appeal had come to an Understanding on the Subject-Matter thereof, by which it was agreed that the Judgment of the Court of Session should be acquiesced in, the Appeal withdrawn, and a Petition presented to His Majesty The King in Council, praying for a new Sett or Constitution for the said Burgh, which had been disfranchised by the Judgment above referred to: That in pursuance of this Agreement a Meeting was held at Dundee, on the 8th May last, of the Members of the Magistrates and Town Council of Dundee, who were elected at the Michaelmas preceding, (there being present of the said Appellants at that Meeting the said Thomas Bell, John Calman, John Blair Miller, Patrick Anderson, Peter Thomson, James Brown, David Blair, Alexander Balfour, James Thomson, George Rough junior, David Miln, John Sturrock and James Smith, and the said Thomas Bell being Præses,) at which it was resolved to withdraw the said Appeal, and obtain a new Sett, as appears from the following Extract of the Minutes of that Meeting:-"The Præses stated, that he had called this Meeting in consequence of his having received a Letter from Mr. Kerr, the Town Clerk, who is now in London, requesting Instructions as to the further Prosecution of the Appeal which has been entered, in Name of the Members of this Meeting and of the other Members of the Town Council, to the House of Lords, against the Judgment pronounced by the Court of Session in the Petition and Complaint at the Instance of Alexander Kay and John Morton against the Magistrates and Town Council; and he laid Mr. Kerr's Letter before the Meeting: At this Time Mr. James Smith Murraygate came into the Meeting: Mr. Kerr's Letter was read, and considered: Thereafter Mr. Balfour moved, that as much Inconvenience is experienced in the Management of the Affairs of the Burgh, from want of the Co-operation of a regular Magistracy, it would tend to the Advantage of the Community if the Regulation of the Affairs of the Burgh was placed in the Hands of a regular Magistracy and Council, without Delay: That with that View it is expedient that the foresaid Appeal should be withdrawn, and that Application should be immediately made to His Majesty to sanction the Appointment of Magistrates and Council for this Burgh:" The Minute then directs, that, for the Purpose of expediting this Measure, Mr. Anderson and Mr. Calman should proceed to London, and there, in conjunction with the Town Clerk, to do what they could to obtain a liberal Sett or Constitution for the Burgh, suitable to the Times; which Motion was carried unanimously; and Mr. Anderson and Mr. Calman, being present, agreed to proceed to London, and act according to the Wishes of this Meeting: The Præses was requested to submit to the Managers Copy of this Minute, and to request their Concurrence in the Measure: The Minute then concludes in these Words:-"The Meeting instructed the Clerk to intimate to the Town's Agent and Solicitors the Resolutions which this Meeting have come to, and to withdraw the Appeal:" That in pursuance of the above Minute the same was submitted to the Interim Managers, who had been, subsequent to the Date of the said Judgment, appointed by the Court of Session to take charge of the Affairs of the Burgh pending the Disfranchisement, who approved of the Course resolved to be followed in regard to the said Appeal, as appears from the following Extract from the Minutes of their Meeting:-" At a Meeting of the Managers for the Burgh of Dundee, held at Dundee upon the 8th Day of May 1830, sederunt- Thomas Bell, John Blair Miller, John Calman, James Thomson; Mr. Bell, Præses: The Minutes of the Meeting of the Managers held on the 6th Instant were read: Mr. Bell laid before the Meeting the Minutes of a Meeting of the Gentlemen who composed the Magistracy and Town Council of Dundee at Michaelmas last, which was held this Day: The Minutes were read and considered by the Meeting: The Meeting unanimously approved of the Proceedings of those Gentlemen as recorded in said Minutes, and declared their hearty Concurrence in all the Resolutions which are therein expressed; and, in so far as the Managers are interested therein, the Meeting resolved and agreed, and hereby resolve and agree, in Terms of the Resolutions contained in the said Minute in all respects: The Meeting ordered that a Copy of the said Minute be appended to this Meeting: The Meeting authorized the Factor for the Managers to pay to Mr. Anderson and Mr. Calman Fifty Pounds towards the Expences of their Journey to London, in Terms of the Resolutions contained in the Minutes now submitted to this Meeting:" That Instructions were accordingly given by the Agent for the Burgh in Dundee to Messrs Stevenson and Yule, W. S. Edinburgh, who had conducted the Suit in the Court of Session on behalf of the Magistrates, to get the said Appeal withdrawn; and these Gentlemen, on the 10th of May, wrote to Messrs Richardson and Connell, the Solicitors in London on behalf of the Appellants in the said Appeal, instructing them to withdraw the same from their Lordships House: That, in pursuance of these Instructions, Communings took place between Messrs Richardson and Connell and Messrs Moncreiff, Webster and Thomson, who acted for the Solicitors for the Respondents in the said Appeal, at which it was agreed, as the least expensive Mode of disposing of the said Appeal, that the Appellants should not lodge their printed Case within the Time limited by their Lordships Standing Orders, whereby the said Appeal would, in Terms thereof, stand dismissed their Lordships House: That the Appellants Case was accordingly not lodged, and the Appeal, as a matter of course, stood, and now stands, dismissed their Lordships House: That; in further pursuance of the said Agreement, Messrs Anderson and Calman, who had been deputed by the said Minute to act on behalf of the Appellants and the disfranchised Magistrates, proceeded to London, and in conjunction with Mr. Christopher Kerr, the Town Clerk of the Burgh, held Communings with the said William Hackney, William Lindsay and Mr. Gabriel Miller, Writer in Dundee, who had been deputed by the Public Bodies and Inhabitants of Dundee (Mr. Miller being also Agent in Dundee for the Respondents) to attend to their Interest in the new Sett to be obtained for the Burgh, at which the Principles on which the same should be sought were finally settled, and a Petition to His Majesty in Council agreed to be presented, praying that His Majesty would be gracionsly pleased to grant the same: That, in Terms of this Arrangement, a Petition to The King in Council was adjusted by the Parties above named, and being signed, upon the 24th June last, by the following Persons; "Thomas Bell, Provost; James Soot, Bailie; John Blair Miller, Bailie; William Hackney, Dean of Guild; Patrick Whiston, Old Bailie and Councillor; George Thoms, Old Bailie and Councillor; Patrick Anderson, Treasurer; Alexander Balfour, Councillor; John Sturrock, Shoremaster; David Miln, Councillor; Alexander Meldrum Councillor; James Smith, Councillor; James Thomson, Convener; George Rough junior, Councillor; David Blair, Councillor ;" this Petition was immediately thereafter presented to His Majesty, and referred in the usual Form to the Consideration of the Law Officers of the Crown, with whom the same at present rests: That this Petition states "that the Effect of this Judgment (the Judgment of the Court of Session above referred to) is, that all the Petitioners who were elected to be Magistrates and Councillors are deprived of their Offices, and the Burgh must continue without any Magistrates and Councillors until Your Majesty shall be pleased to grant Your Royal Warrant authorizing an Election: That in these Circumstances, Application is made to Your Majesty for a Warrant authorizing the Appointment of a Magistracy and Council: That a strong Desire has been expressed by the Guildry, the Nine Incorporated Trades, and other Corporations, and also by a great Number of the Inhabitants of the Burgh, that the Political Constitution of the Burgh should be altered, so as to render it more consonant to the Feelings and Habits of modern Times: And Your Petitioners do most cordially concur in praying that Your Majesty will be graciously pleased, in the Exercise of Your Royal Prerogative, to sanction the desired Change: That Your Petitioners do not presume to state what ought to be the Political Constitution of the Burgh; but they desire humbly to submit, that the general Welfare of the Burgh would best be promoted by the Establishment of such a System as shall appear to Your Majesty most likely to remove all reasonable Cause for Distrust, and to promote, as far as is possible, a Community of Feeling and cordial Co-operation in all Public Measures between the Magistrates and Council, and all Classes of that Community over whom they are placed: That Your Petitioners desire further to state, that, in consequence of there being no Magistrates or Council, the Interests of the Burgh and its Inhabitants are materially injured; all the Judicial Procedure, Civil and Criminal, which depended on the Burgh Courts, being necessarily stopped, and all the Improvements and Public Works of the Burgh being also suspended, thereby causing both Inconvenience and great pecuniary Loss; the Managers having no Judicial Function, nor any Powers in regard to the Burghal Property or Works, except as Interim Curators for protecting the Burghal Rights and Interest during the Non-existence of the Magistrates and Council:" The Petition prays, "That in these Circumstances your Petitioners humbly pray that Your Majesty, in Your Paternal Care of this Your ancient Burgh, will be graciously pleased to consider the State in which it has unfortunately become placed, and that You will issue Your Royal Warrant granting a new Sett or Political Constitution for the Burgh, with Rules for the Election of the Magistrates and Members of the Council thereof, such as shall appear to Your Majesty, in Your Wisdom, most suitable for the general Welfare:" That notwithstanding of these various and conclusive Acts of Acquiescence on the Part of the Appellants, and the distinct Agreement of Parties, the Petitioner is informed that it is the Intention of the Parties Appellant in the said Appeal to present a new Appeal to their Lordships, for the Purpose of forwarding the Views of the Candidate who opposed the Petitioner at the late Election of a Member to serve in Parliament for the District of Burghs in which the said Burgh of Dundee is included, pretending that the Dismissal of the Appeal in the Manner above stated, by not lodging their Case, reserves to them the Right of presenting a new Appeal within the Period to which the Right of Appeal is limited by the Statute and Standing Order; but the Petitioner takes leave humbly to apply to their Lordships, in the confident Hope that they will not permit the Forms of their Lordships House to be perverted from the legitimate Objects for which they were originally intended, vizt. the equitable Regulation of the Rights of Suitors, to assist and protect a mere electioneering Manouvre: The Petitioner offers to prove to their Lordships, in the most satisfactory Manner, the Facts before stated, and moreover, that a distinct Pledge has been given that the said Appeal shall not be brought to a Hearing, but that the Object being served, of enabling the Candidate whom the Appellants favour to state in the Committee who are to try the Return, that the Decision of the Court of Session is still sub judice, (a Fact which they hope to prove by the Circumstance of the Appeal having been received by their Lordships,) the Appeal will, after the Trial of the Election, be allowed to drop, and the Agreement of Acquiescence be fulfilled: In order to shew to their Lordships that the Proceedings on the Part of the Appellants are purely for electioneering Purposes, the Petitioner begs to submit the following Copy of a Minute of a Meeting held at Dundee on the 13th July 1830; vizt. "At a Meeting of the Interim Managers for the Burgh of Dundee, and of the Members of the late Magistracy and Council of the Burgh, held within the Town Hall on Tuesday the 13th Day of July 1830, Thomas Bell Esquire, late Chief Magistrate, and at present One of the Managers, in the Chair, Mr. Anderson moved, Mr. Calman seconded, the Motion, and the Meeting unanimously resolved, First, That looking to the approaching Dissolution of Parliament, this Meeting feels great Regret that Dundee is at present without Magistrates and Council, and this Burgh will in all probability have no Vote in the Election of its Representatives: Second, That, from the Experience this Burgh has had of the Attention of The Honorable J. S. Wortley to the Public Interests of the District, and from his known Political Principles and Qualifications for Public Business, it is the Opinion of this Meeting that Mr. Wortley would be a most desirable Representative: Third, That Mr. Bell, the late Chief Magistrate, be requested to communicate these Resolutions to Mr. Wortley, and to transmit a Copy to the Chief Magistrate of each of the other Members of the District:" These Resolutions were communicated by Mr. Bell, the Chairman, to the Provosts of the other Burghs, accompanied by the following Letter: - "Council Chambers, Dundee, 13th July 1830: Sir, I have the Honor of sending to you enclosed a Copy of Resolutions adopted this Day at a Meeting of the Managers for this Burgh, and the Gentlemen who composed the late Magistracy and Council of Dundee. I have the Honor to be, &c. (signed) Thomas Bell:" And with the same View the Petitioner has to state, that no Step was taken nor any Hint given of the Existence of any Right of Appeal, until after the 9th of August last, when, from the Vote which that Day passed in the Town Council of the Burgh of Forfar, it was evident that Mr. Wortley, to whom the Appellants had thus committed themselves, would be the unsuccessful Candidate unless a Vote could be reared up on the Part of Dundee: That the Petitioner, though not a Party to the Appeal, has presumed to apply to their Lordships for Relief in the Premises, as, from the Position in which he is placed with reference to the Political Existence of the Burgh of Dundee, he has a clear Interest in supporting the Judgment of the Court of Session, and trusts that their Lordships will be pleased to grant him that Relief:" and therefore praying, "That their Lordships will not receive the said Appeal; and, if necessary, allow the Petitioner to be heard by his Counsel or Agents in the Matter, or grant such other Relief as to their Lordships may seem meet:"

It is Ordered, That the said Petition be referred to the Committee appointed to consider of the Causes in which Prints of the Appellants and Respondents Cases, now depending in this House in Matters of Appeals and Writs of Error, have not been delivered, pursuant to the Standing Orders of this House.
