THE Lord Chancellor did put their Lordships in
mind, where they left Yesterday, and why so early this
Day they assembled; and moved their Lordships now to
advise, what shall be the Effect and Course of their Conference this Morning with the Committees of the Lower
Priests, Recusants, &c.
It was hereupon Agreed and Ordered, That the House
shall be adjourned; and then their Lordships to confer
of the Business, as in a Committee.
In which Committee it was moved, That, whereas
the Commons desired His Majesty to declare himself,
for the Execution of the Laws against Jesuits, Seminary
Priests, and Popish Recusants, by Proclamation, whether
it should not seem fit to add these Words to the Word
"Proclamation," ("or otherwise"); which, after the
House was re-assumed, was put to the Question, and was
over-ruled to add the Words ("or otherwise"); yet, with
Resolution, That, if the House of Commons did not admit of those Words, they would join in Petition with
The Prince his Highness, and the Lords Committees,
having met with the Committees of the Lower House,
the Lord Chancellor reported, very exactly and judicially,
the Course and Proceeding at this Conference; the Effect whereof was, That the Committees appointed for
the Commons were not willing to enlarge themselves
any Way; and that this Question had this Morning
been moved amongst themselves, and agreed, That nothing formerly agreed on should receive any Manner of
Alteration of Matter of Form.
Earl of Berkshire and Lord Scrope.
The Lord Chancellor shewed to the Court, that lately
this Morning a Jarr happened between Two Noble
Persons, Members of this House, namely the Earl of
Berkshire and the Lord Scrope, in this Manner; that the
one, in this House and Court, did forcibly thrust the
other, against the Dignity and Honour of the House.
Hereupon both the said Lords, namely the Earl of
Berkeshire and the Lord Scrope, being called, and standing at the Bar to answer the Misdemeanour aforesaid;
and after it appeared by Proof, and not denied by the
Earl of Barkshire, that he the said Earl did, within the
Court, near unto the Bar, overtaking the Lord Scrope,
violently thrust him; both the said Lords, as well the
Earl of Barkshire as the Lord Scrope, were directed to
withdraw themselves into several Rooms, until the
House might take Consideration of the Matter, and
thereupon call for them: Which being done, the Earl
of Berkshire was again brought to the Bar; and to his
Lordship, being on his Knees, the Lord Chancellor declared, that the House had taken Consideration of his
Fault; which they found to be very great, in that his
Lordship, being a Peer, who therefore should be tender
of the Privileges of the House, had, in the House, and
in the Presence of the Prince his Highness, offered Force
to a Member of the same House.
Earl of Berkshire committed to the Fleet.
The Censure therefore was, That his Lordship should
be committed close Prisoner to The Fleet, until the
House shall take further Order in the Cause.
Afterwards, Order was given, that the Gentleman
Usher of this House should attend, and bring the
said Earl to The Fleet; his Lordship to be, at his own
Motion and Suit, permitted to repair first, so attended
as aforesaid, to his own Lodging, but disarmed, and
Afterwards the Lord Scrope was called for, and
brought into the House, and then presently was willed
to go to his Place and Seat; to whom, there standing
uncovered, the Lord Chancellor declared, That the
Lords had considered of the Nature of the Fault,
wherewith he standeth charged, and findeth him not
worthy of Blame for any Fault of Commission, but
rather of Omission, in that he complained not to the
House; but that otherwise he had carried himself temperately; and, therefore, it was the House's Pleasure he
should take his Place.
