Bill for assigning Exchequer Orders.
The Lord Ashley reported, "That the Committee
have considered the Bill for assigning Orders in the
Exchequer without Revocation, wherein there are
some small Alterations."
Which were read Twice; but not agreed to, because
the House was of Opinion there needed none.

Message to H. C. that the Lords have passed it, and L. Townshend's Bill; and with the Trial of Peers Bill.
A Message was sent to the House of Commons, by Sir
Will Childe and Sir Moundiford Brampston, consisting of
1. To deliver to them the Bill for the better regulating the Trial of the Peers of England; and to desire
the Concurrence of the House of Commons therein.
2. To acquaint them, that the Lords have passed the
Bill for assigning Orders in the Exchequer without Revocation; and also have passed the Bill for Confirmation of an Exchange of certain Lands between Horatio
Lord Townsend and the Rector of East and West Rainham, in the County of Norff.
Report of the Conference concerning the Lord Message about the E. of Claredon.
Next, the Lord Ashley reported the Effect of the
Conference Yesterday with the House of Commons, as
"It was delivered by Sir Robert Howard, That the
House of Commons are ever prepared with all Readiness to wait on their Lordships in any Conference
shall be desired: But this Conference is not so Parliamentary in the Method of Proceedings.
"The House of Commons first sent up their Desires
to have the Earl of Clarendon sequestered and committed.
"The Lords in the next Place delivered their Vote
of not complying, at a Conference.
"Then the House of Commons, at a Second Conference, delivered their Reasons to induce the House
of Lords to agree. Their Lordships Message being for
a present Conference, and not a Free Conference,
gave them Cause to conceive that the Lords did not
agree on their Reasons. If so, the House of Commons looked upon it that it should have been a Free
Conference, that so the Lords might have given their
Reasons. This was the Reason of their desiring this
Conference, to acquaint their Lordships, that this
Manner of Proceeding is not Parliamentary; for so
the House of Commons should be debarred from a
"The next Gentleman that spoke at this Conference,
was Mr. Vaughan; who said, That this is Business of
very great Importance; not so much as to the Personal
Concern of the Earl of Clarendon, as to the Consequence in the general Proceedings of Parliament, and
the Precedent of it: That the House of Commons did
expect a Free Conference; for otherwise the House
of Commons think themselves precluded for ever
having a Free Conference."
Conference not to be asked by H. C. when previously desired by the Lords on the same Subject.
After a long and serious Debate of this Conference,
it was generally Agreed and Resolved, That the House
of Commons not granting a Conference desired by the
Lords; and desiring a Conference of the Lords upon
their Lordships Message for a Conference, is contrary
to the Method of Proceedings between the Two Houses.
And, upon a further Debate, it is Agreed and Resolved, That, in desiring the last Conference with the
House of Commons, the Lords have proceeded in a
Heads for a Conference about it.
Then the House appointed these Lords following to
draw up Reasons upon these Two Votes, to be offered to
the House of Commons at a Conference, and to present
the same to this House To-morrow Morning:
Their Lordships, or any Three.
Bolton and Cockaine to be attached, for beating the D. of Cumberland's Footmen.
Upon Complaint made to this House, "That Nathaniell Bolt and William Cockaine, Carmen, did this
Day beat and wound the Footmen attending the Sedan of the Duke of Cumberland, in his Highness'
Passage through Kingstreet to the Parliament:"
It is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal
in Parliament assembled, That the Serjeant at Arms
attending this House, or his Deputy, shall forthwith
attach the Bodies of the said Nathaniell Bolt and William
Cockaine, and bring them in safe Custody to the Bar of
this House, to answer their said Offences: And this shall
be a sufficient Warrant on that Behalf.
