“24th.—. . . The vote of last night produces the greatest sensation in the town to-day; and I must confess we have used our victory with no great moderation. St. James Street and Pall Mall have been paraded by the Opposition for three or four hours in numerous divisions, all overflowing with jokes, as well at the expense of the Ministers as of the Gentleman at the end of the Mall, and of the satisfaction he will derive from the address when Perceval carries it to him at Windsor.

“Another event of great importance has taken place this morning. Perry, of the Morning Chronicle, has been tried in the King’s Bench for a libel contained in his paper some time past upon the King and his reign. Perry defended himself against a very vindictive speech of Gibbs’s, and the jury declared him Not Guilty in less than 2 minutes. So the Press is safe: at least as yet.”
