We are happy to notice that Sir R. Collier intends,

if Mr. Walpole will not pardon Toomar, to move an address to the Crown on his behalf. Mr. Walpole will of course argue that the House of Commons ought not to become a Court of Caseation, but the argument is worthless. What rights has the Howe if it may not inform the Crown of wrong done to a subject, and what wrong can be greater than that which was done to Toomer ? Because he committed a sin he was punished for a crime which he did not commit, and punished, too, with exceptional severity. A scoundrel was sentenced on Wednesday for rapes on two little children to ten years' penal servitude, While Toomer had fifteen years for fornication.
