THE OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. Parliament opened yesterday. The Queen's Speech, read by the Lord Chancellor, referred to the progress of the Russo-Turkish war, and to the negotiations which are now going on with the view to peace. The conditions on which England's neutrality were founded had as yet not been in- fringed by either belligerent, but Her Majesty could not conceal from herself that, should hostil- ities be prolonged, some unexpected occurrence might render it incumbent upon this country to adopt measures of precaution, which could not be taken without adequate preparation. She trusted to the liberality of Parliament to supply the means which might be required for this purpose. The Speech made brief reference to the Indian famine, and the disturbances in the Transvaal, and enu- merated the various Bills which will be introduced during the Session.
