HOUSE OF LORDS.âTUESDAY. Their Lordship's met at five o'clock. LORD DERBY'S RESIGNATION. The Earl of Malmesbury rose and said It is my duty to inform your lordships that the Earl of Derby has, from failing health, felt himself obliged to tender his resignation to her Majesty, and that her Majesty had been graciously pleased to accept it. Her Majesty has also been graciously pleased to send for the Right Hon. the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and give him power to form a government, if possible. It must be a subject of great pain to all of us, on whatever side of the House we sitv when we see an eminent statesman obliged to secede from public life, and the management of public affairs, not from any of those chances and changes of political life, to which all are accustomed and cheerfully resign ourselves, but from failing health, which takes him as it were, before his time from amongst us, and deprives us of his advice and ability. If this is painful to noble lords opposite, as I know it must be, how much more so must it be to those friends who have served under him, as I have done, for so many years, and have sat by him through so many dreary years of opposition. There is one consolation, however, for us under the circumstances. Although we may regret that we should be deprived of his presence from the cause which I have described, at the same time we have the hope that the rest which he proposes to give himself will restore him to us again in greater strength, so that at all events we may have the advantage of his ability and eloquence. With respect to the course of business, it is necessary that the suspension of the Hebeas Corpus Act should receive the Royal as- sent before Sunday next. I shall, therefore propose that we take the third reading on Thursday, at two o'clock; and meet on Friday to hear the Royal assent given to the bill. No other business would be proposed this week. The House adjourned at 5.30 p.m.
