POLITICAL ITEMS. The Prime Minister was, with a brief interval for dinner, in the House of Commons on Monday-Tuesday for eleven houis. He was punc- tually in his place on Tuesday afternoon at half- past four, having left the house at four o'clock the same morning. Lord Redesdale has fixed next Thursday for the secoi-d reading of his bill introducing a new religious test in both Houses of Parliament. It is, nev rth.I^ss, understood that there id no serious intention on the p.;rt of any one beyond the noble lord to proceed with the measure. It is stated that a protest is shortly to be made in the House of Commons against the partiality shown from the chair to the supporters of the Government in debate and that a motion is to be mide declaring that in future a strong political partisan should cut be appointed either Speaker or Chairman of Oommittees. The attitude of tha Irish Party in respect of the Cloture is extrenely simple. They will oppose it, without, however, indulging in obstruc- tion, and will endeavour to bring up all absent members to the divisions. Aided by those moder- ate Irish members who on ordinary questions sup- port the Geverument, but who hold views favour- able to the freedom of debate, they hope to muster about thirty votes in all. The Daily News nndorstands that some of the electors of Northampton contemplate taking up the case of Mr Bradlaugh in a somewhat novel fashion. One consideration is the expediency of applying for a mandamus to compel him to perform his Parliamentary duties. It is believed that such an application has never been made in a court of law, and therefore the point raised ia entirely a new one. The electors of Northampton also propose to apply to the House of Commons to be heard at the bar by counsel The precedent for this is the case of the Middlesex electors, who were heard at the bar of the house in support of John Wilkes's claim to tke his seat. Mr Bradlaugh was in the H use of Com- mons on Tuesday night during the question hour. He claims the right which, though anomalous, is not disputed, of sitting with his hat on in presence of the Speaker. No other person, not being a member of the house, exercises this privilege.
