PARLIAMENT. WH have not many mighty works to report this week as proceeding from Parliament. Everything makes slow pro- gress- Of the West India question we have spoken else- where. The Health of Towns Bill has at last dragged its leno-tli along the House of Commons, and has been sent up to tlie Lords. It is supposed, however, that it will prove so unwieldy in operation as to make it almost useless. Several discussions have taken place for issuing writs to the con- stituencies which have been deprived of members for bribery at the last election. None, however, has been fortunate enough to succeed with the exception of Cheltenham, the writ for which was carried in a very thin house on Wednes- day. The opposition to the West. India measure is strength- ening. We verily believe that the cry of West India dis- tress in its present form is one of the greatest shams ever imposed upon the country. From an explanation given by Lord Palmerston, it appears that the Spanish ambassttdor has been dismissed by the orders of this government as a kind- of retaliation for the dismissal of Mr. Bulwer from Madrid. It is said, however, that Government has no fur- ther steps in contemplation. We do not believe so, and we would advise our readers to hold themselves in preparation to give any warlike movement on the part of ministers their most determined opposition. We fear there is no meanness or hypocrisy of which Government will not be guilty.
