Lord Brougham objected to the bill being further proceeded with this session, as, without its aid, the law could be administered until next session and during the recess and next session they would have more time to consider the new powers which this bill proposed. The Bishop of London took the opportunity to pass a warm eulogium on Mr. Chadwick, and hoped he would not be allowed to go unrewarded. The Earl of Ellenborough coincided with the prelate's remarks.

Lord Campbell then moved the commital of the Muscle Fishery (Scotland) Bill. Lord Brougham protested against the principle of af- fording protection to so inferior a species of fish as the muscle, but did not consider it necessary to take the sense of the house upon it. Lord Campbell assured his noble and learned friend, that lightly as he esteemed this species of fish, muscle beds constituted very valuable property in some parts of Scotland, and that in the city of St. Andrew's the corpo- ration derived a considerable revenue from them. It was therefore highly necessary to afford them the pro- tection now proposed. The bill then went through committee, and was re- ported. The Holyhead Harbour Bill was read a third time and passed. The New Zealand (No. 2) Bill was read a second time. After some conversation across the table, which was inaudible in the gallery, The Public Works and Drainage (Ireland) Bill was read a second time.
