LONDON OOKRi^POJNDENc fc LONDON, THURSDAY Nr<w Very few bon. members se«rnwl ,ijv for work on tho rcassemblement of il,(. of irCommons to-night after the WliMS|,m At the commencement of bu-j; the Cabinet was represented only hy Stafford Northcote and Mr. Hanly k there were hardly a score of or i members spnnkled over tho Conservativ V Liberal benchcs. The House, moreover pervaded byth?tairoflan?r ? mdtftpof?om for basineM wweh 6 it.'J\" to be orved after a boli?y. N, member was lively enongh to que-fv, til. Government on any subject whatnot the only preliininary business notices of questions, one by Sir t Watkin, the other by Dr. PlaY4. Mr. Ssndford got almost immediately u J; weigh with his motion for papers relating t. conversations between Lord 'Slilbury, I'tin, Bismarck, and the Due Decazes. This "&I simply a peg for a speech on the Easien I Question, only Mr. &tadiord'd oh?ct w? make tho Govenment show their hM? but the general feeling seemed to r", that his speech was ill-timed, all l not a single cheer was given as he sat tli)wa. 1 Mr. Bourke might fairly bave declined tosw 1 rnoro than Lord Derby recently did on titat I name subject, viz., that tho c.)Bv9r8a<io? re- ferred to were private and couSdentia!; but hs volunteered a very remarkable Latement lD regard to the Russo-Turkish struggle. I: was to the effect that the terms of would not be settled by Russia and Turku but that the Powers generally would hav» t voice in them. In other words, her Majesty', Government, we may suppose, would n/ stand by and allow Rumis to eX&rt t'.? Turkey what conditions she pleased, Tn prospect of armed intervention here op'nl up induced Lord Elcho to make a V-T bellicose speech, in which he called \I)H the Government to put our forces at <wr* upon an effective war footing, Mr. Hardy, althnugh notoriously one of,h war party in the Cabinet, snubbed him ⢠his precipitancy. He said all he felt justr- in doing at present was to use the establishment of the country as a nucleu.s iv whatever forces it might he necessary for to put into the field. With this IliA in/i. terminated, and the House, which for the time boing, had been aroused from its torpor, settled down to a quiet and uneventful nigh: of supply. Though it, is impossible to go inti hffxvy. I suppose there is no doubt that this yoirs Derby crowd was larger than any of it.* pt I deeessors. There was certainly no diminution in the number of vehicles on the road, an 11: would be an injustice to the British holiday maker to say that each conveyance was ik filled to its utmost capacity. 1, a tradition among women, according r. Dickens, that no horse is so boar.* burdened that he cannot drag one ptoses.-?* more, and this tradition seems to have b>i handed down. in the form of a creel, -4 modern Derby-goers. And besides the of conveyances drawn by quadr:i-l. being as great as ever, there wa, I new feature in the bicycles. Iri'r youths flew down to Epsom on "Ariels." were afterwards wn lounging ovor Downs dree" in blue serge suit* au;1 smoking immense pipes with an air o: no small consequetw. But if tho real was &8 crowded ever, the t,? on the railways certainly did no decline. The number of trains m by the Brighton and South Western 0ja. panies was "simply awful." Though t former deposits its passengers on th cour- J while its rival leaves its customers 'J toil through the "ile and along al dusty, uphill road, it did M have things all in its own hands. It w> ⢠more extensively patronised, however, members of the" upper ten than the S" ¡I' jI Western. The Prince of Wales was a imui in himself, and there were, besides, the Chines1 Ambassador, Prince Christian, aud Lor: Derby to be scored in favour of the Bright n Company. The Earl of Cawdor, who nev misses a Derby if he can help it, tran-oll ?,,ietly down from Waterloo with an i\: r,,]I& and a eldgl8.88, I Captain Webb, the channel s.vnn: â I jomneyed on tho same coach with 31: O'Shea, the writer of the -al, dewriptive sketch in to-day's Star. Mr. O'Shea was one of the Stand war correspondents during the Servian < paign, but he is now engxged on the E SlÅnlard, and in contributing parageâ to the Atlas" column of the World.
