The House of Commons met on Thursday after the Whitsuntide recess, and a number of notices were given and questions asked. Sir E. Watkin gave notice of calling the attention of the Attorney General to the statement made by the Lord Chief Justice during the hearing of the case of Twycross v. Grant as to practices prevailing on the Stock Exchange. Mr. Sandford called attention to the fact that in Blue Book No. 2 on Turkey there was no mention of the con. versation botween Lord Salisbury and the Due Decazes at Paris, and between Lord Salisbury and Prince Bismarck at Berlin as to the proceedings at the conference at Con- stantinople. In reply, Mr. Bourke said that the conversations were of a strictly confi- dential character. He also said that he knew of no communications from the Russian Govern- ment as to the localisation of the war that had been declined by her Majesty's Government. After some discussion, the motion for the minutes of the conversation was withdrawn. Petitions against opening museums on Sun- days were presented from Newport by Mr. Cordes, &nd from Swansea by Mr. Dillwyn, who also presented petitions against the Bill to amend the Medical Act of 1858, and ugainst the Burials Acts Consolidation Bill. Some 400 delegates, representing 100 Liberal Associations, met at Birmingham on Thursday morning, when it vas res lived to form a National Federation of Liberal A ssociatione, under the presidency of Mr. Chamberlain. Mr. Gladstone, who arrived in the town in the afternoon, was enthusiasti- cally received. It is estimated that 30,000 persons were present in the Bingley Hall in the evening, when, after a resolution had been proposed declaring that Turkey had no claim on English support, the right honourable gentleman addressed the meeting. Mr. Bradlaugh was on Thursday informed, in the Court of Queen's Bench, that the case against him for publishing, jointly with Mrs. Besant, an alleged indecent book, would be tried on the 18th inst.
