IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. In the HOUSE OF LORDS, June 26, the Sea Fisheries Bill and the Criminal Law Amendment (Protection of Young Girls) Bill passed through Committee. Marriage WITH A DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER BILL. On the report of amendments in the Marriage with a Deceased Wife's Sister Bill, several amendments were pro- posed by Lord Dalhousie, who has charge of the Bill. The Principal one was in the retrospective clause. His amend- ment in it was the insertion of words declaring that any with a deceased wife's sister, celebrated or con- tacted before the passing of the Bill, should be deemed to have been legally celebrated or contracted on the day of the Passing of the Bill, so that the children of such marriages celebrated or contracted before the passing of the Bill should be deemed legitimate. This was opposed by Earl Fortescue so far as the legalisa tton of previous marriages was concerned, but, after some discussion, was agreed to. An amendment moved by Lord Fortescue to leave out Clause 4, with the object of giving the clergy the option of refusing to perform marriage between a man and his do. ceased wife's sister was rejected without a division, and the repert was then received. The Lords Alcester and Wolseley Grant Bills were read a •bird time and passed; and several other Bills having been advanced a stage, their lordships adjourned at nine o'clock. In the HOUSE OF COMMONS, Mr. S. C. Buxton took his seat Peterborough in the room of Mr. Whalley, resigned. Mr. Gladstone, in reply to Mr Broadhurst, said that the question whether Parliament should revert to the old prac. tice meeting late in the autumn, taking a long holiday at Christmas and proroguing in June, was one for the consider- ation of members of both Houses, but especially of those of ™o House of Commons. It would be the duty of the Govern- ment to follow any definite indication which might be given the subject, provided they were fully satisfied that the •esire of the House would be in favour of change. Mr. Broadhurst thereupon gave notice that he would «ke the earliest opportunity of calling attention to the itubject. B Mr. Goshen brought up, amid cheers, the report of the Standing Committee on Trade, Shipping, and Manufactures on the Bankruptcy Bill. THE CORRUPT PRACTICES BILL.

On Clause 6, which declares certain classes of expenditure JJ9'be illegal, Mr. H. Fowler moved to omit the words pro- hibiting payments for hiring carriages or horses for the con- veyance of electors to or l om he poll, but after three tours' discussion this was w idrawn. Lord G. Hamilton next m )ved an amendment restricting the case of boroughs the prohibition or the hiring of con- veyances tor taking voters to the poll, but this was opposed w 105 md on a division was negatived by 200 The clause was still under discussion when progress was "Ported. tinP10 ConiPanies (Colonial Registers) Bill was read a second gne, and the other orders having been disposed the "OUae adjourned at ten minutes to one o'clock.
