THE PEERS AND THE FRANCHISE BILL. The division which was taken in the House of Lords at an early hour on Wednesday morning upon Earl Cairn's amendment to the second reading of the Franchise Bill, was one of the largest of recent years, 351 peers taking part in it. The House nominally consists of 518 members, of whom four are peers of the blood Royal, and who, therefore, take no part in political divisions, and of the remainder a great number are only on the rarest occasions seen in the House. In the minority of 146 which sup- ported the second reading of the bill were two archbishops and the following ten bishops: Bath and Wells, Carlisle, Chichester, Durham, Ely, Exeter, Manchester, Oxford, St. Asaph, and Winchester. The only prelate who voted in the majority of 205 against the second reading was the Bishop of Gloucester and Bristol; while the following bishops were absent from the division: London, Nor- wich, Bangor, Worcester, St. Albans, Hereford, Peter- borough, Lincoln, Salisbury, St. David's, Rochester, Lichfield, and Liverpool. Five Conservative peers were in the minority, viz., the Duke of Norfolk, the Earl of Jersey, the Earl of Leitrim, Lord Erskine, and Lord Haldon, while the following peers, who usually sit upon the cross benches, were in the same lobby, the Duke of Marlborough, the Earl of Wemyss, Lord Bramwell, the Earl of Fingall, and Lord 18tratheden and Campbell. Lord Tertnyson, who recorded his vote in the House for the first time since his creation as a peer, was in the minority, as were also the Duke of Somerset, Earl Fitzwilliam, the Earl Fortescue, the Lord Houghton, and other independent Liberal peers. In the majority were six Liberal peers, the Marquis of Cianricarde, the Earl of Gosford, Lord De Freyne, Lord Fitzhardinge, Lord Lyveden, and Lord Mowbray. Lord Denman, Lord Stanley of Alderley, and Lord Brabourne represented the cross-benches in the same lobby; while among the independent Conser- vative peers in the majority were the Earl of Abing- don, Lord Boston, Lord Byron, the Earl of Hopetoun, Lord Poltimore, and Lord Mostyn.
