HOUSE OF LORDS. MONDAY, JULY 8. Tie Lords met at five o'clock. The Lotteries Bill was read a first time. The Duke of Richmond moved the. second reading of the Drainage of Estates Bill, which, after a short discussion, was agreed to. The report on the Wuger. and Gaming Bill was brought up. On the motion of the Marquess of Clanricarde, the followiog addition to the standing orders was, after a short conversation, agreed to.—"That the directors appointed shall continue in office until the first ordinary meeting to be held after the passing of thii act; and at such meeting the shareholders present, per- sonallyor by proxy, may either continue in office the directors appointed by this act, or any member of them, or may elect a new body 01 directors, or directors to supply the place of those continued in office, the directors appointed by this act being eligibl: as members of such new body." The Brazilian Slave Trade Bill was read a second time on the motioi of the Earl of Aberdeen, as was the Dog Stealing Bill on the mction of the Duke of Beaufort. Lorl Brougham moved the second reading of the Criminal Justic; Bill. The object of the bill was to secure the more speedy trial of prisoners. He wished for the appointment of two additicnal Judges. In the intervals between the circuits they might transact the Chambers business, and he should wish it transacted in publie. The Duke of Richmond hoped that the expense, which this measun would entail upon the counties, would be defrayed out of tbe Consolidated Fund. Lord Campbell approved of tbe principal of the bill, but thought it was so deficient in the details that it had better be postponed. He would lecommend a Commission to consider the subject, nd thought it advisable that in circuit business there should be an interchange of Judges between England and Ireland. The Lord Chancellor should feel it his duty to recommend the appointment of a commission to consider the subject. Lord Denman objected to the postponment of the bill, which was intented to remedy an immediate and crying evil; also to the appoinment of another commission. After a lew words from Lord Brougham and the Lord Chan. cellor, the bill was read a second lime. The other bills on the table were forwarded a stage, and their Lordships adjourned.
