HOUSE OF LORDS. Their Lordships met at four o'clock. BANK OF IRELAND CHARTER BILL. The Bank of Ireland Charter Bill was read a second time, on the motion of the Earl of MEATH. MISCELLANEOUS. The Irish Church Act Amendment Bill and the Public Parks' Ireland Rill passed through committee. The Earl of MALMESBURY called the attention of the Government to the unsatisfactory manner in which the Act for regulating traffic in the Metropolis, was enforced in consequence of the limits of the supervision, authorised by the Act not having been sufficiently extended. He complained of the nuisance caused to foot passengers by the unloading of coals, etc., on foot pavements of certain streets, like Baker- street and Oxford-street, in which there- was considerable traffic, and suggested that those thoroughfares should be added to the list in reference to which the powers of the Act were exercised. The Earl of MORLEY said that the Act referred to was applied to the principal thoroughfares, and others were added from time to time, as occasion arose. The noble Earl's complaint should have due consideration. THE IRISH MILITIA. The Earl of LIMERICK moved for returns showing the numbers of Irish militia present at the last training, and the number on the roll of each regiment, on the 1st of March last, and enrolled in the militia reserve on the same day. After a few remarks from the Earl of LONGFORD, who pointed out that there were, fortunately, in Ireland, a good many workhouses without tenants, which might be used as military barracks, Lord NORTHBROOK stated there was no objection to the production of the returns and that lie was glad to mention that the result of the training last year was very satisfactory, the number of recruits being fully as large as was anticipated, while this year it was believed that the force would be brought up to the full establishment re- quired. With regard to the empty workhouses, they had already been utilised to a great extent, and the Govern- ment would continue to take advantage of them in the future. After some remarks from the Marquis of CLANRICARDE, the motion was agreed to, and the House adjourned at five minutes to six o'clock.
