HOUSE OF LORDS.—Tiitr:si>AY. Their Lordship's met at THE BALLOT. Lord DERBY presented several petitions from Con- servative associations, praying their lordships to adhere to their amendments on the Ballot Bill. THE ACROBATS' BILL. Lord BUCKHURST moved the second reading of the Acrobats' Bill, the object of which is to prevent the em- ployment of children under sixteen years of age in acro- batic performances dangerous to life or injurious to Earl MORLEY opposed the Bill, which he considered to be an attempt at over-legislation. They could correct the public taste by Act of Parliament. TbG Earl of SHAFTESBURY said s stop ought to be put to the dangerous performances carried on up and down the country. The training of the children was a disgusting and cruel process, and; often had astonishing effects. He remembered a boy in one of his ragged- schools who was so affected by the training that he had to be allowed certain intervals in his lessons so that he mirrht run into a corner and stand on his head for several minutes. (Laughter.) More surprising still the boy's head seemed quite turned. (Much laughter.) Lord ROMILLY supported the Bill, which was then read a second time. WITHDRAWAL OF CHURCH BENEFICES BILL. The Bishop of CARLISLE moved the third reading of the Trusts of Benefices and Churches Bill. Lord CAIRNS pointed out the extreme inconvenience of passing the Bill at present, and after a few words from Lord HARROWBY, who had given notice of his in- tention to move the rejection of the Bill. The Bishop of CARLISLE withdrew the Bill, with the consent of the House. The Boundaries of Counties (Ireland) Bill was read a second time. The House adjourned at a quarter after six o'clock.
