ROMAN CATHOLIC RELIEF BILL. On the motion that the House should resolve itself into commit- tee on the Roman Catholic Relief Bill, Mr. Goring opposed the motion. If the bill were passed, it would be viewed as an insult upon the loyal Protestants of Ire- land, from whom they could look for assistance during the periods of disturbance and rebellion, which he must say had been encou- raged in that country by the truckling legislation of the noble lord (Lord John Russell). On these grounds he moved that the committee on the bill be postponed until that day fortnight. Sir H. Willoughby supported the anfendmen". ° Sir George Grey said, when they should go into committee he would readily state the course Government intended to take in re- ference to this clause. Mr, Forbes said he was opposed to the bill altogether, and lie eertaii.ly should vote,for the amendment. Mr. Sergeant Talfourd said the topi a* which we e ur..ed against the Speaker leaving the chair had already been lTlost fuirJy dis- cussed and decided upon, and it was really too bad to raise another discussion upon the principle of the bill. Mr. Newdegate contended than the principle of the measure had not been efficiently discussed, while no member of her Majesty's Government had ever yet given an explicit explanation of their views in reference to many clauses of the bill, and he insisted that those with whom he acted were perfectly justified in retarding the progress of the measure by every means in their power. Col. Conolly opposed the going into committee. The House then divided, when there appeared— -fcor going into committee 102 Agains.t it 76—26 The House then went into committee. The Attorney-General proposed a verbal amendment in one of the early clauses of the bill. Mr. Napier objected to the amendment, contending that if it was adopted, it would encourage the issuing of bulls from the Papal see, and not, as had been stated by the learned Attorney-General, act more stringently in preventing their being used. Sir G. Grey aid the amendment would have the effect of li- miting the introduction of bulls, as it was originally proposed by his learned friend the Attorney-General. Alter a fe\y .words from Mr. C. Atx&tey, Mr. Henley, Sir G. Grey, Mr. Anstey, Sir M. Willoughby, Mr. Walpole, and -Miv Newdegate, Mr. Henley moved that the Chairman do report progress and ask leave to sit again. Sir George Grey having deprecated the waste of tinie that had already taken place, The House then divided on the motion, when there appeared— tor reporting progress 106 Asainstit. 110-4 On our re-admission in the gallery, we found nd The Chairman putting the question on the amendment proposed by the Attorney-General, which, after a short discussion, the House divided upon, when there appeared— For the amendment 113 Against it 113 Mr. Bernal gave his casting vote in favour of the amendment, and the words proposed by the Attorney-General were Consequently added tö the clause. Sir R: H. Inglis put it to the House, after what had taken place, whether they would proceed further with the bi)lth;Jtday. He would move that the Chairman should report progress,, and ask leave to sit again.
