CORRUPT PRACTICES AT ELECTIONS BILL. Lord John Russell moved the second reading of this bill. Col. Sibthorp condemned the bill, as partial in its operation, and utterly inefficient. He denounced the occupants of the Treasury bench as the most incompetent, deceitful, horrible, and treacherous set that a House of Commons ever had to deal with. The lateness of the session was also a reason why, in his opinion, the bill should not now be further pressed. He concluded by moving, as an amendment, that the bill be read a second time that day six months. Mr. T. Hobhouse seconded the amendment. Mr. Bankes could not vote for the amendment. The bill now before the House was a great improvement upon that which had been withdrawn to make room for it. Mr. Anstey thought the hour too late for the House to dis- cuss so important a measure (it was then twelve), and moved the adjournment of the debate (loud and general cries of dis- sent). Lord John Russell observed that he had framed the bill with a view to its receiving as unanimous a concurrence on the part of the House as possible. Mr. Hudson would vote with Colonel Sibthorp. Mr. P. Miles supported the second reading of the bill, and after a few words from Mr. Newdegate, Mr. Anstey withdrew his motion, and attacked the Government for not having in- strutted its Solicitor-General to prosecute its Attorney-Gene- ral for certain circumstances connected with the Horsham election (hear, hear).
