HOUSE OF LORDS, FRIDAY, JULY 21. The Earl of Glengall brought forward a motion of which he had given notice, for copies of reports from stipendiary magis- trates, constabulary officers, and police, respecting the forma- tion of clubs in Ireland and the noble earl proceeded to give an account of the alarming extent to which a traitorous organ- ization exists throughout Ireland, in alliance with committees in Paris and in the United States, for the subversion of the power of the British Crown. His lordship concluded with ex- pressing his high satisfaction at the intimation given that her! Majesty's Government: intended to arm the Lord Lieutenant with additional powers. The Marquess of Lansdowne acknowledged the facts to be incontrovertible, and said that all the elements of civil war were already prepared, nothing being wanting but an open declaration of it. Under these circumstances, any loss of time would be loss of power and the measure called for was one which would go at once to strike at the leaders. The noble marquess explained the nature of the bill which would'be brought before the other House for this purpose. Lords Brougham and Stanley expressed their high satisfac- tion at the announcement, regretting that it had not been made sooner, and promised the Government their cordial support and assistance in expediting the passing of the bill. The Earl of Glengall, at the suggestion of the noble mar- quess, withdrew his motion and, after some routine business, their lordships adjourned, at a little before eight, till Saturday. There was a remarkably full attendance of Peers on this oc- casion.
