low-water mark of the National Assemblies or Provisional Con- ventions of other countries. The hon. member concluded (amidst loud cheers) by maintaining the necessity of a system of well- organised party as essential to our constitutional form of Govern- ment. Lord J. Russell could not discover against what accusations the hon. member defended the House. The Government had certainly not charged the House with being the cause of preventing the progress of public business. The House—that is, forty-nine fiftieths of the members—were the complaining parties and though they were willing to allow the greatest latitude to fair discussion, they had reason in thinking that some speeches of the other fraction might be well spared (hear). Legislatioll was not the sole, nor even the principal duty of the Government; it was a modern idea to think so; and in the days of Walpole, Chatham, and even Pitt, there were few legislative measures introduced and e rried by the Government. The principal function of the Go- vernment, especially when there was sedition in England, inci- pient rebellion in Ireland, and revolution on the continent, was the alininistration of the affairs of the empire and when he could say that sedition had been Iquelled, a rebellion in Ireland put down' the institutions of the country preserved f: m the revolutions of the continent, and the general peace maintained, he thought that lie might boast on the part of the Government, that the adminis- tration of the empire had been successful (cheers). To preserve our institutions and to maintain peace would be the great objects of this administration i and he trusted that whoever might succeed them in office would have to defend, not to restore, the constitu- tional institutions of Great Britain. The noble lord made some excuses for the four budgets and other legislative failures com- mented on by Mr. Disraeli, and congratulated himself on the prospect of getting the royal assent to 105 bills out of 125 bills submitted by Ministers to Parliament. He also paid a compli- ment to the energies, talents, and eloquence of Lord G. Bentinck, Mr. Disraeli, Mr. Herries, and other members who act with them, and advised them to constitute themselves into a compact party, assuring them that, provided they give up the idea of restoring the principle of protective duties, they would obtain great influence with the country (hear, hear). After a few remarks from Mr. Hume, Mr. B. Osborne, and Mr. Hudson, the bill was read a third time and passed. The House at four suspended its sitting to six.
THE LOAN. The Chancellor of the Exchequer stated (in reply to Mr. Hud- son) that he d'd not intend to negotiate the proposed loan at all, bUt to sell stock in small quantities from time to time, as the mar- ket might suit, spreading the sale over as large a period as possi- ble his object being especially to guard against any disturbance of the money market.
CROPS IN IRELAND.
CROPS IN IRELAND. Lord J. Russell (in reply to Mr. Hudson and Sir C. Burrell) stated that the accounts of the state of the Irish crops, received trough the Poor Law Commissioners and the constabulary, were too conflicting to rely on but the late accounts describe the appearance of the crops as being more favourable than before, and the quantity sown this year was, as compared with the last year, as 8 to 5. as. Divers bills were then passed or forwarded without any division taking place, except on the Copper Ores Duties Bill, on which the House went into committee, and Mr. Henley moved, as an amend- ment. that the duty of 21s. per ton be levied on copper ore and legulus imported from foreign countries. The committee divided- For the amendment 19 Against it 43-24 The House adjourned at half-past nine.

MONETARY SYSTEM.—SALARIES. Mr. Muntz gave notice that lie would next session move a r solution to the effect that, as the Legislature had fully deter- mined to carry out the monetary system, which would speedily reduce the value of all property to the level of '95, it was only r equisite and expedient that the salaries of all officers and » >rvants of the Government, which were raised upon the war system, should be reduced to their original amount. The Exchequer Bills Bill and the Consolidated Fund Bill were read a third time and passed.
RAJA OF S ATTAR A.
RAJA OF S ATTAR A. Mr. G, Thompson brought the case of the Raja of Sattara before the House. He concluded by moving, that in the opinion of this House, it is required by justice and good faith, that the property of the late Raja should be transferred to Iha1100 Maharaj, the adopted son of his late Highness, or wompensation to be made in lieu thereof. Mr. Hume seconded the motion. Sir J. Hobhouse defended the course that had been pursued by him on this subject, and appealed to the House whether the matter had not been fully and fairly discussed, and the decision of the House of Commons and the India Board taken with respect to it after great deliberation. After some observations from Mr. Hume and Sir H. Wil- loughby, Mr. G. Thompson shortly replied,"and withdrew his motion. The House adjourned at half-past six.

HOUSE OF LORDS, TUESDAY, SEPT. 5. NORTH WALES RAILWAY. Lord Monteagle moved that the messengers who had been di- rected to summon Mr. W. Chadwick, the chairman, and Mr. John Manner, the secretary of the North Wales railway company, to attend their lordships should be called to the bar. The messengers having been called to the bar, stated, in answer to questions from the Lord Chancellor, Lord Camphell, the Earl oi Minto, and Lord Monteagle, that they had called last night at the respective residences of Mr. W. Chadwick and of Mr. J. Mariner, and had been told that both gentlemen were out of town, and consequently they had been unable to make personal service -of the summonses. Lord Monteagie believed that as no personal service had been ef- fected, it would not be legal to order that these persons be taken into custody. He would therefore move that William.Chadwick and John Mariner be ordered to attend at the bar of their lordships' House on the first Monday after the commencement of the next session arid he intended to follow that up by moving for the pro- duction of all documents and accounts relating to the affairs of the North Wales railway company. LOfel Campbell supported the motion. He believed these per- sons were purposely absenting themselves. The method proposed to be adopted by his noble friend to enforce their attendatice was slow but sire. He would support the motion. The motion was then agreed to.
PROROGATION OF PARLIAMENT.
PROROGATION OF PARLIAMENT. Her Majesty prorogued Parliament this day in person, The imposing royal cortege, with all the attendant pomp and splendour, left Buckingham Palace about half-past twelve o'clock, and wound its way, at the usual stately pace, through t-he avenues leading from the Palace to the Horse Guards, and from thence down Whitehall, through Parliament-street, to tko'Palace at Westminster, the day being unusually fine, and the weather salubrious, though hot, a vast number of persons congregated aloii- 7 the entire route. Her Majesty w is cheered in a most enthusiastic I loyal manner by the multitude of her subjects who uwaiteci the approach of ivie procession. After entering the House, the Commons were summoned, when..the Speaker delivered his annual address, enumerating, sl'e measures that had b e i passed during the session. Hex Majesty then read the following speech :— My Lords and Gentlemen, I am happy to release you from the duties of a laborious and protracted session. The Act for the Prevention of Crime and Outrage in Ire- land, which received my assent at the commencement of the session, was attended by the most beneficial effects. The open display of arms intended for criminal purposes was checked: the course of justice was no longer interrupted, and several atrocious murderers, who had spread terror through the country, were apprehended, tried, and convicted. The distress in Ireland, consequent upon successive failures i:i the production of food, has been mitigated by the application of the Law for the Relief of the Poor, and by the amount of cha- ritable contributions raised-in other parts of the United King- dom. "On the other hand, organized confederacies took advantage of the existing pressure, to excite my suffering subjects to re- bellion. Hopes of plunder and confiscation were held out to tempt thtj distressed; while the most visionary prospects were exhi- bited to the ambitious. In this conjuncture I applied to your loyalty and wisdom for increased powers and strengthened by your prompt concurrence, my Government was enabled to defeat in a few days machinations which had been prepared during many months. The energy and decision shown by the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland in this emergency deserve my warmest approbation. "In the midst of these difficulties you have continued your labours for the improvement of the laws. The Act for facili- tating the Sale of Incumbered Estates, will, I trust, gradually remove an evil of great magnitude in the social state of Ireland. The system of perpetual Entails of Land established in Scot- land, produced very serious evils both to heirs of entail and to the community, and I have had great satisfaction in seeinw it amended upon principles which have long been found to ope- rate beneficially in this part of the United Kingdom. I have given my cordial assent to the measures which have in view the improvement of the public health, and I entertain "n earnest hope that a foundation has been laid for continued advances in this beneficial work. Gentlemen of the House of Commons, I have to thank you for the readiness with which you have granted the supplies necessary for the public service. "I shall avail myself of every opportunity which the exigen- cies of the State may allow for enforcing economy. illy Lords and Gentlemen, I have renewed in a formal manner my diplomatic relations 'with the Government of France. The good understanding be- tween the two countries has continued without the slightes interruption. "Events of deep importance have disturbed the internal tranquillity of many of the States of Europe, both in the north and in the south. These events have led to hostilities between neighbouring countries. I am employing my good offices, in concert with other friendly Powers, to bring to an amicable settlement these differences; and I trust that our efforts may be successful. I am rejoiced to think that an increasing sense of the value of peace encourages the hope that the nations of Europe may continue in the enjoyment of its blessings. Amidst these convulsions, I have had the satisfaction of being able to preserve peace for my own dominions, and to z5 maintain our domestic tranquillity. The strength of our insti- tutions has been tried and has not been found wanting. I have studied to preserve the people committed to my charge in the enjoyment of that temperate freedom which they so justly value. My people, on their side, feel too sensibly the advantages of order and security to allow the promoters of pillage and con- fusion any chance of success in their wicked designs. "I acknowledge with grateful feelings the many marks of loyalty and attachment which I have received from all classes of my people. It is my earnest hope that by cultivating re- spect to the law and obedience to the precepts of religion, the liberties of this people may, by the blessing of the Almighty God, be perpetuated." Parliament was then prorogued to the 2nd of November. After the reading of the speech, her Majesty left the House in the usual manner. The Commons returned to their own House, and after the speech had been read by the Speaker, the members dispersed.
MONEY MARKET. WEDNESDAY EVENING. The English Funds are exceedingly dull this morning, and the arrangements for the settlement continue to exercise a depressing influence upon the market. Consols have been 85 to 864 for Transfer, and 854 to 86 for Account. The New Three-and-a- Quarter per Cents, have been 86 to 87. Exchequer-bills are 28s. to 31s. premium. Bank stock is firm at 196. The foreign stock market presents a mere blank. Spanish Three per Cents, are 23J; Dutch Two-and-a-Half per Cents, have been 44s, and the Four per Cents. 71. All the rest are nominal. Mexi- can about 164 to 17. Portuguese Four per Cents. 21 to 23, and Brazilian 13 to 75. Railway Shares were worse this morning than even for some time past, and there are no buyers coming forward. The list shows a depreciation, but for which we really do not meet with any men of practical experience who can give a satisfactory explanation. The market probably is in the hands of a few persons, owing to the number out of towii.-Sitn.

LONDON CORN EXCHANGE.
LONDON CORN EXCHANGE. MONDAY, SEPT 4.—The condition of the new wheats fromEssex and Kent, which were in good supply this morning, was still very dauip and inferior, and the weather since Friday having been our market was extremely dull, and 3s. to 4s. cheaper for old, and as. to 6s. for new, since Monday last. The millers reduced the price of flour 2s. to 3s. per sack. Barley and malts were 2s. cheaper. New peas, both white and grey, were more plentiful, and offering 2s. to 3s. under last week's prices.

Selected quali- ties were mostly held at full prices, but the out-of-condition parcels of new were quite Is. per quarter lower without effecting a clear- ance. Upwards of 11,000 quarters of foreign wheat have come in since Saturday. ,VV'

LIVERPOOL CORN EXCHANGE. TUESDAY, SEPT. 5.—At this day's market there was a fair attendance of dealers, but the great decline in Mark-lane caused them to purchase very cautiously and only in retail quantities for immediate use. The value of all kinds of old British and foreign free wheat was depressed 6d., and bonded and new Irish fully 8d. per 70 lb. on prices of this day week. The demand for oats was not lively, but fine old Irish mealing realised 3s. 7d. per 45 lbs. Oats sold at 3s. 4d. per 45 lb. In barley, beans, aiia peas, there was not much business done, Indian corn met a good demand at nearly previous rates.

CHEESE MAUKJET.— Last year at this time such was the rage to possess cheese that the dairies were bespoke before they came to hand, the consumption at that time being so good; but now it is labour and toil to effect sales, and the warehouses are all moderately full. There have, during the past week, been several arrivals of American at Liverpool, and the quotations are low. Unless the cheese is sold this month, we feel persuaded the farmers will have to take prj,çes considerably lower.

COPPER AND LEAD DUTIES BILL.

At the same time they are sold at prices usually charged for very inferior articles. The following are the prices at which any quantity, from two ouncesto oae pounlfl may be obtained:— s. d.

SMITHFIELD. MONDAY, SEPT. 4.—Oar market to-day was seasonably well supplied with foreign stock, and there was a decided improvement in its general quality. The demand for it was heavy, and prices were not supported. As the bullock supply exceeded the wants of the buyers, and the weather had set in warm, the beef trade was in a very sluggish state, at a decline in the quotations of 2d. per 8 lbs. The highest figure for beef was only 4s. per 8 lbs. Prime old Downs, which 11 ere scarce, sold steadily at last week's prices, viz., from 4s. lOd. to 5s. per 8 lbs. All other breeds of sheep moved off slowly at late rates. In pigs comparatively little business was transacted, at late rates. Price ner stone of Slbs. (sinliiiz the offal). Beef. 3s Odtols.
