MEDICAL ASSISTANCE TO DISEASED POLES. Lonl EGLllSTON moved fur a return" oftbe number of Polish refugees receiving allowance for subsistence and medical expenses during the period between the 28th of March, H148, and the 2.¡th of March, 1849, specifying the amount received, and the nature of the diseases in the treatment of which such medical expenses had been incurred." The noble lord complained that the Poles, a fierce and turbulent race, who were always found in the ranks of insurrection and revolution, were selected as especial objects of favour by the British Government. The Marquis of LANS DOWNS objected to the invidious character of the latter portion of the return moved for by the noble lord. The Poles who were now in lingland were in general men of high character and integrity, and had done nothing to forfeit the bounty which, he would not say the policy, but the charity of the country had gran ed them. III saying this he did not speak from any political sympathy with them, but from a sense of justice. After some further discussion, in which Lord STANLEY and the Marquis of LONDONDERRY took part, the first part of the motion was agreed to. Their lordships then adjourned.
