MOLDAVIA AND WALLACHIA. Lord Dudley STUAHT moved for an address for copies or ex- tracts of any correspondence between this Government and the Government of Turkey, and between this Government and the Government of Russia, relating to the occupation by Russian troops, of the provinces of Moldavia and Wallachia." In support of his motion the noble lord dwelt on the importance, to the com- mercial interests of this country, of the integrity and independence of the Turkish empire, which he now thought peri!led. Col. THOMPSON seconded the motion. Lord PALMEKSTON could not assent to the production of papers which had reference to a negotiation not. yet completed. Their production at this period would not, be compatible with the interests of the public service. England would not fail to treat the inde- pendence of Turkey as being of great political and commercial in- terest to her. Its integrity could not be compromised, nor its sub- jugation effected by one or more powers, without giving rise to a European conflict, and deranging the existing relations between the European states. The interest, of England was to maintain the status qUo, in the East. Communications were being made upon the subject, at this Court, whilst our Ambassador at St. Petersburg and the Russian Government were in negotiation. The noble lord then expressed his conviction that Russia harboured no intention of making any permanent encroachment upon the inde- pendence of Turkey, and he had every reason to believe, trusting to the forbearance of both parties, that the public peace would not be disturbed, p Mr. ANSTEY spoke in support of the motion, and intimated his intention of dividing the House upon it, should the noble mover be persuaded to attempt to withdraw it, or to let it be negatived with- out a division. Mr. M. MILNES and Mr. HUME thought it would be unwise to press the House to a division, while Mr. URQUHART hoped a divi- sion would take place, were it only to show how few members were present. Mr. DISRAELI eulogised the character and conduct of the Em- peror of Russia, who had, during the last twelve months, resisted many great temptations to the further aggrandisement of his crown, and whose policy had been too often unmeritedly denounced —a policy, in commenting on which the hon. member for Mon- trose had, for years, consistently treated the House to unmitigated nonsense. After a few words from Sir H. VRRNEY, Mr. J. A. SMITH, and Mr. J. O'CONNELL, Lord D. STUART withdrew his motion. On the motion of Sir W. SOMERVILLE. that the Protection of Justices (Ireland) Bill be read a third time on Friday, Mr. J. Q'CONNELL moved as an amendment that it be read that day six months. The I-lou..s,rlivi(led- Fof the amendment 2 Against it 38—36 The House adjourned at eleven.
