PUBLIC BUSINESS. Lord J. RUSSELL, in moving a resolution with a view of acceler- ating the progress of public business, announce(1 the course wluch the Government intended to pursue with reference to various mat- tel's IIOW before the House. He proposed to take the Parliamen- tary Oaths Bill on the 30th of the present month. He should hope that the House would agree to the retort on the Navigation Bill that evening the third leading might then be taken immedi- ately after the Easter holidays, so that it might be fixed for the 23rd instant. He proposeu that the third reading of the Naviga- tion Bill should be taken on the 23rd of the piesent month. If the report on this bill did "not come on t)-iiiglit, he proposed to take it on Wednesday next, and be hud no doubt that this stage of the bill would be got through so as to enable the Government to take tiie third reading on the 23rd instant. With respect to the Rate- in-Aid Bill, he proposed to get a vote on account. The motion for the large grant of which he lwd given notice might give rise to very considerable discussion. One hon. gentleman had given notice of his intention to propose an alternative of an income-tax for Ireland. Such a proposition was likely to give rise to a debate, and it would be vpry inconvenient that this question should le proposed until after the Easter holidays. He should tnerefore pro- pose, if the bill were read a second tune that nigot, that tins alter- native of the income-tax should be taken oil going into committee on the 16th instant. WITH regard to the immedia-e relief given to Ireland, it was desirable it should be settled as soon as possible. Of course, he should wish these questions to be disposed of before he proceeded to those other measures which himself, or other mem- bers of the Government, might desire to produce after Easter. After an animated discussion, in which several members a part, tlie motion was agreed to.
