HOUSE OF LORDS.—TUESDAY, MAY 22. After a discussion on the state of our relations in the River Plate, and an almost inaudible conversation on railway companies, Lord BROUGHAM presented a petition from a large body of the Episcopal Church of Scotland, praying that all clergymen of the church of England and Ireland, on being appointed to chapels in Scotland, might be inducted to the charge of their congregations by t e Archbishop of Canterbury, or some other English bishop, and that there might be periodical visitations in Scotland by the bishops of the Established Church and finally, that the petitioners might be placed on such a footing as would give them all the advantages of the discipline of their own Church. A long and uninteresting debate followed on the petition and principles of the Episcopal Church in Scotland, in which the Bishop of SALISBURY, the Archbishop of CASTEKBUUY, the Duke of AR- GYLL, and the Bishop of EXKTEU took part. An accusation made by ihe Bishop of CASHEL against the Scotch Episcopal Church of Romanising tendencies elicited a warm defence of that Church from the Bishol) øf OXFORD, who insisted on its perfect Protestantism. The petition was ultimately ordered to lie on the table. The Marquis of LANSDOWNE stated, that in consequence of the lateness of the hour, he should propose that the committee on the Navigation Laws, which stood for that evening, should be deferred until Thursday next, when he hoped it would be proceeded with i hout any previous discussion. The committee was accordingly deferred, and Their lordships adjourned.
