HOUSE OF LORDS.—TUKSDAY, JUNE 18. The Ercumbered Estates (Ireland) Bill, was read a third time. 0:1 e rtriuor bills were then discussed, and the House adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS.—TUESDAY, JUNE 18. Mr. BRIGHT moved an address to the Queen, praying for the appointment of a select committee to proceed to India to inquire into and report upon the obstacles that now prevent, and the means of hereafter extending, the cultivation of cotton in that country. Mr. MILKER GIBSON seconded the motion, which, however, was negatived without discussion. SABBATH OBSERVANCE. Mr. FonsTER moved for leave to bring in a bill to repeal the prohibition-Contained in preceding acts, againgt transmitting letters otherwise than through the post on Sunday afternoon. The prohibition, lie argued, was designed to protect the revenue, and as the Post-office intended to give up carrying letters on Sunday it would save perpetual infringements of the law to allow correspondence to pass through other channels. Colonel THOMPSON seconded the motion. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER admitted his belief that the vote of the House on a previous night, respecting Sunday labour at the Post-office, had been unfortunate, and would lead to much evasion and many inconveniences. But having adopted that vote, he could not consent to the present motion, which was an indirect mode of rendering it nugatory. The motion ulti- mately was negatived, and the House adjourned at a quarter to TWO, HOUSE OF COMMONS.—WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19. On the motion of Lord NULGUND, the School Establishment (Scotland) Bill, was read a second time. .RRY— '— PHILIP BIRD'S WINE AND SPIRIT S T O-R 22, ST. MARY-STREET, CARDIFF.
