THURSDAY NIGHT. goo (PRIVATE CORRESPONDENCE.) LONDON. July 4. IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OF COMMONS, JULY 4. To day the House of Commons adopted the novel and improved practice cf proceeding to the public business at 12 o'clock, and a very numerous attendance of about 250 members, was the result. They proceeded to discuss the Irish Church Tempor- alities Bijl, Much surprise was excited by a motion, by Mr. tfColluell, that th present salary of the bishop of Derry be not diminished. He stated that his reason for doing this was, that the Right Rev. Prelate had evinced great liberality towards the Catholics of Ireland: and though the motion was ob- jected to by Mr. Finn, and Mr. Shiel, who r-aid that it was contrary to the feeling of the people of Ireland, the honourable and learned gentleman persisted in it, and said that he was as good an organ of expression for the people of Ireland as the other honourable gentlemen. Much speculation has been excited by the unexpected tenderness of the honourable gentle- man for the bishop of Derry, especially when con- nected with the circumstance of the Right Rev. Prelate being brother-in-law of the noble premier. It recalls to recollection the remarkable expression of the present Lord Chancel'or, a few days before the breaking up of the late administration, that," whatever might happen it could not make no possible difference in his condition," when, in less than a week, he was found in the house of lords, Baron Brougham and Yaux, Lord High Chancellor of England. Ministers evince an extraordinary eagerness to get through the business of the Sessions many important measures, of which notice had been given, being withdrawn. It is expected parliament will be pro- rogued the first or second week in August. The West India body had a meeting yesterday which ended in appointing a deputation to call on Mr. Stanley for a copy of the bill about to be intro- duced isato parliament relative to slave emancipation. This I understand, Mr. 8lanley refused, on the ground that the bill is not yet fully prepared. It was intend- ed to have a meeting on Friday to hear the result of the interview but under these circumstances, it is doubtful whether the meeting will take place.
