HOUSE OF COMMONS—TuEiDAY. The ballot in the Drogheda election petition took place for the appointment of the Committee. Lord MORPETH said, that, having been asked on a former occasion when it was his intention to in- troduce a Bill on the subject of the Irish Churoh, he begged to say that he intended on Friday next to move for leave to bring in such a Bill. In the first place he meant to move that the Bill of the 28rd of March, which was introduced by the right hon. baronet, Sir Robert Peel, be discharged. To that course he supposed there would not be much objec- tion, as he imagined the right hon. baronet would not proceed with it. Next, he would move that the resolutions respecting the appropriation of the surplus revenues of the Irish Church, which were agreed to by that House, be read and, next, be would introduce a Bill for the better regulation of ecclessiastical revenues in Ireland, and for the ho- provement of moral and religious instruction there. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER, in reply to a question from Mr P. Stuart, said that the reduction in the duty on East India coffee would not apply to the stock in bond. The House then went into Committee on the Mu- nicipal Reform Bill. Clauses 6 to 8 were agreed to. On clause 9, Sir W. FOLLETT moved an amend- ment, to the effect that nothing contained in the Act should in any way be construed to curtail or abolish any right of voting in the election of a member or members to serve in Parliament, which is now possessed, or might hereafter be acquired, under the provisions of the Reform Act. After a lengthened discussion the amendment was rejected by a majority of 278 against 232. Mr A. TREVOR, after a debate, withdrew his motion for the omission of the clause, which he Baid he would renew on the bringing up of the report. The 9th clause was then ordered to stand part of the Bill, and the Chairman reported progress. The Isle of Man Corn Bill passed through Com- mittee. T „ „. The ATTORNEY- ENERAL obtained leave to bring in a Bill tor the better regulation of Eccle- siastical Coutrs. Mr Wakley's motIOn, "1 bat the ballot for entering the names of members having public petitions to present do take place half an hour before the time appointed for Mr Speaker taking the Chair," was agreed to. The House adjourned at one o'clock.
