IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT, In the HOUSE OF LORDS, August 3, the Building Societies Act (1874) Amendment Bill, and the St. Catherine's Harbour Bill, were read a second time. I The Legal Practitioners Bill and the Sol way Salmon Fisheries Bill passed through Committee. Their Lordships then adjourned. In the HOUSE or COMMONS, at the Morning Sitting, Mr. Newdegate asked whether any step would be proposed by the Leader of the House by which the House could mark its j sense of the great inconvenience to which it was subjected t last Tuesday and Wednesday by the Obstructives and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in reply, said, that, as far as he could collect it, the opinion of the House was not in favour of making any other formal record of the proceedings beyond tiiat which already stood on the Journals. Those proceeflings spoke for themselves, and if there should be any repetition of them the House would know how to deal with them. Mr. Forster, reading out a telegram just put into his hands from Constantinople, asked whether any steps had been taken by the Government to assist the distressed British subjects—refugees from the seat of war—who were arriving in great numbers at Constantinople; and the Chancellor of the Exchequer replied that, as far as he was aware, the Government had no information on the subject. The report on the South Africa Bill occupied the whole of the Morning Sitting. Mr. O'Donnell moved a number of amendments, many of them repetitions of proposals which had been discussed in Committee, and, with two exceptions all were negatived, either without a division or by large majorities. Of the two accepted by the Government, one provided that the Union Parliament should meet, at least, once a year. Mr. Courtney, with the assent of the Govern- lnent, carritd an amendment, providing that the Union Parliament should start with the same privileges and im- munities as those exercised and enjoyed at the time of the passing of the Act by the House of Commons. The Irish Judicature Bill and the Canal Boats Bill were read a third time, the Colonial Stock Bill was read a second time, and the Metropolitan Board of Works (Money) Bill was passed through Committee. At the Evening Sitting, after a motion by Mr. Biggar for a Select Committee to inquire into the grievances of a lr. P. Lavry had been negatived without a division, the House went again into Committee on the Irish County Courts Bill, which was completed after several hours' discussion. Some other Bills were passed a stage, and the House ad- journed.
