FRIDAY. In the House of Lords Earl Granville, in reply to the Duke of Marlborough, said the Government statement with regard to the of Ireland would probably be made on Monday. The Marquis of Clanricarde, under these circumstances, post- poned the motion on the subject, of which he had given notice. Their lordships adjourned at 5'20. In the House of Commons, Sir S. Northcote called attention to the inconvenience and delay caused by the discontinuance of the wse of the special wire for transmitting the telegraphic re- ports-of Parliamentary debates to the provincial newspapers direct from the House of Commons. The Marquis of Hartington attempted to explain how this class of news was formerly trans- mitted, and went on to say that the Government was now re- quired to send general news, Reuter's telegrams, sporting intel- ligence, and commercial news, during the period that the parlia- mentary news was being sent. In reply to a question as to the order of business, Mr Gladstone said he proposed to state on Monday the intentions of the Government with regard to Ireland, and, if possible, the second reading of the Education Bill would be proceeded with on the same day. The debate on the second reading of the Irish Land Bill was then resumed by Mr W. H. Gregory, who advocated alterations in committee. Lord Elcho was also in favour of considerable modifications. After some other speakers, Mr Disraeli rose. He said the Bill was not an agricultural but a political measure, its object being not to im- prove the cultivation of the land, but the relations between landlord and tenant. He regarded the circumstances of Ireland as justifying the ministry in calling the attention of Parliament to the question. After criticising the details of the Bill, and pointing out certain principles involved in it to which he ob- jected, the right hon. gentleman said he offered no opposition to the second reading. Mr Gladstone closed the debate, and the House divided. There were, for the second reading, 442; against, 11. Majority for Government, 431. The announcement of the numbers was received with much cheering and laughter. The other business was rapidly gone through, and the House ad- journed at 1'30.
