R HYL- VI-OTjRS AT THK IhDROLUIIIR ESEABLtSHSIENT.— Mrs Sit'.lden, Rhyl; Mrs Bntlcr, Walsall Mr Cockle. Birmingham Mr Llewelyn, London Rev. Mr McCtirJy, Loughborough. PULICE C rax.— On Thursday, before W. Pryce Jones, Esq, aud Dr Girdlestone, Emm x lionet is, a married woman, lolging in Back Kinmel Street, was charged with prostitution. P. C. Taafh. proved the case, and the prisoner was sentenced to one month's imprisonment with hard labour. FIKE AI BHUXSWICK CHAPEL.—A p AIC AVOIDED.—On Sunday eveniug last, after the commencement of the service, a fire was discovered to have broken out underneath the flooring of one of the classrooms im- mediately adjoining the above place of woiship, near the spot where the heating apparatus is fixed. The was a good congre- gallon assembled, Mr R. Williams officiating. The service bad commenced, and Mr Williams was reading the lesson for the evening when the first signs of uneasiness were manifested by the congregation. Just as Mr Williams was concluding the lesson, a volume of sm .ke or steam was seen rising from the floor and the congregation rose en masse and made for the doors. Those in the gallery commenced to rush, but upon a word from one or two gentle- mor, in the body of the building, assuiingi them that there was no immediate da.rger, oroer was immediately restoied, and the con- gregatioa left quietly. It is not known how the lire originated; but that it had been burning for some time is quite evident from ithe marks letE upon one of the joists i underneath the flooring of the vestry. Water, of which there was a plentiful supply inside the building, was at once thrown in buclcetfuls over the burning portion, and the fire m the heating apparatus was ex- ioguihed; and in a short time further danger was averted. The flooring of the vestry was lifted, and the timber underneath carefully examined. It is feared that the, heating apparatus has been rendered useles" for farther use, it having cracked througn water being thrown over it whiio red hot. It is hardly necessary to sar that what might have proved a very serioni catastrophe, resulting in the destruction of valuable property, if not of life also, was very providentially averted.

PAKLIAXENIARY SOCIETY.— Very few members put in au appearance at the re assembling of the House, on Thuisday even- | ing last, after the Christmas recess. The j business before the House was the adjourned debate on the motion for the abolition of the House of Lords, to which an amendment had been proposed in favour of altering the con- stitution of that House, by doing away with hereditary qualification, nnder certain condit- ions. The terms of the motion and the amendment have been given in full in these I columns at the time they were proposed. A lively debate took place, and some very good speeches were delivered on both sides. On the amendment being put, it was declared negatived. A division was then taken on the original motion, with the result that 11 voted for, arid 11 against. The speaker therefore declared that theresolutionhad fallen through. Only two members of the Government were in their places, and the leaders of the Oppos- ition were also absent. Several members occupied seats in the strangers' gallery" during the debate. In consequence of their not taking their proper places during the sitting, the Speaker very properly ruled that they could not take part in the division- After j arranging the business, as well as could be done under the circumstances, for the nexM meeting, tho Speaker left the chair, and the Ilonse rose.
