A deputation waited on Monday on the Right Hon. H. A. Bruce at the Home Office to urge upon the Home Secietary the importance of taking more active measures for dealing with our criminal classes. Sir W. Crofton was the spokesman. He urged—first, that the Irish system of registration should be extended to England, so that criminals on emerging from prison with a ticket- of-leaw) sholtld be kept under surveillance by means of a central register, in which should be entered their names, places of destination, and employment, the police authorities in places to which ticket-of-leavers go to be duly informed. Secondly, that if persons twice con- victed of felony should afterwards be found to be with. out any honest means of livelihood, they should be liable to arrest, and bound to give security for engaging :n honest work during a certain stated period; or failing that to be s-iit to the workhouse. Nlr Bruce expressed great interest in the important subject brought before him, and after putting various questions, promised that the matter should have the attention of the Govern. ment. The Birmingham Liberals held a meeting on Monday night to consider what was to be done in consequence of Mr Bright having vacated his seat by taking office. Mr Bright sent a letter, in which he said It is not a month since you selected me as one of your representa- tives in Parliament, and before Parliament met the seat you intlusted to me became vacant. I have accepted office in the Administration which Mr Gladstone has just formed, and I must return to you to sanction the step I have taken. I trust you will not withdraw the confidence you hive so long placed iu me. I shall feel it a great houour again to be elected to represent your voice and interest iu the House of Commons. On the day of election I hope to be permitted to say more than can be conveniently said in this address." The follow- ing resolution was carried unanimously That this meeting heartily approves the course taken by Mr Bright in joiuiug the Ministry of Mr Gladstone, and, believing that Mr Bright is worthy of the continued confidence and support of his constituents, trust that he will be re- elected to represent this borough in Parliament by the unanimous vote of the electors."
