HOUSE OF LORDS-FRIDAY. I The House of Lords met at two o'clock, and a batcn of peers, having been sworn, Colonel Clifford, the Yeo- man Usher of the Black Rod, was directed to summon the attendance of the Lower House, in order that the newly elected Speaker might be presented to the Royal Commissioners, who were the Lord Chancellor, the Duke of Argyll, Earl de Grey and Ripon, the Earl of Kimberley, and Viscount Sydney. The Speaker, dressed in a simple Court costume, and attended by the Ser- jeant-at-Arms bearing the mace, and a large body of members of the Lower House, soon afterwards appeared at the bar.. -j The Speaker, addressing the Commissioners, said-l have to communicate to your lordships that, in obedi- ence to her Majesty's command, the Commons have proceeded to the choice of a Speaker, and their choice has fallen upon myself. 1 now present myself at your bar, and submit myself with all humility to her Majes-  gracious approbation. Lord Chancellor -Mr Denison, We are command, ed to assure you that her Majesty is so fully sensible of your zeal for the public service, and your MPe suffici- ency to discharge the arduous duties which her faitbful Commons have selected you to discharge, that she does most readily approve and confirm you therein. The Speaker-I submit with all humility and grati- tude to her Majesty's gracious commands. It is now my duty in the name and on behalf of the Commons of the United Kingdom to lay claim to all their ancient and undoubted rights and privileges -to freedom of speech in debate, freedom from arrest in their persons and their servants, to all the freedom.of access to her Ma- jesty which occasion shall require, and that the most favourable construction shall be put upon all their pro- ceedings. With regard to myself, I pray that if any error should be committed it may be imputed to myself, and not to her Majesty's loyal Commons. The Lord Chancellor—Mr Speaker, we have it fur- ther in command to inform you that her Majesty doth most readily confirm all the rights and privileges which have ever been granted to or conferred upon the Com- mons by any of her Royal predecessors. With respect to yourself, Sir, though her Majesty is sensible that you stand in no need of such assurance, her Majesty, will, however, put the most favourable construction upon your words and actions. The Speaker bowed and withdrew.
