HOUSE OF COMMONS-FRIDAY. The House of Commons met at two o'clock, and shortly afterwards the Speaker was summoned by the Yeoman Usher of the Black Rod (Colonel Clifford) to the bar of the House of Lords. On his return the right bon. gentleman addressed the House as follows:—I have to report that her Majesty through a Commission of the House of Lords appointed by her has approved the choice which the House made of myself yesterday as Speaker. I then in your name, and on your behalf, claimed all the usual rights and privileges, including freedom of debate, freedom from arrest of their persons for debt, access to her Majesty when occasion shall de- mand, and that a most favourable construction may be put on your proceedings. Ail these her Majesty has, through her Commissioners, been pleased to allow and confirm, I have now to repeat my thanks to you for the honour you have conferred on me, and I would remind hon. members that they should now proceed to take the oath prescribed by law. The Speaker then took the oath, and signed the Par- liamentary roll, and the first batch of members was sworn in.
