The committee then divided-For retaining the clauses 23, For the amendment 22,-1. The remaining clauses of the bill were afterwards passed through the committee, and their lordships adjourned. at. half-past 9 e clock. Monday, June 17th. [the] The discussion of Lord Stanley's. motion; on. the-Greek question drew together a number of peers. There were also present a large number of peeresses and other illustrious personages, and a great number of foreign am- [ambassadors] bassadors. [Ambassador] orders of the house be enforced with reference to the Che. valier [value] Bunsen, who was then oceupying [occupying] the room of two ladies in the. peeresses' gallery. His excelleney [excellent] seemed disposed to retain his seat, but the-usber [the-usher] of the black rod shortly appeared at-the side entrance, and Lord Brougham's odject [object] Was accomplished. OUR RELATIONS WITH GREECE. Lord STANLEY said, it was far from his-wish to drag the. bouse [Bourse] through the papers lying-on its table, but he could inform them that he had risen with regret and pain at the prodigality of folly, the lavish expenditure of misplaced ingenuity which they discl [disc] e course which. her - Majesty's government had. pursued was. calculated' to. en- [endanger] danger the peaceful relations of this ceuntry [this country] with the other great powers. He hoped andi [and] trusted no such result would follow, but he wo ask whether the conduct of the government had not been characterized by unnecessary rashness, and whether the claims which had been compul- [compel- compulsorily] sorily [surely] urged upon the Greek government had not been to a large extent unjust He reminded the house.that Greeee [Green] was a kingdom of not more than. fourteen years' standing, and that its. independence was guaranteed by England, France, and Russia. For many years past the mn- [natives] tatives [natives] of these three great powers appeared to. have been intent, not on strengthening the authority of the Greek monarchy, but on intriguing tost [toast] owninfiuence [infancy] in the government of that country.. Of late French influence had been in the ascendant, and in. consequence it was be- [believed] lieved [lived] by our representative at Athens that the government was acting in compliance with French interest, and in hos- [hostility] tility [utility] to that of this country. The greater portion of the claims put forward, and of which their lordships-had heard so much, were on behalf of persons who could never be considered entitled to. an interference such as that under- [undertaken] taken on their behalf. In the case of Stellio [Elliot] Sumachi [Sumac hi] redress was demanded for having tortured a. British subject, though it aferwards [afterwards] tyrned. [turned] out.on a legal inquiry that no torture had ever been inflicted. The- [The noble] noble lord then passed in-review the case of the Fantome [Pantomime] and that of deb the Ionian government, and declared that. it was difficult to ; argue such claims for compensation as-those-against Greece in a satisfactory manner, wearing, as they didi [did] more the appearance of a tradesman's bill than a national grievance. e must, however, express his indignation that eut [et] of such insignificant questions should arise the risk of an European war, The modest demand made-by Mr.. for a piece of land which cost him 300.drachmas, [W.drachmas] was.40;000 drackmas, [was.40;W Madras] or 1,500; yet, while. tha [that] British government were laying pers [per] with. reference to this.demand on the table of their Toudships' [Lordships] house, it was-aware that Mr. Finlay's claim had been settled by arbitration with his consent. The noble lord described such conduct as a breach of faith on. the part ef the government, and as. tampering with their lordships' xonfidence. [confidence] With regard to.the-claims of M. Pacifico, [Pacific] he Fdiculed, [ridiculed] amidst the laughter of the house, the accuracy with which the funiture [furniture] of M.. Pacifice's [Pacific's house had been specified. He peinted [printed] oub [sub] the extraordinary. absurdity of the British government insisting on the payment of 21,000 for alleged claims against Portugal, which the government ef that. country. had declared not to be worth one farthing, and remarked, in indignant terms, that the British govern- [Government] mrent [rent] hedi' [head] pressed'for the payment.of. gll.its-demands. [ll.its-demands] on Greece in and rsent [sent] its fiect [fact] to. enferce [conference] what -- ment [men] within 24 hours. He then described the course which the questions thus raised between this country and Greece had followed, and how the extent of M. Pacifico's [Pacific's] claims had interfered with a settlement. He bore testimony to the noble and dignified conduct of the Greek government, who were unable to resist, and whoye [whole] sufferings had excited the sympathy of Europe. Mr. WyXe [WY] and Admiral Parker only -aceording [according] to their instructions, and he was sure that the latter would rather have been engaged in the most deadly contest of an honourable warfare than in such transagtions,. [transactions] The noble lord in. eloquent terms contrasted the tone of tha [that] Emyperor-cf [Emperor-cf] letter on. the Greek guestion [question to. his representative in this country, with that -which Lord Palmezston [Palmerston had thought fit to adept to the de- [defenceless] fenceless [fences] government, of Greece He reminded the house that Frauce, [France] though to pursue a most frieaslly [furiously] gourse [course] of conduct had. been alienated by tho treatment which she hac&k [ha&k] received. The question of the island of Sapienza. [Sapien] was, one on which tha [that] British, govern- [government] ment [men] bad no right to act independently of the other pro- [protecting] tecting [testing] powers and now that Russia had protested on. the subject he supposed the claim which had been be withdrawn. The order to take forcible possession of the island, however, had. not been rescinded, and had only not Beon [Been] executed because Admiral Parker and Mr. Wyse [Wise] had bad more discretion than Lord He thought that he had made out the points stated in his motion; am if they had been guilty of injustice-if they had made ex- [extravagant] travagaut [extravagant] demands-if they had oppressed the weak and Aisgested [Suggested] the strong-it. became that house to show that the government of England was not England. strain. of the highest loquence eloquence] he called on the house to vindicate abe [be] authority of a great nation prostituted by an attempt to enforce unjust demands upon a weak and defenceless Btate. [State] - he Marquis of LANSDOWNE disputed entirely the sound- [soundness] pess [press] of the resolution before- [before the] the house in pvint [point] of interna- [internal- international] onal [only] law. He pointed out that injuries to the-persczs-and [the-persecute-and] properties of British subjects abroad had always been held practze [practice] 4 justify a peremptory demand for redress, and that with- [without] 4gut [gout] reference to whether the government of the country avhere [every] the injuries were sustained was an-absulute [an-absolute] monarchy, constitutional monarchy, or a republic. Greece, as the bouse had. [Bourse had] been tok [to] was an independent government, an if she were'so she must accept the responsibilities.as well as the privileges of that position. He quoted a number of instances where foreign nations, whose subjects had beon [been] treated with indignity, had enforced redress in an equally ocisive decisive] manner as in the case before the house andi [and] ha his list. by mentioning that. at the present mement [moment] American ships of war were on their way to Lisbon to sup- [support] port peremptory demands for redress made by the govern- [government] ment [men] of the United States on that of Portugal. Coming to the main point ef the noble lord's speoch-he [speech-he] expressed his regret that Lord Stanley had condescended to attack M. Pacifico's Pacific's] character, Whatever that character. might be, it bad nothing whatever to do. with tke [the] question. Mr. Wilkes might have becn [been] 2 gambler and cheated at play, yet the principles which were associated with his name were not sompromized [promised] thereby In the same way Lord Stowell had ronounced [pronounced] many splendid decisions-cu. points of law. ewolv- [wolves- Alfred] great and important truths, though the people to whom his judgments [judgment] referred were many of them slave dealers, ye and adultercis, [adulterous] The noble lord had referred to r. Kinlay's [Finlay's] case, but through the influence of the Greek govornment [Government] the arbitraters [arbitrators] had. never beemalowed [beloved] to meet, aod [and] the writers on international law declared that a delay was as bad as a denial of justice. Again, in the case of the robbers choosing a Greek custom-house in order to.earry [to.Barry] on 2. system of plundering lopjay [lop jay] subjects, he reminded the Bouse [Bourse] that Sir Edmund Lyens' [Lens] letter to the Greek govern- [govern spent] spent on that subject had never heen [hen] answered. Paci- [Pace- Pacific] fico's [fica's] claims had been made to the Greek government in encral [encl] terms, to. prevent inconvenience. if that ment [men] ised [used] no. upveasoneble [unreasonable] ebjection.

The bill was then read a third timiand [demand] passed. LogD [Gold] BROUGHAM AND. THE PRussIAN [Prussian] The Marquis of LaNsDOWNE [London] referred to the incident of last nicht [night] (Monday), when the Chevalier Bunsen was.obli [was.able] to leave-his place in the-peeresses-gallery, on the-motion cf Lord Brougham ;. and gave notice-that on Friday (last-night) he would propose the appointment of a select. committee, to inquire into the arrangements for the accommodation of strangers, with the view of assigning a place- [place] to. fereign [foreign] ambassadors.

[Smith] O'BRIEN.-Sir L. , O'BRAEN. [O'BRAN] complained of the ill-treatment which his-brother, S. O'Brien, had received as a convict, and which he alleged has utterly ruined his health Sir G. GREY vindicated the humanity of the authorities in the conduct pursued ' towards Smith O'Brien who had, if anything, been treated. with too. great. lenieney. [leniency. Any suffering he endured, beyond. E those of his fellow cenvicts [convicts] were. the vonsequences [consequence] of his ; faut [fat] in refusing to give the undertaking required, before he could obtain a ticket of leave. Ff THE Factory BILL.-On the consideration of the amendments to the above bill having been moved, Lord ASHLEY brought. forward the motion of which he had given notice designed to render the restrictive provisions. of the ; measure as regarded the hours of factory Inbour [Incur] stringent. in prohibiting the empleyment [employment] of childyen....... [children] G. GREY believed that the act as it stood provided 'sufficient protection for the younger operatives against an 'undue amount of labour. This amendment, he added, would result in a highly injurious interference with the em- [employment] ployment [Parliament] of the adults and the availability of the motive (powers. ...... Mr. AGLIONBY [AGONY] supported the amendment, 'which Mr. S. Crawford also concurred in. approving....... Mz Bricut [Brit] convendad. [contended] that so fir frem [free tlie. [tie] proposition offering a benefit to the factory children, it would have the effect of throwing them in great numbers out of employment. Mr. EDWARDS combated that conclusion, asserting that the labour of the juvenile operatives was considered as valuable, and received nearly the same remuneration as that of a i full-grown. agricultural. labourer... ...Mr. . EGERTON and Mr. ELLie [Ellie opposed the amendment as with the freedom of labour, and co mpelling [spelling] the stoppage of the motive power of mills....... Mr. HuME [Home] also disapproved ot the motion, because it infringed the natural relationships of labour and capital Lord R, GRosvENOR [Grosvenor] saw in the amendinent.nething [amendment.nothing] but a nec [ne] 'y and humana [human] of protection to the children Measure r; Fox considered that the amendment would render labour really free by removing from the operative children the Gomprlsion [Compulsion] to work during the interval which they wished to devote to recreation or improxement....... [improvement] Mr. Brown briefly opposed the amend- [amendment] and after-a few words from Mr. Stansficld, [Stansfield] the honse [house] divided-for Lord. Ashley's. motion, 159; against, 160; majority, 1. This close-run division waa [was announced amidst loud cheers from the supporters.ef. Lord Ashley's amendment. THe [The] AMENDMENT OF LORD JOHN MaNNERS [Manner] ow LaBour.-Lord [Labour.-Lord] JoHN [John] MaNNERS [Manner] then broughi [brought] forward his postponed motion to amend the act by inserting half-past five instead of six, p.m., as the appointed time fur leaving off. work in factories. The nobielord [nobility] enlarged; in a pro- [prolonged] longed address, upon the valuable boon which this addi- [add- additional] tional [national] half hour of leisure would confer upon the operatives. Mr. Hornby seconded the motion, and enforced the propriety of making the bill in reality what it. wasin [was in] name -a Ten Hows Bill. ....... Sir G. Grey looked for no satisfactory results from any bill which could not secure the co-operation both of the-manufacturers and the opera- [operatives] tives [lives] in carrying it out. Such a union of action, he believed, upon the best authority, would be enjoyed by the bill as now offered to the house. He vehemently repudiated the charge that. the government had designed to. nullify the ak operation of the statute of 1847, or acted' under the promptings of a conclave of millowners....... [milliners] The amend- [amendment] ment [men] was supported by Mr. Stanford,. Mr. Newdegate, [Newgate] Mr. G. Bankes, Mr. Muntz, [Mount] Mr. Heald, Mr. W. J. Fox, Alderman Sidney, Mr. C. Anstey, Mr. Sharman Crawford, Mr. Heywood and Mr. Wilson Patten. ....... RussELL [Russell] referred to the details of the statutes passed in 1844 and 1847, and declared that the new bill offered advantages to the operatives which were not contemplated -in-those acts. Perfect faith was kept with the workmen by this bill. Some additional restrictions were enacted against the employers, and it was a fair alternative to com- [compensate] pensate [sateen] those restrictions by extension on another side. The measure should therefore, be discussed, pot in the light of a promise to be fulfilled, but aceording [according] the principles of a sound expediency. Theoretically the bill. appeared reasonable and practically it had been met by only a very impartial expression of disapproval among the operatives, in spite of the attempts to get. up an agitation against it. Mr. ELLjot [Elliott] feared, that even as it stood the bill would seriously ef the smaller proprietors of mil s moved by water power, such as existed.in the county he represented (Roxburghshire.),.....Mr. proved of the bill, and thought it suffident......Mr. [sufficient......Mr] WARDS having bricfly [briefly] spoken in favowr [favour] of the amendment, Mr, DisRAELI [Disraeli] recounted the progress of the agita- [agitate- agitate] E tion [ion] which, after-a lapse. of thirty resulted in ob- [obtaining] taining [training] an act from the legislature. Thisstatute-was [This statute-was] ed under no stimulas [stimulus] of party spirit; and had proved emi- [mi- eminently] nently [neatly] successful, its operation being aecompanied [accompanied] b marked prosperity among those very which it had, at one time, been supposed to endanger. ease, why should we now, when an accident had brought bill again before the legislature; proceed. to. pass judg- [judge- judgment] ment [men] upon it as if it. was guilty of faiure, [failure] and virtually abo- [abolish] lish [Lush] its powers a nist [inst] prius [Pius] decision, arts which an attorney would degpise [despise] were employed to ritle [title] the people of the fruits of 30 years' exertion, and fius- [firs- frustrate] Ftrate [Ft rate] a measure which had been passed by the legislature, ratified by the country, seated by the prime minister, and approved by its practical results.

ABOLITION OF THE IRISH Lorp-LigEvTENANCY.-On [Lord-Countenance.-On] the proposition for- [forth] the second reading of this. bill Mr. ANSTEY opposed the motion, remarking that he had ne objection to those clauses of the bill which enabled Her Majesty to abolish the office of Lord-Lieutenant, but he was not pre- [per- prepared] pared to to carry the principal of centralization further ; e objected to a fourth Secre [Secure] of State, and could not vote for the second reading of the bill if the government were determined to akide [aide] x the machinery contained in its concluding clauses....... Sir R. PEEL was content that the experiment proposed in this bill should be made, though 'he had some misgivings as to the result; whatever good effects might follow the removal of tha [that Vicerayship [Viceroy] Dublin,. he could not satisfy himself that, with respect to the lecal [local] machinery and the administration of justice, the removal of the Lord-Lieutenant, a nobleman of high ac- [agreements] gnirements, [regiments] animated with a sincere desire to govern Ireland independently of parties, might not have an inju- [ing- injurious] rious [riots] effect. He also. ested [rested] that the duties of a fourth Seeretary [Secretary] of Stabe- [State- Stable] (for Ireland) be abandoned, and that this department should be under the guidance of the Home Secretary, in order that one mind oe direct the affairs of both countries. Mr. E. B..

ScHOOL [School] ESTABLISHMENTS (SCOTLAD). [SCOTLAND] MEL- [ELEGANT] GUND, [FUND] in moving the second reading of the School Establish- [Established] ments. [rents] (Sco [So] Bill, gave a history of the ancient system of education in Scotland, and described the present condi- [condition- condition] tion [ion] of the parochial schools, and the qualifications of the masters, whence-be concluded that the state of education there was. very far from what it. ought to be. He then showed. that the taxation, by which the-parochial system is isnpported,. [supported] was unequal; that the wealth of Scotland was taxed. much less than it used to be for education ; and that the masters were underpaid. He stated the reasons why he-had' founded his bill upon. the old principle of a territorial instead of a denominational system; he in Scotland was essentially the same, there was no real obstacle on this ground to a united education, and to the teaching of religion in. the schools, and he pro to abolish tests Sir G. CLERK opposed the bill, and moved to defer the second reading for six months.
