THE CLOSING OF PARLIAMENT.

Both Houses of Parliament have finished the sepsion with a scramble; each having detected the other in furtive attempts to pass favourite chart- mente in the confusion. The Commons ary out that the Lorda esad down amended bille at such a time that it is impossible to "comidor the amend- ments; the Lords are surprised by an attempt to Jan. omagala the Bribery at Elections Bill at an ya- usual sitting. The Vice-President of the Bourd of Trade avows that he has allowed a bill to go with an improper clause in it, because the baste is too great to permit bis ultering it in the Hours of Lords; the Commona discover in a private rail. way bill the pith of Lord Montengle's Kailway Audit Bill which they had rejected. The Lords throw put the bill; the Commons, the clause. The damage to the particular bills was small matter, compared to the confession on all hands, that both Houses were turning out their work, at the clows, in a state that nobody understood. The Proroga- tion Speech profesema that "the state of public basi. mos permite the dispersion of l'asfiament; but in order to get off by Wednesday, it was necessary to spend three or four days in that lovely patch ing and slashing. In one way or ether, measures Jan. have been disposed of; but some matters that do not come within tbs entegory of measures engaged attention. Lord Roden volunteered an explane. tion of his candwal towards the Orangeman on the 12th of July. His defense was little more than an echo of the surringe; with some show of reluc lance, he consented to receive the Urangemen; regaled them with beer, but pleads that it was only of the sort called soil; joined them. In a field of his own, where he found a scaffold; and address- ed his Bratbran' in a sporch full of what he prob ably meant for axboriation from violence, only they reed very like the Irish incentive 'not to nail a rascal's ears to the pump People here are shocked at the faction-Oght tone of Lord Roden's pacifice; but they do bim an injustice in viswing him from the Hour of £rds' point of view; there he is sa exotic-at Tullymore he is of the in- digenous Orange species; all his affection and convictions are Orange; he has Orange ideas of tight anu wrong; he speaks in the Orange dialect, and is too old to lonto another. Some oro scanda lized, because, being Custos Rotolorum, he does not know that an armed and intimidating assemblage is illegal: yet be is not altogether without warrant In the contrary opinion.

It is true that those two negations do not establish the requisite affirmative, the legality of arined Drange processions; but to perceive that (ach requires some cool acumen; to which indecil, sharp Sir George Orey has t bat owly and, since his revelation of the illegality at common law is quite recent. Lord Rodan is manifestly stronger in the heart then the head fe is at only out of place geographically when speaking in the House of Lords, but also ebronologically; he belongs to the past-be is the Newcastle of Ireland; the really contemporary generation of Jocelyn in the one that has succeeded him, and that testifies that the hopes of Jocelyn bas advanced with the times.

Mr Elawes, on the tule of ad- mjuing numbing, stoply refused. The chairman was therefore instructed to mova iu the House an address to the Crown, asking for n Commission to laku evidence in Ceylon. Lord John Russell apposed the motion, mainly on the ground that the Committee had adduced an evidence in support of the application,-evidence being the very thing desiderated-and that such an inquiry would embarraza the Governor, by implying a prima facia charge against Lord Torrington, as if that charge were not implied in the very proceedings of the Committee. No, said Lord Juhn; suther lot the Governor be impeached 1 will impeach bim? cried Mr Hunsa. Or, id Lord John, *let the Commides be reappointed next year,

We take the following paragraph from a Ma- dras paper received by last oinil. We will not assert that the letter from the Secretary of State to the Governor of the Mauritius was mare counterpart of that addressed to the Go. vernor of Hongkong, but from the phasagos of the letter to Mr Bonham which have appeared in the local papera, it appears that in substance they were the same, and had he acted upon it at once as Sir George Anderson did, an Indian Journalist might havo intimated the fact in THE FRIEND OF CHINA terms precisely similar to those we now quote.

TO-DAY we keep our promise of publishing a report of the debate in the Legislative Council of Ceylon on the supply ordinances for 1850, preceded by the report of a Sub-Committee of official and unofficial members. la the debato itself there is nothing remarkablo, apart from the unanimity of fooling existing between the two divisions of Council on the necessity for retrenchment. The history of the charge of £24,000 towards the military establishment shows how easy it is to lay burdens upon a colony-how difficult to get them remayed.

The mixed Council of Ceylon is one common in the British colonies, and although in many respects it is objectionable all tho members, official and non-official, being nomi- nated by the Governor-it is vastly superior to the burlesque upon logislation which exists in Hongkong under the name of a Legislative Council.

TH■ melancholy death of Mr. W. F. Gany has cast a gloom over society. On Thursday after- noon his body was carried to its place of rest, followed by a large number of the inhabitants, including the Governor and Lieutenant Gover- nor of the Colony and many Naval and Military Officer. The Colonist Chaplain read the im- pressive burial service of the English Church, and few who were present could fail to be struck with the appropriate truth of the passage that "in life we are in death," Before them was the spot where two days before the deceased met the accident which deprived him of life; and where at that very moment, if in life. ho would have been participating in exhilarating and active amusements.

Mr Grey was connected with China for a long term of years, and was endeared to the foreign community by his many virtues.

As regards the distance to be opened and its precilability, he was not theor ising, lar he had lately at his own expense opened the two pathe from Badulla to the Kandy road.

To sonis residents of the Consular ports and to as good many who visit these ports, £100 is a large sum,--more, possibly, than they are worth in the world. It is hard to place these mens fortunes at the mercy of Consular officers; at Amoy, and at other places, past ex- perience shows what Consular functionaries are capable of. We are told that "there is no evil without its redrem." But here is an evil with- out any redreas.

2nd. "Provision for the trial of all suits and actions wherein Her Majesty's Consula or other Consular officers may be parties,"

We were under the impression that " Her Majesty's Consule and Consular officers" were amenable to the laws of their country and could be sued after the usual form. And should the Right Hon, decretary for Foreign Affairs require information on this head, we are pre- pared to show that Consular officers in China bave frequently disgraced the office they hold. and that the Supreme Court is a wholesome check upon men of violent dispositions-ias- perienced in public life-and from early educ- ation, habits, and past pursuits, totally unfit for the appointments they now hold.

We do not mean that all young men are at this particular period of their live extravagant, or that they are evan induced to be so by example; but there is undoubtedly perpe tuated, at each of the universition, a kind of tradi tional spirit, which is taken to warrant a certain extraordinary expenditure.

THE THANKSGIVIne Day.-Tho large congregations assembled in the two cathedral of the metropolis beard the chofern discussed, so to speak, on its ow merits; but though the Bishop of Londos, sed still more the Dean of Westmin Siameter, went deep into natural panson, they d?ith?c precluded the idea of a divine Interference nor left the matter without improvement to the heart of the Crimino. Dr Buckland appears to have delivered himaalf with his wanted energy sad free dom of utterance. The profesor came forth, as it were, from the school of material nature, and expounded "the oracles of God" wraten on the face of his works, and on the order of his providence. The occasion demanded this appoal; and as the Dean's subject happily confined him to the surface of the earth, and Geschosser involved no underground theories, we do not doubt that his arrmon will be up- preciated by many who cannot follow him into all his scientifio speculations.- Times.

The Police and Jail cost the enormous amount of £7,000; this with the repairs of the streets und roads within the city is all that strictly speaking is Municipal expenditure, and on ler a more economical system the establish- ment would be greatly reduced.
