GREAT BRITALN. In the Home of Cotnmons, on the 24lh ult., Mr. OuMtoia made various explanations relative to the French treaty, whlah the adjourned debate on Mr. DtCAiii's motion opposing the Budget was re- mated. Tbe principal speaker was Joan who defended the French Commercial treaty, and predicted that Incalcnlable advantages would be derived from it by England. He argued that Free- trade with France would raise Itself to the level of the United Slates, tbo new tariff with France being aa oheral as that with America. Mr. CAULDWILL In a similar (train, and pointed to the great Intercourse prevailing bet ween England and America, rendering war all but Impossible. Tbe auna relation might be actablUhed with France.

Mr. MoEmT made a violent attack on the Govern- te on the Italian Queition, as ajnttraly opposed to the tplrit of non-intervention. Lord Joan Rosnu aaid the Government acted fwlth a view to tattle the question In a manner best lated to secure the future peace of Europe. Lord PALKUNOH said the Budget would be formally proceeded with on the 27th. Blr C. WOOD stated that the total force to be sent from India to China would be Europeans, and natives. Mr. HABrnui called the attention of the House to a petition complaining.of a meditated breach of the peace between a British subject and an American clt- lacn for the to-called championship of England, and aaked wbetbiV the Government intended to take steps to put down the fight. I Blr G. C. LEWIS said the subject had been brought undar ihe notice of the Chief Commissioner of Po- lice, who would take steps to prevent the fight wlthlu the Metropolitan Pnllre District, but ao pledge could b. given as to Uie steps which would be taken beyond that limit. In the House of Urds, Earl CAIUIKVOII called at- tention to the statement Spain, in her proposed conditions of peace to Morocco, ileinimlod an ejten- sion of Spanish territory In Afilcn, and if Coremmant had any notice of this departure from the original declaration of Spaia. Lord WonmaoDbB said the Government had been In- formed that demands were a large Indemnity for expenses Incurred, numerous commercial advan- tages, an extension of territory, tbe establishment of a Roman Catholic Bishop at Fez, nnd the admission of diplomatic agent at the same place. Lord DuHOANiioi moved a resolution condemning tho performance of Divine worship In sundry London xrter a deoale, In which several Bishops rged non-intervention In the movement, the resolu- tion was withdrawn.

He said it had re- ceived tho unanimous eoasent of the Committee. It read three and paated. Mr. BaioaJt, of Indiana, gave notice of a bill appiopriating half a million for the plo'lon of tBffCapltol extension. Mr. MAJOR, of Virginia, moved that Mr. HTATT be brought In. Agreed to. The offored on Friday were read, pro- posing to commit Mr. HTATT to jail until to testify. Mr. of Massachusetts, waa men- tioned m English Parliamentary history, that on a certain oecaaton, when the Houso of was about to order commitment of a witness to the custody of the the Speaker, before patting the qnaatton, volunteered to say to the Honre that they should pause before they undertook to pass upon a qucaHon ao material to the liberty of a citizen. Tbat very now before you, Sir. You are to decide or. the liberty of a citizen, and I shall put the question to the Chairman of the Committee. It Is an unprecedented fact When you commit ibe gen- ,leman at the bar to the common jail, and if you es- tablish In thla body such a precedent, It will be a law In other cases. If It were conceded that to thla body belonged all the of the House of Parliament, I should not say anything. But it la notoriously un- true that we have such. The House of Parliament was without written constraint or constitution. Their power waa so omnipotent that it waa facetiously said they could do everything but change a man tu a woman, or a woman to a man. No such large pow- ers are claimed by the Senate. All powers are specific, and It cannot act In all possible In summoning a witness to the bar, and calling ou him to testify under paint and penalties, if you have the power you mutt find it in the per- haps, In the express words, hut In the Intent and meaning. There are three cases wbero tho Senate has this power. The first Is In the trial of Impeach- ments the second U In the examination of an elec- tion, and la the qualifications of Us members the third is In judging of thn conduct of Its mem- bers, and punishing by expnltlon- These three cases are judicial In character, and also, let me add, judicial In purpose. Beyond these cases, wblch stand upon the exprest words of tbe Conttlution, theie are two other cases which do not stand In the exprest letter, but so clear ly on reason and necessity that they may be oonshler- ed within the latent of the Constitution.

MISCKLLANEOTja. London Htrald gives a rumor that the Govern- s about to testify its gratitude to Mr. BBIOBT by tr lleces and, in a cue of inquiry Into the con- duct of the servants of the Senate, as In the case of IU Printer. These stand ou that just and universal right ef Mlf-defence. Inherent In alt parliamentary bodies are. In every Individual. Such are the 4ve cases in whlcb this extraordinary power lias been ex- ercised by the Senate tbe first three standing on trie letter of the Constitution, and the laM two on the great right of self-defence. All five are BanctkineJ by precedent, and all flve are judicial In their character, and also In purpose and latent. It is now proposed to add another, and I find the power which Is now sought tn enforce this nas no eaiiction in the letter of tho Constitution, or In the light of self-defence, or In any precedent of tbls bony, and the Senate may well pause before tbey take a step which maybe fatal to the liberty of a ciitren. Uniler the resolution forming the Committee, the witness been brought here, and the now calls on tbe Senate to Imprison an American citizen without any sanction of the Constitution or precedent. I don't stop but 1 out In this roolutlon two capital defects. First, It Is an .w- sumption Of judicial power by this body without auy judicial purpose or Intent. Tnls Committee Is In It- sell Dibunal of transcendent powers, but without uowtrotpunishment. It kits lu secret, like tho In- nulMtlon, with power lo denounce before tha worll our fellow-citizens as felons and tra'.tors. If any sti'iB- power exists under the Constitution, I say Utlonss to the other branch of Goverownt, who, having power to impeach, nay institute an in- oulry The ConBtitutlou of Maryland provides that her delegates may Inquire Into complaints, and offences aa a grand inquest, and mny comailt any person (or crime, but I doubt If the Sena'.e of mat State would nnderldke lo eiercise so transcendent a power. You assume to Inquire Into an alleged c.ime, no matter when committed or what Its na'.ure, wheth- er treason murder, or riot. I may be peculiarly iltlve, out I cannot forget, as a citizen of Massachu- setts, her own bill of rights, prepared by Joiiw ADAHS, which expressly announces that judicial powers must be severeu1 from legislative, and the legislative powers kept separate from the judicial, that II may be a gov- ernment of laws and not of men. In tho second place, I havo a broailer ground of It provides for the examination of witnesses, and now Invokes the compulsory process, not In the performance of the judicial duties of the Senate, hut simply lu the performance of legislative duty, lias the Senate any power over a distant ritlzen which It has not over an officer oi the Govern- ment hRre! And If It Is In the habit of treating these with consideration and respect. 1 do not see the- reason why a cltlien guilty of no of- fence should be treated differently. I think hi should be allowed to communicate what he may know In such a way as shall be mott In bannony with bis feellnga, and In which tbe of ail may be protected. At all eventa, If the Senate Is to exercise any tuch power. It tbould not be by virtue of a simple resolution, hut In pursuance of a general law which ahall have passed both Houses, and received the approval of {lie PiesWent. I submit that the Senate will not hastily undertake lo exercise a power wnlcn Is not sanctioned by the Constitution or by reason, and which is ebnoxlous to just criti- cism, W In Iteelf, so vast In lu consequences. If you send! this gentleman to prison vou a precedent for alleases hereafter, and declare that the should say, "ItIs Ing but Ibe lawli the law, Though are sgainst It, alllf It is my duty as a ciUrsn." lie tftaasht there was Ho cause for the alarm of the Sen ator for New-Hampshire, and he thought this individ- ual btd no particular claim to sympathy, eicept 1'. was tbat sympathy for a man who believed, against the judgment of tke whole country, that bis con- science was right Mr. HAU asked Mr. ClMTIHBU bad made this per given by the Cons Congress.
