The Speaker observed, that it was trud the House iiad determined that no business of a private nature should be iiurodut-ed after five o'clock, and that, as it-tniKht be found inconvenient inthe course of next week, as well as imaiediately after the holidays, if ihe House were to recur to its former regulation of ap|ioinling half-past four as the latest time for private business, he thought it would Ate more'conventetit if the Hon. Member were'tn posl-poiie Ills notice of motion uiilil live o'clock.^-[Hear, hear.)-It would be better to do so, especially as he understood that there now was buiiness of a private nature, which might engage the atlention of the House until there should be a fuller littendaiice of Hoir.
