Leicester Journal And Midland Counties General Advertiser (Newspaper) - April 7, 1854, Leicester, East Midlands Leicester journal Friday april 7, 1854. Imperial parliament. House of r Escay March 30. After a preliminary discussion As to the Reform of the a a a mesh Tobt asked lord Clarendon whether the rumours which he had seen in the newspapers As to the proceedings of the russians on the coast of circassian were True and whether the British Fleet were Sill Hying at beam. Instead of impelling the russian operations to which he referred. Lord Clah Knox replied that be knew nothing the operations of the russians on the East Coas a Black sea except what he had seen in t in new spa a a recent telegraphic Deq Sateh from constant mop t that to russian sail of the line had left North coast of the Black sea but by the Las a Ltd the Fleet which was still at Beicos Bay 1 Al a Admiral Lyons had just returned from a in which he had not seen a single russian the lord Chancellor then explained his intentions As to the testamentary Bill. Forma after some discussion the Bill was committed pro j Anna and ordered to be recommitted on monday. of Clarendon declined in reply Malmesbury to Lay before the House a copy of the Conven toc France England Aud Turkey recall it had not As vet been formally signed. Their lordships then adjourned. Friday March 31. Hie Earl of Aberdeen in reply to lord Roden stated that it was the intention of to majesty to appoint a Day to be set apart for prayer and humiliation on the occasion 0t the Earl of Clarendon Rose to move the address to the Queen in reply to her majesty a message announcing her intention of declaring War against Russia and congratulated the Moose on the enthusiasm and unanimity which pervaded the country on this momentous question. He would not again attempt to answer the objections of those who maintained that the government had done too much to promote or of those who asserted that it had done too Little to Avert War. With respect to the secret correspondence As to the designs of Russia which had been Laid before the House he must say that though the government would never have thought of revealing it unless they had been challenged to do so by the emperor of Russia still nothing could have come More opportunely for the justification of tile government than the production of that correspondence As showing the deceit Practised by Russia and Hie perfect honesty and Good Faith with which tile government had acted towards its allies. The Noble lord then gave a sketch of the series of events which had rendered War inevitable and had induced both France and England to consider it their Bounden duty to Rescue Turkov from the aggression of a overwhelming antagonist. On this subject an honourable understanding existed be Ween the two nations thou Gli it was not As yet in his Power to Lay the agreement with France on the table. There had also been some misunderstanding As to the signing of the convention at constantinople and it too could not be Laid before the House. With respect to the other Powers. Austria had behaved extremely Well and though some difference of opinion existed tween Austria and Prussia As to the course to be pursued he sincerely hoped that those Powers would ultimately see that their True interests consisted not Only in coming to an understanding with one another hut also in acceding to the policy adopted by the Western Powers. He trusted that at the close if not at the beginning of the impending struggle they would be found Side by Side with France and England Aud ready to re establish peace on a secure and solid foundation. That peace would neither be lasting nor solid unless while it cheeked the aggression of Russia on one Side it secured the rights and privileges of the Christian subjects of Hie Sultan on tile other. With these objects Iii View the Crown relied on the unanimous co operation of the legislature and humbly t is Tell that under the Blessing of heaven tile nation might look Forward with Confidence to a glorious Issue of the struggle on which it was about to enter. Hie Noble Earl then read the address which was an Echo of her majesty a message. The Earl of Derby fully admitted tile importance of the present moment when though her majesty a government had continued up to the last to Hope against Hope they wore about to carry on a great War. He feared the country whose enthusiasm was so excited by the Prospect of hostilities did not sufficiently a a realize a tile magnitude of the coining struggle Aud he hoped it would not grow impatient if after a Campaign or two it made Little Progress towards the object of its desires. It w As very important that we should clearly understand that we went to War to Abate the intolerable pretensions of Russia and to place the relations Between Russia and Turkey on the footing of two Independent states so that they should not remain As at present when a weak state nominally Independent was throttled and strangled by tile Protection of its powerful Neighbour. With respect to the secret Cor Respondence which had been Laid before parliament be could not go so far As lord Clarendon when he asserted that it justified the government and afforded proofs of the deception Practised on this country by tile emperor Nicholas. On tile contrary lie proceeded to show by examining that correspondence that it was the government which had deceived the emperor of Russia who he asserted had All along stated his pretensions Iii the plainest manner and continued to maintain them without the slightest deviation. Tile fact was that the emperor of Russia Ever since the time of his visit to this country in 1814, considered that to a perfect though private understanding As to tile Steps to he taken by England and Russia Iii the event of the dissolution of Turkey existed Between himself and the present Premier and a Goon As the present Cabinet came into Power the emperor acting on that belief proceeded to carry his plan against Turkey into execution. Regarding the question from this Point of View he could Only express his conviction that there would have been no War at All had not the present Premier unfortunately come into Power. The Noble Earl then paid an eloquent tribute to the conduct of the emperor Napoleon and after commenting Oil the ill Success which had attended the financial experiments of the government in air Rostov paid a High tribute to the Cha of or. Baines assuring him that his Collongues to Ujco Sider it a great misfortune to them and to the country Quot sex a is St or a 7 of r paid a warm compliment it Wold not be so to the Home or. Paces likewise expressed a Strong a a a t ability Industry Assiduity and Courtesy of the right Hon. G after some remarks by colonel Dunner Disraeli said the statement of or. Baines Hail left his honour untouched and congratulated the country upon his retaining an office in which be had acquired the Public Confidence while administering a most unpopular tin the order for the third leading of the income tax Hill. ,. Sir j. Oakington in calling attention to the circumstances which had led to the increase of this tax and to the intentions announced by the government w Ith respect to defraying the expenses of the War observed that the House was bound to consider whether the increased tax was not the consequence of the mismanagement of the finances whether the War was the sole cause of this obnoxious impost which the Chancellor of the exchequer had acknowledged to be unequal and inquisitorial in its nature. The main cause of the doubling of this tax was he said that we were about to commence a War with an empty exchequer and Why was this ? because its Chancellor had last year brought Forward a popular peace budget when he must have known that in All human probability a War with Russia was imminent. Or. Cardwell briefly replied to some of the financial objections of tile right lion baronet whose arguments he observed tended to prove the necessity of replenishing the exchequer. Or Malins dwelt upon the heavy loss sustained by the financial operations of the Chancellor of the exchequer whom he warned of the impracticability of carrying on the War by Means of direct taxation. Or. Laing pointed out the successful results of the remission of indirect taxes during the last to years and inferred that the great majority of the country would prefer a double income tax to reverting to a system of indirect taxation. Or. Vansittart and or. Greaves censured generally the financial policy of Hie government. The Bill was then read a third time and passed. The adjourned debate on the Nomine lion of the committee on Convent Al and monastic institutions was resumed and on the question that or. T. Chambers be a member or Goold moved to substitute for the names of or. To Chambers the Marquis of Stafford and or. Newdigate the names of or. Sotheron or. Ker Seymer and lord h vane. The motion was seconded by sir j. Fitzgerald. The House then divided on the question that the name of or. T. Chambers he retained which was carried by 117 against 60. On the second name that of or. Walpole or. Lucas moved that the further nomination be proceeded with upon that Day six months. Or. D. Of Connell seconded this motion declaring his Resolution to oppose this inquiry in every stage. Or. Massey said the House ought to be cautious in the Mode of conducting an inquiry into so delicate a subject. Hie members of the committee should be if possible entirely unconnected with party views upon this question on one Side or the other whereas tile list contained names of members who had committed themselves to Strong opinions antagonistic to the institutions themselves. He could not therefore support the committee As nominated by or. Chandlers. Or. Spooner complained of the obstructive proceedings of tile minority and of the intimidating language used by or. Lucas. A or. J. Ball insisted that the inquiry ought to lie Eon ducted with a decent regard to impartiality and the proposed committee would be regarded As nothing less than a packed committee. The debate was continued by or. Kinnaird or. Geoid and or. V. Scully who moved the adjournment of the debate but this motion was rejected by a Large majority. Or. Kennedy immediately moved that the House do adjourn and was seconded by Captain Bellew. Or. Serjeant slide resumed the debate upon Hie main question and adverted in Strong terms to the course pursued and the language used by air. Chambers. Upon a division the motion for adjournment was also negatived by a Large majority. Or. G. Moore then moved that the debate be adjourned and air. Chambers not objecting at that late hour the debate was adjourned accordingly. The other business having been disposed of the House adjourned at Quarter before 2 of clock. Friday March 31. Tile Queens message having been first read lord j. Russell moved the address to her majesty in answer to that message. He Rose he said with a deep sense of the solemn and awful importance of this motion. Afore than half a Century had elapsed since a message of similar import had been brought Down to the House the blessings of peace had for 40 years been diffused throughout tile land and it was Only from a Paramount sense of the necessity of the contest in which we were now engaged that he advised the House to reply in terms of assent to her majesty a most gracious message. In performing this task he should endeavour to confine himself to pointing out the course which Russia had pursued and to show that her schemes of aggrandizement at Hie expense of Turkey whose integrity and Independence were essential to the stability of the equilibrium of Power Iii Europe left this country no alternative but to interpose by Force of arms. Adverting to the great changes which had taken place in the internal administration of Turkey during the last 30 or 40 years especially the great improvement Iii the treatment of Hie Christian subjects of the Porte who were allowed the free enjoyment of their religion lie observed that this was an essential part of tile great question lie Cavise it would be apparent that it �a9 not the Prospect warned it against a false Economy in carrying on a War of of the decay or dissolution of Turkey which had invited this magnitude the Only result of such a system being the encroachments of the russian government but that that the Fortune and honour of the county would be risked on one fearful Lirow which if lost could never be retrieved. This was not Only a contest of enthusiasm but of perseverance and the government to which he gave full credit for All that it bad done to Avert War should Appeal to All classes which Felt a common interest in the National honour and at once pledge itself to carry on to the utmost this most just Aud righteous War. The Earl of Aberdeen presumed that the government must lie grateful for the kind of sup Ort which the Noble lord preferred. He Only hoped for a different sup sort from the country at Large. A great portion of the Noble lords speech had been directed against himself and lie even went so far As to say that if he lord Aberdeen had not been unfortunately at the head of the government this War would never have been heard of. In support of this opinion lie quoted those Jias sages from sir ii. Seymour a correspondence in which the emperor of Russia had expressed himself kindly with regard to him lord Aler Deeth. Well lie saw nothing to be ashamed of in those expressions and the Noble lord would do Well to remember that he too had not been without his compliments and that on the Noble lords accession to office the Only austrian minister who had Ever let eau the hitter foe of England had written to congratulate the Noble lord and that his foreign Secretary lord Malmesbury bad returned a despatch full of gratitude. For Bis own part lie could Only say that the kind expressions of the emperor of Russia had received no such grateful recognition from him. The Noble Earl then proceeded to expose the malignant accusations which had been made against him in a weekly periodical supposed to be Iii the Confidence of the Noble Earl Ami Bis friends opposite and too fesses that in common with the late sir Robert Peel and the Duke of Wellington lie bad been a Friend of Ute russian Alliance because he finely believed that it was calculated to Advance the last interests of England. Even now when compelled to make War lie should carry it on with the utmost Vigour Only Lor the Sake of securing a so Ioddy lie Nee and like the purest Patriot of our civil w a who even w Hen buckling on his Armour murmured a a peace lie Nee a a prayer for a return to peace would Ever lie uppermost in ins mind. The Earl of Malmesbury complained of the unstated manlike Way in which lord Aberdeen bail treated the question and appealed to lord Granville to confirm a statement of Enid Derby As to the mysterious Way in which the memorandum of 1814 Laid been handed from one minister for foreign affairs to another. Lord Granville confirmed this statement Blit said that lie was surprised on Reading the document in question to find that it contained so Little. After some Oli Serrations from words Brougham and Hardwicke Laird Lansdowne defended the course pursued by the government in Winch in everything done or omitted to by done lie entirely concurred. Flip address was then agreed to unanimously Aud their lordships adjourned. Monday april 3. After a number of petitions against the new testamentary Bill bad been presented by lairds Brougham Wyn Ford Dom Highmore and Nelson i lie lord Chancellor read to the House her majesty s most gracious answer to their let re slip is Loy it address. Lord Aberdeen gave notice that on tuesday the Lith. The fear that the old system of Russia of gradually depriving Turkey of her provinces and interfering More and More with Lier internal government would be no longer successful had impelled her upon the premature execution of Lier schemes. Lord John then proceeded to give an outline of the transactions which had terminated in the existing position of affairs keeping out of View he said the dispute about the holy places which was not the cause but the pretext of russian aggression that dispute having been settled with Hie consent of All the parties. In considering the relations lie tween Russia and Turkey we must always keep in View be remarked that the Empress Catherine obtained from the Sultan an article concerning Hie Christian subjects of the Porte generally and that by the 7th article of the treaty of a Ainardi in 1774, the Porte promised to a protect constantly the Christian religion and its churches but no special privilege of interference with the Ordinary administration of the Sultan with regard to that portion of its subjects was stipulated for. Approaching the events of the last year lord John gave a succinct narrative of the course of the negotiations from the termination of the dispute res meet Iii the holy places which was followed by further demands on the part of russian by the note of Prince Alen Selikoff requiring a formal stipulation of privileges and immunities Tor the christians in future without limitations by tempting offers made to the Porte mingled with threats and by the deceitful assurances of count Nesselrode. He then adverted to the publication Iii the journal of is. Peters Burgh of an article referring to a confidential communication Between this government and Russia and imputing to the former the being party to a proposal for a partition of Turkey which rendered it indispensable that what bail really taken place should be known to the world and be thought the country bad no reason to regret the publication of these documents. Thence it appeared that in 1841, the emperor of Russia declared that the time might come w Hen a dissolution of the turkish Empire must take place in 1853 he insisted that the moment of dissolution was at hand and that it was necessary for the English government to agree with Bim As to what should lie done. The answer was wore the world that we could be no party to any project of the kind. Recurring then to the Mission of Prince Alen Selikoff he resumed the narrative of events constantinople the communications Between the sultans government and Hie four l Owers the Resolution at which the Porte arrived the threats of Prince Meus Clickoff and his departure from constantinople. Her majesty government he observed thinking that tile time had then arrived when the inde it end Enco of Turkey was in danger directed the British Fleet at Malta to proceed to tin neighbourhood of constantinople and if necessary to the bosporus a a proof that her majesty a government were determined to support the Sultan a against an unjust aggression. When intelligence reached St. Petersburg that the demands of Prince Alen Selikoff had been rejected a most peremptory note from count Nesselrode was transmitted to constantinople threatening thai in default of compliance with these demands the danubian principalities should be occupied by russian troops. The demands were still refused Aud the invasion immediately took place. The Sultan was nevertheless advised by lord Stratford not to make this invasion a conus Belli and while negotiations were proceeding to strengthen his forces by sea and land. Further negotiations led to the Vienna note which gave to Tho emperor of Russia every lie should move the adjournment of the House till to liars i Security lie could wish for the Christian subjects of Hie Daytin till inst. Porte by insuring to them All their privileges and Tinmu Hie Church building acts amendment Bill was read a cities under tin Sanction of an Assurance to All the five second time on the motion of lord Len Browby and referred Powers of Europe including Russia. But the object of Tho to a select committee after some observations from the j emperor of Russia was that there should be a treaty Bishop of Iii Ilion. Whereby he would have the Power of interfering with the Hie testamentary Bill then passed through committee j Sultan Iii relation to the Christian subjects of the Porte after some opposition from lords Wynford and by. Leonard s. A some other business was then despatched and their lordships adjourned. Tat Aday april 4. Their lordships sat Tor a Short time but the business brought before the House was exclusively of a routine de Kerit Ion. House of , March 30. Answers were Given by lord John Russell and the attorney general to various quest ions mostly by Poth Emieal relating to tin Maimer in which the vessels and property of British subjects As Well As neutrals would lie treated Iii i articular circumstances under i la limitations put Biller majesty a declaration upon the International code during the War. Laird j. Russell read the terms of the address to her majesty which he proposed to move in return to her majesty a message. Colonel Harcourt in moving for a return of the number of married women belonging to the regiments ordered Oil foreign service married with and without leave and the number of children called attention to the condition id the wives and families of soldiers ordered abroad which required lie said some permanent arrangement and he suggested a plan for i hat purpose. Al r. 8. Ii Erbert made no objection to the motion. After a few words from colonel Lindsay Hie motion was agreed to. Air. Baines requested to be allowed to state some circumstances relative to his connexion with the poor Law Board and to Hie settlement and removal Bill. He had framed this Bill upon the recommendations of the committee of 1847, and had confined its provisions to tile abolition in England and Wales of removal on the ground of settlement. When i was asked whether the Hill would extend to Irish paupers Iii England lie had replied distinctly Iii the negative. He had always been of opinion that the Irish question was not Ripe for legislation and holding this opinion he could not help thinking that if he retained office his efficiency and character As a Public servant might la greatly impaired and the measure itself endangered. Upon this ground and this alone he resigned his office. Having read a letter from lord Aberdeen requesting him to suspend his decision or. Bailies went on to say that he had reconsidered the matter and determined to refer to two friends the question whether he could with honour to himself and without weakening his efficiency As a Public servant and without disadvantage to the Public service retain his office. They were of opinion that be could and lie bad accordingly qualified his Resolution and consented to remain in office for the present. After a few words from or. French so that Hie question was whether Hie sovereignty of 12,000,000 Jie Ople should lie transferred from their of n to a foreign Sovereign. The Vienna note was modified the construction put Ilion it by Russia being different from that of the English and French governments and the russian government Iii a confidential communication having disclosed the fact that it was prepared to accept the note in one sense and to upon it in another an interpretation to which he could not lie said apply a Milder term than that of fraudulent. Hie modified note was rejected a declaration of War by Turkey followed and he could riot say that the Sultan had not a just cause of War. Still terms of great moderation were recommended by the four Powers and adopted by the Porte they were forwarded to St. Petersburg with the recommendation of the austrian government but they were set aside Aud other terms were proposed by Russia which the Vienna conference deemed inadmissible. All Hope of an amicable arrangement seemed now to be at an end and Hie remaining question was whether or no we should maintain the position we had hitherto occupied taking no part in the struggle it was obvious that after Russia had rejected All terms her intention was to prosecute War and the governments of England and France had come to the determination to propose to Russia to evacuate the principalities within a limited time informing her that her refusal would be equivalent to a declaration of War. This was done no answer was returned and England and f Ranee considered that there was now no other alternative hut War. Her majesty s ministers had decided at once to advise her majesty to Send a message to both houses of parliament and at the same time to Issue a declaration of War. He might he asked lie continued two questions. I he first was with what allies we were about to undertake the War. In the first place we were acting in cordial concurrence with France and he hoped shortly to Lav a convention with France Lic fore the House. Austria and Prussia had concurred with us not Only in protocols but in their recommendation to the emperor of Russia to accede to the summons to evacuate the principalities hut while it was perfectly Clear what was the interest of Tho great German Powers there was no document or formal agreement that could be Laid before parliament pledging them to take part in the War. At the same time those Powers bad expressed an entire agreement with us As to the necessity of maintaining the Independence and integrity of Turkey and when her majesty a government bad asked what in Case of a rupture would be the conduct of government appeared to Bim to lie too narrow taking in German interests alone he trusted that a Short time would bring it to the inclusion that the distr Lawnee of the balance of Power Aud the aggrandizement of Russia were matters of concern to Prussia As Well As to other Powers. With regard to the second question As to what were the object of the War be could say no More than he considered it his duty to say and he should think he departed from his duty if lie at Quot All restricted the government of England at any time from assenting to terms of peace which the government deemed honourable and just and no terms could be just or honourable that did not provide for the Security of the turkish Empire. Air. La Yard said no Man could have listened to the speech of the Noble lord with More satisfaction than he had done and his satisfaction would have been unmixed but for doubts As to the sentiments of some of his colleagues the head of the government having a moment Lief re Iii another place expressed sentiments if not diametrically opposed to at variance with those to which Laird j. Russell bad just Given utterance. He then took a very wide View of the Eastern question beginning with the year 1829, arguing that lord Aberdeen had at an Early Date abetted the policy of Russia laying Down the doctrine that she had a right to put her own construction upon her own treaties. In 1844, when his lordship was again foreign minister the emperor of Russia had almost proposed a scheme of partition of tile turkish Empire. From an examination of the contents of tile Blue books he contended that the opinions he or. Layard had expressed last year As to the views and designs of Russia were fully confirmed and without charging our government with Connivance he characterized their policy As hybrid Between Connivance and credulity. He endeavoured to show by minute verbal criticisms a correspondence Between the substance of certain articles published in the time and the contents of despatches known Only to the members of the Cabinet and he censured with great warmth this supposed disclosure of state secrets. He inferred that there were two parties in the Cabinet whose views upon foreign politics were antagonistic Al. He censured the proceedings of the government with relation to the Fleet in the bosporus lie in weighed against the policy of wringing ungenerous concessions from the so much abused turks and warned ministers that they were Likely to he misled in their expectations regarding the conduct of Austria la hat he wanted was he said that the government should announce that they would carry on the War with the object of preventing Russia from repeating these aggressions and restrain Ber within certain defined limit. He was clearly of opinion that if we had last year after the affair of sino be gent our Fleet into the Black sea peace might have been made at once whereas we had entered late into the Field in a country with few resources and infested with one of the worst of fevers. He wished the affairs of this country were in the hands of a really Strong and United government Hiat would carry it successfully through the contest instead of a state of things where All was hesitation vacillation and doubt. Or. Bright thought this was a fitting Opportunity for any one who differed from Theo Ourse taken by the government to state his reasons and Clear himself from the responsibility incurred by the authors Aud supporters of the avowed policy of the Cabinet in entering upon this War. The turkish Empire he insisted was in a condition of decay and of anarchy which had attained a chronic character. Lord j. Russell had repeated the words a a integrity and Independence of Turkey a As connected talked of the balance of Power a phrase which no one could comprehend and of which he desired an explanation and which was not practically recognized by Europe. Air. Bright Drew a very discouraging picture of the probable eventualities of the War a the annihilation of the turkish Empire and the commercial and financial difficulties and embarrassment of England. He was amazed he said at the policy which the government Hail pursued and was Lorri Fiedt at the results to which it roust necessarily Lead. After Brief speeches from or. J. Ball the Marquis of Granby and lord d. Stuart lord Palmerston said he could have wished that in a debate upon a question like this matters of detail arising out of the negotiations had liven postponed to another occasion and that the Queen message should have been responded to unanimously without mixing up with an Assurance of loyalty and Devotion to the Crown topics of a minor and subordinate character. He did not deny the right but he must be excused if he did not follow the example. After noticing in a cursory and somewhat sarcastic manner the allusions made by or. Layard to this journal the Noble lord observed that the question was whether her majesty a government were to receive the support of parliament in the contest in which we were engaged. The views of Russia upon Turkey he observed were not of yesterday for a length of time the policy of the court of St. Petersburg which it had pursued systematically had been to obtain Possession of european Turkey not hastily or prematurely but by profiting by every Opportunity. He did not blame the russian government on this account. An aggressive policy when pursued by legitimate Means might be condemned and opposed but was no reproach to the government that had adopted it provided it acted without concealment subterfuge or fraud. But the course pursued by Russia in the recent transactions had not been of this straightforward character. Russia had speculated upon the impossibility of an Alliance Between us and France Aud Austria and thought an Opportunity now uttered to make a great step which bad been pursued with great ability. If by a Concession of the Sultan Russia had become the arbitrator of the whole Christian population of Turkey it would have placed the sovereignty of that portion of his subjects at the discretion of the emperor of Russia. It was impossible he thought for any Man capable of drawing conclusions to doubt that there was a settled intention on the part of Russia to overthrow the turkish Empire. Was it possible it was then asked to maintain an Empire which or. Bright represented to be in a state of rapid decay ? in reply he would Appeal to the events of the last eight months and comparing the resistance offered by the turks to Hie russian forces wit i their defence Iii former years he would ask in return whether Turkey had not shown proofs of vitality which few would have expected she would display. Among the reasons which had influenced Russia to strike the blow the improvements in Turkey which would tend to withdraw the mass of her Christian population from russian influence Tiad no doubt it Eliare since it led the emperor to fear that that population was slipping from his grasp and that Turkey was getting too Strong. But the real question was not what we might wish to see established in the turkish Empire but what for the interests of All Europe ought not to be established namely the Transfer of that country to the sceptre of Russia. Or. Bright had asked what were our interests in the War and what we meant by the balance of Power ? Hie idea of the balance of Power was familiar to and Practised by All Mankind it was the doctrine of self defence and self preservation combined with that sagacity and foresight which Woald anticipate and prevent danger before it thundered at our door. There were things worse than War Aud lord Palmerston suggested How or. Bright might convince himself of this feet by a simple process of mercantile accounts sooner or later he was aware he said that Hie Equality of races in Turkey must be accomplished but the question at present was whether Europe was to lie pros trate at the feet of one arbitrary Power which already Estrid the Globe or that Power should be taught that there were limits to the ambition even of a Czar and he believed there existed Iii the Powers of Europe a determination to resist Hie encroachments of any one Power and that this country was Able As it was willing by sea and land to defend the liberties of Europe Aud the Independence of nations. Or. Disraeli Rose to support the address considering that to declare War was a real prerogative of the Crown and that this was not an occasion to enter into matters of policy but that they should rally round the throne and leave the discussion of questions of policy for another occasion. He observed that there were two classes of opinions among statesmen one believing in the vitality of Turkey the other that she was in a state of hopeless decrepitude. Lord Alverdeen he said had never concealed that lie was a disciple of the last class never pretending that he believed Iii the vitality of Turkey. It was on record he said that his lordship had agreed with the russian government hint the turkish Force in Hie Mediterranean should be blockaded and it was owing solely to the Duke of Wellington that that agreement had been repudiated. Or. Disraeli called the attention of the House to the russian memorandum of 1844�?which implied lie argued that there had been an agreement Between the government and the emperor of Russia and a proposal for the partition of Turkey. He endeavoured to establish a connexion Between this supposed secret understanding and the present political position of this country which he attributed to a divided Cabinet with discordant opinions. He described the effect which he supposed to have Lieen produced upon tile russian emperor by the appointment of lord Aberdeen to be Bead of the English Cabinet since the emperor bad upon that event instantly reversed his policy and bad made a proposition relative to Turkey Iii Hie very spirit of the document of 1844. He maintained that a conflict lie tween British sentiments and russian sentiments bad brought the country to its present position that the War might have been prevented and i hat it was owing to the Accident of lord Aberdeen being at the Bead of the government. Land j. Russell replied shortly to or. Layard and or. Disraeli and after a few words from colonel Sib to corp the address was agreed to Rem. Dis. On the motion of lord j. Russell seconded by air. Disraeli the address was ordered to be presented to her majesty by the whole House. Some other business was despatched and the House adjourned at one of clock until monday. Monday april 3. At the time of private business a discussion of great Imp Orlance arose upon the sur Jet of railway legislation on tile third Reading of the North Loudon railway Bill. In reply to an inquiry by Captain Sunbelt sir j Graham contradicted the report that the operations of the Black sea Fleet were delayed for want of Coal Aud stated that intelligence had been received that Day Liat the beet had entered the Black sea and was in the neighbourhood of Varna. On the order for going into committee on the bribery ac., Bill air. V. Smith moved that the Bill be referred to a select committee intending to propose if this motion were agreed to that the bribery prevention Bill and the controverted elections ac., Bill should be referred to the same committee. The questions involved Iii these three Bills be observed concerned not merely tin convenience but the character and honour of the House and the provisions required great caution and deliberation. This motion was seconded by or. Deeds and opposed by lord j. Russell who said its adoption would be equivalent to Post mining the measure until another session since the Bills would not come Back from the select com Mittee before May or june. Air. Walpole thought on the whole it was not advisable to Send the Bills to a select committee. Colonel Sibthorp uttered a sweeping denunciation against All the three Bills. Air. Phinn supported the motion for a reference observing that not fewer than to statutes were wholly or Iii part repealed by the bribery Bill and portions upon which difficult questions had Arisen were incorporated in it a process demanding careful consideration. Tile motion for reference to a select Coin Mil tee which was opposed by or. Pigott or. Napier and or. Rosaley and supported by or. I. Butt sir h. Willoughby or. Packe and lord hot Liam upon a division was negatived by 146 to 76, and the House thereupon went into committee on the Bill. Two of the clauses occupied the entire evening and the chairman was ordered to report Progress. Certain tells were advanced a stage and the House and Joun cd at a Quarter past 12 o clock. Tuesday april 4. In reply to a question from or. J. Sadleir air. B. Osborne said there was no ground for imputing deliberate fraud to the messes. Sturgeon in the Hay they had supplied to tile admiralty. Or. Pagan moved for leave to bring in a Bill to make provisions for the better government of the University of Dublin for the establishment and maintenance of a second of All religious denominations of the honours degrees benefits endowments emoluments and offices in the said Queens College. According to the present system roman catholics and dissenters were excluded from any participation Iii Hie honours and rewards of a University so richly endowed. Instances certainly had occurred in which roman catholics had proved Recreant to their Faith in order to compete for these honours and he was sorry to say that in such cases the authorities had closed their eyes to such time serving and irreligious practices. It was with a View of remedying this state of things that he proposed his Bill to the consideration of the House. Or g. A. Hamilton said lie would give his decided and most uncompromising opposition to this Bill. Or. Hume supported the motion. Air. Whiteside said the Bill was nothing less than confiscation for it proposed to take property intended for one purpose and apply it to another and totally different one. No just grounds had been Laid for the motion which he hoped would be at once rejected by the House. Or. J. Fitzgerald said the object of Hie Bill was to have the University of Dublin thrown open to the roman catholics without taking away one shilling of its revenues or interfering with its education of the clergy of the established Church. Or. Napier was of opinion that the effect of the motion if carried would be to destroy the Constitution of the University which had gone the utmost length consistent with its own essential foundation or. I. Butt As one of the professors of the University could declare that As far As his experience extended lie never knew of a roman Ca Fiolic giving up Bis Faith for the purpose of obtaining a scholarship. The motion would have the effect of breaking up the whole University system he did not think there was any unreasonable restriction upon the admission of roman catholics but at All events he was convinced it would be better to have new scholarships and fellowships for the roman catholics rather than interfere with the existing foundations with All their hallowed associations. Or. George hoped the Day would never come when funds devoted for a special purpose should be applied to purposes foreign to that Tor which they were intended. Or. P. Of Brien said there were obstructions in the University which ought to be removed but at the same Sime admitted that it had shown a greater disposition to meet the spirit of the times than either of the English universities. After some observations from or. Fagan in reply the motion was negatived without a division. Or. Bowyer moved for leave to bring in a Bill to Amend the Law regarding actions for criminal conversation and tile Protection to women in such actions. The Law of Protection England did not like the Law of other countries treat adultery As a crime and in his View it was an abomination to insist upon actions for damages As a preliminary for obtaining a divorce. He therefore proposed by his Bill that no damages should be hereafter awarded but that in Hie event of a verdict for the plaintiff the court should have the Power of imposing a Fine upon the defendant. In All actions for Crim. Con. The wife was unheard and a verdict for her husband was to tiling less Titan destruction to her. Iii order to remedy this state of things he proposed that no action should be brought with out notice being Given to the woman and that at the trial she should be allowed to appear by counsel and witnesses. Or. Fitzroy in the absence of lord Palmerston would not oppose the introduction of the Bill but guarded himself against being considered favourable to its principle. Leave was then Given to bring in the Bill. Or. Bellow moved that an Humble address be presented to her majesty praying for the establishment of postal communication with the Island of Airan West coast of Ireland. Sir j. Young resisted the motion on Tho ground that Tho Revenue to be derived would not equal the expense. On a division or. Bellew motion was carried against ministers by a majority of 92 to 80. Sir g. B. Pec hell moved an address for returns of All vessels their names and tonnage seized on suspicion of being engaged in the slave Trad with the name of the Captain Aud the ship that captured the same from the 1st Day of january 1853, specifying the Date of capture the latitude and Longitude and whether with slaves on Board or not and of the number of slaves captured during the same period and of her majesty a ships and vessels employed on Hie coast of Cuba for the prevention of the slave Trade from Hie 28th Day of july 1853 the last return to the latest dates. Or. Hume hoped that Spain would be compelled to adhere to her for putting an end to the slave Trade. Or. H. Baillie thought it would be better that Cuba should fell into the hands of the United states than that it should still be kept up As a slave Mart sir j. Graham said the efforts to suppress the slave Trade on tile coast of Africa would be energetically continued but he must say he could not enter into the views of or. Baillie on that subject. Or. Cobden expressed himself in opinion As agreeing with or. H. Baillie. The motion was then agreed to. Sir w. Smith moved Tor copies of All correspondence lie tween government departments and the contractors for Hay during the last two months and brought under the consideration of the House the delay that Lias taken place in investigating the late alleged frauds in the Supply of Hay for government service. A discussion ensued in the course of which much was said in vindication of Hie messes. Sturgeon from the charges against them but air. B. Osborne while acquitting them of wilful and open fraud insisted that they had been guilty of culpable neglect. Sir a. Smith gave notice that be would on wednesday move for a committee to inquire into the whole subject feeling quite convinced that the Alessis. Sturgeon were altogether blameless in the transaction. The motion a then agreed to. The remaining business was then disposed of and the House amounted Mon 4stic and Convent Al institutions. From the press on tuesday last when the order of the Day for the nomination of the committee of enquiry into the state and condition of monastic and Convent Al institutions we read. Or. Bowyer moved the House to rescind the Resolution which it had deliberately adopted by a great majority after a debate in which leading members on either Side had taken part. The Hon. Member admitted that the course he took was unusual As Well he might seeing that sir Robert Peel Iii the plenitude of his despotic Power Only once insisted on such a degrading of Shulti fiction. The reasons by which or. Bowyer attempted to support his Morion were not less strange his the motion itself. A a when tilt Resolution was adopted we were not at War now we Are therefore done to at such a crisis insult and alienate the roman catholics of England and insult alienate we disclaim the one Aud do not apprehend the other. In a recently published protest against the enquiry we recognise names of which England is proud for those Aho Bear them have hereditary Aud historical claims to her respect. A Howard May sign the protest but we have not forgotten that in another reign which future historians May at a Distant period deem not More glorious than the present when As now a Queen sate on the English throne Aud roman Catli Olics had to choose bet Ween allegiance to Rome and their country the supremo pontiff Ami their native Sovereign to a Man they were True to England and Elizabeth. Ail Earl of Arundel May profess the roman Catholic Faith but so did a Howard of Effingham who led our fleets against the Armada of Spain and god forbid that whether in peace or War we should insult our roman Catholic fellow subjects either by our legislation or by questioning their Fidelity to their Queen and their country even Laird John Russell though he supported or. Bowyer motion emphatically disclaimed his reasoning and without illustrating it by Iii own course on the Reform Bill admitted that our policy should not depend on temporary and accidental circumstances such As peace or War but on considerations of Justice and expediency. The honourable and Learned Niemier having thus placed the roman catholics in an advantageous Light before Hie House by insinuating that their loyalty might be shaken if member did their duty and voted according to their con victim oils next addressed himself to the real question at Issue viz., is inquiry into these institutions just and exp Dicot ? assuming that a committee would be nominated As a matter of constitutional Law he wanted to know in what position those venerable men the monks would be placed if they were culled before a committee ? a does or. Bowyer claim for roman catholics exemptions from liabilities to which other classes Are subject ? unless he claims for roman catholics such privileges we answer his question specifically a those Vener Atilo men will stand in the same pm Sitison a the Cor oration of the City of lion Don the venal voters and the Irish members. It May indeed be questionable How far these a a schools for scandal a sitting in permanence May be desirable hut our present impression is that each must depend upon its particular circumstances Aud that a Strong and general befit f that an abuse exists is sufficient to warrant an inquiry when to bring a specific accusation May be difficult and expensive. That such a belief does exist in the Case of monasteries and convents no one has Ever denied but the noblemen and gentlemen who signed the protest say a a the charges against the convents of women have Long since been satisfactorily refuted a hut even if that were so and if the statement by colonel North of the occurrence at Banbury was founded on erroneous information still the fact would remain that the Rev. Or. Wilson the vicar received a letter purporting to come from a miss Fitzalan the inmate of a nunnery alleging that she was about to lie taken to Belgium against her will hint the vicar applied to colonel North a a magistrate to interfere. That colonel North on consulting lawyers found that the writ of Hareas Corpus was useless and inoperative that be then wrote to the Home Secretary on the subject and that sir George Grey told him he could do nothing a Hie nun May not have been confined the letter May have been fictitious the whole tale May have been one of a last pleasantly railed by lord John a Russell a a Des Contes do Coq a vane a but the acts of colonel North remain and tin letter of sir Georgo Grey is genuine. From these it follows that in England if the inmate of a Convent _ detained there against her will no effectual Legal Agency exists by which she can be released and this we any is condition in which no subject should tie left. It is the duty of Hie state to protect those who cannot protect themselves. We do so in the Case of factory children and we do so in the Rase of Lunatic asylums not because we believe that Many iniquities occur but because it is possible that some would occur if no Protection were thrown around the helpless. Many other reasons we might Advance in support of the Inq Nirve but this is the chief that the inmates of Nunn eries Are practically deprived of one of the main safeguards of that personal Freedom which is the Birthright of Britain. And when or. Bowyer talks of a every englishman a House being his Castle a he forgets that against private a a castles a the writ of Hareas Corpus is efficacious that against Nunn eries it is not and that there is some times a striking resemblance Between a Castle and a prison. As the noblemen and gentlemen who signed the protest sex Irest la refuse a a to argue the Point a we presume it is he cause they think that or. Bowyer has exhausted All Hie objections that ran be urged against the inquiry and they without argument believe that a a there Are sufficient constitutional and Legal reasons for Hie rejection of this proposal without calling upon Catli Olics to Deal with it As a religious question a we Trust that we after argument and equally omitting the religious element have also Given some constitutional and Legal reasons for its adoption. Whatever be the ultimate Tate of the proposal or. Bowyers amendment was negatived by a Large majority notwithstanding the characteristic support it received from the Irish members who from seven till eleven clamoured for a division and during the rest of the night for an adjournment of the debate. Austria the answer was at the time satisfactory and his.

Tile bulletin Des Lois has published the following decree a a a Napoleon have decreed and do decree As follows a our minister Secretary state of finance is authorised to make an Advance of ten millions to Hie ottoman government. This Advance will Bear interest and will be repaid either from the produce of the first loan which May lie contracted by Tho ottoman government or Iii the repeated rumours of disasters to the turkish army As Well As to the Allied fleets in the Black sea have induced the government to interfere and accordingly Hie Moni eur of saturday has a paragraph to the following effect a a a too much care cannot be taken to guard against the news which malevolence or speculation invents. Thus it has been said that tile government was going to Send a corps of observation to the Rhine Liat the russian army would be at constantinople before the French and English troops could get into Tine that the Squadron of Brest had been forced by a tempest to return to Toulon and that English and French frigates had been sunk in the Black sea by the russians. All these rumours Are quite devoid of foundation. The government Wheeli is perfectly aware of the anxiety of the Public cannot better respond to it than by publishing All the news Good or bad which it shall the archbishop of Paris Lins addressed a Long pastoral letter to the clergy and faithful of the Diode is in which he orders Liat prayers Shalt be offered up for the Success of the French arms in the East. A a the Central jewish consistory of France has Petitioner the emperor to extend the privileges about to be obtained for the christians in Turkey to jews who May be subjects of the Sultan. Austria. Austria has demanded from Russia that her subjects in the principalities shall not be compelled to take the russian paper Russia Ayd to beet. Tile subject of highest importance at the present moment is the convention just concluded Between tile Porte and its allies. The condition which is said to fend the Porte not to accept peace without the consent of its allies is not unnecessary for although the unlocked for successes on the Danube have raised the spirits of the people so that any Concession to the hated and now somewhat despised enemy might be dangerous yet there is not wanting a party willing to yield to Russia if not All she demands yet More than the friends of Europe can approve and quite enough to Render the sacrifices of the Western Powers useless and their influence a mockery. It is a matter for satisfaction that the question is decided and that we May rest in Confidence that when an Allied Force shall land on the shores of the bosporus no underhand Means will be allowed to arrest it ignominiously and the settlement of the greatest political question of our time cannot be frustrated by the weakness Hie ignorance or the corruption of an individual. But of still greater consequence Are the clauses granting Equality bedtime Hie Law to Tho Christian subjects of the Sultan. These concessions were stoutly resisted by the orthodox party. Tile greater part of the night was spent in endeavours to bring tile turkish authorities to tile Point of grunting what the Barest Justice demands and without which neither policy nor humanity would justify the of our blood Ami treasure. Yet with the knowledge that ii refusal would alienate their Only friends and Concession sweep away the pretexts of their bitterest Netty Mussulman Pride could hardly be brought to bind itself to tile Frank or tile Elevation of Tho Myall. However orders have been Given to treat christians with respect and it May he impede Liat when once tins great crisis is Piast a new Era May commence for this unhappy country and Legal rights prepare the Way for that social Equality and Community of feeling with out which Hie Empire must always be weak and a door continually open for fresh attacks and renewed assumptions on the part of the Northern Power. The correspondent of the morning Herald writing on tile 20th ult. Says a a a the following arrangements have been taken with the Porte regarding the first expedition of 10,000 British troops. The turkish government is bound to furnish daily�?10,0001b. Of bread first Quality 10,0001b of meat half Lief half Mutton 30,0001b. Of Wood 15,000lb. Of Barley and 15,00011. Of Straw. These articles will lie paid for monthly by Hills on the London Treasury. The too Are to be lodged in the 8 gracious Barrack a situated in the turkish Quarter called Daout Pasha and the military governor of constantinople has received orders to repair that establishment. The troops Are expected to be Here about the beginning of april. Nothing has yet been decided Almont tile French expedition. Tile ouly positive information we have is that similar a Range Ineata will be made and that the Barracks of Scutari will be Given up by the Porte. The news of the passage of the Danube which we mentioned last week Are confirmed. The correspondent of the times remarks a a it is generally regarded As a defensive movement to maintain their line of operations and provide against any casualties that May take place at the Mouths of tile Danube or in Bessarabia. It is quite Clear that the Centre of the russians operations Bas been displaced by Hie establishment of the Headquarters at Hir Sova. The russians Are about half Way from the Point Liere the turks appear to have established Ute first real line of defence Between the Dai Iula and the Blacksea with their left resting on Ras Sova their right on to Stedje and their Centre at Marabou Mon. Private telegraphic despite lies announce that so tar from Omar pasta being taken tile movement it had been foreseen and no doubt provided for As it is stated that 20,000 men have marched from Silistria and another body from Shumle with Tim object of strengthening the position which already had from 25,000 to 30,000 men to defend it. Am a Rich. A the Toronto colonist contains some curious particulars of a scheme for the invasion of Canada by the russians with the Sanction of the United learn from t Nis journal that letters passing through the Quebec Post office for the autocrat himself have been intercepted by the authorities in pursuance of a order from the British government and Are in poised to have have revealed a plot of remarkable magnitude and audacity. The programme offing foul conspiracy is stud to he that some thousands of russians veterans too old in the service to desert it and influenced by Large promises should be introduced into the United states in the dress of careful emigrants without their nationality being declared. In tile meantime a depot of arms is to be formed on Hie British Frontier and at one moment tile whole body of itis Gui de cossacks Are to Rush by rail unarmed and unannounced to tile crossing Point there to assume weapons badges and colours and at once dash into Canada and attempt Quebec by a Coop de main from the Plains. La thing will be done so easily that no ground of Surprise will be left except that it had never been thought of before. With so promising a plan before them it could hardly have been expected that the russian government should trouble the Nisei to inquire whether they could count upon the consent or Connivance of general Pierre. But it is in vain to rely upon any want of caution in those profound schemers. They had made Assurance doubly sure. A a it waa farther suggested a Iii the intercepted Cones Ononce a that some attempts Al mid be made by the russian government to bring about a secret understanding with the United states for the partition of British territory in America so to be arranged a to leave the question of slavery in its present position that is to give is much to the slave states As to the free states the sacrifice of the West indies and if need be a Large sine of Mexico to be included in such an arrangement Between the two in favour of the probability of such an agreeable understanding a this being entered into by the american government Hie colonial authority shrewdly Ami charitably observes we ought not to forget that the United states is the Power Bieh Vivo rated in 1812, the doctrine that the bag of a Neutral covers the cargo even in reference to goods contraband of War.
