On the Motion that the Corporate Funds' Bill be committed—

Mr. Fyler

objected to proceeding with the Bill at that late hour, and moved the adjournment of the House.

The House divided: For the adjournment 20; Against it 43. The House resolved into a Committee upon the Bill.

The Marquis of Chandos

renewed the opposition to the proceeding with the bill, and moved that the Chairman report progress, and ask leave to sit again.

Mr. George Dawson

urged the adjournment of the consideration of the question.

Sir James Graham

admitted, that it would be very inexpedient to fight the Bill at that late hour, and advised his hon. friend (Mr. Spring Rice) to give way.

House resumed.
