The question put.

Mr. Brotherton

moved, that the House do now adjourn.

Mr. Ward:

Considering the circumstances under which the writ is moved, the notice which has been given regarding it, and the importance of the motion, I must confess that I did not expect to see it moved at such a time in the morning, and in such a House. Therefore I shall have much pleasuse in seconding the motion of my hon. Friend.
