Order for Third Reading read.


said, he had remonstrated against the Government proceeding with the present measure. It had been introduced without any notice to the citizens of Dublin, or any person officially connected with that city. He had felt it his duty to protest against it, but knew perfectly well that he had no chance of defeating it; and he could only congratulate the Government on the new ally whom they had acquired in his hon. Colleague, who would, nevertheless, he apprehended, be called to account by his constituents on his return to Ireland. He believed a more wanton or unreasonable attack had never been made on the franchise of the people.

Bill read 3°, and passed.

The House adjourned at half-after One o'clock.
