MR. VERNON SMITH
said, he hoped the House would have no objection to read this Bill a second time that evening without any discussion; and in that case he would undertake to postpone the Committee until next week, when the objections to the measure, all of which he believed related to points of detail, could be best considered.
§ SIR HENRY WILLOUGHBY
said, he wished to know when the Government would be prepared to lay before the House an authentic account of the state of our Indian finance.
THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
said, that a Return, containing ample information upon that subject, was being printed, and would in a few days be laid on the table of the House.
