HC Deb 16 July 1858 vol 151 c1607

stated, that as he could not regard the division come to on Monday night as any indication of the real feeling of the House upon the important subject of the Slave Trade; and as he had received various communications bearing upon the question, it was his intention to renew the discussion in the course of next Session. He trusted that upon that occasion no attempt would be made to import into the debate any of those acrimonious and personal observations, or any of those unjustifiable imputations, which were so freely used on Monday night by noble and hon. Members. He himself was utterly indifferent to these things,—and, indeed, their bad intention was sufficiently neutralized by their obvious folly and absurdity; but he felt assured that the House must suffer in its dignity and moral influence by such exhibitions.
