THE LORD ADVOCATE
, in postponing the second reading of the Bill until after Easter, said, the impression which had prevailed that the financial results of the measure would be to put £1,000,000 of money into the pockets of the landed proprietors was an entire mistake; on the contrary, the Bill would raise from £35 to £80, the absolute burden on the heritors.
§ MR. G. W. HOPE
said, the landowners objected to the parochial schools being made stipendiaries of the Government.
§ Second Reading deferred till Thursday,. 8th May.
§ House adjourned at a quarter before Two o 'clock, till Monday 28th April.
