§ SIR WILLIAM HARCOURT
said, with reference to the Resolution he had on the Paper with respect to the Extradition Treaty with the United States, that the right hon. Gentleman at the head of the Government had promised him a day to bring it on after the Merchant Shipping Bill had been disposed of. He had no doubt that the right hon. 978 Gentleman had done all he could in the matter; but on the day that was offered he could scarcely expect to engage the attention of the House, and should therefore, although very unwillingly, postpone the Motion. If diplomacy had not meanwhile settled the question, he would bring it forward early next Session.
