Lorinorf;June 27.--2 o'clock a. mt.--In the
House or Lords the debate on the Su.s_ .
penal:l.l7BM was continued. An immense
crowd was present on the Boor and in th e
galleries, and great excitement was mani
Lord eh/Tendon regretted that thisques
tion was made a party , measure.: Ireland
never had gained anything •in the battle
field of party polities. He criticised
the Irish, policy of the /ate. Derby
Ministry, and Raid he distrusted the policy
of She presentDabinet. He thought it' was
safer for the Church to make terms with its
avowed opponents - than trust no professed
friend. If the .Church of England fell into
a minority, his affection for it would re
main ; but his conscience would not
support_ it . aa.. an es tablished ,Church.
He was in:fa-vox of aumatablishing the /dr&
Church, but he would not disendow it. He
concluded with the declaration that he
should vote for the Suspensory bilk [Great
Rosem the Whig benches.) - '
Lord dale said this bill was a sacri
lege, and the Qnben's sanction of-it ought
to be barred by the coronation oath.
Lord Marlborough said the bill was only
an effort of the Liberals to gain office at
any cost.
Lords Duffer and Rornilly , spoke in
support of the bill, and t he Archbishops of
York and Armogy in opposition.
The Marquis or Eialisbury said the bill
shoal/lA/Lye been made to, exclude fixture
holder* of ,benilloas from compensation.
As this was not done, he thought the ob
ject of its framers was to commit the
Lords to some ulterior • design. This was
no. plan of clisendowment; but the fra
mers threatened that if it were not
passed, worse would,ibllow. If a worse
one could be - franied they would'have done
it. He conceived of nothing Worse than
abolition. The inquiry /should be made as
to thaTight of spa/140: envyand
Hkolvere the reason for it, it would not
stop 'at corporate property. He thought
the Ternargr beculd', regkrd its as a sop to
land andriotihe Church was
their object, and the real badge of conquest
of the Lords hedame an echo of the Com-
They _had better not be Lairds at

pal and Presentations. !
The Public School ,of the Second ,
has long enjo yed enviable reputation, d
has been justly 'regarded equal to many f
the best private Colleges and Academies
the Commonwealth. The ward is not a
Populous one, being largely taken up wi h
business houses and manufactories, se th t, ,
the class rooms' are not overcrowded wit h
pupils, there being an '
average attenda nts
quite inside the eapacitiwof the schoo .
a i
The annual commencement exercises
marked with - a degree of proficiency an
learning which renders -, them - highly
tractive and inviting to the friends ofedcl
cation in the city as well as ta, the-parent '
and immediate . patrons of "the. school
It " was not singular therefore t
on the occasion of the common:icemen
yesterday a' large and highly intelligen
and appreciative audience assembled in th
main school room to participate 'in the ex
ercises. The boys and girls of the varid
departments were handsomely attired fo
the occasion,. presenting as bright '
charming an array of happy, youthful,
pretty faces as we have ever seen together.
The exereisescommenced with a few perti
nent. intraitictOry remarks by Prof. Ma
Ortun,the Principal, after which the pretty
and in:Spiriting vaciffization 'of "Hail th'
happy day!'Was,rendered in pleasing any
faultless style by the scholam, who, untie:
the direction of ProfM'Cabe, have made ad
mirable progress in that popular 'branch -oi
common school education. Miss Maggie
Wilson read a poetical selection in c lea r
and pretty style, and was folloW
ed by Master J. S. Arnold in a,
spicy and htunorons declamation in ,
which he acquitted himself declamation,
much credit. Miss Vary Cunningham, a
sprightly, - intelligent pupil, reasi,nfrag‘
ment of poetry in very good manner. Mitre
Julia De 'Lange next read a diff i cult and
intricate poetical gem and displayed nnu
suet powers of elocution, giving full and
'fine effect to every line and sentence. bias.
ter George Cunningham--read, a prose Felt"-
tion with animation and acquitted himself
nobly. We believe we have mentioned all of
the scholars who participated in the pro-,
grainme, which was here and there inter-'
sporsed with choice musical offerings by
the entire school. At the conchilion of the
exercises ~ Prof. Maeruni delivered his ,
farewell address to the pupils, announcing
that his termination with thetehool follow
ed. the. day. his resignation, that he might,
enter into a new sphere of life, having been
aceepOid by the Board of Directors.• He
expreised himself as deeply rained to part
wittrthe lady associates of the school who
had'antributed so much towards its sllO
- and the care/ p i and thorough training
of 'the Scholars. It was a sad task to
Md.°, final adieu to the many radiant fee*,
about him, and the good hearted Principal
welt nigh broke down in - his farewell ad
dress to those kir and amo . : whom he has
so faithfully and zealously .. red during
the past few years. Many t . ere were more
than the scholars andladY teachers who/kit,
the tears fbrifirig themselves adown their
cheeks at the parting of a dearly loved
Principal with his pupils.
