LoNnoN; July 13.—The debate on the,
Irish Chnrch bill was resumed in the ;
House of Lords last evening. Earl Clar
ency Mimed the bill be reada third time
three months henee.• He opened the de
bate in a speedh in support of his motion.
He admitted the verdict of the country
in the late elections was favorable to the
.bill, but the details were . then unknown
to the people. He believed if the matter
be tested now the bill would be rejected.
, gar! Derby Said, beyond opposing
of the second reading, he had contented
himself by giving a silent vote. His
objections to the bill were not removed.
He was opposed on principle to_ disestab
lishmerit • and disendowment. Even
with the amendments introduced the es
tablished church was left with a miser

l d insufficient for
amendments, if pressed, but he advised
their withdrawal so as to throw the re
sponsibility of ;am rejected reasonable
amendments on the Commons. He
hoped the Lords would firmly resist all
attempts of the Commons to modify
Further discussion ensued, after which
Earl Clareney's amendment ,was with
Earl Derby announced his intention to
submit a *Meat against the bill.
The bill was then read a third time

Bishops to beretained in their seats, and
spoke in favor of his motion.
_ Earl Da Grey, on the Dart of the 01'-
ilizument, supported the amendment.
Lord Cairns opposed any alteration of
amendments. He thou'' liti it no greater
anomaly • to allow Bishops , to retain
[ their seats than the bill itself, which is,
[ altogether an anomaly and full of
[ noveltiee. - •

Bishops be allowed to keep their seats.

- The announcement • was greeted with
coiatinued cheering from the Ministerial
benches: . . • - /
Earl Stanhope moved the insertion of a
1 proviso for furnished residences and*
glebes • for - Catholic grid - Ilesbyterian
clergy, and introduced the principle of
concurrent endowment. -
Lord.Houghton/thought . the require.
ment produced the impression that Ire
land was to give religious equality. The
bill did not. ,He would support the pro
posal fdr concurrent eedOwment.
Doke Sot:Corset thought the bill ought
to be liberal to Catholics and Protestants.
What the bill wanted througi out was a
little generosity. ' , The Commons in their
amendments professed to give ireneros
ity, but unfortunately their lib:rant:7
was all one-sided. MI supported the mo•
tion. • • •
Earl Kimberly opposed the motion on
the ground that it was contrary to the
pledges given *by the Liberal Party at
the general election. - -,
Earl pranard also opposed-the:amend
ment., The Catbollulderarchy was not
prepared to alcept state endowments. It
was impossible for - Catholics to vote for
the motion, except'at:the expenses of con
sistency. and , good; faith. What such
Catholics wanted Was* disestablishme'nt
and• disendowment of the established
Church, and social aculnolltical equality
in place of a system of ascendancy which
ostracised : .Catholics, and deprived the
Irish of all local government.

Lefinorr, July 18.—A collision occurred
at Sheffield to-day between two parties
of miners, one belonging .to the Union
and the other,.consisting of anti-Union
men. The fighting was severe and many
wore Injured, one fatally.
The Star today says: "The interven
tion of America has undoubtedly he;ped
to prolong the insurrection in Cuba. The
Government, it is true, has resolutely
declined to be led into acts • of open hoe
tility to Spain, but the Lairds of Amer
- ice have contrived in some instances to
outwit it. This does not exculpate Eng
land, but shows that the faults of which
-'she is accused may be committed "by
another nation at the very time it is ex
acting redress from them."
Paula, July 12.—As predicted would
be the case in previous dispatches, the
,l`tapoleon, yielded his
assent to the demand of the legislative
bodies, the nature of which has been
already stated., The change in the Min
istry has not been yet announced, but
the reorganization of the Cabinet within
a short time is certain. Throughout the
whole of this crisis the Emperor has ex
ercised his usual tact and shrewdness.
lie invited nearly all the Deputies in the
-Corps Legielatif to a dinner and soiree
at St. Cloud, this week. . He has chatted
pleasantly with many of them, of all
abrades or opinion, giving expression to
many of those piquant sayings so attrac
tive to Frenchmen. For instance: To
one by whom he has been taken by
the button-hobs he said, "AL! Mon
sieur Bullet, you mean to• take hold of
my coat for fear I may_pull - back." To a
group of several with whops he was con
versing on the situatiou, he said, "You
begin to treat ate like the old lion in the
fable, trying to cut my nails, and take
out my, teeth and leave me nothing but
my m she, 'which is considered harmless."
To otherehe said: "The elections clearly
prove that I must choose between empire'
and revolution, between neither can in
dividuals be set up." To others he said:
will give full satisfaction to the liberal
aspirations of all parties, but 1 have de
cided to cease concessions at the boundar
ies prescribed in the constitution."
While the Emperor's conduct for the
past fezr days is regarded , as adroit, it is
not considered as liselpto atop the agita
tion for further com.ssions.
Paitts,.July 13. 7 -It is o ffi cially an
