Aa soon as that resolution was taken Lord Derby dissented from it , and tender*! his naienaticn. That fact Lord Derby bad announcesl in the House of Lords, and it then appeared to the Prime Minister to ba necessary, in order to prevent any eiaggeratad opinion aa to what might possibly be o of that important atop of L '

The Chancellor of the Exchequer replied thst there wore no communication!, except thole which being of a confidential character could not bo laid upon th* , table, beyond what hail been placed before tho House. Mr. Hardy brought up the Msssage from the Crown, which was read by the Speaker, and was followed by a burst of Ministerial cheering. Ths Chancellor of the Exchequer then gave notice that on Thursday be should move that the Msssags be taken into consideration, and that an address bo presented to her Majesty, thanking her for her gracious communication. Lord Harungton. did not object to tho day named, but pointed out that, considering the importance of Uie Message and th* character of tht paper* in the hand* of the Hon**, it was not improbable that a long discussion might arias. If that were liksly to be the case, fa* thought it would ba inconvenient to interrupt the debate by interposing the Budget on Monday. Sir C. Dilk* luggested that tha debate should commence on Monday, and that tha original intention to take tha Budget on Thursday should bo adhered to. Mr. Gladstone remarked that it wa* not to b* expected that tho diecuaaiou of th* Message, if commence on Thursday, would be finished that day. Us treated, therefore, that the original arrangement would be carried out,and that th* House
would b* informed *hsti.ev the view declared by Austria oemtinned to be held by her or not, or whether the declaration of Prince Goriachakoff when Austria gave her judgment wa* (till lu force. The Chancellor of the Exchequer admitted that, if a long debate on the Message wa* probable, it would be inconvenient to it cut in two by a discussion on the Budgtt, Another coo*id*ntfioa of weight waa th* production ef paper*, respecting which he had given the House the only aniwar in his power; but having, just before ^ .se-------*--- st. -AW*
