The Heme of Lord: reassembled on Monday after the Easter recces, but eat for a few minutes only, poring the sitting Lord Ommvilla gave notice that, on an early day, he would ask whether it was in accordance with the preamble of tho Indian Mutiny Act,

In the House of Commons, in reply to Sir H. James, the Chancellor of the Exchequer explained that the native Indian troops ordered to Malta were not reckoned, in tho number mentioned in the Mutiny
the 35,000 of reserves lately called out, and which were added to the establishment by the operation of existing Acta of Parliament. Lord Harrington then gave notice that, in consequence of this answer, he tbould, on an early day, submit,* resolution to the c fleet that no military forces should be iai*ed or kept by the Crown, in time of peace, without the consent of Parliament, in any part of the dominions of the Cmwm,*acept math f»c*o " might b* actually wring within her Maiosty s Indian possession*, 'lhe noble Lord also asked when tho estimate for the expenfe of th* movement of the Indian troope to^laha srould he Lid upon the table and the House he invited to take it into consideration. The Chancellor of jho' Exchequer maid that the Government were crtdenvour-Ing to oWn as perfect an rstim*ta as possible, but ho could not then name an early day for it* dis-cuseion, though, pmhop* Monday, the 37th, bight he a convenient day for the noble Lord to move his rteolefkn if he oould mot And mn earlier opportunity. The adiournod debate on the third reading of Customs and Inland Revenue-BUI was resumed by Mr. Vivian, who in*i*t*d that the Oovomm*ut were hound to explain how tho money wa» to be provided for tho removal of the Indian troops. The Chancellor of tho Exchequer pointed out that if the policy of Minister* was objected to as unconstitutional, the question ■ ught to bo raised in another form and on a more lUitaW* nrmdon; fherea* if $ha hon. member chal-I Jigod their ^omgoml policy he ought to have abstained- from criticisms on their*policy and general . mduct. He denied that the fleet had been sent to the Sea cf Marmora with "a lie in its mouth." M misters believed that they were justified both by the
iter and the spirit of the Constitution in th* action !:iey had taken, and that when challenged they would lo able to justify all they had done. The debate was ( ntinued by several bpn. members, and on a division the third reading of the Pill was carried by 111 to 19— * majority of M. The reel of the evening warn spent m Committee of Supply.
In the House of Lord* on Tuesday, Viscount Cran-Irook (Mr. Hardv), Bmon Xmtxm (Mr C. Addertey), ■nd tho Bishop of St. David's took the oath and their ' ate. At the instance of Lord Selborne, the Duke of l.ichmond and Gordon, on behalf of the Government,

On th* order for Hiding the Pishopnca PHI a third time, Lord Rose- [ b ry moved as an amendment that any necessity which flight exist for additional bishops would be best met by increasing the number of suffragan bishops.

THE "THREE TEARS' SYSTEM." ^ At the Bankruptcy court on Monday, tbo appeal case of Hattersley and Co. against Blinchard, Wore Vice-Chancellor Sir Jame* Bacon, Chief Judgv. a question of considerable interest arose with reference to tho three years' system of purchasing pianofortes. It appeared that Blancbard, the debtor, was the keeper of a tavern in Sheffield, called the " Oddfellows' llfst," at which concerts were held. Ho entared bto an egrqsment with Me—ri. Hattersley and Co., of Broad-street, Sheffield, for the purchase of a pianoforte on the three years' system. The pries was £45, to be paid in three yearly instalments, at tho rate of 25s. monthly. Tho agreement set forth that the pianoforte was tha property of Messrs. Hattersley and Co. until the purchase money wa* paid, and that in the event of bankruptcy or assignmentor an execution being levied tbey were to be at liberty to tako possession of it. On the failure taking place the tnistee who was appointed brought the question into the court below, and the county court judge held, without deciding tho question of the custom of the trade, that the pianoforte wa* in the order and die-1 of tho debtor at tho date of the faili

creditor*. Mr. Wfnslow, 'Q.C.. and Mr. R. T. Rood "Piwoled against that order; and Mr. Cooper Willi* appeared for tho respondent. His lordship, in, delivering judgment, said that the agreem&at wa* founded upon a custom, and no question of order and disposition arose. Messrs. llattersloy and Co. took the position of lenUers and. th*! hirer at X certain monthly rent, and until such time a* the value of the piano wa* faBy p*ld U dearly bebng*d1»Hatlanl*y. lTio custom being fully eatablishod bo hold that it wa* not an attempt on the part , of a creditor to obtain the possession of good* whidi did not belong to him. The custom wa* perfectly reasonable, and the ordei* of the judge below would therefore be reversed and the appeal affirmed with cost*.
