The retoluiloa hp ha J te propoeewee aa follow*
That this meeting o( InHabltanta of Southampton, con-veme* by public announcement,' hereby protest* against tlx proposed sdpplemeutary vdte by the Uovernrteut o" six millions sterling for the increase of our army Wituri awing that It lain aplrit a'departure from England . neutrality, and from the promlae made by the Chancellor of thehxrli^juerou tlieeronlngof the meeting of l'arllament; .u l.rltatlus mcnace to a friendly Powers aud a proposal Jrsu-bt with dantrer to the peace of EurOpo, aud the beat interests of the British Empire.
—[The reaolutien wa* received with cheer*, hls##a, and upioar.l—Mr. FaUey maid that he undrratuod theie »" to be an organised oppesltian that evening, but he could see the character of the meeting, and trie reaolu-lion would be carri«d by an enormous mijorlfy.' (\ voicet lt'« a Liberal meeting.—cheer*.) It was a meeting fir peace; it, was a meeting in favour of British intereet*. and he only wi.hed theyountr men "bo Were endeavoomtg to disturb the meeting knew as much abauf the cuts* of war as their fathers did (cheer*), it wa* not to our interest or cood policy to aend our brave troopi and our sailor* to be engaged in a cause that would oring dishonour and disgrace to the name of England (biases and ohrera). Hi* rftolutiou stated that, inapirit, the proposed vote wa« a departure from neutrality. Were not our Army and Navy already in a state of efficiency ? Then if hot it Was a disgrace to the Authorities of tbe country. (A Voice: How about the Liberal Government ?). The Liberal Government never brought the country to auch a humiliating and.disgraceful position (Uproar). L*t Mm direc: tlipir ttteution to if hat the Chancellor of tbe 'Exchequer had ; romieed on evening week, ai the opening of Parliament, the early meeting of wbicb c«a«ed'anxiety tnd alarm throughout the country. And what c.uaed ill this alarm ! (A Voice: Mr. Gladstone,and laughter), h was thought that something grand w». coming ; some tiling that would raise the hbftty of England ; but, lo, tlic mountain in labour brought forth a wretched little nouae (hisses). Mr. Palvey next referred to tbe cjn-iitions laid down by Mr. Cross and Lord Derby at the 1 spinning of tbe war, and up to tbe present moment Russia had honorably fulBlled her engagement (bisees) 1 Le Chancellor of the Exchequer had stated that no rjt* would be aaked for until the Russian terms of peace were known. Before theae terms were known the Chancellor of the Kxchequer gave notice for a supplementary vote, and his excuse waa that Russia delayed in tusking known the term* of peace. (A voice : do ah* iid. cheer*.) The term: had come to hand. (A voice: Of cour.e they did, Ruaala waa frightened.) Tboee terms were calculated to lead to peace, unless by the c 'urje of the Government Turkey would be deluded into swilling more blood and spending more money. l.orJ BeacenaMeld had *tat*d that the Ku«*ian term* •ere calculated to be a basis of peace; If *o, what were "e going to apend six million* for ? He contended that tl.e Government had attempted to tamper with tho forking claascs (no, no, and uproar). He aaid that they L»d reason to btlievo— and England bad reason to believe—that tbe autoraent made by the Chancellor of the Etcbeqoer at tbe opening of Parliament held good ; but statement bad already been broken (hiasw) The l iberal* had up to the present shown faith in the ("vernment, and wera not dwirou* of making this a I olitical question (nli( no, and uproar). It was an imperial question. (A voteo : leuppo.e you wan' .. W&llinKfnrd). Another disturbance wa* crea, Mr. F.lvey, continuing, aaid that the proposed vote waa an irritating menace to a friendly pqwer (oh. oh). Since Russia had been an empire, except m the Crimean war, sl.o bud been a friend to England (Holy Kuaaia). He never bad any ajmpatby with the Russian fo m ot Ei-vermnent, ai.d be quite egreed that the partition of I' land wa* the bloodicat picture in the bwok of time (I ear, hear, and cheer*, and a' Voice: Ho w at-uut Khiva?). II* urged that If England waa dragged into war it would be brought about by the the head of the pretent Government, by a man who had built himself up in public life by making phraaei.—
