He had very nmcb pleasure in seconding the amendment, nplaupe.) Tbe Chairman replied to the remarks of Mr Griffith and Mr Haswell, and before putting the 'tB-idment to the vote, he read the circular con- rening the meeting. He added : We do not want nv railway men here ; they are not engaged in the navigation of the Dee, and we do not want them here, t i an invitation meeting, and those who have not hd circulars have no right to vote ; and those who jreatthe back of the room are railway men, and they have no right to vote. A Voice : Your notice said, " Interested" in the oivigation of the Dee, and aren't they interested. (Applause.) The Chairman : Interested," did I say ? Very nell. 1 will now put his amendment. Those in Ivor of the Wrexham Bill, hold up your hands. A large number of hands were at once upraised, and after the vote for the Chester Bill had been Uken it was clearly to be seen that the amendment was carried, though the chairman made no declaration -at least the reporters, who sat immediately ia front of him, failed to hear him say anything. Mr Griffith, after the show of hands, asked the chairman to put the amendment as the substantive motion. Tbe Chairman : I have put it once, and am not ning to put it again. Mr Davison moved, and Mr Griffith seconded, a vote of thanks to the chairman, which was carried. Sn'iiequently, the representative of one of the CiiMter papers asked the Chairman what his ruling had been with reference to the show of hands, and he rerlied that he had declared the resolution carried. THE CHESTER BILL. A meeting convened by the Mayor of Chester, of nanufacturers, landowners, shipowners, traders, and others interested in the River Dee, irrespective of their preferences with regard to the three opposing measures now before Parliament for constituting a new conservancy board for maintaining the navigation M the Dee, was heM in the Lhester iown Hall, on Saturday. The attendance was very large, comprising virions representatives of the traders, miners, and shipowners from Holywell, Mostyn, Bagillt, Flint, Connah's Quay, Queen's Ferry, Hawarden, Saltney, Buckley, Chester, and other places. The meeting was ojkii to the public, this being tbe first meeting oe the subject held with open doors. Early iu the proceedings a letter was read from the Denbighshire and Flintshire Coalowners' Association, intimating that at a meeting of that association held on the previous day, the members, after a conference with the promoters of the Wrexham Bill, had, after receiving promises from the latter that modifications should be made in the Bill (the most important of which was that claims of the mortgagees of the Dee E-tate should not be allowed to take precedence of the claims of the navigation), had decided to throw it! their lot with the Wrexham people. Mr Samuel Smith, the Deputy-Town-Clerk of Chester, then read it elaborate summary of the principal provisions of the three Bills the Chester or public Bill, the Wrex-bam or Railway Companies' Bill, and the River Dee Campanys' Bill, showing that the first-named made the best provision for preserving the navigation, and tffered the greatest advantages to the trader. A long cession followed, in the course of which, Mr Benjamin Piercy's statements at a recent private meeting of the promoters of the Wrexham Bill were severely canvassed, and it was shown that to hand 1 ver the river to the Wrexham, Mold, and Connah's way railway speculators and tue mortgagees of the LfeinT r-trecuiuiora snu ise mortgagees oi tne j ix tstate would be suicidal. A resolution proposed v Mr 4 n HToiw. f v, rtuZ a tj,.;iu Lead Works, seconded' by Mr W. C. Deeley, oAhe bee ()il Works, Saltney, and supported by Mr W. .

Mr. Gladstone, in answer to Mr. Ashmead-Bartlett, said m their proceedings in Egypt the crovernment were desirous of recognising the suzerainty of the Sultan, but the application of the principle must be guided by circumstances, the adjourned debate on going into Committee on -lie Seats Bill was resumed by Mr. Parnell, who protested against what he termed the jerrymander-ng which the Boundary Commissioners had been ?uilty of in regard to some of the Ulster counties ,md.o e oiy of Dublin.

He suggested the appointment of a committee for the purpose of advising with the Railway Commissioners as the basis of a good measur". Jn the subject of railway charges, LordSudeley said the railway companies, acting on the represcnta-rions of the Commissioners, had prepared bills on :he classification of rates and terminals, but as thev :ould not be considered before Easter, it wu" loped that in the meantime some arrangement rould be come to, in the interest of all parties, m the question of classification.

He explained that General Graham was being sent out with a force of about 12,000 men, including those already at Suakim, the immediate object of the expedition being to disperse the tribes in the neighbourhood of that place, and to open the route to Berber. He defended the making of the railway to Berber, and said the Une would be used purely for military purposes. On a division, the motion was carried by a majority of 77. Othei votes were then considered. HOUSE OF LORDS. Tuesday. Earl Granville, replying to Lord Salisbury, denied the statement that he had communicated a telegram on the subject of the alleged insult to the British flag by Germany to the noble marquis or to the Prince of Wales. No confirmation of the elleired occurrence had reached the Government or the Germany Embassy, and he felt convinced that what had been done or had not been done would not lead to any further complications. The Earl of Milltown called attention to the case of Frederick Marshall, who was committed for trial for wilful murder, but removed to Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum by a warrant purporting to be signed by the Secretary of State, and asked whether there was any precedent for such a course, and moved for a copy of the warrant. The Earl of Dalhousic explained that the Home Secretary acted under the authority of the Criminal Lunatics Act of last year, and other noble lords stated that the act was perfectly legal. The motion was negatived, and the House adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Tuesday. Mr. Brand, replying to Mr. C.

The House afterwards went into Coromittee on the Seats Bill, the debate being resumed on Mr. Bryce's amendment to Clause 2, the object of which was to disfranchise the LTniversities. The amendment was rejected by 181 votes. Viscount Crichton moved to except from the disfranchising operation of Clause 2 such boroughs in Ireland as were returned under the census of 1881 as having a population of 10,000 or over. Sir C. Dilke could not accept the proposal. It would open a wide door for exceptional treatment. Sir M. Hicks-Beach thought it might be possible by grouping a number of towns to arrive at a borough representation in Lreland, which would secure a distinction between the urban and agricultural populations. Mr. Healy opposed the amendment. Mr. Macartney supported, and Mr. T. Dickson opposed the amendment. The committee divided For the amendment, 48 ; aprainst, 105 ; maiority aerainst. 57.

Both on the River and in the Desert you have borne hardships and privation without murmur : in action you have been uniformly victorious ; all that men could do to save a comrade you have done, but Khartoum fell through treachery two days before the advanced troops reached it. A period of comparative inaction may now be expected. This Army was not constituted with a view to undertaking the siege of Khartoum, and for the moment we must content ourselves with preparations for the Autumn advance. You will, I know, face the heat of Summer and the necessary, though less exciting, work which has now to be done with the same courage and endurance you have shown hitherto. I thank you heartily for all you have done in the past. I can wish nothing better I can ask nothing more of you in the future than the same uncomplaining devotion to duty which has charac terised your conduct during the recent operations." FEOM SPECIAL C0EEESP0"DEOT3. SuAKm, Monday, 7 p.m. The Scots Guards disembarked to-day. and marched to camp. All were in good health and spirits. All the troops here are free from illness, eager for a forward movement, and confident of success. The enemy are concentrating at Handout. Most probably a forward movement will be made by the advanced guard next Monday, to form a camp five miles distant, the whole force proceeding there the next day. Every one is anxiously awaiting the arrival of General Graham. Koeti, March 8.

If you live you will see the power of the Mahdi spread over Europe, Rome, and Constan tinople, after which there is nothing for you but nen. Koeti, March 9. The Mahdi is repo. ted to have gone to Abbah Xrl;:ud: which is about 1U0 miles South of Khartoum, on the White Nile, where he commenced his career I as a holy man. So great has been the neglect of cultivation owing to ihe absenoe of the male population from their villages, that great discontent exists among the 1 Mahdi's followers, and food is scarce. It is stated that a rising against the Maheli'a j Emir at Khartoum, who is his nephew, may be expected. The Mahdi himself lives in dread of assassination, I which is probably the reason of his retiring to Abbah J Island. The enemy who followed Brackenbury's force ! were probably part of the Monassir tribes who had fled from their country on the approach of the English. Colonel Stanley Clarke and the Light Camel Corps, and Colonel Barrow's Squadron of Hussars arrived this morning Lord Wolselev inspected and addressed the Naval ! r , ,.i ti ..i : i tt j. xir.ii- Brigade, the Heavy Camel Corps, the Duke of Corn wall's Light Infantry, and Gordon Highlanders, and warmly eulogised their services performed under exceptional difficulties. OUR RIFLES AND CARTRIDGES. A military correspondent, signing himself " Pro j Patria, writes : "Ihe statements made by your eorrespondent in his graphic description of the battle m atDU aemana instant attention, lie say Ihe cartrida.es stuck m the Martinis, and numbers were thrown away useless ; ' he himself took up a rifle, but the cartridge stuck, and that he was triad to be rid of it and return to his revolver. He may well indeed describe it as a ' monsrrel ' car- tridge ; one has only to look at it and compare it with fhe serviceable solid metal cartridges turned out m millions by several private firms ana 11 if quiics no expert to endorse his opinion JLS It not enough for the nation to be kept for days in al most breathless suspense as to whether such and such a small force has not actually been swept off the face of the earth, but it must also learn that that force is badly equipped r" Let any one consider what hi.- feelings would be, face to face with half a dozen Soudanese in the heat of action and a cartridge 'stuck in his rifle. Are we, who pride ourselves en our scientific knowledge, who lavish thousands, ay, even millions, on experiments, to send our troops into the field with a cartridge that will not. lenr carriage and Knocking about, thereby getting out of shape and consequently sticking iu the rifle? Wars are not what thy used to be Months now take the place of years, and before long, with the modern ' improvements ' in implements of destruction, weeks will have to be substituted for months. At present I believe the necessary machinery does not exist at Woolwich for producing the solid metal cartridge: but let the Government only condemn the 'mongrel,' and call on English manufacturers, and a delivery of at least iu.uuu.oou or 12,000,000 serviceable cartridges per wvek, and more if required, woidd be at their disposal." Mr. Goschen was on Tuesday night the guest of the members of the Eighty Club. It is stated by a Paris correspondent that the signature of the treaty regulating Egyptian finances is imminent. After inquiry into the matter the Music Committee of the Corporation has recommended that new premises for the Guildhall School of Music -hould be built ou the Victoria Embankment, at a cost of 20,000.

Up to Sunday evemng sixty-six bodies had been recovered, and these were buried on Monday afternoon. Fifty -seven were still missing, and their bodies were being brought up very slowly, as the afterdamp made the rescue work dangerous. Only two out of about a hundred and thirty miners who were in the pits when the explosion occurred have come up alive, and they were saved only by the accident that the miners from the neighbouring shafts, when coming up after the explosion, noticed the two lying half unconscious near the entrance. It is believed that the cause of the accident was either the incautious use of dynamite, or smoking where it was expressly forbidden. The explosion has rendered forty-three widows and seventy -nine orphans destitute, but their immediate wants are provided for by Count Larisch and by the Miners' Provident Society. Public subscriptions are being opened for their further needs. Austria has no Employers Liability Law, and the Workman's Insurance Bill has not yet passed the Committee stage.
