At a special meeting of the Court of Common Council,

yesterday, Mr. Valiance moved a series of resolutions denouncing Sir George Grey's bill, and affirming that its provisions would justify opposition to the entire measure. Mr. Cornell moved, as an amendment, that the second reading should not be opposed, but that they should trust to the insertion of amendments in Committee. This was negatived by 100 to 2. Another amendment, to petition against objectionable clauses was also negatived; and the original resolutions were carried with two dissentients.
