one o'clock, to forward the general winding-up of the session.
On the motion of Lord Jonzi RUSSELL, the Bribery at Elections Bill was read a third time, and passed, after an amendment had been proposed and inserted by the SOLICITOR-GENERAL, to the effect that candidates, as well as others, should be liable to be called before Com- mittees to answer for their conduct.
The House went into a Committee of the whole, and passed the Appropriation Bill ; with a complaint from Sir GEORGE SINCLAIR of the waste of public money.
