The four nights' debate on Sir John Yarde Roller's motion fermi-. noted this morning at five o'clock. The result appears from the follow- mg numbers—

For the motion 287 Against it 308 Majority for Ministers 2

Much time was occupied with not very interesting discussions on Irish affairs; in which Lord Monerrn, Mr. Sergeant JAul:■.x, and Mr. O'CoNNEia, took the principal part. On the one side, the tran- quillity of Ireland was insisted upon as proof of a vise mid popular administration. On the other, the Lord-Lieutenant's attentions to Mr. O'Connell were brought forward es evidence that the Government en- couraged agitation against the Law, the Church, and the l'nion. Lord Rottman entered into a general defence of the measures of Govern- ment in reply to Lord Stanley—whom he reminded of the failure of several of his own measures : 111r. Sergeant Jackson took pains to prove the insincerity of the Foreign Minister in the negotiation for the sup- pression of the Portuguese Slave-trade: and Mr. O'CONNELL charged against the Conservatives, as one of their greatest crimes, the main- tenance of the Corn-laws. But Ireland was the chief topic iu the three speeches.

Mr. CtrauLEs Woon assigtaal the saute reasons as Lord Howick for quitting the Melbourne Administration ; and defended the naval ap- pointments which Sir .Tames :on hall attacked.

Admiral AnAur. took the saute ceurse ; but made a very lame excuse for the removal of Sir James Gordon front (Altai:nun. Sir James, who had small means and a large faintly, came to town, almost with tears in his eyes, on learaing of his removal ; but the Admiralty

had made a rule—" it WIN then"—that a dog-officer should not hold the Chothala appohnotent., and, unfortnnately, Sir James had been made a flog-ofiler in ,lanuttry last.

encounter; maintained that the increase of expenditure was inevitable ; and that Colonial difficulties were in process of satisfactory settlement. In conclusion, he said he cared little about the " flimsy motion," nil the arguments in support of it having been rebutted.

Lord John's speech concluded the debate.

Before the adjourned debate began, the Lord Mayor, Alderman Hey- gate, and four Common-Councilmen, appeared at the bar of the Com- =tons, and presented a "remonstrance and petition" from the Com- mon Council of London for the liberation of the Sheriffs. Sir EDWARD SUDDEN gave notice that he should shortly present a petition from the Bar on the subject of Privilege.

In the House of Lords. after a short conversation, in which the Duke of WELLINGTON, the Loan CHANCELLOR, Lord lloottcatAm, Lord MEL BOURNE, and the Marquis of LONDONDERRY joined, the full discussion of Prince Albert's Naturalization Bill was postponed to Monday.
