The analysis of the parties showed for the Government 304

Liberals and one Conservative (Mr. J. Peel, who was elected to represent the Conservatives of Tamworth, Sir R. Peel being sup- posed to represent the Liberals, but the former has throughout steadily supported the Bill, and may probably exchange functions with his cousin at the next election). For the Conservatives there were 273 Conservatives and 44 Liberals, comprehending all the Troglodytes headed by Earl Grosvenor, Sir R. Peel, Mr. R. B. Sheridan, and other disaffected Liberals. Fifteen Liberals and 13 Conservatives were absent; five seats were vacant ; and with these the Speaker and Mr. Dodson made up the complete number of 658.
