Mr. Disraeli has made a proposal,—reeeived with heartycheering, —which seems

to show that he really wishes to pass the whole Re- form Bill this session, and not even to defer the section which redis- tributes the Beats. He proposes that the House shall have morning sittings on Tuesday and Thursday,—commencing at two and going on till seven, when he proposes to adjourn till nine,—the two hours always given to dinner and dull speakers. This gives eight good hours of debate, even if the House adjourns at midnight, and will tend also to extinguish the uninfluential speakers, who talk only for their constituencies, not for the sake of moulding the course of the Bill. The dinner-hours are their allotted hours, and are generally, therefore, lost for all practical purposes. Mr. Disraeli's proposal gives a long morning, adds practically two full hours to each day's session, for the two dinner-hours are not really lost, and will conduce to the taciturnity of the dullards.
