Lord Stanley was asked on Thursday night as to the

Spanish trial in a Prize Court of our steamer Tornado, the illegalities in the procedure, the long delay, and the cruel imprisonment of many British subjects which is said to have aggravated the matter. Lord Stanley replied that the Spanish Government had, of course, the right to have the case of a suspicious vessel adjudicated in a Prize Court, but that he had been obliged to protest strongly against informal and illegal methods of procedure, and he did not yet know with what result. As to the nature of the imprisonment, papers would be laid on the table.
