(By Cable.) London, Feb. 4. The expulsion of Mr. Parnell and his followers from the House of Com-, mons last night was proposed by Mr. Gladstone, who moved that their ex pulsion, and nothing less, would suffice to restore order. The motion was carried, and the Speaker gave orders that the obstructors should be expelled. An unexampled scene of tumult and disorder ensued. Many members, who were ordered to retire, resisted the officers of the House. Mr. Gillon opposed them violently,and wasforcibly expelled. Finally all the obstructors left the Chamber, and order was restored.

Shortly after the Irish obstructors had been expelled, the House discussed Mr. Gladstone’s resolution, that a majority of three-fourths voting for the passage of a motion of u urgency” should suffice to give the Speaker supreme control. The motion was slightly modified and adopted. The Coercion Bill was then declared “ urgent,” in order that the Speaker should have full power to put down any obstruction to its discussion, and the debate was resumed. The House is still sitting Later. The sitting of the House of Commons was closed this afternoon, the debate on the Irish Coercion Bill being further postponed.
