In the House of Commons, to-day, Mr William P. Corbetr, member for Wicklow East, asked the Government what honors and reward they intended conferring on Captain Kane and the officers and crew of H.M.S. Calliope, in addition to the cold official eulogium. He explained that there was a strong feeling in the House of Commons in favor of suitably acknowledging their gallant conduct. Lord G. Hamilton, in reply, stated it was not the intention of the Admiralty to make any reward.
