(From ouk own Corrcspondbmx,)

Wblijnchon, August 8 Govetnmont aaem to be quite unable to get to ordinary buainoaa. It fa over a fottnfght olnoe queatlona were answered, and to-day It waa thought that na th« Representation Bill was out of the way questioner oould be disposed of. Only a couple had been aaked when an adjournment of the Housa was aaoved, on an anawer being given to the following questions asked by Mr Hutchison : — Whether the tfljdavlta and other documents In the oaso of Lon!s Ohemia will be made public? Whether there ia any preoedoat for the ecu partt argument addreaeed on behalf of Louis Ohemia to his Excellency the Governor, revlawlng the whole caso? Whether auoh a oourse is to be followed m elmiUr oases m futuro ? Tho Premier replied that no precedent existed for making so oh doeumenta public, but of oourae if the House desired it aIL these papers would be laid on the table. Thereupon Mr Hutchison proceeded, putting'f m order by moving the adjournment of the Houie, to dlsoußS faota which are well known thronghouk the oo'ony. The Premier however raised a point of order that the House oould not dfacusa the action of the Governor, and a long dicoussion followed, the Speaker ruling that the acts of the Governor oould not be dfsonssed.

Previous to this there had been a short discussion on what at one time looked like • sensational affair. A m»n named petitioned the Houae to be released from a lnnatio apylum, and the Committee reported thAt he Bhould be examined by two independent medical mon. Several members itated that the man who bad previously been m an asylum, bub was liberated, had been re arrested and again Incarcerated, beoause he proposed to address a publio meeting m Auofeland m ord^r to expose abues exiting In the asylum. Some strong expressions were used, but eventually Government promised to have the man examined as recommended by tb,e Comml'tee.

Thia waa really all tbat was done this afternoon.

Although the .Representation Bill P'lßsod Its final stages m the House last nlgnt, It la by no means out of danger. >t is thoroughly well understood m the looses that the Legislative Council will strike out tb.9 "Ono man ooe vote" clause, and that if this is done Sir Qeo Grey will use every means possible to kill the BUI altogether, rather than accept such an arnandmont.
