PARLIAMENTARY NOTES

(FBOM ODB OWN CORRBSPONDKZfT.) WeLiiNGTorf, September IS OOBAK MAIL. The evening sitting was ocoupied with the debate on the Premier's Oceau Mall resolnilon and the amendments moved by Mr Ward. The speakers op to eleven o'olook ware Sir H. Atkinson, Mr Ward and Sir John Hall. Mr Ward whilst making an able speech, on which he was warmly complimented by Sir J ohn Hal], labored undo? douaidurahle disadvantage, having to repeat so much of his Bpeoohea of last session. After the supper adjournment the debate* proceeded very drearily till half-past twelve, when a series of divisions were taken on different resolutions with tha result that the San Francleci and dlreot services are retained for another twelve months. THH BIBSOLDTION MOTION. The discussion bu Mr Ballanoe'a motion will not last loog. The motion will not bo qarriet?, and, as I explained before, it 1 will silt the Opposition equally well whotrier the motion Ib carried or rejected. The Go vc lament Is hardly likely to fly la the faoß of a decision of the Home and ■ d nolve Parliament daring the reiceii •• was ot one time their intention— at least Mr Floher stated as much, and It isi gennrally understood that he made the ' statement on Information he obtained when he waa In ha fall enjoyment of the sweats of offiop, PBOEOQATION. Mombors are mnking ttie usual prepara--1 tlons to take their departure, getting their personal balonglngs In shape, and books and papers together; Parliament (a to be prorogued by gazette. When the business of the nesnion ia over both Houses will be asked to adjourn for a fortnight, and tha proolamatlo- will appear ia the "Gazetta" proroguing Pirllament, BILLS. The Government have carried on ibelr business to-night with the greatest difficulty, and although they hope to t( reaoh Chicago " by tomorrow night, it will not bo done without the severest kicking, 'and I am afraid that their paotß will only juit hold out. Lite to-nl«ht the Premier made a statement to the effeot that he hoped to get through all the Bills on the Order Paper, before the house rose, tit to-morrow morning when Committee of Snpply would be put up, and the supplemoutary estimates tiken, and Mr Ballanoe would be offorded an opportunity of moving hi.B amendment favoring the Immediate d Insolation of Parliament; la the evening he hoped he would be able to pass tho Appropriation Bill and so finish all the business of the session. This announoe* ment was received with derisive cheers by the Opposition, who saw that to oarry oat this programme it would be neaesiac* to sit all night as there were six oc ■even Bills to get through to-night, several of them strongly opposed. The first BUI taken was the Native Land Oouit Amendment Bill on which progress had been, reported earlier m the evening. Sine* then Government had effaoted a compromise with Mr Ballanoo whloh apparently satisfied tho opponents of the measure and after some skirmishing the Bill was pasted through Committee. Then the Weitport Ngakawau Railway Extension Bill was. •afcen but after some time had been occupied Government seeing no chance of. the Bill passing moved to report progress and the Bill was killed for the session The next Bill was the Hospital »nj Charitable Institutions BUI wbtah merely provided for the rectification of ft loot! grievance at Hokitlka and thus shared • similar fßta, mombers objecting to agree to a Bill unless gtlerances In their own dlstriots were also sat right. Ministeni accepted th« ineritable and moved to report progrflss on the Bill, but It will probably be brought forward again tomorrow morning. \ B there waa no ohanoa of setting any work out of the Houio, progress was reported, and the House rote* about a qaartor past two to meet again afc half-past ten. HOSPITALS AND CHARITABLE, XlDi.
