MONTHLY DIGEST.

GREAT BRITAIN. In our last number we detailed certain changes which had taken place in his Majesty's Government, arising from the resignation of Mr. Stanley, Sir James Graham, the Duke of Richmond, and the Earl of Ripon. It now becomes our duty to record the resignation of Earl Grey, and the appointment of his successor, Viscount Melbourne, as First Lord of the Treasury. His Lordship has been succeeded by Lord Duncannon as Secretary of State for the Home Department; and the vacancy thus created has been filled up by the appointment of Sir John Cam Hobhouse.

The Revenue.-Our readers will perceive, by the following account, that there has been a considerable increase in the revenue accounts for the quarter. The increase on the year ended 5th July, 1834, as compared with the year ended 5th July, 1833, is 390,236l. ; but the increase on the quarter ended 5th July, 1834, as compared with the quarter ended 5th July, 1833, is 350,9521. The great increase in the quarter is in the Customs, being no less than 414,2051.

IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT.-HOUSE OF LORDS. June 23.— The Marquess of Westminster moved the second reading of the Bill for removing the civil disabilities under which the Jews labour, and contended at some length for the justice and policy of the measure.The Earl of Malmesbury moved, as an amendment, that the Bill be read a second time that day six months.-The Earl of Winchelsea supported the amendment, and denounced the measure as an insult to the Almighty; he dented that the Jews labour under any disadvantages which call for Parliamentary interference.—The Archbishop of Canterbury regretted that the subject should be pressed so soon again, after its rejection last year, and contended that as Christians, their Lordships were bound to reject the measure.— The Earl of Radnor maintained that upon Christian principles the Bill ought to pass. The conduct of the good Samaritan, and the principle of doing as we would be done by, were in favour of it.-- Lord Bexley also supported the Bill.- The Marquess of Westmeath supported the amendment.--Their Lordships divided-Contents, present, 24; proxies, 14;

total for the bill, 38. Non-contents, present, 80; proxies, 50; total against the bill, 130—Majority, 92.- The Bill was consequently rejected.

June 24.—The Bishop of Llandaff presented two petitions against the admission of Dissenters to the Universities, and made some remarks in support of them.

June 25.-On the motion of the Lord Chancellor, it was ordered that an address be presented to his Majesty for a copy of the first report of the Commissioners appointed to inquire into the means of forming a digest of the Criminal Law.-In answer to the Duke of Cumberland, the Lord Chancellor said he was anxious that the bill relative to the non-residence of the clergy should pass during the present session,

June 28.-Mr. Payne, the publisher of the “ Morning Post," was brought to the bar of the House to answer for a breach of privilege in arraigning the conduct of the Lord Chancellor. Mr. Payne stated that the control of the paper rested not with him, but with Mr. Bittleston, the editor; Mr. Payne was accordingly dismissed, and Mr. Bittleston ordered to appear.

June 30.-The proceedings in the case of the breach of privilege complained of by the Lord Chancellor were resumed, and terminated in the committal of Mr. Bittleston,

July 1.-Lord Wynford presented a petition from Mr. T. Bittleston, the editor of the “Morning Post," declaring that he was sincerely sorry for his offence, and praying their Lordships' pardon for the error he had committed. -Earl Grey, referring to the last case before their Lordships' House, observed that the printer was not discharged until the day after his petition was presented. He saw no reason for making any distinction in the present case. --The petition was then ordered to be taken into consideration on the following day:-Earl Grey presented a Bill to renew, until the 1st of August, 1835, the Irish Coercion Act, which is to undergo no alteration, except the omission of the court-martial clause.

July 2.-Mr. Bittleston was brought to the bar, and reprimanded by the Lord Chancellor; after which he was discharged on payment of the fees.The Poor Laws Amendment Bill was brought up from the Commons, and after some discussion was read a first time.

July 4.-Earl Grey then moved the second reading of the Irish Disturbances Suppression Bill.—The Earl of Durham objected to the Bill as at present framed, but observed that if the clause which gave the Government a power over political meetings were withdrawn, he would give the measure his support.- Earl Grey replied to the observations of his noble relative, whose motives he honoured and whose love of liberty he approved. But having done so he declared, with deep pain, his total and absolute dissent from the view which his noble relative had taken on this occasion-a dissent so total and absolute, that he declared if he could not propose the Bill with the clause that respected public meetings he would not propose it at all. Having enumerated the circumstances which, in his opinion, made out a case of necessity sufficiently urgent to justify the introduction of the Bill

, the noble Lord concluded by assuring their Lordships that he proposed this measure with the greatest reluctance, but from a sense of duty, which he should be the most unworthy man in existence if he neglected. The Bill was read a second time.

July 7.—The Earl of Wicklow presented a petition against the Irish Church Commission, and made some observations on the difference of opinion in the Cabinet respecting it.-Earl Grey said no Member of the Cabinet could disclose what passed in the deliberations of Ministers without a breach of duty.—The Duke of Richmond said his Majesty had given him permission to state what he thought necessary to explain his late resignation of office. - The Irish Coercion Bill went through a Committee without
