tion of the foreign office voto for the pur
pose of taking tho judgment of the lloitsa
on tho nominee of Lord Lytton, the llrititth
Ambassador at Paris, on tho occasion of
Tiio opening of tho Ficncb exhibition.
Sir J ii meg Fergusson, Under Foreign
(secretary, tloniod that Lord Lytton's ab
sence was duo to n prearranged under
standing between European Government.
It was the opinion of tho Houso that the
country ought not to have anyihing to do
with tho celebration of a revolution re
garding which political parlies in Franco
remained bitterly dividud. Conservative
I'heera. When s nation was unaniinaus
in its rejoicings on the centenary of a great
historic event there could bo no impro
priety in the Queen's representative being
present at the ceremonies commending
etieh event. Thus Ixird licuconsflcld au
thorized the Rritiah Minister utWahfiingion
to tako part in the rc:oinoniu.i that uttcud
cd the centenary of American independ
ence. 4 lie French ivleliration was in no
way analogous to that of the I'nited Slates.
Furlhermciro, the absence of Lord Lytlon
bad aroused no dissatisfaction hi France.
Mr. Gludslone acquitted the Govoru
liient of having acted in concert with other
powers in the matter, but ho blamed the
ministry for nn error o( judgment. He
thought I-ord Lytlon should havo been
present at the oching of the exhibition.

to allow M. Lagtiorre to make such sn in

i'iitirely Independent in this matter, as
the issue was ci s judicial character, i lie

Tho President of tho N-nalc, while sitting

that tho procedure was slow. If no debate
