The diHcusnion in the House of LorcU of the bill for the diRestabliHhiuent of the Irish Church was resumed last evening, and con tinued during the night until 3 o'clock this morning, when, as announced ly a ca1l despatch, received this morning, the House divided, with the following result: In favor of passing the bill to the second reading, 179; against lit, 14C; giving a majority of 33 in favor, Considerable excitement attended the clos ing discussion of the measure, the galleries being crowded as well as the benches of the House. But there was no new point developed by the opponents of disestablishment, their Speeches being made up simply of reiterations Of the stereotyped arguments with which the world is already familiar, with an occasional impugning of the motives of Mr. Gladstone, the JMme Minister, and father of the bill. When the vote was taken 325 peers, as shown above, were present. The entire number en titled to seats in the House is about 4(!5, but there are soores of peers who habitually neglect the exercise of their hereditary privi leges as legislators, being more attached to the excitements of the turf and the joys of the wassail than to the strifes of party. Even when all the interests involved in the question are considered, the vote was an extraordinarily full one, and the majority, small as it was, ensures the final triumph of the project of disestablishment. The bill will now undergo the process of a caroful con sideration ;n detail. Attempts will be made by the i ' r ries to break its back with a burden cf amendments; but the chances are that none will be saddled upon it that will not receive the sanction of the House of Com mons. The conservative peers and English l)ishops who have spoken in favor of permit ting the bill to be read a second time, have all declared their purpose of insisting upon amendments which will modify materially the more objectionable clauses of the measure; and unless they should carry this purpose to the extreme and impair the vitality of the bill, in all probability the House of Commons will be found as ready to make some conces sions as the more sensible of the peers and bishops have been. When the bill first came before the House of Lords, there was every indication that it would be defeated by a majority of seventy or eighty votes, a probability which was appa rently increased by the action of the recent Conservative caucus. But the announcement of the result of this consultation developed an outburst of popular indignation that virtually decreed the destruction of the system of he reditary legislation. Wiser counsels have pre vailed, in response to the voice of the nation, and by its action this morning the House of Lords has received a new' and probably an indefinite lease of nominal power. The fact, however, that the bill has passed to a second reading by a majority of thirty-three votes, in the face of an unquestioned majority of fully twice that number against it, shows that the HouHe of Lords is now and henceforth more ornamental than useful, as far as legis lative purposes are concerned. It is merely the gilded figure-head of the ship of state; an institution possessing a high-sounding name, vet lacking all bnt the mere semblance of power. THE DETECTIVE SYSTEM. The recent removal of the Chief of the De tective force is only one of a series of cir cumstances which have attracted an unusual degree of attention to the workings of the Detective Department of Philadelphia. So far as the difficulty about the distribution of the reward for the capture Of the Bucks county criminal is concerned, it is but just to Mr. Eneu to say that he makes a strong de f ense, and that his allegation that he only fol lowed a standing rule in portioning out the $500 among all who had exerted themselves to produce the desired end appears to be well founded. The public can have no deep in terest, in squabbles of this nature, and they care little wnetner tne prize money was or was not doled out according to the strict rules of detective justice. The quarrel is only significant on account of the indication it gives that the detectives employed and paid fcy the city are more anxious to devise ways and means to increase their emoluments than to make a square stand-up, disinterested fight against crime and criminals. It may be very verdant to suppose munioipal detectives will consider their salaries a fair equivalent for their best services; but if their legitimate pay is not sufficient, it would be much better to inorease it than to encourage the disposition to keep a sharp lookout for -rewards, ani to form offensive and defensive alliances with thieves, counter feiters. and burglars. It is an old maxim that you should "set a thief to catch a thief, and a certain degree of familiarity with the haunts and practices of criminals is no doubt necessary to detect them But it is an easy matter ' to carry this idea too far, and corrupt associations between the officers of justice and the foes of society do infinitely more harm than good The spirit of our laws and of our people is well expressed in the enactments which for bid the compounding of felonies. But such enactments are of httlo use if detectives are permitted to grant a license for crime to petty criminals in exchange for their occasional aSNistance in securing the arrest'" of Ihg perpetrators of a giga&Uo robbery fvr whom a large reward is offered. The com plaint is made in various quarters that the detecti ve system is rapidly assuming . thi character; and a correspondent of a New York paper, writing from Philadelphia, says that "if the thieves were known and punished the business of detectives as well as thieves would be broken tip, and that would be a bad job for the officials." The Chinese are said to have a system of paying their phy sicians liberally while health is preserved, and of stopping salaries as soon as sickness occurs. Our detectives are compensated in a different way: they flourish and grow rich only when many startling crimes are perpe trated; and when they are not ani mated by a high sense of duty, it is easy to understand that they would not feel specially interested in preventing or diminish ing the growth of crime. Yet it is this ser vice, above all others, that ftie public desire and expect them to perform. If they cannot render it, the department might as well be abolished as a branch of municipal govern ment, and the public left to rely solely upon private detective agencies. All the bargainers with thieves, who conspire to make crime profitable, should be treated as common ene mies of society and punished as suchj and certainly the detectives in the pay of the city should be not only pure, but above suspi cion. THE MANNER OF T OTINO IN FRANCE. Under such a government as that of France everything connected with the management of public affairs is conducted on a precise system, which would perhaps not be either possible or desirable in a democratic country. It is certain, however, that too many safe guards cannot be thrown around the ballot- box, and in our large cities, at least, matters have come to such a pass that honest men of all parties see the necessity for more strin gent regulations in the manner of voting, even at the expense of some inconvenience to voters. As much interest has been ex cited by the recent French elections, a brief description of the manner of conducting the balloting will not be inopportune, and we may obtain an idea or two that will be of practical value to ourselves. Each elector is provided with a card show ing the district, the date of the election, and the name, age, and business of the bearer. This is his certificate of registration, and without it he is not permitted to deposit his vote. The election is conducted under the superintendence of the mayor of the arron dissement, or a delegate, who selects two of the oldest and two of the youngest of the electors present as aerutateurs or judges, and these, with the president and secretary, con stitute the bureau. At the appointed hour the polls are opened. and each elector hands his folded ballot to one of the serutateu'ra, who gives it to the presi dent, who drops it into the box after satisfy ing himself, that it is not duplicated. Ano ther scrutateur ascertains whether, the elector has his card, from which he tears off a corner, to show that he has voted. The polls are closed at G o'clock P. M., and the president ties a number of strings around the ballot-box, seals it, and gives it into the keeping of the soldiers of the National Guard. 1 The same routine is gone through with on each day, and then the election is over. The votes are counted immediately by the bureau on a large table, which is, by law, plaoed in such a manner that the electors can walk around them and inspect the operation to see that it is fairly done. No vote is noted on the tally-sheet until it is submitted to two of the scrutateurs. Two days afterwards the aggregate vote of the several precincts is counted at the Hotel de Ville by a commis sion, and if no candidate has received a majo rity of votes, a second election is held a week afterwards, when a plurality of votes is suffi cient. The main features in which this method of conducting elections differs from our own ara the counting of the votes in public, as to the expediency of which much may be said on both sides in this country, and the presenta tion of registration certificates by the electors. This appears to be an excellent and unobjec tionable plan for checking illegal voting, which we might adopt with propriety and benefit. It would impose no hardship or in convenience that citizens who are solicitous to prevent fraud would not readily submit to; indeed, it would be no inoonvenience at all, but rather an assistance to both electors and the election officers under our Registry law, and it is well worthy of the consideration of those who are anxious to preserve the purity of the ballot-box, and to make our elections fair expressions of public opinion. ' The esthcbiasm of the correspondents at the Boston Peace Jubilee is, of course, not to be measured by ordinary standards, but will naturally reflect something of tho grandeur of the occasion. One of the correspondents of the P?-es8 expects to hear something like it in a rather far distant future, but not until then. He says: ', "Never till I stand within the prates of tha 'far-on ceiemitti city,' aim imten to tne melody or the 'Hun dred and rorty-iour thousand' In white raiment, do I expuct to be moved as 1 was this afternoon by the juugiiR'iH nyiuu. - !

From facts that have come to our knowledge, it is evident that the attempt to open it was renewed on Sunday evening following. Finding all efforts to drill it useless, the effort was then made to break the lock. The hammering was heard by parties In the neighborhood for several hours, but supposing it tOi arise from the railroad men replacing a defective rail, excited n alarm. The tools, with the exception of the drills, were left.
