' TO THE EDITOR OF THE MEE0UBT. Sib,-You havo done mo an injustice hi stating that I was anxious to prevent a call of the House to consider Mr. Archer's motion. I am of opinion that there ought to bo such a coll, although it may be evaded, but I do think that to bring any im- portant motion on, without its being on the paper, ,18 wrong in principle, aud opposed to the Pai'liu uentarypracticeofeverydcliberativeAssembly. The delay of a few days surely can bo ol'no serious in- convenience; and I yet hopo that such a com so will be followed. Tour obedient ¡servant, EDWARD ABBOTT. Bellerive, 8th September, 1800. The General Hospital.-In alluding to the medical gentlemen who give their services gra- tuitously to the General Hospital, we omitted the name of Dr. Bright, Junior. This gentleman has been most assiduous in his attendance at the Hos- pital, nor was it with any intention of underrating the value of his services that his name was not mentioned.

COMPENSATION. (FROM THE TIMES, 26TH JUNE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 13 September 1860
COMPENSATION. (from the times, 2Gth June.) When the terrible word " compensation" is seen in the debates of last night, the prescient public will at once have a passing sensation of the same sort as that which used to be inspired by the magio words " Stand and deliver" on Hounslow-heath. The common on which these outrages are committed in these days is the domain of the law. No reform can there be done till a numerous body in possession of the ground have beeu bought off on tho hand- somest terms-terms handsomer by far than the cleverest Irish tenant ever exacted out of the weakness of landlord. As a matter of course, the cost of the compromise must be thrown on the Consolidated Fund. Such was the proposal which last night disturbed the grave security of the House,threw Her Majesty's Attorney-General into a paroxysm of peevish» ness.and nearly shipwrecked a necessary measure. Sir li. Bethell Las tied to bis Bankruptcy Bill a modest proposal for compensation to the atouunt of £20,000...
