Resolutions [July 21, 22] reported.

On the Vote relating to Friendly Societies,

said, it was expected that the Assistant Solicitor to the Treasury would be employed in discharging the duties of this office pro- visionally for at least 12 months; he therefore proposed that they should reduce the Vote by £400 for his salary, one-half the Estimate made on the presumption that the office would be promptly refilled. First Resolution read a second time, and amended, by leaving out "£1,794," and inserting "£1,394," instead thereof.

Resolution, as amended, agreed to.
