LONDON LETTER. IFFTOJI OuR LONDON COBBESFONUENT. J [SPECIALLY WIRED. | LONDON, Monday Niht. A GOVERNMENT SURPRISE- The abandonment by the Government of its project for taking the second rcadilJg" of the Home Rule Bill before Euster came as a profound surprise upon the listening House. In the absence of Mr Gladstone, cold taken in his zealous attendance at Hampstead Church on > .Sir William Harcnurc made the. an- nouncement of the Ministerial ie r in a very quiet and matter-of- ac wHo'li fashion After a. second's pause_ :n *hich both sides of the House seemet s » K«sp the full force of the with its sudden relaxation tension, the Tories and Unionists gave full- "Zph ^rZLmpalvm and jMm obstruction.

This is caused ILV by the'relief itself than by the triumph Vf the unhallowed tactics wmch have brought it about. The mere postponement could be borne, its disappointment being mitigated hvtlie fact that after faster the Opposition will have played its trump card-its appea. t- the passions of Ulster and to the jinglish [lorance of the Irish question, and there ^•[1 then be no shadow ot excuse for longer drying to come to close quarters in the gbt oycr the Bill on the floor of the House, THE BETTEl PART OF VALOUR. At least if any excuses be devised they will be so transparent as fatally to damage the Unionists in the eyes of the countiy. Tf- ig recognised by Mi Nationalists, not fes3 than by English Radicals, that the onlf alternative to this mortifying postpone- ment was a strained extension ot the tui- mnil of last Friday's wrangle over the whole of tl-e weeks up to Easter attended either by »n absolute paralysis of legislation, oi the F In<r ev°rv vote down the throat of the recalcitrant minority by sheer strength. Even K hottest-headed Liberal admits that this Id have made bad blood, and however Inflatable, it is seen that discretion has beS the better part of valour. A DAMP SQUIB. The manifest enjoyment with which Mr F.' blu.y entered upon tno painful duty of lix g Mr Conybeare a breach of pnv.- 1 was destined to early eclipse. His ^? j, Jci colleagues, still smarting under delig the dismal brief that over- \Volmer and the Times, smacked lTr<? at the prospect of this tit for tat. ?t'ir before t'M Speaker rose the recital of ~ve'l .s letter did not bring them n°vrd" satisfaction, for the Liberals "wVaop.-ovii.gly sod. declarations »s r "no .sane man can honestly mam- Tat that the whole debate yesterday, f n the first, four speeches, was not ft,fter Vtruetion." This rather took the J661' ff Mr Hanbury's heroics. The House edge op a geemly silence, implying awe when it heard Mr Speaker shurld^ "severely snubbing the accuse^ r ]nor'cais wh0 move the closure, wthor th«n trembled attho thev could be overcome.

THE CAUSE OF DELAY. It may be supposed that the Times will to-morrow agree that the Government has taken its advice in postponing the second reading of the Home Rule Bill until after Easter, that is April 6th, but the ("Thunderer'' had nothing to do with it. When Mr Gladstone is ill, the Home Rule gill is ill, for he alone can combat the terrible debates threatened from all sides, and in a hurried conversation with Sir William Harcourt this morning before he took to his bed, Mr Glad- stone agreed it would be better to take the Home Rule Bill after Easter, when it could be proceeded with every day until finished. BITTER DISAPPOINTMENT. It would be idle to deny that intense disappointment prevails to-night in the Radical and Irish ranks with regard to the announcement made this afternoon that the second reading of the Home Rule Bill is to be postponed until after the Easter recess. It is felt that unless the Government were pre- pared to push forward the Bill at all hazards no attempt should ever have been made to get the second reading through before the adjournment. The prevailing fear is that by giving way to the obstructive tactics of the" Opposition the Ministry have shown a. sign of weakness, from which it will be difficult to recover. Of course the Tories and Unionists are to-nigut in a great state of delight, and talk of their success as a great and significant victory.
