§ The Gallery was this day opened at one o'clock, and in the course of a few minutes every seat was occupied with gentlemen anxious to hear the Debate on the House going into a Committee on the Reform Bill. The Members themselves seemed to participate in the general anxiety: every seat in the lower part of the House was speedily labelled with the name of the Member who claimed it for the evening, and even several of the Benches in the Galleries were appropriated in the same manner. At three o'clock, when the Speaker took the Chair, there were more than three hundred Members assembled.
