The Slave Trade.—Earl Russell laid on the table the convention with the Government of the United States for the suppression of the slave trade. He said that that Government had shown very great anxiety to adopt stringent measures for carrying out the object in view.—The Bishop of Oxford, Earl Stanhope, and Earl Grey, all expressed their gratification at the announcement thus made.—In reply to Earl Stanhope, Earl Russell said the convention was to have effect for ten years, and was renewable at the expiration of that time.
