London, Nov. 13, 1880.-In the House of Commons this afternoon Mr. Matthews, the Home Secretary, stated that the resignation of General Sir Charles Warren as Chief of the Metropolitan Police was really due to his refusal to submit to the rule which forbids officials to publicly criticize government services. General Warren, in announcing his resignation, said Mr. Matthews, wrote that had he known that such a rule existed he would never have accepted the post.
