that sueh an establishment here must, of necessity become a failure. Now, from this proposition, in the lace of tho appalling amount
of figures brought to hear against it, wc entirely dissont. Assuming that our cotempo-
rary's figures are correct, wo think  Ihe con-
hcr liberal government and institutioni
glisli law is American law ; but we candidly
confess we prefer liberty in its good old English garb,  than  when   dressed in   republican
garments.     But though the  Colonist is the
originator and possessor of everything honest,
good, and pure—editor included—still wo cannot help thinking we  know something about
colonial matters, after fifteen years' experience,   not in Nova Scotia, but every colony
ii#»ler the  British Crown—not even excepting   Hong  Kong.      AVe  therefore  meekly
cling to our own ideas upon the matter, and
to our love for the'dear little island-' and wc
are afraid that in  this respect we shall get
credit for that John Bull obstinacy so much
spoken of by foreigners.    Wc shall continue
to nurture these feelings, and abOVO all this
[.one—that we dont like tu sec our money going into other people's pockets without receiving some equivalent  in  exchange,   and
dependence on other powers or places, is a
proposition that sounds not prettily in our
ears; therefore  in despite   of our eotempo-
rary's sentiments upon this subject it is probable that  we shall support our. " Financial

propheciod ruin, and confer a lasting benefit

POLICE COURT.
28th December, 1809.
(Before Mr. Justice Pkhiieiitox.)
.Mr. John Doran, carrier of the llrilisli Colonist newspaper, was brought up on a warrant, charged by Mr.
W. V. Ilerrie. with committing an assault upon him that
morning. Mr. Doran admitted the assault, but plead
in justification, that Mr. W. P. Heme's statements as
contained in the Gaz.tt? are untrue, consequently he
had a right to assault him. Mr. Justico Pemberton,
having heard thc eviil nee which went to prove the assault, (and that Mr. Heme's clerk had heard some one
threaten to kill him, \}ir. Ilerrie.] which threat Mr.
Ilerrie swore Mr. Doran had used to him.)—bound both
parties over to keep the peace for six months towards
all of her Majesty's subjects, and lined Mr. Doran 40s.

proposed bills, the views taken by ihe executive of bills
introduced by private members, and answers to the
numberless questions of which notice is every day given
in the house of commons; it is scarcely possible to seo
how business can be carried on.
There is another important consideration on the
other hand, that if government ollieials are ineligible,
it is placed in the power of n dospolic executive, lo
nominate and retain in ollice, what tools it may think
fit, utterly regardless of the repugnance of the people,
who have then only the resource of ph eing themselves
in open and indecent opposition to the executive itself,
by votes of censure, addresses of disapproval, &c,—a
situation which tends to embitter, and render dangerous the conflicts, already sufficiently dangerous and
bitter, of political differences. If the government
official be in the House himself, he can bo thwarted,
and his measures outwitted; he nay even be rejected by
every constituency, and so prevented from being any
longer u useful tool, without any such indecent conduct
or embarrassing situation arising.
But if he be debarred from presenting himself before
n constituency for their approval, if he be debarred from
appearing in person to explain and support in tl.c House
the measures which he has introduced, it is evident thai
an unscrupulous executive may allege that there is no
lesi by which to ascertain the disapproval ofthe cle tors,
that he is misunderstood, und has no opportunity o'
proving Ihe benefits to be derived Irom his measures,
and retain him in power accordingly.

•would  daily   increase  (it is put at the minimum  by our cotemporary), and  the advantages of having a mint of our own will be apparent to the people in  nil  these many ways
which   our  cotemporary   so  graphically   describes.    AVe venture to say,  it will not only
shortly pay its own expenses, hut will become a
source of revenue   to these   colonies, and we
sincerely thank  the   Hume Government and
our able and energetic Treasurer, for the zeal
and promptitude displayed  in the matter—a
boon, which Australia did not obtain for years,
has been accorded to us at once; and we are
well aware that to tlie Treasurer is tho credit
due.    Wc anticipate a rich harvest from the
mines next year, and were we to wait, as the
Colonist so prudently advises, we should see a
whole year's profit slip through  our lingers.
The taste in which the article we are commenting upon was written, was as had as its
lo"ic.   Our cotemporary cannot help always
protruding its disgust at any word, thought, or
sentiment English, and in this special instance
loudly and undisguisedly crows at tho hoped-
for fact, that we must always remain dependant upon San Francisco.     Were our cotemporary avowedly American  in  his feeling and
sentiment,  and  were   he to   come   forward
any boldly hoist his colors we could pass over
bis  partiality,   as wc  honor all   those   who
honor their country.    Tearing away a thin
veil of statistics and wretched logic, we discover nothing but chagrin and  ill-humor, at
the idea ofthe Queen's Head  usurping the
place of tho American Eagle, und the badge
of " Merrio England " that of the emblem oi
republican liberty.    What our cotemporary
means   by our  "objecting  to have  liberty
thrust beneath our noses," we cannot understand.    If it be an insinuation that wc dislike
liberty, we can only attribute it to his general
ignorance of English feelings and character.

casury, pure, disinterested, patriotic. On this occasion there-
■;m one fore, let us bow down and worship the Golden Image
the " Caucus" hath set up. But how if tho Image be
brazen? How if vanity und a bilious temperament, ignorance, cunning, political dishonesty, unscrupulous
abuse, be the characteristics of the future Nominees?
How if the nomination be itself obtained by pledges of
a personal character to the members of the ''Caucus"—
little tit-bits for each of Ihe family? How il wirepulling, juggling, and duplicity, bo the weapons of the
Nominees'.' Suppose, for instance, the Town Candidate
were to cry up "Free Port, or Death," and the Country
Candidate ''Protective Duties in favor of Homo Produce." Suppose a popular member, armed with the
terrors of his Name, in combination with self-styled
11 Reformers," should menace with the vials of his
wrath, all those who dared to Ihink otherwise than he
chose- will it have been wise to have tamely submitted
to the infallibility of a creature who like (he monster
Frankenstein, may become our tyrant and haunt us to
our death. And suppose (and imagination can go no
further) suppose that a wolf—long, lean, und hungry,
who shall have forsworn allegiance to his Queen and
his country, were to conic forward in sheep's clothing,
and, under cover of the "(.'uncus'' Ticket, strive to sow
dissention between our Colonial and English population,
shall we then escape our deserved ignominy, and become
tho laughing stock of our enemies—the victims of our
self-created tyrants—bought, sold, slaughtered und devoured at shambles of our own erection—who shall pity
us?

II. M. S. Ganges and Tribune.—These vessels nre
stated in Tuesday's Colonist, to be about leaving for
England with tho marines recently embarked. This is
incorrect; these vessels will not go home for some
months. The marines were embarked because the Co |
Ion sill authorities were desirous of diminishing the expenses of the Colony. Fur our purl we would have
retained this Useful body of men. and sent off the Sappers and Miners, us one Sapper costs more than three
Marines, and certainly the Murines have been mure
useful. Were the Chief Commissioner to employ the
skill mid talents of the fine body of men under his orders ill their legitimate duties, and for which thoy were
sent out, viz.. iu thc nniking of roads, we should not
object to their remaining, but under present circumstances we consider that they arc a useless burthen
upon the Colony.
The Indians.—It is high time steps were taken to
prevent the recurrence of attacks on the purl of Indians similar to the one committed upon Captain Nngle
some short time since. We are informed that during
the past week several gentlemen have been molested on
the Esquimalt Road, and a naval ollicer had a pi-tol
discharged at him as he was riding home some few
nights since. They must be cleared out of the vicinity
of the Town, otherwise the scalps of some of our
worthy citizens may be non est before long.

This is certainly, in the United States, a disqualification
for Congress. But it is to bo observed that in the
United States. Ihe Senate or Upper House is not nominated, as in Groat Britain ami her colonies, but elected.and
elected by the same body 118 the Lower House: and il
operates as no disqualification for a seat in the Senate
to have a government office.
In effect, the principal Secretaries are, if I mistake
not. always Senators.
The reason ofthe disqualification in the United Statos,
therefore, fails here : andjl, for my part, would wish thai
the majority of the ollieials were eligible, which would
practically render it necessary that they should find
some constituency to endorse the appointment of the executive.
So far, therefore, from thinking Mr. Cary's official
Station a disqualification, it is in my opinion, his highest
recommendation : it will render him a much more useful Attorney General, if he be a member of the House
of Assembly, and a much moro useful member of thc
House, if he be Attorney General. As to its being legal
that he can sit if elected, there is, of course, not the

Si
Cato tho Censor, being ono timo scurrilously treated
by a man who led a dissolute nnd infamous life, answered and said:—" It is upon very unequal tonus that
I contend with yon : for you arc accustomed to be
spoken ill ot, and can speak of it with pleasure ; but
with 1110 it is unusual to hear it, and disagreeable to
spaak it." Such, also, is our reply to the polite epithets applied to us in Saturday's Colonist. We deemed
it our duty, as journalists, to expose an attempt to corrupt the purity of our elections, nnd a design to introduce un-English systems and sentiment into these now
colonies. These charges, although applicable nnd
truthful, wero directed against no one in particular,
and an innocent person would certainly have had no
grounds to come forward in refutation; the public will
consequently easily understand the adaptation of the
saving—"Whom the cap fits," .vc. A respectable col
orod man brought us a letter, which wc published, reflecting, in a political light, on tho editor of the Colonist; we had nothing whatever to do cither with tho
sentiment or circumstance therein contained. We do
not think it necessary lo touch nny further upon the
subject, and so long ns our cotemporary dignifies his
. in :—It is with surprise that I have heard Ihe objec
tion raised against the eligibility of Mr. Cary to a seat
in our House of Assembly, that he is a government ol
ficinl, I mention this gentleman's name, ns the objection
is raised quite generally, apart from any personal topic,
favorable or unfavorable to Mr. Cary himself. It is laid
down broadly, that no government official ought, to be
a member of that body: iuasmui ii as holding an ollice
may be presumed to have a tendency to influence his
views and his vote in the House. That this tendency
may well be conceived to exist unknown, nl all events,
in a great measure unknown, to the member himself!
nay, the more honorable his disposition, the less likely
ho would be to suspect himself of being liable to such
1111 influence. It is agreed, therefore, that he cannot
have, or carry into clfcct an independent opinion, nnd
that thei nfluenco thus exerted on his views, will be so
much thcjinore irresistible, usi [isless suspected by himself. These views are, I havo reason to believe, entertained by honest electors, and are not put forward for
more parly purposes; they seem, therefore, to deserve
to be discussed.
The first observation I shall make is, that there is no
popular constitution in the world, nor can there well be
conceive,), to be any, in whichjsuch a reasoning is allowed
to prevail. To commence with the constitution of thc
mother country, the lode-star and model from which
every other is derived, it is quite notorious, not only
that government officers are quite clegible to sit in ihe
House of Commons, but that the most influential government officials must necessarily be there; if they do
not, no ministry could stand for a month. The chancellors of the exchequer, and two at least of the Secretaries of State must iu practice find constituencies to
ratify the selection, and confidence of the sovereign—or
the ministry must fall. In all Ihe past ministries, since
thc Reform Bill, all the leaders have been in the Lower
House. Sir Robert Pool, tho greatest of them all, it is
well known, was so fully 11 varc of the necessity of. n
scat in Ihe Lower House, for the maintenance of his
power, that he repeatedly refused a peerage, and in his
wi 1 laid his i ;j unction upon his sons lo follow the same
policy In the present ministry, what would become of
Lord Palmerston's or Lord John Russell's influence if
they were in the Upper House? And so iu nil the colonics of Croat Britain—whose Constitutions are modeled
from hers ; all, or most of the principal government
officers arc eligible to sit in the popular Houso—tho
House of Assembly.
Unless the executive, whose ollice it is lo originate
measures of legislation, have so,no recognized spokesman in the House, to afford explanation, asked or unasked, of the policy of the govornmont,  tho objects nf
is a notable example. Her trade and industry form the
basis of her power, yet the revenue of her manufactures,
commerce, and personal capital, does nut exceed two
thirds of thc revenue demand from her agriculture alone.
This fact surely points out how important it is to encourage fanning pursuits. In this noble art, Great
Britain has taken the lend, and we find as the result, a
corresponding nmotit of intelligence and civilization.
The United Slates. Russia, Prussia, and othor nations
alike testify to the degree of pre-eminence, attributed
to Ihe agricultural element of national wealth. In the
Slates of America, the wise policy is pursued of inducing immigration by making concessions of land, concc 1-
ing to them the exclusive possession by pre-emption.
This cxcllent system gives In everyone who is the head
of a family, the right 10 inn acres upon paying the minimum price of one dollar and a qunrtor an acre, about
live shillings English currency, nnd the iminigiaiit may
settle 011 land at once, whether Surveyed or mil. This
privilege has been of Ihe greatest possible advantage
to the immigrant, und has done much towards peopling vast territorial posessions, besides tending largely
to the expanding of the country—tho happiness and
prosperity ofthe great masses of the people, and it has
done more towards the promotion of settlements, and
the developenient of their agricultural resources than
all other causes combined. Tens of thousands of wretched indigent families, have by this superior law, been
enabled to obtain comfortable homes, und vast wilds
have been subdued into civilization, exhibiting tho
peaceful homestead ofa prosperous and happy people.
Sueh is the condition of things in the neighboring .slates.
How do mutters stand with us? What I ai been done to
settle up the country'.' The answer is short and simple,
nothing. What has been dune to discourage the pooplo-
ing of the vast surplus which still lies invnlulesi waste?
The answer is equally brief—everything. The policy
pursued has been disasleruiis in Iho extreme, and unexampled in the history of any other dependency of the
British crown, and pcrtcnucioudy persisted in for
reasons as yet unexplained to the public, and to them
incomprehensible. Grievously indeed havo those persons who have given consideration of the subject of colonization, and who have felt deeply in the future ofthe
colony complain, but to no avail. Every obstacle has
been cast in the way ofthe agriculturalist, who desired
to settle in the colony. This I testify to as a fact, and
I ilo not think that any conscientious man can he found
to gainsay it. The inflexible, reply to one and all, has
been that land could not be had even at govornmont
price, or upon any terms until lirst surveyed nnd put up
to auction, and that * squatting or pre-emption would
not only not be tolir.ited, bul, such aggression would be
visited by the summary process of ejectment by the
stern arm of the law. Such has boon the discourng-
1 ing announcment which greeted hundreds of emigrants
| who were anxious to settle in the colony, nud who had
a lull knowledge of all the natural obstacles incident
to such settlement, and amongst them wero many who
had ample moans to improve their allotments, and provide for their immediate support. Has not the colony

TO THE ELECTORS OF VICTORIA.
GENTLEMEN:
1 have much pleasure in accepting the kind nssist-
mce you have olfered me, and can only sny that, 1
will, if rcturne I for your town, do every thing in my
power to justify your good opinion. I propose shortly,
in thc most public manner to reiterate, the policy which
1 believe should be followed in this colony, and in the
meantime 1 will say that wo must keep Victoria a free
Port, never admitting the thin end of the wedge,
whether it comes in the shape of protective duties in
favor ot hotiie"*nT%jd^iairjrr_jjjidcr cover of annexation.
We must settle up the available land iu (lie colony,
and we can only effect this result by a judicious preemptive system. Our taxation must be direct and
equalized; unimproved hinds must bear a special burden, and your town must be incorporated. The. whole
procedure of the courts of Justice must be set on a
new footing—cheapness, rapidity, and finality, must be
introduced. A Registration system, obviating the necessity of Deeds, must be carried through. Th.' Indians must be tried by Indian commissioners, unfettered
by the technicalities and refinements which render
their punishment so difficult and expensive. Law and
Equity must no longer be divided, and the time ol
Jurors no longer wasted. Your House of Representatives must take upon themselves the civil expenditure
of the colony, and exert their control over its finance.
With regard to ihe Hudson's Buy Company, I am not
disposed to join in any crusade against them iu their
private capacity, any more than lo allow them an nd-
vantage over the colony—as to their alleged claim 1 do
not believe in ils existence, or that it has ever been
ventilated except by the so-called "Reformers," and
when set up, it must be tested in the manner usual in
nny private case of contested account. Whenever the,
interests of the two colonics threaten to clash, 1 will
resign my official position in the colony, where I can
bo least useful. In conclusion I can only thank you
again, and have the honor to remain gentlemen,
Your most obedient servant.

\J( the wishes ot a considerable number ot thc electors of your District, as a candidate to represent yon at
the ensuing eleelion.
I claim your suffrages us a liberal and independent
Reformer.
Every measure ihat will promote the rapid growth of
this promising Colony, und foster ils real progress, will
have my warm support,
The present depressed state of the Finances of (his
country, demands early and serious attention, and, in
order to keep taxation within the smallest possible limits,
the utmost economy and prudence in administering the
resources ofthe country, consistent with the efficiency
of the public service, must be observed.
I am firmly convinced that the continuance of the present Free Port, iu the face ofthe heavy duties imposed
on merchandise by neighboring countries, will so attract to our shores shipping and commerce from nil
parts of tho world, as to ronder this place eventually
the emporium ofthe Pacific.
I am desirous of aiding any feasible plan for the improvement of our postal communications, that will uot
prove a burthen ou colonial funds.
t nm in favor of an assisted emigration of the industrial classes, to enhance the value of land nnd its produce, and to distribute the necessary public expenditure
over as largo an area as possible.
I am opposed to the appropriation of Slate Funds to
thc endowment of nny particular religious denomination. Every church should bo supported by its own
members.
A liberal and well digested Land System, that, will
open up the prjuiuctivo resources of the country, and
increase the number of bona-lido settlers, will be
steadily advocated by every menus in my power.
I shall bo prepared to forward every measure that
will tend to the establishment of a large export I rude
in timber, lumber, and the other staples of the island.
I shall steadily oppose all measures which would
tend to nny combination of political power and privilege in the hands of a chartered few to the detriment of
individual enterprise in the colony at large.
lf elected, 1 am prepared lo introduce such Reforms
as are necessary for the adaptation of English law to
the exigencies of the colony.
It is of the utmost importance, that prompt mensures
be adopted to improve the condition of our Roads,
Bridges nnd Harbors; and tho purchase money of
public lands should in the first instance bo devoted to
thi" purpose.
I shall furlhor to the utmost, all mensures of a
sound liberal progressive nature, that will promote the
benefit of tho colony ; and the development offroo institutions will ever find in me, should 1 havo the honor
of being elected your Representative, a_ zealous and
hearty supporter.

"N'TLEMEN: In compliance with the wishes of
oral influential Electors of the Town of Es-
[uimalt, I have come forward to solicit your suffrages
at the ensuing Election. I propose doing myself the
honor of waiting personally upon ouch of you on the
earliest occasion, and in the interim 1 wish briefly to
explain the principles upon which I venture to ask your
support.
1 am a reformer in thc true acceptation ofthe term,
(i. e.) I will at all times give my most earnest support
to every measure calculated to advance the true interests of the Colony, and am equally determined to
resist those of any anti-progressive tendency. To preserve Victoria a Free Port, 1 will use my best exertions.
As one who has tho real interests of the Church al
heart. 1 wish in our young Colony to see her self-supporting.
Ileini;' fully convinced that the interests both of Victoria and Esquimalt, demand a well surveyed andsound-
ly built road from one Town to the other, I will do all
in my power tu obtain that object.
Should  you  do me the honor to  return  me as your1
Representative  in tho House of Assembly,  about to be
summoned,  I pledge myself to use every  exertion to
further tho welfare of the Town of Esquimalt and that
of the Colony nt large, and

TO THE ELECTORS OF THE LAKE   DISTRI T.
GENTLEMEN ;—At the request of several electors, I
beg to oiler myself as a candidate for your suffrages at the ensuing election, to represent you in the
House of Assembly.
I advocate the thorough reform of all abuses, and
earnestly desire to see the colonization of this country
loyally and honestly encouraged.
Every church in my opinion should bo supported by-
its own members.
Every measure that will tend to dcvclope the resources of this Island will have my cordial support.
As a landowner I shall strongly urge upon the Government the paramount and immediate necessity of the
appropriation of nil moneys, derived from thc sale of
country lands, to making roads, bridges, and other improvements in the several districts from which these
funds arise.
I consider thc success of this Colony greatly depends
upon keeping the ports free, and I am opposed to the
annexation of this Island to British Columbia.
Should I have the honor to be elected your representative, I shall always be found at my post, ready to advocate all liberal and independent measures of reform,
calculated, according to my best judgment, to benefit
the colony at large, and more especially those tending
to prevent the political power of this country from being
made an engine of any monopoly or injustice nt the expense of our population nt large.
I have the honor to be, gentlemen, your most obedient servant,

TO THE
ELECTORS 0? VICTORIA TOWN.
Gentlemen:
Responding to the support proffered me by numerous
Electors, I am induced to offer myself as a Candidate
to represent your interests in tho House of Assembly.
Impressed with the importance of the position to
which I aspire, and of tho moro than ordinary duties
that must devolve upon the members of the next Parliament, I shall if elected, endeavor to perform my full
share of the Public work, pursuing a perfectly independent and liberal course upon nil questions, and towards all parties, seeking to effect a unanimity of
action in the adoption of measures of genuine reform,
to advance this colony, and render it what it is destined
to become, the future Groat Britain of the Pacific.
Identified ns 1 am with commerce, I earnestly desire
to see this port made a great emporium for British and
European manufactures, whence the markets on this
coast, including also those of the Sandwich Islands,
Northern China, and the Amoor countries mny bo supplied Our geographical position, with capital and
Free Trade to buck it, I urn satisfied would establish
that cheapness here which is the attracting and governing power of commerce. In our Porosis, Fisheries,
Coal and other Minerals, we have resources to furnish
large exports, nnd to return cargoes ot our own producing, if properly encouraged.
The Reciprocity Treaty existing between ( amida and
the United States, should bo extended to  this side, between us and our neighbors.
We need an Ocean Mail Service.
This Town must bo incorporated, with  Gas nnd
Wuler privileges reserved for its special benefit.
Our Island should be thoroughly explored, the Government Lands disposed of liberally to actual settlers,
and the proceeds applied to the making of roiids, nnd
Iho aiding immigration, with the preference given to
respectable females.
In dealing with our Finances, wc must sock to uphold
and ostablish our colonial credit. I have heard it
stated that wo have the incubus of a debt to begin
with. It is a British maxim that you cannot dispose of
a man's property without his consent. I mil not
aware that the Parliament of this colony has over voted
supplies for which it had not provided ways and means.
If therefore tho Hudson's BayOompany claim any debt
ns now due to them, they must seek redress from tho
proper quarter; for my part, I pledge myself most
emphatically to resist upon constitutional grounds, the
payment of any such claim by the people of this colony.
I advocate the collection of Revenue by Direct Taxation, charged upon property, and not upon industry.
Our expenditure must be regulated by strict economy.
The present Franchise Act I regard as a temporary
measure, wholly insufficient for tho requirements of a
now colony.
In relation to tho manv other important questions of
Iho day, such as the support of Churches, Schools,
Asylums, and Prisons; tho adoption of a Registration
Act. for Lauds, kc, kc, 1 will postpone their discussion
until I shall have tho pleasure of personally meeting
you, when I will explain my views ou thoso and other
subjects in detail.

The following opinion of the Attorney General upon
the subject of the lands allotted to settlers in the Che-
manis District, is herewith published for general Information.
By Command,
William A. G.YouNO,
Acting Colonial Secretary.
I AM of opinion thnt tile contract disclosed by the
correspondence concerning the Chemnnis settlement
contains nothing which clothes a petitioner ur Claimant
with the right to sell his allotment. I am further ot
opinion that iho vendor loses his claim by selling, and
that the purchaser, from SBch claimant, would take
nothing by his purchase ; and I would recommend that,
nt some future period, a right to sell shall bo given
to every settler who bus improved and settled his hinds
ton certain extent, and that bona tide settlers should be
confirmed in their claims. But in order to prevent tho
land from being lakeii for speculative purposes (which
has already occurred to a great extent.) I would sug
gest that the license in question should be retained at
present, and that a registry of cbiimnnts should be nt
once opened. If such a course as I have suggested is
taken, thc speculator cannot, any moro than now, hold
his land without settlement nnd improvement, much
less sell it: be would not therefore claim, but reave to
the bona tide settler a fair proportion of the useful land!

Gentlemen, we are much indebted to thc liberal members ofthe late House of Assembly for
tho Reform Bill, as passed last session;
but it is an incomplete and partial measure.
There can be no dispute, but that population is the natural basis of representation ;
nature intended that all men should enjoy an
equality-of political rights, and although in
days gone by restrictions have been imposed,
thc time is evidently fast
approaching when
they will be abolished. Now, it musl be cloai
to you, that thc more thc suffrage is extended,
the more is the power ofthe government in
the hands of I he people, and the less nre Ihey
liable to arbitrary legislation ; for it is far
easier to bribe, coerce, or influence a small
constituency than a large one, and you there-!
fore cannot, I fee! sure, bo content with the
modicum of reform obtained from the late
Legislature. Many intelligent men havo been
shut out from having a voice in the affairs of
