THE  NEW  Tt may %e remembered that 'In a previous  article we hazarded the opinion that a Ministry could not fee formed composed entirely  of 'OpftOflftion members. That opinSon has  been verified by the fact that Mr DeCosmoa  has retained as his colleagues two of the  gnembwe of the late Administration to assist  him in the task to which he has been called,  and It Is aa element of great strength in the  present Government. No better refutation to  tbe slanders of the Coloaiet newspaper against  the late Government can possibly, be given  than the action of the present Premier,In  -choosing ICessrs. Walkemand Robertson to  assist him in administering the affairs of tbo  country. He baa by so doing so strengthened  his position as to render it almost impregnable, and given evidence that be possesses  judgment and experience of a very "high  order. There should be, and doubtless will  he,'fait criticism upon the acts of foe Gov-  not efficiently fill tbe'potHfons assigned them.  We must frankly admit that nothing but the  eonstitttfioh of,we new Ministry reconciles no  to the dtsHolutipn of the old one; and  although we do not suppose any very material  ���������change will-be made in the programme proposed toy tbe late Ministry, we shall anxiously  await advices that will give us an insight into  fchelr plans. ? \  No - Eticnoir.���������Neither Mr Robertson nor  ���������Mr Walkem, although accepting office in the  new Ministry, will be compelled to go before  their, constituents for re-election. The 32d  section of the Constitution Act provides that  if a u member of the Executive Connail, who |  is also a member of the Legislative Assembly,  resigns bis office and within one month after  his resignation accepts any other office, but  stilt remains a member of the Executive  Council, he shall not thereby vacate his seat  In the said -Assembly;? Now, however well  we m$.y be satisfled with the working of this  section in the present case, it, is nevertheless  entirely opposed to tbe spirit of our existing  inatitntttfcs. and needs to be amended. To  bold an elect!cb now would, of course, con*  i^'iaent, biitfaetlpuB opposition, owing to same very valuable time? and if the House  the wisdom of the Premier, is reduced to a wejp nothdjourned would leave Mr Walkem's  NEW ADVERTISEMENTS  TO1CE OF COTOTIEBSHiP.  qpHE UNDERSIGNED.

It would appear from pur telegrams that  J[r DeGosmos has undertaken to lead the  Jlinlstry without taking to hlinself an office  H5f emolument. Whatever may be his motive  for eo doing, it ls:but doing him. common jus-  lioe to suppose it to be a good one, and it is  * most convincing proof that,, although an  opponent of a Ministry, we believed in, he  was so from conviction and not from any de-  tire to aggrandise himself at .the, expense of  the country. - ' :':?;i?;.

The fac  titlons sneer eaai upon Mr Walkem for ac-  -cepting the Attorney Generalship, and the  assertion that precedes it, we simply do not  believe in.   It wag doubtless copied from  flome Victoria newspaper blinded by prejudice and disappointment, and with a visw to  oanse trouble at his re-election.  -There is one thing that passes our .comprehension?  How could Mr DeGosmos he so  ������rnel as to leave Mr Robson out in the cold.  Surely such treachery was worthy a reward,  -or has he met the usual fate of traitors, and  will learn too late that sincerity is lhe first of  virtues. - '..;.  11 Let no mortal leave thy onward path  (Although the earth should ope and from  The monlh of hell deptrnotion cry)  To take dissimulation^ winding way."  It really is too bad.   The Premier must  have been afraid that he who had betrayed  al! by turns would not be faithful to bis new  creed. He might have trusted the well known  "seal of a convert for a time at least.  That the appointments will cause consider  able heart-burnings and disappointment  among, those who have hitherto supported Mr  PeOosmos there is very little doubt, but we  think be has shown singular good judgment  and firmness in selecting bis colleague? The  task of governing our enormous territory,  with Its sparse population; is no easy one.  Tbe maximum of efficiency has to be attained  at the minimum of cost, and it is a problem  that might well puzzle far abler men than  those we have. As population increases, as  it. doubtless will, it will not be difficult of  solution. At present we are compelled to  maintain a staff of officers in several remote  districts: but crime must be suppressed and  justice placed within tbe reach of alL  Dr. Ash and Mr Beaven are comparatively  untried men, but. judging from their career in  u no re&aoa why they should  seat"vacant in the House until the return of  the writ. ��������� It is, therefore, perhaps well {that  he Constitution should remain as it is until  we have more rapid means of communication,  although we regard It aa establishing a very  dangerous precedent, as it gives an opportunity for an unscrupulous politician to  change sides and retain office even against  the wishes of his constituents.

Mr Hall regarded success as the great life  problem of every man? In order to a grand  success, being achieved, it is important that  we have just views respecting.our possibilities.   It Is our misfortune, that we, are not  aware of them.   Are* we chilled by the distance which stretches between us and those  whom history holds up as illustrations of success?   It is because we do not so much regard them as examples of success, as men  favored with endowments beyond the ordinary, lot-.ot mortals. Doubtless there are giants  in intellect as there are in-physical nature.  But wliile there:.ib a limit to physical devel-  opment,-there may not be assigned any limits  beyond which the mind may not*grow.   Ke  thought we ought to be familiarly impressed  respecting our nature"by.tbe?thought of the  dwelling place whichv the Great Architect,  our Anthor; has fitted up for us;   There; Is a  splendor in.it beyond which our imaginings  can scarce go?
