BETTER TIMES AT LAST. The debate on Mr. MCallagh Torrens' motion last Friday has produced, at any rate, one good result (remarks The Times). It has established beyond reasonable doubt the fact of improving prosperity in almost all parts of the country. That. confidence which the commercial disasters of 1866 appeared t.) banish from the land ha-) gradually returned. Pauperism is decreasing. The demand for 1, boar is brisk. Employ- ment for good hands is to be found with little diffi- culty, and there are few branches of trade in which work is not actively absorbed. Mr. GosVhen hit the truth when he said that the Soate aid" reallv needed by the British workman consisted, not in emi- gration tickets, but in good education and reduction of public burdens. Nothing that could be done in > he way of pecuniary subvention would have anything like the effect of revived trade and expanded intercourse. The opening of a new market or the development of a new industry would do more to relieve distress and promote employment than any practical scheme of assisted Emigration. We hope and believe that such may be the prospects now before us. There is no doubt great distress to be found, especially in some parts of the metropolis, and perhaps the metropolis may ratain longer than other towns the traces of a commercial calamity but it is impossible to doubt, after the evi- dence produced by Mr. Goschen, that we have now peon the worst of the misfortune, and that better times have come at las.t.
