THE CRY -AT THE COMING ELECTIONS. Whoever hat perused the brilliant and entertaining novel o- "Coningiby," must remember the importance attached by certain Downing-street mediocrities to the selection of a good Ministerial" Cry," as one of (he most essential preparations for meeting a dissolution of Parliament. The necessity of such a prelude to the turmoil of an election, has not been lest sight of by the newly-installed Conservative Government. A II Cry" has been duly invented, and will speedily be forth. coming. It has, indeed, been already rehearsed at certain meetings, presumed to represent what is commonly termed the Country Interest, with a loudness and distinctness of articu- lation which allows of no doubt or misconception as to the precise words of which it is intended to consist. "Cheap Bread and Low Wages" is discarded as a worn-out and exploded formula which has long since had its day. ''Pro. tection to British Industry" is laid on the shelf, as a spell with which it may be dangerous to the electioneering interests of landlords themselves any longer to conjure, In the place of these, "Confidence in the Adminstration of the Earl of Derby" is to be the received watchwordâthe new I. Rune" or charm to be used for spreading delusion before the eyes of the British farmer, and of insuring the voices of rural constituencies to the support of a government, which has h therto done absolutely nothing to insure their gratitude, consideration, or respect, and which, judging from present appearances, is likely to do as little in days to come.-Leicester Chronicle.
