Let us glance at the most prominent agitations that are at present visible. They may be divided into Political and Social. In the political sphere we have the Financial ques- tion, running off into four branches the Cobdcnite and Manchester section, the Gladstone and Liverpool, the Liver- pool Confederation movement, and the Currency question. SaV'^litf^M^^oives'tYie great of Church and State. The repeal of the Navigation Laws, which involves the great question of perfect Free Trade. Colonization, which includes the management and govern- ment of our Colonial Empire. Pauperism, which includes the entire principles that govern the foundations of property and the relations of human beings and things. Ireland, itself bristling with reforms, from the Tenure of Land to the separation of Church and State, and certainly with work enough for a Parliament entirely devoted to it. The Suffrage question, Triennial Parliaments, and Vote by Ballot, or to express it more comprehensively, the entire question of Com- plete Reform in Parliament. Now these are some of the most prominent of the political subjects that are more or less agitated. Wre can only give a glance at those more strictly denomi- nated social. "First Peace and War, now made a matter of conscientious discussion, and involved with Financial Re- form. The Temperance movement, complicated with Sani- tary reform and fibreising into Building Associations and I Dwellings for the Poor, which again flow back into the great swamping question of Pauperism. Capital Punishment, branching off into prison discipline, and touching the great question of Colonisation. Fiscal Reform, penetrating every circumstance of every man's life, and taking up and em- bracing the political agitations of Financial Reform and the Currency question, besides touching with its broad stream all I I L n the great questions, not forgetting Pauperism and Colonisa- tion. Iw Reform, Criminal and Civil, ranging from "Cwwner's quest law to the Chancery seat. Primogeniture, the last stronghold of pi- iviteg-o and aristocracy, and involv- ing the discussion of the nature and right of property. The Law of Divorce, involving tho morals of private life and the sanctities of society besides bchig eomÃJlicatcdwith re- ligions feelings and sectarian notions. The application of Public Trusts and Charities, involving private privileges, and interlaced with the questions of Church Revenue and Pauperism; with a strong connection with the Education question. Municipal Reform, inextricably intermingled with the question of Central or Separate government ?" bordering on the Sanitary, Highroad, and Railway move- ments, and with ligaments connecting it with the Water and'other Monopolies. State Church and Voluntary Church, advocated and opposed by every shade of politicians, and daily growing to a crisis. The Slave Trade, closely involved with the questions of War and Colonisation. The question of Employer and Employed, embracing the Problems of j Wages and Early Closing, and running into Education, and the Sanitary, Monetary, and Truck systems, together with Infant and Female labour: ending in an horizon so wide that many arc afraid to gaze on it. in Jerrold's V,
