It vvilF be seen by our Parliamentary Report that the Municipal Ueform Bill, as deal: with by the Lords, has been accepted by the Com- mons, and it is now the Law of the land- A ii(i although the Radicals Ilave accepted it only as an instalment, we are disposed to think that it will prove to be a final measure, so far as concession is concerned. We are not disposed to inJ ulg-e in any laudatory strain in speaking. of tit(, conduct of the House of Commons in this affair; ,it is evident that the Radicals have been coerced by public opinion, by the firmness of the Peers, and by the ability of Ministers to do without their unholy allies. They themselves, therefore, with a few brnt" ful- mniations against the House of Lords, and were soothed into compliance by an assutance from Lord John Russell tlmt the liill would not be a final one. We agree with many %vell I'" people in the opinion, that the Conservative party, in the House of Commons, acted %erv tiil,isely in not shewing a more active and determined re- .sistance to such parts of the Biii as they objected to, for by this siipineuess they imposed a hea- vier responsibility on the Peers than real elongvd to them, and^brought upon them all Z, -d the pressure from vithout. We think too that Sir Robert Peel, on the discussion of the Lords' amendments, did not exhibit that unity of purpose, which is the strength oftlie Conserva- tive party. We hope the Right Hon. Baronet is not growing too liberal ;âhis concession on n.i; Catholic claims should be a i%aiii it,, to him for the whole of his political life. The fatal year, 1S-9," says the eloquent author of the life of Pitt, is the first in that fearful series of hopeless resistance and accelerated overthrow, the head of that dark and fearful chronology which hall henceforth number the declining nmes of the noblest of all Empins." We do not t ike so gloomy a view of the present posi- tion of our country; but wc ftel the measureless diflicnlties tllat await the leader of our political redemption from the gulf inlo which the unad- vised concession of one, and the desperate rash- ness of succeeding ruler.c, have plunged us Tile M unicip il Corporations Amendment Dili may have strengthened the Jllllds ofdemocracy â thanks to the Peers it is no worse; but upon the sound, the loyal, the genuine Liiglish feeling, which, we are persuaded, greatly predominat s in the middle classes, we confide, and to theni their coun'rv looks for the Constitutional working ofilils Bill.
