The operation of the Factory Act is strongly resisted at Exeter. In four cases penalties of £2 and upwards have been imposed. One f the defendants produced the indenture of the lad whom he had kept employed beyond the specified hour on Saturday-two o'clock. This he did to show that the indenture stipulated for a certain number of hours' work, which had not been exceeded. The magistrates, however, paid no attention to the indenture, remarking that it had been superseded by the Factory Act. Jhe defendant had only one apprentice in his employ, and he contended it was to the lad's benefit to be employed in the evenings. A complaint against the right of the inspector to remain what time lie likes in the factories has been sent to the Home Secretary. The Home Secretary was elected on Monday with- out opposition for Renfrewshire. The right lion, gentleman, in returning thanks, after replying to the objection that he was not a pure Scotchman, dealt with several questions of imperial importance. lie particularly referred to the Irish Church controversy, and to education, and expressed a hope that when the public expected a great deal from the different heads of departments, patience would be exercised. if the present cabinet remained in office a few years, its members would have the satisfaction of knowing that the country was then in a much better condition than when they came into power.â[It is a curious fact, that by the Reform Act of 1868 seven seats were transferred from England to Scotland and that Mr. Bruce is the seventh Englishman who has been elected by the Scottish constituencies to the new Parlia- inent.j
