TORY stump orators are prone to have a fling at any prominent Liberal who may have a connection with trade. Thus, for instance, Mr CHAMBERLAIN has been charged with ruin- ing the screw manufacture at Birmingham, and now this has been shown to be false, another great Liberal who has made himself particularl y obnoxious to the Tories is violently assailed. Mr JAMES SOMERVILLE, a tory candidate for Glasgow, in addressing the Bothwell Con- servative Association, alluded to the connection of Mr Bright with the Corn Law agitation, and said Mr BRIGHT was enabled to put a considerable quantity of size into his goods, but he did not reduce their price for all that, and those goods were sent to India and Africa, among the coloured races there, but who were unjustly talked about as belonging to the" Great Unwashed." They, however, objected to size, and washed their clothing until it al- most altogether disappeared. So much, added Mr SOMEKVILLE for Mr BRIGHT'S philan- thropy. He has done his best to ruin the British farmer, and he has also done his best to wheedle the very niggers who practised habits of cleanliness. Mr BRIGHT replied to the gentleman who had called his atten- tion to this speech, and severely castigated Mr SOMERVILLE, remarking that to indulge in such language was a proof of the low opinion he must have had of those who listened to him. Thereupon the irrepressible Tory candidate for Glasgow wrote to Mr BRIGHT complaining of this reply. He little knew Mr BRIGHT. The right hon. gentle- man is not easily cajoled into making apologies. In a final reply to Mr SOMER- VILLE he hits that indiscreet gentleman very hard indeed, and unless his object all through has been to bring himself before the public, and thus gain notoriety, which is quite probable, Mr SOMERVILLE will let Mr BRIGHT alone for the future.
