THE ITALIAN PARLIAMENT. — King Humber opened the Italian Parliament, and delivered a long speech, in which he sketched out the programme of legislation that he desired to effect. First in im- portance he placed the question of electoral reform, which had been counselled by his father. He promised a transformation of the system of taxation which would alleviate the burdens on the poorer classes, and a bill to settle the question of ecclesiastical property. Towards the conclusion hia Majesty referred to the Eastern Quts tion, and announced that be had consepted to take part in a meeting of tio Powers, being desirous of assuring to Europe a datable peace. The recent change at the Vatican, he added, showed that respect for religious belief could be reconciled with a de- termined defence of the laws of the State.
