THE PRIME MINISTER AND LORD RUSSELL. The following letter has been addressed by Mr. Disraeli to each of the London papers :— Sir,—Lord Russell observed last night in the House of Lords that I boasted at Edinburgh that while during seven years I opposed a reduction of the borough franchise, I had been all that time educating my party with the view of bringing about a much greater reduction of the franchise than that which my opponents had proposed. As a general rule, I never notice misrepresentation of what I may have said but as this charge against me was made in an august assembly and by a late first minister of the Crown, I will not refrain from observing that the charge has no foundation. Nothing of the kind was said by me at Edinburgh. I said there that the Tory party, after the failure of their bill of 1S59, had been educated for seven years on the subject of parliamentary reform, and during that interval had arrived at five conclusions, which, with their authority, I had at various times announced, viz. ;-1. That the measure should be complete. 2. That the representation of no place should be entirely abrogated. 8. That there must be a real boundary commission. 4. That the county representation should be considerably increased. 5. That the borough franchise should be established on the principle of rating; and that these five points were accomplished in the act of 1867. This is what I said at Edinburgh, and it is true..—I am, sir, your obedient servant, B. DlSR^BU. Downing-street, March 6th.
