MR. CROSS ON THE POLICY OF THE GOVERNMENT. Mr. Cross was present at a Conservative gathering at Leigh on Saturday, and made two speeches in de- fence of the general policy of the Government, and in answer to the criticisms which had lately been passed upon it. Passing from the causes of the depression in trade and the distress amongst the agricultural interest to the position of affairs of Afghanistan, he said that so far as that country was concerned the Cabinet could make no change. They had no wish to interfere with the internal affairs of Afghanistan, but what they wanted was to secure India, and to take such precautions that, whatever happened, the English Government must rule and dominate so far aa the safety of India is concerned. If the Administration could see Afghanistan strong and friendly and independent, that was all they wanted but it must be all these three that they must have present. It would not simply do to have one of them and not the other--to have Afghanistan strong and not friendly, or strong and not independent, The result of the Zulu War would be bailed with the greatest pleasure by those who have escaped from the tyranny to which they had been subjected, and the iron rule which was held over them during the reign of the Zulu King.
