SIR S. NORTHCOTE ON THE ASHANTEE WAR. Sir Stafford Northcote, presiding on Monday at an agricultural meeting near Torrington, speaking of the Ashantee expedition, said that, whatever ser- vice British troops were called upon to render in the pestilential West Coast of Africa, they would render it cheerfully, but he extremely regretted that it should have been found neoessary to expose their soldiers to such service as they were now engaged in. It might be that the expedition was entirely necessary, and could not have been avoided, but it would have been more in accordance with precedent if the Government, on finding themselves committed to an expedition of the magnitude which this promised to be, had called Parliament together and proposed a vote of credit fer the purpose of supplying the expedition. Of course a British Parliament would never refuse the funds for earrying on an expedition which'the Crown had thought It necessary to engage In but still it would havejieen only a reasonable proceeding on the part of the Go- vernment that they should have shewn confi- dence oa this occasion, and should have taken that House into their counsels from the very ear- liest period of such an undertaking.
