MR, BAXTER AND HIS CONSTITUENTS. The member for the Montrose Boroughs addressed a meeting of his constituents in the Town Hall, Most- rose, last week. The hon.. member dwelt at con- siderable length on his favourite topics of Peace, Re- trenchment, and Reform; whil&t Church endowments, the war in America, the Danish question, and forr L1 affairs generally, were not forgotten. He contended that the working man desired the franchise as much as ever he did; and rebutted the assertion of Lord Palmerston that there was in this country a growing aversion to political change, warning statesmen to be- ware of taking their stand on finality or of deluding themselves into the idea that the artisans of England care nothing about votes. In closing a long address the hon. member said:— I rejoiced in the July victory of Government, because it tended towards peace and non-interference, and also because it showed that the Ultramontane Roman Catholics, who were ordered to vote against a Ministry which sympathised with free Italy, were not to be permitted to dictate to the people and Parliament of England: It is the second' defeat which the combined Tories and Romanists have received of late-the first being when they voted against Mr. Glad- stone's Paper Duty Bill, on the suspension of the Galway contract, and perhaps it may break up the alliance. At all events it tends to delay the accession of the Conservatives to power; and if we are to have the Liberals in office for some time longer, let them do some liberal things. The pre. sent Ministry cannot go on in a new Parliament trading on the measures of the Chancellor of the Exchequer—without a programme, without a declared policy. There are men in Lord Palmerston's Cabinet who have been great public benefactors ia the past. My hope and confidence is that they will again be prepared to unfurl the old banner, and temperately, gradually,. but firmly insist on measures of progress and reform.
