THE BUDGET. TO IHE EDITOR OF THE IUOHNINC CHRONICLE. Sir,—The "Iate" Protectionists ate aghast at. the confessione of their Chancellor of the Exchequer. His financial statement was neither OIOle nor Jess than an unequivocal testimony to the merits of the ifnancial and corrnieictal policy of the tale Sir Robert Peel. lie actually went out of bis way to answer the fallacies promulgated by the leadinp organs of the Government, touching the alleged taliinq-off of the income-lax. But he faintly sanctioned the Piotectioni-t creed in one respecr. He prophesred that rents and farmers' profits would decline for a period. But what of that 1 Did not ihe Whigs go farther? i )id ificy not actually in,ert a recognition of agricultural distress in the Queen's Speech ? And did not Lord Derby distinctly state at Bury that if the pvople at large prospered under free- trade, whilst some partial suffering fell to the lot of the agriculturists, he, for one, should endeavour heartily to rejoice at it. The cheers which hailed the fiist Caucasian I udget came principally from the Opposition benches. And well ihey might. The greater part of ft,' r. Disraeli's statements relating to the improved condition of the finances were borrowed, without acknowledgment, from Mr. G. C. Lewis's pamphlet. Your very obedient servant, April a0. ANII-HUMBUO.
