low-water mark of the National Assemblies or Provisional Con- ventions of other countries. The hon. member concluded (amidst loud cheers) by maintaining the necessity of a system of well- organised party as essential to our constitutional form of Govern- ment. Lord J. Russell could not discover against what accusations the hon. member defended the House. The Government had certainly not charged the House with being the cause of preventing the progress of public business. The House—that is, forty-nine fiftieths of the members—were the complaining parties and though they were willing to allow the greatest latitude to fair discussion, they had reason in thinking that some speeches of the other fraction might be well spared (hear). Legislatioll was not the sole, nor even the principal duty of the Government; it was a modern idea to think so; and in the days of Walpole, Chatham, and even Pitt, there were few legislative measures introduced and e rried by the Government. The principal function of the Go- vernment, especially when there was sedition in England, inci- pient rebellion in Ireland, and revolution on the continent, was the alininistration of the affairs of the empire and when he could say that sedition had been Iquelled, a rebellion in Ireland put down' the institutions of the country preserved f: m the revolutions of the continent, and the general peace maintained, he thought that lie might boast on the part of the Government, that the adminis- tration of the empire had been successful (cheers). To preserve our institutions and to maintain peace would be the great objects of this administration i and he trusted that whoever might succeed them in office would have to defend, not to restore, the constitu- tional institutions of Great Britain. The noble lord made some excuses for the four budgets and other legislative failures com- mented on by Mr. Disraeli, and congratulated himself on the prospect of getting the royal assent to 105 bills out of 125 bills submitted by Ministers to Parliament. He also paid a compli- ment to the energies, talents, and eloquence of Lord G. Bentinck, Mr. Disraeli, Mr. Herries, and other members who act with them, and advised them to constitute themselves into a compact party, assuring them that, provided they give up the idea of restoring the principle of protective duties, they would obtain great influence with the country (hear, hear). After a few remarks from Mr. Hume, Mr. B. Osborne, and Mr. Hudson, the bill was read a third time and passed. The House at four suspended its sitting to six.
