A CONSERVATIVE FINANCIAL REFORMER. A CONSISTENT Conservative is a sight good for the eyes— a sight as refreshing as it is rare. Fortunately we have such a one in the House of Commons that man is Colonel SIBTIIORP, At an early age of his existence-as BUCKSTONE says in the farce-the gallant Colonel had the good fortune to be born the son of his father, from whom he inherited the family spoons and the family borough. The free and in- dependent electors of Lincoln sell him their votes as they supply the Colonel with the other articles he needs. He does not pay them but in custom. The Colonel has his steaks from JONES, and JONES accordingly gives the Colonel a plumper at the poll. His tailor, his wine merchant, and the rest of his tradesmen do the same. So the Colonel defies all radical rivals, and smiles at the storms by which, in more peopled towns, candidates of the same opinion as himself are laid low. The consequence is, that the country is favoured with a gratuitous exhibition of buffoonery such as can be found in no other respectable assembly in the world. The House has been recently favoured by the Colonel with one of his accustomed escapades. On Friday last the House went into a committee of supply. The first proposal was that XI,650 be voted for the repairs and fitting up of Holyrood Palace as a palace of reception for her Majesty. Colonel SIBTIIORP said this appeared to him a most extravagant vote and a regular job, and he should propose that it be reduced by £ 800.—The amendment being put, Lord JOHN RUSSELL, of course, de- fended the grant.—Colonel SIBTIIORP begged to ask whether her Majesty had made the slightest request on the subject or had any knowledge of this expenditure.—Lord J. RUSSELL would state what had occurred. He had informed her tMajesty, on the report of the Duke of HAMILTON, the keeper of Holyrood, that the apartmonts: formerly occupied by the Countess of STRATHMORE were vacant, and he asked her Majesty, at the suggestion of the Duke of HAMILTON, whether she would wish to occupy those apartments on her way to Balmoral. Her Majesty expressed a wish to occupy hem, and it was his business to state that some small sum would be necessary for repairs in order to keep the rooms weather tight--Colonel SIBTIIORP would not add another word of objection to the vote The Colonel was right—the vote was a regular job. As Mr. HUME said, sixteen hundred pounds appeared but a small sum; but the QUEEN could not occupy the apartments without fourtimes that expense being incurred. When the House already votes the QUEEN £ 192,000 for household expenses, X131,000 for salaries for household servants, besides X14,000 for royal bounties, one would think Royalty might ride to Balmoral and back without patting the country to any additional expense. The whole affair was a job so it seemed even in the eyes of Col. SIBTHORP. But, job as it was, the Colonel suddenly resolved to vote for it. Never did Jim Crow wheel about and turn about" more cleverly To the Colonel a royal wish is law. The vote was a job-nefarious, extravagant, unnecessary, and unjust, as all jobs are; but the Colonel gave it his hearty support because it was in accordance with the royal will. For a carpet knight, for a dangler in Belgravia, for a fop or a fool, this principle of the Colonel's may serve very well. In the little world of frivolity and fashion that finds its home in aristocratic coteries and luxurious courts, the sovereigns wish may have the authority of law. When the English Bluebeard beheaded his Queens at his royal pleasure, such little eccentricities were submitted to without a murmur, because such was known to be the case. When CHARLES the First attempted to seize the five members, and thus threw down the gauntlet to the English people which led to the contest in which he lost his kingdom and his life, the SLBTHORPS of the day at once commended his Majesty's procedure. So it was when the great JAMES sent the Bishops to the tower-so it was when GEORGE the Third by his obstinate denial of Roman Catholic rights perilled the exist- ence of the country over which he reigned-so it was when that monster of iniquity, yet, withall that paragon of good breeding, the first gentlemau of the day, as his toadies called him—George the Fourth, sought to persecute with malignant fury, the wife of his bosom and the mother of his child. For all these acts of folly the apology was that it was the royal wish. True, injustice might be done-true, a woman's fair fame might be lied away by paid informers and prurient spies-that a whole country might suffer wrong, and the homes of industry and the abodes of domestic bliss might be withered up with the lurid flames of war-but it was the King's wish. Consequences matteu d not-iii Whitehall- in the Palace of St. James-at Windsor-the royal wish was the rule by which right and wrong were judged-the ultimate standard of appeal. Louis XIV. taught the same morality to the French. I am the State," was his boast. In the whirlwind that swept along the vineyards of France, in the bloodshed and terror of the first revolutioll we learn the inevitable results of such conduct. The SIBTHORI' policy cannot last long-it must be in time an intolerable curse— it must, sooner or later, create an antagonism before which it must give way. Our world abounds with compensations— nature truth man GOD will, sooner or later, have their revenge. Right mournful is it to find a constituency going to such a man as the member for Lincoln, and committing their political well-being to him, making a man thus glaringly ignorant of the principles by which constitutions exist their representative and giving him power, ultimately, to injure them. Governments exist by the people's consent and for the people's good-to view them merely as expressive of a monarch's will—merely as machinery for the gratifica- tion of regal lusts or the removal of regal pains, is to view them altogether from a wrong point; it is putting the cart before the horse. Vox populi vox Dei is, at any rate, politically true. Sovereignty is not a necessity of consti- tutional government. The legislator, who acts on the sup- position that it is will find that he has egregiously erred. There are seasons when such errors would be dangerous indeed. Fortunately, such is not the case at prescnt-SIB- TIIORP speaks and the House laughs-it is a relief for a few minutes-no one is annoyed—and occasionally a county Conservative print goes so far as to quote the Colonel as an oracle Happily the Colonel's offences are not then very serious after all. Had he the genius of a WENTWORTII he might be a formidable foe as it is he is but a type of his class and proves the incompatibility of a thorough Tory, with reform of any kind-indeed the incompatibility of old Toryism with this nineteenth century at all. In so far a a he does this his mission is a useful one. But we have treated the Colonel far too gravely. The Talmud tells us-we cannot vouch for the truth of the story, and we hope our fair friends will forgive us for quoting it, as it is not particularly to their credit-but the Talmud tells us that when GOD took the rib to form woman with from ADAM'S side, he happened to lie it down, when it was seized by a monkey, who ran off with it. An angel was dispatched to secure the rib-either this angel was very indolent or very indifferent about the affair; at any rate he could not overtake the monkey, and, in revenge, cut off a bit of the tail, which he managed to secure, and from which woman was made. The exploits and speeches of a SIBTHORP would make us incline to the belief that there is more truth in the Talmud tale than at first sight might appear.
The House met at twelve in the new chamber. The Encumbered Estates (Ireland) Bill was rejected. Some minor business was disposed of and the House adjourned shortly before six. PRINCIPALITY AND GENERAL PRINTING
MARRIAGE MADE EASY. THE English are a nation of shopkeepers, was the taunt of NAPOLEON; and perhaps in one short line never was national character better hit off. This spirit pervades all society-perhaps, on the whole, it is a useful spirit—it has made us very economical—very industrious-the only good paymasters in the world-yet it has its disadvantages. There are times when the shop should be dropped. For a man to advertise for a wife as he would for a cook is going rather too far; yet this is a custom daily, less honoured in the breach. The Sunday Times of this week has three advertisements which, if there be pity in the female bosom, surely cannot appeal in vain. The first, V. G." a merchant, about the middle age, with a good income, and of sober habits, and of a lively and good temper, and a very attractable appearance, wishes to meet with a lady about his own circumstances, of lady-like appearance, well accom- plished, about the middle stature a carriage will be kept to drive to London daily." Think of that Master BROOKS. The lady's property to be secured to herself, and an ad- ditional income on her settlement." Surely such generosity is overwhelming. The next candidate for hymen's altar is Professor I." who has some property," and i& a young gentleman." He wishes the acquaintance of a lady, who after courtship "—Professor I. could hardly expect the lady to do it before-would be disposed to enter the married state. She must have a good disposition."—Professor 1. need not have laid such stress on that. Women, like men, are very good-tempered enough when they have their own way—" be aecustomed to good society, liberal education," and-how like the postscript of a lady's letter, does this real gist of the advertisement come in-" must have some property at her own disposal." The third candidate is VERITAS, he is a rare catch for an unprotected female. He is in the prime of life, without ineumbrances;" like the heir of the old song, he simply Wanted a wife to make him uneasy;" he is above the middle stature, possessing every desideratum.' VERITAS is cheap at any price—" essential to the security of unanimity and happiness in the married life." To make the bait still more attractive, VERITAS goes on to describe him- self as of active habits, placid disposition, portly and gentlemanly in appearance, and prepossessing in manners." To any lady in the possession of a property approximating to that of the advertiser, VERITAS thinks that his adver- tisement opens a chance which she may never have again; but, like the rest of his class, VERITAS, in the low Worldly sense of the term, does not mean to throw himself away —his portly stature-his gentlemanly appearance, are only to be had tor cash. There is no accounting for tastes. In Australia the enamoured youth gets a wife by knocking her down. Among some tribes the lady is set on horseback and her suitor pursues her-she being the prize, consequently, of the expertest and swiftest horseman. The Moravians draw lots, and, on the whole, seem to lead very calm and placid lives. How Quakers make love, it puzzles us to imagine. Hitherto we have made love like lovers. Our grandfathers felt the passion in all its power. They felt As if the thing beloved were all a saint, And every place she entered were a shrine." This fine feeling is dying away-now love is no match for gold-the strongest of all passions quails before the Mam- mon worship of the age. A five-shilling advertisement, stating the lowest sum that will be taken is all that is re- quisite, and you are a happy man for life.
TOWN LETTER-No. 62. THE Lambeth election has afforded the usual amount of excitement, and is a sign of the times we beg the Whigs to remember. Old Charley, or old Rough and Ready as he is popularly called, has a manner which wins at first, and hence the show of hands was declared to be in his favour but such hopes as Monday's success gave him were speedily dissipated by the events of Tuesday. The official declaration of the poll was as follows :-Williams, 3,834 votes Napier, 1,182; Palmer, 585. Hence, by an immense majority, Mr. Williams is returned to labour side by side with the veteran reformer Hume. We are glad of this, and grieved should we have been had the result been otherwise. Of the three candidates Mr. Williams was by far the best. Mr. Palmer has yet to win his laurels, and was, therefore, evidently not the man for an important constituency; and the old Admiral, though he can write a sharp letter when he feels himself agrieved, is, after all, a Whig and nothing more. More than this was required by the Lambeth electors. They needed a man of tried political character—of enlightened views-of inflexible honesty-a consistent opposer of all abuse. This they found in Mr. Williams. His return is a hint to Government. Lord John must keep on moving. Our great constituencies will have no "finality." The Protectionists crow about reaction. The Lambeth election is far, however, from bearing out their boast, No Pro- tectionist dared to enter the field, though the split amongst the liberals might have given him a chance. If there be political apathy-if there be reaction—if there be a dislike to the Liberalism of the age, it is not in our great and in- dependent constituencies they are to be found. In Lambeth Protectionism hides its diminished head. In the country— after dinner at an agricultural ordinary-it swaggers a re- gular Bombastes Furioso. Unlike that interesting creature the well-known wounded snake of Pope, Parliament does not drag its slow length along, but gets through its business at a most imposing rate. The only exception to this is the case of Baron Rothschild, which the House has made up its mind to consider seriously next session. We have already had too much serious con- sideration. As regards the House of Commons, the subject has been considered and decided. What is wanted is what Demosthenes is said to have recommended so strongly to aspiring orators. The time has come for action, and for action the men of London, at any rate, are prepared; but Parliament is too busy voting thousands away for palaces and royal people to think of the Jews. A Parliamentary paper of some importance has appeared, being the report of the committee appointed last April to investigate the general subject of official salaries and emoluments as en- joyed by persons having seats in Parliament; also into the salaries of judges in the courts of law and equity and into the general question of onr diplomatic expenditure. The bona fide nature of this inquiry may be gathered from the names of its members. Mr. Wilson Patten acted as chair- man, the committee further consisting of Lord John Russell, Mr. Bright, Sir W. Molesworth, Mr. Home Drummond, Mr. Beckett, Mr. Cobden, Mr. Napier, Mr. W. Evans, Sir John Trollope, Mr. Ellice, Mr. Deedes, Mr. Walter, Mr. J. L Ricardo, and Mr. Henry Drummond. This report recom- mends savings to the amount of X, 70,000 a-year. The re- commendation is not a bad one. How it will be received in the House we, however, cannot tell. Judging from LordJohn's recent acts, we imagine that he cares little for reducing the expenditure, and that what he saves in one direction he will squander in another. The reductions recommended by the committee are not very alarming after all. The law officers will still have a tolerable living ambassadors will not be very hard up; there will still be cakes and ale. At this season of the year the annual Wesleyan Conference is being held. The Nonconformist says:—" During the past week, the officers were able to boast of flourishing finances, and from the unanimity of feeling displayed bv the assembled preachers, it might be imagined that the utmost harmony prevailed throughout the Connexion. So far as the reform' question was concerned, matters were carried with a high hand. Even those members of the Conference who are most favourable to the out-door move- ment, scarcely ventured to hint at anything distasteful to the majority, or rather the assembly itself. The com- mittee appointed by the delegates-meeting, which assembled in London in March last, requested an interview with Con- ference, to present some numerously-signed memorials from members of the body, and to discuss a plan for revising the whole of the Methodistic laws.' In reply, the Presi- dent, in the name of the Conference, refuses to recognise any such body, the existence and action' of which are a' deliberate and flagrant violation of the discipline of Metho- dism,' and announces that the laws of 1835 will be adhered to and enforced. The spirit of the Conference has been further shown in the manner in which Mr. Bromley's case has been dealt with. The claim of that gentleman to appeal against the decision by which he was suspended, was summarily dismissed by an almost unanimous vote. Our indefatigable contemporary, the Wesleyan Times, ascribes the unyielding obstinacy of Conference to the expectation that there will shortly be a secession of the malcontents, and that then peace and tranquility will be restored to our distracted and convulsed Connexion.' This belief it states is a delusion— Among the bulk of Reformers, there is but one determina- tion and that is, come what may, to stick to the ship.' To ourselves, who are merely spectators of this conflict, the couduct of Conference would appear to savour of infatuation, were it not that the monetary resources, which they can use, but cannot create, are still forthcoming. Can it be that the bulk of the Wesleyan laity are contented with the regime of ecclesiastical despotism ? If so, and really ap- pearances at present seem almost to warrant the conclusion, the reformers can do nothing else but secede. But it must be borne in mind, that such agitations as the Wesleyan Reform movement do not attain their object at once. Al- though slow, their progress is sure. They never go back. The supercilious, and to our minds ridiculous, bearing of the preachers has made it stronger than ever. From this time, it seems to us, the reform movement will begin to tell with effect upon the body. The enterprise is a noble one, and its leaders are worthy of it. Such perseverance, energy, and (if we may so express ourselves) adhesiveness, as they have exhibited can scarcely fair of success. The Conference divan may be more than human but were we in their place we should regard a conflict with such opponents as certain of ending in our ultimate defeat. The latest news are not of much importance. Mr. New- man has been made a Dr. of Divinity by the Pope. Verily he hath his reward." Mr. Gorham was unexpectedly insti- tuted to the vicarage of Brampford Speke, by Sir H. J. Fust, at the Prerogative Court, on Tuesday; so we may sup- pose the great Gorham case has come to an end. In the northern capital, the British Association, under the Pre- sidency of Sir David Brewster, is holding its annual meetings; and in the Irish capital the Repeal Association is again trying to make an attempt at life. It was resusci- tated on Monday, when the attendance was meagre and the rent" but small. Nor is this to be wondered at—the soul of it has died out-since the member for all Ireland blustered and bullied the land has been sore-stricken with famine and death in its bitterest form—the men and women of the monster meetings, where are they? after life's fitful fever sleeping till the resurrection morn or else in other t climes seeking the livelihood they were unable to obtain at home. WIDE AWAKE.
CARDIFF. THE Children of the Landaff Schools had a dinner given them on Tuesday last, by Mrs. Gecrge Thomas, of Landaff-court. We understand that was intended by the hospitable donor as a farewell treat, in consequence of the departure of her family from Landaff-court, which will be speedily occupied by the Bishop of the Diocese.

Owing to a little dissension among the members, the usual formalities were not gone through j for not having provided themselves with a band, they did not do as it was otherwise intended, namely, go to church. Some few of the stewards proceeded to St. Matthew's Church, where they found the Rev. Mr. Morgan, awaiting their arrival. Upon in- forming that' gentleman of the cause of the alteration, he very property remarked, I do not know how you can, with consis- tency to yourselves and honesty to the public, make an appeal on behalf of the Widows' and Orphans' Fund, it you immediately afterwards go and throw away four or five pounds in the foolish and unnecessary appendage of a band, at the anniversary." About two o'clock, the various members dined at their lodges. At the Viscount Lodge, which is held at the Black Lion, about eighty persons sat down to a sumptuous dinner provided for them by ths landlord, Mr. Twigg. After dinner, the chair and I vice-chair was oebupied by Messrs J.. Jenkins and P. Smith# vice-chair was ocbupied by Messrs J. Jenkins and P. Smith, and the usual loyal toasts, and those in keeping with the occasion. were given. At Castell Caerdydd Lodge, held at the Red Cow, I Messrs. William Lewis and Daniel Matthews, did the honours of the table. The lodge entitled, Cambrian's Pride,' assembled at | the Hastings Hotel, at which place Dr. Payne presided, Mr. J- j Gower tilling the vice-chair. The Royal Windsor Lodge was held at the Bunch :of Grapes, Messrs. H. B. Lawrence and II. Rich, being chairman and vice. At the New Inn assembled the Temple of Friendship lodge, Mr. William Thomas, chairman, and Mr. Thomas Jacob, vice-chairman. All the requisites which constitute a good dinner, were provided at each ol these places, and all appeared highly to enjoy the proceedings of the day. It was stated at some of the lodges that the admirable portion of the Society, designated the Widows' and Orphans' Fund, had been benefitted to the amount of upwards of 150, by the late monster Tea Meeting, held in the Market-house. Such an addition will enable the 'brothers' to extend, still farther, the hand of charity, and, doubtless, many will receive large benefits* owing to the liberal support which has lately been given to their Society.
