There is one characteristic of the present Gov. ernment which has not been fully appreciated, and that is its quiet and patient determination. This feature has been manifest in its policy in regard to Ireland. Through evil report and good report it has persevered with its land legislation. It has also declined to apply force to any extent until it bad found a remedy for existing evils. It has waited until the last moment to see whether the Land Leaguers would return to reason and sense and morality. Its hopes have not been realised, and hence it has assumed the responsibility of striking blow after blow in favour of authority and C5 order. Beginning with the seizure of Mr PARNELL, M.P., it has proceeded to lock up Mr SEXTON, M.P., Mr O'KELLY, M.P., Mr DILLON, M.P., and several smaller men. The patience which the Govern- ment has exercised has been followed by one great advantage, viz., that its action is now fortified by public opinion through the world. Liberals, of course regret exceedingly the neces. sity for such exceptional action. At the same time they are constrained to bear testimony to the fact that the utmost limits of forbearance have been reached. America and Germany combine to approve of the conduct of the Government. We have full confidence that the Government will conbine determination with moderation in the use of its exceptional power. We therefore hope its object will be attained without blood. shed. We trust also that the loyal people of Ireland, who after all are the vast majority, will take the opportunity to sustain the nation. al executive, and so help to deliver themselves from an organised tyranny which has sought to supplant constitutional government, and which has done so much damage to the interests of the country.
