MR W. H. GLADSTONE ON THE POLITICAL PROSPECT. Mr W. H. GLADSTONE, M.P., presiding at the rent audit dinner, at Hawarden, on Wednesday, responded to the toast of Mr Gladstone's health, and said in the present state of public affairs, and viewing the necessity of sparing the Premier's strength to the utmost, they would readily understand that his absence was impera- tive. Whilst enjoying in so extraordi- nary a measure the confidence and esteem of the people of the country at large, he could assure them, Mr Gladstone still knew how to value the testimony of the goodwill and friendly feeling of his neighbours. Others knew him as a public man, and by his public action; those present had the advantage of seeing him fre- quently, and being conversant with the manner of his daily life, thereby feeling a personal in- terest in all that concerned him. He was glad to assure them that there seemed no ground for believing that his father's health was impaired, or even seriously interrupted. He hoped no special measures would be found necessary, though of course it was impossible to predict. After so Ion? a service to his Queen and country as fifty years they could not look forward to much prolongation of an active political life. All would admit his title to repose after so long a period of arduous and devoted labour, not but what it was certain that his father would be in harness of some kind so long as he lived, though it might be of a less arduous, but perhaps of a moreJonKevial character than th .t of the political arena. 0
