One of the ii^blf|;i�tiiying features of the dav was the Varm, and enthusiastic reception given by all classes of the people to, Marshal ^ult, who in the loud acclamations! with which: he was greeted must have seen that the' nation had no part in the inhospitable feeling which' dictated a late unsealsonable attempt to choose th^ period of the visit of this illustrious warrior for an invidious controversy, w ^e are 'sure we only do justice to the jQuke of Wellington, when we say that the loud and > hearty applause which his 6wn> approach drew from* the people could not be more gratifying to him than the honours bestowed on' the distinguished foreigner jvhoni he so often met in the .field as an enemy, rio\y th^ guest of a .country illuslfrj^d by, his , own immortal achievements. ,n Marshal Soult was known W his'equipage. The Duke of Wellington seemed as if he were desirous of withdrawing himself from public gaze, fiom ant unwillingness tp draw towards himself any porti[o|i of that applause which he deemed! 4ue on British soil .t^his, bid opponent. From this circumstance on some parts of the line his grace was hotTecoffnised by the multitude. 'But where he was riscognised- the applause? he received bore unequivocal tesitimony'to the- grateful regard in which this nero of a hundred b^ittles is held. But the crowd seemed particularly ansdobs to obliterate from the mind of "the noble soldier of France*' all recollections of national jealousy and by-gone enmities; ' Within the Abbeys the reception ^ven to the two heroes of France and England was equally warm and cordial. Earl Grey was' also warmly and enthusiasticallyy'greeted, as was Lord Melbourne. : The promptitude and graceful ease displayed by her Majesty when she descended the steps of the throne to assist in raisin|^ the veneriible Lord Bolle, who, labouring under the weight of nesr^y ninety years, fell on ap-)roaching the royal presence, won universal admiration irom all who witnessed; the scene. On her way back to 3uckin^ham Palace, symptoms of fatigue were visible in ler Majesty's cotintetiah<^; .but considering whsit she had gopethrobgh they exbited ho surprise, though much .commiseration.- / She bore her sqeptre like a Queen, and bowed her crowned head with toat mild dignify of deport^ tuent which showed her aware of^the ^xalted station she filled as the mistress of a mighty nation. The scene of. Thursday,' upon the whole, will long be remembered. Happiness and satisfaction were painted on every coun-tei^ance,[andit was ^impossible to view with indifference the appearance of such a multitude of human beings entering with a keen enjoyment into all that was passing around/them. Never, perhaps, has the world seen such an assemblage of beauty and splendour as that which' was on Thursday witnessed within the capital of these kingdoms. -  THE BBFORMBILL-IBISH REPRESENTATIOK. Dublin University Magazine-With respect to the Irish counties, the Reform Bill worked an improvement. The reasons had long since ceased to exist which had formerly made freeholds so much mote respectable than leaseholds in the eyes of the law. At common law, a lea^efor the life of a man of eighty years Vas a higher estate than a lease for 1,000 years:: and the latter estate, if lyorth 1,000/. a year, would not. give the owner,* or any of his tenants, aright to vote., .The BeformAct removed this anomaly; and leasehold interests of sufficient duration, if of the value of 10/;-a'year, now^confer the franchise upon the possessor;' Thisw^ .a dedided improve-, ment, although not so great ftone^as might,at first appear^ It removed rather ah anomaly than a grievance, since the electorffunder^thefbld'system wereiexactly of the same class, and represented the same interests as those undei^ the new. ^ Still, on the v^hole, weconsider it a beneficial extension of the franchise; .bntwe think the changcought tob<;c�i(ried�arther, andthatipossession of a house and land oif a certain value, s^y dO/Tayear, ought to confer a-right to^ote on the possessor without miiinuuiry as .to the^ rentwhijeth hepaid'orthe tenure by which he h^H it.^ This "^dUSS aimplify'the'law, and remove an immensity of fraud and peijuty' \ an** the electors thus' introduded wpnld be folly eqi^ iti wealth.and intelligence to the average of thoM Mfkto: ban .vote under the present system. This, too, w)Mld the same, qualifijcations should confer the franchise: The only reasonable departure from' thisistohiave no'system' at-sdl, but'to^ let'the i^arious^ classes of socipty beTepresented by the, different districts' which ages had proved effectual for the purpose, apd to make the efneaey of the House of "Commons depend aa much upon the wisdoon andintegtityof itsmembersa^upon-their close dependance upon their constituents. If we are to have a systemof direct representation, let it be areason-' able one. '  , DANIEL COMING TO JUDGMENT. Monthly Law Magazine-It is not because it pro-' claims the readiness of gove|nment to confer office on. Mr. p'Connell, and indicates the probabihtf of his ap^ cepting it at no distant period, that the announcement ia^ the ministerial journals is so important. That announce-' ment discloses two facts; one of them, we apprehend^ not hitherto suspected; the other suspected, certahiiyi-yet-not fiilly credited.
