We think that what passed on Tuesday night ori this point will not be without its utility. Generally half of every statute might be lopped away, and the law would thereby be rendered more clear, simple, and certain.

He also poihted out another clain^ix^;which more than half the words.might be advantag^puwy rejected. The truth is,' that this kultiplication an4.^(jic^lica Pf terms and phrases has risen to a ituonsli^us'evil, the origin of it b^g that the lawyerisij "^q^dra#|bills,^^^^ usually paid accdrding to the number of woircfe they can crowd into them, a feult notoriously eitWidilig to every species of legal instrument. Then, ^iu� the use of this verbiage preates ainbiguity, ambijlftt^ty cx^ litigation, and liti- Sationfees; so that the lawyers jpilay their own game at ie expense of the public.: allowing for the costs of construction, this, to use the language of ourcontempo- , rarytheiSftonoTarcf, is neither morenor less than confiscation. There is, no mistaking the intentions entertained by Mr. Spring Ric^: with respect to railroads. That he al^nr doned the most iniquitous part of his project when he. foUndihat Parliament would not sanction theinju.stice, is no doubt'true; but the opinions delivered by him on Satu;r^.ay, afford sufficient indications of a disposition to take 9n un&ir adv^tage of the railroad companies. Why, fpr instaiice, if PiMrliaiuent subjected them to /the extortionate demands of owners of property, should they not be entitled to'indemnification for their outlays on that Hccoiint? We; would advise the different railroad com-.panies to watch the movements of this adversary, who w^l.lpse noppportunity of pcbfiting hy their mist^es or their supinepess, ? if he can. A statesminn of jcnlarged views would see that it was'of far more importance to encourage individuals to execute beneficial' undertakings like railroads, thaji to shake the confid(;nce in which such undertakings have their origin, by, a miserable attempt to, gain; a few thousand pounds a year, to. the Treasury. Every man of any discernment must.perceive, that by means of railroads land and other property will become valuable, in proportion to their proximity to railroads, and that it is hardly possible to over-estimate the addition which the .national wealth will derive from this source. The instance cited by Mr. Baines of the addition to the wealth of Manchester and Liverpool caused by the railroad justifies the. most sanguine anticipations of benefit from these undertakings. Yet to the jaundiced eye of the Chancellor of the Exchequer the different railroad companies appear in the light pf enemies of their country whom he is bound to discburaige as much as he possibly can. publicity of parliamentary proceedings. Standard-The position in which we find ourselves with reference to this important subject (the Church Discipline Bill) reminds us of, what we cannot help regarding as, in every view, an impoUtic omission on the part of the House of Lords-we mean the non-pubUcation of its papers. The House of Commons gives freely to the public the opportunity of purchasing, at a very cheap rate, all the documents printed for the use of its members -bills, reports, minutes of evidence, &c. The consequence is, that, save when the House proceeds with great precipitation, it has the advantage of the whole mind of the country exercised upon the measures in progress; much valuable .information is thus invited and tendered as to details*, and the pulse of the people is, if we may so speak, felt as to principles. Nor is it the smallest advantage resulting from this publicity, that the ijeople take an interest not only in the proceedings, but in the House conducting them. The House of Lords has nothing to conceal, and it is impossible to guess.why it should be more jealous of its documents than the other House of Parliament To the press generally the restriction is a ^reat inconvenience. Men, at least men whose support is worth anything, will neither ask, nor an obligation, or which is only less degrading, by deding with a lord's butler, that one can ever get hold of any biU PT report of the House of Lords, This js our apology fqr,? t .a ;
