J- When I say this, I do not mean to interfere with the opinions of any one ; every person has a right to judge for himself, and draw bis own conclusions upon this, as upon all other subjects.- 1 know that iriany men of great ability and vigorous understanding, entertain opinions different from mine, but I do not therefore blame them ; I extend the same charity to them which I claim to myself. But, Sir, it does seem to mie that in discussing the question of Hariiamentary Reform too mut;h violence, too much dogmatism have been made one of. All advocates for praciicnl reform should defer to eaah other ; no man shotild lay down ioHexible rules, and coiitend that bis plau "alone is right and all others wrong. Every man is bounds to pay a due deference to the opinions of others, and not presume upon hi*- own infallibility, and say I have made op my mmd to this point, and to this point I will go, and will neither go further nor stop short of it. I say this partly wiih reference to certain doctrines which have lately been so much promulgated; and I Iiave been more pariiculurly ind^iced to do so, on aceoiiiit of �a hand-bill, which has thi4 day been distributed through the town. The three great points of this particular species of reform bre. Annual Parlia-meots. Universal SuflTiage, and Eltiction by I shall, .Sir, briefly examine these points, and state the objectidiu I have to esich of tl^in.- It has been asserted that annutil Parliaments are essential to ReformI I quarrel isith no man fo' tnaiutaiiiing the opinion that annual Parliuinetits would be the best, but I canitof consent to bis assuming that it is essential as a priiiciple. It Certainty is desirable that delegates should tiot be iifi-pointed for to lorig a period. But. what makes one J ear preferable to any other time Is itine any magic in one year? Aiid why not a month .> The satHe iirgumeuts would equiilfy apply to that period.' Indeed, by the same mode of reasoning, it may be argued that the power shuiild not be delegated at all. If it be unsafe to delegate it for a greater peiiod than one year, is it not unsafe to delegate rt at all ? I am not condemning those who entertain this opinion, but 1 am ' contending against their assuming icasa fixed principle. There is nothing more like a principl�.iii a yeiir than a month.; it i� a question of practice, not of theory. I consider seven years to be too long a period^ and one too short. I believe it isfound inJtiost Of the concerns of life, that one year is too sllort a time to learn almost any business; even in matters of parish ac-, counts, one year is found too short for the pur(>��e.

As has been said by one of the greatest men that ever lived, " Time is tbe great ii>-novBlor," Fpr 50 years we have oeen told the same. In 1770, when the great Lord Chatham brought ii forward, the same language was held out, the same arguments were l>rought forwatd against it, it was then said that it was not the proper time, that tbr Reformers were, hasty-that the measure wa� hazardous and fraught with danger. It ha* been con* slantly kept bej'ore the public ever since ;. for 50 years we have advocatedthp cause without auccess ; the proper tinae hs^ never yet arritred; and this of itself is surely a sufficient tvideoce that we have not been very hasty in oar. proceediags..^i^/4p p/au�.>-All the greatest meu this coiialry ba> produced-men eminent for literary attaiiinien^ eloquence, patriotisiq, and political knowledge, liave held Reform to be jiiecessary. li it rash'to follow the steps of the immortal Chatham?
