A d the electors at meeting after meeting in every part of the country that if they would Only return a sufficient number of members pledged to support him he would Settle the question of Reform at once and of Vethe electors Wero deluded by his promises and he was enabled to meet parliament with a following which for every practical Pur pose represented a unanimous House. It seemed As though the constitutional party had been virtually annihilated. � r Dur years with the except Ion of the h if inter Val of four months i. Berry has held the veins of Power and to a greater extent than any other Premier with the exception perhaps of sir Siimes m Tulloch has been Able to control the legislation of the country. But nothing could be More Complete than his repeated failures to stat to the question of constitutional Reform. To failed ignominiously when he had an overwhelming and Servile majority at his Back and he failed not less ignominiously when his majority though of diminished Hiir Merical strength ought to have been sufficient for the purpose if the purpose had been one which he was at All capable of i accomplish ing. That he is deeply conscious of his failures is not to be doubted. That he would willingly to avoid another inevitable failure is Manifest from the Strong disinclination he has latterly exhibited to meddle further with a subject fraught with so Many unpleasant memories to him As a politician. And yet now that hi3 chances of Success Are Slighter than Ever they were lie is to be forced to make the pre tence of again attempting to Settle a ques Tion Vilich he knows will never be settled of the basis proposed by Lipini thus it is that bitter political feeling is kept alive and that with each recurrence of a season which ought to by tag with it nothing but peace arid find nothing but Goodwill there is distrust and jealousy Between class and class a sense of wrong amongst Liose who Are easily persuade cd that rights and privileges Are unjustly withheld from them a sense of Fefer amongst those whose rights and privileges have already been unjustly assailed and Are again threatened. Tints it is that the blessed message peace on Earth to men of Good Svi of is growing to have less less of meaning for us. That p each is departing from us and taking with her Prosperity and. Progress and that Goodwill is dying out amongst All but those who indifferent to the perpetual strife or weary of it Are Content to ignore their duties As citizens and to. Take no heed of politics.
