The speech, is merely a recapitulation of the points of Mr. PARKES' address to the elec tors, and like all the speeches de livered by the honorable gentleman, it reads well, and, as stated, it is to I be hoped7 that in their places in Par liament, the Ministry will "'shirk" none of the'leading questions of the day.
