The elections, and the festivities of Christ mas and the new year, have occupied so much public attention that but scant notice could be afforded to the news by the English mail. At the present time, however, when the land laws of this colony form the watchwords of some of the parties now struggling for the upper hand in Parliament, a glance at the latest phases of the Irish land question will not be unprofitable. It is one of the grand ques tions of the day, and on its satisfactory solu tion the most important consequences may depend. Independently of the Government aud their policy, there appear to be now in Ireland three parties to this ques tion. One has the support and cuuntenance of the Roman Catholic clergy, and it seeks the establishment of tenant right. Another deprecates any but the slightest interference with the existing system, and maintains the integrity of vested territorial rights, threatening to sell out and abandon the country if those rights are infringed. A third...

II. I hold that this distinction is so innate, vital essential, that the first man and the first woman, were having realised that ' it is not good that man should be alone,' and having blended their efforts and their fortunes for mutual well-being accordingly, at once recognised the intrinsic fitness of each for distinct exertions for the common good; and that the man went forth to collect the bounties of Nature or constrain them into such forms as would be conducive to their subsistance. while the woman took charce «f tlin bower, cabin, or cave, which formed their abiding-place, and proceeded to make the mutual couch of lea...
