THE MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 12, 1883 On the political stage the Servicecum Berry Adidministration have appeared, vice the O'Loghlon Ministry retired. Thoe hbeast friends of the late Govern meant can hardly claim for it that the retirement was very dignified. With his usual moderation and good sense, Mr. M Lean recommended a voluntary withdrawal under the circumstances, with an understanding that the services of the Misiisitry in the past were recog nised, and that there was no desire in any quarter to make charges against them. Strange to say, this excellent suggestioni was disregarded by Mesrs. Graves and Bent, who still seemed to think it possible to sow dissension amongst the majority, and to maintain thie oxistence of the Ministry on the "divide and conquer" principle.

It is doubtful whether, when it sees the light, any great: importance will be attached to it. The investiga tion was clearly entrusted to the wrong mien. 'What weight can possibly lie asigned to the opinion of aLongmore, whose intemperate views and loirve of scandal have ecome notorious ? That the condition of the police force re quired investigation is ablundantly evident. The affair of the Kelly gang called attention to.the decadence of the force, and it came upon many with something of a shock to know that dur comparative immunity from crime was due rather to the eminently law abiding character of the population than toethe efficieny ofo the protective force.

Still it is tlioughit'.that the coalition will live, and, if the Spirit of Strife and desire for. place can only be subdued, perhaps this marvellous com biiiation of radical.s end conservatives. may do the country more service than many of their predecessors.
