[.\DVERTrsErNsT.j r liE NATIONAL REFORM LEAGUE OF VICTORIA. MANIFESTO. It is a fundamental principle of the • English Constitution that representation should go with taxation. It is an in alienable light of a free people that they should make their own laws. The people of this country live under a constitution which, while leaving them comparatively free to elect their own representatives prac tically deprives their representatives of all legislative powee. The Legislative Assembly, which is elected by the whole people, is constantly obstructed by the Legislative Council. which represents only a portion of the conmninity, thet portion being the propertied class. Legislative action on the part of the people has, there fore, become a nullity, and self-govern ment a sham. Ih every civilized counr.try in the world a land tax is one of the chief sources of revenue for the State In a country like this, where the State out of the general revenue grants large annual subsides in aid of local...

'THE PEARLS AND MJOCa PEARLS OF HIST''ORY. Hayward (translator of " Faust ") in his article on " Pearls and Moek Pearls of History," says ;-We are gravely told on historical authority, by Moore, in a note to one of his Irish melodies, that during the reign of Bryan, King of Munster, a young lady of great beauty, richly dressed, and .adorned with jewels, undertook a journey from one end of the kingdom to the other, with a wand in her hand at the topl of which was a ring of exceeding great value; and such was the perfection of the laws and tihe government that no attempt was made upon her honor, nor was sihe robbed of her clothes and jewels. Precisely the same story is told of Alfred of Frothi, King of Den mark, and of hollo, Duke ofNormanby. Another romantic anecdote, fluctuating between two or more sets of actors, is an episode in the amours of Enmmna, the alleged daughter of Charlemagne, who finding tlhat the snow had fallen rather thickly during a nightly inter view with her lover...
