Mr. Thornton called attention to the several adjournments of the Revision Court at Warwiok, alleging that great inconvenience have thereby been caused to applicants for registration.

The country erie« out for progressive legislation, and thc time is opportune for again beginning reproductive public works on .a prudent scale. But the personal and petty quarrels of the thirty-two gentlemen who form tbe popular representative chamber of the colony have for the second time produced a deadlock in legislation ; and in this second instance, unfortunately, a deadlock in public works also.
