On Wednesday, March l8, Mr. Cobden addressed six thousand persons iu the Free Trade Hall, Manchester, when he spoke of Lord Palmerston as follows : When I want to know what a man is, I ask, " what has he done ?" (Cheers.) There ia no other test like that. That wai Napole- on's question always if anybody talked to him about somebody being a great man What has he done ? Lord Palmerston has been fifty years in Parliament ("fifty-two") -fifty-two years in Parliament. Well, he has belonged, I belieVe, to every Government, excepting one, duiing those fifty 3-ears.

THE MERCURY MONDAY MORNING, JULY 6th, 1857. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 6 July 1857

THE MERCURY MONDAY MORNING, JULY 6th. 1857. Some of our Contemporaries, who wore ex- ceedingly clamorous for retrenchment during the late Ministerial interregnum-for we can call it nothing ehe-have been the first to cry out at tho initiatory and experimental incision of the official lancet. The lopping off of one or two Magisterial limbs-barren and fruitless though they were-ha« created as much sen- sation as though the Constitutional tree had been pulled up by the roots. They entertained no objection to reduction as long as it was their province to reduce ; but now that that power has Leon transferred to other hands, they decry reduction as a griefoUB evil. They cannot understand the wisdom or justice of applying their own principle to themselves. But what have we to complain or rejoice at ? Wo imagino that, to accomplish the full measure of retrenchment demanded by tht people, it will b» necessary for the Execu- tive to uso the pruning knife with far more effect than it has hither...
