SNOTES: AN? . VJ'NTS. 1 Mr. J. H; Connor addressed the electors at Ondit last night. ;There were about fifty persons present, and Mr. E. Coulston; was voted to the chair. Mr. Connor's "explana tion of his political conduct" was much the same as that given by himn at Colac and Inverleigh, with the exception, that he touched upon the question of. the drainage of the lakes. The questions which were put to Mr. Connor by various electors were an swered in that gentleman's usual mariner. He declined to answer the question put by' Mr. Woods, as to whether the Berry Govern ment were entitled to a dissolut5"'; prior to the Stonewall being forned. Mr. Charles Buhlanan made himself conspicuous by talk ing a lot of nonsense which had no reference to the point at issue.: Mr. Monan, however, speedily put an end to Mr. Buchanan's dithy rambics, by alluding to certain slander:ous statements made by Mr. Buchanan in his place at the Shire Council with. refer ence to the working men in the district.

THE electors of Warrnambool have feted " the man of the Iron Hand" and one of his brother Ministers, the Hon JOSEPH JONES. These two gen tlemen unbosomed themselves to the people of Warrnambool, but upon glancing over the deliverances of the colonial Knight and the former vendor of " the brown berry of fragrant aroma," we are forced to arrive at the conclusion that Sir CHAREs COLD STREAH was wont to resort to, and exclaim, "There's nothing in it." Sir JAMES M'CULLOCH and Mr. JOSEPH JONES carefully abstained from impart ing any information as to the future proceedings of the Government. They both assailed Mr. BERRY and his fol lowers in no measured terms, and Mr. JONES had the temerity to assert that the liberties of the country were in danger because Mr. BERRY and his party availed themselves of the forms of the Legislative Assembly to prevent the M'CULLOCrH Government from ob taining supplies, and thus continuing in office against the expressed wish of the people. But Mr. JONES sai...

[ADVERTIuSEMENT.] r HE INATIONAL REFORIII SLEAGUE OF VICTORIA. MANIFESTO. It is a fundanmental principle of the English Constitution that rep'esentation should go with taxation. It is an in alienable right of a free people that they should make their own laws. lhe people of this ceentry live under a constitution which, while leaving them comparatively free to elect their own representatives prac tically deprives their representatives of all legislative power. The Legislative Asrembly, which is elected by the whole people, is constantly obstructed by the Legislative Council, which represents only a portion of the community, th.t 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. In every civilized country in the world a land tax is one of the chief sources of revenue for the State.
