Cjre llikrim fjcrali MOHUOA, SATURDAY, FEB. 27, 18G9. " What do you think of the Chief Secretary's speech on the Budget?" " Wasn't it a decided success?" ''Wasn't it grand?" " Wasn't it glorious ?" " Wasn't it superb ?" " Wasn't it a failure ?" " Wasn't it long ?" " Wasn't it tedious ?" "Wasn't it absurd ?" These are the questions we have been un ceasingly asked during the last three days; but, fearing that a variety of honest, though ill-considered, answers might have betrayed us into something bordering upon inconsis tency, we deemed it prudent to laugh, to smile, to shake our head, and, in every known conventional mode to stave off everything in the shape of a reply. However, the time has come when we can no longer keep silent with impunity, and we will now endeavour to, satisfy the catechists as best we can. Before doing so we deem it only fair to preliminarily object that all the questions are leading ones, and that we are not to be greatly blamed if it should happen that we be...
