The Easter recess has left Parliament in a ni'ld and rather dull humour The excite ment of the crisis has subsided into n sleepy ncquiescence, and the window-taxes, and the Caffre war. which formed the discussion of the last nights of the sitting, went off as tamely ns iu ull probability will go off the Jew Bill, and the income-tax, which are to innu^urate its re-nst-emMin^. As a matter of course, passion wefk was dull enough in ?itself, and not very interesting in its imme diate prospects. A meeting was held at Manchester, on the 1 7th. to hear the report of their two re presentatives on financial and parliamentary reform. Although on worn topics, the speeches of Messrs. Gibson and Bright were peculiarly spirited ; they were on their own ground, and had the free use of their limbs. Mr. Gibson was leas decisive than we should have expected on the results of free-trade; he, seemed. perfecMy contented with the simple expres...

'u*, At .'length1 'there appears to' be a change''fur the worse in the fortunes of 'the Turon dig gers, and it isnoSv'our duty to repo t that success is not nearly s-- general as hitherto1 This circumstance may be accounted for ''in two ways.

To.the hundreds who migrated there originally, very little difficulty was ex perienced in obtaining profhabL1 ground, but with the increase of numbers tha. difficulty has increased, and there are now great numbers rambling about the Turon river in quest of new diggings, many of whom are doing little good, and some none whatever. Another reason of the change is the exhaus tion of some of the best boles which in numerous cases have not lasted' more than a few days. The loss of time consequent upon the necessary search for new spots, reduces the average earnin...
