THE BOWBAL free P K E S S, anil Mittaoono, bumuwano, a'nd Kakoamon- Advocate SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1883. Just by way of a little diversion, and espe cially now that Parliament has assembled, it would not be "Love's Labour Lost" if some honorable members were to ask them selves the question,—What is really meant by.responsible government? Theoretically it means that Ministers of the Crown shail be held responsible to Parliament; that is, each Minister shall be held accountable to the Legislative Assembly, in particular, for the efficicncy of the department over which he presides as chief. In their collective form Ministers are responsible for the advice tendered to the Governor on any question of public concernment. So far, our legislation has the semblance of being of a free and independent character, based upon wliiit we complaisantly term " our free and enlighted Constitution." It is just such a constitution as the people of Ireland are now yearning for, and if they had it they wo...

Now tlioro were about 200 good bullocks in the paddock in quostion. They were inteuded for market, but could not be topped up properly, at least so Mr. X thought, for many weeks. A few days after tho stock man's vi^it, Smarty camo and offered £4 a head, for the lot. He got them for £1 5s.
