DAILY ISSUE. TfflJUSDAY, 2ND FEBKUARY, 1865. AFTEU the sacrifice that was made some months ago in sending1 inferior men into the Upper House, on the sole ground that they pledged themselves to vote for the reform of the constitution of that Legislative Chamber, it is aggravating to find that there is to be no such reform.
