Two things go to make up the idea of a dynastyr—the perpetua tion of the race, and the continuance of power in the hands of successive generations.

The inquest upon the late Mr. Sadleir has resulted in a verdict with which no one can qmirrel, but which is seldom found in these days, when almoit any act of crime is held to imply a state of mind incompatible with moral responsibility.
