SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 13,1869. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 13 November 1869
SATDEDAT, NOVBMBEH 13. 1869. Oki of tbe last days of tbe expiring Parlia ment has been marked in the Assembly by references to things gone by and to obarges imputing offences and errors whioh might well be buried in oblivion. One attaok of this kind naturally brings up another, and in tbe end the deliberations whioh ought to be distinguished by dignity and moderation oome to be marked by the oharaoteristios of common soolcls. It is to be hoped that the next Assembly will ' turn over a new leaf ' in this respect, for eertainly the recriminations that have been indulged in by the present are calculated to convey very unfavourable impressions to persons at a distance. It would seem as if many of the members were bo amenable to charges of positive criminality that they dared not speak on any publio subieot without tbe most damaging references to their private characters. 'Liar,' and ' perjurer' are no unoommon terms ; and if tbe word 'thief' is not used also it is implied. We believe th...

In the course of the Pariismentary oalm that has followed the- passing of the late great measures of reform in England, some snbjeots have come under discussion in the British Press with an evident view to what is likely to be brought before the Legislature during the next session. Amongst the taott promi nent of these is the land question, with a dis tinct refereneeto the Irish aapeet of the ease. It haa been long sinoe announced, as dearly . as any polioy can be stated, that the adminis tration of Mr. Gladstone, having dealt with the religious grievanoe in Ireland, intended to make a thorough reform in the land system there ; and the great majority whioh *the Premier has in the House of Commons trtll oertainly enable him to carry eut this policy if, he persists in it.
