The unseemly brawls which disgrace the Assembly, and disfigure its proceedings, have received new stimulus from Mr. Buchanan's attack upon the Land Agents. Mr. Pitz patrick — the Land Agent par excellence — may successfully repudiate all desire to bring his business transactions into the arena of the Assembly, and may offer apparently the most satisfactory explanations of his discrimination in his dual position, as agent for numerous eager clients anxious to wring improper concessions from the Minister for Lands, and fl.fitli« representative of a large constituency whose duty it is to see that the- Minister carries out the Act in its integrity, without fear or favour, but thinking people may well pause before they allow themselves to be convinced that the position of Member of the Legislative Assembly does not help the busi ness of the Land Agent, and that there is no ground for Mr: Buchanan's charges.
