Til. controver»y between Meur«. Glad,tone ,nd Lowe on a possible extension of the suffrage to ' the counties, has, like many other controversies, aammed aomewhat wider proportion than the original grounds of debate would have indicated. Disentangled from the cloud of worda in which these eminent dialecticians have concealed their opinions, we believe the position of Mr. Glad-stone is that the suffrage is at once a light and a privilege, the poaaewion of which ahonld be given to everybody who may be likely to nee lL Mr. Lowe, on the other hand, having trades', umona, mtrikem, and the enltu, of the Claimant before hia eye, (and not forgetting the election for btoke) is inclined to doubt whether scattering yotea broadcaatlathe beat way to enanre their judicious use. For ourselves, believing in ex diency aa the aole law in. politics, and not lievioq In the Rlghte pf Mao, we believe the franchise to be a means, pud not an end; and more disposed to admit that every man right to a vote than we are to agree that he baa a right to be a magiatrate. Society has the right, indeed the duty, to make those regulationa It bolda beat lor the general good and if giving power to ignorance is likely to be injurious, it is wise and well to refuse that power. We are not unreserved admirers ol the Reform measure* of '32. We tbiok it was moat unfortunate that the moderate meaaure of Reform the younger Pitt propoeed nearly* gfty years before was not .adopted, and thus the old English" constitution retained. We write thus, entertaining no feelings of distrust or disrespect of any class of our countrymen, but because we amcerely believe that a reatrlcted franchise would be exercised more thoughtfully, and treated aa a thing of greater value, and be held :n much higher eateem than h;a become the caae under the present system.
party declined, in the teeth of history, common", sense, and experience, to believe that the great northern despotism* were booeat in their" newborn seal for religious liberty and popular rights. How little a love of war could, be fairly imputed *?• li C*Mnet or the Conservative party we thine has been sufficiently demonstrated by the sensible and hone»t tone of the ministerial Qlohe and Standard, in reply to that high-minded, honourable, and most consistent journal, the Daily Telegraph. Thia has affected to find in the rumour that Russia bad declined our proposed mediation, an insult demanding immediate vengeance I and nothing else would suffice its zeal for the national honour but a declaration ef war! This demand the Telegraph made in an article of which Mr. Jefferson Brick might have been proud, and which was a perfect parody of journalistic fury. But the saner journals—those which have been at all times consistently Conser-v&tivt and (which is almost the same thing,) patriotic, hastened to subdue the flames these people sought to kindle, with the cold water of good sense and calm reflection, and the Telegraph stands alone in its discreditable affectation of needless rage.
There have been too many exposures, too many tna!*, too many half whispered *candal* in Lughah commercial circle* of late year*, for claim any *uperiorily In trading morality over the rest of the world. Still we have hardly reached that organiaation of roguery they *eem to enjoy in the United State*. There all com merce *eem* one " Long Firm," with nobody pro*ecute it—pos*ibly becauae the whole community are mclnded in the "Co." Among other production* due to the natural fertility of the *oil bank* abound In North America. In England these institutions are of the very essence of re-*pect*bility; and their occa*ional failures (when they do happen) are alway* due to %ry eaccp. tional causes indeed. In . the States they break often that the TV*** recently ailed beat part of two columns with merely the names and no-minal capital* of thoae which bad recently «ua-pended in one or two of the leading " *tate* Indeed they all seem there to be organised on tb. basis of that adventurous establishment here which promiaed eighteen per cent. 00 depoaita, and piobably would have paid it—if other depoaita had come in. The promoter of that enterprise came nnder the attention of the law, and. In *ptte of an elaborate anancc theory, and 1 pretensions to personal piety either, is, or wa inmate of Her Majesty's jails.
The following letter (which we slightly abridge) on Lord Carnarvon and the Government has been addres*ed to the Editor of the who gives it such prominence that we believe it baa official knowledge for its inspiration : —

But Lord Carnarvon's observations chanced to be made on the vory afternoon when the Cabinet Council was to meet to consider the Russian refusal, and by a very natural orror it :* generally auppooed that he spoke lu the name of his colleagues and delivered himself of the sentiments of the whole Cabinet

Many ships mutt make such calla ; and being, as we are, the one port on the Channel most adjacent to the English metropoln, it I* moat natural that they ,hould call here. It must be remembered, also, that, thanks to the universal adoption of steam, the tendency of modern commerce is to pass more and more along regular and fixed line*. For the *ailmg *hip, the length aad con*equent coat of whose voyages was always doubtful, is every day more and more superseded by steamships wh *e arrival* and departure* can be predicated with *ome degree of certainty. Steamer* can pretty generally make what port they pleaae, and are no longer ai the mercy of wind* and wave*, save when the wind rises to a hurricane, and waves are masters of the situation, Thua steamers take their course from port to port with much the *amo certainly of calling at the inter-venmg harbours, as a railway train has of pas*, ing the *tation* on the line It traverse*. Now Southampton is admirably adapted to be a great junction on this railway of the sea; for here much foreign commerce most naturally seeks the Euglleh market, and it *hould be our conaant eare to attract such commerce here, even if at the commencement some sacrifices are demanded
