THE address of Lord NUGENT to the voters of Aylesbury deserves pointing out, as the only document of the kind ever written by a Ministerialist and a high officer of the Crown to a popular consti- tuency. It is bold, generous, independent, hearty, uncompromis- ing: it breathes the true spirit of a People's Representative : it is neither truckling to the Mob nor fawning upon the Government : it is full of charity and warmth of heart, while it is fearless of giving offence, and careless of all but integrity. It is, unhappily, a leave-taking after service; but its sentiments may be selected as a guide and model before service to both candidates and electors.
