Ariother judgeship has fallen to Lord Derby, Vice-Chancellor Kindersley having

resigned. His seat has been filled up by Mr. Malin; a good lawyer and sturdy politician, but without much :special reputation in debate. The Tories have now a grand .opportunity for bringing forward new men ; but they have not, we fear, been lucky in their fast choice. Sir John Bolt, the new Attorney-General, made a very poor speech indeed to his .Gloucestershire constituents, and. when called on- to compliment the retiring Chief Justice Erie, he had next to nothing to say. Sir Bounden Palmer and Mr. Coleridge will make mincemeat of him insthe House, and there is no Sir Hugh. Cairnsto extend his triple shield of eloquence, courtesy, and brains.
