The defeat of Mr. Carvell Williams at Nottingham has hurt

severely the feelings of the Home-rulers of Nottingham, who have accordingly fallen foul of Mr. Alderman Acton, who did his best to aid Mr. Wright in his canvass. The result has been a correspondence in the Nottingham papers, in which Mr. Acton comes off very decidedly the best. It is strange how any one can suppose that Liberal principles involve Home-rule,—or, indeed, are not quite in a different political plane.
