Mr. Disraeli has taken farewell of the electors of Bucks,

in a letter which suggests that he is practising the new oratory he believes to be adapted to the House of Lords. "Next to the favour of our Sovereign," he is indebted to the fidelity of the electors of Bucks. Throughout his career he has aimed at two chief results. "Not insensible to the principle of progress, I have endeavoured to reconcile change with that respect for tradition which is one of the main elements of our social strength ; and in external affairs, I have endeavoured to develop and strengthen our Empire, believing that combination of achievement and responsibility elevates the character and condition of a people." It is not without emotion that he terminates his connection with the electors, but he will still have the happiness of living among them, and "in another House of Parliament have the privilege of guarding over their interests and their honour." The Tory electors should present Lord Beaconsfield with his picture, in that new character of Uriel in a coronet, streaming above the slopes of Hughenden as the Guardian Angel of Bucks.
