The Marquis of Ilartington, after his re-election for North Lancashire

without a division, ramie a short address to his con- stituents. He defended strongly the suspension of Governor Eyre, "whose measures could only have been justified by the most pressing and imperative necessity," defended the action of Government in bringing in a Reform Bill, and hoped that whether the House of Commons accepted it or not it would at least ex- press its sentiments unmistakably. If this Parliament could do something for the suppression of mutiny and disaffection in Ire- land it would do much, if it could carry on financial reform it would do more, but if it could settle the question of Reform, it would do more than any Parliament of late years.
