It will be seen, we think, by this resu»ze of

the drift of the speeches of the week, that there is no kind of relation to Liberal or Conservative politics in the sympathies of honourable members.. The sentiment which leads some men to side with adversity and others with success, the scorn which some feel for weakness, the aversion which others feel towards imperiousness, the principle which makes a few dislike conquest, are all or any of them sufficient to turn the balance of sympathy, but ordinary Liberal or Conserva- tive principles are at fault in the matter. We may add that a great. deal more attention is devoted by these members out of town to. our own Army question than to the rights or wrongs of the war.
