28 SEPTEMBER 1867, Page 1

Mr. Disraeli is to be entertained at a great banquet

at Edin- burgh on the 29th of next month. It is intended to be a very imposing affair, as it is already given out that fifty beers and other persons of distinction have consented to be stewards. It would be well, however, for some one in Mr. Disraeli's own con- fidence to let it be generally known whether the key-note of the homage done to him is to be "-Mr. Disraeli, the great friend of Democracy," or "Mr. Disraeli, the great bulwark against Demo- cracy." Both cries are raised together just at present, in rather an unmusical discord. Facts are for the former, but at present the party cue seems to be against the facts.
