The Liverpool election is remarkable for the return- of Mr.

J. C. Ewart, and by so great a majority as 6718 to 4262. His opponent was selected by the Tory party as a fitting heir to Mr. II. T. Liddell ; the organization to support him appears to have been of the usual kind. On the other hand, Sir George Bonham's random, " jolly-full-bottle " character of hustings Toryism, was not exactly of the Liverpool currency ; and though 2ilr. Ewart did nothing to canvass or rouse the constituency, he is chosen by more than five to four. It is the first election since the passing of the new act to prevent bribery and corruption; whose operation may have assisted Sir George Bonham's principles and speeches to produce the unexpected result.
