His dress 1* almost invariably of some dark velveteen, slashed in the arms and open at tho knees, so as to display very white and flue linen underneath, either very full, or else neatlyerlinped, worked, and plaited.

The most interesting and striking event In the political world since my last communication, has been the great and desperate attempt at a rally, nmde by the shattered and disjointed opposit ion, with Lord George Bentinek at their head. The plan was artfully contrived, so j as to work noon the pussioiiH ami cupidity of the Irish muiuucrs, m imprn. ily uu*ir iu*Bintnnvv, m jft'iunf? a ni.ijority. and overthrowing tho government of Lord Jolin Russell. The fulcrum on which this movement was bused. was n great eleemosynary railway hill, whlcii was made a pretext for bribing Ireland to combine with the protectionist*, and overtiirow the ministry. By thia hill a loan was to he raised of ifi million* sterling. to be scattorcd profusely all over Ireland. It wa* a huge halt for speculator*, jobbers, and the greedy nrniy of locusts which wcro ready to rush together, to obtain, in a general scramble, a rich share of spoil The halt took lor a time; the Government trembled in Its seat.

At length Lord John Kussoll ranm out with the decided declaration that lie would stand or fall on tho issue of that bill. Then tho Irish member* were themselves alarmed; they knew well that the opposition had not the confidence of the country, and that It would be impossible to form a government out of all Us materials. \ caucus was held; there was a hesitation between the golden offers of the protectionists and the good will and actual good deeds of the existing government The question really was. should a present good, however incomplete, performing by the present ministry. be rejected for the inintiI>^tnutin.1 shadows of golden ) vinlfiiij* of prosperity delusively held out to them by the I bill' So blinded, however, were they by the rieli And golden visions, Hint they could not bring themselves absolutely to reject tile " bird iu the bush.'' though they were rather afraid If they stood by the scheme they might lose the "bird in the hand." Accordingly It was decided to get Lord tieorgo to postpone his measure for a fortnight Here, however, they were Hoik united by Lord John Russell; he refused to consent to keep the go. verument and the count rv iu suspense, and hy this flrm stand the whole nITair and scheme was exploded and the government triumphed this tluie. What other device may yet he resorted to remains to be seen The Irish are having a great deal done for them, hut they urc discontented and and want more There ere elements of dissatisfaction brewing 011 all hands, while the ever and and daily increasing of the intensity of the famine and the dread of what may yet happen before the next barvest. places the government ami I lie rouutry iu a position of extreme embarrassment and difficulty.
