OUR LOMOW CORRESPONDENCE. Tk? Dcrby-Disradl mil nnd Tory Conces ?iau la Parliament. Lo*ik>?, Keb. 27, 18?7. The reform qnc&tlon in Parliament has &.sumed soother new phaesi Mr. Disraeli, the most accomplish ed of political strategists, baa withdrawn the vague and abstract re ao lotion a which have occasioned* so much dleou <sion, and baa agreed to bring in a bill some time Beit week. More than this, be bM succecJed In en trapping the opposition into a constrictive pledge that the second rending of tbe bin shall not be opposed. Thus he hat not only gamrd another week or two of valuablo time, bat ho has completely outflanked the opposition? who held a mooting yeeierday and resolved to oppose the resolutions which Mr. Dixraeli has just dexterously abandoned. Tho steps wb'ch hare led op to tbi* now position of aflklrs are very Interesting. TirS (TO KFVATIVB rABTV. Ton have already been advised of the call for a meet ing of Lord Derby's supporters last Mocuay afternoon. The a*4emblsge was a very targe one, and to everybody's eurprtjeIt nas also very uuammoas. The toriee, wtih nil their dialike to reform, felt that the crisis was Im portant and that their only hope waa to follow tbelr leader*. Lord Derby mud* a speech In which he an nounced that It was the Intention cf tbe government to offtr a reduced and extended franchise, cut I mated to ad mit 400,000 m'.te Englishmen to the polls. He added that this was to be his last effort to settle the reform qncstion, and thai if this failed he would never accept nfflce again. If tho idea of 400,0JO new voters startled the torles, so did ibis per onil I'.ecKratlon of L>. rd Derbjr, Mtd the result was tUat ih<> noble trader of the conserve* Uvea received the most hearty asnrancos ?t support With thle understanding t'.ie mee'.ing broke up to r; aeeemble upon the ministerial betchee the mm ?renin* ma noi a or oo**o*s. ? Tbe excitement In and around Westminster TV.aee on Honday waa most intense. Outside several burn'red yxtroons waited to Me and cheer the members ot Parlia jnent ee they drove up. Inaido the hall crowds of peoplo %ere gathered in the hope of being admitted to ifce ?'.rangers' gallery. Tho House of Lords waa compare tlvsly deserted. Again, aa ttpon the occasion or Mr dDlanell'a opening of the reform debate, the Hours of Commons was filled with a moat distinguished audlenc*. ^galn the Prince of Walee, tbe Dnke of Edinburgh and )be Dnke of Cambridge were present. Again the floor of fre Houae wan an okwely packed with members that Kme were obliged to alt upon the stepe or stand agaiust e walla. The opposition benohea were especially fall. PHiere was very little cheering as the leeders of the two ?srtt?s entered. Aa before, the eutloslt^ of assets o?srcame any considerations of j winal Fntereai, The i mid'ot.ce fM rao~t brilliant and the speakers were wojttiy of the aud onca 0i r* II, Lo*e, Bright nuO Gh.d-i.one?the four lea Hag Pmrlif llary craters of En, land?followed ea h other in splendid sue ussion daring the reform debute. WfJ CHANCELLOR OF THE HXTIWjrKR. Mr. Pl-raeli never aj prarod more at bis ease, more cool, rao.e collected. I nr.ioiclfully abused during the past fortnight, and facing a House tint he felt was most tinfilenuly 10 t.ls schemes, be was as self-posse s d as Napoleon and as Jaunty aa Palmerston. When he rose to reply to a question of Mr. Nowdegate, in rega'.l to the presence of a Cardinal at the Dublin Lord Mayor's din ner, tlie House cheered him out cf sheer sympnthy. Quietly, and with all his old satirical skill, be dissected poor IJewdegate amid the laughter and -applause of all parties, and when bo sat down tlioro ws3 a general whis per of admiration. Again rising, Mr. Disraeli began to explain the application of the reform resolutions. His whole monuer had changed. No longer inflatedly solemn, as he waa daring his first reform speech; no longer keenly satirical, as he was during bis Oaring of Mr. Ne*de;ate, bo simply staled the intentions bf the government, in the tone and manner or a mm of busi ness. There were no fi 'urea of rhctone, no appeals to party spliit, no leering for applause. In nn hour he had stated every dvtail of the proposed scheme of the government so frmkly, so clearly and so explicitly as to totally confound those critics who bad been denouncing him as trie', v. Yet it was Imnosslble not to see thatovon this frankness was strategical. He had risen to explain the resolution", but lie t;aid little about them. He was giving the details of a bill that was not yet drawn?that was not yet beforo the House The members listened to him with a coldness that would have dUC'iuragod a less experienced speaker. At the close of ovry one of hi3 statements be was comp' 1!?3 to pause for several moment*', as the member.; turned away fro-n him and discussed what be had rr.i: among themselves. Recalled to attention by t'c > ? p. Acer's cry of ?-Order 1 or.ter I" the members ?? ..ill face about again, and Mr. Di?meh would re ne. The punishments which be promised to Inflict t o corrupt constituencies were cordially cheered, >??* M-ept this there was not a single hearty bi rst i f , t .. ise from either .-lrie of the Hou'e during tl . poech. Without faltering for au liiFtan'. a'1: i this chilling retention was most novel to ' . ?isl;( he concluded his tatk and calmly rsum'' ..-a at. an "nrn?KWNT vembkb." Q ? I: a-< a G.ish, before tlio tones of Mr. Disraeli's ? o.ce had died away, Mr Robart Lowe sprang to his feet and dathed in'o a speech that electrified the House. Mr. Lowe Is a plain, c'derly gentleman, with silvery white hair, the albino oyes and complexion and a clear voice that makes bis very rapid enunciation perfectly distinct. Ills voice is full of electricity, his manner is nervously cloe'rie, and to speaks in op grams that dnz z!e like forked lightning and aio almost as deadly. There can be no question that his speeches killed Gladstone's bill at the !act Parliament, and you may Imaulne, then, the sensations with which the tories beheld thin power ful Shiver dtish at the threat nf Disrieh witu the vim and force of an oratorical bulldog. Tho whole House cheered him on, and he worried and shook IMsraoH's speeches and resolutions until they were evidently life lots. It was Impossible cot to pity the Chancellor of the Exchequer, roasted liko a martyr at tho stake; but it was equally impossible not to admire the skill with which Mr. Lowe turned and basted his victim. The House, so apathetic before, now listened eagerly for every word, and applauded every stroke of wit and sarcasm. There was a swing, a dash, an flan about Blr. Lowe's oratory that carried everything and everybody along with it. One felt that the entertainment was most cruel, and yet most exciting. It was like seeing ft poor fellow kno ted, or a Sepoy blown to pieces, or a battery stormed by fierce, agile Zouaves. There vas to "lot up" to the infliction! At one moment Mr. Lowe riddled the resolutions, showing that they had no more appll catlnn to tho practical business in hand than Squire Thornhlli's favorite preliminaries "that the whole is greater than a part, whatever Is If, and tho tbrce antics of o triangle are greater than n r'riht angle." The next moment ho demonstrated that the government l.nd 110 plan; tint thoir bill wa? I k a balloon in tho air, that it only existed in r>ic :o. Then he ridiculed tho declaration that tho reform question must no longer decide the fats of the ministry, asking why tho terle3 should be al lowed to ??scape responsibility, by what right they tried to bind the Honso to keep the peace towards them, nnd w ho had set th" brand of Cain upon them that uo man should V ill them. Tho cheering, now perfectly over whelming, did not slacken when Mr. Love, with eq'ial vigor, rr.tlrl7cd tlje radicals and the reform demonstra tion', nr.d liearty spplatiro greeted his avowal that he had become converted to tho principle of a moderate re form bill, although he still feared the dangers of mob law and the tyranny of tno majority. Rumor says that Mr. IjO'\% is to bo rewart'ed for tbl? speech by an office when tho liberals again obtain power. Tbe rumor Is doubtful, but tbe reward Is deserved. Unquestionably Mr. Lowe';. Breech killed the Disraeli resolutions. jo:!> lUcuiUT "? To everybody's a'tort hmcnt Mr. John Bright rose to follow Mr. Lowe, and bt;;?an I it cor: i>!iiHotiiine him and bkiccIdk with hira." Brl?lit'? 11 porilf (.entlenian, some what ro.?etnbllT>g J->hn Gilbert, tho well known come dian, in personal awearaixc. He wan laboring ut-.dor a sevwre cold, and spoke with great dlttlculty, but with iroat enenry. The open ing portion of lm speech wm merely a repeti tion of Mr. Lowe's ideas, and often of his words: but when ho had sw :ng himself (wear of this remarkable agreement he rapidly developed another lino of attack. It is not to doscribo the sensation catisod by the coin idenco !n Views between Bright and Lowe. unless you car. Imagine Tbad Stevens una Val!?ndlj:bam rising lo sustain each othor. Although excelleully received. Mr. Bripht's speech was not bv aoy means so effective as that of Jlr. Lowe. Bright is a cannon that overshoots the mark; Lowe is a needle-gun that bits the mark plnmply. Bright tries to buliy the House, Instead of trying to load It; he abases hit opponents when he only wishes to satirize them. Ho has a humor that is not less telling than Mr. Lowe's wit: bit it Is not so fatal. There were roars of Istnthter when he ridiculed the toriee for turning rernrmers, quoting their own speeches against them, and ?< king oat particular member* for personal allusions; nt still everybody frit that this line or argument bore as hanlly against Mr. Bright as against tho torirs. for If they have changod planes so lias iie. It is not half so ah'urd to see lories supporting reform as to see Mr. Bright opposing an extonslon of tho suffrage. Bosldos this, Mr. Bright teems to have no real influence in Par l ament. Members are alwars glad to listen to him, for he is a most accomplish) d orator; but they pay no prac tical attention to his views. He occupies the same rank In Parliament that Wendo'.l Phillips does n American politics? the rank of a brililant, able, eloquent, Itrprac tic ib'e man. Outs.de ot the House Mr. Bright finds his real sphere. and be s-ems always to bo speaking to an O' teul ? nudienre?to buncombe, aa they say at Washing ton. His speech showed that he hated the torlei, and wanted Gladstone back iuto office; whereas It should have shown, in order to Keep step with his principles, tl at be was anxioim for relorm, no matter by what parly bestowed, and was ready to nccept anything that would benefit the people. R?X(>RM AS A VTTAt QtTtSTIOX And apropos to these remarks concerning Bright, It Is only fair to say that the tones have logically lh<t advan tage of tlietr opponents In the pending discus.- ion. The radicals and llboruls liavo insisted that reform l.i a neces sltr. and tho tmios now acknowledge this necessity. All parties bi-inv thus agteed, and oven Mr. Towe and tho Adullsmites having been converted since the opening of Parliament. Mr. i>lsraell asks that the reform question stall be tpken out of tho mire of partisanship and treated as an exceptional, a phenomenal a'Vair. He says that, alacc such a universal agreement is phenomenal, ana sloe-, the dangers of delay are also phenomenal, there can be no danger of establishing an ovll precedent by allow ing tho g! vorntnen' to consult with the whole House In fr.miiiiif a Reform bill. It is no reply to this to rldiculo Mr. lMsraeiL Mr. I/?we may compare hlni to Cain, and Mr. Ur ght may compare him to a dry goods clerk, ask ing his customer*, "What do yon please to wantf bat, seriously, Mr. Disraeli has simple accepted th-< radicals and llborals upon their own terms. If the country be in so great danger from the reform quaHlon as Mr. Bright asserts, then there onght to be no party question about it. All hands should set to work to ?avo tho sinking ship, Instesd of (topping to quarrel about whose watch it ts on deck. It Is easy to . ay sharp aud cutting things about the tor.es, and equally easy to reply to them; hut tbs vital burin ops is to save the country, wlilch, aocot .lla: to Mr. Bright Is In p Til. Disraeli has proceeded timidly. He has been, In fai t, cowardly. But la It right to to rash wben one tnls ake may revolutionize Kng'and, as Mr. Bright has o'leu d'Claiedf Proceeding by resolutions; presenting abstract resolutions that commit the government to nulling: describing tb.-details of a Mil not yet drawn, ami i.naily abandoning the resolutions altogether. Cer tainly that is not parlimentary, not manly, not Id ao> eordaaee with British precedents. Mr. Disraeli know* this a well ns blscrlt'cs; but be Is feeling bis way, like a man In the dark, cnrefuily and anxiously, tow a d t some conclusion that the House and the oonn'ry will accept. His resolutions are ahtin doi.eii, but they have taught him what errors to av->l<t -such as plurality of votes, for example. His bill has iKon debated before It Is drawn up; but this debate has given hiui some light upon the provisions of an to ceptaMe bill. Mr. Bright says that nil this caution Is simply for the purpose of keeping In office; but Mr. I) Israeli fays that u is for the purpose of saving Rngland from Mr. Blight's revolution; ana we are bound to hear both sides. The onlv statesman who doee seem to take an unprejudiced. Iislnterested view of the sufcflect Is Oiad'tono. He appears more mxloos for reform than for office, and to him, more than to any other living mm. will the passive of a \-form bill be due, tf any su< li bill he passed this session. uiumnroii cw*n? tfs Dmra r.?temine to the House of Commons on Mondav, we mnv Imagine that during 'he foregoing episode Messrs. WaipoVs and Lalng have delivered tbelr speeches and driv en nalt the audience away, and now Mr. Gladstone ris -e lo cl"--e the liberal side of the debate. He Is in excellent h tuner, snJ ever" now and then his smile brightens Into s laugh as some happv recollection touches his fanny. H.s vo ce Is as so.t, aasaeet and as distinct as n silver bell, 3'.<l every other sound la hushed to listen to its mel ody. What he sar* is worthy o< the consummate graccs of "his crstory. While shrewdly reviewing the govern ment plan and pointing out Its errors and It* weak. t.esree, he boidly avows that he will not be found fkc I.0:11 iv opposing the government upon this subject, but is rea-iy to reuaer every assistance towards the cotnpl'. tion of a reform bill that will aatlafy tho country. If Me(?r*. I.owe and Bright hoped io Involve Gladstone la their ramraigir against the lories they were entirely mistaken. From tlr?t to last-he studiously avoids any. thing irritat'ng or set ere, and deliver* his criticisms m th# style of a friend offering advice Any country might be proud of such an orator; but t>w countries l ave blMted w|th fO sincere a stutf ican Mr. ?la-i?tf,ne t^eliv believes In the urgency or ti,? r.-cepsitT lor re.orm, and he sacrifices lo this ho nor all th" mo?l?es wl, ch usually rule politicians.

Mr. Gladstone la tbo leader of the liberals, but tho radicals have not yet accepted him wholly, and it must l>e ivmembero't lhat the radicals are the fellows who have raided all this agitation a*'out re form. They look upon themselves aa duped by Disraeli, and not sulilciently championed by Gladstone, and they are commencing lo murmur. A mo.ith w.li have elapsed since tho opening 01 Parliament before the government can bring in anv bill. So far nothing has been done. Resolutions have bMI presented only to be withdrawn; a hill has been talked about, but not laid before the House; aud now the subject ha* been again postponed, with Mr. Gladstone's cou?cnt. The radicals ascribe this delay both lo Disraeli's shrewd manoourrcs and lo Glad stone's "ovorsttallied courtesy," and ihey are deter mined to do something to hurry ma'ters al< ag. At llipir meetings yesterday it was anaugod to call anoth'-r popu lar maf.s meeting for Saturday next, and lo hold another popular demonstration at Easter, such gentlemen as fir. Beales. M. A., and Mr. Ernest Jones, do not like to have all tne fine rrcocl.es made in 1'arlianient; they want to talk, also, and to see their eloquence lo tho pipers. This Is the thing that may upset all the schemes 01* mombers of Parliament, for tho people will clamor for manhood suffrage, and no member of Congress has Set been bold enough to advocate that on the lioor of the O'iBO. Evon Mr. Dright dares not face that music except at public meetings. Now the dilemma which has been pointed out in previous letter.] a ain recurs. Sup po c Parliament does pa&s a lair reform bill, will that satisfy tho people? Not at all. The men who walk in pr.'ce--*ions and attend mass meetlcgs and cheer and shout cann"t be satisllod by lowering the property quali fication. They want that quahlValion abolished alto gether. If a ?6 franchise be adopted they will hold meetings, and wall: in processiona, and checrand Ehout just tbo Fame, lutell gent Englishmen turn up their uosc3 at these working people und cay, "These are not tho fellows we def ire to please by a reform bill;" but the fact is that these fellows arc the only men who demand reform for its own sake and not as a parly measure. The poor men, the laborers, are the people who have been agitating ihe question, and any settlement which does not reach them will not stop tho agitation; and yet Eiij/lisliuien of all parlies bay that a radical settlement which will reach these agitators is an impossibility. Here, then, is tho dilemma, and Heaven only knows how it will bo escaped. Tbo claascs lo be all'ected by lowering tho franchise do not care for tbo suffrage, have never made any organized effort to obtaiu the suffrage, and many ot them would only sell their sulfrago if they ha l votes. The working classes are anxious for the 8' ITrage, have been demanding It for years, an ! are moro determined now than evor before. Disraeli and Glad stone may arrange matters in the Bouse among tho politicians; but who wilt arrange mattery outside the House among tbo earnest masses of tbe people ? FRANCE.

[ From the Paris Doha's, Fob. 29 ]

In readlna the report of th:s sitting one might bo led to bel'ove that the Chamber 13 la not yet clearly d'elded a.c to the r'les whlob should be applied t-> the exercise of this riiiht; for hardly had M Lanluinals spoken his firs' words when h? found himself interrupted and re called to the question by the l'r^idont. The speaker, In commencing an exnmlrn'lon of the mo'l'flco'ions made In the decree of November 24, lat50, had thought he might call in question the Seuattu C'nmltum of July It, 1500. which modified in a percpdhle manner the' prerogatives of the legislative body, and notably those resulting frcm the right of nd'r.^s. Bowing to tlio ob-orvations of tlio President, M. iAnJninai? laid aside that preliminary discussion In order to conllne l:imjelf absolutely to the limits set d '^rn by himself end those of lils coileasruos who p esentcd the deman i of Interpellation. The point which the speaker wished to 4Iocs* oridcullv camu, we think, within the limits of that privilege. P.nt li seems to result from this prece dent. that, the right of addressing an interpellaii >n to the government on a spec'al and well defined subject expires at the precise limits of the tcr-na in wlrcb the question Is put. If Ibis were the case the new privilege, already embarrassed by so miny obs'aclcs before it can be used at all, and so "narrowly circumscribed when oxercised, wtild be wrll nig\ impracticable or denuded of all eili cacy. [From the Paris Patrie, Feb. 211 Was the concession of tbo address In 1^30 the restitu tion of arighi? No: the addre-s is not a right; It Is a form of the relations which the aovernment thought ne cessary to establish?or to re-os:ablish, If tho word j? preferred?between itself and tbo rreat bodi03 of the State. Tliat form having been condemned by s'x years' experience, the Emperor changes It bv virtue of the power given to him by the docreo of 1852: but, if he modifies the form he doos not alter the principle; that ia to sav, he In no way diminish tho aotion of tbo legislative power controlling the acts of tho executive. Quite the reverso; lie enlarges and gives precision to that ac lon; l.e gives (0 those who exercise it the means, not only of controlling bis acts and aasociat Ing thnmsnlves with them, but of doing all that at the proper time aad with a full '.:nowle<V;o of the subjcct.

Nothing shows better how fsl.ee waa this attl'uds than tlio concluslan arrived at by M. Jules Favre, when he declared that tho address belonged to the Chamb-r, and must be main tained. How maintain It? Does M Jules Favre wish to provoke a new oath of the Jeu do raumo? Does he Intend to sul?*tltate a revolutionary sltuatHn for tbo constitutional exercise of thi legislative power? fluch has been the regrettable consequence of an interpellation which, employed as it hat been by the honorable speakers of the opposition, could have no practical issue. In fact the Emperor and tbe constitu tion wore necessarily the subjects of this dobate. Not only was the decree of tbe 19th of January dl cus??d, but the authority and power of the sovereign himself. M. Jul*s Favre, in an impassioned Improvisation, gave its most radical conclusion to the Interpellation. His >pc<'c& waa only a bitter Indictment against tho present and tbe past of the empire. It tvas he who uttered tbo last word of the opposition, and that was a menace.

His superb and eloquent reply goea right to the feet, and calls things by their right names. M. Jutes Favrs is a great artist, but to be superior to himself he only requires to be natural. In One, the political question of the debate has been raised.

What was the result? during the war. when tho prices ol everything were rising, ihe rates'of m. snrance went down. The companies made money, be cause people were more vigilant fur the security of property, which was constantly enhancing In value Thus, ir a man bad an Insurance or $10,000 under oM prices, his policy would not allow him mora than "?-? sum ir his property was de troyed, whereas his goods war* in cash worth an advance of fifty or a hundred per omX upon the amount But after the war prices of things began to fall, and singularly enough insuranoa dlsaauK oommonced.

Mr. Barnes does not wiahle acciwe such persons of dishonesty, or to attribute ths re. verses ef 1885 and 1866 to incendiarum as a prime cause It is not human nature to be ever volant and wholly dlsiuterestM where such a course dne? not result In ia> dividual profit, or whwe the contrary would porohaoaa be a gale The remedies which the Insurance Superintendent will suggest are, among others, the boaring of a portion of the toss by the insured?to tho extent of not mora than on* fiffai of the amount?and the adjustment or ratos so m to make Hie receipts of premiums adequate to lossse in the first case the property owner would be more oee 22* ft* hl# S?ods and more vigilant against ths oooiut rence of fire.
