Tlic death of U. S. Senator John
Franklin Miller, of California, at
Washington, on the 8th, deprives

"There is no Haw in the lecord of

A correspondent of the Newcastle
Chronicle writes: "It is said that
Mr. Gladstone has changed his
mind about early dissolution. If
the Lords reject one or the other of
the Irish bills, he will hold an nutum
session to pass it the second time in
the Commons, as was done with the
Franchise and Redistribution bills.
If the Peers should tlnow out the
measure a second time it will be
passed by the Commons the third
time, and if again, the rejected reso
lution will follow in the spring next
year. The Prime Minister thinks
that the people want to be educated
about Home Pule and that the dis
cussion in Parliament will have the
effect of enlightening them. The
talk will probably have the effect
also of wearying Englishmen of
Irish matters, and they may be in
duced in the end, out of sheer lassitude-and
indifference, to vote for
the ministerial proposals."
