ing u'o a Lord Sackville's issuance oZ
the fmhiet in which he makes an

Bavrd., savs: A very foolish, ill
mannered, ill-timed, and ill-made
paaphlet has been issued by Lord
Sackville with the purpose of iujuring
the reputation of Mr. Bayard, now the
United States Ambassador, charging
him with being a~ political trickstez
and a consistent and determined enemy
.uc England. The whole thing is so
fuil of thoughtless bitterness that itis
not wort while to reproduce any part
of the brochlre. We only hope that
the comniou sense and practical judg
ment (f the English and Americai
publil will treat ihis un-called-for at
tack withl contemptuols disdain.
