sy His early training as an advocate has stood

his one of the best speakers in the As
sembly; and, without putting him quite
ot on a level with Mr. Gladstone, either as an
he orator or as it financier, we think he excels
en that statesman in his manner of presenting
afinancial subjects. Most of Mr. Glad
stone's budget speeches would have been
improved by compression. M. Magne
combines, too, with the gravity of his age
a- and his serious pursuits a genial suavity,
ed which, if it does not do away with opposi
e; tion, at least disarms resentment. He has
r- very much the appearance which we are
'- accustomed to associate with a popular
er and experienced physician. There are in
of France many able masters of economical
id science, but there is not one who combines
y, so much theoretical knowledge with the
g practical experience of M. Magne. In a
country whose first political necessity is to
" pay the bill," it is not pleasant to remem
tber that such a man has now entered his
h sixty-eighth year.
