IMPENDING CHANGE OF THE BIIIT
It is evident tliat, from age and increasing
iufirmities, Lord Palmerston will have to re
sign his po9t of Prime Minister, and* the
signs are uo less evident jhat Mr. Gladstone
will be his successor. The ministry will then
be composed of discordant materials/as have
all the ministries which have beeu formed iu
England of late years, with the exception of
that constituted of the Tories under the lead
ership of Earl Derby. There is nothing more
remarkable in English history than the frag
mentary character of every ministry that was
formed in England since the breaking tip of
the great Whig party which earned Parlia
mentary Reform under Lord Grey. Nothiug
but the great personal popularity of Lord
Palmerston has given adhesion to the major
ity that lie conlrols in the House of Com
mons. Lord John Russell has repeatedly
failed in the same effort wheu he has assumed
the office of Prime Minister, from the want
of the same confidence in his ability and com>
sistency iu conducting the goveruinent.
It is no less remarkable that the balance of
parties has given a character of instability to
the government while its measures have not
been marked by any deviation from that line
of policy which has been thought most con
sistent with British interests. Lord Derby,,
if he had beeu Prime- Minister instead of
Lord Palmerston, would have preserved
British neutrality in the conflict between the
North and South, if we are to judge from
his parliamentary conduct during the debates
which have taken place to Parliament when
the subject has been agitated.
On questions of domestic policy the agree
meut has been no less remarkable. It seems
to be the conviction of Toffies as well as
Whigs that parliamentary reform has reach
ed the state of “finality.” On the long de
bated topic of free trade the Tories appeal
to have withdrawn all opposition, There
seems to be no contrariety of opinion be
tween the two great parties on Colonial
questions. The formation of a Confederacy
of the British North American Colonies ap
pears to meet with acquiescence from both
parties, so that it is really difficult to con
ceive what themes of parliamentary contro
It would be instructive to trace the causes
which have disintegrated the two great par
ties which have of late alternately spared
political power in the House of Commons,
for it i9 here that the great struggles for as
cendency take place.
There were three leading measures that
formed the subjects of Parliamentary discus
sion from the advent to power of Sir Robert
Peel in 1829 to the period of his death, i. e.
Catholic Emancipation, Parliamentary Re
form and Free Trade, in the order in which
we have stated them. His agency in each
of these measures led to the disintregation of
the old parties and the formation of new
ones. His advocacy of the Catholic claims
severed his connection with the Tories. w r ho,
although he was not of their order, being de
scended'from the middle classes, was com
pelled to accept him as chief. His advocacy
of Free Trade consummated the breach be
tween them. The Tories came to hate him
with the inteusest hatred for what they call
ed his defection. He had sacrificed their
most cherished religious convictions, iu liis
concessions to the Catholics, and their ma
terial interests in sui rendering protection to
Neither of these chauges could have been
delayed much longer. Public opinion was
rapidly tending to Catholic concession and
to free trade, but Sir Robert Peel was in that
position that enabled him from his ability and
influence to advance those measures materi
ally. We may date the disintegration of
parties from the period of his estrangement
from his former political associates New
party combinations immediately took place.
A third party was formed, not wholly Whig,
noi entirely Tory,but with predictions com
mon to both. Such was Sir Robert Peel's
influence und popularity that he drew off
from the old Tory party some of its most
brilliant ornaments, such as Lord Aberdeen,
Sir James Graham, Mr. . Gladstone, aud
many others. By the liberality of his con
cessions to the Catholics and to Free /Trade,
he attracted to his standard the bulk of the
Whigs, and not a few of the Radicals. With
these materials he formed a powerful, admin
istration; but it was the signal for those
new combinations which have led to the in •
stability of ministerial power of late years in
No ministry hss lasted for a longer period
than three years except that of Lord Palmers
ton, whose principle of cohesion was per
sonal popularity combined with the patriotic
forbearance of the Tories, who abstained
from opposition on several of the most im
portant questions- brought into Parliament.
It was Lord John Russell displacing Sir
Robert Peel, and Earl Derby superseding
Lord Jcftm Russell, he being scarcely warm
in bis seat before Lord Palmerston assumed
AUthia was the result of- the balance qf
parties that baa produced no leas than seven
distinct gqvernments during a period of only
twelve years. This, as we have said, has
beeu effected by those combinations that have
prevented ifce ascendancy for more tbau
a short ptriod of either of the two great par
ties, Whig# and Tories. The wMild
appear to have held the balance of power
now uniting with the Whigs, and anon with
the Tories, tlie Radicals occasionally throw
ing in their weight in tlie scale on the side of
the Whigs. It deserfioh of a latfle
section of the Tories who followed the lead
of Sir Robert Peel when he acted indepen
dently on ihe Catholic and Free Trade ques
tions, that has giyeu, a temporary, prepon
derance to the Whig#, reproach of
Democratic instability is no longer applica
ble to popular governments, when, we thug
perceive that under a hereditary niCtfarcby a
stable government becomes impracticable.
The retirement of Lord Palmerston id like
ly to produce the advent to power dually of
the Tories. The Whigs have lost that prin
ciple of cohesion which they derived from
the personal popularity of that uoblemau.
That party has beeu deprived by deafe With
in a short period, of some of its most shiuing
lights—Sir George Cornewell Lewis, Sidney
Herbert and the Duke of Newcastle. Mr.
Gladstone will make a desperate throw tor
the Premiership chi the retirement of Lord
Palmerston, and he may succeed for a short
time, for although A man of resplendent ora
torical ability, he has not the
the Whig partv, and his defection from the
Tories makes him very little le9s hated by
them than was Sir Robert Peel. What in
creases the chances of the Tories under Lord
Derby succeeding to place and power, is tyo
late event of the collapse of the Southern
Confederacy. This event has uo doubt
strengthened the Conservative party through
out Eurppe, for it is uot the result of
flict, where there was such great disparity
of resources, hut the tendency to disorganiza
tion of Democratic institutions, that will be
regarded- . * * *
A Scrap of History.
[From the N. Y. Times, May 29 ]
Apropos of the complaint of Gen. Sher
man that his correspondence with General
Johnston, respecting the amnesty before the
capitulation of the rebel t roops in North Ca
rolina, lias been withheld from the public by
the Secretary of War, it is as well to relate the
following comment, the truth of which
will not be questioned. Ju9t before General
Grant initiated his splendid campaign against
Vicksburg, in the spring of 1863, and after
all the preparations had been made for
swinging loose from ttye base of supplies on
the Mississippi river, to make the circuitous
inland march via Jackson, Miss , to the rear
of Vicksburg, he was called upon by Gen.
Sherman, aud spoken to as follows :
“Gen. Grant, I feel it to be my duty to say
that, as a subordinate officer, I am bound to
give you my hearty co-operatioa in this
movement; but, having no faith in it, I feel
it due to my military reputation to protest
against it iu writing, and hope that my pro
test will be forwaided by you to Washing-
“ Very well, Sherman," quietly replied the
Commanding Genera], “'send along your pro
test, I’ll take care of it.”
The next day General Grant received Gen
eral Sherman’s papers, and the movement
was llien initiated, which culminated, in less
than three months, in the surrender of Vicks
burg and its immense garrison. .Prior, how
ever, to Pemberton’s capitulation, but after U
was morally certain that the rebtlstronghold
must fall, General Sherman rodagnpato Gen
eral Grant’s headquarters one day, aqd found
his chief stretched on the ground beneath his
‘rty, '■ endeavoring to keep as
in the sultry midsummer weather. They
were chatting pleasantly on the*pfo|frectß of
the quickly approaching success when Gen
eral Grant’s assistant adjutant general came
up and asked him for a certain pttoei: qT offi
It is well known that Generalffatatijf enter
ed upon the campaign without
sonal baggage than a tooth-bnfSh,. *‘ana this
accounts for thO fact that his official records
were carried in the breast-poeketfof bis mili
tary blou*. -Taking a
from this receptacle he selected the one that
had been asked for,-and before putting the
rest away drew forth a secorfd paper from
the pile. Then, turning to SlSßraiwMavith a
merry twinkle in his eye, he aa4d. , »>V‘By the
by, General, here is somethin* » t wWch „ will
’interest you.” Sherman took Jf, a^dsaw the
“protest" which a little aforeg than two
months before he had handed to. General
Grant, to be forwarded to Washington
through the proper channel. An expression,
half astonishment and half gratification, dif
fused itself over Bherman’a war-worn features,
which quickly changed .to dt# »of.supreme
satisfastibn when General Off#took the
paper froYn his hand, and, taring it' into
small fragments, scattered them to the
winds. No further allusion tot he rrftttter was
made on either side.
