If dealing with the same subject matter are altered in a subsequent report speaks truly, the majority of the members are not of opinion Act, they are intended to bear different meanings. that the proposed "fusion” is advisable, and, if they have the courage of their opinions, they will frankly tell the Chancellor that the resolutions of the previous committee were a mistake, and THE ANNUAL ELECTIONS of persons to serve on the Metropolitan ought not to be carried out.

vestries are now taking place, or about to take place, in accordance

with the Metropolis Management Act, 1855. We believe that as STATEMENTS HAVE APPEARED in the daily papers to the effect that on yet no woman has been elected to serve upon a metropolitan vestry, the Queen's birthday, Tuesday next, the courts will not sit and that and we understand that the question whether or not a woman is the offices will be closed. The rule relating to the subject (R. S. C., eligible is considered by great authorities to be doubtful. On 1883, ord. 63, r. 22, which says that it shall not be necessary for the looking at the Act, however, we incline to think that women are courts to sit on the day appointed to be kept as the Queen's birth- eligible. By section 2 “the vestry in every parish ” within the day, is only permissive, and, Tuesday next being so near the end Act “ shall consist of a certain number of persons qualified and of the sittings, it is not improbable that several of the courts will elected as herein provided,” and by section 6 the restry elected sit on that day; and we are informed that Mr. Justice Kay has under the Act "shall consist of persons rated or assessed to the already announced his intention to do so. No order for the closing relief of the poor upon a rental of not less than £40 per annum.” of the offices had been issued up to Thursday.

No doubt the Act constantly speaks of " vestrymen,” and uses the terms “he" and "him " when referring to the members of

the vestry. But, as the Act wag passed, after Lord BROUGHAM'S THE LORD CHANCELLOR on Tuesday postponed the discussion in Act (13 Vict. c. 21), by which “in all Acts words importing the committee of the Land Transfer Bill until after Whitsuntide.

Many of the meaning of the sereral words in this Act shall not be restricted, amendments need the most careful examination to ascertain their although the same may be subsequently referred to in the masculine exact effect, and we cannot pretend this week to discuss them in detail. We may remark, however, that Mr. Gregory's letter to the Times has borne fruit in a
