MR PARNELL AND THE FREEDOM OF EDINBURGH.

TO THE EDITOR. Sik,—Amidst so much hysterical adulation of Mr C. S. Parnoll and his friends, it must be gratifying to all true Scotchmen, and to all earnest advocates of the maintenance of the unity of the Empire, to find that the Lord Provost of Edinburgh has announced his intention of indicating by hie absenoe from the ceremony his disapproval of the presentation of tho freedom of the city to Mr Parnell. Wbafc, after all, I ask, faai Mr Fusell

done that such an honor should be conferred on him ? He has partly—and only as yet partly—cleared himself of some of the gravest of the charges which liave been brought against him. But surely this is no reason why his name should be associated with those of such servants of the State as Palmerston, Bright, Disraeli, Forster, and Salisbury ? I am no prophet, sir, but I am much mistaken if you and your contemporaries do not ere long see cause to alter your views on this question. Meantime, I am curious to see what Mr Parnell will do under these somewhat peculiar circumstances. One thing is certain, should he accept the honor (?) it will be robbed of all real significance, a large minority of the Council having voted against the presentation, and the Chief Magistrate having intimated his disapproval by his absence.—l am, etc , J.D. Port Chalmers, June 15.
