TO THE EDITOR. Sm,— For brilliancy and magnetic influence over the minds of some, the oration was admirable. How far, however, does the end justify the means ? Are assassinations, houghing cattle, shooting defenceless womeD, etc., to become more powerful agents in redressing grievances than the Parliament or Press ? If Mr Gladstone and those leaders (and how easily we are all led) acting with him were to denounce these outrages and refuse to agitato till they were stumped out many could admire him, None of us can withstand public opinion; yet the Careys and those applauding murders, we trust, will never educate us to this mode of redress. Politicians seem to go to any extreme for a majority, leaving the peaceful citizsn to find revenue and suppress outrages. That Mr Gladstone will in the end have a majority is certain, and the interminable Irish question, like Tennyson' 3 brook, will go on for ever, stirring up irritation and strife even amongst us colonists. Dogb Mr not grasp this ? —I am, etc, Nota Bene. Dunedin, August 17.
