The most disappointing legislature that has met since 1855 has adjourned to receive the unanimous anathemas of lts constituency. With high hopes the Democracy saw it meet January -Ith, and had no other thought than at far-hest by April, many reforms having oeen accomplished, and the work of :he egislature so promptly and well done, that it would be pointed at with pride, and made to go so far in winning the campaign of '92, that the members could come home to receive the plaudit: 'Well done, good and faithful eervants."
