Mr. Craig SELLAR, M. P., writing to his constituents at Jedburgh,  states
that the great measure of next session will, in all probability, be a  Local
Government Bill of a comprehensive character, for which there is more  necessity
in England than in Scotland.

 There is a great scheme in preparation, and not far from completion  dealing
with municipal reform in London. That measure is much wanted, and will  
materially affect the well being of a population of four millions, who are  living
under the most anomalous rule of any population in Europe.

 Among other subjects likely to be brought forward are a Bankruptcy  Bill,
Patent Laws, and a Corrupt Practices Bill.
