They will be able to give news to Downing Street to-morrow : funds will rise or fall, fortunes be made or lost ; Lord B. will get up, and, holding the paper in his hand, and seeing the noble marquis in his place, will make a great speech ; and — and Mr. Doolan will be called away from his supper at the Back Kitchen...
