Victoria the First

From an attentive consideration of the above statement, which is drawn up with as much accuracy as possible, from the Rolls and Journals of both Houses of Parliament, the following facts may be deduced :

In the first place it appears that, since the year 1509 (when it is generally supposed that the duration of Parliaments was extended beyond one year), only four Parliaments have existed beyond seven years, and that only ten more have had a sexennial duration.

In the second place, it is sufficiently evident that, of the rest, only ten Parliaments have lasted above five years, only six Parliaments above four, and three above three years.

Thirdly, of the remaining number, only eleven existed above two years, and no less than thirty-seven for a shorter period.

Lastly, it is certain that, one Parliament with another, the duration of each, since the reign of Henry VII., does not exceed the space of two years and about nine months, even including the long Parliament in the reign of King Charles I., and the still longer one which his son retained in existence for the enormous period of nearly seventeen years.

OFFICERS OF STATE.

THE LORD STEWARD'S DEPARTMENT.

The estate of the Queen's household is entirely committed to the Lord Steward,

to be ruled and governed by his discretion ; and all his commands in court are to be obeyed ; his uuthority reaches over all the officers and servants of the Queen's house, except those of the Queen's chamber, stable, and chapel. Under the Lord Steward, in the compting-house, are the treasurer of the household, comptroller, cofferer, master of the household, clerks of the green cloth, fic. It is called the compting-house, because all the accounts and expenses of the Queen's household are daily taken and kept in it.
