The press of the australian colonies has not been lacking in the Supply of a full True and particular account of the sayings and doings of the Dele Gates at the Federal convention the business transacted however has been confined in a very exclusive extent to the abstract and general principles of federation the details of which we Are left to learn from the draft Bill which in due course it will be necessary to give prominent publicity to throughout the colonies inter ested. It can hardly be hoped to pass a measure of such comprehensive legislation without submitting the minutest provisions of the Bill to the various states concerned. Much will doubtless be said on the subject of the name by which it is proposed to designate the Union. Shakespeare was of opinion that there is nothing in a name but it remains to be seen if lesser Britain will not View with ominous significance the designation of the Commonwealth of Australia As applied to the Federated states of Australasia and it will unquestionably take time to extinguish the associations historically connected with the word in the English mind and to educate it to a dispassionate contemplation of its revival. To Western Australia with her comparatively unencumbered heritage it remains to decide if she will consent to assume the liabilities involved in this Gigantic company of plunging partners. The question briefly to be decided is whether the Virgin wealth of Western Australia is to be made the common property of any impecunious state or As the convention graphically expresses it the Commonwealth of Australia. At the convention even it was alleged that federation meant the wealth of Australia made common to new South Wales and Victoria by reason of its disproportionate preponderance of representatives. Unless the quid pro quo is much extended we take leave to doubt whether Western Australia with her isolated position and physical barriers to reciprocity will be a Participator in the fruition of an Early federation. Alienated by the physical features that isolates our Colony from its Neighbours and dears us from the Clobe communion that Fosters and regulates the relations and interests i of the Eastern colonies it will doubt i less be deemed no less necessary than prudent to defer our Entrance into the charmed Circle of the common wealth until the formidable obstacles that nature has intervened to obstruct our Commerce has been corrected and removed by the Commonwealth which i to be effective must be aimed to bind us in closer Harmony and Accord and which can Only be effected by a line of railway to unite us with South Australia and without which our connection with federation can be ouly nominal the startling proposition has been advanced and accepted by the convention that any member of the convention agreeing to the pro posed Bill will be bound in honour to to Bis Best to get it carried through the parliament of his Colony. This is an extraordinary pledge to demand when it is considered that the Bill at debt and by its warmest supporters has been characterised As a Bill of com promises and a it is certain in its present form to meet with Strong opposition in both new South Wales and Victoria on the question of the Powers of the Senate we apprehend the same Fate will follow it in Many other quarters and especially so in our own Colony when the details of the measure is before the Public. Or. A. Forrest whilst alone in this Colony s representatives in voting on the title of the Bill embracing the term Commonwealth raised a crucial Point in a practical and patriotic Rei Renoe to the circumstances of this Colony on the subject of payment of members and the Colony will unquestionably support him in his Contention against such an unjustifiable and iniquitous impost and the question must be asked and satisfactorily answered As to what we Are to receive in return for. Our Large contribution to the enormous expenditure that will be required for the maintenance of the common wealth. If in the language of the Hon. J. W. Hackett the practical test is applied of each Colony Basing its support to the Bill upon the amount of Benefit accruing to a Colony from its adoption we opine that the views entertained on the subject will be very divergent. It would be pre mature to Deal with the minutiae details of the Bill As it will shortly be before the Colony in its entirety. The Tariff question has not been touched upon and the Federal City was a subject too dangerous to approach and whether the lower House As representing the people is to Wield the balance of Power has vet to be deter mined the basis of representation As decided upon Willarae tidally reduce West Australia to a nominal depend ency without political Power or in fluence in the Commonwealth. The abolition of tha privy Council As a court of Appeal has already evoked much Adverse criticism and or. R. C. Baker very expressly and tersely characterised the Bill As aiming at the government of the people of Australia by the people of new South Wales and Victoria and there is much Force in the observation. We think that nothing Short of sir Geo. Grey s motion will meet the exigencies of the. Case and Trust with him. That before the Bill to constitute the Commonwealth of Australia is Laid before the British parliament it should be submitted and adopted by a majority of the plebiscite or Australia to which each voter should give a single vote.

Sale the superintendent of census expressing the Hope that any persons who have reason to believe that they have been Over looked will communicate with him direct.

Pany during their stay in this Colony �1,000 profit having been netted As the result of a season of Only ten weeks. They would carry with them the warmest recollections and or. Taylor said that having done so Well the Colony would never want a Good word from Bim. He hoped to re visit the Colony in about two years time the eastward mail by which Quiny were hoping to hear of rain having fallen on the Murchison arrived in Geraldton on monday evening last. We regret however to have to state says the victorian express that it did not bring the news we were so for no serious result we should mention is anticipated by those settlers who have had the Good sense and the Means to provide Wells on their stations but unless rain soon comes those who Are unprepared not for a Rainy Day but for a dry season Mast inevitably suffer very serious losses and a Baa lambing.

The overcrowded state of the vessel. Or Forrest hoped that the Board would see that the regulations with regard to the Cumber of passengers allowed on such boats were strictly enforced in the future. It has Beau decided by the Board that the commissioner of police be requested to commission the police officer who accompanies such Steamer Down the port River when he thought that the vessel was carrying More than the authorised number of Pace engers to Check the Nui Noer.
