[per reuter’s agency.] Looks like a Settlement. Melbourne, Juno 16. At a sitting of the conference of the joint committees of the Council and Assembly to-day, Mr Ramsay’s proposals for a possible compromise on the Reform question were agreed to, and a Bill embodying the same was introduced in the Legislative Assembly to-night. Amicably Settled. Melbourne, To-day. The Reform Bill, framed on the basis of proposals made by Mr Ramsay and adopted by a conference of joint committees yesterday, was passed through the Assembly last evening, forthwith transmitted to the Legislative Council, where it was also carried through all stages without discussion. Great satisfaction is expressed on all sides on the compromise which has been effected between the two Houses. J
