(ftt fRBSS ASSOCIATION.) - London, January 5. In the course of an interview with Lord Hampden (formerly Sir H. Brand) Speaker of the House of Commons, he said that Federation was desirable, but its accomplishment was remote at present. He thought it would be dangerous m view of the somewhat loose relations of the Colonies to the v Mother Country. The Blake difficulty 1 should act as a warning to sanguine Federationißttt It was imperatively necessary from the nature of the elements to be dealt with, that federation should be brought about gradually. It mast also be elastic m character, and limited to the control of Customs, police and military arrangement What might be possible m Ireland and Scotland might be found intolerable m the colonies. Lord Hampden concluded by saying he thought it wonld be found impossible to create a' uniform tariff. He did not consider the imposition of a protective tariff on British imports by the colonies T would be an obstacle to federation.
