fltteedved Sept. 10, 10.40 a.m.) FEDERATION. Sydney, September 10. The " Sydney Morning Herald," in »ti article referring to the discussion of the New Zealand Parliament on Federation, states that those here who favor federation would have been glad of the presence of New Zealand delegates at the convention, as they would have been able to contribute suggestions, andcrfifcise the question from their point of ▼SW and could have exercised an influence in shaping the Federal plan, which might have made it easier tor New Zealand to join when that colony had found the time had come. The " Herald" adds that the flat refusal of New Zealand to take part in the Conference is of great importance possibly to the future of these colonies, £nd certainly to that of New Zealand. If it says, her position is to be materially altered by inclusion it will also be by exclusion. Insularity of feeling will cut off for the future any blending of fortunes of Australia and New Zealand, and leaves the latter colony permanently more dependent upon assistance from the Mother Country,
