Sydney, October 16. In the House of Assembly there •was a good deal of unseemly squabbling over the position of the Speaker. Mr M'Millan commenced to deliver his Financial Statement late this evening. He defended the Government from the attack that they wished to appeal to the country during the present labour crisis, and said that working men were not m a position to calmly consider fiscal matters. He explained that had it not been for the industrial crisis the revenue of the Colony for the last half year would have fully realised the glowing anticipations. The delivery of the statement had not concluded when the Telegraph Office closed.
