(By Telegraph.—Own Correspondent) WELLINGTON, this day. The "Post," commenting on the Government's proposal, expresses appreciation of the step taken, but considers the Government wrong in committing the country to the expenditure without consulting Parliament. "This, however," adds the "Post/ , "is a quarrel -which must be settled privately later, and we do not care to conclude at such a time as this with a critical note. In its imperial, as distinguished from its constitutional aspect, the action of the Government is admirable. It has given great encouragement to our friends in the Old Country; not that they are running short of money, but that their hearts are touched by a S3-mpathy which is spontaneous and disinterested."
