Sib,—Statesmen at Home and in the colonies are beginning to see the delicate negotiations necessary to a final result. For defence purposes we can with safety say it Is accomplished. For ourselves in the colonies, before attempting too much, would it not be better tentative measures towards a united Australasia be directed ? The ever complex tariffs could be for the present let severely alone ; time and experience will solve this problem. What could be done, however, by diplomatic correspondence between the various colonies tending to bind uo in the immediate would be this : criminals migrating from one colony to another, and committing offences in each, should by law have tneir sentences announced when convicted ; more uniformity in the bankruptcy laws of each colony j professional men subject to less restriction—for instance, barristers and solicitors, surveyors, etc., passing in one colony allowed at once to practice in each and all. Perhaps those legislators interesting themselves (and whoshould not ?) will in the coming session of Parliament move toward the desired end.— I am, etc., Federation. Dunedin, May 16.
